They have in- spired us to lie true to God, to Church, to country, to kin, to friend - that at life's goal we may be deserving of the honors God gives to true womanhood, a womanhood cast in the mold of Our Lady, and nurtured in her halls of learning at "The Elms." 5 .4m'W"""M"""Nlhm..., --,,-f-- :1111::a::::3:21??f5?:- EQIQCZ55 VVfiifflfl.LiliEsfsssfsaesesveszffrxxrzr3:31 - 5 wfvm-g X VM?L',Z?fWg Wonifsi' sf gw .. x Q- N s..

".'lIns.t starry fair, but kindled from tezthirz .-15 't were teifli daivnf' Little old North Brooklield sent Esther to us four years ago, and, like Caesar of old, "she came, she saw, she conquered" all with her cheerful disposition and ability to make and hold friends. Esther is one of the few who, after four years, still believes firmly in the afternoon constitu- tional. She has always impressed us as the type of person who would be her own collected self under all circumstances. Possessed of a broad sense of humor and :1 radiant personality, she is sure to make friends wherever her interests may lead in the vague world which lies ahead "after graduation." Beneath the outer merry appearance which has characterized Esther's varied activity among us, we have always found an intensely philosophical attitude toward the joys and sorrows which beset the path of life, Fortunately, she is an optimist. Her rare faculty of looking beneath the surface of human activity, coupled with a certain buoyancy of spirit, expressed in the happiest smile we know, makes her an ideal companion. North Brookfield gave us Esther. XVe, reluctantly, give her back, with the hope that North Brookfield will appreciate her, as we admire and love her.

Thy turf is fixed and :mIon.vly nftwizist Yin fill thy odorous Laniji with deeds of liyflffi Helen reaches the zenith of kind, gracious affability. If loyalty in spirit, sympathy in understand- ing and altruism of soul be the requisites for success-then tomorrow's page of Helen's history is written. To have met her was a pleasure and to know her more intimately as the years went by was a treat. The class early recognized her qualities by honoring her with the presidency in Sophomore year, during which she acquitted herself nobly. Helen is a novel combination of solemn dignity and girlish enthusiasm,-an interesting companion, an earnest student. having gained distinction in everything which her able hands have undertaken during her four years with us. Helen takes the keenest pleasure in all the good things of life, but invariably reduces them to their proper positions in the scale of values. A true book lover, she has a commanding knowledge of the arts. She has natural charm that is attendant upon her person and diffused about her, VVhy give prognostications of the morrow when it is sufficiently interesting to note the actions of today, which are earnest enough of what Helen will be?

Hers is not a friendship lightly given, it is not a friendship lightly gained. Naturally all do not stop to watch "the stilled waters of even- tide," but at this the final year of our college life we all feel that in Mildred we have gained a true and loyal friend forever. And has Mildred style! Well, your latest frock is just a "tuck" behind 'tMil's." VVe suspect she subscribes for a Parisian Fashion Book: she's partial to French, you know. In fact, she intends to make it a factor in her life work whatever path she follows. But while her vocation is still undecided, Mildred has a very definite avocation, she is very fond of Terpsichore and her art. The marked zeal which accompanies her every undertaking, be it social or scholastic, reassures us in regard to Mildred's future. Whatever she does it will be a success. She will touch nothing that she will not adorn.

"S11rrc.rs is in thc way you walk tlzc patlzs of life carl: day: It's in the little tlzingx you do and in flu' things you say." We did not know "Peg" long before we were attracted by her cheerfulness and her good-nature, She has that Heaven-sent gift of being able to see the sunny side of any situation, and a witty remark, accompanied by a charming smile or a burst of pleasant laughter has brightened many a dark moment. To her may be aptly applied the quotation, "Divine1y tall, divinely fair," for she is characterized by these two qualities. One special claim to distinction is the fact that she possesses beautiful hair which-in this day and generation-is long enough to be braided and wound around her head! "Peg" is a "math" shark. Calculus and its kindred subjects are steeped in deep mystery as far as some of us are concerned, but they hold no terrors or mys- teries for "Peg." The only reason "Peg" hasn't trisected an angle is because she hasn't tried. In fact her speech in the mathematics assembly of Junior year was so interesting that it held the rapt attention of those for whom "math" is an abomination of desolation. In addition, it was one of the prize speeches of the year. "Peg's" present ambition is to be a buyer in a New York shop. fShe evidently plans to make use of' her knowledge of figuresj Here's wishing you the best of success, "Peg!"

Sziuntering her way through four short years at O. L. and into the hearts of her classmates, "Kate" has left only pleasant memories behind ber, with one clearly defined image standing out on memorys page-that of an ideal friend and loyal classmate. An admirable blending of line fellowship, sparkling personality, and winsome womanhood, she has been prominent alike in the social swim and the academic arena. ln the great outdoors, she is facile f1'i11t't'fv.r. Many times we have enviously-but proudly-watched her perform on the tennis courts or skating rink. And her unusual record in the department of mathematics assuredly belies the statement that girls cannot conquer equations and calculus. The subject has no terrors for her. In fact, she revels in its mysteries. And her solutions and lucid demonstrations of difficult problems have held us spellbound, and won the commendation of professors. Her selection as assistant business manager of the year book was a well-merited recognition of her ability to prove to anyone that he could not afford not to advertise. Surely one endowed with such talent will climb easily the stairway of life at the top of which is .VllL'L'L'XA', and, as she goes, will spread the sunshine that will bring a fervent "God speed" from all her fortunate fellow wayfarers on the pilgrimage of life. XYe don't know her life plans. She will be a Helen lYills if she goes into tennis: a XVilly Green if she chooses financeg a female Euclid if she selects the classroom, and an apostle of good cheer wherever she goes.

The sunshine of her character has added immeasurably to the brightness of these four years. Always pleasant, always thoughtful and considerate, she is loved by everyone. Though quiet and unobtrusive in manner, this gentle little girl is very efficient. VVhen called upon in Religion class to "give a reason for the faith that is in you, Margaret," she has acquitted herself notably. Time and time again her knowledge of Latin syntax has appalled and enthralled us. Even Tacitus, Seneca and the entire galaxy of Latin authors are not much more than light reading for her. Margaret does everything faithfully and well, giving the best she has to every undertaking. And when chosen Prefect of the Sodality in Sophomore year, she upheld her tradition of generous whole-hearted service. She has her enthusiasms toog and the greatest of these is "Saint Marys" Vlfestheld,-the school par excellence, famous for its unconquerable basketball team, and in the opinion of us all, more renowned still for having given to the charter class "Margaret" XVhen her ship of dreams comes in, may it be laden with all her heart's desires!

"Eyes that dauff with lifvlt dvlinlzf, Lips that suzilc, dl'Sf't"HlilIjj 11fj111f." You will no doubt find it extremely dilhcult to withdraw your gaze from the charming picture above, long' enough to peruse a rather inadequate and mediocre account of Mary. However, it will at least confirm all the complimentary anticipations which have been undoubtedly prompted by a somewhat prolonged inspection of her picture. Mary is one of those contagiously lively and vivacious individuals. She is full of animation, always sees the funny side of everything, and often creates it. She shares this fun with others by means of her quick wit and dry humor. However, there is another side to Marys character, Though not ostensibly displayed, it really is fundamentally dominant. Mary is an earnest worker, a loyal and conscientious student, and a generous, friendly comrade. This phase of her personality is revealed on such occasions as Sodality socials, when she willingly spends hours of her time to make them successful. Such a charming combination of the lighter and deeper shades of character will certainly blend to make a rich, colorful, and beautiful life for Mary. XYith her go the heartiest and happiest wishes of '3Z.

A slender girl with a pair of twinkling brown eyes, fringed with unbelievingly curly lashes, a girl with a merry smile and very expressive hands is "Kay," our class artist. She is responsible for the clever sketches which make our year book a thing of beauty. Most artists are seltish with their talent and lay the blame on their so-called temperament. "Kay" is the exception which proves the rule. She is ever willing to give time and work for the cause of her classmatesg be it for a poster, a program or a party-there is always some evidence of her handiwork. However, Katherine is "twice blessedng she paints, not only with brush and colors, but also with words and pen. She gives us neat character sketches which are the delight of her English teacher and a proof ot' her wide knowledge of human nature. Add to these natural gifts the happy faculty of making friends easily, and you will not wonder that "Kay" is ever in demand on the campus. Keep at your drawing, Katherine, so that we may grace the walls of our future alurnnae hall with the etchings of the artist of the charter class.

"Her voice was t'z'vr soft, Cvzillv. and lorug-an e.z'fellvnt thing ut ci ivan-fait." Dark eyes sparkling with merrirnent, a smile full of the joy of living, a gentle, sweet voice.- that is Clare. Her cheerfulness and ability to keep smiling have endeared her to us all. Her unquenchable good humor has lightened many a weary hour. Even philosophy orals have proved powerless to impair her joyous disposition. Clare's athletic prowess is well recognized. Few, indeed. are they who presume to challenge her at tennis, while no less formidable is her skill with a soccer ball. Music is another of Clare's accomplishments. No quartet is ever quite com- plete without her. And residents of O'Leary Hall can testify to her talent as a pianist,-and to her generosity in displaying this gift. However, of all the things she loves to do, "tripping the light fantastic" is her favorite. Statistics show that, since reaching the age of reason, she has not missed a single dance. Clare is always willing to help, and has served on numerous com- mittees, among them that of the Junior Prom. Her sincerity and honesty have won her a host of friends, and we all have learned to know and appreciate the sterling character that lies beneath Clare's happy, never failing smile. XYe feel sure that she will smile her way through life as gaily and as successfully as she has through college. Our best wishes follow you, Clare.

"fl good joke no-ze' and tlzcu I5 r:'Ii.rlzc'd by the zwsesf uzvnf' Esther is the half of the "Divine Duet" that keeps us well supplied with the latest Scotch jokes. If you should be passing along a corridor and chance to see a black and white hudclle and hear. in a jovial manner, "Have you heard the one about the Scotchman-P" you will know that "Es" will be found in the middle, telling the one that's "up to date and a day ahead." "Es" has had a good time wherever she has been and has often brightened a corner of the rlarl: locker room with her ever-ready Scotch humor. She is one of the individuals who succeeded in making her stay at "The Elms" both a social and an intellectual success. Her ability to stucly well and wisely, aided in attaining the latter while her good-nature and "Scotch" ancestry put the former within easy reach. Esther is an authority on the latest and best shows, and she just loves to inform people about the most interesting novels which have been recently published. It is beyond us how she finds time for everything. Esther is right up to the minute-both in class and out of class. In her we find an uncommonly strong character. She always knows exactly what she wants. and. needless to say, she usually gets it. The best is none too good for you, Esther. You will get it anyway, but it is a pleasure to wish it to you.

"Thanks for the symfvnllzics flint ye have spoken, Thanks fm' each kindly word, earl: silent tokczzf' There could be only one "Renee"-good-natured, generous, friendly. We always think of her as laughing and on the best of terms with all the world, for no matter how far she may sink for a time beneath the waters of discouragement, she always comes up smiling. Her optimism and good-humor are qualities which any of us would be proud to possess. But do not think that she is irresponsible. "I should say not!" Kas she would sayj. She is an earnest student and a diligent worker. She sets splendid examples of industry and perseverance which we would do well to follow. In all her classes, whenever occasion arises, "Renee" is forced to be a veritable Greek dictionary, and she always acquits herself creditably. "Renee" is refreshingly frank- there is nothing of nrtificiality or affeetation about her. She is always her own natural, pleasant self, a friend who would do anything in the world for you, and who would willingly give you anything she possessed, from chocolate bars to innumerable rides in her car which she handles like a female Oldfield. Knowing her ability, we predict that she will be a successful business woman, and we are sure that anyone so universally well-liked in college cannot help but be so in the years to come.

We soon discovered that beneath the sweetness of her personality and the mildness of her disposition, she possesses determination, fearlessness, and courage. Her frank- ness is a virtue. She can march through a debate or a discussion with flying colors, and she will vigorously uphold her principles and opinions as long as she believes them to be right. Invariably she climaxes her arguments with a vehement "Well, for goodness sakes!" just as stoutly and as truly will she uphold and defend a friend. "Marge" is the best of company. Her wit is of the keenest and her giggle is both contagious and continuous. Her pet subject is Latin and her ability in it is well known. Her sight translations usually leave the rest of us weak and gasping for breath. We would never be surprised to hear that she spoke Latin, and not the pig variety, either. Her ability as a financier is attested by the eihcient way in which she collects your class dues and makes you like it. Consequently, we suggest that she become a banker, but we feel confident that she will find success in whatever field she enters, and wish her the best of luck.

However dreary the skies may be, Katherine's optimism, framed in "wreathed smiles," never fails. Truly in keeping with her joyous disposition is her ability as a musician. XVhether the request be Beethoven or "something to dance to," "Kay" willingly and capably responds. Speaking of dancing, that is another of her gifts. A certain broad-shouldered young man, who has not yet suffered the calamity of missing an "Elms" prom. has become quite famous for the saying: " 'Kay' Donaldson, the best little dancer on the floor!" In dramatics, Katherine has been one of our stars. As "Mrs Malapropu in the Freshman play, she sent us into gales of laughter. And who will ever forget her as Saint Agnes in the play presented by the French Club? Blithe dispenser of happiness, may the melody of life never cease for you, and may the future bring you the fulhllment of your brightest dreams.

The very first to register on that fall day of 1928, which seems such a short time past, was an auburn-haired, blue-eyed little girl. She registered as "Catherine," but she has never been known by any other name than "Kitty," She came to us from Palmer High with an enviable record and proceeded at once to embellish it. Both scholastically and socially, she has attained and main- tained a foremost place. In calm, measured tones our "Kitty" has disposed of difficulties against scholasticism in a manner that would call forth approval from Saint Thomas himself. Her ability in English was recognized when, in Sophomore year, she was chosen president of the dramatic society and reelected to that ofhce the following year. Her work as chairman of the Sodality's social committee, and as member of the committee for the Junior prom, has given ample proof of her initiative and capabilities. "Kitty" is one of the chief reasons why these four years have been such happy ones. No truer or more loyal friend ever lived. VVith apologies to the poet, we "could sail the waters of all the world" and never find a friend to love like the friend we've found in her. She is blessed with infinite lightness of heart and spontaneous good humorg and the fates have given her a generous supply of that illusive, intangible quality termed personality. We know that you will bring glory to Alma Mater, "Kitty." Supreme success and true happiness is our farewell wish for you.

"Her ltzttyltlcl' teas like flu' .round the stars Had 'tvliwz llicy .mug f0f1vf11w'." linter the original Mary, the epitome of genial suavity. How can such qualities of wit, con- viviality, of scholarship, and beauty of mind, of facile pen and ready word, be bound up in one person? Exaggerated? No more so in my lines than in Mary. Her irresistible charm and alert- ness in seeing the funny side won her a high niche of lasting popularity. Mary's contributions ofa literary nature have raised a standard for the emulation of future "Elmites," for her wisdom is as sound as her wit is radiant. VVith a true appreciation of the classics, both ancient and modern, she finds the utmost pleasure in an inexhaustible fund of Mother Goose rhymes, mostly of her own composition. Upon the slightest provocation tand even without any provoca- tionj Mary would spontaneously wax poetic in weird flights of fancy from the sublime to the ridiculous. Her abnormal powers of conversation and repartee, reinforced by the courage which accompanies solid conviction, will command admiration far beyond college walls. A possessor nf ideals-she lives up to them: courage-she possesses itg knowledge-she has obtained it in abunrlanceg self-reliance-it was her native giftg character-nature and grace have moulded itg charm-she is blessed with it. If she hasn't the "open sesame" to success, there isn't any.

"Let 1lIUjil'Sfj', your firx! attcwzfimz .rumnmn Ah ra Ira! 7110 izzajfsly nf 'womarzf' Poised, dignified, regal, these and like adjectives run through your mind when first trying to describe Margaret. But although these impressions last, they are hopelessly inadequate express- sions of this lovable, natural girl of the "Titian" hair, and the Holyoke smile. Margaret is a most likable combination of natural, easy grace and abundant good nature. As young collegians, we quickly recognized the magnetic power of her character and her ability to lead. The honor of being Freshman class president in a charter class bears with it real duties. Margaret had no understanding "big sisters" from whom to seek advice in the many difficulties which arose from time to time. But she certainly established a record for executive ability during her year of office for the succeeding chief executive to follow. She had a happy faculty and facility for getting things done. In our first big social event, the junior Promenade, Margaret was an efhcient member of the general committee. And as Seniors, in our final big undertaking, the Year Book, we made our last demand of this loyal, dependable girl, and elected her business manager, confident that no business man could say "No" to the witchery of her smile and the bewitchery of her rhetoric. If the present depression does not end until Margaret gets into big business, it will end then.

It was a fine beginning and she is still going strong in dramatics. Like dramatics, her class work will ever bear the stamp uf ambition, courage, and earnestness. XYhen it comes to real study, "Chick" is intellectual endeavor personified. XVe have sometimes wondered where she ever managed In collect so much energy. After a day crammed with stiff classes she would enter the gym full of animation, and immediately proceed to turn handsprings and otherwise entertain us with her gymnastic wizardry. "Chick" is one of those rare creatures who decides to work and succeeds, and then decides to play and does that equally well. A good athlete, a diligent student, a f1'11t'Iilm' in friendship-what more could one ask? "Chick" is a born sales- woman and her finger is a magic wand, XVith the proper training it should reap a fortune for her. Four years of intimate good fellowship have passed all too quickly, and now we will soon be deprived uf her radiant smile and cheerful spirit. Yet we have one consoling thought, though miles apart, "Chick" will always he with us in spirit. Our College days are over, but we won't forget the elevator episodes, or the hat that has gone through college with you, "Chick."

"To ser' her is to like her, 70 know hm' is I0 Iowa herf Yes, that's our Mary-the veritable possessor of that mysterious power of ubiquitousness. How otherwise can you explain her ability to be everywhere, know everything, and do every task that is humanly possible or even probable for a director of so many and such varied organiza- tions in the school? "Assistant-Dean" we chide her with being and Assistant-Dean she could almost be called. Who else could so successfully be president of the Senior class, prefect of the Sodality, president of the Glee Club, Editor-in-chief of the Year Book, and still maintain an enviable scholastic record? And yet-we doubt if anyone has ever seen the faintest suggestion ofegoism in her makeup, or even the slightest approach to vanity. Therein lies the secret of her success, for here we have a girl who has unselfishly given of her time and talents from the very moment she entered the portals of O. L. E. It was to her that we all turned when notebooks were clue, when philosophical or religious questions became too ponderous. It was to her we turned when a musical entertainment was being planned. fCertainly you have heard Mary's bewitching soprano voice.D It was to her that we turned when the pangs of homesickness threatened. So it was to her that the Senior class and, in fact, the whole student body appealed when a capable leader was needed, and she has not been found wanting. Mary, we thank you for all you have done for us and only hope the world may cherish and as fondly appreciate you as we have.

"l'on.r fvussedes aussi l'm'l dv Tous tairtt' O11 .' vous mv: tous les talents do Nl111't'."' The title of 'Quietest Girl" in the charter class goes to our Holyoke friend. Our former president, now residing in a nearby city, and "Ceil," have something in common. When "Ceil" does decide to speak, a hush descends on the class, for everyone knows that her statements are certain to be clear, concise and sans mn' fame. "Still water runs deep" is "Ceil's" nature in a nutshell. That the press of social affairs was never permitted to interfere with the pursuit of her studies is the obvious and logical conclusion from the regularity of her appearance on the testimonial platform. All of "Ceil's" notebooks have the essence of perfection stamped on them. "Ceil" must be the secret joy of the faculty. Her themes are always handed in when due and never a day lateg her recitations, invariably coherent and comprehensiveg and "Ceil" wOuldn't even think of being late for Chapel or ot' cutting a Sodality meeting. However, 'ACeil's" scholas- tic achievements are not her only claims to fame, for she has firmly established herself as the "Jenny Lind" of "The Elms." Her charming voice has cheered us on many memorable occasions. Outside of "The Elms" proper, we know very little about "Ceil's" activities. Dame Rumor hath it that "Ceil" has had many desperate "affairs" following one another in rapid succession, each one more serious than the last. May the most serious have the happiest ending. Best of luck, "Ceil."

In the September of 1928, the gateway of the Berkshires unlatched to let slip out a smiling girl with golden hair. She made her way along a winding path and took residence in Chicopee. And Great Barringtoifs temporary loss was our gain. In four years Gertrude's sincerity, generosity and kindliness have endeared her to her classmates. And her flashing wit has brightened many dark moments. Always unselfish and eager to lend a helping hand, she is popular with all, and loved by those who know her intimately. Though no one could ever accuse her of being buried in books, she has established an enviable scholastic record. And her facility in translating Latin gems has saved many of us from embarrassing moments. Too, her athletic prowess is well known, and was generally recognized in her unanimous election to the presidency of the Athletic Association. Parting with Gertrude will be sorrowful and joyful both! Sorrowful at losing the constant companionship we have enjoyed for four years: joyful, because she goes out equipped with those splendid qualities that will spell success for her, pleasure to her host of friends, and honor to "The Elms."

One may attempt to analyse the psychic pi-otoplztsm of her beine. but the secret of her charm is as subtle and intangible as some of the oft-mentioned doctrines. "Mollie" is the unique combination of dreamer and pragmatist. lN'hen tirst we met her we thoueht her an unfathomable paradox, a perpetual pessimist. However, upon acquaintance. "Mollie" revealed Zl cheerful disposition and Z1 generous nature. A ready twinkle of the eye, a bit of unexpected wit-"Diamond gleams amid the dust," are as mirrors of a sunny soul, "Mollie" is :tn ardent advocate of the worth of a classical education. Sometimes in the heat tif expounding her doctrines, carried away by the fervor of deepest sincerity, "Mollie" yyould start off with worcls of learned length, really mounting the heights of oratory, suddenly come erasliiner down from the sublime to the ridiculous, ending all her noble exposition with a lieht. contagious giggle. The partnership of Shea and Murphy was strong when they were yeztrlings here, but it seems only to have been cemented by the passing years and the two principles blossomed into learned sophisticates. "Mollie" was a person with an objective, who rtltlfrlll permitted herself lo he distracted or diverted from the goal upon which she focused her energies, Goorl luck to you, "Mollie," with three cheers for interior decoration!

The above scene has taken place about three mornings a week for the past four years. but it would not be fair to omit the second act in this short drama of "Dorothy's Life at College." Another sigh, "Better late than never," follows her recitation. For Dorothy's general knowledge, her remarkable memory. and brilliant mind, never fail to make an interesting contribution to the lesson: and no class is complete without her familiar, "XVell, I read-" and there follows a statement which every ear strains to catch. XVe sometimes wonder if "Dot" stays home mornings to read the latest newspapers and magazines and is oblivious to the passage of time. But not for knowledge alone is Dorothy welcome. She possesses one of the sunniest natures on the campus, is generous to the extent of sacrificing half a noon hour to get a classmate an extra library book, and she is always ready for any proposed plan to help make our school life a happy one. VVe expect to hear great things of Dorothy in the future. She may arrive late, but she will arrive, as her unsuccessful rivals from Holy Cross and Boston College, in the last Hibernian essay contest, will sadly admit.

"A voinifwzazzrc in wlzirlz did mcvz' Ifazr rvf0ra's, f7l'0HllSl'5 as sweet." For us who have associated with Alice for the past four years descriptions are vain. Words have such ordinary sounds. You need to have known her intimately, to have played and worked with her, to appreciate fully her friendliness and charm. But try to convince her that what we think is true! Modesty and humility are two of her most pronounced virtues. She is the envy of many, as she is one of the class beauties. CNVhy, of course, there are several lj No one ever fails to notice her famous dimples, which are the nicest ever, and exclamations such as "She's a peach l" are The thing when talking about Alice. Her popularity is evidenced by the fact that she was elected to the unique honor of being chairman of the first junior promenade in the history of the college, and we are willing to wager that, in all the years to come, no class will have a more charming and attractive prom chairman than the one who with dignity Cand speedj led the grand march for the historic charter class of 1932. The words "Alice's blue gown" took on new meaning that evening. Alice Cat timesj wants to teach French, but we have strong suspicions that "Somebody from Somewhere', will prevent her from staying at that profession for very long. But, whatever she does, we shall be thinking of her often and wishing her success and happiness.

I : I 2 MARY CECILIA SHEA Homfokiz, MAss. "To those who know thee not, no words can f7Uil1f,' And those who know thee, know all words are faint." "Mickie's" charm is elusive. To be able to call "Mickie" a friend is a pleasure indeed, but to Count her as an intimate friend is nothing less than an infinite treasure. "Mickie" is a friend to all who know her, but she is a special friend to those in trouble. "Mickie" is truly termed "a friend in need." She listens to their tales with never a word of complaint. "Mickie" never worried about her studies, and why should she? The intricacies of philosophy, especially ethics, seemed to incite her to even greater zeal in her quest of knowledge. Remember the Moham- medans? "Mickie's" favorite philosophical phrase is "Post hoc, ergo propter hoc, is a sophismf' In senior year "Mickie" added her sweet voice to the Glee Club. As yet we haven't found out why. Do I hear someone asking, "Can she sing?" Oh yes, "Mickie" is one of those musical girls. Sing? She couldn't carry a tune in a basket, but she will try anything once, and most things several times. To mention "Mickie" without "Mollie" would be to speak of bread without butter, and that would never do. This team constitutes one of the most firmly cemented friend- ships that can be found at "The Elms." Xhfe say, may it be like heaven, beautiful and eternal. Never in the course of history has there been a Mike without a Pat. How about it, "Mickie"?

SLPTERIBER 20-Miracle of miracles! I am a college studentl This afternoon, I registered in the Fresh- man class at the College of Our Lady of the Elms, and I am now entitled, ladies and gentlemen, to be qualified by that magnificent adjective-collegiate! Mines the charter class, too. Quite a distinction, I think. SEPTEMBER 21-My first day of classes, and we cer- tainly started in with a bang-ancient history, French, and English, and I still have "math" Cwhieh I loathej, Latin, and religion to look tor- ward to. XVe're beginning to get acquainted, too, and I think we're a rather jolly-looking group. I've answered the questions, "VVhere are you from?" and "W'hat is your name ?" so many times today SEPTEMBER 24-Monday! The week-end was spent in getting aeclimated and in becoming better ac- quainted. There are thirty-seven of us in the class -just large enough so you can get to know every- one, Most of us have our uniforms now, and do we look modest and retiring' in our hlack and white! Classes are progressing, although I still manage to find the right room at the wrong time. OCTOBER 3-The college was formally opened today with a pontifical mass celebrated hy Bishop O'Leary, who is president of our college. Our entire class received Holy Communion. Bishop O'Leary gave a most inspiring address in which he set forth the ideals of Catholic education for young women. XVe were all deeply impressed when he read a cahlegram from the Vatican bestowing the ,N .,...t.. we :i :::11p .,.,.., :f::s:::a:m':.tX'? s s wR, cttt, we ,,-,-, . ...,t,,ttc..,, .t,t, t W t.tt.t.,..t.,ttt.tttt, t t.t,...tt...t..t...K..t.t..tttt,tt,.t.t,ttttt..

Today, too, we wore our college caps for the first time, and stiff necks were the price we paid for the added dignity they gave us. OCTOBER 9-Today we elected class officers, and we were proud to entrust the destinies of the first Freshman class to the following: Margaret Geran, presidentg Mary Greaney, vice-presidentg Helen Benard, secretary, and Olive O'Brien, treasurer. IUCTOHI-IR 30-This afternoon we made our social debut. There being no upper classes to receive us, we, with the aid of the faculty, received ourselves. An entertaining program was presented by a num- ber of the students fwe are beginning to discover a great deal of talentj and a delicious lunch was served. NOVEMBER 13-Today we formed a Dramatic Club, so don't be surprised if some day you read that the most famous actress of the day made her hrst sensation at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. NOVEMBER 14-Today, the ground was broken for the new administration building which is to contain offices, classrooms, a library, gymnasium, labora- tories, and an auditorium. Bishop O'Leary turned the first sod and asked a blessing on all those associated with the work, and all present and future students of the college. Benediction followed pictures of the procession The charter Class in the our "tests" are successful. in the chapel. Moving were taken. Imagine! movies! Here's hoping NOX'EAIBER 19-We are resolved to be true French students and conversationalists and so today a French club was organized. Parlcs-'vous frangazs? NOVEBIBER 26-Were in the throes of our first mid- semester exams. Some of them have been hard and others not so bad, but we still have hopes. NOX'ERIBER 28-Leaving this noon for Thanksgiving week-end, and are we thankful! DECERIBER 6-VVe had hopes of having a Christmas dance, but we have to wait until there are more of us so we can make it a real nice affair and so set a high standard for the college. I can see that this charter class business isn't going to be all fun. DECERIBER 7-Until today, no religion classes have been held. This morning was the Hrst, at which Father Lane, who is to be our instructor, spoke to us about the Immaculate Conception. We were glad to welcome Father Lane and We know we are going to like him immensely. DECEINIBER 21-Going home today for Christmas vaca- tion, and here's wishing you a Merry Christmas, Everybody ! JANUARY 7-Back to work and lots of it. Mid-years are appearing on the horizon. JANUARY 15-Father George Shea told us of his trip to the Holy Land, this afternoon. W'e all enjoyed his talk a great deal. JANUARY 26-Mid-years are all over, and strange as it may seem, we're all still alive. They weren't too terrible but bad enough. FEBRUARY 2-This morning, our first spiritual retreat ended. It lasted four days, and was conducted by Rev. Thomas Quinn, SJ., of Boston College. It was an inspiring and edifying experience, and we resolved that it shall bear forth good fruit for rest of our lives. In addition, we made the quaintance of little Isaac. are the ac- FEBRUARY 8-Marks! Witli fear and trembling received our first reports. There were several surprises but mostly pleasant ones. The charter class is setting a fine standard of scholarship, if we do say so ourselves. NV C FEBRUARY .14-Today Father Keenan gave a most interesting lecture on Lourdes. I found it most en- tertaining and very instructive. INIARCH 19-Thanks to St. joseph, we had no classes today, but this afternoon a musical and dramatic program was presented at which Bishop O'Leary was the guest of honor. Three one-act plays, "The Prince of Principipolef' "A Puritan Courtship," and "The Old Stone Wall," were very well acted and occasioned much favorable comment. I only wish the clock went around during classes as fast as it did during the Puritan's courting! Much of the program was in keeping with St. Patrick's day. There was a very pretty Irish dance and a number of Irish songs were sung. A harp solo furnished one of the most pleasing numbers. MARCH 20-Yesterday's program was so well liked that we were asked to present it again today, and the second performance was as successful as the first. Our next offer will undoubtedly come from Broadway. INIARCH 22-The favorite topic now is the ball which the Alumnae of the Academy and Normal School are holding the college anticipating girls are planning to go, and all an awfully good time. There's April 4 at the Kimball. A number of HTC 110 conversation now that doesn't include those popular words "men" and "evening gown." Nxwuaytt IXIARCH 25-Mid-semester exams again! Don't ever judge college by what you see in the movies-it simply isn't so, and won't be until examinations go out of date. IXIARCH 26-This morning an athletic. association was formed. The charter class is certainly versatile. IXIARCH 27-Have time to scribble only a line. We'.re going home today for spring vacation-'nuff said. APRIL 8-All arrived last night in Easter finery and we're back at work again today. Everyone's talk- ing about the ball which was perfectly gorgeous. INIAY 21-Today a most impressive ceremony was held when the members of the classuwere received into the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin. Father Lane NWNNRC.

The ceremony closed with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. IIIAY 22-This morning a number of the students organized a glee club. There'll be "music in the air" from now on. IIIAY 29-VVe're in the midst of final exams and I only hope I can keep awake until they're over. The prospect of a long summer vacation looks mighty good to me. JUNE 4-The last day of our Freshman year. Now that I look back it really has been short, but at times it didn't seem that way. Good-bye, everybody, and good luck! CSOPHOMORE YEARJ 1929-1930 SEPTEMBER 19-Back to college again for my Soph- omore year! We registered this afternoon and we start work tomorrow morning bright and early. It seemed good to see everyone again. We've re- viewed the whole summer all in one afternoon and evening. The Freshmen that I've met seem to be up and coming. We lordly Sophomores had a grand time looking them over. By the way I've just realized that "Sophomore" means "wise fool." I wonder which characteristic will predominate this year! Of course, I know. SEPTEMBER 20-Classes began today. I guess I'll have plenty to do with English, French, Spanish, Latin, religion, and logic on my hands. There are just twenty-seven of us now. Some of our class have left. They were all dandy girls and I know we're going to miss them. SEPTEMBER 26-We had our hrst class meeting today and elected oliicers. Helen Benard is presidentg Mary Dalton, vice-presidentg Kitty Dunn, secre- taryg and Gert Morrison, treasurer. I hope we have an active and a prosperous year. SEPTEMBER 27-VVe expected to be in our new building this fall but it's not completed yet. We're anxious to have it finished-we just about count every brick that goes into it. OcToBER 1-We held a class meeting today to consider giving a reception to the Freshman. The committee in charge is Clare Devine, chairman, Irene Mikus, Mary Greaney and Kitty Dunn. VVe'll have to give them a royal welcome. OCTOBER 9-The Freshman party was held this after- noon and everyone had a royal time. The recrea- tion room was as pretty as could be, decorated with green and gold streamers and balloons. CThe girls that blew up the balloons ought to be presented with medalsj We played bridge and the tallies were green and gold, too. Each Sophomore brought a Freshman as her guest, and they certainly were classy with enormous green bows on their hair and their names and addresses printed on placards hung around their necks. There is no danger of their getting lost. After the bridge, a program of read- ings, dance numbers, and vocal solos was given. Then both classes sang their songs. humorous and otherwise. The party broke up after a most ap- petizing lunch. IQOVEMBER 27-Exams are over and we're bound for home. I'm afraid we Sophs took an unholy joy in watching the Frosh struggle through their first college exams. DECEMBER -l-XYe've resolved to conduct our class affairs strictly according to Hoyle, so today at class meeting a committee was appointed to draw up a constitution. Katherine Donaldson is chairman and the other members are Alice Schnetzer, Mary Greaney, Lucina Ellis, and Margaret Geran. We also elected "Dot,' O'Brien as class scribe, DECEBIBER 19-Tonight, the dramatic club presented "A Mystery Play in Honor of the Nativity of Our Lord" by Robert Hugh Benson. The glee club assisted. It was a splendid performance of a most inspiring play, and typified the Christmas spirit in a perfect manner. An unexpected addition to the program was a very realistic representation of the Deluge. To be explicit, there was a very heavy rain, the water pipes broke, and the hall outside the recreation room was flooded. It was a shame the audience couldn't have seen the angelic choirs fthe glee clubb standing on chairs which rested in six inches of water. At any rate, we all feel very "Christmasy" tonight and are ready and waiting for tomorrow-and vacation! JANUARY 20-Today exams began. I managed to sur- vive the first of them but I'm firmly convinced that college is one exam after another, and it doesn't take logic to prove it. W'e had a real treat this afternoon though. Dr. Paulding, a former Shakes- pearian actor, presented "Hamlet," and we were completely entranced by this performance. He is a whole company in himself and he makes each character actually live. I am sure my appreciation of Shakespeare was much increased this afternoon, and I hope that Dr. Paulding will speak to us many, many more times. He is no ordinary actor -he is an artist. FEBRUARY l-Gur retreat, which was given by Father Reed, SJ., ended this morning. It was a splendid retreat and one that I'm sure I shall always re- member. I must always try "to see, to do, and to love." FEBRUARY 25-No excitement! lVe are pursuing the even tenor of our way. IXIARCII 21-The first day of spring and I have a per- fectly grand attack of spring fever. It's a good excuse for being lazy. Today the class voted to accept the constitution as presented by the com- mittee. Aren't we businesslike? , .... I... A .T . .- . ,.... .

L. :APRIL 8-The Elms Ball is just around the corner, and are we glad! Everyone is undergoing the third degree-"What are you wearing?" and "XVho's your man?" APRIL 15-Tomorrow our vacation starts. I seem to be quite keen about vacations, but then, "All work and no play makes Jill a dull girl." :APRIL Z8-Spent most of the day discussing the ball. Oh my!! Now we settle down to work. JUNE Z-Today we were initiated into the mysteries of oral exams. VVe had one in philosophy, and what a day! If you want to forget everything you ever knew, just walk into a room where you're to take an oral. JUNE 4-Once more we turn the tassels of our caps to indicate the passing of another year. VVhen we come back next year we'll be Juniors! Imagine: rvla! Good-byes and best wishes were the order of the day as we parted for three long months. CJUNIOR YEARJ 1930-1931 SEPTEMBER 18-Juniors! I think that's the nicest word. It seems jolly and important and sort of frivolous. Wlell, here's hoping! SEPTEMBER 20-Classes have begun. The very first day we were introduced to oral expression twe have stage fright alreadyj and to Cosmology fdoesn't that sound wise and important?j. VVe're very much interested in meeting the Freshmen because they're our sister class. WVe'1l have to take good care of them. SEPTEMBER 26-Today we elected officers for our all- important Junior year. They are Mary Enright, president: Kitty Dunn, vice-president, Esther Barnes, secretaryg and Marge Dineen, treasurer. XVe wish them success and good luck. - OCTOBER -l-Tonight we gave a party for the Fresh- men in the house, and everyone had loads of fun. XYe played Krazy Bridge CI imagine the "Freshies" were overwhelmed by our dignityb and then we adjourned to the recreation room for dancing, with programs 'n' everything! After that we had the most delicious and attractive lunch you ever saw- or ate. It was a lovely evening, and no mistake. OL'TCJBER 29-This afternoon a reception was held for the whole Freshman class, and it was the jolliest of jolly afternoons. It was a Halloween costume party. The grand march was a real spectacle, and at the end of it "Peg" Clifford was declared to be the prize-winner for having the prettiest costume and Kathryn Brophy for having the funniest. The afternoon was spent in performing stunts and in dancing. CI must inquire whether or not the girls still prefer dancing with men rather than brooms.J A typical Hallowe'en lunch was served. The "Freshies" were well initiated and they proved to be the best of sports. Some of the reasons they gave for coming to college were enlightening to 533' the least. NOVEMBER 4-We had building by now but we are doomed to disappoint- ment for a while longer. Some day we'll be saying, "I remember when that was built," and I suppose undergraduate of that day will hoped to be using our new some young answer, "Oh yes, 11,5 Fifty years old, 1Sl1,t it?" DECEIXIBER 18-The Christmas play which the Dra- matic Club presented last year was repeated tonight and I really think that last year's splendid perform- ance was excelled. Our guests included Father Doyle, Father Lane, Father Shea, and several sisters of the Order of St. Joseph. Merry Christ- mas! XVe're off again tomorrow. JANUARY 19-More exams! I don't see why they can't think of something original. Exams wouldn't be so bad in themselves if marks weren't the natural consequence of them, and read aloud to the whole school, at that. JANUARY 31-Father Mattimore, S.J., was in charge of the retreat which ended this morning. It was a most inspiring and profitable experience for all of us. I'm sure that the sugar-coated pills of advice that Father Mattimore made us swallow were thoroughly digested. FEBRUARY 19-Today we accomplished the all-impor- tant work of electing our Junior Prom chairman. Imagine-our very own prom! We were glad to confer the honor upon Alice Schnetzer, and we know that in her hands the prom is assured of success. FEBRUARY Z0-The rest of the general prom committee was chosen today. Alice Schnetzer is in charge of the supper committee, Mary Enright will take care of the tickets and publicity, Clare Devine is chair- man of the music committee, Margaret Geran of the patron committee, and "Kitty" Dunn of the pro- gram committee. We're all hoping it will be a perfect prom which can never be excelled by any of the classes to come. This charter class has quite a responsibility, but what a nice responsibility! FEBRUARY 21-A Junior philosophical club, "The Metaphysical Society," has been formed under the direction of Father Shea. We are to discuss modern systems of philosophy. W0n't we be learned? IXIARCH 16-Everyone is discussing the class ring which is being decided upon, with Marie Gillis in charge of the committee. We want it to be the best one ever, of course. MARCH 17-We celebrated the wearing of the green today by having a free day. Part of the celebration consisted in outlining the encychcal on marriage. APRIL 1-Our Easter vacation begins today. We were almost afraid it was only an April Fool joke, but it isn't. Good-bye! See you at the ball.

The building is beautiful, espe- cially the entrance and auditorium, but to us one of the most attractive spots is the gym. VVe anti- cipate some great fun there. VVe managed to get lost half a dozen times today. I guess we'd better carry maps. NI.-XY 2-Prom plans are progressing and we're getting more excited every minute. We talk about nothing else, and it's almost as much fun anticipating it as it will be being there. MAX' 13-XVe're the proud possessors of our class rings. They're as pretty as can be and quite dis- tinctive, we think. We'll be fiashing them at the prom. NIAY 15-Prom tonight! Don't ask me to be sensible. INIAY 16-Last night was the great event, and it was absolutely perfect. I can't imagine having a better time. The music, decorations, programs, everything was just exactly right, and the auditorium made a magnificent setting. We danced until two O'clock and our only sorrow was that it all had to come to an end. VVords don't seem to mean much in telling about it but I know I'll never forget it. IYIAY 27-Tonight the oratorical contest Or the first public assembly in oral expression was held. There were twelve speakers a11d all did extremely well. Catherine Gannon, a Freshman, was awarded first prize, and Grace Flanagan, a Sophomore, second prize. JUNE 4-Tonight Le Cercle Francais presented "Fabiola" by Cardinal Wiseman. It was an interest- ing performance and the Cast showed great ability both in acting a11d in speaking French. JUNE 5-The closing exercises for the year were held this morning. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was given and Father Doyle addressed the students. At an assembly in the afternoon, marks were read, class honors were awarded, and prizes for assembly work were given. Our Junior year has ended. We leave today to return next year as college Seniors -actually! CSENIOR YEARJ 1931-1932 SEPTEMBER 17-This afternoon we registered as Seniors-we've attained that enviable position at last. And yet the years have been short, too. I'm sure I don't feel as old and dignified as the prover- bial Senior, but maybe I can manage to get by. SEPTEMBER 18-Spent the day renewing old friend- ships and making new acquaintances. I believe I attended a few classes also, but my Infellecfus agvns isn't functioning yet. OCTOBER 1-At the first class meeting we elected the following olificers: Mary Greaney, presidentg Gert Morrison, vice-president, Cecilia Larose, secre- tary, and Marge Dineen, treasurer. We know 'I that the important affairs of Senior year are in capable hands. OCTOBER 21-Today we elected Margaret Geran busi- ness manager of our year book and Kate Curran assistant. Katherine Daly was appointed art editor and Gert Morrison assistant. Committees to take charge of the class photographs, and the selection of the Class song and of a class flower were also appointed. It was voted that the class colors should be blue and white. OCTOBER 23-Our gym classes have begun and we Seniors are pretty spry for old ladies. Oungreen suits are very trim and we feel quite athletic. It's loads of fun. OCTOBER 31-VVe were honored this year to have as our retreat master Father Williams, S.-J. It was a solemn period in our lives and we have all resolved to "keep the gate." NOVEMBER 17-Wie have organized a Senior Philo- sophical Club. Our wisdom gets more and more overpowering. NOX'EAlBER 19-Tonight was Elms Night, the recep- tion to the Freshmen. Supper was served in the refectory which was most attractively decorated in green and gold. Then we adjourned to the gym where we were given amusing dance programs. For the entire evening we danced to our heart's con- tent and enjoyed every minute. It was a jolly eve- ning and I hope that just as enjoyable an Elms Night will be held each year. The "Freshies" are a real acquisition. Here's three cheers to them! NOVEMBER 22-Today was Cap and Gown Day, when we Seniors assumed the robes of dignity and at- tained the peak of glory. VVe were certainly a solemn group as we marched from the gymnasium to the chapel for Benediction and an address by Father Doyle. One late arrival detracted slightly from the dignity of the Occasion. XVe then marched back to the gym where we were the guests of the Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen. NVe were served a delicious lunch Cwhich we did full justice toj and then we were forced to undergo the humiliation of rolling peanuts the length of the gym with matches. It was worth seeing-especially when the matches lit. Several prize dances were followed by general dancing. It was all in all a great day, and we have now made our formal debut as Seniors. NOVEMBER 24-Today it was announced that Mary Greaney is to be editor-in-chief of the year book and Marge Dineen assistant editor. The associate editors are "Kitty" Dunn, Helen Benard, Mary Enright, and "Peg" Clifford. XVe're anxious to have an awfully nice book. DECERIBER S-Tonight all the undergraduates were the guests of the Alumnae of the Academy and Normal School at a get-acquainted party. NYe played bridge for a time.

It was as enjoyable an evening as could be. DECEBIBER 17-I had a marvelous time tonight at the Christmas party which was given by the sodality. The glee club and orchestra gave a concert of Christmas carols and then Santa Claus himself presented everyone of us with a gift. The Christ- mas tree was beautiful and no prettier place could be found for it than in front of the fireplace in the entrance hall. A lunch was served in the refec- tory which was brilliant with Christmas decora- tions. It was the nicest party possible, and put us in the right spirit to start our Christmas vacation tomorrow. Hurrah! JANUARY 15-Exams are almost here but who's worrying with Junior prom the same week? I think we should have proms oftener-and exams, less often! JANUARY 22-Right in the midst of exams! If I'm still alive Friday night, I'm going to the prom. Illl prob- ably be alive but hardly in my right mind. The exams are terrible, the oral included. JANUARY 27-It's all over but the shouting. Last night was prom, and what a prom! Superlatives are needed to describe it for the Juniors assuredly did themselves proud and made it possible for all of us to have a glorious time. Every minute was perfect- the reality exceeded even the anticipation. I only wish I were going again tonight! JANUARY 30-Our Senior prom committee was elected at class meeting today. Senior prom-"Ain't it a grand and glorious feeling?" "Kitty" Dunn was elected general chairman, and the chairmen of the sub-committees are Helen Benard, publicity and tickets: Marge Dineen, supperg "Peg" Clifford, decorationsg Mary Dalton, patrons, Katherine Donaldson, music, and Marie Gillis, programs. It ought to be a dandy prom and we surely are look- ing forward to it. AIARCH 4-This afternoon our favorite Dr. Paulding, presented Bulwer-Lytton's "Richelieu," It was en- joyed immensely by everyone, and equalled the splendid presentations of "Hamlet" and "The Rivals" which he gave the two previous years. I don't know anyone I'd rather listen to. IXIARCII 7-We'1'e having a great time with our pho- tographs. Some of our "studies, are most enlight- ening. As a whole they're very, very good, but the photographer had splendid material to work on! IXIARCH ZZ-The Elms Ball is again in the limelight. It gets bigger and better every year, and do I love it! Tomorrow spring vacation starts, and I'm ready to admit I need one. - APRIL 4-Today begins the last period of our college life. The next time we leave, it won't be for a vacation-it will be forever. I wonder what next year will really bring. APRIL 25-I haven't had much time lately to keep up my diary. Commencement plans are being made and everyone is about as busy as the proverbial bee. The days are going like chain lightning. How I'm going to do any studying is beyond my knowledge. IXIAY 23-Still in a "hubbub"! I'm trying to put thirty- six hours into every day. It's a wonderful feeling, though-imagine looking forward to prom and class play and commencement and everything all at once. And exams! O Good Heavens! I'll bet I'll forget to study for them. JUNE 1-My last exams! I never thought the day would come. We may have finished the exams, but believe me, the exams nearly finished us, too. Not even the oral in philosophy was omitted. I think we deserve Ph.D's. JUNE ll-I can't even keep track of the days any longer. It's one grand whirl. Senior prom was the best fun ever-simply grand-I can't describe it. I'll just say "absolutely perfect" and that's enough. It gave me an odd feeling, though. As that last waltz ended, I was happy and sad, and sorry and glad all at once. Why do the best things in life have to end? JUNE 12-With Baccalaureate Sunday, commence- ment day itself, the play, the oral expression com- petition, and our prom and everything else we're keeping plenty busy and enjoying every single minute. We're soon to be real college graduates- can you believe it? JUNE 15-It's all over. The charter class, the pioneers of the College of Our Lady of the Elms, have graduated. There will be many, many more classes, but there never again will be a charter class. Long live the class of 1932! I haven't yet come down to earth. I actually possess a sheepskin and an A.B. Degree. But best of all I possess many pleasant memories and a host of the best friends in the world. I know I shall never forget them. We've worked together and played together, and laughed and cried together. To each and every one of them I'll simply say, "Then may the future bring to QVOH, like homing ships across the blue, Each wish fulfilled, each dream come true." A.

The scene was the campus of Our Lady of the Elms College. Obedience was emphasized as the be-all and end-all within these walls. The reins of the class destiny were placed in the hands of Ruth VValsh, president, with lyfary Mahar as vice-president, Kathryn Brophy as secretary, and lVlary lXlcDonough as treasurer. As yearlings the class displayed continuously a keen interest in their work and abundant talent to accomplish it. VVith the successes of Freshmen won and recorded, they returned as lordly Sophomores to fulfill the great promise already shown. They chose as president, Dorothy Fleming, vice-president, Margaret Collins, secretary, Rosalie Carroll, treasurer, hilary lVlcDonough. They donned the robes and assiduously set about learning the famous prayer to "Barbara" things intellectual, the old vigor was still with them and they found their reputation of being an exceptionally industrious class. This reputation they every class from religion to memory lines. After a most successful year as sophomores, the class of thirty-three "The Elms" last September, imbued with new life and intent on taking a major part in all the college activities. The annual reception to the freshman class was a great success and will go down as a delightful affair. The officers under whose guidance ,33 rose to the heights they have attained, are Dorothy Fleming, president, Claire lVlcLaughlin, vice-president, Mary' Barrett, secretary, Mary McDonough, treasurer. In November, the class of thirty-three honored the Seniors on that memorable Cap and Gown Sunday. This was a dainty gesture on the part of the Juniors and there was about it that spirit of good fellowship which somehow always pervades their gather- ings. The Junior Prom, a brilliant affair, took place on the evening of January 29. Gertrude Hallein, chairman, engineered the plans for the dance and brought them to glorious fruition with the result that the affair was accorded the distinction of being udiiferentf' VVhat will the coveted senior year bring? In such a reverie, the class of thirty-two leaves them to follow on into senior year-to illustrate everything of loyalty, ability and womanhood that our Lady of the Elms typifies. Our best advice to ,33 is: Uffltfzouglz you ran never be like us, Be as like us as youlre able: to Inav of philosopher ln pursuit of reward in the maintained in came back to --' A: v 5 5 ,X - """"""' """""" """" ' ':'::'xx::'::"5'W 'ji ' ... ff l ! ww 'gg , , 3 F4 "o.515?'5-' 3 5 'W 'Y A NKxx.xxx.xxxxx,xxXxxxxxx.,XxKx.x..........,k......x.,.x..x,.x,..x.x....N....NxLx., .Y xxx. .A A... .,NX M ........,,,......,,.. ..., w-w""' NN .............. ,....xx......... .,.

The task has obviously proved pleasing to the scribe, for History has embellished the scroll with roses for love and friendship, and has mingled the charming ivy of pleasant memories with the laurel wreathes of victories well won. Let us unroll the parchment and review the scenes therein presented. The very Hrst that meets our eyes is one of eager expectation. It is the memorable day when we, then juniors, were joyously anticipating the meeting of our "little sistersf, Finally they arrived and though we expected and hoped great things from them, we were not disappointed. Possessed of self efficiency and high capabilities, they nevertheless were not too grown up to accept our proffered assistance and protection from designing "Sophs" and other menaces. The next scene depicted is the Hallowe'en party. By that time we were better ac- quainted with our sisters of 334 and had realized that to know them was to love them. On this festive day, they were given an opportunity to display the good sportsmanship, ability and originality which have characterized them on all occasions. At the close of the freshman year of '34, we End recorded in its history the greatest of its triumphs,-the winning of the coveted first prize in the college oratorical con- test. From among contestants of all the classes, Catherine Gannon was declared the winner, and for us the defeat was sweetened by the fact that it was to our sister class that the palm was yielded. The unrolling parchment now presents to our gaze, a merry group returning after an eventful vacation, to begin sophomore year. lVe see them taking an active interest in the Dramatic, French and Spanish clubs. Their names appear in the enrollment of the Glee Club, and one of their number, lhllargaret Berger, has the distinction ofibeing chosen Club pianist. On the gymnasium floor, too, we find ,34 upholding its tradition of skill and sportsmanship. So much has Historyls scroll revealed to us. The scribe has only half completed her task. There remain for the class of ,34 two more golden years in which to add new glory to its annals. VVe wish you every happiness, "little sisters," and though our ways must part, your place in our shrine of memories shall be ever cherished. ,.,, ...,......xiffxSX2""sQt1QQ?smMx :'::L::::::: all wa 'E' 1 uv lfawe, 2? ,xg 5' 41.3 gf:- .ex N Y ,..,..W..a......ssssss.. ...-. .

YVe have with us girls from Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, and of course llflassachusetts. This is no meagre list after four short years of existence. lVhen we were Freshmen we measured our fame by the number of counties represented, now it is done by states. In a few brief years it will be by nations. Four years have slipped away all too quickly, and now, looking at you, we realize that we must have been as young and foolish as you. Yet, you have one advantage over us--we had no "big sistersu to show us how and when and where-you have. We had to fight our battles alone in a cruel and heartless world. Late in Junior year, we wondered what you would be like. VVe pictured you with glasses on your nose but truly, to our great surprise, we found you young and very wise. Mayhap a little too much so for Freshmen, but that is a Fresh- man7s privilege, and far be it from us to deprive you of it. Doubtless, you' have not forgotten your First College Assembly when you were welcomed among us. You were told that you completed our college, and that you added the finishing touch-making "The Elmsn a full fledged and promising college. Many thanks, little Freshmen. You showed your good will and cooperation by your attendance at Sodality meetings and Glee Club practice. Your good sportsmanship has been evidenced on the gym floor and the long queue on testimonial day manifests your scholastic ability. Last but not least your terpsichorean art speaks for itself. Now we beg of you to forgive us if we have laughed at your mistakes and poked fun at your faults, for back of it all, we envy you your youth and the joy and happiness that is to come before you bid a final farewell to our Alma Mater. ummm Awww xlwllllnnll ............ . ......... nr 'A ,A .a N if' 63 ,tl-1:14. ,.,...... .... , -Y ffee fe fe :sep .... 1.-:f::ff:1:11111g:1.

Under the guidance of its Reverend Moderator this organization has made great strides in meeting the spiritual needs of the students. Once each month the members of the Sodality assemble to join in re- ligious exercises in honor of the Blessed Nlother. Four of these monthly meetings are called lVlajor Meetiiigs, and are conducted in the Chapel. The devotion is led by the Prefect of the Sodality, after which a sermon is delivered by the Reverend Director or by some invited guest. Active interest must be displayed by a candidate to the Sodality as a test of her sincerity. In May, the formal reception of the candidates takes place. This ceremony, in its beauty and simplicity, typical of the Sodality, is one of the outstanding religious exercises of the year. To future members in our Sodality, we extend these good wishes as the abiding sentiments of '32, VVe offer them a cordial welcome, and extend. the earnest hope that they will derive the happiness and comfort that always came to us through the meetings of the Sodality. VVe who are about to leave reluctantly say farewell. Whatever life may hold for us, whether it be the stigma of failure, or the laurel of success, the inspiration we have obtained through the Sodality shall abide with us and shall ever help us to find that invaluable gift in a world of turmoil-peace of heart. a.sw,,.,....w..,NNm 5 ' v .653 .ttt.,t.tttt. , ..,...,... tt.....t.

He urges the establishment of Catholic Action Societies in all our colleges. Yet, how few really understand what is meant by Catholic Actionl A short time ago at the Summer School in St. Louis a young lady asked Father Lord, "lsn't it bad enough to have that in Italy without bringing it over here?" Really it isn't as bad as that. And lest we make a similar mistake, let us pause to examine it a bit. Catholic Action is not something new. It has existed from the time of Christ, wherever there has been a conscious and intelligent effort to apply the principles and ideals of Christ to the problems of individual, family, and civic life. In a word, Catholic Action is living christianity. It is but the logical outcome of our Christian Faith. Of its nature our Faith tends to action. It is not simply a set of formulas or propositions unrelated to life. The Catholic Faith embraces a group of convictions, a body of divinely revealed truths that flow over into action, and color our every thought, word and deed. It influences the home life, the business life, the social life, and the civic life of a Catholic. Among the works of Catholic Action, social service occupies an important place. VVhat is social service? It is nothing more than a modern term for the cor- poral and spiritual works of mercy. It is a linking up of temporal relief with the far more important work of saving souls. It is a continuation of the work of Saint Vincent de Paul and Frederick Ozanam. Charity urges us to aid the poor, to rescue Catholic children from non-catholic control, to enter the courts and offer our services for the instruction of delin- quent children, to protest against immoral entertainments, to direct the laborer away from the specious promises of socialism, to lend support to all agencies for moral and social betterment. It is not merely the bodily welfare of the defective, the delinquent, and the poor that enlists our sympathy. It is the thought of his im- mortal soul. lVlany agencies have been established by philanthropic people for all these worthy works. And they have been eminently successful in bettering the physical welfare of the unfortunates among whom they work. VVe would do well to learn their efficient methods and make use of them. But the all-important and ,,v,xmW'M'l'N""mv..., A,,,,, ...W , .........,. N- X...we.ttcat.,t..W..,,,,.m.tctX,..,ttXWWmewmtatamtstwa NNct.cskmQc.tNX - 3 19545 ---, r aww-.cw-s.::..

Besides agencies for the relief of distress Catholic social action applies the prin- ciples of charity and justice to the condition of the working classes. lVIodern times have witnessed an undreamed-of growth of wealth in the hands of the few who control industry and commerce. This great increase in wealth has been attended by appalling poverty in the great industrial centers. VVith an industrial crisis of two years' duration and with 6,000,000 workers unemployed, the mass of workers are in a position scarcely better than slavery. And from all quarters of the globe comes the cry of depression because industrial leaders have divorced economics from ethics. The Church, while protecting private property and ownership, has protested vigorously against this condition of affairs. Pope Leo XIII first lifted his voice on behalf of the workingman, and each of his successors has reiterated his principles. They have afiirmed the right to private property, the right of workers to a living wage, and to organize to secure their just demands. They have out- lined the mutual obligations of employer and employe. They have looked to the adjustment of hours of labor so that the worker might have time to practice his religion, time for recreation, and the cultivation of his intellect in accordance with his talent and ability. The principles for the solution of the industrial problem have been given by the Sovereign Pontififs. Catholic Action requires that we study them, and use all our influence to secure their application. If, however, Catholic Action is to exert a powerful influence, able leaders are a requisite. YVhere is the Church going to find them? Naturally, she will look to the graduates of her Catholic Colleges for leadership in this field, for it has been their privilege to learn the doctrines of the Church, and to study their application to current problems. Catholic women, especially, have a splendid mission in the cultural and intel- lectual fields. It is through their activity that the apostolic doctrines will reach into the life of the nation and make it Catholic. The men and women who are shap- ing the cultural and intellectual life of the nation scarcely know or understand the Catholic Church. Usually they respect her. hfluch that she stands for excites their interest and admiration, but apparently her teaching on the great ques- tions of the day remains a mystery to many. Here is an opportunity for Catholic leaders of thought. Here particularly is a field they can cultivate. Really they have no choice in the matter. The Holy Father has issued an order, not merely an invitation. He puts the responsibility squarely upon their shoulders to become - ,wN wmsmxwwwmwmwmsN'mwXw 5' -B MN ..,,. 3 .gy ....,.. .. s .,....,., .. ... ,..,. t. W... ..,...,.,..,. ,..

They must enter the hreach. They must endeavor to speak the language the intellectual world understands, and be able and ready to state the Catholic atti- tude on questions of the day. YVe point with pride to the achievements of Catholic culture in the middle ages. The World still treasures as its greatest inheritance the art, architecture, and literature of that glorious epoch. VVe say with truth a Catholic civilization produced it. No one can deny the profound influence the Catholic spirit exerted in the "Ages of Faithf' It is for a resurgence of that spirit the Holy Father is call- ing when he sounds the rallying cry "CATHOLIC ACTION.H It is a plea to put into practice the principles we learn in religion, ethics, and sociology. It is a call for Catholic writers, philosophers, and scientists. It is an urgent invitation to make our- selves an important Christian influence in the community in which We live.

Philosoph N OUR Junior year, under the guidance of the philosophy professor was established the Metaphysical Club. The first officers were president, Mary Greaney, vice- president, lvfary Dalton, secretary, Dorothy O'Brien. The activities were ar- ranged hy a board of governors consisting of the president, Gertrude Morrison, and Mary Shea. VVords can hardly describe the many interesting and prohtable hours we have enjoyed puzzling over the theories of modern thinkers and near-thinkers, criticising them in the light of scholastic doctrine. Nothing reveals the defects of a system like reducing it to the form of a syllogism. Oftentimes you discover that as Lincoln once said of an opponent's argument: "If the premises had smallpox, the conclusion would not catch it." VVe discussed the pragmatic system of philosophy as expounded by VVilliam James, unearthed his errors, and studied the fatal effects of pragmatism in regard to religion and morality. VVe delved into the philosophical vagaries of George Santyanna, debated his doctrine on essences, criticised his materialism. YVe inquired into the philosophy of Bergson, explored his "Theory of Knowledge" and reviewed and refuted his pan- theistic tenets. The annual public assembly in philosophy was held on March 7, the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, patron of philosophy. Appropriately, the assembly took the form of a meeting of the Metaphysical Club. Students, faculty and guests were delighted with a varied program including a paper on "Saint Thomas, the Saint," a circle on the thesis "All Our Cognitive Faculties are Per Se Infallible," a discussion of the philosophy of John Dewey, and a paper on "Saint Thomas and Modern Thoughtf' YVith a tinge of regret, we saw our Senior year approach, for it meant that we had to relinquish our Metaphysical Club to the coming Juniors. However, we are happy to record that with Eleanor Lambert as president, Dorothy Adams as vice-presi- dent and Dorothy Fleming as secretary, they have followed in our footsteps most nobly, and are living up to the highest expectations of '32, Yes, as Seniors we had to relinquish our Metaphysical Club, but our interest in phil- osophy-ethics and sociology especially-found expression in the formation of the Catholic Action Club. YVe analyzed the fundamental notion of Catholic Action, we recognized its influence in individual and national life, we learned of its value in the field of social service, we studied its application of the principles of charity and justice to the working classes, we saw the necessity of Catholic college graduates exerting a Christian and Christianizing influence in the communities in which they live. A few months more, and the Catholic Action Club, too, becomes the inheritance of '33, XVith reluctance we leave it. Never, in truth, will we for a moment forget or desert the ideals and principles of Catholic Action. And one of our pleasantest memories will he the kindliness, unselfishness, wisdom and breadth of thought which our Reverend Director brought to our meetings. And ,32 takes this opportunity to say a sincere and heartfelt "thank you," for his inspiring direction.

It is no exaggeration to state that few students see the links which connect one field of knowledge with the entire body of acquired truth, that few students leave college with a philosophy-that is, with a reasoned and firm grasp on the ultimate principles of life, thought and being. And yet, if there is one thing necessary for our intellectual life, it is to unify knowledge by establishing its origin, interdependence, and interrelations. During the college years, numerous studies have been undertaken and little by little the physical universe has revealed its wonders. Chemistry has reduced material sub- stances to their ultimate constituents, and revealed the laws which determine their combinations. Biology has explained the special properties of living beings. From Physics 'we know that naturels laws govern the universe and its parts. Events in the drama of manls life on history's stage have been added to our intellectual store, and we know the deeds of great men in war and peace. The study of the various languages and literatures has enabled us not only to express our own thoughts to others in various tongues, but also to profit by the thoughts of other men, to delve deep, for our own advantage, into the intellectual treasures of ages gone. Religious science has taught us how to know, love and serve God. In the principles of morality we have the beacons of human action and behavior. In addition to mastering the sciences, another result has been attained. The mental efforts made in the different studies have contributed to the general growth of mind. Hence in summarizing the mental results of college years, we might say that the mind has been furnished with a bounteous store of facts and that it has grown in energy and power. Great and important as it is, the knowledge acquired in these sciences is incomplete. Certain things are neglected by them altogether and the knowledge of others needs a complement. There is a whole world which has been left out almost entirely. It is the inner world of the self, of our own mind with its constant changes, its successive states, its growth and development. VVhat is the power of acquiring knowledge with which the mind is endowed, and how is such a power exercised? VVhat is knowledge itself? And when judgments and conclusions are called true and false what makes them true? VVhat makes them false? VVhat is truth anyway? How is it acquired? How is it distinguished from error? In our studies, we exercised our memory, judgment, reasoning, reflection, etc. These are so many words which called for further explanation and which suggested additional problems. For instance, what are the functions of sense? lVlemory? Intellect? Fre- quently we relied on the testimony of others. How could we do otherwise for historical or geographical data? But this method must not lead to an exaggerated reverence for all that is in print. It was necessary to learn how to use our own reason, and to practice the difiicult art of criticism so as to distinguish historical truth from falsity, and thus no . ee'-"'f ...,..,.,, wk WW WX Veee "rail wwweirraffeffrgffrff A,-- atqegqfswstvmmxmatemfew..Neem:f::::ewsMw.x-.eNSM begs i3ikt:XlINQN,s..te,,. ,WN ,.t.

The study of criteriology opened up new vistas of inquiry about such notions as end, purpose, motive, cause, activity, habit. All had to be explained and differentiated from similar concepts. Even then we could not pause. Still remained the problems of our own constitution. VVe speak of body and mind. VVhat are they? And what are their relations? VVhat is the origin and destiny of the human soul? VVhat is the end of man? Even if our Christian Faith has given us the answers to these questions, what is the atti- tude of reason toward our belief? Even in the sciences that were mastered there remained many incomplete con- clusions. They were good as far as they went, but they did not go far enough. At the very outset, when we learned to read and write and when later we learned to express our thoughts correctly, clearly, and accurately, how many problems presented themselves?-the nature of thought, the possibility of expressing it by symbols, of un- derstanding others, and the relation of body and mind. Historical and social sciences led to such problems as conditions, motives, and the value of human activity. VVe judge the actions of others, approve them as right or con- demn them as wrong. VVhat are right and wrong? Sciences that dealt with the material world left many notions unexplained. The very word "matter" is an enigma, and "force" is scarcely easier to grasp. VVhen we were asked to denne activity, action, cause in general, and how action and causality are possible, we found the task not an easy one. Religion itself does not dispense with reason's support. To reason belongs the task of proving the existence of God, and of explaining His attributes as far as possible for "the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmarnent showeth His handiwork." To sum up: The task of philosophy is to complete and unify knowledge by showing how all things we know are related, and by examining certain notions which have a wide range of application and cover numerous cases such as those of substance, cause, matter and mind. The aim of our course is not to train professional philosophers. Such training can come only in a graduate school. It does, however, give some idea of the history and of the continuity of human thought and, best of all, a definite synthesis from which we can evaluate the ever-increasing sum of human knowledge in the special fields of science, can coordinate it with what we already possess and can give to our intellectual life that "roundness" which alone brings intellectual peace and happiness. This rounded mental development is the goal of the Liberal Arts. ft' uuuu SSSS.

Katherine Donaldson had the distinction of being the first president, and the other officers were Marion St. James, vice-president, Mary Shea, secretary, and Marguerite O'Connell, treasurer. Many interesting meetings were held during the year. Various phases of the drama were discussed and several plays were presented or read and reviewed. Three one-act plays, "The Prince of Principipolef' "A Puritan Courtship" and "The Old Stone VVall,,' were presented on March 17, 1929 and repeated on llflarch 19. At this time, the dramatic club of the College of Qur Lady of the Elms made its formal debut, and it was a most impressive and successful one. Several members gave promise of becoming the Barrymores and Bernhardts of the future. The officers for the year 1929-1930 were: President, Catherine Dunn, vice-presi- dent, Marie Gillis, secretary, Mary Shea, and treasurer, Margaret Clifford. A number of new members were added from the ranks of the Freshman class. Several meetings were held at which one-act plays were read or presented, the outstanding dramas of the season were reviewed, stage problems were discussed, and papers on famous stage personages were read. At Christmas time, the "Mystery Play in Honor of Cur Lord's Nativityn by Monsignor Benson, was excellently presented with the assistance of the Glee Club. A very enjoyable meeting was the April Fool party at which clever and versatile actresses gave impromptu sketches which provoked more laughter than the most famous comedy ever presented. Catherine Dunn, president, Mary Shea, vice-president, Dorothy Adams, secretary, and Margaret Cusack, treasurer, comprised the officers for 1930-1931. The outstand- ing event of the club year was the presentation of the Christmas play a second time. It was an inspiring and realistic performance in which the religious element was pre- dominant, and an appreciative audience was much impressed. For the year 1931-1932 the following oHicers were elected: Catherine Dunn, pres- ident, Qranier Diamont, vice-president, llflary Shea, secretary, and Grace Flanagan, treasurer. An event which provoked much interest and enthusiasm was the one-act play tournament in which the four classes participated. The membership of the club was large and all were very active in the various dramatic events of the year. It is the general opinion that the dramatic club has been both an enjoyable and a profitable element in college life. Much of its success has been due to the untiring work and helpful encouragement of Sister Helen Joseph who has been our director for the past four years, and the club thanks her heartily for her help and inspiration.

At the usual monthly meetings, all the members join in singing characteristic French songs, and are given the opportunity to converse freely in French. Thus the study of the classroom is reduced to the concrete and made practical as tongue and ear are trained in living speech. The mere study means little, unless it leads to that fluent speaking knowledge which means the mastery of a foreign idiom. ,ln Junior year, Le Cercle sponsored the Hrst French debate: Resolu, que Racine est un poefe plus grand que Corneille. The aflirmative side was maintained by the Juniors, Esther Barnes, Katherine Donaldson and Dorothy Olllrieng the negative side by Claire lVlcLaughlin, Rosalie Carroll and Helen Begley, Sophomores. No judges were formally appointed. The decision rested with the audience. And consequently a veritable battle waged for days afterward between the classes, each claiming the victory. And in all fairness it may be said, both sides were deserving the honor-especially the Juniorsl The debate of Senior year was more Hery. The subject of discussion read: Resolu, que la jvoesle est un element plus l77IP07'2"fl7If dans la literature francalse que la prose. The Seniors and Sophomores, represented by Esther Devine and Edna Wood, ably and eloquently upheld the aflirmativeg and nobody present will ever forget the pyrotech- nical .lunior representatives, Eleanor Lambert and Rosalie Carroll. Again no judges were formally appointed, so the chairman asked Father Doyle to give quelques renmrques et son jugement personnel. VVillingly and eloquently he re- sponded, lrerzuroup de renmrques mais bien peu de jugement personnel. Both arguments were so well-prepared and so convincingly delivered that decision seemed impossible and unnecessary. Each class represented satisfied its conscience by giving the verdict to itself. However, the crowning achievement of the Cercle's activities was the presentation of 'KFabiola," a French dramatization of Cardinal VViseman's masterpiece. The audience present was delighted with the production-rendered most creditably not only from the standpoint of dramatic art, but also from the point of view of the most exacting critic of French accent and pronunciation. Thus Le Cercle Francais established by '32 has set a high standard which it sincerely hopes will be equalled but feels certain cannot be surpassed by its successors in admira- tion and love of the melodious speech of "La Deuce France." w.,,.....,,Nm N ........, s 1-'J K"s':igw. ..... seeeeaee:::::fz,432!2::::z..f 49'--A '15 3, xxmxxxxxxxxsxmwxxxxxxXvRXXXYxNXXxXRxxxxxxXxXwf crrtrtrrrrrrriirii' .ax 2: camxxxxxiiuiiallilrtur""'?m':"t'a'r-'iv ,X ' -'L "" : I' """ i'::::::ggrsxxxxw:::::::::.

So pondered the Athletic Association and so, accord- ingly it formulated its aim. Throughout the past three years the association has been the subject of varied metamorphic processes. Tennis tournaments have been fostered. Interest in skating has been stimulated. However, with the advent of IQ3I-32 there has been supplied that singular impetus so vital to success in athletics. Coincident with the opening of a truly awe-inspiring gymnasium the faculty was in- creased by the arrival of a teacher of physical culture. Long looked-for and much hoped for--the new arrival has certainly fulfilled our most extravagant expectations. She in- culcated into the organization a new spirit of enthusiasm and healthy rivalry. Conse- quently a meeting for election of officers was held with the result that Gertrude lVIorri- son was elected president, lyfarjorie hlchlanus, vice-president, Eleanor Lambert, sec- retary and Helen Hearn treasurer. VVith the advent of basketball, plans were formulated for an inter-class tournament. hlany perhaps questioned the possibility of obtaining ever reasonably smooth teamwork but their doubts have long since disappeared. The Freshmen chose Doris Clement as basketball captain, the Sophomores chose Clara hfloynihan, the -luniors, Dorothy Adams and the Seniors, Gertrude Morrison, with the result that the contest points ostensibly to a brilliant success. VVith the assistance of the money taken in at these games, the Athletic Association is looking forward to a merry banquet in June to crown the work of the basketball players as well as that of the tennis and baseball enthusiasts whose abilities we are to witness later in the Spring.

X,XxN Che Glee lub Pl'C.9I.dFl1f, MARY GREANEY Scrrrfary-Trra.v1u'v1', GEIlTRl'DE HALLEIN The Glee Club, organized in the spring of our Freshman Year, elected its first of- ficers April, 1929. Helen Shanahan was chosen president, Irene lVlikus, vice-president, Katherine Donaldson, secretary, and Esther Devine, treasurer. The initial effort of the Club was a short concert at the closing of school our Fresh- man Year, and with the strains of "The Blue Danube" of Strauss we departed for our first summer vacation. In the fall of the year the majority of the Charter class returned-now full fledged Sophomores. And, too, came the second Freshman class of the college. The Glee Club's first president was among those who failed to return to our midst, and at the first meet- ing Mary Greaney was chosen as her successor. The membership was swelled by the eager Freshmen who desired to follow our gilded voices up and down the flights of the scale. The principal activity of the year was the Christmas play in which the Glee Club supplied the musical choruses and solos. Again in the September of 1930 We increased our musical club by the addition of a third class-our beloved sister class, the present Sophomores. Mary Greaney was re- elected president with Gertrude I-lallein as secretary-treasurer. This year was marked by two outstanding musical activities. The Glee Club again assisted in the presentation of the Christmas drama, perfecting the carols and hymns of the dared to invite a critical audience and pleased their exacting efforts. The second appearance of the Glee Club was in June of our "prima donnasn alternated with the silver tongues of Public Speaking Contest in our new college auditorium. At the beginning of our Senior Year we, the Charter class, look with pride on the growth of our Glee Club, and the real interest so manifest in the newer members. VVe were fortunate to secure the guidance and leadership of Sister Lawrence Marie for the Club and now have a small but talented orchestra. The Glee Club and Orchestra combined gave a real Christmas concert in the rotunda gallery of our newest building on the 18th of December, and plans are being made for another concert in the near future. To the Sisters who so generously helped us and who so constantly gave of their time and effort in training us, to the girls who did special and solo Work, we extend our sincere appreciation, and Wish the Glee Club unbounded success in developing the talent of future generations at UThe Elmsf' previous year.

Special mention IDL1St be made of the committee in charge who furnished an exciting and interesting evening. VVith the Senior President, lVlary Greaney, as chair- man, the committee consisted of two members from each of the upper classes-they were: Margaret Cusack, lVlargaret Dineen, Mary Mahar, Mary lVlcDonough, Eleanor Peck and Beatrice Smith. Elms Night, now an established event in the College program, is usually the first real social function of the year. The Freshmen are honored guests, not jests, and con- sequently all initiations are absent. The united efforts of the upperclassmen enable the Freshmen to get acquainted with their new surroundings, customs and friends. Up to this time it is generally supposed that Freshmen are in a quandary, always gazing around wondering just what is going on and what it's all about. Uniforms and class books are relegated to the background in an effort to present a purely social affair, and convince the doubting Freshmen that the worst is over. . This year, the "Night', commenced with a buffet lunch served in the main dining room. This place was illuminated by the soft glow of candlelight. Once again, the com- mittee played the part and they succeeded in alleviating, if not obliterating the anguish of the first few months. In their excitement the Freshmen forgot their homesickness and smiles replaced their woebegone looks. After the repast, the four classes adjourned to the beautifully decorated gymnasium. Here, all were presented with quaint and clever dance programs. Green and gold were the prevailing colors. Each class was repre- sented on the programs by a quotation, the most fitting one being for the Sophomoresi 'KHalf done is well begunf, lVlystery and elimination dances were important features in the evening's entertainment. Keen competition was evidenced in the Prize VValtz. The Freshmen certainly led the upperclassmen a merry chase when it came to dancing. Elms Night will linger long as a pleasant memory.

It is the annual Christmas party, and faculty, students and guests have assembled to celebrate the ap- proach of the Saviourls nativity. At the conclusion of the musical program of the Glee Club, all descend to the main lobby, where a Christmas tree beautifully dec- orated and illumined, and laden with gifts, awaits us. Beside the tree, his jolly face Wreathed in smiles, stands good Saint Nicholas himself. He has a gift for every one, he tells us, and we Wait in merry expecta- tion as the gayly wrapped packages are distributed. Having received our gifts, we proceed to O'Leary Hall, Where the Christmas supper is served. Gathered about the festive board, we once again express in song the glad Christmas spirit that fills our hearts. For the true Spirit of Christmas is always guest of honor at our Christmas party. Amid the festivities of the season, with its merry- making and the giving and receiving of gifts, amid song and laughter We do not fail to comprehend the holy, deeper meaning of the Christ- mas story-the story of the Babe of Bethlehem, the lVlystery of Love coming into the world to transform it. And when finally, party over, we must separate, in every heart is the loving prayer of Tiny Tim: "Merry Christmas! And God bless us every one! 7 H - , -xr:---Q 5' i Q -:W ---wma-wer:-f ,.:maew.wa.N-.N-,--,Nemmaeattwgttttt,ttv..tWtt,mtt.,,t-tmwtmmt X rn '. N, :if ww. QA' ,vw-'X -Q, .A ,,.1,,f 7 why.- s'Xs4-PN?

Starting from the common opposition to scholastic psychology, the divergence of opinion among modern psychologists themselves has be- come so great as to give us five different schools. They differ, first as to the method of psychological research. lhfost of the leaders of modern psychology admit some degree of introspection, but the Behaviorists absolutely exclude the method of introspection. Psychologists differ further as to the object or field of psychology, one group hold- ing that it is the experiences of consciousness, another, instincts, a third, human actions, CIC. Scholastic psychology, on the other hand, admits both the method of introspection and that of experiment, and from its definition, the science of life, especially the rational life of man, it is evident that the field of scholastic psychology includes those of all the modern schools. I shall consider briefly the five schools of modern psychology, and then show how they link up with our system of scholastic philosophy. VVundt, called the father of modern experimental psychology, established a labora- tory at Leipsig, and had as the object of his experiments the processes which go on within us, considered merely as existences, hence the name Existentialism. YVundt held that psychology should merely examine the processes that go on in a person, such as thinking, seeing, feeling, etc., and try to find out the elements which go to make up these processes. He was not concerned with the faculties from which the actions come, but merely with the activities themselves. Thus, he studied the psychology of sight, the psychology of feeling, etc. Kulpe took up this work in Germany, Titchener in America. Directly opposed to the theories of the Existentialists are those of the Behaviorists under John B. VVatson. They deny that psychology has anything to do with con- sciousness, mind, will, etc., and rule out introspection as a means of conducting ex- periments. For them, psychology is the study of human actions. VVatson claims that when the Behaviorist has studied human actions for a sufficient length of time, he will be able to predict just how a man will act under given circumstances, and ultimately control human actions beforehand, so that he will be able to take a baby or even an adult of poor psychological development, and produce a completely efficient social being. VVatson defines personality as the sum-total of acquired habits, thus discarding entirely inherited instincts, though he clings to Darwinian evolution. Among other experimenters in the field of Behaviorism are Cattell who admitted the value of introspection, VVilliam lVlcDougall, VV. G. Pillsbury and Thorndyke who specialized in animal psychology. Gestalt psychology opposes Existentialism on the ground that the study of the ele- ments which go to make up a whole is not the object of psychology. Its advocates claim that since these elements are not directly experienced, they are not realities, and that the real object of psychology is wholes or Gestalts. These wholes possess certain qualities, sew 'P-' i pg H N :N X ..... . X i f., ..... ............... T 5 RG S PIN Q M' s gm, :gy ,ev ,,X,XQ, , N .- ' Nwstu .

' E a r 3 was X .tg called form qualities, not found in the elements ot which they are made up. For them, personality is not the sum-total of character traits, but an organized whole. Max VVertheimer, one of the leading exponents of Gestalt psychology, started by watching moving pictures. Each movie is a series of still pictures, yet we cannot analyze a picture into its component parts. He applied this theory to human acts, saying that when a task is begun, a tension is set up which is not released until the action is com- pleted. Psycho-analysis is more a method of medical practice than a school of psychology. Its of medicine. From tracing nervous diseases to theory that many of the diseases which attack in some mental shock, some repressed desire the unconscious until, years later, it reappears founder, Sigmund Freud, was a doctor mental causes, he gradually evolved the the human organism have their origin experienced in infancy and preserved in as an abnormal behavior. It is the object of the psycho-analyst to determine the cause of a given disease with a view to curing it, if possible. As psycho-analysis grew out of medical practice, so Hormic psychology, or purposi- vism, grew out of a desire to assist the work of sociology. Under VVilliam lVIcDougall, the Hormic psychologists take their starting point from the fact of purpose, and con- sider inherited instincts as the springs from which arise all human relationships, such as the family, society, war, religion, etc. VVithout these instincts, man's intellectual and motor activities would be passive, driven simply by chance stimuli. Psychologists, say lVIcDougall, are faced with the necessity of admitting purpose or of choosing a purely mechanistic psychology. From the above consideration, you can see how diversified is the field of modern psychology. Scholastic psychology, however, includes and harmonizes the teachings in these various fields in the division of Experimental psychology, and then in Rational psychology describes the principles from which these processes and reactions come. In Existentialism, the object is the processes which go on within us, scholastic psy- chology studies these processes and then reasons to the principles which elicit them. The Behaviorists consider material reactions, we consider not only material reactions but also reactions of the intellect and will which the Behaviorists deny exist. Psycho-analysis treats of the phenomena of mental diseases. VVe, holding the union of soul and body, trace some physical ills to mental causes, but hold that some diseases are material in cause. Gestalt psychology studies the process of knowledge-how we know. This we take up in Major Logic. ' Hormic psychology is concerned with instincts which are considered as the reasons which control all human actions. VVe, also, consider the instincts, but only as a part of experimental psychology, and as one of the elements which enter into human be- havior. Having considered these matters in Experimental psychology, in Rational psychology we treat of such matters as the nature of the soul, freedom of the will, etc. Modern psychology has made many valuable contributions, not only to the field of psychology, but also to those of medicine and sociology. It has stimulated thought and awakened interest in psychological research. It must, however, be admitted that no mod- ern school has as yet produced a system at once so diversified and so harmonious as that of Scholastic psychology. eff fijiiii :ii .s X A N 1 1 mm.

L. E.? .... Speak- ing of commencements, I attended the exercises at a neighboring University and was invited to a faculty tea afterwards. Imagine my astonishment in finding Mildred Clarke as one of the hostesses? No she is not a teacher herself, but a teacher's wife, and he is a professor of Biology! How did it ever happen? XVell all I managed to learn from "Mil" was that a worm crept across the laboratory table, she turned to Hee, there was the Professor . . . . and her name isn't Clarke anymore . . . . Have you heard that Esther Barnes is writing for a "Beauty Magazinen? I've just finished an article by her telling "How Country Air Makes Curly Hair" . . . . So I decided to take a day off and have a shop- ping orgy in town. First I would have my hair done in a new Beauty Shop in the S Building. It seems that they had just Finished installing a new elevator system. Rather than push through the crowd I had about decided to use the stairs when a familiar giggle struck my ears, it was followed by a still more familiar "Oh, I knew it would be mediocre !" and then a decided "Oh don't be silly!" I turned, and there, gazing in laughter mingled with consternation, at what appeared to be an elevator stalled between floors, were "Marge" Dineen, "Mickey" Shea, and "Chick" Gillis. To say we were all surprised is putting it mildly -in fact our chattering drew the attention of the crowd from the elevator which suddenly began ln run. "Hurrah," cried the irrepressible "Mickie,' "it's going!" It appears that the three of them had invented the elevator which was not supposed to stop be- tween Hoors. "Come 'Kitty' Dunn, you must try it," they chorused. I tried it and we actually reached the top floor. In the excitement I failed to notice the use of my maiden name, but as we shook hands at parting keen-eyed "Marge" spied the wedding ring, and as she had been married recently, too, further explanations were in order-even to the reason for my day's trip. When one's husband doesn't like your latest hat it's time to change your style of hair dressing-because the hat was darl- ing. So .... After congratulating the inventors on their suc- cess, I hurried to "Margarite's." And here is another surprise-for "Margarite" is no other than Margaret Cusack of our college days. She has a lovely shop, and if you want a perfect Finger-wave visit her Beauty Parlor. She gave me news of several of the girls, too. Clare Devine had just left. She has a position as private secretary. Mar- garet said she wore a stunning frock-direct from Paris. She always had a knack for knowing "the thing" in clothes. Speaking of Clare, one naturally thinks of Esther. She has a position as critic for all mid- western college humorous publications. They say that if she doesn't Find at least one new Scotch joke the magazine hasn't a chance .... "Peg" Clifford met "Kay" Daly Cspelled Dalee now! in Paris last month. "Peg" is head-buyer for a clothing concern in New York, and "Kay" is a leading Parisian designer. While they were talking in the privacy of the latter's office, who should walk in but Margaret Geran, followed by two younger girls. She is principal of a school of Business Advertising, and was giving the girls a practical demonstration of how to obtain ads even when the office force said, "The boss is busy." She has established two schools-one in England, and one in U. S. A.: and she attributes much of her success to "Molle" Murphy's book, "Alibis." which gives every possible alibi from those of busy lunchroom proprietors to those of girls who forget their uniform collars .... Thus "The Elms" in- fluence has spread from Chicopee to France. ' .. NNW-.-... M N ..... -- ga. ,.., a ...., , ---if3ff:1IQlf,u..a .. , ,.,,,.,,., .,.,,.,.., . .,,,.

Helen ran out of degrees to add after her name, so she's putting her title before it and changing the ending. It was a real O. Henry surprise. Katherine Donaldson wrote that "Kate" and she met in New York during the Easter holidays in the lobby of the Palace Theatre where Mary Dalton was playing in "Briar Rose." When "Kate" saw the title she said "Still," but Katherine assured her that the play had a much happier ending than the poem. They agreed that there could not have been a more charming "naughty Briar Rose," and "Kate" wanted to see it over again. But Mary told them it was her Hnal appearance in that role, and that she was taking a month's vacation. She also informed them that Mary Greaney was in the "Big City," too, doing social service work. They phoned her only to learn that she was sing- ing at a benefit concert for the evening. So all went over to the entertainment. They entered just as the last strains of "Kiss Me Again" echoed through the hall. "That must have been Mary," said Katherine. A sudden scream rent the auditorium, and a tiny white mouse ran across the stage. "That was Mary" they chorused. Ten minutes later, in response to a note sent to her, Mary appeared quite her calm self. The mouse was a trained pet to be used in the next act, but as they had seen enough of it already, "The Elms" delegation adjourned to a nearby restaurant. There an old gypsy fortune-teller begged to read their tea leaves. Katherine was the only one who had ordered that beverage and the gypsy told her to beware of Toms, Dicks and Harrys. As for "Kate," she has already started her sixth year of a twenty-five year plan of happiness offered by one of the best legal minds in the state. In fact, she's thinking of renewing her contract 'W' and taking a twenty-five year addition to the plan. Someone dashed by, stumbled, and almost fell! Sure enough it was "Dot"! She was in a hurry as usual to get to her school. Yes, she actually has established that institution she was always talking about, and such rules as she has! No set hoursg and, strange to say, she says they are all there ahead of her. And yet it is not so strange! She told us that "Gert" Morrison had been her physical instruction teacher for the first five years of the school's existence while she waited for a certain young man to get established in business. Wheii "Gert" resigned C"Dot" would not en- courage married teachersj the physical culture course was dropped from the music course put in, instead. Cecilia Larose was looking the time, and gladly signed a But she soon was begging "Dot" to let her break the contract for a certain "lecturer on the horrors of modern jazz" had persuaded Cecilia to join the matron's rank. Dorothy gave up elective courses in disgust and teaches the three "Rs" herself to her loyal follow- ing. curriculum and a for 11 position at two year contract. I had a letter from Alice last week. She likes California the best yet. How these wives of engineers do travel! This is a snapshot of her little boy. Isn't he a darling? She's trying to teach him his prayers but he says "him likth co1l'ge yells bettah!" The car just wouldn't move so we told the boys to go over and help the woman push it. As she turned around we recognized none other than our Renee smiling in the midst of trouble as usual. Did you ever stop to think Mary, that Renee is the only woman we know who never refers to "her operation." I guess everything came out al- right! All right! .... D 1' ,qi-in f, ,.,, ,,,, .....,.
