Christ said, "What doth it proiit a man
if he gain the whole world and lose his
own soul?" A student at South Side
should never have occasion to forget
these words, tor at South Side his spirit-
ual welfare is carefully guarded.
The annual retreat affords each stu-
dent the opportunity tor a spiritual
checkup. Two priests are always avail-
able to give sound advice in and out of
the confessional. During Lent the stu-
dents were encouraged to attend daily
mass at school. The Way of the Cross
was held each Friday afternoon of Lent.
The student body joins as one in thank-
ing Father Lamb and Father Pieper for
their sympathetic interest in its spiritual

Although South Side has long been active in mission
work, it was not until this year that the Central Com
mittee was Iorrnally organized as a unit ot the C.S.M.C
under the title of "Our Lady of the Pillar
Under the leadership ot its moderator, Father Lamb
the Committee initiated a campaign to awaken the
students to an interest in the work of the Missions.
Generous contributions from the weekly mission col-
lections and irom the semi-annual paper drives were
sent to the Peter's Pence collection, and to the Marianist
missions in China. Donations to the annual Christmas
food drive reached an all-time high.
It was a banner year for the corporal works of mercy
at South Side.

The responsibility of upholding South Side's
oratorical reputation this year fell upon the
shoulders of a talented freshman, Clinton Bliss.
Bliss topped all school competition, and thus
earned the right to participate in the American
Legion oratorical contest. In this he missed
taking first place by a slim margin.
The lunior oratorical contest saw William
Guilfoy of 3C take first place with a speech on
l'Catholicism and Socialism." Frank Weber
and Harold Lankford of lunior C tied for second

The annual frosh-soph elocution contest uncovered
a surprising amount of speaking talent. Foremost
among the voluble gentlemen was the winner, fresh-
man Robert Callahan, who gave forth with a clever
selection entitled "How To Catch A Mouse", by
Ioshua Ienkins. Not far behind were sophomores
Iames Haring, loseph Garagiola and Ralph Schibig.

Though the record of South Side debaters was not
brilliant, it was, in the war time vernacular, "suc-
cesslul." They shared third place in the Catholic
School League, and joined several other schools in
fourth place of the Public School League.
Brother Frank Britz coached the boys both pro and
con on the proposition: "The Power of the Federal
Government Should Be Increased."
Belscher stood at the rostrum for every debate. He,
his veteran partner Muenster, and Binder were the
senior debaters. Iuniors Frei, Guilfoy, Oldeg, Ogle,
Iudge and Coughlin completed the squad.
South Side's spelling team, in the persons of Robert
Schroeder, Lawrence Lawton, Thomas Hannon,
Ioseph Miller, Charles Apel, loseph Lampe, Thomas
Wall, Robert Herguth and Eugene Kaelin, disposed
of McKinley on March 22 by spelling successfully
36 of 39 words to the opponents' 33. This proved
to be South Side's only victory in the spelling tour-
nament sponsored by radio station KSD.
The second round saw South Side take on an ex-
perienced team from Rosati-Kain. After a close battle
of syllables, Rosati-Kain won the match by spelling
33 of 36 words to South Side's 30.

Most generous Mothers,
We know we could write pages about
the work you have done for South Side.
Naturally then, we will not be able to
fully express our appreciation in these
Yet, we do wish to thank you. Thank you
first ot all for the benefits we have
enjoyed from your countless gifts of the
past years. And thank you for your
gratuity this year.
South Side has a band that is develop-
ing beautifully. It was through your
munificence that the band has new
instruments and through your constant
interest that the band is such a success.
You actively supported our social act-
ivities. You sponsored our annual boat
excursions, our banquets. A pavilion
joining the school and gym was built
under your patronage. For all this and
those innumerable lesser, yet essential,
services, we say thank you from the
bottom of our hearts.
