Prelude As well as words may convey a sentiment, let these, our phrases, record the story of the realization of a cherished ambition-work and play and the formation of lasting friendships in an ideal collegiate setting. We have found all three during the past four years, and the setting has been all that we could demand of it. Now we are anxious to review our activities with our readers, so that they may enjoy in some small degree what our Class of '55 has enjoyed to the fullest extent, and will always enjoy in retro- spect. lf, as we paint the picture of our college days, our strokes do not seem quite steady, it is because of the sadness with which we anticipate the day of our graduation, our ''commencement''-and yet the end. 1935 T'-is QMS Printing by CAMPUS FACULTY CLASSES CLUBS ACTIVITIES LITERARY HUMOR ADVERTISEMENTS BIIXLE-PLIMPTON COMPANY N4il"ll'Il.Il, XI.XSS'U'lIl'5l'I'I"I'N I' g IU uml I I H'url.' by SPRINUPILI ll PI-1010 EN!

"They call me Dodo," she told us, and, of course, everyone thought of that time-worn extinction, and perhaps expected that here was the very same. But it wasnt long before we dis- covered that ours was a very paradoxical "Dodo," Dead a couple of hundred years? Well, we are here to shout in chorus, No! Very much alive, especially when it came to pillow fights and tennis. Our "Dodo" also sings. Ah yes! But "Dodo" can also be very serious, and we know it far different personality when Doris. with flashing eye and vehement gesticulations, assures you that debating is a womanly as well as a manly accomplishment. She could argue Cicero to a frazzle fif he isn't that alreadyj, and make Demosthenes swallow his pebbles, and yet she would never yield a point-not even to save Demos- thenes from choking. There is also "Dodo" the student, and we, perfectly willing to believe any- thing, just marvel at her objections in Philosophy. But doubtful in this, she is gullible in other things, while we,-but then as the sages say, "Comparisons are odious." There is "Dodo" the punster. The fun is just begun whun "Dodo" runs upun a pun, for thun come muny, muny puns! 1'Pun our word, we didn't mean all that.J Again, there is "Dodo" the dreamer, "Building her beautiful castles of dreams all bright and fair"-and making some of them come true. May you reach the place of dreams someday, "Dodo." lf ever you want to hurry in your climb to the stars, try a Ere escape. You might come down more quickly than you went up, but then, there are the stairs as a last resort. Maybe someday, when you are old and gray, you may be allowe? 50 use an elevator.

These adjectives describe so well a personality vibrant in the Senior class. "Cath" isn't very big, but her lovely, gracious manner and her talent for drawing have made het quite necessary to our Senior happiness. Under her direction, our junior Prom became the most beautifully decorated of them all. Because of this, "Cath" has been further complimented by again being selected as chairman of decora- tions for our Senior Ball. The drawings in our year-book come from her pen. Throughout these past four years, that pen has been at her class's disposal, and has never failed us. "Cath" is a good listener. Comfort and patience await a friend in trouble. The fact that she delights in a friends success as she would in her own makes her a pal worth having. "Cath" knows everybody and everyone knows "Cath." Ar the concerts, at the Proms, it is always, "Hello, everybody," answered by "Hello, 'Cath', it is good to see you." May that be our blessed privilege many a time and oft in the days to Come!

She spins her web of ideals, and her gossamer threads of beauty, and produces in reality a concrete realization of her dreams. Unlike most dreamers, she never fails to crystallize her noble thoughts into actions. or to give expression to her visions of poetry. A keen wit, she shines as a conversationalistg she can talk to you about anything, books, science, history, yes, even "singing" "Dowdy's" freshman days saw her gain glory as a "soap-box" orator, and as a scaler of hre escapes par excellence. She has held many offices during her four years, but graced none as she did that of leader of the "jesse james" club, which specialized in French beds and reversed bureau drawers. Her abilities demand for their recounting a more capable pen than this one. lf we were to invent a new adjective, we could call her "straight-A" Dorothy, for she was an A scholar, a 1007 frolic maker, and a top-notch friend. The shades of time will naturally take away from us some of our precious college souvenirs, but we are confident that the years cannot obliterate this personality composed of "sugar and spice and everything nice."

We who have lived with Clare know how wide herlworld must be. It is a lovely place, and we, who have had the pleasure of sharing it for even a little while, know that her world is, and will ever be, a happy one. A person with a heart as warm and friendly as Clare's cannot fail to be well liked wherever she goes, and college days served only to add to her hosts of friends. It is hard to analyze Clare's personality. It is rather enigmatical. Hard-pressed for a thumb- nail description, one would look puzzled, and proffer, "Unsophisticated sophisticatef' Very para- doxical, indeed, Sophisticated she is, when dressed from head to toe in the latest fashion, she trips into a waiting roadster, and is whisked to points east, north and south, footballing, theatre-going or just plain week-ending.

But then, small packages are proverbial for the value of their contents, and our Lilliputian is no exception to the rule. Quiet of humor, calm of disposition, she has a perseverance in her studies that has occasioned many a less fortunate person to marvel at her will power to shut her eyes to all diversion and apply all her energies to her books. Books, however, can't make a schoolgirl's world, and they didn't make "judy's." She hearkened to the call of the books, but was responsive to other calls, too. She joined in the fun, and managed to wait for a lull, and then she would inject her own witticisms, which like the title of an Alger book, were slow but oh so sure in their results. A picture of "Judy" is hardly complete without a reference to "Shorty," As a Mutt and jeff, they excelled the originals. Their friendship began the day they looked at each other and little, petite, subdued, quiet "Gert" greeted tall, cool, assured Stella with the words "Well, if it isn't Shorty!" and Stella responded with "Hello Judy." Why "Judy"?

Four years ago, from the Berkshire Hills, there came to us a quiet, unassuming young lady who even now possesses these same qualities. Although quiet, "Ceil" became well known to all of us and well liked by all of us. From the first, it seemed we couldn't know her better nor like her more. Yet, each year, we did find ourselves knowing her better and liking her even more. Her ever-present cheerfulness, her many kindnesses and her generous consideration toward all, made her one of the most popular figures on the campus. "Ceil's" actions spoke for her-for she was always there ever ready and willing to lend a helping hand when a helping hand was needed. Not for gratitude did she render these kind services, but because by nature she is thoughtful and never forgets the feelings and sensibilities of others. We all appreciated "Ceil", although she may not have known it. We feel sure that these fine qualities she possesses will endear her as much to those with whom she iusociates in future years as they have to us-her classmates of '35.

She was active in all lines, being one of our best students, a most talented violinist, an eloquent speaker and an all-round sport. Although conscientiously studious, Mary, nevertheless, found time to enter whole-heartedly into our social life, where she displayed a keen interest and an easy graciousness. Mary believed in working hard and playing hard. She set us a splendid example, for she proved thorough in her assignments, ambitious in her plans and valuable in her suggestions. She was proficient in the fine arts as well as in the useful ones, and her marked personality, intellectual poise and power and keen sense of values spell a strong character that knows no such word as fail. Weigliing everything calmly and prudently, being ever sincere, straight-forward and eminently successful, Mary leaves a memorable impression on the students of O. L. E. Knowing that success treads on the heels of all who believe "that genius is a talent for hard work," we're confident that Mary will ever be successful and make us as proud of her in after years as we were in college days.

A whirl of a motor, a car glides up to the front door, a young girl iumps out, mounts the steps and lo! Mary makes her debut at the Elms. We were not long in discovering that Mary's ability was not confined alone to adroitness in handling her car. Whenever the reputation uf the Class of '35 as Historians began to quiver Mary invariably put new life into it with one of her perfect and definite statements. Yes, Mary's pet subject is History and she nobly acquits herself in that class whether it is a question of Ancient, Medieval, or Modern History. With long light hair and dreamy blue eyes Mary is quiet, modest, shy and retiring. She would be content to let the world rush by without knowing her true worth. But there is another side to Mary's character. Her firm chin denotes an earnest determination to stand by her convic- tions. With vigor she throws herself into the serious business of studying, displaying an energy seldom equalled. Always willing to do her part and a bit more, she shows this same energy and vigor in social affairs. Mary will throw herself wholeheartedly into any enterprise she undertakes and her determina- tion, energy and vigor are sure to win success! So we simply say: "May your fondest dreams come true, Mary."

Somehow her pleasantness and joyousness would chase our dull care and worry away. Having no sympathy with gloom, 'Rene always saw the funny side of things and this was most fortunate for her classmates, for she imbued them with this same merry spirit. Ever-ready with her infectious smile and light-hearted spirit, she made many a day happy for us: old man gloom never won even a glance from this child of the ready smile and cheery word. 'Rene was always so full of fun and so mischievious that she made us get our little "imps nf mischief" busy too. Her innocent look concealed the guilt of many an innocent prank.

She can come out of a Methods exam smiling. She can make any class a pleasure by an original remark. We like herg but more than that we respect her. Ruth is the Senior vice- president. And her advice on any topic is worth following. We have never known her to betray trust. Ruth is as frank and natural as the dawn of a bright morning. In four years of class association, we have discovered that she doe-sn't know how to do a mean thing. We have never detected anything but warmth in her greeting. The Seniors welcome Ruth into any group in the class, glad to have her and her kind humor among them. She was elected Class Prophet for more reasons than one. Besides being able to write entertainingly fshe is on the year-book staffj, she is wise in her judgments, kind in her criticisms, and delightful in her subtle observations. Ruth will be loyal to her class and her college. Sure we are of that. In saying that we will never forget her, we feel in our hearts that Ruth will never forget us. She will laugh with us to the very end: Ruth will, and even times of depression will never dim her smile. In her, we give the world a tried and true apostle of good cheer.

XX'hen we first met "Fran," we said, "Ah, here is a student," meaning, of course, the grindy. fussy type of student. And did "Fran" fulfill our expectations! Not a bit! Studious though she is at times, "Fran" never gave us any alarms that she would develop into a type, prim and begoggled, that terrilies and horrilies an occasional classroom. She has demonstrated very often that "Brevity is the soul of wit." "Fran" has always been a true friend, a good sport, and a pleasing companion. We always have told her that her temper matched her hair, but we were fooling all the while. We say truthfully now, "One of the sunniest dispositions in the class!" "Fran" has always seemed to us like one of her beautiful violin pieces, tender, soothing and lilting. Long after the violin has ceased to send forth its song, the melody lingers in the heart of those who heard it. Though long years pass before we meet "Fran" again, she will never leave our hearts and memories.

Never boisterous, never harsh spoken, she has serenely accompanied us in our campus days. She is always responsive to the call of her books, reading, writing,-they are second nature to her. A real student, she studies for the pure delight of obtaining knowledge, of becoming learned. We know we can always depend on Mary. that we can go to her always with questions and problems about our lessons, and be sure that we will not be disappointed. With dark brown hair, carefully smoothed back, and dark brown eyes to match, she has ever been a welcome arrival in any group, on the campus or off. We have great hopes of finding her name listed high on the roll call of educators and scientists. For Mary is a scientihc person-how she likes to examine specimens under a microscope in Biology! And yet, Mary's hobby is Latin. While we groan and scowl over Latin sentences, Mary is in her glory.

Wfith test tube in hand she conducts experiments with neatness and efficiency, at ease in the laboratory be it Biology or Chemistry. Nurtured in a city famous for its winter sports, natures lore fascinates her. But Monica's extra-curricular activities prove her earnest in play as in work. At a dance. she is ever charmingly sophisticated: at a class party, she is in the midst of the fun. Four years of intimate contact with Monica have left pictures of her-hastily gathering her books, crushing her hat on her head and dashing for the train,-sitting day-dreaming with that far-away look in her eyes,-tapping with her pencil as she seriously explains the advantages of various vocations and avocations,-bubbling over with enthusiasm as she tells about a delightful week-end. Her dancing brown eyes reveal a wholesome sense of humor, her soft. dark hair flows back in deep waves revealing a generous brow. We pause in our march to salute a brave and noble soul.

She has shown an active interest in the dramatic presentations of college and class, and her splendid performance in "Richelieu" leaves a picture that will always be framed in our memories.

"Munnie" was ever active, too, in the Dramatic Society where she proved so able, that after taking prominent parts in many different plays, she was chosen president of the society in her Senior year, and, through her earnest and sincere effort, it became more popular than it had ever been before. Het interpretation of "Leah" in "Pilates Daughter" made college history. Not only along executive lines did "Munnie" excel, however, but along histrionic lines as well. Her marvelous portrayal of any and all sorts of characters won for her fame in Oratorical Contests, respect from the student body and admiration from her classmates who prided themselves on her being one of them. For such a girl, we predict constant success and a bright and happy future, knowing that all cannot help but be well with her who is beloved by her friends.

Do not shudder, we are only going to penetrate under the calm exterior that has presented to the joys and ups and downs of college an inscrutable smile-a mere flickering light in the eyes-an imperceptible movement of the hands. Dignity is her guiding star. We venture to say that Rita has never gone any place without it, but we also hazard the opinion that she has never gone any place where she has not been most welcome. Her dignity is a charming species of the genus. The lifted glass has revealed: sincerity, that spoke clearly and from the heart, graciousness, that betokened her innate sweetness of spiritg an understanding smile, that radiated happy encour- agementg and we see flowing beneath the surface the sparkling generosity that springs from it soul that understands.

At first we thought her blasee, and Oh! so much more sophis- ticated than we, but on knowing her better, we discovered that "Shorty" was as much as any of us, a very timid Freshman, and beneath the surface was as young and naive as we. Her penchant for story-telling has done much to keep our merriment high, especially at those times when we were very lonely. She may never have kissed the Blarney Stone, but we think someone must have chipped off a piece and sent it to her.

Thorough and methodical in her study, she does what most of us just plan to do.

SEPT. 17. 1951. Dear Little Diary: I finally won and my parents brought me up to the College of Our Lady of the Elms. It is the most formidable place on the outside. but the girls seem to be awfully nice. They do not look a bit like College Women, in fact they look rather like the girls in high school, not the least like what I imagined them to be. We registered . . . that is, we copied all the subjects off the left hand side of the board in the "Freshman Study Hall." No wonder we need a special study hall with all those subjects. Some of the girls introduced themselves. and when Mother and Dad left, I thought that per- haps I might stay over night. With a trunk half unpacked, a bell rang with the most imperious sound, and everyone dashed down to the dining room. Someone put a salad on the table, and we all just sat. Someone put some cake on the table, and we all just sat. Someone took the salad and the cake from the table. lt seems there is no main course at supper!!! We spent the next few hours finishing the trunks. making beds, and answering the stupid questions some girls, who said they were seniors, asked.

"Go, songs, and come not back from your far way: And if men ask you why ye smile and sorrow, Tell them ye grieve, for your hearts know today: Tell them ye smile for your eyes know tomorrow." 1 I 6 ELMATA 0 Glass Prophecy RUTH M. GRADY PON my decision to attend the Graduation exercises of the College of Our Lady of the Elms-Class of 1945-I made plans to go. I had met "Kay" McDonough and she had wished to go, too, but, due to the fact that she was now a Principal at the Chestnut Street School in Springfield and expected the superintendent that very Monday, she could not gratify her wish. So I departed alone in my trusy thirty-two Cad- illac, and had just turned in the driveway on the campus, when insistent honking caused me to investigate and there, pulling up beside me, were Clare Dugan and "Dot" Dowd. We quickly parked our cars, then I piled in with them and did we talk! We gave each other all available news, and it was then I learned that Clare was lhe Famous book reviewer and critic, who wrote under the fictitious name of C. Murray Feeney. "Dot" was editor of that well-known page in the Saturday Evening Post entitled Postcripts, and was wittily successful. She had tidings of "Bobbie" Hughes, but I already knew that the baby-face member of our class now had a sweet little baby of her own whom she had christened Edwina. Clare informed me that "Rit" O'Dea was a happy bride, too, and a resident of Passaic, New jersey. I, too, had some information for them. Mary Houlihan was now a successful business woman-the owner of a bookstore in Holyoke which featured second-hand books and tolerated the very latest. Mary Galway, I had learned, was soon to leave for South America, where she had obtained a position to teach Spanish to the Spaniards. After these exchanges, we three made our way to the Administration Building and entered Veritas Auditorium, with a silence begotten of awe. We were no sooner seated than a sweet St. joseph nun came up to talk to us. It was Elmeda Harty, looking as red-cheeked as ever, and very, very happy. She was Sister Lawrence, one of the teachers of French at the College. She chided us on not returning to our Alma Mater more often, and, after lame excuses and many promises on our part to reform, we asked about Margaret Waltz, and learned that she was now tutoring the children of Governor Connor of Massachusetts, and just loved the position. The exercises were about to begin, so Sister Lawrence left us to participate in the academic procession. We sighted Grace Kaley, but could not attract her attention, so we quelled our curiosity until the end of the program. There were inspiring essays, and the honor students delivered them with an eloquence long since traditional at "The Elms," but, of course, we knew in our heart they were not quite so good as the commencement speakers of '35, The Class Orator had for her essay "The Elms in the World," and we were indeed proud to find some of our very own classmates cited. Kathleen Mungiven was named and was duly praised for het many successful performances at New York's newest and smartest theatre! Mention was made, too, of julia Toole, for the prominence she had gained 54 v-- . 1935 Cx f? ELMATA CX fa through her new book, just out, entitled "Proper Methods for Teaching." Three hun- dred colleges had adopted it as a text-book. And the College was proud, too, of a distinguished interior decorator in the person of Catherine Conaty, whose reputation along that line had spread so that now she was in such demand that she had just been engaged to beautify the White I-Iouse. It was also announced that Rita Mclnnis had been appointed Playground Supervisor in Springfield, and she was lauded for her successful enterprise in forming, in connection with the Playgrounds, the Children's Auxiliary to the S. P. C. A. We had clapped heartily on hearing this news, but when the Vice-President arose and announced the winner of the Via Veritatis medal was Miss Doris Clement, we clapped harder than ever. Her work in mobilizing students to active participation in Catholic Action Clubs had merited for her this coveted medal. She had just completed a successful campaign of organization in the South. Unfor- tunately, she was unable to be present for she was then attending a conference of Catholic Action Clubs in Washington, where she was the voice of New England. The exercises over, we made a bee line for Grace Kaley, and she was proudly sporting a diamond ring, but believe it or not, she was as reticent as ever, and put a "ban on" discussing the identity of the fortunate young man. She told us that "Al" Moline was assistant manager of Paul's Collegiate Inn, a very successful establishment in Amherst. Grace told us, too, of Mary Giblin, who, in school days, loved French- or should I say the French-and was at present touring France, but not alone, still determined to master the French no matter what the cost fto himj. Grace had to leave, and we too decided it was time to depart, but not without making a visit to the new Chapel. It was lovely, but we couldn't help thinking of the devotional simplicity of our little red Chapel. Kneeling within was a familiar figure who, when she rose to leave, we saw was "Ceil" Ford, looking as girlish as ever in spite of being married for three whole years. We joined her later outside, and, after complimenting her on how well she looked, we discovered it was no wonder, for she had just spent a pleasant restful vacation of two weeks in Boston, visiting Anne McLellan, who had also enjoyed a vaca- tion from her very strenuous duties as Social Service Supervisor of one of B0ston's largest districts. With many promises of writing and visiting, "Ceil" left us, and Clare and "Dot" thought it best to start for Worcester, where they were to stop off at "Fran" Hardimans to celebrate her engagement to one of the youngest and most admirable admirals in the Navy. I, too, left for home, and was not in long when the phone rang. I answered and it was Irene Glista, teasing me to go into Springfield and shop and go to supper and a show. I agreed, and we met, but, although we had been meeting on and off like this, I realized that this time there was something different about "Rene," and I felt she was about to disclose something pretty important. It was out before longdher sister had been recently married and "Rene" was her bridesmaid, and the best man at the wedding had decided to become a groom, and had asked "Rene" to marry him. She said she had FDCI him a year before, and, since then, they had been corresponding for 1955 F Si ex fa ELM-Am -4 CN f? he was a resident of Florida, and had found it necessary to return there to business, to guide and supervise a land boom. This time, however, he was to return with "Rene" as his wife. She was busy getting a trousseau together, and had been to New York, where she had picked out her bridal gown. Was I surprised when she told me that "Gert" Fish had designed it, and that "Gert" had also designed the rest of her trousseau! "Gert," or I should say, Madamoiselle Poisson, had recently been transferred from Montreal, so when she and "Rene" met they decided to look up "Millie" Erickson, who was starring in a musical comedy with Fred Astaire. The day "Rene" left New York, "Gert" was to go over to see Stella Shaughness, who was head of the new Donnellan Library in jamaica. "Rene" certainly had had some news, and I had exclaimed and exclaimed. Hence when we met "Smitty," we were glad to hear someone else talk. "Smitty" had at last realized her life-long ambition, although rare in a woman, of being the owner of a trucking concern-for she now had the enterprising firm of Carlton 8: Smith, and was doing a thriving business. We three dined together, "Smittyf' told us of Monica Kings good luck, for her aunt had left her a sizable fortune, and she was enabled to take her aunt's place as leader of the Four Hundred in New York City. The three of us then made our way to a theatre, where we enjoyed a good picture, and, promising to go down to Enfield in a few days, I took leave of my Connecticut classmates, and took the last bus home. What a busy day I had had! How full of pleasantness-indeed I was so delighted to have heard both directly and indirectly of my former classmates that I then and there determined to go more often to Graduation Exercises at O. L. E., and to keep in touch with those classmates and their varied activities. What a class ours was! Will Our Lady of the Elms ever see its like again? We hope so, but we fear not. Our best advice to all is . "Although you can never be like us, Be as like us as you're able to be." 56 - - - 1935 .... 6 A ELMATA LACK fj Will of Class of '3 HEN in the course of human events it becomes obligatory to depart from this collegiate life, we, the Class of 1935, in our being of sound minds and happy hearts, do Last Will and Testament, and declare all other documents In loving remembrance, we leave to our Alma Mater customary spirit of generosity, hereby declare this to be our made by us to be null and void. an era of peace and rest. After four riotous years, she deserves a little respite, even if it be only till next fall. Upon the Faculty, we bestow our heartfelt thanks for their understanding and patience. We leave them all our notebooks and special assignments to be used as models for their succeeding classes. No doubt they will use them as "What not to do" Models, but even at that our work shall not have been in vain. To the juniors, we leave the privilege of saying the Rosary at Tuesdays Chapel, the delightful pleasure of sixteen philosophy exams, several "tres interessants livres fran- cais," an optional history class each Friday afternoon, with the hope that they will see fit to take the option. We also bequeath them a mechanical clapper, for which they will undoubtedly find good use. To the Sophomores, we leave all the love and gcod wishes of their Sister Class, several life-like forms to take their places in Chapel mornings, so that appearances at least, will be all right, a guide book on, "How to run your junior Prom," and a private post office to take care of their daily flood of mail. To the Freshman Class, we leave our drag with the faculty, by which we saved our- selves from Hunks most of the time, a little advice on how to develop the dignity that was ours, and a few admonitions that Holy Cross men aren't the biggest prizes in the world. Kathleen Mungiven leaves a rare collection of original Latin manuscripts to Kate McDermott, also Room 5 and permission to clean the closet at least twice a week for old times sake. Grace Kaley leaves a substitute to rendezvous with Marie Foley between classes. Monica King leaves her "shack" in Greenfield to Mary Lalor, so that she can take her classmates there on weekend parties. Cath Conaty leaves her sister Bunny her remarkable skill in getting inside knowl- edge first and infallibly. Ruth Grady leaves her terse style in English composition to Evelyn Welch, leaving as a striking example one theme containing exactly seven words, "I hope there is justice in heaven." There was surely justice on earth that day when Ruth wrote one sentence to everybody else's pages. Gertrude Fish leaves her "Beano Game" to Louise Welch with full instructions "on how to gyp the unsuspecting underclassmenf' Elmeda Harty leaves her ability to understudy the French professor to anybody who thinks herself capable of filling the position. If no such person is available, Elmeda will give private lessons to any aspirant. Ceil Ford leaves the directions for her latest head dress to Margie Woodin, who might be able to improve upon it, but we doubt it. To the junior Day students, the Senior Day Students leave the quietness that pre- vailed in the study hall only when Seniors were present. Clare Dugan leaves her room to Dot Wildman as a haven of solitude if her need is ever such, and to everyone attending an auction sale in said room, she will leave upon pay- ment of a suitable price anything they have enough money to pay for, and she doesn't want. 1 6 1955 57 fx ELMATA - CN f? Louise Smith leaves a collection of the worst looking pictures in captivity to Helen Olchowski to add to the inimitable collection which already graces her bureau. Rita O'Dea leaves Frannie O'Brien a very enjoyable trip on the gasolene train, with the sincere hope that her classmate will escort her there in style, and that the stove to warm one's feet on will still be there. julia Toole leaves the mystery of solving what the "K" in her name stands for to Dot Cruze who might be interested in a little research work. Mary Galway leaves her imposing array of drug store supplies to Ann Leach, as well as several musical scores to make the irksome task of gargling more aesthetic. Mary Giblin leaves the distinctive honor of riding in her car, to all Springfield girls, this bequest to become effective next year when Mary won't be coming up this way anyhow. For the first time in six years. Kay McDonough leaves the school without a McDonough. Millie Erickson leaves her seat in the front row of the philosophy class to the highest bidder-in the coming junior Class. and to Rita Ford she leaves a pair of wooden heeled bedroom slippers to sound taps for her "Ten o'clock scholar" classmates. Bobbie Hughes leaves Betty McCarthy her rose dance to add to her already extensive "one manishowf' and to Flossie Dunn she leaves her eHfervescence over the opposite sex. Alice Moline leaves a beautiful blond wig to Peg Wzilsli with the admonition not to wear it out at night lest she should frighten any weak hearted person. Margaret Waltz leaves her fondness for examinations, blue books and everything connected with them to Ruth Dunleavy. V Mary Houlihan leaves Dot Zielinski her secret of how to be late for first period classes by stalling the car somewhere between Holyoke and Chicopee. Rita Mclnnis leaves a snappy fur coat Qminimum age, seven years guaranteedj to Katherine Toole as a loving reminder of rumble seat rides in the cool hours of the morning. Doris Clement leaves to Frances Mangin a friend of a friend of hers, and to any aspiring Freshman a letter of introduction to one of Chicopees most eligible. Stella Shaughness leaves a round trip ticket to Worcester to Mickie McCann with the sincere hope that she will do as well there on weekends, as Stella did. Mickie McLellan leaves a pass to all Springfield theatres to be used every spare afternoon, to Roberta Decker. Bert has only to present the pass at the box oflice, pay the admission price, and the pass is good as long as she wants to use it. Fran Hardiman leaves a bottle of guaranteed hair dye to Peg Murphy and a pamphlet entitled, "How I Kept Ally Bob" to Betty Hannigan. Irene Glista leaves her ability to scare the wits out of people who try to annoy when one is trying to sleep, to any Dormer who has a difiicult time protecting her rights. The Senior boarders leave the Junior boarders their dorm, trusting that they will never profane it by silence and over-primnessg to the Soph boarders they leave permission to play the radio far into the night if they so desire, and instructions on how to stay awake after midnight to one somnolent girl. To the Freshmen we leave only our earnest hope that they will realize when they are no longer Freshmen how very noisy Frosh can be. To one and all we wish all the joy that was ours within these walls for four happy years. All our best wishes, our love and our trust are yours, Our Lady of the Elms, forever. Our final legacy to you is the loyalty of your daughters through all the vistas of the years. Signed and sealed this fifth day of june, nineteen hundred and thirty-five.

For this class is indeed the symbol of the highest colors, the brightest interludes of college life! Everything they do is done in the grand manner, and accompanied with spirit-joie de vivre-and spontaneity. Gay-they are never otherwise, clever-they boast some of the most talented mem- bers of the Dramatic, Debating, and Glee Clubs, athletic-their green jerseys are seen swooping down the gym floor as they rush headlong into inter-class contests, and they have managed to be uncomfortably victorious in these contests. They are eager to do things, anxious to please and stretch forth willing hands for all duties. Did you attend their Prom? No? That's your bad luck. We cannot describe it any more than we can forget it. Exams, studies, they take them in one stride, worries, they laugh them away. Can you doubt their abilities to step into the lofty places of us Seniors? If you doubt it- ask the Class of '36, they are ready with word and action to prove their right to be called the coming seniors, the up and stepping class of O. L. E. They will try anything twice, and succeed both times. 1955 61 CN f, IQLMAIA - Cx f? uuior DireC't0ry RIIA M. BIIc.KI.I1Y Pittsfield MARI,ARI2T M. CQANAVAN XXICSI Springfield IWARY A.

From this let it not be inferred that they offer all spice and nothing sub- stantial, for their spice is just sufficient to offset their more substantial virtues. Steady-although still a trifle young-they have marked out the tempo of their progress and are advancing rapidly along the road to an A. B. degree. , Every time this sister class of ours achieves some new goal or succeeds in some aim, we beam with pride-we sit back and look complacent. Did we not foretell their talent, their energy, and their efhciency when they first entered our portals? Have we not sponsored them-nay-did we not escort them on Freshman night, and initiate them into the friendliness and goodfellowship of an Elm's Circle? Yes, they are a credit to their models and teachers, worthy of one day donning our mantles. Although they have left the Freshman ranks, and are scaling the intellectual heights of Sophomore year, we still think of them as "Our Freshmen," and we still cherish them with a foster mother devotion. We opened the path to them, and they have followed it better than we planned. We hail you, Class of '37-our sister class-let us clasp your hand 'ere sisters bid sisters adieu. 65 1955 - . 1- I ex fo?

Perhaps that explains why college seniors always make the "timid" freshmen the object of their quipsa The Class of '38 will no doubt be anxious to see this page to find out what the venerable Class of '35 has to say about our I.ady's Cherubs. They probably can recall echoes of "green" and "verdant" as adjectives describing their early antics. Alas! we too recall that we used these adjectives but we plead that we meant them only as a safeguard against the danger of over-weening self- esteem. We wanted to impress upon you the seriousness of your defects fyou lui e one- that of receiving more mail than any other classj so that you would not be aware of your numerous advantages. Now, however, you are well on your way to the high estate of sophomoric sophis- tication. Soon you will attain the sangfroid that this class holds as its special distinction: hence we consider it safe to let you know how glad we were to have you with us. We called you "green" because that was our favorite color. You were a real acquisition, socially and intellectually. You were a wonder class at making friends and college years will only cement and strengthen these friendships. Though we chided you about your tender years, there was a glow about you that radiated warmth and geniality in which we all wished to bask. We admit we practiced deep deception when we "put you in your place" and even tried to make you wear "beautiful bows" as a sign of your lowly place in academics, but we hope that now we have atoned-that the scales are balanced and that you understand that our senior dignity imposed on us the duties of "riding" you, and our senior dignity was the only thing that prevented us from giving you three rousing cheers. 1935 69 fX 17 ELMATA Cx 'G Freshman Directory RITA AHIZARN Springfield HLLIEN E.

STELLA SHAUGHNESS OMEWI-IAT skeptical about a subject which openly presented so many difficulties, we crossed the threshold of junior year and the Philosophy lecture room almost simultaneously. Before very long, we learned that "Skepticism is absurd," and once assured, we settled down to become philosophers. We studied Minor and Major Logic, Ontology and Cosmology, and joined the Metaphysical Club, electing officers to guide and record our discussions. Our meetings took the form of philosophical circles, and we grew more adept at answering objections- and at making them,-and more proud of our skill as the year went by. It was our pleasure to make the Sophomores and Fresh- men open their eyes in wonder and dismay when, in the assembly held on the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, we assured them in terms philosophical that their cognitive faculties are per se infallible. We remembered our own experiences during past assemblies, and found a retributive glee in the amazed expressions they wore. These same expressions might be seen on junior faces when the orals came around, for these dreaded exams nearly made us lose our newly acquired confidence, but they passed without the occurrence of any major catastrophes. Senior year introduced us to Ethics and more of the "ologies"-Sociology, Psy- chology, Natural Theology. Now that we had learned to weigh the many systems, we joined another club, the Catholic Action Club, and summarized and criticized theories that differed in few or many details from our own. When the feast of our patron saint again occurred, we presented a program which might well be called the "Evolution of Evolution," for we outlined the history of this much discussed question, and its doctrine as taught by the many schools. Through all our dilhculties we have been patiently guided by a kind Professor who has ever manifested a friendly willingness to help, who has encouraged our ques- tions and aided us in understanding the answers, and who has presented our course in such a way as to provide the minimum of difficulties, and a maximum of interest. Perhaps we are not philosophers yet. In fact, we know that in two years we could not be expected to learn all that philosophers have compiled through the ages, but we feel that we have gained a new power-power to think clearly, weigh carefully, and draw intelligent conclusions from our reasoning. Right thinking means true econ- omy, and we have learned to be economical. - - 72 1935 'ire fa ELMATA ifx fj Dramatic Club Prerideuf, KATHLEEN MLINGIXVEN Vive-Prerfdezzf, KATHLEEN MCDERMOTT Seri-emi-y, RUTH HANAN NE of the most interesting and best-attended extra-curricular activities in the College is the Dramatic Club. Since Freshman days the members of the Class of 1955 have been ardent disciples of Thespia, contributing not a little to the success of this society, and enjoying to the utmost the parts they were allowed to play. The Dramatic Club conducted one-act play tournaments during each year in which the four classes competed. During our Freshman year the prize was material gain, but we did not have the good fortune to be the winners that year. The play presented by the Freshman class was "Castle's in Spain," and what consternation there was when two of the leading characters almost forgot to show up for the performance and the alarm clock fsupposed to be substituting for a doorbellj went off at the wrong time. Sophomore Year we presented "Overtones,,' a serious type of play, but still our comedy-loving class managed to detract a little from its graveness when one of the pictures fell down on our heroine's head. junior Year we rollicl-:ed to our heart's content in "The Hiartville Shakespeare Club," a comedy suitable to the abilities of '35. We won the tournament that year but the reward had changed from mere materialism to the singular privilege of presenting the play in conjunction with the annual Glee Club Concert. During our junior Year the College sponsored Bulwer-Lytton's "Richelieu," which was a remarkable success. Several important roles were undertaken by members of our class. The College play of our Senior Year was "Pilate's Daughter," which was pre- sented to a more than capacity audience on Palm Sunday evening. It was so well received that the one act play tournament was dispensed with for the year, and another per- formance of "Pilate's Daughter" was given. Besides the plays, meetings are held at which stage technique, reviews of current plays, and talks on contemporary actors are rendered by members of the club. Kathleen McDermott gave an interesting talk on the Berkshire Playhouse, and Stella Shaughness, informally and most enrertainingly, told us about Radio City Theatre, the Music Hall and recent performances she had seen there. It is with real regret that we leave the Dramatic Club to our successors. We have enjoyed presenting our plays very much, for in so doing, we were, for a little while, putting off the reality of everyday for the glamour of "Make-believe." Some of us perhaps, may have our names emblazoned in the galaxy of the stars, but many of us, no doubt, have played our final roles in "theatrical circles." But we shall, one and all 7 keep the memory of our Dramatic Club among the happiest pictures of our College daysl 1935 73 -t - CN f? ELMATA AE- .L-.1--f 1935 ,........ Ti1X.?

REAVEY HE combined Musical Clubs of the College of Our Lady of the Elms, which include an orchestra, a string ensemble and a glee club, have made us proud since they have done much to add to the already splendid reputation the College enjoys. The members of the orchestra, who have given freely of their time and talent, will not be forgotten, for the echoes of sweet strains of music will always recall their earnest and successful playing. It was they who during bridges, teas and other social functions lightened the atmosphere and contributed so much to the pleasure and enjoyment of the gathering. And was it not the string ensemble that rendered so ably, beautiful selections which captured the vast audience at that never-to-be-forgotten performance in Springfield Auditorium? As for the Glee Club-words fail us, for their harmonious voices, blended softly for Christmas Carols, successfully singing difficult selections, or "woofing" loudly like the Big Brown Bear, made us realize that here was a Club to be proud of, to boast of and, to those of us not fortunate enough to be members of it, to be a little jealous of. The talents of the Clubs reflect the efforts of a talented directress who gave unceas- ingly of her gifts and time that these Musical Clubs might be successful. She ever urged them on to new achievements, and we are glad to say her efforts were not in vain for not only privately did they make a splendid showing but publicly as well. None of us will forget and, if we would, outsiders could not allow us to forget how splendidly the Musical Clubs acquitted themselves at the concert in connection with Father Hubbard's Lecture at the Springfield Auditorium. There before a vast audience they made their important public debut and won a spontaneous ovation which surpassed our fondest hopes. Then too, at their own annual concert in Veritas Auditorium, the Clubs again proved worthy of the trust imposed in them, for they were again thoroughly appreciated by a large and responsive audience. Our Musical Clubs have arrived! They will miss us, of course. We hope, however, the gaps created in their ranks by our departure will soon be filled by more talented, perhaps, but never more loyal members. 1955 75 , - rx fx?" 6ELMATAf,?- Athletic Association Pi-eridezzf, KATHLEliN L.

The Athletic Association is the single unit, the central pivot on which revolves the recreational life of our students. It is this band of the athletically inclined which directs inter-class contests, regulates athletic miles, and super- vises the ardous task of "collecting" dues. Because of the hustle and bustle of school projects, the order and system that the Athletic Association has established is oft neglected and too seldom does it capture the spotlight. The cheers of its loyal members ring out against the sturdy walls at every class contest: sister class encourages sister class and what vocal abilities hitherto unknown come to light as every throat strains for the last "Hurrah l" When june announces that the time has arrived for our annual banquet, we get ready for recollections of old victories and for sighs over past defeats. We prepare for song and jest and for the feast, to prove our ability to partake of banquet after banquet during one week in the year and still survive. The Athletic Association has held a noticeable position in the rounding out of college life and in preventing an "all work and no play" atmosphere from making Mary or Betty a very dull and listless girl. 76 i 1935 'iv fa CN f?

MARGARET CLIFFORD T is customary for most people, especially members of the masculine sex, to dismiss the attempts of members of our fair sex to debate as mere attempts and feeble ones at that. We call to witness our M. B. Debating Society to send any such hallucina- tion scampering off to the four winds. We are proud of the work of this society. It gives us a tingle of pleasure to watch our class representatives hammer away at rebuttals, and, with Ere in their eyes, equal any exhibitions we have attended at our brother colleges. The persuasiveness that constitutes forceful debating, the poise that marks a finished speaker, the logic that characterizes a well-planned argument are but a few of the points that the training in this club emphasizes. The art of speaking eloquently is a noble one and one that will bear fruit in later years, it will have its maturity in a graceful and accomplished oratory which will serve as a framework in our defense of our con- victions and principles. The encouragement that we needed to make pioneer steps in this Held was always supplied without reserve by our Sister Coach, her suggestions were always apt and her sympathy and friendliness such as to make us most grateful to her. When we ventured into the social life this year with a welcome party for our Freshmen members, she was ready with all her "little helps" as she called them but which were, in reality, "the big ones." The work accomplished in the bi-monthly meetings of this society can be best judged by the inter-class debates. These debates mark the crescendo of our debating year and are held among the four classes. The two final teams engage in a public debate and the enthusiasm of the whole college is divided when they bring forward all their arts in their efforts to prove their superiority and gain the coveted Memorial prize donated by Rev. A. Riordan of Milford, Mass. The debate over, the purse won, the stage empty, once more the curtain swings down on the M. B. Debating Society. All is silent, far away one seems to hear the echoes of a heated argument, the swaying of an ardent speaker and then, as the breeze stirs through the windows,-dark- ness. 1955 77 CN f? ELMATA QX f?

A practical aspect of the Corte Castellana, this year, was its pedagogical number in which it presented an attractive program, showing admirably the value of direct method teaching. The members of La Corte Castellana who have been privileged to drink deep at this Pierian spring, have received refreshment and delight which will ever be a source of pleasure to them.

LAURA Cfxcacgn enjoyed to the full the splendid opportunities of our college while she was our classmate. Now we are sure that Webster Groves is proud to claim this travelling collegian, who sought from everything the best. Greenfield is fortunate to hold safe in its arms the gay young person whom we knew as "BETTY" KIELLIEHIER. "Betty" to us was friend and playmate-her presence kept us bright-her memory we still keep bright. MARIAN VINCllZNT'S stay with us lasted but a few short months, yet we remember many happy Freshman Days with her. After leaving "The Elms," she went to Art School to devote herself to her favorite talent. "MIflKIli" MURRAY, who was with us for three memorable years, is now residing in Pennsylvania and has changed her name to Mrs. joseph G. Ambrose.

Soclality UR LADY OF THE lZLMSea new title for the queen of heaven, and one which in our estimation holds all the glory of divine respect and all the beauty of eternal love. For seven years our Sodality has given, at the outset of the year, a priceless gift to every member. It has given to her daughters the "Mother of fair love, and of knowledge and of holy Hope," who has always been the ideal toward which they tend. Under careful direction and supervision we, as Sodalists, have studied the qualities of Mary and have through the work of the Sodality showed ourselves to be her children in action as well as in word. Our Rev. Director and Sister Directoress incul- cated in us their own spirit of spiritual strength and supernatural love and by their own zeal and fortitude spurred us on when the path was rocky. From them we learned the sweetness of being "Mary's Handmaidsf' Through the work of the Sodality we came to a realization of what Catholic Action truly means, we obtained a just estimate ol' Catholic literature and began to be on familiar terms with modern as well as past Catholic writers. At every meeting some Catholic topic was clothed in vital words and vigorously presented by the members of one of the four major committees who planned and executed the meetings. However, Sodality meetings were not entirely business-likeg we had our socials where laughter was king and the very rooms trembled with the joyous spirit of our voices lifted in exultation and we had our spiritual meetings, the loveliness of which, like incense, will be wafted back to us in remembrance holding us close to the heart of Mary. The heart of Mary has been our aim. We have striven by the rungs of the ladder of devotion to climb into that haven of rest and peace, we have desired to taste the sweet fruits of Mary's benignity, to be the singers of Marys praises to build our characters in the form of her character, and the Sodality has been our means to the accomplishing of this end. Now when the blossoms of May are stretching out their colors and fragrance to you, O Mother, now when all peoples are chanting "Tis the month of our Mother" we bid the Sodality good-bye, but there are no farewells for theeg O Mother most dear, our whispered words to thee are "Regina Caeli jubila, Gaude Maria," for we, thy children, will always stand with tributes of the flowering of our hearts. 94 C 1935 CN fj W fa X f wg f 4 FX "Fixx ocial vents cXEL1ViATA6E --, Ei: W, F. . 1935 CN f?

After months of planning the lookedafor night arrived in all the glory of sub-zero weather. The hustle and bustle ceasede- calm and serenity appeared from the confusion. We arrived, we entered, wc gasped. A veritable fairyland of winter stretched out before us. Moon and stars glowed and twinkledg the purple of the sky was mingled with the silvery glint overhead. A snow man, of great proportions and with all the winter coloring even to his nose, laughed merrily at us as we danced by to the music of Bill Dehey's Orchestra. At the midnight hour, we paused for refreshment, then continued our dancing until the last musical note died away. Thus, with the glow of purple and the sparkle of silver we added one more social success to our calendar of college events. Fairyland vanished and we entered another, its twin, but so much colder, that we wished in vain for the first again. 1955 87 rx 19 ELMATYX I . . A 4 if fi? - X 7 .'1fA '53 - " '53 N: 7715 in ?.

Our colors of purple and silver were hoisted far and high over sounds of revelry. Never did a ship in the world carry colors more proudly than curs, as we tripped gaily aboard in the early evening at the dock of Our Alma Mater. We gloried in her strength as we danced to the soft, melodious strains drifting through the kaleidoscopic atmosphere We, her passengers and crew, stopped only for the relaxation of the luncheon. Tinkling laughter, soft voices, merry repartee were condiments of the repast. Our last voyage was the merriest, and the one to be stored up in our memory until time shall be no more. The morning came quietly in upon sandals of peace. Shadows of beauty tranquilly stirred on her deck. She was a ship of her time on which we held this, our senior promenade, and in whose atmosphere we played proudly the part of happy hostesses. It was a never-to-be-forgotten sight and night. Of all the many marvelous ships, the sturdy bark Elms will ever appeal to us, as the strongest, the loveliest and the stateliest in the collegiate flotella of the world. We left her and walked down the gangplank into the dawn with our hearts filled with triumph and gratitude for our most joyous college night. From this, our Ship of '35, manned by her crew of 27, we say, to all farers on ways upon water or earth: Though you have conquered Earth and Chartered Sea And planned the courses of all Stars that be, Adventure on, more wonders are in thee, Adventure on, for from the littlest clue Has come whatever worth man ever knew, The next to lighten all men may be you." And thus exulting in her triumph we bade a fond farewell and turned to meet the coming dawn. - , 1955 89 fX 'U tXELMATA6?- Elms' Night 9 make our Freshmen feel that they "really belong," the first social event of the year is always held in their honor. The Seniors act as big sisters and guides, and show them the best fand worstj fun possible. We wondered how this Pilfly would turn out, for-just confidentially-the Freshmen didn't look quite so "green" as we had felt when we had been the guests at a similar party a few years before. Our reception began in the refectory, where supper was served by candlelight, in the midst of attractive decorations and happy songs. Supper over, our guests became our "victims," but only for a short time, and we claim that our success in discovering latent talent justified the forfeits we imposed upon our newest schoolmates. Games and dancing, with prizes for both, brought our reception to a close, and when the evening was over, we counted the new Freshmen among our old friends. HE social season of the Sodality was inaugurated with great success by a Silver Bridge held in our spacious gymnasium. It was capably directed and supervised by the Prefect, Clare Dugan and Alice Moline, the general chairman, and presented an autumn scene in its manifold colors which only nature can display. Our Reverend Director, Father Lane, helped us to put our guests at ease. When the card playing was ended, a luncheon was served by members of the Sodality. Prizes were announced and a merry spirit prevailed. The social success of this event contributed much encouragement to the whole col- legiate body for our many future plans already being advanced. 90 ii- - 1935 .... 6 6 P- il The Halloween Part HOSTS and goblins were the least of the many appalling appari- tions present at the Halloween party given to us Seniors by a thoughtful sister class. "Strange sights never seen on land or sea" mingled with still stranger sights in an atmosphere of enthusiastic friendliness. Our Sophomore sisters answercd every requirement for perfect hostesses, and we enjoyed in turn the games, dancing, and traditional Halloween lunch they served: XVhat if they did make us "sing for our suppers"-do foolish things not conducive to the main- tenance of our newly-acquired dignity? We were rewarded with appro- priate and attractive prizes. And on Halloween, we didn't want to be dignified, anyway. Soft lights and spooks gave way to bright lights, laughter and song, and the evening passed all too soon. But the pictures, the fun, and the kindness of our sister class still live and glow in memory. Christmas Part HE annual Christmas party sponsored by the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin was heralded by the students to the strains of "Silent Night," and Christmas carolling, and solos by Frances Mangin, Margaret Murray and Francis Hardiman, in the soft light of the rotunda. The atmosphere was furnished by Christmas decorations, .1 resplendent Christmas tree and later by the arrival of a jolly St. Nicholas. This guest performed her duties by distributing gifts which brought forth laughs of glee and happy smiles. We were deeply honored by the presence, as guest of honor, of our Right Reverend Bishop O'Leary, who contributed much to the social success of our gaiety by announcing the fact that our own vice-president of the College, Father Doyle, was to be invested with a Monsignori. Pleasure knew no bounds when this announcement was received. After lunch we left this charming atmosphere and went out into the cold night with thoughts of good will to everyone and peace upon earth to all men. 1955 91 T ST... .. , ex 4,31-" cXELNlATA4, - The Motherfllaughter Tea LTHOUGH we could never express, in a single afternoon, our appreciation of four years of sacrifice, we strove to convey to our mothers, at the Mother- Daughter Tea, some slight idea of all that is constantly in our hearts. This was an event of May 11, the day before Mothers Day, and, as was but fitting, our tribute to our mothers was conducted by the Sodality of the Blessed Mother. We played bridge with our guests in the gymnasium, which was attractively decorated with apple blossoms and other spring flowers, and, following the bridge game, we enjoyed with them a varied program presented by members of the Sodality. Tea time arrived, with its accompany- ing and delectable dainties, and the afternoon drew to its close before we had really realized its beginning. We were happy that the social program of our Sodality had provided the opportunity to honor our mothers, and to introduce them to our surround ings and our friends. The Annual Reception UR Sodality year reached its climax in the evening of May 14, when the annual reception of the new members took place. The solemn procession of new and old members, the devotional atmosphere surrounding all, the impressive sermon given by Father Reilly and finally the formal enrolment-all made this ceremony one of the most memorable and brought the Sodality year to a fitting close. 92 c 1935 ,tN fj ELMATA CN f?

Shakesperian Institute ORDS,-mere words, of what avail are they in describing the work of such an artist as Dr. Paulding? Witli delicate touch and manly strokes he blends the shadows and lights of the old classics, giving us a love for the old masters. Like a magic wand his skill throws a curtain over himself and we see the broken Cardinal Richelieu, the greedy Shylock, the beautiful Juliet, the cunning Lady Macbeth. The innovation of the Shakesperian Institute was a testimony of our appreciation of this actor who, without scenery or the support of a cast, could make us react to the great plays. And so we can only say with Shakespeare: "His deeds exceed all speech." 1955 .ul 97cm ,. cs 4 ----Q, Father Hubbard N a cold, sparkling, snowy night, we packed into the Springfield Auditorium and I'116I not only a noted scientist, but an entertaining and charming priest, for Earlier Hubbard fuses the two very successfully. Although as a geologist his work is the focus of worldrwide attention, and although he has garnered a multitude of golden opinions for his intrepid investigations, we were chiefly attracted to him because of his own magnetic personality. He left the impress of skilled mind and keen intellect. His voice rang with the sincerity of a stalwart character: his smile told of the big heart that loves Alaska because it has souls to save. The facts that he presented were cold and clear, charged with meaning for the scientist, they might have become obscure for us if the delivery, manner, and radiant enthusiasm of the man himself had not galvanized them into warm colors and lively vividness. Under his leadership, we voyaged up through the "New Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes," we traversed treacher- ous quicksands with him, and we camped in the midst of the petrified forest, and voted Father Hubbard the worlds best cicerone. During this enchanting trip, through a world that was unreal and ghostlike, we learned many new facts, we came upon many interesting discoveries fthe discovery that New England Winters offer a colder brand of weather than Alaska does was the most startlingj, but above all we were the witnesses of an epic of Courage. The fearlessness, optimism and humor of a great man were revealed to us. Here was a man of deepest Christian Faith. In his exposition of the truth, he showed us the way'to the source of truth, and, as scientist and priest, he held out, to us his basic principle, HNATURES LAWS POINT THE WAY TO NATURES GOD." The all-embracing eagerness of his expression, the friendliness and the candor of his smile, made us acutely aware of the charm of this eminent priest, and while his achievements command our admiration and respect, his spirit recalls to our minds the works of Vachel Lindsay "TO LIVE IN MANKIND IS FAR MORE THAN TO LIVE IN A NAME." You have gained renown, a glorious name is yours, but we give to you the greater glory, eternal memory in humanity's pulsating heart. It will be an abiding source of pride that it was during our Senior year that memorable gathering packed the Auditorium, with an audience that thrilled Father Hubbard as profoundly as his daring achievements and deep scholarship and kindly discourse thrilled us. We might call ourselves "The Earlier Hubbard Class" at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. 96 1935 CN f? UITIOI' QQNQDLMATA Q?"

Now this is the plot, my children, so harkl while I tell it to you, How papa was foiled by Abuster who would have foiled poor Nell, too, If it hadn't been for Jack Dalton who came in the nick of time Our Nell would have been a poor blossom plucked before its prime. Phil heard of some land papa had, that teemed with hidden gold, And papa, not knowing its value, that land to Phil soon sold. The villain planned to sneak away under the cover of night, Holding the deed to the homestead and Nell aswoon with fright. But in rushed the gallant jack Dalton, a noble hero was he, Right up to our Nell he hurried, and dropped upon his knee, "Fair maid, list not to his pleading. Be mine if you value your life, For Phil the Fiend is a robber with ten children,-and a wife." She swooned, poor father whitened, Phil tried to slip away, But the sheriff caught the villain and he lived to rue the day. And pa said, "Bless you, children." Now if you'd like some thrills just see our jack and Nellie in "Thar's Gold in Them Thar Hills." Cnpywi-ringed by the authors. Permission to use this play may be obtained by writing to anyone.

Tuesday morning-third period. Rain on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Getting an 89. French class and the agony of not knowing what to expect. Having your resittings worse than your first ones. Not getting the last period off when it's the day vacation is to begin. Having to conduct class with your own classmates as your class. In the midst of a confab with your neighbor to hear your name suddenly called for recitation. Someone not getting the joke you tell. To see someone hand in three bluebooks to your one. Not to get the expected letter. To have the knock on the door during classes not be for sister. To forget so often in Oral Expression class that you have to get up a second time. Being deprived of some Senior privilege. Ready to take notes and having no ink in your fountain pen. Being told "that was never done before." To go to class without cuffs and have to depart for some. Bringing outside information to Methods class. When the "gal" you love steals the "pal" you love. When the makeshift scenery falls down in the midst of the play. I When D. Dowd, D. Clement and F. Hardiman even look at the mop. When you bring a man to the prom and a kind friend borrows not only the man but the dress that you are wearing. Wlien we tried to play golf on the back campus. When anybody at anytime is asked to do any work. Choir rehearsal on a Saturday night. When the juniors and the Seniors are together in the study hall. When they post your name for not paying Sodality dues and you see a sign "Cash and Carry" for books. When a bridge and football game fall on the same day. When there is no girl in the school big enough to play the pilft of Santa Claus at the Christmas Party. When a holiday and a Holy day come together. "Whore you taking to the Prom? Oh, do I know him? Sure, I think he's the one I went with last year." 100 .. .. 1935 -ire fa Xl? ' 1 CX f? Quotable Quotes On your front window you'll find Harvey with his circulatory system. For your next lesson go back to Great Britain and Ireland. Now we'll take the life of Lucretius. Take away rationality from man and what have I? We haven't seen Fr. Faber in class yet. That's the way your muscles look when you take off your skin. Is a tender conscience ever rare? We'll take Stella for a planet. It was a normal girl giving a lesson. It's too bad that we can't go on for another 100 years. No one has the right to expose life, limb, or health for the gratification of idle curiosity, He died without ever regaining his health. You're not sick you only llviuk you are. I am an ape-Glory bel You have no permission to sit down. Ask the dean. Which Dean? Tell me what I do after I've done it. Have we said the prayer yet girls? Did anyone see the three dark clouds last night? Shes got the measles. Keep him waiting 15 minutes-he'll appreciate you more. Who will carry the bier? Where are the Christian women? A "hymn" to be reverent doesn't have to be slow. The second line begins with "me", A joint is a place where two bones come together. fBoneheads.j One of the most beautiful spots in Enfield is a bridge which was built so that they could cross to the other side. Hold the "flee" and drop the "but." During the Shakesperian Institute: "What night are they going to give that play by Shakespeare?" What a multitude of "shins" these gowns hide. That paper isn'r fireproof. I put a match to it and it burned. Thats the wrong answer and I'm glad that you gave it. fThe kind of teacher we likej "It's a beautiful day!" fWith appropriate Gesturesj I am not the worst singer in the school. She's down the hall.

Mechanical Paradox HEN the world is so full of those little articles-wparadoxesg we wish to call your attention to the fact that we have one, too. We'll call her Ellie, because we never were clever at choosing fitting appellations. Ellie is located quite near the center of our administration building, but "a little more to the right than to the left." What floor is Ellie on? At present, we dont know. Ellie is very simple in structure, but at the same time she is bound up in red tape. Ellie is such a pet that a child could have lots of fun with her, but we Seniors approach her with caution. Sometimes we ride on her back, and what an "uplifting" thought when we "descend" in safety. On the other hand, what a "let-down" to find a reception committee awaiting us after we have "risen." Do we feel "elevated" then? Not at all. We feel very "low," in spite of the heights to which we have "ascended" Another queer contradiction in Ellie. Even when business is "picking up," she records this fact "in the red." Elevation and de- pression are all one to Ellie. We might judge from this that Ellie has no intellect, but she must have at least a certain instinct, for she easily distinguishes between faculty and student demands, responding much more frequently to the former. Inaccessible Accessibilitywour nearest description of this pet who is always with us, but always against us. 102 1935 . 1955 fx f?
