Truly these words express the role of the Diocesan Ordinaries who have the responsibility of choosing only those men whom Christ desires to work in His Vineyard. How great their task, how immense their responsibility, for they can choose only those young men who they feel will mature into perfected ideals of the Priesthood. Words, no matter of their depth or meaning, cannot express our gratitude to those Ordinaries from whose dioceses students have enrolled at the Orchard Lake Schools, where these young men may attain the knowledge, piety, and priestliness which are necessary of "another Christ."

This qual- ity found in individuals possessing determination and unlim- ited trust in God assures the Orchard Lake Schools of lead- ers who will uphold and guide the Institution. Such leaders are the members of the Board of Trustees, priests and lay- men motivated by a desire to realize the attainment of that Christian harmony which is characterized by a God-enlight- ened clergy and a well-informed Catholic laity. The graduate of Orchard Lake, they say, must be imbued with the spirit of the School and fortified with the intellectual and spiritual armour of the ideal priest and gentleman. Toward the reali- zation of this ideal they direct all their efforts. Watrizu Rozvcxr .gm His Eminence Enwmm Cimnxmt Moomzr Chairman Rt. Rev. Msgr.

From the abun- dance of their hearts have come many complimentary man- ifestations of their outstanding Christian Charity to the students of St. Mary's. Calling upon their natural tender- ness and understanding, these valiant self-sacrificing wom- en are able to perceive many of the specific needs of the students.

This assistance is directed to the support of the Orchard Lake Schools which today are proud to admit of their present stability as greatly due to those loyal efforts of the members of the Dabrowski Foundation. Many improvements effected in the Seminary, College and High School departments on the campus were directly made pos- sible by the organizationis financial contributions which have already cxceeded the sum total of one-hundred thousand dollars. The Dabrow- ski Foundation is a true assurance that the fondest dreams of its illustrious namesake will enjoy a most lasting realization. Rf-v. Francis Orlik, Executive Secrelary and Rt. Rev.

As a magnifying glass concentrates the rays of the sun into burning energy that can set ablaze a dry leaf or a piece of paper, so too can a con- centration of energy, human energy, set light and fire to the spirit of man. "The Friends of the Orchard Lake Seminary," founded and developed through the burning energy of a handful of fore- sighted men, concentrates the rays of the love of thousands, love for the furthering of vocations, love for Our Lady of Czestochowa and love for the lnstitution which promotes both, into a burning iridescent flame of aid, whether spiritual or tempo- ral. Already the flames have spread far and wide and have cmbraced tens of thousands of Catholics in forty-two states. H2 rd, THE SEMI AHY ,gg I' fr lx f" 1 W, Rr. Rav. Mscn. E.

In conformity with her main purpose, the Church directs her interests toward the sanctification of men in this world as a preparation for eternal happiness in the next. It is here in the care and guidance of the interests of the Church that the Catholic priesthood plays a very important role. Only after long years of diligent application does the young man aspiring to the priesthood enter upon the study of Theology. 5 I i .4 - "Z 15,52 .o. 5 gs.,-ffm s U.

MIIME TS TU REMEMBER LASKIPN I am the Clock on the Class Building . . . and I have a story to tell. My tale is one which concerns a group of young lads, men now, a group that has come to be especially dear to my heart. Perhaps my weather-beaten face may give no indication that I have a heart, but I do, and through all the years that I have marked the passage of time from my sentry post never have there been four years that have been more pleasant than those I ticked away through the hours, days, weeks and months for the Class of 1956. These boys caught my interest- and stole my affection. And I was so happy to be able to record for them so many "Moments to Remember." The story begins on September 4-, 1952, when another, ordinary, inexperienced group of young fellows arrived as Freshmen on my campus. They checked into Noah's Ark where Father John Gabalski was disciplinarian. On the next day, as I looked down from my position atop the class building, it seemed to me that this was just another group of "Freshies," or so I thought, as they came to the class building for the first time. That was why I was rather surprised when, by the time of the usual "Get Acquainted Partyf' a week later, they were getting along exceptionally well. But ssKR0vv what really opened my eyes were the many positions which they filled on the football team and the successful season which then followed. Football prevailed, all through those autumnal months, not only on the varsity gridiron, but also on the intramural field. Father Francis Orlik was appointed class master for the Freshmen class. And, as time went on, I came to realize that this class of Freshmen was no ordinary class. These were "my boys!" At the time of the Halloween Party, which turned out a big success, they were all well acquainted with campus life. Hikes around Orchard Lake and the colorful countryside took up many hours during the beautiful autumn months. With the coming of winter, basketball, the king of sports at Orchard Lake, found the Freshmen eager and waiting to do their part. That season saw many successful, well-played games. Not only did "my boys" do well with regard to points, but even more important, they came to know the value of. sportsmanship and fair play. Throughout those win- ter months they took an active part in many different aspects of life at Orchard Lake. Among these were the competitive English Oratorical Con- test and the festive Christmas Mu- sicale. Walks to Apple Island over the crunching snow, brisk skating, and snappy games of hockey on the LLJIMQQ Lake became frequent. Though they were unaware of it, they had come to be imbued with a new and co-operative spirit, one of fellowship and joviality, a spirit that is hard to express . . . I call it the "Spirit of St. Mary's." The coming of spring brought baseball and track, two sports in which the Freshmen were as well repre- sented as they were in the others. The annual Spring Concert, Family Night, and "Open House" gave the Frosh class an opportunity to take part in a large number of exceptionally memorable events. The achievements of members of the Little Theatre and the Craft Club were recognized with the presentation of awards at the Family Night program. After the final exams in June, as I watched them jubilantly leave the class building, I real- ized how anxious they were for the summer vacation and how sorely I would miss them during the summer months. The next September found 'tmy boys" returning as Sophomores and Father Henry Waraksa as their new class master. They were veterans now . . . "old hands at the gamel' who knew what to expect in the months ahead. After several subtractions and additions, the Sophomores num- bered thirty-five students, all "ripp'n and rarin to go.', And go they did . . . the class was again well repre- "Norm" l. - "Duns" sented on the football squad as well as on the Honor Roll. Another Mission Rally, a Halloween Party and the long awaited Student Government Day swiftly came and went, but l dare say will long be remembered by those who took part in them. I would like it to be known that although never leaving my elevated position of responsibility atop the class building, I observed many things about this class . . . few were the experiences and the aspects of the class that escaped my attention. The students had captured, unconsciously perhaps, a spirit of understanding and appreciation for their rich Polish cultural heritage and their priceless Catholic Faith. They lived, at Orchard Lake, a life in which academic en- deavors, opportunities for good companionship, recrea- tional activities and participation in the liturgical life of thc Church were combined and integrated into a har- monious whole. Winter again found basketball the king of sports at St. Mary's and this season his reign was an excep- tionally glorious one. The Reserve Team defeated one opponent after another and came up with the City Cham- pionship, an unprecedented feat in the annals of St. Mary's. During these long winter months, those who were not on the various hardwood teams, kept them- selves occupied with other extracurricular activities in intramurals, the Clee Club, the Band and many profita- ble hours over a good book. Checkers, Chess, Ping-Pong and Pool tournaments always found enthusiastic partici- pants. Talcnt in another field was discovered when the Sophomorcs had a winner in both the English and Polish Oratorical Contests. It was during their Sophomore year that the Class of '56 established the first student publi- cation of their residence building, the Ark Log. F.

The track and baseball seasons, having been completed, and final examinations held, the Sophomores left St. Mary's once again to enjoy a well deserved summer vacation. Three months later "my boys" were back at -St. Maryis' again, this time as Juniors with a new class master, Father John Rakoczy. They now took up residence the College building, popularly known as 'iThe Barracks" with Father Joseph Kubik as disciplinariari. Severaf members of the class held 'gkey" positions oriithe Ifootf. ball squad and it was they who were largely lresponsiblei for the profitable season which ensued.

Day after day, as I watched "my boys"Q walk about the campus, l could see that there was a change coming over them. Because of the efforts of our distinguished faculty members, they were coming to realize more and more the necessity of education and earnest study as a preparation for a bright and success- ful future. They were unaware of my presence, con- tinually looking down upon the campus quadrangle. At Halloween ,and Christmas, the Juniors sponsored parties for their upper-classmen. The festivities of the holiday season went as quickly as they had come and the gym- nasium began to vibrate again with the sound of healthy boys and their beloved sport. Of course, the season was a victorious one. The winter days were filled with work and play, always enjoyed in the companionship of jovial and happy companions. ln March, the long-awaited day of the class ring presentation ceremony came and will long be remembered by members of the class and their families. With the advent of Spring, the baseball and track equipment were brought out of storage. This year, the Juniors began to take the forefront in both sports. That explains, in large measure, the profitable season in track and the Suburban Catholic Championship won in base- ball. The yearly track and field day was eagerly an- "STICK" ticipated by one and all. Then came final examinations, a Caudeamus Party for the Seniors, Commencement Exercises and summer recess once again. The early days of September saw the arrival of the members of the class of '56 for another scholastic year . . . their most important too. Now the Seniors numbered twenty-seven fellows with Father John Rakoczy again serving the class as their moderator. Almost immedi- ately, the student body was plunged into the spirit of the football season. And for a good reason . . . the Eaglets won the Suburban Parochial League Champion- ship in football, something unheard-of in the history of St. Maryis. From my place atop the class building, l looked with pride upon "my hoysf' the class of '56 who were the first ones to lead the Red and White through an undefeated season on the gridiron. The many and varied duties of the Seniors, as soliciting advertisements for the Orchard Lake yearbook, The Eagle, taking class pictures, and selecting invitations occupied much of the time. One of the numerous achievements for which the Class of '56 will always be remembered was its intro- duction, on the gracious suggestion and paternal guid- ance of the Reverend Principal, of the Student Offi- cer's Council and the Student Assembly program.

C g u t nl- "l.laNNY" X HBENNYN was just another addition to the numerous accomplish- ments of the Graduating Class of '56, The Senior year for "my boys" was an important one in more than one respect. They were learning, little by little, what was expected of them in the years ahead. They were to be leaders of their people, leaders of the American Polonia. Truly they would be Polish Americans, fully conscious of their priceless cultural heritage and prepared to pass that rich treasure on to future generations . . . they were to he militant Catholics, who, well versed in their Holy Religion, would bring Catholic influences into a secularized world . . . lastly they were to be good Ameri- cans, who, loving their native land and aware of her problems, would ever be ready to serve and to sacrifice for Cod and Country. The basketball season showed forth the true colors of many of the Seniors who now led the Red and White unto victory in their competition with other schools. In the spring, the class trip, a five day affair, was spent in Washington and New York . . . most truthfully it may be said to embody the best of all the fond memories of High School days. In baseball and track, as in the previous sports, the Seniors took their rightful places of leadership among the rest of the students. This last sports season, will always be remembered by the partici- pants not only because it was the last ofltheir High School days, but because of the many frierids and val- uable experiences gained while taking part in it. Then came the final examinations, the Gaudeamus party, and the approach of Commencement in unmerciful succes- sion. I noted that in these days jubilant happiness was mingled with feelings of regretful sorrow. The Com- mencement day was here at last. "My boys" had waited four years for this day . . . years which later they would recall as the happiest of their lives . . . years during which they had grown from boys into men. As they solemnly marched down the campus walk toward the auditorium, I could tell that in the heart of each one, sentiments of happiness were mixed with sor- row . . . happiness at having arrived at their cherished goal at last . . . sorrow at leaving the friends they had come to know so well and the Alma Mater who had been so good to them, and whom they had come to love and appreciate so dearly. From my post, venerable with age, I watched the solemn procession advance toward, the 'igymf' and though they were unaware of it, a few tears trickled down my time-worn face as I beat away their final minutes at Orchard Lake. '4My boys" were men now, but somehow I knew, to me at least, they would always remain . . . amy boysf' the Class of '56. it E CSMPZIITZY, "NELL1E" LGOPH YU HS SI EEHELY HRODH "Pops" l "Skip"--crew cut . . . friendly smile . . .

Ronald Mack Business Manager 4 .pf EE Publishing a yearbook is a unique experience-one which will never be forgotten by the individuals who played an intrinsic role in bringing the job to completion. Now that the "puzzle" of the yearbook has been solved, we are in a position to look back and evaluate our efforts. When the work commenced in September of this school year, all we had for a starting point was a vague concept of a yearbook. We anticipated the great amount of work ahead of us with a feeling of pessimism, thinking that perhaps we were incapable of the task. But slowly and steadily we began building upon our concept-choosing staffs, amassing photos, writing copy, and soliciting ads. Thus day by day, piece by piece the almost unintelligible concept began ma- terializing into a more vivid reality. The difficulties which we ex- perienced were varied and frequent. Many times we felt the "pre- deadline pressure' sapping us of that necessary encouraging factor, and then it was only the fundamental desire to fulfill the Will of God which kept us at the task. We must admit that the job of publication was actually a course in itself. Besides the journalistic knowledge we acquired, we learned how to grow in certain virtues, we learned much about the major Polish fraternal organizations in the U. S., and we learned more about Orchard Lake. ln viewing the 1956 Eagle in its totality, we see now that it means much more to us than a mere collection of photos and copy pertinent to the scholastic year of 1955-56. It represents a cooperative effort worthy of praiseg it is the culmination of our four-year stay at Orchard Lakeg it is a manifestation of a devotion to the Will of Godg it is a reminder of the many headaches and sacrifices which we endured on its account.

It has faithfully expressed life on the Orchard Lake campus not only to the students but also to the Alumni. It is a publication which proudly boasts of modest achievements in literary and journalistic endeavors.

Conscious of this fact, the group of Polish Refugee Boys who came to the 0.L. campus in 194-5 estab- lished thc Our Way Quarterly to counteract any in- ertia which may have developed on their part. The efforts have heen well rewarded through all the years of its existence. Though most of the lads who first came to thc campus are gone now, they still have this lively and sprightly publication which serves as the bond of unity among them.

By means of the various dramas produced by the members, thc doors to Polish cultural achieve- ments are opened.

Polish ghosts and goblins made their appearance at the Halloween SACRED HEART SOCIETY "May the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere." The main objectives of the Sacred Heart Society are contained within its very title: "To make our hearts one with that of the Sacred Heart." Here at the Seminary it is a religious society whose aim is to promote and propagate the devotion of the Sacred Heart, as Our Lord Himself revealed to St. Margaret Mary, and to offer personal reparation to the Sacred Heart. Be- sides the mentioned functions, the Society also pro- vides for the material needs of the two campus Chapels. EUCHARISTIC LEAGUE The real presence of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist is a principal dogma of our Catholic faith. it is, therefore, one of the greatest and by far the most important treasures which Christ be- queathed to His chosen followers on the eve of His death. Every Thursday afternoon the mem- bers of the Eucharistic League gather in the pre- sence of the Blessed Sacrament to praise and glorify Jesus Christ. lt is here that they offer reparation for their daily faults and imperfections, and come to a more vivid realization of the duties and ob- ligations awaiting them as future priests. SS. CYRIL AND METHODIUS SOCIETY The SS. Cyril and Mcthorlius Society is a rela- tively new society on thc campus and is under the protection of the Apostles to the Slavs and patrons of the Theology Department. lt has for its aim a special interest and study of the uni- fication of the Eastern Rites with the YVestern. The members strive to achieve this aim chiefly by their spiritual assistance, praying for the fulfill- ment of Christ's words, "that there may be one Fold and one Shepherd." Regular meetings which have enjoyed unusually large attendances discuss the problems facing a unification of East and West. Office-rs: l'rc'sident: M. Wieczorckg Vice-President: R.

KRZYZOSIAK MISSION SOCIETY "Go therefore and initiate all nations in disciple- ship, baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." These were the words spoken to the twelve Apostles by their Master as He clirccted them to spread the word of Cod to all nations. As time passed the Apostles flied, but the words planted by them remained and brought forth great fruit. The Seminary Mission Unit encourages within its members love toward thc Missions and begs God's blessings upon all Mission work. Officers: Moderator: Rev. F. Orlil-ig President: Rev. Mr. A.

Francis Orlik, the College Mis- sion Society has as its main interest and objective the untiring effort of aiding the Missions. Its ob- jectives are three-fold: financial, inspirational and devotional. It helps sponsor a yearly campus mis- sion program at which the highlight is a talk by a foreign missionary guest speaker. On the cam- pus it fills the Mission needs by providing mission pamphlets and movies. Officers: Moderator: Rev. F. Orlikg President: J. Lom- nickig Vice-President: T. Rutkowskig Secretary: T. Skotek. HIGH SCHOOL MISSION SOCIETY The Mission Society in the High School Depart- ment has been established to make the High School student more mission-minded, that is, to make him realize the great need of the world missions, and the missionary work of the salvation of souls. Though he is not able to go out into the world and bring souls to the truth directly, he is still able to take part in the promotion of the missions by prayers, sacrifices, and alms. Thus the High School student is able to aid in the great cause of spreading the word of God. Officers: President: Mr. A. Pawlowslcig Vlke-President: Mr. F. Fiedorg Secretary: Mr. E.

St. Louis De Montfort fully lived these words and the sodality of Our Blessed Lady tries to follow his example. The special veneration of Mary is an age-old tradition among Poles. Because of this, Mary has time and again protected her children in time of peril. Mary sheltered the Child Jesus in Her loving armsg in like manner she protects her servants when adversity waylays them along the journey of life. Thus through the Sodality the sodalist draws nearer to the everlasting protection of Our Blessed Mother. Officers: Moderator: Rev. A. Maksimikg President: M. Wieczorek: Vice-President: S.

The Sodality aids him to discover how Mary fits into the Divine plan of redemption. Through its activities, meetings, and discussions the members acquire a more ex- tensive knowledge of their faith, especially in so far as the practical aspects of it are concerned. The program of activities is always an ambitious one and extends from September to May, requiring the cooperation of every member at all times. Officers: Moderator: Rev. J. Swastekg Prefect: R.

COLLEGE A CAPPELLA CHOIR Sparing nothing in talent, the College A Cap- pella Choir through the years has adroitly ren- dered for its listeners glittering choral interpre- tations. These young men, Sophomores and Fresh- men of St. Mary's College, under the able direction of Rev. Mr. Thaddeus Ozog, have shone forth time and time again. With a pleasant commingling of their Catholic-Polish-American heritage in the realm of choral music, the College Choir has en- riched and brought joy to its audiences. The Choir has also received special recognition for its splen- did performances in the annual Christmas and Spring concerts. BAND Composed of musicians from all three schools on the campus and under the baton of Fr. Henry Warakszi, the band manifests its musical skill on a number of occasions, but primarily during the Yul'etide season and at the annual Spring concert. This young group of musicians gayfully imparts a spirit of symphonizing good will into the hearts of its listeners. A successful performance is al- ways its aim and achievement. Each of the mem- bers from flute to tuba, from drum to clarinet, always gives his all to continue a tradition of ac- complishment that is unrivalled in thc musical an- nals of Orchard Lake. Frequent and regular prac- tices, though time consuming and sacrifice de- manding, bring about the required perfection of execution that distinguish this body and evoke the enthusiastic reception which always comes its way.

HIGH SCHOOL GLEE CLUB The members of St. Mary's High School Glee Club impart an added cheerfulness to St. Mary's Campus through their melodic interpretations of popular and religious music. Many opportunities for a display of their talents present themselves through the school year both on and off campus.

B5 1 f-' 'KZ LITTLE THEATRE The development of the whole man cannot be complete unless he receives an education in the aesthetic, a vital part of which is the field of speech and drama. To fulfill its standard of com- plete education St. Mary's has formed a Little Theatre in which three-act plays and skits are pre- senlcd regularly throughout the academic year. With this experience in the theatre, the young man is better able to adapt himself to life in our mod- ern society, to appreciate the art of acting and play production, and to give opportunity to his dramatic desires and abilities.

CRAFT CLUB Not only should the High School student be ed- ucated intellectually, morally and religiously, but also he must be afforded the opportunity of a manual education. For the fulfillment of this need: the Craft Club has been organized in the High School Department. It is designed to fulfill this desire of many students by enabling them to put their own ideas into effect in wood, metal and leather. Officers: Director: Prefect A. Wozniakg President: T.

The Moms' and Dads' Club contributes not only to the financial needs of the school, but also helps to build the morale. The largest activity of the Club is the annual parties given during the Christmas and Easter Seasons. Officers: Moderulorz Rev. F.

Among its objectives it specifically has the dissemination of information about the P.R.C.U. to the students. Its excellent record of accomplishment in the fields of religion, culture, and education speak out its importance.

But its popularity and extensive use doesn't just hap- pen. lt is made possible, and this efficiently possi- ble, by the sacrifices of the student athletic man- agers whose duty and obligation it is to supervise the use of the facilities, as well as keep them in perfect order and state. It is they who provide the brain, brawn, and muscle required by the ex- panded program of activities of the athletic de- partment. Staff: R. Opiola, J. Nelson, S. Piaseczuy, R. Goclowski, C.

One of the most important of these is the Canteens. Managers of the four cantcens supply the students with what seems one of the necessities of modern life, the after-meal snack. They are operated entirely by student man- agers and their assistants, thus giving them the responsibility and experience of operating a small- scale business. Managers: Seminary: E.

In the midst of the vital religious, scholastic, and recreational events, the young men hardly notice the frost that stiffens the Halloween moon. Rosary devotions, various classes and flying footballs hold the interest of the entire institution. The quarterly exams are already concluded with a devout "Deo gratiasv when the canonical purple of Advent strengthens the waning fervor of the students. The feast of the Immaculate Conception sees some of the men in the seminary approach nearer the Holy Priesthood. Soon all eyes glisten with the Christmas Star. Archbishop Gawlina's visit to Orchard Lake was the occasion for a great banquet attended by Bishops Woznicki and Zaleski and many of the clergy from the Archdiocese of Detroit and Diocese of Saginaw.

After a rousing salute to the Christ Child, the Orchard Lake campus peacefully resounds with the traditional refrains of the Christmas Musicale. Winter's calm ascendancy is sharply challenged as the revitalized students resume their varied activities. The air is charged as all strive to gain impetus to persevere in this important period of the year. A general tension envelops the halls as mid-semester exams draw near. The gymnasium and recreation rooms are welcome havens in this trying time. The frozen lake invites the more robust to skate or fish in the invigorating outdoors. The fertile liturgy of Lent elicits a rebirth of zeal as many small sacrifices are united with the passion of Christ to embellish them with eternal merit. Finally the heavy yoke of winter begins to lose its grip on the campus when the conquering Christ bursts wide the claws of clammy death. The joyful heralds of a new season gladden the hearts at Saint Mary's. ,f Hi The Moms and Dads of the Prep- men arrange a festive Christ- mas party on the afternoon of the last Sunday before the Yule- tide vacation for all the parents of the students, the Faculty and student body. The History and Library Departments spon- sor a historical symposium in the Reading Room of the Library each year on Found- er's Day. 1 i Q- , , . Severyn Turel, renowned concert pianist and composer, performed at a special program for the students of St. Mary's.

The Spring festival of music finds the campus teeming with talent eager to join in the action. Now comes the time for reflection and review. The students refresh their memories for the final exams and ponder wistfully their stay here before they leave, some for the last time.

SPUHT5 HIIJTB LL 1955 Suburban Catholic League "Champions" The powerful edition of the 1955 Eaglets smashed through eight con- consecutive wins this year to become the finest football squad ever at St. Mary's. Playing hard and heads-up ball from start to finish under their new coach, Father John Rakoczy, the Eaglets compiled the first perfect record at St. Mary's and also brought the long-awaited Suburban Catholic League crown to Orchard Lake for the first time. The season started off on September 25 at the Lake against St. James of Ferndale. Although the Eaglet front wall did not function properly in the opener, halfback Paul Franckowiak and quarterback Ted Kopacki were just too much for the opponents to handle as they paced SMOL to a 25 to 7 victory. Franckowiak hit pay dirt twice and Kopacki threw two touch- down passes: to left end, Pete Madelans and to right end, Stan Majewski. A week later, October 2, the Shamrocks of St. Michael's High hosted the title-bound Eaglets at Pontiac's Wisner Stadium but the visitors trounced them, 25-0. Gerry Leszczynski, 188 pound fullback, scored two 'times on a 6 yard plunge and 25 yard run. Half Lenny Mallat also figured in the scoring with a 5 yard run off tackle and dynamic Ted Kopacki raced 63 yards for the final tally. On October 9, the Fighting Eaglets travelled to Hazel Park where they feasted themselves on the Vikings of St. Ritais, taking the contest easily, 31-6. Leszczynski opened the party with a three yard crack for the first score and Madelans converted. Kopacki, in the second period, uncorked a 50 yard pass to Stan Majewski in the end zone for TD number 2. After the intermission, Paul Franckowiak threw 28 yards to Madelans for another score, employing the faithful "McAdoo Special." Len Mallat from 'two yards out and tackle Denis Mutrynowski with his 31 yard runback of a fumble completed the hectic day to give SMOL their third win. When Sunday, October 16, rolled around, so did the rain. But this didn't stop the determined Eaglets as they fought rain, mud, and the stub- born opposition of St. Clement's. With four minutes remaining in the first half and the Crusaders out in front, 6-0, Ted Kopacki swept his left end, outraced his interference, eluded several would-be tacklers and crossed the goal line 51 yards later. Leszczynski ran for the point. After the kickoff, Pete Madelans picked up a fumble on the first scrimmage play and ran 31 yards for a second score. One minute later, Leszczynski intercepted a pass and raced 37 yards down the sidelines unmolested for the third TD. Kopacki passed to Majewski for the extra point, the 20th St. Mary's had scored in Fu. JOHN Rncoczv Head Coach E- ' .ax . . ' ' ' lk.. 4 M. Maras, Asst. Coach, Fr. J. Rakoczy, Head Coach, and Rev.

Majewski VARSITY BASKETBALL The St. Mary's Eaglet Varsity, a fighting and "never say die" team from early December to mid-March, provided the basketball followers of SMOL with another thrilling and exciting season, spiced with fine play and colorful action and topped off with the winning of the Class "C" District Title, the second straight for St. Mary's, as they copped the Class "B" trophy last year. The season's record was 13 won and 6 lost. Play started on December 2 against the Eaglets, neighbor, West Bloomfield High, but the opponents edged St. Mary's 50-41. Suburban Catholic League action began a week later at Ferndale against St. James with the Eaglets taking a final 63-53 decision. Kopacki was high point man with 27. This was followed by a non-league tilt with St. Stanislaus in which the Eaglets were victors by a 61-40 count. The first of three encounters with an old nemesis, St. Benedict's of Highland Park, had its place of action at Or- chard Lake. With the Eaglets off to a slow first half which saw them score only six points, the Ravens were able to hand SMOL a bitter 36-25 loss. Kopacki connected for 12 points, 10 in the second half. After the holidays, St. Mary's in the thick of the race for the Suburban League crown, won five straight contests. St. Clement's fell, 45-36, Lennie Mallat's shot in the last three seconds of one of the most exciting games seen at Orchard Lake in many a year sunk St. Michael's, 47-45, St. Rita's was no competition, losing 63-55, Kopacki getting 27 points, St. Mary's of Royal Oak fell by the wayside, 44-39, and St. Frederick's did likewise, 58-42. The winning streak was broken by an unmerciful St. Benedict five who crushed the Eaglets 47-33. However, the O. L. men bounced back to a 56-38 victory over St. James, and then bowed to the strong St. Michael quintet in the league finale, 42-36. In four post-season pre-tournament tilts, the Eaglets defeated St. Fred- erick's, Sweetest Heart and Royal Oak Shrine, while they lost to a strong Wyan- dotte Mount Carmel five. The St. Mary's team began tournament play by winning over Bloomfield Hills 49-38 in the semi-finals of the Class "C" District tournament play. In the District finale, they gained revenge against West Bloomfield High as they took a 54-50 victory. The Regionals pitted the St. Mary's quintet against St. Benedict's, and for the third time in the season, the Ravens were the victors, this time by a score of 65-34. Ted Kopacki, who led the team in scoring with 349 points and a 18.2 average, received a starting berth on several post-season All-Star squads, in- cluding the Detroit Free Press Catholic League Second Division All-Stars. He was awarded second team mention on the Michigan Catholic selections. Pete Madclans also received recognition for his fine play at the center position. Pete was second in scoring with 269 points for a 14-.2 average. The team scored 972 points for a 51.2 average compared to the opponents 916 markers and an average of 48.2. Fn.

Piloted by coach Al Kisluk, they squeezed out a 35-33 win over West Bloom- field in their initial encounter of the season. The Eaglets were victorious in their next three tilts, registering victories over St. James, St. Stanslaus, and St. Benedict's. This gave the Reserves four straight wins before the Christmas holidays. The Lakers returned from the holiday intermission to hand St. Clement's a 62-39 walloping. Then in one of the most thrilling contests of the year, the Eaglets pulled the "freeze" play against St. Michael's in the last 90 seconds and iced the con- test at 43-42. Dick Strucinski hit a season-high -with 20 markers. The Reserves appeared unbeatable as they powered over a hapless St. Rita's quint, 63-31. But the winning streak was dissolved when they bowed to Royal Oak St. Mary's in a tight one, 41-39. However, the Lakers came back strong against St. Frederick's, taking the game 42-34. Then came another heartbreaking defeat which saw St. Benedict's on the top of a 37-35 score. St. James then lost again to Orchard Lake, 58-39, as did St. Michael's, 40-28. Before their playoff game, the Reserves beat St. Fred's in a game which saw Richie Oszustowicz hit for 18 points. In the playoffs against St. Mary's R.O., the jayvees hit only 15 of 31 charity tosses to lose a heartbreaker, 45-43. However, when Royal Oak forfeited its right, the Eaglets represented the SCL and lost to a strong St. Andrew quint, 54-45. The remainder of the schedule saw a High School intramural team lose to Sweetest Heart, 32-24, the Reserves lose a 53-41 ball game to Wyandotte Mount Carmel and win a tight 46-43 contest from Royal Oak Shrine in the season finale. Rev. Mr. Al Kisluk, Coach, and his scrappy Reserve Basketball team. L- GULF The first golf team in the history of St. Mary's High School made its debut in 1955 under the able direction of Fathers John Rakoczy and Edward Skrocki. Members of the initial foursome included Seniors Pat Ryan, Ken Lerczak and Donald Horkey and Sophomore Richard McLean. The first meet was held on the River Rouge course in Detroit on April 21 against St. Bernard's. Paced by Captain Pat Ryan's 49 for the nine hole event, the Eaglets took the match easily, winning by 38 strokes, 24-0 to 278. Six days later, again at River Rouge, the SMOL quartet faced a team from St. Paul's that edged St. Mary's by two strokes, 215 to 217. On May 3, Royal Oak St. Mary's handed the SMOL golfers their second defeat, this by six strokes in best ball play. The Lakers had a tough time on the long Sylvan Glen Course with Pat Ryan registering a poor 57 on the first nine but coming back strong with a 44 for a total of 101. St. Frederick's of Pontiac finished 27 strokes ahead of the SMOL quar- tet on nearby Edgewood Golf Course for the Eaglets third loss. The Eaglets finished the season on a happy note, however, when they were 13 strokes in front of Cathedral Central at the finish of 18 holes to give them their second win against three defeats. Pat Ryan, back on River Rouge, wiped away all unpleasant memories of the course, by firing an 87 to be medalist. Fu. E.

Led by such stars as Gerry Leszczynski, Stan Majewski, Gerry Ostrowski and Daniel La- zowski, St. Mary's compiled a won-lost record of 7 and 9 against powerful Class A schools of Detroit. ln the April 5th opener, St. Mary's topped Southfield, 67374 to 67174. Oak Park, the third team in the triangular, scored only two points. Strong Walled Lake beat St. Mary's, 75 to 34, as did powerful St. ,loseph's High from Detroit, 57 to 52. The Eag- lets returned to the winning way by defeating St. Mary's of Mount Clemens, 69175 to 39475. Another power from Detroit, Servite, handed St. Mary's its third loss, taking the meet easily, 70172 to 38172. The Eaglets really evened up their season's mark at 3-3 when they walloped St. Mary's Redford and Cathedral Central in a triangular at University of Detroit. The final score, a new record for SMOL, was 100172 to 40 to 38172, respectively. For the second time, Servite defeated the Lakers in a triangular meet at the U of D oval. The Panthers totaled 70174 points to Orchard Lake's 56 to Cathedral Centralis 10 374. Waterford also handed OL a loss, winning 59175 to 45 575. St. Mary's Mount Clemens had 30 points. St. Michaells of Pontiac were easy pickings for OL, as they lost 71172 to 37172. However, Cranbrook managed St. Mary's just as easily, taking the dual meet by a score of 75172 to 33172. ln the Class B Regionals held at Ypsilanti, SMOL finished in eighth spot with 6172 points. River Rouge took the Class B honors with 4-8172 points. ln the Catholic League lnvitations, Servite won with little trouble, racking up 62 37 7 points. The Eaglets finished in sixth posi- tion with 6 points behind St. Joseph's, DeLaSalle, St. Bernard's and Austin High. N I FR. JOHN GABALSKI Head Couch The 1955 "Eaglet" Thinclads B. Masztakowski J.

Majewski -of BASEBALL The year 1955 saw the St. Mary's baseball squad end a 23 year old "famine" when they won the Suburban division of the Catholic League, but they'll have to wait another year if they plan to take the Second Division cham- pionship.- St. Philip's High came from behind in the last inning of the deciding game to nose out the Eaglets 6 to 5 and take the title. St. Maryis began the horsehide season at Hazel Park on April 21 against St. Rita's and, after holding off a Viking rally, won the contest, 7-6. Vince Pernicki, Pete Ziebron, and Stan Wiercioch were the big guns in the victory. St. Frederick's provided the next opposition for SMOL in an easy win for the Lakers, who whipped the Rams, 14 to 5. The booming bats of Ron Federowicz, Stan Smolinski and Pete Ziebron, each with 2 hits, gave pitcher Ziebron enough support to take his second game. On May 2, St. Mary's opened the 1955 campaign at home facing St. James. Thanks to an error, a sacrifice hit and another error, the Eaglets took the game in the last inning, 4 to 3. Ziebron, top hitter with 2-for-2, went the distance on the mound. Another close one that was decided in the final inning gave SMOL their fourth straight win when they edged St. Mary's of Royal Oak on the latter's diamond, 2 to 1. Ziebron went all the way, allowing only three hits and striking out seven. St. Michael's of Pontiac proved themselves to be the villain in SMOL's winning ways when they stopped the Eaglets, 6 to 3, at Orchard Lake, Ziebron suffered his first loss as his teamates committed seven errors. St- MMY75 Came Tight back, h0WCVe1', by blaflkiflg St. Beneclict's in Highland Park, 5 to 0, with Pete Ziebron throwing a 41 hitter. St. Rita's, in the return engagement, lost another tight one to SMOL by the score of 3 to 2. The final game of the season was perhaps the toughest. On the verge of winning the Suburban title, St. Mary's faced St. Clement's at OL in a game that was played, after a heavy rain had halted the contest in the second inning for 25 minutes, in ankle-deep mud. It was a real thriller that saw St. Mary's push across 4- runs in the last inning and take the game 8 to 7. This was St. Mary,s first baseball championship of any kind since 1932. May 27 was the day that SMOL faced the West Side winners, St. Andrew's, and once more, had to score in the final inning to earn them the right to Fa.

The final score was 3-2. The University of Detroit was the scene of the Second Division playoff game between St. Mary's and St. Philip's. The latter went into a 2-0 lead in the opening inning but Orchard Lake came back with two runs in the fifth and added three more in the sixth to hold a 5-3 lead, going into the seventh inning. Two singles, a booming triple and a walk proved to be the downfall of the St. Mary's baseball team as they lost 6-5 The final season's record of 8 wins and 2 defeats was the best any SMOL team has chalked up in recent campaigns The top hitter on the club was big first baseman, Ron Federowicz, with a .4-12 percentage.

From autumn, when football fumbles are the common sight on the field, through winter, when excited cheers move the roof from the gymnasium, to spring and the sound of ball against bat, the student's character is enriched tre- mendously in the spirit of co-operation. ln all three divisions, high school, college and seminary, the football leagues begin their sched- ules, and the year's intramural sports picture has a good start. Various playoffs and championship games close the schedules come cold November. The snow comes and so do the students to the gym where interest really reaches a peak in the sport that is played by all, basketball. Orchard Lake freezes over and the hockey enthusiasts get out the rusty skates for many enjoyable hours on the ice. Of course, during this season, the buildings hold their annual pool, ping-pong, checker, and chess tournaments to keep everyone "on his toes." Then, the white snow disappears under the gold- en Spring sun and makes way for the beautiful green grass. The baseball diamond, the volleyball and tennis courts all receive much wear from eager athletes. And after a hard session on the field, there's nothing like a cool, refreshing dip in the clear, blue waters of Orchard Lake. May 30 rolls around and the intramural sports calendar comes to a fitting climax in the annual Field Day with all the classes competing against each other for honors.

Chronologically speaking, the first to appear was the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America, which was founded in 1873. The next fifty years saw the rise of the remaining thirteen fraternals, with the United Polish Women of America, which was established in 1932, being the youngest. Eight of the fraternals were started in the nineteenth century: the Polish Roman Catho- lic Union of America Q18731g the Polish National Alliance Q18801g the Polish Fal- cons of America Q18861 3 the Polish Union of the United States of America Q18901g the Alliance of Poles in America Q18951g the Polish Womenis Alliance of America Q18981g the Polish Beneficial Association Q18991. Five fraternals were established during the twentieth century. Four of them appeared before World War 1: the Polish National Alliance of Brooklyn Q19031g the Associa- tion of the Sons of Poland Q19031g the Pol- ish Alma Mater of America Q19'101g and the Polish Union of America Q19171. Only two fraternals were founded after the war-the Union of Polish Women in America Q19201 and the United Polish Women of America Q 19321. Illinois and Pennsylvania are the birth- place of eight of the fourteen fraternals. Five-the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America, the Polish Falcons, the Polish Women's Alliance of America, the Polish Alma Mater of America and the United Pol- ish Women of America were founded in Illi- nois. Three others-the Polish Beneficial Association, the Polish National Alliance of America, and the Union of Polish Women in America-were organized in Pennsylvania. Two were founded in New York: the Polish National Alliance of Brooklyn and the Pol- ish Union of America. The remaining four appeared in as many states: the Polish Union of the United States of North America Qin Minnesota1, the Polish Association of America Qin Wisconsin1, the Alliance of Poles in America Qin Ohio1, and the Associa- tion of the Sons of Poland Qin New Jersey1. The multiple objectives of the fourteen or- ganizations are very much alike. Their com- mon purpose is insurance, or the sale of in- surance policies. However, insurance is not the only purpose. The other purposes may be summed up as follows: Q11 to unify immigrants of Polish and Slavic descent by means of religious, moral and material aid in time of needg Q21 to foster among them a new love for their adopted country, as well as to keep their old love for their fatherland, their language, cus- toms and cultureg Q31 to develop in youth a better understanding of American patriotism and loyalty, and help them to become better citizens, conscious of their obligations and fulfilling them honorablyg to inculcate in men and women alike the finest ideals of the Polish heritage. The Museum and Archives of the Polish Roman Catholic Union are among the finest in the United States and hold the episcopal robes and vessels of the Servant of God, Archbishop John B. Cieplak. Taken together, the fourteen fraternals have a membership of 754,528 members grouped in 5,4-95 lodges. Heading the list as regards both membership and lodges is the Polish National Alliance which has a mem- bership of 338,124 members and 1,625 lodges. Next comes the Polish Roman Catho- lic Union of America which has 176,850 members, in the number of lodges, however, it stands third, since the Polish Womeifs Al- liance of America has 1,196 lodges compared with the 1,04-'I lodges of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America. The members of the fourteen fraternals live throughout the United States but more than half reside in Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania. In Illinois there are 162,205 members, in Pennsylvania there are 136,529 and in New York there are l09,519. ln the fiscal year 1955 the assets of the fourteen fraternal organizations amounted to 3154-,24-4-,76il.60 with the Polish National Alliance having a share of fS73,985,567. The current liabilities of the fourteen organiza- tions for the same year amounted to 354,861,- 329.00. The benefits paid to the holders of insurance policies reached a total of 3573,- l50,346.68 during that year. The activities of the fourteen Polish Amer- ican fraternal organizations are very much the same, a combination of insurance and so- cial service. There is only one exception. The Polish Association of America deals strictly with insurance and is engaged in 110 other activities. Though organized as insurance companies, the thirteen other fraternals also sponsor var- ' 1-- Each of these organizations considers a youth section a must for its growth and development. in. -. ..-.,.,-:IL ' 1 " 5i"f-'a fl" t i R 1 N 1 " .5 9 ??. ,,?-. ,A Y Y: f ' RQ?

Reverend Francis Gordon, C.R., took to Father Barzynskiis idea and brought it to fruition. Being the moderator of a Polish Falcon group at St. Stanislaus Parish in Chi- cago, Father Gordon in due time trans- formed it into the first group of the Alma Mater.

Mr. Andrzejkowicz stressed the neces sity for all Polish organizations in America the name 'cZwiazek Narodowy Polski" fPol- ish National Alliancej. It was understood that each society which joined would retain its individual character. Messrs. Julian Szajnert, Julian Lipinski, Vincent Doman- ski, John Bialynski, Anthony Wojczynski, John Popielinski, John Blachowski, Teofil Kucielski, aIId Peter Beczkiewicz, co-f0und- ers of the Alliance, supported their confrere's proposal. Immediately, thereupon, an open invita- tion was published in the Polish Press asking all Polish American societies to join the pro- posed association. Societies from Illinois, California, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York, and Wisconsin responded immediate- ly. After the first draft of the Constitution was completed, Mr Andrzejkowicz designated September 20 1880 as the d rte for the First National Convention of the Polish National Alliance The place chosen was Chicago It was at the Convention that the Alliance s ob jectrves were defined, namely, to strrve for the moral and material betterment of Poles lrvrng rn Amer rea to assist the Polish rmmr grant to establish himself upon hrs arrival rn the United States, to make use of all puhlrc relations media rn order to better the polrtr cal, and economic srtuatron of the Polish people rn America ind Poland, and to com memorate national anniversaries Further more, the Convention decided to adopt the 4141 ,ylfff-it!-If 'V' The most laudable of P.N.A. purposes is to provide necessary funds for operational and capi- tal expenditures of Alliance Col- lege in Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania, which is accredit- ed by the North Central Associa- tion.

Ever since its formal establishment, the Polish National Alliance has sought to bett rf' the educational level of Poles livingxin-. . - r- ica. One important step magic? ' accomplishment of this was the founding of the Alliance College in Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania. President Taft in his speech on the occasion of the College's dedication fOctober 26, 1912i said that the United States of America was proud to have a group of immigrants so interested in its newly adopted country as to establish a center of higher education for its own constituents. The President further commented on the neces- sity and utility of such an institution as the Alliance College which would instruct Poles, not only in the history, literature and culture of America, but also in that of Poland, there- by preparing better and more useful citizens of the United States. Noteworthy is the fact that long before the establishment of the Alliance College, the Polish National Alliance was already inter- ested in supporting centers of higher learn- ing. As early as 1886, the Alliance placed a special assessment on its members for the purpose of creating a fund which was des- ignated to aid in the construction and main- On the North East corner of Lafayette Square in the city of Washington stands the Kosciuszko tenance of the Polish Seminary in Detroit, now located at Orchard Lake. The social, charitable, and cultural are not overlooked by the Alliance in its log of activities. It gives financial assistance to its poor and destitute members, maintains a li- brary and archives, a museum, sports clubs, choral societies, amateur dramatic circles, folk dancing groups, and publishes Zgoda, a weekly, and Dziennik Zwiazkowy, a daily. It also sponsors summer camps for boys and girls as well as supplementary schools for the teaching of the Polish language. While still in its infancy, the Polish Na- tional Alliance recognized the necessity of a Mortuary Fund, but it was not until a decade later that an adequate insurance program was devised. lcontinued on page 2133 .QA i ' i I' ' , "3 I fl at , J lt L i . 1 .1, f.

The specific aims of the Alliance are: Q11 to unite American Poles and others of Slavic descent for the purpose of affording them an opportunity to profit by the benefits that accrue from such a union, Q21 to instill in them a greater love for their adopted coun- try, Q31 to encourage its members to prac- tice the corporal works of mercy, Q41 to pre- serve the Faith of their Forefathers, Q51 to make a positive contribution to American cul- ture by keeping alive an interest in the cul- ture, history, and literature of Poland, Q61 to encourage its youth to study and use the Polish language. Withili the past fifty-two years, member- ship has steadily increased to a total of 20,- 652 and lodges to 152. The Polish National Alliance of Brooklyn issues certificates from S300 to !'1B10,000.

Fully cognizant of the fact that the works of Inercy must occupy a focal and not mar- ginal place in the life of every true Chris- tian, the United Polish Women of America has outlined a model program of charity. One outstanding facet of its program is a Wel- fare Fund which is replenished not by as- sessing its members, but rather by a volun- tary periodic donation. Financial assistance is extended to any needy member whenever misfortune or disaster strikes. It was on December 1, 1932, that the Unit- ed Polish Women of America commenced its insurance activities. Issued at present are the following certificates from 55300 to 32,000: whole life, 20 year payment life, and 20 year endowment. In 1955 adult ben- efit certificates numbered 3,666 and Junior 287.

PIJLISH HUMAN IIATHULIII UNIUN cn-ncAGo, n.uNo:s IP 'f W It was in the early 1870's W A that Poles began to im- migrate en masse to the United States. Most of the 100,000 newly arrived Polish immigrants settled in the industrial, centers such as Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Pittsburg. Almost immediately after their arrival, these immigrants began to build Catholic churches and organize social and charitable societies. As the Polish parishes were the centrum of these societies, activities, it was not long be- fore a Polish pastor advanced the idea of uniting all various Polish American social and charitable societies into one organiza- tion: such a priest was the Reverend Theo- dore Gieryk of Saint Albertus Parish, Detroit, Michigan. In June of 1873, Father Gieryk made known his idea in an open letter pub- lished in various then-existent Polish week- lies. Seeing the wisdom in Father Gieryk's idea, Mr. John Barzynski, editor of the Polish weekly newspaper The Pilgrim, his brother Father Vincent Barzynski, and Messrs. Peter Kiolbassa and Joseph Closkowski arranged for a convention to be held in Detroit on Oc- tober 3, 1873, for the purpose of discussing how Father Gieryk's idea could be best ma- terialized. The home of the P.R.C.U. as well as its Archives and Museums is at 984 Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago. Kftsimm I. Kozmciizwxcz President Although the project was unanimously ap- proved, it was decided to postpone actual organization as respresentation at the Con- vention was incomplete. lt was proposed, in consequence, that a National Congress of Pol- ish Americans be held in Chicago on October 14, 15, and 16, 1874. Messrs. Barzynski, Kiolbassa, Closkowski, and Father Gieryk were appointed to act as the Pre-Congress Committee. lt was at the Congress that the foundations of the Polish Roman Catholic Union of Amer- ica fZjednoczenie Polskie R. K. w AJ were laid. Father Gieryk became its first Presi- dent, Mr. Kiolbassa became Vice-President, and Messrs. John Barzynski and August Rud- zinski became Secretary and Treasurer re- spectively. One of the Union's six Directors to be elected was the Reverend Joseph Da- browski, Founder of the Orchard Lake Sem- inary. Twelve years later, it was decided at the 1886 Convention to issue insurance pol- icies. However, it took a full year to es- tablish a definite insurance program. In April, 1887, the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America was granted a Charter of Incorporation in the state of Illinois. This marked the formal beginning of the Union as we know it today. Since its beginning in 1873, the Union has grown to be one of the largest fraternal or- ganizations in the United States, members be- ing found in 37 states. At the end of its first fifty years of existence, the Union boasted 1,036 lodges, with lllinois, Michigan, New York and Pennsylania having the majority. The year 1950 saw the existence of 1,095 lodges, the largest amount in the history of the Union. In 1954 the number of lodges totaled 1,053 and 1,041 in 1955. Member- ship in the lodges in 1954 totaled 176,850 and 175,682 in 1955. The objectives of the Polish Roman Cath- olic Union of America as defined in 1874 at the National Congress in Chicago: to uphold the national spirit of Polish Amer- icansg Q21 to help them persevere in the Faith of their Forefathersg to maintain in its youth a lively interest in things Polish, and Q41 to aid in the building and improve- ment of parochial schools in the United States. Financially speaking, the Polish Union is very sound. As of January 1, 1955, it boast- ed assets of 3i535,261,805.33. Liabilities were ilS1,026,854.27, and reserves 330,910,- 134-.70.

Rev. Mr. Sidney Grabowski Msgr. Dominic Mujer pmsident Founder ther Dominic Majer, a shepherd whose con- cern for the immigrant Poles' social and reli- gious welfare was boundless. The ensuing background material will help to throw some light on the Union's formation. It all started in 1889 when the clergy mem- bers of the Polish National Alliance frowned on the idea of permitting non-Roman Catho- lics to qualify for administrative positions in the Alliance. Seeing that their efforts to pre- vent this were fruitless, they began consid- is l ing the possibility of establishing a new or- ganization, an organization which would not only unite all Polish societies in America, but which would also, as the clergy pointed out, embody the Catholicism of the Polish Ro- man Catholic Union and the Nationalism of the Polish National Alliance. The idea be- came a reality when Father Majer organized Society No. One of the Polish Union in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Colden .luhilee of the P.U. of the U.S. of N.A. was honored with the presence of Most Reverend Stephen Woznicki, then Auxiliary of Detroit and now Bishop of Saginaw. In 1896 the Union transferred headquar- ters from St. Paul to Buffalo. It was trans- ferred again in 1906, this time to Wilkes- Barre, Pennsylvania. The purposes of the Polish Union as out- lined in Article II of its Constitution are: fll to offer its members such insurance poli- cies as ordinary life, 20 year payment life, 20 year endowment, endowment at 65, 10 year endowment and 15 year endowment, f2j to maintain a fund for the promotion of patriotic and educational projects, Q31 to strive for the moral, religious, and material betterment of Poles living in America, Q4-J to commemorate national anniversaries, to instill a deeper love for and loyalty to the United Statesg f6j to develop in the Polish youth a love and respect for its Forefathersg f7j to strengthen in all Union members a love for and filial obe- dience to the Roman Catholic Church, and lcontinued on page 2141 The Most Reverend, William Hafey presided at the Blessing ,of the Headquarters. - -.

It begins with the year 1889, when at the Sth Convention of the Pol- ish National Alliance in Buffalo, New York, a defeated motion to ammend the constitu- tion and thus exclude all non-Roman Catho- lics from the Polish National Alliance, created the moment for the Roman Catholics present at the Convention to organize a new Polish American Roman Catholic Fraternal Organization. After leaving the convention hall, the displeased delegates gathered in the Rectory of St. Stanislaus Parish, where the pastor, Rev. Dean John Pitass, together with Rev. Dominic Majer of St. Paul, Minnesota, inspired them to organize the Polish Union of America. Under the leadership of Fathers Pitass and Mujer, the Union grew and prospered. The First Convention was held in 1893 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

After this Convention, the Offices of the Polish Union of America were transferred to Wilkes- Barre, Pennsylania. At the following Convention in Chicago, the unexpected happened. Since the election of officers was not in agreement with the Constitution, i.e., all were not elected from one city, either Buffalo or Wilkes-Barre, misunderstanding arose and thus cleavage oc- curred in the Organization. The Wilkes-Barre delegation refused to turn the Union's funds and records over to Buffalo. The end result was that two separate organizations were formed, thus sapping greatly the strength of the Union. In the year 1910, two conventions were held simultaneously.

The Alliance's foundress and first president was Stefania Chmielinska, and on August 5, 1898, thirty women formed the first member- ship roster. As membership in the Club grew, it was decided to make national its scope by found- ing chapters in various cities and states, with headquarters remaining in Chicago. Follow- ing the recommendations of its First Conven- tion, the Club was reorganized, and its offi- cial title became the Polish Women's Al- liance of America.

Al- though members are scattered throughout seventeen states, the largest percentage is found in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan and New York respectively. In 1954, 1,187 lodges were counted, in 1955 they increased to 1,196. The aims and objectives of the alliance as discussed in the Polish text of its Constitution are: Q11 Utrzymanie ducha narodowego wsrod Polakow w Ameryce wraz zu usilna praca nad utrwaleniem polskosfci w m'l'odszej generacji i ksztalceniu jej w jezyku ojczystym, historji i literaturze, przez zakladanie szko- l'ek i bibliotekg Q21 Utrzymanie stalfego kon- taktu z Ojczyzna, by naszym wspoludzialem starac sie uwydatnic sily naukowe i artysty- czneg Q31 Stac na strazy honoru i bronic opi- nji narodowej W swietle faktow historyczynch, jak rdwniez starac sie o utrzymanie dobrego imienia, i 0 ile bedzie mozliwem bronid przy- sladowanych rodaczek, i honorowym sposo- bem podtrzymae ich prawa w uzyskaniu spra- wiedliwoscig Q41 Dazyd do zalozenia stalego emigracyjnego komitetu i opieki nad opus- zczonemi dziedmig Usposabiad kobiety do zycia samodzielnego, zachecacf i dopomagari zdobywanie wyzszego wyksztalcenia, a wobec roQvnouprawienia, do czynnego udzialu W po- lityce krajowejg Q61 Dazyc do zalozenia biura informacyjnego i domu dla samotnych pracu- jacych kobietg Q71 Laczyc sie we wszystkich pracach i manifestacjach narodowych dla po- dtrzymania wspolnej idei solidarnosci. The English gist of the above-mentioned ends is this: to keep the Polish women of America ever-mindful of their cultural and patriotic heritage, to offer opportunities for higher education to Polish youthg to pro- vide financial assistance for the aged and those hospitalized, and lastly, to work for the liberation of foreign-dominated Poland.

It was established in Philadelphia on October 17, 1920, by Frances Szwedowa, Agnes Karlewska, and Helene Janoski. The Polish White Cross Circles, which existed after World War I and which were founded by Madame Helen Paderewska, formed the nucleus for the establishment of the Union of Polish Women in America. The Founders felt that the laudable work perform- ed by the White Cross should continue, though in a somewhat modified form due to postwar conditions. The Constitution of the Union stipulates that the scope of this organization is: Q11 to preserve among the Polish women in Amer- ica their moral and religious consciousness in accordance with the teachings of the Ro- man Catholic Church, f2j to imbue them with a spirit of American patriotism and loy- alty, Q31 to inculcate in them, particularly the younger members, worthy Polish ideals as reflected in the literature and history of Poland, Q4-J to encourage a more active par- ticipation in community and civic projects, Q51 and to provide them with benefits per- mitted under the Act of Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania approved .lu'ly 17, 1935, P.L. 1092. As of January 1, 1955, the Union's num- ber of lodges totaled 74, the majority being in Philadelphia. These lodges hold monthly meetings and their agenda not only call for the payment of monthly assessments, but also for the discussion of the Union's welfare as well as social and community affairs. One of the subjects to receive major consideration is that of juvenile delinquency: its causes and cures. As a concrete preventive measure, several lodges have established Juvenile Cir- cles for girls under sixteen years of age. Adult members provide these circles with ap- propriate entertainment and instruction that Polish folk dances are perpetuated through formal Classes of instructions arranged by many of the organizations for their members. will inspire girls to strive for the ideals worthy of womanhood. Social activities, which have as their aim the development of social graces, are also sponsored by the Cir- cles. All this is done voluntarily and with- out hope of reward, the mainspring being the Christian desire to serve Cod and country. The Union of Polish Women of America issues insurance certificates from 35200 to 351,000 for whole life, 20 year payment life, 20 year endowment, endowment at 65, and paid up at 65. The Unionls assets as of January 1, 1955, amounted to 3734,646.06g the valuation sur- plus was 3516234-9.67. The amount of in- surance in force as of the same date was 32,- 248,750 Cadultl and 35687200 fjuniorj. Officers for 1955 were: Mrs. Helene ,lan- oski, President, Mrs. Helen J. Bagdzinski, Secretary, Mrs. Czeslawa Lewandowski, Treasurer, Gabriel J. Kraus, M.D., Medical Examiner, and Mr. V. E. Balukiewicz, Gen- eral Counsel. The Union's Home Office is 2662 E.

The same may be said of the Poles who have made their home in America: they, too, are gregarious. Wheth- er by nature or by intention, they, likewise, are joiners. According to the late Miecislaus Haiman, the leading chronicler of the Polish past in America, "there are well over 10,000 Polish societies of all types in this country, devoted to most diversified activities: religious, cul- tural, charitable, beneficial . . .,' This was written seven years ago. Since then, a host of new organizations founded by the refugee immigrants of World War ll has come into existence to swell the total considerably. The fourteen fraternals briefly reviewed in these pages constitute a very small frac- tion of the organizations founded and main- tained by Americans of Polish descent. Nevertheless, they make up a most important fraction for several reasons. First of all, as a group the fourteen frater- nals contain more members than any other fourteen Polish American organizations that may be mentioned. Second, their combined financial assets far outweigh those of any other group of fourteen organizations in the Polish American community. Yet these are by no means the most signi- ficant facts about the fourteen fraternals. Their size and wealth are exceeded by the varied and extensive cultural activities they promote. These fraternal organizations sponsor and support most of the social undertakings among Po'lish Americans that are not directly inspired and maintained by parochial or other ecclesiastical agencies. In addition, they contribute considerably to religious projects. Two organizations fthe Polish Ro- man Catholic Union and the Polish Union of the United States of North Americaj allot a specific sum of money each year to the 01'- chard Lake Seminary, others fthe Polish Na- tional Alliance of Brooklyn, the Polish Wom- en's Alliance of America, the Union of Pol- ish W'omen in America, and the Polish Bene- ficial Associationj do this periodically. On the other hand, mentioned it should be that, irrespective whether the individual headquar- ters of an organization contribute or not, most of the lodges of the fourteen organizations respond generously whenever they are ap- proached with an appeal by the Friends of the Catholic Seminary at Orchard Lake. As a result, to quote Miecislaus Haiman again, they "exert a decisive influence on all phases of Polish organized life in America." In all this, the fourteen fraternals offer a concrete illustration of the highest ideals of intercultural cooperation and free enterprise. By successfully blending business acumen with humanitarian sympathy, they make in- surance not only a means of creating wealth, but also an opportunity of putting the finer things of life within the reach of many. By transforming cultural barriers into bridges, they help to enrich America as well as the immigrant to the mutual benefit of both. On this account alone, if on no other, the fraternals deserve a lasting and honored place in American life. United Polish Women of America - Chicago 11 ,gm QW? li S3 0 , ' dkbu, .,,,.

Its roman- esque style of architecture and exquisite mosaic replica of the miraculous picture of Our Lady of Czestochowa are a contribution to American Ecclesiastical Art. The fact that the grotto is the only one of its kind in America adds to its importance.
