1941 - "Old Rival Atkinson"

January

This was a busy active month at St. Mary's. Under the leadership of the alumnae officers a series of parties was held for the repairs so much needed in several places. First came the laundry. The old mangle was so badly warped that clothes couldn’t go through it straight anymore. A fine new mangle of a newer type was purchased and put into immediate use. Second, was the organ in the chapel. The old organ was so worn out that it stopped completely. A new Estey was purchased and it will serve for many years. Third, was the repairs in the kitchen. We had to have metal put on the ceiling and walls and then the room had to be painted. It is now a place we are proud to show to visitors.

Our basketball boys brought home a trophy we wanted very much to win. Our old rival, Atkinson, really expected to win that trophy. It is not saying too much to say that there was perhaps a little more than just "natural satisfaction” when we won THAT trophy.

One Saturday afternoon in January Mother surprised us with desks in our study room. The teachers are truly grateful for this much needed improvement.

Late in January Sister Eustacia had to go to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Alliance to undergo an operation for appendicitis; after two weeks Sister returned to us and was soon at her post, faithful and cheerful.

February

The Mission Bazaar, which has become an annual activity looked forward to by the classes of the high school and grades with zealous joy, was scheduled for February tenth. The booths for candy, fish pond, bingo, novelty, etc., were erected by members of the different classes and the competition was keen; the net total realized was $203.00 all of which was used for home and foreign mission activities.

Vocation week at St. Mary's fell the week of February tenth. The main feature of the week was an afternoon devoted to symposium. Rt. Rev. Monsignor McNamara spoke on the call to the priesthood; Mother Virginia addressed the assembly on the religious life; Doctor Brown outlined the essential requisites of a good surgeon and a medical career; the county superintendent, Miss Elja McCullough, in her talk on the rural teacher emphasized the spirit necessary for success as a teacher in the rural districts of Nebraska; Mrs., Hugh Coyne spoke beautifully of the vocation of Catholic Mothers; the rancher attracted great attention and inspired the pupils by the enthusiasm with which he talked of his profession; Mrs. Frank Froelich explained briefly the work of a nurse.

The following week Rev, Father McDonald, S.J. conducted the retreat for the high school pupils. Father was well pleased with the attitude of the children and with the response to his suggestions.

…Her example and instructions gave us courage to go on striving for perfection, and working for God.

The seniors gave as their assembly program a rather difficult play “The Flame Leaps Up”. It was well done considering the difficulties under which it had to be given.

March

Sister Mildred's class held an assembly the first week in March. They dramatized, the nursery rhymes; all enjoyed a period, with the second grade and their favorite Mother Goose selections. At half-past four the same little ones surprised us by singing the Latin hymns for Benediction in the convent chapel.

Sisters who have been stationed here will be able to recall the feud that has existed between the towns of O'Neill and Atkinson this entailed intense excitement this year when the basketball tournament scheduled St. Mary's against Atkinson Public School for the final district play. The game was played in the O’Neill Public School Auditorium where our boys do all their practicing and play all the home games. St. Mary's were the victors. The following week they were off to Lincoln for the State Tournament. The Alumnae Association made arrangements for the girls of the pep club to accompany the team. Father Parr, the director of the boy’s athletics. Jack Arbuthnot, the coach and the chaperons of each car were responsible for the group. The experience gained and the pleasure of the trip more than satisfied for the sacrifices involved.

St. Patrick's Program this year was a marked success. The spirit of Ireland prevailed and the Joy and lilt of Irish dancing and song with impersonations filled the evening.

April

The spring musical contest at Atkinson was entered into with enthusiasm by the band members and the music students. This initial contest held each year prepares the children for participation in the district contest. Our pupils rated well, especially George Hammond who received great praise for his vocal ability.

The main activity for April was the Lenten Play; this year Father Lord's "Fantasy of the Passion" was selected. Sister Antonella prepared the actors; a rather gifted senior, Robert Parkins, had the lead; it was staged in the public school auditorium and the results were gratifying in every way. The main objective of this annual Lenten Play each year is to instill a devotion to the passion of our Savior, and we have every hope that great good in this line was done this year.

St. Mary's Academy and O'Neill Public School were selected assenters for the State District Musical Contest. All the solos and the small chorus groups were scheduled at the academy; the band numbers and the large chorus numbers were accommodated in the public school. There were 1500 contestants in O’Neill that day besides the students of the two O'Neill high schools, St. Mary's pupils did well. The weather was most unfavorable especially in the afternoon. The storm prevented several schools from sending delegates and other schools had a bad time getting here. The officers and contestants were well pleased with the arrangements made for them, and the whole contest was a great satisfaction in spite of the weather.

May

During the month of May our dear Lord called the mothers of two of our Sisters to Himself. Sister Mildred was called home for her last visit and to the death of her dear mother on May 4th. She returned knowing that her dear mother had but a short time to live, the following week she received the telegram. Sister Antonella's mother had been dangerously ill for some months, and during her long illness, Sister being so near home, was allowed to visit her mother several times for an hour each time. It was a consolation to both, but hard for Sister to witness her dear ones suffering. Word came on May 16 that death had summoned her dear mother.  Sister Jolenta came from the Mission and the two Sisters attended the funeral.

On May 12th the Juniors entertained the Seniors with a banquet; the banquet theme was patriotic and the decorations did service for the remaining activities for the grade and high school closing exercises. Father Ostiek visited the school on his inspection trip on the day of the banquet and expressed his pleasure and satisfaction with St. Mary's.

On Saturday morning May tenth, a meeting was held in the public school with reference to the contemplated change in the high school curriculum; representatives from the University of Nebraska, from Omaha, from the O'Neill Public School and from St, Mary's took part in the discussions. We found the attitudes and the suggestions of the different educators interesting and instructive.

The Knights of Columbus held Initiation in O'Neill on Sunday May 18th. At the close 169 members were served at a banquet in our gym.

On the same Sunday forty little children made their First Holy Communion. The services were simple and beautiful.

On May 20th the grade school held Field Day on the campus; each class took part in competitive games and awards were given. The band played and a good spirit of sportsmanship was exhibited. On the evening of May 20th, the Seniors staged their annual class play. The performance was well attended and gave satisfaction to all.

On May 21st, the beautiful May crowning exercises were held in our park; Mildred O'Malley, a Senior, was elected student queen with the privilege of placing a crown of flowers on the statue of our Lady. The seniors (girls) were dressed in their blue graduation dresses; the other girls in light or white dresses; after the May exercises in the park the procession went to church where Benediction was given.

Class picnics were held this year on our own premises by the younger children; in the City Park, by the Elk Horn River, at Oakview and in different groves by the high school classes.

The grade school closing exercises took place on May 23rd. Each class was represented on the program; awards and merits were distributed by Rt. Rev. Monsignor McNamara who gave a very encouraging talk to the faculty and students.

The Alumnae reunion opened this year with High Mass on the morning of May 25th. Many of the former students returned to spend the day at the academy and with friends in O'Neill. The banquet was well attended in the evening.

The pupils who had Superior rating in the music contest were permitted to go to St. Paul, Minn, to take part in the National Contest. The people of O'Neill again financed the trip. The two schools gave a joint music program and the interested mothers gave a bake sale. The proceeds of these two activities together with a collection among the business men made an amount sufficient to send a delegation of twenty-five to the contest. Robert Parkins succeeded in winning a second rating in the trombone section.

Senior class night was scheduled for the evening of May 29th. Thirty-three Seniors took part in the exercises.

On the morning of May 30th graduation exercises took place in St. Patrick's Church; thirty—three high school graduates, eleven boys and twenty-two girls received high school diplomas; twenty-four eighth grade pupils received eighth grade diplomas. Rev. Peter Burke delivered the baccalaureate sermon. After the exercises the children left St. Mary's for the summer. It was evening before all the boarders had gone home and the quiet of vacation had settled on St. Mary’s.

On May 31st. Sisters Maxine and Edward left us for St. Francis Mission to make their annual retreat.

The vacation schools started on Pentecost Sunday. Sisters Fides and Flores went to Ewing; Sisters Antonella and Serafica to Plainview; Sisters Xavier and Arthur to St. John's. On Monday Sisters Electa and Eustacia took the long drive to Amelia and Mother and Sister Dolores the shorter drive to Emmet. These two drives were a daily affair and the Amelia drive was especially long and hard. On Tuesday Mother Boniface and Sister Emily arrived from Denver to help us. We are more than grateful to them for making the long trip here after a hard school year. The vacation schools were successful in several ways: The pastors and the children were satisfied, and several souls were brought back to the church. There were many interesting incidents connected with each school and there is good natured rivalry among the Sisters in regard to the quality of each school. In fact, the work is very hard and it was especially hard this year because the weather was so cold and wet, and also because the accommodations are still primitive or lacking entirely. Trying to teach 80 children in a small church with both Sisters talking at the same time, the children sitting on the kneeling benches using the seats for desks, is no easy matter.  We are still very much in the missionary stage.

Even before the close of vacation school, the teachers had to leave for college. Sisters Fides and Antonella went to Creighton, Sister Mildred to the State Teachers College in Minot, Sister Arthur, to Davenport, Iowa, Sister Flores had hoped to go to Leavenworth, Kansas, but instead of that she had to undergo a gall bladder operation at Alliance,

On June 21st Sisters Edmunda and Christiana left for St. Paul, Minn. to attend the Eucharistic Congress.  When they returned they told us how impressed they were by the kindness and hospitality of the Sisters with whom they stayed. The Congress itself was inspiring. Even hearing about it filled us with renewed zeal. The rain at the close of the congress seemed to be regarded by all as a real blessing.

During the summer months we had to make a few repairs, especially in the basement corridor. The walls were made white again and the wood work was painted a cream color, and a light colored linoleum was put on the floor. The old stairs called “Sister Catherine's stairs" is now the "golden stairs".  She would enjoy them as much as we do if she were here. The west side of the gym had to have a new wall and the celling had to be made white. The social room also needed a new ceiling. But not all our work was put on walls and ceilings. The tables in the refectory lost a few coats or layers of varnish that had covered them and a new varnish was put on them. During the time the tables were being done over we "dined" out. Sister Electa entertained us in the library; Sister Maxine invited us to the studio, and Sister Dolores and Electa had a nice surprise for us in the social room. We even had lunch a few times in the little dining room when there were "beans" to do. We enjoyed our lunches on the extra occasions.

July

Our changes began in July. Sister Jeanette was the first one on the list. She intended to leave immediately for Stella, but instead she went to Sioux City to the hospital and had to stay there for three weeks. As soon as she was able to travel she went to Stella to take up her new work there. Next came Sisters Antonella and Edward. They were transferred to Minot, but stayed with us until after retreat. Our last change was Sister Elegia who was called to the hospital in Mino. Our good wishes go with our dear ones. May God love and bless them all.

August

On August 5th, Sister Laurissa arrived from summer school to join our high school faculty and on the 8th. Sister Goara came from Denver to be our new cook. Sister Anthony came after working at Marycrest and took over the Sisters sewing.

Among the very pleasant things this summer were the…. in the garden. We arranged tables that could be left out… gathered dishes from various places. We got a few strips of oil cloth for the tables and that completed our preparations. Each evening after spiritual reading we went to the kitchen, picked up the dishes and marched out to the garden. It was delightful out there in the cool shade. The food tasted much better too. We even had breakfast out there twice on grossers.

On August 10th, Father Sandoval, S.J. arrived from Denver to give our retreat. We had heard much about him and so we were especially eager to make his retreat. It was the best retreat many of us have ever made because it was so solid, so definite and so practical. Even the band on O’Neill Day could not distract us, and although as they passed the academy they played "Hail, Hail, The Gang’s All Here". The retreat was far more attractive than the parade so we let the parade go by. We wish that every Sister may have a chance to make a retreat under Father Sandoval. Even the weather was ideal. It had been hot before retreat, but during that week it was delightfully cool.

Two of our St. Mary's graduates, Sisters Bartholomew and Carmen stopped to visit us on their way to Alliance. They brought us a little news from the east and from the normal. We are always glad to welcome company to St. Mary's.

The Alumnae furnished the means for our annual picnic again this year. We went to Shoemaker's to enjoy a day of rest and quiet under the old trees. Georgie and Sharlene entertained us royally with balls and wagons and likewise entertained themselves with a box of peppermints which we placed at their disposal. It was a lovely day.

September

Even though it was Labor Day, the day students had to come to register for the new term. It took a long time and a great deal of adjustment to get them all settled. As every administrator knows, it is not the regular students who cause all the work; it is the odd fellows, the ones who have come in from other schools, or who have missed subjects. These are the things which give a principal gray hair under their bonnets. When the last pupil had been dismissed, we Sisters decided to have a grand evening in the north garden. We built a little oven at which we could roast wien over the fire and have a regular outdoor picnic. Some Sisters who said they could not eat wieners roasted over the fire changed their minds as the savory aroma began to fill the air, and somehow two or three wieners disappeared gently. After supper we sat around the table in candle light and sang songs and talked. It was our last free evening and a lovely close to a grand summer.

The next morning the boarders began to arrive. The number grew to fifty and kept on increasing until good Sister Goara was getting desperate for food for so many at once. There was the usual lugging of suit cases, bundles and bedding: the ordinary amount of tears; the surreptitious scheming of the “old boarders" to get all the places of vantage for themselves, until night settled on our little world and put an end to the first big day.

Mass in honor of the Holy Ghost was offered at 8 o'clock on September 3rd. After Mass, Monsignor came over to promote the children, beginning with the first grade and on up to the last. Everyone knows that Monsignor does not like long ceremonies, and everyone knows that he is going to forget his glasses every year so that he cannot read the names, and still the same little formula is gone through each year, and no doubt, will be gone through as long as Monsignor is here. When the last class was settled Monsignor met the new pupils and school was over for the day.

God blessed St. Mary's with three postulants this year. Two others were held back by their parents and will have to wait a year or so. The postulants are always a curiosity to the students as soon as they are dressed as postulants. A crowd gathers to see them off; pictures are taken; and the girls ride off in their little blaze of glory. God grant them the grace to persevere.

Our commercial department continues to increase. In order to accommodate the classes this year it was necessary to begin teaching at 8:15 A.M. and continue until 5:40 P.M. O'Neill is not a large town and there would not seem to be positions enough for all who want commercial work; and yet the demand is there and we have to meet it,

God came to our aid in a wonderful way during this month. We had been negotiating for some time in regard to our big smoke stack. No one in town would take the Job. We tried in the surrounding towns and finally found a company that would do it for $3100.00.  We were sickened by the thought of that much money which we did not have and by the fact that the smoke stack had to be repaired. Finally we got a builder from Omaha who would put the smoke stack in good condition for $ 1500.00. We still did not have the money, so God sent a good non-Catholic man to us with a check for $500.00. This man came from Lawrence, Mass. and was on a visit here. He was so impressed with the academy that he said he would send another $500.00 when he got home. He did not wait until he got home. He gave it before he left. That made $1000.00. Then a man in town here who had been wanting to give a donation to the academy, sent up a check for $500.00! That settled the smoke stack question and shows that God takes care of worn out chimneys even on the Nebraskan prairies.

October

Ever since the park has been in existence we have wanted a statue of Our Lady placed in it. Of course we did not have the money to get the statue, so the pupils have been saving for three years in order to pay for it. This year we saw our way clear to get the statue and pay for it a little at a time. The statue arrived on the feast of our holy Father St. Francis, but could not be put up for a week because a cement foundation had to be put under it. The frost line is five feet deep in Nebraska. We had planned a nice celebration for the blessing of the statue and for the dedication of the park, but we had to postpone it until spring on account of inclement weather. The statue is beautiful. We are looking forward to many loving visits to Our Lady when we take our evening walks to the park.

At the end of the first six weeks it was evident that a few of the high school students would not be able to keep up their grades in certain subjects. In order to accommodate them and prevent their failing, a new class was opened in Economic Geography. The pupils seem to be able to grasp such material better than they can the abstract matter, and at the same time they are saved the feeling of inferiority. The class means more work, but we believe that it is worth it.

Sister Serafica has suffered many years from a pain in her back. She fell and broke a little bone but the break could never be located. This summer the pain got so bad that a specialist had to be consulted again. He found the break and operated to remove the bone from Sister’s spine. It is an immense relief to Sister after all these years to be able to sit on a chair and to walk without pain. God blessed the operation with great success.

The teachers went to Norfolk again this year to attend the State Teachers' Convention. The speakers and entertainers were about as good as the ones last year; there were many more Sisters attending; and there was a Jesuit on the program. We did not hear much new in the discussions, but we met many people and many Sister who are working under greater difficulties than we are, We heard some very good music by the united bands of the district and the united glee clubs of the district. There were fine displays of book movie machines, and all kinds of school supplies. We got some ideas although we did not have money enough to buy all the attractive things on the tables. The weather was ideal and we thoroughly enjoyed the seventy-five mile ride.

November

The Alumnae Association under the leadership of Mrs. Julia Barrett (Sullivan) made plans to conduct a series of parties for the benefit if the Academy again this year. The activities started with a supper, bingo and dance on Sunday, November 9th, Mrs. Barrett certainly had everything well planned and organized. The whole evening went very smoothly. A big crowd attended and seemed well pleased with everything. It was remarked that people who probably never before set foot into the building come to the academy now. They do not seem to be afraid to come to a dinner or a party while they might hesitate to come for something else. The Alumnae took charge of everything and they have been very generous in helping us pay our expenses.

On November 16th, the Knights of Columbus had their second initiation for this year. They asked us to serve the banquet in the Gym.  We got everything organized but the MEN.  We had no way of finding out how many there would be.  We prepared for 160 thinking that would easily take care of the crowd.  Imagine our feelings when 190 crowded into the hall and others had to be sent away.  We finally got them all settled and for once they really cleaned up the plates.  They must have liked the baked ham and we learned that O’Neill can draw a crowd.

The music department chose the operetta, “When the Moon Rises” for the Cecelia Program.  The members of the cast were not the only ones waiting for the “moon” to rise.  That operetta was what is called a “headache” until the very day it was put on.  Somehow or other the children did not get the spirit until the very [end], but when they did, they really put on the operetta well.  Those are the things which add more gray hairs under bonnets.

Monsignor said he felt ashamed that he had never done anything for the choir.  He asked us to prepare a treat for the members of the choir and he and Father Parr came over to enjoy a delicious supper with them.  Monsignor gave a talk expressing his admiration for St. Cecelia and his thanks to the choir, and gave each member a box of candy to finish the evening.

School closed at noon on Wednesday for Thanksgiving vacation.  Besides our dinner, we enjoyed a long sleep and a little rest.  The weather was most pleasant and the rest was really appreciated.

December

The huge task of spending a quarter for St. Nicholas had to be completed before December 1st, or the good Bishop would not have time to fill all the orders.  Many recreations had to be spent thumbing catalogs and changing ideas, but St. Nicholas finally got everything settled and came as usual on December 6th with the little surprises dear to our Franciscan hearts.

We shall not forget Sunday December 7th for many years to come.  We were preparing for Mother’s feast day and for the Sodality reception when flashes of the war came in.  A feeling of fear gripped us and up a cloud over our joy.  Nevertheless, we went on with our celebrations.  The refectory was beautifully done in a blue and white winter scene.  The center was a shrine of Our Lady.  In spite of the war we enjoyed the feast and did some extra praying for peace.

On December 8th the high school students assembled for reception of new members into the Sodality.  The chapel was beautifully decorated with chrysanthemums.  Father Parr gave a good talk on the obedience of the Blessed Virgin, and then received the candidates into the sodality.  The girls in white dresses and veils and the boys in dark suits made a good impression.  How we wish we could keep them innocent and pure as they are now! After the services the pupils enjoyed a treat as only healthy youngsters can.  May God and our Blessed Lady keep them from harm.

The class rooms at St. Mary’s assume a very different appearance as the Christmas time draws near.  Desks are rearranged, walls are decorated, trees grow up overnight, names are drawn for the exchange of gifts, and a little air of mystery and whispering pops out everywhere.  Then on the closing day, carols are sung, the gifts are distributed and the pupils go home feeling light-hearted and gay.  Only one big girl was left with us this vacation so the Sisters were entirely free from surveillance for two weeks.  A little extra sleep with the extra recreations put everyone in a good condition for the New Year.

The best treat of the Christmas vacation was the day of retreat conducted by Rev. Father Sandoval, S. J., from Regis College, Denver.  He conducted our annual retreat for us in August and he was so practical and so helpful that we asked and obtained permission for the last day of the year.  We followed the order of the day used in the big retreat.  It is to be feared that we shall not be satisfied with anything less after the wonderful treat of that day.  In all we had six meditations.

During this month one of our boarder girls, Darla Davis whose religious training had been much neglected, made her first Communion.  The sodality officers acted as little guards of honor for her, and after Mass the children offered gifts in the dining room in order to make the event as pleasant and as memorable as possible.  Another pupil, Dorothy Lewis, was baptized and made her first Holy Communion in church.

And thus the year of 1941 drew to a close.  God has been very, very good to us, and although we are under a cloud of war, we shall place our trust in Him – He has provided and He will continue to provide.
