I. Stricker Saint Raphael A King has various men surrounding his earthly throne who are outstanding in many of their traits- the bravest, the wisest, and above all, the noblest of the land. These men are bedecked in shining armor and stand ready at the king's beck or call to do as he commands. Close about the heavenly throne of God, our King, stand seven archangels noted for their beauty, loyalty, and courage as well as their wisdom. One of these seven archangels is Raphaelithe same Raphael that acted so wisely in conducting young Tobias, sent by his father on a long, perilous journey from Ninive to Media to collect a debt. Besides acting as a faithful and friendly companion, this great angel gave counsel to Tobias in choosing a wife and inspired him to cure his father's blindness with the aid of the gall of a fish that arose from the water to devour Tobias as he was about to drink. 2911 A special day of the year is set aside for the com' memoration of great Saint Raphael that we may pay special tribute to him and seek his intercession. This noteworthy day is the twentyffourth of October. Besides the above mentioned traits that especially dis' tinguished this angel among Heaven's vast cohorts, Saint Raphael has the title, "Patron of Travelers." Surely, we can choose no better companion to accom' pany us on our travels than this wonderful archangel. Many a one has been guided through difficult and perilous walks of life by him. Assurance of securing this guidance is given us if we earnestly and devoutly pray to Saint Raphael. He will then surely help us walk fearlessly and courf ageously amid dangers of soul and body that we encounter on our journey to the next world. Let us therefore strive to secure the faithful guidance of this everfloyal helper, St. Raphael. Robert jacob w as My To My Angel Guardian Oh!

This angel protects both our natural and supernatural life. His duty it is, from the moment of our birth to our last breath upon earth, to foresee and turn aside the many bodily dangers that we encounter throughout life, as well as those that would harm our souls. Besides protecting us he prays for us and carries our petitions to God. Through him God communicates much of His love to us. We shall never know till we have reached our goal how many times our dear angel has preserved us from bodily harm or from the malice of the evil spirits. Our Guardian Angels are in a certain sense real partners or companions to us. They are linked to us and we to them by a bond of spiritual relationship. We should be alive to this marvelous fact, and often turn our attention toward them, by honoring them and calling on them to help us in our daily life. We will then be more careful to avoid sin and the occasions of sin. What an entrancing thought it is, that one of the princes of Heaven has charge over us, that he is our guardian and brother of whom we have the right to ask and expect countless favors. This very fact shows how truly we are members of the Communion of Saints destined to enjoy Heavenly bliss with them forever. Norbert Arnold Angel Gabriel It was in a sunny room so small That a Maiden knelt in prayer, When suddenly before her stood An angel bright and fair. Startled by the radiant light Which filled the little place, She heard a sweet, melodious voice Say, "Hail, thou full of grace."

Wifi Class History Girls of Saint Marys Parish The termination of our high school days is quickly drawing near, and ere long we shall realize the first fruit of our scholastic labors. Not one day of our school life has been spent in vain. Some days were unbelievably happy onesg others, at least to our minds, were joyless. The height of happiness which we realize as children is something which no grown person ever attains, and so it is with moments of bitterness. Many of us undoubtedly will look back from time to time over the past twelve years, recalling the various happenings since our first day in school. The beginning of school life is a time when all chilf dren who have reached the age of six, must, for the greater portion of the day, lay aside the life which contains parents, home, toys, and everything that constitutes the happy, carefree childhood. In its stead, they must submit to the discipline of the school, training, regularity, and learn that an intellect governs the body. In our case, this very pronounced change was tempered somewhat by the good and faithful Sister, who taught us our ABC's. Whoever invented the lirst grade must also have invented that teacher. On a bright September morning in 1927, about fifty strange little girls walked up Church Street, eager to see the inside of a school building, as most of us had never had this privilege, finally, after what seemed an interminable time, we came to the door of the first grade class room. Here there were many faces, but the majority were those of very bright little girls, who were laughing and talking gayly, still blissfully ignorant of what constitutes a school day. We were first called upon to register, and as this was a puzzle to us, many of our mothers supplied the necessary information. We then went to Church for the first time, directed by our solicitous teacher and the second grade pupils, one of whom accompanied each of the beginners. Thus we learned what it meant to form a rank. As soon as we were in our proper places in Church, we raised our baby hands in prayer to our Divine Lord, as our mothers had taught us, so Jesus would guide and love us during all the years we were to spend in school. Our minds could not comprehend the significance of the great sacriice of the Mass, but with daily attendance and close attention we learned to follow the Eucharistic sacrifice properly with the celebrant. After we returned to our class room, our kind teacher for whom we shall ever utter a fervent prayer, tried, although rather unsuccessfully, to make us feel at home in the absence of our devoted mothers. 32 The first holy picture was awarded to Rita Hacherl for being the only one who knew the ABC's before coming to school. An incident that deeply impressed itself upon our little minds during that year, was a visit from "Kris Kindleinf' the night before the opening of our Christ' mas vacation. He left us each a precious gift which delighted us beyond words. The next year began in practically the same man' ner as the first, except that the majority were not required to register. However, Kathleen Kronenf wetter and Eileen Samick were obliged to do so as they had not been with us the first year. The most exciting event of that year was our becoming the proud owners of report cards. The greatest event, however, occurred on May 26 when we received Our Dear Lord for the first time in Holy Communion. The years following were rather ordinary. Every day we acquired more knowledge until finally we were prepared to leave the building which had harbored us for six years. The next two school terms were spent in the Gymnasium building where two rooms were reserved for teaching purposes. It was in the eighth grade that Mary Jane Neubert, a former resident of Ridgf way, joined our class. Our next destination was the high school, where everything was new to us. Periods, as well as teachers, changed every fortyfiive minutes. We greatly enjoyed being permitted two periods daily for the preparation of the next day's subjects. The study of foreign languages was another welcome factor. In English, more composition work was required and monthly assemblies were held. For the holidays special programs were produced for the enjoyment of the entire high school. Our Sophomore and Junior years were much the same, although each year we varied our program of studies considerably, thus we found our work more engaging. In our Junior year, due to the kindness of our Reverend Pastor and the Alumni Association, an excellent Sound Motion Picture Machine was pref sented to our students. In our Senior year, after the school had secured membership with the Clarion State Teacher's College Film Library, a weekly picf ture, chiefly educational, but also entertaining, was shown. In addition, we were favored with some special monthly features pertaining to the classics. The pictures were always eagerly welcomed by the students and will be numbered among the pleasant recollections of our school days. ll Q MCD 1 ,N-i.,,m Girls of St. Marys Parish ' qcomfmap In accordance with the Christmas spirit, the pupils of the high school rendered a program in which the Seniors took an active part. They produced the playlet, "A Christmas Surprise," which was humor- ous and very enjoyable. As soon as school reopened after the holidays, it was deemed necessary to begin plans for our Year Book. To defray the expenses of this project, the entire group of graduates entered with a determined spirit into the soliciting of advertisements, and their efforts were duly compensated. All thoughts then turned to the great event, graduation. How thrilling were those days! joy reigned in our hearts in anticipation of all that Com' mencement would bring forth. Helen Rupprecht Sacred Heart Girls Let our minds revert to the fall of 1927, when our class of thirtyffive girls enrolled in the first grade of the Sacred Heart School. Some were happy, some were sad, and some were afraid. Soon our good Sisters dispelled all feelings of fear and sadness and initiated us in the work essential for this early stage of our education. Under the Sisters' watchful care and guidance we were able to proceed without serious handicaps. One of the pleasant recollections of those early days was the honor bestowed upon us by our Reverf end Pastor, Father Timothy, O. S. B., when he took a photograph of the Fifth Grade girls with our teacher in the center of the group. Our Seventh year was one of the most exciting periods of our school life. It was during this term that a Fifth Grade pupil rushed into our room, screaming, "Fire! Fire!" Having calmly been given the order to form rank, the students, under the super' vision of our Sisters, marched orderly through the smokeffilled corridors to the exterior of the building. The situation was handled remarkably well and the damage was slight. The cause, as was shortly after' wards discovered, was due to an overheated furnace. Reverend Father Henry, O. S. B. became our Pastor during that year and arranged for the training of our voices so that we could sing in the choir. Our entrance into the high school was marked by the absence of some of our former pupils and the addition of some new ones. In our Freshmen Year we began school life anew. The studies were more of a variety and we did not have to remain in one room under one teacher for an entire day. Within nine short months we were promoted to the Sophomore room. Between the covers of this ll 33 year's book is recorded the Catholic Press Rally, which was held for the purpose of promoting good literature and encouraging the people to take a greater interest in the Catholic Press. The assembly was held in the Sacred Heart Auditorium for the pupils of both parishes and the entire program was very impressive. Our junior year was very important for it was then that we had to decide which course we wished to follow before we could proceed further with our studies. Many of the pupils chose the Regular course, including the Commercial subjects. The Senior year was crowded with events. In january, Venerable Sister M. Edith, O. S. B., the organizer of our high school, celebrated her Golden ju ilee and a program was given in her honor. About the same time a Glee Club, under the direction of Reverend Father Raymond, O. S. B. was formed, including members of the junior and Senior classes. February 9 brought us the sad news of the death of His Holiness, Pope Pius XI, leaving a deep impression upon our minds. March 2, the election of His Em- minence, Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, under the title of Pope Pius XII, was acclaimed with great joy and heartfelt gratitude to God for having placed so worthy a successor upon the throne of Saint Peter. Only eight of the original number of girls remain, but they will carry the torch for the less fortunate, who for some urgent cause had to discontinue their school career. As we leave the many friends we have acquired during our happy school days, we wish, with sincere hearts, peace, happiness, and success to all. Marie Finfingev Q WP af? Class History Sacred Heart Boys It was in the year 1927 that this story begins. In September of that year a class of young boys started their first year in school, a lure to most of us to under' stand books. The first two or three weeks were sorrowful and disappointing indeed, for our young minds and bodies were deprived the privilege to roam wherever fancy pleased. But new interests soon captivated them and we vied with each other in attaining, not only knowlf edge, but boy prowess as well. Even fist fights were not excluded. As we began to grow older and wiser we thought less of these latter attainments but sub' stituted schoolboy tricks in the class room. The fourth year we encountered something altogether new, we had a teacher other than a member of a Religious Order, so we thought we would have a high old time and tried, to our sorrow, to have it. We learned that we were going to get down to harder work than any year before. At the beginning of the Bfth year our class moved "up stairs" and from- then on every thing rolled along until we finished the eighth grade, at the close of which we were honored by receiving diplomas for having completed our elementary course of studies. In the year 1935 we entered Central High to take up secondary school work. Everything was different now: departmental work, library hours, laboratory experiments, project work of our own, different teachers for various branches-all seemed so new and somewhat bewildering. During this, our freshman year we thrilled the school with two spectacular plays, one in honor of George Washington and the other in honor of St. Patrick, on his feast day. This was in the year 1936, March 17th, a day memorable to us because on this day St. Marys, as well as the entire Ohio and Mississippi valley was visited by one of the most disastrous floods in history. This year we were also granted a special free day because the basketball squad came through, as victors st. Marys My, my, how time flies. It seems like only yesterf day, instead of twelve ,long years ago that some Efty boys assembled in the first grade of the St. Mary's Parochial School. Some were crying, some with wide open eyes were wondering what it's all about and others with big smiles on their surprised faces were happy that for them school began. Soon all this gave way to the realities and hum drum of school life. Days of constant drilling soon enabled us to of the season, and were awarded the Bishop Gannon Trophy-a beautiful silver cup, to hold during the following year. As sophomores we did not cause much excitement but plodded on and took in everything that came our way. One of the greatest thrills was that the vicf torious "Crusaders," our varsity team, won for us a second free day, and the honor of holding the cup for a second year. The Junior year started with a great deal of work and study, rather more than we cared to do. How' ever, if we wished to earn the required credits for graduation we had no alternative but apply ourf selves. The classes now began to divide, as some of the students took the Science course, while the others chose the Commercial. Bookkeeping and shorthand took much time in our business course, while the science laboratory claimed the prolonged attention of the science students. At the close of this year we had the pleasure of being present at the Alumni banquet, to serve at table while the seniors, now graduates, were the guests of honor. This year we also had the added thrill of becoming the happy owners of the Bishop Gannon trophy, our award for having been the victors in the League for three successive years. At last came the coveted senior year. We became the "bigfshots" of the school and ours became the honor of being given first place in all entertainments during the year. We were the "dignified seniors" but alas, how often we forgot our dignity, we found ourselves to be only "school boys," "kids," after all. We are hoping to assume a little more of real manhood when thrown upon our own responsibility in the near future. Soon this year will come to a close, we will bid goodbye to dear Central High, will become additional members of her glorious Alumni, and hope to be worthy members and examples of true Christian Manhood. Patrick O'Sullivan Richard Fritz Class History 1134 read, write and add. Above all we were taught things about our religion which we had not yet learned at home. The Bible History pictures and stories pleased us most of all. After the first year school routine continued in much the same way as we advanced from grade to grade. New books were anticipated, new subjects for study expected, new rooms to be entered, new teachers to encounter. Some of our happiest hours ll iw- 1. we .M fm in... cs' , f , . s e 1 ...gas es its St. Marys Class History fContim4edj were those spent at instruction given by our Priests, especially in preparation for our First Holy Com' munion and later for Confirmation. Our fifth was a hectic year. We thought our Sisters too strict and were'nt used to that. We had to have our lessons or else, and we usually had them. At last we reached the sixth grade the Enal in the school on the hill. A great many old fashioned "pants warmingsn are well rememberedg yet withal, it was a wonderful year, especially because we were made soldiers of Christ by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, administered by the Most Reverend John Mark Gannon, Bishop of Erie. Next we went to the high school building for our last two years of work where we finished Grammar School. The seventh grade flew past rapidly. The eighth grade was the grade of hardest study for we had to prepare for high school. At the end of this year we had to take a compositive test to see whether we were ready for high school. We all passed and were thrilled at the thought that no one had failed. With the Freshmen year came new classmates from the Sacred Heart School and new friendships were formed. At first we were rather confused as we were unfamiliar with departmental work and the constant change of rooms and teachers. All walked about with big question marks on our faces, asking: Where do we go for Latin? Where is the Study Hall? Who is this teacher? Who is that one? By the time we became Sophomores this novelty had worn off and we settled down to serious work, at least we thought it was that. When we became Juniors, real "Upper Class Men," we began to think ourselves rather important and would have enjoyed dictating even to the seniors, especially when we could display our class rings which it was our privilege to wear from this year on. Seniors at last! Now we can tell the lower class what to do! But alas we find we have no time for fooling, because there are loads of work to do. Still there is much to break the daily routine of studyg the selection of our class colors-ours crimson and silverg then a motto to be discussed and voted on'- "When we buildg let us build forever" would be a good guiding thought for our future. The class flowers-Rose and Lily of the Valley-have each a message for us. The designing of our pennant, the editing of our year book, the preparation for the commencement program, and things too numerous to mention here, left us little leisure for nonsense or for asserting our seniority. We are now beginning to see how little we know, after all, and yet, school days are at an end and will soon be only a memory. j. Stricker Saint Michael Saint Michael, the emblem of power and strength, Drove Lucifer and all his companions at length From the heavenly throne because pride made them bold, And God's sacred honor they refused to uphold. For the sins they committed they were cast into hell, Now they strive that we too shall forever there dwell, But Saint Michael who loves us will battle this foe Defend us from evil, preserve us from woe. Then let us invoke him each day of our life And thru his assistance be victors in strife. He'll lead us to Heaven our Master to see, For all of eternity! HOW happy we'll be! E il 36 Robert Geitner ll ...I as W Class Prophecy It happened one day in the year 1960 that I wished to draw a large sum from my bank account to purchase a summer home on the banks of the Hudson River. I wanted the money as soon as possible so I went to the bank to get it myself. When the teller informed me that I would have to wait a few weeks for the cash, I asked to see the president and I was shown into a large oHice where to my great surprise I found my old classmate Bob jacob behind the president's desk. That made me completely forget what I had oome for. For many years I had been doing business with this bank but due to the fact that I had gone abroad I never knew who was president. We forgot our business and began to talk of old times, and old classmates from whom we had been separated for years. After we had discussed old times, schooldays and schoolmates for over an hour, we decided to use our vacation and part of our cash in an effort to bring together the members of our class of 1939 for a reunion. Several days passed before we received a reply to any of our letters but after that they kept coming in regularly. In a short time letters from all but three had been received. These were: Bob Geitner, a traveling salesman for the "Homey Fomey" Wash' ing Machine Company, jim Higgins, a famous deep sea diver, and Mellitus Brennan, a noted African explorer, their whereabouts was not known at the time. But in reply to a letter to the Washing Ma' chine Company we received a promise to see that Geitner would be located. As for Higgins, we learned from the Pacific Salvage Company that he was searching for a lost city of gold close to the source of the Amazon River. After several futile attempts at locating Brennan we received a reply from our American Consul at Capetown that he was due there in a few days and that our message would be delivered when Mellitus arrived. At last we were within three days of the date set for the reunion. All but a few replies had been favorable. Among those unable to come was Edward jeselnick. His letter stated that owing to business difticulties it was impossible to take a vacation just then. He must remain or suffer the loss of all he possessed. We then decided to take a run to Saint Marys, where Edward's business was located, with the intention to help him if possible in his difliculf ties. However, our kindly services were not needed. On arriving at Saint Marys we found that Eddy had balanced his books and had a considerable sum of money on hand which had come at the last moment and saved the situation. His business was now doing well so he thought it safe to absent himself for a while. Consequently he returned with us to New York for the celebration. In our haste to return we unconsciously exceeded the speed limit and before we knew it an officer of ll 37 the law was trailing us. He commanded us to pull over to the side of the road and began to fill out a ticket. When asked our names and he learned who we were he immediately made many apologies, for this officer was our good friend, Fred Lanzel, who was then on his way to the reunion. After we arrived at home we immediately began preparations for the festivities, as the guests were soon due and ere long began to arrive in close sucf cession. We had provided lodging for all in the City Hotel where we had chartered an entire floor, and had engaged a private banquet hall for this event. I will not attempt to describe the decorations, and other preparations for this festive event. However, here as is custom at banquets, we had our little speeches. Everyone was called on to relate some of his experiences during the past years, and tell how the world had used him after school days were over. From these little talks we learned that jimmy Kronenf wetter was the director of the "Swinging Sailors," a world popular orchestra, Mark Smith was an engineer employed in the General Motors Plant, Norbert Arnold, who had taken to golf while yet in school, was now a professional champion and instructor, Robert jacob was the president of the "Wegipyou" Bank, New York, Fred Leithner was the owner of a fasionable summer resort, George Fritz was an Army test pilot who obtained his posi' tion by first proving his skill as a cadet at West Point, John Mullaney was an artist famed for his portraits of great personages, and Mellitus Brennan, as you learned before, was a famous African explorer. James Stricker was the manager of the "Drive In and See It" theater, Tron Valentine, the athletic director in Yale College, Edward jeselnick, the owner of the "Quality Food Market" in Saint Marys, Adolph jeselnick, owner of a large series of Bowling Alleys, Robert Geitner, as a traveling salesman, had visited practically every country on the globe, James Higgins, as a deep sea diver, had salvaged treasures lost since pirates domineered the broad seas, Pat O'Sullivan gloried in being possessor of a large fleet of Motor Transports, Dick Fritz was foreman of a Dude Ranch. Last, but not least, Fred Lanzel took the floor, but as his fame had preceded him, long applause greeted him as soon as he arose. "Big Sttqopn Lanzel of the State Troopers is known every' w ere. Before parting at the close of a twofday celebraf tion, which was the happiest day we had had in years, we all agreed to meet annually at a stated place, on this date, for a class reunion. After all my friends had departed to their work, I returned to my laboratory to continue my work on an invention that I hoped would revolutionize the television industry. Claude Wilhelm -, sa Mft Editorials Truth Truth is the most valuable asset in life for time and for eternity. God is truth, He promised the Spirit of Truth to abide with the Church. He thus guarantees the infallibility of His Vicar on earth. Before truth all doubts vanish, all groping in the darkness of uncertainty ceases, and the mind feels at ease. Then why should we not love truth? Why should we ever let a falsehood pass our lips? Holy Scriptures says that "The devil is the father of lies." Even among men who profess no faith the liar is despised. In conduct of law the witness must swear Love The first and greatest commandment is: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy Godf' the second is like to this: "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." If this would be taken to heart by every man there would be no fear of war, hatred, destruction and other calamities that now hold the world in their grip. There would be brotherly love between races, neighborliness between adjoining nationsg friendly hands reached across the seasg universal peace. True, this love need not extend to all in equal degree. Next to God we would naturally rank our parents first in our affections. Family ties and friend' ship bonds would still remain the strongest. The measure for the love of others is given us by God to speak the truth. Perjury is followed by severe penalties. Were truth to fail courts could not func' tiong statesmen could not be trusted, business would be at a standstillg documents would have no valueg universal mistrust would followg all peace and happif ness would cease, and life on earth would become intolerable. Let us then try always to be sincere and upright in our dealings with others and thus help to estabf lish confidence among men. Mark Smith of Man Himself when He tells us, Never to do to another what we would not have others do to us. We show great love of neighbor when an enemy is in danger and we perform some act to save him, even at the risk of our life. Christ Himself has said, "Greater love hath no man than to give his life for another." He showed this love for us when He gave His Life that we might be saved, and when dying, at the hands of His enemies, He prayed: "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." Truly would universal peace be ours today were we to follow His teaching: "Love thy neighbor as thyself." Frederick Leitlmer Dangers of Dictatorship We read so much about the conditions of Germany and Russia which are terrible examples of totalitarian dictatorships. We see the conditions of these counf tries under the tyrannical powers of Communism and Fascism. They have destroyed liberty, abolished free speech and press, and treat their subjects as slaves. We see these things in print every day but we fail to comprehend fully that the selffsame dangers are threatening our country on every side. People may say that we are safe, that no such thing could happen here in the United States. But they are wrong, much is happening here in this land of free' dom. There are many organizations sponsored by Communism, Fascism and Nazism working like ter' mites at the frame work of our country, seeking to overthrow all principles of democracy and to establish ll 38 a dictatorship. Under the fair name of "Democracy" the Communists disguise their aim at establishing what in reality is "Stalinism," a dictatorship even worse than the others. Some of these groups have been so bold as to hold public meetings, challenging the government to stop them. To remove these perils more effort than plain speech is needed. What is necessary is action. We must work more energetically against them than they are working against us. We must be conscienf tious, and elect to office only those men who have the welfare of our country at heart, and are willing to work for this. Above all we must pray that Almighty God may protect this land of ours that it may ever remain the "Land of the free and Home of the brave." Mark Smith a ...masiamwwaga .wf-wmswmlemwaqwewf " ""' ...a sa My Staying At Home When reference is made to a person's staying at home, it often brings with it visions of the aged and inlirm, the shutfins, the unsociables. Yet, there are many persons, who stay at home as often as the opportunity offers because of the attachment they have for that loved abode. Like virtue, staying at home has its own reward. The kind of home one has, its size, or magnihcence, is of slight importance. One does not need a palace to make life worth living. For the boy or girl with a wandering spirit, it is not easy to learn the art of staying at home. It requires much time and patience, as do all great works. If he or she would persist in overcoming the desire of roaming, home would, in a brief space of time, prove to be the wonderfulplace it really is. A person should spend onefhalf to twofthirds of his daily twentyffour hours under the roof of his own home. He has only one home and if he wishes it to be a happy abode he must do all he can to make it so. He has a reasonable part to play on the "Allf offusfatfhome Team," and if the team is going to make good, he must play his part. No team, no club, no family is worth its salt or will make good unless its members uphold the practicing of good turns, lend' ing a hand, going shares, generosity, teamwork, friendliness, obedience, trustworthiness and honor, fair play, and a square deal. Let us all try to make our homes more cheerful by our presence, and strive to do good, for after all, is not the foundation of virtue laid athome? Rose Herbst Life ls What We Make It The old adage, "Life is not a bunch of roses" can be argued for or against at will. If we perform mis' deeds, or if we continually harp on the acts of some person, or on what does not fully satisfy our own whims and fancies, we are likely to find life a bundle of brambles rather than roses. If, however, we F139 employ every moment of our life doing some thing worth while, either for ourselves or for others, we will find happiness ourselves and will make the lives of others more pleasant. Thus roses will delight us more frequently than thorns will prick. Robert jacob ll ... si? WD Character Character is the product of daily, hourly actions, words, and thoughts, daily kindnesses, sacrifices for the good of others, and struggles against temptations. A man has character when he is conscientious, when he is not moved by every impulse or emotion but by a will to do what is right. A part of a person's character is born with him and the other part is built during his growing years. The requisites for char' acter can be learned from others, but the actual carving must be done by the person himself. It requires a variety of experiences with all types of people to develop character. There are many qualities required to make up a sterling character, some of which are: simplicity, orderf liness, honesty, courage, and reliability. Simplicity should predominate in our present day youth. Purity, goodness, and simplicity are indisf solubly united. This should be shown in dress, words, and actions. Perhaps the most important molder of character is honesty. Honesty means far more than refusing to steal or to tell a lie. There are many ways of cheating oneself as well as others. A person may cheat himself by letting another persuade him to do what he knows is wrong. It requires courage to be honest, weakness and fear are behind dishonesty. The next step in building character is reliability. This is a quality stressed in the training of young business men and women. One who has acquired reliability possesses a fine and valuable asset. When one buys a car, a radio or other article, he expects it to be ready for use when he wants it without first ref pairing or improving it. He wants it to be reliable. So it is with human machines. When a person assigns a certain task or work to be performed he expects it to be done in the time and manner indicated. Order, Heaven's first law, is necessary in carrying out one's duties. Preservation of order is one of the indisputable conditions of a pleasant home. There must be a place for everything and everything must be put in its place. Order is an important factor also in the oflice. The better housekeeper the business man is today, the more certain he is of eliminating costly mistakes and of having all the facts he needs where he can easily reach them when the need arises. Orderliness is evidence of an eflicient workman. Reading must not be eliminated from the qualities of a good character. The inspiration of a single book has made saints, teachers, philosophers, authors, and statesmen. On the other hand, the demoralizing effects of one book have made criminals and thieves. Many youths and adults now in prison trace the beginning of their downfall to the reading of a bad book. Some books are inspiring, every page and sentence tends to stir higher motives, while others tend to weaken character and banish all morals. It has often been said that a man's character is shown by the books he reads. Character is often confused with personality and reputation. Personality is the sum of traits and ap' pearances in an individual that attract or repel others, reputation is the opinion others hold of a person. It may be injured by others but the only way by which a character can be injured is by the individual himself. Therefore, the best trait of character that everyone may acquire is to do the very best he can at all times, regardless of the handicaps under which he may have to labor' Helen Kerchinsk Mother Who fondled us with loving care And washed our face and combed our hair?

One of our radio speakers has said that many an American home is but a garage with a bedroom in it. Some people have almost convinced themselves that this is all a home stands for. They never stop to realize what the Word home meant to their ancestorsg they are too modern and sophisticated to stay at home except when there is an absolute necessity for it. Their ideas, of course, are all erroneous, and I might add, ridiculous. To everyone, a home should be an earthly heaven where its members live in peace and concord. There should be love, respect, obedience, reverence, and loyalty. The children should be dutiful to their parents, and their parents in turn should be sympaf thetic, understanding, loving, yet not too lenient. When parents are too lenient with their children the boys are very apt to become "StreetfCorner Cadets," an appellation often applied to loiterers on the street corners, who waste their time annoying girls and others who happen to pass by, or "FlapperfFanny" girls who paint, overdress, and flirt when given the slightest opportunity. If these children had a home properly presided over by loving parents deeply interested in them, they would not be seen on the streets so frequently nor in dangerous places of amusement. There are numerous ways in which girls and boys can be kept busy and happy about the home so that they will not long for places and occasions that are far from helpful in securing their eternal salvation. Among these are the reading of clean, interesting books and listening in to good broadcasts. Home concerts, parlor games of various kinds, family gather' ings of friends and neighbors, and an occasional so called "party" for children and young folks as well as old, with their little surprises, afford good and Wholesome fun for all. At the same time the dangers of questionable friendships can thus be averted and parents as well as children will be spared many after regrets.

D. 1226. At the age of five he entered school, "where as a silent, meditative boy, he made quick progress in his studies and also in his love for God. He never joined in the thoughtless merriment and childless amusements of companions, practiced fraternal charity, and was known to use his influence to draw to their duty some of his companions who had gone astray. As a child he spent hours in silent prayer, so that all 'wondered at his power and holinessf "From his first dawn of reason he loved only what was pure and good." "He never turned from the narrow and steep, rough and thorny way of life, but always walked in the Royal Road of the Cross." In his twelfth year he was sent to a University. There some of his fellowfstudents tried to draw him into their own vicious habits, but their endeavors were useless for he possessed powers within his soul sufficient to preserve him from all dangers. To preserve his purity, amidst the great dangers by which he was surrounded, he placed himself under the protection of Mary, Queen of virginal hearts. He kept constant guard over his eyes and forbade him' self to look upon anything which could in any way sow the seeds of unchaste desires in his heart or excite his imagination. He also fled all the gaities and idle amusements of those of his own age, and lived in as great retirement as possible. The rarest gifts of intellect were combined in him with the greatest piety. Prayer and loving contemf plation of the Cruicified Savior had taught him more than study. His singular devotion to the Blessed Sacrament shines forth in the Office and hymns for Corpus Christi which he composed. To the words miraculously uttered by a crucifix at Naples, "Well hast thou written concerning Me, Thomas, what shall I give thee as a reward? ' He replied, "Naught save Thyself, O Lord!" It was not surprising, then, that St. Thomas whose heart was so pure and so free from all earthly affection, should have advanced so rapidly in his studies. He was very humble, and sought rather to hide his talents from his fellowfstudents, than to exhibit them, as is so natural to youth. But all his endeavors to shun applause could not hinder his acquiring a brilliant reputation. As a result of his frequent visits to the Church of the Dominican Friar Preachers, he grew to love the order and begged for admission, which request Was gladly accorded him. After his ordination Thomas taught with distinction at Rome, Paris, and Naples. From the period of his promotion to the doctorate at the age of thirtyfone, to the day of his death, seventeen years later, he was incessantly engaged in teaching. It was natural that his sheer purity and saintliness should draw young men around him. Wherever he taught, crowds of students flocked to hear him. Under the light of his teaching many masters flourished. The Church has ever venerated his numerous writ' ings as a treasurefhouse of sacred doctrine, while in naming him the Angelic Doctor, she has indicated that his science is more divine than human. Rightly, therefore, do Catholic schools take Saint Thomas as their patron and hold him up for the ad' miration, encouragement, and imitation of their youth. Alice Hanes My Changed Ambition Now that I am a senior in High School, about to graduate, and must choose a career for myself, I look back over my boyhood days and see with amusement all the careers that I once hoped to have. Yet how very serious those thoughts and intentions were then! My first ambition was to be a noted physican. To be able to perform the most skillful and delicate operaf tions and be acclaimed the world's most distinguished surgeon seemed the best this earth could offer. Next I thought I'd be a "Mountie," that is a member of the Northwest Mounted Police, who brave the trials and hardships of the cold North, but have the reputation of "always getting my man." Then my ambition changed, and I wanted to bef come a Cadet at the West Point Military Academy. After graduating there I would become a Second Lieutenant, and, in case our country ever got into war, I would be able to be at the head of my company and win many victories. 43 Again, my ambition changed and I wanted to be a millionaire, so that, I would have enough money to buy anything my family or I would want. I also thought of all the good I could do by having a great amount of money, such as aiding poor and needy families, building homes, asylums, churches, etc. Ere long I had ambitions to become an outstanding football player. I wanted to become an AllfAmerican, to be noted for my passing, punting, and blocking, I wanted to thrill the thousands of fans, who watched me play on the gridiron, by making touchdown after touchdown and defeating all rival teams. Now, I ask whether any of these careers is mine? If not, what does God want of me? The best thing I can do is hope and pray that God will direct my foot' steps along the right road and that I may choose an honorable career in accordance with His will.

Fritz They Did It Alone "Yes, things are in a terrible state, but what can one man do?" How often have you heard these words? I can safely wager that you have heard them very many times in your life, but have you ever given the subject much thought? If everyone would say, "What can one man do?" the world would be at a standstill, there would be no progress and probably no civilization. In every century and generationg however, there are some persons, who are courageous enough to forge ahead, as Longfellow expresses it, they "leave footprints on the sands of time." Olivia and Miranda Hill, although poor, were able to clean up the slums of London. From their little experiment, grew the international movement to clean up the slums of the world. In the eighteenth century, john Howard, seeing the foul conditions in the local jail in his native England, began a onefman crusade, which within a year, brought reforms in the penal system. After Mr. Howard's death, his work was continued by Elizabeth Fry, the wife of a London merchant. Her influence was felt in all parts of the world. In our own America, Clara Barton, a schoolteacher, paid no attention to the public opinion which was against her, but instead she began the American Red Cross, which has saved millions of lives in each disaster. 44 Another American, Ernest K. Coulter, believed that young delinquents needed a guiding friendship, so he began his Big Brother Movement, which has given indirect guidance to more than 16,000 boys, and only three or four per cent ever again appear in court. Louis Braille and Booker Washington were also men who left "footprints on the sands of time." Braille, blind himself, gave the world the Braille system, which has enabled thousands of blind people to read. Booker Washington, a housefservant, started Tuskegee Institute, which has trained thousands of Negroes to be skilled workmen and better citizens. The exhibition of such courage is contagious. One man or woman raises a banner and thousands enlist. Little movements which are started locally become worldfwide. For only in this way can insurmountable obstacles which afflict our activities, like war, poverty, disease, and ignorance, be surmounted, thanks to one lifted voice that first becomes a clamor and then an irresistible power. Since the men and women who did such amazing things, relied, principally, on their own brave spirits, why cannot we, when civic, personal or other im' portant problems arise, take up the good cause and help to remedy conditions? Let us remember, "One is a majority with God." Bonita Fleming l Q-F., .. .

Named by the early German Catholic settlers. Founded 1842." just beyond the sign you see the beautiful town of Saint Marys. On the same hill, as you enter the town, you see one of the most renowned landmarks in the western part of the state, the "Old Hospital." Many people call it, "The Old Monastery," which purpose it served for many a year, although at one time it had been chartered as, "St. Gregory's College." In the early days, the town was to center about this spot, and Church and school, as well as a Sisters' Convent, were erected here. A large barn, a grist mill, and a sawmill also were in the vicinity. However, the railroad depot soon caused the town to shift east' ward and churches, schools, and Priests' residence followed in their wake. The old monastery was given over to a caretaker. For a time it served as a Retreat House for diocesan priests. Later it was turned into a hospital known as "The Andrew Kaul Memorial Hospital" because it was remodeled and equipped by the Kaul family. A fire, which broke out in the fall of 1935, destroyed this, and as you come in along the State Highway, you see but the charred ruins of what was once a stately, imposing structure. Built in 1867 of cut stone hauled by oxfteam from nearby "Silver Creek" and vicinity, the honest walls are fully two feet thick. In spite of the ravages of fire and exposure to the extremes of weather conditions these walls, of the Even The Diamond There are some people, who after having acquired a certain amount of education, think that no future studying is necessary. Neither do they take advice on how they may increase their knowledge. Some years ago, a certain youth, who attended high school, was considered to be the most intelligent boy in his class, and due to the good use that he made of his talents, he graduated with high honors. Later, he pursued his studies with the intention of becoming a business executive, and while at college he was much admired on account of his unassuming manner and his condescension to the students whom he greatly excelled in studies. After having completed his college course he was highly recommended and received the position to which he had aspired, that of business manager of a large firm which had been just established. Because of his initiative and unselish nature, the establishment grew to be a great concern. However, as years passed, the young man changed considerably. Day by day he took a greater interest ll45l once famous structure, still stand in almost perfect condition amid their picturesque surroundings. Sorf rowfully, people often gazed upon them, and wondered whether they would be doomed to total destruction. They loved the old "landmark" and found pleasure in listening to its early history as related by the early settlers. Built, as it was, only eight years after the Drake well, when the oil lamp was yet uncertain, there are men and women still living in the region of Saint Marys who recall when on dark nights candles glowed through the monastery windows. Recently we have heard with joy that arrangements have been made for the restoration of this building. Nothing in the outward appearance of the structure is to be changed. The "Old Landmark" remains as it was, but on each end there will be an addition one story lower than the original midfstory structure. The fine old building surely deserves preservation, and as of old it will nobly stand upon the hill so reminf iscent of the early days of historic Saint Marys, founded by German Catholic settlers from Baltimore and Philadelphia as a Catholic home where they could practice their religion in peace, and rear their children in the Faith, unmolested by parties and factions inimif cal to the Church.

Men who were eager to add to their store of knowledge outranked him, and his technique in carrying on the business affairs was no longer with the times. This was repeatedly brought to his attention, but he waived aside all suggestions of his having to acquire new knowledge. However, one day while sitting in his oflice, he picked up a little book entitled, "Even the diamond must be polished." Those words set him thinking- perhaps he, too needed further polishing. Acting upon this thought he availed himself of every opportunity wherein he could promote his educational possibilities. In this way he became more and more efficient and was truly acclaimed a great business executive. Kath leen Kroncnwcttef ss is no .......M.....i. ' ' M155 I N Y Sv-nk . A Prayer Lord, here before Thy altarfthrone Oh! hear, dear Lord, this urgent plea I kneel in deep contrition, To change my sinful life And beg of Thee with humble prayer And with Thy light, O lead me on To grant my one petition. Through trouble and through strife. Lord, grant my prayer, I humbly ask That peace may pave my way, And that I soon may see Thy face In glorious, endless day. Edith Meyer Sincerity Many leaders in the vast number of commercial and industrial concerns have attained their enviable posif tions in rank and salary because of their sincerity. When reverses arise, as they are bound to do in each and every choice of life's opportunities for a livelihood, those who are truly sincere acknowledge the fact, and work to combat the influences tending to disrupt the smoothness of things. Sincerity in small matters, cultivated in childhood, leads to sincerity in more important affairs in maturity. The pupil who is taught to be sincere with himself, with his teachers, and with his comrades will be sucf cessful in life and may hope to be the industrial magnate of tomorrow. The sincere youth is sought and admired by all without exception. He is chosen to represent his classmates in all their undertakings, because his sincerf ity permits him to be relied upon to do his best in all things whether trivial or important. Sincerity is the magnet which draws men to itself, and is the quality of character by which man draws near to God, his Creator and Redeemerg hence, all should earnestly strive to cultivate this selffrewarding virtue which inevitably leads to success in both temporal and spiritual relationships. Rita Hacherl The Happy Home All homes should be made a paradise on earth. Religion is the basis of a happy home and all who wish to be possessors thereof must love God, keep His commandments and those of His Churchg pray daily and be honest, fair, and sincere in all their actions. Not only must there be union among the members of the household but they must also be affectionate and considerate toward each other. Love in a house' hold is as necessary for the maintenance of peace, comfort, and prosperity of the home, as rain and dew are necessary for the fertility of the land from which the fruits of the earth are produced. The members of the home may develop strong characters by performing daily acts of kindness, of selffdenial, and by being obedient to those in authority. 46 Some of the virtues and qualities of every household are a lively faith, a piety full of sweetness and modesty, a generous hospitality, holiness of life, and innocence of conversation. Those things that make a home worth while are lending a helping hand, sharing the things we have, generosity, friendliness, obedience, trustworthiness, honor, fair play towards all. Peace is very essential to every wellfregulated home. Strife is the destroyer of all happiness. The members of the household must strive to have peace with God, peace with their neighbors, and peace with themselves. - Mildred Cheatle ll fr., ff 2 XX L X xv 71 VX fvvzm 'Q' X X ifx 'ffm' 5-wa, s-+'.

MAIKYS if 47 ll .L is My Christmas Decorations St. Marys delights in doing things that makes life in the home town pleasant, and proves an attraction to others from out of town. Among these are her Christ' mas decorations. Every year, as the great feast of the Nativity approaches, homes, business and public build' ings as well as entire streets assume a festive appear' ance. People vie with one another each trying to outdo the other in the beauty of the decorations of homes and other buildings, while the town subscribes funds for the decorating of the diamond-the public center of town-and the thoroughfares. Festoons, colored strings of lights, electric stars, mottoes, glitter' ing trees ablaze with lights-lights! lights! lights! in windows, on porches, on house tops, among branches of trees-lights everywhere! Through the efforts of the American Legion, ade' quate funds were raised during this Christmas to buy evergreen trees and other necessaries for decorating the streets, diamond and community property, while the Hygrade Sylvania Corporation donated hundreds of lights which were strung by employees of the Elco Electric Company. The West Penn Power Co. supf plied the power for the lights free of charge. From December first until after New Years these lights were turned on every night and made the streets bright as day, and glorious to look at. These numerous lights and the artistic decorations of buildings add much to the impressiveness of the great feast of Christmas, and are a constant reminder to the people that Christmas is near, or has come, and make a holy setting for the birth of the Infant Savior. Even after all the decorations have been removed we keep their beauty before us, as in the accompanying picture, by preserving photographs of these illuminaf tions in our albums, and so relive some of the joys of this season. j. Higgins Patron of Aviators The instrument panel gleams softly in the half- gloom inside the silverftipped plane, rushing through the growing dusk to its destination. All around the flying ship lurks the shadow of death, but the spirit of a saint who lived seven hundred years ago, hovers over that modern airfman. St. Francis of Assisi, he, who stopped to preach to the birds, is the patron of the modern birdmen. It is fitting that he, who was not afraid to touch a leper, should be the protector of the brave men who fly. At Riverside, California, there is a chapel dedicated to Saint Francis. In this chapel is a statue of the saint with his hands outstretched towards the birds and the birdmen. Roscoe Turner, Sir KingsfordfSmith, Amelia Earhart, and many other famous flyers stood mutely and alone before the statue ere they began their perilous flights. Many of them returned but some never again set foot on their native soil. Here aviators find that faith and confidence which enable them to go into the night behind a whirling propeller, perhaps to meet death in the next instant. Bonita Fleming Americanism The basic principle of Americanism is our unparallel' ed Constitution. This unimpeachable guide is the most important factor in preserving our liberty, and defend' ing this beloved country from the horrors of Fascism, Nazism, and-perhaps the most hazardous-Com munism. The means of this end: If the American people want the guardianship and privileges afforded them by the Constitution they must pledge to it, and to the institutions it has established, their strong support, and extend to our Government a spirit of true American patriotism. The bloody footfprints in the snow at Valley Forge attest to the hardships and sufferings that gave us the "Stars and Stripes." What American citizen does not have a profound respect for "Old Glory" that was born of the blood and daring of that historic battle? Who, that knows the significance of those glowing 48 colors, can have anything but love for our national banner? We know of the struggle involved in having that banner recognized as that of a great new nationg we should, therefore, be eager to keep it waving. Let us often call to our mind and to our lips the beautiful words of the pledge of "allegiance to the flag and the Republic for which it stands-one nation indivisible with liberty and justice to all." What European nation can parallel an American's privileges? Italy and Gerf many control the press and Religion, bloody Russia cannot even guarantee its people the traditional black bread and coffee. Let us always cherish this "land of the free" and confirm its boast of "home of the brave" by unflinchf ingly combating the "isms" that plague Europe. M.

H49 of 'Q Mit ,nn-,L Loyalty to the Constitution Loyalty means allegiance to one's sovereign or counf try. All through the ages we have examples of man's loyalty to kings- and emperors, God and country. We, the people of the United States, as possessors of the Constitution, are partakers of the greatest political inheritance ever transmitted from one generation to another and in this document we have something to which we constantly owe loyalty. We must realize that this grandest heritage of earth's martyrs came to us, not only through the business tact and prudent foresight of our sires, but by years of toil and suffering, by the sacrifice of precious blood, and the blessings of a noble ancestry. It is our Constitution, not only to enjoy, but to foster and protect, and to use as a means of retaining a dwelling place for the purest, fairest, best of earth's humanity. Loyalty to our Constitution imposes duties, oblif gations, and responsibilities. We should respect our country, love its ilag, be loyal to it in time of peace and be prepared to defend it in time of need. Woodrow Wilson said, "The way to be patriotic in America is not only to love America but to love the duty that lies nearest to our hand and know that in performing it we are serving our country." The responsibilities to the Constitution are deep' seated, and at the present time grave. As one enters New York harbor one may look upon the Goddess of Liberty which a great nation is supposed to hold. Today, America holds the torch of liberty for all the world. If that torch should perchance fall, the entire world and its civilization may be plunged into an era of darkness and despair, which will destroy the happif ness and contentment of men everywhere, and set back the progress of civilization for a century. The first responsibility to the Constitution is a full and complete understanding of our institutions, and of our government. There is nothing so vital to the progress of our nation as for the citizen to understand and appreciate his Constitution. We need today a new birth of the spirit of responf sibility to the Constitution, grounded upon the philosf ophy of Thomas Jefferson, that government to be just must spring from the will of the people governed, and must operate for their equal benelitg that governments are created not as masters, but as instrumentalities originated by the people for the people's service. The mission of Democracy is to make men strong, happy, prosperous, independent sovereign citizens, ac' cording to their capacity, and their industry. Under our form of government the people are in control, if they want to control. The government came from them. The government belongs to them. What, there' fore, could they gain by substituting some other form? There is only one safe "Ism" in the world today and that is Americanismg an Americanism supported and maintained by loyal and conscientious citizens, ready and willing to discharge their duties and responsibilities and to make some sacrifices in order to preserve and maintain a free government and political liberty. The task is ours. The stage in America is set for a new birth of freedomg for a new consciousness of duty and responsibility, religious and political. Dorothy Schloder My Dog He sits there waiting in the hall Until he hears me softly call. 'Tis then his eyes with pleasure shine He knows the footsteps that are mine.

Edith's entrance into the Religious life, we are happy to state that she is the founf dress of our high school. Through her unceasf ing and untiring labors our school enjoys the privilege of being doubly accredited-with the State of Pennsylvania and Middle States Assof ciation of Colleges and Secondary Schools. She has given to her pupils a system of higher education in Academic, Scientific, and Commerf cial Work that is an excellent preparation for college Work.

Under the capable direction of the Reverend Raymond Balko, O. S. B., it was evident from the outset that the results would be more than gratifying. At first the pupils were divided into groups, but later they were united and it was surprising how harmoniously the voices blended. The effect was very pleasing to the privileged hearers. Thursday, February 2, the iirst evening session was held in the Sacred Heart Auditorium. After a brief instruction by our Reverend Director and a short period of practice, a surprise was sprung on the girls of the Saint Marys Parish by their sister members of the Sacred Heart Parish. Refreshments were served, games were played, and to the winners of Bingo, prizes were given. Accompanied by Reverend Father Ray' mond, all present were given an opportunity to display their vocal ability. This pleasant meeting, intended for an initiation to the work that was to follow, and Cur Singing Father Raymond much has done for us Worked very hard with never a fuss. He called us together every week In us, for talent, he began to seek.

From that time on the Club met every Thursday evening at 7:30. The regular weekly practice after school was also kept up, and special help and instrucf tions were frequently given to certain groups. On March 16, a number of the Seventh and Eighth grade pupils of the Sacred Heart School and the mem' bers of the Glee Club rendered an enjoyable program. From the first number to the last the applause of an appreciative audience greeted the performers. The parents who were present were surprised at how much their children had accomplished in so short a time. The songs of the Glee Club are both religious and secular. "O Vos Omnesn and "Song of Greeting" were composed by our Reverend Director. Some of the other numbers are: 'LBenedictus Es," "O Esca Viatorumf' "Prayer of Thanksgiving," "My Heart Ever Faithful," "Glowfworm," "Home on the Range," Brahm's "Lullaby," "All Through the Night," "The Mill," and "A Song of May." Alice Hanes Instructor He taught us much that is very nice Charged but our leisure for his price. When things went hard and were quite strange, We sang the "Gloweworm" and "Home on the Range."

Music For Gui' School For the past two years the orchestra has been under the direction of a teacher, whose ceaseless efforts to make the boys and girls more and more efficient has been an inspiration and an encouragement to all of us. Through her efforts our school can boast of a good orchestra of twentyffive members. During the various school programs of the year these students furnished the musical numbers and won unstinted praise. Not satished however with the instrumental music only, our Reverend Pastors invited Reverend Father Raymond, an expert teacher of music, both vocal and instrumental, to come to St. Marys for a time, to direct and instruct the choirs of the respective churches. At the same time Father took upon himself the work of organizing and teaching this year's high school Glee Club. His success was a foregone conclusionef he would not fail. 54 In addition to this he has organized glee clubs among the students of the St. Marys and Sacred Heart grade schools and they have made marked progress under his guidance. He has also volunteered his services in behalf of the orchestra. Here he has been of great assistance to the teacher and has given the students many pointers, so that now under the combined efforts of the two instructors the orchestra is advancing greatly in musical attainments. We take this occasion to thank the Reverend Father for his never failing efforts in developing our musical talents and the interest he has taken in the students of our school.

Fritz Hunting In Elk County As each fall season comes around, it brings with it Pennsylvania's most favorite outdoor sport, hunting. In the Appalachian Mountains of northwestern Pennf sylvania lies one of the greatest hunting regions in eastern ,United States and in the heart of this game country is Elk County. The game of this territory ranges from the wood' cock, which provides the hunter and his dog with many a day of pleasant hunting, to the black bear and deer. The cottonftail rabbit, snowshoe hare, or jack rabbit, the red, the grey, and the black squirrels, and the favorite of all bird hunters, the grouse or pheasant, constitute a large part of our small game. Hunting season opens with woodcock season which is from October first to the fifteenth. However, this time may vary, as the commission rules. After this season a brief period of about fifteen days elapses, when the season on small game opens and continues from two weeks to a month. This keeps the hunter occupied until "big game season" which begins with bear hunting. The bear season has become very popular in the last few years. An increase in the number of bears in our county has made it possible for the sports' man to get his "bruin." But popular as this season is, hunters enjoy above all to go into the woods after the fleet deer. Elk County was not always prominent for this kind of game, as the enemies of the deer, namely the timber wolf, the wildcat and others of this family prevented their rapid increase. However, when the cutting of ll 60 timber made these disappear, the new grazing areas brought about a rapid increase in the number of deer. For a time there was danger that careless hunting would exterminate these gentle, graceful creatures but with the establishment of the Game Commission and the importation of Michigan deer our herds soon became plentiful. Deer hunting is carried on either by "still" hunting or by "driving" Driving is the best means of arousing the deer from their beds and sending them into the path of the alert watcher who stands on guard, in an attempt to bring down his "bag" Most of the hunting grounds of Elk County are within a halffhour's drive from almost any point within the county. Good roads permit hunters to drive into the deer country, and within Efteen minutes be on a good stand ready for the first "drive" With plenty of game to provide the hunter with enjoyment, Elk County has become a very popular hunting region, so that hundreds of men come in from every section of the State while the season is open. Even the Governor of Pennsylvania took part in the chase here last fall. We are proud, indeed, of our "happy hunting grounds," and we are grateful to the Game Commission for protecting wild life here, that it may not become exterminated, and yet permit us to have this healthy pastime for a season every year. Richard Fritz -fm--1 r-ww-v-.qv-.-H-mv' . - 1, wwf.: i: +--. 1 ww.,-nf-mv-V1-4-.W .yew-.'.f,:a 111.3-1, :- Y Q W 'MM'-"ii -7- 1"S-v Perseverance To gain great achievements, we must strive to persevere, for perseverance is the keynote to success. By persevering, a great many things can be accom' plished, even though it may take a long time. Any one who gives up quickly is bound to fail, whereas those who work steadily toward gaining their goal are bound to succeed. Saint Monica, for example, prayed for eighteen years for the conversion of her son, Saint Augustine, and he became one of the greatest saints of all time. Many who ask God for favors, or beg Him to help them in their need, become discouraged when their prayers are not answered immediately Let these remember that prayers are always answered in some way which is for the good or the welfare of those prayed for, although results seem oft long def layed. Perseverance will win at last. All who ever succeeded in life's undertakings won success by per' severing efforts. Musicians, poets, authors, etc., hold the places they have today, because they never said fail. Then let us persevere to the end, and success will be ours. Arme Fischer Clocks In the hustle and bustle of the day's occupations it is a surprising fact to note the number of things that are all but forgotten. Clocks are among these slighted companions in our everyfday existence. We seem to take them for granted, place them out of our way and then forget them, until they force themselves on our consciousness. But do we ever stop to think what they have been doing for us? They enter into our lives subconsciously at all timesg when we rise, on retiring at night, during every hour of the day, they tell us what to do and when to do it, regulating our lives like an unseen ruler. Yet they are servants too, and may be our teachers. There is much we can learn from them, regularity, modesty, fidelity, etc. But no clock can go on forever without some care or attention. It needs to be wound, oiled, and cleaned. Nor can we be all we should be unless we attend to ourselves, soul and body. Lest our spiritual energies run clown, we must attend sermons, missions etc., be cleansed by contrition and Penance and receive graces through prayer, and the sacraments, while the body, too, must have its daily care. A clean mind in a healthy body will then make our life's clock run smoothly and satisfactorily until the end of time. john Mullaney NA Time for Jesus" Dear jesus-A time we have for everythingg A time to laugh, a time to weep, A time to work, a time to rest, A time to wake and a time to sleepg A time to play and sing and jestg But all the time my whole life through A time to go, a time to stay, Is not enough to think of Tou.

I wish I were an artist Like Michael Angelo, I'd paint the grandest pictures With hues like sunset glow. I wish I were a just man And honestly could say, To sin and vile temptation Ilve never given way. I wish I had the courage Each cross with joy to take, In peace and love with jesus And never Him forsake. Fred Lanzel A Christian He does not kneel in Church to pray, So every one may hearg He gives according to his means To help the poor each year. If any persons come along To tell him of their troublesg He tries his best to comfort them And aid them in their struggles. H62 The hungry never leave his door, Until they've had a share Of food within the larder That he can really spare. He seeks for peace with everyone He cannot live in strife, But more like Christ, he aims to be Each hour of his life. Edna Wolfel ,ff 2 'XXX ' " " HAPPY HUNTING GROUNDS, ST.

In all the games we've taken part We've played them true and fair With sportsmanship always at heart 'They'vc ever found us square. l65ll T. D. Valentine at WD Basketball The second month of school was scarcely under way when our Athletic Director, Rev. Father Adalbert called for the material from which Coach James Goetz was to mould the Catholic High's 1939 Basketball Team. Among those reporting for practice there was but one of last year's Varsity members Norbert Arnold. He was chosen captain of the "Crusaders" and proved himself a successful leader. He, together with four members of last year's Junior Varsity, constituted this year's team. These were supported by ten others from the Sophomore and Freshmen classes. In December the Crusaders were ready for their first encounter, and they met their opponents at johnson' burg on December 2nd. Our boys met defeat at the hands of the Paper City lads, and suffered another defeat on December 13th when they played them again on our home court. Several other games were played within this monthg one with James Cityg one at Renovag and a hard fought battle on January 6th against Oil City, a proverbially "unlucky day" for the Crusaders. The first league game took place at Bradford where the boys of Saint Bernard's handed us a smashing defeat. But failure only aroused the boys mettle and deter' mined to win in the following games they practiced long and hard, and were rewarded by gainin their first victory January 20th defeating St. Leo's of Ridgf way the final tally being 34f21. The ight spirit in the boys now fully aroused led them to another victory January 27, when they encountered St. Catherine's squad from DuBois defeating them to the tune of 32 to 15. In a lull that followed, the Crusaders did not rest on their laurels but practiced untiringly while Coach Goetz tried to iron out some of the rough spots in the technique and make up of the team, in preparation for one of the biggest and toughest games ofthe year. On February 3rd, namely, we were to meet the strong Im' maculate Conception team at Lock Haven. They thought the game was theirs until the Crusaders deceived them by their splendid playing, this opposing team did, however, put up a valiant fight, endeavoring to pref serve their present record of but one defeat, at the hands of the mighty Altoona Catholics, who were the State "champs" during recent years. The Central boys proved a little too much for them and led them by a margin through the entire game. At the last Lock Haven made one more desperate effort to break through for a win. But at the final whistle our boys of Central Catholic emerged victorious with a score of 21 to 20. Did the Crusaders feel too sure of them' selves after these notable victories? Perhaps, at any rate they met two defeats in a period of five days at the hands of Oil City and St. Bernard's. Four days after this, February 14th, they scored another victory over St. Leo's at Ridgway handing them a smashing defeat, the score being, 21 to 14. On Sunday, February 19th, St. Vincent's "Bearkittens" visited St. Marys and gave the Crusaders a good trouncing the score being 19 to 39. Victory followed this defeat when on February 24th they went to DuBois to meet St. Catherine's for a second time, and won by a score of 3'7f11. This victory put St. Marys in second place at the close of the league. Immaculate Conception of Lock Haven came to St. Marys on March 5rd for the last game of the season, only to be sent home badly beaten in a clean, fast, fight, the final score of which was 29 to 20. Thus our season ended fairly well, and we learned that not all bad beginnings have bad endings. Next year the team will be minus four of this years regulars, our capable captain, Norbert Arnold, our alert guard, Jim Higgins, our spiritful forward Pat O'Sullivan, and last but not least our wide awake center Bob Jacob. We hope Coach Goetz will continue his good ser' vices for the team with ever greater success. We gratefully acknowledge his interest in us during the past, well aware how much of our success is due to his untiring efforts. Above all we wish to thank Rev. Father Adalbert for the interest he has taken in our team, and above all in each individual member, proving himself one of the best friends the boys ever had. We are all very grateful and will never forget his kindness towards us. T. D. Valentine H6611 4 ... sis as Basketball Banquet Reverend Father Adalbert brought the Basketball season to a close in splendid manner by having a banquet at the Franklin Hotel on March 23rd. It was attended by members of the 1939 squad, their Coach, Athletic Director, Scorekeepers, Student Manager, Cheerleaders, Sportswriter, Ticket Sellers and Ticket Takers. Thirtyftwo in all. Letters were awarded to the following: Captain Norbert Arnoldg Patrick O'Sullivang James Higgins, Robert Jacobg Paul Sorgg William Robackerg Harold Cheatleg james jacobg Tron Valentineg George Fritz, and Elizabeth Schuster.

Now oft as I pass that window The thought recurs to me How others caress that chaplet My coveted rosary. Rosemary Fritz Gur Commercial Department Since many of our class have chosen the commercial course, it is only fitting that a part of this year book be devoted to presenting and explaining the business facilities which our school affords. In bookkeeping, the students are given a most complete and thorough training, which would enable them to assume a bookkeeper's position without much difficulty. Besides the usual text book assignments, the students are accorded an opportunity to put their newly acquired knowledge in practice, by the work sets, which are an addition to the regular course. In working out these practice sets, the students are familiarized with practically every type of transaction. The Gregg system, which is taught all commercial students, is one of the most popular systems of short' hand. This style has been endorsed by high schools, academies, and preparatory schools as the most practif cal of the various systems in use today. L ll 68 The typewriting department, which is one of the greatest assets to our high school, is also one of the best equipped of the school's in the near vicinity. The typewriters, which are eighteen in number, are of the best make and condition. The school faculty has main' tained this high standard of achievement by keeping a complete check on each typewriter, and supplanting those used ones with new machines, when conditions permit. Besides the typewriters, there are also an addressof graph, a Burroughs electric addiograph, duplicators and other machines which are placed at the disposal of the commercial classes. In addition to the above subjects, a commercial student's business knowledge is rounded off with a study of a few basic principles of the laws of state and government. Also included to make his course more finished are: Commercial Arithmetic and Busi' ness English. A. feselniclq ,V-arm.-W,--5 aw. 7- , 'ff '--, 2f'sr"w wail. U 1 vfzwrtrvrfrvwrrf-nr-5-9 rr'-'init' ' 'f ' ,M ao it Many A Man Has Turned His Hobby Into A "Spare Tire" When Unemployed Many men and women have taken up a hobby to make it possible during their spare time to engage in an enjoyable occupation. They spend money on equip' ment While they are employed and establish for them' selves valuable workshops. In many cases hobbies prove to be only a pastime. But, since the great depression of nineteen hundred and twentyfnine, numerous articles have appeared on the American Market that were formerly hobbies to many. Some of these are: photography, and stamp collecting. These have brought income to collectors who were found to have rare stamps and good pictures in their possession. A radio program that is broadcast weekly, known as "Hobby Lobby," brings to the radio audience strange hobbies which Americans have taken up for pastime, some of which seem to us almost impossible. Many a genius was born of a hobby. Children who have started in a small way, at first, have developed wonderful skill along certain lines and have secured for themselves ample income, or remunerative positions in later life due to an invention or a discovery, made while spending their free moments at a hobby. Perhaps, the greatest remuneration one can receive from a hobby is that the temptations to discontent are averted and peace of mind secured while thus happily employed. Robert Geitner The Maple Tree The giant tree in silence stood As only a sturdy maple could. Though sorrow Jilled her budding leaf, The maple tree well hid her grief. In the forest deep an axe rang outg Sometimes was heard a joyous shout. Although the cutter's axe drew near, The maple shuddered not with fear. Instead it raised its arms in prayer Its painful death that it might bear. The budding leaves in grievance shoolqg The tree itself wore a frightened look. Finding a place to start its course, The shining axe came down with force. It gave the tree a painful gash, And soon it fell with mournful crash. The sturdy tree in silence liesg Each tender leaflet slowly dies. Where once that tree in triumph stood, There soon will be but lqindling wood.

Lanzel Perseverance the Road of Success-Temporal and Eternal Perseverance is the constant pushing forward with determination and good will to conquer the evils and trials that form impediments in the path of life. It is the only true road to success. The great men of history, as well as those of today succeeded because they had courage enough to light through difiiculties, to rise above evils, and to stand firm as knights in armor, ready to hght till victory was their's. What would have become of the great leaders of the world if all hope and effort were abandoned at the sight of diiiiculties? How would the nations have 74 fared? Who would have guided the people in times of crisis? If preseverance is necessary for success in this life how much more is it needed to gain life eternal. Knowing that life upon earth is only temporal and a preparation for life to come why should we not be solicitous in doing good unto eternity? All are given sufficient grace to do good and will be given more and more divine assistance to soar to heights of spiritual success if we perseveringly ask for it and go forward manfully with a steadfast will to conquer the infernal foes, to scale the heights with God's weapons in hand. Fred Leithner ll Q WD - "Perseverance" P erseverance built the pyramids on Egypt's plains, E rected the gorgeous temple at jerusalem, R eared communities, states, and nations, S caled the stormy, cloudcapped Alps, E xplored every land and sailed every sea, Visited craters, faced dangerous eruptions, E xcavated rockbeds and tunneled the mountains, R educed nature's forces through the knowledge of science, A rrested the tides and harnessed the rivers, N oted the planets and studied their orbits, C onquered the savage and tamed evil passions E arned for us peace and a heavenly kingdom.

Edith Meyer ll751l Industries of St. Marys is W - Our city was settled ninetyfseven years ago and through the struggle of years, and the patience and perseverance of sturdy energetic men, enterprises have sprung up in our community, which today are the sources of livelihood for a large body of workers. Out brick works supply millions of building brick for the state, yearly, and employ a large number of men who have worked there since the plant was first constructed many years ago. Two of the largest sewerfpipe plants in the world are located in this town. Tile works which once afforded work for many are idle at present. The clay products made at these plants, as well as the clay mines which yield thousands of tons of clay annually, give work to another set of workmen. Three Carbon plants are within our limits, the largest and oldest being that of Stackpole Carbon Company. United with this is the Pure Carbon Company, where brushes for electric motors and auto' mobiles are made. Stackpole Carbon Company makes millions of resistors yearly, which are used in the many makes of radios on the market today. One branch of this Company is in nearby johnsonburg. Here volume controls for radios are made. Inventions are not unusual in our factories, for all of which the owners hold copyrights and patents. Speers, the second largest plant, makes carbon elec' trodes which automobile companies use in their elecf tric blast furnaces in Detroit. The Keystone Carbon Company is another plant, which specializes in certain products noted for their strength and durability. 76 The carbon products made in St. Marys are shipped to every state of the Union as well as to the principal countries in other parts of the World. three thousand workers are employed in these carbon plants. The Sylvania, a factory where electric light bulbs are made, also adds greatly to our employment. Several years ago when Commander Byrd went on his expedi' tion to the South Pole, he used Sylvania bulbs exclu- sively on his expedition. Two railroads pass through our cityg one road hav- ing its oiiices and machine shops here, afford employf ment to a number of men. Other industries are the Builders Supply Co. and the Corbett Cabinet Co. in both of which all kinds of building materials are handled, for homes in and out of town, a tannery which supplies leather for factories throughout the states, two breweries, producing hunf dreds of gallons of liquor shipped to the surrounding country. All of these give employment to some of our people of St. Marys. Besides our industrial plants there are stores, gar- ages, banks, restaurants, theatres, and other places of business, and amusements in which opportunities are given to earn one's livelihood. Because of this St. Marys has not suffered much through want of em' ployment. We should all gratefully acknowledge this fact and feel proud of our enterprising industrial community.
