'These are our realms l41 lF O R lE W O R D Upward till we reach the pinnacle our steps ascend. Slowly the class of l946 has climbed the stairs of success, and now it lingers on the first achieved landing. Quietly in retrospect our minds reflect on priceless lessons learned, while our hearts rejoice in the magic memories of four col- lege years. Pausing in our flight we stand strong in the pride of youth. A heavy mist of peace enshrouds the stairway that our eager feet have just passed over. At the top stretch noble heights of destiny. Momentarily searching back we revel in the beauty of the pattern -knowledge, faith, and conviction woven with Catholic principles-and with firm hearts lift our eyes to the future. l5l STAIRS There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion ISI IN TRCDUCTION CAMPUS C O N T FACULTY IE N CLASSES I7I If S ACTIVITIES PATRCNS Hu E.x1'cHwzc5' THE MCDST HEVEHEND THOMAS MARY OLEARY, DD Emhiwp Qi Sf2T1I'1QfiS1d F31 D lE D ll C A T ll CO N The last steps in our college path bring us to a glorious victory as graduates of l946.

The fruits of our education will not rot or wither. Rather do We promise that they will flower magnificently, augmented by our life-giving faith. lt is a symbol of our loyalty that We gratefully dedi- cate these pages to you, Reverend Bishop, for to valor We pledge faith and to faith We pledge truth. l9l cnt Jcxzrc that you will be always true, noble won I 10 I The end of all learning is to know God H11 Like some low and mournful spell, We whisper that sad word, farewell L121 THE 6 Caught in a web ot majestic archi- tecture, We have passed through glorious college days on our campus, 'Neath the murmur ot elm trees and the echo of marble halls our fond tare- Wells are Whispered.

The solicitous and untiring interest which she has had for the laborers of Christ in fields afar has obtained its remuneration in considerable financial sums for our many Catholic mis- sionaries.

In the beautiful month of May, the month of Qur Lady, an inspiring tribute is paid to Qur Queen. Amid the fragrance of fresh blossoms and the caroling of Sodalists the statue of Mary is crowned by the prefect of our Sodality. The beauty of young girls adorned in evening gowns reflects a part of the special homage. The ceremony is begun as the procession leaves the Administration building and winds its way to the grotto of Qur Lady. As hymns float heavenward 'neath the mantle of blue sky, Mary's blessing descends on each light heart. At the grotto the court assists in the crowning, and each Senior pays a special act of love in the offering of a rose. The gay festivity of the day is marked with due adoration as benedictiori culminates the ceremony in the chapel.

Many modern controversial subjects were freely and fairly discussed at these informal gatherings. The correct Catholic advice always abided at these meetings and the present-day dangers to morality were discussed. The Club has accomplished untold good during the past academic year. It has been accomplishing and promoting Catholic Action and preparing Cath- olic women Workers for a world that needs them badly.

Clever settings and costuming combined with fine charac- terization to keep the audiences spellbound until the brightening of the house lights marked the end of the presentation. ln November the dramatic spotlight focused on the star-studded cast of the perennial favorite, "lane Eyre". Skillful character portrayal caught exactly the right atmosphere for the staging of the eerie tale. The house was deathly still. Critics were generous with their praise, and justly so. The Dramatic and Glee Clubs presented their combined Christmas program in December. The age-old tableau of Bethlehem was presented in the marble rotunda with traditional hymns and glorias descending on the scene from the balcony above. V "Thy Will Be Done" Was the Lenten selection of the Verdeoro Players. The solemnity of the Passiontide offered an excellent background for its presenta- tion.

The Elrnites very capably conducted a panel discussionwaccording to parliamentary form-on "United States and ideological conflicts". The mae terial was thoroughly understood and well handled. During this Week-end sojourn, the social side was not neglected.

The aim of the club is to instill in each member a deep-rooted, far-reaching knowledge, understanding, and love for the language, ideals, customs, and culture of "la douce France". This was achieved by the open-forum discussions of popular French musicians and painters, by travelogues, by the presentation of original one-act plays, and by daily conversations at the French table. The 'Chuchotements des Ormesn - official organ of the club - was eagerly awaited and avidly perused each rnonth. Highlights of the year were the Christmas program and tea, the meetings of the Alliance Francaise Where We heard distinguished personalities as Mme. Mackee and Professor Andre Morize, and the final social coffee hour. lt was a very successful and beneficial year for French enthusiasts. H351 dence PRESIDENT VICE-PRESIDENT Claire M. Geddes Susan E.

Ask Avis f ,NS ,M During this year of activity, the Science Club went a long way towards accomplishing its end, namely, the presentation of scientific facts in an inter- esting and comprehensive manner. Because of the growing interest in photography both as a scientific project and ot pleasant pastime, the trend of thought for the year was focused along that line. A photography laboratory for the use of the science students was established, and instructive lectures on the proper methods of technique for developing and enlarging were given at the earlier meetings of the year. At other lectures the technicalities and chemical applications were discussed with the aid of specially-chosen slides. In March the members of the Science Club were guests of the New England Association of Chemists at their annual meeting which was held at the college. What is lacking in number is counter-balanced by spirit and this club proposes to continue in the future to aid those interested in scientific work. To those who will follow us we leave a society richly endowed with student loyalty, beneficial scientific accomplishment, and unlimited opportunities in the modern scientific world. 11371 0CLOqL!..ACfLOlfl 3 it W 5 A - PRESIDENT VICE-PRESIDENT Bertlzu T.

Monthly meetings were held under the benevolent auspices of "Pere Shea" At these informal gatherings the main topics under consideration were capital and labor, socialized medicine, compulsory military training, and the ethics of the use of the atomic bomb. A special program was arranged for the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, patron of all students, and in particular of philosophers. During this assembly his life and work were discussed in relation to our own philosophical studies, ln interpreting modern problems, each girl prided herself on her ability to present her point of view in precise, syllogistic form. To speak clearly, to think correctly, to argue logically, these were the unflinching standards whereby we set our goal- -an adeauate preparation for upholding the Catholic ideal in the future. 51391 fairway fo ffm ESTZWA , , n ' C '-.4 T 9 A ..

Our realization was as great as the antici- pation that had been growing for three years. On October 28, 1945, We received the garb of academic scholars. Our joy was boundless - our thanks were endless. To those who aided us and those who rejoiced with us We give a special place in our memories. Excerpt from the sermon delivered by Reverend Peter Dolin, on Cap and Gown Sunday It is not without significance that the ceremony for which we have assembled here should have been arranged for the Feast of Christ the King. This college is a tribute to the diocese of Springfield. These halls of learning are sturdy and permanent witnesses to truth. They were builded in sacrifice and gener- osity that truth might be taught to you and to the succeeding generations of the diocese of Springfield and to those daughters of the Church from other sections who are in quest of true education. .f ,,f9"3' From chapel to gym - Cctober 28 T 142 l And, While your education is being completed l '.':ou.a rerngna you Iflflf you will never learn very :nuch :nore than you lea H1621 lH your '3'C'a1fI'1 LR your Q "A-1 lrvsn-,y tr-u4Lx .. - V., ..A.c1 H .- U4 penny catechism.

Reception in gyrh - October 25 11433 OVW' fA8 gd X455 LlIf'6L6!8 The first ot a series ot lectures was held in the auditorium of the Administration building when in October Miss Mary Louise Hickey rendered her adaptation ot "The Barretts ot Wimpole Street". Her cleverness as a dramatist, author, and diseuse captivated lrier audience. "1 A lecture on the lfladonna in art was E given by Father Bernbardt of Weston Col- lege. To every listening student and guest liis presentation ot the Mother of God as an inspiring subject for art was of utmost interest. Using slides as a means ot dem- onstration, be brougtit art right, into the gathering and made it live vividly. H441 The well-known baritone, Mr. Earle Spicer, entertained us with bits of English ballads and folk songs. Music has always held a predominant note ot interest for the girls and that evening we were at the height of enjoyment. Mr. Spicer's friend- liness and talent completed the evening The last ot the series ot lectures was given by Masie Ward Sheed, ot Sheed- Ward Publishing Company. Her renown as an author and lecturer has increased daily, and it was a pleasure tor the stu- dents to be an audience for the lecture "Some American Writers and the Catholic Church". These tour lectures heightened our enthusiasm for the arts. 11453 gfmdfd NS? Dottie, Peg, Iinny, Evie Betty, Avis, Pat "Vv'lien to the sessions of sweet silent thought I summcm up Teineinhrance of things past . . Publication of the Elmata every year at the College of Our Lady of the Elms has become a treasured tradition. Generally, a beautiful thing is a costly thing and in keeping with this the Senior Class, with all the undaunted spirit and renewed vigor that only a newly-won peace can arouse, under the capa- ble and enthusiastic loyalty of its chosen leader, Lois I. Boland, and her com- mittee, gave to the Elms its opening dance of the college year. Truly the mar- ble halls resounded that night with "mirth and cheer." The harvest moon, rustling leaves, and soft music whispered not only happiness but success to a very important undertaking. The Senior-Alumnae basketball game and dance which followed a little later on in the season proved none the less successful. The splendor of the marble stairways, because of their architectural design, has captivated us. To use these stairways for the theme of our yearbook seemed to us a most fitting manner in which to convey all that we wanted to express. 11461 Deadline in the otling Realizing that memory is often a little bit hazy and has need ot gentle prod- ding, the Elmata has endeavored to tix within these pages the happy and carefree adventures ot our lite here on the campus, Each page is a key to a volume ot memories bound in youthful mirth - each page written and edited While memories still are green. Co-operation is the keynote to success and it is with deepest sincerity and utmost gratitude that we offer our heartfelt thanks to all the underclassmen, Seniors, and those interested in our work who so generously gave of their time and effort. May the publication of this book be a lasting tribute and a storehouse ol memories to the Class of '46 Elmata Dance Committee I 147 , The iovwnfm ine Staff A year ago, here on the college campus, the already familiar sound of Tourmaline took on a new meaning, as we found it heralding the first edition of an outstanding collegiate magazine. This year, under the capable and versatile direction of Alice Murray, Editor-in-Chief, and her staff, the faltering steps of infancy were banished and the Tourmaline was promised a place of prominence among the other leading college publications. lntroducing a newly-adopted policy, the winter issue featured a guest article written by an acknowledged master of the pen who willingly gave of his time and talent. "Lady of the Trinity", inspired by the poetic genius of the poet, Eddie Doherty, a prominent member of the editorial staff of the Chicago Sun, graced the pages of this issue. Prominent among the Tourmaline poets this year were Avis O'Donnell and Elizabeth Sullivan of the Seniors, whose inspiring verses are a credit to their poetic talents. From the underclassmen, Mary McManus, Theresa Amiot, Geraldine McCarthy, Claire Fitzgerald, and Eleanor Langton, came contributions also.

Was it not only right, then, that out of this chaos something new and beautiful should be born. All over the world the newness of peace was breaking forth-and so it was on our campus, too, when in April the first issue of our college newspaper, the Elmscript, made its debut. Cries of "Have you seen . . . " "lt's here" echoed forth from the marble halls as each enthusiastic student received her copy. Years of plan- ning and dreaming had at last materialized. To actually see in print the fulfillment of a dream is a joy experienced only by those who have worked tirelessly and endlessly for such an accomplishment. To the editor of the Elmscript, to her staff, and to all who so generously gave of their time and effort, we, of the Senior Class, say, "Well done". May your first issue of this paper ever be to you a shining light to lead you on. To know that you have endeavored to spread her fame proves the worth of her guiding influence. May the Elmscript ever grow in publication, popularity, and prominence. f Sodalicyxol-told ' mmuumyq - J f +aji.g?f1p4.s....

'S Mary McManus, lunior Class president, and Avis planting the l946 Elm tree TREE ORATION The world of tomorrow rightfully looks for help in the solution of its problems to those of us who are being graduated from the College of Our Lady of the Elms this commencement season. Never before in the history of man have we been so strongly convinced that we do not live for ourselves alone. Throughout the entire world there is suffering, destitution, and poverty unparalleled in the record of man. Those people, whose senses have been dulled and stupefied, whose emotions have been torn and stretched to the point of complete unbalance, are the people with whom we are going to meet and to mingle to form a new world. These distorted minds look to us for leadership. We have been thrown the torchl l-low fortunate we, the Senior Class of l946, are to have had four years in the blessed sanctuary of the College of Our Lady of the Elms. Our technical education has been enriched by the spiritual. We have acquired not only the enlargement of knowledge, such as we will need to face the future, but we have received a spiritual balance under the Divine guidance of God through our devoted teachers. lust as our tree which we have now planted spreads its roots for the nourishment and food to sustain it and lifts its arms to God for eguanimity to balance it, so, too, have we drawn from the rich, wholesome storehouses of our Alma Mater and grown and developed in spiritual and mental knowl- edge. Let us, the Senior Class of Forty-six, promise each other as we go forward, never to forget the Catholic ideals of Our Lady of the Elms. ln this manner the world may be assured of our leadership and whole-hearted co-operation in restoring peace on earth to all mankind, Marita D.

Fulfilling our fondest and rnost expectant dreams, they imply far more than a Seniors adieu, Rather do they bear the cherished memories of an unfor- gettable year - a year which, to our Way of thinking, was "slow in the coming" but Hquick in the passing". F-the first important letteremajestic in its height, recalls the fun and frolic of initiation night! And frolicsome it was-that memorable Saturday evening when fiction turned fact and the story-book version of Disneys "Snow White" became a wholesome realityl Spirited freshmen enacted their roles in a performance which offers a challenge to prospective Elmites, while direction was ably undertaken and managed by officious but well-meaning seniors. Yes, this was the occasion which the graduates had anticipated all during their college years, it was the moment when we faced the almost incredible but all-Wonder- ful fact-we were Seniors at lastl A means simply the aura of prayer which permeated that autumn air. 11581 How spiritually beautiful retreat-time was and how precious were the hours of those fleeting October days! Like the traditional calm which comes after the storm was the reception of this peaceful interlude following the hustle- bustle activities of September and curriculum readjustment. 'Twas then we were made wealthy, not in the monetary sense of the word, but rather were we rich in the treasury of graces and blessings which poured forth in unlim- ited abundance. R stands out boldly, recording in red the rush and rejoicing of great days ahead! A prosperous future indeed loomed forth with such events as the Elmata Dance and "lane Eyre" holding prominent places in the college spotlight. From all corners of the campus issued hearty and well-deserved praise for a social function which has yet to be equaled and for a dramatic enterprise which added another feather to the cap of Verdeorol E reflects the elegance, elation, and renown which came to us as Seniors in donning cap and gownl Words scarcely suffice to express the honest sentiments of the graduate on that October Sunday when the symbolic garb of Senior became officially her own. As a soldier boasts of his uniform, so did we boast of our academic dress. Proudly have we worn it, and proud forever shall '45 be of this integral part of her college wardrobe. W tells of the wonderful prom which followed exams-then, too, soon was gonel Morale builders "par excellence" might well have been the title ascribed to the luniors after their very spectacular prom which transformed the col- lege into a galaxy of rainbows and has had us chasing them ever sincel E reappears in ecstasy clad evoking remembrance of tribute to Dad. As someone has so aptly expressed it, St. Patricks Day this year truly was a red-letter day in green. Fathers and daughters together participated in the mirth and happiness of one of Sodality's most outstanding and successful achievements. When March l7th drew to a close, so, too, closed one of the most cherished chapters in the history of '46 L implies the lovely spring when the Glee Club raised its voice to sing. And well was there reason for singing! lt was perfectly evident that our joyous reaction to the Easter Ball could not be contained in our hearts, and so it was rendered in song in a concert which astounded the severest music critics. L again stresses our love now and ever for dear Alma Mater which time cannot sever. There was a time when commencement for us was a dream, but now as Seniors we are awakened to its honest reality. The word which for so long was but a shadow in space is now as clear as time can tell- Our Lady of the Elms . . . we say "Parewell"l Alice Murray I 159 l CKHLZM I BE IT REMEMBERED that I, Dorothy Mary Callahan, a Senior at the College of Our Lady of the Elms, in the city of Chicopee and county of Hampden in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and memory, but knowing the uncertainty of life, do make this my LAST WILL AND TESTA- MENT, hereby revoking all former wills by me at any time heretofore made FIRST: To our most beloved Bishop and Reverend President, Thomas M, 0'Leary, D.D., we give our eternal gratitude for having enjoyed the privilege of being students at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. We are not un- mindful of the many hours of ceaseless toil and worry which our beloved Bishop spent in establishing this institution of higher learning where Gods choicest truths are unfolded and our character molded after the blessed character of the Mother of God. We hereby give to His Excellency our undying pledge of spiritual remembrance during the natural term of our life. SECOND: To our beloved Vice-President, Reverend Doctor Iohn R. Rooney, we give and bequeath the gratitude of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-six for his fatherly guidance of all of us at the College of Our Lady of the Elms, and we hope and pray that he will always experience the choicest of life's blessings. THIRD: To Reverend Mother Iohn Berchmans, S.S.l., and the Reverend Sisters of Saint Ioseph we give our heartfelt thanks for the learning, patience, and unselfish example extended to us during our four years' stay at the college. Their life has been the personification of the blessed heart of our dear Virgin Mother and they alone, of all teachers, can truly sit by the side of our Blessed Mother and truly impart her lessons. FOURTH: To our Professor of Religion, Reverend Doctor Ieremiah Sheehan, esteemed by all the students, we leave our deepest appreciation for his learning, his unfailing kindness, and his ever-willing spirit to help us out at any time during our stay here at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. We shall never forget him . . . we shall always cherish his memory. FIFTH: To our Professor of Philosophy, Reverend Doctor George Shea, we give our everlasting appreciation for the many, many hours of scholastic philosophy so patiently imparted to us. Doctor Shea is a true apostle of Saint Thomas and we can never repay him for his kindness, his learning, and his good example. SIXTH: To the Faculty of this, our college, we leave our appreciation for the countless hours they have spent with us during these past four years. Your many acts of thoughtfulness and kindness made many a dark moment take a lighter hue. The interest you showed on our behalf and the aid you extended to us on so many different occasions will always be remembered by us, the Class of '46, with grateful hearts. SEVENTH: To the Undergraduates of this college we give and bequeath all the joy and happiness that has been in our hearts and minds during our four years at O. L. E. Now we are leaving you . . . the time has gone by so quickly . . . our departure is drawing nigh. In our farewell we leave to you, the underclassmen of O. L. E., the charge to nurture the ideals set before you, to make the most of each moment of every day, for they will slide quickly by. Inculcate in your hearts the principles of Catholic womanhood and be true to Our Lady of the Elms. This is the charge we leave to you. H601 EIGHTHZ ln the presence of the members of the Senior Class l hereunto subscribe our seal in the year of Our Lord, l946. The Senior Class of O. L. E. Dorothy Mary Callahan, Class Attorney Cfdifff 08100, lnto the golden past of yesterday Have slipped the carefree days we loved so well. lt is with deep regret and heavy hearts That from our lips must fall this sad farewell. We've cherished our four years within these halls. Learning, friendship, truth we found were ours, But quickly did the days swell into years. The time proved short when filled with happy hours. Clothed in our new-found knowledge, bold we stand With hopes undaunted and with hearts so true M A challenge to a newly-conquered world. O Alma Mater, we'll keep faith with you! I N611 CLASS PROPHECY lt is a Saturday afternoon in Iune, 1956. The sky is a bright, clear blue and not a cloud is to be seen anywhere. All nature is bursting with joy as the warm rays of a golden sun beam down upon it. The air is calm and peaceful- no noise pierces the stillness. Suddenly the trees, whose leaves had not stirred all day, begin to wave back and forth in a strong wind which seems to have arisen from nowhere But, it hasn't. Here is the cause now - Kay Quinn's new ROCKET, designed by Bertha Stone, foremost designer in the world. Bertha's ideas are so far advanced, and change so often, that the older airplane companies haven't been able to keep up with her. She has had to form a company of her own. Kay, who has always been on the lookout for better and faster means of transportation bought Bert's new plane for her extensive travels between Springfield and Alabama. Kay is doing historical research work in the South, but she likes to fly to Springfield for week-ends. On this particular Saturday afternoon, Kay and Marie Senecal are flying over the Springfield area, taking in all the beauties of nature before landing at the home of Mrs. Norbert Neffinger, the former Miss Avis O'Donnell. Avis is holding a reunion of the Class of '46 today. Mike, who is chief photographer for the Springfield Union, is to take pictures of the event. She is well armed for the task with her atomic camera invented by lane Reinhard. This camera, which is worn as a ring, not only takes pictures but develops them at the same time. lane has made millions overnight with her idea. Well, the plane is now circling over the Neffinger home. Slowly it begins to glide downward, right over the mirror-surfaced swimming pool surrounded by huge maple trees, then comes to a sudden stop on the lawn in back of the rambling white house. Kay and Mike are first met by Virginia Murphy, the present Mrs. Donald Hurley. Says Iinny, "Avis is in the house taking care of her twin baby boys. Believe me, she's glad now that she majored in chem- istry. l-ler training in proportions and measurements certainly comes in handy in preparing formulas for those two. l came early to help her with the dishes for this affair." "Where's the rest of the crowd?" says Kay. "Most likely in or near the swimming pool," replies Iinny. "lt's such a hot day that everyone is seeking the coolest spot available. Betty Sullivan seems to be the center of attraction there right now. She's one of the leading reporters on the New York Times, you know, and she's got some news about quite a few other members of our class. Let's go over and join the girls." Down near the pool Betty is besieged by questions. "Whats this we hear about Eveline Breault winning the Nobel prize for literature?" asks one. "Evie wrote one of the best French novels of the year about college life," replies Betty. "I believe it was entitled 'Les Ormes Apres Dix Heures' or 'Girls, Put Out That Light'. Others who have distinguished themselves in the field of literature are Alice Murray and Claire Syner. Alice, who has been hailed as America's most prolific writer, recently published her latest collection of poems in two volumes of five hundred pages each. Claire has considerably shaken the foundation of the field of education with her amazing text on 'The Proper Method of Teaching Mathematics'. This book is dedicated to the practice- teachers of math. at the Elms. "On Broadway, Ruth Kennedy is making quite a name for herself as a portrayer of character roles. Ruth received so much practice during her four years at the Elms that producers find that she can play those parts so well that she is the highest paid stage star at present. Marita Brunton is in New York, too. She is making excellent use of her dancing and mathematical ability as assistant manager of the Rockettes. tiezi "By the way, are any of you girls going to attend Mary lane Floods concert at Carnegie Hall next week? She has just returned from a tour of South America. Helen Fitzgibbons, who speaks Spanish so fluently, went along as Mern's manager. While in Rio de Ianeiro they met Dr. Marianne Street, who has been doing bacteriological research in that region. Marianne, who likes the country down there, said that she intends to come up North for the summer and spend some time at the Fanning and Haley exclusive summer resort out on Cape Cod. Mary Lou and Tessa decided 'way back in '45 that there was no place like the beach and so they decided to make a lifetime occupation of staying there. When the weather gets cold, they go down to Florida to bask in the sunshine. What a life!" A luxurious limousine can now be seen winding up the road to the Neffinger home. Who can the occupant be? Why, it's Lois Boland, newly-appointed Secretary of the Treasury, and Margaret Swords, inventor of an automatic slide rule for physical chemistry students. Lois obtained her position because of her excellent method of taking care of the Sodality funds during 1945 and '46. Swordsy has been of invaluable assistance to Lois with this amazing slide rule which will figure out any problem in the winking of an eye. This gadget might also come in very handy to Pat Dowling, who has her share of difficul- ties in the Internal Revenue Department in Washington. Swordsy tells us that on the way up from Washington she and Lois stopped in New York to shop. Of course, they stopped in Dorothy Callahan's Depart- ment Store to buy some of the most distinguished gowns designed by Pat Bardsley and modeled by Mary Donohue. "Bards" is the leading designer of gowns in this country and Dot's store has become famous as the source of Bardsley's originals. Dottie Callahan saw Dorothy Kelly just the other day Kell was shopping for her trousseau. It seems that life is going to be "Gay"-er for her quite soon. "Speaking of weddings, Mr. and Mrs. George Bissonnette will be celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary soon," says Esther Dillon. "It seerns that Ann is quite busy redecorating her home and trying to keep George, jr., under control. just the other day she had to pay a visit to the eminent child psy- chologist, Patricia Brophy, to find out what could be done about juniors temper. Pat, who has a special knack for handling children, solved the diffi- culty quite well, and Ann's worries are now over." "What are you doing now, Esther?" asks Avis. "Oh, I am chief buyer for Annette Stanton's chain of restaurants. I travel all over in search of food. Last week I even had to go to Ashton, R. I., to get chickens at Claire Geddes' poultry farm. She has an enormous thriving business. Her interest in chickens started with that poor little chick that was hatched at the Elms on March 7, l946." And so we find all the members of '46 well off on the road of life-all happy in their particular field of activity. Still they like to look back on college days and recall fond memories. It is their sincere wish that succeeding classes may follow in their footsteps and attain as much success, ever keeping in mind the words of our Alma Mater song: "Be our light, our guide, our friend always. Lead us on our path each day. Dear C. O. L. E., ever our pride be, To your name we'll bring fame. On life's way, your lessons we'll defend. On your strength we'll e'er depend And raise your emblem, its standard hold, For we love it, revere it, our Green and Gold." Leona Lachat And as for our prophet, we are wondering just how she will use this data in her classes of experimental pedagogy at her Alma Mater. jisaj eniozf ga!

The strains of "Praise to Thee, O Lord" are fading away and our Baccalaureate Sunday is coming to a close. We leave the college with our degrees commending us for four years' work. The memories of our years here, the benefits reaped from the study of God and man, and our ability to trust all things in God is strong armament for our years along life's rough way.
