To you, our beloved parents, we dedi-
cate this yearbook.
We do this in return for your lile's
dedication to us. For your unrelenting
perserverance and your limitless sacri-
fice, we thank you. For your tireless gen-
erosity and devotion, we love you. But
our love and thanks alone can never re-
place that which you have given us. You
have provided us with more than just the
necessities of life. You have given us the
spititual and material needs which our
souls have craved.
We sincerely thank God for giviritg us
two such wonderful and devoted people
whom we call ..... Mom and Dad.

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-
And Set Them
As A Banner,
That Men May
To Dare The
Wind Of Time,
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.

Music has always been an in-
tegral part of Villa Victoria.
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
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.

Under the capable leadership of
Sr. Mary Ricci, the Mater Puris-

of its most successful years. Vic-
torians have taken time from their
busy schedules to share their ma-

Through daily visits to the chapel,
rosary at the grotto, and individual
sacrifices, they have denied them-
selves materially but enriched
thernselves spiritually: But above
all, Sr. Mary Ricci has taught us
the true meaning of a So-ilalist's

religion. Thus We give our lives to
Jesus through Mary.

Classmates chat and enjoy vi,

afternoon volley ball game. q
Embarking upon a whirling sea
of delightfulness, the seniors ar-
rived at the Prom. This gala event,
the peak of the Villa social activi-
ties, was emphasized bythe elabo-
rate decorations that showed both
planning and imagination, The
theme, ". . .de la mer", fitted into
the bouyant mood of the evening,
Eddie Hatrak's orchestra provided
enchanting dancing music placing
everyone in a world of romance.
From the first martial notes of the
Grand March to the last dreamy
strains of Goodnight Sweetheart,
the prom was a success. As the
seniors slowly danced tothe fading
music, a feeling of nostalgia began
to cover them: for, indeed, this
was their last prom.

going to the Prom. Excitement filled
the air for although this was their
last prom, it was their first one as

To the familiar chorus of
"On the Boardwalk in Atlantic
City", the Seniors left their
Alma Mater for a five day
class trip to stay at the fam-
ous Traymore Hotel in Atlan-
tic City. Indoor swimming,
afternoon sun bathing, horse-
back riding, bicycling, shop-

bined to make these class
holidays full and happy.

2,4 Tribute to all we have lam!
And thousand other throng to me! Royal flamesg
Sweet water's dimpling laugh from tap or springg
Holes in the groundg and voices that do singg
Voices in laughter toog and body's pain,
Soon turned to peaceg and the deep-panting traing
Firm sandsg the dulling edge of foam
That browns and dwindles as the wave goes home 3
And washen stones, gay for an hourg the cold
Graveness of irong moist black earthen moldg
Sleepg and high placesg footprints in the dewg
And new-peeled sticksg and shining pools on grassg -
All these have been my loves. 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.
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.'
