In so far as this yearbook will be held sacred in the memories of Aquin students, we dedicate it to Sister Mary Naomi, O.P. We declare that throughout the past six years she has been to us a loyal and revered friend, and that during the years to come we wish her to remember us as her friends. It is with feelings of deep devotion, therefore, that we inscribe her name upon the dedicatory leaf of this volume. le Rev. Peter Watgen - Rev.

Their respective pilots were Sisters Gaetana and Marie Paul. Entered in the log during this nine month tour of work, play, and general chscsi Septembeismdeneral disorder is caused by confused Freshmen, wan- dering through the nail: of Aquin, mumbling phrases such as, Hwhere is 104???T?H October--The Freshman class is well represented on the gridiram by varsity letter winnina Sim Wye, Bill McEoes, and Tom Malone. Judy Reitinger takes several trips in the helicopter to get magazine subscriptions, winning top place among the Freshman class in the contest. November--Fall Festival with novelty booths manned by volunteers from 106 and 205. ment Chosen to supply pep and encouragelfor the Fresh-Soph basket- ball team are Judy 0'Connell and Judy Reitinger. December--Christmas formal is the first attended by the Freshmen in a group. It is enjoyed by all. January--Semester exam blues are over with the start of the second temm. Tony Guiffre's and Charles Vittorio's steam turbine in science class gives Sister Paulinus and the class a real understanding of the machine AND plenty of laughs. Februar!--Mary Jo Wilson and John Reitinger carry the banners of the Freshman class in the Mardi Gras. Fresh-Soph team ends basketball season with a fovorable record. u March--A near riot occurs when Mike Steffen displays his orange sock amid the many shades of green on Saint Patrick's Day. April--Steve Rodemeyer and Marilyn Mook take a two-hour Latin test to be entered in a contest sponsored by Rosary College. Science fair and iunior Academy of Science Convention is attended by: , Steve Rodemeyer, hichard Ziebol, Mike Steffen, Sheila Bach, Bill Eel- quadrigae Gratias. Judy the first sheets of Mclloes, 'rom Nlalone and Sisters Coleta and Paulinus. -In Latin the much read about Lucius finally wraps his around Ceasar's victory column. No more Lucius. Deo 0'Connell, Helen Rohde, and Frances Ciganek are busy in aid room patching up the blisters they acquired in folding paper for the year-book. June--Freshmen have the vacation jitters. Special talents among freshmen discovered in the past year: John Woods crashed the four minute mile lhalf-mile, that isl. Future track star? Anne Cunningham seems to be quite a shutterbug. Has she put in her application for Pit Cassidy's job? We are looking forward to Dick Ziebol, John Reitinger, Billy Merchant, Dick Bendick and all the other rising young stars of the Fresh-Soph basketball team bringing home the State Championship in future years. The passengers have left ships 106 and 205 and are enroute to Satellite Sophomore, revolving on orbits 206 and 207. Can these passengers be the same Hidiotsn who registered at the Start of the trip? 7 OPERATION SOPHOMORES N 'Tenshun! All right, you guys and gals, you're no longer brash tenderfeet. Having graduated from the ranks of lowly Fresh- men I'll expect you to act like there are some brains in your heads Companies 206 and 207 are your assignments. Courses will be taken fn biblogy, religion, geometry, and English. OH! by the way, you might welcome Private Dwayne Illes who transferred from Camp St. Joseph's High in South Bend, Indiana. See that he gets acquainted with everything. That's an order. Dismiss! H HHow do you do, I'm the court recorder. Who's on trial, you ask? The Sophomores. HTheir crime?n Failure to understand geometry. The prosecution has just taken the stand. First witness Pfc. Bob Schramm.H His it true that during the month of October you were so busy getting magazine subscriptions that you had no time whatsoever to study geometry?N UIt's true that I did get a lot of subscriptions-eighty-seven dollars worth to be exact, but as for not studying geometry, well, it soon became apparent that after a month of it I, and everyone else in class were tunning into mixed-up squares trying to figure it out. All we did was go around in circles.N NAnd so it goes....Alas, the Sophomores are sentenced to a mouth of concentrated study on geometry during which time all out- side activities are forbidden.H nMy name is Sergeant 0'Rougke. I'm here to brief you on your basketball team-the puppies. It ought to be a good team, a real good team with such capable men as Jerry Munda, Jerry Cassidy, Jim Walz, Ronny Sharp, leading the field. I want you to attend all of their games and cheer them up on to victory. That's an order.n The Christmas formal is the social highllghg of the year. Karen Trunk escorted by Andy Hutmacher, and Brian Donahue squiring Carol Medley are among those attending the yuletide dance. 8 January, tentatively called NGet to work month or it's the guardhouse for you,N comes, and takes an eternity to pass. Mid- term exams bring thoughts of going A.w.O.L. to less hardy Sophomores, but, thank God, 1t's over. Congratulations are extended to Sheila Bach on her accomplish- ment of being the first of her classmates to attain a 3.0 average on the honor roll. The Villa Fund is a huge success as everyone from assistant mess boy to commanding general tries to out do each other. And shall we ever forget Father 0'Neill's wonderful Valentine party. Practically every Sophomore from Aquin shows up at one time of another during the evening. The welcoming committee is again put into action upon the arrival of Private Dave Nilles, and two weeks later Peg Heckler, at the fort. - Basketball season ends with a chorus of cheers for our fine team which was victorious in almost every game theyplayed. The fast approaching Mardi Gras engulfs us in a wave of ten- sion and excitement. Pat Downing and Bob Schramm are chosen to represent us. Decorating the gym is a great honor, and we go at it whole-heartedly. With the aid of two Seniors the gym is trans- figured into the most beautiful ballroom ever. Our Candidates weren't king and queen, but the pride in all of our exercises, soon fades away. We find ourselves left with only the month of May. Prepara- tions for the Spring musical are in full swing with Angela Vincer, Janet Duray, Joan Smith, and Sheila Bach in good voice. And how about that lucky Jim Martin getting a special preview of the Junior Senior Prom? The Senior Sophomore breakfast is eagerly awaited by all. Then we can feast in style.

Q t I P'- I EDITION lE CONCESSIONS STAND FRAUD BARED It has been dis- closed to us that in at least one instance the coffee sold at the Aquin football games was well watered. It seems that the stand ran out of the precious brew and a few of the girls went out to borrow some. However, only a few teaspoons of instant coffee were secured, these were mixed with a few quarts of waterg lewis lye was added for strength, and sold as Mcoffeen OVER THE TOP IN MAGAZINE DRIVE.

Q., CHRISTMAS CRASHES CLASSES Christmas parties were enjoyed by all in the classes of French. English, religion and history. These parties came as a complete sur- prise to the sisters. who knew nothing of them, but throughly enjoyed them. News has leaked out that James Scanlon plans to publish in the near future a scientific treatise dealing with the flammability of Keith Souders hair when heki over a bunsen burner. BULLETIN By some sneaky, under- handed maneuver Red McGuire finally got his drivers license. We strongly advise you to sell your cars, keep the kids off the streets and zig zag when running across intersections It s harder to hit a moving target CAREER DAY AT AQUIN Aquin held its second career day with some very informative talks, Orchids of sincere gratitude to all those who gave valuable time and effort to make it possible. M.J.Bangasser, Marion Tobin, Barb Modica, Barb Pfeiffer, Carme Guiffre, Judy Grant, displayed their spirit of free enterprise by grasping every oppor- tunity to manufacture and market such NIC- NACS as shamrocks and green ties for St.Pat. Yarn dollsand corsages for Mardi Gras and pricentagged Freshmen for April first.

Whither are they vanished? Into the airg and what seemed corporal melted As breath into the wind. would they had stayed. We undertook our pfqject with the intention of presenting in pictorial form the story of our sojourn at A Q U I N. R We have tucked within the . pages of our book the record of scholastic and extra-curricularr achievement not of our own class only, but of the other classes as well. Some day in the dusk-shadowed future we shall be glad to leaf through our volume of memories and shall find it pleasing in that day to recall the things pictured here. 14 GOAL--- ----- ---ACCOMPLISHED As we wandered slowly down the halls of Aquin our faces held a look of wonderment and astonishment. We were really in high school! e--N-Almost adults! But what was this all aboute---this changing from room to room for every class? It only helped to mix up our already confused minds a little more than before. Then some of those subjects we had to take! Especially algebra! !hat a horrible thing- didn't quite get it until we were half way through the year. Seems ages past, but looking back it was only four years ago that we were frightened freshmen who stood gawky-eyed at the big handsome senior boys or those lucious senior girls. Incrediblei! Can't you just picture Wayne sitting in algebra Hcharmingu Sister Eymard, or Art Krieger sleeping through history class? REMEMBER the coo fun we had trying to raise money for the Mardi Gras, but we found our efforts in vain, because we came out last anyway? That year we were in- troduced to that Greek language ----- Latin. REMEMBER the many times Sister Marie Paul told Karen she'd talk to a wooden pole if it say next to her---- -G! remember one of Dick Cramer's famous quips? It was the year of our first Student Council with John Lampe and Sam Cardinal elected unanimously to represent our class. REMEMBER our great poetic contribution to the world. VThe Night Before Christmasu which was written by any and everyone in the class, and was published in the school newspaper by Dick Plowman, that dashing young reporter? Then our class picnic!!!!!- ---- --the law of no X swimming was violated by several unmentionable parties ------ when 15 Clare Smith got all wet because Dolores was so interested in some of the boys---L-Leonard's noisy firecrackers sending Maribeth into a panic!i Oh, but those were the years! Sure nuf! We were promoted to Sophomoresw ---- and that unforgetf' able biology class! REMEMBER Janice's red face every time she was sent out of the class---- ----- Mike and Nthe turtlen ---- moans and groans at the sight of the grasshoppers? Couldn't forget geometry, -- all those squares and circles were too much for our pointed little heads. Then Wayne sending post cards from New York----Judy Bean squirting grapefruit in her bye at the senfof breakfast. That Stuff!! Big wheels now. Watch out you underclassmenf! REMEMBER ------ --- those parties? Janet's with Susie Goldsmith's cottonball picking -----Anita's, where Dick Cramer and Carol did a new version of the cake walt ------- Marcia's going away party ----- the Christmas party with Sister Paulinus spinning the discs ---- -the Bunny Hop across the picnic table at Dolores's house? Then the victory of the Mardi Gras with our representatives Russ and Delores crowned king and'queen. Winter ----- with a breakigg of ice by Pat Sieber ---- our operetta, starring John Lampeg our Rudolph Valentino ---- Pat Cassidy's many memory lines-119 wordsl. Then at last it was here. The big thing!! Elem What a Prom it was. We really nsaid It With Music,N the theme which was suggested by John Scanlon. The Grand March ,,,,, the prince and princess, Bob and Judy, all helped to make it a Prom never to be forgotten. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PAINT JOB! Real sharp looking study hall now ----- A lasting trademark of the Class of H55H. Our class picnic 16 where Mary Ann fell ln, and Mary Beth almost landed in Nanother worldu by way of a cliff ----- Kenny Dougherty and Mike Ciganek's chase for the unknown man with the sun glasses and Schaffer pen ----- Deanna's mud stiffened shoes, and Carol's trip across the river to retrieve her Hwalking shoes,H all helped to make the day full of fun. Well, we never thought we'd make it!! Front door at last! The first to the cafeteria at noon. Finally that big moment which every- one had been looking forward to ------ Father Berg's Religion class e--+- Dick Cramer with the Tribune mixed with a cup of Roosevelt made this an interesting brew topped with Clare's Hwalk out.H Then the crazy contest between Kay and Janet for honors ----- Mardi Gras kept us all jumping. Kay won and made a very good queen. CAN WE FORGET ----- 7 :un Geraldine's love for Macbeth ----- our Halloween party or our feeble efforts to concentrate in bookkeeping-----our Easter dance--a big success Cwe managed to come out'w1th a profitj--and the Easter Bunny! -----Pat 0'Connell's playing monkey on the rafters. REMEM ER w---- --- tryouts for our play, Song of Qernadette ----- the wonderful Prom given us by the Juniors ----- the never to be forgotten picnic at White Pines---or the noon reulnvous in 105 with Sister Cecilia presiding over our antics. These are some of the things which we will remember in the years to come. As we walk out of Aquin for the last time, our diplomas clutched tightly in our hands, we will look back over the four years we have spent at Aquin. We have reached the end of our High School Road, a long, rough, and bumpy ride, but one which all of us managed happily to survive. Good-by Aquin!

No more as- semblies with backless chairs! he and Kenny Dougherty made in shop for 1 the Business Department, During an impressive ceremony the senior class presented the juniors with their rings. These rings, blessed by Father Schneide stand as a constant reminder of the rich heritage they signify. Aquin students, under the guidance of Rev. Francis 0'Hara, were privileged to have a two-day retreat, on November 17-18. Father's unique ability to use 'pop' song lyrics and punch a point across in 'jive' really gave us our do's and don't's in our native tongue. Through this tech- nique he coupled our Faith with every day living in a way we could thoroughly understand. Our undying thanks to this servant of God who brought us so much closer to his Master. U..,besides, this man Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been So clear in his great office, that his virtues Will plead like angels, trumpet tongued.H Aquin became a member of the Angelic Warfare Confraternity on March 4, when Father E.C.Baumhoffer, a member of the Diocesan Education Board, explained the purpose and organization of the confra- ternity to the students in an assembly. He and Monsignor C.F. Conley KDirectorJ invested each student with the St. Thomas cord and medal of the Confraternity. The name, Angelic Warfare, is de- rived from the title given to St. Thomas Aquinas, Angelic Doctor. Many popes, particularly Popes Leo X111 and Pius X1 recommended the Angelic Warfare Kits prayers and indulgencesl as a safeguard for the preservation of holy purity. Because Thomas Aquinas is the patron of their school, this enrollment held a special significance for the students of Aquin. IN THE GREAT HAND OF GOD I STAND..U Last year, 1954, was a very special year because it was a Marian Year, that is, a year dedicated particularly to the patronage of our Blessed Mother. Mary must have blessed her children at Aquin on the night of December 1 because of the honor given to her in the Marian Year Celebra- tion. The program was a living Rosary. The prayers of the Rosary were said in the darkened gym, lit solely by candles carried by the members of the glee club. Choral readings accompanied the tableaux which realistically represented the Joyful mysteries of the Rosary This celebration was a fitting sequel to the Perpetual Rosary Crecitation of the Rosary in the Chapel every day of the school year during each period of the class day by two studentsl which has prevailed at Aquiu for the past five years.

Since that time, Mr. Dawson's gridders have racked up a l for 16 record, while the basketball squad set up an impressive record of 20 for h3. A brief glimpse into the life of our Coach, Mr. Dawson, is a diffi- cult task because of his many sporting activities. Coach Dawson attended Defiance college, Defiance, Ohio, graduating with a Bachelor of science Degree in Education. During these years he participated in all inter- collegiate sports receiving varsity letters four years in basketball and in football. Until the fall of 1953 he acted as physical education instruc- tor and football coach at the Illinois State Training School for Boys at St. Charles. we are losing Mr. Dawson this year, and we owe him a tribute for the splendid job he's done in handling the boys, both in sports and on the school premises. comenting on his two years at Aquin, Mr. Dawson stated, I have enjoyed working with the students here and hope that the boys at the next school are of as high calibre as the boys at Aquin.W our hats off to Coach DBWBORI gif '1 X I 1-J ra T eA'A I I l'N'kAHf ,M , 1 N'?f+i'B?
