Silver Anniversary Greased back hair, penny loafers, and sock hops were typical of the 500 male students at St. Joseph ' s High School when it was first opened in 1952. Twenty-five years later the 1,000 co-eds ' feather ' their hair, wear gauchos and Frye boots and bump and boogie at school dances. These students of 1979 laugh as they watch nostalgic television shows starring ' The Fonz ' or La- verne and Shirley. When television was first introduced and there was only one T.V. set per block, neighbors gathered to watch Lucy Ricardo give birth to Little Ricky or to see Milton Berle dress as a woman. Now the typical home has two or three T.V. sets to enjoy watching college football, ' The Love Boat ' , or perhaps one of the 16 day- time soap operas. The average teenager in ' 53 bought 45 r.p.m. records and hoped to use the family Chevy or Studebaker to go on a date. Today, 45 per cent of St. Joe students work part-time, 60 per cent buy twelve or more albums a year, and 25 per cent own their own cars. The strict dress code of black pants, white shirts, and a dark tie disap- peared only 10 years ago. Now one sees a variety in dress, ranging from Levi ' s to sundresses. The faculty has shifted from a 75 per cent combina- tion of priests, nuns, and brothers to 75 per cent lay teachers. Curriculum changes such as the elimination of Latin or the addition of art and busi- ness courses, have frequently oc- curred. In 1952, everyone was scheduled for a 7-hour day. Today, with modular scheduling, a senior may get out at noon. The Silver Anniversary of St. Joe gives students a chance to see how St. Joe has progressed since its be- ginning. Take a look at how far we ' ve come. BSI IH ■■■ BSI II llilllll II [mmTh Silver Anniversary 5
