The clail r October is a must in fh O VY uring the momh of ife at St. Mary's is indeed ideal forthe young man whose goal is spiritual, intellectual, and physical maturity. Each season of the year brings with it new religious exercises, new aca- demic endeavors, new social activities, and new athletic pastimes. The traditions and customs brought into being through many years grow and develop with each new graduating class, with each new Freshman class. While retaining the best of the old, youth forges on with the best of the new. Autumn is the season of introduction. New students become acquainted with old, class schedules, courses, professors, residences are changed from those ofthe previous year. The ' ' ' ' h db ll opening retreat ushers in a revitalized spirit of piety and holiness. Football, softball, an a and tennis occupy the free moments. Hikes through the country-side around the near-by lakes fill the autumn afternoons free from classes. The evenings of October are spent in Rosary devo- tions to Our Lady. Freshman initiations come to a rollicking close at the annual Halloween "Gaudeamus " a term the man of St. Mary's soon learns to use when speaking of his parties. And on the last Sunday of October the Mission Society holds its annual Mission Rally. As the ' ' ' D b' d r swiththe days trip by, the young man enioys the free day which All Saints ay rings an p ay universal Church on All Souls Day. The gray of autumn soon turns to the black and white contrasts of winter snow and death. ST.

ST. MI-kRY'S hen December rolls around with its bitter frosts, the minds and hearts of all at Orchard Lake turn chiefly to the ioyful season of Christmas. Usually a white blanket of snow provides the setting for the activities that are soon to take place. The first event of the Noel season is the annual Christmas Musicale. After the last notes have passed away, the Faculty and students break the traditional "opl'atek" and wish each other the best for the com- ing year. On the eve of the day of departure for home, many of the students sing the traditional Kolendy as they d d t in each of which is found the Nativity march across the campus visiting the residence halls of Faculty an stu en s, Scene or Ztdbek. For those members of the Faculty and students who re- main onthe campus during the ioyful season, the traditional Polish "Wigilia" is observed on Christmas Eve. At midnight all go to the campus chapel to attend the "Pasterka" otherwise known as Midnight Mass. After the Christmas and Epiphany seasons are over, preparations are made for the Pre-Lenten Party.
