"Mother of Christ, Mother of Christ,
He was all in all to Thee
In Bethlehem's cave
In Nazareth's home
I ll the hamlets of Galilee.
Oh, Mother of Christ, Mother of Christ,
This do I ask of Thee
When He lifts His face
To Th y sweet embrace
Oh speak to Him, Mother, of me."

F ORE WORD
As students of a high school that bears the title
of Our Lady's Feast, the Annunciation, we thought
it fitting to change the name of our annual to "THE
ANGELUSH-A prayer that relates the events of
the ANNUNCIATION. Since the "Ave Maria"
is always blended with the "Angelus" we have
expressed in verse the thoughts contained in these
two beautiful prayers in honor of God's Sweet
To our Beloved Mothers through Mary, the QUEEN
OF MOTHERS, this the Tenth Volume of our
High School Annual is affectionately dedicated.
May our Heavenly Queen obtain from her Divine
Child the choicest blessings for our own dear
mothers whose love and sacrihce have enabled us
to receive our education within the portals of
Annunciation under Our Lady's care.
ANNUNCIATION H1014 SCHOOL, N. S., Piwsauuuu, PA.
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY
"The parochial high school stands as the champion of faith and justiceg stands monu-
mentally as an undying witness to the love of Mother Church for the souls of her children. The
perfection of the Catholic high school is the advance of all those truths which are the saving
salt of intellectuality, of all those doctrines which purify and strengthen a people. The best
high school is that wherein physical, intellectual, and moral soundness are procurableg wherein
nothing detrimental to body and mind and soul-growth be found."

THE REV. LAWRENCE A. O'CONNELL, A B
To the Class of '40:
The long awaited day about which you have so often dreamed is soon to dawn! Your
individual names as well as the record of the class will soon be transcribed on the graduate
As you leave the stage of Norwood Hall on the evening of your formal graduation, the
heaviness of heart you will then experience at the thought of severing the class ties that bind
you to your classmates will be made somewhat lighter if you reflect that you will all meet again
at Holy Mass on Sunday, June sixteenth. Your sorrow will be turned into joy at the Sacred
Banquet Table where you and Christ will be One. This Joy no one can take from you.
Let Joy then be the keynote of your graduation! As defined in the New Century Dic-
tionary, Joy is an emotion arising from present or expected good. Your "present good" and
the cause for joy is that you are equipped with a thorough Christian education as a result of
the sacrifices of your good parents and teachers. Your "expected good" is, because of your
Catholic training, you will be able to take your place in life in a manner pleasing to God and
l am certain that you who were favored to live each day of your school life under the
prudent guidance of the Immaculate Nlother of God will be true to her. Herein lies your hope
of continued joy.
ln your journey through life, rejoice in the fact that you are a graduate of Annunciation
High School. Let the soul-stirring scene of the Annunciation be engraved deeply in your heart,
so that in imitation of your Heavenly Queen you will be ever ready to unite your will in humble
submission to the Holy Will of God.
May your life be a joyous journey with Mary and may the joyful strains of her Magnificat
fill your soul with unending joy and may you, when the course of life is run, know the thrill of
the Eternal Joys of Heaven!
L. A. O'CON NELL.
Im. REV C. M. F1NK, A. B.
It has been said and rightly so that "a good heart makes a good face" perhaps not a
pretty face but a refined and a noble one. And just as "the stars are the windows of Heaven
where Angels peep through" so are the eyes the windows of the soul in which all that is good
and noble and true is spontaneously reflected.
We all are irresistibly drawn to the beautiful .We love the beautiful whether we see that
beauty in a face, in a painting, in nature or in the stars of the heavens or in the beauties of our
religion. The thing we love, that we are attracted by and drawn towards. Since God is Beauty
Itself, there should our love lie. Beauty begets beauty. Thus it is that one noble soul is
attracted by another beautiful soul. Keep your souls beautiful and your lives will be beautiful.
Your inner spiritual qualities are the ones that give you true charm and these you should strive
The seeds of character have been planted here at A. H. S. The success of your lives
depends upon how these seeds are nurtured and cultivated. lt is your duty to see that they are
watered with the graces of God, sprinkled with your own good deeds and warmed by the sun-
shine of a life constant and steadfast to God and neighbor.
And now that you are graduating you are leaving the days of your childhood behind and
a new, more mature life opens before you. Remain ever close to the principles taught you here
and whenever in life you weary of the struggle turn to the Fountain of all Graces and He will
Nlay the star of your life he ever bright and always in the ascendancy. Nlay your love
of purity illuminate the star of you life and be as resplendent and enduring as the sun in the
heavens. God bless You.
CHAS. M. FINK.
THE Rav. HOWARD J. Fokn, A. B
For the Graduates of 1940:
Oh Nlary, from thy garden choose
And gather to thy heart
This new bouquet of fair young lives.
Protect them as they chart
Their journey by the morning star
Of thy sweet purity
That they may find the peaceful way
Unto their Mother's knee.
HOWARD J. FORD.

OUR BANQUET ACLUB ROONI
The above picture was taken at a Communion Breakfast served by the Class of 1940
lo a group of Alumnae. A. H. S. students are proud to hold their formal and informal banquets
in this remodeled, attractive club room. A big affair was the banquet sponsored recently hy
the Rev. L. A. O'Connell, pastor pro-tem, and served here by the caterers of Joyce lVlcClements
to our famous VARSITY BASKETBALL SQUAD. The Rev. C. Nl. Fink was toastmasterg
the Rev. H. J. Ford added to the celebration hy piano selections, Coach Stotz gave a talk.
"Join Pleasure with Practice in Basketball", and every member of the squad added merriment
to the occasion.
We, the departing seniors, thought that this annual would not be complete without a
picture of the cafeteria with our pleasant hostess, Mrs. Schad and her aids. Anyone who wants
a steaming hot meal in winter or an appetizing luncheon in summer, just visit our cafeteria
between the hours of eleven and twog and be assured that you will be hospitably received and
well served. A vote of thanks is hereby extended to our faithful, cheerful friend-M rs. Schad,
and to her gracious helpers who have served us almost eight hundred delicious lunches during
our four years at Annunciation.
THE STUDENT BODY PRAYS THE MASS AND
OFFERS IT WITH THE PRIEST.
"The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was instituted by Our Lord at the Last Supper, when
Ho pronounced the words that caused bread to be changed into His Adorable Body, and wine
to be changed into His Precious Blood.
To the Catholic the MASS is a precious pearl of great price, which the Church has sought
through the centuries to give a setting worthy of its Divine Donor. She enshrined the sacred
words of consecration in a liturgy of overwhelming majesty, uniting the inspired utterance of
psalmist and prophet with the fervent outpourings of her own saints and prophets."
An appreciation of the Mass as the most sublime act of man's homage to God is expected
of every Catholic student.

"l HAVE LOVED, O LORD, THE BEAUTY OF THY HOUSEg AND THE
PLACE WHERE THY GLORY DWELLETH."HPsalm 25.
In love and fervor we repeated these words as we left the church at the close of our annual
retreat. This year we were fortunate in having as retreat master the Rev. Andrew J. Pauley,
our bishop's secretary. During the three days of recollection, at the heart to heart conferences,
Father impressed upon us the fact that all who are now in heaven arrived there through prayer,
and that those who are lost are lost through lack of prayer. Father urged us to pray as we had
never prayed before and especially for the intention of our Holy Father that peace might be
restored among nations. The last exercise of retreat was a Holy Hour in which we participated
actively hy singing and praying, and by promising to respond to the loving invitation of Christ:
"Can you not watch one hour with me?"
Meet these charming couples at Our Lady's Prom. Under her protection one need
not fear that aught hut innocent recreation will find place at such a happy gathering.
Before the lieautiful month of Nlay came to a close, the seniors held a May Pole Prom.
They decorated Norwood Hall to represent a large Nlay pole whose colored streamers extending
lo the corners of the room formed a picturesque false ceiling. Colored flood lights furnished the
illumination. A profusion of flowers and palm increased the attractive appearance of the hall
that holds so many happy memories for the students of Annunciation High.

THE STORY OF THE OPERETTA
The Duchess is giving a garden fete in honor of the King and Queen and hopes that the
Prince will fall in love with one of her daughters. However, the Yellow Witch and Fairy God-
mother wish him to marry Cinderella, and determine to foil the plans of the Duchess. The
Yellow Witch entices the Duchess and her daughters to the witch's cottage on the Moor, and
leaves Cinderella with Tom Thumb alone in the Castle. Tom Thumb plans to give a party during
the absence of the Duchess, and goes to invite the guests. While he is away the Prince, who
has been wandering about the town, knocks at the kitchen door to ask for a drink of water. He
sees Cinderella and falls in love with her. After his departure Tom Thumb returns and is
followed by the guests to the party.
This act opens with the Fairy Godmother and her band of fairies dancing on the lawn.
They leave before the arrival of the Duchess and her daughters. The Duchess, transported
with joy at the success of her plans, is sure one of her daughters will be the prince's bride. The
Prince is melancholy for he cannot forget Cinderella. Disguised as a strange lady, Cinderella
comes to the ball and again meets the Prince who becomes more and more enraptured with her
beauty and charm. The clock strikes the hour of twelve, and Cinderella flees leaving one of
her slippers behind her. When the King offers a reward for news of the beautiful girl, the
Fairy Godmother enters and tells who Cinderella really is. When escorted by fairies Cinderella
returns to the ball, the Prince tries on the slipper and finds it a perfect tit. He claims Cinderella
as his bride. The curtain falls as the King calls for a toast "Long Live the Prince and his Bride,
the lovely Cinderella."

class play. Who among the audience at Annunciation could forget the wild romping tom-boy
Jo, her teaching Amy to faint, her pranks with Laurie, her fight with Amy, her tenderness for her
dying sister, Little Beth, her courtship with Professor Bhaer? Can't you still hear Aunt March

Class H istory
Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, as we remember, how under your protection
we struggled at Annunciation through four short years of the game of Life.
After assisting at the Holy sacrifice of the Mass on that sunny September morning in
the year 1936, we assembled at Annunciation gym for the most important basketball game of
our lives. As an inexperienced squad, we opened our season with very tough opponents Studies.
After a short delay during which we donned our uniforms, reviewed the regulations and penalties,
and invoked the aid of Our Lady of Victory, we took our places on the floor.
The whistle blew! The game started! The referee, Sister Lucille, tossed the ball of
Knowledge to our center who passed it to the right forward. That frightened freshman fumbled
and had a toss-up with Algebra. Both players strove desperately to gain possession of the ball.
The referee, noticing that we were charging on School Spirit, called the first foul of the game
Initiation. We caught the ball as it rebounded from the bankboard, completed a perfect pass.
and made our first basket when we presented the play "Mimi Lights The Candle." Time out
was called for Christmas vacation. No sooner had play been resumed than we were tripped
by mid-year exams. Fearfully approaching the foul line our forward made a successful free
shot and scored another point. Our in the center tossed the ball down the key. English,
ever alert, intercepted the pass and hurled it to General Science a pivot shot and the ball was in.
At final examinations Studies landed on top of us and we were given a free shot. Shaking
nervously we hurled the ball of Knowledge. lt went in. Just then the whistle blew and the first
quarter ended with us in the lead by a score of five credits.
Feeling confident we again took our places on the floor. The referee, exhausted after
the vigorous first quarter, was replaced by Sister Vincent Mary. The new subs, Biology and
American History, promptly reported to her while General Science and Ancient History left
the floor amid rousing cheers. During the first minute of the second quarter the sensational
set shot, Father Delaney's Retreat, was scored. Again our team received the ball, worked it
to the key from where we tossed a Valentine Party alloting two more points. Latin fouled by
pushing with a Vocabulary Contest. We shot - the ball hit the rim of the basket but did not go
in. Recovering the ball a guard passed it to our star forward who took a shot with the camera
and two points were added when our pictures appeared in the Annunciator.
After a long rest we lined up and took the floor for the second half. Sister Geraldine
replaced our referee who was needed for another game. The substitutions, French, Book-
keeping, Shorthand, and Typing reported and the game continued. lntercepting the ball as it
was passed from Latin to French we pivoted and shot a perfect goal by receiving our Class Rings.
Then we really started to dance around the floorg the Junior Hop added two more points to our
score. During Vocation Week we used a trick play, "The Call", to chalk up another basket.
With only seconds to play in the quarter, time was called out while we made a Spiritual Retreat
under Father Patrick Rice.
Since this was the last quarter of the game we begged our Blessed Mother to help us
persevere in the few remaining minutes. Our coach Sister Florence acted as referee. Seeing
that we were catching on to Geometry our coach rushed Chemistry into the game. When this
tricky forward was called for steps. the ball was taken out on the side lines. We caught it on
the court with our Graduation Pictures. Just as we were about to score, Dramatics hacked and
we were allowed two free shots. Our forward put the ball through by presenting "Madonna
ot the Rose" and "Little Women". Time out was taken to visit Buhl Planetarium. Their in
we leaped into the air and intercepted the ball as it was passed to Music, threw it to one of our
forwards who took a pivot shot and scored two points with the operetta "Cinderella." Passing
excitedly through Commencement Week we again got possession of the ball of Knowledge and
tossed for our last sensational basket, Graduation. The game was over. Now that we had
scored a decisive victory our coach and referees were ready to send us on Life's gym to defeat
Confiding in thy goodness and mercy we cast ourselves at thy sacred feet. Let it not be
said, our dearest Mother, that we have failed where everyone else has found success.
THE LAST WILL AND TESTAIVIENT

B. V. M. SODALITY
As a result of Father O'Connell's enthusiastic encouragement, we pupils at Annunchrtion
High are active members of our Lady's Sodalrty. This bond being established so firmly while
we are still at school will be a lasting link after we have been graduated. Every fourth Tuesday
of the month we have a meeting in the new club room of Norwood Hall where we plan projects
whose completion and success show that we know how to manage a bake sale, how to raise
money and collect gifts for poor children, how to serve a supper to the congregation, and how to
hold an old fashioned nickelodeum, and most important how to act as children of a QUEEN.
This club was most active during the first semester. Many trick or novel experiments
were demonstrated in the hall for the benefit of the sophomores and freshmen. The president
of the club, Mary Louise Onilor, has seine interesting surprises planned tor observation, and
the other members of the club are preparing for a science exhibition to be held the first week
CATHOLIC ACTION CLUB
One of the features of every well organized Catholic High School is a Catholic Action
Club. We know that this club has been successful in awakening us to the realization that we,
Catholic students, should be lay apostles. Many eloquent conferences were held in behalf of
home and foreign missions. Among the first fruits was the great enthusiasms shown at the
call et The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine for volunteers to teach Sunday School for the
children in distant mining towns and in vicinities where there is no Catholic school. The follow-
ing girls who generously answered the call have been remarkably faithful in attending their
classes regularly: Margaret Frazier, Jean Vuletich, Maureen Ferguson, Ethel Hergenroeder,
Mary Carcara, Catherine Mesonka, Margaret Phillips, Mathilda Weber, Dorothy Vuletich,
Bernice Shanahan, Anna Mae I-lergenroeder, Elizabeth Bastetter, Mary Berry, Mary Mill,
Olive Blazier, Bita Mack, Mary Nee, Marcella Krance, Loretta McBride, Eileen Davis.
Another feature sponsored by the Juniors was to present a Lenten Play, "A Ftobe for
The King" and give the proceeds to the missions.
For the past three years our Handmaids of the Blessed Sacrament have seen to it that
every day one of their members spends an hour with their Eucharistic Friend.
LE CEBCLE DE LA JEANNE D'ABC
The members of this French club have profited much during the past year by the interest-
ing programs presented at their bi-weekly socials. French songs, plays, and dialogues com-
prised an enjoyable schedule which was supplemented by a forum which discussed the French
civilization, authors, and art.
The Seniors organized the Commercial Club to arouse interest in the use of good English
and to become acquainted with practical business procedure. Under the direction of Mae
Cox, the president, the rnemhers presented various programs on the third Friday of each month.
These included a series of instructive plays, discussions on business technique, and a few minutes
