To us at Emma Willarcl, music has taken its place as an
integral part of our daily living. Stop and listen for a
moment at any time during the day-perhaps the choir is
rehearsing, or a ukelele is being strummed, or a group of
girls are just sitting around and harmonizing "Katie
Malone." We have a tune for every occasion, and these
songs have become as much a part of Emma Willard as the
old stone gargoyles.
Cur thanks to you then, Mr. Finch, for showing us that
good music is always fun, and proving that "a singing school
is a happy school." In appreciation of all you have taught
us, we dedicate the 1952 Gargoyle to you.

As teacher of history and our Junior adviser, Miss
Kennedy was of great service to the class of 1952, and was
admired and loved by us all. Those of us who entered the
school last year found that her welcoming smile and friendly
greeting helped to assuage our first fears and homesickness,
and those who had known her longer were glad for the
privilege of closer association with her.
Miss Kennedys interest in our problems, her unfailing
encouragement in our difficulties, her patience, sweetness
and gallant cheerfulness at all times, are things that we shall
remember and value long after we leave Emma Willard. Her
generous and unfailing devotion to her work and to the
school continue to be a constant inspiration to all who knew

Of School Government
School Council might be said to be the cof
ordinator of all Emma Willard campus life. For
on this council sit the heads of the subsidiary
councils, each representing an important phase of
campus activity. A typical meeting of School
Council might include discussion of an election
procedure, discussion of the Athletic Associations
point system, Slocum Council plans, the voting of
a chapel collection to some worthy cause upon the
recommendation of Chapel Circle, consideration
of some problem in the Work system, or recomf
mendations of girls for Cutstanding Citizenship.
School Council represents the fusing into a co'
ordinated deliberative body the divers elements of
Emma Willard School and is the meeting ground
of faculty, student and administration interests.
Head of Slocum Council represents the inf
terests of that council whose purpose is to main'
tain in Slocum Hall an atmosphere in which stu'
dents are able to work and study effectively. Es'
sential in the fulfilling of this goal is the encourf
agement of such principles as consideration for
others, a high standard of integrity, and selff
Working with Slocum Council on the problems
and regulation of the hall are the Usher Com'
mittee, the Assembly Committee, the Library
Committee, the class officers, the Officers of the
Day, and the Day Work Committee.
Head of Publications represents the Literary
Board whose interest it is to produce publicaf
tions worthy of Emma Willard, and in keeping
with the high standards of the school. Its mem'
bers seek to encourage student contributions in
the literary and artistic fields, and through their
work, to stimulate appreciation of and interest
in art and writing.
It is the function of Work Council to see that
the student work program runs smoothly. Every
week, Work Council members record the work
done by their fellow students, and discuss any
problems that may have arisen. Work Council
strives to see that each girl fulfills her work oblif
gation of two hours per month, and that all the
work is done thoroughly and well.
U.N.E.W. is a new organization this year,
whose job it is to keep students informed about
the farfreaching activities of the United Nations.
It sponsors discussion groups, shows movies and
gives assembly programs on different aspects of
the United Nations, hoping in this way to interest
students in becoming aware of the necessity of
keeping abreast of current affairs.
Chapel Circle directs student religious activity
at Emma Willard. Through the pooling of ideas
at conferences and visits with ministers, it seeks
to develop in each individual respect and conf
sideration for the ideas of others. Through the
Sunday collections, it seeks to develop interest in
the welfare of others. Chapel Circle works close'
ly with Vfelfare Committee in the allocation of
funds to worthy causes.
Athletic Association sponsors all athletic prof
grams at school. Through the new system of givf
ing points for participation, through awards such
as the AA bracelets given to those outstanding
in skill and participation, AA encourages team
spirit, putting on three field days throughout the
year, for Green and Purple competition. This
year, AA introduced the 'Sport Heads," who are
individuals appointed by AA to help promote
their given sport, and to help in the furthering
of the ideas of participation, sportsmanship, and
cooperation. Also seated on School Council are
the presidents of the four classes, who work on
any class problems, and who provide the council
with its greatest link with the student body as a

And now we come to the very last group of all . . . the GARGCYLE board . . .
who spent many long Friday afternoons in Room A making this book for you. lNe've
tried to collect here some of our favorite memories . . . and we hope they're yours too.
As for us, we'll remember the endless cutting and pasting . . . the obscure mathematics
of reducing a picture to the proper size . . . and the strangely disappearing Writeups.
Nor will we forget Miss Pillsbury's patience and Miss Page's invaluable suggestions.
Now at last we see that our efforts were not all in vain, and we hope that you'll enjoy
this 1952 GARGQYLE as much as we enjoyed working on it.

The Freshman dance was a big success, thanks
to Miss Ferber, who supplied the boys and did
the calling for the square dances. Miss Ferber

The iirst day of school was an exciting one for
old and new sophomores alike. The new girls
were rather awed by their new surroundings,
while the old ones felt much older, wiser, and
more important than they had the year before.
The evening party in the Cafe Rouge was where
they became acquainted or talked over events of
the past summer. It also influenced many to cast
aside their good intentions of getting slim at
hoarding school. The Cafe Rouge had been dis'
The sophomores shine on the athletic field.
When the old Green Hornet stings it, out goes
this spirited class to play or cheer, according to
athletic ahility or lung capacity.
The science huilding is inhahited hy rats,
plants, and sophomores. Here are girls who have
pets on diets or plants that they have nursed
from seedlings. Parents who come to visit their
children hardly ever see them, hut are immediate'
ly introduced to .lasper or jimmy or the new
African violet. Not many parents are aware
that these heloved organisms will one day run
them out of house and home.

Last fall wlicn wc arrivcd at school, wc not
only had to adjust to thc rcalization of hcing
.lUl1iOrs, hut wcrc amazcd to find that tlicrc wcrc
so many of us to makc thc adjustmcnt. Aftcr
thc initial licwildcrmcnt of attcmpting to fit all
thc ncw namcs and faccs togcthcr, wc discovcrcd
that nincty girls wcrc not so many aftcr all.
As juniors, wc acquircd a ncw air of authority,
hcing thu oldcst class in Kcllas, and particularly
tried to hclp our sistcr claw adjust to E.W. lifc.
Vv'c cagcrly indulgfcd in ncw privilcgcs, such as
going to Troy unchapcroncd, Forcign Policy, and
thc drcam of room study, which cvcntually camc
Sincc such a largc numlvcr of us wcrc ncw,
most of thc fall xx as spcnt in survcying our talf
cuts. NVQ discovcrcd scvcral Sarah Bcrnhardts in
our oncfact plays, The Lean 'Years and W1'ong
Numbers. Thc addition of thrcc alilc singcrs inf
crcascd our Scmiquavcr rcprcscntation to four
From thc class ot' 'il wc inhcritcd thc lcadcr-
ship of thc lburplc Tcam, as wcll as thc spirit that
madc it famous. Un Fall Ficld Day, with thc
slogan "Tic up thc Urccns in a Furplc Sack, and
squcczc, squcczc, squcczcn and hcdcckcd with
purplc shoclaccs, wc chccrcd ousclvcs "purplc"
in thc facc and to the surprisc of all fincludinu
oursclvcsj, wc left the ficld victorious.
Thc highlight of thc ycar was our own junior
Prom, which will go down in our mcmory hooks
as a grcat succcss in spitc of our qualms.
Aftcr Christmas vacation, January 23th loom'
cd up in our minds as doomsday for rathcr
doomswcckj and wc scttlcd down to studying
and worrying about cxams. Howcvcr. most of
us managcd to corrclatc our hrains and pcns with
the curriculum and survivcd lilic vctcrans.
Although wc arc thoroughly cnjoying lacing
juniors and the largest class in school. wc cant
wait until ncxt ycar to rcally provc our thcory

With graduation drawing near
Cne backward look take we,
To friends that we have held so dear,
To knowledge gained while we were here,
This is the pHSt we see.
Ahead of us the future lies,
Troubled, unknown and vast,
Yet as we gaze with eager eyes
We see the value of these ties
That link us to the past.
Although we may make friendships new,
Though we may travel far,
Our thanks to you, E.W.,
From us the Class of FiftyfTwo,
You've made us all we are.

And so here we are, breathless but exuberant, and all ready to begin at the bottom again,
as college freshmen. Although at this point our primary interest is in the future, still the
past years have provided many interesting memories for us. Therefore let's go back to the
beginning, four years ago . . .
September 1948 found the first members of the Class of '52 groping uncertainly around
the Emma Willard campus. We were a very freshmanish sort of class that year, living in
terror of some of the seniors, and getting greatly confused about the tunnels and such. Mrs
Heise was our housemother that year, and she never seemed to get upset when we answered
"Yes" to her nightly query, "Are you asleep, girls?" We wonit forget the fabulous dinner
in the tea house with steaks provided by Oharlene's family, or the barbecue which we
cooked the day we went to Dottie's. Members of our class were very good to us that year,
and we also spent a memorable day at Boody's house. We were a very active bunch of
freshmen, but we adjusted quickly to EW. life and soon began to look forward to our
That year was a most eventful one. We started off in the fall with a trip to Bennington
to view the historic sights, with spectacular autumn foliage thrown in as an added attract'
tion. Our study halls were interestingly complicated by cats wandering in through the winf
dows, and skunks caught in enclosures outside. That year we gave a party for Vanderheyden,
and rnarvelled at the boundless energy of small girls aged eight to ten. We fell in with the
curriculum quickly and floundered through medieval history. In the spring a number of unusual
things happened, among them our first trip to Troy unchaperoned, and the joys of room study
for a chosen few. ln June we waved a fond farewell to our sister class, and began to exult in
attaining the dizzy heights of being juniors.
When we reappeared the next fall we were so numerous that there was a little diliiculty
about where to put us all, and we finally ended by overflowing into Sage. One of the most
memorable occasions of our junior year was the Prom weekend, which quite unintentionally
occurred in the midst of a hurricane. Nothing daunted, however, we held the dance in Sage,
amid loud rattling of windows and great uncertainty about the durability of the lights fwhich
held out all evening, only to break down the next dayj. Junior year will also be remembered
for desperate exercising in the halls, and frequent visits to Trinais calorie book. We were
struck with a blight of piefbeds, the cause of which was never known.

Everyone bought ukeleles that year, and the halls rank with "My dog has fleas." "Bali
H'ai" and "Belly Low", with appropriate decorations for each, were two of the themes
which we used for corridor parties. One of the highlights of the year was the basketball upset
when we beat the seniors. And when spring came around, and we had the flame ceremony,
we suddenly realized that our own senior year was awfully close.
On arrival the following September we half expected someone to explain that it was all
a mistake, and we hadn't really reached senior year yet at all. Instead, we found our rings
right in front of our noses. Sage Hall became a rather noisy place, and we found out that
being a senior had its drawbacks, since we were expected to set an example for the underclassf
men. One night in October R.P.I. invaded Emma Willard for a dance, and we discovered that
the experience was really quite pleasant. This year also the date dances were instituted as a
part of the curriculum, an institution which pleased everyone.
About the middle of November we suddenly found ourselves in the midst of Revels
rehearsals, and on the fateful night of December 15 the Emma Willard manor house enter-
tained many delighted parents and alumnae.
Senior year was a great one for bridge, and we even ventured a challenge to the faculty.
It also seems to have been a year for collecting---and creatingffnew expressions, of which the
most notable at this writing is "twitch"
Come winter term, we did all the things which seniors are supposed to do: worried over
college applications and college boards, clipped newspapers frantically for our source themes,
and probed helplessly into Walt Whitmaii. Free time, we learned, is something which a senior
is supposed to do without. And suddenly it was spring term, and we were too busy to realize
how short the time was until graduation.
So now all this is behind us, and ahead is graduation . . . and then college. And we're
beginning to wonder whether leaving Emma Willard is going to be a happy experience after all.
It's sort of a frightening jump from a senior back down to a freshman again, into both a past
and a future. And as the time grows shorter and shorter, we are realizing more and more
keenly that Emma Willard has given us something infinitely more valuable than just an

The entire action takes place in the parlor of the House of the Seven Gables, Salem.
It seems fitting that a page in the GARGOYLE
should be devoted to our Class Day production,
since the very theme of 1952's Class Day is
books that recall for us various phases of E.W.
life. What book is more suited to this idea than
GARGOYLE, which tries to collect the best
and most important memories of our years here?
We chose six books to exemplify our life at
Emma Willard. The first was The Atomic Age.
As one of the first classes to graduate under civil
defense conditions, we have not quite forgotten
the novelty of First Aid classes. The trials of
timing artificial respiration just right to the sec'
ond, and tying bandages so that they neither fall
off nor stop circulation, will not be soon forgotten.
And especially for those of us with rather weak
stomachs, First Aid was never dull. The other
phase of our civil defense preparations-the
memorable drilling in the black of night-also
holds memories. As we sprang into action with
our trusty towels and hurried down into the
depths of the building, some of us were sights
to behold. The combination of fur coats and
loafers, the endless piles of pincurls, and the
various creams and lotions which bedecked our
countenances, did not add to our beauty. And
once in the shelter, we were always struck with
an epidemic of Edgeting and giggling. Never'
theless, we did pretty well, and gradually learned
to take such occasions in our stride.
Om' 'Town presented an opportunity to delve
into the actions of the 'typical EW. girl on a
Saturday afternoon in Troy. We made great
lists of things to do-and never got all of them
done. Some of us went for the sole purpose of
eating all we could hold, and generally more
than accomplished this plan. There was always
much difficulty getting girls to chaperon underf
classmen- even with the lure of being taken to
Our third book, Emily Post's Etiquette, was
interpreted as a typical briefing meeting before
a Prom. Meetings like this, on varied occasions
but with a common theme. were a frequent occur'
rence. How could we forget listening to girl after
girl ask questions which had already been an'
swered? The reception line brought forth intro'
ductions of our best friend as a rather giggly
male. However, the subsequent success of the
dances was not wholly unrelated to the advice
given at these meetings.
Studying in the library is mostly a Senior
privilege, and as such is very close to our hearts.
There was always a mad rush for the couches,
followed by another for the Morrison and Com'
magers. Sometimes we had a little trouble with
bees buzzing in the chandeliers, but generally the
conditions and we were pretty good, and the
privilege was a muchfappreciated one.
Eat and Grow Slim, with reference to our
eternal dieting, was divided into two sections.
First was a scene in the Cafe Rouge, a favorite
refuge for all E.W. girls, regardless of size or
shape. Second, a normal UQ dinner in the dining
room showed the awful results of many long
afternoons spent in the Cafe.
Some of our best memories go back to life
in the dorms. Much Ado About Nothing dealt
lightly with this subject. More than anything
else we'll remember the fun we had just loating
around, playing endless games of bridge, knitting
endless pairs of socks, and reading endless ro'
mances. lt's hard to put down in words all the
good times we've had, and the important things
we've been learning in these four years about
getting along with people. But this, aside from
the educational benefit. seems to be the most
valuable part of E.W.'s contribution to our lives.
Many of us will forget in a few years what our
Class Day itself was like. The songs we sang and
the jokes we laughed at will fade out of our minds
as new memories replace them. But that which
we will remember-because it has become a part
of us-is the way of living which we have experif
enced here at Emma Vvfillard. and it is this which
we have tried to show in our 1952 Class Day.

"Say, look you, sitting in your easy chair,
Pardon intrusion but it's wet up there-"
Uerking a granite thumb
In the direction of the campus towerj

I grant you, to invade a lady's bower
But I just had to come.

A minute on the sill,
That is, until
My ears dry out. It's raining yet
And doubtless will
As long as there's a cloud left to be seeded.
A rum device that is-but smart if needed.
In fact, though rain is even worse than dew,
I favor anything that's new."

Off clinging to the status quo.
Of course, I'm one of them myself-"

"But I get up and go
When there's occasion,
Don't even need persuasion.
Why, did you know,"
lWaggling his earfflaps to and froj
"The only thing that grieves

Indeed, he bowed so low he nearly lost

"Nothing to it!"
He countered, instantlyvregaining poise,

"Thats just the point I'm making, see?

Which is next door to a preacher.

Uerking his granite thumb across his shoulderl
"They'd rather moulder
And gather moss above their ears
Than give an inch to moving with the years.
That way they'll never know the score
Or what they were put there for.
They're Gothic, sure, but modern imitation,

He suddenly exploded in a sneeze
That shook him to his granite knees:
"That comes of rain!
What luck I didn't bust the windowfpane
Or get concussion of the brain
just as it starts to perk,
Because, like you, I also have my work.
"My ears are now quite dry
So I'd better say byefbye
But first I'll tell you my ideal.
And only reason for existance,
Then I'll quit:
The status quo should always meet resistance
And I'M IT."
He vanished . . . Then a momentary grin
Above a granite chin
Thrust back beneath the curtain:
"Forget to tell you why I mind 'em -

How long I'll last up there among my kin
