Cften it is regarded as a link between the days of present and past. However,the Class of '42 has met with an unexpected obstacle. we are entering our first year of a war that has struck us with blind- ing and bewildering force. We have been required to abandon many of the traditions closest to our hearts,and our Annual Elmata falls naturally into this category. Never-the-less,we have something to leave our college,and future oolligiennes. In the following pages we leave a pictorial and literary record of these years at our College of Our Lady of the Elms. A few months ago,before we realized that this project must be put aside,we had already planned on a foreword. The familiar phrase, Hwhere are the snows of yesteryear?N had seemed fitting to express the experiences of our college days--N-our snows of yesteryear. But now,far from comparative peace and contentment,we are not satisfied merely with looking backwards. Yes,we want to see the results of these four years in retrospection ---- but we also want to see beyond these years,for we want to envision a future dedicated onee again to shining ideals. And so we leave this Pseudo-Year Book to the young women who will follow us,as a memorial to our War days. we leave the hope that this generation may see good will restored to God's peoplegthat men may find themselves in truth and honestyg that we may regain the courage which has been lost in a haze of fem, burnish it to a blazing splendor and pass it on,as a thing of beauty, to posterity. U 5 I 1.4! Y X And here is our background. we are proud of its strength of architecture ---its expanse of lawh--- its simplicity of style. Uifficult though it may be to reflect an atti3ude,we will have succeeded if have caught a hit of the college spirit ix viewing our attempts to reveal the significant points ox EDD col1e4e atmosphere. We waht you to see those places to which we have become so attached---that favorite spot in tFe library---the walk to the grotto---our 'hapel. U qv . If e 'Io 4 1 Q Y 4 0 V 5,,,,93'.

V fl .-4 fl S OUR LADY OF THE ELMS THE PART played in the world today by the Catholic college graduate was the keynote of the exercises at the annual three-day Retreat, conducted by Re erend Peter Dolin, SJ., of St. Roberr's Hall, Pomfrer, Conn., ar the e -jg j College of Our Lady of the Elms. Desirous of inculcating in its stu- ff L! dents the necessity of "seeking first the h ji Kingdom of God," the Elms, in con- 'E' "1 formity with the custom of all Catholic 'Af 33 colleges, sees in the spiritual Retreat a vital means to the attainment of this end. In his conferences, Father Dolin , v e E c discussed many of the problems which -I i fi K4 , confro t the modern girl and pointed out to them their responsibi ities in meeting these problems in an intelli- gent and truly Catholic way. Both resi- dent and non-resident students par- ticipated in the Retreat exercises. THE CHAPEL was the sce e of an impressive ceremony when, on Octo- ber 26, the seniors donned the academic cap and gown, in the Dresence of a large number of relatives and friends. Most Reverend Thomas M. O'Le-ary, Bishop of rhe Springfield Diocese and president of the College, presided at the Solemn Benedicrion. He was assist- ed by Reverend Doctor john R. Rooney, vice-president, and Reverend Doctor jercmmh Sheehan, professor of religion. Reverend Doctor George A. Shea was the master of ceremonies. The addre s was delivered by Rev- erend john F. Duston, SJ., of Weston College. Father Dusron emphasized the significance of the cap and gown and the contributions made by Catholic education. In a stirring appeal, he urged the students to carry on the work of their predecessors and to strive to drive - back the forces of materialism which confront them on every side by 11 con- 5 sistenr use of the spiritual weapons at E and.

Science,perhaps,is the most significant single factor in determining the course of civilization---and especially civilization as we know it today. Naturally there are many phases of Science which are unknown to the average layman. The Monsignor Doyle Science Club provides the opportunity for these unknown avenues to be explored in a manner which is as enjoyable as it is profitable.. The open forum is a favorite type of program used by this club. In this way such subects as plastics in the modern induswnies the ultra-violet ray,and numberless others are dicussed with the purpose of obtaining an intimate view into the extensive accomplishments of the various scientific fields. An increase in knowledge and understanding is obtained by the students as a result of these club discussions. The Science Club attempts also to furnish contemporary information in the field. This is done by the circulation of a great deal recently published material,dealing with the latest: in scientific literature. The Club has undertaken to pulish a concise paper which contains their own views on scientific controversies and oddities in the world of science. The Science Club has a two-fold purpose. lt intends to familiarize its members with all that is new and old in Science it also intends that its members will apply Catholic principlesg to all scientific theory and give a more than material interpretation to the study of Science.

Their meetings might sound like so much jargon to those who do not consider Philosophy their passion,but to these members,every word has a significance--every proof is weighed and debated. Their circles are not vicious ones---they are living examples of the training received in the use of our reasoning powers.

The concept of being is transcendental. The concept of being with relation to its inferiors is analogous with the analogy of intrinsic attri- bution. The principle of contradiction is analytic, most certain, and the first of all principles. The essences of natural sensible things can be known at least imperfectly. The possibles have no actual internal reality but they are not absolutely nothing. The intrinsic possibility of things does not depend on the divine power, nor on the divine will, nor on the divine intellect. The ultimate ontological reason of all intrinsic possibility is the divine essence. Every being is one. Ontological truth is primarily the conformity of the object with the divine intellect, secondarily the conformity of the object with the human intel- lect. Every being is good for itself and good for another The notion of substance is objectively real. Suppositum CHypostasisJ is rightly defined as a Wsingular, complete, and incommunicable substanceng person is a rational suppositum. In created things there exist accidents really dis- tinct from substances. Junior Orals 3 31. It cannot be shown that it is repugnant to the con cept of accident to exist without a subject. 32. There exist real relations both predicamental and transcendental. 33. The notion of efficient cause is objectively real. COSMOLOGY 34. Pantheism is absurd. 35. The explanation of the origin of the world offered by Materialism is false. 36. The world was created. 37. The absolutely last end of the world is the extrin sic glory of God. . 4 38. Bodies are efficient physical causes. 39. There are in bodies final causes. 40. There exist physical laws which are only hypotheti cally necessary. ' 41. Simple and compound bodies are specifically differ ent, therefore there are substantial changes. 42. The not 43. The not ultimate constitution of inorganic bodies is accounted for by Atomism. ultimate constitution of inorganic bodies is accounted for by Dynamism.' 44.

There are three primary grades of life, vegetative, sensitive, and intellectual. 5. In every living body there is a substantial princi- ple, called the soul, which is essentially differ- ent from matter and the mechanical and chemical forces of matter. 4. The vital principle is the substantial form of the body. 5. The origin of life in the first living beings that appeared on this earth is to be directly attributed to the causal influence of God, therefore the theory of spontaneous generation is to be rejected. e. It is most probable that una Aarigia of each natural species in plant and animal life is to be attrib- uted to a special causal influence of God. ADVANCED EXPERIMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY 7 8. 9. 10. 11. Man is endowed with various permanent powers called faculties. In man the senses are faculties neither of the body alone, nor of the soul alone, but of both as con- stituting one composite nature. Man is endowed with an immaterial perceptive facul- ty called the intellect, which is only extrinsical- ly dependent on the brain. It is most probable that the intellectual faculty is rendered proximately disposed for the apprehen- sion of a definite material object by an intrinsic determinant which is the virtually intelligible im- pression of the object. ' The virtually intelligible impression which intrin- sically determines the intellect for the apprehen- sion of a definite material object is itself pro- duced by the 'Intellectus Agens' as the principal efficient cause. 12 15 Senior Orals 5 Man is endowed with an immaterial appetitive facul- ty called the will The human will in many of its acts enjoys a true freedom of choice ADVANCED RATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY the substantial form of the human 14. The vital principle in man is a substance. l5. The human soul is a simple substance. 16. The human soul is a spiritual being. 17. The human soul is body. 18. The human soul is immortal. 19. The human soul is created by God. , NATURAL THEOLOGY 20. Against the Ontologists we hold that we have no im- mediate intuitive vision of God. 21. The ontological argument is not a valid proof for the existence of God. 22. Kant's moral argument for the existence of God is invalid. A 23. The existence of God as the unproduced cause of the universe is proved with certainty by the 'a posteri- ori' method of demonstration. 24. God is infinitely perfect. 25. God is absolutely simple. 26. God is physically and morally immutable in His own intrinsic being. 27. God is eternal in duration and immense in diffusion 28. God knows all reality by one comprehensive concept. 29. God knows all future events in the free' decree of His own will. ZO. God is omnipotent K kr u .- I . . l'o i 7 1 O I W .111 f- . W. w . N , IL, r . . 'u ' V ' 'lk f .1 .5 Pali ... ln' ' . ." ..

God conserves all His creatures in existence. God's concurrence is necessary in all the actions of His creatures. - God's providence extends to all His creatures. GENERAL ETHICS 55 56 57 58 59 40 41 42 45 44 There are actions which are of their very nature intrinsically good or bad. The proximate norm of morality is man's rational nature, the ultimate norm of morality is the divine essence. Utilitarianism, Sentimentalism, and Autonomous Rea- son are false norms of morality. Concupiscence diminishes and may even destroy the freedom of an action performed under its influence. However, when freely stimulated by man's own will, it makes those actions, if foreseen, indirectly vo- litional. Fear ordinarily does not destroy the freedom of the action that is performed under its influence.. Invincible ignorance destroys the freedom of the act, vincible ignorance does not destroy the free- dom of the act but leaves it free at least in cause. The principal specific determinant of morality is the object. The end of the agent is also a specific determinant of morality. ' Circumstances which intrinsically affect the object or the end of the agent help determine the morality of the act. - e It is lawful to place a cause from which two effects will follow, one good and the other evil, provided: Elk that the act itself is good or indifferent, 2 that both effects follow equally immediately from the cause CBJ that only the good effect is in- tended, and Q45 that there is a proportionately grave reason for permitting the evil effect. Senior Orals ? 45. There exists an eternal law. 46. There is a natural law established and promulgated in the very nature of man and known by the light of human reason. Hence, the theories of the Evolu- tionists, Rationalists, and Independent Moralists are to be rejected. 47. The natural law is unchangeable. 48. Positive human laws proceed from the natural law and have their power of imposing obligation from the natural law. 49. The natural law includes a sanction which is imper- fect in this life, but perfect in the next. 50. A morally certain conscience must be obeyed though it be invincibly erroneous. 51. It is unlawful to act with only a probable or doubt ful conscience, if the doubt cannot be solved di- rectly, recourse must be had to reflex principles in order to form a morally certain conscience. 52. True natural rights exist. INDIVIDUAL ETHICS 55. All men are bound to render to God the worship of interior and exterior adoration. 54. Men are obliged to render public worship to God. 55. All men are obliged to accept divine revelation when it has been made known to them, and to believe the mysteries which it may contain. 56. Indifference in matters of religion is a grievous wrong. 57. Suicide is never allowed. 58. A lie is intrinsically evil. 59. A broad mental reservation is not a lie, but itS unconditional use is unlawful. When, however, there is a grave and sufficient reason, a broad mental reservation is not unlawful. 61, Murder is against the natural law.

This phrase seems to be a summary of the purpose and efforts of our College Glee Club,for,ult1mately,all our vocal expression,whether its reasons be spiritual or no,is a reflection of God's glory, who has endowed his creatures with this soul-satisfying means of making life beautiful. And is not life more beautiful when voices are raised in true and clear harmony? This year the College Glee Club had the splandid opportunity of broadcasting at the Christmas holidays. The program presented was in keeping with the seasonal spirit and was unidue in that it embraced the traditional hymns of various nations of the world. A major part of the success of this broadcast was due to Miss Eileen Heffernan,the Club's talented young directress. Besides this broadcast,the ulee Club presented their Annual Christmas Concert. This concert is a tradition at the College and gives an unforgettable impression. The Club plays its part in many other activities throughout the year. The Mother and Daughter Tea receives its attentionghigh School Day hears this group of young voicesg Cap and Gown Sunday and Baccalaueate Sunday are supplemented by the renditions of the Club. The A Capella Choir is a part of the Glee Club made up of an individual group whose purpose is to render special chorus work Their sphere embraces Mass sing1ng,small group singing,and music sans accompaniment. The Commencement Exercises see the Club in action for the last time and the sound of melodious voices makes a fitting back- ground for this important day. It is well that the young woman leave her college days with the ring of harmonious notes in her ears as a reminder to still sing to God. 'V I 1 I a 4 U , 'M L, I 4 1.

The Society accomplishes tois pur,ose by openins many avenues of thought to its members . Questions ani subjects Nnicn,nere- to-fore,remained outside their particular sthere,are brou5ht into ,rominence by stimulating discussions. But the Society is not content mer,ly to introduce new ideas--- the club desires also to teach its members how to thinklogically and how to Handle deftly these di ferent problems. dpen-mindedness and tolerance are sought always as the results of the right kind of thinking. Another point to be accredited to the Debating Society is the comparative ease with which our young colligiennes make use of the all important art of Qersuasive speech. They firmly believe that good sweakers make gdod leaders. Naturalness is a keynote in all the work undertaken by this club and meets the demand for the informality which is sought today. The M.J.B.Debating Society holds its meetings regularly and oresents very often clear-cut pictures of todays's many and varied problems. It has been active in radio work,cooperatin5 with such colleges as Williams and Fitchburg State Teachers in aerial debates. The Annual Public Debate still nolds an interesting and important place among the major events of the college year. Anyone who has ever enjoyed membership in this Society has found and experienced an influence which cannot be easily shaken or disregarded in future years.

Today's modern world tends to put emphasis OH the utilitarian and consider outmoded the wealth of the QaSt as far as the dead languages are concerned. Therefore, a reverence for classical subjects makes unique our Classical Club. It is the function of the Club not only to preserve this reverence but also to prove that the Culb has a valuable reason for existing. A language,which for centuries preserved our knowledge of literature,history and civ1lization,has a definite place in X the college curriculum. A deep appreciation for Latin literature is gained by the members of the Classical Club when they view intimately the past masters---Horace,Livy,Cicero and Plautus. The study of Latin should be a lesson in living. It should be a love for all that is beautiful in form,in rhythm,in thought. It should carry with it the realization that there has always existed true beauty. If the club has accomplished these points,it will consider its existence worthwhile. The students have made the Latin language more a part of them- selves by the presentation of various plays. nSaturnaliaH pre- sents the pagan interpretation of Christmas and the Christmas season. The members feel that the portrayal of such works in the Latin increase the beauty of interpretation,since Latin is the official language of the Church Crist was to found. The Classical Club prides itself in the work of preservation- a work,begun many centuries ago by our religious,in order that the world might be richer in knowledge today.

On the first day there were old friends to greet and new ones to meet. Hours were spent talking about the activities of the past summer and planning great things for the com- ing year. They were anxious to attend the first informal meeting of the Freshmen in the nRecn room...for these same Freshmen were to be their nsistersn. ELMS SENIORS INITIATE FRESHMEN Traditional Elms Night Held After having passed the gruelling experiences of their own initiation week two years before, the Juniors could sit back and enjoy seeing other classes put through their paces. It was easy to discern the Freshmen on the campus with their black stockings, pigtails and long hair rib- bons bearing their names in large letters. That terrible week being completed each of the Juniors entertained her Freshman sister at the annual Elms Night party. After an hour or more of enjoyment in O'Leary Hall the entire student body went to the Administration Build-X ing for the formal initiation of the Freshman. Now they were full-fledged members of the College of Our Lady of the Elms and could look forward to spending many happy hours under her roof. FATHER DOLAN GIVES SPIRITUAL RETREAT In October the annual spiritual retreat was given by Father Dolan S.J. Everyone entered into the true spiritual significance of the retreat and for three days silence and contemplation reigned on the campus. SENIORS RECEIVE CAPS AND GOWNS In an impressive ceremony in the Elms chapel the Seniors received their Caps and Gowns thus formally entering their last year in College. Now that the Seniors had received their Caps and Gowns and the Initiation were over we seem to settle down to hard work...for College life has another side to it besides the above mentioned activities.

To-day, we are seniors, standing on the threshold of graduation. Before taking that eventful step, we pause for a moment to review the accomplishments of this, our last year, as our first three years are recorded in previous Elmatas, and it his superfluous to reiterate them. Our first official act as seniors was the initation of our beloved freshmen. They have performed many and mernial tasks for us, and won a definite place in our hearts- a place from which they have never become dislodged. The annual Retreat in October was a source of spiritual comfort to all of us. We emerged from it with a deeper knowledge of our obligations and responsibilities as Catholic College Women. h h The annual Elmata dance was held in november, to defray the expenses of the year book we expected to publish. The dance was a financial as well as a social success. Encouraged by the outcome of this event, we participated in the Basketball Tournament with our Alumnae. They provided the athletic prowess, we, the social atmosphere. Consequently, the game and dance were both a huge success. Katherine Walsh upheld the senior class in the Oratorical Contest. The Class Play, uAngelica,Inc.n presented the opportunity for the seniors to display their histrionic ability. Class Day provides the opportunity to prophecy as to the future of our class mates and recall our collegiate past through the class history. We opened our Glass Day program to-day by plant- ing the traditional Elms tree, that future generations might be aware of our one-time presence here.

We are looking forward to the Interclass Play Tournament to-night, which we are confident will stimulate justifiable competition and provide worthwhile entertainment. Our Senior Prom, to-morrow night, will he our last social event as cillegians. With Dol Brissette and his orchestra to provide the musical background, we are anticipatin5 a most enjoyable evening. With Bacculaureate Sunday and Graduation Lay on Monday next, our formal training at Our Lady of the Elms will be concluded. We go forth with this thoughtm tnat Commencement means not the end, but twe beginning of a new era in our history. 5 'fv" YI" n ' r gr-sink SOCIAL HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR The first social of the year was the annual Hallowe'en party given by the Sophomores. Their entertainment was most interesting...a Hit Parade based on several of the popular songs with very clever bits of pantomime. After this the usual Hallowe'en refreshments and a super time was had by all. As November approached all began to look forward to the Elmata Dance. This being a very popular event it was well attended by a goodly part of the student body...the Junior class being well represented. A collegiate theme was used in the decorations with hundreds of college banners all over the school gym. 1 With the grim news of the declaration of war still in the air the traditional Christmas party was given with a portrayal of Christmas in various lands as a central thought. While members of the student body dramatized these scenes in the Rotunda the College Glee Club sang the traditional carols in the balcony. At the end of the program the lights were dimmed and the members of the Glee Club descended to the Rotunda with lighted candles. As is customary there was a kind old Santa who distributed gifts to the faculty and student body. After our party came the extremely welcome Christmas holidayshand early the next morning the campus was emptied. Shortly after the vacations the Seniors and Alumnae played their annual basketball game...with the Alumnae trimming us 15-6. This game was followed by an enjoyable sport dance. Meanwhile the Juniors were getting started on the most gala event of the year...the Junior Prom! In order to cover some expenses thy held a Bridge and Tea which was very well attended. Gertrude O'Connor was a capable General Chairman ably assisted by Barbara Houlihan with all the class doing their share. , c Alice Kane was elected Chairman of the Prom with Margaret Tierney, Claire Donahue, Elinor White, Anne O'Connell, Katharine Shea and Ida Belanger as Chairmen of the various committees. The large crowd present danced happily to the music of Ken Reeves Orchestra 'til one. Red, white and blue were the predominating colors in the decorations turning the gymnasium into a veritable fairyland. The memories of the Prom were with us many a day and then with the arrival of Lent our social life was discontinued for a period and all settled down to a period of prayer and contemplation in preparation for Easter Sunday. In May Mothers were honored at the customary tea on the Saturday previous to Mother's Day. On this day the Mothers of the students were the honored guests at the Elms. A short entertainment was presented for their enjoyment followed by the presenting of flowers and favors. Y 'Wi ELMS COLLEGE CONTRIBUTB5 TO CIVILIAN DEFENSE College girls do their part for U.S.O. and Red Cross. This year was threatened by the dark clouds of war and by tHE actual declaration of war. Everyone was trying to do their bit for the boys who had been drafted or who had enlisted in the American army. Early, a dance was given for Westover by the Alumnae of the College of Our Lady of the Elms to which the girls of the College were invited and which they eagerly attended. This dance was followed by a Reciprocity dance given by Westover for the Elms. However the work of the Elms was not limited to attend- ing dances. They showed their spirit by turning out one hundred per cent to from a knitting unit. A course in First Aid was started and attended by the majority of the student body. OF INTEREST IN THE FIELD OF SPORTS The first major event was the Senior-Alumnae Basketball Game. Although the student body had hopes of upholding their honor the Alumnae team proved themselves the super- oor and the final score was Alumnae 15 and Seniors 6. After the mid year examinations followed the exciting ihterclass games. The spirit of rivalry ran high as the teams from each class entered the gym with a determination to win. With a remarkable team the Junior class came thru the season with flying colors. After the basketball season had passed for another year the Ping Pong Contest was played out with all classes participating. In the spring more interclass games were played this time in softoall, followed by the annual tennis tournament. In May the Athletic Association gave a Field Day. The whole student body par- ticipated in the various sports which were followed up by a delightful hot dog roast. COMMENCEMENT WEEK The end of another year had come and preparations were afoot for Commencement. In honor of Our own Queen May Day was held on the Thursday of the important week. In the Class Day activities the Juniors bore the daisy chain. In the planting of the tree the Seniors completed one of their last acts as members of the College. The major social event of the week was the Senior Prom. And although hearts were happy and feet were light there was a tiny note of sadness for this was the last affair the Senior Class would sponsor and all thw underclassmen knew that their faces and happy spirit would be missed. Commencement week ended with Baccalaureate Sunday and another school year was finished. YV , H W. 14, 1 l 4 . V 11 . 1 Q , ni . ' W 1 lf 51 3 we M , H V, Ii ! 5 , fl NN Il 'x ,I .
