Our social and academic experif
ences at Elmira College have taught
us the "why's and where's" of
life. They have taught us how to
differentiate between good and
evil, how to evaluate the worth of
words, and how to deal with
varying situations. We have
learned of individual and of uni'
versal life in their entirety-what
made them as they are, and how we
might make them better. Our
training, also, has enriched us in
our understanding of people and
through the actions of others, we
have learned much about ourselves.
In the light of this, therefore, what
is more appropriate than to mold
this record of our days at Elmira
around the three great stages of all
life-the Past, the Present, and

Dr. and Mrs. Karl Dannenfeldt
Actually, the dedication does not
lie in these words alone, but in the
heart of every member of Hftyftwo.
Each one of us realizes how much
we would have missed if we had
not come to know such wonderful,
sincere people as the Dannenfeldts.
The Sunday night suppers, the
Koffee Klatches in the Cowle Bin,
and the undying support of our
various activities all went into
making them the perfect Patron
Saints. More dear to us, however,
was the open door and ready
hospitality, the unfailing "hello",
and the active interest they so
generously showed toward each
one of us. This book, then, is a
small part of the complete "thank
you" which we hope someday can
be manifested in its entirety to our
Elmira parents,-Dr. and Mrs.

DR. LEWIS ELDRED
A friendly smile and hello for everyone characterizes
Dr. Eldred. By extending their hospitality to us, he
and his family have made us really feel that Elmira is
our home. Dr. Eldred's humor, evident either when
introducing a convocation speaker, or just talking
with one of usg his interest, and his keen sense of
fairness make us all like and admire him. He personihes
the true Elmira spirit.
DEAN LOUISE T. PAINE
Do you need some good advice or do you just feel like
chatting? Dean Paine is the answer to your problem in
her office or in her home. Those Saturday night open
houses: a fire in the Hreplace, canasta and bridge
games, the table full of cake and coffee, and the Dean

The presidents of the classes and the other organizaf
tions on campus make up the executive council. Their
chief responsibilities are to do whatever may be necesf
sary to improve the extrafcurricular life of the students
and to encourage active interest and participation in
all of the clubs and classes. Among its more specific
obligations are the planning of the social calendar and
the appointment of Centennial Chairman and the all'
college Christmas party chairman. It also provides a
central body which can promote interfgroup cooperaa
tion and aid.
In their meetings, these twentyfone girls discuss
any problem which a member society may be having,
and bring it to the attention of the student body and
faculty. From these discussions have come many sugf
gestions which have considerably improved life out'
side the classroom for all members of the college
Doris Carlson, Secretary
Marilyn Hezinger, President
Whenever we are asked about Elmira College, one of
the first points We think of to explain is that we are
under an Honor System, and that the immediate ref
sponsibilty for the smoothfrunning student affairs is
invested in a governing body of the students them'
selves. Elmira is not unique in these respects, but it is
one of the few colleges where such a system has been
successfully tried and established. Individually and
collectively this success belongs to us, who, through
our belief and cooperation in this democratic system,
strengthen it with the years.
As with the larger democracies of the world, so
with our own selffgoverning community, the earnest'
ness and integrity of each individual, those governed
as Well as those governing, determine the quality and
success of this system. In signing the honor pledge,
we are pledging ourselves to the responsibilities and
active support of a system under which we are proud
Student Fellowship on the campus of Elmira has tried
to bring about a better understanding of the different
religious denominations. Especially this year, it has
tried to show us how important religion is in our daily
lives, and what relation religion has to the world crises.
The talks during Religious Emphasis Days by Rev.
Mr. William Kirkland and the discussions led by him
were most enlightening and were a real inspiration
bringing questions to our minds, and provoking us to
think. Vesper services each Sunday night provided a
few minutes each week for us to be quiet and thought-
ful together. The candlelight service at Christmas
time was particularly beautiful, and made us all feel
that someday there would truly be Peace on Earth.
The annual Christmas bazaar saved us many steps,
and was a big success. Christmas cards were sold on
campus. The proceeds of the bazaar and the Christmas
card sale were as always put in the Silver Bay fund to
be used by our delegates this spring. Members of the
student body attended Student Christian Movement
Exam teas where students and faculty alike found a
cup of tea and cookies most relaxing, were sponsored
by Student Fellowship.
This year during' the membership drive, students
not only signed a membership card, but they also hlled
out an activity sheet stating what they would like to
do in connection with Student Fellowship. This inf
creased the active participation of the student body.
Student Fellowship was this year under the direction
of President Joan Lowry.

Trying out for parts, designing sets, cutting dia'
phragms for spot lights, painting sets, and rehearsing,
and rehearsing! The problems we faced were not typical
of those which faced most of the youth of the world,
but they were nonefthefless real. Production began
this year with a presentation by the class of '51 of
"Goodbye My Fancy", written by Fay Kanin. The
play had a special meaning for all of us, since the
author had been a student at our college, and the
play was in part based on life here. Sometime after'
wards, the junior Thespis presented "The Young and
Fair", a drama by N. Richard Nash. This play also
dealt with the life and the problems which arise in a
girls' school. Although the casts in both productions
gave excellent performances, not all of the credit must
be given to them alone, for without the patient guidf
ance of Miss Morrow, Miss Quinlan, and Miss Fitch,
we would have been little short of amateurs. We must
remember also those behind the scenes and the ofhcers
of organization. Through the efforts of many people,
Thespis has had a very successful year. The terminaf
tion of the season with the June Play will prove that
"All's well that ends well!"

Q M l Their spirit not only leads in artistic directions but into
the athletic field as Well. One was not surprised to see many
of the awards given to '53 ers at the A. A. Banquet last
year-especially in the fields of archery, golf, and tennis.
'52 will never forget the excitement of choosing buddies
and the thrills of "buddy night"-the Catacombs, Alumnae
roof, and elevator-adding the class of '53 to our family tree.
What's the problem?
Looks good from here!
Fiftyftwo has waited two years for our little sisters and here
they are-a real part of our Elmira Family. Not only do they
have looks, they have everything. They adapted themselves
from the start, taking Freshman Week right in their stride.
Last September we could only say, "We're glad you're
here!", but having lived with. them a year now, we say,
"We're glad we know you!"

L. . . the paths of all our lives, show us true to the
purple hue."-What does the purple hue mean to
'52? It means working together in Centennial skits,
Judgement Day at Elmira College, Elmira in Mother
Cooseland-it means singing together for Merry
Chanters, in the diningroom,-anytime, anywhere.
We have played together, too, taking top honors in
hockey, basketball, and softball. We'll never forget the
years spent in Cowles, Alumnae, and finally Tompf
kinsg our patron saints, the Dannenfeldtsg or Joan,
Elly and Flossie, our presidents.
Other memories which we shall hold dear are the
"Snow Ball," Mock May Day with the apes and
Indians, "Cleopatra", and "The Night Before Christ'
mas" with the chorus.
This year we had to grow up, take on the responsif
bilities of little sisters, Iris and Centennial. We have
still had time, however, to produce an hysterical ver'
sion of "The Three Bears," whip up "52 Barnyard"
and display our dramatic talent in the Junior Play,
"The Young and Fair."
So, you see, the purple hue means this and more to
come, and next year, when '52 is an actuality, and
we have to leave, in our hearts "we will always be
true to the purple hue."

She's the starryfeyed newlyfwed who can't help

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine."
Tiny Marilyn Block has more energy than any
other halffdozen '52ers put together. She is just as
prompt to do her homework as to head somewhere for
an evening of fun. Perhaps her greatest talent is her
ability to make people enjoy her company, and miss
her when she is not around.

In Ellen we have discovered the essence of the

JOY FAIRCHILD 2:41, E
"I am glad with all my heart."
What name could be more perfect for our girl with

"Soft she speaks, but all men stop to hear."
Tall, dark beauty describes Bobbie. Her quiet
humor and good sportsmanship make her an addition
to any group. She is one of the youngest, yet, in a way,
one of the oldest of the '52ers, and one of the few to
ever have been swimming in the puddle at midnight!

Always on the go from classes to work and from
work to extra classes, Mary still finds time for study
and fun. An enthusiastic sports fan and an outstandf

crown which often lead her to play a joke on a friend
or do something very thoughtful. To Mary, an idle
hour is time wasted.
VALENCIA JOHN MAMALIS

Coal black hair, sparkling eyes, and a ready smile-
that is Val. A real baseball enthusiast, she is a demon
behind a bat, yet, on the other hand, she is at her best
when ready for a prom. Always willing to lend a hand
with a picnic, or to help a friend! "Greek pastry, any'

Another personification of the spirit of '52 is this

lives are equally as well acomplished. It has been fun
to know little "Ma."

Loud will we cheer blazers and caps purple in hue,
Well to signify what will never die,
The Spirit of '52.
We have in purple pledged ourselves to be
Ruled in our hearts and in our minds by loyalty,
Loyalty that we know through the years will always grow
For El1nira's endeared in our hearts.
In purple there is richnessg
There is strength and courage too,
And the paths of all our lives
Show us true to the purple hue.

Patty Macaulay, Bev "Poco" Gould, Jean "Mother" Lucker, and
Jean Mahoney are enjoying nurses training although they aren't
too fond of wearing black stockings! Best wishes and good luck
for the future go to six former classmates who now proudly claim
the title of "Mrs", Audrey Daucher Koch, Flip Hediger Blew,
Onalee Hartman Graves, Jane Harris Wells, Joyce Hammond
Balbach, and Margie Saunders Barrows. Hats off to the girls who
have found themselves jobs, Joan Coleman and Bobby Mason as
secretaries, Eunice Howe as lab technician at the Arnot Ogden,
and Gloria Gay. To other schools have gone "Mighty Mouse"

COORDINA If ION . . . a word that can mean a lot to ou even
more than it does to us. It embodies a principle upon which our
success depends. It means the proper economy of money, mate-
rials, and time, but always bearing in mind the kind of a yearbook
you wish to have produced and of which you will be proud. BJH
learned to appreciate that principle a long time ago. It is for this
reason that we have consistently advocated the coordination of
all factors of yearbook production. We are indeed glad to have been
selected to produce this year's hook.
