How often have you not heard someone say, "This is our baby," and then listened to
an endless discourse on the talents and tricks, the virtues and caprices of the longfsuffering
youngster? Well, Angela is "our baby," and we've loved and petted her through four
years of high school, and you simply must let us tell you about her. Just look at those big
brown eyes Cshe recognizes everyonej and see her bewitching smile. Yes, she has almost all
her teeth, she never cries, she is happy and smiling all day long. She talks, too, and some'
times uses big wordsfa very precocious youngster. Oh, yes!
speaking of walking-you should see her on the basketball
court. Her feet are never still, for. you see, Angela is on our
team. Since she was "kneefhigh" she tossed real baby toys away
from her. Perhaps that is why she tosses a basketball so handily.
Now, you proud mothers and fathers who boast of your talented
children, show us one who can compare with "our baby"-so
goodfnatured, advanced, and quick. She is our light and our
joy and, when she grows up, the great big world is going to be
just as proud of her as we are. It couldn't be otherwise. Do
not condemn our pride. It is pardonable because it is justihed.

Have you ever entered Room 16 unannounced and heard a sweet voice say, "Why,

-and very often the trial-of our class. But no, Inez isn't a modern Shylockg her mercenary
manner is only donned when duty calls, that is, when class dues are due. She is really a
laughing miss, sparkling, vivacious, pretty, and Cshades of Virgillj she is also coquettish.
How do we know? Ah, me! 't is a dark and dreary secret, and we may not divulge it. Inez
is accomplished in several lines. Hers is the honor of being the
best dancer in the class and she is also known to have certain ""ef'f's':51-
artistic talents, especially drawing. Yes, she draws dogs and
cats, but she aims much higher. We have never been able to I

In every gesture dignity and love."
A tall, slim girl whose golden hair forms an aureola enhancing the sweet beauty of her
countenancefsuch is our Grace. If life were a game of chess, she would surely be the queen.
She moves slowly and gracefully, without worry or trouble, and she sweeps all before her.
Nature endowed her with queenlike beauty and intelligence, but it depended on Grace to
make the most of the latter, and she has not failed. There is an old saying, "Any port in a
storm," but we are grateful to have a safer refuge than that. Grace is our port in every
storm. How many times, when all seems lost, some wily student
cries, "Ask Grace, she knows!" And she always does. Four
years of her companionship have made her very dear to us. She
is everyone's friend and a good playmate, but she knows that
one cannot succeed without study, so she studies-hence sucf
cess, the reward of earnest endeavor. If the world can resist her
charms-but we smile at the mere thought of that! May Grace
reach the peak of her ambitiong and she will, for the heights of
success are waiting for her.

"She was made for happy thoughts,
For playful wit and laughter "
"A busy person is always happy" says the wise old owl, and that is indeed true of
Alice. Her work lasts through the entire day, but it never outlives her happy buoyancy.
Brutus deplored Caesar's ambition but he admired his energy. We gasp at Alice's energy
but we most sincerely laud and admire her ambition. To meet her casually, one would not
dream of the energetic grasping for knowledge that marks her daily course, for she is happy,
lightfhearted, gay and cheerful, never too busy for a friendly word, nor too deeply intent
on work to miss a joke. She has helped to lighten the seemingly
numerous trials of school life, when we were groaning beneath
our burden of work, Alice cheerfully gave us a worthfwhile
exampleAto laugh at trouble and do one's best. After all, sucf
cess without work would be an empty victory, and work with'
out success, a noble defeat. Alice will have neither. She has the
will to work and the power to succeed, so who could or would
deny her? Surely not we to whom she has been the living
exemplar of cheerful perseverance and who predict for her the
happy reward of earnest endeavor.

Irene is endowed with one of those winning smiles and sweet dispositions which gain
friends and succeed in holding them through the many vicissitudes of school life. Her
vivacious character has earned for her a chosen place among our number, and ofttimes
when we are becoming too engrossed in some wearisome task, Irene's enticing and magnetic
joviality attracts us by some pantomime which she seems to have prepared for such occaf
sions. She was not passed by when it came to the distribution of talents, for she is quick

We cannot say too much of Margaret, and we would not say too little, but she
presents to us a most puzzling enigma+how can so much knowledge and dignity be

our ideas of the requisites of dignity and power. She is our 'slittle Corporal," and it takes
but an instant to know that a fund of knowledge, of power, and of commanding ability
justines that most dignified bearing of our diminutive giant-for she is a giant in matters
intellectual. Truly, though nature made her small of stature, it
made her both impressive and expressive. She is our representaf

her splendid arguments it bodes ill for those who oppose her.
Whether she be lawyer or business woman, we herewith issue
warning to the male leaders of either calling to look to their
laurels, for our "little Corporal" has learned to plan her camf
paign well and to train her forces minutely, that is, to bend
every one of her mental and physical powers to its respective
end. Her zeal is inexhaustible and she has yet to meet defeat.

The more one knows, the more one knows one does not know-if you follow us. At
any rate, the more a person knows the less he talks about it. Well, if you've followed us,
Mary must know that she doesn't know a great deal, and if you haven't, it's this: Mary
never talks about what she does know which happens to be a great deal. She says and does
everything so quietly, but so well. Who could help loving one who is so talented, yet
never shows it, except at the right time and in the right place, and is ever ready to give a
helping hand to a less fortunate classmate? We cannot, and we
hope the world is just as appreciative of real value as we have
learned to be. We give to the world a girl with a heart of gold,
and we doubt if the world will find a treasure with which to
cancel its debt to us. We charge you, world, to give her of your

"Men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever."
Had those immortal lines of Tennyson been written of a babbling brook of laughter
rather than of the tiny, laughing stream that flows happily through woodland and meadow,
they could truly be applied to our Edith. She is like a fountain of joy, scattering ripples of
laughter wherever she goes. Her happiness is contagious, for when life seems overshadowed
by the dark clouds of worry attendant upon the cares and trials of our schoolgirl life, the
sunshine that is Edith inevitably pierces through the darkest and heaviest of them and
dispels the gloom. Can you blame us for loving her, even if that
famous giggle does naught to enhance the dignity of the seniors?
Edith is the "Peter Pan" of '28, Though she looks hopefully,
even eagerly to the future, she cannot restrain a sigh and a
rather regretful longing for the dear days that used to be. She
will travel far in life, gaining and holding many friends by the
delightful charm of her sunny, smiling character. She will
reach success, perhaps upon a bubble of laughter, but even that
will reflect the rainbow of happiness that she spreads before all
whom she meets.

'LSO full, so deep, so slow,
Thought seems to come and go
In thy large eyes, imperial Eleanoref'
Through no personal fault, but through some strange play of fate, Eleanor has acquired
the fantastic nickname of "Motza." Being quite typically Irish, the name is very well
suit ed to Eleanor, We think. She is a girl about whom only nice things can be said. Although
she denies it most emphatically, she is the light of the class. When We fail to solve a
problem in algebra, it isrto Eleanor We turn for an explanation, and she makes it clear.
When ethics becomes even worse than usual, it is "Motza" who sheds illumination upon
the subject. Yes, verily, she is a "star that giveth much light."
Nor must we forget to tell you that she is lightfhearted, too.
In fact, who has a greater sense of humor than our illustrious
class president? And who plays a better game of basketball?
For h'Motza" is also athletic and plays guard so guardedly that
no forward wishes to have this guard guard her. She has many
other talents too numerous to mention. We can only say that
because of them Cor is it in spite of them?j she has tripped into
the hearts of one and all of her classmates and, regardless of time
or place, will always remain there. We shall ever remember her
as President Coolidge's only rival during the years of our highf
school career-nineteen twentyfiive, six, seven and the memo'
rable year of nineteen tvventyfeight.

"The same calm, quiet look she had
As if the world held nothing base."
Why is it that when We think of Delia, the words, "Come back to Erin," rise in our
minds? The reason is-Delia. For she is a goodfnatured colleen who denies not her Irish
origin. Of late, Delia has joined the ranks of girl hairgrowers and, strange to say, we have
never once heard her ask for any kind of hair tonic, either. She surely must have perseverf
ance, because for six Whole months she has failed to drop by the Wayside of longflocks
advocates. Delia is eternally bubbling over with merriment. In years to come, her smiling
face will remain stamped indelibly upon our memories for she
has the happy faculty of smiling, come what may. How often
have we not thought what a cheerful old world this would be
could We all do the same. But vvelre not so fortunate as our
"Dele" who reminds us of the song, "Let a Smile Be Your
Umbrella on a Rainy, Rainy Day." Keep it up, Delia, life will
often have its "rainy days," and search where you will you'll
find no better umbrella.

"Thou art lovelier than the roses
In their prime:
Thy voice excels the close
Of sweetest rhyme."
Helen has never been picked on an allfAmerican basketball teamg Paderewski is more
famous than she in the world of musicg Newman was more intellectual and had deeper
knowledge, hence, she is the most humble of creatures, and we love her for it. Who could
resist the charms of a talented girl with a madonnaflike beauty, whose soft dark eyes never
hold a glint of pride or hardness but whose every action bespeaks our ideal-a girl modest
though richly talented, quiet though cheery. Helen's talents made her our vice-president
before we knew the girl, but it is the girl whom we love who
has held the office. She is everyone's friend, for no one could or
would try to resist the friendly, compelling eyes and the plead-

A maiden fast in every branch ofthe game of life. She jumps into our hearts as swiftly

scribe Claire, because her appearance seems to change with her mood-or is it her artistic
temperament? One moment she has bright, shining, laughing eyes and an eager, contagious
manner, another, she is serious and altogether above our un'
Seniorlike frivolities. But always she is a good pal and a better l
sport. We admire her for her gifts, We love her for herself. She
plays the game fair and square, and so well! When we read her
horoscope, We see that happiness and success are allotted her,
and of both she deserves a rich share. Good luck, Claire!

Helen is our wit editor, and she lives up to the name. Her presence is generally made
known by an exclusive "Sella giggle," followed by a general "Senior laugh." When not
delving in histories, she may be found doing French verbs, at which she is an adept. In
addition, she is known as the "Senior Directory," because of her very extensive knowledge
concerning certain people of importance. But these are the least of her good qualities.
During the four years that we have known Helen, she has succeeded in making fast friends
of all of us, and none of us are able to tell just what it is that
has most attracted us to her. With sterling qualities such as she
possesses, we feel sure that she will be as successful in the
future as she has been during the past years.

Life is much too short for worrying about such simple things as exams, essays, and the
like. Perhaps that is why Helen is our most earnest exponent of easy nonchalance. But,
with all her nonchalance, she has endeared herself to us in no uncertain way, as was shown
by the gap made in our stalwart ranks when she was absent from us this year. How joyf
fully we welcomed her back to our numbers, and how well we were rewarded by many a
happy smile or friendly glance from beneath those long, dark lashes which are the envy of
the entire class! Protected by her friendly smile, Helen will
weather the storms of life. She will never lack friends, and
since, for her, true friends mean true success in life, she will l

which is affable and lovable. With qualities such as these in her possession, Marion is

The Rise and Fall of the Senior Republic
IN THREE PARTS
ANCIENT, MEDIAEVAL, AND MODERN
The Rise of the Republic
This period embraces the months from September, 1924, to june, 1925. It was during
this age that our republic came into notice in the high school world. The President whom
we elected to rule our State during the period of its establishment was Miss Irene Dowling.
She proved to be a most able leader in preserving and guiding our infant nation. Our Vice'
President was Miss Helen Oliva who proved herself a most eilicient aid to our respected
President in the performance of her duties and in the execution of our State's laws. The
hnancial problems necessarily involved in the carrying on of matters mundane and pecuniary
were managed most satisfactorily by our esteemed Treasurer, Miss Inez Cavinato. The
Secretary of State, chosen by a higher power under whose protection we still were, was
Miss Grace Christ.
During the Hrst year, although twice defeated, we were twice victorious in warfare
Cbasketball gamesj which we carried on with our older and srronger sister republics. These
two victories enabled us to rise to great prominence among nations which, until then, had
gazed upon us with hostile eyes. At the end of this first period, june, 1925, our banner of
Red and Tan floated proudly side by side with our school banner of Blue and White, over
the greatlyfstrengthened republic which boasted of twenty-five members.
We Attain a Place in the Sun
The second period of our republic, our most prosperous period, consisted of the
months between September, 1925, and june, 1927. The term of our first President having
expired, we elected Miss Eleanor Hennessy to fill her place and to guide us in the weighty
matters of government. The exercise of much diplomacy, both at home and abroad, was
essential at this important period of our scholastic history, hence, we felt that we could
not do better than to refelect to their respective offices the VicefPresident, Treasurer, and
Secretary of the preceding year.
This period embraces two phases through which the republic passed-the Sophomore
and junior. During this time, our State rose steadily in prominence, asserting itself more
and more, and truly Ending for itself "a place in the sun." However, despite our increased
prosperity in other ways, june, 1927, found us with but eighteen members with whom to
engage in battle against the younger States which were now springing up around us and
which boasted of greater numbers as well as constantly increasing strength and power.

Its Perfection, Decline, and Fall
During this period, from September, 1927, to June, 1928, our State reached the height
of its perfection. We shook ourselves free from the protection of any other State and stood
alone, "the mightiest of the mighty." However, the summit of our power having been
reached, there appeared a dark cloud gathering on our hitherto bright horizon. Those
States which, until now, we had deemed weak and incapable of selffsupport and dependent
on us for their very existence, had grown weary of our rule and, silently and stealthily,
they were beginning to rebel. We felt a crisis approaching and rejoiced that we had early
realized the need of strong and capable hands to guide our Ship of State. Who could be
more reliable than those who for the past years had been our leaders and who had helped
us safely through all storm and strife? At the beginning of the Senior period of our State's
existence, we had refelected these oflicers once again-our gentle, yet masterful President
and her three cabinet members, adding, this year, Miss Irene Dowling as Athletic Captain,
to be our leader in the warfare we knew to be inevitable. However, it may be seen that the
younger nations have been successful in many ways, and as we, when young, had risen to
power and prominence, so they, too, had become mighty. Weakened by the struggle of
four hard, yet profitable years, during which we had attacked and successfully conquered
many difficult "subjects," and our numbers reduced to seventeen, we must needs give way
to younger generations.
However, we fall not in shame or disgrace, but sink slowly and gently into insigniif
cance in a manner resembling that of the setting ofthe sun-in a blaze of glory, to rise again
and shine forth brilliantly upon some other world.

, Class Prophecy
Nine hundred ninetyfnine sheep had already jumped over the fence, and as yet Mr.
Sandman had not paid me his accustomed nocturnal visit. I simply could not sleep. But
who could? It was the night before Commencement, and on the next day we would leave
our Alma Mater and go forth into the Wide, wide world to seek our fortunes. What paths
lay ahead of us? My thoughts were doing little jigs all over my brain.
Suddenly I saw a tiny, white light. Was it a silvery moonbeam stealing in to offer
me sympathy and consolation? No, for the light grew steadily brighter and, as I watched,
I heard a musical voice saying, "Good evening, Margaret. Perhaps I can help to solve the
problems which are now troubling you." I looked in the direction from which the voice
came, and there I saw the queerest little man swinging on the foot of my bed. He was clad
in black cap and gown and carried a diploma in his hand. But in place of a tassel hanging
from his cap there hung a tiny golden star which gave the light I had first seen. On his feet
were long shoes with the toes curling up.
When I had somewhat recovered from my surprise, I answered, "Good evening."
Immediately I began to feel that something most unusual was about to happen, and I was
delighted with the prospect.
With an encouraging smile, my quaint friend invited me to go along with him,
promising to show me something really interesting. In a jiffy I had donned kimona and
slippers and was walking at the side of my little guide. He really wasn't so very much
smaller than Ig for if he were, there would be no little man to invite me out.
We went down the long corridor and then up the front stairs, up, up. It was dark and
forbicldingflooking, and ordinarily it would have sent queer little shivers up and down my
spine. Tonight, however, I didn't notice the darkness because the little star shed a soft,
bright beam of light ahead. Before I knew it I was up in the dome. All around us were
the tiny windows at which I had often gazed from the campus far below. Looking at my guide
I saw that he was opening one of these little windows, and presently the vast expanse
of the heavens with its myriad stars was spread out before us. The little man now handed
me his diploma and told me to look through it at the stars, adding that perhaps I would see
enough to answer some of the many questions that were teasing me.
I took the diploma, which had somehow lengthened and taken on the appearance of
a telescope, and putting it to my eyes I gazed out at the starry vault above me. How
different everything was! The stars were not mere golden lamps, but on each moving
objects were visible.
As I gazed in wonder, the evening mail plane soared southward just above the dome.
In its wake was a cloud of smoke which soon drifted into letters forming the words, "The
Future." I then noticed seventeen particularly bright stars grouped in a circle around the
"Man in the Moon" who was smiling so broadly that his face seemed all mouth, and that
was of crescent shape. -
The Hrst star to claim my attention presented a scene of great excitement. Within it
I saw a great public hall filled with women who were apparently discussing some grave
question. In the chairwoman's place sat someone whom I seemed to recognize. She was
tall, neatly and plainly dressed, and Wore an expression of strong determination. Ah yes,

no wonder she looked familiar! It was none other than our dear Class President, Eleanor
Hennessy, well known for her executive ability.
The star next to hers seemed very quiet. This was soon accounted for, however, for
there I saw Helen Oliva, Latin book in hand, at a desk in the front of a large classroom.
I realized that Helen's dream was to come true and that she was to be a Latin teacher.
The next little scene was in direct contrast to the previous one. This star was
spinning violently on one point and seemed enveloped in a cloud of smoke. Finally, it came
to rest, and through the drifting smoke I beheld Alice Decker. Around her lay a confusion
of bottles, beakers, test tubes, flasks, and glasses of various sorts and sizes. In her hands were
the tags of two bottles which by this time were in bottle heaven. The tags read "Tetranif
trotoluene" and "Tetranitroaniline." I realized that she had dared to attempt their
reaction to heat, and the wonder was that anything was left of Alice. I understood that
she was to be a famous chemist, that her schoolfday desire was to be fulhlled.
I looked eagerly at the neighboring star. It presented an oflice scene. There was a
desk with a card on which I read, "Miss Mary Farrell, Private Secretary." So my dearest
friend, through her quiet, diligent manner and attractive personality was to win fame in
the business world.
My! what a hubbub! Was it a battle? Sticks were being knocked about in all direc'
tions. Of course! Why had I failed to recognize it at once? It was a game of hockey. And
who was associated with hockey? No one but Loretta Trainor, to be sure. There she was
in her sport outfit, surrounded by her victorious team. Victorious as usual! Who could
defeat Letty at that game? Was it to be her vocation or her avocation? The star did not
answer me in words, but I surmised that physical culture was to claim her in its rank of
teachers, though she had always told us that she aspired to be an ordinary "schoolfma'am."
The next star held a large, wellffurnished library stacked with books. There at a desk
by a sunny window sat a young lady buried in a book and oblivious to all around her fit
seemed to be just past noon and patrons of the library apparently had not yet begun to
appearj. There was something strangely familiar in that slender figure at the desk. Ah,
yes, of course! How could I be so stupid. It was none other than May Peley, happy and
contented, for she was now a librarian as she had always wished to be.
Another beautiful building! What was it? Oh, the sign read, "Mademoiselle Grace
Christ's Fashionable School for Girls." Focusing my telescopefdiploma, I peeked in at a
large window. There stood dear Grace, surrounded by a group of darling children. Who
was better Btted to teach them, not only lessons of bookfknowledge but also of grace, of
kindness, and of love?
Again a hall! But oh, it looked familiar! It was our own H. A. gym. Hither and
thither in the midst of an exciting basketball game ran Irene Dowling, referee. I knew that
Irene had returned to her Alma Mater as gym teacher.
But there wasn't any star in the next place. Looking about I saw it balanced daintily
on the tip of the crescent moon. And there beneath it was Inez Cavinato, poised in the
curve of the moon, paintbrush in one hand and pallette in the other, working at her
masterpiece. She paused and drew back to scan her work. As pretty as the picture on her
canvas she looked, with her head tilted sideways and one slender arm swinging gracefully
down in the silvery light.
Right beside her sat Edith Haas, our own "Dedee," who between little spasms of
delight was deftly charcoaling Inez's profile on her paper. So she, too, was to follow an

In the next star I beheld a Texas ranch which seemed to stretch for miles on every
side. Well in the foreground I saw a large and comfortable house with dainty flowerbeds
and neat graveled walks all about it. On the long, shady veranda, with a book lying open
beside her, hands folded idly and a farfaway, dreamy expression in her large brown eyes,
sat our own Angela, the "baby" of our class. Sweet and peaceful as ever she looked, and
happy, too, though the dreamy eyes held a look of longing. She was thinking of dear H. A.
Again a large room! This one, though, was all white and still. Rows of beds lined
the walls. As I looked, a nurse quietly and gently turned away from one of the beds. It
was Marion Zimmerman! Lucky the patient who had her to soothe his pain-our gentle,
I next saw two bright, happyflooking stars close together. Little white cottages with
merry children romping on the trim lawns caught my eye. Under a shady oak beside one of
the cottages sat Helen Sella and Delia Keating, both looking serenely happy.
Another office! This time I saw Helen Seuferling working rapidly. Helen had decided
to conquer the business world, and she would do so or no one ever would.
Listen! Sweet strains of music are filling the air. I glance quickly at the next star and
therein is unfolded before my eager gaze a large and wellffilled music hall. On the stage
stands a slight and graceful figure. Surely I have seen those dark, soulful eyes before. There
is a moment's breathless pause and then a world of melody flows from those parted lips.
Yes, it is Claire-our Claire of H. A. days. Glancing at the bulletin which is displayed
near the stage I see that she has become a worldffamed prima donna, the most successful
contralto singer the world has ever known as well as a pianist of great repute. Well, we all
foretold that, when she was in our midst, so my surprise is not so great, after all.
But where was my own star? A tiny, friendly star suddenly twirled round and seemed
to wink, "Here I am. just come and catch me." Delighted with my study of the stars of
Holy Angels' Class of '28, yet disappointed at not seeing the center of my own particular
Ztar, I turned to hand my telescope to the little man who all this while had stood quietly
eside me. '
After a friendly chat of a few moments we walked over to where a bright moonbeam
was streaming through one of the windows. At his bidding I sat down upon it and-
alas for Senior dignity !-went sliding right down to my own little bed. Just as I reached
it I heard a scream, and awoke to ind myself under the bed with my roommate looking for

In using them with no intent to kill.

And Helen Seuferling, her nonchalant air,
They give to those who have most care.

The things which have made our school life dearg
And hope that, in time to come, each one
May find as much joy here as we have done.

As the golden sun is sinking
Below the distant hills,
I sit here musing, dreaming,
And my heart with sorrow Ells.
For ere its last beam fades away
In the dim and mellow sky,
We all must bravely, sadly, say
The parting word, "Goodfbye."
Kind teachers and fond parents dear,
Our gratitude is yours,
For all the love and all the care
That endlessly endures.
May heaven's angels smile on you,
Through the years that swiftly fly
And may you often think of those
Who now must say "Goodfbye."
O dear old school, we'll ne'er forget
The happy hours spent hereg
Their mem'ry will but sweeter grow
Throughout each coming year.
We cannot linger, classmates,
Though parting means a sigh,
So now we'll say, with smiling face,
Not "Farewell," but "Goodfbye."

i Sophomore Counterparts of Shakespearian
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women players."
Thus said the learned Shakespeare. Upholding this theory, also the fact that he
possessed such a superb knowledge of human nature that his characters are so true to life
that their duplicates may be found among groups in any century, the Sophomores, playing
an important role on life's stage, have found counterparts of his most famous characters
Helen Grady, our stately Class President, portrays Portia from "The Merchant of
Venice." Does she not harmoniously blend knowledge with so much courage and wit as
to amount almost to manliness, and yet retain her femininity? ,
Marie Sardi, our VicefPresident, gay and witty, represents none other than Princess
Katharine from "Henry V."
Helene Kleiser, our competent Secretary, is unequaled in her superior intelligence.
Her wisdom, being seated rather in the heart than in the head, springs more from nature
than from reflection. It comes forth so freely and spontaneously that she herself takes no
thought of it. Who else but the lovely Imogen, of Shakespeare's famous L'Cymbeline,"
comes to our mind when thinking of our ideal companion?
Margaret Sliaffrey, our Treasurer, sweet and pure as a lily, is loved by all who meet
her. Her presence reminds us of Juliet, from "Romeo and Juliet."
Grace Orclzanian, bubbling with fun, yet serious at times, represents Julia from "Two
Gentlemen of Verona."
Elsie Ferrante is as petite and fanciful as one of the "little folk." How can it be
proven that Shakespeare would not have selected her for Titania in his play, "A Mid'
summer Night's Dream?"
Virginia Filon, so gentle, meek, and kind, calls to our mind Desdemona from 'LOthello."

Holy Angels Welcomes
Venerable Sister Superior M. Corona
Upon our return to school last September, we were grieved to hear that Venerable
Sister Mary Jerome who, for six years, had been Superior at Holy Angels, had been called
away. It was not long, however, before we found that, though we had lost one friend, we
had been given another-one who would do her utmost for our happiness.
Venerable Sister Corona, who came to fill the place left vacant by Sister jerome's
removal to Baltimore, made us feel that our interests were hers by visiting us on the opening
day of school. That little act alone made us feel "at home" with her, and before very long,
Sister had endeared herself to each of usg and we experienced a sense of gratitude that we
had been given a kind mother, a constant friend, and a gentle advisor. The time already
spent here has proven to be one of work and endeavor for others-a constant seeking to
give to each one that which would make her happy. Her warm sympathy and deep interest
in our every enterprise nurtured the love so early implanted in our hearts.
We regret most sincerely that we have had but one brief year of her friendship and
guidance, but we know that the affection which she so spontaneously inspired in us has not,
like the ivy of Jonas, sprung up over night but to wither and die the next day under the
seering rays of ingratitude and forgetfulness. We envy those who follow us and who are
to continue for some time under her guidance. To them we bequeath a true love, a lasting
respect, and a warm friendship for our Venerable Sister Superior, to whom we bid farewell
with much regret. But across the far miles that may separate. us we shall often come in
spirit, and from the depths of our hearts we shall ever breathe a fervent "God bless you,
always, dear Sister Corona."

To Venerable Sister Mary Theophista
"For whatsoever thou shalt do
Unto the least of men,
Shall, multiplied an hundredfold,
Be given to thee again."
These words, serene, prophetic,
Were uttered by the Lord,
The One Whom, all your whole life through,
Alone you have adored.
The One before Whom, on that day
Long past, you humbly kneltg
For Whom within your noble heart,
Sweet love and homage felt. '
To Him you freely gave your life,
With all its joys, its woes,
And of the noble deeds since done,
'T is He alone Who knows.
'T is many years since on yourself
His heavy Cross you tookg
And many were the trials you
For His sweet sake did brook.
You've struggled bravely, nobly,
Without a pause or stop,
Unless to aid another soul
Who longed to reach the top.
And every soul you've aided
Will but prove to be a gem
In your bright crown of gloryg
In your sparkling diadem.
And every deed you have performed-
Each was a noble one-
Has added yet another stone,
More brilliant than the sun.
For what you've done upon this earth
Has won respect and love,
But how can our poor love compare
With that of Christ above?
One way alone to us is known
Our gratitude to show,
We pray dear Jesus e'er on you
His choicest gifts bestow.

r Golden jubilee of
Venerable Sister Mary Theophista, S.S.N.D.
"They who instruct others unto justice shall shine as stars for all eternity."
It is our happy privilege to have our graduation from Holy Angels coincide with the
Golden jubilee of its beloved Directress-Venerable Sister Mary Theophista. More than
fifty years have sped by since first she heard the Voice of God calling her to lay aside the
things of this world and take up His holy Cross in the cloistered sanctuary of the religious
life. Willingly she consented, knowing that the sacrifice made for His dear sake would
bring ample recompense for the renunciation of parents, relatives, and friends, and of all the
prized and dearlyfloved possessions of her former life. However, willing though she was,
it was not without difficulties that she followed the call, for the breaking of home ties is
never easy, but the knowledge of the "reward, exceeding great," stored away for her in
eternity, gave her strength and courage to hearken to the Voice of God.
This year marks the Golden Jubilee of her Religious Profession. As she looks back
over the fifty years that have passed since the day on which she irrevocably pledged herself
as the Spouse of Christ, and especially over the fortyffour years spent here in our loved
school, where she has done so much to continue the splendid work begun by Venerable
Sister Nonna, she can but feel that her great sacrifice has not been in vain, for in her
capable hands and under her wise management the Institute of Holy Angels has grown
and flourished. In retrospect, she will see the many classes of students that have been
graduated and gone forth from the school with its principles instilled deep in their minds
and with love for the school and its Directress deep in their hearts. If she looks about her,
at present, she will see the many students who are still under her care and guidance, all of
whom respect and love her. And considering all this, her Jubilee will become a time of
gladness and of rejoicing that she has faithfully and worthily fulilled the Will of God.
It has not all been an easy task, of course. As Thomas a Kempis says: "It is no small
thing to dwell in a religious community or congregation, and to live there without com'
plaint and therein to remain faithful even unto death." There were many hardships to be
borne, many difficulties to be overcome. It was a task for a strong character who would not
allow herself to be easily overwhelmed by the difficulties confronting her. For such a task,
no one was better qualified than Sister Theophista. The very worst of the difficulties were
overcomeg the most severe hardships were borne with the humble heart of one who knew
that "We must through much tribulation enter the Kingdom of God."
But all these difficulties and hardships pale into insignificance when compared with
the success in which all her efforts have culminated. The Venerable Foundress of the
school, who is still deeply interested in it despite her four score years and seven, must,
indeed, feel that its management is in the hands of one who is most worthy of the work.
For it was through Sister Theophista's untiring zeal and energy that one of her dearest

dreams was realized, although she had thought, perhaps, that it was not to be granted her
to see the fulfillment of it. It is now several years since the new extension to the main
academic building of Holy Angels has been completed. Its erection and its present use'
fulness in the Held of education are, in large part, due to the efforts of Sister Theophista.
However, what must be more gratifying to her than all the success which has crowned
her efforts is the lasting love and gratitude which she has inspired in all those who have
known her. There is no one who can more readily attest to her virtues than the pupils at
present surrounding her. There is not one of us who has not been personally aided and
benefited by her unselfish interest and devotion. During all the years that we have known
her she has acted as a guardian in the place of our parents, wisely and lovingly directing all
those who have been placed under her care. To her unselfish devotion we owe a debt of
gratitude that can never be paid in any material way.
So, in celebrating her Golden jubilee, Sister Theophista may fittingly rejoice in conf
templating the success of her efforts, in the gratitude and love of those surrounding her, in
the knowledge that she has faithfully fulhlled the Will of God, and above all, in the thought
of the reward that is awaiting her in Heaven, for truly, "They who instruct others unto
justice shall shine as stars for all eternity."

Where the buttercup is blooming,
Where the modest violets play,
Where the meadow lark is singing,
There, dear God has blessed the day.
Where the perfumed roses nestle,
Where the proud white lilies sway,
Where the busy bee goes winging,
There, dear God has blessed the day.
When to heaven our hearts are lifted,
And we humbly kneel to pray,
When to Him we give all honor,

What People Never See
Some people look for evil,
And some folks look for goodg
But most poor mortals fail to see
The things they really should.
They don't see hearts that proudly beat
'Neath many a tattered gowng
They don't see love that's hid behind
A stern, forbidding frown.
They don't see all the yearning 'neath
An urchin's wistful stareg
The longing of his bursting heart
For someone who will care.
They envy him who wears a crown,
But, oh! do they not see,
Though he wear a pearly diadem,
How weary he may be?
They can't see pain that they have caused
By some word, harsh and heedless.
A gentle word will anger soothe
And save much pain that's needless.
A jester's words have meaning deep,
His thoughts are often bestg
Ah! fools are we, who cannot see
The truth beneath a jest!
Folks don't see God's great Providence,
And yet, 't is all aroundg
They don't see love and beauty, that
In every plant are found.
And, lastly, they see not themselves.
Ah! 't would from vain thoughts free us,
If God would grant that we might see
Ourselves as others see us.

Let us hail it as that which has served the cause of human freedom and world democf
racy as no other doctrine has ever done-our Constitution! By its adoption, our country
passed, without civil revolution or military dictatorship, from probable anarchy to order,
from weakness to strength, from death to life. It far surpasses the landmarks of democracy
in all other countries, although they were laid years before it.
As first established, the Constitution was intended to be the strong, wellflaid foundaf
tion upon which future generations were to build an imposing and noble edifice, the
Temple of Liberty and Justice.
The comparatively small assembly that met to enter upon that stupendous task of
drawing up the Constitution consisted of men of great political wisdom and foresight.
It was not "an assembly of demifgodsfas Jefferson would make it, it did not embody most
of the wisdom and resourcefulness in the land-it was a gathering of diverse types-it
consisted of men of different abilities, different temperamentsg and widely different ex'
periences, and therein lay its strength.
Was it not said at that time that the "genius of republican liberty seems to demand
that all power should be derived from the people?" This, then, was the task that faced
them-to establish a Constitution that would hold the interests of its own people as para'
mount, to establish a workable document that would meet the emergency that demanded
support at once, and one that could be adapted to the needs of the futureg briefly, one for
all the people for all the time.
The Constitution, as it left the hands of its framers, was not entirely satisfactoryg
therefore it contained a provision by which any unforeseen future condition might be
remedied-the provision for its own amendment to meet the demands and needs of any age.
The Constitution is without precedent in the manner in which it has withstood the
ravages of time and developed and enlarged itself in many ways, the foremost being by
laws, by judicial interpretations, by usage, and principally by its amendments.
People have maintained of late that our government is a "government of laws and
not of men." Yet, the Constitution, as it was drawn up, stands for government by the
people. It is the people themselves, according to its provisions, who make the laws by
which they themselves are to be governed. Is it, then, the fault of these foundation'
builders that the succeeding generations, restless and impatient instead of steadfast and
true, as their forefathers had been, have added hastily, thoughtlessly, and uncertainly to
their most noble beginnings?
"As the leaders of the State are, so will be the State itself." If the laws passed and
the amendments of recent years added to the Constitution have not met the expectations
or fulfilled the desires of the people, is it not the fault of the people themselves who have
elected the leaders and thus indirectly made the laws?
The Constitution of the United States ranks above every other written Constitution
for its simplicity, brevity, and precision of language. It is by this very simplicity of lan'
guage that we are made to understand that it stands for freedom. Freedom is its one great
cry. Freedom of life and liberty, freedom in the pursuit of happiness, freedom of religion!
Do we not consider ourselves as prudent as those able and conscientious men of our country
as " 3 gli. 6 as
if v sfi fair, s- 29
A ' 'M in-93
! . llll n I ,C-Y i. .i L ge, fi ' a xxmxxx kxxx aww , x vu
who exercised such wisdom and foresight in the framing of the Constitution? Why, then,
do we not use that prudence in amending that precious document and in maintaining the
the government it has so securely established?
Why do we, in our ignorance, persist in choosing for ourselves biased leaders, and
allow them even to seek to instill into our minds their own perverted ideas-ideas that
will prove to be only a menace to that freedom which we are now permitted to enjoy?
Prudence tells us that we have but ourselves to blame.
lt has been said that the Constitution "has changed in the spirit with which men
regard it, and therefore in its own spirit." Change, we know, is inevitable, if it is to adapt
itself to the conditions of a new age, yet, are we warranted in allowing it to change for
the worse? Is it not, rather, our duty to safeguard and to protect the sacred trust handed
down to us?
Franklin says: "Our Constitution is in actual operation, everything appears to
promise it will last, but in this world, nothing is certain but death and taxes." Although
not overfproud, the framers built the Constitution better than they knew. True to ap'
pearances, it has lasted these long years. Are we now to allow it to decay rather than
further insure its safety?
As at the entrance to our glorious harbor stands forever the symbol of our liberty,
so at the very threshold of our own American Government stands the Constitution-the
true fulfillment of that symbol.
Let us never lose faith in or love for the Constitution of our Fathers. Let it not be
merely written with ink on parchment, but, with flaming letters let it be engraven deep
in our hearts. Then, if the thoughtlesslyfadded work of present generations totters and
falls, the foundation will yet stand, it will not fail, but will remain despite the present inf
difference of its citizens and the restless spirit of an impatient age, facing the unknown
future, a noble ruin of the Temple of Liberty and Justice.

Glory, at What Price?
Seated in a luxurious apartment in the beautiful City of Washington were two noted
scientists-a man and a woman. They were discussing the importance of a discovery the
latter had just made.
"A success! Why, my dear Miss Merton, this will bring the whole scientific world
to your feet. For centuries, scientists have endeavored to produce this element in the
laboratory and have failed."
"But, I don't+"
Their conversation was cut short by the entrance of several newspaper reporters who
had come to learn from her own lips the story of Miss Merton's career. She consented,
much to their satisfaction. The next morning millions of newspaper readers scanned the
story which had been elaborated by the reporters, but which Miss Merton had told in
the following simple words:
"From the time I entered high school my greatest ambition was to be a chemist and,
eventually, a great scientist. Accordingly, after my graduation, I pursued the study and
in time received my degree in science. All sorts of offers came to me, and I finally decided
to accept a government position in Washington. Since then I have worked and experif
mented almost incessantly to accomplish this result, and at last I have succeeded-and
far beyond my highest expectations."
This was the story of her scientific career,but she did not tell what had been sacrificed
to gain this success. Her faith, her most cherished possession in girlhood days, had long
since been lost, due to the influence of her worldly companions and neglect of the advice
given her while in school.

The scene changes to an island far away. On a rustic bench in the coolest spot in the
garden sat a blackfrobed nun, resting after her day's work in the blazing sun. Her thoughts
flew back to the scenes of her girlhood when she was about to graduate from high school.
Her eyes grew misty with memories, and she pictured herself at school once more, listening
to the advice of her teacher.
"But I am sure I have no vocation. I wasn't made for that life. It is too hard."
"You cannot be certain now, child. Wait and pray, or you will regret it later."
The months flew by and Commencement Day came-so joyful, yet so sad! There
was Mass in the morning and the graduation exercises in the afternoon-so beautiful, so
solemn! The exercises came to a close and the procession of whitefgowned girls moved
slowly down the aisle, and then-the fond farewells to teachers and classmates.

Marie woke up with a start. Had she fallen asleep? Was this really a dream? A
knock sounded, and her roommate entered with a cheery smile and greeting.
"Wake up. Don't you know this is Commencement Day? What are you dayfdream-
Marie nodded, but did not reveal her thoughts. While she was getting ready she
recalled her Hrst dream, and one sentence kept running through her mind, "No glory is
worth that price." Her choice was made, her career was settled.

Dreams and fancies idle seem
To those who have some aim,
They're not content to sit and dream
While others rise to fame.
Yet, if there were no dreamers,
How dreary life would seem!
For those who make life pleasant,
Are often those who dream.
They show us what life ought to be,
They give us an ideal,
For ofttimes most unpleasant are
The happenings that are real.
And dreams will not hurt anyone,
They spur one on to fight,
So let's work our best in daytime,
And dream awhile at night.

The whole world's been ringing lately
With praise of what Lindbergh has doneg
But I'd like the fact brought to notice,
That he's not the only brave one.
He dared face the mists of the ocean,
But I don't think that was so great,
Imagine the perils so fearful we dare,
Each day at three'thirty and eight.
For those are the hours when "We" are on hand,
Our trustworthy "pilot" and bus.
The "flight" that we make every day to H. A.,
It surely plays havoc with us.
With our hearts beating fast but our hopes beating high,
We enter the little machine,
With a leap and a bound it glides clear off the ground,
And begins right away to careen.
Our ears have been trained to catch each slightest sound,
We listen for rattle or clinkg
Ah ha, the machinery's all right today,
We'll arrive there in safety," we think.
So we settle back snugly and hold on so tight,
To prevent being dashed to the ground,
For that little machine is most careful to take
Every rise in the road that is found!
We" never use four wheels at one time at all,
We sway to the left and the right,
And we all feel relieved when our dear old H. A.,
With its lofty red dome, comes in sight.
We alight from the bus with a dignified CPD air,
With hair tossed and hats all awry,
And say with a gay smile, "The ride was so nice,"
When we really feel ready to cry.
Yet, strange it may seem fbut I said we were bravej,
Threefthirty we're all gathered there
To embark on the perilous "flight" once again,
And the dangerous journey to dare.
So cheer, if you wish, that brave hero called 'LWe,"
And praise him and fete him and fuss,
But we'd rather praise our brave "pilot" and "plane,"
So here are three cheers just for L'Us."

The Current of Sympathy
with the Criminal
There can be no doubt that the attitude of society toward the criminal has changed.
It was not so very long ago that the combat with crime was waged with most inhuman
cruelty. Extreme and barbarous penalties were inflicted, since it was thought that these
constituted the best means of checking or deterring crime. Indeed, the whole action of the
law was instigated by the principle of vengeance. Today, as we know, all this has changed.
There is no longer a spirit of vengeance in the infliction of punishment. As a matter of
fact, the very principle behind the administration of the law has changed. It is directed
now, not only towards punishing the criminal, but, in a larger measure, towards reforming
him, and most of all, towards deterring the mass of potential wrongfdoers. As I have said
above, there can be no doubt that the attitude of society towards the criminal has changed.
This changed attitude has not only manifested itself in the preceding reforms, which I
have but touched upon, but in many ways besides.
At the present time there appears to be a general tendency on the part of society to
side with the criminal. This tendency exists to such a degree that today we speak of "the
current of sympathy for the criminal." By this expression we mean, of course, the same
general tendency to side with the criminal. In a more specific way, we mean the lenient
treatment of prisoners, the juries' recommendations to the presiding judges for leniency,
the light sentences imposed, and Hnally, the many loopholes of escape from punishment
open to the criminal.
Sympathy for the criminal has actually grown out of the realization that the harsh
methods formerly in use did not constitute the best means of checking and deterring crime.
These harsh methods and laws had an effect, of course, upon those persons who come
under their immediate jurisdiction, but they accomplished nothing towards reforming the
criminal and deterring those who were at liberty to commit crimes. Society realized that the
law had a higher mission than merely punishing wrongfdoers. That higher mission was,
not only to punish the criminal, but to reform him and, if possible, to send him out of conf
finement fitted to again take his place in the community. To accomplish this difficult
but, on the whole, praiseworthy plan, milder penal laws and punishments have been
Now the question is, "just what is this sympathy?" Is it actually the expression of a
"sloppy sentimentalityf' as some have termed it? It is highly improbable that any humane
civilization would deliberately sympathize with a criminal and seek to ameliorate his conf
dition and lighten his punishment, disregarding the consequences of his crime and the fact
that he deserves a punishment in proportion to his crime. Humanity condemns the crimif
nal for his crime. At the same time, it cannot check the natural feeling of pity that arises
from the realization that, in spite of all, the criminal is a human being like the rest of hu'
manity, and that if he had been rightly directed in his youth, he would never have been
guilty of his misdeeds. Indeed, this realization is actually the foremost cause of the symf
pathy for the criminal. There are, of course, certain people today who cling to the argument
introduced by criminologists like Lombroso and Fererro, and propagated today by Charles
Darrow, that the criminal is a special type of the human race, half lunatic, half savageg in
short, that there is a "criminal class" who, because of certain conditions of heredity,
poverty, and environment, cannot be classed with the rest of humanity, but must be
regarded as a special type. But the people who uphold this argument are relatively few.

The greater mass of people today realizes that there is no such thing as a "criminal type."
Even disregarding the greatest refutation of the criminologist's argument, its denial of free
will, its error has become immediately apparent by considering the criminals of today.
They are not degenerate men and women with traces of atavism or lunacyg nor are the
majority found to be of the lower classes of society or among the extreme poor. On the
contrary, they are ordinary men and women, perfectly sane, with no traces of degeneracy,
they are distributed among all classes of society, and, finally, the most violent criminals
are not produced from the extreme poor.
The sympathy for the criminal arises from the realization of the falsity of the criminolf
ogist's argument. We know that there is in all of us a tendency to deviate from the straight
road, that the germ of crime is universally present in mankind, and that if we consider our
evil inclinations as such, we all have criminal tendencies. It is this knowledge that has
given rise to the sympathy for the criminal.
In addition to this, society realizes that our present method of dealing with crime may
be compared to the action of the woodsman who allows all his trees to grow without any
care or attention, and when they are full grown, proceeds to rid himself of the bad ones
by simply cutting them down.
It goes without saying that it is generally acknowledged that the proper training of
young men and women will do much toward alleviating crime, for crime is largely a prob'
lem of youth. The juvenile delinquent of today becomes the criminal of tomorrow. We all
know that it is not the lack of education that causes crime, but the lack of moral training,
and the subsequent lack of character.
Still another and more specific cause of the sympathy with the criminal lies in the
defectiveness of our present criminal laws. There are so many types of criminals, so many
different forms of crime, so many varying circumstances, and only one law or punishment
to apply to all of them. Then, instead of reforming the criminal and deterring crime, our
treatment of criminals does exactly the opposite.
When a man commits a crime like theft, embezzlement, forgery, etc., it does not
follow that he is a professional criminal. If he can be helped, saved the shame of exposure,
and eventually reformed, he may never commit a crime again. But if he is haled into prison,
measured and photographed, and his disgrace published, we are doing our best to help him
to remain a criminal, for when he does come out of prison, if he endeavors to live up to the
standards of the community, he will find every door shut against him, and he will never
be allowed to forget his prison record. That man will continue to commit crime.
But by far the most vicious part of our criminal law is its injustice, which allows one
man, who is competently shielded by expert criminal lawyers and wealth and standing, to
go free, and condemns another man, with no money or standing, to the electric chair.
In summing up, then, we might say that the sympathy for the criminal is not the
expression of a "sloppy sentimentalityf' but rather the expression of a genuine regret at
the conditions made evident by crime, at the civilization which produces criminals, at the
society which maintains them, at the laws which have proved ineiiicient to cope with the
criminals, and at the injustice and incompetency of these same laws, and finally, this symf
pathy is the expression of a genuine desire to remove these conditions and eventually to
destroy crime altogether.
As for the direction of this sympathy, it does not tend so much towards benefiting
the criminal, as toward benefiting society itself. For, by destroying crime, society protects
itself from criminals.
Now the point is, just what has this sympathy accomplished? Has it actually in-
creased crime? I do not think that the sympathy has increased crime, but I do believe that,

to a certain extent, it has been harmful-not in itself, but in its misdirection. For example,
I have said that one of the chief causes of the sympathy for the criminal lies in the realiza'
tion of the injustice and incompetency of our present criminal laws. Nevertheless, in spite
of its defectiveness, nothing can be accomplished by abolishing overnight the present
system of dealing with criminals. And this is what society, actuated by sympathy, is now
tending to do.
just now there is a widespread movement for the abolition of capital punishment.
Disregarding the arguments for and against capital punishment, if it were abolished and
life imprisonment substituted, it would mean that every murderer in the United States
would be sentenced to the average confinement of from ten to fourteen years, under our
present criminal law. Such would be the whole chaotic state of affairs if society were to
succeed in abolishing our present criminal system.
We all know that this criminal system is defective. Nevertheless, as yet it can only
be modified, and only gradually can it be reformed. Imperfect as it may be, it at least
affords more protection to society than would some of the more humane but impracticable
schemes for its improvement. And, after all, this is the most important thing to be conf
sidered-the protection of humanity.
Then again, here is another proof of the misdirection of the sympathy for the criminal.
We all know, of course, that the proper training of young men and women will solve the
problem of crime. But, in the meantime, what are we to do about the girls and boys who
have matured into womanhood and manhood only to menace society? Are we to allow
them to kill and plunder while we placidly wait for the time when the perfect moral train'
ing for the younger generation shall be found and put into effect? Whatever can be said
in extenuation of criminals, it must be admitted that there are certain criminals today who
cannot be reformed, and if society is to preserve itself from destruction, it must apprehend
and convict those members of the community who have become menaces to the rest. If,
in the future, this sympathy is rightly directed, it will succeed slowly but surely in revolu-
tionizing our whole system of treating criminals, until a method has been found that will
ful6ll the true purpose of our criminal law-to reform the criminal so that he can again
take his place in society and, most of all, deter the mass of potential wrongfdoers.

The Little Blue Book With Our Marks
We once knew a book-at Hrst it was new-
Oh, the prettiest shade it was, so blue!
With spotless white pages and so nicely bound,
With cover so trim and edges so round.
It was used, it was used, it ne'er wore,
We'd be glad if it wasn't no more.
Oh, that little Blue Book with our marks!
To hear them was never a lark.
We were either proud or shy,
As we felt every eye,
And at every new number
We'd smile or we'd sigh,
If they were very bad we would frown,
While the class seemed to smile all around.
Till we finished we bore it,
We always abhorred it,
The little Blue Book with our marks.

Our first holiday this year occurred on September twentieth, when we celebrated the
breaking of ground for the Hudson River Bridge which, so it is thought, is destined to
make old Fort Lee famous. Though we had been but a week in school, we were nothing
loath to celebrate by "a day off." Will schoolgirls ever change, I wonder!
Then came our first annual holiday, Holy Angels Day. However, as it fell on Sunday,
we celebrated it on Monday, October 3d. We had visited Newburgh the year before,
and so enjoyable did the trip up the Hudson prove to be, that we decided upon another
trip this year. This time, however, Bear Mountain was the place selected. Monday
morning, bright and early, we gathered on the pier of the Hudson River Day Line to await
the coming of the boat. Once on board the boat the time passed rapidly in pleasant snatches
of conversation and singing, the ukeleles of certain members of the school being very much
in evidence. We were charmed, too, by the beautiful scenery which is always at its best
in October, and before we realized it we had arrived at our destination. We spent several
happy hours at Bear Mountain, and not least among the pleasures that awaited us there
was a row upon the picturesque lake. We lingered until the last moment, and it was with
real regret that we made our way down the mountain to the boat landing. As we came
down the river, the weather which had been beautiful all day suddenly changed. The
wind began to blow and dark clouds obscured the sun. By the time we reached New York

the storm had assumed the proportions and violence of a cloudburst. However, the enjoy'
ment of the day had been too great to be driven away even by such a storm, and we still
look back upon it with pleasure.
On October 21st a delightful musical recital was given by the Hilger Trio. We were
already familiar with the splendid music of this famous trio, but we were more than ever
charmed by this recital. As we left the hall we agreed with the inimitable Shakespeare,
"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved by concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils."
Soon, Hallowe'en, the night of things uncanny, was with us, and we gathered in the
gym for a good oldffashioned Hallowe'en Party. The Seniors played the part of hostesses.
The first number was a recitation by the Seniors, a poem which, while in perfect harmony
with the occasion, included a welcome to our dear Sister Superior. The lights were then
extinguished and many ghostly games were played while the Seniors ilitted about in
costumes representing ghosts, witches, cats, pumpkins, corn, and scarecrows. Having
thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for some time we repaired to the dining rooms where a
delicious repast was served. Soon afterwards we departed, regretfully, but taking with
us the memory of a delightful evening.
On November third we assembled in the hall to listen to a lecture entitled 'fHeretics
and Orthodox in Modern Literature." The lecture was delivered by Mr. Louis H. Wet'
more, former Literary Editor of the New 'York Times, who is well known both in America
and in England. Mr. Wetmore chose four modern authors to exemplify his subjectf
George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells as the heretics, and Gilbert Keith Chesterton and
Hilaire Belloc as the orthodox. Mr. Wetmore is intimately acquainted with all four of
these authors and was able to narrate many humorous incidents and reminiscences concern'
ing them. In his brisk, invigorating manner he visualized each of these men for us. George
Bernard Shaw he represented as a kindly old Irish gentleman, hiding his geniality under a
mask of cynicism. H. G. Wells was introduced to us as the most accomplished man of
letters in the world today, and at the same time he was "humanized" by the description of
his irascible temper. It was impossible not to laugh at the delightful anecdotes concerning
Gilbert Chesterton's absentfmindedness, while Hilaire Belloc became a most intimate
Hgure in the description of the man himself and his soldierly attitude toward Catholicism
and life. Although Mr. Wetmore's lecture was all too short, he probably taught us more
concerning these four authors in his brief hour of speaking than we could possibly gain
from any amount of study or reading.
On December third our Annual Bazaar was opened. For several weeks previous great
interest reigned in the school. Preparations were made and the gym was decorated in gay
colors. Competition among the different classes for the greatest number of books was keen,
and each girl vied with every other in putting her own class at the head of the list. Finally,

at the end of the Bazaar, it was found that the Sophomore Class had come out first, after a
very close contest.
The first event after our return to school in january was a lecture by Reverend
William A. Griffin, LL.D., Diocesan Director of the Society for the Propagation of the
Faith. Father Griffin told us many interesting facts about the missions and appealed to us
for our prayers and any other assistance we might be able to lend to the cause. His lecture
incited us to work even harder than before for the purpose of bringing into the fold those
"other sheep who know not Christ."
On January nineteenth we had the pleasure of listening to a violin recital given by
Professor Karl Klein, with Mrs. Bruno Oscar Klein, the mother of the noted violinist, as
accompanist. Professor Klein entertained us with many beautiful selections. The time
passed all too quickly, and we left the hall with the charm of his haunting melodies linger-
ing on in our memories.
February seventeenth held a special treat for us in the form of a very interesting and
novel illustrated lecture by Mr. Raines. The lecture was in the form of memoirs of a trip
through Alaska and the Klondike region. The speaker was thoroughly familiar with this
section of our country, having traveled over the many different routes, pictures of which
he showed us. The scenery was of almost bewitching beauty, especially the many glaciers
and snow scenes. Many of the interesting customs of the native Eskimos were explained
to us and also many amusing and exciting incidents which had happened to him on his
travels. Everyone enjoyed the lecture to the utmost and it added greatly to our store of
knowledge of that fascinating country.
"All good things are three" is an old saying, and in our case it proved to be very true,
for on April twentieth we enjoyed the third rare musical treat of the scholastic year in the
form of a piano recital given by Madame Sturkow Ryder, famous American pianist and
composer. As soon as Madame Ryder had begun her recital, her wonderful tone and her
power of combining freedom with sufficient restraint were noticed. She played her various
selections in three groups. In the first group were a "Prelude" by Grieg and two old
Italian pieces. The second group consisted of "The Nightingale," a beautiful gypsy melody
arranged by Liszt, "Perpetual Motion" by MacDowell, and "Antics" by the pianist herf
self. This latter was a delightful little composition, inspired, Madame Ryder told us, by
her cat which is called "Antics," It cleverly represented in melody the various moods of
"Antics," The third and last group contained four compositions-a "Gavotte," Ghopin's
famous "Minuet Waltz," a "Spanish Dance," and a "Tarantella." We were all charmed by
Madame Ryder's wonderful rendition of these beautiful numbers and only regretted the
brevity of the program.
As our copy goes to press the thought of several delightful events which still await
us is before us. Among these, the one to which we naturally look forward with the keenest
anticipation is the celebration of the Golden jubilee of our beloved Directress, Venerable
Sister Mary Theophista. Of those hfty golden years, by far the greater number has been

spent here in our dear school, and we are glad that the opportunity will be ours of express'
ing appreciation of the noble work which Sister has done during these years. May God
bless our dear Directress with yet many years of useful toil in His Vineyard.
Two other delightful events will be the lectures which are scheduled for May fifth
and twelfth, to be given by Dr. James Walsh. As Dr. Walsh is to us a familiar lecturer, we
know what a rare intellectual treat is in store for usp As he is also a lecturer whose name is
known throughout the length and breadth of our land we feel that no comment is necessary
in order to make our readers understand what his lectures mean to those who are fortunate
enough to listen to him.
The Senior'-Iunior Dinner is another event to which we are eagerly looking forward,
and those of our readers who are Alumnae of the school have only to recall a similar event
in their Senior year at H. A. to understand what the evening of May tenth will mean to
the Class of '28.

Since Lindy crossed the ocean
In his little aeroplane,
Aviation's been the topic
On every tongueg in every brain.
As we watch the planes go soaring
Up into heaven's vault so blue,
How we pine, and wish sincerely
That we the same might do.
But why waste time in sighing,
For aviators we all can be
If we soar in our plane, "The Spirit,"
Up to God and regions free.

We remember, we remember,
The one who time did scorn,
The door that, softly opening,
She came slipping through each morn.
She always came a wink too late,
And never stayed all day,
And once when she arrived on time,
She took our breath away.
We remember, we remember,
The ferns so green and bright-
Oh, ne'er might we approach them,
Lest their crispness we might blight.
The window on whose sunny sill
A poor, frail plant was set,
It looked so very sickly, but
We hope it's living yet.
We remember, we remember,
That room where we did sing,
The halls and corridors about
With melody did ring,
Our spirits, that are heavy now,
Did soar up to the sky,
And our harmonious voices
With sweetest birds did vie.
We remember, we remember,
Those days we could not lend
Attention to the theme in hand,
When periods had no end.
We know 't is childish nonsense,
Yet we cannot help but say,
We'd give the world for that same bliss
For just another day.

Senior, Senior, studious Senior,
How does your knowledge grow?
Latin, History, English, French,
And Philosophy, all in a row.
There was a fern in our room,
It tried so hard to grow,
Till someone turned the heat on,
And now, it ain't no mo'.
There was a little liquid
In a bottle, big and brown,
She took a little smell
And it almost knocked her down.
Oh, do not smile at ECHOBS
Or ever dare to laugh,
That privilege has been reserved
For members of its staff!
There was a good teacher who ruled a school,
She had many pupils who didn't mind the rules.
She told them how ideal scholars should be,
Then sent them to study Philosophy.
When we laugh and when we talk,
When we smile and when we frown,
Up comes a little pencil
And a big "bad mark" goes down.

Remember, too, this warning, grave:
Those plants, don't dare to touch!
They are the best in all the school
And must be kept as such.
Each year the Senior Class is warned,
So, juniors, hark to this:
Guard well the plants, and study hard,
Then you shall live in bliss.

Will some one please explain to me,
'Cause some one sure must know,
When did the man get in the moon?
It wasn't always so.
If you read your Greek mythology,
You'll see very clear therein,
They call the moon "Miss Luna,"
They don't mention any "him,"
Now, I'll grant the sun is Phoebus,
And that's a man's real name,
But to have two men up in that sky-
I think it's just a shame!
Now, ladies, don't be backward,
Let's make the fact quite plain-
The men may have the daytime
If they put Miss Luna back again
But if they still persist in having
A man up in the moon,
We'll put old Phoebus on the run,
And place a lady there right soon

The sun had not yet risen,
Nor the birds begun to peep,
But still we knew 't was morning,
'Cause they woke us from our sleep.
I used to think the morning
Was the nicest part of day,
It still would be the nicest,
If in our beds we'd stay.
It isn't half so bad, you know,
Once you're washed and dressedg
The hard part is to jump right up-
We call the bell a pest!
When once vve're all assembled,
Our eyes then open Wide,
And by the time the Chapel's reached,
We've surely turned the tide.
Yes, truly, we all love the rnorng
The sun which shines so bright,
But, goodness, how we'd love to have
A tvventyffourfhour night!

At the Crib of Christ the King
To the junior Class was entrusted the task of producing the annual Yuletide enter'
tainment. The play was a real Christmas drama connected with the Nativity of the Christ
Child, and was entitled "At the Crib of Christ the King." The cast of characters was

The play was divided into four acts. The curtain rose first upon the shepherds tending
their flocks upon the judean plains. Suddenly they are astonished at the sight of an angel
who brings them the joyful tidings of the birth of Christ the King. In reverential awe they
follow the angel to the Cave of Bethlehem, and there worship the newfborn King.
The second act brings us to the Court of Herod, Roman ruler of the Jews. He is
visited by the Magi on their journey to Bethlehem in search of the Infant King. Herod is
alarmed on hearing them inquire for "Him Who is born King of the jews." This scene was
made very impressive by the presence of court attendants in rich attire, while at the same
time an air of gaiety was lent to it by the graceful little dancers who are called in to dance
before the king and to banish the unrest that has seized upon him.
In the third act We End ourselves in the simple home of a benevolent jewish family.
The children, Miriam, Esther, Ruth, and Benjamin, beg for a story from their old grand'
mother. She narrates for them the neverfold tale of Tobias and the Hsh. The arrival of a

beggar clad in tattered garments frightens them for a moment. However, they bestow
alms upon him, and immediately their charity is rewarded. The erstwhile beggar is transf
formed into an angel who announces to them the "good tidings of great joy." They listen
to the story of the Babe in the manger, and then they also go forth to seek him.
The scene of the last act is laid at Bethlehem in the cold, rough stable. We gazed upon
the dear little Christ Child, wrapped in swaddling clothes and resting peacefully on the
rough straw, we listened to Mary singing the Magniiicat, and we looked with love upon
the gentle joseph as he stood in rapt admiration close to the manger. We envied the
jewish family, the shepherds, and the Magi as they knelt there in close adoration. In the
distance we saw the Angel Choir, and their sweet "Gloria in Excelsis Deo" brought the
drama to a successful and realistic finis as we knelt in spirit at the crib of Christ the King.

The Sacred Ray
To our great joy we were told that this year a Lenten drama was to be given and
that to us the honor of producing it would fall. Immediately we entered into the spirit of
it and resolved upon doing our best. The time allotted for practice was rather short, but
perhaps there was an advantage in that, for we knew that if it was to be a success, great
effort must be put into it. -
The play chosen was a Biblical one, called "The Sacred Ray," an original dramatizaf
tion by a former H. A. class of the book entitled "The Ray."
The part of Gamaliel, a member of the Sanhedrin, was skilfully rendered by Grace
Christ, while the role of Susanna, the sister of Gamaliel, was entrusted to the dramatic
powers of Margaret Eisenmann. Very real, indeed, seemed the struggle of the former
against the conviction constantly thrusting itself upon him that the Christus was in very
truth the promised Messiah. With equal earnestness did Susanna plead with her brother
to accept and acknowledge his faith in the Divinity of the Nazarene. Eleanor Hennessy
and Alice Decker did justice to the parts of Nicodemus and joseph of Arimathea, respectivef
ly. It was easy to see that they put their best efforts into the work as they eloquently
defended the cause of the Master. The gentle Rachel fa friend of Susannal was splendidly
portrayed by Helen'Oliva whose voice and personality were well suited to the part. To
Mary Farrell was assigned the part of Miriam fanother friend of Susannaj, and her prof
tecting friendship acted as a splendid foil to the childlike love of Susanna for her two
friends. Irene Dowling impersonated Pilate, and displayed a calmness and dignity in
striking contrast to the mob of frenzied jews who clamored for the death of the "just
One." How the sentence of death could have been passed by Pilate was hard to under'
stand after the clever bit of acting by Inez Cavinato Cas Claudia, the wife of Pilatej in which
she pleaded eloquently and almost passionately that the life of the Master be spared. The
role of Mary Magdalen was taken by Claire Pohly, and the pathos of her part reached a
climax in the solo, "Friend of Sinners." The parts of the other two Marys were played
by Angela Bodet and Eleanor Hennessy, and a particularly striking and pathetic scene was
that in which the three Marys, after their return from Calvary, sang a very touching and
beautiful trio. The parts of the Holy Women were taken by Delia Keating, May Peley,
Helen Sella, Helen Seuferling, and Loretta Trainor. A striking tableau of the Crucifixion
was presented, and another, of the Resurrection with Helen Sella as the Christ, furnished
a fitting climax to this inspiring drama.

Foreign Mission Activities
This year, as in years past, a great part of the energy at Holy Angels was directed
toward work for the Foreign Missions. Everyone, from our dear teachers down to the
tiniest tot in the primary school, showed a lively interest and did as much as possible to
aid in the work of spreading the Light of Faith in those lands where to a great extent the
darkness of paganism and idolatry still reigns.
A letter received shortly after the opening of school,from Reverend Daniel H. Sullivan,
S. J., whom we last year adopted as our Missionary Brother, did much to enkindle anew
our interest in his work and that of other noble missionaries. Some snapshots enclosed in
his letter told us in graphic terms of the upfhill nature of the mission work, and led us to
imagine some of the hardships which the priests and sisters who have devoted their lives
to the cause are obliged to endure. The bright little faces that smiled up at us from the
pictures aroused a deep sympathy and made us wish that we might do much more to help
them. Our assistance in a monetary way has not been as great as we would like it to be,
but we have tried to help in other ways, especially by prayer and the forwarding of Catholic
literature. From the close of school last June up to the present writing, some seven hundred
pieces of Catholic literature have been sent to Father Sullivan, the cost of postage on same
having been defrayed by the Senior and Junior Classes. Besides, a number of pieces of
altar linens for use in his Chapels, as well as pictures, medals, rosaries, and various other
devotionals were forwarded to Father for distribution among his dusky "little lambs."
Several "Cake and Cream Sales" were held during the year, and the proceeds went to the
Crusaders' Treasury to be forwarded to Father Sullivan.
Interest in the collecting of stamps and tinfoil was quite general throughout the school,
with the result that our Mission Treasury was enriched by the sale of the tinfoil, and
several large shipments of stamps were made to Maryknoll.

SOME OF OUR PROTEGEES
On January eleventh we had the pleasure of listening to a 'iMission Talk" by Reverf
end William A. Griffin, LL.D., Diocesan Director of the Society for the Propagation of the
Faith in the Newark Diocese. During the course of his talk, Father Griffin cited examples
of the hardships which the valiant priests and sisters are undergoing in the Foreign Mission
field. This talk was a great incentive to us, and immediately our membership list grew.
The Sophomore Class was the Hrst to register one hundred per cent membership, and the
Junior and Secretarial Classes quickly followed. In due time the remaining classes made
an effort to reach the same high standing, and at the present writing we believe that we
have one hundred per cent membership throughout the school, the members of the High
and Secretarial Schools being registered in the Society for the Propagation of the Faith,
and those of the Grammar and Primary Schools in the Association of the Holy Childhood.
Among the offerings sent to the Newark Office were "ransoms" for twelve pagan
babies. We feel sure that this feature of the work is especially dear to Him Who once saidg
"Suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom
of Heaven." Mass stipends and mitefbox offerings helped very materially to swell our
general fund, and while at the present time it is not possible to cell accurately what the
fruits of our little sacrifices will net us, we believe that we shall have a total of about five
hundred dollars to our credit.
As in other years, the members of the sewing classes have given generously of their
time for work upon altar linens of different kinds. Various missions have been the ref
cipients of these labors of love, and we feel sure that from whatever corner of the Master's
Vineyard in which they are used, sweet blessings will be wafted to dear H. A., to rest
upon the busy little workers who made them.
May each succeeding year witness a growth in this noble work, and may the future
pupils of our loved Alma Mater strive to win for their school and ours a place of honor
in the rank of cofworkers with the noble missionaries in the "field afar."

Children of Mary Notes
Through graduation last June we were robbed of some of the active members of our
chapter of the Children of Mary, but the first meeting in September showed that, though
the number had been decreased, the zeal and fervor of the girls were as strong as ever.
They early in the year manifested a lively devotion to their heavenly Mother, and this has
increased steadily during the school months. That it may continue to do so during their
whole life is our most earnest prayer.
The election of Sodality officers took place at the Hrst meeting, with the following
results: President, Eleanor Hennessy, Secretary, Loretta Trainorg Treasurer, Catherine
As was customary in former years the Children of Mary received Holy Communion
in a body the third Thursday of each month, and on the evening of the same day the meet'
ing of the Sodality was held. These meetings were presided over by our beloved Directress
whose wise and loving counsel has aided us in our endeavors to become worthy Children
Ten aspirants proved themselves worthy to be called by the beautiful name of Chilf
dren of Mary, and were received into the Sodality on the Feast of the Immaculate Conf
ception. Our Spiritual Director presented them with their medals and certificates as
tokens of their enrollment in the ranks of Our Lady.
We had a very pleasant surprise on the evening of February 14th when a reception
supper was tendered to the Children of Mary in the Seniorfjunior Dining Room. There
were many tempting dainties, but the most attractive of all was a delicious cake which was
inscribed with our title. Each member received a beautiful picture as a souvenir of the
The Sodality continued in its good work this year as formerly, supplying linen to be
used in making altar linens for the Missions and flowers to adorn the altar during the Forty
Hours' Devotion at Easter and other feasts of the year.
A second reception of aspirants took place on Ivlay 3d, with the result that our
membership was increased by ten. This means that nearly every member of the High
School is now a member of the Sodality. Surely this condition is most pleasing to her whom
we delight to call our Mother.
On May 14th a second pleasant surprise awaited us in the form of a Children of Mary
Luncheon. Needless to say, the affair was enjoyed by all those who were fortunate enough
to be present.
And now the school year draws to a close. For some of us it is also the close of school
life. May she who has been our Patron, our Protection, and our Guide thus far in life
continue so in years to come, and may her sheltering mantle ever prove to be a safe refuge
for us when help is needed most.

The year 1927 witnessed the marriage of ive members of the Holy Angels Alumnae
Association. The first of these took place on June second, when Miss Octavia Kramer of
the Class of '22 became the bride of Lieutenant George Hubbard Potter of the United
States Marine Corps.
In the same month, Miss Mary Sheridan, '21, was married to Mr. Edward Donahue.
The wedding ceremony took place at the Church of the Madonna, Fort Lee, N. J. Mr. and
Mrs. Donahue have made their home in Southold, L. I.
A third wedding took place on the 11th of August, when Miss Ellen M. Reilly, '16,
was married to Mr. Ralph Merz. Mr. and Mrs. Merz are now residing in Leonia, N. J.
On the 13th of August, Miss Lillian Lane of the Class of '23 became the bride of Mr.
George P. Bodet at the Church of St. John the Martyr, New York City. Mr. Bodet is the
brother of Miss Rose Bodet, also of the Class of '23. At present, Mr. and Mrs. Bodet are
making their home in Brooklyn.
The fifth wedding was that of Miss Jeanette Bernhard, a member of the Class of 1919,
and later instructor in physical training at Holy Angels. She is now Mrs. Edward Gilroy.
Again this year, as in former years, has come news of the continued success of Miss
Katherine Sterne, '24, at Wellesley College. Through the New 'York Times we have
learned that she has been elected a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society and also that she
has become the recipient of the Durand Scholarship. The latter is the highest honor that
can be conferred upon a student of Wellesley College. We were not surprised to hear of
these new honors, since we already knew that Katherine had maintained the highest
standing in her class during the four years of her college course.
Miss Ethel M. Sullivan, also a member of the Class of '24, will be among those to don
the cap and gown for Commencement Exercises in June. Ethel will graduate from the
College of Mount St. Vincent, New York, which college she has been attending since her
graduation from Holy Angels in '24.
Another of the June graduates will be Miss Dorothy Krug, '25, who this year is
completing a threefyear course in a New York Kindergarten Training School. We feel
sure that the little ones who will have "Dot" for a teacher will be happy, indeed.
Our immediate predecessors at H. A. have scattered in divers directions and have
chosen various paths. Miss Marian Christ and Miss Mary Sullivan are now students at
Hunter College, New York City, Miss Concetta Mango and Miss Lucille Nolan are at
Mount St. Vincent's College. The Misses Julia Cullen and Mary McNally have elected
the teaching profession, the former being now at Montclair Normal School and the latter
at the Newark Normal. Miss Irene Fasolo and Miss Marguerite Quinn have chosen work
among the tiny tots, and are now studying kindergarten work at Miss Harriet Mills
Kindergarten Training School, New York City. The Misses Dorothy Hannigan and
Florence Murphy are among those pursuing a college career, the former at Fordham Uni'
versity, and the latter at the College of New Rochelle. To Miss Johannah Horgan has
come the highest callfthe call to the religious life. On September 8th, last, she entered the
Franciscan Order at Peekskill, N. Y., where she is now a happy postulant. Miss Elizabeth
Harrison is at present studying at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn,preparatory to a course in
nursing which she intends to take when her work at Pratt shall have been completed.
During the past year the Holy Angels Alumnae Association was admitted to member'
ship in the International Federation of Catholic Alumnae. At a meeting of the New Jersey
Chapter, held at St. Vincent's Academy, Newark, last fall, our Alumnae Association was
represented by its President, Miss May Kenelly, the Secretary, Miss Gertrude Ewald, and
the Misses Marion Hannigan, '17, and Marie Cavaliere, '22.

The scholastic year was hardly well under way when Holy Angels was called upon
to mourn the loss of an old and steadfast friend-Venerable Sister Mary Jerome. For the
six years from june, 1921, to August, 1927, Sister Jerome had been Superior at the Inf
stitute and in her earlier life she had been for eight years a member of the faculty. For
some time, Sister had been in very poor health, and last summer it was deemed best to
remove her to Baltimore, where it was hoped the warm climate would prove benehcial to
her. Evidently, however, her life work had been completed, and just at noon on October
first, a sudden "Veni, Spousa Christi," sounded in her ears. A few brief moments passed
and, with the words, "Take me, dear Jesus," on her lips, Sister passed quickly and quietly
from this life into the eternal life beyond.
On September 25, 1927, Mr. Philip Bodet, father of the Misses Rose Bodet, '23,
Dolores Bodet, '26, and Angela Bodet, '28, was called suddenly to his eternal reward.
Though Mr. Bodet had not been well for some time, his death was most unexpected and,
coming suddenly as it did, was a great shock to his devoted family.
November 16, 1927, witnessed the death of another parent of three Holy Angels
students. Mrs. Rosalie Pohly, mother of the Misses Claire Pohly, '28, and Helen and
Marion Pohly, '30, was the one to answer this time the summons of the Angel of Death.
Mrs. Pohly had been seriously ill for several months, and the loving care lavished upon her
by the members of her family proving unavailing, God asked of her the supreme sacrifice.
To the members of both of these families the sympathy of the faculty and students of
Holy Angels is extended. R. I. P.
On a green and quiet hillside,
In a still, secluded spot,
Sleeps, enwrapped in peace unbroken,
One whom sorrow troubles not.
Quickly did the Master call him,
After noble service done,
To bestow His fullest blessings
And the crown of life he'd won.
Though I can but miss his presence,
For he seems so far away,
Yet, to know he is in Heaven,
Makes me happy every day.
And no matter how I miss him,
This shall comfort be to me-
His new life is far more happy
Than his life on earth could be.

ID the thought occur to you, as you turned the foregoing
pages of this interesting book, that a vast amount of ener-
getic effort was involved in its production?
When the 1928 EcHoEs staff took upon themselves this responsi-
bility, they accepted a real undertaking.
There was the planning of the book-determining the character
of the opening pages, the decorative art motif, the style of cover,
and many other details that go to make a book of this kind at-
tractive and interesting.
Then the financing-the obtaining of subscriptions, the securing
of advertisements, and the various steps to provide an income
sufficient to fully care for the expense necessary to carry out the
And finally, the actual production-the obtaining of hotographs,
art Work, material for the Write-ups and other reading matter-
and seeing that this material reached the engraver and printer
on schedule time.
Yes, it was a "real job", especially for those to Whom such work
is a new experience.
We congratulate the members of the EcHoEs staff on their out-
standing success and are proud to have been associated with
them in this meritorious work.
