NEST OF NEWS
Snuggled tightly into a corner, as
a child tucks his most precious treas-
ure, is the humble Phoenix Nest.
Beyond its Wooden frame, painted
brown and flamingo, lies the intricate
fascination of pinning and pasting
dummies, typing copy, proof-reading
gallies, cropping pictures, assigning
and reassigning stories and counting
out headlines to perfection.
With a pencil, scissors, and paste
jar in one hand, and cake and coke
in the other, the editors meet their
deadlines. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with
overtime on Sunday, the staff, under
the direction of Sister Mary Sharon,
Phoenix staff advisor, laugh and toil
through eight editions of the paper
the Phoenix Alumni, and the yearbook

"the pictures are good."

Deeply engrossed in her art work for the Phoenix
publications, Lolita Armendariz adds finishing touches
to her latest sketch,
"Double double, toil and trouble," sounds the hub-
bub that fills the sewing room at the Sunday session
of the Phoenix staff. Clicking typewriters, pens and
pencils, plus plenty of inspiration are the required as-
sets of the meeting.

Dolphin, Marie Beckman, Sara Conway, Ronald Sear-
paci, Gail Valenti, Anne Triptow, Pat Farnum, Year-
