TABLE OF CONTENTS
This is an auspicious occasion for the Class of
1957. To you goes the honor of being the first
class to be graduated from the new State Teachers
College at Westfield. With this honor goes the
responsibility to equal and to strive to exceed the
successes of those who went before you.
In this present era, the challenges which a
teacher must meet in her professional life are
many and varied. I am sure you will live up to the
grand traditions of your college in meeting them.
I wish you God-speed in your every undertaking.

In dedicating this, our Tekoa, to DR.
BARBARA CORRIDAN, we, the Class of
1957, realize how inadequately it expresses
our appreciation for all that she has done
for us during our four years at Westfield.
Her help to us in our undertakings both in
the classroom and on the campus will be
gratefully remembered by all.
At the foothills of the Berkshires,
Reared against the sky;
Stands our Alma Mater,
Mount Tekoa tow'ring nigh!

"A bit of nonsense now and then is relished by the wisesf men."
Digger's "liabilities" as a schoolboy turned out to
be assets in training, and the "terror" of the training
school proved himself to be a capable teacher.
Combining the responsibilities of a family with
those of a student, Digger never lost his sense of humor.
His industriousness and practical mind point to a
promising future in teaching.

social activities. A nonchalant air masks a serious
individual who loves discussions whether they be in the
"Rec Room" or in the classroom.

envied. Conscientiousness and poise, together with
patience and versatility, should insure success in teach-

Lydia has never hesitated to lend a helping hand
to class projects. Always ready with a smile or that
infectious laugh, she has been a source of cheer on

carry on the good work as she steps forward into the
world of teaching.

When we entered Westfleld State Teachers' College as the first freshmen to attend
classes on the new, spacious campus, the school seemed so unfamiliar.
Gradually, however, we became accustomed to the college routine, and the
members of the Class of 1960 began to feel at home.

to get acquainted. Those elected were Charles Smith, President; Patricia McGrath,
Vice-President; Barbara Ann Brandoli, Secretary; Judy Tyler, Treasurer; Edward
Trzcienski, Publicity Chairman; Judy McCarthy, Historian; and Student Representatives,

Members of the dormitory council are elected by
residents of the dormitory. Dorm Council, with its
advisers, attempts to regulate the dormitory by acting
as a liaison between residents and administration.
This year the dorm council organized a Freshmen
Welcome Party the first day the freshmen entered.
Dormitory Council also takes charge of the first
dance of the social year. This year, "Moonglow"
was held successfully in the dormitory.
Our Christmas Party, organized by the Sophomore

Season. In the same spirit, the annual picnic
terminated the year on a gay note.

This year, the club adviser, Father John
O'Neill, gave interesting and enlightening

ployed in our daily lives. Members also
had the pleasure of listening to speakers
who came from other colleges, mission-
aries, and local educators.

W. A. A. seeks to promote sportsmanship,
recreation and friendliness to all of its
members. It aims in developing physical
efficiency and in establishing a permanent
interest in physical recreation. W. W. A.
sponsored a program of "a team for every
girl and every girl on a team." Included in
its activities were baseball, basketball, volley-
ball, bicycling and minor sports. In addition
to the sports program, W. W. A. sponsored
several special activities. At the Christmas
Banquet it was responsible for the host group
and also planned the May Day Festival jointly

under the guidance of Prof. Hagan, the club's
enrollment was a record-breaking 150 members.
The activities of the association include inter-
class basketball, volleyball, softball, and touch
football. Club members also work hand in
hand with our varsity basketball and baseball
teams by taking care of the necessary arrange-
ments before each game.
In addition to the athletic program, M. A. A.
sponsored the fourth annual May Day Supper,
variety show and dance. An assembly program
was presented in the fall, and a Pan American

In 1957, WESTEK was faced
with the problem of moving
onto a new campus and
meeting the demands of an
expanded enrollment. Pro-
fessor Wayne M. Holmes was
appointed Faculty Adviser
and Richard H. Guertin was
selected Editor. The new
college surroundings were re-
flected in WESTEK as many
changes had to be made in
the style of publication to
capture the modern trend in
The banner head was made smaller and
more streamlined. More photographs and
mats were used. Articles on music,
movies, books, fashions, and club activi-
ties became more extensive. More em-
phasis was given to Student Government
activities. Greater space was devoted
to our expanding athletic program.
WESTEK owes much of its progress to
the class of 1957. The spaces vacated
by such staff members as Veronica Koziol,
Janet Willard, Jean Broderick, Eleanor
Paradysz, Marilyn Keane, and Esther
Didomenicantonio will be very noticeable.

of the Air National Guard, trips to Stanley Park and the Old Colony Envelope Company,
and hobby groups in photography and chemistry were undertaken. The latter groups
worked independently under the sponsorship of Mr. Taylor and Dr. Genua for several
weeks and then presented programs for the whole club. Officers for 1956-57 were:

A worthy cause with success-
One of the newest clubs on campus is the Veterans
Club. This club will be a part of the extra-curricular
activity program on the campus until that time when
the number of veterans reaches a small minority of
the total male enrollment. At present, the club
membership is seventy-five, or about fifty per cent of
the total male population of the college.
Several successful projects were undertaken by
the club. They included 1) Hungarian Clothing Drive,
2) Tag Day for Hungarian Relief, 3) Collection of
magazines for Veteran's Hospitals in this area, 4)

Student counselors for freshmen are selected from the sophomore class
and consist of both men and women. To be successful, a student counselor
must possess certain personal qualities such as maturity, social competence,
physical and emotional fitness, and sensitivity to the attitudes and feelings of
other people. To function effectively, the student counselor must have certain
abilities. First, he must show evidence of scholarship — a counselor should
set an example in scholarship and study habits. In addition, he must be able
to express himself well, and organize his time, ideas, and activities.
All of these qualities of leadership are necessary if the student counselor
is to achieve the following objectives of his position: 1) Give direction,
meaning, and depth to the college experience of the entering student; 2) Serve
as an effective agent in such areas as planning activities, answering questions
about college life and contributing to a sound environment for the development
of the values and attitudes of the first-year student.

The rain could not dampen the spirits of the performers at the last May Day
at the old college. The theme of the pageant was, "Memories of the Past."
Fortunately the sun shone and balmy breezes graced the procession and crowning
of May Day Queen, Shirley Rodgers. Marching in the procession with her were her
maids of honor Paula Nolan and Mary Clune. Maids in waiting were Elaine Childs,
Frances Willard, Carol Naughton and Peggy Clune. Flower girl was Mary Carol
Roberts; Ann Cavanaugh was crown bearer. Pages were Betsey Ramsey and Mildred
Spaulding; the jester, Pat Saletnik. The train bearers were Training School first
graders, Holly Kean and Dianne De Rose.
The dances executed before the court were in keeping with the theme of the
performance. Scotch, Chinese, Indian, Hoop and Scarf Dances brought to mind May
Days of the past. The traditional Maypole dance concluded the program.
It is the hope of the class of '57 that the spirit of future May Days will be as
bright as those of the past.
