Foreword 'AO Lord of tlze far liorizoiis Give me the eyes to see Over the verge of the simdown The beauty that is to be." 'Tis at sundown one can gather a com- plete picture of what has been and plan for what will come. Thus as We gaze en- raptured at the glorious sundown of four years, We see reflected in our hearts and minds the beauty of time Well spent, knowl- edge richly acquired, moral principles deeply rooted, and friends forever ours. But in this sundovvn, We note, too, a ray of sadness mingled with a flash of loneliness when we realize that a Well-loved life is over and we stand on the brink of a strange new dawn. Therefore, in the ensuing pages, we have tried to capture in print that soul-stirring beauty which has made this college an integral part of each one of us. ,RA 'Hur ur' "If Zl'4I,S' fz befznfy ffm!

"The reception by the Senior Class of the College ot Our Lady ot the Elms of the Cap and Gown, brings us back to those great ages of Faith, the ages of the Uni- versities of Europe when each and every professor and student wore the Cap and Gown in school and out of school .... The wearing of the traditional Cap and Gown in those ages of Faith is but a reminder that had gone down the cen- turies, a reminder of the seamless robe that His mother wove for Him+that Man Vfho is, in His human personality, the Sacred Humanity of God. That robe which His Blessed Mother wove for Him covered the human person of the Son of God and everything for which He stood. So, we may say in the words of the Gospel, it encloses truth, it is He Who is "Insignia of Seniority." EtefnG1Tfuth. ' Q . Mllvery one who is of the truth, heareth My voice," Truth is what He taught. lt was the truth which He brought down from the Father in heaven. All during His public life on earth, He taught us the relation between God and man, between God and this world, every part of it. The relationship that exists between man and this world was taught by Him. He did not go up to heaven and leave us confused. No, He appointed that body of teachers who would unfold that truth for us, who would enlighten our minds so that that truth would grow more clear for each and every one of us. The Eternal Truth will be abiding with the Church down to the end of time .... TrutheWhat is truth? Here at a Catholic college, where the principles of our Divine Lord are taught, you learn the truth. You go out into the world with truth. You are able to solve not only the problems that come before you in life, but you are able, with that clearness of vision which truth gives you, ta stand up and lace the truth anywhere. In any social, economic, or any other type of problem, the Catholic college graduate has learned the lesson of right. With the lessons of truth which they have received at a Catholic college, they will not be afraid to stand before the world, knowing that truth will always prevail. ls this true in general? God grant that it would be true of each and every member of the Senior Class .... Members of the Senior Class, hold fast to the truth, for only those who are of the truth hear the voice of Christ, our Blessed Lord. Show forth the absolute truth of the Father in heaven, that Person Who is Truth, for "every one who is of the Truth, heareth My voice," l39l , ,, L 5. ilvamnr illll. Arnhrnm, 33.57. Springfield "Here naught but candur reigns, indulgent ease, They who are pleased tlzemselties, must always please." AY nonchalance with a collegiate air, a sly wink, and lustrous raven hair symbolize "Ellie", Who has left us in many a merry mood. lf you have met with her dry humor We need say no more. An unpredictable personality she manages to make her every venture interesting and is never found with time on her hands. A delight to the casual crowds that haunt the tea shops of the locale, she often knits diligently while pondering a perplexing query. A Chem major and Math minor, her interest in things scientific belie her passive air. Ellie is our proud boast for a better world where friendship is fundamental and fear unknown.

There is no doubt in our minds that she'll be an unusually efficient teacher and a charming asset to any educational system. She has proven herself an able assistant in the publication of "Las l-lojas de los Olmosf' and her patient perseverance has produced many masterpieces of clear-cut sten- ciling.

As the able leader of the Mission Committee and a vibrant note in the Glee Club, Fran gaily danced her Way into our hearts. A history major and a Rhode Island Beach minor, Fran may well be set upon by any corridor ghost seeking the protagonist ot those famous midnight tunafish-coke parties. Happy and willing participant in all activities from chairmaning a sport dance to tossing a ball on the basketball court, "sing and the World sings with you" might Well be her maxim.

Her slncerity, gentleness and absolute unselfishness cannot be cloaked by her logical, cool manner. To those who have shared her friendship she is the epitome of all that is desirable. A delightfully interesting orator she can amaze you with her calm logical reasoning, be it a heated debate or class discussion. Never one to suffer from those blue book blues she is the proud possessor of scholastic honors galore. Her joy of living and love for the unusual can never be for- gotten when We recall those summers at the shore with the usual group. A math major, she usually finds time to read the latest novels, keep informed on current events and spend a weekend or two in Connecticut. Fame and good fortune are yours now and forever.

Moonbeams lightly trace the letters on my well-filled scrapbook and all thoughts of sleep are banished as bound- ing out of bed l once again eagerly relive my year as a gay young sophomore. A cancelled railroad ticket brings memories of September l7th and our nonchalant registration that flagrantly displayed before the obvious freshmen the at-home attitude of oldtimers. A feather stolen from an unsuspecting lndian and a teepee place card make those earesplitting wahoos of lnitation Week re-echo through the halls. Turning the pages, cherished memories of the spiritual retreat under the inspirational direction of Fr. Harney, impressive Cap and Gown ceremony of our beloved sister class and the gay Elmata, harbinger of the social whirl, have each a special place. My eyes rest longest on this pageethe Halloween party, first sophomore pro- duction. The fun we had staging our dream travelogue, those clever center pieces and most effective decorations are all so clear and dear. We indeed H051 proved ourselves worthy hostesses of OL.E.l Next, the traditional Christmas celebration with only a small green streamer to symbolize such a big occa- sionebut the seniors' carolling, the manger scene, those old hymns rendered by the Glee Club, Santa Claus and, naturally, the tree, are indelibly printed on memoryts page. Whats this, saucily sticking out?-a mid-term report card, mute reminder of those needless hours of blue-book blues. A pressed corsage and a star release a flood of heavenly moments enjoyed dancing at the biggest social event of the year, the junior prom! But enough of this dreaming and moaning over a dance. Heres the ClarkeElms varsity basketball game. Lose we did, but next year welll profit by experience and we still have that unquenchable Elms spirit that made the game a game for both players and spectators. Whatl Another pressed flower? And from the man in my life, tool Still fragrant evidence of one of the nicest days on the school calendar it signifies another Father-Daughter reception with the spirit of proud Dads and adoring Daughters undampened by inconsiderate New England weather. Only a few pages remain-a picture of girls in gowns and fellows in tuxedos represents the successful combined concert of the Boston and Elms College Glee Clubs, a program as light as the breath of spring itself is surrounded by the glow of special memories connected with our May Spring Formal, and a few daisies entwined with ivy conjure up that recent academic procession of commence- ment week. Tomorrow is graduation and l needs must get some sleep if l want to be at my best. One more class leaves the Elms and we have grown to love them all, but how glad l am that this is only l948 and there are for me two more wonderful years at the college of all our hearts. Patricia A.

MURPHY CLASS FLOWER: Bachelor Button CLASS COLORS: Blue and Silver Freshman Fabric As freshman year draws to a close, let us retrace the design of the fabric which is the commencement of the pattern to be woven by us during our four years at the Elms. On September 17, some ninety freshmen gathered on the campus of Our Lady of the Elms, and with natural misgivings began to create the rich tapestry of college life. Memorable datel l On that day we met the girls with whom we were to live, laugh, work, and pray for four years. The tapestry was to be a mosaic design, a blending of four score and ten individual talents and personalities. The manyfhued threads of our personalities and talents were, however, some- what covered over by the loudecolored Indian blankets and flaming feathers H081 f' M. Maher, R. Kellett, M. Hourihan, C. Moylan, M. Moylan, M. Gorman, E. Kattar, K. Nagle. G. lose-ph, I. McCarthy, E. Hennessey, T. Lobley, E. Matarese, E. O'Brien, I. LaPlante, P. Martowski, M Murphy. B. Millea, A. Larkin, L. Molter, M.

Our weaving was oft interrupted by a peremptory "Make that bedl Singl Dust!" or the ominous questionnaire, l'What time is it?" "l-low do you address a Senior?" As a result, a scrutinizing look at the warp will reveal slight imperfections, knots, snags and even wisps of dust. After this week of hazing, hectic for freshmen, but no doubt happy for seniors, Elms Night continued the series of bright threads which were to be woven into an intricate pattern. Our war-whoops, a convenient disguise for the trepidation preceding the official initiation, were changed to shouts of delight at the grand finale of the week when, from the mezzanine in the foyer, seniors tossed the freshman caps into outstretched hands below. How well those vivid green and gold fibers blend in the ensemble! The heavier thread which needs must form the foundation of any material of quality was woven through the texture with our first spiritual retreat together. Cn Qctober twenty-sixth, a darker tint was merged with the gayer hues when a freshman's dream of four years ago became a reality and each senior, from priestly hands, received a precious bundle bound with green and gold- her black cap and gown. The gaiety of the Sophomore Halloween Party shed little rays of light on our tapestry and a colorful touch was added with the lunior-Freshman Tea! H091 T. Corley, M, Dooling, M. Bresnahan, T.

As the child seeking the aid of her mother with her first attempts at needle- work, so also we frosh, at our reception into the Sodality, sought the guidance of our Spiritual Mother with the hope that our pattern would grow in beauty and design under her protective mantle of blue. The red and green of the merry Christmas Party found ready contrast with the somber grey of semester exams. We supplied the warp and woof to our fabric on February eleventh when we elected as class officers, Margaret Bowen, Beverly Boy, Helene Brady, and Marguerite Murphy. A rosy glow of remembrance is interlaced in our design in the form of the lQlmataeeour first college dance, Every frosh was thrilled and can we be blamed il a few daydreams have slipped into our pattern? the sports danced and more daydreams, the junior prom where we gathered those sparkling specks of stardust you see glistening. On examining our tapestry, we found it could be enhanced by a little fine embroidery to express sincere and heartfelt gratitude to parents. The design took shape in Father-Daughter and Mother-Daughter banquets. Only thus far has the pattern of our college life been woven. May tlic luturc but add to the richness and brilliance of our freshman fabricl Lorraine B. Molter ll1Ul 1 Freshman Initiation Tomftoms, tomaliawlqs, Sozmds and sights to sec, Seniors served hy Sioux,- Tliis at O.L.E. When the class of '48 returned to the Elms in September as the exalted Seniors, one thought was uppermost-this is our yearl And what more auspicious beginning could we have had than the traditional initiation of freshmen carried on in our own inimitable-if slightly erratic4style. Picture these stately grounds suddenly reverted into an Indian Reservation with braves and sguaws colorfully arrayed in blankets and inoccasins, equipped with menacing tomahawks and emitting sounds heard only in the best of Hop-a-long Cassidy adventures. The class of 'Sl made more realistic and evasive Indians than the famed former inhabitants of Chicopee. Our slightest whim was their command and Ohvto relive once more a week of complete relaxation-an Indian to fan us as we read, carry our purses downtown, make our beds and lullaby us to sleep, and most of all, to inflate our egos to the bursting point by telling us expressively, if insincerely, what wisdom, culture, poise and savoir-faire were uniquely ours. Who killed the noble Mudjokivis? This tongue-twisting theme of the initia- tion caused many a sleepless hour for the harried freshmen who just couldn't seem to memorize, But Elms Night was the cli- max. A feast fit for the kings was held in their honor and later we ad- journed to the auditorium where for the last time these vivacious Indians were to be at our mercy, And merciless we were as initiation antics made the hall ring with laughter. Good fellowship was the keynote and if during the week senior scowls were the bane of a poor fresh- man's existence, now sen- ior smiles are tenderly di- rected at these new-found friends and good sports, the noteso-verdant fresh- E men of OLE. l l , Vvfaliool Vtfalioo! lllll Svnrivtivn mth Glluhn 'Tlicrc is mi hcazity so whiting As mcn in mzctical lilws CO77'llWlHiH'T.H X .-. Extra-curricular events have comprised a goodly portion ot college days. Banded to- gether in clubs and societies that give added zest to our mutual interests we have broadened immeasurablv our mental hori- zons. Concerts to inspire our souls, de- bates and conferences to enilame our ideals, plays to delight our spirits, lectures to intensity our thoughts and the most varied activities, physical, cultural and spiritual, formed memorable dates on the college agenda. Friendships thus deeply rooted in common ground will flourish tor time immemorial and enrich the lives oi those who share them. Spiritual Retreat Our spiritual retreat here at the Elms is an integral part of every year. These three days of silence in which our thoughts become untangled, our minds are freed from worldly affairs, and our souls achieve an exalting union with God, are days of preparation and fortification for the issues to be met during life. Thus the retreat is given first place among our activities, for without the ideals fostered through it, all others would lose flavor. This fall we had as retreat-master the Rev. Iames Harney, Sl., who in thrice- daily conferences and personal visits directed our thoughts along channels Rev. lames Harney, SI. never before explored by us. "A retreat is a council of war," Father stated at the outset, "in which we plot the defeat of our enemies, the world, the flesh and the devil, by planning all for the greater honor and glory of God." lt is with sincerity and gratitude that we acknowledge the fact that, if Gods propa- gandists were all as capable as Father Harney, the world would be far more conscious of the only important and worthwhile battle to be fought, that batttle whose victory means eternal happiness. Our three-day council of war gave us an opportunity to consult with our Commander-in-Chief, in order to discard any bad tactics used heretofore and concentrate on the new stratagem of overcoming evil by true Christian living, basing our attack on the prime mcxim, "l must love God above all things and my neighbor as myself, for the love of Him." But how are we to do battle against such seemingly insurmountable odds in the world today? We have the atomic bomb of the immaterial to sound victory for us when we make proper use of the greatest weapon known to mankind- prayer. "More things are wrought by prayeruvbut prayer is not just a separate part of our lives reserved for Sundays and holydays, for unless it is an innate part of every act, then it is as ineffective as a key faltering on the edge of a keyhole or yeast lying beside the bread dough. However, as in any war, the malicious propaganda of the enemy has begun to infiltrate our ranks. The flagrancy of sin and its outgrowth, hatred, are sufficient evidence of the wiles of the enemy. Therefore, our immediate aim must be to attack this malignant growth with every ounce of desire for good that is in'us. The tide of battle must be turned in our favor. The world is in desperate need of the love of neighbor which is our battlefcry. Let us go forth armed spiritually and morally with the ideals of the brotherhood of man and overcome with good works the havoc that has been wrought by evil deeds. fll3l ur' Ladys Sodality Prefect Secretary ANN M. MARSHALL CAROL l. KNIGHT VicefPrefect Treasurer ELIZABETH A. AIDICON MARGARET E. HURLEY The Sodality of Our Lady forms the focal point around which all other activities revolve. Combining both the spiritual and the social, this organiza- tion concerns itself with everything from the daily rosary to the spring formal. For efficier1cy's sake the Sodality functions are divided into six sections with committees to supervise them, The devotion of the perpetual rosary here on campus has revived and survived due to the tireless efforts of Our Lady's Com- mittee under the chairmanship of losette Maynard. The artistic talents of mem- bers of the Eucharistic Committee and their chairman, Mary Morgan, have made Gur Lady's bulletin a daily enjoyment for all. Of prime importance also is Catherine Canty's committee on Liturgy, as evidenced by the commission our college holds in the N.F.C.C.S. fll4l Naturally, no Sodality would be '.K,' ortliy of the name if charity, the greatest of allf' were missing. Our Mission Committee under the direction of Frances Boratyn and Sally Eisenmann has wrought much happiness near and far, And dear to our hearts, too, are Peg Sullivan and her Literary Committee who organized for us those informational discussions and sponsored that most enjoyable coffee hour. The social affairs of the Sodality are indeed varied. l.fary Rynn, chairman of the Social Committee, and her assistants, Frances Boratyn, Natalie Connors, and Mary Nelen, made pleasant for all, the Christmas party, complete with pageant, appropriate hymns, tree and Santa Claus, Probably t '.',' o of the most popular activities of the Sodality are the Father-Daughter and lfother-Daughter banquets when we have an opportunity to show our parents why this college is so dear to us. Fun for everyone is our miniature bazaar with white elephant, novelty and refreshment booths, Were still wondering where the funior Class begged, borrowed or stole such a spectacular contraption as was displayed in their boothl The climax of the social season for this committee is our spring formal-a success financially, breathes the treasurer thankfully and a success socially, grant all of us dreamily, A story old, get ever neu: H151 X f-v-'N' ' ' EV -w re- l ,,: lVIeml9ei's of tlze Sodalitx' ' fete tlieir "little sisters" at Mt, S ' t.

F, President ANNA MAE MARTIN Vicefpresidevtt Secretary GERALDINE E. lVlcCAl:lTHY ROSEMANE Ci DALTON The purpose of this club is the discussion of problems of the day and the attainment of a lucid understanding in order that we may combat these problems intelligently and effectively when they confront us. Twice monthly the senior philosophy students assembled with this aim in mind. Anna Mae, our president, very ably conducted the meetings and directed our debateedis- cussions on such controversial disputes as labor and management, com- munism, birth control and the relationship of church and state. Much was accomplished and not a few hazy ideas concerning the religious, moral and social aspects of our modern day problems were clarified. Father Shea, philosophy professor, moderator, and beloved walking encyclopedia, was always at hand to explain the Churchs stand on any conflicting ideas. This Social Action Club to which we are affiliated and obligated has been an important factor in molding our minds to think logically and to act justly. H181 Lectures October 23 Rev. lames Keller, M.M. The Christophers "It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness." Father Keller, originator of the Christopher movement, explained convincingly and sincerely its aim, success so far achieved and future needs. Organized to "encourage at least a million Amerie cans to restore and reintegrate into American life the basic fundamentals of Christian civilization upon whch our country was founded and without which it cannot endure," its method of advance- ment is through individual lay persons, like ourselves. November 10 Mrs. Dorothy Freemont Grant Apostolate of the Pen "There are fertile acres to till." An author of such well known books as "War ls My Parish." Mrs. Grant was a veritable fount of information for aspiring writers. Taking as her theme the dearth of good books bee cause of the modern tendency to commercialize talent, she also stressed the crying need for authors who will write for their day and time, even though fame is without their reach. December 9 Reverend Michael L. Carney, STL. Reception Address "Behold, then, and he not blind." The life of Mary and its bearing on the life of each Sodalist was forcibly brought home to us by Father Carney. Gur pagan and godless world is hungry for the ways of Christ, and we, as Catholic College women, can lead it to Him in Marys ways.

Miss Silva, under the auspices of the Holyoke Catholic VVomen's Club, gave an eye-witness account of'Fatima as experienced in her tour through Spain last summer. Fatima is of special interest because of the prominence it has gained with relation to Russia and her conversion. February 26 Rev. lohn M. Gesterreicher Walls Are Crumbling "Stumbling .steps in the right direction." The substance of the lecture delivered by this gentle, yet forceful, Austrian priest, concerned itself with the improved relations between lews and Catholicism which indicate that at some points the walls separating lews from Christ are finally crumbling. Cur duty, in the name of Christ, lies in on honest attempt at understanding them whose name has been be- smirched, whose relations have been slaughtered and who are ridden by fear and suspicion. Father Oesterreicher cited strik- ing signs of a changed attitude among lews, witness the books written by outstanding lewish scholars, as Asch and Werfel. March 10 Dr. Urban H. Fleege Mental Health A'Tl1elie5' is selffcontrolf' The idea that mental health is not automatic but achieved by serious effort was a startling one and gave much food for thought. Condensing the achievement into ten rules, Dr. Fleege advised us to develop a Christian outlook and an ade- ' guate philosophy of life.

MURRAY The NFCCS is an overall student organization formed to coordinate and integrate student activities not only on the individual campus but also on an intercollegiate scale. Nominally, it is the National Federation ot Catholic College Students. ln effect, it is an organization which will stimulate Catholic College Students to take a Catholic stand on matters political, social and economic. For a major national project this year the NFCCS chose World Student Reliet, thereby assisting in the rehabilitation ot a war-torn world. The New England Region, composed ol eighteen colleges, has as its specific commis- sions Catholic Action, Liturgy and Student Government. Our Lady ot the Elms holds the chairmanship of the Liturgy Commission and conducted an all-day panel discussion on the Liturgy at the Regional Congress held in Boston, April '48 OLE. held the chairmanship ol the Worcester area ot World Student Relief, and through the NFCCS took an active part in the much-pub- licized Radio Acceptance Poll wherein radio comedians were rated on the basis ot their acceptability in the family circle. The etlects of NFCCS are evident on campus even at this early date. Through it we are now a part ol the whole and will take our place with other students in bringing Catholic thought to a secularized populace. H201 M. B.

The Dramatic Club on any campus is usually popular, Verdeoro is no exception. Produc- tions worthy of professionals have been presented to most appreciative audiences and the labor, sometimes heartbreak, that they involve are for- gotten and the cast reigns supreme. Not to be forgotten, however, are the stage hands and property movers whose difficult task it is to see that there's a place for everything and everything in its place. H231 This year's activities were highlighted by the presentation of the familiar "Peg Of My Heart." Surprise to one and all, a mite of a freshman captured the stellar role and on the big night managed to capture our hearts. A char- Qrcter-and actor of the Senior Class, in the role we nick-named "Mr Moto" was also received heartily by the spectators. The Christmas season cn the campus was climaxed by the combined pro- duction of Dramatic and Cflee Clubs under the auspices of the Sodality. A pageant, as old as the Christian era itself, but as new and wonderful as each morning Mass, was presen'ed for the students and faculty to enjoy and cherish, When Lent shed its spirit of sorrow and repentance about us, Verdeoro came on the scene with an appropriate drama. With a cast composed of the freshmen members of the club, "The Upper Room" with all its tragedy and pathos brought us closer to that Godelffan who suffered so much at our hands. lt was indeed a fitting presentation for Passion Week. With the arrival of spring and approaching commencement, Verdeoro mem- bers were kept busy in their various class productions. Yes, our Dramatic Club has done much for the college, but even more than that, Verdeoro has contributed to the fulfillment of the dream of those aspiring actresses and to the entertainment of our college audiences, "l'cgU'1NfyHui1rt I lure' ynzidl I l24l G ee Club President Secretary LORHAINE T. DesHOSlEHS ANN T. MCNAMEE VicefPresident Treasurer MARION T. MEEHAN MARY T. MAHONEY "Music hath charms"-and our college Glee Club is convincing proof of the phrase. Those constant hours of practice are well rewarded by the volume and sincerity of the applause wherever they appear. The season's program began with the coffee hour sponsored by the Literary Club and was followed by the Christmas Party held in the auditorium for the first time. Throughout the Christmas season the veteran Cflee Club carolers entertained at the Sacred Heart Hall in Holyoke and the Womens Club in Springfielde not to mention those two beautiful programs over near-by radio stations. Naturally, the big event of the year was the spring concert with the Boston College Glee Club and the unanimous opinion is "the best ever." Something new was added when A Cappella Choir visited Holyoke to demonstrate at a lecture on Gregorian music. Certainly, Lorraine as director and Anne McDon- nell, as accompanist, deserve much of the credit for such a successful and enjoyable year. H251 .41 9 1 1 ll? -.W vw: ! xi- ia . rQgQ,.jf,,- . .

A wide variety of class- ical and popular selections ranging from Handels "And the Glory of the Lord" to songs from the operetta, "The Red Mill" by Victor Herbert, comprised the program of a most enjoyable evening. Christopher Lynch, the "Voice of Fires stone" and protege of the late lohn lVlcCore mack, made his first appearance in this vicinity at the Springfield Auditorium, under the auspices of the Elms Alumnae. Born in lreland, he has become as the breath of the lsle itself to millions in our own country. The haunting beauty of "Mother Machreen and "l'll Remember You" as sung by this re- nowned lrish tenor will not easily be forgotten.

On the more serious side, the history of Spanish culture and its effects on present day civilization were often discussed. The current Spanish question inaugurated many an argument with the pro-Franco enthusiasts, usually in the majority. Not least in irnportance is the club publication, Las I-lojas de Los Olrnos. Under the editorship of lacgueline Patrie, bigger and better editions appeared each month, the outstanding number being the centennial issue.

Like all other clubs on our campus, the Science Club aims to combine the social and moral with the intellectual, Scientific discoveries and theories are interpreted in the light of Catholic thought and ethics.

T137T Probably the most talked of sport this year was varsity basketball, A new activity involving doctors' certificates, permissions, uniforms, tedious hours of practice and other minor details, it was hailed with great enthusiasm. Games were scheduled with Clark University of Worcester and Mt. St. Mary's of Hook- set, N. H. Three games played-three games lost, but the experience and fun were well worth the effort. And who knows what future teams may do? Not to be pushed into the background by varsity is the all-time traditional intra-mural basketball tournament. 'Tis then spirit runs high and each night sees one class walking on clouds with another slumped in the depths of defeat. March 17 was the night of the big play off and much to the chagrin of the seniors the energetic young freshmen walked off with the alumnae trophy. Along came spring, and any night cries of 'Kill the umpire" or "Strike three" could be heard wafting into the staid halls of CLE. Weekly trips to the Springfield Boys Club by the Esther Williams enthusiasts of the Association brought about many an improvement in those side-strokes and Australian crawls. Fall and spring were the popular seasons for frequenting the Westover Riding Academy, with Mag Bowen, expert equestrian, ever ready to give pertinent instruction to somewhat timid freshmen. Archery and Ping Pong, too, had their turn, with Dorothy Casey winning the latter trophy. On the social page of activities the Athletic Association is credited with a very successful Tea Dance held on May 15 in the lounge of O'Leary. The finale of the years program was the annual banquet at which the awards were made for the various sports and the eagerly-awaited green and gold "Es" were presented to those who had satisfied the necessary requirements for the college athletic letter.

Shea Dear Alumnae-to-be: You probably don't exactly appreciate that title right now, because it more or less harbinges a separation from the school and friends you love. Believe me, though, it will become a source of great comfort and pride to you in the days that follow graduation. lt will signify a tangible connection you have with your beloved school and a common cause for which you and your friends can work-friends from whom you would otherwise gradually drift apart, because of varying interests. Ours is a relatively young school, you know, and that means that our alumnae association is even younger - even with the staunch and loyal graduates of the Academy and Normal School, our own particular Hpioneersf we number only 800. And l don't believe there's a millionaire in the crowd! So, if at any time, you become impatient with us because we havent pre- sented you with a new swimming pool or non-collapsible card tables, just remember that the spirit is willing, but the pocketbook bare. The main thing to remember is that we are growing steadily, because sweet, fine, intelligent girls like yourselves come to swell our ranks year after yearg and by the time your daughters graduate, who knows, perhaps one or two millionaires will have found their way into our group! Seriously, our main function is to be of benefit to our school and yourselves. Any plans that we may make are made for the furtherance of the aims of our school, any honors we may gain are won so that they will reflect on our school and on all its students and graduates. Until lune 5, when you will become members of our beloved association. Sincerely, KAY SHEA President I 147 I Qftnmmvnrvmvni "VKilw ivttllqs itwtli betittry litre it lmmyuet spread.

'T VTE If BOURQUE Class History-1948 "We've come to the end of a perfect path." This may well be the theme song of every senior as she looks back over her four years journey through col- lege life. "We were verdant freslimen, Oh, the greeriest of the green," describes us as we started on our college days back in 1944. lt was with mixed emotions we approached these halls of learning. Friendly hands welcomed us and for the first week we were treated like real visitors. Then Doomll We were launched into lni- tiation Week. Few of us will ever forget our football formations and cheers, for the seniors had converted our campus into a giant stadium for the occasion. After Initiation Week and that unforgettable first Elms Night, we were full-fledged UElrnites". With this came the new-found joy of doing everything for the first time as an Elms girl. "Arid the gayesr Sopliomores That the Elms has ever seen." Yes, that we were, as we returned to school with a feeling akin to that which one experiences on re- turning home - a feeling of joy, security and of be- longing. We are still talking about the marvelous show which we put on that yearg the best ever, in our biased opinion. l-low wonderful and exciting it was as we made the rounds of New Yorks fashion- able night-clubs and smart hotels on our Manhattan Merry-go-roundl "And junior year last year. Oli, that was the best year." How true it wasl We were upperclassmen at last! We had survived the hesitancy and awe of under- classinen, and our sympathies went out to the grave old seniors who were now doing things for the last time. From September to February 7 we talked, sang, thought nothing but "Our Prom". To realize an "exawtic" prom with such a romantic theme as HA Pretty Girl is Like a Melody", walls were deco- rated with graceful black silhouettes against a back- ground of shimmering, silvering pink. Overhead danced the rainbowed lights of the crystal ball, while under the star-studded ceiling we waltzed to dreamy music, This was a night in a year never to be for- gotten. "If music be the food of love, play on." I l 5 ll 'fThe Greeks had a word for it" The joy of Iunior Year was marred only when our beloved friend and chaplain left us. Our gratitude to Father Sheehan will ever remain in our hearts and congratulations go with him to his Church of the Little Flower. x'Nuu' at last we are The Senior Class of O.L.E." The emotions which we experienced this last year have been numerous and varied. For us it was the beginning of the end. Three years we have been awaiting the time when we would be initiating other freshmen, .verdant as we ourselves. Once the time had come, the stately campus was transformed over- night into an Indian reservation. Meekt?D Indian squaws and stalwart braves dressed in bright blan- kets and colorfully befeathered, provided a spec- tacular Freshman Class. The pow-wow marshmal- low roast, mock marriage and loud war dances high- lighted the weeks ceremonies which were culmi- nated by a gala Elms Night. ln October we entered with more than usual fervor into our Spiritual Retreat, knowing it to be our last. Happiness, pride, and a shade of sadness filled our hearts as we walked down the aisle on Cap and Gown Sunday dressed for the first time in our aca- demic garb. Came November and our plans were underway for the Elmata dance. lts success, finan- cial and otherwise, was but a forerunner of many more to be sponsored by that same class. Christmas comes but once a year, and when it came to the Elms it brought oh, so many trimmings - our Christmas play, carol singing, Christmas tree, old St. Nick, and last but not really least, Christmas vacation. Mid-year exams with their traditional worry, nom- inal or real, could not divert our thoughts from the lunior Prom. At nine o'clock we were going up the "Stairway to the Stars", and danced until one under the silvery, twinkling sky. In March the Elms girls dated their best boy friends, their Dads. Very little needs to be saic about this occasion, for everyone well knows the whole-hearted fun and happiness which are hac when our Dads come to the Elms to celebrate St Patrick's Day. To make the day wholly theirs, c Saint Patricks Day program was presented, a warrr welcome tendered, and a sumptuous banquet placec before them. The joy of the lengthened vacation, the new fash- ions, and all that our early Easter ushered in, were well-nigh eclipsed by the eager anticipation of oui Elms-BC. concert and our Spring Formal. Bott events surpassed our most sanguine hopes. "Tis the month of our Mother," we soon were sing- ing, and honor, too, we paid to our dear mothers For our traditional Mothers Day Tea, we substituted a banquet, and strove by diverse ways to give greater expression than ever to our love and grati- tude. Other outstanding events in May-Senior Play Tea Dance, and Marys Day -followed in suclr rapid succession that ere long, we were on the thres- hold of graduation. Commencement Week, with its manifold activities, all so pertinent and significan to us seniors, is a history in itself Class Day is one chapter, closely linked with our picnic, banquet, sen- ior play, and the grand finale, graduation, as "Orme again we pledged to her our faitli and loyalty To f1tJ7'lOTfOT61'6T, dislmnor her never, Dear O.L.E."

Never in the annals of American colleges has such a unique idea taken form, but here it is, bequeathed to OLE. by none other than that notorious, efferves- cent bundle of brains and beauty, the class of '48, Filled to capacity with historical documents and pictures of that famous class, the train will make its way to every city of importance wherein a number of '48 resides. A puff of the engine, a familiar ring of the bell, and she's off! Wait a minute, the engineer is waving frantically from the pin-hole window. Well, if it isn't Liz Mur- phy, with the situation well under control. As presi- dent of the "Advice to the Lovelorn Club," Liz has sacrificed valuable time to make this trip. However, back at her Worcester office, exotic to say the least, all is well, because the vice-president of the club, Mary Nelen, has taken over and it is said that she is quite adept at solving older people's problems. It's a cheerful office, for at any time of the day Mary can be heard whistling "Elmer's Tune." Need more be said? Springfield has slipped into the distance now and aboard the train the excitement of the day is reflected in a rapid-fire conversation between the engineer and the star reporter of the Union, Ieanne Bourque. "Well, Ieanne, what's new with the class of '48 around your section of the country?" "Liz, did you hear the latest? Pat Kelly Ellis and her husband, Wayne, now own their own exclusive restaurant, 'The Blue Sky,' and cater especially to Elms girls and their dates. And that's not all. The orchestra is wonderful and plays under the name of 'Musical Mackey and Her Rubber Band.' Also fea- tured with the orchestra are 'Patrie at the Piano' and their vocalist, 'Morales in the Mood.' " Meanwhile, many towns have come and gone and the New York skyline beckons ahead. With a screech of the brakes the train comes to a standstill and it's Grand Central, the first stop of the tour. Thousands are gathered waiting to inspect this phantasm on wheels. The doors are open and they're literally pouring into itl "Liz, look at that set of twins over there. Dont they look like Kit Courtney?" "Here come Kit and Tom now calling to Margaret Mary and Michael lohn, two handsome children How is married life, Kit?" "Liz, it's just wonderful. We have the time of our lives every Saturday taking in the races up at Mag and Tim's Bacetrack in East Overshoe. Enoch Bor- land is still coming in--with a tail-light, that Mary Mahoney sends her regards from Philadelphia Her exciting night spot, 'The Eire Club' is known far and wide for its Irish dances and sensational feature, 'Morgan at the Organf Mary lives next door to a firehouse so she finds it easier to work at night." "Liz, isn't that loan Walsh and Bose Cotter making their way through the crowd?" "You just made it, the train is almost ready to pull out for Chicago. What makes you so late?" "lt's this way, Liz. Since I took over the Times l havent had a minute to myself, trying to keep up with my competitor, the 'Scarmel Scribunef Peg Sullivan handles my society page and right now she's back at Chicopee covering a fashion show sponsored by NECCS. Peg acquired her excellent taste in fashions from that exclusive Newport dress shop that she owned for so many years. Poor Rose is exhausted. She hasn't caught up on her sleep since she left O.L.E. ten years ago. Her Spanish- Americari Basketball Team has just completed a world-wide tour under the sponsorship of the 'Bo- ryczka Tuna Fish Company' sold exclusively to Elms girls with a 'Clever Canty Can Opener' in every package. Rosie's team won the international cham- pionship and their reward is a cruise to Australia aboard the SS. BIGABABT "All aboardl Hurry everybody, she's pulling out. So long, New York. Chicago and all points westl' "Liz, come here quick." "What's the matter, lemme?" "lsn't that Mary Ann Blair 'W' all and Dick with a large following standing on the platform? She cer- tainly took Pr. Pierces marriage course to heart, lo"t J- I wonder how shes doing without a Bendix. H551 L Did you know that when we reach Chicago we'll be on the airgNVALl, the Moriarty Broadcasting System. lt's a national hookup so we'll have to be at our best. As national chairman of L.S.A.C.S. - Less Studies For American College Students - Alice has done nobly. leanne, I almost forgot. Gerry McCarthy has been tied up in a business deal in Walla Walla for weeks now. lt seems that her Chocolate Bon-Bon Company' has been sued for 825,000 for using the recipe from the 'Gregory Gooey Chocolate Company' joe O'Connor has been handling the case for Gerry but shes been so upset she decided to spend a week out at lMary Diggins' Dude Ranch' lt's the wild and Wooly type, known for miles around for its wide assortment of horses raised by that famous eguestrienne, Bonnie Finn. Bonnie decided that the carefree life of the ranch far surpassed the hustle-bustle of the laboratory, so she sold her research plant in Nashville to Buthrnary Wirtalla. Budy is perfecting an ear plug for Chem- istry majors that will prevent formulas from going in one ear and out the other, Look, there's Chicago ahead." The galloping pace has slowed down to a trot and the panting engine comes to a gradual halt, Ujeanne, do you see what l see?" 'Specify please, Liz. With half the city of Chicago here and me not a mind reader, Tm not liable to be looking at the same thing." "l'm talking about the band- 'Swing and Sway the Eisenmann Way' Sally seems to be shaking her baton at the sax player, and if l'm not mistaken it's Eleanor Ambrose knitting a horrible-looking pair of gloves. Ever since she knitted those mittens for Dr. Nazzaro she's had to devote her whole life tc knitting for the public." "These crowds are worse than New York. They're pushing down the aisle, Liz. Wait a minute, - some- one fainted-the smelling saltsl lt's Doctor Annc May Martin, She's coming to. Are you all right?' "l'rn fine, jeanne, it's just that l've been working day and night at the hospital and it's catching up or me, My head surgeon, Dr. Mary Driscoll, perforrnec a tonsilectomy on one of Marion Mercier Loughman': auintuplets and, of course, it gave us quite a bit o publicity. Being a Chem major, Marion named the auints accordingly: Ima lon, Katalyst Kate, Argor Annie, Phosphate Phyllis, and Bunsen Betty. Poi emergencies at the hospital we use 'Madden's Mir acle Airways' They don't tell you until you lanc that it is a miracle if you arrive at your destination Since losette Maynard has become instructor o pilots the casualty list has become much smaller The secret of it all is that fewer people are traveling by air. "Liz, look over there near our class day picture lt's Pat Fehily with a handsome Navy officer. She always did go for blue serge. Oh, dear, he's walk ing away. l guess he was just an onlooker. Here comes Pat now with her kindergarten brood - Hella Pat, how is the world treating you?" 'lThe world is just fine, but these brats turn it up side down. They wouldnt be so bad but Mrs O'Leary's son, Don, lr., is like a perpetual rnotioi machine." "Do you recognize that redhead coming this way Liz?" "Certainly, it's Mary Bynn. Hello, Mary, when have you been keeping yourself?" "Havent you heard, Kids? Ann Marshall and have just bought the largest slaughter-house in Chi cago. Cur meat is shipped to every city in the U.S.A through the Connors Consolidated Trucking Com pany. Natalie, who is the 1958 winner of the Nobe Prize in Chemistry, spends her free moments relax ing behind the wheels of her 'Mack' trucks, namei after a favorite Chemistry professor of hers." H561 "lf you have time you should read Peg Hurley's latest book, 'Our Hearts Are Not So Gay As They Used To Be.' lt's first on the best seller list, but Clare Eitz's new publication, 'Came A Buckaroo' is running a close second." The whistle is sounded, the wheels begin to turn and adventure in Oregon awaits. "Liz, wake upl" "Erannie, Pat Street, Pat Hourihanl Are we in Portland already?" "Of course. We've been waiting for the train for an hour. There are students here from all over the state. Our newly organized college, 'Our Girl Of The Cedars,' is gaining world renown for its history, Spanish and science departments. Fran and l man- age the arts course, with Pat Street taking care of the sciences. The notorious physics department is in the capable hands of Dr. Electrode Mulgrew. Ein- stein has spent three years trying to figure out her latest theorem on 'Large Charges.' " "Our time is growing short, we must be on our way. Goodbye Oregon, California here we comel" Aboard the train there is wild anticipation as thoughts of Hollywood are fast being realized. "Ch, leanne, I had a telegram from Renee de Mochak, sent from Beverly Hills, and she won't be able to connect with us in Hollywood. Her producer, Rita Hannigan, plans to start shooting for her new pictures, 'A Hundred Girls and No Men' " "The train is slowing up, Liz. Am l dreaming? We're really here. By the looks of the crowd we'd better stand up here to look for forty-eighters. Speak- ing of angels, here comes Ann Heaphy with a dozen red roses. Whose garden did you raid on the way down, Ann?" "Why, I own my own experimental Floral Gardens -my 'Buds' are beautifull Our best customer is Rosemarie Dalton, owner of the exclusive West Balm Beach Hotel, 'The Railroad Viewf " "Enough of sunny California, the Lone Star State will not be alone for long. Take care of the buds, Ann, see you again soon." "Ieanne, it's beginning to pour. Good old sunny Californial We should send a letter of complaint to Mary lane O'Malley, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce. lt will be one more piece of mail to add to her 'stacks' " "lt shouldn't be long now before we're passing ll5 cowboys. Speaking of cowboys, Liz, l heard that Eleanor Shea and her horse, Spinoza, are starring in El Ranch Recko Rodeo at El Paso, ousting Gene Autry." "Next stop, Houston." "Look out the window, leanne. There's Carol Mc- Coart Stiehl and her husband, Soxo. Hi, Carol, step aboard and reminiscef' "We can only stay a minute. Since Soxo has been appointed President of the University of Texas we've had no time to ourselves. l told my eight boys we'd be back as soon as possible. Dr. Ellie Shea, head of the English Department, has installed a new course, 'The Gruesome Comedy.' The Spanish De- partment draws students from all parts of the world. Lorraine DesRosiers, Department Supervisor, has discovered that students from Worcester, Mass., have the best accent. Thank heavens, the Worcester ac- cent has at last been classified." A puff of smoke, a grinding of the axles, and the wide open spaces of Texas are fading in the distance. "l wonder what kind of reception we'll get back home. Mary Lou Kleindienst and Mary Ellen Lynch are heartbroken because they can't be there. The North and South Poles now claim them for their own. They each have their own school, the one up north is named, 'Ugh, Ugh' while down south the other bears the title of 'Ugh, Ugh, you all.' " "Ieanne, look at that huge dirigible. l can't quite make out what the tail sign says. "Why, Liz, it's advertising McMahon Washing Ma- chines. Mary must have missed a senior religion class." "Last stop - Springfield - all off." "What a celebration-balloons, horns, confetti, isn't it exciting? Listen, Mrs. Phelan is making a speech on the platform." "As a result of good relations set up between BC. and the Elms at the Spring Concert of l948, Boston College has requested that the Elms Train be set on their campus as an historical novelty. Mrs. Anna Mae Courchen as president of the Elms Alumnae As- sociation has agreed to such a plan."

The one clear thing revolving through our oh-so-tired minds is the resonant voice of our Reverend Bishop as he delivered his vital message: "lt would ieeri that today the whole world is rushing headlong into chaos, and no one can deny that all this grotesque, barbarous catastrophe is but the logical con- sequence of the materialistic, godless education that thinks only of stuffing a mans head with facts, making him a member of the animal kingdom of the world, and still believing that he will make progress. The worth of the woman of tomorrow is to be found not so much in study and learning and social work, these things will claini your time and attention -e but your true worth is to be found rather within yourself, in the high char- acter of your womanly life."
