Summa ' 70 Volume XI Aquinas Higli School Published By The Yearbook Staff San Bernardino, California f trrSi PEAC ' r ■SMttB " - 5 300 45P War, loneliness, hunger, and hatred are all pro- ducts of the injustice of the 1960 ' s. To eradicate hun- ger, replace hatred, and outlaw war, there must be understanding and peace for all mankind; the lofty ideals of the ' 60 ' s must become the realization of the 1970 ' s. This is the " Challenge of the ' 70 ' s. " Ready and eager to meet this challenge are the vibrant, high- powered youth of today. They possess greater knowledge and better understanding of the world than most previous generations. What they lack now is experience. When they gain this experience, they will be ready and able to accept the responsi- bilities which the challenge of the ' 70 ' s offers. To say O Cod Almighty! To come back! To complete the curve to come back Singing with procedure back through the last dark Of the moon, past the dim ritual Random stones of oblivion, and through the blinding edge Of moonlight into the sun And behold The blue planet steeped in its dream Of reality, its calculated vision shaking with The only love. by James Dickey 70 ' S CHALLENGE The Challenge of the 70 ' s must be met by the youth of today. This means the student of today ' s high school must prepare hi mself now to meet the chal- lenge. The Aquinas student works to meet the challenges by preparing himself in the four facets of his life: Academic, Spiritual, Social and Athletic. He must realize he should be strong in each one of these facets. To be weak in one means the student will have that much less ability to cope with the challenges he will meet in the next ten years. So with these thoughts in mind the Aquinas student now must dedicate his time to the development of himself to be able to meet the 70 ' s Challenge. Contents Theme Activities Sports Faculty Curriculum Underclassmen Seniors Conclusion Activities Because die student is a person, his life is a variety of impressions. A great part of his time is spent in school and studying, but the other activities may equally impress him with their challenges. There are so many challenges to change him, and the student gets a little out of each activity. It is all evolving in each event, each gathering of a few friends; a mixture of books and lectures swirled into a realization of the everyday challenge. The student projects as a leader and a follower, a competitor and a friend; always the same, yet always a challenge, giving to himself and saying something to everyone around him.

For the first time Aquinas had a well- organized home- coming which included a bonfire, half-time activities complete with floats, and the coronation of the home coming queen. The Homecoming Court included Queen Penny Warndorf, Senior Princesses Donna Carman and Judy Fiscalini, Junior Princess Debbie Huntsmen, Sophomore Princess Killoren Riddell, and Freshmen Princess Kim Bauer. The delightful Homecoming Dance was the final touch which made this homecoming the most memorable, due to the efforts of Father Patrick O ' Keeffe.

Basketball Homecoming A success this year, as it is every year, was the 1970 Basketball Homecoming. This year Notre Dame was the Homecoming visitor and Aquinas celebrated the dance in a jovial mood as Notre Dame returned home defeated. The dance was as delightful as ever with the superb performance of the " California Exchange. " This band seemed to set a mood of happiness and merriment which added immensely to the enjoyment of all who attend- ed. The Basketball Homecoming Queen was Donna Carman, Senior Princesses were Kathy Foley, Marlene Costa, and Janet Strom; also there were Junior Princess Donna Underwood, Sophomore Princess Donna Bush, and Freshman Princess Kathy Berry.

Led by hard working ASB President Ron Cisneros, The Executive Board intelligently handled all student matters. The methods employed by the Student Government showed initiative: the Student Forum heard opinions given on both sides of controversial topics; the Student Control Officers determined violations of school regulations; the Student Court meted out justice toward offenders. The members of the student ; vernment have shown their willing- ness to accept any challenge. Student Council: Dave Miller, Jaime Rosso, Dominic Mercadante, Ron Cisneros, Dave Coy.

Each individual possesses personal interests. This requires the establish- ment of separate organizations with desired purposes of advancing the respective interests of their members. Conversely, each club accomplis hes nothing and is worthless unless the projects it proposes are carried to success. Good clubs are composed of - Aquinas men who face " The 70 ' s Challenge. " 14 15 5 Pep Society Monogram Club Two of the more outstanding clubs at Aquinas are the Monogram Club and the Pep Society ol Aquinas. The P S.A. is new to the campus this this year. Much of its success was made possible by Fr. O ' Keeffe, the moderator. Better relations between Aquinas and St. Bernardino ' s have come about through Lire various activities coordinated by the P. S.A. The Monogram Club consists of all the varsity athletes. Among the various activities of the club was the " free throw contest " . This club truly represents the sportsmanship and athletic accomplishments of Aquinas. Mr. Dennis Wilson, ath- letic director, is the newly- appointed moderator. Aquinas Representatives: M.

With their fine display of talent, which expressed hard and dedi- cated work, the Aquinas enthus- iasm in sports has been improved reassuringly. Under the leadership of Drill Team Captain Maria Ferry, the Drill Team has helped us out with their half-time shows. Captain Patti Cribbs with " V " Cheerleaders and Mascots have organized one of the best rooting sections in the League. Killorin Riddell and the " B " Cheerleaders have done a tremen- dous job.

Falcon Staff and Pre-Seminary Informing and bettering the stu- dents are two aspects of the Chal- lenge of the 70 ' s which were eagerly met this year by the school newspaper, THE FALCON, and the Pre-Seminary Program. Hoping to live up to last year ' s standards, which won for Aquinas the All Catholic Award for School News- papers, the staff, headed by Moder- ator Mr. Russell, and Editor, Tim Gallavan, searched for and wrote every possible news, sports, and feature story, making each issue of the paper both informing and enter- taining. A new organization, the Pre-Sem- inary Program was introduced to Aquinas this year for all boys who have thought at some time or are thinking of entering the priesthood in later life. It provides a perfect oppor- tunity for individual betterment as well as opportunity for group activi- ties. The Pre-Seminary Program or- ganized many activities including various retreats, one of which was held overnight, and a Christmas party for the underprivileged children of the community. This organization enjoyed much success this year and looks as if it is here to stay. In meeting the Challenge of the 70 ' s, both of these organizations have done their part.

As the main service association, the Key Club busies itself by performing tasks around school - tasks that range from putting desks together to holding dances. I he National Honor Society ' s main func- tion is the maintaining of the high scholastic level of the members and setting an example for the school to follow. V- Aquinas ' religion-oriented club, the Holy Name Society ' s purpose is to help the young men of Aquinas to better themselves spiritually. The Aquinas campus has improved much through the efforts these clubs put forth. They produce many students each year who possess the Ability, Brains, and the Soul to carry the Challenge in our world today. National Honor Society officers: Tim Gallavan, Steve Szymczak, Fr.

Teamwork and individual initiative have been illustrated through the various athletics. Spirit has also been the keyword at all Aquinas events. From team spirit to rooter spirit, Aquinas students show the strong driving force which moti- vates the athletes. The 70 ' s challenge will always be enhanced and embodied by the Aquinas men. THE 70 ' S CHALLENGE n 26 V C.I.F. Playoffs After compiling a successful record in regular League play by tying for first place with Notre Dame High School, the Aquinas Falcons moved on to the C.I.F. playoffs. The first challenge was Desert High ' s Scorpions who were defeated during overtime play in an exciting game. In the following game against Yucca Valley, the Falcons were again victorious. They scored their season ' s lughest score of 100 points while Yucca Valley pegged 80 points. 1 os Angeles ' 1 utheran High School Lions were the next team to fall prey to the Falcons. The Lions were never Mire of victory on the Inglewood High School court. The Falcon ' s momentum, which had aroused great school spirit, was stopped. The Trona High School Tornadoes engulfed the Falcons with super- ior playing. The Aquinas Falcons ' basketball team of 1970 will be always a challenge in sportsmanship and spirit for an) future team to beat. C. I. F.

" ' Jul season this year. Mr. Dennis Wilson, assistant coach for four years, became head coach and made noble attemps. Having lost all their pre- season games, the team tried possibly to build a reputation in league games, but the first one against Notre Dame ended in defeat. The Falcons came back with two towering victories over Chino and Big Bear. Webb broke die winning streak. Visions of ending the season with a victory were vanquished by C. S. D. R. in a vin close game. The Falcons still have hopes for a successful season in the near future. Coach Wilson and QB Ruiz plan strategy. Fronl row: I. Eichenberg, G. Cavali, D. Smith, D.

Under the able coaching of Mr. Ernie Ciabattini, the Falcons lived up to last year ' s reputation. After a slow start in the pre-season games, the Falcons swept through the league, losing only once to Notre Dame. Shaking off that defeat, the Falcons revived their spirits and moved on to the C. I.

FALCONS Wrestling Undergoing tremendous pressures all along the way the Aquinas wrestling team grappled and pinned its way to a sense of internal if not external accomplishment and satisfaction and to a state of intense unity. Tediously practicing daily the team readied themselves for competition at Valley College or away. Although outnumbered at every match this did not bother the Falcon wrestlers who di- rected a powerful onslaught and managed to take their toll of opponents. Quality not quantity can indeed be used to describe this team of wrestlers who highly exemplified the spirit and strength of Aquinas High. Pat Wolfe readies liis man.

Individualism played a tremendous part. It was up to each man to put forth Ms talents all the time. The Racketeers of Aquinas used their own rackets and their own stamina as they played their games. Their strong individual drives evolved to make the tennis team proud and eager to meet any challenge. This is one team that improves with every match they play, using experience to develop new capabilities. J Ron Cisneros warms up lor a game. Team: L.Torres, J. Vincent, f. Gallavan, M. Hodge, R.

This year ' s Golf and Track teams stressed individual develop- ment because in order tc have a good, effec- tive team in sports like golf and track, every individual must put forth all of his ability and talent. The Golf team met the season ' s competi- tion enthusiastically, but all in all, had an average season. Led by such talent as Vierra and Hendricksen, the team showed the true Falcon spirit all the way, giving nothing but their best. Track was never as strong as some of the other competitive sports, but the team showed that it possessed very much individual talent, so necessary for a successful team. Finishing with a good season, the Track team was proud of their accomplishment. In meeting the Challenge of the 70 ' s, both of these spring sports did their utmost. i Henry Vierra plays one down the fairway. R. Hendricksen tees off.

Shepard puts the shot. T. Turcotte jumps the hurdles. M. Teeter wins his race. Baseball This year ' s Varsity Baseball team was one of great potential. With many returning lettermen and several new players of superior skill and ability, the team was bound to do well. High School baseball is not a fabulous spectator sport and rarely draws many fans. This means of course that the team must it- self carry the spirit. It means that each in- dividual player must have pride and spirit for his team and himself. This year ' s team has had that pride and spirit. The proof of that pride and spirit is in the accomplishments that they the players have succ eeded in for their school and fellow students. 1 " 1 utt WW 1 . 1 i WM 1 1 ' Ji Coach Servin warms up his players before the upcoming game. k 3 Varsity Team: (L to R) front row- P.

It was a trying year for the young coach, but a fine job was turned in. Besides leading the J.V. team to a winning season, Coach Hickey de- veloped some fine new prospects for next year ' s Varsity team. Besides such qualities as awesome hitting and pitching, a good baseball team needs tough defensive fielding in both the infield and outfield. The Junior Varsity Falcons show- ed that they had this quality by allowing their opponents only a few points a game. Looking back on the long, tough season, the Junior Varsity team did well in meeting the Challenge of the 70 ' s. , : . ■ ■ Richard Campbell snatches the pitch. Larry Keyes winding up to burn one in.

Today with the turmoil and challenges of the present system, faculty tech- niques need to be re-evaluated. Education can be colored with a sincere determination to aid each student and a concern with the respon- sibility of personal guidance; or can lapse into impersonal indoctrination of the masses. So truly the faculty more than anyone else must shape the young men of today to meet the 70 ' s Challenge.

The curriculum of Aquinas High School is designed to give the student enough background to be successful in anything he endeavors. Excellent teachers and an excellent curriculum produce the Aquinas man. 55 Freshmen Confrontation The Freshmen entering high school finds him- self confronted with an entirely different type of educational environment. His classes are already planned for him. . . for he is new to this business of attending a school of higher learning. However he must choose between the offered courses of either French I or Spanish I. In his classes, he finds both the subjects and the teachers interesting, and often amusing. The Freshmen finds his first year as an Aquinas man a worth while and valuable experience. Earth Science Algebra I Political S. u 11. e 66 Religion I I nclish i French I 67 Sophomore Challenge The class of ' 72 seemed to be a testtube for new analytical courses that were introduced at Aquinas this year along with the standard subjects. Social psychology seen from a religious point of view had made the sophomores look at themselves more objec- tively. The two teachers, or head psychologists of the course, were Fr. Robert Donat and Fr. Patrick O ' Keeffe. SHAPING OF A WESTERN SOCIETY and TRADITION AND CHANGE IN FOUR SOCIETIES were the two history courses conquered by the class with their ever-increasing knowledge. The foreign language department guided by Mrs. Schneider and Mr. De La Cruz gave them a more advanced vocabu- lary in French and Spanish. They were also given the opportunity to accustom themselves to the literature and cultural traits of France and Spain. Geometry and Algebra composed the mathematics curriculum pre- sented to the sophs this year in which they were at first puzzled but convincingly they applied themselves to brilliant maneuvering. The sophomores received their second year of English grammar and literature from Mr. Russell and Mr. Servin who directed them to a correct etiquette in reading and writing skills. HUM N PPTYSrOLOGY made up the sophomore science course. It influenced the students to become more and more interested in the field of medicine. The Challenge of the 70 ' s may be a tough one in academics, but the class of ' 72 is willing to accept that challenge. English II Spanish II 1 I ion II 68 Geometry French II Physiology 69 Junior A cceptance The Junior Curriculum is characterized by an increasing specialization in the fields of learning. The required subjects of United States History and American literature provide and instill a pride for national government and culture. The student can branch off into Algebra II or Economics. The world of test tubes and compounds is opened up to the Junior exploring chemistry. Religion, a seminar more than a class, where the individual can find God, others, and himself, is a required enlightenment. In the spectrum of foreign languages, the junior year is a beginning, a continuation, and an end. Spanish can be continued, French can be begun, or all foreign languages can be discontinued. Directed study, Communication Arts, and Auto Mechanics are offered as substitute classes. The Junior year phase of learning secures the student tightly to his goal in education and life-the greatest challenge of all. Chemist ry Algebra II United States History 70 Spanish III Religion III English III 71 Senior Curriculum In his fourth year, the Senior finds a great variety of general and specialized courses, geared for college, from which to choose. Among the several required courses are California history, English lit- erature, and specialized Religion course in marriage and sociology. Some students find the ever- changing Physics course a challenge and Trigonom- etry class a thrill dealing with the religion of numbers. The Seniors also have a choice of French 2, Spanish 2 or Spanish 4, to en- lighten his mind in the language of other people, or he can choose Physiology in order to study the body of man. After completion of his vital year, The Aquinas student is ready at last to make his own challenge in the world. Religion IV Math IV Directed Study French II 73 Underclassmen Faced by the superiority of the seniors and the stress and strains that pass them by in their daily lives, the underclassmen faced this year with the drive, the spirit, and the knowledge that was expected of them. The Freshmen, having to adapt themselves to school policies, showed the student body that this was going to be a class of pride. Once the frosh were on their way, class competition became a little more interesting. The Sophomores, already accustomed to the school environment, did a replay of last year ' s great per- formance. Sponsoring such activities as bake sales, magic shows, and dances, the sophs gave their hardest efforts in order to come out on top of everyone. In the estimation of many, their goal was achieved. The Juniors, just one year away from school supremacy ' , showed Aquinas that they were not going to wait. They gave the student body the idea that they were al- ready on their way by playing major roles in academics, sports, and extra- curricular activities. If one word was necessary to describe the underclassmen, it would be determination the kind that is needed for the 70 ' s Challenge. THE 70 ' s CHA LLENGE Freshmen The first year is the most challenging for anyone entering high school. The class of ' 73 responded to this challenge in the typical Aquinas manner. . with SPIRIT. Under the guidance of their class officers, the frosh forged on to become the most spirited, vibrant freshmen yet to come to Aquinas. At games they were there in ever-present hordes, cheering their team in victory comforting them in defe t. The Freshmen were involved not only in sports, but also in other forms of school devotion. They ex- pressed great determination, along with spirit in turn- ing our a winning float lor the Homecoming. Their activities in various school club and functions met with the same response and readiness to meet the challenge.

" Members of the class have repeatedly shown a " get in- volved " attitude which is an indication of the extreme pride they have within themselves, in their extracurricular work, and in their academics. Having taken an active part in all phases of school like, the sophomores have been es- pecially outstanding in academics and athletics. The class, demonstrating their understand- ing of community capitalized on various money- making activities, such as magic shows and bake sales. Their class is on its way to become a pace- setter, and challenge-maker.

A synonym for the Junior class is " unity. " Still going strong in their third year, the Juniors have stayed together and have formed a close-knit en- thusiastic division. Generating enormous spirit, they can be found participating in all activities at Aquinas. Unity and spirit make a great combination for a great class. Secretary: Ken Holmes President: David Coy Vice-president: Pierce Flynn The Junior class officers have done a great job all through this year. With their main objective, raising money for the prom, the Junior officers have worked dedicatedly and diligently. Under the leadership of David Coy and Pierce Flynn, the class has held dances and various other activities. These activities have been well-organized due to the work of Ken Holmes, Secre- tary; John Rafter, Treasurer; and Brian Healy, Sergeant- at-arms.

Resendez, Jaime Rosso THE 70s CHA LLENGE Darrell Goo As the Seniors started the year, they didn ' t feel much different then they did as juniors. They looked the same, felt the same, acted the same; but as the year progressed there came a realization that they were changing. They wor- ried less about the details that used to matter. And then gradually it dawned on them that the Senior year is unlike any of the three previous years. It is no longer a time of mediocrity where each day seemed the same. Studying became harder and sometimes seemed futile as new e- motions and ideas took root, pressing them to change. This is the Seniors ' challenge: the strug- gle to find themselves, to make their own race, to march to the beat of their own dram, The re- sults are not tallied on transcripts, but in their lives-to stay with them forever. 93 Big Four The tough job of motivating Aquinas ' most fickle class fell upon the very 7 capable shoulders of Jaime Rosso, Joe Hernandez, Dave Smith, and Steve Dinise. The Senior officers used their creative minds to orig- inate preventive ideas to forestall the much talked- about disease, " Senioritis. " Working with a class that at times was the best Aquinas has ever had, and then again at times refused to do anything, the class officers were able to obtain off- campus privileges, pull off a brilliant Junior- Senior Spirit Week, organize a class party, put on a dance, and generally promote a good feeling in the class. The class officers deserved credit for keeping the year for the Seniors from becoming a complete dis- aster. With the experience gained, these class officers will be ready to accept their challenge for future times. Senior President: P.

K Epilogue 1970 Thoughts of graduation, summer, and new freedom fill the mind of an Aquinas man. His tendency is to quit working and take it easy. With what can be and what has to he done, a man cannot totally forget his committment to his fellow man. He must strive to better himself and his surroundings. " This is the beginning of Tomorrow. " The challenges are clear; the need to meet them is clearer. It is up to the individual to prepare himself spiritually, mentally, and physically to meet " THE 70 ' s CHALLENGE. " THE 70 ' sCHALLENGE Associate Editors Photography Editor Underclass Editors D arte 11 Goo Steve Dinise Bob Patterson Norm Meinhardt Perry Amendt Mark Ehlhardt Pierce.Flynn Steve Meinhardt Ed Re a Bill Surratt Matt Szymczak Sports Editors The 1970 SUMMA is the beginning of something expressively new. SUMMA ' 70 tries to capture the atmosphere of a student ' s challenge which he finds in the dawn of a new decade at Aquinas. The knowledge, interests, and the spirit of Aquinas men were to be engraved in the pages of the yearbook. There are those who are willing to put forth the ef- fort and accept the " 70 ' s challenge. " We wish to offer our sincere thanks to the entire staff that gave us so much even at the expense of . nervous breakdowns, ulcers, and breakfasts at Richie ' s. The staff had many contributing thoughts and ideas that helped with the redevelopment of the yearbook. Though the ideas of the staff were independent views, the staff managed to pull to- gether and work out the indefinite number of prob- lems which they seemed to face. They deserve credit for staying with it for all the long months of hard work that they had to undergo. Many thanks are due to Mr. James Carlson of American Year- book Company, who gave us his patience and understanding. As editor, I would like to thank specific people who sacrificed so much of their time, effort and knowledge: Steve Dinise and Bob Patterson, who helped with the spirit as well as giving their all; Norm Meinhardt, our photographer, without whose work there would be no yearbook. Special thanks must go to our moderator, Fr. Robert Donat, who was the resultant force behind me and the staff. Never could you find a more dedicated and kinder Don Mercadante JohnLentine Ted Purpero Bryan Warren It is time to say adieu to the many unsharpened pencils, our SUMMA room, and the wastebaskets filled with the mountains of debris. We leave these for the staff of SUMMA ' 71 . We now present SUMMA ' 70 and its challenge to the students of Aquinas. Steve Kelley ffUOAAMtt M.. Moo Advisor Fr. Robert Donat ' S ■
