Flashing pictures from prism-shaped lights rush before our eyes unfolding a year spent in varying pursuits. Magic memory conjures files of painted images which lose themselves swiftly beneath our hesitating gaze. Uncertain at the maze, we catch just a few and place them here for all to see and remember. There are other days not recorded here. The human element forbids that these reminders match exactly the memories within us. That is why when planning this book we chose an idea corresponding to the sketch-like reality of such a presentation and called our theme REFLECTIONS. ■I r i ■LJJ j y Mmd m h College of Our Lady of The Elms Chicopee, Massachusetts al n,eca iclexll by the (jAaducUel in The 1958 Clmata I Id the lixflitd 0-jj (Dub jHady ' d Chapel I refled (lie life within, so we too, reflect the truth received . . . GaltUuj, iltado-uii. 0 1 ou i camfuti With the passing of the seasons, the sun in her celes tial travels discovers new angles from which to approach the earth and in doing so casts various semblances on the wide lawns of our campus. September emblazes the campus with the fiery gold of autumn, and days cast shorter shadows upon the year’s denouement. Winter arrives with her quiet family and overcomes our world with blankets of snow and swift, gray days. Spring at last, and the campus is so transformed with wonder that students leave their desks and turn to the study of the rebirth of life. Then, just as nature’s promise is about to be fulfilled, summer arrives and casts the year’s most fruitful reflections, and we leave her shadows behind us to follow the lights of our own fruition. O ' LEARY HALL, the Sophomore-Junior residence, is also the center of much of the dormitory life on campus. GROTTO FINDS Our lady patiently watch- ing over the campus in all weather. SENIOR WING of a future dorm gave its first welcome this year to the class of ' 58. WHITE BIRCHES cast their corresponding shadows as Students take advantage of a natural skating area near the Senior dormitory. 7 IriJe belted credit wb ie credit id. due. And so, wearing tlie treasured Cap and Gown and holding in Tourmaline-graced hands the long awaited diploma, we turn to you, beloved parents for— Finis Goronat Opus— the end has crowned your work. Truly we have achieved, and yet the achievement is more yours than ours. Years ago the strong tree that is your love branched out and reaching to the heavens brought forth a tiny blossom of feminine life. How well you knew that before this bud could grow to rich maturity its youthful petals must be lost one by one. Tenderly your patience steadied us with gradually increasing responsibilities; and easily, painlessly, we shed the days of our carefree childhood. The blustery winds of a March-like adolescence, the April showers of youthful disappointments, successfully endured under your watchful guidance, brought us a deepening realization of our obligations and potential. Then, in the Maytime of our maturity, with your approval, we dedicated our four years of college to Mary, patroness of Our Lady of the Elms. Here the fruit of your love was brought to a firm and ripe maturity. It is June now and we are women, ready to accept what life will bring. Rooted in Christ through Mary, we step into the world amid a host of warm congratulations— but it is you, dear parents, who deserve them. “By their fruits you shall know them.’ If, then, we are worthy of this honor, or by our efforts have merited an award, it is merely that we reflect you, our loving parents; and so, in token of our appreciation WE DEDICATE OUR ELMATA TO YOU. SISTER ROSE WILLIAM, Dean of Studies , checks schedules with Seniors Jo-Anne MacDonald and Kathleen Finn. From the first moment that we step into college, curriculum becomes so much a part of our lives that our reflections seem always to be tied up with it some way. In thinking back, we find that our study was so central to our college pursuits that we never strayed too far afield from it. Thus, our faculty was also of great importance to us and any reflection would be incomplete without a survey of them and the studies they directed. 12 ADMINISTRATION ScO U fJoAeflU Sister Anna Cecilia Mathematics Sister Florence Joseph Librarian, Education Sister Helen Clare French, Spanish Sister Helen Joseph English Sister Ignatius Loyola English Sister James Mary English, German, Journalism Sister John Martha Sociology Sister Lawrence Marie Music Sister Margaret James Biology Sister Maria Maurice Chemistry, Physics Most Reverend Christopher J.

Here at the Elms, patient instruction and self-application has brought us to a greater knowledge and consequently a greater appreciation of the rich Catholic heritage that is ours. Our four years of religious studies embrace both the theoretical and the practical. An excellent example of the practical aspect is the Marriage Guidance course offered to Seniors. The study of Religion has truly inspired us in our efforts to follow One who grew in “wisdom, age, and grace.” SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE is given to us each morning as Father Pierce, our Chaplain, delivers an inspiring explanation of the Mass. REVEREND THOMAS B, PIERCE REVEREND JOSEPH A. BURKE CAUGHT ON the way to class, Father Burke is seen talking with Freshmen Peggy Fitzgerald and Sally McCormick. REVEREND ROBERT H. STAFFORD ADVANCED PSYCHOLOGY for Seniors finds Father Stafford in a typical classroom scene. Order is reflected in created things and philosophy pursues this order. Three years of Thomistic study have brought us nearer to those understandings which direct a better way of life. Seniors culminate their program by examining various forms of morality and the nature of the human act and influences which affect it. ALWAYS RELAXED, Father Viau pauses for this picture during a Senior Ethics class. FATHER DEVINE explains a question in Child Psychology notes for Judy Boulanger and Peggy Wallace. REVEREND THOMAS F. DEVINE “Learning that others might learn”— Educational methods courses, enriched by studies of child and educational psychologies, are brought to practical focus during actual classroom observations and the expe- rience of practice teaching. This year our future teachers gained added pointers through a workshop with neighboring colleges on the problems of the beginning teacher. REVEREND VINCENT O ' CONNER Live me your tired, your poor . . . send these, the tired, tempest-tossed to me . . Sociology, the department with a heart, the lady science with her helpmate Social Work, prepares students for active service among the poor, the needy, and the afflicted of the world in one of the most versatile of major fields. PUTTING NEWLY learned interviewing techniques to work are Sociology majors Lois Lambert, Ann Marie Daly, Marilyn Riley, and Nancy Keegan as they lerwe for a survey of local agencies. II ' p Hi Hfj. igL B HI BALANCE is essential when the degree of the ingredients determines the success of an experiment. Pauline Rutana, Anne Keenan, and Mary Smith spend a great deal of their laboratory time weighing their materials on the delicate balances so necessary to their study of chemistry. ROBERT I. O ' HERRON The science major combines the practical with the theoretical and ultimately, solves the mysteries of the scientific world. Chemistry majors accomplish this through study of quantitative and qualitative analysis, organic and physical chemistry. Biology, another major field, ac- quaints the student with courses in zoology, anatomy, histology, embry- ology, and physiology. CHARLES R. GADAIRE HISTOLOGY is an important course to the Biology major. Here Mary McGrath pre- pares to identify a sample of bone tissue while lab partner Angie Madera looks on. PHYSICAL EDUCATION, under the leader- ship of Mrs. Guerdline Curran, plays a necessary part in the schedule of each Freshman, enabling her to develop an interest in campus sports. GUERDLINE K. CURRAN WALTER F. HALPIN ACTING CLASS, a recent dramatic course introduced this year, shows Mr. Halpin explaining dramatic techniques to Rita Grillo and Beverly Pratt. DRAMATICS AND SI ' EH ( ' ll Headed by Walter F. Halpin, the Speech and Drama depart- ment is the most recently established on campus. Students interested in dramatic fields, and others wishing to complement a regular curriculum with such courses as “Basic Train- ing in Speech,” “History of the Theater,” or “Training the Speaking Voice” find this new department both stimulating and useful. NIYNICAL EDUCATION “. . . Sound in mind and body.” Under the able guidance of Mrs. Curran, the Physical Education class seeks to cultivate healthy bodies while fostering good sportsmanship and friendly attitudes. In congenial atmosphere students participate in calisthenics and precision marches, and learn the fundamental games used in children’s recreation. ENGLISH MAJORS Beverly Alexander and Rita Grillo check highlights in the life of Milton with Sister Helen Joseph. From the European masters to the leaders in American literature, from the Victorians and Romantics to Hem- ingway and Greene, from the Eliza- bethan period of Shakespeare to the contemporary period of Shaw — herein is the all-encompassing scope of the English courses offered at the Elms. The primary purpose is to gain an appreciation of the rich and abundant English heritage with which we are endowed; the secondary aim is to foster the enjoyment of literary achievement in every conceivable form. English - — RECENT TROUBLESPOTS attract the attention of history majors Sheila Nesbit and Pat Leonard. HISTORY Liberal educators agree that history plays a vital and important role in a liberal education. A treasure chest of knowledge, it enables students to know the background of past civilizations whose problems often shed light on cur- rent affairs. History students, in addition to courses in ancient, European, American, and contemporary history, augment factual knowledge with independent study of both ancient and contemporary cultures. This leads to a keen under- standing of international affairs and prepares each student for her role life. J a mm Ml VS I IN Physics is a top science today and its great importance cannot be overlooked. Extra courses in this field have been added to the curriculum, and plnsics students are enthusiastically aware of the potentials of their subject in the area of modern science. nrnnirms PHYSICS ENTHUSIASTS are among the most avid of knowledge seekers. Here Rae Thompson and Joanne Joseph spend an afternoon in the lab, working with the spectrograph. Taking advantage of recent advances in the field, a course in Modern Mathematics has been added to the curriculum. Thus, with this introduction to abstract mathematics and a solid foundation in traditional courses, students are well equipped to meet the challenges of their particular field in todav’s world. BOOLEAN ALGEBRA is explained by Sister Anna Cecilia to Mary Hunt during a Math Major class. ItlSIVESS ’£LJV LL t? Business and secretarial courses in a liberal arts college 1 offer the advantage of a strong cultural background combined with the professional train- ing and skills of a business career. This department prepares young women for posi- tions of responsibility as executive secretaries in the business and professional world. FUTURE SECRETARY Faith Ethier builds her speed during a practice period in the business room. 21 GOETHE beckons German students Lucretia Haylor, Mary Calabrese, and Carol Gilboy. CLASSICALITY interests Latin students Sandy Shaw, Maura Higgins, and Peggy McLean. fR u VICARIOUS TRAVELING amuses French majors Mary Ellen Spencer and Pat Dowd. ACCENTING SPAIN are Betsy Bergin, and Maria Forte . L A , (i U 4 !■ E S The cry for hemispheric solidarity has become more resounding during these times of stress. Solidarity calls for knowledge and understanding of our neighbors, and under- standing of them calls for capable handling of their language. Language is the golden link which holds the chain of friendship. Upon this premise our language curriculum has been formed. ART Wall decorations artistically arranged with the variegated colors of students’ own works make inspiringly pleasant surround- ings for students of Sr. Rose Dolores’ art classes. Here hidden creativeness happily emerges in many forms— abstract line de- signs, subtle fingerpaintings, playful masks, or even winsome puppet creations. INNOVATION in the art department ij this ceramics equipment being explained to Jayne Brown and Mary Lou Dunn by Sister Rose Dolores. MUSIC JOURNALISM jaunty are our journalists as they scurry about the four corners of the campus prac- ticing all the elements of their art in its application to school activities, later to put these learnings to use in broader journalistic fields. BUDDING JOURNALISTS Jeanne Atkinson, Debbie Coon, Nancy Madden, and Beppe Garrity relax while talking over the literary situation. A liberal education is incomplete with- out the study of fundamentals of music and an appreciation for true musical artistry. Freshmen and Juniors enrich their curricu- lum with such pursuits under the helpful guidance of Sister Lawrence Marie. AUTOHARP TECHNIQUE, demonstrated here by Joanne Zuorski and Connie Tierney, provides future teachers with a valuable classroom aid. S3? KATHLEEN M. MEENAGHAN Vice-President BARBARA M.

Responsibilities began to grow, and silently it was known that the crystal moment of graduation would grant you the gravity of Seniors and all had to be ready for it. That was always the plan, and it happened that you were our Juniors, and it was good to feel your strength behind us. It is with confidence then that we pass our Seniorhood on to you, knowing it safe in your most capable hands. Betty McDermott, Jane Shea, Joan Sullivan, Beverly Alexander.

FRESHMEN Kathleen Weldon, V ice-President; Rozanne Smith, Treasurer; Donna Millin, Secretary. Verdant were our Freshmen, reflected in the light of late summer green when first we watched them gayly assemble on our campus in Highland attire. Alive, modern, and brimful of joy, they rol- licked more than cowered, and Senior initiators lost their hearts before initiation had run half its course. Elms Night came for you, Frosh, and with it a chance to unite and display your right to the title “Elmite.” With a swirl of plaid and a show of spirit, you proved your worth and snatched mid-air the rain of caps which fell with “Gaudeamus” from the balcony above. Then came the real initiation, the real challenge. Classes began, and college life thrust its most im- portant aspect upon our uncertain newcomers.

Work grooves were hard to find and others had to chalk off the boundaries— a wide path for knowledge, narrower ones for frolic. Chalk marks grow dim, but the line is a constant, and all stray back to it eventually. Your days are before you, Lowlanders, and we envy them. Not just the big days, the shows, the proms, the rings, and processions. Once over, those memories are safe. We envy the little days — the friendships, the big plans, the shared dreams, and even the worries. Don ' t wish them away. They’re worth every moment you give, and we know from knowing you that it is in your power to give them the best. Lavelle, Ada Mallory Hamm, Jacqueline Croughwe Nieves.

STUDENTS In recollecting the companions of our college years, it would be impossible to pass over the groups of special students who shared our studies and whose influence was so important and so lovingly imposed on us. Dedicated to a pursuit of knowledge, these Sisters so vitalized their endeavors and thus stimulated us to new resolutions in our own pursuits that it is fitting for us to pause in our reflections and remember them here.

In the one year since Our Lady’s Sodality acquired the “new” look of selectivity measurable success has been attained. During a four-month probation period candidates are given the opportunity to test Sodality, which in return, tests them. Realizing the wonderful way of life offered “to Jesus through Mary” more than sixty-five students celebrated the feast of the Annunciation, this year, with a solemn Act of Consecration to Mary. Apostolic leadership is cultivated through the activities of the Eucharistic, Literary, Mission, and Our Lady’s Committees, as well as through close contact with other college Sodalities. Highlighting this year’s activities was a New England Council week-end, held in February at Boston College and enthusiastically attended by Elms Sodalists. From this union of interior perfection and apostolic development springs the Catholic College Sodalist, pre- pared to live life to the full. WHITE- JACKETED officers Barbara Lunardini, Prefect , Judy O ' Connell, Vice-Prefect, Carol Griffin, Secretary , and Frannie Finn, Treasurer, pause during an active and successful Sodality year. t Since its beginning in 1953, our Student Government Association has striven to promote mutual understanding and co-operation between the students and faculty. The legislative body of the Association is the Student Council, whose twenty-eight members represent each class, Sodal- ity, and NFCCS. Under the firm leadership of Barbara Majewski, with the aid of faculty moderator, Sr. Mary Antonella, Student Government serves as the medium through which the voice of each individual student may be transmitted and acted upon. Self government is one of the most important privileges that can be granted to a student body; there- fore, it is the obligation of each Elmite to be aware of her own responsibilities and act accordingly. Throughout the year Student Government has spon- sored such successful activities as High School Day, Parent-Daughter Day, and the Spring Formal.

" Mary Ellen McCarthy, Alternate Delegate, Mary Martin, Senior Delegate , Margie Cav- anaugh, Junior Delegate One of the “Big Three” on the Elms campus is the National Federation of Catholic College Students, commonly called NF. This organization is the vehicle for opinions expressed by the Catholic student population. Its purpose is to service the individual clubs on campus, ultimately resulting in the development of a strong lay apostolate. During the past year NF sponsored Forensic and Industrial Relations workshops, a day of prayer for the Hungarian refugees, a campus election in which Frances Finn was chosen the Outstanding Catholic Youth from the Elms, and co-sponsored with Family Life Club an informal talk by Thomas McCarthy, M.D. POOLING OPINIONS and sharing conclusions make the NF workshops an effective vehicle for the exchange of ideas between colleges. PPM i ' W ' ;;. ?$ ?£» Family Life is a young and flourishing club which has a definite eye on the future. It stresses the aims and responsibilities of the Catholic family to the college and post-college community. Activities include informal meetings at which members carry on lively discussions of any topic of interest. Fostering a greater knowledge and love of the Liturgy, the prayer life of the Church, is the aim of the Liturgy Club, headed by Mary Derengow- ski. Inspired by the “Mediator Dei’’ of Pope Pius XII, the club has made the Sacraments its study project of the year while continuing to promote Compline. BRINGING LITURGY to the campus level are club officers Florence Donoghue, Vice-President , Mary Derengowski, Presi- dent; and Mary Collins, Secretary. Peggy Mulvey, National Liturgy Chairman , and Patricia Flaher- ty, Regional Liturgy Chairman. FAMILY LIFE officers: Virginia Weeks, President; Irene Rosen- beck, Vice-President; Carol Gilboy, Secretary ; Peggy Copia, Treasurer. Liturgy DISCUSSING the question of the proper age for marriage are Juanita lech, Anne Marie Roche, Beverly Chevalier, Claudette Molleur, and Rita Grillo. APOSTOLIC ZEAL is stressed by CCD officers Rae Thompson, President , and Bonnie Wyne, Vice-President, in the club that has its most wide- reaching effects on children in near-by communities. The International Relations Club is an organization extending beyond the ordinary realm of a classroom. Dealing with international affairs, its members are free to discuss problems and events outcomes of which are so vital to today’s world. Under the leadership of Cynthia Baker, IRC invites all to participate in the panel discussions and informal debates which play such an important part of this organization. Not limiting itself to on-campus activities, IRC joins in discussion with several of our neighboring colleges. Cynthia Baker, President; Pat Flaherty, Vice-President ; Marie Fer- indino, Secretary; and Janice Edwards, Treasurer, organize the weekly meetings of the International Relations Club. POSSIBLE CANDIDATES for future elections are surveyed by Evelyn Lachut, Barbara McCall, and Alice Johnson at an IRC meeting. One of the newer clubs on campus, CCD finds a wonderful outlet for apostolic zeal and enthusiastic Catholic Action— teaching the youth of Christ. Preparation is an essential prerequisite for any successful undertaking, and those attending night courses with Father Devine are fully aware of its special importance since the fullest enrichment of young souls will depend largely upon their skill in presenting Catholic truth. Ceremonious presentation of the teaching cer- tificates and numerous indulgences granted with the work place an added stress on its significance. Teachers and helpers alike combined to make this a successful year for the club. t Nancy Bla The development of Catholic lay leadership and democratic principles of speech is the aim of the Mother John Berchmans Debating Society. Mock debates and panel discussions held at the bi-monthly meetings compose the ground- work for attaining this goal. Re-organized within the past three years, this society has witnessed a rapid revival of interest on campus. RESOLUTE DEBATERS are led by Mary Agnes Gould, Presi- dent; Mary Ellen McCarthy, Treasurer,- Nancy Blanchard, Secretary and Mary Martin, Business Manager. CHRISTMAS BAZAAR lends its background for this picture of Verdeoro officers: Marilyn Brunet, Recording Secretary; Nancy O ' Flynn, President; Joyce Perosino, Secretary; Irene Rosenbeck, Vice President; and Mary Hunt, Treasurer. Verdeoro Regarded as the official campus dramatic club, Verdeoro is the organization which serves as our own Broadway showcase. With activity the cornerstone of the group, each member finds a place whether it be in the radiant person of a leading lady of the modest but vital position of stagehand. During the past year Verdeoro sponsored all dramatic productions on campus as well as many off-campus, including participation in a one-act play tournament at Regis and a Forensics Workshop at Saint John’s College in Brooklyn.

The Blessed Martin De Porres Sociology Club is composed of students interested in current socio- logical problems and in the principles of Catholic social thought which provide a firm basis for social action. Under the guidance of its Moderator, Sister John Martha, and its President, Nancy Keegan, the Sociology Club has featured stimulating lectures. discussion groups, movies, and book reviews of sociological significance. Highlighting this year’s activities were weekly visits to Our Lady of Providence Home for Children, a Christmas Party for the aged at the Chicopee Infirmary, and a workshop on the revision of the Taft-Hartley Law in which Sociology students from the Elms and St. Anselm’s participated.

Through its activities and group discussions, the club informs the science major of the many opportunities open to her in the world of science today. It also enables arts majors to gain a sampling of scientific knowledge so necessary for a liberal arts background. With an eye always on that future, the science club presents information on current medical devel- opments and present-day scientific discoveries. Truly one of the most vital organizations on campus, the science club gives us knowledge of man and the world about him in the light of Catholic principles.

Amici an active year of zeal for new projects, the Athletic Association found itself giving a great deal of its attention to its reinitiated intercollegiate bas- ketball team. Early successes kept spirits high and optimism mirthful as plans were made for more and more matches during the season. Ping-pong tournaments and badminton retained their popularity, but a new emphasis on tennis stole the spotlight for a while as the Spalding Company prepared to bring national tennis champs for a special clinic at the Elms. Softball enthusiasts wound up the season, and the traditional Commencement week banquet com- pleted the year’s work with the presentation of individual and class awards.

La Forte Fastellana W ht ' ii the Spanish linguists meet, “el espiritu de Castilla vieja is brought to the Elms campus. As members become proficient in speaking the language, a deep appreciation for the culture of Spanish speaking people all over the world is also developed. A description of the celebration of Christmas in South American countries highlighted the annual Christmas party. Bonds of understanding and friendship between Spaniards and Americans, all members of the family of God, are made stronger with each meeting of La Corte Castellana. To know and to understand the culture and customs of France and to speak her language is the credo of the mem- bers of Le Cercle Francais. French major Alary Ellen Spencer ably guided the organ- ization in the attainment of this goal in all their activities this year. The most popular meeting among the students was the annual Christmas party co-sponsored by La Corte Castellana. Our pretty Canadian Freshman, Claire Lord, gave a preview of what Christmas at home would be for her. In this and its other undertakings, the purposes of this club were admirably realized.

A bit of home away from home is the echoing spirit of our six undergraduate clubs on campus. In its third year the Berkshire chapter shone brightest with its most successful Christmas Ball co-sponsored by Holy Cross. Fifty per cent of the proceeds were donated to Brightside Orphanage. The Connecticut and South Shore Clubs slowly but surely gathered impetus. Connecticut did its part by participating in an inter-collegiate dance held during the Thanksgiving holidays, while South Shore extended a gracious welcome to incoming freshmen by way of a tea.

The Holyoke branch followed suit with a Com- munion Breakfast which proved satisfying and suc- cessful, and they also met with prosperity at a later food sale. While the purpose of the clubs is mainly social, each member acts as a good will ambassador to the pre-college community. WORCESTER Undergraduate Club officers are Kathleen Barry, President ; Florence Donoghue, Vice-President; Janet DiFonzo, Secretary,- and Helen Dillon, Treasurer. BERKSHIRE Undergraduate Club, another of the newly organized clubs, is capably led by Marilyn Deignan, President; Natalie Mackie, Vice-President; Mary O ' Brien, Secretary; and Claudette Molleur, Treasurer. Tourmaline Three times each year Elmites anticipate the publication of Tourmaline, our college literary maga- zine. Its important function is to serve as the official organ for the best in self-expression and creativity. In order to maintain the high level of standing that it has attained and to assure its continuation as a medium for the truth of Catholicism, contributions are encouraged from all students. This year, the aim of our “Magazine of Distinc- tion” was to foster a critical, positive, challenging air toward the field of entertainment. Staffed by Junior journalists, Tourmaline was supervised by Jean Driscoll and Kathleen Fenton, co-editors. Due to their combined efforts and talents, the theme has been clearly reflected in well written articles, pol- ished verse, and thought-provoking editorials. The history of a nation is merely the accumulation of daily news items which have been compiled and recorded throughout the centuries. .So too, the history of a college is read first in its newspaper. Throughout the pages of Elmscript, one is aware of the pulsating tone commonly referred to as the “spirit of OLE.” Through its pictures and illustra- tions progress and modernity are evident, yet it never loses sight of the main objective— to re-echo Christ in a world where many are embarrassed to whisper His name. Elmscript’s outstanding editorials convey to its readers the editors’ sentiments on current politics, science, and items of local interest. Success of its endeavors is indicated by its All- American and All-Catholic awards as well as the much-coveted title of Newspaper of Distinction. NEWS OF the campus, featured in Elmscript, is directed under the supervision of Lois Salome and Ellen O ' Brien, Co-Editors, and Janis Wise, Business Manager.

RICHARD PATTEE COFFEE HOUR finds Peggy Copia engaging the attention of Monsignor John J. Burns as Rita Grillo and Barbara Lunardini look on with interest. Providing intellectual stimulation and prompting discussion are the purposes of our lecture series and annual Coffee Hour, activities anticipated by the student body. At this year’s Coffee Hour, Monsignor John J. Byrnes, President of St. Thomas Seminary, discussed “Standards for a Novel Morally Acceptable to the General Public.” At the informal Coffee Hour in the library, after the lecture, current novels were reviewed in the light of these standards. Dr. Richard Patee, returning once more to Veritas Auditorium, aroused our attention with his lecture on “Current Affairs,” delivered in typical Patee fashion, interestingly and informally. A new year— our Senior year at that, and it had to begin with a battle! Freshmen Lowlanders, expecting the worst, steeled themselves for. our Highland attack and showed spirit in the initial smoker skirmish. Stronger Senior aggression, however, proved overwhelming, but an Achilles heel was noted and remembered. Strategically retreating by night and re- suming battle at dawn, Freshmen found the enemy weakened by a night of reveling. Off guard but still deadly, the Highlanders struggled valiantly, leading jaunty Low- landers through flings and maneuvers and traditional initiation stunts, but Freshmen relentlessly held ground and inch by inch advanced on the Highland position. Seniors rallied. War cries were heard, and results were terrifying for unprepared Low- landers in this final encounter. Victory was inevitable as Highlanders gladly tossed in their lethal white jackets, signifying the end of initiation, and rewarded the battle- weary enemy with smiles all around. " GAUDEAMUS IGITUR, " " We the caps on you bestow” in somber strains floats from the balcony with treasured caps tossed from senior hands to awaiting frosh below.

Solemnity was the keynote of Cap and Gown Sunday as Seniors for the first time donned the academic black of achievement. So often had these ceremonies been watched, one seemed to be looking on only once more as the line formed and be- ribboned offerings were raised in offering. Seniorhood, a long-earned feat, was symbolized by a cap and gown carried by sister hands, while early morning mist surrounded the chapel and shadows of preceding Seniors seemed to follow in step to the altar. There were roses from the Sophomores, and time was found for singing; for this was a happy occasion as reflections of the past transplanted plans for the future, yet both linked in the solemn significance of the present. Wide lawns unfolded before the winding black line in the crisp October afternoon as Seniors displayed their achievement, acknowledging their readiness to lead. TRADITIONAL BREAKFAST in the Dining Hall following the morning ceremony is filled with songs and congratulations of underclassmen. Donning at last the long awaited Caps and Gowns, Seniors file past friends and relatives in solemn procession. CAPTURING THE audience with their rendition of " Jimmy Brown " are these companions of song, Louise O ' Leary, Made- line Joseph, and Jeanne Kasuba. First-nighters were treated to an evening of original and delightful entertainment as the Class of 1960, vying with Mike Todd’s fabulous produc- tion, presented the annual Soph Show. The fresh green of the Emerald Isle complete with high stepping colleens— the gay, carefree atmosphere of a little Italian village — the glamorous Parisian flavor of the nightclub — the lazy luxurious beauty of a Pacific isle and authentic luau: a command performance in every respect and another wonder- ful moment to remember.

Shadows flickering on the walls reflected the fun and frolic of another “Elmata,” ably organized by general Chairman Barbara Lunardini. Clever decorations caused many a comment; while the refreshment stand, figuratively called " Scotch on the rocks,” was a favorite spot during intermissions. It was an unforgettable night filled with red and green plaid " moments to remember.” CYNTHIA BAKER, shown here with Mary Ellen Spencer and Rae Thompson, handled publicity for the dance.

CAMPUS TOURS finds Barbara Guardione showing the new Senior dormitory to a group of visitors. INTERESTED high school visitors inspect the display table outside the auditorium. November sunshine smiled warmly on some five hundred high school seniors as Our Lady of the Elms opened her gates, welcoming these future collegians to a day at the college and a chance to view the campus in action. Seniors, hoping for someone to fill their place— Juniors, with visions of initiation — Sophs, watching for potential little sisters— and Frosh, anxious to be observers, rather than par- ticipants in initiation— all Elmites with light hearts and help- ful hands, helped to prepare an interesting program. A welcoming assembly followed by a Sophomore “Cow- girls” versus Freshman “Indians” basketball game, the Soph Show, tours of campus, and a lunch followed by Benediction provided a day full of those events which are part of Elms life. We hoped that in September many new Frosh will recall, “We were there.” “WRAPPED HIM in swaddling clothes . .

To every Elmite, the green and gold of her Tourmaline reflects four years of happy college days. Mirrored in its gleaming brightness are tangible memories of the spirit, love, and loyalty that is Our Lady of the Elms. Junior Week End Romantically recreating the oid south, Juniors opened doors of secrecy to present in elegance their beautiful prom theme “Tara.” Tall white columns bedecked with Spanish moss reminded us of a flowing fountain in Granada, as we noted with practiced eye the long-houred details of a colorful sunset sky. Jazz concert and dinner dance stole the spotlight on Saturday and a Communion breakfast climaxed the second successful Junior week end. GRACEFUL DECORATIONS conveyed the theme of Southern elegance at the annual Junior Prom. ■ L A • ’ mms t fig SHADES OF the twenties!

GREETING late comers are Garrity, Joan DiNardo and Nesbit. m Retreat UNITED in prayer are two Seniors, Nancy O ' Flynn and Mary Ellen Spencer. With the long-awaited return of spring to our campus, came the time for our annual retreat. These were the few precious days of silence and solitude, when we put away all affairs of the world and considered instead, a matter of infinitely more importance, our relationship with God. Under the guidance of our retreat master, Rev. Arthur J. McCarthy, S.J., our spiritual life became richer and more fruitful. REV. ARTHUR J. McCARTHY, S.J. SLIPPING INTO CHAPEL for a few minutes of mental prayer is Carol Griffin, Sodality Secretory. FOOD FOR THOUGHT is found by Marilyn Deignan, Margaret Solimene, and Anne Redden in the written word. Living I! o.s an May afternoon stillness found whispering leaves and sun- shine reflected on green lawns as the voices of young women broke the silence with the clear intoning of a favorite prayer. This was our way of counteracting for Mary, Our Lady in Blue, the simultaneous actions of other factions cele- brating a May day in red. Cap and gowned Seniors became pulsating black and white beads surrounded by the great cross of the student body. Absent were the noise and confetti, leaving only the music of each Hail Mary to float upward to the Queen of Peace asking for good will among the peoples of the earth. ROSARY AND TOURMALINE combined in a way familiar to Elmites. ECHOES OF PRAYER gently rise, a quiet protest to the world’s unrest. TEACHING THE ART of make-up to Jenny, played by Mary Carol Urso, is Norman Girourd as Owen Parkside. THIS SCENE from “Our Lady ' s Juggler” depicts Rita Grillo as Sr. Mary Esther, Mary Kelly as Our Lady, and Betty Gallagher as Sr. Joseph Andrew. Dramatics play an important and most successful role here on campus. All who possess that “dramatic flair” are welcome to try out for the various roles which make each production such a momentous success. This past season highlighted the entertaining comedy, " Jenny Kissed Me,” Jenny being vividly portrayed by Mary Carol Urso. December brought the colorful Christmas plays fol- lowed by traditional interclass plays which stimulate dramatic excellence by fostering class competition. SCENE FROM " Jenny Kissed Me " finds Mrs. Deazy, (Irene Rosen- beck), Jenny (Mary Carol Urso), Fr. Moynahan (Walter Halpin), and Michael Saunders (Don Shea). is§ Informally Speaking CAUGHT TAKING advantage of the library recorder is Mary McGrath. CAUGHT PENNING a note to her little sister before the Soph Show is Nancy O’Flynn. Caught off guard is well caught. It is at these in between times that we are seen as we are. Everything we do is not important as men calculate importance, but we find value in the smaller moments that are so necessary to a survey of our year. We place these stray- ing pieces in between the gaps. Without them the picture remains incomplete— it is a face without feature, lacking personality. CAUGHT DURING a Commencement Week step sing is the class of ’58. ■ | |B CHAIRMAN Anne Redden had a twofold job when a snowstorm postponed the show from February to April. Fashion Show COMMITTEE member Peggy Curran gives a backstage assist to model Judy Boulanger as she prepares for an entrance. Down a flower bedecked platform paraded lovely Elmites modeling all types of fashions from cool crisp cottons to luxuriant soft furs. Breathtakingly beautiful wedding gowns were, for many, a forecast of tbe future. When the curtain closed on today’s fashions, we left with remembrances of “la belle mode” which was at its peak this night. MODELS LINED UP for this picture which shows Barbara Lunardini, Donna Millin, Judy Stagnaro, Nancy Keegan, Beverly Alexander, and Ann Marie Perry. Parent lla lighter Day PICTURED WITH PARENTS are Barbara Guardione, Mary Coffey, and Frances Finn. Elegant chapeaux and the aroma of cigar smoke permeated the atmosphere announcing to all that Parent-Daughter Day had again arrived on the Elms campus. From the banquet tables rose the murmur of parents renewing friendships and comparing anec- dotes of today’s generation. As the day quickly slipped into evening, we realized the truth of the expression “Tempus fugit,” for we had only begun to show our home away from home. May this yearbook, then, complete our parents’ views of this, our second home, made possible by them. SEEN WITH PARENTS are Mary Martin, Kathleen Barry, and Mary Collins. 4 . SUNLIGHT graces the grotto as Barbara Lunardini crowns Our Lady assisted by Kathleen Barry, Frannie Finn, Judy O ' Connell, and Mary Martin. Along the grassy path to Mary’s shrine The Seniors come with youth and beauty blest, Each bearing in her hand a blossom white A symbol of pure Jove in maiden breast. Young hearts beat true in faith and hope and love, Young eyes alight are fixed on Mary’s face As towards a beacon set on home’s fair shore The yearning mariner directs his gaze. Dear Mother, keep us in thy tender care. Guard thou the pathway by our footsteps trod. Oh, Lady of the Elms be thou our Guide To bring us through Life’s journey home to God. — TRADITIONAL TRIBUTE Mary s Hay MAY COURT included Kathleen Barry, Evelyn Lachut, Angie Madera, Barbara McCall, Beppe Garrity, Sheila Nesbit, Maureen O ' Neil, Frannie Finn, Judy Stagnaro, Mary Ann Salmon, Barbara Lunardini, Judy O ' Connell, Terry Moruzzi, Mary Ellen McCarthy, Judy Kennedy, Janis Wise, Marlene Mullin, Ellen Reardon, Maria Forte, and Mary Martin. Class Hay Each year a day is set aside for the graduating class and the school to honor each other. Graduates offer their school gift, plant a tree, and present their year- book. The school nods in love and bestows a parting blessing upon them. GRAVE OLD SENIORS and their escorts grace the marbled rotunda of the Administration Building during the annual Senior Ball, 1958 ' s dance to end all dances. SENIORS PLANT a tree each year on Class Day as the student body forms an honor guard to march in procession over the paths of the campus. Senior Ball Transformed into a glittering ballroom, the white- marbled rotunda found each Senior Cinderella arriving Prince-escorted for her last college dance. Four wonder-filled years were reflected in lights and music when, all too soon, the clock struck the witching hour, chiming our Senior Ball into the past. SENIORS Juanita Lech, Anne Marie Roche, Ginny Weeks, Peggy Wallace, and Jo Ann MacDonald march in caps and gowns. Reflections break and scatter in the morning light of Commencement. The prize, the promise, finis. This is why we came here. Four dashing years were spent at whirling pace, four years of trying, of work, and of happy relapses when books were tossed aside and replaced by mirth. They circle around your head, those days, until reflections become a haze, apart from the reality of the moment. This can’t be you reaching for a shining diploma. This can’t It is real, taps the rhythm of our steps upon the stage. It is real, sings the choir as the sound sweeps about us. You’ve made it, shout the eyes of the great hall upon us. Deo gratias, says a voice within. Ponderously the black line of achievement follows the pompous procession. Heads rise to view the reluctant recessional and see golden reflections of triumph dancing enticingly in the distance. TRADITIONAL DAISY CHAIN is carrier First row-.

CLASS HISTORY Just as an explorer, atop a lofty summit, views the ground he has covered, scans the horizon, and relives the past, so we, after exploring the valleys, groves, rivers, and hills of Our Lady of the Elms today stand on Senior Summit and relive our journey. Route 1954-55 marked the first road of our trip. We remember how the road began with a statue of the First Lady of the Elms, hands outstretched to us; how our first friends were called Junior Sisters, welcoming us into their hearts with a song; how Foreign Legionnaires were tested by the “Majors” whose frowns veiled smiling hearts. There were hills along this road, difficult because they were new to us — classes, mid-terms and finals, clean-up committees, and the general adjustments one must make to college life. And yet, each hill held a shaded tree with leaves whispering — Sodality re- ception, retreat, step-singing, and that first Mass of the Holy Ghost. Close to the trees flowed gurgling FOREIGN LEGIONNAIRES Alice Johnson, Merrie Jo Keenan, Lois Lambert, Mary Martin, Ginny Weeks, and Kay Meenaghan displayed a variety of attitudes toward initiation in September 1954 . TWO LOST SOULS, Terry Saccavinc and Jo-Anne MacDonald, delighted us while Mary Ellen Spencer, Ellen Cowell, and Marilyn Riley waited for “I Can ' t Do the Sum.” " FOR SOON NIGHT will welcome the stars while a thousand guitars play our soft habanera. Then Moonlit Granada will live again the glory of yesterday, ro- mantic and gay. " brooks, bubbling with the mirth of proms, concerts, movies in the lounge, and college week-ends. Before we had time to say “Desert Song” we were well on the way to Route 1955-56, “Gaiety Road.” We now became more closely acquainted with our other companions and decided to plan a show of shows for them, filled with magic “Moments to Remember.” At this point our group was distin- guished by white jackets and a song of our very own. Disregarding the “sophomoric philosophy” which says, “Why study?” we approached classes and found that study was necessary in our quest for knowledge. And then, having completed one half of our journey, we gazed at the next sign which said “the best road,” (and it was!) As seasoned travelers we were asked to watch over the newcomers. These “little sisters” were as close to us as the Tourmaline rings they later slipped on our fingers. One detour on this road led to the sunny Spain of “Granada,” where the beauty and romance of lace fans, ivy walls, and shimmering fountains spelled Junior Prom and the first Junior Prom week-end. We realized, however, that this road, too, was nearing its end, as the travelers ahead turned and sang “their last good-bye.” Route 1957-58 was a road paved with memories and marked by a new lodging, the Senior Dorm, a symbol of what we should be after this last trip — strong, firm, stamped with the image of Mary, beautifully furnished interiorly as well as exteriorly. Now began a series of never to be forgotten lasts — the Senior Ball, our night of memories; Parents’ Day HARVEST MOON barbershop time discovered Faith Ethier, Barbara Maiolo. Claudette Molleur, and Kay Barry contributing their harmony to our Soph Show. FUN FILLED HOURS were spent as make-believe Carmel- ites in the practice and presentation of " Song at the Scaffold " during our Sophomore year. MARDI GRAS presented by our little sisters during Junior year found the class of ’58 enthusiastically sup- porting this frolicsome project. spent with the folks who had encouraged our every step along the four roads; our last classes with the faculty we shall never forget; our last morning Mass in the little chapel, home of our Changeless Friend, with whom we shared so many intimacies. Today, in the midst of our Class Day exercise, we are filled with mixed emotions as we recall the roads we have traveled, as a class. We would like to linger, “ The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,” and yet we know me must go and meet the future. “For we have promises to keep. And miles to go before we sleep, And miles to go before we sleep.” Barbara A. Lunardini Class Historian CLASS SOIL ViiAfeqjP.Rg Jlylici. tuf. ieveSiUf.

Lies pierced to hidden depths by the light that probes. Disclosing dappled treasures. Not a large pond, but its opalescent surface can mirror the whole wood around: Multicolored grasses of a kind, yet each distinct. Bend over the place, stretching in all their supple strength To see their faces reflected in nature’s glass; Altered slightly perhaps for the mingled medium in which they blend with Stalwart oak-shapes, changeless but for leaves of nature ' s whim, and graceful elm branches swaying With grace in the face of the wind; trailing twigs across the silvered sheen and simulated blue Where clouds drift in silent acquiescence. No signs of stagnant apathy, no dank mass of reeds strangling on the surface: Far out beyond the borders trickle the quiet streams to nurture life still springing in their wake, Hardly heard for the outer din. They flow In liquid freedom, yet ever keep the path cut long ago by the first venturing droplets, A path only widened by the watery years. They stream in nature ' s sequence through the place beyond, Pond-souls within, always feeding from the source. Ann Marie Perry Jladtui (lejjleciia ttd. ?
