PHOENIX: Fabulous Arabian bird. Emblem of

solar or fire worship. It supposedly

great age,

lives to a

at which time it burns itself to ashes

and after three days comes to life again. Thus, it

is symbolic of immortaHty, rejuvenation, self-

immolation. It appears alone, without mate or

companions. Figuratively, a person of singular

or superlative excellence, a prodigy.


Its advent heralds an auspicious

event; its departure foretells a

calamity. It is symbolic of abundance,

beauty, prosperity and re-birth.

The dedication of a yearbook

^'*^iV%f-l

must reflect the interaction of the entire

community. Such tribute should be to those who have touched

the moments or days of our lives. Thus,

we dedicate

Phoenix to each of those who have lessened a

moment of crisis or shared an hour

of happiness. Thank you.

So closely interwoven have been our lives.

Our purposes, and experiences,

That separated, we have a feeling of

incompleteness.

United, such strength of self assertion,

that no ordinary obstacles,

differences, or dangers

ever appear to us insurmountable.

Freshmen Varieties Make the Grade

Every year terror-stricken freshmen are

herded into the gym with only a vague idea of

what lies ahead. And each year, they emerge a

little wiser, not so terror-stricken, and a little

closer to each other. As a matter of fact, this

year's freshmen look like they're having a

pretty good time. The vote was close, but the

Upperclassmen decided to pass freshmen Va

rieties once again.

trials and tribulations, is always a success. Men from miles around flock to

it's beer but

who ever heard of wine, women and beer?). This year's Spring 'Weekend

was brought to you by Cyndi Steele and Katie Kittle along with their

SPRING WEEKEND .

. . 1979

139


Mount Vernon was treated to an adventure in theatre this

year with the production of Jack Heifner's 'Vanities."

Produced by Marilys Ernst and Cunain Callers, the play

was directed by Andrew Pyne, a graduate student in

theatre at Catholic University. "Vanities" is concerned

with the lives of three somewhat confused, somewhat so

cially non-conscious young women who grew up in the

sixties. The three stages of the play find them first in high

school concerned only with cheerleading, boys and popu

larity; in college, concerned only with sorority, boys and

popularity; and then reunited briefly at a New York

apartment as they are turning thiny, a Httle older, a little

wiser and a little different. "Kathy," played by Mirra Pren

dergast (center cheerleader) ended up searching for

something with some meaning. "Mary," portrayed by

Sarah Smith (cheerleader at right) became a thirty-year

old world traveller and the somewhat bitter and over

sexed owner of a pornographic art gallery. And "

"Joanne,

the girl who never quite grew up but nonetheless married

the boy of her dreams was brought to Ufe by Nancy Rob-

140

bins (cheerleader at left). The three girls are friends

throughout their lives, so much so that they can never

of time. Their de

remember being apart for any length

pendence on each other is touching and somewhat sad as

their last act of sharing is Joanne's husband, Ted.

The tennis team finished the season with a record of 8 wins and four

record. On

Saturday, April 28, 1979, the Women's Capital Collegiate Tennis Tour

Rosenblatt (no. 2) and Margaret McBee (no. 3) represented Mount 'Ver

Martha Broeker as the No. 1 team and Susie Rammel and Lauren Venuto

as the No. 2 team represented the College. In an exciting match, Tina and

Martha beat the St. Mary's team to win the tournament title in the dou
