Lasell Annual Fund 
Goal Announced 
for 1979-80 



Congratulations Alumnae and 
Friends! As you know, through your 
generosity the Lasell Annual Fund 
1978-79 achieved the highest jgoal 
ever and exceeded it. Special mention 
must be made of the contribution of 
the class of 1921 that led all classes in 
raising $5,480. The class of 1949 had 
the most participants, totaling 71 and 
71% of the class of 1919 contributed, 
achieving the highest class percentage. 

Among the Reunioning classes 
1949 had not only the highest dollar 
total with $3,239, but also the largest 
number of donors (71) and 1919 had 



the greatest percentage of contributors 
(71%). 

The 1978-79 goal was $75,000 and 
19% of the alumnae body donated 
$61,742 with a grand total of 
$79,175. In 1979-80 Lasell's goal is 
$80,000 and 21% participation. If you 
did not give last year your help is 
needed now. College costs have risen 
sharply and only the continued 
generous support of those who care 
will help Lasell maintain the standards 
you remember and expect. Your con- 
tribution to the Annual Fund in any 
amount is essential to excellence.

Lasell Calling: 

Annual Phonathon 
a Major Event 

Approximately 35 volunteers called 
hundreds of alumnae during the 1979 
Annual Phonathon and at two mini- 
phonathons. On Monday, March 31 
and Tuesday, April 1 from 5:30-9:30 
p.m., 1980, the Lasell Phonathon will 
be held at Boston College. Food, 
wine, good company and the chance 
to call friends and classmates across 
the country, while helping Lasell, are 
the ingredients for this annual event. 
Those who joined us last year and the 
year before, are the experts in 1980 
and they say it shouldn't be missed. 
So please, every one in the Boston 
area and elsewhere, join us one of 
those evenings. If you are a Re- 
unioner, come and invite your class- 
mates to join you for Reunion. We 
need 100 volunteers this year. The 
1980 Phonathon is a major Lasell 
event. Please call or write the Alum- 
nae Office (phone: 243-2165 or 2141) 
and join us for an evening that brings 
the Lasell family together. 




Lasell Phonathon, Nanc^/ OWEN '73 



took office at Lasell. Under his direc- 
tion, Harry Adamian, Dean of Admis- 
sions, and his capable staff have made 
a major effort, with the help of the 
alumnae, to increase the visibility of 
the College and make known the 
quality of the Lasell experience. 

Class secretary 

Network 

Re-established 

seven classes 
still need 
assistance 

A search for 64 Class Secretaries to 
help strengthen and renew the ties be- 
tween classmates and their College 
has brought excellent results. As of 
this writing only seven classes lack a 
Class Secretary. They are the classes 
of 1920, '25, '48, '53, '61, '66 
and '68. If you would like to assist 
Lasell in this capacity or wish to sug- 
gest a classmate, please write the 
Alumnae Office. Secretaries pass on 
class news for the Bulletin and help 
the College keep current with alumnae 
addresses. In the Bulletin's Class Notes 
section you will find each Class Secre- 
tary's name and address now appear- 
ing at the head of her class news. 

We are concerned that we may not 
know of individuals who have been 
Class Secretaries for many years. If 
you are one of these and not listed in 
the Notes, please write and inform us. 
To those who volunteered to serve 
their class, a hearty thank you from 
Lasell.

who left from CT. through the Cape Cod Canal to 
Boothbay Harbor, Wiscasset and Portland, ME 
and back to Martha's Vineyard and Newport, RI. 
"It was really great!" says Mercie. "I also enjoyed 
staying with Mary's son in Lyme, CT and the fun 
of going by train to Old Saybrook." Back home, 
Mercie spent the summer overseeing the painters 
redecorating her home.

Helen L. BEEDE has practically recovered from 
her "hip" fall. "My news is that Mrs. Jean Good- 
rich passed away. She taught piano and German 
as 1 remember. She and Harold Schwab, who also 
died recently, were both members of the music 
faculty when the Bragdon practice rooms were 
busy. At one time there were 35 possible piano 
and organ locations. The old scrapbooks show 
programs of numerous recitals— even had a class 
in 'stage deportment' before a program! We en- 
joyed seeing lots of 'old girls' when Pres. Griffin 
came to FL in February. 'We' means Miss Mac,

Ruth SMITH Baker: "I had expected to graduate 
from Lasell and then Wellesley, but my aunt lost 
her husband and grandfather was old and they 
needed me in NM. 1 went there, became a teller 
and enjoyed working there 4 years. Started dating 
the new bachelor pastor at church where I was a 
soloist — and returned to Auburndale to be mar- 
ried. We have had a beautiful life together, he is 
91 and I 79. Unable to have children due to a 
childhood accident, I have had 55 years of beauti- 
ful service as a minister's wife in NM and CO. We 
do everything we ever have done except climb 
mountains. I taught college students in Church 
School. We were in Denver for 8 years, then 
came to Boulder where we enjoy the University. 
We also spent 7 years at Ft. Collins. We spent 10 
years here at Frasier Meadows helping get this 
beautiful Manor started. I taught ceramics and was 
in charge of painting activities. We have enjoyed a 
trip to Europe and Mexico, Alaska and Canada as 
group leaders. Now we stay close to our apart- 
ment and enjoy the Manor residents. 1 am still in 
the choir of our First Methodist Church in Boul- 
der."

"1 rode in a Pace Arrow Motor Home with my 
son Kendall Wesley and wife Peg, to Seattle. We 
had all the accommodations needed," says Ber- 
nicc CUNNINGHAM Smith. They had gourmet 
cooking all the way. "We photographed snow in 
Yellowstone Park Sept. 10th (very beautiful). Ate 
at top of 'Needle' in Seattle & ferried to San

the harbor. A spectacular trip!" 

Helen DUNCAN Devereux took a fantastic trip to 
China by ship from Japan, through the Inland Sea 
to Peking, Great Wall, Forbidden City, Ming 
Tombs, etc.; then to Shanghai, Canton, ending in 
Hong Kong. "Our cruise was delightful. An exten- 
sion to Manila, Singapore, Bali and Bangkok was 
interesting but exhausting! Was never so glad to 
get back to beloved Hawaii!" 

"Minerva DAMON Ludwig '27 had a delightful 
reunion luncheon this summer," reports Betty 
OPPEL Morris, "so if any of you '26s and '27s 
ears were burning one hot day in July, you'll 
know the reason why!" They agreed that neither 
changed much the last half century. "Still have a 
part time job and enjoy my grandchildren & great 
grandson. Best to all of you!" 

Madeleine ROTH White: "We get back to New 
England every summer to see our son and family 
now living in NH. I was disappointed my grand- 
daughter chose Mt. Vernon in Washington in- 
stead of Lasell, but she is doing well and going for 
4 years."
