Before we look forward to our life in the new high school, a little wistfully and very gratefully we take a backward glance over the history of our school to see what it is that makes A.H.N. our pride and joy. Sisters M. Mariana and M. Hedwige have graciously opened to our LM. interviewers their treasure of memories. Just seventy-five years ago in a little house on Hamilton Street, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary first started to educate the young people of Albany. Their fame spread so rapidly that in four years it was neces- sary to move to a larger building on the corner of Madison Avenue and Robin Street. This was only a two-story frame structure. But as the list of students grew, so did the building. Soon word of the wonderful training and excellent teaching of the Sisters of the Holy Names had spread, and again it was necessary to enlarge the Academy. That is when we first received our dappled gray -stone building. Of course it was smaller then, just two stories high. This building enclosed our beautiful chapel which was dedi- cated in 1912. As the years went by, former students sent their children to be educated by our Sisters and again A.H.N. had to be enlarged. That was when the brick addition which is now the high school was constructed. Memories of more than expansion of buildings and enrollment were opened to us. Sister Mary Hedwige told of other changes. What is now one of our back parlors was originally the boarders' beehive, and our annex was where the children spent their recess. Since Sister M. Mariana was a resident student she related many of the humorous and thrilling incidents which have left lasting memories with her. Washington Park seemed to be a favorite K ' recreation place for boarders, In the " winter the girls would skate on the Park t If .i Lake or on the rink in the back yard of school. Then in the summer and spring, rowing on the lake was a popular sport. 1881 . ,- uf ,Q . f ',,, ,. f .1 A qy Q.. 5 i fr .rpg ., is E 1.53. .'

The orchard in the back yard laden with delicious apples, peaches, pears, and grapes gave the girls some re- freshment during study and took away their appetities for dinner. Every Friday the Children of Mary made their Act of Consecration after Benediction.. Mass was offered only once a week at school. During the months of October, May, and June and the season of Lent, twenty-five girls were allowed to attend Mass at the Dominican Convent, Sunday nights were special ones for the boarders because Sister Mary Emerentienne of the Music Department would entertain them with her endless store of games and songs, Although Sister M. Mariana feels sad at seeing the high school students leave the present building, she is happy at the wonderful accomplishments of the Sisters of the Holy Names and the residents of Albany since her graduation in 1901. In recent years the number of students has increased unbelieveably. Since Sister M. Mariana's class of only seven graduates we anticipate the graduation of eighty-five girls in 1960. The entire high school consisted of no more than forty students while today we boast our enrollment of over two hundred fifty students. So from these incidents we get an idea of the wonderful growth and success of the Academy of the Holy Names. Let's all remember that the modern school will not be entirely new for it will always hold the sincere friendliness, love, and concern that has made Holy Names the school of which we are proud to be a part, Yes, A,H,N, is to move again. During our meeting with Sister M. Mariana and Sister M. Hedwige they assured us that since their first encounter with A,I-LN, and the Sisters of the Holy Names, they have never felt the absence of sincere friendliness and interest between Sister and student. The Sisters feel that throughout all the exterior changes there has been a constancy in the inner spirit, the heart of the school, that will go on forever. iT lY T1 - W up 1913 H ill -at Q Z 1903 r ,, -f. - ', ,.7..,.g-,. -. .- H ..,....-, - . ,,,, , , 0. . , W? ..-M-, , v.. .4 .- e.. -4 H- I, ' g1..,',, We the Class of '57 Do Bequeath This Heritage An old tradition at AHN and at other schools is a varied collection of delightfully nonsensical sentiments going by the title of "Last Will and Testament." The Class of '57 is to be no exception to this honored cus- tom. But because 1957 is moving year, and our school is deserting the quiet dignity of our famed graystone building, perhaps we can be justified in allowing our "famous last words" to take on a more serious tone. We, the seniors, do have a treasured heritage to pass on to the underclassmen. But it would be more correct to say that each AHNer already possesses that heritage. We only desire to create a fuller realization of it. Our heritage can be considered a vocation. By Virtue of her faith and training, each AHN girl is ex- pected to be a special type of Christian woman - completely Catholic in thought, word and action. AHN teaches us that it is here that our responsibility enters, since it is for us not only to recognize that call but to accept the challenge that it represents. This, then, can be said to constitute the spirit of our Academy - a spirit of Christian refinement. We recognize that it is the universal spirit of the Sisters of the Holy Names and that spirit reflected by us, their students, that constitutes the heritage of AHN. AHN wants to give us a great deal, but nothing can be accomplished without our whole -hearted coopera- tion. Yet even that necessary cooperation will never be reached unless there is, within each of us, a true sense of loyalty to AHN. Once we understand, and then love, the principles, the spirit of the Academy, we will accept our responsibilities gladly. We will find that not only do we as individuals exert a power- ful influence on the character of AHN - we are, to a very great extent, responsible for making it what it is. We must, then, live in such a way as to fulfill our re- sponsibility to enrich the heritage in our possession. When we have accomplished this we will then be pre- pared to enrich the world in which we live.

V We Accept Your Challenge By the Junior Class You, the last Senior Class to graduate from the old Academy, leave us, the Class of 1958, with a far greater responsibility than has ever yet been given to any class in the school. You have entrusted us with the responsibility and privilege of instilling the A.H.N. Spirit into the new high school. For many years the grey stone building opposite the park has been respectfully referred to as "the Acade- my" and the phrase "an A.H.N. girl" has been syn- onymous with the word "1ady". Surely a school which merits this esteem must be more than a mere institute of learning. Composing the school and its spirit are the girls. In the years gone by each girl has had as her outstanding characteristic Christian refinement. That is, she has tried to act, in all that she did, as Jesus or Mary would She followed a set of Christian and Social Principles which directed her life. She realized that her purpose J.

She knew that soon she would be a young Catholic Adult with a great responsibility and always kept that thought as a guide for her behavior. In the Academy there was a friendly atmosphere resulting from a feeling of companionship and friend- ship between the girls and teachers. We see that it is our job to bring this atmosphere of good will from the old school into the new, and to keep the A.H.N. ideal as high as it has been. You have entrusted this heritage to us. We must tell you that we appreciate and love everything you have giv- en us. So much so that we want girls of the future to share it with us. We know that with God's grace and by imitation of your example that we can give that modern new high school the old A.H.N. spirit and keep the phrase "an A.H.N. girl" synonymous with the word "lady".

This news, received with gasps and groans, traveled quickly, and after classes everyone was eagerly talking about Freshman Day. The next day, before we could enter the cafeteria, we had to curtsey to a seemingly endless line of Seniors. We also had to recite a poem acknowledging ourselves as lowly Freshman. All of these activities were only preparations, how- ever, and the long-awaited day finally arrived. Eagerly eighty-seven Freshman trooped into the temporarily quiet halls of A.H.N. Each was equipped with slate, braids, and a shiny apple for her Senior teacher. And so this Frosh Day 1956 began. Morning classes went on as usual, but at twelve o'clock everyone piled into buses and cars for the trip to Thatch- er Park. Upon arrival we found the air was damp and raw, but that did not dampen our spirits. The first thing we did was meet the blood-curdling task of catching ten grasshoppers. Our return trip to A.H.N. was enjoyed as much as the earlier ride except for the fact that it meant the close of a wonderful aftemoon. Thus the event known as Freshman Day became the iirst of a score of many rich memories of our Freshman year. Q Helen Matthews, Carol De Marco, Loretta Young, and Louise Krasevic look on as Karleen Gentile recites her act of submission to Seniors. Kathaleen Higgins, Susan Trahan, Maureen Ma- honey, and Patricia Varden smile, relieved that they have passed senior inspection. We Hove Mei an Author The annual trip to Auriesville, Shrine of the North American Martyrs, was even more important than us- ual. Little did we know, as we went bouncing along over the last lap of our bus trip that an added feature awaited us. After the disappointment of having no Mass, the girls who had fasted were happy to receive Holy Com- munion at least. That is when it all began. Rev. Joseph E. Keams, S. I., author of the catchy articles in 16 the Queen's Work entitled "To digress for a moment on. . ." , delivered an informative and inspirational sermon and then spent some time outside conversing with the girls. We were delighted by his anecdotes of his days teaching high school boys, and impressed by his lively inspiration. The rest of our pilgrimage will be remembered be cause of the cold weather which forced all but the bravest to eat on the bus. The Auriesville trip is an occasion to be remem bered. Lay Apostles Spend Three Days At Notre Dome The time -- 6:00 on August 23. The place -- the railroad station in Albany. The persons -- a group of neatly dressed girls and two Sisters of the Holy Names. The dialogue -- excited conversation about their destination, the seventeenth convention of the Catholic Students Mission Crusade at the University of Notre Dame. This anticipation was satisfied at their arrival at Notre Dame where they were impressed by the campus and the famous "golden dome of Our Lady." After registering and settling luggage, most of the delegates went to bed for a much needed rest while their more energetic companions explored the campus. The Convention officially began on the twenty -fourth with the opening prayer by Father Clifford King, founder of the C.S.M.C. The next two days and nights were spent at discussions in which representatives as well as priests, bishops, and lay people gave many interesting and informative talks about the missions and what they do. In the evening of the twenty -fifth, one of the most impressive events of the convention took place -- the "Liv- ing Rosary." Three thousand delegates formed the rosary reciting the beads and singing songs of praise to Mary un- der the direction of the Xavier University Choir. Two evenings were devoted to entertainment. One night there was a concert by the Xavier University Choir. They sang excerpts from "Oklahoma" and many other well known and loved songs. The other "fun" item was a talent show presented by many of the representatives. A.H.N. delegates Sue Maloy, Peggy Curran, Peggy Kearns, Mary Rita Siciliano, Marianne Taffe, Clare Ricciardi, Margaret Ringwood, Sue Stey, Jeanne Boylan Anne Marie Covatta, Sue Smith, and Pat Ott decided that the convention was most entertaining and inform- ative. They were particularly impressed by the fact that all -7 black and white, religious and lay -- dele- gates ate and worked and played together. The memories of the convention will inspire these girls for a long time to come and will remind them to be zealous lay apostles helping missionaries to extend Christ's kingdom on earth.

Cause of the Missions On September 28, the first assembly of the year was held. Fittingly, the theme of the assembly was Mission, one of the most important duties of our faith. The meeting was conducted by Mary Glavin, senior mission leader. After the introduction of class mission leaders, short talks were given by the girls who had at- tended the C.S.M.C. Convention at Notre Dame. An explanation of the history and emblem of the Crusade followed. Mary Glavin then made a few suggestions on the governing of the Crusade at A.H.N. and introduced Father Edgar who told us of his experiences with mission work. The meeting was closed with the recitation of the Crusade Pledge. 'Those who attended the assembly began to think more b ' ' k.

Or be back-stage when repertoires are made, But your spirit will be always in the wing, To offer love with every note that's playedg Your golden years are noted every one In lyrics from our Lady to her Soni In Memoriam On October 3, 1956, a quiet seriousness fell over the girls as each read the announcement of Sister Mary of the Eucharist's death on the previous day. We all knew that although we had lost an exemplary and devoted teacher on this earth, we had gained a powerful advocate and friend in heaven. We re- membered her gratitude for the least kindness offered to her on earth, and so confidently we prayed for Sister, knowing that she would repay us as she had promised. To write of Sister's virtues and efforts on our behalf presents a challenge that is difficult to meet. Lest we fail in giving a true, complete picture, we shall let Sister's own words mirror her spirit which we all love. MY DEAR MUSIC STUDENTS, On the feast of our Blessed Mother - September 12 - the Holy Name of Mary - just three weeks from the feast of the Little Flower, God gave me a decided warning of what He was about to ask of me. All my life, I have served my God in activity and hard work. I am now to serve Him in sickness. I ask you - each one - to pray for me. And I shall not forget you. I do not intend to be idle when I get to Heaven. I am going to work there - to work for you as I have done here. What I am now going to say you have heard often from me. But, it cannot be said often eough. Love your music and do not give it up. It will-develop in you a strong character and devotion to duty. Once again, when you hear that I have left this earth, please do not forget me in your prayers. And I will repay you when I reach Heaven. God bless you - each one. I confide you to the protection of our Blessed Mother. SISTER MARY OF THE EUCHARIST No, we cannot forget Sister in our prayers. Nor can we be indifferent to her wish that we remain faithful to duty. Those of us who are not music students can catch her true meaning in her urging fidelity from the music students. Assured of Sister's watchful prayers in our behalf, we accept her challenge, to love duty, to serve our school, our neighbors and our God. With Sister's beautiful example before us as proof that such devotion and strength of character will be the foundation of our success and happiness, we can think of no better dedication to the memory of this great soul, than to carry her spirit on in our lives. This too, will be our tribute to Sister Mary Hedwige who died on December 20, 1956. Conscientious devotedness to her responsibilities is one more reminder of the example we are to follow if we would be true to the Holy Names. 18 5 if Ml., Mary Patricia Lyons, Vice-Prefect in 1955-1956 SODALITY OFFICERS: Mary Lib Chelius, Secretaryg Margaret Ringwood, Treasurer, Mary Theresa Higgins, Prefectg Mary Beth Nolan, Vice-Prefect.

STANDING: Mary Alice Conners, Helen Matthews, Margaret I-lalpin, Maureen Maloy, Mary Margaret Riccardi . n Nl In lmifaiion A good beginning spells success. This year we recall the devoted self-sacrifice of the Sodality officers of last year in initiating the unit system into the school. We look to the example of these officers for inspiration. But now we know that we can count on even greater help from Mary Pat Lyons, Vice-Prefect of the class of '56, who died on February 17, 1957. Just as Mary Pat always lived in the service of others, so now we know that she will continue that service to the organization nearest her heart. Her dedication to Mary was evident to all her classmates who recall so fondly her cheerful smile, jovial conversation, interest in others, her loyalty and industry, and her zeal for the work of the Sodality. We know that in Mary Pat we can find the model Sodalist, the ideal A.H.N. girl. With Mary Pat as our inspiration, we continue her work in the So- dality by increasing interest in our unit system. The Sodality officers: Mary Theresa Higgins, Prefectg Mary Beth Nolan, Vice-Prefectg Mary Lib Chelius, Secretaryg and Margaret Ringwood, Treasurer, realize the value of well -planned meetings if the girls are to benefit by them. The four-fold end of the Sodality, devotion to Mary, personal sancti- fication, santification of neighbor and de- ? fense of the Chruch of Jesus Christ, is the foundation for the overall plan of these unit meetings. Unit leaders meet twice a week - on Mondays to choose a subject of discussiong on Wednesdays to share ideas on the topic chosen. The responsibility is then taken over by each Sodalist who realizes that the unit system depends on the enthus- iastic zeal of each member. 19 Albany Is Victorious By Mary Ruth Voifis and Janet Walion Columbus Dayl It was here at last. This was the day that the A.H.N. girls of Albany would play the traditional basketball game at Rome. The Varsity team had been practicing for weeks preceding the game and now they were ready. Every basketball team has its cheerleaders and our was no exception. The girls had worked hard to make their cheers letter perfect. At eight -thirty we all assembled with our lunches and climbed into the waiting busses. Then off we were witha cheer and a song on our way to Rome, and victory. We arrived at eleven -thirty and received a gay welcome. To commemorate Columbus Day the school was appropriately decorated with life buoys and fish nets. Each girl te- ceived a paper fish as a name tag. After renewing old friendships and making new ones, we were shown into the music room where we saw the movie, "So Dear To My Heart", a wonderful story of a boy and his pet lamb. Then it was game time and the cheerleaders from both teams went through their paces. The centers took their positions, and the game began. We scored the first basket and were ahead at the end of the first quarter. With some changes in the lineup and the excitement rising, the second quarter began. Albany scored again but so did Rome. When the half -time whistle blew Albany was out in front. Following a few cheers from both sides the second half began. More changes in the line -up proved beneficial and we gained more points. We were ahead but Rome still had a chance! During the next quarter everyone was on the edge of her seat for this part was decisive. Then the whistle blew and the game was over. The Albany team was victorious. The game ended with a score of 18-12. The Rome team took their defeat with r all the qualities of sportsmen. Then we were served a surprise luncheon, pizza! Everyone loved it. After being shown around the grounds we had a marsh- mellow roast. ,if The time for departuteuwas at hand and after T thanking the girls for a wonderful time we boarded the busses and started for home. Everyone was hap- py as we talked and sang. The end of a wonderful day had come - a day that would last in our high school memories for a long time. 'Y 20 4, Juniors Enferfoined November first was a very special day in the life of every junior. On this day she approached the school in her crisp, white organdy dress, full of enthusiasm and brimming over with anticipation of the events which lay ahead. For she would depart an upperclass- man. In the auditorium she was greeted by her Senior Sister and treated to punch, sandwiches and cookies elegantly displayed in the most beautiful silver and crystal against a background of candlelight and roses. However this was just the beginning. After a warm welcome by Mary Margaret Riccardi the ceremony began. Each junior stepped forward to to the stage where her Senior Sister presented her with her key. This was the moment which had been long awaited by every junior. The key, although small in size, is huge in signi- ficance. It will open the door to future happiness and brightness if it is used in the proper way. The words "Semper Fide1is" inscribed on the front of it hold great responsibility. The owner must be always faith- ful to Holy Names and all its undertakings. The cross is significant of the presence of God in our life. The lily is evidence of the purity which is close to the heart of every AHN girl. with the shining keys around our necks and excite- ment at its peak, we saw the beautiful movie, "The Student Prince." Then sixty-eight newly installed upperclassmen left A.H.N. to spread their happiness and begin at once to fulfill their ideals.

The school uniforms were the fashions commented on by the senior class officers. As Carol Gavin walked across the stage in the re- gulation blue skirt and sweater, white blouse, and school shoes, the panel told us why this was the correct uniform for most days. Anne Holton was next, wearing her gymsuit. This uniform serves to remind us of the respect and courte- sy we owe our lay teachers at all times. Maureen Mahon wore the dress uniform consisting of blue skirt and jacket, blouse, navy hat, white gloves and the uniform sandals. "This outfit's acces- sories are a smiling face and the true Holy Names spirit" was the remark of one of the panelists. In her white uniform and blue tie, Marge Mahar symbolized all the special occasions of the school year. Helen Matthews modeled a floor length red evening gown, whose highlights were style and modes- ty. At the close of the assembly, Mother Rita Mary, Provincial Superior, told the student body that, regard- less of costume, a Holy Names girl always carries herself with dignity. As they listened, the seniors hoped that every AHN girl would appreciate her uni- form just a little more, and wear it with pride. 21 Rosary Lives in A. H. N. Tradition by Marianne Taffe The early autumn briskness and bright stars shining down on our back yard is the setting for the Living Ros- ary, a candle-light procession in honor of Mary. Each year, our realization of the spiritual value of the Rosary increases as the carefully formed decades remind us of a glorious chapter in the lives of Our Lord and His Bless- ed Mother. With each bead said, the girl representing that particular prayer places her red rose on a tray. With the rose is offered her prayers of gratitude or petition. When the roses are offered to our Blessed Mother, we are assured of her pleasure and that of her Son. Since each girl represents a bead, she feels particularly responsible for lifting that prayer to God, knowing that it is a perfect prayer. This tradition will be remembered by all who have been privileged to see it. May it live forever, not only in memories of our years at Madison Avenue, but in the true A.H.N. spirit which will continue to grow in its new setting. Retreat Ends With Sodality Reception This year's retreat was an occasion of special spiritual worth for a group of Sophomores who made their tempo- rary act of Consecration after a retreat given by Rev. Cronan Cantlon, O.F,M,, Conv. The retreat started on a note of generous efforts for Christ. The silence and recollected thought witnessed on all sides gave real proof of the eamest endeavors of the retreatants. Other talks renewed the fervor of preparation for reception of the sacraments, increased 'hatred for sin and its efrects, and inspired a love for virtue. Above all, the closing message of the retreat remains a guiding inspiration for all. Father reminded us of Mary's titles, "Star of R , theSea" and "Morning Star", and then urged us to look to her in all our needs, hopes and joys. It was with these words buming in their hearts that the following new Sodalists left the chapel: Noel Windelspecht, Constance Haczynski, Diane Leonardi, Sheila Vandercar, Coleen Sennett, Mary Ellen Riley, Mary Ellen Rancourt, Kathleen Powers, Janice Probst, Suzanne Pemrick, Patricia Ott, Ellen O'Connell, Jacqueline Mullens, Linda Miller, Ann McArdle, Rosalie Cardona, Paula Farrigan, Mary Daly, Maureen Fox, Beverly Flint, Constance Casey, Margaret Smith. Margaret Britt, Margaret Fennell, Elaine Griffin, Judith Weis, Phyllis D'Antonio, Patricia Schmitz, Leta Lynch, Mary Theresa Hauber, Betty Barse, Mary J. Gusse, Katherine Temple. May the Marian way of life inilame their souls with love for God and His work so that the retreat may bear fruit in all souls whom they meet. Autumn Dance Gives a Good Reminder Falling leaves, a flickering moon, a wishing well - all form the setting of a delightful dance sponsored by the A.H.N. Sodality. Of all the dances of the year, this one probably affords the greatest ease and comfort. In informal dress Sodalists and their escorts dance to the scintillating music of their choice, this year, Jerry Walsh and his orchestra. But with all the gaiety, a note of sadness crept into our thoughts as the hours of fun drew to an end. As with everything else we do this year, we recalled that this is the last dance here. Perhaps we have minded the dif- ficult-to-disguise grating on the windows, the incon- venient beams and the boiling water pipes, but we must admit it has been fun. Decorating has presented a chal- lenge rarely enjoyed by other schools. We have felt a sense of accomplishment when, after days of planning and decorating, the fruits of our labor have transformed our gym into a lovely flower garden or a rustic autumn scene. It is interesting to note the ingenuity displayed by different classes on the occasion of a dance. We wonder if the size of our new gym may even be more challenging, so we look to the future with great ex- pectations. Yes, the Sodality Dance has brought about much re- flection. This social event, sponsored by the Sodality in the hope of training us to bring Christlike actions to every phase of our lives, has reminded us to make Christ a living reality in our new school. Junior Sodality Officers: SEATED: Mary Ellen Rancourt, Prefectg Mary Teresa Hauber, Vice- Prefectg Linda Miller, Secretaryg Maureen Fox, Treasurer. David Duncan, Margie Mahar, Kenneth Borden and Susan Phillips take this one out by the wish- ing well. Our Woyp of Life by Mary Ellen Rancourf There are many clubs or organizations here at A.H.N. but there is one that stands out as a pattern for life. The way to arrive at our goal is surely through the guidance and love of Mary, our heavenly Mother. The Junior Sodality is a sort of novitiate to the major Sodality,during which the girls who have made a temporary consecration to Mary live according to the Sodality way of life to see if they really wish to take on such responsibilities for the rest of their lives. A big project of this year's Sodality is "Spiritual Betterrnent." There is one sure way of attaining this high ideal and that is by faithfully performing the daily duties and trying to reach Jesus through the foot- steps of Mary. If the Sodality is going to have a holy and successful year, each Sodalist must realize that her responsibility is to strive to attain its high goal by her personal efforts as inspired and aided by God's grace. The members of the Junior Sodality realize that this is but a prepara- tion for the glorious day when they shall take on a new life of total devotion to Mary. It is for this that they try to walk with Mary in all things, even the little things. School, home, recreation, work - all are the proving-ground of a good Sodalist who walks hand in hand with Mary in the footsteps of Jesus. 23 " r A ' T Christmas crib in the music room. Star Shoppe Succeeds Again The second appearance of the Star Shoppe brought even greater success than its debut. A transformed gym was again the scene of the accomplishments of hours of devoted preparation. Tables laden with fas- cinating toys, unusual trinkets for Christmas parties, and lovely needlework, were set up amidst the glitter of stars, the blue of ribbon and the excited chatter of purchasers. Gleeful laughter and sudden bursting sounds attracted all to the table to the right of the door where Sisters and pupils won prizes by hitting balloons with darts or throwing pennies on rings. An added attraction this year was the mink cape, on display near the double doors. Chanceswere being sold right up to the last minute before the drawing. Everyone was delighted to hear that the winner was Mrs. Iarossi. No gala occasion is complete without a party luncheon and the Star Shoppe was no exception. Jo- vial and successful shoppers took moments of rest at the Coffee Shoppe in the cafeteria. There is a saying that you can't make money with- out spending money. We at A.H.N. have our own version of that truism: "You can't make money or feel the thrill of success without spending self." We all know that the financial success of the Christmas fair is due to the devotion, interest, and self-sacrifice of the Mothers' Auxiliary and of the girls. We salute such efforts expended for Catholic education and hope to preserve this spirit in all we do in the years to come. Judy Rundel, President of the French Club. C'Esi La Noel To the "Cercle des Etoiles" Christmas is always an occasion of special celebration. Once a year the French Club plans a festive get-together more special than the usually delightful meetings. This year's party was not to be outdone in fun or beauty. A beautifully decorated stage in the gym was the perfect setting for the program of French carols and skits. The glittering tree brightened the softly light- ed gym. The life -sized crib scene kept thoughts and hearts uplifted to the reality of Christmas joy. A choice selection of recitations was rendered by Mary Glavin, Elise Connell, Carol Smania, Mary Alice Conners, Mary Lib Chelius and Jeanne Boylan. The presentation of a Christmas gift to Sister Evange- line Marie was made by Judith Rundel, President of French Club. A climax of celebration was reached when a beautiful cake decorated by a Yule log was brought into the gym and ceremoniously cut. As each awaited her piece, other refreshments were brought in g cookies ice cream and coke. At the close of a lovely afternoon the members of the French Club opened their nicely wrapped favors to find a tiny china statue of "Stella Matutina." what better Christmas gift could there be than this tangible reminder that they must do all things "As Mary Would." Among other plans for the year is a program for Father and Daughter Night. The girls have made a display of miniature books, artists palets, musical notes and other symbols of the great French masters. Juniors Inspire Classes Wm' Christmas Spirit Christmas Spirit "Joy unto all the world " was our aim. The Juniors had worked for months preparing their Christmas pro- gram. Our hope was that we might take some small part in the work of the Church to bring Christ to all minds and hearts at this magnificent season. The curtain opened and a glorious invitation to rejoice in the coming of Christ was hymned by the Junior choristers. The audience followed the Christ- mas story as told by Rev. John Lynch in his inspiring work, "A Woman Wrapped in Silence, " As the verse choir led thoughts to the cave of Bethlehem, the singers expressed the peace of the silent night as shepherds watched their flocks, and the joy of angelic choirs as they announced the good tidings. Kathy Welsch and Marianne Taffe spoke of the inner peace and love found in the hearts of Mary and Joseph. With them we were waiting, and then we saw. A Na- tivity tableau depicted the event which has brought so much joy to the world. Even more stirring was a recitation of Gilbert K. Chesterton 's lovely "Christmas Carol" by Peggy Kearns while the singers furnished a background of soft humming. A finale of praise to God for l-lis great gifts to us closed a program the Juniors shall ever remember as a privilege to prepare, and the school will cherish as an inspiration and delight. Christmas tableau inspires audience. By Elise Connell Holy Names is host to a number of traditions rang- ing from those which began years ago to more recent ones such as Christmas caroling by the Juniors. This year was no exception as the Juniors gathered on the twenty-third of December to herald the ap- proaching feast of a King. Carrying lighted candles the girls proceeded to the crib singing the praise of God. For passersby such a proof of our living faith was probably edifying, although this thought was not in the minds of the carolers. Our hearts were singing to The Kingg we were professing our faith. It was a group of girls raising their hearts and minds to God together regardless of cold weather. Standing there looking at the creche illuminated by flickering candlelight, we thought once again of the night Christ was born and we knew that it was cold like this in the manger. There was no heat except for the breath of the animals. Neither were there extra clothes, for all had been left at Nazareth. So Jesus was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. Too soon the spell is broken. The girls slowly walk back into the gym where a steaming cup of co- coa and cookies await. Warmed both by the Christ- mas spirit and the cocoa, the girls bid farewell thank- ing God for His infinite love. Junior carolers warm up after their singing. 3. . I 1 'r , . t .. "r ' , s .. i. 1:5 o 1 - A 25 'u F 1 Pre Dance Festivities Delight A. H. N. ERS 4 Michael Stapf, Marianne Taffe, Helen Matthews, and Richard Driscoll, guests of the Sisters at A.H.N.'s Plmch Party, are found grouped about the punch bowl, admiring the beautiful table decorations. This year a new tradition was established at the Academy in connection with the Holly Ball. The an- nouncement by Sister Superior that a punch party was to be held at school before the dance only served to heighten our anticipation of the big night. All of the excitement added to the thrill of the Holly Ball and put the girls in an even happier daze than is normal for such a grand event. How nice it would be to show the Sisters our gowns! Even the boys welcomed the idea of meeting our teachers and seeing the school. Although there have always been punch parties the idea of a punch party at school started lively discussions. It was something new,.something kind of frightening, but something wonderful. It was a beautiful night - clear and crisp. As the couples went up the front stairs the school seemed changed from our everyday friend to a growing chal- lenge. We knew this was a special occasion. The 26 parloxs were gaily lit and ready for our visit. After having been greeted by Sister Evangeline Marie we introduced our dates to Sister Superior and our teachers in the reception line. We were then led to another parlor where we were served punch and sandwiches. How pretty our friends looked in their beautiful gowns! l-low handsome their escorts were in their tuxedos, and military uniforms. Was it really only a few days since we had last seen each other? The Sisters praised our modest yet stylish gowns. The parlors and corridors seemed to tingle with happiness. But ours was not the only punch party. Members of the senior class and their escorts were entertained at the home of Maureen Mahon and Mary Anne Britt. Cynthia Wood and Mary Lib Chelius were hostesses at their homes for the Junior class while the Sophomore class was the guest of Elaine Griffin, Mary Anne Catlin and Colleen Sennett. Mary Alice Stephens and Mary Pat Vandercar entertained members of the Freshman classes. nc antmen: if ci V!linier's Ni '51 y GUYBGI1 OX The throne was elevated at the fa e d of the Ballroom and was draped with glistening gold cloth. To this throne the queen and her court were called to receive their crowns. Her majesty, Helen Matthews, first of all crowned Mary, the Queen of Heaven and of all our events. Then, Mary Margaret Riccardi crowned Helen who crowned the Senior Belles of Honor, Mary Alice Connors and Lillian Goergen. They in turn crowned the Junior Holly Belle S, Margaret Bartle and Sandra Benedett. Next, in turn Margaret Britt and Mary Ellen Rancourt, Sophomores, and Maureen Mahoney, Mary Alice Stephens and Patricia Varden, Freshmen, received their crowns. The Senior Dance concluded the coronation in grand style. The Seniors looked beautiful as they whirled across the floor with their escorts to the strains of the Senior song, "While We're Young." After a few more numbers, it was time to say "Good -by" to the 1956 Holly Ball. As the couples moved out of doors, it was still snowing but no one seemed to mind for they all had their excitement "to keep them warIn."

This statement has been declared true by many older and wiser people who are prominent in the So- dality field, and the majority of AHN Sodalists must agree. However, the Sodality will not suddenly be- come successful just because this truth is acknowledg- ed. Each Sodalist must take stock of herself and do whatever is necessary as an individual to become a more perfect Sodalist and thus to insure a successful Sodality. Since, because she is a Sodalist, she is also a vital member of the Mystical Body of Christ, she must make herself aware that she is aiming at the perfec- tion of her love for the whole Christ. Through her spiritual duties as a Sodalist she can intensify her union with Christ, the Head of the Mystical Body. Hers must become a more vigorous life of faith, hope and charity so that she will give strength to other members and bring new members to the Mystical Body. The help of guidance and association with one another which the Sodality provides will be a source of strength for her and a means of enhancing her union with Christ. As a Sodalist she must cooperate with the group to build and reinforce the Mystical Body, things beyond her reach as an individual. A Sodalist is required to be zealous on her own account -- that is, to aid and sanctify her neighbor, to spread Catholic doctrine by work and by example, in short, to be an apostle. This is the Age of Mary and also the Age of the Lay Apostolate. Thus, the Sodality is indeed an or- ganization of our time for it combines the outstand- ing Person and Cause -- Mary and the Lay Apostolate -- and offers an ideal technique to make people holy and apostolic, thus meeting the needs of our times. Therefore, a Sodalist, as a member of an organization which should be a great force for good in our world today as well as in her school, by her Act of Conse- cration to Mary, has placed herself at Mary's disposal to do whatever is asked of her. Mary's request is, "Do whatever He tells you." And what is Christ, Mary's Son, telling her? "Hear My church." So, beginning today, she, as an individual Sodalist is going to make herself responsible for the success of the entire Sodality. From this moment on she will do her best to think, will, judge, feel and act as a Cath- olic for she knows now that to be a perfect Sodalist is to imitate Christ and Mary in her actions -- "Hand in hand with Mary in the footsteps of Our l.ord." This Sodalist wants a better and more successful Sodality for A.H.N. so she makes herself, with the help of Jesus and Mary, a better and more successful Sodalist. Are you satisfied with the present state of the Sodality? Do you want a better Sodality for A.H. N? You are the one who decides! Goals Reoched by Mary Glavin Rings for loyalty, rings for friendship, rings for love rings for the endlessness of etemityg weld them all to- gether fashion them with gold, crown them with the shield of A.H.N. and you have our most precious jewel our class ring. The pride of possession was ours on the night of January eighteenth when what we had striven for for four years, took its rightful place on each Senior's finger. Inscribed on our priceless rings is the insignia and the motto, "Semper Fidelis". Mary Margaret Riccar- di, the Senior Class President, impressed upon the Seniors the true meaning of this motto and the signif- icance of the rings not as omaments but as symbols of love and loyalty to the school which they represent. Our President expressed her thoughts on the insignia fotmd on the rings--the lily, the shield, and the cross. The lily is a symbol of purity, the shield wams us of the battles we shall have to face throughout our lives, and the cross represents our eternal source of strength and love. Father Edgar Holden O.F.M., Conv., our wonderful Chaplain, blessed the rings and as always, gave us just the right thoughts at just the right time. The perfect ending of the evening took place in our Chapel where Father Edgar offered Benediction of the Most Elessed Sacrament and the Seniors sang the beautiful Ave Mariaf' The light in each Senior's eyes reflected the joy she felt at being the proud possessor of a school ring. The Seniors hearts were filled with determination and gratitude--determination to be worthy possessors of these symbolic rings and gratitude to those who made it possible for them to attain this honor. Now the Ring Ceremony is over. The rings are ours. Memories begin. ln a picture taken yesterday the wonder is fresh and the enchantment is missing. But as years go by, the importance and enchantment increase and take on deeper meaning. Now the Sen- iors holdthe wonder of their Ring Ceremony in their handsg now it means just the shining gold band around their fingers. But with passing time the memories we hold will be etched deeper and deeper in our hearts and we will grow in love and loyalty for our beloved Alma Mater, Holy Names. Mary Margaret Riccardi and Margaret Halpin look on the prep- arations for the ring ceremony to be certain that all will go smoothly. l New Activities Come to A. H. N. By Maureen Fox and Sheila Roberts Singing ls Our Joy Holy Names Girls Will Learn Homemakii "Attention Girls! All sophomores and freshmen who are interested in group singing, please come to the annex at 10:15 for tryouts!" This brief- announcement was the seed of our pre- sent day Glee Club. After hearing the voices of a large group of girls, Sister Annette Teresa chose about thirty voices which were, in the future, to represent the school on televi- sion. The next day with T.V, as their goal they began the tedious job of practicing the selected numbers. The strains of the "Donkey Serenade" ,"Skip to My Lou", "Getting to Know You", and the beautiful "Sa1ve Re- gina", soon became familiar to the whole school. After many weeks of tiring but rewarding labor, our miniature Glee Club began to push forth its buds. On the morning of their debut on Forrest Wi1lis's show, they nervously presented their program for the student body. The girls so enjoyed preparing this pro- gram that they requested the continuation of the Glee Club. Members of the group elected Maureen Fox as President, Mary Ellen Rancourt as Business Manager, and Patricia Varden as Librarian. As a result of their performance at the Father- Daughter Reception there were many requests for ad- mittance. In compliance with this request about fifteen girls were accepted. 'I'he rest of the school is now waiting to hear the results of a years work blossom forth in the performance planned for the near future. 30 One of the new and entirely different features of the Holy Names High School will be the Homemaking de- l partment. This department will be comprised of a six unit,modern, well-equipped kitchen, a sewing room and an art room. Laboratory and lecture work will be so arranged as to give sound knowledge and some skill in nutrition, meal planning, buying, table setting, interior decorating, manners, judgment, cooperation with others, home nursing, and child psychology. Some of the objectives of the homemaking course, are to make a girl conscious of her own personality, to give her knowledge concerning the structure and needs of the human body, to help her develop and preserve sound mental health and constructive attitudes towards life's problems, to make her understand the dignity of motherhood and the duties and responsibilities of family life. Homemaking is the business of all members of the family. Family life cannot be satisfactory if there is not cooperation, courtesy, consideration for others, kindness and generosity. Homemaking includes not onl activities, but skill in such tasks as preparing good wholesome food, setting an attractive table, and makin simple articles of clothing and household equipment. The General Homemaking course will follow the New York State Regents plan of studies, Those of us who have had a preview of the course in Home Arts class know that we do you a service by telling you abou this opportunity for the future. I Chocolate Sale Pays for Organ Like many of our school's possessions, the old organ with its pipes had become a part of A.H,N. However, at times, we must bow to the forward march of science and give up things we cherish. Such was our experience this year when we replaced the pipes by a Baldwin electronic organ dedicated to the memory of Sister Mary of the Eucharist. In return for this gift to her, Sister must have given our girls a great deal of zeal. For the student body paid a considerable share of the cost by all-out support of a sale of "The World's Finest Chocolate" which was by no means difficult to sell. To add to our own enjoyment here at school, a con- test measuring each class 's selling ability was held. The thermometer score boards were never static for it was a friendly battle to the end. On the final day, ews of victory brought joy to winners Junior A, Fresh- an A, and Freshman B. Since there was a tie for the irst place individual award, a five pound chocolate ar, the contest was extended for one day. Christina aischer of Freshman A sold 374 bars ovemight edging ut Mary Ann Shickle of Junior A who sold a mere 252. By their support of the candy drive which made an 1800 profit, AHNe1s proved once again their devotion o their school and its needs. The organ in chapel ill always be a tribute to the student body of 1956-57. "Practice Makes Perfect" Music is an intimate part of each A.H.N. school day. Were we to enter the building, pass the music room, and hear no practicing, we might become startled by the unexpected quiet. The very atmosphere of the school would seem changed. But such an ex- v perience is not ours. The music students loyally report to the music room, say prayer, and go to their assigned rooms for practice. This procedure is repeated every half hour during the day. The results of diligent practice are displayed at regular intervals at music recitals. Growth in musical talent can be seen as we listen to the delightfully simple tunes played by beginners and the masterpieces presented by those preparing for graduation. Apart from piano lessons, A.H,N. music students can boast of their theoretical and technical studies hardly dreamed of by most of us. A varied program of courses gives the students background in music history, ear training, and rudirnents, form and analysis, and even practice teaching. Opportunities are also offered in the study of organ, voice or violin. But musical training is given to every member of A.H.N, Our primary grades have their rythm band, the high school its glee club and choral groups and every class singing and general musical classes. This basic program is supplemented by concerts given by such artists as William Masselos who this year presented a delightful repertoire of Bach, Schumann, Chopin and Satie. The results of all this can be appreciated by anyone who has seen a music graduation. Practice leads to perfection. U 31 Looking Backward Our stolid fortress of a building has unquestionably retained the same intrinsic character throughout her honored history. But each perhaps thinks of her school in different terms, since for each there are different ex- periences, different memories associated with A.H.N. "JM" felt that it would be especially appropriate this year to ask the students, Freshmen and Seniors alike, to share with us their memories of days spent here at A.H.N. It is in combining these word impressions of our Academy that we achieve an accurate picture of our school and what it means to the typical A.H.N. girl. We can then present a true picture of that certain indefinable spirit that we have come to associate with our Academy, that characteristic spirit that we anticipate will always, regardless of location or the exterior design of the building, mark A.H.N. and the A.H.N. girl. True education is Christian education, and the training received here at A.H.N. gives us, first and foremost, the proper philosophy of life--not only our life in time, but even more important, our life in eternity. We learn the true meaning of liberty, and our privileges and responsibilities as American citizens. "JM" is proud to present the thoughts of one of our most representative students, Senior Class President, Mary Margaret Riccardi, in her prize- winning speech, "I Speak For Democracy". I Speak for Democracy Iknow a melody. It was and is being written with time and care. It tells of happiness and peace, sometimes shaded by sadness and contention. Its beauty and strength have been put on trial countless times, but still it en- dures. The first notes are soft, touching my ear with an almost indistinguishable tone quality. They hold the quiet strength of a people convinced of the superiority of their beliefs, knowing that they can and will withstand hard- ships. They are the factory worker, lunch pail in hand, discussing our foreign policy with the plant foremang the Catholic woman saying the Rosary that the Protestant boy be released from a Red prison campg the Jewish man who heartily greets Mrs. O'Grady when she comes to buy her groceries at his delicatessen. Always growing louder they are whistled by a business man hurrying down the street to his office, they echo mingled with laughter through the halls of a school. They trill in the friendly chatter of housewives talking over the back fence. They mingle amid the shouts of freckle -faced boys playing ball in the neighborhood sand lot. They softly sketch a mother fondling her child, not afraid to have him grow up, knowing the privileges and joys that will be his. The tempo is quickened by the sounds of people's feet going to the polls, the beauty intensified by the counterpoint of people of all different creeds and abilities living together, harmoniously in peace and pride in accomplishment. They draw a sky scraper reaching tall and straight into the air and a field of grain shimmering in the breeze. The notes rise in the crescendo of the noise of a busy city and the silence of the tranquil country. As the crescendo reaches its height it is twisted into an ugly roar. The melody fades, sadly drowned out by the roar of a thousand guns and the screams of dying men. Who would distort my melody? Who is so deaf that he cannot hear its beauty? Surely he has never sung a hymn nor held a baby in his arms. He has never taken a quiet walk in the country nor smiled a real smile. He is distorting what he does not know because he is afraid. But my melody has overcome ignorance and fear before. Again and again the brave notes soar above the sounds of tyranny and guns. The igno- rance may always exist but my melody will be stronger. Strengthened by the blood of those who died that it might not die, it will wander among the straight rows of identical crosses and caress the tiny flags that stand at attention beside these crosses. Hear it as it swells upward, lifted by the spires of a million churches. It cannot be destroyed for it runs deeply through the caverns of man's soul. It is called democracy. 32 Diary of u Freshman September 6, 1956 Dear Diary, This is the most exciting day of my life. At last I'm a Freshman at Holy Names. Ihave looked forward to this for so long it hardly seems possible that this day has finally ar- rived. Looking around I saw 86 other bewildered Freshman wondering what to do, but all were soon made welcome by Sister Superior, the kind sisters, and the entire student body. Rather confused, Anne October 12, 1956 Dear Diary, Tired and weary after a strenuous but enjoyable journey to Rome with the basketball team and fellow cheerleaders, where we were victorious over our sister school by a small margin, After many days of practice and after using various linaments I now found being a cheerleader was heaps of fun.

His conferences opened to us a new av- anue on how to become more Mary-like in our everyday life Spiritually uplifted, Annie Memories Grow by Rhea Ticotte Within the walls of I-Ioly Names Innumerable memories hide, And deep within my heart they try to turn a lasting tide. Parties, dances, games and things Often crowd into our minds, And push the old scholastic things Way out onto the rind. But always in the depths of heart We find friendship bright as goldg And memories of A.H.N. Will grow as we grow old. School Scores by Mary McGuirk How scared 1 was the first day of school, For I felt just as awkward and dumb as a mule. People were coming in and out in great haste, But no one could tell me just which was my place. So Istood, and Istood, and I looked at the ground, 'Til one fine girl came, and led me around. Then I found my classroom just as blue as the sky -- And in it were girls just as scared as I.

The girls looked like Fairy Princesses in their beautiful dancing frocks and the coronation of the queen was something I shall never forget. Dancing at the Ten Eyck in my pink satin slippers made me feel real grown-up. Reclining on Cloud 9, Annie February 14, 1957 Dear Diary, Ihad a wonderful time this evening at the Father-Daughter Affair and I'm sure Dad did too.

The Bells by Ann Lawlor Hear the clanging of the bells, rising bells, What a world of grogginess their melody foretellsg If they'd only not disturb me at such an early hour, Then their sound would not perturb me, and leave m dour. Hear the clanging of the bells, study bells, What an air of misery their melody foretells. If only they'd not call me, To work that's so distasteful, Then their summons I would answer, With step not slow, but hasteful. Hear the clanging of the bells, supper bells. What a world of starvedness their melody foretells. If they'd only call me sooner Then my stomach would not growlg Then I would not be so anxious To devour fish and fowl.

Curtain Going Up The curtain opens, the stage is set and fto our amuse- ment, the cast serenades with "Halo everybody!" What next? With the song ending in chuckles of merriment, a succession of scattered bows are taken, then a burst of applause. From whom? Mfhy, from the actresses them- selves. Peppered with antics such as this Qthere were many othersj the rehearsals were an enjoyment for all. Anticipation. . .An.xiety. . .Work. . Jibccitement. . .These are feelings and happenings experienced in working for or performing in a Senior Play. During the month before the play, our free time was spent at school in rehearsal. Work? Yes, but amply combined with fun. However, as February twenty-eighth drew near, wor- ries furrowed our collective brows. DifEculties onstage were well-balanced by problems backstage. The fate- ful day came closer - and still no costumes! Much to the relief of our wardrobe mistresses, Carol Gavin and Gwen Perrone, the charming ball gowns and dashing military uniforms arrived, with a few days to spare. Meanwhile, Bonnie Maguire, Helen Matthews, and Vicky Sieh had their own problems in assembling the needed props. Our guiding lights through it all were, of course, our directress, Mrs. William Riley, and her devoted assistant, Lillian Goergen. To our great consternation, Valentine fSandra Nowakj became involved in "The Case of The Lost Voice". Yet, by eveningtide of Thursday, the twenty-eighth, the case was solved and the dashing Mr. Brown went on stage to win his love, Phoebe fMeg Riccardij, for his bride. He succeeded and both did a wonderful job of acting. Stage hands Vicky Sieh, Susan Stey and Peggy Kearns enjoy their Carol Gavin does her part in trying work with the challenging backdrop for the ball scene. to make our girls look like men. 4 1-.- 144 , X., , - I . , I . 1 .

The gym became a hideaway for the cast as they costumed and changed hair-do styles. It was fun to look around and glimpse Mary Glavin as the foppish Lieutenant Spicer, Terry Hig- gins as the pompous Ensign Blades and Gail Living- ston as the Recruiting Sergeant. And as the Sergeant said fin such convincing tonesj "And then---the girls!" Amusing and witty were our three inquisi- tive old maids Henrietta fMary Alice Connersj, Miss Willoughby QSue Phillipsj and Fanny fAnne Holtonj. As to duplicating their roles in real life, it is extremely doubtful. As 8:00 p.m. approached, the cast quieted, took their places and waited for the play to begin. When the first few laughs echoed through the auditorium, the cast relaxed. Here was our big event of the year. Why not enjoy it? So we did. We played up to the audience and thoroughly loved every minute. With her mincing steps and Cockney accent, Pat- ty fJudy Rundelj delighted the audience, as did Susan Throssel fMary Beth Nolanj with her docile and fluttering manner. Turned into flirts for the evening were Marge Mahar fChar1otte Parrattj, Mary Anne Britt, Margaret Christoff, Maureen Mahon, and Judy Day. Shock- ing, isn't it? And they performed so admirably well. These young ladies aimed their attention at none other than Marge Halpin and Maureen Maloy. When Friday night came to an end, the cast was sorrowful. Our Senior Play was finished and we be- gan to realize that graduation was fast approaching. Yet we have memories..."Curtain going up!" F f L Fifi- Hifi W' fiat 1 yi. -- . , u .i.: Y, ,. .

I I 1 35 Sophomores Observe Catholic Book Week By Alice Corr One of the activities marking Catholic Book Week was an assembly program produced by the sophomore class. Kit Temple and Ellen O'Connell, presidents of Sophomore A and B respectively, acted as M.C.s. The assembly opened with a skit--"Bookland Homecoming"--written and produced by the talented actresses of Sophomore A. The setting of the play was the school library where the president of the stu- dent council and the librarian Qplayed by Sheila Vandercar and Margie Dyerj were reunited with characters they had already met in such books as KAREN, THE LITTl.E PRINCESSES, and OUR HEARTS WERE YOUNG AND GAY. This was followed by two interviews in which the books LOVE IS ETERNAL and THE LEFT HAND OF GOD were discussed by Marianne Taffe and Gwen Perrone aided by a group of sophomore panelists. After this interlude of enlightenment, the thespians of Sophomore B proved their mettle by presenting a scene from Edna Ferber's SO BIG. Starring in this were Roberta Reilly as Reverend Dekker, Nancy Gui- liano as Selina, and Sheila Stanton as commentator. To test the knowledge and memory of the audience Colleen Sennett, Margaret Fennell, Mary Teresa Hauber, and Alice Corr conducted a quiz on books chosen because most of the audience had read them. Jeanne Boylan and Mary Onf won prizes for their knowl- ed e. gThe program was closed by a short talk by Kathy Powers on the importance of sending Catholic books and pamphlets to the missions. This assembly was lively, enlightening and proved that education can be enjoyable. Boarding School Fun Boarding school! Dull, boring? Are these your thoughts? You may be mistaken. At eight o'c1ock when you are called from the last moments of an uneventful sleep, you have missed two hours of a day already grown old for the boarders. The life of a boarder begins at 5:45 a.m. Terrible? Not really, for even with that head start we often find that it's later than we think. Boarding is an experience offering such benefits as a definite time for undistu.rbed study. All of us boarders look forward to our special cele- brations. Halloween and Christmas give us two of our nicest parties. Sister M. George Francis knows just the kind of party to please us most. She and the Sisters in the kitchen spend time, thought and care preparing decorative and tasty specialties. A big part of our cele brations is to dress for the occasion. Halloween cos- tumes were varied and clever this year as Christmas party dresses were pretty. The fun of these parties originates in the cherished friendships which give so much happiness to our days in school. Together we dance, ice skate, play, sing, chat, study, and pray. A new activity of the year is the singing class taught by Sister M. Annette Teresa. We have learned all kinds of songs for various occasions, the most im- portant being the parts of the Mass and hymns for Benediction. It has been our privilege to sing for both the Mass and Benediction. Boarding is truly a life of varied and beneficial expenences. Bee Hive Activities 36 ,WV L. 4 1 .f "'. r. V, . 1 1 r 1 N Officer Donnelly Refires Cheers for the Victors By Mary Alice Conners Officer Donnelly is one traffic policeman who has been liked and known by all the Holy Names girls for over eight years. Morning after drizzly moming he faithfully picked up paper bag lunches dropped by first graders crossing the street, helped overburdened seniors Lmload their cars, and cheerfully stopped im- patient early morning drivers from running over chat- tering freshmen. In the afternoons he stopped busses with a blast of his whistle whenever he heard a frantic voice call, "Please stop that bus!" He enjoyed getting to know the younger grade school students, and al- ways had a smile for even the most dignified seniors. All of this kindness was suddenly missed. Officer Donnelly has retired, but not before we could thank him. He was completely surprised when Sister Supe- rior ushered him into the auditorium on January 18 where the endre school had assembled to say good- bye. The senior class president, Mary Margaret Ric- cardi, presented him with a perpetual membership in a Mass Association, and thanked him in behalf of all the students for all his help and kindness during his eight years as traffic policeman for A.H.N. By Linda Miller On January 24, everyone arrived at school expect- ing the usual gym day. But this was not an ordinary day, for the sports leaders in the Freshman and Sopho- more classrooms announced that today was the day for the long-awaited Newcomb playoffs. After weeks of industrious practice finally we had a chance to show our skill. That afternoon when we walked into the gym there was as much excitement and tension as can be found at a professional ballgame. Although we were very nervous, the presence of our homeroom teachers and our classmates gave us confidence. The first game was played between die two Sopho- more classes. The scores for both teams soared sky- high, yet they were very close. At the end of the game, however, Sophomore B proved to be victorious. Next the Freshmen held their playoffs and Freshman B proved to be victorious. The long-awaited moment was finally at hand, the champions vs. the champions. After a heated game, Freshmen B'ers were crowned "newcomb" champions of A.l-LN. Two days before this saw the playoffs between Jun- ior A and B. Action was the prominent feature of the event, even for the spectators. Although they didn't play, the spectators eagerly helped the teams with the cheers. Junior B proved to be stronger, but Junior A will have another chance next year. Seniors' spirit and Junior B's talent clashed in the final playoff. Junior B gained the most points in the end ballgame, but they found it hard to compete with the Senior spirit on the sideline. The Seniors just knew too many cheers. Congratulations to Freshman B, Junior B, and to all the girls who showed such fine spirit. 1,1 A , A Special Date by Anne Conners What could be nicer for the girls at A.H.N. than dating their dads on Saint Valeni:ine's Day? Hearts and flowers were the theme for this father-daughter evening arranged by the Mothers' Auxiliary. The girls, attired in their prettiest dresses and accompanied by their fathers, were received at the door by the oicers of the auxiliary. After greeting the Sisters in the classrooms, they assembled in the auditorium for the entertainment, consisting of demonstrations of school work, the verse choir, and the glee club. Parental pride showed forth on the faces of the fathers. Could these be their daughters chatting away in French and Latin, delving into the intricacies of science, singing like the Pennsylvan- ians, discussing their future "valentines"? It seemed unbelievable that their little girls were really so grown up. Next they went to the cafeteria where the tables, decorated with flowers, candles, and sparkling crys- tal punch bowls were laden with tempting delica- cies. Those eating fancy sandwiches, and cakes, appreciated the opportunity for meeting new friends and for seeking out old ones. From the gymnasium came the inviting strains of music. Fathers and daughters danced gracefully to the waltz music, but when faster music was played many fathers retired to the sidelines while their daughters displayed the latest dance steps. All too soon, this enchanting evening came to a close and everyone agreed that it was a most en- joyable and memorable occasion. A. H. N. Scholars Honored by Ann Manning In March of the school year 1956-57 The Academy of the Holy Names chapter of the National Honor Society received ten new members and three pro- bationary members into its illustrious ranks. Mar- garet Christoff, Mary Alice Conners, Mary Prytherch, Mary Margaret Riccardi and Judy Rundel, members of the Honor Society who were received last year, were joined by Seniors Mary Glavin, Mary Theresa Higgins and Marcia Smith. The three Junior pro- bationers, Ann Manning, Judith Ann Myers and Carolyn Suarez, became full-fledged members along with four other Juniors, Barbara Bachman, Elise Connell, Clare Ricciardi, and Marianne Taffe. Three sophomores. Maureen Fox, Diane Leonardi and Suzanne Peru rick were also inducted as proba- tionary members. A.H.N.'s auditorium was the setting for the im- pressive and dignified ceremony, which was C011- ducted by this year's officers of the Society, Presi- dent Mary Alice Conners and Vice-President Mar- garet Christoff. Four candles representing Character, Scholarship, Leadership and Service were lit from the candle of Truth by the new Senior members while old Senior members explained why each of these qualities should characterize a member of the Society. 'I'he girls then received the long-awaited blue honor sashes and gold pins. Father Edgar, our chaplain, lent the final note to the ceremony by informing the new members ex- actly what he and the sisters expect of members of the Honor Society. The ideals set are high, but we may certainly expect the new members to live up to their expectations. Sophomore Margaret Fennell presents her father with a Valentine boutormiere. 38 X ZX if.. r lm-Q uvrwq f I 4. V .p I, -1,- .L dm gh S l .. -5 V' .ff W w' -4. rd. 'XY ' x 1 . .11 - - ' .

' .- -gl "' n. . -' ' This June we will say good-bye to the impressive granite building which has become a second home to most of us over the years, and move to a more modern school. But before we say good-bye, let's roam through the halls gathering memories which we have collected through the years. Remember all the mornings we've made our grand entrance by slamming the basement door, its crashing sound echoing throughout the otherwise quiet building? Remember the chapel hall where all our chattering suddenly stops as we silently murmur a prayer to Our Lady while on our way to class, and the daily visits to Our Lord in the Chapel where we ask Him to bless all our prayers, works, joys, and trials of the dav? The music students will never forget the grand music room or the Cuckoo Clock which seems to cuckoo at the most inopportune times. There, under the guidance of the Little Flower, we travel along the not too smoothly paved road of the piano. I think We'll always remember the overcrowded cafeteria which at lunchtime begins to look a little like Macy's Bargain Basement, or the gym, where we have the most tricky baskets in the world. To get "ii " '-"Mb a basket ln our gym nas become a Work of art. But let's not be disrespectful to You, or make fun of some of Your imperfections. After all, You have given years of Your life as a school housing us AI-lN'ers. We 'll never forget Your well polished floors, or Your stately hallways. At the crest of a slight hill You stand tall and majestic. You are more than something special, for You possess a certain type of character which no amount of mod ern architecture can achieve. Vlfhat makes You impressive and beautiful is the spirit and dedication of AHN shining through. The greatness of Your dedication to the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary is like a cloak. Its warmth is our security, its proteetfulness our growth. This great ness becomes a tradition full of love which We'll never forget. No matter where AI-IN is, on Madison Avenue New Scotland Road, the same wonderful spirit will be there. For even as we move from the old to the new, this same spirit will move with us, bringing an equal amount of devotion and dedication. 39 Business Patrons Albany Associates, Inc. 10 South Pearl Street Albany, New York Albany County Democratic Headquarters 75 State Street Albany, New York Albany Fabric Center, Inc. 15 South Pearl Street Albany, New York Albany Hardware and Iron Co. 39-43 State Street Albany, New York American Glass Co. 543 Central Ave. Albanv, New York American Oil Co. 75 State Street Albany, New York Clermont Restaurant 10 Steuben Street Albany, New York Cohoes,Army and Navy Store 118 Remsen Street Cohoes, New York Colonial Cleaners 177 North Allen Street Albany, New York Cohoes Manufacturing Company Mohawk Street Cohoes, New York Carpinello Oil Co. 329 Columbia Street Rensselaer, New York Carvel Dari Freeze Carmen-Albany Road W.A.
