To Jesus And Mary
by Mary Margaret Riccardi
What a wonderful day to start
school! A.H.N. stood majestic against
the September sky as I dashed breath-
lessly across Madison Avenue into
the throng of friends old and new.
We talked gaily, waiting for our class
teachers. And even filing over po-
lished floors, into our classrooms,
we talked, our voices at first lowering
to whispers, then silencing through
the chapel hall.
But You know. You gave us the
crisp autumn air and the leaves falling
like brightly colored confetti. You
were with us on this first day of
school as you will be every day of the
school year, always guiding, always
lending serenity to the gray stone walls
dappled with sunlight, always lending
dignity to the polished floors, no mat-
ter how many of us, laughing and
joking, tread on them. You hushed us
as we walked through chapel hall
You will come with us to our class-
rooms, making the impossible geom-
etry less of an infeasibilityg the puz-
zling biology less of an enigma.
Naturally You will come to our
Sodality meetings. When any one of us
has a particularly good idea, we will
then be more certain of Your presence.
But we will not have forgotten You.
Each morning You will hear our of-
ferings and "Memoraries". You will
smile when we visit You at 10:15 and
Your smiles will broaden when we go
at noontime to rosary.
On Fridays You, Jesus, will wait
patiently for Benediction when we will
renew and strengthen our friendship
Throughout the year we will show
You we are aware of You. With You
we will share our pleasures. When at
our Sodality dance we leave the festive
decorations and music to visit You,
You will know we feel Your Presence.
You will come amidst tears and
laughter to the Senior-Junior Party.
You will know that You are welcome
by the shining faces of Juniors come
to show You their keys, and by the
tired faces of Seniors, come to tell
You of their success.
You, Mary, in your simple mantle
of blue, will reign over happy hearts
and tulle finery at the Holly Ball. And
when you are crowned queen, you will
know your place in our hearts.
You will not fail to attend the
Father - Daughter Dinner nor the
Mother-Daughter Luncheon. You will
taste our eagerness to please and our
parents' joy at receiving our efforts.
A You will walkwith us through hours
of practice for the May Day Parade.
When thatbig day comes, we will hold
highyour banner and march for your
And finally, at graduation You will
reign, for the words "Semper Fidelis"
on the lips of the Seniors will express
not only their loyalty to A.H.N., but
their loyalty to You.
by Mary Murray
I looked to the beyond - eternity.
I saw my Lord and His Mother,
They beckoned me.
Expectantly I trod the way to Them,
But ere I reached my sojourn's half
For as I looked ahead
I saw They were nearly upon me
Coming with arms outstretched.
They, then, reaching me
Enveloped me in the
Spirit of Love,
And taking my hands
Began and continue to guide me
To their home - eternity.
Spotlight On The Seniors
by Clare Rooney
"Gone away are the old ways.
Here to stay are the new ways."
Gone are the days when we, the members of they
class of '56, were freshmen and proudly composed
"School Bells"g when we were sophomores and tried
to win the basketball tournament, when we were jun-
iors and transformed the gym into an underwater
paradiseg when we were seniors and worked hard to
pass those College Boards.
But ahead of us is the exciting, adventurous un-
known. Now we shall experience the happiness of
helping others in our chosen work with our Christian
ROSEMARY CUMMINS principles as our guide.
"A beautiful day, and we're on our way."
Nowwe are on the way,
and would like to thank
Jesus and Mary and all who
have guided and inspired us
in the past four years. We
shall try to live up to the
ideals that you, A.H.N.,
have given us. We shall re-A
main "semper fidelis."

We Shall Never Forget
"O most gracious, superb, and
esteemed senior sisters, we lowly
recalcitrant freshmen . . . hope that
someday, through your spirit of wis-
dom and benevolence, you will deem
us worthy to be called a class." This
quotation will always bring a mild tinge
of red to the checks of our freshmen,
and a smile to their lips, for it is a
part oftheir well-memorized "Fresh-
man Pledge." It brings back vivid
memories of a"FreshmanWeek" which
they shall never forget.
Their pledge of humility was duly
recited to their senior sisters for a
week, and then, on September twenty-
second, the culmination of the Week's
activities took place. Freshmen were
appropriately garbed in prisoners'
caps and each girl sported a ball and
chain formed by a gay balloon and a
string of paper clips. ln keeping with
their "criminal status," names were
temporarily exchanged for prison
numbers, and their identification tags
hanging from their necks completed
When seniors adjudged their con-
victs fit to regale the nearest warden,
the cry was "Off to Thatcher Park"
where a festive picnic luncheon, pre-
pared by the seniors, awaited the girls.
When all had eaten their fill, the sen-
iors proved to be brimming with novel
ideas. Their first surprise, aptly en-
titled "the shoegame," bore a great
resemblance to the activities of a
three-ring circus. At the command of
her senior sister, each girl deposited
her shoes in the middle of the circle,
and at the count of ten, it was "every
man for himself." After half an hour's
searching, freshmen began to wonder
fromwhose fertile brain this surprise
The final activity of the afternoon
was a session of "jury," when Senior
President, Rosemary Cummins, pre-
siding over court, passed judgment on
each of the freshmen. The final ver-
dict awarded by the jury of seniors:
ice-cream sodas at Tollgate!
As they drained their glasses of the
last sip of soda, each and every fresh-
man heldthe same thought. All shared
the expression of thanks which was
voiced by one ofthe freshmen when she
said, "Thank you, seniors, for giving
us such a memorable Freshman Day.
Thank you for a day which we shall

--but here at A.H.N., something new
has not only been added, but multiplied.
One more day of fun has been added to
the curriculum and then multiplied by
sixty-four happy sophomore faces.
This year the sophomore classes
were expecting their usual "blue
Thursday" at school while the fresh-
men and seniors would go off on their
picnic and the juniors would be on their
annual pilgrimage to Auriesville. But
this year was to be different. Sister
Ellen Mary and Sister Frances Marie
announced that the sophomores, too,
could celebrate. Suchjoy we had plan-
ning for an outdoor luncheon when we
would trade gaily decorated box
Nor was this to be the end of sur-
prises. While We were planning lunch
andthe volleyball games to be played,
our teachers were making their own
plans to add to our delight by a show-
ing ofthe movie, "l Dream of Jeanie."
We sophomores are grateful to
those who made this first "Sophomore
Day" a day we shall never forget.
Fortunes Come True
by Mary Alice Conners
Star Eyes, a simple Mohawk girl
who lived more than four hundred
years ago, used to foretell the future
about her tiny Mohawk village. Most
of her predictions never came true,
but one really occurred on September
Star Eyes had decreed that a group
of thirty-six girls would visit her vil-
lage in the first quarter of the Sep-
tember moon many years to come,
and that they and their teachers would
arrive at the village in a strange ve-
hicle with four wheels.
And soit came to pass. The Class
of '57 did visit Star Eyes' village on a
religious pilgrimage to the Shrine of
Our Lady of Martyrs where they vener-
ated the relics of Saint lsaac Jogues,
SJ., and of his companions. As was
predicted, they spent the afternoon
touring the grounds hallowed by these
heroic martyrs and listening to the
story of their work and sufferings.
Perhaps Star Eyes could not envision
the other aspects ofthe day: cameras,
picnic lunches, and long eighteen-inch
pencils, but she had foretold the es-
The Juniors are certain that she
knew the result of their visit. They, at
the end of a day dedicated to Mary,
Queen of Martyrs, boarded the "strange

Among the many organizations here at A.H.N.
there is one that is in reality much more than just
that. It is a way of life! Your membership in this
association does not terminate upon leaving high
school,but lasts for your entire life. Likewise, the
duties as a member of this society are yours for-
ever. The value of such an organization to you--its
goal,the means used to obtain the goal, and the re-
ward--is best expressed inthe motto of this organi-
zation, To Jesus Through Mary.
The purpose of the meetings of this association
is to aid its members to become more Mary-like.
During this school year,
the leaders of the as-
fect, Mary Pat Lyons,
Secretary, Mary The-
resa Higginsg Treas-
urer, Maureen Maloy--
with the advice of the
moderator and of the
director, Sister Francis
Henry and Father Edgar
Holden, O.F.M. Conv.,
initiated a new method
of holding meetings
known as the "unit sys-
tem." This system en-
ables everyone to take a
more active part in
weekly meetings. At the
general meetings held
monthly, members can
obtain a broader view-
point on spiritual as well
as social problems of
the day through the var-
ious unit reports. An
attempt is being made to
perfect this system so
that in the future it may
benefit the members of
this association in the
best way possible.
Since this organi-
zation is a way of life,
it must have both the
spiritual and apostolic
branches. By per-
forming the duties of this
association and by fol-
lowing its rules, such as
Mass and Communion at
school on the first Sat-
urday of each month, the
spiritual part of your
life is happy and peace-
f u l. T h e apostolic
branch of this organi-
zation is in action when
the members, through
their deeds, are influ-
encing others to do good,
and showing that a won-
derful time can be had
much more pleasantly in
the right way than in the
wrong way. Therefore
this organization spon-
sors such activities as
dances, plays, and col-
lections for the poor.
Membership in this
society is something to
strive for and, when ob-
tained, to live, for this
organization is the So-
dality of Our Lady! The
sodality provides the
formula for real hap-
piness in this life as well
as in the next. Are you

Weather Changes Plans
by Margaret Christoff
Rome Day, the day when we were
to meet our Roman friends in com-
petition on the volleyball court, was
set this year for October fifteenth.
Although clouds turned the sky leaden
gray that morning, we were all hope-
ful that the sun would make its ap-
pearance before we reached our des-
tination. The weather appeared to be
improving as we neared the end of our
journey, but soon after our arrival it
started to rain. All the hard work of
the varsity and junior varsity volley-
ball teams had been in vain, for the
games had to be cancelled.
The Romans had some entertain-
ment planned for us, however. A
beautiful movie about the Vatican was
followedby the heartwarming story of

"Alma Mater, hail to thee. . ." So
goes the first line of our school song.
Inspired by the words of this beautiful
song, the six high school classes
raised their hopes high in anticipation
of the volleyball intramurals. Prepara-
tions included preparing cheers,
making mascots and pins, drawing on
blackboards and, in general, arousing
that spirit typical of A.H.N.

A Breath of Paris
by Sandra Nowak
The residents of the Albany area
have had the pleasure of listening to a
renowned group of singers,"The Little
Singers of Paris", made possible by
the arrangements of our music de-
partment. The concert, a benefit per-
formance for our new high school,
was conducted at Gibbons Hall on Siena
College Campus, Sunday, October 16,
at 3 p.m.
The entire student body enthusi-
astically sold tickets, the result of
Sister Mary of the Eucharist's infec-
tious enthusiasm, backed up by her
generous awards: to the winning clas-
ses,the Juniors and grade 8, a trip to
the opera for their teachers and a holi-
day for the girls, to the winning indi-
vidual students, a trip to the opera for
Sandra Nowak, and a gift certificate
for Sally Eckert.
For a change the poor weather did
not detract from the success assured
to by the ticket returns: rather it
seemed to prompt a vast audience to
come and enjoy this magnificent per-
The world renowned organization
is composed of thirty-two youthful
singers, under the direction of Mon-
signor Maillet. When they are not on
tour, the group of seventy receive
training, quarters, food, clothing and
education free of charge at their school
in Paris. Drawn from the less privi-
leged, the boys enter school at the age
of eleven or twelve and remain there
untiltheir voices change. For the rest
of their lives they are given counsel
and assistance when needed.
The choir, known as the "the worlds
favorite boys choir", has given over ten
thousand concerts since it was founded
in 1907. But listen to what the critics
have said: --"The Little Singers of
Paris' completely captivated their au-
dience. The solo voices have a sound
that at times is nearly unbearable in
its poignant beauty."
To see the expression in their
faces, the poise, the wonderous dignity
of these young boys, and to hear their
angelic voices is an experience unfor-

chairmen. The glamorization of the
cafeteria was kept a secret until Sen-
ior sisters escorted Junior sisters in-
to the candlelit dining room. The tables
were adorned with centerpieces of
lovely fall flowers sprinkled with star-
dust and bedecked with the images of
the seven dwarfs.
Entertainment was provided by
Louise Krasevic, whose versatility in
the dancing field amazed all present.
Senior Misses, Peggy Cavanaugh and

arrangement of "Desert Song".
Frances Saunders did an exceed-
ingly fine job as "toast-mistress".
Her quips and sprightly voice were an
added attraction to the introductions .
Father Edgar's words made an
impression upon all and truly made us
see that the motto, "Semper Fidelis",

there to remind us of the end we are
all striving to attain, to "always be

hands on the clock neared nine, Jun-

another door to exciting wonderful e-

"Swing your partner, do si do!"
The gym completely lost its athletic
appearance as it was transformed into
a rustic barn so that a hundred Holy
Names Hayseeds and their escorts
could dance in an atmosphere which
lent itself to square dancing. The oc-
casion was our Sodality dance, on
November 6, 1955. Although square
dancing was the order of the day, there
were several round dances as well, in-
cluding a very effective mixer.
The atmosphere was made espe-
cially authentic by the artistic abilities
of our Juniors and Seniors. At one end
a clever scene portrayed ahayride,
with a jolly farmer driving a drowsy
horse. Indirect lighting seemed to
cast a moon-glow over the whole scene.
The gym windows were decorated on
a competitive scale, and many of us
worked diligently-creating original
ideas, collecting materials, and finally
setting up the finished display. That
night we waited tensely as the win-

ners were announced.
The lucky girls were Su-san Phil-
lips and Pat Rooney, both Juniors.
Their window showed a little girl, re-
presenting a Holy Names Junior, star-
ing pensively at a Harvest Moon, pre-
sumably dreaming about the forth-
coming Sodality dance.
After much strenuous dancing,
naturally we were hungry and thirsty,
so we made our way to the cafeteria.
There, with the able assistance of sev-
eral very willing hostesses, we helped
ourselves to sherbet punch and sev-
eral varieties of cookies. This brief
intermission afforded an opportunity
to relax and chat with friends. Thus
fortified, we returned gaily to the gym,
to dance until we got tired and hungry
again Qwhich didn't take longj.
After the last swing had been swung,
the happy hayseeds danced off to var-
ious places of entertainment, having
proved once again that you can take the
girl out of the square dance but you
can't take the square dance out of the

Withthis ring, l pledge my loyalty
to, l give my love to and l place my
trust in, my beloved Alma Mater-Holy
Names. This thought ofallegiance
was unspokenbut present in the hearts
of every A.H.N. Senior on the night of
November 16, when each received her
band, of gold encrested with the in-
signia andthe motto "Semper Fidelis."
The loyalty is shown in the glow
which radiates from their eyes as
they cascade down the aisles in white
organdy and pink satin. Loyalty-fi-
delity to an A.H.N.er plays the most
important. part in daily activity. ln
accordance with this virtue, for such
it is, on this night of nights the word
loyalty and its meaning takes form in
the hearts of all.
Love and charity also play a part
in our school drama. This charity and
love are evident in the smiles of
warmth and confidence given out to
friends, teachers and parents by all
seniors just before the curtain is
called on this act in which we receive
the cherished symbol of accomplish-
ment -- our school ring.
In our A.H.N. we have most ' defi-
nitely placed our trust. Now we fully
realize that A.H.N. was placing her
trust in us hoping that in carrying her
symbol with us through the years, we
would give her assurance that we are
worthy of that trust.
And so the rings were given, and
received with ready thanks, from
Father Edgar Holden, our chaplain.
Father gave'an inspiring talk on rings
--their origin and their meaning.
Rosemary Cummins, Senior class
president, expressed our sentiments
of gratitude very graciously in a beau-
tiful speech directed to all those who
had made this night possible. To all
those who had given us the opportunity
to be here on this night to receive
A.H.N.'s symbol of loyalty, love and
trust we said, "Thank you."
Rewards Cf Charity
by Margaret Halpin
OnArmistice Day the juniors took
children from St. Cather-ine's Infant
Home out for the day, first to watch
the parade, then downtown for lunch.
This was quite exciting for them, since
it was the first parade for many of
them. lt was particularly a special
day for Kelly, who was experiencing
his first outing. Kelly is five years
old, and a polio victim, and therefore
isn't as fortunate as the others when
it comes time to going places. The
light in Kelly's eyes reflected the joy
in the Juniors' hearts.
Golden Bliss Of Prayers
by Mary Murray
OnNovember 21, 22, and 23, A.H.
N. became quiet. Quite unnaturally
we were "women wrapped in silence."
The reason was that our retreat,
golden bliss of alonement with God,
was taking place under Father Adrian
Brennan O.F.M. Conv.
On the first day,'Father set the
tone with an inspiring talk, "Friend-
ship between Christ and Me." We
realized Christ's love for us and ul-
timately began to question our gener-
osity in return.
That morning Father helped us
greatly by imparting to us through,
"Wanting People to Like Me" a code
for Christian living, generosity, hu-
mility, self-understanding, patience,
charity and meekness.
The talk on "Devotion to Mary"
pointed out the importance of loving
and praying to our Blessed Mother
since she is the mother of God.
Theclosing conference was
"Treatment of Parents and Superi-
ors." The important fact brought
home was that we will always owe
obedience to someone since we are
constantly under God.
lmbued with the spirit of retreat,
we started the second day with a vital
topic: Problems of Dating. During
this conference we determined to o-
bey the laws of the Church concerning
dating primarily to help in our quest
for eternal happiness.
That afternoon Father's confer-
ence dealt with"Prayer." We learned
that God as Our Loving Father answers
our prayers only when they're for our
"The gift of speech," a subject
dear to our hearts, was the last con-
ference. Father told us to appreciate
our voice and not to misuse it!
On the final day of retreat Father
offered a Mass for the girls' inten-
tions thus closing Retreatf
At the breakfast the general con-
sensus of opinion was that this retreat
was the best ever made. May the
futuref prove that we are right. May
Jesus and Mary help us reap the fruits
of this retreat.

Welcome To The King
by Mary Anne Britt
Retreat closed at a very appro-
priate time this year, the beginning of
Advent. This was the perfect time to
put the many resolutions made at
Retreat into practice.
The true spirit of Christmas be-
came a living part of each girl's life,
both spiritually and materially. This
new zeal which the Retreat had im-
parted helped everyone to realize that
Christmas is Christ's Birthday. lt is
not merely the giving and the receiving
of gifts but truly the giving and receiv-
ing of the tiny Babe in the Sacrament
of the Eucharist. It was up to each
girl to prepare her heart for the Prince
From the very first day of Advent
a change could be seen in the school.
The classrooms and the altar of Our
Lady in Chapel were graced with Ad-
vent wreaths to remind each one of the
blessedness of this season. Every girl
began to live these weeks with Mary,
eagerly awaiting the birth of her Di-
vine Son. The tasks which were un-
dertaken at this time were done for the
love of the Infant King Who would soon
reign in the hearts of men.
The joy in the hearts of AHN'ers
must have found its echo in the lives
of many of Christ's poor whom they
helped during this season. Gifts, food,
and clothing were collected and dis-
tributed to institutions and needy fam-
ilies. Their Christmas preparations
took on new meaning when they thought
of the happiness their efforts would
bring into the lives of those less for-
tunate than they.
On December sixteenth, as school
closed, each Academy girl promised
that she would spend the remaining
time- before Christmas in union with

Just as our thoughts turned to
Christmas and gifts, the Mothers Aux-
iliary had in our school gumnasium
the once never heard of, but now fa-
mous, "Star Shoppe". Within two days
our everyday gym was transformed in-
to a festive, glamourous display of
everything one could desire for a dif-
ferent or unusual Christmas gift. A-
side from the gift displays our thought-
ful mothers arranged a fun and frolic
shop for the small fry. They also had
the foresight to prepare a booth called
"Under the Christmas tree". This,
too,was very popular with the younger
members of our group who were able
to purchase pretty and practical gifts
with their hoarded nickles and dimes.
The gaily wrapped packages were
priced within their Christmas budget
and there was fun for all in opening
One of our prettiest booths was
apt ly named "Christmas Glamor".
This table had an eye-catching display
of Christmas greens beautifully ar-
ranged by our mothers. I'm quite sure
all our homes were never more gaily
decorated, judging by the line ofgirls
waiting to purchase those lovely

able Christmas dolls and toys to de-

and creating original ideas in fabric.
A clever piece of work was the cute
"AHN" change purses in the s.chool
colors. Even prospective high school
students purchased these to show their
friends that someday they too would be
at Holy Names. We are proud to say
that some of the students were able to
contribute some of their handiwork
and we were delighted to learn that our
efforts lwhich, b y t he way, were lav-
ishly decorated match boxesi were in
great demand by the public.
The "religious booth" had a beau-
tiful assortment of very attractive
merchandise. We know for sure that
it was appreciated because it was
noticed that a great number of girls
had new rosaries and shiny new medals
and chains that spoke for themselves.
We must not forget to mention the
mouth watering cake and candy booth
which was certainly popular with us
ev e r - hung ry school girls. "I just
couldn't resist it", was the cry when
we walked into our homes with the de-
licious cakes we brought for dessert.
To add to all this, there was a cof-
fee shop which seemed to have a pop-
ular appeal to both the weary workers
and the eager people who came to ad-
mire and purchase goods in the shop.
Yes, the "Star Shoppe" was cer-
tainlyamost successful adventure and
a very substantial profit was made.

Talent Scouts Invited
By Mary Ellen Rancourt
'Twas the week before Christmas
and in the A.H.N. gym, the kiddies were
romping with vigor and vim. The Sen-
iors' little guests were enjoying them-
s e lv e s wholeheartedly. To some,
December 17, 1955, was just another
day,but to those who had the honor of
witnessing this Christmas party, it
was aday tobe long-remembered, one
that ended too soon.
Ifa talent-scout had ventured into
the hall and sighted the spectacular
demonstration of showmanship, the
world would have been given dozens of
bright new stars. The first to have
her name in lights would be Peggy Ca-
vanaugh with her rendition of Kay
Star's version of "Are My Ears on
Straight". Needless to say, the Junior's
"The Carol of the Drums" would have
merited a contract for them. We all
agree that if the talent-scout saw the
skit, "Jeremy and Lucy," acted by Lo-
retta Moore, Joanne Salamida and Ma-
rianne Taffe, he would have put them
on a train for Hollywood. Contributing
her talent, Peggy Kearns gave a beau-
tiful recitation of the "Night Before
Christmas", meriting one hundred per
cent. Last, but by no means least, we
must present orchids to the Freshmen.
If you really want entertainment par
excellence go to Connie Jaczynski with
her accordion, to Maureen Fox with
her alto sax and "Harlem Nocturne",
or to Freshman A with their singing
of "The Twelve Days of Christmas."
One act that stole the show was the
"M.C.-ing"by Nancy Scambia. Doubt-
les s, that scout roaming the halls would
have given this charming Senior a con-
tract all wrapped up in tinsel.
Long after the last crumb of cook-
ie, sip of soda and bite of candy had
disappeared, gaiety still lingered in the
hearts of our little guests. In another
week Santa Claus would be coming
down the chimneys to fill their stock-
ings. Meanwhile , their mommies must
have had a hard time making them snug
in their wee little beds as visions of
sugar plums danced in their heads.
Charity Lives At A.H.N
By Pat Schmitz
There are many annual
charity drives to which
people give through habit.
We at A.H.N., however,
have learned to see the
far - reaching and long-
enduring benefits of such
This true spirit of giv-
ing was evident at A.H.N.
this Christmas time when
through the generosity of
the high school girls the
lives of many people were
made brighter and happier
at this joyous season.
Two charitable organ-
izations , the Ann Lee
Home and the Little Sis-
ters of the Poor once
more called on the girls
to do what they could. And
once more the girls re-
bringing various types of
medicine to aid the Sisters
in their wonderful work
and various personalized
gifts to the old people at
the Ann Lee Home to en-
sure their remembrance.
This year, however,
two new groups, St. Ann's
Institute and the Junior
Chamber of Commerce,
who had heard of the A.H.
N. spirit, asked the aid of
the girls. Realizing that
the girls atSt. Ann's were
mostly their own age, A.
H.N.'ers were enthusias-
tic about giving individu-
ally wrapped gifts to other
less fortunate teenagers.
Toys were the specialneed
of the J.C.C. and toys they
received in a large quan-
tity from A.H.N.
This charitable spirit
not only made the lives of
these people happier at
Christmas,but also added
to the joy felt on Christ-
mas morning by all those
who had given, for they had
given to people who might
otherwise have been for-
go tten and Cfod surely
blessed their efforts on
Christ Kept In Christmas
By Carol Smania
In spite of frost-tipped
no S e S , the carolers
hit those highest notes
while eyes filled with
tears. Listeners from
floor uponfloor crowded
in front of every window
of the veterans' hospital,
looking down upon the
upturned faces,who sang
"Merry Christmas" and
"Happy B i r thd ay" to
Christ. All repeated the
words that were said by
each beat from their
heartsg hundreds felt that
same "Christmas Spir-
it." Eyes of doctors and
patients reflected the
hidd en joys of Christ-
mas, as groups of A.H.
N'ers paraded through
halls. From room to
room the familiar
phrase could be heard .
. . "and may all your
Christmases be white",
as a tear fell to many
cheeks and seemed to
freeze while more came
to its rescue.

This is only one of
the many Christmas
scenes with the carolers
of A.H.N. However, one of
the most familiar would
be a group of singer s
standing under a bright
lamp while snow flakes
caressed each note. This
merry scene was por-
trayed by the Juniors and
Seniors. Two days be-
fore the great celebra-
tion, cars seemed to
s low -up before they
came to the corners of
Madison Ave. and Robin
St. Heads turned and
heard the notes echoing
from the crib . . . "Oh,

Yes, caroling is por-
trayed in many different
ways. To some, it's a
beautiful way of singing
"Happy Birthday" to the
King ofKings. To others
it's away of offering and
showing the "spirit of
Christmas." Yet, to all,
the joy brings tears of
happiness and the heart
becomes warm enough to
melt frozen noses!
We Take Part In A Fairy Tale
By Rosemary Cummins
Our Holly Ball, on Dec emb er
twenty-ninth, was a living fairy tale.
Each of us felt fand lookedl like a
modern-day Cinderella. Anyone igno-
rant of our hours of preparationwould
have thought that our transformation
was the work of a fairy godmother. At
the appointed hour, our respective
pumpkins rolled up, and out stepped
the Prince Charmings of our choice.
Then, off to the Ball!
The night was beautiful, but slip-
pery. The horses, fHorsepower, that

thrones awaited Her Majesty, the

mood of the music and dancing,which

FUShlOl'lS On Pufade By Frances Saunders
Not much excuse is necessary to send a teenage girl delving into her overbur-
dened closet and to have her emerge as a worthy competitor for the North Star.
When an event such as a Christmas formal presents itself no expense is spared, as
father will bitterly agree, no strategy is overlooked in mass-producingbelles for the
The perennial fear of sell-encounter encouraged preventative measures. Girls
patronized the most isolated shops, and conceived patterns to perplex the best dress-
makers, in order to avoid duplication.
Though layers of net still prevailed in popularity, tints of tafetta and various
velvets embellished the crowded dance floor.
The ballroom itself was fittingly bedecked for the occasion. Two silvered trees
bestowed their brilliance on the festivities, while portentous wreaths winked vainly
at their image in the outsize
mirrors. Crystalline stars
hung silently above the heads
of the dancing couples.
One factor was in accor-
dance with preceding years,
however. As far as the eye
could see, young men, ap-
parently oblivious to the
symmetrical pattern they
formed, sported the tradi-

Nightmares Do Encl
by Mary Alice Conners
The last few days before the January exams were
characteristically the most hectic and frantic days of
the year, The freshmen wandered blissfully down the
halls, apparentlyunaware ofthe approaching tests. The
sophomores, a year wiser, studied theorems with a "do-
or-die" air, while the juniors muttered French verbs,
Latin rules, and recited Biology definitions. The not-
so-jaunty seniors worried about such things as National
As the dread exam week disappeared, faces gradual-
ly became more cheerful. When Wednesday afternoon

of nightmares by the enchantment of fantasy.

The Sophomore room did look very strange. Desks
were arranged along the walls and there were several
large mysterious boxes.
The story was this: Loretta Moore, friend of A.H.N.
since first grade, would be moving to Georgia in a few
weeks. Since we of Sophomore B wanted to give Lor-
etta something to remember us by, we decided on a
surprise party to include the usual party food, singing,
a going-away gift, and a farewell speech that brought
tears to everyone's eyes.
The sentiments of all were expressed by the fare-
well song - "Good-bye Loretta, we'l1 never forget you,"

We Conquer In Christ
by Judy Runclel and Mary Glavin
Followers of Cicero's merry ad-
ventures turned naturally to the
thought, "O Tempora, O Mores ! ",while
students of English II could be heard to
mutter "Great Caesar's Ghost! ". For
those of us with an eye toward "la
belle francais" it was "la jour de
judgement", but the universal language
of emotions best expressed the
thoughts of A.H.N.ers - it was report
Teachers warned that the most dif-
ficult part ofthe year was yet to come,
and that a few turned- over leaves would
benefit many of us on the long up-hill
climb. Motivated by those ominous
warnings and the equally ominous notes
on their report cards, faces of most
A.H.N.'ers took on an eager and intent
appearance. Serious countenances be-
trayed serious thoughts, and serious
thoughts took a turn for the positive
when they led to resolutions. Homes
were silent when the telephones
ceased to jingle, and studious heads
bent over their books in an effort to
start their journey up the hill.
Although it appeared that school
workwas our main concern, we admit
that it was something higher, even more
meaningful that directed our resolve.
Carefree footsteps now made their way
with new determination to the chapel
where the Blessed Sacrement was
exposed. Forty Hours Devotion, visits
to Divine Wisdom, gave added impetus
to the good resolves of A.H.N.'ers.
With an added spiritual fitness we were
ready to undertake the journey to suc-
cess, to capture the crown of victory.
No, that long up-hill climb is not
made alone. Cries like "Great Caesar's
Ghost" fade away as inner strength is
instilled into hearts by the Divine
Teacher, the center of life at A.H.N.
Ominous warnings and equally
ominous marks may be given, but
their effect is temporary. Our souls
seek and find deeper, more lasting
inspiration from Jesus, our Model.
Gur love for Him is tested by the new
term. Accepting our challenge, we
now naturally turn our thoughts to

Sophomores Plan Successful Assemblies
by Carolyn Suarez and Ann Manning
The January assembly, presented
by Sophomore A, was very unusual.
The Sophomores invited a representa-
tive of Stromberg Carlson to give us
the history of phonographs and re-
cordings. This talkwas highlighted by
examples of musical recordings from
the honkey-tonk of the 1920's to mod-
ern "hi-fi" and stereophonic sound.
We especially enjoyed the stereo-
phonic music which gives the illusion
that the orchestra is in the room. Our
many questions about the cost and
availability of records and recording
equipment were then answered.
While Sophomore A's assembly
enriched our knowledge of sound re-
cordings, Sophomore B's program
centered around our reading LQ. The
idea was a "Name the Book and Au-
thor" contest, the place was the audi-
torium and the time was February,
"Catholic Press Month."
Since our school library is always
a busy place, we Wanted a Catholic
Press assembly in which the girls
could participate. lt was run accord-
ing to this plan. Skits based on eight
popular high school books were writ-
ten by the Sophomores. Every mem-
ber took part in the production of these
skits. On the programs were blanks
for the titles and authors of the books
selected. Each girl was to fill in the
blanks if she could.
Nervous Sophomores took their
places on stage and gave original in-
terpretations ofthe scenes. Since the
stage was without props, imagination
played an important role in our as-
sembly. Muffed lines were covered
up by hurried ad-libs which the audi-
ence easily recognized, as such. But
the actors valiantly carried on and de-
livered the clues to the books' identi-
Atthe end of the scenes Margaret
Ringwood read the correct answers.
Audrey Kenny, an avid literature fan,
had all the titles and authors correct.
Her prize was a beautiful Holy Names
bracelet. Congratulations Audrey!

Long John And Crew Give A Party
Who am 1? Why, lam a book,
namely, WOMAN WRAPPED IN SI-
LENCE written by John Lynch.
Freshmen A gave a farewell party
for Miss Dollard, their semester Eng-
lish teacher, on January 3lst. Since I
was the gift they gave Miss Dollard
and, therefore, at the party, I have
been asked to relate the happenings to
you. I hope you will excuse me if I
make any minor mistakes in the de-
tails, forl was so wrapped up in paper
and ribbon that I had some trouble in
seeing all. Well, here goes!
The classroom was beautifully ar-
ranged and decorated. The desks were
turned on an angle towards the center,
with Miss Dollard's desk the center of
attraction. From alarge red heart on
the bulletin board floated red and white
streamers which carried such greet-
ings as success, luck, and happiness.
On the front blackboard in large red
and white chalk letters was printed
"Good luck from Long John and the
crew." To Miss Dollard, this was hum-
by Maureen Fox
orous, but to the class it signified their
enjoyment of TREASURE ISLAND as
presented by Miss Dollard.
Now, if you don't mind, 1'd like to
tell you of my part in this tribute. I
was taken from my place on top of the
cupboard and presented to Miss Dol-
lard. After I was sufficiently "oh-ed
and ah-ed" over, I had my picture tak-
en with Miss Dollard. T hen I was
placed on a desk so that each of the
girls could sign me .
And now the best part-food! Oh,
it looked so good that I wished I were
human. On Miss Dollard's desk was
a large heart-shaped white cake in-
scribed with "Miss Dollard" in red
icing. Baskets of candy, cups of
"cake", and ice cream were on each
After seeing all of this, I have one
word of advice: Become an English
teacher, or rather an efficient, suc-
cessful Englishteacher like Miss Dol-
A Day In The Kitchen
On February 25, 1956 the Fresh-
man B class inaugurated a plan for a
luncheon to be given on March 1, with
the proceeds going to the Bishops'Re-
lief Fu nd. The girls undertook this
project with a zeal which was sure to
make it a great success. Under the
competent direction of Sis t e r M.
Charles Bernard, and Mary Ellen Ran-
court, class president, the freshmen
arranged the necessary committees.
Posters made by Carla Lewis were
placed on the bulletin boards in order
to publicize our sale.
At last the big day was at hand and
the Sisters in the cafeteria surrender-
ed their responsibilities to us. We
by Patricia Ott
happily arranged the foodstuffs into
attractive displays and then returned
to our classrooms until the lunch bells
rang. Then it was time to take our
assignedplaces in the cafeteria. Some
of the girls told of the quality of their
merchandise and sold it, while others
took up their posts at the dishwashers.
When the sale was over, the pro-
ceeds were counted and it was an-
nounced to the class that we exceeded
We thank the other classes for their
kind cooperation in helping us make
our luncheon such a wonderful suc-
Father Edgar Speaks
"Scripta manent! " You have all heard of the naive student nurse who
studies all night after being informed she was to have a blood test the
next day. Well, in order that none of you will burn mid-night oil over
the Latin maxim "scripta manent," it simply means "writings remain."
There is much wisdom packed into those two words. In general it
sounds a warning, it says, be careful what you write. In other words,
if you put anything in writing, be sure it is worthwhile. One of my grade
school teachers still possesses an examination of mine which I regret
having written. To the question, "What has the government done for the
Indians?" I answered: "The government has put them in reservoirs."
Then there was the time I defined "yokel" as part of an egg.
So you see what I mean! In formulating this briefmessage,there-
fore, I would like to make it worthwhile. It would please me to think my
words will be just as true and profitable twenty years from now as they
Inaword,my message is this: No young lady of our Academy will be
successful in life unless she is willing to work hard and sacrifice much.
Success in any venture depends upon backbone, not Wishbone. And none
of us will be howling successes by simply howling. A young lady is truly
blessed if she has learned early in life that sacrifice is part and parcel
of her christian heritage. If one lacks this spirit of self-denial, there
is little reason to believe that she will ever meet with much spiritual,
material or social success.
On the other hand, what rich contributions for God and Country can
we envision coming from those of our graduates who have disciplined
their lives by hard work and sacrifice.
Cardinal Gibbons, a great American and spiritual leader, used to tell
young people that the higher men climb, the longer their working day.
And any young man with a streak of idleness in him may better make up
his mind at the beginning that mediocracy will be his lot. Without im-
mence, sustained effort he will not climb high. And even though fortune
or chance were to lift him high, he would not stay there. For to keep at
the top is harder almost than to get there. Cardinal Gibbons concluded:
THERE ARE NO OFFICE HOURS FOR LEADERS!
So much has been given to you young ladies of the Academy of the
Holy Names. Truly heroic sacrifices have been poured into your train-
ing by your parents that you might grow strong in grace and wisdom and
understanding. In return, there is so much that you can give to a world
that thirsts for your Christlike way of life. Never forget that every great
and true and worthy enterprise springs from the soul. If, then, you stand
worthy in the sight of God, certainly you can hope for rich achievements
in your endeavors for mankind. None of your undertakings or projects,
however hidden from the eyes of others and unpraised by men - none of
these are unimportant in God's sight. Yes, yo u are potentially truly great
women. All that stands between you and success is sacrifice.
