■ ., ' Y M;iPK ' ' " f :- ' V ' i " v ' ' ■ ' Excelsior Nazareth Academy St. Joseph High School Victoria, Texas Volume XXII 1969 Individual Enthusiasm . . . And All We Left Behind . . . Foreword You are this book. Enthusiasm sums up your school life. What else can you call cheering lustily at a football game, the joy of winning, the anticipation of beginning, and the thrill of excitement? What else describes the hope of the future, the pang of a disappointment, trust in a friend, and a sense of ful- fillment? You put yourself into everything you do, because that is the way to feel and enjoy life. These are never-to-be- forgotten memories. We on the annual staff have at- tempted to create a yearbook so you can remember them for years to come. The Seniors of 1969 are proud to leave this yearbook behind as a remembrance, and sincerely hope you will be proud of it, too. Proud of this book, proud of your school, and proud of your enthusiastic living. We hereby dedicate this work to all the wonderful people who contribute to make our two schools the best. We are sincerely grateful. g The people who give the small, needed donations and the large ones, who work In school carnival booths, put up these booths, keep the grounds; the students who develop school character, those who give help to the teachers and advise the students; peo- ple who form school policy and administer it; those who teach; those who better the system in any way . . . These are the ones we honor and acknowledge here. As you have made Nazareth Academy and Saint Joseph, we give them back to you in our EXCELSIOR. We have striven for ex- cellence because excellence is the standard of our schools. Thank You k. WBSS wsBi. III! ■LLl]llHa :-.- -•- iirogy.Bwiyrj r - ii i i if ii m g-a w« - ??

He has served St. Joseph and Nazareth for 22 years offering Mass, hearing confessions, giving religious conferences, teaching English and Religion, performing marriage ceremonies, baptizing, and other services. Other areas where Father Otting lived and worked are McBride hiigh School in St. Louis. Central Catholic in San Antonio, St. Mary ' s in St. Louis, and St. Mary ' s University. 10 Father Otting, S.M 1919-1969 ¥ His sense of humor and old fashioned, but very sound ideals, gain Father Otting many lasting friendships among the students of St. Joseph and Nazareth Academy. He is respected by young and old alike and his experiences with both are numerous and interesting. Father Otting is loved by many and considered a valuable person here at St. Joseph and Nazareth. II Confidence for STJ Displayed in $10,000 Success Drive The Membership Drive was organized during the sumnner of 1968. The purpose of the Drive was to raise funds for the continued operation of Saint Joseph School, and to establish a broad base of support for the school through the contributions of many individuals and families. The concept of the Drive was prepared by Msgr. Popp. and the parents of the students, through the Father ' s and Mother ' s Clubs, conducted the work associated with the campaign. The citizens of Victoria have responded generously to make this first annual effort a gratifying success. 12 St. Joseph School Incorporated has been and will continue to be the foundation of the school. Under the leadership of Mr. Thonnas Marian O ' Connor, these men have given invaluable time and money to STJ, Financial assistance, while becoming a con- cern of more and more parents and alumni, still rests heavily on the board. We express our deep gratitude and ad- miration to the board with hopes that the future will hold even more prosperity for St. Joseph. 13 Curiosity, Study, Achievement . . .

Activities 20 i FACULTY - ACADEMICS Two Busy Parishes — St. Mary ' s and Msgr. Popp, while at St. Mary ' s, approached his parishioners with an air of friendship. During the short time he was here, he initiated many projects, including the popular series of Vatican lectures and the St. Joe Financial Drive. Father Richard is always re ady to take the Holy Eucharist to anyone who is in need of Him. Father Leopold prepares sermons which are expressive, applicable, and truly interesting to everyone. Existing since 1824, SAINT MARY ' S is one of the most established of the Victoria churches. Its Gothic structure reflects sheer beauty — the true due of God. The church is closely connected with Nazareth activities, In particular. A newly introduced youth mass of song, guitar, student commentary, and stu- dent offering has met with much success each week. FATHER CLARENCE LEOPOLD, pastor of active St. Mary ' s, teaches Senior Religion at NA and was the one to sponsor the weekly folk mass. MONSIGNOR BERNARD POPP no longer serves at St. Mary ' s, but he will always be re- membered. His good humor and wisdom make him a fine example of the modern Church- man. 24 kjL H Our Lady of Sorrows — Exemplify Catholicism Time is expensive to Father. Vince.nt, as he is always handling sonne personal or church projecf. Entrusted with the spiritual care of all the Latin Americans in Victoria is the church of OUR LADY OF SORROWS. The prominent CYO, Friday and Saturday night binqos, dances, and charity drives are sponsored by the lively parrish. FATHER RICHARD TOAL acts as pastor with the dignity appropriate to his position. FATHER JUAN AYERBE is known as a very congenial and helpful person. FATHER VINCENT PATRIZI takes charge of many of the church activities with a zest inherent in him. BROTHER CHRISTOPHER DOYLE is often found working hard with his Boy Scouts. Brother Christopher welconnes all to the Sorrows Rectory and to patient guidance and understanding. When the routine paperwork i s finished, Father Juan knows it is time to make the rounds of his various priestly duties. 25 Priests Work Priestly Duties A standing example of firm, old-fashioned faith is the church of OUR LADY OF LOURDES. It has, however, nnoved agreeably with liturgical renewal. The parishioners have the privilege of attending Mass and the services in a church which is a nnixture of old and new — just the right mixture to feel closely the presence of God. People of all walks of life find spiritual com- fort within these sanctified walls. FATHER TOM COLLINS makes an excellent job of caring for his parish and its people. He is noted as a vigorous, pertinent sermon-giver and a sound confessor. Before the celebration of Mass, Fr. Collins prepares the gospel selection from the missal. Fr. Hermes can be found dividing his time between the pastoral duties and those of a personal nature. i If ' 26 Into Daily Living with Great Success Extensive reading, touching on our religion, characterizes Fr. Higgin ' s varied interests. OUR LADY OF VICTORY is a visible source of pride to Its parishioners who built It on their own contributions. It Itself Is characteris- tically modern and well-equipped. The church is closely connected with Our Lady of Victory School, a gramnnar school staffed by sisters, priests, and laymen. FATHER EUSTACE HERMES. Our Lady of Victory ' s pastor and the head of the Victoria Deanery, fulfills his role In both capacities with effectiveness and responsibility. FATHER PETER HIGGINS, a thoroughly Irish priest, is determined to help his people experience contact with God. FATHER T. VINKLAREK ' S unpredictable conversation is intermixed with an always pres- ent sense of religion. Fr. Vinklarek often finds an occasional stroll help- ful in order to relieve the stress of the day. -- V 27 Faculty - Most people believe that school Is for students and that that is the finish of it. Teenagers and youngsters get up in the nnorning, go to school all day and then conne honne in the afternoon. But what is this thing called school? School is a place for learning, for experience and for encountering the new. The people who show these students how to do these things can all be listed under one heading — faculty. This year has been one of experience for the teach- ing staff at both Nazareth and St. Joseph because this year, more so than any previous year, have been striving to establish closer ties between the two schools. The people on the following pages are those who have worked together to promote better academic conditions for students and deserve a large amount of recognition. To the faculty staff of Nazareth and St. Joseph ' s, we of the two schools say, " Thanks. " Mrs. Carl Hailing, S.J. Secretary Bro. Louis Mason, S.J. Vice-Principal 28 .dministration Bro. Al Por+ell, Vice-Principal A wide and varied knowledge of English literature is noted in Sister Al- berta, Senior sponsor and teacher of English III and IV, and Religion IV. She tries to inculcate in her students a de- sire and preparation for college. Sister also actively sponsors FTA. Individually . . . They Serve Sister Carmelita is known for striving for per- fection. As Freshman sponsor she tries to instill this quality in her girls. She is moderator for the two Spanish Clubs, and the newly or- ganized Future Nurses of America. In addi- tion, she teaches Spanish I, Spanish II, English I, and Religion I, injecting into each subject a refreshing spark of new Ideas. Questioning in class is essential to learning. Sister Anna Marie knows this and encourages individual reasoning. She teaches Geonnetry, Religion II, and Biology at Nazareth and at St. Joseph. She is also Sophonaore Class sponsor. Her open, intelligent mind invites nnany to confide in her. Make Us Better Lively, active, sports-minded, quick, laughing — these are the qualities Sister Raphael is made up of. Students appreciate and learn in her lively classes of Algebra I and II. Sister has charge of the P. E. classes and takes great pride in her varsity team, the Jettes. As sponsor for the Junior Class she is very successful. 31 Constantly They Teach Us Sister Pauline expects every- one to apply themselves In her classes and, accordingly, everyone does. Besides shoul- dering the responsibility of be- ing Student Council sponsor, she teaches the span of busi- ness courses — Typing, Book- keeping, Econonnics, and Sec- retarial Training. Many a stu- dent has come to her asking for help in personal problems and she never fails in counsel- ing them. • 32 Teaching Religion III, Eng- lish II, and speech takes up much of Sister Perpetua ' s ac- tivity time. She is devoted to the Drama Club and Legion of Mary and encourages the girls to participate in these worthwhile clubs. Another of her responsibilities is the sup- ervising of the promising li- brary at the New Mother- house. Her devotion to the Blessed Virgin is a source of inspiration to all. Sister Blanche, an efficient per- son, is dedicated to her library work. Conducting two classes of Library Science and acting as the school librarian, she hopes to in- still In Nazareth Academy stu- dents a respect for the books that are so innportant to us. More and more outside reading is being re- quired in classes and Sister is a wonderful help to the girls. Getting involved Is an integral part of Sisfer Alma ' s character. As Plloteer, Choral Club, and TrI-M moderator. Sister Is the helping hand who leads the way to the smooth running of her school activ- ities. By seeing the girls daily and listening to them, she has acquired a feeling of respect from them. Civics, American History, and World History are subjects that Sister Eugenia teaches and loves to teach. She strives toward a re- laxed atmosphere In class, though she insists on interest and atten- tion. Because she considers cur- rent news essential In her courses, she places emphasis on listening to the radio and reading news- papers and articles. 33 The Versati] The faculty at St. Joe ' s is forever at work trying to Improve the quality of the school. Each is willing to give of his free time to care for one of the student activities that begins at the sound of the last bell. Whether it be a pause at the door at the end of a long foot- ball practice, these everyday things that the faculty members do for the students reveals their real interest in St. Joe ' s. Student-Faculty Game Bro. Tom Klingert " acuity The joys of a Western Day spent together hard-fought student-faculty basketball game cements a relationship between the two that complements the one established in the classroom. All of the faculty ' s efforts and their patience in dealing with the students comes from their sense of working together. This is the mark of their Brotherhood which is shared with all at St. Joseph ' s. Brothers at meal. Bro. Dave Pozzi and Bro. Ralph Krull. 36 The Faculty Extends a Helping Hand Fr. Clement Otting Bro. Fred Hausch 37 Religion, is the core of us — and of our learning. First, we try to attain our own individual under- standing of God. Then, we can concentrate on studying the findings and conclusions of man. Religion at Nazareth and St. Joseph is Interest- ing. The students are free to ask questions. Modem problems are discussed along with age-old truths. High Standards Achieved in Stud) 38 An ENGLISH course in every year of schooling is the only way to learn to use our language effectively and well. However, not only language structure and usage are studied, but also the history of its development and the great characteristic literature of the world. Most students especially enjoy reading the great masterpieces they have always heard of. of Literature and Theology 39 Math and Science Involve Textbook, slide rule, ruler, paper and pencil, chalk, number charts, theorems, protractor, compass, ideas, and willing- ness — these are the tools of today ' s MATH student. With the basics of that study we are told that we can master any prob- lem or course on individual thinking and analysis. But it ' s the basics that we now struggle to memorize and comprehend . . . We study algebra, geometry, analysis, trigonometry. 40 nalyzation and Experimentation Yes, to know the basics of math leads to initial understanding of other fields with SCIENCE prom- inently included. Science is the opportunity of the future. The world is broadening more and more in this study of nature and its forces. We, the students of today, benefit directly by taking our science courses — physical science, biology, chemistry, physics — seriously. We learn facts through experimentation and " thinking it out. " As we do learn, our minds are strengthened and prepared for the world we will soon face. 41 An Interaction of Languages and Business As students, we are expected to fluently know, speak, and write in our native language, English. In addition, nnost of us really desire the accom- plishment of learning the basics of some FOREIGN LANGUAGE. Naz- areth Academy and St. Joseph offer Latin and Spanish — two profitable and applicable languages. Students have found that knowledge of these helps in the studying of their subjects. 42 Create a Well-Rounded Personality What Is included in the BUSINESS COURSES? Secretarial training, bookkeeping, typing, econonnics, and shorthand is the loaded reply. No person has yet carried a schedule including all these subjects, but the more included, the happier the person. These are courses of practical use which will be of indispensable help in later life. The modern techniques and equip- ment of the business world are introduced and studied. Production rates are increased and increased to the student ' s capacity. Knowledge in this area benefits any- one — not just those hoping for a business career. To know how to type, how to maintain a budget, or how to keep books, is beneficial to anyone. 43 Social Studies and Numerous Electives HISTORY is the record of the past events in our nation and in the world. In world prob- lems, civics, World History, and American His- tory, we study our heritage. It can be con- sidered a patriotic duty to know something about the world in which we live. In Library Science we learn the techniques and rules of the universal library. This aids our search for learning. Two elec+ives merit recognition — SPEECH at Nazareth and MECHANICAL DRAWING at St. Joseph. In speech we openly express our- selves in speeches, plays, poem recitals, and various other methods. In mechanical drawing we find an interest in the drawing of tools essential in the man ' s business world. Both voluntary interests add something of variety to the usual academic subjects. I trengthen the Student ' s Outlook on Life The official class of JOURNALISM at St. Joe and NA concerns putting out the school newspapers — The Blue and White and The NA Chats. However, an unofficial class of journalism students work together to create the combined school yearbook, THE EX- CELSIOR. Hard work and deep creative pride are involved in these undertakings. For this reason, these classes sometimes mean the most personally. 45 ORGANIZATIONS Governing Bod PRESIDENT Mary Beth Stevenson Senior VICE-PRESIDENT Mary Seger Every establishmenf must have a backbone for support, a flame with which to set afire the spirit of involvement, enthusiasm, and leadership to be the guide of all undertakings. For Nazareth Academy, all these things are combined into the Student Council. This year, Council members de- cided upon the purchase of a library carpet. In order to do so the SC sponsored a candy sale. Members wholeheartedly ignited the desire within students to support this project thus, it was successful. This is but one example of the ways in which the NA Stu- dent Council benefits its school. SECRETARY Nancy Fossati Senior In 1968-69, these twenty-four mem- bers of Student Council represented the various clubs and classes of NA. Aft I gnites Spirit DISTRICT SECRETARY-TREASURER Karen Strawbridge Senior As adviser of the ' 68- ' 69 Student Council, Sister Pauline works closely with Mary Beth, as well as attending and supervising all meetings. Student Council member Elaine Garza, takes pride in keeping the library carpet lovely. This carpet was purchased by the Student Council for the beautification of the school. 49 St. Joe ' s Student Counci The Saint Joseph ' s Student Council, under the able leadership of Bro. David Pozzi, has done many things this year to keep the wheels of progress grinding smoothly. It has also organized and di- rected many activities, both on and off campus, for the s tudent body. Among these activities are Western Day, Sports Intermurals, hlomecoming Week, and Prom. Student campaigners stir up interest for Council elections Larry Hensley, Treasurer, listens intently to rennarks of President, Smithy Welder. Mike Miori was this year ' s Vice-President and Harold Jurica was Secretary. KA ets Pace of Student Body Dale Kalinowski and Conrad Thibodeaux take their Stu- dent Council duties seriously. Student Body responds to the activities of the Student Council. Bro. David Pozzi, Moderator, patiently brings Student Council nnembers to re- sponsible leadership within the school. 51 Joint Council A quite young organization, the joint council plays a vital part in the relationship between Nazareth Academy and St. Joseph High Schools. This year members initiated various projects, one of which was the production and distribution of student handbooks containing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all high school students. Other events included a joint western day at St. Joe ' s, pep rallies at both schools, and caravans to out-of-town football games. In 1968-69 the joint council boasted a membership of approximately twenty. Meetings were held at STJ in the high school library. These meetings were presided over by Smithy Welder and moderated under the helpful guidance of Brother David Pozzl. It Is through projects such as those mentioned above, along with the loyalty and determination for betterment of JC members that the small gaps existing between NA and STJ are bridged. Smithy Welder, ready for unity, presides over meetings of the Joint Council. n " n %x r iri ni a.J!V - ' i f - ' ' .. 1 ' BP « JC members meet weekly on Wednesday nights to discuss and vote on oncoming events. 52 Jnites Schools Showing the great spirit of NA and STJ, Marilyn Thompson ' s car is decorated for participation in a JC sponsored caravan to Vanderbilt. Taking time out to act as moderator of the joint council, Bro. Pozzi listens in- tently to the discussion being held. Council member, Jerry Ondrias, supports JC by selling Marilyn Thompson a student handbook. 53 National Honor Society officers are Charlene Dornak, treasurer, Melita Murphy, secretary, Kim Latimer, vice- president and Mary Martha Bar- rientos, president. Society Enco urages Scholastic Achievement National Honor Society is a club honoring those girls of high scholastic standing, leadership, char- acter and service here at NA. Qualifications for membership in the club, include maintaining a required average for a designated time with no grade lower than 85. If a girl receives a grade below this, she is placed on probation and given a chance to raise her grade. This recognition is a great honor, but like all honors, must be worked for in order to be deserved. Mary Sue Hebner, Mary Ann Byrne, Morgan Dunn, Mary Seger, and Mary Beth Stevenson review qualifications for membership in the Society. Society members, Catherine Velasquez, Theresa Villarreal, Mary Catherine Knowlan, Karen Strawbridge, and Chris Gormely type programs for the initiation ceremonies. Alice PozzI, Margaret Bolech, Nancy Fossati, Cynthia Guajardo, Linda Zepeda and Mary Jane Dornak prepare decorations for an upco ming program. 54 ISfHS Provides Leadership The Nafional Honor Society is a national organization for outstanding high school students selected on the basis of Leadership, Character, Service, and Scholarship. The Society ' s members are outstanding credits to the school and the student body. Junior members of NHS are (standing) Jim Janda, Mark Holm, Albert Humphrey, Ken- neth Kreici, and Bert Bode, (seated) Patrick Hennessy, Michael Wagner, and Dennis Mc- Adams. Senior members of the NHS are James Maikoetter, Jimmy Rossett and Gary Halepeska. 55 Piloteers Strive foi The problem of the correct way to perform a dance step perplexes these Piloteers. Helping to keep Piloteers filled with spirit during the games is a part of Karan ' s job as drum major. Sr. M. Alma M oderator Piloteer announcer during the half time is Mary Ann Byrne. 56 Excellence and Unity Leading hand motions in the stands is Jr. captain, Sandy Kruppa. The anxiety of an approach- ing touchdown overwhelms en- thusiastic Piloteers. Moments before the half time are ones of antici- pation for Piloteer, Lin- da Lazarin and bands- man, George Mathews. S7 Courtney Wash Janet Denison Mascots Add Youthfulness to Spirit Taking part In pre-game activities is included in the role of Flyer Mascots. Flyer mascots add much to the excltefnent and youthfulness of the football games. Chosen by the cheerleaders, the mascots participate in all cheering activities. They are Introduced at each game, along with -the cheerleaders and they are a favorite among all Piloteers. During the summer these two spirited boosters meet with the cheerfeaders in order to be- come acquainted with the cheering procedures. Janet and Courtney do a fine job as Flyer Mascots, and will always hold a special place in everyone ' s heart. Although she has no perfected form, Janet Denison still does a fine job cheering for the team. 58 Piloteer captains Mary Martha Barrientos, Maxine Mayer. Cecilia Kalinowski, and Sandy Kruppa look on as Alice Pozzi explains the daily attendance record. Piloteer Officers Manage Group Mary Sue Hebner and Melita Murphy, first lieutenants, review the dance for the week. The Piloteers were fortunate to have fifteen dedicated officers this term. It is the responsibility of these girls to choreograph all dances and hand motions of the group. Qualifications for holding this position are that the girl main- tain an eighty-five average with an A in conduct and she must have shown outstanding work in the Piloteers. When the football season is over these girls meet weekly to plan out activities for the remain- ing Piloteers during the rest of the school year. Some of these activities include exercising, mak- ing up new dance steps, creating hand motions, and playing base- ball and volleyball. g A ' E w tl r S K ' " ..- ihi ' _ gM| DRUM MAJOR Karen Huegele Senior Obviously, as Margaret Bolech, Cathy Velasquez, and Marilyn Franke know officer ' s iobs are not all work. Deciding the correct way of executing hand motions is one of the many jobs of second lieutenants Lynn O ' Conner, Cyndy Patek, Melissa Hinojosa, and Georganne Joseph. 59 Jernie Denison Senior Sharon Pateic Senior Melita Murphy Senior Head Cheerleader Leaders Spur " We ' ve got Spirit! " was the cry this year. During the football season the loyalty and enthusiasm to drive a teann on to many wins is spurred on in everyone by these six devotfed cheerleaders. Attending Sam Houston State Teachers College for cheerleaders, camp during the summer enables these girls to adopt many new cheers ' and chants. Thus, new cheers are taught to the student body and greater yelling is pro- moted while Flyer Spirit is spurred on. As well as attending camp and cheering at the football games, 60 ' Flyer Spirit the cheerleaders are regular mem- bers of the Piloteers. This includes attending all practices, marching in all half-time shows, participat- ing in parades and learning all Piloteer routines. During pre-school practices they work with the other Piloteers, instructing them as to the correct method of yelling the cheers. Football games and pep rallies do not complete the activities of these cheerleaders. They ate pre- sent at all basketball games, both of St. Joe and N.A. and, there also. Incite spirit for the teams. Morgan Dunn Junior Anne Hatch Senior Kim Latimer 61 These are the members of the l968- ' 69 St. Joseph Band. Band Produce: The St. Joseph ' s band, though small in number, pro- vided us with splendid support and half-time entertainment during the football season. Under the direction of Mr. Maurice Adcock, the band members follow up their foot- ball performances with their spring concert. The St. Joseph Band performin 62 Band officers this year are Gilbert De Los Santos, Robet+ Soliz, James Burger, Rudy De Los Santos and Dennis Borowics.

Albert Humphrey, President Originated this year, the Science Ciub is an organiza- tion for those boys who wish to extend their interest in Science beyond the classroom. Boasting a fine attendance, this Club has great opti- mism for their future. The highlight of its activities this year was their visit to the National Aeronautics Space Administration in Houston. Bill Stefica, Ken Krejci, and Kort Angerstein prepare to examine the formation of stars. 64 TALA Contributes to Library Checking in and out books is a part of the di schedule followed by library aid, Debbi Tondre. TALA, better known as the Teenage Library Associa- tion is a club with the purposes of keeping order in the library and safe-guarding its facilities. The members of the TALA play a unique role in the function of the library by arranging a variety of displays to attract readers, keeping books repaired, and tending to overdue slips. Although working in the library takes up much o f the time of these girls, learning the how ' s, where ' s, and what ' s of it is of most importance. The knowledge gained by being in this class will be of benefit to them for many years to come. Patty Knowlan gains the ex perience of using the card cata logue. Nazareth Academy TALA officers are Linda De Dear, co-ordinator; Gail Prince, vice-presi- dent; Pamela Brown, president; Libby Rendon, treasurer; and Blanche De Leon, secretary. Ginger Duke and Mary Denison manage to find time for a typical freshman prank while taking study hall. 6S Members of the FTA pose before at- tending one of the meetings held every three weeks in the Student Council lounge. Future Teachers Further Experience Any girl classified as either a junior or a senior is eligible to be a member of the FTA. Members of fhis organization study many of the aspects involved in playing the part of " instructor of minds. " Experience is vital as is education. Dedicated men and women are needed to fulfill the jobs of professors at all levels of schooling and being a member of the Future- Teachers of America is the first step to achieving this fulfillment. FTA officers, Margaret Bolech, Marilyn Franlce, and Sharon Pateic, amuse them- selves over a typical Alice " Pozzi Pranlc. " Cyndy Patek gains experience as a mem- ber of FTA by teaching a class every Monday evening. 66 FNA officers, Steffiani Sienklewicz and Monica Payne, reporter; Sharon DeLire, president; Mary Martha Barrierrtos, vice-president; Mary Vogt, treasurer; and Marilyn Franke, secretary; contemplate upon sug- gested upcoming plans. FNA Promote Medical Interest Future Nurses of America is an organization designed with the purpose of cultivating the interest of high school girls interested in a medical or nursing career. This year the group, under the moderation of Sister M. Carmelita, has been involved in i various phases of work connected with this ' future. Members do volunteer work as pink ladies at the local hospitals, create, make, and pre- sent cheerful favors to hospitalized persons, and study the duties of those who choose an occupation in the nursing field. The medical career is flourishing but it de- mands dedicated people — people with the de- termination and willingness to help others. This forming of determination and of willingness is an integral goal of the FNA. Members of Future Nurses work diligently preparing favors to present to hospitalized persons for various occasions. 67 Spanish demands many moments of concentration. For this reason students take advantage of a study period to work out complicated aspects of the iar.guagc. Language Clubs Officers for the year, Morgan Dunn, pres- ident, Jane Vivian, treasurer, and Bever- ly Warren, vice pres- ident, look on to make sure that Elaine Galvan is correctly fulfilling her job as secretary. 68 Brother Tom Klingert teaches the class how to converse in the Latin Language. Ann Holm and Jeff Latimer delve thoughtfully into the complexities of Latin. Language Clubs " Veni, Vidi, Vici. " ! ' l came, I saw, I conquered. " And the Latin Class of NA and St. Joe has come, Is seeing, and will conquer Latin — Its culture and its structure. This Is the first year that the Latin class has consisted of both girls and boys. Also new is the fa ct that a brother instructs the class. It seems not to cause any disturbance because if one passes down the halls, he can hear many Interesting things — one of which is Latin sounds being permeated throughout. Donna Schaar and Danny Fridel practice conjuga- tions. 1968 Latin officers are Ann Holm, treasurer; Pat Lau, secre- tary; Conrad Thibodeaux, vice-president; and Mimi Danko, president. 69 I I I NAZARTH ACADEMY CHORAL Tri-M Lives on in Music m Sister M. Aima presents Sue Mares with the TrI-M emblem which signifies membership in this organization. " Music alone shall live! " And the Modern Music Masters, com- nnonly known as Tri-M, shall flourish with it. Under the mod- eration of Sister M. Alma, the NA chapter of Tri-M boasts a membership of approximately forty-five. The purpose of this organization is to promote a clearer understanding and a fuller appreciation of the music of all times. With the function of per- forming at school and self-sponsored activities, the Tri-M plays a vital part in the cultural education of Nazarites. Also NA is represented annually at the music festivals held in San Antonio. This is a time-consuming activity " and involves much preparation. Mary Jane Dornak, president, is aided in her duties in Tri-M by Maxine Mayer, vice-president, and Charlene Dornak, secretary. 70 Legion of Mary officers, Mary Mar- garet Hernandez, Rosennary De- Lire, Janie Trevino, Debby David- son, and Joy Pagel, with Sister Perpetua, begin the weekly meet- ing by saying a prayer. Legion Sets Mary as Model The Legion of Mary, under the moderation of Sister M. Perpetua. is a beneficial and profitable organization. It ' s main purpose is to increase the understanding of the doctrines of the Church and a devout devotion to Mary. Various activities as projects include visiting the sick, spending time with folks in convalescent homes, and teaching underprivileged children. The army of Mary is a very worthwhile organization and has accomplished much this year for the Church of God. Devotion to Mary, as an ideal, is the backbone of the NA Legion of Mary. Some of this years members are Janie Treveno, Debbie Davidson, Debbie Vanelli, Sharon Bonorden, Nancy DeLIre, Mary Margaret Hernandez, Sharon Pateic, Mary Beth Stevenson, and Bernie Denison. 71 Although much rehearsing has been conducted, last min- ute preparation is intricate in a fine production. 1968-1969 Speech I officers are president, Diane Bernhard; vice-president, Ann Holm; secretary, Donna Schaar; treasurer. Susan Svoboda; cleric, Linda Zepeda; parliamentarian, Gail Bianchi; and reporter. Brenda Zepeda. Drama Curriculum Interests Students Speech II officers Judi DeLane, president; Pat Hanselman, vice-president; Monica Payne, secre- tary; Becky Chamrad, treasurer; Sandy Hobbs, parliamentarian; Cecilia Kalinowski, clerk; and Pat Krenek, reporter discuss club business. Speech members take final bow after present- ing to all NA a play at the annual Christmas program. 72 Quill and Scroll officers: Mary Catherine Knowlan, president; Nancy Martin, treasurer: Martha Ward, vice-president; Chris Gormely, secretary; all take notes on attractive aspects of last year ' s annual. I Quill and Scroll Honors Students An honorary organization is not often seen in the linnelight. Quill and Scroll is such an organization at Nazareth, but, in addition to being honorary, it is honor. The twenty-three members knov this and realize it and can be justly proud that they are members. Girls accepted in this club are superior in their journalism work. All of this year ' s members worked on the NA Chats in their Junior year and on the EXCELSIOR as Seniors. After two years of actual experi- ence, writing, editing, business manage- ment, layout planning, and production are pretty well known and understood. There ' s no surer way of learning journalistic methods than having to meet a final dead- line yourself. Quill and Scroll officers are actually only honorary, and the club carries no activities. This year, as last year, the entire staff gained entrance into the club. It is truly an honor. Nancy Martin, Mary DiStefano, and Bethie Taylor give their attention to the subject on the agenda. 73 Parents Work Mother ' s club officers are Mrs. Maikoet- ter, Mrs. Cullen, Mrs. Willemin and Mrs. Neisner. Mgsr. Popp heads a discussion of fathers and mothers at one of their joint meet- ings. Mr. Latimer, Father ' s Club President, points out a matter of business to Treasurer, Mr. Sohllte. Other members of the Officers are Mr. Ozuna and Mr. Jordan. 74 for School ' P The Mother ' s Club is mainly centered around the band. By sponsoring festivals during the year, they raise money to supply the band with the needed equipment. The Mother ' s Club also keeps the library, both in the high school and the grade school, up to date with new books. The main purpose of the Father ' s Club is Athletics. Sports demand a great deal of money, all of which the Father ' s Club provides. They raise this money through their annual turkey drive at Thanksgiving and several festi- vals throughout the year. Mrs. Drost and Mrs. Spears serve at one of the Mother ' s Club festivals. Mr. Stevenson, Mrs. Hollan. and Mrs. innocent! collect raffle tickets. 75 Parent Teachers Benefits Nazareth Officers of the 1968-1969 PTA are Mrs. J. DeLane, corresponding sec- retary; Mrs. A. Harrison, presi- dent; Mrs. R. Jordon, secretary; Mrs. D. Trunnan, vice-president; and Mrs. J. Rech, treasurer. The Parent Teachers Associa- tion of Nazareth Acadenny is an organization beneficial in many ways to the students, as well as to the teachers of NA. Heretofore, nneetings were held at 3:30 p.m. This year, however, the time of 7:30 was adopted; a time which proved more ap- propriate. This was signified by a constant attendance of approxi- mately over one hundred. As a special thanks to the PTA, Nazareth honors its members with an annual breakfast. This is but a little in return for the great things contributed by the PTA to the school. Judging entries of the NA Easter Bonnet Contest are Mrs. Harri- son and Mrs. Cornelius. interested and enthusiastic, par- ents of Nazarltes attend meetings of the PTA. 76 Mothers Lend Helping-Hand on Project Piloteer Mothers Club Officers: Mrs. Stevenson, president; Mrs. Franke, secretary; Mrs. DeLane, treasurer; and Mrs. Latimer, vice president; inspect every girl ' s uniform to achieve uniformity. Mr. Holm, a " booming " speaker, calls the bingo num- bers at the annual Piloteer project. Mr. and Mrs. Hatch are willing chaperones for the Piloteer dance, which was an overwhelming success. The president of the Piloteer Mother ' s Club, Mrs. Stevenson, checks with Sister Alma on final details of the Piloteer project. 77 Custodians Merit Who are the people behind the scenes — the people who help make our schools what they are? There is more to a school than teachers teaching and students learning. Someone has to prepare the meals, polish the floors, open and close the windows, and take care of the place in which we spend a good deal of our time. Although students don ' t really seem to appreciate the work done by these devoted people, if their opinions were asked concerning this, the unanijjious answer would be, " hlow could we do without them? " Acting as custodian of NA gives Mr. Brosch the opportunity to gain much respect from Nazarites. Feeding and pleasing six hundred hungry Nazarites is no Catherine, and Mrs. Angeline Eisman prepare hearty meals easy task, but Mrs. John Brosch, Mrs. John H. Decker, Sister daily which are fit for a king. 78 Students ' Appreciation The cafeteria is run under the able supervision of Mrs. Richter, Mrs. Nevlud, and Mrs. Mares. The physical upkeep of both the stu- dents and the school buildings are always of importance. The daily efforts put in by the custodians at St. Joe ' s enables the students and the teachers to concentrate better on the studies at hand. Mr. James Grebe brings all his skills to the upkeep of the school. 79 ACTIVITIES Annual Staff Strives Karyn Shermer takes a break in between the processing of layouts. Mary Helen DiStephano fills out a subscription forna for fresh- nnan, Karen Stenseth. Teamwork is one of the keys to putting out a successful annual as is demonstrated by James Rossett, Bro. Travis, Maxine Mayer, Mary Jane Dornak, Donna Kutchka, Gary Halepeska, Howland Gilley, and Alice Pozzi. Photographers, Mary Catherine Knowlan and Patrick Hennessey, were the back- bone of the yearbook, as they took most of the pictures furnished. 82 for Perfection Bro. Travis and Mike McCamy try to devise a layout while Monty Meier puts his on a triplicate. A staff often taken for granted is the annual staff. However, the people who are nnembers of this board put nnuch work into the yearbook. It is a requirennent, as far as Nazarites are concerned, to have been in the journal- ism class in the junior year. Although St. Joe ' s does not have sucK a class offered, students gain experience by working on the BLUE AND WHITE. These requirements are ' necessary in order that students may become acquainted with the fundamentals of annual processing and journalistic prin- ciples mandatory in putting out a good yearbook. Melita Murphy tries to choose a picture for her section while Sharon Pateic and Anne Hatch work on layouts. Monty Meier and Robert Lau work Saturdays to complete their division. t Editors for the 1968-1969 Nazareth Academy and St. Joseph EXCEL- SIOR are Joe Carruth, Alice Pozzi, and Mary Jane Dornak. tA NA CHATS Staff Learning the iournalis+ic prin- ciple of the 20th century is a primary concern of the Journalism class of NA. Along with publish- ing a periodic newspaper, this class endeavors to extricate from the paragraphs of a book the knowledge necessary to fit into the literary world. NA Chats staff members take pride in the school paper. It ' s this way, " says Sandy Kruppa to fellow staff members. As a special activity, these girls, composing the staff of the literary magazine, work to put forth a new and exciting type of literary work. 84 Blue White Broadcasts the News The Blue White is a four page school newspaper published by the Junior class. The Blue White provides the students, and people connected with the school, with an excellent source of in- fornnation of St. Joseph ' s activities. Under their moderator, Fr. Pat McNulty, the editors and staff work diligently to produce the best possible newspaper. Moderator, Fr. Patrick McNulty and editors, Jim Janda and Alfred DeLuna go over the layouts. Don Truman, Alfred De- Luna, Mike Wagn er, Mike Hennessey, Pat Hennes- sey, and Albert Humph- rey help to write an article for the paper. 85 1968 Homecoming The annual bonfire is a symbol of spirit, determination, loyalty, and the beginning of an exciting weekend. On the night before the big Homecoming game, a pep rally is held at St. Joseph ' s by the light of a bonfire. At this time, all realize that the special night of the game and of the dance will soon be no longer the future, but the present. The flames of the fire was high as are the hearts of anticipat ' ng students. It ' s Homecom- ing and it ' s great! The 1968-1969 Homecoming bonfire blazes ever upward signifying the Flyers ' strife for perfection. Veronica Barrientos takes on the roles of a Hallettsville Indian who realizes a defeat in advance. 86 Proves Successful Preparation, co-operation, tinne, effort, and connpletion are the key words to a successful Homecoming program. No bonfire is just built in a few minutes; nor is a dance held on the spur of the moment. There is more to it than that — quite a bit more. The Junior class at St. Joseph ' s in the class in charge of organizing these activities. Com- mittees are formed and work begun on both the dance and the pep rally. Someone must tend to the band, the decorations, the col- lecting of wood for the fire, the building of the fire and the pep rally agenda. No, these things do not just happen over- night, and because they don ' t they are greatly enjoyed and appreciated. Members of the Junior dance. class give up time to help decorate for the Flyer team members, Jimmy Rossett, John Carver, Gary Halepesica, and Rudy Ozuna carry torches to light the bonfire. 87 Senior Activities Include You ' re a Senior now! It ' s the last year — the biggest and the best. It ' s the year you ' ve been waiting for and you make the most of it. The Senior classes of 1969 have realized many things this year. For most, they ' re grown-up. They ' ve experienced all kinds of sorrows and heartbreaks — for senior year is a decisive one. But the joys and hap- pinesses are far more numerous and the classes emerge happy and laughing and enthusiastic. We ' ve learned what is important to us and to others, what we must do, how to do things. Now we ' ve only the future to learn. Sandy Hobbs and Virginia Wearden present the Senior mascot " Pepto " . The seniors share their Christmas joys with the orphans at the Browson hlome by having Joan Konarik depict the part of Santa Claus and his helper Donna Lyssy. m bys and Sorrows ■•4 1. » «•• Graduation not only nnarks the end of this full and exciting year, but also completion of twelve hard years of gaining knowledge. Sharon Patek gives Bethie Taylor a " boost " while spending the evening at Bill ' s Rink. 89 " All riders mount, " is the order given by Tom Moscatelli. The Old Ranger Rides Again Jim Rossett " sacks ' em up " to win pig chase. Every year, the students at St. Joseph ' s take to the task of playing the Old Ranger of Death Valley Days. That is, they give us a picture of how the West really was. The most Western of Western Day events is the fast draw contest. Other related events are the wild bucking barrel contest and the cow milking Contest. Served with the milk is the pie " of the pie eating contest and the eggs of the egg toss. After the meal of pie, milk, and eggs there is the pig chase (no reflection on the pie-eaters) and a log sawing contest for those who like to sleep. For those who stay awake for the action, a three-legged race, the bicycle race, and the sack race are there to challenge them. As one of the finales of the day, the tug- of-war determines which class can throw the greatest weight behind its efforts. 90 John Mares and Dan Stryk look on as their classmates vigorously tug their way to victory. Probably not many cowboys of the old West tried to tie ribbons on the tails of calves, but Steve Janda seemed to have enjoyed the challenge. Howland Giliey and Robert Dodds try their hand at log sawing. 91 Cathy Motal, Stephanie Sienkiewic7. and Monica Payne admire sonne products of their connpanies. Veronica Barrientos and Dianne Guitierrez explain the nnethod that their company uses while teaching dancing to Joyce Mitchell. Junior Achievemen Inspires Youths Excitement, learning, fun, experi- ence — all of these things are cona- bined to form what is known as Junior Achievement, commonly called J. A. A member of this organization is not a member of a things, but never does them. J. A. does things and the things that are done in J. A. are worth while. A member of this organization learns how a company is run and what better way is there to learn than to run one and be part of one. This is what it ' s all about. There are the selling of stocks, the election of officers, the manufacturing and sell- ing of products, and finally the dis- solving of a company which will be dormant until the next school year. Yes, this is what J. A. is all about. Learning to manipulate an electric saw is one of the many opportunities which Kenneth Krejci has -as a J. A. Member. 99 Americanism Week Instills Patriotism NA takes one week every year for patriotic display. Chairmen for Americanism Week were Kim Latimer, Girls ' State Representative, and Morgan Dunn, Farm Bureau Representative. A highlight of the week was an Impressive flag ceremony coordinated by the seniors and choral group. During the assembly a reading entitled " Old Glory " made everyone pause and reflect her American Heritage. During American History class, Morgan Dunn explains the symbolism of the United States Flag. Smithy Welder and Kim Latimer confer notes on the discussions and programs in which they parti- cipated while at Boys ' State and Girls ' State. The choral group joins in celebrating Americanism Week by leading the student body in " America, the Beautiful. " 93 May Processions Staged Where dedication and praise are due dedication and praise should be given. This is the purpose of two processions of cerennonies staged by Nazareth In May — nannely, the May Crowning and the Living Rosary. From the Senior class a girl is chosen to crown the Blessed Mother and four others are chosen to lead the procession. In the living rosary each class is repre- sented by a certain nunnber of students, each of whom in turn represents one prayer of the rosary. Paying homage to Our Lady, the priests offers the holy Mass. Brenda Zepeda, Margaret Bolech, Linda Zepeda and Mary Jane Dornak lead the May Crowning Procession. f Seniors proclaim devotion to Mary as they individually approach her throne. €tA Preceding the bearer of the Holy Eucharist is the priest carrying a crucifix — symbol of Christ as a redeemer — flanked on either side by a candle. r A profession of faith in Christ as the King is 4 publically made by par- t ticipants in the annual procession . The members of many dubs and organizations march together as a symbol of unity. Annual Procession Held in Honor of Christ Father McNulty speaks to the congregation about the significance of the Christ the King activities. The feast of Christ the King is celebrated annually by a series of events beginning with an or- ganized procession dov n the Main Street of Victoria. People of all ages march in this procession say- ing the rosary as they go. When everyone reaches St. Mary ' s Hall, a benediction service is held. To some, marching in this pro- cession may be a great sacrifice, but considering the sacrifice made by Christ, it ' s only a little to give up a couple of hours to show Him one ' s appreciation. 9S Nazarites Witnesj Impact Days Sister Alberta spends time discussing out-of- state colleges with Virginia Wearden. Forming small groups to talk about a given subject are freshmen, Sharon Jurica, Joyce Kouba, Sister Carmelita, Elaine Galvan, Dianne Knlppa, and Connie Orsak. Annually a retreat is held at NA offering Nazarites an opportunity to spend time examining themselves and forming resolutions for the betterment of their lives. In 1968 a new method of conducting the retreat was adopted. Instead of having a two-day session, two one-day sessions called " Impact days " were on the schedule. Also different was the fact that between conferences the girls divided into groups where various topics were discussed. Retreats held in 1968 proved to be very beneficial to all and many will agree to the fact that this type should be repeated in years to conne. The time of retreat Is one of promoting a better relationship between classes as Is shown by Mary Muer, Jean Lara, Marilyn Goldman, ar d Doris Strelczyk. Juniors, Marilyn Franke, Mary Vogt, Terry Vlllerreal, and Margaret Wagner attend one of the Masses offered during retreat. 96 Retreat Master Father Sargeant provokes discussions . . . and celebrates Mass ... w under both species. Innovations Mark " Impact Day " The retreat master at St. Joseph lis year was Fr. Robert Sargeant. e opened the retreat with a dis- cussion which was followed by an iteresting film. New Innovations )rought Into the afternoon sessions were panel discussions presented by girls from N.A. and Victoria college centering around the prev- alent topic of dating. The day was terminated with Mass in the cafeteria. I John Janda and Mike Hennessey provide nnusic during retreat. 97 Nativity Relived by Choral and Speech Sandra Hobbs portrays the character of the Vir- gin Mary, while Judi De- Lane plays the part of Mary ' s spouse, Joseph. Bearing the gifts of the wise nnen are Yolanda Hinoiosa and Becky Chamrad. Perhaps the most beautiful and heart warming experience at Christmas time Is the reliving of the Nativity of the babe, Jesus. This re-encounter with that Incident is offered to all by members of the NA speech department undSr the direction of Sister M. Perpetua and the chorale under the direction of Sister M. Alma. People from many parts of town venture to St. Mary ' s Church to witness this reliving. There is the angelic singing of the same hymns sung by celestial choirs and above all there is the live recollection of the great gift — the gi ft God gave to us — His son, Jesus. The good Shepherds, portrayed by speech stu- dents, show that Christ was born for all nnen. 98 Students entering church to participate in ring ceremony. Rings Blessed at Mass The seniors of Nazareth and St. Joseph received their rings in a joint ceremony and Mass. After being blessed by Msgr. Popp the rings were given to the students. Joe Carruth and Mary Barrientos present the offerings to Mgsr. Popp. 99 Every year much of the festival excitement is centered around a popular booth, the " ball throw. " No festival would be complete without the doll booth as assured by these Naza rites. Armanda Cornelius adds gaiety to the excite- ment by posing as " Little Raggedy Ann. " NA Festival Provides Fun for All The annual PTA festival, as well as being the main fund raising event, affords students, young children, and adults of all ages with an evening full of fun and enjoyment. In junction with the festival booths themselves, there also is a turkey dinner held in the NA lunch room, a bingo conducted in the band room, a country store, and for the younger generation, a post-festival dance. The proceeds from this project go toward the sponsorship of the PTA breakfast, the recognition of scholarship and the promotion of better educa- tion for the students of N A. Behind the scenes of glamor there is not ail work, but a bit of humor also. After all, what ' s a festival for if it ' s not fun? 100 By the look on their faces, it appears these couples are enjoying themselves fully. Owen Thibodeaux and Libby Wearden seem to be quite happy with the entire situation at the festive Prom. Dances Boost School Spirit The Valentine Dance and Junior-Senior Prom are two annual events that are extensively planned for and eagerly anticipated the entire year. The Valentine Dance is sponsored by the NA Student Council and is one of their main fund-raising events. The Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen choose two girls to represent each class in the Valentine court, while the Senior class nominates five girls as candidates for Valentine queen. The Juniors of both St. Joseph and Nazareth Academy combine their talents and Ideas to produce a dance well worth the effort. Mary Mallcoetter and Randy Chamrad take time out at the Valentine Dance to talk with Monica Payne. Juniors, Sandy Kruppa, Mary Sue Hebner, Monica Payne, and Ce- cilia Kalinowski, work hard making streamers for their Prom. lOi Taken for granted by nnost students is the preparation the band must make before the dance can begin. Jennifer Hammack and her date don ' t seem to find it too difficult to dance in stocking feet. Post Game Dances Enjoyed by Many One of the most frequent activities attended by High School students is a post game dance. Whether it be during football season, basketball season, or any other season, there is always a big group of teen-agers at these dances. This is a show of spirit, enthusiasm, and loyalty to a team, an organization, and a school. One of the functions of this type of dance is to raise money for the Junior-Senior Prom. Another function is to give youths the opportunity to just have a great time. Margaret Bolech doesn ' t approve very readily to the cameraman in- terrupting her dancing. Taking time out from her energetic involvement at the dance to buy a coke is Kay Martin. 102 These Senior " hippies " take everyone at the pep rally for a " trip " to the familiar land of victory. Boy cheerleaders! Why not? After all, that ' s what a " mock pep rally " is for! Spirit Shown in Pep Rallies Participation in enthusiastic pep rallies is an important link in the unification of NA and St. Joe. Students yell, coaches speak, morale is boosted, and victory is assured. If there is any activity that promotes school loyalty, it ' s the many pep rallies held during the year. Robert Dodds, commentator of the " mock bonfire, " doesn ' t seem to be embarrassed about his newly donned apparel. Melita Murphy takes the time out from her saloon-girl duties to ob- serve one of the underclassmen ' s skit. A casting of caps by Nazarites to show the opposing team ' s chances for victory boosts the spirit for the Cavalier ' game. 103 March of Dimes and Youth Council It is the opinion of many people that the Youth of today is primarily concerned with the way they think the world should be and yet that they don ' t take the time to figure out a way to improve it. However in Victoria, there is an activity and an organization that proves this assumption to be untrue. The activity is the annual March of Dimes in which youths from all over the city participate and the organization is the Victoria Youth Council. These two combined demonstrate the ability of youth today to be really interested and involved in the world, the people in it and the things that are now and will forever be going on. Nancy Carter helps in the March of Dimes Drive by collecting money from the residents of Victoria. Susan Willemin gains contributions by meeting the travelers and shoppers. The many activities of the Victoria Youth Council are led by the officers: Pat Edwards, Jerry Ondrias, and Marilyn Thompson. 104 Red Cross Newly Organized at Schools Moderator, Brother Les Kaehler plans ways of initiating new projects. 1968 representatives are Mike Martin, Kevin Pardee, Dale Kalinowsici, Keith Martin, Stanley. Stryk, Jannes Bernicic, Elaine Garza, Nancy Fossati, Alexis Dick and Karen Lau. Representatives to the 1968 Youth leadership training work- shop, held in Beaumont are Albert Hunnphrey, Karan Huegele, Larry Hensley and Mary Beth Stevenson. Officers for 1968-1969 include Albert Hunnphrey, president; Larry Hensley, vice-president; Mary Beth Stevenson, sec- retary and Mary Seger, treasurer. For the first time at both Nazareth and St. Joseph ' s a high school Red Cross pro- gram has been established. The purpose of this organization is to provide high school students with the op- portunity to help other people, as well as themselves. Various activities are capable of being established by the high school Red Cross, through the city Red Cross. Such activi- ties include courses in different levels of swimming, first aid to the injured and helping out persons in refugee camps. ii Senior class officers Mary Helen DiS+efano, treas- urer; Brenda Zepeda, secretary; Donna Lyssy, vice-president; and Karan Huegele, president are the first class mennbers to welcome guests to the tea. Mrs. T. Mitchell congratulates seniors. Maxine Mayer and daughter, Joyce. lOk Seniors Host Annual Tea As a type of final farewell, the Senior class of NA annually, hosts a tea held in the convent auditoriunn. Guests to the tea include parents of the graduates, friends, relatives, teachers and any other person connected in some way with the welfare of these girls. When one enters into the gala setting he finds himself about to begin a journey on which he will come into contact with lovely girls, teachers and P.T.A. mem- bers. Congratulations are in order for the graduates and following these, re- freshments await. It ' s a festive occasion for all and the gayness of it infuses in everyone a com- pelling to remember what it is and was like to be a Senior at a tea. An annual event, the senior tea has a large turnout. Mrs. Robert Denlson is one of the first to sign the guest book. Getting ready for the tea are Patricia Krenelc, Karen Strawbridge, and Karyn Shernner. 107 Karan Huegele gladly plays the death march for doomed fresh- Satisfied, with just the deliberations made, these members of the jury fake a brief rest.

Kangaroo Court — A Tradition Lived On Janis Jurica and Patty Knowlan waste no time in fleeing from the scene of the crime. 1 J f HI 1 ■ i I BP M 1 j SAI 1 ■ il Awaiting their turn to be tried, these fish spend their last minutes in Jail. " Double, double, toll and trouble. " At freshman initia- tion the fishs ' blood bubbled. They were thrown into jail and beaten and tried. They were found guilty, of course, and then without any mercy were the victims of Senior mas- sacre. As a part of tradition the Seniors of 1969 conducted a Kangaroo Court, an initiation plan handed down to them by the Seniors of 1965. Likewise, this tradition has been handed down to this year ' s fish. It was an exciting night as all will agree , . . right, fish? Do you recognize these ghostly looking creatures? They are those Seniors com- posing the Kangaroo Court of 1969. 109 SPORTS n 1 Through the inspiration of Head Coach, Steve Tiblletti and with the assistance of John Crawford, the St. Joe Flyers came through ' 68 with a strong season.

In the rain, both teanns had a hard time keeping the ball with four turnovers apiece. The Flyers muffed four scoring op- portunities in the first quarter in the close defensive battle. Coming from the previous scoreless game, the Flyers launched an awesome ground attack that netted 309 yards and a 27-6 win over Bloomington.

Flyers Lose District Race Manuel Rossett powers an important base hit. The season of 1968-1969 is one that will long be rennenn- bered by many. Though the teann played and practiced, the dice would not roll with thenn in the victory lane. The main problem can be said was the lack of pitching ability which caused the team to rely heavily on Nick Holm. How- ever the season was enjoyable to all the players and caused the returnees to anticipate a better season. UiLSi SS l- The pitch seems to have taken a long ride at the bat of Rudy Ozuna. Team spirit is shown by Don Kruppa and Corky Saenz as they give encouragement to pitcher, Nick Holm. Pitcher, Manuel Rossett, makes a beau- tiful delivery while third baseman, Albert Humphrey, awaits it in anticipation. 139 At the Flyer bench there are looks of hope and determination. Team Possesses Keys to Winnings As all good athletes know, there are two basic qualities within a true competitor — desire and abil- ity. However, In baseball much more is required. There must be that inner feeling of team spirit and more than one ability In the sport. Unanimously it is agreed that five outstanding qualities are man- datory In a successful player, or of a successful team of players: pitching, hitting ability, .fielding performance, baserunning speed, and accurate catching. Nick Holrr. hurls a beautiful strike. 46 Adding fo the success of a Flyer game is the hope of Jimmy Rossett as he tries for a long base hit. Preparing to make a throw to second base is catcher, Leslie Pittman. « k: BERNHRRD v: 1 Albert Humphrey demonstrates how to field a ground-ball.

But in return it gives fun and enjoyment to those who play it and to those who watch it. All the girls in PE can play the game, but a team of seven girls comprise the varsity basketball team — the NA Jettes — and a B team of eleven girls. Coached by Sister M. Raphael, the Jettes Improve their game with daily practice. They play many games during the season — win a lot of them, and lose a few. But their team pride and spirit make them winners. Their representation of our school makes us winners, too!

N.A. " Jettes " Represent School Teanfiwork is the key to success. " All for one and one for all " is the chant of the Jettes after saying a prayer for the success of each game. Volleyball is another of the sports in which Nazareth Acadenny participates. Though the teann is young aad many of the players are inexperienced, it does well and is recognized as the NA team. What lies in the future is great- ness for the Jettes, which is pro- phesied by the spirit, determina- tion to win, loyalty, and unity of team members. 1 K L 1 1 ' 1 f , Linda Zepeda and Marilyn Goldman anxiously await the play to be made by Linda Hone.

Baseball is. as everyone knows, the universal sport and ping pong — well, just about everyone likes to play ping pong. The ainn of the PE girls, however, is to play these games well. They want to keep healthy and active; they want to develop co-ordination and a sense of alertness and poise throughout the game. 149 PERSONALITIES Hall of Fame SCHOLARSHIP — intelligence enough to be able to say that one has tried and has done his best. LEADERSHIP— the ability to set the pace for others, guiding them to righteousness. CHARACTER — not what one has, nor what one does, but what one is. SERVICE — being really involved with people, places, time, and things. PERSONALITY— the traits which make one dis- tinguishable from others. These are the qualities which are associated with these ten seniors, chosen by their peers and their faculty to be members of the society which de- mands these qualifications. They have learned the meaning of the above characteristics, not from a textbook, but from living them from experience. They have earned the honor and so we present to you those Nazarites who comprise the 1968-1969 HALL OF FAME. Alice PozzI, a pert and gay senior is loved by all with whom she comes In contact. Having acted as co-editor of the yearbook, she has shown her ability to handle responsibility of getting the job done.

Mary Jane Dornalc, a thoughtful and conscientious student maintains a high average in her class. Her interest in choral and her membership in TrI-M have afforded her with the opportunity of making many friends.

She ' s the type of individual who accepts a challenge vividly portrayed through participation in worthwhile organization of the Red Cross, Future Teachers, among many more.

She manages to be quick to respond in a spirited conversation and her friends know that " she ' s not the quiet person she seems to be.

They have carried this interest on into the classroom by composing their own songs. With a spirit uniquely their own, the Sophomores now look forward to the responsibilities of their Jun- ior and Senior years.

We, the editors, say a big thank you to all who helped us so much with this annual. Without the aid and encouragement of the following people, this book would not have been possible. Our parents and families — who tolerated us during this hectic time Sr. M. Borgia and Bro. Steve Travis, our advisors — who gave us strength and the will to persevere Mr. Herbert Doud, Bro. Andrew Psotka, Mr. Don Knowlan, Mary Catherine Knowlan, and Pat Hen- nessey, our photographers — who never failed us when we needed them Advertisers and patrons — who payed for the majority of these 3 12 pages The NA-STJ Faculties and student bodies — who sup- ported us in our effort And all the members of the EXCELSIOR Staff— who worked hard to present this yearbook. As always, it is not easy to express the feelings we have now at the completion of the 1969 EX- CELSIOR. Many times we didn ' t think we were able to see this publication through to the end. But with he help and encouragement of our advisors, we came through, surely with a few battle scars, but, nevertheless, surviving. We enjoyed editing this yearbook and we feel we have captured the real live spirit of the student and faculties of Nazareth Academy and St. Joseph. When you look back through the various sections in this, your book, about your year, and about your schools, we hope you can relive the events of the past school year in as vivid light as they really happened. Alice, Mary Jane, and Joe Some men see things as they are, and say why, I dream things that never were, and say why not. 310 1969 Excelsior Staff Managing Editors Copy Editors Business Editor. . . .Alice Pozzi, Mary Jane Dornak, Joe Carruth Karen Huegele, Margaret Bolech .
