ROONEY, Ph.D icc-P n’sidcnt " To you with grateful hearts we sing " , for surely you have been a source of faith and love during four fruitful college years. Consecrated to the promulgation of Divine Truth, you have unselfishly devoted time and talent to u;;, not for individual glory or praise, but in the sincere hope of imprinting on matur- ing minds lessons of eternal values. What IS of far greater importance, you have given us, unknowingly, enriching examples of humility, steadfastness and courage; you have prayed for us quietly, confidently. And if we have accomplished anything here or will accomplish something in the future, it is to you, handmaids of St. Joseph, that we shall be in- debted. 14 r a rents MOTHER-DAUGHTER DAY Our Lady celebrates, in her yearly schedule, many occasions, but on no other one do our hearts swell with greater pride and joy than on that one dedicated especially to our lathers. Decorated in keeping with " the wearing of the green " our gym, filled with dads and daughters, resounded the sentimental strains of I want a man just like the man who married dear old Mom. " Long in the memory of Elmites will be the spirit of this day — " On this day, O beautiful Mother " on this day we give them our love. A very special occasion on Mary ' s Calendar is the Mother- Daughter Day, one dear to elated Elmites who proudly say, " 1 want you to meet my Mother. " She reigns supreme for this day, sharing with Our Lady of the Elms for several precious hours the " spirit of this place " -- EATHER-DAUGHTER DAY 16 Father Pierce enlightens seniors on the mysteries of the married state in " Marriage Guidance " class.

When all the joys and laughter came our way To strengthen all the love our heart endears. See! Juniors swelled with pride, the day had come. The long awaited day and lingers stretched To view the ring that sparkled on each one, A symbol, dream, that college days had etched. You can t efface, no matter how you try. The reveries that flash before your eye. Behold! A silvered night, the darkened skies. Which sparkled in a world of starry light. Where Juniors danced, magicians in disguise. While hearts sang you, the music, and the night. Retrace the steps you ' ve taken one by one. The concerts, banquets, books, exams, and all. The happiness, sorority, and fun. Those little things too endless to recall. And now we grasp the helm at our command. As Seniors we begin another reign. The daisies that we hold within our hand Are symbols of the links that bind the chain. Yes! happy are the dreams we can retell. And beautiful the joys that us befell. Mary E.

Satisfaction oozed from every pore when we felt the plaudits and bouquets awarded our " Sophomore Debut " . Praise-was offered to our senior sisters for a delightful Elmata Dance enjoyed by all attending. Mirth-and merriment tinkled through the parties, concerts, and " stair-sing " which heralded the advent of the Christmas sea- son. Gloom-pervaded the " Elmstrata " as semes- ter exams interrupted an otherwise peace- ful existence. Ingenuity-displayed by the Junior Class in their exquisite prom decorations was admired by all to the tune of " You and the Night and the Music. " Affection-coupled with mutual pride beamed fiom the faces of falhci and daughtci alike as we feted our Dads at their annual March banquet. Sanctity-glowed from every nook and niche after our valuable retreat filled us with spiritual zest. Rhythm-rippled heavenward as our Glee Club combined musical notations with Provi- dence College to give us a delightful tonal treat. Love-lingered long in the air when our Moms were Queens and we begged the Queen of all mothers to bestow her choicest bless- ings upon them. Hope-dotted our sad goodbyes lor although our " sisters " were leaving, we would strive to emulate their standards and, if not take their place, at least, carve a niche for the Class of ' 54. Result: Our d iverse reactions and moods tended to increase and intensify our esprit de corps and to make Sophomore Year not only the gayest but also the best. lime ) .

" Chapter II War Begins. Foreign Policy Attempted September 20th was the day of the expected attack of the " Books. " The enemy looked in- vulnerable. The Freshmen wondered if they had entered upon a foolhardy war. They were outnumbered ten to one, religion, English, math, German, physics, chemistry, history, music, art, and gym against each poor Freshman. Bravely they faced the enemy, knowing that they could not disappoint the people on the home front. The casualty list remained empty as ammuni- tion (food and money) was sent to the battle front from the folks back home. To increase their strength, the allies decided to extend their foreign poli cy to China. China had representatives at the Elms. These repre- FiRST ROW— c.

Because of the cruelty of the Chinese Mandarins to the Freshmen Coolies the policy was discontinued, by mutual agreement, at a general assembly on the evening of September 29th, alter only four days of existence. To show that there were no hard feelings between the Seniors and Fresh- men, the Seniors presented their former Coolies with green and gold OLE caps. The colors were those under which these troops were fighting. Chapter III Members Oi The Junior Class Promise Support The junior Class issued an invitation to the Freshman Class to attend an important meeting at Blake ' s on the date of October 21st. At ex- actly three o ' clock the meeting came to order. At this meeting, which for all practical purposes is recorded by historians as the " Junior-Fresh- man Tea, " the Juniors offered much encourage- ment to the battle-worn Freshmen and promised them dauntless support in all their undertak- ings. Chapter IV Allies Celebrate After Big Victory During the month of November many bat- tles were fought, nearly all of which were won by the allies. They were so elated over their victory in the Battles of the Quarterlies, as these November campaigns were called, that a big dance was held in the OLE gym. Nearly all the fighters attended this dance, and it was there that they forgot the trying days of the war and enjoyed this well-deserved celebration over which the OLE Banner waved and amidst which reigned a huge horn of plenty. Chapter V A Short Armistice, Renewal Of The War And Dedication To Our Lady A five day armistice was signed on Novem- ber 21st in order to allow all troops to spend Thanksgiving Day with their families. On No- vember 26th, however, the war began anew in all its fury. It was in the midst of this battle that the allies realized that if the Freshmen were to succeed they must dedicate themselves to the service of Our Blessed Mother, so on December 10th, the entire student body assembled in the Chapel and the Freshmen were received into the Sodality of Our Lady at a very impressive ceremony. Now all the allies belonged to the greatest sodality of all, and victory began to come more easily. Chapter VI Another Armistice Is Signed December 18th was the date of another armistice, which had been decided upon so that the birth of Christ might be celebrated in peace. After the signing of the armistice at a banquet in the OLE gym, the allies gathered on the stairs of O ' Leary Hall to sing Christmas Carols. Im- mediately following breakfast the next morning, all the students started for home on furlough. Chapter VII The Fighting Begins Again January 4th, 1952 marked the renewal of the War of the Books. The battles were long and relentless as the greatest battles of fhe war were drawing near. From January 21st to Jan- uary 26th, eight overpowering battles took place. Because of fheir severity, both the allies and the enemy were in need of a rest, so another lapse in the battles took place from Jan- uary 26th to February 4th when once again the war began. It continued with severe battles and short armistices until the Freshmen finally came out victorious from their War of the Books, on the day of June second, J952. ( ' (lirr 1 .

They gave evidence of their apprecia- tion by ready interest in the prescribed courses and other programs. Many times we remember their help and clarifications in our discussions of the moral law in courts and hospitals. Their actual ex- periences made real the words of the theses in our Ethics book. We also know that each led a busy workday after the school day ended. The initiative and ambition shown in such a quiet and unpreten- tious manner have indicated to us a special spirit of endeavor. Miss Moran, Mrs. Kelly, Miss Cashman and Miss Brochu will be recipients of a B.S. in Nurs- ing this June. 116 I (dun, nae C(s sociation FRONT ROW— M, CLIFFORD, E, SULLIVAN. SECOND ROW— F.

We want you to know and feel that each one of you is vitally important to the Alumnae Association. Each has a talent to offer, a gift to be shared. Each has youth, spirit, and enthusiasm so necessary for a growing organization devoted to furthering and upholding the ideals of Our Lady of the Elms. Assisted by members of the Class of 1952 we are looking forward to a year of outstanding accomplishments in 1952-53. Welcome to the Alumnae Association of the College of Our Lady of the Elms.

Santa and little helpers and a play reflecting the true meaning of the Holy Season added to our festiv- ities. Christmas at Mount St. Vincent, toys and trinkets sent to far-away Indian children and the saving of postage stamps for the foreign CHRISTMAS PLAY CAST missions were successful undertakings of our active Mission Committee. Outstanding in the calendar of social events is the Coffee Hour held under the auspices of the " Literary Club. " Rev. Francis B. Thornton, guest speaker, spoke on a brace of Catholic authors. The lecture was followed by a coffee hour in the library, under the direction of Mary Roche, chairman of the committee. Musical se- lections were offered by the A Cappella choir.

At monthly meetings conducted by Senior Delegate, Maura O ' Brien, Elmites are informed of the various activities in which the organiza- tion IS engaged, such as the Program for Over- seas Relief on behalf of which Ellen Diggins, OSP chairman on compus, conducted a suc- cessful inter class drive for funds to aid needy foreign children. During the year Elms delegates attended con- ferences at St. Joseph ' s College, Hartford; New- ton College of the Sacred Heart and St. An- selm ' s College.

Mary Hroszowy, Regional Liturgy Chairman, conducted a program featuring a dramatization of the Mass by Rev. Francis P. Moran, editor of the Pilot. In addition to the Liturgy panel, four- teen federation workgroups convened for morn- ing and afternoon sessions. Approximately fifty Elmites attended the convention. In January, Kathryn Larrow attended the Na- tional Council meeting in Chicago where the National Liturgy Commission held by the Elms obtained a favorable rating. 124 MISSION COMMISSION Highlighting this year ' s activities was the Religious Interest Group Workshop held on our campus in the fall. The problem of re-christian- izing the world and possible solutions for the accomplishment of this objective were empha- sized at the discussions which were attended by delegates from twenty-one New England colleges. Among the guest speakers were Father Ed- mund Walsh of Florence, Father Raymond Pot- vin of Springfield, and Mrs. Mary Reed New- land, housewife-mother-author, whose topic was " Liturgy in the Home.

FINN cS uJen Q overnnien Student government, in a modified form, was adopted as a tentative project early in the first semester, and it succeeded so well that it was continued for the rest of the year. The modified form was made necessary by the lack of a con- stitution. In place of the student council which would operate under a constitution, this year ' s gov- ernment had a student board composed of eigh- feen members. Maura O ' Brien, senior delegate of the NFCCS, served as president of the Board, and Annette Rafferty, Sodality Prefect, as secre- tary; the officers of all four classes were fhe other members. Among tfie activities of the Board was the appointment of procfors for the Administration Building, the various dormitories, the dining room, the smoker and off-campus. The function of the proctors was to prevent violations of the rules as much as possible and to award de- merits for any violations that did occur. Any student who acquired three demerits in one month went before the Board to be penalized. At a general assembly in February, the con- stitution committee was elected by ballot vote. This committee was composed of two seniors, three juniors, two sophomores, and two fresh- men, and had the president of the student board as a nonvoting member. The student council for next year was se- lected at the conclusion of the second semester. 12G — — — L i FRONT ROW— K. LYNCH, J. BA!LLARGEON, M. ROCHE SECOND ROW— M, KENNEDY, F. DONELAN, M.

It fulfills the need of rewarding those who have successfully combined scho- lastic achievement, capable leadership and character growth. Thus, Alpha Kappa Chapter of Delta Epsilon Sigma has made a choice this year to which we assent with just pride, for the Catholic honor society has selected for membership a group whose contributions to Elms spirit and society are numerous. On March 30 the induction cere- mony, under the direction of Jeanne Bourque, Chapter President, was held in the Lounge of O ' Leary Hall, and consisted of an explanation of the bylaws and aims of the society and the presentation of the gold keys and certificates of membership to the new members. The guest speaker for the occasion was Rev. Daniel M. Galliher, O P., registrar of Providence College. May those, thus lauded, be in- spired to the realization that such an honor brings with it a corresponding duty — " to set things in order " and from this realization may great things accrue. 127 C.

A Christ- mas tour ol concerts in surrounding cities cli- maxed by one in Veritas Auditorium is the Glee Club ' s contribution to the spirit ol the Yuletide.

Intramurals began immediately after Christmas vacation and culminated in the finals on St. Patrick ' s Day.

This year the club accomplished its dual pur- pose with movies and lectures concerning vari- ous phases of the scientific field. The first movie, " Unfinished Rainbows, " told the story of the development of relatively cheap methods of producing aluminum and demonstrated many of the uses of this metal. Carbohydrates and research work were the subjects of other movies. A film concerning the latter was shown in conjunction with a lecture given by Mr. C. H.

PARTICIPATION 141 f etn eat There comes a tune when everyone has need of a spiritual reawakening. At the Elms a cer tain time is set aside each year for a spiritual retreat, a period for consideration and strength- ening of resolutions regarding our spiritual wel fare. It is a time of silence, of prayer and of meditation. This year the retreat was under the direction of Fr. Edward V. Winsper, S.J. whose direct and penetrating conferences aided greatly in the accomplishment of thorough spiritual inveii tories for all those who entered wholeheartedly into the exercises. Rev Edward V. Winsper, S.f. T. Paquette, T. Quinlan and C. McCarthy chat with Fr. Winsper after a conference. 142 This year ' s lecture series was illuminated by many interesting and informative speeches cov- ering a varied and vast range of topics. Communism and its evils were treated by Rev. Feodor Wilcock who explained the ne- cessity of a counterattack by informed Cath- olics. He stated that the day is not long in coming when we will be called upon to help restore Russia and its people to Catholicism. The characters and lives of the first ladies of America were vividly portrayed by Grace Bush who interspersed her program with original poems and piano selections. Social problems in the United States formed the core of a talk delivered by Fr. John F. Cron- in, S.S. in which he specified the opportunities available to Catholics to aid in the betterment of social conditions. Paul Blanshard ' s attacks on the Church were enumerated and refuted by Professor J. M. O ' Neil in a solid defense taken from his own writings on the subject.

MANDARIN GENDRON PUTS COOLIES THROUGH PACES Last September the campus of OLE was mi- raculously transformed into the Province-Far- Removed-From-Foo-Ling. The Empresses Bowler and Scanlon reigned supreme, and haughty Mandarins roamed the halls while quivering Coolies scraped and bowed. But the reign was short-lived, and on Elms Night the Mandarins changed back into seniors, proudly and tear- fully bestowing the caps of " belonging " upon the liberated and newly-instated freshmen. All vestiges of the mythical and mirthful province disappeared from OLE and only the laughter remained. " OH, THE JOY AND THE SPIRIT HERE " 145 ap anci ( o s ' i ANTICIPATION Verdant dreams of our freshmen hearts slowly had ripened into golden realities the day was His Feast and they were our caps and gowns. Yet, despite the queenly dignity bestowed on us by the donning of our academic robes, and beneath serenely proud expressions of seniors, never before were we ever so keenly conscious of our childlike dependence on Him. For this was the beginning of the end of our col- lege careers, achieved not by our efforts alone, but through, with and in Christ, this day and everyday, our King.

McCarthy, p. hogan In planting a tree we trust that God will nourish its roots, we trust that God will send the sunshine to make it bud. For everything in this l ife we must have faith in God, for it is God Who gives us life itself. Unless we were confident that God would be with us every minute of every day, our lives would be filled with anxiety for if God forgot us for an instant we would cease to exist. Now God gives this tree existence, making it part of His Divine plan. Therefore, since God is infinitely wise, He will shower it with gentle rains, will give it those things necessary for the life of a tree. The tree can give glory to God for this gift of existence by merely being a tree. The tree does not decide whether or not it will glorify God, whether or not it will love God. From the essence of the tree God receives glory, for a tree adds to the beauty of the world around us, a world which must be created by a Supreme Being. We, as created beings, by the very act of our creation give extrinsic glory to God. Be- cause of the perfection of our nature we can determine how much glory we can give and what attitude we will take in praising the Author of Nature. We can limit ourselves to external glory, as the tree, or we can add to this and work for God. We can sacrifice, we can adore, we can petition, and in doing so, increase the external honor of God. Since God gave us life, and since He is with us every day, it should be our aim in life to give as much honor to God as we can. The choice of our state in life will determine our attitude in glorifying God. Those who choose to be brides of Christ, in the convent life, will give praise by their sacrifice of worldly things, by the adoration of their daily Masses and prayers. Those who will be mothers will have many heartaches to place in God ' s hands and many hurried prayers to send heavenward. Those who will make their way in the world will by ethical business dealings and by sin- cere adoration of God, give example to those about them. If we trust in God and have eternity as our goal, our lives will be joyous and blessed and we will honor Him until at last we attain that perfection to which He has destined us. luiscmary A. Dii ycr 153 !Pen sive . U a use Four short years ago we stood, awe-struck, gazing for the first time at the stately tower of the Administration Building, the gracious arches of O ' Leary, the tiny preciousness of the Chapel and the tree-lined pathway to the grotto. We were filled with the spirit of wonder — this was the Elmsl As days and years passed by these places became more and more familiar to us. With them the customs and traditions of OLE be- came the ordinary things. The little things were overlooked and only the major incidents affected us as middle classmen. Then suddenly. Senior year was upon us. Each part of OLE took on a new significance. This was our last year — each party, each cele- bration, each duty was to be our final offering to our Alma Mater. A spirit of melancholy over- came us and we resolved to make each moment last, draining from it each ounce of sweetness to stay in our memories through the long years to come. Yes, we were the Seniors! At first it was a little awkward to hold the lofty post that we had wondered at for so many years. But the duty was ours, and we had to fulfill it. Being Seniors, like all who had gone before us, we chose the Freshmen as the first upon whom our new position was to be exercised. Gra- ciously they consented to forget themselves and become coolies for a week. They bowed and scraped, swept and dusted, smiled behind tightly clenched teeth and in general proved to us that they were a pretty wonderful class. At Sophomore show time we sat back hope- fully, memories of our circus still warm within us, and waited for our sister class to display their talents. Well rewarded we were, for the Soph album was something to behold. We were a little reassured at this time, for though this show was to be our last, we were leaving the duty in competent hands. Our eyes, at the fall of the curtain, were only a little moist. INITIATION ' 48 — COV ERING FRESHMEN 154 INITIATION ' 50 — COMMANDING SENIORS One thing all Seniors gratefully leave be- hind without a touch of sadness are the omni- present blue-books. These memories are ones that smile, and it ' s with a chuckle that we be- queath all our long exams to our sister Elmites. Needless to say, we shall jealously want to keep all the knowledge that these studies pro- duced. That is a heritage that one must work to acquire. Last moments and last events seem to fly by swiftly during Senior year. The candle-light supper at Christmastime will ever be a memory we shall hold dear. The voices of classmates raised in song from the intimate stair-sing to the formal Glee Club concert make the Elms a " singing " souvenir to retain. Junior prom days, filled with bustling activity beforehand and wistful sighs for days after- wards will always be a trademark of CLE. Its dreamy spirit seems to float about the halls until that magnificent evening of the Senior Ball. That unequaled day, reserved only for the lucky few who fill the ranks of seniority, will always stand apart as having that special " something " that just can ' t be put into words. Yes, four short years ago it started and now with Commencement Week it reaches its poignant culmination. Eyes of Seniors are un- ashamedly more than moist and hands are warm as they clasp younger hands in farewell. Nostalgia is in the air as the Seniors roam for the last times the familiar nooks and crannies of the campus. The Chapel is filled with those who have sought refuge there so many times before — in joy and in trouble. Here is found the single possession that one can retain for a lifetime. The strains of the graduation march chime forth and Seniors go, step by step, to receive the mark of their achievement. Within them the feelings of gratitude to parents, faculty and school are mixed with the tenderness of friend- ship and the sadness of farewell. Cur days at CLE are over. We have been pledged to honor her ever — that pledge will never be broken. Jean M. ll(iill(ir ( on 155 Preamble We, the Senior Class ol nineteen hundred and fifty-two, weary and worn from four years of diligent study and labor, yet serene in the knowledge that we have reached our goal, wish to leave with you, our dearest friends, these, our most treasured possessions. We hereby declare this to be the last will and testament of the class of 1952. Article I To his Excellency, The Most Reverend Chris- topher I. Weldon, our president, we leave our pledge of fidelity and a promise to uphold his teachings in the years to come. Article II To Reverend Doctor lohn R. Rooney, our vice- president, IS left our heartfelt thanks for the help he has tendered us these four years, along with our sincere wishes and prayers for con- tinued good health. Article III To the Sisters of St Joseph we leave our eternal gratitude and appreciation for the many services which they so willingly rendered and a sincere prayer for God ' s blessings on them. Article IV To the faculty we leave an earnest desire to show in ourselves the fruits of their teaching. Article V To Karen Boden are left Francis Ferrari ' s Sunrise Serenades and before breakfast laughter. ' 52 ' s expert driver, Mary Mahoney, leaves those two lamp posts near Beaven for someone else to knock down. Annemarie Donley actually leaves her pet expressions to anyone who is ever at a loss for words. Her quiet little chuckle is left by Theresa Quinlan to Ellen Dunn. DAISY CHAIN Madelyn leaves Dr. Gadaire the prospects of a quiet class next year. Alison Chunn leaves her skiing gear complete with plaster cast and crutches to Mary Jane Cummings. Jean Baillargeon ' s strong attraction to any- thing " red " is bequeathed to Betty May. Julia Dunphy ' s appetite for anything edible, especially lobster newburg, is passed on to Ruth Crowley. Louise Menard leaves " Dora Duck " to keep the other two " Duckies " company. Our own expert of the modern dance, Dolores Murphy, leaves her rendition of the " hula-hop " to Lucille Morin. Rosemary Dwyer and Marie Tangney leave tlie school still standing after their year of frenzied experiments with T.N.T. To Audrey Kelly is left Pat Hogan ' s constant punctuality. Reverend Mother Kathleen Keating ' s enor- mous collection of movie magazines is left to Betty Ferry. In memory of the Hotel Lenox, Maura O ' Brien leaves a pass key to Mary Fitzpatrick, so she ' ll never be locked out of a hotel room again. Shirley Smith leaves the privacy of her centrally located cube to Noreen O ' Melia. Joan Foley leaves her love of university " life " to Mary Danaher. Mary Catherine Murphy, who always thought she was too tall, leaves a few needed inches to Betty Ann Cahill. Mary Healy leaves sister Jane to one more year at O.L.E. all by herself. .Maureen Splaine and Tess Ondrick leave their Springfield College connections to Peggy Britt. Joan Cleary bequeaths all her kitchen utensils to Ellen Dalgleisch. Maureen Moynihan ' s good health is left to anyone who doesn ' t like to take pills. The giggle sisters: Peggy Bouyea, Theresa Maney and Angie Posco leave their peculiar talent to Elaine Hoar. FOR 1951 Marguerite Slattery who is suspected of hav- ing two personalities leaves her sweet inno- cence to Mary Dryden. Ireland ' s own gift to the Elms, Sue Carell, leaves her blarney to Gloria Todaro. Betty Ann Smith ' s busy " free " hours are left to anyone who can equal her school spirit. With a sparkle in their eyes to match the one on their hands Jane Cowles, Shirley Decoteau and Kay Lynch leave lots of advice and hope for all. The girl with the " model look " , Bernice Rzasa, leaves her taste for style to Valerie Walsh. Alma Uriarte leaves her preference for linen to Anabel Padilla. Mary Crane bequeaths all her dining room - demerit slips to Jean Fournier. Chosen " Miss Classroom Manager of 1952 " by a unanimous vote, Carol Finn passes this title on to Peg Fitzgerald. Dot O ' Connor and Helen Baceski relinquish their corner table in the " Caf " to Ann Marie Smyth and Shirley Paine. To Peg Lynch is left Mary Danis ' affiliation with Holy Cross. Peg Doyle ' s service with a smile to all cus- tomers is left to the next proprietor of the sand- wich stand in the " Caf " . Carol Burke ' s theme song " Com ' On a My House " is bequeathed to Moe Bryson. To Helen Nee goes Betty Gendron ' s admir- able quality of being frank about everything. Betty Leahy leaves a new holder for that fire extinguisher — compliments of Leahy ' s Dairy. Mary Roche ' s inimitable impersonations are left to anyone who dares. Theresa Paquette leaves her soapbox for future study-hall orators. Pat Scanlon, Claire Cartier and Joan O ' Brien leave a sincere hope that someone will install a taxi service from Chicopee Center to the Elms for all weary Holyoke travelers. Eileen McCarthy leaves her Nantucket tales to all who aspire to the art of waitressing. Ann McElroy who gets an " A " for effort leaves her knitting needles and her nearly finished blue sweater to Eleanor McFadden. Arleen Holmes is the lucky recipient of Ginny Bajorin ' s statuesque grace. Margaret Rose leaves " Scanny ' s Cranny " complete with standing room in the closet to Anne Shaughnessy and Ellen Mayoral. Barbara Sullivan leaves encouragement to any Elmite who thinks she may find her " future " in the Marines. Magazine girl, Connie McCarthy, leaves her weekly package to Mildred Aleskevich for prompt service to all study-hall subscribers.

Grace Hayden ' s wandering shoes have all been retrieved and are now Peg Lynch s property. To Carol English are left all the qualities of Peg Flynn, which make her ' 52 ' s perfect lady. Clairanne Lucas ' ability to get the " inside scoop " on all things of vital interest is left tc Sally Gagnier.

Fran Donelan ' s subtle wit as only she can render it, is left to another subtle miss, Cecile McDonnell. Phyllis Kossakoski and Anna Gibbons leave their tresses of gold to Nancy O ' Connor if she ever needs long hair.

Marguerite Quinn ' s calm and peaceful temperament is bequeathed to Laurie Stearns. Catherine Connelly leaves her complete volume of original jokes with explanations to Helen Pratt. To all our friends, the Senior Class leaves its best wishes for as happy a four years at O.L.E. as we have had, and ask only for a kind thought and prayer once in a while from you- Having thus disposed of all of our dearest possessions, we place our seal to this document in this year of Our Lord nineteen hundred and fifty-two. The Senior Class of the College of Our Lady of the Elms Joan h. lidit liT Class Attorney SENIOR BALL COMMITTEE d. ass f ronh )l)necij Gosh, here I am after ten years, still running my old taxi-stand. It really seems funny — haven ' t had a call all day, I wonder if that littfe smash-up I had yesterday with the Mayor ' s car has anything to do with it ' i’ Well, no sense in worrying, " Out of every evil cometh some good. " It gives me some time to think back O. L. E. the old gang of ' 52 — and, oh yes, most vivid of all. Class Day my prophecy amidst the weeping and the priceless express- ions what was it I said After ten years of working on an afghan, fanie Cowles (we were bosom buddies) finally took the " step " and it wasn’t too long then when Claire Cartier, who daily denied the bliss of such a life, married Count Daigneault of Southern France. They said he was a distant rela- tive of some Middle-Age trou badour. Botli of them were products of Teresa Paquette ' s Marriage School. Her " Plan for a Purposeful and Peaceful Wedded Life " includes lessons on bread-baking, milking and management of " separate " bank accounts. Mrs. liinmy Culver (remember our own Kay Lynch?) has replaced Mrs. Newland on Integrity ' s contributing staff, but still has time to care for five little Culvers. The story has it that she and Mary Kennedy became rivals when Mary was finally made editor of Torch, which last week published a review of Frances Donelan ' s new book " Crusade for Com- pline. " And for those of you interested in new spots for summer vacationing, read Eileen McCarthy s ad in the travel section of the New York Times. She has opened a fabulously fashionable re- sort on Nantucket. " Mad " Harte, who won fame for a hit Broadway play " Not to Eat and Yet to Live, " is featured at the piano during the month of August only. Their old pal Anna from Blackstone, I ' ve heard, delayed her matri- monial plans to give a much needed course on using the teachers ' register at B. U. Working at the same school are Grace Hayden, Margaret Rose Scanlon and Sue Carell who invented the revolutionary educational device, " Helper for Those Hard of Hearing. " Speaking of traveling, Nobel Prize winners in science, Helen Baceski and Alma Lfriarte flew from Genoa last week after a month s con- sultation with foreign alchemist experts on the subject of converting lead into gold. On the same plane was Mary Roche, the first American woman to be presented a plaque by Jacques Maritain, for her outstanding publication " Sim- plifying Anthropologic Evolution. " I under- stand the now retired philosopher, the Most Rev. Father Stafford, was a great help to her. Some years ago, Pat Hogan devised a new type of writing for business firms " The Hogan Small Script " which has netted her a steady income ever since. Her friend, Pat Scanlon, with Rhode Island ' s Mary Danis, made nation- wide headlines when they replaced Bob Cousy and Ed McCauley as stars of the Boston Celtics — a sure sign that women are rapidly coming to the fore in sports. If you have been awe-stricken by Life Maga- zine ' s amazing photographs of Living in Lake- ville, thank Carol Finn — or is the name still Finn ' i’ The article with the pictures mentioned Shirley Smith and Alison Chunn have estab- lished in Lakeville one of their sweeping-the-nation restaurants " Pizza-a-Plenty " Howard John- sons are definitely passe. They ' re having trouble, though with another chain owned by Carol Burke who has put on the market " Mother Hubbard ' s Handy Pizza Kit for the Home, " Joan Bowler just last week sold her interest in the chain to accept a position as USO executive in Germany. Do you know what Mary Crane is doing? She became so attached to the job of proctoring in our dining room she accepted the position of woman warden at Charlestown State Prison. According to a letter from her inseparable col- lege chum, Annette Rafferty, wh o startled edu- cational institutions far and wide when, due to papal dispensation, she became the first female teacher at Holy Cross, Cranie is extremely happy. Incidentally, Therese Quinlan, who has re- placed Arlene Francis on TV with that golden voice and pleasing personality, has won her Uncle Miltie ' s spot in our hearts. A week ago Colonel Barbara Sullivan of the U. S. Women ' s Marine Corps made an appeal on the program for new recruits. Gung-ho, everyone! Barbara ' s old room mate, Ginnie Bajorin, although happily married and mother of seven young ones, is the successful proprietor of Worcester ' s exclusive " Smarte Shoppe for All Sizes. " She and Marie Tangney, who may be named the second lay theologian in the States (she took that course in Sacred Theology), still find a few hours to work on the perfection of the slide rule. 158 Much to the surprise of all, Betty Leahey, who was dedicated to G. E. and Farm life, changed her mind and opened a bookstore in Lee, the first of its kind anywhere. As literary editor of Commonweal (she replaced Riley Hughes) Kay Keating sends Betty her selection for the ten best books of the week. Among her selections this week was Phil Kossakoski ' s historical hit " From Hamp to Holland and Back. " This reminds me that Fran Ferrari, talented " thrush " and teacher, recently dazzled intellec- tual circles everywhere with her Italian transla- tion of Beaudelaire ' s peotry, " Amazing " com- mented the critics. " Connell " (that ' s Kay Connelly), who has been one of the brains of the country for some years, was named to the board of " Twenty Questions, " a veritable honor indeed. Their " pal " Jean Baillargeon Egan, who was Model Wife and Mother last year, is now illustrating children ' s books which are being run off on the Healy Press. Mr. Healy has retired (and deservedly so) after putting three daughters through OLE, and daughter Mary is now handling all affairs. I hear tell that Julie Dunphy and Annemarie Donley don ' t see too much of each other any more. " Jules " is now a busy housewife living near Boston, while Annemarie contrary to all expectations, has opened a military academy in upper New York State — a job that occupies most of her time. Glen ' s Falls ' rumors have it that Joan Holleran has worked her way into journalistic prominence. She did a feature on the Pittsfield Home for the Poor, established and run by sociologists par excellence, Mary Kay Murphy and Betty Ann Smith. When Baroness de Hueck, because of ill health, left Friendship House, Catholic Univers- ity replaced her with capable Maura O ' Brien. Not only skilled in sociological affairs, Maura has become an expert in aiding colleges com- pose constitutions for student government. H. Louise IS another woman in the news. With husband " Remy " she has designed a new streamlined tractor that has put Harvester and Company to commercial shame. OLE ' s classical department informs me that it no longer has to worry about ordering Latin text translations — thanks to Katie Murphy and Angela Posco ' s collaboration of talent and time which resulted in the twentieth century ver- sion of Cicero and Livy. Moreover, Marguerite Quinn, the friend of those who really need a friend, (Latin majors) has written " Ten Easy Lessons on Latin and Greek. " And from the Valley comes the news that Liz Gendron has at last completed the long-awaited, long-desired paraphrasation of Geoffrey Chaucer. Here ' s good news for Spanish students struggling with the Anthology of Spanish Literature. Bernice Rzasa, Theresa Maney and Clairanne Lucas put their heads together and after five full years of labor have edited a trans- lation. Down with the archaic Espanol ahoral In Vogue magazine (I do read it occasionally now though Mr. Lomask lives on the next farm.) were featured new styles for ' 62 and, believe it or not, there on page 63 were Del Murphy, Tess Ondrick and Peg Bouyea modeling shorty raccoon coats. It did my heart good to see them so stylish-like. That same issue did an article on Elmite career women successful in all fields. Dot O ' Connor and Ann McElroy have done wonders in biological research while Joan SENIOR BALL 159 Cleary and Shirley Decoteau have set Rocke- feller Center on fire -- figuratively, that is. The ECA and European Defence Bill have taken a back seat to a new program passed this week by Congress The Upper Bouban- ian Restoration Act. Constance McCarthy and Maureen Moynihan, noted stateswomen, were the authors of the program. Most of their source material in sociological conditions existing in Upper Boubania, however, was pro- vided by loan Foley, Maureen Splaine and Marguerite Slattery who set out on on expedi- tion to that region some six years ago and have effected remarkable internal improvements there. All this news was released by U- S. spokeswoman in Europe, Rosemary Dwyer, who replaced Eisenhower during his ' 52 presi- dential campaign. Last week ' s mail brought me a copy of the Worcester Tech publication and there on the front page was Peg Flynn, being awarded an engineering prize by no one less than Admiral Cluverius. The article did not mention for what type engineering course the award was being offered Along with the paper came a large pamphlet announcing the spring opening of Peg Doyle ' s " Come and Get It Cafeteria " with music to be provided not by juke box but by Joan O’Brien ' s citified hill-billy band. — That ' s what I said on Class Day ten years ago. Strange, but except for a few predictions, they were as ridiculous as they were meant to be. Still I can ' t help wondering what did become of them all. Well, what do you know, a call for a taxi — must be an out-of-towner who doesn ' t read the newspapers! Mary I . Mahnnf COMMENCEMENT WEEK OFFICERS 160 oem Spirit is here wherever you may look, Now standing by the gate, And there swinging high up in the elm tree. See! Spirit is peering at us through the window. In spring it skips along the grotto path With lady-slippered feet. And in the meadow on wintry nights Spirit dances with the snowflakes. Then high above our tower sits upon the moon To comb its starry tresses down the sky. At dawn it wakes us singing with the bluebird. At dusk its lovely head bows low with us in Angelus. Spirit is here everywhere. Look now, friend, it is touching your face. Mary ' . I k k 161 Music by MADELYN HARTE Words by MARY F.
