Throughout the school year there is one diligent group of students who attain
prominence by the merits of their scholastic achievements. These pupils, the
Honor Students must have gained the Honor Roll for at least four of the first
five terms. The Honor Roll, in turn, is merited by those boys who maintain a
minimum of 85 percent in each of their subjects. Considering the requisites of
this organization, we feel that each and every member should be justly proud
of his standing.

The spiritual life of Menard revolves about its Sodality which is under the patronage of
the Immaculate Conception and of St. Francis Xavier. It was erected under that title by the
late Bishop Van de Ven on September 27, l927, and affiliated to the Prima Primaria in Rome
on October 26, of the same year. On December l l following, the first solemn reception of
members took place in the Cathedral with Rev. Father C. l. Nuedling, the Pastor and Spirit-
ual Director, officiating. Rev. Brother Edmund was the first Sodality Moderator.
K- Since its erection, the Sodality of Menard has directed the youthful zest of its members
to projects eminently Catholic and worthy of their efforts. The main objective of this organi-
zation is to imbue the students with a solid love and intelligent, practice of their Faith, the
prime reason for which they attend a Catholic school. Its projects and studies touch on all
the aspects and the various environments of student life. The group activities it advocates
tend to promote in the Sodalists a vital cooperative spirit which promises to make of them in,
later life dynamic units in parochial circles. Furthermore, during this year an intense, per-
sonal love of Christ has been insisted upon, through projects and religious activities proposed
for individual practice. This should be, indeed, the ultimate goal of all Sodality work, for by
it alone will our student organization be able to bloom forth, after graduation, in to fruits of
intense personal piety and earnest Catholic Action.
The Sodality Officers who have guided their companions during this year i943-44 in-
clude: Patrick McCauley, Prefect, Kenneth Broussard, Vice-Prefect, Robert Neblett, Secre-
tary, Kelly Betar, Treasurer.
Outstanding projects of this year have been: Month of the Rosary featuring the Living
Rosary, offering of Requiem Masses, with group attendance, for the repose of the souls of
Msgr. Menard, Menard boys fallen in service of their country, and of former Sodalists,
Catholic Press month featuring signed pledges of combatting indecent literature, the Len-
ten Daily Six, Vocational instructions, and Student Retreat.
