As he becomes aware of these happenings and organiza- tions, he finds that boolcs aren ' t the only thing to school. As the elements which compose these clubs and ac- tivities keep changing, so will the participant as he finds that his inter- est as well can easily be adjusted to them. The Times They Are A Changin Student Government Having to live up to the standards set by thie past student governments, this year ' s council exceeded many of those standards and set forth to estab- lish new patterns for the student body of Aquinas. Their concern for the stu- dents was exemplified in the adoption of a new constitution. Led by ASB presi- dent Maurice Pirio, this year ' s govern- ment was handled beautifully. For the third straight year at Aquinas, the Student Court has handled all problems among the students and this year ' s court is to be congratulated for its maintenance of order among the students. ,4i:iA.

U Football Homecoming The theme " Up. Up, and Away " pro- vided an exciting atmosphere for this year ' s football homecoming and dance. A splendid halftime was witnessed by the spectators at the game who saw the St. B ' s drill team put on a great perform.ance. Also, hundreds of helium -filled balloons were set adrift int o the night sky at the end of the halftime. The homecoming dance was highly suc- cessful as Dee Dee Nickel was chosen to reign as this year ' s queen. The gym. dec- orated with colorful balloons, produced a romantic mood which lifted the hearts of those who attended. Freshmen princess Cathy Holmes Queen Dee Dee Nickell crowned by ASB president Maurice Pirio. Junior princess Dianna Chiles Sophomore princess Barbara Brezinski Up, Up, And Awav. Senior princesses Jeannie Nelson and Debbie Huntsman. Basketball Homecoming This year ' s Basketball Homecoming dance proved to be successful as the homecoming game. After the astonishing victory by the Falcons over San Dimas. the thrill of victory seemed to carry on to the dance. Tuned to the theme of " Festival of Flowers, " the home- coming gala proved to be one of the most ex- citing that has ever been held. Susan Longinotti was selected as this year ' s queen. Escorted by basketball captain Lee Gardner. Susan reigned over her court com- posed of Freshmen princess Kathleen Riddell, Sophomore princess Delores Niccolino, Junior princes Cathy Thornes, and Senior princesses Geraldine Mineo, Debbie Niccolino, and Rosie Williams.

The purpose of the club is to develop Aquinas men spiritually and mentally. They go about doing this by observing the practices of the Confraternity of the most Holy Name. By receiving the Holy Sacraments, at school and at ch urch, they set a religious example which all should follow.

William Hold Mr. Donald Pound Changes in education have become one of the most important issues in society today. In order to maintain quality education in these changing times, good teachers are necessary. At Aquinas talented teachers have kept up with educational changes in order to guide the students and to provide good edu- cation. Mr. Robert Larsen Mr. Andrew Smith y ?

Quinn, Auxiliary Bishop of San Diego 24 Most Reverend Leo T. Maher, Bishop of San Diego DEDICA TION Father Robert J . Nagler has the longest record as prin- cipal at Aquinas High School. This is, in itself, sufficient to warrent a yearbook dedication. During these six years Aquinas has undergone a childhood and an adolescence with full matu- rity ahead. Father Nagler ' s varied talents have led him from the classrooms and into the office of the principal. He has worked hard for a dream: a co-ed high school on the Aquinas campus. Next year that dream becomes a reality. " The Times They are a Changing " . Cardinal Newman ' s phrase, " To grow is to change, and to have changed often is to have grown much. " is apropos for Aquinas with Father Nagler as principal. The staff of SUMMA ' 71 dedicates this book to a priest, a friend, and a real human person who has helped us to grow and to be perfect.

JohnPomis, French Religion, Social Science One aspect of Aquinas that sets it apart from other schools is its teaching of moral principles and doctrines in religion classes. These classes are taught in order to help each student find a deeper meaning in his religion and to acquaint him with many types of worship used in the world today and the world of yes- terday. At Aquinas, religion does play an important part in one ' s education. Another very important aspect of the scope of education offered at Aquinas is the field of Social Sci- ence, a subject which is becoming very significant in today ' s ever -changing world. Aquinas presently uses one of the most modern series of Social Science text- books, beginning with basic political and economical concepts in the freshman year, continuing witha study of various world cultures and American History in the sophomore and junior years, and culminating in the senior year with a study of modern sociological prob- lems.

In these fields, Aquinas has been lucky to have the help it has had. Day after day the office is run with efficiency and or- ganization which are vital factors in the world today. Outward appearances are very im- portant also in upholding an image for a school. This year, Aquinas has been fortunate to have such able men maintain the look of the campus. These are but two of the many aspects which keep a school running smoothly. At Aquinas, they are really doing their part. Mrs. Marge Chandler. Principal ' s secretary.

The Falcon Mr. Frank Lee Goldsmith 35 Curriculum The Aquinas man is very fortunate to be given the wonderful opportunity to take the straight academic courses. These will defin- ately prepare and enable him to excell in any walk of life. At Aquinas, the student develops both mind and character. He becomes an individual and the type of person who sets the example. Through the Falcon motto " Truth and Light, " the Aquinas curriculum and admin- istration builds and shapes the individual who is proud to call himself an Aquinas man. This institution of knowledge becomes more prom- inent as the years pass and changes are always being made. k 36 37 Wff?

These courses helped the freshmen to understand the ideology of Communism and the American way of life. In Religion Fr. Hart said " My class was one big rap session. " The frosh learned how to make Religion a part of their life in the modern world. Spanish I and French I gave the freshmen an idea of other people and their way of life in their foreign countries. In his classes he found both the teachers and the subjects interesting and often amusing. The class of ' 74 found their first year as an Aquinas man a worthwhile and valuable experience. French I : At 4iiln9ti Frosh waiting for next assignment English I 38 Political Science Algebra I Spanish I 39 Sophomore The class of ' 73 received more advanced study in Social Psychology v here they found out how people tick. Shaping of Western Society and Tradition and Change in Four Societies helped them understand the international scene and why countries did certain things in history. Mrs. Schneider and Mr. de la Cruz gave them a more advanced vocabulary in French and Spanish. They were also given the literature and cultural traits of France and Spain. Human Physiology made up the Sophomore science course. It persuaded the student to become more interested in medicine. Many changes will be made in the 70 ' s in academics, but the class of ' 73 is going to accept them. mmM Human Physiology ■■ ' Ip i f Shaping Of A Western Society.

The student becomes envolved in several new fields all of which increase his intelligence and play a ben- eficial part in developing him into a well rounded man and citizen. United States History is a required course and here the student learns about the development and culture of his government and nation. Also, with the new and unique method of teaching the course of religion and literature, the student has the advantage of having not one but three teachers envolved in his learning process for each course. This enriches his insight toward theology and belief as well as literary figures and creative writing. In the junior year, the fascinating course of Oiemistry becomes a newity and concepts of energy and matter evolve. Algebra II is begun and strengthens the students mind Eind thinking power. In his third year the junior has a choice of either continuing in the previous language studied for a third year or beginning another. The junior cur- riculum opportunes the student to take supplementary courses such as biology, auto-dynamics, or speech. ReliRion Algebra II U.S. History JJ ?r ' H:fj; fJ!5 sj i;;: Spanish III Chemistry French III •43 Seniors A senior ' s final courses contain gen- eral as well as specific material. The pur- pose of the courses is proximate prep- aration for his college career. Senior re- ligion concentrates on the relationship of God and man as found in the study of sociology. Civics informs the student about his society and its changing ways. Physics and Trigonometry challenge him in the knowledge of higher mathematical equations and formulas. Advanced study may also be taken in the fields of Spanish and French. Speech and the Applied Sciences give him a humanistic background. Through these courses, the senior sees the world as a macrososm, understands its nature, and wonders about the future. Business Math Speech Sociology Civics Trigonometry Auto Dynamics A5 Sports As the times keep changing, so do the requirements for a man ' s ability in sports. A good example of one who is keeping in step with these changes and requirements is the Aquinas athlete. Knowing that he is tops in his field, he must withstand the con- stant pressure that is forced upon him by the opposition. However, the pride that the Aquinas man carries on to the field of bat- tle outweighs the pressure, and stays with him either through victory or defeat. 46 47 Varsity Cheerleaders No athletic team can stay alive unless there is spirit among the fans as well as the teams. This year ' s Varsity Cheer- leaders highly fulfilled the requirements of promoting spirit among the spectators. Led by Captain Mary Ann Nicholson, the cheer- leaders kept the morale. Included on this year ' s squad were Dianna Chiles, Debbie Huntsman, Donna Underwood, Jackie Nicholson, and Jeannie Nelson. " 5 " Cheerleaders This years " B " Cheerleaders should be praised for their up-keep of spirit at the " B " sports events. Facing the task of performing in front of small crowds, Captain Killorin Riddell and her squad kept the excitement high with their exuberant cheers. Also on this year ' s squad were Charlene Eileen Cannan, Laurette Rosemary Pirio, and Pam DiPasquale. Varsity Football 14 o5i » :. 50 t Falcons on the run against N M.

The J. V. Football team had a rather disappointing start this year by winning only one of their pre -season games. The J.V. ' s had to overcome the handicap of not having any of last years team mem- bers return to this year ' s squad. The J, V. ' s started league play on a high note by defeating Sherman, Then, after losing two close games by less than a touchdown, the J. V. ' s came back successfully to end their season by de- feating Notre Dame. y. it ,S 56 Sanchez on the sweep against Chino Braden leads the way for Reynolds. Front row; R. Backer, J. Stewart, G.

Future Varsity Stars Reynolds outruns Chino defender Varsity Basketball The Varsity Basketball team this year upheld the high standards set by previous Aquinas teams. By their strenuous practices and re- markable skill, they led us to another league championship. In reaching C.I.F. again, the team continued for another year our basketball tradi- tion. With the continuous cheering from the faithful Aquinas students, the team ' s spirit reigned on high, giving each member, whether onthe bench or on the court, a feeling of satisfaction in representing their school and fellow students. This satisfaction is shared by each and every Aquinas team. Standing, from left to right: Larrj ' Keyes, Lenny Walsh. Tony Crawford. Tom Turcotte, Jim Mc- Caughey.

Despite the lack of height, the " B ' s " managed to finish in a tie for second place. The " B ' s " were coached by Chuck Hickey, who did a good job training the four frosh for next year. Hickey, a first year man, couldn ' t teach the sophs much as they carried the team through the season. The " B ' s " relied heavily on the fast break and their superior outside shooting to counteract the height advantage every team had on them. The team placed three members on the all -league team this year. They were led by Ed Rojas, who was the leading scorer and rebounder, followed by Chuck Dinise and Bob Romeo. The " B ' s " showed their skill in shooting and a harassing press by taking a fantastic victory over C.S.D.R. Big Bear was the only team to beat the Falcons twice, and Webb managed to just barely slip by the Falcons to a victory in their own gym. All in all the " B ' s " had a fine season and should be proud of what they accomplished. Ed Rojas goes up for two points. Coach Hickey gives a pep talk. 64 .

The team ' s greatest challenge was against Notre Dame. The frosh exhibited the " Falcon Spirit " and came through with a victory. The team was coached by an active Aquinas gradu- ate, Mr. Don Vierra. The members of the team were led to victories by the inspiration of players like " little Fred " Lopez, who in a single freshman game scored eighteen points. The Frosh showed some promising members for the teams in years ahead. The members of this years Freshman Team are; Billy Williams, Fred Lopez, Mike Pena, Gary Deleon, Tom Walker, Mike Steward, Billy Crawford, Keith Shields, Pat Gerke, Larry Romeo, Terry Rehaume, and Roger Basford.

For the first time in several years the team had one or more members for each weight class. They upheld the honor of Aquinas at every match individually, and as a team. With every match our wrestlers proved that Aquinas was a school to be proud of. Our team, through their great efforts, received third place medals. Often the practices made one think that there was no end to the coaches determi- nation. But the hard practices were not the only factor in our triumphs, the desire of each member to win was a most important factor, for with out this, no game or match, can be won.

' 1 ! 79 UNDER CLA SSMEN As always, it seems as though it has been the Seniors who have received all the recogni- tion and glamour. But let us now stand back and take a complete look at our underclass- men. Ranging from Freshmen to Juniors, all classes have shown tremendous incentive, drive, and ambition. Bake sales, dances, and various drives, only to name a few, have been the appetite behind the underclassmen. This year, the Freshmen class has mas- tered the change to high school remarkably well. Its constituents have won the respect of higher classes and proved their worthiness to be called Aquinas men. Their officers have become greatly involved in all fields and have helped to guide the Freshmen class. The Sophomore class has definitely shown its presence and attitude by constantly reaching for higher goals and self -betterment. Its mem- bers have given much to the student body and have helped to build spirit wherever it has been needed. Finally come the Juniors. Their scope in- volves sports, academics, and social achiev- ments. They have greatly helped to motivate all classes to the highest degree of possible in- volvement and have shown their colors through- out their history at Aquinas. 80 The Times They Are A Changin UMbuuM Freshmen When the freshmen came to Aquinas in the fall of 1970, they were unaware of the changes they would have to make from the learning processes of grammar school. The high school situation is completely dif- ferent, but the freshmen showed that they were able to adapt. Their first task as a class, to elect officers, was accomplished very smothly. This made the accomplishing of other tasks, such as the football home- coming bonfire, dances, a picnic, and a beach trip, much easier. The freshmen year is perhaps the hardest year to get through. However, the freshmen class of this year showed that they were quite capable of completing the task.

Jtm wm President Bill Flynn Just as it takes all kinds of people to make a world, so also does it take different types of stu- dents to make a school. But a single individual can have little influence on his surroundings. It takes many individuals, working together as a unit, to make an impression on their surroundings. This unity, singleness of purpose, was the dis- tinguishing trademark of the Sophomores this year. The Class of ' 73 made its presence felt on all levels of school life. At our athletic matches, the class participated actively not only on the field, but in the stands as well. Politics, too, came into the scope of Sophomore activities. Under the leadership of its officers, President Bill Flynn, Vice-President Chuck Dinise, Secretary John Campbell and Treasurer Stephen McCaughey, the class went on to work to ever better its school and itself. Spirit, free and unchecked, this was the secret of the Sophomore Class of 1971. Times are changing, and the Sophomores are helping them to change for the better.

The branches of the Junior class have spread throughout all types of classroom and extra-curricular ac- tivities. Their dynamic leadership, un- divided unity, an d zealous loyalty have given them the respect of both the faculty and the alumni. Their self- pride is exemplified in their maturity, their over abundance of spirit, and their practice of Christian morality. The juniors have also expressed their own individualism and independence, which is another example of adulthood. It is these qualities which have earned the juniors the noble title of " men of Aquinas. " Representatives: Kim DiPasquale I Pres Michael Rosso Harold Whiteside Robert Gonzales 100 7 r Vice-Pres.

Larry Brown, Lee Gardner, John Rafter, and Dennis Goo stood for a new philosophy of life at Aquinas High School. They, along with the senior class, believe in freedom of the mind and body, individ- ualism. These four men had shown us the path of pride and happiness for those who wish to take part in it. These four men as well as the senior class, should be saluted for their courage as pioneers in a new way of life. They were unique and free, and these qualities made them a united legend. Their unity came from high ideals and reachable goals. 109 Gilbert Amador Guadalupe Perry Amendt Holy Rosary WiUiam Angelo Senior Class Richard Armijo St. Catherine Richard Campbell Holy Ros8u-y Demiis Cisneros St. Bernardine William Cole Assumption David Coy St. Anne John Delabunt St. Anne 110 Peter Desrochers Holy Rosary Barry Fallon St. Anne Pierce Flynn Holy Rosary Sees New Era.
