McDonnell Business Mcmciger Mary A. D I 794 FOREWORD As Time, the essence of life, is enshrined in our symmetrical, ascending tower, the stately clock sym- bolized to the Class of '44 the center of our college activities. lt has looked down from its supreme lofti- ness upon grave, sombre baccalaureate columns, it has passively scrutinized the colorful May-time pro- cessions and the rainbow-hued daisy-chain, it has cynically smiled at the frantic student who, gazing distractedly up at its disinterested countenance, has found that the restless indefatigable hands do not wait for those who falter. The Class of '44 knows that the precious minutes solemnly cast aside by the golden hands have not been wasted ones. Rather they have been rich in the full satisfaction of literary and scientific pursuits and have firmly tied the undetachable bonds of true friendship. Now we are leaving the shadow of the tower,- the moments registered by the great timepiece are no longer ours as students. The hands of distant clocks will reckon our time,-time forever influenced by our years at Our Lady of the Elms. T51 Hzs Exccl1cm'y THE MCDST HEVHHHND THOMAS MARY OTKARY, DD Bughop of Sprmqileld W1 DEDICA TION As the relentless hands of the College Clock slowly bring to a glorious culmination our four unforgettable years at Our Lady of the Elms, the Class of '44, Reverend Bishop, Wishes to assure you of their sincere appreciation for the countless dreams which you have made realities. You have given us the opportunity to prepare for a deep, Catholic life amidst present chaotic surround- ings. As our college expands to meet in a modern but Christian manner the distending needs of a new World, the deep Wisdom of your choice and decision becomes further apparent. Today more than ever the World needs educated Women, cherishing their sense of values, appreciating and doing what is good and right despite the taunts of a materialistic sphere. Today, more than ever, your Excellency, highest honor and praise are yours. And so with a poignant esteem for the noble Executive of a magnificent Work in their behalf, to you, the Seniors dedicate this lasting representation of those collegiate symbols which have become significantly dear to them. We thank you, your Excellency, and in return offer a promise that by our actions we will always proudly manifest the standards here impressed upon us, and with our promise this,-a fervent "God bless you." l7l vis W , .

Deeply ond reverently we thank the Sisters ot Soint loseph tor the privilege thot wots ours in osso- cidting with them. Blessed ore we who hove bene- fited from their tecfchings cmd principles, intricately woven into the dcfily porttern ot our student lives. Not for individucil glory or prcrise do they lcibor, but only in the sublime hope of imprinting upon mortur- ing minds the tecrchings of the lvlcfster. Moy their hope be reolized in time ond eternityl l39l OUR PAI ENTS "Down the years, and down the days" as faithful guardians ot an endless vigil, you, our dear parents, have loved and led us. Your cherished hopes tor our future, your many self-denials and untiring de- votion encompassing us on every side make us aware that it is not in our power to repay a service so generously, richly and silently rendered. The proud moment that Time now registers when we are awarded the scroll ot our Alma Mater has been made possible through that same love and care. You labor not in vain who build tor God, and we trust that the structure of our lives, moulded by Catholic training, will as the years go on, bring you joy and your reward in the Hpeace that passeth all understanding." l39l 4-A nn ,rw "Be ever strong and stazcl as now Thou art, and ever be the home Of Truthg the heavy arched bow Of care dispel: for them that roam Lifes sea a haven of repose Reflectzrzg Lzfels eternal glows." 40 THE 5 Time forges many links, clasps loonds of friend- ship, alters events and entwines the lives of many in a strange, delightful manner. Such has been our experience in the association with those who will soon take our place in the swift course of college life. ln parting, we wish for you the happiness in achievement that has loeen ours and hope that you, in your remaining years at Our Lady of the Elms, will enjoy the same congeniality, comfort and satis- faction in your associates as We have found in ours 794 S E N I O RS CLASS OFFICERS Prusidunr ........, .........

Scanlon '45 JUNIV R JUS E'BOX SERENA DIE A stream of nickels clatters its turbulent way into the huge gaily-painted nickelodeon, a series of levers presses down, neon lights flicker and blaze over the frontpiece, a record rises, spins slowly, gains momentum, and the serenade beginsl Will you not join in listening and reminiscing? l. "When Youre a Long, Long Way from Home" Tearful good-byes, glad hellos, crammed trunks and catch-all hat boxes, whirling taxis, hopelessly cluttered rooms, new faces, old friends, happy cries, and perhaps just a few moments of loneliness shared exclusively by you cmd your pillow-yes, you're back at school once more, murmuring a reluctant good-bye to summer and looking eagerly ahead to your lunior year. 2. "The Blues in the Night" The wailing of the trombone in this bluest of blue songs calls to mind the playful wailing of the Frosh "babies" during Initiation Week .... You love the way they can "take it," and you admire the way they can "give it"- and very suddenly you feel maternal pride in these young 'uns and you adopt them as your little sisters, and they've proven themselves the finest little sisters for whom you could have wished. 3. "My Ideal" The simple dignity of the members of the class of '44 as they file slowly down the aisle during academic procession on Cap and Gown Sunday, their unas- sumed poise and reverence as they kneel for Father Paul Powers blessing, the resolution and determination in their eyes, mingled here and there with a tear or two, as they head the solemn recession, these are your seniors and as you gaze at them in quiet wonder you suddenly realize that they might well be the ideal to be attained in your remaining college years. t80l ,J ,, Yvvrr ---fzvri Trccisiircr Secretary 4.

Understanding their current outlook on life from vague remembrances of two years ago, you "Shoo, Shoo" their uneasy minds and invite them to that most sophisticated of teas at the Roman Room of the Hotel Highland, and youre very happy about the way the young 'uns are growing upl 5. "The Things That Mean So Much to Me" To many students the most precious days of the school months, the hours that hold the fondest memories and that mean so very much in later years are realized during the annual Spiritual Retreat. This year you have so many things for which to pray, you determine to observe these three days of medita- tion as never before. Through the inspired conferences of Father Richard Hegarty, Sl, you emerge from your vigil with a clearer concept of your role as a Catholic woman in this warvtorn world and a more steadfast resolve to fulfill it. 6. "ln the Blue of the Evening" You can't help feeling a tinge of excitement and a thrill of pleasure as the night of the Elmata falls due. Of course, before the under classmen you act your blase self, but when you see the setting of pumpkins and cornstalks, scarecrows and lanterns, when you glide your svelte presence into the waiting arms of your cadet escort for the night and when you take your unwilling leave to the strains of "Good Night, Sweetheart," in your enthusiasm you'd like to fire a double salvo in tribute to Dorrit Washington and the wonderful group of seniors who helped to make possible such a fun-filled evening. 7, "Say a Prayer for the Boys Over There" The stirring strains of this tender song awaken a brilliant panorama of red, white and blue, the heartening roll of drums, and the inspirational tableau of Mary, Queen of Peace, shedding an aura of light and love over the kneeling figures of a representative military group. Co-directed and staged by Helen Prendergast and Dorothy Savoit, this musical production, "America Sings," f3Il Mary D Murphy Dorothy A Flynn I 4 Sw' IEE!! 22:25 :IEEE F.-.::.-.., juniors foster "France, forever." was the first of its kind to be presented at Our Lady of the Elms and its unprecedented success must have thrilled your star-spangled heart. 8. "Sing Alleluia" And sing alleluia you will on that glorious, longed-for day on which a just peace is established. ln the meantime, however, your college is taking an active part in determining a firm basis for that peace and Rosemary Donahue of '45, president of the International Relations Club, heads a delegation of history majors to the Peace Conference held by the New England Confedera- tion of Catholic Colleges at Emmanuel. Mary Coughlin of '44 is chief speaker and your confidence in her is rewarded by her excellent presentation of the Christian principles of liberty and justice to be applied to lapan in the post- war era. 9. "White Christmas" Gaiety fills the air as the Christmas holidays approach. All cares, from the omission of your daily vitamin pill to the writing of your term paper, are tem- porarily laid aside and to the joyful refrain of "Silent Night" you join with the Glee Club in heralding the birth of the Infant King. Under the direction of Helen Prendergast, the Cilee Club presents a program of Christmas carols of many lands over station WMAS in Springfield. The perfection of that perform- ance is surpassed only by the beautiful renditions of the Christmas story by the combined dramatic and glee clubs. Readings from sacred scripture and the lilt of heavenly airs transform the gleaming marble of the rotunda into a stately palace befitting the majesty of the "jesus Bambino" as you offer Him your heart during this holy season. IU. "They're Either Too Young or Too Old" A swiftly passing Christmas vacation is to be climaxed on your return to school by the Annual Seniorlilumnae basketball game and dance. Looking about anxiously for a date you find to your dismay that all available man- power is "either too young or too old." The Seniors, however, that class that knows all the answers, come through with one of their usual ingenious inspira- l82J tions and convert the dance into a stag Cc'est la guerrell affair. A wearing- tearing game is mastered by the surprisingly nimble Alumnae with an 8-6 score and then an Auld Lang Syne get-together is enjoyed over refreshments. You're convinced that it's still a lot of fun this way, And then there is the thrill of the official opening of the basketball season. After the triumph of your Sophomore year under Captain Ann Malloy, you're looking for new laurels to win, and later you find them and win them by emerging as victor in the inter- class tournament, with casualties amounting to half a dozen bruised shins and five dozen broken fingernailsl ll. "Stormy Weather" Darkening clouds gather on the horizon, restless winds blow ominous warn- ings, thunder rumbles mournfully, lightning crackles gleefully and exams are herel You've known they were coming this month as they always have, and yet again you feel completely taken by surprise. With a Hchin up" express sion you diligently thumb your way through volumes of knowledge and emerge from the chaos of exams with a dogged but triumphant feeling. The storm clouds lift, the skies are clear for four more months. l2. "Stardust" . A myriad of dimmed crystal lights swirl over the highly polished floor, the stardust of yesteryear's memories and illusions, the stardust of future years' dreams and hopes, transport you to a magical wonderland above the clouds. The haunting melodies of dreamers and lovers fill the air through the medium of Larry Lane and his orchestra, the swish of taffeta, a golden ribbon, the gleam of silver wings, the lingering fragrance of a chaste gardenia-yesl It's your very own lunior Prom. Under the able direction of Ann Harcourt, the gym is transformed into a magical world which you enter breathlessly, revel in rapturously, and part from regretfully-with a little of the stardust still clinging lightly to your heart. l3. "Easter Parade" The solemnity of the lenten season sounds the prelude to the glorious rise The Tuniors feature in Glee Club line. T 33 l and surge of Easter. Mounting increscendo during Holy Week the awe-inspiring climax is at- tained on Easter morning. At the dawn of the new season your heart guickens as the quiet stirrings of living things within the womb of earth re- spond to the gentle caresses and loving watchfulness of these warm sun-flooded days. And you return to school for- tified with new flounces and ,L ..,,X.J aff Y. 1' 1 T' :fy 1 f 'ra'-'23, ,. 'T 1" pf -- L- " ruffles, and a cute Breton sailor Chatll for the remaining weeks. l4. "Because of You" The Mother-Daughter Tea is a high-light of May and you proudly entertain your very own mother at a silver tea in the college gymnasium. Ameri- can Beauty roses are given as favors and you try in this insignificant way to express some tiny iota of your boundless gratitude to the woman who has made these years possible for you-Mother. Dot writes more than history. l5. "Moon and the Stars" The traditional Senior ballad creates an aura of romance for the Senior Prom. As their last endeavour the Seniors determine to make it their best endeavour, and you find yourself once more in the mad whirl of swirling skirts, fragrant flowers and 'xborrowedn men. A tiny note of solemnity, how- ever, oershadows the gay festivities as you greet this week-end-your last for the year, the Senior's last for life. lE5, " 'Til We Meet Again" A stately file of Seniors in black caps and gowns, a rolled inscribed sheep- skin, the changing of a tassel, a solemn, tear-dimmed recession as the Alumnae of the Class of '44 leave the auditorium in a body for the last time-and you're experiencing graduation, Your Seniors have heard and are answering the challenge of a stricken world, they are going forth with a reluctant farewell for the stillness of Chapel, the closeness of friends, happy hours in the "Cat," "cokes" at the drug store, fun in the dorm, and so many, many little things that they'll never know again. But youre a Senior nowl Youre taking up where '44 left off-and youre going to make the grade as surely as they did. Best of luck '45. The last few notes sigh away into the stillness, the levers are released, the colored disc drifts slowly to a stop, and the brightly-colored frontpiece fades in the dimness as the neon lights burn low. The serenade is ended. Dorothy A, Flynn. f 34 l JUNIVR DIIECTVIY BLANCHET, IEANNE M. BONNELL, PATRICIA E. BROWN, FRANCES M. BUGBEE, MARIORIE A. BYRNE, MAUREEN I. CHAPDELAINE, RITA M.

E851 THE Sophonwfma, We have always been proud of our "sister class." Now, as you triumphantly reach the halfway mark in your course at Our Lady of the Elms, our only advice is to continue as you have so Well begun. Retain the buoyant enthusiasm and pride in your college that you have thus far shown. With a future as fruitful as your past, We foresee the culmination of your college years rich in success and fulfillment for you, our "sister class." 794 President Avis E, O'Donnell ViCC'P7'CSidC7lf Margaret M. Swords '46 SOPHOMORE Ci-IARMS I had time on my hands. 'What to do? Chestertonl That was it. I had been meaning for some time to read his biography and now the golden oppor- tunity presented itself. I hurried to the closet where it was stored, took the unwieldy volume from the shelf, and opened it expectantly. Alas for poor G. KI for there, between the first two pages, was lodged my silver charm bracelet, each trinket a mute reminder of happy days of my Sophomore year at OLE. I had to smile at the first charm--ea miniature umbrella which fascinated me deeply the moment I saw it. That September was such a rainy onel It did not, however, dampen the spirits of the Sophomores, who plunged into serious work with hearts that were happy, confident and gay. The second token, a tiny white rose, I carefully handled, and renewed the resolution made at the spiritual retreat of that October. Were not our paths surely bedecked with roses, when we Sophomores were so privileged to share in the abundance of graces and blessings afforded us at this time? The somewhat forbidding representation of a skeleton, which hung loosely from my much too fragile chain, recalled the memorable Halloween night, when the Sophs displayed their talent in a style that is yet to be surpassed. To conclude a hilarious evening, we enjoyed cider and doughnuts, candy and nuts. Not to be outdone by their Sophomore sisters, the next day was proclaimed by the Seniors as their own. That Sunday lived again in my memory as I gazed longingly at the tiny academic cap, which even in its ISUI Trcas 1 ITC T SUCTCIdTy insignificance was so strongly symbolic of that wondrous occasion! The Sophs were deeply moved with happiness as they watched the Seniors don their dignified garb and march into the chapel, heads high, hearts proud, and maybe a bit sadl And what followed next? Oh, yes, the Elmata dancel How well I remem- bered it in glancing at the diminutive soldier who ranked "number five" on my chain. It seemed so fitting a charm for that occasion, I simply couldnt resist buying it, since practically every Soph, myself included, danced that night with an escort in khaki or blue. I could not escape a hearty chuckle as I fingered the next token, a cherub of a Santa Claus, wearing a broad grin across his open mouth. Immediately, I thought of Christmas at the Elms and particularly remembered as old St. Nick, the inimitable layne Crean, whose jovial manner and winning per- sonality, so loved by '46, made that party a perfect prelude to one glorious vacanon. A new year, and one which brought gloom to all Sophomores because of the horror of exams, was vividly recalled to my mind as I gazed upon the savage dragons head which I had purchased in a mood of aggression. lt reminded me especially of that biology test I can never forget. And there were others, too, which all Sophs are still trying not to remember. My favorite charm was the one I now came upon. It was only a star, a simple little star, with really nothing compellingly attractive about it. Unim- pressive though it was, I cherished it, because it bore a flood of memories of the Iunior prom when we Sophs danced the eve away to the heavenly strains of "Stardust," O night of nights, and one never to be forgottenl I39l 46 M. Virginia Murphy Mary lane Flood For a moment, I paused in my reminiscence, cmd noticed a decided break between my dance memoir and the one that followed. But, of course, there was a lull in activities then, Pleasant memories of the prom had held the Sophs spellbound, but we finally returned to a normal life of routine and regularity. April, despite her traditional, unpleasant show- ers, conveyed the happy thought of an Easter holiday which was gratefully welcomed by the Sophomore Class. I remember the difficulty that was mine in selecting the trin- ket I now beheld. It was a small Alice, taking time out, and not truly genuine jeweled crown, but for me, it seemed to hold a particular sentiment. Mary's day with all its loveliness and beauty, a day which climaxed a month of outstanding events, including the interclass debate4a spectacle of keen competition, and the assembly in oral expression -a certain guarantee of the talents of our Elmites. A tinge of sadness overcame me as I glanced upon the tenth trinket, a rather poor imitation of a diploma which naturally recalled Iune and Com- mencement. How proud we Sophs were as we gazed upon our Senior sisters and watched them take their final curtain call at OLE. before leaving to assume their role in the vast and frightening world before them. A bit envious, a trifle blue, we longed for the day when we, too, would don the Academic Cap and Gown and adopt the title "Seniors" But one charm now remained on my bracelet. I tondled the small anchor, which shone in its brightness, a symbol of the hope that was in our hearts, hope that our sister class would continue the enviable traditions they had established at their Alma Mater, hope that we as Iuniors would return to our Alma Mater, singing her praises: "We love it, revere it, Our green and gold."

The owe-stricken question wos te whispered by miscellotneous groups ot bewildered Freshmen os they com- pctred notes during thot untorgettoble initioition week. Perhcips such o des- perctte pleot should hctve shcimed us. Perhops we should hcxve been humili- oted ot such obvious reoctions to our torture sessions. But os cill post records hove proven, no motter whcit the public pulse might register, the Closs of '44 is not eosily thworted. Since we did not hctve to wdste time on such drudgery ors mciking our beds, cleoning rooms, ond kept ourselves in excellent physicol condition by ollow- ing the "new elmites" to corry our books cmd extro pctrophernolio, there wos plenty ot opportunity to concentrote on the climox of this prelirnindry initiotion. Mctry Fehily cts generol choirmon wos given the responsibility ol moking this evening on untorgettcible one.

Mcrry Shoughnessy cmd Helen Prendergczst ctcted os co-workers on the scene ot the crime. The Senior Clctss wcts proud to see the victims squirm while the cxudience howled with delight. And so it ended, thot golo occosion which we hod ointicipoted tor three long yeors. Our Cldss enjoyed every minute ot thot initiotion. Cur only tinge ot regret on thot momentous evening wors thctt this initiotion wos our lost. We ere envious ot the Frosh becciuse it wos their tirstvthe beginning ot their w college course. I lll I GLEE CLI B As those "blue Mondays" dawned on campus and found the students in the inevitable post-weekend depression, the gay harmonious voices of Cflee Club would lift us from our temporary melancholy. This was their weekly gather- ing held in the Assembly Room when melodious, youthful voices tried new and old selections with heartewarming enthusiasm. Their tones would fill our hearts with merriment, soothe any pessimistic forebodings of prospective trials, restore us to our natural state of "laugh and the world laughs with you." Reviewing the achievements of Glee Club we see not only private triumphs but public victories as well. The musical revue "America Sings" gave elaborate testimony to the varied scores of its programs. A December broadcast over Radio Station WMAS in Springfield was ex- quisitely done as sweet feminine voices blended softly in Christmas carols. At our own concert held annually in the foyer soft strains of music gave an atmosphere of peace to the portrayal of the yuletide drama. With the coming of spring the air vibrated with music and the Glee Club prepared to serenade our mothers at the May tea. Commencement brought to a climax the glorious achievements of the Club which has instilled in us a love of good music and we leave with innumerable pleasant memories of happy events, made happier because of the heavenly notes that serenaded them. i iiizj I T' Elizabeth McDonnell Darrit Wasliihglah Cecilia Ogazalek Elizabeth McKenna Margaret lvl.

Such a feat was accomplished at the monthly meetings of the Metaphysical Club when the intangibles ot Cosmology and Gntology were given verbal materialization, lt is through these meetings that students discover that much can be learned from the mere consideration of philosophical terms. To hear the Iuniors as they answered objections, advanced proofs all in logical syllogistic form is to realize that St. Thomas Aquinas is still exerting his salutary influence on the schools of philosophy.

Senior Team Lines Up. ,M ai. f F' H331 JV AND GOWN INVES'l'I'l'UR" Selection from address delivered by Rev. Paul R. Power You, members of the Senior Class, have done nothing more than emulate the adaptation of the dress of the medieval days, You are to wear this garb in token of unity and mutual love. However, this unity and love is more or less a material thing. There is a far aredter unity, a unity which springs from the wonders of your faith, a unity which springs from our Holy Mother Church, This unity which you have had for three years and will have for another year being taught to you in the principles of Christian living. My dear members of the Senior Class, you are going forth into a world of reality and actuality, You go forth with the label of a Catholic alumna. You go forth as the label of truth. That is what you have taken upon yourselves, assuming this academic gown today. lt is not enough that you should merely know. Knowledge of itself is of no avail unless it motivated by character, unless there is an appreciation of Christian education and unless it is the force of all that we think, and say, and do The aim of this College is not merely to impart knowledge, but to employ intellect and will in Catholic principles. The traditions in which you have been trained and moulded in the truth, make knowledge your servant, not your masier. You have been taught the right thing. Guide your lives according to the principles that you have been taught here at the College of Our Lady of the Elms and which are manifested in the academic gown which you have receved, then, truly, your life will be a life of loyalty to Christ our King Who has promised us to be Our Way, Our Truth, and Our Life," A H341 rr-rr-,- h!.". l!.'Zr Vfe live in time, so little tmic, And we learn itll .w priinfiilly That we muy' spiirc this lziiiirfs term To practice for eternity. Never did we realize so tully the significance and insigniticance ot time as when, with Father Richard Hegerty pointing the way, we weighed the things of this lite against those ot the lite to come. Retreat, under his able guidance, was truly a withdrawal into one's self, a spiritual ciccounting ot our standing in the eyes ot our Maker, a period ot peace and quiet, troiii which we emerged better able to see things in their right perspective, highly resolved to use our brief time of probation to lit ourselves tor an eternity ot happiness. ln a modern interpretation ot age old truths, Father brought to mind the well-known retrain "smoke gets in your eyes," reminded us that the lure ot worldly attractions may cast a haze over our outlook on lite and we may easily lose our way in the tog of materialism. lie urged us then to continue to strive tor a clear insight into the problems facing the Catholic college graduate today with a view to solving them according to the principles ot Christian ethics. This we now must do. There is no turning back. We can only endeavor to keep our vision unclouded, our judgment true and our wills tirm as we utter a silent prayer that we will never have to otter God the excuse that "smoke got in our eyes."

Q V J R i'l S O R' "All the world's a stage," said Shakespeare, and now for us the stage was set, the actors ready after a summer vacation and the curtain about to go up on the fourth and final act of "Elms '44." The overture completed the last measures, the curtains slowly parted. It was fall again at the Elms. Old students were gaily chatting about summer experiences, new courses and plans for week-ends. At one side Freshmen looking quite ridiculous with their baby bonnets, bibs and rattles, were talking with exaggerated lisps, and with much embarrassment bowed awkwardly to those terrifying Seniors. Such were the antics of Freshmen week. But Elms night was a fitting climax and the dining hall made a beautiful setting for a dinner by candlelight. Every- thing was gay, charming, subdued. The Seniors were impressive as they took their places at the center table. Reggie Fehily was in charge of the affair and her classmates were proud of the success she had made of this first official function of their Senior year. A blue light, stately and ethereal, now envelops the stage and another phase of this drama of life is about to be shown. We see the girls of '44 in a quiet, pensive mood for it is the time of retreat. As a bright light mingles with the blue maze, soft organ music floa's through the chapel window and we see a procession closed by the leading characters in caps and gowns. Their faces are calm and their expressions lofty as they pass on their way to Benediction, but despite their solemn reserve, we know that their hearts are guickened with excitement and happiness. They have donned their cap and gown. Now the cymbals clang in the pit and the serious mood is broken. Music, sweet and low, soft and tender, curls about the stage among the scarecrows and cornstalks of the Elmata Dance. The tempo changes and we recognize tunes distinctly American. The girls are preparing for a pageant-a history of America in song! The chorus in long, navy skirts, white blouses, and brilliant red sashes makes a colorful and appropriate background for the scenes--some serious, some silly, others H421 tender-as the history of our country is portrayed with the songs of each period blending with the historic drama. Preparations are now under way for our Christmas party. The tempo of the drama reaches a high note of tension and confusion but then mellows down to the peaceful melodic strains of favorite Christmas carols. Before us we see the Glee Club at the studio of VJTJTAS singing the tidings in firm, clear tones. The figures gradually drift away and the setting becomes blurred. When the volume increases we find the Glee Club in the mezzanine lobby and we are in the foyer watching the sacred story portrayed once more. Bells ringl The solemnity is disturbed and Santa arrives bearing gifts galore. We are not fooled. VVe know that behind the false whiskers, straggling white hair and pillows is layne Crean, lt is amid shrieks of laughter and delightful atmosphere of Christmas joy that our curtain falls on the first scene of the last act. The campus is comparatively quiet with groups here and there gathered to talk over what they did and what they would like to have done over the vacation. Without warning, the strains of the music from the pit loweri It is the hour of exams. The girls surrender to their subjects, tangle with the theses of Psychology and Ethics, pour over Dante and Don Quixote and study Shakespeare with determination. As unexpectedly as it had begun the solemn strain is ended. The theme trips hysterically up the scale and dances on the high notes as we have a glimpse of the gym in its glorious setting for the lunior Prom. Seniors with their escorts dance to the center of the stage. Light trickles of laughter bubble up here and there and the charm of the music has captured all. There is a new awakening to the song of spring. The campus looks fresh and bright and girls take time out to admire the miracles of nature. Easter comes and after it we see the glorious finale of our production. The action of the closing sequence begins with the May Day exercises at the grotto with our Sodality Prefect, Dorothy Mulry, crowning our Lady. We can feel our- selves climbing up to the beautiful ending as the tempo which accompanies the activities of commencement week carries aloft our dreams. And then, having reached the peak, we see our leading figures on their graduation day. We watch them proudly receive their diplomas and as they rise to sing the Alma Mater, the curtain is slowly drawn on the l'Elms '44." H431 V UR WILL bla I-Iear Ye! I-Iear Ye! Hear Ye!

The College of Our Lady of the Elms has added to her record another year of splendid achievement and today, for the thirteenth time in her history, presents a group of Catholic-minded young women thoroughly trained to cope with the problems facing women in the world today. But come what may, we have no fear for the graduates of our College of Our Lady of the Elms. They leave us fully equipped, not only mentally but ethically and morally, prepared to meet any eventuality which may arise. Here their Catholic Womanhood has been developed to a high degree, they have been nourished with the conviction of sound thinking, high ideals, noble aspirations, and, my dear friends, these are the things that are going to safe- guard, to protect these young women in life as they tread the difficult ways the future holds for them. lt would seem that today the whole world is rushing headlong into chaos, and no one can deny that all this grotesque, barbarous catastrophe is but the logical consequence of the materialistic, godless education that thinks only of stuffing a man's head with facts, making him a member of the animal king- dom of the world, and still believing that he will make progress, The Worth of the woman of tomorrow is to be found not so much in study and learning and social Work, these things will claim your time and attention Mbut your true worth is to be found rather within yourself, in the high char- acter of your Womanly life. "All the beauy of the Kings daughter," remember, "is within." I particularly Want you to realize the importance of the place you must take in the world. Your college days are over. Your Alma Mater, your College, and your Church have taught you to discriminate beauty from sin, truth from sophistry, innocence from guilt. You now begin to embroider the garment of your life. Alma Mater sends you forth. Surely she will hear of you again with every increasing joy. Commencement is over, and we Walk into the future. l ll47j P7'C,XlLlC71f Vtccfllrcsztlent Secrcuzrv T7'CLl.XlL7'C7' Bcrlqslrtrc llnstmz NtP7'flltl7P1,7f1J7l SPTl7lIQflt.'lLl Vx'm'u.'xlcr V UR A LU WN!

McDonough Qtticers Chapter Presidents fl48yl Mary Mr lVlCDOIl0l1Ql1 Mrs. loseplt Reardon Hlta Corrldan Dorothy Zielinslci Kathleen McDermott Mary Sltanney Mrs. Wlllram Lawler Dolores Donlxn Vlrqinla Campbell With the primary interests of lending to its Alma Mater the support of its graduates and of strengthening the ties of friendship among its members, the Alumnae Association of Our Lady of the Elms continues to grow through the years. As a group in the several chapters of our Association we have attempted to keep always uppermost in our thoughts and activities the way of Catholic action and Catholic culture. Reviewing the calendar of activities for the year l943-l944, we find one of the outstanding events in each chapter's program was the Communion Break- fast, a gathering which indeed marks us as Catholic Alumnae of a Catholic College. Another event which deserves special mention was the guestetea. This year the Springfield Chapter held its tea at the College with Sister Rose Benigna Hannon, sister of three of our Alumnae members, as their guest speaker. We were pleased to have this affair socially so successful and happy to indirectly have a small part in the spread of our faith through the work of the Maryknoll Nuns. Our Aumnae members have taken their places in the religious life, in the role of motherhood, in the business world, in the fields of education and science and today in the Armed Service. We are proud of our girls and most happy to welcome the thirty-eight graduates of l944, knowing that as they join our ranks they, too, will bring strength to our Association and honor to our Alma Mater. DELTA EPSILON SIGMA Q Q. The national scholastic honor society, Delta Epsilon Sigma, receives its name from the Greek initial letters of the Aristotelian phrase, rendered by St. Thomas as "Sapientis est ordinaref' i.e., "lt is for the wise man to set things in order." The society, in which the College of Our Lady of the Elms was granted a Charter Chapter, the Alpha Gamma, was founded to afford recognition and encouragement to high scholarship and Catholic culture among the students and the graduates of Catholic colleges and universities. The Faculty and Alumnae members of the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Delta Epsilon Sigma have elected from the Class of '44, for membership in their society, Mary A. Dooley, Dorothy R. Mulry, and Dorothy E. Savoit. The cere- mony of induction took place on Alumnae Day in the Alumnae Room of O'Leary Hall. The new members were presented with the official key and diploma by the president of the Alpha Gamma Chapter.
