Twelve years ago about thirty little tots entered the first grade room,
frightened most of them nearly to tears, at the thoughts of leaving their mother for
the first time. What fun those days! Vera's beautiful red hair was visioned in
our childish minds to be like that of a princess. Gertls big hair ribbons were never
askew and she wore one of a different hue each day. We all envied Eileen's being
able to take our wonderful teacher riding in an automobile and we used to be
especially kind to Eileen with the hope that she might ask us to accompany them.
While Martha was one of our? babies she had the honor of posing for a picture of
the Blessed Virgin and Her Child. Whenever I saw that picture, which used to
hang in the corridors of Gannon Hall, it brough back memories of those days when
"Marty" was excused from Spelling to "pose,"
Genevieve's big brown eyes used to look out upon the world with a timid
glance and we very seldom heard much from Genevieve. Helen Barry and Peggy
Donohue were so tiny, hardly able to see up over the desks and always led the lines.
Roberta was with us then, too, and always joined in our game of "Sidewalks
Poison", which we played daily on the way home from school. It usually took us
hours to reach our homes for we did not hurry in any way the game we delighted
in playing. Oh! and lsabelle's curls-they were lovely. Quite the most beautiful
Pd ever seen. Jean sang for our programs in those by-gone days too, dear little
songs which I am sure she could not remember now, no matter how hard she tried.
I can't forget Mary Gannon. Vile couldn't imagine anything nicer than being the
niece of the newly appointed Bishop. Lucille Diotallevi always wore as beautiful
coats in those days as she wears now. l was the "talker" then and I still seem
capable of holding that position.
"Little Sally Saucer" and "Ring Around the Rosiel' were the games we
played daily at recess. I'll never forget the campus in those daysg it was much
larger than now leaving so much space for play. Our Christmas Parties were the
best ever. Santa Claus certainly found a crowd of enthusiasts when he visited our
I could go on like this forever, relating so many incidents of those happy
days. We have only thirlteen of that old crowd left now but we all agree that if
'we could have but one day of those dear "ole days" to live again, it would be--
canit you imagine?
B. K., '31
st as its
.g -One silent night, as the heavenly joy of sleep seemed to descend upon the
world at large, looking out of our window we began counting the stars. We reached
the great number of fifty-two when the idea of finding out the secrets of these
fifty-two stars seized us. They clung and filled our thoughts with fantastic rev-
eries. Suddenly they changed from stars of the nighlt to women of the world. As
we gazed upon these heaven-like people, recognition suddenly dawned upon us and
we realized that we were looking into the future, rather than the present.
Look at that beautiful buildingl Why, it's a girl's school and who do you
think is at the head of it? None other than Grace Anshutz and she has for her
assistant Isabelle Mullen.. We always knew that Grace and Isabelle were headed
for that sort of a vocation. Let us look around the building for a while. There
is Mlle. Cantrambone teaching French to a group of intelligent students. Our pre-
diction has been fulfilled. And there is Esther Keim trying to get the knowledge
of triangles and rectangles through the heads of her pupils. And look! There is
Madeline Eisert, a chemist l-We shall have to shift our gaze.
Vlfhy, there's the new hospital. VVe had better go in there a while. We
might accidentally see someone we know. Sure emough. There's Catherine Shee-
han. the head of all the nurses and there are Anna Winoski, Ann Harkins and
Roberta Heald, looking for all the world like professionals in their positions as
nurses. Goodness! How we wish' we could keep our eyes in the same direction
longer, but no such luck. There they go wandering again.
That star looks familiar, and it is familiar. Ttis Helen Cunningham coach-
ing some young basketball enthusiasts. And there's Mary Catherine Peebles swim-
ming teacher. By the looks of it, Helen and Mary Catherine have accomplished
QPerched on her star and looking serenly around was Elsie Kauhfold. Elsie
plays the lead in one of Broadway's favorite productions. And talking about stars.
Tsn't that Martha Kennedy? Tt is, and look at that girl dance. Her li-eight of fame
has been reached just as we thought.
Farther on we beheld Betty Kinney. She is now editor of one of the news-
papers and she has for her assistants, Rita Greulich and Mary Alyce Regan. These
three young women have been very successful with the task they have undertaken.
We can now see Lucille Klick. She is manager of her father's store, which
has grown to be Erie's leading furniture store, presenting some of the best furni-
ture displays ixn the city. And Lucille Diotallevi has taken over the Diotallevi
furrier shop. The Lucilles seem to be very successful in that sort of profession.
Mary Hedlund next appeared, seated behind a desk with "Private Secre-
tary" marked in huge white letters at the side, and there are Gertrude Firch, Paul-
ine Eiswerth, and Anna Lovas busily typing some letters. It must be wonderful
to be so accomplished in secretarial work.
In that same office is Helen Brutcher. We wonder what she is doing now.
lVe shall have to transfer our gaze a little. Why she is the Genenal Bookkeeper
and Filing Manager in this great office of acquaintances.
A flittering and a fluttering on the part of one of our objects of interest
revealed the petite figures of Margaret Donahue and Dorothy Flanagan hurrying
clown the streets of New York. Let us follow them a short distance. Goodness!
They have gone into that large department store. We wonder what for. They
must be buyers for some of the stores of Erie.
Oh! And there goes a big liner headed for European points. We wonder
if there is anybody sailing whom we know? There is no harm in looking anyway.
There is Rita Claire Alberstadt. stretched out on a deck chair with a steamer rug
draped carefully about her. Pleasure was evidently her object and again we were
thrilled at the thought of adventure.
Anna Nucerino next appeared surrounded by hats of every description. It
was evident that Anna was a milliner.
A large sign reading "Head Librarian" appeared before us. This young
woman looks like one of our old acquaintances. This is Alice Jeanin with her uni-
form of blue and white.
The thirtieth star revealed the face of our school mate, Genevieve Flanagan.
She was truly a star in the modern sense, for she had now attained the heighth
of her ambition and was enchanting the public with her beautiful voice i11 the guise
of Grand Opera.
The next bright orb of the heavens quickly changed into a trim little stunt-
plane. Let's look and see who its pilot is. It is Helen Barry, the young aviatrix,
noted for her clever stunt flying. E
Why are these two stars so close together? Letls investigate and find out
for ourselves who they are. Of course! They are none other than Cecilia Yeager
and Nora Burke, renowned comediennes of the day. They have become famous
through their humorous dialogues, and are now looking over the footlights of
Immediately veering our glances into a further corner of the skies we see
a group of stars closely assembled. By close inspection a bridge tea is easily dis-
cerned. There sits Jeanne Brinig at the head of the table, beautifully decked in
an afternoon frock. Round about her is a group of old school mates-her pals of
ten years agof-Martha Angert, lsabelle Flynn, Margaret Regan, Audrey Wittrnan
and Gertrude Carson. We wonder if by chance they too may be discussing the happy
days of yore which we spent at dear old Villa-our Alma Mater.
Again we revert our gazes. This next star seems to be moving swiftly. We
cannot imagine what is causing this, we must make a close observation in order
to find out. Why--if it isn't a girl on horseback-Helen Beamish, an equestrienne
--asftride a snowy white horse, jauntily riding at a rhythmetic trot.
The next bright st-ar brings to our eyes the face of a young woman who is
neatly clad in the neatest Parisian mode. It is Mabel Wagnen, who has become
the owner of a neat modiste Shoppe, in which career she had proven herself a great
The next heavenly body apparently visible to us is Vera Mayo, a noted harp-
ist. This was always meant to be her career, as we prophesied in our high school
As we continue our dreamy star gazing we encounter Mary Gannon, an in-
terior decorator, assisted in her profession by Audrey TVeindorff. They a1'e well-
known for their ability to remodel old-fashioned homes into the last minute up-to-
What does this next star represent which is almost blinding us, moving at
such a fleeting speed? Why if it isn't a dashing yellow roadster-behind the Wheel
Mary Enright is seated, neatly attired in a sports suit, and beside her on the seat
is her golf bag, filled with golf clubs. As ever Mary is off in search of her usual
round of pleasure.
Reverting our gaze to a higher height we behold the cheerful and humor-
ous smile of Elaine Gallagher, busily engaged in her household duties. At school,
her pals were always telling of her fine cooking. Still higher We meet the glance
of Virginia Doerrler, who is at last happily wedded and keeping house.
The stars are beginning to fade from our veiw, but yet let us stay and find
out the secret h.idden behind the bright lights of the few remaining onesg over
there is Marie Szczepanski. She is holding her audience in admiration and awe
as they listen to her sweet voice. The stage curtain falls and loud applause ensues.
A large sign "Journalism" reveals the fact that another of our classmates,
Thecla Heinlein, ha.s climbed the ladder of fame also.
Then behind convent walls we perceived the countenance of Theresa La-
price, delved deep in prayer for departed souls.
Last but not least appears the sweet face of our dear little Margaret Per-
otta. She is wearing the garb of a St, Joseph nun, and has become the Directoress
of our old Villa. She is honored and revered by all who know her.
Finally all the stars extinguish their bright orbs of light, as the blush of the
coming dawn is beginning to redden the heavens in their stead. Our star gazing
is at an end. As you may easily perceive, we-Helen Spiesman and Grace Kaiser
--have cast our lots in the fields of profession together as star gazers.

The Seniors' Farewell
Good-bye, little Freshies, we once were like you,
Meek as the violets, studious too.
Good-bye, sister Sophomores, you'll be here some day
Good-bye to the Juniors, you now can hold sway. ,
Good-bye to the dreams, the hopes and the fears
Good-bye to the joys, good-bye to the tears.
Sweet, although bitter, joyous, though sad,
Just memories now, are all that are had.
You're memories now. Theylve sounded your knell.
Good-bye, goodluck! 'Tis the Senior's Farewell.

The choice of a Roman theme for the nineteen thirty-one publication of
"The Trumpet" was prompted by the world-wide celebration of the two thousandth
anniversary of the birth of Virgil. Let ns hope that the "good poet lms not heceonie
so long and happi y accustomed to his Elysian home among the 'locos laetos et
amoenin virec-ta"--tthe blessed seats among the lovely woods' that he has forgotten
this world of men, which once deeply moved his great and tender heart, und can-
not smile gratefully and approvingly upon this little attempt of ours to add to hie
unlimited praise of the past year.
This Being a Junior
Folks around may envy me,
And say I ought to be
Why? Pm a Junior you see.
But this being a so-called Junior
Is not what it's cracked up to be.
Not when those dignified Seniors
Are forever prying on nie.
I'm to take their shining example
And keep it for a sample
l'm not to whisper in the hall
Or make one tiny sound at all.
Besides looking up to the Seniors, true
Giving example to the Sophomores, too
I have quite a little task in hand
One sometimes Very hard to command.
But then the time is coming, too
Vlfhen I will have to see
To all the things the others do
And be a Senior free.
I suppose I should be happy
And enjoy my privileges few
Until I am a Senior
And won't have others tell nie what to do.

The Juniors made their first appearances as hostesses at a successful card
party given for the public on October 21. This was followed by a Snow-ball Dance,
a novelty on our Social Calender.
The outstanding event of the year was the Junior-Senior banquet which
will always be reinernbered as a climatic event in the scholastic career of the

The initiation of the Freshmen was the first social event of the Sophomore
year. It was naturally a very unhappy occasion for the new students but very
amusing to the upper classmen. The Freebies, however, "heaped coals of fire" on
the heads of the Sophs by giving them a very entertaining Valentine party, and
friendly intercourse was restored between the two classes.
The soiree given by the Sophs was the Charity Party given during the
Christmas season. The success of the party was due mostly to the hearty co-opera-
tion of the student body.
Under the guidance of our English teacher the Sophoniores formed a Lit-
erary Club. The programs were very enjoyable and were dedicated to some
author or artist whose birthday occurred during the week.
The class of '33 completed their social activities for the year
ing farewell party for the Seniors.

No sooner were we settled down to good hard study than there came the
hectic time of initiation. After surviving a week of jokes and pranks, in which
nothing more than our pride was hurt, we once more resumed our studies.
Next came the election of class officers:
President ................ Jeanne Blila
Secretary . . . .,.. Adelaide Eisweirth
Treasurer .............. Dorothy Gull
The Senior Class welcomed us with a costume ball in October and on Feb-
ruary 13, we sponsored a St. Valentine' s Party for the High School with the Sopho-
mores as our guests-by this returning the favor of initiation. In the early part
of June we hope to give a party as a farewell to the Seniors.

An Ode to Villa Girls
When you see a. pair of shining eyes,
And teeth as white as pearl,
A smile that tries to be world-wise,
That's a Villa Girl!

And a collar white as snow,
Offset by a broad smile of glee,
That's a Villa Girl-I know!

A Repentance That Came Too Late
'fYou have a lovely daughter, Mrs. Thorpe,'l said the visitor as she was
leaving the door. '4She is such a favorite with her frierndsf' Her attention had
been attracted by a happy, rosy-faced girl coming down the hill from St. Mary's
Academy with her friends.
"Yes, Stella is the life of our home," answered her mother quietly, and, with
a last good-bye, she turned and re-entered the living-room.
A moment after, she heard Stella rush through the hall and the sound of her
rummaging in the closet off the hall. I
"What is it, Stella 2" she asked.
"Oh, my skates!" Stella replied, appearing at the living-room door, an im-
patient frown upon her brow. "A person can never find anything in this housef'
"I think, my dear, that you put them in the closet under the stairway,"
suggested Mrs. Thorpe, gently, as Stella hurried off again.
"Yes, I have found themj' the daughter called. '4Grood-bye, mother, I won't
be out long," and the light-hearted girl was gone.
No wonder she was a favorite with her school chums, for a happier, mo1'c
unaffected girl than Stella Thorpe was hard to find. Strength of character lay in
her sweet face and an intelligent mind acted under her dark hair. But, in her
home, this beaut-y was slightly marred. She did not think so much of 'it now as
at first, for cross and impatient words were becoming a common thing. When her
conscience did remind her, she would ease it by thinking: "Oh, well, she doesn't
mind it, she knows I don't mean anything by them, anyway.
Her mother, however, did mind them and was often hurt, although she never
reprimanded Stella about this fault.
' Stella was almost a grown girl now, and her mother, a. rather delicate Woman,
looked to her for all that love and sympathy which a mother is justified in expect-
ing from her daughter. Stella gave up many pleasures that she might be company
for her, for she loved her mother dearly, and was unkind in just this one way.
That evening as Mrs. Thorpe was lounging in a comfortable arm chair in
the living room which was lighted only by the flames from the fire-pl-ace, Stella
drew up a chair and sat by her side, resting her head on her moither's knee so that
her hand softly caressed her face and glossy head.
"Stella,,' said Mrs. Thorpe presently, '4If I should go away for a few weeks,
would you try to fill my place and cheer your father ZW
"Why, where are you going?" asked Stella, in a surprised tone.
"The doctor says I must go to the city, and be under the care of a good
surgeon, if I am to get wellf'
There was silence for a moment and finally Stella said in a low voice: "Of
course, mother, you must get well. I am sure I will do my best." A sweet look of
tender affection greeted the motherls eye.
While Mrs. Thorpe sat there still stroking the face and hair of her beloved
child, Stella tried to imagine home without her moth-er. How she regretted, too,
the many rude words she had spoken, and, as her thoughts came thick and fast, she
prayed from her heart that God would return this precious gift.
Soon after Mrs. Thorpe's departure, Stella experienced the terrible loneli-
ness which only a mother's absence could produce. As Mr. Thorpe7s business forced
him to be absent every day except at mealtime and a few e-venings a week, Stella
did not have a hard time cheering him. It was then that she missed her mother
most. It was then that her conscience smo-te her for the many unpleasant words
she had spoken to her best earthly friend. Oh, how she regretted the cutting
words she had uttered to her dear mother's request that she refuse a certain invita-
tion! lt was then she resolved to guard carefully this abominable habit and never
speak an impatient. word to her mother again. But, how often one forgets resolu-
tions made with the fullest intentions of keeping.
lt was with great joy that Stella looked forward to the day of her motheris
return. How happy she became as she freshened the house and adorned it with
flowers. How her heart sang as she made these preparations! With What out-
bursts of greetings did she not welcome her at the station!
However, after a few days life began again to fall into routine. Stella soon
found her old habit asserting itself and though at times she fought bravely she
gradually drifted into a discorntented miss whose bitterness of tongue in herthome
was far from edifying.
As she returned from a party one evening her mother pleasantly inquired
whether she had enjoyed herself. Quick as a flash came the answer, "As good as
can be expected in a dress one has worn continuously at every social affair for a
whole year. Marion's mother cared enough about her to have finished making
the dress, the material of which she bought the same day I bought mine."
Poor 1nother! How that hurt! Silently she rose from her chair and left
the room. Stella's heart sank for she knew that her mother had been feeling poorly
again and that as a result was obliged to lay aside the unfinished garment. Sadly
she sought forgiveness which was graciously given from the lovable and Weary
After a restless and troublesome night Stella rose the next morning at the
call of her father who informed her that he had called Dr. Post for mother was
quite ill. Half-dressed she rushed to the bedside of the patient only to be turned
away as the doctor and nurse arrived. Finishing her dressing she anxiously
awaited Dr. Post's coming from the sick room. Calling Mr. Thorpe aside, he was
about to speak to him when Stella, unable to control herself any longer cried:
'fTell me, too. My mother will get well, won't she?,'
Gravely he turned to the tear-stained face of Stella and full of sympathy
said: 'fPossibly, but there are complications which means a hard fight."
Dutifully and lovingly sho watched her mother suffer. How she longed to
change places with her. Over and over again she tried to tell the patient sufferer
how sorry she was for every unkind word she had uttered. Mother smiled but
was too weak to assure the brokenhearted daughter that she had long since for-
As the days wore on it became quite evident that the patient was beyond all
earthly he-lp. Just before the dawn of an early May morning her soul took flight
to its Master. Tenderly Mr. Thorpe carried the unconscious Stella to her room
where she was obliged to remain for the whole day.
During the quiet hours of the night Stella stole into the dimly-lighted liv-
ing-rooni where her mother's corpse lay. How those closed eyes which she had
caused so recently to fill with tears tortured her! How those motionless hands th at
had served her every whim made her heart bleed! There in those grief-sticken mo-
ments Stella changed from a carefree, quick-tempered girl to an amiable, serious

The Best Alms
The crisp November morning had dawned bright and clear and already
famous Broadway was thronged with traffic. Its sidewalks were alive with
humans all hurrying to their respective duties.
Faces-hundreds of faces-sad faces, joyous faces, faces on which time and
care had left their imprint, faces reflecting prosperity and poverty, young faces
and faces robbed of youth. All of these received casual glances, but one, the face
of a middle aged man which commanded a second glance. His face radiated pros-
perity, his step was light and elastic and he was dressed with meticulous care. What
was the cause of this happiness? W'hat made his face radiate such joy and peace?
Were we to look into his mind we could easily realize his happiness. This was
the trend of his thoughts :---
t'By Jove, this is a wonderful morning! I surely feel happy, and why not?
Am I not a successful broker, have I not a comfortable home, a beautiful and
loving wife and two of the sweetest, sturdiest children on the face of the earth?
Ah, indeed, who wouldnit be happy?" thought he as he turned into the doorway of
a famous brokerage company-but. wait! Standing in the doorway, there was a
pencil vendor grasping his pencils and tin cup in one cold hand and vainly endeav-
O1'l1lg to keep warm by holding his thin and worn coat close to his undernourished
body with the other. The broker's heart expanded with pity at this sight, and
stuffing his hand into his pocket, he drew forth some change and dropped it into
the cup at the same time informing the man to keep his pencils.
This he did every morning until it finally became somewhat of a habit.
A year had passed and the broker was sitting in a swivel chair before a desk
in his large and well furnished office. Business had lulled for a time and he was
musing. His mind traveled to the pencil vendor in the doorway. He began weav-
ing a romance about the poor fellow's life. Perhaps he had a wife and children,
too. With a pang he realized that they would not be well supported if they de-
pended entirely upon the vendor-'s earnings. The man should have a better posi-
tion, but, indeed, was he not encouraging the man's condition? He was lowering
the man in his own conscience, making a beggar out of him by not accepting the
pencil he had paid for.
The next day, as he dropped the usual change into the man's tin cup, he
said, "You know, my friend, I have been giving you charity and you are a mer-
chant! W'hy, I have been doing you a great wrong! From now on I am going
to take the pencil that I pay for." The vendor looked into the broker's eyes. No,
there was no sign of mockery in them and slowly a light dawned over his face.
In a few months the vendor had opened a stand in the lobby of that broker-
age house. It was a great step forward and he accredited his success and pros-
perity to the man who had called him a 'Kmerchant."
Years have passed since that November morning when the broker for the
first time addressed the pencil vendor, but the light in his eyes is even brighter
and his step lighter for he realizes that true happiness consists in service-first to
God, then to His creatures.

Wasliringtoii Irving is America's pioneer in the field of general literature.
His mother was a gentle English woman, his father a stern Scotch Presbyterian.
He was the youngest of eleven children and it is said that he inherited the best
traits of each of his parents, although he was very lazy and in many ways resem-
bled his later character, Rip Van 'Winkle, in that he never took life seriously or
saw the necessity of work.
In his outward appearance he was a man of medium height, rather stout
of build, with dark gray eyes and delicate eyebrows, a straight handsome nose
and shapely head. He was a humorous, modest, genial, sunny man, with a very
He was also very generous as can be seen by the fact that when writing a
history of Mexico he learned that the blind Prescott was planning such a work,
he courteously abandoned the field and Prescott never knew what a sacrifice Irv-
Among the many of Irving's works are: the "Sketch Book," "Life of Ylfasli-
ington," the "Alhambra," the "Life of Columbus," and the "Knickerbocker's His-
tory of New York.
I1'Vl11g,S "Knickerbocker's History of New York" was issued anonymously
and was advertised as having proceeded from a small, elderly gentleman in black
coat and cocked hat. He received 963,000 for this work.
In point of rank the world has long since given Irving an eminent place
among men of letters. He entered into the departed glories of the Moors and re-
peopled the Alhambra as no other writer has done. He described Westiiiiiistei'
Abb-ey with such simplicity and feeling that Charles Kingsley, himself a master
of English prose, felt his own pen fall powerless. He loved the ancestral halls, the
lanes and hedges of England as few of her native sons. He entered into the life
of Abbotsford and made Walter' Scott his friend for life, and yet, all claim the
scenes of his greatest works are near at hand and at home. He is to the Cats-
kill mountains and the lower Hudson what Scott is to Trossachs, to Edinburgh
and Tweed. The Alhambra, Westminster Abbey and Abbotsford might have
been described by another, but no other hand but I1'Vl11g,S could have painted
Sleepy Hollow. No other eye could have seen Ichabod Crane as he saw him.
Irving was born in 1783 and died in 1858. He traveled abroad extensively
and wrote many of his works in Europe.
One of the finest tributes paid to him is a poem by Howell:
"To a true poet heart add the fun of Dick Steele,
Throw in all of Addison, minus the chill
With the whole of that partnership's stock and good will.
Mix well, and while stirring hum o'er as a spell,
The fine old English gentleman, simmer it well
Sweeten just to your private liking--then strain
That only the finest and clearest remain,
Let it stand ont of doors 'till a soul it receives
Froni thc warm, lazy sun, loitering clown thro' green leaves
And you'fl find a choice nature, not wholly deserving
A nanie neither English nor Yankee-just Irving."

In the budding trees above,
The robin sings his best
To his inate a song of love.
VVhen the earth pours forth its treasures
And glance o'er the field's bright green,
They arise from their wintry beds
And give tidings of glorious Spring.
Wheii the earth pours forth its treasures
Upon this world of tears,
The breezes blow their ineasures
And carry away our fears.
When the merry brooks are rippling
Through meadow, as they sing,
Their winding waters giving
A song in praise of Spring.
When the sun shines down again,
TiVith its brightening golden rays,
It opens each and every flower
And brings back joyous days.
The long, cold days have passed,
The stoiins and winds no longer jeer,
For the very breeze and atinosphere
Prove to us that Spring is here!

After High., School, What?
The month o-f J une, will again witness a great a.rmy of boys and girls-
young men and women, if you will-the hope of the nation, marching forth from
the portals of the high schools of the land, ready to embark on the great ship,
OPPORTUNITY, to sail the tempestuous sea of LIFE, and hoping eventually
to reachlthe shores of SUCCESS.
lfVe seem to takeit quite as a matter of cou1'se that thousands of students
should graduate every year. We attend closing exercises, and perhaps we give
the graduates a passing thought-but it is only a passing thought. What place in
life will these young people find or make for themselves? Do we ever stop to give
this a consideration?
These boys and girls step forth into a new life, a life entirely different
from that which they have been leading. Their ultimate aim is to achieve great-
ness-greatness as they see it. They are confronted with serious problems, with
great difficulties. Obstacles block every step of thc way. They are sometimes
puzzled, often bewildered. How do they stand this test? Are they equipped to
meet this crisis? Some turn the odds to their advantage, others fail.
The preparation that the high school course furnishes should be, as it
were, an armor to help in the battle with the world. Especially is this true of
the student who has had the training of a Catholic High School. Here, she has
been taught, by precept, and by example, the fundamental principles of right
conduct and true morality, which is the foundation stone of education, the first
beginning and the last end of success. Here, too, if she has been a thoughtful
student, one who has planned her course with a future goal in view, she has the
equipment which will enable her, at least, to demand the opportunity to reach
Students today have a wide range of professions from which to choose their
life work. The same fields are open to men and Women. ln former days, a
woman who achieved any degree of success not only stood out before the eyes of
the world but also towered above all other women. There was but one Joan of
Arc, one Saint Theresa, one Madame Currie. Today we find women doing many
remarkable things. We find them at the head of great business concerns, they
are outstanding in the arts, and many have achieved success in the professional
life. They are trained to be lawyers, doctors, nurses, artists, and musicians. They
are intrusted with great responsibilities and have been successful in every line
The new life, to many women, is fascinating. WVe hear a great deal of the
joy of pursuing a career. However glowing the future may seem, some young
women who have imbibed the great lessons of their Divine Master, to leave all
and follow Him, turn aside from these alluring prospects and dedicate their lives
to God as members of a religious connnunity. They have had a vision of success,
a success which surpasses all earthly achievements--se1-vice to God.
After high school what? How often this question confronts the thoughtful
student, especially as the last days of her high school career draw near! To some.
it is a question of a choice of college wherein they plan to continue their educa-
tion, to others it may be the problem of making a livelihood, to secure a place
in the world of business or industry, while many young women choose the teach-
ing career. .
The field of teaching has been open to women since the fifteenth century.
ln that period, we find women teaching in the mediaeval universities. This pro-
fession, whether pursued by the religious or the layman, has, down the ages, been
considered a noble calling. All famous thinkers have stressed the value of an
education, and the influence of the true teacher upon his pupil.
Plato said, "A good education is that which gives to the body and soul all
the beauty and perfection of' which they are capable."
VVho has, in great measure, the task-nay, the opportunity to implant this
beauty of soul? Who, after the father and mother, comes in closest contact with
the child? Hence it is, that teaching looms up as a life-work through which We
may render the greatest service to God and to our fellowmen.
The teacher, more than any other outside influence, helps to mould the
character of her pupil. She is the one who directs the activities of the child into
constructive channels. She it is who leads the student to appreciate beauty in all
its forms. She is the one who attempts to stamp out the undesirable qualities and
bring out the good. In truth, she is partially responsible for the character and
attitude of every child under her care.
The teacher imparts to the minds of her pupils a sense of honor, a spirit of
sympathy and broadmindedness, as well as all those other qualities and accomplish-
ments which are so necessary for participation in social life.
Another purpose of education is to develop social efficiency, the absence of
which yields the multitude of social parasites-the criminals and idlers that men-
ace onr city life.
It is the work of the earnest teacher to inculate habits which produce or
establish character, to create in the minds and hearts of those committed to her
care an honest. purpose and a keen appreciation of the exalted and Worth-while
in life, and above all, to instill an abhorrence of that which is vile and degrading.
YVho shall say-she has not achieved true success? She has served her
country in training its future administrators-she has served her God-in servving
His creatures-making them nobler-stronger-and happier.
Carlyle-the great English essayist-has said-"It is great-and there is no
other greatness-to make one nook of God's creation more fruitful--betterfmore
worthy of God-to make some human heart-a little Wiser-inanlier-happier-
more blessed-less accursedf'

" Memories "
"Thus in the stilly night,
Ere slumber's chain has bound me,
Sad memories bring the light
Of other days around me."
Memories! Oh, indeed, who of us does not have memories which we hold
sacred and guard in the treasure vaults of our hearts? Memories recorded in tiny
books-memories over which we smile and sometimes sigh.
With the passing of years-years which leave their imprint upon our brow
-as we sail over the vast sea of life, we delight in blissful solitude and in allow-
ing our fancies to roam once again through the flower-strewn lanes of youth.
Our most beautiful memories are those of our school days-days when we
shared joy and sorrow and formed friendships clearer than life. No matter the
distance We roam, regardless of the years that intervene, nothing can erase from
our minds those happy recollections. With a whimsical smile, we recall ourselves
as "wee freshiesf' bewildered by the new routine of high sehool5 we recall the lump
that arose in our throats and the unashamed tears that gathered in our eyes and
streamed down our faces as we bade farewell to our beloved Alma Mater and class-
mates, and prepared to set the sails of our little ship that we might embark upon
the unknown sea of serious responsibility.

The Descriptive Art of the Aeneid
if The greatest work of Rome's famed poet, Virgil, is
the "Aene'id". The fact is generally known that the
Aeneid is lacking in originality-for the first six books are
modeled after the Odyssey and the last six after the battles
of the Tlliad. However, his skill in the coinage of new
words and the haunting music of his versifcation are entire-
,Y fu . -

if . , M .nu
Virgil worked at the Aeneid with the utmost deliberation and care, but he
did not live to perfect it. He bequeathed it to two friends, Varius and Tucca who
edited it with the greatest care. In the form which it thus remived, the Aeneid
became immediately the most popular and most highly esteemed poem of the
Roman people. - A
VVith the adventures of Aeneas, the poet interweaves allusions to the
glories of the Julian line of which the Trojan hero was the assumed ancestor.
Virgil also includes prophecies of the future splendor of the city of Rome.
Although the Aeneid is considered inferior to the great works after which
it was patterned and many of the characters seem unreal, especially the hero
Aeneas, yet the various scenes and happenings are handled in the most expert man-
ner and with a very high degree of poetical depth and feeling. '
Virgil depicts the beauty and sorrow of life as a true artist. He must
indeed have delved deeply into the understanding of human nature when he could
so authentically paint characters as they underwent various emotions-infinite
pity, shadowy hope or flaming exultation.
To make many of his passages clearer and more beautiful the poet often
applied rhetorical expressions. Virgivs similes are cl-ear both in. thought and ex-
pression, His alliteration makes the poem v-ery musical and harmonious. Truly,
no poet ever made more effective use of rhetoric in verse. Simplicity, however,
was the key to his style.
When the Aeneid was first distributed, it became a school book, and as
such it has remained for two thousand years. The Aeneid stands as a fitting
monument of the illustrious Roman people. Tn conclusion it may he quoted, "The
Aeneid" is the "stateliest measure ever moulded by the lips of man."

My Virgilian Dream
It was an evening in early autumn, just outside the little village of Andes
in the year 54 B. C. The great golden harvest moon Shining down through the
interlaced boughs of the trees made intricately designed patterns upon the soft
grass. Standing beside a small smoothly-flowing stream, a tall dark-skinned youth
in the toga. of young manhood, and a fair, almost. blonde maid, an unusual thing
in an Italian, sadly contemplated its silvery surface. A E
"We must partf' the youth was saying. "Perhaps it is for the best. My
father is old, and he has paid dearly to educate me thus fa1'. It Will break his
heart if I go not on to Milan. Thou knowest I am not strongg and poetry, it
seems, must truly be the lot designated for me by the gods. But remember
Carissima in all that l may write, as in all that I have written, you are the in-
spiration, the good, and the beautiful. I shall think of you always as waiting
here for me. May the gods forever keep you, and now farewell."
Thirty-five years passed. On September 22, B. C., Publius Virilius Mare,
unquestionably the greatest of Roman poets, a favorite of the gods, and intimate
friend of emperors, died at the age of fifty-one. His secretary at Home in going
over Virgil's papers discovered a poem, "Carissima,', and noted underneath
f'SeparationH. This secretary to Whom Virgil had dictated all his poems per-
ceived that never before had he realized the true genius of his master. This
one poem, though not particularly long was greater by far than even the
"Aeneid", for it contained the deepest, yet most elevating emotion of Virgil's life.
That. evening on his way home, the secretary was set upon by robbers.
The next morning his lifeless body was taken from the Tiber, and with him, for
the paper had disappeared, died the greatest of the great Virgil's work.

The Autobiography of Ninety-Nine Four-

I left my friend, Proctor and Gamble, one bright. morning and boarded
a fast freight train. There were many companions, travelling with me and we
had a most sociable and jovial time.
Finally the train reached my destination. I was all excited and thrilled
to see the crowd that swarmed at the station. They all seemed to have their
own duties and were busily engaged in executing them. But I felt equally as
important because I too was going to represent a certain large business concern
in New York. As I left the train I was greeted by a representative of this
concern who had brought a large truck in which to convey me to my new po-
I stayed with this company for several days. Eventually some strangers
came and made it known that they would like to transfer me from the place
where I was to their own store which was situated in a little village a few miles
off. I eagerly assented because I knew that I should have the pleasure of be-
coming popular in a small town. As, indeed I did. -
When I arrived at the little village, my new employers took me to their
store. It was a quaint old building and pleasant indeed. I believe it was
called "general store" and this name was most appropriate for it seemed to me
that there was just about everything one could wish displayed there.
I was told that my duty was to be that of a model. I was placed upon
a shelf in a very prominent position. There I poised very dignified proud and
happy. On one side of me sat someone whom I learned was known as "Kirk's
Flake Soapf' But I thought my grey wrapper was decidedly more attractive
than his so I really did not notice him a great deal.
I remained on this shelf for some time. 'When a small boy came into the
store and purchased me. I grew sad because I had 'to leave my position-but one
can not always be satisfied. ' The boy very thoughtlessly stuffed me into his
deep pocket and there I remained very disheartened. At length we reached his
home, where he presented me tohis mother.
The woman removed my beloved wrapper and placed me in a pan of
piping hot dish water. I enjoyed this dip and bounded around in sheer joy.
However, when I left the dish-water I noted that I was much thinner. Soon
the little boy came over and placed a. pair of very dirty hands upon me. I was
annoyed at first, but when he placed me in the water, I was again happy and
skimmed over the top of the water.
After many days of much the same routine, I became alarmed for
I was aware that daily, in fact, hourly, I was becoming thinner and thinner.
Finally I realized that I was but a shadow of my former self.
One day I was placed in a large vessel of pleasing, warm water. I floated
around just as usual. Suddenly I felt myself ,going-going-going-alone to!!
And so, I simply faded and at length wasted' away into my glory, Thus my
life's work wasted away into one large bubble of complete satisfaction.

Once in the evening's twilight
I saw in the embers' glow,
A sweet old fashioned garden
That l loved long years ago.
It was only an old fashioned garden
Witli flowers of every hue,
That shone and sparlcled like dliamonds
YVith the fall of the morning dew.
The golden daffodils danced in glee
The eroouses laughed at their spryness,
The tulips, too, seemed bright and gay
The forget-me-nots drooped in shyness.
The morning glories peeped their heads
In and out the pieketed fence,
And the pinks with the blushing roses
Poured forth sweet-smelling scents.
Now Lifels youth is past, its birds have
Its flowers are dead and gone,
But mem'ries of my garden
Still flood my heart with peace and song.

Oft, I sit in contemplation and as the golden hours fly,
I am Wafted back on the wings of time to pleasant days gone by.
To memories which swell my empty heart with exalted gladness,
Memories which render my heart, but an aching sea of sadness.
Thinking of our unhappy parting when you said adieu.
Desiring yet in vain, to live those moments again with you.
Hours We spent together are locked safely in my breast,
Guarded like the musty gold of a pirate's treasure chest.
There no living being can rob me of my riches
Because they are secreted in my heart's most secluded niches.
Then, I awaken to reality and my soul begins to ache,
But, T struggle on for the memories of old timcls sake.

There was a tumult in the city,
In the quaint old Quaker town,
And the streets were filled with people,
Pacing restless up and down.
Now the hlue Atlantic currents,
Lashed the old Newfoundland shore,
They beat against the State House,
They surged against the door.
They surged against the State House,
While all solemnly inside,
Sat the Continental Congress,
Truth and reason for their guide.
O'er a simple scroll debating
Though simple as it be,
Yet ltwould make them free forever,
From Englaud's cruel tyranny.
F ar aloft in a. high steeple,
A bellman lifts his hand,
And forth he sends the joyous news,
Making music through the land.
How the people shouted,
VVhen the old bell shook the air!
For when that clang of freedom sounded.
Independence reigned everywhere.

Our sojourn here at the Villa is now rapidly drawing to a close, but some--
how we do not feel the jubiliation we anticipated.
Students generally look forward with a great deal of joy to the day when
they will be graduated for it- is their crown of success after four years of striving
Frankly, we do feel a sense of satisfaction that we have, in common par-
lance, "made good", but it seems to me the poet spoke truly who said, "the
greatest joy is always tinged with a bit of sadness." Smiles and tears are life's
composition. We are happy because the goal is won and life is about to place us in
a different setting, another act in the drama. Some will pursue higher studies
while others, less fortunate, will take their places in the workaday world about us.
How Memory, that sweet haunting spirit from the past, takes ns back to
our first day in high school! It seems as but yesterday when we first entered its
portals as untutored young fledglings, awed by the solemn but peaceful walls.
lVere we not a little thrilled by the thought that we were now high-school students?
Here in the years that followed were we not taught the beauties of life
and how to understand and appreciate them? We1'e' not the beauties of our
religion, of poetry, of music, art and literature placed vividly before our minds?
In an environment naturally conducive to contemplation, we enjoyed de-
lightful Spring noon hours wandering in the cool grove while around and about
us the Sisters passed with grave and measured tread.
Long will we remember with a pang of regret, the peaceful and holy
stillness of OUR LAIJY'S CHAPEL where oft we uttered a fervent prayer.

Many places oft I go
'VVhile listening to my radio.
I hear soft notes from old Japan
I hear a woman, child or man,
Whilst I picture in my mind
People of most every kind.
I may see matadors in Spain
Or lovers in a country land
I sometimes see the Pope in Rome
A royal person on his throne.
A famous athlete playing games,
A politician gaining fame,
Some little mademoiselle in France,
A knight of old with spear and lance,
I see the mountains rising high,
The raging sea-the flaming sky.
I picture flaming youth today,
Tomorrow-sweethearts old and gray.
I vision men both rich and poor
And powerful nations, strong and sure
The man with millions ne'er may know
Vlfhat I dream, or where I go.
There is no region high nor low
I have not been-with my radio.

Proteges of Spring
The little debutante buds
In dresses rainbow-hued,
Colne peeping from the shelteringleaves
Shyly, slyly, all bedewed.
Hyacinth, all-dressed blue-
Her wealth of fragrance, beauty rare,
As protecting leaves unfold.
Jonquil, dressed in merry yellow
Bravely looks around,
And feels so very mighty there,
An inch above the ground.
Thus these little flowerlets
Sweet, dainty frightened things,
For the world, as yet, is new
To such proteges of Spring.

A poem, we were told to write
For Monday, and this is Sunday night
I have tl1e paper, I have the pen,
I have a thought 11ow and theng
But when it comes to write it down
My brow becomes a wrinkly frown.
For I do not seeni to put the thought
In rhyniing lines just as I ought.
I sit and gaze froin out 111y window,
And decide I'll write about the snow-
So soft and sparkling, erinine white
That brightens up tl1e dreary 11ight.
It falls so slowly from above.
How pure these little flakes of love!
But aside from that I must admit
My little candle won't stay litg
I just can't think what else to say
In the supposed-to-be poetic way.
I didn't realize it was so hard
Trying to imitate a. bard.
So please appreciate this attempt
And do not regard it with contenipt.
Your thought must be--I surely li11OlV it!

I Wish I were a Poet,
And could take my pen in hand,
Dash off some pretty verses
That would be in great demand.
Ild startle all my readers,
By my intelligence 5
I'd write of love and living
And other subjects tense.
I'd write about my mother,
My father and sister too,
About my aunt and uncle,
And what other folks do.
I'd love to write of music,
Of forests and of hills,
Of sunshine and of moonlight,
Of heartaches and of thrills.
Eut as I am no poet,
I'll have to be content
To hand in all these verses,
At least with good consent.
And if my teacher fails me,
'Twill be no fault of mine,
For I have tried and tried and tried,
To make these verses rhyme,

Thou hast four full years!

But the years went all too fastg

And meet him at the door.

With the beginning of the second year study of the French language, new and
'various interests were in store for us. Clever songs were sung in French during
class, and poems and anecdotes were recited.
The outstanding event of the French class was the organization of the
French Club under the capable direction of Miss Sylvia Burgun. The meetings
were held semi-monthly in the domestic science room, and were conducted en-
tirely in French with the ordinary club procedure. During the meetings, French
games were played which proved to be quite a novelty to the foreign Americans.
The conclusion was appropriately brought about with the serving of a delicious
luncheon prepared by some of the French Mademoiselles.
Another memorable event was a '4Theater Party" held on February 11,
1931. The attendants were members of the French class, and by the reports a
good time was had by all.

A business education is acquiring the attitudes, the knowledge, the skills.
and the understandings which equip one for complete living. This, in turn, in-
cludes doing well that which business demands.
Villa Maria Academy offe1's a complete commercial course, including
training in Business Office routine. The value of this training, however, will
be determined by the amount of time, energy and effort that the student puts
He who succeeds in the commercial World of today, must be thoroughly
prepared for his work. He must think and act quickly, and must know not alone
what is to be done, but how to do it. Preparedness, therefore, is one of the
essentials which is stressed for the commercial student of the Villa.
Accuracy is the second outstanding asset with which the student should
enter the business world, for the standard of his whole life is greatly raised by
always doing his best even in the smallest things. This thoroughness in work
is also one of the important factors in character building. The employee Who
is accurate and is a faithful worker is sure to succeed as thoroughness always
accompanies other success qualities.
As the future growth and development of our country depends upon the
present progress made in education, special attention is given to securing the
best possible methods in courses taught at Villa Maria Academy. Students com-
plying with the requirements and co-operating with instructors are ready to meet
opportunities for success when confronted with them in the commercial world.

"lt takes two to speak Truth," said Thoreau, "one to speak it and another

more important. To Father Geiger, then, is due a debt We can never repay for
the performance of this duty. For three years he has been our weekly instructor
in ieligion. Active and alert he has done signal service to the cause of religion
by his indefatigible labors. '
May Divine Fiovidence continue to bless him in his work. "May no sol'-
SOW distract his days and no grief disturb his nights." May the sunshine of Grod's
gladness light his Way and may he enjoy a long, happy life-happy in the antici-
pation of eternal life amid the sweet songs and endless joys of Heaven.

Joseph Wehrle to whom the Villa Maria Academy is especially indebted for the

became hilarious over an iinaginary snow fight. Besides these two happy events,
the Juniors closed their social page with the annual banquet to the Senior class.
Here dame fashion reigned supreme. Flower laden tables lent a charniing effect
to the girls dressed in evening gowns of soft sunnner shades. This farewell party
was somewhat clouded with sadness as each one was thinking that happy scnool
days at the Academy were about to end.

The Annual Retreat
On Thursday, February 5, the llev. T. Gilhooley, C. SS. R. opened the
annual retreat for the student body of Villa Maria Academy with a conference
and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
That there is indeed a tendency in our day to speak lightly of God and
of the supernatural cannot be denied. lt was to fight this evil and bring men
to see the Divine plan in all things that prompted His Holiness, Pius Xl to
advocate annual retieats for lay peop'e. ln speaking of lay retreats he says,
"There is no ren1e'y for the sad and evil things which have befallen human
society, unless men will come to recognize their dependence on God and adjust
their lives to His Divine will and guidance. Spiritual retreats foster this return
of men to obedience."
The Villa girls put forth every effort to reap bountifully moral benefits
as the fruit of the labor of their zealous retreat master, and every morning this
vast assemblage approached the altar rail where they received "the Author of
all grace, and the Source of all goodfl

Much could be said in the praise of Miss Edith Meyette under Whose able
management the athletic department had a most successful season. Not un-
common was it to hear the students commend her splendid efforts. In apprecia-
tion of Miss Meyette the nineteen thirty-one graduation class-of Villa Maria
Academy desire to leave with her their best wishes for continued success.
Freshmen Basketball Games
The Freshmen were much interested in basketball this year and as fl
result two class teams were formed. The "Reds" were captained by Mary Cath-
erine McMahon and the "Blues" by Marie Kelley. Games were played every
'Wednesday and the NRL-ids" emerged victors. The games were hotly contested
ones and much credit is due the losers as well as the Winners.
The lineup of the teams follows:
"REDS" "BLUES" V
Ceiger, F. Spiesnian, F.
hfunz, F, il'TOCl1aClGl, F.
Vlleissner, F. Eiswerth, F.
Sipple, C and G. McCormick, F.

Swimming is one of the most popular sports at the Villa and the girls
are indeed lucky in having one of the most beautiful pools in the city as their
At the beginning of the year, Miss Meyette started everyone on the crawl,
the outstanding of all strokes. Step by step it was explained, first breathing,
then the legs, the arms and finally the combining of all three.
Sidestroke, backstroke, breaststroke and diving followed this until the girls
became proficient and well able to take care of themselves in the water.

The Prayer of a Sportsman
Dear Lord, in the battle that goes on through life
I ask but a field that is fair
A chance that is equal with all in the strife
A courage to strive and to dare,
And if I should win let it be by the code
With my faith and my honor held highg
And if I should lose, let me stand by the road
And cheer as the winners go by.
And Lord, may my shouts be ungrudging and clear,
A tribute that comes from the heart,
And let me not cherish a snarl or a sneer
Or play any sniviling part.
Let me say, "There they ride on whom laurels' bestowed
Since they played the game better than I",
Let ine stand with a smile by the side of the road
And cheer as the winners go by.
So grant me to conquer, if conquer I can
By proving my Worth in the frayg
But teach me to lose like a Regular Man
And not like a craven, I pray.
Let me take off my hat to the warriors who strode
To victory splendid and high,
Yes, teach me to stand by the side of the road
And cheer as the winners go by .

Varsity Basketball Games a
Basketball was played on a less extensive scale this yeary Academy, Strong
Vincent Night School and Corry being our opponents of the season. The Academy
girls proved a little too much for us-and took all the games We played with them,
Two games were played with Strong Vincent Night School and we won
both. The score of the first one was 3.5-18. The second played a few weeks
later, resulted in a score of'20-18.
We played Corry High on oiir own court on 'FGb1'11'2L1'Y 21. The visitors
won with a score of 28-10.
On March 14 We played Corry on their own court and after a hard fight,
lost with a score of 31-10. This was the last game of the season and it was a
much harder fought game than the score indicates.

Basketball began late this year but when announcements were made a
large number of candidates flocked to the gym. Practice was started on drib-
bling, passing, juggling, shooting, etc., and a few pick-up games were played.
A number of Freshmen worked hard this year and made the Varsity. We
congratulate them, for this was their first year of basketball and they came here
with no knowledge of it whatsoever. This should leave the Villa well fixed with
material for a few more good teams.
Election of Captain and Manager was held in December. Helen Cunning-
ham was elected captain and Eleanor Ross, manager. At the same time a uni-
form was decided upon, which consisted of the Villa shorts, white sport shirt,
white socks and black and white sneaks.
urday, February 1, we had them as
crowd of girls! They are such good
lost, but we didn't mind a little thing
Everyone was looking forward to our games with Corry and on Sat-
our guests. VVe certainly do enjoy that
sports and so considerate. Of course we
like that, especially when the winners are
On March 14, we Ntravelledl' to Sorry---and did we have fun!!!! Some-
thing doing all the time! The Corry girls again took the game but if I do say
so, we put up a good fight.
The game with Corry ended our season and we settled down to other
And now for a few words about the personnel of our team:
Helen Cunningham-C"Honey"j-Always right there when the ball is.
We don't know what we'd do if Helen didn't jump center. Much of our
success is due to our captain.
Elizabeth Cecho-Oh! for long arms and legs like hers. She literally "picks"
the ball out of the air with her fingers. The Villa should consider itself
lucky for she'll be here another year.
Annabel McCarthy-Annabel hasn't much in the way of arms and legs but
she gets there just the same. l don't know how she does it-but she does,
and she doesn't always get the smallest forward to guard either.
Cecilia Yeager'-VVe would all probably fall over if Celia didn't cripple herself
either before or during a game. She is always ruining some part of her
anatomy, but she did help us a lot this year.
Dolores Munz-One of our Freshie players. She certainly has helped us this
year and ought to do much during her next three years at the Villa. Keep
up the good work, Dolores!
Erskine-If only .lane wouldn't get in "Dutch" she could play all of the
time! Jane played before she came here and was certainly an adder!
asset to our team. She's another who will be here next year.
Burke-Another new player. Nora worked hard this year, her first year
at basketball and she made the Varsity. Too bad she didn't start sooner,
we could have made good use of her.
C. McMahon and Josephine Sipple-Two more of our 'brilliant Freshiesf'
They both played guard and certainly held their positions well. Two
more for next year's team.
C. Peebles-She played forward, and would probably be all right if only
she would stay on her feet.

How one' s thoughts run far and wide
How they vanish like the tide!
Here I sit obeying orders
Thinking of the Villa Boarders.
In 264 there is our Julie,
She's a Soph that we love truly,
Then Marcella, whose love affair
lfVe eouldn't possibly atteinpt to hear,
Virginia loves to study hard,
She shows it by her quarterly eard,
Gingie is always the last to arrive
kVhen due at four, she eonies at five.
Mid. is as tiny as she can be
Her feet are even sinall and wee,
Then therels Graee's eharining srnile,
Her lovely ways and her winsoine wiles,
Margie lives to eolleet poems and skits,
Odes to love and bits of wit,
Mary, 1 think, will soon be wed,
Just now she loves to wash her head,
Genevieve eanxe to us this year,
VVe're certainly glad to have her here.
Jane likes sports, basketball most
The only varsity boarder of which We boast.
'Winnie likes a big man, too,
The favorite of the favored few.
Peggy's "him" is an athlete nian,
So she's an enthusiastic football fan.
Ida likes the niovie stars
She's had enough to fill two ears.
There I've gone frorn door to door
The occupants of tl1e upper floor!
The famous boarders of '31,

The students of Villa Maria Academy believed a real Christnaas included
giving as well as receiving. And proof of this was firinly entrenched iii the hearts
of nearly one hundred of E1-ie's neediest faniilies who were given huge baskets of
food and clothing by the girls of the high school on Thursday, December 18th.
Sixty-five baskets, filled with sufficient food to last a faniily several days,
were packed and distributed by the girls. A large quantity of clothing brought
by the lassies was also distributed.
The high sehool girls held a eharity dance Thursday evening and with
the proceeds ten additional food baskets were obtained. These baskets were not
distributed to the sehool neighborhood alone but 'were taken to various parts ol'
the city and given to the needy.
This saine group of girls, mindful of the good work xvhieh was being ae-
eonrplished by Mulligan llall, eontributed 255.00 for this worthy eause.

The object of this institution is to give to young ladies a refined and
Christian education. Therefore, while every effort is put forth to give the
students excellent training in sciences, inusic and fine arts, those in charge have
it still 1no1'e at heart to impress their students with the fact that it is of far
greater importance, and a niuch more valuable acquisition, to be possessors
of noble Womanly characters, and of charins that coine with virtue only, than to
be endowed with mere intellectual gifts. ,
The Villa Maria students enjoy the best and niost modern educational
facilities. Gannon Hall is a model school building having up-to-date classrooins.
