FOREWORD 

The past year, we trust, has been a memor- 
able one, in new experiences, new acquaintances, 
and acquired knowledge here at St. Mary's Semi- 
nary Junior College. 

Through the medium of this book we are en- 
deavoring to record some of these outstanding 
experiences for you, and if this Castellan has 
captured just a little of the spirit of our past 
year at St. Mary's, we feel it will be a success.

To Miss Claire V. Stickney, we 
the graduates of 1952-53 dedicate 
this issue of the Castellan. 

Miss Stickney received her early 
education at Notre Dame de la Com- 
passion, Hauteville et St. Dennis, 
France, and she has done graduate 
study at the University of Havana. 
Needless to say, her studies abroad 

have equipped her with a knowledge of the people and customs of these 
foreign countries as well as their language. She has also done graduate 
work in the United States at the Catholic University in Washington, D. C, 
and at Middlebury College in Vermont. 

In addition to being an excellent teacher, Miss Stickney has shown 
her students the more social side of foreign countries through her able 
sponsoring of the French Club. This French Club, through Miss Stick- 
ney 1 s leadership, has given many enjoyable picnics for its members as 
well as an annual dance which is looked forward to by all the students. 
She also presides over the French table in the Dining Hall and through 
her work as a teacher and a friend, Miss Stickney has fostered an active 
interest in languages. 

Throughout her many years at St. Mary's, Miss Stickney has always 
been known to support and uphold the traditions of our college. 

We, the students of St. Mary's Seminary Junior College, would like 
to say, "Merci Beaucoup, Mademoiselle Stickney."

Seniors 



ROBERT ADAMS "Bob" 

"He does it with better grace but I do it more natur- 
al." 

Friendly and easy going with a beautiful voice. 
Bob has sung at many of the assemblies at SMS and 
with the Choir on some of its local performances. 
It seems to us that one of his favorites could very 
well be "Every Day is Ladies Day With Me". 



LEE BRECKENRIDGE "Lee Pee" 

Treasurer 
"The gentleness of all the Gods go with thee." 
Choir 3; A. A. Board 4; Signal News Production Man- 
ager 4; Castellan Staff 4; Library Assistant 4; Bowl- 
ing Team 4. 

In her quiet way, Lee has endeared herself to the 
hearts of many of us at SMS. She has been the best 
Treasurer a class could ever have because no one 
could ever refuse her. Wedding bells will ring for 
Lee soon after a young soldier comes back from the 
war--the best of luck as a future housekeeper, Lee! 





JOAN PATRICIA COOK "Cookie" 

"They are able to accomplish anything they take in 
hand because they seem to have the power necessary 
for doing so." 

A. A. Board 2, Treasurer 3, Pres. 4; Varsity Softball 
1,2,3,4; Varsity Basketball 2,3 4; Varsity Hockey 
2,3,4; Varsity Volleyball 4; Choir 1,2; French Club 
1, Treasurer 2, Pres. 3; Council 1, Treasurer 3,4; 
May Day 1,2; May Princess 3,4; Home Ec. Club 2; 
Samadra 1,2, Pres. 4; Assembly Committee 2; King's 
Daughters Committee 3; Orientation Committee 2, 
3; Castellan Staff 2,3; Signal News 3,4; Class Treas- 
urer 3. 

With a quick smile and a twinkle in her eye, 
Cookie has gone her busy way doing a great job in 
the field of athletics and in the many organizations 
to which she belongs. 



VIRGINIA ANN DAVIS "Ginny" 

President 
"Good nature and good sense must ever join. To err 
is human; to forgive, divine." 

Varsity Basketball 3,4; Varsity Volleyball 4; Signal 
News Staff 3; Home Ec. Club V. P. 4; A. A. Board 
Sec. 4; May Day 3,4; Castellan Staff 3,4; Council 
4. 

Ginny has her own brand of sublte humor which 
never fails to bring forth a laugh from those near her. 
She doesn't believe in crossing any bridges before 
she gets to them, a trait which has enabled her to 
hold down several important positions here with ease. 
SMS is going to miss you, Ginny Davis! 





PATRICIA LOUISE FISHER "Patty" 

"The grand essentials to happiness in this life are 
something to do, something to love, and something 
to hope for." 

Council V. P. 3, Pres. 4; Home Ec. Club 3; Choir 
3,4; Samadra 3; FTA Sec. 3; A. A. Board 3,4; Social 
Committee 3; Castellan 3; Signal News 3; King's 
Daughters Committee Chairman 4; Fall Play 3; May 
Court 3; May Princess 4; Orientation Committee 4; 
Current Events Club 3. 

Patty is just the finest kind. She is the sort of per- 
son you can take your troubles to, for she will always 
understand and try to help. This understanding and 
insight has helped make Patty one of the best Student 
Council Presidents SMS has ever had. Home Ec. is 
her specialty and she plans to further her study at the 
University of Maryland next year. Here is wishing 
Patty the very best of everything in life, for she de- 
serves it. 



TOMMY RAY GARDENER "Bing" 

"Not love thy life, nor hate; but what they liv'st, 

live well." 

As one of the two male members of the Senior 
Class, Bing has managed to liven up many an hour in 
the Smoker and in the classroom. If his two years at 
SMS have made him a little philosophic on the sub- 
ject of women, we can well understand and sym- 
pathize. Next year fling plans to continue his studies 
at George Washington University. 





MARGARET OWEN GOLDSBOROUGH "Mamie" 

"The truly brave are soft of hearts and eyes and feel 

for what their duty bids them do." 
Current Events Club 3; Social Committee 3; A. A. 
Board 3, V. P. 4; Hockey Varsity 2,3,4; Home Ec. 
Club2,3; Choir 2,3,4; Court 3, 4; Class V. P. 3; Coun- 
cil V. P. 4; May Day 3,4; Orientation Committee 3, 
4. 

Marniecameto us three years ago via the Eastern 
Shore. She can feel at home anywhere there is a 
rebel flag in view and a fellow Eastern Shoreman in 
sight. During her stay at SMS, Mamie's mastery of 
words and wit brought her many friends. Studies have 
never been a worry to this Sem Fern, and with her 
sound judgment of people and eagerness to help others 
she is bound to be a success.

ELIZABETH ANN PASS "Bettie" 

Secretary 
"The game of life is looked cheerfully on when one 
carries in one's heart the inalienable treasure of 

love." 
Home Ec. Club Treasurer 3, Pres. 4; Visual Aids Com- 
mittee Chairman 4; Signal News, Editor 4, Production 
Manager 4; Social Committee 3; Library Committee 
3,4; Class Sec. 3; Court 4; A.A. 4; May Day 3. 

Bettie is a capable lass who gets things done qui- 
etly and efficiently. She has a great sense of humor 
and a nick ol saying the wrong thing at the right 
time. Bettie also has a good deal of common sense 
and can always be counted on to see things in their 
perspective--unless, of course, you get her Irish tem- 
per up. In June of '54 Bettie will become an Army 
wife and who knows but what she'll be the General's 
Lady some day! 



BETTE JEANNE SACHSE "B. J." 

"Let's have an Utopia Free from worry, free from 

care." 
Choir 3,4; Plant Committee Chairman 3; Council 3; 
Class Pres. 3; A.A. 3; May Court 4; May Day 3; Ori- 
entation Committee 4; Social Committee Chairman 
4; Castellan Editor 4. 

A lazy grin, long legs, and an intense desire to 
hit the sack are B. J. A convincing talker, B. J. has 
contrived to talk herself in and out of more scrapes 
than any of her less silver-tongued school mates, 
She intends to put this ability to good use in the field 
of law; one smile and she'll have the judge wrapped 
around her little finger.

Contest in May with the skit "My 
Double and How He Undid Him- 
self." And as a climax to a very 
succesful year , the class was re- 
presented by five members in the

In Memorium 



In memory of Dora Ann Schierholz, we the students 
of St. Mary's Seminary Junior College would like to 
dedicate this page of the 1952-53 Castellan. 

We shall always remember the sweetness and 
friendliness of our departed friend. Although we knew 
her for such a short time, her contribution to our lives 
and the many, many pleasant memories shall linger in 
our hearts always. 

In life no finer friend; in death no fonder memo- 
ries.

Student Government 



The Student Council, under the leadership of Patty Fisher , had a very 
successful year. 

Early in the semester council members were active in orienting the 
students into the way of life at St. Mary's. During the year they sponsored 
a number of assemblies ,the outstanding example being the Christmas pro- 
gram. 

S.G.A. also sponsored the May Prom following the May Day dance 
program. The couples danced under the sky of romantic Paris , and in the 
shadow of the Eiffel Tower. After the Prom a most successful social 
hour was held in the Smoker. 

The Student Council, in order to place more meaning on our honor 
system, made a revision to the Constitution of S.G.A. in 1 953. The major 
changes were the establishment of an Honor Court, the changing of court 
to House Committee, and the reclassifying of the duties of each body.

This year was an outstanding one for the Seminary Choir. Under the 
direction of Miss Jean McDougall, and accompanied by Sue Shower, the 
group gave a wide variety of programs throughout the county and state. 

A nativity pageant, "Adeste Fideles." and the annual Carol Festival 
were presented in the Music Hall and gymnasium at Christmas time , and 
in March the choir toured for three days in the Baltimore area, visiting 
seven schools. 

Two innovations for the Seminary choir this year were the Choral 
Clinic, held on campus and attended by three community choirs, and the 
Music Follies, highlighted by a hilarious Overture, and a series of in- 
terpretations of "Jack and Jill."

Athletic Association 



The Athletic Association is 
an organization designed to pro- 
mote athletic competition and to 
increase class spirit and loyalty 
toward the school. 

In line with the practical ad- 
ministration of these aims, the 
A. A. sponsors numerous dances 
for the student body during the 
year as well as many fund raising 
benefits for the welfare of the 
school as a whole. 

The A. A. has an 
extensive sports pro- 
gram and plans all 
varsity as well as in- 
tramural sports. 

The governing 
body of the organiza- 
tion is the Board, for 
which any member of 
the association is 
eligible. The Board 
consists of president, 
vice president, secre- 
tary, and treasurer, as 
well as a manager for 
each of the sports par- 
ticipated in during the 
school year.

Signal News 



Following the summer break the 
SIGNAL NEWS staff returned to the 
halls of S.M.S. a little green but en- 
thusiastic. With the new editor, Bettie 
Pass, and the staff, the activities were 
given more publicity than ever before. 
The Signal News survived various dif- 
ficulties in the first semester, with the 
staff learning by experience. The edi- 
tor for the spring semester was Liz 
Dallam, who gained much by applying 
her journalism directly to newspaper 
production. We want to thank Miss 
Truxal and the staff for what they have 
accomplished for the SIGNAL NEWS 
and S.M.S.

Samadra 



Samadra stands 
for Saint Mary's Dra- 
matics. It is the 
governing body of all 
dramatic activities 
which take part dur- 
ing the school year. 
The club sponsors the 
first school play; this 
year it was HUR- 
RICANE ISLAND. 
Later on, Samadra 
helps with the 
Christmas Pageant 
and THE BIRTH OF 
TOLERANCE, and 
also sponsors a dance 
with the Art Club. 

Samadra mem- 
bers handle make-up, props, scenery, and prompting, and -- most important 
of all -- run errands during production times. "Acting ability isn't necessary 
in order to belong to Samadra," to quote Miss Elliott, the club sponsor. "All 
that is needed is an ability to work hard."

sponsor, Miss 

Harms, promoted 
numerous activities. 
Soap sculpture, 
leather work (such as 
making wallets), clay 
modelling, and all 
types of sketching 
kept the girls occu- 
pied during the year. 
The Art Club, to- 
gether with Samadra, 
sponsored one of the 
most successful in- 
formal dances during 
the school year. The 
club plans in the fu- 
ture to make field trips to the various art galleries in the Washington area. 
They also will make sketching trips to the waterfronts.

Court 




The year 1952- 
1953 was successful 
for the Court of the 
Student Government 
Association. Marnie 
Goldsborough, vice- 
president of S. G.A., 
servedas judge. The 
rest of Court was 
made up of permanent 
members represent- 
ing the classes, two 
rotating members 

who served for three 
week intervals, one 
rotating f a c u 1 1 y 

member and the ad- 
visor, Miss Clutts. 

The court saw that 
rules were upheld and dealt with all infringements in a way to help the individ- 
uals develop good school habits. 

During the last six weeks of school, Court worked with other branches of 
S. G. A. to effectively establish the changes in Student Government, making it 
a more important body than it had been previously.

successful one. Miss 
Chance was the club 
advisor and the pres- 
ident was Florence 
Hiser. The girls took 
a field trip to Doctors 
Hospital in Washing- 
ton, D. C, and it 
proved to be an edu- 
cational as well as an 
enjoyable experi- 

ence.

Volleyball 

This year volley- 
ball was a varsity 
sport and the team 
played in a tourna- 
ment at Majorie 
Webster. It was also 
played at S. M. S. as 
an intramural sport 
and the highlight of 
the season was a 
game between the 
faculty and the winner 
of the class tourna- 
ments. It proved to 
be a terrific game 
and the students won, 
of course !

Hurricane Island 

Samadra's annual fall production for 
1952 was "HURRICANE ISLAND," a 
children's theatre presentation directed 
by Miss Elliott. The plot concerned 
Pilgrim, a small boy, played by Peggy 
Gillespie, and his gradual acceptance 
on Hurricane Island by Madame Vandee- 
vender, played by Linda Lou Long, 
and her two children, Sue Cetnarowski 
and Faye Seifert. Other members of 
the cast included Tay Parrott as Gypsy 
Joe, and Mary Holman as The Captain. 
An unusual feature of "HURRICANE 
ISLAND" was the "working set," which 
boasted a house, an alarm bell, a wind- 
mill that pumped, and a real hurricane 
complete with wind and storm effects.

Birth of Tolerance Pageant 



The Calverts and the party of 
Pilgrims arrive on the shores of 
Mary's Land led by Father 
White. The settlers are greet- 
ed by Chief Werowance. The 
friendly Indians give the set- 
tlers gifts of corn and fowl. 





This is the Calvert drawing room where plans 
are proposed for the settlement of Mary's Land. 
Toasts are being made by the Calverts to the 
success of the journey and to the settlement of 
the new land. 



Margaret Brent pleads for the 
right for women to vote. She 
is voicing her opinions before 
the Governor and Council of 
the colony.

Christmas Pageant 



This year's Christmas Pageant was done to the tempo of music. The 
College Choir under the direction of Miss McDougall furnished the music 
while the cast under the direction of Miss Elliott adeptly presented the story 
of the birth of Christ. Over half of the school was in the cast while the re- 
mainder served on 

One performance was 
given, followed by the 
Christmas Choir 

Festival. This was 
held in the Gym by 
candlelight where we 
were host to several 
neighboring com- 

munity choirs.

May Queen Joan Cook was crowned by Admiral Pride on May 9- Her 
Court consisted of two Senior princesses, Patty Fisher and B. J. Sachse; one 
Junior princess, Doris Clough; two Sophomore princesses, Patricia Chandler 
and Florence Hiser; and one Freshman princess, Faye Seifert. Peggy Booth 
was Maid of Honor, being our representative to the Shenendoah Apple Blossom 
Festival. The Queen's attendants were Jean and Jill Meyers as train bearers 
and Christopher Lepper as crown bearer. 

"The Sleeping Beauty" was the theme of the modern dance program. It 
was presented to the Queen and her Court and the audience as a dance inter- 
pretation of the classic fairy tale. The soloists were Sue Cetnarwoski as the 
Princess Aurora and Cheron Blackasthe Prince. The modern dance classes 
made up the rest of the cast and Barbara VanDevanter was the announcer for 
the entire program.

The Castellan 



In our earnest efforts to give you a bigger and -- we hope -- bet- 
ter yearbook, the Castellan staff stubbed its toe on several treacher- 
ous deadlines and missed its hoped-for delivery date. But we sin- 
cerely hope your copy will seem the more precious to you, reflecting 
as it does the life of the Seminary in both its rush hours and its 
leisure. B. J. Sachse was editor-in-chief of the '53 Castellan staff; 
Florence Atkinson, assistant editor; Gail Harbold, layout, and Pat 
Chandler, assistant; Lee Breckendridge, business manager; Barbara 
Van Devanter, photography; Sue Cetnarowski, copy; Virginia Davis,
