SENIOR MEMORIES The San Diego College for Women, founded and sustained on a tradition of ex­ cellence and integrity in education, beholds the timeless, mystic tradition of the sea. Spanish Renaissance windows frame the vast spectrum of the water's blue: brilliant concerts of blue-green, subtle gray-brushed tones, periodic turquoise hues. . . The vital renewing movement of the changeless sea. . attended by the precise architecture of classi­ cal Europe . . and witnessed by a generation of the time. Currency — immediate, ani­ mated, intense — within the shadows of an abiding culture. Traditions — strong, clear, decided. Traditions continuing as the metaphor and framework of vital growth . . as they were four years ago for a new group of freshman girls . . and as cumulative meaning for a graduating senior class of young women. The patterns of the sea are endlessly varied . . complex and simple . . with aspects spanning the sublime and the ordinary . . the eternal and the transient . . the memorable and the forgotten. . . And so our college years . . a pattern of four years . . varied and complex in ac­ tivities, events and experiences . . and yet, with the simplicity of one in faith, tradition and purpose . . and above all the unique growth of each and all: Individuals . . of the quiet gifts: their warm smiles lending serenity to those days that were always crowded, often hectic and sometimes unhappy . . of dedication: the devotion of those who expended time, effort and talent in the million necessary tasks in the smooth operation of student-body and class affairs . . of laughter: the indispen­ sable characters, rich in humor, who turned disappointments and failings into an amusing appreciation of human foible and who added an enriching light-heartedness to accom­ plishments . . of imagination: the easy-going students who managed midterms, term- papers, mixers and movies in the same comfortable stride; scientists who organized and formulated everything from titrating to dating, announcing their engagements in the same short conversation in which they announced the solution to a difficult math problem . . of starry-eyes and visions: rainbows riders who came down to earth long enough to display their rings and announce the date; personnel people who dated the most eligible men that sail the seas . . of understanding: the eager ones who wrestled with Aristotle until they knew what "pers se" and "per accidens" really means; the special friends who listened and what is more, endured; the politicians, opinionated and articluate in every­ thing from Havana to Aadack; the philosophers, pragmatically, ideologically, scienti­ fically, poetically and historically versed in the wisdom and ways of life . . . Individuals . . the laughable, lovable, elegant, profound, amazing, intelligent, ingenious . . the good and the gracious, the pretty, popular, the promising, the sad, smiling and shy . . . indivi­ duals whose gifts and singularity formed the most important and enriching pattern of our four years together . . and whose influence and ideals will be a meaningful force throughout our lives . . . Our Faculty . . patient, helpful, exacting, encouraging and probably disappointed at times . . but always hopeful and always vital with the excitement and discovery of ideas — projected and illustrated . . History professors — alive and intrigued with the destinies of Henry VIII and Frederick Barbarossa . . Philosophers — explaining for the tenth time why the final cause is the cause of all causes . . Social and Political Scientists — grimacing, when reminding after the midterm that a nation is not a state and a com­ munity is not a society . . Language instructors — surviving anglinized versions of their



subject . . Drama and Speech instructors — exasperated after transforming stone-faced twentieth-century students into Shakespearian damsels . . Scientists — enduring the mangled results of amateur dissection and contaminated specimens . . Literature pro­ fessors — communicating the beauty of artistic creation, of words and language, and patiently attempting to understand less illuminating student papers ... A Faculty . . dedicated and appreciated . . whose value and help will be a continual source of guidance to be tapped in the many years to come . . The eternal and sublime . . the Annual Mass of the Holy Spirit . . Children of Mary . . Mater Admirabilis . . First Fridays . . noon Mass . . novenas and spiritual bouquets .. . The memorable . . Mother Danz . . Feast Wishes . . President's Days . . Faculty Lectures . . concerts and piano recitals . . dramatic productions . . student teaching . . twenty-first birthdays . . op. cit. and ibid. . . Christmas Formal . . Autumn Informal . .

The ordinary, but unforgettable . . tickets: parking and attendance . . class meet­ ings . . Ritchie's and Speedee Mart . . vending machines (working or otherwise) . . coffee over lab-books . . the bridge and the smoker . . the snow-topped mural . . mixers and "those who only stand and wait" . . stations one-through-seven on registration, multi­ colored student body cards . . proctoring, lunch lines, trench coats . . the portry on Friday nights . . the stacks . . deciphering the time-schedule . . post-office vigils . . the lower floor cultural showcases . . syllabi . . . Senior Year . . Father Spain . . graduate records . . engagement rings . . 12:30 class meetings, ten-day parties, cushions in the theatre (never enjoyed) . . sitting in the back at assemblies . . and the FINAL: mixers, parties, dinners, classes, grades and finals ...and Graduation . . the climax and culmination of four years . . intense in spiritual, in­ tellectual and personal growth . . stable in the heritage of the Sacred Heart . . within the view of the mighty sea. A farewell to the direct, daily influence of a tradition rich in spirit and purpose . . but a lasting recognition of its value and force in the years yet to come: "I am forever walking upon these shores Betwixt the sand and the foam

The high tide will erase my foot-prints And the wind will blow away the foam But the sea and the shore will remain Forever." (Kahil Gibran).

CLASS OF 1965 To the Class of 1965, college life at USD has truly proven to be a challenge —

academic, social, cultural, and spiritual — a challenge which has been met with a spirit

of determined accomplishment.

Could not determination be considered the keyword of our Freshmen year? As we

met the challenges of college life, our class responded with strong determination. Fears

were soon lost in the excitement of Freshman Week. The Freshmen Follies and class


party brought the class closer together. Collecting toys for the annual toy drive gave

everyone the real Christmas spirit. Our first retreat left us peace and zeal, and gave us

the feeling of being a real part of the student body.

Having completed that first challenging semester, our class swirled into the next

semester. Strains of "Waltz Dream", our Freshman Operetta, will be remembered long,

as will our Supper Dance and the success of our Carnival, which began a new tradition

at USD. As we gave the pizza party for our Seniors on Class Night, we realized that

our Freshman Year was at its close.

After a summer of varied activities, we returned as the Sophomore Class for 1962-

63. Initiating another tradition, our class sponsored a fruitful Thanksgiving drive which

was highlighted by the Greek-flavored "Sophomore Surprise."

Looking like a medieval castle, the main patio provided the setting for the Bal Des

Fleurs. Efforts for this project were well rewarded by the enchanting evening, as the

entire student body and their dates danced until one o'clock in the morning.


As the spring semester hurried by, house parties became a favorite form of social

activity. Soon, the "Sophomore Serenade" marked the close of another year.

Entering into the realm of upper division subjects, our Junior Class found itself in

the midst of full class schedules and heavy studies, dotted with social events. Soon prepa­

rations were begun for the Autumn Informal at Del Webb's Ocean House. A successful

Junior Fair was filled with memories of our Freshman Carnival.

Not a single heart remained untouched at the news of the assassination of our greatly

respected president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The student body offered a Requiem Mass

in our chapel on the day of his burial in the presence of a flag-draped catafalque. Rev­

erence, respect, renewed patriotism and admiration pervaded our classes and studies as

we continued our side of the battle.

"Our Hearts Were Young and Gay" when class rings arrived a few weeks before

Christmas. Plans for a snow trip to Lake Arrowhead during semester break helped to

make studying for final exams just a fraction more on the easy side.

Encouraged by accomplishments of past years and under the guidance of our coun­

selor, Mother Furay, and the class officers, Karen Graham, president; Carolyn Shaffer, vice-

president; Jean Childs, secretary; and Irma Mix, treasurer, our class returned to continue

our second semester of the junior year.

Next year will bring student teaching for many and graduate exams for others. And

for some it will bring the new world of engagement rings. Yet there will still be that

unifying thread which bound us together through our first three years at USD and which

will make us all one in eternity ... we are always Children of His Sacred Heart.

Mr. Robert Mathison and the Blue Room.

Second semester transfer students: Janet Malow- ney, Jacqueline Latham, and Lupe Jimenez.

Also new this semester: Mary Anne Arestad, Pat McGann, Sandra Lopez, and Emily Bonilla.

CLASS OF 1966 September was the month for renewing old friendships, making new ones and

settling into the classroom routine. The Sophomores made the adjustments from surf

and sand to texts and assignments with quite a bit of lamenting, but without too much

heartbreak. We bounced through the weeks without a care in the world — until mid­

terms. But even then, we made room in our schedule to reveal to the Freshmen the

great "Who are the Sophs?" mystery. The "Buddies" Dessert Party helped the Sophs

every bit as much as it helped the Freshmen!

From then on, 'til Christmas, life for our Sophomore Class was one big round of

football and basketball rallies and games; cheerleading; Kris Kindls; not to mention

support for the fall play; fun of our class party; dancing at the Christmas Ball; work

put into the Thanksgiving Clothing and Food Drive; and help for the Freshmen in

their annual Christmas Toy Drive. Best of all was the anticipation of a "restful"

Christmas holiday, with only ten times the homework and three term papers due on

January 8th!

Coming back in a new year, the Sophomores faced the grim ordeal of finals. But

the thought of the end of an old semester, and a few days of rest and a Retreat before

the beginning of a new one, brightened the horizon just a little.

By the end of January we were looking forward to the new semester filled with

dances, midterms, and upper division courses. The semester end looked very close with

its promise of a Bal des Fleurs and the presentation of our Associate of Arts certificates.

Our class officers exerted every bit of effort to make certain that we reached the Ball

and presentation. Mary Jo McBrearty was quite a lively president, with just a touch

of an erratic conformist in that Madras scarf on her hair. And certainly our drama


department would have been lost without the performances of vice-president Marsha

Zandi. Secretary Susan Lundquist received more than her share of writing exercises

in class and for our class. Richie's certainly would not have been the same on Tuesday

and Thursday without poetess and class treasurer Susie Skinner and her Rilkish ideas.

February may have had one extra day this year, but we certainly filled the entire

month to the brim — Mardi Gras Dance; the Supper Dance for all lower classmen;

our traditional variety show; and the penitential atmosphere of Lent. Easter vacation,

the College for Women Evening of Music, the University Ball, all kept us just on the

tips of our toes and walking at a very rapid pace.

By June the Sophomores began to make the adjustment from text and assignments

to surf and sand with (albeit) a lot of less grumbling than was heard in September!

We will return as Juniors, entitled to attend the upper division mixers and having the

privilege of watching the Freshmen and Sophomores struggle through P.E. twice a week!

Freshman Class Officers: Mary Kay Cowan, President; Mother Patricia Shaffer, and Susan Beli Treasurer.

CLASS OF 1967 Traditionally, we Freshmen were a "little confused" when we first appeared on

campus. After the first few weeks, however, our adjustments to the scholastic and

social life began. Of course, all of these experiences were accompanied by the help of

our big sisters, and our big brothers from the College for Men, who wrote cheerful

notes to encourage us and keep up our spirits. Welcome Week and the first month of

school brought the first events which initiated us into the family atmosphere of the

University. One activity followed another; Convocation and Investiture; the Fashion

Revue directed by social chairman Kathy Shea and Bill White; the Senior sponsored

Palm Patio dance; the ADG dance; the USD pool party; and finally the Flootenanny.

The Freshman Follies provided a wonderful opportunity for each member of our

class to become acquainted with one another. The unifying effect of this project con­

tinued the family atmosphere which we had come to recognize as one of the principle

values of USD. The talents of the Freshmen were very well displayed under the direc­

tion of Pat Wilson and Judy Banks.

Midterms interrupted the college social activities for a week, but the Junior Dance

presented by the Men's college in More Hall brought us back into a relaxed mood.

Marcie Lazzari led the volley ball team to victory and to our first trophy. Kathy Keptner

collected hundreds of toys with the aid of her class and the contributions of the student

body at our college. Thanksgiving and Christmas relieved us from the pressures of

classes for a while (but not from the pressures of term papers), and the mistletoe spirit

of the Bishop's Christmas party sent us home with a great deal of holiday spirit en­

veloping us.

During these first few months, the fortnightly officers gave us some examples of


the leadership qualities of our class. Mary Kay, Bunny and Helen began the task of

organizing all of us into a "class". Their work was continued by Susan, Anna Christina

and Mary Ann. Diane, Jo and Kathy did their share as we began to take on some

semblance of a unified group. Carole, Adrienne. and Jean contributed the final touches

and we prepared to elect permanent officers.

Logic, English, western civilization and anthropology took a second place as we

celebrated the elections of our permanent officers: Mary Kay, Judy, Susan, and Kathy.

Then our academic subjects re-entered the limelight as we experienced our first semester


Mother Shaffer's guidance, consideration and understanding helped each of us

to begin our second semester at USD. A few other events also aided in continuing the

buoyancy of our spirits: our Freshman Supper Dance with its Valentine theme; the

Phi Kappa Theta Dance; the Mardi Gras Dance just before Lent; the faculty lecture

in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas; and the Passion Play presented by the College for Men.

Easter vacation seemed to be only a brief stopping for a breath of air before we

continued our studies and our fun. Theatre Arts seemed to predominate as we sup­

ported the College for Women Drama Club in their spring play and the College for

Men in their performance of MEDEA. Final exams were not as difficult because they

seemed to spell out a favorite word — SUMMER VACATION.

Mother Bremner and Suzanne Munsell hurry to meet the publisher's deadline.



The Congregation of the Children of Mary of the Sacred Heart is the spiritual organ in the San Diego College for Wom­ en. The foundress, Saint Madeline Sophie, wrote that this organization is an "aposto- late," for all its members "must be Apos­ tles." The aim of every member is a perfect Christian life. Every Child of Mary conse­ crates herself to carry out the will of God in whatever state of life He has placed her. She strives for perfection by inculcating within her own life a spirit of detachment, courageous purity and devotion to the will of God. By strengthening her own spiritual life, she is able by example, to spread the love of the Sacred Heart throughout the world.

Planning the CIVIL RIGHTS Meeting at Pomona.

The International Relations Club seeks to famili­ arize its members with current events and issues on a four-fold basis. Through various media the group aims to study the political problems which face mod­ ern man; to know the essential differences between the opposing world blocs; to understand the reasons for and projected outcome of this conflict; and to promote a vital enthusiasm for the world in which we live. Implanting intellectual awareness of these four areas in the student constitutes the function of the I.R.C. at the San Diego College for Women. Mother McShane is the enthusiastic faculty adviser.

Sharon Moore, briefed the audience on the back­ ground of a guest speaker.


EL CLUB ESPANOL The prominent position that the Spanish language occupies at the College for Wo­ men is evidenced in the enthusiasm of the students who are heard conversing in Span­ ish with a more or less "American accent". Recently under the direction of our Spanish faculty a Spanish Club was organized with the aim of acquainting interested students with the language, literature, customs, history, and problems of the Spanish speak­ ing world. Through their activities the mem­ bers hope to make our "Alcala on the hill" come closer (at least in spirit) to the Alcala in Spain.

Preparing for the Christmas Posada which promises to be an annual function of the newly formed Spanish Club are the officers Irene Cannes (Sec.), Cynthia Char- masson (Counselor), Stephanie Mayfield (Vice Pres.) and Anita Good (Pres.).

Noontime provides the Spanish Club and faculty advisers — Senora Bartelme, Senor Blanco, and Senora Graves — with an opportunity to practice the language.

ALCALA PARK PLAYERS The main concern of the Alcala Park Players is the sponsoring of two full length plays annually. Death Takes A Holiday and The Miracle Worker, this year's pro­ ductions, offered all who attended first rate entertainment and a chance to sit on cush­ ions for future productions. The proceeds from these plays were donated to the school for new theater cushions.

WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The W.A.A. serves the purpose of promoting school spirit through outdoor exercise and recreation. Throughout the year the club sponsors various ac­ tivities. In the warm months sailing is a favorite. On campus the volleyball, volleytennis and basket­ ball seasons terminate with the W.A.A. staging an intramural tournament for each sport. Climaxing the competition is the awarding of the "Spirit Ban­ ner" at the end of the year. In this way the W.A.A. plays a vital role both in encouraging enthusiasm within the class and in fostering physical fitness.

"After the rains came" Mrs. Mercado and the officers of the W.A.A., Judy Blaine (Vice Pres.) and Wendy Eisman (Pres.) inspected the tennis court.
