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. .4 Hllllllplgwlgllllll ..,,.,......,.President S. G. H. Turner ................. ........,.......,.......,.

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 and homemaking. 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 Page eighty-six 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 and see! X E 1 .W .ip iI9.??1 he i 1 Iiiglmlz IS. IlCI1IN.1I'I, If.

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. Page ninety 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 big sisters. 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 evening. li. l.cLl1cn, Aldrich, XVriglu, N.

Engel. 1. 1 Helen Bostelmann 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. A. McClenahan, P.

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 and discussion.

GLEE CLUB 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 In 21 program originating in New York. In the near future, with the transportation difficulties eased, Elmira's Glee Club may again plan such trips and, also, more inter-collegiate programs. Page one lmnclrecl four X "fx ' "1-. 'xr-.

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 held. 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 i ' " ' ' ' ' ' l'l-. . ll'ftii'tastes. how man,s clothing changes with political events. contemporary thoughts ant it t is. int s ii i i, 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- plished by painting designs in oil on tile "hot plates' and selling them. So you see. the eluh can he practical, too. l the Elmiri Att Club invited tis to w-teh them paint in NVe became privileged spectators w men ' 4 ' .. different mediums from the same model.

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 puppet show. .

'Q l DEBATE couNclL 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. i 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. 1 During the next few years, the Debate Council looks forward ,. to reorganization on a wider scope.

I I I 1 Page OCTAC-:ON "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- roundings. 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 as Editor. Front Row: B. Rapp, M. Hannay, Colburn, A. Lambert, B.

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. i ij l STAFP Seated: 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. hl ' A b l' lea ue was among the new features of the at etic ow ing g year.

Coz QZWJ 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.

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 year- 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.
