"G A 11 v-. , "FZ, -X C f's,0 We, the Graduates of 1957, find no words to express our sentiments and our thankfulness to such a won- derful person as the founder of our own Villa Victoria Academy. To the Most Reverend Thomas Joseph Walsh, S,T.D., .l.C.D., late Arch- bishop of Newark, we are indeed grateful. Because ofhis wholeheart- ed obedience to Our Lord's word, we are well on the road to eternal gratefulness and a new road of life. Through his unceasing workfor bet- ter and bigger schools throughout his archdiocese, he has provedhim- self a staunch advocate of education and a syrnpathetic friend to youth. Although he is not here to see his work fulfilled, to an even greater degree his memory will live on forever in the minds of every Vic- torian. And Set Them As A Banner, That Men May Know To Dare The Generations Burn, And Blow... ....On The Wind Of Time, Shining And Streaming For many years, Bishop Ahr has been the spiritual director of the Trenton diocese. His good works and kind deeds increase each year as do the honor and glory which he deserves. His love for mankind extends from the darkest corner of the earth where he earnestly helps the missions, to our bright and prosperous di- ocese where he builds schools and helps his own children, Villa Victoria has long enjoyed his fatherly interest. His inspiring talks have aided us in finding our true vocations in life. His constant presence and enthusiasm in Villa's activities will always be remembered by the Senior Class. We thank him and pray that his every desire be fulfilled. I 0 V i V i' i . L ' i vi' N A . s P' 2 CG . i 9- 2 ev f n F- ! a s e i m Ji: 3. v f ?

Through the years our choir, under the direction of Sister Elizabeth Pa rente, has won nationwide renown. This year was no exception. Besides the annual concert in New Bruns- wick and the annual Christmas tel- evision show over WATV, Channel 13, Villa added to her fame by cutting a record with RCA Victor. Selections included on the recording were Cole Porter'S "ln the Still of the Night", DiCapua'S "Sunrise", and Lecuona's "Malaguena" Car- mela Bucceri and Al Liberace,.an upcoming vocalist from New York, were feature soloists. Our Annual Musicale, given at the War Memorial Building in May, was again a rewarding achievement. This year's program included a Broadway Medley, Ketelbey's "ln a Monastery Garden". Verdi's all Trovatore", and Tschaikowsky's "Sleeping Beauty". A woman of unlimited talents, Sister Elizabeth Pzirente looks over a contract sent by Schirnier Music Com- pany of New Yorii, which has published two of her original piano compositions. Sister Elizabeth holds similar contracts with the Willis Music Company of Ohio, and the Mc Loughlin gl Reilly Music Coni- pany of Boston. We gained much pleasure, ex- perience and fame this year, all credit being due to Sister Elizabeth Parenteg for without her there would be no Villa choir.

And these shall pass, Whatever passes not, in the great hour, Nor all my passion, all my prayers, have power To hold them with me through the gate of Death. They'll play deserter, turn with the traitor breath, Break the high bond we made, and sell Love's trust And sacremental covenant to the dust. - Oh, never a doubt but, somewhere, I shall wake, And give what's left of love again, and make New friends, now strangers. . . But the best I've known, Stays here, and changes, breaks, grows old, is blown About the winds of the world, and fades from brains Oi living men and dies. Nothing remains. O dear my loves, 0 faithless, once again This one last gift I give: that after men Shall know, and later lovers, far removed, Praise you, "All these were lovely"g say, 'He 1oved.'
