PRELUDE Hark now! The slender lingers pluelc the lyre And soft begins our song, no fire Of symphony is ours, no serenade, No wail of rhapsody, our song is made Of muted notes that echo in the heart As down the aisle of Yesterday We start, A simple melody, that lilts and sings, When lVIem'ry breathes a sigh upon the strings.

Through the medium of the classroom they have taught us lessons, aye, valuable lessons from books - Through their lives they have taught us the deeper lessons of culture, altruism, faith and loyalty, which have made us ready to meet the world. We realize that actions have more potent voices than words, and so we leave with a prayer on our lips that not one ofthe Class of l33 will ever fail to reflecqt credit, and even glory on those generous ones who have guided us to our goal. ,!?1 . ilkeb. igatriris jf.

It has been a gay procession and has trocl rough-shod over all obstacles. But there was one among us who sought to view this spec-tacle from the sidelines. You've guessed it-Mary Barrett is the young lady who loves to shun the limelight, but who coultln't hide her light under a bushel for long. One can picture her along the march giving a word of encouragement to her fellow marchers or causing a paroxysm of mirth by her Rogerish wit. Mary has held several important oftices and, by her administrative finesse, has excited the admiration and gratitude of her classmates. One thing, however, which has caused her friends lu become a bit impatient at times. though second thought excuses her for being natural-that is her leisurely gait. This trait or habit las you willl is the very antithesis of that found in her associates. They are as "live-wire-ish" as she is casual. Mary is the antidote for 1935 precipitattness. However, the thoroughness that is ever akin to the leisurely pace is hers also. The "call of the books" has no terrors for her, nor will the call of any avocation in the future. Mary possesses all the essentials of an evenly balanced character and disposition which will make any task appear easy. She will never be an alarmist, but is certain to be a success in her career as an apostle of quiet thoroughness. Class Secretary 3, 43 Treasurer.

A coMPLr-:TE description of Helen's character is not possible, for not one of us knows her thoroughly enough, That is no fault in her, nor any fault of ours. Almost every Senior has been impressed by some different quality, but we all agree the combination is one '33 is lucky to count as one of her own. Helen keeps us posted as to what is what in the radio world. and her information is often valuable as well as amusing. But not all Helen's time outside the classroom is spent cudclled by a radio. She reaps an enviable harvest from the hours she assigns to study. NVe might almost say: "un grand per rent fvonr 'z'0ns."l Helen's ready laughter makes her always welcome. She is generousg and her big-heartedness is not the kind which denotes a weak backbone.

Now, excluding shop-talk, Helen has delighted many an audience with stories of summer vacations at the Lake.

VVell, anyway, we hope for the future, that Helen will accomplish as much and as merrily as she has these four years.

The span of four years spent with this auburn-haired comrade is :ill too brief-yet sufficiently long to prove that she is worth her weight in gold. VVhoever turned to her in need and came away unsatisfied? XVhether you needed mercurochrome, or aid with a bit of French, or a neat patch for your uniform, Rosalie was there. And Rosalie is "wielder of the deftest needle ever known to a jagged tear". Good- hearted, just at little bit gullible, and gifted with that property that makes you glad to have her around, Rosalie has won our hearts. Vye admire her, we tease her. we laugh with her-and in our modern diction, we call her "cute"! We need not wish her success and happiness. these will be hers inevitably-we only wish that nothing in life may change her from the steady, lovable Rosalie whom we know.

Call her Margaret? Indeed! 'When once we saw that glint of blue through a mist of tears-we called her Peg, and Peg has been her praenomen ever since. That rare combination of good looks, personality, sunny disposition, and intellectual prowess, has prompted her classmates and friends to proclaim her the "Hallmark of quality". She has given of herself and of her time unstintingly. Many an "Elms" girl can vouch for her ready willingness and her unselfishness- aye, full many a one owes her crowning glory to Pegs clever mantruvres. This gay bit of femininity trips along "life's highway", 'mid laughter and tears and with the guilelessness of a three years' child. spreading happiness on her way. To have known Peg is to have added to your store of sunshine. To have had her friendship is to have had that stanch loyalty "of one who walks your path and thinks the thoughts you think", May the world prize her as '33 does, for to '33 she will be "Peg o' My Heart" to the end.

For thus has May made her impression on us-as a May that laughs at life, taking it with a grain of salt and sprinkling it with more than a grain of her imperturbable good humor. May is essentially modern-an easy composite of idealism and practicality, the latter manifested in a veneer of mundane indifference, the former in a penchant for poetry and music. She loves to browse among books, or to putter in the Chemistry Lab. fespecially when it means curtailing an experimentl, but when it's a question of Chemistry problems, or of "tooting" away on her clarinet, May plunges in with a vim and vigor well worthy of reward. May has made many a bright turning along: the highway of '33 and, with one voice. we join in wishing her luck and happiness.

Her ideal afternoon is one spent hiking thro' the woods with head tossed back, drinking in the wonders of Nature, and when the dusk of evening has gathered, her end of a perfect day is to eat supper by a cheerful campfire. She is an ardent devotee of sports, a fact which explains her partiality for sport models in clothes. The lure of distant lands fascinates her and she has travelled many a "royal road of romance" with Richard Halliburton. l-ler tastes are wide and varied, ranging from poetry to a hobby for fragile willow ware. She has a penchant for the dramatic and her histrionic ability is famed within our halls. A courage and perseverance that reflect the rugged strength of her native hills render hard work a matter of trivial import for jean. She enters into fun so wholeheartedly that the ring of her laughter is contagious. Though she is alert and keenly interested, at times a masque of indifference and sangfroid conceals a sensitive streak. As she is a voracious reader, 'tis whispered the career of a librarian might call her when college days are ended. To whatever undertaking she turns her attention, that self-same tenacity and persistence which have crowned her college work with success will lead her to victory's goal in the great world beyond our college walls.

We behold in Viola a composite of efficient seriousness and mirth-provoking nonsensicalness, who hs few peers in all the colleges of the land. Yiola's conduct is like a prism, ever changing, and yet ever enchanting. No class, no study period, no leisure hours, have ever managed to he wearisome with Viola present.

"lVif1z an eye made quid Ivy tin' fmucr Of 1IG7'llI0lIj' and flu' deep fwzuws of jay-" IT is the consensus of opinion that Grace is the typical example of an Elmite who can have "a wholesome outside interest" and keep a proper balance between heart and head. This "wholesome interest" has been the reason for her sallying forth XYorcesterwards "a-prom-ing" and "a-football-ing". For all of that, she would appear calm and unrutiied on Monday morning: with class recitation par excellence. Grace has remained untouched by the transitory phenomena of four years. She never gets excited over the messes into which humanity gets. She smiles at the fancies and foibles and calmly treads the "even tenor of her way". Not only has Grace held an impregnable position. scholastically speaking, but her status is high in the field of dramatics and oral expression. She has procured the laurels for '33 on more than one occasion. Her quiet, unostentatious efforts went a long way to make the Junior prom and the Sodality Bridge-Tea a success. XYe are confident that Father Time is hacking out a niche for Grace in the Hall of Pedagogues and there her name will be hallowed.

No matter what the question in debate. Gertrude soon declares herself. The noteworthy characters are those who firmly decide their position and lirztvely maintain it: and this girl has indeed the courage of her convictions! Years from now, our mental representation of Gert will be just as vivid and clear-cut as it is today. Gertrudes sparkling gift for enthusiasm is evidenced in her extra-curricular activities also. Some girls do not care for cards: others do, immensely. If a liking for them could possibly be made contagious, Gert would have twenty-four more very ardent bridge-players in our class. However, do not get the impression that Gertrudes home will ever be neglected for any all-day card party. There will he no need for delicatessen meals, as cooking-classes have absorbed quite a bit of Gert's time in Senior year. Practice makes perfect. :ind we all know that one's first biscuits may be a trifle heavy: and if one cake has no salt, the next one may have a double share! Whether playing tennis or rooting from a sideline, dancing tlte latest step, or playing the latest popular number, Gert throws herself into it with a wholeheartedness that exhilarzttes us all. May she ever keep this Peter Pan quality of vital eagerness! Should she develop normally, Peter Pan may well look to his laurels.

"Shorty" "In small lhroporiioizs, we just lJt'!'l1tfl-CS jfnd-" To think of her is to call to mind the words of an ancient Greek sage that: "Philosophers differ from other men in this-that if there were no laws they would still live as they do". Diminutive- and so we dubbed her Shorty-but none the less determined. she walks with an economy of motion that spells resolute purpose from head to toe. A deep thinker, once her mind is made up she is uuswcrving. Grave is the woof and gay is the warp that the shuttle of life weaves into her make-up. Eyes that reflect the implicit abiding faith of childhood are now deeply gray with wisdom, now roguishly a-twinkle with mischief. Humor lurks for her in the littlest things and a serious mien is quickly banished by the most contagious of chuckles. The silver shaft of her laughter has cleft the clouds of many a dull hour and her rare snatches of wistful song have shattered the monotony of many a tedious task. Scorning affectation, her tastes are marked by simplicity and a modesty beneath which she tucks away all accomplislunents except that piquant prettiness and gladsome personality which nothing can hide. XX'hen today drifts all too soon into the tomorrow that takes her from us, she will meet the world with philosophical calm and that captivating charm that won our hearts as she goes her own way.

Brilliant. talented, versatile, she is by nature modest and shy. .-X gifted conversationalist, her repartee sparkles with the fire of genuine Irish wit. She has a rare witchery with words and deftly, with delicate skill, does the shuttle of her imagination weave them into the sheer fabric of verse.

C.tx1eRoLI. T happened like this: XYe just couldn't decide how we would write up our Class History. Then someone suggested that we Write it in story form-sort of an autobiography, as it were. Hell! why not? VVe had all the requisites-we surely had enough characters and certainly plenty of incidents to make an interesting plot. And so we began. XYe decided upon a realistic title for our book: "The Class of '33". Considering the structure. we agreed that the book should be divided into four parts, one for each year of our college course. At this point, we sent out an SOS. for all available material in connection with our class activities, etc. Diaries, memoranda and scraphooks contributed their share of the desired information. VVe worked upon this project for some time and it was not long before we were rewarded with the finished product. IN ITIATIGN In the beginning of Part I, entitled "Initiation", we are plunged right into the story. .-X group of girls are making out registration cards. It is here that we form our first impression of these jolly young girls who are about to begin their college career. The next two chapters are given over to incidents relating to "getting acclimated and acquainted". In the third chapter the results of the Hrst class meeting are given. The officers elected were: Ruth XValsh, President: Mary Mahar, Vice-President: Kathryn Brophy, Secretary, and Mary McDonough, Treasurer. Then we have a little episode-a story in itself-in the form of the Freshman Party given to us, October 9, by our Sister Class. Here we made our social debut. VVe were told how welcome we were and assured that we had successfully passed the first test of initiation. The spirit of loyalty and joy that was predominant among us is evident in the words of our Freshman Class-Song, written by our class poet, Mary Mahar, and sung by us at the party: "Oli, tuc're thc Froslz af O.L.E. 'Cnn1prrm's-z'011s'? Just .starting in at O.I..E.

Now imagination is all right at times, but we certainly used a little too much of it this particular time. There was no end to the terrifying possibilities we associated with the thought of exams. Luckily the realities did not fulfill our expectations! The exams came and went and we still survived, although that was about all we could say for ourselves at the time. .-Xs soon as we returned from our first Thanksgiving vacation we began rehearsing for the Christmas play: "A Mystery Play in Honor of the Nativity of Our Lord", by Robert Hugh Benson. The play was a tremendous success and furnished us with just the right kind of Christmas spirit to take with us on our first Christmas vacation. Before we knew it, we were preparing for mid-year exams. XVe were especially industrious now. Why? Well, this is rather confidential, but the marks go home at mid-years. so we are told-not casting any reflections, of course. Miracles of miracles! NVhat a pleasant surprise was in store for us the second day of exams! Dr. Paulding was here in the afternoon and presented "Hamlet", Xkiords could not possibly express our appreciation. lt was just what we needed to inspire in us a new zeal to do the best possible. XVe started by challenging' the rest of those exams. VVe'd win, if we had anything to say about it-and we did win! The last week in January, we were initiated into our first spiritual retreat. It was a lovely retreat! Now, for the first time, we withdrew from our regular routine and devoted our time and attention to our spiritual welfare. During meditations, Father Reed, S.,l., imparted many cz4Sn 2.15212 " ' 7 l- "-1'i-T- Y .T-gx ,Xa EI6'3lA,, truths and principles which we afterwards applied to ourselves and so saw just how we stood on certain matters. And then the second semester began. About this time. we were initiated into the various clubs. Later on in the year. when the officers of the clubs were chosen, members of our class were elected to many positions of trust. Exams were here again! Exams-why do they have them anyway? ,lust to show us how little we know, it would seem. But we 'most forgot. XVC were to go home soon for Easter vacation. XYhat was better still, we we1'e looking forward to the Elms Ball. On May 15 we were received into the Sodality at a very solemn ceremony held in the Chapel, The next few pages don't contain very exciting information-just bare facts for the most partf XVe were no sooner hack from vacation than we began to think of leaving for the summer vacation. Nothing between us and rest but the finals! VVell! they were over and we were on our way home for our first summer vacation. Our "initiation" was Finished. APPLICATION In the fall we returned as Sophomores, fully determined to carry on the good work we had begun. Philosophy was the added feature in our curriculum. Ah! the plot thickens, as it were. It wasn't long before we were arguing in Hsyllogistic form". On September 25, we had our first class meeting. The officers elected were: Dorothy Fleming, Presidentg Margaret Collins, Vice-Presidentg Rosalie Carroll. Secretary, and Mary McDonough. Treasurer. On October 29, we displayed our initiative in the form of a party for the Freshmen. Everything turned out just as we had hoped and the party was a gala event. After mid-year's, we began our annual retreat with Father Mattimore, SJ., as our spiritual director. It was a very nice retreat and we all profited greatly by it. We were all delighted when we heard that Dr. Paulding was coming to present "The Rivals". The presentation was his usual success and was immensely enjoyed by all. NVhen we came back from our Easter vacation we moved into the "new building". XYe were all excited about it, and why shouldn't we be? It was just perfect and inspired in us a desire to accomplish great deeds for our Alma Mater. On May 27 we had our first Oratorical Contest in the Auditorium of the Administration Building. Members of our class who took part in the contest were Grace Flanagan, Mary Mahar. Hazel Ford, and jean Cullen. Grace Flanagan was awarded second prize. Then we began to prepare for our first "oral" in philosophy. It would be utterly impossible to describe how we felt as we went in to take the "oral", After we came out. we decided that it really wasn't so bad after all-no, not until the next time! The night before we left for home for the summer vacation, "Le Cercle Francais" presented "Fabiola", by Cardinal VVise-man. Members of our class were among those who took the leading roles. On June 4, the formal closing day of the College, the marks were read and testimonials were given to those excelling in scholarship. A list of those who took part in the monthly assemblies during the year was read. Every member of our class participated in at least one of these assemblies. And thus ends the first half of our Class History. APPRECIATION Turning over a few pages, we come to Part III, our Junior year. Our first tliought was- just one more year! and as an afterthought-yes, after this one! At our first class meeting. Dorothy Fleming was chosen Presidentg Claire McLaughlin, Vice-President: Mary Barrett. Secretary. and Mary McDonough, Treasurer. Our retreat came earlier this year. It was given to us by Father XYilliams, SJ. XVe were especially impressed by the lofty ideals and standards set forth during the meditations. On November 19, we had our first real social function of the year-"Elms Night". The Freshmen were our honored guests. It was decidedly one of the most pleasant memories of our four years. Dr. Paulding came to give his annual presentation. This time it was "Richelieu", by Bulwer-Lytton. It was a performance we shall never forget. The next most important event was the Christmas Party, an annual affair at the College. The first part of the program took place in the rotunda of the College building. A very lovely musical program was presented by the Glee Club and the College Orchestra. Following this, a banquet was held in O'Leary Hall. cc 47 xv ELMATA '?":.L r'.es'fL s .-Xt our next class meeting. we chose our junior Prom Committee. Gertrude Hallein was elected general chairman: Dorothy Fleming. ex-officio: Ruth Xkalsh. chairman of the Publicity and ticket committee: Mary Mahar, Program: Margaret Gallivan. Patrong Helen Begley, Music. and Grace Flanagan, Supper. At last. our very own junior Prom! Oh, yes. the weather was stormy, but we were too excited to think about that-in fact. when we combined Ernie Andrews' music. a good partner, and a generous display of crimson and silver. we forgot that we had ever even heard of weather! There were Proms before. and Proms after. but we'll always have the warmest spot in our hearts for our own Prom. During Commencement week. we entertained the Graduating Class at Claire McLaughlin's cottage at Babbs Beach. It was just the kind of a party we will always want to remember. A few days later. members uf our class took part in a concert which was given by the Glee Club and the College Orchestra over in the Casino. REALIZATION And now we turn to the part entitled "Realization", XYe were actually Seniors! Each day we realized that we were just one day nearer our goal-Graduation. We determined. however, to make our last year the best of all so that. in years to come. we might look back upon it as the rarest of all memories. At our first class meeting. we chose our officers for the all-important year. They were the very same as the year before: Dorothy Fleming. President: Claire McLaughlin. Vice-Presidentg Mary Barrett. Secretary. and Mary McDonough. Treasurer. Early in October. Father Stinson. SJ.. came to give the annual retreat. Realizing it was our last retreat together. as a class. we determined to make it the best possible. "Elms Xightu this year was the best yet. The success of the party was due to the splendid work of the various committees under the leadership of our class president, Dorothy Fleming. One of the unique features of our social activity was in the form of a Silver Bridge, given October 15 in the College Gymnasium. Mary McDonough. prefect of the Sodality. was general chairman of the party. In the latter part of November. we elected the ofhcers of the Social Action Forum. Eleanor Lambert was chosen President: Mary Barrett. Yice-President. and Viola Daudelin, Secretary. -lust before Christmas vacation. members of our class took part in a tryout for the year book, the Elmafa.

At a class meeting, held a few days later, Hazel Ford was chosen Business Manager. and Grace Flanagan and Ruth VValsh, assistants. On january 15. Cap and Gown Sunday. we became full-fledged Seniors. Now, for the first time, we wore our caps and gowns, symbolic of our approaching graduation. The entire College took part in the solemn and dignified procession. which started from the Gymnasium and assembled in the rotunda of the College Building to welcome His Excellency The Most Reverend Bishop O'Leary. President of our College. Our class was especially honored when given the privilege of leading the procession which preceded His Excellency as he went through the building blessing each room. .-X Pre-Lenten Social. in the form of a Mother-Daughter party, was held February 18. under the direction of lean Cullen. Chairman of the Social Committee of the Sodality. It was our first experience with this particular type of a party. The result was most pleasing, and we hope that we have established a precedent worthy of becoming an annual affair at the College.

Claire McLaughlin was chosen general chairmang Dorothy Fleming, ex-officio: Margaret Collins. chairman of the music committeeg Gertrude Hallein, refreshments, Grace Flanagan, patrons and publicity: Eleanor Lambert, tickets. and Rosalie Carroll, decorations. About this same time. we decided upon Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" for our Class play. The book ends with a description of the final procession out of the Auditorium at the close of Commencement exercises. It was a moment we shall never forget. As we heard the first chord of the Orchestra and turned to leave the stage, we realized that we had reached our goal- we were graduated! We were leaving the auditorium for the last time as members of the Class of 133. Our four years at College. with its many pleasant memories, passed before our minds. We thought especially of all those who had made this day possible for us-our parents, by their sacrifices: our Priests and Sisters. by their zuidanceg and our classmates, by their friendships. Our appreciation was manifested in the promise we made at this moment: No matter what the future held for us, we would always be true to our Alma Mater. 148: cg 1933 ,, ,X 1953 ,, Class Prophecy IQATHRYN E.

I was out to discover the murderer and. most important ot all. to make a name for myself. One May morning I left en route for the. gr-eat metropolis and fame.

As I was passing one of the theatres. I noticed a young tnan pacing up and down before it. He looked very familiar to me and when I had gone farther down the street. I realized who it was and turned to go back to talk to him. when suddenly I perceived a young woman come hurrying up to him with a big grin. and they were gone into the theatre before I could get to them. Of course it was Dot Fleming. and apparently she hadn't changed a bit since "college days". I stopped in Stamford for ltmch and then cou- tinued on my way.

Among the most distinguished guests was the Count Porforio, who, it is rumored. has been a suitor of Miss Barrett since her arrival here." Imagine it-our Mary to be a Countess . . . . That was thrilling. indeed . . . . Although I Wanted to go and congratulate my classmates. I knew that I tnust fix my attention on tny case. I went about making my various in- quiries and unwinding the threads of the murder. each new fact making the case more interesting. I stayed down there for a few days and then made preparations for my return trip. I decided to go back by a different route. in hopes that I might see a few more of my classtnates. Passing through Scarsdale. I could only gaze in wonder and admiration, I was ht-ld up at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Clive Street by a red light signal and. looking at the home on the right-a gorgeous mansion in white stucco-I noticed that it was a doctors residence. Then a tall and stately woman emerged from its portals. I noticed her gorgeous outfit and adtnired her appearance. ,lust as the light turned green. it dawned on me just who that woman was-yes. it was Claire McLaughlin .... I pulled over to the curb and. as she catne toward me. I called her . . . . It was marvelous seeing Claire again and hearing all about her. She invited me in and: when we were settled in one of her splendid reception rootns. she told me her story. Claire had marrietl a doctor and was very happy in her home in Scars- dale. Her twins were the darlingest little mites- just two years old-yes. of course their natnes were Rex and Regina .... She told me that she had received a letter from Helen Collins :t few days ago and that Helen was successfully managing a Philharmonic Club in Boston. Evidently Helens interests of college days hadn't changed. She also told me that Helen Begley was famed for her French lectures attd was a strong advocate of phonetics. It didn't seem so long ago that we had been in French class learning phonetics and l could easily recall Helen up at the board showing tts what was what in phonetics. Noticing a huge. leather-bound book on the table. I picked it up and read the title: "Fundamentals in l'hilosophy". The author was none other than Eileen Sullivan .... Eileen always did believe in getting to the bottotn of all those philosophical arguments in class, so this outburst did not seem strange to me. lYell. we sat gossiping for a while. tmtil I de- cided that I tnust continue my journey and. reluctantly. I left Claire to the grandeur of her home .... Then I continued on my way. To cheer me up a bit. I turned on the radio in my car. I was just in time to hear the announcer say: "And now we shall hear Miss Gertrude I-Iallein tell how to become an expert in Auction Bridge." But at that poim the static became too much for me. so I had to miss Gert's lecture. My next stop was in Danbury. I stayed with x49w .2l EI-MATA L some friends for that night, so we went to a show. The picture ended, the vaudeville acts began. The second act was one of adagio dancers-the couple were quite adept in the art, and we Fixed our attention on their antics. The girl looked very familiar to me, hut I did not recognize the man. show, we were standing outside the After the stage door when who should come along but the dancers of the evening, And the girl-sure enough was Alice Hallein. Imagine my surprise at seeing her in this little place .... Alice hadn't changed a bit since we were Seniors in College. The next morning I continued my journey through Torrington to Canaan and, being so near to Great Barrington, I decided to go up and visit with a few more of possibly locate them. my classmates. if I could Upon arriving at Mary Mahar's, I was greeted at the door by her mother. In answer to my query, she replied: "Mary? Vlfhy. Mary married a couple of years ago. She has an apartment in Hartford now, that is. she and her husband. Mary has become a famous poetess now and is always so busy that we very seldom see her." VVhat a disappointment for me. And this was the girl who said that she would never leave home once she arrived there. VVell, I thought, I'll go up to "I-Ious-a-what-sis" and see Dot Adams. I was halted right in the middle of Pancake Hill by a group of the darlingest little boys ranging from the ages of two to seven. As I quickly put on the brakes and stopped the car, one of them came over to me and said: 'fHello". I asked the little tot what his name was and he replied: 'fBob". Then a young voice called from across the street: "You children come right into this housef, Look- ing over, I saw a tall, slim woman struggling to pin her hair up-all to no avail. This sight seemed familiar-of course-it was Dot Adams and, to all appearances, she had succeeded in fulfilling her aspirations. XYe talked for a while and she told me that Marge Maloney was prominent now, hav- ing proved her skill at horsemanship with another "Colonel". It seems that she had a remarkable system Which accounted for her success. Someone from the sidelines would shout something that would cause her to blush profusely. The heat of the blush would cause the contesting horses to wither away by degrees and thus Marge would ride in to victory. After visiting with Dot awhile, I hurried toward Hartford and arrived, weary but happy, just at ten o'clock. The trial was to be in the Supreme Court the next morning, so I wanted a good night's rest and, too, I had to go over to the chemist's early and get those prints. It took quite a time the next morning at the chemist's before I could see the chief worker, but when I finally succeeded, you can imagine my amazement in beholding none other than Mae Coughlin. Mae always was a wonder in work- ing out those experiments in Chemistry Lab., and now people recognized her as another Priest- ley .... I arrived in court just in time. "Order in the Court." The judge was approaching. What? No. It couldn't be true. But I wasn't dreaming-sure enough, it was Shorty Hearn, looking so stern and cold. It would be hard for me to prove my case with Shorty looking on, but I did my best and went to my seat. The jury was apparently a hard- hearted collection, but I held my courage because I knew my case. Then the District Attorney took the floor-- Can you guess who it was? Exactly. It was Ruth VValsh. She gave her arguments with all the vehemence in her voice and actions that she could muster up. and then, having satisfied the court at large, she retreated to her seat. Now the jury Hled out of the courtroom and we were kept in suspense for the usual period. It was over-they were coming in now, and then I heard the verdict, "Not Guilty." I had won my case .... I was overwhelmed with joy when, later on, Judge Hearn congratulated me. We, the judge. the District Attorney and I, had a great confall that night in which I told them about the few classmates of ours whom I had met in my travels. Then. between the two of them, I learned that Margaret Gallivan was a social worker in Bostong that Gert NValsh had married Bart and had a farm up in Vermont, while Grace Flanagan was assistant nurse to a Doctor Conway in Spring- field. I also learned that Eleanor Lambert was considered the greatest orator in New England. She had recently been acclaimed for her ability and fittingly awarded for it by the President of our United States. Eleanor. even in college days, had held her audience spellbound in Oral Expression Classes when she delivered those patriotic speeches. So-you see. that class did count for something after all .... But the newsiest news of all was that Mary McDonough was now teaching in the Elms Col- lege as Sister Mary Matthew. That day happened to be her feast day, so I went to a florist shop to send some flowers. I did not notice the name of the shop, so you can well imagine my surprise when I beheld the woman coming toward me. It was Peg Collins. She and "jawn" were running Flower shops in Springfield and Hartford and they were living in Hartford at the present. Then I remem- bered-Peg had always loved Hartford, especially XVest Hartford, where their new home was built. Peg looked as darling as ever, and we talked for a while, but I wanted to get home again so I did not stay very long. It was Peg who told me that Hazel Ford was teaching in Chicopee High and that Viola had really gone to the Foreign Missions and was now laboring for the salvation of souls in North Borneo. "It's a small world after all," I murmured to my- self, as I stepped on the gas, anxious to get home and get rested. 415029 Ce Ef'3f9?l,, .N Elfillsfllo WiH we, the Senior Glass nf the Qiullzge of QBur 'ilahp of the Qlilms, being of normal mind, keen memory, and imaginative understanding, do labor over and hope to publish the following, as and for our last lVill and Testament, that is to say: IVE hereby revoke any rash statements heretofore made, and all our intercepted notes.

MARY I.YNN T1'msz11'v1'.' ICILEEN lnxizitix THREE years ago there knocked at our portals a class with a personality all its own. This class represents the fundamentals that most of us seek in a friend-quiet dependability, conservatism, and a depth of restfulness that serves as a refuge from the harried much-ado-about-nothingness of modernism. Such is the Junior Classl And yet, these Juniors have accomplished things while pursuing the even tenor of their way-one of them has twice captured first honors in the lflocution Contest-their basketball team is nothing less than formidable'-the pianist of the Glee Club and Orchestra is a Junior. And the Junior Proml The smallest class here-the first class to face the problem of a Prom in the Gym-and yet, on the morning after, the universal comment, Hthe nicest Prom ever!" From the bottom of our hearts we pay them ungrudging tribute for giving us that night of nights-for the undaunted way in which they met and surmounted their first truly big obstacle. It is not strange that the junior Class is small-for are not all valuable things rare and limited? It is nice to know, as we leave, that we can toss the torch to these Juniors, for we can be sure that they will catch it and, holding it high, will carry on. aS5n ,X EH? ,, SEISEA? ,, unior Direotory Bl.XRG.XlQE'l' BERGEIQ Beacon, N.

Enterprising, up and coming, and original are a few of their attributes, and to this we add loyalty, generosity and an unfailing willingness to help. YVhen you encounter something new, dirierent and unusual. itis pretty safe to say the Sophomores are behind it. Drama, debate, elocution, literature, the sciences, basketball, no matter what the field, the Sophomores are there one hundred per cent! If a project requires backing, the Sophomores are among the first-if there are endless tedious little tasks, you can count on the Sophomores to make light work of them. Ever since they took their place in our ancestral halls, they have made their presence felt-by making parties gayer, by swelling the numbers of the orchestra, by placing entries in the Elocution Contest and by being simply and naturally likeable. They romped their way through a colorful Freshman Year and came back in September, eager and resourceful as ever. VVe believe our Sister Class to be destined for great things and so it gives us genuine pleasure to Wish them the best of luck. ELMATA " 59 " 2JS te EH? f9?' Sophomore Directory lDORIS CLEMENT F.

Eleanor Lambert was chosen President, Dorothy Adams, Vice-President, and Dorothy Fleming, Secretary. Club activities consisted for the most part in circles on the various theses in Cosmology, Psychology and Natural Theology, and of papers on contemporary philosophers. Our banner day was the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, March 7th, which was the occasion of the Philosophy assembly. We listened with due respect to the learned disquisitions of the Seniors on Catholic Action, but we waited tensely for our turn. Finally our Reverend Vice-President selected the thesis on Miracles and gave the Juniors their chance. YVe were thrilled with the results, Dorothy Adams gently, but very firmly, defended the thesis against Eleanor Larnbert's vivacious and strenuous objections. iVhen she had "satisfactorily answered bliss Lambert's objectionsn, Dorothy met and calmly refuted the adroit attack of our Reverend Vice-President. Truly it was a memorable day for ,33. Swinging into the gay procession of our Senior Year, we formed our Catholic Action Club, wherein we found a source of delving deep into ethical and sociological principles. This year Eleanor Lambert was made President, Mary Barrett, Vice-President, and Viola Daudelin, Secretary. At the initial meeting, after the election of officers, our Reverend Director conducted a few psychological experiments to illustrate the principle which says that the functioning of a particular sense faculty is made more acute by simultaneously stimulating other sense faculties. Other meetings of the Catholic Action Club served to make us familiar with the contemporary Sociological and Ethical doctrines imparted in secular institutions, and to indicate the weaknesses and fallacies of these. VVe also learned the rudiments, value, application and necessity of Catholic Action in our own day. In the Annual Philosophy Assembly on March 7th, Eleanor Lambert gave a discourse on our deep-thinking patron, St. Thomas, Grace Flanagan explained at length the principles of the Psychological experiments which we encountered at our first meeting, and Helen Hearn tenaciously stormed Dorothy Adams' immutable defense of the thesis concerning the double effect. There is but a brief span of time left now before our final adieu to Philosophy and our Catholic Action Club. Standing on the threshold of leave-taking, we pause to express our high esteem of our Reverend Director and to acknowledge our indebtedness to him, who has taught his creed by living it, who has made profound things our daily bread with the simplicity of the truly great, who, with inestimable patience and tolerance, has led us along tangled highways to an appreciation of Catholic truth and living. There is genuine regret in '33's farewell to her worthy professor, her Reverend Director. cc 66 as ELMATA ' t Dramatic Club Presiu'e11f.' GRACE FLANAGAN I'iee-President: HAZEL FORD Serrefar-v: CLARA NTOYNAHAN Treamrer: AIARCIARET COLLINS 'TDHIS year has witnessed a steady ascent of the Thesbian heights on the part of the Dramatic Club, due ostensibly to the natural histrionic bent of the President, Miss Flanagan. She has done much to foster the activity of the society by portioning the work into separate units, as, "The Play Shoppe", which selects and reviews current plays, "The Little Theatre Club", which treats of the technique of theatre appointments and stage arrangement, and "The Actresses of the Little Theatre", who present a play each month. Eleanor Lambert was chairman of UThe Play Shoppe", Dorothy Fleming, chairman of "The Little Theatre Club", and Jean Cullen was chairman of K'The Actresses of the Little Theatre". In viewing the historical aspect of the theatre from the early Grecian period to the present, some outstanding phases have been concretized. This review was initiated by an interesting consideration of the origin of the drama, accompanied by types of :esthetic dancing. The production of "Everyman" served to illustrate the medieval drama. Glimpses of the modern theatre were given through reviews and by presenta- tion of one-act plays, such as were utilized in the inter-class play contest. It was left for the Seniors to bring to the fore the work of the master dramatist, Shakespeare, in their presentation of "The Taming of The Shrew". The leading roles of Petruchio, the tamer, and Katharine, the Shrew, were taken by Jean Cullen and Dorothy Adams, respectively. The rest of the cast follows: Bnjvfisfa CKatharine's fatherh .

TXTARY Mclboxoton The successful production of this play was made possible by the tireless efforts of that possessor of innumerable talents, our Reverend Vice-President. In this matter as in all others-vital in our student lives-he has been on hand to give active, capable aid and direction, although it has cost him the sacrifice of many hours from his ever busy days. The dramatic work of all the year has been steered into a steady and wise course by the knowing hand of our well-chosen Sister Director. ec 67 xr ELMATA Z ELMATA Glee Club and Orchestra Pl'CSIidC11f.'

One of the earliest entertainments was a joint recital of the Cvlee Club and Orchestra, given to obtain money for new music. So charmed were we by their program that we were grateful to the monetary need that prompted that performance. Cooperating with their gifted director, both Glee Club and Orchestra have settled more firmly in the lofty niche destined for them at the Elms and scarcely a social event has been complete without their contribution. Especially lovely was the Christmas concert from the balcony, where voice and instrument throbbed with the Christmas spirit. . Their number is limited, their quality rare, and their talent of that calibre which moved the poet to say: "lVlzen music sounds, gone is ilu' carflz I know, And all lzm' lowly things even lovelier grow, Her flofzufrs in vision flame, ller forest trees Lift !7ll7'fil'7lPfi branclzes, stillcd with ecstasiesf' Their first public performance, given early in lVlay before a large audience in Veritas Auditorium, proved an unqualified triumph.

Because athletics are not allowed to interfere with studies, basketball at the ulflmsn is hampered a hit by the impossibility of frequent practice which turns out Olympic stars. However, such difficulties are rendered trivial by the capability of our instructor and coach, whose fine sportsmanship, patience, and faculty for accomplishing much from limited material, in a limited time, have gained her the unanimous rating of an able, fair-minded leader and a genuine champion of clean sports. Spring and fall find the student body active on the tennis courts, and in the "great outdoorsv of a spacious campus.

Debating Club Prcsidmztf JEAN CVLLEN Ivfl'l'-P1't'5fdf'lIf,' H.XZEL Form Secretary: KAATHLEEN AIUNGIVEN THE endless controversies going to waste on the campus seemed to demand that something be done about it. Hence was born the child of flint and tinder, the Debating Club. 'lean Cullen was chosen President and has succeeded in making the brief career of the Club one that demands recognition. Meetings have been bi-monthly and have featured alternately the discussion of current events and formal debates. An interesting inter-class debate tournament was arranged in which the Sophomores, taking the negative of the question of establishing the Eve-day labor week, defeated the Freshmen, and the Seniors, supporting the negative of a six-year presidential term without re-election, were victorious over the Juniors. In the finals, the Sophomores and Seniors debated on the abolition of capital punishment. The commendable debut of this organization seems a fingerpost to wide vistas of accomplishment in years to come, and may be attributed largely to the understanding cooperation of our Sister Director, with whom it is a distinct pleasure to work. The closing debate was closely and brilliantly contested. The verdict of the faculty awarded victory to the Senior speakers, whose logic proved more potent than the sparkling oratory of the Sophomores. This inter-class competition aroused such interest that it has obviously come to stay. ln its introduction, ,gg modestly claims to he major part. 1:7019 6 Eli1'2?lA,, ELMATA fi Le Cercle Francais Prcsidvizt: ROSALIE CARROLL I'ifv-Prc.vi11'c11f.'

GRACE COLLINS .S'c'cretary: GRACE KALEY Treasurer: NTARY BARRETT STIRRED to enthusiasm by the resourcefulness and example of our Reverend Director and Chaplain, our Sodality, "the oflicial organ for Catholic Action", has steadily aggrandized and become a vital force in our school. Placing its destiny in the hands of the above-mentioned officers was a wise step, for they have given ample proof of their energy, efiiciency and ability to accomplish. Not only is the Sodality potent and active, but it is likewise a compact and well- organized society. In addition to the officers, there are four committees whose duty it is to superintend the Eucharistic, Mission, Literary and Social units of the Sodality. Eleanor Lambert, Alice Hanon, lVlary Mahar and -lean Cullen are the respective chairmen of these committees. The four ofiicers and these chairmen constitute the General Council of the Sodality which deliberates on matters of import, and in particular passes on the eligibility of candidates to be received at the Solemn Reception on May Day. A very complete plan of activity was outlined for the year, including four major meetings, preceded by small socials, a weekly meeting every Friday, alternately activity and spiritual meetings, a few special features, four major socials and the Solemn Reception in hlay. The bi-monthly spiritual meetings are conducted in Chapel by our Sister lyloderator and consist in reciting the Little Oflice, singing hymns, and receiving a brief practical instruction. The bi-monthly activity meetings are taken care of by the four committees who, in their turn, present at least three informative and interesting programs a year. The major meetings are occasions on which some visiting priest addresses us in chapel. The socials which precede these meetings have become, under jean Cullen's chairmanship, a source of genuine pleasure. To the Sodality we owe four of our nicest parties: The Silver Bridge, the Christmas Tree at the Christmas Party, the Mother-Daughter Tea, and the Easter Social. Unlimited credit is due the inspiration and vision of our Reverend Director, the steady guidance and zeal of our Sister lVloderator, and the competence and whole- hearted leadership of Mary lVlcDonough, our Prefectg for these combined forces have been vitally responsible for the multiple successes of the Sodality. In particular are we grateful to our Reverend Director for his sagacious leadership. VVisely he has given us on every occasion ample opportunity for using our initiative and executive ability, and yet he has ever been in readiness to lend us his assistance and better judgment in matters which required a more experienced mind than the students'. His policy has done much to develop the spirit of cooperative activity which has contributed to the steady rise of the Sodality. a14n .a EHR, J ay . 4' '- J Y r l I J SOM, QVQNTE ..- Q -,Mir fix. f Q 4 ,wa The Junior Prom Gmzvral C1IUll'lIllI1l.'

GERTREDE HALLEIN REMEMBERING our Junior Prom, counting on those chosen to engineer this one, and having learned from the Juniors, the passive potency of the gym, we are looking for- ward to the Senior Prom with high hopes. It will be our social adieu to the Elms and may it vibrate as a pleasant final note in our four-year symphonyl The Silver Bridge Rov1Nc9 that she merited her post as Prefect, hlary Mc- Donough inaugurated the Social season of the Sodality with this splendid party, which was so thoroughly enjoyahle. The gym was transformed with flowers and palms, and there the many guests whiled away a pleasant afternoon at hridge. After the play- ing, tea and pastries were served while the orchestra entertained with several selections. Qui' Reverend Director addressed a few gracious words to the guests and then announced the winner of the door-prize, which was a lovely silver sugar and creamer set. It was a mark of triumph for us to see a party conducted with the grace and dignity hecoming young collegians, and it was a distinct encouragement for many future plans. Elms, N ight N a Hallowe,en atmosphere of orange and black with an eerie skeleton dangling menacingly in our midst, the three upper classes tendered official welcome to the Freshmen. The party hegan in the refectory where candles Hickered dimly, and all valiantly devoured the grimacing orange sherhet cats that stalked in for dessert. Then we adjourned to the rakishly decked gym and made merry over a novel program of stunts, games and dancing. So high was the revelry that even Senior dignity was lost and not regained until the fatal witching hour sent us scarnpering to our heds. 117825 EUWMA ,X 1933 EUWUA 1 Ev.?l EUWMH Cc 1953 ,, The Christmas Party ENITE ADOREMUSN--dI'ifIiI1g down to us from the balcony above the rotunda, came the sweet strains of Christmas carols soaring clear on young voices, quivering high on violin strings. It was the annual Christmas concert of our musical clubs and the Sodality Christmas tree. Margaret Collins was chairman. It was a happy party, complete in every detail-we had a tree, lofty, lighted, and tinseled, gay-ribboned packages, a jolly Santa Claus in the person of Viola Daudelin who distributed gifts and slighted no one-and a dainty collation by candlelight. VVhat a jolly prelude to our holidaysl The Glee Club and Orchestra outdid themselves in furnishing a lovely musical program, which carried with it more than a hint of that first "midnight clear". lVe are indebted greatly to our musical clubs and our Sodality for another treasured memory. lVIotherfDaughter Tea NOTHER spray in the Sodality's crown of laurels was the lVIother- Daughter Tea held Saturday, February the 18th, under Jean Cullen's chairmanship. This delightful rendezvous did much to promote a splendid feeling among the mothers and friends of the girls, giving them an opportunity to meet on a ground of common interests. The party was held in the Assembly and the adjoining classroom, gaily decked in flowers and "Motlier" verses. Progressive bridge was played for a short time-then the guests adjourned to Veritas Auditorium for a brief entertainment, consisting of a one-act play: "Joint Owners in Spain", two songs, "lVIy Mom" and U 'M' is for the Millioii Things" by Rosalie Carroll, and a recitation: UThe Trimmin's of the Rosaryn by Margaret Collins. At the close of this the guests returned to the class- rooms where they were served with tea and dainty sandwiches and cakes. The party drifted to an end with a most desirable leisurely geniality. 14791: EUWMH ELMATA 1933 ,, Easter Bridge XUDING the spirit of warm spring days, the Easter Bridge, in a setting of dainty decorations procured through the ellorts of Our Reverend Director, marked a pretty conclusion to the Sodality Socials. To Hazel Ford goes the credit of skillfully managing this party. A novel idea was the using of attractively potted plants for centerpieces and tahle prizes. The flower motif was evidenced in the exquisite bouquet, which was the door-prize, in the gay little place cards and even in the tempting ices which were served with cakes. The party was pervaded with an air of quiet enjoyment, somehow suggestive of a pleasant after- noon in a lovely garden. The Annual Reception AY 17 marked the annual reception into the Sodality, when twenty-seven Freshmen and one Sophomore were added to the ranks of Mary's Socialists. The solemn procession, the devotional setting around our Nlary altar, the impressive sermon, the formal enrolment, all contrihuted to make this the crowning event of our Sodality year. cc 80 za ,e EEE? l x if 45112 X15 N - 'Q '1 .: n ,F-L ll AIX HIRIKSDSI an M NICCDJKIS 99 ,.NEHJV2A:lNA,,- f ,A ,4', C' ' . .

LASS Bookl XVhat a vista of retrospection, yes, and introspection, is opened up by these two words. And in the course of the multiple "spections" referred to, inevitably comes the query: Uriliy a Class Book? Vfhy, indeedl Everyone insists on having one-there would be wailing and gnashing of teeth if it were eliminated- and yet how many can answer, lVhy a Class Book? Propose the question, and heholdl --the questioned one flounders, stutters, and probably mutters, "YVhy-why every other place has onell'-or 'WVell-so that we can look thru' it and recall our good times, and, and everythingl H These are answers, we grant, but are they sufiicienti Consider the first-other places do have them, but why? VVhy did they have them in the beginning, and why do they continue to have them, and why are class hooks so popular? The second reason isnlt ample, for if it is simply a record of social events that we want, the ofiice has such accounts in black and white-as for example: uOctober 28, Annual Elms Nite Recep- tion, Supper in the Refectory, Dancing in the Cvym. Committees: ,lane Smith, Betty Brown, etcf' There is your record. Our student now roused, gives vent to her thoughts -"But who wants to remember things that way? How about the cute place cards, and the candles, and the sherbet cats and-in Ah, there you are-the Rosetta stone, the keynote to the uwhyn of the Class Book. College days speed by on winged feet, and are gone before we know it. Perhaps welve been too busy to notice their passing, too engrossed to regret, but the day is coming when we will yearn to look hack and recapture that "first fine careless rapture" of all that filled those days to brimming. For this yearning, no strait-laced record will do- no terse account sufhces-we crave something more personal, more intimate, more representative of ourselves as a class. XVe turn to something creative-creative, that is the essence of the Class Book from cover to cover. VVhat a galaxy of gay memories come drifting back as we read someone's own inimitable pen-sketch of the Christmas party or as we study another's caricature of the Glee Club-what bursting pride when we remember, our class did that, she was in our class, -we sponsored that affair. That is one justification for the Class Book, but it is not levity and fun-making alone that give the Class Book an adequate reason for its existence. A Class Book, if truly representative of the class as a unit, embodies in it certain mute testimony of rare bits of talent, striking ability, originality, executive power. ln an institution not yet boasting a periodical of any kind there is but limited opportunity for self-expression of a literary and artistic nature. True, there are frequent occasions for demonstrating powers of eloquence and dramatic skill-true also, however, that many become icy statues in Oral Expression. Their limited interpretative ability often makes comedy of tragedy or vice versa. And yet so often these very ones pour forth sensitive natures on paper, or strangely enough, can direct and organize, can arrange material, and can look the sternest merchant in the eye and persuade him that he just 41835: CXEHEAQA ,, ELMATA iI5.1l can't go on without a full-page ad in the Class Book.

TAYLOR THE existence of a true friendship between two individuals is proof of the efficacy of the Golden Rule. As social beings, we naturally gravitate toward our fellow men. This innate craving for companionship is satisfied only by a sympathetic reception. But the sympathy of a moment means very little if we have no assurance of its con- tinuance. However, one of the most valuable and essential qualities of friendship, is the confidence which it engenders in one another. Although our independence is often maintained by heated argument, the cold reality is that we are dependent, sometimes pitiably, sometimes comically, upon others. If wholly reliant upon our own resources, perhaps a characterization would not always contain foh thought to be abhorredlj the sweet-sounding phrase: "of sterling qualitiesn. If there were no friend to soothe ruffled plumage, we'd often be pretty sorry looking. And many a time gloom and old-man depression would claim us for their own, did not our friend put the sun back in the sky. A few kind words and a little attention, what wonders they can workl The graces and amenities, as exercised by a friend, are vital for self-respect and heart-ease. Aside from the invaluable help in our tremendously important affairs, the mere presence of a true friend keeps life gay and oh, so worth whilel cc 85 xx ELMATA Egg? ELMATA cg 1933 ,, The Answer HIMMERING waters mirrored a silver moon enmeshed in the folds of a dusky sky where a handful of stars flung far and wide, flickered but were never dimmed. The waves gently lapped the sands with a haunting refrain, deepening the brood- ing silence. The night had enshrouded the world that stretched before me in a magic spell and had hemmed me in. A patch of grey moved phantom-like across the black curtain of the horizon, paused while the subtle witchery of the moonbeams etched the blurred outlines of a sail, then disappeared beyond the brink of the enchanted spot. A murky shadow rose and fell with the ebbing tide. I watched fascinated until, with a final swish, a piece of driftwood lay stranded at my feet. Ghostly sails that pass into the night or battered pieces of drift- wood washed up on the beach-is that all there is? I asked. The incessant splashing of the waves answered nothing. That vast, expectant silence was shattered by a dull throbbing. Gut of the nowhere a mail-plane, eagle of the night, swiftly and surely blazed its trail through the blackness and in its unerring flight soared up to the moon. One second a silhouette, the next a flashing comet tracing its pathway across the heavens. "Then fflf I ffkz' soma' fwrzfffzrr of ffm skies". Back into the nowhere, and the spell was broken. The tireless waves whispered low their answer. There is more to life than our failures like flotsam washed up on the shore and more than the shadowy forms of our lost dreams that fade into nothingness. There is winged hope which hears us far above these-hope whose taper gleams always and, "ls flnrkw' grows ffm night Emir.: II briglzffr ray.', 4186 n 6 Eftllklgln ,ga EH? DR.

Four consecutive years have found us eagerly awaiting his coming, for, once having met him, we recognized his sterling worth. He is the essence of old school culture, the emhodif ment ofmanliness, and the maestro in his held of interpretative clramatics. Through his command of language, his expository skill, and his hisf trionic finesse, he has made us reac't to plays designed for large casts, and coma plicated settings.

Such a creed exaets too high a toll. Life has courage to give away, courage found in the rugged things of life-weather-beaten mountains, the giant forest oak, straight and tall, surging furious waters, tumbling over jagged rocks, the hiss of foam breaking against age-old granite cliffs. All these seem to act as strongholds against things transitory. The rising sun and the sun in its setting bring a fleeting exquisiteness, but it is soon gone leaving only a poignant longing.
