Within the sanctuary they sentinel, a thousand other doors lie open-doors to wisdom, to culture, to friendships, to ideals, to the innumerable treasures ot the mind, Comes lune, the ponderous gates will swing back, and another graduating class tiles forth. Into a world ot sunlight and shadow they will take their hopes, their courage, yes, and something more. They bear with them a heritage, the priceless benefits gleaned ot tour years ot college living. It is a heritage time cannot alter, nor circumstances attect. The multi-colored, shitting scenes that have been enacted behind these doors can never be recap- tured or recalled, They have already joined the swelling throng in the misty halls ot memory. It is the purpose of this book to open tor one last glimpse these barred doors. One look. It is enough. And we are gone. lfll E., - MES, iv sm., 1 N.. wig ' mg l. gf .f J 1 'Teb'f , 1 of 4 4 S Q K .

These are they whose lives are lived, in the hiddenness of sanctity and sacrifice. As incense, rising from the glowing cinders, the beauty and holiness of their chosen world have filled our days with the sweet scent of devotion. And as incense, waiting ever upward, so the prayers, the gratitude and affection of our hearts, ascend higher the throne of l-lim Who reads all hearts. l2Ul Przren if "Revered, beloved - O you that hold A nobler nffice upon earth Than arms, or power of brain or birth Omilrl give , To you, who have brought us thus far along the path of life with loving care and guidance, We can say but x'Thank You." For this love, this understanding, for the sacrifice this love and understanding entailed, a lifetime would not suffice to repay you. Yet a lifetime is all We can offer, a lifetime devoted to the ideals and aspirations with which you have inspired us. May We prove Worthy to be your children. l2ll i-I LC' f I x X f I i231 'll ll E Fond scenes LUl'l1'C1'l delighted my youthful exzstencel XX'1'th feelings of sadness I bid -Ye acfienf' AIRVIEW OF CAMPUS And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning . . .U TENNIS COURT So that Sport went hand in hancl with science." l24l -, 5- u I .4 V Qik'..r, ' r V , , Q ,f ,J ' 4' 'LY , ' .

Virginia Murphy Secretary Mary lane Flood i801 fumar auifiaal "The night shall be hlled with music And the cares that infest the day Shall fold their tents like the Arabs And as silently steal away." And filled with music it was, that night of February second, when the tantalizing strains of Al Strohman and his orchestra swept you onto the floor. Like some giant magnet, the enchanting light of a crystal ball caught your lovely image as you danced in a world of white magic. Remember? How enraptured you were, enveloped by the delicate perfume of the fra- grant flowers you wore so proudly! How your eyes smiled in the realization that your lunior Prom was at last a reality. "Bless Them All" you hummed softly to yourself in tune with the orchestra's beat, as your glance fell, in turn, upon the prominent khaki, the navy blue, your very own escort resplen- dent in uniform. Before reluctant good-nights were whispered, you said, "Orchids to Iinny Murphy", whose untiring efforts made this gala event one that will linger in your garden of memories. . . If we can piece our broken dreams Till tawny bright again they gleam It is because of you, Dad." All your heart could ever say, Ann Harcourt seems to have captured in her lovely words you found yourself repeating the day of the Father- Daughter Social. Your Dad was entertained royally at a delightful operetta, one of the Glee Club's best achievements of the year, followed by a dinner fit for the gods. You were proud, were you not, showing off your Dad? Little wonder at the close of the day, that you murmured a grateful "thank you" for the firrnest friend a girl e'er had. "Life and death together fought Each to a strange duel were brought." l81l lmliliiil! 2 Mn. ,-. , CLASS CDF 1947 President Mary T. McManus VicefPresident Catherine I. McDonnell Treasurer lean M.

Scene by scene the age-old story of the Nativity unfolds before our eyes. The figures move quietly to and fro and then, as if by magic, we have that beautiful Christmas scene. The lights are dimmed. One by one twinkling candles glow. The choristers descend the marble stairs at either side of the rotunda, and, singing all the while, they gather 'round the crib. A scene unchanging, yet ever new.

Wirtalla ISSI Fmkmma Folzb The expression on the face of each new Frosh conveyed bewilderment on September twentieth, Registration Day. All were anxiously looking forward to the new and exciting year ahead, New faces were everywhere and all felt a trifle puzzled and not just a bit lonely. Our "college life" actually began the next morning when we assembled to attend the Mass of the Holy Ghost at which we asked for enlightenment in our studies, throughout the year. Our regular schedule went into effect within the next two days. The first week was a trying one, but that was more or less expected, since it was initiation week. Besides the imposed task of familiarizing our- selves with the rules and regulations of "Our Lady of the Elms", we were constantly being teased, tortured and disciplined by our Senior advisors. During these memorable days, the Freshmen were transformed into a rugged football team with practice sessions daily, full equipment at all times, car- rots to build up the muscles and liniment on hand for all aches and pains. This strenuous hazing reached its joyful climax on Saturday evening, "Elms Night", when faculty and students gathered together at O'Leary Hall for a candlelight supper and party, Here, the Seniors proved themselves really wonderful friends in spite of the fear and awe they inspired in us during the week. l89l ln Mid-October books and lessons were set aside, not too reluctantly, for the annual Spiritual Retreat which was conducted by the Reverend Edward Winsper S. l. Those days were rich in graces and blessings for us, for we were afforded an excellent opportunity to see and appreciate things at their true values. For the first time, we realized how fortunate we were to be at a Catholic college. Under Father Winsper's guidance, we were brought to the realization of what each of us in our own small way might do to help bring peace to this war-torn world. One beautiful Sunday afternoon our sister class, the luniors, arranged a tea-party for us, held at the "Chalet". Glowing in the yellow candle light, our faces were radiant with happiness while we sang the many school and class songs with which we already quite familiar. Everyone was deeply moved on October twenty-- ninth, a breezy Sunday afternoon, when the proud Seniors were officially invested in their Caps and Gowns. Dignified in their newly-donned robes, they closed the academic procession that wended its way from the Administration building to the Chapel. Happy we were to have with us again our retreat father who delivered a most inspiring address, in which he happily combined the significance of the investiture ceremony and feast of Christ, the King.

Harcourt, the first edition of the college quarterly was issued in November and met with immediate success. This first issue was followed by a Winter edition and a spring edition in February and May respectively, which proved to be as superior in literary style as the first issue had been. May the success attained by the quarterly, in this, its first year of publication, continue with it in future years. November 22-26 Thanksgiving Recess. Holy Cross-B. C.

The class of 45 stands before a door that is slowly opening to us, It is the door of life we face, and Graduation is, for us, at once an end and beginning, And as we stand, waiting a moment or two. each one of us goes back in memory over this last year at O. L. E. Our last year-a year made up of days that slipped by as quickly as the beads from a broken strand of pearlsl September found the new Senior Class arriving in the dignified attitudes worthy of their position. Soon, however, they became just any Elms girl -glad to be back after a long summer vacation, greeting friends and ex- changing all the latest news, Resolutely they turned to the task of initiat- ing the Freshmen. Then Elms Nightl The Seniors in their first formal appearance of the year made an impressive sight as they took their places about the candle- lit center table. The Freshmen, after a week of strenuous work-outs as they tried, in the role of scrubs, to make a mythical Elms team, could breathe freely once again. Cap and Gown-symbol of our seniority, garment of dignity? On the l-'east of Christ the King we marched in stately procession, wearing ours for the first time. We had seen three other classes don Cap and Gown and pass, too soon, from out the portals of this college, into the world. We fll3l thought seriously that day, of all we had to do well in the short space of time that remained to us. Shine on Harvest Moonl And shine on it did while all the school danced at the years gayest affair-the Seniors' Elmata. Everyone was there and everyone had a marvelous time in the cheerful rustic setting of our autumn ball. The year sped on and, all at once, it was Chistmas. Slender, lighted tapers cast a softly golden glow about the beautiful tableau of the stable in Bethlehem, humble birthplace of the Eiernal King. And lo, He comes, the Prince of Peace, born again into a war-torn world. And thus, with the sweet music of the old familiar carols filling the Foyer, decked with ribboned wreaths of holly, ends the traditional Christmas pageant. Now the Iuniors stepped into the spotlight as they staged their prom-a Winter Wonderland Ball. The gym was a Winter Wonderland that night, transformed by clever fingers, seemingly as skillful as those of lack Frost himself. lt was a memory-making affair. And then, too soon, we raised our heads one day to find that it was Spring. In no time the last precious week came. Our Commencement be- gan with the beautiful and traditional exercises of Mary's Day. Down at the Grotto, lovely and fragrant with the sweet breath of lovely blossoms, we pledged a final allegiance to our Mother as Queen of the May. The other activities of Commencement came and were done, each one a step toward the final and most important-our Graduation. And now we stand, diploma in hand, before the open door. We walk on and out to meet the future that calls to us. May it be kind to the Class of '45 Mary B. Cranfield. flllll Clam Pffopbegf AIRBORNE . . . 1955 "Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. At the sound of the next cough it will be 9:15, time for the latest Walkie-talkie with your Washington cor- respondent, Mary Fitzgerald, brought to you by Chapdelaine's Cough Drops for Cold-Conscious Kiddies. "Greetings alll I-Ias your cough sounded different lately? To avert that wheeze and sneeze try Chapdelaine's, please. "Today is a big day in Washington. Everyone is out, the streets are packed.

"Yes, I would. This trip has been so wonderfull On our way over we carried Rosemary Donahue, the distinguished authority on international af- fairs, and Rita Choquette, minister to France. They lent such a cosmopoli- tan air to the trip. No, I don't know why they went . . . some secret busi- ness, I suppose. "And coming back?

"Pardon me, but . . . why Ali, what are you doing? "Hi, Mary . . . isn't this awful? . . . Lucille and I are trying to cheer up Ioan. Since she got that job as Secretary of the Treasury she is upset all the time. Now it is because we threw out her last Murphy-Scanlon vitamin pill, and she keeps complaining that this plane got her here too soon for her appointment with Mary Mahoney, Co-ordinator of Internal Affairs. Says she'd be two minutes early if she had the energy to descend from the plane which she hasn't, and it's all our fault. "Lo, Fitz . . . Ali, if you want to sing that song again, you'll have to hold the zither. It's all right to hear about the rest of the world going by, but if you don't mind, I'd just as soon watch this time.

Miss Tio and Miss Pelegrina did a splendid job . . . so good that the ln- dians can't speak Spanish any more, Now even the tourisis are confused. The government is quite worried about the whole prospect and they have asked tor a group ot volunteers to reconvert the reconverted Indians. lt is all very complicated but Ann Clancy has chosen Marge Bugbee and Mary Agnes Sheehan to set torth wiQh her.

Clam Poem Farewelll What a depth of subtle feeling locked within that time-worn phrase, Echoing the hearts of maidens, sounding through their chosen ways, Drifting Wraith-like toward the heavens in an aureole of praise, Hurrying the swift recession, heralding the coming days. lust a phrase-yet in the speaking we shall sever friendships tie, Leaving, like pale ghosts, new-shrouded bonds we swore should never die, Tearing life into dream-patches, wherein vivid memories lie. Time it is who bids us speak it-Time whom none may dare defy! Though we answer to the challenge, through our lives' run there shall be Ever shining in the drabness, shining clear for all to see, Holy Wisdom and the Faith we've shared here-like Golgothas Tree- Pointing onward, upward, always-into Gods Eternity.

From the address of His Excellency- "My dear Graduates, these are the last words of your Alma Mater as she bids you Godspeed, and they rnust remind you that your privileges have made you debtors to this college and to yourself and to society. As you leave these college halls Alma Mater says ot you to the world: 'Here are those Whom I have truly educated: to Whom I have given the highest ideals ot conduct and character by Illill whose lives l may be judged. Here are women with noble womanly hearts and high noble souls. But they are more than my students, my scholars, they are my children, and l have expended on them all a mother's care and all a mothers love. It has been my purpose to make them worthy inheritors of the exalted traditions of Catholic womanhoodg prompt in faith, prompt in love, prompt in sacrifice and devotion, ready and able to see the meaning and the virtue of the lowest and the highest service of God. In their ranks will be found no one who would defame the sanctity of marriage. From their lips will come no insult to things sacred. They will always cherish what is splritual and religious True to their ideals, they will scatter around about them the sweetness and the light of their souls' virtues The freshness and beauty of their own lives will keep alive the sacred flame of womanly honor, the hope and the sustenance of the world, And wherever they go they will recall to their sisters the first type of womanhood, and inspire all hearts with renewed yearning for those more gracious things in the world, which alone give to wom- anly life its breadth, its dignity and its glory.
