OFFICE OF THE BISHOP
To the Graduates of the Class of 1954, -
Heartiest Congratulations! It is your unique
privilege and honor to be graduates in this Marian Year,
commemorating the one hundredth year of the definition by
Holy Church of the Immaculate Conception of Mary as an
article of faith.
You are about to sail out from the sheltered,
secure, carefree harbor of home and youth, into the seething,
surging, confusing, dangerous seas of adult life. In my hopes
and solicitude for your welfare, I know of no counsel I can give
you, better than this: - Sail out under the banner of Mary.
She is the Immaculate Motherg the Mother most chasteg the
Mother of Good counselg the Mother most powerfulg the Star
of the Sea.
Our Lord Himself gave her to you to be your Mother
Honor herg imitate herg love herg confide in herg bring all your
life's problems to herg she will never fail you in the hour of
And there will be storms as well as happy peaceful
days in your life's courseg cross-winds must needs disturb your
planned course. There will be heart-breaking disappointments,
Soul-searing crosses. Mary, sinless, the Mother of God, was
yet the Mother of Sorrows. It is God's way of purifying you,
sanctifying you, proving you. Only cling to Maryg confide in
her, and there will be no ship-wreck.
I commend you to the Irnmaculate Mother.
Bishop of Nashville

With the passing of time, the echoes of our school life
will grow fainter and fainter, and then die awa
ever will be the routine of school life, the fun we had, and
the friends we made. It is the hope of the 1954 Graduating
Class that, as you glance through this book in the years to
come, you will recapture those moments--and the echoes
will begin again.

As the class of May, 1954, was contemplating its coming commence
ment exercises, it fell to my lot to forecast the future of these fair dam
sels. After endeavoring in vain to cultivate what is commonly known as
"second sight," I concluded that prophetic vision was not my strongest
point. I uttered a cry of despair and a-s my cry of weakness did ascend
I fell into a deep sleep. Instantaneously I began to dream. I found my-
self gazing down the long vista of things yet-to-be.
I gazed into a courtroom and was amazed to find Jane Brannon, dis-
playing her oratorical pains, as a lawyer, Opposing her was her old
friend and classmate, DeMerus McCarver.
A small volume of Songs and Ballads had just been published and
the author is a girl, Betty Ris, who had a reputation in High School
days as a poet.
For a moment there was darkness and then suddenly I found my-
self in a library where Patsy Foley was Head Librarian. I picked up
a newspaper and learned from it the various activities of some of my
Sandra Weinberg was editor of this splendid paper and Marlene
Lorenz advertising manager. I read among the news that Joyce Bos-
well, an explorer, was departing for the Polar Region and her traveling
companion was none other than Ann Smithers.
I saw an announcement for a stage play which was to open at the
Palladium in London, the prima donna of which was Dixie Powers.
The choreography was done by the nationally known dancer, Dell
Marie Taylor, One of the most outstanding numbers featured Patsy
Roach, presenting her inimitable style of the jitterbug.
Under the news items I made the following discoveries:
Helen LaFargue had returned from a visit to Paris, where she
had been giving the French people new ideas on the very latest styles.
Her assistant was Patsy Lawrence and the noted hair stylist, Martha
Peggy Weber was a famous pianist and Barbara Lowry had become
internationally popular as a singer.
The President's secretary, Agnes Dattilo had just broken the speed
record for shorthand dictation.
Other girls had adopted various other interesting occupations: Dot
Holland was a commercial artist, and Stella Bailey, a journalist, had
just received her third Pulitzer Prize. Pat Coleman was now Mistress
of Ceremonies of a famous T, V, show, "Who Said What?"
Marilyn Reeves now writes "horror" stories for the movies.
Mayo Brothers genius was exceeded by the new doctor in charge,
of their clinic, Kay Mardis. Her indispensable nurse being Shirley
Cervetti. In their research laboratory was Mary Ruth Griffin, chief
chemist, who had been making some startling discoveries.
Chief X-Ray technician in the clinic was Mary Anne Wessels.
Nancy Dukes was now teaching in the same school as her old friend,
Lillian Schingle. Nancy was Professor of Laughter and Lillian was head
of the Energy Dept.
Turning to the sport page I found that our class was well represented
Patsy Hugo and Jeanette O'Brien had become professional basketball
players and Marilyn McCarver had attained great fame as the star mem-
ber of the United States Olympic Team.
Suddenly I could see no more but I found myself in a small candy
shop. Jean Murphy kept this very attractive candy shop. Perhaps the
lady who frequented her shop most was Bettye Reinhardt now married
and bringing her little boy down to buy candy. Mary Jo Fastabend
often came in, too with her twin girls,
Last I visited a quiet little suburban street. In one clean, neat white
house lived Gertrude Wehrum and her family. Not far away, sharing a
duplex were Jo Ann Dhuy and Charlyne Reddick who had been married
in a double ceremony just a month ago.
As I beheld-all-this a veil was drawn before my eyes and I awoke
to find myself turned back to the things that are. It has been a pleasant
dream for everyone was happy, It proved that only goodness, truth,
and prosperity shall follow the fair and talented members of the class
