For example a laborer a mechanic a religious or a physician always wants to accomplish the most he possibly can by working onward- never backward. The tramp is the only type of person who does not wish to accomplish anything but nevertheless desires to move onward. A decidious tree is a familiar example of moving onward. First the tree is felled then the bark is peeled then it is taken to a saw-mill where it is rolled into a pond and washed 'run through the mill and cut into many different shapes. After this proces' the lumber is used for thousands of purposes includ- ing furniture pencils and vehicles. Thus we see that the tree moves onward rntil it reaches its final destination which God alone intended it to do, From the above-mentioned examples we may conclude that while Work- ing onward until we have eached our earthly goal we are also preparing for our eternal goal-Heaven and the Beatific Vision which God has promised. By conscientiously working onward ever, we will certainly save our souls, which is the only reason why we are placed in this world. ---Martha Meier.

Although she was not so well known by some of the pupils to many she was one of their best friends and some of us will always remember her as our faithful teacher. Her many duties being finished on earth she went forth to serve her Father in Heaven. Our class remembers with pleasure the tea they sponsored for the school faculty. After lunch was served entertainment was provided by different students poems were recited and many interesting stories were told. Which of us can ever forget the day we selected our class colors? Or the many inter- esting assemblies during that last year? We had the honor of having Mr. George Hossfield the world's champion typist demonstrate for us and give us many important points in typ- ing. Mr. Bob Ford showed the high school faculty and students many thrilling pictures on wild life which he had taken and which proved very educational as well as interesting. Father Alcuin head of the department of education St. Vincent's College at Latrobe Pennsylvania visited our school in March for several days and spoke to the students on 'The Present Need to Develop Leadership." Each month George Rupprecht Esquire gave interesting talks on careers and other important topics which will prove valuable to us as we progress through life. Then came hours and days of toil on the year book when everyone was busy getting advertisements and snapshots, writing articles, character sketches, and assisting in any way that would make our year book a success. Finally the day of graduation dawned, the day that had seemed so far away andfto which we had been looking forward for twelve long YSGYS. Now as the long years of our grade and high school training are over we wish to thank l 5 FJ J, sg. 'f" " Q l v fri Y' X -f s--- 1 .

The following September we were enrolled as Sophomores taking new subjects among them biology secorid year German and Latin. Along with these studies we joined the Glee Club the Science Club and others. Last but not least we took great interest in sports es- pecially in the basketball team. Time moved fast and soon we were promoted to the Iunior room. As Iuniors we took Chemistry and Bookkeeping as electives. Chemistry to the boys who were taking it was just twice as much fun as biology- and the boys who took book- keeping were equally pleased with this subject. Our choice of clubs was the same as in the Sophomore year but all were more sport loving than the year before and consequently our studies suffered. At last we were enrolled as Seniors and as such we let the other boys know this by initiating the Freshmen as we had been initiated by other Seniors. Soon however we got over this feeling of superiority and felt no greater than we had felt before. As Seniors this year, we have the privilege of putting out a school paper for the issuing of which we are entirely responsible the teachers acting only as advisors. Also during this year we have organized a Catholic Mission Crusade in which we had the full cooperation of all the stu- dents as was shown by their interest in every movement suggested. The Student Council was reorganized and is functioning under a new set of by-laws. In conclusion I wish to say that it is our hope and wish that every boy and girl may have the opportunity we had of securing a thoroughly Catholic education under the capable management of our Bene- dictine Sisters in the Catholic Central justly proud of the credit reflected upon her by the outstanding achievement of many of her former graduates. We pledge loyalty to our school now and in all years to come. -L. A. Ritter. '32 l 3 Q ' ff'-I W j I D H - T f Q- ml 3- - .

MRobert M. Bauer. THE HOUSE OF GOD S one enters St. Marys the first thing that meets his eye is the Cross of our St. Marys church. Situated on a high hill it rises above other buildings symbolically showing its primary importance. This Church was truly built by tears sweat and blood. The corner stone was laid on Iune 27 1852 and the first divine service was held on December 8 1853. The method of building this remarkable monument of our forefathers was indeed a tedious one. The men worked at it during all of their spare time and until day faded away irto night. While they were busy at this task, one could see all types of men: bakers, laborers a doctor, a lawyeriin short, men from every walk of life. Helping them in their religious task were their faithful wives who would carry the stones in their apron-. The women brought bread from home for their husbands and procured water from the church cistern.

A . . , Y W X WHITE TAIL DEER OF PENNSYLVANIA HE white tail deer is Americas swiftest most graceful and best known large game mammal When Pennsylvania was first settled there was an abundance of game es peclally deer But in the years that followed our wild life was slaughtered without re straint and sold to markets in the East because at this time there were no laws to prohibit their doing so Forest fires also played great havoc with our game The dense growth of underbrush which replaced the timber that had been cut was often set on fire by sparks from passing trains or by careless persons Such fires not only destroyed their hiding places but killed many of our wild animals The deer population became so depleted that the sight of a deer was reported in the headlines of newspapers Because of these pitiable conditions sportsmen realized that something must be done This need brought about the organization of the Pennsylvania Game Commission in 1896 tention To restore the herd was a long and tedious task but success has crowned the ef forts of sportsmen for today the white tail deer is often seen in field and wood and near highways It is a pretty sight to see a buck proudly displaying his antlers and watching the doe with little fawns frisking about them Young deer or fawn are usually born in April or May Nature has provided protection for fawns in several ways When born it has white spots dotting its reddish brown coot This protective coloration makes it almost impossible to be seen when it is lying on the ground particularly when the sun is shining through the leaves For three months after birth the fawn has no scent and even its greatest enemies such as the dog and Wildcat cannot scent it When danger is near a doe may leave her young because if she did re main she would attract attention to the fawn Because of this trait people often think that the fawn has been deserted and take it home to care for it This should not be done for the doe has not deserted her young at thi time but may desert it when it is returned to the woods bearing a human scent When the fawn becomes strong its mother teaches it to be careful and alert to swim run and nurnerous other traits Nature also protects the young d er against molestations of the buck which often fights the fawn of which he is iealous ln mid winter or the late winter months the buck loses it antlers New ones begin to grow about the tirne the fawn is born These new antlers are bloody sensitive and sore ln order to avoid hurting them the buck goes off by himself to some quiet part of the woods until the antlt. s are fully developed Antlers in this stage are known as in the velvet because they are soft and covered with a hair like substance After a while the circulation ceases in the new antlers and they become itchy. The buck then rubs them against trees- this is why we see so many saplings in the woods which have the bark rubbed off. While the buck was growing his new antlers the fawn which at first was weak and helpless, has had an opportunity to grow in size and strength without being molested. Many people think that they can tell the age of a buck by the size and number of points on its antlers. This is not true for experiments have shown that the size of the bucks antlers are due to the kind of food it gets. A buck that gets excellent food may have as high as six or eight points on his antlers when he is two years old while an older buck may never develop more than "spikes" or a single point on each side if the food he gets is very poor. During the past few years the deer herd increased so rapidly that the Game Commis- sion had to adjust the season to diminish them. Vlfhen too numerous the food supply in the woods is inadequate and many deer die of starvation or are stunted in growth. When their food supply in the woods fails deer visit farms causing considerable damage. The Game Commission is doing all it can to keep the deer herd fit and within bounds. Because of the large number of deer in Pennsylvania hunters from nearly every state in the Union come here to hunt. In the deer season of 1939 over 650 OOO licenses were is- sued to hunters of this state alone besides those issued to hunters from thirty-five other states. Pennylvania is Americas greatest hunting state. More deer are killed in this state than in any other. An abundance of wild life not only furnishes wholesome recreation for our people but also brings about an increase of trade. lt is estimated that the hunters that flow into Elk County each year bring an increase in business amounting to about 43 W Q 7 I2 4, 't i f f' H 5 qi " , , .s..s.

Very often we see that pupils are so inadequately informed on essential current topics that it would be pitiful if they were the only ones to take over the ruling of our country, Educators realize this and are trying to better the school methods and to make their pupils become more interested in intellectual matters. Every high school pupil should be glad to cooperate with his teachers, realizing that the training he receives is to his advantage and a preparation for the days to come. In high school pupils are taught not only the necessary subjects but also the true meaning of citizenship and the art of appreciating the great favors bestowed upon them. Our country needs loyal citizens and the school is the best training camp to produce worthwhile citizens, ---Mary Ann Werner, 48 ,fi 119142 - , y' , "'f'i-':. tr1l:ff H3 '2 dt we V92 F1rst Ald and the Courses Gwen 1n Our Local Cathohc Schools CCORDING to the Amer1can Red Cross Flrst Ald IS the 1mmed1ate temporary care g1ven 1n case of acc1dent or sudden 1llness before the SEYVICES of a phys1c1an can be secured One of the Ob16Cl1V6S of f1rst Axd IS the preventlon of acc1dents Many acc1dents m1nor or ser1ous wh1ch occur da1ly throughout the country are due to carelessness or lack of con s1derat1on toward ones ne1ghbors About the home many hazards as kettles Wllh hot l1qu1ds be1ng placed near the handles of vessels placed toward the outs1de of the stove of ch1ldren attachlng percolator or 1ron cords where some acc1dents are caused by such edge of a stove s1nk or table matches kept w1th1n the reach unfortunate 1nd1v1dual may tr1p over them thus pullrng the apparatus over ACC1dGHlS can be prevented by placmg vessels conta1n1ng hot llqU1dS 1n a safe place matche kept 1n a contouner away from the reach of ch1ldren attachrng cords where th re IS no danger of anyone stumbl1ng over them One fmds hazards everywhere whether at work or at play Smce 1t 1 the duty of the far Os posslble The need of F1rst A1d 1s very 1mportar1t Cuts sprams burns or bru1ses may be small at the t1me of the acc1dent but due to neghgence become SGTIOUS 1f not treated properly from the moment 1ncurred The need of F1rst A1d 1n our present CTISIS IS most 1mportant for It IS ev1dent that many tramed helpers should be avallable to render SeTV1C9S whenever necessary Smce most acc1dents occur when the SSTVICSS of a phys1c1an are not 1mmed1ately ava1l able the rmportance of F1rst A1d lb apparent Doctor Agnew of Ph1ladelph1a once sazd Every surgeon knows full well that ln many cases of 1n1ur1es the cr1s1s 1s reached before the pat1ent arr1ves at the hospltal gate and the lack of mstructed a1d at f1rst often turns the table agamst h1m Flrst A1d has been taught 1n our school for a number of years However last year 1940 1941 was the f1rst t1me that Red Cross cert1f1cates were 1ssued F1fty even boys and g1rls completed the Standard Flrst A1d Courses at that trme In the current year two lun1or F1rst A1d courses were g1ven IH the grades of the Sacred Heart and St Marys Paroch1al Schools four lunlor classes to the Freshmen and three Stan dard F1FSl A1d Courses to the other members of the hrgh school The number of Iumors who ave rece1ved cert1l1cates IS about nlnety The number of Standard cert1f1cates IS approxtmately e1ghty These classes the defense program was a further 1ncer1t1ve for the successful lt IS the amb1t1on of many boys and gr ls to cont1nue th1s lf F1rst A1d 1n order to become mstructors 49 students who have rece1ved were begun IH October and accompl1shment of lhIS work study takmg further courses Gertrude Bayer xi !

You Wlll Never FIND Tlme for Anythmg-If You Want Tlme You Must Make It-Charles Buckstan N all parts of the world we meet people wno can never find time to do anything. Did they ever try to reason out why they can't find time? Of course not because they do not have time for logical reasoning. Today the world is one continuous rush. People do not stop for anything- they just rush from one place to anothereand from one thing to another. ln this money-crazed world the idea is to get ahead, no matter what the cost may be. People never stop to think that they must have time for rest and relaxation if they are to accomplish anything worthwhile, lf one were questioned why he does not have time for rest, he would probably give some flimsy excuse that he had too much to do and could not find time for it. So, throughout life many people have time for what they consider the "big things" and allow certain matters which they deem trifling to slip from their grasp, "Trifles make per- fection, but perfection is no trifle." We should provide time for everythingg never depend on finding it, but make it. -Walburga Gausman. 54 11842 gm me 119142 .VV ' a. 21 -1""'x 1- -J aff A Stop and See the Beczuues about St Marys 8 ll Q --Q31 E-go lI914P A STUDENT S PRAYER O dear Mary sweet and fatr I..1sten to a tudents prayer Beg of God for me today That I-Ie wtth me wxll ever stay I know not all I do IS rlght But stronger to become Ill ftght Reslst I must the Dexxls snare And lllce vou too be sweet and a1r Each morn as I awake Ill pray That God wtll guard me all the day Ill try to do the lo st I can To help for aye rny fellow man And as I kne I at close of day Forgtveness of my sms Ill pray For me dear Mary I 1mplore That you pet1t1on more and more Helen Fleblc i,?

Father Martin. A new class was admitted December 7th members in a body dedicating themselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary their patroness. Pins were distributed to them in February. Meetings which have been held on the first Monday of each month were opened and closed with a prayer to our Blessed Lady. Various religious topics were then placed into a box called "The Religious Question Box" and were discussed by Father Martin. At each meeting a very tasty luncheon was served and entertainment was provided by the com- mittees chosen at a previous meeting for those purposes. An attendance prize of fifty cents was given to the member present who held the winning number. A Halloween party was given at which the members were dressed in costumes, they caricatured what their attire represented. Afterwards a lunch was served. The members of the sodality also held a Christmas party at which one of the girls acted as Santa Claus and distributed gifts brought by the members. Two girls volunteered for the lunch committee, meanwhile the girls entertained themselves by playing games, singing and dancing. The Sodalists received Holy Communion in a body on the first Sunday of each month. A Communion breakfast for the members was held on May 3rd, A Mothers' Day Social was held on World Sodality Day, May 10th. Members who held office during the past year were: Alice Grotzinger, presidentg Erma Meier, vice president, Mary Lenze, secretary, Marie Weinzierl, treasurer. -Rita lane Sorg. 58 xl if 59 , lt .

Rules were mode as to who may be admitted into the club. To become a member one must take either the Scientific course or include in another course science electives and also they must be either Sophomore, lunior or Senior students, Meetings begin with prayerg then the minutes are read by the secretary- then old busi- ness is discussed and finally new business is brought up, After all this is taken care of, discussions are usually brought up on various scientific problems. Occasionally movies are shown which clarify certain difficulties met with ir our science courses. From time to time meetings are suspended and all members of the club make excur- sions to different business establishments or factories. Our first excursion took us to the Schloder Greenhouse where the different phases of horticulture were explained to us by th. owner Mr. loseph Schloder. The second excursion was made to the Elk Specialty Company where a very interesting lecture was gi.en on refrigeration and an explanation of the work- ings of the "Dual Temp" a Stewart Vlfarner refrigerator. The Corbett Cabinet Company was the factory next visited by the club. Mr. Richard Pontzer showed us about the factory explaining the different types of saws and planes. The factory is chiefly engaged in making religious crosses. Our final trip took us to the Elk County Dairy Products Co. where the different phases of pasteurizing, homogenizing and testing of milk were explained by Mr. Smith, owner of the company. The members of the Science Club feel very grateful to all who have so' generously given them the opportunity and their time so that they may understand better the useful- ness of their courses in science. -e13'aul I.

H. S. orches- tra. Up another rung of the ladder we ascended and we found ourselves improving after the two years of work, Many appointments were on our calendar of music so that meant a busy year for the participants. Playing for the Christmas Operetta, the Teachers Conven- tion, the musical, assembly programs, and again the commencement program increased our enthusiasm to become better in this popular art. Near the latter part of the semester Mr. Paul Lang supervised our orchestra. To him as well as to the Sister directress We owe the progress we made in our Iunior year. Before entering upon our last school year, we met during the summer months to make plans for the future. Classical music composed by Americans and the music previously used were put on the program along with some social activities. Talks on orchestration and an R. C. A. demonstration were given by Mr. Lang before he terminated his work with our orchestra and returned to Pittsburgh. Shortly after the opening of our Senior year the orchestra, in line with other clubs of the school, adopted parliamentary procedure. Election of officers resulted in the following: President, Gertrude Rettgerg vice president, Aurelius Marconi, secretary, Gertrude Bayer, librarian, Mary Krellner. At this time the orchestra included the following instruments: piano, violins, saxophone, trumpets and drums. A uniform was adopted consisting of blue skirts and white blouses. Paul I-lerfurth's arrangements of school music was used for various assembly programs throughout the year. A concert, at which individual talent was displayed, was given by this organization before our membership was concluded. Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal protected us and effected for us a happy departure from the ranks of the C. H. S. Orchestra, may she continue to favor our successors. -Gertrude Flettger.
