Quizzically she slams her friend's open locket. But she hurries to her homeroom as the warning bell announces the beginning of her busy day. Unable, perhaps, to remember that difficult Latin idiom or French phrase, she keeps trying and "keeps smiling." Imagining who will be her date for the semi-formal, the Aquinian dreams of pink chiffon and dehcate corsages. Normally cramming for an exam in history or English or religion, she uses her Intellect, memorizing dates or spelling words or chemistry equations. Always on the go, she rushes through the hall. in an air of anticipation. Never forget that the Aquinian ' mmmv .535 :gRDADWAV WM mm n; m, , , $115531 3, figuzenir I ' the graduating chm: of p161an saw the first class to complete trulLQ ".1 v at years at the new Aqumnxy 16 students of Aquinas delicate our 1001 Administrators Excel in Rev. E. j. McFadden, pastor Leadership What does Aquinas mean? Take the word apart. "A" - "Admirable" - "Amiable" - but after all Mary is the "Mater Amabius." "Q" - "Quality" rather than quantity. "U" - "Ultra" - beyond what is common. "I" - "Ideals" high - what else. "N" - "Neat" - "Nice" - hackneyed perhaps but can one be nice with- out being neat - it also means pleasing, agreeable, well-mannered. HA" - And now we can use the "Admirable." "S" - The synthesis - put them all together - and we reach the goal, the natural result, "Sanctity." These are the marks we look for in a student at Aquinas.

Possessing the characteristics of patience, humor, gentleness, and integ- rity, the faculty endeavors to instill love and ttuthfullness into the hearts and souls of Aquinians. These self-sacrificing women give of their time and effort that the Aquinian may grow in wisdom and in Christian ideals. MRS. KATHLEEN MANLEY World Problems, World His- tory, Typing 1 SR.

Mrs. Crawford, As the year began, Mothersh Club pre- sented their style show, HFashion U.S.A." This successful project, a rummage sale, and other fundaraising activities provided the needed funds to aid both the faculty and the girls. Behind the scenes, these women help the Aquinian in her every pursuit. Greeting the Aquinian with a cheerful HGood Morning," Mrs. Mitchell may be seen walking hurriedly through the class- rooms or working efficiently in the office. Mrs. Hamish, with a smile on her lips, performs her duties as typist and all- around secretary with understanding and perseverance. If food makes the heart grow fonder, then Mrs. Crawford has warmed the hearts of many. As chief cook and kitchen super- visor, she delights everyone with her talent for serving delectable luncheons. Her sincerity. and cheerfulness are an integral part of Aquinas. Mothers' Club officers admire books presented to Aquinas by the club. 0. to r0 seated, Mrs. A. Nordi, vice-president; Mrs. E.

Rappin Four years ago the class of i61 came to Aquinas with eagerness and temerity. The school was new - so new that the smell of fresh paint was everywhere. The buzz of the drills and saws and the continuous hammering often interrupted classes. Then as Sophomores, the Seniors hit the surf with their Soph-Frosh tolo, "Coral Dreams." Their Junior year brought many mem- ories - of their style show, HUn Pue de Paris," of their exotic prom, "Shangri- la," of an evening with their mothers at OF F ICERS A-K Pres. M. A.

As Seniors, the class of i61 danced with their fathers at the annual Father- Daughter Banquet. And they reigned over the formal festivities of the Senior Ball, Junior Prom, and Coronation Ball. As the Seniors departed from their Alma Mater to begin lifeis long journey, they left a small part of themselves behind. They will al- ways remain in spirit and in the friend- ships they fostered during their four mem- orable years at Aquinas.

Among other things, it gave them the thrilling opportunity of choosing their class rings. After success- fully beginning the year with a sweat shirt sale, they worked zealously on their Mother-Daughter Banquet and their style show.

No longer green, the Sophomores enthu- siastically initiated plans for their biggest social event of the year - the Soph-Frosh toio. With determination to make their semi-formal a success, they eagerly began to obtain needed funds for the important event on February 4. Their pancake and hot roll sales on first Fridays were a large success. Another successful Sophomore- sponsored project, which was not only work but also fun, was their car wash. E. Smith, 13.

"Busy" is the word which best describes our active student council. During the year they initiated many unusual but enjoyable activities: Courtesy Week, Safety Week, open student council meetings, an exchange assem- bly with Saint Leois, Career Day, Citizenship Assembly, and Publicity Club. These are only a few of the outstanding contributions which these devoted girls made, with the hope that their school might be a little better. Under the competent leadership and unity of student council members, Aquinians grew wiser and stronger, and many hearts were filled with a greater appreciation of the high ideals of our school. Mimi Petrich presents Student Council members at the first open meeting of the year. Prayers and Activities Typify Our Lady's Sodality has been exceed- ingly active during the year. Each com- mittee had its special achievements. At Christmas time Vocation Club purchased office books to give the Postulants who graduated from Aquinas last June.
