IN THE PROCESS of ratification by the faculty is the revised ASB Constitution. From left to right are Sister Margaret Leo, Sister Robertine, Sister Stephanie, Sister Aileen Francis, principal, Sister Margaret Alacoque, Sister Mary Bernard, Sister Virginia Joseph, and Sister Carmela. ur jew em r0ug!Lf M fo CAPM COMING TO SAN DIEGO from St. Louis in l882, our teachers, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, started a school in a small house at Second and G Streets, dedicated to Our Lady of Peace. Three months later, they moved to Third and A Streets, site of the present Medico-Dental Building. WITH NEWSPAPER HEADLINES in l924, "Sis- ters Buy Vandruff Estate" opens the history of the Sisters at the present Academy. WITH MOTHER ST. CATHERINE as principal, the new Academy was formally dedicated, May I4, 1927. FOLLOWING MOTHER ST. CATHERINE as principal were Sister Generosa, Sister Rosemary, Sister William, and our present principal, Sister Aileen Francis, who has a message for us, the seniors of '55, Our Lady of Peace sixty-fifth graduating class. "Therefore iudge not before the time, until the Lord come, Who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and will make manifest the counsels of hearts: and then shall every man have praise from God." On that day only, dear Seniors, can you rest secure in the accomplishments which are yours. To praise you now would be a falsity. Life is before you. Material- ism, secularism, confusion: the iangling noises of a fast-moving world await you. As you go--go quietly. Right values have been placed before you. The things of God, about which there is ever wrapped an eternal quiet, have been given first place. Your merit will not be in high places, but in a complete living out of your God-intended and God-centered vocation - "Who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and will make manifest the counsels of hearts" - counsels taught in the quiet of your beloved Alma Mater, Our Lady of Peace. Then, and then only, shall you "have praise from God." Because then you shall have been found faithful. May God and Our Lady go with you!

ur Mdfrola .gjfzeiolzercld Our iocede Celebrating the fortieth anniversary of his ordination to the holy priesthood, September 21, 1954, His Excellency, the Most Reverend Charles F. Buddy, D.D., Bishop of San Diego, offered a Solemn Pontifical Mass of Thanksgiving in St. Joseph's Cathedral. Ordained in Rome, His Excellency served twenty-two years at the Cathedral in his native city, St. Joseph, Missouri, first as curate, then assistant, and finally as rector. His administrative ability did not go unnoticed for on October 1, 1936, the late Pope Pius Xl raised him to the episcopacy as the first Bishop of San Diego. Assuming the crozier of St. Didacus in 1937, he was told "the harvest is yours to sow and yours to reap . . . " Following this counsel, His Excellency has directed a convert apostolate which has spread to dioceses throughout the United States and has won praise from our present Pope Pius Xll. EACH YEAR, HIS Excellency, the Most Reverend Bishop, honors Our Lady of Peace with several visits. Tradi- tionally, the Bishop formally opens the school year by offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Acad- emy chapel in honor of the Holy Spirit that He guide and direct the studies and activities of the year. Students look forward to His Ex- cellency's attendance at their Christ- mas and school plays. Words of en- couragement and counsel at Com- mencement Exercises send graduates forth with zeal and enthusiasm to share their gift of faith with those less fortunate.

Miss Celia Zaragoza "NO HABLO MAS," are familiar words to Academisses since Miss Zaragoza has been in charge of the high school library. Even though much of her time is spent in pursuing girls with overdue books, she still finds time to keep the library in perfect order., Miss Florence Morzinski v r AFTER GRADUATING IN '53, Florence re- turned to OLP the following September as school secretafy.
