PAGE 100 THE ALVERNIAN Slanding flrfi Io righij --Mary Alice Schowalter, Rosemary Cella. Srufed Qlefl fo rigblj -Virginia Preglow, Genevieve Healy, Marian Daly. Soclalitg Officers O PROMOTE the Cause of Christ in the hearts of the socialists by inculcating the four loyalties: Loyalty to the person of Christ, Loyalty to the Church of Christ, Loyalty to the social reign of Christ, and, Loyalty to the cultural reign of Christ, the Student Spiritual Council, composed of Genevieve Healy, Rosemary Cella, Mary Alice Schowalter, and Marian Daley, referred much of its work to four standing committees. These committees provided and sponsored programs of appropriate activities or projects. There is not space for more than mention of the various committees--the Eucharistic Our Lady's, the Apostolic, the Literature, and the Social Action-directed by Sisters Digna, Lois, Edelwalda, and Paraclita. The Publicity Committee kept the Sodality bulletin board attractive and worth While, acquainting the students with Sodality activities and publishing these activities outside the school when necessary. The work of the Social Action Committee lay in caring for the poor and sick by offering them whatever help it could in the line of food and clothing. The Catholic Literature Committee aimed to interest the students in good literature, and to recom- mend and place within their reach the best books and magazines. The Braille Com- mittee, active enough at Alvernia to be a separate organization, worked quietly and generously to provide reading matter for the blind. The periodic magazine, stamp, and tinfoil "campaigns," conducted by these committees of the Sodality, met with tremendous success as did the annual medicine, textbook, and candy udrivesf' Food, clothing, and toys brought delight and comfort to countless homes at Christmas and Easter.

THE ALVERNIAN Che Sodalitg Assemblg VERY student a sodalist" is the slogan of the Alvernia Sodality and the large percentage of Alvernians who are members of this organization show how well this slogan is carried out. Early in September the Students' Spiritual Council-Genevieve Healy, prefectg Rosemary Cella, vice prefectg Mary Alice Schowalter, treasurerg Marian Daley, secre- tary-met to outline the plans for the year's program and to appoint committees to carry on the work of the Sodality. Assisted by the tireless and sympathetic moderator, Sister M. Edelwalda, these ofhcers prepared monthly meetings, held in the school auditorium on the Wednesday preceding the first Friday of every month. Frequently outside speakers were engaged to address these meetings, as it was believed that talks furnished by priests would be instrumental in advertising and spreading the Catholic faith as well as teaching the true doctrine. In fulfillment of its function as a student religious organization, the Sodality sponsored noon-clay religious exercises in the school chapel during October, the month of the Rosaryg November, for the poor soulsg December, in honor of the Divine Infantg and May, in honor of the Blessed Virgin. At the conclusion of May, white-veiled students moved slowly down the aisle of the chapel, each pausing before the shrine of the Blessed Mother to whisper a prayer and to lay bouquets of Spring flowers at her feet. Through the channels of the committees-the Eucharistic, Apostolic, Catholic Literature, Social Action-the Sodality supplies the spiritual, intellectual, and recrea- tional needs of its members, and contributes to the spirit of enlightened activity that has come to be known as Catholic Action.

C "rx-un ALVER,NIANi Marie Kioebge, Olive Kottkc, and Mary Ann Schorsch examining homes in Pamphville. 'Pamphville MONG the best methods for the defense of Religion there is none more suited to the present age, and none more efficacious than the Press. The Press is the work par excellence." lf there was reason for Pope Leo to advocate the matching of the Catholic press with the secular in his day, when conditions were not half so fatal to faith and morals as in the age in which we now live, what would he declare if he were living? Realizing that Alvernians are living in an age when everybody reads and when editors and authors write what people want to read, the Literature Committee, under the leadership of Mary Berry, encouraged the support of the Catholic Press during February by erecting Pamphville-the villa of pamphlets. Sodality headquarters were magically transformed into a delightful village, with winding roads, devious paths, running brooks, and charming homes akin to some fairy suburb. Each dream house with its occupants represented the home of famous characters from famous pamphlets. To inspire Sodalists and to acquaint them with the true culture and philosophy found in Catholic literature, the Literature Committee also launched the project of a Gallery of Living Catholic Writers. Along the wall in room clippings containing biographical and bibliographical data, letters and photographs, believed that if students' the books on the library 106, the committee posted and original manuscripts and autographs. The committee interest in worth-while books cannot be aroused by seeing shelves and publicized on the bulletin board as good reading, perhaps the personal Contact with the authors might bring about the desired effect.
