Senior Class Histor
Wide-eyed with the wonder of being the
first Freshman Class at the San Diego College
for Women, fifteen of the present graduating
class began their four-year history of "being
first." We were the first students on the Alcala
Park campus to be received by Reverend
Mother Rosalie Hill, founder and builder of
the San Diego College for Women, to assist
at a Mass of the Holy Ghost and to be invested
with cap and gown. We were the first - and
last - to entertain the British Navy at a supper
dancel When Reverend Mother Hill returned
from Rome, we even exercised tri-location -
we were at the station to meet her, we were at
the front door to greet her, and we used the
theatre for the first time to receive herl!!
Another "first" to our credit was our "Fresh-
man Folliesf' Encouraged by that success,
we presented a unique Cand fortunately, pri-
vatel interpretation of THE MIKADO. But
our production of the first annual Christmas
Pageant entitled "Christmas in Many Landsi'
was just as fortunately public, if we may judge
from audience response. Our caroling was
also begun that year, but on a small scale,
already conscious of the Sacred Heart "fam-
ily" tradition, we carolled the community by
candlelight one evening and next morning
began the tradition of a surprise cap and gown
Mass by way of saying "thank youi' to our
president, Margaret Fahlstrom, Marie Mathew

Ianuary 30, 1953 marked a "One-Year-
Old Party" for the college, and shortly after
that we elected our Hrst student-body otlicers.
As a student-body we instituted F riday-night
mixers, but then gave them up for Lent and
for always, since by that time the academic
aspect of college life had asserted itself. We,
the freshmen, did entertain the upperclass-
men, however, at a Valentine dance, and they
reciprocated on St. Patricks day. A spring for-
mal in May and Presidenifs Day with games
and a picnic on the athletic courts brought
this first tradition-making year to a memor-
able close. We went home bursting with our
importance as "Foundation Stonesv.

more thoughtful and prayerful by the loss of

year as sophomores, determined to
solidify Sacred Heart traditions V
in the college and to extend ,
them warmly to the "Little

freshmen. Together we I

over the years in a "Senior Swan Song." On

"College at last!" was our thought as we
wandered around in a maze of classrooms
and laboratories in 1953. But, with the help
of our counselor, Mother Frances Danz, We
managed to amuse the upper-classmen with
the portraits we painted of their future antics
in our FRESHMEN FOLLIES. Class officers
that year were Valmere Dessert, Lidia Fon-
cerrada, and Carol Farrell.
Our sophomore year, under the guidance
of Mother Susan Campbell and officers -
Virginia Rodee, Carol Farrell, and Ioan Young
- Was filled with memorable activities from
dinner aboard Admiral Rodee's U.S.S. Prince-
ton to the unforgettable thrill of the BAL DES
FLEURS in May. We were saddened by the
loss of Rosa Maria Molina that summer, but
Colombian shores beckoned her. Charming to
the end, she bid us all good-bye at a farewell
tea at the La Iolla Beach and Tennis Club.
Ioan Young, Ioann Wigchert, Lidia Foncer-
rada, Ioan Beretich, Gail Henderson, Eliza-
beth Vopateck, Dale Tallman, and Noelle
Onorato left us to be married, but they have
kept their promise to keep in touch by corre-
spondence. Those of us who are determined
to "earn a B.A. or B.S. iirstv gathered at Evelyn
Teachout's Chula Vista home for a reunion
breakfast on graduation day in june.
Marion Rogers, Marian Hale,

With our newly acquired upperclass status,
we launched our good ship S,S. junior in
grand style with Carol Farrell, Patricia Keane,
and Evelyn Teachout at the helm. The Har-
vest Dance gave us our first opportunity to
prove that we were seaworthy, and we passed
with flying colors. Midterms, Christmas par-
ties, and finals flew by with unbelievable
speed. Helping "little sistersf' retreat, another
registration, Easter, and the ever-present
work on the yearbook kept us so occupied
that summer was suddenly upon us with a
fashion-show luncheon, farewell parties, and
all the promise of our SENIOR YEAR . . .

Sophomore Class History
As the Sophomores stand midway in their
ascent up the ladder of college life, they
glance back at a history full of class activities
and enthusiastic participation in school aifairs.
Following the election of permanent offi-
cers in December, 1954, freshman-class life
began at the San Diego College for Women.
Guided by their counselor, Mother Sally
Furay, and oiiicers-Virginia Bausch, Patricia
lean Featherstone, Ann Dyer, Mary
Lee Wible, Virginia Bausch, president,
Gonzales, Ann Dyer, and Adrienne Kuhe -
class members made plans for daily advance-
ment in spiritual, intellectual, and social
A swimming and supper party, given janu-
ary 9 by Arlene Glenn at her home in National
City, united the class of '58 in its Hrst off-
campus activity. February found freshmen
roasting weiners at Presidio Park, and making
plans for their first dance, "The Playis the
Thingf, February 19. El Monte was the scene
of the March picnic for freshmen and their
dates. Georgia King entertained the class at
a buffet luncheon in the garden of her La
Jolla home during April.
Concluding the excitement of final examin-
ations, the spring prom, and commencement
exercises, the class of '58 gathered at Hotel
del Charro in La Jolla for its class brunch,
May 29. With its initiation of a summer news-
letter, the class began a new tradition for
freshmen at S.D.C.W.
Returning to college as sophomores in Sep-
tember, 1955, class members devoted all their
leisure time to helping "Little Sistersf, First
on the calendar of events was a "Swim with
the Sophomoresi' party at the Town and
Country Club in Mission Valley. A few weeks
later, the Freshman Class was asked to roller
skate with the sophomores at Palisades Roller

was the first to make these dreams come true.
The weekend following the annual retreat,
she invited all her classmates for two days of
snow-iilled fun at Crestline in the San Bernar-

were then focused on Sophomore Serenades
and the BAL DES FLEUBS, the annual
events which the Sophornores sponsor as a
final tribute to the graduating class.

The Speakers, Bureau
The Speaker's Bureau was initiated March
29, 1954. It is a Christopher movement center-
ing on the Apostleship of Speech. Its purpose
is to provide its members with the opportunity
to express themselves, to exchange ideas, to
develop poise in speech, and to practice lead-
ership on and off campus.
There were fourteen Charter Members:
Margaret Fahlstrom, Mary Jimenez, Ruth
Jimenez, Jacqueline Kearns, Elayne Langen-
ieux, Leann Mahoney, Carol Reilly, Virginia
Rodee, Paula Sabin, Mary Scott, Marilynn
Mayer, Jean Rubel, Mary Cardoza, and Carol
Farrell. In November, 1954, Mary Scott was
elected chairman and Ruth Jimenez secretary.
In the fall it has organized Student Con-
gresses for the college students and the four
hundred juniors and seniors of the Catholic
high schools. The iirst was the Marian Con-
gress of 1954, the second the Congress on the
Mass in 1955. In both cases the members of
the Bureau Wrote and delivered the papers.
In the spring semester the Speakers, Bureau
plans and solicits the cooperation of the stu-
dent body for the Public Relations program of
sending speakers to the private and public
high schools of the area.

Based on nthe principle that all authority is
derived from Cod and rests with His repre-
sentatives and with those to whom any share
of His governing power is delegatedf, a con-
stitution was drawn up, in the summer of
1954, providing for a cooperative form of
government to be administered by faculty
and students working together.
Prior to this time the student body had been
governed by Kathleen McConigle as presi-
dent C1952-1953 and 1953-1954D , Mary Bing-
geli as vice-president C1952-1953 and 1953-
1954j, Constance Iimenez as social chairman
and Ioan Hall as secretary. In September
1954, Kathleen Brophy was elected social
chairman and Ianet Contant as secretary.
According to the new constitution the
elections of 1954-1955 called for student-body
officers who would also head standing com-
rnittees in the college. These ofHcers, class
presidents, and special delegates from the
classes compose the student council. Student
Body officers for 1954-1955 were: Jacqueline
Kearns, Kathleen Brophy, Mary Turner
Leann Mahoney, and Lillian Jimenez
The function of the Student Council is to
foster understanding and cooperation be
tween Faculty and Student Body by repre
senting the views of the Student Body to the
Administration. This representation is made
to the President of the College, Mother Cath
erine Parks Moderator of the Council
The aim of the Student Council is to up
hold the college motto "THAT ALL MAY
BE ONE,,' and in so doing foster the "family
tradition, which is the heritage of all colleges
of the Sacred Heart

Inaugurated for gracious greetings, the
Hostess Committee aims at entertaining visi-
tors at the college in order that their stay may
be enjoyed and remembered. Meeting on the
average of once a month, the group discusses
appropriate plans for expected guests. Col-
lege or senior high school visitors tour the
campus and engage in current college activi-
ties. Highlighting their visit, the Hostess
Committe sponsors a dance, tea, or tour of
San Diego in honor of the guests. For events
such as major drama productions, or special
programs, members of the Committee act as
otlicial hostesses for the college.
This committee was established by the
Constitution of the Associated Student Body
under the chairmanship of the Student Body
President for the purpose of caring for the
interest of individual students, students in
general, and the college as a whole. Such a
task involves the preservation of high stand-
ards of Christian conduct, dress, and order.
The wise and loving over-all guidance of
Reverend Mother Rosalie Hill and the ofter
repeated conviction of San Diego,s beloved
Bishop has been the constant inspiration of
the organization - "We have a great work to
do, and we cannot come downfv
The membership of the committee consists
of its chairman and as many semesterly proc-
tors as there are campus-areas to be proc-
tored. These proctors are chosen by the chair-
man in consultation with the faculty moder-
ator, and they are drawn from all four classes.
Responsibilities are shared by resident and
day students. Weekly proctors are appointed
by the semesterly proctors.
Members of the committee for 1954-55
were: Chairman, Jacqueline Kearns, semes-
terly proctors, Joan Erickson, Candace Hos-
mer, Evelyn Teachout, Beverly O'Connorg
Moderator, Mother Campbell.
Members of the committee for 1955-56
include: Chairman, Jacqueline Kearns, se-
mesterly proctors, Donna Kopp, Gail Derry,
Arlene Glenn, Barbara Heney, Sandra Jelinek,
Georgia King, Patricia McNair, Rosalie Park-
man, Mary Lou Spalding, Betty Bell, and
Beverle Bell, Moderator, Mother Campbell.
Meetings of the committee are held once a
Week, and an annual g'Mad-Hattersv party is
sponsored shortly after Easter by way of
thanking the student body for its cooperation
and of allowing them a momentary respite
from "appropriate campus attiref'

The lighter aspect of college life is provided
for by this committee. The vice president
of each class under the chairmanship of the
vice president of the student body begin
making 'Ksocialv plans long before the opening
of college in September. Nearly all the sum-
mer months are devoted to the Campus Fash-
ion show, which highlights "Freshman Weekf,
During that first week of school other nights
to remember on the social calendar are that
of the Big-Little Sister Dinner for the resi-
dents and the COTTON COTILLION for all

The big annual events established by this
committee during the last four years are the
Harvest Dance, sponsored by the Juniors, the
Christmas Ball, sponsored by the Seniors, the
Mardi Gras dance sponsored by the Fresh-
men, the Bal des Fleurs, sponsored by sopho-
mores. Frequent informals, a faculty-student
Christmas party, even square-dances End
their place in the crowded days and nights of
college students on the Alcala Park campus.
And the moderator of the committee, Mother
Danz, prophesies that the future holds yet
larger and better parties.

The Alcala Park Players
The show must go on! Three weeks after
the theatre was completed in November 1952,
a drama club was organizedg under the lead-
ership of Mary Turner, and the first annual
Christmas Pageant produced by Mother
Furay under the title of "Pageant of the
In September 1953 this club with Mother
Campbell as moderator drew up a constitu-
tion which states that the purpose of the
organization is to altord students an oppor-
put the theory of drama into practice
develop a love of good theatre
enrich the knowledge of history and liter-
ature learned in academic courses.
December of ,53 brought the second annual
Christmas pageant entitled "Christmas in
Merry Old England," and in the spring the
drama club was baptized "The Alcala Park
Players" on the occasion of its first major pro-
duction - Maxwell Anderson's "Mary of Scot-
landf' directed by Lucille Downs Devereaux.
Starring in this production were Marilynn
Mayer and Diane Sinclair, who were double
cast in the role of Mary Stuart, Kathleen
Brophy and Paula Sabin, in the role of Queen
Elizabeth. Rebecca Radford was a Botliwell
equal to both Marys
In the fall of 1954 Evelyn Krail was
elected president of the club, Marie Mathew,
vice president, Arlene Raymond, secretary. It
was their immediate privilege to launch,
under the guidance of Mother Furay, a fall
production to climax Marian Year activities.
The dramatization of Franz Werfel's i'Song
of Bernadettev was chosen, with Paula Sabin
playing the title role. And this year's Christ-
mas pageant was called "A Mary Christmas"
in honor of the closing of the Marian Year.
By spring students were hungry for more
theatre. Consequently, another drama -"Let-
ters to Lucerne" was produced in April with
major roles played by Arline Raymond, Bev-
erly O'Connor, Tanya Finlayson, Barbara
Vidal, Dorothy Wawrzynski, Diane Sinclair,
and Kathleen Wellstein.
September '55 saw Evelyn Krail re-elected
president of the club with Suzanne Tilley as
vice president and Trudy Crampton as secre-
tary. "American Christmasi' was the theme of
the fourth annual Christmas pageant. And,
not to be outdone by Shakespeare revivals in
London and on Broadway, the Players chose
"Midsummer Night's Dreamy as the spring
production for 1956. Mr. R. B. Van Vleck,
Professor of Speech at the San Diego College
for Men, was invited to direct the play. The
immortal roles of Bottom and Puck were
played by Sandra jelinek and Patricia Crowe,
while Titania and Oberon were impersonated
by Margo Lester and Sharon Smith.

Mary Cordoza C561 , vice president, Ann
Phillips 1,57 D , secretary-treasurer. Three trips
- to Bird Bock, Scripps' Institute of Ocean-
ography, and Palomar - furnished numerous
specimens for the science department, which
the students themselves classified and placed
on exhibition. At one of the regular meetings
ofthe club, Dr. john L. Feldman, M.D., spoke
on the ear and its disorders. At another meet-
ing Dr. McNeally, biochemist of Kelco Com-
pany, showed colored movies of deep sea life
and lectured on kelp and its chemical proper-
ties. The marine biology field trips were under

event of the year was the gift of a mineral
collection from Kathleen McGonigle C,54Q.
This collection was prepared by an engineer
in her father's manganese mine. In the sum-
mer of 1954, Work and play were fused, when
Mr. H. L. Benbough took Science Club mem-
bers to the Coronado Islands on his yacht.
In 1954-55 Margaret Fahlstrom, Beth Ann

,56, headed the Science Club. Striving to im-
prove their exhibitions, club members made
several field trips to Bird Rock Q under the
guidance of Dr. Colon Hough, marine bio-
chemistj, Borrego Desert, Dana Landing,
and Scripps. The freshmen, under the leader-
ship of Sharon Smith C58 J , presented "Scien-
tific Conferencesf, Two lectures on astronomy
- one by Donna Kopp C585 and another by
the astronomer Rudolph Lippert, centered on
the Held trip to Palomar. In April and May,
Dr. Anita Figueredo, M.D., under the aus-
pices of the club, addressed the student body
in a series of three lectures on cancer.
In 1955-56 Margaret Fahlstrom, Beth Ann
Smith, and Carol Riddell retained club oiiices.
Donna Kopp was electedas junior and Ann
