Ye, who with Aurora rise, have successfully created here the
warmth and happiness so essential to a "home-like" atmosphere.
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.
"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.

SIGHING, in wonder and relief, after an autumn return from that
hectic summer . . .
TRYING desperately to maintain a laissezvfaire policy during initia-
tion week . . .
WANTING, so very much, to make this campus a home for scores of
newcomers . . .
FINDING freshman sisters, feeling dozens older, taking them all to
Blake's, proudly . . .
POLISI-IING class rings, every few minutes, to make each tourmaline
mirror a glowing face . . .
DRESSING up for I-IalIowe'en-almost raising the dead-staying
around campus for a while . . .
WORKING on "Streets" for a bit of music on Liturgy Weekend-
worrying about Sth Avenue and Main Street . . .
KNOWING so well, this year, that sense of belonging at the Christmas
Stair sing . . .
BENDING over I-Iistory of Ed. exams, not having "gone out from" the
subject, yet . . .
WONDERING if Placement Test results prove that A.R.'s should be
R.S.'s and vice versa . . .

CLIMBING ladders to dizzy heights - and coming down againl for
"the land where raindrops come dripping off the trees" . . .
GASPING at the sight of a decorated gym, anxious for the Big Night
-that Iunior Prom . . .
DANCING to our very own music, presenting our very own favors,
smiling up at our very own - . . .
CARRYING a daisy chain together on Marys Day - united that way,
in her . . ,
WATCHING Ioann help Ionnie with the planting of a tree, wanting
it to live forever . . .
SITTING in the front rows at graduation, glad to be there instead of
on the stage . . .
TRYING on caps and gowns, just for size, amazed that Iune has
come . . .
SEEING the closest class to '51 go over the horizon into a waiting
world . . .
FEELING, always, the nearness of a final year, the weight of being
now the 'first' class, the emptiness left by those who hold diplomas in
their hands A those whose places we can never hope to fill and whose
faces we shall always miss . . .

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,
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.

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.

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
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
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.
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-
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.

Life on our campus revolves around Our Lady's Sodality and the various activities, social
as well as spiritual, that it sponsors. For four years we have watched our own Carol take the
steps from treasurer to prefect, which office she now effectively and beautifully fulfills.
Besides the four main offices which are held this year by Carol, loan, Annette and Helen,
the sodality is divided into six committees plus an advisory board. 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.

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.

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.

"The Young and Fair" at O. L. 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.

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.

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
"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.

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-
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
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

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

Always the pride of lllas estudiantes de espanol" la Corte Castellana brings to the Elms
a charming bit of "la vieja Espana", its inherent culture, its smooth-flowing language, its viva-
cious spirit, No small factor in contributing to the general Spanish atmosphere of the club is
the fiery enthusiasm of the Puerto Rican members. Their constant animation, Spanish-Amen
ican accents, fascinating mannerisms, bubbling humor, and inevitable 'X Que pasa? "are a
source of delight to all on campus.
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.

Tourmaline, as defined in Webster, is a mineral of various colors found especially in
South America. 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. Poems convey in blank verse and conventional forms,
one instance of beauty, one depiction of joy or sadness. 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.
Edited this year by the journalism class, the work accomplished, literally speaking, is not
only fine, it is inspiring, inspiring to those who read it and an inspiration and incentve to those
who write it, Compliments are many, abilities are rewarded and the fame is lasting.

As an instrument for following l-lim Who said "I am the Way and the Truth," the Catholic
newspaper has the aim of showing its readers the Way, of giving them the Truth. 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. The enthusiastic "Elmscript is out!" sends each one scurrying
to secure a preview of events to come and to refresh the memory of those past. 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. We look forward to
being kept posted on happenings in the shadows of the Elms through our beloved Elmscript.

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.

St. Thomas has said, "lt is lor the wise man to set things in orderf The national scholastic
honor society for students of Catholic colleges and universities has dwelt upon this phrase
and selected it to represent their society. And well it does in its representation, tor ot the girls
selected each year to become enrolled as members in Delta Epsilon Sigma, not one can be
said to have tailed in placing her scholastic ability and liberal culture traits in orderly sequence
This year we are represented in the society by six girls from the class ot SU and two mem-
bers ot the alumnae. These girls have worked thoroughly and etticiently in the course ot their
college term and are well worthy ot the recognition and encouragement which the society im-
parts to its members. They are privileged to wear the key of DES and have been "marked and
set aside because they have the evidence of order and have given promise ot showing more
wisdom, through order, as the years go on".
Alpha Kappa, our Elms chapter ot DES, expects, and rightly so, that the meinbers-elect ot
1950 will bring to the society a zeal and determination to aid in the direct spread ot the Catholic
way ot life.

faculty and friends, for we have endeavored to remember each and every one of You within

lt was pleasant work and a great deal of fun to select the choicest scenes and experiences
of four years and preserve them in our very own "Elmata" and due to the capable efforts of

forget the many notices that Peggy Shea so faithfully posted for pictures and the secret meete
ings of the editors?
We hope that in the future, this book may keep us united as the members of the class of
i950 and call us back to that time in our lives where youth, joy, and enthusiasm reigned
supreme and where time was a hateful enemy who attempted continually to remind us that
the pleasures of this world are fast-fleeting.

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.
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
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' "" -' '

Us .L -M.,
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
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

In the four years passed here on the campus of the
College of Our Lady of the Elms, we, the seniors, weary
and worn from academic labors, and instilled with
wisdom, knowledge, and worldly acumen, wish in our
generosity to bequeath a portion of our possessions to
those we must leave behind.
THE CLASS WILL
We, the senior class of l95U, being of sound mind and
having exceeded all other classes, past, present, and
future in our academic accomplishments, leave here
on our beloved campus a few treasured tokens of four
happy years. We trust that vou will "use them wisely,
hold them high, and guard them well".
To His Excellency, The Most Reverend Christopher I.
Weldon, our president, We, with the echoes of his festive
arrival still in our ears, leave our best wishes for happi-
ness in his new diocese, a solemn pledge ot fidelity to
his leadership, and a sincere promise of continued
prayer for a truly spiritual success in all things during
the years that lie ahead.
To our vice-president, Reverend Doctor Iohn R.
Rooney, is left our deep gratitude for the many labors,
both known and hidden, that he has so willingly per-
formed in our service.
To the Sisters of St. Ioseph, who have so unselfishly
devoted their lives in our behalf, we leave every
assurance of our profound appreciation, a sincere
pledge of loyalty to them, and a fervent prayer that
God will bless them abundantly.
To the entire faculty of this dear college we, having
reaped from their sowings the best possible harvest,
wish in return to leave to them the very best that is in
our hearts of earnest hopes for the full blessing of
Almighty God upon their labors.
Barbara Albano leaves her ability to complete lab
work in half the required time to Helen Vollinger.
To Angelo Posco, Barbara Bastien leaves her com-
plete file of information on the current theater.
Eleanor Burns leaves the famed annex mouse-trap
to Mary Roche.
Grace Ayers and Evelyn Crevier bequeath their
"remarkable punctuality" to any tardy underclassman.
Rosie Fernandez, Rosalie Polanco, and Iudy Porrata
leave to Alma Uriarte and Ellen Mayoral the task of
carrying on the Spanish tradition at the Elms.
To anyone who dares accept the challenge go Clare
McDonnell's inimitable impersonations.

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,
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
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.

Washington, D. C.
March l9, l96O
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
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
K 1 '

-N 'Niki f
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
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

away from the Yale Experimental labs Mary
Lou, like Ionnie, does a bit of inventing. 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-
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
Best wishes to you and to all the class of '5O.
May God love and bless us all, always!
