The Class of 1955
135 Cleveland Avenue
Buffalo, New York
DUCATION consists essentially in preparing man for what he must he and for what he must do here be-
low. In order to attain the perfect end for which man was created, it is clear that there can be no true ed-
ucation which is not wholly directed to man's last end." This quotation has been taken from Pope Pius
XI's Encyclical on CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OF YOUTH, which emphasizes the importance of instruc-
tion in harmony with the teachings of the Church, "the pillar and ground of truth." We have chosen this
Encyclical as the theme for the ROSARIUM of nineteen hundred fifty-five, since we feel it a complete
statement of the purpose and the work of our four years at Nardin Academy.
The mission of educating us has been three-fold. We have been entrusted to the school by our fami-
lies, who have "an inalienable, inviolable right to educate offspring." Guided by our teachers, "who cher-
ish a pure and holy love for the youth confided to them, " we have been encouraged to follow the path of an
outstanding Christian woman. The State has also played its part in our education. "It is the right and duty
of the State to protect, according to the rules of right reason and faith, the moral and religious education of
youth, by removing public impediments that stand in the way."
Christian education, we have learned, must be four-fold: spiritual, mental, social, physical. Our
school is most assuredly one in which "all the teaching and the whole organization of the school and its
teachers, syllabus and textbook in every branch" have been "regulated by the Christian Spirit, under the de-
votion and matemal supervision of the Church, so that religion may be in truth the foundation and crown of
youths ' entire training . "
Our school has so advanced our intellectual development year by year that we are prepared either to take
our place in the business world or to enter a college of our own choosing. Besides guiding our spiritual and
mental life, our teachers have taken into consideration the necessity of a well-balanced social and physical
program. These activities they have encouraged in such a way as not only to increase the pleasure in our
lives but also to increase, at the same time, our spiritual and mental development.
We of the class of nineteen-fifty-five will be ever mindful of the motto of our Alma Mater: "Pro Christi
Ecclesia totus impendar." In later years, as we look through this ROSARIUM with its references to the En-
cyclical, we know we will be spurred on to attain new heights spiritually, mentally, socially and physically
because we will feel the ever-loving eyes of Alma Mater are still upon us.
DANIEL A. LORD, S.1.
E, the class of nineteen hundred fifty-five, dedicate "Rosarium" to the memory of
Daniel A. Lord, S.j. Through his work in furthering Catholic Action, he has given to the
"Youth of America" a fuller and richer appreciation of their vocation as young Christian stu-
dents and leaders in the modem world. He was truly an apostle in advocating the ideas of
Pope Pius XI on the "Christian Education of Youth."
Hi s Exc ellency
Most Reverend Leo R. Smith, D. D.
Auxiliary Bishop of Buffalo
DUCATION, which is concerned with man as
a whole, individually and socially in the or-
der of grace, necessarily belongs to three soci-
eties"g the family, civil society and the Church.
Each of these societies has a responsibility not
only to protect the right to education, but to con-
tribute and instill knowledge in its members.
Parents have a natural right to educate their
children. However, in the present society, it is
impossible to do so without the help of trained
teachers. Wise parents realize that, through a
a Catholic education, physical, mental and spir-
itual growth is best achieved and the fruits of
this education equip children to take their right-
ful place in society.
The state, realizing the inherent rights of
the family, must protect the right of the parent
to choose freely that type of education which
will most help the child. Furthermore, it pro-
vides supervision whereby a national standard is
established. In New York State, this is done by
the Board of Regents.

Mothers' Council confer with the faculty in the interests of their children.
HE family and the state unite under the
spiritual guidance of the Church. The lat-
ter, conscious of the divine mission, defends
her right as an educator and places at the dis-
posal of parents the means of providing educa-
tion for their children. Here in Buffalo, our
Bishops, Most Reverend joseph A. Burke and
Leo R. Smith, diocesan guides and directors of
Catholic education, have done much to forward
Pope Pius Xl's teachings concerning family,
state and Church as a triple union of educators.
May God bestow His Divine Grace on their ex-
cellent work so that the fruits of Catholic edu-
cation may some day be enjoyed by all.
Most Reverend Joseph Aloysius Burke, D. D.
Bishop of Buffalo
Students test their knowledge in Regents examinations.
"Perfect schools are "All these labor un-
., the result not so much selfishly with zeal
Nh. of good methods as of and perseverance in . . .
good teachers." the direction and
Pius XI formation of youth."
ERFECT schools are the result not so much of good methods as of good teachers, teachers who are
thoroughly prepared and well-grounded in the matter they have to teachg who possess the intellectual
and moral qualifications required by their important officeg who cherish a pure and holy love for the youths
confided to them, because they love jesus Christ and His Church."
How very true is this statement about our own faculty members at Nardin! Our teachers are ever ready
to aid us in our conquests of both heaven and earth. With true understanding, they employ the supernatu-
ral tools: justice, patience, and charity, and laboriously help us in our studies and our personal problems
They encourage and strengthen the students by their examples and by their prayers.
Christ, the Greatest Teacher, has commanded, "Go, teach all nations." In a sense, each pupil is an
individual nation, our teachers have accepted God's command by instructing each one of us. The Nardin
faculty has imparted and will clontinue to impart spiritual and vocational knowledge to help us to try to be
outstanding among God's children.

The night all girls anticipate.
young man according to his way, even when he is old, will not depart from it." This quotation
taken from Pope Pius XI's "Encyclical on Christian Education" symbolizes the growing fruits of
constant education. After four years of training: physical, mental, and spiritual, at Nardin Academy,
we Seniors are now ready to embark on new missions . Many doors will open for us either into the col-
lege or the business world. No matter in what direction we go, our education will remain our own and
the enlarging and the sharing of that education will become a personal responsibility.
The world today needs the well-trained minds as well as the enlightened souls of Catholic laymen
and women. Sound Christian principles need to be made known. It is people like ourselves, graduates
of a Catholic high school, who must share these principles with others and make others conscious of the
need for God in all affairs. The graduates of the class 1955 will enter forty-three different paths, not as
a class but as individuals. Therefore, each one must make her influence felt. Only then will the pur-
pose of Catholic education be realized.
As Seniors, we are not strangers to life, nor are we unaware of the gratitude we owe to God, our Lord
and Creator. Our life, however, up unto the present, has been a "little world." Now, as we reach the
end of four years of high school training, we enter into the commencement of a new life, the world out-
side, a fuller life and a deeper one, lived always, as before, for the glory of God, our Heavenly Creator.

Desiring God's will, they gladly accept it.
Eagerly they await the day they become full-fledged Seniors.
Reading and 'riting and 'rithmetic aren't the only curricula they study.
C haracter-minded, they work daily at improving it.
Laughter is a prominent part of their lives.
'Always be prompt, courteous, and efficient" -- one of their golden rules.
S -incere in their efforts, they take an active part in all projects. '

Mary is their model. their friend, their understanding mother.
Earnestly they hope that their years here will qualify them for heaven.
Nardin Academy claims them with great pride .
HERE is a contradiction to the many jokes about the poor, unfortunate under
classmen and the high, important Seniors. Here at Nardin, true harmony ex
ists, with each group giving due respect to t.he other.
The Iunior Classes
UNIOR year proved to be a busy one both scholastically and socially. The
Latin students had their first encounter with Cicero, orator and statesman.
f"O Tempora, O Mores"J I The business students were busy winning typewrit-
ing and shorthand speed awards. Marilyn Smith gained honors for both herself
and her class in the French National Contest. Felicitations, Marilyn !
Then along came the candy drive and the Catholic Charities appeal. The
juniors were whole-hearted supporters, with homerooms over-reaching their goal.
One of the biggest social events of the year was the junior-Senior Banquet at
the Hotel Markeen. The juniors, acting as hostesses to the Seniors, gave them
an enjoyable evening, one to be tucked away in their "Book of Memories." After
the gala junior-Senior Prom, another highlight of the social season, the year quick-
ly drew to a close. With the confidence gained by three years of success, the jun-
iors await their Senior year.

The Sophomore Classes
HIS year's Sophomore class has been continually active since the first day of
the school year. Early in the year, they sponsored an outdoor barbecue. As
things turned out, the weatherman had different ideas and, thanks to the rain, they
served boiled hot dogs in the gym. In spite of this, everyone enjoyed herself im-
mensely. Next, on january 7th, the Sophomores and juniors held a jointly spon-
sored '55 Frolic. These two classes took care of the entire dance, for which the
girls made all the decorations. The Nardin Sophomores also competed in the na-
tion-wide competitive French and Latin examinations. Numerous Sophomore busi-
ness students took the Gregg Shorthand Complete Theory Test and received awards
and also Gregg Typing awards. Besides this, jean Miceli and Carmella Lazarro
placed first in two divisions of the Courier-Express Foul Shooting Contest. Thus
have the Sophomores distinguished themselves among fellow classes, forecasting
their ability in future years.

The Freshman Classes
N addition to their varied scholastic efforts, the Freshmen held a series of par-
ties and were active in many clubs. In accord with the joyful spirit of Christmas,
the gymnasium rang with the laughter of the Freshmen enjoying themselves at their
Yuletide party. On February 14th, Cupid reigned over their festive Valentine gath-
ering, which everyone enjoyed. The Freshmen were chosen to be hostesses at the
Annual Open House. They very courteously led the eighth grade pupils and their par-
ents on a tour of the school and introduced them to the teachers of the various sub-
jects. They showed their dramatic ability in their stage presentations. Many of
them were active members of the junior Red Cross. They completed their happy
first year at Nardin by having a spring party. Now these girls, once the "school
babies, " are, with anticipation, looking forward to three more active and eventful
years at the Academy.

T is necessary that all the teaching and whole organization of the school and its teachers, syllabus, and
textbooks in every branch, be regulated by the Christian spirit. "
At Nardin Academy, as at every good Catholic school, religion is the "foundation and crown of the
youth's entire training." A sacred atmosphere is evident not only in one forty-five minute period, but in
every class throughout the day. For a school to be Catholic, actually as well as nominally, the student
must be taught Christian principles and their application in every aspect of life.
This Catholic influence is especially apparent in classes such as history. As the pupils study the
methods which man has used in dealing with his fellow man, they are taught the necessity for justice and
charity in these relations. They are guided in their studies to accept the correct attitude toward wealth
and worldly prominence.
In science courses, it is re-emphasized that God made all things and that science and religion must
agree. The dignity of the human body as a temple of the Holy Ghost is mentioned as biology students
study body functions.
In every class, no matter how technical it may be, all work is begun by prayer and offered to God. A
crucifix and other religious articles are always in view. In the words of Leo XIII, every subject is "per-
meated with Christian piety."

HE true Christian does not renounce the activities of this lifeg he does not stunt his natural facul-
ties, but he develops and perfects them, by coordinating them with the supematural. " If one is to
be truly educated, he must leam to make use of all the talents God has given him. When his educa-
tion is concemed only with academic curricula, he is developing only one small part of himself. By
means of the activities here at Nardin, each girl is helped to develop her own particular gifts . With
such a variety of organizations, every student has an equal opportunity to be active in some group and
thus to develop leadership. By working together, whether it is on an athletic team or at a group project
the girls learn that cooperation is a necessary ingredient in success . They are prepared to take their
place in today's complex society.
According to the Christian principles of education as shown in the Encyclical, ALL education, of
which activities are a part, should be "coordinated with the supernatural. "
In the activities, all our work and all our play is supervised and directed so that we will leam how
to glorify God in all aspects of a full and varied life now and in the future.
HE Sodality, under the patronage of the
Immaculate Heart of Mary and Saint
Therese of the Child jesus, is truly a num-
ber of divisions functioning as a single unit.
The three committees, "Mater Dei," the
Sophomore group, "Rosa Mystica, " the
junior section, and "Ianua Caeli" the Sen-
ior division, tackled individual spiritual and
apostolic difficulties and made concerted
efforts to develop Christian social-minded-
ness. They showed themselves strongly
united, moreover, in major projects like
the fall Variety Show, in which all member
schools of the Western New York High
School Sodality Union participated. Each
of the three groups sponsored separate proj-
ects. Chief among these in the fall were
the Clothing Drive for our Indian Missions
and in the spring the "Book Fair," which
gave all the students an opportunity to
order good literature.
The members of each group were free to
join other committees. The Medical Mis-
sions group collected and sent supplies to
Dr. Lanou, who is working with the African
natives. In order to pay for the shipping of
these medicines, the Sophomores united
with the juniors to hold a dance.

HIS year, the Very busy junior Red Cross Members made tray favors
and place mats for various homes and hospitals. At Christmas, a
group sang carols at the Nazareth Home. After Christmas, they pre-
pared a program featuring the culture of Ireland. For Easter, they made
baskets and tray mats for the Children's Hospital. The remainder of the
year they spent in making items in leather, bean bags and cuddly toys.

HE primary purposes of the Art Club are to teach the students appreciation
of beauty and to develop their creative powers. This club provides an op-
portunity for the art student to express herself in many media: water color,
colored chalk, charcoal and clay.
The Club boasts a long list of activities. The girls' paintings of Amer-
ican life were displayed in April at the Albright Art Gallery. Besides this, the
beautiful posters displayed at Open House a.nd part of the scenery for the Sen-
ior play were contributed by the Art Club.

HE "Mardi Gras" was one of the most outstanding
social events of the year. Sponsored by LE
CERCLE FRANCAIS, its festivities affirmed the say-
ing, "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow is Lent !"
The gaily-costumed guests were delighted with the tal-
ent show which was presented aboard a Mardi Gras
"Float . " Mary Grace Muffoletto and Dolores Thomas,
both professional entertainers, and two faculty mem-
bers fGarge and Mower Championj added their names
to the celebrity list.
LE CERCLE FRANQAIS invited French students
from Fallon High to a meeting which proved both prof-
itable and delightful.
These busy members also sponsored "An Evening
in Europe . " Commentated by Doctor Josephine Val-
lerie, some extraordinary slides on Europe and its
shrines were shown to an enthusiastic audience.

N accordance with the principles of
thrift, the student banking system
, .. 'il-
provides early training in financial reg- rp-
ulation. Another phase of education,
this system suggests to the girls the
necessity of thrift and also stimulates
in them a further spirit of self-reliance.
Monday mornings, students receive en-
velopes in which their deposits are
placed. The following moming, a tell-
er collects the envelopes and the mon-
ey is sent to the bank. The banking
stystem is run entirely by the students
It includes student supervisors as well
as homeroom tellers. Thus the school
banking system not only encourages
thrift but arouses the girls to become
more independent and self-reliant in-

HE Career Guidance Club was organ-
ized to acquaint the girls with the diff-
erent vocations and the various colleges.
The members looked up information about
D'Youville, Rosary Hill, Mercyhurst, etc. '
Reports were given on the professions and
the opportunities in chosen fields of work.
The girls took trips to the Doyle Beauty M
School, the State Hospital, and Our Lady
of Victory Hospital.

HE Sophomores, juniors, and Sen-
iors have combined their histrionic
talents and have formed the Senior Dra-
matic Club. Margaret Ryan, our di-
rector, demonstrated the proper ap- '
plication of stage make-up, emphasiz-
ing especially how to put on beards.
The girls mastered stage directions and
studied effective lighting. The impor-
tance of costuming was noted.
The club presented a Nativity play,
"Come Let Us Adore Him" for the stu-
dent body. This play was truly the
work of the members, since they pro-
vided for and set up the scenery, put
on their own make-up, and added de-
tails in the costumes. "The Summons
of Sariel" was also studied by the group

ACH Tuesday afternoon, a group of
Freshmen entered into a new world-
the magical land of the theater. They
were taught how to stand, sit, and walk
correctly, not only on the stage but in
their daily lives. The speech exercises
helped to strengthen their vocal chords
and to improve their enunciation. They
presented two plays, "The Modern Mar-
tyr, " and "Pin-Up Pals, " for an assem-
bly program. The former was directed
by their faculty moderator, Miss Mad-
eline Stockman, while Lavina Caparel-
la, a Senior, directed the latter. Later,
the Freshman Dramatic Club once again
donned grease paint, this time present-
ing "Ladies Must Talk."

HE Glee Club, very aptly directed by Mrs. Cecelia Roy Kenny, aims at instilling in its members an
appreciation of music. Including members from the Freshman through the Senior years, it has helped to
brighten many school activities. At Christmas, the members contributed their part to the annual program.
Their songs included the traditional and also the less familiar of the Christmas hymns. The Glee Club
gave a warm welcome to a group of prospective Freshmen of next year and their parents with such songs
as "Alouette" and "A Merry Life." As a project all their own, they held a song fest featuring songs from
different countries of the world. It included "Hi Ho Sing Daily, " originating in Switzerland, "Return to
Sorrento, " an Italian song, German, Canadian and, of course, our native American songs. To add more
of a native American air to the program, they gave some "gay nineties" selections featuring the Charles-
ton and songs from this period. To end the happy year with a song, which is most fitting, the Glee Club
performed at the graduation exercises. Their songs helped to leave the Seniors with pleasant memories of
their years at Nardin.

' HE obligation of the family to bring up chil-
dren includes not only religious and moral
education, but physical and civil education as
well, principally insofar as it touches upon re-
ligion and morality." In order to see that their
children receive a foundation in leaming in the
proper environment, parents are wise to send
them, when they are young, to a Catholic el-
ementary school. "Suffer little children to
come unto me and forbid them not, " said Our
Lord to parents. Here at Nardin, children
are educated, as Our Lord would have them
come to Him, in mind, body and soul, in an
atmosphere permeated with fundamental Chris-
tian principles. The conscientious fathers and
mothers who, in accordance with the plan pro-
posed by Pope Pius XI, have placed their off-
spring in the hands of Holy Mother the Church
for education have placed them on the path to
true and holy living.
