Senior Class History Wide -eyed with the wonde r of being the first Freshman Class atthe San Diego College for Women, fifteen of t he present gradua ting class began the ir four-ye ar history of "b eing first." We were the first stud ents on the Alcala Park campus to be rece ived by Reverend Mothe r Rosalie Hill, founder and builder of the San Diego College for Women, to assist at a Mass of the Holy Ghost and to be invested with cap and gown. We wer e the first — and last — to entertainthe British Navy at a supper dance! When ReverendMot her Hill returned from Rome, we even exerci sed tri-location — we were at the station to meet her, we were at the fron t door to gree t her, and we used the theatre for the first time to receive her!!! Another "first" to our cre dit was our "Fresh­ man Follies." Encour aged by tha t success, we presented a unique (and fortunately, pri­ va te) inte rpre tationof THE MIKADO. Rut our production of the first annual Christmas Pageant enti tled "Christmas inMany Lands" was just as fort unately public, ifwe may judge from audience response. Our caroling was also begun tha t year, but on a small scale; already conscious of the Sacred Heart "fam­ ily" tradition ,we carolled the community by cand lelight one evening and next morning began the tradition of a surprise cap and gown Mass by way of saying "thank you" to our beloved faculty.

January 30, 1953 marked a "One-Year- Old Par ty" for the college, and shortly after that we elected our first studen t-body officers. As a studen t-bodywe institu tedFriday-night mixers, but then gave them up for Lent and for always, since by tha t time the academic aspect of c ollege life had asserted itself. We, the freshmen , did enterta in the upperclass- men, however, at a Valentine dance , and they reciproca ted on St. Patrick's day. A spring for­ mal in May and Pres ident's Day with games and a picnic on the athleti c courts brought this first tradit ion-making year to a memor­ abl e close. Wewent home burs ting with our importance as "FoundationStones".

Septembe r 1953 reunited the class of '56 with Mother Susan Campbel l as counselor and Leann Mahoney, JacquelineKearns, and Mary Tur ner as our first class officers. Ma de more thoughtful and prayerful by t he loss of Fai th Brown in sudden death, we began our year as sophomores, determined to

Junior Class History

"College at last!" was our thought as we wandered around in a maze of classrooms and laboratories in 1953. But, with the help of our counselor, Mother Frances Danz, we managed to amuse the upper-classmen with the portraits we painted of their future antics in our FRESHMEN FOLLIES.' Class officers that year were Valmere Dessert, Lidia Fon– cerrada, and Carol Farrell. Our sophomore year, under the guidance of Mother Susan Campbell and officers - Virginia Rodee, Carol Farrell, and Joan Young - was filled with memorable activities from dinner aboard Admiral Rodee's U.S.S. Prince– ton to the unforgettable thrill of the BAL DES FLEURS in May. We were saddened by the loss of Rosa Maria Molina that summer, but Colombian shores beckoned her. Charming to the end, she bid us all good-bye at a farewell tea at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. Joan Young, Joann Wigchert, Lidia Foncer– rada, Joan Beretich, Gail Henderson, Eliza– beth Vopateck, Dale Tallman, and Noelle Onorato left us to be married, but they have kept their promise to keep in touch by corre– spondence. Those of us who are determined to "earn a B.A. or B.S. first" gathered at Evelyn Teachout's Chula Vista home for a reunion breakfast on graduation day in June.

With our newly acquired upperclass status, we launched our good ship S.S. Junior in grand style with Carol Farrell, PatriciaKeane, and Evelyn Teachout at the helm. The Har– vest Dance gave us our first opportunity to prove that we were seaworthy, and we passed with flying colors. Midterms, Christmas par– ties, and finals flew by with unbelievable speed. Helping "little sisters," retreat, another registration, Easter, and the ever-present work on the yearbook kept us so occupied that summer was suddenly upon us with a fashion-show luncheon, farewell parties, and all the promise of our SENIOR YEAR .. .

Sophomore Class History

As the Sophomores stand midway in their ascent up the ladder of college life, they glance back a t ahistory full of c lass activities and enthusi astic participat ion in school affairs. Following the election of permanen t offi­ cers in December, 1954, freshman-class life began at the San Diego College for Women. Guided by their counselor, Mothe r Sally Furay, and officers—VirginiaRauseh, Patricia

Gonzales, Ann Dyer, and Adrienne Kuhe — class members made plans for daily advance­ ment in spiri tual, intel lectual, and social endeavors. Aswimming and supper party, given Janu­ ary 9 by Arlene Glenn at her home in National City, united the class of '58 in its first off- campus activity. Feb ruary found freshmen roasting weiners at Presidio Park, and making plans for their first dance, "The Play's the Thing ," February 19. El Monte was the scene of the March picnic for freshmen and their date s. Georgia King e nte rtai ned the class at a buffet luncheon in the garden of her La Jolla home during April. Concludingthe excitement of final examin­ ations , the spring prom, and commencement exercises, the class of '58 gathered at Hotel del Charro in La Jolla for its class brunch, May 29. With its initiation ofa summe r news­ let ter , the class began a new tradition for freshmen at S.D.C.W. Retu rning to college as sophomores in Sep­ tember , 1955,class members devoted all their leisure time to helping "Littl eSisters." First on the calenda r of e vent s was a "Swim with the Sophomores" par ty at the Town and Count ry Clubin Mission Valley. A few weeks late r, the Freshman Class was asked to roller skat e with the sophomores at Palisades Roller

Class officers — Virginia Rausch, Ann Dyer, Jean Fea therstone, and Mary Lee Wible — with class counselor, Mothe r Susan Campbell, began planning anothe r full year for the class of '58. An e vening picnic, heldOctober 15 at Pepper Grove in Balboa Park, provided an opportunity for sophomores and thei r dates to demonst rate outdoor cooking skill. With the approach of the holiday season , the class once more gathered at Arlene Glenn's home for a buffet supper following the tradi tion Chri st­

mas pageant. The New Year brou ght resolutions for big­ ger andbetter class reunions. Patricia McNair was the first to make these dreams come true. The weekend following the annua l retreat, she invited all her classmates for two days of snow-filled fun at Crestline in the San Bernar­ dino Mountains. All atten tion and talents were then focused on Sophomore Serenades and the BAL DES FLEURS, the annual events which the Sophomores sponsor as a final tribute to the graduatingclass.

To cel ebrate the end of exams, our fort­ nightly pres ident, Pat Malcahy, and her fel­ low officers organi zed an afternoon at Coro- nado beach in mid-November. December brought our firstChris tmas Ball, wh ile many of us par ticipated actively in the pageant, "American Christmas, " the following week. On January eighth, the day student s enter­ tained the residence student s at a post-Christ­ mas buffet supper at Irma Serrano's home. The talk of t he party was, of course , final ex­ aminations and the men's college formal. Fa the r Parish's fine retreat gave impetus to our second semester beginnings .

Dance chair ­ man, Angel Kraemer, and her commi ttee chai rmen, Cordelia Curley, Janet Berardinelli and Inna Serrano, innovated with colorful and clever Valentine pinatas to be broken dur ing the evening.

At Com­ mencement on May twenty- seventh,we said good-bye for the summer at our first Class Reunion Brunch, and congratulat ed each other on our attainment of the first landing in the ladder , thanks to Mother Furay, our big sisters, and everyone who encouraged us. So "Move up, sophomores, we' re here to stay. "

They are invitedto join the Aspirants ofSt. Madeleine Sophie unde r the direction of Mother Campbe ll in their sophomore year. All — pre-aspi rant s, aspir­ ants , and members — strive daily "to make interior life of the soul of (t he ir )daily life," bu t special honors go to Mary Turne r, who has been elected three years in succe ssion to crown Our Lady at the end of the scholas tic year in May.

gresses for the college students and the four hundred juniors and seniors of the Catholic high schools. The first was the Marian Con­ gress of1954, the second the Congress on the Mass in 1955. In both cases the members of the Bureau wrote and delivered the papers. In the spring semester the Speakers' Bureau plans and solicits th e cooperation of the stu­ den t body for the Public Relations program of sending speakers to the private and public high schoolsof the area. The present officers: Marilynn Mayer, Chairman first semester; Mary Jimenez, His­ torian; Paula Sabin, Chairman , second sem­ ester.

The Speaker'sBureau was initia ted March 29,1954. It is aChrist opher movement center­ ing on the Apostleship of Speech. Its purpose is to provide its members with the opportunity to express themselves, to exchange ideas, to deve lop poise in speech, andto practice lead­ ersh ip on and off campus . There were four teen Chart er Members: Margaret Fahl strom, Mary Jimenez, Ruth Jimenez, Jacqueli neKearns, ElayneLangen- ieux, Leann Mahoney, Caro l Reilly, Virginia Rodee, Paula Sabin , Mary Scott, Marilynn Mayer, JeanRubel, Mary Cardoza, and Carol Farr ell.

Th e Stud ent Council

Based on "the princip le that all authority is derived from God and rests with His repre­ senta tives and with those to whom any share of His governing power is dele gated, " acon­ stitut ion was drawn up, in the summer of 1954, providing for a cooperative form of government to be administered by faculty and students working toge ther . Prior to this timethe studentbody hadbeen governed by Kathleen McGonigle as presi­ den t (1952-1953 and 1953-1954), Mary Bing- geli as vice-president (1952-1953and 1953- 1954 ), Constance Jimenez as social chairman and Joan Hall as secretary . In Sept ember 1954, Kathleen Brophy was elected social chairman and Janet Contant as secre tary. According to the new const itution the elections of 1954-1955 called for student-body officers who would also head standing com­

mittees in the college. These officers, class pres idents, and special delegates from the classes compose the student council . Student- Body officers for 1954-1955 wer e: Jacqueline Kearns, Ka thl een Br ophy ,Ma ry Tu rner , Leann Mahoney, and Lillian Jimenez. The funct ion of the Studen tCouncil is to foste r understanding and cooperation be­ tween Faculty and Studen t Body by repre­ senting the views of t he Studen t Body to the Administration. This representation is made to the Presid ent of t he College,Mothe r Cath­ erine Parks, Mode rator of t he Council. Th e aim of the Studen t Council is to up­ hold the college motto "THAT ALL MAY BE ONE," and in so doin g foster the "family" trad ition, whichis the her itage of all colleges of the Sacred Heart.

Hostess Committee Inaugura ted for gracious greetings, the Hostess Committeeaims at enter tainingvisi­ tors at the college in order tha t their stay may be enjoyed and remembered. Meetingon the average ofo nce amonth, the group discusses appropri ateplans for expected guests. Col­ lege or senior high school visitors tour the campus and engage in cu rrent college activi­ ties. Highlight ing the ir visit, the Hostess Commit te sponsors a dance, tea , or tour of San Diego in hon or of the guests. For events such as major drama productions, or special programs, members of the Committeeact as official hostesses for the college.

Welfare Committee This commi ttee was established by the Cons titution of t he Associated Student Body under the chairmanship of the Studen t Body President for the purpose of cari ng for the interest of individual students, studen ts in general, and the college as a whole. Such a task involves the preservation of high stand­ ards of Christ ian conduct, dress, and order. The wise and loving over-all guidance of Reverend Mother Rosalie Hill and the ofter repeated conviction of San Diego 's beloved Bishop has been the constan t inspiration of

the organ ization — "We have agrea t work to do, and we cannot come down!" Th e membership ofthe commit tee consists of its c hairman and as many semesterlyproc­ tors as the re are campus-areas to be proc- tored. These proctors are chosen by the chair­ man in consultation with the faculty moder­ ator, andthey are drawn fromall four classes. Responsibilities are shared by resident and day students. Weekly proctors areappointed by the semes terly proctors.
