Every day youre absent it costs you seventy-flve
cents Each yy eek, the total Power absentees waste enough
to send you to College for two years each year more
than enough for the best custom made car on the market
Staggermg, 1sn t1t9
That means that every year the average Power stu
dent IS absent from forty e1ght classes, classes that m1ght
haye made that e1ghty an e1ghty f1ve and glven you a

From any y1ewpo1nt, 1t 1sn t worth lt The l1ttle ram,
or snow or even hall you have to brave to get to school
those days you feel l1ke stavmg home IS not worth as
much as those extra po1nts
Its these credlts that mean a good Job, a happy llfe,
a Place 1n the Sun It s these that are lost forever be

In Your OPIHIOH
By J GAY
QLESTION II hy did you come to the
Joseph Majie: Semor Room 706 The
ady antage of ady anc
1ng a half year 1n SIX
months and the pros
pect of enter1ng a col
lege 1n September
looked very good
Somehow I had to
find a school w1th a
svstem that would
help me 1n th1s way Belng advlsed by
my e1ghth grade teacher to take the test
for Power, I d1d passed 1t, and entered
the class of February 1949 INow that
I am 1n my Semor year I can look back
on 365 Xt days of my l1fe saved and can
polnt to the t1me thus ut111zed and the
advancement made 1X0 matter what job
I get 1n later years thlS asset w1ll prove
mvaluable, Hrst because there 1S a cer
tam d1st1nct1on attached to do1ng Fresh
man year ln so short a t1me and second
because of the age advantage All my
l1fe I w1ll be ahead of myself by SIX
Brendan Ayres Junior Room 605 The
scholarshlp offered by
the school entlced me
to take the compet1
t1ve exammatlon for
entrance Although I
d1dn t succeed 1n my
fervent W1Sh, the 1m
press1on I recelved of
the Academy 1tself
the fr1endly Faculty and the type of boy
tak1ng the test were such that I could
not help but hke the school VK hen I
recexved notlce of my be1ng appomted
to the Freshman class of February,
1949 I naturally ascrlbed my assent ln
a letter lmmedlately reg1stered, and
thus become a full fledged Powerlte I
another year I w1ll have completed a full
course here If Semorxty proyes to be as
enjoyable as the prey 1ous three leyels I
w1ll haye had a yery pleasant and 1nter
est1ng although at t1mes sl1ghtly d1ffi
cult hlgh school educatlon
Nell OShea Sophomore Room 408
il hen my father went
to school ID Ireland
he was taught by
,kts the Ir1sh Chr1st1an
a Brothers and thought
that I should follovy
sult and attend a
school conducted by
them lihlle on vaca
t1on a feyy years ago up at South Nor
walk Conn I met a few brothers from
Iona College who were vacat1on1ng near
by Speak1ng to them about the schools
they conduct 1n 'Nlanhattan one of them
suggested that I should go to Power,
because he had graduated from there
and thought lt to be one of the best
schools 1n the Clty I took h1s advlce
and here I am My years at Power prove
my cho1ce to be correct
Eduard O Rezlly Freshman Room 301
I had the good for
tune to be personally
acqualnted w1th a
lead1ng member of
the faculty 1n the per
son of NIISICI' Rood
and concluded that 1f
all the teachers were
l1ke h1m, Power Me
mor1al must be a HICC school to attend
Informatron about the Academy ltS lo
cat1on h1story courses etc, was gladly
subscr1bed bv our Reglstrar and 1t was
thus I yyas conv1nced that Power was
the only school for me ii 1th only one
obstacle 1n my path the entrance test
I went about preparlng to overcome lt
'Xly study work was rewarded for I
was soon 1nformed that I passed and 1n
September became another Panther
Xacat1on days are over and you are
back agam You are at the threshold
of a new school year You look forward
to the months ahead w1th mterest and
hope Xou know that whatever your
record last year may have been you
novy have a fresh start You have a
chance to 1mprove the record
Nluch that we hear or say IS soon for
gotten Nlany words of counsel are soon
dlsmlssed from our mmds
They jall lzke snowflakes on the rzver
1 noment whzte then gone forever
Procrastmauon IS tl1e llllef of tlme
Th1s IS a thought whxch every student
must well hold 1n mmd It IS especlally
apt at the begmnmg of the school year
when hablts of study are bemg formed
and put to use It IS easy then to neglect
one s work to lose t1me
A poor start If you fa1l or almost
fa1l 1n your first QUIZ or two you may
never overcome the handlcap So xt IS
wxse to study well for the hrst month
extra well and thereby get a head start
ln the race for a final grade
Last mlnute preparatlon Some
people work effect1vely under pressure
ceptable work when they know t1me IS
runnlng out on them Hou may be ln
th1s group Don t put off unt1l tomorrow
what you can do today
F a1lure to study day by day H1gh
school students who do not consxder 1n
tellectual hfe a day by day affalr are
bound to be second rate students Those
yyho open the1r books only when QUIZZCS
roll around can expect low marks and
fa1l1ng grades A grade IH the s1xt1es
and below IS often the fru1t of lazlness
and a lax COHSCICHCC Often ask yourself
the QUCSIIOH Was lack of daily study
the Cause of my jazlure at the eramzna
tzons and dazly quzzzes?
Sour state of l1fe here IS that of a
student and students must study God
demands that everyone fulfill the dut1es
of hls state of l1fe If that IS not your
object then you dont belong IH h1gh
school VR hen june 1952 turns up you
should be able to look God and your
parents 1n the face and say that you
haye tr1ed to do your best
Our Lady of Lourdes IS the Seat of
il 1sdom Instead of wa1t1ng unt1l ex
ammatxons to turn up before pray1ng for
Nlary s help yyhy not start yylth a short
pray er m honor of Our Lady eyery day
for success 1n your stud1es9
