The seniors have been given their course in Cl'iminology by Dr. Ford.

Lastly, the Junior Class will p•·esent a skit fo•· the a•sembly, in which the juniors will be disguised as members of the Senior Class, impersonating members o! '52 in the way that they will be best •·•membered. Thi• Is in no way meant. t.o be merely enter. taining and comical, but its true algnificance is found in the meaning the s kits will hold for the Juniors also. The class of '52 is vauting the most prominent place among stndenta, and this is the juniors' way of telling them that they will always be remembered by them in the years to come. Art Work To Be Shown The senior art exhibit scheduled for May 9, 10, and 11, will feature the artistic accomplishment of the senior n1·t students In va•·ious fields of art.

What better anthem is there than this love song to celebrate the rebirth of nature, the budding and blossoming brought on by April showers, and the house-cleaning and poHshing up of our love and affection for the lovliest Queen of the ~fay, Mary. Let's let our reawakened love for her blossom anew and push up just a bit farther. If you never say a daily rosary, say one now, and if you already say one, say two for her because "it's Spring again," and "IO\'e·time," May. ls S. !(,. 0. Jentiollnf ? To mention the subject of S R.O. at Nazat·eth College will bring, to say the least, a vivid and dynamic reaction. There are few who remain neutral. It is either an unmitigated evil, o1· an unmixed blessing. The whole approach to the question of a student mus· ical has ceased to be rational, and has become a rationalization. Teachers quite often assume it to be bad, and students assume it to be a good excuse for failing exams, sloppy school work, and being tardy or absent f rom classes. It is the latte1· rationalization that is probably the cause of the first. S.R.O. is time consuming, and until science discovers a new basis for computing time, twenty-four hours will remain twenty.four hours. Into these hours. particularly during the fina l two weeks before production, must be crammed classes 11nd meals, sleep and homework, term papers and dormitory or home life, and an increasing number of rehearsals and additional study on lines, lyrics or dance routines. Everyone agrees that a student musical has an intrinsic value, but the question of relative values often arises. Are you getting out of it all you are putting in to it? Few will deny that if it is to be produced at all, it should conform to certain literary, dramatic and musical standards, and these take time and thought. Anything less would certainly let relative values suffer, as well as lessen the intrinsic value. The point of attack is usually not theory. but practical application, for here, students' sound judgements may become fogged with detail, until the production becomes an unmanageable Hydra. However, it is possible to keep S.R.O. well within limits satisfactory to everybody. In casting, each person chosen should have the necessary talent which the script requires. To have a good script or sco1·e ruined by poor casting is the bane of a conscientious caster. But, choosing one whose marks are low, is only stot·ing up additional headaches for the directo•·s, more t han the person's value to t he show cou ld ever make up for. The production should be geared to a size and length that can be handled by amateurs, whose first duty is college. It is essentia l to keep up with school work. particulal'ly since S.R.O. is scheduled late in the Spring calendar, but any clearsighted person will realize that it is impossible to forge ahead. A sane approach, with no rationalization on anyone's part is t he only way in which S.R.O. can achieve and maintain its equilibrium, and its place as one of the most fascinating social and dramatic events of the school year. /JOIIIJII&fs In this final issue of "Gleaner" for the vear 1951-52.

Friday, May 2, 1952 )1Jnding M!l Jfusiness JUDY GAGLIO Perhaps the1-e isn't a person alive. between the ages of 18-22, who liku I<> do any serious think. ing during the summer months. Being in eomplete sympathy with the tribulations of this age group we believe in tonfining all summer intellectual activity to en. tertainmenL And fortunately thU. summer there will be two !hows that will rival any produced by professional performers. We meso, ot eourse. the Democratic and Republican conventions. Sinc:e it will be almost impossible to follow the behind the 8<'Cncs bargaining- most of the delegates themselves don't know what's going on- the best thing 1<> do is to relux and enjoy the show. Fl1·st the•·c will be speeches I<> info1·m the purty brethren what the pnrty is up to in its heroic attempt to save the nation !tom ce•·taln disasU!r. These long.wind. ed o•·atot·s will outline pal'ty pro· g•·arns in sweeping style but be •·ather hazy about just how these will be implemented; fo1· example, the ltepublieans will, no doubt, promise the farmers prosperity hut be vague about p•·ice sup· ports and aubsidies. To point up the pervc1"1ed program of the other party there will be plenty of jibes..-of the clumsy son, wsually, and speeches will be heavily laden with invective. When Clare Booth Luee spoke at the 1948 Republican Convention she gave an elaborate displa)• of invective that outdid the keyno!<'r. B~uu the Republicans will probably be on the offensive it is quit.- safe I<> predict that thei:r convention will be the more in .. IA!resting of the two. Their proposals will include the following generous services 1<> the Amer· ican people. 1. Balance the budget and bring sound financing to the governmenL 2. Redure taxes, bureauera(y, foreign aid, waste in government and in the Armed For. ces. 3. Stop the spread or Commu. nism. They can do it 0\0t"IC cheaply than the Demoerats. 4. End the war in Koren. Pre· cisely how they will do It they won't say but they will take vigorous meaju 1·es to b•·ing the boys home. 5. Promise labo1· protectio:n f t·om COI'rupt union lenders by enforcement of the TaftHartley law. 6. Promise European coopet·n· tion fo•· peace but hed~re a bout too gt'eat an entanglement in Eua·opean affai1'1. The humor of the grandiof!:e plans comes from the !act that they are said quite seriously while the audience shouts itaelt hoarse in expressing approval. The conventions, on tht rurfac~. are a ridiculous display of adoles. cent e.x:ube-ranee--men with a p<>o litieal persuasion thrive on hot air.

College, visited Nazareth College on Ap•·il 22 and 23. Her visit is a •·~ult of the College's appli- ' cation fo•· membership in the American Association of Unive•·· 1 sity Women. It was Dr. Oursler's tas.k to evaluate Nazareth~ and her report will be submitted and conside• ·ed. If the acceptance committee is satis~ed with the report. the acceptance of the college will be voted upon. If the vote is favot·able then the College will be placed on the Assodation's ap~ proved list. The A.A.U.W. pamphlet on 'rPJ·ocedure for Approval of Col· leges and Universities" states their membership p o 1 i c i e s. u Among the pm·poses of the American Association of University Women at·e the mainten· ance of high standards of education and advancement of the intel'est.s of women in education. In approving an institution for A.A.U. W. membership, the Association is concerned not only with the Institution's academic standing but also with the provisions made for women students and the recognition of women in the student body, faculty, administration and governing board." Dr. Oursler's tour of the college included attendance at a l"ehearsal of the Glee Club and a meeting of the Student Council. Dr. Our.sler said that she was 11im-l pressed at the democratic way the meeting was carried out." RED CROSS ACTIVE HERE The Mass Feeding Class will undergo its final test tonite when they prepa•·e supper for those remaining th.-ough the evening for S.R.O. This project has been sponso•·ed by the Red Cross with the purpose of qualifying college gil·ls to aid in Ul'ban ki t(:hens in case of emergency.

RADIO EDITOR, AUTHOR INTERVIEWED For the last few years David Roberts. a native Roehesterian, has acted as WVET news editor and United Press Correspondent for this area. He is probably remembered by most people for his spectacular and thorough coverage of the Brighton gas blast dis· aster. He was the first radio reporter to broadcast directly from the scene of the explosions. Through. out the afternoon his on-the-spot reports of the damage and de· struction plus his running account to United Ptess in New York City solidified his position as one of Rochester's top ranking press and radio reporters. Surprisingly enough, his activity in this field is subservient to what Mr. Roberts confesses to be his main objeeti ve-to w1·ite ere. ative fiction. So far hard work has paid off. He has published three short stories, the latest of which is to appear in the book called, Story 11. At the moment he is trying to sell his tint novel, ''An attempt to investigate the lost dignity of m.an in wa1·,'" and at the same time is working on his second. Concerning women in radio Mr. Roberts pointed out that there nre many opportunities and that women a1·e becoming quite prominent in radio and TV. There is much 1·oom fo1· advancement especially beh ind the scenes, as producers and direct01-s. "Radio is no longer the place where the imaginative, ambitious person gets a job and then experience. This still happens but more and wore the specialized schools for radio and TV are being recognized and graduates of these schools are being hired." Mr. Roberts' advice to those who would like to work in radio or TV is to attend such a school, if possible, and alterwards "~um .. ble yourself to do anything in radio-get your foot in the door and even if you have to sweep floors, at least you1· name i$ on the radio staff.'' THE GLEANER NEW MURAL .UNDERWAY E:very year about this time 11something'' appears on the wall of the tunnel between the administration building and the gym. For the first few weeks as the masses of color and lines begin to take shape eveJ•yone wonders what will this yca1·'s mut·al be. The fhst mural was done several years ago by John C. Meriman, a well known artist of this area . He chose a modern inteJ·prctation of Ruth for the centeo· panel. The task of decorating the rest of the tunnel was taken on by the Art Depa1·tment. Local history is the theme that the rest of the panels follow. In het· senior year each art student has a chance to do her pa1·t in the painting of the mural unde•· the direction of Professot· ·walter K. Long and Sist<!r M. De Sales. The first one, "At the Bend of the River" was done in 1948. It 1·epresents the Jesuits. lnstructing the J'ndians. A companion panel of "The Lily of the Mohawks" was done the following yeat·. In 1950 the large class of Senio.- at·t students did two murals. Tho boat·ders did usunday Morning in the Flowe•· City." The chut·ch in the background is authent.. ically copied from old photographs of St. Patrick's Church. They also went to the museum and sketched costumes of the 1850 period. The day students of the same class did a panel commemorating the 300th annive• ·sa.-y of the Siste•·s of St. Joseph. Last year, "The Erie Canal" was painted. This yeu· c1.u-rying on with the local history uCobbs Hill School House" is the topic.

KLEM NEW BULLETIN IS OUT The bulletin for Nazareth Col· lege has been issued for the years 1952-1953. It is p•·imarily for students interested in attend. ing this college. Information in the catalog includes the require· ments lor incoming Fr·cshmen, the number of credits necessary for a degree, and the various courses offered at the college. There have been a few revisions, the most outstanding of which is the recognition of the college by the American Medical Association. This has been an important step for Nazareth be· cause of the additional prestige which it lends to her name. Nazareth College is already accredired by the Regents of the Univet sity of the State of New York; the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and the National Catholic Educational Association. Anyone wishing a catalog may wl'ite to the Registrar at the College. He received his B.A. from St. Andrew on the Hudson, Poughkeepsie, N. Y., in 1926; his M.A. from Woodstock College, Maryland, in 1929; his S.T.L. (Licenti· ate in Sacred Theology) 1935; and Ph.D. from Cambridge Univ., England, in 1940.

Lake Erie Region OSP ehair· man, Bob McVeigh, expressed his gratitude to Nazareth !or its CO· operation and enthusiasm in the drive. NEW DIGEST OFFERED NAZARETH STUDENTS The lovable G. K. Chesterton, who became infected with Mari .. anitis, as he himself puts it, when quite young, and only grew worse as he tried to ~nd reasons for bl'U$hing het• off, wrote that it was one of the great exciten1ents of his later life to discover Our Lady "young as the dawn in a world that had grown old and forgotten the splendors of the soul." And now many people feel they have lost so much in not having OUR LADY'S DIGEST along with thei•· prima1·y catechism that they want to shout from the housetops to bring Mary into the home, to warm each heart with the gt·ace of holiness and peace-for that is the purpose of OUR LADY'S DIGEST. The contents of this little magazine will make all Catholic t•ead· ers in Ame.riea conscious of the influence and power of Mary at the Heavenly Cout·t. Some sideUghts !rom OUR LADY'S DIGEST could be quoted but time and space are limited. This must be passed on- "Eve was such a bad girl, because she had no mother to guide her. \Ve are mo1·e fortunate, we have OUJ~ Blessed Mother." A 11 sorts of people will enjoy this magazine-it's so easy to read !-full of joy, dignity, and literat·y excellence as well. 4 THE GLEANER Friday, May 2, 1952 Class History of the Class of '52 !t was only four short years ago that the class of "52" first made its debut at Nazareth College. As green Freshmen we didn't know much about the school nor our fellow elaumates but in the four years in college the result has been-"\Ve are the dau or fifty-two, comrades forever loyal and true." \Ve have tried to live up to these words. Probably the most outstanding thing that draws a class together are social nctivities. The ente.rtainntent. a !or ou1• clap parties and teas remind us somewhat or A ga1a BroadwAy •·oviow. \V• have done minstrel 3hows, "Cone. With-the-Wind" tjlke·off, melodramas, cun·cnt hit musicals and ptaclically eve&·ything imaginable. We even turned SnowWhite into • college show. No one con guess the work and pt·ayet· t hat went into t hese undc•' lakings. Last minute dnbs or crepe hair to ndd charncterizatlon, an extra eprinkle or holy wnt.er on the leading lady, rehearsals that lasted 'til all hours. The way evcrythin~e went off without ~nery falling wu close to miraculous. We all believed that our talent plus a little help from Our Lady made our shows extra special. Working together for the good of the class and the school was the order of the day and everyone was ready to com· ply. OUR FIRST T£A We shall never forget the Freshmen-Senior tea our first year at the college. Half wore hats and the other half were tempted to aport oxfords. However, we were impressed with the formality of the occasion and managed to act as aophisticated as a F•eshman can. We ate the little tea sandwiches like pea· nuts and had an absolutely ma•·velous time. Hetzler Foundries Inc. Founders ol Aluminum. Brase, Bronse. Gray Iron Ca.tin~ 167 VILLA STREET ROCHESTER. N. Y.

If, MAY DAY AND VACATIONS Our first May Day was beautiful and impressive. The mc-st beautiful part was Benediction in the Sisters' garden. We all ftlt as close to heaven as people on earth could. After school dosed, for summer vacation everyone went to the lake for one house party or another. People kept visiting and eatlng and visiting again until all house parties seem to converge into "une g1·andc mns.se.u at which class aongs were written and pl'oje<ts were discu•sed for the coming yanr.

S.R.O. claimed a g•·eat deal of our talent and the tJongs and dances seemed quite professional to all or us. Many nights various members of our clau sat up making Spanish costumes but the final result was very good. The Winter Carnival queen was t-hosen among gre.1t competition betw~n our class and the Juniors and even though ve lost by a few dollars, the "s;,n.er. ing together" served its puri)O!e:. Our <lau was a strong unit by this time. SHOES FOR THE COLLEGE GIRL PARMELEE SHOES 60 East Avenue TRANT'S Inc.

As Freshmen we dressed as characters from the Divinr Cm><cdv; we hod become so mueh a part of this work that we used this time to give vent to our pent up emotions. The costumes were crude, to the extreme. As Sophomores, the influence or bridge and euchre showed itaelf lor we all dressed as the "ca•·ds of 52." No one seemed to np· p•·eciate the similn•·ity of the number but we made up fot· the ignorance of others und enjoyed it to the fullest. The Mm·tins and the Coys had a regula•· feud our Junior year, and the costumes were as close to authentic ss u Northerner could produce. As Seniors: we could not drag our. selves away from studies and went as members of the faculty.

So many times decorations of crepe paper that we had spent most of the doy arranging would fall, but still we decorated.
