Cadence of the
Class of 1948
Academy of the Holy Angels - Minneapolis, Minnesota
1948O Holy Angvls, otir Alma Mater. . .'
Jkanm-: Li:rsciu; ’18
There Ik a hint of spring upon the air.
Or. for a moment, snowflakes glisten there; But golden letters flash in any weather As girls in groups beneath it come together.
And symphonies of color pass our fign.
As friends together form a hasty line And enter into halls that All with melodies That later on become our cherished memories.
Our sign with golden letters- swings so gently there; And many are the girls who pause beneath, with care Reflecting on the joys and fun that once they know When they were still attending school here with us. too.THEME
As n prelude, the Senior class announces the theme of the 1918 Angelas: our school song, "O Holy Angels." The music and lyric chime beautifully the Catholic principles which the present class will always hold as t heir guide. The 'book expresses the cadence of our class ami the background of our memories of Holy Angel®.
Words: Jeanne Pasc.ii, '39
O Holy Angela, our Alma Mater;
It's you we light for,
It’s you we love;
With praising voices, your loyal daughters Lift up their hearts to sing this song;
We toast thy name, long may it reign Under the Angel's guiding wing;
Not with the sword.
But by thy word,
We go forward to spread thy fame.
Music: Bitty Ki dwell, ’39
As offering to our dear Christ and Mother, We raise aloft our bright blue and gold; With such a high aim. to win your honor. We sing our song to all the world;
With hearts sincere, we lift this cheer; We'll work until our goal is won.
Your honor gained,
Your name acclaimed.
On the day when your truth shlne clear.
Your honor gained. . .'

A nostalgic strain through the gaiety came from its being our last of this kind at Holy Angels. That's why we enjoy the old traditions much more fully. itli our entry us freshmen into the school in 1944 we began our four-year harmony. We anticipated each school day as a page on which the score of our education would he noted.

ll in the end «f our sophomore year anti il seemed hut yesterday that we were bewildered freshmen, trying to learn that fourth floor had everything on it hut classrooms.
This year will he remembered for our entrance into the school social life: the school danee, participation in an usscmhly, electing our own queen for the Spring Festival.
Always we will keep tucked away in our memories the funny incidents that suddenly pop|tcd up in every class, our first introduction to the word lihrocuhieulanist, and who was the father of the sons of Zrhcdee.
We had our serious moments, too. We were especially attentive to the suggestions offered by Father Bvme during our holy and wonderful retreat, and there was u strong movement towards devotion of the rosary and promo lion of the scapular medal. W e took great pride in giving gladly to the poor, and each week contributed to the support of Brother Matthew.
We shall never forget our Christmas play, “Mary llis Mother ’ and “The Prince Who Was a Piper.” No one could possibly forget the thrill we got when we put on “Sleeping Beauty," and people had to pay to see it.
All together, this year has been a happy and profitable one. May our next two he the same.

This year the hcauty of the chapel was enhanced by the installation of two stained glass windows made by Sister Rose Aurelia.
The sanctuary is always filled with multicolored flowers which exemplify Cod's handiwork on earth. Through the year the chapel has been a place to visit at any time to refresh onc'-soul.

Pencil sketching is done first with still life, then with life drawing and portraits of fellow students. Our designers of tomorrow begin with styling many of their own clothes in fashion drawing. Cutting linoleum blocks for the ACIIOAN and making (maters for all activities bring out the inventiveness of the AHA girls.
Art has a very practical side in its crafts: textile painting on tics, handkerchiefs. luncheon sets and scarfs; tooling leather billfolds and |x ckct cases; designing and stenciling Christmas cards and valentines. Many girls who have taken the regular course in art at the Academy are now earning money in some pha e of art craft.
