We of the Class of '38 have experienced your largesse. Your wisdom has provided for us an institu- tion where God is a reality. Your sacrifice has shown us the path of true service in self- forgetfulness. Your merry countenance has proven that the good life is the happy one. For these things and for the many unmention- ed the Class of '38 wishes to dedicate this volume to you as a slight, tangible indication of its gratitude and reverence for its beloved president. -l6l' H is E.x'C01fz'11c'y THE MOST REVEREND 'TI-IOINIAS MARY O'LEARY, D.D qiyf.. 9 M x .

And he said: No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in tht dawning of your knowledge. The teacher who Walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his Wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding. The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm or the voice that echoes it And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither. For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God's knowledge, so must each one of you stand alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth." By this criterion we have judged you - And you were not found wanting. 'lfli VV , A V. JOHN R. ROONEY, S.T.B., P VICE PRESIDENT 0210!- REV. GEORGE A. SHEA, S.T.D.,Ph.D PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY -lul- rf Y J' MISS KATHERINE V. LONG, B.S DIRECTOR OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION 'fl2l' . A grq MISS JEANNETTE P. PREU LIBRARIAN 4131- REV. JEREMIAH P. SHEEHAN, D.C.L CHAPLAIN-PROFESSOR OF RELIGION 'IMI'- DOCTOR SHEEHA Introducing in our last year a new professor of religion created a tension of suspense among the Seniors. The two inevitable questions buzzed in our minds, "XVho and what is he like?" These persisted until late in October when Doctor Sheehan appeared on the campus ready to change his parish duties for those of professor angl chaplain. We found to our deep gratification that Doctor Sheehan was prepared to extend to us the ready hand of friend and guide. Although his classroom may have resounded with questions as to the etymology of words, this word, friend, needed no such research. Its source was instinctively felt one toward another. The past year has pictured Doctor Sheehan in many roles. His example has not failed to imprint in our hearts true reverence and appreciation for a solitary moment with the Blessed Sacrament. As professor, he has endeavored to teach us to coordinate our ideas on the present and to season our judgments with experiences of the past. Outside of academic duties, he has listened with a sympathetic understanding to our difficulties. His pleasant, jovial humor always dispersed our momentary quandaries, and left us soothed and comforted. In this favorite role we shall always visualize him. A year may be a short period upon which to base a life-long friendship. However, we feel it is a capable foundation since it is built on mutual interest of the future of O. I.. E. -Ili? FATHER LA E Father Lane in a column? Impossible! His is the personality which challenges words to capture the heights of an enthusiastic soul. In the manner of "The New Yorker" we might essay a profile sketch of this passionate preacher, scholar, critic and litterateur but in this brief space we choose to pen him as the professor and man. Time will never dim for us the diabolical gleam of his eyes when he thinks of a modern problem to pose in an exam nor the sympathetic glance cast at his fellow victims of wet Chicopee weather. W'ho can ever forget his mental tonics of outlined encyclicals, case questions and discussion problems? His inspirational teaching opens to us new beauties in the Great Sacrifice, his vivid descriptions recreate the historic institution of the Sacraments, his pithy sayings sear into our memories adequate rules for Catholic conduct. For the intelligent, com- prehensive, Christian treatment of the subject of marriage we are particularly and deeply indebted. Father Lane, the man, will hold ever a sovereign place in our gallery of favorite people. By his genial humor, broad tolerance of human weakness, and generous dedication of his time and energy to the causes so close to the heart of youth, he has endeared himself to us. By his unconquerable hatred of hypocrisy and unsatiable thirst for justice and charity in human relations he has given an example and norm for noble living. In the outlines of his character we discern the foundation for the definition of man, "A creature made to the image and likeness of God." 4162- ELMATA 1938 ,421-5 f , ww,. :N A f'Q-F5144-A ' " lgyx Q9 9 1559 EJ F ii'4:N lg' OOO f f.

ELMATA 1938 4451'- THE CLASS OF '38 POEM Original Verse Composed by FRANCES JULIE MANGIN When passing years have snatched away the precious youth we bear, And fleeting time has cast its silver glow upon our hair, Still in the temple of our heart, reserved for mem'ries dear, Our Alma Mater's shrine will long outlive each passing year. There in the quiet stillness far beyond all care and strife, At times we shall retreat to tell our rosary of life, And as the precious gems slip slowly, finding their release, Four golden beads, our College years, will bring us joy and peace. We know not what the paths shall hold that stretch their way ahead, The saintly models of our College days dispel our dread, Made strong by Christian principles and fortified for woe XY!e'll find our Lady waiting on the path we choose to go. And tho' a tinge of sadness cloud the parting of the ways We shall find joy in living as we've lived our College days, Trusting in God, we'll know success in any path or glen, And, at the Place where roadways meet, we all shall meet again.

CLASS HISTORY To-day, young ladies, we will try For our class in history to espy The Elms class of '38, And to its functions dedicate Our efforts in our work to-day. Much have they labored, much have done, In the midst of their efforts lurks much fun. So listen and learn and concentrate On the exceptional class of '38, That yours, too, may rate "Grade A". I'Iistory's composed of cause and effect. This class was a wonder, that we detect. What brought this greatness to heights sublime That we'll discover within our rhyme. Open your text-books, we'll begin With that page in history that ushers in This famous class. QThat day in September 'Tis well to rememberj For like that in April of '75 This date, too, will fore,er survive, When at the Elms portals in '34 A group of freshmen, thirty or more Marriculated. Gathered at Mass in earnest prayer, Asked of the Holy Ghost, blessings rare, That that which helps life's grim solution Might be at this collegiate institution Quite stimulated. Thus began their initial year, And then to lend them warmest cheer In about a week there came to pass The Freshman reception by the Senior class, Sweet young freshies with big green bows, Refreshments served in O'Leary Hall, And stunts and games in the gym for all. Kay Lockhart made a spokesman effective, As she offered for them a greeting collective- So the history goes. Turning the pages, the next event, The election of a president. PRUNELLA PRIM, now please relate All the details of that starry date. For the captain of our freshmen cruise Mary Ellen Quilty, the class did choose. Franny O'Brien was deemed proficient To be our captain's first assistant, For secretary Betty Maroney, sweet and sunny, With Rita Ahearn to handle the money. -1502- For such ofiicers our vote was cast And with a gallant crew before the mast We could not tarry. And from your text-book, BARBARA BEAN Let us see what data you can glean. To help us along our spiritual way Fr. Dolan came for a three-day stay. With words of warning, strict and stern, He gave our thoughts a serious turn, In our first retreat. Then for our parents, a welcome grand With song and dance by our merry bandg Our president sang and many another- Fran Mangin rendered "AN Old-Fashioned Mother" So lovely and sweet. PROFESSOR: So here we are at a week in October With Shylock's pound and Hamlet's ghost And a study in Macbeth that excelled the most, With students attending silent and sober. Shakesperian lectures bore much fruit And hearty toasts For the sterling hosts Of Dr. Paulding's institute. And now, my students, this kindly note, The result of the first debating party, The negative won the issue by vote Because by far they crowed most hearty. Thanksgiving baskets, did I hear? I should say! 'Tis true! What glowing cheer in wrappings gay That drop of kindness the class did offer Brought great rewards from God's own coffer. And now, my dearest TRUDY TACE, Please tells us the cause of your beaming face That beam was caused by thoughts so rare Of a turkey dinner beyond compareg The gracious Sisters' kindly gift, Followed by that pleasant rift, Thanksgiving vacation with zestful elation. PROFESSOR: Ah! that was truly a cause to be jolly! But oh! the joys that went with holly. That little party held in the "rec", Which all enjoyed to the tiniest spec. And then that glimpse of heaven on earth, The Christmas partyg the Christ-child's birth, And all about it that air of grace That falls from the halo near Mary's face. -fill- Yes? What is it, CYNTHIA SUE? That illustration on page 22? Explain it please, with your usual ease. The background's black, but it,s not the print But just the freshmen in vacation sprint. Here and there, good-bye and farewell, A smile and a tear till the next classroom bell. The picture is bright and depicts for us well The glamour and charm of the Elms' sweet spell. PROFESSOR: And now, dear girls, please pay attention! Do not whisper-or else detention. The next of importance this class did feast Was Fr. Hubbard the "Glacier Priest". His Alaskan scenes were awe inspiring. The Glee Club sang with hearts untiring. The change from song-books to text-books then, As the freshmen mid-year exams begin. Spectres haunted all the halls And peopled classrooms' empty air As unsolved questions danced on walls And made wee freshmen tear their hair. Close on the heels of this mental toil, Measles stalked and took its toll, In numbers large, gay plans did foil For the Junior prom and a social rolcg Howe'er, some gallants of the humble band Dared to mingle with the juniors grand. Continue the lesson, MINERVA MC GEE, The next rendition will come from thee. Then on the scene came "Pilate's Daughtern A noble production, its first at the college. Her noble life, God's love had taught her Through stormy strife, His grace had sought her. Some frosh in the cast, says this book of knowledge Were the Misses Donovan, Mangin and Moore Who helped to increase the drama's sweet lure. Followed the Easter vacation right near V. With fashions' joy and Holy Week's tear That's all I've prepared for my lesson, dear teacher, Someone else who knows more for her help I beseech her. BEATRICE BALLOON Qrising and promptly continuing, I've found a note in my history that quotes "Midst prayerful devotion and hymns' sweetest notes On Mary's Day In lovely May Did our college pay Homage to Our Mother on high That ever and always our love She might tie To Her and Her Son. This devotion was done For the first time that day In 'BVS dearest May." -lvl- PROFESSOR: 'Tis right well you've done, cute Beatrice Balloon And now let us hasten in gay, merry tune, Ere May with spring flowers had merged into June. With Demosthenes many of the class did commune, And Cicero's fire and Webster's finesse Those keen young orators didst attempt to possess Standing forth in Veritas with forensic display Their prowess sent forth on Oratorical Day. Kathleen O'Brien for the class gained renown: To her in this contest went second-best crown. And June with its sunshine brought many a lark, A hamburg roast in Forest Park A theatre party on a cloudy day, When a scheduled picnic fell by the way. Next at Sylvia Kilbride's invitation Came about a joyous situation. Swimming and frankfurts our favor did gain One afternoon at Lake Lorraine. So very soon came Commencement week At its sad delights we'll take but a peek For behind had been placed a happy year Once freshmen alone, now a class without peer. SOPI-IOMORE YEAR We'll begin the next chapter in our book Commence the description, Miss MARTHA MC SNOOK Soon the forest leaves were turning Soon the Elms girls returning Soon the erstwhile freshmen yearning For the stately halls of learning. Came the Junior, came the Senior, Came the Freshie, each so green here, Came then too, this class heroic For their efforts Sophomoric, Came with ardor ever burning To this eminent place of learning Though the ranks had lost some members Though they'd left like faded embers Still the class so well remembers Those who shared our first year,s meeting. Starting then with earnest vigor Once again came classroom rigor Once again came merry friendships Yet again upon our friendships Issued forth their fervent greeting. First occurred the class elections After weighty introspections Voted then these choice selections By these nimble sophomores. President's chair fell to Rita Ahearn, While Assistant-Elect Mary Ellen did earn. To the care of the records Fran O'Brien did turng -ISH- Guarding the treas'ry,-Dot Zielinski's concern With its monetary stores. PROFESSOR: With the otlicers elected With the leadership effected Upon earnest work projected This class with which we dwell October came upon the campusg Melancholy soon did stamp us, With its deep quiescent spell- With our fall retreat approaching Came too, sadness, swift encroaching One whose love and moral coaching Blessed these stately college grounds. Monsignor Doyle with us no longer, Retreat impressed us much the stronger Solemnly, with fervent feeling Father Tivnan's words appealing To minds wrapped in sorrow's bounds. I shall pause, so please continue, Let the others concentrate. Carry on, Ophelia Minew, Information circulate. OPHELIA MINEW: Days hurried by like the notes of a song, Events thick and fast helped them fleet along, Cap and Gown Sunday, Thanksgiving flew by, The Christmas Party, with December's sky Ready to welcome the cheery vacationistsg With the New Year, returning as keen applicationists For the "Battle of Mid-Year" to attempt to prepare. Then three days of freedom with never a care, This post-exam interlude was the last they did share For the next year was cancelled this privilege so rare CATHERINE CRUNCH: fBreaks inj I wish to venture if I may This bit of knowledge right away. Thence to every girl came "Everyman" A dramatization of thc Sophomore clan Presenting its moral stimulation Our Thespian's effort at elevation. Another event of February Was our Valentine party extraordinary For the mellow glow of candlelight In the darkened gym, how cheery a sight! To our Senior sisters this last farewell, Old-fashioned bouquets to heighten the spell, With fortunes and hearts and goodies to eat- The party was voted a singular feat. 4541? PROFESSOR: Catherine Crunch for that dissertation A right good mark with justification. The next to recite, Miss Hepzibah Tover, Narrate the data which you discover. HEPZIBAH: Alas I begin with a tragic air Such infinite troubles were brought to bear As the middle of March swung into line Commuters stranded, for home did pine. Acres of land under water submerged, And rampant rivers with fury urged, And havoc wrought that congealed the blood- Such is the memory of the flood. Collegiennes flocked to the top of the tower For a view of the valley in the flood's mighty power A gradual recession of tragedy's woes- Thence came the sweetness of Claudia's rose. For the titular role, to bear the sacred rose The leader of our class, the faculty chose. PROFESSOR: Like Spring and the flowers And Easter and May Oratoricals came And held sway for a day. Another Commencement, another year done. Via Veritas Medal for Catholic women was won By Mrs. McGoldrick, for achievement outstanding, An important announcement of interest commanding, Dr. Rooney's appointment as college Vice President. As to what he would do, speculation was prevalent. So with the many affairs of this busiest week To the parting farewell with a tear on the cheek, We reverently place in memory's sweet cloud The many gay events of the Sophomores proud. JUNIOR YEAR PROFESSOR: Vacation days once more behind As, sweetly calling, College bells' summons chime down the wind. With speed appalling. Summer's placid happy days had floated by Spent in relaxation. Once more to the realm of books their steps did hie For new concentration. IDA CANDLEWICK: 'Tis time to proceed, Try to remember these facts as you read. The Jolly Juniors' year begins -USI- Attacking studies with cheerful grins. Renewing friendships, exchanging news, Plans for the future, comparing views, September is here, and quick dashes past Elections are over- Three girls re-elected, so class votes were cast. The ofhcers four Misses Zielinski, Quilty, Ahearn-so we see Treasurer, vice-president, president,-three, Kathryn Dwyer accepted the role of secretary The task of inscribing the records to carry. Another election occurred right soon When committees and chairmen then were chosen For the Junior Promenade when the February moon Should gleam from the heavens o'er landscape frozen. General chairman of all the fun, was Florence Dunn, Betty Maroney, in charge of harmony, Mary O'Brien, took tickets in line, Katherine Toole, publicity jewel, Catherine Syner, patron diviner, Louise McCann, refreshments did plan, Miss Helen Auth, did programs betroth, Miss Scanlon, Mary Alice,-to decorate our prom palace With such a committee for collaboration Ideas gathered fast for this celebration. PROFESSOR: Well didst thou thy subject propound, Showing a wealth of knowledge profound. More on the subject I shall freely expound, Listen sagaciously, utter no sound. On to November with Cap and Gown Sunday When the Juniors displayed their esteem for those Who were given insignias udignitatis profundaen, Presenting corsages, made each with the rose. Then were selected those tourmaline rings That with their arrival brought such cries of elation. An informal "hop" next this thought brings In O,Leary Hall-this was a distinct innovation. Chaos reigned in glee for a while As the mechanical orchestra decided to strike, But the nickelodeon at last arose with a smile And joy replaced chaos, who went out on a hike. The beds in the dorm were crowded char night As the day students stayed by the grace of the sistersg And after their escorts departed,-no light From each room,-but giggles and whispers. Soon looking back on the turn of the year, Soon facing mid-years with the usual frown, After which hurried in the Prom's brilliant cheer With Jan Campbell's rhythm of extensive renown, Cute colored darkies told off each new dance And were found in each program's sweet silver creation! Ah yes! feet tripped that night tinged with magic romance Gay music permeated this Southern Plantation. -Iwi- Continue the lesson, Miss ELIZA ELITE, And please stop tapping your dainty feet. And so we come to the Passion Play When Juniors much in the cast did hold sway. So to the Mother-Daughter Tea Given by the B. V. M. Sodality, With variety furnished by military whist And potted marigolds with sunbeams kissed. Oratoricals again, second prize to the class, Fran Mangin to that extent did surpass. Now at Commencement Week we gaze- That week so full of peerless days. A picnic royal at Mount Marie For the two upper classes-a merry bee. Reverend Mothcr's treat-'twas so grand- Busloads of students-a singing band. Introduced this year was the daisy chain To symbolize youth-youth's friendship maintain: Carried by a sextet of Juniors selected For beauty, a stellar Senior escort effected. Thus class day faded, Baccalaureate, too. "Completed the voyage of the Junior crew And looking outward from our steamer's deck, Gur bearings we take and our course we check. Three years have we spent before the mastg The one that comes next must be the last- And as sunset fades in the summer skies We look forward and wonder what yonder lies." Ere September to Summer had bid: "Adios," We realized our College year lay very close, Borne on che crisp cool wind of the fall, School-days again, reunion, and all. Some faculty changes- Encountered us first as we wandered around Re-visiting old haunts o'er the elm-shaded ground. Sister Urban had left her quiet understanding, And devotion to College, our affection commanding So time arrangesg Sister Antonella succeeds her with efficient instruction In History of "Ed" and "Methods" conduction. Our first Senior function- To the rescue of timid Freshmen we went, With a reception in which great efforts were spent, To Welcome the "Freshies" with gracious finesse, For we well did remember our own Freshman distress When we hoped for such unction. Your turn for discussion, MISS DAISY DE WITT, There is much to discern as o'er these pages we flit. Absorbed then with study of French and Psychology With Education and Ethics and perplexing Sociology: Such vigor applied, such energy tried, That naught was there need for classroom apology. -ls7I- Then elections, again, once more to unravel, The choice of the ballots for the class' final travel, Mary Ellen Quilty and Kathryn Dwyer, And Dotty Zielinski did their same posts acquire. With Rita Corridan wielding the president's gavel. And now the Autumn which brings such glory Soon brought a melancholy story, Sister Pascal up to those heavenly portals, Passed from the midst of we sorrowing mortals, Joining our long absent dean, Sister Mary Baptista, Reward of the Master in heavenis bright vista. DOROTHY DISH: To this splendid recitation, I would add no consternation, Yet, of my mental application Would I give a demonstration. PROFESSOR: Such tremendous enthusiasm, DOROTHY DISH! Carry on with the history if you wish. A number of items I have on my list, A number of items that must not be missed, Our solemn Retreat made us feel adolescent, Instructions of childhood again reminiscent So were the words of such condescensiong Then, the Sophomore party, so gay and so bright, To we Seniors, a festival-a right happy night. Next, year-book elections joined in the parade: Helen Currier for Editor, Verge Campbell her aide, Voted the class convention, With Miss Mangin, Miss Quilty, Miss Moore and Miss To make of the year book a treasure, a trophy, Kay Dwyer for business, Kay Syner for advertising, So started they all, each in her work specializing. And then there came Thanksgiving and the Dance Elmata, And then, like the tones of a sacred Cantata, Cap and Gown Sunday with its poignant impress, A sermon, benediction-Seniors in dress As well as in name. Refreshed by the worth of the words they did hear, Refreshing, the food and gifts of the Juniors dear. PROFESSOR: And now for the nonce, PETUNIA PLUME, Stop making those faces and kindly resume. Christmas and holidays and joyous relief, Then study and mid-years and mental grief, A vote for the ones the Prom to prepare, Mary Scanlon selected as "charge diaffairef' Verge Campbell for music muse, Rita Ahearn to patrons choose, Brophy 4582- Mary O'Brien, the tickets to sell, Katherine Toole, the public to tell, Kay O'Brien to refresh the jaded dancers, Joan Dragon, for favors, so capably answers, And last on the list for the june allure, Is chief decorationist, Marguerite Moore. PROFESSOR: And now, my lassies, before we're through, We'll have a recitation from BLOSSOM BLUE. "Little Women" then on the campus held sway, Adroitly presented, this three-act play, Then Junior Prom and so Lent began, And through it, the Passion Play rehearsals ran. Each Senior in the cast reenacted her role, But Miss Mangin played "Claudia,' due to illness toll. Marguerite Moore was promoted to "Afra" this time, And her brand new version of "Afra" was Hne. After Easter vacation, May Queen Coronation, With Betty Stevens, Kay Dwyer and Florence Dunn, Peg Moriarty, Cille Cushion, escorting honors won. Rapidly now were the days flying by, Like leaves on a wind as they sail through the sky, Mothers and daughters so friendly at tea, Debating, oratoricals, exams finally. Ah! Here at last is Commencement Week! Awaited so long, yet that tear on the cheek. The final picnic where fun does reign, That final march with the daisy chain, That last dear class-day with its parting pain. PROFESSOR: Still have we our Prom to enjoy, As dancing gaily each girl and boy, Japanese lanterns in the sunset glow, To the fetching rhythm sway to and fro. The Alumnae return and Baccalaureate will be When each of we Seniors will receive her degree. Looking backward over the years that are gone, To the day when our College life was as young as the dawn Looking backward through text-books and theses and tomes, Many scenes recollect as our memory roams, Through sessions with Milton, and horrors with Poe, Through history's pages and philosophy's woe, As Biology, Chemistry, Spanish and French, And dogmatic Religion in our minds we entrench, Backward we gaze through each fruitful year, Finding myriads of scenes that will ever be dear, Scenes in assembly, in classroom and gym, Recreation and meeting-these never will dimg For as time changes minutes and fashions the years, And brings with it conquering joys midst the tears, -4591- How often our memory to this campus will stray To teachers and friends that may be far away, Thanking Him in His goodness, asking Him for the grace That our Alma Mater's teaching, time may never efface. Hark! Is that the bell that I hear? We must put an end to this lesson I fear. So, dear students, before we're through, This solemn advice, I give to you, Forever remember and imitate The invincible Class of '38, , XR- 1 T32 , 4 2 5 5 x Q ":: f Eiiff xxfa, s J o Q .f 0, E 'l60l' PROPI-IECY MIRL-XM T. DONON -KN At last the long awaited day arrived. It Was August 2. 19i0 and we were on our way to the World's Fair in New York City. I met Kitty Toole in Springtield where for ten years she had been skillfully carrying out her duties as Editor of the Springrield City Journal. After a hot trip we arrived at the Great Fair. One of the tirst buildings to attract our attention was that entitled "Education in America." On entering this beautiful structure we saw two classmates from O. I.. E.. Helen Currier and Virginia Campbell. Both were busily engaged in giving lectures to a large audience. Helen is now President of Boston University and one of the foremost authors of the day. Her latest book. "Philosophy at a Glance." is being adopted by many prominent colleges. Virginia is Professor of English at the University. and very successful in all her undertakings. Upon looking over the pamphlets which Helen was discussing. our attention was drawn to one in particular. The heading read. "Bliss Rita Ahearn Startles Philosophers by Discovery Based on Proof That 'rielle' and 'ideal' Are Not Contradictory Terms after All." Rita has been happily married since the pamphlet was published. and I hear she makes a very charming wife "really." We were growing very tired and had decided to call it a day and set off to look for a hotel room. Suddenly a gigantic building attracted our attention. A sign outside said, "The W'orld of Aviation." We entered and behold, who should greet us. but Katie Dwyer who had just completed a non-stop Hight across the Pacitic. She told us that while in France last year she met Dot Brophy and Kay O'Brien. Dot is the United States Ambassadoress to that country. and according to Katie. is very fond of her position. Kathleen is a member of the National French Dramatic Guild. and a very popular actress on the Parisian stage. She not only acts but also composes many plays. After our very enjoyable visit, we went to seek lodging in a comfortable hotel. On the outskirts of the city we found just what we were looking for. It was called the "John Phelan Hotel." The proprietress was none other than Florence Dunn who appeared to be very well and happy in her new state of life. We had many enjoyable times together during our stay there. W'e talked with Flossie for about an hour. She told us that Mickey McCann is profitably employed in the U. S. Consul Service in South America. Marguerite Moore is running a fashionable riding school in Philadel- phia, and never misses seeing a rodeo show when there's one in the city. Moorie always had a special liking for horses. We went to our room to rest about five o'clock. Wife turned on the radio and the tirst words that greeted us were: "Good aftemoon. everyone: this is Franny Manginf' Fran is among the most prominent Catholic poets of the day and a famous radio star. Her programs include dramatizations, reading of poems and songs. We had bought tickets for the Metropolitan Opera House for that evening, when the operatic stars were to present Verdi's famous opera, "Aida." Before getting ready for this event. however. we decided to take a walk through the hotel and look around. On the main tloor we spotted a very modernistic beauty salon run by Mary O'Brien. Mary is very successful at this work, and has a steady stream of customers. We had a nice visit and promised to return before our stay in New York was over. Vfhile walking down the corridor on the second floor, a sign on a door at the right attracted our attention. It read "Betty -lei? Stevens, M. D." We went in and found the office filled with patients, and the doctor our beloved classmate at 0. L. E. NVe reached the opera house at about 8:00. While waiting for the curtain, we looked at the program and to our delight saw that the leading role of "Aida" was to be sung by Mary Ellen Quilty, who took the part beautifully and furnished a most enjoyable evening. XVe slept late the next day and decided not to go to the Fair until late afternoon, as we wanted to be present for the ice carnival in the evening. So we took a bus to the New York Library. We couldn't go home without seeing that. Who was seated at the large desk as head librarian but Lucille Cushion. She showed us around the building and drew our attention to a book by Mary Scanlon, "History of the World." Mary is a professor of American History at Wellesley College. Before returning to the hotel, we decided to go down to New York Harbor for about an hour to enjoy the scenery and watch the great vessels entering and leaving port. We reached the harbor just in time to see a beautiful new liner ready to dock. It was the queen and pride of the Ward Line, called the "S. S. Henry." To our surprise we saw Rita Corridan, our Senior Class President, standing on deck and waving to us. Rita told us that she is teaching English at the Sorbonneg but returned to this country to attend the World's Fair. She came to the hotel with us and after a short rest, we took the bus to the Fair. On the way, we told Rita about meeting so many girls from the Elms in such a short time. She was very much surprised, and told us that Dot Zielinski and Catherine Syner are now very skillful technicians at the Mas- sachusetts General Hospital. We arrived safely at the Fair, and decided to go first to the Fashion Building where a style show was being held, in which Joan Dragon and Helen Auth were two outstanding models. We had a very delightful visit with them after the show was over, talking over our college days. The ice carnival was to begin at eight o'clock. It was held in a specially ventilated building so we had to put on heavy coats for the occasion, even though it was yet summer. The spectators were very anxious for the opening. Great amplifiers were placed in different sections of the Coliseum. At last we heard the announcer's enthusiastic voice,-"Introducing our three stars of the evening, the world's most famous skaters, Peg Moriarty, Betty Maroney and Sonja Henie. The exhibition was remarkable, and we congratulated Peg and Betty after it was over, and we had a nice long talk with them. We remained in New York for about a month and enjoyed every minute of our vacation, happy to know that everyone in our Class of '38 had fared so well in life. PROPHEC Y ON PROPHE T During the summer of 1948, I embarked on a European trip. I landed at Havre and proceeded to Paris, where I intended to spend several days. On one of my trips through the city, I visited a fashionable finishing school for girls, and was delightfully sur- prised to find that one of the instructors there was my college friend, Miriam Donovan. She told me that she had been teaching in Paris for five years. We chatted about old times and mutual friends. As I was leaving, Miriam promised that she would return to America when the class of 1938 held its next reunion at Our Lady of the Elms. -MARY O7BRIEN. 'l62l' CLASS WILL HELEN AUTH We, the Seniors of the College of Our Lady of the Elms, in the Plantation of Chicopee and State of Massachusetts, being of sound mind, memory and judgment, do hereby declare this to be our last will and testament, and do earnestly hope that our last requests be carried out as directed. We give and bequeath to our President, his Excellency Bishop O'Leary, to our Vice President, Dr. Rooney, to our Dean, Sister M. Ligouri, and to all the other members of the faculty, our sincere affection, our deepest reverence, our heartiest gratitude, and the whole unlimited wealth of our eternal memory. Again, We give and bequeath to our faculty all the amazing knowledge and startling information that we have furnished them from time to time in our various examination papers. If the faculty see fit, they are authorized to give out such of this information to the world of science and learning as they feel the world is ready to receive. Dorothy Zielinski leaves to all future class treasurers her ability to make perfect record- ings of the financial standing of class members, and her successful methods of col- lecting dues. Marguerite Moore wills her dramatic ability to Marguerita Danahey with the proviso that she continue the organization of the Dramatic Society. To give a proof of our unselishness to the world, we leave Frances Mangin's poetry. Joan Dragon chooses that Mary Larkin should be left her ability to spend much time looking for a study hall only to find she can't keep it private. Betty Maroney leaves her athletic prowess to Eleanor O'Herron. Betty Stevens deems it time to turn over her Philosophy books to Annette LaLiberte. Louise McCann and Florence Dunn bequeath Room if-'3 to Margaret Riley and Mary Noonan. Our only request is that the new occupants of this room will be as gracious hostesses as Louise and Florence have been. Katherine Toole leaves a placard bearing the name Dolores Donlin to said person, so that there will be no mistaken identity in the future. To UM. E." Courtney, "M. E." Quilty leaves a dozen monogrammed gags of which not the least important is, "He who puns shall be 'pun'ished." Mary O'Brien leaves her quiet unassuming manner to Margaret Riley. Rita Corridan's ability to do all things well we leave to Edna Lunney. Helen Currier leaves her schoolgirl complexion to the Palmolive Company. To the present and future classes of O. L. E. we leave the gift of gab, gaiety and laughter of Margaret Moriarty. We desire this should be divided among the Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen, and a portion be left in trust for all future classes. "l63l' W'e bequeath Virginia Campbell's ability to pursue and conquer homework, especially French, to all students who need such a trait. Catherine Syner bequeaths a bundle of vitality and pep to the advertising manager of the '39 Elmnra. Katherine Dwyer leaves her naturalness and unaffected manner to all who can attain it. To Ruth Moran, Rita Ahearn wills a chauffeur, always waiting at the door when classes are finished, with explicit instructions to pick up all her classmates from school to the limit. Mary Scanlon leaves her tardiness to Helen Finnegang at times she may find it profitable. Lucille Cushion leaves a 10 cent bottle of waving lotion and a perforated curler to Ruth Dineen, so that she may fix the tresses of her classmates, especially at time for class pictures. Kathleen O'Brien leaves her oratorical ability to Lorraine Horan. May she profit by it especially in Oral Expression Contests. Miriam Donovan disposes of her Brief Case by willing it to any Freshie who would like to start on her college career with a good case, backed by a good reputation. Dorothy Brophy leaves her hobby for collecting miniature dogs to Rosemary Cum- mings. May she receive as much enjoyment from it as Dorothy has. In order to show our good will towards the Freshman Class, we leave them a copy of an "Old Farmer's Almanac" which will help them to steer clear of many an approach- ing storm, by enabling them to read in their professors' countenances the nature and condition of movements throughout the day. To the Sophomores, we leave our school spirit-may they continue to exhibit the same sort of enthusiasm and interest which has been manifested by the class of '38 at the Elms. Not only is application to school work necessary, but support of all school affairs and a whole-hearted cooperation of the entire class will be necessary if the class of '40 hopes to follow in the footsteps of its sister class. We give and bequeath unto the Juniors the great and noble honor of becoming Seniors, in order that they may have a year book in which 9922, of their classmates will be displeased, and we add our hopes that they will be as disappointed as we were, when we found out that our pictures looked just like us. Last comes the one thing difficult but necessary to relinquish. To the Juniors we leave our course in Senior Philosophy. If the class of '39 gains half the profit and inspiration which we have received, this will be their most precious possession, as it has been ours. We do hereby constitute and appoint the Dean, sole executrix of this, our last will and testament. In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hand and seal at our residence in College of Our Lady of the Elms, in the Plantation of Chicopee, Massachusetts, this , day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-eight.

Expressions and words are woefully inadequate to tell all that the Junior Class have done for their Alma Mater. In after years one of our most pregnant recollections will be the memory of this said class. With the same vivacity and energy with which they have encountered their scholastic studies, they have devoted themselves tirelessly to all other projects which they have undertaken. Their loyalty, steadfastness, and their readiness to help at all times reflects the real class spirit with which they are imbued, and rates them as A No. 1 friends and classmates. Their ability in dramatic fields is well recognized. This is shown by the important roles which have been assigned to many of their members in the cast of "Pilate,s Daughter." In debating too, they have proven that they can more than hold their owng and in all other extra-curricula activities they have deserved the praise which has been bestowed upon them. One of the outstanding events of our Senior Year was the delightful Cap and Gown Sunday program extended to us by the members of this class. It was characterized by originality, and will not soon be forgotten. Small wonder is it then that with the Junior Class continuing in the future as it has in the past we, the Class of '3 8, feel no qualms in predicting that they will well become the Seniorial garb and dignity which we will bestow upon them. 4691- IOR DIRECTORY JOSEPHINE R.

In the various clubs of the College, which aim to give a wider view of progress along different lines, and also to add iinesse to the cultural background that is obtained in the classroom, the Sophomores have been well represented by students, capable of taking their stand beside the upper classmen. XVe have ever found them ready to assist in any undertaking, which would add a note of glory or secure a word of praise for their Alma Mater. To the class of 1940, we lovingly give the following advice: "Continue your advance- ment onward and upward, and when the close of this decade shall Hnd you wearing the sable robe of the Senior Class, may it find you still sweet, gentle, progressive and helpful as in the days when you were Sophomores, and we, your sisters, admired and loved these virtues in youf' -L 73 l' SOPI-IO ORE DIRECTORY VIRGINIA ADAIWS Honxatonir, Maxx.

To them falls the fate of being the cynosure of all eyes- from the critical one of the Senior, to the sympathetic one of the Sophomore. Now, after a year of probation it is our duty to declaim their virtues and to predict a likely future for them. The day of registration we were greeted by a lively, likeable group of expectant faces. They seemed a bit too assured but we knew a few weeks would cure that! However, we hoped that spirit and action viewed so clearly would be retained, and it was. At every dance, at the proms, at theatrical productions, we could always count on the loyal support of the Freshmen. It is one of their striking characteristics and we hope nothing will dim its ardor. But, this might mislead the reader into thinking this Class is merely interested in social affairs. They lent their spirit industriously to class work, also. How many times we wondered how long their sacrificing spirit could withstand giving up free afternoons for the study hall. We were agreeably surprised to see that this was no flickering spurt of energy. In debates and assemblies their representatives have attained a high standard, creating a good impression on both faculty and student body. There is time for sports in every enjoyable schedule. It is not lacking here. Although the Freshmen have not been successful in gaining the trophy in intramurals, their spirit of enthusiasm has made them graceful in defeat. Four years is a long time to live up to a reputation of loyalty, industry and enthusiasm, which has been set at such a high standard. But, persevere, Freshmen, and keep your ideal before you. We have confidence that you can do it. You know that you will. -1277? FRESHMAN DIRECTORY HELEN M. BUTLER WoI'c'z'sfI'I', Mass. MARIE T. CALLAHAN Wforc'0sfm', Mass. MARY M. CALLAHAN VL7orvvsfvr, Mass.

Honor to her finds expression in the activities of the Sodality which is particularly devoted to Godis most holy Mother. As Freshmen, we looked with longing eyes on the "Upper Classmen" who were privileged to wear Mary's own Medal and when, in the course of time that distinction was con- ferred on us and we became real Sodalists our enthusiasm knew no bounds. The Spiritual Meetings held on each First Friday of the month intensified our reverence for the Queen of Heaven and enriched our spiritual lives while our daily lives grew more verdant in the literary and mission activities con- nected with the Sodality. Ever a source of pleasure and delight have been the Major Meetings and the social hour which precedes them. They will always live in our memory. XX'e wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to our Reverend Director and Directress under whose aid and guidance the Society has flourished and through whose influence we have come to recognize the true worth of "our tainted nature's solitary boast." As we pass for the last time through the portals of the Elms, ever in our hearts will be enshrined a prayer that Mary will continue to inspire us throughout life and that when the shades of death draw nigh her benediction may descend upon us.

Our gymnasium, on that Occasion, cast off its stern aspect and was transformed to a beautiful Southland scene, just as if some fairy god- mother had touched it with her wand. The fairy godmothers, however, were none other than the members of the Junior Class and an eflicient interior decorator, and unfortunately, there was no such wand to be had. Hard work and interested coopera- tion wrought magic, and the transformation of the 'gymi into a beautiful cottonfield was sufficient gratification for the labor involved. The junior Prom, so thoroughly enjoyed by all, is another proof of the ability of the class of thirty-eight to do all things well. 4183?

The leading questions that confront our modern scientists, as well as the observations and conclusions that have been arrived at, produce interesting and comprehensive subject material for the various discussions, so thoroughly treated by the members of the club. An element that adds to the attraction of the Science Circle and gives a clear and concise idea of the various subjects treated, is the use of moving pictures. In this way the students enjoy the illustrated representations of the various processes which enable us to produce artificially those necessities that otherwise are the work of nature. With the professor explaining each step in the process, the student acquires a clear idea of what is going on in the field of science about him. The class of 1938 leaves a hearty wish for continued success in this field, where minds are enlightened with the true facts of our progressive world, and scholars come to the realization that "true science and revelation cannot be at variance." .4 85 is CORTE CASTELLA A Pr'rxnlr'11l - - Louisa McCANN Vin' Prrmlwzf - - ANN CARROLL Sm'i'vfai'y - - - CARMEN PADILLA Tl't'lIX1ll'l'l' - - JOAN DRAGON Holding rigorously to its scheduled bimonthly meetings, La Corte Castellana main- tained an interesting program of activities. The aim of La Corte Castellana is to awak- en in its members an active appreciation of all that was and all that is Spanish. Follow- ing this plan, La Corte held .1 lively discussion of current events and the position of Spain in its present crisis. Wlieii Christmas appeared, we were glad to know just how the Spanish celebrate their Christmas. Under the direction of the president, individual countries were capably represented by different members. It was a beautiful and inspiring presentation. Leaving social affairs in the background for a serious study of the works of Lope de Vega, Gracian and Calderon, we proceeded to haunt the glorious history of Spanish literature. Witli Spring came thoughts of poetry. Who can better interpret the beauty of this season than our poets? A current events meeting seemed to complete the program of activities for this year. Thus, the old was tied wich the new in club assemblies. Now, La Corte Castellana is nearing the end of a successful year, hoping that the Spanish student has gained much practice in Spanish conversation and an insight into the beauty of its language.

Connected with this Club as a necessary and essen- tial unit is the Orchestra, whose harmonious strains have blended and heightened the effect of the various voices in the ensemble. Annual features of the Club are the Christmas Concert, when, to the clear, sweet notes of "Silent Night," the Yuletide season is ushered in and the Spring Concert, at which time Nature and all her attributes are lauded in song. The Glee Club contributes its talent to many of the plays produced during the year and has also furnished enjoyment to outside audiences, as will be remembered by the applause which greeted their efforts at the Springfield Auditorium a few years back and even more forcibly attested to last year by a gathering composed of Catholic Alumnae of various colleges. The crowning highlight of the Club has been the Double Quartet, which has ably demonstrated that it can transport us from this mortal soil into heavenly realms by the accord of sweet harmony.

The inter-class debates, which have been so intensely interesting to the students in the College, have not been received with less enthusiasm and admira- tion when staged before a strange audience. The debaters have shown themselves capable of weighing the good and bad points of the predominant questions of the day, and of defending their stand by forceful and clear argumentation. Friendly rivalry has been the outstanding characteristic of this society, and one team has never known a victory that the opposing team has HOF shared by its good sportsmanship. We congratulate the coach of our debating society for her untiring efforts along this line, and We feel sure, that, under her guidance, many young women will take their places among the logical thinkers and clear speakers of the world, and maintain that same self-confidence that has characterized our debating society thus far. .,: S9 1. - ,.,.M-ff .

We said to ourselves, l'Thc time now has come To put an end to uncertain rule What we need, what we want, is a written guide A most liberal one for a modern school." To the Head Powers we put our plea And asked them to furnish a remedy. A moment's pause. The reply came clear "Bide yet a while", we all did hear, "We'll grant all of your wishes within the year". We waited "awhile", The days slid on And ere we noticed the year was gone. Summer too went as on wings of song And autumn days had come alongg Happy we came trooping back to school Only to find there the same old rule And as we waited with patient sigh Autumn and half the winter went by. At last! At last! Came that joyous hour! Ring out ye bells in yon high tower!! Day of liberation you've come at last!! Day of confinement you are past!! But hold yet awhile-we've mischief there Can this be our plan of freedom fair? A pretty book 'tis true but something's wrong Can this be the liberty awaited so long--? The book that would hold our freedom's song? Where is the Weekly night out? my dear, Where does the later weekend appear? Where the clause that the Elms girls will be Without any fuss permitted to see Male callers so bold as to venture here? Oh "day hops" 'tis your turn to shed a tear You must stay on campus, hours that are free You can not loiter 'neath the old Elm tree Worse! You can't go home till half past three! Alack! Alas! that we should see this day- "A quarter for each tray you'll pay--'l "For concert or lecture-" we moan "The rule demands a chaperon". "A letter from home the 'sine qua non' For a weekend "af bomr"', then only one". If this be the answer to our plea, If this be your plan of remedy Give us the "good old days" that used to be. -'l107l' ADVERTISERS E' I3 HE CLASS OF 1938 WISHES TO EXTEND ITS SINCERE GRATITUDE TO THESE PATRONS OF THE ELMATA WHO HAVE HELPED SO SIGNALLY IN MAKING A SUCCESS OF OUR WORK.
