NOTE TO THE STAFF:
To The Staff:
We the editors of this year's "CASTELLAN" would like to express appreciation to all
the staff members who have worked so hard to make this yearbook a success. Only
through your hard work and effort was it possible to produce this finished product. We
look upon this yearbook as a cumulative success because we feel it has partially cap-
tured the spirit and life here at St. Mary's. To Miss Perkins, our annual advisor, we
give our thanks for the advice and help she has given us. In conclusion, congratula-
tions for a job well done and to the graduates success and best wishes.

To compete with the acute shortage of engineering
personnel the Naval Air Test Center at Patuxent
River offered a solution. The Test Center instituted
a program known as the Patuxent Plan of Career
Development which recruited qualified persons from
the local area. These students, known to the campus
as the classes of '60, '61, '62, are undergoing train-
ing which will develop them into competent en-
gineers over a period of five years.

Music Hall Scene
The Annual pageant "The Birth of Toler-
ance" is presented every year by the student
body at St. Mary's. Every person in school
contributes to the success of this venture,
either thru the acting or by helping with
props, make-up or some other backstage
job. The Pageant was written by David
Turnburk to commemorate the founding of
the colony of Maryland and is presented
continuously for three days, on six loca-
tions on our campus. The first scene takes
place on Gallow's Green where an intro-
ductory speech is given. The visitors are
then taken by a guide to the Music Hall
where the scene is set in England.
Lord Arundel and the Calverts discuss the
possibility of getting a grant of land from
the King. The charter is granted to Leo-
nard Calvert and the name "Terrae Maria"
is decided upon for the colony.
The second scene in the Music Hall shows
the settlers preparing to leave for the
colony in the New World. The scene is
then shifted to the hill overlooking the banks
of the St. Mary's River. The settlers are
shown after landing in the Ark and the Dove
encountering the Indians for the first time.
A treaty is made with the Indians and Father
Andrew White offers a blessing. Panorama
and color are added thru the colorful Indian
dancers. The next spot on the Pageant tour
is the Calvert Memorial, erected to honor

the family which did so much to establish
the colony and to help it thru the trouble-
some beginning days. The statehouse scene
is enacted next, in a replica of the original
building. These scenes, the dramatic high-
lights of the pageant, show the Maryland
Assembly meeting under Governor Calvert.
After Calvert's death Governor Greene
takes over the responsibilities of the colony
and with the aid of Mistress Margaret Brent
saves the settlers from invasion of savages.
Mistress Margaret Brent demands the right
to vote with the members of the Assembly
and makes an impassioned appeal to the
members. Her appeal is denied, Margaret
Brent is not given a vote although she had
done much toward the establishment of the
The following scene shows Wenlock Christ-
ison after his flight from the New England
colonies in search of religious freedom. He
is welcomed by the friendly farmers and
settlers of Maryland and is offered a home.
The final scene shows an Assembly Meeting
in which it is decided to move the capital
of Maryland from St. Mary's City to Anne
Arundel Town. The settlers left St. Mary's
and the capital of our state has been Anna-
polis ever since. The Pageant performance
ends with a rendition of "Maryland, My
GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS"
The Music Department, under the direction of Mr. Brantley Greeson, presented four performances of
"Girls Will Be Girls." The cast consisted of members of the Glee Club and the light and gay operetta
was a great success. CASTELLAN members were on the production staff and the yearbook received a
share of the profit.
The Candlelight Service is the highlight of the
annual Carol Festival. The "Spirit of Christmas"
lights tile candles of the various choir members.
The whole room is soon filled with light as the
entire audience joins in singing.
One of the highest honors a
girl at S.M.S.J.C. can attain is
to be chosen as the Spirit of
Christmas. The student so
honored for 1957 was Doris
