BABCOCK, D.D., LL.D BISHOP OF GRAND RAPIDS 69 RANSOM -x MILESTONES-- "Evolutiong an unfolding, a process of opening out what is contained or implied in somethingg a devel- opment as leading to a definite end." . . . . Webster An exact measurement of l958's intellectual and moral productivity as related to Aquinas College will never be found in office statistics. lt would be impossible to measure the potentiality which was actuated this year as almost l,OOO students met in classes, discussion groups, and chapel to advance the "evolution" of their own lives. Effects of this inner growth were felt by the student, his family, his friends, and, in a more abstract sense, by the college itself. As we can iudge the spiritual development of a student only by exterior effects, so we here attempt to view the development of Aquinas College in terms of material expan- sion - keeping in mind the underlying spiritual force which upholds it as an institution and motivates its faculty to "open out what is contained or implied" in reality. lk l Y The name Aquinas College dates from l940. Before that time it had been called by three other namesg Mary- wood College, Sacred Heart College and Catholic Junior College. In i942 the first co-ed graduating class of Aquinas was made up of five men and four women who attended classes at 69 Ransom Street. Later in that year the school acquired a building at 53 and 55 Ransom Street which was used as a dormitory called Marion Hall. Eight men students lived there with a certain Father Bukowski who thought of him- self as a sort of "house father." The following year saw the first Dominican Father on the regular faculty, Father Peter Reilley, O.P. He may be said to be responsible for the mass infiltration of Dominican priests which followed.

Today the building once more serves in its original capacity as a convent for the Dominican sisters who teach in the college proper. i il i A marked evolution in campus facilities can be demonstrated when the original one-room Jordan Hall is compared to the present structure in which the old building, named for Blessed Jordan, a Do- minican teacher, is incorporated. Albertus Hall, once the garage of the Lowe estate, is now adapted for use as a science building. ALBERTUS HALL ,gmail- JORDAN HALL Q li -4 is '+ ll " m Ill , S MV kg! Iwi' 1 'P W The Field House, left, which contains 1. gymnasium, large classroom, showers, lock- er rooms and an office, is the center of all physical education activities. On November 18, 1953, ground for a new T-shaped Administration Building was broken. On September 29, 1954, the cornerstone was laid and by the following summer classes were being held in that edifice. All administrative offices, most of the instructional offices, classrooms, chapel, libraries and cafeteria are now contained in the completed structure. ln October of 1955 a grand event took place. The cafeteria opened . . . a long wait for a cup of coffee. lA few glimpses of the present Administration Building under construc- tion are given on page 11.1 The Dominican priests reside at 143 Lakeside Drive, N.E., while Marywood, 2025 Fulton East, serves as a Motherhouse for the sisters.

You earned your cap by diligent study and a sin- cere interest in becoming a graduate nurse. You have several months ahead during which time you will study various phases of nursing. Each course you study is an important part of the total curriculum. Each course will demand serious study and atten- tion to detail. You will find new ex- periences each day you enter the hos- pital. It is your responsibility to turn these experiences into learning ones.

Mary Patricia Miller and,Robert Niedzielski, 1957 royalty, officially opened the fun- filled period and Aquinas danced.

A broken balloon, a bent dart, hoarse voices, the iingle of coins being counted, the clack of adding machines, these were the remnants of a profitable weekend. Weary student arms pushed broom handles and pulled apart temporary carnival equipment, then Aquinas went back to work. -N ,Nix Q ' iw gn .y 3.

Nowak found this particular collegiate year a busy time. Besides ne- gotiating for music, decorations, and between- dance snacks for hungry Aquinites, they helped ar- range for the original entertainment which is a feature at every Circle. The dances, held at frequent intervals throughout the year, offer hard-working students an opportunity to dance, sing, play cards or pool - in a word -- relax. The Thomist doffs its literary cap to all who have contributed time and labor for the ever-popular Circles, They have become one of the most pleasant traditions at Aquinas College. 5l-N NQQ if-:g"f5? if 5 X X T X fx X W X Q 1 X , XX X xx 89 KA YW' A if--:gm I FY wx I hrlstmas Clrc F7 WJ Q 3 fu?

Garry, O.P., S.T.Lr., Ph.D., conducted a closed retreat for women at the college December 6-8. Upperclass women participating displayed ad- mirable fortitude as they kept a three-day period of silence to better concentrate on spiritual real- ities often overlooked in the turmoil of day-to-day life. Another retreat, conducted by Rev. Terence O'Shaughnessy, O.P., S.T.Lr., S.T.D., was held on campus February 26-28. Y Student life can be confusing, and it often is. "Where am I going? Why am l here at all?" These are question which frequently pop into the minds of students as they rush from classes to work to meals to studies to classes again. A quiet time in which to relax, to meditate, and to ponder the future is afforded at the annual student retreat for men. This yefir the Rev, Philip Hanley, O.P., S.T.Lr., conducted both men's retreats which took place on campus February 21-23 and February 26-28.

It is Aquinas' attempt to fulfill the wishes she expressed there. The ceremony, witnessed by visitors from all over the state consisted ofa procession, coronation, sermon, and Benediction. A living rosary was com- posed of Catholic students chosen from the Grand Rapids diocese. The Rev, Alan Smith, O.P., dis- cussed St. Thomas as a biblical scholar in the Academic Day ad- dress. The yearly event began with high mass at St. Thomas church celebrated by Rev. Thomas Hen- nessy, O.P. The Victoria Mass, with a Credo from Missa Brevis by Palestrina, was sung by the college choir.

Baker Memorial trophy, pictured above, is to be awarded to 1958's top senior athlete at the Senior breakfast in June. Baker, belove Aquinite who returned to coach at his alma mater for seven years, died shortly after final exams in June, 1957. His personal warmth, his dedication to student development, both men- tal and physical, and his perseverance will always be remembered by those who have had contact with him in class or outside of it. The 33-inch high trophy has been presented by the Aquinas Alumni Association as a tribute to the deceased athletic director. Each student winner of the trophy lwhich carries more than material value with itl will receive a plaque symbolic of the award and will have his name inscribed on the trophy. The Thomist salutes the as-yet unnamed winner for 1958! Mr. Ray E. Null took over duties as basketball and baseball coach this year. Formerly University of Detroit athletic director, Null now heads the physical education department at Aquinas as an assistant professor. Under his able direction Aquinas this year saw its basketball team improve by leaps and bounds in a single season. As the Thomist went to press the baseball team was still in the formative stage, but both students and faculty expected a similar record from the Aquinite baseball nine. The Thomist salutes coach Null for the trully fine work he has done and also notes that he is a man well able to carry on and add to the development of collegiate athletics begun under coach Baker.

The huge 6 ft. 6 in. frame of Ralph Coleman turned a disastrous year into a "rags to riches" story in the 1957-58 basketball season at Aquinas. Coleman, two-time all-State center from Lansing St. Mary's who ioined the Tommies at the start of the second semester, averaged 24.4 points a game as he sparked the reiuvenated Tommies to six straight wins at the end of the season. Coleman's top performance was a 37-point eHort in the 87-84 victory over Soo Tech, Coleman scored 31 points and iump shot artist Art Champion added 30 in the team's 100-66 triumph over Alpena Community College.

Q, STUDENT SENATE The student governing body of Aquinas College, known as the Student Senate, is a representative organization headed during i957-1958 by Floyd McCoy, president, John Schrerrs, vice-president, Elizabeth Geller, secretary, and Mary Ellen Sloan, treasurer. Each class and organization sends representative members to Senate sessions as college-wide proiects and problems are treated. The group cooperates with faculty members in an effort to deal more effec- tively with student matters and affairs touching on 130 the general well-being of the college. Among matters decided in the monthly sessions are proper regulation of student conduct and a rec- ognized form of procedure for classes and organiz- ations of lesser size. Most outstanding social function of the Senate is its co-sponsorship of the annual Gala Weekend with the college administration. Since the group represents the entire college mem- bership, it carries the strength of Aquinas principles into civic as well as inter-collegiate activities. NATIONAL FEDERATION OF CATHOLIC COLLEGE STUDENT Some of the most important obiectives of the National Federation of Catholic College Students lNFCCSl are: to foster Catholic principles among college students, to function as a unifying force for the lay apostolate, and to present a united Catholic front on current world affairs. The Fort Wayne Regional Workshop, held on September 28-29, l957, gathered together members from tive area colleges as Aquinas College acted as host. Dr. O. D. Roberts, Dean of Men at Purdue ,rim I 'Q-P L "N-1 University, and Mr. Joseph Hansknecht were guest speakers. NFCCS has two very active regional officers at Aquinas, John Burns, treasurer, and Beth Geller, secretary. Senior delegate representing the school is Thomas Casaletto. Junior delegates are George Colburn and Mary Ann Hawkins. ,yes v- , '73 . 1 v J JV fir? -, -ll COLLEGE CHOIR Music! music! music! - is truly evident and characteristic of the college choir when it meets for noon and evening rehearsals. With sincerity of purpose and unfaltering spirit the choir has achieved much towards its obiective-a better understanding and appreciation for the classics-under its new director Franz W. Hoelscher. Fulfilling its role of public appearances, the choir has furnished music on the following occasions: Rosary Procession, Christmas Concert, Honors Convocation, College Omnibus, Passion Concert, Marian Congress, and Commencement. Maior work presented was Johann Sebastian Bach's "Passion According to Saint John." Soloists 'for the March 30 event, presented at Saint Cecilia auditorium, were Louise lmperi Labozzetta, soprano and Aquinas graduate of '45, Robert Pratt, tenor, Oberlon Conserv- atory, Norman Bradley, bass, Western Michigan University, and Thixton Sprenger, bass, Grand Rapids resident. Otticers of the Choir were Carol Weatherman, president, Riley Dennett, vice-president-secretary, and Jeannine Pulte, treasurer. Pianists were Mr. Dennett, Yvonne Greiner and Joanne Yuhasz. il-D ENGINEERS' CLUB ln order to advance professional knowledge and enthusiasm among engineering students a club was formed in the spring of l957 at Aquinas College. Begun under the leadership of Mr. William Franzen and promoted by Richard Wakulat, the Engineers' Club has undertaken varied proiects. Among those completed to date have been the re- juvenation of the old veranda on the northeast side of the present Convent Building, operation of a booth during Gala Weekend festivities, construction of a Nativity scene near the Robinson Road entrance at Christmastime, and the publication of an anti- intellectual iournal known as The Phi Press. Technical movies, talks by prominent engineers, and tours to places of interest have been featured at the monthly sessions. Dues, collected on a se- mester basis, cover operational costs. Officers are elected in late spring by freshmen and take office the following semester. Directing activities for 1957-58 were Ron Grzybowski, presi- dent, Peter Cybulskis, vice-president, and Maureen Dungey, secretary-treasurer. Faculty advisor was Mr. Richard Sedlecky. ind sm- Jnr we J' 1 P! W' as ,N ,,,.f,f-- Q 'fb fi 133 4 S N OMEN'S LEAGUE The Women's League, a campus organization which aims for unity and coordination among women students, is an active group at Aquinas College. Chief among activities this year was a iewelry sale conducted under the direction of League Presi- dent Roberta Orr. Proceeds were used to purchase equipment for the girls' tennis team and to provide funds to enable the team to attend regional 134 tournaments. Mary Lynn Robach was general chairman of the annual League fashion show, "My Fair Lady," held March 12, l958, at the Morton House. Directing and coordinating all activities were Roberta Orr, president, Mary Ann Hawkins, vice- president, Judy Lee, secretary, and Madeline Sadowski, treasurer. MEN'S UNION A rather loosely knit organization to which all mem students on campus belong is the Men's Union. The Union Room, located on the ground floor of the Administration Building, is the center of most of its activity. Members gather here between classes, after school, or in the evening to study, play the ever popular ping-pong, or to "set back". President Jake Fuller was assisted in his official duties by vice-president Bob Crampton, secretary Norman Farhat and treasurer Tom Mayan. Plans for the year were to include a ping-pong tournament for members who have devoted most of their spare time to between class practice, a smoker and a beach party. l L """Y 135 SPANISH CLUB One of the more active organizations at Aquinas is the Spanish Club which this year began its activ- ities under the direction of Dr. Gines M. Maiques. Besides fostering interest in the Spanish lan- guage and familiarizing American students with Spanish custom and tradition, the group sponsored the Sock Hop Dance and'raised money which was sent to victims of the Valencian flood. Members planned to sponsor another dance during April. George Colburn served as president with Mar- garet Gazella, vice-president, Sue Agostini, secre- taryg James Casper, treasurer. W,-M GERMAN CLUB The German Club was formed for a dual purpose, to get Aquinites together for social gatherings and to gain a clearer understanding of Germanic peoples. Officers serving for the first semester were David Lake, president, Patricia Miller, vice-president, Irene Hill, secretary, and Katherine Messing, treasurer. Since its formation in 1954, the Club has been very active. Among activities each year are an tml- - annual banquet held at the conclusion of first se- mester exams, a Christmas party, and the eagerly- awaited trip to Milwaukee in the spring. The Club also sponsors panel discussions in which various members of the faculty and guests participate. At the Gala Weekend members sponsored an "Old HeideIberg" booth which contributed to make the all-school proiect a big success. iiii ART CLUB A relatively new group at AqJinas, the Art Club began its second year of activity during 1957-58 under president Chuck Solon and secretary-treasurer Marilyn Dowler. Besides numerous painting iaunts to the country, members met regularly to hear illustrated talks on ig Mai' x 7 , 731 fl ,ww XX 'LQ f ' 1 nj It , kk. Qi :ani f R l "the masters", to criticize one another's work, or to talk about their favorite subiect-art. Among plans to be put into effect were a trip to the Chicago Art Institute and sponsorship of the annual student exhibition on campus in May. ces THIRD ORDER OF SAINT DOMINIC The Aquinas College chapter of the Third Order of St. Dominic is a spiritual organization whereby lay people may become an integral part of the Dominican family, :oartaking of its spirit, benefits and fruits in a manner conforming to their secular mode of life. Members of the Aquinas chapter, under the di- rection of Rev. Fr. John Donahue, O.P., recite the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary every Friday in addition to special meetings tor novices. During 1957-58 members participated in the Provincial Congress ofthe Third Order iOct. l2-l4l at Columbus, Ohio, the National Congress lMarch l-4-l6l in Chicago, Illinois, which was a preparation for the meeting of the International Congress ofthe Third Order of St. Dominic to be held August 25- 30, 1958, at Rome, Italy. s in chapel.

Support and encouragement from departmental instructors Miss Donna Rydzewski and Mr. Eugene Smith gave impetus to the organization. Robert Wisz and Mary Ellen Hands filled offices as president and secretary-treasurer, respectively. A constitutional draft was presented to members by the newly-appointed committee for ratification in a subsequent meeting. ln its final form the ratified constitution sets forth these obiectives: A. To promote greater interest in the field of biology among Aquinas students, B. To raise funds for the purchase of depart- mental equipmentg C. To make a more complete social and ed- ucational program available to all college students. ,-.. IOLOGY CLU f-af' ,An-this 5.4 ,.... A 'ss ,. .5 , ,If PR it A ii rt!

Although comparatively new, the League has grown rapidly and now numbers fifty members. ' Qi Otticers of the League, Edward Stephan, presi- dent, Richard Crompton, vice-president, Marilyn Pierce, secretary, and Peg Hart, treasurer, preside as bowlers clash weekly in intramural competition at Northfield Lanes. ' 4 hu. sm, A agp .lui y li lt' GAMMA ALPHA Pl "Gradus ad parnassum"-always striving for the highest-is the motto of the Aquinas music society. Its obiectives are to promote a general interest and appreciation for music in all its branches, and to encourage a spirit of mutual cooperation and helpfulness among members in both instru- mental and vocal divisions through active participa- tion and performance. Officers this year were Carol Weatherman, presi- dent, Riley Dennett, vice-president-secretary, and Jeannine Pult, treasurer. Members were Joseph Westdorp, Robert Conn, Marlene Schmidt, Janet VanLeeuwen, Jack Fortner, Rosemary Eddy, James Donahue, Joseph Maurer, Richard Maurer, William Gyure, Robert Lodato Kathleen Jenks and Lois Lehman. 1 LAMBDA IOTA TAU Lambda lota Tau is a national honorary society intended to foster interest in English and foreign literature. The Aquinas Beta chapter, made up of literature and language students maintaining a better-than- average scholastic record, endeavors to exchange ideas to the profit ot its own student body as well as that of other institutions of higher learning. This year the election of the national executive secretary was carried out through efforts of Beta members. E Sheila Smith, president, Sister Ann Elizabeth, O.P., secretary-treasurer, and Miss Mary Ann Se- ward were ofticers for l957-1958. First semester members also included Sister Lisa Marie, O.P., Sis- ter M. Mercedes, O.P., Mrs. Sally Orgren, and Patricia C. Miller. New initiates were welcomed at a ioint session with the Nazareth College chapter of Lambda in the latter part of the second semester.

FRENCH CLUB Aiming to acquire a more comprehensive knowl- edge of France, her people, and most especially her language, the French Club was an active or- ganization on campus during 1957-58. Besides practicing French at monthly club gather- ings, the organization fostered a happy student- instructor relationship that made for greater ease and facility in academic activities. Members participated in one of the Circles as they presented a mock style sl-ow at intermission 144 time. National Language Week was tittingly ob- served when the group spent a full day using only French to communicate with friends in the cafeteria. In May, a series of three plays lin French, of coursel was also scheduled to be presented. Officers for the French Club were Donna Locke, president, Joan Gamm, vice-president, Wanda Kochanek. secretary, Ann Mason, treasurer, and Carmela Selvaggio, publicity. VARSITY CLUB Aiming to encourage college athletics, the Versity Club this year sponsored several functions which lent money, spirit, or both to varied athletic endeavors at Aquinas. An official Club charter was prepared under the direction of coach Mr. Ray Null and club advisor Mr. Louis Clingman. Officers directing activity were Dan Pupel, president: Jim Vogel, vice-president, Chuck Budnick, secretaryg and Jake Fuller, treasurer. A very successful pep-ralley was co-sponsored with the cheer- leaders. Main feature of the event was a huge outdoor bonfire around which students gathered to be officially introduced to mem- bers of the basketball team by the new coach. Varsity members also sponsored a Homecoming Dance at the Row Hotel where Mr. Null crowned Mary Ellen Sloan as queen and Mr. Fuller as king of the affair. A banquet and possible beach party were being considered as final activities of the year. X CREDIT UNION The Credit Union- most familiar and well- known organization on campus - makes it possible for many who would normally be forced to give up their college education to continue with studies and receive degrees. Since some 70'A, of the Aquinas student body works part-time during the school year, the Credit Union provides them with a handy and safe means of drawing high interest rates on savings as well as providing loans at low rates of interest. lts members, who can be students, alumni, fac- ulty, or employees of the college, elect a Board of Directors annually to determine policies. Organized in April, 'l954, with 53,000.00 in its coffers, the Credit Union now has assets of over S25l,0O0.00. Over S600,000.00 has been loaned out to date - testimony to the number of Aquinites finding the organization useful. Board members determined in January, 1958, are Joseph L. Hansknecht, Jr., president, Mrs. Sally Orgren, vice-president, John Westerman, secretary, and Mr. Kenneth Marin, treasurer. Officers for the past year were the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Arthur F. Bukow- ski, Robert Kranz and Thomas HuFford. Approving or reiecting all loan applications is the Credit Committee, composed this year of Joseph Murphy, Mr. Eugene Smith and Mr, Burt Kelley. E s rw SKI CLUB As the snow fluttered down upon Caberfae, Udell Hills, or Boyne Mountain, members of the Ski Club could be found enioying the fun of their favorite sport. Among activities for the past season were many trips to various ski areas around the state. Again this year, plans were being made to attend and participate in the inter-colle- giate Ski Meet at Boyne Mountain. This Ski Meet has proved to be most popular among the many college clubs in Michigan, and is the highlight of the skiing season for competition between teams. Elected officers for the past year were Ralph Hauenstein, presi- dent, Tom Gibson, vice-president, Marty Miller, secretary: and Dave Milanowski, treasurer. The club was organized to give ski enthusiasts at Aquinas a chance to enioy a worthwhile sport and to promote interest in a fast rising popular sport. Happy to report a record of no broken bones for the entire season, the club is proud of careful and conscientious skiers who continue to uphold its motto - "Down the hill, into the pines!"
