But Time, so beneficent in its gift of these years, does not insure the per- fect and detailed remembrance of them. That they may live forever in our hearts, We have inscribed upon these pages the treasured moments of our days at Our Lady of the Elms. In doing so, we are attempting to forestall the eradicating hand of Time, and take from it, what it may one day take from us. Recorded memories never die, and We thus be- come the fortunate possessors of an invaluable repertoire. onfenffs INTRODUCTION DEDICATION BOOK I Pictorial BOOK II Faculty BOOK III Classes BOOK IV Activities BOOK V Commencement xiff kaxff A! ifnlllfkix 1 lj iik BOOK VI Directories 571 rjtgfillmga ' - if L' -C ' P -2 Y .f 'Q . , , Q -1 5 I r fi T J -is 9' , " 2 H f-, wfg. ,1 'Qc , f,r,., 5, Q, R ,te U ft: ,W - u -ff ' 1 ' 7- J fe was LA ,R .w Lf.

To none more revered and more honored could We offer this treasured record of four happy years at Our Lady of the Elms, than to you, our Bishop. Nine consecutive classes pre- ceding us have availed themselves of this same privilege, and we now ask you, Your Excellency, to accept our token of sincere devotion and respect with this, our annual. We present it to you with the pledge of loyalty and devotion as the tenth link in the Elmata chain of our college, whose establishment but thirteen years ago was the fulfillment of your cherished ideal and fondest hope. Encouraged by the inspiration of the past, we see the future full of promise. As lights ever leading onward to our respective goals, the ideals of Our Lady of the Elms will be our guide. That their directing influence may help us to bring new glory to our Alma Mater is our fervent prayer. The sculptor justly admires the finished product of his handy the artist's look of love and pride betray the secret satisfaction of his soul. May we not hope that your Excellency will regard with especial affection this newest group of your graduates? And, if the statue repays the sculptor for his painsg if the- artist forgets X2 ynhn , W ,A in the joy of his accomplishment the li 4,f92j"'E labor and sacrifice it involved, so E QQ L may we be to you an added source of A A comfort and pride. ln testimony of our '3 sincere devotion, therefore, we dedi- Y! cate our Elmata, asking that the hands 73 which receive it be raised in bene- diction on those who humbly offer it.

Show'r blessings on our Alma Mater dear Our Lady of the Elms, we pray, Thou, Seat of Wisdom, place Thy seal ' A pledge of truth alway. ln fragrant garlands, Queen of Love, Entwine our hearts with Thine, Each flow'r a virtue from above, Gift of Thy Son, Divine.

Librarian Page 3 5 Page 36 Ml' Coffege Those of us who can claim Our Lady of the Elms as "Our Col- lege" 'justly glory in this privilege. lt is l'Our College" to our Most Reverend Bishop, its guiding light, as the continuous fulfillment of a dream, it is 'lOur College" to every member of the faculty, as each contributes so unselfishly of his best to the promotion and develop- ment of true culture, which is our Catholic heritage, it is "Sur College" to the Sisters of St. loseph who ultimately make it possible, and who strive so earnestly through it to keep aloft the Catholic standard of womanhood in a world too prone to reject our criterion. The first college for Catholic women in Western Massachusetts, it strives daily to be able to say in very truth l am the "Mother of fair love and of fear and of knowledge and of holy hope." First and foremost in its teaching, in class, by word, and out of class, by ex- ample, the principle of "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His justice" is the motivation of all its activities. Through religion courses that meet, rather than avoid, the problems of our modern life, through sound philosophy which insures an adequate prepara- tion for a world which today is so utterly lacking in this essential point, it provides the necessary equipment to face the other arts and sciences. With a firm faith and a sure philosophy, the great marvels of the physical world become numerous manifestations of the power of the Creator. They lift us to God, and make us realize more deeply that l-le is in all things by I-lis sustaining force and that they are all dependent upon Him. What the future history of "Cur College" will be depends upon us, the graduates. This institution, Mary's College, shall never fail in the Divine work of Catholic education. lt is up to us not to fail, on our part. We are the products of a great Catholic culture. lt is our obligation to spread it, to make the world aware of the ideals of our Lady of the Elms. We are the tenth class to be graduated. Let us tell gg-, 5-.ja-ig others of it. We have received some- thing eternally true. Let us not be self- ish with such a gift, but let us spread .if ' this great treasure and let us give to the -i52313QL-i5Q-Z - world living examples of ideal Elms I-IglQIg.gQgIg-g.ji,!, ? women. We know what they should be, and let us strive so to live our principles "-fif:fjf:I:IjI: that others may be lead to adopt the "'Z'IgZgZg standards of "Our College." Sidferd ofsainf odela The Sisters of St. loseph constitute what the Church calls a Teaching Order. Does that term suggest to you, dear reader, the fact that these Sisters teacheand competently, too-only those branches of knowledge which make up one's intellectual equip- ment for life? This is but one phase of their program. Have you ever considered what a play might be, were the actors uncostumed, the scenery lacking, the music and lights omitted? True, the plot would be clear, through the actions and the dialogue, but too much would be left for individual interpretation. The whole impression would be one of inadeguate preparation and presentation. For an institution of learning merely to provide intellectual eguipment is to offer nothing more than the sceneless and empty stage. Something is missing. Life is not a drab existence of three hundred and sixty-five days, each day in turn a unit of twenty- four hours. That is life's mathematical pattern, but life has its more important spiritual and social aspects. Why do some minutes suggest eternity, while others come and are gone as quickly as April's shower? Why? Upon our use of those minutes hinges the success of our lives. The former are the ones for which we need a special training other than that to be found in books. lt is then that the well-rounded education serves its pur- pose. We must learn to face life, not to retreat from it. The develop- ment of this particular ability is the definite training of the Sisters of Saint loseph, their invaluable contribution to the lives of their students. Because of it, we see life rightly and meet it honestly, and for it we owe them a debt never to be repaid. They have taught us, above ' all else, the lesson of accepting in a spirit of resignation and faith those harder ex- periences which constitute a part of every human history. They have shown T us how to meet them and to master them, T that they may become sources of ever- lasting blessings. For the thorough prep- i aration, both intellectual and spiritual, that they have given us we ask them to accept our sincere gratitude. l 4 Page 37 Page 38 bil' 6l,I"QIfltff Dear Fathers and Mothers, when you see us, your daughters, walking up the aisle as college graduates, what thoughts surge through your minds? Do you recall that day, just a few years ago, which saw the high school student suddenly transformed into a college Freshman? lust yesterday, you think?i Or, to some, does it seem eons ago? . Perhaps, dear Parents, you are thinking of the summer that followed upon our Freshman Year. We had changed. You were conscious of it, and so were we. We had grown up-or thought we hadfwhile you talked, father to mother, speculating on the cause and hopeful of the result. Have you forgotten the girl who returned to you after her months of experience as a Sophomore? What a friendly person she was that summer! Do you remember? We had finished the experi- mental stage-we had tried college and it had tried us. We were confident, so confident! After a noisy, happy, vacation we enrolled as luniors, and the following lune found us older, wiser, and better prepared for the triumphant Senior Year. Now that we have analyzed your thoughts, dear Fathers and Mothers, would you like to know what ours are? While you rem- inisce in parent fashion, we are silently paying tribute to you, hoping that the joy of today is more than recompense for your years of sacrifice-and sacrifice there must have been in many ways. ln the manner of modern youth, shying from more than trite expressions of appreciation, we conceal our emotions. But if you look deeply into our eyes, the mirrors of our souls, you will find there an unspoken message for you-a message full of gratitude and love. ii 0Ci0l" 6Ll"l'VLO g and, locfor Smifk ln September We were formally introduced to two men whom We have learned to respect and admire, Doctor Walter R. Carmody and Doctor R. Dale Smith. They are truly fine characters. We extend to them our heartiest welcome, and we Wish them happiness at Qur Lady of the Elms. They have been successful in their efforts to impart to us the true value of the sciences, for We feel that under their Wise guidance we have accomplished much. We are surely grateful for their interest and effort in our behalf. A year of almost daily contact has made us realize their high intelligence and appreciate the - privilege of having them as instructors in the fields of Biology and Chemistry. lt has been through them that our first science paper was established. We have enjoyed their lectures immensely, and it is our hope that many other students at the College of Our Lady of the Elms will be privileged to benefit by their courses. - Page 39 Page 40 Classes-a Word so suggestive of many different types of girls. A Freshman? Yes. One can tell her as she walks about campus. There passes a Senior. Four years wiser?-Rather forty times that! And the Sophomores? They are marked by security from the responsibilities of the Senior Year, confident after the salutary experiences of the Freshman Year. We see the luniors, eager to dethrone the Seniors, but con- scious of the loss of companionship of three years' duration. So, in this college world all our own, we have these individualities, each girl of a different pat- tern, each girl showing the moulding influence of the time spent within these walls of Our Lady of the Elms. 00K Ill 'Six ,Ui - 1 X A fl J 4 S "' 41-fgqlx.

Following the procession of the entire student body, led by the lower classes, with the officiating clergy at the rear, Rev. Edward l. Keating, S.l., of Holy Cross College, recently returned from Louvain University, Belgium, delivered the sermon-so magnificent that we never shall forget it. Solemn Benediction followed and Constance Stiles, our most capable President, led the recessional from the chapel to the Liberal Arts Building, where the lunior Class acted as hostesses for the Seniors and their guests, and where the A Cappella Choir entertained with a few of its favorite selections. To appreciate most sincerely this memorable occasion, we wish to carry away with us a few excerpts from Father Keating's beautiful sermon in which he told us that the enrolment in the academic cap and gown meant new honor, new reverence, and new responsi- bility. Looking down through the pages of history, we find woman formerly a slave, and, again, many centuries later, we see her hon- ored, reverenced, and loved.

Wom- en were made by their Creator to be more gentle, to have a finer sense of understanding, to be more susceptible to human needs, to exemplify all virtues, but in history those characteristics were misinterpreted by mankind and virtue was trampled upon because it was considered weakness. Father made a direct application to us as Seniors. We had to face personal questions. What are we to our class, to our com- panions, to those at home, to our social acguaintances? They know what we are supposed to be, but are we honestly measuring up to that standard? We stand before the world. The world recognizes us as Catholic graduates, it knows our descent, our heritage, and our blood. The challenge of Cap and Crown Sunday will always ring in our memories. Seniors of this College of Cur Lady of the Elms, show the world how to act, convince it of what you are, show it a way of life that knows no death, show the world that it is a terribly satisfying thing to be good. Show the world that you are spiritual dynamos in public life, show the world by your lives that you are the succes- sors of the truly holy women, nay, of Mary herself, and thus daugh- ters of the Queen of Heaven. Page 73 Page 74 l uniors with three constructive years behind them find it hard to analyze their feelings. Eagerly and yet reluct- antly they face the complimentary re- sponsibilities of a Senior Year. They are happy in the contemplation of the added dignity which will come to them, but wistful at the thought of three years so swiftly gone. luniors, guard care- fully each golden moment of your Senior Year, in order that you may set it aside as a treasure worthy of a place in the crown which Time is weaving for you.

Didn't that sound like music to the ear? We were fast approaching the coveted goal, which like the distant flicker of a candle had beckoned us as Fresh- men, that goal which glowed more brightly on the ardent Sopho- mores, and which had now become a steady flame of encourage- ment as we assumed the role of luniors. Yet this goal meant some- thing more. lts attainment would compel us to say good-bye to years that had given us new friends, new ideals, and new avenues of thought. We gave slight heed to this idea, we had another year before we were to come face to face with its full reality. The election of Class Officers meant to us only a renewal of faith in those who already had represented us. You see, they were all re-elected. The luniors, still aware of their responsibilities, took active part, either as officers or members, in the various clubs. Repre- sentatives of the Class held offices this year in the Cercle Francais, La Corte Castellana, the Science Club, the Dramatic Society, the Debating Society-and far into the night. This year, too, each lunior followed the course which she had selected as the most suit- able for her individual capacity. We found them in rubber aprons, dissecting specimens or examining the precipitates of a solution, we found them deep in the enjoyment of the English Essayists or his- torical personages. Still others we heard muttering half aloud, 'Taime le son du cor." Although we were divided as far as studies were concerned, there was no division in our interests and in our loyalty. Though we shall not be the largest Class to receive the diploma, we hope that a distinct unity will give us more than the strength of numbers. Under the capable direction of Miss Mary Leary, the Annual lunior Tea met with social and financial success. Assisting her were Mary lane Nesbit, lane Keegan, Muriel Hourihan, and Ruth Cough- lan. The various committees shouldered their duties with an air of determination and we assure them that they deserve much credit. The crucial moment which comes in the life of every lunior finally arrived. February 7th had been set as the date for the lunior Promenade. Qrganization was necessary, so the first step was the selection of committees. Our choices were: General Chairman, Elinor Somers, Music, Ann Cv. Stone, Favors, lrma Padilla, Invita- tions, Katherine Walsh, Refreshments, Mary Shea, Publicity, Evelyn Downey, Decorations, Mary Ellen Dowling. Page 76 But that was only the beginning. The real work followed. Every lunior worked as ardently and as furiously as if her very honor de- pended upon this one night. And didn't it? Every night for a week our fellow collegiennes saw a group of anxious young people set out for that chamber of horrors--the mammoth gym, bare and sans appareil, crying to be dressed up prettily for the occasion. There were certainly troubles galore. The ceiling refused to remain seven feet above the floor. But we were just as stubborn and just as determined, and we finally won. Have you ever paneled two sides of a wall, practically extending into the unknown, with white paper which has a marvelous aptitude for tearing? Heres our advice. Don't try it. Two nights before the prom, the curtain which cuts off the unnecessary section of the gymnasium, was ready to be hung. The work was beautifully completed, when alas! the wire snapped, and the curtain fell, as did our hearts and our faces. However, it was not a continual state of havoc, and the project of decoration was finally completed. The seventh of February found us practically swimming in the torrents of rain which fell with a vengeance. The hems of our skirts T , 1 2 9 i 1 Page 77 Page 78 ,Qw- might have been damp, but certainly our spirits were not affected. The gymnasium had been converted into a picture of old Spain. It was fiesta time. Spanish dancing girls with their gay, ruffled cos- tumes lined the walls, a ceiling of bright red fringe was overhead, and to make the picture complete, balloons, confetti, and streamers were everywhere. The committeewomen had their pictures taken for this Year Book in the course of the gala affair. They look guite happy, don't they? The last number on the program found us con- tent with the success, but just a bit heartsick to think that our night of nights had come to a close. But what happy memories we can triafure through the years. That makes all the effort seem worth- w ie. The Basketball season found the luniors tripping on the floor once again I and I do mean tripping. But it is all in the spirit of fun and goodsportsmanship. We have these gualities so what more would we ask? UA decent score," one bright-eyed lunior answered, when guestioned about the result of a game, but we shall ignore her tactlessness. "Spring, spring, beautiful spring" gave us the Passion Play and the operetta 'Cvypsy Moon." Wtiere were the luniors? Need we - answer? Ruth Coughlan again played Claudia, daughter of Pilate, and such a lovely Claudia she was. Katherine Walsh won the coveted role of Rebecca-we all know what Kay can do with her histrionic ability. Other members of the Class made their appear- ance in "Pilate's Daughter", taking part in the A Cappella Choir which contributed of its best to the drama. Miss Eileen Heffernan was especially effective in showing us with such remarkable skill how to form the lips when singing "noo". CP. S. We always wanted a snap of her holding that perfect pose during Cantor rehearsalsj 'lGypsy Moon", the operetta, found lrma Padilla, Ann G. Stone, Mary Ellen Dowling and Ruth Coughlan doing their bit. Ruth made a transition from the beautiful heroine of the Passion Play to the villain of the "Gypsy Moon." lrma was the gay gypsy girl. lf you know lrma you will guess that it was not a difficult part for her to play. She is gay-and as far as the gypsy characteristic, look to the earrings. But we were not finished with the footlights yet, for, we had another opportunity later to play actresses in the annual Competitive Plays. The lunior Year gradually came to its close, bringing us the Mother-Daughter Tea, an affair which is so close to our hearts, and final exams, an affair which is-must we go on? lt is sufficient to say that they reared their ugly heads once more. Then, Commence- ment Week with all its mad excitement. The days were sun-kissed and invited indolence. We reviewed the happy year, that lay behind us and anticipated the summer months that beckoned with such a note of expectation. The hours went by quickly and the various exercises which included May Prom, and Baccalaureate Sunday left us spinning in their wake. Then came Graduation Day. We were not eager to say good-bye to the Seniors, but bidding adieu to friends is an essential part of this day, and although the task is not a pleasant one, it has to be done. This year Commencement Week meant more to us because we became acutely aware that next year we would claim as our own these days which carry with them so much significance. So closed 1940-1941. We had put our best efforts into this year. We hope that we have reaped a worthy harvest. The very thought of the approaching September thrills us. There remains one guestion in our minds now. What has the new year in store for the Class of '42? Day, Class Day, Senior V Mary Ellen Dowling Page 79 Page 80 Sophomores at college-those tor- tunate possessors ot both a past and a future of collegiate lite. They have ex- perienced in this, their Sophomore Year, a security from the hazards ot Freshmen, and the responsibilities which Weigh upon luniors and Seniors. Next year, our Sophomore sisters will be luniors gravely carrying on the traditions and ideals given to them by us, their Sister Class. gqzfm my SSS NG ev Omyx 5 ,f'77'x- C' ir 'TEA 'iff ' , - .Sl QE ,'4' III ii ii in 3 .... 1 222' W Y 'xt 5,145 xxx 701' v 4 .

Registration Day saw members of the new Sophomore Class joyfully greeting school and classmates .... "We have new lights in the dorm!" "Yes, but guess where we are-ein the third floor dorm! Don't you think the Freshmen should have that floor? After all they're younger than we are and wouldn't mind those three flights of stairs as much as we." "Have you seen the Day Students' Rec Room? . . All fixed over, new curtains and all." "I smell paint-must have done the whole building over!" The interest of the Sophomore Class in the field of science was increased lOOQQ by the addition of two new members to the faculty -Dr. Walter Carmody, professor of Chemistry, and Dr. R. Dale Smith, professor of Biology. Every "gay young Sophomore" was convinced that her calling most certainly lay along scientific lines. Great interest was also evinced in the announcement that three other members were to be numbered among the faculty of our college. The artistically inclined rejoiced to hear of the opening of the new Art Course. Fully realizing that every organization needs a head to give it unity and cooperation, we held class elections as soon as class schedules were straightened out. Anne O'Connell was elected President, Elinor White, Vice-Presidentg Rosemary Glavin, Secre- tary, and Mildred l-lourihan, Treasurer. Sylvia Torres and Emilia Valdivieso, our Puerto Rican repre- sentatives, arrived finally, a few days late, and so a complete and united Sophomore Class attended the party given annually on Elms Night by the Seniors in honor of the new Freshman Class. Page 82 Columbus Day dawned bright and sunshiny, conveniently falling on a Saturday, allowing us a full week-end of football games, et cetera. We returned from our brief holiday in time to prepare ourselves for the annual Spiritual Retreat from Cctober sixteenth to the nineteenth. Fr. Rooney, S. l. conducted the retreat. This year the mantle of responsibility lay heavily upon our shoulders, and we plunged energetically into plans for the Hal- loWe'en party which tradition decrees every Sophomore Class have for its sister Senior Class. We really gave our Nall" for the success of that party. We wanted it to be a success not only for our "big sisters" of the Senior Class, but also because we were anxious to prove our worth to our school and fellow classes. 'lhe setting was a barn dance with a wishing-well, Hkadoodlers orchestry", corn- stalks, pumpkins, and yes, even a "torture chamber" for our poor Senior Sisters. Many a shriek and a giggle reechoed through the gym that night! SENIOR-SOPHOMORE TEAM Page 83 L. Page We have always shown a very keen interest in sports and athletics and this year was to be no exception. Marion Primeau, Rosemary Glavin and Ann Boyd displayed remarkable skill in Ping-Pongg a large percentage of the class joined either the swim- ming or bowling teamsg and a snappy-basketball team under the capable guidance of Rita Noonan triumphantly bore our class colors of blue and white through to many a well-deserved victory. Good things come in small packagessand large numbers!! We returned from our Armistice week-end just in time to put in an appearance at the annual Elmata Dance sponsored by the Senior class to help defray the expenses of the l'Elmata", our yearbook. Wendell Bradley and orchestra helped make the dance the grand success that it-was. And then suddenly it was Christmas. Not a single airy snow- flake swirled through the wintry atmosphere to be a harbinger of its coming, but on that night of December l9, not a person within the marble halls of Our Lady of the Elms College could escape the hushed, magnetic, strangely joyous feeling that permeated the entire building-the spirit of Christmas, given full voice in the joint entertainment sponsored by the Dramatic and Glee Clubs. The Sophomore Class was well represented in the entertainment, for Eileen Trant as Santa Claus was the center of much merriment, while Alice Kane, Betty l-layes, Peg Tierney, Rosemary Glavin, and lda Belanger had prominent parts in the and Alice Carroll, Rita Grover and Kay Shea Barbara l-loulihan Christmas tableau, were soloists for the Glee Club. The Sophomores believe that "advertising is the soul of prog- ress"g and so it was with pride and joy that we learned that one of our members, Mildred l-lourihan, who has had first-hand experience along journalistic lines, was appointed as head of the Student Publicity Department. The annual Senior-Alumnae Basket- ball game in lanuary had an added attraction for the vivacious members of the class of '43- the sport dance which followed the game. The huge Wurlitzer machine played recording after record- ing while Elmites and their escorts danced happily in the gym. February third heralded the end of the mid-year exams and the beginning ,N of the second semester which in turn heralded the lunior Prom, a most im- portant affair which the socially-minded Sophomores attended en masse. The Spanish theme of the Prom decorations was carried out by Gene Sanders and the members of his orchestra who wore colorful sombreros. T- rx. .N . Xiu? KATHERINE SHEA AND SYLVIA 84 February witnessed a series of lectures delivered by Rev. Ignatius Smith of Catholic University, and the Sophomores demon- strated their ability to "go intellectual" much to the satisfaction of their professors. Long, wearisome rehearsals reaped very satisfying results, for this year's presentation of "Pilate's Daughter" proved to be one of the finest that Alma Mater has witnessed. Ann O'Connel1, Barbara Houlihan, Ida Belanger, Maria McCallin and Betty Hayes upheld class tradition and expertly handled the roles assigned to them. Easter Vacation afforded a Welcome respite for the active Sophs and plans Were made to attend the various Easter formals sponsored by the different Alumnae chapters in their respective cities. May ushered in High-School Day giving the Sophomores an opportunity to direct the Freshmen how to direct the high school pupils around the buildings and campus. "l'he Gypsy Troubadourn, an operetta, was presented for the entertainment of our guestsp Several Sophomores, Rita Grover, Alice Carroll, Eileen Trant, and Kay Shea managed to annex some of the leading roles. And then what a heavy schedule of events loomed up to dazzle the busy little Sophs-the Annual Debate, the Public Assembly in Oral Expression, Final Exams, the Senior Prom and, finally, Com- mencement which is both the beginning and the end for our sister Senior class. The class of '43 looks back on a very busy, very happy, and thoroughly satisfactory Sophomore year, with a fervent hope that each succeeding year may be its exciting counterpart.

Activities provide for re- laxation, so that after play, studies may be resumed with renewed zeal and in- terest.

This one thought dominated our activities, and to direct us more surely to its attainment, we chose as our Prefect Mary de Paul Power. Honoring Our Lady means first of all serving Her Son. Each First Friday found us united in devout adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Our Mod- erator, Doctor leremiah P. Sheehan, conducted the Holy Hour, and we prayed with him and sang our Hymns to Christ, Our King, and IVIary's Son. The Feast of the lmmaculate Conception, so dear to every Catholic heart, witnessed the annual reception into the Sodality of Our Lady. Beautiful, indeed, was the shrine before Our Lady's altar, and beautiful, too, was the chapel, as fifty-two new members, chiefly Freshmen, received the badge of Mary's Sodalists. In a sermon so inspiring that we regretted its close, Father Lawrence Foran, S. l. showed us our work as militant Catholic women in the world I-ler Son had died to save. Our Lord's own blessing brought to a close the ceremony. .xdcfiuifieri 0 guckaridfic Gommiffee Anxious to do its part to bring God's blessing on this world, the Sodality inaugurated an intensive program of prayer. Zealous and untiring in her efforts to arouse devotion, Helen Pratt arranged every detail. During February bands were formed, and the members voluntarily offered to succeed one another in prayer, so that from our chapel a continuous Rosary might ascend before the throne of God. It was an inspiring devotion, and new intentions were constantly recommended to us. A perpetual vigil was kept before the Blessed Sacrament by the Sodalists during the I-loly Season of Lent. We hoped thus to arouse an increasing devotion to lesus in the Blessed Sacrament. The fidelity of our members to their visits was indeed inspiring, for one could always find some fervent TY BULLETIN BOARD worshiper before the altar. .gjoclafify Clzrififmad parfy gggiw, , - ,WL K .

But our Christmas spirit went beyond the walls and campus of Our Lady of the Elms. Charity, if it dominates at any time, does so at Christ- mas. Filled with the fervor of giving and making happy, each Sodalist brought a doll to the two bi- monthly meetings preceding the holiday season. The collection was a sight one could never forget. A whole room, literally filled with dolls of every de- scription, would have delighted any childish heart. And that was our purpose in collecting them. After having admired them sufficiently, we sent them to little girls in Holyoke and Chicopee, that they might find happiness in them. Some, too, travelled away out to the West, and brought Christmas cheer to little children of the missions. The practical side of Christmas-giving we took care of by distributing clothes. With them, to various families of Chicopee, went twelve attractive baskets, well filled with everything that means a Christmas dinner. We hope that those who received our gifts were as happy as we who gave. MUSICAL PROGRAMME Familiar Carols . . arranged by Fyffe String Ensemble Silent Night .....

The chaos and turmoil of the world awakened our solicitude and sympathy, and we were anxious to do our part to help both at home and abroad. Shirley Sheridan was in charge of this particular activity, and she brought to it her characteristic zeal. Religious articles of every kind and description were collected from the Sodalists. lnto boxes they were packed and despatched to the foreign missions. That Catholic literature might find its way among those thirsting for knowledge, we decided to bring religious pamphlets to the meetings. The ultimate destina- tion of these, too, was the missions abroad. Mission activity was thus character- ized by a new zeal, and reached a new level of achievement. It was a great com- fort for us, too, to know that we were doing something to encourage and assist those who were giving their all in the mission fields. 1 'bi -6 Jr 3.1 wg Vw ...Aa JN- Page 98 .sjoclahfy Jiferary Spiritual and charitable though our activities are, there is also time for the intellectual. At the outset of the year, Rita Mulcahy organized the Literary Club. At the different meetings reports were made on current books, and there was open discussion, both on the merits of each book and on the life of the author. Many Women of literary repute were speakers at the meetings. Miss Mary Cvarst, our librarian, gave some very interesting talks. The Literary Club truly accomplished its purpose, for it succeeded in instilling into us a deep and abiding knowledge of contemporary literature, which We so eagerly desired. egiona Weefingd The Summer School of Fordham University definitely proves that, unlike poets, leaders are both born and made. To give to the World just the type of leadership, whether secular or religious, which will enable it to get a fresh, practical comprehension of Catholic ideals is its ultimate goal. Five "Elmites" were favored with the opportunity and pleasure of attending the summer session during the 1940 season. None other than Father Lord was their host. Seminars, Round Table Dis- cussions, and Demonstration were helpful and inspiring, while the Recreational Program, social events, and sight-seeing completed a most delightful and profitable trip. To the capital of our own State Went another group in March 1941. At Boston College Was held a Re- gional Meeting of the Sodality. Again, the Reverend Daniel Lord, S. 1., National Moderator, was in charge. Everything that Father Lord at- tempts is supremely interesting and he at once arouses one to a sense of duty and to a desire of accomplish- ing much for God. The delegation returned full of enthusiasm and tried to impart to the other Sodalists an even added zeal for the Sodality Movement, which is indeed a splendid demonstration of Catholic Action. CATHOLIC SUMMER SCHOOL--FORDHAM Page 100 ,wwflQefNaf REV. RICHARD L. ROONEY. S. J. Catholic education does not content itself with mere preparation for success in this world. It looks beyond present horizons to those where a failure assumes an eternal value. To develop, therefore, a spiritual energy which will constantly exert its motivating influence in our lives, it is necessary from time to time, through intensive effort expended in prayer and meditation, to build up a spiritual reserve power. Assisting us in this greatest of achievements, our Alma Mater wisely asks us each year to set aside for three days all our temporal con- cerns and delve into those more vital ones of the life to come. ln other words, we focus our attention once again on an ultimate goal, and readjust our positions so that all our activities converge ultimately to it. We considered the Retreat of this year especially effective, and we are sure that its lessons will carry over always in the lives of those who made it. With the following opening thought, Reverend Richard L. Rooney, S. I. of Boston directed us through these three days, altogether too short, in the middle of last October. If our faith is keen, the world and all things in it become a vast rosary. Each created object, from star shine to shoe polish, is a bead which has the power to turn our minds to our Maker, if we finger it with care. "We are called to be saints," he said, Hand to be a saint means embarking on the exciting adventure of being Christlikef' This we tried to do by starting each day with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, supplemented later with four conferences in our chapel at the appointed hours. An edifying silence prevailed for these three days, except during our one hour of recreation after dinner and a half hour following supper. Rita Mulcahy, President of the Literary Club, was in charge of the five-minute spiritual reading before each meal. Each day was brought to a happy close with the bestowing of Our Lord's blessing at Benediction. "To the real Catholic, life is not a problem to be solved, but a challenge to be met," said Father Rooney. 'tLet us be less self-centered, let us open our hearts entirely to God, for He is a jealous God. He would have all or nothing." During the Retreat Our Lord was pictured as Christ the King, knocking gently at the door of our hearts, pleading, but never forcing His way into the souls from whom He desires some return of love. It is up to us to heed His knocking and respond at once to His call. Father insisted that we should be Christlike in every actfour minds should be His mind, we should think His thoughts. Our hands should be like His, help- ful, strong, tender, our feet like His, tireless for others, swift, and ever ready in the pursuit of good. Our eyes, His eyes, tender, compassionate, understanding, and loving. Our ears, ready like His, sympathetic, attentive to the wants of those about us. A test for the goodness and worth of any action was suggested in this way: "Can I honestly and truthfully say that I can put it on the paten at tomorrow's Mass and know that it will be acceptable to God? Am I willing to say at least one daily 'Yes' to my 'No', and 'No' to my 'Yes'?" Thus do we develop a spiritual strength which enables us to give to a sin-sick world the beauty of women clothed in shining garments of virtue. All of these things were of deep significance to the Seniors, who were soon to go forth from the shelter of Our Lady into the wide, wide world where there is only one real madness, one real insanity, and we call it sin. Through this Re- treat we were brought to a more vivid realization of our obligations as Catholics to God, to our parents, to our school, and to ourselves. On the last day of our never-to-be-forgotten Retreat, Father offered Mass for our intentions, and held a special conference that night for the Seniors that we might be better prepared to leave these holy realms and as Catholic women of Christ become strong, moulding influences in a war-beaten world. Let us pray that each member of the Class of l94l may consider it a sacred obligation to be true always to the standards which we accepted in our Retreat of l94O. Page 101 Page 102 eniom Zgnifiafion puffy fo fke jred men The Senior Court was in session. The case of the Seniors againt the Freshmen was opened by the forbidding judge, losie Murray, with Mary Desmarais, District Attorney, and Kathryn Gibbons, foreman of the jury, ably assisting the remaining Seniors. Motion to adjourn was made after two hours of severe accusation and gues- tioning, during which the forty-four pleaded almost unanimously "Not guilty." The crimes of which the Freshmen were accused were amusing and in many instances showed keen observation on the part of the Seniors. The victims accepted all in a spirit of sportsmanship and afforded a pleasant evening to their audience. This was really an initiation, and it was feared by the majority, we know. But it was a fitting introduction to college life. That life, as the Freshmen will see, is one of great joy. But we did not wish to give them any false impressions. lt, too, has its difficulties and its compensations, as reflected in the program of their initiation. With the verdict of "lnnocent" legally passed, the Freshmen became eligible to active participation in all the functions of the College of Our Lady of the Elms. To enable them better to appre- ciate the honor of this privilege was the Senior purpose on the occasion of their initiation. We now feel that the Freshmen have not only proved themselves worthy of it, but have enhanced the glory of the Elms and in return have made us realize that it is a distinct asset to have them among us. May success and happiness attend them throughout their four years of college life. ociafudcfion ,-.- 'Uwe r-gf-n Dx Prex ident Secretaq Vice- Prer id ent Margaret P. Riley Flora V. Mille-tie Mary M.

This Club invites to its meetings speakers who are experts in the various fields into which the Seniors may enter. During the course of the year the Club has been successful in securing interesting and enthusiastic speakers expert in a wide range of fields, including teaching, library science and the many phases of social work. Page 103 tAel"- Clllfgktel' jeu ln the beautiful month of May, the students at the College of Our Lady of the Elms honored their Blessed Mother and their own mothers at a charming afternoon social. Under the auspices of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin this is an annual affair. The gymnasium was cleverly disguised as a spring garden scene. The committee on decorations was well rewarded for its efforts. The Maypole proved especially effective and served as the color scheme of the affair. We were indeed honored to have so many mothers with us on that day. We know they enjoyed the program presented for their entertainment by the A Cappella Choir. A friendly round of bridge served to render the afternoon a complete success. Favors were presented to the guests and mothers by gaily costumed daughters. The favors were religious articles and rose corsages. At the end of this perfect day, the girls accompanied their mothers to their respective homes for a pleasant week end. Nga 01112811 Darkness-a loud clammering of chains-dry bones and ghostly figures and then a plunge through a rubber tire. The shrieks and shouts of those passing through this torture-chamber came from the Seniors. This was their admission to the Barn Dance on the eve of October thirty-first. We never imagined that our Sister Class would ever treat us so cruelly, but they made up for it all by pre- senting a grand and glorious evening of fun and laughter. We were entertained to the nth degree with husband-calling contests. The victor was Eileen Trant. Their tin pan orchestra came next on the program and then "Giddee-up Napoleon" featuring Rita Grover and her make-believe donkey. Kay Shea gave us the l'Swinging Song" and then our applause was hushed. Miss Anne O'Connell, President of our Sister Class, stepped forward and to each and every Senior presented a dainty little sterling silver pencil, bearing our initials. This unique gift will always recall to us the thoughtful- ness and true friendship of the Sophomore Class. The lights were dimmedg the silver curtains parted, and there before us were set tables fit for a king. And so, by candle light, we all feasted, bringing to a close a never-to-be-forgotten evening of ioy and happiness, given to us by our dear Sister Class, none other than the gay young Sophomores of Our Lady of the Elms.

Bardsley Anne O'Connell If, in any college of our day, we ought to find a love of the Classics and an insistence upon the study of Latin, should it not be in a Catholic College? Most affectionately does Our Lady of the Elms treasure her heritage and try to pro- mote interest in it. Was it not the Catholic lnstitutions of other centuries that realized the Worth of this language and used it as a medium of thought? Latin has indeed a value, and in a world too prone to reject it as hard and unnecessary, We cling to it and strive to restore it to its rightful place. Supplementing the work done in class, the Classical Club aims more and more to develop an appreciation of Latin and its rich literature. That Livy's speeches still have a power to impress. and hold the attention of an audience is true, for we have listened to one of them with keen interest. The beautiful gospels of Christmas seem so much sweeter when read in the language of the Church, and the Latin students remembered this. We were privileged to have them given to us with great expression and devotion in the dignified Latin tongue. Page 105 l Page 106 INITIATION The Sophomores faithfully studied the "Captivi" of Plautus, and when they felt that they themselves had completely mastered it, that they had appreciated its every line and enjoyed it fully, they attempted to arrange it for a Club meeting. The' parts which gave the cross section of the story were well organized and reproduced. The actresses certainly interpreted well their respective roles. They put into them an enthusiasm and a spirit which the audience felt. And, so that no portion of the plot might be omitted, the President of the Club gave brief resumes of those sections not dramatized. Thus it was that the Classical Club strove to develop a better appreciation of Latin, a more sympathetic attitude toward it, and an admiration for the wealth of its literature. After two years of its intensive study, every graduate of Our Lady of the Elms ought to be in a position to evaluate correctly the place of Latin in the curriculum in our modern schools.

Many an interesting monthly meeting is spent viewing moving pictures dealing with the ever- changing scientific World about us. Under the capable direction ot the Presi- dent, Marie Callahan, the Club has enjoyed an active calendar. Page 109 Page 110 APRIL MEETING The advent of two new professors to the Science Department gave a new impetus to scientific pursuits at the college. This was particularly evident by the organization of a Science Weekly Newspaper. Dr. Carmody and Dr. Smith are the advisors. Anne Rowley, Flora Millette, and Marie Callahan make up the staff, The aim of the newspaper is to allow the science students to publish their papers and express their views on controversial scientific subjects. This paper shows great promise. The aims and ideals of the instigators are so enthusiastic that their favorite project cannot help but be successful. Time will confirm our conviction, we hope. Another important phase of the Club's activities is the interesting and informative discussion of modern scientific books that are constantly being published. The Club aims at giving the correct, Catholic viewpoint on these controversial books. Perhaps in no other field is there such a widespread dis- regard of Catholic principles as in the soscalled semi-professional best sellers dealing with phases of biology and chemistry. New theories are discussed at the monthly meetings. With a solid background of Catholic training, a clear, broad view is cultivated. The motion picture plays a particularly informational part at every Club meeting. New fields of thought are realistically depicted on the screen. Some of the most appreciated films dealt with the marvels of polarized light, the architecture of plants, and the valuable medical applications of the X-Ray ano ultra-violet ray. The girls themselves enjoy operating their films, a fact which carries over the idea of experiment into their social meetings, and thus they are active members in the real sense of the word.

Voice culture is given ample attention. It is not the desire ot the Club to present stiff, meaning- less debates, but rather to give its members a knowledge of the essential prin- ciples of Speech and Expression with a view to their use in graduate lite. The Club aims above all to present self-confident, poised women in after-school lite. The meetings are in the form of seminars, open forums, round-table dis- cussions, and practice debates. All the meetings serve as a preparation for the annual public debate in the Veritas Auditorium on the twelfth ot May. The Debating Club inaugurated a new activity this year in the form of a Question Box. This met with great favor. The members were invited to put into the Box questions to be treated at the next meeting. These questions were oi a Page 111 Page 112 COLLECTING DATA controversial and instructive nature. The heavy forensic method of procedure was avoided, and all the subjects were argued with calmness and deliberation. It was agreed that neither volume nor gesticulation makes a debater, but rather an interpretation of the debate-matter that is at once natural and effective. By discrimination, therefore, in the selections, the Club secured quality and quantity for its speakers. In all of its activities, the Club aimed at impressing upon its members the fact that they must remember that the modern mode of speaking is not affected. Much that would have been dramatic yesterday would be melodramatic today. A loyal member of the M. l. B. Debating Club knows that to give the impression of "reserve power" is always more effective for the cultured modern girl, than to make others feel she is giving all she has at once. A thorough knowledge of parliamentary law was made available to the members. lt is fondly hoped that when the Elms girls conduct neighborhood clubs in their respective cities they will be confident, well-poised, cultured women. The activities of the M. l. B. Debating Society are directed toward that ultimate end. O 2 EPC 8 Jrancacd :Q 'C' 741 fo ,x' Prefidmt Sfffffciffl' Mary H. O'Connell Kathryn E.

Qpening the season with a business meeting, detinite programs soon were arranged. Many new members were inducted and in the tollowing monthly meetings debates, dramatic productions, and socials were held. An outstanding teature ot the Club was the annual French debate held in February. A capable team composed ot Catherine Kelly, Alice Van Keuren and Mary Shaughnessey, who upheld the attirmativet and ct Helena Butler, Helen Meagher and Elizabeth Hayes who argued tor the negative ably discussed tor almost one hour a guestion ol much import, namely: "lQesolu: gue le college P sig? .1 . Q, 4..- ' nan Hr g N I Page 114 SENIOR-SOPHOMORE VS. JUNIOR-FRESHMAN DEBATE electoral devrait etre aboli." Although the affirmative received the reward of the judges, the negative is open to congratulation. lt was indeed a spirited and creditable debate. The chief purpose of the Cercle Francais is to enable its members to appre- ciate the language and encourage its use in conversation. As a stimulus to this, two gold fleur-de-lis medals are awarded at the close of the year to the students having spoken the greatest number of hours of French. An extension of the activities of the Cercle Francais is the French Table maintained in the dining-room of O'Leary Hall. lt is a pleasure to hear the "belle langue francaise" the sole medium of expression. The hostess of each week assumes the responsibility of seeing that an interesting conversation is maintained. Another feature of the Club's extra-curricular activities is the publication of a newspaper 'Chuchotements des Ormesf' This furnished an added oppor- tunity to all members of the French classes for acquiring skill in writing. The students cooperate, too, in subscribing to the journal. At the various meetings of the Cercle Francais songs and games of old France were played and sung, with all members actively participating. A busy and profitable year brought to completion its program with a bridge social at which "la langue francaise" was of prime importance. Le Cercle Francais feels that it has used every means at its disposal to create opportunities for the easy and natural development of a conversational ability.

Prex ident Secretary Mary L. Desmarais Mary M. Callahan Vice-Prefidefzt Treasurer Mary Ellen Dowling Katherine A. Walsh The Dramatic Club was skillfully guided through a most successful year by its talented president, Mary Desmarais. The Little Theater, scene ot the theat- rical productions, was further adorned this season. "The Marquee" as it is called, was established a year ago and has rapidly become part ot the Elms tradition. lt provides a professional setting tor our amateur presentations. These pres- entations are varied enough to develop every latent ability. So realistically do the actresses perform that the audience is frequently moved to laughter or tears, a compliment to any production. Page 117 Club members are asked to indicate at the beginning of the year the branch of the theater in which they are particularly interested. These branches include stagecraft, costuming, designing, producing and acting. In this manner, every member is an indispensable unit in the organization. Many hidden talents were brought to light during the year. Mary de Paul Power, so dainty and feminine in real life, played the part of a boy so convinc- ingly that we are positive we have in her an embryo character-actress. Of course, no one can surpass Rita Mulcahy in sympathetic mother parts. Rita plays these so well, that we fear she has become "typed" as far as our Little Theater world is concerned. Among the more successful productions were those supervised by Marie Callahan. Marie has a talent for choosing prize-winning plays, a fact which encourages the Seniors during the Inter-Class Play Tournament. The Class of '41 has been a prize winner in this contest since its Freshman Year. The Dramatic Club, too, combines business with pleasure in all its activities. An observer watching a group of girls at work getting a play into shape cannot but notice their efficiency and interest in their work. There is a spirit of co- operation and good will evident in all its projects. The standard that the Club sets for itself is admittedly high and a challenge-a challenge courageously met. The members are really active and devote precious time to the Club. They feel amply rewarded because of the genuine entertainment they provide. i afeii augAfer Each recurring Palm Sunday brings with it the presentation of Pilate's Daughter, without which Lent would not be Lent at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. Yet, in spite of its annual production, the religious drama never loses its appeal for the student body, who give to it a devotion and an enthusiasm which are certainly edifying. The vacancies occasioned by the graduation of some of our actresses always create opportunities for the display of new talent and ability. There is laudable ambition among the new members of the cast to attain at least the success of their predecessors. This year members of the Class of 1941 appeared in their respective roles for the last time. Mary Desmarais as Leah was indeed superb, and all were unani- mous in her praise. The stately Empress Agrippina will no longer be Constance Stiles, so naturally adapted for that particular part. And a successor must be found for the gentle Mary Smyth, the happy mother of her child restored to life. It will be difficult, we think, for the successors of Rita Mulcahy, Mary Callahan, and Flora Millette to improve upon their acting. They were certainly superb. The whole interest of the college went into the production of "Pilate's Daughter." lt was as if each girl wanted to do her part to arouse the hearts of her audience to a deep sympathy and love for Our Suffering Lord. We hope that I-le was pleased with our efforts and that in the years to come the memory of the moments spent in rehearsing for "Pilates Daughter" may reawaken in us the true spirit of Lent.

The sacred atmosphere ot the Christmas Play was greatly enriched by the musical interlude provided once more by the perfectly blended voices ot the Glee Club, always responding to the baton ot our most talented director, Mary de Paul Power. Page 121 Page 122 Music, when soft voices die, vibrates in the memory. And so we remember our operetta l'The Gypsy Troubadourf' presented at the Mother'Daughter Tea in May, a sure test of the Glee Club's ability anda proof of its worth. But the grand finale of the season's activities was the presentation of the dignified and charming selections of Commencement: Cn Music's Wing . . . Mendelssohn Flowers and Fancies . Mozart Omnipotence . . Shubert Alma Mater Song Gloria Patri . Palestrina All these and many more programs, the result of tireless and generous instruction, have enraptured these four formative stanzas of our life, and have helped us to realize that music is and always will be a necessary and a most beautiful companion in life. W o ,4 QW fa cf,.,,,. l-ligh Masses and Benedictions form an essential part of the choir's duty, and its members, trained according to the method of Pius X School of Liturgical Music, join whole-heartedly in giving to Cur Lady of the Elms sacred music most worthy of our devotional little chapel. lt is not unusual for them to render in a masterly and finished manner the most difficult and intricate selections. On Cap and Gown Sunday there was opportunity to display ability and the choir proved itself equal to the occasion. The chapel ceremony was indeed impressive and the singing helped to make it so. ln the social hour later in the afternoon, the selections, so well rendered, demonstrated much versatility. A Cappella outdid itself at the Mass of the Feast of St. loseph. lt gave glory to our dear Saint and stimulated the devotion of all. The choir was at its best in this program: Kyrie from Missa Brevis . Montani Te loseph Celebrent . . Ravanello O Sacrum Convivium ..... Remondi The singing of A Cappella gave an added note of solemnity and dignity to "Pilate's Daughter." One will not soon forget its excellent rendition of: Adoramus Te Domine ..... Remondi Christus Factus Est ....... Yon In Paradisum ....... Gregorian The presentations of the A Cappella Choir are always awaited with anticipa- tion and received with great acclaim. Whoever admires perfect shading and exquisite harmony has all she can desire in this choir. lts members are indeed gifted and well-trained.

Its members are ardent sportswomen who enjoy a Canter through the woods at least once a week, weather permitting. lt was the zeal and enthusiasm of a relatively small group of girls who organized this new Club. The present members are practically all charter members because the Club is only one year old. So active is the schedule at the Elms that few ventured to join this new Club at first, but once they tried the paths in the hills, they fell victims to the call of the sport. What the Club lacks in numbers, is offset by a true spirit of pleasure. These girls certainly enjoy their hobby. The clear crisp fall days furnish a colorful background for the weekly jaunts. Winter was too hazardous and risky for even the most zealous to brave the frozen, ice-packed trails. Spring indeed was welcome. The bright blue sky, the invigorating odor of new life budding forth, the lengthening days, were all an added charm for the rider. wg- EXAMINING "OFFSET" YEARBOOK STAFF: Eileen L. Shea, Kathryn E. Gibbons, Helena M. Butler, Mary M. Callahan, Mary L. Desmarais, Margaret P. Riley, Mary M. Smyth. jim Efmafa The Elmata, dear Readers, is the annual of Qur Lady of the Elms. lt is the enduring monument of each succeeding Senior Class. ln it is embodied the literary genius, the artistic talent, the business ability of the definite group which is responsible for its production. To them, therefore, the Class most appropriately speaks a word of tribute. Interested, energetic, capable, our Editor-in-chief, Eileen Shea, worked untiringly in the organization of Elmata, supervised its every detail, contributed of her very best to make it absolutely representative of our Class and of our College. We recognize her unselfish use of time and ability and we ask her to accept our Word of appreciation. Every year the same problem confronts the Business Manager and the Elrnata Staff. The problem? That of financing it. To Kathryn Gibbons the Class of '41 turned hopefully. lf anyone could meet the situation, it was she. Our confidence was not misplaced. The estimates which we had formed of her ability were correct, and the Elmata of l94l is a testimony to her able manage- ment. Page 125 l SELECTING OUR PICTORIAL PAGES To launch Elmata on its annual journey, an hlmata Dance is held. Armistice Day was chosen for the occasion. Truly patriotic in its scheme of decorations was the committee. Red bunting, blue baloons, long white streamers made a pretty background for the dancers. The general chairman of the affair was Mary O'Donnell, and with her at the head any worry as to the outcome was banished. Helena Butler distributed tickets and was most successful in obtaining satisfactory returns. Rita Mulcahy's method of serving refreshments was novel indeed, and losie Murray, with her attractive posters, gave the dance much publicity. Cn the evening of Armistice Day the campus was astir. Everyone seemed to be hurrying toward the Administration Building. There the gym, so effectively decorated, became the scene of a night of pleasure and delight. Friendliness, the spirit of joy, inviting music made the time just fly. After intermission and refreshments we all made the most of the remaining hours, and with the last note of the music, dancing ceased. What a happy occasion it had been and what an auspicious beginning for Elmata! Following the Elmata Dance was another egually outstanding affair on our social calendar. This was the annual Senior-Alumnae Game, enhanced by the addition of a sport dance. The earlier part of the evening was spent in watching the Alumnae team, gallantly captained by Eleanor Q'l'lerron, give the Seniors much skillful competition. We had expected them to be less practiced, and the Senior victory was by no means easy. After watching this game, which was filled with tense moments, everybody- cheering sections and players all forgot the excitement of contest in the thrill of dancing. This affair was an outstanding success from a social and financial point of view. Though finances enabled the publication of Elmata, ultimately the contribu- tors to its pages were its real makers. While the Business Manager schemed and planned to give support to the Literary Staff, guietly, persistently, faithfully they worked daily to produce a book which would reflect credit upon them, enhance the glory of their College, and help, by word and picture, to preserve forever for the Senior Class the golden hours they had passed under the maternal protection of Qur Lady of the Elms. If Elmata does this for the Class of '41, its purpose is accomplished. Page 126 .fdfkfefic Adociafion 4' 'X x.,'X Prerident Secrefag' Mary I. Noonan Vice-Preyident Trmffzrer Ann G. Stone Mary H. Clic-nnell Beginning another of its successful seasons in September, members of the Athletic Association enjoyed the usual fall activities: horseback riding, swimming, and tennis, but our tennis tourna- ment having been rained out, we turned with zest and enthusiasm to basketball. The season was formally opened with an event not entirely new, except in one added attraction, that of the Alumnae- Senior Game and Dance. The gym resounded with joyous shout- ing, and voices, both male and female, blended to cheer on the victory-anxious players. A victory dance for the Senior Class followed the game, and a grand and glorious time was had by all. lnterclass games now took the lead and the alert Freshmen held their own with each team. These "double-headers" drew a full house every Saturday night and the last game of the season bestowed the title of 'School Champions" on the Senior Class. Page 127 , - 5 -.-'p ' . Under the direction of Miss Long, athletic instructor, our interests were now diverted to various other sports. The Ping Pong tournament was im- mediately begun, and, too, a most successful bowling tournament ar- ranged by a most capable president of the A. A., Mary Noonan. Various teams composed of five girls set out .. each Wednesday to play off their match, and we were even granted --ff a space in the rotogravure section A., .y of the Springfield Sunday Paper, - s ,, where we portrayed our skillful ' 1 bowlers. Paddle tennis .retained its popularity and we also indulged in a few games of badminton. But as the buds of spring began to appear, so we devoted our interest to volley ball and soft ball. Tournaments once more were planned and each evening following supper, everyone turned out for those exciting moments on the spacious campus to the right of the Administration Building. Not a person was left idle-if it was not volley ball, it was soft ball and thus we were insured our in- vigorating exercise. 'W ith the coming of summer, the tennis court became the mag- net, both for players and loolcers-on and this enthusiastic sport was once more the pride and joy of all concerned. Carefully tucking away TENNIS TOURAMENT "x 1l.. '-" ' ' 1-1 ' 1. gym uniforms for another season, the athletic- minded Elms girls turned their attention toward the ever popular summer vacation. But before their departure, the culmina- tion of events, the soiree of our A. A., took place in the Browsing Room. 'Twas on this memorable evening that a program, consisting of baseball news, tennis tips, a sports skit by the Freshmen, and a Dr. I. Q. Quiz Contest was presented by members of the Club. This was all great fun, but next on the program and most important of all, the dignified Seniors were awarded their Athletic letters, beautiful "E" 's of green and gold terry cloth. Those receiving them were: Helena Butler, lrene Cavanaugh, Catherine loseph, Flora Millette, Rita Mulcahy, Mary Noonan, Mary O'Connor, Mary O'Donnell, Helen Pratt, and also two underclassmen, Rita Noonan and Anne Stone, all of whom possessed outstanding athletic abilities during their stay at the Elms. Refresh- ments were served, and our soiree was then brought to a close by our most capable President, Mary Noonan.

O'Lenry, D. DQ My dear Graduates: These are the last words of , your Alma Mater as she bids you Godspeed, and they must remind you that your privileges have made you debtors to this college and to yourself and to society. As you leave these college halls Alma Mater says of you to the world: HI-Iere are those whom I have truly educated, to whom I have given the highest ideals of conduct and character, by whose lives I may be judged. Here are women with noble womanly hearts and high noble souls. But they are more than my students, my scholars, they are my children, and I have expended on them all a mother's care and all a mother's love. It has been my purpose to make them worthy inheritors of the exalted traditions of Catholic womanhood, prompt in faith, prompt in love, prompt in sacrifice and devotion, ready and able to see the meaning and the virtue of the lowest and the highest service of God. In their ranks will be found no one who would defame the sanctity of marriage. From their lips will come no insult to things sacred. They will always cherish what is spiritual and religious. True to their ideals, they will scatter around about them the sweet- ness and the light of their souls' virtues. The freshness and beauty of their own lives will keep alive the sacred flame of womanly honor, the hope and sustenance of the world. And wherever they go they will recall to their sisters the first type of womanhood, and inspire all hearts with renewed yearning for those more gracious things in the world, which alone give to womanly life its breadth, its dignity and its glory. My dear Graduates, go forth with this message written not on parchment but on the tender fibres of your own hearts. Interpret it with all its meaning to the world, and in doing so you will win the admiration of man. God will love you, God will bless you, and with His blessing success in life will be yours. Page 135 enior aga lt is with a feeling of mingled joy and sadness that we see approaching the hour when we must bid farewell to our cherished Alma Mater. Wistfully do we recall the four years so swiftly brought to a close. Was it not but yesterday, as unsophisticated Freshmen, we dreamed our dreams and began to weave our hopes? Where are the Sophomore days, gay, happy, carefree? Can it be that the lunior year, that prelude to great responsibilities, is now merely a memory? Yes, truly, as Seniors we stand and review the accomplishments of this, our last year. Qur first official act in Senior capacity was the formal initiation of the Fresh- men. We felt our position keenly and put the newcomers to a severe test, but at the close of our experiment, we discovered them our eguals in every respect. The annual retreat given in late Qctober was a source of great spiritual strength and inspiration to us all. We came out of it more than ever convinced of our obligations as Catholic women and students of a Catholic College. Towards the end of Qctober our thoughts turned to the publishing of our Elmata. To help towards the defraying of its expenses the annual Elmata Dance was held. From every point of view it was an immense success and under the most favorable auspices the l94l publication of the Year Book was launched on its journey. Firm believers in the psychological theory that one must combine work and play, the Seniors became active participants in the winter Basketball Tournament. To prove our prowess, we challenged our Alumnae and after a game vigorously contested, the Seniors emerged victorious. The social side of the evening with its dancing and refreshments was a distinctly popular feature. SENIORS' RECEPTION TO MADAME CASGRAIN In the production of "Pilates Daughter" the Seniors participated regretfully for the last time. We found them again in the annual Debate and the Oral Ex- pression Contest. The Class Play, "Tish" by Mary Roberts Rhinehart, gave our actresses ample scope for their various abilities, and they measured up to capacity and expectation, as everyone agreed. Almost before we were aware of it, Commencement Week was upon us. Mary's Day which opened the week culminated in the colorful procession to the grotto to crown Our Lady. Class Day was made particularly enjoyable by the effective outdoor pageant "Hiawatha" given by the Qral Expression Class. lt was the first attempt at any- thing of this nature, and its success insures its repetition. The lnterclass Play Tournament as usual provoked great competition, but the Seniors, three times the victors, had no misgivings about the results. Our last social function as Seniors was the Senior Ball. What pleasant mem- ories of it we shall always have! The recollections of that evening of blissful delight can never be effaced. We indeed enjoyed to its full every second of that final occasion on which we were together as collegians. Soon, too soon, the day of parting was at hand. Beautiful though the ceremony of Commencement, thoughts of leaving our Alma Mater filled our hearts. Happy years, profitable years we had passed at Our Lady of the Elms, and now they were formally to end. But the spirit we have acquired shall stay with us. We pray that it may animate and dominate our very lives, so that as faithful Alumnae of a cherished Alma Mater we may ever carry aloft the ideals of the Green and Cfold. 5 l SENIORS AT STUDY Page 137 2 'UQ' .0 ,, .4 Page 138 ree rafion Here on our campus today we have gathered to mark the pages of time with a farewell tribute to our beloved Alma Mater. For four years we have enjoyed her protection, her patient guidance and her blessings. Now, in return, we wish to leave some lasting token of our love and affection. And so we plant this tree, the tenth of its kind to find a memorable place on our college grounds, in the hope that it may stand as a living pledge of loyalty and gratitude. lust as the slender elm will grow year by year in strength and beauty of form, may each of the members of our class grow in strength of character and beauty of soul. For although we, too, are like young trees which have taken root in the truths received here, we must henceforth, unsheltered and unafraid, stand firm against the storms of the world. The source to which we look for special protection and graces is Our Lady of the-Elms. She looks with favor today upon the planting of another of her trees. lt is our fervent prayer that she will enrich and care for its planters through the years to come, until some day, the fruits of her harvest may blossom gloriously in a world where time is lost in the bosom of eternity. Mary de Paul Power Cf 'MM a 5 if L After four happy years at the College of Our Lady of the Elms, the hands of the clock point to the hour of our departure. However, before our final adieus, we, the Class of '41, who have achieved so many successes during these days quickly evolved into four short years, wish to make some bequests to our col- leagues. To our college we will our constant devotion and firm assurance of our cheerful assistance in the affairs of her Alumnae, ever mindful that each of us wishes to be the "ideal Elms girl." To the Faculty we express our deepest appreciation of their untiring efforts to instill into our hearts not only intellectual truths, but also moral principles that will remain with us through the years. To the various societies we bequeath our sincere hope that each will be a shining light in its particular field. To the Sodality, we turn with a warm heart. lt has played an important part in the development of our characters. We leave to it a deep and abiding grati- tude and the prayer that it may continue to aid our successors. To the Musical Clubs we will as efficient directors as we have had, and thus their success will be insured. To the Dramatic Club we leave the hope that they will succeed in finding an actress as versatile as our Cornelia Otis Skinner. We urge the Language Societies, French, Spanish, and Latin, to continue to develop an appreciation of the respective tongues, and an increasing enthusiasm in their use. To the Science Club, the wish that the "Triad" which came into existence this year under the inspiration of the new professors become bigger and better. To the Debating Society, the fond hope its persuasive arguments continue to echo at Our Lady of the Elms. To the Athletic Association we will our basketball championship, which We achieved after four years of struggle. May our successors learn that "where there's a will, there's a way." To the library we will our literary efforts. May they be an incentive for those that follow us in the path of time. To the luniors we leave the honors and dignities that come with being Seniors. We know that they will live up to their important positions. To the Sophomores, our Sister Class, we say "Keep up the good work." There is little doubt in our minds but that they will continue to be first in every flask they undertake. Their success in the past indicates a glorious future for em. To the Freshmen we bequeath the poise and confidence that is a fitting recompense for their year of trial. And, now, characteristic of the Senior generosity, each member of the Class is free to make her own special bequest to a particular beneficiary. In testimony whereof, we, the Class of l94l, set our hand and seal of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and in the presence of witnesses declare this to be our last will the fourth day of I une, nineteen hundred and forty-one. Mary I. Noonan Page 139 CZCLJ6 I"0l0 GC? New York, Iune 9, l951. Dear Diary: This has been the most wonderful day! I lunched with Mary Callahan at Rockefeller Center and she was just beaming with delight at the latest accom- plishments of Science. She Wore her usual confident expression, the one with which we are so familiar, and which indicates that her side is about to win our old Science versus Literature feud. This is really amazing! It seems that last night at a dinner party she had encountered the learned physicist, Doctor I ames Carmody, CYes, he is a cousin of our own Elms' Doctor Carmodyl who told her about his new 'lPhonavision." This instrument actually makes it possible for you to see those with whom you are conversing over the phone and to visualize the circumstances under which they are speaking. "Now," said Mary, "this is the best yet. I have persuaded Dr. Carmody to let us borrow the "Phonavision" for the afternoon. We can see anyone we desire, wherever she is. All we have to do is call her up. Now is not Science the most wonderful thing in the world?" she finished triumphantly. Mary's great interest in all phases of all things scientific continues to amaze me. For, behold her, not even a Chemistry Research worker now, but married and presumably occupied with a house in Long Island. Her suggestion really sounded novel, however, and I was heartily in accord with immediately setting out for Dr. Carmody's laboratories. Suddenly an idea occurred to me. It appeared like a big undertaking, but so much fun, if we could do it. "You know," I said, "it is just about ten years since we were graduated from Our Lady of the Elms. Would it not be great if we could get in touch with all the members of our old class and see them in action. You remember how we used to say 'I wonder what we will be doing ten years from now.' Would it not be fun to see?" Mary was enthusiastic. Both of us could hardly wait to see what was going to happen. In no time at all we stood before the instrument, ready to put it into action. First of all, we called Helena. This seemed like a good idea, because we both saw her frequently and so would not be disappointed if the 'lthing," as I called it, failed to work. It did work, however, and there was "Mademoiselle Helene," noted designer and modiste, looking as chic as ever in her Fifth Avenue Estab- lishment. Simultaneously Mary and I said, "You look lovely," and then laughed. Helena did not know what we were talking about. We promised to drop in soon for new summer gowns and explain the whole phenomenon to her. Helena made us think of "Chickie", and so we called the office of "The Nation's Science Times" in Providence. There were Marie Callahan and Flora Millette, editors of this nationally famous newspaper, working madly to get it to press. It seems that their "Triad" experience had proved invaluable to them. They were quite interested in the "Phonavision" and promised to send a reporter out to cover the matter immediately. We both wanted to call "Blondie" next. In two minutes Boston connections were made and we were talking to Catherine Ioseph who was seated behind the executive's desk of Boston's largest Medical Social Service Bureau completely surrounded by notebooks. There were hundreds of them. She talked enthusi- astically about her work and only interrupted once to ask a clerk whether case No. 1897 had measles or chicken pox. We saw that she must be very busy, so we shortened the call, promising to run up to Boston to see her soon. Page 140 C 1 Q s x r'? , ,. -.uf 1- I tg 1 CLASS DAY MONT MARIE DAY 'ff PIC 1 F ,Il .

There she was, secretary to the head of the United States Treasury De- partment. There must have been a dozen clerks about her desk, all armed wit.h graph sheets and perplexing problems. With an ease similar to that which she had displayed with puzzled Freshmen, at Our Lady of the Elms, she quickly disposed of each problem in true mathematical order. She told us that Mary O'Donnell was now living in Arizona and that we ought to call her next. Mary was surprised to hear from us and quite as enthusiastic as ever over surprises. We could see that she had been entertaining at tea. When we told her this, she was astounded. She then explained that she had fulfilled her two ambitions, to live in Arizona, and to attend a large university graduate school, and, that as a consequence of the latter, she had married her professor and was now engaged in entertaining other faculty wives. Of course, she was quite as we had always said she would be, the lovely society matron. 'lDid you know that losie Murray is out in San Francisco?" l asked Mary. 'lShe should be next geographically." losie could hardly believe that we were actually seeing her, although separated by so many miles. She explained that since her marriage she had been traveling all over the world and writing books and articles on world affairs. We told her that we read all of her articles and were very proud of her accomplishments. She insisted that our old current events discussions in the history class had first stimulated her interest in what was actually happening in all parts of the world. Of course Mary Desrriarais was in Hollywood, so we'called her after We had said "Good-bye" to losie. Mary delighted us by proving to be as friendly and natural as ever. We saw that being the nation's most popular actress had not turned her head at all. She was just then working at her latest picture "Made- moiselle Dances," but she said that nothing could keep her from chatting with her old school friends. "This is fun, Mary", l said. "Let's call Helen Meagher next. She is down in South America, is she not?" The connection took longer than usual, but soon we heard an efficient young voice saying "Si?" lt was Helen, secretary to the head of the Navy De- partment in Buenos Aires. She quickly changed to English when she heard our voices and we had quite a talk in our allotted three minutes. Shirley Sheridan in Springfield was the recipient of the following call. Shirley, we saw, was arranging flowers for the tabie of her living room. She explained that she and her husband were entertaining at a dinner party in honor of lrene Cavanaugh who had " V 'Webb '- just returned from a motor trip to fi' , -. Alaska. She said that Irene now owned " f. L ' l a beautiful Cadillac in which she 'A' ' " toured the country and that her v lvl' "l 1'-, '. A! 'ji gift? Travelogs were sought by the various f .ff newspapers. She told us that lrene was ' -. out motoring now, so we would not find ' . ' her at home. ' F ., . When we had finished our conver- " ' '. ft' .L , 'Q ', 5 SENIORS AT GROTTO-CLASS DAY Page 142 sation with Shirley, Mary and l were beginning to feel that our class had done pretty well. The idea of achievement brought Margaret Riley to mind, Margaret of whom her class had expected such high accomplishment. Margaret was in Chicago, we knew. We located her at the Riley clinic. She had made progress. Being head of the most progressive medical clinic modern science had produced was a success in keeping with the promise she gave in college. She looked just as pretty in her white uniform and rubber gloves as she always looked in evening gown and long white kids. Margaret told us that we could reach Mary Noonan in Great Barrington. That only took a minute and there we were talking to Mary. We asked her what she was doing and she said that she had just won the Stockbridge Women's Golf Tournament and that very evening she was to play the violin at the annual con- cert given by the Summer School of Longewood. We were amazed at this combination ot the athletic and artistic, but we knew from college days that Mary was well capable of doing both. The thought of music suggested Mary Power, and in a minute we were talking to our old friend in Petersham. She came to the phone and in answer to our question explained that she was working on a new concerto. She promised to visit us in New York the next time she came to Carnegie l-lall and we hung up, already looking forward to her visit. Mary Callahan said that Beth was down in Millville teaching and that she ought to be out of class by that time. We called her home but they told us that Beth was over at the school gym coaching the girls' basketball team-and that in the warm weather. Hum! Beth, with whom we talked in a few minutes, said that the girls liked basketball so much that they played it all year. She told us that we ought to see her cheer leaders and that all ot her team had special train- ing-tables which she supervised, just as 'she used to at O. L. E. We said "Good-bye" to Beth and thought at once of Oakie. Oakie is now Doctor Mary O'Connor, foremost New England bone specialist. She gave us a minute of her very full schedule to explain, as we had guessed, that she had decided to become a doctor, and in par- ticular a bone doctor, after her memora- ble experience in Senior year at col- lege. We congratulated her on her success and then began to wonder if our President, Constance Stiles, had also gone into medicine. In Holyoke we located her. Surely enough, there was an M. D. after her name. She was delighted to hear our voices and said that Mary Donoghue had just dropped in to see her, and, na- turally, she invited us to talk to Mary. Mary, as modestly as ever, shrank from speaking of herself, but Connie inter- rupted her to say that she was principal of a Holyoke Grammar School, and that so popular was she with all her little pupils, that she received an average of a basket of apples a day! We called Kathleen Duggan, who, looking as beautiful as ever, explained that just now she was modeling her own gowns for a New York Fashion Designing Contest. She said she would be sure to SENIOR MASQUERADE Page 143 Page 144 come to see us and explained that she frequently met Helena in her work. Mary Smyth I knew to be a writer of children's stories and, as I expected, she was now living in Philadelphia. She was very sweet and shy about telling of her accomplishments, but as we insisted, she finally admitted having just published the juvenile book-of-the- month. Congratulations were certainly in order, and Mary and I gave them to her, feeling still prouder of our class. Helen Connors we called in Springfield where she was working as dietitian in Springfield's new "Hotel for Women." She said that all of her experience as head of all of our refreshment committees at school had given her an interest in this work, in which she had successfully engaged since college days. It was growing late, but we had only two more classmates to call. It took just a second to contact Eileen Shea, now Editor of the "Mod- ern Woman's World" here in New York. We had read her latest book and told her how much we enjoyed it. Eileen admitted that being editor of the nation's most important woman's magazine was nothing in comparison with being editor-in-chief of our Elms' Year Book of '41, "Now to call Kay Gibbons," said I. "Wait until you see what she is doing," said Mary, with a knowing smile, as she proceeded to make the connections. It was the Worcester County Trust that she had called. There in the office of the President, behind the President's desk, in fact the President herself, sat our old business manager. "Hello," said Kay in the most Kay-like voice. "Yes, I have realized my ambition. I have two hundred clerks under me. Is it not marvelous?" It surely was "marvelous" and as we left the laboratory, I was compelled to admit to Mary that science surely is wonderful. Rita I... Mulcahy And now, dear Diary, though you are not mine, may I record an impres- sion? Since I meet Rita Mulcahy fre- quently, I need no "Phonavision" to inform me of her progress. There in the very capital of our nation, in the Library of Congress, she has succeeded Archi- bald MacLeish as chief Librarian. Her knowledge of books took her to her de- sired goal, and daily makes her invalu- able to her host of assistants. I think-that she will be surprised when she sees this entry, dear Diary, don't you?

Donoghue sf -'4 ig.: . , -ag' 1. -Q sc," H: -1 - ' If--' A . . a V ' I '-'lf'-Asif BACCALAU REATE PROC ESSION Klarftf ay When Mary Roberts Rinehart's "Tish" stories first appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, they were received with such great acclaim that Americas most gifted female novelist was compelled to write an entire series ot the classically- hurnorous "I'ish." Later the theatre turned these stories into a delightful, gay, modern comedy, which the Senior Class chose to present in the Veritas Audi- torium. The leading characters received the Capable, intelligent support that was necessary. To say the production was a success is to put it mildly. W' e shall always remember with the spirit of youth in her heart, the gleam of Chief in her eye, and the joy of life in her whole personality. The uproarious comedy made our dignified auditorium echo with laughter. Even Mary Roberts Rinehart herself would have appreciated our efforts in pre- senting the escapades of blunt, outspoken and entirely lovable 'Tishf' Kathryn Gibbons, in the 'dtle role, seemed rnadeto order for the part. She was ably "flanked" on both sides by the funny "hay-fever" victim Agme, played by Margaret Riley and the roly-poly Lizzie, a difficult role admirably portrayed by Helen Meagher. Mary Noonan was delighttul as the charmmg Charlie Sands. Tish's young nephew, who lost no time in winning pretty Ellen Leighton, owner of The Eagle Hotel. Mary Callahan played the part of Ellen to perfection, and whenever in future years we feel inclined to have a good laugh, the recollection of Mary O'Connor as Sheriff Lem Pike will satsty that desire. The cmer male characters were represented with ease and naturalness by Kathleen Diggm, Irene Cavanaugh and Flora Millette. Constance Stiles as Dorice Gaylord of Hoty- wood, Mary Desmarais as Bettina Trant, novelist, Shirley Sheridan as Callie Hopkins were convincing in their various roles, while Shea as Chazita, though sparing in her words, took the house when she fmally proved mat Charlie was a splendid English teacher. The stage direction was a work of almost professional technique under me guidance of Helena Butler, and the properties and sound were taken care of by ,Marie Callahan and Elizabeth Everett. Instrumental selections from musical comedies were played between the acts by the College String Ensemble, with the versatile Mary Power at me piano.

Roberta Decker Springfield Chapter Gertrude C. Hallein Worcester County Chapter Louise M. Welch Solidifying and fostering friendships in the Americas, North, South, and Cen- tral, in a world fraught with unrest, selfishness, and discontent were the salient features of one of the most successful social functions of the l940-1941 program of the Alumnae Association of the College of Our Lady of the Elms. Newspaper columnists, radio commentators, and magazine contributors have been accen- tuating the necessity of these processes. Permeating the Hotel Sheraton, Springfield, was a South American atmos- phere furnished through the discussion material of Professor Frederick L. Conlin of Westfield, guest speaker of the Springfield Chapter at a Sunday afternoon tea. New avenues of adventure were laid open as he related his experiences on a recent South American trip. His recital of many interesting incidents and anecdotes added South American "local color." The Fourteenth Biennial Convention of the International Federation of Catholic Alumnae was held in historic Richmond, Virginia from October eight- eenth to the twenty-second. The president of the Elms Alumnae Association was chosen to represent the Association at this convention. An inspiring gathering of more than a thousand delegates, alternates, and religious representing Catholic Academies, Day Schools and Colleges scattered from Maine to Wash- ington and from the Canadian border to the threshold of Mexico gathered at the Hotel lohn Marshall to discuss matters of religious, educational, and political importance. Brilliant addresses were presented by the members of the Catholic Hierarchy of Virginia, the Governor of Virginia, the Mayor of Richmond, and national leaders in the fields of Catholic Action, education, motion pictures and social service. Recognition was given to the delegate of our Alumnae Associa- tion by placement to the nominating committee whose primary responsibility was the preparation of a slate of international officers. Participating in a program of Catholic Action the Elms Alumnae Association successfully sponsored a concert of liturgical music by the Pius X Choir of New York City on the evening of February 20th at the Municipal Auditorium in Springfield. Miss Mary Ellen Quilty and Miss Mary Louise Carolan of Spring- field were co-chairmen of this outstanding event. An effective demonstration of Catholic Action was observed on Mother's Day when members of the Holyoke Chapter gathered for their annual Com- munion breakfast. Similar gatherings were held on subsequent Sundays in Springfield, Northampton, Pittsfield and Worcester. Members of the clergy on the faculty of the College of Our Lady of the Elms were the guest speakers. Supplementing the activities of the various chapters in establishing and maintaining scholarship funds a variety of social functions .was conducted throughout the state. These socials included card parties, fashion shows and formal dances during the Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter recesses. Four of our five chapters were represented at the State House in Boston on April third to express opposition to House Bill 2035 relative to birth control when it was heard by the Committee on Public Health. A letter was sent to the presi- dent of the Massachusetts Chapter l. F. C. A. voicing the opposition of the Elms Alumnae Association to the passage of the bill. Our Alumnae Association also went on record as vigorously opposed to House Bill 2035. Letters and telegrams of protest were sent by all chapters to the various members of the Committee on Public Health. The 1940-1941 program of activities closed with class reunions and a recep- tion for the class of l94l during Alumnae week-end in l une. Page 147 Page 148 The Elmata Staff realizes that the task which they had been given would never have been accomplished without the assist- ance of those friends who have given aid both financial and moral. We are conscious of a deep feeling of gratitude to these our good friends. The Senior Class, through the Elrnata Staff, gratefully "acknowledges" their kind assistance. l300K w L Ur. -x . .Q , .,,, I, lg, V v U , A SP7 "- " 1 V N . .,,,... .gggils A ' . as 'E ' V ' z ,Ll gi , Nm- 4 X' .
