Adrian, from St. Meinrad, in the first of his talks about our Lady's virtues, led us into of the retreat on the evening of the sixth. day we spent in silence, prayer, confiding to our Blessed Mother our hopes, resolutions and our plans for the future. The usual atmosphere of scur- rying and chatter gave way to the hushed tread of feet in the halls, as we made quiet visits to chapel or went to and from Father's inspiring lectures. The beautiful and impressive Mass followed by a wonderful sermon marked the end of our time of recollection on the day of the feast. We realize more than ever before iust what it means to be under the special patronage of our Lady, the Immaculate Conception, and we thank Mary from our hearts for this privilege. Page Twelve AD Jesus PER MARIAM 0 The Sodality, so dear to all the A.l.C. stu- dents, has instilled into their hearts its three- fold purpose, namely, personal sanctification, sanctification of our neighbor, and spread and defense of the Church. We feel that the Blessed Virgin has bestowed many graces on our group this year. Although we cannot go into detail about all the activities sponsored by the Sodality, we will mention a few of the most outstanding. The officers for this school year were elected in February 1946: Prefect, Alberta Voges, Vice- Prefect, Patricia Seger, Secretary, Rita Mathias, Treasurer, Ann Bowling, Chairman of Our Lady Committee, Dolores Baumgart, Eucharistic Com- mittee, .ludith Beckman, Literary Committee, Claudine Lents, Publicity Committee, Patricia Seger, Etiquette Committee, Lucille Fortwendel, Social Committee, Emily Herr. We are very grateful to Sister Clarissa for urging us on and helping us to make this year a successful one for the Sodality. Several Students Spiritual Council meetings were held, and proved to be a great aid in planning and making the Sodality meetings more interesting. Among the devotional exercises held in honor of Our Lady, one of the most beautiful was the procession of the Living Rosary. On October 7, 1946, at 8:00 p.m. the Academy girls, led by the- Seniors who were attired in their caps and gowns, formed the Living Ro- sary at the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. The Seniors represented the Cross and the Our Fathers. The Hail Marys were represented by members of other classes. Each girl carried a vigil light. After the procession reached the grotto, the Rosary was recited, led by Sister Mary James. The ceremony closed with the hymn "On This Day O Beautiful Mother" in honor of the Queen of Heaven. SODALITY OFFICERS, left to right Ann Bowling ..... TREASURER Patricia Seger . . VICE-PREFECT Alberta Voges . . . . PREFECT Rita Mathias . . SECRETARY On October 26, the Seniors attired in caps and gowns proudly ascended the stage in the Assembly, where Sister Clarissa presented them with their Sodality pins. This privilege is awarded only to Seniors who have actively partaken in the Sodality functions and who promise to be faithful to Our Blessed Mother for the rest of their lives. On December 6, the Student Council exam- ined the would-be members to see if they were qualified to be taken into the Sodality. December 8, the "red letter day" at the A.l.C. proved to be, as usual, the most in- spiring and successful event of the year. The day of Recollection, held on December 7, together with the beautiful Solemn High Mass on the day itself, produced an atmosphere of peace and contentment throughout the school. ln the afternoon, following Vespers, new mem- bers were enrolled in the Sodality which brings the total number of Sodalists in the school to 112. Father Lyons of the National Sodality Staff, introduced a new Sodality proiect namely, the Marian Award, which was carried out here at the Academy. This award is given for outstanding work in the formation of its members according to The Common Rules of 1910 and for achievement in its program of Sodality activities. The Sodality Marian Award was conferred on our Sodality on May 22, 1947. Ours is the "M" award .... the highest given. The first issues of the "Sodality Breezes" were published at the rate of one every two weeks by the Publicity Committee. We wish to thank all the Sodalists who cooperated with us through their attendance and participation at our meetings and making this a successful school year. Page Thirteen ag Zag at tie fifmdemg 9 With the coming of May, when mother nature bedecked her hillsides with beautiful blossoms and the birds sang cheerily in the tree-tops, it .was only fitting that the A.l.C. should once again loin in the chorus honoring our Blessed Mother .... the Queen of May. May ll, 1947, was one of the most impor- tant days of the school year, for it was then l. School Colors I that the May Crowning celebration was held. Contrary to former years, the festivities were slightly altered. The program of events was as follows: To begin the afternoon celebration the or- chestra, under the direction of Sister M. Cyrilla, O.S.B., gave its annual Concert. The program included: 2. Blue Skies ,V Orchestra 3. The old Bass viol Selections 4. Two Coleens , Song and Dance by Patricia Seger and Sylvia Becher 5. Harp Solo by Ann Savage from Jasper, Indiana lage ninel 6. Daisies .... a vocal solo by Mary Ann Kiefner 7. Saxophone solo by Dolores Bodner 8.

Serbian Dance At 5:00 p.m. the Parents-Senior Banquet was held in the Academy dining hall. Promptly at 6:30 p.m. the entire student body formed a procession, starting from the front entrance and ending on the Campus grounds. This was followed by the song "ln Pride of May" sung by the students. Then the customary address was given by Patricia Seger, vice-prefect of the Sodality after which she and Rita Mathias, secretary of the Sodality, crowned Alberta Voges, pre- fect, Queen of May. Following this, the Seniors presented a Gar- land Dance in honor of the Queen. The Queen then expressed her gratitude for having been so honored, but stated that she wished to place the crown on one, "far S by the Orchestra lovelier and more worthy of the title 'Queen of the May.' " Then the girls marched over to the Grotto of Our Lady, the Freshmen and Sophomores carrying lighted vigil lights and forming the Living Rosary around the Grotto, while the the Juniors carried bouquets of flowers. After reaching the Grotto, the Rosary was recited by all present, followed by the hymn "Hail Virgin Dearest Mary" and the crowning of the Blessed Virgin. After this the Act of Consecration to Mary was recited during which each Senior present- ed Our Lady with a flower as a token of her love and fidelity to Mary. As a fitting close, to seal the most perfect of all days, the hymn "Holy God" was sung. I I I I I LEGION OF MARY OFFICERS, left to right Claudine Lents ..........

Not the least achievement, that of gaining nineteen new active members, 'is to be accredited to the Blessed Virgin who proves herself irresist- ibly sweet and winning .... through whom Legionaries serve their neighbor as she served Christ. Flora Beckman Anna Marie Becker Martha Jean Wichmann Dorothy Bullock Alice Schroering Mary Caroline Seghers from the Canticle of Canticles, VI, 9 The officers chosen for the year by the Spiritual Director, Reverend Norbert Spitzmes- ser, O.S.B. were: Judith Beckman, President, Adelina Ambrosini, Vice-President, Lucille Wan- nemuehler, Secretary, and Claudine Lents, Treasurer.

The program included an address by Father Conrad Louis, O.S.B. The officers attended the Curia meeting. Legion Outing at the St. Meinrad Sandstone Quarry on May 6. Upon arrival opening prayers las at a meetingl were said before Mary's statue. This was followed by exploration of the grounds and investigation of the work being done. The Catena was recited during supper. A happy afternoon was ended with the concluding prayers and a hike back to school. LISTENED A WW i V ,W Q V, HE ANNUAL three day retreat at the A.l.C. was held over the week end of January 24. Rev. Francis Darmady, a Redemptorist Father from Glenview, Illinois was retreat master. We enioyed this year's retreat very much and everyone felt that the time passed too quickly. Father's lectures were inspiring and especially those on Confession, Respect for Parents, Value of Morning Offering and Devotion to Mary. The retreat is always one of the most outstanding events of the school year and the girls feel that the retreat of 1947 was one of the best ever. Page Seventeen OBLATES OF ST. BENEDICT AT THE A.l.C. 9 For the first time in the history of the Academy, the Oblates of St. Benedict held meetings every month of the school year. lt has become an active organization and its membership has increased rapidly. At the opening of the school year there were twenty-three Oblates, at the close, over forty. At every meeting discussions were held on some part of the Holy Rule of St. Benedict. The meetings closed with the night prayer of Holy Mother Church, Compline. ln September the following officers for the year were chosen: Lucille Wannemuehler, president, Sylvia Becher, vice-president, Alberta Voges, secretary, and Betty Mullen, treasurer. Much of the success of the year was due to the assistance of Sister Therese, O.S.B., and to our Spiritual Directors, Father Walter, O.S.B., and Father Raban, O.S.B. With such a love for the spirit of St. Benedict rooted into the souls of the girls, we hope the future will be filled with the blessings of Christ and our own Father Benedict!

With the various activities sponsored by the Mission Unit the girls were kept quite busy. . . and mission-minded too. Some of the High- lights were: THE MISSION MEETINGS were held regularly each month and have proved interesting because all the girls co- operated. In our first meeting the new mem- bers were enrolled after they made their pledges. They received the Student Crusade Pin which was explained to them along with the Crusade Banner during the course of the meeting. There are now IO8 enrolled in our Mission Unit. A debate about the Negroes which came up during our meeting on Janu- ary ll, I947, is one, we are sure, the girls are not likely to forget. THE BULLETIN BOARD was an important factor in the line of Mis- sion News. lt kept the girls informed of various events which were to take place in- cluding our Mission Social and our White Elephant Sale. Other items of importance as the Holy Father's Monthly Mission Intention, the Sunday Gospels, the month of February during which we were to pray for Unity of the World, Church Unity Octave, reminders for the different seasons of the year. All these and more kept our Bulletin Board no- ticeable and interesting. PRAYERS AND SACRIFICES were offered up for the Missions all during the year and we hope that the girls have made it one of their daily practices. Observ- ance of "World Unity" played an important role in the life of the Student Crusader this year. Continuation of C S. M. C THE MISSION SOCIAL was held on October 20, 1947. The gym was very definitely turned into a scene of festivity due to the hard work of willing hands. Bal- loons and posters were not a small part in the line of decorations. The "Mystery Box" an entirely new addition was quite popular and created a lot of interest. lt increased the fund considerably. Others such as the Ice Cream, Sandwich and Drinks, Penny Pitch, Novelty, and Bingo stands were a great asset in helping us to reach the sum of 5350.00. THE WHITE ELEPHANT SALE held on January ll, 1947 in the gym was an event which created much interest and ex- citement. Various articles were auctioned and prices that were paid were considerably higher than the retail price. To give you an example: a one-cent piece of bubble gum went for 4252! Now please don't think us spendthrifts. Aft- er all the proceeds, 550, went to the Missions and you know bubble gum was hard to get! DONATIONS have been sent out to various Missions both here and abroad. lt is estimated that about S500 has been sent out this year. OTHER PROJECTS 9 Members of the various study clubs sold Christmas Seals during the Christmas Season. Clothing was gathered by the girls and sent to the people of Europe. The girls wrapped Christmas packages and sent them to Father Gregory's Indian Missions. A movie about the work of the Medical Missionaries in India was shown in the As- sembly during the latter part of October. The girls certainly enioyed it and they also got a good inside view of what is being done for the welfare of those poor people by our Missionaries from home. SPEAKERS 0 Last but not least we mention those who came here to the Academy in order that they might talk directly to the girls about mission work and the need of Missionaries. Father Sourd, a Glen Mary priest, talked to the girls in November. His work consists chiefly in instructing in the Catholic Faith, those less fortunate people who live away from churches and Catholic localities. Father Gregory Kunkel, O.S.B. addressed the Student Body and told them some very interesting experiences. His life is dedicated solely to the Indians in Winnebago, Nebraska. Page 'lhiventy-one Mission Sfucfy Clubs I ATIN AMERICAN ' The aim of this club is to learn more about the countries of Latin America, their people, their religion and their customs. This year our group studied in particular the work of the missioners and the need for more mission work in these countries. This proved very interest- ing and helped us to become better acquaint- ed with our neighbors of Latin America .... Leader . . . Charlene Lents, Scribe . . . Loretta Vieck, Members . . .

From the monthly publication of "To- day's World" and various other pamphlets we have learned the meaning of Communism, how it is spread and to what heights it has risen in our own country. We know that it is a problem which will some day confront all of us, if we do not do something to check it .... Leader . . . Flora Beckman, Scribe . . . Mary Caroline Seghers, Members . . .

NEGRO 0 The Negro Study Club spent this year trying to foster among the student group a love for the Negro. They have learned different points in the Negro's favor: lil The Negro has an immortal soul created by God and equal to ours l2i The Negro has not had the chances we have had l3i The Negro is intellectually and musically inclined. With these facts in mind they are prepared to face the world and all its absurd ideas about Negroes. As an achievement, our club presented a short play about the Negroes, Every night the members assembled in the Blessed Virgin room and prayed three Hail Marys for them. Among the girls taking part in these activities are: Leader . . . Lucille Wannemuehler, Scribe . . . Betty Schenk, Members . . . Alice Schroer- ing, Marilyn Ludwig, Catherine Eckert, Kath- leen Meyer, Doris Ann Rexing, Mary Elizabeth Rexing, Mary Ellen Hirsch, Betty Lou Schmitt, Anna Marie Becker, Dorothy Bullock. HOME MISSIONS 0 We studied the need of mission work here in America. To obtain additional information we wrote to the Home Missions at Glendale, Ohio and to the Catechists at Huntington, Indiana. To help the missions spiritually we offered Masses, Holy Communions, Visits to the Blessed Sacrament, Rosaries, and other prayers for them. As financial help we had a little mission bag in which we saved our extra pennies and nickels for the missions .... Lead- er . . . Doris Pohl, Scribe . . . Martha Wathen, Members . . .

We have raised S15 which will go for subscriptions for "The Catholic World" for Catholic women in the Catholic University in Peking China. We gave a Chinese play for our achievement.

INDIA 0 India is a vast country with unlimited numbers of potential converts to the Catholic faith. Understanding of the beliefs, customs and laws of the Indians is necessary if we are to help them toward the truth. It was the aim of this study club to acquire this un- derstanding. Besides studying about and praying for India, we corresponded with some missionary nuns who are in that country. On one occasion, we sent them a sum of money that we had made by raffling candy ....

Although it was a very busy one, we had the ioy of achievement. The enrollment of eighty members was the largest number ever had. Every Friday morning the school rang with ioyful voices. The reason that so many girls flocked to Sister Kathleen when she called for singers was that there was so much op- portunity for a development of voices, whether soprano or alto. Not only was it an op- portunity to develop voices but also one way in which to show them oFf. For example, when the Seniors gave their annual play, between acts the gym rang with happy voices singing such favorites as: Mother Machree, It's Just a Little Street, Ma' Curly Headed Baby, When lrish Eyes are Smiling, The Desert Song, Home Sweet Home, and Ave Maria. We feel that all the members of the Glee Club deserve praise for their cooperation in making it one of the best the school ever had. Especially are the altos to be lauded for their fine spirit in being so willing to come to extra practice when called upon. Hearty Congratulations, girls! May your lives be a song in perfect harmony with Jesus and His Blessed Mother. Page Twenty-iivc BEST PERSONALITY MOST POPULAR CUTEST MOST SHY UV .

Nuts Page Twenty-eight ' The class of '47 originally 34 strong came to ioin forces with the "Castle on the hill" on September l2, 1943. We were awed by the magnificent structure before us and were beginning to 'feel a little out of place. But with the kindness of the sisters and the older girls we were soon feeling at home. Of course to keep the old tradition, we were tagged "green Freshies" but it couldn't be of course, that we were always lost or being late for classes not to mention the confusion we caused in the dorms. Gradually we be- gan to feel a part of the A.l.C. We ad- vanced in knowledge, not only mental but spiritual, made life-long friends, and partic- ipated in parties as well as other social activities. By June we were very proud of ourselves because we had spent a very suc- cessful year. Summer came and went. Back at A.I.C. again we took up where we had left off in June. Of course some girls didn't come back but others came to take their places. We made the Freshies quite aware that we were now veterans. Being "Sophs" we were kept very busy. Among other things we sponsored a Truth and Consequence program, gave a class play and won the volley ball tournies. We now considered ourselves quite wise and ready to advance to our Junior year. Another summer and finally we were Jun- iors. By now we were feeling rather impor- tant since we were upperclassmen. Our class had dwindled slightly since '43 because we now numbered only l8. A small class didn't hold us back though because we had our class meetings and collected the dues that were necessary to give the Seniors their an- nual party. But wishing to be different we gave With the lucky Seniors an outing instead. a comfortable bus and a big assortment Class History of food we went to Springmill Park near Mitchell. After a day of hiking, swimming and exploring caves we returned home to the A.I.C. and never got finished talking about our experiences. ln February we received the most pleasant surprise of the year .... yes, you guessed it .... our class rings. The rest of the school didn't get any peace until they had gazed on our rings at least a dozen times. June came quickly. All too soon it was September, but we didn't mind because we were Seniors. Three years ago no one would have imagined that we would now be ready to fill the various offices in the Sodality, Legion and C.S.M.C. We received our distinguished places in church and in the refectory. Again we wish to be different so instead of receiving the "Trips" we chose to live in the "Private Room Hall". This year we really did try something pro- fessional. We gave a five act play, Mistress of Fernleigh Grange under the able guidance of Sister Cyrilla. When the big day came to give it we were very proud of the large attendance. ln January we made our three day retreat. This wasn't iust an ordinary retreat as before, but our last one at A.l.C., maybe our last one forever. .lune 8 .... the day we dreamed about and talked about for years. Yes graduation has finally come, but now that it is here everyone doesn't seem too glad about it. We realize that at last we have come to the crossroads of our lives. Never again will we all be together in our classes, dancing in the "rec", visiting in our private rooms, taking hikes and all the other things we did that made our life at A.I.C. so happy.

BERNADETTE OF LOURDES uite a bit of talent was displayed when the Glee Club presented their Operetta, Bernadette of Lourdes, on the evening of December 8, T946. The Operetta was a typical life story of little Bernadette as we know it. The mockery of her companions, the misunderstanding of her mother, together with the sweet consolation of the Blessed Virgin were distinctively portrayed. Bernadette was played by Bridget Ragan, her mother by Lucille Fortwendel. The Blessed Virgin was played by Dolores Baumgart. The group of twenty peasants was played by members of the Freshmen, Sophomore, and Junior classes. They are to be praised for their willingness in their cooperation which was so necessary for the success of the operetta. The part of the angels was taken by the Seniors and several other girls. They looked heavenly, indeed, arrayed in their white gowns and colorful sashes. And oh yes, we must not forget Ann Savage, the little harpist from Jasper, Indiana, who played a little solo as one of the closing numbers of the operetta. Sister M. Kathleen and Sister M. Cyrilla deserve a great deal of thanks for their work and patience in directing the entire cast.

Out in the world and finding herself in quite a number of difficulties she finally realizes that the counsels of her aunt should have been heeded and returns a sad and repentant girl who has profited by her experience.

Having sailed upon the turbu- lent Atlantic Ocean for days on end, my ship at last docked in the beautiful harbor of Rio de Janiero. A leisure walk through the plaza brought me to El Alberto Hotel and Cocktail Lounge owned by charming vivacious Alberta Voges, known to her intimates as "Butch." Upon entering I beheld a strange specimen, presumably of humanity, sampling food by the carload. It proved to be Ann Bowling whose ambition to be a hobo was thwarted by her husband's having left her S70,000,000,000. We were ioined at our cocktails by Mes- dames Patricialle and Sylvianoriana, noted opera singers. Virginia Mae Welp, their personal hairdresser, who has been with them since graduation from Beauty College and Rita Meyer, a proficient typist, who takes care of their fan mail, awaited them in the lobby. The elevator girl, Mary Lou Bartley, had to make two trips because not more than ten trunks would fit in the elevator at a time. Mary lou did not mind, however, for she loves to be of service. Sitting next to us, reading the daily news, was Rita Mathias, who is a model for the "Goldie-glo" Shampoo Company. The front page featured an article on the famous por- trait painter, Claudine Lents, who is known as the Rembrandt of the 20th Century. Reading over her shoulder, we saw an ac- count of the visit of Lucille Fortwendel, world renowned traveler and lecturer on Psychology. To avoid having to buy a ticket to her lecture, we went directly to the airport to meet her. Her private plane came bouncing down the field, having missed the runway by 500 feet. lncidentally, the pilot, Emily Herr, will receive her license in several years. Drowning out the roar of the plane, there came a sudden violent explosion from a near- by laboratory. Upon investigation we found that Judith Beckman had blown up her ex- perimental station while trying to find a method of increasing erasers instead of decreasing them with use Ithe eraser she had used since ly nik? fszfurnfy Qjgvnyflff her Freshmen year in high school lasted only fifteen yearsl. We held our breaths in awe as a huge silver airliner glided smoothly onto the run- way. Hastily alighting the pilot reported to the ground commander the cause of his having broken the company's spectacular record of having all flights perfectly timed. He had had to wait forty-eight hours for a woman named Dolores Baumgart who wouldn't allow a take-off until her make-up was properly applied. The trim young hostess, Pearline Buechler, came to testify on his behalf. She succeeded in calming the outraged commander to whom she was engaged. We decided to drive away from the noise and bustle of the city. While we were en- ioying the scenery, the car gave a sudden iolt and the driver lost control of the car due to a fiat tire. Seeing a nearby farmhouse, we went there to call for a wrecker. Mary Jean Koetter who answered the door insisted that we stay for supper while her eldest son fixed the tire. She has a beautiful 400 acre farm and six boys to help her with it. Her hus- band is a cattle rancher who travels most of the time, so we didn't get to meet him. Mary Jean told us about Ethel Kippenbrock from whom she hears frequently. Ethel is now a concert pianist. She wrote about her friend Mary Lou Meyer, who is attending a well- known dramatic school in London. Her aspi- ration is to be a great actress. After supper conversation included talk of old times my companions had had, a tale of the strange country I must visit soon called the United States where they say, people drink, a supposedly intoxicating beverage known as "coke" which causes them to perform fan- tastic contortions to a wild music . . . boogie woogie, I believe. However I fear I must master a new language first. Now having enioyed the delicious lunch of beef and gravy I must hurry off to catch my atom-powered space ship back to Mars. In- cidentally you will hear more of these lovable characters in my latest book "Swinging on a Planet . . . A Visit to Earth."

Of course! That was the day the Volleyball tournaments were held. The competing teams were the Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. Talk about hard work! Anyone who witnessed the games can verify my statement. Everyone tried her best. There were several games in which the competition was very sharp, but in the end the Sophomores won. Now wait a minute! Don't think they ran right oFf 09 V V' O ,Q tQ,5,Qv W Q M? with the laurel wreaths! Goodness no! Be- fore they deserve them, they had to put up a terrific battle with the Seniors, since the deciding game was between the Seniors and Sophomores. But toward the end of the sec- ond half it was pretty evident that the Soph- omores would come out victorious. They won their honors fairly and squarely and we con- gratulate them. The captain of the winning team was Imelda Meny. The referees for the games were Sister Mary Regis and Sister Mary Kathleen.

As the Abbey grew from a roughly hewn log cabin to the massive sandstone cloister, so also has The Abbey Press developed into a modern printing establishment. In the lost few years the publication of books and pamphlets have become part of the program for making known the truths of the Christian religion and culture, so that without leaving the cloister the monks may more directly spread the seed of the Word of God in its various phrases of the printing art. If you are not already a reader of The Grail Magazine you can become one by subscribing to it for two dollars for one year. A sample copy will be sent free upon request, as will a copy of the list of Grail Publications. THE GRAIL OFFICE '7!te pfledd sf.
