750 North Wabash Avenue
Chicago 11, Illinois
As in the tongues of fire that
burned away the ignorance and
tears of God's apostles, the Sacred
Dove has burned a path of knowl-
edge and courage to the doors of
With each caressing flame, He
kindles the tire of Christian warmth
and loyalty that swells within these
walls and aftably fills our hearts.
In acknowledgment of this work
of love, we dedicate this album ot
memories to you, O Holy Spirit,
patron ot wisdom and strength.

School. He guides our spiritual and social activities. Rev. Robert Herne mm-Counselor
Rev. William Goedert .... ....,.. C ounselor
Expert help comes from Father Though newly arrived, Father
Herne as he makes the rounds Goedert has already made his
of the Square. way into the heart ol the student
body as counselor and friend.
Known around school as a form-
er treshmen religion teacher,
Father Banahan now confines
his dealings with students to
friendly talks and good advise.
Clothed in a mantle ot love, bound by the cincture of
service, they are to us the parents of our spiritual lite, and
god-parents of our fun.
Their hands are ever outstretched to guide and help the
students as they Wend their way through lite.
Love and respect come naturally to them.
Who are they?
Our faculty, our diocesan priests and the Sisters ol
Father Gubbin's youthful zest
and natural charm help make
freshmen religion a delightful,
as well as instructive period.
His hearty laugh and winning
ways have endeared Father
Regan to seniors as he readies
them tor the years after grad-
His quiet wit and "ready and
willing to help" manner have
gained Father Murtaugh the
love and respect ot the sopho-
A far-reaching love of the Holy
Spirit and the students about
him, facilitate Father McAvoy's
duties as instructor and friend
of the juniors.
A whispered prayer for help from
each and every student on this day
marking a new adventure, a Wave
and a clasp of a fdendly hand not
seen for so long, bright faces vvhich
reHectthejoy ofthe beginning ofan-
other school year, a year of promise
and hope,a yearofsenousstudy and
good times as eager feet shuffle up the
well-worn stairs of our school. With
each step the halls vibrate and re-echo
with happy voices eager to return.
After attending the Mass ot the Holy Ghost in
the Cathedral, Elaine Feliksik, Anne Duray, El-
eanor Zabiaka, Kay Keating, Marie Beckman,
and Rozanne Bertucci lead the student body to
witness the yearly blessing of the school.
On this tirst day, the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Patrick I.
Hayes, the Rev. Iohn McAvoy and the Rev. Wil-
liam Gubbins begin the beautiful custom ot the
blessing of the school. It is in this ceremony
that we beg and entreat the Holy Spirit to
shower graces and aid on the plans and dreams
of the coming year.
"Ring in the new and ring out the
old!" and that's just what junior Patricia
Hanlon is doing as she formally an
nounces the official beginning of an
other anticipated school year. The shrill
summons causes vacation-weary stu
dents to clamor toward silent classrooms
ready and anxious to continue where
they left ott last year.

Long after the gray walls of our school are demolished
we shall always remember the lamiliar rooms that we studied I
in, the toot-scarred floors, "Old Facelul' at one end ol the
hall, and the Phoenix Nest at the other. The precious mo-
ments ot decorating the classroom Christmas tree, the senior I
dinner and dance, our trip, the prom, and May Coronation , l
will never be forgotten. ,Q - ,
Amid these joys we encountered sorrow, for one, who lt
laughed and cried with us, now knows the heavenly warmth 4 jg
of his Master's smile. CQII
Our love for the Cathedral and school will travel with us l l,
as we face the world courageously equipped with the knowl-
edge and wisdom obtained from our teachers, the devoted ,' gl

, In Memoriam
Arthur Miller, senior, took leave of his friends and
family to meet his Lord and Savior in the garden of
Paradise, on Friday. Ianuary 27.
Throughout his three years at Mundelein, Art devot-
ed much of his time to sports and singing. Dressed from
head to toe in the red and white attire of Santa Claus,
Art captured the hearts of the first and second graders
at the Tiny Tot Christmas party.
His iovial smile blending warmly with his loveable
personality, had and never will cease -to glow.
In the comforting words oi Father McAvoy, who
delivered the funeral sermon, "Art is now with His
Creator and has already learned the tenderness oi His
I -A, 'K
An extra flight of stairs, the
wonder of new subjects, the
thrill of finally earning the
title, "upperclassmen", small
things such as these create the
atmosphere of junior year.
Happy days crammed full
with thoughts ot lessons,
assemblies and extra-curricu-
lar activities, greeted us at
We grew spiritually, men-
tally, physically, We found
new strength in retreat, days
of recollection, Mass, Holy
Communion and the recitation
of the rosary.
Our enthusiasm has blos-
somed into determination as
We strive to possess the quali-
ties needed as future leaders
oi our school.

Snuggled tightly into a corner, as

fascination of pinning and pasting

gallies, cropping pictures, assigning
and reassigning stories and counting
out headlines to perfection.
With a pencil, scissors, and paste
jar in one hand, and cake and coke
in the other, the editors meet their
deadlines. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with
overtime on Sunday, the staff, under
the direction of Sister Mary Sharon,

With Mundelein's goal posts in sight, Fenwick's line surges ahead to
discover a stiff wall of Pirate defense awaiting them. Despite many
such efforts on our part, the game was lost by a 14 point margin.
A Pirate attempt to pierce the bricklike Mendel defense falls short
as the ball carrier is snowed under by a deluge of white jersies. Dom
Faraci and lay Emerich race over to lend a helping hand to their be-
sieged buddy, but they arrive too late.
While the scoreboard read 13-13, the Pirates
zipped into Northwestern's territory. ln their
last and final effort to break the stalemate, a
number of ill-fated penalties were called against
them, and the score stayed stationary for the
remainder of the game.

necessary first down yardage for the Pirates. The ac-

Pirates lost by a score of 20 to 6.
Quarterback Ray Gaast sinks back to pass, but is
