As our school days start passing into memories we look back on the get-togethers that provided so much fun, the special parties where we acted so "grown -up", and the classes which once brought uncomfortable moments but are now fond memories. Above all, we remember our teachers who were ad- visors, friends, and disciplinarians at one and the same time and thanks to whom we are now ready to enter the world as Christian women. To them and to our parents we give the promise to al- ways remember the principles they taught and to remain "Semper Fidelis" -- always faithful. 'L- 9 Page 2 .A jigufe A cloud of sadness enveloped the world on October 9, 1958 as the tragic message was borne in every newspaper, on every radio and tele- vision -- Holy Father Dies I As Catholics, it was natural that we should feel deep sorrow at the loss of our spiritual father, but the flood of mourning and condolence which poured forth from figures of all faiths and nations showed, even more acutely, the place held by Pope Pius XII in the hearts of all men. Eugenio Pacelll - Pope Pius XII - was an inspiring leader - truly wise, profoundly holy, deeply concerned with the troubles of all man- kind. He devoted his life to service of God through service of His creatures. A force for peace in a war -torn world. a symbol of godliness in the midst of paganism, a figure of love where hatred is rampant- Pius X11 stands forth as a man ot the ages. In our grief over the death of Piux XII, we recognize that it is for ourselves that we are sorrowful, for we shall miss him. Let our sadness, however, be converted to joy in the realization that our beloved Holy Father is sharing in the glory and inestimable happiness of the blessed, rejoicing in the presence of the Beatific Vision: that he, who labored so ceaselessly for peace during his earthly life, will surely seek God's mercy for us now, during his heavenly life. Pope Pius XII, pray for us.

Signed: Class of '59 A Page 13 SCAOOI What a wonderful day to return to schooll The day was September eighth, the feast of the Nativity of our Blessed Mother who is so much a part of our lives at Holy Names. The sky was clear, the sun warm, and the trees just beginning to brighten with autumn color. Mixed emotions were ours that day -the regret that summer's freedom was so soon over, the joy of seeing friends and teachers once again, and the eagerness to explore our new studies. As we approached a new school term we reflected on the year to come -the com- panionship, intellectual pursuits, social events, and special occasions that are all a part of Holy Names-and our hearts were filled with gratitude for the opportunity to re- turn to our beloved school. OAAZADIII-a ay "O the juniors and the sophomores should be friends! " This was the beginning of the song sung to the sophomores by the juniors at Oklahoma Day. To bring the juniors and the sophomores closer together each sophomore was given a junior sister 4 who brought a delightful box lunch for both of them. -F Q We assembled in the gym for forty -five minutes of wonderful fun. The well -stocked box lunches were opened and consumed in the midst of laughter and happy conversation. Then the juniors presented their choral selection--a song from Oklahoma. The lyrics had been very cleverly altered by Betsy Riley to fit the occasion. Here and there among the juniors a cowboy hat or neckerchief appeared ,to lend authen- ticity to the theme. A resounding cheer of appreci- ation arose from the sophomores, mingled with the call to duty of the inevitable bell. Although this event only lasted for a lunch period it was a day we will all remember--and for an important reason--because it showed the friend- liness existing between the juniors and sophomores and strengthened the bonds of tmity and friendship characteristic of the girls of Holy Names.

Y- -.1 - ,-L-,J uniora eceiue ey!! af jeu After several gloomy, rainy days, Saturday, the first of November, dawned bright and clear. It was a beautiful day which led to the already existing excitement and anticipation among the jtmiors. At last we were to receive our long -awaited keys. Arriving at school in our crisp new white dresses and blue sashes, we were greeted cheerfully by our senior sisters attired in their white dresses and pink sashes and wearing the keys on blue ribbons. Each junior was escorted to the cafeteria by her sister where friendly groups gathered to chat. Delicious hors-d'oeuvres and punch, prepared by the seniors, were served and enjoyed by all. Then, at last. the moment we were awaiting arrived. As each junior's name was read, she was presented with much -prized key by her senior sister. Following the presentation of the keys, appropriate words were spoken by Ellen O'Connell, president of Senior A and Mary Ruth Vottis, Ioan Spooner and Kathaleen Higgins, presidents of the Junior homerooms. We were also delighted, as we always are, to hear a few words from Father Edgar Holden. The re- mainder of the aftemoon was pleasantly spent watchingfkggh Qey a splendid movie. The kindness and friendliness of our senior sisters has made the Senior -Junior tea a happy memory for all Juniors. The words of merriment from Father Edgar amuse class presidents: Mary Ruth Vottis, Ellen O'Connell, Joan Spooner, and Katha- leen Higgins. Page 15 I I I ' r X, .Ji-, .

The Thespians of the Senior Class brought forth their hidden ability -- Acting! Let us turn back the clock to the week of October 6, 1958. During this week it became known that tryouts for the play would be at 3:15. Everyone was excited and sur- prised when they learned the play, written by Beatrice McNeil, was to be a musical set in Holland. In the weeks preceding the play, the girls, besides memorizing lines, songs, and dances, were busy as bees making their own costumes. The costumes were varied shades of blue with stripes, polka dots and checks. To add to the gaiety of the play and make it more Amster- damish, the cast was fitted with real Dutch shoes-- wooden ones! 55-, .. ' 'A say 'ff if-if .ffsriaftkfv Time was getting short! November 10 loomed up on the calendar. The scenery was simple, yet attractive. In the center of the stage was a large windmill to bring to the play the spirit of Holland. The play was a huge success. The audience was intrigued by Foos fRoberta Reillyj, whose ,ability to scheme was incredible. Rika's QShei1a Vanqlercarj, shrieks of laughter filled the audience with -glee. Petronella, QCo1leen Sennettj, the fairest maid in Leyden town, was truly confused. Myneer Van Kopplekoop, fLeta. Lynchl, whose appetite was bigger than he, himself, will never be forgotten. Dirk Van Houten, fMary T. Hauberj, succeeded in winning fair Petronella, for his bride. Singers and dancers were superb. They deserve extra credit for putting over the musical side of our play. Without the expert guidance of Mrs. Reilly, our directress, Nancy Giuliano, our choreographer, Sister Frances of Mary, and Sister Annette Teresa, our play could never have achieved success. Willing cooperation, happy times, and hard work characterize our presentation of The Wedding Shoes. I 5 r, D g . ,V,A .X X ,. , "f' rr , .,, .x fl pg, , l PYVELECJME ff T t-if FQCJME P it ,..

Zu fcA jrea f Dutch windmills and tulip - filled wooden shoes welcomed the Romans to Holy Names on Novem- ber eleventh. Other bright decorations reminiscent of Old Albany adorned class bulletin boards and doorways. The buses from Rome arrived at 10:30 a.m. Excited greetings were exchanged while old friendships were renewed and new ones made. Each girl received a small identification tag in the shape of a pair of wooden shoes. I Then everyone proceeded to the gymnasium for the basketball games. The Albanians emerged victorious in the Junior Varsity game while the Romans conquered in the Varsity. The Albany team was coached by Kathy Powers, chairman of this year's newly formed A.A.A. -- Academy Athletic Association After the games everyone adjourned to the cafeteria where a plentiful lunch, arranged by the Juniors, was served. The afternoon's entertainment consisted of a presentation of the Senior play, "Wedding Shoes". Decorations for the day centered around the play's setting in Holland. All too soon this happy day drew to a c1ose,but the frequently spoken, "See you in Rome in the spring, " promised more good times with the girls of our sister school. l l Action and excitement mount dur- ing the var- sity game.

Early in the evening, each junior presented her senior sister with a corsage of pink carnations re- flecting the thought and happiness they shared with them. As the organ struck the first chord from "The Grand March of Aida" the seniors filed into the auditorium under the traditional arch of roses. First Ellen O'Conne11. Senior A class president, expressed our happiness at having our parents with us on this memorable night. Then Sheila Roberts spoke and impressed upon us the true meaning of our ring of gold, inscribed with the A. H.N. insignia and motto "Semper Fide1is". The moment had now arrived when we would received our rings from Father Edgar Holden, our chaplain. Later Father blessed the rings and then gave one of his wonderful talks. Colleen Sennett, president of Senior B, conveyed our thanks to our parents, teachers, and friends whose help and encouragement have meant so much over the years. H The spirit of A. H. N. was truly present on that night, as the entire student body sang "America, Our Heritage. " The perfect ceremony ended with the singing of our "A1ma Mater" and the light in each senior's eyes reflected the joy she felt at being the proud possessor of the Holy Names ring. . 1 ll, t I A !!!!l- iiQil 'W' ..

Truly that is a most important question, one that should be heavily weighed before making a decision. If we do decide to be, then we must realize that the Sodality is much more than a high school organization. It is and should be a pattern or road map to our eternal goal, Heaven and the Beatific Vision. If we decide not to be, we must strive even harder for Heaven, since that is the destination of us all. The Sodality is extraordinarily proud of the fact -that it is the Sodality of Our Lady. It invites its members to kneel at the feet of this Mother and to rise, as the Apostles did, with strength,which she gives,them to lead lives of courageous purity and to do deeds of Christ -like valor.Every young woman Sodalist has the privilege of taking the virtures that crown the head of Our Blessed Lady and placing them upon her own soul. Ours is the Sodality of Our Lady. If we serve Christ, as surely we do, it is in imitation of the woman who served Him best. If we love the Bless- ed Trinity, we know we can find no other love more exemplary than that of the woman who loved the Trinity as devoted daughter, unselfish mother and immaculate bride. When we serve our fellow men, we can have no example more inspiring than that of Mary, who loved the world because her Son loved it, and who devoted all her days to serving others because this was her way of proving to Christ how deeply she loved Him. To Mary every Sodalist turns in imitation and in prayer. From our sodality duties, which we all perform daily, it is easy to see why our motto is, "To Jesus through Mary. " The Sodality truly is a challenge, one that we should meet courageous- ly and confidently. Are we all willing to sacrifice, to respond unselfishly to this challenge? Before Mary, Immaculate Virgin and Mother of all the world, the modern Sodalist kneels in love, in imitation, in utter trust. .7Aree aya wifA god "I shall go unto the altar of God, unto God who gives joy to my youth. " With these opening words of the Mass our annual retreat began on the morning of November 24. Reverend Sylvester Benson continued the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which would be of- fered on each of the three days of retreat. There was an air of peace and harmony as the students partici- pated actively in the recitation of the Mass. The regular program of conferences, confessions, talks with Father, and time for spiritual reading and meditation made complete and thought-laden days, days in which the interruptions and clamor of the world were put aside and we turned to God and spirit ual matters. Father Benson was a perfect retreat master who helped us to evaluate our spiritual standing and in- spired us to aim at higher goals of sanctity. The "Deo gratias" of the conclusion of the Mass re -echoed in our hearts as we thanked God for our re- freshing, peaceful, and joy -filled days of Retreat. ...teal T llllg ii?-il , ll it till ti? 31' N 'rut -C Q' Ph 'fs IN ll with .

Its members meet in the cafeteria every other Tuesday afternoon to sing French songs, to learn about the culture of France and to converse "en francais" with their friends. The officers this year are: Linda Miller, president: Jill Boylan, treasurerg Mary Alice Stephens, secretary. The director of the organization, Sister Frances Marie, has done line work in making the meetings interesting. One of the most important events on the club's calendar was the Epiphany Party on January 6th, At this time "La fete des rois" was observed. The refreshments served were candy, nuts, coca -cola, and a special holiday cake, called "Le gateau des rois". The cake was cut and, as is the custom in France, whoever received the bean became the "King" and whoever received the pea was the "Queen". "His royal highr1ess", Mary Alice Stephens, and "her majesty", Carol Fox, reigned over the celebration. Everyone left the meeting with the traditional wish "Bonne et heureuse annee et le paradis a la fin de vos jours. " modern , .xduxihary Among the staunchest supporters of A. H. N. is the Mothers' Auxiliary. It is through the efforts of the members that we have many of our social activi ties. such as our enchanting Holly Ball. Another of its projects is the Star Shoppe. Al- though it calls for a lot of work and sacrifice, the mothers come through and every year is more suc- cessful than the last. This year, for the first time, the Auxiliary utilized our gym for the bazaar. The larger area offered the mothers an opportunity to have bigger and better booths and, as a result, big- ger and better profits. We would like to extend our thanks to the mothers for the wonderful work they have done in our behalf and in behalf of the school. .14 poem The school 's so gay!

Then the Sisters surprised the students with a movie. In the classrooms, after the movie. plans were made for the delivery of the Christmas food and gifts.

Page 22 jAere,5 uaic in fAe .xdir The Holy Names Glee Club introduced Christmas week with a truly stirring performance of Benjamin Britten's "Ceremony of Carols", a collection of Middle English songs. Sister Annette Teresa, moderator and director, also included several of the more familiar Christmas songs in the presentation, a Christmas gift for our family, faculty, and friends. The Glee Club was expertly accompanied by Janet Walton at the piano, Joanne Broderick at the organ and Mary Lee Noonan at her harp. Two entertaining groups affiliated with the Glee Club, the Achonaleers and the Tri -Angels, sang a number of enjoyable songs. A most stirring scene clirnaxed our Christmas offering. The entire student body "caroled by candle- light" as an awesome Nativity tableau was unveiled on the stage. The magnificent stage setting was possible due to the untiring work of Sister Francis Henry, Sister Frances of Mary, Mr. Ott, and our stage crew, Pat Ott, Brenda Reilly and Kit Temple. A special word of thanks is due to Sister Annette Teresa, under whose devoted direction A. H. N. fs Glee Club was able to give a memorable performance. At each rehearsal Sister gave entirely of herself so that our Christmas gift would be one of perfection. The Christmas Oratorio was not the only performance of our Glee Club but one of the many. Thus the I-Ioly Names Glee Club is a very busy and productive organization. Democracy, itself, is stressed within the core of our Glee Club in the fact that the members annually elect their representatives. This year they chose Rosalia Cardona, presidentg Sheila Vandercar, business managerg and Mary Pat Vandercar and Brigid Weiss, librarians. The foremost purpose of our Glee Club is to raise our voices in gratitude to God for all the innumber able blessings bestowed upon us--particularly the gift of song! we Canis! ,Have I F Paula Farrigan crowns Our Lady Queen of the Holy Names Holly Ball. P P ancecl 77i9Af! No picture was more beautiful than that of the elegant dre and radiant faces manifest at the Holly Ball on December 26th. At nine o'clock cars began to arrive at school and girls in bouffant formals entered with their escorts. As they signed the guest book, each couple received a program with a delicate sn flake on the cover. They then greeted Sister Superior, the facu and the chaperones. The auditorium was gaily decorated with a large Christrna tree and colored lights. Highly original hula hoop mobiles hun gracefully from the ceiling. The seniors who helped with the d orations could be proud of their work. Music was by the Earl Kent orchestra. The sophomores gli across the dance floor to strains of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" the juniors to "Stardust". Then the long -awaited moment arrived. A senior girl was picked to crown the Blessed Mother. As Paula Farrigan placed holly crown on our Queen, the seniors' escorts encrowned their dates with the same circlets of holly. After the grand march, whole Senior Class danced to their chosen song, "Someone to Watch Over Me". As the clock struck midnight, the music faded and the Hol Ball of 1958 was over. This was truly a night to remember.

With a little juggling of class time the afternoon was left free for celebrating St. Patrick's Day at the fair. Every Irishman and pseudo -Irishman came to school decked out in finery, all wearing at least a bit of green. Sure they were as pleasing to the eye as a field of shamrocks. The halls echoed with "Top o'the morning to ye", and "Erin Go Bragh" and other suitable sentiments of the day. And there was a bit of tomfoolery over preceding all first names with "O"'. The penalty for forgetting was to dance an Irish jig- and sure that's no penalty at all, at all. After a sumptuous luncheon patronized by all the fun -seekers, the fair was opened with a hymn to our Blessed Mother and the toe -tapping tune "Heigh-Ho, Come to the Fair" rendered by a spirited group of singers from the junior class. Father Edgar cut the green ribbon and a tour of the counties of Ireland, each represented by a booth, was underway. As you traveled from Cork to Killarney to Galway you'd think you were on the "ould sod". Special features of the Fair were a parcel post booth where mysterious gifts could be purchased for small sums, a jitter -bug contest, won by Anne Powers and Bonnie Smith and the "Irish Sweepstakes", won by Kathy Powers. ' A not to be missed feature was Blarney Castle, complete with the Blarney Stone and a mysterious "Leprechaun" who was too shy to expose himself to view.

M. on Feb. 3, the houselights in our auditorium dimmed and flickered out, the conversa- tion of a capacity audience ceased, and the curtains drew back to reveal a Slavic street scene with a crowd of villagers preparing to celebrate a feastday. As the music began and the dancers started to whirl in their brightly colored costumes, there commenced perhaps the most thrilling evening's entertainment we have ever experienced. The music gay and exciting, the dances spirited and brilliantly executed, the perfomiers young and exuberant - there are not words to express the vitality and stature of the pro- gram presented by tlie Tamburitzans of Duquesne University. The "Tammies" are a student group at Duquesne which specializes in presenting the delightful folk dances, songs, and music of the Slavic world. Through long and intense practice they are able to pre- sent a polished and distinguished performance. Among the most popular numbers were the Bulgarian Men's Dances, the Pillow Dance and the Bottle Dance. The program also featured selections on the Tamburitza, a string instrument native to the Slavic countries, which resembles a guitar. After the performance the Tammies were entertained at a party given by the Seniors. The Home Ec. Dept. provided the refreshments and the Tammies themselves provided the music. The girls gathered in a big circle and the Tammies taught them some of the simpler folk dances. They wanted to stay all night to practice but the dancers had to get their rest before continuing their tour so the party broke up early. ' We feel fortunate that we were able to engage them for their February 3 appearance and hope to bring them to the Academy again.

Its rhythmic rhapsody Is written in my daily deeds, With pulsing harmony. A minor mode moans through dull days When I am ill or sad. And skipping major's merry keys, Befriend me when I'm glad.

In the forest, deep shadows are cast, And the fawn drinks its fill Of the cool water of the mountain stream That rushes and tumbles past. The moon rises higher in the sky, And now the forest is still As the golden twilight fades into night And the moon casts her silver light Upon the sylvan hill. It is night -- the forest is still.

Dawn sang sweetly with the voice of spring. How very softly it crept enveloping each tree. With the hushed murmur of the past hours, Day broke, reached out, and grasped the earth in ecstacy. FRUSTRATION I thought and I pondered, In deepest despair. Words rushed through my brain, While I tore at my hair. My cheeks flushed with fever I really could have died - No poem could I write But I certainly tried!

A new and novel club was introduced to the distinguished line of long -standing organizations at AHN. It is the active, interesting, and inform- ative Camera Club. lt was not hard to find a member of the facul- ty to help support the new club. Under the en- thusiastic direction of Sister Francis Henry, in- terested members of the student body have re - ceived expert guidance and assistance. The main project of the Shutter Bugs was the purchasing of developing and enlarging equip- ment. To raise sufficient funds to attain their goal, the Bugs developed Holly Ball pictures taken by Mr. Benedict Mangano fthe father of senior Ann and sophomore Susanj who was most generous with both his time and patience. The proceeds of this activity financed all the equip- ment for the club. Other activities included the contest for photographing the school. After all entries were submitted, the best, taken by Ellen O'Connel1, was chosen to be used on the Holy Names book covers. The regular Camera Club meetings proved to be stimulating, with guest speakers such as Harold Fialkoff of Mayfair Studios, who offered advice and pointers on picture taking techniques, and Father Edgar Holden, who showed his slides of his summer in Europe. The quick -with-a -camera officers, Ellen O'Conne1l, Bobbie O'l-lara, and Ann and Susan Mangano, hope that the Club and its benefits will provide guidance and enjoyment for all the Shutter Bugs, or rather, photographers, in the school. - , - .' il' lo V, 'Wai 1 Q Jn e- sf 'L OCNX Q Cir I 43 I grove? The Book tore Notebooks, pens, stuffed dogs? Is there any- thing you need? If there is, you can undoubtedly find it in our indispensible book store. Under the capable management of Sister Frances of Mary, this precious little corner of our school contains not only essential school supplies but many in- teresting and attractive items. This year, much to everyone's approval, the book store was converted into an all -round cam- pus store. One of the most colorful additions is the collection of stuffed toys--little dogs, scholar ly owls, and furry bunnies. There are also such desirable items as pennants, book covers, and ball point pens in the school colors and bearing the school insignia. Possibly the most popular feature of the book store is the well -stocked candy counter. When hunger pangs attack us we rush to the bookstore to purchase our favorite candy. Among the numerous practical items which can be purchased at the store are school tokens, station ery, and stockings. We are all proud of our gay and attractive book store and grateful for the convenience it affords us. "Show me first your penny!

Under the able leadership of Kathy Powers, chairman of the newly for Academy Athletic Association, the Triple A has become one of the most p lar organizations at the school. Kathy has succeeded in making the club on the most interesting and active in the school. Since the Triple A is an association it was necessary to have an "execu board" which is composed of Kit Temple, President--Annette Gilmartin, S retary--and Carol Martin, Treasurer, and six athletic minded seniors. The A.A.A. was not to be'out -done in activities. Each week the diffe classes have a practice day. The sport varies with the season although the popular one has proven to be basketball. In October, the varsity and junior varsity basketball teams were chosen for the annual Albany-Rome Day held November. Then after the bleak days of mid -years were passed, intramural basketball teams were formed, each headed by a captain and a co -captain. girls practiced constanly, holding in mind the coveted trophy to be given t winner. With teams finally perfected, the week of eliminations was schedul March 16 with finals to be held on Friday night, March 20. As the week loomed larger on the horizon, one could always see a bask in the hands of some anxious player in the gym. Finally the fateful day arri with the two Junior teams opening the week. The winners of the Junior elim were the "Ponytails". The following day saw the play-offs between the two more teams followed by the senior-junior game. Finally after much playing and fighting, the finalists were picked. The "Ponytails" were to play the Sophomore "Celtics" on Friday night. The two vied for the support of the faculty and students alike. Colors were chosen, s written, banners painted and pep talks given. Excitement was everywhere a anxious teams awaited the hour of 7:30, and girls waved their colorful banne the air. At seven -thirty with teams and fans assembled game began with Carol Martin taking the first ball. ball went sailing back and forth between the two te and at the end of the half the score was "Ponytails" and "Celtics" ll. The half time brought forth man prises including soft drinks served by the faculty an cheer given by the "Ponytails" mascot, little Katy Then as the game got under way again the "Celtics' made an amazing recovery. As the last three rninutl the game approached the score was tied! Thetwo te battled for the ball as the clock ticked the final mi of the game away. The bell finally sounded with th juniors winning by one point! Sister Superior gave the trophy to the "Ponytaild captain, Anne Conners. Then Pat Orr, the school president, presented Kathy Powers two gifts to thank her for all the time she spent with the teams. Then Sister Superior surprised Kathy by presenting her with a medal for leadership. We sincerely hope that the "Triple A" will con' tinue to be the outstanding organization that it has been all this year. Page 34 Kit Temple, flanked by flags of school and country, delivering her speech, "The Case for the Catholic College" riendo, cpomana, countrymen! Joining the ranks of Demosthenes, Mark Antony, and Daniel Webster, this year, five Holy Names girls succeeded in receiving honors in various contests open to high school students. Kit Temple won pre- liminary and semi -final contests and took second place in the finals of the Catholic Evidence Contest. Her paper, "The Case for the Catholic College", was a clear, convincing, and logical piece of work presented with sincerity and dignity. Colleen Sennett brought back the first place trophy from the Knights of Columbus oratory contest with her dramatic and stirring address on Catholic Contributions to New York State. Then Ellen O'Connell received a merit award for her straightforward and inspiring talk on "My True Security", the subject of the contest sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. In the midst of this array of senior talent there appears one gifted junior, Madeleine Riley, who did such an excellent job in the American Legion oratory contest. Madeleine won the city wide contest. Then, as tension mounted, she was again among the winners in the county eliminations. Her next step was the regional contest in which she made a fine showing. Madeleine's topic was "The Supreme Court and the Constitution" and both thought and delivery were of the highest quality. The last of the previously mentioned five is Alice Corr, who used the Helderberg War as the theme for her short story "The July 4th Proclamation". This entry was judged one of the ten best in the senior high school division of the Albany Cotmty Hudson -Champlain writing contest, and, though not oratorical in nature, certainly worthy of attention with the other award winners. Congratulations, girls. on the honors you have brought your school and yourselves! rl 5 l T flu ree enioro raduate in uoic On the evening of June 7, 1959, three seniors anxiously awaited the moment when they would be awarded diplomas signifying their music graduation. The music graduates, Rosalia Cardona, Nancy Giuliano, and Suzanne Pemrick, had worked dili- gently and tirelessly toward this moment which would culminate nine years of piano study and comple- tion of an academic course in music. The highlight of the program was a recital at which each girl played a composition accompanied by the Rice String Quintet. The Glee Club added enjoyment to the evening by rendering several beauti- ful selections. Then the long -awaited moment arrived--and three new Holy Names music graduates happily clutched their hard -earned diplomas. Although their years of music study at the Academy have come to an end, their love for and interest in music will be a source of enrichment throughout their lives.

But it will be quite impossible for me ever to forget the Academy of the Holy Names or anything about it. After so many years, the Academy has become almost part of me. Con- versely, one is inclined to believe the girls feel the same way in, that they always call me "Sister. " Have my twelve years as chaplain to this grand school left any outstanding impressions upon me? Yes, many. One, however prevails. And that is the spirit of Christian joy which seems to take possession of those exposed to Father Edgar congratulates Regents Scholarship Academy naming winners, Linda Miller and Alice Corr. We read of the grinning Cheshire cat in Alice in Wonderland. Alice's cat, however, is of dour countenance by comparison with our girls. Nor is this animation limited to our undergraduates. Scarcely do we ever set foot in any part of New York State without encountering one or more of our alumnae. Their happiness at seeing even so tenuous a "link" with their Alma Mater as the writer is something to behold. Their whole being betokens joy, and their myriad questions betray a deeply rooted love and reverence for their school. In a sad and self -centered world, why is this note of joy so consistently detected in our Academy girls? For no other reason, we are convinced, than that they are at peace with God and with themselves. Christianity is j0Yfl-11, not mournful. The truly good person is filled with a serene happiness. In a word, our girls brim over with joy because Christ is within them. Now, can you blame me for liking my "job?

This year we were delighted to be able to entertain the girls from Holy Names in Silver Spring, Maryland. On Friday, February 6, a bus load of juniors I and seniors from Silver Spring pulled up in front of the school. The girls had stopped by to attend our First Friday Mass and to have a tour of the new school they had heard so much about. They were completing the first leg of their long jour- ney home from a visit to Rome to attend the Religious Clothing ceremony at the Novitiate.
