With unfailing regularity, it takes toll of the minutes that make up our high school days. At times the hours drag along monotonously, again, they speed by with breath-taking swiftness. Lunch period is a real record-breaker. Assemblies and other programs bring welcome release from the daily grind of lessons. Between classes, moments of laughter and easy camaraderie run, like a golden thread, through each hour. Before we realize it, the clock will have ticked away the last moment of our high school days. We shall have remaining only our treasured memories and the intangible structure, called character, that we have built during this time. 8:1354-"Stand for the prayer . . .

'r . i lu Our mountain homeland lies in the hard coal region of "1 PCllllSylVillllil. On all sides rolling hills stretch away into 'i""""" the distanee. The Sehuylkill River winds its course through the valleys. and beautiful woodlands lie along its banks. Deep in the earth lies the "buried sunshine" of the ages, the "black diamondu deposits that have made the area famous. Mining has heen the chief industry here since Necho Allen. in l790. so strangely discovered the wealth of hard coal hidden in the veins of the earth. From Europe came Welsh, lrish, Poles, Germans, Lithuanians, Ukrainians, lluleh, Slovaks, and llalians to seek security and freedom. Towns and villages sprang up around the mining pits and soon houses, large and small, dotted the hillsides. To their mountain homeland, the immigrants brought the beautiful customs and traditions of the 'colde countries," a priceless heritage. Here the settlers became one people, a typical example of the "melting pot" that is America. Witll the years the people have absorbed the strength and simplicity of the hills. and reflect the sturdy character of the rugged terrain. The S1'Stllll Mass. opening the Pottsville Centennial, was celebrated in the school auditorium by Father Fasig. Bishop Leech preaished the sermon. 'f,,.: F" gf.- . " f v i r ff. f .
