4 Foreword In September when Father Gerald Vann, O.P., the noted English author and theologian, spoke to us on the subject of a liberal education, he stressed the importance of the so-called "useless" subjects. Many times in modern education, Father said, the rush for grades and diplomas excludes from the school program those subjects which enrich our lives and give us many natural and supernatural rewards. A liberal education is not a training course which ultimately leads to accomplishment in a specific field, rather, it is a constant search for truth which, ideally, leads to God. Wisdom, which reveals the ultimate causes for all things, knowledge, which gives immediate causes for particular things, and art, which is the making well of that which is worthy of being made-all are necessary if our education is to be called liberal. Here at Dominican wisdom can come to us through our religion, ethics, and sociology classes, and by the example of our teachers, we begin to know and to appreciate God. Knowledge is part of our daily curriculum, for we study sciences and mathematics, languages and literature, history and current events. These academic subjects lead to partial under- standing of the universe in which we live and of our political, social, and cultural heritage, and its relationship to our present interests and problems. Art is the means by which we learn to use our hands as well as our minds. Classes in drawing and painting, weaving and sewing, music, drama, and the dance, give us the opportunity to develop our creative ability. Although a liberal education is not confined to our years in school, and certainly not to those in high school, it is during this time that we acquire the foundation necessary to continue the lifelong search for truth. As the whole is equal to the sum of its parts, so each individual year contributes to the high school career of a Dominican student. 1956-57 was no exception, for many specific events helped to broaden the scope of the liberal education of each girl in the student body. In October we participated in the annual Rosary Sunday Procession, as well as in Play Day, one of which brings us closer to God and the other closer to our neighbor. In November we were off by the busload to see a performance of Madame Butterfly, and in December we presented our own traditional Christmas Tableaux. During january the College Board Examinations and semester finals brought extra study. Drama and art classes presented Ofzdifze in March, and Lent reminded us to look ahead to the Feast of the Resurrection. April and May brought spring parties and also Retreat. May also means graduation and the end of the year, the end of four years for some. In V2'1'ita5 1957 we present a View of one year at Dominican, representative of our four year quest for a liberal education, the aim of which is, to quote Father Vann, . . to produce free, responsible, creative personalities, loving God and goodness and acting in accord with what they love." MARY JONES '57
