"Life at La Salle College"



Beautiful La Salle! Expanding La Salle! Indeed there is a sure reason for
her existence. The external beauty which reflects life at La Salle College is
only a means used in attaining our ultimate end. The theme of the 1956
EXPLORER centers around the "Imitation of Christ" by Thomas a Kempis.
The author tells us how our end can be reached: ". . . he who would fully
and feelingly understand the words of Christ, must study to make his whole life
conformable to that of Christ."

^eJmim



A man in a white robe, designated as the new
chaplain to the La Salle College student body,
began his residence here in January, 195 3. The
tall, lanky, bespectacled Dominican is in the per-
son of Rev. Mark Heath, O.P., a religiously-de-
voted and humorous Bostonian.

The arrival of Father Heath brought with it an
abundance of religious activities. A constant flow
of Masses, Communions, Benedictions and Confes-
sions were continually at our disposal for our spir-
itual betterment. Moreover, Father Heath, as a
teacher of philosophy and full-time counselor,
never bothered to utter a sigh about his numerous
duties. His time was given unselfishly to the



students. It was not unusual to see him talking
to a group of boys while bidding the time of day
to others, for his repertoire of names appeared un-
limited.

To Father Mark Heath, we, the Class of '56,
dedicate the 1956 EXPLORER. The guidance
and inspiration which he has shed upon us can
ne'er be forgotten.

We have utilized the exhortation of Thomas
a Kempis in the "Imitation of Christ" when he
said: "Consult with a wise and conscientious man,
and seek rather to be instructed by one who is
better than to follow thine own inventions."




Under this ivy-shrouded cove pass the
Christian Brothers on their journey to
and from classes. The three storied
building is the home of the Brothers at
LaSalle College.

College Hall with its sturdy tower
personifies LaSalle. The heart of the
college, this building houses the ad-
ministration, faculty^ classrooms, and
laboratories.




Members of the Class of 1956:

It is with a sense of pleasure that I write
this word of congratulations and encourage-
ment to you, the members of the class of '56,
for your capable leadership and with a sense
of gratitude for the many worthy lessons
you have left us.

The leadership and inspiration of the class
of '56 lifted many above the status of
ordinary students extremely conservative
about their own capacities and ever fear-
ful to assume responsibilities. You were
intelligent and mature enough to see signifi-
cant relationships between academic interests
and social activities and as a result taught
many that studies must not remain un-
motivated and campus activities irrespons-
ible and uninformed.

It is my sincere hope that you will con-
tinue to be leaders among the worthy citi-
zens of the city of man so that one day you
will "live" among the privileged citizens of
the city of God.

Sincerely,

Brother Daniel Bernian, F.S.C.
(Vice-President)



Brother E. Stanislaus, F.S.C, Ph.D.
President



A Message from the President:

"... I wish to take advantage of this
opportunity to compliment the students for
the magnificent manner in which the activ-
ities of the school year have been carried
out to date. Such functions as the Har-
vest Dance, the R.O.T.C. Ball, the Mili-
tary Mass on the Feast of St. Barbara, the
productions of the Masque, the religious ac-
tivities sponsored by the Benilde Club, the
Fine Arts exhibits — it is understandably im-
possible to list all — have been carried
through in a manner highly complimentary
to the students and very satisfying to the
faculty. This is indicative of a seriousness
and dignity of purpose which is laudatory.
Brother E. Stanislaus, F.S.C."

STUDENT COUNCIL



The Student Council, under the leadership of
President Jack Lombard, did a masterful job in
fulfilUng its purpose of unifying student-faculty
efforts. The Executive Board, composed of oflS-
cers from campus organizations, and the newly
created Residence Hall Council, have been inval-
uable assets to the Student Council in reahzing the
amiable unification of the entire student body.



Answering a plea from an alum-
nus on duty in Korea, La Salle
students flooded the Library

and forgotten suits. These three
determined gentlemen made use

for a fe^w people.

consists of four officers and elected representatives from each class. The units of the organization
are the Constitution Committee, the Policy Committee, and the Membership Committee.



STUDENT CONGRESS



The Student Congress of the Evening Division,
formed in 1949, acts as the official representative
of the student body to the faculty and adminis-
tration. The purpose of the Congress is to culti-
vate, promote, and manage all extra-curricular



affairs; to promote the general welfare of the
students and of La Salle College; and to act as
an advisory body between the students and the
administration.



Officers of the Student Congress grant the flo

THE COLLEGIAN




Interest centers on Al Butrym, Collegian Editor-
in-chief, as he maps the strategy for a forthcom-
ing issue of the school's newspaper.

unfolding from columnist Jim Dougherty's type-

Collegian staff members.




The responsibility for the weekly appearance of
the 195 5-5 6 Collegian fell to Alexander Butrym.
The paper not only serves as a workshop for stu-
dents interested in journalism but acts as a vehicle
for disseminating information to the student body.

Dr. J. L. Rafter and Ted Bronson, former
columnist for the Collegian and a 195 5 graduate
of La Salle, who is the current public relations
man for the College, served as moderators of the
paper over the past year.

By-lines from Bill Bickley, Jack McDevitt, Jim
Dougherty, Tom Devlin, and Norb Moser, to
mention a few, added invaluable interest and zest
to the columns of the eight page weekly.

tools for the accomplishment of this worthwhile
function.

a tremendously successful organization.

The purpose of the society is to foster a wider
knowledge of, and a greater love for the contribu-
tions of France to world culture.

EDUCATION SOCIETY

The Education Society was founded on campus
in order to promote an interest in teachers' prob-
lems, to foster ideals of professional ethics, and
to increase the opportunity for professional de-
velopment through organized contacts with
teachers currently engaged in the teaching pro-
fession. Leading educators in the Philadelphia area
addressed the club at monthly meetings.-
