Rising on the back slope of the campus, a new St. Mary's is nearing completion as another monument to the educational en- deavors of the Sisters of Mercy in Little Rock. Supplementing the present buildings erected in 1908, 1922, and 1928, the new high school building, which will open its doors in September, will be a tribute to the interested patronage of our Most Rev. Bishop Fletcher and the clergy, to the generosity of patrons and friends, to the loyalty of former pupils, and to the efforts and self-sacrifice of the Sisters, in particular to Sister Mary Mark, RSM, superior, former principal and faculty member, whose long-range vision for many years is resulting in a dream come true. We have loved St. Mary's during our years here under her tutelage, and we rejoice in her progress. The fear that perhaps the new building will usher out the St. Mary's We know and love overtakes us, but we realize the foolishness of such a thought, be- cause it is not the building we love. St. Mary's is a school wherein we and numerous others have been, are being, or will be educated, she is the foster mother of all who enter here, she is, more than any other, the guide and the influence behind our future decisions, and she will be in the years to come a source of our fondest and richest memories. Like the old, the new structure will take its worth from the virtues of the people within its walls. Under the patronage of Our Lady of Mercy and dedicated to the service of her Divine Son, our Sisters spend their lives in a labor of love-training young women to love God, to know Him, to serve Him, and to honor and emulate His Virgin Mother and our Mother. What more beautiful tribute can we pay to her than to dedicate to Mary, on the feast of Our Lady of Mercy, in Marian Year, a New Marian Hall, named in her honor. In the MERCIAN of 1954, we have chosen our theme from the Holy Father's Marian Year Prayer as we present the Misses of the Mount at work, at play, and at prayer, under the protection of our Heavenly Mother. "Inspired by the splendor of your heavenly beauty, and impelled by the anxieties of the World, we cast ourselves into your arms, O Immacu- late Mother of Jesus and our Mother, Mary, confident of finding in your most loving heart appeasement of our ardent desires, and a safe harbor from the tempests which beset us on every side .... " -Pius XII, Marian Year Prayer. 3 Wyafy, QU UUII of 0 iUl'l 4 UEUICATIUN A hundred years ago Pope Pius IX declared the Immaculate Conception of Mary to be a dogma of Catholic faith. In celebration of the anniversary of a century of devotion to Mary Immaculate, 1954 has been declared by Pope Pius XII to be the Marian Year. We desire to honor Our Lady in a special manner this year, entertaining the hope that the world will return to the Prince of Peace, from whom it has strayed. Students of Mt. St. Mary's have always fostered in their hearts an ardent love for Mary, and she has been our guiding light throughout our school years. Our social and scholastic life is centered around the Sodality of Mary. We sing her hymns, recite her Office, and pray her Rosary. We purpose to follow her example and imitate her virtues so that we may join with her in giving glory to her Divine Son, who gave her to us as truly our Mother, from whom we derive inspiration and consolation when we have need of it. In manifesting our devotion to the Blessed Virgin, We humbly and lovingly dedicate to her the 1954 Mercian, with its theme of the Marian Year. May it bring from her a smile of approval making us worthy to address her as Our Queen and Our Mother. O mary, Conceiuec! Wfdouf Sn, may jar uf me ,Juana facoume ja jfzee.

CozzcA 6 Dear Graduates of the Class of 1954, At about this same time every year, the editor of the Mercian or her delegate reminds me that the time is approaching when I must prepare to write a valediction to another class that has finished its course and is ready to leave the protecting arms of its Alma Mater to face whatever realities, stern or otherwise, which life has to offer them. It seems incredible that those gangling Freshmen of yester year have developed into the sophisticated Seniors, who are ready to pass in review for the last time and to receive the awards and the approval that comes to all who have finished their scholastic work and are worthy to be graduated. A Chinese savant once said, "The more a man is educated, the more it is necessary for the welfare of the State, to instruct him how to make proper use of his talents. Education is like a double-edged sword. It may be turned to dangerous uses, if it is not properly handled." You have bee11 educated under the auspices of the Catholic Church and under the influence of the good Sisters. For these reasons any community in which you choose to live will be the better for it, if you are always faithful to the lessons you have learned. You have had the advantage of a complete education, which means that you have had mental and physical training and, what is most important of all, moral training so that you may know how to use your talents for your own good and for the best interests of the society to which you belong. It is significant that this is the Marian Year. I have been told that the theme of this year runs through your Year Book. This is, of course, no surprise to me. It is as it should be. The influence of our Mother Mary has played a large part in shaping your lives during your school years. Many a time while at the Mount, you have gathered with your school companions before the shrine of Mary Immaculate. There you have pledged to her your fealty and devotion. You are her dear children and she wants you to be clothed with the protective cloak of chastity, of which Milton says-"So dear to heaven is saintly chastity, that when a soul is found sincerely so, a thousand liveried angels lackey her, driving far off from her each thing of stain and guilt." In an age when false conceptions of freedom for women have been promoted and adopted, you have been taught to realize that freedom in the Christian sense is not license. It is obedience to God's laws. Most of you will marry and rear families and it will be your duty to restore to the home its former stability, the sanctity and permanence of the marriage bond, and the purity of the marital practices. This nation needs mothers of virtue and courage to solve the problem of what is known as juvenile delinquency, but what is really the fail- ures of the adults. Let your light shine, because "Virtue could see to do what Virtue would by her own radiant light, though sun and morn were in the flat sea sunk." I hope that some of the members of this class will emulate the examples of their teachers. The Lord needs laborers in His vineyard. The schools are in dire need of religious teachers. Are you sure that God has not called you? It is a terrible thing to fail to answer the call. And yet we know that God calls a sufficient number to do His work. Where are they? And now, with stirrup cup in hand, let us pledge our mutual prayers and good offices. Though we are separated by space yet We may be close in prayer. And "More things are wrought by prayer than this World dreams of." May God bless you, one and all, and may we meet again when this short life is over to relive the happy days spent together at the Mount. And now Farewelll, a word that must be and hath been-a sound which makes us linger-yet-farewell I Sincerely yours in Christ, THOMAS L. KEANY 7 igrennfing we Vmaaea .fdf we Wounf In Their Classes . . The Mount where Freshmen pore over Uamo, amas, amat" and try to absorb the mysteries of algebra-where Sophomores struggle with geometry and wish they were again pondering equations-where Junior typists guardedly erase errors only to make others or encounter irregular verbs, in French this time instead of Latin .... The Mount where Seniors find that French verbs aren't such a mystery as is chemistry-where in religion class they face the serious study of choice of a state of life-where they struggle through the dagger scene of '6Macheth" and find themselves on graduation night wishing they were still struggling .... The Mount where through the guidance of Mary, we grow in knowledge. UO gyda! jounfain of jaifk . . . gafde our mini wifh fde efernaf fruf .4 8 4.

The Sodality of the Blessed Virgin Mary re- organized early in September with the appoint- ment of new officers by Sister Mary Mark, Sodality Moderator. Activities for the new year were started at the first meeting, with the elec- tion of Committee Chairmen. Every Friday afternoon meetings were held, consisting of reports, skits, discussions, and quizzes, written or conducted by the Sodalists, to lead the members to a greater devotion toward the Blessed Virgin Mary, and to sanctify them- selves, their neighbors, and to defend the church. The Little Office of the Immaculate Conception and the Rosary were recited in the Chapel on the First Friday of every month. 28 On February second, a group of sixty-eight new members was received into the Sodality at a ceremony conducted in the Chapel by Very Rev- erend T. L, Keany. The Sodalists' annual three- day retreat, conducted by Reverend John Nugent, was held the last week in Lent. Other projects sponsored by the Sodalists in- cluded a pledge from all the members to raise funds to donate a new statue of Mary for the new building, a Mardi-Gras dance, promotion of Cath- olic literature for Catholic Press Month, and a contribution to the Bishop's Relief Fund for the poor children of Europe. 5 9 rg i 2 fi s. cg f Q 5 1 3 1 ,--,WM-..

In February another group of section presidents and secretaries was chosen for second semester. The principal club activities included a weekly discussion, panel or debate, in which all the mem- bers of the class participated on either the nega- tive or affirmative side. Topics for the discus- sions Were selected from the weekly "Current 29 Events," a special newspaper written for social science pupils. This year because of the change of political parties in Congress and in the Presidency, for the first time in twenty years, special stress was placed on the study of the different policies of the two parties. On the feast day of Sister M. Ita in January, the club surprised her by presenting an informal program in her honor, featuring a mock trial. Regular meetings were held semi-monthly during the government and history class periods. 3 .,., .1 WS" i A i ' 'Q 431991-ev' 3 , gf -M H 9 j rf , -wwf, ,v .

Early in September, El Club Espanol, under the sponsorship of Sister Mary Helen, elected officers to plan and carry out a schedule of activities aimed at promoting student interest in "South of the Border" lands and peoples. On September 16, Mexican Independence Day, the club was enter- tained with songs, dances, and stories by the entire group of Spanish- speaking students, and later a Spanish version of "Little Red Riding Hood" was presented, The club also celebrated Pan American Day with talks, songs, and dances of their countries demonstrated by the boarding students from Mexico, Panama, and Cuba. At Christmas time the Mount rang with Christmas Carols in Spanish, as the students serenaded the school, and Christmas customs of Mexico and Spain were eagerly discussed as a party was planned. A highlight of February was the arrival of two new students unable to speak English. The Spanish students gained practical knowledge of the language as they tried-and succeeded-to understand and be understood. The Spanish Club brought the year to a close with a fiesta which was enjoyed by the combined French and Spanish Clubs. Pictured at the right in costumes are Carol Ann Belmont and Clarice Estrada, two officers of the Spanish Club. 30 5 i 4 3 3 2 5 4 e 2 2 v i ,.A -- ' k A :-.- i l 1::.: .... . , " .

Christmas found the French Club keeping an old tradition of serenad- ing the other classes through the halls with French Christmas carols. February brought a party celebrated by the exchanging of Valentines written in orginal French verse, followed by refreshments, songs, and games, all in French. The committee members in charge of preparations for the affair are pictured with their box and handmade Valentines at the left: Luci Moran, Joan Ogle, and Missy Wright. In the spring, joining with El Club Espanol, movies about the two countries were shown which fulfilled the purpose of the clubs by familiar- izing their members with foreign people, their language and customs. A final get-together between the two clubs was held on the campus early in May, when each club entertained the other with a fete or fiesta, held out of doors. The final "Au revoir" was heard as Le Cercle Francais brought its activities to a close for the school year. 31 5 - lf '13 W. he ,Q .
