IN OURSELVES OUR FUTURE LIES HERE is an old story, somewhat like this: A man on his deathbed called his three sons to his side and bequeathed to them his vineyard with the injunction that while they dug about the vines they would find a hidden treasure. The young men set vigorously to work expecting to unearth a cof- fer of gold or gems. But none was found. Better tillage, however, produced an abundance of grapes which, when sold, brought them large profits. Think- ing the matter over, they understood what their father had meant by the "hidden treasure". Now, our Father in Heaven has implanted a hidden treasure in the vine- yard He has assigned to each of us to till. This vineyard is divided into two parts-the spiritual or the land of our soul, and the temporal or our position in life. Both of these must be worked to the best of our ability. God has supplied us with tools of the most excellent quality in the education He has afforded us and the spiritual aids He offers us. His injunction to us is to work until He comes to pay us as His laborers. ln ourselves our future lies. On us, and on no one else depends what use we make of the tools at our disposal. The vineyard of our soul we must till by prayer, the devout reception of the Sacraments, and the living of a worthy life of honesty and toil. The vineyard of our position in life, we must care for with zeal cmd diligence. Whatever employment we assume, let us remember that toil is the secret of success-but only such toil succeeds which is done under the eye of God. A certain saint has well said that we must work as though all depended on ourselves and pray as though all depended on God. "Life is what we make it". We must work out our own lives. We must have a certain confidence in our own ability that by prayer and persevering work we may accomplish the duties which lie before us. Many of us are ig- norant as to what we may undertake in our future lives, but by prayer and a good life the inspiration and opportunity will come, and when it does come, we must work, pray, and act in accordance with the guidance of the Holy Spirit which comes to us by way of inspiration. In ourselves our future lies. All the knowledge we have acquired during our twelve years of schooling, we will need to use to the best of our ability in the vineyard of life. Although no two of us shall leave our Alma Mater with the same amount of acquired knowledge, let each of us remember that cour- tesy and a willingness to profit by the experience and advice of our parents and of older persons will profit us materially in working out our future lives. Having worked our two-fold vineyard faithfully and perseveringly during our short life of trial, our Heavenly Father will surely give us the wages He has promised-Eternal Life. Leona Wortman.

Now, that our school career is coming to a close, it is time to look over our school years. This is not so exciting as the history we are taught in school, but it is just as interesting to us. While the las -A cry of school holds many thrills for us, the first day was almost as excitinll, , e looked forward to that day a long time before we were old enough to go to school,-and when it finally arrived, September 7, 1928, we awoke bright and early, eager to dress for this big event in our lives. About 7:30 many happy little girls were seen coming up Church Street. After eight o'clock Mass, forty-three of us, some of whom were accom- panied by our parents, wg "'i Wjtaken to the first grade room. That day we just enrolled and then were , assed, all went smoothly because our parents stayed with us, but the days following were not so easy for our teacher, be- cause, left without our mothers and being lonesome for home, we would not do all we were told. However, under the management of good Sister Anas- tasia, our fears were soon calmed. In time we learned numbers, the alphabet, and the reading of the pr' . We also learned interesting stories about Our Divine Lord, our first pare' in Paradise, the beauties of Heaven, and incidents in the lives of the saints. Thus the school year passed quickly and a vacation of three months began. After being out of school for so long, we were quite anxious to return to begin our second year. We rejoiced when we were given new books and saw that we were advancing in the subjects which we had started the previous year. It was while we were in second grade that we prepared for First Holy Communion. During the course of instructions one of our classmates, lane Werner, became seriously ill and was permitted to receive Our dear Lord be- fore the other members of the class. How sad six of us were when-we were told that we were not old enough to receive until the next yearl It was in Iune of that year that Anna Marie Iesberger acted as bride to Father Wolfgang Frey when he read his First Mass. How we all looked up to her and in our childlike way envied her. In the third year, instead of a Sister, we were entrusted to the care of a lay-teacher who seemed quite different, but whom we all liked. There was an addition of three girls to our class. These girls, who previous to entering the St. Marys Parochial school had been going to the St. Walburga school, are still with us. One of these, Alice Hacherl, is our class musician. That year we six who had not made our First Holy Communion were permitted to receive. The fourth grade was not very difficult and was much like the other three grades. In this grade, we bought many heathen babies. We put our money in a little box on Sister's desk, and when we had five dollars in it, we sent it away to some Missionary priest so that another little baby would receive sus- tenance and protection. We were permitted to select a name for each baby nga' 2 j 3 27 'Q-. 'A "-" fi'4...fs: .Q.. rescued through our efforts. After a little discussion, we decided to call the first one Clara, in honor of our teacher. The fifth and sixth grades were rather difficult, but we succeeded fairly well. These were the last two years in the grade school building. ln the fifth grade we had a play entitled, "The Rainbow Drill" which was very colorful. ln this, the girls formed a rainbow by having crepe paper of rainbow hues and tints. We practiced for some time so that our play would meet the stan- dard requirements of our school entertainments. In the sixth grade we also had a play, entitled "The Life of St. Germaine". Leona Wortman took the part of St. Germaine and Virginia Erich represented the stepmother. After leaving the grade school building we went to the Gymnasium build- ing to complete our seventh and eighth grades. We liked the change because we were getting closer to the high school all the time. In addition to the re- quired subjects, we spent some time preparing to chant High Masses, Requi- ems, and hymns. After we had sufficient practice, the seventh and eighth grade pupils took turns, singing. The vacation which followed soon came to an end, and the time to reg- ister for high school courses arrived. Here for the first time we were united with the eighth grade pupils of the Sacred Heart parish. The classes being large, the pupils were divided into four groups, two rooms for girls and two for boys. Some days passed before we could get accustomed to Departmental work, selecting the subjects we wished to take, and adjusting our program to class schedules. Then began our Sophomore year with a double promotion, in grade, and from first floor to second floor. This was very gratifying. About this time a sound motion picture projector was purchased for the use of the school. A number of commercial films were shown and several feature films, the outstanding one being "Miracle of Lourdes". This innova- tion proved to be a treat to all of us because formerly we had seen only slides or pictures which were silent. The lunior year brought with it a pleasant occurrence, the purchasing of our class rings. It was a very special day when the salesman came into our room with a large selection of class rings from which we were to make a choice. Another event that appealed to us, at the close of that year, was our being invited by the Alumni to serve the graduates and Alumni members at the annual Alumni banquet. Then came the much-desired reports, stating we were eligible for the senior room. This has been a busy year, indeed. Early in the fall, we began the major project of our school life, the Year Book. We hurried about getting advertisements and subscriptions, and began collecting material for our an- nual. Class officers and staff members were chosen who were to assume the responsibilities of this undertaking. Then we picked our motto, class colors, and flowersg this was quite a task as we tried to please everyone. The day the salesman came with the pennants, emblems, and hats, there was considerable commotion. When choosing the pennants and emblems, everything went all right. Then came the hats. Some wanted the "Crew" hat and some the "Scotty". Since there was such a marked difference in choice, we were finally permitted to get either hat. -Q 3 : S "'?'Q" 28 .. Q - A few trying hours still remained to us, the taking of final examinations. With these successfully completed, we once again breathed freely, and looked joyfully forward to the many pleasures awaiting us on Graduation Day. Creta Iackson. ..,., SACRED HEART GIRLS CLASS HISTORY OW that the close of our high school career is rapidly approaching, let us look back to the opening day of school, and see what events have occurred since then for our brief class. history. In September, l928, about thirty-five little girls assembled in the first grade room at the Sacred Heart School. Some of us disliked the idea of entering school as we would much rather have spent the time playing, while others were happy to think that now, at last, they had grown old enough to begin their studies. Recess greatly appealed to all of us as it meant some free time, and in our room, the "baby room", a little surprise party was occasionally given. What a treat it was when apples, cookies, or some other delicacies were distributed to each member of the class! Each one of us aimed to excel in her lessons so that her name would be written on the highest branch of the tree drawn on the blackboard. But how sad we all felt when we missed our lessons and, like defective fruit, came tumbling down to the ground! During the second year, joy reigned supreme when each member of our class had the honor of receiving her First Holy Communion. What a happy day! One that will never be forgotten! In the third year, the chief event was our Christmas play. The Infant Iesus, the Blessed Mother, Saint Ioseph, the angels and shepherds were represented. We were arranged in groups and dressed in distinctive costumes. Some of us entertained with recitations, others with Christmas songs. It was a pleasant and new experience to each one of us to appear on the stage. A surprise awaited us in the fourth grade when instead of a Sister, a lay- teacher was appointed to take charge of our class. Another change that took place that year was the opening of a new classroom for the fourth grade. All of us were delighted with the new desks we were permitted to use. In the fifth grade a Sister again took charge of us. The news that the class would be moved to the next floor was greeted with joy, this, however, was somewhat marred by the loss of some of our companions. Some moved to another town while others changed schools. During the year little letters were written to the classmates who were prevented attending classes on ac- count of illness. Frequently contests were held between the girls and the boys, the winners being presented a flag which was displayed in the class- room. The following year was hailed with pleasure as the same Sister was as- signed to the class. An incident of that year that struck terror to our hearts was the fire that broke out in the basement, but our fear was of short dura- tion due to the good order kept by our teachers in marshaling us safely to the playground. In the seventh grade, part of our school time was devoted to instructions - 2: gi a 29 z --IWM Q H f as a preparation for Confirmation. The day we received this efficacious sacra- ment was a solemn and memorable occasion. That year, our pastor, Rever- end Father Timothy, OSB., was transferred to the Saint Marys Parish, and he was succeeded by Reverend Father Henry, O.S.B., who still has charge of the Sacred Heart Parish. Because of Reverend, Father Henry's desire that a chil- dren's choir be organized, we were trained to sing in the choir. When we reached the eighth grade, we were permitted to become mem- bers of the choir, a privilege for which all of us were grateful. At the close of school, the pupils of the entire school rendered a program in honor of our esteemed pastor and dear friend, Reverend Father Henry, OSB., who cele- brated his Silver Iubilee in the priesthood. That day, too, diplomas and class pins were awarded to all of the pupils of our class who satisfactorily com- pleted the eighth grade. Prizes were also given for the highest average in studies, and perfect attendance at school. A few months later, we were admitted to the Saint Marys Catholic High School, where we met new Sisters who were our teachers and advisors for the remaining years of school. We also met new companions some of whorr. became our closest friends. In the tenth grade we were consigned to a room on the second floor. How sorry we were that not all of our former classmates were still with us to enjoy the beautiful rooml We all appreciated the new sound-motion picture machine that was pur- chased for our high school that year through the kindness of Reverend Father Timothy and the Alumni Association. Several memorable incidents occurred during our eleventh year. About two months after the opening of the term our anticipation of ordering class rings was realized. We were elated over our choice of rings, and our joy was increased because we received the rings before Christmas. In january, to commemorate Sister M. Edith's Golden jubilee in the Sisterhood and in grati- tude for her untiring zeal in our behalf, all of the pupils of our high school ren- dered a program in Sister's honor. The serious illness and death of His Holi- ness Pope Pius XI, in February, left a sad impression upon each of us. Later, when the announcement was made that Cardinal Pacelli was elected to the papal throne, and took the name of Pope Pius XII, there was universal rejoic- ing among our pupils. At last, we reached the Senior year. During this year, we have had many happy experiences. October 29, a reunion of all our former classmates from the grade school was held in the Sacred Heart School. To add to the spirit of Christmas, the pupils of the high school rendered an interesting program. Six of the girls of our class presented the play, "The Wandering Christmas Cakes", which, because of its humor, was enjoyed by all present. On February IG, we had the unique experience of meeting Chief Osken- onton, a son and grandson of great Chiefs of the same name, who spent the early years of his life among his people in St. Lawrence River Reservation in Canada. By hereditary right he bears the title of Chief in the proud Mohawk tribe. His narration of some of his past experiences and the way he expressed himself gained our admiration and enthusiasm. That incident will long be remembered by us all. 2:11:31 1'- 30 - -7: -"'- it " Due to the intervention of the unusually early Easter vacation this year, the taking of the graduates' pictures for the Year Book was somewhat delayed, however, the first part of April found us hurrying to the photographer, and in a few days we jubilantly received proofs and pictures. We are now busily engaged in the compilation of our annual and are looking forward with pleasure to the day when the completed copy will be presented to us. Now, we have but two months before the close of school, and we realize that we will soon have to leave our dear teachers and our Alma Mater. Let us offer a word of thanks to the good Sisters who were so kind to us all. Let us appreciate the advice and assistance they so willingly have given us.

Its doors are open wide To welcome young and old, And as we step inside, Its beauties we behold. When in the church we kneel Before the Altar-Throne, We to Our King appeal: Our thoughts are His alone. Three Holy Masses, daily Are on the altars said, And from the pulpit lofty The word of God is spread. For Mary it was named, To her, then, let us pray That she will guard and guide us Until life's final day.

'N' as . ere-N:5'f"3p 5f -egizosg-S--"4 CLASS HISTORY qsorsj E have come a long way together, since that eventful day some twelve years ago when we first entered school. But aswwe reminisce, we find that it has not really been as long as it seems because of the many events easily recalled since that day in September, 1927. I can see it yet. It was late summer, the sun was shining, and a slight airy breeze was blowing from the southwest. I still remember walking up Church street with my mother, to that venerable building with its quiet and restful surroundings, which was to be practically our home for the next six years. The never-to-be-forgotten looks of bewilderment, of surprise, of fear on those baby faces during that first week, still stand out vividly. After the first three weeks, school began to take on a different aspect. The first year was over like a flash. Vacation came and went and soon we were back in the harness. The second grade passed in a flurry of happy excitement, since we re- ceived our Blessed Lord in the Holy Eucharist that year and were cleansed of our sins in Confession. ln the long ago we had received Baptism and now, after the reception of these two additional Sacraments, we began to show signs of becoming what every one of our parents hopefully looked for-little saints. Before we realized it, the third and fourth grades came and went. By this time the novelty of school life had worn off. How we did look forward to each week-end, and for free days-we planned weeks ahead! The fifth year dragged by, and when time for beginning the sixth grade came along, most of us had had just about enough school. However in the seventh we took on new vim, vigor, and vitality from the direct results of another great Sacrament, that of Confirmation. Strengthened by this, the seventh and eighth grades flew by. These last two years were spent in the high-school building where the ringing of the bell every forty-five minutes somewhat fascinated us although we never got quite used to it until we were actually in high school. The next September we reported for enrollment on a Thursday and were assigned our seats and books. Again, history repeats itself, we were some- what bewildered and surprised at the ringing of the bell after each period, calling us to move on to another classroom and teacher. Being young, we soon got accustomed to this also. In our freshmen and sophomore years we had no choice of subjects but had to take what we needed most and so found some of our work not to our liking. But we passed them whether they pleased us or not. In the junior year, however, we were given a choice. Fourteen of us chose the commercial course while the others betook themselves to the science rooms or adopted the academic course. Now we had no excuse for not doing our Work if we did not like it, as we had chosen the subjects our- selves. Finally, we were Seniors. What a thrill! The eldest in the school! The highest possible grade! An experience encountered but once in a life- time for many, and we made the most of it. sq, 'P' 34 ' -B ' --ruin-:nun-n o-- -0- 9 F kin g as e I an ' T. ao , - . . - Q , ,I f . . The year is all but over and passed entirely too quickly. Our annual, the "Memo", published by the seniors, held much of our attention during the last semester, especially after school hours. Literary men, salesmen, poets, artists, advertising agents, etc., etc., were in demand at all times, and nobly they re- sponded. Were our efforts crowned with success? Get the "Memo" and see for yourself. For our.. ,ass motto we chose, "In ourselves our future lies", be- cause we all realized? y it was up to us and us alone, to make of ourselves what we should be, worthy citizens of God and country. After much debate and good-natured quarrelling we decided on brown, cream, and gold for our class colors. Whatever else they may say, brown reminds us of the shadows of life and gold of its future glory. Now that graduation days are near some of us ask ourselves seriously, "Will we ever amount to anything worth while?" In answer, let us resolve never to forget the meaning of our motto. With God's assistance we can live up to it and all will be well. We have come a long way, but we still have a long way to go. Gerard Kuntz. +L TIME IS FLEETING Time keeps on flying Regardless of the weather, Flowers are dying In woodland and heather. Dead leaves are dropping In lanes and from hedges: Raindrops are pattering On rooftops and ledges. Day hours are waning Winds loud, are whistling, Cold rains are falling Soon 'twill be drizzling. Winter with snow storms Spreads his white mantlesg The blue sky above us Lights up with candles. Blizzards are racing O'er mountain and lea, Sweeping the highways And shouting with glee. March winds will follow And springtime apacep April with showers Ioin in the race. Flowers and sunshine Can scarcely await The time for their coming Lest they be late. Yes, time is flying, The seasons go by Through decades and centuries, Eternity draws nigh. Robert I.

We had dreamed for eight years about the day when we could "Stick Out Our Chests" and say we were "High School Students". The first months we were very puzzled at the ringing of bells every forty-five minutes, the arrangement of classes and rooms, but we finally learned to follow the schedule. Our class didn't have to go through any "hazing" and we all seemed to have a very good time that year. " Our Sophomore year was not much different. We gradually took more difficult subjects and we were expected to be more studious than We had been as Freshmen and to supplement memory work by experiments and otherwise. For example: we had nature hikes and projects in biology. For extra curricu- lar work a few took up basketball, others organized a softball league, and the English class formed a dramatic club. In the junior room we began to take things more seriously as we under- stood that our high school work was really important. All students were now to decide definitely upon one of three courses: Academic, Scientific, and Com- mercial. All the material given in this year, in any one of these courses, was important and nothing else could be substituted. We got through the year, however, and in "Pretty Good Shape". Not all was work in our junior year. W'e took time out for basketball, both on class and varsity teams, played softball and other outdoor games. A very busy year, our final high school year, now looms up before us. It does not differ from any other year, nor is it much more important, for without the knowledge of any one of the previous years we could not have become Seniors. In this year of memorable events, we have completed a very fine year book with the unselfish cooperation of teachers and a number of the sen- ior students. We have tried to imbibe the splendid teachings instilled into us so that we shall have a solid foundation on which to erect our future under- takings. As we go out into the world, another class of Central High, we are trusting that God's blessings will attend us.

CM . ... f'if: BOYSI CLASS PROPIZIECY T was the year 1960, I had been on my vacation for a few days when I ac- cepted an offer to buy a large woodland very itable for hunting. I de- cided to build a camp there and looked arourgl for a suitable location. After wandering about for some time, I returned to the road emerging some distance from my car. Across the road I noticed a beautiful little cottage surrounded by well- kept lawns and a white picket fence. I crossed over for a closer view when whom should I meet but George Meisel relaxing in a hammock between two shady maples. I learned that he also was on a vacation. In my chat with him we reverted to our school days and the years that had elapsed since. George had received some training at the local airport and had received his private pilot license. Not content with that he later advanced to commercial transport pilot, then to the department of aeronautical research of the navy and finally to the chairman of that board of research. After speny a half hour with him I left the cottage to wend my way h y Xe when a pulled up to the curb and stopped. occupant alighted If V et me. Toi my delight and astonishment, I reco i2ed another class- , Gerard Kuntz. He called my attention to his car. This car was of the low-priced group but had, I was told, the endurance of a high-priced model. It was manufactured by the Wolfel Motor Company of which Robert Wolfel, another classmate, was the owner. Gerard was head of his laboratory and was responsible for many accessories to this latest model. Thi g Satur- day afternoon, the plants were shut down so Gerard was going t nd a few hours on the golf course. He asked me to come along, which I was glad to do. A large crowd was just leaving the place when we got there, all making commendatory remarks about Ierome Frank. We learned from Ierome, whom we encountered shortly, what all this meant. He related that the finals for deciding the P. G. A. championship had just been played and he emerged vic- torious. This pleased us almost as much as it did our erstwhile congenial classmate, but was not altogether surprising because Ierome had his heart set on that title for a long time. We could not see Ierome for long as an en- thusiastic crowd carried him away with them. Gerard and I played one round, which ended in a tie, and then we went back to the main office of the company. While there I chanced upon an article in the newspaper. It was featured on the front page in large letters heading the column, and read: "George Clark, South African Explorer for the Smithsonian Institute, lust Re- turned." I read no further but begged Gerard to locate our adventurer by phone. As soon as We ascertained his whereabouts we started off to visit him. He was as glad to see us as he was to be home on his vacation. We talked of jungles and African wilds and hair-breadth escapes till long into the night. It was better than any newspaper article could possibly be and we parted with regret. fig The next day Roman Kronenwetter put in his appearance. He chanced to We in the city and learned that I was home, whereupon he looked me up be- fore he continued his sales trips, for a salesman he was. As such he had traveled the World over and could give a fund of interesting information about ..q, : lb' 38 t 'Q every nation cmd country visited. William Robacker, the editor of the city paper looked eagerly for an article from his pen, as nothing could be more interesting and none lacked a touch of humor. Robacker, by the way, had risen from printer's devil to editor-in-chief of this paper. Alone in my study night I turned on the radio. It was just at the be- ginning of' a program. Idimmediately recognized the voice of Harold Lenze giving the commercial. After. the commercial Harold went on giving the news of the day, announcing that a famous chemist who had worked consistently in the field of chemical research had just been awarded the coveted Nobel Prize for chemistry. This man was Leroy Wingenbach. His labor in this field had been Widely publicized. After the news and just before station identifica- tion the announcer stated that the engineer in charge of the broadcast was Iames Gerber. Iames had been studying and working with radio since his high school days and had at last achieved his goal. I later Went to inspect the VVolfel Motor Plant. It was very modern in every respect. Elevators and carriers on every side and devices to reduce manual labor were common. I noticed that the patent on many of the ma- chines was held by Ierome Breindel. Ierome had been ap A "'f 'pe in a machine shop early in lifegf .4 he began building machinery long .ygl I. Some oil.-the machines which ' 'uilt were in this plant. 3 The next day I drove back to the woods to pick up a few tools which II had left there. Here I noticed a man dragging a large deer. This man was Ber- nard Shields. He said the buck had been illegally shot and that he happened upon it w " e walking along the stream where he found it bleeding. Bernard was sec Q of the State Department of Forests and Waters. While driving home a little later I passed the Luhr clinic just outside the city limits. From small town doctors these two boys, Pierre and Eymard Luhr, had Worked up to being directors of a very popular institution. By now I had seen the greater number of my former classmates and de- cided to see them all. Herman Grotzinger, I learned, was owner of a large dairy farm and furnished most of the milk used in town. His farm was very large and productive, and the envy of all dairy owners. In Herman's posses- sion I found several devices labeled Lawrence Lechner's Mail Order House. Thus I learned what he was doing for his life's work. I spent a few hours with Herman and then sought the local airport to fly to Mark Lecker's store. I found filling mail orders was not his sole occupation. He had personally built a racing plane and was going to run it in a coast-to-coast race. I, of course, could not follow him there but went on in search of other classmates. I met Robert Welz at a tournament game between theatre managers and some other team, both expert bowlers. The former won and Andrew Simbeck, a member, played no little part in the scoring. Andrew at this time was manager of the theater. I Went there to see a picture. A short subject, the manufacture of carbon products, preceded the main picture. A realistic picture of the invention of some of these prod showed their inventor, Robert Lion, at work. These products, which mostly in diesel engines, were being manufactured by Charles Ehrensberg' , in a large plant in his home town. A special book review was also given. This was a historical novel written by james Brunner. 39 'N it 5 o-- 11--vt.. - . .. . .... On the way out of the theatre I met Iames Wilhelm and Maurice Samick. These were respectively state secretary of agriculture and president of the state board of agriculture, as I learned later while talking over old times. The last mentioned completed the number of my former classmates and well satisfied with one of my most pleasant vacations spent mostly in their company I returned to the state capitol to resume my duties in the employ of the government. Ioseph Rettger. . ..., u i G-IRLSI CLASS PROPI-IECY T was Iune in the year 1960. As I sat at the desk watching my pupils file out of the class room I offered a prayer of thanks that vacation had at last arrived. Five years ago I had come to the town of Queensville seeking a position as school teacher. After due deliberation, the School Board engaged me to take charge of seventh grade pupils, fifty in number. The children were joyfully anticipating the coming of vacation and I think I was still more anxious than they for I had long had the desire of spending some time in lo- cating each member of the graduating class of 1940. When the day arrived upon which I was to begin traveling, I boarded the plane for Denver. Seated comfortably, I began to read a very interesting book, when suddenly I interrupted by a childish cry, "I want some water". Raising my eyes from iffy book I saw a smiling nurse walk down the aisle with a glass of water. I had seen that face before, but where? In the class room of course. It was Monica Bauer. We chatted all the way telling of our different experiences. The huge plane was brought to earth on a beautiful green meadow. Having descended, we went to a ranch nearby. "Welcome to Rodeo Ranch," came a sweet clear voice from the doorway. That smile gave her away. Yes, it was Anna Marie Iesberger. Monica and I were spellbound as we lis- tened to the exciting stories Anna Marie told us. But, alasl I had to part from this happy company. It was time for me to leave for Chicago. Upon entering the plane I glanced at the aviatrix who was preparing for flight. Sensing that she was being watched, she looked up and smiled at me with two lustrous blue eyes. Immediately I recognized my joke- loving friend Marie Simbeck. We all felt safe as she was an expert at man- aging the plane. Leaving me off at the airport in Chicago, Marie promised to see me again. While waiting there I was met by a news reporter. One glimpse of the beaming face told me it was Marie Weinzierl, who was em- ployed by the publishers of the Chicago Press. She asked me to accompany her to the office to meet the editor. Imagine my surprise when I saw Mary lane Wortman. She had worked very hard and attained her goal. We three repaired to the hotel and as we partook of dinner we freely discussed our school days. After Mary lane and Marie returned to their work, I stopped at ...g W" 40 -'cs "'-'QE B - fb -. one of the large stores to purchase a few tokens for my pupils. While inspect- ing different articles I was greeted by a cheery good afternoon. In great won- derment, I faced about and beheld Edna Hoffman, who was a saleslady in this large store. The head of the firm who passed through the store praised Edna highly, saying that much of the success of the sales was due to her good management. There I also met Dorothy Iacob, a competent clerk. I then toured to Philadelphia, where, in one of the leading hospitals, I met a triplet of nurses, namely, Virginia Werner, Dorothy Grasser and Irene Wehler. They were all under the management of Dorothy Schlimm. Their eyes reflected the happiness they had attained in doing this noble work to assist humanity. Dorothy Schlimm told me that they were waiting for the sur- geon, Patricia Mullaney, who' about to perform a very delicate operation. Having nothing to do, I wait' to see her. She arrived earlier than we ex- pected, thus giving us an opportunity to rehearse past experiences. Upon entering an Orphan's Home in New York City I espied a Sister with a group of happy-faced children about her. Her countenance denoted seren- ity and contentment. As she bestowed a friendly smile on me I recognized my youthful associate, Dorothy Minnick. Her lofty ambition of spendng her life in God's service was now being realized. In another part of the city, in a large department store, one entire floor of which was set apart for exhibiting the beautiful furnishings of a home, I learned that Patricia Wegemer was the expert interior decorator, also that Wilda Baumkratz owned a modern Beauty Shop in that vicinity. At Harris- burg I met Veronica Keller who was one of the private secretaries in the De- partment of Education, while Monica Iacob, Virginia Erich, and Creta Iackson ably filled the posts of stenographers. , At Washington, D. C., I met Erma Meier, the effi 't bookkeeper of a large firm manufacturing auto parts. Arriving at Richmond, Virginia, I visited the Red Cross quarters. There I found two more of my classmates, Mary Rita Wies- ner, now a biologist, and Claire Marie Boylan, a scientist in the Red Cross Lab- oratories. Before leaving for Florida the next morning, I attended Mass at the beauti- ful cathedral of St. Ioseph. The sweet strains of music from the choir loft caught my ear and I was tempted to turn around, but remembering that I was at Mass, I checked the impulse for the time being and when services were over I asked an aged lady who the organist was. Upon being informed that it was Alice I-Iacherl, I decided to wait for her. When I met Alice outside I commented upon her musical ability. It was evident that she had accom- plished much in music, her life's ambition. She, however, evaded the compli- ment. I inquired of Alice if she could locate our classmate Ida. Great was my surprise when I heard that Ida also was in Virginia in the suburbs of Rich- mond, so Alice took me out in her car. Ida Eckert had become the owner of a spotless white bungalow. The green shutters and flowers of every hue around the home made it very attractive. Ida was delighted to see us and immediately invited us to spend some time with her. Our stay, however, was limited to a few hours as Alice had an appointment at one o'clock and my plane was scheduled for two o'clock. With regret we bade each other farewell and I journeyed to Florida. I was 'QI Q' 41 .' - . I V3 Z y Ii....5t ,ig-W '..- I SQ' just in time for the famous airplane races, and I was greatly thrilled when I discovered that Miriam Smith was one of the contestantwi Everyone was cer- tain that she would win, and she did-good old Miriam. She hardly gave me a chance to congratulate her as she had so much to tell me. I sojourned in the beautiful land of flowers for several days, then hopped off to Wyoming. While walking through Yellowstone Park I stopped suddenly to look at a nurse who was reading to two charming little girls. She gave me a smile of recognition and I realized I ' fiagain seeing Agnes Leithner. Having ob- served how attentively the ,W I n listened to the story Agnes had read to them, I asked to see the book. " 'Madelon and the Rose' by Miriam Schaut", the fly leaf read. How proud I was to know that Miriam had succeeded in the literary field! I remembered how she had held our interest with her stor- ies in school. In Los Angeles, which is in the heart of the wonderful fruit-growing dis- tricts, I spent some time with Helen Hoffman who was living with her brother on a large plantation. It was a joy to see how contented Helen Was. The last classmate on my list, Leona Wortman, also lived in Los Angeles. She was Dean of a Young Girls' College and was very happy in the profession she had chosen. After spending the few remaining weeks of my vacation sight-seeing, I re- turned to my class room with the happy thought that I had seen all of my class- mates once more.

A tortured mind now takes him back To his homeland far and dear, He thinks he hears his mother's voice Now fraught with grief and fear. Instead of gleaming bayonets, He now sees swaying trees Whose leafy branches seem to pray God grant this country peace. Let o'er it hover the olive branch Instead of bursting shells. DREAMS And as the night of life draws near, His tear-dimmed eyes behold The soft rays of the rising sun Bid night its curtain fold. He sees a gray-robed lady there A torch within her handy It is the Statue of Liberty Still guarding his own land. He closes gently then his eyes And gives his soul to God: He knows the Father from on high Will watch o'er his dear home While he will find eternal peace Beyond the blood-drenched sod.

In the feature and household departments of the Catholic newspapers are found articles of special interest to all members of the family. These articles are written by specialists in their respective fields, hence, when one wishes to read, he need not ponder long whether what he is about to read is against his faith or not. He knows that if it has been published by a Catholic editor it undoubtedly has gone through the inspection of the Catholic Press Associa- tion, which has annual meetings to promote the highest ethical standards in publication, advertising, and business methods. The Catholic press is the proponent of Christian culture. In its presenta- tions of news, its editorial expression, its special articles, its books and pamph- lets, it is concerned with the really worth while and lasting things of life-the spread of Christian truths, the integrity of the home and family life, the promo- tion of charitable enterprises, and applying the great truths of the Gospels to the problems of life. The numerous Catholic weekly newspapers and the dailies in English and foreign languages, are the Catholic counterpart of the daily secular press. They reach the largest number of readers, supplying millions of Catholics throughout the country with accurate news concerning all the principal events and activities of the Church, both in this country and abroad, in addition to local diocesan news. One of the most important and useful aids is the devel- opment of literary guides and reviews, enabling the reader to make an intel- ligent selection of reading material in the shortest time. Bishops and popes have very strongly urged the Catholic people to have at least one Catholic paper in their homes, for experience has proved that even the name of God is seldom mentioned in the secular press. Pius XI, of recent memory said, "I shall consider as done to me personally, what you do for the Catholic press." 1,1 Dorothy Grasser. THE ROSARY AND PEACE INCE our present Holy Father has been Pope, a little more than a year, we have heard many urgent appeals for peace from the Vatican. The Holy Father has appealed to the rulers of the belligerent nations to strive for peace between them and has also asked all the Faithful to pray for peace. Again and again he has urged upon all, the fervent recital of the rosary that in re- sponse the Blessed Virgin, Queen of the Rosary, may obtain this blessing from her Divine Son whose constant greeting was, "Peace be to you." Let us therefore pray the rosary daily and urge others to do so. It is made up of such simple prayers that anyone can recite it, and it can be prayed anywhere and at any time. Nor need it be said uninterruptedly. It can be prayed a decade at a time whenever we have a few minutes leisure. We need not make a display of it but can have it in our pockets and pray as we walk along. Let us therefore, as loving children, heed our Holy Father's appeal and use the Rosary constantly until peace once more reigns upon the earth. Mark Lecker. 'N t Q'- 47 : MAKE FRIENDS, NOT ENEMIES F someone is forced to do a task, he frequently harbors a feeling of animos- ity. The only satisfactory way to get persons to cooperate is to make them realize that they are doing a favor for the one who requests the service, not merely performing the work at the sound of a command. One may try to win an enemy, but he must remember, "Enemies are never truly conquered until their friendship is won". --.1 Patricia Wegemer. A WAR HAT does any country profit by declaring war on its neighbor? It may gain additional land for a naval base, a powder plant, a gun factory, a shipyard, or land on which its people can settle. What does it cost the victorious nation? Several hundred thousand lives, several million dollars, endless trains of ammunition and supplies, lifelong debts, and destruction of land on whose crops life depends. No piece of land acquired by war, no base, no railroad is worth so many men's lives, so much sacrifice, and so much harm and destruction. Only heart- less greed can account for it all. What a great world this would be if all nations could live peacefully with themselves and their neighbors according to Gods command, "Love thy neigh- bor as thyself." -..,... Ierome Breindel. HOLY NAME SOCIETY HE Society of the Holy Name is one which should appeal to every one, young and old, because ot its aim to create more and more reverence for our Lord, Iesus Christ. That it does appeal to many is proved by the fact that in the United States today there are two million five hundred thousand members enrolled. With the years this number will grow and by the joint efforts of these men others will be made to realize what wonderful progress can be made in combating blasphemy and in promoting reverence for this greatest of all names. Its members bind themselves, not only to avoid using the Holy Name irreverently, but to use it with love and due respect at all times. Further to promote the honor due Our Lord and Savior, Iesus Christ, and to make some atonement for the insults heaped upon Him the Society here in St. Marys has fixed a day, the second Sunday of each month, on which all ol its members receive Holy Communion as a body, thus giving proof of their attachment and fidelity to lesus in the Holy Eucharist. Let us all become members of this noble Society and promote ever more the reverence due the Holy Name. C. Ehrensberger. "'3' nb- 4 8 Q fi x.. GOOD SPORTSMAN SHIP WONDER how many know the meaning of good sportsmanship? Much is embraced by this expression: It means the ability to take a beating with- out becoming angry, to be a victor without getting a swelled head, not to razz a loser, but rather to show him kindness and consideration, and many more such qualities. If good sportsmanship is learned when young, it will have its good effects in later life. It leaves its impression upon one's character and will aid in meeting fairly all competition in business and wherever opposition is encoun- tered. Without it, competition in athletics the world over, would have to be eliminated, and commerci.al warfare would take the place of honest endeavor among producers. William Robacker. l.4T. ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY HE St. Vincent De Paul Society which has been organized in St. Marys is one that should get every encouragement because the more we help it along the more good it can do, especially for the poor. These they help with what they receive through voluntary contributions, collections in poor boxes, and collections in church. Many more should join this society for they can do much for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick and the poor and gain many graces for themselves. The society has been greatly enriched with in- dulgences by the Holy Fathers, since its foundation many years ago. "The St. Vincent De Paul Society is known in every country, in every dis- trict, in every town, wherever is found the Catholic Church. All persons should join it particularly the young men, for whom the society was organized. The main object of the society is to sanctify souls, including our own. In addition to this its members distribute material relief, and endeavor to make families self-sustaining by securing employment. They make regular weekly visits to homes of the poor, hospitals, and other institutions to see how their bene- ficiaries are getting along. During such visits these members have many opportunities to look after their spiritual needs. Conference reports show that many children are brought to the parochial schools, improperly executed marriages rectified and many persons brought back to the practice of their religion, baptisms and funerals are arranged." lames Brunner. bf?--571 523 ite- 49 'y y .al is T51 Ji-Q.. L WEP' Si. Wollburgcfs Grotto ond Convent Grounds r sf ...sim LOVE TO PRAY THE ROSARY . 'Xi- N eminent bishop of our own day said regarding the Rosary devotion. "Could I but Wah fiery tongue cry into the ear of all souls to whom Chris- tianity is dear: Love the Rosary and pray it fervently! Study the holy Rosary! Read, day after day, in this truly golden manual!" In addressing a group of pilgrims, about ten months before his death, Pope Pius IX commended the Rosary to the faithful as his last remembrance, in the following words: "Pray the Rosary in common every evening in your homes! Fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, daily pray this prayer, so beautiful, so richly endowed with indulgences! Accept this, my children, as my parting word and as a remembrance which I leave to you!" The Rosary differs from other prayers in that it combines mental with oral prayer in a very agreeable manner. When saying the Rosary, one may, in spirit, visit the holy places in Palestine, which have been made sacred by the presence of the Son of God. ln fifteen pictures the Rosary presents the most important and instructive truths of the Catholic Faith. Being sustained the while by oral prayer, the meditation awakens pious reflections and salutary resolutions in the heart. For this reason the Rosary may be termed the "Little Gospel of Iesus Christ." Countless conversions and graces have been obtained through the recita- tion of the Rosary, for Christ will not refuse to hear the supplications of His Mother, whom He was pleased to obey whilst on earth. Was there ever a time in the history of the world, when there was greater need for an interces- sor with God, that He may withhold His avenging Hand? Most assuredly not, when in these present days there exists a state of war in many countries, when others are racked by "rumors of war", when, too much is heard of "Pre- paredness" and increase of Armament of nations. How could the belligerents be better prepared to meet their formidable enemy here, or their all-just Iudge hereafter than to be armed with the graces and blessings accompanying the daily recitation of the Rosary! The Rosary saved France from the Albigenses, the Rosary saved Europe in the waters of Lepanto, the Rosary saved Spain from the slavery of Satan, and it is the Rosary that must save the world from ruin today. There is yet another very urgent impetus to say the Rosary, namely, sym- pathy for the suffering souls in Purgatory who are unable to render any satis- faction except through the patient bearing of excruciating pains, until the dross of sin is purged away. By the indulgences of the Rosary the pains of the suf- fering souls may be shortened. Every prayer brings relief, alleviation and help. It is for the triumph of the Crossp it is for the honor and praise of Mary to help these poor souls to attain eternal bliss. How acceptable to God is this beautiful garland of fragrant, heavenly flowers of prayers and meditations, and what power they have at the throne of His omnipotence and mercy, may be gathered from the following promises made by the Blessed Virgin to Blessed Alanus: "The Rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant Divine mercies, it will substitute in hearts love of God for love of the world, elevate them to desire heavenly and eternal goods. Oh! that souls would sanctify themselves by this means!" ug- 4' 51 1 . f.r..,.,i-2-ffifs-. .-s.bfri.....- "Those who shall recite my Rosary piously, considering its mysteries, will not be overwhelmed by misfortune, nor die a bad death.

FINAL PENITENCE OLLY Carter was busy in the kitchen, but her thoughts were not on her work. Her mind was constantly reverting to the time when her only son was still in school. How different life was thenl Then she did not have to plead with her son to go to church on Sundays and to frequent the sacraments. When he was in school he never missed the reception of Communion on a Sunday or First Friday. I-low much happier both he and she were then. They never spent an unhappy moment, he was always willing to help wherever he was able. Her thoughts were interrupted by Iack's appearance. "Mont, don't forget to wake me early tomorrow," was his greeting. With these woifs he hurried away. "Well," thought Molly when lack had disappeared, "If there were only something I could do for that boy. For the past three years I have been pray- ing fervently for him, but my prayers remain unanswered. How often lack had promised me to see Father Thomas, but his resolutions die as soon as they are formed." After a day spent in futile musings, Molly's night was restless. Finally she arose and knelt down before an altar of Mary at the other end of the room. After saying the rosary she again retired. How much better she now felt! She was so relieved. "Something would surely happen to bring lack back to his God," she reflected. The next morning after lack had gone to work, Molly felt very nervous, just as if something dreadful were about to occur. Again she knelt before her altar and said the rosary. She had just completed the last decade when the doorbell rang. She hurried to open the door, but she could not help wondering what anyone would want so early in the morning. Upon opening the door she found a strange gentleman there. "Are you Mrs. Carter?" he began. "Yes," was her reply. "Well, can you come with me? Your son met with an accident this morning as he was going to work. I-le is at the hospital and is calling for you." Quickly Molly put on her coat and followed the stranger. When she arrived at the hospital she was met by a nurse who took her to her son's bedside. Iack opened his eyes, and said, "Hello Mom." Molly tried to answer, but tears stopped her. She whispered to the doctor, and then turned to lack. "lack, wouldn't you like to see Father Thomas now?" "Yes, but will Father come?" was the reply. Molly asked the nurse to call the priest and in a few moments Father Thomas was at the bedside of lack Carter. He heard the boy's confession, and gave him the Last Sacraments. I-le knew the boy would live only a few hours at the longest. After a brief interval he said, "lack, how do you account for being spared in the accident, you know your companion died immediate- ly". "Yes, I know", was the reply, "But you see, Father, when I was a small ug u 2 i 1 Q'- 52 ,An rl ,ff Ngff Pm 4- 35 if .f--"N X' sf K 41 , - Q - 1 ,WMQ K s .

But God knows now that I love Him again and He is taking me to live with Him." lack died at peace with His Maker, for which grace his Mother and Father Thomas never ceased to be grateful.

One morning in the month of February, someone proposed that the sen- iors enter the Sunday Visitor Pro-America Contest. It is needless to say the proposition was hailed with enthusiasm. Being anxious to learn more about the contest, copies of the current Sun- day Visitor Were secured. The entrance requirements were then read and a vote was cast to raise the necessary funds. The president of the club was appointed to take care of the weekly correspondence. Each week two questions were published in the Sunday Visitor, the total number of questions appearing in the March 31 issue. Nothing could have been a greater incentive to do research work than -the pleasure experienced in solving these problems. y Although the clubs fail in winning prizes, their untiring efforts will not be in vain, for they have acquired a broader knowledge in sacred and profane history. -. ,. .- Erma A.

NEAR THE INFANT While others gaily chatted Each whisper to her Saviour Of Christmas gifts and joys, Was a prayer of love divine, A little girl was thinking To which His Sacred Heart Of the Child who had no toys. In mercy doth incline. For she had seen Him lying, "I love Thee Little Iesus There in the crib so bare, Oh, stay with me each day: He, her God and Maker, From danger always keep me To Whom men gave no care. And teach me how to pray." She softly drew to the manger, "I hope in Thee dear Infant, And there began to pray Please make me pure like Thee, To Iesus Infant Saviour From sin and all temptation Who there so gently lay. Oh! deign to keep me free." He hears the baby speaking, He knows the prattle well, And gives a blessing greater Than human tongue can tell. Lorenzina Marconi. ...gg B W 54 .LQ EARLY HISTORY OF ST. MARYS HE history of St. Marys dates back to 1841, at which time a committee from Baltimore and Phil- adelphia were chosen to go west- ward in search of uncultivated lands for the purpose of establishing a colony. No one really knows just how this committee found its way into the wilds of Elk County, but such was the case, and they report- ed very favorably on the site. The land was purchased from the Fox Land Company of Massachusetts. At the first meeting, held in Baltimore on October 25, 1842, this settlement was approved and the papers were signed by Iohn Kernhass, Secretary. Twenty-nine Warrants of land were purchased in the counties of Clearfield, Iefferson and McKeen lElk was not formed at that timel. The contract pro- vided for the last payment to be made in 1849. A committee of four from Baltimore were chosen to start on November first and meet a similar party from Philadelphia, thence to proceed to the site for the settlement. Their route was to Columbia, Pennsylvania, by railroad, thence by canal to Freeport and from there by overland route to their destina- tion. lt may be stated here also that the land was bought for the total of 3324568.62 or about 350.75 an acre. The party arrived at Kersey and took up quarters with a Mr. Iohn Green. His house was not large enough for all so some had to sleep in the barn. With only a few blazed trees as a guide, these men left their families in comfortable quarters, and following those few indica- tions of a hunter's path, arrived on the banks of the Elk Creek, December eight, 1842. The first log hut was erected on the hill where now stands the St. Marys High School. December eight, being the feast of the Immaculate Conception, and incidentally the name of the first white woman who trod the soil being Mary, the colony was named St. Marys. During the first weeks, the men were busy clearing lands, building log huts covered with hemlock bark, cutting and opening roads, and then on Saturdays they returned to their families in Kersey. In late December, the work having proceeded satisfactorily for housing purposes, the entire party moved to their future homes. In the spring of 1843 the colony was increased by a new installment from Baltimore and Philadel- phia, and thenceforth the new colony steadily progressed. Ignatius Garner became the first burgess. The St. Marys Fire Company No, 1 was incorpor- ated in May 1875. Soon public buildings, industries and business places were established. The Pen Lumber Company was chartered in March 1887, the first brewery was established by Michael Hantz in 1845, the Luhr Hotel opened its doors in 1847, Ioseph Luhr, proprietor, the Franklin House was erected in 1849, followed by the Commercial Hotel, built by the Riley Brothers, the Wash- ington House was built on Center Street where the present Kaul home stands. The Catholic Church is contemporary with the first settlement in Ben- zinger Township. A first church building was erected in 1845 in the Silver Creek district. Ths building was burned in 1850, giving place to the present stone church, on Church Street, completed in 1852. Eymard Luhr. 1 : 55 .. CEM - THE EXPERIENCE OF A SILVER DOLLAR NE bright sunny afternoon, on a sun-baked desert of the west, near the foot of a long mountain range a weary discouraged old prospector about ready to cease his seemingly endless hunt for silver ore decided to try out one more promising bit of territory before quitting for the day. After a few min- utes of intensive activity his eyes suddenly dilated with joy as he discovered a rich vein of the metal he had been seeking for so many years. The news soon leaked out, a wild rush followed, and soon the region was swarming with prospectors. Some of the first metal mined soon reached the U. S. Mint and there is where this particular coin, along with many others, came into exis- tence. But these recently issued dollars were slightly defective and the Gov- ernment called them in. All but one of the coins were returned to the mint. This one elusive silver dollar found its way to the pocket of a ship captain. Shortly after, the captain sailed on a long cruise to China. Upon landing in China the Captain went into a crowded street on the way to a hotel. Suddenly he was jostled roughly and after he recovered from his shock he found that the silver dollar, along with several other coins he had in his possgpsion, as well as the pocketbook, were missing. After he was convinced that the purse could not be recovered, he went on his way. The pickpocket meanwhile hur- ried to a carriage and paid for a ride thus to celebrate his recent adventure. However one silver dollar slipped from his pocket onto the carriage seat with- out his perceiving it. After he got off the carriage it was rented by a Britisher who discovered the coin and pocketed it. There it remained until he reached the end of his journey, India, when he disposed of it by giving the coin as a tip to a waiter on a liner headed for South Africa, who disposed of the coin to an African for a special service. This African was hired soon after by a hunter to accompany an expedition into the jungle in search of big game. In the jungle the expedition was attacked by a huge lion and in his haste to escape, the guide dropped the pouch which contained the dollar. An inquisi- tive little jungle animal found the pouch with the coin and carried it away to its home where he stored it away. Many years later, on one of his many hunts for wild animals to supply the zoos, Frank Buck discovered the same little strange animal and pursued it to its den where he captured it and its treasured silver dollar. His imagination was stretched far wondering how a U. S. coin found its way to this strange hideout. After his return to America he thrilled his little nephew with the strange story of the dollar which he gave him for a birthday gift. While in his school library the little fellow chanced upon a book stating the value of several rare coins. He noted that a certain silver dollar was worth very much because it was the only one in existence. Upon returning home he ascertained that his silver dollar was the one thus rated. He ran with it to a rich rare coin collector who was overjoyed upon seeing the coin for which he had often sought in vain. A thousand dollars was the exchange price and both man and boy were happy. The silver dollar now graces a special spot in a "rare coin" case of the 'collector. Here it will probably rest for a long, long time. Bernard Shields. .. H E in 56 wif? Snaps of Nature vii-Fit . . - A CHRISTMAS STORY EEP in the valley, amid tall pines, bushy fir trees, and spreading hemlock, stood a little cottage painted green and white. This little haven of peace gave shelter to a family of three, namely, an invalid mother, a boy of sixteen named Donald, and a girl of nine years named Iulia, the father of the family having died two years previous to the opening of this little story. It was two days before Christmas. Grandfathers clock on the mantel hdltl chimed the hour of nine, and the provider of the little family, Donald, had not returned from his day's work. As the moments passed, Iulia, who was sitting by the open fireplace awaiting her brother's arrival, became more and more anxious about his safety. Leaving her place by the fire, she procured a lan- tern, lighted it and placed it at the window. The child stood there for some time trying to peer into the darkness. Suddenly her reverie was disturbed by the sound of a low moan issuing from her mother's room. Iulia turned im- mediately and went to her bedside. "Has Donald returned?" asked the mother. Iulia replied in the negative, but assured her mother that the boy would arrive soon. However, Iulia was not without misgiving concerning her brother's well-being. So great was her appreewg ion that she put a shawl around her shoulders, opened the outside door tepped into the night air. Espying a form emerging from the forest and fe ' ing it to be other than Donald, Iulia became alarmed, quickly re- entered the house and bolted the door. Almost immediately after the closing of the door, there was a loud rap and a rattling of the knob. "Who-o-oo is there?" stammered Iulia. She gave a sigh of relief when she heard her brother say, "Do not fear Iulia, it is only Donny." Ioyfully, she unbolted the door to admit Donald. The boy had his arms filled with packages and took them to his mother. He had a warm dress for his mother, a pair of shoes for Iulia and provisions for the next day's meals. Donald had received a Christmas gift of fifty dollars from the manager. This news was hailed with great joy by both mother and daughter. The next day Donald went shopping to buy presents for the family. He hid the presents until evening. After Iulia had retired he trimmed the tree, placed the presents beneath the tree, and filled the three stockings at the fireplace. Donald arose very early Christmas morning, and called his mother and Iulia to see their presents. The mother and daughter, dressed in the warm clothing that Don- ald had procured for them, came to sit before the open fireplace to enjoy an hour in the spirit of Christmas. During the course of the conversation the mother told Iulia that the manager of the store was sending his auto to take them to church, and that she gladly accepted the kind offer, because, due to ill health, it had been many days since she had been to church. The mother was very weak and required assistance in walking to the automobile, but Iulia could see a change in her mother and knew that she was on her way to recovery. Arriving at the church the family prayed most fervently, and thanked God for all the graces and blessings of this Christmas day.

" C "' T ffI4.M Q...Q, OUR SODALITIES OTH the Saint Mary's parish and the Sacred Heart parish have a Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary for girls. Since Mary, the Virgin Mother of jesus, is our ideal in all our undertakings, in school, at home, and in our social affairs, we are happy to belong to this organization. Spiritually the Sodality affords us many blessings-the monthly Mass and Holy Communion, the Conferences given by the Spiritual Directors, the prayers and Masses said for deceased members, together with unity in objec- tive which is to become more like our Heavenly Queen, all are blessings which we all greatly need and desire. 'l'he meetings for both Sodalities are held once a month. The Saint Mary's Sodality meets in the Central High School building and the Sacred Heart So- dality in the Sodality rooms in the Sacred Heart School building. These meetings are opened with prayer by the Spiritual Advisors. A conference given by the Spiritual Director is then given. In these conferences Father gives a good explanation of the truths of our Religion, and the duties of our State of life. A financial report is then given and plans for future social func- tions are then discussed. lt is the custom of our Sodalities to receive Holy Communion in a body the first Sunday of each IQ h. Occasionally we enjoy a Communion breakfast which is served in the? sement of the Central High School for the members of the Sodality of the Saint Mary's parish and in the Sodality rooms for mem- bers of the Sodality of the Sacred Heart parish. After the breakfast the mem- bers often enjoy a game of cards or bowling. The Sodality offers to its members, not only spiritual benefits but includes many and varied social functions. The monthly meetings hold first place among these activities. A lunch committee and an entertaining committee are appointed. Plans are discussed about picnics, dances, and skating par- ties, etc. Suggestions are received and plans are completed. After the meeting has adjourned the usual social is held. A memorable incident occurred when four of us girls were hostesses. We had planned a lunch for fifty girls because at previous meetings there had been a good at- tendance. We were preparing lunch in the kitchen when one of us girls went out to see how many were present at the meeting. She counted nineteen and hurried back to the kitchen to tell the surprising news. Were we in a predica- ment? After we had finished serving the girls, we sold the remaining cakes. Our financial report for the evening showed we had made a net profit of five cents. We often recall the enjoyable time we had that evening preparing lunch. Many amusing incidents have been related by members about their bowling and card scores. For the past several years a Hallowe'en party has been held by the Saint Mary's Sodalists. Last year a "Scavenger Hunt" provided pleasurable exer- cise. Those present were divided into groups. Each group had to go out and get certain things named on the list. The first group who returned won the prize. The Christmas party is another of our annual celebrations. Each girl brings a gift which is hung on a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. "Santa Claus" distributes the gifts to each member. Various games are played and then a dainty lunch is served. All Sodality members look forward to the annual picnic which is held wg 3 E E 60 Above, Andrew Kaul Memorial Hospltol before the llrog to the rgllt scene cl dedication. Hospital in Ruins.

These picnics are held at some camp or at Zwack's Grove, During the afternoon the Sodalists enjoy swimming, playing tennis, swinging, hiking, boat riding and playing games. At 5:30 supper is served after which the girls either return home or continue the amusements of the afternoon. The Sacred Heart Sodalists have a card and a bowling tournament in which all members are entitled to take part. The tournament is closed by a banquet. Three or four times a year comedies and dramas are presented for the public in the Sacred Heart Auditorium. The female characters for these are selected from the Sodality while the male characters are chosen from the Auditorium Players' Club. These plays are directed by our Spiritual Advisor, Reverend Father David, O.S.B. The Sodality of the St. Mary's Parish endeavors from time to time to raise funds for the special needs of the church and school. A Mothers' Day dinner is held to which the public is invited. Financially and socially these dinners are a success. Card parties are also held for the same purpose. The present officers of the Saint Mary's Sodality are: President, Veronica Fritz, Vice President, Miriam Schaut, Secretary, Laura Simbeck, Treasurer, Catherine Wilhelm. The officers of the Sacred Heart Parish are: President, Anna Cuneo, Vice President, May Hammer, Secretary, Rosemary Bauer, and Treasurer, Loretta Hagan. These officers have shown much interest in making the Sodality become a well known organization. Dorothy Minnick and Alice Hacherl. ONE WHO CARES As I kneel-the candles burning- To say my evening prayers, I find my earthly Heaven By praying to One Who Cares. He is the God above me Who keeps me free from sin And day by day He opens His heart to let me in. He talks to me and I to Him Of earthly trials and cares, And He so calmly, willingly All my troubles shares. I ask what He would like me do To please Him most of all, He whispers gently to my heart To heed His every call. Again when day is dawning, I kneel to say my prayers, And feel content and happy Because there's One Who Cares. Marie Simbeck. l,...

The deer goes scampering along its path Down to the lake to take a bath. The chipmunk climbs its favorite tree For there he knows that he will be free. The squirrel holds high his fluffy tail While racing along the shady trail. The groundhog perched on his hind feet Whirls round and runs in quick retreat A little rabbit pricks up his ears His enemies' treads he thinks he hears The old black bear slow lumbers along Intent, perhaps, on a night-bird's song.

MARYS , T the present time the outlook for aeronautics in St. Marys is very encour- aging. A flying club has been organized, three planq, two Taylor cubs and an autogyro, have been purchased and a landing field has been prepared. The men responsible for the work accomplished are: Alvin Lombardo, Iimmy Engel, Reggie Feldbauer, and the two Valentine brothers, Odo and Firmin. There are a number of interesting followers. This club cannot be too highly praised for the work they have done. Starting from the ground up, as they did, was by no means an easy task. This locality presents many difficulties to those who would fly. Climatic conditions are not conducive to flyng and the mountainous region in which we live makes it well nigh impossible to have a satisfactory field. Nothing daunted, however, our energetic flyers have succeeded in making for them- selves a tolerably good flying field. The Valentine brothers, who are in joint possession of a 1936 Cub, and the others, part owners of a 1937 model, take off here regularly and soar over the surrounding hills. With these is also seen an autogyro which the boys acquired by much work and many weeks of saving. The flying is under the direction of Alvin Lombardo who is trying to in- crease the club membership to at least fifty. The small fee required covers the cost of training and grants part ownership of the plane. We of St. Marys are much interested in this small beginning ot aeronautics and wish every member wholehearted success. Happy landing, boysl We of the Catholic High School are with you. George Meisel. .-+.- HUNTING IN PENNSYLVANIA ENNSYLVANIA is one of the best hunting areas in the United States. lt is often called "The Hunters Paradise". Note the purchase of the many non- resident licenses. Last season many hunters went home without the buck tied to the car. One of the causes, which results in the decrease of deer, is continued heavy snow fall. After a rain on the snow there forms a hard crust which the deer cannot penetrate and thus they perish for want of proper food. Lacking grazing areas, the deer must turn to the mountain laurels and hemlock. Too much of this poisons the deer. At times you can walk the woods and find runways in the deep snow. Here the deer have walked back and forth looking for food. All the branches are eaten off the trees as high as the deer can reach. A few years ago several men chopped a deer out of the ice. It had prob- ably come down to the stream for water and being famished was too weak to make its way out of the water so it fell, exhausted. Another cause, which results in the decrease of deer, is forest fires. Some of the deer are trapped in the fire and the ones that escape face starvation. One thing that can be done to solve the problem of food for deer is to cut clown young saplings. This is what the sportsmen of western Pennsyl- --on -1 .,,.. 68 xx, XXX ,J x,,fAx Seen C11 the Local Airport gt f, 'T 'fffvflf 'T gift- , L- "--:-um-, V- ,?' THE GOLF COURSE IN ST. MARYS ov. Q. ...eQ- Vania did. About fifteen hundred men from cities and towns of western Pennsylvania came to Elk and Cameron Counties during the winter to cut down young saplings. They established headquarters at St. Marys and from there dispersed in all directions according to a pre-arranged plan, so that food was widely distributed. These cut down young saplings serve not only as food, but are a protec- tion during inclement weather, and against other animals who prey upon deer. We should do all we can to protect the deer and other game in our state. Maurice Samick. ....,...

SCOUTING H N my honor I will do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, cmd morally straight." The above statement is the one and only oath which the Boy Scouts of the world are bound to live up to. Any Scout who eliminates one or more of the above points is not a true member of the greatest youth organization of the world. Regardless where we go in the world we are almost bound to find a Scout group. We find Scouts in Canada, Brazil, Chile, Australia, Egypt, China, Scotland, England, in practically every country which recognizes God. In Red Russia, regardless where we go, we will not find a true Scout, because the government forbids the professing of God. Russia does have a youth organ- ization similar to the Boy Scouts called the Pioneers, but not until God is brought back into their country will they have true Scouts. The Scouting movement was started in England very early in the Twen- tieth Century, by Sir Eugean Lord Baden Powell. From there it was brought to America in l9lU and was officially organized in the month of February, by William D. Boyce, Chicago publisher and traveler, and a number of other youth-minded men, including our President. From that time up to the pres- ent more than six million Scouts have been enrolled in the United States. The real Boy Scout is just an ordinary boy that has become a Scout. He finds all kinds of fun in the things around him, he can tell North or South by the moss on the trees or East or West by the shadows they cast. When he travels at night he finds his way by means of the stars the same as the Indians and early Pioneers did. When it comes to starting a fire the absence of matches does not stop him, he will go right ahead and start one by rubbing sticks together or striking a piece of steel against some flint. Once he gets a fire going, what savory dishes he can prepare out in the open! He never low- ers himself to cheap talk, or to make use of tobacco or alcohol. When he talks of some one he only says the best about him. Every day he strives to do his daily good turn. A good turn does not mean performing the things required by good manners but going a little out of one's way to do something for somebody. He respects the laws of his town and strives to uphold its standard. And how a Scout does love to go camping! All day long he is out in God's clean air and at night when the campfire is growing low he will dream of what tomorrow has in store for him. Q Why should anyone wait until tomorrow to join this great Scouting group. The membership fee is fifty cents a year and this is an appropriation towards certificates and the advancement of Scouting to other boys. Regard- less of how old you are you can always join the Scouts. Age bars no one. Boys ranging from nine to twelve can join the now famous Cub Scout Pack, boys older than twelve can join up with a local Boy Scout Troop, or if Scouts are scarce in his locality he can become a Lone Scout. Boys interested in a higher phase of Scouting and are fifteen years of age or older can join the Senior Scouting group. Along with these come the men of today who are eighteen or older. These train the boys of tomorrow. It may be interesting to know just what the Boy Scouts in our section of the country are doing. As probably all know, Scouts are quite a new organ- ization in St. Marys. In fact Scouting has been in our community for only -all z: 2 :a 71 -l W 0-og .9 Qs... o -0- N "usd OHOUQQQ 504, I X ' .1 A -5. Ql - I 3 nqxfob pgnouq -7, Q, I Q 0 ' ' x .

Troop 99 of the Kiwanis Club comes next, followed by Troop 97 of the St. Marys Church, and last but not least Troop 96 of the Benzinger Township for rural boys. During the time that St. Marys has had Scouting in its midst the Scouts have rendered wonderful service to the community. They help at certain Church socials, render aid in regulating traffic, act as information bureaus to visitors and, in many other appreciable ways give aid where needed. The members also do good to one another. All Scouts receive valu- able training in the tactics of Scouting. Regulations are few and these are not regulations of the army. They do not go into the field carrying a gun for practice in military maneuvers but just meander over hill and dale carry- ing a pack and dragging a stick along. They also learn what is to their ad- vantage in camping. This knowledge is given to our boys through an annual Camporee held at Mountain Run, the Boy Scout reservation for the Bucktail Council. This Camporee is run on a competitive basis. A patrol of Scouts enter the competition and at the end of the period the Patrol or Patrols eaming 850 points or more out of a possible 1000 are considered standard campers. Along with the Camporee the Catholic Scouts have an annual Retreat at their Res- ervation. This is a day dedicated to prayer and meditation. The Retreat is under the leadership of Father Conway of the Erie diocese. The schedule ol the day consists of Mass and Communion early in the morning, with the Blessed Sacrament exposed throughout the day. Sermons or exhortations are given by different priests, some games are played, and at night the day is closed with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, thus completing a day dedicated to God by God-fearing Scouts and their leaders. At Mountain Run are also held the annual summer camping periods for the purpose of getting the boys out into the open air. Here they are given plenty of good, healthful food, prepared by some of the finest chefs ever heard of, and they are educated in practically every field ot knowledge and achieve- ment desirable for boys, such as swimming, nature study, marksmanship, Woodcraft-practically everything possible under such circumstances. At this summer camp, daily inspections are made, and awards given to the cleanli- est. At night a camp-fire is built about which assemble the entire camping group, featuring the idea of entertainment for all. Also one night of each year is set aside for athletics in which a number of the fellows show their ability of self-defense. A paper of the camp news and activities is published daily until the end of the camping period. In connection with this little history of Scouting, we present on the opposite page, a few pictures of camp life taken while our Scouts were spending a week on their camping grounds. Our camps are open to visitors--Come and see us. Scout R. Wolfel. at t -:nw ff 72 P -4 CAMPING DAYS 'rs " ii' :fi Q.

While they did not win the league championship the Crusaders put up ci stiff fight which fell short of the goal by a single league game, the victor being St. Ber- nards of Bradford. The Crusaders began practice early in October with 15 players reporting. Only one member of last year's squad, Paul Sorg, remained, the rest having been lost by graduation. After much deliberation the following members were selected to represent Central High on the starting team: Paul Sorg, Bill Robacker Harold Cheatle, Whitey Rupprecht, and Ioe Schaberl. The first game took place on November twenty-eight when the Crusaders met and defeated the Alumni, the final score reading 43-31. This game was followed by a series of others with some defeats which would have discour- aged many teams and coaches but not our boys. Each night saw them prac- ticing for that perfection which they finally attained. So when the league season advanced they felt that they were ready to meet Bradford. However, though thy put up a stiff battle, the final score showed Bradford ahead. Determined to win in the next encounter they met and defeated Ridgway, 35-18. Now followed a series of victories punctured by one loss, to Bradford. These victories were: Punxsy 38-33, DuBois 30-l7, Ridgway 22-11, Punxsy 49-32, DuBois 33-27. Thus ended the league season, the Crusaders holding second place, Bradford being one game ahead. Among the eighteen non-league games the following were notable: Brockway defeated them twice, 28-27 and 17-15. Both were exceedingly close games the final outcome of which was in doubt until the final seconds of play. Another close game occurred when they were defeated by Iohnsonburg in an extra period 34-32. There is an old saying that revenge is sweet and this also applies to the Crusaders. When Clearfield defeated them they were determined that this would not be repeated. Accordingly when they again played St. Francis High of Clearfield they defeated them 45-20. Then they met the 1939 state Catholic Champs of Oil City but were defeated 35-17. In a short period of time they were victorious over James City, Wilcox, and Renova, before meeting their strongest opposition in the face of a hard, fast-playing St. Vincent's squad. This game they lost 36-20 although they played on even terms for a good part of the contest. They ended the season with a smashing victory over Renova 45-10. Next year's team bids well for Central because four of the first string will return-the lone graduating member being Bill Robacker. The second and third strings will be intact except for Lawrence Lechner, also a member of this year's graduating class. Ioe Schaberl was the star of this year's team, scoring 205 points, Sorg the runner-up, with 191 points. Third place in the line-up was taken by Rup- precht with 155 points. The Crusaders outscored their opponents 721-706 in 26 games played. Rev. Fr. Martin was a kind, ever ready athletic director, assisting the players in every way possible.

Although over sixty years of age, she claimed, to her social circle, to be not a day over forty-five. Her appearance was not pleasing because she was too plump for her height, her eyes and nose too large for her face, her hair was orchid on spots. She manifested little regard for the few friends she had, but lavished all her care on the Chinese poodle, "Wonge," which was made her constant com- panion. Strange, too, how she could like the dog, for it was not a beauty. It had long red hair, enormous eyes, and long ears. It was always barking as though it were trying to expound the theories of Confucius. On one particular Sunday afternoon, Mrs. Simpson and "Wonge" went for their beauty stroll. Holding Wonge by the chain, she stooped over her pet to ask-"Shall We walk in the park, Dumpling'?" For answer she received a little bark which she took to be one of assent. Accordingly they went merrily on their way quite unconscious of impending danger. They had not advanced very far when Mrs. Simpson sighted a truck com- ing down the park road. The conveyance came to a stop beside the startled Mrs. Simpson and Wonge. When lol out of the cab jumped a burly, stern- looking man, none other than Spike McCarthy, the dog catcher, who addressed Mrs. Simpson thus, "Sorry to trouble you, Lady, but do you have a license for your dog? Spike picked up the poodle and felt the collar for the tag, but there was none there. The officer then explained that since the law so stipulated the fact that all dogs without license must be taken into custody, he would take Wonge with him. Mrs. Simpson became very excited and in her turn explained that her dog never wore its old collar on Sunday, but that the old collar was substituted on Sunday by a little velvet band. This did not con- vince Spike, Who said that he would have to see the license plate. Mrs. Simp- son said that she would go home to get it. "Oh, lady, l'll have to keep the pup with me, while you run home to get the tag." Mrs. Simpson was shocked to hear that statement and said she feared Wonge might suffer a nervous breakdown due to this unnecessary disturbance. "Well, then, climb into the truck and I shall haul both home," said the amused Spike. Following a hot, wordy battle, a truck pulled up before the home of Mrs. Abigail Simpson. From the cab stepped the embarrassed lady of the house, who was carrying nothing now. She walked hurriedly into the house, only to reappear fifteen minutes later, carrying a small leather collar on the side of which was attached the trouble-maker. Spike rode away, after leaving Wonge in the arms of Mrs. Simpson. Rumors spread abroad about the ride that Mrs. Simpson was compelled to accept. This worthy dame refused to extend invitations to receive any calls for a period of several weeks. After this self-enforced seclusion, she regained her self-possession and mingled once more with her relatives and friends. They, on their part, never mentioned the unhappy incident. Though known only to the members of the household, Wonge wore his leather collar not only on week days but on Sundays as well. Claire Marie Boylan. : -- 79 Jil Q TRUST T was a bright sunny afternoon when Bob and I decided to go for strawber- ries. We had taken our lunch along and on the way we had to cross a few swamps and streams. Upon approaching the first swamp we were alarmed by a buzzing sound. However we found it was nothing but a rattlesnake so we kept on going. Bob was the one who always liked to take the lead, so when he got a considerable distance ahead he sat down to rest. However he didn't stay put very long for he was soon jumping and yelling like a wild man. Well, wouldn't you if you sat on a buv: ' ' -bees' nest? While passing by a farm I' i he leg of my pants in the mouth of a big bull dog. While running from the dog we had to crawl over a fence and it was there that Bob left part of his shirt. Finally we reached the slrawberry patch but decided we were in need of a rest before starting to pick and so lay down in the shade under a tree. To our surprise we found a small bird that had fallen out of its nest. Upon look- ing up into the tree we saw the little mother bird almost terror stricken over the loss of the little one. Bob, who takes pride in calling himself a friend of animals and a second Tarzan, would take it up to its nest. At the sight of this the little mother bird almost fell off the limb on which she was perched for she thought he was go- ing to kill the little bird. All was well, the little bird was restored to its nest and Bob slarted down the tree. But as the old saying goes, "the quickest way to get down is to fall down". This, accordingly, is what he did when the limb on which he was standing broke. He only suffered a sprained wrist and several bruises, so all was well. The little mother bird was very happy because her young one had been restored to her. Her needless fear just goes to show that many go through life weeping over dangers that really do not exist.

Pursuing her kittenish way. if 1: i- ic When Tab awoke, shelearned the truth- Great chaos reigned thruout the stable: The door was off, the rain blew in, Poor pussy's dream was but a fable. Agnes Leithner, 14, DISAPPOINTED MANNEBS I dreamt I was in heaven I can't remember what to do Last night when in my bed, When saying please and thanks to you, But when I woke at seven With many duties to think about, I found I was not dead. My manners suddenly are crowded out. Lawrence Lechner. Alice Hacherl. -aaa : 2 an 4 iv' 80 PREFERENCES OF THE SENIOR GIRLS xi. W- fo Mary Iane desires sport, "Wiggie" likes a winter resort.

The man was crippled with the rheumatiz Grandpa tells a tale so sad His legs were racked with ache and pain Of what happens to girls that are bad He tried to walk and said, "Gee whizI" So I'm going to be as good as I can be I'll have to buy a walking cane.

Monica Bauer. .1,i VAGABOND DREAMER A Vagabond youth The youth jumped up At the end of day With sparkling eyes Lay down to rest He left this earth On the new mown hay. To dwell in the skies. The setting sun A flyer was he Sent a ray of light And in his plane On a silver plane He broke no records In winged flight. But won great fame. -0- George Meisel. 14..- REGRET I am no poet I'm sorry to say But "Do your best" is my battle cry. A verse is the assignment in English today So the best I can do is to earnestly try. Oh, there is the school bell ringing now: And the task here before me is yet to do! What excuse can I give that the work is not done? I'll just say: "The time was too short to get through." .-41:2 Herman Grotzinger. 2 I :E Qw .-5 fo- f e pe I-is Il N- 3 if 'X P XX "' OUR MORNING VISIT After entering life's busy mart, memory will frequently carry us hack to our school days, which were filled with trials cmd consolations, serving as stepping stones to our goal. The trials we shall forget for each day we placed them in the Sacred Heart of the Tabernacle during our morning visit. This same visit has been our greatest consolation because dur- ing the holy Mass we followed step by step the sufferings of our dear Lord who immolated Himself for us on Calvary and who now immolates Himself in an unbloody manner for us in the holy Mass. When approaching to receive our Infinite Treasure we made acts of love and desire. After receiving, we asked Him to bear the weight of our miseries and the multitude of our needs. When the august sacrifice was completed we set forth to take up the work of the day with renewed strength and courage. We felt a peace which God alone can give, and which helped us on all our ways. The blessings acquired during those holy visits will remain with us and sustain us in the path of virtue until the trials of life are over and we are welcomed by the Eucharistic Guest for Whom we brought our daily sacrifices. Lorenzina Marconi. -L01 TRUST When the road is narrow And thorns grow by its side There is One who reigns above us, Our Father and our guide. Lorenzina Marconi. ....,..... THE DREAM OF DREAMS TO MY TEACHERS In dark recesses of our minds The happiest moments There lurk sweet dreams of many kinds I can truthfully say Of white sails 'neath the starlit skies, Will be rememb'ring my teachers All dreams wherein great beauty lies. As I journey life's way. 'Mid all these visions of delight Their goodness and kindness One dream outshines the others bright I can never repay 'Tis that of being in I-Ieav'n some day, But a fervent "God bless them" With God and His angels forever to stay. I shall frequently say. Virginia Werner. Marie Weinzierl. ..,.,- AN EVENING PRAYER When I my daily chores complete I look to God above And breathe a prayer that He might keep Me safe in all His love.
