Tell me what keepest thou so long from play? "Look," He said, then softly, "a gift for Mother!" Only a trophy rude saw the other, But when upon our Lady's lap it lay,- Mother and Son circled with smiles so gay, Love, all crudity seemed to cover. So, we have proudly brought a task to end, Conscious only of a father's pleasure, And knowing that his watchfulness ne'er tires, Being that Christflike Prince who lowly bends, To approve a deed and then to treasure, We proudly dedicate to him our "Spires."

REVEREND MATTHEW DELANET. jfntetnurh Softly the melody has lingered, sweet, ' throbbing, vibrant in its initial cadences, lresonant in the beauty of its pulses, and now, as the harmony so gently draws to a climax, let us guide you aloft with us, attended by its all pervading sweetness, in our little planes of cherished reminiscences, Up, up into new atmospheres we have travelled, surrnounting the complexities of storms, and of ob- structions, gaining new hopes with each altitude, yet retaining the roseate ideals of the one preceding, treasure ing covetly each finer, nobler aspiration. Now another height has been attained, back of us stretches a path replete with hallowed remembrances. The mystic shades ofthe future lift slowly, and with one passport, a diploma, we are awarded full license to explore the great unknown. Ernbarlg, then, on our little ship of fantasy. Retrace our little hills, review our hopes and conquests, the principles and ambitions that have been fostered in the regions we have just traversed. Touch gently the veil of the Past. and, when gazing through its translucent mist, you mark the gladness therein, raise reverently its meshes, and peruse with us the intimate secrets it will disclose. Q Fourteen GRACE BACIGALUPO TRANSFIGURATION , SECRETARY- 28 "Who mix'd reason with pleasure, and wisdom with mirth. If she had any faults, she has left us in doubt." SWEETNESS and nonchalance can be freely attributed to this demure Miss. Never will we forget her vivacious spontaneity which brightened our scholastic years. Then too, Grace possesses that conspicuous characteristic of being able to make friends and keep them because she is gracious and true. With sad hearts we bid Adieu to this petite demoiselle whose blithe personality was a benediction to the class of '31, a joy in the midst of our sometimes aggravating studies, and EVELYN MARY BARDES INCARNATION PRESIDENT'l28 "Flowers are lovelyg love is flowerflike Friendship is a sheltering tree." EVELYN'S presence in our midst has lent a happiness and sweetness to our stay at Cathedral. We all regard her with a particular affection. Her everfready smile and cheerful voice reveal a personality so sweet, gentle and sympathetic that it will cause her circle of friends to be enlarged greatly when she leaves us. Cur recollections will always center about your name, Evelyn, and our hearty wishes for your success will always follow you. a consolation in all our pursuits. MARY RITA BARRETT ST. ALPHONSUS oncnssrimv-'27, '28, '31 arzcsvriow corvimirruuf 29, 30 "Her smile, her poise, her charm All speak of womanly completeness." WHAT more need we say to describe our classmate, Mary! Her sparkling person' ality, so friendly, so jolly and altogether so charming has endeared her to us. There is nothing Mary likes so much as gaietyg she is at her best when she is contributing to the fun. However, there is a serious side to Mary's nature, a counterbalance so essential to "completeness" As to Mary's future, we know we do not err in predicting success in the profession of law, to which she aspires. GERTRUDE BERUARD sr. GREGORY THB GREAT PRESIDENT-'28 E 'iAnd as the bright sim glorifes the sky, So is her face illumiifd with her eyes." WITH a combination of shining blue eyes, a glorious color, an enchanting smile and a perfect disposition, Gertrude is irresistible. Of her many accomplishments, the one most worthy of commendation is the one that is not wellfknown-'so carefully has our classmate guarded the secret of her ability to sketch. Not long will this talent lie hidden, "Trudy," for your persevering nature and artistic gift will soonn demand for you their proper ref cognition. Fifteen Sixteen LIA YOLANDA BERTONI ST. THOMAS, THE APOSTLE SECRETARY4l3O ART CLUB-Q31 GLEE CLUB-'28, '29, '30, '31 ATHLETIC CLUB-'31 "The success of the good entices many more." STUDENT, artist, friend,-who will say under which classification Lia should be listed? She is all of them to the "Nth degree." As a student, she looks up to few, as an artist, to none, as an athlete,-well she is one. In class and out of it, she proves her worth. Continue to add to your good qualities, Lia, and thus make more secure your prominence in a larger World than that of your girlhood. MARIGN ELIZABETH BICKNER 1 HOLY SPIRIT DRAMATIC CLUB-'29, '30, '31 RECEPTION COMMITTEET 30, 31 "Deal gently with her, world, I pray, 'Ye caves, like softened shadows, come." HER most expressive countenance, the dignity of her manner and bearing, give a charm to an appearance that exactly tallies with her character. The warmth of her voice has often softened the tribulations of school life. But the vigor of her thoughts, tempered by the gentleness of her nature, give her a frank simplicity that inspires all who know her with confidence in her as a true and sincere friend. 1 s MARGARET FRANCES BRADY ASCENSION RECEPTION COMMITTE-Q30 ATHLETIC CLUB-130, '31 one CLUB-'30 "The social smile, the sympathetic tear." THE radiant charm of our "Mardy's" efferf vescent wit has often proved a haven from the shocks of our scholastic life. While among us, she has not permitted her lively interest in outside activities to interfere with her high academic standing. Genial, sincere and optimistic, "Mardy" has deservedly asf cended the legendary throne of Class Humorist and Philosopher. For her, our mischievous "Miss Skippyi' of '31,we predict success and happiness, whether the future shall reveal her bagging wild game in Africa or gracing a suburban cottage. vi ss I KJ to all. MARGARET MIRIAM BRENNAN ST. JOSEPH, TREMONT "Heart on her lips, and soul within her eyes Soft as her clime, and sunny as her skies." FOUR enjoyable years have fpassed, since we met "Peggy." From the rst, her cheery smile has brightened many cloudy days. Her interesting conversation, sympathetic nature, and unwavering amiability have endeared her Those who know "Peggy" well, will agree that if success depends upon disposition and inclination, her future is indeed secure. In that great indestructible chain of friend' ship, which binds us to our Alma Mater, Peggy has carved a link which will last until Eternity. Seventeen Eighteen MARY AGNES BRENNAN sr. JOHN THE 1zvANoEusr MARTINA MARY BRENNAN OUR LADY or LOURDES ATHLETIC CLUB-'29, '30 "She has a voice of gladness, and a smile And eloquence of beauty." MARTINA came to us in junior Year- full of fun, happy, and carefree. She could always be depended upon to banish the gloom that pervades the class immediately after examif nation. Her magnetic smile and musical talent complete her list of attributes. Success, Martina, and may these characf teristics, so attractive in you, now prove a stepping stone in your career. one CLUB-'29, '30, '31 Piuasimaur-'28, '29 vice PRESIDENT'l3O RECEPTION COMMITTEEA'29, '30, '31 "From the crown of her head to the sole of her foot she is all mirth." GUR class proclaims this Miss, the happiest of its members. A sunny smile for morning hours, a bright winning disposition throughout the day, and a merry "Au Revoir" at three o'clock-such have we discovered in her ap' pealing demeanor. Her exuberance does not hide an undercurrent of sweet sympathy, loyalty and comradeship. Her personality now, is but a promise of what it will be in future years. She will be great, for her virtue merits greatnessg she will be loved, for her manner merits love. VIRGINIA MARSHALL BRINK RESURRECTION GLEE CLUB-130, '31 ATHLETIC CLUB-'30, '31 CIIEER I.EADERf'3O, '31 "Laughing cheerfulness throws sunshine on all the paths of life." WINSOME, lighthearted "Ginny" has grinned over many a text book and Regents' Examination. Yet the stars point threateningly to the teaching profession for her. Picture "Professor Brink M.A.Ph.D.," as a recognized authority on "How to Quell Youthful Enthusiasm" or "Cheering for the White and the Gold." To us, "Ginny" will ever be that diminutive individual who is blest with a startling amount of generosity and rectitude, an eloquent believer in "Better late than never." if ELIZABETH URSULA BROWN ST. CATHERINE OF GENOA RECEPTION COMMITTEE-'30 ART CLUB-'31 ATHLETIC CLUB'l?7O, '31 "Fine an is that in which the hand, and the head, and the heart go together." BETTY'S ready wit, cheery smile and helping hand have won for her the hearts of her classmates and elevated her to the ranks of a favorite. Besides her social charms, she is a talented artist and an ardent devotee of sports. She is noted especially for her poise and cheerful attitude at the approach of examinations. Essays could be written concerning Betty's affable disposition and sterling character, for she possesses the qualities of a true friend-im tegrity, loyalty and magnanimity. I' Nineteen Twenty ESTHER MARIE BROWN OUR LADY OF MERCY VICE PRESIDENT-Q29 VARSITY'l31 CHEER LEADER-'30 GLEE CLUB-'29, '30 TREASURER-'31 ATHLETIC CLUB-'29, '30 "The smile that bubbles from the heart that loves its fellow men, Will drive away the clouds of gloom and coax the sun again." SINCERITY, loyalty, optimism and jollityi such qualities as these compose the sparkling personality which has always characterized this charming, carefree young lady. The sincere interest exhibited by Esther in extrafcurricula activities attests her intense esteem for "Archbishop Hughes Memorial." Esther's interests aspire to the field of pedaf gogy Wherein we firmly believe she will find ample scope for her talents. LORETTO' AGATHA BRUEN ' OUR SAVIOUR Guia CLUB--'30, '31 "The greeting smile was pledge and prelude of generous deeds and kindly words." LORETTO embodies the true spirit of Catholic girlhood. She is quiet, yet not taciturng conscientious, yet not scrupulous. Her natural craving for learning is augmented by a true love of study. All who come in contact with her are impressed by the sweetness of her disposition. No one can truly say that she ever has heard Loretto utter an unkind word about her asf sociates. May success attend you, dear classmate, in whatever path of life you choose, and may you preserve those characteristics which have so endeared you to your sister Cathedralites. FLORENCE VERONICA BUCKLEY sr. Pius ANNEX 1 "A true friend to everybody Always jolly and full of fun." TO know Florence is to know a cheerful friend who is always willing to help her classmates. Gifted with a sunny disposition and cheery smile she has been a joy to her companions. She is loyal to her friends, always helping them out when their days seem darkest. Many have sought her advice in time of trouble and many have been advised wisely. She is never too busy to help a friend and her kind loving ways have endeared her to all her classmates. She will always be remembered with praise as one who had a kind word for everybody. Thus with a feeling of sadness we see her depart from us and hope that she will be sucf cessful in her chosen life work. RITA MARIE CARLIN sr. FRANcis xAvn1R CLASS PRESIDENT-'27, '28 SECRETARY-'30 LITERARY CLUB- 30, 31 "Those about her From her shall 'read the perfect ways of honor." ALTHOUGH she is one of the youngest members of our class, Rita seems to have traversed mental roads which her elder sisters have never trod. Her proficiency in school work has merited the commendation not only of the student body but of the faculty as well. We are cognizant of Rita's many capabilities and are certain that her achievements will find ample scope in training the plastic minds of eager children in a thorough knowledge of spiritual and material values. Twentyfone Twentyflwo ANNA PATRICIA CARROLL sr. GREGORY GLEE CLUB-'31 "A basliful air becoming everything, A wellfbred silence always at command." HARD work and Anna are on very intimate terms. Happily, she has hastened along the road of knowledge throughout her four years here, an earnest student, progressing consistently towards her desired goal. Though industrious and conscientious, she has not, however, ignored merriment at the proper time. When one has penetrated her quiet dignity, she is repaid by the disclosure of an interesting friend. Her smile and willingness to help, endear her to her numerous friends and predict MARY MAGDALENE CASHIN sr. JOHN cniwsosrom ANNEX II PRESIDENT-'28 VICE PRESIDENT-'29 ATHLETIC CLUB-'30, '31 SECRBTARY-'30, '31 "Simplicity of character is no hindrance to subtlety of intellect." EACH class has its Mary, earnest, lovable, gifted and jolly. We have ever found our particular Mary an outstanding scholar, with a decided penchant for "Arma virumque canof' While a serious person at times, Mary is also a most amusing companion, her Irish wit finding a jest in the most commonplace utterance. In a world which appreciates integrity, ac' curacy, and clear thinking, more each day, Mary is assured of the success we know she deserves. for her a roseate future. ELEANOR A. CHIAPPINO T ST. PHILIP NERI DRAMATIC CLUB-'29, '30, '31 ART CLUB-,Sl RECEPTION COMMITTEE',30, '31 "A sweet lieartflifting cheerfulrtess Seemed ever on her steps to wait." LEAVING the memory as it were of an aroma of sweet perfume, Eleanor has passed through four years of scholastic training successfully. Her gifts displayed so frequently may lead her to an artistic career, perhaps even to the stage. We may be certain, however, that Eleanor will face her life work with a warm interest and dauntless courage. As she achieves her ambitions, may there come only those cares into her life as will cast a further glow on her character. l l 1 CATHERINE T. CHRENKO CATHEDRAL Guan CLUB-'29, '30, '31 ATHLETIC CLUB-'30, '31 SECRETARY-,29 RECEPTION COMMITTEEw-.31 "A smile that gloufd Celestial rosy red, love's proper hue." CATHERINE is a loyal friend and a comrade worthy of confidence. She has, fortunately, the rare gift of making others happy. Whatever pertains to our beloved school has its appeal for Catherine. Three years spent in the Glee Club, and one year of faithfulness in the Athletic Club, verify this wellfknown fact. To this charming graduate, we wish many victories and increasing joy in the performance of her duty. Twmtyfthree Twentyffour NAOMI GEGRGIA CLAPP SAINT COLUMBA SPIRES STAFE-'31 ' ARBUTUS STAEE-'31 LITERARY CLUB'-'30, '31 PRESIDENT, ART CLUB-'31 DRAMATIC CLUB-'31 ATHLETIC CLUE-'30, '31 PRESIDENT'-l29, '30, '31 RECEPTION COMMITTEE-'29, '30 "A soul as full of worth, as void of pride, Which nothing seeks to show, or needs to hide." NAOMI is one of our versatile schoolmates, ' who succeeds in accomplishing the almost impossible, and whose unseliishness enables her to finish whatever she begins, whatever she seeks, she always obtains. She is a sportswoman and executive both, she possesses the accuracy of the artist and the broadfmindedness of a democrat. The cares which her varied offices imposed upon her, never marred her patience. Well filled years therefore have procured for Naomi the acclamation of unstinted praise. MARY THERESA CLEARY sr. JOSEPH, I-IARLEM DRAMATIC CLUB-'30, '31 RECEPTION COMMITTEE- 30, 31 "And her face so fair Stirr'd with her dream, as rosefleaves with the air." NOT long ago we found a portrait of a typical Irish beauty, the eyes were flashing blueg within them there lay a mischievous twinkle in which we found a note of familiarity. The very gaiety of the picture made it resemble Mary. Yet, an insight into the joyousness and laugh' ter discloses something more, and infinitely liner. She is a good scholar, her girlish simplicity compels us to love her. Her optimistic cheer' fulness has been a prominent factor in the pref servation of her winning disposition. You must know her to understand. Success to you, Mary, on whatever roads you choose to travel. HELEN GERTRUDE CLEVELAND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL No. 115 RECEPTION COMMITTEE-,28, '29 "The pen is mightiefr than the sword." FRANK and loyal, but so reticent and un' assuming that one scarcely realizes she is there,-Helen has quietly won her way to a high place in our regard. Three years of acquainf tance have enabled us to discern her abilities. Dominant among these is her literary accom' plishments. Helen has chosen to become a teacher at the close of her high school career and knowing her as we do, we entertain no anxiety for her future pupils. She leaves Archbishop Hughes Memorial High School with the wellfwishes of all her classmates. May life smile on her and honest endeavor bring her professional preeminence. I sl. 1 - jf' .1 .ii 1 , I l RITA DOLGRES CLYMER ' SAINT GABRIEL GLEE CLUB-'28, '29. '30, '31 RECEPTION COMMITTEE-'30, '31 vIcE PRESIDENT-4129, '31 PRESIDENT-'30 PRESIDENT OF C-LEE ctun-'31 "God sent His singers upon earth With songs of sadness and of mirth." DO you know Rita? This is a rhetorical question, for everyone from the timid Freshman to the dignified Senior recognizes the girl whose indefatigable energy has made her so prominent. Rita is justly famous for many reasons. In fact, we wonder where we ought to begin to enumerate her virtues. Her ability to amuse. heads the list. She is, besides, a thorough student, a jovial spirited girl, and above all a leader. These are only a few of the attributes applicable to her and well, indeed, has she earned them. 'I i J Twenty-five Twentyfsit MARGARET A. COLGAN sr. AUGUSTINE ANNEX I C-LEE CLUB-'30, '31 "Feeling or thought that was not true, Ne'e'r 'made less beautiful the blue Uncloudecl heaven of her eyes." A golden goblet filled with clear, sparkling mirth, sweetened with kindness and good will, spiced with ambition and brimming over with sincerity-such is the character of Mar' garet. Perhaps you may object that this illustration may hardly distinguish a character portraitg but one can best realize and appreciate the true personality of this girl by imagining the most desirable qualities, so effectively combined and apportioned as to produce a whole that is def cidedly lovely and lovable. ANNE FRANCES COBY SAINT PETER AND PAUL ANNEX I 'iBe silent and safe-silence never betrays you." TO us, Anne is lovable because she possesses a refined, patricianflike character. Some are prone to call it shyness, yet her remarkable serenity of demeanor, an indelible trait, would be reponsible for this error. With her more inf timate companions, she ranks as a sweet girl, unpretentiously solicitous of others' welfare. In her studies, Anne has labored long and earnestly and her efforts have certainly borne fruit, as is evident in her triumph. To you, dear classmate, we wish a lifetime of many deeds, well done. May fortune favor you as you bask in her smile. EUGENIA VICTORIA' CORBERA OUR LADY OF LOURDES DRAMATIC ctus-'30 sncnnraav-'29 "Candor is the seal of a noble mind, the ornament and pride of man, the sweetest charm of woman and the rarest virtue of sociabilityf' THIS favorite is the fortunate possessor of a distinctive personality coupled with a charm not readily analyzed. In Eugenia we find a rare combination, the reserve of years plus the live' liest qualities of youth. Candid, clever and observant, Eugenia has often amazed us with her delightful, graphic and ever witty descriptions. Eugenia's love for literature and her deep inf sight presage success in ournalism, while her nonchalant acceptance ofj whatever the Fates present assures her of a smooth journey past Life's crossroads. ! .. .

During our high school years, we have been puzzled by the complexity of her nature-womanly, and yet interspersed with many boyish qualities. Her chief characteristic is manifested daily in her desire to be "different," a volition that has developed her argumentative powers. Obscurity veils her life work, yet we have a suspicion that she will either be a lawyer, or a journalist, -the criminal courts or press offices will welcome her individualistic ideas!

A pleasant humor makes her interesting, a peaceful rnien, inviting. In addition to the attributes of a delightful companion, Margaret possesses the conspicuous qualities of an able student. One discovers her ability and friendliness only by mere chance, for she is very retiring. The reason is that Margaret finds silence beautiful and, therefore, loves it, her eminent characteristic resides in a keen perception of beauty. ALICE MARIE GARVEY sT.

Her cheerfulness radiates and buoys up the spirits of all. She may well be termed the "Optimist" of the class, for she has brought sunshine where gloom often prevailed.

She is a sympathetic listener to your trials and a pleasant friend ap' preciating your good fortune. Perhaps she is best known for her wonderful selffcontrol and unselfish nature. Everybody loves her for her agreeable disposition. Surely all reco nize Mildred's ability as a bass violinist. For four years she has contributed her best efforts to the school orchestra.

MARCELLA is one of our most reserved classmates, yet her scholastic brilliancy and dependability are unquestionable. Unperturbed facility marks her industry in the field of "Publius Virgilius Marc," whose wanderings hold for her no terrors. Her unselfishness in placing such literary beauty at the disposal of less talented companions has aroused our sentiments of respect and gratitude.

Her ability to emerge victorious from her battle with unknown and to prove that "K-bh," has unquestionably placed her in the ranks of our most excellent mathematicians. We must not picture Philornena as devoting all her attention to a study of mathematics, for she has proven a most efficient scholar in every course she has undertaken. May Good Fortune attend you! "A fair girl of eighteen, Fresh glittering with graces Of mind and of mienf' WHEN we look back upon our highfschool career we will undoubtedly think of the lightfhearted girl who brightened our hours of study.

THOSE who are not acquainted with Eleanor, may be puzzled by the rather ambiguous quotation we have applied to her, but by it we refer to her vibrant personality, that is ever startling us with some new viewfpoint. Through' out her high school course, reading has been her favorite pastime, and her classmates also have shared in the benefits accruing from this.

Add to these qualities the fact that she is a staunch supporter of the wellfknown French motto- "Ce que vous faites, faites bien." Methinks, 't would have been a sad year for Aeneas had not Gwen been there to en' courage him on his oftfrepeated journeys to and from Italy.

THROUGHOUT the school it would be hard to find a girl who does not know and appreciate the sense of humor with which Kathleen is so richly endowed. No group of funfmakers is complete without her. Many times we have listened with eagerness to some of her compositions which had the power either to convulse us with their bantering or render us speechless with an appreciation of their worth.

She possesses a forceful dramatic power that was augmented in the ruthless conniving villain, Baradas, of "Richelieu," We need not wish her joy, for, as long as the world laughs, she will laugh with it, and laughter with happiness are for her nearly synonymous.

THOUGH Rita does at times withdraw from her bustling surroundings, and dream of other, fairer worlds, she often lets her visions escape to the winds and becomes as enthusiastic as the rest of us. She has a great love for literature and may be called the class authority in that field. Rita has proven herself an expert composer, and we hope that before long, we can place her books among our treasures and proudly boast that she was our classfmate at Cathedral High. ELEANOR H. MCDONALD CATHEDRAL "A friend may well be reckoned the master' piece of nature." SHY and reticent, yet what profound thoughts be in Eleanor's fertile mind! Throughout her four years among us, we have looked upon this fair girl as a source of perfect benevolence, a model of many virtues and a treasure of youth and charm. Her quiet humor has ever been appreciated but her versatile character is most clearly known to those who have the honor of her acquaintance. Truly, she is "a woman nobly planned, Born to comfort and command."

We are drawn to her not only because of her quiet charming manner but also because she possesses a strong, admirable character. Although we know Ellen as a girl of few words yet her brevity does not bespeak a lack of knowledge, for she is an untiring student.

WHEN recollections of these "dear old goldenfrule days" return to us in years to come, our thoughts will include this pleasing Miss, whose infectious laugh and optimistic nature has brightened our Cathedral "school days." She is a fluent conversationist and a devotee of dancing. Her school spirit has been evidenced in the many activities to which she devoted her time and talent. Her warmth of disposition, her original opinions and her characteristic frankness can only merit honor for her. Let the old Caesarian expression "Veni, vidi, vici" be your motto, Anne, and when you have conquered, may we be among the first to voice our congratulations. inf VIRGINIA possesses a somewhat duplex disposition, she is at once serene and drole. Her sparkling Wit has entertained us during many a dull moment, and her knack of deriving fun from the most serious incidents makes her a lively and desirable chum. She is quiet at times, and at others all gaiety. Her laugh is deep, and resonant with a genuine ring. We love Virginia, not for what she has accomplished, but for what she is, a universal "good sport," comrade, friend and loyal mate all in one, an enigmatic, yet none the less appealing young lady. One Hundred class' ELIZABETH PATRICIA WOLFE ST. CATHERINE or GENOA ARBUTUS sTAFr-'31 LITERARY CLUBfl30, '31 ATHLETIC CLUB-.31 "Reserve with frankness, art with truth allied, Courage with sweetness, modesty with pride." BETTY is one of our truly individual char- acters whose disposition is at once agreeable and determined, whose ambitions are lofty, and whose efforts to achieve those ambitions are worthy of favorable comment. Her schoolwork is excellent, her sportsmanship even more so. Her original compositions have brightened many an English class, and her abilities in spheres of business have been evident on many occasions. She excels in history. Her favorite subject? Mathematics! Her ambition? To teach it? I'Iere's to a bright future for a promising statistician. ' Ii, I MARION CECILIA WOODLAND ST. IGNATIUS ATHLETIC CLUB-'30, '31 "Sweet ae the thoughts that savour of content, The quiet mind is richer than a crown." UNE might say that Marion has appeared among us unobtrusively. However, to her companions she is always a reserved, friendly comrade with a certain humorous nature concealed beneath her serenity. In all that she undertakes, in studies or athletics, she manifests a steadfast determination and confidence in her own ability. Marion's latent ambition has not yet been learned, but with her unusual perseverance, she will achieve great things, pursue steadily her life work, and stop only when the highlights of merit and nobility are reached.

BECAUSE she is inclined to be quiet, few of her classmates know our real Mary. Her inherent literary talent, carefully fostered during her course in Cathedral, has blossomed forth in a manner most amazing to less versatile English students. Simple and unaffected, she radiates sincerity, sensed not only by her closest companions, but even appreciated by her less intimate associates. If the veil of the future were to be lifted, we feel sure it would disclose Mary as a novelist and dramatist. Congratulations, Mary! CATHERINE MARIE WYNNE ST.

Her "simple truthfulness" and fidelity to scholastic studies have won the commendation of teachers and classmates. Loyalty is stamped on her many activities. Her enviable traits are numerous and dif versihedg it is thus, difficult to fathom her character appropriately.

Arrived at our enviable goal after a memorable flight, we wish you to accompany us on a trip of retrospection. Our journey has been most hazardous yet it lacked not pleasurable excitement. Four years ago, "The Memorialitef' piloted by Captain Ambition, whirred over the skyscrapers of Obstacle City, bound for the prosaic Port Success. The class of Thirtyfone took passage on the ship, determined to enjoy the trip and profit by every opportunity it offered. According to the Chart, we discovered that the territory to be covered was divided into four great sections-Freshman Valley, Sophomore Lowlands, Junior Plateau and Senior Mountains. Undismayed, we engaged ourselves as mechanics to repair faulty machines, to refuel the engine, to keep our motor well prepared for emergencies. We, as helpers, were under the strict supervision of our officers, our religious teachers, who saw to it that we were replenished with the necessary know' ledge to carry us safely through the nimbus clouds of ignorance and inefficiency. Many were the activities on board "The Memorialitef' many were the cares. Since enjoyment was not the goal we were striving to attain, all soon settled down to ship routine. The class of Thirtyfone began its daily task-studying the World from above. How beautiful it all seemed! Soon the terrestrial glory was to be obscured by dark clouds and terrific storms -examinations. Then it was, that even a greater cooperation was needed between crew and oH'lcers to avert disaster. Thus, the members of the class studied more arduously to achieve honor, to hasten the ship to its destination. We flew over Freshman Valley in the allotted time and were proud of our accomplishment. Yet, there were further obstacles to be overcome. The class decided that it must adopt a definite plan for guiding "The Memorialiten safely through these periodical StOrmS. We reached a decision. Cooperation with the Officers, Directors, and fellow mechanics, from the beginning was necessary. We must study faithfully every night and keep the engine in perfect working order to insure a continuous, safe passage. This solution the class adopted, and examinations were accepted graciously and passed successfully. Thus "The Memorialiteu soared over the second section, avoid- ing air pockets of failed midfterms, and another beacon indicated that our journey was half completed. While passing over Freshman Valley and Sophomore Lowlands, we were engaged in many activities. The crew was talented, and played willingly before an appreciative audience. Many of the Melba type joined the Glee Club. Those who were dramatically inclined sought and gained admission into the ranks of the Drama' tic Club. At this time, a new feature was organized by the class of Thirtyfone, under the leadership of an efficient member of the Board of Directors. It was the Athletic Club which engrossed the attentionof favorites of " the daily dozen." This activity was to prove itself, in time, the most popular organization on board "The Memorialitef' One Hundred Nm: junior Plateau now appeared as strange territory. Here we made our first stop, in order to take on new passengers who were to become a part of the class of Thirty' one g-with joy we welcomed the Annex Girls. As we progressed, many times we thought "The Memorialite" would be lost. Often the engine faltered, but, due to the ability of our Moderators,remained under control and was safely borne through atmospheric and other disturbances. Nothwithstanding its many drawbacks, the flight over junior Plateau was a pleasant one. The class of Thirtyfone was now prepared to face the most risky part of its journey-to soar over the heights of Senior Mountains, the final stretch which was to terminate in the hangar of Port Success. Several novel experiences occurred on the last lap. Even the plane had to accustom itself to its new position of dignity, the envy of all below. Floating far above, its passengers assumed their newlyfconferred honor with perfect ease. Hard and numerous were the final tasks laid upon our shoulders during this period. Besides our usual duties, we had the selection of rings and pendants, nec' essary adornments for our entrance to Port Success. We had to decide upon the style of our long desired dresses and ac uire the sheepskin Without which we could not disembark upon the fertile land of opportunity. Q Our intelligentsia-perservering characters who had been admitted into the Literary Club,-performed their exclusive duty of carrying on the work so nobly begun, of editing "Spires" and the "Arbutus" under the direction of members of the Board. What these journalists produced was a source of great edification, ad- miration and pleasure to their comrades, who enjoyed reading the contributions and loyally supported the staffs. To adorn its already unusual list, replete with achievements, the class of Thirtyfone inaugurated a new feature which was to acquaint us with the latest capabilities of numerous artists. Under proficient guidance, the Art Club ornamented 'The Memorialite," which was soaring high with scarcely a deflection in its course. The class of thirtyfone, imbued with a spirit of loyalty to "The Memorialite," manifested its sentiments by enthusiastic interest in the Athletic Club. So current was this fervor and so lively was the determination to merit honor and glory for our ship, that we were awarded the pennant for achieving the greatest number of points during the season of activities. Prominent athletes of the class won their numerals and letters for their services, which they have rendered to the various teams. Glorious indeed were these achievements! At last our long-sought land loomed in sight. It was time to descend to a soil which augured stranger happenings than even Little America could offer. But the class of Thirtyfone was prepared to face the trials which awaited it, as passage on "The Memorialite" had familiarized it with various difficulties. We scrambled from the cockpit and bid Adieu to the sturdy "Memorialite." Soon it was ready to wend its way through the serene and glorious sky again, to seek the citadels of Obstacle City,where it would be greeted by an eager and a new group of shipmates, taking passage for Port Success.

Gently we turn the leaves of our precious volume. One by one the characters return. There stands the Mikado, attended by his indomitable servant who, to the enjoyment of an appreciative audience, is not the least perturbed by his difficult task of shading with the aid of a parasol his master's irregularly covered pate. Threelittle maids, escaped from a ladies' seminary, shuffle once more across the pages. Withal, we revive a lovely picture. ' How can we supress an ecstatic exclamation of joy as we perceive the darling little Miss Nobody and her disguised "Minstrel Boy" who has searched the whole of New Amsterdam to find the owner of a locket like his own? Amidst the conf gratulatory shouts of Dutch boys and girls, there stand little Miss Nobody, an heiress in truth, and her wooer whose love she is now free to reciprocate. Thus we leave them happily singing of a roseate future. Next the good ship "Pinafore" sails into view, bearing many notables, not the least among whom being the honorable Sir joseph Porter, K.C.B. and his majesty the Mikadowho is attended by his Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary and Court Physician,combined in that inimitable personage-Pooh Bah. Confusion reigns on the upper deck. The captain is in a quandary, while the grotesque def fenders of the law, led by their robust Sergeant, dolefully declare that they have failed in their duty, for Pirates have taken possession of the boat and the passengers are to be held for ransom. All seems lost, when, lo! the Fairy Queen and her little charges enter. With a wave of her wand she transforms the bold buccaneers into dreamy poets. As such, they End worthy companions in the ladies on board and grasp "a lirstfrate opportunity to get married with impunity." A riot of color greets our eyes as we are transported to the picturesque French village of Comville. In the company of the gayly costumed boys and girls we listen once more to the legend of the old Chateau-"When the lost heir returneth, he will clang the bell." Softly, ever sweetly, throughout the portrayal of each operetta, come the strains of an orchestra-our own orchestra. To those loyal members, no hour of practice was too tedious to insure a perfect rendition of the most difficult music laid before them. How dull and unattractive our performances would have been without their vivacious accompaniment! The curtain has fallen. Our reminiscences vanishand a more thoughtful mood descends upon us. It is in this phase of emotion that we utilize this occasion of affectionately dedicating our past achievements to our various moderators and our only coach, Professor Heinroth,without whose generous interest our triumphs would have been impossible.

A flower was borng as a tiny bud, it was caressed gently by the gracious leaves in whose midst it grew, and as it bloomed, all looked upon it with love. Such has been the story of our little "Arbutus," and as the last petals of the flower are slipping from our grasp, we treasure its memory, and revere the recollections of the hours in which its fragrance permeated our lives. Today, as we stand upon the threshold of another world, we realize how dear it has been to us, this little paper, a representative of our youthful aspirations, a connotation of the lofty principles of the Alma Mater to which we accord loving sentiments of filial affection. Through Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years, our budding literateurs asserted themselves in prose and poetry, and to the delight Cor perturbation, as it may bel of the editorial staffs, manuscripts from the "younger girls" flourished. But the greatest pleasure arrived with the advent of the Senior year, when the management of our Arbutus was placed in our own hands, and it was ours to collect, to revise, to prepare material for the press. Its pages have become dear to us, its literary standard has been our prideg and now, when the trailing arbutus is hidden in the sylvan greensward, our own "Arbutus" continues on its way with its messages of good will to all Cathedralites. Its hopes for the future are bright, and in its path of literature we send heavenward a prayer for its continued progress. One Hundred Fifteen One Hundred Slxteen qu ART CLUB The year fourteen hundred liftyftwo witnessed the birth of Leonardo da Vinci, sixteen hundred six greeted the arrival of Rembrandt while nineteen hundred thirtyfone has welcomed, with no less pride, the recently founded Art Club of Archbishop Hughes Memorial. Scarcely had the spirit of art been borne on the wings of Fama, along the corf ridors of Cathedral when "Mirabilie dictum as the Roman poet might have said, one afternoon found assembled in the Art Room every possible Raphael and Van Dyck. Enthusiasm! Spirit! "How soon shall we begin?,"queried each eager applicant. Two weeks later every palette, every brush was so busily engaged that results of which we might well be proud were produced. One cannot easily forget the picturesque posters which greeted the students on every side. They graphically and effectively advertised the Dramatic Club's "Richelieu," and the Glee Club's "Chimes of Normandy." The publication of "Spires" then claimed our undivided attention till the plates were Hnished. Upon the completion of that work, our budding geniuses became absorbed in painting greeting cards for Mother's Day. Whatever achievements we may have attained, whatever accomplishments the Art Club may have realized during its brief history-these have been brought about through the efforts of our esteemed Principal and moderator to whom we now extend our deepest and most sincere thanks. In brief, this is our history. The Art Club has been most successful in mainf taining the standards of the White and Gold. It is to you, our successors, that we extend our earnest wishes for a favorable continuation of all its future undertakings. One Hundred Seventeen One Hundred Eighteen HE ATHLETIC CLUB E-1 'll OUR ATHLETIC CLUB 1930451! A wonderful year for our popular Athletic Club! Organized in October under the able guidance of its moderator, this latest activity has aroused unparalleled enthusiasm on the part of the student body. From the very outset, the club's program has been active and varied, ambitious, too for so young an organization. The Basketball season opened with an interfclass tournament. School and class songs appeared with amazing rapidity. Class spirit was at its highest pitch, as each year boldly Haunted its colors. To the surprise of all, our Freshman friends reached the finals, only to be outwitted by a splendid Senior Six. Next came a thrilling summons,-Varsity tryouts! Who would be chosen? The decision came soon. A team of recognized ability was selected, and a period of instruction followed under a new lcoach, Miss Lillian Gorman. With breathless interest all awaited the opening of the season. Enthusiasm ran high all winter. Each game found our gymnasium a lively and colorful scene. Eager rooters crowded the benches, window sills and staircases. A cheering squad of vigorous Cathedralites led the rousing songs and cheers. Even our Faculty became enthused,- did you witness their attendance at every performance? Soon came Spring, the season when an athlete's fancy turns toward the base' ball diamond. Here were new fields for our girls to conquer. Another interfclass tournament ended on Field Day with a thrilling game between 3B and 4B. Field Day! What a delightful treat that was to rejoice the hearts of the Athletic Club members. This momentous event, the first of its kind in our history, will long remain a cherished memory. The awarding of numerals and monograms followed, and soon we, graduates, were sadly bidding the organization that had grown so dear to us, "Adieu." To what do we ascribe the remarkable success of our club? The answer may be found in the generous support of our Principal and Faculty, the invaluable as- sistance rendered by Miss Gorman, and last but not least, the loyalty of our class' mates. With such assets as these, what organization could fail? A bright future is assured this club, which already might justly echo Caesar's famous "Veni, vidi, vici." One Hundred Nineteen Q Q fi ?

Our time and efforts have been well expended. Freshman year with its hopes, its dreams, its ambitions of newly initiated "high school girls," was brightened by the presentation of Shakespeare's immortal comedy, "As You Like It." So eff fective was it, that "Twelfth Night" was produced toward the close of the follow' ing year. Then in our junior Year came a fanciful drama, an artistic little play which struck a responsive chord somewhere down in our prosaic beings. "The Ivory Door" truly left an indelible impression on us, so attractive was it in its colorful charm, and the excellence of its portrayal. Christmas came once more with its renewal of the celebration of the Birthday of the King and the presentation of "The Gift of Love" easily eclipsed all previous Yuletide performances. In February of this year, active work in Buliwer Lytton's "Richelieu" began in earnest. The individuality of advertising posters, for which we were indebted to the Art Club, proved a valuable asset in stimulating enthusiasm. General co' operation resulted in a superb achievement, and, upon the completion of the splendid play, unanimous praise greeted both players and Madame Anna Daly Fallon, our directress, whose capabilities in dramatics have placed us in the first rank of amateurs. Our glory has been shortflived, and now as we are about to sever our relations with the club whose success formed so great a part in our lives we reflect momentarily on those many happy hours spent in loyal good comradeship. With reluctance we surrender our places to the undergraduates, fully cognizant that they will carry on the splendid work so eiliciently inaugurated by our predecessors and so sacredly cherished by us. We feel confident that they will never deteriorate to the rank of mediocrites and will ever remember the Dramatic Club's great motto, "There is no such word as fail." One Hundred Twenty one One Humired Twentyftwo CLUB RY LITERA THE LITERARY CLUB The Aladdin's lamp of literature has been oursg through the educational vapors which have arisen from it, at each of our quests into its cultural idea, there have come forth new and finer rnotivesg through the eyes of the poets, the novelists, the essayists, we have been mentally transported into other realms of fancy, and the knowledge we gleaned therein has been complete and satisfying. This acquaintance with the literary geniuses of various ages did not occur haphazardly. Though, as a result of our English work, we realized the wealth of beauty that lies concealed in the many phases of literature, our enthusiasm was not satiated. Our knowledge led us to seek a further development. Thus, with a stimulus given for our progress in literary fields, the desire among the pupils of our dear high school culminated in the formation of our Literary Club. It proved to be a fruitful undertaking from the beginning, What a marvelous task it was to encourage pupils to appreciate those valuable works that embody so much loftiness of thought and charm of expression! The first members of the club, with true "Memorialite" spirit, endeavored to fan the flickering lights of literary knowledge, to remove the draught of modern Ection that threatened to extinguish them entirely, and to nurse them into a steady flame. Their number was few and their task difficult, but they persevered and finally handed down to us the "literati" of '31, a club that has had its foundation firmly established and most of its difhcult work completed. Whatever success we have attained in this field can be attributed to our dear sisters, especially our Principal, Sister Marie Annette and to our Moderator, Miss M. Ripple. We have carried on the work so courageously begun by its first Qmembers, retaining the sentiment with which the Club was organized and always conducted. In Disraeli's words, we may say, "Time, the great destroyer of other men's happiness, only enlarges the patrif mony of literature to its possessorf' One Hundred Twenty three PROPHECY Alighting from a plane I entered a cave. Through winding, intricate labyrinths, merging now into thousands of endless, dim passages, then past dark, secluded caverns and finally peering forth into inky blackness, I hastily followed my guide, a wretched, cackling dwarf with a shining, swinging lantern. My courage mingled with a sense of utter desolation, as I harkened to the sonorous refrain of distant, sensuous music. Then my weird conductor gratefully hissed: "Lol Thou approachest the honorable Fates. Ask what thou wilt." Instantly we reached a turning, and I beheld a spacious, tapestried hall, clouded with incense and suffused with the ethereal glow of numerous hanging lamps. Seated on a dais were the three sister Fates, the objects of my quest. In a commanding tone one of these cried, "Suppliant, thou seekest the futures of thy classmates? Patience, silence. Only we hold the keys to days not yet inscribed in the annals of man." With visible trepidation, I muttered a faint ,"Yes, most worthy one!" Then came silence, a charged, miserable silence that was finally broken by a harsh command. "Bring sleep, Morpheus, I say, Morpheus, thy sleep!" Slowly the sisters beckoned me and then from behind a partly raised curtain, I gazed across a panorama of hills now deepening into valleys, of cities stretching toward forests, and rivers gracefully losing themselves in the sea. Drowsiness ruled. I was sinking, softly. Vaguely I imagined. "Now thou behold their destiniesf' an eerie voice commanded. A hurried impatient sigh, a muffled turning of leaves, and then I found myself in the cabin of the TransfContinental passenger plane. Truly I was weary, for the past hourwe had been awinging westward past the towering skyscrapers of New York toward the suburban districts of New jersey and Pennsylvania. As yet, my fellow passengers had found little or no time for congeniality and thus I was left to my own resources. Suddenly, I was startled from my reverie by the familiar voice of Mary Agnes Riley. After exchanging brief greetings, we fell into discussing the lots chosen by our sister Cathedralites. "Well, you see I'm quite a modern 'womanfaboutftownf " casually suggested Mary Agnes, "while motoring upfstate, the other day I chanced to stop at a charmf ing teafroom. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the two proprietors to be none other than that happy pair, KathleenMcClaurey and EileenMons. We "talked shop" and finally exchanged our knowledge about the class of '31. Both of them reside in 'Shadysidef Margaret Brady, Muriel Mackenzie and Catherine Sheehy are some of the prominent members of that 'just married set,' composed mostly of our old Cathedral friends. You must remember them, why, there is Lucy Downing, a rising young journalist, Mary Brennan, style's editor of 'Delineatorf Josephine One Hundred Twentyffouf Kiely, Gertrude Twiname, Mary Schepens, Betty Wolfe, America's leading inovelist, and her inseparable chum Marie Curry." "I felt so proud the other day," continued Mary Agnes, "when I heard judge Ann McCluskey commend Johanna Sullivan and Mary Barrett for the stand taken by them with regard to their clients. I just imagined that we were back again in Cathedral after I had read the praise Mary O'Brien gave to Marie Mullane's and Marguerite Hugue's book of Sonnets and to Mary Leurele's book on 'World Problemsf In her preface, Mary thanked Professor Rita Carlin of Columbia, Prof fessor Mary Caskin of Smith and Professor Eileen Curtin of Vassar." "Yes, "I added, "I happened to see Mary Woolley's recent play that Irene Mc Donnell, Helen Curtin, Rita Clymer and Veronica I. Murphy dramatized under the direction of Frances Sullivan. Florence Long was publicity agent and Philomena Lo Guidice and Hilda Miscione were the dress designers. By the way, Eugenia Corbera and Anne Dowling gave it remarkable 'Writefups' in the 'Evening Postf " Suddenly we were interrupted by a smile of recognition. It was Mildred Vogel, Winsome and cheerful as ever, Mildred was president of a brokerage in Wall Street and incidentally an able politician. "The last time I was at the legislature" she remarked, "it seemed like a Cath' edral reunion. Catherine Farrelly astonished the entire assembly by her tenfhour filibuster. She was seconded by her colleagues, Vivienne Fille, Sarah Culligan and Althea Reid, whereas she was ably opposed by Margaret Hedlund and her followers, Loretto Bruen, Veronica C. Murphy, Eleanor Cunningham and Margaret P. O'Connor. "Yes" she continued "Wall St. is teeming with the class of '31. Why, Martha Leik, Mary Matzok, Grace Bacigalupo, Marion Woodland, Margaret Hickey, Catherine Joyce, Sheila McHugh and Catherine Logan are familiar figures on the Curb and in the Exchange." "Glancing at the Sports' Edition, I noticed Catherine Curran's distinguished articles on 'Women in Sportsf She mentioned Betty Fleck, Mary O'Connor, Helen Stevenson as the greatest trio on the basketball court. Then too, she commented on the records of Anna Hiro, Catherine Chrenko, Rita Oakley and Esther Brown, the great golf champions of the country." Mary Agnes then asked, "Did you happen to read Helen Henderson's splendid editorial in the 'New York Times' on 'True Welfare Work?' Helen paid a grace' ful tribute to Alice Garvey, Mary Hyland, Mary Gately, Catherine Taylor, Anne judge, Sebastiano Marino, and Helen Donnelly for their wonderful nursing during the great mine disaster." V "By the way" I supplemented, "you must have heard that Virginia Brink, Rita Walsh, jean Dickson, Elsie Cormier, Margaret Davis and Mary Rogers have opened up a kindergarten in White Plains." "Yes," continued Mildred, "Westchester likes education. Mary A. Flynn is experimenting in spreading Civic Repertory Theatres, together with Rita McCoy, Margaret Horn and Marion Tyddf' 4 One Hundred Twenty fwc "Incidentally," I remarked, "during my travels in France I was greeted by Gertrude Beruard, Mary Rice and Mary Parker, French correspondents for the Associated Press. I chanced to meet Muriel Reutter and Naomi Clapp in the Louvre successfully sketching the "Mona Lisa." We started chatting and they enlightened me as to the whereabouts of some of the other artists. It seems that Lia Bertoni and Elizabeth Potter are illustrators for a fashionable magazine, while Betty Brown has just finished the pictures for Dorothy Feerick's latest novel, "Big Money." "Really you can not imagine how small this world is," confided Mary Agnes, "why, in one afternoon I saw Margaret Henchy over television, Constance Horan and a sextet composed of Dorothy Rafferty, Eleanor Landy, Anne Weir and Mary Flynn, Catherine Takacs and Kathleen Egan played. However, Philomena Tucci, Katherine Trier, and Mary O'Donnell have turned physiologists and are all popular over television. Catherine O'Rourke, Dorothea Taylor, Marie McLaughlin, Evelyn Bardes and Mary Mellor are all famous for their bedftime stories over that indispensible invention-'the radio.' " Suddenly, a tanned sportswoman approached our circle. Who could mistake Virginia Wilmoth in the role of an aviatrix? Eagerly she contributed her part to the story of the class of '31. "Yes, while recently flying over Arkansas, I chanced to alight in a large Held. I sought the owners and was greeted by the smiling faces of Margaret Maguire, Mary Cleary, Anne Myhan and Lucille Lee who are progressive agriculturistsf' "While in Shanghai," she added, "I met Helen Hughes, Mary Ryan, Gwendolyn Lee and Catherine Smart, members of Cook's Travelling Agency. It seems Cather' ine is a regular correspondent with Anna Higgins and Mary Vaughan, who are at present engaged in exploding the Einstein Theory on the top of the Alps." "Recently I made a tour of inspection in Julia Richman High School," inf terrupted Mildred, "I was greeted by Marcella Kuhner, who is head of the Def partment of Latin and is so ably assisted by Margaret Colgan, Marion Bickner, and Claire Lamersg Mary Curry, Majorie Fleming and Margaret Ryan are in the French Department in the same building." "Last month," Mary Agnes told us, "Ethel Henry invited me to spend the week' end at her home on Long Island. While there we were discussing the Class of '31. Martina Brennan, Mary Freehill and Juliette Lippe are the architects who designed the new "Times Building," built under the supervision of Mary Farmer and Mary Kelly." - Again Mildred smiled, Isabella Hastings, Viola Maistre, and Kathleen Leen are congenially located as dieticians for Schraftsg you must recall Helen Roche's and Mary McShane's aptitude for Irish dancing-well, both of them are now happily married in the Emerald Isle, They write to Katherine Knowd and Catherine Tracy, elhciency experts, that their homes are a veritable oasis for Cathedralites travelling abroad, particularly Rose McBride, Dorothy O'Connor and Elizabeth Cowan, all chemists studying in Germany." One Hundred Twentysix "Yes," I managed to add, "recently I was sent to interview Mary Cos rove, Florence Buckley, Mary Mayowetz, and Mary Fanning, who had just returnedg from their explorations in the Arctic.

"Speaking of explorations," Virginia quietly remarked, "you must remember that Kathryn Spiess, Anne Coby, Madeline Nash, Margaret Brennan and Rose Matera are now engaged in excavating the tombs of the cliff dwellers in New Mex- ico. "Lately I became domesticated," chuckled Mary Agnes appreciatively, "while looking for a cook book I chanced upon that of Ellen McDonnell and Eleanor Mc Donald." "Yes," continued Mary Agnes, " '31 is proud of Frances Quirk, Elizabeth Watson, Anna Carroll and Mary Mullen, they are all teaching in Cathedral now. I happened to visit Frances and she is still smiling over Marion Scanlon's and Eleanor Chiappino's mischievous youngsters.

"Stranger events than that have happened," I remarked, "why I'm not usually interested in Science but Frida Hofstetter's and Mary Mc Mahon's book on 'The Elements of Physics' is wonderful. Mildred Hamel's essay on the 'Essentials of Music' is considered a masterpiece, also." "Have you heard the amazing news, I almost forgot it?" asked Mildred. "Why Margaret Stewart, Mary Martin and Margaret Glasson are operating a distinctive detective agency." Mary Agnes smiled, "Margaret Galvin, Dorothy O'Connor and Mary Mc Guire have merged and are owners of a chain of miniature golf courses. Marjorie Kelly and Katherine Saunders are ardent sympathizers of the "No Homework Movementg whereas Catherine McGarry and Viola Laird are proud inventors of a mechanical device for washing classroom boards."

I was startled, yea, even fearful as the three sister Fates hastily veiled the misty silhouettes of Destiny and gruffly chanted, "Follow they guide, follow they guide." Blinded with the soft glow of day, I hastily stumbled through fields, ethereal in the gloaming twilight of a spring evening. ' MARY 'E.

H-V-J "The heavens are telling the glory of God, The wonder of his works displays the firmamentf' On the occasion of the formal dedication of the Papal radio station, HfVfJ by our Holy Father, Pius XI, these famous words were graphically illustrated. On that momentous day the Supreme Pontiff called the whole world to witness the manif festation of God's power and majesty by quoting from Holy Scripture, "Audite caeli quae loquor, audiat terra verba oris mei !" February 12, 1931 'will long be remembered in the annals of history, not only by the Catholic clergy and laity, but by the whole world. On that day, men, women, and children regardless of race or creed, harkened with strange, unanalyzed emotions to a voice-the voice of a great ruler, the voice of the great white Shepherd of the Church, the voice of the most important man in the world of religion. Even skeptics, no matter how bitterly they had scoffed at the Pope, were compelled to reverence and respect the owner of that voice. How could it be otherwise, when he is the chosen one of Christ, His vicar on earth? It was indeed a colorful scene that attracted the eye of the visitor in Vatican City on the occasion of the Pontiflqs address. The advent of the Pa al party was heralded by a fanfare of trumpeters. The official yellow and white ofp the pontifical arms mingled with the purple of the monsignori and the white robes, and the red and gold headdress of the Pope. The ancient and modern worlds seemed to have been blended in the picturesque blue, red, and yellow uniforms of the Swiss guards and the slender aerials of the radio unit. It was an event that would stir the imaginaf tion of even the most humble artist. The Pope, enthroned on a richly upholstered chair before the microphone, spoke in Latin for more than fifteen minutes. His words thrilled his millions of listeners, although many of them were unable to understand the speech in its ori inal form. The chief feature of the demonstration lies in the fact that the voice ofg the Supreme Pontiff could be distinctly heard in all corners of the globe. About an hour elapsed before the Englishfspeaking audience had the added pleasure of hearing Monsignor Spellman, an attache of the Secretary of State of the Vatican, reproduce the address in their native tongue. ' The majority of the chief broadcasting centers in the United States used all their facilities to bring the program to the American nation. This was a gesture of courtesy greatly appreciated by our Catholic people. Few foreign stations were as fortunate as they in " picking up" the discourse. As the words of Pius XI traveled over the ether waves, they were crossed by waves of love and hate, respect and resentment. There are those of other faiths who do not yet understand why Peter speaks with authority, while their own min' isters are continually disagreeing among themselves on some question of faith or morals. We can almost imagine one of them saying, "Why should it be given to him to speak as one having power? Why is it that to him alone the whole world listens?" The words of God seemed to permeate the air as that epochal event was taking place, "He that heareth you, heareth Me. He that despiseth you, despiseth Me." One Hundred Twenty nine Kings, rulers, scientists and many of the world's great personalities have been heard in many lands through the instrumentality of the microphone, "but never has the cohesiveness of mankind had so striking a manifestation, giving an incalculable impetus to those cementing processes which shall yet bind all nations together in a covenant of peace and holy fellowship, proclaiming one God, one law, one element, and one farfoff divine event to which the whole creation moves." Over a thousand years ago, Christ said to His Apostles, "Go teach ye all nations." His followers were simple, unassuming men and to many this command seemed preposterous. Education, intelligence and a deep understanding of human nature were necessary if the light of God's truth were to be carried to regions where ignorance and iniquity prevailed. But God was not unmindful of His creatures, and through His Providence the miracle of tongues has been accomplished. As time progressed and the mode of living changed, the Church remained steadfast to the fundamental teachings of her Founder, but some of the ecclesiastical laws have been modified in order to adjust themselves to modern conditions. Conf trary to the general belief of nonfCatholics, the Church does not fear progress, rather, she has done all in her power to promote advancement in science and the arts. Many critics say that the Church is antiquated, that she fears science because it will event' ually cause her downfall. It must have been a sad blow to these critics when the Catholic clergy not only recognized the radio by introducing it into many of the churches in order to broadcast Christian belief to all the world, but also laid plans for the installation of an official station in the Vatican itself. To Catholics everywhere, the day on which HfVfJ, constructed under the direction of Senator Guglielmo Marconi, was inf augurated was one of the most glorious in the history of the Church. Of the many beautiful passages in Holy Scripture relating to the reception of the word of God, one seems to have a special bearing on this event. On one occasion referring to Himself as the Good Shepherd, Christ said "Other sheep I have that are not of this fold-they shall hear My voice." Truly they have heard His voice! Again, our shepherd, Pius XI, the spiritual descendant of the selffnamed Good Shepherd, has called to his flock, and they have heard him. He did not speak at ran' dom, every word he uttered had a deep significance. He addressed himself not only to those who have never forsaken God, but also to all heretics and unbelievers. He reminded them that it is the earnest wish of all Catholics that all outside the true Church may one day recognize the fallacy of their beliefs and that, in reality, there may be but "one flock and one shepherd." Years from now the radio may suffer oblivion, yet the memory of that day on which the sovereign Pontiff addressed mankind will live forever. One of the contemporaneous newspapers has defined it Httingly as, "Something to stir the imagination, to give one a sense of the continuity and the variety of the human story, to endow the inventiveness of our time with a new beauty, and to clothe one's faith with an expanding power, is to be found in the great event, when from the Vatican, the Pope spoke over the radio to his people and to the world." CATHERINE E. CURRAN One Hundred 'Thirty 7 "4""'f!'1'f"i ELIZABETH BAYLEY SETON 17744821 "A great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and tribes and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and in sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes and palms in their hands-CApocalyppse VIII 91. "The Litany of the Saints is not a sealed book of the dead pastg it is a never' ending scroll to be written on until the day of judgment." But lately have we added to those illustrious names an inscription that attests the faith of North Amer' ica's early missionary heroes, an inscription engraved in the blood of martyred Jesuit priests.

A Today, with confidence and persistence, we Catholics of America are fostering another canonizationg we would see Elizabeth Bayley Seton, triumphant with the halo of a saintg we desire to witness her formal installation as a member of God's blessed, and know her to be acknowledged and invoked by the Christian world. Well may we urge the cause of beatirication of the foundress of our Order of the Sisters of Charity in the United States, endeavoring to secure some little token for her, in loving memory of our weighty indebtedness. It was she who opened a new avenue to education, to purity of life, and who blazed the way for countless others who would renounce the world, seeking perfection in silent sacrifice and conf stant labor beneath the standard of our beloved Nazarene. Mother Seton proved to be the spiritual inspiration and consolation of many while on earth. This may be shown very strikingly even in our own time. At the recent unveiling of a tablet in memory of this holy woman in Saint Peter's, Barclay Street, on the ninth of May, Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt sent the following message: "In my childhood days, my father often told me of Mother Seton, for she was a very close connection of the Roosevelt family, and her sisterfinflaw was, I think, my greatfaunt. Her distinguished nephew, Archbishop Bayley was a first cousin of my father, James Roosevelt, and they were very close friends. In our family we have traditions of the saintly character of Mother Seton." We too would honor her under the title of glorious patroness and in the future recognize her as our first native North American Saint. MARY E.

M MoDERN LITERATI In recent years, a certain faction of pessimists has arisen, asserting that the standard of literature maintained throughout the world is being gradually, but perf ceptibly lowered. They have attempted to prove this allegation by pointing, among other things, to the wide use of free verse in poetry and to the growth of belief in imagery, that is, the conviction that poetry should primarily present an image or picture. However, many of our presentfday writers, poets and dramatists have refuted such a sweeping statement by their ingenious productions. In English literature, Alice Meynell and Francis Thompson are prominent figures. Above all, they were Roman Catholic poets, and, though of different temperament and expression, in inf tensity of religious experience, their compositions might be considered of parallel value. Alice Meynell had a peaceful career, devoid of many hindrances which confronted other struggling poets. This tranquillity is reflected strikingly in her poetry. In one of her best works, "The Shepherdessf' the delicacy of her art is easily discerned: "She walks-the lady of my delight- A shepherdess of sheep Her flocks are thoughts. She keeps them white, She guards them from the steepg She feeds them on the fragrant height, And folds them in for sleep." Francis Thompson, a contemporary and lifelong friend of Alice Meynell, was at first inclined toward great complexity in his poetical strivings. Later, he composed songs concerning love and nature but his prominent manuscripts were elaborate or highly embellished odes. The most sublime and hauntingly beautiful of these is the wellfknown "Hound of Heaven" in which he relates his mystical experience with the Divine Being, whom he pictures as pursuing him until he yielded and became one with Him. Of all the lines in English poetry, these are perhaps the most forceful and awefinspiring: "Up vistaed hopes I sped, And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmed fears, From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbed pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat-and a Voice beat More instant than the Feet- 'All things betray thee, who betrayest Me."' One Hundred Thirty-two Among those of British descent who have chosen America as a scope for their literature, Gilbert K. Chesterton ranks first in importance. He is a novelist and poet of distinction, and a journalist by profession, yet he is most widely known as an essayist. Although a fiery democrat and a despiser of aristocracy, he is far from being a socialist. In his writing, he revels in antitheses, indentities and absurdities. This genius substantiates his contentions with facts, in an unornamented and logical manner, albeit hidden under an exterior veil of subtle humor. One of Chesterton's widelyfread books is characteristically entitled "The Defendant." True to its title, the collection of essays endeavors to point out the beneficial qualities of dime novels, immense public statues, unnecessary information in newspapers, heraldry and a score of other nonsensical trivialities. Cheap fiction, he argues, is written to amuse or to thrill, and since amusement and romance are legitimate desires in man, why compare "Hamlet" with such novels? Chesterton also denounces those who invariably call good things bad, and cites his belief that the only definite evil existing in the world tofday is the ability of a few rich men to collect God's acres into their vast estates and thus deprive the majority of prof perty. But this book does not outrank "The Victorian Age in Literature," published in 1913, in which he reviewed conspicuous writers like Carlyle, Arnold, Cobbett and Mill and made distinctions which will be of permanent strength in English criticism. In the Held of Irish literature, we find a distinguished poet-Padraic Colum, a protege of George William Russell, whose verse ranks high by reason of its sterling honesty and purity of observation. He has gathered the greater part of his material from experience and from his lengthy residence in Ireland. His pictures are principally of peasants at work, of aged women by firesides and of "jeunes filles" spinning. All are remarkable for the truth which predominates them. Padraic Colum is a realist and his plays deal with the conflicts which rage within the very beings of typical Irish peasants. Always natural, never stilted, his characters appeal to all. His best play, "Thomas Muskerry," written in 1910, relates the sacrihces which Muskerry willingly made for his family and though he dreams of happy independence when he shall retire from his position as master of a workhouse, these dreams never come true for his greedy relatives hedge him in till he dies of utter neglect. The pathetic portrayal draws aside the curtain of ignorance and reveals in all its immensity the problem of family life in Ireland. In 1922, Padraic Colum received an honorable mention in "Poetry" for his "Swift's Pastoral." . Among our great American poets, Edwin Arlington Robinson stands fore' most. Since the Nineties he has struggled against dire poverty in New York. It was from' Thomas Hardy and George Cramme that he copied his strong adherence to common life but soon after he went on to develop his own individual style. In all One Hundred Thirty three his writings, he seeks to convey the vanity and futility of human life and pictures baffled humanity stumbling, wending its vain way to destruction. In a humorous mood he tells how Miniver Cheevy yearned for the romantic past: "Miniver cursed the commonplace And eyed a khaki suit with loathing, He missed the medieval grace Of iron clothing." Robinsons poems are often difficult to comprehend, yet they are replete with beauty beyond the attainment of almost any living poet. The number of characters he has created essentially sets him apart from his rivals, but his chief characteristic rests in his combination of profundity and preciseness. Among his best works are "The Master, "Ridhard Cory" and "Ben Jonson Entertains a Man from Stratfordf' In 1921, he received the Pulitzer Prize of one thousand dollars for his "Collected Poems" which was regarded as the book of the most enduring value to American literature published during that year, and with this award, he gained recognition as a great American poet. Francis Carlin, termed "The New Floor-Walker Poet Genius" is so called because he lives two distinct lives-one as a poet, the other as a floor superintendent in R. H. Macy's store. Though born in America, he has a deep affection for Ireland and a passion for beauty which, when they blend, produce most harmonious music. "The Provinces" is an excellent illustration: "O God, that I May arise with the Gael To the song in the sky Over Inisfail! Ulster, your dark Mold for meg Munster, a lark Hold for me! Connaght, a caoine, Croon for meg Leinster, a mean Stone for me! O God, that I May arise with the Gael To the song in the sky Over Inisfail!" Another exemplar of the worth of modern literature is Carl Sandburg. It was among the factories and railroads of the Middle West that this son of a Swedish immigrant found themes for his poetry, thus proving himself a poet of the new order of life in the United States. As such he is the voice of the tumultuous elements in One Hundred Thinyffour American existence. Remarkable, indeed, is his boldness and challenging attitude toward adults contrasted with his tenderness towards children. In "Winter Milk" he shows this sympathy toward the young when he says of his own daughter: "There are dreams in your eyes, Helga, Tall reaches of wind sweep the clear blue. The winter is young yet, so young. Only a little cupful of winter has touched your lips." Though an advocate of free verse, he employs all the beauty of words, of which he is master. Describing Chicago, he says of her: "Hog Butcher for the world, Tool makers, Stackers of Wheat, Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler, Stormy, husky, brawling, City of the Big Shoulders." An excellent example of his power to summon beautiful words to express his emotions is given in such lines as these: "In the loam we sleep, In the cool, moist loam, To the lull of years that pass, And the break of stars. From the loam, then, The soft warm loam We riseg To shape of rose leaf, Of face and shoulder, We stand, then. To a whiff of life Lifted to the silver of the sun Over and out of the loam A day." One of Sandburg's chief traits is his ability to combine the native and local in him which evolves poems like "Chicago" with the universal, which helps him to respond to poetical inspirations. It was in 1920 that his "Smoke and Steel" was awarded the Poetry Society Prize. Since we can now boast of so profuse and varied a selection of literati, with their beauty of thought, force of expression, sterling honesty of verse and realism, it would seem that the standard of literature has been raised and its banner un' furled to float above a world which seeks true poetry, mighty drama and choice prose. MARY OlDONNELL. One Hundred Thirty fin REALISM Throughout the history of literature there has never been a more marked ten' dency toward a democratic style than at the present. The influence of popular educaf tion has led to a striking and fundamental change in contemporary literature which distinguishes it from the historical type. The modern trend shows diversification. The reading public is now too large to interest itself in one dominant phase, and so there has developed a literary movef ment in the last decade of the nineteenth century which has catered to the wishes of the populace and failed to display any decisive direction. However, just as roman' ticism characterized the early nineteenth century and classicism the early eighteenth, so now in the present confusion of literature there may be discerned one tendency which, if developed, may prove to be the distinguishing impulse of the twentieth century. This tendency is realism. The interest of the vast reading public in realities, facts, has determined this new trend. Whereas formerly a man of letters achieved success by "leaving something so written to aftertimes that they should not willingly let it die" QMiltonj-today, the greatness of a writer depends upon his ability to retain the attention of the masses for a few years instead of a "fit audience though few" for generations. Accordingly, the introduction of realism in contemporary writ' ings has broken down the stately conventions of literary minds of the past. The modern novel, for instance, mirrors life more intimately than ever before. It symbolizes realities without camouflage. In modern English literature the term suggests without dispute Galsworthy, Arnold Bennett and Sheila KayefSmith. Galsworthy is a realist in every sense of the word. A humanitarian by temper' ament and a lawyer by training, all his work is done with a definite social purpose in View of which his skill and technique serve as a means. His satire is unconcealed as, also is his sympathy. Class distinction, he recognizes as the cardinal fact in society. Hence his novels deal chiefly with class opposition. He is, however, even more successful than others in preventing the didactic element in his novel from over- powering its quality. "Every grouping of life and character has its inherent moral," he says, and according to his own views, it is the artist's business 'iso to pose the group as to bring the moral poignantly to the light of day." Galsworthy was slow in reaching the heights of artisitc greatness and the first recognition of his genius did not come till 1906, at the publication of "The Man of Property" which really was the Erst of a series of novels, that, taken together, com' pose a unique volume "The Forsyte Saga" proper, beginning with "The Man of Property" and ending with "To Let," traces the varying fortunes of the Forsytes from 1886 to 1920. The later series beginning with "The White Monkey" begins its action in 1922 and continues the tale of the younger generation up to the death of Soames Forsyte in 1926. This complete set may now be found under the title, "A Modern Comedy." It only remains to be seen that so skilled a novelist cannot help but give evidence of that adeptness in his writings, and indeed, in recognition of his abilities, it seems more than probable that generations to come will accept "The Forsyte Saga" not On Hundred Thirtyfsix only for the unusual theme of the story but also as a masterpiece of fictional art. Galsworthy's nomination to the Order of Merit in succession to Thomas Hardy in 1929 gave authoritative recognition of his supremacy among the men of letters of our times. Almost inseparably linked with Galsworthy is Arnold Bennett. It was only after years of apprenticeship that Bennett emerged, a novelist of distinction. As a background for his works, he immortalized the "Five Towns" in which he lived, and proceded to recount the lives of the inhabitants with an unsparing realism which reminds one of the realists of France. The monotony of such an environment is artistically relieved by the representation of characters of real worth. Bennett combines both realism and romance in a most unusual and lifelike man' ner. The "Old Wives' Tales" published in 1908 is an example of this. By tracing the careers of two sisters of different aspirations and temperament, he succeeds in his purpose. In the "Clayhanger" trilogy he again associates two characters of opposite tendencies, the faithful realist, Edwin, and the romanticist, Hilda. Bennett, however, attained the peak of success when he wrote "Buried Alive," a skit that he has never excelled. This is a story of the almost supernatural experf ience of a man surviving himself, attending his own funeral and enjoying his post' humous fame. His strange experience, nevertheless, is brought on by the most natural means and does not detract from the author's realisitc structure. Now, quite naturally, we come to Miss Sheila KayefSmith who owes much to the example of Galsworthy and Bennett, in their interpretation of character by all possible means. In the main, Miss Smith has confined herself to the realms of Sussexg indeed, she is the spokesman of those simple, hardfworking folk whose lives are the embodif ment of simplicity and nobility. It was she who first focused the attention of the outside world on Sussex, on those "who live close to the soil and are a part of it." Miss Smith's ability to discern beauty in the rudest of Nature's creations, has elevated her above the usual position of novelist. Her books constitute a world of reality and give us a sketch of true romance-the rugged romance of the soil. The most significant of her works are "The Tramping Methodist," "Starbrace," "Green Apple Harvest"and"Sussex Gorge." The latter, an epic of the land, published in 1916, was readily granted the place of honor among the novels of its time. In the language of realism, itis "the power of a tiny plot of earth over the ceaseless strivings of one man." Despite her genius for portraying persons and scenes as they really are, Sheila KayefSmith did not produce her greatest novel until 1922. "Joanna Godden' is a masterpiece of literary creation and portrayal. No character in art or literature could ever equal this one. Traits of both weakness and steadfastness are combined in the heroine. It is the tale of a girl who, in behalf of her sister's interests, attempts to banish true love from her heart only to find that love cannot be swerved by or' dinary mortals. Miss Smith has indeed well deserved the diadem of honor that is hers, for her works, like those of Galsworthy and Hardy, have been most significant in ushering in this new reign in literature-the reign of realism. MARY A. OQCONNOR One Hundred Thirty seven MIDfTOWN NEW YORK "Architecture is frozen music"-Schelling New York is truly a city of extremes. She has justly earned this appellation by her blending of contrasts in the formation of one mighty metropolis, the most unique in the world. This may be readily seen by an observation of the architecture around us. Of all the modern municipal structures, "the skyscraper," by preeminence, is the famous Empire State, called the Smith Building in honor of its president, our internationally known exfgovernor Alfred E. Smith. Opened officially on the first of May of this year, it received its just recognition as the highest building in the world. It represents the work of skilled architects, engineers, scientists, mechanics and workmen, and stands, majestic in its entirety, a monument to the achievements of our generation. Reaching twelve hundred feet into the air, its white brick and aluminum reflecting the light, its panes glittering in the sun, it furnishes an ideal setting for modern business. From the completeness of its rocky foundation to the mooring mast on its tower, it more than satisfies the exacting demands of the present age. Within walking distance of the Empire State, we find Saint Patrick's Cathedral, whose cornerstone was laid by our illustrious Archbishop john Hughes on August 15, 1858,'but whose splendid structure was only completed and dedicated in 1879. The edifice is done in the inimitable Gothic style, and with its grey granite walls, intricate, pointed arches and magniicent stainedfglass windows, it is "the cynosure of neighboring eyes." The twin spires whose "silent fingers point to heaven," are sharply outlined against the sky in beautiful immobility, exhorting us to look up,-up to God. The interior is sublime in its solemnityg the long, shaded aisles, mysterious recesses and vaulted ceiling are typical of the old French Cathedrals. Everything about the sacred precincts seems so foreign to bustling New York. The fitful gleam of the sanctuary lamp, the stillness and sense of security make this house of God a world apart. Not only do these two buildings differ in architecture and atmosphere, but also in purpose. The Empire State was erected as a memorial to commercialism, Saint Patrick's Cathedral as a shrine consecrated to the worship of God. Yet there is an indefinable connection between the two that a contemplative soul cannot fail to grasp. Both these artistic conceptions were realized because of the guidance and inspiration of the Great Creator. These masterpieces of beauty also exemplify that the material and spiritual life of man are so closely interwoven, that it is by the power and superiority of the spiritual that the material may triumph.

Wynne One Hundvcd Forty five F AREWELL The aereal castles of youth rise majestically in the skies of the Future, with eagerness and ambition do we, pilots, direct our little ship as it pursues its winged flight toward strange and novel spires. Storms and tribulations perhaps lie before us. Through calm and turmoil, through sun and wind, through light and dark, our plane may be destined to wend its way, with trepidation we, its guides, begin to fathom the mysteries of the life before us. Yet, with each tinge of sadness comes a new sweetness-a germination of love for the atmosphere we so reluctantly leave. One day, our little craft will pause awhile, and, in retrospection, its passengers will recall the cherished ideals they have maintained, the nimf bus clouds they have weathered, the successes and triumphs which they have garnered. Then, as the beauteous melody of youth is poured forth in a last glorious strain, our little plane shall stopgto prepare its passenf gers for another great Flight, when it shall bear us forward, not as a class, but singly, to receive the approbation of the Master Pilot in the Harbor of little ships of fancy.
