The 29 by 10 foot bill— board, advertising the current build­ ing program, shows the proposed library and auditorium, which will soon be under construction. Under the direction of Sister Jeanne, Joan Campbell designed the billboard and received aid in its execution from Sue Kaminsky, Marlene Murphy, Marcia Lemke, Joan Stanislawski, Barbara Joyce, Bernie De Maria, Betsy Zimmermann, Carol Gran­ ville, and Nancy Beecher. The student construction of the sign has saved the college an esti­ mated $500, which Sister Angela says will be added to the building fund drive.

The yearbook staff is: Editor-in-Chief, Agnes Cavanaugh; Art Editor, Betsy Zimmerman; Bus­ iness Manager, Patricia Coloqu- houn. Prelude Proves Fun for All The Sophomore “Prelude Dance,” February 12 in the Roycroft Inn, East Aurora, was a complete suc­ cess—it even made money. General Chairman Karen Nielsen reported that the dance netted $12; all who attended reported a good time. The committees included Pat Ryan, arrangements; Mary Benson and Sue Spencer, decorations; Gretchen Klausman and Ann Lal- ley, tickets. The 30 maps, clearly indicating the road to East Aurora proved a wonderful aid to navigation. The amateur map-maker, Karen Niel­ sen, however, couldn’t seem to fol­ low her own directions, and almost didn’t get there. The music of Gene Regan, gay red hearts, and soft candle-light completed the valentine atmosphere. The annual Mother and Daugh­ ter Communion Breakfast high­ lighted activities of the Daemen Mothers’ Club for March. Father John B. O’Malley celebrated Mass on Sunday at 9:00 in Blessed Sacrament Chapel, at which the entire group sang hymns, with Mrs. John P. Dempsey at the or­ gan. Mrs. Joseph M. Stephan, was chairman. Breakfast followed immediately at the Westbrook Hotel, where Msgr. Roman Nuwer was speaker. Marlene Schuler played a violin solo, accompanied by Jo- Ann Fish, who played a solo on the piano. The table will be arranged appropriately with spring Father Victor To Profess Novices Following close upon the Recep­ tion of new members into the Third Order is Profession for those novices who have fulfilled all the requirements. To emphasize the day’s impor­ tance and how solemn it should be, a Day of Recollection has been planned in conjunction with the ceremony. The Day of Recollection will be held on March 14 at Stella Niagara in Lewiston. It will be conducted by Fr. George Flanagan O F M. After all have had ample time for self - appraisal and for reflecting upon the rule of life they have voluntarily imposed upon them­ selves, Fr. Victor will conduct the Profession ceremony. The novices have had a year to “try” as it were, the Franciscan way to God. Now that they have spent time learning the rules and practicing Franciscanism, they choose to adopt it as their own way for life. God will not be outdone in generosity for as they promise to do all these things for Him, the priest concludes the ceremony with the wonderful words, “If you ob­ serve all these things, I, on the part of God, promise to you Eternal Salvation.” flowers flanked by candelabra with yellow candles. As there are now Two alumnae classes and a large freshman class, made possible a very good ^tendance is expected. Mrs. Charles R. Turner will show pictures of her trip to Texas at the regular monthly Daemen Mothers’ Club meeting on March 16. The Sophomore Mothers will be host­ esses at the luncheon, at which a nominating committee for next year’s officers will be selected. Mr. Raymond F. Schütz, Mr. Mark G. Braven, and Mr. Peter S. Reardon are drawing up a slate of nominees for next year’s officers to be voted on at the first Gonzaga Fathers’ Club Meeting in April. Drama Major To Play Moor Rom ’ Moor Born on March 28 and 29 will be the second student pro­ duction of the drama department in the history of Rosary Hill Col­ lege.

This year the producer - director is Shirley Flood, the only member of the Senior class whose field of con­ centration is drama. Moor Born, the story of the three Bronte sisters and their climb to success, presents a stirring dra­ matic challenge to the participating actors. The cast will include Bar­ bara Joyce as Anne Bronte; Ei­ leen Cuddihy portraying Martha, the young Cockney maid; Joan Wheat as Tabby, the old Irish housekeeper; Mary Paul Kennedy playing Charlotte Bronte and Pat­ ricia Brechtel as Emily Bronte.

Charter Day Celebration Held A buffet supper was held on February 17 in Daemen Hall to celebrate the first anniversary of the day on which Rosary Hill re­ ceived its charter. Friends of the faculty were invited to attend. A cause for added celebration was the fact that Rosary Hill Col­ lege has received permission from the State Board to grant Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Music degrees. Mrs. Raymond Schütz, Mrs. Oliver Perry and Mrs. Mark Conley were hostesses for the occasion. RH Student Guest Soloist at Concert Rochelle Bogoslawski, freshman, was guest soloist on February 28 for a concert sponsored by the choir of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church.

These coupons are to be given to Patricia Madden, Freshman. Success For 2nd Intercollegiate Social Dance The need for a greater social re­ lationship among the five Catholic colleges, namely, Rosary Hill, D’Youville, St. Bonaventure, Cani­ sius and Niagara, has been readily acknowledged by both the students and administrations of these schools. The answer to this need came in the form of the Intercollegiate Dance Committee. This committee, composed of students from each of the five colleges, sponsored their first dance on December 11th at the Knights of Columbus auditori­ um. The first venture was a social success as well as a financial one. The second intercollegiate dance was held on February 26th at the Elks auditorium. Approximately 400 students attended and a profit of $65 was reported by the Dance Committee. This profit, along with that from the first dance exceeds $300 and will be placed in a joint bank account under the Intercol­ legiate Fund. This fund will be used for the purpose of having more dances; another dance is being plan­ ned by the Committee for sometime after Easter vacation. The Intercollegiate Dance Com­ mittee is composed of Zari Man- zella, Pat Brinkworth, Marie Gal­ lagher, Joanne Naber and Mary Ann Bell from Rosary Hill; Cathy Breese, Helen Keefe, Mary White, Lee Mule and Fran Curra from D’Youville; Ray Naber, Dick Ges- sert, Frank Busteed, Don O’Connor and Fred Floss from Canisius; Jack Malley, Jack McCarthy and Paul McCabe from Bonnie; Mike Cham­ berlain, John Dowdall, Ed O’Grady and Tom Denn from Niagara. These dances are sponsored by and for Catholic college students; it’s up to the students to support them. Those who did not attend missed a great time. So, get on the ball — make the next Intercol­ legiate Dance!
