First Mary Tunney with pep and poise
Will have a husband, home, and boys.
We see Mary Ann Specter and Ann Smith with knittin'
While Jane Foy runs the Rockefeller Kitchen —
And Ann Forssell balances the government's headache —
The national budqet — with red ink and red tape.
Thru the years Betty Rentja holds the Russians in place
With potent chem mixtures which settle each case.
Bibbs Gallaqher is heading a vast office force,
Alice Redman forwards biology by dissecting the horse.
Marge Nachman's a prosperous matron instead;
School principal, mother, and garden-club head.
Rita Haraczy's in Bolivia reshaping their speech;
Where Forrestine Parson has student nurses to teach.
While back in America, our first woman president
Is now Mary Kalkhof, an old Villa resident.
Jean Marsh is known as "59's Leading Mother"
And Marcella Munch is publicity head for the show "Wed Another.'
Mary T.ou Natale does the Continent each year —
She travels and lectures at "5 bucks a year."
Alicia Berrios has a quiet domestic life
And so Gini Brown, now a New Yorker's wife.
Peg Gloekler has advanced a great social change
She's promoting a kitchen with men "home on the range.
Marrijane Neely is a famous prose writer,
While Anne Mizner's piano makes concerts much brighter.
Marie Detzel runs a charity ward;
Evelyn Webster advises the aged and bored.
Dorothy Morris has long sought her fame on the stage.
Her career will someday be "Broadway's rage."
Jean Muller is prefect of an exclusive girls' school;
Screen star A. T. Boudon swims a Hollywood pool.
Phyllis Yaple has taken a chemistry chair
At Johns Hopkins U., and she's settled down there.
While Lenore Abramoski types foreign papers for shipment
And Ellen Conwell designs laboratory equipment.
Fashions for the kitchen, long skirts and short aprons.
Are modeled by LaRue Smith to wealthy, young matrons.

This is the first year the students have attempted to pubhsh a yearbook for the entire college. The staff
th:s year is hampered by no tradition which must be honored and by no precsdent which must be followed.
This book was established not only for the purpose of giving the student body an account of life at Villa Maria
but also to fix a goal and break a path for future efforts along the same line.
