THE KING OF KINGS
Ruler of all, from Heaven's high throne, For this our altars here are spread
O Christ, our King ere time began, With mystic feast of bread and wine
We kneel before Thee, Lord, to own Still Thy redeeming blood is shed
Thy empire o'er the heart of man. From that sore-stricken heart of Thine.
While bands of shameless men recall May heads of nations fear Thy name
The homage due to Christ their Lord, And spread Thy honor through their lands
We own Thee Sov'reign Lord of all, Our nation's laws, our arts proclaim
The King by Heaven and earth ador'd. The beauty of Thy just commands.
O Prince of Peace, O Christ, subdue Let kings the crown and sceptre hold
Those rebel hearts, Thy peace restore, As pledge of Thy supremacy:
Into Thy sheep-fold lead anew And Thou all lands, all tribes enfold '
Thy scattered sheep, to stray no more. In one fair realm of charity.
For this upon the tree of shame Iesus, to Thee be honor done,
Thy body hung, with arms spread wide, Who rulest all in equity.
The spear revealed the heart of flame With Father, Spirit, ever one
That burned within Thy sacred side. From age to age eternally.

HITA M. CHEATLE
Docility, industry, cheerful-
ness and kindness are some
of Rita's characteristics. She
is found absorbed in reading
during any of her spare mo-
ments Through persistent
effort she has acquired a
desirable standing in the
Academic Course. Her am-
bition to be an "Angel of
Mercy", ministering to sul
fering humanity, will un-
doubtedly become a reality
SOPHIA E. FRITZ
This slender miss is assrdu-
ous, intelligent, very active,
and shows marked iudgment
in her character. Mathe-
matics and physics are her
favorite studies. Sophia pos-
sesses a gracious humor
and aims to furnish enjoy-
ment for others, thus she
makes friends easily. lt is
evident from her regular at-
tendance at the basketball
games that she derived
much pleasure from that
REGINA A. KUNTZ
lean is one of the younger
graduates. Her studious ap-
plication to Latin has aua-
mented her vocabulary and
helps her out in many a dil-
ficulty The enthusiasm with
which she entered into the
work of the Year Book mer-
ited for her the appreciation
of her teachers and class-
mates. She contributed lib-
erally toward the pictures
needed for the Memo. Mem-
bers of the Sodality recog-
nizing Iean's ability, chose
her for their Vice President.
LAURA F. SCHNEIDER
A scientific student and an
excellent essayist. Laura is
a very pleasing character,
ready at all times to render
assistance. Being so de-
pendable, we term her "Old
Faithful." As chairman of
the Student Council she is a
capable leader. Fortune will
certainly smile on this cle-
serving girl. May God bless
her and guide her to the
right at all times.
ESTHER M. GREGORY
Esther is one of our studious,
academic girls She is the
possessor of a beautiful so-
prano voice that has been a
source of entertainment
throughout her four years
at S M C. H. S. Alert and
prompt in answering ques-
tions in religion class, she
has helped out her class-
mates many tirnes by her
ready answers. She Will,
no doubt, be successful
when attired in the uniform
of a nurse, the noble pro-
fession to which she aspires
DOROTHY M . HASSENETTER
A quiet, studious type of
person. Dorothy is shy but
when she is approached a
smile spreads over her coun-
tenance, so magnetic that
she attracts many friends in-
to her circle. The word, "a
smile will go a long, long
way" can truly be applied
to her. She has followed
the Scientific Course and
possesses the qualifications
of the profession to which
she is inclined, that of a
EDNA M. GROTZINGER
Quiet and thoughtful, dili-
gent and punctual, Edna is
one of the more silent mem-
bers of our class Difficulties
in mathematics and physics
are frequently referred to
this ambitious stuilent who
willingly relieves her class-
mates of their perplexities
Although she resides about
five miles from church and
school she attends Mass
daily. When we hear of her
future achievements, We
shall remember with delight
that she was a member of
the class of '4l.
IANE P. GREGORY
Very dependable is lane,
generous with her services,
and gracious to all. She is
an outdoor girl who delights
in skiing. She has studious-
ly pursued the Scientific
Course in the hope of some
day becoming a Laboratory
Technician Her unfalling
cheerfulness will be an as-
set in the work she contem-
plates pursuing. H e a r t y
wishes lor your success,
PAUL P. TRGOVAC
Our worthy class president.
a friend of all, an earnest
and successful student, loyal
to teachers and school and
in the forefront of every en-
deavor. Paul has taken the
academic course and will
doubtless choose one of the
professions for his future
career. That he will make
a success of what he under-
takes is a foregone conclu-
sion. Every one will rejoice
in his success.
LAVEHN E. SCHATZ
A bright little lad that does
not let the grass grow under
his feet. A student of the
Science class, Mathematics
and Physics hold his inter-
est more than other sub-
jects, and in these he sur-
passes many of his class-
mates. Lavern is also a great
lover of the outdoors and he
level' UllSSES G ChGnCe to U59
gun or reel when the sea-
son is Open. Perhaps some
day he will make the forest
his home as game keeper
and kind protector of wild
ROBERT S. BAHSA
Another of our academic
students that is looking for-
ward to a professional ca-
reer. Latin to him is not a
dead language and he means
to make use of it in the fu-
ture. His amiable, friendly
manner towards all will go
far to win him clients should
he choose to practice law
in a few years from now.
He-'ll try to be fair to friend
and foe and so may be
judge some day.
IAMES I. IAC OB
The Vice President of our
class, and an ardent pro-
moter of the Student Council
he has done much to bring
about concerted effort to
make a success of the lat-
ter. His friendly smile and
kind disposition will go far
to foster the "Big Brother"
spirit in organizations like
the above. He followed the
science course, is fond of
athletics, was a member of
the varsity team in basket-
ball. His success here pre-
dicts his future success.
VINCENT DE PAUL BEBBLE
His devotion to the Blessed
Sacrament and the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass kept
him at the Altar as a server
during all his years of
school. It, too, prompted him
to continue his Latin in
spite of its difficulties. Up
with the lark, prompt and
regular at school, a booster
for athletics, a congenial
companion-these are traits
that will help him along in
ANTHONY A. BRENNEN
Gentlemanly, helpful, studi-
ous and Well informed, are
some traits that mark An-
thony's character, He chose
the Science Course and
proved himself a very suc-
cessful student. Doubtless
his plans for the future are
in the field of science for
which his painstaking efforts
and his patient persever-
ance promise marked suc-
cess. Should he choose the
medical profession he will
have the confidence of his
GOD OF PEACE
AND OF LOVE
SHALL BE WITH YOU."

ANGELA E. GERG
Angela leads in any activity.
She particularly delights in
relating amusing stories and
is therefore always in great
demand. There is an indefin-
able something about An-
gela, Whenever she begins
to recite, her classmates are
immediately interested. Her
charming personality and
sunny disposition are a de-
light to all who know her.
Her motto appears to be,
"Laugh and the world laughs
with you, weep and you
AGNES M. KRONENWETTER
Agnes is a commendable
student and an honor to her
class. She is zealous and
industrious and readily
adapts herself to Commercial
work. Her ambition is to be-
come a private secretary and

BEHTHA I. HERZING
Loyalty is one of Bertha's
and dependable, she will, no
doubt, be welcome in the
ranks of the teaching pro-
fession. May her ambition to
lead others on the path of
knowledge be realized. Judg-
ing from her efficiency as an
advertising manager she
would also be of valuable
service to the business world.
ALBERTA M. HOFFMAN
Alberta is one of our most
proficient students in book-
keeping. She is exact in her
work and frank in stating
her opinions. Reading, mo-
tion pictures, and basketball
games are her favorite di-
versions, "Where there's a
will there's a way" is applic-
able to this determined lass.
ZITA E. LEITHNER
"A happy soul, that all the
way to heaven hath a sum-
mer's day." Thus we can
speak of Zita. Her sunny
smiles and sociable disposi-
tion have won for her many
loving friends. She has been
of valuable assistance in the
library during the past year
and has become acquainted
with a number of books. Gei-
man is her favorite study.
ALICE R. KRONENWETTER
Gentle, fair-haired Alice is a
general favorite. Her quiet,
unassuming, and gracious
manner endear her to all.
Educational and recreational
reading takes up most of her
time. Being accustomed to
spend a few moments daily
before the tabernacle, she,
no doubt, enjoys many bless-
ings and will be happy in
whatever career she will
DOROTHY M. LION
This is another member of
our scientific group. Dorothy
hides her cares beneath a
pair of twinkling eyes and
smiling lips. She ranks with
the pleasantest members of

FLORENCE R. LEITHNER
Florence is a fine example of
school spirit. Through her un-
failing attendance at daily
Mass she derives benefits
which are a real support to
her in the promotion of the
various school projects that
present themselves tc her
keen eye. Undauntingly she
toils until a satisfactory re-
sult is attained. As class sec-
retary and throughout her
school work she has been
found capable and trust-
PAUL I. SORG
Paul is more interested in
the sciences than he is in
languages and so chose the
science course. His extra-cur-
ricular interests have been
mainly in basketball. A mem-
ber of the varsity and its
captain for the past two
years, his tireless efforts
spurred on our team to many
a victory. He is also an
angler of no mean ability.
Some of his outstanding traits
are respect for his superiors
and courtesy to all.
ALBERT I. CLARK
A member of the science class
in which he is quite efficient.
He is a friend of books and
will probably continue at
them after graduation from
high school. Thoughtful and
quiet, he will choose his fu-
ture course carefully and
pass it successfully. His
courteous and cheerful de-
meanor is appreciated by
teachers and students alike,
MICHAEL N. HERBST
Our business man who has
done more towards financing
our yearbook than any other
student, He will make an effiv
cient salesman if he chooses
to go out on the road. But
music is his chief attraction.
He is a capable performer
on the clarinet. As member
of the school orchestra, the
Iunior Band of St. Marys, and
as tenor singer in the men's
choir, he has proved both
his instrumental and vocal
talents. We hope to see him
a master musician some day.
MAURICE M. HANES
Our class artist. His quiet
and painstaking efforts have
enabled him to design most
of the drawings which ap-
pear in this book. As We
dedicated our Memo to
Christ the King of Peace he
selected the dove and the
olive branch to be prominent
throughout to the great satis-
faction of the entire class.
He is a peaceable, trust-
worthy lad and well liked by
all. His ambitions for the
future lead towards mechan-
FRANCIS V. BLEGGI
A happy-go-lucky lad at first
sight but capable of serious
thought for all that. He was
chosen class humorist and in
his own quiet and kindly way
knew how to put cheer into
us, Fields tells us to be
grateful to those authors
whose writings make us
laugh and be happy to-
gether but seriously con-
demns those who would
make him laugh at the ex-
pense of decency. Bleggi is
the kind he'd like,
IOSEPH A. HILLEBHAND
From the manner in which Io-
seph tries to explain science
problems we conclude that
he likes this subject best
among his studies. However,
wild life appeals to him more
and many an hour is spent
by him in the open following
forest trails. During his school
life he was an ardent follower
of our basketball teams and
did his part to put life and
cheer into all.

RICHARD A. FRITZ
One of our commercial stud-
ents who likes his work and
will most likely spend his
future time in an office. His
free hours will find him en-
joying the outdoors as he
loves nothing better than
open fields and shady woods.
He is of a jovial disposition,
is kind cmd charitable, and
helps to smooth over school-
room difficulties. A friend in
need, a friend indeed.
CLARENCE I. DETSCH
Another of our commercial
students. Honesty and friend-
liness are traits that are ap-
preciated in any office, and
they characterize Clarence.
He likes best of all to spend
his school hours over the

casionally by an adding ma-
chine. For outdoor 'sport he
has chosen archery which he

PATRICK G. FHIEDL
Quiet, reserved, punctual are
some of the characteristics
of Patrick. A countenance
serene which has never been
seen ruffled by temper. His
books are his pals and he is
seldom found without them.
Although his home is a con-
siderable distance from
school no one has ever found
him a moment late. In fact
he attends an early Mass
each day and spends an hour
at study before some lads
get to school. Needless to
say he is a lover of the out-
doors but does not sacrifice
duty for its pleasures.
QUINTIN I. FRITZ
His preference for mechanical
work probably helps to ac-
count for Quintin's love fo:
the typewriter. At no time
would he think of refusing to
do a job for you on that ma-
chine even if it were to cost
him all his leisure hours. We,
therefore called on him re-
peatedly to help us out on
typing copy for the year-
books, of course, never in
vain. Working on automo-
biles is his hobby when not
at school. We doubt not that
he will do his work here
LEO H. WELZ
Leo is a member of the Com-
mercial class preferring cler-
ical work to a course in Sci-

sure he is in the sky.

OUR CLASS CCLORS
Each year since C, H. S. was begun
Including the present year '41
Our class agreed upon blue and cream
To us they're more than what they seem.
The students met their colors to choose For loyalty and truth one stands
Among the many tints and hues. Which God and country of us demands.
Our country's colors, red, white, and blue ' Of soothing kindness cream reminds
Teach lessons dear to each citizen true. And hence to charity us it binds.
Our love to Mary and the Church of old Where charity and truth abound
We show by choice of blue, white and gold. There loyalty too, will be found.
They are a bond of love and peace
And bid contentions 'mong us cease.
We thus will find that peace of soul
Which leads us safely to our goal.
OUR CLASS MOTTO
"Even the blackest clouds reflect the rainbow."
OW true! In times of distress and dire need we can always find a faint glimmer of hope if we only look
for it. Often after a storm a glorious rainbow can be seen suspended in the sky-the colors blending to-
gether in a beautiful arch. When this phenomenon appears, the entire sky reflects the beauties of na-
ture, and even the dark clouds, which only a few moments before were sending down torrents of rain, disperse,
revealing the power of their Creator. Viewing all this, we cannot help but marvel at God's mercy and kind-
ness. The rainbow has been a symbol of salvation since Biblical times when Noah and the people deemed
worthy by God were saved after the deluge. f
As clouds of hatred and strife cover the world today, we must endeavor to see the hope which is inspired
by our Holy Father, Pope Pius the twelfth, in a recent message to the world. His article reads: "Noi consumma-
tion of the world is not yet come. Christ is with us all the days, even in the midst of wars and rumors of war.
We must not be troubled."
"God with that infinite and tender mercy which is over all His works will hear us--at the moment and
in the manner which He will have disposed--if we send up with one voice a trusting and fervent prayer,
enriched by the humiliation of penance."
When Adam and Eve were driven from Paradise they were told: "But after the blackness of night has
passed away, a glorious morning shall dawn upon you." The cruelest misfortunes sometimes turn out to be
blessings in disguise as in the case of loseph who was sold into slavery and cast into prison but later rose
to become the saviour of Egypt.
Theresa Neumann has recently said: "lf we pray, God will take care of everything.' Recalling these
sayings and those of many other great people, we cannot doubt that God is in His heaven above.
Iesus Christ, who is eternal Truth, solemnly declared: "I am the Resurrection and the Life, he that
believeth in Me although he be dead shall live forever, and everyone that liveth and believeth in Me, shall
not die forever."

ALTAR OF ENTHRONEMENT
STUDENTS' DEVOTION TO THE SACRED HEART
ACH year during the month of October, just before the feast of Christ the King, the entire High School
gathers in the assembly hall to take part in the consecration of our school to the Sacred Heart. The
ceremony is not elaborate, but all the pupils are anxious to gain the indulgences granted and the spe-
cial blessings given.
The senior boys, who built the beautiful altar, pictured above, are requested to bring something to
make the altar as elaborate as possible. The boys consider themselves highly honored to think that they were
chosen by the school to have the privilege of showing their devotion to the Sacred Heart by building a very
lust before the service takes place the candles and vigil lights are lighted and the entire student body
gather around the altar and unite in one grand chorus singing the praises of the Sacred Heart. The rest of
the ceremony which consists of an act of consecration, a prayer and a litany is conducted by Very Reverend
Father Timothy. At the conclusion Reverend Father delivers a short address to the students on the signifi-
cance and beauty of this devotion, then follows a hymn and the blessing after which all may disperse.
However, many linger about the altar and are loathe to take it down. To keep what they can of this,
those provided with cameras take pictures to be retained as a future remembrance of the happy occa-
sion. Some ol these pictures appear in this book, and we hope they may serve as constant reminders to
each student ever to be loyal subjects of Christ Our King. fQuintin Fritz,

O Catholic devotion is dearer to the students in our school than that of devotion to the
Sacred Heart. On the school day nearest the Feast of Christ the King a large statue
of the Sacred Heart is placed on an altar draped with festive garlands from woods
and classroom, church and flower shop. Candles and vigil lights deck the altar and
sparkle, anxious, as it were, to consume themselves for the glory of the Sacred Heart of
Iesus. Befitting ceremonies follow. After these, the students are addressed by the Reverend
Father in charge of the ceremony. In his talk this year Father Timothy stressed the im-
portance of living in union with the Sacred Heart during school life, also that devotion and
love should radiate from the school into the home of every Catholic.
Our Lord Himself promised to Saint Margaret Mary in favor of those devoted to His
Sacred Heart: "I will bless the houses in which the picture of My Sacred Heart shall be
exposed and honored" and "Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names
written in My Heart and they shall never be effaced therefrom."
The love of the Sacred Heart instilled into the pupils in their school days frequently
manifests itself in later years. Business men, women, and children endure cold, rain, and
storm, leaving their homes early in the morning every First Friday to go to church to re-
ceive their Heavenly Friend, and some of these have reached the end of their journey on a
First Friday shortly after receiving Holy Communion. It has also occurred many times that
persons have died after the completion of a novena of First Fridays, thus showing the fulfill-
ment of Christ's promise not to die without the Sacraments.
Many families now build their new homes with a special niche for the Sacred Heart
so that He may receive -fitting honor at all times.
We ardently wish that the students who go out from our school each year will per-
petuate this devotion and that the blessings of the Sacred Heart will always remain with
REACHING OUR GOAL
Let us strive to live and labor
If we Wish to save our soulg
For a crown is waiting for us
When we reach our final goal,
Ever work with zeal and courage
Keep eternal things in mind,
Be e'er pure in thought and action,
Never idly lag behind.
Should the Temptor vile assail us
While we work or while we play
Let him feel the scorn we bear him
Quickly turn the other way.
Then when all our days are over,
God calls Home the immortal soul,
We will heed His call rejoicing,
Knowing we have reached our goal.

ST. MARYS BOYS' CLASS HISTORY
WELVE years have elapsed as I again look back and see one of the most eventful
days of our lives, the graduates of '4l as little six year olds in the fall of 1928.
There is a procession moving up Church Street like some important caravan and
mingled among that crowd, are boys like Paul Sorg, Iames Iacob, Michael Herbst, Harold
Fritz, Bernard Simbeck, Maurice Hanes, myself and a great number of others who were
destined to compose the senior class of '4l.
The first day of school has comel An event prepared for since first we could talk. Our
hearts beating twice as fast as usual, we march on taking in everything possible, not miss-
ing a scene, wondering and waiting. Soon we are seated at our desks, assigned by a Sister,
after having finished a discussion with our elders who had brought us to school to be en-
rolled. New and eager faced children were listening to a voice, telling us something about
our wonderful selves and what we were made for. She also told us how to keep good order.
This we learned in time to be "Heaven's first law."
After this introduction to school life, we had twelve long years to travel up tedious roads
of knowledge. A few high lights along the road were our first Holy Communion and Confes-
sion, a contest in writing for which the winner received a harmonica of which the lucky
winner was Leander Rupprecht, one of this year's graduates. As this event took place at
Christmas time, each one of us was made happy by being permitted to choose a gift, which
was strung on the Christmas tree. During our fifth year, an entertainment, undoubtedly the
best ever put on the stage, at least in our opinion, was presented. ln this play Maurice
Hanes and Herbert Meier, both graduates of '41, the former of St. Marys Catholic High, the
latter of St. Vincents, took major parts and won great applause. Naturally we all felt elated
at the success of our play and these boys' achievements.
Not all, however, was pleasure along the course. A very sad event took place while we
were in the seventh grade. One of our classmates, Harold Brendel, to the consternation of
all, was struck by a car on the Million Dollar Highway, which resulted in his death. It was
a sad group of boys following his remains to the grave.
The next year found us in the eighth grade and gave us a chance to graduate from
grammar school. This made us feel quite important. Feeling big might have contributed to
a sense of daring in consequence of which I broke my collar bone during a football game
and another boy broke several ribs in a bicycle race.
During our first year in high school as freshmen we changed completely. We felt as
though we were again the smallest and least important, as indeed we were. This subdued
feeling was slightly overcome by our new work, the changing of classes, and our varied
schedules which thrilled us beyond our imagination.
The ninth, tenth and eleventh grades Were each more difficult than the preceding and
required most earnest effort on my part and I think I can say the same for the rest of the
class. We took part in assemblies, plays and other activities, had laboratory experiments,
home projects, etc. Educational movies were shown us quite frequently, which we appre-
ciated very much, and at times some popular movies were shown as a special treat. The
Sisters themselves operated the machines as several of them have a teacher's license to
The last year has been so filled with work of all kinds that we scarcely know where to
begin or end. Elections for officers and choosing of committees kept us after school hours.
Committee meetings and class discussions, choosing our class motto, our colors, flowers,
planning our year book, collecting and taking pictures, writing up articles, soliciting ads,
doing research work to be able to answer questons in our Catholic Action Club, etc., along
with our sports and athletics, especially basketball, left us no time to mope.
Yet we enjoyed it all. The day to say our farewells to it all is approaching. Iune 8 will
find us gathered together, for the last time as a class, at the Altar Railing to receive Holy
Iune I0 of this year, 1941, will mark the passing of this class of young men and women
numbering 67 students. Let us hope that all will live up to the ideals cur school tries to
instill into its students, and carry out in their life all that is conducive to make them loyal
citizens and true Catholics. '

SACRED HEART BOYS' CLASS HISTORY
OMB twelve years ago we, the class now graduating, were enrolled in school as begin-
ners in the "baby room". I do not think any of us can ever forget that bright September
morning when we were walking to school for the first time, and naturally were quite
excited. As we look back to that eventful day, little did any of us realize that we who were
seated there would be friends and classmates for the next twelve years, yet such was the
case and friendships begun then have endured till today.
One friend we lost along the way, and we miss him today. This was one of our best
pals, lames Pistner. God called him to a better life during ou: last year of grammar school.
During our final year in grammar school, we had the privilege of ringing the school bell at
the appointed hours. This gave us a feeling of importance and you may be sure we were
not remiss in our task. When Iune came, we were the happy recipients of graduation certi-
ficates, presented to each successful student by Rev. Father Henry, O.S.B. This entitled us
to enter High School the following September. During the summer, while enjoying our vaca-
tion, we were very much grieved to find that death called another of our classmates, Frank
McMackin, he having met with a hunting accident.
The following September, our class, minus two pals, was enrolled in the Catholic High
School. High school students at last! Of course we felt elated. Everything now was different,
for every class a different teacher, a different class room and the ringing of the bell every
forty-five minutes. All this was rather confusing at first, but we soon learned. Here we also
made new friends, played new games, and were eligible to try out for the varsity basketball
team. This we did with varying success, and today finds two of us on the varsity team.
Our sophomore year in high school found many of us taking Biology, a study of which
we had never even heard the name. ln this science we studied animals and flowers, dis-
sected them, and studied their interior structure, and organs. I particularly remember one
incident when the shell was cut from the turtle, after putting this under ether, so that we
could watch the action of the heart. This of course was quite fascinating to us youngsters.
As juniors we took up Chemistry and found the laboratory experiments very interesting.
Many of these experiments left us baffled and wondering. The day may come when one or
the other of us will study deeper into its mysteries. A thing of great importance to us was
the privilege of selecting and Wearing our class rings.
At last we were seniorsl Our final year in high schooll We had been longing for this
day nearly all our lives and now, having reached this goal we felt rather superior and im-
portant. We lost no time in letting others know how advanced we were. As freshmen, we
had been initiated by the seniors, and now as seniors were prompt in initiating the fresh-
Not all was nonsense, however, in time, besides maintaining our marks in studies, we
joined the Glee Club, Orchestra, Basketball team, and organized a Student Council, perhaps
the first of its kind in the Catholic High School. This council is quite helpful in maintaining
law and order in the school building and on the grounds. lf a student persists in violating
the regulations, he is given a detention card by one of the council and is told to appear
before this body at its next meeting. Here the case is heard and possibly an additional pen-
alty given. Ioint meetings are held every first Friday when cases are heard, new by-laws
made or old ones amended.
We feel proud of our Student Council and of its achievements during the past year. We
hope it will long continue successfully for the benefit of both the members of the council as
well as for the younger students who sometimes need a big brother's or sister's helping or
SENIOR GIRLS' CLASS HISTORY
HROUGHOUT the eight years ot grade work our aim was to be promoted from year to
year so that we would finally reach high school. Our enthusiasm was stimulated by the
frequent information given us by our older brothers and sisters who had already reached
that enviable place. It seemed like a dream of the dim, distant future, but before we could
realize that the eight years had elapsed the opening day of high school arrived. The year
1937 found us glorying in the triumph of our successful admission into ninth grade.
We were enthused by the novelty of the departmental work in the high school since it
afforded us a variety of classrooms and we had a different teacher each period. That year
we added many Sacred -Heart and Consolidated School pupils to our number. Thus our
spare moments were employed in making acquaintances which have lasted throughout the
high school years. As freshmen we occasioned many a laugh to the experienced high school
students by our inability to find the proper classrooms. V
In the tenth grade we were happily reunited with the friends from whom we had been
previously separated on account of the lack of seating facility. During the first semester we

were obliged to select our individual courses. Now that we were no longer "green" fresh-
men it was our duty to participate in the general assemblies. During the course of the year
our class honored the seniors by holding several festivities for their enjoyment.
The following year our studies presented more difficult problems to solve and although
at times we were inclined to become discouraged, we enjoyed our work exceedingly and
began to regret that we had only one more year ahead of us. That November we selected
our class rings, the enviable privilege of students who have creditably reached their third
year in high school.
Oh, what pleasure we experienced as we were promoted to the twelfth gradel Despite
the fact that our class had lost several members during high school, we still held the record
for being the largest class in Central's history.
In the fall our Glee Club was organized and progressed under the able supervision of
Mr. Paul Lang. During Book Week the seniors were busily engaged in making suitable
posters for display in the Assembly Room. This project was followed by an interesting play-
let given by several senior boys and girls. The playlet depicted the life of Noah Webster,
the compiler of our first dictionary.
Eager to obtain our class hats and pennants at an early date we hurriedly selected our
class colors: royal blue and cream. There was, of course, the usual controversy but a final
vote settled the matter.
We prepared for Christmas by staging a picturesque operetta, "The Madonna's Choice",
The Chorus was composed of seventy-two senior and freshman girls, who were busily en-
gaged for several weeks in learning the eight musical numbers listed in the operetta. Other
members in the cast were: the Blessed Virgin Mary, Esther Gregoryg Saint Ioseph, Dorothy
Hassenetterg Shadow, Theresa Schneider, Beauty, Alice Brennenp Happiness, Rita Hacherl,
Wealth, Helen Kreckle, first angel, Norma Iean Meyerg second angel, Alice Brennenp chorus
of angels, Erma Arnold, Alice Baumer, Corinne Detsch, Letitia Grotzinger, Bernice Herzing,
Elsie Schauer, Dolores Schneider, Helen Welz. The program proved to be very entertaining
and helped greatly to augment the Christmas spirit which was so welcome to all of the stu-
In january Central organized its first Student Council, its principal work being to assist
in the enforcement of rules in the corridors and Assembly Halls.
In the senior year, as well as throughout the other years of high school, we enjoyed
excellent motion pictures, including: Oliver Twist, Black Beauty, Bernadette of Lourdes, The
Healer, Don Bosco, Skippy, The Last of the Mohicans, The Mighty Treve, Scrooge, and Tim-
othy's Quest. Through the courtesy of the Metropolitan Insurance Company, the Sportsman
Association, and the Pennsylvania Motor Police we were given health, wild game, and
safety pictures, respectively.
Our annual, the Memo, demanded its share of attention and we were called upon daily
to contribute to its contents: advertisements, pictures, and written matter. The completion of
this project was soon followed by that joyful Iune day when we closed the chapter of school
life and proudly bade adieu to our Alma Mater which had so carefully guided our steps
through the channels of education until we were fit to step out into the World at large and
take our places therein.

The hours advance bringing noonday heat,
Few strollers now are found on the street.
They seek relief from the scorching sun,
Content to rest the cool shades among.

Forgetting the while ec1rth's wearisome cares.

With thanks to our Father who dwells on high.
When sunset's glow yields to everting's shades
And whispering breezes 'mong' branches above
Are praising God's goodness and kindness and love

BOYS' CLASS PROPHECY
T was the latter part of the year l955 and after a most successful journey
through the Amazon Valley, that I, being much in need of a vacation, de-
cided upon returning to the good old U. S. A. I traveled by boat from the
Brazilian coast to Florida where I took a plane for the remainder of my trip.
During the flight aloft we ran into a bad storm but were safely carried through
by the skillful piloting of Laverne Schatz and Clarence Detsch, two school
chums of mine. They spoke of several new cities that sprung up near the
enormous dam in Washington State. In one of these I decided to begin my
Having procured a place to lodge during my visit, I set out to see the
sights of the city. Traveling but a short distance I came upon a series of
buildings both modern and unique in structure and design. Stopping at one
of these yet under construction I found "Bert" Clark, who, as an architect, had
achieved for himself a noteworthy reputation and ranked among the world's
greatest. "Bert" and I went out to lunch to talk over old times.
On the way to our hotel I stopped at the "Nation-Wide News-stand" to
purchase a daily paper and discovered its publisher to be Paul Trgovac. He
and his paper were doing much in the drive for clean literature. All salacious
news dispensaries were being driven out of existence largely through his ef-
forts. Glancing over the paper I saw in large black head lines, "New lustice
Appointed." This was our erstwhile schoolmate, Robert S. I. Barsa, who, in
high school days had hopes of attaining just such a position. I later looked
him up and congratulated him on realizing his ambitions. From him I learned
more about the splendid work done by Trgovac and indirectly that in the
latter's efforts to clean up the press Iudge Barsa proved of invaluable assist-
Another article in the N. W. N. told of the success of a very rare cerebral
operation performed by Dr. Iames lacob. Doctor Iacob was Chief of Staff
and head of the surgical department in the city hospital. ln another article
were discussed the possibilities of the Red Sox winning the pennant. The
Red Sox, by the ceaseless efforts of Louis Rollick, had achieved the honor of
top ranking base ball team of 1954.
You may be sure I lost no time in looking up these old pals of mine. While
pursuing my way with this object in view I came upon a sign which read
"Franks Spaghetti and Meat Balls." I entered this restaurant and to my sur-
prise recognized Frank Carino, the manager. He was the owner of some
twenty such establishments in neighboring towns and cities. Being old class-
mates, rarely met, Frankie made me stay with him for dinner. No sooner were
we seated at table when three more familiar figures appeared upon the
scene. These were Michael Herbst, Vice-president of the A. and P. Meat and
Grocery Association, Robert McIntyre and Maurice Hanes, both Mechanical
Engineers for a famous automobile manufacturing corporation. Having five
of our Class of '41 together we made quite a "party" of it and talked over the
good fortunes and the hard knocks we had had since leaving school. None,
however, had encountered insurmountable odds, and none had lost any of
the optimism which characterized us at school.
In the evening we decided to take in a Movie. On entering the theater
the pleasant, smiling manager, Bernard Simbeck, greeted us. Happy to meet
W x X K r xxt 'I Wifi I I I

him, yet not surprised at his occupation-for even at school his interests lay
there-we, nevertheless, wanted to know all about his work. We soon
learned that he was an indefatigable promoter of clean movies, and worked
hand in hand with Trgovac and Barsa.
My surprises did not end here. In the news of the day which preceded
the feature was a speech by Quintin Fritz, now a high ranking official in the
Post Office Department. This was followed by a short sketch about the suc-
cesses of the Washington College quintet now coached by the captain of our
high school team, Paul "Doc" Sorg. This talk was delivered by the learned
sports' commentator, Richard A. Fritz, another of our friends and classmates.
Later in the evening, after returning to my hotel I turned on the radio and
listened in to a good orchestra, famous, as the announcer said, for its old-
fashioned melodies and conducted by the eminent musician, Richard Francis.
l felt sorry that I could not talk to Francis but I had to be satisfied for the
present to know his whereabouts.
Next morning I directed my steps to church to hear an early Mass. On the
way l met Francis Bleggi and Patrick Friedl. The former, I leamed, was owner
of a large Slaughter house, the latter head of the Washington Game Commis-
sion. After services our group was joined by Leo Welz, Secretary of the Treas-
ury of the U. S. A. The four of us then sauntered to the parish house to call
on Vincent Bebble, now a devoted member of the Clergy and Pastor of this
fine church. We spent some happy moments with Reverend Father, and com-
mended him on the fine cooperation he was receiving in his work by Press
and Movies. From him I learned of still another of his valuable helpers, who
was choir master and head of a recreation center for young people where
they could enjoy clean and healthy sport.
Wishing to get in touch with another companion of mine who lived out-
side the city l had to depart before seeing Leander. Being in a hurry I told
the driver to speed up his car. Hardly had he done so when was heard the
ominous sound of a police siren behind us. Stopped thus, and forced to face
our pursuer we looked into the stern face of Sergeant Harold Fritz of the State
Motor Police. He was not too hard on us and so we were on our way again
presently and made the trip in record time. I soon found my friend, joseph
Hillebrand who was to accompany me on my return trip to South America.
This time into the Peruvian jungles in search of two lost explorers. He was
busy arranging some supplies and photographic implements which we needed
on our expedition. With him was William Wingenbach from whose well
equipped modern studio he had selected his articles. William, by the way,
had become quite an artist both with camera and brush.
Here my vacation ended and the morrow found me on my journey south,
happy that l had been able to contact directly or indirectly all of my former
classmates. ln consequence my Memo of the Class of 1941 was richer by a few
notes as soon as I found some leisure moments to spend in my library.

GIRLS' CLASS PROPHECY
AST night, the tenth of Iune, l96l, as I sat before the open fire in my room,
staring into the red-gold flames, I saw faces which brought back remin-
iscences of my school days. Iust twenty years had elapsed since that
eventful day when we were accepted as adult members of the world. We
had graduated from that great school, Central High. The flames in the fire-
place and my mental eye made up a picture of the achievements of my
In order to make memories easier for me, the fire divided into four
tongues, representing: science, art, business, and miscellaneous. The first
flame spoke thus: "Many friends have I, for your class seemed to favor my
subjects. Sophia Fritz and Mary Lenze followed my guiding hand as arche-
ologists as far as Peru. lane Gregory lost herself in the folds of surgery in
Philadelphia. Angela Gerg and Helene Schaut are proud of their own clinic
in Los Angeles. Bertha Herzing, always intent upon nursing, and her friend,
Dorothy Lion, an anesthetist, are located in Baltimore. Physicists bow low to
a great leader, Edna Grotzinger, who has several large laboratories under
her control in New York City. Not to be surpassed is Dorothy Hassenetter, a
chemistry student of bygone days, and now a teacher in the Univer-
sity of Chicago. This city also harbors another classmate, Ruth Schlimm,
a famous geologist. St. Marys, of course, has made her charms
shine forth in the eyes of a few girls who have settled in their home town.
Alberta Hoffman and Zita Leithner have pursued their ambition to be nurses
and Helen Kreckle is reaping the reward of her strenuous efforts to succeed in
dental work. Are you bored with me? I will bring my visit to a close and
commend you to my successful and beautiful sister-Art. Au Revoir."
With a blinding flash Science departed and Art arrived with these words,
"Within my castle walls, I harbor quite a few Centralites with the artful touch.
Oil paintings, grand to the eye and stimulating to the soul, are wrought by
such pupils of fame as Agnes Auman and Alice Dippold. Mary lane Breindel
is using her poetic genius to great advantage. The camera performs mag-
ically in the hands of lean Kuntz, and Esther Gregory's voice charms the aris-
tocrats and peasants of three continents. Madison Square Garden is packed
to capacity by admirers of Betty Donivan and Rita Hacherl, skating with
poise as twins. My scholars are few in number but great in name for they
provide entertainment and only gifted personages can entertain with charm
and grace. Business, another brother of mine, wishes to demonstrate his
prowess as a Centralite employer. Farewell!"
Indeed, Business did just that very act by showing me small sketches of
successful students. "Helen Meisel, as president of the Tulsa National Bank,
makes her home in Oklahoma. Agnes Kronenwetter is an employee of the
former, laboring as her special secretary. They are inseparable in business
as well as in recreation. Gertrude Lodes discovered a gold mine and is kept
busy in Argentina. Publishing caught the eye of our fair Mary Martha Bauer
and her private offices occupy a block in Canton, Ohio. Designers of past
and present fame unanimously give Dorothea Haberberger the title, 'Genius
of Designers' Adela Weinzierl and Pauline Herzing are earning their for-
tunes by selling a mud-pack to beautify the women of four countries. Stenog-
raphy maintained its grasp on Verna Buchheit, Bertha Hillebrand, Ruth Geeck,
1 fe I , 1 ' X

and Iosephine Leithner. My sketches are completed and I must bid adieu,"
Miscellaneous section curtsied sedately, seated itself, and poured forth
its tale. "My members possess the finest qualities as you will clearly see.
Rita Cheatle has studied Latin until she has become a teaching Caesar. She
is fondly called 'Little Caesarf Agnes Fischer is renowned as the best
hostess in the largest hotel in Buffalo. Martha Schneider is a child-nurse and
is in demand by the country's wealthiest families. Georgia Smith astounds
tens of thousands by means of her magical tricks. Red Cross work has lured
Edna Dippold and she has consented to drive an ambulance of mercy in war-
.torn nations. Adeline Minnick's charm makes her a delightful kindergarten
teacher and all children bestow their love upon her. Last, but not least, the
religious life has for its devotees: Florence Leithner, now Superior at the new
mother-house in Lucinda, Alice Kronenwetter and Grace Friedl, missionary
workers in far-off Tibet. Now, your class of 1941 is complete and forty-one
girls have been accounted for in this retrospection of happier school days.
Since I am the last to leave you, I wish you God's choicest blessings. Good-
bye, to you and to Central Highl"
With these parting words my mind's eye again opened and as I gazed
about the spacious room of my 520,000 home I possessed a longing to speak
to my former chums. Being a lab technician was my ambition and I had
fared well ,in this profession. Then I reverently prayed that God would grant
my co-graduates as much joy and as many blessings as He had showered
upon me. Mentally, I again closed the "Book of Friendships".
In the cradle she has placed him,
For her work must yet be done:
But a smile her face oft brightens
When she glances at her son.
Into boyhood's years he passes
With each setting of the sun,
While her mother's love increases
For her one and only son.
The friend most patient, loyal
The kindest that I know,
The one that e'er assists me
And guides me here below.
But one day a message greets her,
' Then her sorrows have begun,
For dread war has cruelly summoned
Her life's joy, her only son.
Anxious days are those that follow
'Til she hears the war is won,
And she knows her prayer is answered
Once again to see her son.
The one who always pardons
No matter what I've done-
My own, my dearest mother
Alone can be that one.

HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY
N I-ll I can't compose," said Iohn Griffin disgustedly. "What's wrong,
son?" asked his mother when she heard his words and saw the dis-
heartened look upon his face.
"Ohl" replied lohn, "Sister wants everyone to enter the local composition
contest, conducted by the Knights of Saint George. The prize is twenty-five
dollars in cash. I can't write a composition as good as that, and besides it's
just a waste of time because I won't win anyway."
"You can always try," said his mother. "I'm sure you would have as
good a chance at winning as Tom Henderson."
Tom Henderson was a brilliant student who led his class in English and
had recently won the American Legion medal for his superior essay. Iohn
greatly feared this excellent opponent.
His mother upon retiring for the night cautioned Iohn not to stay up too
late. Iohn then set to work with a will to write the essay in compliance with
his kind mother's wishes.
The next morning lohn met Tom Henderson on the way to school with
whom he exchanged compositions. "Geel Tom's is very good," thought Iohn
as he read, however, Tom spoke not a word when he returned Iohn's essay.
Iohn was tempted to keep Tom's paper and submit it as his own, but just
as he entered the classroom the teacher requested all work to be handed in.
Thus Iohn had to submit his own composition instead.
On Friday, the day on which the winner was to be announced, the teacher
made this surprising declaration: "The Knights of Saint George have at last
reached a decision. The winner is Iohn Griffin."
As lohn passed hesitatingly up the aisle amid the cheers of his compan-
ions he met Torn who said, "My composition was written by my brother at
college and I was sure I would win, but I congratulate you, Iohn, for you truly
deserve the award."
That night as Iohn slipped into the little corner church where he made a
daily visit he was filled with a serene peace and joy for he could plainly hear
a voice in the tabernacle saying, "Honesty is the best policy."
As I sit beside the window When I note the tiny flower
Gazing up into the sky, With its petals all so gay,
I behold in radiant splendor And its hues which are so varied
Clouds of silver passing by. As I see them day by ddy,
When I view the busy street They all speak to me of Someone,
Covered o'er by falling snow, And His beauty they proclaim
When I see the rivers wide Louder than the tongues of mortals
Or listen to the winds that blow, They enchant His sacred name.

THE PRODUCTION OF OUR YEARBOOK
ACH year, the Seniors of the Catholic High School publish an annual. All
put in their best efforts to improve upon those of previous years. But be-
fore they can publish their Memo, it is necessary to raise funds. This is
done by the members of the graduating class soliciting advertisements and
donations, and by conducting sales. ln raising the money, a spirit of com-
petition is awakened among the students, and in their efforts to obtain adver-
tisements, each one learns how to use a little business tact and realizes he
must cultivate a sense of approach when contacting business men and others
if he wishes to win them to his cause.
Since the publication of the yearbook is the Seniors' responsibility, and
its entire production depends upon them, they become interested in art, liter-
ature, and different categories of thought that might increase the value of
their production in appearance and content.
True, it is never what we would like it to be. But though it may be lack-
ing in art and design, as well as in literary value, all try to make sure that
it lacks nothing in originality and effort.
The editorials bring home a few truths as the student sees them, our
camera club produces pictures, perhaps not the best in the art, but they show
forth earnest effort and their love of nature's beauties, our artists, though lack-
ing the elegance and perspective of a Raphael or a Rembrandt, produce draw-
ings which show originality and portray unmistakably the thought they wish
to convey, the joke section can boast of nothing more than ordinary home-
spun humor, our poems find no place in the shadows of a Longfellow, but they
try to express thought and emotions entirely ours, our character sketches tell
simply what we have learned to know of each other in our many years of
school life together.
In the compilation we tried to use care and judgment in the arrangement
of matter selected, of colors and of color design. In short, every detail which
enters into the publication of a book that aims to be as interesting and artistic
as possible within the limits of the financial contributions of our advertisers
and friends had to be considered. Many were the propositions upon which
the class had to deliberate before arriving at decisions satisfactory to those
concerned. That all this is of value to the student I need not repeat.
It certainly fosters class spirit, heightens interest in concerted effort which
is followed by the joy of achievement when the finished product is in our
hands, and by the satisfaction of effort appreciated by those who take time
to examine and peruse our book.
The Church with its beautiful altar There Iesus awaits our coming
And paintings of Christ and His saints, Enshrined in a luna of gold
Should prompt us in good not to falter Surrounded by heavenly Spirits
Nor weary the world with complaints. Awaiting the sheep of His fold.

THOUGHTS OF A VETERAN
T was on a cold November day in 1918, as I remember it, and I was just
getting ready to reload my gun when a silence fell over the entire region
about me. I waited a moment for the enemies' fire but nothing happened.
What was the matter? Had I been deafened by the constant fire of the past
two years? I waited another moment, then became very tense with this
thought: "A calm usually precedes a storm." That was it, the enemy was
getting ready for an attack, and according to the silence it must be their last
and greatest encounter. In the past months they had been losing heavily and
now they would use all their efforts to make this last attack successful.
I watched intently for nearly a half hour, during which I commanded my
men to make ready for an invasion.
The quiet, which, at first, seemed to fall like a hammer on my ears, began
to soothe me. How wonderful it all was! Then I became alert once more,
for out there on "No Man's Land" I caught a slight movement of the brush.
With a cry of "Halt, who goes there?" I raised my gun and just as I was press-
ing the trigger I saw something. I looked again. Yes, it was still there. The
noon sun broke through the gray sky to cast a feeble light on the object, mak-
ing its white feathers still whiter. There on the ground walking around non-
chalantly was a dove-the sign of peace, seemingly bringing to us the word
that once more the world was at peace. I whistled and called to it. It cocked
its head and looked at me as if to say, "You've been shooting at me and now
you act as though you really want me," and I did just that, I wanted to touch
the bird that meant so much to all, the bird symbolizing peace. That same
day we received word the war was over and We could soon return home.
That was almost twenty-five years ago, and now, what is happening?
Guns again are spitting fire and men fall, never to rise. I wonder who shall
come now to bring peace. When will someone see a dove bringing the mes-
sage of peace to the world? Will it be soon? O Lord, grant it may be, send
us once again peace and concord among menl
SEEKING A I OB
OMMENCEMENT exercises were over at last and the pupils of St. Ioseph's
High bade each other farewell before departing for their respective
homes. Clair Collins sighed Wearily as he pulled himself away from his
classmates. His was a sorry plight, tomorrow he was to begin seeking a job,
for his mother needed his support.
The next morning Clair scanned the "'Help Wanted Ads" in the "Evening
Sun" several of which appealed to him. He immediately busied himself to
make inquiries. First, he went to a retail store but this position had already
been filled. Then he stopped at a factory to offer his services as a mechanic,
but, he again met with disappointment as only experienced men were wanted.
Clair slowly retraced his steps.
"Where should he go next?" "What should he do?" Hastily scanning
the paper again, his eyes rested on an "Ad', that had escaped his notice.
"lust the thing," he cried. And then, while saying the prayer "Holy Mary,

MY MOTHER Q
Mother of God, aid me in seeking this position, mother needs my assistance,
please answer the petition of a faithful son", he walked to the office of an air-
plane factory. The waiting room was occupied by six others who were also
seeking a position. Application blanks were given to each, which after being
painstakingly filled were given to the stenographer for approval.
"Mr. Scott wishes to speak to each of you, personally", she said. "Will
you please take your blanks as you pass into his office?"
During the time of the interviews, Clair sat quietly slipping the beads of
his rosary through his fingers as he breathed prayer after prayer to the
Mother of God.
Finally, after what seemed ages, he alone remained in the room. With
hesitating steps, he picked his blank from the table and walked into the chief
"Good morning, Sir", greeted Mr. Scott with a smile. "Will you please
tell me, just why you are seeking a position?" Clair clearly stated his reason
and breathlessly awaited the decision.
Mr. Scott kindly extended his hand. "Shake, son", he replied, 'Hand to-
morrow morning at seven report to Mr. Harris in the assembling plant."
"Thank you, Sir", cried Clair, grasping the hand that was placed in his.
"l shall never forget this favor."
Clair's first act upon leaving the office was to offer a prayer of thanks-
giving to his Heavenly Mother for interceding for him. As soon as he reached
home, he acquainted his mother with his success. "And, Mom", he said with
tear-dimmed eyes, "if ever I am in need of another job, I shall remember first
to ask the aid of Our Lady of Perpetual Help."
When but a tiny helples child,
None knew me better than mother mild.
When tears would come each little while,
'Twas she brought back the happy smile
When school years came with books to learn,
In trouble too, to her We'd turn
And when we caused her dear heart pain,
Her love forgave our faults again.
When forced to speak with voice severe,
'Twas followed by a smile sincere.
When seeking her in time of need,
She'd help with Word and kindly deed.
When graduation came in turn,
The world's hard lessons ours to learn.
Again 'twas she that smoothed the Way,
And soothed till dawned a brighter day
She helped to choose my state of life,
And counseled me in choice of wife.
She prayed as only mothers pray,
That God be with us on our Way.
When broke at last each earthly bond,
Her spirit fled to realms beyond.
Oh! how we missed that mother's love,
And asked her blessing from above.
lo- -Robert Mclntyre.
Europe is in a sorry state, Cruel oppressions played their game,
None can now decide her fate Bathed in blood poor Finland's fame
All that's good seems cast aside Poles and Czechs found endless Woe
By Godless laws men must abide.
Trying to fight the relentless foe.
England now is under fire, '
Foes to crush, her great desire
But will victory bring us peace
And make the vengeful passions cease?

SAINT GREGORY THE GREAT AS A WRITER
HE Writings of popes abound in the field of learning. lt is incredible how
much was Written by the monk-Pope,Saint Gregoryyvvho is justly surnamed
the Great because of his illuslrious actions and extraordinary virtues. His
foundation in Writing was established in his youth through his diligent study
of grammar, rhetoric, and philosophy. Later on he applied himself to civil
law and the canons of the church in which he Was perfectly skilled.
After he received the monastic habit in 575, being then thirty-five years
old, he devoted his time to the study of sacred writings. At the request of
Saint Leander, bishop of Seville, he Wrote the thirty-five books of Morals upon
lob, so inspiring as to unify the most excellent principles of morality. This
was the source from whch Saint Thomas and other masters of holy sciences
have drawn their maxirns. ln addition to his "Comments on Morals", we have
his interpretation of Ezekiel in twenty-two homilies and his forty homilies on
the gospels. A very interesting compilation may be found in his letters which
are published in fourteen books. His next great literary achievement was his
reply to a reproof for refusing to be placed in the pontificate, in which he
sets forth the dangers, duties, and obligations of that charge. This golden
booklet, the "Pastoral Rule" was given to every bishop at his consecration.
lt may even be said, that after the Bible, no Work exercised so great an influ-
ence for a thousand years as this little manual of clerical duties and ideals.
"No pope has ever exercised so much influence by his Writings, on which
the Middle Ages were largely formed as far as practical ethics and the disci-
pline of life were concerned. They were in every monastery, and Were
thumbed over by every cleric."
In all of his works we find his style of Writing plain and familiar, with no
pomp of Words, making them Widely acclaimed. They are truly an inspira-
tion, and to verify this assertion We call to mind the testification of Saint Greg-
ory's most inimate friend, who in a vision saw the Holy Ghost in the form of a
dove appear on Saint Gregory's head, whispering in his ear.
His Writings formed the heads and hearts of the best men in Church and
state during the entire Middle Ages and like a subtle indestructible aroma are
even yet operative in Christian society.
THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER'S GRAVE
Have you ever heard of the unknown grave In memory of those noble men
Beneath an Arlington mound Who helped their nation free,
To honor some soldier, so kind and brave, Quite near the mound on constant beat
Whose name is not to be found? A guard you daily see.
This tomb was built some years ago And every day of every year
When our country had won the wary As dusk enshrouds the land
And mothers longed for their soldier sons You hear a bugle, loud and clear,
Who were to return no more. Resound from the guardsman's stand.

ST. MARYS ON THE MAP
T. MARYS is a little town of which each of its inhabitants may be justly
proud and thankful to God for the opportunities it affords. When other
places were reduced almost to starvation for want of work, St. Marys kept
her factories and workshops open. Very few lost their jobs. We have here
the Carbon plants employing thousands of workers, among these are machin-
ists, mechanics, carpenters, electricians, dyemakers and bookkeepers. Those
desiring aeronautics have a club.
If we wish to build a home we have building contractors and a force of
good masons and carpenters. There are landscape contractors who will adorn
our homes with lawns and shrubbery.
Nearly every street can boast of one or several stores in which all can
obtain what may be needed in groceries, fruit, meats or dry goods at a fair
Professions too are well represented. Attorneys, lawyers, bankers, dentists,
oculists, opticians and photographers all find employment here. Shoemakers
and tailors, milliners and dressmakers too are busy at their work.
Hotels and tourists' homes take care of travelers and visitors. Schools
and churches with efficient teachers and zealous pastors take care of our edu-
cation and spiritual needs.
Recreation centers and parish halls provide healthful amusement for
Catholics and Protestants alike. A well equipped library furnishes books for
the literarily inclined.
St. Marys has always been a music loving town and is proud of its two
bands and several orchestras which provide some of the best concerts to en-
tertain the music loving populace. Our Scout Troops for boys and girls rank
among the best in the state under their able leaders.
Our public parks for children, ball grounds and halls for basketball are
open to all who care to engage in athletics or a sport of that nature.
Wild life and fish abound in our forests and streams, well cared for by
men fitted for the work. It affords hunters and anglers a few days of keen
enjoyment several weeks each year.
I wonder how many towns this size can boast of like advantages.
As the sun sinks down 'neath the western sky,
And we no more can admire its beauty,
We stop to think of the day gone by
And ask ourselves have we done our duty.
We regret our errors, forgive each wrong
And kneel in thanksgiving to God for his graces.
We then peacefully rest while the night passes on,
For we know that wrongs we regret, He effaces.

EACE ON EARTH TO MEN OF GOOD WILL! How often you and I have
heard this quotation from Holy Scripture! Why is there so little peace
today? Why are nations warring against each other? Why? Because
there is no good will. Greed, hatred, revenge fill the hearts of men.
Again and again has the Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, urged leaders of na-
tions to come together and negotiate a just peace-so far in vain.
What a happy life this would be if we could always live in peace and
harmony with our fellow-men! If every one would strive to keep peace with
God and man there could be no unjust warfare and bloodshed, for armies
are made up of individuals and if these kept peace among themselves war
would be impossible. Nations would not destroy each other but, as friendly
neighbors, would come to one another's assistance in time of need.
Would that leaders of the warring countries listened to the voice of our
Holy Father and would make peace based upon the points outlined by him
in his ceaseless efforts to put a stop to the carnage that can end only in the
destruction of one another!
Let us at least do our part and storm Heaven with prayers for peace, as
he bids us do, that the King of Peace may soften the hearts of men and that
they extend to each other the hand of friendship. Our class motto: "Even the
blackest clouds reflect the rainbow" bids us raise our eyes to Him and trust
that in answer to worldwide prayer the sun of peace will again shine upon
Our graduating class of '41 must not be remiss in its resolve that always
they will be found among those striving to restore harmony between enemies.
Hence, let us now rally around our common Father and unite our voices with
his that God in His mercy send us a just peace.
Will power-the road to success. Yet few people can say that they have
enough determination to face anything that may confront them. A man who
has a firm determination to face the world after it has dealt him a hard blow
will, no doubt, be a success in life.
Many of our great business men of today at times felt diffident and met
with ridicule, but they struggled onward doing what they thought was right,
ignoring the taunts of the people, thus eventually making a success of them-
selves. Had these men been weak-willed, their efforts would have resulted
We, as young people, should be willing to start at the bottom and work to
the top, exercise patience, and strengthen our will power in order to succeed
in what we attempt.

OBIECTIONABLE MOTION PICTURES
EW and Gentile, Catholic and non-Catholic, clergy and laity, educators and
civic leaders, all unite in condemning many of the motion pictures pro-
duced today. All these assort that degrading films are doing much to undo
the training of home, school, and church.
Catholics have spent large sums of money in erecting modernly equipped
buildings, installing the best equipment, and providing excellent Catholic
teachers to give children an education which will make them ideal citizens,
loyal to God and country.
However, all efforts are useless if childen are allowed to see religion
undervalued, crime exalted, morality ridiculed and lawlessness defended.
The wave of crime which deluges the nation at present is largely due to the
Godless education of our public schools and to the visual degradation of our
ln the United States the bishops have issued pastorals denouncing the
objectionable movies of the present day. They command their pastors to
preach on the subject, and also to urge their people to take the pledge of
the Legion of Decency. Many good Catholics willingly comply with the wishes
of their bishops and pastors, considering this a grave obligation.
In order to inform the people as to which movies are approved or objec-
tionable, lists are published in many of the Catholic papers giving the desired
information. The judgment of the secular press in this matter is not always
reliable. Often motion pictures are advertised and praised although they
are highly objectionable from a moral and an educational point of view.
SHOES. AN INDEX TO PERSONALITY
S we travel through life, we meet many persons some of whom become
our constant companions, others we never see again. Nevertheless, our
memories retain the impression made upon us by the persons we meet
from day to day. We notice the details of their apparel, especially their
If we see a young man whose shoes are polished, shoe laces tied, and
heels in good condition, we are quite convinced that he is well-bred, holds a
position of trust, and is respected by his associates.
lf, however, We come in contact with a person whose shoes are covered
with dust, the shoe laces full of knots, the heels crooked-everything about his
shoes points to the fact that that man is untidy, slovenly, does his work in a
slipshod manner, and that he is not sought after by employers.
We occasionally see a wanderer carelessly attired, thus suggesting to all
whom he chances to meet that life holds no lofty purposes for him.
If we are so ready to determine the character of others, let us remember
that they, too, pass judgment upon us, and that "Shoes are an index to per-

NOTHING VENTURED, NOTHING WON
WEEK before Lent the Seniors busily discussed plans for a cake sale.
In the corridors could be heard whispers of the mysterious discussion
behind the closed doors of the girls' classroom. For a Week the Sen-
iors walked seriously about, contemplating something that denoted important
business. Then it happened! Posters appeared on the bulletin boards, giv-
ing the necessary details of the coming sale. Groups of students read and
reread the notices.
Every evening the Seniors assembled until they had completed their
plans. Nothing must go wrong, the sale must prove a success. Officers of
the committee obtained an approximate number of cakes needed-an im-
portant factor-as they wished to serve everyone.
Then, finally, the evening of actual preparation arrived. Each Senior girl
anxiously hastened home to the kitchen to test her skill at baking and hap-
pily she proceeded to the classroom next morning.
What a surprise when the various cakes were displayed for the salel
Nothing so artistic or enticing had ever met the eyes of the students. Cakes
With pink, White, green, chocolate, and blue icing made into artistic designs
brought favorable comments from everyone. Some of the students even put
the initials of our school and the current year on the tops of the cakes.
At the time set for the sale, students from the various classes could be
seen hurrying to the assembly hall where palatable purchases could be made.
Serious, but happy, the Committee observed well-satisfied customers going
to and fro,
With each purchase a free ticket was given to afford the holder the
opportunity of winning an attractive cake that had been baked by an inter-
Before classes were resumed for the afternoon session the high school pu-
pils assembled in the recreation hall eager to see who would hold the win-
ning number. Laughter arose When it was discovered, after the announce-
ment had been made, that no one in the audience could claim the coveted
prize. Suspense reigned until the missing number was located. It hap-
pened to be owned by a little Seventh Grade girl.
The Committee members were agreeably surprised that evening when
they learned from the Chairman's report the amount actually netted. A new
joy was theirs. They had achieved what they had little dared to expect.
APPINESS is sometimes defined as being contented with what We have.
I believe that this is a very good definition but happiness means some-
thing else. lt means peace of mind. For how can We be contented
with the everyday happenings, the trials and troubles of life, the little ups
and downs that annoy us, if we do not have the grace obtained through a
good and clean conscience? True happiness then is, "Peace of soul and the
courage and good will to take things as they come and not grumble and com-
plain about them."

IF WE ONLY HAD PEACE
OU may say, "We have peace." Yes to a certain extent we do have peace
in America, but, how long will it last? If only we could feel assured that
there is no danger of War this year or in future years, what a country this
At present we are, as it were, on the fence, trying more or less to make
up our minds whether to stay in our own back-yard or to go over and see
what our neighbor is doing, only to make matters worse for all in th'e end.
If our neighbor gets into an argument for some reason or other that is her
problem, not ours.
Some say it is customary for us to be "sticking our noses into another's
business." Bad as this is, why not keep that custom at home?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Take time to work-'tis the price of success.
The present is time, work with finesse.
Take time to dream-hitch your Wagon to a star.
Don't be discouraged, too great the price by far.
Take time to be friendly-'tis the road to success.
Kind deeds make you happy, you must confess.
Take time to pray-'tis the highway to grace
Work with a will, it helps trials to face.
Play when you play-'tis the secret of youth.
Be honest as the day, 'twill repay you in truth.
THE SENIORS' LAST YEAR
In Fall we Seniors start our twelfth year,
Of all the years of school this is the last.
We meet no more in school with classmates dear,
Like wind the time speeds on 'till all is past.
Our yearbook marks the final days at school
And this we hope to make our greatest work.
Spend happy hours at it as a rule,
To bring success, no hands their duties shirk.
For pictures, poems, essays, drawings, all
Depend upon the effort of the class.
To get the ads and cash cost many a call
By every Senior student lad or lass.
But what a joy when comes our book complete
Remembrance of our schooldays soon to end.
Reminder when in years we cannot meet
Of schoolday joys with many a schoolday friend.

SACRED HEART SODALITY
UR Sacred Heart Sodality
consists of approximately
one hundred and fifty
members. We have two branch-
es, the Iunior and the Senior,
each having its own activities.
During the past year, on the
first Sunday of every month the
members received Holy Com-
munion in a body. The follow-
ing evening at seven-thirty, the
monthly meeting was held. As
a special incentive, and to make
the gatherings more interesting,
a new plan was devised. At each
meeting a dollar, named the "at-
tendance prize" was taken from
the treasury and was given to the
Sodalist whose name happened
to be drawn.
During Lent all of the Sodalists
attended the instructive sermons
given by Reverend Father Schlind-
wein. After the sermon the mem-
bers proceeded to the school
auditorium to hold a card tourna-
ment, which ended at the close of Lent. Those most skilled in the art of card
playing won cash prizes.
Several times during the year, we had "get-togethers", merely to enter-
tain ourselves. ln the making of candy and baking of cookies we became
more efficient and at the same time derived much amusement therefrom.
Some of the social activities in which the Sodality engaged this past year
were: a three-act comedy entitled, "Tillie Goes to Town", an Armistice Day
dance, and a card party. Three times the past year we held a Sodality
Breakfast at the auditorium, and on Friday evenings a group of girls did a bit
of bowling at the Sacred Heart Auditorium. We decided to do our part in
raising funds for the building of the New Hospital. For this benefit a kind
benefactress offered fifty dollars worth of merchandse which was an impetus
for us to get busy. Ere long we acquired a desirable sum which we happily
turned over for the good cause.
Our Sodality is capably directed and chaperoned by Reverend Father
Sebastian, O.S.B. The officers elected in Ianuary were as follows: Presi-
dent, Anna Cuneo, Vice President, Mary Sadleyg Secretary, Cecilia Holz-
hauserg Treasurer, Viola Roth.

SAINT MARYS SODALITY
UR Lady's Sodality of the Saint Mary's Parish, active for many years,
has been the guiding influence of our Catholic young ladies. New
members are received annually, among whom the Senior girls of our
class are well represented. This past year, the reception of new members
took place on the first Sunday of December. The Sodalists proceeded to the
altar railing, where, directed by their Spiritual Advisor, Reverend Father Mar-
tin, they recited the Act of Consecration to Mary. It was not until the monthly
meeting in April that each newly organized member received the Miraculous
Medal of Our Lady designating her a follower and imitator of the Blessed
The regular meeting held each month was opened with prayer by the
Spiritual Advisor, after which new business was discussed. Then the girls
amused themselves by singing, playing games, or in various other ways.
As a special entertainment an interesting feature called "Bank Night"
was given. A Sodalist's name was selected from a box. The girl whose
name was drawn was entitled to fifty cents. If she was absent, the money
was retained until the next meeting when another name was drawn. This
little scheme was an encouragement for all to be present.
During the meetings refreshments were served. We remember with de-
light one assembly when the lunch committee decided to serve chocolate
milk, buns, and wieners. To our amazement it was discovered that the stove

could not be used that night. The difficulty was soon overcome, however,
by the kind act of a neighbor who offered to loan her hot plate. Thus the
"tragedy" ended happily after all, and the lunch was enjoyed very much.
Of special interest to the Sodalists were the Communion breakfasts which
occurred every three or four months, as well as the Mothers' Day dinners
when the Sodalists were given the pleasure of serving their mothers. The
skating parties, dances, Hallowe'en parties, and the memorable Christmas
party afforded much pleasure.
Every first Sunday of the month the Sodalists received Holy Communion
in a body. This was very edifying and proved that the Sodality promotes
the spiritual welfare of its members.
Our present officers are: Alice Hacherl, president, Regina Kuntz, vice-
president, Martha Zitzler, secretary, Bernadine Grotzinger, treasurer, Paul-
ine Herzing and Irene Wehler, marshals.
Our high school is one of the best we know,
It ranks with the highest, statistics showg
We are proud oi our teachers, and their earnest w
To help in our studies, our trials and plays.
The routine of school begins with a Mass
Whose graces assist us, as the moments passg
Assembled in classrooms we offer to God,
Our studies, spare moments, and knowledge there sought.
Our lessons and tasks are done with a will,
Because they are steps that help climbing the hill.
So passes each morning and each afternoon,
The school hours end, quite often too soon.
With prayer we opened our work of the day,
Now at the close we again rise to pray.
We express our sorrow for tasks poorly done
And thank the good God for graces won.
Thus passes each day, each week and each year
Till closing of school life slowly draws near,
From childhood to manhood we've each grown apace
And stand on the threshhold, life's problems to face.
We'll face them with courage, and work with a will
The lessons of schooldays helping us still.
We trust in our God, leaving nothing to fate
For we know he will help us, be it soon, be it late.

OUR SCHOOL LIBRARY, AN ATTRACTIVE CENTER
U AY I please go to the library?" is a familiar phrase used in every class-
room as the student presents his time card to the teacher in charge.
One pupil Wishes to get information suitable for a study topic in re-
ligion, another is doing some research work in history, or in the sciences, or
perhaps in the languages taught at school, in fact, every study is carried to
the library for information concerning it.
Our library is not so spacious, but its selection of books conveys the
necessary information needed throughout the year's course. Recently an
urban visitor remarked that we have about everything needed in a school
library. The shelves, exending along the walls, are arranged in ten sections
including: literature, history, science, poetry, biography, mathematics, fic-
tion, and religion. These total about 4,700 copies. Above the book shelves
there are pictures of American and English authors, an excellent miniature of
Independence Hall, replicas of Sixteenth Century printing, and near the Win-
dows well-kept potted plants add to the cheerfulness of the room. Then, too,

there is the ever-prevailing touch of Catholicity which dominates the entire
building-beautiful religious pictures and statues to constantly remind one of
the nearness of God. Last, but not least, is the bulletin board which one
sees when about to leave. Here may be found notices of newly acquired
books, lists of the best sellers and pictures of their authors, and clippings of
The reading table in the center of the room is sure to attract the attention
of those who come to the library to browse. There may be found: the current
issue of professional magazines, the Catholic Digest, Columbia, the Extension,
Light, Correct English, Business World, Gregg Writer, Fortune, Popular Me-
chanics, Nature Magazine, Scientific American, The Saturday Evening Post,
The classical bulletin holds a pamphlet file, vertical and picture file. The
pamphlets, of which there are about four hundred, are exchanged frequently
and are always arranged to meet the ideas of the season or of current events.
At any time one may go to the library and find the books in order, the
magazines in place, and the librarian ready to aid all who come for informa-
tion. We all agree, that nine times out of ten, when we leave the library we
take with us the desired information.
ERY many of us seem to dislike even the word mathematics, and more so
what it stands for, but with a good will and thorough study, We can mas-
ter the most difficult problems. Mathematics plays so great a part in all
of our factories and industries that it is impossible to get along without it. In
engineering, architecture, mining, etc., the mathematicians play an important
part. .What would the navigator and the astronomer do without it? There-
fore, our teachers insist that we apply ourselves earnestly to this subject.
As soon as we enter high school they introduce us to the X, Y, Z's of Al-
gebra, and master them we must. Soon, we will find it not so difficult as it
looks. Then follow plane geometry and trigonometry with, perhaps, a few
problems in navigation and surveying. In the first of these we meet with
all kinds of figures such as triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, etc. Then
follow cubes, parallelopipeds, cones, pyramids, frustoms and every other geo-
metric form imaginable. Here too, and more so in trigonometry, we meas-
ure things we cannot reach or such as are inaccessible because of height or
obstructions. We stop with the study of trigonometry in high school but are
told of such things as calculus, astronomy and more to follow, if we enter
college. But, like it or not, there is absolute need of mathematics in nearly
every field of achievement so that no real student can afford to neglect it.
In our more advanced studies we are introduced to logs, which are
really short cuts in solving problems and of much help to the mathematician.
Not all students are required to take higher mathematics, but none of
those taking the science course can graduate without taking four years of this
Let us be grateful that our school gives us the opportunity to lay a good
foundation to courses that offer many advantages today to those skilled in

VISUAL EDUCATION IN OUR SCHOOL
ROM the establishment of our high school in 1905 to the present time, the
pupils have enjoyed some of the advantages of visual education. For about
fifteen years our chief aids were charts, models, mounted specimens, fos-
sils, rock samples and a number of displays showing the raw materials, the
steps in the process of manufacture and the finished products of a number of
things we daily use. One of these was made up especially for our use by the
Diamond Crystal Salt Company of St. Clair, Michigan, at the suggestion of
the Sister then in charge of the school. About 1917 a set of 600 Keystone Lan-
tern slides was purchased. These proved to be a great help in our studies.
From time to time slides for special study were borrowed from various sources
and a few were made by some of the students.
The next instrument in this line to be installed was a micro-projector, the
purchase of which was made possible by the assistance of class members.
The use of this instrument is limited to the science classes since only micro-
scopic objects can be projected by it.
Shortly before Christmas, 1937, a Victor Animatophone and a six foot
"Da-lite" screen became the property of our school through the kindness of
Very Reverend Father Timothy Seus, O.S.B., and our alumni. The following
August We joined the film library at State Teacher's College, Clarion, Penn-
sylvania. Since then sound motion pictures have been our chief source in
Although all the films screened thus far have been very interesting and
entertaining, they have always been selected for their educational values.
These have included films depicting religious truths, safety, health, good
sportsmanship, history, travel, people of other lands, English classics, the sci-
ences and vocational guidance. Occasionally a comedy lightened the pro-
gram-good, healthy laughter also has its value.
Among the religious pictures shown We recall particularly the two ver-
sions of the Life of Christ and His Passion which were shown during the lenten
seasons of 1938 and 1939. These pictures enabled us to understand better
and appreciate more fully all that our Divine Savior has done for us. From
the film "The Miracles of Lourdes" we learned how a poor little peasant girl
became a great saint and of the erection of the grotto in honor of the Immac-
ulate Conception in thanksgiving for the many miracles wrought there. "Fab-
iola" carried us back to the first centuries of Christianity, giving us many a
glance into the lives of the Romans-both Christan and pagan-of that time.
Films on health and safety have had a definite part in our moving pic-
ture schedule. Many phases of health which were little realized before are
now vivid in our memories. Colds and other communicable diseases which
we formerly thought of so lightly, now receive the required treatment. The
film, "A New Day", which was loaned to us by the Metropolitan Life Insur-
ance Company, impressed us greatly. In it we saw how pneumonia is treated
today and how essential it is to call a doctor if one is stricken with what seems
to be only a bad cold but which may be the beginning of pneumonia or per-
From the safety films we learned more easily than from books the proper
way to cross a street, how to ride a vehicle of any kind, the best procedure
for pedestrians when walking on roads, safety measures in swimming and

while hunting. Through the kindness of our local game protector, Mr. Ed-
ward Shields, we saw several interesting films from which we learned the
proper handling of a gun while in an automobile and out in the open. Here
we also saw how quickly a conflagration may be started by carelessly drop-
ping among the dried leaves of the forest, a match or cigarette not properly
extinguished, thus causing the loss of much valuable timber, wild life, and
sometimes even human lives. Other safety films from which we derived much
benefit and enjoyment were shown by Officer H. R. McKenna of the Pennsyl-
vania Motor Police of Harrisburg. In May of this year he, for the third time,
gave us these valuable lessons on safety. In his visit to us last September,
Mr. McKenna told us that of the total of 890 fatal accidents in Pennsylvania
for the first six months of l940, Elk County had but two, one of these being a
pedestrian killed by a "hit and run" driver.
Sometimes history is very "dry" but not so when viewed on the screen.
Among the best historical subjects we recently had were "George Washing-
ton's Virginia" and "Colonial National Historical Park" distributed by the Vir-
ginia Conservation Commission of Richmond, Virginia.
"The Last of the Mohicans", a serial in twelve episodes, portrayed Iames
Fenimore Cooper's classic by that name. In this picture we had a good re-
view of a classic and historical data. The screen versions of Dickens' "Oliver
Twist" and "Scrooge" from his "Christmas Carol" were very good.
"Talkies" have proved to be excellent instructors in biology, chemistry
and physics. There are some parts of biology which are rather difficult for
high school students. To see on the sceen experiments which we had our-
selves performed was truly interesting. Then, too, the screen supplied such
demonstrations as cannot be given in the ordinary high school laboratory.
Among the latter we saw "The Mechanisms of Breathing", "The Heart and Cir-
culation", "Digestion of Foods". The films about frogs, spiders and plant traps
taught us how to observe the manner in which these creatures catch insects.
In the chemistry class we learned much about the composition of things
we daily contact and how to use and care for them. When We saw "Oxida-
tion and Reduction", "Velocity of Chemical Reactions" and other films of this
kind, we realized still more how important is the knowledge of chemistry.
Another picture we shall long remember showed us how neoprene is made
and its uses. Neoprene, we learned, is a synthesized rubber-like material
being used so that we need not depend entirely upon foreign countries for
our supply of raw rubber. This picture was received through the kindness
of the E. I. DuPont de Nemours :Sf Company, Wilmington, Delaware, the mer-
its of this film being brought to our attention by Mr. H. B. Eynon.
Although we did not secure many films for the physics class, those we
showed were instructive and interesting. Some of the difficulties of sound
were aptly demonstrated by such films as "The Fundamentals of Accoustics"
and "Sound Waves and Their Sources". The films "Energy and Its Trans-
formation", "Water Power" and "Transportation" gave us a deeper insight
into the many things accomplished by mechanical energy.
Films also gave us some insight into electricity, that mysterious phenom-
enon of nature about which we know so much and yet so little. The film
"Electrostatics" answered those questions about thunderstorms, lightning and
lightning-rods which so often puzzled us. One interesting lesson on electrons
was taught by a film which showed how a movie "talks". After seeing this

film we reviewed the lesson by examining our own projectors and while do-
ing so, noticed with surprise that the tubes used in our machine are Sylvania
tubes-perhaps those very tubes were made by someone from St. Marys, for
a number of people from here are employed at the "Sylvania" in Emporium.
Music and art lovers were delighted with the film which explained the
parts of each group in a symphony orchestra and woodwind choir. Through
the picture, "Ave Maria" we visited one of France's great cathedrals and saw
many masterpieces in painting, sculpture and stained windows. The film
"Soap Sculpture" showed ushow we might become quite proficient in this
Vocational guidance films have been as varied as they were numerous.
These included almost every field of occupation from the successful farmer
to the expert surgeong from the thrifty housewife to the self-sacrificing Red
Cross nurseg from the primary teacher instructing cr child in reading and writ-
ing to the printer and binder of booksg from the untiring scientist delving into
the mysteries of nature to the ever zealous priest laboring in God's vineyard.
ln October, l939, a Tri-purpose projector was added to our visual educa-
tion equipment. While this is the smallest and least expensive of our projec-
tors, it is by no means the least serviceable. The instrument is designed to
project two-by-two slides, either single or double frames, and film slides.
These film slides are not movies but are a series of still pictures each differ-
ing from the preceding one. In effect they are much like lantern slides. A
quarter turn of a knob flashes the next picture on the screen.' Film slides or
film strips, as they are sometimes called, covering almost every subject may
be purchased. Not many of this type are to be rented. Our film slide library
at present is rather small. The most used pictures of this group are a set of
seven rolls called "Health Hero Series" which we received gratis from the
Metropolitan Life Insurance Society. From this company we also received the
"Health Hero" booklets which give a short but graphic account of each of the
great benefactors of humanity. Instead of using the film slides as two-min-
ute movies, we use them and the booklets as illustrated lectures which the
pupils enjoy very much. In this work each pupil of the class memorizes Cin
assigned part and delivers it while the accompanying picture is viewed.
Thus these firm strips serve not only as health lessons but provide good ma-
terial for oral English.
The financing of this project is very simple: "Feature films" are shown
about seven or eight times a year and as the rental of these is quite high, a
nominal admission fee is charged for them. This fee serves to pay all "movie"
expenses-the transportation charges on commercial films, the rental of fea-
tures and shorts and also provides funds for the' replacement of projector and
excitor bulbs, for machine repair and other expenses which might occur.
We, the class of 1941, wish to express our gratitude for and appreciation
of all we have enjoyed through visual education. May it continue to prosper!

ATIN, that subject which presented so many difficulties to us in our school
life, is an asset to every student no matter what career in life he may
choose. lt is an indispensable aid to the lawyer, and to the doctor, as
well as to the members of the other professions,
Every student aspiring to the priesthood in the Catholic Church must pur-
sue an intensive course of Latin, because it is the official language of the
Church, and all its rites and ceremonies are carried on in this tongue.
Latin being a dead language is subject to no more changes, hence, if
once you learn it you need not worry about new or obsolete words. This
also accounts for its use in the Catholic Church where it insures proper in-
terpretation of texts.
Every student is more proficient in the use of English for having studied
Latin, since thousands of English words are derived from this. Then too, it
is an invaluable aid in acquiring other modern tongues, such as Italian or
Spanish, for example.
We should be thankful to our teachers, who insist that their Science
students take at least two years of Latin, and expect four years from their
Academic classes. None of us will have reason to regret time spent in the
study of this "dead" language.
When the early dawn has come,
Friendly moonlight fades away,
And we find ourselves approaching
Another happy, peaceful day.
We joyfully rise from our beds,
Proceed upon our eager way,
To do our duties as we go
And vow to do some good this day.
When evening twilight slow descends,
The glorious sunlight disappears,
We backward glance and ask ourselves
May rest be ours without fears.
When darkness finally descends
When gently is dispersed the light,
We say farewell to our cares
And confident rest for the night.
ID you ever, on a blustery winter's night go out for a walk .on some
swept hill? High above, the stars,
a thousand eyes each searching out your inmost soul.. As you walk,
of snow beneath your feet sounds like guttural voices crying out. The
upon you like
in the clear, cold night, shine down
around you as if wailing for some lost soul.
As we press on against the driving wind we cross over broad, unprotected expanses
of ground, swept clean of their downy cover, while still farther on, beyond a knoll, we see
the snow piling up as do the sands of a desert.
How like a drift of graces piled up
by the wind of God's goodness as it sweeps over
the bulwark of our Faith, mounting up on the other side becoming an ever-growing mound
which will eventually rise to Heaven, harbinger of our salvation.

was the climax of the celebration of Book Week. At first difficulties pre-
sented themselves in the preparation of the play for the management was
left entirely to the Seniorsg however, the production progressed favorably and
was thoroughly enjoyed by the high school students. The keenest interest
was manifested throughout the play which was not only instructive but was
inspirationalg the students were filled with admiration for this author who in
the compilation of his dictionary accomplished something truly Worthwhile
under very trying circumstances.

THE SAINT MARYS CATHOLIC HIGH SCIENCE CLUB
INCE the field trips taken by pupils of the biology classes during the past
ten years were so interesting and instructive a petition was made for the
establishment of a science club so that trips of this kind might be enjoyed
by students no longer in the biology classes.
The satisfactory results of a visit to the Silver Creek Pump Station, which
supplies sparkling, pure water to a part of St. Marys, was the nucleus of our
forming a club due to the great interest manifested at this plant by the girls
as well as the boys. The source of the water, the mechanism of the pumps,
and the automatic supply of purifying agents, as well as those agents them-
selves, held the attention of the class. The explanations were given by Mr.
Wm. Dixon, manager of the St. Marys Water Company, who was most gen-
erous in giving us his time and answering our questions. He even surprised
and delighted us with a treat of ice cream. Now we knew something of the
"how" of our water supply. Why not learn a bit about our other industries?
Thus it was we organized a science club, stipulating the following con-
ditions and objectives:
First, any student of the S. M. C. H. S. who is taking the science or aca-
demic course and who is a Sophomore, Iunior, or Senior is eligible for
Second, the objective of the club is to further the work of science by
a. Studying its applications to daily life.
b. Studying the lives of great scientists especially those of our Faith
thus fitting us to prove to the world that God is the Author of both
religion and science.
c. Encouraging the study of the sciences among our school mates.
To further the work of our club we had a number of motion pictures
which clarified certain phases of scienceg discussions concerning animals and
plants, studies of several scientists, as well as several vocational tours.
Our first trip was made to a hot house owned and operated by Mr. Ioseph
Schloder, who very graciously showed us throughout his buildings explain-
ing some of the processes of horticulture. It was quite a revelation to most of
us to know how much expense, time, and labor are involved in the cultivation
of the flowers we love so much.
Our next expedition took us to the plant of the Builders and Manufactur-
er's Supply Company owned and operated by a number of business men of
St. Marys with Alois I. Hauber president thereof. Mr. Anthony Shultz ex-
plained to us the different kinds of wood and other materials used in the
building of homes. Some of the employees demonstrated the art of cutting
X fxfxlg Nix fx ff. IX'
I ,-. ' ff 4 " C X
wood, making fancy mouldings, applying paints, cutting glass, window mak-
ing and many other interesting phases of this work.
Our third tour was to the bottling plant of the Crystal Beverage Company
owned and operated by Mr. lohn Kuntz. Because of his father's illness, Ger-
ard Kuntz showed us how our favorite drink, Pepsi-Cola, is made and bottled.
The automatic bottle washer claimed much attention because most of us had
not the least idea of how this was accomplished.
We have scheduled several other vocational trips and we are sure that
these will be as educational and interesting as the preceding ones. It is our
hope and ambition that our science club will become larger and better and
that we shall in some way be able to be of real service to others.
Our officers for this year are:
President ..,,.,..,.,....,... Robert Bauer Treasurer ,. ..... Laura Schneider
Vice President . . . .... Edna Grotzinger Secretary . . . ,.... Mary Lenze
UR Student Council, which was organized Ianuary l4 under the super-
vision of the Senior teachers, consisted of thirty-six members. Officers
were elected and by-laws were drawn up. The leading officers were
chosen from the Senior classes, and six monitors were selected from grades
nine, ten, and eleven. Separate meetings for girls and boys were held each
Friday, and a joint meeting the second week of each month.
The principal officers were:
Willis Hanes .... ....... P resident Florence Leithner .............. Secretary

The SUN ALWAYS SHINES
on the HII.LS of KNOWLEDGE
We enter school in order to learn
And plan some day to finish at college.
The mountain of wisdom looks rugged and stern
Yet the sun always shines on the hills of knowledge.
When we hear of achievement in song or story
Our elders have visions for us at college
But we like fools don't care for the glory,
That they say always shines on the hills of knowledge.
So we scarcely take heed when education they stress
And prefer to escape being sent to college
Till too late with regret our loss we confess
Since the sun fails to shine on our hills of knowledge.

GIRL Scout has kinship with the pioneers who have gone before her.
The adventure that was theirs, the joy of accomplishment, the satisfac-
tion of giving service to others belong to the girl of today just as much
as they did to Louisa Alcott, Iuliette Low, or to any other pioneer spirit.
A Girl Scout learns how to live in the open and to have a good time
there. She knows how to use a knife and an ax, to build a safe fire and cook
a meal over it with little or no equipment.
When on a hike or in camp she uses her eyes and discovers many of the
secrets of the woods and fields. She learns to know and appreciate trees,
flowers, and rocks, the ways of animals and birds. She gains a knowledge
of trail signs and how to find the North Star. The ancient stories and legends
about the starry giants are told around the camp fire and become familiar to
Friendliness and helpfulness are Girl Scout ways and a true Scout tries
to be prepared to do her share in home and in community. To this end she
learns to cook and sew, to use a hammer and a saw-to make things herself.
She learns to care for little children and sick persons, to keep herself healthy,
to give First Aid to the injured, also ascertains new Ways of having a good
time in singing, dancing, dramatics, games and story-tellng. She learns about
her town or city, her state and her country,-how they are governed and how
she may best serve them.
The Girl Scout has no new lands in which to pioneer, but she explores
new fields of knowledge, and, in addition to finding new pleasures, she dis-
covers the happiness and joy of giving service.
Girl Scouts are found in all parts of the United States from Maine to Cali-
fornia. Any girl ten years old or over who wishes to become a Scout may
do so. Her annual national membership dues are fifty cents. lf she belongs
to a troop, her fees are paid to the captain who sends them to National Head-
quarters. A Lone Girl Scouts membership dues are paid direct to National
Headquarters. Many troops work out special ways of earning money for
A Senior Girl Scout troop, to which most of the older girls of Saint Marys
belong, is made up oi girls who are interested in carrying out the aims of the
Girl Scout program through activities which are a further development of
those carried on in a regular troop and are particularly appropriate to the
interests of older girls. Since these girls have no formal program, each troop
may work out its own program in accordance with its special interests.
A girl who wishes to be a Scout spends a few weeks with the girls of
the troop she desires to join, with them she soon understands and learns the
requirements. Most important of all is the Girl Scout promise:
On my honor, l will try:
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people at all times,
To obey the Girl Scout Laws.

It is easy to make a promise, but keeping a promise may be hard unless
the significance of the promise is clearly understood.
The Girl Scout Motto "Be prepared" is well known wherever there is
Scouting. When a Scout Member thinks of her motto, she remembers that
she is ready, as a Girl Scout, to use her skill and knowledge when called upon
to do so, whether for herself or for someone else.
An acquaintance with Girl Scouts in other countries may also be made
through reading their stories, singing their songs, and dancing their dances,-
advantages whch are available to the girls of our town. These provide pleas-
ant entertainment at our meetings.
A few words concerning our own troop, perhaps, will not be amiss. ln
the summer we spend one or two weeks in our beautiful camp called "Camp
Mountain Run". Girls from the neighboring towns are permitted to come to
the camp. On Sundays we have a Field Mass read by a Priest from the CCC
camps. The Catholic members of the five local troops receive Holy Com-
munion in a body on the first Sunday of every month.
We are proud of all our troops here in St. Marys and hope that they will
always exist. We feel that Gods blessing is on our work, and we hope
it will continue to be with us in the future.
AVIATION IN ST. MARYS
S in other matters St. Marys is also in the forefront in her interest for
Aviation. A few years ago several airminded men of our little city
organized a flyers' club, bought several planes and established an air-
port. This little beginning has steadily grown so that today our pilots num-
ber twenty. Among these are: Odo, Firm, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Valentine, Reg-
gie Feldbaur, limmy Engle, Earl Van Alstyne, Charles Seelye, Doug Andrews,
Mary Sadley, Iim and Manning Clark, lack Diehl and others.
Not content with what had thus far been achieved plans were made to
get State appropriation to esablish a first class airport here. To date, out-
side help has not been forthcoming, however, we shall not rest content until
St. Marys has an airport to be proud of.
Our planes are five in number, all owned and paid for. There are three
"Cubs", an "American Eagle" and a "Waco". Some of the pilots are not for-
tunate enough to have a plane of their own but we all hope that this summer
will find them the happy possessor of one. The people are much interested
in the flyers' club and show this in a marked Way by their frequent visits to
the field to watch the flyers take off or land their little crafts.

WENDSHIP is one of the most valuable assets that man can ever have or hope for. Life
without a friend! How sad and lonely such a life must bel Some people think that
happiness can be bought, but after trying it they are quiclzly disillusioned. Vfitliout
friends with whom to share their money-bought pleasures they fail to obtain happiness.
lla: can true friendship be bought, "Fair weather" friends, thus acquired, leave as soon
as the money is gone.
lt seems true friendship does not flourish where money is plentiful. Among the wealthy
there is always a lot of selfishness. Should there be one less blessed with this world's
goods whose friendship it were Worth while cultivating and who would give sincere re-
turns, wealth becomes an obstacle, because fear, lest their interest be construed as mer-
cenary, forbids greater intimacy. The truest friends are generally found among the poor.
This is wealth these can share and they share it freely, Who can doubt that the wealth-
iest man is the one who has the greatest number of true friends?
Cling to your friend if you have one-you may fail to find another.

The section here was meant to be
A page oi humor and of Wit,
Now all of you can plainly see
That I did not succeed a bit,
These jokes you read are pretty bad
l'm sure I know just how you feel.
But please do not get cross or mad
Gr use on me your toe or heel.
Did you ever see a woman
Who didn't comb her hair,
Every time she's out in public
I clon't think it's fair.
She will stand in front of mirrors
And pat and fluff her hair,
You are ready to move onwards
But she will keep you there.

HORTLY after the opening of
school Coaches lames Goetz
and Norbert Arnold, called
the first session of practice with
the members which were chosen
for the Basketball team of 1940-
l941. With the return of ten
players from last year's squad
and five new ones, the lads were
waiting for the chance to show
their ability as basketball play-
After strenuous practice the
lads were set to meet their foes
for the oncoming season.
The following is the schedule
and scores for the games between
the "Crusaders" of St. Marys
Catholic High and other teams.

During the season St, Marys became tied with Dubois and Bradford for
the first half of the Erie Diocesan League.
In the playoff Du Bois eliminated the Crusaders by the score of 38-30.
Out of the twenty-four games in which the Crusaders played, fifteen
were won and nine lost, giving them an average of .625 for the year. They
outscored their opponents by 138 points.
Captain Paul Sorg was high scorer for the year with 216 points and Io-
seph Schaberl was second with 211 points.
We wish to express our appreciation to our Athletic Director, Reverend
Fr. Ambrose, for his tireless efforts in directing a team to be proud of and we
extend to him as also to Iimmy Goetz and Norb Arnold, our sincere thanks
for all they have done for the success of our team.

Farewell old school, we have to go
Our days with you are o'er,
The busy, cold, uncertain world
Now opens wide its door.
Along the stormy sea of life
Our ships will have to sail,
Along the by-ways filled with strife
To win-perhaps to fail.
Some trials face us well we know
And troubles not a few,
But our Alma Mater's teachings
Will help to guide us through.
Farewell old school, We'll miss you,
Our heads in sorrow bend,
We'll think of you where'er we go,
Our true and faithful friend.
Farewell old books and pencils, too,
We have to put away,
Farewell old windows, doors, and halls
And walls we saw each day.
God bless you, school, we love so well
You taught us to attain
A place of honor here below,
As well as Heaven gain.
PLAYING THE G-OOD FAIRY
FTEN did Mary play the good fairy when out in the fields. When she saw a lamb
caught in the fence she released it. When a little bird fell from its nest she put it
back again. So did she try each day to make the world happier. One day as she
was roaming about she saw something dark in the grass and she stooped to pick it up.
To her surprise she saw it was a pocket book. He reye opened wide with excitement when
she took out of it several dollar bills and some silver.
"Who could have lost it?" she asked herself. Mary was about to run home to show
the purse to her mother when she espied a boy lying face downward upon the grass be-
side the road. She hurried to the boy and knelt beside him. Touching him lightly upon
the cheek with a wisp of grass, she said, "Look up little boy, what is the matter?" "I've
lost my father's pocket book," was the pitiful answer. "I drove ten sheep to the market
and received payment for them, but I dare not go home, because I've lost the money."
"Do you believe in Saint Anthony?" asked Mary. "He would show you where the
money is." "I cannot believe it,"' said the boy. "Suppose you say a little prayer. Now
repeat after me: 'Saint Anthony, Wonder-Worker of God, Who dost help all those who call
upon thee for aid, who hast great power with God, help me in my need.' "
The boy did as he was told. Within six inches of where he stood lay his pocket book.
Instantly he grasped the purse. Oh, what joy could be seen on that little face when the
money was found intact.
"Is the money all there?" asked Mary. "Every cent," cried the boy. "Do you believe
in good Saint Anthony now?" Mary questioned as she started away. "Yes, Oh, yes.
Please come again and teach me how to pray."

E, the graduating class of Saint Marys Catholic High, take this oppor-
tunity to offer our sincere thanks and grateful appreciation to all who
have given assistance in any way to make possible the publication of
the 1941 annual. We hope all will be pleased with our Memo. We have
tried to put into it our best efforts to justify 'in a small Way the outlay of the
generous donations for financing our year book.
We also wish to express our gratitude to our teachers, the Benedictine
Sisters, who so painstakingly assisted and advanced us in its compilation.
