To indicate what we owe them, we must go back farther than 1935. For, it is to them that we must he grateful for the traditions, ideals, and scholastic standing of our College. More particularly must we express our thanks for their exemplary lives of scholarship, culture, and piety. It is our ardent prayer that God will always bless them and give to the Class of '39 the grace to be a source of pride to them in future years. .1 - t ,-Yr., . iKvu. 31nhn IK. ?Knnnrg, SL E.

O Sw A V I IXEXK xx mf b THE TF, X QPXSSES Class Poem Shall we chant our teachers' praise, For leading us through learning's maze, Through the twisted paths unknown, That we at last have made our own? Or was it through our parents' care, Who smoothed the way and paid the fare, And always lent a helping hand, To breast the waves, and reach the land? Shall we thank our country's name That this democracy did frameg And let the note of freedom chime, O'er this land for all time? Perhaps the thanks is due a friend, Who did the inspiration send, And by his prayer with ours united, Brought the end we now have sighted. Perhaps for these victorious palms To God we should sing our psalms: Wlmo showed the road whereon we stood, And gave us Grace to do the good. To teachers, parents, country and friend, To Lord of all, our praises tend, To one and all, we gratitude owe, From loyal hearts, our deep thanks flow. MARY O'CoNNoR.

"jo" is the type that is welcome in any circle-especially if there are cow- boy songs in the air, or if Mussolini is in need of defense. "jo" is hap- pily remembered for her songs-and she sings with feeling, for her smile- nnd it is a winnerg for her sincerity- it is Charming. Her manner is quietg yet every event from a basketball game to L1 glide on the waxed square found "Josie" present-with her smile and ever ready wit. . WW X . Q -e . r. 'X ,.

Her forte is definitely the theaterg her desire, to follow the footlights. Witlm her easy nonchalance, sturdy sense of humor, background of a Celtic heritage, Kenny's future in that field is assured. While we've known her, Helen has gone her way with that same sort of impersonal aloofness to difliculties that have arisen. So we can safely wish for Helen-many a curtain call!

She answered to the name of "Mag", you remember, and it was fun to have her around to answer. You could be sure of a real homey chat that did your heart good when "Mag" dropped in for a visit, and you could be equally certain that you would hear much of her hearty laugh. "Mag" was a real person-at home on the elocution platform, the cheering section, or the dance floor. And she likes to tell you of all the celebrities who call Uxbridge "home"! lf- 28 -'-121 gfwiwafs 5W.w.t.

Her most prominent virtue is her generosity, and many 21 fellow student can nod grateful agreement to that. Maybe her usual manner of liv- ing is not as noisy as the general run of us-Phil studied even if she hated to be accused of it. But you didn't have to count twice to be sure she was present for all the fun. She had one very distinctive hobby-she liked to invent a coiffure for every other day. ll XY!ym.1n Sr. PHILIPPA MARY BURKE Glee 1. 3. -ll Li.

"Sammy" of the "Tribe of Ben"- smart. modern, bewitchingly lovely. A bit of Puck and a bit more of Pan- his very pipes hidden in her charming voice. Het flair for design is ex- pressed in sketches that sweep into reality under her deft, imaginative stroke. Definitely versatile, "Sammy" does everything better than best. Her French would be tout a fait parisien at the Place de la Concorde, and her Spanish on las plazas de Madrid. Because many and oft are the times Ann goes Holy-Crosssward, for her we draft the most romantic of futures. .I ,- fs r ' ' f gif A XJ nh .1 x W,u. t ateX WM.awc..M.WWeme-ms.W.NtNew.Wastwcan-.wNwwmwuau uwwwiceicoyw- G .- 3 gk 1' Qu? omg, wQwM.wN NewNtx.tamawwxtM.aWNwWNawwa .X t xt X X t X weak A it C307 x 1, l .M x P.--1 -ec 'ggi ' ,..wQx " 'Di ' 1 With an all-embracing smile, Marie has greeted us each morning through- out our four years at the Elms. It didn't take us long to discover that underlying her genial nature is it keen, appreciative sense of humor. More than once that blessed gift came to the fore, and saved the day. She can be serious, too. Wlien it comes to apply- ing herself to studies or class duties! pre-sto, a very different Marie emerges and goes to work on her assignment.

WX XXNN rx Four short years ago "Dol0r" came to O. L. IE. with great expectations for the future, and a determination to realize them. That future has come and gone, and with it has come the fulfillment of these ambitions. She is determined and never wavers either in her ideas or her ideals. Her friendli- ness has endeared her to everyone- students and faculty alike. Her service as Vice-President of her class for four years, and as Editor-in-Chief of the Year Book give evidence of the prac- tical side of her nature.

As a "property man", actress, or party chair- man, we could depend on her to be an indefatigable worker, and to cheer us with her contagious laugh. Nor did she have to read Dale Carnegie to learn how to make friends-it seems to be her native quality. We think it is this latter gift that will prove a rich blessing in life.

Native talents are an ever ready smile, a smooth alto voice, which adds a pleasing harmony to every quartet, and a sense of rhythm displayed in her triangle tapping. Her cheery rejoinder of Hjeezle Beezlen and a few other choice ones give evidence of her orig- inality. If eyes have anything to do with efiiciency, Fordie has what it takes. It is with regret that we bid her au revoir.

Truck, Glide, Lambeth, she does all with a definite assurance. Popular, her "bon mots" are keen, and clever. "Gurus" laughing personality is felt at meeting -and that hrst impression remains. We always counted on her to keep the "Commuters' Haven" in gay mood. Still, "Gam" does not eschew more serious business. A real student, she is excellent in French. And should we speak of future, we leave "Marg" with a more than promising outIook it is a positive appeal for the best Life offers. MARGARHI' MARY GARVEY 146 King St. Springfield B. V. M.

If anyone has given the use of her car and her time willingly and frequently, it has been Mary. But that spirit of giving herself is at chgtractertistic trait.

"Ann" had a quiet, reserved nature that was only a camouflage for the nature that was fun-loving and riot-causing. She was a student, who really made friends of her booksg she was a musician, too, with a preference for baritonesg she was a friend who practiced sincerity.

From an endless store of knowledge gained by wide reading, she draws proof to back every point about a current something.

The leader of the "Tribe of Ben", answers to "Benny", supplies the sine qua non for our informal councils. Her speech, sprinkled with Gaelic wit, her skill in subtle repartee are un- matched. As editor of the French journal, "Chuchotements des Ormesu, "Benny's" supreme ease and familiar- ity with le francais were evidenced. Any dilliculties she meets are grist to the mill of her smooth casuality.

Ambitious and versatile, this typical Irish colleen should rind happiness and success. viii MARY AGNES U'C.ONNt JR ol Parkside St. S wringhe d B. V. bl.

It was a work well adapted to her generous, sym- pathetic nature. Calls less far-reaching than that of the missions found the same willing response, the call of classmates in scholastic dilhculties, the call of the sick and invalid for com- panionship. Kind and considerate, refined and resourceful, Margaret is one whose company is, and ever will be, a comfort and relaxation. -sw was - X X XX X X X WW N N X X X -...X ssWIRES X SXR NNmswMNXXsXXXXXXXXXsXs X mssNxmmsxxssm s N,.,..t,,cc, fN'4""' r'-"A"-""""'a-"0 'fr' "-t Mn-rv -slf x'aXXaalXsr'rX-Xt N "WWW-WX'W XXi'NN '- N' 'NNNX X W- sarss s sss-s SXsNQsXsXaY-XS ? .rg XQXXYWXXXXXRXX XX-XXX.tXXXtX X XXX.XXXXXXXtXXX..sXXtXw.X,..,.,-MXN-fe.xemf:e.fs..x-.w, b .www-f-sfo1.-X.-we-1wuX...v..X...snew-2-.-AX 3 1 -w N 'Q A R Q J J5,..XuXX 'zap ,,,....x '1.m.t:' .

R ' Z1 ngfgf A S Class Histor N the laboratory of the brilliant photographer, Ben. D. Veloping, the photographer and his assistant, john Quill, are busily at work developing four huge rolls of hlm which contain the candid shots of the activities of the incomparable class of 1939eGod bless 'em. fl Ben. D.: You know, john, we really shouldn't have left these films standing for four years. However, my new developing fluid is so powerful that we can see all these excellent shots clearly. Shall we try this one dated 1935? john: It's a logical start, these are Qahemj of great importance-Qahemj-of great importance-Qahemj our class, you know, Ben. Ben. D.: Here, john, what's this one? Freshman ofiicers, eh? Heh, heh, look at those uniforms-they were so long they didn't really need shoes or stockings. Look, there's Edna Lunney, Dolores Donlin, "Gert" Footit, and Eleanor Kelleher-good beginning. Got another one handy? jnlan: Here's one of our Freshman Reception. Why do Freshmen always have to be "hazed"? Ben. D.: I guess that makes them full-fledged college girls. By the happy expressions, I guess it couldn't have been too bad. Wl1at's here? john: Oh that? That's the Christmas Concert-isn't that "Anne" Carroll among the soloists? Ben. D.: No doubt. You know, even as Frosh, that class began to shine. What's this drippy one? jnhn: Oh, that was during the Hood, when wear our pumps every day so that if we developed water on the knee, we would be prepared. But it was a great success, hops aren't very good swimmers. we were Freshmen. They warned us to because it got us some free days, the day Ben. D.: This roll is a bit bigger. But then, Freshmen are always less conspicuous than Sophomores. The first big event was- john: The Sophomore Hallowe'en party. came through with tons of hay and corn stalks. And we had an operetta for entertainment. Thanks to "Fogey's" management that party marked us as a really live-wire class. Hay, hay! Some good farmer and true jnlvn: Yes, and the cider and doughnuts were good, too. I could put away three or four right now. I.et's go eat. Ben. D.: Not on your life! These are too good to let them wait. Here's the basket- ball team-what a team we had that year with Eleanor O'Herron as captain. See how red the juniors' faces are, when we defeated them in the "Public Game." funn: Some class! Here is a big one marked special. There's Marguerita Danahey as lead in "Pilates Daughter."-"I go mad." john: I swell with pride even now when I think how well she played Leah, and "Phil" Burke was our jack-of-all- properties. Ben. D.: What else have we here of our Sophomore year? fHeh, heh, I'm waxing poeticj. , Jo 'haf' -A aaaaagaaa -f ',, -- LZ Q Q " An! 62 john: Well, here's one of our Sophomore Hop, taken in the spring. We were the first class to persuade the Reverend Pillars of the Institution to let us have a Sophomore Hop. Ben. D.: Do I smell wisteria? john: You do! And what fun we had hunting it up. Therese Welch Agnew drove you and "Fordie" and "Sam" all over Hampden county to find it. But it was worth the trouble. Now let's eat. Ben. D.: What? With the junior year to bring up? Keep your mind off your stomach and lend me a hand. john: All right. Here's a big one. Ben. D.: Oh, the biggest one of the year. Prom committee, isn't it? That's Therese Welch Agnew, chairman, and President Lunney, ex-officio. There's "Sam" Carroll for music and me for decoration-remember the blue and silver roof garden ?-e and you, john Qheavens, how you've changed!j for tickets and programs, and "Fordie" for favors, and Eleanor O'Herron for refreshments! fOh, I knew that I shouldn't have mentioned that in your present conditionlj john: Even my hunger can't dampen my enthusiasm, when you mention our Prom! Ben. D.: Let's get on with some more. Here's another Christmas Concert and Passion Play. Say, did this class lead everything? john: Qmodestlyj Well-oh, here's Helen Barrett when she headed the Sodality Fashion Show, and "Rosie" Cummings as Tennis Champ. What a racket that was! Here's another. Ben. D.: Some daisies! john: Oh, that is "Sam" Carroll, "Molly" Martinik, "Annie" Lehr, "Fordie," "Gert" Fcotit, and Eleanor O'I-Ierron leading the Daisy Chain. That was commencement week. Ben. D.: Isn't this the "mount picnic" with the seniors? john: One of the nicest parties we ever had. And what a lunch-gosh I'm hungry, how about going out for a- Ben. D.: No! Hand me that last film, will you please? john: This one is labeled 1938-59. Seniors! And did we go to town on our last lap! Ben. D.: Lap-happy, huh? What's the first? Here, here, this one must be dated wrong? This looks like 1890. john: Oh, that was our Gay Nineties Party for Freshman Reception. We had even a barber shop quartet and floradora tiller review. Here's one of our first big starts as seniors-our Elmata Staff. Ben. D.: Didn't the Elmata dance come first? john: These faces seem familiar: "Sam" Carroll, Mary Larkin, you, Ben., and here I am. Ben. D.: And another attempt to raise money,-the rafile. "Keeg" knitted and we netted-a pun, my word-about sixty dollars on angora mittens. john: To get back to the Year Book, where's the one of the staff? Ben. D.: Right here on top. That's Dolores Donlin, isn't it? john: She was Editor-in-chief. She worried about the literary end of it. ' ii -'sl' 'i.

Ben, D.: These must be associate Editors: "Gert" Footit, Mary O'Shea, Margaret Riley, "Marg" Garvey, and "Sam" Carroll, art editor. No wonder the Elrnafa was so good that year! john: Let's hurry. I'm still hun- Ben. D.: Well, here's "Green Cheese" to satisfy you. That was the Senior Musicale for the Sodality Reception. john: Let's see, what's this big crowd? Ben, D.: That must be one of the lectures, l'll bet that's the night Monsignor Fulton Sheen packed the house. And here's another crowd. john: Oh, that's the committee in charge of the joint Concert with Holy Cross. You know, I never realized so many people knew they could sing until we arranged that. Ben. D.: Oh, it was for the Elmafa. eh? I recognize the Editor, the Business Manager, and "Sam" Carroll, the Glee Club President. And "Gert" Footit for publicity, Eleanor O'Herron for decorations, and Eleanor Kelleher headed the Reception Committee-lucky girl, receiving sixty-seven men at one time! Ben. D.: We must have one of the Senior Play somewhere about. What did you say was the name of it? john: "Charm School." Ben. D.: An appropriate name, judging from this picture. Loretta McCarty had the lead, did you say? john: And these worried people could be any Senior during exam week after a mid- night session with our friend the anaemic cricket in the shower room. Ben. D.: We seem to be near the end. lsn't this the grotto decked with flowers for Class Day? john: And flowers in Commencement week mean another thing-the Prom. Ben. D.: A social success with "Rosie" Cummings in charge with a swell committee of "Garve," "Phil" Burke, "Annie" Lehr, Mary O'Shea, Helen Barrett, and Eleanor Kelleher. It was such fun, it made leaving all the harder. john: Gosh, I'm still hungry, which reminds me of the Alumnae Banquet. The food was ummmh! Ben.

L. E. This program was presented by the Glee Club as a tribute to the twenty-year-out class of '59. One instant I was dreamily watching the leaping flames-the next I was dreaming strange dreams. I saw myself walking down a long deserted lane. Suddenly I heard a small voice crying to me to watch my step. I looked around, but, at first, could see no one. Then I felt a pull at my skirt and saw a tiny figure. I was about to apologize when I noticed two familiar dimples that could belong to one person only-"Dolor"! "What ever happened to you?" After an exchange of greetings, she told me that instead of getting bigger and bigger as she had always thought she would, she had become smaller and smaller. But she had established herself in a good business as the "Brains" of a midget show. We were walking along while we talked and presently we were in a thickly- settled village. A smiling woman carrying a violin approached us. Dolores responded to her genial greetings, and I was about to ask who she was when a haunting "snap, snap" of the violin strings caused me to turn, and in the retreating form I recognized Marie Courtney. When I turned back, I was again alone. I was starting heedlessly across the street, when a car leaped at me. Its horn screeched "Hank, Hank." Of course it was Claire McCarthy, who gaily shouted, "Hoiah!" In dreamlike fashion, I mounted myriad steps to an imposing mansion. I was just about to ring the bell, when the door mysteriously opened and two ghostly figures leered "Boo". To my amazement, it turned out to be only Mary O'Connor and Josie Albano still living their stellar roles in "Pilate's Daughter." Of the banquet that followed only one impression remains and that is of the big chocolate cake. I was just biting into it when unaccountably-you know how dreams are-it became Gertrude Footit. At my astonished exclamation "Gert" said, "Don't you remember, wherever theres chocolate cake, there am I." She had found her place in life as cake-tester for Edna Lunney's "Delicious Food Products." At this point in my dream, I was transported back to my fireside, gazing into a television set. A kaleidoscopic view of the news of the week flashed before me. Flash! The colorful commencement parade at West Point marching down Flirtation Walk, led by Rosemary Cummings. Her knitting needles were keeping time with the music of the band which followed. In the midst of the student band, I caught a glimpse of Marie Ford and her ten pupils playing the triangle. The parade was interrupted by a lively discussion of the possibility of the sixth dimension by two prominent scientists, Edna Morin and Helen Keegan. Even television sets will have commercials to hinder our enjoyable programs, if my dream comes true. For at this point, "Miss Fitzpatrick wished to announce the open- ing of her new studio. She will specialize in the technique of the black eye-ladies treated free of charge-24-hour service-no waiting."

The announcer again appears, tears streaming down his face, so touched was he by the music. In a voice shaken by emotion he begs us to use Gilbin's Fine Fireproof Finish, for all upholstery. It is especially recommended for use in automobiles. A masked figure now appeared and the voice of the Shadow spoke but the laugh that followed was not that of the Shadow but the infectious laugh of "Frannie" Mulholland. She stepped out of the television set into the room with me. "Have you heard," she said, "that two of our classmates are to broadcast tonight the results of their twenty years of study?" I hadn't heard but presently Lillian Moggio and Elizabeth McKenna appeared on the screen and announced in unison that after many years of scientific research they had discovered an invisible ink for examinations, for which they received the "Nobel Prize." Before "Frannie" disappeared I asked her if she had heard anything of our other classmates at O. L. E. The only one she was in close touch with was Marguerita Danahey whom she met daily at the studio. "Rita" had a private office from which all her broadcasts were made. The name on the door was "M. Danahey, P. S." fProfessional screecherj. A talent scout had discovered her at her last performance as "Leah" at O. L. E. She has amassed a great fortune and only few people know that all screeches heard are produced by M. Danahey. She had also heard that Margaret Riley had taken the place of the "Singing Lady" and was beloved by all for sweet and charming ways. Next on the program was a review of best sellers. This part of my dream is rather hazy. The first book was "The Importance of Being Honest"-experiences drawn from actual happenings in the life of the author, Eleanor O'Herron. Then came Eleanor Kelleher's sequel to "Tips to Treasurers," entitled "The Art of Collection." Carroll and McGahan's illustrated text- book for children dedicated to Shadrack, Mishad, and Bendigo, followed. In the latest edition of Who's Who, Miss Mary Martinik is "Who". She is famous for her draw- ings of men. A play by Philippa Burke, was given a favorable review-as were the costumes and designing for it done by the firm of Barrett and O'Shea. As this last report came over the set, the room where I was faded away and I was approaching the lane on which my dream had begun. But how different it was now! Brilliant lights and happy voices made the sight a joyous one. A sign directly in front of me read, "Mary Fogarty's Haven of Rest and Quiet." Before I had gone much farther a ticket office appeared, and a familiar voice asked, "How many, please?" Before I had a chance to reply, the voice continued, "Uno, dos, tres ?" When I inter- rupted with, "One, please," she seemed very much hurt. I made a note to find out who she was, I entered and Mary Fogarty, genial and smiling as usual, approached me. She informed me that the girl in the ticket office was "May" Mahoney. She had found this way of making use of her ability as ticket salesman and of her Spanish. The Haven of Rest and Quiet, however, proved to be a misnomer. The noise was deafening. Anne Gillooley was seated at a baby grand piano frantically and feverishly pounding on the keys. While near the piano a dancer was interpreting this weird music. Because of the swiftness of her movements, I had much difficulty in recognizing this 693 Lg E 'aihfif "Whirling Dervish" as Anne Lehr. Seated on the piano in true Helen Morgan style, was "Garve", singing in her own inimitable way-a way conducive neither to rest not quiet. To make the place more definitely a misnomer "Marg" Bresnahan was there directing these three mad "artists" with a series of "one, two, three's", beating out the tempo with a birch rod. An especially discordant note brought me back from the land of dreams. I woke with a start and found that the flames of my fire were now merely glowing embers. The station at O. L. E. was just signing off, and wishing the best of luclc to the class of '39 wherever they might be. LORETTA MCCARRY. Prophecy Un the Prophet by MARY ANN MARTINIK I-IILE travelling down the Great White Way I see before me a well-known name ablaze with countless splendrous lights. The name has been hailed as Broad- way's star of many seasons. This star is none other than our Loretta McCarty of college days. She has progressed rapidly from her many brilliant performances in our dramatic clubs. Now she is the most gifted actress of the American stage. Her dramatic triumphs are far reaching and from the blazing fires of her genius, she sends forth to the world a glow that bathes the daily lives of her admirers in a rosy glow that warms their hearts with a love for all that is beautiful in the realm of Thespian arts. f sses ,ry A 7: s My HOD 'affix' 'Y' Glhv Ehminrn Class Cfflcers Premlezzf-DEBORAH CLANCY Vire-Pre.ride111-DOROTHY C1.1FFoRu Tl'6r1.i'1lI'6l'-MARGARET MEEHAN SC7l'l'6fL1l'J'-AGNES GULLY 35,x55.QxgywXXxlXX5.x xx Wx . - , tg -'-5 5.3, .... .,..., ' x MMM,.MwMMx.,.X,X-,NXWNMM.ww ,xx.

Now after three years of close association with them, we find that our first attraction has turned into a deep and lasting admiration. Their fidelity to the college and their loyalty to their class, has been a shining example for all of us. To them, "class spirit" is not a mere word, it is a reality. Friendly, cooperative, fun loving-thus we found them and thus we leave them. In the academic field, they have distinguished themselves at our public assemblies. In the social field, they have gained for themselves well merited praise, for our various clubs boast of a goodly representation of juniors among their active members. In men- tioning social activities, we must slip in a word of congratulation to this class for the successful bridge and tea and the delightful Prom which they conducted this year. We must also add a very special "thank you" to the class of '40 for their work as the hostesses of our memorable Cap and Gown Sunday. Rest assured that "a very pleasant time was had by all." Our parting wish to the coming Seniors is aptly expressed in a little gem from the pen of Brian O'I-Iiggins. "May every blessing this life can hold Be yours in fullest measure, May content, that is better than gems or gold, Fill your future days with pleasure. May clouds ne'er gather above your way, Nor grief, nor gloom oppress you, And every hour and every day May God befriend and bless you."

Quiet, always dependable and rather conservative, they, the Sophomores, have won their way into all of our hearts. As valuable members of all of the social organizations of the college-giving to the Glee Club and Orchestra some of its most outstanding musicians and to the Dramatic Club some of its most talented per- formers, making the debates as well as all basketball and tennis games the interesting exhibitions of friendly inter-mural rivalry that they are-the members of the Class of '41 have distinguished themselves as one of the grandest classes ever enrolled at O. L. E. When they first acted as hostesses at the Halloween Party, which they gave in our honor, we realized that as a class, the Sophomores are enterprising and generous, as well as clever and active. The party was an ingenious one and in every way a social success. To add to all of their other accomplishments, their marvelous achievements in the scholastic field, makes us feel that without a doubt each and every member of our sister class is destined for great things. We realize your capabilities, your talent, and your efiiciency. May we later realize that all of our wishes for your success have been fulfilled. ,,,,,,.

It is the aura which they shed over all they meet. It is evident in their words and in their actions g-we meet them at a Prom, or we simply pass them in a casual greeting on the campus and their charm is always there, May you Freshmen preserve that spirit of joyousness always. With it, you can surmount all odds. In the more serious line of scholastic work our Freshmen have lived to the high and lofty standard, demanded by the college. They are active members of the various clubs, and always on hand for extra-curricular activities. Now, as we, the Seniors, prepare to leave our Alma Mater, and you, as Freshmen, continue your college life, so wonderfully begun, may we give this parting advice. Should you at any time lose hope and grow weary of the dilhculties inevitably met on the "royal road to learning," pause a moment in the Rotunda and read these words of the Blessed Mother who presides over the destinies of our college: I am the Mother of Fair Love And of Fear And of Knowledge And of Holy Hope. -Et't'!Il.Y.

For the past four years, under the vigilant care of Our Lady of the Elms, you have continued to prepare for your life work. We say "continued to prepare," because, according to our standards, the power of education begins in infancy, ends with death. Its fruits are ours in full only in eternity. Your life's work is not simply a matter of entering a profession. It is the sum total of your thoughts, words, and actions, weighed on the balance of eternity. You have completed your life work when you have reached your destiny. Your destiny is not man-given, but God-given. It is not of this world, but of the world to come. Your life work is completed only when you have reached your final goal-infinity of years with the Lover of souls. As Sodalists, you have additional graces to help you attain your end. You have the patronage and love of Christ's own Mother. No mortal pen has ever done justice to the most beautiful of all words, "mother". Think how much more powerless it is in acclaiming Christ's Mother! But remember this, Sodalists, she is always there, always listening for your "Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands." Mary is not only your patron, she is your model. In her you have the quintessence of every virtue. If you wish a truly strong and beautiful character, study Mary. If you are in doubt as to how to cope with a problem, study the life of Mary. If you wish to know the purest and deepest meaning of love, study the heart of Mary. If you are longing for the abiding peace of sanctity, study the soul of Mary. Yes, Sodalists, we expect you to be upright Catholics-not merely passive, but active. We expect you to prove yourselves loyal subjects of Mary and her Son by your every thought and word and act. We expect you to reach your destiny, too, Sodalists, on the high road of-"To jesus Through Mary." :ff f 15 f i ee l oo S 85 -'xg' I, -f'f'1,Q, Q 11:1 -f .2--N -:,:.:::s5ge:.::.-:.f: I if f- .

B. Debating Club HE world today is crying for men and women who can "think straight"-who can I view this changing, chaotic universe with broad tolerant minds, and yet keep the supreme goal of life in clear view. The world needs critics who can build on foundations of sound philosophy where now tottering superstructures are threatening to fall because of the unsound and destructive philosophy on which they are reared. It is the students of our Catholic colleges, who must undertake this task, and who must accomplish it, both for the future happiness cf their own lives and for the future well-being of their country. The task is tremendous, the means of accomplishing it comparatively few in number. Yet there is no better college function that aims toward this goal than the debating club. Here the knowledge gained through religion and through philosophy is tested when applied to world affairs. Here conditions and forces that shape our world may be compared and judged according to Christian standards. Thinking women of tomorrow, the leaders of the future, are trained, and formed through these societies. Society today has accepted informal speaking as its particular style. There is no better ground for the development of this social poise than the formal debating rostrom of the college debating clubs. Here the practice in forensic speaking according to deter- mined rules-that is with material studied beforehand, practiced with eloquence and stress on good diction and gestures-sets a background that cannot be equalled as a train- ing preparation for both formal and informal public and private speech. In naming the good effects of debating, however, we must not forget that poise, grace and ease in all company is one of the inevitable results. A finished speaker, one who can speak intelligently and at the same time with confidence and poise, is a boon today. Formal debating stresses these points and makes speaking an art. These are the tasks that the Mother John Berchmans Debating Society has attempted to accomplish. Its members, past and present, are living proofs that its work is well done. You will find that its graduates are Catholic "thinking" women-well able to cope with modern problems. To the students of the class of '59 who helped sustain the record of the club-we extend our sincere thanks. You have ably upheld the record of your predecessors. 5243"Vfz t""t f-,, .. .... .- A jg ...................................... 87, WM ? IIIISTNQTQT ' 1 'sf' 3 ' 1 5... .

In our own dramatic club we have used a double-headed dart with which to reach our mark. One of the aims is to train young untried artists in the rudiments of acting-and the other aim is to give them a knowledge of the American stage and its personalities. Acting through all ages has had a universal appeal for people, and it is that appeal that drives youth toward the stage and footlights. It is but Fitting and proper then, that in college the young be given an opportunity to test and develop their talent. The club selects plays that can be easily handled by an amateur troupe, and through friendly assistance and advice the essentials of acting are learned. The atmosphere of the theatre is carried out as far as possible, and calls into play those who are interested in the back-stage work of the theatre. The audience are the critics, and at the same time the students of the little theatre. Through these means our productions are both enter- taining and instructive, and our theatre is our workshop. The legitimate theatre is claiming the spotlight today with a glamour it has not had in a decade. Young people are vitally interested in stage personalities and in the plays that are currently popular in our major cities. The dramatic club has attempted to foster this growing interest by reviewing popular plays, and their leading stars, believing that a knowledge of the people who form the world of make-believe will awaken interest. And now the time has come for the class of '39 to bow to a grand finale. Their final curtain call brings back many members who have excelled in acting, and who have been active in the work of the dramatic club. Marguerita Danahey may well be the first to graciously acknowledge the applause of both the society, and the school. Her work as Leah in Pilate's Daughter will long be remembered. Gertrude Footit, Loretta McCarty, Margaret Fitzpatrick and Marie Courtney, too, deserve our applause and special thanks for their work during four years. Our society has had the advantage of a capable directress and to her the society and the class of '39 extend thanks for her work in fostering young hopes. sv-at-:Q Nmmws.. ,.

If you enjoy the companionship of good fellows, you are doubly welcome. Good fellowship and sportsmanship are the watchwords of the society. The spirit of friendly competition, that is fostered as a training for youth, is found in the spirited games that annually take place among the four classes. The world today cries "Let them learn to take it", and the best classroom for the inculcation of that lesson is the sportsfield. There the contestants are taught to win with modesty, and to lose with grace. Clean, hard playing and team work are qualities demanded of the members of the various teams, and a more splendid training for the winning of future laurels is hard to find. The spirit of contentment with fellowman, and the thorough enjoyment of social life are stressed, too, through the activities of the club. The friendly banter of a club lunch, the feeling of closeness in the singing of old, familiar songs, the hearty cheer for a victorious team, the friendly hand of sympathy to tired losers,-all these tie very firmly the knot of friendship. To Miss Long the club owes a debt of gratitude for her persistent, untiring efforts to carry on the work of the club. Her spirit will remain as a treasured keepsake to those, who knew and worked under her. The class of '39 will not be forgotten for the part played by its members in the club's activities. Theirs was the spirit of leadership, and theirs, the energetic enthusiasm which did much to advance the club. Eleanor O'Herron, Eleanor Kelleher, Margaret Fitzgerald, Frances Mulholland, Mary Mahoney, all deserve a cheer for the carrying of their class and the club to many victories during our four years.

Truly heavenly it was, like unto that first "Silent Night," when angels announced the blessed birth at the sacred Inn. Then, in April, the Musical Clubs surpassed their former successes, when in collaboration with the Holy Cross Glee Club and Philharmonic Orchestra, they presented a public concert in Veritas Auditorium at the Elms. The program was excellent in every way. The combined clubs were under the direction of Professor Edward Bouvier of Holy Cross.

From the scholastic viewpoint, it supplements and makes more practical the work of the classroom. The average student is too prone to think of French as a to the classroom, a subject whose essence is intense memory work on subject, peculiar verb forms and rules of grammar. However, French, to be worth while, must be an the everyday life of those who study it. Otherwise, it is obvious that lacking the vital factor, showing the real meaning and beauty of the French language. At Our Lady of the Elms, this factor is Le Cercle Francais. In Le Cercle, French integral part of there would be is spoken exclusively not only at the business meetings, but at all social functions as well. Membership is open to all, and there are many and varied activities to encourage the students to join. The interesting entertainments, songs, games, debates, parties, and initiations stimulate a friendly atmosphere, which encourages conversation and helps to develop the student socially. The journal reports on items of interest in the school, and at the same time encourages writing on the part of the students. The final outcome is the training of the ear and tongue in the living speech, which means the mastery of the foreign idiom. 5tfQ5'3fj5.3,, ,Sy v, -'- VI1 Y -, V re l E' wg 5,- ,, 3, . - ' 1 xx 'Y f 712 fimeffl fn- Riff .su-R-1 A ,. . , , . 1. , ' ff' yi 3, mf ,gg ,A X i fe.'.fff 'n,,4 . ?fi9?f?X'W'.'J'T?'i . . 2 ' 'M Q -xc af- . ,'-.v:56q7v9wb:,-'R ' ,qv 5 X-fvQ'3i6Ra' ff'0'1'?

Their culture is Spanish and they speak the Spanish language. They are our neighbors with whom our future is closely linked and with whom we should be, literally, on speaking terms. In the Spanish language are written some of the greatest literary masterpieces of the world. The Spanish dramatists, novelists, poets, and essayists of the past and of the present rank with the best of France and England. The language, literature, and intellectual life of our American neighbors, who have inherited much from Spain, as we have from other European nations, merit our study. Students of Spanish at our college realize the benefits to be accrued from a study of Spanish and correlate their formal study of the Castillian language, literature and life with an informal, practical application of it at their monthly gatherings of El Corte Castellana. Following the regular parliamentary beginnings of every meeting, there is a monthly social hour. All members of the club participate in plays, games, songs, and many other types of entertainment, which afford opportunities of conversing in the foreign language, and of applying in a practical way, the vocabulary, and rules of grammar, which have been learned in a formal manner in the classroom. The Corte is particularly fortunate in having as very active and valuable oihcers the Senoritas Carmen and Irma Padilla of Porto Rico, who have labored unceasingly to make the club one of the outstanding social organizations of our college. we f- :,::.:::.-:zzz .:::::::: ::: : efrrrrgggggic: :::: is gi -'--z as 1-::::::::::::::: Q.-rex::::::::mmx-mmwqtxsxwsww-fx, C977 s Nags ,..

Exponents of so-called progressive education discard it because, they say, it contributes little toward furthering "social efiiciencyf' We are not in accord with this trend of thought, and we feel that we have ample proof to substantiate our position. First of all, even our opponents agree that Latin has a cultural value. That argu- ment in itself justifies the place of Latin in the school curriculum. Remarkable as this scientific age is, it has not yet produced a machine that will imbue culture into an individual. Culture can be obtained only by developing and by improving, according to educational standards, all our God-given faculties. Deep thinking along logical lines, varied reading, worthwhile contacts,-all these have their place in cultural training. It is essentially putting life on a selection and rejection basis,-taking the good, leaving the evil. This cannot be accomplished overnight. It requires time, patience, open- mindedness, discrimination, powers of evaluation. True culture enables man to see life in its fullest and best sense. If knowledge of the Latin language, and acquaintance with Latin literature, enables us to find a richer significance in life, why not seek them? The world has many representatives of the "brainstorm country." It needs more of the clear hemisphere, where logic, thought, and appreciation rule harmoniously. Our success in the business or professional world is per se based on the habits of our mind. The mind, like the body, can best be trained by exercise. In our physical education we aim at the development of the whole body. In attaining this end there must be variation in our exercise. So, too, in training our minds, we must develop the whole mind. To bring about this development, a variety of mental exercises is necessary. Classical scholarship is an effective means to this end, because it puts into action all our faculties. What about the practical value of Latin? Let us take but a cursory glance at some of the vocational helds. The now flourishing lawyer really made his debut in the Latin class room where he pleaded the cause of his translation. The doctor made his first diagnosis and worked out his first prognosis, the hrst time he put an English sentence into Latin. The chemist who faithfully learned conjugations still deals with memorized forms of symbols, which speak to him in a mystical and wondrous tongue. The writer laid the foundation for all his future success by observing the close relation- ship between the meaning of words and the context, by noting the subtlest shades of meaning. The psychologist received his first insight into the nuances of thought, when he analyzed the thought development of mighty intellects. By learning the rules of syntax and by developing the ability to apply these rules readily and correctly, the nurse opened new vistas to herself. The teacher who stood in awe of the wisdom and of the beauty of the classical verities, must now transmit the lessons she gleaned from them and from other fruitful sources. Men in the world of business can use their powers of keen observation and close reasoning to good advantage, for "the trained mind can master the problems of business better than the untrained." So, it is for the members of the Classical Club, who had the good sense and clarity of vision to recognize the cultural, intellectual, and practical values of Latin, that the Class of '39 prays "Pax et benedictio Dei descendant super vos et maneant in vitam aeternamf' smxwmamuazmmm fe L. ,.. ..,. ...g...,n.::...: ..... 1 .

"Science"-that magical little word that has unfolded for us new worlds of health, of knowledge, of comfort! The members of the club prepare papers on some phase of scientific investigation before the public today. Informal discussions are held regarding the relative merit of this research work. Illustrated lectures bring before the eye the rapid strides science is making, and add to the popularity of the club. This age is essentially "science conscious." Even educators and philosophers are trying to reduce life to scientific data. Is it not important, then, that young Catholic women acquaint themselves not only with the broad scope of this comprehensive subject, but also with its limitations? The gates that lead to the vast field of science are Hung open. The class of 1939 sincerely hope that present and future members of the Science Circle, guided by Truth Itself, will enter those portals and profit by the richness of the store awaiting them. 11 ", 5 'KYW3 vgr Philosophy Club Cfflcers Senior Prefidezzf-'MARY LARKIN Slwmr Vife-Prefidenf-FRANCES MULHOLLAND Senior S6t'l'FfdI'J'fMARGARET RILEY lllllffil' Premlezzf-VIRGINIA ADAMS jnzzzor Vive-Pramideal!-AGNES GULLY fflllffll' Sef1'efJz'y-HELEN GORMAN ,....m.,..mmMm NX S :r ie ei ,1 ,..5,R.-K ., , 5 is H A- wg r Y, W -' -w' 6 J iwww Ri Wheat: 'Y' 11035 Philosophical Clubs HE responsibility of preparing for true leadership descends as a solemn obligation I upon Catholic college girls the moment they enter a Catholic school where there is but one Head Master, Christ. Their contribution to the welfare of society and to the spread of the Kingdom of God upon earth depends upon the studies they pursue and the spirit in which they pursue them. Two things are essential for the Catholic leader: a perfect knowledge of the faith and a thorough training in its application to present-day conditions. From the very beginning, apologists have stressed the importance of a firm rational foundation for faith. Through her classes in religion, the student in a Catholic college becomes acquainted with the truths of her faith, through her classes in philosophy, she learns how to prove from reason the existence of God, the fact of a human soul and its qualities, and the general laws governing thought and the pursuit of truth. To define philosophy adequately is about as difficult as the unravelling of the Gordian knot. Each succeeding age, each contemporary school offers a distinct explana- tion of the term. Although so different, these distinctions have the same essential fundament underlying, which might End expression thus, that philosophy is the science of things in their ultimate causes, in so far as these can be known by the light of natural reason. The object of this science is the universe, and it ever seeks to know the reasons not only for the existing, but even for the possible and impossible. Its purposed object is the universe. Its Supreme object is God. The Catholic college girl studies philosophy for two main reasons:-first, to train her for true leadership in the world in which she is to take her place, secondly, to make fertile and enriched the mind, the barren soil which philosophy receives, by the study of the problems presented for consideration and by the intellectual effort required for their solution. Let us first consider the effects accruing from the magnitude of its intellectual view. The achievements of the other sciences become insignificant when compared with the seemingly superhuman accomplishments of philosophy. Again, the human mind ever seeks answers to the innumerable questions that present themselves as to the origin of the universe, man, life, etc. Students are fascinated by the mystery that ever enshrouds them, and are not satisfied until they grasp the reward of their endeavor, a reward attainable in the study of philosophy. Philosophical study is further disciplinary in that none of its results can rest on mere authority. Each individual student must exercise his own activities to reach the dogmatic results. For example, the fundamental facts in astronomy or chemistry are given the student outright and so only the result is gained. The mental processes which originally led to the result are not imposed upon the student. Inasmuch as it is the process which chiefly imparts the discipline, it is seen that just as far as results are gained, exclusive of the process, the most important end of education, namely, that of developing man himself, is lost, or rather, not attained. With the study of philosophy such is not the case. We cannot separate the product from the process. We cannot reach the result of the author unless we go through the precise mental process, or a similar one, whereby he reached his result. In the study of the other sciences, a certain degree of mental training is attainable, but in the study of the "Queen of the Natural Sciences''-philosophy-man finds the mental training which leads to a full development of all of his intellectual powers.

Many a time we had posed in the Seniors' gowns, and sighed enviously for the time when we would have earned the right to wear them. In a beautiful ceremony in our chapel, we received the blessing of the Sacred Host from the hands of His Excellency, Bishop O'Leary. It was an added pleasure to have for our speaker, the Reverend Frederick McCarten of the Society of jesus. In his address, Father McCarten impressed upon us the obligation of following in our own lives, and of teaching to others the principles of the true Christian Education which we have received here at Our Lady of the Elms. Later, when we were presented to His Excellency, our Most Reverend Bishop, we again received his blessing, and heard repeated his fervent prayer that we never fail the trust that is placed in us, the wearers of the Cap and Gown.

L. B4 Do you remember? "Come Ta- Ra- Ra-Boom-De Ay" in the grand old way, We've a party planned for the Nineties Gay- Girls dressed in ruffles, plumes, and sashes, Beaus in checked trousers and wild moustachesf' After a candle light supper in O'Leary Hall, at tables frivolously decorated in red and white, we introduced the Freshmen to their first song fest on their first "Elms Night." They're a grand group of girls, aren't they? Remember what good sports they were, when we all went over to the gym for the much dreaded initiation? There was a singing contest, and there were games, and they willingly did whatever was asked of them. The freshmen were not the only ones to perform. We had also a Senior "Potter Palmer," accompanied by a stylish belle in plumes and sashes, a bustle and leg-o-mutton sleeves. Then to the tune of "Strolling Thru the Park One Day," a group of Floradora Girls went through a tiller routine. When each and every newcomer to the halls of O. L. E. had been introduced to the three upper classes the beaus and belles swung into an old fashioned cotillon followed by the schottische, polka and waltz. Then came the newer "Lambeth Wt1lk" and the "Big Apple." So did a trip to the dim days of the "Nineties" end with an uproarious "truckin" back to the newer, if not gayer days of the "terrific thirties."

The gym was transformed into a barn,shay was strewn on its floor: lanterns and pumpkins were hung, and sophomores, clad in black and orange welcomed the seniors and the college faculty to their first party. In such a setting, it is no wonder that the Halloween spirit ran high. Songs, dances, specialty acts, a grand march, costume prizes, pranks and the recognized fall refreshments,-cider and doughnuts-filled the evenings bill. The highlight of the evening, however, came for us as the seniors, each bearing her gift and favor, bade us good evening, assuring us that our party was the "best ever."

From this AH retreat, we derived not only spiritual benefits, but many practical applications of our religious training as well. Father McCarten's treatment of modern problems was a fitting conclusion for our collegiate retreats, since it prepared us to face every-day questions from a modern Catholic viewpoint. The last clay of the retreat, he called a conference in the lounge of the members of the Senior class. We discussed the theatre, travel, current books and modern art. We shall remember Father McCarten for his outstanding personality, and genial humor, as well as for the spiritual benefits we derived from his conferences. if f W e he ' wr. gi C1145 'Y' f""'c MidfWinter Lecture Series 9 N these days of "isms", propaganda, accusations, repercussions, and clouded issues, J it is more than usually necessary for the Catholic college student to have a clear idea of the Church's stand on modern problems. We must know and understand her theory, if we are to be able to discuss intelligently questions of the day without being led astray by illogical thinking. Realizing this we are, indeed, deeply grateful to our faculty for bringing to us in our senior year outstanding speakers, who treated Catholism and Americanism in masterly fashion. To those men, each a specialist in his own field, we will always be indebted for their clear and logical expositions. These Friday night lectures were given by members of the faculty of the Catholic University over a period of six weeks. On january 13, the series opened with a lecture by Dr. George Johnson on "Catholicism and Youth." The following week Monsignor Edward jordan gave a correlating talk on "Catholicism and Education." The subject of "Catholicism and Philosophy" was treated by Rev. Ignatius Smith, O. P. Monsignor John Haas analyzed the labor problem in "Catholicism and Labor." Closely allied with this was Monsignor Ryan's lecture on "Catholicism and Social Action." The series was closed on February 17 with the lecture of Monsignor Fulton J. Sheen on "Catholicism and Communism." We may not remember every fact presented. Undoubtedly, many salient details have escaped us, but it has been indelibly impressed upon our minds that our Church has today, in this hodge-podge of conflicting philosophies, definite, just, and reasonable theories for solving modern problems of social and political life.

Foley, P. R., the venerable pastor of the Sacred Heart Church in Holyoke. Monsignor Foley needs no eulogy from us. He has proven himself an exceptional churchman in all his assignments, and these have extended from Williamstown in the far Berkshires, to Blackstone Valley. Under his pastoral direction, the Sacred Heart, his last parish, has thriven. I-Ie added a new gem to the parish group-a community hall and gymnasium, unequalled among such buildings, and exquisitely and practically equipped for daily utility. Builder, organizer and inspiration to any work for Gods people, Monsignor Foley's activities were not strictly parochial. For a decade of years he has served our College as Trustee. Nor once was he missing, when the occasion called for his presence. His was not merely passive service. Each year brought us a freshman from the Sacred Heart, sponsored by Rt. Rev. Monsignor Foley. His interest in science is evidenced by the rich equipment of our laboratories-the gift of our beloved Mon- signor Foley. One of his last acts was to establish a permanent fund for a scholarship, to be awarded to a member of the Senior class of the Sacred Heart School. His name will be remembered each june at the yearly distribution of prizesg for the Assembly prizes are awarded from a fund established by Monsignor Foley. May his name be reverently and prayerfully recalled often at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. YF MR. MR. MR. MR. MRS. MR. MR. MR. MR. MR. MR. MR. MR. MR. MR. MRS. MR. MR. MR. MIQS.
