THE ECHO -
St. Andrew's Day
Every year St. Andrew's date
Brings our boys a happy fete.
Powers that be, without delay
To their Bishop tribute pay.
Music next begins to flow
To the strains that people know.
It's a pleasant thing to hear
Young folks' hearty yell and cheer.
Pat then comes and makes a bow
the Bishop 'tis our vow-
Faith and hope and love to keep
And a lasting harvest reap.
Ed. O'Neill, you make us feel
No manls honor We should steal.
Nor to fritter nor to fret
At the honors we can't get.
the Glee Club with its songs
our spirit that it longs
For the days we went to school
And a swimming in the pool.
Eugene Cull with main and might
us of a father's rightf-
his children should be taught
for fads the master fought.
McKiernan's strength and stay
mighty sermon lay-
we oft our neighbors cheat
And the Lord's design defeat.
Next some music, noise and sound
Raised our feet just from the ground,
For the band with rash desire
Tried to get the pe0p10'S i1'0-
Brcsnahan with football dope,
Starts to raise the studcnt's 110139
So hc tells us just for fun
old Dooley played and won.
Pat and James made such a hit
That the audience had a fit,
For the girls' new country Rub,
Played the perfect poor old Boob.
Victory songs-which students sing
Always make the echoes ring,
Sure a victory they did score
As they ended with a roar.
Then the Bishop glad and gay
Closed the doings of the day,
He advised us strong and clear
To serve our Lord so good and dear.
St. Andrew's Day
Commemorating the twenty-second
anniversary of the episcopal conse-
cration of the Right Reverend Her-
man Joseph Alerding, our beloved
bishop, the students gave a most en-
joyable musical and literary enter-
tainment in the new study hall, Wed-
nesday afternoon, December 29th.
The Bishop's Feast Day" is an occa-
sion eagerly anticipated by all the
students at the Central Catholic High
School, but to the Senior class it is
the day of days before graduation,
for to them goes the destinction of
"doing the honors" on the occasion.

erend A. E. LaFontaine, diocesan su-
perintendent of schools, those present

THE ECHO Merry Christmas! In spite of the widespread eyforts being made to
de-Christianize Christmas by vainly pretending to trace its origin to pagan
times and customs, by flooding the world with picture cards devoid of all
religious sentiment and featuring glowing yule-logs, snow-covered hills and
dales and sparkling holly sprigs, and by giving over the day and the season
entirely to social amusements and unsocial carousals, it must and will rank
first, last and always as as Christian feast to the core. Is it not, indeed, the
birthday of the Christ, aye, even the feast of Christ's Mass? The very
name stamps its unmistakably Christian character.
I ' Merry Christmas! The joy which the greeting bespeaks should have
source in the soul. The good tidings tell us that "this day is born to us
a Saviour." So our joy is that of the inner man, but not that only. Out
of its very fullness it bubbles over to the outer, physical man, and thereby
the whole man is made happy. That is why innocent fun and feasting and
even fireworks are strictly in order at the Christmas season. Everybody
is privileged to be a child about the crib of Bethlehem.
Merry Christmas! We have heard it said, and with truth, that there
is no happiness like that which comes from making others happy. Let us,
then, make our Infant Lord happy by devoutly hearing Mass-even more
than once--on Christ's Mass Day, and loyally receiving into our hearts Him
for whom there was no room in the inn, and keeping Him ever enshrined
therein by shunning sin and doing good works. Let us also make Him
happy in His other Self, the poor, by succoring them in their needs for the
sake of the poor "Infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a man-
ger." A Christmas barren of deeds of charity is unworthy of a follower of
that same Infant who later in His life spoke the words, "As long as you
did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me." Help His least
brethren and make Him your bounden debtor.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! This is The Echo's sincere
wish to all its contributors, subscribers, advertisers, friends and readers.
On this blessedl Christmas morn,
When our Saviour meek was born,
May He From His loving Heart
Choicest gifts to you imparty
And throughout the bright New Year
Grant you boundless grace and cheer!

THE. ECHO 9
and students of St. Augustine'sg and
the faculty and students of Central
Catholic High School.
The orchestra opened the program
with a series of selections, one of the
most popular being "Southern Melo-
dies." Patrick Wayne Donahue, pres-
ident of the Senior class, made a hit
with his address of welcome, the text
of which is given elsewhere in this
issue. Of the recitations, it would be
hard to say one was better than the
other, although it might be safely
said that Edmund Bresnahan's reci-
tation, "Mr, Dooley at the Football
Game," was the most enthusiastically
applauded. A distinct hit of the pro-
gram was made by Maurice Smith, as
a soloist of the Glee Club in the "Lit-
tle Red School House." The Glee
Club was at its best in the song, "I
Hate to Go Home Alone."
The most laughable number on the
program was "City and Country,"
featuring Patrick Donahue as a "City
Girl" and James Belot as a "Country
After the singing of the Victory
Song, the Right Reverend Bishop
gave a spirited talk, the substance of
which is given elsewhere in this issue.
The entertainment ended by Thom-
as McKiernan leading the school in
giving six hearty cheers for the

Address of Welcome
Right Reverend Bishop:
We welcome you to our midst, to
the midst of the boys whose earnest
desire of education has moved you to
overflowing generosity. On the one
hand we congratulate you on your
twenty-second anniversary as Bishop
of this great Diocese of Fort Wayne,
on the other hand we recall with love
and gratitude that this is the thir-
teenth anniversary of your founding
this school. We greet you with the
greatest love and esteem, because you
are not only our chief pastor, bishop,
and founder, but also our solicitous
father, replete with noble deeds and
elevating ideas. In your sacred per-
son we behold the spirit that advances
and leads, the spirit that gives us
courage and strength, the spirit that
does not forget the younger portion
of his flock, the spirit that has given
to the Catholic youths of Fort Wayne
a chance of receiving religious in-
struction as well as higher education.
Perhaps we do not sufficiently ap-
preciate nor realize our advantages
of receiving a good Catholic educa-
tion. You Right Reverend Bishop
have done your share and it is up to
us to take advantage of our oppor-
tunities. To our mind that school is
ideal which safeguards the morals of
