Thus the stutlents become aapiainted with points of ietv other than the strictly academic— the relation of science to industry, medicine, and other kindred fields. Far from being restricted to text-book knowledge in her own field, the chdr member is impressed with the orderly secjuence of principles and applications, and most of all with the unity that underlies the variety of specialties of modern science.

Seniors, garbed in the dignitv of black and white, carried pleas for peace to beat en, the . ve Maria of each greet- ing mingling with the Pater Noster of submis- sion. SURROUNDED BY a living cross of Elmites, Seniors form a living rosary offering their prayers to counteract Communist May Day parades. Marguerite Mulvey Is choirmon of the event.

PROUD RELATIVES and friends throng the ouditorium as black-gowned Seniors step triumphontly, and o bit sadly, down the familiar halls for the last time. Commencement This fleeting scene of happiness but briefly halted elusive time ' s relentless marth: Commencement, the end and the begin- ning, setting the stage lor the greatest act of all, the act of finality. 1 he stage of college ears had furnished the preparation of four jtreliminary acts: each daily scene, a skillful bit of foreshaclocving from the Dicine Dramatist ' s all-knocving pen, moving the action fortvard to the suspenseful climax of .Senior Year. Ingenues tvere tianslormed to seasoned actresses; nothing cvas left unchanged as its broad scope swept boldly on. ’e can be certain of only one thing, that we will all emerge at the final curtain very different from what eve cvere at the beginning.

Sunshine for growth was supplied by the Junior Prom, step sings, dorm Christ- mas parties, plays, and concerts. We were thus nurtured by our Alma Mater, and soon our first stage of growth was over. In September, 1956, braving the foreign elements, as the rose withstands the snows and blasts of winter, we SPORTING THE GYM-SUIT green are Frosh Year team captains (first row) Jean Dris- coll, Kathy Fenton, Barbara Letourneau, Janis Wise, (second row) Jane Shea, Patty Dowd, Ruth Zecchi, and Moe Enright. OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS at COLE found every heart proud of being collegiate. wished our green and gold Tourmalines on our trembling fingers and wished themselves into our hearts forever. I ' hat year we took a trip to the sunny southern world of Tara, where roses abound, aiul there found “Our Own True Love” in our Junior Prom. ■September, 1958, saw the bud, now a comely flower, mature ami stiong, but pricked by its first real thorn, the striking realization of the fleeting march of time. On Cap and Gown Sunday, we donned our black aca- demic robes, symbols of achievement and full growth. And then we started our series of “lasts,” our last classes, long week-ends, weekly assemblies, our last retreat, the Prom, Mary’s Day, and finally, the Senior Ball. The well- worn routine was tempered with an increasing awareness of the cidmination of the rose’s life— the culmination and yet the beginning. FIFTY-NINER CONTRIBUTION to the Commencement step-sing competition is always loud if not the epitome of euphony. secretly gatheicd our still limited strength in preparation for the Soph Show. The warm rays of autumn’s Indian Summer shone on that night when we leauied that ” riiere’s No Business Like Show Business,” and we proiully slipped into our white jackets to sing our class song for the first time. sudden drought, however, fell u|jou the young rose of 1959 with our iutroduction to jjhilosophy, but a cool pleasing rainfall eventually sohetl most of our philosophical problems. Basking in the soothing summer sunlight of Parents Day, joint Glee Club concerts, our first March Gras, the Fashicrn Show, and the Spring Formal, we moved rapidly onward and discovered that the delicate blosscjin was about to unfold. By Septendter, 1957, we had strength enough to sup- port other huds, our little Freshman sisters, of whom we were tcj become so fond. Proudly, they lovingly heYiewiiijJ . . . he i II o AS JUNIORS we carry the traditional daisy choin; our last commencement as underclassmen. " THERE ' S NO BUSINESS Like Show Business! " Victory smiles testify to the success of our Soph Show as ' 59ers take their curtain call. The unity achieved proved to be a lasting spirit. UNDERCLASSES form an honor guard for Seniors wearing the block and white of seniority for the first time on Cap and Gown Sunday. And now, today, at these Class Day exercises, our ma- turity is almost complete. The rose, full grown in glori- ous beauty, is ready to be plucked from its native soil and transplanted to foreign soils, where it will adoin a new place, lending to it happiness, beaut , and joy. I ' he tinv bud has now become a lo ely being, formed and molded, a rose, with all its sweetest leaves unfolded. I ' he rose may die but it will still remain in the memories of all who saw it because of the new roses that will seed from it. May its fragrance reach out and permeate every corner with the rich perfume of its Catholic doctrine, its Catholic li ing, and its Catholic example. Lois M.

The day greia older— the road ran steeper. .1 wind blew the brightness out of the air. We fixed our eyes on the real firm ground Until we readied it. Our iioices were muffled in the silence there.
