Q f QU SUEW i In order that the graduates from our high school may take their place in a fitting manner in the world without being of the worldg that they may be trained for the battle of lifeg that they may be provided with the equipment for heart and mind so necessary in these perilous daysg that they may be strengthened by a knowledge, reverence, and control of self to cope with the moral and intellectual dangers before them, that they may be prepared for the puzzling questions ahead before they are thrown into their midst, it is necessary to instill into the hearts of our pupils a keen sense of duty to achieve courageously the following ideals: Be prayerful and place yourself under God's care and His Blessed Mother's. Be proud of the Faith that is in you and cling to it. Be true to God and to yourself. Be sincere in all your social relations. A Be willing to share the burdens of those who need your help. Co-operate with others in work that is to be done. Have faith in yourselves and in those with whom you labor. Have greater confidence in God, more love for men, and a kinder attitude towards all. Strive for mental efficiency that you may always be guided by right principles. Endeavor to build up physically that you may bear your share of life's burdens. Determine to make your life work a service to humanity. Be courageous in assuming responsibilities in your parish, in your home, and in your nation. If you make these ideals dominant in your life, they cannot help but bring "Success" The Faculty .ll0,l...- GLEANINGS Write injuries on sand, but engrave benefits on marble. Hatred exists in hearts which are too weak to forgive. We do not count a man's years until he has noth- ing else to count. " 'Tis thus that on the choice of friends, our good or evil name depends." The Curtain Falls The final act of "High School Days" Draws swiftly to an end, And on this thrilling play of plays The curtain must descend. It was a most exciting treat ' For everyone concerned To act the play without defeat Until it was well learned. All scenes were laid at A. H. S. The time-four years of school, And every actress met success By making "work" her tool. There were some heartaches great and small With tears throughout the playg But laughter sought to conquer all And friendship paved the way. The skill which every star displayed Was pleasing to behold. Beneath the garb of every maid There lay a heart of gold. But all four acts have ended now, The last one fades away, And every star comes forth to bow On Graduation Day. Dorlores Miller, '36. 99 -X 'DP Dear Seniors: It is with deep regret that we bid you farewell. We shall indeed miss your cheery smiles and your kind, generous deeds. No longer will the halls echo with your gay laughter. No longer will your beaming countenances be seen in the classrooms. Your wit, your dramatic skill, your artistic temperament-everything will be sought for in vain. Others will join us during our remaining school days, but they will never fill your places. We must continue without you. As you go into the world, may God's choicest blessings be showered upon you, and may every success attend you.

We appreciate the example of industry and courtesy that they have giv-en us and are sorry that they will not be with us next year.-The Juniors. We are pleased to announce that our school has charter and has been admitted to "Quill and Scroll," the International Honorary society for high school journalists. This society includes over 1,000 chapters in every state of the Union, in England, Canada, British Honduras, Hawaii, Alas- ka, Philippine Islands, and China. "The purpose of 'Quill and Scroll' is to instill in students the ideal of scholarship, to advance the standards of journalism by developing better jour- nalists, and to promote exact and dispassionate thinking, cl-ear and forceful writing." The society's work includes research and surveys in the field of high school journalism to determine types of publications best suited to high schools. Other tasks engaged in are the organization of state press associations and the criticism of manuscripts and publications. According to rules, members chosen must meet the following requirements: CID They must be of at least Junior standingg C23 they must be in the upper third of their class in general scholastic standing at the time of their electiong CSD they must have done superior work in some phase of journal- istic or creative endeavorg C45 they must be recom- mended by the adviser who governs the publica- tionsg C55 they must be approved by the national executive secretary.

Some bingoes, parties, movies, shows, A candy sale, and such- All filled the program with success ,Twas mighty Seniors touch. But these enjoyments we did leave. Retreat next claimed full sway, And afterwards our mission drive For lands so far away. On rushed the flood, with all its force, Vacation with it came. Alas! free time We had to pay Before we could win fame. Then back to school and our events, The Prom, a huge success, Was held in May, and on that night We surely looked our best. But now the saddest part has come, Our high school days are through, 'Tis time to leave dear A. H, S. So we must bid Adieu. Marv Howley, '36.

The lively articles of these brilliant and up-to- the-minute editors appear for the last time in this issue, for within a few days these Seniors will be graduated from Annunciation High School, thereby severing their connections with "The Annunciatorf' .T-l-0 ...l Rev. P. J. Graney, pastor St. John's, Scottdale, Pa., will deliver the baccalaureate sermon to the graduates on June 11 at 8 o'clock. PAGE 4 L I . THE REV. CHARLES .I. DEASY, A.B. THE VERY REV. JOHN J. GREANEY, S.T.L. The Very Rev. J. J. Greaney, who is the head of our faculty and the pastor of Annunciation, has won the esteem of every member of our high school by his untiring zeal in our behalf. Father has secured for us every spiritual advantage, especially' the opportunity of receiving a Catholic education in a truly Catholic atmosphere. In spite of financial burdens, Father has supplied us with an adequate staff of teachers, has increased our scientific and commercial equipment, and has furnished a new library f for us. The faculty and student body Wish to express their gratitude and appreciation to Father Greaney. From our earliest school days, The Rev. Father Deasy has been our ideal of all that is noble and dignified in one of Christ's anointed. Father has spared no effort in helping and encouraging us in our school activities. As commencement day ap- proaches, every class looks to Father for valuable 4 suggestions for carrying out the graduation exer- i cises with best effect. During two of our high J school years Father Deasy has had charge of our + spiritual instructions. We shall strive ever to fol- l low his salutary advice. l Our faces brighten when we meet The Rev. Father O'Connell, for he has always been a strong support to us no matter what difficulties befell us. We knew what interested us would also be of in- I terest to him and that we could tell him about it in our own natural way. Father has charge of the ' Blessed Virgin's Sodality and we are all sodalists who benefit from the spiritual retreats that he ar- ranges for us. Our recent one was conducted by Dr. Jas. Carroll. As a mark of appreciation we A i promise to remain faithful SODALISTS after THE REV. LAWRENCE A. O'CONNELL, A.B. graduation. PAGE 5 l -ll X f F ls: '-A 5 ut, 4 6' On June 9, the'Seniors will present in Norwood Hall a striking play, entitled "lt's a Ming." The comedy has three acts in which ten of our gradu- ates will star. Margaret Campbell contributes a montrous vase to the Schools "White Elephant Auc- tion." A pair of practical jokers, Mary Gordon and Patricia Phelan, start a rumor that the vase is a valuable Ming. Dolores Schleich conducts a lively auction, at which Margaret Munsch, thinking the vase valuable, buys it. Miss Campbell learns that her kind but cranky aunt, Miss Dolores Miller, who had given her the vase, is coming to visit her. Miss Miller brings an expert, Mary Helen Madden, to decid-e whether the vase is a priceless masterpiece. A young reporter, Helen Donatelli, does some ex- pert maneuvering and acting until a crook is recog- nized in one of the party. A sub-plot of two love- sick girls, Ruth Gillen and Margaret Munsch, winds through the main story of the vase. All the parts in this delightful play of school days, including that of the old Irish maid, Margaret Fersch, are very attractive.-Mary Helen Madden, '36. fConcluded on Page 113 W we-1 Y I v f -C v-.

Thus was the atmosphere created on May 22 at Norwood Hall, the scene of the Senior Promenade, one of the most important social functions of the school year. The hall was beautifully decorated with large balloons and class pennants of gold and black. Large leafy palms offered a fitting background for the orchestra of WiIl Kestner, which furnished the music. Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Ley, and Mr. and Mrs. E. J. L-ey, the chaperons, aided in making this social event one that will always be memorable to the grad- uates and their friends. The following committee was in charge of the arrangements: Mary Howley, Dorothy McSt,een, Catherine Martin, and Cornelia Reister. The Senior proms have established a permanently cherished tradition in our high school. Dorothy McSteen, '36. The Sweet Girl Graduate One of the most popular phrases in the English language is "the sweet girl graduate." Although poets, orators, and authors have used those words time and again, the public never seems to tire of them. Tennyson, himself, wrote of "sweet girl graduates." Her pictures are in the rotogravure sections of the newspapers and the "Sweet Girl Graduate" herself is the subject of many editorials. All this praise, while very sweet and gratifying, sometimes is mere flatteryg but the happy Senior does not allow popular fancy to turn her head. The "sweet girl graduate knows well her possibilities, limitations and failures. "Knowledge comes, but Wisdom lingers." The high school Senior is laying a good foundation of learning and culture. However, she needs more than a mere accumulation of knowledge. She requires a resource- ful, honorable, responsible and self-reliant personality. An ideal gradu- ate should have serious views of life, good common sense and practical judgment, but best of all, a good supply of humor. She must be able to recognize true value, to sympathize with others, to cherish beauty, and to understand and obey that little voice of conscience prompting noble deeds which may require heroic sacrifices. Her education does not end at graduation, which is rightly called commencement day, for then life begins to test and train our "sweet girl graduate," be it in a Christian home or in a peaceful, happy convent.

At first private schools offered courses to students who had completed the grammar grades. Bookkeeping was the chief subject taught. Later typing and shorthand were introduced. Business continued to expand until today the necessity of commercial sub- jects in every course is apparent. Originally the schools aimed at training students to become either bookkeepers or stenographers. Then commercial education existed as a dis- tinct unit. Today, however, the advantage of some commercial knowledge to every stu- dent is imperative. The prudent academic pupil elects wisely one or two commercial branches. The student training for the commercial world needs a more solid business founda- tion than the academic student.

It is inclined to go the same way as that one-time good word notorious, ' which, from meaning note- worthy, now invariably means wicked, We say, with a shake of the head, 'Tm afraid it's becoming a habit," or "He's a slave to habit," meaning al- ways a bad habit, Yet habits may be good, they may be beneficial, the very foundation stones of orderly and beneiicent living. To train a good impulse, which may be fleeting, into a habit that is con- stant is surely to strengthen and en- noble character. The efficiency of a machine depends upon the exact co-ordination and co- operation of all its parts. There must be nothing jerky, occasional, spasmo- dic about any of its wheels, cranks or spindles. They must all have the me- chanical habit of working in unison. We are not machines, nor do we desire to become machines. But if We are to be efficient, We must form cer- tain somewhat machine-like habits of regularity, reliability, punctuality, in- dustry and thoroughness. We will then work with the smoothness and effi- ciency of a machine, whilst we need not sacrifice our power of initiative, forethought, and the adventurous spirit of discovery. There are nobler habits than these, which are only habits of the mind. Are there no habits of the spirit? I think so. A man may be efficient, yet 14,5 ,X1 W 'S il l' erousg orderly in his work, but disor- derly in his emotions. We have all known men and women Whose habits seemed to work perfectly in ordinary circumstances but who lost control and "crashed" when struck by adversity and trouble. They have neglected to form the habit of calm self-contain- ment, which is something higher and more spiritual than stoicism. Good habits, carefully and deliber- ately formed, often serve us better than great natural gifts, for one bad habit has often proved capable of rendering the greatest gifts almost useless--"the little rift within the lute which, by and by, makes all the music mute." Good habits are built to stand wear and tear. Being slow of growth, they are less liable to fall before "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune." There is a note of warning which needs to be sounded. We say a person has become the slave of habit. It is a true saying both for the good and the bad. A man may become the slave of a good habit. I have known men so tidy that they got nothing done. In its larger implications, it is what Tennyson meant when he said: "The old order changeth, yielding place to new, And God fulfils Himself in many ways, Lest one good custom should corrupt the world." So let us see that our good habits ever remain our servants and do not become our masters, for the spirit of a man is h.igher than any habit he may not patientg economical, but not gen- form.

Every faithful cherishes, loves, and honors his mother, and is happy to have others revere and befriend her. How pleased then is our Lord to have us love His Mother, how He delights to see us imitatlng herg taking all our joys, sorrows, failures, and successes to her!

It is situated between the towns of Boone and Ogden and at almost the exact geographic center of the state of Iowa. It has been named the Kate Shelley bridge, and while perhaps few of the transcontinental tourists know or care, it is a monument to an outstanding act of heroism of an Irish section foreman's daughter. -While the newspapers were filled with stories of the brave deed of Kate Shelley forty-six years ago, it has been made a part of the archives of the Iowa State Historical Society, and the grateful railroad company has perpetuated her name with its bands of steel and piers of stone, few of the younger generation stop to- day to think of what the name means. The Shelley family lived in 1881 in a cottage be- side the tracks in the valley of Honey Creek, about half a mile from the Des Moines River. It consisted of the widow and several little children of Michael J. Shelley, an immigrant from Tipperary, who had died three years before. The family, poor and fatherless, continued to live on in the home provided for its section foreman by the railroad company, doing its best to keep the wolf from the door. Of the little flock of children, Kate, then fifteen, was the oldest. Late in the afternoon of July 6, 1881, a violent storm swept through the Des Moines Valley. It had been raining for days, but this downpour was heavier than the rest and accompanied by terrific thunder and lightning flashes. Honey Creek became a raging torrent. The rising waters threatened the Shelley stable half way down the slope, where the cattle had taken refuge. Kate, who had been watching the storm from a window, dashed out, let out the horse and cows to shift for themselves and rescued the little pigs. There was no sleep for the Shelleys that night. The creek was filled with uprooted trees and fence posts and kept on rising. It must have been 11 o'clock when Kate 'and her mother heard the rumble of a train crossing the Des Moines river bridge. It was a pusher engine, with a crew of four men, which helped heavy trains up the grade on either side of the river. The pusher had been ordered to run between Boone and Ogden and look out for trouble where embankments had been undermined and bridge piling loosenef. The locomotive came backing down the track to the eastward, brakeman and section foreman standing on the running board of the tender peering into the gloom, the engineer and fireman on their boxes. Kate heard the bell toll as the engine slowly went on its way, then suddenly a horrible crash and a fierce hiss- ing of steam as the engine plunged through the broken Honey Creek bridge with its crew into twenty-five feet of rapid, swirling water. The midnight express from the west was due in less than an hour. Against the entreaties of her mother, Kate, attired in an old skirt and jacket and ltraw hat, improvised a. lantern by hanging a little 'iv ? W 3' T miner's lamp in the frame of an old railroad lantern and started out into the night. Unable because of the fiood to go directly to the tracks and thence to the fallen bridge, she climbed the blui back of the house, made a semi-circular detour, struck the wagon road through a cut in the bluffs, followed it to the tracks and then ran to the broken bridge. There she saw by the lightning fiashes two men of the engine crew clinging to treetops. The other two had gone down to death with the engine. So she turned westward and hastened toward Moingona, a mile and a quarter away, to fiag the express. But the long wooden bridge across the Des Moines, trembling with the rush of waters, lay between her and the village. Kate ran, stumbled and crawled along the track in the rain and darkness, wondering if she should be caught on the bridge by the express, or if the engi- neer should fail to see her tiny light and rush on to destruction. The gust of wind threatened to put out the lantern every minute. When she reached the bridge the water was swirl- ing among the ties, almost up to the rails. She dropped to her knees and crawled slowly and laborious- ly over the ties, spaced far apart and studded with spikes to discourage pedestrians from using it as a short-cut. Now and then her dress caught on a spike or gouged her fiesh. Halfway across a huge tree was dashed by the current against the structure, its roots sweeping a spot where she had passed a moment be- fore. Every minute seemed an hour, but at last she felt the solid ground beneath her. She stopped a moment to recover her breath, then set out on a run to the station, a quarter of a mile away. How she got there she was never able to tell clearly afterward. "The girl's crazy!" she remembered hear- ing someone say. Then someone recognized her as Mike Shelley's daughter. The whistle of the express from the west was heard as it slowed' up to enter the yards outside the town. The train, not scheduled to stop there, was Hagged, and the conductor and engi- neer heard her story. A crew with ropes and rigging went to the rescue of the two trainmen in the tree. guided by Kate Shelley. The excitement kept up for several days. Kate was overwhelmed with gifts from the grateful passen- gers on the express. Reporters came from Chicago, Des Moines, Omaha and elsewhere, and the story of her deed was flashed far and wide. Then several days later her strength gave way, the strain had been too great, and for three months was confined to her bed. Poems were written about her and she was show- ered with letters in praise of her heroism. The school children of Dubuque gave her a gold medal. The Chi- cago Tribune raised a fund for the Shelley family. The Iowa legislature of 1882 passed an appropriation to give her a gold medal suitably inscribed and S200 in cash. A drinking fountain dedicated to her war' erected in a Dubuque park. The employees of the Chicago and Northwestern presented a fine gold watch and chain to her and the company gave her 2 .pass for life over the road. The trains always stopped to let her off at the humble cottage in which she lived until her death. The company provided for her funeglf PAGE 16 Convent of the Blessed Sacrament St. Elizabeth's Cornwells Heights, Pennsylvania Feast of the Ascension My dear graduate: So you want to have a career! Well, I certainly hear that. I suppose, you are going through volumes of catalogues and papers to get information on all kinds of work open to one who intends to devote her life to a cause. You won't lose sight, I know, of the fact that the best sort of career is that in which one's neighbor is most benefited. ' You must not allow the rosy glow of romance to shine too persuadingly over your ideals. Everything looks perfectly grand in that light. That is why it's so hard to dis- regard it. Don't mistake me, dear graduate, for a practical old bore. I want you to be enthusiastic about your future work. I haven't much use for anyone who can't be alive and very interested in an important thing like this. Just don't forget the Lord -that is what I am trying to say. You see, God never, never thrusts Himself for- ward. If you want Him, you must ask Him to come to you and help you. Let me be explicit.

'its 2 y he fe . fe heard an excellent rendition or at the strains of the "Tantum Ergo"? Do you know why? I'll tell you. God is in everything that is exquisite and beautiful and grand. You look up to the great vast expanse of blue sky and then realize the truth of the words, "What is man that Thou art mindful of Him?" God lets you see how wonderful He is. Saint Augustine meant that when he said, "Our hearts are restless till they rest in Thee" for then we know that only God can fill the awful void within us. Will you let Him do it? Are you going to let His love fill your heart? I always think of the passage of the Bible that states that when God had fashioned man, He "breathed" into the form He had made. Our souls are God's breath. So are the souls of His neglected onesg and He wants to come to them. Is God asking you to make your career the bringing of souls to Him that He might fill them with Himself? Won't you think it over? There are thirteen millions of colored people who are waiting to be taught to love God. Several hun- dred thousand children of the Red man are without Him, too. The Lord of heaven and earth is looking down on you. When you turn your gaze upward and see His face,-God's face-what will your answer be? God love you and bless you. Yours devotedly, A. H. S. Alumna. .., O.l. . We Sophomores think that Biology is the only subject. This is our first year for science. Regular trips to the laboratory are made, during which visits we dissect everything from fishes to grasshoppers. The work is delightful, but it's a mystery how we endure the handling of dead specimens and the odor of formaldehyde. We frequently take our uniforms along with the fishy odors, to the cleaners. Catherine Smith, '38 -...- The Childhood of Jesus "Out of Egypt have I called My Son" QOsee xi-ID The Royal Psalmist sings: "Thou art beautiful above the sons of men!" From these two quotations and from Jewish customs we have to surmise the beauty and the peace that surrounded the Child Jesus after His return from Egypt until the incident of His being lost and found in the temple. At Nazareth under the care of His young mother and Saint Joseph, His limbs grew strong and His young lips learned to speak. Like other mothers, Mary taught Jesus His first lessons until He had reached the age of seven, at which time the Jewish child was handed over to the father for training and educating. The -child- hood of Christ must have been marked by health and vigor. During those years, no doubt, Jesus thanked His mother for her loving care of Him while a help- less babe. The neighbors and His relatives, when they beheld the beauty of His face and His gentle ways, could not help loving Him. While His parents silently adored Him, they treated Him as their son. The artist may picture the child Jesus amid the in- struments of the passiong but I do not think His childhood days were ever saddened by thoughts of the sufferings awaiting Him. Dorothy Forrest, '36 . . l In Memoriam "Where age nor tears nor pain nor cruel care Can harm her now, or enter Memory's Hall She that we loved so beautiful and fair Shall come to us still radiant when we call. From all Life's dangers now, secure is she Lovely she was and lovely she shall be." The announcement of Dorothy Carr's death came as a shock to her school day companions and to all of us who loved her so tenderly. Were it not for our strong faith, we might be tempted to say that it was sad that one so young with a promising, bright future should be called from our midst. God, who does all things well, has taken her to Him- self and we trust, has placed her among His chosen friends to enjoy the unending delights of Paradise. Catherine Martin, '36.

H-e remains in Jerusalem after the feast and hunts out the doctors and teachers to expound for them the prophecies and the doctrines. Among this learned group, Mary and Joseph find Jesus, the center of admiration, answering questions and astonishing the puzzled doctors. Mary draws near and mildly reproaches Him, "Son, why hast Thou done so to us? Behold, Thy father and I have sought Thee, sorrowingf' From the gentle lips of Jesus fall the first words that the Bible has recorded that He spoke-"How is it that you sought Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father's busi- ness?" These sentences express the Divine Sonship of Jesus and the object of His mission on earth. Having respectfully explained His conduct. "He went down from Jerusalem and was subject to them." He, the Creator of the universe, the Christ whose wisdom had astonished the doctors helps St. Joseph at the work bench. His years at Nazareth ran on in quiet, uneventful ways during which time our Lord communes with His Father and prepares Himself for His public life. The boyhood of Jesus is expressed in a few words: "And Jesus advanced in wisdom and age and grace with God and men." I, too, must advance in wisdom and age and grace as I grow to womanhood. I must try to perfect myself spiritually and intellec- tually that. I may become fit for my life's work- whatever it may be. Patricia Phelan, '33 A.. -40.1-li ST. JOAN OF ARC The members of the Catholic Crusade club chose St. Joan of Arc as their patron saint. It was she who strove to free France from the tyranny of the English and who attempted to preserve the Catholic faith in that country. This young girl of seventeen was appointed by messengers from God to do this work. Because she fought boldly and courageously, she was captured and charged with sorcery. After an unjust trial, she was burned at the stake for her church and country. This great saint, the "Savior of France," is hon- ored and respected the world over.

If brings for us our GRADUATION DAY-a day full of inspir- ing thoughts, the climax of events in every student's life. We shall have reached the parting of the ways with LIFE'S DUTY summoning us. We must bear our part in life's great work. These are for us days of serious reflection-days when we, who wish to succeed, must find out our short- comings in order to correct them, and real- ize our advantageous points so that they, too, may be developed. Our characters must be strengthened and rounded out if we are to attain the highest ideals of womanhood. If we neglect to enter into ourselves, life will become aimless and ambition for things worthwhile will die. Our success in life de- pends upon the wise selection of our voca- tion and this can only be made by knowing ourselves and our apptitudes and then seek- ing wise counsel. Now is the time to be- gin-COMMENCEMENT TIME! -Mary Carita Brown, '36, alter J.

What a thrill, what expectations those words bring to the heart of the graduate! A day filled with varying experiences: greetings, heart throbs, joys, regrets, am- bitions, desires, farewells. A day never to be forgotten. Friends, teachers, companions are parted, never to be associated in the old, happy way. The heart wells with sadness when the fare- wells are said. But these feelings soon pass. Life and its adven- tures stretch before. There is the excitement facing the future, the joy of Winning success, the expectation of building a glorious life. Ahead is the school of life. Success in this school is not made wholly by book knowl- edge, though it certainly contributes, but is largely determined by the strength and develop- ment of character. The graduate by this time should have learned to be persistent and stead- fast, and to think clearly. If a prob- lem or a question cannot be answered at once, the student has learned to go pa- tiently over the various points, to apply the light of clear thinking, and so to reach his conclusion from an unobscured mind. He has achieved other things, also 3 among them perhaps a strong, healthy body, and proficiency in some art or trade. But more than these are necessary. The character, to assure one's suc- cess, must be broadly developedf' The IL-ni graduate should express kindness and consideration. He must build on a con- structive foundation. He needs to be able to distinguish the desirable from the undesirable in life. ' To build this foundation he must se- lect his words carefully. Negative words will never build a constructive founda- tion. Just what are negative 'vvords? They are words of sadness, of failure, of sickness. They are the op- posite of joy, success, health, strength, enthusiasm. The graduate will know, when he stops to think, that words do produce after their kind. If one continually talks about failure and unhappiness, failure and unhappiness in- variably result. The person who makes life worth while sees success in the face of apparent failure, and dis- cerns a life of great hap- piness, joy and well-being. On graduation day it is Well that we should stop and think a while on the possibilities of life. We must decide what kind of life We desire to lead, whether it is to be the Wide road of pleasure, or the narrower path of great purpose. The giant tree, as we all know, has resisted rains, Winds, and storms, it has held to its purpose to be a good tree. In our purpose to be good citi- zens, we resist all negation, holding firmly and steadfastly to the higher principles of life. We choose to ex- press only the good, only the true. Commencement Day is the end of one span of our life's activities and the en- tering into a greater one. 4-o 4-o-0-o-0-0-0-QQ PAGE 22 ,pl I, .. .J "M I .
