With some hard work and a lot of spirit, the Junior Class has
shown again that those who predicted fine things for us were not
wrong. Not only were our members the backbone of the athletic
teams, but also at least one-third of the class consistently attained
the B average necessary for the Honor Roll.
We did not slack in other school activities either, but actively
participated in the Mission and Tidings drives, various speech con-
tests, and the annual Villanova play. Our contribution to the social
season was the Blue and White Ball.
As the Class ot '60 we shall strive to be the best seniors we
are able. This will be accomplished by continued efforts of service
to the class and to Villanova.

Q s T:
You may ask us what were our first impressions of
Villanova? No freshman can deny the all-powerful, mighty
seniors gave us our first and deepest impressions. The
whip-like commands kept us hopping, and the word
'bow' meant only terror to the hearts of the 'simple
freshmen'. But now liniment has been applied to our
backs and the wounds in our pride have healed, and we
can present an outstanding account of this year.
Athletically we dominated the l.V. football team,
placed men on "B" and "C" basketball, contributed to
track squads, gave strength to the tennis team, and
were the backbone of the l.V. baseball.
We gave a dance in April that can be proudly shown
as an example to freshmen of coming years, and placed
first in the Bishops' Fund with generous donations. lt
freshman was the only student to receive a 4.00 scholas-
tic average for the semester.
Three more years of opportunity lie ahead for us at
Villanova. We only hope our class will continue to make

Democratic processes have their place at Villa-
nova. A student government functions under the
leadership of the Associated Student Body Presi-
dent with the Student Council legislating and
directing student activities.
The past school year has been a successful
one for this government under the guiding hand
of President Joe Meehan and the moderation ol
Father Sullivan. The Council sponsored the Coro-
nation Dance' with hopes that it will become an
annual affair. Pep Rallies, poster contests, and
the direction of Open House Sundays have been
part of their curriculum.
Joseph Meehan has directed the Associated Student Body
affairs and presided at Student Council meeting during the
1958-1959 school year.
A major accomplishment was the long-desired
admission of Villanova into the Santa Barbara-
Ventura lnterschool Council last October.
It has been the constant desire of the Student
Council to create a better atmosphere to engulf
student life through the medium ot notable and
forward-looking student government. The leaders
chosen by Villanova students to guide them
moved ahead in the attainment of better student

Partial control of the school disciplinary system has been given
to the Senior Class through the medium of the Senior Court.
Direct action is taken through vigilantes who issue citations for
violations of either school rules or senior privileges. The cases are
subsequently tried by a court consisting of three iudges, a defense
and a prosecuting attorney. The verdict, usually guilty, is enforced
by the school disciplinarian.
Senior Court has long been a school tradition and was continued
this year as a smooth functioning adjunct of Villanova's disciplin-

A yearbook is a precious object. It enables
students to re-live their high school life. The
staff of the Villanova has strived toward the
production of a yearbook which will graphi-
cally represent this year at Villanova. The
accomplishment of this aim has been the
incentive of every word written, every line
drawn, every picture taken. There is the
intangible sense of inward gratification upon
viewing the results of one's own labors, and
a yearbook is not merely an object of admira-
tion for those directly connected with it, but
for every individual who has been numbered
among the students of Villanova this year.
Along with Father McLaughlin, who as
moderator figured prominently in the publica-
tion of this book, the entire staff ioins in the
hope that we have achieved something truly
representative of each student at Villanova
and of every phase of his school life.

The Sacrifice of Mass, offered by Father Kirk, officially opens the school year. The Grotto, dedicated to
0ur Mother of Good Counsel, was also the site of the Solemn High Mass offered for the repose of the

The Villanova Junior Rifle Club is affiliated with

the best safety with firearms is attained by knowl-

basic principles of rifle use and safety.
A rifle range in a valley behind the football field

manship and strive for the various awards offered
by the N.R.ll. Under the instruction of Father
McLaughlin, many become proficient, attaining the

The Coronation Dance pleased all who attended. Swirling white gowns and dignified black suits were
much in evidence as Villanova initiated this well-supported dance.
Dances are few in number on the Villa-
nova campus. Despite frequent and fer-
vent pleas of the socially minded of the
student body, the number of dances
seem to stay limited to about five dur-
ing the course of the year.
The Seniors opened the social season
with their "Lazy Summer Night" held
in October. Then came the Coronation
Dance in November, sponsored by the
Student Council, which was highlighted
by the coronation of a Queen of Villa-
nova. The Sophomores' Yuletide Dance
followed in December.
April rolled around before the Fresh-
men presented their dance, and then
there is to be the Blue and White Ball
in June at the Oaks Hotel in Oiai. This
is the traditional dance presented in
honor of the Seniors by the Junior Class.
Besides the dances held on campus,
Villanova students are often invited to
participate in the dances sponsored by
St. Catherine's Academy in Ventura and
Marymount High in Santa Barbara.
Christmas brought the Yuletide Dance with sport dress and records the
keynotes of the evening. Through the streamers decorating the dining room

This year's football season opened with the gloomy
memory of last year's winless record, but with the
hope of a marked improvement by a squad of numer-
ous veterans. These proved to be the nucleus of a team
which to some extent achieved the latter expectation
with a season record of 2 wins and 5 losses under
Coach Bob Heller.
Howard Moran, who made a 72 yard touchdown run
at San Luis Obispo and received the L.ll. Times player
of the week nomination after breaking the Villanova
winless streak in the Black-Foxe game, was hurt in the
first offensive play at Santa Barbara and was out for
the remainder of the season.
Diminutive fullback Ruben Montelongo was the of-
fensive-defensive powerhouse throughout the season.
On the line Eddie Chavez, Tom Bralliar, Brent John-
son, Pat Helmholz, Bill Coyle and William Flaherty
were among the outstanding linemen.

garner another winning record and league honors. George is also
noted for his heavy bat as his many triples and home runs testify.

With the season barely underway, the Wildcats are already displaying the same
power which took them to the C.l.F. small school finals last year under Coach Bob
Heller. Capturing first place in the Carpinteria Lions Tournament against larger league
teams is an indication of what can be expected of the Villanova nine.
George Maguire is back to head a veteran squad both on the mound and at the
plate. Larry Condon and George Arnold also are back to fill infield spots. Sophomores
lohn Hill, a promising pitcher, and lim Pendergast take care of the other infield spots.
Larry Meagher will be in the bullpen if needed.
Pat Helmholz and John Bowler cover the outfield positions as they did last year, and
Ruben Montelongo, along with Don Reeder, round out the outfield.
The key spot behind the plate is ably filled by three-year veteran Ed Chavez.

A healthy body makes for a healthy mind so the saying goes. But some of these fellows look as if they
wont have much of a body left once they finish their P.E. exercises which they are doing so rigorously
and faithfully under the direction of Coach lohn Harnett.
Among the trials of life at Villanova is the daily compul-
sory attendance at the physical education class. lt has in-
spired constant practice in the fine art of scheming on the
part of the seniors to escape the rigorous agenda of gruelling
calisthentics and agonizing sports activities. Yet all have sur-
vived to recall the memories depicted on these pages.
lf a sound body is the key to a sound mind, then cer-
tainly a sound excuse was the key to a more enjoyable after-
noon on days that P.E. was scheduled.

MRS. KATHERINE DOWD and MRS. VERONICA MAXIM
The unsung heroes of campus life at Villanova are the
men and women who comprise the kitchen and grounds
staff. Their daily work is taken for granted, and yet how
greatly their absence is felt if an accident or sickness takes
them from their iob. We hope that their remembrance on
these pages will be our way ot showing them our apprecia-
tion and also keep them and the senrices they have per-
formed for us always in our memory.

Interest in the welfare of their sons prompts
mothers of Villanova students to go all out to
obtain funds for various school improvements. This
year under the leadership of Mrs. George Goggin
they inaugurated the Mothers-Sons Luncheon at the
Oiai Valley lnn. A Mardi Gras in February raised
funds to purchase a heater and ventilator for the
Fathers Club Hall, to erect bleachers for the tennis
courts, to paint the recreation hall, to supply addi-
tional chairs for the students' rooms and to pur-
chase dishes and silverware for the Autumn Tea.
Continually behind the scenes guiding and direct-
ing the devoted mothers was the firm hand of
Father Kirk, their moderator.
There is no doubt that these Villanova students are deter-
mined that you can win . . . even in Bingo. This was only
part of the fun which they, and their parents enioyed at
the pre-Lenten Mardi Gras.
Refreshments are in order for Villanova parents during the
Annual Autumn Tea in October when parents are invited
to meet the faculty and discuss their son's future . . . or
Newly elected President Landon Morris lines up the
agenda for the Fathers' Club with the assistance of
Secretary T. I. Lambert and Vice-President Harold
Macumber. Father McGrath, Moderator and Treasurer,
stands by ready to give advice in case of difficulties.
Fathers, proud of their Villanova sons, unite to form
the Fathers' Club. Their outstanding activity during the
year is the sponsoring of the Fathers' and Sons' Banquet
at the end of the first semester. This year it was held
at the Beverly Hills Hotel with Bishop Alden Bell in at-
