"Pause, Teachers, and sit you down On some stone bench where green vines grow In an everlasting June of memories. Look you back and smile and know These days are gone forever, Yet haunt the leaves of the ELMS."

Life rushes forward in a mad race with Time That leaves us ever breathless. Day adds on to day so quickly




That each brief moment of joy and sorrow Is covered up before we can fully appreciate, Understand, and enjoy it. Especially College Days-"too soon gone". This year will go down in the Memory Books of some As the year of the Recession. To oUlers it was Coronation year With all that it implies. And others still will think of war·torn Spain and China When 1937 and '38 are called to mind. But for ns, let it be remembered as a College Year. For although we, as teachers, must be constantly aware OJ the ever.changing, ever~resdess World Let ns find ourselves turning back the pages to this coUege year, To hold a brief communion with the past. Memory is an elusilJe thing, and when in retrospect We try to point with pride to prizes won and H quaint deeds" done, Those things will best be recalled to us which we have recorded In the plastic period of our lives. May THE ELMS be the Marker for this Milestone. The Editor


Dr. Hermann Cooper, Assistant Commissioner for Teacher Educa– tion and Certification, we dedicate this volume of the "ELMS". We of State Teachers College at Buffalo extend a hand across thc State, in recognition and apprecia– tion of his part in our new curric– ulum. May his desire for the consummation of the "teaching personality", of which he himself

Gertrude M. Bacon, who contrib– uted more than fifty years of service to our college •.. The loyalty that she displayed cannot be duplicated by her successors-it can only be aspired to! In her passing we have lost a great teacher, one whose life was in her work, and who felt and radiated an unsurpassed devotion to Buffalo State Normal School and to Buffalo State Teachers College.

BAS RELIEFS The four views and also the Ex Libris and title page photographs are results of trick photography which gives well-known subjects a slightly different perspective by produei~g the effect of their having been cast in bas-relief forln either of metal or of stone. The photographer, Debus and Luedeke, has attempted to use a slightly different technique with each so as to fit the subject in the most subtle way.




"I sec from my house by the side of the road, By the side of the highway of life, The lllen who press with ardour of hope, The men who arc fain with· the strife. But I turn not away from their sIlliles nor their tears, Both parts of an infinite plan, Let Ine live in my house by the side of the road, And be a friend t.o man. • .. S. W. Foss


"Lights gleam up in the tower, Chimes ring, ii is the hour That shall for you and me Always live in memory ...."

"I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear, Those ofmechanics, each one sing.. ing his as it should be, blithe and strong •... Singing with ·open mouths their strong melodious songs." . .. Walt Whitman



"Let not young souls be smothered out before They do quaint deeds and fully flaunt their pride ... " .•• Vachel Lindsay

Next, came our novel St. Patrick's Party, the high~light of our Spring activities. And close on its heels followed Moving~Up~Day, to make us ~fahnost .Scniors". But before we of the Class of '39 relinquish our places as the Juniors of State Teachers College, may we, as Juniors, add this thought: The favors of the Junior Prom may have been lost, the precedent of crowning a Prom Queen may be discontinued, the subject matter of our curriculum may never be assimilated, the good times that we have had may a1ready be forgotten, and the harmony of our original song for this year's Interclass Sing may never have been learned, but nevertheless, the sentiment of two lines of that song will always ring true ...•

Activities for the Class of 1939 were inaugurated by our acting as Counsellors to orient and assist the incoming Freshmen. This step made us true upperclassmen, now assistants rather than the assisted. Having reached a coveted position on Moving~Up~Day,-for being Juniors gives us just enough dignity and prominence without the ~tjt will soon be over" feeling that the Seniors carry with them-we began to li.ve up to our status. Our most notable success was the Junior Prom, held at the Consistory on December 17. When we invited the entire College to participate in the election of a J "nior Beauty to be our Prom Queen, we set what we hope will be a precedent.

Social Service came within our realm as we sponsored a college Toy Drive at Christmas time. This new idea, under the Sophomore spell, Aourished and succeeded. Almost every organization on campus has found some Sophomore outstandingly active– Strivill.g Sophomores, here, working for pleasure and recognition. April first- time almost up!-and the Soph-Frosh Hop was opened to the College at a nominal fee per couple. This suggestion of the class president was carried out to introduce to State the first evening dance of this sort_ We've swung through a glorious year, and now, on Moving-Up Day, 1933, we've come out unscathed by the narrow bounds of sophistication. The robes of industry are almost ours. In one brief moment we shall cast our costumes to the Class of '41. BUL il'S Spring, and a warming sun beats down upon us, the Class of 1940_ Let us close the yeal' with thanks, with a sigh, and a smile.

According to college authorities, the school year lasts from the fall month of September to the summer month of June, but, to those members of the college commonly designated as students, the school year's activities are bounded by two days in May, Moving-Up Day and Moving-Up Day_ On this day in May, 1937, we, the Class of 1940, cast aside our Freshman rompers and reached out for the suits of the Sophomores_ Not yet for us were the caps and gowns of the stately Seniors, nor yet the workaday cover-aIls of the industrious Juniors, but rather an attire more youthful than these, though lacking the adolescent touch of the Freshman play suits_ Such was the garb the Class of '39 bequeathed to us_ We donned it eagerly, for it made the gap between May and September somehow smaller_ And with these vestments there came, also, the title "Sophisticated Sophs"_ We eyed it from afar, at Qrst, and then stood back to take survey of those it was to char– acterize- ourselves, the Class of 1940. No, not for us, we cried. Call us, rather, the sporting sophs, spirited, spontaneous, smili~g, spry, or smart! Sparkling with enthusiasm, we administercd the Freshman daze. Singing with great gusto, we followed close on the hccls of the Mighty at Inter-Class Sing, to pcp the College with our Rhythm Cure and fill the second place_ Thanksgiving found us stimulated to the extent of a Turkey Turnout, our first clas. party of the year. United Sophomores, then, we met our classmates on common ground inside the pumpkin walls_

The class of '41 is on the march. Freshmen, yes, but that doesn't faze us in the least. A triumphant path already lies behind us. It all began one fine September weekend. Oh, the joys of Freshman Camp, where every Soph was our best friend. We learned to know these charming Sophomores even better, though, when they gave us a thorough introduction to college life in those jolly days they quaintly referred to as "Hell Week". How sorry we were when it ended! Those Sophomores had so much fun that we just couldn't tell them that the Faculty Re· ception had us more upset than did their humorous antics. The reception's terrors, however, were non-existent, though our hands were ralh~r lame and the end of each line found us being addressed by some unrecognizable bunch of syllables, presumably our appellations. And at its close, we fclt, at last, a part of State. Other aspects of this experience proved similarly useful when our December party was organized. Perhaps it wasn't perfect, but we showed a fine spirit of co-operation and-sociability. Co-operation was a little less noticeable in the Interclass Sing, but we fought our way into fourth place. Vocally, a greater success has been made by the }'reshman girls of the Jnnior Women's Glee Club, in the Spring Concert. Famous Frosh are no novelty this year. The musical organizations, the publications, the Christmas play, and athletics have been supported by the forty-one.ers. Politically we entrusted the administration of our affairs to cQJ:l1petent hands, and now, by a minor miracle, we are about to become the Hdaze-making" class of the College- Sophomores. With these beginnings to our credit, we of the Class of '41 unanimously predict a splendid future for this Class of '41 and with Moving-Up Day no longer a dream but a reality, we find ourselves not merely Freshmen, but a great Freshn:lan class.
