ANN BAUER Brilliant in mind and genial in disposition, an ardent stud- ent, a lover of sports and a general favorite of all, are Ann's capable qualities. Add- ed to these, her fidelity to the choir, her abundance of wit and energy, and her general enthusiasm will give her an opportunity of gaining higher learning. DELORES I. BRENNAN "Lorie's" endearing smile is a true indication of her conf geniality and readiness to oblige. She is fond of sports- basketball and bowling. Her drawl expressions added much humor to the play, "Hound the Clock with Claire". May happiness at' tend her in her future career. CHARLES W. AMBUSKE Cheerful "Charlie" is al- ways ready to meet and wel- come his schoolmates. Much of his time is spent in experi- menting with electrical equip- ment. He is also a lover of mathematics. If a problem is given him to solve, immedia- tely his interest is aroused and he obtains pleasing re- sults. ln succeeding years he will probably be a radio or electrical engineer. N. u of tg f J l CLARENCE I. BAUER Clarence is our Vice-presi- dent. We could not have chosen anyone who would have filled this position in a MARY T. BRAUN "Braunie", a girl small in stature, possesses sincerity, loyalty, and cheerfulness. If you want extra tasks com- pleted, ask Mary. She has a ready vocabulary and her love for scientific work will be effectively applied to her fue ture career. Her daily atten- dance at Mass will be her strength. , EILEEN R.

Ruth's earnest, dependable disposition will be an inval- uable asset to her in the scientific career which she chooses to follow. She is a great lover of outdoors and takes special interest in sports. Gifted with a re- flected mind, she has met suc- cess as a debater and as a laboratory technician. DORIS B . DETSCH "Dodee," a neat little aca- demic student, ranks high in mathematics and chemistry. She enjoys the outdoors, rol- ler-skating, and music, Her influence, if directed in the right channel, will effect much good. LEONA R. DETSCH Leona is quiet, thoughtful, and considerate. She is neat in both dress and work. She is friendly to all and faithful booster for the Crusaders. Her pleasing admixture of wit, mirth and cheerfulness have secured her many compan- ions. RITA M. FRANK Did you ever see Rita with- out a smile lighting up her rosy cheeks? Freely given at all times, it has won for her many friends. She has a gen- tle, quiet disposition and is always ready to give aid to the needy. She will surely find success in her chosen career because of her sincer- ity and ambition. 14 HARRY E. BAUER Harry is a vivacious and carefree lad, usually found in the midst of excitement. His pleasing smile and sincere in- terest in his fellow compan- ions will, no doubt, assure him popularity. A sports- man who is happiest when with a gun, he is hiking about the forests. Harry's hobbies are stamp-collecting, reading, bird study, and pigeon rais- ing. WILLIAM P. CARINO Since the first year of high school, "Bill" has been our leader. Not a difficulty arises but what his opinion is considered. As president of our class, he is confronted with many duties, but we know he can manage. The Memo advertisements show a decided increase due to Wil- liam's zealous work. we The MEMO-1946 :i:.x:n:u:i:s :am :na ii :sm ra ' mrnmmmr LAVERN H.

FRIEDL lsadore, familiarly known as, "lke', is a respectful and diligent student. While in school the Commercial sub- iects engage his interestp but in his leisure moments, sports hold a great attraction for him. He is a member of Cen- tral's varsity basketball team and plays baseballl and football, Hunting and fish- ing are his delight, DOLORES M. FRIEDI. Realizing the importance of Holy Mass, she attends daily. Dolores is a lover of nature and spends many happy hours outdoors. She is a con- scientious girl and brilliant in scientific studies. Her beauti- ful smile has won her lasting friends. Some of Dolores' qualities are sweetness, kind- ness, loyalty and diligence. Success awaits you, Dolores! RUTH I. FRITZ "Fritz", always glowing with happiness and good hu- mor, is a lover of outdoors. The merry twinkle in her eye denotes a fun-loving Miss whose merriment has bright- ened many dull days. We hope her patients will love her chatter as much as we do and appreciate her sincerity and faithfulness. LILLIAN A. GREGORY "Lil", one of our busy classmates, is a Commercial student. She is a diligent worker in and out of school. Hiking, bowling, and motion pictures occupy much of her spare time. She has great hope of becoming a secretary. MARY A. HACHERL Her quiet and fascinating humor endears Mary to all of us. Her deep piety and de- votion at daily Mass assure her success in the future.

Music and reading take up her leisure hours. She very capably fil- led her office as class treas- urer. This lovely Miss has hopes of becoming a dieti- cian. DONALD G. KLAIBER An avid baseball fan who is seldom seen without a pam- phlet or book relating to his favorite sport. He is very cooperative and always ready to participate in any activity. Commercial subjects keep him busy. Undoubtedly, he will be employed in a local office where his congenial ways will win for him a permanent posi- tion. DOROTHY F. HAMMER A cheerful word and smile awaits us when we meet Dorothy. Though shy and re- served, she has made many friends. Her high rank in studies is due to her dili- gence. Because of her gentle- ness and quietness of manner she will be successful as a nurse. She has been a mem- ber of the Sacred Heart choir for the past eight years and has attended Mass daily. RALPH G. LANZEL Apparently Ralph is a happy-go-lucky student, but he is also capable of serious thought. A persistent spirit in class or on the basketball court win him our respect and esteem. He is a four-letter man, playing guard on our school varsity team. He also excels in baseball and swim- ming. DOLORES M. I-IERZING With a Wealth of ambition, thoughtful Dolores performs her Work well and is ever ready to aid others. She takes active interest in sports and is a faithful "rooter" at all basketball games. She pursues the Commercial course and ranlcs high in her class. --a MQ: lift, .. DONALD L. MEYER As treasurer of his class, Donald displays the qualities essential of one in such a position. He is a zealous worker, an intelligent student. His knowledge is confined, not only to mathematics and sci- ence, but also to fields vary- ing from sports to wood. His integrity and determination will serve him well when he assumes future responsibili- ties. 16 -we The MEMO - 1946 I-oSIQYJAEIISZJIIEIZZII-'AEIISZIDZSSZYDEQEEISJZABIAEQZEEEEEIEXZXZEAXSSZEQZTQJZXIEDEESSEX- 7- f' P 3 s i tl ,. fltxfl , t FAITH L.

As editor of the Hides" he has been found to be both reliable and conscientious. English and history are Ke- vin's outstanding subjects WILFRED I. OLSON Wilfred is commonly known as, "Bud". Laboratory ex- periments are of particular concern to him due to his skill in science. His election as class secretary proved the es- teem of the Senior boys.

R.N. OUR SCHOOL NURSE OR years the health program in our Catholic schools had been carried on by the Community and State nurses. A program of immunization against diphtheria, tuber- culin tests, dental inspection, and other health protection was established. Our be- loved teachers had always been ready to give first aid for our temporary aches and pains. The need of a permanent school nurse was realized and from 1939 to 1943 Sister M. Benigna, O.S.B., capably filled the position. In 1944 Miss Fritz, R.N., was appointed. She is small in stature but this is not a handicap to her work for we can see her daily going about her duties at the three schools, trying to keep in touch with all. She has a cheerful greeting for all she meets. We have come to rely on her not only for first aid, but also for answers to questions that bother us. We all wish to express our thanks for her services and hope she will continue her fine work in the years to come. Ruth Fritz. .-,i. MY MOTHER My mothers hands are cool and kind, Her eyes are bright with laughter, They stroke my fevered face, Then dark with sorrow, too. They smooth the pillow, soothe the pain They sober when she's scolding tic, With sweetness and with grace. They beg me to be true, My mother's hands are beautiful, The strife of homely living Fair with a mother's love. May cause her youth to fade, The joy they give is given me But to me her eyes: glow brighter By Tender Hands above. Than the stars that God has made. l'rn sure He specially carved her lips To be so smooth and warm, So solemn in prayer, constant in faith, Possessed with a definite charm. Would I dare question His judgment? I'm sure He meant to be iair:-- But when God gave me my mother, He gave me more than my share!

Now as we gaze on the vic- tory that is ours, we also revert to the past. We pause to pick up the book contain- ing our trials and joys, the history of our school life. Each grade successfully completed is a chapter and so we open the cover and eagerly read adventures which follow. On our first memorable day in school we stood on the threshold of a new life. Our baby hearts were filled with excitement and anxiety as we grasped our mother's hand and gazed at all the little girls around us. Kind Sister Ioan soon took us in hand and quieted all our fears. Gradually we became accustomed to school life and anxiously looked forward to the pleasures it brought-plays, parties and unexpected free days. Our first Holy Communion dominated our interests in the second grade. The mem- ories of the flower bedecked sanctuary, the arch leading to it and the unexpressable joy of receiving our dear Lord for the first time are treasures to be cherished more and more as the years roll by. The third grade passed quickly and with the fourth came the opportunity to sing in the Sacred Heart Choir. This privilege has continued until now and we shall ever be thankful for this opportunity to partake in the impressive ceremonies of the Church, espe- cially Corpus Christi, Midnight Mass, Palm Sunday and First Masses. In the fifth grade, much of our time was spent in practicing for an operetta, "The Fairy Shoemaker". This afforded us much enjoyment and diversion during the school months. During the sixth and seventh grades, the most memorable event was the reception of Confirmation which made us soldiers of Christ. The eighth grade brought many extra-curricular activities. Several members of our class had principal parts in an operetta, "The Christmas Bazaar", sponsored by Father David. In this operetta we were fairies, orphans or carolers as the parts demanded. Then came graduation from eighth grade. We chose blue and white as our colors and received blue and gold pins. On the last First Friday before School adjourned, we received Com- munion and were dressed in white, wearing wreaths of orange blossoms. After Mass, we were served breakfast and were presented our diplomas: thus ended our elementary edu- cation. The next fall we entered high school. What a surprise to hear a bell ringing every forty-five minutes for the change of classes and how difficult it was to become accustomed to the ever-changing schedule of high school life. We enjoyed the assemblies, dances and basketball games, so different from grade school activities and felt honored to participate in the Dedication to the Sacred Heart and in preparation of the annual May Altar. With relief, We entered the Sophomore class knowing that we would not be annoyed by the name, "f-'reshies", but could now use it for the incoming class. New subiects, such as Biology and Geometry, held our interest and that year the new and absorbing sport of volleyball was introduced. In the eleventh grade, we definitely chose our courses and realized that this decision would influence our vocation in life. We were given instructions and had much enjoy- ment in learning a useful art, cooking. Finally we were Seniors! But the feeling of exultation was blended with a feeling of regret as we realized that this was our last year in high school. The selection of our mot- to, pennants and familiar green and gold hats, and finally, the preparation of the year book articles received due attention. Now there remains only the commencement program and final adieus, Our history is completed and when we lay it aside the memories of "our golden school days" will live in our hearts until the end of our days.

To our Blessed Mother Mary, whose intercession has never yet been known to fail in time of distress, we offer thanks from our inmost hearts. We trust she will continue to be our unfailing guide and helper in time of need. Many are the thanks we owe to our armed forces who have gladly given their lives that we might enjoy the freedom which is now ours. Let us welcome them home with open arms, and step aside to give them place in our working centers and social activities. Let us also show respect and reverence to those mothers who have given their sons, that we may enjoy freedom and peace, security from harm, liberty and justice for all. To us, these privileges, regarded as the American Dream, represent the hope of the world, and the chance of fulfillment for the hunger that lies in every man's heart, that we may be at peace with our neighbor and derive the benefits of a true democracy. With grateful hearts we think of God's anointed, the chaplains, who brought spiritual comfort and solace to the discouraged and sick of soul. To the doctors and nurses who lessened the pains of our loved ones in the hospitals, who brought comfort and strength to the sick and the wounded, we are greatly indebted. A word of appreciation is also due to the women who so nobly did their part in the various branches of service. We can show our gratitude to God by using the means we have at our disposal to mend our ways, to live as He lived upon earth, with love for fellow men and charity toward all, Elizabeth Marconi. -lgi. TO OUR PARENTS When things seem darkest and you nearly despair, You turn to your parents who really do care. They help you, they guide you, from baby to man, And you should repay them with love-all you can. When you are in sorrow or when you have cheer, They are the ones that always are near. The good Lord has sent them to you from above To guide and protect you and give you their love. There are times when you think that they are too stern, But later you find 'twas a lesson to learn. You're alad then you did what they had advised And you're fully aware of the gain realized. So listen, take heed to all that they say, And surely you'll be in Heaven some day. And when they have gone to their Maker above, 'Tis glad you will be that you gave them your love.

That day will, we are sure, live in the minds of all of us. Never before had we seen, at one time, so many boys of our own age, and for a while we felt rather shy, But gradually this shyness left us as we realized the other boys were just as frightened as we were. Our second year came in an overwhelmingly short time and then we ran to school pleased with the thought of being second graders and not any longer the youngest and dullest in the school. But now, much to our surprise, we found school slightly monotonous. The novelty had worn off. However, one of the things that pleased us very much in this grade was the receiving of our First Holy Communion, Senior Sharpshooters As the years went by the work became increasingly difficult, but somehow we made it. One of our greatest joys in these years was the fact that we were to be confirmed, Our first day in high school was probably as exciting and bewildering as our first day in grade school. We were so enthused and eager to take up our new studies, we could hardly talk. New subjects were taught us in an entirely different way. Instead of just one teacher, we now had a different one for each subject. Our biggest Freshman thrill was hearing the bell ring every forty-five minutes for the change of classes. Although confused at first, after a few days we became accustomed to our schedule. The subjects 38 svttgwgtwt-.,m-g1'ff,llE11YlElYI.Q.11935 3 X X r d -H 3 Y 3 N 3 -A X 3 3 Sit -H 3 3 3 5 1 "5 3 3 1 Yg f m vrf which we were taught were entirely different and more difficult than any experienced before. Of these, the foreign languages generally proved the most difficult. With the exception of a few new subjects, the next year was much the same as ninth grade. Biology was our most interesting subject that year, and none of us will ever for- get the day we disected our first frog. ln the spring of this year we ordered our class rings which were not delivered until we became Iuniors. The receiving of their rings unfolded to us, as it were, our Iunior year, which proved to be the most difficult by far. After possessing the rings we really felt like veterans. That year, we attended our first Prom which was really an unforgetable experience. Finally, the big day came when we felt honored, being the seniors of the school. It was quite a feeling to know we were the oldest and supposedly the wisest in the school. This year was spent, in addition to our subjects, busily printing the "Ides", getting ma- terial for the yearbook, and last, but not least, preparing for graduation itself. As we leave, without doubt, there will be many times when we shall wish that we were in school again with all our chums, all of whom helped make our school years the most pleasant years of our life. We know that as a group we have developed an ever- lasting friendship which we have all come to cherish as one of the most important assets we may ever hope to possess. Robert Schlimm Harry Bauer. .igl TI-IE ATOMIC BOMB OF THE CHURCH RAYER is the atomic bomb of the Church, No attempt at comparison can be made between prayer and the actual atomic bomb. The effect of the former vastly exceeds the gigantic power of the latter. Like the split atom of uranium, prayer can and does comfort and even cure the sick, both physically and spiritually. Both the newly discovered atomic power and prayer play an important part in the daily life of the modern man. To the atomic bomb we owe by-products such as a substitute for radium in the control ol cancer, new methods of chemical analysis for rare gases and elements, and two new elements, Plutonium and Neptunium. To prayer we owe the lives of many American boys. lt is a well-known fact that many boys who are living normal happy lives today, would not have escaped the perils of war but for the many heart-felt prayers of their relatives and friends. It is the greatest hope of the people of all nations that no occasion will ever arise when the atomic bomb, the deadliest and most fearful of all weapons, will have to be used. Prayer, the kindliest of all weapons, need not be feared by anyone, moreover, it can be employed as an unfailing means to prevent the unjust use of the greatest of all scientific discoveries.

While there I visited the Indianapolis Speedway and to my surprise Paul Rettger had just set a new world record in his wheelless drive. Since my autoplane was not repaired, Paul offered to take me on a cruise to Cleveland. We arrived ten minutes later and, after transacting my business, we went out to Municipal Stadium where Cleveland was playing New York. Lefty Bauer, who had not given up a hit for the last twenty-seven games, was on the mound for Cleveland and as usual pitched no-hit ball but slipped up and issued one walk, his first for the season, In the box in front of us was Donald Klaiber, Secretary of the New York Yankees. After chatting about old times, we went together to a popular drug store for vitamin pills which were invented by the scientist, Francis Schneider, Ph.D., MD. Having my autoplane shiped by sub-car, I flew to Paris in order to open up stands in that commercial city. But I decided that first I would attdnd the checker tournament 41 The MEMO-1946 -sw which was to determine the world's champion. When I arrived, I was happy to find that my well-known classmate took part in the tournament. To my surprise he won the championship by jumping all his opponent's men with one man left. Keller and I then journeyed to London where we stopped and looked up Robert Schlimm, a retired game hunter. He joined us for a walk around the sky-lane and we three stopped to see William Murray, President of the World-Wide Television Company. We spent a few hours together and with much sorrow I left my friends but business beckoned. I headed by means of transportation toward France, and as I got out of my vehicle near the Eiffel Tower, I heard the most beautiful music in the world. I investigated its source and found Wilfred Olson, Count of Iazz, playing on his newly patented Saxnet, leading an orchestra of 100 men bers. We went to the Monte Carlo Casino, where William Carino was setting the world aflame with his torch songs. Near the Roulette tables was a society playboy, Robert Wickett, who had just won a series of games. We had supper and I left for my car, but on the way I noticed a man trimming a window in a ladies' salon. I at once recognized him as Kenneth Hepner, the creator of all the women's fashions. We reminisced about school days, but I had to leave in order to arrive in Naples in ten and a half minutes. I went to the Embassy building and found Paul Schaut just finishing his most famous painting, "Daehkroc". He told me that Iames Meyer was running a photograph studio, so being at leisure, I went to his studio and had my picture taken. At the studio, to my delight, I met Dr. Lavern Dippold who had been teaching the "Mole Men" the Braille system. Iames, Lavern and I went to a nearby restaurant to have a little visit. I then set out for Prohibistan. While travel- ing across the desert in my plane I saw a huge sign protruding over a small oasis. On it was written, "The Coolest Drinks Popular in Prohibistan". I landed on the ultra-modern field only to find Willis Smith who now was running a huge restaurant. Beneath his cafe was a Bowling Alley ruled over by the world famous bowler, Kevin Nolan, who came to greet us after he had just bowled his 999th perfect game. He told me of his plans to build a newly invented "Curve Alley". I left Kevin with a light heart after being assured that he would make sales for me. I then decided to leave for japan where the country had just been blown up, due to atomic action caused twenty years ago. I went to the Provost General's Office and found my old schoolmate, I-larry Bauer, now commanding officer of Iapan and in charge of all Amer- ican troops there. He told me that three other classmates were in charge of reconstruc- tion plans there. He sent out a communique asking them to come and when we all met I found that Donald Meier was in charge of the carpenter work, also that he had just per- fected a new termite-proof wood with which he was building all the new houses. Charles Ambuske was the electrical engineer assisted by Francis Schatz, who had just won an award for promoting better machinery. After a month's sojourn I left for America by way of the new Steamer Lines. The captain of the ship was Edward Meyer. After spending a pleasant twenty minutes together, we arrived in the United States where we learned that Isadore Friedl had just been elected governor of California and was seriously considering running for president in 1968. I decided to stop in Montana to see William Wickett who had just invented an automatic tomato cooker. I returned to Chicago with high hopes and a jubilant heart to resume business after a happy year of travel.

MARYS PARISH Listen, my friends, and you shall hear The story of our school career. 'T,was early September in '34 When we made our way to the grade-school door. And each was filled with a secret fear. A very kind Sister welcomed us all And talked to our Mothers about this and that, As she led us through the long dark hall To a little room where we had our first chat. "What is your name? How old are you? Where do you live? What can you do?" Questions answered, we were told to go To one of the seats arranged in a row. How many there were we did not know. The days sped by and soon we knew Our A, B, C's and numbers, too. And then, at last, there came the day When we took part in a little play, Dressed in aprons of brightest blue Looking like many wash-women do We sang our song correctly through, Then excitedly retreated Wholly glad our part was completed. In early spring fthe very same yearj Sister Anastasia's Golden Iubilee Was an event that filled us with gleep In dresses of white and crowns of gold Before the altar we rejoiced to appear And knelt there very reverently Praying to God for our teacher old. When we were seven, in the next grade The greatest joy of life we claimed. The fire of love within us flamed When we, our first Communion, made, The Sacred Body and Blood of Our Lord We received at the Altar Board. Filled with peace and joy we made our way Back to our homes that early Iune day. Our faces reflected the wonder and awe Which we had felt when the Holy Law Before our young minds open lay. Time marched on and knowledge we gained, Through history books and geographies We flew to the distant Pyrenees And fought in the Battle of the Spanish Main. Fractions and decimals to us were new, Palmer Method, English and poetry, too: Within a short time we mastered them well- Learned how to read, also to spell. Five years of our school-life were spent "The tree often grows as the twig is bent," ln teaching us the right things to do. When twelve, soldiers of Christ we became Promising to die for His Holy Name: The Holy Ghost upon us descended As the Reverend Bishop his hands extended. Enlightened and strengthened by the Holy Ghost We were prepared to take our post As sentinels in a world so discontented. Our Holy Faith must be defendedl "Con of Misty Mountain" was the name Of the magnificent play that to us came, In seventh grade when the curtain ascended On actors whose performance was splendid. In arithmetic we also had tests Between boys and girls to see who were bestg Correctness and speed-both were needed But woe for us, the boys succeeded. In eighth grade we read of Evangeline, Who wandered through forests of hemlock and pine We had a Christmas play with Shepherds and Kings The Christ Child, His Mother, and angels with wings. In May we crowned our Queen, Mother Mary, And each day to the altar we'd carry The little prayer-gifts we offered to her ln place of gifts of incense and myrrh. The following autumn, excited and proud We entered "Central" and met a new crowd, Everything was so strange and new- Shifting of periods and the name "Freshie" too, Intriguing studies and work to be done The Crusade, assemblies and the basketball games Which to our school have brought great fame. The clubs and activities that added to fun Are far too many to enumerate here But, in the "Book of Memories"--have no fear- ln large golden letters they will appear. To the Sophomore room when on we passed We were introduced to Geometry What Nyberg saw in it, we couldn't see. New studies also were Biology And histories through which we learned of the past. Volleyball was added to activities that year And was welcomed by the girls with joy and cheer. The following year we received our class rings And tasted the joy that this event brings To students each year, as time marches on ln future years and through years that are gone. The Iunior Prom was an exciting eventg Much time in preparation was spent- Refreshments, music, decoration of the hall And choosing of gowns: for our first great ball. At last that much desired name was attained, "Seniors of Central Catholic High". Suddenly we realized how years had sped by And we'd reached the goal for which we had aimed. This year was filled with new things to do- Selections of colors of very bright hue. Sweaters and hats for everyone Pennants and emblems and pictures, too. Basketball games which must be won, Work on the "Memo" to be done, Intermingled was our work and our fun. As graduation day drew near Our minds were filled with visions Cleary We saw the success that would be ours The joys, the sorrows, the happiness, strife Which we would meet in the school of life. The history of school, in the last few' hours Was well remembered ere we bid good-bye To our Alma Mater, to our Central High.

During the first years of our membership, we were under the capable direction of Sister M. Cyrilla, OSB., during which time we participated in a radio broadcast over WCED in Dubois, Father Raymond, who won life- long friends in his short stay here, followed as our director. Under his guidance, the mem- bers of the Choir produced two very successful operettas. At the present time, our directress is Sister Mary Edward, OSB., who is also directing the senior chorus in preparation for graduation. Some of our duties in the choir were to sing for funerals, weddings, processions and for the dedication of the new St. Benedicts Church in Daguscahonda, Patricia Puncheon Dorothy Hammer. 45 The MEMO-1946 -we .. ,ffm ..... ....... s.E..as. .cs .FEE 'riff' Rolling Hills, St. Marys. GIRLS' PROPHECY N Iune l, 1956, the morning sunbeams danced on the pages ot a multitude of city telephone directories. l was industriously paging through them while my friend Rita was busily telephoning. "Pittsburgh St. Marys go ahead, please." "Hella ls this the Bauer and Puncheon Interior Decorator Shoppe? - Are either of the managers in the office? - May I speak to Miss Puncheon, please?- 'Patty', this is Rita. The class of '46 are holding a reunion Iune 10, in the basement of C. H. S. Do you think you and Ann can leave your shop for a few days and come? - And will it be possible for you to see Martha Zimmett in the dress designing department at the OH-RIG-INAL store? - Thanks! See you then." "Well, Rita, that takes care of Ann, Patty, and Martha and I have already sent invit- tions to Delores Brennan, Lillian Gregory, Faith Herzing, Iean Hoffman and Eleda Kraus, who are all affiliated with the Up-Sweep, Down-Sweep, Every-Sweep Beauty Shop located at San Francisco, California." "Did you receive an invitation to Freda Young's wedding? She's going to marry that handsome Doctor Splicem, whom she met While working at the Ubreakem-Wefixem Hos- pital in New York. Ruth Fritz, who also Works there, is going to be her maid of honor. The bridesmaids will be Audrey Heary, Head Dietician at the hospital and Alice Lecker who is resting there before starting her lecture tour on Current Aviation. Dorothy Weg- emer and Dorothy Hammer, both Air Line Hostesses and Rita Frank, one of those pleasant New York Air Line receptionists, will accompany Alice Lecker and speak of the oppor- tunities open for girls in air careers. They will return to St. Marys. When l asked Freda to come for the reunion, she said she would be here and would ask the other girls." 46 wgw W' Th.s.-.E.1!1Q. 119.46 x s x x- - -m-x-x-x-x- x-w- x-x-x-x-w-x- -s-1-i-x-x-m x-1- i-i-i-w-w- -w- -X-S H "Well, now that everyone has been invited I shall see you when we decorate." "We shall have many girls to help us," replied Rita. Iune 9, found Ieanne Schauer, Alice Wittman, "Dotty" Seeyle, Mary Schlimm and Rita Wortman also myself busily decorating the C. H. S. basement. "Say, Ieanne, are you and "Dotty" going to the State Teachers' Conference at Phila- delphia? Ieanne, are you going to teach there again this year?' I asked. "I am," replied Ieanne. "Dotty" has been advanced and is to be the supervisor of all kindergarten schools at Philadelphia so she will not teach this year." "Why were you so silent, 'Dotty'? You have really made strides since ten years ago, have you not? Hand me that green stripe of paper, please. Ieanne, are you still teaching bookkeeping and typing?" "Yes, and Ioan are you going to teach English again?" "Yes. Say, Rita, I heard you and Mary are going to be part owners at the Western Union Office." "Yes, we have been advancing since we started there and have saved enough money to make an investment in it." "Well, that's wonderful. Iust think, Ieanne, you and I are still poor teachers. 'Dotty' hand me that last strip of gold paper, and I think the decorating is completed." "Look, who are comingl Eleen Smith and lane Hoffman," exclaimed 'Witty'." "Hello, girls." Eleen and Iane greeted us. "Now, they have come just because we are all through working. Well, isn't that just like you two," was 'Dotty's' reply. "Oh, come now, girls. We just came to show you this painting which we made from an old class picture," Eleen exclaimed. And, sure enough, there was a beautiful painting of our entire class which they had reproduced, using an old picture. With exclamations of awe, we gazed upon it. Finally someone asked Eleen and Iane: "Are you two still working for The We R. Painters Shop in Chicago?" "Oh, we are the owners now. We purchased the Shop last year," Eleen replied. "Well, now we know who can paint our pictures," Ieanne stated. "Let's put the picture in a prominent place where everyone can see it," Rita sug- gested. "Good idea," we all agreed. "And now, we're all ready for the party," Betty declared. The evening of Iune IU came none too soon. The first members of the 1946 class to arrive were the famous scientists, Ruth Decker and Dolores Friedl, employees of the Ivy 47 T3 MEMQ-1946 -M 3 3 3'5 5 5 5 , , ,, , ' , 5 , ,, W Poison Laboratories who had found a cure for infantile paralysis and were now working on a cure for cancer. Following closely was the well-known commercial group: Marie Wolfel, Dolores Herz ing, and Martha Snyderg and Mary Hacherl, manager of the office force, all of whom worked for the firm Smirk, Smirk, Smirk, Ir. Grin, manufacturers of a large variety of novelties. Then three of the Detroit society folk came Wandering in. They were Eileen Case- man, the wife of Admiral Arthur Wendelg Doris Detsch, the wife of Commodore George Singerg Mary Braun, the Wife of The Duke of Oysterland. The Duchess had been chosen as one of the "Ten Best Dressed Women" in the United States. As we were about to give up hope, Florence Kline and Alice Wittman arrived express- ing their regrets for being late. Florence has been working with the world famous dentist, Doctor O'Teeth. ' Music was furnished by the New York Orchestra, "The Melodious Moments", whose star attraction was Mary Ann Schaut. Grace Kronenwetter, who had just completed a successful season in the opera, "La Traciata", graced the audience with the hymn, "Ave Maria", while Virginia Liebel accompanied her. 'Ginny' had just closed the doors of her Chopsticks Music Conservatory in Cleveland for the summer. The pleasure we derived from being thus united helped somewhat to lessen the effects of the disappointments and annoyances that are bound to enter into one's life as one toils throughout the day, intent upon earning a livelihood, After this reunion we all felt we could resume our present duties with lighter hearts.

INCE the close of the greatest war in the history of the world, our nation like many others has been thrown into a constant state of turmoil. It seems that we cannot reach any agreements concerning World Peace or what should be done with the atomic bomb. Every country wants to follow its own selfish ways and will not give in or even compromise with other nations. This selfishness may, before long, throw us headlong into another war. Another war, following so closely World War II would prove disastrous to countless American students. These boys have had their high school and college careers interrupted by one war, and now that they have, with quite some difficulty, started anew, they could not possibly afford to have anything interfere with their educational training again. What must America do if she wants to prosper and live in peace? There are so many issues we must face in the future that it seems we are confronted with an almost hopeless task. First, there must be some organization which has the power and authority to force some of the aggressor nations to give up their selfish motives and work for cooperation among all the nations of the world. If this is not done, only war can result, and scientists tell us the next war will be the last. Then too, we must strive to bring about better relations between the different groups in our own country. Strikes, just or unjust, nevertheless, keep America from becoming as prosperous as it should be. There are also those anti-religious parties who are trying to turn the democratic United States into a communistic nation. If this happens we may as well ,as the old saying goes, "Dig a hole and bury ourselves." The world is crying out to the graduating classes of 1946 all over the country, to keep religion alive, to help avoid any future wars and to make this cr bigger and a better world in which to live. William Murray, +L APPRECIATION OF THE WOODLAND OME is really a grand place, and school, well, it isn't too bad, but what every red- blooded American boy can truthfully enjoy is a day strolling about the amphitheater of Mother Nature's tranquil surroundings. I have in mind the elongated weeds of the forest, or as we infants term them--trees. The trees that compass our global woodlands form a very essential part of our lives. The fruits they bear, along with the lumber yielded from the shorn oak, are much in de- mand at present and this is proof enough oflthe value of trees. Words can not express the importance of trees, and the individual can never learn to appreciate them without really living amidst them and enjoying their scenic grandeur in addition to their enchanting perfumes which permeate the air. To all who find St. Marys dull and lacking in amusement, I advise, as an afternoon's entertainment, a sojourn in any of our local Museums of Natural Art, so they can enjoy for themselves and feast their eyes upon the inexpensive beauties which God has provided for them. Francis A. Schneider. 1,1 SILENT INFLUENCES . ORE tired than usual on March 23, I retired. at the early hour of 7 P. M. Within five minutes I fell asleep and probably would have slept till the alarm went off if I had not been suddenly awakened by some unconscious power. When I found my- self awake. I sat up in bed, and looking out of the window I saw something I had never beheld before, I saw the Northern Lights flickering through my window with a brightness almost as great as that of the sun. The moon was full and the sky was filled with big bright stars, all of which added to the brilliance of the sky. I don't know exactly when the Northern Lights appeared or exactly when they disappeared because I watched them only about fifteen minutes. It was the most mystifying feeling I had ever felt and within those fifteen minutes I made up my mind that I would learn all I could about the marvels of the sky, perhaps even become an astronomer. However, with the coming dawn this thought vanished from my mind, but the impression that the Northern Lights made upon me, I think will never leave. It is the sun, the moon, the stars and many other objects that imprint on us the wonderful mystery of life. It is these silent influences that prove to us, without a doubt, that there is a God Who in His Providence made everything perfect.

Today, World Peace is a common topic of conversation. It is being planned by some of the most educated and well-informed men and women of the world. Christ's moral principles and doctrines can be the guiding light which will give strength to ward off the brutal and violent warfare which we have just seen, and thus the greatest obstacle will be overcome. We already feel the liberty and happiness of peace even though many of the wartime conditions still exist. - Europe is in a turmoil but everyone is doing his best to remedy existing conditions. America, too, feels the burden of war and of reconstruction, but, with the thought of World Peace predominant in her mind, she is striving earnestly to attain it. In our daily life, when one attempt proves unsatisfactory, we try something different. Well, surely the leaders of our diplomatic life realize that war is an obsolete means of set- tling their troubles. They, too must seek a different solution. At present, the country is quite unsettled, due to differences of opinion between the capitalist and the laborer. However, we hope this condition will be removed within a very short time. Various plans are now under consideration by the government to arbi- trate these matters successfully. If people will not blind themselves to the fact that mankind will never live in perfect harmony until the Divine teachings of Christ are recognized as the wisest form of laws ever written, not only by a few Christian countries, but by the whole world, we will truly have experienced the effects of our last World War. Let people everywhere do what their hearts tell them to do-return to God and to His simple teachings. Dolores Herzing and Florence Kline. PRAYER P it were convenient for m.e to take you into the home of a service man who has re- cently returned from overseas duty, it would be much easier for me to explain clearly the result of our dailv prayers. Since this is impossible, I will try to tell you my idea of prayer and its reward. To me it seems that there are no truer words than those of Ten- nyson's, "More Things Are Wrought by Prayer Than This World Dreams of." During the war many mothers with aching hearts, prayed faithfully for the safety and return of their dear ones in service. They have received their answer from God-The war has ended. The more fortunate mothers have had ioyful reunions with their sons. These boys are now beginning where they left off in their interrupted life. But what about our basketball star of the 1939 team? He has not returned and never will return. What kind of an answer to prayer is that? Why is it that good boys are snatched from their happy homes? Our minds are so small that we can not begin to con- ceive why God in His goodness permitted that. But if we would put some serious thought to this cfuestion we, as Christians, would realize that the boys who lost their lives in the war have actually begun to live. Instead of being enrolled in a University, as this boy had planned to do at the end of the war, he is now or has been enrolled in the University of Heaven. Prayer can not bring back your loved ones but it can help your son, your brother, or your father reach his eternal goal-Heaven-the place of peace and contentment. Continue your prayers faithfully for that is the only consolation in your earthly trials. Above all, do not cease praying for those who died in service. They are depending upon your prayers, please do not keep them waiting. Rita Frank. 50 yt on al N ' Q nr 4 ...Agar I2 ,,,,. .. ,V , K www! Dazed by the Snow 51 ., N.

It is a day on which a great ceremony takes place, the re- newal of our dedication to the Sacred Heart. It has been a tradition of our school to have the Senior boys erect the altar where the dedication takes place. This year the boys worked hard in order to erect a very beautiful altar. A background of white with scattered myrtle and sprays of hemlock was used to bring out the design of the altar. Greens and ferns with some hemlock made up the car- pet. The Senior girls bought chrysanthemums and other greenhouse flowers to adorn the altar. The dedication itself consisted of hymns, act of consecration to and Litany of the Sacred Heart.This was followed by an appropriate exhortation by the Very Reverend Father Tim- othy, O.S.B., urging the students to promote devotion to the Sacred Heart. Iames Meyer. l,?.

THE NATIONAL THESPIAN SOCIETY LANS were made to join the National Thespian Dramatic Honor Society in several dis- cussions of the club in the early part of the year. This is a nation-wide organization of teachers and students devoted to the advancement of dramatic arts in secondary schools. lts program and services are de-signeld to assist the school in establishing and maintaining the highest standards attainable in all phases of dramatic arts instruction and participation. For membership certain qualifications must be met according to a point system. The first students to meet these requirements are known as the Charter Members and have the privilege of signing the Charter. First to become Thespian members are the following: Dor othy Mae Briendel, Delores Brennan, Eileen Caseman, Richard Dornisch, Mary Theresa Dornisch, Donald Friedl, Faith Herzing, Ioan Kraus, Mary Kuntz, Mary Reuscher, Ioan Ri- gard, Anita lean Meagher, lris Sherry, loan Straub. The formal initiation took place on lanuary 29 before an audience of the Seniors and Iuniors. The understudies appeared in formal dress. They were informed of the grave task given them when they enrolled in the Society. Their cualifications were read by the Sec- retary of the Ceremony, Kathleen Yetzer, and a very impressive program was carried out explaining the history and insignia of the Society. Then all arose and took the pledge of membership. After a brief address by the Sponsor, Sister M. Anita, O.S.B., they were pre- sented with membership cards, seals and certificates. The seals will be affixed to their graduating diploma. With a Word of congratulation and a Wish for the future, the curtain closed on the first and, indeed, on the most beautiful enactment in the history of dramatics in our school. 64 rw 1 71 tg' '-"f 'in T .' .

Membership has risen to such a high proportion that our dra- matics moderator, Sister M. Anita, OSB., found great difficulty in selecting actors and actresses from the many possible entertainers. Indeed, the year l945-l946 has shown gratifying results in the theatrical field. "The Platinum Blond" ushered in the l945-46 season. At this entertainment, which took place on November Zl, lean Straub explained its purpose which was to honor Sister M lsabels Nameday, In her address Miss Straub touched upon the life of St. lflizabeth and :stressed the point that all should know the Saints example in good work.: and charity Then followed the One Act Play.

Central had one of its best seasons this year, losing only two games, winning twenty-two. The Crusaders started practice early in October with only two regulars left from the preceding year. They were "Sam" Nissel and Allan Mulcahy. After much practice Coach Goetz selected as his regulars for the initial team: "Sam" Nissell as center, Iames Schlimm and "Tommy" Bauer as forwards, and Ralph Lanzel and Allan Mulcahy to hold down the guard positions. Appreciation should be shown "Tommy" Bauer, who played good ba11,but who was laid up by pneumonia and could not play the latter half of the season. His place was filled by the hard fighting "Ike" Friedl. Some of the exciting games of the year were those played with Erie Prep, Kane Public High, and Public High of St. Marys. Central lost their first game to Kane by one point and their second game of the season to Prep by only two points. But Central defeated both of these teams badly on the Crusaders' home floor. Both games between the two local schools were packed with the rooters of both teams. Central High bids farewell to those players who will not be with the team next year, they are: first string, Ralph Lanzel, and "Ike" Friedl, and second string, "Ed" Meyer, "Bud" Olson and "Don" Meier. Everyone wishes to thank Father Richard and Father Iames for all they did toward effecting this year's success. They also wish to thank Coach lim Goetz for his effort and time spent with the squad so they could become more successful than ever. The Cheerleaders, with the cooperation of the student body, did a splendid job of cheering this year. To them and to all others who worked with the team: in any way, we also wish to express thanks.

The season started in the early weeks of November with seventy-seven girls participating. They were divided into eight teams: Bamhies, Bobbysockers, Dynamos, Koketts, Red Fathers, Solid Senders, Wolv- erines, and Worryworts. The league started on November 28, the games being played every Wednesday and Friday at three o'clock. The games were skillfully played under the careful supervision of Father Iames and, at times, were quite exciting. When the league ended we found that the Bobbysockers came out on top by winning twelve games out of thirteen, being closely followed by the Koketts, who won eleven of their thirteen games. We congratulate you, Bobbysockersl You did a fine job. No sooner had the league games been completed when the teams were chosen for the class tournament which was held on the evening of March 26. Each team played three games and the Iunior class of l945-1946 won all three of their games making them cham- pions and full possessors of the Keystone Trophy, having won the class tournament for three successive years. This team showed fine ability, alertness and cooperation which enabled them to come out on top. Congratulations!

How free and easy they lightly sail, How safe they go winging high, How graceful thou art-oh, bird of God, We watch the wild geese fly. Had I your wings and carefree view I would sit not here and sigh, But be aloft with thee, great bird, The geese and I would fly. When morning dawns above the hills, When we pause and peer at the sky, When we pass through the days of want and cares We see the wild geese moving by. When the sun sinks low at twilight And we beneath are sprawling, We know without our waiting The geese of God are calling.
