Foreword Ioy here on earth is based on the closeness of our wills to the will of God. Throughout our four years here, every activity has been determined by its ability to bring about this ultimate end. Day by day our classes, our devotions, and our social activities have brought us closer to our goal. Qur Lady of the Elms, in imparting this contentment of spirit, has given us also the assurf ance of time well spent. The hours have been both happy ones and serious ones, a mixture of parties, proms and preparations for the future lives to be rounded out by this education for which we'll always be thankful. But the complete realization of these joys does not come with Graduation Day - rather it grows and matures until, recalling days here on campus, we shall see clearly that this portion of our lives has been one very dear. lt has been a portion seasoned with goodness, kindness, and friendship, a porf tion sprinkled with mistakes and misfortunes, but embodied with serenity and finite perfection. lt is here, in Elmata, that we shall lock up our fond memories and keep them well guarded within its green and gold covers. And upon envisioning our college days these joys will crowd into our hearts. We'll smile, we'll brush away a tear, and we'll thank Our Lady of the Elms.

The force of your determinaf tion has not only presented this gift to us but has provided us, in the course of four years, with the inf describable joys attained when friends can live, work and play together. The beauty of building, of learnf ing and of living which surrounds us here has def lighted and enriched us but we know that, lacking your guiding hand, all of this would not have been ours. As Founder and President of our college you have placed everything within our easy reach. And so now, as we pass from the goldenfhued college days, we turn back once more to express our genuine gratif tude to you for making our college life a reality. acult YOUR PARTICULAR GIFT to the class of 1949 has been knowledge. You have diligently presented by lecture and demonstration the facts which we, your students, shall convert into wisdom. Now, as we step lightly forth to a new and different life, it is upon this wisdom that we shall depend. No other Faculty could have been more cheerfully generous or more genuinely fair. No other Faculty could have enlightened us more brightly. Therefore, as we murf mur our joyous farewells, we acknowledge your wisdom and your patience, your sincerity and your thoughtfulness. And our joy is more complete for we are confident that even after graduation you will always be ready with the habitual gentle word for us, with the nod of encouragement and praise, with tolerance and understanding.

S' Xiu-5 with good example. This joy must dwell always within the heart of every Sister of Saint Ioseph here on campus for, have you ever known a more willing, a more def pendable group? They are women donatf ing their services not for temporal rewards vw. but for the greater goal of spiritual sancf tiication. Day by day they have watched us grow physically and mentally. Now we are prepared, encased in the armor of moral strength, fortiied with goodness and happiness, to defend their lessons and to depend upon them for strength. lf we were to ascribe our formula for the sure attainment of infinite joy hereafter we would enumerate the qualities of our Sisters and suggest that they be followed. For nowhere else will such an essentially happy community be found, one so revered yet one so humble. Since we have accepted every' thing from you, our Sisters, we should return a worthy gift. But to offer material rewards would be folly and so here, when upon the brink of departure, we present our only gift, our prayers. Never to forget you, always to remember you in our devotions, to constantly intercede in your behalf, these are our bequests. these make up our spiritual estate, these we gladly give to you and the while, asking God above to keep you with Him now and always. .. i likxixxh' Y ,, - 1 X..

But all too frequently, in our times of happiness, we forget those gn who have made all of this possible. Had it not been for their sacrifices, their assistf , i f '2" ance, and their prayers, how far would l"' we have come? Could we have answered 'ggfsgleli' ,f to the name of Graduate? Could we have 5 'ilk'-ng V "tii V known and loved and cherished our colf 'iii Ev ii 'illi Wil A 5 'fi 5, lifiit lege days? To these two dear people we owe so much, a debt of love, of happiness, of education. Therefore, from the deepest and furthermost recesses of our happy hearts, we utter a humble "Thank you." It echoes and refechoes through the pages of this yearbook until, in clear and defiant print, it finds its way to you, our parents, whose days and nights are filled with thoughts and plans for us, whose every action receives its impetus from love of us. For, now on the brink of Graduation Day, filled with joy, we realize that in each joyous blessing there's a sense of gratitude. It may be dorf mant but it nevertheless is there and should be expressed. So here on this page, dedicated to our parents, we give you our best, and that best of ours is only meager remuneration for your best, so freely given and so calmly received. i2ll Campu THE WELL'WORN PATHwAYs from Cleary to the Administration Building, the Chapel and the Grotto have witnessed many a traveler in these past four years. They've felt us hurrying to class, tripping gayly to a dance, and marching in solemn procession to the tune of "Pomp and Circumstancef' But these are only pathways. The buildings themselves have encircled us and kept us warm in their grasp. Perf sonification is radiated in their studied silence during exams, their meditative silence during retreat. They have rocked with gaiety at Christmas time and prom time. But mere pictures of these edifices hold little charm. It is the feeling of joy and contentment emaf nating from their walls which reaches out and draws us to them filling us with the joy that we have grown in stature and in strength while within their loving arms. 2fr:'i.-we 2 "Heaven prosper it! may peace ancl love, And hope, and consolation fall, Through its meek influence from above, And penetrate the hearts of allg All who, around the hallowed fane, Shall sojourn in this fair clomainf' X231 li If' .. x .. ,..+9fQ. .

But few are the ones remaining which we can entitle "college days." Too few are the moments we can spend together, too few the smiles we can share. In happiness we arrived here four years ago but soon we leave in exalted joy for we have treasured every radiant beam of happif ness, 'til now, our hearts are vaults of joy. To think of each other is to be happy. To see each other is to relive our life on campus. In four short years of classes, vacations, and exams we've never known dis' cord or discontent. Uur one desire for each of us is that she might live on in a continuing spirit of well' being radiating peace, good fortune and true joy.

Rnsvne mmf CS fzfayzyf GAUDEAlXlUSl The day is here, the day we have waited for, our day of joy - com' meneement day for the class of 5.1.9. Did the poet Lowell have us in mind when he wrote, "What is so rare as a day in June?" Ur could we, without presumption, amend his quesf tion by asking, "What is so rare as this day in june, this day of our gradf uation from our beloved Lady of the Elms?" Today we go out from these walls that for us are hallowed by four years of joyful striving, our tasks of the moment done. Away from our class, one from the other, some of E451 us may never meet again this side of heaven. Away from our cherished teach' ers to whose unselfish devotion we owe so muchg away from our morning risf ings, away from our busy days and nights of study, away from our hours of playg it cannot be that we are natural if we fail to find, welling up from the depths of our sentient hearts, a pang of sorrow that all of these things are over for us as a class of graduates. But we came here in joy, have joy' fully tackled our pursuits, and why should we not, in a continuing spirit of joy, enter upon and play our part in the glories of this meaningful day? Much, oh so much of our life at the Elms will be proudly placed in the file of our tender memories. First of all, our associations with our teachers, classmates and college mates, our classes with their tests and examinations - but apart from these in the Golden Treasury of Remembrances, which includes so many of the activities of our senior year, comes first Initiation - Did we do this? Did we forget ourselves because, forsooth, custom has called us seniors? Did we make admirals of ourselves and stand RUTH A. MURPHY President officiously over the humble freshmen, the swabbies of our decks? No, no. lt was all in fun. And they knew it. And it drew them closer to us and us to them. And then, Cap and Gown Sunday - How y princely we marched with measured tread, our looks supreme, our words un' said! Maybe we did feel that sense of superiority! but Ilm sure our hearts were right, for again, custom hath ordered it. Spare us dear undergrads. Youlll wear them too, and like it . . . Qur sense of joy seemed to reign absolute when sucf cess crowned our humble efforts at the Elmata Dance - which witnessed seniors and underclassmen furthering the cause of wholesome entertainment and helping the seniors' personal college diary . . . and where they usually come Vice,p,esfdem LOUISE M. PIANNA H61 e seee s e The Familiar BluefBooks - But soon again, renewed with courage, and ref plenished with a stronger determination than ever before, we resolved to meet each forthcoming situation of the New Year with masterly attack. Cn a bright' er note, we anxiously awaited another festive occasion-one with a promise of surprise - for little did we guess that on that "night of cloudless climes and starry skies," we would suddenly find ourselves in a great magic "Wi1iter Woi1derland" - at the Junior Prom. The magic of the winter slowly faded BEATRICE V' BARRETT out and "as the swift seasons roll," we Sefffffm embarked upon the springtime of com' mencement which introduced the joint Clee Club Concert with Boston College, the important selffevaluation and challenge to a better life prof voked by our Spiritual Retreat, and those occasions when we daughters paid tribute in a special way to our parents at the FatherfDaughter and MotherfDaughter banquets. Ch yes, we have parents, and we love them. To see us frolic and cavort at times, to gab and chatter, you might be led to think that we had none - that we "just growedu like Topsy. Ch yes, we have parents. And we thank them for their kindness. May God bless them ever! With this prayerful supplication, we enrich our store of tender Remembrances and seal our Golden Treasury. Let us not leave on a note of sadness, "sweet sorrow though our parting bevz but on that more exalting note of joy that we have sat at the foot of goodness and learning and knowledge and are firmly resolved to reflect these things throughout our lives in rugged accord' ance with our true principles. As each of the class of 549 goes out today from these hallowed walls, she walks away with Hrm step and head erect, with a smile on her face and a song in her heart. MARILYN M. LOGAN Our Lady of the Elms, Gaudemus! Treasurer i471 ap and Gown Sunda To pass from a fleecy realm of dream and pos' sibility to an actual state of reality was the blissful fate of every senior on that sunkissed Sunday, late in October, the feast of Christ the King. The longfawaited moment which seemed almost unattainf able at times was fast becoming perfected, the ref ceiving of our Cap and Gown. Curs was an unboundless joy as we raised our hopes, our thanksgivings, and our petitions to the altar of God in the symbol of our caps and gowns that Sunday morning. Curs was a happiness that overflowed our very hearts as we knelt in all humf bleness before a most Radiant Savior in the greatest of all sacrifices. The beauty of the mornings ceremonies was only transcended by the solemnity of the afternoons, and a deep feeling permeated every seniors heart. In the midst of our loved ones, our parents, friends and classmates, we donned our caps and gowns and the realization of three years and perhaps a lifetime was beginning to take on a more tangible aspect. With the donning of our academic caps and gowns, we, in the words of Father Sullivan's most meaning' ful speech, were also to don our gowns of responsif bility, our garb of preparedness and, climactically, our robes of an educated Catholic woman. As each member of the Class of Q49 sat, intensely earnest upon the so prophetic words which were being issued forth, we envisioned our day of going out, for this day, this Cap and Gown Sunday was but a mere foreshadowing of the sadness and elo' quence of graduation day. Meanwhile, anticipating this future day we were implored to fill our hearts, our minds, our souls to the very brim, to drink deep of the fountain of truth which was in our very midst. And in carry' ing out this task especially in the full year ahead of us, as dignified wearers of those so cherished caps and gowns, we should be ever mindful of the responsibilities conferred upon us with their investi' ture. And finally, as we marched through that smiling guard of honor, to the waiting smiles and tears of parents and friends we could not help but think, each one of us, that we would soon and, all too soon, march through the smiling protective walls of our Alma Mater into the waiting arms of a not too happy world. fl- rivst "Crmtate Domino canticum novumn 548 I ELIZABETH A.

Classes IUNIORS so jolly, sophomores so gay, freshmen so verdant, all are our friends. Most of you we've known some length of time, the others have come to us only this year. In your eyes we've read your pleasure, in your voices we've heard your acclaim. Through the halls of O'Leary and the rooms of the Administration Building beaming faces have greeted us at every turn. We'll miss the salutations but we're glad we'll have them as cherished tidfbits to rememf ber. Your friendship is a jewel too precious to be lost. We marvel at its brilliancy, its spectrumftinted prisms reflecting the joys of having known such friends. As we leave, with your cheering words and vibrant voices ringing in our ears, we sigh wistfully for we'll miss you, dearest friends. 6.1 !4x4 Dearest friends!

What junior will ever forget that memorable Sunday morning when we slipped on for the first time our longfawaited and everftofbef cherished class rin our Tourmalines? Even now X . I can see each facet of the stone's green depths ref fleeting, as from glowing green coals, the inward glow of each heart, the pride, faith, loyalty, love for the stone and for the school it represents. Looking back, seeing again each face, I wonder what could be so dear to the heart of a junior as the Tour' maline. What so clear to our hearts? The answer may be in the strains of another selection from the album . . . "Dear frosh we love you so, And even though we can't say it The words are in our hearts." Q W Q' 51033 EJ- f-. 1, r.. pa-I6 , ',.,,,,fr f -,J.. A The dear, verdant freshmen were dear to our hearts even from that first day at the Elms when we sang to our sister class. How we pitied, in a laugh' ing manner, their initiation adventures! How proud we were on Elms Night to have our own special "frosh" sisters! How happy we were at the junior' Freshman Tea, the Hrst formal gathering of our two sister classes! How overwhelmed were we to realize that we were no longer the "little sisters"! We had "just growedu into upperclassmen, into "big sisters." To tell the truth, it was a surprise, but, oh how we loved it! Another record-an oldie this, but reminiscent of a new experience for the juniors. mln the little red schoolhouse . . . We were back in that little red building, not as the Nlongfsuffering pupil, but very proper teacher to be. Observations were in full swing and the eager members of Education I were gradually coming to the realization that this learned profession of teach' ing was far from being the "last" thing in "soft" jobs. Qbserving had taught us that problem chilf dren were not the teacher's excuse, but they actuf ally were members of this human race, and that the "old crab" who not too many years ago was the frequent cause of our complaints, really had her reasons. Despite this new knowledge we were im' bibing, our tune began to change to "So Tired" as we thought of next year and its dreaded practice teaching. A click of the phonograph, a lilting melody, an' other memory, we're dancing in a . , . "Winter Wonderland" Have you ever wanted to walk into a picture postcard? The juniors danced into one the night of their junior Prom. Mister Snowman, tall and towering in his snowy coat and his very distinctive red nose, was there to greet each and every one It was truly a wonderland of scenic beauty, en' hanced by multifcolored snowflakes, glistening snow, foamy, angelflike clouds, all reflected by soft lights. The music? What more can be said than that it was the finishing touch, the last stroke of the brush in the creation of a masterpiece. Our Winter Won' derland was to us a thing of beauty and it will remain a joy forever in the heart of every junior. "Father Time is a crafty man And he's set in his ways, We know that we never can Make him bring back past daysfi Commencement Week came again, taking with it another class of seniors. This time it was that class that we had known longest, that class just ahead. Yes, we had known them longest, entered into keen competition with them, laughed and sometimes cried with them. All these memories came flitting back as we carried the daisy chain on Class Day. Watching them plant their tree we went back in memory to our freshman year when they were the carefree sophomores, then their "best year" as the jolly juniors, and now this their final year. Whenever we see their special tree we'll think back to our daisy chain and our thoughts of that day. We'll all miss them for we all "like to be with you." And so we reach the last record in our album of junior mem- ories. What other could it be but, i i "Memories memories . , M.-xRiLYN R.

Trainor Sophomore Showboat "The good' 657240 efopbomoren Amid gay, nonchalant confusion, echoing over rippling blue waters, the "Good Ship Sophomore" steamed into her home port on September fourteenth. Snowy whitecaps splashed merrily along her shim' mering sides adding to the gaiety on board. Disemf barking from this gallant ship were scores of sophof mores bubbling with enthusiasm and trying to dis' play an "oldtimers" attitude to unsuspecting freshf men at Registration. During Initiation Week the freshmen, under the close surveillance of the second year men, served their apprenticeship at the "Naval Academy" for that day, soon in coming, when they will man the sails of the "Good Ship Sophomore." Surviving the invasion of the "gobs," we soon found ourselves at the Halloween Party and our presentation of "All That Glitters."

The gates of the heautiful College of Our Lady of the Elms open wide to wel' come the widefeyed, traditionally-verdant freshmen. A few stammered introductions, some hrave attempts at conversation, the joy of meeting Mziry who knew your cousin Pat in the eighth grade: thus passes the first day, College activities hegin in earnest on the following day as schedules are made Out and roommates hecome fast friends setting out to ex' plore the new situation as a unit. A warm welcome is extended to the Frosh hy their upperclassmen at friendly pajama parties. The Mziss of the Holy Ghost adds the indispensahle spiritual touch to the scene. Scene 2. A little sun, a little rain Havoc takes hold of our campus. "Dignilied" seniors hecome cruel taslcmasters in their roles of "Admirals," while the poor "Swahhie" freshmen suffer the plight of their lowly state in life. Duffle hags, hlack stockings, sailor hats. and endless orders to he carried out, fill the lives of the hustling new' comers for a week. Through the corridors such up' lifting passages as "Blessed is the Swah that walketh not within the limits of this reservation . . ring in the ears of the Elmites. Everyone thoroughly enjoys the proceedings with ahout one hundred pos' sihle exceptions, who already are planning their day of revenge for that wonderful week four years in the future. Elms night at last arrives and the Swahhies show their true sportsmanship, Everything ends happily, for that night the freshmen hecome 'acquainted with their incomparahle junior sisters. Scene 3. Content we live The stage is filled with husy, active students. The new class gets a view of the more serious side of JIIZJ 1-ui un: lxuflf Foley, H. Menard, P. Hogan, M. Nelligan, C. Murphy, M.

Latin, math, English, chemistry . . . an endless stream of assignments hurries along the crisp, fall days. But lessons do not claim undivided attention, for the freshmen stop and gaze with awe at the seniors who have been presented with those all-important caps and gowns. Hearts become light as the night of the Barn Dance approaches. Their first social event at O. L. E., and how the girls look forward to it! It is hard to tell which is more fun, the dance itself or the talks that go on in the rooms after "lights out." Scene 4. There's more blue in the sky than clouds Another social event on the calendar. The bef loved juniors invite their freshmen sisters to a tea. How grownfup the freshmen feel to go out with their sister class! A cloud passes over the setting: the dreaded quarterly exams approach. What will they be like? Are college exams really as hard as they say? But as all things pass, so do they fthe exams, that isj. As a pleasant aftermath, the Frosh again don their Sunday best and step out again to the exciting Elmata. How lovely they all look! Suddenly the stage is deserted, and only a few fore gotten articles remain as our class rushes off for that wonderful Thanksgiving vacation. ACT II. The Best Is Yet To Come Scene 1. Better than all the treasures that in books are found Celestial music is heard in the background. The freshmen dedicate themselves to Our Lady in her sodality and make a solemn promise. Then come the glow, the thrill, and the joy that always accom' pany the preparations for the Christmas season. "Hark the Herald Angels sing . . but not one bit sweeter than the Clee Club at the first, unforf gettable Christmas party. See how realistic the page eant is as three freshmen take the roles of Mary, joseph and a King. The lights are dimmed and a few candles flicker as the traditional hymns arise and fill O'Leary Hall with their melodies. The stage is once again empty as all the players head homeward for the holiday of holidays. riisi .. 'D .y url, . 'yr ix Q. W ' .31 1 . -H' ' 1 Scene 2. Beauty is truth, truth is beauty Back again and ready for work . . . and work it is, for the time of midfyear exams has arrived. Silence reigns in the houses as the Frosh diligently pore over their lessons, rewarded we are sure, with nice high grades. Whats that rustling in the air? Why those are the plans for the magical Junior Prom. Soft lights prevail in the College gym, dec' orated beyond recognition fa wintry fairylandj, and the rustling returns, but this time it is the rustling of billowing, formal skirts. "What beauty dwelleth here!" Two Frosh step out of formals and don basketball uniforms for the honor of O. L. E., while the rest of the class holds its own in intramurals. Scene 3. What wondrous life is this we lead Night after night the auditorium resounds with excitement . . . "I Remember Mama," Father Con- nolly's lecture on Francis Thompson. the Fashion Show, the Mardi Gras: the Elmites are caught in a whirl of activities. A calmness passes over the scene, however: Lent has begun. Homework assign' ments become more complete since movies have been forsaken on weekendsg now more food is devoured at meals as a result of the omission of midfmorning snacks, and a time for penance and prayer is obf served. Masculine voices are heard on campus again as the Fathers appear for the longfawaited Fatherf Daughter Banquet. The freshmen proudly show them around and remember that it wasn't too long ago when Dad had to look for the Registrar's office for them. Scene 4. But somewhere is a shining star Now comes the final sweep, the rush leading to the magnificent Commencement Week. The Boston College-Elms concert, the Mother-Daughter Tea, the Spring Formal, Final Exams and Hnally the day of days, Graduation. There are tears in the eyes of seniors as they leave, and there are tears in the eyes of the freshmen as they watch their cherished upperclassmen pass into "the wide, wide world." Summer vacation has arrived, a wonderful prospect, yet the Frosh look back wistfully at the days which have sped by so terribly . fast. No longer "green" freshmen. they have passed from the wings into the full glow of the college spotlight. But as the curtains begin to close they look back with a little bit of envy at the oncoming Frosh. One can hear them say- ing. "Being a Freshman was rather wonderful. wasn't it?" " 'WN .

Weren't those debates exciting? Thus run the comments of the yearis activities. They have been an outlet for tal' ents, the medium whereby energies and efficiencies have been put to practical use. College life would not have been so full of sunshine and laughter were we not also interested in the joyous pursuits of makf ing a success of a play. or a science meeting some' thing really different.

AIIJICQHN joAN M. SHEA Vicefprefect Treuszwer C.-xRoL gl. KNICSHT TVIARY T. IVIARTIN Rating high among the most eflicient and active clubs on campus is the Sodality of Qur Lady under the guiding rule of our Prefect, Elizabeth Aidicon. The aim of the Sodality is to spread on campus a devotion to Qur Lady. This is achieved with the cooperation of the committees into which the Sodality is divided. Qur Lady's Committee has, this year, inf creased its elforts to make all Sodalists aware of the devotion which is Our Lady's due. Eleanor Barron, the chairman, has made the perpetual rosary into a really vital activity since now every halffhour heaven is be' seiged by Elmites joined in prayer. The Liturgy Circle with its chairman, 51183 Marion Hoar, has brought fame to the Elms since she has obtained both the National and Regional Commissions on Liturgy for our college. The Circle has novv been converted into a pleasing and informational gathering of a large num' ber of Sodalists interested in the mean' ing and symbolism of the Mass. An' other important committee is one di' rected by the very capable Esther Hanf nigan - the Library Committee. At the meetings Catholic literature is reviewed and current best sellers are excitedly dis' cussed. To Esther and her committee goes a very vvarm vote of thanks for a beautiful and enjoyable cotfeefhour. Advent Cdvldlf The big moments of our last year as Sodalists can be accredited to the Social Committee. Its chairman, Shirley Leroy, and her committee memb:rs accomplished the ultimate of success at the Christmas Party complete with "Silent Night," Santa Claus, and presents galore. This pleasant mixture Venite, adoremus I: 119 3 of the holy and the hilarious is just as bright to us as the Star of Bethlehem. Stamps, Christmas presents for Negro children, entertainment for our Little Sisters, all this is within the realm of the Mission Committee and its untiring head, Rose Marie l.aMountain. hiany are the prayers oifered to heaven for the vvorks of charity performed in the name of the Misions here at the Elms. The soundingfboard of all the functions of the Sodality is the bulletin watched over by Mildred Zak and members of her Eucharistic Committee. Each day there is a nevv thought for us to consider, a timely reminder of meetings, rosaries to be said and vigils to be kept. NVhile of artistic value this correlation of activities likewise impresses upon us gently the duties of a true Sodalist. The Advisory Board, made up of representatives of each class, has the duty of electing committee members and nominating Sodalists to be pref sented before the Sodality members for election as chairmen of various functions. At the end of the year they also nominate candidates for officers for the ensuing year. Long in the memory of our college days will be the beauty and joy of spirit which vve've knovvn as loyal members of the Sodality.

HOAR The National Federation of Catholic College Students again assumed a very active role in our activities. Mary Murray, Senior Delegate, and Barbara Garde, Junior Delegate, conducted monthly meetings. For a major project on our campus this year the N. F. C. C. S. continued its Work with the Student Relief Campaign. Numerous activities were fl2lj initiated to strengthen the financial aspect of this program. In Cctober a barn dance was held for the first time and proved most successful. Weekly raflles were conducted during the year under the auspices of the respective classes. Cn january 16 a Piano Recital by Richard Ziter, Senior Student at Eastman School of Music, netted a substantial sum for the fund. Cnce more the everfpopular fashion show was held. Financially, the campaign was a terrific success. The intellectual aspect of the campaign was provided for by the establishment of foreign correspondence between us and students in European and South American countries. Prayers offered for student relief completed the Campaign with its spiritual aspect. Cur Lady of the Elms received late last year the National Liturgy Com' mission. Marion Hoar and Pauline Skerry, cofchairmen, presided over a Liturgical Weekend held here in November. Delegates from various New England colleges attended. Semifmonthly meetings of the Liturgy Circle were held: monthly circulars were sent out to all member colleges. RAPfRadio Acceptance Poll found itself again with us and this much' publicized campaign of last year reached even greater heights. This year an attempt was made to familiarize the student with the work of all the commissions by means of daily meetings conducted on the respecf tive commissions. Delegates attended the Regional Congress held in Boston in April and the National Congress at Chicago in May. -Si 'L "Bless us, oh Lord, and these Thy gifts . . .

For who among us could ever forget the outstanding production "I Remember Mama" - the highlight of the l48',4Q season. Many stars were to be found in such a cast of girls so ably assisted for the first time in Verdeoro's career by the Chicopee Community Players. Not to be credited with a single performance, our dramatists enthusif astically donated their time to bring many successes to our stage and to grace the stages in Worcester and Boston. Because of their interest in this 51231 field of art sacriiices were made in order that Verdeoro in correlation with other colleges in this area might share in spreading the Catholic Dramatic lvlovement. NVe were the fortunate ones when, in order to stimulate interest in Verf deoro, a series of onefact plays were presented for our approval. The result - both audience and club were well rewarded. The year would not be complete without the presentation of the tradif tional passion play during the Lenten Season. Simplicity and depth in this play were strong influences on our student critics. And not to be outdone, Verdeoro sought some share in Commencement Week. Hence she sponsored the yearly play competition, and to the win' ner - a grand trophy symbolic of their contribution to Verdeoro. + f " ai' M- D "Mama" - "Iss goof' I 1241 G ee Club President Secretary MARION T. IVIEEHAN ELIZABETH A. FLYNN VicefPresident Treasurer ANN T. IVICNAMEE JOAN M. WILLISTLUN With a sublime blend of harmonious voices, with exquisite shading and mellow tone, our Glee Club has become on campus an expression of our love of all things aesthetic. Such perfect cofordination and feeling come as the result of much labor and a deep love of singing on the part of each member. Qur joys of the Christmastide ascended heavenfvvard through the medium of resounding carols. As is customary, the songsters presented their Na' 51253 tivity selections at various churches and Women's Clubs in the vicinity of the college. One of the unprecedented and most pleasurable events on the Glee Club's calendar was the trip to Providence College. There, in a most cor' dial atmosphere, a concert was given whose excellence would be difficult to surpass. The memories of this concert will be tucked away and cherished by all Glee Club members. "Old friends are best friends" is a phrase that can be well applied to our concert with the Boston College Glee Club. Something done well in the past is anticipated with a certain measure of expectation and it was with this feeling that another huge success was produced. The beauty and harmony of the girls in delicate pastels was surmounted only by the beauty and harmony of the tones and interpretation given by the two Clee Clubs. Bravos from a most enthusiastic audience reached skyward, acclaiming the magnificence of the evening. Last in the order but certainly not last in importance is the offering of our sincere and heartfelt appreciation to Marion, the Clee Club's most capable director and to Anna, the talented and inspiring accompanist. Under their guiding hands the above performances of excellence were made a reality. Providence Collegeflms Concert I: l26 :I Athletic Club President Secretary NANCY M. BLACK JOANN S. AKEY VicefPresident Treasurer PATRICIA A. TIERNEH' MARY E. MALoY The most active Club on campus, literally speaking, is our Athletic Assof ciation for it offers to all a variety of physical encounters in which to inf dulge excess energy. For many years a favorite club with all classes, the association this year has been no exception. A large membership and enthusiastic spirit have been its outstanding features. Always contributing much to campus life, the Athletic Club this year made one of its greatest advances in the form of a successful varsity basketf ball team. The vvellfpicked team has been extremely fortunate in having as coach Miss Gloria Bisalleon. Her invaluable contributions to the sucf cess of the team are indeed praisevvorthy. During the season the varsity met among others, the teams of American International College, Mt. St. Mary's, and Clark University. Also deserving of mention here in regard to basketball are the intramurals when each class puts forth its best in the hope of gaining the esteemed cup. Another novel idea was carried out in October when a picnic was held 51273 at King Philips Stockade in Forest Park. Hot dogs, sodas, and the usual picnic "iixin's" were enjoyed by all. Throughout the year, contests were held in various sports. Each month found a particular sport holding the limelight. Included here were pingf pong, volleyball, badminton, horsebackfriding, and bowling. Spring added new sports to this as softball and tennis made their appear' ance on the slate. That refreshing season also added an item of special interest to Association members, for it was in spring that the annual tea dance was held. Dancing and refreshments were the principal events at this affair. Ascension Thursday brought a new and exciting happening - the club's Field Day. At this time playfoifs were held in softball and tennis: various other races and contests were held to the delight of all spectators. The final affair of the club was as always the banquet held during Commencement W'eek. At this time the coveted "Es" and other awards were presented to those who had fulfilled the necessary requirements. A sumptuous spread and genuine goodfwill characterized this final gathering of the athleticallyfinclined. Such an organization as this can always be relied upon to help build the feeling of good sportsmanship and clean living that is so much a part of our college life. Training the body simultaneously with the training of heart and mind, the Athletic Association has made an excellent and in' valuable contribution to our college life.

IVIURRAY CLARE A. MCDONNELL The Mother John Berchman's Debating Society has for many years worked to foster an interest in forensic activities on campus through panels, informal discussions and formal debates. It thus combines an opportunity for public expression with an interest in current and widelyfdivergent problems. This past year has seen a smaller but more active group carrying out a successful year's program by arranging intrafmural as well as interfcol' legiate debates. 51203 The varsity debating team matched wits with many formidable oppo' nents. Following its customary policy of negative debates away and aflirmaf tive at home the interfcollegiate team debated the question - Resolved: The federal government should adopt a policy of equalizing educational opportunity in taxfsupported schools by means of annual grants. Among the colleges with which this was debated were Boston College, Holy Cross, Albertus Magnus, Amherst, and Saint Michaelis. In these interfcollegiate debates O. L. E. initiated several nonfdecision debates. The ensuing loss of some of the doforfdie spirit was well compensated for by a more fervent but less formalized debate. Bingo and Bridge parties seem scarcely activities proper to a debating society but the versatile members sponsored both very successfully. The proceeds augmented the traveling fund. The highlight of the intrafmural debates was the Riordan award comf petition. The question discussed was - Resolved that the federal govern' ment should establish a system of national compulsory health insurance. Those participating were Louise Hanna, Mildred Zak, Maureen Keating and Clare McDonnell. AmherstfElms Debate I: l3O :I International Relations Club President Secretary MAUREEN M. KEATING MARY RUTH SPRING VicefPresident Treasitrer JACQUELINE A. DENT IVIARY A. IVIERRIGAN For those students interested in world affairs the International Relations Club ollfers an opportunity to express and exchange ideas and solutions of the most momentous puzzle of international problems today. At a time when so much planning for the future is being done, the experiences of the past should be taken into consideration. Qnly by studying the present in the light of the past can we hope to understand the future. A group of Catholic college students, we considered world problems in the light of Christian principles. 51313 The I. R. C. is aililiated with the New England Catholic Student Peace Federation, the Carnegie Institute for International Peace and the National Commission on International Relations of the National Federation of Cathof lic College Students. During this past year the I. R. C. has been very active in the N. E. C. S. P. F. in which it held the second vicefpresidency. This office was capa' bly filled by Mary Coggin 549. At the annual convention held this year at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Elms was in charge of four panels. The theme of the convention was "Security in the Christian World." The four panels were based on the four fields considered so vital by Father Keller, namely, labor, education, government and communications. Among representatives from C. L. E. were Jacqueline Dent 'io who spoke on "B R. P. as a Bond in VVorld Aiiairsv and Maureen Keating '49 whose topic was "The U. N. in the Solution of World Problems." Among the other activities which proved worthfwhile was a meeting of the Central Region of the N. E. C. S. P. F. to which the Elms played host. The topic was the proposed Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the informal discussion brought forth many novel ideas. ' 'Y I 'N -4, 'A .' - I N I . ' 'I sa ....

IVIACDONNELL With a world so steeped in the scientific approach and viewpoint, the activities of the Science Club are of the utmost importance to the girls who will embark upon this field of endeavor. This outlook, however, is tempered in the white light of Catholic truth and is seen as a means to our ultimate end and not an end in itself. The Science Club is an integral part of the extracurricular life that is being fostered on our campus. Within its folds are coordinated the interests of the various fields of 51333 physical science, biology, chemistry, physics, and each one is given its proper emphasis. Listed on its agenda were topics and discussions of appeal to all students of science. In one of the earlier meetings, Dr. Nazzaro presented to the members a talk on "Women's Place in the Scientific Field." He impressed upon these aspiring scientists their opportunities and to what extent they would be able to carry out their scientific training. At another meeting, the students themselves came to the fore and presented for the enlighten' ment of all, a symposium on the chemical aspect of photography and the methods used in its operations. An unusual event which transpired in the early spring was a trip to the Planetarium. Few of the club members present had had previously the opportunity to view such a display. Not only were all impressed by the sights seen, but they also were instructed and enlightened by the detailed explanation given by the curator. A close collaboration is maintained between the Science Club and A. C. S. All meetings of either club are opened to members of both clubs as is fitting because of their common ends - the advancement of science on our campus. Transferring cultures I 134 J American Chemical Society President Secretary MILDRED A. ZAK BARBARA A. EICHORN VicefPresz'dent Tretisurer IVIARY J. CONNELLY IVIICHAELYN E. MOYNIHAN The newest and one of the most popular clubs on campus is the American Chemical Society Student Affiliation. It is not merely a campus society but has a charter as an actual part of the National A. C. S. Every month its meetings have been spiced with speakers well versed in their knowledge of varying scientific fields. Dr. Holloway of Springfield College was the first to grace our Lounge as a speaker for our fledgling association. ln rapt attention we listened and gained much information about blood fractionation, the uses of each fraction and the inestimable 51353 facts regarding this vital tissue fluid. His presentation of difficult matter in a fashion that was comprehensible to undergraduates deserved and re' ceived just praise. Proteins and amino acids, complicated and exacting material, were pref sented informally on the night of the student symposium to an eager group of A. C. S. members. The "board of experts" was helped considerably by constructive comments interspersed by Drs. Gadaire and Nazzaro. The speaker for March, Robert Mosher, who colorfully presented his topic on plastics, added the point of view of the industrial chemist rather than that of the theoretical chemist. His treatment of this subject of general interest increased our desire to gain further knowledge of synthetic resins. As a variation, at the April meeting several former graduates came pref pared to pass on their experience in the various fields of practical chemistry. Control labs, chemical libraries, research labs, and chemical secretaries were all represented. A lively gathering of new and old friends presented a brighter light to be reflected in the radiant prisms of our senior year. A final word of praise should be given to our lay Faculty advisors whose assistance has been invaluable in establishing the nucleus of an active, prosperous, and educational club. They have given unselfishly of impor- tant hours so that we, of the Elms chapter of A. C. S., could be proud of our attempts to become scientists and further the cause of science on campus.

MARTIN Interest in the activities of Le Cercle Francais commenced with the open' ing business meeting of the year and continued to highlight the program of the succeeding months. Stressing as necessary the notes of enthusiasm and cooperation, many new members were induced to take an active part in the regular monthly meetings and gatherings. The affiliation of this group with the Springfield chapter of Les Dames Francaises added frequent moments of pleasure to an already active calenf H371 dar. Through this connection responsive listeners shared lectures delivered by wellfknown figures in the French world - while the conferences spon' sored by the Dames offered unlimited opportunities to an interested follow' ing. French films presented at the Museum of Fine Arts were further sources of inspiration for our linguistic enthusiasts. On the lighter vein, the members gathered together for an evening of cards and conversation, which proved one of the year's most successful events. Following along in a holiday mood, the joint Christmas party held in conjunction with the Spanish Club, was an innovation here on campus. Soft carols in foreign tongues came over the air and pageants were enacted for the general enjoyment. A soiree, featured during the latter months of the year, proved another opportunity for members to confer on problems and questions of the time, while furthering their fluency. Seeking a complete coverage of the latest happenings in French circles, we inevitably awaited the appearance of Les Chucotements des Crmes where students displayed their journalistic abilities. The variety of the club program enhanced the appeal of the belle langue de France. "Chantons encore . . . " I: 138 :I '-ani' a orte Castellana President Secretary ELEANOR J. BARRON HELENE T. BRADY Vicefpresident Treaszwcr IVIARY A. GGMALLEX' CLARA M. SAWTELLE Enthusiasm for things Castilian is very definitely bespoken by this year's Spanish Club. Composed entirely of students of this charming romance language, the club seeks to promote a greater fluency in the spoken Spanish word and a deeper appreciation of Spanish culture. The informal atmosf phere of the meetings induces the members to voice their ideas more freely and thereby increase their volubility in the Spanish tongue. 51393 At the first meeting of the club, we were extremely fortunate to have as our guest speaker Dr. Lillian Arab, a native of Cuba. In her native tongue, Dr. Arab described vividly and in detail the school system of her native country. A question period followed in which all members of the club took an active part and acquired a fund of pertinent data on Cuba and Cubans. "Reyes Magosu or the Epiphany found the club engaged in a special celebration as befits this very special Spanish feast day. Mademoiselles of the sister club on campus, Le Cercle Francais, were invited to join in these festivities. Beloved and timefhonored carols were sung with heart' felt enthusiasm, heightened by the setting of Christmas decorations, the nacimiento and the everfpopular refreshments. As a closing feature the members of the Freshman Spanish Group pref sented Zaragueta, the delightful comedy for the enjoyment of the corte. Under the direction of Lorraine Molter, the cast of characters displayed a dramatic as well as linguistic ability that amazed as well as delighted at the same time. 'iLa ensevianza en Cuba . . . H f 140 :I Spiritual Retreat 4fBe silent and listen.' REV. PAUL J. MURPHY, SJ. Retreat Master Precious moments, sacred thoughts, time set apart for introspection, heaven'sent graces, all these are threads embroidered in our pat' tern of retreat. How powerful, how soul' stirring were the words of our Retreat Mas' ter which inspired us to these sacred thoughts, which guided us to reflections of prime prin' ciples and directed our actions to greater sanctity. We can say so much but each girl, in the secret recesses of her soul, knows to what extent her thoughts and desires have been edified. She alone can describe the emo' tions aroused when Cut Lordis Passion and Death were so vividly retold and only God can know how efficacious her prayers have been. As each day rolled swiftly on and the re' treat came closer to an ending, a kinship, never there before, was established between each Elms girl and the next. We had com' municated with God, shared our hopes, our fears, our desires with Him. Each one of us now knew Cur Lord a little better and know' ing Him better, how can we help but love Him better? All of this introspection and close scrutiny of our spiritual life is accredited to the skill of Fr. Paul lvlurphy. His envied possession, a dynamic personality, was forcefully in' iected into his every word. So few others could have directed us on such a new ap' proach to our duties, nor could they have in' stilled in us the desire to remedy the slightest fault of character which we can recognize. lt is to Fr. Murphy our regeneration as better Catholic college students is due. His excel' lence is acclaimed, his ability revered. And then as days continued to slip past our grasp, and conferences dwindled to a pre' cious few the fragments of time pieced them' selves together to give an insurmountable, protective wall of holy thoughts and sacred sacrifices surrounding our minds and hearts so full of Christ Qur King. 51413 ectures Opening the lecture series during the fall was Rev. john Kennedy, literary critic of the Catholic Transcript. Fa' ther's discussion was centered on Graf ham Greene and included the Hner points of the latter's popular novel "The Heart of the Matter." Following the lecture some time was spent answering our many questions on this very popular book. Appropriate for the season of Advent WILLIAM H' MOORING Fr. Carol Bernhardt brought to the Auditorium an interesting and enlight' ening display of Madonnas in art. During his lecture Father enthusiastically pointed out the fine lines and detailed color structure so symbolic of Our Lady. Distinctions in the works of various nationalities were clarified. "Mary and the Qld Testament" was the subject of Father john Cesterf reicher. Father traced the stories of Esther, Ruth, Rebecca and Judith and explained their positions as precursors of Mary. Cn the literary side we received a deep insight and understanding of the character of "Francis Thompson, the Poet and the Man" from Father Terrence Connelly, librarian of Boston College. Father added to the basic facts from his personal experiences and acquaintance with the Meynells, close friends and patrons of Francis Thompson. The world's greatest authority on the English poet, Father Connelly increased our enthusiasm for the poet of "The Hound of Heaven." As the culminating point in our series, William Morring, wellfknown writer of a syndicated column spoke to us on the everftimely subject of the world on the screen. 51423 OHCC1' 'CS THE SILVERTONES During the month of November, Elmites enthusiastically welcomed the first concert of the year in the persons of the very talented "Silvertones." Composed of three men and an equal number of women, the group presented a varied program of familiar and beloved music. Ranging from the rollicking "Shortnin' Bread" to the impressive "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's "Messiah," the pro- gram submitted by this small but very capable group was warmly received by the entire student body. The initial enthusiasm for group selections was later superseded by intense interest in solo and duet numbers. Iiniversally acclaimed as a highlight of the evening was the beautiful duet rendition of Friml's "Indian Love Call." A novel note was added when Garfield Henry, director of the Tones, gave an exposition of the history of jazz. Interspersed with illustrations of the various types, his story of this phase of American music gave us all a much clearer idea and deeper appreciation of it. A fitting beginning indeed for this year's concerts was the enthralling program of music delicately and artisti- cally wove.n for us by the Negro singers, the "Silvertones." RICHARD ZITER Continuing our policy of "nothing but the best" we next welcomed the young pianist, Richard Ziter. A student at the Eastman School of Music, Mr. Ziter gave a thrilling performance, with all proceeds going to the European Student Relief Fund. Mr. Ziter portrayed with equal grace the varied moods and tempos of Chopin, Beethoven, and Bach. The peren- nial favorite "Clair de Lune" by Debussy was presented with a soft and delicate touch. In contrast to this Mr. Ziter showed his versatility by a deep and throbbing interpretation of the Castilian "Malaguena." Though a youthful pianist, Mr. Ziter performed with all the poise and artistry of a seasoned veteran, as such he made an immense contribution to our concert series. This is evidenced by the appreciative audience which greeted him at O. L. E. MARY J. MCMAHON AND BEDRICK VASKA Charming musical ability plus a disarming personality, thus we describe the gracious lady who enchanted us all, Miss Mary McMahon. An instructor of the voice, this talented singer gave us ample proof of her proficiency in that line. In a program containing such delightful favorites as "Panis Angelicus" and "O Dry Those Tears," Miss Mc- Mahon displayed extraordinary depth and tone. Also in- cluded were groups of Scottish and Irish songs, enhanced by appropriate attire. Another fine artist who appeared with Miss McMahon was Mr. Bedrick Vaska at the cello. In his solo selections as well as the numbers accompanying Miss McMahon, Mr. Vaska displayed a perfected style and interpretative ability. Together these artists presented a most enjoyable program, one which for its variation and beauty was warmly received by all. ,. ,. M., Niki , t S 's Q 'PGW' 1- f 4... A' A A' 1 IQ. wif K ' P. C.fO.

Although it appears only in quarterly issues, the Worth of it extends throughout every week of the year. As its name implies, this unassuming piece of literature is truly a precious stone: a stone, since each issue is a milestone marking a step toward our ultimate goal of graduation: pref cious, because of its content. With each sucf ceeding issue of the Tourmaline, we unconf sciously realize that we are coming closer to the end of our college days and with that realization comes a deeper understanding and appreciation of the thoughts contained there' in. We see it not merely as a magazine, but we see it rather as a labor of love, into which have been woven all the hidden emotions and feelings of its contributors. Here our "pen savantesm invest all their talent and the re' turns are certainly Worthfvvhile. This year found the Tourmaline with co' editors and the usual staff composed of jour' nalism students. Something new was added in the form of a very attractive light cover. As in other years, the Tourmaline is giving to the college the best in literature and thought: it is as always what its name sig' niiies, a gem.

MCDONNELL There's a certain day each month when suddenly you find each Elmite completely ab' sorbed by some mysterious piece of literature. Only an occasional gasp of surprise or pleas' ure breaks the unusual quiet. What is it that has this magic power of silencing the dorm even during recreation hour, you ask? It's the Elmscript, naturally! Yes, indeed, each month we greet with glee that very important piece of campus life, the Elmscript. A record of our successes and a review of college highlights, it is welcomed by all. Complete and accurate coverage of the news could well be adopted as its motto, as every noteworthy event is adeptly def scribed. The informal chitfchat and feature columns add a warm and personal touch. Thoughtfprovoking editorials and candid per' sonal opinions on pertinent topics make for further enjoyment, while the athleticallyf inclined are kept abreast of the sporting world. A truly delightful combination of sevf eral fine ingredients is our Elmscript. Propelled by its competent cofeditors, the staff consists of journalism students who are afforded an excellent outlet for their endeavf ors with the pen in this monthly publication. Elmscript this year is carrying on, in true Elms tradition, the fine presentations that last year merited AllfCatholic honors.

This year we are proud to have numbered among the members of the Alpha Kappa Chapter here on campus five of our classmates who, while rating very high schof lastically, have also been active in extra' curricular activities. Ruth Murphy, Marion Hoar, Mary Martin, Nadine Mangan, and Mary Coggin are this yearis student candi' dates. All of them have shown superior inf tellectual prowess and strong devotion to O. L. E. They have been most active in every phase of Catholic Action that college life afforded them. There were this year, also, two alumnae elected to the society, Miss Margaret T. Clifford and Sister Alice Fran' cis, both of the Charter Class of O. L. E. They were both outstanding as undergraduf ates and upon graduation they have been noted in fields of education and in the spread' ing of Christian principles. All too frequent' ly we lose sight of these principles in the rush of material affairs, and when a continuance of them is predominant and success in things material is secondary, then praise is truly just and honors well placed upon their shoulders. The candidates this year bespeak the honor of the Alpha Kappa Chapter and their fore' sight in electing such members to "set things in order." 51493 Alumnae "The present moves attended Vxfith all of brave and excellent and fair That made the old time splendid" KATHARINE M.

Membership in those ranks entails a tremendous responsif bility. For to whom much has been given, much will be expected. In a Catholic Col' lege we have received the necessary equip' ment to fulfill our purpose in life. Now is the time to use that equipment. At the present time there is a cold war waging between materialism and Christianity. On one side are the forces of truth, on the other, the forces of error. Materialism has insidiously crept into every walk of life,- materialism, which considers religion as a sort of trademark with which a person may be identified and morality as nothing more than acting in accordance with social approval. We have been imbued with the principles of truth. We cannot stand idly by and watch those principles attacked. We must join the army of the defenders of truth in the field of battle, for mapping our campaign is over, now is the time for action. The battles will be long and arduous but we must stand Hrm with the courage of our convictions. We must realize that Cur Su' preme Commander who recruited us in His defense will not fail us when we seem to be losing ground. If we persevere we will reap the reward at the end. We must continue to fight until the victory is wong until we can lay down our arms and truly say to our Divine Leader, "We have fought the good fightq we have kept the faith." gy if Class Day when '49 chained the daisies 51533 lass Will XVe, the Senior Class of nineteen hundred and forty- nine, at the close of four years of extensive study, having become old and heavily burdened with knowledge and wisdom, desire to pass on to the less wise and knowing our last will and testament.

The Senior Class of Our Lady of the Elms ,6fll'l'4llf' -WIT!! Class .elllornry f-:.f- --w--2' , ,li . ' ,,.- sig'-,-fun-1 I U' Commencement Week - today 51553 fass Troplzecy Elms Variety Elms Grads Have Backstage Reunion- New York, N. Y., June 7, 1959. Last eve' ning the class of 549 of the College of Cur Lady of the Elms met backstage at the St. james Theater where Broadway star, Nadine Mangan, was hostess to her classmates at a unique reunion. All members were present and the evening was heightened by enlighten' ing discussions of activities of the past decade. Congratulations were in order for Nadine for her superb performance in "Days of Tri' umph," which opened last night, and for Ellen Ford and Virginia Rooney who auf thored the play. Ruth Murphy, Nadine's agent, stated that the play will run for at least two years on the Great White Way. Eleanor Barron, looking chic as ever, told us of the phenomenal success she has had with her "School of Charm." Her salon on Fifth Ave' nue is right next door to "Coii'feur's Colosf sal" which is of course Beatrice Barrett's hair styling studio. With these two in New York is Betty Aidicon who is fast becoming Amer' ica's topmost fashion designer. The three share a swank penthouse apartment in the East Sixties with Betty Hamilton. Betty has become topflight model for Power's. She adorns the cover of all popular magazines. Speaking of models, Bitsey Merrigan could well be chosen as the model mother. She left her brood of six with Dad in North Adams to make the trip. Frances Haley, too, is marf ried and even though she is very busy with her three little ones she has found time to scribble off a best seller entitled "Left Cvers on Monday." She hasn't forgotten her "Marf riage Guidance" Course at the Elms. Shirley Cummings drove down in her deluxe stream' line Lincoln Continental from Massachusetts. She tells us that she recently sold her restauf rant "Southboro House-Meet and Eat," and invested all her capital in Dot Casey's midget Auto Racers. Peg Corrinet, Esther Hannigan and Margaret Nesbit made the trip down with Shirley. Esther and Peg are living in Boston. Esther Hnds her duties as State Representative stimulating indeed and Peg tells us that her position as head of the Math Dept. at M. I. T. is a wonderful experience. Nezzie who has been visiting Shirley has just published her fourth book on the art of skiing and has just recently returned from Sun Val' ley where she gleaned material for a fifth. Ably representing the class in college circles are Michaelyn Moynihan and Pat Connell. Both are full professors and are teaching at Massachusetts University. "Moynihan's Rules and Connell's Postulatesn have become household words. A Ph.D. too is Marion Hoar. Most of Marion's time is spent lecturf ing on Atomic Power. Also a lecturer is Maureen Keating. She is today considered an authority on world conditions. Maureen had her start as a star debater at the Elms. In the world of music Marion Meehan has found a place for herself. Her AllfGirl Cr' chestra and Chorus have toured the country several times and have met with great sucf cess. The organization is ably managed by Anne Jones. Successful too in the musical 51561 MOH, our song resounds with mirth .md clieern world are Mary Maloy and Rose Marie Laf Mountain. Mary is rehearsing now for the dancing lead in "Twinkle Toes." With her in the cast is Rose Marie who will sing the hit songs of the Show. Anna MacDonnell is still thrilling audiences with the renditions of "Malaguena" and "Ritual Fire Dance." She is appearing this week at Carnegie Hall. Rita Keough has conquered the field of lightfopera and is at present appearing in M. S. Pina' fore." A group of our Q49 Elmites have mar' ried and settled in the suburbs of Conn. Liz Flynn informs us that she is having servant trouble, but otherwise, she and her steel mag' nate husband are happy with their two lovely boys. Marie Lawler and Betty Ann Carlisle are next door neighbors in Stamford. The two girls and their respective spouses have a stand' ing Bridge date each Thursday evening. The Literary world too claims some of our class' mates. Everyone is familiar with the exquif site poems which come from the pen of Roe berta Morrier. Another author of some note is Frances Roscoe. We Hnd her essays, short stories and quatrains in many of our popular publications. In the field of journalism are Mary Martin and Marie Murphy. Mary aptly fills the position of associate editor for Time while Marie is the Holyoke Transcripts news editor. Irene Morin excells in her chosen profession as a commercial artist. Her magazine illustrations are quaint and charm' ing. Clara Sawtelle, Barbara Hurley and Norma Savoit tell us that business is boom' ing at "Interpreters, Inc." Their command of the romance languages is everywhere in demand. Mary Coggin is pleased with her position as Superintendent of Schools in Springfield. She is the first woman to have this honor and has completely revised the entire school system. Kathleen Martin in her capacity as Principal of Pittsfield High School has made her place in educational circles. Marilyn Logan shows not at all the strain of her duties as treasurer of the Third National Bank of Springfield. lt need not be said where Marilyn acquired her banking talents? lwfarf ried to a YVilliams professor and sparkling 51573 hostess at all house parties is Bette Pringle. When questioned about life at Williams Bette replies that she loves it. "Shy" Leroy and Helen Vecchia report that guests are pouring in to their resort hotel in the Berkf shires. "Shy" arranges social activities while Helen balances the books. "Millie" Zak and Ruth Spellman have chosen the field of Inf dustry, and wisely, too. "Millie" is head of Research at DuPont's largest plant and Ruth has a similar position at Monsanto. Louise Hanna and Clare Ryan have an exclusive dress shop in Springfield. These two petite Misses model their own originals. Patrons of the shop include many Elms girls, needless to say. Nancy Black is Bridal Consultant for a large department store in Worcester. Wedf ding attire has had a fascination for Nancy since she modeled for our Elms Fashion Shows. Personnel manager for the same store is Har' riet Goddard. She tells us that her courses in Ethics and Sociology at the Elms have aided her greatly in dealing with people from all walks of life. Last but not least is "Susie" Street. Susie reports that "Providence" has been very good to her. She and hubby have three bouncing boys, which is something for the Street family. The evening flew by and finally all '49ers said their goodbyes and departed, each carry' ing with her fond memories of a neverftofbe' forgotten meeting - one which brought with it a renewal of old and lasting friendships.
