t e Scutta cnifrt i?959 'Pteaented dy t£e Senior (££044. HIGH SCHOOL CONSHOHOCKEN, PENNSYLVANIA4 d m i n is t rat mi and Faculty I ClassesrZeack us O Cord for all Christ, the Source of all our knowledge, is our Teacher. This great, big, wonderful world of "ours" is His world. It was first conceived in His divine Mind. To study His world without studying Him who created it is to ignore the whole meaning of the universe. As we grope our way forward day by day, learning more and more of the wonders of the world around us, probing its atoms, searching its skies for more wonders, our Guide should be—must be—the Christ who would have us know why it all exists. In the measure that our lives as they are lived from day to day become like His—never reaching the Perfection that is uniquely His own but always patterned after it— we approach our goal ... a life on earth lived as Christ would have lived it! A good life, a happy life, and at its end an eternal life filled with those things that only a Christ can provide. Zhy ways others lead to destruction;Dedication We dedicate our book to those by whom we have been taught-. TO OUR PARENTS—to Mother and Dad who from the beginning of our lives have counseled us to do always what is good. We are your children, grateful beyond measure. May every accomplishment of our lives bring the light of pride and admiration to your eyes and add to the store of fond memories in your hearts. TO OUR SPIRITUAL GUIDES—to those whom God has chosen to direct us in the Church. Guided by the Spirit of Wisdom and of Truth, you have delivered us from the hollowness of an "education" that bends the spirit to an abject adoration of the material and deludes the mind with its idiotic fascination for quantity. You have guided our steps onto the path that leads to God. May we never abandon it. TO OUR TEACHERS IN THE CLASSROOM—who have taught us that the world is our textbook and that its every lesson is a restatement of the one great lesson; namely, that God is the Author of our book and that the purpose and utility of any book is to raise to the level of the author the spirit of him who reads. May we always earn high honors in this first of the three R's.HIS HOLINESS POPE JOHN XXIII May we ... O Lord, be gladdened by the wonderful grace of Thy majesty in granting us a pontiff who shall instruct Thy people by his virtues and fill the souls of the faithful with supernatural fragrance. Postcommunion of the Mass for the election of a Pope.The students of St. Matthew's High School join with our principal. Father Walter Laut, and the Faculty in offering our sincere and most cordial congratulations to our beloved "Archbishop O'Hara" on his elevation to the dignity of the cardinalate by His Holiness, Pope John XXIII. May God give him graces in superabundance to fulfill the duties of his exalted office. ... faithful to theTHE MOST REVEREND J. CARROLL McCORMICK, D.D.

GRAHAM THE REVEREND FREDERICK J. STEVENSON Assistant Superintendent of Schools Assistant Superintendent of Schoolsin Mis Marne REVEREND WALTER LAUT, our principal, whose enlightened leadership and unselfish dedication to duty are synonymous with the progress and lofty standards of St. Matthew s High School. An artist catches some snatch of the beauty of nature by looking again and again at the subject he is intent to depict, to the end that he will not omit one detail of the perfection of God's mosaic of splendor. We, too, are artists who claim to copy the pattern of our Master who exhorts us to "Learn of Me." If we are faithful to this practice, then duty demands that we envision our Divine Model and Exemplar so that we reproduce on the canvas of our character all the virtues that will form us into the image and likeness of Christ. Goodness is so wonderfully contagious, and why are we not blessed more deeply with so holy an epidemic wherein saints are infected with the germ of good—for self, for society, and for the Kingdom of God? God grant that we learn the lesson of faith wherein we can sacrifice by self-abnegation; hope wherein we can walk in a pathway illuminated by confidence in God's grace; and love that is chastened by learning of Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Though we approach the goal in varying degrees—for the whole span can be encompassed by no one—each, according to his ability and application, finds enjoyment in the fascinating process and fulfillment in his accomplishments. 21Bernard irte Narwicz answers Father Schuster's question concerning the forms of worship studied in Religion III. 22 Father Schnorr discusses the "proofs of Divine Revelation" In his Religion class.RELIGION In the symphony of our student-life here at St. Matthew's the spirit of Christ runs like a dominant theme. Religion is our major subject; yet it is not a subject but a leavening ingredient permeating everything we do "until the whole is leavened." Mr. Dugan questions Mary Maher on the decrees of the Council of Trent. Do the faces of the.Sophomores show interest, apprehension, or sympathy? Father Dziadosz hears James Tomarelli's confession. Confessions are heard every morning at St. Matthew's.ENGLISH Clear and forceful expression conforms to the structure of English grammar. Through language we share knowledge that is our birthright. When, at last, we feel at home in our own language we begin to acquire a facility in self-expression and a refinement of taste which develop in us an artistic sense and a genuine appreciation of great literature—"passionate and noble deeds to their own music chanted." Sister Helen Regina explains the correct use of pronouns to Edward Hanger whom she has asked to explain the correct use of pronouns.From the expressions on the faces of Sister Marie Dorothy and Francis O'Donnell, Eileen Gallagher's explanation of verbals must be unique. Bernard Johnson emcees a forum of seventeenth century writers in Literature III class. Andrea Dippolito is searching happily in the library for one of the books required in her English class. SCIENCE Rosalie Kusso, Stanley Kobus, Roberta Duda, Patrick Tweedy, and Joseph Puzyn experiment with Tesla coil, constructed by a student of last year's class. In our science labs Chemistry students cook up some weird concoctions in performing their experiments. We can rarely guess what they are making but we know it isn't "Evening in Paris." Potential engineers learn the fundamental principles of such physical phenomena as light, heat, sound, force, and electricity. Biologists explore the ever fascinating mystery of life from its simplest form in microscopic creatures to God's masterpiece of earthly creation- man.s4fo t4- 'SciK4 t Kathleen Mullen, Carolyn Birch, Kathleen Urban, Irwin Westerfer, and James Farrell feed the hampster which has the life of "Rile ' in their Biology class. Physics students, Richard Sullivan, John Costa, Thomas Fabiani, Patricia Stroud, Richard DiCiurcio, Constance Koldys, William McMahon, and Mary O'Donnell perform various experiments in static electricity. Carolyn Cassel watches the condensation of water vapor in ihe distillation of water, an experiment in Sister John Baptist's General Science class.Mr. Zajac explains bask method of working any percentage problem. Mathematical training provides us with the mental equipment we must bring not only to the experimental method used in other sciences, but also to the intelligent analysis and solution of the practical problems of every day. Our curriculum offers us courses in business arithmetic, algebra, plane and solid geometry, and trigonometry. And should a student's yen for exploring the rarer atmosphere of math not be satisfied, Sister Rita Aloysia, advisor of our Math Club will take him aloft but we urgently suggest a space suit. Joseph Puzyn and Rosalie Russo solve a problem in Trig.With Sister Rita Aloysia's explanations even algebra becomes easy. John Ounswor h demonstrates to students of solid geometry that planes perpendicular to a given plane are not necessarily parallel. William Pohle attempts to prove that tangents to a circle from a single external point are equal. MATHEMATICS 29SOCIAL SCIENCES "Old events have modern meanings . . . " Against the backdrop of history many of our current problems prove to be old ones in modern dress. And in attempting to evaluate them if not, indeed, to solve them, we begin to understand the forces that influence men's actions and how these same forces affect our own lives. Thus we prepare for intelligent participation in the affairs of mature citizenry. Joseph Farrell and Mary Jo Staniszewski salute the flag. Mr. Brannau discusses corporations and monopolies in National Problems class.A pause to clarify an important point catches Sister Helen Regina's American History class—but not unaware! Freshmen in Sister Maxima's Guidance class discuss the qualities proper to teachers and students. Edwin Steer's views are thoughtfully considered by Henry Wright, Ann Tole, Joyce Sobofka, and James Pultorak, chairman of the discussion. Sister Rose Immac-ulee's Junior class prepare to become true American observers, enlightened citizens of the future.Maryellen Gibson's illustration of indirect dis- Sister Praxedes explains subjunctive mood to Gerald Hamaday in Latin I class, course looks interesting to us but what is aDsorb-ing the interest of the boys in the Latin III class? Through the study of language we develop an insight into the lives and problems of other people; we acquire a means of communicating with them, of understanding their standards of values, and of enriching our own lives through the broadening of our mental and cultural horizons. Our classical studies enable us to behold "the glory that was Greece and the splendor that was Rome" and sharpen our view of modern life against the backdrop of ancient culture. French I students go shopping "en fran ais." David Cronin and David Cavanaugh discuss the merits of guns "pour la chasse" while Alice Rakowski discusses the purchase of a "sac a main" with Joan Regan.Orthographic changing verbs aren't quite so confusing as they appear from the looks of these Spanish II students. Lorraine Bakula flashes the troublesome verb "averiguar" as Theresa Terlowska awaits her turn to challenge the students with the next one. LANGUAGES CLASSICAL AND MODERN Sister Sharon's Spanish I class hearing recordings "en Espanol.'BUSINESS Business is busyness for our commercial students who work earnestly with an eye to a career in the modern world of wholesale and retail commodity selling, credit and exchange, banking, investment, and—let's face it courageously—taxes. 34 What has Joan Deuber dictated to Gloria Camaioni that is so amusing to Patricia Marks and Margaret Costello?Dolores Duff's explanation of adjusting entries has caught the interest of the class. These future secretaries have learned to concentrate on their transcriptions. Office Practice will make Patricia Bums, Rosemarie Denno, and Carol Deger feel at ease in any office.In a comprehensive series of courses, our Home Economic students are taught the benefits of good nutrition and how to obtain it; good grooming, both mental and physical; good manners and their relationship to personality; in fact, all those qualities and social values which prepare them for well integrated and happy Christian social and family living. The Senior girls survey their work es Sr. Maxima notes the delicate touches that make table placement an art. From left to right the girls have arranged tables for a buffet, tea, luncheon, breakfast, and formal dinner. 36Interest is seldom diverted as these Sophomores solve the problems of family living. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________37 Seniors model clothing they have made. Left to right: Roberta Duda, Claire Schwab, Jeanette Santoni, Mary Kay Dalgliesh, Barbara Kriebel, Patricia Stroud, Rosemary Cronin. HOME ECONOMICS The girls choose the library as an informal setting to display their fashions.John Lambert, Nancy Westerfer, and John Welsh perform their assignments in Clerical Studies. TECHNICAL SCIENCES Technical sciences train students' thought and judgment in connection with actual life situations. They provide experience not only in the use of things, but also in the use of ideas to solve the practical problems of everyday living. Students use our library facilities to find answers to questions provoked by class discussions, to investigate subjects, gather data, check references, or to ponder over "many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore."John Bielawski, the doctor, assisted by his nurse, Carolyn Coscia, bandages Mary Ann Bersaglia's finger using his best chairside manner. Joseph Vishio and Joseph Oscar, future draftsmen perhaps, discuss a problem in Mechanical Drawing.SPORTS Pardon us while we adjust our halos. We've been canonized this year. And what with our new name, "Saints," well, you understand . . . "noblesse oblige." If we seem a little puffed up it's because we are walking on the clouds. And though we've had to bite the stardust now and then, we've had a good season whose biggest measure of success was in the fields of sportsmanship, loyalty, and school spirit. 41, PA., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4. 1958.

Skip Higgins and Joe Bocutti Tony MooreFORENSICS CLUBS MIRROR AIDES SAMASCRIPTACTIVITIES Sensitive as a mother to a baby's cry are we to the almost inaudible click that precedes Father Laut's "Announcements" at the end of eighth period. Melodines, amateur golf, landscape gardening, science fair, dance committees, detention, (for even that's an activity extracurricular) Red Cross, poster contest, play practice,... the list is long and the time so very short... we marvel that we can pack so much fun and valuable experience into our after-school days. These are not the basic fare of our education but they add piquancy and flavor. Learning would be savorless indeed without them.Senior debaters go into action in preparation for the Philadelphia finals. John Hamaday and Joseph Bielecki hold a cross-questioning session. John Costa and Gennaro Cia-varelli listen, ready to give a critique when the questioning period is over. Charlotte McCarron and Mary Beth Ferenchak with two visiting orators pore over their notes before the Original Oratory Tournament. Novice debaters search for evidence. Standing: Anthony Zinni and James Pultorak.

It is affiliated with the National Catholic Forensic League and participates in all its activities. Over the years the society has prepared debaters now active in local and distant colleges. Our orators and debaters with admirable determination and enthusiasm have maintained a high standing in the league and have won as a matter of course, the coveted invitation to national competition every year. This requires a ranking among the top five competitors. IMI Graduating Kinahans, John Costa, Ronald Galarus, Maryellen Gibson, and Gennaro Ciavarelli, hope to see Washington for-ensic action in the National Finals. Interested moderators talk "shop" as they await results after the third round in St. Matthew's Original Oratory Tournament.CLUBS 'But Mother, this is a very important meeting." Believe it or not, some students are not satisfied with the usual five hour schedule. These scholars have organized into clubs which, in some cases, remind us of the discussion groups of the "enlightenment." All work and no play, they say, makes Jack dull. But if that is so, our club members must have lots of fun. They're anything but dull boys and girls. Mr. Angrabe illustrates graphically for members of his Logic Club the fundamental principle of the learning process. Patrick Tweedy discusses with members of the Math Club a figure having one surface —the Moebi-us strip.At a meeting of the Biology Club under the direction of Sister Euphrosine, Irvin Westerfer exhibits a flare which seems to frighten the other members. Felicia Jemionek and Anita Bobenrieth are pleased with Carol Rosenberry's choice of a French record. Daniel O'Brien explains to Gerald Levinski how crystals have formed inside bottle. James Pieklo and Wayne Mattson examine crystals they have made under bioscope. Sister John Baptist is moderator of the Chemistry Club. 65MIRROR The Mirror, our school paper, is issued quarterly under the direction and supervision of Sister Helen Regina. As its name implies, the Mirror is a reflection of the atmosphere of St. Matt's and the attitudes and ideals of our students. Mirror reporter, Marie Costello, interviews St. Matt's Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow, Roberta Duda, for a current article in the Mirror. Mr. Ronald Angrabe, our new history teacher, discusses with Priscilla Kobus-zewska, reporter, his early impressions of St. Matt's . . . Post Scriptum—They're very favorable. 66Patricia Zollo and Patricia Higgins peer through milady's "Mirror."

It was hard and exacting work but we learned many lessons not the least of which were patience and perseverance. And we'll always remember the fun we had in "Publications." JOSEPH BARNYOCK RAYMOND CARR ROBERT DIRICO As always, the students seem quite impressed with the new edition of Samascript." ... I BRING YOU GOOD NEWS OF GREAT JOY Christmas is not just a word to the students of St. Matthew's, who have proved with their beautiful rendition of carols and hymns that thoughts at Christmas are turned to Christ. During the hectic rehearsals under the expert instruction of Sr. Marie Dorothy, a real happiness and enthusiasm was evident. As the individual songs began to take shape, they rekindled the joy and love that warms our hearts at Christmas time. The program included the gay traditional songs and favorite hymns of the season As the curtain parted on the tableau, we were reminded once more of the serenity and holiness of the first Christmas night. We know by the reaction of the student body that is conveyed the fact that the spirit of the Nativity still lives. And the final reward of weeks and months of hard work was the knowledge of having given a gift to Christ on His birthday. The Seniors and Juniors put us in the Christmas mood by taking us for a "Sleigh Ride.'From the Beginning . . . There was nothing but noise and confusion as our orchestra began to take shape . . .

Our school was forming an orchestra. Students looked forward to pleasant hours listening to fine music played by their very own classmates. We remember our disappointment at the first harsh squeaks and scratchings, but gradually we began to recognize the sounds as music. And when our full-fledged orchestra made its debut shortly before Christmas, we realized that another of St. Matthew's "firsts" was an achievement of excellence. . to the End Now there is nothing but satisfaction and appreciation as we enjoy the finished product. . . . under the expert direction of Mr. Rossi, tone . . .

Tommy wants to be reassured of Winnie's love when they meet at a party in Annie's honor. ANNIE GET YOUR GUN Annie Oakley, an uneducated and uncultured backwoods girl finds herself quite in demand when Charlie Davenport, manager of the Wild West Show, discovers her extraordinary ability at sharpshooting. Charlie is quite taken by Annie's shooting ways but Frank Butler, the star of the show, considers her a dangerous rival. Annie has almost won her way into first billing at the show and consequently out of Frank Butler's heart when Sitting Bull suggests a familiar feminine ruse—Annie suddenly loses her skill and wins Frank Butler. Annie Oakley (Pat Gallagher) is initiated into the Sioux tribe by Chief Sitting Bull (Francis O'Connor).Annie gets her kid brother (Dennis O'Brien) and sisters (Carmel Di-Grazio and Antoinette Marino) ready for their first public appearance. Sitting Bull (Francis O'Connor) reads a letter from Frank Butler to Annie (Pat Gallagher) who can't read but is a very smart girl. Annie explains to Sitting Bull that Frank Butler is the star of the show. Cathy Bengen as Annie Oakley 81Mr. Wilson (James Straine) explains to Dolly (Marlene Stuchinski) that the troupe cannot stay at his hotel. Members of the cast also qualify as make-up artists.

In the absence of Father York, Father Kline coaches Frank Aptacy and Muriel Clark as the stage crew and some of the cast look on.The bulletin board kept students posted on their standing in the race for patrons. Those behind the scenes worked just as hard as those out in lights to make the play a success. Joseph Bor-kowski, Lawrence Nolan, Walter Rykowski, and Thomas Kane don't look as if they mind the hard work. Carmel DiGrazio could easily be mistaken “for a little backwoods girl when Father York was finished making her up. The happy faces of the cast spell success as they take their final bows and receive congratulations from Father Laut. 83SAINT Joseph Barnyock, President of the Senior Class. JUNIOR REPRESENTATIVES: Joseph Bielecki, Marie Costello, David Fondots, Jacqueline Dougherty, George Lochetto, Rita Pergine, Robert Schulze, and Theresa Tarlowska. MATTHEW’S FINEST The qualities that make for good citizenship, participation in social and civic affairs on a high level, and enlightened leadership are fostered in our students. Our representatives are chosen in open, popular election. Others, because of scholastic achievement, extraordinary school spirit, or performance of merit deserve special acclaim. We are sorry we cannot include them all. First honor students have a right to be happy—and proud. Mary O'Byrne accepts prize (we had hoped that file box wouldn't look like one) tor soliciting greatest number of patrons for Samascript. Maryellen Gibson came in close second. 84__________________________________________________ REPRESENTATIVES: Sophomore (standing) Benjamin Erwin, Frances Costello, John Jampo, Dolores Drzmalski, John Kilgallon, Kathleen Mullen, Anthony Zinni, Patricia Zimmerman.

It is a triduum of recollection, pcayer, and spiritual refreshment. Our retreat master this year was Rt. Rev. Msgr. Thomas J. Rilley, Director of Catholic Charities in Philadelphia. His friendliness and understanding attracted us immediately. The time between Monsignor's conferences was devoted to spiritual reading, visits to the Blessed Sacrament, and praying the rosary. We are grateful for this opportunity of growing in God's grace.

Our guests, Sister Mary Raphael, S.C.M.M.; Mrs. John B. Kelly, mother of Princess Grace; Miss Marie Collins, Eastern Director of Red Cross; and Mrs. Helen Sigel Wilson, championship golfer charmed and delighted us.

Music in the finest tradition.GRADUATION Freedom, relaxation, sweet independence— these are the things we had so often dreamed of during our four years of high school. At long last the great day came. On June 7, 1959 we donned our academic gowns and mortarboards to receive in traditional baccalaureate solemnity the coveted diploma—the Magna Carta of our liberties. But, like most dreams-come-true, ours was a little short of our expectations. Or is it a sign of unalloyed satisfaction when a casual "see you again" sticks like a lump in your throat and you wish you were a three-year-old again because graduates aren't supposed to break down and bawl no matter how happy they feel?SENIOR OFFICERS JOSEPH PAUL BARNYOCK President ROBERT JAMES DIRICO Vice-President 92 PATRICIA ANN GALLAGHER Secretary MARYANNE BLANCHE JELESIEWICZ TreasurerSENIOR REPRESENTATIVES PATRICIA JEAN KNAECKE JOHN FRANCIS HILL EDNA AGNES WARD JOSEPH FRANCIS VISHIO MARYELLEN FRANCES GIBSONOFFICERS AND REPRESENTATIVES JOSEPH P.
