With reverent consideration we take
as our theme
CITIZENS OF TWO WORLDS
One a world where parents, teachers,
and pastor act as guides: a world in
which books, youthful gayety, and noble
aspirations play an important part.
We realize, however, that our citizen-
ship is also in another world: that we
have been created by God, and that we
are destined for life with God in eter-
nity.' With religion as an integrating
force we hope through prayer, study
and our daily associations to develop:

officers as they serve Father Esterguard and Father Claude
at the Christmas Party. Whether selling Christmas seals

Patrons and Friends
At a time when so many of our graduates are joining the different
branches of the serviceg when the talk of war overshadows that of peace,
our pastor has infused new faith and hope into our hearts by undertaking
the building of the new church and rectory. The Church will ever stand
as a monument to peace.
May Mary, the Queen of Peace bless your efforts, Father Ester-
guard, and bring them to a happy fruition. May our little book, The
Mariadella, which we dedicate to you, recall many pleasant memog:
of your first year at St. Mary.

The Presentation Sisters are deeply interested
in every phase of our school life. Since they have
a special devotion to Mary, the Mother of God,
this year was for them and their students a year
of particular rejoicing. On November l, 1950, the
dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin
was proclaimed. Mary's 'anticipated resurrec-
tion' makes it clear that Nlary now enjoys a happi-
ness which we all hope to attain.

As we leave St. Mary we wish to express
our gratitude 'to the Sisters for their efforts to
implant within us a deep love for God, and an
appreciation of the democratic ideals of our coun-

We are the juniors! We struggle with
chemistry. We try fanciful flights of
figures of speech only to find we mixed
metaphors. We compete in speech
contests. We would be stenographers
so we type for speed and accuracy.
The boys go on field trips. Two go to
Kansas City. A study of history deep-
ens love for our country. Study of the
Church deepens love for God and our
fellow man. Intermingled with the
serious side of school life are mean-

We cheer at games. We get our rings.

Graduation morning we receive our Lord in the Blessed
Eucharist. We pray that "He will penetrate and possess our
whole being." Our mission is not only to enjoy the happiness
of living for God, but to diffuse this happiness and give it to
others. To those who try to serve God, God and country should
be words permeated with meaning.
