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 MQST REVEREND THQMAS MARY CTLEARY, D.D
Bishop of Springfield
The class of 1949 proudly and sincerely dedicate
this yearbook to you, Your Excellency, because had
it not been for your beneficence in establishing our
school, a catholic college education might have been
denied to many of us. 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.
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.
Who art a light to guide, a rod
To check the erring and reproueg
Thou who art victory and law
When empty terrors overaweg
From 'uain temptations dost set freeg
And calm'st the weary strife of frail humanity

IT IS a great joy to give of oneself and
to see the recipient go forward amid dan'
KET ESQ gers, armed with moral strength, fortified
1-f! 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

JOY is AN allfencircling emotion. It
dwells in your heart and guides your ,
every action. 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,
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.
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
"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'

THESE DAYs are happy daysg time when friends are
made and knowledge gained. 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.
Te blessed creatures, I have heard the call
Te to each other inalqeg I see
The heavens laugh u'ith you in your jubilee:
My heart is at your festival,
My head hath its coronal,
The fulness of your bliss, I feel - I feel it all

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
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
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

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
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.

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'
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

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.
We all have IQTIOLUH such happy hours together,
That, were power granted to rephzee them ffetehed
From out the pensive shadows where they hej
In the frst warmth of their original stmshme,
Loth should I he to use it: passing sweet
Are the domains of tender memory."'

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

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

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.

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

"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." That nightg
our sophomore history really began as we for the

AUT I. Per aspera ad astra
Scene 1. So terrihly happy
The curtains part. 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
Foley, H. Menard, P. Hogan, M. Nelligan, C. Murphy, M. Moynihan, M. Murphy, T. Maney, B. Cendron
C McCarthy, M. Hayes, D. Murphy, C. Lucas, M. Hart, j. McGoldrick, M. Kennedy, K. Keating, E. Havicon, A. McElroy,
M Mahcney, K. Lynch, N. Harper, V. Gallagher, M. Healy, R. Nolan, R. M. Hickey, J. Holleran, B. Leahey, A. Cilwlmns,
college life . . . school work. 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
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.

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
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.

Do You REMEMBER the Elmata Dance of '49?
Wasnit the Fashion Show beautiful? 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. Not infrequently when en'
gaged in these activities, we have rejoiced because
we learned a new fact or expressed a new idea. ln
sweet reminiscence of these days. how can we forget,
how can we fail to smile! They have been days lined
with silver and tied with a bright bow of brilliant
The wealthy, the luxurious . . .
Shall laclq not their enjoyrnent: - but how faint
Compared with ours' who, pacing side by side,
Could, with an eye of leisure, loolq on all
That we beheldg and lend the listening sense
To every grateful sound of earth and airg
Pausing at will - our spirits braced, our thoughts
Pleasant as roses in the thiclqets blown,
And pure as dew bathing their crimson leaves."
ur ady's Sodalit
ELIZABETH A. AIIJICQHN joAN M. SHEA
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,
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
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.

PAULINE M. SKERRY MARION B. 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
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'

The year would not be complete without the presentation of the tradif

play were strong influences on our student critics.
And not to be outdone, Verdeoro sought some share in Commencement

Qur joys of the Christmastide ascended heavenfvvard through the medium
of resounding carols. As is customary, the songsters presented their Na'
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

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
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
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.

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.

Commission on International Relations of the National Federation of Cathof

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.

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
physical science, biology, chemistry, physics, and each one is given its
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.

is fitting because of their common ends - the advancement of science on

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
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

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
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.

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.
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

REV. PAUL J. MURPHY, SJ.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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."
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
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.

A literary gem to be treasured and treated
with respect is our Tourmaline. 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.

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."

The Senior Class of Our Lady of the Elms
, ,li .
' ,,.- sig'-,-fun-1 I U'
Commencement Week - today
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
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
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
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.

"On this day, oh beautiful Mother"
Let's not count our college days
By all the text hook pages turned.
The formulas and dates we learned
Were stepping stones to higher ways
Of thinking, acting, living. Yes,
We've hroadened each our scope of mind
In searching, guided, here, to lind
The greater things, related stress.
Let's count our days at O. L. E.
By all the happy things we've done v
The friends we've made, work shared and fun
The pride in each ahility
That any one of us has shown,
The changes since our freshman year,
The knowledge that our time spent here
Has heen the hest we could have known.
