It is the accu- mulation of memories of people who worked together in harmony for the past year; memories which have given us an increased understanding of ourselves and our Creator. This book presents apicture of Aquinas life as it is lived by Aquinas Men. It is an attempt to picture the ideals of a High School; a picture of the Aquinas Man ' s readiness to face the future as a responsible citizen of two worlds; America and Heaven. nC " I l " ■. a 1 ' ' Jj . f " " .• IXjj,} ' ir " „ii " ' inc S ' iit Published by the ASBA, Student Council, Aquinas High School San Bernardino, California Member: Quill and Scroll, International Honor Journalism Society Member: Catholic School Press Association ¥ ' I . rV Staff - Editor-in-Chief Dick Duncanson Layout Les Berkes, Clyde Robinson Art John Dondurand, Bill Gifford Copy .

THE M isnmoN -TBitejr iMMMM iwm- The cultivation of your minds, and unfolding of your talents, and above all the wealth of love in your hearts, are in themselves pov erful forces vvith which to achieve lasting good. Most Reverend Charles F. Buddy, Bishop of San Diego, California. Thoughts of His Heart " Catholic Education, Shield of Faith. " Address, St. Mary ' s College, Notre Dame College, 1938. No responsibility is more grave, no charge more delicate, than the education of Christian youth. No office is more honorable than that which serves their dedicated teachers. — The Very Reverend John C. Desmond Address upon acceptance of the office of Prin- cipal of Aquinas High School, July 27, 1961. FATHER DANIEL LEEN Vice-Principal, English III U. S. History, Religion I FATHER WILLIAM MARCOTTE Dean of Students, Algebro I Geometry, Demonstrotion Physics FATHER RICHARD KINSELLA Upper Division Counsellor, Algebra II Geometry, Trigonometry Calculus, Analytic Geometry The Administration forms school policy which is realized in different ways. This policy dictates con- structive innovations which will insure the highest standards of academic excellence. It promotes the development of plant facilities and curricula. It guar- antees ideal learning and teaching situations, and forms principles enabling students in their free self- regulation to achieve a definite contribution to the American Catholic way of life.

KATHLEEN RANGER, Secretary MRS.ROSE MARIE STROH, Secretory RAY REECE, Custodian MRS. NICE CIABATTINI Housekeeper and Cook Academic courses are the backbone of education. Essential knowledge is provided to lielp ttie student develop mind, tieart, body, and to prepare him for life. It in- spires the reach toward God and fellow- man, to which goals Aquinas humbly con- tributes. co V0-S v |3 Sv p( - c ' osV - DEPARTMENTS Religion The aim of Religion at Aquinas is to trans- late the CATECHISM into a strong and vital force in student lives. The very best of com- petent teachers make Religion come to life in the Aquinas Man. Because students are made aware of the problems which are the cause of current disturbances and shown how these problems may be solved with the aid of religion, the subject-matter of courses in Religion become the most important and interesting in the world. -K Hi Ml •r,l Father Desmond offered the weekly Mass for Students. Father Anderson distributes Holy Communion. Father La Riviere hears Confessions. Mathematics rofis- vilol com- )life ore I the lown illie irsei and Mathematics today is a tool for progress in science. Mathematics is the language of the physicist, the engineer and the chemist. That is why the Aquinas Man is trained in the basic elements of Mathematics as dem- onstrated in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonome- try and Calculus. Should the Aquinas Man desire, he will be ready to proceed to higher courses in college which will enable him to become a scientist, a physicist or an engi- neer. Seniors Kester and Sullivan solve Trig problen Algebra I students Morrison and Flahaven opply formulae for classmates. Science Chemistry, Biology, Physics are taught at Aquinas to reveal to the students the mys- teries of the world. He listens, reads, studies, performs experiments, becomes accurate and observant in v hat he does. He learns the love of truth and order and delights in the wonders of creation. Later he may de- cide to pursue further explorations in space or the use of atoms for peaceful purpose, but at the moment he is concerned with be- coming a dedicated craftsman and a skilled technician. h Gomez and Moyce observe chemical reaction. Juniors Spisak and Henggler perform pulley experi- ment in Laboratory Physics. ' ' J y ■ English The Aquinas Man learns to be expressive in speech and in writing. From the funda- mentals of Grammar to the methods of creative writing, from epic to modern story and drama the reflection of the sameness of conflict, inspiration, dedication and mo- tivation make dead authors come to life as modern and actual. He sees man as terrible in his misery, great in his aspiration and achievement. Living with nobility in thought and expression he can not help but become noble in his ideals and their expression in his daily life. Senior Coffield explains a definition of poetry in Englisfi IV. Languages The Space Age has brought the world closer demanding a better understanding of the needs, customs, ideals and aspira- tions of other countries. The teaching of Latin, French, Spanish, German at Aquinas attempts to fulfill that demand. Latin Spanish French German A devoted Faculty guides the Aquinas Man in his search for the meaning of life and reality. This involves on inquiry into the Good, the True, the Beautiful, as these qual- ities assert themselves in the disciplines of learning.

Faculty members observe Sodality Assembly. Ambitious freshmen hit the books for study. Frosh find free periods a welcome relief in a busy high school progrom. Perhaps no year is so bewildering as Freshman year. The new Student must adjust to new sur- roundings, new methods, new friends and new dis- coveries. The certainties of the future begin to organ- ize and stabilize them- selves in this year of fun, work and agony. Before very long confusion gives way to clearness and the Freshman begins to see his way OS an Aquinas Man.

National Honor Society THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY is a service organization and ex- officio member of the Student Council.lt unitesstudents of high achieve- ment in pursuit of goals of excellence. The Holy Spirit Chapter was chartered in May, 1961 by Father J. Vincent Sullivan. Since then, approximately twentystudents have grad- uated with the National Honor Society Seal, a notional award for con- sistently high grade-point averages and outstanding citizenship throughout high school. With each succeeding year the scope of the Society has broadened. This year, under the direction of Father Richard J. Kinsello, the Society has established definite plans for recognizing achievements of more capable students. This has brought about the use of the Dean ' s List and the scholastic letter award, 41 ■■M Recently established at Aquinas, the Science Club was preceded by the now defunct Math Club. The idea for organizing a Science Club was conceived by Seniors John Dandurand and Mike Hertel and re- ceived its charter from the Student Council in April, 1962. Present plans include a maior science project by the end of each year, assistance to students in the construction of Science Fair projects, a contribution to the scientific library at Aquinas and eventual in- vitations to leading teachers and research scientists of neighboring institutions to discuss current scienti- fic progress and the vocational aspects of the various sciences. Science Club John Dandurand, Science Club President, contemplates the relationship between science and religion with members Lincoln Dennis, Stan Benkoski, and Andy Moyce. Members of the Monogram Club hove distinguished themselves for service to their Alma Mater. Monogram Club The Aquinas High School Monogram Club first came into being in 1960 with Mario Porras as its president. In 1961, Lorry Cruse was elected and had a very successful term of office. Under his leadership the Club began to function as a closely knit body. This year Dennis Wilson, president, leads the Club with theableassistanceof Dan Boyle, Vice-President: John Magnino, secretary-treasurer and Dave Cornel- ison, Sergeant-at-Arms. For the first time in the Club ' s history each class has its own representative. They are appointed by the president and head various committees. With " Spirit and Honor " as its motto, the Mono- gram Club ' s main objective is to create among the student body a keen sense of good sportsmanship and fair play. Secretary-Treasurer Magnino, Sergeant-at-Arms Dave Cornelison, Vice-President Boyle, and President Dennis Wilson led the Mono- gram Club in its finest year of service to the school. JOURNALISM The Falcon Published monthly by the Associated Student Body of Aquinas, the Falcon presents news and features to the Aquinas students during the school year. Other than news the paper runs a series of editorials and features including " The President ' s Column, " " Worth Mentioning, " and the humor column " Nihil Est Sanctum. " The staff is made up of students working in fields of editing, business, sports, lay-out, photography, humor and reporting. Staff members learn journalism by experience and by instruction. The Falcon is one of the main products of the Student Body. It is the result of work by the students and in turn serves the students as a record of events, means of recognition, and source of entertainment. The Falcon serves as communication between students and helps to make a more unified and better informed Student Body. Falcon editors meet to arrange production schedule of newspaper and year book and to determine deadlines. The Staff sacrificed many hours and achieved new standards. The Summa The SUMMA is the annual memory book published by the Journalism Staff of Aquinas High School. In 1961 it won First Honors from the Catholic School Press Association. If has steadily improved its format from year to year. This year ' s edition was sponsored by the Associated Student Body of Aquinas High School. Editors are on the previous page: Dick Duncanson (2nd from right), Editor-in-Chief; John Retry (left) Copy Editor; Les Berkes (2nd from left), Lay-Out; John Dandurand (stand- ing middle), Art Editor. These men put in much time and effort to produce the SUMMA 1963. 45 ' ■ iM ASB President Dick Weening (seated) and Council members Eddie Garcia, Jim Conway, Chris Gilluly and Neil Donat, led the student body to a year of great achievement. The Student Council The Student Council was established in 1961. It comprises a panel of 25 members who govern the Associated Students of Aquinas High School. Nine of the members are eligible to vote on Council deliberations, while the remainder (members of various organ - izations associated with the Council) are allowed to share in Council discussions. Of the nine members permitted to vote, five are officers. The four remaining voting members ore the Presidents of the four high school grades at Aquinas. Each homeroom is permitted a representative at Council meetings. There are three Standing Committees to manage religious affairs, student activity and athletics. The Chairman of these and temporary committees is permitted a seat on the Council. The presidents of the five clubs chartered by the Council represent their respective organiiations. This year the Council has a budget of nearly $8,500 which finances school publica- tions, chartered organizations, and Council activities. Organizations financed by the Council help meet its responsibilities. 46 The Inter-Club Council, formed by presidents of all school organizations met with the ASB Vice-President Jim Conway to coordinote activities. Committee Choirman Brit DuBois, Jim McGuire, Mike Sullivan, and Bill Canavan were responsible for many improvements on the Aquinas campus. 47 t, s -A THE SPORTS 49 Varsity Football Aquinas downed arch-rival Notre Dame of Riverside 20-12 in the first game of the league season. 3 TD ' s were scored by pass- ing, 2 by Benkoski, 1 by McCorkle.

ACTIVITIES 75 Sponsored by the ASBA, the bi-weekly canteens furnish a welcome diversion for students and provide better acquaintance with St. Bernardine ' s High School, the stu- dents of which, alternate with Aquinas on the Canteens. This year, through the gener- osity of ASBA, the music was furnished by live bands, one of which, " THE GENTEELS " is shown above. " THE GENTEELS " have cut records for Capitol Recording Company in Hollywood. The drummer and pianist, Carl Hubert and Mike Gifford, are Aquinas men. Canteens (jtV-ZAWI ifftWif ' .

Sponsored by the Juniors, it includes a formal dinner dance at which Faculty members and Chaperones are invited. This year as last, it was held at the Royal Tahitian, Ontario, California. Much work went into planning this year ' s Prom which marked a first. It was the first time St. Bernardine ' s High School combined with Aquinas for such an event. It is hoped that such combinations will be regularly continued in the future. Prom " Don ' t you think it ' s about lime we eat? " " Why the hurry, you men are always loo practical. " " Thanks for a blasti " ' Do you hove to be so stiff about it? " Father Desmond ponders, and President Crowley listens as Recording Secretary Mrs. Neyses reads minutes of previous meeting. Parents ' Club Men litU ill Once a month (third Wednesday), parents meet with the Principal, Rev- erend John Desmond, and Faculty, to discuss student credit status and college requirements. Both Faculty and Parents benefit from the exchange of ideas. Parents cooperate with the San Bernar- dino County Catholic Scholarship So- ciety to provide scholarships for deserv- ing students to private and state col- leges and universities. They run dances and card parties to improve scholastic facilities at Aquinas. The Booster ' s Club (next page) has improved Ath- letic Facilities at Aquinas with a new football field, track and baseball field and have donated over $20,000 worth of service and supplies for the school and teams. We ask our Patrons ' prayers for the encouragement of both groups. Father Kinsella decided he was a better hand at bridge than Mr. Retry, Mrs. Lippert, of St. Louis U. fame, ond Mrs. Retry. The annual Parents ' Card Party received assists from Mrs. Hennessey and Mrs. D ' Amico, while Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Winkler helped with coffee and pie. You hove to be good to win and it alt goes to Aquinas anyway. 1 A r Booster Officers McCorkle, Favorite J ond Hennessey sweat (?) through a meeting on ways and means.

A new football field, complete with sprinkler system, a new track, broad and high jump pits, shotput rings and baseball diamond with modern stops, a school curb to conform to city and requirements, were donated by the Boosters. Many of the boosters gave up their Saturday free and work days in order to pitch in and encouraged Aquinas team performance by their presence at games and contests. The graduates and remaining student- body thanks the Boosters ' Club for their sincere in- terest in all that concerns Aquinas.
