His hurried, un- certain step echoes down darkened byways and mingles with millions of slower, more determined steps on neon-lighted main streets, his step is heard again on every familiar avenue in every city, and then it stops in the home, in the classroom. He looks to his parents, to his educators for the answer to his quest. Sometimes he finds it, but too often he is filled with fear because even those who have lived in this world so much longer than he, have no reason for living, no answer to death. The Youth begins to run-but the sons of the Serpent overtake him, with tramping, destructive steps that march over Beauty, with superficial, precise steps that lead toward false beauty, with aimless, careless steps that avoid Beauty. But today the Youth may stop again in his search down labyrinthine ways, to find the answer from one who knows peace in his heart, Pope Pius XII. His Marian Year is the hope of today's youth and the America of tomorrow. A heel has crushed the Serpent's head and there is enmity between Her seed and his seed. Because She is the Answer and her Seed is Beauty. Only with her can youth hope to be victorious over war, vanity, and indifference. She it was who prepared for Christ. She it was who bore Him for the world. She it was who gave Him to suffer and to die that Divine Life and happiness might come to mankind. Now in her, who is "the joy, the honor, and the glory of our people" we shall prepare for Christ's coming, we shall bear Him for the world, and as He lives in us-so shall we the Youth of America, suffer and die in Him, that we may be truly happy and find joy in this world partially and in the next world eternally. 3 wfw ,hm X35 N , Ad LML, V: A g l DEDICATION Today we dedicate this annual to you, Mary. Unlike so many teenagers in this land of ours, we have known you for many years. But more especially in this last year, this Marian Year, you have become to us a human being, living, breathing-the majestic, glorious Queen of Angels, yet the sweetest Mother man will ever know and cherish as his own. We have you daily, per- sonified in the Ursuline nuns who teach us and they have told us your life- as ordinary and commonplace as our own-yet the loveliest life ever lived by woman. To us, dearest Mary you are the Dawn of Yesterday, of Today, and of Tomorrow. Yesterday . . . our past year at Ursuline, Today . . . the present day in which we pause to look upon our life at Ursuline, Tomorrow . . . the future years waiting before us, years pregnant with potentiality. The dawn of each new day is expectant, the air is pure, the earth is soundless, silenced, waiting for the sun to take its place. So were you, before the Annun- ciation, Mary-virginal pure, soundless, waiting for the Sun, Christ to take His place in you. The dawn is the birth of day. Dawn comes, as it were, direct from the hand of God. Mary, you are always the Dawn, just as you came forth from the hand of God at birth, free from attachments, free from taint of self-love in any' form, free from all blemish. We go back with you now, dear Mother, to the dawn of Yesterday. Time goes so fast. Yesterday is gone, the light and darkness of it. Today is here. And yet the past, the words and friendship and love of it, still lives in our hearts and is recorded on these pages . . . 5 CONTENTS Mary made a complete offering of herself to God. She offered all that she was that Christ might enter her, take possession of her. Thus did we offer ourselves to God in the first Mass of the Marian Year during the early hours of our Yesterday at Ursuline.

WV 1 , 1 if--'f' THE RADIANCE OF MORNING Christ is formed within us . As the sun takes the place of the dawn, so did Christ take the place of Mary on the earth when the seed within her became the Word Incarnate at the Annunciation. So we are like the Woman with Child: through religion and guidance periods, through the growth of wisdom and thereby love, as fostered by Mary's Sodality and special activities, there is for us an absorption into a deeper life within . . . a folding of self "like a little tent around the Child's frailty' '... a God-like instinct to cherish and truly to bring forth Christ in our lives. When we pray, it is with His love, when we think, with His wis- dom, when we act, with His mercy. Christ-His love, His wisdom, His mercy-can actively exist in the world if we can completely form Him within our souls and let Him be born again through us. Christ, then, is dependent on the members of His Mystical Body. just as the Son of God asked Mary for His flesh and blood, His humanity-so does the Christ Who lives in the tabernacle today ask for hands to touch the eyes of those who are blind, a voice to reach the ears of those whose minds are closed, and a human intellect to understand and offer consolation to those who long for the friendship of God. It is necessary that we give ourselves to His formation, to pray without ceasing, the prayer being a growing HWRICHCSS of C0l'1St3.Hf PIICSCDCC. - I So we have offered to God the Father our lives for this day and all the days follow- ing. But the offering must be the sacrifice of human beings who are full of wonder and innocence and new-found strength, who are intensely alive, the contented, happy ones to whom sorrow comes only at the friend's grief, who are bound to accomplish far- flung dreams, and shall, because they earnestly strive for wisdomg who are inflamed with fierce ambition to lead and yet to serve, the ambition to make an eternal success of their lives.

THE STORY OF THE DREAMER As seniors we began the final steps of our preparation for the future. The very word "future" held a certain fascination for us. But the most cherished part of this prepara- tion was the guidance and counsel of Mother Dolores Marie, who will always reign in our memories. The first event of the year was the Freshman Reception into the student body. We, the eldest daughters, formally accepted the freshmen into the Ursuline family. As we lighted the candles of these beginners, we hoped to pass on to them the spirit of loyalty, courtesy, and the courage which we, as freshmen, had received as a quivering flame and which, through the years, had grown steadily into a strong, sturdy fire. Temporarily putting aside the formality and solemnity of traditional Ursuline cere- monies, we began work on our major dramatic production, the senior play. We chose Shuberl Alley for our play. Memorizing lines, hours of rehearsing, and the able direction of Mrs. jean Henry, all these went together to make our play the success that it was. We were very happy when we realized that our production had actually set a precedent for future Ursuline plays. What better time could have been chosen for our retreat than the last three days before the Christmas holidays. The very word retreat cast a peaceful spell over us for it meant three days alone with God, three days to prepare for Christ's coming on Christmas morng three days in which to ask Him to prepare us for the future. Ring Ceremony was for us a joyous, solemn, and yet sad occasion. It was joyful be- cause at long last we were receiving the insignia of Ursuline standards, solemn because we realized the responsibilities that were ours in accepting the ring, and sad because it was another step toward the day we would be leaving Ursuline. The festive season of spring brought with it May Day. This year our May Day was gayer than ever. The beautiful colors, the singing, the dancing, and the crowning of our own queen, Mitzi Furtula, meant even more to us for we realized that this would be our last May Day. Flowing white dresses, picture hats, bouquets of red roses, and the speeches of vale- dictorian and salutatorian call to mind the day which we will ever cherish most of all, Class Day. However, this day meant more than wearing white dresses and carrying red roses. It was an opportunity to express our gratitude to the members of the faculty and to our parents for giving us the education which will mean our lives-our eternal lives. Then there was Graduation . . . the culmina- tion of our high school time of study, of work, of effort. This event brought to a close our days at Ursuline, and yet we knew that we were not leaving Ursuline completely, for a part of it would live with us always in our spirit, in our attitudes, and in our capacity for love.

K ,kg fum FSH x iw THE STORY OF THE PLANNER "How does it feel to be an upperclassman?" Finally we are qualified to answer this question. The weight of responsibility grows with each passing day and Seniordom looms ahead. The future has become less obscure, closer to reality. We realize finally that what we learn now will shape our lives. Education has become to us the means to a goal--not just a burden. To one person in particular we owe the wisdom of our junior year, to Mother Sebastian, our sponsor. Of course, retreat and Father Hein helped us to see beyond our noses, too! After retreat we arranged for a separate day of recollection. It was partly through this means that we determined to help put Christ back into Christmas by the sale of religious Christmas cards. Hard work has played a tremendous part in our growth. The huge map we made for Fall Frolics was no easy task. Our scene in this amateur hour for the parents was the South. Magnolias and banjos flourished in our song-filled production. Gay streamers and balloons formed a County Fair atmosphere for the junior October dance. Dreamy music overcame the typically drizzly skies of the fall season to lend success to our first class dance. Q Cars were packed with eager children on the day of the Christ Child party. Talking to these small ones of Christ, as we brought them to their first real Birthday Party, gave us added incentive in our Mission Day activities. Our poet, Carol Campbell, wrote a soliloquy by Our Lady for the Marian Program. Our theme was The Blersed Mariner in the Modem World. As we worked on the pro, gram, we felt the irresistible force of her personality pulling us ever nearer to her side. How Mother Sebastian and we worked on the Prom! Green angel hair in our eyes, silver glitter in our hair, hammers on our thumbs-these things we shall remember and laugh, and the night and the music and the people with whom we shared all these things we shall never forget. Only "Fantasia" can describe the world of make-believe that came true those few moments on February twenty-seventh. On the festive May Day the queen was crowned, and we congratulated our Maid of Honor. True to tradition, it was a grand spectacle, thrilling and ever-new. The year was floating by, so swiftly and yet so happily that we did not know that it was almost gone until-the Senior Breakfast on Class Day, which the juniors always give at the end of the school year, made us realize that it would not be long until we ourselves were seniors! Understanding has come through the guidance of our sponsor and hard work. We know now that the world is not always what it seems to be. But we look to Christ and believe that He is Tmth, constant and unchanging. . 48 Theresa Callahan, Ann Weaver, joellen Timm, Colleen Malone JUNIOR OFFICERS Preiident ................................................

We found that we had lost a few of our members, but we set out for a wonderful year with our enthusiastic sponsor, Mother Adelaide. We knew that one of the most important qualities of any school is the pervading friendliness which exists. Therefore, Friendship Week at Ursuline was our first big project. Campaign slogans, bright posters, P.A. announcements-all were used to make each student remember the worth of a smile. But awareness of the reason behind it came in our guidance periods with our Ursuline mother. Brisk fall days brought a barbecue down by the creek, given for our big sisters, the seniors. A treasure hunt sent everyone flying over the acres-through woods, across the lawn and over the bridges. The next month brought Sophomore-Junior retreat which affected all of us and prompted us to make serious resolutions regarding our spiritual "face-lifts." Rev. John Hein, SJ. was voted by all of us, the retreat master, par excellence. Skis were our transportation when we headed for the Paul Bunyan Inn during the first Fall Frolics presentation. In song we described the sparkling glories of winter and in original verse we chanted the legend of Paul Bunyan. After the senior play, we gave our big sisters a party in the ballroom. W'e prepared the food ourselves and a candle-light buffet supper was arranged in colors of blue and white, our big sisters' class colors. We gave a festive air to the cafeteria when we did our share for the Christ Child party. It was our delight to serve sandwiches, hot chocolate, fruit, and baskets of candy to our little friends from West Dallas. Amid New Year's resolutions and mid-term examinations we started our second semester. Our contribution to the Marian Year was a program on Mfiry in Ari. We chose to tell of famous masterpieces of the different countriesg this explanation was supple- mented by prayers and hymns of the distinctive countries. Unexpected creative talents were pooled in our efforts to furnish some beautiful articles for our novelty booth on Mission Night. Painted luncheon sets, artistic jewelry, stuffed animals, and all sorts of attractive articles were created by us. Mock Graduation was magnificent. How fortunate we were to have Mother Adelaide help us for she had been the sponsor of the seniors for three years and therefore had accumulated so much helpful information. We ended our sophomore year with one last party for the seniors who would soon be leaving Ursuline. Eagerly though, we were looking forward to next year when we would be called "upperclassmen." Even though our eyes were turned toward the sky, we had learned under Mother Adelaide's careful guidance to walk with sureness and confidence on the earth. 56 5. 3 A S4 9 X X S Qgm iiswf sk E"'?"' 149,35 4 K .

At first it was an exciting world, but the excitement soon wore off and we found ourselves in a scheduled routine. Entrance into Ursuline called for our command performance talent show. We had as much fun performing as the seniors did commanding. From the first moment we opened the door to Ursuline, we were welcomed with smiles on all sides. We began to feel at home when we were entertained with a delicious box supper by our big sisters, the juniors. Our welcome was climaxed by the beautiful, formal Freshman Reception in which the seniors solemnly accepted us into the student body. Then came probably the most important event in our supernatural lives, our first retreat. This "vacation with God" made us ponder the mysteries of our religion and wonder at the promise of God's plan for us. From this time on, we have made a very special place for God in our hearts. Soon the winning of the annual drive for the Acres and the presenting of our first stage show in the Fall Frolics showed the pep, spirit and courage which our sponsors, Mother Margaret Mary and Mother Melanie, had been telling us that we had all year! Our part in the cheerful Christmas Program and the yearly Christ Child party' for the poor children filled us with the true realization of Christmas. Under the guidance of our sponsors, we planned and directed the games for our guests. A frosty new year found us carefully planning the Senior Breakfast, which we gave for the seniors on the morning of their Ring Ceremony after the Mass of Saint Angela said for them by Father Groeneger. Then on Mission Day, we were very proud of the great success of our Cake-Walk for bringing in so many mission dollars. A discussion on the racial discrimination existent in the United States today, ter- minated in our inviting a Negro speaker to the school to talk to us about constructive measures that could be taken to rid our nation of this horrible vice. Eastertide found us entertaining our big sisters with an'Easter Egg Hunt. And we re- called with grateful hearts fand "older" mindsj the friendly welcome we had received last year from the sophomores as we met and talked with next year's freshmen after their entrance examinations. Reviewing our first year at Ursuline, we are extremely grateful to Mother Margaret Mary and Mother Melanie for their patient and indispensable guidance of our class of sixty-three freshmen. We won't forget Mother Margaret Mary's saying, "I don't want a class asleep on their feet! I want my girls to be alive!" And how many times has Mother Melanie said, "You're the biggest class yetg you ought to be the best!" 64 1. 2 Q , X K w,.,.MNsM -w:M.,,m.rm 'mF'fs3.m. NY. H, 1 --QM f---Wi ' Luyixw.

V ' X The year of 1953-54 was dedicated in a special way to Mary by His Holiness Pope Pius Xllg thus it is called the Marian Year. This year was opened in Rome on the feast of the Immaculate Conception. Likewise, at Ursuline, the Marian Year opened with a beautiful ceremony in the afternoon. A Guard of Honor placed a flower acrostic on the Blessed Mother's altar and the prefect of the sodality placed beside the flowers the resolution of each student for the ' Marian Year. Father Groeneger urged all in his sermon to study and imitate Mary. The rosary was recited and the ceremony closed with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Another project of the Marian Year was that of the Marian Assembly to be given on the eighth of each month.

Hein helped the seniors to realize the purpose of manys existence- eternal life. During those reverential days of silence and meditation which were blessed by the intelligent devotedness of Father Hein, we came to know God as the Eternal and Divine Lover of man. The freshman retreat was conducted by Reverend james W. Courtney SJ. of St. Charles College, Grand Coteau, Louisi- ana. With the encouragement and spiritual strength gained through the retreat exercises, we felt ready to face life l bravely. l s Two seniors, Doris Ann Brett and Carolyn Keller, say their Spiritual reading plays an important part in the rosary out of doors where Gods beauty is reflected in dailY routine of these retreatants, Arm ZUIUS and Natura 75 Rhea Crane.

It is nearing the Birthday of Christ. Advent, the prepara- tion for Christ's coming, is taking place in each of our souls. So gladly do we give to these little ones, who rep- resent the Son of God. They are the Christs and we the Wise Men, bearing gifts. But the Wise Men did not accidentally stumble upon Christ in the manger. They had to plan a route to follow, find precious gifts and pack provisions. We began our preparation with the drawing of the chi1dren's names. Then the Freshmen were put in charge of the games, and to the Sophomores fell the task of decorating the cafeteria and securing the food, the juniors were to bring the children to the party, and the Seniors to decorate the rotunda where the children would receive their presents.

The dawn has now withdrawn. The sun slowly progresses across the cloudless azure skies and lo! it rests in its noon day glory. It shines upon everything, gives color and meaning to everything, heals and gives life, light and heat, the warmth that goes down deep to the root of the tree and discovers the tiniest seedling in the darkness and feeds it and draws it up unto the day. Behold, such is seen in the life of Christ. He was hidden beneath His mother's heart, in her spotless, pure womb. And lol the Word was made flesh, and He dwelt amongst us in silent glory offering to us eternal life and grace-the light which illumines the soul and gives it that inextinguishable spark of Divine love. And He it is Who is the fire of Love-the warmth of which goes down deep to the depths of our souls and discovers the tiniest seedling of light, nourishes it with grace and draws it to Himself. Then as we are drawn to Him, we become a part of Him-truly His hands and voice on this earth. It is the Word that is made flesh, the God of wisdom, mercy and love--of Life itself. So where that Person is at home in the human creature, and Christ, born of his life, is manifest, there must be a grace of living which touches every detail of life. His mind must be quickenedg he must see the world in wonder and reverence, he must be con- scious that privations, pain and weariness of the mind and body are prayer, but that so, too, are the pleasure and labors of his daily routine. This, then, is the aim of our Ursuline faculty-to teach the students how to live. Not only are we taught how to live the supernatural life, the life of grace, but also we are taught how to live the other life, the natural life of body and soul. In the Ursuline system of education there is a certain plan for our spiritual and physical education, for since Christ abides in each of us there must be that grace of living which touches every detail of life. The nuns and the lay teachers endeavor to fulfill this plan in our daily courses dealing directly with our intellect and will. Thus is the soul trained, as is the body in physical education courses. But existing in each course and activity is a way of life-we think and act with Christ. In everything we do, the Wford is made flesh, and if we will, we can behold in each- other His glory, Who is dwelling among us. 8I Every day the student hody president, joan Wcvrks, gives the daily announcements and activities over the puhlic address system. , with thc r. bcmkwvusy by fresh- pw plastit IIC gold A rc Rul lliltltlfxlrlialdcmls kind moulenll wuncll-l Nleilnsnn schools 5 . - if we SNK- ldlnfl ag mam mernlgggxia Han, mera Muilillla Vfwsallw' ani THE STUDENTS The Student Council began the school year with the installation of officers.

Her gentleness, warmth, and fun-loving kindness are felt throughout the school. In her teaching she stresses the many ways that chemistry affects the lives of the students. Through- out her classes Mrs. Cavin allows chemistry to open the door to many other fields through which one can enlarge the scope of knowledge and application. She believes that sciences offer and teach a logical method of thinking and reasoning as facts establish other facts. REACTIONS A D ,yr .

Mother teaches two civics classes, American History, and Sociology. Besides teaching, Mother is the mod- erator of the Student Council and sponsor of the Home Economics Club. Several guest speakers and demonstrators were in- vited to the meetings of the Home Economics club. The girls learned the importance and the fun in planning and caring for a home. In sociology class, propaganda booklets with orig- inal themes were the results of a very worthwhile project. In this class students are encouraged to carry with them the Christian principles which will be .1 means of changing the world. Under Mother's direction as Mission Moderator for Ursuline Academy, plans took shape. A Mexican dinner and carnival brought a profit of 353725 for Ursuline missionaries.

She has made a great contribution to the school as .1 lfrenth and latin teacher. She believes that since more than halt' ot' our linglish words tame from the Latin through the lfrench, many students im- prove their spelling, increase their vocabulary and understand better what they read in lfnglish because of these studies. Those who carry these studies to a higher level have the interesting experience of contacting great cultures different from their own. ln her classes Miss Boyer tries to show students how to im' prove their ways of study and their methods of taking tests, by speaking of the methods that are recognized as best by authori- ties who are trained and experienced in helping students in such work. .I -J A few members of the freshman Latin Class have a vocabulary refresher. P. Rodrigues, M. Quick, bl. Schwartz. P. Grady, A. Lamberty. and M. Miller. GUAGES . . . Mother Berchmans is our Latin and Spanish teacher. She has a unique method of teaching by which she makes use of the students sense appeal. If you ask anyone who has ever been in ,mam her class what it was like, she would answer, "There was never a dull moment." Mother Berchmans always keeps her classes in- teresting. A special day like Lincoln's or Wasl1ington's birthday never passes without some type of Latin or Spanish program ap- propriate for the occasion. Mother Berchmans commands the march of the Sophomores legions through the Alps, and she is also in charge of the Juniors and Seniors Ciceronic senate. The gay "senoritas" learn their "muy bien's" under her capable di- 5 l rection. To Mother Berchmans is given the credit for the Cicero l Latin Assembly which really proved to the entire student body , her favorite motto, i'L:IfjlIrl Viz'if." i Mother Berchmans' unusual imagination is dem- onstrated here as she prepares another interesting Latin bulletin board. , R g 5 Memento Htiiii SUIA PULVIS ES tl i Near a classroom shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, M.

Mother Sebastian is in charge of algebra and geometry classes while Miss Youmans sponsors the art club and art appreciation classes, Although it may seem strange to link algebra and geometry with art, they are very closely connected with one another. Miss Youmans is an artist because she is able to take different types and shades of colors and with the aid of a brush and her skillful imagination blend them together to form a beautiful pattern on .1 blank canvas. Mother Sebastian is an artist too for she is able to take insignificant numbers and strange figures and with the aid of a piece of chalk and a scientific mind paint a logical pattern on the minds of her students. Both Miss Youmans and Mother Sebastian endeavor to transfer to their students a little of their artistic skill and knowledge. In addition to math and religion Mother teaches psychology also. 1.23.

Holland. Their generous guidance was ever ready and gladly given. Right-hand assistants of the librarians were the members of the Library Club. This club opened its year with a gala celebration of National Book Week. A Book Circus changed the library into a huge Big Top. A Book Ball attended by book characters climaxed the week. The library and the bulletin boards were kept up-to-the-minute with appropriate displays and posters. The next event on the calendar was Catholic Book Week, The read- ing of Catholic literature was stressed and in particular, Catholic magazines were collected and sent to the needy.

A lover of music from 'way back, she has instilled a part of this love into her students. It was she who was responsi- ble for our highly suctessful Fall Ifrolics in which eat h class participated. The entire song-filled produc- tion was planned out and discussed by students of the individual classes. This took many hours of hard work generously donated by Miss Hines. Our Christ- mas program, enjoyed by audience and performers alike, was a perfect prelude to the holidays. Miss Hines sponsors the Ursuline Glee Club and has an excellent group to work with for all her programs. She has also made possible many favor- able contacts for Ursuline students, She it was who successfully brought so many fine speakers to our Career Week in March.

Dra- matics is very essential in a well-rounded course of studies as well as in personality development. Participation in plays de- velops a sense of responsibility in the students and likewise teaches them to be unselfish. Through the Drama Club and the senior play, Mrs. Henry was able to carry out her aim in a better way. The senior play, Shubert Alley, and the Mission Night program, both directed by Mrs. Henry, were real tributes to her ability.

The sun shone brightly-then all in an instant, it was gone. Light is gone, warmth is gone, but peace and serenity come with the darkness and the coolness. 5 Such is the cycle of the life of Mary finterwoven, replaced as it were, with the lifc of Christj. For Christ died one day. Our Lady lost Him. She had died to self many years before, but now she truly died in Him. He had taken His flesh and blood from her flesh and blood. They were one. When His head fell upon His breast in submission to death, Mary's life was ended because He was no longer in it. But there is always Pentecost--in the life of every Christian, as there was in the life of Mary. Christ had told her that He must go so that the Spirit of joy and knowledge and understanding would come. And so in preparation for our embarkation into mun- dane waters, the night comes to Ursuline, and with the night the Holy Spirit. Solemn words are spoken. And in the quiet of the night their impression is deep. The Holy Spirit through our Ursuline mothers is molding our intellects to remember-even though Christ may seem to vanish from our lives in many future days- lo remember that He is always with us. He dwells among us, and we can behold His glory in each other. And in the night, we have known happiness only as the young in heart can know it. But why? Why will we remember the joy of working together, of being together, of making life-long friends, of doing everything through a motive of love? Because the Spirit has come upon us and given us understanding and counsel. We realized, we appreciated, the real significance of all the things we learned and enjoyed. Now we could look forward to the new day with hope and confidence. I03 In the liall, the impressive lfreshman Reception Ceremony was held. Bette Pringle as president of the Senior Class welcomed the lfreshmen to Ursuline and wished them success in their coming years at Ursuline.

FAMILY SPIRIT... Geraldine Hagemann and Judy Abright present greetings for the student body to Reverend Mother Celeste Hanlon, O.S.U. Provincial of the Ursulines of the Central Province. The students felt especially honored to have Reverend Mother Celeste here at Ursuline as it was Reverend Mother's first visit to the new academy. After the presentation of our gifts, the words of welcome by Patty Keehan and the singing of the school song by Patricia O'Hearn, Reverend Mother spoke beautifully on the desires of the Holy Father in regard to the Marian Year. The students were urged to imitate Mary so that the compliment cherished by every child, "you resemble your Mother," could be applied to them. We shall long remember the inspiring words and the gracious smile of our Reverend Mother Provincial. I05 X l Standing heneath the protettive figure of St. Ursula.

SENIOR SNOW BALL December 27 . . . It is the night of the gala Senior Snow Ball. How we have decorated with crystal snowflakes, glossy angel hair, twinkling blue lights and "modern snowmenf' How we anticipated the crowning of the unknown queen - the one girl in the class who had found a cherry in her queens cupcake. And how our hearts warm tonight as we meet Reverend Mother and Mother Dolores Marie in the rotuncla, and they wish us a wonderful time on this star-filled evening. Now we take our friends upstairs to a wonderland of music and laughter and friends. In the midst of the gaiety, the music stops suddenly-everyone is summoned downstairs. This is to be the big moment. A hush falls as all eyes turn toward the door out of which will step the queen, her crownbearer and attendant . . . After the crowning we return to winterland for the queens dance. We gather to chat at refreshment time, and then all too soon the dance is over. "Goodnight, Sweetheart" echoes across the ballroom, and we close our eyes tightly, as if to make the memories of this last moment of a perfect night stay with us forever. S Enjoying themselves as usual are Mitzi Furtula and Bob Lozica. Patty Keehan and David Dahm pause to ad- mire the whirling couples in the icy wonder- land. -C I08 i 11' 41.

Before the first hazy forerunners of the rising sun spread across the overhanging sky, in the quiet grey stillness, we ponder . . . we, the students of Ursuline today, pause. We must look forward, for, if not tomor- row, then the next day or the next, we shall leave this House of the Living God to make our way in the noisy, careworn, befuddled world. Then the Search will begin-the Search for Christ. He dwells within us, acts through us, yet still we shall search, loving Him so, hoping to know Him even more intimately with each passing day. We seek Heaven on earth. But never do we see the mercy, the wisdom, the charity of Our Divine Lover in their entirety here. Our eyes are veiled, we perceive only the least things, the unimportant things. The greatness, the boundless Beauty of Christ, we observe in snatches. It is as if we were on a whirling merry-go- round. Heaven is all around us, but we whirl so fast that we can only catch glimpses of it. Then finally in death we fall off--the movement stops, the music fades-and we look into the Face of Christ at last. The dawn will soon break. We shall feel Mary's presence with us. And take one last long look at our school where we met Our Friend, the Son Reluctantly we shall close the door and walk slowly away. And He will be us, remembering our first meeting. But we will search for the brief snatches, the glimpses of Truth all through And we shall meet Him again on a neon-lighted main street or a dark alley avenue.

With her magic wand ready to bring forth the court, Marshal, Marcia Stiles stands poised before the opening chords ring out on the evening air. MAY DAY Every May, the May Queen with her court regally steps out to receive her subjects, the students, their parents, and friends. On a warm evening in May as dusk begins to gather about the campus stretching before the columned front verandah of Ursuline, Miss Helen Hines, seated at the piano, heightens the anticipation of the crowd with the first resounding chords of the processional. In 1954, on May 14, "Girls! Girls! Girls!" rang through the air as the seniors in pastel formals broke into the theme song of the evening. While they sang, the juniors in Italian costume of bright colors, the sophomores in Scotch and Irish attire, and the freshmen in skirts of many hues and blouses worn by the girls of Spain, entered the May scene. The court, five senior princesses, joan Works, Barbara Bannan, jane Obst, Joanne McCaffrey, and Myrna Lamp- ing, and the Maid of Honor, Theresa Callahan, slowly promenaded to their places to await the entrance of the Queen, Mitzi Furtula. Each princess found her place in a golden frame to make six living portraits. The music stopped . . . there was a tremendous rushing sound, and an all enveloping white cloud formed. When the white haze cleared away, Queen Mitzi was seated in the most beautiful frame of all. Little boy trainbearers stood at attention on either side of the central frame. it ' fl? The gala opening of the 1954 May Day was the tuneful lyric of "Girls! Girls! Girls!" sung by the seniors. Looking out at the crowd, Princess Barbara jane seeins very happy. lfive hundred spectators watched l'rsuline's May Day proceedings. Princess joan Elizabeth smiles prettily from hc-i golden frame, joan was the first attendant chosen by the student body from the senior tlass ot' thirty-one girls. Joanne Catherine cannot believe that she, too, is a princess! Dresses had to be chosen, curtsies practiced and many difficulties overcome, but May Day finally arrived and with it the thrfll that only a princess may have. Princess jane Lee radiates the joy and gladness of this wonderful night with music and dancing such as Ursuline has never seen! Dances and songs from Scotland, Ireland, Italy and Spain were included in the program. Q7 Theresa Marie, Maid of Honor, waits expect- antly to crown Mitzi as queen. Theresa will be May Queen herself in 1955 after reigning in- conspicuously for the year. Lovely Princess Myrna Ann makes a picture of a pretty girl for all the little awe-struck boys and girls in the audience to see and remember for years to come. A medley of songs featuring girls' names and sung by the entire student body 'linked the parts of the colorful pageant. P 1 v 2 f' ' " l 4 l . I Q I 4. ,, i l IQ While the rest of the school sang "A Pretty Girl if Like a Melody," the maid of honor crowned Elizabeth Marie Furtula, Queen of the May.
