Behind a smooth-running school is
the guiding hand of an understand-
ing principal who gains the respect
and love of the entire student body.
Notre Dame has such a person in
Sister Mary Ralph, S.N.D. Always
accessible, always available, her wise
counsel and her personal interest are
valued by every student.
The Class of '46 extends most gra-
cious thanks to Sister lXlary Ralph
for her patient and devoted direction
which has made the days of our so-
journ at Notre Dame happy ones.
When in future years we look back
to our high school days, the tardy
slips and ninth periods will be a hazy
outline, but Sister Mary Ralph's
smile framed in the office window
will always be bright in our mem-
Something that VVebster does not
include in his dehnition of a school
faculty is the vast array of varied and
complicated duties of a teaching
group in charge of a large number
of girls of different ages-freshmen,
sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
The Sisters of Notre Dame Acad-
emy have for four years fulfilled
their obligations to us, the graduat-
ing class of 746, just as faithfully as
they have in their preceding years
of service to the thousands of girls
entrusted to their care.
The chief obligations of the facul-
ty lie in the physical, intellectual and
moral education of their students.
"Plan, strive, pray for success" is the
motto they hold up to all of us whom
they fashion and develop into loyal,
worthy citizens. We, in our turn,
backed by a thorough Notre Dame
education, should be capable of car-
rying on to completion the unfinished
tasks of the present generation, as
far as this responsibility will devolve
ln the past several years, the stu-
dent population of Notre Dame
Academy has been increasing by
leaps and bounds, and the faculty
has grown in proportion,-each new
addition to their number being a
welcome and warm-hearted exten-
sion, complementing the entire
scheme of the spirit, facilities, and
progressiveness of our faculty.

our diocese, after the death of our
beloved Archbishop Schrembs, has
continued the great work of forming
new parishes, to bring the greatest
amount of spiritual good to the larg-
est number of his people, and the
benefits of a Catholic education with-
in the reach of every Catholic child.
This extraordinary zeal for souls is
characteristic of our bish0p's every
undertaking, as his many achieve-
Though with us for only three
years, Bishop Hoban is known to us
and throughout the Cleveland Dio-
cese for his vibrant Catholic action.
We students of Notre Dame are
grateful to God for giving us such a
leader and spiritual guide as our be-
loved Bishop Hoban.
'fGiving service in a manner at-
tractive to all, genial, friendly, with
a ready greeting for everyone" is
only a small portion of a total char-
acterization, all of which has the
same ring, and all of which belongs
to Father Natalis, our Academy
Chaplain, and teacher of religion.
Although we seniors did not have
the privilege of being instructed by
Father Natalis, we know from the
juniors that we have missed an ex-
cellent, conscientious teacher.
Notre Dame's Inspiration
Behind every successful project is
a successful personality. Behind the
well-organized institution is a person
of character, leadership and vision.
Therefore, dearest to the heart of
every Notre Dame student is our
own Mother Mary Vera, S.N.D.
Although not seen in our midst as
often as we should like, nor as famil-
iar to us as the members of our facul-
ty, she is with us perpetually in her
remarkable guiding spirit.
Serving as personal representative
of Our Lady to us, Mother Mary
Vera has been an inspiration in the
life of every individual student at
Notre Dame. Her name, a name of
Htruthv, easily signifies what lN1other
Mary Vera is for us: true educator,
true inspiration, true leader,-surely
a name worthy of remembrance
through life, to help us live up to
the ideals of Notre Dame.

The word "faculty", when applied
to the religious and lay teachers of
our Academy, is synonymous with
willingness, readiness, and ability to
help whenever possible and wherever
needed. We, the seniors, have known
them for four all-too-short years. We
have met them in the various classes
and in extra-curricular activities,
but, wherever it was that our classes
or our out-of-class interests brought
us into contact with them, we agree
in our serious moments, not unmind-
ful of the hard, often grueling work
that was for us their order of the
day,-we all agree that we've been
mighty lucky to see nobility of char-
acter, in concern for the total success
of others, at such close range.
Alphabetically reviewed accord-
ing to departments, the names of
our teachers, and the subjects they
teach, are here recorded by us for
easy and long remembrance.
In the Art department, SISTER
MARY GERMAINE has persevered in
the sometimes thankless task of de-
manding Hre-do's" when she knew
that anything less than perfection
was unworthy of her artists.

Contest awards and recognition
earned by her students prove that
her method is right.
The Commerce department does
a big piece of work for a large
number of students. SISTER lVlARY
DOLURUSE, perhaps best known to the
seniors studying commerce subjects,
keeps high ideals of all-around ef-
ficiency before her future secretaries,
in her classes of advanced shorthand,
secretarial training, transcription and
economics. SISTER MARY GERALD
prepares the way for future Hbudg-
eteers" in her several bookkeeping
classes, and follows up with second-
year typewriting. Speaking of laying
groundwork, MISS LOIS GOREY does
plenty of this important work in her
Hrst year shorthand and typewriting
