The Arts Festival We all certainly were exhausted fromithe Arts Festival, but anyone would agree it was a success. I don't think we realized that Sole - bury School could produce such an abundance of art. ' A i ' We can't have a year round Arts Festival- at least it's doubtful. c But it would be ve ry possible to have bits and piecesof it all year. Mr. Mellor could continue his efforts and have paintings, graphics, and sculpture in all of the buildings. Not only would this improve the appearance of the campus, but would also give the students a new respect for it. Without too much trouble, the students could put together an abundance of musical acts which could be shown on Friday and Saturday nights. The teachers could also participage in these shows and increase the "student-teacher relationshipj nnlcltcnlnmnlrr .c - A eav- It is evident from Mr. Day's variety show that the re is an abundance of skit-writing talent among the students. Skits could be de- veloped and shown on weekend nights or dur- ing assembly. They might not be "Beyond the Fringe" caliber, but they certainly would be enjoyable. Mr. I..evin's drama group could give us some readings . Itis evident that, when supplied with the incentive and facilities, the student body has a ve ry active interest in the arts. Without' too much effort, the large amount of potential talent stored in the student body could contin- ually burgeon all year into kinetic talent. o 0 0 An article in the last Pundit pulled hard for bare feet. We hope the author was pulling our leg, for we find this a little hard to believe. The article recognized the need for shoes in the classroom and the dining hall, but when it advocated five -toed splendors in the grass, it . showed that it didn't know the reall reason for' wearing shoes. i A policy of selective shoe -wearing advocates the wearing of shoes only to preserve appearances when other people are around. It also advocates the slipping off of shoes when no one is looking or, at least, when no one is dis- approving. A policy of selective nudity makes as much sense. Wear your clothes in the .class- room and the dining hall, and slip them off when no one is looking or, at least, when no one is dis approving . You answer, "Ridiculous! It's just not the same . " But isn't it? O O O A THE BUCKS COUNTY GAZETTE . . . For Those Who Can Read THE NEW DELAWARE BOOKSHOP 49 W. Ferry St., New Hope, Pa. 862-2452 Question: Answers: Question: Answe rs : ! I 4 What or who made you decide to become a teacher? After seven years in business, I came to realize that the values of business were not my values but that the values of education were. --Mr. Cookman An opportunity to teach part-time came my way when I was nineteen years old. I found it was the one thing I wanted to do. --Mr. Orrick I needed the money. --Mr. Stone ' What made me become a teacher and eventually a guidance counse- lor is my strong concern about the need to improve educational oppor- tunity. Never before in the history of our country has the improvement of educational services for all citi- zens been more important in determining the future greatness of America. --Mr. Powell I had always wanted to be in teach- ing but industrial rewards are considerably greater. Recent events solved my problem. --Mr. Laporta Teaching is one way of earning money honestly while being free to work on other projects. Ficklei finger of fate. --Mr. Mellor What are your main criticisms Qfavorable or unfavorablel of the N Solebury student body? 1. One major complaint. Student body is given to "griping" about drudgery. Z. Student body of Solebury has, collectively, great energy, creativity, curiosity and ability. They do exhibit, at moments which matter, loyalty to the school --Mr. Duffy It is very well rounded and un- preppy. The students as indi- viduals are usually quite inde- pendant. It is too interscholastic sports minded and a large part of it thinks non-participation in Town Meeting, Friday Night programs, clean up is a sign of individuality. But having seen the enthusiasm, excitement, and interest in the Arts Festival I begin to believe my opinion about non-participation requires some revision. - --Mr. Leshan .

I feel most comfortable in the most informal class I can get away with and still exercise control. It is more satisfying to have a class which occasionally gets out of hand than one which is docile and unresponsive. --Mr. Berkeley Should a teacher admit his mis- takes to his students ? Can he possibly do anything else? Qand still call himself a teacher'?j - -Mr. Ammirati A teacher should always admit his mistakes and if he got away with a blooper should call attention to it. A wrong notion may otherwise be taken as fact. --Mr. Laporta What are the advantages and dis advantages of teaching at a private school in comparison to a public school? - i : I All advantages except perhaps money, and lately that too. More teach-- less cop ffewer students, less, busy work, greater freedom, greater proportion of bright kids, etc. , etc. y sfrfiiifw s f E W The answers to this question are too well-known and familiar. --Mr. Berkeley Question: Why did you decide to teach at Solebury? , Answers: I filled a vacancy "just for the time being. " That was seven years ago. --Mr. Callanan . Messrs. Shaw, Lathrop, Erskine and I decided to start a school QSoleburyj and hoped we could create a good one. --Doc Washburn I liked the Art Studio. --Miss Hampson It was where I got a job. --Mr. Stone Stars. --Mr. Mellor PARSON'S RADIO 8: MUSIC CENTER 63 Coryell St. , Lambe rtville, N.

If you are going to wear shoes or clothes only because people want you to, then join a nudist camp and uphold your principles. We wear shoes and cloihes for definite reasons, the first: protection from the ele- ments. The second: consideration for others-- we don't like to go around attracting a lot of undue attention. Some people can't.concen- trate when they see a wistful face carried around by naked feet! The third: respect for ourselves--we like to believe that we can think about something besides our bodies and our own comforts. We wear shoes and clothes for this last reason because we try to keep our- selves under control. We attempt to be some- thing other than slightly higher animals dir- ected by passions and suggestions. We try to know what is beyond our superficial, finite bodies.

"Pardon rne'J he said, but a'ren't you the one that was ahead of me in the peace march in'58 ?" r "Peace march of '58, " I said. "No, I don't think so. Matter of fact, no, because that was when I had my tonsils out and I ' wasn't in any that year. " I "That's funny, " he muttered. "I could swear you're the one. I remember your knees. They had those exact same scars. " "Oh, wait a minute! " I exclaimed. "Yes, I was in' one in April or May, I don't remember You mean that one ? " c. F. MARTIN Guitars Mandolins Ukes THE BUCKS COUNTY GAZETTE . . . For Those Who Can't Read V CWe have picturesj "May," he said. "We marched around the oil tank and down to the mail box. I think there was a black snake in it and a couplbe of rabbits too. I remember my wife couldn't make it because she was just getting over a cold. Had a frog in her throat", he said chuck- ling. -.1 -.. "I've forgotten.. . . Who made the posters for it?" Iasked. "We sent away for them." "Oh yeah. And afterwards I used the back of mine for my science project. " "Say," he said, "I been thinking of getting up another group. Maybe march for ban the bomb, or lower taxes or something. Got any ideas ? " "Well, last time we did peace, and that's sorta like ban the bomb, so lets not do that again. I kind of think integration might be fun. The re are a lot of good songs out for that sort of thing now. " "All right, and this time we can go up the road, maybe up to the stop sign, then over to the junk heap, around to the bridge, and follow the stream back to the pond again. I'l1 get my wife to fix a little something for us to eat, " "And I'll see what I can do about getting copies of some integration songs. If I can't find any I might be able to revise some ofthe: words to the ban the bomb tunes." The frog was really getting excited. His air sac was throbbing wildly. "And I'll get a bunch of the pond guys. The black snake goes over to the field sometimes, so I'll see if I can get him to tell the gang over there about it. And maybe I still have the address of the place where we got the posters." "Yeah, but let's not ask those beavers. They always take these things too seriously. " "Oh, don't worry, I won't.

The following are what we feel to be the best and most interesting answers to the teach- er opinion poll which we .submitted to all teach- ers. Not all the teachers replied: some denied, while others just never got around to answering the questions. Every teacher who did submit his opinions is represented here with one or more of his answers. 4 Question: Do you think a teacher should voice his opinions in class ? Answers: Yes. --Mr. Callanan , Only on matters which pertain to the class he is teaching. 1 --Mr. Ammirati . No. , --Mr. Stone Question: What is the most important thing a teacher can offer a student? Answers: A dread of superficiality. --Mr. Leshan ' The most important thing a teach- er can offer a student is to try and inculcate in him an eagerness to learn, and a real desire to find out all he can about the world and the people in it. Furthermore a teach- er should try to set an example as a person of integrity and sympathy. --Doc Washburn A395-llgltiulii --Mr. Stone I I ' A teacher, excited by his subject, can offer a sharing in this excite- ment to his students. If excitement can somehow be conveyed to the student, the most important aim in education will have been accomplish- ed. I --Mr. Berkeley s A good example. --Mr. Cookrnan Question: How informal should a class be? Answers: A class should be conducted on an informal basis. However, students should not misconstrue informality as license to revert to juvenile manners of behavior. --Mr. Powell VERNER GREEN 8: SON - Lambertville, N. J. Hush Puppies U. S. Keds NEW HOPE-SOLEBURY CO-OP 46 S. Main St. New Hope, Pa. 862.-2091 "Read some more. Kids who read get into college a lot easier. " How many parents have tossed this "pearl" at their children?" "It's so important. Waste your time now, and you'll pay later. " It's true. Good novels help anyone. But most students realize that in order to keep with a novel they must read at least thirty pages a day. With all their outside reading assignments, not to mention regular home- work, this is practically impossible. If a student who really wishes to read good material can't find time, there is an alternative. In the library are many well written periodicals. We do not think all periodicals are well writteng some of the most widely read are not worth the time of an intelligent person. The average student who contemplates reading a. periodical ambles up to the maga- zine rack and quickly skims the line of maga- zines. He picks up a magazine which happens to have an attractive icover, removes it from the rack, and spends twenty minutes absorbed in it. The knowledge he abstracts is often negligible. He is back where he started. Most people don't notice the dull look- ing, dust covered periodicals which may go for days untouched. Some are "hogwash," but as many or more are well written maga- MV' u s ' K ions and are written with good taste. We suggest: Harper-'s, Atlantic, New York Times Book Review and Magazine, and the New Yorker. If you,haven't"discovered" E115-e yet, why not try one ? o o o X LAMBERTVILLE HOUSE - Lambertville, N. J.

"By the way, " he said, "what does integration mean ? " Peggy Hawthorn 0 O 0 Solebury School, being located in a valley, seems to have become the reservoir for the immediate area. Nothing can be done to eliminate this problem, but there does not have to be mud just because there is water. What is now emud could become mere wet grass' with a lithtilgn student consideration. Feet, walk ing through wet grass, makes mud--in abun- dance. ' There is no need to place sentries at all mud patches to make sure students walk around them, but it may become necessary to pave all areas where mud is now located. This wouldn't contribute to the school's rural appearance, but it seems that nothing else can be done, save one alternative: The student body could become more thoughtful. If, with- out faculty prodding, the students could re- A strict themselves to the walks, the costly pav- ing could be eliminated. So, instead of using a quick route through a mud patch, sacrifice a minute or two from between classes and walk on the walks. O 0 O THE COUNTRY SQUIRE - New Hope, Penna, Casual Clothes and Sportswear for men. PHIL'S SHOES 12. Union St., Lambertville, N. J. "Shoes for the entire family." In the last issue of "Pundit" there appeared an article with this statement: "We spend too much time trying to figure out how to appease the Communists and coexist with them. Let's spend more time trying to figure out how to defeat them. " This is quite a common reaction on the part of Americans to the present situation in the world, with the Soviet Union and Red China seeming to threaten the welfare of the other nations, including the United States. However, the American critics who keep talking about defeating the enemy, never tell us how this is to be accomplished. By threats, backed up by our military might? By attack or aggression, almost surely leading to World War III with nuclear bombs ? Certainly this would be the worst of all possible evils. Hundreds of millions of people killed, the earth laid waste, and no nation the victor in any true sense . The writer of the article in question goes on to say that what we need is a "policy of rationalism and strength. " This seems to mean that we should try to carry out a reason- able policy, and at the same time maintain our strength. Very good as far as it goes, but what sort of policy is rational or reasonable in our revolutionary world today? If a threat or show of force is not reasonable, what al- te rnative is there except to try to coexist with other nations, with as much understanding and as little friction as possible ? As the writer admits, peace "is something all people should strive for. " Then why does he state a moment later that peace groups are naive '? Now, a final comment on the United States as the leader of the free world. If the nations of the free world want to follow our lead, that is one thingg and if all goes well, we may take some satisfaction in it. But if, for e xample, the British want to sell buses to Cuba, or DeGau11e decides to recognize Red China, both contrary to our policies, what pos- ition is the United States to take ? Are we to rebuke publicly our long-term allies and tell them how they should act, as if we were the boss ? At the end of World War II the United States assumed the leadership of the free world because we were the only strong nation in a position to do so. Now the situation is changed and other nations have their own ideas as to the best policy to pursue. It would seem that the best we can do at present is to try to persuade other friendly nations to collaborate with us when possible, and for us in turn to try to collaborate with them. Arthur H. Washburn o o o L ,er Mg Happy Birthday, William. It is unfair that the serious sculpture damage which occurred during the Arts Festi- val be attributed to student carelessness and disregard for property Two of the four pieces that were damaged were situated on stands whose tops and bottoms were each connected by a column of wood. The bottom was no larger than the topg thus, when a piece of sculpture was placed on the stand, the latter became, top-heavy. None of the pieces of sculpture was wired to its stand. If they had been wired, the sculpture would have been prevented from being bumped off its stands. It would be unfair solely to accuse the art department of carelessness in not wiring the sculpture or providing adequate stands, just as it is unfair solely to accuse the students of carelessness. The sculpture damage should be thought of as an unfortunate incident, and it should not be used as a prime example of stu dihiffc O O O NEW HOPE PHARMACY New Hope, Penna.

Jude Cahillane, 0.S.B DEDICATION A warm kindness, a fatherly understanding, a Christ-like generosity, the ability to solve our problems in the light of inspired wisdom--but a few of the characteristics which mark our Father Jude as a priest according to thehheart ofaGod. The Mass, the Altar, the Con- fessional-the channels through which Father has ministered to us that peace of soul which transcends human understanding. By his ownadmission, the morning Sacrifice is the most important action of his day, and the well-spring whence he draws deeply the graces of which we are the indirect recipients, as his students, penitents and co-ojerers. And what is the medium by which these graces are channelled to us? Chiefly the fruit of the Holy Spirit so 1 evident in F ather's manner. For these and for countless unrecorded blessings we gratefully dedicate this 1955 Edition of VERITAS to Reverend Father Jude, 0.S.B. 1 .K . XR, K X2 'W SQ X. . N Wx..- A XXQTSX .X .

Is Christ's promise of two thousand years ago to be barren in our lives? A nd who will give us a definition of this "peace" and a means to apprehend it and make it our own? Such thoughts crowded our minds as we set about developing the theme for "Veritas 1955", and our earnest seeking and mental ruminating brought us inevitably to the gay little jigure of the thirteenth century 'who skipped around the countryside singing "Peacef Good people, Cod give you peace!" Did St. Francis wish for his neigh- bors the rnere cessation of strife-a pleasant lull between the intermittent battles of the era? Partly, but his prayer went far deeper. His idea of peace signihed a state of soul that would not be affected by external circum- stances: sickness, health., prosperity, "hard times", or national securitlv. .Tlan was to possess it jirmly, surely, even perpetually, but the price was high. lt included the great struggle of ridding one's life of sin, of allowing the "new man" of grace to triumph. over the flesh, of surrendering eirerything, above all, on.e's will, to the divine Lover who would then establish. His sweet reign in the docile soul. This last surrender was, and remains, a feat for spiritual heroes,but Francis knew, and would teach us, that all Christians are supposed to be just that. W e have tried to learn the lesson. We know we are able to strive after and lay hold of that peace which is our rightful inheritance, since we are the children of the Saints. And in possessing it ourselves ever more fully, our one desire will be to pass it on to others, and to repeat with all sincerity: "Lord, nzake me an instrument of Thy peace." i 4 W 5, . ,X W -K V N 3, - K s . 1 ,L KA, v .- ,t ..,, K vu - K ' if K 4 -v. --W .:.

We, who had the pleasure of a visit from her during our high school days, revere her maternal, tactful and courageous nature. God seems to have endowed Mother with special wisdom and forbearance-for we have witnessed the achievement of undreamed of cultural and spiritual goals. It is our fervent hope that we always tender a filial aifection for one who, from afar, has been very near us, in spirit and motherly solicitude. IO St. Francis' hymn of praise and thanksgiving, extolling God's goodness for giving us "Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Brother Fire and Sister Water," so pure and chaste, seems to reecho again and again through the life and works of Mother Vitalina. Small in stature, but great in zeal for the glory of God, Mother has labored tire- lessly to build up Mount St. John Academy materially and spiritually. For many years, first as Sister and then as Superior, Mother guided, comforted and directed with the solicitude and interest characteristic of the true Spouse of Christ. In later years, when our thoughts return to our beloved Alma Mater, it will be with deep gratitude and appreciation that we shall remember Mother Vitalina, who, in a hidden way, was responsible for the Catholic education and training we received here.

Eva has endeared her- self to her classmates and her innate simplicity and amusing question, "What page?" are obvious proof that she is very much a part of our class. Eva's ambitions are divided between Trenton and Seton Hall, and the mere suggestion of anything Italian will recall an amusing tale of life in Bari, her home-town. Eva is fast becoming Americanized and we are sure that her enthusiasm and diligence will make her a real credit to Mount St. John. 1 2 2 ' 2 s Mission Club Treasurer 3 Clee Club 1, 2, 3, 4 Dramatic Club Treasurer Junior Prom 3 School Choir 1, 2, 3, 4- Marshal 4- Literary Club 2, 3 Class Vice-President 4- Assistant Artist, Mountain Echoes 2 Minstrel 3 Exim yudamaapa "Coop" with her positively natural blond streak and engaging brown eyes is very much a part of Mount St. John. The years spent at the Academy have given Ethna a dignity and graciousness of which we can be justly proud. She laughs often and whispers constantly, but we have discovered in her a more serious side. Nursing is her ambi- tion, rooted in Christian Charity and self sacrifice. We know that Ethna will bring the strength of Christ's mercy and kindness to her profession, brightening the days of her patients. 28 QQ' t -ff .Y School Choir 4 Junior Prom 3 Typist 3 Clee Club 4- Athletic Association 3, 4 14m Zelede Ann is the result of a delightful conglomeration of jet black hair and mischievous brown eyes and an irr 'bl ' l epressx e gigg e which is inclined to burst forth at the oddest times.

Connie of the short bo d 1' ht brown e es blushes easily and smiles with even less effort. Her favorite conversational topic is Gladstone, an ig y a little town somewhere nearby. When she speaks of her home-town, she can almost make one forget its slight pro- . . . . . . d portions. She is well known for her sincere cooperation in any project we have undertaken, and has malntalne a good scholastic record, in spite of her poor health, a cross she bears with tranquillity and patience. The gem of journalism, an appreciative reader of worthwhile books, a decided Poe fan with a somewhat philo- sophical mind, and a quasi contemplative is our Marilyn. Her leisure time is generally spent in the library, for she believes in fulfilling her oiiice of assistant librarian faithfully. A comparison of our editor-in-chief with any of the modern writers, would be but a modest recognition of her merit as an essayist and short story writer. Yet Miss Dolcey enjoys her coke and cookies, dancing and television and her frequent week-ends to the Metropolis of Liberty Corner, with the well known laddie, pet of Kathie McHugh.

A whole new life began for us on that clear, September day, 1951, when we entered the building which was to be home for the next four years. The school seemed so enormous that we were afraid to get lost, even before school had officially started! After the first few days, we gained enough self- assurance to begin to worry about the event which is the highlight of every freshman year-Initiation!-and did we look ridiculous!-cold-creamed and hath-robed, as though' we had just risen from a not-too-sound sleep! We were frightened at first, but became determined to go through with this first ordeal-and soon it was but a memory tucked away in our beloved Senior Album. School soon began in earnest and each day brought new surprises, and friendships were formed which became the strong bond hold- ing our class together. ' The retreat stands out as the most beautiful of all memories. The peace that descended on us, as the Papal Blessing was bestowed, remained to guide our yet feeble steps along the path of "higher education." Then came the Christmas Season, complete with gifts, parties, fond goodbyes and lVlidnight Mass, a glorious vacation, our return to school, and the Days of Judgment: Exams. The ordeal over, we again turned to thoughts of joy, which became more and more plentiful, as spring was ushered in and the smell of newly-mowed grass brought light- ness to feet and to hearts-a light- nessnot defeated by the threat of the "Finals.,' The exams passed even more quickly than before, and secret smiles on our faces betrayed our success. As we said "Good- bye," to our teachers, we breathed sighs of relief and we promised each other never to forget this "first yearf' - As 4'Sophs,', our shyness gone, we returned to the large stone build- ing, with a new confidence, for now we felt as though we were a part of that beautiful edifice. The initia- tion of newly-met freshmen was our assignment and our first class meeting a conspiracy against the tnlsuspcarting freshies. The costumes were un- believable, the formulated dialogue to be recited at the foot of each "noble Sophomore," nonsense, and our hilarity, a mixture of humor and nostalgia. Winter came swiftly and soon the "Mount" became a wonderland of ice and snow. With the Christmas Season came the usual round of parties. gifts and good wishes, filled with the joy or comraderie. The vacation commenced, and cries of "Merry Christmas," and "See you next year," rang through the halls. When classes were resumed, we returned to a different sort of world--a world of ice, encasing our school in a crystal wonder. Still the snow came a11d one cold day, we awoke to a most surprising fact . . . we were snowbound! "No School Today!" was the joyous shout and rusty sleds were pulled out and mittens pulled on. Soon the slopes of Mount St. John were dotted with figures sledding, making snow- men, tossing snowballs, 'til faces were ruddy and eyes bright. Ever so slowly the cold, snowy winter evolved i11to spring and quite suddenly, hirds were chirping, buds peeking and the scent of springtime brought a lethargy, a spring fever into the classrooms and halls. We soon tired of books and vaca- tion was upon us. We said Ngoodhyesi' in the wondrous anticipation of our future year as "Juniors" In September we returned as npperclassmen and were 5'Big Sisters" to the new freshmen. Immediately we plunged into the seasonal spirit with a dance, 'gSpook Session," a ghostly affair. with witches, goblins, owls, cobwebs and, it has been re- ported, a bat who enjoyed the dance so much that he is yet perched on a rafter awaiting the return of spooky festivities. The Christmas season brought more than the usual surprises. As wc tore away the paper from a tiny box we had received, the room echoed with squeals and squeaks of joy and the longed-for blue and gold school rings were on our fingers. The high school was invaded by the juniors who were flashing rings and demanding admiration. Time passed quickly and one day in late winter, we were delighted to hear of a proposed trip to Washington, D. C. We immediately O.K.'ed it and from that time until we stood, bag and baggage in front of the U. S. Capitol building, we spoke of nothing else. The three days spent in the Nation's Capitol were among the most memorable of our lives. Together with the Seniors, we travelled over the city, inspected the most famous signs and several of lesser fame, toured the city by night, were thrilled by the simple magnificence of the Lincoln lVlemorial and inspired by the words of the greatpman in whose honor it was erected. We al- most met the President and had a lot of fun and excitement trying lo engineer that allair. We left our mark at the Willa rd llotel. formerly known as "the home of Presidents." We took loads of snapshots, and wore out at least three cameras tak- ing unusual snaps of classmates unaware! We piled into the bus. wishing we could remain a bit long- er, while our more practical school- mates Hled memories and discussed with animation various nondescript "materia.', MZWGGJGJ 0fm7wa2 :aah Zuma 64146544 l sf The homeward bound journey brought with it a new surprise. As we neared home, we realized that spring had arrived and with it, the realization of a dream-the Junior Prom! The next few weeks were spent in wistful anticipation, planning, worrying, decorating, hoping and praying that our Prom would be the best yet. Time passed quickly and as the Prom drew near, Fatima Hall was in a perpetual state of gleeful uproar, and certain homes about the countryside were scenes of furious battles with lace and pins, supervised by weird-looking creatures with tight pincurls and thick cold cream. At last the night arrived and the girls with whom we had mopped floors and cracked jokes emerged as story-book princesses, amid a flurry of net and talfeta, looking twice as lovely as any fairy princess. There was a magic spell in the dim lights, the soft music, and the 'strange underwater creatures had marvelous tales to tell of the unforgettable night. The following days were spent in romantic reverie that was broken only by the impending peril of "Exams" For once we welcomed the usually dreaded three days, for passing these tests meant the attainment of the long-sought and almost re- spected title of Seniors. The last summer passed too slowly for us. There was so much to be done, so much joy to be packed into this last year, that we feared we would never have had time to accomplish all we had planned. But, as ever, September rolled around again and we greeted each other with "Hi Senior." "Isn't it wonderful?" Then in rapid succession we were assigned to the duties that are the honor, and sometimes the despair of every senior class. The Marshal Squad, the Yearbook Staff, and for a favored few, the Student Council. The Yearbook kept .us busy collecting ads and writing far into the night, but we welcomed the weariness with knowl- edge that we were doing something. We were showing our school spirit and creating a monument of our class to be handed down to those who came after. As seniors, we came to know the meaning of fulfillment, and while rejoicing in our "coming of age," we were yet afraid. We feared the unknown, the world we would have to face, and most of all, our own weakness and inability. The Retreat seemed as an oasis of peace in a desert of uncertainty and fear. We prayed as we had never before, to know the will of God in our lives, and to find that spiritual certainty which has eluded us thus far. We returned to the harsh rea- lities of life, fortified to seek our places in the world. unafraid. Each action, this year, was performed with the realization that this was the last time and we threw ourselves with new vigor into all activities, determined to live each moment of our last year to its hilt, so as to treasure it forever. That Graduation Day is close, became more obvious each day. The name cards and graduation portraits arrived and were given out to the eager Seniors who spent the following weeks signing and giving out pictures and cards, till each could legitimately claim a case of "writer's crampf' Through the practices and fitting sessions, the College Exams and the special talks ran an undercurrent of excitement and anticiption, until Sunday, June l9. dawned and High School Com- mencement, the dream of four years, hecame a fulfillment .... As we prepare to leave our Alma Mater, with a tinge of sadness and a veritable trunk- ful of precious memories, our thoughts turn to yon, dear under classmen. Our parting gift? The joys and the sorrowsg the worries and the gaietyg and, lastly, "the fulfillment of those happy years." Seize them: profit by themg enjoy them to the full, so that one day, your reminiscing may hte as rich and satis- fying as ours.

Before them was a tableau of the hrst apparition of G'The Lady" to Juan Diego at Gaudelupe. This was the beginning of the entertainment for the end of the lVIarian Year, presented by the high school students of Mount St. John Academy. For weeks the girls had worked on the productiong learning lines, interpreting them, and adorning the already beautiful Marian Tribute with choral speaking, and hymns so that Our Lady would be pleased with their gift. The play itself, written by Marilyn Dolcey, was more beautiful because of the devotion with which the girls prepared and perfected their token of love for Mary at the end of her year. All too soon, it seemed, the moment arrived and backstage echoed nervous whispers of last minute advice. Then the lights dimmed and the play was on! After the first few moments of apprehension, the play took on, for both the actresses and the audience, a sort of grace and loveliness that could not be entirely the result of human effort. lt was a simple tale, the story of the coming of the Queen of heaven to Juan Diego, a humble Mexican Indian, the lowest of the lowly, and his sub- sequent sufferings and struggles to fulfill her desire to have a church built in her honor on the hill of Tepeyac. He is first abused by his affectionate, but highly critical Aunt, Maria, and then consoled by his crippled friend, Thomas, who beseeches Juan to ask the Lady to cure him, and then begs Juan not to ask, but to tell the Virgin, uthat l love her, and that I believe." The climax comes when .luan's beloved Uncle, Bernardino falls deathly ill, and Juan is sent, to the mission to call a priest to his Uncle's side. He tries to avoid Our Lady, in order to save time. Our Lady stops him and, on his request, heals both Bernardino and Thomas, she then gives Juan a bouquet of roses, blooming in mid-winter, as a sign for the Bishop. When Juan opens his tilma to show the Bishop, the roses fall out and reveal a miraculous picture of Our Lady painted on the rough cloth. After the last scene of the play, the high school girls, dressed in their customes formed a procession that wound through the corridors and up to the chapel for' Benediction. They were joined by the greatly moved members of the P. T. A. Benediction followed, a fitting close to our Marian Tribute, and, as the magnificent words of the Marian Year Prayer rang through the chapel, we felt sure that Our Lady was pleased with the offering of her children, for a great peace and deep joy filled the hearts of the congregation, as the chapel echoed the phrases: "Thou art the glory, Thou art the Joy, Thou art the honor of our people.
