THIS EIGHTH EDITION
ST. MARYS CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL
Saint Joseph, to Thy Family holy,
We dedicate this humble work.
Accept in its name this offering lowlyg
In efforts to please you, no labor we'll shirk.
Our Memo we offer with true loving heart,
Do thou on our efforts your blessing impart.
And, dear St. Joseph, be our guide
As over life's treacherous sea we glide.
Beg Mary, your Spouse, to keep us from sin,
And help us, her children, Heaven to win.
Tell Jesus, your Son, who in your arms found rest
To take each of us to His Home of the blest.
O Happy Trio, Heaven's home here below
On our dear homes your sweet peace bestow!

THE HOLY FAMILY
The home of peace, content and joy
The home of love supreme
The home where Joseph is the king
And Mary reigns as queen.
And still one more adorns this home
'Tis Jesus their Son so mildg
He fills the hopes of king and queen,
This pure and holy Child.
Together they live in peace and love
As only true hearts cang
Together They set an example great
To ever dis-satisfied man.
St. Joseph is working with hammer and saw
With Jesus his faithful aid,
Who joyously runs to His mother so dear
To show her the cross He has made.
Gently she smiles and caresses her Son
But sorrowful tears fill her eyesg
She visions her Child on Calvary's way
Yes-slowly that tragedy nighs.
That cross is a symbol of sadness to her
Yet she stills all her troubles and fearsg
She revels and plays with the Child on her lap
Yet she thinks of what looms in the years.
And though they are faced with the troubles of life
And the sorrows that come thru the years
They are happy to know that united are they
To soothe all their troubles and fears.
A Christian home that is modeled on theirs
On the basis of tenderest love,
Can always seek help in sorrows and cares
From this Family now reigning above.

Dear St. Joseph, ever holy,
Spouse of Mary, mother mild,
Guardian and gentle father
Of her Son, the Holy Child.
You did prove a gentle father
For our Savior here on earth
And did guide Him and protect Him
From the moment of His birth.
When King Herod's intent was sounded
You led them over Egypt sands
So they could live more securely
In the distant dreary land.
There you lived in peace and quiet
Ever toiling thru the years
Caring gently for your loved ones
Calming all their troubled fears.
Then when life's lone chores had ended
You did from this life depart
And the gentle arms of Jesus
Held you closely to His Heart.
Now St. Joseph, ever holy,
Guide me from thy home above
That one day I there may join thee
In thy haven of peace and love.

CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART
THE deep love of the Central High School students for the Sacred
Heart was declared on Friday morning, October 23, when the entire
student body consecrated themselves to the loving Heart of Jesus.
Before the beautifully adorned altar erected and decorated by the
Seniors under the supervision of our Sisters, the students gathered to
place themselves under the protection of the Sacred Heart and to pro-
fess openly their loyalty to Jesus Christ, King.
The hymn, "O Sacred Heart, O Love Divinel' Was first sung by
the students after which Very Reverend Father Timothy, O.S.B., touch-
ingly spoke of the deep love of the Sacred Heart toward all mankind and
of the love man should, in turn, render Him. Then in a very impressive
act of consecration the students implored the Divine Heart to preside
over their assemblages, to bless their enterprises, both spiritual and tem-
poral, to dispel their cares, to sanctify their joys, to alleviate their suf-
ferings, and finally to unite all in eternal bliss.
Before Father bestowed the benediction, the hymn, "To Christ the
Prince of Peace" Was sung.
The students departed from this sacred ceremony with a feeling of
that Peace in their hearts which only the Creator and Lover of all hearts

for the Consecration of Our School
Would that I were a flower,
A beautiful lily white,
So I could guard my Jesus
During the lonesome night.
I'd keep Him from all danger,
I'd give Him all my care.
I'd guard Him as no other could
In the Tabernacle there.
1'd give Him all I owned,
Among my greatest treasures,
The purest of all loving hearts
Beyond all earthly measures.
I would not be afraid of Death
When beckoned from my altar dome
I'd hurry, oh! so anxiously
To my true Heavenly Home.

"THE HOLY EUCHARISTU
Holy Eucharist, from God, our greatest gift,
Doth our heart to Heaven, reverently lift,
It is the lifeblood strengthening every fainting soul
While it journeys on to its eternal goal.
It is to everyone a source of priceless grace
And holds our loving hearts in Jesus, fond embrace.
A Friend of friends He comes to us in time of need,
To troubled Souls gives consolation in word and deed.
Within its whitened walls so spotless, so unstained
The living Body and Blood of Jesus it contained
The Eucharist is the eternal King of Kings,
Whose praise in ceaseless chorus all creation sings.

A GRADUATE'S PRAYER
Dearest Mother at your feet today
Your child begs guidance on life's way
As from this school I'l1 soon depart,
With faith instilled deep in my heart.
Take me, Mother, in thy loving care,
Shield me from the tempter's snare.
Be my light on life,s dark way,
Lest my steps from virtue stray.
In sorrow, joy, or strife at my side,
Ever be my refuge and my guide.
With me travel life's long path
As thy Son, my Savior hath.
When inward griefs and bitter tears
Are mingled with the passing years,
O, Mother dear, the thought of thee
Will strength and courage give to me.
Mother, teach me God's will to know,
Do thou aid me as thru life I go,
Prepare my heart to meet your Son
When I have life's great battle won.
, JOSEPHINE BOLOGNA.

As infants new-born we receive Baptism,
As we grow older confirming with Chrismg
Then if perchance we've offended by sin,
Penance renews the grace within,
Brings us back to Christ in sweet reunion,
With the beautiful privilege of Holy Communion.
Should anyone wish to serve God solely,
He can receive the Priestly Orders Holy.
Cn those who the wedded life prefer,
Matrimony will rich blessings confer.
When the processes of life through illness scarce function,
We get strength and consolation through Extreme Unction.

Diligence in her studies will certainly lead to
success in her future career as a teacher.
ANTHONY F. HERBST
Distinguished for his success in studies, his
musical talents, class spirit and sportsmanship,
is our class president, Anthony. He was chos-
en captain of our varsity team, editor-in-chief
of our annual, and gives promise of reflecting
credit upon his school in his future career.
HELEN C. CASSADY
Similar to a bee, Helen is forever gather-
ing the sweets of life and distributing them
with her sunny disposition. All who have
come in contact with her have been drawn by
her infectious smile. When it comes to sports,
Helen is sure to be there for she is a sport-
WILLIAM C. HANHAUSER
William outranks many of his classmates in
his studies. Nevertheless he is always the
same quiet, unassuming, congenial companion
that one likes for a pal. Never does an unkind
word pass his lipsg above board, and sincere-
his honesty is unimpeachable.
.IOSEPHINE L. BOLOGNA
Josephine, the possessor of a shy but sweet
disposition, is a general favorite of the class.
For nursing, which is her ambition, her cheery
smile will comfort many in their adliction
and make those who are sorrowful, happy.
May her future career be a happy one.

EDITH M. WERNER
Lovable, kind and energetic. This is Edith.
Always punctual in all her studies and tasks.
Never failing to give one a helping hand when
in need. Edith has chosen the academic course
and devoted most of her time to her studies.
She ranks as one of the highest in the class.
If you are in need of a loyal and true friend,
Edith will be glad to oblige.
Reliable, prompt, never missing from his
ranks however unseasonable the hour. Always
friendly and obliging, and though fond of out-
door sports, of reel and gun, he is no laggard
in his studies, does not fail in loyalty to his
school and teachers.
MARGARET W. SEISER
It would be a difficult task to write a des-
cription of Margaret that would do her just-
ice. Her willing spirit is reflected in the kind
words she speaks. Her pleasant smile and af-
fectionate nature make her loved among her
many friends. The class of '37 sincerely hopes
she will find the peace and happiness she de-
serves, while traveling o'er the weary paths of
FRANCIS D. WIESNER
A friendly smile for you, a jest or two may
always be looked for from Francis. Gloom will
not tarry when he appears. However, he sees
the serious side of life too, and wastes no
time in frivolous nonsense or questionable
jokes. His reliability was proved in his capac-
ity as student manager at athletic activities
during the past scholastic year.
CHARLOTTE L. HEINDL
A bit of sunshine and good humor are the
chief traits of Charlotte. "To know her is to
love her.". Truly, she is a valuable asset to
any class. Science is her favorite subject. We
hope that ere long the scientific world will
recognize in her a genius.
MARJORIE C. JACOB
A leader in her class is Margie. Her aim is
to acquire knowledge and her marks are sel-
dom excelled. She has a sunny disposition and
is willing to perform any favor that one
might ask of her. She is a lover of good music
but it does not interfere with her shorthand
and typing, which she likes best among her
studies. Let us hope that she is rewarded with
success in her chosen vocation.
JOHN A. MEYER
john is devoted to Science and never tires
of experimenting in this field. Not satisfied
with the allotted hours in the school labora-
tory he devotes many hours of his free time
to project work trying out his inventive gen-
ius. We predict a successful career for him in
the field of science.
DOROTHY M. NEUBERT
Merry, vivacious, dependable, and always
happy, yet beneath this care-free exterior,
earnestness is lying. Because of her cheerful-
ness in helping any member of the class in
difficulties, she has proven herself a very val-
uable classmate. Her general aptitude in the
Commercial Course will be very beneficial
in the world of business.
GERALD E. BRENNEN
A plodder that will not say fail is our Ger-
ald. However hard the task his determination
to see it through will win out. He will outdo
many more brilliant minds in his future un-
dertakings. His ability to do things was amply
demonstrated when as advertising manager, in
company with John, more "Ads" were se-
cured within one week than by the combined
efforts of a dozen others.
VICTORIA M. HABERBERGER
Modest and sincere she ranks among the first
of her class. A loyal pal and true friend, a
student on whom you can depend. This se-
date young lady never shirks her duty, and in
the future she is bound to meet success in all
her undertakings. We expect great things of
you, Victoria, and know we'll not be disap-

HENRIETTA C. SIMBECK
Meet a girl demure and sweet-Henrietta.
She has ever a winning smile that twinkles in
eyes blue as a summer's sky. Helping others
over rough spots in life, she always has a
cheery word of kindness. Henrietta will mount
high upon the ladder of success as a reward
for her studious pursuits. May God bless her
and help her in life.
REGIS W. PFINGSTLER
As vice-president of the class, and associate
editor, he proved himself worthy of these
honors conferred upon him by his classmates.
Capable, friendly, obliging, ever prompt in
performing his duties and other tasks entrust-
ed to him, outstanding in commercial work,
hc is surc to please and satisfy his employers.
MARY A. SADLEY

ful in her attempts. She is a clever artist, and
her sketches are a joy to us all. In whatever
path of life she may choose Mary will always
be followed by the sincerest wishes of her
OTHMAR j. LENZE
Othmar is our class artist. His ability with
inks, paints and colors will open to him an
attractive field in the art world. Yet his talents
also open other fields to him. He is a capable
student in Physics and Mathematics, and may
perhaps choose his career among the great in-
ventors or engineers of his day.
GENEVIEVE F. HOEHN
A bit of sunshine in everything she does.
Her music reflects the depths of her sunny,
cheerful character. As a poet, she surpasses
many. Her chief interest lies in the scientific
field especially in that of Chemistry. It is her
wish to become a nurse in the near future.
May success travel with her on the path of
her chosen career.

mates and her appreciation of humor attracts
every manner of person.
GEORGE E. FINFINGER

his career, and his ability along this line in
school gives promise of future success. He
ranks among the highest in his class and does
not fail to lend willing assistance to his fellow
students. His employers will find him ever
ready to satisfy their every demand.
JAYNE F. WALKER
The crowd will make way when they see
Jayne, a member of the class of '37, step out
into the world. Her charming personality is
one of her traits. She is one of our really dig-
nified and amiable seniors. These qualities have
endeared her to her classmates.
VINCENT P. MCCREADY
Vincent's cheerful, bright, courteous dispo-
sition wins him many friends. He is our class
prophet and in his optimism has promised .1
brilliant future to each of his classmates. An
able composer, his high standing in English
class promises outstanding success in his pre-
dicted career as editor of a leading periodical.

DOROTHY M. DIPPOLD
A golden character Dorothy possesses and
her disposition is the sweetest to be found.
One never sees Dorothy angry under any cir-
cumstances. Her maxim is, "Smile
world smiles with you." Indeed this winning
senior will always bring the joy of a happy
smile to her many acquaintances.
ANDREW X. BAYER
Quiet, studious, steady, friendly, are appel-
lations generally applied to Andrew. His sin-
cerity cannot be doubted, his work will well
satisfy, his honest efforts to do what is right
cannot fail to mark his future with success.
LOUISE A. YEAGER
In our daily strife toward success, Louise is
like a sweet flower ever showing gladness and
willingness to our class. We may search day
after day, yes, year after year, but will be un-
successful in finding a type of girl like Louise.
If nothing chances to blight her cheerful na-
ture, her future will hold unheard of happi-
GERVASE W. FELDBAUER
Gervase is another of our commercial stud-
ents, and considers this the most important
course offered. He likes his work. Friendly
and cheerful, regardless of circumstances, he
is never without his jovial smile. Among his
leading traits are honesty and kindness.
MIRIAM B. KRECKLE
Fun-loving, happy an-d gay, she is always
ready and obliging to do favors for others. She
is honest in her opinions, and an optimistic
person. Not adverse to gaiety, she is serious in
her studies. To have her for a friend is, in-
deed, an honor.
Z y X.
VALERY C. HERZING
Sweet as can be, conservative, too, are qual-
ities that lie within this girl, justly. Sparkling
with a sense of humor, she has a gay friendly
manner all her own. Lost will be the school
without her courteous smile. All her class-
mates wish her success and happiness.
THOMAS C. BEBBLE
Thomas is our early bird. Every day he is
up with the lark and the rising sun finds him
already on his way to Church, there to seek
refreshment and strength at the Altar for the
performing of his duties during the day. His
example has made at least a few of us a little
more zealous in approaching the Holy Table.
On our varsity team he is one of the star
guardsg is interested in athletics generally, but
does not neglect his studies.
EVELYN A.. DANIEL
This sprightly maiden is one of the all-
around members of our class. Her impulsive
humor is the cause of many outbursts in our
classes. Evelyn is a lover of fun, but she can
work with a serious mind and a determination
which few of us possess.
JEROME F. THIEL
Jerome is a lover of literature. Exceptionally
fond of reading he is seldom without a bookg
nevertheless, he avoids what is cheap and
trashy. He can carry a conversation on a wide

MARGARET P. MCHENRY
"A friend in need is a friend indeed." That
expresses Margaret's character exactly. She
brightens your day with her bit of sunshine
and humor wrapped in blarney. Long years
ago, she packed her cares and woes and hid
them behind a pair of twinkling eyes and
smiling lips. The class of '37 wishes her suc-
cess and happiness in her travels through life.
GERALD C. HIGGINS
Our amiable Irishman is fond of athletics
and was our main defensive on the basketball
team. While he likes sports he is not neglect-
ful of studies nor a shirker of duty. We feel
he will manfully shoulder his responsibilities

Edna's dry humor and slow smile have gained
for her an outstanding place in the Senior
class. We often wonder if ever anything could

If you have ever noticed a cheerful lad
walking down the street acquiring new friends
with his kindly smile, you know Jim. He is
devoted to scientific work and displays much
ambition along this line. His projects in elec-
tricity predict future success in this extensive
field. There will be places open for him.
MARIE C. DIETZ
The gentleness of her nature is reflected in
this small girl's melodious voice. A modest
young woman, she is adverse to any word or
action which may wound another's feelings.
Though impulsive at times, a crisis will find
her weighing the pro's and con's very pains-
takingly before making a decision.

In our bouquet of memory, we hold a
thought of Rosemary who, with her sweet
smile, brightens many a sad heart. Without
this young lady, our class would indeed be as a
golden chain minus the most precious link.
Rosemary may, perhaps, have various ideas of
a profession, but the class of '57 wish her
luck in whatever she may choose.
EUGENE A. WEGEMER
Eugene is a Fine, likable character, gentleman-

plays considerahle ability.

SACRED HEART GIRLS' HISTORY
WELVE long-very long years ago, about thirty small-very small girls stood in
line in the first grade room of the Sacred Heart School, waiting to be enrolled as
bright little stars in a crowded educational sky. An identical number of mothers anxious-
ly hovered by, each near her own child and each harboring the hope that her's would
be the brightest starlet of the group. In the confusion, the Sister in charge was doing
her best to find each one's name, age, and other information necessary for future refer-
ence. After a short while, everyone having been catalogued, the room was deserted.
Such was our first day of School! The next day, we all, Qmothers includedj re-
ported in full force, and, incidentally, in bright new dresses, and armed with pencil
boxes, and enormous tablets. Everything was quiet and peaceful until, because of lack
of seats, the mothers were forced to leave. Then it took quite a while until lonesome
tears were dried and we settled down to the business of A B C's.
Entering second grade, we found that our class would be larger because of new
pupils and some who stayed behind. During this interesting term in which addition
and subtraction, and a little Catechism played a large part, we always looked forward
to Father Herman,s visits because he called us "Sugar Plums". Also because on real cold
days, he gave permission for an early dismissal.
Third, fourth and fifth grades passed into history in a quiet, industrious way, punc-
tuated with mem,ories of First Holy Communion, of weekly gifts of delicious apples
from Father Herman, spelling contests, talks from time to time by missionaries, picture
slides, plays and many other activities.
We all remember, vividly, the radio programs we used to present in the sixth grade.
To make the idea real, we would all crowd behind the slides and pull them down to the
floor, in order to suggest invisibility. Then would follow the recitations, songs, poems,
etc., "through the air".
At this time, some of the class were old enough to be confirmed after which we
lost quite a few members. Some moved, some left school altogether, others entered
other schools and upon reaching seventh grade, and counting heads, we found only twen-
ty girls remained. In the eighth year, we occupied the beautiful double desks we had
looked forward to for so long. During that year most of us received the sacrament of
Confirmation which was an important and happy event. Later, we published a class
newspaper which provided fun for us and sharpened our literary wits.
As this term neared its close, we regretfully prepared to leave our beloved school
which had marked eight milestones in our lives. But our sorrow was overshadowed by
the thought that We were now high-school students and that exciting things were to
come in our new pattern of life.

BOYS' CLASS HISTORY
N a beautiful September morning in the year 1925, a group of sixty little boys
entered the primary room of St. Marys School. Different expressions were por-
trayed on the faces of these young pupils. Some were crying, others happy and others
enthusiastic. Under the guiding hand of a patient Sister, we were soon quieted and
contented. During this new and important step in our lives we were taught the alpha-
bet and the fundamentals ,of our religion, and many other highly important and useful
things, among which were instuctions and practice in fire drills.
During our second year we were kept busy with new studies and became more
accustomed to the routine of school life. It was during this year that We had the great
joy of .receiving that most wonderful gift of Jesus Christ to mankind, namely, Holy
Communion, preceded by the Sacrament of Penance.
With the third year, ended, we were told, our elementary or primary grade work.
The fourth, fifth and sixth years showed a marked change in the treatment of the class,
we were no longer looked upon as little tots but as young boys. We were taught inter-
mediate arithmetic, had books in history, and contests were more difficult and thrilling
as competition grew Strong. Our class picture was taken during the Hfth year which
helped to swell our heads considerably when asked about school.
When we began the seventh year we had the happiness to be given class rooms in the
High School building. This year marked the beginning of the grammar grades and
was filled with work preparatory to the all important year which would decide our ad-
mission to High School after the final review of all we had learned in the grades.
In the eighth grade some of the old faces had disappeared, and new ones took their
places, as some pupils of other schools joined our ranks. An important step that makes
a young Catholic a soldier of Christ was taken when we received the Sacrament of Con-
firmation. This Sacrament was administered by the Most Reverend John Mark Gan-
non, Bishop of Erie. However, before administering this Sacrament, he assisted at an
examination on Christian Doctrine, to convince himself that we were sufficiently in-
structed. At last, after eight years of work, we received the coveted award that awaits
any ambitious young boy, that of entering High School. The Sisters explained to us
the various courses open to the High School student and helped us to choose the subjects
which suited our needs and ambitions. During this year we felt that the whole High
School depended upon our existence.
Our Sophomore year was less exciting than our Freshman year due, probably, to the
fact that some of the novelty of changing classes, for departmental work had worn off.
A new feature was that we took a more prominent part in the assemblies. Also a new
ambition grew upon us, namely to become Juniors.
During our Junior year the English classes formed literary clubs and were taught
the art of debating and public speaking. A special joy came to us when permitted to
select our class rings, and when they came spirits ran high.

Now to be Seniors! Seniors at last the year is filled with exciting thoughts and
happenings. Our class colors must be chosen. Our choice-blue and silver. Class
mottos are discussed and voted upon. The result-"Hands that work, brains that think,
and hearts that love." The flower-a rose. The Memo staff has been organized and
all are busy doing their part towards an interesting and artistic year book, class pen-
nants will be next in line. Then the day of all days in our educational program, the
receiving of our diplomas on commencement day. After this the school life of the
class of 1937 will only be a memory to be cherished by the graduates.
SACRED HEART BOYS' CLASS HISTGRY
N September, 1925, fifty small lads turned their first steps toward a new life. Fifty
eager youths, unaware of the sorrows and setbacks of life, joyfully wended their
way to school to obtain an education under the care and supervision of our venerable
Sisters. All fell in line under the maternal guidance of the primary class teacher, whose
pleasing personality and winning smile, were our inspiration during the first two grades.
After our second year another Sister took up the task so nobly begun in number
one. Here came our first disappointment as our class was divided. It seems that there
were too many for our room so eight boys passed on to the fourth room. We appreciate
the care and training we received this year and I hope that it will never be forgotten.
One of the important events during this year was the leveling down of the founda-
tion which had supported the old Sacred Heart School. Among those ruins we had
played ever since the school had been dismantled. We were sorry to see them go but
we took this blow with a grin.
In our fourth year we and our former classmates were reunited. Another Sister
carried the cross this year and performed her work nobly until relieved in the fifth grade
by our former primary teacher. We welcomed her back and enjoyed this year as much
as we did our first two. This year was marked by the loss of a number of our class-
mates. But undaunted, the rest of us kept on our pursuits to attain higher grades and
Our former fourth grade teacher was back with us again for the next two years-
the sixth and seventh. Now we were allowed to enter into contests with other classes
and we felt we really had a place of importance in the world. This nearly proved our
downfall, because we abused our newly-found privileges. Under the restraining hand
of our teacher, we forgot this nonsense and passed these two years with success.
At last we were to reach the first goal which we had set for ourselves when entering
school. We were in the eighth grade with the principal, for our teacher. This was our
most eventful year. More things happened during this year than I can Write about.
One of the most important to us, at least, was a Hre. A little fifth-grader rushedinto
our room yelling than the school was on fire. This caused quite a bit of excitement, but

Sister calmed us down and then led us thru the smoke-filled corridor to the open air.
The other boys were marched out in like manner and then we discovered that the fire
was in the furnace room. The coal had caught fire and the smoke circulated thru the
building. No alarm had been turned in to worry anxious mothers about the safety of
their children. The fire was promptly extinguished by the firemen, but there was no
school for the rest of the day.
Soon this, the last of our elementary grades, was completed and ours was to be the
new experience of entering high school. This brought us many happy hours. Our
freshman year found us making new friends and doing school work entirely new to us.
Passing from class to class into che various rooms in our departmental Work was a new
experience. A year later found us in the sophomore room to which other freshmen had
also been promoted. By this time we were beginning to realize what high school was
really about. Our ambition kept us going steadily on, until all necessary units for en-
tering the Junior room had been acquired. Upon entering the Junior room we were
told that the time had come for us to select a definite course of study, if we wished to
specialize. To the dismay of our teachers too many chose the commercial course. Most
of the boys seemed to prefer bookkeeping and shorthand to science and languages. A
happy event of this year was the purchasing of our class rings. The girls outnumbered
the boys and so the choice of design was largely decided by them.
The Senior year at last dawned for eighteen boys of our class. We were still out-
numbered nearly two to one by the girls but such things were forgotten in the joyous times
we had as Seniors. In the end everybody will doubtless regret leaving the place which has
become so dear to us because of events, associations and the friends we made during the
years spent here. We now realize that our school days were among the happiest of our
lives and that leaving school life to go into life's school seems not so enticing as at times
it was thought to be.

ST. MARYS' GIRLS 1937 CLASS HISTORY
UMMER twilight was shading my eyes as I lay on the porch glider thinking of
nothing, just smiling to myself. I swung my feet off the cushions and sat up as I
heard familiar voices and the footsteps of my friends approaching. "Hello girls! Come
up on the porch and sit down." "What are you doing, sitting here all alone on such
a nice evening?" "Oh! I was just thinking of all these years, that we've been going to
school. Picture us in the first grade. I think Gen sat behind me and Marjorie was
in the first seat. She always did like the first seat. And 'Cunnie' Simbeck sat in the
back of the room patting the pretty ribbons in her hair. How we loved our first grade
teacherl, She had a certain way about her that won our hearts. Yes and we all felt so
sad when she led us up those stairs to the second grade room.',
We soon learned to value our new teacher as she did all that she possibly could for
us. "Ah! I'll never forget how she looked the day Val sat on her desk and it tipped,
sending her belongings in all directions." "Yes, and wasn't that the year Mary Ann
had to stand in the hall for misbehaving and she stole up the attic steps in order to
avoid the ruler." "I think everyone remembers that, but we all were bad in the third
grade, and we used to hide under the coats in the cloak room."
"The fourth grade will always remain fresh in my mind. Our teacher knew just
how to handle a wild class and we were the class. 'Weaser' tried to be pet that year,
if I remember rightly." "I did not. I merely respected our capable teacher." "Oh! all
right, have it your own way, but I think we wcren't ignorant of the fact that you
cleverly presented some nice apples every day." "Gen, do you recall the time you
knocked the holy water fountain off the wall and broke it into a million pieces?" "Yes,
I think I was jumping rope when that happened." "During this year an Irish girl joined
us and we "Dutchmen" soon convinced her that this was America and not Ireland."
"In the fifth grade Sister taught us to love dear St. Joseph. We all hope we shall
have the pleasure of meeting Sister again as we dearly loved her. Ere long we were sixth
graders and had the honor of being the oldest pupils in the building. The first few
months we certainly did try to show our superiority but soon we stepped down from our
high pedestal. That was the year Mary Wehler and Victoria Haberberger entered our
class. They soon became our closest friends."
'iHow happy we were when we entered seventh grade in our cherished C.H.S. build-
ing, and how our happiness was darkened when we were transferred to the Gym. Our
sorrow, like the sorrow of all children, did not last long and when the time came to leave
the gym we were nearly in tears." "Remember when at last we were permitted to enter
once more our beautiful high school, how half afraid, half dazed, we stepped into the
eighth grade room and in a low subdued voice greeted our new teacher. That year was
much enlivened by gay times. We sponsored many little plays, scenes taken from our
history, a subject which we were taught to love. After some hard study we succeeded
in passing successfully into the ninth grade. With what great anticipation we awaited
our high school life!"

OUR LAST FOUR YEARS
PON entering High School in September, 1933, the four years stretched before us
as a vast expanse. Being young and inexperienced, we did not realize the work,
joys, anxieties and trials the future had in store for us.
When the Sacred Heart students united with the class of the St. Marys Parish, many
new and interesting friendships were formed. The first few months were spent in ac-
quainting ourselves with the curriculum, in finding our way around the building and
adapting ourselves to all our surroundings. During this fall we lost one of our sweetest
classmates, Ruthie Erich. Having learned to love her dearly in the nine years she
attended school with us, we mourned her loss all the more, but it was a consolation to
know that we had some one in Heaven praying for us. Gradually we were becoming
accustomed to our routine and as the months rolled by we freshies passed our time study-
ing Latin, German, Science, and Algebra, going to basketball games and cheering as only
freshmen can. V
Promotion to the tenth grade proved an important event, for was it not a rung
higher in our ladder to success? As sophomores our position was a little more exalted
as we had under-classmates. That year our Domestic Science Class surprised the Sen-
iors with a well prepared luncheon. The Biology Class delighted in several field trips
which were always occasions of great excitement.
As wiser Sophomores we became Juniors. We now definitely decided our courses
and became active members in the routine of our chosen work. Under the guidance of
our able English teacher, we presented a program consisting of pantomimes and recita-
tions, not to overlook our part in Very Reverend Father Prior,s Jubilee Program. It so
happened that the Academy was now used for a hospital therefore its members were
transferred to our high school. They adapted themselves with surprising ability and
soon became general favorites.
At last the senior year arrived with its thrills and worries. We now were the lead-
ers of the High School and it was our duty to show a good example to the younger
students. This was a year we shall cherish in our memories as we traverse the separate
paths traced out for us in life. We spent a great deal of our time working on our year
book, the rest being devoted to our studies, assemblies and sports. With slow and linger-
ing steps we leave this small field of education to step into the vast field of life.

X BCE A HISTORY OE OUR CLASS VOYAGE
AR in a distance, in the midst of the high seas eleven small vessels gaily moved here
and there during the summer months of 1925. In September of that same year
a smaller vessel, laden with our class joined them.
Our adventurous sail on the waves of Addition through the channel-FIRST
GRADE-found the peaceful waters under the skillful piloting of two capable teachers,
Days and months passed as we skimmed over Alphabet Ocean, then we entered the bay
of-SECOND GRADE-where a new vessel joined us and the twelfth one left, as she
had reached her destination. Here, under the guidance of a firm captain of our staunch
vessel, PIRATES of Subtraction MET US, but the careful direction of our captain
brought us safely to the strait-THIRD GRADE-as in previous years one ship left
the ranks while another joined them. This year two other able leaders steered us safely
through the storm of Multiplication. Now we had decided to rest a little so we spent
the next year on the Island of-FOURTH GRADE-where we thought that nothing
would harm us. But the earthquakes of Division, hurricanes of Geography and His-
tory, a pestilence of Diagrams made us wish to resume our voyage on sea. We boarded
the ship whose capable master had christened-FIFTH GRADE-with a bottle of
Fraction Champagne. We set sail and were on our way when we found icebergs of
Grammar and Arithmetic were in our way. But the ship's master steered clear of all
these. In the zone of--SIXTH GRADE-the gales of Notes and Plastering made us
happy that half of our voyage was now completed. As we neared our destination
through-SEVENTH GRADE-the journey proved tiresome as the waves had become
little hills of difficult Arithmetic and Grammar. Now we had nearly completed our
voyage over the-SACRED HEART SCHOOL OCEAN-but the monsters of EIGHTH
GRADE-met us, nevertheless, we conquered.
Alas! the FRESHMEN-current became very rough and required the aid of more
than one pilot. SOPHOMORE-stream proved quite dangerous to sail on. Fortunately
the forces of Modern Languages, 'Higher Mathematics and Science came to help us. The
cyclonic zone of-JUNIOR YEAR-was reached and the greatest pleasure was fishing
for our Class Rings from the Ocean. A SENIOR GALE--storm wrecked our ship and
We scampered to the life boats and commenced our journey through life without the
guiding hand and loving care and advice of those faithful pilots to whom we had bid
a last farewell.

I X glg' if
WAS seated at my desk in the editorial room of the New York Tribune when an
oiiice boy announced that I had a visitor. It was almost noon and on a Saturday
so I was somewhat surprised. The afternoon edition was just going to press and I was
very busy. However in a few minutes I went out into the waiting room and was even
more surprised at what I found. It was none other than an old schoolmate of mine
with whom I had graduated twenty years ago in the class of 1937. This particular
individual was now famous on the stage and radio as a dramatic actor and comedian of
rare talents. For professional reasons he changed his name from Jerome Thiel to Jerome
Jennings. "How are you anyway?" I inquired as we shook hands. "Good and I see
that you're not doing so bad for yourself. How do you like newspaper work?" "Fine,
I wouldn't trade it for any job in the world," was my answer. It was just noon and so
we decided to have dinner together. The final Saturday afternoon edition of the
Tribune had gone to presss and the offices were closed for the day. I asked Jerome if he
had the time to spend a few hours at my office. I had something there which I was
sure would interest him. He agreed to come and we returned to the office. I went
to a special drawer in the filing case and brought out a large envelope which contained
newspaper clippings. "These," I explained, "are all in reference to some member of
our graduating class. I always make it a point to clip and save anything I see in refer-
ence to someone I know well and in the last two years have managed to get at least one
item about each member of the class of '37." His curiosity was aroused and he wanted
to read the clippings all at once. "Wait a minute," I said laughing, "let's do it this
way, I will pick them out in alphabetical order and you read them back to me."
I handed him the first clipping and he read: "Andrew X. Bayer, executive of a
large furniture concern, has returned from Chicago where he attended a convention of
furniture dealers and manufacturersf' "James Bauer, famous inventor and electrical
engineer, has applied for a patent on a new electrical device. Details of the instrument
have not yet been revealed." "Wall Street today welcomes back one of its able and
noted financiers, Thomas Bebble, who has been studying banking conditions in Europe."
"Gerald Brennan, newly appointed head of the Pennsylvania Agricultural Board, is mak-
ing a tour of the state in a study of farming conditions." "Gervase Feldbauer of St.
Marys, Pa., has called a conference of the various Industrial Boards which he heads."
"Fire today destroyed one of New York,s largest department stores. George Finiinger,
General Manager, stated that the loss was covered by insurance." "A meeting of rail-
road ofiicials was held at Chicago last week. Among those present were Regis Pfing-
stler and William Hanhauserf' "Labor trouble has broken out at one of Pennsylvania's
largest manufacturing plants of which Anthony Herbst is president. Gerald Higgins
of the State Labor Control Board has been called from Harrisburg and expects to have
the trouble settled in a short time." "Ivan Herzing, head of a large chain of clothing
stores, announced that he expects to open a new store in St. Marys soon." "Othmar
Lenze, noted politician and financier, has taken up art as a hobby and is said to have
quite some talent." "John Meyer, noted chemist and scientist, has applied for a patent
on a new chemical which he says will revolutionize the carbon industry." "Emeron

Samick, head of the Pennsylvania state forestry today issued a new appeal for the pre-
vention of forest fires." "Eugene Wegemer, noted traveler and explorer, has just re-
turned from another European tour." "Francis Wiesner, well known contractor and
builder, has been consulted by the President in regard to several government projects."
"Well," I said, "I guess that covers the class of '37." "Yes," Thiel replied, "and
those clippings vividly bring back memories." We chatted until late in the afternoon,
then decided to have lunch together and talk over some of the memories of that grand
old Class of 1937' VINCENT MCCREADY.
HE year 1960 rolled in, finding me in an oflice in Washington, D. C., Private Sec-
retary to the President of the Board of Labor. One cool morning, while sitting
at my desk, my mind traveled back twenty-three long years to my Dear Alma Mater.
Once again I pictured my classmates hurrying to and fro, busily engaged in scholastic
duties. As I was wondering where they were located in life's work, I was rudely inter-
rupted by the insistent ringing of the telephone. Wearily lifting the phone, my wits
were sharpened by the startling message that I should hasten to the deathbed of my dear
friend and former employer Juanita Grey. After obtaining leave, I immediately answered
the call, arriving just in time to hear her dying words. Later, still mourning her death,
I was notified that I was sole heiress to her immense estate. Being in ill health, my em-
ployer granted me a leave of absence for several months. While traveling, I hoped to
come in contact with some of my classmates of bygone days.
I departed to the airport to engage a plane to Harrisburg. My bags having been
stowed away, I stepped into the luxurious plane, and my gaze rested upon the aviatrix
who was preparing the plane for the trip. After a second look, I cried out, "Is it pos-
sible that you are Jayne Walker?" A pair of brown eyes met mine from under the
helmet. Jayne affirmed my statement, recognizing me at once. Nothing could be
done then until we had an old-time chat. During the conversation, the name of Edna
Fritz was mentioned. Eagerly I inquired if she knew where she was. Jayne certainly
did, Edna being her roommate. She then informed me that she expected Edna to appear
soon as she was her co-pilot. No sooner was this said than Edna strode briskly across the
green flying Held up to the plane. After much ado, we sped down the runway to a
perfect take-off. At last my quest was begun, and two of the class of '37 were already
We had been flying for some time when the motor began to sputter and cough.
Calmly Jayne brought the huge plane to the earth on a beautiful. meadow of green.
After a quick examination, Edna told me not to worry as the injury to the plane was
slight, though it would take several hours to repair. In the distance we saw a Spanish
home nestling among a group of trees. We all set out for this home in an effort to pro-
cure aid. Our knock was answered by a cheery "Come in!" The voice rang in my
brain, reminding me of one I had heard long, long ago. With a turn of the wrist, the
door was opened and there stood Helen Cassady, now mistress of a spacious realm. She
was as surprised as we. We had a country lunch with her, and never before had I tasted

such a delicious chocolate cake. But the work had to be completed on the plane, twi-
light fast approaching, so wc were forced to leave, having promised to return soon again.
When we arrived at the airport, we were met by a Photographer and a News Re-
porter. One glimpse of that sunny Irish smile cold me that I had mounted one more
step of the ladder in my search for the class of I37. Rosemary Hirt's duty as reporter
was but a vague remembrance as we chatted on. Rosemary told me that she was the
Social News Reporter for the Metropolitan News, the Editor of which was fun-loving
Margaret McHenry. A phone call brought Margaret down to the Palace Hotel where
we five girls had dinner. Margaret stated that she must be leaving as she had an ap-
pointment with her doctor, Genevieve Hoehn. We all decided to accompany her to Dr.
Hoehn's suite of offices in che busy down-town section of Harrisburg. She was one of
the greatest surgeons of the day. We spent the evening with her, and all were happy
to be with old friends again. Genevieve invited us to come to the hospital to witness
a delicate operation which she was to perform the next morning. Margaret, Rosemary,
Jayne and Edna offered their apologies, pleading that they were forced to attend to busi-
The next morning found me strolling leisurely through the spotless hall of the
Hospital. The rustle of a nurse's starched skirts sounded around the corner of the cor-
ridor. A crisp good morning and a sunny smile beaming out from under a small white
cap greeted me. Where had I seen that auburn hair before? It couldn't be, yes, it was
Charlotte Heindl. She had not recognized me until I had spoken. After inquiring as to
her progress in the world, I learned that she was Head Nurse in the State Memorial
Hospital. We entered one of the small parlors off the corridor and sat down to chat
until the time when Dr. Hoehn was to operate. Charlotte, reaching over, pressed the
bell first two times then three. A short time later the call was answered by a student
nurse. Being asked if Dr. Hoehn was ready, Miss Heindl was answered to the affirm-
ative. We were escorted to the observation room where we witnessed the performance
of this successful operation. As my train was leaving shortly, I bid my friends good-
bye with promises to come and have a real visit with them before returning to Wash-
ington, and to tell them if I had succeeded in my quest.
To my surprise and joy, I met another pal, Viola Roth, and learned that she had
succeeded very well in her work, now being the Dean of a Young Girls' College. After
chatting a bit about good old school days, Viola asked if I had seen the Times yet? I
answered no and immediately she showed me these headlines, "Two Nurses Receive
Awards Today For Their Brave and Courageous Work During the Great Flu Epidemic."
Reading further, I found them to be none other than former classmates, Josephine Bol-
ogna and Margaret Seiser. Of course, you can easily surmise my surprise and joy for
As we were both headed for Miami Beach, Florida, to witnesss the Great Swimming
Matches, nothing would do but for me to stop over at Cincinnati with Viola until she
had straightened out a few of her business matters. W'hile talking to the President of
the Metropolitan Insurance Company, he stated that he had just engaged a gem of a
stenographer for his Private Secretary, namely, Marjorie Jacob. Noticing the interest we
had taken when he mentioned Marjorie, he pressed the buzzer and she immediately

entered. Our joy was supreme as the President allowed her to visit with us a short time.
We now boarded a train to Florida, our next stop. We arrived in time for the
famous Swimming Races. Whom do you think we met there? None other than Mary
Wehler, now instructress of the present Swimming Champion. The next morning
Viola, Mary, and I were again surprised and Hlled with joy to find another classmate,
Miriam Kreckle, in the center of a group of children, for whom she was the governess.
She was reading them a book entitled, "Children's Sports in the Tropics."' Seeing with
what interest the children had been listening, we asked her the author and found it to
be Victoria Haberberger. Thus, another member of the class of '37 had succeeded in her
Leaving Viola at Miami Beach, Florida, to renew old acquaintances, I continued my
travels by flying to Dallas, Texas, where a great exposition was being conducted. For
me the main attraction were the paintings and sculptural works. One of the outstand-
ing pieces of art was the bust of Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States
at the time of my graduation. Inquiring as to the creator of this work, I was told that
it was Doris Herzing. I then remembered how she had often spoken of doing such work
while still at school. As she was out of town, it was impossible for me to see her before
my plane was to depart for Denver, Colorado. The reason I wished to visit this place
was because I had heard that several of my classmates were stationed there, Mary Ann
Kronenwetter being a Biologist, and Edith Werner, a Scientist in a Red Cross Labora-
tory. These rumors were confirmed shortly. Being very busy in their mission of mercy,
little time was available for visiting. In the meantime, I had learned that Mary Sadley
had acquired fame as an illustrator for a nationally known magazine.
As I had always wanted to visit Chicago, I chose this to be my next stopping place
before journeying to the great Metropolis-New York City. While there I spent an
evening in a Night Club where Margo O'Day's Famous Dance Orchestra was to be
playing for the evening. As an added attraction, Louise Hope, a well-known radio
imitator was giving a personal appearance. I was surprised to hear the strains of the
Central Victory March burst upon the air. Glancing around I noted the leader of the
orchestra accompanied by the radio imitator making their way toward my table, and
as they drew nearer, finally recognized them to be Margaret Davis, musician, and
Louise Yeager, imitator. I felt deeply honored to think that they would choose our
Old School Song to play for my benefit. After visiting for some time, I begged to be
excused and returned to my hotel room for a good night's rest before starting to New
York the next morning.
NVhile enroute to New York, I was delayed three hours at Erie. While strolling
along the streets, I came to St. Peter's Cathedral. Having time to spare, I decided to
make a visit to the Dear Lord. As I entered I noticed little children worshipping also,
in the front pews, accompanied by a Benedictine Nun. When she turned to leave, she
seemed to remind me of someone I had known in years gone by. To satisfy my curi-
osity, I met her at the door of the church and sure enough it was fun-loving Mae Ham-
mer, now Sister Mary Josephine O.S.B. She told me she was very happy and was thank-

Erie. Finding that time was flying, I hastily bid her adieu and just arrived at the train
The train shrieked to a stop at the Grand Central Station. For several days, I
wandered around the city feeling dissatisfied, five girls of the class of '37 could not be
found. I finally decided to go abroad, but before going I went to a famous Architect
I had heard of to make plans for the remodeling of the country home I had inherited.
After the elevator had whizzed me up countless stories, an office boy escorted me to
the door of the Private Secretary. I stood spellbound for there in big gold letters was
printed, "Henrietta Simbeck-Private Secretary." Without stopping to knock or have
the girl announce me I hastened in to my dearest pal of school days whom I had some-
how, to my sorrow, lost track of while making a place for myself in this busy world of
ours. She obtained leave that afternoon in order to tell all she had done since she last
saw me. Her joy knew no bounds when she found out that she was going to help re-
model my house while I was abroad. I also was set at ease to know that someone who
had some idea of what I would like would be there to give advice when needed.
I had mentioned that I must get my hair waved and buy a few clothes before I
would be ready to sail the next morning. Finding that I had not as yet made any
appointment with a hairdresser, smiling she took me to a little Beauty Salon just around
the corner. There I beheld girls deftly shampooing and curling hair. The finger-waver
had just finished my hair when Henrietta disappeared. Before I had time to think much
about it she returned accompanied by a very excited lady. As I breathe, it was Evelyn
Daniel, the proprietor. She eagerly told me of her success and I cold her what I had
been trying to do for the last few months. Saying that she was going to take the rest
of che day off to help me find some of the things I wanted, it never dawned on me what
she had meant until we entered a Millinery Shop on Fifth Avenue fwhich handled
chiefly stock of the latest Paris creationsj and found none other than Valery Herzing.
The four of us had a grand time that day and when it came time for me to leave, every-
one was sorry that we had to part so soon after having been just reunited.
I had a very enjoyable voyage across, and upon docking set out for Paris at once.
The Hrst thing I did, as is natural for a woman, was to go shopping for a Paris ward-
robe. As I entered an exclusive Dress Salon, a beautiful blond approached me with a
smile. Imagine my surprise and joy when I recognized her as Dorothy Dippold. She
personally attended to my purchases and asked if I cared to call on her that evening
and take in an Opera where an old classmate was starring. This, of course, I would not
refuse as it gave me the opportunity to fulfill what I had set out to do. The star was
Marie Dietz, now a Prima Donna.
After spending several weeks sight-seeing, I sailed back to America, happy in the
thought that I had such an interesting, enjoyable and educational tour abroad as well
as succeeding in my quest which I had just about given up as lost.
I was glad to learn that all the members of the class of '37 had mounted high on
the rungs of the ladder of life as well as being contented and happy in the life they had
chosen to live here on earth. My only wish is that I would be able to bring them all
together again and learn of the trials and tribulations they had to undergo before gaining
the ositions the now occu ied.

HE inevitable moment has come when we must bid a final farewell to our Alma
Mater, teachers and under-classmates. Looking back upon the years that have
flown almost too rapidly we inwardly begrudge the dawn of that day which will take us
away from all that we hold dear. Our Alma Mater has always been first and foremost in
our hearts but more so now that we have come to realize what it has meant to us in the
four short years we have spent within her sheltering walls. We cherish the memory of
having spent those years in happiness and unity. b
When we first entered her portals as Freshmen how we envied the upper-classmen
who were about to step out into the world to enter into a new life. For us it seemed
as though the day would never come when we too, could be doing the same. But, how
the moments have fled since that day and what a different feeling we have now that we
know the time has finally arrived to beckon us from the protecting arms of our dear
What we shall regret leaving most is the guiding hand and kindly advice of our dear
teachers. To them we are deeply indebted for having prepared us for the combats of
life. Whether near or far their parting words shall linger in the thoughts of those
whom they have taken under their loving guidance.
There is nothing more displeasing than having to bid farewell to a life-long friend.
We now leave our beloved school to enter into the world with all its trials and troubles.
Upon realizing what the future holds in store for us we regret the end of our happy
school life. But, alas, we must part---so we bid Farewell!
Four years of work we've put behind
Four years of labour great.
We've striven to give the best we had
Since we entered the scholastic gate.
We daily offered to God on high
Our work for the coming hours
And asked that He our efforts would bless
And preserve us from evil powers.
And now our first trip is nearly done
Our maiden voyage we mean
We board our ship to sail again
For a voyage o'er life's great stream.

MEANING OF THIS BOOK TO ME
O each student of the graduating class this book should and ought to have a spe-
cific and definite meaning. To me this book is the last link to the unity of my
childhood and boyhood. It will act as a reminder of the joyful acquaintances I encoun-
tered while in the process of preparing myself for my future life. It will tell me
whether I have succeeded in my attempts or whether I have let the foundation crumble.
This hook will fill my odd moments with happy memories of those who have aided
me in assembling material for laying the foundation for my future. To the instructors
and superiors who have helped in hewing the stones wherewith I was to begin my founda-
tion, and to all who have aided me in laying them firmly, I owe a debt which can only
be paid thru years of toil and sacrifice. This book will urge me to pay this debt, if not
entirely, at least in part.
This book will be to me a history made and written by the young men, and Women
of my own day. It will appear as a single event in the calendar of time when these
pages are added to the history of my life.
It makes me feel very proud to be listed as one who has helped to complete the first
chapter of this history. In its pages all events of my school days will be recalled to
mind. Especially those which occurred in the years of my high school.
It will be, as its title suggests, a Memo or reminder of bygone days. In my lonely
hours when my friends are gone and all the world seems to be fading away I may find
peace and pleasure in the pages of this book. Its meaning to me my words cannot fully
express. REGIS PFINGSTLER.
To me it seems very unexplainable I'll soon be forced to rely on myself,
That soon I'll be out of school No Sisters to assist in my needsg
No more shall I turn to my classroom But due to the lessons they have taught to me
In keeping with the rule. I'll be able for worthwhile deeds.
I'll not be called to recite my lessons When I pass out of these portals of school
Nor be asked for any explanation, Into life's restless sea,
But soon, instead, I'll be bucking the world I'll ever be thanking the Sisters
With a heart filled with determination. For the training they've given to me.

EADLINES in newspapers, frequently, inform the public that the population of
the world has been decreased by auto accidents. Time and again we read that per-
sons are crippled for life, mortally injured or suddenly killed by the crashing of autos.
These frequent accidents are caused by speed demons, intoxicated or careless drivers.
The law should strive to prevent these accidents by depriving such drivers of their li-
censes or by placing a heavy penalty upon each. Poorly conditioned roads also cause
accidents. These roads should be improved wherever possible, others should be repaved,
curves should be eliminated as far as possible and signs be placed at conspicuous places,
so that the drivers can be made aware of an approaching curve, bridge, railroad track,
etc., along this particular course.
The highway should also be carefully guarded by policemen or the highway patrol.
Heavy fines and summons before a court of justice may be a means to cut down care-
lessness on the part of licensed drivers. Many cases are not being handled with enough
sternness and severity.

As at a pleasant brook I gaze,
I stand and watch it all-amaze,
And think of every rippling wave,
As friend to me my Maker gave.
And when I watch a bird on high,
As it flies about and sings,
My eyes turn toward the clear, blue skyg
I think of God Who made all things.
As I behold the trees so tall,
Grown sturdy from a tiny seed,
I cannot help but thank for all,
He's done for you and me, indeed!
As I observe the flowers fair,
The various plants and verdure green,
I'm forced to see God,s beauty there,
Reflected in such pomp and sheen.

THE RESULT OF A SMILE
MILES do much to lighten the burden of a day's work. They scatter sunshine far
and wide. With comparative ease, one assumes his tasks when his associates are
pleasant. The ties of love and friendship become stronger, more lasting. The day
seems shorter when a cheerful person is always ready to send forth a cheery smile and
say the encouraging Word.
How happy is the home where smiles are lavishly bestowed upon the members!
Mother, father, brothers and sisters-all receive the benehts of a smile. What a contrast
.if someone in the family comes home with an angry frown! Naturally, unhappiness,
gloom and discord begin to circulate.
What a wonderful world this would be, if all would have the "corners of their
mouths turned up!" All would be joy and happiness. All trials and troubles could be
borne far better if they were aided by the smiles of others. The person who smiles
would not be the only happy one, but all his companions would likewise share in his
A person with a long face is marked by his friends as a "gloom spreader". He is
excluded from their conversations and all their activities. He not only makes his own
life hard but chat of all his associates and fellow-workers.
There is no better remedy to drive away sadness than a pleasant smile. A cheery
good morning may change the routine of the Whole day for the recipient.
When you smile and make another smile, you may be the cause of miles and miles
N the road to success, there are many obstacles. One of the chief barriers is-
worry. Worry is like a cancer sore, eating away our courage and our confidence.
It greatly decreases our mental ability and often causes an inferiority complex. Although
grave responsibility must ofttimes be assumed, we must never handicap ourselves by
worrying. The sooner man can stop the spread of the disease, the sooner will the pro-
gressive road be more easily traversed.

OUR HUMAN BODY
HE world is trying to find means of caring for the modern mechanical devices. Too,
it is confronted with the work of preserving the human machine from sickness
However, all methods of care and preservation are of no avail if these methods found
are not used. Just as great mechanics, engineers must be obeyed when instructions are
given, so must physicians, nurses or any person giving medical instructions be obeyed.
The greatest earthly gift which God has bestowed upon us is our body. No me-
chanical device can near the perfection which our body has. The action and work of
the heart, brain, nervous system and the senses cannot be compared. Floyd Parsons ex-
plains the efliciency and perfection of the human body in an article, entitled "The Hu-
He states: "Engineers are prone to talk of the efficiency of modern machines. But
no machine has ever been constructed that is so efficient as man himself. Where can We
find a pump as perfect as the human heart? If the boss treats it right it stays on the
job more than 600,000 hours, making 4,320 strokes and pumping 15 gallons an hour.
We have no telegraphic mechanism equal to our nervous system, no radio so efficient
as the voice and the earsg no cameras as perfect as the human eyeg no ventilating plant
as wonderful as the nose, lungs and skin, no electrical switchboard can compare with the
spinal cord. Isn't such a marvelous mechanism worthy of the highest respect and the
Indeed, the human body is worthy of the highest respect and the best care. But,
is this respect and care given? Sad to say, in many cases, the body is abused and mis-
The pleasures of the world should be restricted to such an extent that the body
be not over-worked and that it be given the proper care. If this is done, our average
life will be prolonged, and we will be able to give a better account of our life before
God and man.

VERYONE should have a hobby of one sort or another. A hobby provides a way
and means for making leisure hours delightful and for leading. the interested per-
sons into new realms of recreation and adventure. There is no reasonable excuse to be
given by any person for not having or indulging in a hobby. There are hundredsof
hobbies providing recreation and pleasure for millions of people in America and in for-

Probably the most democratic of hobbies is stamp collecting. In the United States
alone over a million people are stamp collectors and in foreign countries many more mil-
lions. Thus we could say that the appeal of this hobby is universal and that anyone
might enjoy it. Roger W. Babson said "To encourage stamp collecting is to render a
real educational social service". Many eminent people enjoy stamp collecting which
is, indeed, a fascinating hobby. ..
This is only one hobby out of thousands. Many individuals have other strange
and pleasure-giving hobbies to boast of. They find that it relieves them of burdensome
troubles and worries by indulging in something which they like to do and enjoy. Any
person who has to concentrate his efforts on a single business or profession, especially
will find a real pleasure and enjoyment from hobbies.
NEED OF A LARGE NAVY
HE need of a large navy in the United States has been a matter of controversy for
many years. Some people want a large navyg others want merely an adequate
navy. With present unsettled conditions, the time has come when the United States
If the United States wishes to hold a primary position in international affairs, she
must have a large navy. It may be said that we want nothing to do with international
affairs. However, we can not get away from the fact that, commercially and indus-
trially, we are very much concerned in international affairs. If we cannot protect our
commercial highways, our trade with foreign countries, which provides no small per-
centage of our nation's wealth, will be halted.
Although it does not, at present, seem probable that our country would be invaded,
we must have a means of protection if such an action were to take place. Thus, again,
the need for a large navy is clear.
The industries which the building of ships, airplanes and other navy supplies foster,
would again flourish, and the personnel of these supply factories would be greatly in-
creased. Too, the United States has enough financial backing or foundation to support
such an undertaking.
Therefore, I believe the United States needs a large navy to protect its citizens
from invasion, to protect its commercial lanes, to hold a prominent place in interna-
tional affairs and to provide work for a great number of the unemployed.

THE HOLY NAME SOCIETY
HE Holy Name Society, a fine Christian organization, was introduced into the
Sacred Heart Church for the purpose of helping the men of the parish, both young
and old, to become better men and more devoted to Christ.
The movement was responded to with enthusiasm. Several hundred men of the
parish attended the first meeting. They one and all joined the Society, took the pledge
to refrain from the use of blasphemous words, curses, and the abuse of the Holy name
of Jesus. They also agreed to receive the sacraments in a body once a month on a spe-
cific date, set down by the Society.
Now that our class is about to leave school, where all were given a convenient time
to go to Confession and Holy Communion one or more times a month, it will be up to
each student to arrange for himself when he will go to these duties. There is no better
way to do this than by joining the Holy Name Society where he will find men bent on
doing what is right and proper for a good Christian life. With such men as associates
he will not easily go astray, nor will he readily neglect the duties of Christian manhood.
He will become more devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and will be more pleasing in the
sight of our divine Savior, and is certain to receive numerous graces from Him.
Let every one of the class of '37 then become a member of the Holy Name Society,
and let the rallying cry "Hallowed be Thy Name" be forever imprinted on the minds
and hearts of all.
MY PRAYER BOOK
A toy-that's all it was to me
When as a child, upon my knee,
My prayer-book I paged to find
Something there to fill my mind.
With a great felicity
That book meant all the world to me,
And after I began to read,
I found a prayer for every need.
When trials and troubles came at length,
Between its leaves I found my strength.
N0 parting from it would I brook,
It will always be MY PRAYER BOOK.

THE COMING OF SPRING
There's something in the air
That's new and sweet and rare-
A scent of Summer things,
A whirr as if of rustling wings.
Thereis something, too, that's new
In the color of the blue
That's in the morning sky,
Before the glorious sun is high.
And though on plain and hill
'Tis Winter, Winter still,
There's something seems to say
That Winter's had its day.
And tomorrow or today
The brooks will break away
From their icy, frozen sleep,
And run and laugh, and leap.
And the next thing in the woods,
We see some little green hoods,
As the daffodillies show
Their buds against the snow.
And all this changing tint,
This whispering stir and hint
Of bud and bloom and wing,
Is the coming of the Spring.

thought of a calamity that can scarcely be comprehended. And yet some children can-
not see, and a few can neither see nor hear nor speak. Think of a bright spirit being
shut in a dark prison, unable to have any communication with the outside world.
Helen Keller was not blind until she was two years old when a dreadful fever came
and burned away her sight and hearing. The remembrance of the words she had learned
had fallen away, and she could not speak. Soon she became strong and well again, but
with what a difference! The once bright happy child was closed around by a wall of
silence, and as she grew older her efforts to express herself often ended in wild, uncon-
trollable bursts of passion.
Her parents heard of the wonderful work that had been done at the Perkins Insti-
tute in Boston for another child who was afflicted in the same way as their daughter.
They sent there for a teacher, and Miss Anne Sullivan came to be teacher, playmate, and
friend to poor little Helen. How the child was taught to read and write and spell is
too long a story to tell here. Her joy when she learned the name of things was so great
as to be almost painful.
When she was ten years old she learned to speak by feeling the vibrations of her
teacher's throat. She learned several languages, and mathematics. With Miss Sulli-
van as companion she went to school and in spite of all the obstacles in her path was
ready for college in her twenty-first year. She chose to enter Radcliffe College, and
took her degree there in little more than the usual number of years. She wrote several
books and took an active, happy interest in all that happened in the world.

JOHN MOODY, PROMINENT CONVERT
OI-IN MOODY, an internationally known financial writer and publisher, founder of
Moody's Manual of Investments, president of Moodyfs Investment Service, and the
author of many books-among them, "The Truth About the Trusts", "The Art of Wall
Street Investing", "Masters of Capital and Railroad Builders", was born in jersey City,
N. J., in 1868. He was the fifth of twelve children, of whom only five grew to ma-
turity. He started school in a private pay school but this did not last long due to the
panic of 1893 which forced him to study in a free public school.
His parents were devoted adherents to the Episcopal Church. In his childhood,
small as some of the villages were, they all had Protestant Churches-Episcopal, Meth-
odist, Baptist, Presbyterian or Dutch Reformed, and each town also had its Catholic
Church. But the Catholic Church was poverty stricken as most of the people around
New Jersey were Protestants.
John never missed a Sunday at Church. His parents were High Church Epis-
copalians, which, according to them, really made them Catholics. But John could not
understand why the title in his Prayer Book was called: "According to the Rites and
Ceremonies of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America." If they were
Catholics why should the Prayer Book call them Protestants. This was one of his first

After the World War, John went to Europe to see what progress was being made in
the war-scarred countries. After traveling through France he went to London and
then to Berlin.
He returned to the United States in 1923. Like many who classed themselves with
the intelligentsia, he became "Mechanized", that is to say, he fell in line with the intel-
lectual racketeers "seeing our modern world as the acme of hypocrisy, and also losing
faith in the intention of mankind." Later he began to think about religion. The big
question that faced him was: "Was religion any good?"
Long before, he had reached the conclusion that no religion is worth taking seri-
ously, if it doubts its own dogmas. In talking with older men he was given this senti-
ment: 'It really makes little difference what we believe, all religions are good, and we
are all traveling to the same goal, though by different paths."
It was mostly curiosity that made john read Chesterton's books. He wanted to
find out if he was a Christian. He read Chesterton's book "Orthodoxy". After reading
this, the influence was so great that he read all of Chesterton's books that were available.
It was not long after he read Chesterton, that all the pagan gods began to tumble from
their pedestals. He was overcome with a great religious feeling. When his son died he
wondered if there were anything beyond the grave. The only answer he received was
from an Anglican minister, who said, "We hope there is." It was in these moments of
deep emotion that he yearned for God but he did not find him in the Anglican Church.
Then in 1927 he went to Venice on business. While there he saw the famous old
Cathedral of St. Stephan. He decided to go in and pass the time. It was the 15th of
August and Solemn High Mass was in progress. He wanted to retreat but the crowd
took him into the body of the Church. He was so deeply stirred by the ceremonies and
the Mass that he returned that evening. That evening as he knelt there he cried for
light and guidance and he remembered what Cardinal Newman had once said, "When
once a man really with the eyes of his soul and by, the power of Divine grace recognizes
his Creator, he has passed a line, that has happened to him which cannot happen twice,
he has bent his stiff neck and triumphed over himself." John had passed the line that
evening. His experience in Venice haunted him even after he left.
He knew nothing about the Catholic Church, yet he did know that within the walls
of a Catholic Church, and before the shrine of the Blessed Virgin, he had found God for
the first time since he had lost Him in his youth. He commenced to discuss the Catholic
Church at every opportunity, then he began to read such Catholic books as "God and
His Creatures," "God and Intelligence", "Religion Without God".
He slowly and surely read himself into the Catholic Church. He had met one
difficulty after another and had resolved them. Then in 1930, he went to the Holy
Land and there he realized he would soon be within the Catholic Church. Most of his
friends were Protestants, he did not want to become a Catholic any more than did his
friends. But on June 6, 1931, in a little chapel of the Sisters of St. Dominic he made
his submission and was received into the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, by
Monsignor Vincent Arcese, within the octive of Corpus Christi. He received the Sac-
rament of Confirmation at the hands of Cardinal Archbishop Hayes and he chose Saint
Thomas as his patron Saint. John Moody is still living. IVAN HERZING.

A DISTINGUISHED VISITOR
' ARLY on the morning of February 24 we were much surprised to learn that we had
with us a distinguished visitor in the person of Dr. james G. Pentz, Chief of the
Credentials Department of Public Instruction, Harrisburg, Pa. He visited the various
morning classes and at each gave the students very inspirational talks, bringing home to
them the urgent need of thorough preparation for class work by faithful, persistent
home study and diligent application and concentration during school hours, the demand
for sound character training by means of self-denial and conscientious work, the benefits
of training the memory instead of an indolent dependence upon notes and texts.
"Spend more time upon the subjects which you do not like so well or find somewhat
difficult", urged Dr. Pentz, "for these very lessons may gain for you success in later
years." He illustrated this bit of advice with an experience of his own in regard to his
dislike for Latin. "I hated Latin worse than anything I ever had to study, but I stud-
ied it and learned it and now I feel that it is one of the greatest things I ever learned",
In an interesting story he showed the importance of fixing and retaining the sub-
ject matter in our minds and not depending upon written material. "A boy attended
college four years. During this time he put all his knowledge into note books. At the
end of the four years he had a whole trunk full of valuable notes. On his journey home
he had to cross a stream so he hired a boat to ferry him across. A storm arose and the
boar began to fill up with water faster than they could bail it out so the ferryman said,
"We must throw something overboard." Since the trunk was the heaviest object, it
was thrown over. As this was being done the lad lamented, "There goes four years of
The students were urged to use carefully their odd moments in experimenting on
useful projects such as gardening, studying God's beautiful Nature, working out labor-
atory projects and in acquiring all the knowledge they could so that in later life they
will be able to look back upon their school days as time well spent.

Any form of abuse.
Each day I am taken
From a little dark case
And carried to church
To obtain God's grace.
I- am twined around fingers
All knotted and worn
I know I'll bring comfort
To my client forlorn.
I've never been lonely
For how could I be?
When she thinks of me only
As she cannot see.
RBOR Day is the annual tree-planting day appointed by every state. It arose
from the alarm over the rapid and reckless de-forestation of the United States,
and the realization of what our forests mean to our future welfare and development.
Arbor Day was first proposed by John Sterling Morton who succeeded in inducing
the almost treeless state of Nebraska to set aside a day for the annual planting of trees.
It aroused great enthusiasm and was made a legal holiday of that state in 1885. The
date appointed was April 22, Morton's birthday.
For a while the idea did not spread rapidly, but has now been adopted by all of the
states of the union. The date appointed by each state depends upon the climate. It is
sometimes a legal holiday and sometimes merely advisory to assist in the reforestation of
scantily wooded tracts or shading and beautifying towns.
Arbor Day is generally in some connection with schools to impress the children
with the importance of forestry and natural beauty in our civilization.

THE CHILD "CHRIST"
To us came He on Christmas day,
This Child of love and grace,
Upon a bed of straw He lay,
To save our wretched race.
This Child of God we owe our souls,
Our lives and all we have,
,Twas He who saved us from the coals,
His death our cleansing salve.
To Him what then shall we repay,
For all Hels done for us,
That we with God may be some day?
Be good for Him, we must!

History takes us over sparkling seas
To foreign ports and ancient lands, and lets
Our roving minds in golden fantasy
Catch many a marvelous scene in groping nets.
It takes us far away into the past:
We see the mighty Caesars rise and fall,
The heathen hordes who 'gainst the arms of Truth
Did war, and many Christians did enthrall.
The war for independence of our land
We see, and marvel at the might displayed,
Which kept our shores from England's dominance
And of our States a mighty nation made.
The "Reign of Terror", rise of Bonaparte,
Which Hll the annals of a Frenchman's mindg
The great world war which threatened to destroy
Whole nations, in our History Book we find.
And what the reading at a future date
May be we know not, but we can surmise
It will be neither less nor greater than
That which has just now passed before our eyes.

TODAY'S NEED FOR THOUGHTFUL EFFORT
HE topic, "Today's need for thoughtful effort" is one that is well adapted to the
present time. This topic, in my estimation means, that we should give a consider-
able amount of thought to that which we intend to do before doing it. We may well
apply it to the labor troubles that are now confronting us. Let us stop to think. To
begin with, there is nearly always a little misunderstanding between the employer and
the employee. In the present crisis, perhaps for the first time in the history of this coun-
try, large bodies of men took drastic steps without due consideration.
By drastic steps I mean such steps as were taken by sit-down strikers in the General
Motors plant, at Flint, Michigan. After reading various accounts of this I really be-

lieve those strikers acted without knowing what the strike was about. Merely because
some were a little dissatisfied, they sat down and took possession of the General Motors
plant. These men although in the minority, did not take into consideration the great
expense they caused their employers or how they paralyzed the automobile industry,
nor that thousands who wish to work were kept from it and were thus forced to suffer
want. I think that if these men would have appealed to their employers concerning
improvement in plant conditions, one of their causes of protest, and other difficulties
confronting them by an intelligent delegation, they could have come to a settlement in
a much quicker and inexpensive way. There is no doubt that every man is entitled to a
living Wage. The Holy Fathers have repeatedly stressed this upon employers. Should
a living wage be denied an honest, conscientious worker, he has every right of appeal,
even to higher authority, that justice be accorded him.
He may also use other peaceful means, such as strikes, but neither the fifth nor
the seventh commandment of God may be violated. All wrong to others must be avoid-
ed-be these strikers, non-strikers or employers. All peaceable, just means may be
adopted. If a workingman takes everything into consideration before acting I am sure
there will be much less trouble in the country by labor conditions.
THE PURPOSE OF A VOCATION WEEK
HERE may be several reasons for a vocation Week but the best reason that I can
think of is to bring to the mind of young boys and girls the idea that they are
about to enter life and it is now time to choose their vocation. Especially to a Junior
and Senior is a vocation Week necessary, because it is they who will soon enter the trials
of life and it is best that they be prepared.
If we take a student and ask him if he has ever thought of his vocation, chances
are, he has either never thought of it or he thinks he has no vocation. Everyone has a
vocation. And the idea of setting this week aside as vocation week, is to remind him
that now is the time to pick what he chooses to do when he gets older.
It is also true that a young man or woman who has an aim in life, goes farther
than one who has none. Vocations therefore should be given a proper amount of
thought. It would, indeed, be a misfortune for one to choose the profession of a doctor
or lawyer and later, after he has put much into it, find that he cares for something else.
Therefore we come to the conclusion that it is good to have a vocation week set
aside for the student to reflect upon what he or she should choose to do in later life. I
can see no better way to celebrate this occasion than by giving to each student an assign-
ment of some sort that will make him reflect on his vocation. If after this he docs not
begin to think earnestly about his future, he probably never will.

OUR VOCATION PROGRAM
T 2:15 in the afternoon of March 19, the Senior Class ably entertained the high
school students with a Vocation Program. Besides being entertaining we feel cer-
tain that this program proved very beneficial to the students, especially to those who
will soon join the ranks of workers in the world. It gave them many a fine inspiration
and who knows? It may perhaps be the means of assisting some, at least, to choose their

When somebody asks me the question,
"What are you going to be?"
I just look wise and say nothing,
'Cause I'm not certain, you see.
It's not that I haven't thought of it,
Daily, for two years or more,
And it's not because I'm fickle-
Though I have changed decisions before.
There are so many things I'd like to do
That I think I'll try every game,
And I just can't decide, if it's bravery or pride
Which makes me so certain of fame.
It may be youthful presumption-
That sin which the old folks bernoan-
But I'm certain, if given che tiniest chance,
I'd be greater than anyone known.
Now, suppose I studied medicine-
And I think that's just what I'll do-
It wouldn't be long ere there,d be a throng
In my office all the day through.
Or, if I'd be a laboratorian,
My name you'd prob'ly not know,
But just rest assured, when diseases are cured
I'll be the star of the show.
As a teacher, no doubt, I'd excelg
My pupils would know every rootg
But there's always the fear that the children might hear
Of my knowledge supreme, and be mute.
Rembrandt, Michael Angelo, Raphael-
Are well worth their praise, it is true,
But their mem'ries may dim through a modernist's vim
For I might rake painting up, too.
Oh, yes-I can play the piano-
By notes, and a little by earg
A simple thing 'twould be, with some practice for me
To play like Strauss or Wagner.
Or, for a more practical purpose
I could choose a business career,
My wealth would expand, at my slightest demand,
Till John D's fortune I should clear.
So, I could choose any profession,
And make it a glorious success.
But then, on the side, just to lower my pride,
I'll be a housemaid, or less.

There are good papers, bad papers, filthy ones too,
Everyone reads just to see what others dog
Some papers feature right on the front page,
Murders and good deeds of this day and age.
Crimes galore carry big headings in front,
And how they are committed is just another stunt,
Filling the minds with narrations that shock,
So that they're frightened at the sound of a clock.
The movies today are far below par,
Showing up tricks that all beauty mar.
Law is as nothing in some sheets today,
To help people go along the right way.
One press, the Catholic, is doing its best,
To help all rise to the topmost crest,
It keeps the bright banner of truth unfurled,
While sending on news from all over the world.

THE CATHOLIC PRESS
HE Catholic Press today is making a special effort to spread Catholic Literature
throughout the world. The present conditions in the world make the need of
truth vital. If we wish to find the truth, we must find it in a reliable source, such as
Catholic books, periodicals and newspapers.
In fact, the Press is so enthused in this work, that it set aside the whole month of
February which was called "Catholic Press Month".
It is the opinion of some people that this recent campaign for subscriptions to
Catholic papers is a mercenary project. These people have certainly taken the wrong
Although a small sum is requested to pay for the publication expenses, the main
object of this drive is to give Catholic people a clear knowledge of the religious hap-
penings, and to give them advice when action on the part of the people is required.
In the Constitution of the United States there are two specific liberties, freedom
of the press and freedom of religion. However, the freedom of the press has been mis-
used by some public newspapers. Hazy descriptions and explanations are put into these

Therefore, the Catholics must use freedom of the press to uphold freedom of relig-
ion. By means of Catholic papers, magazines, etc., we can answer the charges issued
by some public papers which give Pagan ideas and suggestions.
The reporters of these Catholic papers are wholly employed in this work and noth-
ing but sound facts are printed. These men have given their lives to this work so that
the "inside story" can be shown to the people who need this data when they wish to
perform an action. These men deserve a "vote of thanks" and we can show our appre-
ciation by subscribing to the papers by whom these reporters are employed. '
All Catholics should have some means of obtaining religious knowledge so that
they will be able to defend their rights when this is necessary. Only Catholic news-
papers, magazines and periodicals give this knowledge.
All Catholics should join with the Catholic press by helping to spread the need of
good Catholic literature throughout the land. We must unite if we wish to uphold
our religious rights against the Communists, Socialists, etc. Let us resolve to do every-
thing possible to spread Catholic literature so that every home will have the means of
obtaining the true knowledge concerning religious matters. Let us trust in God and
work in union with Him, the Pope and the Catholic Press.

NE of the most popular of courses offered to the students of Central High School
is the science course. The name of the course is probably due to the fact that
four years of the study of science are required for the completion of the course. The
other subjects which the science student must take are the study of Religion, English,
and Mathematics for four years. Two years of History, either Ancient or Modern, and
American is compulsory. Two years study of Latin and of some Modern Language are
also expected of the science student. German, Spanish or French are the languages
There are many reasons found for the popularity of this course. The knowledge
gained is so varied and practical that the student finds numerous times and opportunities
to take advantage of it in later life. The course is very useful and educational. It is
replete with interesting and important subjects, such as the radio, automobile, telegraph
-natural sciences and inventions in all phases. With the fundamentals of science
learned thoroughly, the science student may continue his work by enrolling in a Uni-
versity to pursue Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Botany, Biology or
any of numerous other subjects in which he wishes to specialize for the purpose of mak-
ing this his life's work. '

UR Laboratory is situated in the third story of the Central High School Building.
In it are two tables twelve feet long with lockers and drawers on both sides. Two
students work together and have one locker and two drawers between them. In the
lockers the students have all their equipment which they are required to keep neat, clean
and in good order. The equipment consists of: test tubes and rack, pneumatic trough,
beehive support, gas bottles, glass tubing, flask and stoppers, asbestos gauze, sand bath,
stirring rod, asbestos mat, vials with litmus paper, filter paper, graduated cylinder, test
tube holders, clamps and glass squares.
The tables are furnished with gas and water. Electricity is also available. Shelves
are attached for re-agent bottles, also iron supports with clamp and rods to serve the
Physics students. On the tables are ring stands and clamps, one for each pair of
Our Laboratory is well lighted and ventilated. Nine large windows, an exit to the
roof garden and ventilating grates serve one or other of these purposes. Off the labora-

Most of the students are anxious for "Lab day", so they can experiment upon some-

HEMISTRY is a subject to which more students look forward with zeal and en-
thusiasm than to any other subject. In order to study this subject, one must
have an interest in it. This, however, is comparatively easy to develop as every young
person has more or less curosity to learn about nature's secrets.
The science of chemistry, itself, deals with many surprisingly different processes
and materials such as digestion of food, acids acting on materials, carbon, hydrogen,
etc. All of us are familiar with such every-day occurrences as fires, souring of milk,
etc. To the chemistry student these every-day occurrences are really chemical changes.
At Central Catholic High, chemistry is taught in the Junior or third year of High
School. The school boasts of one of the finest equipped chemical and physical labora-
tories in Northwestern Pennsylvania. After studying this subject here, the student has
a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of chemistry and if he has a tendency to-
wards the scientific world he can qualify for the science course in any college or uni-
The majority of students are content with the mere one year's work in this- sub-
ject, confident that they have learned something which will be useful and profitable for
future profession or business.
The science class of 1937 wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to their teacher

CHEMISTRY IN THE HOME
N this age of marvels all of us must be able, to a great extent, to apply practical
every-day chemistry. By using methods worked out by the chemists in their research
laboratories, scientists are uncovering one by one the marvelous facts and relations in
even the commonest of things-things which we forget to wonder about just because
they are so common and so familiar to us.
Chemistry certainly has much to say about every-day household matters. It tells
us, for instance, why foods have to be cooked. It tells us that bread rises because of the
millions of little plants that are living and growing in it, and produce bubbles of gas
which make the dough light and spongy. It tells how another kind of germ causes
the souring of milk. These bacteria convert the sugar of the milk into an acid-like
substance when exposed to open air and heat.
The modern housewife should, by all means, be acquainted with such problems as:
why canned fruits spoil if they are not properly sealed, why cold storage preserves foods,
why cider ferments, why soap removes dirt, why hot water cleans better than cold, why
blotting paper absorbs ink faster than ordinary paper, why starch makes clothes stiff,
why bluing makes clothes white, why boiling water removes impurities, what is the dif-
ference between hard and soft water and what the difference is between safety and
An explanation of a few of these points might serve to enlighten a few housewives.
Take for instance, hard water, What makes water hard? Hard water contains certain
substances which combine chemically with the soap forming a solid mass that will not
dissolve in water. This is what makes the skum. Why does cold storage preserve
foods? Because very few of the germs that spoil food will grow where the temperature
is low. Why do canned fruits spoil if not properly sealed? Nearly all spoiling is due
to germs which get in and grow there like the bacteria which sours milk. These germs
need air to grow. If canned fruit is tightly sealed no air can get in and the germs
cannot grow. Why does starch make clothes stiff? The molecules of starch insert
themselves into tiny spaces between the fibers of the threads in the clothes and stick
these fibers together just as glue might do. This makes the clothes stiff.
Thus we see that in each little detail of daily life chemistry shows us how wonder-
ful are the things God has bestowed on mankind for his own every-day use.

BIOLOGICAL PROJECTS OF
SAINT MARYS CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL
HE biology demonstration collection of our school is largely made up of student
projects. Students interested in nature study gather specimens and bring them to
the laboratory where they are preserved for use in demonstration or for showing local
forms of living things.
Most of the specimens of plant and animal life brought in by students are from this
vicinity. When things of interest are found, class members bring them to the Science
Class where the various specimens are given careful study and then preserved for display
and class use.
Insects, if still living, are killed and then mounted. Plants, if possible, are kept in
a growing condition so as to learn their various changes and means of living in the dif-
ferent seasons of the year. Flowers are generally preserved by pressing, but if this pro-
cess cannot be successfully used they are put into liquid preservatives.
On a September field trip to Maple Springs members of the class gathered a num-
ber of living specimens for a woodland terrarium. After exploring the district as-
signed to each group, specimens were brought to the place of meeting and certain se-
lected ones were taken back to the class room. The species obtained grew all winter.
The spring sunshine is now quickening to life the plants and animals which have been
in the terrarium all winter. The ferns, mosses and other plants as well as wood frogs,
snakes and insects make one long for spring Held trips.
Many of the children not belonging to the biology class make frequent visits to
the biological laboratory thus showing that they too are interested in Nature.
Two of the student projects were sent to Duquesne University at Pittsburgh, Pa.,
to be exhibited at the Fifth Annual Science Conference for High School Teachers. The
one project consists of a number of wood specimens of trees growing in this neighbor-
hood. These specimens were cut to show cross and tangential sections, yet so, that much
of the bark remained. The name of each specimen was printed thereon and the cut
surfaces varnished. These specimens were collected by Ralph and Joseph Fritz of this
year's biology class.
The second project is the work of Aaron Simbeck, a member of the 1936 class. The
project consists of twenty-five lantern slides in colors, eleven of these showing types of
food for wild life. The slides and the manuscript accompanying them show plants
that serve as winter provisions for birds. Ten of the slides show bird houses that any
amateur can makep One slide shows two types of metal guards to keep cats and other
crawling predatory animals from reaching the bird's nest. The other three show types
of feeding stations essential for the life of birds in the winter.
The projects were returned with a very complimentary letter which read in part,
"We were very glad to have the projects which were sent to the exhibition, as there
was no other like them. We feel that you should be proud of your exhibit and of the ex-
cellent work in science the students have been inspired to do."

TI-IE NEED OF COMMERCIAL WORK
HEN we entered high school many of us debated on the course which we were
to follow. Some argued that a classicaland a science course were most important.
Many of us had other ideas and chose the course we thought best adapted to our ability
Besides, there is an ever increasing demand for able men in one or other of the com-
mercial subjects. There is no industry or profession into which these do not enter. The
Doctor, though his work embraces professional and scientific work, needs the stenog-
rapher, the typist and the bookkeeper to keep his accounts straight and his files in good
order. The lawyer must have his secretary whose work embraces the same subjects. In
fact, professional men as well as men engaged in scientific pursuits need the commercial
student nearly as much as those engaged in business. These latter, of course, allot to
their bookkeepers a wider range of responsibilities. On them depend all records, cash
and bank accounts, timely collection of debts, in fact nothing in the whole business
may escape them. They must help budget all incomes, expenditures, and give timely
warning when the latter exceed the former. '
When all is said, there is no one course that can entirely eliminate a knowledge of
commercial subjects. Let us return to the lawyerg he often needs a thorough knowledge
of bookkeeping and accountancy, as when cases of bankruptcy, settlement of estates,
and the like are referred to him.
Therefore, I consider the commercial as important as any other course in high school.
"THE COMMERCIAL WORLDU
HE commercial world is a world for those whose inclinations lean towards busi-
ness. There are wonderful opportunities open to those who will work hard and
long to attain the training whereby they may enter into it. Numerous colleges treat
only on the subject of business. In these schools one can acquire a good business edu-
cation. But first one must lay a foundation and this is begun in high school where the
commercial subjects of Bookkeeping, Shorthand, Commercial Law and Typing are
Very few students follow this work when out of school, except those who have a
desire and liking for this sort of work, and these achieve success. Business is expand-
ing and with its expansion are needed good workers who have the business ability.
Accounting is one of the higher branches of bookkeeping and is also one of the
highest salaried professions. Business managers are needed and their wages are anything
but small. The business manager of a large firm can compete with the highest paid
men of any profession.

THE VIOLIN PLAYS
The master stood 'neath sturdy oak,
Violin in hand.
His eyes were dimmed,
Peace stole o'er the land.
Trembling fingers sought the strings,
Nature paused to hear.
A heart-rending strain burst forth,
The night was so clear.
In his heart this song was born,
Mingled with his tears,
Melancholy days of yore
Love, glory and fears.
His very soul was speaking now,
Cares so long withheld.
Nature and his violin
In his sad heart dwelled.
HE name Strauss bids fair to become as numerously represented in the annals of
19th century music as was that of Bach in the 17th and 18th centuries. But of
the three Strausses who have become sufficiently famous to win a place in musical dic-
tionaries, Johann Jr., the "Viennese Waltz King" is probably the most loved if not the
most esteemed. It is not often that a man of genius has a son who attains even greater
eminence than himself, but in this case the palm must be awarded to Johann Strauss Jr.,
whose creative power was not only greater than that of his brothers', but soared into
regions of which his father never dreamed. His talent was manifested at a very early
age, but his father did not encourage it-forgetting how he himself had suffered in his
childhood from parental opposition to his natural inclinations. Fortunately for Johann,
his mother secretly encouraged his love for music, allowing him to take lessons on the
violin and in composition. His first waltz was written when he was only six years old
and called his "First Thought". The elder Strauss was a tyrant at home though a
public dispenser of joys to all Vienna, and finally, young Johann severed himself from
family ties, trusting in his talent in which he had the utmost faith.
To arouse in the world a passion for a special form of music is not such an easy
thing as it seems on first thought. National customs and inclinations stand in the way.
As Rubinstein remarked, "A melody which moves a Finn to tears will leave a Spaniard
cold, or a dance rhythm which makes a Hungarian skip, will not disturb an Italian in
his rest." To have made, therefore, all the people in the world, dance to the rhythm
of the Austrian Waltz, is a feat which required the marvelous, magic power of genius
for its performance. And Strauss was that genius. For an example of his master mind
of supreme melody, one does not have to search further than the beautiful "Tales from a
Vienna Wood". The stimulating delightful strains from this opus leaves one enchanted
and with the feeling of having really been roaming in a charmed Vienna forest.

It might be said that whereas Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven built up the symphony
from dance forms, Strauss, conversely, applied the symphonic resources of the orchestra
to his dance pieces.
In 1871 Johann Strauss appeared on the boards of the "Theater an der Wien", with
something no one had ever expected of him-an operetta named "Indigo,'. Its suc-
cess encouraged him to try another and another with ever increasing fame. Some of them
are, "The Bat", "The Merry War", "Gypsy Baron". If anything had been needed to
make the "Waltz King" known to the whole world and loved by everybody, these
operettas would have brought about that result.
It is a strange but suggestive fact that although no name is better known in the
musical world than that of the Strauss family, most histories of music ignore it entirely.
Scores of composers are treated of in these histories whose genius was not a tithe of that
of Johann Strauss, father and son, but because they wrote a number of sonatas and
symphonies, they are considered worthy of attention by these writers. Even Chopin has
often been treated by historians in a similarly gingerly manner, because he wrote hardly
anything but short pieces for the pianoforteg as if there were not as much genius and
beauty and suggestiveness in most of Chopin's five-minute pieces than in many one-hour
symphonies and four-hour operas.
At any rate, Johann Strauss' music, in its immortality, will be ever listed in the
repertoires of musicians as some of the most beautiful ever written.
VERY realistic comedy entitled "Two Wandering Christmas Cakes" held the spot
light in the annual Christmas program, December 23, in the recreation room.
Dramatic talent was displayed by the cast made up of Senior Girls who willingly lent
their services to amuse the students.
The procedure of the play was often times halted by outbursts of laughter. How-
ever, the comical incidents were forgotten when the fine moral of the story was brought
Two salesladies, Peggy and Lena, played by Helen Cassady and Genevieve Hoehn,
live in the same apartment. Because of a ridiculous quarrel they both send cakes which
they made for each other to a neighbor, Mrs. Miller. Mrs. Miller, in turn, presented them
to Olga, fMary Ann Kronenwetterj a friend of the salesladies. Olga, unaware of the
origin of the cakes takes them back to the ladies. The silliness of their quarrel thus
dawned upon them and reconciliation followed. The timely appearance of Mrs. Glancy,
the landlady fMarjorie Jacobj, Maggie QEdith Wernerj, and Anna, the maid fMae
Hammerj added to the entertainment.
In conclusion the entire cast sang "Silent Night". Thus the curtain was drawn on
another successful Senior Play.

HE Central High basketball team, under the capable direction of Father Theodore
and James Goetz, has completed another highly successful season. This success
is due, to some extent of course, to the enthusiastic cooperation of the student body.
Despite the fact that the Crusaders suffered several set-backs in the early part of the
season their fans stood by them and lent their support at every gameg and now they feel
that their fidelity has been rewarded in the victories won by their team.
As a member of the Diocesan League, Central has met some line competition, and,
what is more, was always received on foreign courts in the finest spirit of sportsmanship.
The team takes this means to express their thanks to all who have in any way lent
their support, especially to those who have furnished transportation to the out-of-town
The squad for the 1936-37 season was composed of "Tony" Herbst, captain and
right forwardg Ray Wortman, left forward, "Tom" Bebble, right ugardg "Gerry"
Higgins, left guardg and last but HOE least, "Art" Walker at center. This combination
was ably supported by equally capable substitutes. The subs' enthusiasm, doubtless,
helped to inspire the first team to go to it and win.
Among those who have played on this year's quintet are three graduates of the class
of '37. Those who have played their last game for Catholic Central are Captain Anl
tony Herbst, Thomas Bebble and Gerald Higgins. While we regret to lose this trio of
good players there is no doubt that Father Theodore and James Goetz will succeed in
building up a new winning team as they have done heretofore. T. BEBBLE.
OR the past three years Central High basketball teams have progressed greatly under
the duo-coaching of Father Theodore and James Goetz.
Prior to assuming the duty of coach of the Crusaders, Father Theodore was the
director of athletics at Johnstown. As for James Goetz, he was selected as assistant
coach because of the reputation he made for himself both in high school and independent
baskeball circles. The combination of these two men has proven highly successful.
The gratitude due these coaches can hardly be expressed in words. In the course
of the basketball season they sacrilice many of their hours of time and energy in develop-
ing inexperienced boys into good basketball players. They have fitted these players into
the position which would best make a winning combination. Their efforts have been
rewarded. For the past two years Central High has had a champion team. They have
won the honor of having their name engraved on the Bishop Gannon Trophy, and they
need only to win the championship one more year to retain the trophy for good.
The class of Central Catholic High takes this means of congratulating this year's
team and wish them the best of luck for the future. THOMAS BEBBLE.

It's all very well to have courage and skill
And it's fine to be counted a star,
But the single deed with its touch of thrill
Doesn't tell us the man you areg
For thereis no lone hand in the game play,
We must work to a bigger scheme,
And the thing that counts in the world today
Is, how do you pull with the team?
They may sound your praise and call you great,
They may single you out for fame,
But you must work with your running mate
Or you'll never win the gameg
For never the Work of life is done
By the man with a selfish dream,
For the battle is lost or the battle is won
By the spirit of the team.
You may think it fine to be praised for skill,
But a. greater thing to do
Is to set your mind and set your will
On the goal that's just in viewg
It's helping your fellow man to score
When his chances hopeless seemg
It's forgetting self till the game is o'er
And fighting for the team.-fSelectedj

THE BABBLING BROOKLET
In and out among the rocks,
A babbling brooklet flowsg
And in its sparkling waters,
A pure, white lily grows.
Round and round the trees,
A narrow path it Wends.
At times when I observe it,
I wonder where it ends.
It passes through a forest,
Then comes out where the sun
Makes its waters sparkle,
While they gurgle at the fun.
It flows onward, ever onward,
Along the same old courseg
That other waters before it,
Had taken with greater force.
Through the long and dreary winter
The babbling brook is stillg
As if Death had come upon it,
Its cheery voice to kill.
Then gently spring comes smiling,
And touches the ice and snow,
And starts the brook agurgling
And sets the world aglow.
The brooklet again is happy,
With laughter it ripples all day,
As the sun keeps smiling upon it
And creatures about it play.

WITH APOLOGIES TO LINCOLN
Eleven years ago the Senior Class of 1926 brought forth in this school a new Year
Book, dedicated to the Central High School and maintained to help and interest all stu-
dents of literature. We are engaged in the same enterprise, testing whether this Annual
or any other Annual, so composed and so printed, will long remain with us.
We are met to devote a portion of this book to congratulating those who here gave
their time that this Year Book might exist. It is altogether fitting and proper that we
But in a larger sense, we cannot claim credit for the origin of this Annual. The
Seniors of 1926, who originated here, contributed toward its success far above our
power to add or detract. The school will little note or long remember what I wrote
here, but it can never forget what they did here.
It is for us, here, to continue this great task remaining before us, that from these
students we take increased interest in that cause for which they here gave the last full
measure of their time, that we here highly resolve that these students shall not have tried
in vain, that this Annual shall, under us, have a new lifeg and that the Memo of the
students, by the students, for the students shall not disappear from this school.

A YOUNG FISHERMAN
When I go fishing I love to reel,
And I think I know how it would feel:
To catch a large trout out in a brook,
And bring him to land when he snaps the hook.
I cast and cast to no avail,
The brook seems as empty as a pail:
So farther on I gladly go,
And cast my line, now fast, now slow.
It hits the water without a splash,
'But all of a sudden I see a flash:
It grabs the hook and streaks away,
So I think he is only trying to play.
Yet I give my pole an awful yank,
The big fish hits against the bank:
But flops and soon I can see his trim
Form, back in the water, gracefully swim.
I watch as he goes and I realize,
I've lost a valuable pretty prize:
As down under a rock I see him go,
Discouraged I turn and walk away slow.
Back up the stream I sadly go,
And think of the prize I had longed for so:
But I'll not say fail, soon my pole gives a yank,
And a fish I haul from the stream to the bank.
I wet my hands and put him on my rule,
And tell myself that I'm not a fool:
He tips the rule at least by ten,
And I think I'm one of the greatest of men.

A little head upon a pillow
With tousled golden hair,
He's just a tiny played out fellow
Off in dreamland less a care.
Maybe he's playing cow-boy
In the land of dreams come true,
Perhaps he's shot the villainous crook
And upon awakening he'll be blue.
Then possibly it's, "We want a touchdown,"
That reaches his jumbled brain,
As he suddenly hits the ground
In a chaotic football game.
Could he be marching with soldiers
Far across the sea,
Excitedly squaring his shoulders
That his mother proud might be?
Then mother quietly slipping in
To give a last good-night kiss,
Breathes in her heart a silent prayer
For him enjoying such true bliss.
When the wind is howling loud, In trial and in temptation
And all is dark without, Before me I-Ie will stand.
I know my God is near me "Oh dear God, be my refuge
There surely is no doubt. Lend me your Sacred Hand.
One whisper of Thy Holy Name,
The needed help is mine.
Dear God most grateful is my prayer
And I am wholly Thine."

TO MEET GOD ALONE
The room was darkened-shades were drawn,
A gasping breath seemed loathe to live on.
Wasted of feature, sunken of eye,
The aged man lay, waiting his hour to die.
Soon a soft breeze fanned lightly his brow,
Soothed the lined cheek, hot then-cool now.
A hand clutched the bedcloth to stifle a moan,
No one can shield you-meet Death alone!
Deeds passed in review-memories were clear,
Joys well remembered, now cause him fear,
A small child's lisping-a mother's delight
In teaching her infant the wrong from the right
Fond recollection of youth's constant blunders,
Paving the way to a famous man's wonders.
Oh! For the peace that his heart had then known
He shudders in horror-to meet Death alone?
Voices scarce audible-warm hands on his,
"Father has come, Dad,"-wherefore such bliss?
Heart, cease your worryg heart, be at rest,
Here is the answer-be no more distressed.
Heavenly Maker, forgive me my debt,
My many sins caused Thy Son's bloody sweat.
Divine absolution for me will atoneg
No more need I fear-to meet God alone!

THE Senior Class of 1937 is very happy to acknowl-
edge with thanks the numerous advertisements, con-
tributions and subscriptions given for their annual by
patrons and friends of the class and school. If it were not
for these the class would not have been able to finance their
undertaking and to satisfy their ambition to publish an
attractive and interesting "Memo,' of 1937.
We sincerely hope that these patrons and friends will
like our book and will find a few hours of pleasure in its
perusal. We again thank all for their kind assistance. To
others also we express our gratitude, notably to Rev.
Father Theodore, Rev. Father David and Rev. Father Mar-
tin who helped us in securing some of the photographs for
pictures adorning the Memo.
All these and others who have given kindly aid and
encouragement we will gratefully remember whenever
now and in future years we take pleasure in leafing through
our Year Book.
