FOREWORD Our little fictional character, named " Tommy Falcon, " beams approvingly out at you as he acknowledges the accomplishments of his namesakes, the Aquinas men. Bearing a regal name, Tommy embodies all we strive for. All we would like to be. He wears the robes of scholastic excellence; he dons the athletic attire of the athletes; he perseveres in religious principles and doctrines; he encourages all noble achievements. Tommy finds the God-given talent spectrum of Aquinas men outstanding. He knows that being human, as we are, each has been blessed with his own talent. It is the individual ' s responsibility to excel in that talent. We are not all scholastic mental geniuses; we do not all possess athletic prowess; we are not all capable in the various arts. Perfection in the sense that one excels in all things does not exist. Some students are enriched more abundantly with their ability to produce than others. We shall find ourselves in this book doing that which we do best. Tommy is proud of all of us. Tommy has an outstanding namesake to live up to and he demands that we work diligently for admirable results. St. Thomas of Aquinas was a teaching philosopher, a plodder, and a writer who excelled in the writing of theological books. The Fal- con, called the American peregrine, is the aristocratic bird in the sport of falconry. He is beautifully feathered, sleek, sure-footed, keen-eyed, and swift of motion. In this fictional character ' s name, we have the courageous writer-scholar and the courageous fleet-footed and agile athlete. Tommy will be seen gleefullv surrounding students of academic and writing talents. He will then don a football helmet, hold a basketball, swing a bat, run in the track, or perhaps swing a tennis racket. He loves the game of chess, blowing up the science laboratorv with his experiments, or attending and encouraging social events. You will see him assisting during the sacrifice of the Mass. Here is where he finds his peace, his strength, and his love for God and his fellowmen. The students of Aquinas, like Tommy Falcon, wish to thank this new administration for the spirited drive it has shown, the endless hours of energies they have spent in our behalf. We thank Fr. Robert Nagler, our principal, and the entire faculty. Their actions of today mean our successes for tomorrow. To the graduates, we say, " Take Tommy Falcon with you in spirit wherever life ' s road may lead. Persevere in all undertakings and keep his lofty ideals high by consummating your works into successful reality. " The Staff

Fr. Desmond Fr. Murray We, the students of Aquinas offer, in grateful appreciation, the Summa of 1967 in honor of our past principals. Our past principals have enlightened each Aquinas man with their progressive per- suasiveness in the fields of leadership, character building, scholastic achievements, and a fervent knowledgeable spirit in religion. We, the students of today, enjoy parochial education because our principals were bulwarks of persistency in their devotion to Catholic education — no sacrifice too great, no labor too laborious — always remarkably reluctant to relinquish the goal of excellence in the classroom and of the athletic field. In sincere appreciation, alwavs mindful of your difficult road in our behalf, we salute each and every one of you. Collectively we say, " Thank you, past principals of Aquinas, for your scholarly teachings and spiritual guidance. " The Staff
