Editorial from the 1927 Annual of St. Rose Academy in San Francisco

A year ago, "L’Etincelle" the first journal to be published in Saint Rose was presented, with righteous pride to the students and friends of our beloved Alma Mater.  Now, glowing with the same happiness that warmed our predecessors, we have published the second edition of our long-dreamed-of book, and it is with a sense of achievement that we offer our production to you.
     Our responsibility this year was to establish as a tradition in our school the journal which last year's Seniors created, and it is in the  hope that this issue signalized that achievement that we have discarded the original name of "L'Etincelle" (The Spark), for one more appropriate.  In choosing "Gold and White" for a permanent title, we have carefully considered the high esteem and affection in which our school colors are held, and the long hours of toil that have been spent in t heir honor.
     Symbolical in its name of the true Dominican Spirit that pervades the atmosphere of our school, the "Gold and White," we feel sure will succeed in winning the loyal support of future editors and contributors.  Surely then, as year after year rolls by, we shall see our treasured journal becoming more and more worthy of the spirit which created it.
