Relig- ion unifies our whole educa- tion. What good are We with only our minds developed? Are not our souls more important? Religion sets the pace at Mercy. lt is taken into the diiierent classes as each individual strives to make religion evident in every phase of life. Spiritual Values Come First Mixed expressions greet the expounding of Church history by Father James Driscoll, QP. Listeners are S. Erhart, J. Huber, A. Flack and S.

You add CO' to H10 and then - well, you get the point, this is chemistry. Those who delight in putting various little molecules together and getting a result taudible or otherwise? prove to be apt students in this subject. Enjoy disecting animals? Well, the field for you is biology - the study of living things. You'll never fully appreciate nature, unless you study about its various functions. " ugsf Beakers, Bunsen Burners Or are you interested in all the sciences? Mercy offers general science and senior science. Take your pick, or better still why not take them alll And, who knows, Miss Mercy might turn out to be another Louis Pasteur. Looking at the meniscus are chemists, C. Mellott and E. Fieler while they move to the windows "to get some light on the subject." Just a little patience and you are on the way-unfortunately, not always to a correct answer. Freshies add and subtract, multi- ply and divide as they struggle through basic math. Eager Sopho- mores venture forth from algebra into geometry. Somebody dares the Juniors to come up another step and so we have the intellect- uals meeting the challenges of algebra II. But who stops here, let's go on and take a look at what's ahead. Ee--gad--Trig! olving Problems Division and percentage problems prove conquerable to N. Shaver and P. Suesser, in basic mathematics class. Smiles spell triumph while M.

Which do you prefer? Would you rather say "Ita, oui oui or si si?" The choice is up to you. Try to picture yourself speaking the language of the ancient Romans or maybe traveling to Paris fmake believe of coursel and being able to speak that fascinating French, or perhaps Spanish, if the land of the haciendas is your delight.

Dressed in a trim suit with pad and pencil in hand you take your first step into the boss's office, bring- ing with you knowledge and "know how" you acquired at Mercy in your office practice, shorthand and typing classes. Never fear, Miss Mercy, you,re sure to make the grade! Miss Mercy's in Business Our girl Friday, Carol Blessing, knows that neatness, ability to work, efficiency and skill make for an executive secretary. mon ii "Rushl this copyf' Carol Kracke tells Marcia Hagen. who finds the electric mimeograph machine fast and confusing. C. Schwietering and C. Willenbrink find that the easiest way to "add 'em up' is by machine. but if looks as if J. Coors prefers to reach her answers mentally. Finding themselves in a lot of "dough" are J. Cunningham, P. Sperher and M. J. Lustenherger. exhibiting some of their culinary skills. "Love and Marriage" is that your heart's desire? You know the saying "the way to a mants heart is through his stomach." Those fragrant odors you smell are coming from the cooking room. The girls are preparing dainty, delicious delicacies to tempt anyone's appetite. Mmmmm , . .

It's such a tiny word but in reality a book that tells the story of four years of study and activity. And so, once again our Seniors are walking through Mercy's portals - this time in the opposite direction. And as they open the door thoughts return to all the wonderful years Mercy has given. The book closes with hesitation as the story of Seniors as the class of '56 ends -- only to open again unfolding for them an entirely new and diilerent life.

We now bear the noble title, sophomore. We ex- perience a feeling of su- periority when asked by a confused freshie, "How do I get to Room 305?"or "Where's the Cafeteria?" But if we pause a mom- ent we will recall our be- wildering freshie year and know we have gained one goal - at least we know where we are most of the time! We struggle along taking time only to make biology projects, attend dances, and maybe even a play or two. 1 C . i n l 4 J f, i .4 : ' li Kgvv .

Biblical Drama Produced by eniors Romance is in the air as Thamar CR. Martinb tenderly welcomes Naaman 1Margie Menkej home, after a miraculous cure by Eliseus. Mercy Seniors came out on top when they ventured into a completely new and different type of play this year. "The Slave Maid of Israel," by Mary Hitchcock, gave the Seniors a chance to display versatile talents as they staged the first Biblical drama to be presented by Mother of Mercy. The Senior Class play set a record this year by being the first to be given during Lent. The presentation and staging of it was a big undertaking under the expert direction of Sister Mary Carlos, R.S.M. Rosalie Buechler was the stage manager with a stage crew corn- posed of Rita Trephol, Margie Betsch, Mary Braeuning, Carol Bachman, Janet Richter and Lorraine Richter. Business managers were Carol Kracke and Mary Jane Koeninger, while Jo Ann Coors and Mary Jane Schare served on the publicity committee. The palace of Naaman near Damascus in the year 984 B.C. is the setting of the Senior Class play. The story is woven around the Biblical character Naaman, a leper, and his miraculous healing at the hand of the prophet Eliseus. Naaman is a general of the Syrian army. Ruth, the slave maid of Israel, held captive by robbers from Syria and led from the land of the Israelites, strengthens the courage of those around her. It is Ruth's unfailing faith that finally brings about the cure of Naaman. The leading parts in Sunday night's cast were captured by Margie Menke as Naaman and Rita Martin as Thamar, the beautiful. Betsy Folz appeared as Ruthg Jane Blank played Jesse and Jane Himmelman por- trayed the part of Simeon. On Monday night, the cast included Julia Lunne as Naa- man and Virginia Schramm as Thamar. Mary Jo Owens played the part of Ruth, the little slave. Jessie was portrayed by Brenda Baumgartner and cruel Simeon, the heartless villain, enacted by Joan Verkamp.

Gold Medalist - the highest conferment made upon dramatic students at Mercy High, was merited by Jane Himmelman, Marjorielaine Menke, Mary Jo Owens and Virginia Schramm. Some of Jane's readings included "Joan of Lorraine" and "End of Summer." Virginia's readings were "Jane Eyre" and "Oh No!" "Crimson Rambler" and "A Financial Problem" were chosen by Mary Jo Owens. Margie's numbers were "Quo Vadis" and "The Green-Eyed Drag- on." Combining their talents the Medalists concluded the program with "A Crown for Mary," a play in one act. Much work, dra- matic lessons week after week, and un- pleasant examinations are all part of the big test to see if Mercians can take the dare, hold on and make the final grade.

The drums go bang and the bells go clang as the horns blend in with low, mellow tones. The piano and bass lend them a touch of perfect harmony.

The most delicate and complicated process of every business, unknowingly exists in the person of all God's people. So, since our souls are our only Hbusi- nessf' Mercy seniors shook off the regular school routine in an effort to get an inside look at the state of this spiritual guide. Through the secluded atmosphere of Friar- hurst and the help of Fathers "Chris" and "Ben" many diffi- culties vanish, terminating the ever recurring job of inventory.

Silence, meditation and conferences take the place of noisy chattering, school books and classes. During these days of the annual retreat each girl has the opportunity of asking herself, "Am I doing what God wants me to do?" Father Ma- jerowski, S.J., the retreat mas- ter, chose for his special theme "The High Ideals of Christian Youth in Today's World." Father says, "To reach some- thing very high, We use a ladder to help us on the way. I shall attempt to point out the steps on this ladder that lead to God." And he promptly did so.
