The benediction of day-spring, the re- freshing lavers of dawn - prophetic, ex- hilarating in their newness-the relief of star-mist against the murk of night, the shifting sun in autumn elms, the gilded halo of a waxen taper flickering in some forgot- ten niche .... Can We not say that light- light in its dazzling intensity, in its pale shimmering, in its molten glow-brings a solace to the human heart that no other element can afford? Learned minds are pierced with it, joys make one light-hearted, truth and beauty bathe in its unstained rays, and love, laughter, and life are inter- woven by its bonds. Our college days have been signally bright, shining tokens of exuberance unshadowed. Yet, these are but refractions imperfect, unstable, dulled to meet man's clay-limned limita- tions, reflections frail of I-lim who is the Illu- minating Source. But often have we crept near to that Source, for here on our campus, by a dim altar-side, a feeble scarlet flame pointed out to us the Way to the Light of the World. l2l J uv 1 " A 5. ,wa ' 4- r,.w" fx?

The steep course of our quest, rough and forbidding at the outset, has grown increasingly brighter and clearer as we have progressed, sig- nifying the matchless aid and in- spiration gained frorn teachers and superiors who once trod the same highway. We acknowledge with grateful hearts the brilliant benefits of their disciplined minds, ever ready to impart to others the fruits of their reaping, the lustre of their comprehensive education.

They have chosen the guiet ways, the hidden, they have elected the service and sacritice solicited by their thorn-crowned Spouse, they have sought the l-louse ot the Lord. Yet, in this detachment from the world these daughters ot loseph necessarily exert a moving influence upon it by instilling into impres- sionable souls the shining virtues ot modesty and true humility, Con- secrated as they are to the promulgation of Gods truth, they devote every measure of time and talent to the molding of young minds in Catholic principles. ln every field ot knowledge, they interpret tor us lucidly and simply the mystic mastery of the Divine Intellect and Light. The dignity ot their vocation and their innate strength ot grace pervade- with peace the atmosphere of learning.

Their ju- dicious instruction enlightened us through the curious Ways of childhood, on through the complexities of adolescence to the breathless expectancy of womanhood, and the foundations of our religious and moral convic- tions find their source in the essential solicitude deep planted in parental hearts. By their patient sacrifices-bitter, more exacting than will ever be known-they have afforded us manifold privileges, and set us on the path of salvation. We can only hope to fulfill their trust in us, to carry out to the best of our ability the fondest dreams of those dear ones who have made our homes and hearths Warm replicas of love-filled Nazareth. t19l enlor Gfass 0 1947 'aqui' 15-0-wevn.

How can we mingle all the light and flame we'Ue known And center it in one small, common scope Symbolic of the precious days we named our own? Let us recall the time with candles four, Each year beginning by a timid spark. It was with hesitation lit, and then Progressed in strength, dispelling doubtful dark. And, as associations came more dear, The flame waxed brighter, shedding soothing light On labored studies, hours of jollity and mirth, On prayerful moments both by day and night. The halcyon times of carefree ways were oursee Untroubled, radiantly seething to the brim Of youth and fullnessg the fire soared high Before it waned at last and fliclqered dim. Four candles did we thus reverently burn,- Four brief, bright years, our signal lamps in life That will sustain us though our way be long Or wearisome with galling pain and strife. And now is our last taper gleaming lowg The echoes of our college joys grow far and soft- But waitl A last gold spark is blazing to ignite The Torch of Truth which we must bear aloft. i221 "er t Theresa Af. Allen, BOS, Chicopee HE is delicate as an ivory madonna with blue-black hair, lithe as a swaying reed, airy as an eltl Lest her shy, demure manner deceive you, please note those laughing eyes testifying to the sparkle that lies beneath. Her extreme nonchalance is nurtured by the tact that she lives but a few steps from school and so may stroll into class just before the last bell-this to the envy of "long-distance day-hops". Yet, despite her easy-going nature, she really gets things accomplished. Under her capable guidance and leadership the Mission Committee has progressed admirably both materially and spir- itually in its participation in the propagation ot the Faith. Test tubes and microscopes have also captured Theresa's interest, and a career as laboratory technician seems most inviting right now. Well, we shall seel l23l 57714 Theresa Mi. Amiiotf, AOB, North Oxford HERESA has been the heart ot '47fin every sense ot the word Through these tour years she has been the initiating and sustaining spark which made the class and club activities that we so eagerly planned come true. Her skilled artistic pen has produced interpretative ink-sketches, delighting prose and delicate verse to grace the pages oi our treasure, Tmmmilnie. Her successful year as editor gives tribute to the untiring Zeal and patient crafts- manship which are hers She tilled our days with music, charming and en- trancing all with the myriad patterns ot melody which her lingers so surely wovei Because ot her competent direction ot our entries in the one-act-play competitions, '47 has been able, more than once, to shout with ringing joy, 'The Verdeoro Cup it's ours, and 'Terrie' saw us throught" Yes, she has ever given generously of time and talent in her quiet, unassuming way. To her go our heartfelt thanks tor all the success and happiness that she has brought to us at O.LiE.l l24l i i ,Tu Mary C. Boyle, AOB, Framingham ARYS exuberance and etlervescent wit enlighten any gathering, The many tacets ot her character shine forth in her activities as the bustling Business Manager ot the Elmatu, as the talented actress in "Harriet", l'Pride and Prejudice", 'lThe Mastertul Monk", and as the president ot "La Corte Castellanau. ln winter sports, Mary stars on the basketball court as a torward with an eagle eye for the basket, Summertime tinds her swimmingeat Onset, ot course, Any question posed at Mary will always receive a snappy retort drawn from her wealth ot humor. Her hilarious experiences, such as the measles" Cremember when?J result in an uproar in the dorm. Mary is the pride and joy of undergraduates as well as seniors, and with her dynamic personality and untailing good nature has been essential in making college days the bright ones that we know and treasure. t25l 5 e il i Marion lE. Burnett, A.lB,. Springfield VERY class project has received the wholehearted cooperation and ardent support of Marion, one of the most dependable members of the Class of '47, For the past four years she has held office in the Debating Club, and has contributed in every way to the success of its activities, No tea or other social function of that society was complete without the appearance of her tempting cakes and crisp cookies. ln addition to her skillful juggling of recipes, Marion also turns out awesome performances in the mathematics line. Few of us would attempt to major in so formidable a subject! Besides dancing, of which she is avowedly a graceful exponent, she has a decided, Wholesome enthusiasm for basketball, and her knack for tricky footwork has made her an essential part of the class team. Energetic, earnest, she is vital to any group, and with her confidence and independent air, often provides a needed spark of assurance. l26l 'KJ' Q. H Anne T, Caunity, lB.S. Chicopee O VERY often this past year she has begun "the meeting with a prayer." Who? None other than our very efficient Sodality Prefect, of course, Be- sides having this full-time duty, she is one of the varsity debaters fwith several victories to her creditl, a loyal supporter of the second soprano section in the Glee Club, and the star of the chemistry class. Any spare moments at her disposal are devoted to playing the organ, in the musical field alone we predict for her an interesting future. Nature has woven poetry in her person --a blonde daintiness just made for dark grey eyes, turned-up nose and enchanting smile. l-ler childlike charm has captivating power, and her sweet sincerity endears her to one and all. Anne, we'll always remember these four years we've enjoyed more . . . because of you. l27l Therese P, Cartier, A,lB, Willimansett OOKING for a needed helping hand? Why, be assured that the hoped- for cooperation will be found in this loyal booster of all her Alma Mater's activities-scholastic and social alike. Many are those who have admired her sincerity, her dependability, her unwavering firmness in following out a chosen idea. l-fer marked facility for modern languages showed forth in her ability as a linguist, and the clear, precise pronunciation of foreign phrases made her recitations a delight to hear. She took an enthusiastic interest in her practice teaching, and we are certain that "her pupils" benefited greatly from the experience, Her smiling acquiescence to every appeal has stamped her as a staunch Elmite, and we feel that the same charming trait will always make her "so very nice to know." f28l . it Muriel Q. Desaurels, AJBE. Adams CC O DIVINELY tall, so very fair ,.., " How Well these words apply to modest "Mus," l-ler unobtrusive charm and genuine naivete make her outstanding in refinement, and her love of culture is evident in her admiration of the classics, and her quiet, efficient Way of doing things. Latin and French classes constitute for her hours of intellectual enjoyment. She is an integral part of any Glee Club chorus, and her innate French flair for the artistic makes her invaluable on decoration committees. Sincere, generous and con- scientious as she is, Muriel has the acknowledged power of warming hearts with a single smile. Her quaint mannerisms and soft spoken dignity make her all the more endearing. Association With this classmate has been our constant pleasure, and we honestly hope "all your dreams may come true, chere mademoisellef' t29l , ff-nv 3 Elizabeth Mc. Dolan, AJB. Peabody ETTY .... The dance in her eye, the sprinkle of laughter in her heart, the clear ring of her voice all come to mind when We think of her carefree, life-loving ways. Nothing ever bothers her for long, worry seems alien to her nature. Concerning those frequent trips to Boston and Worcester, she often found difficulty in trying to decide which was "on schedule." A par- ticular propensity lor poetry-especially that of Tennyson and Browning- marks her enthusiasm for English courses. Ever willing to render a song, she is numbered as an active member of the famed "Swan Club" which boasts an enrollment of three "melody makers." During her years with us, Betty has been a most gracious hostess, making "open house" a daily event in her room. Things can never be dull or prosaic when Betty beams in. l3Ul 1 'tip 'Q f T , ii ' Claire L. Donlin, BSI. Springfield OLORED paper, paint pots, glue, scissors, fashion magazines .... Who spends hours with these, turning out those clever and original posters for the bulletin board? Why, Clare, of course, capable editor of the "Campus Communique." Her energies are not confined to that quarter alone, however, she is always busy conducting philosophical discussions of world affairs at Social Action meetings, singing with the Glee Club, debating, or balancing Science Club books s- not to mention working on complicated physical chem. experiments, and untangling calculations for them. Pert and vivacious, she has a fetching smile and dimples to match, sparkling green eyes, and chestnut hair often swept to the top of her head. ln fact, she's noted for her constant change of coiffures, and those long, carefully polished fingernails. Nice in every way, that's our "Susie," l31l M I E to , wg". , 5 f , Rosemary CCC. Donovan, AJBC. Floral Park, L. l, HEN Rosemary came to us by way of Brentwood, 0. L. E., and particu- larly the class of '47, gained a firm friend, a good student and a staunch supporter. Ro has played an influential part in our manifold activities, and has taken a particular interest in dramatics. Her interpretation of the gushing socialite, Mrs. Sands-Woodford, in "The Masterful Monk" clearly proved her theatrical ability. Although not a formal member of the debating team, she was always ready to lend her viewpoint to motivate a vital discussion, Ro has divided her weekends quite fairly between Floral Park and Providence, and, judging from her colorful accounts, we know how much she enjoyed them. We will miss her easy-going, pleasant way, but we know that through it she will acquire many new friends. We, her old friends, wish her the best, always. I32l Z if alia new ' it Janne Af. Durham, AJR. Agawam ANIE serves the seniors as a model for the old, but true statement that "a friend in need is a friend indeed." For who can match our Hlittle girl" in geniality, cordiality or sincerity? Her even disposition and conviviality impress her associates, and are examples worthy of imitation. Ever willing to sing, she keeps audiences in incessant peals of laughter with her melodious voice-exhibit A, the December ninth entertainment. The argyles that her knitting needles produce testify not only to her skill, but also to her patience. Despite her amazing ability in math, and her capture of the science award in chemistry, Durk's "ether experiment" achieved for her the greatest distinc- tion. Though she finds it extremely hard to stand on her two feet, she acts as an excellent guard on the basketball court and baseball season finds her captaining the team. A regular good sport is lane. l33l f Gill J' . l Susan E. Fitzgerald, lBi.Si North Adams UE, by her ever-faithful boosting of the Crusaders, is now affectionately known as the "l-loiah Girl." Surely we can guess the meaning behind those dreamy eyes .... To her the Science Club points with pride, for she has guided its projects with unflagging interest during the past months. She labors with a will, indeed, she spent many a weary hour searching for a light -for the dark room. Her becoming Dutch-boy clip is a source of general fascination, and the bewitching smile and expressive eyes displayed beneath it exert a piguant appeal. ln this classmate we discover the whimsical blend- ing of solid scientific knowledge and feminine fancy, genial Irish wit and smooth sophistication. Though she may not tower in stature over all, she has a most commanding way-A-self-sufficient, confident, dependable. Sweet Sue, its youl l34l 5 W 'Nffgv ? Q. Rosemary AC.

Her dark brown eyes mirror mutable expressions, exhibit- ing a vital interest in everything at hand. She possesses a deep fund of historical knowledge, and through constant perusal of magazines and peri- odicals can converse intelligently in every phase of past and current events. Always ready to put forth and defend a logical argument, she has formed an essential part of animated l. R. C. discussions. As captain of the basketball team for the four years, Margie has incorporated some of the unique Whitins- ville High techniques into the game. Few players, by using only one hand, can put the ball through the hoop quite as neatly as she. Her deftness is also manifest in the clicking of her knitting needles, and the resulting products of her "spare time" have been most creditable. Versatile is the word for her! l36l EW I Phyllis Mi, Honra, Aillli. Chicopee O THE Class of '47, Phyllis and personality go hand in hand, for we have always found the two together. Her cheery chuckle and hearty "hello" for everyone, her gracious response to every demand for a song-the rhythmic highlight of many an occasion here at OLE.-will loe long remembered. lrish melodies acquired a particularly lively lilt in her tuneful treatments. Sleigh bells and Santa Claus will always bring with them the spirited, sparkling picture of "Phyl" in colorful command of the festivities of the Christmas party. Our Elmata dance holds a vivid place in our memory, thanks to the novel decorations which she planned and executed with such ready enthusiasm. And climaxing these, the recollection of her repeated top-notch performances Hon stage" as one of Verdeoro's leading character actresses will make remem- hering worthwhile. l-lappy and helpful, she is-our 'lPhyl." l37l 'Qu i , f t y lam, Patricia MQ Johnson, BGS. Lenox FTEN in O'Leary have you heard the gay, infectious laughter of this petite "five-foot-two, eyes of blue" Elmite, and caught a glimpse of her as the picture-book princess of prom nights. If ever you saw the Lenten tableaux, you hold an unforgettable image of her as the central figure in the famous Hoffman painting of the Child in the Temple. She has been mistress of musical amusement for the Senior Dormg her l'cube," piled high with records, seemed a veritable music box, the well-spring of our melody-making. Variable as a New England spring are her mercurial moods-a proper comparison, too, for she will very proudly tell one and all, "l'm from Lenox-in the Berkshireslu By all these do you know her, but you will best remember her for the captivat- ing quality of warm, true friendship-so prominently Patsys f38l QQ' Anne Marie King, AJR..

Even when a freshman, she focused her plans on languages and has been living and thinking le frangais and el espanol so completely that now she is fearful for her E l' h ' ' ' ng is grammar. Alert and adept as a linguist, she has often surprised visiting French lecturers with her ease and eloquence in the foreign tongue Study, however, doesn't absorb all of her time, she can always find a spare moment for a congenial coke with the "crowd" He plified on the unforgettable night of our first minstrel show, when we all "blacked up" and she starred as the able and charming Mistress of Cere- monies.

King, AJBQ Pittsfield AROIQS quicksilver wit and rollicking humor have added many a colorful incident to what we so fondly designate as "dorm life," Many of those snappy, original class songs owe their existence to her spontaneous rhyming, and a history of our dramatic productions wouldnt be complete without an account of her frequent, unique, gentlemanly interpretations, ln addition to treading the boards, she was the able manager of the monetary department of the Dramatic and French Clubs. After a summer at Laval University, she now chatters le frangazs quite fluently-gestures and all-with just the proper accent. This is much to our consternation, who are not so well versed-mais mul A competent entertainer, her bubbling laughter livens any party, and has often made those "after lights" affairs just a bit more daring, ct bit more dear. l 40 l g ,ff ,J lk 5 .W Alice llfi. Laippin, Aillgl. Holyoke OLLY'S poise and gentle manner reserve a special place for her in senior society. Wherever she may be, her demureness and cheerful smile lend sunshine. Call on her freely and with assurance for any task which must be accomplished with speed and finesse. Besides her attachment for good books, chic fashions and smart handbags, Alice adores New York City with its pleasant, intriguing memories. Our petite blonde confesses a fondness for week-end waltzing, too. Promptly at noon, this composed senior joins the cafeteria coterie, and the mellow tones of her modulated voice attract atten- tion in any conversation lnnumerable friends have been charmed by her tact, true sincerity and the merry twinkle in those intensely blue eyes. ln a quiet, unassuming way, Lolly exemplifies the Elms and its ideals, l4ll it Barbara Gt. Larkin, AJR. Springfield ERE is Barbara-she of the cheerful greeting, she of the sympathetic glance, the understanding heart. Her life is attuned to music. lt forms the predominating note in her work and play, her pastime and pleasure. Her skillful fingers, twinkling or tarrying over the keyboard, enchant her im- promptu audiences as she offers them variations from Bach and Beethoven to boogie-woogie. A few dryly humorous remarks thrown in here and there reveal her quiet love of fun. Always a thoroughly good sport, she is ready to join in every frolic.

Very noted were her pseudo-philosophic solutions to her friends' woes which gained for her the position of the "DD of '1l7." Her one great weakness was revealed in her fervor for the symphony, of which she has a wide knowledge and deep appreciation.

She shows puckish delight in proposing arguments, and maintains a brave stand in the resulting tide of controversy. A staunch defender of that lovely village in the Berkshires, "Bulo" proves a fervent devotee of the musical functions at Tanglewood. She is enthralled by good music and, in contrast to its soothing influences, professes a decided liking for mystery thrillers.

Yet, she was not all frivolity, Hlournalistic loan" and "Elmscript" were practically synonomous. The paper, which orig- inated in 1946, has become, through her capable editorship, zeal and ingenu- ity, an effective medium for propagating campus news and school spirit, By the persevering effort of loan, obstacles were surmounted, and the Elms girls' dream of a school paper at last became a reality. I-fer native curiosity and 'fnose for news" ought to gain success for her in the field of her choice, and her hearty laughter and expressive brown eyes are certainly valuable assets.

Classical music, poetry and fiction also occupy a very special place on her list of interests. Her flair for dramatics is evinced by the numerous male roles which she has portrayed so effectively.

Although lengthy Spanish translations, copious assignments in English drama and lesson plans for her high school classes kept her occupied, she still found time to continue her lively interest in both classical and popular music4she particularly enjoyed Concerts of the Spring- field Symphony-and in the very latest of fashion creations. Tall, slim, with sparkling brown eyes, auburn locks and a light dusting of freckles, she could appear sophisticated in black, or be the casual type in sweater and skirt as the occasion demanded. Always active, her vacations were devoted to excursions to the shore or to New York to view the newest plays.

Betty is indeed a study in active expression, with brown eyes twinkling and hands making graphic even the most abstruse theorems of Aquinas. ln regard to subjects scientific, her knowledge from liters to litmus paper, from beakers to Bunsen burners we find most imposing.

Sincerity shines from steady eyes, and the genuine smile lighting her whole countenance forms one of her most charming and, at the same time, comforting of attributes. From admiring classmates there has sprung perpetual astonishment, How did she ever manage to expound syllogisms so smoothly and with so little effort, exploring the intricacies of advanced psychology with apparent ease? And how could she invariably have the correct response for every situation? A logical and orderly mind is the inevitable answer, as you see.

H341 Q5 C asses The glinting facets of college life shimmer in purest sparks through the medium of the individual classes. A definite characteristic, a typical personality dominating each group, converge their varied rays into one shining center of comradeship and cooperanon, Among the undergraduates, the verdancy of the freshmen takes but little time to mellow, and their ree freshing naivete colors their every action with a candid charm. Gay young sophomores exert a new con- fidence in their seasoned status as Elms students, and begin to appre- ciate more fully the values of the college ideals, while the rollicking merriment of lolly luniors testifies that, decidedly "this is the best year." Orderly vigor of minds intent upon education, and willingness of groups to labor for the achievement of suc- cess signify the ardent school spirit abounding in classmates close bound by love and loyalty for their Alma Mater. i AQ LL4fll.O4fS R lrlonnigcrn, M, Finn, A Hecrphy, M Diggins, M Hurley, R Dolton, K Courtney, P Fehily, M.

However, clouds rolled back and blue skies forecast bright days here at OLE. The same radiating glow filled the heart of each "frosh" as she attended the Mass of the Holy Ghost. Our pressure areas-high to low-were signified by the various classes. Sept. 28-Elms Night-Threatening: Oct. lust the word for those ominous seniors who haunted the freshmen for a week. Decked out in kerchiefs, aprons and mittens we bowed to their bidding, and on that fatal, stormy night faced the senior court under charge of insubordination and rank treason. Yet, Elms Night brought us our junior sisters, who made the horizon a bit brighter. l7-Retreat-Clear and calm: The lucid sermons of Father Flanagan brought to us inspiring ideals, immeasurable benefits and graces. Not only was retreat mentally re- freshing, but we found it also spiritually invigorating. Oct. 28-Cap and Gown Sundaydlntermittent to clearing: Reflecting the mutable emotions of the seniors, we "frosh" felt both proud and sad for the Class of '47, proud, because we sensed the efforts they had exerted to attain this long-awaited goal, and yet sad, for they would soon be leaving OLE. The impressive ceremonies at chapel provided a bright ending to a treasured day. Oct. 31-Halloween-Fair: The lasses of '49 paraded their talent before all by the light of a harvest moon. The Gay Nineties' costumes and barber-shop quartet were unfor- gettable. And "She Was Only a Bird" was a heart-rending ballad! After the show we went to the gym for cider and doughnuts and then home under the stars with traditional Elms songs echoing in our ears. Nov. 3-lunior Tea-Pleasant: The delightful tea given at the Highland Hotel by our junior sisters pro- vided enough cheer to carry us through the dire exam days looming just ahead. Nov. 19-Ouarterly Exams-Stormy: Dark days came upon usl Blue daysl Yes, blue books shadowed all, and the atmosphere was heavy, indeed, as we crammed. However, judging from the geniality and affability of the upperclassmen here at O.L.E. we predict bright and sunny days ahead for the Class of 1950. l98l res man irectory ALBANO, BARBARA I DeCICCO, CAROL I.

Through the capable direction of Anne Canty, the various branches of the society have expanded in spiritual and cultural influence, reaching every Sodalist by their wide range of appeal. An instance is the new interest added to meetings of the Study Club. Father Pierce, Sodality moderator, has lectured on the liturgy of the Church, and under his guidance members have studied the matter diligently, eagerly, discussing it from varied angles. As a result, a vital appreciation for this priceless Catholic heritage has been gained, an accomplishment of which the Study Club may well be proud. ' A daily concourse could be seen gathered in the corridor, heads bobbing and tongues animated, commenting favorably on the unique features of a recent poster. Every other day the bulletin board burst forth with new life and color, announcing in the most attractive and original manner the latest Sodality news. The willing spirit and artistic skill of the Eucharistic Corn- mittee made this year's Sodality bulletin a record one. Q Through the generous planning of the Mission group, the "Little Sisters" at Mount St. Vincent were treated to a Christmas surprise. Laden with dolls, games, clothing and candy, Sodalists trooped to lngleside for the important event-one, indeed, that proved both enjoyable and profitable, since so many small hearts were made happy. Again, by the untiring efforts of this com- mittee, whole-hearted support characterized the Propagation of the Faith Drive, and that for used clothing. Baskets, distributed to needy families during the holiday season, also showed the charitable scope of genuine Catholic Action. Combining the spiritual and cultural aspects, the Literary Club has spon- sored many an entertaining and valuable evening of rousing discussion in regard to latest books. ln the consideration of current literature, the tenets contained in Father Gardiner's guide to the intelligent appraisal of reading matter have been faithfully observed. Through the stimuli of coffee hours and round-table chats, a more vivid view of the field of Catholic journalism has been afforded. May the interest grow more keen. Social functions have been signal through the past months. The Christmas party typified the spirit of the time by uniting reverence and mirth. Too, the gay booths of the annual bazaar attracted merry Elmites, and the dreamy Easter Ball beneath a canopy of apple blossoms proved a very special affair. And yet, these are just a few of the many examples of Sodality enterprise. Read on .... H031 EUCHARISTIC COMMITTEE E. Mayninan, M Meehan, A. MacDonneII, S. Eisenmann, M.

In the presence of angels, Saints and all the court of Heaven, these candidates pronounced the simple, awesome words of their consecration to the devoted serving ot the Holy Mother ot God, and in turn obtained the silver medals, bright emblems at this blessed obligation Every Sodalist, a daughter ot Mary in a truly special sense, must have renewed spontaneously in her heart at that moment the humble vow of her own warm loyalty. The Rev. Thomas S. I-Ianrahan, in his address to those received, exhorted them to follow as their model Mary, "The Mother ot fair love, and of fear, and ot knowledge, and of holy hope."

During the year the club featured lively discussions on points ot the most current importance, Several of the meetings were dedicated to the sociological question, "Resolved: That labor should be given a direct share in the management of industry," which was treated from a religious as well as secular viewpoint. According to the usual procedure, two or more speakers argued pro and con, and the ensuing con- troversy Was given over to the tloor where it underwent animated analysis. Other problems tor debate were the proposal of socialized medicine, the treatment of the Negro, and the Catholic position in regard to anthropologic evolution, all of which proved ot utmost interest.

Beyond the benefits it affords, there is added significance in the presence of a dramatic society on the campus of a Catholic College.

The year 1946-1947 brought with it a full roster. One evening each month was set aside for house debates which were followed by varied forms of activity from the floor. As always, the debates on the inter-collegiate schedule drew the campus spotlight, and the resumption of the Inter-Class Debate series was hailed with marked enthusiasm.

Such timely topics as radioactivity, electronics, and penicillin are discussed thoroughly and penetratingly, rousing a healthy curiosity concerning the marvelous complexities of the world in which we live. A "sparkling" enterprise of the alert club was initiated successfully this year in the pulolishing of "Prisms," an informative and entertaining paper offering scientific articles and the popular column, "Katy List," describing humorous or unusual happenings in the labs. New photographic equipment has loeen purchased, affording enthusiastic .students the opportunity to develop and enlarge their own snapshots in the dark room. A widespread interest in trick poses and photographic experi- ments has developed as a consequence.

First on the schedule appeared the annual Christmas program, featuring the ever-loved melodies reminiscent of the angelic choirs on that Night of lll9l the Nativity. The chorus, singing from the balcony, created the illusion of heavenly harmonies as the simple, colorful Christmas pageant unfolded before the reverent spectators in the Rotunda below, After the holiday season had passed, sparkling plans were in order for a spring concert to be given in conjunction with the group from Holy Cross College. Extensive and intensive rehearsals immediately began in order to give the required polish to the selections-the gay The Years at the Spring, the haunting Snow and I Heard a Forest Praying, and the always popular Serenade from the "Student Prince," the joint numbers given with the Crusader chorus, O Sacrum Convivmrn and the powerful The Omnipotence, and, a cappella, the poignant cry of Kodaly's Ave Maria. in lust a tantalizing bit of the program was offered on the radio prior to the concert, affording many members the thrill of employing a new medium for their talent, The club is not only essential as a suitable means of vocal expression, but is also beneficial in that it makes college days brighter days, putting, as it does, a song in our hearts.

Through the regular passage of days, through the ordered routine of schoolwork and play, there came an occasional rift in the monotone, al- lowing for the passage of an espe- cially bright shaft of new color and change. Lectures - religious and literary-emusic, drama and moments of special significance find a promi- nent place in the senior scrapbook as a result. e nnuaf Retreat Retreat . . . the haven of quiet contem- plation and repose, the time of soul- searching thought, the inner anchorhold of tranquillity .... It was with heartfelt gratitude that, in the midst of October, we students put aside all cares and distracting associa- tions, and for three days walked with God alone. Indeed, it is this absolute isolation of the individual with her Divine Master that Rev. lohn P. Flanagan, S. I., advo- cated so strenuously in his vivid confer- ences. By this method it is impossible to crowd out the supernatural with the nat- ural, the profound with the profane, as is the common tendency in the modern world today. To settle the equilibrium of our existence, to balance the weights of our daily deeds, to deserve more fully the destiny awaiting us, we realize deeply the impelling need for close personal con- tact with Cfod. Alone, in the silence of our souls, we hear the whisper of His voice. Apart, far from the rush and strain of business, the complex affairs of men, we discover peace in the inner sanctuaries of our being. Father Flanagan emphasized the basic beauty to be had in our engrossing quest for God in solitude. True beauty is found in the blending in unity of things that are various, thus, by the commingling and coordination of work, recreation, love and religion, our lives should be bound into such a unity, such a oneness, the happy harmony of which is apparent to Heaven. The pattern ot our days, 'carefully following the design of the Creator, can be unconscious poetry, for "there is a bit of the star, the rose, the thrush in every one of us." We must, in addition to directing all our faculties and ambitions toward the fulfillment of the Divine Will, recognize our utter dependence which is, after all, a blessed reliance. Through the realization that God alone takes a personal interest in each one of us, cherishing each soul as a rare and singular gem, we recognize our insignificance, our feebleness as compared with His puissant majesty. There is, in the present world condition, the necessity for vigorously oppos- ing and crushing the subtle attacks on the very foundations of Catholicism. Yet, we cannot fight for what we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know. Here, in the lessons of our retreat, lies the crux of the answer: the searching of the soul for God alone, that it may know Him more intimately, the increasing of our familiarity with His benevolence, that we may love Him more ardently. With this accomplished, we shall find ourselves strengthened by grace to contend on the side of Christ, and our lonely paths will be bright- ened by light, which is the shadow of Cfod. ll3Ol Clp Clfl OWN ln the last blue and gold days of October, anticipation of Cap and Gown Sunday waxes bright. The usual eager expectation was heightened even more this year by the institution of a new investiture ceremony which the class of '47 hopes will become traditional. Following the celebration of the Mass of Christ the King, Rev. leremiah Sheehan presented to each neophyte the official insignia of seniority, the long-awaited cap and gown. Sophomore sisters performed the actual investing, and underclassmen formed a guard of honor to O'l.eary l-lall where a special senior breakfast was in order. The ensemble of the hour was, notably, mortar board and crisp-collared gown, and compliments and congratulations predominated as parents and friends arrived for the afternoons festivities. With shafts of autumn sunlight mellowing the flower-filled chapel, the solemn procession made its way down the central aisle as strains of the stirring jubilare lifted to the vaulted ceiling. loy was overwhelming in forty-six expectant hearts, Rev. lohn C. Proctor, S. I., addressed the new-fledged seniors with words of hope and felicitation, and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament brought the ceremony to a fitting close. A reception for the seniors and their parents was held in the gym, and later in the evening the class congregated at dinner, the final celebration of the first momentous occasion in the life of a senior. Hill! I H fl3ll uest cgpea ers Miss Mary' Louise Hickey, talented Solo dramatist, charmed us completely with her brilliant performance of "Life With Father." The sparkling comedy was given even livelier treatment by this vivacious lady, so versatile in portraying widely divergent characters. Captivating is the word for her. Cferminating from the seeds sown in the literary discussion of Rev. Harold C. Gardiner, S. j., came shoots of clearer understanding, keener discrimination and more discerning judgment in regard to best sellers, We realized from his vital remarks that truly each reader must be her own Index as she reads, penetrating the surface to find the core of truth, the suggestion of beauty. Elmites greatly appreciated Mrs, Katha rme Burrtmx lecture on Catholic heritage. Combining factual truth with a delightful 5 Y sense of humor, she provided a challenge W' for astimng Catholic auricrs oy means of inspiration through biograpleiy, her faf vorite mode of writing. Ll32l usica omen ts 'S J "Let us adore Him."eYon Warm, colorful and comforting, the intimate drama of the Nativity moved us with its ageless enchantment, while on the air, spicy with evergreens, rang out the glorious harmonies of the Christmas chorus. The soft cadences of Gesu Bambino, rising to a thrilling Crescendo, the stirring exhortation, Shepherds, Awake, the pulsing mystery in the Carol of the Drifting Snow, the breath-taking Magrtfjicat aided immeasurably in making us realize the glory of the Gift of God. "Bring ti torch, jetmette, Isabella, Bring 41 torch on this mght of joy. . . :X :k rf: :3: :5: To continue in an ethereal vein, the excellent program offered by the Orpheus Harp Trio in a midwinter musicale sent our spirits soaring to the skies, The skillful fingering of the golden strings, and the sparkling droplets of music made us veritably tingle. Particularly fine were Rtzmbow Music from Das Rhemgold, the Arabian Gypsy Ftmttzsy and the Gaelic Carol, though snatches of the various selections thrummed in fading echo through our minds for days after. Ll33l ifwltlz ffearts clung an ay The blithe spirit of the Class of '47 manifested itself for four years, but during' these past months of work and play it was interesting to note that the merry manner remained undaunted. ln the choice of their class play the senior thespians upheld the advantages of presenting the lively escapades of that incomparable pair of Skinner and Kimbrough. lt offered a suitable medium, indeed, for the sparkling talents of the seniors, and helped lighten other hearts, too. Of course, the seniors had to end their last year on a gay note, since they began it with such merriment during the week of Freshman Initiation. Despite the troubles and trials imposed upon them, the neophytes gave every indica- tion of future gaiety and good sportsmanship, every assurance that they will follow in the footsteps of their loyal senior sisters. ALLAHl I l34 l Com ence ent The spotlight is focused strongly on the seniors as the momentous week of Commencement dawns, with the honors and events attendant upon it, During all our days at the college we have dreamed of this time, thought of it with anticipation at first, later with some trepidation, and finally, when it was about to be realized, with genuine regret. We know that it is now Uwe finish, to begin." For us, this special week cele- brates the recognition of work well done, it stresses the significance of seniority by the several manifesta- tions of honor, and binds, with a twining of memorable activities, all our fondest recollections, solemn or QUY- We are the women of the hour, we are eager and ready to go forth arrayed in the glory of Catholic principles, we are wistful at the thought of severing ties with what we hold most dear-our teachers, our friends, our favorite campus nooks. For it will never be guite the same to us again. Nor shall we be the same, for, strengthened by the inspired training and noble ideals of our Alma Mater, we stand proud, happy, militant to meet and defeat the challenge of the waiting world, CLASS CLASS CLASS CLASS CLASS CLASS CLASS MARSHAL ORATOR .

The seniors blend smiles with a few tears as, flanked by juniors bearing the graceful loops of the daisy chain and escorted by the underclassmen, they proceed to a campus spot designated as the site for the traditional tree planting and oration. ln Veritas Auditorium, the class day program is then presented, bringing forth the cherished memories of four years' comradeship, the fanciful prophe- cies for the future, the echoing strains of the class song. On that night the seniors assemble at their class banquet, the last formal get-together before graduation day. 'L 'io mm. 3 W ll36l Us yield the Qoug 5 - .J- The planting of a tree at the close of our college years is both customary and appropriate. lt is customary as a living symbol, a verdant token of regard for our Alma Mater, and it is appropriate in its analogy that, as this young sapling will grow to lofty stature, so will the roots of Catholic culture, nurtured so lovingly by our professors, branch forth in vital, increasing strength through the passing of time. For we appreciate keenly the acknowledged excellence of the education that has been offered to us here. We are convinced that its quality finds little equal and we turn to our alumnae as proof of our credence, It is inevitable that, through association with them, we should feel the gentle, yet insistent influence of those who have become outstanding in the world by rejecting the world, sacrificing all for the serving of God and man. This that we have seen and felt is service in its truest sense, and we can, in the future, but live by its sublime motives-utter trust in God, and the directing of all to Him as the Supreme End. This is, we firmly believe, the greatest lesson we have learned, and now our pliant ideals and ambitions, trained by such guidance, will reach toward the goal in the skies. We plant this tree as a symbol and a concrete sign of hope that we may present the only reward we may giveethe fruit it will bear in our lives. fl37l Glass TM!! l, Phyllis Marion Hoar, in the name of the Senior Class of the College of Our Lady of the Elms, in the year of Our Lord l947, do hereby make my last will and testament, hereby revoking all former wills by me at any time here- tofore made Section leArticle l To our President and beloved Bishop, Thomas M. O'Leary, we leave our eternal gratitude for the establishment of this institution of higher learning where we have had the privilege of being students for the past four years. We also thank him for his endless toil in aiding us along the way toward becoming better women and more devoted children of God. We shall always remember our most Reverend Bishop in our prayers and thoughts during our years to be. Article 2 To our most learned Vice-President, Rev. Doctor Iohn R. Rooney, we, the Class of 1947, give our sincerest thanks for his most welcome advice, and our appreciation for his guiding hand during our four years here at the College of Our Lady of the Elms. Article 3 To Reverend Mother lohn Berchmans, S. S. l,, and the Reverend Sisters of Saint loseph, we give and bequeath our insufficient thanks for their willing- ness and fortitude in guiding us along the path of true Christian learning and for instilling in us a truly Catholic, womanly attitude toward the varying aspects of life. We shall never forget our dear Sisters, and we trust that God Almighty will reward them greatly for the comprehensive role they have played in the training of young Catholic women. May they find peace in the Sacred Hearts of lesus and Mary. Article 4 To our Chaplain and Professor of Religion, Reverend Thomas B. Pierce, we, the Class of '47, do hereby bequeath our deep appreciation for his generous part in preparing us for the complexities of the future and although we have not had the privilege of attending his classes during the entire course, we wish him to know that we shall always cherish his instruction and ever jovial manner Article 5 To our Professor of Philosophy, Reverend Doctor George A. Shea, we give our lasting gratitude for his help and patience in impregnating us with a working knowledge of scholastic philosophy. We wish also to tell him, our Father Shea, that the years spent at O. L. E. would not have been complete if he, a true philosopher, had not been there to share them with us. Article 6 To the Faculty of Our Lady of the Elms, we leave our sincerest affection and thanks for every hour of knowledge and kindness afforded us that we might accomplish our goal as true graduates of the College of Our Lady of the Elms. Article 7 To our dear "sister class" we leave our deepest love and affection and feel that they, the Class of Nineteen Hundred Forty-Nine, will ever uphold the bright traditions of their sister class-l947. In the presence ot the Senior Class, here at the College of Our Lady of the Elms, l hereunto subscribe our seal in the year of Our Lord, 1947. The Senior Class of O. L. E. Phyllis Marion Hoar, Class Attorney ll38l G!Cl.S'.S' I'Op QCQ Soar with me on the wings ot imagination ten years hence, to the year l957. The lounge ot O'Leary Hall is ablaze with lights and the room is animated with activity. Yes, it is the graduating class ot l947, who have assembled to renew old memories. Now those three by the fireplace, who are wildly waving their hands are not deaf mutes, as you may imagine, but are merely former French majors of the Class of '47. Mary McManus, Anne Marie King and Carolyn King have joined torces and operate a thriving little French restaurant, "Le Petit Gourmet" by name, in New York's Latin Quarter. They have met with such outstanding success that they plan to expand with a chain ot similar establishments. That prosperous-looking trio by the pianoeMary Boyle, lane Durkan and Betty Dolan-has sung its way into the hearts ot New York theater-goers by their unique renditions of current songs. Barbara Larkin, a talented pianist, is the only one able to accompany them. Another of our girls who has also succeeded in a musical way is Phyllis Hoar, "Phyl" warbles torch songs at one of the big night-clubs in San Francisco. Dorothy Lawe enjoys top rank among the current authors of mystery stories. Katherine Moriarty serves as her secretary and travelling companion. jeanne McDermott, now the mother of tour boys, lives in the West. Her letters to her former school chums, Dot and Kay, give vivid descriptions ot her lite there and supply Dot with many plots for her novels. Speaking ol newspapers, you'll never guess who edits the "New York Sun." Yes, loan McCaffrey, former editor ot our own enterprising "Elmscript," and a very competent editor she is. She often lunches with Mary Vittengl, a successful business executive with oitices in Rockefeller Center. Those two inseparables, Betty Ann Moynihan and Clare Donlin, have entered the tield ot commercial art, and both have excellent positions with advertising tirms. They got their experience making posters tor the "Campus Communique," remember? ll39l The three "mad scientists" who seem to be conversing in a foreign lan- guage, but are merely using everyday scientific terms, are Mary Sheehan, Ann Canty and Mary Iean McNamara. I've heard rumors to the effect that they have made a scientific discovery which will rival the atomic bomb. The scientific field is also represented by Dorothy Miner who now has her doc- torate and has flown all the way from South America where she is chief research chemist for a well-known oil company. Here come Catherine McDonnell, Mary Mara, Theresa Allen and Rosemary Tower. Their summer resort in Branford called the "Montafreeze" has become the exclusive place to go. They obtained their experience working summers at seaside haunts, it seems. Mary Shevlin, Therese Cartier and Alice Lappin still look as though they just stepped out of a bandbox. And why not? They have opened a specialty shop in Holyoke, where they feature modish Paris originals. Another Elms girl who has met with success in the world of fashion is Margaret Galleshaw, who edits a popular style magazine. Margie is ably assisted in her work by Ellen Martone who acts as business manager for the publication and Hedwig Wolochowicz who does the striking illustrations. Phyllis Vigneault and Rosemary Gallagher, rhythmic to their fingertips, have opened a school of the dance in Boston, and have created a sensation with the "Songa," an intriguing combination of the "Samba" and the "Conga" Helen O'Neill and Mary McElroy, both ardent lovers of history, hold impor- tant positions in Washington in the field of political science. Dorothy Manion is also in Washington, serving as state representative for Massachusetts. Ellin McCabe and Patricia Iohnson head the Chamber of Commerce in Lenox, Mass. They have certainly put their fair metropolis on the map by spreading its fame far and Wide. Lillian Meyer has realized her ambition at last. Principal of a nursery school on Long Island, she is happy as a lark with all her little charges. Her good friend Rosemary Donovan heads "Miss Donovan's School" on the Hud- son. This institution has a marvelous rating since Miss Donovan, besides being an admirer of culture, is a strict disciplinarian. Bette McKenna has just arrived. She is a bit late because she had to take the clipper from Spain. Amazing all with her facility in Spanish, she acts as chief interpreter at the American Embassy. I was just talking to Marion Burnett who is all wrapped up in her job as industrial engineer. She was trying to explain to me the mechanics of some complicated engine which she is designing, but I was a mite confused, as you can guess, Both Susan Fitzgerald and Maureen Smith have their own radio programs now, Susan's broadcast 'To the Housewife" is a favorite of every conscientious housekeeper and Maureen's "Clothes Corner" focuses attention on fashion and beauty hints, and is widely acclaimed all over America. Muriel Desautels is doing a fine job of raising five hardy children. She is certainly giving them a cultural background, starting them, as she does, with Latin as soon as they are able to read. Muriel always loved Latin sol Theresa Amiot has also achieved success in the literary world. Her short stories and poems are to be found in all the magazines. Barbara Parnell, an enthusiastic teacher, is using one of Theresa's collections of short stories in her senior English literature course. Well, during the evening, I seem to have met and spoken to all of my former classmates. It certainly has been edifying to see that everyone has done so well and is so genuinely satisfied with her line of work. We've had such a delightful time we hate saying goodbye, but lights still go out at tenl And I have reams to do to get Le Recueil out tomorrow. H401 Glass istory The final note of our senior year is about to resound, that of our graduation processional. Though it causes a shade of sadness, reminding us that we must part with all we have held most dear during these four brief years, it awakens, too, a sense of pride and gratification. The happy days we have had, the wonderful times we have known, the joy of being together and knowing each other so well, the priceless friends that are ours, and the power gained in the knowledge we have procured make our retrospect a happy one. And now, our senior farewell serenade- "Well always remember the golden September-" when a group of bee wildered freshmen were received into the fold, A few extra ribbons, a few bright colors, a few odd clothes, a few rules and regulations, and the freshmen found themselves in the midst of an initiation that the seniors long anticipated and now realized. Each senior in the Class of '47 knew that this was her last Freshman Week here on the campus, and thus relived her own orienta- tion at the hands of the seniors of four short years ago. When all students assembled for the banquet on Elms Night, the experiences of the past week were forgotten and the new Elmites launched their career amid songs and merriment. "Falling leaves tumble down-7' and our autumn melody brought with it October, the month of our spiritual retreat. We all set aside studies and extra-curricular activities and dedicated our thoughts, words and actions to God Alone. "Now were seniors at lasteu Then came the senior privilege of donning the academic garb. lnvestiturel We of '47 were proud, indeed, and tears glistened in our eyes as we walked down the chapel aisle clad for the first time in our cap and gown, followed by the fond glances of loving parents and admiring friends. "The moon and the stars-" The first affair upon which the social spotlight shone brightly was the "Elmata Dance," '47's initial whirl of the season which proved most successful. 1 fllill X7 "Were dreaming of a white Christmas-" December brought with it vaca- tion time and preceding it the memorable Sodality Christmas Party at which Saint Nicholas made OLE. the first stop of his tour. HA pretty girl is like a melody-" After the holidays came headaches in the form of mid-year exams, but in February the juniors brightened our campus with preparations for their clief-d'oeuvre, the junior Prom. The gym, transformed into a dreamy ballroom for the occasion, carried out the theme of lilting melody The Prom merited the heartfelt praise and admiration of seniors and underclassmen alike. 'lMy wild lrish roseeu The annual Father-Daughter Day celebration took place on Our Lady's campus under a haze of green, since the eve of St. Patricks influenced greatly both the decorations and trend of entertainment. lt was gratifying to see the Dads joining wholeheartedly in the general mirth- making. "ln your Easter bonnet-" We welcomed our Easter vacation and the thoughts that it brought with it of the approaching Easter Ball and Spring Concertgmany long, hard hours of work which were well repaid by the enjoyment experienced and the compliments received. UApril showers bring May flowers-" and so our last months here on the campus as students were upon us. We presented our class play, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gayf to the amusement and approval of all. Events fol- lowed in rapid succession, for as we had feted our Dads in March, in May we entertained our Mothers in like fashion at the annual Tea, The next event of special interest was the Tea Dance, a bit of brightness before the gray mist of final exams settled over the campus, Expectations of the Senior Ball, however, soon dispelled the shadows. "Should auld acquaintance be forgotew Symbolized by caps and gowns, diplomas and an aura of happiness Commencement Day arrived. Sad at leaving our beloved Alma Mater, we resolved to return often as loyal alumnae. When we have been long forgotten at Our Lady of the Elms we yet will recall it and each other with warm remembrances, Bidding you adieu, we say: ttThis to you who after us will go: 'Sweet may your days be in this place' " ll42l C1088 Oflg TM llntllilllfagerflfl aff mp fsleddraams of M95 rzf, My 750 .W have afcame M- 00 SOUH wrfge M 5 QF 5 was Fifgg ll fllfufull lmltllglfllifef 076 f?70P 16'-9 766. years we tyehfwffd 7014 We frdoes 4711475013 we- showed Wifi zf0ffflf1r6 Ml? fy Q l ,gg L E E gli lgatpl all Q JAHUEJE 1576 A HZEl'PfJUCEOfE fZ5r,,Ev0ff.i,5rEjejAL - W rem 0 I PF tt 555 rt tix? la?

Now it is that the future becomes a reality to each of us, for now, after long years of preparation, we are ready to take our in- dividual places in life, ready to assume the re- sponsibilities which lie be- fore us. Baccalaureate Sunday impresses this upon us, for it is the eve of our reception of the degree which crowns the achievement of our college days. The processional from Veritas Auditorium to the Chapel past the warm, loving glances of family and friends, the words of praise and encouragement spoken from the altar, the last solemn Benediction of our Eucharistic King and Lord, the unity so manifestly expressed in the singing of the underclassmen and seniors, the recessionaleall impart a thrill and become a part of our fondest memories.
