High We've met here to tell you goodbye Not one day has post But gladness you've cast And now we must give a great sigh The beautiful A. I. C. High I t's hard now to bid you goodbye Her stripes white and blue Are now meant for you The years seem to pass along too. How can we ever forget them? They still hold a place in our hearts And we will never regret them Although we know we must part. And now dear old A. I. C. High Into the world we will fly A lifetime was spent In our four short years With our beautiful A. I. C. High. mar Castle We refer to the Academy as "Our Castle" because it has often been compared to a castle of olden days built high upon a hill as was then customary. It is here, moreover, that we spent several years of the best part of our lives, living in the very presence of the Tabernacle, princesses, indeed, children of the King. A distinguished visitor to the Academy several years ago expressed the idea that viewing the building from a distance it reminded him of a castle and that as he drew nearer he became very eager to meet the princesses who dwelt therein. We have tried to live up to this ideal during our stay here and have tried to impress this idea of living as princesses in the Court of the King upon the seventy-five underclassmen who have shared our privileges during the past year. We are grateful to our directress, Sister M. Clarissa, for her guidance and the efforts she has put forth to keep this ideal ever be- fore us.

I. C. Cars loaded with happy girls wended their way up the A. I. C. lane to the Castle on the Hill. Girls of preceding years, eager to renew their past friendships, and the new girls, happy in their first great adventure in boarding school life, were bustling around here, there, and everywhere. One hundred ten pupils were enrolled in the various classes. As the new girls were assigned to their rooms, old girls were on hand to direct them to their new quarters and help them to "unpack and arrange lockers and rooms" while on the grounds and through the build- ing wandered groups of girls meeting old friends, making new acquaintances, or meeting their new teachers. All the girls fell in line when the supper bell sound- ed and after a little social session after supper they finally settled to rest. The morning, September 12, found them all at Mass in honor of the Holy Ghost, preparing for the new school year in just the right way. The Big Treat Once again there were heard pep songs, popular swing songs, old reminiscences of songs of by-gone days, as the Faculty and the Student Body rolled along in trucks to Monte Cassino where the annual fall outing was held, October 11. The Student Body sang the High Mass at which Reverend Father Wil- liam ofiiciated. All the girls received Holy Com- munion in the little chapel on the hill. After break- fast the girls made the pilgrimage to the chapel. The rest of the morning was spent in romping through the woods, playing baseball and other games. Dinner was served at 11:30. A hike to the mon- astery and an inspection tour through the buildings completed the afternoon. The Seniors also attended a lecture given by Thomas B. Morgan on Hitler and Mussolini. Once more sandwiches and ice cream were served before we returned to Our Castle on the Hill, very tired, but happy one and all. Initiation Surprise! What was the surprise? On Saturday, October 15, a mysterious meeting was called for 2:00 P. M. in the Recreation Room. Low and behold! it turned out to be the initiation of the Freshies. Imagine their surprise as well as the surprise of all the rest of the student body who were not in on the secret. Sister Clarissa had entrusted the initiation pranks to the members of the Student Spiritual Council and they had kept their secret well. All hats are off to the Freshies for being such good sports. We know they will always be loyal to their Alma Mater after becoming full-fledged members. Senior Surprises Her Classmates The Seniors gave up another of their class on Octo- ber 13 when Rita Kress of Dayton, Ohio who had been here four years entered the Novitiate of St. Benedict. Her entering was a surprise to all of us and we were sorry to see her leave, but it is to a "far better life that she goes." Rita makes the eighth one of the present Senior class to enter the Novitiate. The Seniors are proud to have so many represent their class and wish success and happiness to all of them. In the Sodality, Rita was Chairman of the Literary Committee. She was a great sport enthu- siast and a member of the Glee Club. All in all Rita was a commendable student and our good wishes accompany her in her chosen state. Getting Educated On September 25 the Seniors attended the National Rural Life Conference held at Vincennes, Indiana. It looks as though the Seniors might all settle down to a nice, quiet life of a farmer's wife. At all events they can at least say they attended the original Farm and Home Hour with Everett Mitchell personally officiating at the program. On November 5, Martha Hentz attended the State Catholic Art Exhibit held at Marian College, Indianapolis, Indiana. Several pictures were entered by the art students here. Again Indianapolis was the destination of Doris Gal- lagher, Lillian Stippler, and Mary Louise Pirnat who attended the National Scholastic Press Associa- A. I .C. ACTIVITIES A. I. C. ACTIVITIES tion Convention which was held there November 10-12. This convention was for those interested in Journalism, Newspaper Writing and Yearbook Writ- ing. Christmas Party Christmas holidays at the A. I. C. were anticipated with a real Christmas party. Of cour e, Santa Claus was the guest of honor. And oh! what a nice fat and jolly Santa Claus he was. No soot, no sir-ee-e, for you see, he did not have to come down the chim- ney. He just walked into the Recreation Room and brought his sled right in with him. The reindeer? He left them outside. His sled was chucked full of boxes. The old Recreation Room must have dazed old Santa for he paused as he entered. He didn't know, of course, that the old "Rec" could look so nice. The tables were attractive with yule logs and candles and pine decorations. The favors were red and green sleds, with a stick of candy tied securely to each one. Then came pop corn balls and ice cream and cake to complete the party. Mr. Chase, the photographer, took pictures of the whole group. He wanted to help Santa Claus too, so he treated the whole party to oranges. Why does Christmas come but once a year?

Playlet Orchestra And Then- Santa Claus really came in person to recheck on the A. I. C. girls. How he knew the many naughty things they did proves that Santa Claus does snoop around. The Beloved Crusader On Sunday, December 11, the girls enjoyed a visit to St. Meinrad to see the dramatization of the life of Saint Anthony. The play was called "The Beloved Crusader" and depicted the life of Saint Anthony from his entrance into the Franciscan Order until his death. It was very instructive and inspiring. Seniors Pictures Taken Combing hair, making the adjustments in various ways were really necessary before the Seniors could have their pictures taken on Saturday, January 21. Mr. and Mrs. Chase, the photographers of Hunting- burg, invited the class for the day and this made it a real gala day. So along with the nervous task of sitting just so, chin up, shoulders back, arm back, came entertainment and a sumptuous dinner and supper. As a climax the girls attended an intensely interesting basketball game at the Huntingburg High School gymnasium between Evansville and Huntingburg. The graduates are unanimous in their appreciation and thanks to their host and hostess, Mr. and Mrs. Irving Chase, for their hospitality and courtesy. Forty Hours' Devotion Three great days have just gone down in the history of the A. I. C. They were the Forty Hours' Devo- tion. The Seniors looked very scholarly in their caps and gowns as they marched in the procession of the Blessed Sacrament. Sunday and Monday night from 9:00 to 10:00 the girls kept vigil before the Blessed Sacrament. For some of the girls it was the first watch and for the Seniors it was the last, so let the memories of these hours be cherished for- ever in your hearts. Faculty Day Faculty Day is a day to be remembered by all. The various classes prepared a program for the Faculty which was presented on May 10 in the Recreation Room. The Recreation Room was decorated in pink and blue and the tables for the Sisters were arranged around an imaginary stage. Each class program A. I. C. ACTIVITIES xy' wi- r 991' l , .D A. .

In the evening Ernie Berger from Jasper gave a program in the Assembly. Several accordion solos, tap dancing, singing, two piano solos completed the program. Senior Activities On May 16 on Tuesday, Sisters Clarissa and Mary James took the Seniors who had spent four years at the A. I. C. on a special outing. Putting up with the A. I. C. for four years should merit a reward, says Si ter Clarissa. So they got it. The party went to Spring Mill State Park near Mitchell, Indiana. Fun! They had it, and eats, too. Sure we'll tell you who the lucky ones were: Wilma Davis, Marian Forster, Josephine Bickwermert, Kathleen Born, Marcia Feder, Mary Catherine Finis, Martha Hentz, Mary Agnes Mitchell, Mary Louise Pirnat, Lillian Stippler, and Frances Bacon. Senior Banquet The feast of the Ascension, May 18, was the best day for the Senior banquet. At 6:00 the Seniors lined up and drew names of the Faculty whom they were to escort to the banquet. That's exciting, you know. The Wissel girls and Betty Braun played the entrance march on violin, cello, and piano. The meal was served in courses. The menu: chili soup, fried chicken, creamed potatoes, mixed vege- tables, pineapple-peach salad, carmel nut ice cream, angel food cake, and coffee. The decorations were beautiful-mostly in pink. The musical trio entertained throughout the meal. Senior Dance Friday, May 26, the Seniors had their last social affair together. For a week Sister Mary Albert and the girls worked to get the Recreation Room in spic and span order and that's just the way the room looked. This time there was no crepe paper, but instead beautiful ferns, large vases of peonies and other natural flowers made the "old rec" look like a work of art in nature. A. I. C. ACTIVITIES A. I. C. ACTIVITIES Ernie Berger and his orchestra played for the dance. No one was permitted on the floor except the Seniors. Five cents admission was charged underclassmen to view the dance and to hear the orchestra. Senior Outing Pentecost Monday is always a free day as you well know, so the Seniors and Faculty used the day for the outing. Spring Mill Park was a spot too tempting to over- look, so plans were made for just that spot and no other. A whole day of running along trails, daring caves and visiting the quaint village. There's no need to recount the food. Fun and more fun. Ordination Day Tuesday morning, the day after the outing! But there was no time to humor stiff limbs and sore muscles. Cars waited to take the Seniors to St. Meinrad to the Ordination. The Seniors remained there until evening at which time they had to hurry home for the class night program. Class Night At eight o'clock the organ pealed forth into a beauti- ful march played by Peggy Wissel and very slowly the Seniors marched into the Assembly attired in their white caps and gowns. Upon reaching their places on the stage they sang the beautiful song, "The Angelus," the song they had chosen for their class song. The class prophecy was then read by Bet- ty Braun. Wilma Davis recited the class poem, "Gar- den of Love," which was written by Rita Craig. Martha Hentz read the Class Will and the curtain closed upon the first part of the Class Night program. The trio played several beautiful numbers while the Seniors prepared for their play. Finally the curtain rose and the Seniors presented a hilarious comedy entitled "The Land of Tomorrow." Characters rang- ing from a Turkish wife to the President of the United States were depicted by the various members of the class. The program closed by singing a song written especially for the occasion. And so we came to "the end of a perfect day." A. I. C. ACTIVITIES Award Night On Wednesday night the Music, Commercial, and Athletic awards were given to the various students. Too much applause makes hands sore and that's what happened-almost. Refreshments topped off the evening. One one-year scholarship to Marian College, Indianapolis, Indiana was awarded to Miss Martha Hentz of Madison, Indiana. A two-year scholarship to Mt.

This year there are 37 Freshmen and a combined class of 26 Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. The latter have class on Monday and Wednesday while the Freshmen have class on Tuesday and Friday. At the beginning of the semester the gym is crowd- ed every evening with girls eager to achieve the volley ball technique. Hike to the Stone Quarry On September 29, the underclassmen with Sister Mary Robert as chaperone, hiked to the stone quarry where the Freshies had their first experience in ex- ploring caves. Fatigued from this their first long hike they fairly tumbled into their beds which never before looked so inviting. A. I. C. ACTIVITIES Second Hike of the Semester Although they declared they never wanted to take another long hike, the Freshies were eager to accom- pany the other classes when a hike was planned to the highway, a distance of about three miles. After stopping for refreshments, the group was picked up by the Convent truck and taken for a truck ride through the country. No doubt, the Freshies have changed their ideas about hiking by this time. Seniors Win Tournament To the strains of a pep song, the Seniors went parading around the house announcing their victory in the volley ball tournament. The last game of the tournament was played against the Junior team, making the Juniors second and the Seniors ascharnpsjv There were six teams participating in the tourna- ment, namely Freshman A, Freshman B, Junior, Sophomore, Town Girl, and the Senior teams. Each team played the other team two games out of three to determine the winner. By the process of elimina- tion all teams were eliminated by the Juniors and Seniors. The Juniors had already been defeated by the Seniors, so this game would tell the tale of victory for the Seniors or another chance for the Juniors. The teams were evenly matched and con- sequently a very exciting game was witnessed by the students. After a hard iight the Seniors won out by a score of 35-15. Throughout the tournament the Seniors had not been defeated, so they now hold a record that has not often been attained in the A. I. C. before. All teams were to be congratulated on their excellent sportmanship throughout the tournament. Ladder Tournament Once again the gym was a scene of action. Some interesting games of volley ball were played during the time of this tournament. "Sister Mary Robert, we challenge the Juniors." "Sister, please when do we play the Town Girls?" "Sister are we going to play tonight?" These are just a few of the questions our gym teacher had to answer many times during the day. The winner of this tournament is the team that accomplishes the difficult feat of remaining at the top of the ladder for five successive games. Again the Seniors were the victors. Second Ladder Tournament In order to give the underclassmen a chance to win, another ladder tournament was scheduled for the week before the Easter holidays. As the teams now were more evenly matched the games were intensely interesting and each game a hard ight. However, after a week of hard work the Juniors won this tournament. Baseball At last the anxiously awaited baseball season has arrived. At any time after 3:15 in the afternoon and between 6:00 and 7:00 in the evening enthu- siastic cheering could be heard on the courts where some of the teams were battling for victory. From the beginning of the tourney it seemed as though either the Freshies or the Juniors would be the victors, and so it finally came about that the Freshies and Juniors were left to battle out the ilnal score. And a battle it was to the end which brought victory to the Juniors. Track In the track meet various events took place-the running and standing broad jumps, the running and standing high jumps, the distance throw, and balanc- ing. Although many girls took part in these events, Mary Louise Pirnat, was the winner having earned 350 points. Tennis Although the girls had been practicing tennis throughout the spring, and many good players were developed, the tournament which took place toward the end of May was won by Marian Forster and Wilma Davis in the doubles, and by Mary Louise Pir- nat in the singles. Progress of Our Library The library was opened on November 13, 1936, with little over 700 books. Today, October 28, 1938, the number of books has passed the 3,000 markg all of them are classified, cuttered and more than two- thirds of them catalogued. The Dewey Decimal clas- sification is used and also Akers method of catalogue- ing. Twenty-six periodicals are subscribed to by the A. I. C. ACTIVITIES -G- 5. Y' 311' Q5- Q -n . r. of Q.

Among the biggest collections of books are those on Literature, General References, Music, Church History, and Fiction. All the furniture is of the color school brown. The shelves are 6 feet 10 inches in height and the tables and chairs are from the Jasper Chair and The Jasper Desk Company. On the walls hang three of Sister Gregory's masterpieces. One represents Our Lord as presented to the people by Pilate when he said, "Ecce Homo." Another represents St. Joseph with the Christ Child about the age of eight years. This picture hangs in the library as a continued act of thanksgiving to St. Joseph for the help he rendered in equipping the library with books and furniture. The third is a picture of St. Benedict holding his Holy Rule. On the counterheight shelving that holds the General Reference books, stands the statue of Our Lady of Lourdes with Bernadette, who is represented as a real peasant girl. It has been estimated by our librarian, Sister Therese, that an average number of 80 books leave the room in one day and as many as 40 to 60 refer- ence books are used. 0ne of the most popular books this year among the elders is "Brother Petroc's Re- turn." This is so constantly in demand that it hasn't been on the shelf since June 13, 1938. Among the fic- tion, "The Rosary," by Florence Barclay. Mary Roberts Rheinhart's books are excellent, especially "The Circular Staircase." Myrtle Reed and Harold Bell Wright are other popular authors. The Sisters of St. Benedict at St. Paul's School in Tell City are starting a library and have 500 to 600 books. Toward the collection the A. I. C. library has contributed four sets of reference books and in all about 38 volumes. The library is making a collection of scrapbooks based on literature and religion, but others have been worked on. Elizabeth Lasher has been work- ing on those of "The Tale of Two Cities," "Romeo and Juliet," "Jane Eyre" and "Lorna Doone." The worn-out books are rebound by Sister Georgina. About 500 volumes of these books, therefore, are in first-class condition. A. I. C. ACTIVITIES A. I. C. ACTIVITIES Music Department No idle hands canvbe tolerated in the busy workshop of the Music Department at the A. I. C. Sisters Cyrilla, Mary Robert, and Mary Anthony were busi- ly occupied with the twenty-five pianists, six organ- ists, two harpists, and thirty-five other students who struggled with various other orchestral instruments. Then there were Harmony classes, Theory classes, and Music History classes. The A. I. C. Orchestra The A. I. C. Orchestra, composed of twenty-four members, worked hard and faithfully this year un- der the able direction of Sister M. Cyrilla. The group participated in the Sectional Contest held at Huntingburg, Indiana, April 16 and won second place. Throughout the year they have lent willing assistance at the various entertainments. In Novem- ber they played at Dale, Indiana and at Ferdinand for the Christmas program. The Sodality is espe- cially grateful for the music furnished throughout Vocation Week.

I. C. ACTIVITIES March 30. Margaret Wissel at the violin, Ann Wis- sel at the cello, and Betty Braun at the piano won for themselves hrst place in the trio ensemble play- ing C Minor Trio by Beethoven. They were each awarded a gold medal. Margaret Wissel in a piano solo selection, playing Verdi-Liszt's Riggoletto, also won first place and was awarded a gold medal. Ann Wissel, in a cello solo, playing Allegro-Apasio- nata by Saint Saens won second place and was awarded a silver medal. The Alma Mater was truly proud of the achieve- ments of the three contestants for after all is said and done to have three students bring home tive medals in one contest is no small thing. National Music Contest The winners of the State Music Contest were eligible to compete in the National Music Contest held at Indianapolis May 18-20. The trio was awarded second place and earned for itself a silver medal. Margaret Wissel again won first place in the honor rating and carried away the gold medal. Ann Wis- sel won second place and was awarded a silver medal. Again the Alma Mater extends to the three music students her sincerest and best congratulations for the honors bestowed upon the school through the good showing made at the Regional National School Music Competition Festival, 1939. A Robe for the King On Sunday, March 19, Sister Cyrilla staged a Len- ten play, A Robe for the King. It was also called Veronica's Veil, which gives one an idea of the cen- tral theme. The girls taking part in the play were: Angeline Arvin, Betty Braun, Betty Wagner, Mar- garet Rose Walsh, Mary Louise Pirnat, and Frances Market. The orchestra played, too. The harp was used to accompany the singing in the play. There seemed one thing wrong-it did not last long enough. Art Department The students in the Art Department accorded a vote of thanks to Sister Claudia for her patient, careful, and cheerful guidance throughout the year. The display of placques, charcoal drawings, and oil paint- ings is certain proof of the honest and earnest en- deavors of the Art Class. Appreciation To Martha Hentz, Mary Schnur, Billy Ruth Alvey, Mary Vittitow, and Roberta Beyersdorfer thank are due for the collection of poster made throughout the year. The Sodality is especially grateful for the interesting, artistic and meaningful posters made for Vocation Week. sway 1-1.11 Restless girls, watching the clock, Banging drawers, giving books a sock. Whispering and giggling, ohl what is it all? It's nearly 8:15 in the Study Hall. Some of them studying, cramming for exams Some of them just trying to keep out of jams. There's passing of notes behind Sister's back. There are idle thoughts of Jim and of Jack. The hands of the clock move slowly on While many a girl stifles a yawn. They bend o'er their books, pretending to work When really their duties, they're trying to shirk. The hand hits the quarter-mark, the stampede begins. The chairs are pushed back, up come those chins. And to the "lavs" all the girls start to run To iight for a tub, which shouldn't be done. The baths are all taken. It's time for bed And by now surely all prayers have been said. Has a miracle happened? No, not at all But finally it's quiet in the STUDY HALL!! -Doris Gallagher Y as fwf, - YV tix? 1 'Il' .4 13 as-" ' pa t Y' 1'-fx 1 Ad ,.

Unit Mission Activities "THE SACRED HEART FOR THE WORLD- THE WORLD FOR THE SACRED HEART!" ATTENTION! HARK! the CRUSADE HERALD announces the Reverend Stephen A. Levin, Catholic Street Preacher of Oklahoma! To Father Levin fell the honor of inaugurating this year's Crusade program. And a happy concurrence it was, for the fire and enthusiasm engendered by this zealous young priest-Crusader has borne fruit throughout the year. His charming and unassuming manner carried the Crusaders to a high pitch of zeal for souls. The first official meeting was held, October 7. The following officers were installed: President-Zelma Wethington, Vice President--Angeline Arving Treasurer-Margaret Wisselg Secretary-Betty Rose Egloff. For the benefit of the new girls, Sister Freder- ica, C.S.M.C. Moderator, explained the regulations, requirements, aims, and purposes of the Catholic Students' Mission Crusade. The new girls were accepted as proba- tioners for reception into the C.S.M.C. on Mission Sunday. Keen interest and earnest- ness presages a great Mission year at the A.I.C. MISSION SUNDAY, the annual festal day of the C.S.M.C., was initiated by the Reverend Chaplain, Father William, O.S.B. In the tone of the true missionary, Father William expounded the three-fold mission program of PRAYER-WORK-SACRIFICE. "Live as Christ lived! Pray as He prayed! Work and Sacrifice as He worked and sacrificed and your life will be crowned with success!" was his prophetic message. Immediately after Vespers thirty-nine members were admitted into the Crusade organization. An inspiring part of the program was the processional march of the Ladies of the Crusade led by the officers in uniform. The Crusade banner and the American Hag iioated high as they were borne by the Crusade officers, and formed beautifully the points of the shield formation when the march was halted. During the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the Crusade pledge was taken by all the Crusaders. "The Sacred Heart for the World! The World for the Sacred Heart!" rang with vigor and enthusiasm as the Ladies of the Crusade saluted their King of the Crusade. Memories of this, their first Mission Sunday as Crusaders will live in the hearts of the Ladies of A.I.C. Castle. At 3 P.M. the Reverend John N. Dudine, pastor of Saint Elizabeth's Church, Louisville, Kentucky, showed his mission films. Last year's class were gratified and thrilled to see again the pictures of their Initiation and Rally, May fourth. Regular roll call and mission meeting was held at 7 P.M. Just a short meeting Q?J and then our Sister Moderator gave an inspiring talk on "God Always Gives us Real Heroes." Thus ended a perfect day. THE CHRISTMAS PARTY AT SAINT RITA'S SCHOOL HALL-was the biggest Crusade event of the first semester. One hundred eighty Catholic Colored children of Indianapolis took part in this Christmas fiesta. Weeks of planning, work and sacrifice preceded the eventg and thus 180 gifts and 180 stockings filled with goodies were ready for the party. Last year's Christmas dream had been realized. Many of the A.I.C. girls who had planned to be at Saint Rita's on the afternoon of December 28, were prevented by the austere cold which came on so suddenly. Those present were: Mary Catherine Finis, Margaret Wissel, Ann Wissel, and Roberta Beyersdorfer-Indianapolis5 Wilma Davis-Columbusg Betty Rose Eglofl'-Vincennes. 08.5110 A Christmas carols were sung by the children, a Christmas movie was shown by Father Mootzg and Santa was there, of course, to help our Moderator and Crusaders distribute the treat. The Reverend Bernard Gerdon was a most welcome guest. The C.S.M.C. Unit of Saint Meinrad Seminary was represented by: the President-Mr. Eugene Weidman, and Messrs. Paul English, James Moriarty, and John Reidy of Indianapolisg the Reverend Ambrose Schneider-Jasper, Mr. Adolph Egloff-Vincennesg and Mr. A. J. Schwabington of Louisville, Kentucky. The A.I.C. Crusaders acknowledge a double debt of gratitude to Mr. Weidman and his Unit for their cooperation. The most gratifying part of the project was the assurance given our C.S.M.C. Unit by the Reverend Leonard Wernsing, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools. After a short informal harangue, most friendly and spirited, with the Colored Children, Father Wernsing spoke on the true spirit of Christmas-which draws no color lines. Father Wernsing told the little folks to remember always that before God all persons are equal and that the Christ Child inspires the hearts of others to help those in need and to bring cheer and gladness to the neglected and forgotten ones. He said that today's festive event was a fine example of Catholic Actiong and he praised very highly the Ferdinand C.S.M.C. Unit for engendering such true Catholicity among its members. Father Strange, pastor of Saint Rita's. assured the Ferdinand Crusaders that their efforts were truly commendable and most successful, and that in the name of Saint Rita's School, he wanted them to know that Saint Rita's would always owe a debt of gratitude for the splendid afternoon as well as the fine spirit of the Crusaders of the A.I.C. ' Mission Speakers appear at the A. I. C. Castle every month The first and second mission speakers have already been heralded They were the Reverend Stephen A. Levin of Oklahoma and the Reverend John N Dudine of Louis ville, Kentucky. November brought us the Reverend Felix N. Pitt, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools of the Archdiocese of Louisville. Father Pitt had spent several months in Spam hence he could give authentic and first-hand information of that country Of peculiar interest were his experiences in the trenches. These, he said, might seem entertaining now but they were anything but that when he lived through them. December 18, A.I.C. Castle had as guest speakers the Reverend August Fussenegger and the Reverend Charles Schoettelkotte from the Catholic Charities Bureau, Indian apolis. They told us of the vast opportunity for good in the field of social service aiding the needy, advising the wayfaring, patching up home difficulties reuniting broken homes-a genuine application of the principles of Christ's teaching and of the corporal A works of mercy. The first bugle notes of 1939 announced a member of the home Convent, now a mission ary in North Dakota--Sister M. Felicitas, one of the pioneer band to enter the Turtle Mountain Mission. Sister Felicitas was spending a vacation at the Mother house, and upon the request of our Moderator, she accepted the invitation to speak to the Crusaders at the January mission meeting. Sister related a number of mission experiences, and then told briefiy the daily routine of Saint Ann Indian Mission. February was to bring us a message from a Louisville missionary, Father Dudine champion of the Cause of the Negro. Father Dudine with two of his assistants, Fathers Bancroft and Maloney, came and brought with them fifteen knights and ladies of the Grail, boys and girls of their own parish, Saint Elisabeth's These knights and ladies had won a Grail selling contest and with it a trip to Saint Meinrad, Ferdinand and Santa Claus. The Ferdinand stop had to be curtailed, however, because of time shortage, so we did not get to hear Father Dudine, but we, Jiuuors especially feel highly honored because it was our privilege to entertain the kmghts and ladies of the Grail, and to serve lunch to the party. gg.

On Mission night of Vocation Week, Father William gave us a sketch of the missionary Father's life in Dakota. Father William spent three months in Dakota, so he really knows the missions there. C. S. M. C. Social Events The first social event was a mission bingo held on the eve of Mission Sunday. Useful prizes were drawn by winners. Juanita Helfrich won the door prize, a beautiful napkin ring. Tuesday of the following week, the Sophomore Round Tablers got a break. Instead of the routine of study club, Sister Frederica took the class out nutting. Not exactly a social event, the Sophomores considered it a real treat. A Halloween house party and dance was held under the auspices of Mary Helen Craw- ford and her social committee-the Sophomore class. A clever floor show prepared by the committee helped to make this a most delightful evening. On the afternoon of December 3, the Junior Paladin Group sponsored a "White Ele- phant" sale, and at night the Indian Round Tablers held a bingo. Both events were well patronized-adding several dollars to the mission fund. These aifairs plus a quilt raffle footed the bills for the biggest social event of the first semester: the CHRIST- MAS PARTY FOR THE NEGRO CHILDREN OF SAINT RITA'S MISSION. Washington Tea and Dance Did you ever attend a George Washington tea party? Well, the A.I.C. girls did, and how! the entire afternoon one big thrill. Recreation Hall was artistically festooned in patriotic colors, the color scheme being carried through refreshments, programs, etc. The Brosmer trio from Jasper entertained with a number of delightful selections. Then the radio was "tuned" just right for dancing. After that the Juniors all in colonial gowns gave a most clever floor show. , The Minuet opened the program, and the Bicentennial Hymn followed. A series of George Washington readings were next in order. Ensemble numbers by seven Juniors were exceptionally well executed. A skit by five other Juniors practically "took down the house." The Virginia Reel was the grand finale. Tea, cocoa, cookies, and cherry suck- ers were served. Special guests were: Father William, all faculty members, the Misses Bachert from Terre Hauteg Mrs. Will Brosmer and Miss Rita Mae Schneider-Jasperg and the girls of the eighth grade from Saint Ferdinand School. Acquisitions of the A. I. C.-C. S. M. C. This year the A.I.C. Unit has a Mission room-office, den or workshop, call it what you will. It's the finest acquisition yet made by the unit. How could we ever get along without it? There's where we work, work, work for the missions: sew, embroider, re- make Christmas cardsg fabricate scrap-picturesg sort, mend, and pack old clothingg and the biggest one-job accomplished was the clerical handling of all combination books for the May Mission festival. Not only the Crusaders of the A.I.C. resort to this room, almost all day long one can hear the hum of the sewing machine as Sister Mechtild, an excellent seamstress, is busy helping us with preparations for the social. Mrs. Halbig, too, is seen there often consulting our Moderator or bringing in completed articles of her hand or machine work .... We have a 1938 Crossly radio, too-the jubilee gift of our Sister Moderator from her Reverend Brothers. Acquisition number two is a large bulletin board and pamphlet rack. When the girls returned from their Christmas vacation, the long-wished-for mission bulletin board and pamphlet rack greeted them. The upper A.I.C. hall is a favorite rendezvous now, that's where the new additions are. C .JH CfS..9lf.Cf Paladin Studies The year 1938-1939 will go down in Mission annals as a banner year at the A.I.C. Five Paladin Study groups were organized. Three Freshmen Round Tablers with three Seniors as Chiefs-Martha Hentz, Wilma Davis, and Marcia Feder-did excellent work in the Indian and Negro Mission fields and in Communism Studies. Meetings were held every Thursday evening during free period. The Sophomores chose as their mission investigation, the missions of China and India. Betty Rose Eglofl' was permanent chairman and leader, and meetings were held every Tuesday afternoon free period. Sister Moderator led the Junior class in Communism studies. Four meetings were held during English class hour, and the remaining six during free time. " 'Hail to the Chief who in triumph advances' Honor for victory valiantly won, Paladin Leaders may now sheathe their lances, Theirs is the conquest, their work is well done!" The Sophomore group were the first to present their achievement program. The entire Paladin group of sixty-two were presented in the opening chorus, "The World for the Sacred Heart," and in two original parodies composed by our Sister Moderator. These mission parodies were written to the music of the Notre Dame Victory March and to Jingle Bells. The program was dedicated to Pope Pius XI and to Pope Pius XII. Discussions covered the Religious Cults of India, the Caste System, the Untouchables, the Bengali Boy, Living Conditions and Social Customs of China, the Life of Blessed Theophane Venard, Patron of Chine e Missions, and a personal letter from the Rev- erend Robert Greene, M.M., a former J asperite now stationed in China. The Indian and Negro groups decided to make their pleas for their chosen mission fields direct and in the costume and color native to their adoption. So we find Martha Hentz all dolled up as Sister Tekawitha of Saint Ann's Indian Mission presenting a day in the mission school. Her pupils were very intelligent and the school visitors, Father Ambrose QRuth Grafj, and the good old Indian, Tom Smith, fJean Kamerl gave excellent characterizations. By a peculiar coincidence, Martha was out on an ad- collecting trip when the program was given for the Sisters, and much praise is due Doris Gallagher for carrying through Sister Tekawitha's class. Doris must have man- aged well, for the consensus of opinion was that the Sisters hadn't noticed any dif- ficulty in the act, and were quite surprised to learn that there had been a substitute. Nerve, grit, readiness to help out, and humility-that's what it takes to be a Crusader. One of the biggest problems facing the Catholic Church today is the Negro problem. Why doesn't the Negro enjoy the same privileges as do the other races? Why are there so many persons prejudiced against US Colored Folks?. . . These were some of the questions discussed by the Negro Group in their public achievement. With the words of Archbishop Floersch of Louisville as a beacon light: "The purpose of the Catholic church is to bring souls to Christ, and the soul has no color," the Negro Paladin group blackened their faces and held a Mission meeting with Sister Mary Claver 1Wilma Davisj, a very distinguished Colored nun as Moderator. Some illuminating statistics were given, problems, discussed, direct challenges made in the first person: "We the members of the down-trodden race .... " Zelma Wethington, President, gave a scholarly talk on the life of Blessed Martin de Porres, South American Negro lay-Brother, for whose canonization we are praying.

Dudine, assisted by the Reverend Charles Dudine, O.S.B., the Reverend Matthew Preske, O.S.B., and the Rev- erend William Walker, 0.S.B., when fifty-two Round Tablers received certificates, and ten Third Degree Tablers received the Paladin Jewel. The standard bearers for the occasion were the Misses Angeline Arvin and Justine Holmes for the Crusade banner and the Misses Nadine Stumpf and Bernadine Humbert for the national flag. Father Dudine was the guest speaker. Father Dudine has been active in C.S.M.C. work, since its very beginning, he held the pastorate of Saint Augustine Church for the Colored in Louisville, Kentucky, eleven and one-half years, and he is one of the out- standing few who have been deemed worthy of the highest award given by the C.S.M.C. national ofiice-the Paladin Cross. The A.I.C. Unit considers it a very special privilege to have had Father Dudine delegated by the National Secretary, the Right Reverend Edward Freking, to bestow the honors on the Paladin Studies' Class. In his sermon, the Reverend Speaker stressed the necessity of personal sacriiice for the cause of the missions. Once again Study-Sacrifice-Prayer was the theme-if souls are to be won for the Sacred Heart. After the Crusade Pledge to Mary, Queen of May, Benediction with the Most Blessed Sacrament and Holy God closed the exercises. The Crusaders felt especially gratified to see Father Dudine present the Paladin Jewel to his own brother, Father Charles, and to his sister, Sister M. Frederica, Moderator. The A.l.C. Unit procured these two Jewels and presented them as tokens of their esteem and respect.

Frederica, Moderator, with Miss Zelma Wethington, President, and Miss Betty Rose Egloif, Secretary, and Miss Wilma Bezy, went to Saint Mary of the Woods to help organize or form the Local Conference of the Indianapolis Diocese. The A.I.C. Mission Unit had been working toward this event for two years, and all feel gratified at the fruition of their prayers and endeavors. Louisville Arch-Diocesan Rally The members of the Paladin Jewel class were singularly honored by the privilege of attending the Arch-diocesan C.S.M.C. Rally in Louisville. A Field Mass on the campus of Christ the King Church opened the day's program. All other sessions were held in the hippodrome of the State Fair Grounds. The principal speaker of the day was the Right Reverend Edward A. Freking, National Secretary-Treasurer of the Catholic Students' Mission Crusade. Mission Social Last year the Crusaders were busy making quilt and comfortsg this year fancywork and sewing was the program. Every Friday evening was "sewing circle" time for nearly 100 Crusaders of the A.I.C. Much was accomplished. Many of the articles were disposed of at the mission social May 21. Others are being sent to needy Missions to help out on their socials and bazaars. The Mission social here was a singular success, for which every A.I.C. Crusader thanks every other Crusader as well as all others who helped the work along. Two More Mission Speakers One evening about the middle of May the Crusaders were summoned to the Assembly Hall to hear the Reverend Father Spaulding. No second invitation was needed as the A students had been waiting all year for our Street Preachers. Last September we thought there couldn't be any other Street Preacher like Father Levin of Oklahoma but now we know that we have the genuine type of Street Preacher right here at home May 28, brought a very interesting talk by the Reverend Charles Dudxne O S B and by Sister M. Vita, O.S.B., of Dakota. The following day Sister Vita met the students informally. Crusaders and Sister Missionary and Sister Moderator had a big Round Table Conference resulting in a major decision on the part of Crusaders Next Christ mas we're going to give a party for the Belcourt Indian Mission Cafholif Uqction SODALITY The Sodalists of 1938 and 1939 The spirit of the Sodality has again permeated the life and the activities of the students at the A.I.C. This goodly spirit has increased year by year since its introduction in 1928. Its fruits are far-reaching. The saying that "where the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin is established and Hourishing, there vocations increase" can truly be said of the A.I.C. The follow- ing is the record of Religious Vocations since 1928: 1927 Esther Walsh . . . . .......... Sister M. Virginia 1929 Rosalia Brenner ............ . . Sister M. Evangela 1930 Edna Mae Walbaum ........... Gertrude Schiff ....... . . Dorothy Schultheis .... . . Stella Payne .................. 1931 . . Sister M. Urban . . Sister M. Henry . Sister M.

Regis Class of 1939 The class of 1939 claims for itself the honor of giv- ing to the cause of Religion the greatest number of applicants. In May, 1938, Mary Ruth Gramelspacher entered the Novitiateg in June, Jeanne Davis and Annette Ackerman 3 in September, Dorothy Kohn, Julia Busam, and Helen Priceg in October, Rita Kress. Margaret McCarthy of the class of 1938 entered in September 1938 and Imelda Schenk of the same class entered December 8, 1938. Mary Kissel, a sophomore, entered in September 1938. Therefore, of the thirteen postulants who were in- vested J une 12, 1939, the A.I.C. can justly claim ten. Investing Ceremonies On Monday, June 12, 1939, at 8:30 o'clock, the In- vesting ceremonies took place in the Convent Chapel. The ten A.I.C. girls together with their names in Religion are listed below: Mary Ruth Gramelspacher ....... Sister M. Anna Annette Ackerman ....... . . . Sister M. Francine Jeanne Davis .. ..... ..... S ister M. Wilma Dorothy Kohn ..... .. . Sister M. Generose Julia Busam . .. ..... Sister M. Ethel Helen Price ...... ..... S ister M.

Sister Mary George Sodality Oilicers In May, 1938, the student body unanimously elected Annette Ackerman as Prefect of the Sodality for the following year. However, upon her announcing that within two weeks after the close of school she would be in the Novitiate, it became necessary to cast votes again. The Prefect Miss Wilma Davis then received the majority vote and accepted the honorable position as prefect. Wilma has truly lived up to the ideals of her posi- CATHOLIC ACTION tion and has kept the Sodality spirit above par. By her good example she has led the student body to an active love for the interests of Mary. Wilma's good example has gone farther still. She not only told others how to serve God and His Blessed Mother, but she went ahead and showed how best it can be done. The Student Spiritual Council The Student Body then elected Mary Schnur, as- sistant prefectg Frances Bacon, secretary, Lillian Stippler, treasurerg Betty Jane Braun, Chairman of Our Lady Committee, Geneva Spayd, chairman of the Eucharistic Committee 5 Mary Schnur, chair- man of the Poster Committeeg Mary Louise Pirnat, chairman of the Literary and Publicity Committee, and Edith Schneider, chairman of the Social Com- mittee. Prefect Enters Novitiate On the day of her graduation, June 4, Wilma ex- changed her white graduation cap and gown for the cap and cape of a postulant. Wilma will now pre- pare herself for the life of a Religious and will re- ceive the Benedictine habit next June. A Companion A week after Wilma's entrance into the Novitiate a Junior of the A.I.C., Margaret Rose Walsh, also donned the black cap and cape. The Alma Mater wishes them both God's blessing and much happiness. Our Lady of Grace To remind us that we are always Children of Mary, we have a beautiful statue of the Blessed Virgin, enshrined in a canopy of gold with flowers and vigil lights decorating her throne. The girls have found it a haven of rest from the turmoil of the day. First Sodality Meeting The first oflicial Sodality meeting was held Satur- day evening, October 15. Our Reverend Chaplain, Father William Walker, 0.S.B., blessed the statue of Mary, Our Mother, and thus opened the program. The officers were installed and a prayer was said for the candidates who were to become Sodalists on December 8. Then Father William spoke a few words on how much Mary really means to us. Im- mediately after Rosary and Benediction, the opening meeting was held in the Assembly. It was based upon the Semester Outline. The C. B. C. for the month of October: "Virgin, Mary, Mother of Jesus, make us saints," was stressed. The officers and student body seemed very earnest and sincere. Sodality Dance Curlers were taken down, dresses donned and soon everybody was ready for the first Sodality dance of the semester. The dance was held in the Recreation Room, artistically decorated and arranged for the occasion. The girls danced to the music of the student orchestra, composed of Peggy Wissel and Mary Catherine Finis, violinistsg Anne Wissel, pianistg Marian Forster, saxophonist, and Mary Louise Pir- nat, drummer. Betty Lou Miles took the respon- sibility of maestro and led the orchestra through their capers. Betty Alvey and Betty Lou Miles gave their vocal numbers generously. At intermission a floor show was staged in which Betty Ann Smith contributed a novelty tap. Mar- jorie Rietman made a hit with her sweet soprano voice. Ice cream and cake were served after which dancing was resumed until the curfew sent them all scurrying to bed. The dance was opened and ended most appropriate- ly with "Mother Beloved." To complete the per- fect picture, before retiring the girls knelt before the statue of our Blessed Mother and recited "Night is Falling." The Feast of Christ the King To celebrate the beautiful feast of Christ, the King, a program was given the evening preceding the feast. The statue of the King of Kings was embanked in a bower of flowers. To blend the colors more per- fectly a spotlight was focused on the scene. The Eucharistic Committee, with Geneva Spayd as chair- man, gave an interesting program. Geneva was assisted by Martha Hentz, Emma Jane Parkinson, Mary Schnur, and Betty Braun. After the talks were given the Freshmen and Sophomores took the Pledge of the Handmaids of the Blessed Sacrament and received their pins. The Seniors, too, received the Sodality pins, an annual affair looked forward to with great eagerness by them. 3 i 1 f Pl I X 'I 7 The Shrine Of Our Blessed Mother JULIA BUSAM MARY RUTH GRAMEI.SPACHI'lR .IEANNE DAVIS A.

Sister Therese, the guest speaker, gave a most delightful talk on Catho- lic literature. Entertainment was provided by Anne Wissel who played the Italian dance, Tarrantello, on the cello. Then followed a trio by Sister Mary Robert, Margaret and Ann Wissel, playing Beetho- ven's composition, "Trio in C minor," and "In a Rose Garden." Pep songs completed the program. The Feast of the Immaculate Conception This year the 8th of December, feast of the Immacu- late Conception claims for itself the biggest and best celebration ever held at the A.I.C. First and Solemn Communion Two girls, Betty Ann and Billy Ruth Alvey, of Evansville, Indiana who were converts to our holy Religion since last Easter made their Solemn Com- munion. Two other girls, Betty Borum of Indianapolis, Indiana and Betty Myers of Evans- ville, Indiana were baptized Sunday afternoon, December 4, in St. Ferdinand Church and received their First Holy Communion on December 8. Betty Borum having been professed in another religion had to make a public profession of faith in the Catholic Religion. This she did on Saturday afternoon in the presence of the Sisters and her friends. Immaculate Conception Feast At 6 o'clock Mass all the girls went to Holy Com- munion. They had a short retreat from Wednesday noon to Thursday at breakfast. Then at 8 o'clock there was Solemn High Mass with Father Hugh Schuck, O.S.B., celebrantg Father Bernardine Shine, O.S.B., deacong and Father William Walker, O.S.B., subdeacon. Father Bernardine gave the ser- mon which, it is needless to say, was eloquent, im- pressive, and inspiring. At Communion time the four communicants were escorted to the altar by Wilma Davis, prefect of the Sodality and Lillian Stippler, treasurer. The two oftlcers wore their white caps and gowns. CATHOLIC ACTION The ceremony was beautiful and touching. The com- municants wore white dresses and long white veils and had wreaths of baby breath flowers. After Mass, breakfast was served to them in the guest dining room where also their dinners were taken. There were several relatives and friends present to enjoy the dinner with them. Sisters Victoria and Leandra had the table and refectory decorated beautifully. Large Class Enters Sodality After the singing of Vespers Father Hugh Schuck gave the Sodalists to be a very interesting lecture on the dignity and obligation of being true Sodalists. Thereupon forty-four girls requested admittance into the Sodality. Father William Walker, chaplain, blessed the medals and admitted them into the Sodality. This, as you know, is always an impressive ceremony. Close of the Day In order to have the eventful day close in a fitting way, the Seniors prepared a program under the direction of Sister Cyrilla. The Glee Club sang the Ave Maria. A playlet-"The Spirit of the Sodality" was presented. The orchestra provided the pep for the occasion. After all was said and done, it ended as beautifully as it began. Truly the 8th of Decem- ber at the A.I.C. is a memorable day. Three Days With God The annual three-day retreat at the A.I.C. was con- ducted this year by Reverend Benedict Moellers, O.F.M. The retreat opened on Thursday evening, January 26 at 7:15 after semester exams. In his first meditation Father Moellers stressed the three- fold purpose of the retreat: to teach us to think, to teach us to love God, and to practice these through Catholic Action. It is a time set aside to talk to God. Father Moellers expressed the idea in these words: "Lord, God, it is good for us to be here." He then continued, "We, the students of the A.I.C. were chosen from all eternity to make this retreat whereas there are millions of other boys and girls in the world who will never have this great opportunity. It is 'good for us to be here' and we should carry this good to those who have never experienced it." CATHCLIC ACTION VOCATION WEEK Sunday in Vocation Week On Sunday evening, March 12, the grand opening of vocation week was held in the Assembly. Father William opened the program with a brief talk on vocations and immediately after that the Seniors presented a short play entitled, "In Life's Glad Morn," a play based on the Religious Life. Monday in Vocation Week On Monday night we had the pleasure of hearing Miss Helen Heinrich, class of 1930, speak on Nurses' Training. She stressed the qualifications for becoming a good Catholic nurse and referred to Florence Nightingale, the ideal of all nurses. She particularly emphasized the fact that a nurse must be sympathetic, yet firm, and above all, willing to make sacrifices. Most outstanding in her talk was the religious aspect of a good Catholic nurse. The good accomplished by a conscientious nurse is far- reaching for time and for eternity. It was evident that all the girls enjoyed this lecture, and we hope that the girls now aspiring to the nurse's life, will live up to the example that Miss Heinrich has put before them. Tuesday in Vocation Week Tuesday evening opened with a number of tableaux depicting the story of "Mother Love," beginning when love began " 'neath the bridal veil" and reached its climax when the mother met our Blessed Mother. First Episode-The Bride "This love began 'neath a bridal veil. So like a calla lily She seemed on her bridal day That even the touch of an angel's wing Might waft her quite away." Second Episode-Mother and Child Fifth Episode-Child's First Holy Communion "No greater joy has ever been known, as when Christ first enters a soul, to make His home." Sixth Episode-Child's First Prom "What is lovelier to the eye, than a glowing, danc- ing butterfly?" Seventh Episode-Graduation from High School "Your joy is my joy And every beating of your heart Is the echo of my love for you. Today you stand on the threshold Of new adventures, new loves, new desires, too, And always from a distance I shall watch Your happiness come like the morning dew." Eighth Episode-Child Going Away to College "You seem much older now That deeper thoughts are in your mind And college halls are the paths you tread- But you are not old to me, for in the deepness of your eyes I still see the light of a child's surprise." Ninth Episode-College Graduation "Don't forget that when college days are through, then life really begins for you." UNO greater gift has ever left heaven, than when Tenth Episode-One Child's Spiritual Marriageg to a mother a child is given." Third Episode-Mother Teaching Child to Pray "When a child begins to pray, even the angels stop to listen to what it has to say." Fourth Episode-Mother Sending Child to School "Oh little hands so eager to catch Life's unknown mysteries, Oh eyes of wonder that till now have known But beauty and truth- I send you forth, child of my heart, To school, into the world to learn your part." Another Child's Earthly Marriage "ls it hard for me to understand?" you ask, dear, No, not hard since you have made me plainly see That you are Christ's bride to be- His, because He bent your will To follow Him up Calvary's Hill g He made your heart to take its rest Against His tender, loving breast. He made your soul to be with Him And shut out every worldly whim. Hard to understand? No, not hard, child of my heart, For He seems to say to me, "She has chosen the better part." But there is one thing which only you can under- stand And that is the wondrous depths of your bliss When your Bridegroom gives to you His kiss." "A bride is like a iiower that has just bloomed." 6 Xxx OPHOMORE CLASS -1 5 V'-e.-4 I I Ill IIIUIIIIHII ' XIIH XIIII II 'III ,I In-HxI-ImlI-nluww-1' I lIll'I l1.ll.,. .I. XI.xlx XI.

Twelfth Episode-Meeting of the Earthly Mother with the Blessed Mother "Mary standing on purity's knoll, is reflected in every mother's soul." After this series of tableaux, Father Cornelius Waldo, O.S.B., gave a most appropriate talk on the Blessed Virginf He described her beautifully, com- paring her hair to the gold of the sun, the stars in the Heavens to her eyes, and all the love of the Cherubim and Seraphim to the love in Mary's heart. As a fitting climax to such a splendid talk he ended with the following tribute to youth: How beautiful is youth, how bright it gleams With its illusions, aspirations and dreams. Book of beginning, story without end- Each maid a heroine, each man a friend. Why, all power is in its hands, No danger daunts it, no fear withstands. In its sublime audacity of faith 'Be thou removed' it to the mountains saith. And with ambitious feet secure and proud Ascends the ladder to its God, mounted on a cloud." u Wednesday in Vocation Week On Wednesday evening of Vocation Week we were honored by the presence of the Very Reverend An- selm Schaaf, O.S.B., rector of the Major Seminary at St. Meinrad, Indiana. Father Anselm gave some excellent advice on the life of a Religious. He point- ed out the joys that are to come. He also explained the type of girl who is fitted for the convent, and the sacrifices she would have to make. In his close Fa- ther Anselm said, "Don't all enter the convent to- morrow, but think, pray, and then if you are con- vinced that you have the call, answer it, but by all means don't iight a vocation." Thursday in Vocation Week Thursday evening a short playlet entitled "Life's Gift Shop" preceded the interesting talk given by the Right Reverend Abbot Ignatius Esser, O.S.B., of St. Meinrad, Indiana. After his talk on marriage Father Abbot gave a brief synopsis of his visit in Europe and his talks with Theresa Neumann with whom he had occasion to visit. CATHOLIC ACTION Friday in Vocation Week Friday evening of Vocation Week was devoted to the achievements of the Indian and Negro Study Clubs of the C.S.M.C. directed by Martha Hentz and Wilma Davis. An account of the evenings project is given in the C.S.M.C. news. Saturday in Vocation Week Saturday evening a most glorious week was brought to a close with various tableaux of the vocations. The nurse, teacher, bride, nun, and mother all lent an atmosphere of finis to such a wonderful week here at the A.I.C. which will not soon be forgotten by those who are in earnest about their vocation. It is a deep, heartfelt gratitude that each and everyone of us has for those who helped to make this past week such a grand success. The following is a sketch of the above mentioned series of tableaux entitled "The Highways of Life." The Highways of Life Tableau I-The Nurse "The world grows better year by year Because some nurse, in her little sphere, Puts on her apron and smiles and sings, And keeps on doing the same old things." Tableau II-The Teacher "Just give me a nook, a board, and a book, And thirty young healthy boys, Who are eager to learn, yet to fun sometimes turn, And I'll never mention the noise. Or girls, if you choose, with untainted views, Of their place in the heavenly plan. For the surest gauge of the tone of an age Is the homage they claim from man. For grace and wit, and life and grit, And all the joys that be, Where wisdom's wealth, and work is health, The old school-room for me." Tableau III-The Bride "Let me, I pray thee, meet the little misunder- standings and cares of my new life bravely. Be with me as I start on my mission of womanhood, and stay Thou my path from failure all the way. Walk Thou with us even to the end of our journey." CATHOLIC ACTION Tableau IV-The Nun You ask me why I gave My heart to Christ I can reply Listen, while I tell you why. My heart was drawn at length To seek His Face. I was alone I had no resting place, I heard of how He loved me With a love of depth so great, Of height so far above all human ken I longed such love to share And sought it there Upon my knees in prayer." Tableau V-The Mother "Carve me an angel, sculptor, Carve us a woman, old and grave, Wrinkles that tell of sorrow, lines that the laughs have leftg Give her the knotted fingers no longer quick and deft, Bend her with the stress of toiling, bow her with weight of years, Show us the golden beauty wrought of her smiles hall. The Crowning of the May Queen took place out on the lawn outside the chapel. Wilma Davis of Columbus, Indiana, Prefect of the Sodality was the May Queen. Wilma wore a blue taffeta silk formal with hoop effect skirt and a three-yard length veil. As soon as the Queen, her attendants, and maid reached the throne, the Juniors did the May-pole dance. The streamers were blue and white. Then the Queen was crowned and hailed "Queen of the May." After the Alma Mater Song was sung, the Queen thanked the students for the consideration shown her, but Wilma added that there was one far more worthy to be Queen. The group then marched into the chapel singing "Ave Maris Stella." The graduates entered the sanctuary and encircled the Statue of Mary. They recited a special Act of Con- secration for May. Reverend Father William then spoke impressively of devotion to Mary. After Fa- ther's talk the students sang the crowning hymn and tears, during which time Wilma removed her crown and Tell in the stone and Story, how she is wan 5. d placed it upon the brow of our Blessed Mother. worn Then the Seniors filed past the statue and each placed Through all her self-denial for the ones that s - 9' red rose at Marys feet' The other attendants has borne lso put their bouquets of snapdragons into a large This is an angel' sculptor.

A special breakfast was served in the girls dining room. Each student was then presented with a beautiful picture of our Blessed Mother as a farewell token from the Faculty. ...uhm i . 1 E 'l'llI'I HIGIIWXYS OF LIFI' w A P1 ' F x z, 1 . ,.,, .

A very beautiful and inspiring address was given which will linger long in the thoughts of these graduates. After the Act of Consecration, the Seniors received their diplomas. Benediction with the Most Blessed Sacrament followed and the Hymn, Holy God, closed the Senior cere- monies for the class of 1939. Address by Father Cornelius Waldo, 0.S.B. If there is anything striking about Trinity Sunday, it is the emphasis placed on the teaching phase of Holy Mother Church's activities-an emphasis easily detected in the Gospel of today's Holy Mass. The question may well be asked on this your graduation day, "What is the precise definition of Christian education?" Verily, the proper function of any system of education, worthy of the name, is to bring about a change for the better in human kind. In short, it is simply a process of conversion, whereby rudeness yields to culture, the immature is replaced by the mature, and the individual is progressively freed from the domination of this lower nature and gains the mastery over himself, by reason of the fact, that his will becomes accustomed to deciding, not at the mere behest of immediate selfishness, but rather in strict accord with the dictation of a reason enlightened by Christian thought. The tiny babe, standing bewildered at the very threshold of life, is certainly not capable of caring for himself in human society, in spite of the fact that he is definitely a social being, the infant and the growing child learn to adjust themselves to the standards of the modern and complicated civilization in which they are forced to live. This implies that a complete revolution, deep and vital changes, must needs be wrought in the mind and heart of youth. You ask, what is educa- tion? The answer is simple, for the sum total of these drastic changes can be styled education in the strict sense of the word. Sooner or later in the life of every mortal there comes a perplexing question. "Why does man exist? What is his nature, just what sort of a being is he?" These are the questions upon which the very universe hinges, they are the first and last questions of life. Out of his own consciousness man must ask these questions. What is more, he must find an adequate answer, otherwise his life becomes sterile and fruitless. There is no answer sufficiently adequate, Catholicism maintains, except it be in the doctrine taught, revealed, and actually lived by that Man among men Who was in very truth a God Hinislelf, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the wor . Even to the layman the implications of this particular view of life are indeed incalculably manifold. They do positively extend back- ward and forward through all time even to the gates of Eternityg in more or less detail they touch upon every aspect of life. What does it matter what a man believes, one hears day in and day out in this age of alleged pragmatic sanctions. There must needs be but one answer. It is the only thing does matter, unless essential lunacy is the very part and parcel of man's intellectual process. The stream of belief flows into the sea of action, determines and directs action, only by an act that abdicates reason can it be set aside. Man's entire scale of values is placed at stake. For the moment consider the answer to the first question under discussion as founded upon Catholic belief. Why does man exist? Man exists simply because God made him to know Him, to love Him, to serve Him on earth and to be happy with Him for all eternity in heaven. Every Catholic child learns this truth very early in life, and as life goes on, this thought takes on a much deeper and fuller meaning. It is only in the mind of the Creator that the secret of human destiny can be ascertained. Man exists pre- cisely because his Creator wants him to do so, and God wants man to exist for purposes that, even without aid, reason can faintly grasp, as did the great mind of Plato and Aristotle, but which the Almighty conde- scended to show us more completely through Divine Revelation, and in due time through His own Divine Son. Our Saviour established the Church to be as it were the living witness COIVIIVIENCEIVIENT to the truths so graciously presented by His Heavenly Father to man-yes, the Church was to be an infallible interpreter. Tender Mother that she is, the Bride of Christ on earth brings to the Catholic mind a deep knowledge of the Godhead. Not only does she present to man the dogmatic truths of her holy Faith, but, in the sphere of morals, she leads him on through the ways of virtue that a life of service born of heavenly love may inerit for him the happiness of an eternity of ove. The second question under consideration is, "What is man, what is his nature?" Once again, for the Catholic mind, the answer is not so difficult. Man is not a mere accident in the universe, the product of blind forces stirring the slime. He is far superior to any- thing in the animal kingdom, he is a little less than the angels. In short, he possesses a body, but the life principle in him is a spirit- ual immortal soul. Nor is it a mere fanciful thought that man has been made to the image and likeness of his God. Very likely, it is not altogether surprising to you that there are numerous men and women, totally different from you, living in the world you are to face on the morrow-men and women whose philosophy of life can not be defined as otherwise than wholly secular. They have long since arrived at the conclu- sion that man has no destiny beyond the tomb and that the reason for existence must be sought somewhere in the interim between the cradle and the grave. They admit readily enough that Christ lived centuries ago. How- ever they regard Him merely as an historical religious champion. In spite of the influence Christianity is bound to exert upon them, they refuse to solve the great questions of life by the tenets of the followers of Christ. Asceticism, they hold in disdain, and they look for happiness not in self-denial, but rather in its antithesis, self-indulgence. What a strict line of demarcation there is between the Catholic whose philosophy of life and philosophy of education are based upon self- conquest and the philosophies of those world- lings whose ideals are purely secular! The very idea of there being anything in common between these two camps is positively ridicu- lous. The two systems of education differ in content, method and aim. The one is purely of this world, the other cooperates with the grace of God to transform a child of the flesh into a child of the spirit. You may well be proud of the school you have been privileged to attend, the Academy which is your Alma Mater. A brief survey of the history of our glorious country reveals the fact, startling to many, that the private school and the Catholic school preceded the public school system, so prevalent in this our day. Sad to say, because of its attitude of neutrality in things religious, the public school has produced a generation educated, it is true, but not well rounded. Thorough edu- cation demands that religion be woven into the very warp and woof of the child's life. Christianity cannot be reduced to a mere rallying point for Sunday sentiment. Religion must needs be the very heart and soul of the discipline, curriculum, and atmosphere. If the growing child is to be thoroughly educated for time and eternity. Even such a mundane thing as the study of mathematics demands a religious touch. Between the covers of a modern textbook of mathematics, there is contained plenty of social and economic doc- trine which must be studied in the light of the teaching of Christ. A numerical figure is, after all, a social institution that really plays an important part in the thought and action of daily life. Hence, the contention that absolutely nothing in the educational field can be neglected, where the religious side is concerned, is not bizarre and pietistic. In all things the truth of Christ must be established. As the body must have food or it will perish, so, too, the mind must be sustained: its food is knowledge, its very life is truth. "What is truth ?" His pagan judge asked of Christ Himself, and there was no answer. Indeed, no answer was necessary, a few hours be- fore, while at supper with His followers, our Divine Saviour had said: "My word is truth." He had also said to the multitude surrounding him, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life." Obviously, we are not dealing here with truth in the scientific sense, of truth departmentalized. We are concerned with ultimate truth, and elemental reality. The working value and the practical success of the Christian principle in education have been amply demonstrated in each and every age of the glorious history of the Church, from the very time when the first followers of the saintly Benedict left the world yet dried up the swamps of a frontier Europe on their way to heaven, and either invented or preserved whatever they found to be worth while in a decaying civilization torn asunder by selfish men who cared not to concern themselves about anything beyond the mar- 'NN-Sn 1 P jg GRAIJUATION .IUNIC 4, 1939 Tn-ns PHOTO Possum: BY COURTESY OF ACADEMY IMMACULATE CONCEPTION 1 ! E i gent of this world, down to this, our own twentieth century, when some of the names which have become part and parcel of the very terminology of the scientific world, espe- cially the electrical and chemical world, are listed originally on the Baptismal records of the village churches of Europe. The world of science boasts of no greater name than that of Pasteur, yet it was the boast of Pasteur that the more he advanced in scien- tific knowledge, the deeper his faith became. Truly, there is no conflict between science and religion. The late Holy Father in his ency- clical on Catholic Education of youth presents the following beautiful thought. "The true Christian, the product of Christian education, is a supernatural man who thinks, judges and acts constantly and consistently in ac- cordance with right reason, illumined by the supernatural light of the example and teach- ing of Christ, in other words, to use the cur- rent term, the true and finished man of char- acter." Dear Graduates, in a way this day marks the close of your carefree girlhood hours. All that is best in our holy religion has been showered upon you in the course of your edu- cation. In your tender years, kind parents guided youg later on you were privileged to be under the care of saintly women vowed to God, living in the very shadow of the sanctu- ary. I would I could be more optimistic as you assume life's responsibilities. But, that were treasong I dare not. You are entering upon a world that is fairly seething in tur- moil, In God's name hold fast to the only stable treasure you can hope to rescue from prevalent chaotic conditions. I refer, of course, to your holy religion. Once you are established in your own home, make it a veri- table sanctuary for the Christianity in whic you have been so well instructed As you step out into the world of v or- row, it will not be necessary for y . fi be a keen observer to discover the e if of the titanic catastrophe which has .- llen man deliberately turned away fr is G their happiest moments of ' -: ism ur oets may sing of things as t y houl be' our artists may cover their c vasses with some Madonnas, not as hey really are bu as they mighthhave b 3 idealists pQagiing COMMENCEMENT take poem and picture, dream fancy, and sup- plant them with the sordid prose that is life's reality. Hark back, if you will, on the wings of fancy to that time years, aye centuries ago, in the agelessness of eternity when the day of crea- tion did at last arrive. It was just such a beautiful day as this, your Graduation day. The sky was mantled with a robe of peerless blue, the earth fairly laughed in song and gladnessg indeed, the first gentle spring had come, heralded by the melodious harmony of feather songsters. Looking down the vista of time, the Mind of God beheld each and everyone of you, from all eternity He had planned you as you stand before Him today in the beauty of your young womanhood. Graces, he has showered upon you in abundance. There is only one sentiment for your heart to hold as you come forward for your diplomas, that is the sentiment of gratitude. ' In the past you have never been left alone. There have been gentle parents, gentle nuns, the flickering sanctuary lamp to denote His ever abiding presence to console you, and last but not least, you have always been able to turn to her whose client you have always been. Nor will you be alone in the fu- ture, because our dear Saviour and His Blessed Mother will never desert you. Hence, do not be overwhelmed when you behold in horror the dirty river of wrong mingling its filthy waters with the sweet stream of right. Keep your vision aloft where a bright star is forever scintillating in the heavenly vault. She is our tainted nature's solitary boast, and she is the mother of each and everyone of you.
