EUHEQE of Uur Lady of the Elms
Mary C. McDonnell
Mary A. D I
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
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.
THE MCDST HEVHHHND THOMAS MARY OTKARY, DD
Bughop of Sprmqileld
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."

Time can never efface the vivid memories that We
cherish of our campus with its masterful timepiece,
powerful ruler of all it surveys. The intimate silence
of chapel, and the quiet shaded lane spreading to
the grotto Will not become vague to us with the pass-
ing of years. f-lours spent in the dignified reserve
of the library, fleeting moments as We dashed to
class through the corridors of the administration
building, the gaiety and friendliness of Cleary
Hall, these are integral, never-to-be-forgotten parts
of a glorious Whole-all represented in our majestic
symbol of learning, the tower.

"Blessed crre they who give the ilower ot their
dcfys, cmd the strength ot soul cmd body to Him,
blessed ore they who resolve, come good, come
evil, come sunshine, come tempest, thot l-le shorll be
their Lord cmd Moster, their King ond God."
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
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
"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."
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

Wflldt mines of Thought lie deep and inexhaustible!
Hour by hour as time departs, recalling three
years ot daily companionship, we are unusually
reluctant to leave the class ot '45, to sever the ties
of understanding and friendship that Time has so
firmly bound. Fondly we leave you. Carry on as
leaders. Fill the remaining short space ot time with
Proudly manifest the standards ot Our Lady ot

JUNIV R JUS E'BOX
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.
,J ,, Yvvrr ---fzvri
4. "Shoo, Shoo, Shoo Baby"
The Freshmen have measured up to all tests and standards and from re-
placement center are now transferred to primary training, but a few past
humiliations of their fledgling days haunt them yet. 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
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,"

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-
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-
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

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

and loving watchfulness of
these warm sun-flooded days.

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.

O tall, massive Tower, rimmed in gold light
Beautiful is your strength and steadfast,
joyous is your radiance and eternal."
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."
Avis E, O'Donnell
Margaret M. Swords
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
Trcas 1 ITC T
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
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
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."

O strong, bright Tower,
Wlzar oils of Love gush upward,
Wllat 'Truth empowers your flame!
I look upon your glowing citadel,
Hungry to share its light and glory.
O massive, tall Tower!
The magical transformation ot our excited little
Freshmen into Womanhood, serene and dignified, is
a subtle play that Time has enacted in the course
ot one short year. We sincerely regret the limita-
tion ot our acquaintance with you, but have appre-
ciated and enjoyed what We have known. The
readiness with which you have adapted and loved
your newly acguired ideal-Qur Lady ot the Elms-
is shining proot that you will carry her proud tradi-
tions to a glorious end.

INITIP 'HON PA RTY
"Aren't those Seniors terrible?" 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-

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

To see the Hlolly luniors" plunge into a maze of philosophical controversy
is a unique but interesting picture. 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.

Each year the M. I. B. Debating Society seems to reach the peak of its
achievement-yet each term is more successful than the last. Not once during
the past year has it declined the severest challenge, not once has its teams
bowed in defeat to a "worthy opponent."
The meetings are held bi-monthly, when in a decisive, intelligent manner
various subjects are disputed. There are always healed discussions where
definite views are postulated, and each gathering has volumes of information
to offer on post-war problems.
May the M, I, B, Debating Society always continue to conquer the uncon-
guerables and remain as nowgthe undefeated team.

We were Seniors, wearing our gowns with conscious dignity. Now was
the time to employ our ingenuity. Patriotism they wanted-patriotism they
receivedl The Elmata Dance, so synonymous with flying banners and college
tweeds, became a panorama of "Navy Blues" and "Olive Drab." With "Sky
Anchors Aweighu we greeted Williams cadets and mingled the green of Dart-
mouth's fighting Marines with the khaki of Springfields Air Corps. Thus, that

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
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."

"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
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
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."

V UR FRESI DENTS FAREWELL
Excerpt from the Commencement Address of His Excellency
Most Reverend Thomas M. Oleary, D.D.
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,
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.

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
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
DELTA EPSILON SIGMA
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
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.
