Four years with You have shown us how to incorporate the three- fold duties of prayer, work and play into our daily lives and so make us become better fortified as Tomorrow's Citizens. Un- selfishly and wholeheartedly You rendered time and assistance to all our needs and forever dear to our hearts are Your friendly smiles and words of encouragement. St. Ioseph, the Quiet, must indeed beam on You, his Sisters, for how else could such outward efficiency and inward peacefulness combine and manifest itself with so much splendor? The class of '50 extends its gratefulness to You, whom "Only the Master shall praise." They brightened the gray of our college days and from the start we loved them. Now God has taken Sister Mary Assumpta and Sister Iosepha Mary home with I-lim and be- ing only finite, we feel the pain of loss and deem it lonely here without our Sisters. So may we enfold them within the pages of Our Elmata as we have long since enfolded them in the hallowed portals of our memories. l22l Warenfa "Tl1f'.sf' pearls, H1 wsu gmns, This is to certify that You, the Parents of the class of l95U, having successfully rendered unlimited amounts of love, care and fond devotion to us these four years past, have Worthily merited this diploma of heartfelt gratitude and sincere appreciation. Our commencement day is your day and every Ucum laude" belongs rightfully to you alone. From our earliest days you have given us every advantage and, foreseeing the needs of the future, have equipped us with an education in our cherished Faith. Orchids be your class flower, print dress and tweed topcoat your scho- lastic garb. This page is devoted to your praises as is every page of our lives for we will never cease lauding your kindnesses and thanking God for the greatest blessing of all, Our Parents. ln testimony thereof, this diploma is granted to you by the author- ity of the graduates of '50 with none but the highest awards. i231 Ham' UH'illfIUl'f' l1f'011rg1'z'en fn ue "l also love a quiet place ur pricle aiaol joy? lu years lo come we slfiall recall you aificl reclress you iii loificl memories.

Ckwning mama! wifli jhe Lghlo 5 I-ley, step right up, it's time to hear What happened to the Sophs this year. What's that? Who may the Sophomores be? Why, they're the joy of O. L. E. Their trademark is a cheery smile. Their jokes are never out of style. And now, my friends, l point with pride To the biggest venture that they tried. The circus with its glitter gay Comes to the Elms for just a day. The smiles, the songs, the laughs, the lights, H091 The Sophomore show, what joyous sights! Look first behind the spotlights glow, These are the ones who build the show. They never gain the world's applauseg Theirs is a vital, praiseless cause. To the roustea-bouts a hand we give, Their ceaseless toil makes the big-top live. And now the side-show comes in viewg The giants and midgets and fat men, too. The snake charmer's pets cause many a cry But the Hawaiian dancer brings forth a sigh. T Vjxftw Na i A ll. Baceski, A Chunn, I. Baillargeon, M. Slattery, M. Danis, M.Bouyea, E. Blair. S. Smith, I.

The bearded lady is a sight to see, And in our hearts they'll always be And the clowns make everyone shout with glee. Our "smiling class" irom O. L. E. And so the acts before us pass, Each one more wondrous than the last. Theres pink lemonade and popcorn, too, And canes and balloons, both red and blue. And now, folks, as night begins to tall Calliopes send forth a squeaky call. The circus train must go away, Its mirth and mem'ries alone may stay. .- , I Each Soph's a trouper with heart of gold, Theirs is a show story dear to hold. So to the Sophs we give a cheer 4 May we welcome them back again next year. I llO I Xx Iean M.

OWLULVL ,JZIWO LC Now it came to pass in those days, that there went forth a decree from Maximus Costius CMare Costal that all plebians lfreshmenl of the "Campus Collegium Dominae Nostrae in Ulmis" be present in full array of the prescribed Roman garb ltoga, black stockings, sandals with green and gold ribbons, straight hair, hedge-leaf crown, name band on forehead, and the saccus, shopping bagl for the Emperors review, tem- pus-8:l5 each morning, locus-the amphi- theater, courtyard of O'Leary Hall. This was decreed "ante diem quartum Kalendis Octo- bris, anno Domini l949". For four days the brave plebians were wont to conduct them- selves as such, endeavoring to converse, with a "straight face", in perfect English or perfect Latin with the sedate senators Cseniorsl. The 3 rigorous rules for the conduct of plebians were probably felt most with regard to the restric- tions on the use of the "Temple of the Vestal Virgins". Now when the end of the Roman holiday came, the entire aspect changede the excite- ment and confusion of the first days were for- gotten, friendships began to broaden, echoes of "Salute, Senator" began to die down, How- ever, the winsome welcomes of the upper- classmen will always be remembered. Finally the introduction to Our Lady's Col- lege was heightened by the memorable Elms Night with its meeting of junior sisters, stout strains of "Cfaudeamus", and its shower of freshmen caps. And it happened that on the following day the stern senators became as plebians, for they turned about fair play and made up the beds of their freshmen, cleaned their rooms, emptied their waste baskets, and cleared away coke bottles. II And when the full days of October were drawing to a close and the plebians were re- covering from stiff muscles received while amusing the senators during the daily morning exercises on the Appian Way and in the Am- phitheater, there came "the day that the Lord hath made", the feast of the King of Kings, upon which day our "severe" senators were vested with their prized caps and gowns, and clothed as valiant warriors for Christ. Copious social events hastened our first real social, the "Elmata". "Tempus fugit", and well we knew it. The "Elmata" meant the yearbook, which meant graduation was coming soon, and with it the separation of the plebians from the senators. But the only hope left was to make the best of the time that remained. Then it came to pass that our beloved Founder and President, Beverend Thomas M. O'Leary, Bishop of Springfield, was called be- fore his King. Quiet days of mourning followed -quiet in the atmosphere of prayer for the departed. Perhaps our senators who knew the Bishop the longest felt the departure the most. November brought, along with the beginning of cold winds, Thanksgiving vacation, naughty ghosts, and, of course, our lunior-Freshman Tea. The frosh became more fully acquainted with the jolly juniors. So, added to the friend- ship of our grave old senators, was the beau- tiful, deep one with our "big sisters". Now December was a rich month with lec- tures, Liturgy and Literary Club meetings, Glee Club concerts, Orphans' party, Christmas pag- eant and caroling. But most important was our "night of nights", Sodality Reception. The laughing Boman plebians became the simple, child-like Sodalists of Mary. Upper classmen were reminded of their first days as intimate sharers of Mary's life. The first month of the I-loly Year held mid- year exams with the accompanying painful headaches and the exciting intramural basket- ball games. And it happened that February was also an event-packed month on campus. On the very first day "Mary was taken up into Heaven", Sister Mary Assumpta became lost to the world, but not forgotten. Then the rustle and bustle of the lunior Promenade, our first formal, the Verdeoro Dramatic Society play, our first look at our freshman dramatic talent along with representatives of the upper classes, Umemento homo" and the silence of Lent stole upon us. "In Kalendis Martiis" came the unforgettable Father-Daughter Banquet. lt was hard to de- cide who was the happier, Daddy or his little girl. The grand feast of St. Patrick had its highlight on our first show, "Dreamers Holi- day". We were reminded of our first stage appearance, the performance of "Iulius Caesar" on Elms Night. These things which this witness has recorded here go to make up the happy memories of our year with the relentless senators at this college of Our Lady. There are, however, many other things that happened, but every one of them could not be written here, for not even this entire book could contain all of them. llllll Z7 14855 WLO'LlfL ANETZBERGER, DOROTHEA A. 18 Victoria St., Springfield BASS, SHIRLEY A. 70 Maple Ter., West Springfield BODEN, KAREN C. 8 Park Villa Ave., Worcester BUTRYMOWICZ, VERONICA B. 88 Seymour St., Pittsfield BYRNES, PATRICIA A. 93 Bedford St., New York, N.

The 'Eucharistic Committee, headed by Christine Swords, takes marvelous care of the Bulletin Board and assigns us to our monthly vigils. Mary Connelly heads Cur Lady's Committee and We will not soon forget her tireless endeavors with the perpetual rosary list as well as the movie on Our Lady of La Sallette. The staunchest supporter of the missions is Mary Walsh who, with her committee, has collected toys for Indian children, requested literature on the missions and posted stamp boxes in all parts of the school buildings. loanne Young, chairman of the Literary Committee, and Mary Connors, chairman of the Social Committee, have worked with diligence and, as a result, we enjoyed the various meet- ings and social functions which these committees proposed. And who Will forget the vim and enthusiasm that Marianne Lynch displayed in heading the newest addition to the Sodality, namely, the Catholic Truth Committee? Our recognition goes also to those efficient representatives from the four classes who com- prised the Advisory Board which, in turn, chose capable leaders for the annual social functions. H181 .fl .

Donelan In the years since we were freshmen and the National Federation of Catholic College Students first came to Our Lady of the Elms, the federation has become an integral part of life here and now holds a most important and respected place in the scheme of extra-curric- ular activities. The esteem gained by NFCCS with the passage of time is a product of an increasing fulfillment of its lofty aims which are crowned by the overall purpose of developing apostolic lay leaders toward a Christian rebirth of society. Monthly meetings and the NFCCS bulletin board were instrumental in keeping all of us informed on what the various commissions and regions were doing. But, that is not all. We took an active part in promoting commission activity and federation projects such as the Overseas Service Program under which material, spiritual, and intellectual aid was sent to foreign students, and Holy Year pilgrimages to Rome were sponsored. Again this year Our Lady of the Elms held the chair of the National Liturgy Commission, the aim of which is to train students to love and live the Liturgy. Monthly Newsletters devel- oped the theme, The Liturgy and the Lay Apostle, and encouraged among students use of the Dialogue Mass and parts of the Divine Office, and formation of Liturgy Clubs. These objectives were carried out on our own campus as they have been in years past. lll9l - gig fir President Ann T. McNamee V 1,06-Pf6'S1'd?lll Ioan M. Vaughan Secrvlary Anne Marie Donley Treasurer Violette L. Cartier This year, as in the past, the clear and harmonious melodies of the Clee Club have posed background music for many campus activities. loined together by a mutual love for the beau- tiful, this club has become one of the finest on campus. Christmastime was heralded by the simple and expressive interpretations of ageeold carols in new and exciting arrangements. Starting with a concert in our college auditorium, the club continued their tour on the following days to several surrounding communities. Tone color is a musical expression that denotes the character of a certain note. When applied to our Clee Club we may explain the term this way. Tone gives reference to the har- monious blend of voices, color could pertain to the new green gowns the club has acquired. Together the "tone color" of our club has a professional touch. Again this year the concerts included one with our old friends of the musical clubs of Boston College. As has become the annual custom, the affair, musically and socially speaking, won well-deserved praise. The beauty and clear harmony of the girls' voices were enhanced by the round, mellow tones of B. Cfs Choristers. Last in sequence but not in appreciation is our token of sincere gratitude to Marion, our talented directress, and Theresa, the club's capable accompanist. Many are the memories we have of the joy of singing together, and many are the days that we shall return to join our classmates in song. H201 JI II ,ILP 80lf'0 Presiderzit - T ' Christine M.

El And where could one find a more apt setting for the trials and laughs, the problems and solutions ever present in a girl's college and more colorful a presentation than this years Verdeoro production? The all-girl cast outdid itself in creating the dramatic highlight of the l949-50 season. Under the direction of Christine Swords, president of the society, the versatile cast did a splendid job at the diversified character representations. "Tina" is long since our noted authority on the picture behind the scenes. A veteran performer and natural lead is Ruth Conlin, Verdeoro vice-president, whose rendition of the Brook Valley kleptomaniac is equalled only by her former portrayals of diffi- cult character roles. The snippy Drucilla will long be remembered as will Barbara Sullivan, who played the part, Babs, club secretary, also lends an efficient hand in the make-up department. Our treasurer, Mary Lou Muller, who played with ease the frustrated Sara Cantry, has appeared annually in Verdeoro presentations, and has directed stage and prop crews. Various meetings held throughout the year were the center of informal entertainment and discussion, as well as serious planning of dramatic activities. Verdeoro, as the name implies, spent another successful year promoting the spirit of truth, in work and in play. ll2lfI 'Ji -9 7 dence President Gertrude F. Donovan Vice-President Elizabeth L. Clark Secretary Alma C. Uriarte Treasurer Ieanne L. Pepin With the scientific viewpoint and approach to international problems which occupy the world today, no list of activities on campus would be complete without the Science Club. Graduates receiving a BS. degree and thus trained in the physical sciences, are not only prepared practically for their Work as teachers, technicians and chemists, but also are imbued morally with a scientific outlook tempered by Catholic truth. Within the Science Club are coordinated interests in the fields of chemistry, biology, and physics. As research and problems of each are discussed, the ever-increasing dependence of one field upon the other is being realized. At each Science Club meeting various topics of student interest were discussed. Rating high among them was "The Position of Women in Science", which elucidated to what extent women could carry out their scientific training. Another highlight of the club's schedule was the meeting devoted to movies on Penicillin and its role in the world today. lnterest in photography and darkroom apparatus, and the annual trip to the Planetarium in Springfield helped to round out a most successful year. Both the Science Club and A. C. S. maintain a close cooperation, with meetings and dis- cussions of either club open to members of both clubs. Through this collaboration, students in the field of science are kept abreast of scientific developments in the World today. H221 ozfwignor 0 e President Mary I. Connelly Vice-President Barbara A. Eichorn Secretary Irene I. Michelson Treasurer Doris M. Giblin For those with a technical scientific interest, we have the American Chemical Society Student Affiliation. Of national scope, the campus society is a chartered division of the well- recognized A. C. S. The informal monthly meetings seek to broaden the scientific interest of the student. This year's series opened with a talk by our new moderator and professor, Mr. Robert Ol-lerron. His topic, "Synthetic Rubber", was a unique presentation, in a manner understandable to those having less technical skill, of the background and uses of synthetic material. A student symposium on "Liquid Fuel Supplies and National Security" provoked much discussion and presented valuable information to those attending. Mr. William Markland, associated with the Breck cosmetic industry, fascinated his audi- ence With the "Chemistry of Cosmetics", in which he explained its history, its composition, and outlined the challenging problems which now lie before the industry. Movies, "This ls Nylon" and "Magnesium - Treasure from the Sea", highlighted another meeting. "The Chemistry of Wool", presented by Mr. Ralph Lucardi, enlightened all as to the intri- cate steps taken in the production of our Wool materials and products. A. C. S. has been a help as Well as a source of information and inspiration for all Elrnites aspiring to the vast fields of scientific endeavor. We are grateful to our energetic student officers and our faculty advisors who have given so freely of time and effort. H231 Wi? ibedafing ,ggcielfy President Mary H.

McDonnell One of the basic purposes of the Mother lohn Berchman's Debating Society is the develop- ment of collegians interested in forensics into Catholic lay leaders of the future. lt concerns, as Well as encourages, the application of logical thinking to current national topics. Although the group during this past year has been small, it has been quite active. Fea- tured in the M, I. Bfs activities were interclass debates on various topics both national and collegiate, as well as the ever-successful intercollegiate contests. Both on campus and away, affirmative and negative teams met opponents from such colleges as Mount Holyoke, Amherst, Albertus Magnus, and St. Michaels. The controversial intercollegiate question for the varsity team this year Was: "Resolved that the United States should nationalize its basic non-agricul- tural industries." In addition to the scheduled debates, several informal panel discussions have been held for the benefit of those interested in broadening their college, national and international scope. Included among the topics discussed were the existence of fraternities and sororities in colleges, the problem of China, federal world government, and the direct election of the president. Outstanding among the social activities of the Debating Society this year was the resump- tion of the Silver Tea, held in February. Pouring for the occasion were Mary Murray '50 and Maureen I-lourihan '51, assisted by the other officers of the club. Appreciation of the Debating Society has been evidenced this year by the avid interest of non-members of the club. Through its Work many have learned to apply logic to everyday problems.

Roy Treasurer Mary Ruth Spring Familiarization of the student with current problems of the day is the primary purpose of the lnternational Relations Club. By means of discussions held bi-monthly, the Catholic college student learns to apply Christian principles to questions confronting the world today. Included among topics discussed at the panels this year have been Russia, China, and the problem of the atomic bomb. ln addition, films were shown on atomic energy, the Univer- sal Declaration of Human Rights, and the territories under United Nations' control. Acting as commentators for the films were Helen Kelly '51, Mary Ruth Spring '50, and Mary Connors '5U. At the New England conference of the Carnegie Peace Organization, held at the Univer- sity of New Hampshire on December 2, 3, and 4, the theme was Asia and its significance on future world events. Helen Kelly represented Our Lady of the Elms at this meeting, and at a subsequent meeting on campus acquainted l. R. C. with the various problems discussed. A joint panel discussion on China was held on February 26, between the clubs of Holy Cross College and Our Lady of the Elms. The speakers included Nancy Reed and Marianne Lynch representing the Elms, and Paul Henne and Daniel Martin of Holy Cross. The N. E. C. S. P. F. held its annual conference at Providence College on April 29, at which the Elms undertook the discussion of the social system and characteristics of the Russian people.

Seeking to impress upon its members an appreciation of the culture and customs of Spain the club dedicated several of the year's meetings to the study and discussion of art, the pre- sentation of dramas, and the explanation of quaint customs. One meeting was entirely devoted to the study of Spain's most prominent artists whose masterpieces were displayed and explained by members who had specialized in the field. ln addition to their natural contribution to the Spanish spirit of the club the Puerto Ricans have actively participated in several meetings at which they gave charming and amusing descriptions of the customs of their people during the great seasons of Christmas and Easter. Music, always a source of recreation and pleasure, was doubly so when singing .in Spanish songs dear to the American heart, songs from the Christmas repertoire to those with an lrish lilt -- yes, doubly intriguing in the Spanish accent. The important celebration of the year is "siempre" the Feast of the Epiphany when the Christmas spirit invades the realms of the Corte. A grand fiesta with their cousins from Le Cercle Francais was the usual success ee songs, games, refreshments, dramas, laughs. La Corte Castellana holds a place of importance on campus because of its aims and adherence to those aims - to give to the student of the Spanish tongue practical use of the language and of classroom learning, to instill in her an appreciation of Spanish culture for itself and for its influence on her future vocation.

To all our collegiennes and most especially to the staff and contributors, this bi-annual magazine is the soul of the creative spirit, the fountain of flowering genius and the instrument of the artistic and the aesthetic aspiration of tomorrow's literaries. Nineteen fifty's contribution to the periodical's progress was the introduction of pages of pictures that added zest and a festive note, The stories, poems and essays portray deeply per- sonal and vital emotion to the readers.

The stories, although partly fictional, always include the trace of the authors personality and experience and it is this personal note that we, classmates, enjoy recognizing in our magazine.

Our own Elmscript, being the product of an intellectual Christian community, reports the news of cur- rent interest to the community and through its editorials and features presents essential truths for our consideration and action. lt is with justifiable pride that each Elmite awaits and eagerly receives each month her copy of this work of our hands.

Classes, clubs, sports, lectures, alumnae - all receive complete coverage in this voice of the Elms. Having received All-American and All-Catholic honors in the last two successive surveys, our Elmscript, although a young publication, holds a respected place in the rank of Catholic college newspapers. Elmscript has been cherished by all of us in the years that we have seen it develop by our own efforts into the journalistic gem that it is today.

Akey Secretary Suzanne K. Carell Treasurer Marilyn R. Walsh Dedicated unotticially, but nonetheless earnestly, to a system of perpetual motion, the Athletic Association has been living up to its unparalleled status as "the active club" on cam- pus. Whatever the weather, whatever the season, be it autumn, winter, spring, from all parts may be heard that unceasing buzz of activity - from the gym the urgent rat-ta-tat-tat ot ping- pong balls, or the ringing cheers ot agitated spectators lulled by the insistent shriek of a whistle, trom the tennis court the agonized cry ot "love-forty", or from beyond O'Leary the heated warning to Hslide, sliclewl This year has been the usual tull one for all A. A. members. Eager to gain all the neces- sary points leading to a longed-tor athletic letter, each member has taken an active part in periodical tournaments in such sports as ping-pong, badminton, bowling, volley ball, archery, tennis and softball. Not to be torgotten are the basketball intra murals whose claim to tame - action, laughs, excitement plus, class competition - rate them a coveted spot in the limelight. Anxiety, eager- ness and determination lent wings to class spirit which soared to unprecedented heights from the tirst timeein whistle even to the last triumphant cheer. The result was the usual jaunty victory tor the winners and grim calamity tor the losers, but always a heart-warming test and proot ot true Catholic sportsmanship. Basketball is no longer restricted to intramurals since the inauguration of the now three- yeareold varsity which, .under the capable supervision of Miss Bisalleon, is gradually coming into its own. The team met, with great success and one not measured entirely by the number ot points scored, several teams including Regis, Mt. St. Mary's and Annhurst. The activities closed with the Commencement Week field day and banquet at which the long-awaited awards and trophies were presented. The Athletic Association along with the other clubs on campus is accomplishing that aim of combining social activity with the other recognized pursuits ot the Catholic college student. l13Ul lbefia Qaida ,Sigma Pauline M.

Weldon, DD., Bishop of Springfield Cfdifif 08140, CANTATA OF 1950 The Autumn of our College doys hos come. Our lost Elm leof is turned to purest gold. The story of our College life is told, Not in honors lost or won, But in o host of treoisured hours shored, Our Lodys compus foiir dnd sweet, The proyerful quiet of Retreat, The frogronce of her Chdpel flowers, Youths cdreless goiiety ond disoppointments The confidence true friendship brings, The books, the studies - hurrying to cloiss, Truth, volues, knowledge firmly closped. The Autumn of our College doys is here, And these ore vivid, cherished souvenirs Of Winters verse ond Springs sweet melody. Contoto of our life ot C. L. E. sting l 3-V88 Four years ago, Our Lady of the Elms extended joyfully her welcoming arms to a young and eager group of freshmen. As time passed, during every jeweled moment of our college days, we absorbed the Christian faith and boundless love of our Patroness and our faculty. We labored, lamented, and rejoiced on a campus whose purpose is ultimately our adoration of God and a dedication of our lives to His service. We experienced gradually an intellectual, moral, and spiritual awakening and a realiza- tion of life and the responsibilities it holds for us. Today, we, the Class of l95O, plant our tree, the traditional gesture of our departure. As our tree will grow in the soil of the land, so may we grow in the wisdom and dignity which can be ours if we choose to strive for it, As our tree is nourished by nature, so may we be nourished to fulfill within ourselves a greater spiritual fervor and an appreciation of our background of honor. May we be f' "" -' ' ab 5, Vrdv . Mi S , L. ll 5 Us .L -M., Omfion blessed with the grace of God to apply in the future that essence of loyalty and integrity which has been our example in the past. For our generation the task will not be an easy one. Can we fully comprehend the com- plexities of a compromising, modern world? Sheltered within a bulwark of Christian ideals will we be able to assume the cloak of realistic fearlessness which is expected of us? We can . . . we must. As our tree will branch out and display its verdant beauty, let us shed our light of truth to others. Through goodness and charity we can teach the philosophy of the Christian which expresses itself, not by words, but by a practical unfolding of knowledge in the essence of our daily lives, Lastly, as our tree will proudly raise its branches to the sky, may we, the Senior Class of l95O, raise our hearts in thanksgiving to the God who has given us these treasured years which may remain, not only cherished memo- ries, but the foundation of an even greater life ahead.

ARTICLE VI The entire senior class leaves to all the underclass- men a fervent 'lthank you" for their friendship and a request for a memory and a prayer once in a while, Declaring this to be an entire deposition of our worldly goods, we place our hands and seal to this document in the year of Gur Lord nineteen hundred and fifty. The Senior Class of Our Lady of the Elms, .illllflillllf C,'llSlll'lIlI Class Attorney ll5ll ,' X X enjoin WLOIQ5 Z5 A DRAMA IN THREE ACTS Act l opened with the autumnal beauty of the Elms' campus as a background. The cast was busy re-living the activities of the summer holiday in their conversation, but the principal characters Y the seniors e- were trying hard to suppress their excitement. l-leaven knows we practiced and rehearsed three years, anxiously awaiting the day we would portray the impor- tant role of seniors. Yet the rising curtain found most of us gripped with stage fright. After our first awkward movements our acting was really put to the test in planning the Initiation of the Freshmen. That week saw us pretending to be the mighty senators lording it over the poor plebs, The good-natured frosh realized we were only playeacting and made their first appearance before the footlights a real success, The stage was set once more. This time the spotlight was focused on the costumes as the academic caps and gowns were bestowed upon us, the seniors. l-low stately the procession, how joyful and somewhat sad our hearts as we received the symbol of our achievementl The autumn festivities were superbly ended when the sophs took over the playhouse in Veritas Auditorium, Our merriment and wonder were unlimited A A for lo and behold, the circus had come to townl 'A' 'k 'k -k Act ll had a sublime opening in chapel as the freshmen were received into Our Lady's Sodality. Together we renewed our pledge of love and loyalty to Mary, our patroness, confi- dent of her guidance in the future, H521 The scenery was enhanced by the beauty of winter as plans for the Christmas party were discussed. While the Cflee Club was bringing the peace and ioy of the Christmas spirit to the surrounding area, our own campus was warmed and delighted by carol singing of the students. Our supper by candle light and the brilliantly trimmed tree have made the traditional Christmas party a treasured memory. We returned from the holidays with good resolutions and ready for serious work. After a brief struggle with blue books and semester exams, the spotlight was immediately turned upon the juniors and their well-kept secret of the Prom. What a delightful surprise it was to find ourselves dancing beneath billowy clouds with our own enjoyment as the silver liningl But like the clouds, that hour too rolled by and the stage was set for the next scene. Our Dads were welcomed and given the place of honor as we toured the United States, delighting in our national scenes and songs. This was our thanks to Dad in the Elms' fashion, The second act closed with our annual retreat. After reflecting on the past and summon- ing hope and courage, we felt our retreat master left us well fortified for the future. 'k 'k -k 'k The curtain went up on the final act with the Cxlee Clubs of Boston College and the Elms blending their voices in negro spirituals, stirring marches and familiar melodies both old and new. This gaiety was continued through the spring formal with its rhythmic music and exotic decorations. ln May we paid tribute to both our heavenly mother and our own mothers, to Mary with a living rosary on May Day and to our earthly mothers with our annual Mother-Daughter tea. And now we are enacting the climax of the drama ff commencement week. The support- ing props of the year, the study hours, basketball games, vigils, club activities, dances, stair singing, and all the others have their culmination in this week. The beauty of the moments speaks for themselves. When the curtain goes down on this last act we will hope we have finished well the dress rehearsal for our part in the drama of life. t153l KLM Mojo ec? Washington, D. C. March l9, l96O Dear Polly, Congratulationsl I could hardly believe my eyes when l saw the book, but there it was, "The Liturgy and the Layman? by Pauline M, Skerry. Good workl Now that the book is pub- lished you will have a vacation Cpardon the expressioni and time to edit the Elmanac. My vacation supposedly started last week, but there was as usual one more story to cover. Strangely enough that was a blessing that afforded me a wonderful opportunity to check on the class of 'SU for the Elmanac report you requested. The reason? . . . the capitol is swarming with fiftyites. Senator Iaqueline Dent was storming the Senate with vehement requests for more appro- priations for the R,R.N,PC.C.S.D. So inspiring was lackies speech that Mary "NPCCS" Mur- ray, leading exponent of the cause, despite the plague of such questions as, "Whats the com- mittee doing?" 'iWhere is the money going?" "What is the R.R.N,PC.C,S,D.?", was convinced that the cause was won. But not Opposition appeared in the form of Mary l-l. Costa, her pet project the l,C.O.C. flntelligence Club Off Cam- pusl, and the able vocal assistance of Repre- sentative Terry Ash. A battle royal was in the offing, or so it seemed, until the capitol s peace- maker and general conciliator, lonnie Miner, stepped into the picture. With an ease acquired at the Elms she placated the "bigwigs", calmed her associates, and won appropriations for both sides. Once again peace reigned. By the way, Polly, in case you didn't know, R.R.N.F.C,C,S.D. means Relief for Retired NPCCS Delegates. Theres still a bit of confu- sion about the affair, though. Now Washing- tonians are asking, "What is Nl7CCS?" While everyone else was settling the minor details at the capitol, Ionnie and Mary Costa invited me to start my vacation by spending a weekend with them, l saw here an occasion to glean a bit of information on the class of '5O. The two of them put their heads together and so added to my knowledge of 'SO that all l can say is "What a classl" lWhere have l heard that before?7 Mary, by the way, was on leave of absence from the Colorado Clinic and Research Founda- tion established by Doctors Virginia lette and ludy Porrata who have attained remarkable success in the practical adaptation of labora- tory discoveries to medical treatment. The biol- ogy lab was in the hands of Rosie Fernandez and Rosalia Polanco until the two decided to abandon science in favor of a home and family down Puerto Rico way. Grace Ayers immedi- ately took over the work, and ably too, She was later joined by Gert Donovan, but rumor .,'u,- 'QT if Kr mxe-2 K 1 ' T x- ls -N 'Niki f . 1,1 has it that the Donovan smile and cheery attitude do more for clinic patients than any amount of medical treatment. And then we find in quiet but energetic seclusion among the test tubes of the chem lab none other than Professors Gertrude O'Connell and Doris Giblin. To complete the Colorado version of the Elms science course we find special research being conducted in the field of x-ray by Elaine Davis and. . . yes, Mary Costa. The IGOC, is merely a side issue with Mary. Most of the business is left in the capable hands of Bettianne Shaw. A sort of "Who's Who" is published yearly by the association and the last time Mary saw Bettianne she was in a state of near collapse after trying to balance the books. I have it on good authority that the names of many fiftyites will be listed in the publication this year, among them Professor Mary I. Con- nelly of Fordham, winner of the Nobel prize for the modernized theory of square circles, Ieanne Brault, honorary poet laureate of Eng- land, the noted professor of history from the University of Bohemia, Mary Shanahan, and M. I. Frawley, whose new "Symphony Under the Elms" is the acclaim of the world of music. The symphony was a success from the very first presentation due to brilliant conducting of the orchestra by Marion Black and the financial backing of Nancy Footit and Marietta Shea. Iane's delightful music seemed doomed to die without a hearing until the Footit-Shea Artists, Inc., came to the rescue. Isn't it wonderful the way the Elms' spirit of cooperation prevails with the passing years? Do you read the sport page of your daily paper, Polly? If riot, here's a tidbit for you. The first morning of our weekend Ionnie greeted me with a beaming and self-satisfied expres- sion. The cause of her joy was the morning paper displaying Pat Tierney's breathtaking jump which copped her the Olympic skiing title in Switzerland. Moreover, Pat demonstrated an invention on which Ionnie has been working since her accident junior year-non-fall skis, They have parachute-like mechanism and it's a shame Pat couldn't wear them in the title meets. I-Iowever, she did well, as did a surprise entry from North Carolina, Mary Ruth Spring, who won the slalom event. When asked to what she attributed her skiing ability she com- placently replied, "I've seen it done in the movies." Now that I think of it they could have gotten away with using the anti-bonebreaker pre- pared by Mary. Lou Muller. In her free time '. I-I Q' ' -.-.-" '- . . .mf ..'.,-'f --. M73 ,.

Along with every bottle of anti-bonebreaker the buyer receives a pamphlet entitled "Ten Easy Ways to Break Bones" by one who knows. I hear that the Elms has added a large supply to its ath- letic equipment. Have you heard of the phenomenal success that Ianey Hughes and Grace Donovan are having with their New York advertising agen- cy? An example of their work is the thriving business of the Knight-O'Malley-Crevier Trans- Atlantic Airlines. The business was on the rocks when Iane and Grace took over the ad- vertising. Their first suggestion was that the three girls stop doing their own flying. Then they had them sponsor a new radio program. The program, featuring Marianne Nolan, is called "I Can Top Anything-Can You Top Me?" A free trip to France is offered to anyone who can top Marianne. Results are as ex- pected . . . no free trips. The airline works in collaboration with the Cartier-Connors Company in France. Mary and "Vi" have made a successful business of serv- ing tourists in every capacity. Although they started out on their own, they now have a large staff working under them. I155l Speaking of France reminds me that Mary Helen Nugent and Ann McNamee are traveling in Europe. "Mac" is on a special assignment for the magazine "Fashions and Milady" which she, Mary lean Davis, and Ann Scannell started a few years ago. The magazine treats of how milady dresses and acts and how she ought to dress and act. While "Mac" in Europe and Mary lean in South America take care of the fashion for the next issue, Ann is at home taking care of milady. "Nuge", who just received her Ph.D. from the Sorbonne, wrote lonnie that the authorities at the university were so sorry that Mademoi- selle Dooley could not complete her studies this year, and they hoped that her teaching duties at Laval would not be quite so pressing next year. Although "Nuge" has her many degrees, she is still being tempted to join Clare McDon- nell and Peg Manning in Hawaii. Barbara Albano just entered the partnership and their "Elmaloa-hey" resort is a marvel. Their chef is reputed to serve the best gravy and rice outside Watch Hill. Partnerships seem to be a fad with the class of '5O. Ioan Boy and Peg Shea find that their illustrations of books and magazines are in popular demand. Peg has just completed illus- trations for the new Greek Major course at the Elms. Apparently her own enthusiasm for the course inspired the college to offer it as a ma- jor. loan, on the other hand, is hard at work on illustrations especially requested by Fr. Stafford for his new notes in Psychology. As an aid in the study of the notes the Elms has purchased an inspiring and "inspired" supplement en- titled "How to Avoid Heresy in the Classroom" by Barbara A. Carlisle. Another course that was definitely inspiring was the "Marriage-Guidance". When Evelyn Walsh married George she started in on the suggestions. They bought a farm, she baked her own bread, but when George said it was a choice between a car and a buggy . . . you guessed it! On the other hand, Peg Scott White writes that when she and Bill brought Billy, Ir., and the twins to visit the Morse goat farm in Scituate Mrs. Morse lMaripat Casavanl was sitting back on the royalties from her best-seller book, "The Goat and I". Guess it all depends on the way you look at it. Another contribution by the class to the field of literature is Alice Holda's aid to popularity, "How to Be a Lady". Inspira- tion for the book dates back to junior Dorm I156l days and initiated but never-completed at- tempts at a charm course. Speaking of charm, Franny Posco, the eco- nomic advisor to the president, rules the capi- tol's social faction with an iron but charming hand. In other words, Franny is the center about which the Washington social whirl re- volves. Yesterday she gave a luncheon for Peg Lively who is on her way south to investigate living conditions. Peg has just been elected president of the national organization of social workers. I received a letter from Tina today. She was quite pleased at Peg's election, because it was Peg who influenced Tina in establishing the Swords' School for underprivileged children. Many a delinquent child has been cured at the school thanks to Tina's experience in teaching at the House of the Good Shepherd and also the able assistance given by Marie Magner, whose unruffled calm is always a boon in the midst of confusion and tumult. No doubt the latter's requests for peace and silence come more frequently in her present environment than they did at the Elms. Going back to Franny's luncheon you will never guess who was at the door when I walked in CI told you Washington was swarming with theml . . . Peggy lasper, Barbara Bastien, Helen Walinski and Eleanor Burns. Peggy greeted me with that old "Identify yourself, please." You'll never believe it when I tell you, but she is an F.B.I. agent! I always knew there was something unpredictable about her, but this! The other three, Barbara, Helen and Burnsey, are accompanying Peg Lively south. They have perfected a new method of tests and measurements. While Peg is investigating the conditions, they intend to measure the effects of those conditions on the children. As I say, you really never can foretell what the future will produce! And with that, Polly, I say "Finis!" to the efforts and successes of the class of '5O. If I've missed anyone just give me the word, but I think the count is right . . . 58 accounted for. Let's hope that Providence continues to shine on them. Best wishes to you and to all the class of '5O. May God love and bless us all, always! Marilyn R. Walsh, Your Wash.
