The Guardian Angel
N ALL TIMES of discouragement and temptation we should never fail or hesif
tate in asking our Guardian Angel for His help. This Angel was especially given
to us in order to protect us from harm and see to the salvation of our soul. He is
forever encouraging us that our aims he for the right and should we backslide or go
astray, our Angel is forever admonishing and interceding for us so that v:e may return
to the "straight and narrow path". Our duty toward this angel cannot be too greatly
stressed and since we have received him for our own good we should never fail to ask
for assistance or thank him for his aid. A minute or two spent in prayer each day to
our Guardian Angel will never be regretted and we will be the better for it.
-George E. Fischer, '28
, RIENDSHIP is a jewel whose luster the strong acids of poverty and misfortune
cannot dim. It is a jewel that shines brightest in the darkness. True friendship
penetrates below the surface. A friend is the first person to come in when the
world has gone out. He never forsakes us in time of need and is always in reserve
when needed most. He can be depended upon in misfortune and turned to in pleasure.
As the saying goes: "Make new friends but keep the old, these are silver, those
are gold". Even though your friendship may be interrupted, love lives on, and you can
always renew it. One should never despise a person whom he once thought worthy of
"It is a good thing to be rich, and a good thing to be strong, but it is a better
thing to be beloved by many friends," says Emerson.

person and they have been chided by their ideal, their feelings are sorely bruisedg
whereas had they been spoken to kindly, they would treasure these words perhaps for
many months. While bestowing happiness upon others we are also building up a
treasure for ourselves, which will await us in the next world.
W - Elizabeth Figge
APPIN ESS, that precious jewel, like a diamond, displays its beauty and casts
its radiance everywhere in lucid hues, though sable clouds have clothed them
with their garments.
Happiness, as it were, is the beacon light of life which does not only reflect its
light from those who have been blooming with that priceless gift called success, but
many times you will see that jewel displayed oftener by those who have been combat'
ing the everlasting problems of life and have locked in some secret channel the grim
shadow of misfortune. g
Happiness is not a diilicult ornament to attain, for contentment is the channel
to happiness. -
-Amanda Hbfman, '28
The Value of a Smile
HE INESTIMABLE value of a smile is best judged by its pleasing effect. To
some, an amicable face expression is a gift, but others must acquire this, in
order to esteem its worth. Smiles spread sunshine and make many friends,
whereas frowns cast a gloom and sometimes cause enmity, so why not smile? Does
it not often occur, in meeting someone that the first expression is quite impressive?
And from this we consider whether or not we care to become intimately acquainted.
A person with a smile usually has a sweet disposition. A possessor of one is
usually a possessor of both. With a background of happiness and contentment, it is
no great diihculty to smile, but the hero is he who smiles despite the trials that he
We mayconclude that smiles are invaluable when we observe that the people
who seem to "get along" in the world have that magnetic smile.

She was just a child
Not far in her years
Yet she knew her prayers
As to us it appears.
She quietly knelt
At the side of her bed
And slowly she bowed
Her small, curly head.
Mother was near
It was she who has told
What this little one prayed
Not yet four years old.
"Dear Jesus, do come,
To bed with me now,
Before You I kneel
And my head I do bow.
Oh, come, dearest Jesus!
l'se ever your girl,
Do number me, Jesus,
As Your little pearl.
If You were with me
I'd certainly play
And if You were near
To You I would say:
'Now You sit here, jesus,
And drink of my tea,
Come, do sit down, jesus,
And eat here with me.'
l'se ever Your pal
And You're ever mine,
So brightly in heaven
Upon me You shine."

Since the day that she prayed,
Never more from her Jesus
E'en once has she strayed.

Value of Education
N LARGE communities the cause of education has never failed to hold a very
high place. The people in their daily life give their first thought to religious
worship, but in the affairs of government, eduration has come to be predomif
nant. The importance attached to it is signified by the large proportion of money
which is devoted to its support.
In the country at large, it is probable that threeffifths of all local taxes are
expended directly or indirectly for education. We hear very little criticism of the
amount of money that is used for this purpose, but it is undoubtedly well from time
to time to make a careful investigation of this very large item, not so much to at'
tempt to reduce it as to make certain that all wants are eliminated and that the comf
munity is securing full value in return for its large outlays.
No progressive community can afford to neglect the education of its people.
Considered on the basis of economics, their development depends very largely on their
scientific learning and skill with which the efforts are directed. It is impossible for
any community to hold its place in modern society unless it is fully equipped in the
educational field of arts and sciences and researches. p
There has been a longfstanding controversy over the question of what constitutes
an institution of learning, especially a college. Some contend it is the trustees, others
the faculty, still others the student body. But there is yet another element which
has come to be all important in modern scholarship. That is the library. Wliile the
teacher is the instrumentality and directing force, to a very large extent, for the
training of youths and the diffusion of knowledge, books are, after all, the repository
of learning. Without them the wide scope of scholarship would, of course, be entirely
impossible, and no college would feel itself adequately equipped for the best service
which was not provided with a well chosen and extensive library.
Books not only contain the priceless records of the past, but they are, to a large
extent, the hope of the future. By means of them we have revealed to us the inf
ventions and discoveries of science, the beauties of poetry and the imperishable
thoughts of the mastermind of all ages. A liberal education may begin in the class
room, but it will scarcely rise above the ordinary, unless it is extended into the library
and by that means broaden into the practical experience of life.
Let us take Abraham Lincoln for example. It is well known that in his early life
he had little opportunity to come in contact with books. While it is true that there
is a very large field of education that lies entirely outside of books, yet books are the
foundation of all education. It is said that Lincoln walked many miles to borrow a
book, and the few which he had, he studied until he mastered them. No one could
have become the great master of English that he was, the author of the Gettysburg
Address, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Second Inaugural Address, without
a profound acquaintance with books.
There is yet another element which must, by all means, be considered when
speaking of our present day education and that is Religion. The idea of giving ref
ligion a more prominent place in the curriculum has been emphatically expressed by the

leading man of the United States of America, President Calvin Coolidge, when he
said: "Unless our halls of learning are real temples which are to be approached by
our youths in an attitude of reverence, consecrated by worship of the truth, they will
end in a delusion. The information that is acquired in them will simply provide a
greater capacity for evil. Our institutions for learning must be dedicated to a higher
purpose. The life of our nation must rise to a higher realm.
"There is something more in learning and something more in life than a mere
knowledge of science, a mere striving for place and power. Our schools and colleges
will fail in duty to their students unless they are able to inspire in them a broader
understanding of the spiritual meaning of science, of literature and of the arts.
"If our graduates are not inspired with these ideals, our educational institutions
have failed in their most important functions and the people will be lacking in true
culture. J ' K
"Unless our scholarship, however brilliant, is to be 'barren and sterile, leading
toward pessimism, more emphasis must be given to the development of our moral
power. Our colleges must teach not only science but character. We must maintain
a stronger, firmer grasp on the principles declared in the Psalms -of David and re-
echoed in the Proverbs of Solomon, 'The fear of the Lord is the beginning of
knowledge."' p y ' ' ' '

She was a kitten small,
With fur so soft and fine
And every time she strayed away,
The mice had a jolly time.
, She often watched in quet of prey,
Or even a careless fly,
And many a victim met its doom,
When detected by her eye.
One morning after running about,
And nearly out of breath,
A cruel car ran over puss,
And so she met her death.

The Value of Prayer
N A COLD winter's night as the Blakes were sitting around the fire, they all
clamored for a story from their Uncle joe who was visiting them. "A story,"
he said, "why, certainly, but what kind do you want?" "Any kind," answered
Mary. "All right, here is one that impressed me considerably when I read it a few
"High up in the Alps, nestled among the mountains is the small village of Sharing.
Grand mountain peaks and beautiful lakes surround it making it always a picture of
beauty and magnicance. -One of the most prominent families in Sharing, the Bert'
rams, had arrived in this town twenty years previously. Richard Bertram, then a
young man, had been sent there with his wife and baby daughter, by a prominent
English concern, to make an agreement with the inhabitants to buy their art goods,
for which the village was famous. He became a great favorite and the people not only
sold him their collections but promised him all that they would make in the future.
'The company then established him there, and he soon became as one of the inhabitants.
"Two years had happily passed here when his wife suddenly took sick and before
she could be taken to a specialist, she died. Richard Bertram was inconsolable, and
grieved her loss constantly. From that time he was a changed man. He gave up the
practice of his religion, in which he had always been a devout and pious worshipper,
and shunned the companionship of his friends. He hired a housekeeper, to take care
of his small daughter and left everything in her hands. He bothered little with
anything or anyone, and became known as 'Old Man Bertram, the Crankf
"When Alice Bertram, the daughter, had grown to young womanhood she
married and became the mother of a small son, who was her chief companion, as her
husband spent a great part of his time away on business. Her father lived with her
also, but he paid little attention to her affairs unless to criticize them. Alice had
often tried to persuade him to return to his religion, but had only received a surly
answer or no answer at all.
"One day while james Holmes, Alice's husband, was absent and her father was
in one of his most cranky moods, the baby was taken sick and for almost a week
was in a raging fever. Then the sickness conquered the baby's feeble strength and
the 1nother's desperate efforts and killed the child. But Mrs. Holmes' sorrows were
not to end there for that same day she received word that her husband was killed in an
accident. For two days she was uncomprehending and could not seem to understand
the grief that had befallen her. Her father, although he gave her no sympathy,
silently watched her and wondered how she would bear this, her greatest sorrow.
She had always told him that by trusting in God and by being resigned to His Holy
Will, the trials and sorrows of life become lighter.
"The third day after these calamities had befallen Alice, she again took an active
part in her housework and found much time to pray to God for courage and strength.
In her prayers she always added a fervent petition for her father's conversion. One
day he told her that he had formerly thought she was talking from inexperience
when she told him to offer his sufferings to God, but now he was fully convinced
that she had spoken sincerely, for had she not gone through a similar struggle to

what his had been? But she triumphed over hardships and through them became
more kind and helpful toward others. He soon made his peace with God and they
again lived happily, loving each other more than ever. Soon the entire village
knew them as, 'Those Kind Bertrams' who always helped others to bear their suiferings.
"And now," finished Uncle jim, "you all see what prayers will do for a troubled
and heartbroken person." '

The Little Cottage
It was just a cottage
Hidden by some vines,
Whose owner, it was said,
Worked down in the mines.
The occupants were six,
The kind parents and four
Hearty little children
Who played at the door.
One day while in their glee,
Along came a car,
One little dear was struck
And hurled very far.
The doctor soon was called,
No faint hope was given,
Her earthly hours were spent,
She belonged to Heaven.
For the grim reaper, Death,
Had journeyed round that way
And snatched one little life
Ere the close of day.
That cottage now has changed,
Once so gay and bright,
For one they held most dear,
Has vanished from their sight.

jj i! APPINESS IS one of the most essential things in our life. It is necessary
both for our own pleasure and the enjoyment of others, for a bright face and
a cheerful word spreads as sunshine to the world in general. A smile inf
creases a thousand fold. We should, therefore, not go about with every indication
that we are at odds with the world for it will do us no good.
Be not like those who care for their own pleasure at the expense of others. "Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you," is an old saying and it is the key'
note to true happiness and the abolition of enmity. It cannot but be so for we nat'
urally expect great things of ourselves. Try to make others happy and even if you
don't succeed, you may make yourself cheerful in trying to do so.
There are men in the world today who make a business of making people happy.
The professional jokesmith, the writer of comic stories, the cartoonist, and others
contribute their share. If their works are of the right sort they will surely gain a great
reward. The person with a smile on his face is the optimist. The one with the
frown is the pessimist, The only exception is when in the dentist's chair.
The pages in the writings of Irving often sparkle with wit and undoubtedly asf
sist in their popularity.
Charles Dickens used humor quite often at times,,and we seldom pick up a
magazine or periodical today that does not have its share of laughfprovoking para'
graphs to assist in its popularity. Thomas Hood, the great writer who devoted his
life to humor, nearly always revealed the bright and sunny side of life. He is pracf
tically world renowned.
In our endeavor to promote happiness and good cheer we should keep in mind
that words spoken in a light manner to a person may be taken seriously and cause
disappointment. Finding fault, even with a friend, may lead to his becoming dis-
couraged and only serve to quicken his failure. Words spoken in matters of religion
should be carefully chosen for, religion is a deep and divine subject of veneration and
is not to be treated lightly. Words should be weighed before speaking and the
appropriate ones used with care. They should not cause suffering or pain to the
person referred to for, if we excuse ourselves a score of times the fact remains that
we had been too rash. In short, our very words, actions and manner should serve to
promote good will toward our fellow men.
In conclusion, it can be said that happiness is needed if we are to get any where
in life. It would be well to remember the words of Franklin:
"Money never yet made a man happy, and there is nothing in its nature to prof
duce happiness. One's personal enjoyment is a very small thing, but one's personal
usefulness is a very important thing."

GIF ITTLE THINGS lead to perfection and perfection is no little thing." Little
things are the every day occurrences and acts which we perform. If these are
done faithfully day in and day out, we will soon reach the goal of perfection,
which we must all strive to attain.
"As a man falls little by little from small sins into great sins, so from small
virtues he attains, by degrees, sublime virtues," says St. Isidore. We can derive
much beneit from this saying. It shows how many small sins gradually lead to great
ones and thus cause man to fall.
One saying explains another and the one, "It makes no matter whether a ship be
sent to the bottom by one great wave, or whether the water, entering by chinks, sinks
the vessel gradually," quoted by St. Augustine, clearly points out these facts. It is
plainly seen that we all must start with little things and at the bottom, in order to reach
'he bop which holds the Greatest Treasure.
These ideas pertain to things in the temporal and physical world as well as the
spiritual, for little by little all things are accomplished. If we have a little ache or pain
and carelessly neglect it, it may in time cause great trouble, and the same with evils.
If we do not overcome our small failings and faults they must and will lead to great
sins. It is God's way to give much for a little. Our Lord does not attend to how
much we give but to the generosity of our will, and for this reason Heimakes much
of a little.

llfllow The Soldier Lost lkllis Arm
N A FINE warm day in the early spring of 1917, two young gentlemen, Dick
Smith and Mickey Murphy, walked slowly down Broadway in New York City.
They were busily engaged in giving their opinions regarding the overthrow
of the Russian Government and the murder of the Gzar's family. As they passed
the great court house the huge bell began tolling loudly, the echoes of which rolled
far into the noise and din of the busy city. At the same time many other bells sent
their chiming notes upon their errand of announcement and the factory sirens cast
their shrieking calls to the winds. As these unusual proceedings were under way,
Dick and Mickey hurried to the nearest street corner where the excited newsboy was
almost hoarse from crying, "Extra! Extra! All about the declaration of war with
Germany." Dick hastened to purchase a paper and then hurried toward the park.
After reading all about President Wilson's decision in regard to declaring war on
Germany, and noting also that the United States was already busy organizing
an army of one million to go to the front, he bade Mickey goodfbye and retraced
his steps homeward.
In a few moments he stood before his own home almost afraid to enter as he
knew that his father would certainly lecture him on what to do and 'what not to do
in this time of terror. However, he was very much surprised to see his father unusually
quiet and he concluded that the delayed lecture would be given that evening at dinner.
In this surmise he was correct. At dinner as his father sat speaking, Dick remained
quiet and attentive and made no move to interrupt until his father proposed putting
him to work in his factory. He, being the only child of the wealthy Smith family,
was never made to work and even the very word "Work" disgusted him. At this
suggestion he raised an unsteady hand and said, "Mickey and some of the other
fellows enlisted and, of course, I did too." This sudden and unexpected answer
enraged Mr. Smith so much that he resolved to disown his son. However, Dick calmly
retired to his room where he happily put together a few necessary clothes, took his
traveling bag and went downstairs. He bade his father goodfbye and left. Mr. Smith,
seeing that his son really was in earnest, repented and called after Dick, but the latter
heedless of the calls, kept on going until he reached a hotel where he spent the few
remaining days before the great ship sailed for Europe.
Three days later he, together with hundreds of others from the great city, boarded
a U. S. Army steamer for France. After spending some weeks in Paris, Dick, Mickey,
and thousands of other American men were given the order to move up. About
three months later our American soldiers encountered their first foes in the woods
and marshes about two hundred miles from Paris. There they were obliged to stand
off the many sharpshooters and machine gun experts of which the surrounding country
was full. That day the American forces suffered greatly. A few more days and the
anxious men found their way to the front. Here they spent many weary months
amid hunger and peril in the trenches and shell holes. In the last and final rush.
making their way through smoke and flying fragments of the huge missles, Dick and
Mickey made their way slowly creeping, to a nest of machine gunners. Being
sighted they were immediately stopped by the flying missles of the machine guns.
Dick suddenly felt a severe pain shoot through his arm and he knew that he could

My Chief Aim In Life
T IS SAID that one should have one particular aim in life, for without such an
aim success is quite impossible. In scholastic work the aim is to attain a good
percentage, in the problems of life, one aims for guidance which will direct him
through his diflicultiesg but the chief aim in one's life should be that which so many
do not seem to consider, namely, to please our Creator, the Lord and Master of all.
My chief aim in life is to reach the heavenly port by doing all things for the love
-of God. What other aim is more beneficial than this? I will persevere and work
with a good will and when disappointments beset my path, I will try not to murmur
but gladly receive them as blessings.
It is said, "Not failure, but low aim is crime." Therefore, if I do, at times, fail,
the Searcher of all hearts will know that my aim is high.
I 4Ama'ncla Hofman, '28
The clock ticks away the minutes slow,
As it watches the humming life below,
From year to year in its even way,
It watches antics both sad and gay,
Keeps silent about the things it sees, I
But sometimes indulges eccentricities,
Such as striking the hour of .six for eight,
Thus causing the students for class to be late.
On the whole, however, 'tis the student's friend,
And it marks each day from beginning to end,
It urges him on 'long his scholarly way,
And reminds him of duties each hour and day,
It gives him a lesson of calmness and peace,
As it steady moves on in patience and ease.
When the student looks up on its broad, beaming face,
He picks up new courage in life's arduous race.

A True Home
i ,COMPLETE HOME embraces a father, mother and one or more children,
bound to each other by natural love for each other. The initial step in home
building is taken when a man and woman decide to assume the responsibilities,
duties and functions of marriage. Courtship and marriage may be prompted by a
number of motives. But there is one natural and worthy motive - love.
A man and woman bound by true love for each other, may live in a shack or
humble cottage, they may have to toil late and hard to support a family of growing
children, but they and their children will be happy, bound together by mutual love.
They will remain true to each other through adversity, sickness and death.
If a husband and wife are not bound to each other by a natural love, though they
may hold in their possessions broad acres of land, railroad bonds and heavy deposits
in the bank, live in a mansion and move in the elite circles of society, they will never
possess true happiness.
The character of the home determines the character of the church, society and the
nation. The home is the most important of all earthly institutions. The problems of
society, the church and nation, if ever solved, must be largely solved in the home.
The home is both the civil and the divine institution. Civil and Divine Law place the
husband and father at the head of the home. No teacher sustains a more vital relaf
tion to society, no minister to his congregation, no king to his empire, or president
to his republic, than does the conscientious father, who does his best to build an ideal
home. He is truly serving God and his country, in the highest sense. In the work
of building a home, he is serving society and the church in a higher sense, than he
would be were he neglecting his family by writing books, teaching school, delivering
lectures and preaching sermons.
The father who will toil long and late, study and strive to support, educate and
train a family of children to become good citizens and devoted christians, will receive
a rich, reward here and a royal welcome beyond.
In the partnership of building a home, the wife is, in the truest sense, an equal
partner with her husband. Equal rights and privileges should characterize their
financial, social and moral relations. When .a woman has entered married life with
her husband, determined to make a real wife and mother, she has chosen one of the
highest and noblest positions possible for a woman. Her home will be an antefrcom

R. AND MRS. John Floremat went to a movie and left their house entirely
in charge of their twelvefyearfold boy, Jim. After an hour of their absence,
a rather heavily built old man rang the doorbell, and on answering, Jim was
seized and carried into the man's car which was already prepared for the kidnapping.
The auto was started, and after about an hour of steady driving over the forsaken
country roads, the car was halted and the ruiiian took Jim into a small hut about a
mile from the road. He put his victim down and after barring the door, went to hide
his car in the wilderness. A little later the brute returnedf told Jim to go to sleep,
and not try to get away. Jim had a firm heart, but at the thought of his good parents
he began to sob. He was so nervous that his night's rest was much disturbed.
The next morning was one of intense excitement in the neighborhood of the
Floremats. The police were notified and all the sympathizing neighbors began to scan
the city for the lost boy. Numerous clues were presented but none of them proved to
be true. Many people declared that they positively saw him, but when a search was
made the boy was not found. This excitement went on for about two weeks, during
which time Jim was put to hard work by his kidnapper, and if he rested but one
minute, he was struck with a heavy stick until he would resume his duty.
Such training as this was altogether against Jim's will and he went up to the
old man and said, "How long do I have to stay here yet?" This angered his brutal
master very much, and he remained silent for a few minutes, then he replied, "You
jist git ta work, ya scoundrel, and don' let me hear frum ya."
After a few more days of this forced labor, Jim planned to make an escape and
go home. From then on, he kept a keen watch for any possible means of getting
away. One night Jim thought that everything was safe and he got out of his hard
bed and walked towards the door, but in doing so he stumbled over a water bucket
which woke the old man and brought him to his feet in a furious manner. L'Git back
ta bed ya little critter, and don't ever try that agin," came from his lips as he grabbed
Jim and threw him into his bed. With this move, Jim knew that his chances of es-
caping were spoiled for a while, so he decided to wait before making another attempt.
It was now about five weeks since jim was taken from his home, and his parents
nearly abandoned all hope of ever finding their lost son. The police, too, gave up all
hope, but promised to take care not to overlook any one bearing the description of
In the meantime Jam made a few minor attempts to break away but when he
found that his new master watched him so closely he thought it was better to be
patient and then to plan a good getfaway. One night the moon was shining much
more brightly than before, and Jim thought that this would enable him to find his
way through the dense woods to the road. Jim's kidnapper, on retiring that evening,
remarked that he was very tired. This also made Jim feel more sure of making
About midnight Jim awoke, very quietly dressed himself and went over to a
window which he had fixed during the day, so that he could just quietly open it. He

crawled through, again pulled it down behind him, and started to walk up the def
serted path which he was positive would lead him to the road.
After twenty minutes of brisk walking he saw a sort of clearing and on ap'
proaching more closely he found that it really was the road. He then said a prayer
of thanksgiving for being led this far, and continued to pray for a safe journey home.
For about an hour he ran steadily and suddenly he spied a street light, which was one
in the suburbs of his home town. Now he went faster than ever, knowing that he
would soon reach home.
He hardly recognized his own street, after seeing nothing but wilderness since
his forced departure. Arriving at his house, he tried the door, but seeing that it was
locked, he rang the doorbell. No one responded so he rang again, then he heard some
one coming down the stairway. When the door was swung open jim and his father
stood face to face after a long absence. All was silent for a few minutes, after which
Mr. Floremat uttered, "Jim, God bless you, how on earth did you get here? We
thought that you were dead!" Jim then related his adventure to his father, and after'
ward went upstairs to see his mother, who burst into tears for joy when she saw her
lost son had returned.
The next day jim and his dad hired two policemen and drove to the place
where the kidnapper was living and arrested him. He was given a two years' sentence
in jail for his inhuman action. Jim told his story to all his friends, who admired him
for his perseverance. He was afterwards called the "Persevering Lad."

I'd like to write a lovely poem,
'Bout mountain pointing to the sky,
The birds and bees, the flowers and trees,
Of how the mournful breezes sigh -
But alas! I am no poet.
I'd like to paint a gorgeous scene
Of nature's works sublime,
Of golden sunsets, peaceful woods,
But inspirations are not mine --
For alas! I am no artist.
I'd like to be a writer of fame,
How wonderful that would be,
Our Year Book I'd immortalize
With gems 'twere good to see --
But alas! I'm only Arthur.

My eyes were heavy yet with sleep,
I thought that dawn was still far off,
And I rolled over to complete
My rest, when startled by a cough.
More noises from below I heard,
A commanding voice ere long called out:
"Get up, my son, and hurry, too!"
'Twas time to rise, 'I could not doubt
Oh, for just one more hour's sleep!
I turned again, still in a drowse,
Ideas of school then came to me,
No pleasure could that thought arouse.
Oh! life seemed drear indeed that morn,
And naught it gave as recompense,
For the task of getting out of bed
To do my work, all seemed nonsense.
Then with a little thrill of joy
There came from the kitchen a sweet aroma
Which filled me with an arduous zeal
To give that cook a ine diploma.
Then out of bed, in one glad leap,
Life's aspect changed without mistake,
Ambition was restored to me,
' What beats a-.dish of hot pancakes?

HE PRCVERB, "Theres no royal road to learning," has been clearly proved
1 by this ever eager and evei ready Class of 28. As the true meaning of this
proverb is that no one, not even a. king, can buy knowledge and learning,
but must work with a will for it, thus we have gone through many trials and troubles,
and, as a result, we have at length reached Commencement Day. But, even though
we now finish our school life and work, in reality, we are only commencing our life's
struggles and hardships. No one could ind a better name than Commencement for
this day in the world's largest dictionary.
Although we were not all in the same class at the beginning of our school career,
yet we all know that we have tried to be obedient and attentive. Cft times we were
rather mischievous, but, as this is the nature of all school boys and girls, we know
we have by this time been forgiven by our dear teachers. At the close of the eighth
vear, we were all initiated into High School, by our predecessors in general. They
performed all possible mischievous stunts, and we, as true sports will do, took all with'
out a murmur, but at the end of all this, they served us a delicious banquet which inf
fluenced us to readily forgive them the somewhat cruel pranks they made us endure.
In the Freshman year, we went through many long hours of work and study,
with the view of soon being Sophomores. At the beginning of the Sophomore year,
the High School pupils of the Sacred Heart School were introduced into the great
Central High School. At first it was quite difficult for them to become accustomed
to their new home but this strange feeling gradually wore off and now all feel very
much at home.
At last we were called Juniors, the title we so long desired. This year, we had a
few more books and studies given us, but, "Where there is a will there is a way," so
we mastered all hardships and difficulties by putting a firm shoulder to the wheel.

It was in this year that we were hostesses at a luncheon given in honor of the Seniors
of '27. As no complaint was made against it, we deem it an honor to be capable of
serving such a luncheon. Also, in this year, we received our Class Rings, so eagerly
looked forward to.
All passed the Junior exams, and after our summer vacation, we entered the
Senior room. It is with this writing that we are the faithful and diligent Seniors
of the Class of 1928, and at the close of this year we truly hope to enter the wide,
bold world, as good, reliable members of the community.

Autumn really is the season,
When the boys from every section

To receive minute direction.
Winter brings Exams so heavy,
Puzzling some of us, 'tis true,
Testing all without exception
So we'll have a broader view.
Spring then dawns with all its glory,
Oh! it makes those light and irm,
Who can give a goodly reason
That it is their last school term.

ll-llistory of Uur Class
l ROBABLY THE first great turn in the course of nearly every one's life is the
turn from babyhood to the schoolfboy age. He then puts away the childish
whims of the fourfyearfold, and dons the dignity and manliness of the school'
boy. When this important day dawned for what is now the Class of '28, we formed
what was probably as large a class of beginners as ever entered school, for on the
first day ninetyfsix children put in their appearance in the St. Marys school, while
with the Sacred Heart school we boasted an enrollment of about one 'hundred and
I can still see the childish pranks played by some among the boys, a few enjoy-
ing the fun, others suffering itg some were running about the room, while others stood
in one or the other corner and poured out most pitiful and distressing lamentations
over the hard life they saw before them. No "Mamma," no home, no fun, strange
faces+reason enough to lament. But somehow the teacher succeeded in drying
those tears and arousing interest, even among the most timid, and school work began.
After all, it was not so hard, and we had "lots of fun" trying to climb word ladders
to catch a bird on the tree, or fall down when part way upg crossing streams on
stepping stones or tumbling ing and performing other "stunts" over the words or num'
bers Sister tried to teach in her own playful way.
As soon as we were somewhat settled in school we were all enrolled in the Holy
Childhood Society, which obliged us to give at least one cent a month, or twelve cents
a year, towards the redemption of Heathen children. Although it was rather difficult
at first to give up our spending money to this cause instead of buying candy, or
marbles, or the like, we succeeded in giving even a great deal more than was necessary
after we understood the greatness of the cause.
The Sisters taught us early to gather all the tinfoil we could get, as well as used
postage stamps, for the missionaries, to help them along in their praiseworthy cause
of saving abandoned babies in the Far East. A
During the first few weeks we were hard at work learning words by sight. Later
came the alphabet. To remember this more easily we were taught to sing the letters,
and did it with such gusto that on a warm day when the windows were open, the
residents on Maurus and Benedict Streets, a whole block away, could hear the sing'
song, singfsong, issuing from that memorable first grade room.
After learning the ABC's and a few simple numbers, we began spelling, and
working little problems. Not many months later, we took our first grade examinaf
tion, and then were promoted to the second grade. I am sure we were the happiest,
proudest boys in the whole world.
At last vacation came. It was only then that we could realize what vacation
meant. For nine months we had trotted to school on the same road, studied all day,
and in the evening had been helped on a lesson or two by our parents, or older brothers
or sisters for the next day. But now we were free, no more school, no study, only
play and perhaps a little work now and then. However, at the end of the three
months most of us were glad to get back to school and resume our studies.

In the second year many of us made our first Confession and Communion, which
was, undoubtedly, the happiest event of our school year.
Throughout the next few grades many different subjects were added to the
daily routine. We had history, grammar, advanced readers, arithmetic, geography,
spelling and so on, and with the passing of years we became more and more encumf
bered with books, heavy both in weight and in subject matter.
As the years rolled on not all of our boyish pranks left us, in fact, new and
brighter ones interested us. How often, as our strength developed, did we not start
a friendly "scrap" with one or the other, which usually ended in a bloody nose, and,
some "unmanly" tears?
Still worse, it seldom happened that this was the end of trouble, for this really
only started when the aggressors got into the hands of the teacher. It need not be
told what happened in such a case, as nearly everybody is familiar with the consef
When in the seventh grade, on one of those dry Autumn days when forest ires
are prevalent, we were out for recess, and noticing a cloud of smoke rising from behind
the hill back of the school grounds, we clearly saw that there was a fire in that di'
rection, and wondered whether the firemen were in need of helpers. Feeling quite
selffconf1dent that we could render valuable service practically our whole class def
clared themselves volunteers and began to march toward the scene of action without
telling any of our superiors. The Ere happened to be miles away, near the rocks
toward Johnsonburgg but, never faltering, we kept walking till we arrived at the
desired destination. Soon finding ourselves of no use, but rather in the way of the
firefighters, we decided it were better to return to school, but failed to get there any
more that day. What happened the next day when we put in our appearance need
not be spoken of here, we will leave this to the surmise of the readers.
Having passed the seventh grade successfully and enjoyed the summer vacation
following, we returned to school anxious to complete the eighth grade work with
credit, for beyond that looms the High School with its honors and graduation.
During this year the school held a competition sale, the proceeds of which were
to go towards the new High School, which was being built that year, and from which
we were destined to graduate. We had the largest stock, and consequently, the largest
trade. On our list was ice cream, soft drinks, bought, and homefmade candy, cookies,
and many other confections, together with a large amount of useful articles. Every
room had devised a special plan for conducting the sale. Stands were erected on all
parts of the playground, laden with the various commodities, and the inviting appear'
ancewhich these presented attracted people from all around the neighborhood, inf
cluding many adults. This, of course, added much to our success. Every room had
complete success, but we won the competition, entailing the neat sum of seventyffive
Vacation rolled by once more, but we said goodfbye forever to the memorable
school up on the hill and took up our new place of study in the Gymnasium. Every'
thing donned a different aspect. The surroundings were no longer familiar, the school
sessions were changed, the playground was missing, nay, even our previous studies were
left in memory, and we devoted our time to more complicatd and diflicult subjects,
such as Algebra, Latin, Science, Bookkeeping and Ancient History. We now realized

The Flag and The Nation
VERY NATION has some flag or banner to distinguish it from others. The
flag of the United States is a symbol, as it were, of the freedom and indef
. pendence that we are so justly proud of. The citizens of every nation treat
their flag with love and respect and would take it as an insult to have that emblem
abused or slandered by any foreigner. The people of the United States are no exception
to- this rule. In war, "Old Glory" is defended in every heroic way possible and
thousands flock under the national colors. In all parts of the world the stars and stripes
are recognized. ,
We are told that Betsy Ross, at the request of George Washington, made the
first flag. For this work her name is known to every school boy. This first flag was
displayed over the commander's headquarters. The stars and stripes were first carried
in the Battle of Brandywine, and the first salute rendered the banner was when the
Ranger, an American vessel under the command of John Paul Jones, displaying the
colors of the Union received a salute from a French commander when entering a
French harbor. The Star Spangled Banner, our national anthem, was written by
Francis Scott Key. Its inspiring Words and meaning make it especially significant to
our people and when it is played it always commands respect. As a fitting tribute to
the composer, the National Flag flies at all times, day and night, over his grave. , ,,
The original flag changed from time to time, especially during the early days of
the republic, but finally it took the form in which we see it tofday-composed of
thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, while in the upper right hand corner are
fortyfeight white stars in a blue Held. The stripes represent the thirteen original states
that so bravely fought for independence, while the stars represent each of the states
in the union. The second star in the Hrst row, leading from right to left, represents
our own state, Pennsylvania, the second to ratify the constitution. The last star in the
flag stands for Arizona. i
The National Flag should by no means be desecrated, yet many times abuses,
perhaps unintentionally, are given to it. We sometimes End its design used for towels,
napkins, paper hats, toys and cheap novelties. There is a national law against abuse
of the flag, but it covers only certain points. We should consider it an honorable
duty to see that the flag is given real respect.

The Gray For Peace
At the camp now all was stillg
Faintly murmured the neighboring rillg
The thud of marching feet had ceasedg
And now in the silence lay man and beast.
Some few lay dreaming of the morrow,
What it may bring of joy and sorrow,
And what the outcome of this strife
That asks so many a soldier's life.
The sentry pacing to and fro
Dared not his vigilance forego
Lest cruel enemies entrap
Those men now deep in slumber wrapped.
But hark! The bugle! The sleepers stirg
All life where peace and quiet wereg
Quick orders are given, and prompt all obey
None would attempt those commands to gainsay.
The pilot is ready at his controlsg
And men are relieved of their patrols.
Aeroplanes soar out and up through the air
To search for the enemy in his lair.
Loud the propellers of the planes are whirring,
The motor sends back its ceaseless purringg
The wind through the struts is fiercely shrieking,
While below the machine guns of death are speaking.
The bombers are ready with their awful might,
It takes staunch hearts for the gruesome sight
When down 'mong the living drop the deathfdealing bombs,
That send men in fragments to unknown tombs.
An eye like an eagle's now pierces the sky
To search out the spectre that hovered so nighg
But gone in his terror is the deathfdealing fiendg
Only moans of the dying are borne by the wind.
And the terrors of the living hear the dirge of the dead,
As the souls of their comrades from their clayfhouse have fled
Then in silence they kneel on the bloodfdrenched sod,
While their hearts cry for mercy to an outraged God.
That in pity He sent down His angel of peace,
Bidding Demons this bloodshed and carnage to cease.
That their AllfFather, God, take His children once more
Home to their loved ones from that bloodfreeking shore.

The Diary of a Dog
CTOBER 29 - Dear Diary: I suppose you have been wondering why I have
not written you of late, telling you my tales of woe or joy and the events of
the past few days. The reason for this is my master has been doing queer
things with me of late, and I have lain awake long into the night wondering over
these strange happenings. It was on the twentieth of the month that he took me
down the street with him, bought a little fluffy thing that he called a rabbit and led
me to the woods. Here he urged me to chase the thing about, and seemed pleased
when, in time, I could follow it quite well by smell alone. A few days later he left
the thing at home, took me deeper into the woods and made me trail a new kind of
rabbit which, by the way, could run much faster than the former. In the meantime,
when not in the field, he kept making a noise near my kennel that increased in volume
from day to day. I thought he was going crazy but a dog friend of mine informed
me that he does not want me to be gun shy. As for me, I never was afraid of noise.
November 1-I have had an exciting day. My master fed me before day-
break and just at dawn when he visited me he was a sight noble to behold. He wore
boots, khaki clothing, with a splotch of red on the back of his coat, a vest full of
shells and he carried a shotgun. He patted Ame on the head and we started for the
woods. I started trailing a rabbit, making hound music as I grew closer and, when
the rabbit made a nice circle my master shot him when he came near. We got four
rabbits that morning and the master was well satisfied with my work. I got a delicious
bone for supper that evening.
November 7 - Excuse the delay in writing. I have spent a wonderful week and
could not find time to write all that happened. On the whole, however, I have stayed
close to my kennel dreaming of feasts fit for kings. Almost every evening the master
and I go to the woods and generally get a rabbit or two. The master must like the
meat, I like the chase.
November 10-I have learned to tree raccoons -H much to my sorrow. Last
evening after dark, the master led me to his old Flivver and we had a long ride into
the country. As soon as we reached a farmhouse we were joined by a friend of the
master and his dog. The dog was much more powerful than I and we became great
pals. I'd hate to have him for an enemy. We went into the woods and began trailing
some new animals. I didn't know much about it but was soon to learn. We chased
it until it went up a tree. One thing about rabbits, they stay on or in the ground but
'coons are the limit. When we treed the 'coon we barked in a different tone and the
hunters came over. Both had carbide lamps. My master located the 'coon's eyes
and shot. The 'coon fell near me, but it was far from dead as I learned when I took
a hold of it. We had quite a tussle and I was getting the worst of the fight when
my pal came to the rescue. He soon finished that 'coon. I will probably be on the
sick list for a few days. I'd much rather hunt rabbits. I'm leading a dog's life.

T IS THE YEAR 1943. Having achieved considerable recognition in the literary
world and being well off financially, I am comfortably situated in my country
villa some twenty miles from the noise and bustle of the thrifty city of St. Marys.
This morning, in the mail, I received my annual copy of the Catholic High School
Memo, Class of '43, After spending some time in leaflng through the pages, admiring
with satisfaction the work of this latest class, my eye happened to run across the
Alumni Section, a part of the book that I always took great pleasure in reading first.
Immediately upon perceiving this favored division my thoughts traveled back over
fifteen eventful years to boyhood days, during which I had daily been associated with
some of the persons whose names appeared therein. Then I started to pick them out,
there was DeVere Brehm, one of the first of hundreds of names, his address was given
as Rio de Janerio, Brazil, Vincent Cheatle, London, England, Paul Bauer, Stanley
Falls, Belgian Congo, and so they went. But few of the Class of '28'were residing at
present in the United States. It was no wonder that I began to feel lonesome, separated
as I was by so many miles from these former school mates.
Believing a nice long trip would do me good in every way, I resolved to visit
these old chums who were scattered all over the world like seeds before the wind.
A week later, armed with the latest Memo, as well as the one of '28, I boarded the'
Shawmut Air Express, New York bound, to pay a visit to Arthur Kronenwetter. It
took but a few hours to finish the first lap of my roundfthefworld trip, and after
some time spent in paging the city directory, I found that Arthur was living in the
exclusive residential section. It was not long until I was ringing the bell of a massive
door and after handing the butler my card was soon face to face with this companion
of boyhood days. We certainly were glad to see each other and we 'spent a wonderful
evening relating the incidents of school life and the success each had obtained in the
world. The years had wrought little change in "Arts" appearance, but he did look
a bit unfamiliar in his costly attire which he had to wear because of his high place in
society. As every one knows, he is the sole owner of the Arthur E. Kronenwetter
Stores, headquarters in New York City, and branches in all of the principal cities of the
world. When he heard of my plan to visit all of the former classmates he was
tempted to go along, but business, at present, required that he be at hand in the
States. I visited with Arthur for several days and on one occasion he conducted
me through his New York store.' It is of the sky scraper variety and everything is
sold from tooth picks and ninetyfeight cent bargains to pianos and tenfthousand dollar
fur coats. After sincerely thanking Mr. Kronenwetter for the kindness and hospif
tality he had shown me on my visit, I was off for London.
The trip to England was made without incident as the TransfAtlantic Aeroplane
System is very safe. In this historic city I met none other than Vincent Cheatle,
Esquire. Remember what an aid Vincent used to be when we wanted to know the
meaning of difficult words? Well, today this same friend is a lexicographer of author'
ity and is at present employed with a fabulous sum by joint American and British
interests in revising the dictionary. He and his family live in a great English rcsif
dence that resembles a castle in size, and several times while walking through the
magnificant corridors I almost became lost. Mr. Cheatle introduced me to the king,
..----it A if ii i' lv- g, aa
fl- ' i!Ig,,1 , s

who, as you know, was the gentleman who so often fell off his horse before he sucf
ceeded to the throne. We visited both houses of Parliamentand spent some time in
touring England, Ireland and the land where savings banks predominate.
Vincent accompanied me to Paris, making the trip by means of the Under Channel
Subway, one of the wonders of the world. Because of my friend's familiarity we had
no difliculty in locating Monsieur Gervase Wortman. Gervase, whose drawings
helped to make the Year Book of '28 such an outstanding success, is now an artist
of renown. His studio is located not far from the Champs Elysees, one of the most
beautiful streets in the world, and his paintings adorn the walls of famous art mu'
seums. He wanted. me to sitfor my portrait, I firmly but politely refused, but Ger-
vase understood. We had a wonderful time in France visiting spots of attraction.
There was the Eiffel Tower, the Church of Notre Dame, splendid works of archi-
tecture and we even strolled about Monte Carlo a bit, but we didn't try to break up
the bank. In the French restaurants we could order real American food with the
aid of "Wortman," and get what we wanted the firsttime. I forgot to mention that
Gervase sports a trick mustache, clothes himself immaculately and is as polite as any
Frenchman you ever saw. It was with regret that after wishing Gervase the best
of luck in regard to his career and urging Vincent to hurry along with the dictionary
that I bade them adieu and left by rail for Germany to visit John Neubert.
In this, one of the world powers, our friend John is a wealthy man. He made
his fortune in the meat business in Chicago without weighing his hand once, after
which he went to Germany, where he has settled down in the land of his forefathers.
He was full of questions regarding the States, St. Marys, and the old school, it took
me the better part of the day to satisfy his curiosity. Together we visited the art
galleries, the Reichstag, music halls, universities, and museums in and about Berlin.
John was full of praise for the country but he assured me that he would some day
return to the States for a visit and perhaps to stay. "Neubert" is well respected in
Germany. He is often consulted in matters pertaining to America and I must not
omit to say that he is the President of the German Butchers' Union.
My next stop was at Rome, when I ran across Joseph Thiel, in a most extra'
ordinary way. After my trip from Berlin I resolved to wait until the next day before
looking up my chum who for some months had beeen in Rome trying to secure the
payment of a national debt. I put up at the cleanest hotel I could find, picked out
the best vacant room and proceeded to read a book while resting comfortably in an
overhanging balcony. I had scarcely become engrossed in the pages when there was
a confusion in the streets, crowds gathered and a servant rushed Vout to me and inf
formed me that I would have to take off my hat and act dignified, for the King of
Italy would soon pass in parade. I complied with his urgent request and in a few
minutes, amid the noise of the band, escorted by a unit of cavalry, rode Joseph Thiel
beside the King of Italy. I forgot my manners and rushed down the steps to greet
this old schoolmate, but a policeman stopped me before I reached the street. He
thought I intended to assassinate the King, so he escorted me to headquarters, where
after several hours of explaining I was released, but knew it would be useless to find
my friend that day. When I did find him we had a good laugh at my expense. Joseph
had taken part in the parade at the king's request for that gentleman imagined that
he had ,come out best in the debt matter. "Thiel" piloted me about the city of Rome

and showed me the spots of interest, and there are hundreds of them, as you well
know. Only one thing marred our little tour and that was the failure to secure an
interview with the Pope. joseph is the same good natured soul who made one forget
his worries and as regards his part as a foreign diplomat he has but few equals.
I left by air for Cairo, Egypt, and after reaching that city boarded a stuffy rail'
way car and after a weary journey reached Stanley Falls, Belgian Congo, where I
was to meet Professor Paul Bauer who was employed by a historic society of Brussels,
to explore some parts of Africa, not yet so well known. Paul does quite a bit of
hunting-with the camera. The Professor does not believe in killing wild game as
some species have already become quite rare and he is a firm believer in conservation. I
had some difficulty in locating "Bauer," as he was on a trip into the interior. When I
did find him, however, he was quite difficult to recognize. He was clad in light out'
door clothing, with a sort of helmet perched on his head to protect him from the direct
rays of the sun. He wore a pair of sun glasses and his face was covered with a beard of
some weeks' growth. The beard did not feel comfortable but, as absentfminded Prof
fessors are apt to do, he had forgotten his razor. I lent him mine. I really could not
stay with Paul as long as I would have liked, for I was unaccustomed to the terrific
hot weather. However, after the few days I was with him, we spent some time
discussing the good old days and I gave my friend full details of my trip so far
My journey to India cannot exactly be called comfortable as it was made largely
by water and I was thankful when I arrived at Calcutta. From that city I proceeded
by air to Delhi, the capital. where John L. Heindel was located as ambassador to India.
John's political career has been a colorful one. He has served his country in every
capacity from a small town tax collector to United States Senator from Pennsylvania.
It was while biding his time to add further flowers to his political bouquet, as well as
upon the advice of his doctor who recommended a change of climate, that john ac'
cepted the position as chief ambassador to India, now an independent republic. John
showed me all about this oriental city. We made part of the trip in his luxurious
automobile, and in order to add novelty to the occasion and show me a good time, he
borrowed the President's mammoth pet elephant and we saw the city in style. After
securing john's promise to visit me as soon as he returns to the States I undertook to
meet Commander William Schlimm at HongfKong.
The Chinese had again caused trouble in that section, causing riots and attacking
American citizens. "Will" was commander of the detachment of marines, a position
that he holds splendidly. 'His headquarters were in one of the battleships in the
harbor and I had no trouble in locating him. He looked an officer from head to foot,
attired as he was in the full regalia of his office. He admitted me to the great secret as
to how he kept the creases in his trousers - he pressed them daily. He informed me
that he had the situation well in hand but would have to remain in Chinese waters
for some time yet, till he would receive orders from Washington to move. William
is an authority on matters relating to the military side of government and gossip has
it that he may be appointed Secretary of War to succeed the present ofiice holder, a
position that he could well occupy.
Luck was with me, for I obtained permission to fly from HongfKong to Sydney,
Australia, with a government pilot who was to make the trip. Here in this important

city, located in the smallest continent, I found William Bebble practicing as an M. D.
As a man of medicine, William holds undisputed sway in that country, his discoveries
in Science regarding medicine are marvelous. Together we made a trip about this
It was in a hurry that I bade farewell to the Doctor for I saw in the papers that
Joseph Kerner would soon be off on his nonfstop flight from Chicago to the Philip'
pines, so I chartered a plane for the Islands. Friend Kerner made the flight success'
fully and I was one of the first to greet him. To say that he was surprised to see
me would be putting it mildly. He was given a great reception at Manilla and I had
the honor to attend. After the reception we finally got off by ourselves and talked
over old times. Joseph is a wealthy aeroplane manufacturer and had made the big
"hop" to demonstrate the reliability of his planes. However, he informed me that he
had enough of such flights and did not intend to try a long one again.
It was in Rio de janerio that I was to call upon DeVere Brehm, the great mu'
sician. After locating his palatial residence and gaining admittance by a servant,
I was informed that DeVere had given orders that he was not to be disturbed and
that I would have to wait. Of course, I knew well enough that if "Brehm" knew who
his caller was he would be more than glad to see me, but I resolved to make the best
of the situation. While waiting, I heard a queer noise coming from an adjoining
room and I at once told the servant that the cat was playing on the piano keys.
But he gave me a look of disdain. A few minutes later my friend came from the
room and the awful noise stopped. I immediately complimented him for his excel'
lency in playing and he burst into laughter. As soon as he could catch his breath
he informed me that it was not his playing that I heard but that he was just tuning
the piano as it needed it badly. We had a good time in South America and DeVere
related to me how and to what extent he had achieved success. He had acquired
fame as a composer and had played in the leading capitals of the world with royalty
for an audience.
Of all the class, Henry Forster seems to believe in a more peaceful and healthy
life. Forster lives " 'way out West" in Nevada and is the owner of a large cattle
ranch. "Forster" always believed there were greater prospects along this line than any
other, and today he is a man of wealth. One of his greatest pleasures is to attire
himself in the role of a cowboy such as we used to see in the movies and do his "stuff"
His ranch is the largest in the United States and he yearly sends hundreds of carloads
of cattle to Chicago. The bracing air of Nevada was the best I had "tasted" on my
travels and the welcome Henry gave me was fit for a King.
Regretfully I said goodfbye to the last named schoolfmate and went back to St.
Marys. There is one thing that I must mention before closing-every one of these
former students of the Class of '28 confidently informed me that they hoped some day
to return to the city of St. Marys where they could again visit the old school and
haunts of childhood, for "Through pleasures and Palaces, tho' we may roam, -- There's
no place like home, - There's no place like home."

UNDREDS of thousands of the citizens of the United States spend sums
that run into millions each year on tours to Europe, the Orient, South Am'
erica or other places of attraction. In order to curb this vast expenditure of
American dollars in foreign countries there arose the slogan, "See America First."
This, indeed, was good advice for a great number of people who had neglected visiting
and looking upon the true beauty and secrets of their native land. But this is not
enough. How many of the travel stricken tribe know half the interesting places of
the home town? St. Marys, for example. How many of our tourists who, at least
once a week, journey the roads in search of diversion know of the interesting sights
so near at hand and the history concerning them? They are probably few, indeed.
Take a day off sometime and visit the beautiful scenes in and about our city. Penn'
sylvania is noted for its wonderful scenery and many such sights grace the nearby
landscape. The hillsides are covered with many different kinds of trees and the sides
of the babbling brooks are shaded with magnificent trees and bushes, all lending their
aid in improving the natural scenery. In the town itself, practically every front yard,
is graced with some form of pleasing hedges, lawns, stately maples and poplar trees
that make our streets so pleasing to the eye. After such a trip you will feel well
repaid for your time and effort.
-George E. Fischer, '28
The first great charter of Pennsylvania
When men came here to America
Was granted to our founder, Penn,
Honest and square, he treated all men.
The Indians were pleased and in return were square
In consequence we had no Indian warfare,
They knew William Penn was faithful and sure.
As long as the sun and moon would endure
They would live in peace with his chiildren and him
And never the luster of peace grew dim.
Penn's charter was changed in many a way
But some parts remain to the present day.
To show the gratitude due noble men
The State has appointed a day for Penn.

FTER I LEFT school, I received a position as private secretary for a prominent
business man in my home city, where I worked with an earnest heart and will.
Many years had elapsed without much advancement and all my meagre earn'
ings were invested in progressive oil stock. One day I received a special delivery
message. Having never received such a letter before, I was eager to know what it
contained, so I opened it at once and was surprised to learn that my investments had
made me a millionaire. I worked for about two months longer and one day the work
became so tiresome, weary and disgusting that I said to myself, "Why should I work?
Haven't I enough money to furnish myself with all kinds of luxury?" That evening
I resigned my position. I always had a desire to travel but never had the opportunity
to do so, but now with my large bank account and careffree days I thought it was my
chance, so I decided to take a trip around the world and in that way meet my friends
who had gone through twelve years of school with me. I longed so much to see' them
again and talk over old times, but I knew it would be quite difficult to locate them all.
Weeks had flown by as if on wings and on April 8, 1948, I left the city of St.
Marys. My first stopping place was Philadelphia. I went to a large hotel to stay for
a few days in order that I might be able to do some shopping and see the sights.
The next day while walking down Main Street I noticed some sport ensembles in a
shop window. I entered the shop with the purpose of purchasing one. While looking
at the beautiful novelties and other small articles that were lying about, the prof
prietress walked up to me and asked what she could do for me. I told her I would
like to see the sport ensemble that was in the window, she then showed me a model
attired in one of these outfits. I also saw some very beautiful gowns and other
merchandise that they handled. The proprietress seemed so familiar that I felt as
though I had known her all my life. One of her clerks called her Miss Figge. I
then realized it was Elizabeth, my old school friend. We renewed our former friend'
ship and spent about three happy hours in discussing old times and acquaintances.
1 then had to hurry to meet the train bound for New York City. In this buzzing
city I went to call on Mr. De Monte, a stock manager, located on Wall Street. I was
ushered into his presence by his private secretary, who treated me courteously. In her
I immediately recognized Christina Roth. We had a long talk about her position, our
accidental meeting, our school days and our dear old classmates. Christina gave me
some information concerning the whereabouts of some of them. After settling my
financial affairs in this city, I decided to spend the rest of my visit in seeing the sights
of this great metropolis. One day while admiring the beautiful paintings in an art
gallery, my attention was drawn to one picture in particular. The artist's signature
was none other than that of Miss Thalia Siecker. That evening I attended a grand
opera which I enjoyed very much. As I glanced at my program, I noticed, "Leading
Soprano Singer, Miss Orma Nicklasf' I could scarcely wait until she made her ap'
pearance on the stage. At last she arrived and rendered several beautiful selections
in a commendable manner. I did not have time to see her that evening, but after the
performance I learned from the manager that she was engaged to sing at this opera
the Whole week and that she was residing in New York City. The next day, while

walking through one of the parks, I saw an enormous crowd gathered round a tennis
court witnessing a champion game. I also joined the crowd and found the game very
interesting and exciting. After the hard fought battles, the city mayor walked to the
center of the court, holding a large silver cup in his hand and made known to
the public that he wished to present it to the champion, Miss Alice Pistner. I after'
wards congratulated Alice on her praiseworthy victory. She took me to her home
where we talked over old times and school days. Later Alice and I arranged to meet
Thalia Siecker and Orma Nicklas. We invited them to an evening dinner at a
Spanish Tea House and while speaking to Orma we met Grace Ritter, who had
gained worldfwide fame as a music supervisor. We also invited Grace to our dinner
and the five of us spent a most delightful evening.
Two weeks of pleasure and surprises had passed so quickly, and on june 15 I
sailed for Europe in the steamer U. S. Titania. I spent my evenings on the deck
thinking over happy memories in connection with New York and my friends there.
The sun was scorching hot when we landed at Paris and this place was crowded and
busy and the air was so suffocating that I nearly fainted. While walking off the
plank I took hold of a richly clad woman for support, as I was about to fall down.
As I looked up I stared straight into a smiling, brightfeyed face and said aloud,
"Helen Kornackif' She knew me at once, and asked me to come to her home to visit
for a few days, because she wished me to meet her husband.
It seemed as though we drove several miles, but were so busy talking that I did
not notice where we were going. Once or twice I glanced up and saw we were riding
along a country road. We soon reached a gorgeous estate, which Helen said was part
of her estate. Her home was a most magnificent structure, located in a beautiful
country district. Her husband was one of the orominent financiers of Paris. I spent
several days of quiet peace and enjoyment with Helen, and then I went to the city
where I called upon Miss Theckla Steinhousr, known in this European country as a
French modiste. I selected several frocks and we had tea together. In the afternoon
she showed me some of the wonders of Paris. That evening I went to a hotel so as to
lie alone for a while. I picked up a paper that was lying on a stand and glanced over it.
Large black headlines stated, "Special Court at 10:00 A. M., june 2O." I said to
myself, "now is my chance to see how court is held in a foreign country," so the next
morning I went to the Court House, entered the spacious court room and took a place
up front among the spectators. A very sad case was the first on trial. Tears filled
the eyes of all except the hardfhearted judge. A sweet young lady, with pencil and
pad in hand, was seated next to the victim. She carefully noted every word that was
being said. When the trial was finished all filed out and this young lady came toward
me. In her I recognized my friend, Bernadette Hagan. After Bernie left school she
worked hard until she received a position as court interpreter in America. Soon after'
wards she journeyed to Europe, where she took up French. Due to her knowledge of
this language she secured a position in a French court. We talked for a long time. After
having a pleasant visit in Paris I journeyed on to Rome where I met Marie McHenry,
who was employed there as a private secretary. She and I had the great pleasure of visit'
ing the Holy Father. I spent some time with Marie at her apartment where many an event
of yore was recollected. I- then passed on to Jugoslavia, where I found Jane Schaut

teaching the Jugoslavians their own language. Jane had gained a name among these
foreign people as a renowned writer of many languages. I stayed with Jane about
two weeks and enjoyed every moment with her. Jane, having dealings with the king,
was invited to his palace to spend the week end, and I was invited to go along. We
found his company very enjoyable as he was much interested in the United States of
I returned to Paris just in time to witness the celebrations which were being held
in honor of Miss Edna Meisel, who had made a nonfstop flight from her home town
to Paris, crossing the Atlantic in one hour less than scheduled time. Congratulations
were bestowed upon her by the King of France and the President of the United
States, and numerous other high officials. Not having the opportunity to extend my
congratulations in person I sent her a card and inquired as to when I might see her.
I received a prompt reply stating that my company would be desired that same day.
Edna and her friends gave me a hearty welcome. One of her chums served a sumptuf
ous dinner and after that we attended a private program at the Chateau of Serge
Alexandre Strokoff on the Avenue des Champs Elysees. At this gathering I met
Frances Woods. She had risen to one of the highest temporal positions, for she is her
"Serene Highness Frances, Princess of Margentinef' While traveling through Europe
she had met the prince, and he being attracted by her charms, promptly made her his
wife. After his death she became the ruler of his principality. Her subjects loved
her dearly for she governed them with a kind and loving hand. The next day I visited
her castle and its magnificence and beauty startled and enchanted me. I made some
mental notes to tell her friends about her success and a few days later I left her
Having now seen all my friends except Margaret Yaeger and Amanda Hoffman,
I decided to return to my home city. On my homeward journey I visited some of
the famous health resorts and in a Colorado sanitarium I located my other two
friends. They were now engaged in Public Welfare Service and took a great interest
in their work. I reached home September second, and I have had many pleasant
recollections concerning my pleasant tour.

Homerum habuerat ad famam posteris edendam. Mira igitur sorte beatior
Octavianus Augustus, quod invenerit Vergilium, qui merito dicitur Hornerus Romanus
et principes poetarum latinorum, nominis et famae praeconem eximium.
Publius Vergilius Maro in villa Andes juxta Mantuam anno 70 ante Christum
natum ortus est. Ex parentibus ruricolis natus vitae siplicitatem semper retinebat et
amorem refum agrestium.
Educationis causa parentes puerum Mantuam primum miserunt, deinde Medio'
lanum, quod caput fuit Provinciae Galliae Transpadanae. Roman demum profectus
est, ubi studiis litterarum et rhetoricae magno cum ardore incubuit, quibus absolutis
jurisprudentiae passim operam dedit. Denique Mantuam patriam revertit, ubi se totis
vii-ibus versibus dedit.
Post victoriam Phillippis peractam, Octavianus eas Provincias quae sibi restiterant
spoliavit, earumque agros milites in praemium sortiti sunt. Vergilio quoque paterna
praedia evicta sunt. Quam ob rem Romarn petiit ut causam partis contra spoliatores
agerat. Romae, intermeniente Maecenate, obtinuit non solum restitutonem rerum
paternarum, sed etiam benevolentiam Maecen atis atqua ipsius Imperatoris. Grato
animo poeta librum versum cui titulul Eclogorum Imperatori dedicavit. Eclogi sunt
poemata pastoralia quorum meritum et indoles poetam in lucem attulerunt. Librurn
Eclogorum secutus est liber Georgocon, continens poemata agrestia et in lauden agri
culturae conscriptus. Decimo anno ante mortem Vergilius incepit opus suum mag'
num, quod amniurn temporum studiosis litterarum notum fuit et erit.
Aeneis sive cantus Aeneae duodecim libris disposita, prae ceteris operibus poetae
ingenium demonstrat. Summa cum arte juguntur incendium Trojanum oberrationesque
pii Aeneae - "Trojae qui primus ab oris
Italiam fato profugus Lavinaque Venit", cum initiis imperii Romani. Totum
opus in patrocinium Augusti benefactoris et in laudem et memoriam nominis Romani
conscription nemo est qui ignorat. Ita puer Ascanius qui et Ilus appellatue, magnus

Vergilius non magis quam arma virumque Augustum patronum suum.
Deeem annos labores impendit Aeneiden coniiciendo. Valetudinis causa Athenas
profectus est, sed in itinere morbo vehementer correptus in Italiam se reportari jussit.
Obiit Vergilius Brundisio anno 19 ante Christum natum. Paullo antequam mortuus
est, ut fertur, versus fecit describentes vitam suam et mortem et momenta laborum:

Q L ESPANOL, asi como el frances y el italiano es un idioma romance, es decir,
el nace del latin, la lengua de Roma. Esta no suena mucho como el latin
cuando lo oimos hablando hoy. Pero si nosotros sabemos algun latin esto nos
hace aprender mucho mas facil el espanol porque el origen de muchas de los palabras
es el rnismos.
Un gran numero de personas estudian espanol ahora, en los Estados Unidos. Una
de las razones es, que este es el idioma que se hablan en gran parte de Sudarnerica y
muchos muchachos lo estudian en la scuela de manera que lo usaran mas tarde en
correspondencia de negocios. Otras estudian espanol para estar capacidados para poder
leer literatura Espanola. Aunque la literatura de Espana no es tan bien conocida
como la de otros paises, esta es una de las mas distintivos y una de las mas interestante
del mundo. El hermosa dialecto Castellano, el cual es el estandarte literario de la
lengua es a la' veg suave y meliodoso, claro y vigoroso. -Muchos lementos han entrado
en el pero todavia retienen su originalidad y su naturaleza. Estos son cualidades, tam-
bien, que distinguen la literaturia Espanola. No tan sutil, y profunda como la inglesa
o frances, por ejemplo, esta sobresale en su vivacidad, su realidad fuerte su derechura
de vision y por su agudo humor y satira.

HE GERMAN language is that most spoken in Central Europe and it is also
used extensively here in America, and in other parts of the world. Although
Americans generally use the English language, many people are still found to
speak the other tongues, especially the older people.
When Science is considered German ranks above all other languages for the most
noted scientists come from Germany. Also in art, especially music, the German
nation stands prominent, as many of the noted composers and musicians come from
The study of German, while perhaps more difficult in many ways than the
English language, is not really too difficult to master. Many many think that the
knowledge of this language is useless to them, because English is so popular, but we
frequently meet persons, both here at home and when touring other countries, who
cannot express themselves in English. It is really a. pleasure for them and for us if
we ind that we can converse with them in their native tongue. Q
German speaking countries have much which is of interest to the traveler. There,
are galleries abound in works of sculpture, in paintings, and other things of beauty
and interest. The museums, the buildings, old castles and historic ruins-all take on
a new interest when their history can be told to us by those who have always lived
there, and we certainly receive greater satisfaction than if we must get everything
second hand, as it were, because of being unable to understand the language of the

weight of atoms of the elements with oxygen taken as a standard equal to 16. Of
equal importance is the molecular weight of a substance, that is, the number that
expresses the weight of its molecule compared with the oxygen taken as standard
equal to 32.
Priestly discovered that by heating red oxide of mercury a gas was given off
which supported combustion more readily than air, this gas has been called oxygen.
Lavosier, a French chemist, is sometimes called the "Father of modern chemistry".
He discovered the correct answer for the process of burning.
During the last quarter of the century, chemistry has advanced more than in any
period of the same length. The number of facts which are found has increased and
is increasing so rapidly as to defy a single man to follow its progress. Not all of these
facts which are found by research work of the chemist are of equal importance, but
the revision of the atomic weights, the discovery of new elements, and the means of
manufacturing well known substances and inventions have greatly increased our
knowledge and realization of chemistry.
Of even greater value has been the advance of chemistry in theories. Not many
years ago the only general laws were these affecting the chemical compounds and the
law of Multiple Proportion. We meet with many chemical changes, yet few of us
recognize them. When we walk through the woods and see the decaying stumps
and trees we say that they are dead, and pay no further attention, little do we recogf
nize the change nature has produced in them.
When we walk into a factory we notice everything working, everybody is busy.
We study the different sights which strike the eye, yet little do we think of the won'
ders which chemistry has done towards this and for the manufacturer. The manufacf
turer employs the chemist to take necessary tests to insure a satisfactory product. By
daily experimenting the chemist tries to improve the process of manufacture or to
create a new means of producing the same at smaller costs. He uses his utmost skill,
solving a new way to utilize any waste product. The chemist's analysis shows what
various substances are made of g he determines the amount of metal in a piece of ore.
He can tell the amount and what kind of fertilizer is to be placed in a piece of soil
so as to produce an abundant supply of the wanted kind.
At present most of us are quite unconscious of the debt we owe to the chemists
who protect our lives by seeing that there are no adulterations in our food, and no
disease bacteria in our water supply. All of this can be carried on only if the work
of the chemist is understood by the people. When great popular interest shall turn
to chemistry, the advancement of civilization will still be more rapid. The age in
which we live presses the necessity of such knowledge upon us.

OR MANY years Pennsylvania Day has been a matter of interesting discussion.
Some people thought that the date of l?enn's Landing should be selected for the
day, but it was finally decided that it should be observed March 4, as that is the
date on which Charles II of England granted the Charter to William Penn.
It is the wish of the educators of Pennsylvania that this day be observed in all the
schools of Pennsylvania.
The students of our school prepared a very good program for the occasion.
Among the numbers rendered were original poems, stories concerning the happenings
in Pennsylvania, essays and several selections of patriotic music.
Several of the students made some very nice posters. One, which drew the
attention of everyone,'is that of Pennsylvania's oldest hunter, Bill Long, known as
"King Hunter". The picture has been exhibited at Smith Brothers' Store for some
time and we are certain that it has had many admirers.

Winter is gone and spring is here,
With its flowers to deck and cheer.
The snow is gone, the grass peeps out,
Little children are seen about.
All sleds and skates are stored away,
The sun is warm, what fun to play.
Meanwhile the busy farmer plows,
While all the trees renew their boughs.
The breeze is warm, the sky is blue,
All Nature dons a brighter hue,
Chirping robins about us fly,
'Tis a sign that Summer is nigh.

AINT CAMILLUS de Lellis was born at Bacchianico, Naples, in 1550. He
died at Rome, July 14, 1614. His mother having died while he was a small child,
he grew up entirely neglected. When but a youth he enlisted as a soldier in
the service of Venice and later, Naples. While in the service he became a gambler,
and as a result of this he was at times reduced to destitution.
He then went to Rome where he obtained employment in a hospital for Incurf
ables. He, having'abscesses in both his feet and hoping to obtain a cure, desired to
go there, but he was dismissed on account of his quarrelsome conduct and desire for
gambling. Then again he entered the hospital and received a temporary cure for his
ailment. Later he became a nurse, and having won the admiration of that institution
by his piety and prudence, he was appointed director of the hospital.
At the age of thirtyftwo he determined to become a priest and studied Latin at
the Jesuit college in Rome. He later established the order "The Fathers of a Good
Death", and bound the members by a vow to devote themselves to the plaguefstrickeng
their work was not in hospitals, but included the care of the sick in homes.
While ailments made his life one of suffering, he permitted no one to wait on
him, and when hardly able he would crawl out of bed to visit the sick.
He died at the age of sixtyffour and was buried near the high altar of the church
of St. Mary Magdaline, at Rome, and when miracles were attributed to him, he was
beautified in 1742 and canonized by Benedict XIV in 1746.

Organization of the llunior Red Cross
N JANUARY 6, our Class was organized with sixteen students who are the
Seniors of the St. Mary's Catholic High School. When it was known that
the course in Home Hygiene and Care of the Sick was being given at the
school, three of the 1927 class asked for admission to the class, so we are now a happy
family of nineteen.
January 8, the ladies of St. Mary's Chapter were appealed to for room -equipf
ment. The ladies called january tenth for a conference and promised to aid in
furnishing the demonstration room. By the next class period the Red Cross Chapter
had sent two beds, mattresses, pillows and other helpful articles with the promise
of further cofoperation. Our students are much interested in the work. They, too,

willingly supplied some bed linen and many other things needed for good practice work.
During the month of February, the St. Mary's Chapter furnished an infant crib,
bath tub and an infant size doll with complete layette. The students furnished chairs,
screens and bed table.
A considerable amount of literature was sent for and distributed among the
class members. Last, but not least, "The Junior Red Cross and How to Enroll the
School", was given to the class to stimulate interest and enrollment.
Due to the kindness of the ladies of our local chapter, and the interest and
good will of the members of our class as well as the untiring efforts of our instructor,
Sister M. Corda, O.S.B., our room is now neat and cozy and well equipped. The
students are taking a keen interest in all their work and they feel certain that this
knowledge of Health Work will prove invaluable to them in future years.
As the little Jesus played one day
With His playmates close to the river's brink
From the clay they shaped some little birds
And set them down as if to drink.
"Shall I now make them fly away?"
Spoke the Child to His friends at play.
"Thou canst not do it," said Judas and frowned,
"For well thou knowest they're nought but clay."
But the Lord then sweetly told them to fly,
-And "Judas remember me during life," He said.
But judas, in anger, then struck the Child
Where the spear later pierced Him when He was dead,
But the birds this kindness did not forget.
There came to the cross, so legends say, A
A sparrow that tried the nails to remove
From the hands that had made those birds of clay.

Society of the Propagation ot' the Faith to
Aid Missionaries lln Foreign Fields
Cfligh School Branchj
ANY MISSIONARIES travel from country to country, island to island,
preaching the word of God. In many foreign fields there are thousands of
pagans who do not know that there is a God above us all, whom we are to
serve in time and eternity. The missionaries sacrifice all pleasures to save even one of
these heathen souls. Missionary work is severe labor everywhere, but especially in
To live in small huts where one has to stoop to get through the opening that is
to represent a door, and which a lion or any ferocious animal, of which many infest
some of these lands, can with one blow dernolishg to eat raw meat and such things
as are not considered proper food by civilized man, and to labor without ceasing under
the most adverse circumstances trying to make these pagans understand the Word of
God, generally means a very short life to the missionary.
Yet to convert the heathens is not as hard, at times, as to induce some of the
parishioners to give money to supply these people with religious articles, pictures and the
like, which are a help and are of untold value to the Priests and Sisters in their
work to win souls to God. We can help to make the missionaries' life easier by giving
our pennies which we had intended to spend for candy and amusements, to this great
cause, thereby saving many souls for Heaven.
Among the religious organizations in our school we have the Society of the
Propogation of the Faith, so strongly advocated by the Holy Father, and as members
of this we hope to accomplish much towards the Foreign Missions, and so help to fulfil
Christ's cmmand, "Go, teach all nations."

Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary
CSL Mary's Branchj
T IS A WONDERFUL privilege and honor to be numbered among the members
of the Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our model of purity and humility.
The St. Mary's Sodality has been in existence for a number of years and its
membership has been rapidly increasing. At the last reception, held in December,
about forty new members were admitted.
The members perpetually partake of all the spiritual benefits, which are certainly
not few. All Catholic young girls who have reached the age of sixteen years should
become members. By doing so they place themselves under the special protection of
the Blessed Virgin in whose intercession all girls should have unbounded confidence.
The society, in a body, receives Holy Communion the first Sunday of each month.
Our meetings are held in the Gymnasium, where both business and social affairs are
conducted. Under the guidance of Rev. Father Timothy, O.S.B., the spiritual ad'
viser, the young ladies have many opportunities of making progress, not only toward
their own welfare, but also toward that of others. What is grander than purity in
young girls and women and how can this virtue be more truly fostered than by our

Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary
QSacred Heart Branchj
HE BLESSED VIRGIN Sodality is an organization to which every Catholic
young lady should belong. Its benefits are great and numerous, both spiritf
ually and temporally. When entering this society we promise to labor for
the acquisition of the virtues which ought to distinguish the children of Mary, namely:
Purity, Humility, Obedience and Charity.
The members receive Holy Communion in a body the second Sunday of each
month and in the afternoon a conference is held by the spiritual adviser. At present,
Rev. Father Kevin, O.S.B., is the spiritual director. After the conference the draff
matic club usually has a little onefact play for the memberfattendants.
Besides the spiritual values which every Sodalist derives, there are social benefits
also which each one enjoys. Basketball teams have been organized and various enter'
tainments have been conducted by the different members. The Sodality rooms are a
place of much mcrriment and each one enjoys the hours spent there.

MONG OUR school activities, we are always sure to observe Music Week.
During this time, the students assemble' in the large study hall and each day
of the week a different group conducts a musical program consisting of vocal
and instrumental music, and instructive essays on Music and the great composers.
In this way, the students become accustomed to a large audience and are greatly aided
in overcoming selffconsciousness. The stimulating and inspiring effect of an interested
audience brings the performer greater conidence, while at the same time, fellow mu'
sicians may benefit from the interpretation and technique of the selections rendered.
Then too, in this environment musical culture is readily absorbed by the student.

USIC, IN SOME form or other, has been known to all nations at all times
and ages. The wonderful advancement in music at the present day is the
cultivation of the last century or so, but even from the remotest ages of
civilization we have evidence which points to the fact that music, in some crude way,
was known and made use of by the most ancient tribes of people. Crude drums,
made of parts of hollow tree trunks with skins stretched tightly over the open ends,
date back as far as the Stone Age. These drums were most probably used 6I'St in
religious ceremonies held by these ancient tribes, because we find related in the his'
tory of music, that in practically all its forms, it was xirst used for this purpose.
These instruments were also used extensively in summoning the warriors of the diff
ferent tribes for council. The wild, uncivilized tribes, living in the remote regions
of the tropics today, still use this form of music for practically the same purpose as
It is remarkable how far the sound of these instruments traveled. We are told
by experienced missionaries and explorers that they heard them at a distance of twenty
or twentyffive miles, and in some instances they have journeyed for four of five days
from the coast until they arrived at the place from which the sound had issued.
Gradually the art of singing came into use. At first it was a sort of chant, also
primarily used in the religious ceremonies of the savages. For a long time it conf
sisted of but one note, till Bnally one of the savages, while chanting by himself one day
in the woods, happened to utter two different sounds, or notes, and, noticing this,
told the rest of his tribe. Gradually through the centuries, the whole octave of eight
notes, including the halffnotes, was discovered. This probably was the first advance'
ment made by our ancestors in the art of music.
Later were invented the various musicfproducing contrivances, such as windf
blowing instruments, made of the horns of animals and hollowedfout tree branches,
and also the stringed instruments, which at first consisted of strong Hbers of shrub
or of cloth stretched tightly across a piece of wood. These instruments, known as
lyres, were first picked with the fingers, and later bowed. They were used extensively
by the ancients.
About the middle of the fourteenth century came, with the perfection cf' the
organ, the keyed instruments. From then on, the perfection of musical instruments
has continually increased, and great and rapid strides have been made in music.
The German nation has held the leading place in music for a great many years.
Among their numbers are found the world's most celebrated musicians, such as
Franz Liszt, Shumann, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, and many others, who have conf
tributed to the world some of the most beautiful and most renowned operatic and
concert music, together with a large amount of study and drill work, which is inf
valuable to the student, and even to the advanced musician.
Although much credit is bestowed on the Germans, the Italians are not far in the
background. They had formerly led the world in this particular art, and tofday are

hot contenders for the title now bestowed on the Germans. Most of the expressions
found in musical compositions have been derived from the Italian language, and
among her race are also found some of the most famed musicians in the world, and
their musical instruments are not to be lightly considered.
We speak of the Golden Age of Literature, and the Golden Age of different arts
and sciences, can we also speak of the Golden Age of Music? Considering the playing
or rendering of music by artists, perhaps we can, for probably no greater age for that
art was known to man than the last century. At no time in the history of music,
perhaps not even at the present day, do we find such brilliant and skilled' artists and
composers as we do in that particular age. Especially noteworthy among these is
Franz Liszt, who died only fortyffour years ago. He is declared by every critic and
renowned musician of tofday as the most wonderful pianist and composer the world
has ever known, and likely will know for a long time to come. How many are there
who have not heard at least one of his twenty Rhapsodies, played the world over by
band and orchestra? Among these, the Hungarian Rhapsody is the most celebrated.
As far as the development of musical instruments is concerned, we can hardly speak
of the Golden Age of Music. In Liszt's time there was the piano, and a few wind
instruments, certainly not as refined as those of tofday. Now we have the player
piano, and still better, the electric piano, the victrola, and also the electric victrola,
which even changes its own records. We have all sorts of wind instruments, together'
with a large variety of stringed devices, which furnish the wouldfbe musician with a
very extensive field to choose from. Nevertheless, we know that we have not yet
reached the limits of invention.
We can clearly see that music has played an important part in the history of
mankind, practically from the creation of the human race, down through all the
centuries and ages to the present day, and scarcely no instance can he seen where it
has gone on the decline.
No home, no school, no club, practically no institution at all, is complete with'
out some musical instrument such as the piano, player piano, victrola, or organ, for
music plays an important role in a great many activities of our organizations. To
all entertainment, to all amusements in general, there should be music.
The art of music is being more and more appreciated, and is becoming more and
more a part of our daily routine. As the days and months pass into years, we shall
certainly find a rapid advancement in the perfection of musical instruments, ask well
as a steady increase of music lovers and followers. '

HE CQMMERCIAL course, although usually deemed the easiest, is by no
means of such an easy nature as some students consider it, on the contrary,
it occasionally taxes the brightest and most versatile minds to the limit. The
commercial students, on the whole, however, prefer this study to the intricacics cf the
classical course, the latter requiring as it does such arduous work.
The studies comprising the commercial course listed in the order of the student's
preference, are as follows: Bookkeeping, Shorthand, Arithmetic, Commercial Law,
and Typewriting. ,We will now take up these respective studies and discuss their
merits and demerits.
The first, Bookkeeping, demands so much of the student's time that whether he
likes it or not, he must eventually become, in some measure, proficient in it, and also
come to like it. Naturally, the entire class in this subject hope some day to become,
if not experts, at least experienced in this linc of work.
Th next subject, Shorthand, as it goes hand in hand with Bookkeeping, must
consequently be studied with the same vigor and determination if one has any ex-
pectation of succeeding in it. The students, on the whole, like this branch because

it requires skill and proficiency which can only be obtained by practice and endeavor.
Although our class has not by any means become expert in this study each member
confidently hopes some day to bring this experience to practical use and profit.
Arithmetic, which requires considerable time and energy, is duly appreciated by
the students as all realize the benefits and mental exercises obtained from it. Besides
inciting the student's interest and mental faculties it gives him experience that will
be helpful throughout all the years of his life, and it is for this reason that he bends
every effort to secure skill in this branch of the Commercial course.
Commercial Law, the next subject to be dealt with, is combined with Civics.
As these two branches are requisites for good citizenship they are eagerly and faith'
fully studied by one and all. This topic, like all other branches of the curriculum,
becomes simple and is easily understood if diligently pursued. The students who
realize this will have gone a long way towards accomplishing the end for which they
took up the study, for "a good start is half the race".
Typewriting is eagerly taken up by all the students as a sort of recompense or
diversion after all the hard work they had, of necessity, to accomplish in the other
lines of their work, and it is a well known fact that the better a person likes a subject
the more likely it is that he will succeed in it. The various articles of the Chronicle
and the Year Book were typed by the Senior students, besides their daily school work.
Several of the class conidently expect to obtain a certificate before the end of the term.
In addition to the above named studies there are others which must be taken up
by both the Classical and Commercial members, chief of which are History, English,
Latin, Religion, and usually a foreign language, preferably German or Spanish. The
students of the several divisions have worked diligently and late to complete their
course. The Commercial students, while not harboring any perverted ideas as to
their own skill, still hope to attain and fill positions in their special sphere with credit,
both to themselves and to their solicitous teachers, and it is also anticipated that the
Science enthusiasts will bring credit to the school by reaching the pinnacle of scientific

REV. FATHER ANGELUS, O. S. B
Our helper in Athletics
Our adviser and our friend,
His time is gladly given
When our time at play we spend.
He'd have us strong and healthy
In body and in soul,
Would see clean, Christian manhood
Be every student's goal.
His eye is ever watchful
To encourage what is right,
To chide us when our actions
Are displeasing in God's sight.
We're glad to have you, Father,
About us when we play,
And pray you'll be successful,
That none may go astray.

It was a bright, brisk day in winter,
The snow came lightly floating down,
The trees caught all that they could carry
And all the rest fell to the ground.
It lay' there glistening and sparkling,
And soon the hill was coated white.
'Twas irresistibly inviting
To the lads who viewed it with delight '
The little fellows jumped and shouted
That they could now go out to coast.
Then sleds and boys came out together
All marshalled like a daring host.
They reached the hill, then oh, the cheering
Their voices soon rose to a shout.
The hillside grew alive with children '
In gleeful enjoyment they ran about.
But, alas, how quick their joy was ended,
The sun rose high up in the sky,
The snow grew soft, and soon it melted,
And happiness began to die.
All left the hill, a band of mournersg
They saw not what their elders saw:
That many there would have been injured
Had Providence not sent the thaw.

T LAST WE are juniors. The goal for which we are striving will eventually
become a reality. We are proud that the members of our class are willing
and enthusiastic workers. The dragon, a name we have applied to dilliculty,
rose before us many times but by patience and perseverance we have conquered and
have succeeded up to our present Work. All look forward with anticipation to the
Senior year of our school career. We know that we will have more duties to per'
form but by earnest effort we hope to succeed. '
During this year We have been given the opportunity to take up typewriting,
which is a pleasure to all. We know this practice will help us in securing prizes
next year. The Commercial Class also began shorthand this year and have a very good
start, while the Science Class expect to finish the theory and experiments of high
school chemistry before the' school closes this term. The most memorable event of the
year was the reception tendered by the Juniors to the Seniors, February 14. Due
to the musical ability of a number of our class members an interesting program was
rendered after the luncheon.
We Juniors, now bid a fond adieu to the class of 1928 and hope that success
will follow each in his chosen career.

For hardships that He'll send, Through cruel winter's sway,

ITH GREAT PRIDE and much ambition, we, the Freshman Girls, entered
the first of the four doors of High School in the autumn of '27, We exf
pected very difficult studies but found that with diligent application, they
could be mastered.
Gradually, we are falling in line with the High School Work and we are sure
that every one is so industrious that she will have mastered all the subjects which
belong to her course. May none of our number be missing by 1931, when we hope
to have reached our goal.
We, the Freshman Class of '27, know that Religion is first rate,
Algebra, we participate, and Latin, most we appreciate,
History, we recite without a duplicate,
English is a subject which we must take,
Because it especially aids to educate,
Science, which treats of nature,
We all think it our duty to partake.

HE BOYS OF the Freshman Class are all striving to make this year the greatest
success in the records of Freshman History. Our class roll now numbers 33
boys. This, we believe, is the second largest class of First Year High Boys in
the history of St. Marys Catholic High School. In class activities, we have been
leading the school.
The freshmen of the Catholic High
Have a spirit that shall never dieg
And their determination to get through
Will always stick like a bottle of glue.
While yearning to get through school,
Makes them step to the Golden Rule.
And when the Sisters pass them by
To the great Collegiate High,
They will remember that day of sorrow
When their troubles were few to borrow.

The Activities ofthe Freshman Class
HE WEEK OF November 6, 1927, brought with it the sofcalled Education
Week. This week -marked the beginning of the activities of the Freshman
Class. A program was held each day of the week as it had been held for
years past throughout the country. To the Seniors and juniors this was not much
out of the ordinary, but to the Freshmen it was a new experience.
The Freshman Program was held in the Recreation Hall, which was beautifully
decorated with pictures, banners, flags, mottoes, drawings, posters, etc. Constitution
Day showed the soldier, sailor and other national leaders. For Teacher's Day and
Parish School Day we had on display pictures of missionaries, schools, etc. For
Health Day, health posters, health rules, and a pyramid of soap, which represented
the chief factor of cleanliness. Patriotism Day showed pictures and posters some'
what like Constitution Day.
All the class strived faithfully to make this program a success. They displayed
their talents in the writings of compositions, in singing, music, etc. The program
closed with the 11th of November, or Armistice Day. It was a great success and all
were pleased at the interest shown by all the pupils.
The next great achievement of the Freshman Class was March 2, or Pennsylvania
Day. The Recreation Hall was again decorated with banners, flags, historic pictures,
and last of all, a tent and a campfire. The greatest feature of this day- was the
Treaty with the Indians, which brought to mind the treaty Penn made with the Inf
dians under the great tree. The parts of this were performed by Freshman Boys and
they received great applause. This program ended with the singing of "Pennsylvania",
the state song.

HILDREN MUST BE obedient to higher authority. When at home they must
be obedient to their parents and while in school to their teachers. Unless the
commands' given them are unjust or sinful, which is seldom the case, they must
be obeyed. The parents and the school prescribe certain rules which are to be obeyed,
otherwise the children merit punishment. The schools wish their pupils to become
good and useful citizens and to attain desirable positions.
Among the chief things that a school demands of its pupils is good behavior on
their way to and from school, that they do not run over people's lawns so that com'
plaints have to be sent in to those in charge of the schoolsg and that they do not
snowball. The law forbids anyone to snowball within the city limits under a penalty
of fine. The school forbids their pupils to snowball on or near the school grounds
and if an offender is caught he is punished by his teacher.
Children and also grownfups who are obedient to their superiors will almost
always get along better in the world than those who are disobedient. Those who can
be trusted when not in the teacher's presence, have a good character, but one who can
not be trusted to the smallest thing has few chances of a position.
Being entrusted to the performance of some important mission shows that a
person has had a great deal of confidence placed in him. Some persons are singled
out to do things the opportunity of which would be given to few others. Messengers
of large banks in the cities are trusted by the leading bankers and must be honest to
hold such positions. Boys or girls after leaving school sometimes receive a position of
little importance and after working a short time their employer discovers they can be
trusted and as soon as an opportunity arrives he promotes them to a better position,
and, as he finds them more and more trustworthy he advances them until they hold
one of or probably the highest position in his employment.

Uur Alumni Associations
LCSELY AFFILIATED with the St. Marys Catholic High School and ever
reflecting honor upon the Alma Mater through itself as an organization and
the individual accomplishments of its members stands the St. Marys Catholic
High School Alumni Association, formally organized in 1911 by graduates of the
classes of 1908, 1909, 1910 and 1911. In fact, this organization functioned in an
informal manner from the first, i. e., from 1908 when St. Marys Catholic High School
turned out her first graduates.
When the first officers of this association assembled around the conference table
little did they dream that from this humble beginning would arise an organization
as formidable as the present one with its three hundred members, all graduates, all
proud possessers of a great honor that came to them as a fitting reward for years of
hard work in reaching life's first important goal: an honor which is more permanent
than time, as indelibly imprinted upon the individuals character as the mark of dis'
tinction on the brow of a patriciang an honor that neither the vicissitudes of fortune
nor any Act of Life's Great Drama can affect.
Our Alumni is unique in that, unlike most associations of its kind, only graduates
are eligible to membership. This standard requirement gives it great prestige and
Alumni members have ever appreciated this fact.
The purpose of the Association is to cofoperate with the Alma Mater in further'
ing higher Catholic education and to provide ways of uniting graduates along intel'
lectual, spiritual and social lines. When the Alumni was young it was possible to
congregate more frequently than at present, when the increased membership requires
large halls and elaborate arrangements.
However, it is still possible to unite several times a year and the entire member'
ship ever awaits with keen anticipation the Annual Class Day Banquet and Social
given every year on the day following graduation. These splendid affairs, rich in
beautiful tradition, attract graduates from far and wide to come back and once again
clasp in friendship the hands of those dear associates of old with whom they labored
side by side, sharing joys and sorrows alike on the road to graduation.
The staging of this Annual Reunion alone, in my opinion, is a thing of such
eminent beauty and vital significance as to justify of itself the existence of our organif
Members of the Alumni Association are prominently identified with all church
and civic organizations, so that while at times it may appear that the Alumni itself
is not personally engaged in a particular movement, investigation will invariably def
velop that the Association is well represented among its leaders and active workers.
The individual achievements of our members are daily reflecting honor upon the
Alumni Association and most particularly upon the school we love so dearly. Catholic
Hi's contribution to the fields of Science, of Law, of Literature, Music and the Arts
has been large and the quality of the best.

The Mischievous Bees
The sun was shining bright and clear,
The air was moist and warm,
The bees were flying through the air
As if about to swarm.
By chance I passed right near the spot,
Which was for me not healthy:
I'd sooner not have passed the place,
E'en had it made me wealthy.
However, I just, had the luck,
That one bee lit upon meg
And then and there I hurried home
. As quick as feet could bear me. .
And when at home I had arrived,
I found it was desertedg
And there I sat and suffered much,
Wliich might have been averted.
Now, young and old, take good advice:
just stay away from a bee swarmg
For when they go on the war path
I've found they'll surely do you harm.

Advice to the lluniors
Follow the Seniors, O Juniors, O junicrs.
Follow them closely and see what they dog
Copy their habits, their manners and customs,
They are the models that are given to you.
If you are weary and want to be happy,
Look at the Senior Class, day after day,
No dull gray clouds hang o'er their horizon,
For when they're coming they turn them away.
All of the class are respectful and pleasing,
Kind, staunch and true to their teachers and all,
Giving their elders the first place of honor,
Ready to rise if they happen to fall.
They hasten to school with a glee that's unbounded,
Take up their books with the greatest of ease,
Study their lessons with a joy that's well founded,
Follow them, Juniors, thus your merits increase.
