The first issue of the Tourmaline, Marywood's yearbook, is published. According to the Foreword in this volume, "It is the purpose of 'The Tourmaline' to reflect the larger phases of our privileged life at Marywood. The tourmaline stone has been chosen as their ring setting by the college girls. Like the tourmaline pincetta, which absorbs extraordinary light rays and permits the transmission of ordinary rays, 'The Tourmaline' will show the ordinary course of events in the college years. The stone has well known optical properties, but of its magnaetic powers not so much is known. It attracts when charged in much the same way as amber. In fact, it is the most interesting in its phenomena of all precious gems. We are entrusting to its powers of attraction and to its unique properties, the title of the Marywood Year Book."
