JOHN HENRY CARDINAL NEWMAN
This year has been a critical year in the history ot civilization, witness-
ing the end oi a terrible war and the dawn ol a new era whose possibili-
ties stagger the imagination.
Within the Catholic Church also, we have celebrated a memorable
event. This year marlis the hundredth anniversary oi the conversion of
one of the Churchis most renowned Catholic leaders.
Un October 8, 1845, a rainswept night, Littlemore, England, witnessed
one ot the greatest events in its history. Father Dominic baptized a man
whom all England had come to lcnow as a fellow ot Oriel, rector ot St.
lViary's, and the leader ot the famous Oxford Movement . . . John Henry
From this century-old conversion the twentieth century searcher alter
truth has found comfort and the Catholic student has found in Newman's
conversion the inspiration ot an absorbing love ot God, an heroic courage
ot conviction, and a scholarship that begets Catholic leadership.
John Henry Cardinal Newman was a hero. May this needed heroism
find counterpart in us as Hi'ieart spealceth to heart."
lhe class ol IO46 began its high school
years at Villa lvlontemar during the war-
striclten year ol 1942. ln our last and most
precious year Uur Lady ol' Peace has
hrought world peace to lighten the pages ol
our memory hoolc and malce dearer all the
recollections we hold of our days spent on
this beloved campus.
VILLA lVloNTEMixR will be our record ot sweet
memories to play again lor us the music of dear
lriendships, happy alternoons on the mile-walk,
picnics at Hthe pointfy evenings at the lnarhecue pit,
dances in the auditorium, quiet chats with the Mas-
ter in chapel.
With this edition of VILLA MONTMEMAR we take
our farewell ol the Academy, and the years that
enlolded the happiest span ol our lives.

Q 9 X ,
To Charles F. Buddy, Bishop of San Diego, we, the class of 1946, re-
spectfully dedicate this volume of happy memories we have shared at
Villa Montemar. We sincerely hope this hook will long remain a loving
trihtite to one who has been to us a constant inspiration, staunch supporter,
and loyal friend. And to us thisivolume will he a constant reminder of the
years spent under the influence of a Catholic education which is so dear
to the heart of our heloved Bishop.

I-HSTCDRY CDF TI-IE ACADEMY
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Car-
ondelet arrived in San Diego on Ap-
ril 18, 1882, at the request ol Father
Antonio Uhach, beloved pioneer-
priest of San Diego, who had made
urgent visits to Carondelet pleading
for Sisters to open a school and to
teach the Mission Indians.
The little community oi four Sis-
ters opened school on May 10, 1882,
in a small frame house on a terrace
overloolcing the hay, registering on
that day twenty-eight girls and two
hoys. On June I5 the first Mass was
celebrated in the small chapel of the
convent which was dedicated to Our
Lady of Peace.
ln 1887 the Academy assumed
large proportions with the completion
of a fully equipped huilding on Third
and A Streets. The Academy on that
site was for thirty-eight years an in-
timate part of the moral and physical
growth of San Diego.
The purchase of beautiful Villa
Montemar was the next step of prog-
ress for the Sisters. This twenty acre
estate with its seven huildings devot-
ed to the finest in educational advan-
tages is a compendium of heauty, a
monument to the sixty-four years of
tireless laloors which the Sisters of
St. Joseph have devoted to Catholic
education in San Diego.

It was rather a frightening day in September. 1942, when our freshman class met
for the first time. We felt our way along the new schedule establishing ourselves as
typical freshmen. Qur first big move was to elect Alicia Dolan to represent us as our
president. Following this came the never-to-be-forgotten three initiation days. As that
was the last year three days were kept officially, we have never been able to seek our
revenge iqittingly. Our production of lulius Caesar was long remembered because of the
corpse which would move at unpredictable moments. Christmas found us with a Well
established Yank Club fulfilling its mission with daily masses and prayers for Padre
O'Mara and his men in the service. This resulted in our first attempt along musical
lines when we changed uGive us some men who are stout-hearted men" to "Give us
some Yanks who are hard-praying Yanksf, From this sprang the experience needed to
make some reconversions on the popular iavorites of the day to praise the seniors at
the breakfast we gave for them.
The sophomore year took us down a notch. We lost some of the importance of being
green, lost creatures. Things got a great deal more difficult: geometry proved a hard
testing ground. This was probably the last year our school work got the necessary en-
thusiasm to keep a large percentage in the HAH bracket. Donna Jean Conner was
elected class president: through her help we managed to give the seniors a chicken-iw
the-rough box lunch following their play, Daddy Longlegs.
With pride and a feeling of Hat last," we took our positions as worthy juniors, elect-
ing Jean Buehler our class president. Early in the year we ordered our pins, then our
junior dresses. Vvhen they arrived, we knew what Hthis is worth waiting tor" meant.
Toward the end of the year we revised the old tradition and gave the seniors the prom
While they conceded to give the necessary labor required for the first edition of Villa
Montemar. Field Day in the middle of May saw our class sporting many favorites along
athletic lines. Our class showed the school the meaning of real teamwork when we re-
ceived the school championship in basketball. Being upper classmen was given a new
significance when class day with its prophecies and wills made its appearance. At grad-
uation, which was both a happy and sad event, we proved our good taste in liormals and
with pride we lifted flower entwined canes to form the arch for the seniors. '
The senior year arrived sooner than we had expected. We found that being seniors
terminated a wonderful part oi our lives. Autumn found us inspired with an unusual
idea for the Catholic Book Week display. The judges liked our upoetry is the Stardust
of Literature" and presented us with first place.
ln the Christmas play, O Holy Night, the seniors showed their dramatic ability. Qur
social calendar was begun with a Weiner roast out by the swimming pool. The '46-'47
Club dances filled in week-ends frequently.
Our three day retreat given by Father David Daze holds some of our most pleasant
and penetrating memories. Those days spent with Christ and His Mother will be tort-
resses in the days to come.
February 25 was a red-letter day in every seniorss life. Ditch-day was one of those
waited lor dreams-come-true. 'lille trilme boarded tlie lxus at nine oteloelc, Laguna lmound.
Snow fights. llamtmurgers, and song made up our day. Un our return we stopped at Pinf
Valley tor dinner. Qur day was completed wtien we toppled out ol tlie lmus at ye olde
alma mater around seven.

JEANETTE THERESA BARRACK
New this year, Jeanette has pivoted into
our midst and has showered her delightful
Albuquerque personality among us. Always
consulted for the newest dance steps, she is
rated as one of the very best dancers here-
abouts. She is one who has valiantly strug-
gled through four years of Latin, but claims.
Nl like it even if I don't understand itn.
Vvhen the soft strains of "pomp and Cir-
cumstancen have died away, she will find

MARY FRA , y
As our Katy Cornell, Ma ,S
tresses can usually be seen any re ose
to a stage: because of her drama c abi ities
she was chosen to play the flighty Jehanne-
ton in the outstanding production, The
Vagabond King. Her flaming loclcs have
graced our halls for four years and many
histronic attempts have had her support, in-
cluding two Saint's productions, Antic
Spring and The Sunshine Twins. Two
years membership in the Glee Club, a typi-
cal red-headed temperament, and an ability
to get all her homework done during the first
period are her distinguishing characteristics.
Her aspirations lean toward college and an
lVl.D. alter her name. Heres hoping her fu-
ture starts with Ucalling Doctor Boyd".
MARY TERESA BREITMEYER
Maryys long, graceful, sweeping dips won
recognition long heiore she floated off with
the title, "Queen ol? the A.S.B." Seemingly
unsurmountalole difficulties do not discour-
age this damsel. As right hand man of the
Sodality Preiect, she has held a place of re-
sponsibility and authority and has eagerly
urged many Sodality schemes to comple-
tion. Qne of her singular duties is bringing
the Legion oi Decency lists to light. Fondest
desires are wrapped up in a convertible and 4,
a certain Saintsman with a Briar when
Spanish, swim 'ng, and tohogganing aren't
clamori g for r immediate attention.

RUTH VIOLA BRENNAN
Ruthie has made a name for herself
through her years here hy her writing ability
-which, fortunately, includes poetry: after
holding position as class secretary in her jun-
ior year she hecame our Southern Cross cor-
respondent. Always smiling, she radiates
friendship and it is not unusual to he greeted
by that cheerful grin and uBon jour". One
cannot, however, rememher Ruth without
Peggy, for they have heen constant compan-
ions since the freshman year. Ruth is also
recnognized for her artistic ahility. We can
well understand her amhition as a commer-
cial artist, hut suspect that somewhere along
the line of her career, she will he snatched

ALICE MARGARET CANFIELD
A tervent camera fiend, Alice delights in
making ghost pictures and then utterly re-
ruses to explain her tantalizing technique.
She has been perfecting this atrocious fthose
who have been caught unaware will agree
instantly, avocation for the eight years
ot attendance here. Occasionally a rare gem
is produced and momentarily Alice enjoys
an honorary position of glory.
Her willing cooperation in '46 Club attairs
and other projects have made her indispen-
sable to our activities. Her parlor ac-
complishments consist ot a classical rendi-
tion ot Chopsticlcs and ot conversation tinted
with the escapades of a certain little brother,
DONNA JEAN CONNER
As Co-editor ot Villa Montemar, Donna
has had an opportunity to utilize her literary
talents and to develop her patience to the
'Ntlf degree. Her quiet, restful charm malces
her a favorite with boarders and day-scholars
alilce. ln retrospect of her tour years here,
two ot which she claims close lcinship with
those happy boarders, they have been paclc
ed with gay memories. Her lovely penman-
ship has been our especial pride and her nat
ural poise has been an inspiration to us.
With perseverance and extraordinary vir
tue, she has survived the unexplored depths
ot the physics lab and the ethereal heights
ot Virgil. "Stars are impassive too".
RITA TEODOSIA CUSTADO
We bave been constantly amazed at
Rita's various extra-curricular activities dur-
ing the past four years. First it was a com-
paratively mild accomplisliment, tennis, in
which site longed to excellg tben slie played
a trump by acquiring a new parlor triclc,
fencing, guaranteed to liven any dull party
sl'1e migbt attend. Seriously, and here it must
be admitted that it is difficult to find Rita in
a serious mood for ber spontaneous nature
craves laughter, slie is destined to do grand
tbings if ber past four years are indicative of
future tendencies. Her level lleadedness and
ber admirable worlc in time G.A.A. are cbar-
acteristics to be envied. We feel sure tliat
ber past record of success affirms our hopes
for a lite full ol continued joys.
GLORIA OFELIA DAVILA
As Mexicoys goodwill ambassador, Glor-
ia lias endeared berself to us all. Besides ber
typical Latin beauty, sbe can boast of a sense
oi bumor fequal to quips in Spanisli and
Englisbl and a liandsome and ambitious
brotlier. About tbe latter we can add tbat be
plans to be a doctor and Gloria expects to
assist liim by training to be a nurse. Poetry
and music top tbe list of time senorita's pet
passions. Next year sbe plans to follow Flor-
rie Nigl1tingale's footsteps getting ber basic
training at tbe Mount. A sweet, amicable
nature bas made ber one of our favorites and
we lcnow that under ber care, time patients
will recuperate rapidly.
ALICIA MARIE DOLAN
Quiet? Reserved? Don't let that angelic
expression mislead you. Under that calm,
sober countenance lurlcs an explosive sense
of humor comparable only to T.N.T.
She has seven years to her credit at Villa
Montemar and has held class presidency for
the first three in succession. The basketball
and volley ball teams have yearly claimed
her as a member: and this will marlc her
third year as a steadfast alto in our Glee.
Alicia's secret desires run into excursions
to Ireland during the summer and the culti-
vation oi handsome ensigns.

IVIARJGRY MARY EVANS
Another tour year member ot our Student
Body, Marjory, our Eucharistic Committee
Chairman, has done much to foster devotion
to our Eucharistic Lord. She was an insti-
gator of a contest which promoted the En-
thronement ot the Sacred Heart and her par-
ticipation in school activities has been whole-
hearted. Her Hacute perceptionitisu tor food
qualities her as our class grocer and it was
through her perservering ettorts that the cuti-
nary end ot our picnics and parties has tween
a success. Her amhition is to he a Pediatrist

PAULINE ELIZABETH FABER
Pauline would like us to helieve that she
is as quiet as a mouse and we shall have to
grant that she is very convincing while we
are loolcing, hut what accounts for the gales
of laughter emitted from those who listen to
her witticisms when we aren't loolcing? Shy
at recitation, she lets herself go on the volley
hall court and really lets Hy some stupen-
dous shots. Giggling Pauline has been a
hoarder for three years and the "dorm" will
he at a loss without her laughter and gaiety.
MARY IRENE FINDLEY
Rated as "tops" hy faculty and students
alilce, Mary Irene has paclced her three years
at Villa Montemar with numerous accomp-
lishments. Her excellent leadership as A.S.B.
president steered us successfully through
the school year. She has acquired singularly
splendid honors in her marine activities with
numerous trophies from some of the most se-
vere swimming contests. Her intricate strolces
and dives have been the highlights of Field
Day. Possessor of a G.A.A. letter, she has
sustained our team through many fierce hat-
tles. For her fine perseverance and guidance
of our Student Body, we Want to award our
own special Distinguished Service Cross.
IVIONA GWENDGLYN FINN
Gwenie, a little on the impish side, has
been seen at O.l...P. for a long time. Recog-
nized by her artistic ability totten displayed
on the posters in our hallsi and by her flare
for dramatics. She has participated in The
Man in the Bowler Hat and has por-
trayed the lead in one of the Christmas
plays, she has supported the Glee Club for
four years with a lovely soprano voice.
Gwen is short with darlc hair and strikingly
elfin features, which are a contrast to her
enormous store of vivacity and mile-long
words. She has successfully held the posi-
tions of secretary in her freshman year and
treasurer in her junior year, and has pains-
talcingly helped to get our annual to press.
When Gwen enters college next year, she
will continue to malce friends and puzzle
them with her professor,s vocabulary.

REGINA MADALINE GLEASON
It must be the lrish in "Gina-Bug" that
causes her to delight in the spectacular, but
UGinaH is what we associate with exotic and
dramatic. Which reminds us, she can chalk
up parts in some prominent productions-1
The Trial of the King, Christmas plays,
and many other outside pageants: the Glee
Club also has her support. Driving is her
chief devotion the moment she escapes the
confining portals, and her chief talent is run-
ning out ot gas in the middle of a teaming
highway. Gina also participated in politics
to the extent of holding the position of secre-
tary in her sophomore year.
JACQUELINE GRACE GRIMM
Making her appearance in our iialls in iier
junior year, Jaclcie lias firmly moulded iier
place in our lnearts. Perhaps slie is best re-
membered for lier constant appeal for tile
Missions and for tier able handling of Chair-
mansliip of time Apostolic Committee: or per-
haps for l1er Bostonian accent fthe latter pre-
sents an excuse for persistent teasingf. Her
slenderness belies the fact tliat eating is tier
favorite pastime. Modeling, Hawaii, and a
pair of silver wings compose tier dreams and
fulfillment seems in time offing.

CAROL BYRD HASELTON
Carol possesses a southern drawl some-
what assuaged by constant relationship with
a Boston accent and two and a half years in
our midst. Her assets number in this order:
one twin sister, Holly, one lucious yacht Knot
entirely hersl, artistic tendencies resulting in
precious little angels, a gorgeous sun-bleach-
ed complexion accumulated by frequent so-
journs at the beach, and a lovely pair of ha-
zel eyes. Carol travels across the bay daily
in order to reach her destination. Plans for
her future are indefinite as yet, but we expect
to see her gay face at college in September
absorbing higher education.
PEGGY EMILE HEMUS
Peggy can hardly be considered entirely
complete without Ruth, so inseparable are
these two. Both excel in literary directions.
Peg has been our Academy correspondent
with the Augustinian during the past year
and has done a splendid job in an unpubli-
cized position. Her fine alto voice has been
a mainstay in the Glee Club tor the past
four years. Future ambitions tend toward av-
ocation as an air line stewardess. We wish
her loads of luck and happy landings.
MARILYN JEAN HICKS
Our blonde, willowy A.S.B. vice-presi-

tic ability, to mention one, which rewarded
her with parts in Antic Springg The Sun-

a lovely soprano voice, which malces her in-
dispensable to the Glee Club. Marilyn is the
proud possessor of a golden basketball and

those close games. Truly, Marilyn is an all-

First impressions are not always lasting:
this is certainly true in Margie,s case for un-
til you hear Marjorie play you really don,t
lmow her. She more than deserves the title,
"Marjorie of the lvoriesn. Without her tal-
ent many of our gatherings would have
lacked that certain enthusiasm that her pres-
ence infuses. Membership in the Glee Club
also gives an outlet for her musical inclina-
tions and she is the center of many a "Jam
Session". We are indebted to her for her
willing cooperation and eager support of
school activities and we shall surely miss
her vibrant personality.
MARY ANN KAISER
The '46 Club owes a year ot success to
the capable guidance ot lvlary Ann. Since
she was elected President, she has helped to
make the '46 Club an active and interesting
club by the unseltish giving ot her time. Her
favorite topic is Ubaclc home" and her con-
versation is mildly flavored with Milwaukee
and snow tights and feather comforters.
Atter three years in this sunny existence

that this is the State. lVlary's friendly counte-
nance, dancing ability, and her contagious

As G.A.A. president, Jean lias stimulated

college and a trip around tile world. Dis-

SHARON EILEEN MCNEECE
Here may we present one of the charming
personalities of the senior class? Sharon's
generous and gracious ways won our admir-
ation and hence we chose her as senior class
president, which office she has more than
capabty fitted. As Ethel Barrymore of the
Patio Players, she has taken character parts
in Antic Spring and The Sunshine Twins.
In her rare moments she squeezes in Debus-

New to our halls in her senior year, Nata-
lie did not talce long to "win friends and
influence people". Her eccentricities run into
wallets, which are in reality miniature pho-
tograph alhums crammed with memories of
midshipmen and June Week at Annapolis.
Her amhition is Bacteriology at William and
Mary, which is an unmaterialized dream as
Gut private, personal suspicion is that her
destiny will involve more than little germ-
letsg perhaps a hig, handsome Germ will
conspire with Cupid and lure this fair maid
GLORIA ALICE PADILLA
Another of our "four year girls", Gloria
has given her taients to many fieids during
her stay at the Villa. Especially known this
y e a r as Sodaiity Literature Committee
Chairman and dispenser of The Catholic
Digest. Gioria also claims a place oi ac-
icnowiedgement in our sports' parade. Twice
runner-up in the Badminton championship,
practicaiiy constant membership in voiiey-
haii and hasicethaii teams, and an enthusi-
astic interest in ice skating makes her an ali-
round outdoor giri.
Gioria confesses that her favorite suhject
is Latin, her pet pastime is dancing, and her
prize accomplishment, a character part in the
College awaits Gioria, and perhaps in the
future a career teaching the familiar phrases

one of those people whose presence is al-

as the "Bell Ringerf' M.J.R. also rings the
hell scholastically and is recognized univers-
ally as one ot the Ucerelarumsn.
It is through her untiring efforts as Co-Ed-

gone to Press. Her cultural accomplishments
include her recitation of the "Hound of

Donna is one of our fixtures, having seven
persevering years to her credit. We shall re-
member her glorious sense of humor, which
has an uniailing way of hurhling up at some
unpredictable and solemn moment in class
or elsewhere. Via the grapevine we hear that
El Cajon hus commuters also daily enjoy
her adolescent outbursts of wit. Qur Dan-
iel Boone of the senior class, Donna has tri-
umphantly led many excursions down the
mile walk as conqueror of the wilderness.
Tremendous plans for college confront her
in September, hut the fervent zeal with
which she has undertaken ciass projects will
carry her on to greater things.

many years here as fingers. Starting in the
sixth grade with horn rims, shess blossomed
into one of our very loveliest. Under accomp-
lishments she can list faithful service with

volleyball teams usually depend upon her
for those last minute winning points. During
this last year, Eve has collected a variety of
objects which she tagged as "Lost and

handled our treasury with competence. Eve's
led a versatile and active life here at Villa
Montemar and certainly we shall miss the
spontaneous enthusiasm with which she un-

That long anticipated, though somewhat dreaded, September day arrived and our
trembling freshmen entered the portals of the Academy of Qur Lady of Peace. Like
other freshmen in years past We turned pate at the mere mention of Initiation. but we
survived the day accompanied by big bows, braids, one shoe, and the feeling that at last
The first glimpses of talent appeared in October when We entertained the Student
Body with a radio show, mrhe Odyssey ot Punyon Jonesu.
In November talent ot a different type emerged during Catholic Book Week. Our
subject, biography, was attractively portrayed in the theme, "Mirrors of Christf,
This year inaugurated the first all freshmen Glee Club which made its appearance
several times during the year.
We are particularly proud of our victory in the Junior-Frosh debate: Resolved: That
the branches ot the armed torces be merged.
Our freshman year has been a happy and a profitable one and We hope that the three
to follow will be patterned on our First one.

PLANNING THE CAMPAIGN
Any 'tttlursctny atternoon atter sctloot one coutct find ttwese otticers anct Committee

A Sodality run hy the Committees was the theme of our Sodality year. The newly ap-
pointed oiliicers and six Committee Chairmen chose to undertake Our Lady,s business
together. The officers were: prefect, Pat Vvardg Vice-prefect, Bonnie Yharrando and
Mary Breitmeyerg Secretary, Alice Lewis: Treasurer, Rosemary Vveseloh. The Commit-
tee Chairmen were: Our Ladygs Committee, Marie Dzajic: Eucharistic, Marjorie Evans:
Apostolic, Jacquelyn Grimmg Mental Prayer, Dorothy Walsh: Literature, Gloria Pa-
dilla: Publicity, Ellen Vvilhoit and Agnes Ann Jones.
Every Thursday alter school found these faithful leaders organizing the next Sodality
meeting: rating current movies according to the Legion of Decency: planning daily ros-
ary, First Friday devotions, monthly Sodality Mass and recitation of the Little Qffice of
the Blessed Mother, and the annual social events. ln addition to these activities the oiiic-
ers decided to initiate Catholic Action Cell Groups within the Sodality. This group
which hecame lcnown as the lnner Circle was organized primarily for girls who were in-
terested in doing extra worlc for Ou Lady. Each Committee had exacting rules for the
memloers hut these tested the metal of the generous volunteers.
Aslc any memher oi Our Lady,s Committee ahout the Scapular and she will quiclcly
and proudly produce it from around her neclc, explaining it in full detail. If you continue
your tallc, she will prohahly convert you to the daily family rosary ranlcs, giving you many
pamphlets concerning the heauty and hlessing ol the rosary, for in that direction do her
The Eucharistic Committee activities included the propagation of Night Adoration, En-
thronement of the Sacred Heart in the home, and deepening love for C h r i st in the
Blessed Sacrament. They sponsored an interesting inter-class contest for the most inspir-
ing hulletin hoard on the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in the home and they also
hrought some interesting speakers to our auditorium.
Primarily a spiritual committee, the Mental Prayer Committee has faithfully supplied
a Weekly mental prayer for Sodality meetings. They too sponsored a Mental Prayer
Contest in Fehruary which was a great success. The Winning prayer was sent to the
Queenys Work. At Christmas time the six memhers sent thirty-five pounds of dehy-
drated food to Europe in answer to the Pope's plea for suffering humanity.
The Apostolic Committee, as the name suggests, was lousy with many things. Provid-
ers ot religious articles at Christmas with their hig sale. producers ot many entertaining
plays including an excellent vocation play, sponsors of the Foreign Missions stamp drive,
collectors ot money for pagan hahies, they soon hecame lcnown as Hmost active".
Vvho provides good Catholic reading matter? Vvho peddles Catholic Digest once a
month? Vvhose main talent is giving literary quizzes? Any Socialist will tell you it,s the
Literature Committee. Besides these little taslqs, they produced a very interesting and
educational program and exhihit for Catholic Press Month.
ln cooperation with all other committees, the talented and versatile Puhlicity Commit-
tee has faithfully filled all requests for advertising Sodality doings. Many original and
heautiful hulletin hoards have declced our halls as a result of their tireless efforts.
The annual Halloween Party tool: place on Qctoher 50. Doughnuts dangling from
streamers, spoolcy cats and craggy witches adorning the walls and a gloom of darlcness
descending over the auditorium gave just the right atmosphere for a most enjoyable oc-
casion. All henetits from this party were donated to the Propagation of the Faith.
ln January the annual reception of all new memhers tool: place. The ceremony,
coupled with that ot the Handmaids oi the Blessed Sacrament, was conducted hy Father
Kiernan, 0.S.A. The girls had heen on prohation lor a month, to prove their worth and
to learn the rules of the Sodality.
The most important event of the year was the retreat which hegan Fehruary 12 and
ended with Mass on Fehruary 15. Quiet settled over the Academy as our Jesuit retreat

The Student Body year opened with Uvvelcome Vveeku which was climaxed hy a very
successlul welcome party. This gave everyone a chance to get acquainted since we had
an unusually large numher ot new faces. Dehates, parties, quizzes and movies were a
iew ol the varied activities that took place as the year progressed.
We were very privileged this year to have secured for our entertainment many talent-
ed artists and speakers. We would like to introduce some of them to you.
The Academy hrightened and louhhled considerably with a visit from the distinguished
poet and author, Allred Noyes. Dr. Noyes, works are quite popular ahout the Villa and
the girls found our English lriend a stirring example of the modern Catholic man of let-
ters. Dr. Noyes spoke oi the modern realistic view of poetry.
To olzler a dashing highlight to the lecture Dr. Noyes recited his most popular poem,
mldhe Highwaymanf, a lilting excerpt from his play, HSherwood,H and a short selection
from the Wliorchhearersu.
Reviews of hooks, hulletins, talks. and discussions topped with a Catholic Book Tea
made Catholic 'Book Vveek a memoralole event. The auditorium was turned into a dis-
play room with each class arranging an exhihit. The exhihits were judged for their orig-
inality and information and the seniors were awarded first prize for theirs on poetry. The
most successful and extensive hook week we have celehated closed with our favorite,
Father Aherne, giving us a lecture on Catholic poetry.
Such favorites as HQne Aloneu and "Only a Rosen were among the songs so heauti-
iully sung hy Joseph Sullivan on his visit to the Villa. Mr. Sullivan is accustomed to
thrilling his audience hut none could have been more receptive than the student body as
he rendered an lrish lullaby as only an lrishman could. Mr. Sullivan lelt some with a
tear in their eye and all with a Warm heart.
Captain Kenneth Staclc, Air Force Chaplain oi the Twentieth Bomber Command,
lingered an hour with us on Dec. 6, tallcing over experiences in many parts ol the world.
ljatherss "geography of placesn proved to be almost incredible. Chaplain with the lia-
mous PJ-QQ Bomber Group under Doolittle, Father had many revealing things to tell us
about the atomic bomb, his duties in the Air Corps, and the Presidential Unit Citation
conlerred upon the 20th Bomber Command.
The magic hands of Marietta Huron and her fine Xylophone kept all the girls en-
tranced. We felt in her presence a truly accomplished artist in an unusual Field. Miss
Huron included among her numbers a medley of gems from famous operas. A short his-
tory and a few iacts about her favorite instrument supplemented the program.
Cln Monday, Feb. ll, the auditorium was filled to capacity. The occasion was the
long anticipated visit oi Miss Mary Louise Hiclcey, solo dramatist. Miss Hiclcey has trav-
eled much. malcing many appearances throughout the United States. She displayed her
most unusual and superb talent by giving us her interpretation of the charming story ol
lflizabeth Barrett Browning, mlihe Barrets ot Vvimpoie Streetf,
Alter semester tests were recorded and retreat was a happy memory, a picnic party.
Cotton Cruise, was given tor the juniors and seniors ot Cathedral Girls' High School.
The student body organization also participated actively in the war bond and stamp
drive and its part tor charity by supporting the March oi Dimes and the VVar Chest.
We terminated a successful year which we hope will bring credit and honor to flur
Lady ol Peace.

sr IVIIRRORED MOTHER
A rose with petals tinted fair
Slaetches my Virginys cheelasg
The fields of goldenrod, her hair,
So waxen, lovely, long it seeks
Shoulders arched with dapple hlue.
Her eyes T lenow are the control
Of heaven and have larkspur hue.
A lily perfect claims her soul.
-Mary Ann K
Last night T toola them out awhile
Where only the stars could see,
From their dark, secret hiding place
T held them close to me.
A miser counting all his gold
Could scarcely ever he
As rich in happiness as when
T hold each memory.
For time has left them all unchanged,
No tarnish dims the shine
That every loving dream of you
Has made forever mine.
OUR LADY'S TREES
The trees of Villa Montemar
Have sung a song to me,
But T must leave their friendly shade
For other eyes to see.
They have sheltered Josephs statue,
From Decemhens icy Tulastg
And whispered of the Carolers
That sang on Christmas, past.
They have murmured in the twilight,
When the Chapel lights were low,
Of the beauty of the Aves
Said in sanctuaryys glow.
Now the future beckons me,
But lilze music from afar,
Tn my heart your songs l'll carry,-f
Trees of Villa Montemar.
,-Virginia Anne Schur.
NEVER DOES A DAY GO BY
Never does a day go hy,
Cloudy, gay or hlue,
Never does the North Wind sigh
Without its dreams of you.
Never when the sunheams dance
Nor when the snowflakes fall
Do T forget your teasing glance
And when you used to call.
From deepening roots of memory,
Come echoing thoughts, that bless
The long lost hopes T had of thee
To haunt my loneliness.
The mournful dove with its sad sweet song
Tortures my heart, since you have gone.
Sun bleached columnades.
Bathed in mottled shades,
Courted hy the tossing trees,
Soothecl and woioed Tay ocean breeze,
Regally caps the hill's curved breast,
A constellation in the dying West.
,-Gwen F inn
THE VIGIL LIGHT
Within a Cup of garnet
Brushes walls with hands of hallowed light
Until the brave and lonely orison
in aureoles of smoke.
-Mary Theresa Koch
Love may wait in a rose-lit place
Hung with fancies long,
perhaps it will lead you a maddening chase
Like the haunting wisp of a song:
Whenever you reach it, today or tomorrow,
Woven in venturous schemes,
Never again will your heart need borrow
The subtle magic of dreams.
From His hands I own the eyes
To praise His singing trees,
From His hands 1 have the ears
To love His melodies,
And from those hands, I hold a soul
With sea of life, and sail,
Even though I placed within
Those sacred palms, the nail.
-Mary Theresa Koch
MY CHRISTMAS DAY
l had a happy Christmas day,
l saw my love once more,
,Twas not until this holy time
That he came home from war.
We gazed upon the Christmas bells
That hung upon the tree,
l saw his face reflected there,
Smile again to me.
I felt the joy that heaven gave
When through the burning tears,
We walked together all the way
From Mass, since treasured years.
And now that dreams have passed away,
l find myself alone,
For he was never really here
And never will come home.
-Mafy Theresa Koch.
