I-IROUGH your prudent foresight and I noble generosity, you saw fit to estab- lish the means whereby the advantages of a college education under Catholic aus- pices would be afforded to the young women of your flock. As President of our College, which has prospered under your kind and gentle leadership, we have come to love and revere you. As members of the Class of '37, we affectionately dedicate this, our Elmata, to you that you may know the sincerity of our gratitude. We beg her, whom you have given us as our beloved patroness, Our Lady of the Elms, to shower upon you her choicest blessings. ETX ELMATAXG The enior's Prayer In modern days, when man would still The eternal voice from Sinai's hill, While critics scan, peruse, deride Mosaic hests, our Christian guide, Must I nor question, nor reply, But shun the iconoclast's wild eye, While Truth the scaffold climbs to die In modern days? Sure on my Commencement fain were I Men by my bier should testify, "Here lies one sunk to kindred dust, To turn men's hearts to God, the just. I-le helped to right much that's awry In modern days." In loving memory, the Class of 1937 cherish these significant verses in commemora- tion of a great life which so perfectly paralleled this epitaph written in youth. The Rt. Rev. Msgr. Patrick F. Doyle composed these lines while a Senior at Holy Cross in 1902. ,.. - 1937 CN f'7 OIIIGIIIS ' CAMPUS FACULTY CLASSES CLUBS ACTIVITIES LITERARY HUMOR ADVERTISEMENTS BIBLE-PLIMPTON COMPANY Sl'RINUFIEl,ll, MASSACII L'SE'I'T5 , . , hngravuny and Art II ark bu JAMES MCKINNON PHOTO ENGRAVINH COMPANY SPRINGFIELD, MASSAUII L'5ET'l'5 ELMATA CN fa To The Faculty O you we are indebted for a multitude of happy and sacred memoriesg and now, at the parting of the wa s, we ex nress our sincere a srecia- Y tion of your unfailing generosity.

If you should chance to journey past our Philosophy Classroom on any line day you might wonder at the huge words uttered as smoothly and swiftly as if they were just so many nursery rhymes. lf you listened attentively you would discover that it was not a dictionary come to lifeg but only our Lucille proving that the weaker sex is not as scatter-brained as we are sometimes accused of being. There arent many questions that can bafiie herg for she is gifted with an excep- tionally logical mind. No matter where she is-in Philosophy, French, English, Methods, or Latin- Lucille has the right answers. She shines in the gymnasium as well. Here her skill in basketball is admired by everyone. It seems incredible that a girl so devoted to her scholastic and athletic activities can still find time for social events, but Lucille manages in some way. She is a con- noisseur of good fun, in the form of movies, dances, parties, and "formals." She knows all the latest dance steps, and it is no unusual sight to see us all grouped around while she executes the most intricate of them. I-ler versatility shows itself in still another way. We have become accus- tomed to depending upon her for many of our business affairs. When we need publicity for a "prom" or some ads. for the Elmata we single her out and she always comes through. Her helpful spirit, her kindness, and thoughtfulness, her sparkling personality, and her keen mind have endeared her to us all.

Everyone knows "Bunny" and will continue to remember her for her cheerful disposition and readiness to help when there was need of help. As a student, "Bunny" was among the best. Her talents are manyfof which she should be justly proud. For instance, as a knitter and dressmaker she is beyond comparefthe beginning, perhaps, of that domestic trend. In addition, she is quite apt at the strumming of her banjo-ulte. For the past two years "Bunny" has held the honorable position of class-treasurer. We join in commending our choice of so competent a financier. In closing we say that "Bunny's" voice will long live in our memories as being "ever soft and lowAa commendable thing in woman." If we may judge the future by the past, we may say with confidence, "Bunny," that wherever life may lead you, success will be there.

The memory of it will linger on in the hearts of those who have encountered her. From that historic town, in the foothills of the Berkshires, Bert Decker came to us in September of '33, Tho she is essentially a fun-lover you would be in deep error, my friend, if you pictured Bert always the gay-miened young lass who gazes at you here. For Bert is ever serious in the presence of things to be done. This quality has made her the recipient of numerous chairman- ships in extra-curriculum and social activities. It has made her more than a worthy opponent in the Athletic Field and in the classroom a scholastic threat to the best of them. Perhaps the Bert most endeared to us, however, is the fun-loving one. Wlmti among us hasnt at some serious moment been the victim of her mirth-provoking sideglance? But again who hasn't had occasion to pause in appreciation of her splendid generosity? We have found her the hrst to offer a helping hand and the last to withdraw it. The eminence of this in Bert is challenged by her fine integrity. If you've ever avoided an issue, Bert, we haven't observed it! In a word, you who read here-for good scholarship, rollicking humor, good comradeship. and unsurpassed kindliness-we give you, Bert Decker!

In the four short years we have known Ruth, she has been characterized by those distinctive qualities so rarely found in this busy world of ours, Her unfailing desire and equal readiness to help any one of us in our need, her time and ability unselfishly given when real work was needed, have never failed us. Happily, her efforts have not remained unrecognized, for she distinguished herself not only above her classmates, but also above the entire student body in her Sophomore Year. She has stood the test of time well. To Ruth belongs much of the success of our Year Book. Whetlier planning for a prom or for a lecture we could always depend upon her. She seems to possess an unlimited capacity for work. Her scholastic record affords ample proof of her diligence. Her recitations invariably aroused our envy, and her marks our admiration. Ruth possesses a line sense of humor, too, for she can enjoy a joke upon herself as readily as most people do upon others. Her ready laugh, her quick sympathy, and her silent loyalty have established her firmly among us. The confident manner in which her clear voice so often rang out in assemblies never failed to evoke our sincere congratulations. Even more, her fine interpretations of dramatic selections in oral expression classes, have so often made us wish that we might "come through" as ttiumphantly as she. Keep up the good work, Ruth. May your air of gay confidence never forsake you. Sodality 1, 2, 3, 4, Metaphysical Club 31 Social Action Club 43 Le Cercle Fmngair 1, 2, 3, 43 Monsignor Doyle Science Club 4g M. J. B.

So difficult is it to portray Eileen adequately. Our hrst impression was "the blueness of her eyes," and soon we came to know one of the loveliest persons ever to wear the characteristic black and white of Our Lady of the Elms. Actually, Eileen is a fearlessly independent thinker, a vigorous and hard hitting critic of injustice, and a strong woman intellectually. Rarest of all she has been blessed with such a faith as can blossom only in an Irish heart. Instinctively she inspires confidence. Sound judgment and ability to view things in their proper perspective make her advice a much sought luxury. Her kind and gracious manner, and her unfailing poise distinguish her in any group. Her faith in us when even we doubted ourselves has assured us that she is indeed a natural leader. Perhaps Eileen's greatest difficulty is that her car is not as large as her heart. But we've often suspected that remarkable vehicle of boasting Celtic origin, too. It has never been known to hesitate to pass any car that daily sped Chicopee-ward and once it was parked even at the front entrance! The logic of her objections in Philosophy classes would move "The Angelic Doctor" him- self to envy. Her wit makes her imitations realistically funny. Little wonder she can solve even the greatest diHiculties by the process of "reductio ad absurdumf' A colorful conversationalisnf no moments in her company are ever dull. Because she is different in the right way. hers is the charm of individuality. Knowing her, we know true Catholic womanhood.

An uncharitable remark is met with rebuke from Marie in her production of enough good traits to more than outweigh the ones previously exposed. The trite phrase, "appearances are deceiving", was certainly true in Marie's case, for her fellow- students soon discovered that there was a twinkle lurking in her eye, and that her smile was merely awaiting an opportunity to flash out. Her puns are famous throughout the Senior Class, and are noted for their aptness. Yet Maries life is not concerned merely with witty sayings for her in- telligence in regard to her studies may be judged by the fact that she was selected as Editor-in-Chief of the Elmata. The suitability of the selection is attested by the ease with which she has performed the duties of her position. As if these duties added to her classes were not enough to fill her day to overflowing Marie has also been assigned the position of Press Agent for the entire College. She fulfills her several duties with a conscientious attention to detail that is an ever-present example to her classmates. In moral matters as well as material ones, Marie stands out as a beacon-light to show the path of truth to her friendsg for, whether you are seeking the answer to a profound argument in Theology or an apt quotation from the Bible, Marie is able to supply you. Her knowledge of her religion is the envy of all who know her. Yet, extensive as is her theoretical knowledge. it by no means exceeds her practical application of her religious tenets. So, though it is with great regret that we view her departure from these realms of learning, we watch her go with the assurance in our hearts that she will be a grand success in whatever career she may choose, Sodality 1, 2, 5, 4g Metaphysical Club 3, Secretary 53 Social Action Club 45 Monsignor Doyle Science Club -ig Le Cerrle Fmnfait 3, 45 College Press Agentg Editor-in-Chief of Elmata, f26J . 1937 Cs fa ELMATA CX fa RITA ELIZABETH FORD 5 LESTER ST., EAST LONQMIIADOW, Mass.

We never realized she was with us until we made the astounding discovery that she was the girl who always knew the correct answers in our history classes. She was quietly remaining in the background, only to startle us the more with such displays of wit that we would wonder if this was the same Rita or "Fordy" as she became to us. Quiet and unassuming as she was, "Fordy' was always "there" when she was needed. A model student and untiring worker was "Fordy". We will never forget the work she did for the junior Promg and the Elmata owes part of its hnancial success to her systematic canvass of Chicopee. "F0rdy" was one of the few who could handle many things with the utmost ease and accuracy. Without her the Class of '37 would be in need of the sturdy prop she proved to he. The Spanish class would be lost without herg she has earned the right to boast of her Spanish, although it is not in her makeup to do so. For you, Rita, your Class wishes nothing but the best.

Her strength of mind, we, the less fortunately gifted, have found a source of consolation and joy, a redeeming feature in the class. Her power as a logician-firm and lucid, account for the position of president of the Metaphysical and Social Action Clubs which she executed to perfection. As a friend, none of us could find a better. She was always there with a helping hand, eager to do her part, and striving to make each one a little happier by the deed she might do however great or small.

The first impression she gives is a consciousness of the presence of some sort of beauty. Her physical attractiveness is striking, and her graceful and charming manner appeal from the very first moment. Kay is a very friendly and sociable girl. Upon further acquaintance. her keen and clever mind comes into evidence. But more subtle and priceless is the beauty of her soul, for Kay loves everything good, true, and beautiful. Her fondness for poetry and even for composing excellent bits herself attests this. As the prefect of the Sodality, she has endeavored to transmit some of her own religious enthusiasm and zeal to her fellow students. Her love for things holy and saintly is evident to all who know her. Witli the divine assistance, which she invariably seeks in all her undertakings, we know she cannot but gain success. In her four years with us, we have come to regard her as our own special paradox. She is what would be known as a Material- istic ldealist, for would it be an Idealistic Materialist?lg for though Kay appreciates the finer things of life-the beauties of nature, poetry, music, and art-yer this does not prevent her from excelling in the science laboratory, and her practical mind has come in very handy in all school activities, ranging all the way from a basketball game to decorations for the junior prom. Add to this combination, a particularly witty humor, distinctly Germain-ish. and you have some idea of why Kay is one of the most popular girls in the entire student body.

On a September morning three years ago, we returned to school to find Sally calmly and firmly established among us. That was all there was to her coming. She simply was thereg and just as surely she always will be. Her cool and polite appraisal of her classmates was as frank and sincere as Sally herselfg and the acceptance of each was mutual, Sally never was conspicuous in a gathering yet there never was a moment when we were unaware of her presence. Why, even one of our most imperturbable professors has been known to pause in the middle of a sentence and ask wonderingly. 'jWl1C1'C'S Sally?" She possesses a startlingly keen mind. has a well founded opinion upon every subject which presents itself, and most precious of all, has that rare ability to withhold her judgments wisely. The spontaneity of her wit is delightful, and she is a past master at the art of repartee. Her subtle pen can make the most colorless subjects interesting. Were her observations concerning the affairs of mice and men gathered together, they would surely constitute a sparkling piece of literature. Little wonder that we did not hesitate to entrust to Sally the position of Humor-Editor of our annual. True greatness in any held, being ever prone to conceal itself, Sally's natural reticence follows as a matter of course. Serenely and simply she goes through life. If she is troubled, few are aware of it. Yet when we more impulsive souls become embroiled in our various difficulties, Sally is quick to perceive and ready to help. Indeed. this slender little person bears responsibility well. For your sweet unselhshness and your love of wholesome pleasure. for your untiring ambition and loyalty to ideals. for all those things which go to make a fine character, you are dear to us.

Could anyone forget the dy Ann returned? The ovation in the study hall was well-nigh deafening. Somehow we think that this memory picture typifies perfectly her place among her schoolmates-they were for her, to a girl. Ann's ready acquiescence to participate in class activities evidenced always her spirit of good- fellowship. ln action Ann showed more than good-fellowship. Hers is real prowess in the field of sport. One would never make the mistake of accusing Ann of that diligent application to study that forbodes a recluse. But at moments when sharp concentration was necessary, she never failed to evidence the ability that only a keen intellect can produce. That ability flashed out time and again in the presence of a dithcult "Math" problem or the complexities of physics and chemistry. Often we have observed it in class discussion. For Ann's is the mind that can be depended on for sound judgment and commonsense as well as brilliance. It's the judgment and good sense that the world is looking for, Ann, and we fear not for you who possess it. Good luck to you in whatever pathway you pursue, Ann. Those who meet you will have to recognize in you the splendid qualities we have. And as we learned, they too, will love and respect you for them.

From the moment that she bowed in grave and gracious acknowledgment of her first introduction to Our Lady of the Elms, Faculty and student body took Marion to their hearts. Thru the winding course of the years that followed neither has had cause to regret their spontaneous confidence in her. Class-activity, scholarly endeavor, interest in her fellow students, always found Marion equally sincere. With enthusiasm Marion's classmates will tell you of her superior presentation at their first oral expression class, as Freshmen. She has been an outstanding asset to the Dramatic Society and this year mid a dinning ovation of approval was made president of that organization. But the Dramatic Club is only a sample of Marion's splendid capacity for leadership. Time and again have we watched her preside with the admirable ease and simplicity of true gentility. For Marion is the girl who forgets self in her complete absorption in the needs of others, whether listening with sympathetic ear to a woeful tale or conducting a formal meeting. Shes the girl who does her Alma Mater justice in the drawing room as well as the classroom. If we could embody her in three characteristics we would say militant Catholicism, gracious sincerity, and abiding love for the Irish.

She is also a swimmer of great skill. darting through the water with the ease of a trout. As prest- dent, she has steered the Athletic Association through a very successful year. We have never been able to decide just what color Mary's hair is-red. gold. auburn. or what-but no matter by what name you designate it. its beauty cannot be questioned. XVith its deep waves and glittering tints, it is a source of envy to her classmates. If Mary has as much pride in her Alma Mater as she has in het' brother, we will always be able to depend on her loyalty and faith in the years to come. Keep that sense of humor always with you, Mary, as a bulwark against the hard knocks of the world. We sincerely hope that your futuie path-ways will be as happy as your college days seemed to be.

But a little reflection reminds us that the race that produced such gifted people as Chopin, Paderewski and Mme. Curie, also produced Helen. Tho her most genuine triumphs have sounded forth from classroom walls, Helens activities have been many and diverse. The Musical Clubs claim her as a violinist. The newly formed Monsignor Doyle Science Circle elected her as its first president and with splendid efhciency she has conducted the duties of the oihce. Last, but not least, the Year Book Staff names her among its members and is indebted to her for its Art section.

Cool, calm, and collected, Anna is seldom disturbed by the fluctuations of spirit which sway the rest of us. This tall, fair friend of ours pursues her way, carefree and happy. This may account for many of the pranks in the Senior dorm. She expresses the acme of friendship, true .ind lastingg and her willingness to lend a helping hand has made many of our days lighter. Ann is one to whotn we naturally apply the term "good student." Her elhciency in every class has been a constant source of admiration and she is especially adept at languages. Yillietliei translating Caesar's Gallic Campaign or Seneca's "Litterae Morales," Ann gives not only .1 Huent English translation, but can explain the syntax of the Latin itself. Her ability in F1'L'l1Cll has heen recognized by her election to the Presidency of "Le Cercle Francais." Under her able leadership .i new spirit has been infused into this club, which is functioning more actively and elliciently than ever before. Her love for all that is fine and beautiful is aptly manifested by her keen taste for liteixitiire, and especially poetry. Her leisure hours are almost entirely spent in the style of any true hook-lover. With this combination of the assets of a good friend and student. the result must surely be the happiness and the success Ann merits.

In spite of her numerous freckles and pert nose, she had the poise and dignity of a queen. For words of more than live syllables you could always count on Arabelleg and her ruli .1 Duiness to impart information concerning Holy Cross was astounding. XVe could seldom catch Claire in a melancholy mood, and if we happened to be in the vicinity when she was witnessing anything humorous we would be immediately affected by her contagious giggle. However our Arabelle did give us a little worry at Prom times, when she would start her semi-annual dietg and again when she would attempt to prove the strength of her will power. Her slogan 'House work and Home work" will always bring to our minds Arabelle hastening to catch the two or three twenty-hve bus for home. Arabelle on the basketball court and before the Oral Expression class presented quite a contrast. ln a basketball game she displayed that she was capable of gestures, and then some! The Glee Club owes her a vote of thanks both for her vocal support, and for her energetic work as Librarian, which position kept Claire busy fourth period every Monday for four years. As Class Secretary in Freshman year, and as Vice-President in junior and Senior years, she acted with all the dignity becoming these respective ofhces. Arabelle you will claim a great portion of our love and memories.

Peg came to us our Sophomore year, having transferred from Westheld State Teachers Col- lege. We sometimes wonder if her former classmates at Westheld fully realized their loss. At any rate, her cheerful countenance and friendly greeting have made the halls of O. L. E. a more pleasant place to be these past three years. Peg's oratorical ability was made evident by her participation in the Oral Expression Contest of 1956, and she shone, also, as a member of the Debating Club. Competent as a representative of Our Lady of the Elms College, she was sent as one of the delegates to the meeting of the International Federation of Catholic Alumnae, held at Regis College last fall. As a publicity manager for the Elmata and Senior Promenade, we could have made no better choice, for Peg has fulfilled these duties in a most commendable manner. Peg's carefree manner, charming personality, and sincere friendship along with her ability as a speaker have made a lasting and pleasant impression upon us, Now, as the time of farewell draws near, we predict your future, Peg, as one of success and happiness.

Occasionally there were adversaries, but Ev never failed to score at least a moral victory. Her arguments were methodical and fascinating. First, it was the "appeal to the emotions." If these were unsuccessful she followed with "persuasive speech." If necessary-and it often was- the logic of the scholastics, or the rich oratory of a Gaelic emancipator-circumstances dictated the choice-was used. If triumphant, Ev's happy smile proclaimed that "right is might"g if not she found consolation in the fact that "there is justice in heaven." But Ev's path through college life has not been stormy. Her days were filled with laughter- to which she would probably add, "and my nights with study." Ev was always a fine student and balanced her academic career with active participation in all else that should interest a student. Her rich and mellow voice was always welcomed, whether in the double quartet, chanting the sub- lime, or in duet with Bunny, rollicking through the ridiculous. No day of Ev's was complete unless it included her daily jaunt for "titiin". If ever there is a dual personality it is hers. On campus her happy-go-lucky air, her hilarious account of her latest escapade, and her keen appreciation of "class-room classics," all proclaim the dashing Ev. But once she is beyond the confines of the study hall, we see a smartly and tastefully dressed person-Ev at one of our proms. Such franltness and sincerity as are Ev's must carry her far indeed. May you always have the courage of your convictions, Ev, and the strength of character which have been so characteristic of you.

Here we have aconcrete explanation of why the gentlemen are stepping aside in favor of the ladies. And why shouldnt they when a person as willing and as capable as Louise is available. As pilot of our class for the entire four years of our days at the Elms, she has steered our bark through calm and troubled waters alike. l-Ier steady hand and her ready assistance have directed every one of our activities to success. She has faced every problem squarely and openly, solving it to the best of her ability and with the good of the class constantly in mind. As entertainment in her leisure time Louise enjoys good dramas, and loves to spend an evening at a Court Square pro- duction. Her own dramatic ability is far above the average, and has been applauded generously by audiences in our own Auditorium. Her clear voice has rung out eloquently whenever a play, a debate, or an oratorical contest has been in progress. Her gracious and charming manner makes friends of strangers3 and her queenly poise and cultured refinement make her the cynosure of all eyes in any one of our gatherings. ln the informal atmosphere of the study hall, there is no one who contributes as much to the general good humor as Louiseg for she is full of clever, original witticisms, and her own bubbling spirit is transmitted to each of her listeners, We are grateful to her for her capable leadership, enchanted by her lovely voice, charmed by her pleasing personality. and cheered by her genial spirit.

A pair of laughing eyes. a pleasant smile. a hearty greeting, and a warm handclasp are our parting recollections of Dot. These evidences of a radiant geniality are but embellishments of an inner sincerity and a love for all things. An abounding spirit of eagerness and persistence have led her to accomplishments in every phase of college life. Scholastic tasks. however difhcult and fore- boding, were daily surmounted by Dot's earnest and capable endeavors. Prowess on the athletic held and skill as the inspiring leader of our basketball team for three years were exponents of her vigorous health and alert mind. An innate graciousness and an abundance of pleasantness spell the extent of her charm in our Social life. There is yet another characteristic of this winsome lass which merits commemoration gthat of a musical temperament which reaches its fullest expression in the rhythmic pursuits of our Proms and parties and which was climaxed this year in the worthy choice of our Dot as President of the Glee Club. Intimate association with her has made us aware of the fact that sublimating her many gifts is a spiritual beauty and a deeply abiding faith. Because of the embodiment of these varied capabilities. we predict with assurance her singular success in life itself, in the enjoyment of a host of friends, and the fulfillment of desired goals. Thus we greet you, Dot. and as the loving comrade of our joys and woes, we bid you adieu. Sodality 1, 2. 3. 41 Metaphysical Club 3.

Exflvlembers MARION DEsNOYER's scintillating personality, her sparkling sense of humor, as contrasted with the seriousness and depth of her character, were elements which have stamped her image on our minds as a friend we once l-:new and will always remember. GERALDINE ARONSON,S call to the religious life brought joy and sadness into our midst, Sadness, because we were to lose a loyal friend, and joy, because it meant future happiness for Geraldine, and another soldier enlisted in the service of God on earth. Our loss was the Sisters of St. joseph's gain, when Tuiiaiisa Coitm2ii.i.E entered their fold. Her quiet charm added much to the happy course of our Freshman year. Although BEATRICE NIAYER was with us but a short time, we will always remember with delight the amount of spirit beneath that quiet exterior. THERESA SAVAGE was one of our greatest losses. Her gay, infectious laughter still echoes in our ears, as it will echo in the ears of all who hear it. After contributing much to our happiness for a year and a half, JOSEPHINE SKALKO left us during our Sophomore year to concentrate all her efforts on bringing marital happiness to Francis Corriden. EVIELYN I-IENNESSEY exchanged the black uniform for a white one during the Sophomore year. With her charming manner, she will certainly be successful in her nursing career, but our only fear is that the hospital will be filled with young men feign- ing illness. At the end of our Sophomore year, BETTY NICCARTHY deserted us for Business College, but she will long remain in our memories for her yivifying personality, her sense of humor, and her cheery laugh. After having BETTY COLLINS in our ranks for two years, it was hard to get along without her. We missed the daily stimulus of her loyal friendship and keen wit. In her quiet, unassuming way, KATHLEEN O'NEIL joined our ranks Sophomore year. Our joy at receiving her was equalled only by our sadness in losing her during our Senior year. 143, 1957 . - i QR f, ELMATA 6 -Q, Eggiifil 1937 " cx fj ,-...... .... LMA . tial? TAA Class Histor SCENE: A girl's room. TIME: june, 1937. CHARACTERS: Anne College and Bunny Friend. NNE COLLEGE has recently returned to her home town after completing four years at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. On a rainy afternoon in june she and her pal, Bunny Friend, are reminiscing about the letters which Anne has written to Bunny since her first days at college. Bmzuy-Now wait a minute, Anne: let's start at the beginning. Heres the very first letter. QReadingj-"I'm so lonesome. The girls are lovely and the nuns are very kindg but I don't think I can stay here. We had the Mass of the Holy Ghost this morning and classes commenced immediately afterward. I want to go home!" Anne-You know, I always was sorry I wrote that letter because almost at once I began to enjoy myself. First came the party given to us by the Seniors. Wliy, that changed the whole complexion of things! Marion Kennedy was our spokesman that night. Then came class elections-Louise Welch was chosen as Presidentg Josephine Skalko, Vice-Presidentg Claire Reavey, Secretaryg Marion Kennedy, Treasurer. Bunny-Look! You were in a good mood when you wrote this-"We had the Silver Bridge the other afternoon and honestly, Bunny, it was grand! The Sodality knows how to make a bridge party successful. Yesterday we finished the annual retreat and we're feeling so very good. Father Kelly from Boston College was the retreat master and his opening words made a lasting impression on my mind. He said- "It is later than you think!" Well, I guess you were rather late in appreciating your college. Amze-Oh, from then until Thanksgiving vacation things happened so quickly that I forgot to be homesick. We had our first "Parent's Day", then came a grand Halloween party. Right after that I discovered what Shakespeare Institute meant. Dr. Frederick Paulding gave several wonderful interpretations of some Shake- spearean dramas. Bumzy-I remember that. Didn't Father Cusack come from Auriesville to lecture just about that time? Anne-Yes, that's true. Bzzzzzzy-When you were home for Christmas vacation all we heard about was the Christ- mas party and the carols sung by the Glee Club. You also repeated several times that you were just dying for the junior Prom. Say, you waxed eloquent on those two subjects. cfm 1957 S,-,, - rx fa?"- Amir-XVell, they were worth every bit of praise. Those two weeks before the Prom were exciting except for the small matter of mid-year examsg but we took those in our stride. The Prom was perfect! Oh !-Oh! BIIUFIYI-FOI'iQ6lI your "ohing" and listen to this-"The great Father Bernard Hubbard came to the Elms. and gave the most interesting lecture I have ever heard." Further on you wrote-"The Musical Clubs and Dramatic Society performed the other night. and our classmates who participated were a real pride to the Freshmen." .-Irma-Soon after that we were prouder than ever when Louise Welcli and Evelyn Hennessey represented our class in the annual Oratorical Contest. They were splendid! Bnmzgi-Evidently you didnt have time to write any more letters that year. Aim:-Time! Didnt I tell you about our initiation into the famous Commencement week rehearsals? Blllifij-EYES. indeed! I sympathized with you for exactly two hours on just that subject. .firms-Qdreamily'j-But the activities were glorious. and that Senior Prom seemed just about as good as the junior Prom. Miss O'Reilly received the Via Veritatis medal that year. B!l7F'f-I-SAY! XY'e covered the high-lights of your Freshman year in short order. Let's ste what comes next. SOPHOMORE YEAR Bfnmgi-Here's the first letter I received from you Sophomore year. fReadirigj-"It seems good to know the ropes this year. and to be just a little superior to the Freshmen. The Freshmen are very nice. but they come from very funny places. Did you ever hear of Leominster. Uxbridge or Hadley?" Amie-Oli yes. I remember hearing those names for the first time the night of the Freshmen party. XY'e had a perfect time that night. Dmzffig-Here's some more of the same letter-freadingj-"Class elections were held today. Louise Vfelch is President. Betty Collins. Vice-Presidentg Dorothy Wildman, Secretary: Marian Kennedy. Treasurer." -'17I7i6+Tl1CD came retreat. Father Dolan was retreat master that year. Wings were sprouting from most of us by the fourth day. Bznmvi-Here's a letter telling about the Halloween party you had. ,lime-Oh yes-Dot W'ildman represented our class by taking the prize for the best looking costume. I remember the home-made doughnuts we had. They certainly disappeared fast! And then-the next day Wu Cap and Gown Sunday, and the Seniors began the last of their college days. Emmy-Heres a letter saying that Dr. Paulding arrived. Anne-Yes. he was with us for a week and again we learned to appreciate more fully the works of Shakespeare. I 46 J 1937 -fic f7 --L-way? CX f? Bumly-After that things seem to have quieted down for awhile. QPicking up another letter and readingj "Our otiicial timekeepers, Rita Ford and Betty Hannigan, are keeping us informed of the days, the hours and the minutes until the Thanksgiving vacation. I've had my bag packed for a week." Anne-finterruptingj-It's funny how quickly we could pack a bag. and yet how long it took us to unpack one. Bunny-Then, all too soon, your Thanksgiving vacation was over. and I saw you dash- ing off to catch the train to Springfield. Amie-Yes, and shortly after we arrived, we began cramming for exams: but they were soon in the past and we began planning for the Christmas party. Bznmy-That took place the night before you came home. didn't it? Amze-That's right. And again it stands out in my mind as the big event of the year. The Glee Club certainly deserved credit for their grand rendition of all our favorite Christmas carols, Bzmuy-And then came Christmas vacation, and you were home for two weeks. Anne-After we returned Father Hubbard lectured for us at the Auditorium in Spring- field, and a few days later he honored us with a private lecture at the college. Bunny-Shortly after that Lent began. and you wrote me about the rehearsals that were beginning for your Passion Play-"Pilates Daughter." Amie-Yes, that was presented Palm Sunday, and before eight o'clock there was istand- ing room only." It was a pleasing financial as well as spiritual success. Bunny-Easter Vacation came and went, and once more I saw you board the train for Chicopee. Anne-Did I write you about the Oratorical contest? XVe were represented by three members of our class-Louise Welch, Catherine Germain, and Betty McCarthy. Bunny-Yes, and he-re's a letter about Marys Day. That was the day you dedicated your new shrine of the Blessed Virgin. Amze-That same day we had a Mother and Daughter tea. The Fashion Show was presented as the main feature of the afternoon. Several of the girls were models. Bunny-Shortly after, came those finals you wrote about so much. Anne-As usual we worried a great deal about themg but we all pulled throughAmore or less. Then came the best week in the yearACommencement week. Miss Sophie del Valle from Mexico was the Veritatis medalist of that year. All too soon we bade goodbye to the new alumnae, and we returned home-members of the junior Class. JUNIOR YEAR Anne-I don't need any letter to remind me of the third year. jolly juniors! It was a grand and glorious feeling. I 47 J fX f, F Emu ---. - CN f? Bznmy-Let me refresh your memory! 0h yes, here's your first epistle-"Just finished electing class officers. Louise Welcli was elected President, Clarie Reavey, Vice- President, Mary Lalor, Secretary, and Bernardine Conaty, Treasurer." Afzzze-Wliy, Bunny, it was soon afterwards that our beloved Vice-President of the College died. That year we made a beautiful retreat under the guidance of the late Father Tivnan. May God rest their souls. Bfzmzy-Tliis letter is very worthy of your great descriptive abilities4"Through rain and snow and sleet we marched to the chapel for the Cap and Gown services." Whyf, it's almost poetical. Amie'-lt was more than thatAit was freezing fwell almostj but that didn't keep us from appreciating the joyousness and solemnity of the occasion. BIHZIIJ' freadingj f!'I'll be home within two days for Christmas vacation, but before that we will have our party. Must dash out now and buy my gift for the tree, so good-bye until I see you." Certainly, junior year made you breezy, even in your letter writing. Amie-Maybe it was a good thing because we breezed right through our mid-years although we were knee-deep in Prom preparations. I can close my eyes and see every detail of those preparationsethe ladders, notes, instruments, finding glue in the most unexpected places, and always looking for something or other. BIlI?l7.j'fAll you ever said to me was-"Oh, it was the grandest Prom that the gym will ever see!" Amie-Every word was true. Didn't I write you a lengthy letter about the Valentine party, which was given soon after the Prom? That was the night the glamour of former glory was doomed to fade. B111z1zy Here's a very dramatic description of the flood-"Boiled water, trips to the tower, most of the day students absent! Bunny, I was so afraid that something was going to happen." It did, dear, but the Elms was fortunate. Anne fabstractlyj--Yes-yes--. I was just thinking that we started rehearsals for "Pilates Daughter" at that time. We made new costumes that year, and I'll never forget the intricate designs. The play proved to be just as successful as the former performances. Bllllllj'-TlllS letter winds up your Junior year-"Exams are ended! We are preparing for Commencement and in the meantime were having a good time. Yesterday the juniors and Seniors were the guests of Reverend Mother john Berchman's at Mount Marie. It was a perfect day in every respect-a red letter day in my college calendar." Am1eAEverything about that year was perfect. Mrs. McGoldrick was the Via Veritatis medalist, and Dr. john R. Rooney was named our new Vice-President. Bunny-Pardon the interruption-"The juniors have become Seniors and next year at this time we will be sorry that Commencement is so nearf, 1937 ex fa 4485 FLW-TA 6 fa SENIOR YEAR Anne fpicking up a letterj-September, Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-Six-the begin- ning of the end! This was written a few days after I arrived at Our Lady of the Elms for my Senior year. Let's see freadingj-"Classes started September eighteenth with the Mass of the Holy Ghost in the morning. Class ofiicers were elected Tuesday-Louise Welch is again President of the Class. She has led our class for three years and she is a capable and efficient leader. Claire Reavey and Bernardine Conaty are Vice-President and Treasurer respectively. Kay King is the Secretary." Bunny-Here's your letter about .Elms Night. You seemed to have enjoyed it immensely. Anne--Yes, especially so, because it was the first time we had gathered with our new Vice-President, Dr. Rooney. Bznmy-Retreat was later that year, wasn't it? Amee-Yes, that was the year the chapel was tedecorated. For weeks we dodged staging and falling plaster, but finally the redecorating was finished and we had a beautiful new chapel. Bzmny-Dr. Paulding returned that year, didn't he? Amee-Yes, once more, he returned to dramatize in his own inimitable way the "Mer- chant of Venice." And then leaving Shakespeare, he gave us dramatizations of other workse-the two outstanding being Rostands "Cyrano de Bergerac" and Sheridan's "School for Scandal." Bznzny-I-Iere's the letter that you wrote me about your trip to the Mission Exhibit. I enjoyed reading about the various orders of priests and nuns that are doing such good work in the missions. Amare-Yes, that was a big surprise given to us by Reverend Mother. The Mission Exhibit was very interesting. I think we sang every song we ever knew on the ride back from Worcester to Springfield. I'll always remember that day as one of the best of my college days. Bzzmzy fpicking up a letterj-Once again you wrote to me of Cap and Gown Sunday, and this time it was your own Cap and Gown Sunday. Amie-Yes, it was a lovely day but a sad reminder that our days at O. L. E. were drawing to a close. Bunny-Then, again Thanksgiving vacation came and went. Anne-Yes, and during the vacation I went to the Senior Dance at the Hotel Bridgway. Bumzy-That was for the benefit of the Elmata, wasn't it? Anne-Yes, and thanks to the hard work and co-operation of the co-chairmen, Roberta Decker and Mary Lalor, the dance was a grand success. Bunny-This year there didn't seem to be much time between your Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations. 1491 1957 1 4, CN 4 6 Hmm .. . Mm - Amze-No, there wasn't. The annual Christmas patty came very soon after we returned from Thanksgiving vacation, and soon we were home again. Bunny fpicking up a letterj-Heres a letter you wrote after Christmas vacation-Qread- ingj-"We're having a drive right now to raise money for our yearbook. We had a beano game a few nights ago, and although the profits were rather small, all who were there enjoyed themselves. Today we took over the Cafeteria for the day. We donated and sold our own food. The underclassmen gave us hne support which helped make it the success that it wasfl Anne-Let's see. We presented "Pilates Daughter" again that year and two days later the Seniors at last obtained the coveted Senior privilege and set out for home a day before the underclassmen. After Easter the days were filled with rehearsals and various events. Mary's Day was as lovely as ever and the Mother and Daughter tea was a climax to agperfect day. Bunny-Here's a letter you wrote me shortly before commencement week-freadingj- "The Oratorical Contest is to be held soon. Louise Welch and Bernardine Conaty have been chosen to represent our class. The Public Debate is scheduled for Mon- day. The question for debate is: Resolved that the Supreme Court of the United States should be revised.

Let's see, first our class play-"The Cradle Song"-a fine dramatization of a fine play. After that, our picnic with the juniors and then last but not least-the night of nights-the Senior Prom! Sweet music, soft lights and a tropical setting! What more could one ask for? But all too soon our College days were over. The great moment of graduation came and at last we had our coveted degrees.

Dorothy Wildman wills her "early morning radio programs" t'o Florence Dunn, so that she may start the day with music.

Dr. Rooney IME has given us but a few short months to know our new Vice-President. Yet, I in this brief interval, we have come to love and revere him. He has proven in very deed the kind and gentle priest he appeared to be when we caught our first glimpse of him at last year's Commencement. Eagerly we had awaited the announce- ment of the successor of our late beloved Monsignor Doyle. When our revered Bishop and President introduced Dr. Rooney, each and every one of us sincerely felt that Our Lady of the Elms was indeed fortunate to have secured the leadership of such a com' petent director. Dr. Rooney was born in Pittsfield, was educated in the Pittsfield schools, and St. Charles College, Cantonsville, Md., pursuing his priestly studies at St. Marys Semi- nary, Baltimore, and the Catholic University, Wzlshington, D. C. Here he received the degrees of A. M., S. T. B., and Ph. D. He was ordained in Baltimore Cathedral, May, 1916, by the late Cardinal Gibbons. After ordination, he was appointed to parish duties at St. Bernard's, Fitchburg, by the late Bishop Beaven. In 1924, Dr. Rooney was named Professor of Education at the Catholic University of America, where he taught for nine years. - In 1933, he returned to the Springfield Diocese as Pastor of All Saints at Ware, Mass. On june 7, 1936, his new position as Vice-President of the College was announced by Bishop O'Leary. He also takes Monsignor Doyle's place as Pastor of St. Patricks in Chicopee Falls, and as Diocesan Supervisor of Schools. As our Senior Year is drawing to a close, we of '37 deeply regret that we cannot remain longer as students under his gentle guidance. He has held up to us his ideal Elms girl. He has taught us what she who wishes to attain this ideal must do. It is our sincere desire that we, his first graduating class, may go forth from our Alma Mater determined to preserve forever our noble heritage of Catholic culture. For his kindness and sympathetic attention to our problems, we are deeply grateful. May God grant Dr. Rooney many years in office, and may His blessing be forever upon him and his work at Our Lady of the Elms. MARIE B. FOLEY.

VVe of '37 will ever remember Sr. Mary Baptista as the kindly nun who greeted us when we, as timid Freshmen, matriculated at Our Lady of the Elms. Throughout our Freshman year, she was always at hand to help us in our difficulties. However, we were to enjoy her gentle supervision for a short time only, for on returning from our Christmas vacation during our Sophomore year we found that illness had forced her to retire from office. Hopefully, but in vain, we watched for her return. Once again only were we to enjoy her presence. On that memorable visit to Mount Marie a year later, how we thrilled at her thoughtful recognition of each and every one of us! Not one had she forgotten. It was in mid-summer following that God called this noble soul to her eternal revvard. SL hdary Bapnsmispentrnany yearsin the held of Cathohc educanong and not a small proportion of the "many" was passed at Our Lady of the Elms. As teacher in the Academy, as Supervisor of Schools in the Springfield diocese, and as Dean of the College of Our Lady, she has been an integral part of our Alma Mater from the time of its small beginnings up to the present. Not a graduate but remembers and values her association with O. L. E. One of the earliest graduates from the academy expresses well the sentiments of all whom she trained as teachers: " 'Sister Baptisra is deadl' This sorrowful message brought grief to the hearts of those ahunnae vdmme undergraduate days spanned the eady years of the acadennh-40 whom Sister Baptisra was teacher, counsellor, and friend. In those days, Sister had charge of training the pupil-teachers,-then an untried experiment in Catholic Education in our diocese, and her courses in psychology and pedagogy are still a part of the tradi- tion of the Elms. In addition to the sharing of her intellectual gifts, associations with Sister Baptisra, for the pioneer members of the Alumnae, are inseparable from the Commencement Reunions at our Alma Mater where visits with Sister Baptisra were cherished as happy interludes in the busy activities of life. "Pride in the Academy's achievements that only the years can bring to fruition, is tempered with regret at the passing of those who contributed much in inspiration and scholarship to the development of the school. The Elms is young enough to have maintained a degree of continuity with the past in her faculty, but is old enough to have suffered losses in her leaders that are inevitable with the passing years. Sister Baptisra was a member of the faculty in the first years of the Academy's existence. Her prudence and kindliness exerted upon the character and lives of the young women under her care an influence that is far reaching. With her high standards, and with her love C561 - 1937 CN f? '-'r' Q for beauty and goodness, she has enriched the countless lives that have come under her guidance. "May the fruits of her noble life and work live on as long as Our Lady of the Elms serves youth, seeks beauty and goodness, and loves God." From the ranks of those who know her as a beloved supervisor, comes this tribute: "Perhaps no phase of her life work has left happier memories of Sr. Mary Baptista than her class room visits as supervisor. The gloom attached to the official significance of such visits was dispelled by the sunshine of her gracious personality. A friendly comment, a kindly inquiry for the absent, a gentle smile, and mutual understanding prevailed. With delicate skill she drew the best from each childg even the indifferent student, sensing her sympathy, responded to her tactful leadings, and drew from the experience new self-respect. Able at all times to draw from the field of literature, both sacred and profane, illustrations that enhanced and clarified a subject under discussion, she simply and unobtrusively shed the light of spiritual beauty about the most common- place subject matter. As a supervisor Sr. Mary Baptista was indeed inspirational in the class room to teacher and pupilf' "When the College opened," continues a member of the Charter Class, "Sister Baptista was again doing pioneer work. We knew her as a teacher, and we, who love the classics today, do so because Sister Baptista showed us their worth. My text of Horace will always be one of my treasuresg for its lines are intertwined with her valued commentations, We knew her as our Dean, and as we look back from our few years of contact with the world, we appreciate fully her tactful surmounting of the difficulties of her position. Ever competent, always wise in counsel, and sympathetic in understanding, she stands out in the memory of our days at the Elms. Worn out in the service of our beloved Alma Mater, she has gone to her reward-another of the great pioneers who have blazed the trail leading to new and fairer fields." We, the Class of '37, echo the sentiments of our predecessors. In her varied fields of labor our beloved Sister Dean touched many lives, and she touchd none which she did not adorn. May her memory stay with us always! MARIE B. FOLEY. 1957 W - . fN '9 ESTHER C. BARNES N. Brookfield, MaSS. HELEN A. BENARD Springfield, Mass. lVilLDRED M. CLARKE Springfield, Mass.

IDXVYER Trea.mrer,' Doaoruv C. ZIELINSKI FTER three years of close contact with our successors we can speak with authority as to their ability to fill our place. In drama this ability has been especially pronounced. Many of the most important roles in every presentation of "Pilate's Daughter" since its inception have been assumed by the Juniors. The Musical Clubs would be utterly lost without the members of this class while these same juniors have starred as soloists in every concert that has been given under the sponsorship of these clubs. With such a musical background is it any wonder that their htst Prom should be such a glowing success? The scene from the Southland, complete with cotton fields, darkies, and meeting-house was most appropriately decorated in green and silver, their class colors. But do not think that originality was the only admirable feature that con- tributed to the success of the Prom. Its practicality is attested by the fact that it not only received many a favourable comment as a social affair but that it was also a financial success. The loyalty of these juniors has led them to our support in every endeavor with a zeal that has often carried them far beyond the limits of our expectations. So, we proceed on our way confident that these same admirable qualities will lead them to take our place in the best possible manner. 1619 1957 -ia ,E 6E:- -if Cx f? UHIOI' RITA I.

The song you sang to us, dear Sisters, will ring in our ears and live in our hearts recalling memories fond and dear. May you think of and pray for us often in the years to come, and may it be your good fortune to have as loyal a class of younger sisters as we found you to be. Something on the order of the immortal Tiny Tim, and with as much fervor, we say-God bless you every one. 4659 1957 ,- fN 172-T" Emu CN '49 Sophomore Diredtor JOSEPHINE R.

CLANCY UR first encounter with the class of 1940 was at the Freshman reception.- vvherein we proved that receptions need not be formal affairs. They were wise even then, for they were submissive in the face of overpowering Qwe hope not overbearing, forces. The good sportsmanship they demonstrated. excited our admira- tion, and made it clear that these "frosh" of ours certainly could "take it." By the time our next party rolled around, their meekness was history: for they made as much noise. if not more, than the rest of us with their clever musical parodies and class songs. Scholastically, they are a credit to O. L. E. The finesse with which they managed their own exclusive Physics assembly, made us wonder that traditionally unsophisticated underclassmen could possess so much poise. But, as we have said. they are wise for their tender years. 'Tis whispered too. that they burn the midnight oil habitually-"and they are only 'frosh '." XVe confess that it took us much longer to learn that the proverbial midnight oil was the "lamp of experi- ence" by which our feet were to be guided. We envy you a lot "frosh," what has been for us. is yet to be for you. Our College is still very young. It's future depends so much upon what you, its underclassmen. choose to make it. You are our last personal contact with the student body. In your hands we leave the responsibility of making the dreams of our founders come true. May Our Lady of The Elms guide you as lovingly in the future as she has guided us in the past. 1937 '69, . - tx f, fX E1-M-ATA f'D Freshman Direcftor VIRGINIA A. ADAMS Housatonic KATHERINE F.

The statue of Our Lady with outstretched arms, seemed to welcome us when we first entered the campus of Our Lady of the Elms. The Sodality soon after our entrance, with sincere welcome invited us to share in its devotion to Our Lady. Influenced at once by the enthusiasm of our predecessors, we soon became acquainted with all the activities of the society. Their spirit of fervor was manifest in their spiritual lives, enriched as they were by the Spiritual Meetings held on the First Friday of each month, and in their active lives by a greater interest in Catholic literature and more intimate contact with the mission helds. Many a happy moment we spent in the social hour before each Major Meeting, for real pleasure was found in the various entertainments provided by the sodalists themselves. Thoughts of these social hours will often bring, in our moments of reminiscence, smiles to our lips. The crowning event of the year is the reception into the Sodality which takes place in May, Mary's own month. Each candi- date receives Mary's Medal, the pledge of her loyalty to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Fortunate were we to be placed under the patronage of Our Blessed Mother, and of St. Therese, Little Flower of jesus. Each succeeding year has served to intensify our zeal and loyalty as sodalists and true children of Mary. To our Reverend Director, Reverend Alfred Lane, whose zealous interest and sincere co-operation in every undertaking of the Sodality, has been our inspiration, and to our Sister Directress, we are grateful. Through the influence of their spirit of generosity we have realized more truly the meaning of true devotion to Mary. With sadness, yet with hearts filled with many happy memories we bid farewell, as we prepare to face the broader world before us, where we shall continue our work under Marys inspiration and guidance. We now lovingly entrust the future of the Sodality to her generous and enthusiastic members, we beg Our Lady to assist and guide each one, and keep them ever 'neath her spotless mantle of blue. 1725 ,C-, 1937 CN f?

HALLEIN Serremry: MARIE B. FOLEY Serremry: DOROTHY E. VUILDM.-KN INCE our earliest days at Our Lady of the Elms the subject of Philosophy has excited our keenest interest. As Freshmen and Sophomores, we gazed in expectant awe at the philosophical subjects listed on the schedule of studies in the junior- Senior Study Hall, We spent much time wondering what these magic words held in store for us. As juniors, our curiosity was satisfied, our expectations happily gratified. As the days rolled on, we found ourselves more and more absorbed in this very delightful science. Under the able direction of our Professor, we organized our first Philosophy Club. At each meeting, members of the class participated in "Circles," in which we defended our theses and refuted our adversaries. On March seventh, we commemorated the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas by a Philosophy Assembly. Three members of our class defended the thesis in Ontology "The Concept of Being with Relation to Its lnferiors Is Analogous with the Analogy of Intrinsic Attribution." We enjoyed the expressions of admiring wonder and surprise on the faces of our under classmates as much as the present Seniors enjoyed our bewilder- ment last year. As Seniors, we called our Philosophy Club "The Social Action Club." As we were delving into the secrets of the important branch of Philosophy known as Psychology we performed tests in Experimental Psychology wherein we observed many striking phenom- ena heretofore unknown to us. This year, too, in honor of our great Patron, St. Thomas Aquinas we participated in the Philosophy Assembly. Those who represented the class spoke on "The Psychology of St. Thomas Aquinas," "Scholastic Psychology and Modern Discoveries in Experimental Psychology," and "Contemporary Schools of Psychology." Our Club has held its last meeting, but it will not be last in our memory. XVe shall remember these gatherings, representative of that great science, and we shall ever be grateful to the faculty of our College for including them in our program of studies. We have penetrated far beyond the ken of natural science, we have delved into the lore of metaphysics, but, far more important than this, we have acquired a knowledge of that which will remain forever with us as guardian of our Faith and Morals, true Catholic Philosophy. 1755 1937 fx f? 1937 fa "-' - -Ii ex .- - Ewa CN f? The Musical Clubs NDER the guidance of the Rev. Directoress of Music, the Musical Clubs are concluding this year with their usual success. With tireless effort and skill, Sister has led them along the pathway to proficiency and ease in the use of this "language of heaven." In all their presentations, assisted by their talents, the patient practice and preparation of the Musical Clubs evidenced itself. These occasions range from the lovely blending of instrument and voice at the Christmas and Spring Concerts to the splendidly planned musical effects in the back- ground of our major dramatic effort, "Pilates Daughter." A program of appropriate melody pleases the ear of the audience between the acts. Cine of the most effective moments of this presentation is captured by the sweetly harmonized phrases of a "I.audate" as the imprisoned Christian Woinen praise this new found God. But were we to limit ourselves to scheduled occasions, we would fall short indeed of crediting the Musical Clubs with the momentous part they play in both our private and public life at the Elms. Gatherings, whether of a sacred mien in chapel, or a formal or a gay one at school, always turn to the Musical Clubs for aid in program assemblage. For all are richly deepened or enlivened by the trained musical and vocal contributions of the Musical Clubs. Your talents and efforts, members of the Musical Clubs, have afforded us many hcurs of delightful and charming music. We, the members of the graduating class, render you the deep appreciation you and your able Rev. Directress so well deserve. In your future activities, may your spirit of cooperation and interest bring you ever greater laurels of achievement. f 77 1957 l ,. tx fa ELMATA 4f---11 4? """"- V---..g. ' '-::iQbx 1937 fa L - ....

At the same time, they had the added honor of being the first recipients of the annual award given by Reverend Jeremiah A. Riordan. Our class. too, shared in the first public debate held outside the College. The officers of the society this past year have proved most competent in managing the affairs of the club, and deserve much praise for their work. Logical thinking, speaking. arguing, and acting are admirable characteristics in mv individual. In this respect, the M. B.

CARMEN O, PADILLA E have regretted that time has not permitted many meetings of this friendly club, for some of the most pleasant memories of the Spanish students are of spirited gatherings of the Corte Castellana. This year we have been glad to welcome an exceptionally large number of new members from each of the three classes of under- graduates. This shows the growing popularity of the Spanish language, and the interest in the fascinating country of Spain. Due to present unfortunate conditions in Spain many of the famous old buildings and churches have been destroyed. Ilenceforth the glory of Spain must remain solely in her literature and in the written accounts of the beauty and culture that once belonged to Spain. Our very successful Spanish Assembly created great interest even among those who do not know a word of Spanish In the form of a radio broadcast a number of speakers gave short discourses on the masters of Spanish literature. The students joined in the singing of well-known English songs translated into Spanish for the occasion. The announcer cleverly disclosed unusual facts in Spanish history, culture, and education which are little-known but very interesting. Connected with the Assembly was a display of the great masterpieces of the principal Spanish artists. The enthusiasm and interest shown in these affairs prove how deeply the romance and intrigue that belong to Spain affect all. 4833 1957 - U a CN '7 ELMP-TA fx f?

Our eflicient otiicers have provided for us many interesting and enlightening meetings. A discussion of current events fulfilled a twofold purpose, for it familiarized the girls with present-day happen- ings and, what is more important, it gave them initiative in carrying on a conversation in French. Plays in French dialogue were entertaining and instructive to the members. In the assembly program, the question for debate was "La litti-rature francaise du dix- septieme siecle est superieure at la litterature anglaise du meme sieclef' The victorious negative side was upheld by members of the Senior and Sophomore classes, while mem- bers of the junior and Freshman classes ably defended the affirmative side. However, it is to our capable Sister Directress that Le Cercle Francais owes its success. We deeply appreciate her tireless efforts in our behalf. 1957 W - fx 'U 'i'l ELMATA 6 --- 1937 -is fa .--P .E - ELMATA i CN fj Dramatic Club Prerit!enf,- MARIKDN R.

True, we have shone forth annually in a splendid dramatic production, but our task has been even greater, for we have planned our programs with an eye to the future. Thus, we have attempted to furnish the laboratory for "the aft of assuming social responsibility easily." In our meetings we have shown the neces- sity and means of acquiring poise, whether the occasion be an informal social gathering or the public stage. Our members have given us the advantages of their experiences and research in connection with current successes, and developments in the theatre world, and we have endeavored to familiarize ourselves with stage-technique. Since Freshman days, we, as a class, have always been closely associated with the successes of the club. Our dramatic debut occurred during the One-Act Play Tourna- ment, when "My Aunt From California" delighted the school with her dual personality, and the ingenuity and imaginative faculties of our members were given full play-as the scenery testified. Our victory was moral but we were delighted with ourselves, and suspect that our audience was, too. That year was closed in a truly worthy manner by the presentation of Bulwer-Lytton's famous "Richelieu," in which we were represented. The annual play tournament was dispensed with in our second year, for we under- took the presentation of "Pilates Daughter," by Rev. Fr. Kenzel. Many fine roles were well played by our members in this drama, and the success of it was proven by the fact that the play was repeated by popular demand several weeks later. junior year saw us rollicking forth in a one act "mellerdrammer," wherein Bellah Bashful and Andy Evergreen thrilled us with their romantic proof that "love conquers all." However, our chief claim to fame presented itself in the second production of "Pilates Daughter," when the splendid role of "Afra" was entrusted to the capable hands of Louise Welch. In this, our last year, the club again undertook the presentation of "Pilates Daugh- ter" under the sponsorship of the College, and once more Louise presented a fine por- trayal of the Sorceress of Rome. Others of our class who will be remembered for their excellent performances were Bunny Conaty, Ruth Dunleavy, Kay Germain, Marion Kennedy and Ev. Welch. Here, too, we would like to express a word of gratitude to our Sister Directresses whose talents have been unselfishly spent in our behalf. Our last act is over. We have played our parts well in the Land of Make-Believe, and we do not fear to assume our roles in the realms of reality. It is with true regret that we leave our trials and triumphs to future Thespians. So, with the confidence of a task well done, we bow to the final curtain. f 87 I 1937 -.

Under the guidance of our capable directress Miss Katherine Long, we learned to derive the full value from the all too short periods spent with her in the gymnasium, on the tennis court, on our improvised baseball diamond, or in the pool at the Boyis Club. We were Miss Longs first class here at O. L. E., and we have always felt that this was an honor. Her friendship is one that each of us will cherish and prize, and our ideals of good sportsmanship we owe to her example and training. The Athletic Association has gone far since we were meek and humble Freshmen. The tournaments have become almost as important as any curricular activity. The game with the Alumnae is becoming an annual basketball treat. The swimming classes begin in our junior Year are becoming ever more popular and interesting. The new idea introduced in our Senior Year of holding the meetings in the evening proved a great success. At these meetings, entertainment of a high and hilarious degree was in vogue. The refreshments served also did much in the way of increasing the attendance. These meetings brought to light hitherto unknown members, and helped to inflate our treasury. Many students learned the fundamentals of tennis by joining the A. A. By becom- ing an active member, the opportunity was given to keep physically fit. Because of the willingness of our generous directress to sacrifice her afternoons for our instruction, those who had always hoped to, but who had never had the chance, learned to swim. As Seniors we could leave no kinder wish to the undergraduates than that they may learn the value of the Athletic Association, and may enjoy and treasure the direction and friendly interest of their directress, who has made Athletics here at O. L. E. better than the best, and who has implanted in every athlete the perennial seed of sports- manship. 1893 1937 s -T - - cs A ?

From the opening months of each scholastic year, we have looked forward in joyful anticipation to the coming of this noted actor and lecturer. His excellent selection of the best in literature as subject matter for discussion has made each series of lectures an outstanding event. Dr. Paulding has given us an ever deepening appreciation of the excellent art of dramatization, and a deeper insight into the human nature so cleverly portrayed by the pen of the dramatist. We shall remember through all the years to come the keen enjoyment which we derived from his clever presentation of the comedyg but more especially shall we keep in memory his magnificent presentation of the worlds great tragedies.

The party was in charge of the Seniors, with the juniors escorting their sister class. After refreshments had been served and the formal welcome tendered by the upperclassmen, all adjourned to the gym. Here the Freshmen answered questions put by members of the committee in charge, and performed calisthenics to the intense amusement of the rest of the student body. Presentation of prizes to the most versatile of the Freshmen and general dancing ended one of the most enjoyable social events of the year. The Halloween Fart 9' ALLOWEEN was fittingly observed here at the college by an entertainment given, ,H in honor of the Seniors, by their sister-class, the Sophomores. The entire affair i was under the guidance of the Sophomore class-president, Edna Lunney. Assist- ing her, were Mary Fogarty, who was in charge of the decorations, Frances Mulholland and May Mahoney, who planned the entertainment, Margaret Fitzpatrick, who was in charge of the refreshments, and Mary Larkin, who selected the favors given to the Seniors. The gymnasium was attractively decorated to represent a barn yard, the floor of which was plentifully strewn with hay. Each girl was attired in a costume of her own choice, and competition was keen for the various prizes which were awarded. Games were enjoyed, and before the evening ended, we had our fill of cider and doughnuts. The end of the party came, and we all retired after another evening of fun and entertainment. 1943 ,..... 1937 CN f7 - .

ON DEALING WITH FRosH E are glad to learn, O juniors and Sophomores, that you live on a friendly footing with the lower class. You may say: "They are only Frosh." Ah, but they are also fellow-sufferers. "They are only Frosh." Ah, but they are also comrades-in-arms. And remember fortune has the same power over all of you. And so we pity those colleges where upperclassmen refuse to associate with the Frosh. They say that there the Frosh are not even allowed to talk face to face with more advanced students, although they certainly talk about them among themselves. Yea, even outside those learned realms. It is from such idiocy as this that the proverb came: "Pride goeth before a fall." Remember that those whom you call Frosh came from the same hamlets as your- self, breathe the same air fusually coldj, have the same dreams that you once had, and will suffer the same disillusionment. Therefore, this is our advice. Treat these Frosh as you desire to have the Seniors treat you. Be kind to them, advise them, yea, even at times warn them from your vast store of wisdom, of the pitfalls that lie in their paths. And now you may question: "Why should we be kind to these Frosh?" This practical hint that we have learned from experience may impress you. "Someday you may need the parents of that Frosh whom you scorn today to patronize your Prom, or perhaps one of her relatives will add a much needed advertisement to your Year Book." So, in your turn patronize that Frosh, attempt to add to her store of knowledge, and even go so far as to unbend enough to make her feel that at least she is tolerated, if not welcomed with open arms. -Farewell. II. ON THE PROPER USE or TIME Do this, our Sister Classes, the time that up to now you have squandered on study or wasted in memorizing, collect and save. If you were going to graduate tomorrow, what time would you give to yourself? You would not rack your brains for hours over that assignment or those chapters, would you? Place some value on your time. Remember the blue books hold whatever time is past except the record that your parents receive each semester. Relax! Remember that only that part of your time is yours that you spend profitably. The greatest foolishness of mortals is that they count as of profit the hours that they waste in a dozen scurrying attempts at vain study. You will ask, perchance, what has happened to us that we give you such advice. After deep pondering this thought came to us-we cannot recover what we have lost f 99 J 1937 CN 6 Z - as as as S- ELMATA -- --1 tx 4?- but we can advise you as to what you are losing, and how, and in what way. In so short an epistle we cannot give the reasons for our advice, but it has happened to us, as happens to many, that we are reduced to a poverty of time through no fault of our own. Your elders may say: "You are not poor if you are satisfied with what you have." But save yourself from this evil and begin in good time. Not only the least of your time remains in the end but even the worst-no time at all. -Fai'eu'ell. III. ON THE FEAR OF EXPULSION Persevere as you have begun and diligently, by which action you may enjoy longer a composed spirit. Then you may keep your memories in joy, as much as you are able to feel jcy when you put on the gown of seniority and are led to graduationg you may even hope for better marks when you discard your childish fears and console yourself with true philosophy. For these are not only the fears of childhood but even of infancy. Many miserable students fluctuate between fear of expulsion and the miseries of studying, and wish to pass yet know not how. No one can receive knowledge in diverse studies unless they are of :superior mentality. So we encourage you to struggle against this fear and be not ashamed of that which may befall even the most talented, namely, failure in one or more subjects. As we put an end to this letter receive this thought which pleased us most today: "Even you, by the law of averages cannot fail in all your studies, even under the new marking system." -Fai'eu'ell. IV. PHILOSOPHY, THE Goins OF STUDENTS We know, Underclassmen, that you will agree that one cannot live a happy life without some study. However we hope to convince you that no study is of any use without philosophy. Philosophy, we are told, builds up our minds, rules our actions, and tells us what should be avoided. It sits at the helm and directs our course through all our flounderings in the maze of Liberal Arts. You may say: "What is the good of philosophy if the faculty rules our lives? Certainly their laws cannot be changed, not can we reconcile our movements to those rules." We answer thus: "Even if all these things are true you ought to study philosophy. For philosophy will encourage you that on the one hand you may obey the faculty freely and on the other hand you may despise freedom." But let us not get caught in a discussion as to whether you should obey the dictates of your superiors or whether you should obey the dictates of your desires. Let us merely warn you lest what is now only the stirrings of rebellion develop into a habit and your few remaining chances of procuring a sheepskin go glimmering. If we know you well you have been looking since the beginning of this letter for the apt quotation that it should contain. Today it is a justification of out plagiarism in regard to a certain Latin philosopher, to wit, Seneca. He, himself, has rightly said: fiooy v- - 1937 - CN 17 "'-' ere. c f7'b f'T7 "I am very liberal with the words of others for whatever is well said by another belongs to me." So we feel that you will appreciate our second-hand gems of wisdom and pile them up in your private storehouses of advice to be absorbed, but never assimilated. fftzrelwefl. V. ON THis PRoPizR TIME To SLIP THE CABLE After a long space of time we have again surveyed your schedules, Underclassmen, and have thus been brought face to face with the days of our youth. It seemed to us that we could still do, nay, had done only a short time ago, all the things that we did when young women. We have sailed through College, Underclassmetr, as if we were on a voyage, and just as when at sea, to quote from our poet, Vergil, "Lands and towns are left asternf' Even so, on this journey where time is consumed by innumerable tasks, we put below the horizon first our illusions next our enerv , and finall our strength and health. We begin 1 any as aa to sight the general bourne of the race of collegians. Foolish as we are, we believe this bourne to be our objective, when in reality it is merely the commencement of a long vacation. Most foolish of all is our eternal laborg for the wise student will do not as much graduation, the harbor for which we have worked so hardg as she ought to but as much as she is compelled to. She will choose what subjects she must study, as long, and with that degree of concentration she cannot escape. She will consider not the quantity of study in her course, but the quality of this attention. It is folly to study through fear of expulsion for the executioner is already upon you, wait for him as you await the inevitable, with a calm heart and unafraid. Why anticipate him? Why assume the management of a cruel task that belongs to another? Do you begrudge your executioner his privilege? Therefore, no general statement can be made with regard to the question whether, when a power beyond our control threatens us with expulsion, we should anticipate failure or await it. If on the one hand failure is preceded by awful anticipation and followed by ghastly realization, and on the other hand can be easily avoided by with- , choose the latter? just as we shall select our ships when we are about to go on a voyage, or our homes when we propose to take up a residence, so we shall choose our manner of withdrawal when we are about to leave the realms of learn- ing. Moreover, just as a long-drawn-out college career does not necessarily mean a better one, so a long-drawn-out period of withdrawal necessarily means greater disgrace. Your sole aim should be to escape from College as speedily as possible, for at any rate there will be no lack of persons who will think ill of what you have done. Reason, therefore, advises us to withdraw while we may, lest we be compelled to leave. For many students have realized the aptness of the quotation: "He who flunks and leaves this College, Lives to flunk in another College." drawal why not -Fczreufell. f 101 J 1957 AY .......- --..... fx '7 Fi ELMATA CN f, Morales to Harmon From the sublime to the psuedo---ricliculous.

E. 11041 Labor Omnia Vincit 1937 Cx "7 -' CN f7 The Day After Exams 'Twas a beautiful morning And all through the class Not a girl was stirring, Not a note was passed. Sister picked up the Blue Books, Ah, fatal exams, And read the translations Which passed through her hands. "jouer aux coudesn- Will you ever forget it?i Received scores of translations, But none that would lit it. "Playing with skulls," lfyebrows were raised, "Playing the violin," More dense grew the haze. "Playing with the elbows, This illustration Delighted the girls XVith its interpretation. "Playing cards," Innocently stated Left all the girls highly elated. Proving by every manifestation That French develops a vivid imagination The Seniors' Plea Listen, Faculty, to our plea, Drop this highly cultured game. All this fine gentility Grows to be exceeding tame. What we want is more time off,- Time for leisure and for play. Please don't laugh at us and scoff, All work makes one dull, they say. We're so tired of French and Methods, Don't you think we've earned a rest? Latin, Science, Biology, Ethics Have really put our brains to test. 19 37 tx f'D, Relaxation is what we need? If to our aid you do not fly, As you alone this boon can deed Results we dare not prophesy. VVe want not soft and honeyed Guaranteed to banish wrath. Parrying words is too absurd, Pandemonium the aftermath. Yet this state can be averted, Only cede to our demands. All our wishes we have asserted, Now our fate is in your hands. f105J word Euan - fx f, Ad Usum Privatum Thesis: Education as dehnetl by Educators, etc., is Not Possible. Educ.ztiw1AHarmonious development of assimilative, competitive, destructive, and appeti- tive faculties of the student, hence, change. I-Iarmozziozzf-Agreeable. De1'elupment-Improvement or deterioration. Afmfzilatize-Faculty that soaks up facts and fancy. Competifire-Faculty that struggles against said facts. Deitz'm'ti1ie-Faculty of curiosity-works overtime. Appefitire-Faculty that leaves the cafeteria barren. Ciwzge-Advance from state of inertia to state of ambition. Defined-Explanation given in form of definition. Eti'.-What you say when you can't think of anything more to say. li not possible-Unaccomplishable feven by a miraclej. PROOF: Change is not possible in a student. Education is change. Therefore, Education is not possible in a student. Mtzjar-Parmenides proved that change is not possible in anything. Therefore, why not include a student? . In a student if anything changes it is either her mind or her will. But her mind cannot change for it is paralyzed from super-saturation. Nor can her will change for it is passive. Therefore, there can be no change in a student. This argument gave the Greeks a headache for three hundred years. Why should you be spared? Minor-Education as defined by educators is an advance from the state of inertia to the state of ambition. But from experience we have learned that the average student advances from a state of ambition to a state of inertia, or in the opposite direction from education. Therefore, education is not possible. A d zfermrief .' I. Aristotle: denies change is impossible. II. Educators: deny thesis on general principle that it will deprive them of their life work. SL'f70ff0l1.' Many of you, following in the path of Aristotle, will try to disprove our thesis. However, we wish to make just one statement. If you don't agree with our argument, what is yours? Is it better? If not, please refrain from criticism. C1061 1937 CX A -. - ELMATA CN f7 Ad Usum Privatum Thesis: Anthropological Evolution Indirectly Proves That Our Life Is Eternal.

Scbolions Excerpt from Professor Sans Intelligence's book, "Woman, the Unusual."- Chapter I. QPublished-11,936 AD., Elmotir Girl: Skull and part of thigh bone found on junkit Desert, where hamlet of Chicopee was once located. Also scraps of black cloth and small card printed in patois used about 1937 in that region. Cloth believed to be "serge" much in use in that century for uniforms. Card, deciphered by experts, proved to be Degree Summa Cum Laude awarded by the College of Our Lady of the Elms. Further research showed that this was an institution of learning located in the aforementioned Chicopee about the time of the famous eruption of Mount Tom in june, 1957. Scientists, puzzled by the size of the skull, which was greatly enlarged, concluded that it was the result of overstudy. Valued as unusual specimen of college student of that century. 11075 1957 A - L - tx 4,3-' ELMAM Cx f?
