We hope that its perusal will please the friends who are kind enough to be interested in our school-day affairs and that in the years to come our classmates will find in its pages pleasant reminders of old happenings and tender memories of the bright and happy days spent as pupils of Nazareth Academy. We hope also that our teachers may find in our modest chronicles mementos of a class, not m odels of perfection, it is true, but, with all our faults, devoted to our teachers, to Nazareth and to one another.

Dawn Over the Mountains Across the distant eastern sky, Appear the opal tints of dawn. Old Mansfield lifts his crest on high, O’er stretches vast of greening lawn. Adown the massive mountain side, Supreme, the Heav’nly light descends, Until its splendor doth abide Upon the lake and valley fens. Methinks in ev’ry wondrous gleam The sky transmits upon the lake, I see, forsooth, a glory stream From out the shining, Pearly Gate. And even, in my dreams, I see The Master, girt with light divine, Shedding over land and sea Soft beamings that benignly shine. To draw our spirits to adore, In longing, wondering delight, The Christ, who gladdens o’er and o’er His children with this gift of light. Laura N. Hockins. Twenty-seven NINETEEN - TWENTY Commencement Speakers Salutatorian ALICE M. AMERING Valedictorian LAURA N. HOCKINS Class Officers President ADELINE RULIFFSON Vice-President HELEN EDDY Secretary MARGARET J. RODEN Treasurer LEONA E. FOX Twenty-eight NINETEEN - TWENTY =1 The New Constellation 3 [;N the olden time, the appearance of such a heavenly visitant as a [■ comet, was looked upon as an omen of vast and fearsome import. It might be the forerunner of war or other event of national significance, so that the pious prayed to be delivered from the evil-bearing comet. In the Autumn of 1916 an event, quite as attention-compelling, occurred in the world of Nazareth. To be definite, in the early hours of the eleventh of September there appeared in the heavens of Nazareth (to be found three flights up), a remarkable constellation. It was discovered quite simultaneously by several of the great scientists located in that place. When the constellation appeared on the horizon, it was difficult to distinguish its exact form, as some of the stars which at first seemed to form a part of the constellation, during its progress up the sky finally dropped away and associated with the bright company no longer. The number of stars in the constellation in the beginning was uncertain: but it was finally ascertained that the fixed companions forming the glorious company were one hundred seventeen in number. Among this stellar aggregation were stars of various magnitudes, some, of first magnitude were of compelling brilliancy, the others ranging in decreasing magnitudes until the light of their shining could scarcely be distinguished by the naked eye. Altogether, it is one of the finest constellations that adorn our skies. It has been noticed by experienced scientists that many remarkable things have happened since the appearance of this stellar group. It is a fact that our country entered the World War in April of the following year. However, the influences which seem to emanate from the starry visitant are, according to scientific authorities, of a more pacific character. As the attraction of the moon upon the yielding waters of the deep nroduces the great tidal waves, so the combined attraction of these heavenly bodies produce an influence hourly visible, not only upon inanimate nature, such as botanical gardens, palms and ferns and other growing things that seem to flourish under their bright rays, but likewise upon the hearts and even the moods of the people who are so fortunate as to live in the latitude in which this constellation is visible. The effect upon the heart seems to be that its pulsations are more rapid and more regular, imparting a healthy glow and inducing a genial mood and a general feeling that all’s right with the world; and yet, under certain atmospheric conditions, it is held that quite a complexity of moods may arise through the proximity and influence of this great constellation. It was observed that when this star-group was in the ascendant, destructive storms were prevalent especially in certain regions. These storms, however, appear to be growing less frequent even in the most afflicted areas. The immediate result of this temperamental condition seemed to be added activity in such movements as Red Cross work, Liberty Bonds, Irish Liberty loans and sewing machine funds for philanthrope purposes. There was also noticeable a decided tendenev toward literary societies; gradually developing into self-expression dramatically, theatrically, noetically, and in the form of the other fine arts, and the useful arts as well. The naming of this constellation has been of no little interest. Many scientific, historic and literary names were proposed. Some fanciful names were suggested and a few that were even whimsical. A committee of members of the Academy of Science was finally appointed to decide upon Twenty-nine Thivtt EDITORIAL BOARD NINETEEN - TWENTY =1 a suitable name. They decided that the constellation be called “The Lamp-bearers,” or since the older constellations have long affected Latin names, it will be called Lampadariae. As the eai th rolled on in its course, this beautiful constellation finally reached the zenith of the heavens in its beauty and glory, and the began its westward course. In this vicinity it will be visible above the horizon only a few months longer, as it will disappear in June, 1920. But though the beautiful, bright Lampadariae,—for many months and seasons past the cynosure of admiring eyes,—even though it will disappear from our skies in a cloud of glory, it will elsewhere have its rising. May the fortunate lands upon which it is destined to shed its brightness, hail it as a harbinger of good, and bless its clear shining until the firmament shall grow old and like a garment, be changed. Then may our constellation have a final rising in a firmament that shall abide forever. —Helen Eddy. In Memoriam ;7pHE influenza epidemic in the fall of 1918 did not depart from Rochester VH until it had laid its hand on Nazareth and had taken two of the members of our class of 1920. Anna Buonomo, of St. Bridget’s parish, had been with us in the academic department for two years and had transferred to commercial work in the September previous to her death. Marion Cole, of Our Lady of Pei-petual Help parish, had been a student of Nazareth scarcely a month; but this was sufficient time to endear her to her companions in the commercial department. Both of these, our loved and lost companions, are still remembered with tender regret. Their places are not vacant in the hearts of their classmates. With hope and trust we look forward to the final roll-call at the end of life’s great school, confident that our full circle of happy school-mates will again be re-united, and that all wall respond to the voice of the good Master, “Safely Here.” —Rosemary A. White. EDITORIAL BOARD Editor-in-Chief.Rosemary White Assistant Editor ----- Rosalia Kircher Laura Margrett Lucile Welch Margaret Flynn Maiy Mulheron Rita Sheehan Mildred Kupferschmid Gladys Hagerman Business Managers Camilla Hamlin ------ Helen Eddy Thirty-one JUNIOR CLASS NINETEEN - TWENTY =1 Commercial Class History The End of Our Perfect Days at Nazareth 7IRHE hot summer days still lingered in the land when Nazareth again opened her doors after her long summer vacation, to a group of girls • who were about to begin their business career. On that September morning the breeze was soft and humid as the breath of May. It seemed as if spring was in the air and also in many a heart. Everywhere appeared girls,—girls leaping from street cars; girls hurrying up the main walk, girls hastening along the Academy drive, girls running and girls strolling arm in arm. Happily we placed ourselves in Nazareth’s protecting arms, under the care of her good teachers. Each day as we glided quickly along the path of sunshine and roses, we came into contact with big sharp thorns, but we gladly struggled past them in our desire for success. Many a tear and many an hour of worry those shorthand notes have cost, but now that they are mastered, we laugh at the old mistakes. We shall never forget the days when we kept our first set of books, nor shall we forget the C that adorned and brightened their looks. The typewriter was a puzzle at first to our weary minds, but now we enjoy its sweet music as the words combine into letters. In correspondence we learned to treat the customer with courtesy and respect, that we may receive a response as soon as our letters reach his desk. Our English class gave us delight, as we appreciate the advantage of good English to the business woman. Two winters of school passed and then spring came again, came with its soft beauty of tender green, its wealth of blossoms and sweet fragrance of growing things; then came the summer and with it the end of our happy days at school. Everyone of the girls of the Senior Class of 1920 felt the hour of parting keenly. We know no happier home, no other place holds for us such close association. We do not want to, but we must say good-bye to dear, good Nazareth and the old happy days; good-bye to all dear familiar haunts and faces. Though years may come and years may go, time can never efface those fond memories of our girlhood days at Nazareth. —Mildred Kupferschmid. Alma Mater Dear Alma Mater, friend so true, We hail thy colors gold and blue, To this gleaming symbol fair, Fidelity shall be our care. We chant thy songs, and sing thy praise, We follow thee in all thy ways, Thy finger points Truth’s swei-veless track, Thy feet tread paths that turn not back. Dear Mother, still from eye and tongue Be truth’s high, kindling message flung, Let love for thee, expand our heart, And teach us still, the Queen thou art. —Agnes Keenan. Thirty-three — N ' to. “V .» 1 ' Thirty-four SECOND YEAR ACADEMIC CLASS NINETEEN-TWENTY =1 Raised to the Altar S a canonization, with its splendid ceremonial, could not fittingly take place during the Great War, this solemn event was delayed until " 1J peace had come to the grief stricken world. This year, therefore, is made illustrious by the canonization at the hands of His Holiness Benedict XV of two persons, well known and long revered in every land, Joan of Arc and Margaret Mary Alacoque. The beatification of Oliver Plunket will give joy not only to the Church in Ireland, but also to Catholics throughout the world. These great events will occur in May of this year. Joan of Arc, the heroine of France and the Saint of patriotism, was born in the little village of Domremy near the city of Vaucouleurs. 0 wonderful ways of God, who called this simple, saintly peasant girl from her sheep-fields to lead the armies of France in their hour of dark discouragement against the English foe, at that moment almost triumphant! France she saved, but her ungrateful countiy handed her over to the enemy to be burned at the stake as a sorceress. Once again, in our own time has France been saved by the spirit of the warrior- shepherd maid, which inspired the sons of France in carrying her lily banner to Victory. Margaret Mary Alacoque, also a French woman, lived in the seventeenth century and was a member of the Order of the Visitation, founded by St. Francis de Sales. Through her own devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the symbol of that beautiful attribute, His love for men,— and through her propagation of that devotion, Margaret Mary has been for over two centuries the direct instrument of arousing in human hearts a tender and reciprocal love of the divine Heart that has loved men so much. This is amply attested by the well-established and universal practice of a Novena of Communions on the first Friday of every month, a devotion appealing and efficacious, bringing down upon the individual and the community rich blessings from the Heart of Jesus. Another recipient of the exalted honor of the Church is Dr. Oliver Plunket, Archbishop of Armagh, and primate of all Ireland, who suffered death for the Catholic faith during the religious persecutions in Ireland, in the reign of Charles II. This heroic martyr is only one of the illustrious champions of Faith, who, in the dark days of persecution, fearlessly guarded the sanctuary of God, and handed down to succeeding generations the deposit of divine Faith. In the words of a learned Irish writer we would apostrophise the martyred Primate—“Illustrious soul! Thy memory is embalmed in the tears and honored by the admiration of successive generations! The pow ' er of thy persecutors was short-lived, and nothing remains of them but the memoiy of their crimes; Your virtues still exhibit a glorious example of patience, meekness, humility, and fortitude. Thou hast received thy reward: Anima sanctissima aveto salveto. May the contemplation of thy happiness encourage us to imitate thy Virtues.” —Margaret D. Flynn. Thirty-five Thirty-six FIRST YEAR ACADEMIC CLASS NINETEEN - TWENTY =1 IS Ireland Americans, we know how greatly the wonderful privilege of liberty ' wjc is to be appreciated. We know how much we value our freedom. how desperately we would struggle to prevent the taking away of our democratic government. Indeed, we can well sympathize with those who have struggled to gain even a reflection of the freedom enjoyed by us. When we were a young nation, scarcely twenty-five years old, we approved of the steps taken by the Greeks to gain a representative government, and voiced our congratulations of their success through the mouth of one of our greatest statesmen, Daniel Webster. More recently the cause of Poland, whose sufferings have filled the pages of history to the shame of her oppressors, we endorsed. Serbia was not without our assistance and encouragement. And so it has been with every people seeking our aid in the name of liberty. Now , another land, a people fully as deserving as any of those mentioned, is calling. Indeed, throughout her entire history, she has never ceased her struggles to free herself from the heel of her oppressor. Will America turn a deaf ear to Ireland alone? No, America is true to her principles of justice and human liberty. Ireland has for over seven centuries been ruled harshly by a country, which after invading this fair land without cause or provocation, sought to subject her by the most cruel measures possible. The invader took away her language, her institutions of learning, renowned throughout the world, and her government. He peopled her most fertile lands with the outlaws of England and Scotland, her opponents in all things civil and religious. But although he might despoil the sons and daughters of Saint Patrick of their temporal goods, his efforts were not sufficient to deprive them of their faith and th rough the ages Ireland has ever clung tenaciously to her ancient heritage of the faith of Saint Patrick. Eamon De Valera, president of the Irish Republic, the heroic figure now standing in the forefront of Ireland’s magnificent struggle, adapting the words of Cardinal Mercier to the case of Ireland, said: “The authority of that power (England) is no lawful authority. Therefore, in soul and conscience the Irish people owe that authority neither respect, nor attachment nor obedience.” Yet when England entered the struggle against Germany, the Irish readily enlisted in great numbers in the cause of humanity, though they resisted conscription. Later, when the United States became a participant in the conflict and President Wilson enunciated his fourteen points, the Irish took up the cause with renewed vigor, for it was their own battle they were fighting now; if the war was won “freedom for small nations” was promised. And so from the Marne to the Dardanelles, the bodies of Irish heroes, who fell for humanity and for Ireland, lay buried. Now the struggle is over and Ireland asks for her freedom. Shall we not protest against a longer delay in restoring to her the self-determination which already has been delayed seven hundred and fifty years? The members of Phi Beta Club have substantiated their American love of liberty by a generous contribution to the Irish Liberty Loan, and the general and active sympathy of the students with the Irish Cause was evident in the enthusiasm of the stirring student-speeches on the occasion of St. Patrick’s day. They are united in the hope that the dawn of freedom is breaking upon that long-suffering land and that soon, very soon, they shall rejoice to see that land of saints and sages take her place among the nations of the earth. —Rosemary White.

All things of earth seemed to slip away from me, and I was alone with him!!! In rapture I gazed at his beautiful brown hair on which the sunbeams played, his strong, well-shaped head, held high, his fine face with its strong nose and deep expressive eyes that sparkle with fun and jollity. His broad shoulders suggested strength. They spoke of burdens that could be borne silently, uncomplainingly. His long, shapely legs made one feel that he could cover miles and miles of the country without even tiring. Oh! If I could but touch him, if I could press my cheek close to his face for one little minute. In silent rapture I gazed at him when, suddenly, as though from far away, came a coarse, rude voice and I was brought down from my heights by a “Giddap " —“Giddap”—and then as suddenly as he had come, the much admired pony passed out of my sight. —E. M. Hayes. School Days We started bravely schoolwards, one bright September day, To Nazareth, the well-beloved—our hearts all sang like May, We never dreamed of hardships in that grand, imposing place. And that many a difficulty was lurking there, to face. We struggled with old Algebra with all its X, Y, Z’s. And waded thru biology, and cut up frogs with ease (?). We read of brave knight Ivanhoe and his Rowena fair, And we, too, builded beautiful, old castles in the air. We studied our geometry with angles A, B, C, And mastered Caesar’s Gallic Wars most understandingly; With German, were we drafted to valiantly contend. But after all our troubles, we found a happy end. But now we are a Senior Class (mirabili dictu!) We’re glad we found those hardships, for they just put us thru And now that we are leaving, we all must truly say, Those years we spent at Nazareth will light our hearts alway. —Lois J. Meyer. Here’s to the 1920 girls, Here’s to our Nazareth days; Bring out the good old songs, girls, Sing out the good old days. Here’s to our matchless teachers, girls, Patient and kind always; Here’s to the good old Nazareth, girls, Here’s to our glad school days. Thirty-nine BETA PHI CLUB The Beta Phi Cluh 7Jj|HE Beta Phi, or Book Lovers Club, was reorganized early in the fall by a large and enthusiastic group of Seniors and Juniors. The officers ’ were then elected, to cany on the work of the society for the year. Rosalia Kircher was named for President; Frances Levy, Vice-President; Mildred Russell, Secretary; and Kathryn Kelly, Treasurer. Since the purpose of the club is literary, speakers are always welcomed with great pleasure. Our first speaker was Rev. Daniel O’Roarke, who afforded us a most pleasant afternoon by his readings from T. A. Daly, the well known writer of Italian and Irish dialect. On another afternoon we were deeply impressed by the discourse of Rev. George Kettell, a professor of St. Bernard ' s Seminary. In his speech on Americanism, the thought was put forcibly before our minds of the future work of women, and what is more important, the need of good women in the world at the present time. The discourse was indeed appreciated by all his hearers and will be of great value to everyone in the years to come. On another occasion, Father Grady, well known among us through his former addresses to Beta Phi, introduced to us the English writer, Gilbert K. Chesterton. The story of this great man’s life and personality, together with a criticism of his work was more than interesting and was greatly appreciated. Indeed it has led to a special devotion to the genial paradoxer. The last speaker of the year was Rev. Charles Bruton, who gave us an interesting review of the situation in Ireland, emphasizing especially the pitiful condition of that country at the present time. The discourse was most instructive as well as very interesting. Enthusiasm on that particular afternoon was so aroused that before the meeting was adjourned, it was voted that a hundred dollar bond be purchased by the club to aid the movement for the freedom of Ireland. The club enjoyed a pleasant afternoon’s entertainment, furnished by some of their own members, Alice Amering, Margaret Flynn, Agnes Keenan, Agnes Powers, and Lucille Welch, who gave readings on the life and works of Alice Meynell. The life of this English poet was rendered more interesting because of the close relation which the poet Francis Thompson had with her and her illustrious family, and also because of the beautiful tributes which he paid to her and to her husband and children. Although the purpose of the society is literary, nevertheless the members are not too intellectual to enjoy social gatherings now and then. A Thanksgiving party was held and proved to be most successful, due, in large part, to the good work of the committees. At Christmas another party was given, which was equally as enjoyable as the first. On Valentine’s Day, which preceded Lent by a very few days, a party on a smaller scale was held which was just as heartily enjoyed. Finally, the work of the Beta Phi Club being brought to a successful close, we wish to thank all the speakers who have so generously afforded us such instructive and entertaining hours. We also wish to express our appreciation to officers of the organization who have so earnestly and so successfully promoted the good work of the club. We sincerely wish equal success and enjoyment to all future members of the Beta Phi Club. —Laura L. Margrett. Forty-one NINETEEN - TWENTY OFFICERS OF BETA PHI CLUB The Truth The sages say in wisdom deep, Your school-days are the happiest, Those care-free, merry, cheerful years, When Joy is king, and youth is best. But woe is me! I often feel That life is nothing but a pest; All joy has fled, and youth seems old,— The night before the monthly test. There’s Virgil, Civics, Chemistry, With History, and all the rest, All running riot in my head, The morning of the monthly test. The rising sun, o’er other girls Beams gently on, and lets them rest. But Oh! It simply glares on me, To wake me for that monthly test. When I was small, the breakfast bell Was answered with an honest zest; Now, appetite is faint and weak,— I have to take a monthly test. Some say that gold is evil’s foot, And some the Ouija board attest; But as for me, I know no doubts, The answer is: The monthly test. —Kathryn Kelly. NINETEEN-TWENTY 3C =I DEBATING TEAM School Debate fj TOTHING in the activities in the life of a high school student is more helpful along many lines, than the participation in school debates. : ? It offers the best opportunity for the cultivation in self-control and public speaking. The debates held by the Senior Class of Nazareth Academy have always afforded great interest to the rest of the class. The first debate was given before the Beta Phi Club at one of the meetings of the last term. The subject for discussion was, Resolved: That cabinet officers ought to have seats and the right to speak in Congress. The affirmative side was upheld by Camilla Hamlin, as leader, Lesta Danihy and Alice Amering while Rosemary White, leader, Josephine Bersch and Laura Hockins were on the negative side. The subject and speakers were introduced by Helen Reilly, the chairman. The debate was won by the negative side, although the affirmative side must be given praise for their splendid efforts. Their arguments were clear and convincing, showing good preparation. The members of the club wish to extend their congratulations to the debaters for their creditable work in argumentation and the pleasure given to their audiences. We feel sure that the debates are a benefit not only to the listeners but also to those who take part in them, by exercising them in the art of public speaking. —Rita B. Sheehan.

The first was given on the occasion of the feast of St. Thomas, a day of special significance at Nazareth Academy. On this day, according to long custom, a reception was given to our Rt. Rev. Bishop, by the students of Nazareth. The Seniors, with the aid of some Juniors, gave a splendid dramatization of “Saul of Tarsus.” To those in the audience it seemed hardly possible that the masculine roles were played by girls, so well did they pitch their voices and affect the masculine walk and gestures. All who took part were praised for their dramatic work and characterization. The play was indeed a splendid success. The Senior play of 1920, “Daddy Long Legs,” we believe will go down in the school’s history as the best yet. The title role was taken by Mr. Shale, who made an ideal “Daddy Long Legs.” We wish to express to Mr. Shale our appreciation of his courtesy and his service to the Senior Class and to Nazareth in taking part in our play. His well known dramatic ability did much to bring about the genei’al success of the play. Virginia Donovan, as Judy Abbot, did high credit to that important role and is to be commended for her dramatic ability. Rita Sheehan, as Judy’s bosom friend, took her part with credit. Pauline Rampe, as Mrs. Lippett, gave the audience several hearty laughs, so clever was her make-up and her acting. Others in the cast were: Julia Pendelton_ Leanora Fenton _ Maid_ Mrs. Semple___ Nurse_ Butler_ Group of College Girls Each one who took part is to be highly commended for her good work in the play. Our audience at both performances were ready with hearty applause and were highly pleased with the play. -Beatrice Ashe Marguerite Rogers -Rhea Schreier .

Forty-six CAST OF “DADDY LONG LEGS ' E=ii ==» NINETEEN - TWENTY ■ = c Annual Ketrcat qT N the silence and quiet of the annual (U Retreat the students of Nazareth Academy made their spiritual preparation for the great feast of Easter. For three days the ordinary business of the school was suspended. It was a time of intensive study for the soul. What better time could be selected than those days, set aside by the Church to commemorate the Redemption of man through the sufferings of Christ? Surely it is right that out of the full number of school days, a few should be entirely dedicated to the object of knowing God more intimately and loving Him more ardently. For us those days meant retirement from the busy life of the world and the solemn quest of truth eternal. “How little does this world appear,” said St. Ignatius, “when I view the heavens— and how little do the material heavens, and this immense universe appear when I think of Thee, my God!” This gr eat thought was brought forcibly to our minds by the director of the retreat, Rev. Michael J. Ahem of the Society of Jesus. Deeply, he impressed upon our hearts, the chief purpose of life, the evil of sin, and the great power of virtue and of prayer. We are greatly indebted to our Rev. director for his appealing and effective setting forth of the principles of the spiritual life, and for the deep earnestness and the high spirituality of the meditations and conferences, that drew us profoundly to the love of the higher life, and to the embodiment of it in our own personal lives. The order of the days of Retreat was: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Spiritual Reading, Conferences, Rosary, Way of the Cross and Benediction, with ample time between for private reading and thought. During those few days the large auditorium was transformed into a chapel with its atmosphere of prayerful silence. There was silence everywhere. The voice of mirth so characteristic of youth, was suspended, and the beholder was not a little impressed with the spectacle of over five hundred school-girls transformed from the vivacity of ordinary life to the solemnity of Retreat. This Retreat, the last for those who are about to leave the school, will shine as a beacon light far down the pathway of life. For many it is the guiding star which will direct their footsteps into the place in life that God has destined for them. For all, it brought practical lessons which will be carried with them through life. We feel that no Retreat could reach a higher effectiveness than the one which we have had this year. For the advantage of so splendid an opportunity we are indebted to the solicitous care of our mother Nazareth; and for the unusual delight and spiritual profit of those favore d days, we are grateful to the able director Rev. M. J. Ahem, the president of Canisius College, Buffalo. —Camilla I. Hamlin. Forty-seven NINETEEN - TWENTY The Visit of Cardinal Mercier tf NE of the most eminent visitors ever entertained at Nazareth Academy, came to our school on October thirteenth. The auditorium was filled to its capacity by members of the Red Cross Society and the teaching Sisters of the city, and all felt honored by the presence of so exalted a world figure. Never fairer day shone on Nazareth than on that golden October afternoon. As the hour drew near for the arrival of the Prelate of Belgium, a high expectancy pervaded the waiting audience and the gathering throngs outside. As quietly and unassumingly as the meekest and poorest among the onlookers, the world-honored man in his Cardinal’s rob es, entered the school at the appointed time, escorted by Bishop Hickey and other prominent representatives of the Church and the city. His Eminence was greeted by Belgium’s stirring anthem, “La Brabanconne,’’ sung by Through the courtesy of the Rochester the entire Student body. As the Her » w distinguished company was seated on the auditorium stage, the Glee Club rendered “To Thee, 0 Country.’’ After her address of welcome, Miss Mary Foley presented the Cardinal with a bouquet of rosebuds and an illuminated copy of her speech. He replied in a few words of appreciation of his cordial reception. He spoke with commendation of the great work of fitting young women to do their Christian duty when the world needs them, a work which is being carried on by such educational institutions as Nazareth. Doubtless, thinking of the many children in his own country who have been deprived of an education by the war, he urged that the girls make the most of the golden opportunity which they now possess. From his few sentences, those present knew that he felt more than words could express. Many were the snap-shots taken as, with a benign smile on his noble countenance, he passed down the walk to the waiting auto. These stolen pictures of the great prelate we shall cherish for years to come as souvenirs of the day never to be forgotten. Our school, however, was not the only place in this city favored with a visit from the Cardinal. Upon his arrival here he attended services at Father Notebaert’s church. Before coming to Nazareth, the Churchman, beloved by Catholics and Protestants alike, was entertained at a luncheon given by the Chamber of Commerce. Then he visited in turn the Cathedral, Exposition Park, where he spoke to the school children of the city, Nazareth Academy, St. Ann’s Home, St. Bernard’s Seminary, the Academy of the Sacred Heart, and Bishop Hickey ' s home. In the evening his Eminence spoke to the throngs in Convention Hall, Rochester’s final Foity-eight fcai =3 NINETEEN - TWENTY ===3c memory of the Cardinal will be that of his giving 1 his fatherly blessing to those assembled there. During his short sojourn in America, the Archbishop of Malines was heartily welcomed and highly honored in the leading cities and Universities of the country. From the universities of this state alone, he received three honorary degrees. Columbia University conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Laws. In presenting this honor, Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler said: “Military power, until then unmatched in histoiy, quailed before your burning words of exhortation and defiance. Your pen was mightier than the sword of the German armies. The heart of all America goes out to you and hails you as a worthy prince of the Christian Church and a captain of the human spirit. " From the University of the State of New York he received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws, which the Regent’s Board has bestowed upon but three living men. President Finley, the head of the State Board of Education, said: “We confer this honor of the State upon your Eminence as the world’s highest exemplar of those laws of justice and mercy through which the race resists injustice and rises toward its God in human brotherhood.” When he visited Syracuse, the University of that city gave him its highest degree, that of Doctor of Humane Letters. The Cardinal possesses “supreme qualities with supreme scholarship approximating the perfection of supreme achievement.” In the hour of Belgium’s darkest need he was to his stricken people, father and shepherd indeed, his dauntless spirit defying the might of the conqueror and rebuking his injustice with all the power and majesty vested in his princely office. His appeals to the faith of his people, by which he encouraged them to patient endurance under their dire calamities, are among the most sublime pronouncements of histoiy. Nor were his personal efforts and labors less admirable in alleviating the crying wants of his homeless people. He did indeed, make himself poor to supply in some small measure the wants of his afflicted flock. The world will never forget Cardinal Mercier. Through the annals of histoiy he will live, “a majestic figure great in its simplicity and unworldliness.” —Laura N. Hockins. Leaving- With happy heart and glad pulsation, Each girl all-hails her graduation; She lightly chides slow-footing time, And tries to tell her joys in rhyme. But as the sunset hour draws near, That “irksome work” seems strangely dear. The parting, sooth, may cost a pang, E ' en to the heart that day-long sang. But when her school tasks are put by, When draws life’s hour of trouble nigh, The strength her woman’s heart shall know, From Nazareth’s living fount doth flow. •—Frances Levy. Forty-nine Fifty £ NINETEEN-TWENTY =1 Farewell ! graduation day approaches, we look forward to it with mingled g Tv feelings of joy and sorrow,—joy in the realization that our efforts = have met with success, sorrow in the thought that on that night we will stand together as a Class for the last time. We are about to leave school, to go out from the care of our Fostering Mother. During our four years, while we have been weaving the closest ties of a strong, pleasant friendship with one another, we have learned to appreciate our Mother, Nazareth. At her feet we have been developing in mind and in character, and now she sends us forth to take our place in the great army of women who are doing so creditable a part in the world’s work. She has labored with care to prepare us for our life work and to fit us for a career that will be worthy of us and of her. Perhaps none of us will compel the world to look our way,—indeed, it is more likely that our lives will be spent in quiet obscurity. We know that our mother, Nazareth, would have our ambitions to be but womanly, a fine efficiency in our life work, an ever-growing culture and refinement, a heart of sympathy and helpfulness, and a strong faith and practical piety that will give direction and stability to our own lives and render them capable of the best service to others. Many times during our days here, we have tried the patience of our teachers; many times, doubtless, we have caused them to wonder if appreciation of the highest service can be found in the school-girl’s heart. As we look back upon the past years, and see the accumulated kindnesses and the complete devotedness of our teachers to our highest good, when we think of our close and pleasant association with those women whose lives are consecrated to a great work, of the fruits of which we have so largely partaken, our hearts are, indeed, filled with the deepest reverence and gratitude. We ask them to forget our half-hearted response to their high promptings. We assure them that the good seed has not fallen upon the rocks nor upon the wayside, and we trust that their hearts may yet joy in the abundant fruit in due season. As our final word to our Alma Mater we would say, with Virgil: In freta dum fluvii current, dum montibus umbrae Lustrabunt convexa, polus dum sidera pascet, Semper honos nomenque tuum laudesque manebunt. Quae me cumque vocant terrae. + Nazareth I love to think of the pleasant days We have spent side by side at N. A.. But now ' we must part, and deep in each heart Bear memories sweet away. Good-bye, dear School, God bless you, And guide your noble way; We pledge our loyalty and love To you, our dear N. A.—Leona E. Fox. A V I quite agree there’s something wrong With all the literary throng, Who waste supremely precious time In cramping thoughts to make them rhyme. I think their minds would saner be, If they wrote just like you and me. —Loretta McGrath. Fifty-one LIBRARY—STUDY HALL—CLASS ROOMS Fifty-two NINETEEN-TWENTY =1 Alumnae Notes OFFICERS President ------ Mrs. Philip Purcell Vice-President ----- Miss Anne Dodge Secretary ------ Miss Marie Doud Treasurer ------ Miss Marie Frey 7|r HE present year in the life of the Nazareth Alumnae Association was sgl? officially begun at a meeting held last December at which officers for 1 the year 1920 were elected. The vigorous discussion, at that time, of future activities of the alumnae, gave promise of a thorough regeneration of the spirit of our organization. Over two hundred members attended the alumnae annual dinner which was held on the evening of April 21st. On that occasion, in the welcoming speech of our president, Mrs. Philip Purcell, the suggestion was made that the alumnae do something for the new Nazareth to be built in Pittsford, in recognition of the splendid work of the old academy on Jay Street whose sale to the city of Rochester had just been announced. Miss Katherine F. Hogan, of the faculty of West High School, reviewed the ideals of the association and reminded the members of their responsibilities as Catholic alumnae. Something of the activities of the National Catholic War Council was explained to the alumnae by Mrs. Helen Nolin Cox, who served in France with that body. Mrs. Cox, who was in charge of the Hotel Cecile in Paris, also explained that the Council had been re-organized upon a peace basis under the name of the National Catholic Welfare Council. Bishop Hickey, who presided at the dinner as the guest of honor, also touched upon the work of the National Catholic Welfare Council, defining it as an attempt, on the part of lay Catholics, to organize for the purpose of giving to American Catholics a common voice in the discussion of national problems and as an effort to extend Catholic experience in past problems to the solution of national questions now arising. The Bishop concluded with an appeal to the alumnae to aid in the social work among the poor of the diocese. The alumnae scholarship, awarded each year to the eighth grade pupil of any parochial school, receiving the highest average in the alumnae scholarship examination, was won this year by Teresa Memmel, Perpetual Help School. In the present graduating class, Helen Eddy was the winner of the Alumnae scholarship of 1916, and Rosemary White, Rosalia Kircher, Marion Scanlon, Mary Mulherin and Alice Amering were recipients of scholarships given by Nazareth Academy to the highest representative from each school entering the competition, in consideration of the drive made by the Alumnae for the new Academy then building. Through the medium of this alumnae page in your Senior Annual, the members of the Nazareth Alumnae Association extend to the Class of 1920 sincere congratulations and praise for your successfully completed academic work and a hearty welcome to you as members of our organization to which your enthusiasm and numbers will bring strength of spirit and appreciable aid in our future activities.

Sixty-five Sixty-six NINETEEN - TWENTY =3 The Senior Party Did you ever hear the story Of the party that we gave? It was early in November, And, oh! the spread we laid! And then the entertainment Following the feast! When you just hear about it, You’ll know what you have missed. We had some real musicians. Violin, piano, too. The selections that they rendered! And the dancers that they drew! The houi’s sped, 0 so lightly! For joy and mirth held sway, ’Tis named in Senior Chronicles, Our first Red Letter Day. But there was just one question Left in the minds of all. Who could have washed the dishes At our famous Senior Ball? —Alice M. Amering. Do You Recognize ? I had an idea that school called at 8:45. Will the owner of that lunch box please claim it at once ? Now you can see for yourselves just where you stand. All reports will be in not later than to-morrow. Don’t think you’re hurting me by not doing your work; you’re the losers. I wish I could make you girls think before you speak. I have some more seats up in front. Did anyone here lose this pin ? Now, when some of you young ladies are not graduated just come to me and I’ll tell you why. The ones who brought the popcorn up into this room, stand please. If you girls would only use your eyes, how much you would learn! I pity the man who has you in his office. ■fr The Impossible Can you imagine: A. Collins without her lessons ? M. Clinton without a date (for to-night) ? E. Heeks unkind to anyone ? F. Hayes refusing candy? M. Haag not worrying about the time? M. Kinsella hurrying to class? R.

Among the happy classmates Was one both fair and kind, Who offered to give a solo,— Then to dancing she inclined. So ’mid the peals of laughter, In an oriental gown, She tripped around the gym-room, While grace, each movement crowned. She greatly pleased the watchers, With talent, rarely shown, While another at the piano Added much to the “Eastern” tone. Then judge from this my story, That many with talent are crowned; But learn that without a class party, These talents might not be found. —Adeline S. Rulilfson. Worries I strolled to school one morning, A-worry all the way; About the little learning, I had for class that day. Class followed class too quickly To give me time or way To learn one lesson rightly Throughout that livelong day. At length the strain was over, And down the long, broad way I wandered meditating The perils of the day. Sweet sleep, the balm of wounded minds, Brought me no calm repose; I tossed that night in slumber, Dreaming of school-day woes. —Margaret M. Donovan.

Teacher—What house is ruling in England now? Eleanor—House of St. George. We are told there was never a match made before Jackson’s Administration. How did humanity survive it? Mary had a little book, But never in it did she look; All day she carried it around, But in it nothing ever found. Teacher: What did Wolfe say at the Battle of Quebec? Loretta: Don’t give up the ship. Teacher: Tell me one use of the period. Ruth (very diligently): A period is put on top of a comma to make a semicolon. Teacher: What is a Criterion ? Ethel: One who hollers for lost people. Teacher: To-morrow you will have a test on the first seventy pages in your speller. Ethel: Where shall we begin? Oh! How we long for good old June, That glorious month of vacation, When all can sing a joyful tune, After months of sad lamentation. Teacher in American History class: Class, can you give me an invention that operated as a remote cause of the Civil War? Class: Invention of the cotton gin! Teacher: Well, Lucille, what do you think about that? Lucille (blankly): Well, Sister, I can’t see how a mere drink could bring on a civil war. Class of ’20, studying Biology:— Teacher: Be seated, Madeline. Next? Madeline: Wait a minute, Sister, and I may say something that’s light. Many of the criticisms in English class this year have not been vague but hazy (Hayes-y). Exhortation—0! Little children, you must not, Teach another to use a “trot”! The class was studying the life of Shakespeare. Teacher: How many have seen the picture of Stratford-on-Avon in the library? No response. Finally— Mary (who lives on Stratford Park): We have seen Stratford-on- Genesee. What does the mathematics teacher mean when she writes “Reduce” on Margaret S’s. paper?

Ancient History: Dr. Schliemann evacuated (excavated) the ruins of the buried city. Mary (appearing in the doorway): Where are you going, Mil? Mil: No place. Mary: What’s the great hurry then? Mil: So I ' ll get back quickly? Coming out of Virgil class: " Charon was terribly slow in getting across the river in Virgil class to-day.” " What was the trouble?” " Oh! the River Styx!” On the Lake Avenue car at 2:50:— Eleanor—“Have you plenty of room, Ag?” Agnes— " Yes, thank you.” Eleanor—“Well, then, move up and give me some.” It was in the drawing class-room. “Sargent was a great artist,” said the teacher. “With one stroke he could change a smiling face into a sorrowful one.” “That’s nothing,” said Frances aside to her companion, “my mother did that to me lots of times.” “Say,” said Lucy as she entered the clothing store, “I bought this dress here less than two weeks ago, and it is rusty looking already.” “Well,” replied the clerk, “I guaranteed it to wear like iron, didn’t it?” Mary— ,f Your older sister, I heard, has spent a great deal of time in Italy.” Margaret—“Oh, yes, indeed: she’s quite Italicized.” Helen—“College girls seem to take life pretty easy.” Catherine—“Yes, even when they graduate they do it by degrees.” Adeline—“Is it true that bleaching hair causes insanity?” Eleanor—“Well, I know two fellows who are simply crazy over a blonde.” Alice—“My grandfather has reached the age of 96. Isn’t it wonderful ?” Agnes—“Wonderful nothing! Look at the time it’s taken him to do it.” Adeline’s mother sent her to the store. When she got there she forgot what she came for. The druggist, endeavoring to aid her, said: “Was it pills?” “No sir.” " Was it medicine?” “No sir.” “Was it tooth-paste ?” “No sir.” “Well, I think you had better go home and ask your mother what you came for.” “That’s it,” cried Adeline with a look of intelligence, “fifteen cents worth of camphor, (came for).

The fabric only, of a dream, Waved o’er me by some mountain sprite, But vanishing like pearly mist In morning’s calm and sober light. —Lucile Welch v Hail, Alma Mater!

How do our captains in American History know whom to call on ? Alas! to what purpose have we thumbed our Virgil these long months? Only to find that even Aeneas is faithless. Our Trojan hero, indeed! And then, after cruelly sailing away from Sidonian Dido, he has the unparalled audacity to face her in the “mourning Fields” in Hades. What did Hamlet say, “What a piece of nerve is man?” Who pushed over the lamp-post in front of the school? We have our suspicions, but will not voice them,—lest Father Ryan pronounce it “rash judgment.” Recently the country was disturbed by the appearance of the Aurora Borealis, which some people believed foreboded evil, while it was only to predict great things for the Class of 1920. -lr DID YOU EVER : Rise fifteen minutes earlier in the morning and glory in the fact that for once you would be on time, only to come down stairs and find that you had forgotten to wind your watch the night before and it had gone a half hour slow? Leave the house early in the morning to look up something in the library that should have been done yesterday, and have a coal wagon break down on the track? Spend all night getting a lesson when you were “just dying” to go out and the next day arrive in class and see the teacher passing paper for a test? Prepare a “beautiful” English lesson and not be called on? Because of the above fact not prepare any lesson the following week and be called on first thing? Really and truly forget your instruction note book and have the teacher say that she has received too many such excuses and will take five credits off your percent when you know right well the girl next to you has “gotten away” with that bluff for the past three weeks? Prepare the next lesson ahead in your modem language grammar because you wanted to go to a dance and then on the great day get in class to have the teacher say “For to-morrow we will take a reading lesson” ? Plan to have a study period from 9:35 to 10:20 and then hear the announcement “the seniors will have singing to-day” ? Leave a lesson to be done on the car and then not be able to get a seat? If you ever did these things, dear classmates, all 1 can sav is “same here.” —R. A. VV. :• The End Every senior’s heart is sad, As speeds the day more near, When ends the school-day joys we ' ve had, And friendships held so dear. We ' ve had our troubles and our cares, We’ve also had our fun, Now, each the general sorrow shares, Although our goal is won! —Helen Eddy.
