Feast of the Annunciation
A Cordial Blessing to the Graduates of Villa Montemar:
Our Lady of Fatima you hail as Queen and Heavenly Mother. To her Immaculate
Heart you dedicate your scholastic career entrusting to her maternal understanding
the deep-sea-Soundings of your own immortal souls.
To be sure, you envision your Divine Lover in her anus. With both Mother and
Son you are beautifully identified, no wonder Our Lady of Peace Academy has
always been blessed with an atmosphere of serving the Lord in gladness.
Linked with this cherished distinction and stimulated by the impact of corre-
sponding grace, rightly portioned to the needs of the individual, is the reali-
zation that the work of the Holy Spirit must be succeeding there because joy, the
fruits of His seven-fold gifts, comes to those who seek Him and to those who find
Thus firmly established and victorious over every foe and fear, you know spiritual
values. Applying them you can wield tremendous powers to help dispell the current
darkness and confusion. Be then a kindly light to seekers after truth.
The Most Reverend Charles F. Buddy
Bishop of San Diego

cil was begun. A committee was formed to

brought experiences in camping out, horseback riding,
with the last day on the beach at Del Mar rounding
out a perfect holiday for seniors.
FOUR DAY RUN of POINT OF NO RETURN,
April 29, 30, and May 1, 2, more than repaid Apaches
for long tedious hours of practice preceding actual
performances before full houses.

Alma Flores as Duncan, Margaret Greggs taking the part
of Macbeth, and portraying Lady Macbeth, Charlene Ste-
phens put on tape direct quotations from MACBETH by
William Shakespeare. Acting out the play in English IV,
each member of the class had an opportunity to give a dra-
matic rendition of individual excerpts.
Along with MACBETH, Romantic and Victorian periods
as well as Contemporary Writers play an important part in
the senior English cycle. Fourth semester oral book reports
had a fifteen-minute time limit.
MAKING CLASS MORE interesting, seniors give civics
reports at the portico near the swimming pool. Talking
from notes, Anne Whitlock fcenterj speaks on a current
topic treated in ten different issues of AMERICA. to which
each member of the class subscribes. Apaches put many
hours of preparation into these five-minute talks. Beverly
O'Connor tleftl and Barbara McGowan await their turns,
wishing they were as far along in the report as Anne.
Second semester term papers, written on a topic treated in
one or more papal encyclicals, also proved a challenge tc

AS THE JUNIORS returned in September, the
class of ,55 realized that their long cherished dream
of becoming upperclassmen had come true. Wel-
comed by their new home room teacher, Sister Rob-

year of high school.
FOUR CAPABLE GIRLS, elected as class
officers on September 23. Floradel Green, president,

the new members in the class. Newcomers were in-

WHEN THE YULETIDE season arrived, seven
juniors were pleased when asked to participate in
the Christmas festivities by playing parts in the
Christmas play, December 17. Before enjoying
Christmas vacation, beginning December l8, the

by a class celebration.
RETURNING IN JANUARY with added enthusi-
asm, juniors eagerly planned the Miss OLP contest.
After a hectic week of casting votes the victor to be
crowned the Miss OLP was junior Joanne Wantuch.
Her coronation dance, HEARTS IN SPRING-TIME,
was sponsored by the junior class, February l9.
SHOUTS OF JOY echoed from the junior class-
room, March 2, as the long awaited junior rings ar-
rived, now displayed proudly by juniors, assuring
them that they are truly upperclassmen.
OPENING WITH MASS and followed by
breakfast, the juniors began their celebration in
honor of Our Lady of Good Counsel, April 26. A

realized that in the space of a few weeks they would
become mighty seniors.
AS A FINAL class project, the junior drama class
presented the play, DUB LADY OF FATIMA, on
Maryis Day. May 28.
On June 7, at graduation the juniors dressed in

AENEID, Jean McDonagh and Joan Henehan smile their
approval. The AENEID ranks among the greatest literary
works of all times and is a very important part of the ad-
vanced high school Latin course.
CONTINUING THEIR THIRD year study of Latin, seven
juniors have spent this year examining the works of the
famous Latin authors. These girls feel that in studying
Latin they gain a better foundation upon which to build a
modern foreign language. Latin, they believe to be of value
as a disciplinary measure, for a cultural background, and
as a means of attaining mastery in English.
FIRST YEAR SPANISH students, Patricia Miller, Joanne
Waiituch, and Marie Prinos, exhibit unique Spanish art
pieces. Their attention is focused on a red and white bull,
made in Mexico, representing their class mascot, Ferdinand.
By closely examining brightly colored pottery vases ob-
tained from south of the border, the girls develop a finer
appreciation of the artistic abilities of the Spanish-speaking
countries. Sister Margaret Alacoque, instructor in Spanish.
believes that a study of the Spanish people themselves, their
customs, and recreation is as important to the students as
learning their language.
AS A RESULT of a French vocabulary bee, students of
the first year French class retired to the Point, where cokes
were served by the losing team to the winners, refreshing
their tired minds. Proud of their victory, Mary Beth Harri-
gan and Charlene Borgerding offer a toast to their defeated
opponents, Jean Weber and Louise Myers. The conversation
at the get-together drifted to the absurd possibilities of the
junior French students ever arriving in gay Paris. These
girls have taken an active interest in the culture of France
and have enjoyed analyzing the quaint customs of the French
peasantry and nobility.

while Gail Graham and Louise Myers discuss their coin-

temporary poems and their authors, the girls ohtain a deeper
appreciation of modern poetry. lfndiscovered artists were
revealed when some of the poems were illustrated with
stndent's free hand drawings. Besides an opportunity to
display their ingenuity, juniors also became more familiar
with the technique ol' library research in doing necessary
reference work. Their hooks also fuliilletl specifications for
a regularly printed hook, preparing: them for similar assign-
ments in college.

their own class. Succeeding, they received first place in the high school for selling
dinner tickets and chances for the Fiesta, March 29.
ST. MARIA CORETTI, class patroness, encouraged them toward the latter part
of the year as resolutions were sometimes forgotten, or school routine was becoming
tiresome, but especially in their stage debut in GHOSTS OF CENTERVILLE, April 2.

resident students, gaining new friends and renewing old acquaintances.
WITH EITHER ST. Catherineas or St. Margaretis as their home during school months, they
find both companionship and contentment as they pray, play and work together.
TO BALANCE SCHOOL life with social activities, the faculty arranges theater parties, ex-
cursions. and other outside activities to break the daily routine, and also to encourage the right
type of entertainment.
AS THE GIRLS study and live together they not only develop their mental abilities, but
also virtues very necessary for success in future vocations in later adult life.
DURING THE MONTHS of boarding, they have the opportunity to increase their sense of re-
sponsibility and their spirit of cooperation with the Sisters and their companions. They will
also be more able to participate in games and creative projects carried on during recreation hours
MANY OF THE boarders are from all parts of California while some are from Mexicog
but all. however. live in the spirit of family friendship.
