THOSE HAVING LAMPS WILL PASS THEM ON TO OTHERS Our President Great men are they who see that spirit- ual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world. Dr. Samuel Belkin To the Seniors of Stern College for Women : As you complete your education at Stern College for Women, I extend to you my sincerest congratulations and wish you every success in your future endeavors. Your outstanding scholastic attainments reflect honor upon yourselves, your families, and your Alma Mater. The Jewish woman throughout history has contributed immeasurably to the welfare of our people. Traditionally, she has been the first teacher of our youth, introducing them to the vast treasures of Jewish culture. Hers has been the respon- sibility of imbuing the home with the spirit of Godliness that is the sole foundation for the truly moral life. Because of her immense influence for good, the home has been characterized as a major sanctuary of our faith. Thus, the Jewish woman has made possible the continuation of our sacred heritage down through the ages. With the coming of modern times, a new dimension of experience was added to the life of the Jewish woman. Now she could play a vital role in the general community, utilizing her special insights in an ever-widening area of activities. Law, medicine, the physical sciences . . . these and many other fields offered her untold opportunities for personal fulfillment and professional advancement. This occurrence brought the need for a special kind of education. Neither the religious training alone, usually acquired in the home, nor the usual general school- ing could adequately prepare the Jewish woman for her new position. Rather, a unique harmonizing of the two was required. It was to make available this new kind of education that Stern College was established. Here the arts and sciences of the western world are perpetuated together with the time-honored practices and teachings of Judaism. Here the modern woman can devote herself to the complete development of her capabilities as a Jewess and as a student of western culture. You who have benefited from this comprehensive training bear the obligation of carrying on the traditions of Torah even as you enter into your various chosen professions. I trust that you will meet this challenge with distinction, dedicating yourselves to a lifetime of service to the Jewish community and all humanity. Our Deans Still achieving, still pursuing.

Esther Cohen, Tasya Stone, Barbara Rosen, Effie Fink, Shirli Pasternak, Judith Borvick, Martelle Urivetsky, Rachael Apher. A school such as Stern College, with students from so many diversified backgrounds, requires a unifying influence. Student Council serves this purpose. Through our club program, we have tried to pro- vide opportunities for expression in the arts. The Forum series, with speakers from various walks of life, was meant to stimulate thought on topics not included in classroom material. Our social affairs were planned to enable the students and their guests to spend enjoyable and entertaining evenings in our midst. This year showed tremendous progress in our newspaper, The Observer. With the tireless endeavors of the editors and their staff, and with the financial backing of Student Council, we saw the paper develop from a two page beginning to a six page Purim issue. In this yearbook, we see another literary accomplish- ment, again the work of devoted editors aided by Stu- dent Council. This year also marked the inauguration of informal meetings between Student Council and the administra- tion, thereby providing an avenue of discussion for all problems. Much has been accomplished this year to expand the extra-curricular activities of our school. I bid the future officers to carry their responsibility with addi- tional vigor and idealism so that Stern College can be- come a greater source of pride to its parent institution and the Jewish world. 31 Senior Class Officers Rachael Apher President Standing : Dorothy Gewirtz Treasurer Rena Genauer Secretary Martelle Urivetsky Vice-President SilliS ISlSSSlS S 34 m Co-op Susan Davis, Max Celnik (Faculty advisor), Genia Prager ■ Newspaper 36 Barbara Rosen, Rosilyn Stein, Esther Rivkin, Evelyn Weiss, Vera Lobl, Roberta Reiss, Rita Markowitz, Sue Jacobson, Dorene Parsons Standing : Sema Chaimovitz, Judith Rosenberg, Ricki Twerski, Dvorah Wilamowsky.

MierleLadertnan. ' el Authors A of introductions Judith Rosenberg What hides behind the friendly smiling face Of new acquaintances who grasp the hand In such firm clasps? So soon, I cannot place This personality. Its crinkled, bland, And unfamiliar mask prevents my eye From knowledge of elusive heart or soul. I try to probe his mind and find if my Companion really laughs, or plays a role. Perhaps his character is evil, weak, Or, likely, the impression that he makes Is true. I do not know, and so I speak Of trivia — on guard against mistakes. And yet, whatever proves to be the case I answer always with a smiling face. Two native boys carted the trunks, suitcases, and nu- merous odd packages to a small American-made truck. Fennette looked on with dismay as the paraphernalia that made up her entire household was tossed into a precarious pile in the truck and secured with lengths of rope. One of the boys then perched himself upon this heap while the second clambered into the cab and pushed the door open for Fennette. But Mrs. Fennette Shaw didn ' t move. She stood by the simple wooden train platform feeling angry and lost. No one had bothered explaining anything to her. Not even Jonathan had met her at the train. There had been just these two Negro boys who had approached her, asked her name, and upon confirming it had begun to cart off her belongings. She was indignant at their callous behavior and disappointed at the small reception that she had received. Fennette did not hold the door that was pushed ajar for her. It slammed shut. The boy slid impatiently across the seat and held the door open. She lifted her skirts and stepped up. The motor roared and the car went bouncing off over the bumpy roads. Fennette shut her eyes and tried to make reasonable sense of the situation. She knew little about the country and cared less. This venture into South Africa was the result of years of dreaming and ambitious desire on the part of her hus- band. She did not share his enthusiasm. She thought little of the plantation and the wealth of tradition and labor that had built it. She wished her husband had never undertaken the partnership that meant her leaving England, family, and friends. In the new modern cities sprouting in South Africa she found little of the staid personality of her English town. England was classic and polished; Africa was an uncut stone. Africa was dirt roads, boiling sun, mosquito nets, and black people. It was nightfall when they arrived at the plantation. Jonathan ran to meet her as the truck came to a stop by the house. Fennette saw immediately that he was happy. She could not miss it in the appearance of the man who in sweeping strides came to greet her — tan, youthfully healthy, and happy. He kissed her warmly and she forgot Africa and dirt roads. It was good to feel home again and, after all, Jonathan was home. The doubts and fears that had cluttered her mind would wait for expression. Jonathan raised an imaginary glass and toasted her. " Here ' s to us, " he said. " To you, me and Africa. " She smiled. I ' ll try, she thought. I ' ll try for you, Jona- than. Jonathan slipped his arm ' around the tiny, cor- seted waist and together they walked towards the white house. He turned to Fennette before they stepped through the doorway. " Shut your eyes, " he said. " There ' s a special surprise waiting for you. " She shut her eyes and laughed a nervous laugh. Jonathan led her through the hall and entered a large .sitting room. " Now, " he said. " We ' re here. " She opened her eyes. " This is the rest of our family, " she heard him saying. She gazed at the figures standing in the room. Jona- than hadn ' t told her they would be Negro figures. She felt a chill. Jonathan was speaking. " This is Tom. He takes care of all the work to be done in the fields and knows everything there is to know about the soil and planting. He ' s our miracle man. A lot depends on Tom ... " She nodded stiffly to the wizened man. His wife stood silently by him and Fennette nodded to her. Tom ' s daughter, Samy, and her husband stood with their 42 young boy between them. Silently they stared. Jonathan continued. " Samy will help you in the house. Tom raised her here with the white people who owned the plantation before us. Her English is perfect. She ' s an excellent cook, seamstress, and talker. " Samy smiled shyly. She approached Fennette slowly, then stopped and looked up at her. She would be glad to have a friend again. The little boy who clung to his mother ' s leg stared with large brown eyes at the new mistress. Fennette was uncomfortable. Why did they stare so? What did they want? The girl smiled. She raised her hand and touched the sleeve of Fennette ' s blouse. " Missee have nice fancy dress. " Fennette felt with horror the touch. of the black girl ' s hand on her arm. She felt a burn as though she had been stung. With one flash her hand whipped out and struck the face of the girl. " Don ' t touch me! " she screamed. Dumfounded at her own action, she stood fixed. The naked child felt the fear and anger of his mother and began to wail. Only then was Fennette released from the shock of the blow and ran trembling with a mixture of rage and tear from the room. She plunged her hand into a bowl of washing water and scrubbed the spot that had been touched. She could still feel the sting. It was horrible. Jonathan found her like that. He caught her by the shoulders and she turned away embarrassed. It was as though she had known it would happen this way. She hoped Jonathan wouldn ' t preach. She didn ' t think she could bear it. Then Jonathan was speaking. " We ' ll work it out, " he promised. " But you ' ve got to help, Fennette. You can ' t be petty and impersonal. Pride runs as deep and as real in Tom and his family as it does in your own self. " It was like Tom to think of pride when Fennette could think of these people only as animals — grasping, dirty animals. " This is not your English society. Just as you were testing Samy for the polish of those in your world so was she testing you — for feeling. She wanted you as a friend. You failed her, Fennette. You failed the very first time around. " She wanted to laugh. She wanted to laugh and to tell him just how it didn ' t matter. But she knew how shocked he would be. She didn ' t care to see that look on his face. She was alone. She thought of Jonathan ' s words. Failed. She had not thought that she could fail at any- thing. And yet — no. She would show Jonathan that she had not failed. She would show him . . . tomorrow. The morning sun had climbed high in the sky when Fennette awoke. She washed and dressed hurriedly. Be- fore leaving her room she pulled out a small box from her dresser and put its contents into her pocket. She slipped out of her room and avoided the kitchen from where came the voices of Jonathan and Tom. Once out- side, she caught sight of Samy leading one of the mules to the water trough. Fennette called to her. The young girl dropped the rein over the mule ' s head and turned to face Fennette wh o hastened to reach her. The girl did not move. Fennette approached her and smiled un- easily. Then she began to speak. " You must forgive me for last night, Samy. I meant no harm to you. " The girl did not stir. " Let ' s forget about this. The whole thing was rather silly. Look. See what I brought for you. " She pulled something from her pocket. The two earrings shone in the sunlight. " Real pearls. " She stretched out her hand to the girl. " Look. For you. Take them. " Samy stepped back; her hands remained still at her side. Fennette looked into the girl ' s face for the lirst time. She was not prepared for what she saw in those wide eyes. The hurt that filled those deep brown pools could have filled a world with sorrow. Samy turned and ran towards the house. The pearl earrings felt like lead weights in Fennette ' s hand. They slipped through her fingers and dropped to the ground. She had tempted Samy much as a child would coax a cat with a piece of fish. Samy was person. Samy was pride. Fennette did not realize that she was running too and screaming to the girl who fled before her. " Wait Samy! Please wait. " Suddenly it mattered very much. Suddenly this was the most important thing in the world. Fennette ran and called and finally reached Samy by the house. Samy stopped at the steps but did not turn. Fennette touched the bare brown arm. The girl ' s body stiffened. " Please, Samy. " Samy turned, her head drooping. A tear splashed on Fennette ' s cheek. She was surprised. She had not cried in a long time. 43 loneliness Linda Sucherman As early as man, as old as is loneliness; yea, before there was man, there was aloneness. G-d was alone — He created man; Adam was alone — thus G-d gave him Eve. Two kinds of aloneness. Abraham was lonely — he hungered for a son; My mother is lonely — she misses her daughter — Four kinds of loneliness. The unmarried, who want to be married, are lonely; orphans are lonely; the mentally ill are sometimes ex- tremely lonely; and prisoners, even though under shells of pretense, may be very lonely — eight kinds of lone- liness. I am lonely; my cat is lonely. Ten kinds of loneliness. My father was lonely, but now he is no more — abated loneliness. G-d ' s aloneness was of a completely solitary kind — of being absolutely alone. There is only one G-d, He is One, there is no other; He has independent existence, yet the existence of every other particle in the Uni- verse upon Him depends. Yet, why did G-d create man? He surely did not need him, for if G-d needs, then G-d is not independent, but G-d is independent, there- fore G-d did not need man. And was G-d actually alone? He had the angels — why did G-d want the com- pany of man? What was their role in comparison with the role of man? But what were the angels to G-d? Could He give them His Torah — Did He need to tell them not to steal, to obey His commands? No, this re- lationship could be only between G d and man. For G-d without man was as a king without subjects — He was alone, therefore he created man — for just as a king must have subjects to fulfill his sovereignty, so G-d had to have the loving worship of man to make His world complete. G-d ' s aloneness was unique — never again would anything be as alone as G-d was, never again could anything be alone in the way that He was. How great was the creation of man! The exhilaration of existence, the breath of life, all bound into the spirit which G-d had chosen before all His earthly creations, had placed immediately after His heavenly ones! Then, suddenly, his exhilaration must have ceased with the abrupt awareness that he, Adam Harishon, was alone, completely, though not solitarily alone. Ruler of all the earth — yet apart from his subjects; master of his every deed — yet requiring something he lacked. Adam was lonely, the first human loneliness. He viewed all that went on about him, yet he could not enter in — it was not of his kind, he lacked a companion of his own nature. Surrounded by all the signs of G-d ' s greatness, His infinite presence, yet outside of it all, he was not yet ready to receive the Torah. Yes, Adam was lonely yet his loneliness was a latent one, for how could he have realized he was alone? Yet G-d, as He understood what being alone meant to Adam, felt Adam ' s loneli- ness, knew it was not good; therefore G-d gave him Eve. Abraham desired a son; he had a companion, there- fore he was not lonely after the manner of Adam. But if Abraham had a companion, then why was he lonely? Yet Abraham was truly lonely, for his was the promise of a great father — he craved the posterity which would fulfill this promise. With human longing he yearned for the son who would make his life complete just as a man had made God ' s world complete and a wife had fulfilled Adam ' s. His loneliness was one of anxiety, yet how can this be termed loneliness? And if G-d had never promised him posterity, he might never have been anxious! Still, Abraham had the natural anxiety of a parent yearning for a child. And Abraham was truly ■lonely, for although he had a companion, he could not share this loneliness — his anxiety — with her, the very reason for his loneliness — her barrenness! His anxiety was alone, within him. My mother ' s loneliness is also that of a parent for a child, but it is not comparable to that of Abraham, for her promise has been fulfilled, the anxiety which Abra- ham felt has already ceased in her and been replaced by fresh anxieties which a mother is compelled to feel for her child, to miss him, to crave only a little while with him, to know that all is well. My mother ' s is the loneliness of the absent person, yet if my mother had no child, she would still be lonely; she would still yearn for what she knows might have been hers; she would still be alone. At first the loneliness of spinsters and bachelors who desire marriage, but for some reason are unable to attain their goal, might be considered similar to Adam ' s. Possibly so, for, in a sense, they are alone. There is a difference; the unmarried view all that goes on about them, as Adam did, yet they can enter in. It is not for- bidden them, rather it is commanded them. Yet it is beyond their reach, so near, yet so far. Theirs is the loneliness of having, yet not possessing. Orphans, although surrounded with companions of their own nature, possess one of the deepest kinds of loneliness known, the loneliness of insecurity. Of the physical necessities of life, they have enough, even to the extent of possessing some non-necessities, yet they crave needs beyond those of the body. They long for affection, for the individuality which only a family can provide, to be one in a family instead of one of many. Theirs is the loneliness of not belonging. The mentally ill, though they may be surrounded with care and carers, are lonely, a loneliness within them- selves, a self-imposed loneliness, a wall which ironically strengthens its fortifications as the loneliness takes firmer grasp . . . and deepens, a self-crushing loneliness. Comparable to this is the loneliness of prisoners who are sealed within themselves, whose loneliness adds to their thick-veneered walls of close-mouthedness, of pent-up feelings. Their inability to forget, their desire to disas- sociate, their lack of morals, all strengthen their loneli- ness, as with the mentally ill. But the loneliness of the sick and that of the imprisoned are not similar; despite all his feelings, the prisoner yearns for the outside world; the sick fear it. I am lonely. Friends cannot fill the void of my lone- liness, for they cannot be with me all the time; I would not want them to be with me all the time. The one who can fill my void is also lonely and cannot be with me. I am still traveling, unsure and unsettled, an insignificant tack in a box of many. And I have not yet found my- self. Mine is the loneliness of many forms, plus the lone- liness of being lost. My cat is lonely, the loneliness of a dumb animal for its favorite caressing, nourishing hand. But my father is no longer lonely, for surely loneli- ness stops at the grave! But what is this, which starts before man, yet stops at his grave? Which sets man apart, where alone or even in a crowd, which gnaws at his very heart, which claims his very joys of life, his happiness! What is this loneli- ness which is synonomous with fear, yea, even desola- tion! Is it an emotion — to conquer? Or a state of being — to live with? Or is it an. eternal attribute of life, of being alone, even within oneself? aO raymond Mierle Laderman Raymond Pedraza was a child of the not-quite de- mocracy, a Mexican with a seed of dignity newly planted in his mind. He was the product of careful guidance by devoted teachers — interested because of a hunch, a possibility of taking a receptive kid from the slums and educating him, cultivating him. Yet, he was at the same time a product of the slum, a kid " from under the viaduct, " accepted there because his brains were surrounded and protected by lightning- muscle. He breathed slum air and talked slum talk — that is, to everyone except himself and his mother to whom he always made certain to switch to good English; the switch in language he made automatically like changing to a Sunday jacket before seeing the priest. So, his teachers pricked him with devoted teachers ' special provoking-ideas. They watched as he nurtured these thoughts — sensing, wordlessly, his growing curios- ity as one fondles a familiar object unafraid in the dark; understanding why this interest was visibly underplayed among his friends, complying with his subconscious wish not to stand out, not to get the best grade. Raymond valued his acceptability. It was bad enough to be toler- ated by the others from outside. It would be unbearable to be tolerated from within the circle too, far more livable to be one of the men. Internally, in thelast few years, his mind had been penetrating steadily deeper, ever discovering virgin channels of contemplation. He wandered in these twi- light-caverns increasingly, found great enjoyment prob- ing the nebulous objects looming there, dimly present- ing themselves to his introspection. For the most part these excavations were kept care- fully hidden, but sometimes, in polar moods — very gay, very depressed, he would dare to present one making sure to garb it beforehand in enough slum-jargon for passability, not to expose himself too painfully. " Hey dad, " he would begin, " how does this idea hit ya? . . . " On Saturday, when it began, he got up at 5 a.m., stealthily creeping off the couch that doubled as his bed in the living room-bedroom-kitchen. He moved noise- lessly to the bathroom so as not to wake his mother and sat cramped in the cracked bathtub to study a little more history before going to work. There would be no time later; Saturday night was flick night for the men. Alone, he was completely absorbed, reading vora- ciously, pondering, soaking up the experiences, the joys, the pains that men had felt tens and hundreds of years ago, feeling the sweep of past history that marched inevitably to something different, perhaps to the Bet- ter, perhaps ... He worried during these moments, and he worried more and more as his knowledge grew. The uncomfortably familiar ring of the mistakes of genera- tions ago were disquieting. But he did not react visibly. He meticulously folded up the worries as he did his other treasures and stored them away in his mind. " Raymond, Raymond! Eeet ees eight o ' clock. " The shrill voice pinged through the air. His startled eyes met the black ones of his mother. " You weel.be late for the work, " she said scoldingly, but the crinkled lines around her eyes betrayed her amusement. He did not move with his customary agility but sat back and en- joyed his mother ' s amusement for a moment. It was so rare that lightness croosed her face that he wanted to soak up its brief warmth. He smiled with her, then realized what it was she was smiling at and climbed clumsily out of the bathtub. All through the day he thought about what he had read. Even when he met Tete, John and the other " slobs " in front of the Kreme Kup that night his mind was preoccupied. They quickly decided on The Young Lions. " Lotsa rumble and wenches. Can ' t beat that, aaay Ramo? " whooped John. They clattered down the street looking, if not fashion- able, uniform — from their horse-shoe taps on the heels of their clods, beating together in the " step, " to their tight jeans with fastidiously rolled one inch-high cuffs, to their turned-up collars, to their vaselined duck-tails. They looked, if they admitted it themselves, " sharp. " " THE YOUNG LIONS THE SPECTACU- LAR HORRORS OF WAR SHOWN AS THEY HAVE NEVER DARED BEEN SHOWN BEFORE " flashed on and off across the massive billboard. " War, " a thought flickered across Raymond ' s mind, " it enter- tains us now, because we ' ve forgotten what it was like. " The thought faded as he gracefully slithered into his seat into the accepted posture, the slump, ready to enjoy himself, to put his worries away for awhile. Yet, during the movie, something happened. With the growth of the plot, another growth, a long crescen- do, began in Raymond ' s very being, slowly — then with cataclysmic speed. He had no control. His dusky cav- erns which had been such pleasurable thought-hide- aways were suddenly blindingly illuminated; their in- distinct objects well-up — crystallized, their outlines razor sharp. One by one their faces took on the actors ' faces; they spoke not script lines, but his lines. These were his thoughts, his concern. He knew now. War, sheer terror, gloryless terror, ripping pieces of bone of skin, blotting out chunks of life, people clinging to party lines — propaganda lines wanting to believe with all their strength, to believe that someone somewhere knew they were Right, lest they submit— lest they go mad! The incidental music ... the drums were not drums but his heart pounding, smashing, resounding in his temples. He clutched his seat, teeth gritted, looking quickly at his companions beside him, hoping that they had, not no- ticed. Desperately he tried to control his responses yet could not stop his racing mind and looked on, drugged. " How could those stupid people get dragged so low? By the time of the war their big ideals, if they ever had any, have gone up in smoke. They ' re animals — they ' re lousy animals! " he thought, then included himself with humanity. " Why are we so damn interested in our little troubles? We get so wrapped up in our worries, we don ' t even see that the world ' s collapsing under our feet! " The words blared in his ears. And finally, it was over. It was not mere chance that Raymond was so in- fluenced by the movie. It had been acclaimed every- where as an excellent movie, a movie with a startling story to tell. For once, the directors had given it to them straight, undiluted, and quite forgot to include the gingerbread, the heart-stirring marches, the usual mili- tary hi-jinks. No, just stink and disaster and . . . war. A few feet behind the men, he half-stumbled into the bright lobby, deep in thought, his hands thrust deeply in his pockets. " I ' ve got to do something. Even if the rest are going to sit like rocks. We are making the same mistakes, the same lousy mistakes that they made ten thousand years ago. I ' ve got to holler at them — to do something. " He glared at the noisy crowds around him, smiling, talking, silent, some bored, some girls laughing at how they had been crying. " They ' re . . . peacocks, that ' s it — peacocks — vain animals . . . strut, strut . . . worry about me, not you ... I ' m much too beautiful. " It choked him. He wanted to shake someone, but his fists just clenched up tight in his pockets. A sing-song voice came floating in as they reached the street. " What babes! " Tete ' s voice irritated him strangely. " Those German-boys had the right idea. ' Hey babe ' they ' d say, ' Hey baby, let ' s make a little love for the Big Man, aay baby? ' " Raymond ' s head ached terribly. " Shut up, Tete, " he growled. " Yeah mano, you ain ' t bein ' patriotic. Just gotta be patriotic, " John said cheerfully. " Why le ' ss be so patri- otic, we just march ourselves down to Kreme Kup ' s back room and drink some joy-juice for good ole Uncle Sam. Sound off, men, one-two-three-four . . . " " Yeah, I gotta gal in Kansas City. She ' s gotta . . . " He could not stand it. Just the sight of these boys lining up ludicrously to march through the crowd nauseated him. Without really considering, he threw away his " rank " and lashed out at them. " Who the hell d ' you bums think you are? " he demanded in a clearly audible voice, disregarding the gawking stares of the people around him. " Oh, I forgot, you don ' t think — you strut. The facts are handed to you on a platter and you don ' t see them. All you got to worry about is the gash, the wine, the ' kicks. ' We ' re all falling apart and you got to talk about the babes! " He turned swiftly to walk away alone. But, a claw-like hand was on his shoulder shoving him over to a dark building. " Look, guy, " John swung him around and thrust his face next to Raymond ' s. " I don ' t take that from anybody — gringos, the ' heat ' — even from you. I don ' t know what ' s achin ' you, but don ' t vomit it all over us. " By this time .the rest of the men had caught up and surrounded the pair. " What ' s wrong, Ramo — yer old lady spank you? taunted one. " What ' s wrong, Ramo, chicken of the girls? Always suspicioned you ' s chicken of the girls. " Raymond ' s nails dug deeper into his palms. He wanted to say something, to explain, but he realized it was useless. He would be lucky to get out without being knifed. He glared at them knowing not to say a word. This was part of the old game. But it was the first time he had played this role. He was out now. It would be en- tirely useless to explain. He had broken the most holy of commandments. So he glared sullen-eyed at the creditors of the vanished normalcy he had known. Si- lently as if in a religious ritual they left, each watching over his shoulder as long as he could see, using his toughest look; Raymond glared back until they turned the corner, then walked home slowly. He kept silent the whole next day: praying for cour- age in Church and judging himself, putting himself on trial until evening. There was no other choice. He was externally calmer now but as agitated inside as before. He would simply have to do something — actively. He began on his mother. He surveyed her quietly, as if she were a stranger, deciding what tactics to employ. She was cleaning, as usual. If she were not cleaning, she would probably be praying or sitting very straight in the hardwood chair by the table. She seldom spoke. Her tightly-drawn mouth looked like an old purse with the purse-strings drawn very tight. He wondered what she thought about when she sat in that chair, looking straight ahead. Their relationship, by normal standards, he guessed, was unusual. They shared no good times with each other. Actually, when he thought about it, they did not love each other. Instead, they shared a fierce pride in each other, in the unmouthed sense of accom- plishment that they were not trash, not the low element in their society. " Mama, " he began, " I want to speak to you. " He had shed his jargon, as always, as he entered the house. She would not permit it to be otherwise. She moved to the hard chair, sat down, and folded her hands in her lap. " Where is our flag, Mama? Our American flag. " Before she could answer, he recalled its location and strode to the cabinet to get it. Gingerly, he carried it back and laid it on her lap. How he knew this flag! Regularly on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans ' Day, for as long as he could remember, his mother had care- fully unfolded the flag and hung it over the porch for all day. She would never comment about it. It was a duty to be done without flowery words. At night, she would unfasten it, fold it meticulously, as she did every- thing else, and put it back in its resting place. " You understand, Mama, this flag means something to you. " He knelt in front of her, resting his hands on her bony knees and gazing into her unblinking eyes. Softly, he related all his thoughts to her, fearlessly, be- cause he felt an affinity for her silence, her seriousness. " I have got to do something, he finished calmly, Ameri- ca has the right government and the right ideas. It ' s the people, the peacock-people who are smothering her. " 48 Hoarse, he stopped, waiting for a reply. A pause. " For thees, " she whispered harshly, " for thees you threw away friends. Raymondito, Raymondito, what has thees country done for you? The beeg gringos step on your face and grind eet eento the dust. Ahhh, you traded a dirty Mexico for a feelthy America. " She put a hand on his cheek. It was a coarse hand with cracked skin and enlarged knuckles that had worked and hurt for many years. She tightened her hold and bent very close to his face. " Do not push, Raymond, just be quiet and act like a good Americano to them because you must, then eet weel be more easy for you. " She withdrew her hand and rose, letting the flag slip to the floor. Looking at her son, she asked, " Do you know what I theenk of thees country?- " She spat and left the room. He clutched the flag to his heart and rocked with it back and forth, as if to console a hurt child, back and forth to alleviate his paining shame. Throughout the night he held it close staring, wretched, at the wall. By sun-up Raymond was out of the house on his way to school. He walked around the neighborhood for hours until he heard the warning bell. He did not run to class. It was difficult to be alone. He skirted the smoking-area, quickening his step, hoping he would not be seen by the men who usually inhaled their last drag immediately before the bell to sustain them all the way through Current World Problems. He sat in the back waiting tensely for Mr. Whittacker. He could help, inspire, surely he w ould show him what to do. This teacher was the most intense of the devoted, and Raymond felt it. " Ah, to be like that, to be aware of the facts, to be willing to sacrifice . . . " Mr. Whit- tacker ' s deep voice interrupted his thought. " Well, class, " he began and the class became silent. He hesitated, then picked up the newspaper on his desk. " You know, I ' m rather discouraged with the world today. You go along year after year hoping for improve- ment and something like this happens. " He flicked the paper with the back of his hand. " He ' s going to let us have it, " thought Raymond feeling himself thankfully on dry land again yet appre- hensive for this was the last piece of dry land left. " He feels the same thing — I bet half the class doesn ' t even know what he ' s hopped up about. " He moved forward in his desk. " Pardon me for my cynicism this morning, " the teacher continued, " but the same strategic blunder here in the Far East has been made time and time again. You know, this reminds me of a saying one of my old professors once said; mind you, I scoffed at it then — he said: ' No one ever learns anything from history. The only thing one learns from history is that no one ever learns from history. ' " The pleasantry hit Raymond with a crushing thud. " If he . . . " he choked with the terror filling his throat. Angrily, he darted from the room. Air! He could not breathe! " Pedraza — hey . . . " the teacher yelled, and Tete snickered. Raymond heard the two sounds as he ran down the deserted hall. Run, he must run away from here. Away! He ran hard pushing the ground away from under his feet. He ran through the clumps of people, away from their talk, from their movement. Run. Run. Run. He found himself on a lot, a large, desolate lot in the middle of the slum. " An empty lot like me, " then he noticed its only inhabitant was a garbage can; he smiled bitterly. He strode over to it and surveyed it for an in- stant. Then, he punched it will all the fury that had been swarming at the bottom of his gut. SMASH! The garbage lid lifted high in the air and landed many feet away, rattling as it rocked slowly to the charred weeds. " Eeholay, the sucker, " he hissed, licking his bleeding hand — then stopped short . . . " You too, Raymo, you ' re no damn better than the peacocks. Big deal, all you got is a bloody hand. You gotta bloody hand. You gotta bloody hand that you ' re gonna suck and nurse and re- member every time you start to beat your head against the wall. And pretty soon, you ' ll forget and grow nice- colored feathers and stick out your scrawny chest and worry about your Big Troubles like all the other slobs. " He did not realize it, but he had shed his self-to-self " Sunday jacket; " he was talking loud now. His was not a normally loud voice but a deep, ugly chant — a new tone. He squinted his eyes and took a long look at the city, the gray busy city on a graying afternoon, at its nondescript people " strutting " here and there. Slowly he turned around, looking at each of the dingy old build- ings that surrounded the big lot, taking deliberate steps to examine each in turn. Leaning back, he peered in- tently at the outline of the soot-fringed skyscrapers piercing the dreary sky with their slender steeples, while he made, once again, a complete circle, slamming each foot heavily on the shattered weeds beneath. Raymond Pedraza twitched his shoulders back. Slowly, decisively, he straightened his body; the muscles in his neck stood out taut against the cream- brown skin; those of his legs strained to rock-like still- ness as his toes contracted quickly as if to grasp the very ground. He started walking swiftly back toward Conejos Street; suddenly his whole body was caught in one wracking sigh. His head drooped; he inhaled sharply. And all alone on the empty lot, he cried. please turn to page for start of hebrew literary section 49 trm ?Nsn p d am mt? w pro im mtn ipn Hp nan " iw mini nisia na nanca rn Ki rpnx: no ' jv K n ity ny 7t? minn nsrya minn nrp it ty w-ity njj .p«i n-w ipina n« T nn7 no-wan n7tDio o in n 7y nxa ny7 5 b mrs .K-iian nnnsa man7i ,pix ,1BT7 n7iyn «uitr ly .lmiyno p7n Kin coyn pa 7K " iB " i ny .

Pittsburgh, Pa. class history summon up remembrance of things past , It was hot that day in August ' 55 when the letter arrived. The first line read " Dear Member of the Class of 1959. " 1959, how far-away and unreal that date seemed, yet somehow, the four years have flown by and we are no longer the class of the future, but rather that of the present. Reminisce with us, for what is the pur- pose of a Class History if not to wax sentimental over the fun and tears of your college life. From the first moment the dorm girls entered its lobby, the Hotel Duane became their home. The weeks of September ' 55 were a flurry of getting unpacked and becoming accustomed to classes. No sooner were we settled, then it was time to go home for Yom Tov. Al- though we had been away only three weeks, we were a little different now. We spoke knowingly of credits, cur- fews, and ch emistry — a few of us spoke not too happily of chemistry, for one in our midst dropped a full bottle of mercury in the first lab period and two others were sudden additions to the chem classes as soon as they had a good look at the frogs in biology. (No names please!) In October, we had become well enough acquainted to hold class elections. Debbie Kolitch, Effie Fink, and Ginger Prager became our officers. The months marched by. November brought our first newspaper; December, the first Chanukah Chagiga which has since become an annual event. How strange it seemed that night to hear the auditorium resound with the reverberations of deep masculine voices. The weeks continued to pass and we reached the great event — finals. Many of us out-of- towners, having had no experience with regents, had no idea of what to expect. We soon found out. In order to give us a longer mid-year vacation, the administra- tion scheduled all the finals in one week. However, this did not turn out to be an act of kindness, for by Friday, after having eight or nine exams, we looked like a school of sleepwalkers — red-eyed, drowsy, full of " no-doze " and dazed. It became obvious that even the faculty couldn ' t bear to see what had become of us, for a new arrangement of finals was drawn up for June. Finals passed as all things do, and we were upper freshmen. Since Stern has no incoming class in Feb- ruary, we had no one to " lord it over, " to whom to sell elevator passes, but still we gloried that we were no longer the lowest of the low. The new term brought a vacancy in our officers so Rhoda Glyn was elected veep, with Effie Fink moving into the presidency. Following in rapid succession came our Shushan Purim Chagiga, our celebration of Israeli Independence Day, a Lag B ' Omer outing, and the appearance of our freshman publication, In Retrospect, edited by Iolet Shapiro. In May, we discussed the club program for the next year. We hoped to form a Debating Club, Chalil Club, Psych-Soc. Club, an Israeli Dance Group, Jewish Ethics Club, and we were open to other suggestions. (Can you picture the publicity department getting out this headline — " Send your Daughter to Stern, the only College with a bigger choice of clubs than classes " ?). Speaking of clubs brings us to the last event of our freshman year, the Dramatic Club presentation of Gil- bert and Sullivan ' s " Trial by Jury. " The operetta was under the able direction of Rabbi Nisson Shulman who, after a send-off of " Anchors Aweigh " and a huge cake topped by a ship, left us for his next tour of duty, that 64 of Chaplain in the U.S. Navy. In addition to all these things, we remember the little happenings; the nights we studied till 3:00 a.m. because we had been talking till 1 :00; the Far Rockaway week- end when we descended en masse; the closeness of 33 girls in the dorm; the heckling to which we subjected Dr. Louis Feldman, our only single instructor, (the heckling that finally ended upon the announcement of his engagement with the class dancing a hora around him while he sat, bewildered, in the center of the circle.) We remember it well. The summer came and went. We returned to find the school enlarged and ourselves sophomores, which, for the information of the reader, means wise fools. Our sophisticated upper-classmen of last year were now juniors. Stern College for Women was progressing. The class of ' 59 had a hand in everything. Effie Fink was secretary of Student Council, Ginger Prager and Dottie Gewirtz were on the Dorm Council. Our elevated class status brought new privileges; two late curfews a month and a 1 .30 curfew Saturday night. This is living? The dorm had grown so much that our Residence Director, Dr. Bell was joined by Mrs. Geiges. This year was also the beginning of the " new dormitory ' ' rumors. These bon mots flew far and wide — the Duane no longer wanted us — we were moving to Long Island — we were buying a hotel in Midtown. All this sounded exciting, but somehow, we had grown attached to the Duane where the view allowed us to appreciate the majestic beauty of the Empire State Building, and where, in the winter, we used the Madison Avenue win- dow sills as refrigerators. (All right — confess! Was that your carton of orange juice that m issed that police- man?) Our Dorm Affair was studded by a well-presented cantata " The Promised Land. " Later that year, Selma Stillman and Rachel Rosenberg wrote our first original Purim play " The Queen and Us, " directed by Rabbi Sol Spiro. Selma, Martelle Berenson, and Iolet Shapiro, in addition to the other girls, shone in their perform- ances on Canary Island. At 253 Lexington Ave., changes were taking place. Morty Green replaced Jason Jacobowitz as our " shab- bos " rabbi while Joe Urivetsky kept his job as baal koreh for our minyon. Joe revealed his other talents later in the year when he accompanied Martelle Beren- son (now Martelle Urivetsky) at the piano at our Soph- omore Affair where she sang. Included among the changes were our new officers who included Martelle, Esther Vitsck, and Ginger Prager. Many amusing episodes occurred while we were sophomores. The elevator operators in school an d in the dorm were so well trained that they wished us " Gut Shabbos " as we passed by on Fridays. And, wasn ' t it this year that our psychology instructor casually men- tioned that she was doing experiments with rats at Y.U.? (no comment.) The year closed with our class taking part in choos- ing the official Stern College class ring — the Yeshiva University emblem and the Stern College building on each side of a deep set blue stone. A happy year for us wise fools. We remember it well. 65 Can it be? Yes, look at us. We are SENIORS. As if to prove this, many girls are student teaching, worrying about the City Teacher ' s Exams, and even more about " gemers " with short little questions like " daber al David Hamelech. " Many of us are taking courses at Yeshiva Graduate School. We had almost forg otten that there is such a phenomenon as co-ed classes. More and more frequently comes the question, " What are you doing, next year? " School did not start until mid-October and our offi- cers began work quickly. Class leaders were Rachael Apher, Martelle Urivetsky, Rena Genauer, and Dottie Gewirtz. Ginger Prager upheld our interests on the Dorm Council, and no one has better coaching than she in interest, both legal and financial. This term brought to us Middle States Evaluation Committee, Dr. Vogel was appointed Dean, Mrs. Isaacs Dean of Women, and thousands of new books appeared in the library. It ' s too bad we won ' t be here long enough to enjoy these wonderful innovations. During the visjt, instructors were mysteriously called out of class, every- one smiled cheerily, and even our librarians were on their best behavior, but this condition didn ' t last very long, for soon Leon and Steve were back at their old tricks, of throwing coats out (the door or window) and shelving every book they could lay their hands on. So what if that was your book — the library needs it. At this time, coincidentally, of course, our newspaper the Observer under the leadership of Evie Weiss, appeared after a long absence. Early in the year, we had a change in " shabbos " administration. Joe Urivetsky became our rabbi as well as baal koreh with Bernard Rothman as co-spiritual leader. As this is being written, many long-awaited moments are swiftly coming upon us. Our Purim play is being written by Rachael Apher and Ina Pekarsky, a com- mittee is searching for a place to hold our Senior Dinner, our graduation date has been chosen, our final semester has begun. So many changes have come about in our four years here. Stern College has grown from 65 to 210 students. The dorm has grown from 33 to over 100 girls. We have a dean. Our girls are in the Public School and Yeshiva systems. Many Stern College girls have already married and made a place for themselves in the Jewish community. Many are soon to follow them. As for the rest of us, we hope to be a credit to Stern and we depend upon those forthcoming students to make Stern College a credit to us. The Class of 1959 will never forget the four years of happiness spent at Stern College; the education and widened outlook; the understanding of what it means to be a Jewess, the life-long friends. No, we will not forget. We will remember it well. The 1957-1958 school year was upon us. Our duly elected class officers were Rachael Apher, Iolet Shapiro, and Mae Kanarek. Martelle Berenson was Student Council treasurer and Evie Weiss, dorm secretary. This was a year counted off by Thursdays. This day every week, we spent in an effort to achieve synthesis. The day began with Dr. Leo Jung and Jewish Ethics. This was immediately followed by Dr. Otto Krash, an ex- ponent of pragmatic philosophy. To close the day, Dr. Joseph Lookstein lectured on American Judaism. Our day of trying to combine these thret different types was continued on Fridays, when Thursdays were " re- chazered " with Rabbi Levine and Dr. Brayer. No one can say we were not getting a divergence of view points. Socially also, it was a full year. The Dorm Affair was a huge success. The Junior- Senior Party brought Rabbi Shlomo Carlbach and his " troubadors " to Stern. At the Chanukah Chagiga, the comedian told jokes in Yiddish and the two separate waves of laughter revealed that not all Stern girls understood Yiddish. Of course, all their male counterparts understood perfectly?? The Purim Chagiga brought another excellent satire by those two masters, Selma Stillman and Rachel Rosenberg. The theme of the presentation was the efforts of a yarmulka factory to " synthesize the synthesis. " The final affair was the Installation at which our own Effie Fink was installed as Student Council president. For us, the most exciting moment came late in April. After being postponed from February to March, to erev Pesach, we received our class rings — and there it was again, that date, 1959. 1958 was a year of firsts for Stern College. Our alma mater was written; a song whose beauty and meaning will be everlasting. June was declared Stern College Month in honor of the first graduation. The dreams of Max Stern, Dr. Belkin, _and other luminaries had finally come true — young Jewish women were sent out into the American community prepared to take their places as leaders. After the tea to honor the graduates, a dinner was held for them together with their families in honor of Mr. Stern — such a small way to thank him for all he has done for us. Graduation Day dawned clear. We were ushers at the first graduation of Stern College. The thrill of seeing our friends rise and turn their tassels can be surpassed only when we do it ourselves. This was our junior year. We remember it well. pathwa y to the stars Rachael Apher 19 Kinney Drive Worcester, Massachusetts Mae Kanarek 2023 Seagirt Blvd. Far Rockaway, New York Sylvia Bluming 2205 E. 21st Street Brooklyn, New York Sally Langner 670 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, New York Bernice Joyce Cohen 2065 Grand Avenue Bronx, New York Sondra Levy 1515 West Avenue Miami Beach, Florida Roberta Daina 134 Suramerall Loop Fort Dix, New Jersey Chaya Heschel Marcus 9014 155th Street Jamaica, New York Susan Bogner Davis 180 Linden Blvd. Brooklyn, New York Elayne Morris 6309 Bartlett Street Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Hannah Edelman 455 E. 93rd Street Brooklyn, New York Ina Pekarsky 946 N. 2nd Street Rockford, Illinois Effie Fink 915 Olive Street Scranton, Pennsylvania Rena Genauer 388 Beach 12th Street Far Rockaway, New York Dorothy Gewirt ' z 948 Lincoln Blvd. Bridgeport, Connecticut Rhoda Glyn 2048 E.
