We dedicate our yearbook to a man
famous for his hearty laugh. With his
very pleasant Wife he has been an im-
portant part of our three years at
Elmira. We remember him as a favor-
ite of ours in Alumnae lounge, as a star
in our Gay Nineties show sophomore
year, and as a genial host on Sunday
nights at his home. Our remembrance
is flavored by his particular brand of
humor and his comfortable good na-
ture. We dedicate our yearbook to an
exemplary patron saint, Dr. Rutenber.

THE CLASS OF 1946
Our metamorphosis is nearly complete. Four
academic years have slid by since we arrived
as hopeful Freshmen in the fall of 1942. The
class of 1946 was a title full of awe for us,
but '46 seemed a long way off. Now itis here
and May 13 is in sight. We are about to become
"hopeful Freshmen" in the world of business
We have had eight semesters that were
crammed full of activities-extra-curricular
and the other kind. XVe had the distinction of
being the first group subjected to C.C. We
entered into the keeping of Elmira traditions
Big Sisters, May Queen, Patron Saint, class
rivalries all became a part of our college re-
membrances. Hearty singing heightened our
conception of a friendly campus.
The strain of late rehearsals for Senior Week-
end left us resembling "Elvira,', the Blilfhe
Spirit of our play. When the appointed hour
arrived, the student body discovered that our
class suits weren,t plaid after all! We all felt
pretty proud as, attired in trim black gabardine,
we sang our morning songs in the dining room.
Junior Prom at the Twain was another happy
occasion. So many of our men were "home for
keeps" that it seemed like good times were back
to stay! Second semester we all got writer's
cramp filling out job applications. "Well, it
wonit be long nowlv is the theme of Cowle Bin
conversations. And it won't, either! We'll soon
be stepping out of college days into working
hours, taking the world in stride.
We may be gone, but Elmira wonit be for-
gotten. It would be hard to forget the place
where we spent four years of our lives, the spot
where we grew up. Letters from Little Sisters
will keep us up to date on the latest college
news, and we'll make return visits-just wait

CLASS OF 1948
"Slap Bang Here Again, Class of '48" was
the melodious announcement to any diners
without earplugs of the 'lcoming of age" of the
Sophomore class. No more had we to await the
beck and call of upperclassmen to burst into
song. We were on our own!
Although this privilege had put us on top
of the world, the sight of the new and different
MacKenzie really made us feel like queens. As
a proper christening ceremony, the cottage resi-
dents Qfalling victims to the newest crazej, sent
showers of glistening bubbles from the balcony
in an extended four-day celebration.
The Sophomore bubble burst, however, when
we were every place but the right place one day
in September-the place being Brandt Park.
The Frosh and Juniors started their picnic all
by themselves that day, for even Frankie's
efforts on our behalf were in vain. But we did
manage to salvage a few left-over hot-dogs and
some cake for our troubles.
We regained our prestige by sponsoring an
informal barn dance a few weeks later. We
tapped the new supply of civilian dates from
Cornell and elsewhere and led them to the Gym.
The traditional cornstalks and pumpkins trans-
formed the place into a suitable gathering spot
for the Soph country bumpkins and their dates.
Then, before we knew it fdates, dates all the
time, you knowj, Senior Week-end had arrived.
The event found us rushing to find original
corsages and keeping in voice to do justice to
the songs we had composed in honor of our
We had no sooner recuperated from Senior
Week-end than the vexation of choosing our
little buddies was the order of the day. Vexation
because we were determined to make a puzzle
of the affair. "Two little objects worn low,
covered with red to showf, and similar riddles
produced the desired effect on the poor Frosh,
who spent the better part of their day scrutiniz-
ing forty-eighters in search of some manifesta-
tion of their clue.
The end of the Soph social whirl came with
the Magic Carpet Dance in an Arabian Nights
atmosphere. We had a wonderful time, and the
choosing of the Sultan's favorite four own
Bobby Crowleyj created an extra bright spot in

THE CLASS OF 1949
The class of '49 entered Elmira on Victory
Day, to create a small turmoil in a world sud-
denly at peace.
We met our Big Sisters, explored our college,
and soon discovered that September was a month
for wienies. Sophomore picnic, Senior picnic,
Junior picnic, or dining room-toasted, roasted,
or boiled-that month we ate wienies.
October came, and brought with it piles of
leaves outside and piles of homework within.
Nevertheless, we found time to Search for our
Buddies, to worry about dates for our first col-
lege prom, and to learn songs to be sung in the
dining room. Will we ever forget those songs,
so feverishly composed and so sleepily rehearsed!
November was a noisy month. The bridge
fiends were heard teaching all newcomers to
"play a handf' and Culbertson was heard moan-
ing piteously at the rules we forgot and those
we invented. Louder than all the sounds to-
gether, was the combined cry, "Yeah, Botsy!
Give a cheer for Dr. Lachlv that Hlled the audi-
torium when we announced our president and
our Patron Saint.
The months sped by, Christmas vacation came
and went, and we found ourselves in February.
It was then that we anticipated the flowers that
bloom in the spring, tra-la, by blossoming forth
in our maroon blazers. At last we were fully-
fledged college members.
And now we feel ready to take our places as
Sophomores, and to watch the new Freshmen
laugh and groan and gape at the wonders of
college, as the class of '49 did so long ago.

Student Fellowship is responsible for a large part of the friendly, happy atmosphere
that is found on campus. Freshmen are welcomed at the beginning of each year by the
Student Fellowship with an informal afternoon of games and relaxation. At the all-
college sings sponsored by the organization, both faculty and students participate.
The most important activity of Student Fellowship is the direction of the Sunday
Vesper Services. Prominent national or local religious leaders speak at Vespers, and they
often stay for informal discussions with interested students.
The Bazaar that Student Fellowship gives at Christmastime, with its festive holiday
decorations and charming gift suggestions, is one of the high spots of the year,
Included in the Student Fellowship's activities are monthly programs with guest
speakers who bring to the attention of the students stimulating topics for Consideration

The Glee Club is more than a tradition at Elmira-it is a large and active
organization with well-directed abilities. It is composed of ninety alto and soprano
voices. Concerts were given at the Veterans' Hospital at Bath, New York, and for
Elmira's Newcomers, Club. In addition it gave a joint concert with the Harvard
Glee Club. By its constant attendance and consistently fine singing, the Glee Club
has been a most vital part of the Sunday Vesper services.
The very able and accomplished leader of Glee Club is Mr. Gwynn Bement.
Many of his own published arrangements are used and his approval is well worth
working for. Members in Glee Club, from all four classes, have a very special spirit
of cooperation and unity.
The cultural values of the Glee Club are enhanced by the discriminating selec-
tion of music. This year an outstanding work has been t'The Requiemn by Ga-
briel Faure, which was sung with the Harvard Glee Club.
Some years ago, the Elmira College Glee Club was heard all over the country

Early in the fall, the whole Chapel was startled one dai'
as a group on the stage, dressed in smocks and beards, ea.-
vorted, sang, and gesticulated wildly. This was just the
Elmira College Art Club's way of letting the tudent body.
especially the trembling freshmen, know of the benefits of
joining the club. In spite of the nonplussed audience, the
club found its ranks swelling when the first meeting was
Throughout the fall, the members were kept busy mak-
ing posters, painting jigger glasses, and even attempting to
make aprons! XVinter meetings included Mr. Carleton
Burke's lectures on photography, accompanied by his col-
ored films, and Mr. Norman Kcnt's exhibition of the paintings of his elose friend, l..irs lloftrup.
Next came the joint meeting with the Elmira Art Club. NVe'll never forget how those artists
good-naturedly criticized each other's work. They moved trees, darkened skies. eliminated rocks, and
went way over our heads about rhythm, balance, and perspective.
Mrs. Bernt charmed us, soon after Christmas, with her discussion on the history ol' eostume and

Then came that day when the club members faced reality and discovered that their luxurious tastes
were entirely too extravagant for their bankbook, so they set about to make money. This was accom-

LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
Page one lzimclred six
This year an unusually large French Club, presided over by Florence
Ubertini, has continued their practice of having monthly meetings. Aided
by Miss Grimes, assistance as faculty advisor, they've done all sorts of
things during the year.
First there was a bridge party-all in French, of course. Even the bid-
ding! U1z pique, deux Coeurs, that's one even we knew! This bridge party
was followed by an illustrated lecture on some of the best known cathedrals
in France. Then, just before Thanksgiving, several members of the group
put on a mock radio program. Added to a dramatized fable, songs and
poetry, was a comic advertisement advising the purchase of Miss Grimes'
and Miss Lanche's latest grammar book. Christmas brought a party in
Tompkins lounge with all the Yuletide spirit.
With the beginning of the New Year, everyone in French Club got
started on their particular job for 'tKnock,'-the club's dramatic presenta-
tion for this year. With the play over, the club's latest endeavor was 2

I This year, the Debate Council, headed by Barbara Hagen, has been limited in its activities by
wartime restrictions. Due to lack of sufficient funds and to the difficulties in the matter of
transportation, they have not been able to participate in their usual activities.
At present, this organization, with Miss Quinlan as faculty advisor, has been forced to limit
rr . . . . . . .
il itself to subscribing to many magazines, all of which are of broad current interest to their group.
U One of the few activities which they have been able to continue during the war is the yearly
panel discussions with Wells and Cornell.

"It is with good will and a deep sense of responsibility that a
new staff begins publication of the Octagon." With these well
considered words, the 1946 Octagon staff took office last April.
Well aware of the changing order that was to prevail during
this year, Bunny Hagen and her staff set themselves to the job
of being balance wheel to an entire school.
During this year, arrangements were made and voted upon
by the entire student body changing the position of managing
editor, to an elective one. In addition, the post of assistant
editor was to be an editorially chosen staff member from the Senior class. Long active on the staff,
Joyce Colburn was chosen for this position.
A valuable addition has been a weekly article by some guest columnist- an article on some subject
of either college, national, or international present-day interest. Aside from these innovations, there
have been no drastic changes made--either in the format, policy or style of this year's Octagon.
Editorials of vitally pertinent interest to every one on campus have been frequently presented, as
have letters to the Editor. Both of these features have been noticeably strong both in the opinions
expressed and in their manner of presentation. Octadotes, campus briefs and the week-by-week
calendar of social activities have continued to keep us in constant touch with our immediate sur-
During the year, there have been several six-page issues, including one devoted to the Herald
Tribune Forum and one principally concerned with spring election on campus. This year, for the first
time, the staff has put out a cartoon book collected from Octagon cartoons of the year's issues.
This year, as every year, Octagon had its annual banquet with Mr. William Avirett, Education
Director of the New York Herald Tribune, as guest speaker. The entire staff who have worked
consistently and well throughout the year, look forward to a banner year in '47 with Alice Byrne

Iris is our summing up process for which
the junior year is particularly suited. During
that year, if ever, the meaning of college life
becomes apparent. It is a time of reviewing What
is past and of plotting the future. Thus our
preoccupation with doors, which seem to us
peculiarly expressive of our conflicting visions.
Here, in words and pictures, is our college
life. Here, principally, is the junior class, in a
translation from act, mood, and motive. Here
are sixty-nine girls at an important point in
their careers, presented in company with their
Elmira friends, with their established organiza-
tions as a background.
Here, on this page, are the juniors chosen by
lj B- Wheelock, F- Wilson. M- Wilder: their class to handle the presentation of this
i P- Gfahilma R- TITCVCUCB A- M- Paqum- yearbook. We are indebted to more than these
j 3 few pictured here.
j l Q Working on Iris has proved to be a profitable experience for our
' Q Editor and her staff. A great deal of credit is due a great many juniors
for duties fulfilled and crises met. Members of other classes and
heads of organizations have been more than helpful-for which We
I are most grateful.
i We hope that in this, our yearbook, our many-voiced utterances
have not been inarticulate.

A. A. Council started the new year with high hopes and strong r x
purpose, intent on increasing interest and participation in ath- I' A 9
letics. The year began with hockey and baseball, in which the 4 5
students showed a lively interest. Three practices a week were the
rule until the weather closed the fall season. Under the circum- ,vawx
stances, not all the inter-class games could be played off, and no
class was named winner.
A b l' lea ue was among the new features of the at etic

Every year in early spring, there is a great deal of speculation as to which senior will be named
White Blazer Girl. Although awarded by A. A., this honor is not an award for achievement in
athletics alone. Interest and participation in sports are a major consideration, but added to these
points are character, leadership, and scholarship throughout the four college years.
Last year, Sally Cory Riggs was a natural choice for this award. Actively interested in sports
throughout her college life, she was President of A. A. during her senior year. Her ability as a leader
and her contagious enthusiasm strengthened A. Afs position as a college organization. Thanks to her
untiring efforts, many new activities were introduced, making it possible for every girl to participate
in a sport in which she had a genuine interest.
Sally not only had a broad interest in athletics, she was active in many other ways. A class officer
in her freshman and sophomore years, she was elected junior class president. She took part in
several dramatic productions while in college.
Because she suited so well the qualifications for an ideal Wfhite Blazer Girl and because she was
sincerely and actively interested in all campus activities, Sally Cory Riggs was well worthy of the
honor of being named our White Blazer Girl.

HE Trustees whose names appear on page 6 send greetings
to Elmira College's daughters everywhere. An educational
institution is the lengthened shadow of its alumnae. Without
their feelings of loyalty and their active cooperation and support
it cannot very well exist. We still need more students of the
proper kind, students who are qualified in every way for entrance
to Elmira. There has been no relaxation of standards and there
will be no compromise in quality. To every alumna who reads
this page, the Trustees urge that you help during the coming
1. By telling your acquaintances of the good points of the College.
2. By finding good students in your community, telling them
about Elmira College, and writing the Director of Admissions
or the President giving their names and addresses.
3. By writing the President, for the benefit of the Administra-
tion of the College and the Trustees, anything you know that
will help make the College better.
We Thank You for Your Past Cooperation
