' l . .l RITA M. CHEATLE Docility, industry, cheerful- ness and kindness are some of Ftita'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 ame bition to be an "Angel of Mercy", ministering to suf- fering humanity, will un- doubtedly become a reality. SOPHIA E. FRITZ This slender miss is assidu- ous, intelligent, very active, and shows marked judgment 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 sport. lg, , , i If y fsili- .ffff A REGINA A. KUNTZ lean is one of the younger graduates. Her studious ap- plication to Latin has aug- mented her vocabulary and helps her out in many a dit- 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 de- serving girl. May God bless her and guide her to the right at all times. I ESTHER M. GREGORY Esther is one of our studious, , Q' academic girls. She is the fi i possessor of a beautilul so' Illf Qprano voice that has been a I .source of entertainment fthroughout her four years ' -' at S. M. C. H. S, Alert and A linprompt in answering quese l 'fi tions in religion class, she It has helped out her class- ' Q" mates many times by her 'freacly answers. She will, ,,'l no doubt, be successful I? 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 nurse. EDNA M. GROTZIN GER Quiet and thoughtful, dili' gent and punctual, Edna is one of the more silent mem- bers ol our class. Difficulties in mathematics and physics are frequently referred to this ambitious student 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 '1ll. 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 ot some day becoming a Laboratory Technician. Her unfailing cheerlulness will be an as- set in the work she contem- plates pursuing. H e a r t y wishes for your success, lanel 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 never missesa chance to use 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 life. 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 lar 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. JAMES 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 any career. 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 patients. "HAVE PEACE AND THE GOD OF PEACE AND OF LOVE SHALL BE WITH YOU." t2 cor. Xm, ll.J J, Y If H t' , , gt ..

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 weep alone." 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 she also hopes to perfect her vocal talent. Perhaps she will eventually become a protes- sional singer. BERTHA I. HERZING Loyalty is one of Bertha's outstanding characteristics. Considerate, conservative, 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. Iudg- 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. KHONENWETTER Gentle, fair-haired Alice is a general favorite. Her quiet, unassuming, and gracious manner enclear 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 pursue. DOROTHY M. LION This is another member ot our scientific group. Dorothy hides her cares beneath a pair of twinkling eyes and smiling lips. She ranks with the pleasantest members of the class. Being favored with musical talent, she hopes to attain the heights of an ac- complished musician. PLORENCE 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 cz satisfactory re- sult is attained. As class sec- retary and throughout her school work she has been found capable and trust- worthy. J PAUL I. SOHG Paul is more interested in the sciences than he is in languages and so chose the SClEl'lCG COUYSB. C'Xll'CI"CLll'- 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 l. 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 effi- 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. MAUHICE 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- ical engineering. FRANCIS V. BLEGGI A happyego-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 hirn laugh at the ex- pense of decency. Bleggi is the kind he'd like. JOSEPH A. HILLEBRAND 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 lite 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. "HAVE PEACE AND THE GOD OF PEACE AND OF LOVE SHALL BE WITH YOU." C2 co.. Xin. ng I g 9 Z -x X tit' , X X :il if llflli 1 f 1 ,ntl .ffl - if - if l , F . 1 ' s MARY IANE BREINDEL Mary lane, known to her in- timate friends as "Blondie", is one of our more reticent classmates. Her quiet de- meanor is partly due to her deep interest in study. French is the forte of our studious companion. She is fond of collecting pictures and spends considerable time at the piano which she plays with ease. Her aim is to be a stenographer. May her wish be realized. AGNES M. AUMAN Agnes is affable, fun-loving, and systematic. In her du- ties as a student assistant librarian she has been faith- ful and capable. Artistically inclined, she finds drawing her favorite pastime. May she have a full, useful, and happy life in whatever sphere it may chance to be. gf' t . J .til-if ' VERNA I. BUCHHEIT "Who brings sunshine into the life of another has sun- shine in his own." These words make us think of Ver- na. She is one of our mirth- ful students and holds the esteem of her many ac- quaintances. The great out- doors strongly appeals to her and she frequently engages in long walks. Her career in life has not been fully de- termined, but rumor has it that she hopes to be a beau- tician. GERTRUDE A. LODES A congenial classmate is "Gertie"gdiligent in perform- ing her school duties and following the motto, "Work before pleasure". Her gentle and refined ways attract and hold friends. Interested in the Commercial field, she will, we feel confident, be- come someone's efficient ac- countant or secretary. tip HELEN E. KHECKLE Truly "a friend in need" is Helen. Whether it be for an assembly program, playlet, or class exercise, when We are in need of a pianist our first call is for Helen who graciously and faithfully complies with our request. The world can never have too many girls like her, so eager daily to approach the holy table. We are certain that her desire to be a teacher will be gratified and we hope that this career will be as happy as her stay with us has been. RUTH L. GEECK Earnest and dependable is Ruth, with an agreeable and ever-willing disposition. As our homeroom librarian she has proved herself very cap- able. Her vigilant eye never misses a book that ts in ar- rears. Besides the Commer- cial subjects she has taken a number of electives in preparation for the profes- sion of nursing which she hopes to follow. ALICE B. DIPPOLD ln Alice "there is an odd mix- ture of sense and nonsense". Grave or gay, as the occa- sion demands, Alice is ever willing to help someone in difficulty. Talented in draw- ing, she favors us occasion- ally by exhibiting her work in the classroom. We hope that she will continue her splendid work along this line. With her charming personal- ity we feel she will meet with success. HELENE M. SCHAUT Helene, the vice president of our class, is a general favor- ite. Her "sunny temper gilds the edge of life's darkest clouds". Merriment reigns when Helene is present. She is an active member of the Glee Club, orchestra, and Student Council. Her aim is to be an aviatrix. May her ambition reach the "height" to which she aspires. .-4'- -- RICHARD A. FRANCIS As stuclont manager in our athletic activities Francis proved himself to be a suc- cessful leader. His efforts to arouse interest among the students and others in follow- ing up the many games our varsity undertook to play this year were almost with- out parallel. At school he showed a preference for tria- onometry in studies and this, with his choice of the natural sciences for his high school course, marks him for a career in the mechanical pro- lessions. ROBERT S. McINTYRE Editor-in-Chief of our year book could not be outdone in his efforts to make this a complete success. In his aim to make this year's Memo the most artistic and the best ever issued he spared neither time nor labor. Always at hand, accommodating and obliging to teachers and pu- pils alike, he was a leader pleasant to work with. He is also a leader in sports and cr member of the basketball team. At school his best et- forts went into the science course. FRANK S. CARINO Artistic, congenial and busi- ness-like are a few of his characteristics. As advertis- ing manager he was most successful in his efforts,never failing to inspire others,while his personal efforts to secure contributions never lagged. He has also displayed his artistic talents in designing our class pennant, of which we are very proud. His wit and congeniality makes us enjoy his companionship. BERNARD C. SIMBECX Friendly, thoughtful, oblig- ing, a gentleman every time, is Bernard. He is a lover of good music, likesthe sciences, makes good use ot his time at school, and finds outdoor life a great attraction during his free time. An interesting and cheerful companion, many a dull moment has been enlivened by him. WILLIS E. HANES As chairman of the Student Council he has shown tact and ability when debatable questions arose. First at school in the morning, never absent, never late, and wide awake he was well fitted for his responsible position. As cheer leader in athletics he helped to win more than one victory during the past two years. His studious applica- tion to chemistry and other sciences will aid him in his desired career as a research chemist. LOUIS L. ROLLICK An unassuming chap of ami- able disposition is Louis. He took the science course dur- ing his four years oi high school. He is a lover of all sports and was a member at the baskeball teams during his attendance at school. During this last year he was on the varsity and did his share to win some important victories. His greatest ambi- tion, however, is to become a great baseball player in a major league.

SMITH "Grace was in her steps, heaven in her eye, In every gesture dignity and truth." Georgia goes about her du- ties mindful of the value of time and labor. We think she is truly lovely. Her per- sistent endeavors will, in all probability, terminate suc- cessfully. RITE C. HACHERL Rita is our best cheerleader. For two seasons her vitality, vim, and vigor have helped to encourage our team in their attempts to be victori- ous. She heartily enters into various activities and enliv- ens them by her presence. Having a pleasing voice and the ability to play the violin, she has little trouble enter- taining her friends and is a pal to all. Her favorite sport is ice skating. KATHERINE ELIZABETH D ONIVAN Although she has been with us only a year Betty has gained many friends through her kindness and gracious- ness. She is active in sports, especially skating, but her favorite amusement is danc- ing. She is president of the Glee Club and is very reli- able in filling this post. Her hope is to be a physical cul- ture teacher. MARY MARTHA BAUER Mary's smile denotes the joy resulting from doing good to others. Soft in her speech and gentle in her ways, she is our conception of a real lady. May she continue to radiate happiness and may her life be filled with sun- shine. t ADELINE E. MINNICK In Adeline we find a true-blue friend, an industrious worker and a lover of outdoor sports. She is endowed with a gen- erous heart and a willing spirit. In her quiet, unassum- ing way she can always be depended upon to perform the odd jobs requested of her. May she find a place in the world as easily as she found a place in the hearts of her classmates. IOSEPHINE M. LEITHNER "Iosie" is one of our smiling companions who considers it her bounden duty to cheer- fully greet all of her associ- ates as soon as they appear. Appreciative in everyxsense of the word, she is very popular with her classmates. Ifqanyone is in difficulty, all help within Iosephine's power is given. She takes great in- terest in the study of Ger- man, delights in reading, and is an ardent basketball fan. We wonder what Helen and Pauline would do with- out her! EDNA M. DIPPOLD Known by her best friends as "Sneaky" is Edna. She is a brave little miss, sincere, neat, punctual, and studious. We still remember how ex- ceptional she was on her first day in school. She alone did not shed tears when she parted from her mother. She is an expert at roller- skating and also motor- cycling. May happiness at- tend her in her future career. GRACE C. FRIEDI. "Her voice was ever soft and low, a lovely thing in woman." Calm, peaceful, and condescending, Grace is very welcome in any circle. She is very fond of sports, especially basketball. Skat- ing and bicycle riding great- ly appeal to her. Collecting rare snap shots is her chief hobby. We shall miss her cheerfuland faithful greeting. 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 openfields and shady woods. He is of a jovial disposition, is kind and charitable, and helps to smooth over school- room difficulties. A friend in need, a friend indeed. CLARENCE l. 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 typewriter supplemented oc- casionally by an adding ma- chine. For outdoor 'sport he has chosen archery which he pursues and lauds with great enthusiasm. PATRICK G. FRIEDL Quiet, reserved, punctual are some of the characteristics ol 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 for 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- booksg 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 successfully. LEO H. WELZ Leo is a member of the Com- mercial class preferring cler- ical work to a course in Sci- ence. Yet he is mechanically inclined and spends much of his time designingaeroplanes or making models of them. He means to make aeronau- tics his life's work and so, if you do not find him in the field or factory you may be sure he is in the sky. WILLIAM I. WING-ENBACH Bill prefers his camera to everything else and has great success with it. His land- scapes, snapshots, etc., rank among the best our camera clubs boast to their credit. Should he choose photogra- phy for his future work he will surely succeed. Tower- ing above all the others of his class in stature William makes us look up to him willy-nilly. There is none, however, that would not wil- lingly show him this defer- ence, as his disposition is such that makes him every- body's friend.

Some day she will reap the fruits of her diligent application to study. She delights in sports and has won admiration for her ability to skate. Agnes has also proved to be a cap- able and gracious hostess. DOHOTHEA M. HABER- BEHGER "Dot's" congenial ways have endeared her to her class- mates. She has proved her- self to be of real service in typing some of our annual material. Typewriting and French are her favorite sub- jects. Her hobby is collect- ing pennants. Her ability to create coiffures makes us feel certain she will find happiness in the field oi beauty culture. HELEN M. MEISEL Optimistic, fun-loving, and generous are qualities ap- plicable to Helen. She does not shirk her duties but pegs away until her difficulties are solved. A number of cities are listed on the records of her traveling experiences. She is considered as "the most fortunate" among her classmates, partly due, per- haps, to her having had so many opportunities in trav- eling. ADELA B . WEINZIERL Adela is one of our Commere cial students. She applies herself diligentlyand patient- ly awaits satisfactory results which are sure to be effected through her earnest endeav- ors. Very zealous in securing advertisements f o r th e Memo, she now has the high- est number to her credit. We are sure that her Irank and unselfish disposition will se- cure for her happiness in the days to come. PAULINE G. HERZING "A little thing, a sunny smile, A loving word at morn." To see Pauline is to behold a countenance beaming with happiness. Serene, placid, accommodating,she finds life a real joy. Her attendance record for daily Mass and Communion shows one hun' dred per cent. She is truly one of our "magnanimous" Catholic students. BERTHA V. HILLEBRAND Bertha is the smallest mem- ber of our class and is as carefree as a Wind-blown leaf. She came to us from Ambridge last August and speedily acquired the friend- ship of her classmates. Her pleasing countenance and sparkling brown eyes reveal the joy in her heart. She is ever ready to enter into any- thing that indicates "fun". Her chief pastime is reading and the sport she enjoys most is ice skating. MARY E. LENZE "The function of culture is not merely to train the pow- ers of enjoyment, but first and supremely lor helpful service," are words that can well be applied to Mary. With her understanding way, her hand so quick to help, and her sympathetic spirit, she has created in our hearts a memory that we shall cher- ish through each day. We predict that Mary's future will be a busy one, render- ing service to her lellowmen. MARTHA B. SCHNEIDER Possessing a pleasing mix- ture of sincerity, humor, and true friendship, Martha re- tains her many friends. With her generous amount of ini- tiative, courage, and perse- verance, she will find the application of her scientific study a great benefit in at- taining her goal - hospital work. RUTH E. SCHLIMM Ruth is of the animated, mirthful type and is very ac- commodating. She acquires friends readily, promptly making them feel at ease by her cheerful ways. She is enthusiastic in furthering ac- tivities and is cz member of the Girl Scouts. One of the few of our classmates who has made a retreat is thoughtful Ruth. Biology is her favorite subject. Her ar- dent desire is to enter the nursing profession. X tflff LEANDER E. RUPPRECHT lteverence, honesty and pa- tience are distinguishing marks of Leander. He tugs away at his books and at the same time tries to make himselt helpful at home. At school, too, he is ever ready to lend a helptul hand to accomplish whatever extra- curricular tasks arise. Though not taking the science course, he has shown considerable aptitude along these lines and will probably make me- chanical work his future pursuit. HAROLD I. FRITZ Harold is our musician, be- ing able to play several in- struments successfully. He is a member at the High School Orchestra and of the Band. He is not only a lover of music but also an ardent ad- mirer of the beauties of na- ture. His life's work will be to beautify garden plots and parks, for even now he is quite successful as an ama- teur landscape gardener. 3 1 r xr I -. , 'L if i' it I. it "HAVE PEACE AND THE GOD OF PEACE AND OF LOVE SHALL BE WITH YOU."

H. S. Was begun Our class agreed upon blue and cream Including the present year '41 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. Michael Herbst. T. OUR CLASS MOTTO "Even the blackest clouds reflect the rainbow." OW truel 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. ' 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: "Nol 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 Ioseph who was sold into slavery and cast into prison but later rose to become the saviour of Egypt. Theresa Neumann has recently said: "If 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."

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 beautiful altar. lust betore 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 of 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. -Quintin Fritz. X fxlxfg XFX fx fx I " f,...,f f .-.f s ENTHRONEMENT 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. ln 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 etfaced 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. lt has also occurred many times that persons have died after the completion of a novena of First Fridays, thus showing the fulfill- ment ot 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 them. Regina Kuntz. lg? REACHING OUR GOAL Let us strive to live and labor If we wish to save our soul, For a crown is waiting for us When we reach our final goal. Ever Work with zeal and courage Keep eternal things in mindg 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.

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 '41 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 '41, The first day of school has come! 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 "Heavens 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 years 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. lt 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 muchg 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 do so. 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 Communion. Iune 10 of this year, l94l, will mark the passing of this class of young men and women numbering 57 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. -Ioseph A. Hillebrand. 33 ,IX Q is X fx fx A L N? f l All f 'jx ZX fx, rf. i , , I SACRED HEART BOYS' CLASS HISTORY OME 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 yearsg 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 our 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. In 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- men. 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. If 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 restraining hand. -Louis Rollick. l., SENIOR GIRLS' CLASS HISTORY HROUGHOUT the eight years of 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 l937 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. 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 34 x X x - . f ' 3 V JA! t I I f U I I I 1 X' T e J l ' a x x X, 3 l.,. I' ' ,Q f x 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 cur 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 grade! 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 Gregory: Saint Ioseph, Dorothy l-iassenetterg Shadow, Theresa Schneider, Beauty, Alice Brennenp Happiness, Rita Hacherl, Wealth, Helen Kreckleg first angel, Norma lean Meyer: second angel, Alice Brenneng chorus of angels, Erma Arnold, Alice Baumer, Corinne Detsch, Letitia Grotzinger, Bernice I-Ierzing, 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- dents. In Ianuary Central organized its first Student Council, its principal work being to assist in the enforcement of rules in the corridors and Assembly Halls. ln 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. -Esther Gregory. :,,. A TRANQUIL DAY The sunshine turns dawn's murky gray The hours advance bringing noonday heat, To beautiful warm and sunlit day. Few strollers now are found on the street. The clouds ride high with sun o'erhead They seek relief from the scorching sun, Arousing the songbirds from their bed. Content to rest the cool shades among. With a chirp and a flutter they fly away When sunset's glow yields to evening's shades ln search of food for their young so gay. The sparkling waters in the VGUGYS g1GClSS, And this procured they in haste return And whispering breezes mong branches above, Then sweetly sing that the young may learn. Are praising God's goodness and kindness and love We mortals, refreshed, join our voices to theirs, Forgetting the while earth's wearisome cares. We raise our eyes to the starlit sky With thanks to our Father who dwells on high. --Paul Trgovac. j 35 T'-w ,-"r21qfvT""'C v -' ' :Y Aki ,o x .Q .nap 'x,. -V, 4, ! .wil Peace After the Storm fOutskir1s of St. Mcxrysj X . 5g'3"", ,J :ff I 'L ' v uv' -e .. I .ur ff ' -'if x BOYS' PROPHECY T was the latter part of the' year 1955 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 darn in Washington State. ln one of these I decided to begin my vacation. 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 l saw in large black head lines, "New Iustice 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 fudge Barsa proved of invaluable assist- ance. Another article in the N. W. N. told of the success of a very rare cerebral operation performed by Dr. Iames Iacob. Doctor lacob was Chief of Staff and head of the surgical department in the city hospital. In another article were discussed the possibilities of the Bed Sox winning the pennant. The Bed 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. I-Ie 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 Associationg Robert Mclntyre 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 37 X Q ,fn 1 , if I X I ff A. h V ' N A -' I 1 ,nfl 1 i X V i I,-,. I , S X A x 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 I 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 I met Francis Bleggi and Patrick Friedl. The former, I learned, 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 I 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 I-Iarold 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, Ioseph Hillebrand who was to accompany me on my return trip to South America This time into the Peruvian fungles 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 I had been able to contact directly or indirectly all of my former classmates. In 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.

X GIRLS' CLASS PROPHECY AST night, the tenth of lune, 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. lust 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 classmates. 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: l'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 I-lassenetter, 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 I-lacherl, 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. "I-lelen 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.

My sketches are completed and I must bid adieu, exclaimed Business. 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 Caesar'. 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. Bed 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 l94l 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 your God's choicest blessings. Good bye, to you and to Central I-Iighl' With these parting words my rnind'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 ot Friendships".

"What's wrong, son?" asked his mother when she heard his words and saw the dis- heartened look upon his face. "Ohl" replied Iohn, "Sister wants everyone to enter the local composition contest, conducted bythe Knights of Saint George. The prize is twenty-tive 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. "l'rn sure you would have as good a chance at winning as Torn 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. lohn greatly feared this excellent opponent. His mother upon retiring for the night cautioned lohn not to stay up too late. lohn then set to work with a will to write the essay in compliance with his kind mother's Wishes. The next morning Iohn 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 Iohn passed hesitatingly up the aisle amid the cheers of his compan- ions he met Tom 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 tor he could plainly hear a voice in the tabernacle saying, "Honesty is the best policy."

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 themg our camera club produces pictures, perhaps not the best in the art, but they show forth earnest effort and their love of nature's beautiesg 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 conveyg the joke section can boast of nothing more than ordinary home- spun humorg 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. ln 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 l 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.

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. I-low wonderful it all wasl 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 thatg I Wanted to touch the bird that meant sonmuch 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 men! Sophia Fritz. l91 SEEKING A IOB 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. I-Iis was a sorry plight, tomorrow he was to begin seeking a job, for his mother needed his support. The next morning Clair scanned the "'I-Ielp Wanted Ads" in the "Evening Sun" several of which appealed to him. I-Ie 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 mechanicp 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?" I-lastily 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, 44 - X x - V f f f l X I Z I! X in Y Q' -X ,fi 1 1 x x N, l V W ,,.' Z' '. ' , "rf X 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 officials office. '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. "I 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, l shall remember first to ask the aid of Our Lady of Perpetual Help." Florence Leithner. l.g-. MY MOTHER 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. Ohl how we missed that mother's love, And asked her blessing from above. lal --Robert Mclntyre.

It is incredible how much was Written by the monk-Pope,Saint Gregory, who 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 maxims. In 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. It 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.

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. lf 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 price. 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. l wonder how many towns this size can boast of like advantages. Harold Fritz. i41 TRUST 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.

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 ot 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 ot 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 the nations. 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. R. Mclntyre VVILL POWER 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 iirm 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 ditfident and met with ridicule, but they struggled onward doing what they thought was right ignoring the taunts ot the people, thus eventually making a success of them selves. Had these men been weak-willed, their efforts would have resulted in failure. 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. Bertha M.

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 assert 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 it 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 ot our public schools and to the visual degradation ot our movies. In 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 ot 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 ot view. Ruth Geeck. SHOES, AN INDEX TC PERSONALITY S we travel through lite, we meet many persons some ot whom become our constant companions, others we never see again. Nevertheless, our memories retain the impression made upon us bythe persons we meet from day to day. We notice the details of their apparel, especially their shoes. It 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. lt, however, we come in contact with a person whose shoes are covered with dust, the shoe laces tull of knots, the heels crooked-everything about his shoes points to the tact 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. It we are so ready to determine the character ot others, let us remember that they, too, pass judgment upon us, and that "Shoes are an index to per- sonality". Florence Leithner. 51 Q IN! If lxfx lx, f NOTHING VENTURED. NOTHING WON WEEK before Lent the Seniors busily discussed plans for a cake sale. ln 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 happenedl 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 factor4as 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- ested parent. 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. Florence Leithner. -.-,T HAPPINESS 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?

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. -William Wingenbach. 53 '.w - s RELIGIOUS SCENES Top to bottom: Left: Corpus Christi Altar, Corpus Christi Altar, Crucifix, , li' 11 r . .I I ' A ,- , 4-C- N ff ",f,I-rv B-1 Hkvq' , .nur , 1---.,,r,i.:r 'Hf 7" L .

We have two branch- es, the lunior 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. In 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 adesirable 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 Sadley, Secretary, Cecilia Holz- hauser, Treasurer, Viola Roth. REVEREND FATHER SEBASTIAN, O.S.B.

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 ot 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 ot Our Lady designating her a follower and imitator of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 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. It 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 56 f X X f 'f ff wo .2511 T f' T -- i s 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. Ot 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, Halloween 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 l-Iacherl, presidentg Regina Kuntz, vice- president, Martha Zitzler, secretary, Bernadine Grotzinger, treasurer, Paul- ine Herzing and Irene Wehler, marshals. Alice Kronenwetter. ig- SCHOOL LIFE Our high school is one of the best we know, It ranks with the highest, statistics show, We are proud of our teachers, and their earnest ways To help in our studies, our trials and plays, The routine of school begins with a Mass Whose graces assist us, as the moments pass: 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. -Frank Carina.

OUR SCHOOL LIBRARY, AN ATTRACTIVE CENTER XX AY l 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, tic- 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 cheerlulness ot the room. Then, too, 58 1 J, I," 1 l-t1 x L. - 4. V , 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 general interest. 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, and others. 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. Angela Gerg. -1.41. MATHEMATICS 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. ln 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 study. 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 mechanical sciences.

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 l9l7 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, OSB., and our alumni. The following August we joined the film library at State Teachers College, Clarion, Penn- sylvania. Since then sound motion pictures have been our chief source in visual education. 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 l938 and l939. 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- haps influenza. 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 B4 x ,X X ui XLXK , gl- 1 I .I f I .,. 47- " ' V 'Q x if ii j 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. ln 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 l94U, 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 lames Fenimore Coopers classic by that name. ln 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. ln 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 61 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 lts 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 65. x Xu- ff 1 X K J - 'X x x X 1 f . , ,'X 1 "h" I u 54 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 us how we might become quite proficient in this line. 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 a child in reading and writ ing to the printer-and binder of books, from the untiring scientist delving into the mysteries of nature to the ever zealous priest laboring in Gods vineyard ln October, l-939, 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 an 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 tea tures and shorts and also provides funds for the replacement ot 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' Helene Schaut 65 1 f- 1 , J' X 7 .-." 1 . - .X- LATIN ATlN, 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 ot 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 ltalian 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. Robert Barsa. l.,, DAY When the early dawn has come, When evening twilight slow descends, Friendly moonlight fades away, The glorious sunlight disappears, And we find ourselves approaching We backward glance and ask ourselves Another happy, peaceful day. May rest be ours without fears. We joyfully rise from our beds, When darkness finally descends Proceed upon our eager way: When gently is dispersed the light, To do our duties as we go We say farewell to our cares And VOW to do SOID6 QOOCI thiS dClY- And confident rest for the night. -Patrick Friedl. -.4-.- DRIFTING ID you ever, on a blustery winter's night go out for a walk on some barren, wind- swept hill? High above, the stars, in the clear, cold night, shine clown upon you like a thousand eyes each searching out your inmost soul. As you walk, the crunching of snow beneath your feet sounds like guttural voices crying out. The wind screams 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 ol our' salvation. -Bert Clark. 68 Charming Rustic Scenes - St. Marys, Pcs 3 X if 1 I 1 f f ff ,- '91, 45,41 X sz .-." 1 - ..

The keenest interest was manifested throughout the play which was not only instructive but was inspirational, 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 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 membership. 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 science, discussions concerning animals and plantsg studies of several scientists, as well as several vocational tours. Our first trip was made to a hot house owned and operated by Mr. loseph Schloder, who very graciously showed us throughout his buildings explain- ing some of the processes oi horticulture. lt 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. l-lauber 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 71 ,If S f x X X may 1 fx ,XI ff I "fi x I 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. Iohn 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. lt 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.

The SUN ALWAYS SHINES on the HILLS 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 ot 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 tor 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, -James Iacob. 72 Y L 19 v .F dealer x4irf'f?gf -253 ,if r I' fs ! , Avila" " ' A , gy, SENIOR GIRLS IN ACTION-Top to bottom: First row: Alice Di pold, Helen Meisel, Agnes Kronenwetter, Helen Meisel, Edna Grotzinger, lane Gregory, Bertha Hillebrand, Adeline Minniclc, Borothy Hassenetter, Pauline Herzing, Agnes Fischer.

' ,X x lxfx ii X51 if Xxfxlx, --1 - fr' 1, ' " - X f f GIRL SCOUTS 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 her. 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 Scout's membership dues are paid direct to National Headquarters. Many troops work out special ways of earning money for membership dues. A Senior Girl Scout troop, to which most of the older girls of Saint Marys belong, is made up of 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 ct 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, I will try: To do my duty to God and my country, To help other people at all times, To obey the Girl Scout Laws. 74 C 'xfxfg xi-me ilf'tf f fxfe X' i- .-." 1' J - ' - X j 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. In 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 God's blessing is on our work, and we hope it will continue to be with us in the future. Helen Kreckle. 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, lim 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.

FRIENDSHIP l'tlElNlDSHIP is one of the most valuable assets that man can ever have or hope for. Life without a friendl How sad and lonely such a life must bel Some people think that happiness can be bought, but after trying it they are quickly disillusioned. Without friends with whom to share their money-bought pleasures they fail to obtain happiness, llo: 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 thcre is always a lot of selfishness. Should there be one less blessed with this Worlds 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. -Clarence Detsch. 79 SOPHOMORE GIRLS Seated, left to right: Martha Leithner, Martha Grotzinger, Evelyn Fritz, Edna Herzing, Anna Herzing, Ruth Lenze, Theresa Schneider, Arlene Robinson, Esther Roth, Louise Schaut, lane Samick, Monica Wiesner, Grace Dumich.

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. -Bertha Hillebrand l4l. PLAYING THE GOOD 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 l'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. "ls 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." -Iosephine Leithner. LUQQJ as , 2 N Q 1 !
