The Annual Publication
VINCENTIAN HIGH SCHOOL
REV. 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.
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.
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
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!
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.

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
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
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."

Sister M. Rosalia, Principal
Father Thomas' zeal on our behalf can hard-
ly be summed up in one statement. 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-
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
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

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

SO DALITY ACTIVITIES
The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary has for its primary purpose the
personal sanctification of each member's soul through the advancement of
devotion to our heavenly Mother. 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

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.
THIS IS HOW GREAT CHEMISTS
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.
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.
Though the class is rather small, we have al-
ready taken note of their accomplishments.
All year long, they have given us proof of
their progress and interest. Truly, they are
tomorrow's business women in the making.

Each member of the orchestra has acquired
the subtle art of coaxing music out of her in-
strument by practice. Yes, in our V H S or-

able direction of Sister M. Martina, we pro-
duce either a Chinese Temple overture or a
Sousa march. A

As pure as the immaculate clouds that fill the azure sky, our Blessed
Lady lovingly spreads her protecting mantle and outstretched hands over
our school and campus. 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
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 - -
"The Vincentian's" Busy Bees
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.
HONORABLE MENTION FOR, FRONT LINE WAITRESSES
See that happy grin on Flo, our plaid shirted harvester? She and the
other girls are all set for fun on a hay ride. Just as are the young, fleet-
footed lassies who have designs on those succulent apples. Others seem to
prefer water, while two young ladies are out for gymnastics.
TIME FOR PLAY
Do you like to rocket into the sun? Perhaps then, you would prefer a ride on one .of the
swings. If this does not appeal to you, then the pleasures of a hike are all yours. And, if
you like nature, fun and stuff - - then you are left to your own choice.
GET THAT BALL!
A cry that arnuses any amateur athlete to immediate action. Eager hands
reach for the speedy little hall of rubber. A miss? Too had! But, you did
have fun trying, didn't you? That is what counts most in any game. "Come
on, let's try again."
WE JUST CAN'T HELP SINGING AND DANCING
Will you waltz? Or perhaps cut arug? Mayhe you would prefer just
sitting a few out, and singing or humming the strains of a popular ballad.
Whatever you do, you will discover a happy mixture.
