Mrs. Marguerite Mather
RETURNING TO THE Academy after an ab-
sence of seven years, Mrs. Mather teaches
drama. Particularly interested in the art of
speaking as well as in drama, Mrs. Mather
prepared the girls to participate in the Marian
Speech Tournament in Los Angeles, December
8, and to take the first steps in forming a
forensic league in San Diego.
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. No pressure of wiark, effi-
ciently and promptly done, ever causes Flor-
ence to forget her' cheery smile and friendly
greeting. t A
Miss Barbara Von
ALTHOUGH THIS IS her first year at the
Academy, Miss Von is already noted for her
gymnastic work-outs and terrific volleyball
teams. Babs, who teaches Academisses gym
daily hails from San Diego State College
where she is doing post graduate work.

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
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
"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!
