What would it be like? Would the atmosphere be as friendly as ever, or would the newness of everything give a coldness to the school? I soon found that all my fears were in vain. A,H,N. was just as it had always been. ' First we have Sister Elizabeth Agnes, our new Superior, to thank for this. She has shown a remark- able interest in each girl as an individual and given us many helps in adjusting to our new surroundings. The atmosphere was also made more comfortable by our thoughtful teachers, the gracious Sisters of the Holy Names who have always shown devotion to their students in countless ways. It is through their tireless efforts of the past that we have grown in the Catholic faith which we shall take with us when we leave our beloved Alma Mater to take our places in the world as Christ-like young women. As I looked at our beautiful new school I realized that if it were not for my parents' foresight, I would not be here in Holy Names enjoying such a fine education. Due to the thoughtfulness of all our parents, we are now ready both spiritually and mentally to cross the threshold of adult life. I join with the other seniors in the hope that you, the underclassman, will appreciate .all the oppor- tunities which A,H,N, is offering to you and that you will retain the spirit which has always been a part of the school. We fervently hope that, with God's help, you will remain, as is stated on our school emblem, "semper fidelis" falways faithfulj to both God and your school.

Glee Club Formed, Gives Several Entertainments On the afternoon of November 30, 1956 approxi- mately thirty girls from the freshman and sophomore classes of A.H,N. made their singing debut on the For- rest Willis show and were received with great enthusi- asm. Less than a month later, the juniors presented a magnificent Christmas Cantata. Now in 1957 these two groups have been harmo- niously combined by Sister Annette Teresa to form our Glee Club. From among the members they elected the following officers: Mary Lib Chelius fseniorj President, Mary Teresa Hauber fjuniorj Business Manager, and Mary Pat Vandercar CsophomoreJ'Librarian. After the installation of officers, the girls of the Glee Club regu- larly attended their practice sessions three times each week. Their first assignment was to sing at the dedication ceremony on Sunday, October sixth. For weeks pre- ceding this day suchrbeautifulhymns as "Ec,ce Sacerdos" and "Hail to Our Queen," could be heard emanating from the cafeteria where the Glee Club at 1075 got its start. After this came the big project for the first semester - the Christmas Oratorio. At the rehearsals, the girls found pleasure and relaxation in the anticipation of that night when they would sing for an audience. Other items on the agenda for the Glee Club are a Spring Concert and a performance for the June meeting of the Mothers' Auxiliary. With the same enthusiasm and cooperation as was shown at the Oratorio these events are certain to be successful. Mary Lib Chelius substitutes for President, Jeanne Boylan, in lighting the birthday candles. Mary Hau- ber, Vice-President and Suzanne Smith, Secretary, watch. Le Cercle Des Etoiles Begins Thirteenth Year "LE CERCLE DES ETOlLES" celebrated its twelfth anniversary on October fifteenth in the school's dining hall. Under the Direction of the officers Jeanne Boylan, Presidentg Mary Theresa Hauber, Secretary, and Suz- anne Smith, Treasurer, the meeting was opened with "The Marsei1laise" which was followed by the singing of several folk songs. Mary Lib Chelius,Clare Ricciardi, and Ann Manning were featured in a skit on their reasons for joining the French Club, and Claire Houle, 'Janice Murphy and Joanne Salamida enacted a French fable, "Le Petit Pou1et." Linda Miller told us in French how the club had helped her actually speak the language, which is the primary purpose of the organization. The Seniors then sang their favorite French hymn, "Je Mets ma Confiance." Refreshments in true French style were served before the close of the meeting. Small French flags on each table added to the festive atmosphere. For twelve years now, LE CERCLE DES ETOILES has been one of the principal extra-curricular activities of A.l-I.N, Under the guidance of Sister Evangeline Marie, the club has grown into a beneficial and enjoyable or- ganization. I Class Leaders Are Elected During the first several weeks of school, the members of the various classes elected their officers. SeniorA choseAltheaKeegan, President. This Class's other officers are: Peggy Kearns, Vice-President, SandraBenedett, Secretary, Sue Stey, Treasurer, Peggy Curran, Mission Leader, Judi Myers, Sports Leader.

The President of Junior A is Patricia Ott. Pat re- ceives aid from her capable officers: Margie Dyer, Vice-President, Linda Miller, Secretary, Alice Corr, Treasurer, Mary Teresa Hauber, Mission Leader, Leta Lynch, Sports Leader. The members of Junior B elected Mary Ellen Ran- court as president. These girls also elected Colleen Sennett, Vice-President, Sheila Vandercar, Secretary, ConnieCasey, Treasurer, Maureen Fox, Mission Leader, Elaine Griffin, Sports Leader. JoAnn Graziano was chosen president of Sophomore A. For their other officers this group elected, Cristine Haisher, Vice-President, Carol Galante, Secretary, Joanne Broderick, Treasurer, Betsy Riley, Mission Leader, Susan Healy, Sports Leader.

For their president Freshman B elected Judy Miller. Other Freshman officers are: Mary Lee Debusker, Vice- President, Diane Cavanaugh, Secretary, Rosanne Callan, Treasurer, Toni Murphy, Mission Leader, Jeanne Lin- nan, Sports Leader. The girls of the school have shown their ability to choose capable officers. With such a line-up of ef- ficiency we are assured of a successful year in our new school. Ten Seniors Finish Twelfth Year or A. H. N. Most girls who graduate from A .H.N. come in their Freshman Year. However, in the class of '58, ten girls can boast of starting right from first grade. For Gloria Brockley, Pat Daly, Donna Gallo, Janet Males, Ann Manning, DonnaMulligan, Janice Murphy, Judi Myers, Mary Rita Sicliano, and Cynthia Wood, Holy Names has been their school for twelve years. We beganin Sister Edmund of Jesus' first grade class, as confused little girls, not understanding what school was all about. As time passed, we grew spiritually and physically, forming the plans, the blueprints of our lives. Now, we are Seniors. Through the teaching and guidance of the Sisters, we are ready to go forth to take our places in the world. Family Life at A. H. N. The girls at the Academy of the Holy Names like to think of the student body as all part of one big family, each girl a sister to all the others. But here at A.H.N., as in all other schools, it is hard to become acquainted with every individual member of the student body. Relationships under these circum- stances are helped by the real sisters atA.H.N.--all sixteen sets of them. Each girl and her circle of friends gets to know her sister's circle of friends. Interclass friendships are aided immensely by the bonds between the sisters. Sets of sisters currently at Holy Names are: Maureen andMary Ellen Walsh, Joanne and Mary Winn, Joan and AnnMan.ning, Jill and Jeanne Boylan, Sheila and Mary PatVandercar, Mary and Kitty Temple, Leni and Mary Plager, Sue and Sandy Smith, Margie and Connie Dyer, Linda and Judy Miller, Mary Ann and Elaine Catlin, Joyce and Carol Galante, Arm and Susan Mangano, Pat and Kathryn Wisniewski, and Barbara and Carol Bach- man. Last but not least, A.H.N. boasts a set of twins, Joan and Judy Garrity. And do our sisters ever have strained relations? Of course not! They're all part of the happy family of A .H.N.

Getting to As the student body of the newly built Academy of t Holy Names High School assembled on September nin to begin another year of school work, a babble of excit voices was heard throughout the building. The varied e clamations were merely expressions of the joy and appr ciation that the girls felt for a new school which was n their own. To prove that the majority of the students are hap in their new surroundings, our roving reporter has inte viewed girls from all classes and presents their views belo JEANNINE FULLER, FRESHMAN A.

What I like best about the school I now attend are the modern facilities. It is wonderful to know that they are at hand, ready for use whenever we need them for studies or recreation. MARGARET DYER, JUNIOR A. I think that the most impressing factor of the new school is the beautiful view which can be seen from the large clear windows. Just by taking a glimpse of the scenery, we can transport our- selves to a different world. It all fits in well with the new building and helps us to realize that God's beauty is greater than any man-made structure. MARGARET FENNELL, JUNIOR B. The new school is the most beautiful building I've ever seen. However, althoughthe building is new and modern, the spirit is the same as it was at Madison Avenue. The wonderful school spirit of all the girls still remains to show that we will always be "Semper Fidelis" to our Alma Mater. GLORIA BROCKLEY, SENIOR A.

Although I miss the old school, I feel that it will be quite easy to get used to the present high school and to feel at home here. i These are just a few of the views expressed, but every- !one,I am sure, is as thrilled as can be with the new school and grateful for the advantages it offers.

As a camera with a "photo- graphic memory," I feel that Ican accurately relate the events of an interesting day in my life. OnSeptember 24, 1957, I eagerly prepared for some- thing that I had been waiting for ever since my owner was a Freshman. That was the day the Juniors went to the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs at Auriesville. When I first arrived at school, I had to close my shutter tight to keep out the bright sunlight, but soon after we reached our destination the sun disappeared and reappeared only spasmodically during the rest of the day. We started the pilgrimage with a procession in honor of the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady, which was soon fol- lowed by Mass inthe Coliseum. Then I sat on the shelf while the Juniors satisfied huge appetites brought on by the cool, clear air. I snapped many excellent pictures of the historic grounds, especially in the ravine. We ended the pil- grimage with the Stations of the Cross and the tired but happy Juniors, laden with souvenirs and memories, boarded their buses to go home and dream of this never-to-be-forgotten day. Sodalists Attend S. S. C. A. Have you ever met teenagers from the entire eastern seaboard? Fifteen girls from A.H.N. had this privilege lastAugust, while attending the annual Summer School of Catholic Action at Fordham University. Besides meeting girls from Holy Names in Tampa, Silver Spring, and Rome, they also made the acquaintance of boys and girls 'from other eastern schools. They ex- perienced the thrill of making friends out of total strangers through common work, prayer, and social activities. The purpose of the S.S.C.A. is to promote Sodality organization and personal spiritual improvement. To achieve this goal the girls attended classes in the So- dality way of life. They participated in a convention hour, inwhichvarious teenage problems were discussed. Each day began with a Community Mass. On the final day of classes, a Mass was said in the Byzantine Rite. This summer school wasn't all work! After classes the girls visited St. Patrick's Cathedral, Times Square, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and Radio City Music Hall. They dined in such famous restaurants as Leone's, The Brass Rail, and the "auto- mat." The girls also enjoyed pizza and T.V. parties in each other's rooms. For added enjoyment, the summer school sponsored a number of dances as well as a boat tour around Manhattan Island. Everyone agreed that this combination of friendship, spirituality, and fun was the ideal recipe for an unfor- gettable week.

Mother Provincial Provides Interesting First Assembly The newAcademy has welcomed many visitors eager to inspect our modern faculties, but no one has been received more gladly than our Provincial Superior, Mother Rita Mary. To climax her week long October visit, the first assembly was held, during which Mother showed color films of our missions in Africa. Basutoland, the country in which the Sisters live, is located one mile above sea level. This high altitude causes extremes of climate - hot summers and cold winters. The primitive houses of the Sisters provide little protection against the discomforts of cold winter weather or the suffocating heat of summer. The natives of Basutoland, suffer great poverty. A little native girl recently wrote that she was tmable to correspond with us any longer because she could not afford the price of a stamp. Pictures of outdoor classes, clinics and a novitiate for natives were shown to us . All evidence the apostolic zeal, the selfless efforts of our Sisters. As Mother pointed out, these hardworking mission- aries cannot hope to attain their goal alone. They gratefully receive financial aid, but far more do they need our prayers and sacrifices. Surely Mother realized that the contrast between our school in America and those in Africa must make us more appreciative of our advantages, more desirous of sharing with the less for- tunate. Certainly after this assembly, we will go through the year thinking more of others and less of ourselves. 16 Annual Freshman Day Held September 24 Marianne Speaks for Seniors Freshman Day 1957 was a very happy day for the eniors. Since our own Freshman Day, three long years go, we had been concocting various methods of initi- tion for our poor, unsuspecting, little sisters. How- ver, when we saw how fearful they all were, we dis- arded our fiendish plans and decided on something a little more gentle. We can honestly say that we have never seen a weeter Freshman class. All the girls were extremely acious and appreciative. They showed keen enthusi- sm for the games we had planned for them. Freshman Day is supposed to be, as its name suggests, or the Freshrnan. But we, the seniors, can truthfully ay that we enjoyed our day with the class of '61 even ore than our own Freshman Day. Marianne Taffe Judy Voices Freshmen's Views September twenty-fourth dawned bright and cool as and seniors alike prepared for the traditional Day.

Conv. and Very Reverend Monsignor James O'Nei1, Rector of Mater Christi Seminary. The dedication of the newAcademy of the Holy Name High School took place on October sixth. The sun shon brightly on the visitors who crowded the campus as H' Excellency, Bishop Scully, approached the breezeway t begin the ceremonies. Sister Annette Teresa directed the Glee Club as it re sponded to theBishop's prayer for "Peace unto this edific and to all who assemble here," after it had sung "Ven Creator Spiritus" and "Ecce Sacerdos Magnus." Twenty seniors followed the Bishop and his assistan into the lounge where the Blessing of the School Crucif' took place. There they sang the responses and the "As perges Me" as His Excellency blessed and installed th crucifix. After this ceremony, he proceeded into the aud itorium where Father Edgar gave a speech which was bot timely and enjoyable. On behalf of the Sisters, Fathe thanked all those who had made such a tremendous un dertaking an actuality. Speaking for the students h thanked the Sisters for their devotion and sacrifice. - The Bishop, introduced by Father Edgar, spoke of th many opportunities offered by the Academy and the won derful training acquired by its pupils. He then congratu lated the Sisters on the magnificent structure and con cluded by blessing the congregation. The ceremonie ended with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. ' As the students sang the "Benedicta Sint Sacra Nomin Jesus et Mariae," hundreds of visitors made their way t the lounge where they began a tour of the school. 18 x V Bishop Scully Blesses SchooI's Main Crucifix "May ablessing be upon this place, and may the seven fold gifts of the Holy Spirit descend upon its teachers and upi1s." This was the prayer of the Church read by Bishop illiam Scully as he blessed and hung the schoo1's main crucifix during the dedication ceremonies. The corpus of the crucifix, a representation of Christ he Priest, seemed to signify that the Bishop 's prayers would e answered. A solitary gesture, the placing of the cruci- fix on the wall of our ultra-modern lounge, was the ful- illment of the hopes and prayers of hundreds of people. t meant that the new Academy of the Holy Names, one of the most beautiful and best equipped high schools in estate, was now ready to undertake its tremendous task f educating future citizens of our country. To the Sisters and the parents of the students who have orked so hard and sacrificed so much for its completion, the school means more than an architect's dream come true. In their eyes, it is an instrument in the Hands of God which He will use to mold the minds and bodies of . is children. It is with this thought in mind that we, the students of today and the women of tomorrow, thank God for His lessings and pray" . . .Lord, inspire and guide our works." 19 J. M.

I am one of the many victims of the unfortunate task of babysittii as a source of income. Proof of my bad fortune is my experience with the Nelson children who are very well acquainted with me, and w. find pleasure in torturing me. I don't mind when two year old Billy bites my legs till they are raw, or when five yei old Kathy, who loves to play hairdresser, nearly scratches me bald. But when the nine year old boy, who is almost big as I am, decides to use me as a punching bag, the only consolation is the seemingly small fee of two dollars az fifty cents at the end of the evening. Although I must admit some children are good, they are truly an exception to the rule. One such exception is t, child across the street who never is seen or heard all night, but wl1o presents another problem instead--his parents. Th' stay out until the wee hours of the morning and expect to see you up and jumping around instead of being prostrate 1 the couch futilely fighting sleep. It may seem that I have stated only the misfortlmes of this occupation, but the merits and rewards are few, exce for the generosity of the proud parents. Other topics I have avoided are rules and helpful hints. We are all acquaint. with the rules of proper babysitting and my helpful hints prove useless in most cases. ' This evening I have been babysitting for such sweet children. Bless their souls! They asked me to play prison so innocently became the criminal and am paying my debt to society by spending three hours in the pantry. Oh! Here is the locksmith now! THE IMPORTANCE OF READING by Carolyn Suarez Man is educated in some way by every person with whom he comes in contact, every picture he sees, every wo he reads. The result of this education may not be immediately evident. Some thoughts or impressions, formed wht conversing with others, watching a motion picture, or reading a novel may lie dormant in the subconscious mind for long period of time. The important fact is that, even though it is not obvious, we, as social human beings, are affected by other peoplf ideas and are educated by them. But, since it is impossible for most of us to increase our knowledge in all fields 1 direct contact with those fields, it is important to read material on divers subjects in order to broaden the intellect an become a useful member of society. Books put us in touch with all types of people, places and situations. Good books are keys to unlimited learning a: he who has acquired good reading habits has access to almost infinite knowledge. THE CASE OF: SPUTNIK VERSUS FREEDOM by Kathryn Estill Today the United States is engaged in a desperate struggle for what may determine the future of the Free Wor On Friday, October 9, 1957, the Soviet Union threw into an orbit, to circle the earth, the first man-made satelli This sounds very dull and unimportant in print to those who do not realize the great effect it had on foreign relation A weekafter Sputnikwas launched, the Syrian crisis burst into full bloom, and Syria was soon an ally in good stan! ing of Soviet Russia. Though it is true that the launching of Sputnik by Russia was a great blow to our prestige, I not believe that this was the only blow. There were many other reasons, the main one of which was our handling the Israeli--Egyptian Crisis of last year. This is the reason l believe the launching of the satellite only added anottl log to the fire which made it burn more brightly. Ibelieve that in a sense it is good that the Russians sent up Sputnik when they did. That little ball made of alum num and instruments, without a mind or a soul, accomplished what hundreds of men have been trying to do ever sin the end of World War II, that is to make the American people aware of the danger threatened by Russia. From the e of the second world war until 1950 we sat back supremely content in the thought -that we were the best and most a vanced nation in the world. We constantly ignored, or branded as warmongers, the people who tried to warn us of t. inherent danger offered by Russia. We tried to ignore them when they told us that to be truly advanced you must ke on advancing. There is no reason why we cannot and should not keep trying not only to send up our own satellite, b to reach the moon as well. Americans have never given up and this is no time to start. Our European allies do not doubt our capabilities succeed in advanced scientific ventures. So why don't we create another Manhattan Project and show the "Russi Bear" he hasn't licked us yet. 20 BABY SITTING by Lois Prouiy Picture ablonde curly head, blue eyes, and dimpled cheeks. What do you have ? It's hard to explain. To his mother is an angel. To you, the sitter, he is a bar to concentration on "the stroll," and a laughing hyena when homework essential. Really though, when you see the little darling in bed, all is explained for you. He is an angel--only human with human child's faults--who will someday grow up to be a Casanova in his own right. , You, as his temporary parent, think of what he 'll be like in future years. If you do this, you will not be tempted to ell Mommie on him," but will see him as a priest, a business man, or an entertainer, or perhaps a teen like your- lf, to go through fads and parental disgust, and maybe even babysitting. Mr. MORDUE PLAYS SANTA by Mary Keaveney Mr. Mordue 's lip twitched as he spoke to the sea of faces before him. "The boys must be realistic, down to earth. I will not tolerate sentimentality. There is no Santa Claus, no Easter nny, and no good elf to bring a dime when they lose one of their cavity ridden teeth. Truth is essential. Truth and ld facts." No one contradicted him and no one dared. He was the headmaster and great grandmother Mordue was paying the lls for the orphanage. Mordue rose heavily, quite satisfied with himself, and left the cold room which typified him. As he walked down e hall a small lame figure approached him. It was Timmy Delaney. His father was of no account, his mother, too sy to be bothered with the crippled boy who was her son. The boy spoke, "Sir, Mister Mordue, I found a present under the tree. lt had my name on it, my own name. Sir, ister Mordue, did Mommy or Daddy sent it? I know they did. They love me and it's Christmas. All mommys and ddys who love their children send them presents. They did send it, didn 't they? It was more of a plea than a question. Mordue looked into the tear stained face. "Boy, I will not tolerate senti- entality. Stop that infernal crying." His mind could grasp only one word, 'truth.' He glanced around. No one was sight. No one would know if he told a lie. His voice faltered. He couldn't do it. "Well, boy, if you must know, e present was from the local fire department." As he sat in his office later, he could not help seeing the boy as he sobbed and tried to run down the hall. Mordue ned on the intercom. I-le spoke sharply, "Grace, call Macy's. Have them send up a cowboy hat and guns, some oks and candy to the Delaney boy. Have them sign the card, 'With love, Mommy and Daddy.' Oh! Grace, if you y one word to anyone, you are fired." AIMS OF AHNers by Mary Lib Chelius ear Students, An aimor a goal in life is thought about by everyone at one time or another. When we were young, we were quite re we would be nothing less than movie stars or famous heroines. But our bubble burst just as soon as we began look- g at things with a truer vision. Then we tried to discover what we really wanted to be. Most of us soon found out here our talents would lead us. Then we sat back and expected miracles to happen just by blinking our eyes. This l took place in our freshman or sophomore year when our dream seemed so far away. Why start so early to prepare r the future ? After all, we argued, we have loads of time, so why get seribus now? The two remaining years spedby so fast that graduation was upon us before we realized it. We smiled as we received diplomas, but we were weeping inside because now it was too late to realize that each and every day's work and mework counted a million times more than we had anticipated. Take it from me students, each day spent doing small daily tasks, fulfilling each assignment faithfully will build r you a solid foundation which will make a stepping stone for your future aspirations. Yours truly, A 1945 Graduate REVIVAL AFTER THE STORM by Susan Maron Have you ever watched a street come to life immediately after a storm? Silent and deserted a few minutes before, 'is suddenly reoccupied by all who have been forced to take hurried shelter. First come a few stray cats. Where they ve been during the downpour nobody seems to know, but they now parade disdainfully into the open, skirting puddles dsniffingthe air in a suspicious manner. An earsplitting scream announces the arrival of a dozen children who race t of their homes like prisoners released from temporary confinement. They tumble into the nearest puddles where ey splash contentedly until warning threats from various upstairs windows force them to dry land. By this time a few usewives have ventured out on a postponed shopping tour. They squint suspiciously at the sky and argue with them- lves about taking umbrellas. Finally the birds swoop cautiously down and drink greedily from their private reservoirs, lthe while keeping a wary eye cocked for their feline enemies. Gradually the street assumes its usual busy appear- ce as if no storm had ever interfered with its familiar routine. 21 Margaret Ringwood presents roses to Our Lady ' symbolizing the Aves of her rosary. Seniors Receive Rings in Special Ceremony, The auditorium was filled with a happy crowd --happy, not for themselves but for the Seniors who were to step forward to receive the official school :ring of the Academy of the Holy Names. Their joy could in no way compare with the feeling in the heart of every Senior. This evening marked the culmination of many years of eager anticipation. Also, itwas the beginning of a new life for every member of the Class of 1958. The Sophomore Class formed a very impres- sive "Rose Bower" through which the Seniors walked. This was the beginning of what we hope willbe alasting tradition. Earlier in the evening, the freshmen had presented little corsages to each oftheir Senior Sisters. Everything was a reflec- tion of the wonderful A.H.N. Spirit and gave our parents a .true feeling of pride in having their daughter a Holy Names girl. From this day forth as the Seniors wear the gold ring inscribed "Semper Fidelis," each one must do all she can to defend God, Church, Country, Family and the Academy. The Lily and the Cross which are present on the crest are symbolic of the Faith and Purity of every Holy Names girl. This evening was one of the very first events to take place in our new Academy and it will be remembered by all of us as a highlight of our Senior Year.

Sodalisis Honor Mary, in Living Rosary Holy Names has been establishing traditions during the years. Now the high school students have the privilege of continuing these customs at their new home in Bethlehem. Fittingly, their first opportunity to do so came on October 13 when they paid homage to Our Lady, Queen of the Holy Rosary. The Senior Class, carrying yellow lights, formed the Crucifix, and the Sophornores also carrying yellow lights formed the medal. The Hail Marysg and our Fathers were made up of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, some carrying red roses and others red, blue and green lights. A rose was offered for each Hail,Mary and those present recited the Rosary aloud for peace in our country and in other lands. A verse of the Lourdes Hymn was sung after each decade. The entire student body wore blue uniforms with white gloves and carried Rosary beads. After the procession and Rosary everyone went to the auditorium for Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. The ceremony concluded with the hymn, "Hail To Our Queen." an appropriate ending for this solemn ceremony. h 22 'f The annual Alumnae Tea and Fashion Show took N Enjoying an intermission between dances are from LEFT to RIGHT: E.

At the fashion show sponsored by Town and Tweed .and Little Folks' Shop,the Alumnae and their children acted as models. Background music was provided by Joanne Broderick and Janet Walton. Following the fashion show,tea was served. Sev- eral alumnae poured while seniors acted as waitresses. ' Attendance at this year's event broke all records. Perhaps the new school was the attraction. In any case, comments heard afterward indicate that the afternoon was enjoyed by all. Sodality Sponsors November Dance Each fall, preparations for the Sodality Dance create an air of happy expectation in the halls of A,H.N. This year was more exciting than ever before. Perhaps it was because we were older or because we had our beautiful new school to show off. Every day, as the date of the dance drew closer, the halls echoed with: "Let's all go together!" "Fourteen in one car?" "Did you really ask him?" proving how really silly supposedly sophisticated girls can be. The night of November l5finally arrived and the sen- iors uncrossed their fingers as their out -of -town dates made it home on time. ,From 8:30 to 11:30 we danced to Earnie Matelitz' band, and drank the delicious punch made by the juniors. At 11:30 , the closing hour of the dance, a new tradition was begun. Instead of playing "Goodnight Sweetheart" or something similar to end the dance, the band played one of our favorite hymns, "Hail to our Queen." This was very appropriate since our dance is sponsored by the Sodality whose motto is "To Jesus Through Mary."

There was much excitement at the old academy when the an- nouncement was made that a new school would be built. The present seniors were then freshmen. At the time, it was thought that they would be juniors when the high school moved to New Scotland Road, but inclement weather and shortage ofmaterials added a year to the original estimate. An architect's model of the proposed building was put on display in the corner of the high school hall and became a favorite gathering place for the girls at recess. Much speculation' was made as to what A.H.N. would be like in its new surroundings. The school actually opened its doors for classes in September, 1957 and on October 6, it was formally dedicated in an impressive ceremony. lFor story see page 18.1 JM Picture Story The ninety acres of property on which the lovely new school is built has an interesting history. Sister Mary Esterwin, the Superior of the Academy at 628 Madison Avenue, and Mother Rita Mary, Provincial Superior, kindly consented to open their treasures of memories and tell the IM Staff about the different uses of the property since it was first purchased by the Sisters of the Holy Names in July, 1922. Mother Mary Fredricka was the Superior at the Madison Avenue Academy when the property was acquiredby Mother Mary of Lourdes, Provincial Supe - rior at the time. It was then a farm, and the Sisters planned to cultivate it for their own use. Cows, chickens and vegetables were raised. fContinued next pagej Sister Elizabeth Agnes, Superior of the new Academy, has had pre- vious experience with the property. Some time ago, Sister Superior was Mistress of Discipline at the Madi- son Avenue Academy. At that time, the boarders made an occasional excursion to the farm which pro- vided them with private picnic grounds. Today we find on the property the beautiful new academy with its charmingsurroundings of woods and landscaped fields. But what will spring up on our ninety acre cam- pus in the future? The postponed novitiate will undoubtedly be built , some day. The land was next the site of a boarding school, but for a very short time. The water was quite sulfurous and the bath water used by the boarders smelled like frogs, so the school was inevitably discontinued. Many offers were ma-de to purchase the farm, but the Sisters took the advice of Father William R. Charles, Pastor' of St. Vincent de Paul parish, and didn't sell. A renowned educator, Father was then owner of the Karlsfeld site of the present Mater Christi seminary, directly across New Scot- land Road from the new academy. Finally, the land was rented to different fam - ilies. The last tenant was Doctor Leddy, who lived there for fourteen years, until the land was cleared for the new academy. On these pages JM presents indoor shots of the new school to accompany its interesting his- tory. However, the grounds provide ample room for other facilities. Perhaps the school will some day be expanded to include ajunior college or even a small college. The history ofthe campus of our academy continues to unfold as its first student body uses it for events such as the Rosary procession, founding traditions which we hope will endure with A.H.N. Who can tell what events will be added to the history of 1075 New Scotland Road? We can only hope that it will be as interesting as its past. One of the loveliest parts ofthe new build- ing is the chapel, seen below. However, this is not the first chapel to be constructed on the prop- erty. In the old days of the boarding school, there was another chapel where the Sisters heard Mass onceaweek. A unique feature of the new chapel is the illustration of the litany of the Blessed Virgin on the stained glass windows. Another feature of the campus which preceded the construction of the school is Rose Hill, the peaceful cemetery which lies at the end of the road winding past "Lake Henry." Just across the field from the main door of the convent is the shrine in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes carved in pristine white and dedicated to her namesake, Mother Mary of Lourdes. ffff 0 25 if ,.. , ,Pr W gfmfswf L Pat Ott shoots for a basket during varsity game. Albanians Entertain Romans-Share Basketball Honors November 11, anational holiday, was especially en- joyable for those girls who attended the annual "Rome Day" here at school. Everyone had been awaiting this day and finally at about eleven A.M. the buses arrived, carrying the girls from Rome. .After the girls had alighted from the buses and haz' met friends new and old, everyone went into the gym- nasium. , The first event was the Junior Varsity basketball game in which Albany was victorious, beating Rome with a score of twenty to twelve. After the game .everyone went into the dining hall where a lunch, prepared bythe Albany girls, was served. During this time a talent show, organized by Mary Keaveney and Peggy Curran was presented. Entertaining the audience were girls from both Rome and Albany. Following the lunch and entertainment, everyone went to the gymnasium for the Varsity basketball game, the final event scheduled for the day.' In this game, Rome won by a score of twenty to eleven. Shortly afterthe Varsity game was over and the fare- wells were said, the buses departed, leaving happy girls with happy memories of a wonderful time. 'VI Above Left: Sophomores, E. Riley, J.

Mass was followed by breakfast eaten in silence in order to promote serious meditation. After breakfast the girls went to the gymnasium where they met their retreat master, Father Dismas Rehfuss, O.F.M. Conv. in the first of a series of conferences. Ample time for spiritual reading, conferences with Father, and visits to chapel was provided for between the conferences. Throughout Ithe retreat, Father's frequent jokes and Istories helped impress upon the girls the which should govern the daily of Christians. On November twenty- retreat was closed with Mass and Papal Blessing. iors, for it was onthat day that they received their keys to the cherished sphere of "upper-classmanship." The Senior-Junior Party commenced as the Seniors escorted their junior sisters fromthe lounge to the impressive dining room where Rhea Picotte and her committee had graced the tables with crystal, silver, and linen. Beautiful fall floral center pieces blended with the autumn coloring enhanced by the decorative napkins aptly engraved "Senior- Junior Tea." Finallythe highlight of the aftemoon arrived as each Senior in turn bestowed a Junior Key, with all its meaning, upon her Junior Sister. To the Seniors it symbolized that they were according the rights and privileges of being upperclassmen. The Juniors were thrilled with the knowledge that this key would open the door to new experiences. Also they realized that they were now even closer to their Senior Sisters. As the Juniors headed towardhorne that aftemoon, one thought filled their minds. They sincerely hoped that they would be able to live up to the many requirements which stemmed from the words upon the keys: Semper Fidelis--Always' Faithful. i . ff,--:Q L as "3-fr' IEFT: M.

On December 6, the members of Le Cercle des Etoi1es,A.H.N.'s French Club, gathered in the festively decorated dining room to take part in the biggest meeting of the year - the celebration of the "feta de Noel." We sang all the traditional French carols, and were joined by our guests of honor, the faculty and non- members ofthe Junior and Senior classes. Sister Evan- geline Marie, Moderator, was presented with a set of books by the members of the French Club, and each person attending received the traditional Christmas gift from Sister. At the close of the meeting, the Sophomores served petits-fours and orange-ade on the candle-lit tables. After wishing each other "JoyeuxNoel et Bonne Aimee," the members and guests drifted out of the dining room, humming the traditional French Club parting song, "Bonsoir Mes Amies."

It began for most of us at friendly gatherings for dinner or punch at the homes of friends. Then-- on to the ball! The girls were receivedby the faculty and chaperones as they entered the lovely ballroom, transformed, by a pro- fessional decorator, from our familiar gym. The band was approvedby all, and dancing and chatting with friends was the order of the evening. The lovely, Mary- like gowns and pleasant time being had by everyone was evident to those stop- ping in the lounge for some punch as they watched the dancers. Best feature? Plenty of room! High light of the affair was the crown- ing of the charming Holly Queen, Georgiann Kenna, by School President Marianne Taffe. Belles of Honor were Joan Garrity and Peggy Battle. Other HollyBelles were: Juniors, Mary Teresa Hauber and Corinne Cortesig Sopho- mores, Karleen Gentile and Mary Ruth Vottisg and Freshmen, Jeanne Linnan and Mary Plager.

Mrs. Vincent Taffe was general chairman of the affair. The mothers had spent many months pre- paring for this fair and their work was mani- fested in the beautiful display of handmade articles in the Arts and Crafts and Boutique booths. The highlight of the evening was the drawing for a five-htmdred dollar bill. The winner of this was Mr. Ralph Jason, father of Joan Jason of the Sophomore B class. Since Mrs. Jason had sold him the lucky ticket, she was awarded fifty dollars. The door prize, an electric fry pan, was won by Sharon Coyne. Sister M. Kevin Michael of the faculty of Saint Thomas' School, Del- mar, held the raffle ticket -that won her a beautiful doll from the toy booth. Not only was the Star Shoppe a pleasant affair for the merry shoppers who attended, but also, it was a most profitable event, since it netted six thousand dollars for the hardworking mothers. Story of Christmas Re-Enacted in the Glee Club Oratorio Thursday, December 19, had a special meaning for the girls at the Academy of the Holy Names High School. Our newly organized Glee Club gave its first real performance by presenting the oratorio, "A Christmas Triptych." The freshmen and some of the sophomores began with the song "Keep Christ in Your Christ- mas," while the remaining sophomores, juniors, and seniors formed the Glee Club, Verse Choir and Tableau. Denise Mainville ,the composer of the oratorio, is a Dominican Sister, formerly director of music at Barry College and presently stationed in Michigan. ' In her oratorio, she told the Christmas story, including the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, and ended with the majestic preface from the Mass for Christmas. Inour re-enactment, seven soloists portrayed the actual people, Mary Ellen Lenden acted as the Angel Gabriel in one scene and as the Blessed Mother in another, Carole Treanor represented the Blessed Mother in the Annunciation. Peggy Kearns sang the part of the angel in the Nativity and Mary Stanton portrayed the shep- herd. Jeanne Boylan, Camille Natale, and Rosalia Cardona typi- fied Balthasar, Melchior, and Caspar in "We Three Kings of Orient Are." Preceding each scene, the verse choir narrated the coming events. ' As the oratorio was concluded, the Glee Club appeared in a candlelight procession singing beloved Christmas Carols. As they hummed "O Little Town of Bethlehem," the curtains opened to reveal the seniors depicting a tableau of the Nativity. Effective lighting provided an exquisite backdrop for this scene. To finish the performance, Carole Treanor sang "O Holy Night" with the Glee Club joining in the chorus. Needless to say, the oratorio was a big success, and everyone in the audience left the school with a better appreciation of the meaning of Christmas. High School Students Help Poor at Christmas Christmas means giving, not receiving, and this year A.H.N. students put this into practice. Each class in the high school adopted a family that had no hope for a Merry Christmas. Committees were formed, all the girls worked together to collect food, toys and clothing for the needy families. One sophomore class adopted afamily often children and provided them with an entire turkey dinner--already cooked. Other classes assembled a special Christmas gift box for each member ofthe chosen family and included gifts which they had learned were most wanted. Everyone was more than willing to make the sacri- fices which this project entailed. Knowing that they were playing Santa Claus for those who thought he wasn't coming made Christmas Of 1957 a merry one for the girls here at A.l-l.N. Behind-the-Scenes Workers Contribute to Oratorio Success A crew of not-too-silent, but unseen partners working behind the scenes of our Christmas Oratorio contributed greatlyto its success. During the week before the per- formance, Janet Males, Sandra Benedett, Genevieve Mead, Clare Ricciardi and Mary Rita Siciliano spent many hours manufacturing angels' wings from buckram. During the presentation itself, managers Judi Myers and Leni Plager kept everything running smoothly on stage while Sister M. Martin Joseph provided the desired lighting effects. The capable team of stage hands accomplished quite a feat by transforming the stage from a Glee Club setting, complete with risers, to a hillside stable in Bethlehem. All this in approximately two minutes! While this was taking place candles were distributed to the eighty-five members of the Glee Club and lighted by other members of the stage crew who stood ready in the wings. The fact that there were no fires. embarrassing pauses, or loud noises during the scene-changing, proves that the workers "behind the scenes" did as good a job as those who were seen.

Susan Mangano 0447 Introducing Freshman A My Aim in Life An aim is an intention, purpose, design or goal. Life is a period of existence, both bodily and spiritual. After defining these two common words, we come to the conclusion that an "aim in life" is the goal of the existence of bodily and spiritual life. This goal is to know, to love, and to serve Godin this world and to be happy forever with Him in heaven. To help us achieve this goal we have three states of life: the religious, the Priesthood, the Sisterhood, and the Brotherhood, the married, dignified by Christ in the Sacrament of Matrimony, and the single life. Each of us has a vocation, a calling from God to a particular state, and in His Goodness, God bestows on each person the grace necessary to discharge his duties. My aim in life is to follow my vocation, whether it be to the religious, married, or single state. If I work in accordance with God's Will, I shall be happy. But if I refuse to co-operate with God's grace and choose the state of my liking, I shall never possess inward peace. The point illustrated here is that I can only be happy in doing God's Will. However, being happy does not mean no sickness,no sorrow, nor hardships. Afflictions are to be met in any state, butthey canbecome less burdensome if taken as sent from the Hand of God, remembering always thatl am a follower of a Crucified Leader. We are never alone in this life, God is always with us. His constant companionship is for us to take ad- vantage of or to discard by the acceptance or the re- fusal of His Grace. Life can be a joy or a grave burden. Letus make it a joy by living as God wants us to live lt! Carol Martin LEFT: M. E. Scally, G. Rogers, M. Birch, J. Stott, M. Walsh, S. Fitzmaurice, D. DeFina, S.

I am one of the seventy-one Freshman at the Acad- emy of the Holy Names who will have the wonderful opportunity of being a member of the first class to go through the full four years at our new school. To me, being able to attend this beautiful school is an honor and a privilege. I have found in my few months at Holy Names that here we receive instruction in things of spiritual and social importance as well as in subject matter. The Sisters are very warm and helpful in every- thing that is for the girl's own good. I am sure the character-building instruction we receive here will help us in our future life in any path we choose to follow. You can always distinguish a Holy Names graduate by her refined manner ofspeech and dress. In married life a Holy Names girl will raise her children to be the strong Catholic leaders of the next century. The gradu- ate who chooses the single state of life will be a leader ofthe lay apostolate. The girl who enters the religious life will train and educate another generation of Catholic women. Our four years at Holy Names determines a way of life, for "Once a Holy Names girl, always a Holy Names girl." Judy Miller To the Seniors One of the best parts of our first year at I-Ioly Names was our association with the girls of this year's graduating class. They are a group of wonderful friends. We want to thank them for all they have done for us and would like to wish everyone of them the best of luck in the future. Congratulations, Seniors, and may God be with you always. ' Sandra Steede Q1-ui A Change of Mind On a warm September morning I found myself on a bus crowded with girls all going to their first day of school at the new Academy of the Holy Names. I was a new .pupil at the Academy, and I felt rather lonely amidst the joyful greetings exchanged by the other girls. I soon found out though that I wasn't to be lonely for long among this group of girls. Soon we all knew one another and we were friends in the new school. Throughout the year we have come to know and love our new school and all it stands for. We have all felt the warmth and friendliness of it grow and become part of us. We have felt our pride in our beautiful school grow and become part of our lives. Judy Devine Boarding Without a Schedule I wonder what it would be like if we could board without a schedule. We wouldn't have to wake up to that inevitable bell. There would be no more gulping down of breakfast while trying to beat the clock. Nor would -we have the last minute grabbing of our coats, books, pens, gyrnsuits, and all other "things" we girls have, in order to catch the school bus. But then again things would get awfully hectic with one boarder deciding she wanted to eat at five o'clock, two or three wanting to dine at five-twenty, and a few stragglers arriving at six. So I guess a schedule is a pretty good idea after all! Frances Lavigne ABOVE LEFT: FRONT ROW, Left to Right: N. Burger, M. Winn, T. Murphy. SECOND ROW: S. Tanski, V. Ehrhardt, K. Wisniewski, E.

Colleen Sennett, Madeline Riley and Mary Keaveney Win Prizes in City-wide Voice of Democracy Conlesl. This year, as in the past, the girls at A.H.N. par- ticipated in the Voice of Democracy Contest. The purpose of this contest, which is sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce, is to make every youth con- scious of his privileges as an American. In our school many girls from each class wrote speeches expressing what democracy means to them. Their classmatesjudged them on the basis of originality, content, and delivery. The winners from each class delivered their speeches inthe school assembly. Colleen Sennett, Madeline Riley, and Mary Keaveney were chosen first, second, and third place winners respec- tively. They then went on to the city-wide contest, where they won a sweeping victory. Here the judges selected them inthe same order as did the three judges at school. This was the first time that three pupils from the same school won the three top prizes. On these two pages, "JM" presents the winning speeches for your enjoyment. Colleen's Winning Speech- Colleen Sennett receives her award. Letter to Curley Dear Kudryadka fCurley, to mej: You are the first living creature ever to circle the world in a space ship. You are a small part of a Russian System that is really accomplishing something. I am writing you this letter just in case, by accident of course, you should happen to land on our soil QRussia forbidlj. You have probably heard of America before, but mayl introduce us to you? QMinus propaganda! j We are afree and independent nation. In order to explain this statement to you, I will define democ- racy as it exists in my world. We, as Americans, are entitled to many freedoms. Is that a new word for you? Religion, the most important: fYes, we do believe in God, and each of us has the prerogative to worship as he choosesj. Our freedom isOF religion, not freedom FROM religion as you've so often heard. We have a free and independent press, encouraged to print the truth at all times. Our editors do not fear imprisonment, nor do they live a lie. As a matter fact, Curley, we are free from fear. All of us are given the right to state our own opinion. I'll tell you something. I watched my parents and my older sister go to the polls and vote for the candidates of their choice. Incidentally, they could do thiswithout fearing any reprisal for exercising their rights on election day. You have seen our unfettered minds. Now let me show you our countryside. Mingled with the natural beauty of our great flowing rivers, our rich mountain sides, are super-highways, teaming with the latest model of cars, and nowhere can one find restricting iron fences to limit the freedom of the people. The countryside at night is abl'aze with the warm glow of the lighted windows from the many peaceful communities, the homes of people now resting from gainful employment. Yes, Curley, we are different, but we are happy, and though your scientists are more advanced than ours in the field of rockets and missiles, I thank God every night that we are a government ofthe people, by the people, and for the people, and despite you and your predecessor, Sputnik, we shall not perish from this earth. Now that you have heard the truth, I am sure you would like to land in America, but in case you wouldn't, tell your friends about us and speak, as I have, for democracy. Sincerely yours, An American Teenager P.S. I know now, my words will never reach you, Curley, but I wish you could realize that all of us here in free America sympathize with you, a lonely animal, caged up in a rocket. The entire philosophy of our great country is based on love, not on hatred, and youwould be known as "man's best friend" here in unmuzzled America. 34 The minute hand of the white electric clock rushed around and around with urgent efficiencyasthe three men paced back and forth on the checker-tiled floor. These men were sharing the same bewildering, amazing yet glorious experience. In an hour or two they would belong to the universal state of fatherhood. In hushed tones they compared their feelings, the funny happenings of the last hectic months, and their reactions when they found that this was to be the eventful night. In seemed months later when the efficient clock pointed to 3:14 A.M. A uniformed nurse entered the waiting room and announced that if the young men wished to see their offspring they should follow her. Seconds later they were pressing their noses against the spotless glass, which was no longer spotless, in an effort to see their little ones. The infants already had definite personalities! You could just tell that the little red-haired lass would have a mind of her own, and that little Jewish boy looked as if he would be a credit to his people. The tiny Negro baby grinned at the funny creature who was standing in front of her 'and decided that sleeping would be more interesting than looking at that silly man who was contorting his face in a rather strange manner and cooing pigeon-like sounds. After the "Oo's" and "Ah's" were completed the three men parted leaving their children in the ha.nds of capable men and women. The babies were placed in their cribs and each in turn lost himself in a strength giving sleep. How beautiful they looked lying there so unconcerned with the physical differences among them. In theory Our United States also makes no distinction among individuals because of racial or religious differ- ences. But unfortunately not all Americans have yet acquired the innocence or rather the wisdom of youth. Yet even tho-ugh racial discrimination has not been completely wiped out, our government is trying. That's what makes it so great! It hasn't stopped trying and it won't stop trying until these babies and thousands of others can be sure that when they become adults they won't be scorned because of a difference, a difference God saw fit to create. These infants will receive the same type of education and health facilities, and when they become old enough, if they wish to go to college, scholarships will be available for them, if they are wortiiy. They can sleep deeply tonight because their future is in the hands of a just and loving govemment which will do everything in its power to see that they are treated without discrimination. Not only for these three infants or for the hundredsbeing born today and tomorrow, but also for the hundreds of millions of unborn. They cannot cry out for equality now, they cannot stretch their arms in supplication to be treated equally. Their arms and lips are sealed with the bonds of time and yet they will be greatly affected by the present actions of our government. These unborn generations will crave equality, and believe me, they will have it. 'Ihe Statue of Liber1.y's torch will burn more brightly, and our flag will fly more freely because the stench of prejudice will be gone forever. How can I be so sure? Because in God, and in Democracy, I TRUST. By Mary Keoveney Senior B My name is Honya. I'm a I-Itmgarian. In the darkness of the night on October 24, 1956, a stealthy"Rise, Honya, quickly, say nothing" awakened me. In but a few minutes I said good-bye to my mother and father, in less than twelve hours farewell to my homeland. My parents, sensing the futility of that October rebellion and fearing reprisal upon relatives of freedom lovers, smuggled me out of Hungary. Unknown friends brought me here to the United States. V Many a night I have asked myself why--why did mother and father send me from them and want me here. Democracy, a word I remember lovingly whispered by my parents, seemed the only answer. Now just one year after coming to my new home, I weigh the value of that word "Democracy." Its roots must be in God. Every morning when I pledge allegiance to the flag and say "one nation under God," I realize that this country recognizes the beginning of democracy in God. Buthow has this democracy affected me? Four freedoms. I have heard talk of four freedoms. Freedom to worship. I have seen the white congregational church,the star-shaped synagogue, the massive cathedral, all with wide open doors. Yes, I do have the choice of belonging to any faith. But, why have I not heard from Mother? Is it because she went to pray in our grey stone church once too often? The second of the four freedoms is that of speech. I have stood panic-stricken while my guardian openly criticized ourlagging defense plan and waited breathlessly for secret police to arrest him. But he has only laughed, "We have freedom of speech in America, Honya." My father, too, spoke his mind during the week of October twenty-fourth. Is that why I have had no word from him? Freedom from wantlhave experienced. Though penniless I have here food in abundance, the most comfortable of homes, the warmest and the best of clothing, all given to me by a democratic and capitalistic United States. It took me a long time to believe that freedom from fear could exist, but now I know that Americans need never fear the midnight arrests, the unjust trials, the concentration camps. For the first time in my life I'm not afraid-- Yes,I am still afraid--afraid of what has happened to you in Hungary. Many American youths do not recognize a fifth freedom. The freedom to be one's best. I know that I, pro- videdlhave personal ambition, can develop any talent I might have to its fullest extent--I can use it in the field of my own choice--I am an important individual in a great democracy. As I stand here attired in a new dignity--a dignity which I somehow feel that God meant all his creatures to have--I am filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and responsibility toward my new country. Hungarians have learned thatonce a hill has been captured, it is very difficult to regain it. Isn't it my duty to say to Ameri- cans, "Wipe the dust of indifference from your eyes, know what you have, defend it at any cost." By Madeline Riley Sophomore B as Ns 4' 5 , L!

Sodalists Observe Lourdes Centennial with "The Song of Bernadette' To honor the Blessed Virgin and to celebrate the centennial of her appearances at Lourdes the Senior Classpresented THE SONG OF BERNADETTE on March 18, 1958. The play was given under the auspices of the Sodality and was directed by Mrs. William Riley assisted by Clare Ricciardi and Mary Ann Shickle. Encouraged by the new stage facilities, Mary 'Rita Siciliano and Sue Smith obtained realistic settings for the grotto, garden, and cachot. Alone on the lights, Mary Ann Heim handled them like a professional. Rosemary Bolognino, Frances McCoy, and Angela Gra- ziano ordered, unpacked, pressed and distributed the costumes. In the dressing roorn on opening night, Sandy Bene- dett and Cathy Waldbillig applied grease paint and powder to the faces of an excited cast. Mary Keaveney was changed into the doubting Mother Vauzous, and Peggy Curran and Barbara Bachman into other mem- bers of the order. Marianne Taffe became-Bernadette, Mary Lib Chelius her sister Marie, and Janice Murphy her friend Jeanne Abadie. Jeanne Boylan, Cynthia Wood, and Peggy Kearns were made up as Bernadette's Mother, father, and aunt. Mary Ellen Kinley and Joyce Galante powdered their hair and outlined wrinkles which helped them appear as elderly friends of Soubi- rous. Other younger friends, a housewife and a miller, were Georgiann Kenna and Sue Maloy. Judi Myers, -Rhea Picotte, Mel Lenden, and Ann Manning became influential men: mayor, chief of police, doctor, and dean. Carolyn Suarez was the dean's housekeeper and Leni Plager the matron of an asylum. During the performance the audience was very re- sponsive, and ,everyone felt that this interpretation of the lovely story of Bernadette was an inspiring tribute to the Mother of God.

H. N. Some recognition should be given to the two sen- iors who have faithfully assisted in the library when Sister William of Mary could not be there to supervise. Beverly Homes is in charge during her lunch period each day, and Sandra Benedett sacrifices her study period to work in the library. These girls do various jobs, such as typing file cards, arranging the card catalogue, and carding books. Congratulations should be offered to Joyce Galante for the wonderful work she did as business manager of the JMPatron Drive which netted Sl 100. We couldn't have done it without you, Joyce! Aword of thanks is due also to Mary Rita Siciliano for herfaithful performance of the task of watering the plants around the school each day. Three sophomores, Clare Burns, Joan Spooner and Mary Alice Stephens are Sister Frances Ma.rie's right hand, so to speak, in the book store. Every morning theyhave the tedious task of minding shop and keeping the book store in shape. These three are always on hand and they deserve a vote of thanks. Mary Pat-Vandercar deserves the gratitude of the Glee Club for the great job she has done as Librarian. Whenever the Glee Club assembles, Mary Pat sets up the chairs and sees that the music is in order. You maybe small, Mary Pat, but you are certainly packed with energy! Gratitude also to the many girls who have rendered their time and efforts to be of assistance at the re- ception desk. These girls are: Helen Mathews, Mary Ellen Walsh, Barbara Bachman, Camille Natale, An- gela Graziano, Rhea Picotte and Susanne Smith. They have been ofgreat aid and service both to Sister Eliza- beth Agnes, Superior, and to the school. These are a few of the girls who deserve recogni- tion for helping to make things easier for everyone at Al-IN. ln behalf of the student body and faculty, we would like to tell them that we appreciate them and the good work they have done this year. The Staff Music Festival Great Success After many weeks of rehearsal the annual Diocesan Music Festival was held at the Washington Avenue ArmoryonFebrua.ryninth. Participating in the festival were the Vincentian Institute Symphonic Band, Saint John's Marching Band, and folk dancers from Catholic Central High School and Keaveney High School. The Color Guard was from Christian Brothers Academy. The singing group was composed of glee clubs from various high schools in the area including about eighty-five girls from our own school. Among the selections sung under the direction of Dr. Joseph Campbell were: "Salvation is Created," "OBone Jesu," "No Man is an Island," "Sine Nornine," and "Thou Must Leave Thy Lowly Dwelling." Present at the festival were His Excellency, Bishop Maginn, Reverend John Burke, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, and the mayors of the cities participating in the entertainment. At the conclusion of the program, the audience joined those in the festival in singing "Holy God, We Praise Thy Name," a fitting way to close the afternoon whichhad been dedicated by Father Burke to Our Lady of Lourdes. Freshmen Win Honor in Poetry Contest Congratulations to four members of Freshman A for their participation in the National High School Poetry competition, and particularly to Jeannine Fuller and Carol Martin who received certificates of merit, and to Maureen Walsh and Pam Tetro who were given honorable mention for their original poems. This means that their poems will be published in the Annual Anthology of High School Poetry. The purpose of the association and its anthologies is to promote among students the development of an interest in poetry. The Winning Poems Thoughts of Nature "The world is wet," said the little frog, "What isn't water is mostly bog." "Oh not at all!" said the little fly, "It's full of spiders and very dry!" "The world is dark," said the moth so white, "With many windows and doors of light." "My poor young friend, you have much to learn. "The world is green," said the ,swaying fern. "Oh, listen dears, " sang the little lark, "lt's wet and dry, and it's green and dark." "To think that's all would be very wrong, lt's arched with blue and filled with song." Jeannine Fuller The Pitch The bases are crammed, The stadium jammed, Butterflies develop within me. The manager paces, The scoreboard he traces And quickly decides what's to be. The resin I finger, And do not then linger To deliver the pitch with my all. Swings now the batter, Triple play ends the matter, With thanks to my clever screw ball. Carol Martin ifteen Girls' Enrolled in National Honor Society At the General Assembly on April 24, sixteen new members were inducted into the National Honor society.

Father-Daughter Celebration Highlights Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day was especially gay at Holy Names for it was the date of the annual Father -Daughter eve- ning. The girls, arrayed in their prettiest frocks, wore the red and white carnations given to each one by the Mothers' Auxiliary. An air of gaietypervaded as the girls proudly showed their dads the school. Promptly at eight, the fathers were escorted to the dining hall for refreshments and entertainment where Marianne Taffe, president of the student body, introduced the performers. The verse choir and madrigal groups delighted all with their per- formance. Mary Birch and Mary Plager, accomplished freshman pianists, proved their' ability by playing "Album Leaf" by Williams and "Hungarian Dance No. 2" by Brahms. Peggy Kearns, leader of the senior rnadrigal group, encouraged the fathers to join in the singing of old-time hits s-uch as "Peggy O'Nei1" and "Bicycle Built for Two." The fathers and daughters then adjourned to the gym where the Vincentian Red Jackets provided music for dancing. Couples glided smoothly across the floor to the waltzes, but the fathers let their daughters take over for jitterbug and the stroll. Too soon the evening's pleasure was over as all bid goodbye and left with happy memories of a truly en- joyable evening. 39 Glee Club Presents First Spring Concert To climax this year's activities, on May 16, the Glee Club presented a Spring Concert. The program, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin in her Lourdes centen- nial year, was divided into four parts: religious songs and chants, folk songs, numbers from musical come- dies, and patriotic airs. The narration of the program was composed by Jeanne Boylan and Mary Keaveney. The reverent strains of religious numbers coupled with classical melodies made up the opening portion. For this section ofthe program, the, Glee Club presented "Salve Regina," Gregorian Chant, "Ave Regina Cael- orum"by de Vocht, "Praise" by Alec Rowley, "Hurrah" by Brahms, "Enchantment" by Elliot and "TheNight- ingale and Cuckoo" by Weelkes. The Songs of the peoples provided variety for the second part of the program which consisted of the Fred Waring arrangement of "No Man is an Island," "Mam- 'selle Marie" by David Gigon, "Galway Piper" by Percy Fletcher, and "Tutu Maramba" by James Erb. To supply a lighter touch to the program, the sing- ers turned to the much loved Musicals. These included "Thumbe1ina" from' HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSON, "Some Day" from VAGABOND KING, and a medley from BRIGADOON. The inspiring music of great composers which gave apatriotic thrill to their first audiences seemed to have the same effect on our listeners. The chorus completed the fourth quarter of the program with "The Battle Hymn ofthe Republic"by William Stefile and "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor" by Irving Berlin. So seemingly brief was the program, so perfectly attuned to the spirit of the 'composers were the singers that at the close of the First Annual Spring Concert the audience felt like joining those on stage in the closing strains of "Let Not Your Song End." Mary Keaveney- District A. L. Contest Winner Mary Keaveney, third place winner in the Voice of Democracy contest, scored her second victory when she represented A.H.N. in Albany County's twenty- first American Legion Oratorical Contest which re- quired speeches concerning the U.S. Constitution. Mary's message, a heart-warming story of a Negro boy and his mother, concerned the question of segre- gation. Her well written plot and sincere delivery won for her a twenty-five dollar cash prize and the right to praticipate in the District Finals at Monticello, N. Y. on February 8. Marytold our reporter that she wouldn't have missed the experience at Monticello for anything. Speaking in strange surroundings for an unknown audience was harderthan speaking in Albany, and therefore a bigger challenge. She is very grateful for the experience which she feels contributed much to her education. Social Patrons Dr. and Mrs. Bruno E. Amyot Mr. and Mrs. Carmon Audino Miss Teresa Audino Mr. and Mrs. H. J.
