Meet Your Stuff by France s Saunder s Behind each and every prosperous production lies the careful work of the individual. The polished edition of JM rolls off the presses turnedby the well- oiled parts of the JM staff, combining their efforts like the proverbial clock- work. Harmonybreeds unityg and unity in turn ensures organization - both in endeavor and in results. The success- fulness of our staff is evident to you by now, but their names may not be. Mary Turner, as editor -in - chief, cracks a feathered whip over the duty- bowedheads of her co-workers, as she keeps awatchful eye on all proceedings. The co-editors, Mary Hagen, Margie Halpin, Clare Rooney and Judy Rundel are the voices ofconscience, reminding all of the ominously approaching dead- line, then sifting and sorting the ma- terial with which they are deluged eventually. Famous -personalities and world- shaking events are placed under the jurisdiction of the Special Feature edi- tors: Mary Murray and Mary Ann Britt. Any event concerning the school as a whole, is of special interest to these two, for it is up to them to cover such events. The scope of available color may be limited, but the capability of our art editors is not. Dottie Henderer and KarylFredricks have taken full charge of decorating JM with remembrances of our high school year. Any operation would be nothing with- out finances, and imagine the state of our financial affairs without Mary Gla- vin and Barbara Glavin. The wolf would have been howling at our door -steps were it not for their faithful "bill-col- lecting." And, of course, what would JM be without photographs to hold fast frag- ments of our life? Margaret Ringwood has done her job well as photography editor, selecting the snapshots most indicative of our school days. This is the staff. They have done their best, and have come up with a result well worth the time they put into it. 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 with You. 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 glory. 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. We Three 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 I stopped. 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. President "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 the picture. 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 had come. 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 never forget." LEFT T O RIGHT: Patricia Iarossi,Jane Barrett, Phyl lis Anastasi, Margaret Fennell, Regina Tierney and Patricia Sabatino. Surprises Overflow by Carolyn Suarez "Something new has been added" --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 lunches! 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 twenty-second, 1955. 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- sentials. 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 vehicle" and returned to school like Star Eyes, with "stars in their eyes". SPECIAL fag? V ,4 in foreign lands. This Meet The People Clubs Begin Activities Who Know Attention at October's assembly proved no dif- ficulty, for the Seniors had prepared a program de- signed to answer any ques - tion regarding vocational problems we w i s he d to submit to their competent guest speakers. Mother M. Ellen Rose, Mistress of Novices at our Rome novitiate, offered adv i c e which was both practical and inspiration- al. Our inquiries concern- ing college life were ably handle d by Sister Mary Kevin,member ofthe fac- ulty of the College of St. Rose School of Nursing. Mrs. Bartlett, of the per- sonnel department of the New York Telephone Com- pany, had many helpful hints regarding the rela- tionship between our pre- sent training and a future business career. Under the direction of Karen Rickard, the panel successfully helped us plan for the future. by Mary Cvlavin Two of the most active clubs at A.H.N. are "Le Cercle des Etoiles and the Paladin Club, both un- der the supervision of Sister Evangeline Marie. "Le Cercle des Etoiles" meets twice a month for an enjoyable time with games, skits, and songs, all presented in French. Membership in the French Club is limited to the honor students of the French II and III classes. The officers elected for the pre- sent year are: Frances Saunders, President: Judy Rundel,Vice-Presidentg Molly McGinty,Secretary. Each meeting is full of surprises which challenge our knowledge of France as well as of French. The close of each meeting is marked b the award of Y 'le prix de presence" and the singing of the tradi- tional "Bonsoir Mes Amis." Our other Tuesday af- ternoon group,the Pala- din Club, is a mission club consisting of the honor members of the Catholic Students' Mis- sion Crusade. This club meets on alternate Tuesdays to discuss and increase its knowledge of the work of the Catho- lic Church at home and year some of the Mission Leaders from various classes visited Roches- ter for the Mission Cin- erama where they ob- tained information which was passed along to the members of the Paladin Club. These projects are typical of the beneficial and enjoyable work done by the members of these active groups under the guidance of their capable leaders. Panelists submit to questioning: Mrs. P. Bartlett, Mother M. Ellen Rose, S.NJ.M., Mistress of Novices, and Sister Mary Kevin, S,S.J., prepare to answer Karen Rickard and her assistants. 14 25 - ., SSW Ad Jesum Per Mariom by Mary Theresa Higgins The Living Rosary Soduliiy lnifioies Unit System Honors Mary Prayer in action, the Living Rosary is a moving profession of love. Our Living Rosary was under the direction of co-chair- men Clare Rooney and Kathy Doyle. By their in- genuity and ability to ob-I tain the co-operation of the entire student body, the processionwas a suc- cess. The swelling voices of the participants raised in unisant prayer could not fail to please the ears of God. The beauty of the spectacle was seen in the s inc e r ity of all those present, the spectators as well as the girls who Walked in silence down Robin Street, through the school gates to the lower c ampu s , to offer them- selves to Mary at her grotto. The Seniors, who walked in cross-for- mation carrying lamps signifying the Light of the World, were followed by the underclassmen who formed decades. Each girl representing a bead carried a rose which was placed uponthe altar dur- ing the hymn sung at the the completion of each decade This demonstra- tion of love closed with Benediction celebrated by F athe r Edgar . Holden. Such an example of Cath- olic Action is a glowing symbol of the light of faith that cannot be quenched by the darkness of man's ignorance. 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- sociation-- Prefect, MarciaRappgVice-Pre- 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 I5 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 following this formula of formulae? 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 Volley Ball Rei by Joyce "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. ln the Freshman game between the "Humming Birds" and "Bee-Jets", the latter won and then challenged the Jun- ior Jumpers. But the upperclassmen proved their worth and clinched the victory. The Yellow Jackets and Bobby Sockers, our two Sophomore teams, fought a close battle with the Yellow Jackets winning the game. Then the victorious Sophs played the Junior Jumpers and through team co-ordina- tion and determined spirit went on to claim victory. Finally the Yellow Jackets played the Seniors, and after a give-and -take battle, they claimed the victor's crown giving the Sophomores aperfect ending to a glorious round of games. With hearty congratulations the en- tire studentbody bowed to the victors, "The Littlest Angel". Meanwhile the Seniors were given the privileges of seeing the novices. After the movies, talent from both schools was exhibited, two puppet shows in French were put on by the Rome girls, and the Albany students contributed several musical selections, both solo and choral sing- ing. By this time we were ready to eat, andthe hot dogs, soda, cup-cakes, and assorted candies were really delici- ous. But time was running out on us, and after bidding good-bye to the Ro- mans, we boarded the buses for home. We arrived in Albany, exhausted but happy, full of pleasing memories of a wonderful day. gns Supreme Galante rejoicing with them in their hard-won victory. And all, whether among the winners or defeated, unite in praise of their school, ". . . We all agree, all hail to thee".

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- formance. 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- gettable, soul-enriching. A Door Opens to Juniors by Maureen Wydrakowski This year's array of events be- ganwhen the "under upper classmen", the Juniors, came into their own on the first of November, 1955. Amid dwarfs and flowers they received their cherished keys. The unique theme, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", held its own under Helen Healy and Pat Kearney, co- 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 Pat Kearney, each favored us with their soprano voices rendering the tunes, "Italian Street Song" and "One Little Candle". A newcomer to the Junior Class, Lorraine Harding, gave her 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", engraved upon the beloved keys, is there to remind us of the end we are all striving to attain, to "always be faithful". As the candles burned low and the hands on the clock neared nine, Jun- iors and Seniors alike made their way homeward. Juniors, proudly display- ing their pink carnation key corsages, the symbol of their acceptance in the realm of upper classmen, now entered another door to exciting wonderful e- vents in the Academy.

Wagon Wheel Whirl -c . a ll ' f' me-:fi 5, E by Rosemary Cummins "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- if Lorraine Harding, Edward Madigan, Barry Manning, Patty Fisher, Mary Margaret Riccardi and William Devane take time out to pose fora picture while others take a pause that refreshes at Wagon Wheel Inn. ,se"' il 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 girl. Ring Symbolizes Our Pledge Anne Sheila Bayly joyfully receives her ring while Father Edgar Holden, O.F. M., Conv., assisted by Marcia Rapp and Mary Alice Conners, gives his bless- ing. by Maureen Wydrakowski 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 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 own good. "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. Sodality Receives New Members W The thirteenth of De- cember was an important date for many eager so- dalists. ln an impressive ceremony the candidates for the Sodalityk of Our Lady: Maur e e n Colan- gione, Margaret Christ- off, Linda Cox, Carol De Marco, Mary Rose Hen- zel, Louise Krasevic, Helen Matthews, Susan Phillips, Patricia Rooney, Judy Rundel, Carol Sman- ia, and Rosemary Schnurr, were received into the Sodality by Father Edgar Holden, O.F.M. Conv. The sponsors for the new sodalists were: Mary Anne Britt, Mary Alice Conners, Patricia Fisher, Mary Glavin, by Helen Matthews Lillian Goe r g e n, Mary Theresa Higgins, Maureen Maloy, Mary Beth Nolan, Sandra .No- wak, Mary Margaret Ric- c a r di, - Mary Turner, Patricia Vogel. ' At the reception in the chapel Mary Pat Lyons' read the names 'of the aspirants while Father presented them with the, symbolic medals of the Sodality. , After the ceremony each new Sodalist left chapel with joy and grati- tude for her privilege of being called to a life de- voted to Mary, her Mother. But she knew that now she must live up to her new duties, and so t with a determined spirit, she returned to class ready to promote the greater glory of God through the accomplish- ment of each daily duty. One of the first actions the new Sodalists had to offer to Jesus through Mary was a party held in their honor. The keynote of this little surprise get- together was simplicity. Cokes, cookies, potato chips , chatter, song, laughter, all helped happy hearts share their joy with their classmates. But this is only one more example of the thrill of life with Jesus and Mary at A.H.N. 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 of Peace. 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 Christ. Finally, at Christmas Mass, Christ was welcomed into joyful and grateful hearts as the long awaited Guest for Whom all these preparations had been lovingly made. Because of their gen- erosity Christ in turn gave Himself to His children, on this the Birthday of a King. Stars Light, Stars Bright, Bring Success To Us One Night by Mary Lib Chelius 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 these surprises. 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 greens. There was also a display of ador- able Christmas dolls and toys to de- light the heart of any believer in Santa Claus. Thatjolly gent would have been verymuch surprised to see this booth of toys, behind which stood the moth- erly-looking "elves" who handled the booth. The Star Shoppe also featured many examples of the fine needle work and artwork which, we know, must have taken weeks of careful preparation. Our students were amazed to discover the hidden talent possessed by our ii be ..,,, - - , their teachers . "ma's" for, making beautiful aprons 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. We all enjoyed the "Star Shoppe" but most of all we were proud of our ta- lented mothers who worked so hard and tirelessly to help us and our school. , Something New Has Been Added Thanks Are Due by Margaret Chrisioff "Good morning,girls." The voice of Sister Su- perior came from the smallbox mounted on the wall. At last our new public address system was in opera- tion. Preparation for this event had been going on for some time. For quite a few days ladders and stools of various kinds were seen around the school. The noise of the electric drill even interrupted several classes,to the delight of the girls and the dismay of by Mrs. William A. Glavln For the first time in ten years we, The Moth- ers' Auxiliary of the A- c ad emy of the Holy Names , took our courage in our hands and decided to have a Christmas Fair, to be called the Star Shoppe. It worked. It w a s a n overwhelming This public address sy s tem , donated by the Mothers' Auxiliary, was immediately put to good use. .lust before Christ- mas the Senior Class pre- s e n t e d a Nativity play, "No R oom at the Inn". The whole school was able to listen to this entertain- ment without the incon- venience of an assembly. Shortly after the beginning of the New Year, Sister Anna of Mary presented a tape recording of the life ofMother Mary Rose, the foundress and first super- ior of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. Right up to the- pre- senttime the public add- ress system has saved time and eliminated the inc onvenience of sending pupils to various classes to check such things as the First Saturday at- tendance. v We have also re- ceived a gift of a press camera. This camera has already been used to take pictures of various events and moments to be remembered for the yearly paper as well as for distribution among the girls. It has already proved its worth, as you can see by glancing through these pages. So watch out, Times -Union, for some up and coming competition. 24 success. Everyone co- operated - from the Mothers who worked so hard to make it outstand- ing and original - to the students and friends who bought our wares -and to the Sisters who as- sisted us in a hundred different ways. So to all who helped so graciously we owe our sincere thanks for making our project so w onderful and so profitable. From noon 'tilnine on Decem- ber the ninth we made over three thousand dol- lars. Nice going every- body! Let's do it again. 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 charities. 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- sponded wholeheartedly, 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. 25 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 His Birthday. 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. 'rms' rf-f ' 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- 26 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, come, letus adore Him", the carolers sang as they imagined the angels themselves sang overthe Infant's manger. 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 is,l had a bit of trouble pulling the coach, but with careful handling they gotus to the Palace safely. We made and luxurious drapes. In one corner, catching our eye immediately, stood a shining silver Christmas tree. The focal point of the entire setting was the far end, where the silver-draped thrones awaited Her Majesty, the Queen. We were soon caught up in the mood of the music and dancing,which lasted for what seemed like minutes but must have been hours. Then a blare of trumpets heralded the great announcement. Her Majesty, Pat Vo- gel,was called forward to receive her crown. Then, her Honor Belles were called: Ann Sheila Bayly and Marilyn OU-1' WHY 1110113 the d'S inglli d Te' Jagareski, Seniors, and finally the Ceiving line, and den there we Holly Belles - Juniors, Mary Glavin were, sta ' gi e ofdyhe huge, and Sandra Nowakg Sophomores, Leni dazzlin a o , id sco s Plager and Joan Benson, and Fresh- happ a 3' ' 're , St men, Patricia Ott and Rosalie Car- a 1' 0? ft walls dona.

Afte r b eing crowned by Rosemary Cummins, S e ni o r Class President, Queen Pat came down into the waiting arms of her Prince to lead the Royal Dance. At midnight, the legendary trans- formation did not take place, and we went on to various parties, vowing never to forget the night we were part of a fairy tale. Punch Parties And Receiving Line What's the biggest night of the year ? About this the r e' s not much dispute. Why the night of the Holly Ball, of course! But what comes before the Holly Ball? The parties and open houses, naturally! Pat Vogel, our pretty Holly Queen, played hostess to the entire Senior Class at her home,prior to the dance. Pat added to the delight- fulness of her party by having an accordion player. There were other scenes of pleasant hours By Bonnie Maguire and pre -Holly Ball enter- tainment. T he Junior Class were the guests of Bonnie Maguire at a punch party ather home. At the homes of Kay Har- rison, aSenior, and Pat- ricia Schmitz, a Fresh- man, were seen small groups of guests before the dance. That evening also found Meg Britt and Linda Miller, hostesses at small dinner parties at their homes. These enjoyable hours were a prelude to many more pleasant ones at the Holly Ball itself. Upon arrival at the ballroom of the Ten Eyck, the girls and their es- corts were greeted with the cheery smiles and "howdo you do's"of those in the receiving line. This , of course, was composed of the chaper- ones who were the Messrs. and Mesdames W. Glavin, P. larossi, F. Nowak, R. Kinley, G. Chelius, and R. Reilley. This proved to be but the beginning of a wonderful and memorable evening. A charming group enjoy music and laughter at Patricia Voge1's party. Helen Maffeo, Patricia Sabatino, Maureen Mahon and Maureen Wydrakowski relax to Peter Emma's accordion playing. 28 Queen Of The Ball By Rhea Picotte The Holly Ball is an event to which every A.H.N. girl looks forward. One of the highlights of the evening is the Coronation of Holly Queen and Holly Belles. The Queenis crowned by the Senior class President. She then crowns the Belles. More important though, the Queen has the privilege of crowning Our Blessed Mother, who guides us through- out the year. It is appropriate that we honor Mary on this occasion for we are alljoyous after celebrating the birthday of Christ, her Son. Mary plays a big part in the life of , . fy' 2 ' every Holy Names girl, for she is the ,gy g ig vakfl ,- model of our everyday life and is in- 9? C X , Q cluded in each of our activities. 'ihg , 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 Holly Ball. 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- tional tux. The scene assumed the appearance of a royal ball with the presence of the glit- tering tiaras atop many a girl's head. But all the glis- tening gems, the tinseled trees, and the blinking wreaths glimmered feebly fifglg when compared to the glow in H the eyes of each happy young 29 girl on the arm of her fa- vorite beau 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 Honor Society. As the dread exam week disappeared, faces gradual- ly became more cheerful. When Wednesday afternoon came and the examinations were almost finished, the corridors echoed with such remarks as, "Am I glad that test is done!." But all was forgotten on Thursday when "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" brightened a week of nightmares by the enchantment of fantasy. Secrets Are Revealed by Marianne Tatfe On the day ending midyear exams girls from various classes were heard saying, "Wonder where Sophomore B is?" Since our classroom doors were closed, no one dared enter, 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," French Club Celebrates The theme of the annu- al Christmas Party of "Le Cercle des Etoiles" held January 4th was "Come, follow the Magi." The gayly decorated cafeteria was the scene of our fes- tivities. After aword ofvvelcorne by the President, Frances Saunders, to Mother Pro- by Ann Sheila Bayly vincial, Sister Francis Henry, Sister Mary Honor- ina and Sister Frances Marie, our honored guests , the ThreeKings , portrayed by the Juniors, arrived in appropriate array. The Seniors then spoke for the Three Wise Men as they offered their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to 30 the Christ Child. Many happy songs were sung and a gift was presented to Sister Evangeline , our de - voted "professeur de fran- cais," as a small token of our appreciation. Then the big moment arrived. The cake was cut, and as is thetradition in France, Whoever received the piece containing the bean be- came king and chose his queen to reign with him over the celebration. "His royal highness," Connie Curnin,and"HermajestyJ' Mary Theresa Higgins, were the honored two. All of us enjoyed delightful re- freshments and cherish the little china statue of the Infant of Prague given as a favor. We left the party greet- ing each other with our newly-learnedvvish: "Bon- ne et heureuse annee and le paradis a la fin de vos jours ! -ff-fs HH.-as 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 card day. 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 "Veni, vidi, vici, with the Grace of God." Soclalify Enriches Our Lives by Jeanne Boylan The scene is a Sep- tember afternoon, 1955, and the Sophomore Class is at attention. Sister Francis Henry, the mod- erator of our main So- dality, has just announced that again this year Sophomores who are to' enter the So- dality in May will pre- pare themselves by membership in the Jun- ior Sodality. After many ques- tions had been asked concerning the workings of the Sodality, officers and discussion leaders were elected. To lead them in spiritual work, the girls chose Mary Lib Chelius as Prefect and Jeanne Boylan, Vice-Prefect. Since we planned to use the unit system of the main So- dality, we elected as dis- cussion leaders, Ann Manning, Barbara Glav- in, Genevieve Mead and Marianne Taffe. Every Thursday af- ternoon a meeting is held at which the members have lively discussions about their Sodality duties and personal problems. Each group makes a resolution which is posted on the bulletin board. The members all agree that their mem- bership inthe Junior So- dality has been one of the most enriching ex- periences of the school year. We will reap the rewards for our hard work in May, when we hope to be perpetually consecrated to Mary 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- ties. 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! AFWQ Susan Maron and Frances McCoy discuss a dis- play of books for good reading, 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 desk. 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- ard! 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 our quota. We thank the other classes for their kind cooperation in helping us make our luncheon such a wonderful suc- cess. 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 are today. 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. Fr. Edgar Holden, O.F.M. Conv. St. Anthony-on-Hudson Rensselaer, N.Y. 34 Business Patrons Adair's Liquor Store 617 New Scotland Ave. Albany, N.Y.
