May your repeated examination of this booh continuously remind you until you never forget that “We are not here to dream, to drift. We have hard work to do and loads to lift. Be strong. It is my hope for you that your days at Monticello may have been filled with those joys of activity, friendship, and endeavor that make life rich and wholesome. But I also know that these Monticello days have given you a certain high resolve to order your life for the benefit of others, for such a plan is the only one known to provide everlasting happiness.

My wish for the senior class is that every member of it will be able to look back and say: It was
at college that I first learned to see a forest instead of only trees. During these years I began to develop perspective. There, I first became intelligently aware that an individual is a member of a group, and that the privilege of membership carries with it the responsibility for constructive participation. I also learned to see the group as the product of an age-long process which epitomizes the inevitability of gradualness. In short, it may be said that at college I first found myself in space and time.
Lively minds, physical vigor, active curiosity these are some of the gifts which you brought to Monticello. You have used them in many ways in the experience of living together on this campus -in hard thinking, in the exchange of ideas, in making community government function, in extra-class activities of varied kinds, in extending your literary, scientific, artistic, or vocational interest. 1941 Have we fulfilled your expectations? 1942 How may we work together to fulfill your hopes and our ambitions for you?

All year long you've heard me talkin about Monti girls and what they do--especially the seniors. The result must be that you have a pretty hazy idea of every-one. Maybe I'd better
take this afternoon to write you about
so that when you conie to
commencement, June £, you'll feel that
you know each one.
Your loving daughter.First our class president, Dorothy Moll, usually called Dodie, o talented pianist and honor student. Her vivacious individuality is reflected in her clothes. We couldn t have chosen a better leader.
Then comes Ina Mae Heath, our red-headed vice-president. Anything connected with sports, and especially hockey, is her meat. You should hear her tell about her Chris-croft, the ''Wilmina.”
Besides being president of A.A., Helen Putman is treasurer of the senior class. Putty can do everything from getting As in academic subjects to riding bareback on Barkus.
You'll recognize Betty Burman by her languid eyes, but there is a little-girl personality behind this sophisticated appearance. Betty is secretary of our class, and a fine one for she's an honor student.
Tiny Betty Ados is always up to mischief. She wants to be glamorous, but we like her the way she is-" lots of fun and the life of the party. For all her levity, she takes bridge seriously and has perfected her game.
Capablo Elizabeth Appel, Lizzie to everyone, chairman of East Residence, is blessed with naturally curly hair. Her talents shine as brightly on the stage and on the basketball floor as in knitting.
interior decoration lines we ll hear about her.
Because of her well-trained voice it is a pleasure to hear Virginia Brazier speak or sing. Ginny, who will always bo remembered for using "Shocking I perfume and wearing sleek clothes, has the distinction of being the only Haskellite who doesn't play bridge- '
Natal ie Burke possesses a dual personality: one is light-hearted and goy, the other, hard-working and serious, but at all times she is sincere and considerate. This energetic Easterner is the outstanding linguist in the senior class.
Pat Findley’s dry humor pops out at the most unexpected moments. She always has a quick retort on the tip of her tongue. You will usually see tall, slim Pat with a copy of the New Yorker tucked under her arm.
Anne Chapman's cherubic face puckers into a frown as she uses the Spanish dialect which she picked up last year in Mexico where she was in school. Her unusual earrings add dash to her appearance.
Besides being a horsewoman of considerable ability, Gayle Foster knows a great deal about technical aspects of the theatre. She's a tiny miss with flashing brown eyes and a ready smile.
Kindliness and friendliness describe Jeanne Edwards. She is the ideal figure for long sweaters and casual tweed skirts.
Small, slight Carolyn Evans, independent to the nth degree, seems reserved at first, but after you know her you’re in for the laugh of your life. She always promises to flunk every subject; then comes through with flying colors.
Her sense of humor has immortalized Julie Frazee at Monti. She can twist anything short of a major catastrophe into a ridiculous incident. An all- round capable girl, she is especially adept at news writing.
An outstanding dress designer is Marjorie Freiburg who has made many costumes for the school plays. She does everything with the same precision that she sews a fine seam.
21Tall, blonde Alethea Goedde is interested in all phases of the theatre. She's a dancer of no mean ability and can execute steps of any type from modern dance to jitterbugging. She’s a whiz at chemistry.
Winifred Gottschalk cuts a stunning figure in her gray riding habit as well as on the dance floor in a Parisian creation. Large brown eyes and golden hair add to the glamour of the portrait.
Theatre, modern dance, sports, social affairs all these claim the attention of Kay Graf. And she does them all so well! She is always bubbling over with cheeriness os she converses in sprightly tones over the sweater she is knitting.
"Three cheers for the Army’’ rahs Audrey Hamblen, a vivacious miss whose personality runs the gamut from the ridiculous to the sublime in a single hour.
Petite Miriam Hartzell is everyone's friend. Hef deep blue eyes cloud seriously as she bends diligently over her chemistry lesson or dance delightedly a she joins in the merry-making.
Feminine appearing Lee Homan is an athlete at heart concentrating on horse-back riding. Because of hef taste and taTent os a dress designer we think she I' be a Schiaparelli, 1955 version.
Anneliese Ickrath is so reserved and poised that you'd never believe that she wants to train and shovf horses and teach riding. For all her regal bearing her eyes dance when an impish mood seizes her.
Sunny disposition and smiling eyes this describe Marjorie Kobiela who goes out for sports with o true outdoorsman's love of a game.
22Peppy Virginia Liese possesses on adventurous spirit ond a bottomless store of energy. As head of the art association she spends quite a bit of time in Wade. In her remaining leisure hours she rides horse-back or devours sandwiches and cookies.
Startlingly white skin and raven hair complement each other in Charlotte Miller's sophisticated good-looks. Underneath the exotic exterior is a warmhearted, fun-loving girl who loathes hats and radishes.
Louise Netzhammer’s cute profile is shown off to its best advantage by a baby bob. Casual is her motto when she embarks on a shopping tour. Iggi's deep brown eyes and low-pitched voice add to her appeal.
Tall, blond Mary Alice Paine, industrious editor of the Times is a mile-a-minute conversationalist who uses arm-motions to illustrate her fantastic stories.
Painie can be most intelligent one minute and lots of fun the next.
When you see a figure walking down the hall with a swish and a purpose you know it's Pat Pringle, chairman of sponsors and president of International Relations Club. Conscientious is Pat's middle name.
Nothing can hurry Jayne Ruslander for she takes her own time at anything she does. Besides being proficient at the Ouija board, Russ is a William Tell with a bow and arrow.
Wee, blonde Rita Schwegel is a wizard with the needle and thread as well as sketching pencil. The clothes she designs and makes epitomize chic. A vie and stacks of records are her specialty.
Betty Jo Skelton is interested in archery and tennis. She should do well in her chosen field, kindergarten work, for her disposition is a model one.
ersatile,vitol Phyllis Smith excels in everything she does, be it acting, dancing, or singing. Her charm and poise make her a student council president to be proud of.
Smooth Nancy Warner wears clothes with a dash. She’s a globe-trotter from ’way back and is happiest when her bags are packed and she's ready for another jaunt. You’ll always find her with knitting needles in one hand and a bridge hand in the other.
Although Miriam Watkins won’t admit it, she has a fetching Southern accent. Enthusiastic, effervescent, and industrious she knits sweaters like an automaton. You should see the contraption she invented to keep her balls straight when she knits plaid sox.
Betty Wise commutes in a flashy convertible. She is a booster of all sports, but hockey and swimming are her favorites. When she croons in a husky alto and swings into a rhumba you think of Cuba.
Bright eyes and red hair go with Eleanor Yohe’s spicy disposition. At a moment s notice, Elno will rattle off whole sentences of authentic Spanish or break into a boogie-woogie dance step. Again she can do many a classic composition justice on the piano.
Happy-go-lucky Frances Kirkpatrick can always be counted on for a fourth at bridge. Willing, generous, sincere, she’s a grand friend.
We were glad when Bonnie McCollum came back to Monti for some extra work. We were sorry when she changed her plans. She’s an attractive blonde, bubbling over with personality.
Puckish Janet Root goes from one mishap to another. Most people would be overwhelmed with such a precarious existence, but it only adds to Jan’s enjoyment of life. Her twinkling eyes are serious only when she goes up to the art studio to work with her beloved paints.

In the kitchen on Thursday nights this year one could find a small group ol the domestically-inclined hoving "Fun With Foods" under the direction of Miss Helen Kropf. Each week they have taken up a different phase of cooking, beginning last fall with desserts and working back through dinner to the meat. The group has also met on Tuesdays for discussion of what to cook on Thursday, for trips to markets, and for technical discussions of foods. Products of the "Fun With Foods” Club have appeared frequently at Echo counter to the delight of those lucky enough to be there with nickels ready.

The chorus of thirty-five voices has contributed greatly to the beauty of the vesper services on Sunday. In addition, its public appearances have been enjoyed by those listening ana participating. They were: at the Alton Baptist Church, before the Alton Kiwanis Club, at Western Military Academy, over the radio on the Baldwin Hour, station KWK, before a district meeting cf the Federation of 'Aomen s Clubs in the Beniamin Godfrey Memorial, and at a home concert. Selections on these programs were drawn from the finest choral literature of all periods, in addition to the sacred music used at Vespers.

Volume VI of the Monticello Times appeared during this year, the work of some three dozen people who have given uncounted hours to its production. Those not on the staff have little idea of the labor which has gone into the undertaking: planning the reporters' assignments, rewriting after the reporters stories are turned in, editing, moking-up, reading proof, mailing the paper to parents and alumnae. Membership on the Times staff is not all hard work, for every girl remembers the Cabin picnics, the dinners in the faculty dining-room, the spreads in the publications office. And from Times work every member knows something of the fun of getting out a newspaper particularly when honor roll or election results are a carefully-guarded front-page secret.—■

Let’s go to Echo" causes the visitor to Monticello to wonder if she is hearing things, but to every Monti girl the words have vivid meaning, particularly if she's dieling. Echo means candy bars and cokes, popcorn and potato chips, mid-afternoon rest period and 9 o'clock pause from study. Profits from the counter make the yearbook possible without too great strain on the activities budget.
Ably assisted by Miss Helen Kropf, a group of volunteers runs this small store under the direction of the Echo manager. It is a Monticello institution. "Let's go to Echo."waif wmMimmvK .sawa

A tradition of many years standing at Monticello is the Washington's Birthday Banquet, which has, in recent years, completed the events in which the juniors are tested with exam and competitions before "calling."
The banquet this year followed the pattern of recent years, with seniors in Colonial costume and other guests in formal dress. On the evening program were toasts, the dancing of the minuet by eight seniors, and a junior skit, "The Rhumba of Time."
As the juniors sang their class song, written by Sue Vesper and Priscilla Alden, they rose in unison as an indication of their lasting friendship. The emblem of the class of 42, the profiles of three girls in front of the American flag, the work of Laurie Brewer, was then unveiled. The evening's climax came with the announcement of the class officers of 1942: Barbara Filch,president; Olive Rail, vice-president; Jerry Leeman, secretary,- and Priscilla Alden, treasurer.
The theme of the banquet was a patriotic one with flower and other decorations carrying out the red white, and blue so stunningly depicted in the emblem. Sponsors of the two classes, who assisted them valiantly through the weeks of work preceding the banquet, are Mrs. Jennie Dyke Grainger for the seniors, and Miss Naomi Hade for the juniors.

The Athletic Association has for its purpose giving every girl a chance to participate in athletic activities other than her gym classes. The Monticello Athletic Association board is chosen from the Athletic Association, which includes every student at Monticello, to act as an executive body which sponsors parties, field day demonstrations, athletic banquets, and the awarding of numerals.Archery
Archery is becoming one of the most popular sports—o trend that is reflected by large class enrollment at Monticello. Lost fall, a Prep team composed of Jane Miller Lee Harter, Dorothy O'Donnell, Marguerite Craggett, Margery Adler, and Betty Mather entered a national tournament for secondary school girls and made a good showing.
In the spring, a College team participated in a national tournament lor college students. New equipment was added in the spring which promoted even greater interest.
In addition to regular classes, voluntary archery meets twice a week with coaching. Anyone who had had some instruction was allowed to use the equipment and shoot whenever she had time and inclination. Jayne Ruslander was the archery manager.
Seventeen of Monti’s best swimmers compose the Swimming Club which has met every Thursday night for pleasure as well as for work on endurance, speed, and formations.
To become a member of this club, one must be able to swim three strokes in good form, execute a plain front dive, and swim eight consecutive lengths of the pool.
The club is divided into two groups a relay team and a formations team. Relay team members compete with other schools, as well as among themselves, for speed and form in swimming. The formations group works out various water patterns for demonstrations, aided by the club’s sponsor, Mrs. Jennie Dyke Grainger.
This year training rules were enforced to enable the girls to swim with greater endurance.

Badminton has had a profitable year as, both indoors and out, the shuttle-cocks flew back and forth over the net. Because this game could be played during all three seasons, many Monti girls have participated at some time or another. Winifred Evans was the badminton manager.
Eight girls played badminton in the winter sports demonstration on March 29. Participating in the elementary doubles were Shirley Heagler, Bel'y Mather, Carolyn Scharff, Marie Schenk. Frances Clark, Constance Pym, Belmont Thomas, and Nancy Warner played in the advanced doubles.

Drive and approach contests on Spring Field Day climax another season of golf enjoyed by many, with Shirley Heagler, Helen Putman, Jane Lamkins, Miriam Watkins, and Winifred Evans, golf manager, among the most ardent. Trips to the municipal links and box lunch picnics following them give golf in the spring added zest as do the faculty and student competitions which come about because Miss Dear, Dr. Jackson, and Dr. Young are avid followers of the ancient Scottish game. Class or voluntary, fall or spring, even indoors in rainy weather, golf has been fun at Monticello this year.

r.RWhen the girls arrived at school last fall, they soon discovered that four new tennis courts had been built at the rear of the riding ring. As a result, tennis was offered as a voluntary sport both in the fall and spring. The girls participating practiced two afternoons each week in order to get the required number of hours for sports credit.
Because tennis is the most popular sport in the spring, a ladder tournament was played with the high-point girls in this tournament forming a college tennis team scheduled to play competition matches with other schools. Under the coaching of Miss Elaine Dear and Mrs. Jennie Dyke Grainger, many girls became interested in this game of "deuce your add." Virginia Liese was the tennis manager.
The athletic awards are the Monti-cello Blazer, College and Preparatory School Letters, and College and Preparatory School Numerals.
The Blazer is awarded at the end of the winter sports season to College seniors as a signal honor for all-round ability judged by sportsmanlike conduct in all activities; contribution to the Athletic Association other than playing on teams; proficiency and versatility in athletic activities; and regular participation in organized sports.
Students are eligible for Letters after four formal seasons of participation in voluntary sports or dance sponsored by the A. A. Numerals are awarded after two seasons of participation in voluntary sports.

Three sports banquets- - hockey on December 6, riding on February 1, and basketball on March 29 were high spots not only for those participating, but for those who enjoyed the fun from ring-side tables.
Following brief speeches, awards were given at the hockey banquet to six who had qualified for numerals and letters. The climax of the evening came with the announcement of the 1941-42 manager, lo Ann Spiva. A ping-pong toble doubled for a hockey field to form the center of the decorative scheme. On it small dolls represented the two Monticello teams in action.
The second banquet followed an afternoon of riding events which centered about a pageant showing the history of riding in America, beginning with Cortez, and an Open Barn which took many non-riders to the stables for hot cider and a glimpse of the rogues' gallery in the newly-decorated tackroom. At dinner, guests wore riding costume, varying from formal habits to cowboy boots and jeans, with a few exceptions, notably Mr, Homer Young's racetrack bookie s outfit. Decorations were horses of wood, metal, plastic, classic and modern, of many sizes. Even the printed menu was in the spirit of a thoroughly horsey day a feed-bag. Speakers wont through their paces under the direction of Gayle Foster, ringmaster.
Sports Day, marking the close of the winter season, ended with the basketball banquet which in turn was climaxed with the awarding of three Monticello blazers by Miss Dear. Letters and numerals wont to many on this occasion, announced by Marcella Coleman, who four days before had been elected to head M.A.A. for 1941-42. The banquet closed with the singing of a new marching song, the joint product of Jayne Ruslander and Priscilla Alden.

And we dieted ... in 1940-41Au Revoir
In this Echo we have recorded another year the one hundred and third of campus life at Monticello. That this is an imperfect record we well know. Imperfect in putting into words and pictures the fun, the work, the progress, the achievements of this year. Imperfect in touching upon the life-time friendships formed, the lessons learned, the responsibilities accepted, the opportunities lost, the crises met, the battles won.
Even as we write Au Revoir, a new editorial group buries its head, figuratively, in plans for another Echo, another year. There is no coming to a neat period, a full stop; there is time but for a brief pause, a comma's worth. So it has been for one hundred and three years; so may it be for unnumbered years to come!
