What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

6 THE MONMAL. IN MEMORIAM. This spring the Senior class has felt, for the first time, the sorrow of losing one of its members. And the sorrow has not been confined to the ranks of the Senior class; for Loretto Mc­ Carthy had endeared herself to all whom she met. She was a girl whom we were all proud to count as one of our friends, and the news of her death came as a blow to everyone in the school. It seems impossible that one who had made for herself such an important place in our hearts is gone forever. Yet we all feel that Loretto is not really gone. Her influence is with us still and pervades the school. We feel the presence of her unusual personality in every activity of the school. There has been hardly a school movement, throughout last year or this year that has not felt the inspiration of her energy, enthusiasm, and ability. Not only was she extraordinarily capable of doing many fine things; but, a better proof of her character, she did them. Although we cannot help but grieve deeply at the death of one of our finest schoolmates, we can all feel that at least we knew her well, and that in knowing her as we did we gained much that will never leave us; for Loretto had not only a magnetic personality, but a wonderfully generous nature, and a fine, strong character. Here we pay loving tribute to one of our dearest school comrades, who now lives only in our hearts, but who has indeed found a lasting abiding place there.
