ADALBERT KAZINCY, A MAN OF ACTION l At no other time can we pay a more fitting tribute to Rev. Adalbert Kazincy than on this, the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to the holy priesthood. Many years ago, as a young stalwart priest, he was assigned St. Michael's Parish in Brad- dock, Pa., Where a great number of Slovak immigrants had settled. Like St. Vincent de Paul, Father Kazincy realized that his spiritual children needed not only the solicitude of a father but also the love of a mother. V With determination and perseverance his voice echoed across the ocean again and again until finally his call was answered by five Vin- centian Sisters of Charity who came to Saint Michaelfs on November 13, 1902. To this great man of,action belongs the grat- itude of thousands of boys and girls who have grown up under the direction of the Vincen- tian Sisters of Charity. Without his undaunted courage and noble perseverance, there may have never been a "V S C" in U S A. Q66'caz'L'on We, the Senior class of '45, do most gratefully dedicate this book to those who made possible the excellent Catholic education we have received during our years at V H S. To Reverend Adalbert Kazincy through whose efforts our teachers, the Vincentian Sisters of Charity, were given an opportunity to labor for souls in the United States, as Well as to our dear parents to whom we owe an enormous debt of love, fidelity, and gratitude, we dedicate this publication of THE VINCENTIAN. TRIBUTE T0 MOTHER M. EMERENTIANA Foundress of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity Death. canlnever separate those who are bound together by the ties of pure love. A full decade has elapsed since Mother M. Emerentiana had passed away, and yet her spirit lives and moves in the Community which she has established and whose destiny she had guided for thirty-three years. Among the many virtues which graced her holy life, the Sisters love to recall her great piety and devotion to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. It was, no doubt, during these 'sacred com- munes that she learned so well from her Di- vine Spouse how to live holily, suffer valiantly, and die peacefully. Gentle and kind in all her ways, Simple and upright to the end Qfher days. Strong and noble in heart and mind, What a beautwd example she left behind! l GZWEZ We. the graduates of '45. hope' that this year's VINCENTIAN reflects in some small way the thoughts, hopes and aspirations that have played so great a part in our lives. - Four years ago, we were rollicking freshmen starting up the path of knowledge: today, we are graduates, and the lofty ideals which our beloved Alma Mater has taught us are so deeply rooted in our minds that neither time nor age shall ever erase them. Our years here 'have been exceptionally happy onesg however, we cannot deny there had been shadows also. Scarcely had we begun our high school education when, war like an ugly phantom forced itself upon us, bringing with itself new problems, new heartaches, new outlooks on life. For us graduates, the publication of this annual marks the termination of our studies and the commencement of a new life -- for we must now go forth and bravely accept the challenges that a world at war offers us. And, because we realize that, the happiness of our fellowmen, who are worthy of our greatest efforts, now depends to some extent upon us, we pray God that our efforts may be equal to their expectations. ga!!

A 3 I 5 I I ' :cv LINES TO A DEPARTED PRESIDENT By REVEREND TIMOTHY J. MULVEY, o. M. 1. Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt Born: January 30, 1882 Inaugurated: March 3, 1933 Re-elected: 1936, 1940, 1944 Died: April 12, 1945 Dear Mr. President: It is, indeed, strange that we, who never had the privilege of speaking to you face to face in this life, should address you, directly now. For while it is the high intent that a Chief Exec- utive should be intimate with the citi- zenry, it is the unfortunate necessity that he should be removed from the citizens. We are not removed from you, now, Mr. President. When your heart stop- ped beatingg when you relaxed to that level which is the inevitable inheri- tance of pauper and prince, peasant and president-- in that sad and historic moment, you were a child once again, stricken to that helplessness which is the sign of our mutual frailty, and the badge of our common humanity. So, you are dead. But, we can speak to you, now. LINES TO A DEPARTED PRESIDENT We can speak to you, Mr. President, by the three convictions of Faith, Hope, and Charity. By Faith, because it is our belief that your soul, even as the souls of all men, is immortal, by Hope, because it is our common prayer that you have attained that final end for which you, and all men were created: and by Charity, because love is the Law and the Prophets, binding us to you as brother to brother, in life' and in death. Dear Mr. President, it will be no exaggeration to say, now, that few men of this or any other age have realized better than you how turbulent are the tides of this life. It will'be no exaggeration to say that there have been few men of this or any other age, who have been called upon to guide the Ship of State through more perilous waters. It is significant. now, that you loved the sea and ships. We have a strong recollection of you, leaning on a rail, looking out over the waters with the sun and wind in your face. You were a Sailor at heart. Dear Mr. President, it is in the nature of things that man, entrusted with a national responsibility, should be willing not only to attack but to suffer counter-attack in this arena we call political government. For it is both the process and the 'privilege of democracy to agree or disagree. You have been agreed with, heartily. You have been disagreed with, violently. This was not surprising, for a glorious predecessor of yours said, once: "lf I tried to read, much less answer all the criticisms made of me, and all the attacks leveled against me, this office would have to be closed for all other business. I do the very best I know how, the very best I can. I mean to keep on doing this to the very end." That was the way 'Abraham Lincoln expressed it. That was the way you lived it, Mr. President. And you were not afraid. For when the last shot was fired, all America knew in its heart and soul that you had "stuck to your guns" to the very end. You were, also, a Soldier at heart. LINES TO A DEPARTED PRESIDENT Dear Mr. President, and we say this now with the sympathy and affection of friends, the physical space your body required could have been circum- scribed by the dimensions of a single wheel-chair. The flesh was weak. But your heart, Mr. President, was ranging solicitously not only from the Atlantic to the Pacific seaboards, not only from the Halls, of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli, but to every lake and island and hill-- whereverldes- potism raised its ugly head, and wherever the crying of oppressed humanity lifted its voice to ears that wanted to hear. You heard. You were, also a Marine at heart. But. dear Mr. President, this is what we really want to say to you, now that a new twilight is hanging over the Hidson that you so dearly loved, and beside which your spent body is resting for the first time, tonight. They escorted you all the way from Warm Springs, Georgia. The escort is only a casual incident for the page of some future historian. , They allowed you to rest for a few hours in the East Room ofthe White House. This is the remembered detail of a journalist. But, Mr. President, between the coming and going. a monument grew so large and spontaneous in the hearts ofthe 'people as to challenge the best eforts of a grateful posterity. They prayed and sang for you at the way- stations. They wept unashamed all the way North. And above the hoof beats of the white horses, and the rumbling of the caisson that carried you up Pennsylvania Avenue, thousands of men and women called out "God bless him." That is what we to say. "God bless you." For you did speak of God, Mr. President. And you believed in God, Mr. President. And the last magnificent effort of your life was dedicated to the prin- ciple that men - - all men - - should be free and equal under God. This is the precious ideal you left us. We won't forget it. We will work for it. We will'Hght for it. ' But, in the meantime, "God bless you, and keep you eternally, Franklin Delano Roosevelt."

He has been a true guide, ever willing to stretch out a helping hand, ever eager to spur us onward. As director of our Sodality, he has partaken wholeheartedly in our projects and activities and brought us nearer to Mary's throne. As our Raligion teacher, he has spent long hours expounding the great truths of our faith, while as chaplain and confessor, he labored zealously for our sanctification. To us he has become a symbol of kindness, charity, and perseverance. Little wonder then, that we shall never forget our chaplain, who through his unceasing efforts, has so endeared himself to us. A Through the untiring eHorts of our direc- tress, Sister M. Rosalia, the arduous road to successful achievement has been smoother to climb. As each new day begins and ends, we are guided by the gentle thoughts and deeds she affords us. Each week a period is set aside during which time she renders valuable in- structions so necessary in building a sturdy character. Aside from preparing us for the uncertain future, Sister takes pleasure in ac- quainting students with the French language. The pleasant moments we have spent with her shall be cherished as golden memories. GUIDED BY THY RULE No one can deny that liturgical music is as important today as it was during the early days of the Church. Realizing this. Mother M. Gregory has spent long hours with our choir. She has incalculated in our hearts an ardent love of the rhythmical and inspirational Gre- gorian Chant which is the "supreme model for sacred music" and the only ,chant proper to the Roman Church. Her patience, kindness, and endless perseverance have been a constant source of help and encouragement and have enabled us to strive toward vocal accomplish- ment. ' Who can boast of a more noble task? Surc- ly, teaching the human heart to participate joyfully in music, to appreciate it in all its beauty, to find peace, contentment, and hap- piness in its sweet, flowing melodies is one of the greatest tasks a teacher can desire. Because Mother M. Gregory has done this and so much more, she has deserved and won our sincere gratitude. With the dexterity of Spitalny and the patience of Beecham, Sister M. Martina, mis- tress of our diminutive orchestra, labors un- tiringly over notes, melodies and tones at the V H S. Her aim is perfection in instrumental music. We also meet her every morning- at High Mass, where she fittingly accompanied our Kyries and Agnus Deis with her magic touch on the organ. Sister M. Martina has our deepest appreciation for her constant help and guidance.

He is our Source of strength when the going is rough: consolation when the soul tires of plodding! ever onward. The Divine Teacher has much to tell, and we have much to learn.

Under the protective mantle of Mother Mary, we invoke her aid to help us keep pure and holy, that we may truly be worthy of the title "Children of Mary." The following is a brief sum- mary of our activities during this past year: ' October: The initial Sodality meeting of the year '44 - '45 was held oh October I, 1944. Under the guidance of our moderator, Sister M. Leonard, the student body elected officers for the coming year. Cecilia Klein, president: Olga Talda, vice president: Veronica Turocy, treasurerg and Theresa Sziich, secretary. l November.' i Marian Action - - Sodalists made plans to send copies of "Knight of Our Lady" booklet by Father Lawrence Lovasik, S. VQ D., to friends and relatives in the armed services. . December: Monthly reading 'and explanation cf character building was con- ducted by Sister M. Leonard, for the benefit of each sodalist. January: Students set aside oneday each week on which they will pray for their adopted missionaries. Newcomers were introduced to this practice and todk missionaries in far away Brazil under their wing: ' . February: Catholic Press Month. All out drive to propagate the faith through Catholic books and periodicals. Practice of the Daily Six during the season of Lent. 7 March: Special prayer for the month: "In behalf of the Prisoners of i War. is' Question box answered by Father Thomas, our director. April: Sodalists elected May Queen from the senior group. Cecilia Klein, our prefect, was the honored one. May: ' Oflicers for the coming year were elected from the junior class. The Sodality pays tribute to Mary, Mother of God, at close of annual retreat. Prefect Cecilia Klein bestowed upon Our Lady a crown of blossoms. June: Sodality activities terminated for the year with the installation of the new officers. cfm ce . . . GENERAL SCIENCE PLAYS AN IMPORTANT PART IN EVERY STUDENT'S CURRICULUM These young scientists have learned to look forward to their general science classes with no small amount of enthusiasm. As the picture clearly indicates, these classes have become not mere- ly a source of fact, but rather a well spring of true knowledge, pleasure, and enjoyment. CHEMISTRY EXPERIMENTS- THIS IS HOW GREAT CHEMISTS ARE BORN. Chemistry spells experimentation in any student's language, and these are certainly no exception. Here we find them eagerly probing its depths for some additional information. UBUGSOLOGYH CLASS PROBES MYSTERIES IN BIOLOGY Bugs! Bugs! and more of these creepy little di- minutives These students are learning that "It's a Buggy World." "Nature certainly is marvelous!" These and similar remarks may be heard from students after an interesting class in biology. TRIANGLES, CIRCLES, ANGLES Just a few Geometric terms, but there are a great deal more . . Propositions, axioms, scalene triangles. and straight angles, all pleasantly meaning- ful to the industrious student. eamin . . . With grim determination, the seniors strive to achieve their goal in typing. In shorthand, it's the little things that count. Because the new dawn can come only after the War's termination, the students have so dedicated themselves that nothing short of untiring efforts to help hasten that day shall be their goal. Each week they fall in line to buy their war stamps, but their contributions do not end here. They have given generously to the Red Cross, packed boxes for children of war-torn lands, excelled in the Community Fund Drive, collected tin and waste paper, knitted for our armed forces, and elven put their hearts and souls into victory gardening. They are "all out' for victory and do not in- tend to stop for one minute. Surely, the New Dawn is worth waiting and working for. WORKING TOWARD THE NEW DAWN The seven sagacious seniors at the left are examining certificates which they received from the Business Education World for their entries in a recent bookkeeping contest.

Indeed, she has become for us a gentle, ethereal star that brightens up each darkened night and guides us safely onward. Truly, what better beacon light need sustain us as we journey o'er life's trouble- some path? . THEE, WE HAIL! FAREWELL TO MY ALMA MATER I like the crooked trees and the sad way they look at me When the deep frosts touch the bareground - - I love them when they wear spring's first offering, Oh Lord, I am glad I found - - This haven of peace and of rest, Where the soul of man is lost in the world's emptiness. And refound again like a long lost child In the power, the will, and the courage of the mild. I shall hate to leave: I would like to take, Some portion of this hallowed earth with me, Perhaps - - that exact spot where my soul found itself in God... Someday hence, you may choose to ask - - "Are you sorry you left, wouldn't you like to go hack? And suddenly like a huge golden ray of light, Memories will assault my mind. And an answer for your question I shall find - - It shall be - - Yesl. A Gr "The Vincentian's" Busy Bees aduate MEAL TIME IS A HAPPY TIME V A cheerful refectorv, well-prepared food. friends, and a thousand happy incidents to relate - what more is needed to make meal time the most pleasant time of the day? Wholesome. tantalizing meals have a way of winning a hun- gry sIudent's herrt. Is it any wonder then, that at exactly five minutes before meal time, neat, smiling waitresses hurry to the refectorv for the vita- min filled plnters that supply our daily energy? The-ir's is a pleasant and enviable task which makes them a favorite with every one in the group.

Just as are the young, fleet- footed lassies who have designs on those succulent apples.
