All the students at Mt. St. Mary's feel greatly indebted to His Excellency. the Most Reverend James L. Connolly. D.D.. Sc. HD.. for his fatherly interest. His Excellency, the Bishop, has ever taken a deep interest in our scholastic activities. and has been most gracious in donating gifts to our library. For all these kind. thoughtful favors we are grateful to him. We Zeddccufe REVEREND EDWARD J. GORMAN, A.M. lt is with sincere pride and respect that we, the Senior Class of 1954, dedicate this yearbook to you, the Reverend Edward J. Gorman, A.M., our Diocesan Superin- tendent of Schools. You have, on many occasions, shown interest in our progressive academy. To hear your encouraging messages always made us very happy. We realize the great debt that we owe to you for your tireless efforts over the many past fruitful years, and we ask God to bless you so that you may continue to carry on His work in the field of Catholic Education. h ,e 36' -.vlg 1' - T , 1 vi v 'V i 1 'Nl' auf: - .x " A 4 1, 1e.? . , 4 , . w . .

Because of Monsignor Cerrardls untiring efforts as director of our sodality, "The Sodality of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Mother Cabrini," we respectfully honor Monsignor as the devoted friend of youth, who strives to inspire us with deep, practical devotedness. Monsignor Gerrard has also displayed constant fidelity in instructing the Seniors in their choice of a vocation and in the phases of life necessary for the high ideals of Catholic women. We are grateful for the opportunity we have had here at Mount Saint Mary Academy to come under his direction, and we pray that God will bountifully reward Monsignor for his sincere interest in the problems that the girls may have. 77ZaL'4e'z pw MOTHER MARY HILDA. R.S.M.. Ph.D. It is the privilege of us Seniors of 1954 to express our most sincere expression of gratitude to Mother Mary Hilda, R.S.M., Ph.D.. Mother Provincial of the Sisters of Mercy of the Province of Providence. By her interesting talks to the girls, and her deep spiritual influence, she has instilled into our minds the thought of being more like our Blessed Mother, the Lady of Fatima. This. indeed. has been most inspirational. Mother Provincial has constantly taken a deep interest in every factor that pertains to our academy. She has encouraged us by her exhortations to the practices of virtue expected of girls trained in a Catholic high school. For all your many favors and advice, Mother Mary Hilda, R.S.M., Ph.D., we ask God to bless you abundantly'so that you may continue the work in His vineyard. l f n""""' 0m 0 4 Whenever we look back upon our years at Mount Saint Mary Academy, uppermost in our minds and hearts will be memories of our beloved Principal, Sister Mary Carmela, R.S.M. Sister has striven valiantly throughout our years at the Academy to help each of us to developuall of our talents and potentialities to the greatest possible degree, so that we may go forth into the world as capable, intelligent Catholic women. A shining example of virtue personified in herself, Sister has never allowed us to lose sight of the fact that humility is the greatest of virtues, par- ticularly in the face of success, and that modesty and ladylike actions are never outdated. Because of Sister's inspiration, we shall all endeavor to follow the path she has set for us, and live our lives '5Under the Mantle of Mary," no matter what our vocation. SISTER STANISLAUS is our efficient secretary here at the Mount. Her unruffled patience, in spite of demands, and her ad- vice have been an asset to many a girl. SISTER M. ALBERTA Y RSM.

If red hair is an indication of a fiery temper, then Janice is certainly a phenomenon. Although she is a regular 'Learrot top," Janice doesn't have a tempermental bone in her body and she is, in fact, one of the calmest, most even-tempered girls in our class.

"I have never before heard so many fine voices combined in one group." This was a comment made by Alice Jackson, a T.V. personality, after a special choir from our Glee Club appeared on her program. Noteworthy praise, indeed, but fully deserved by these industrious, talented girls who comprise the Clee Club of Mount Saint Mary Academy. Trained under the excellent direction of Sister Mary Gabriella, R.S.M., F.T.C.L., this seventy voice group presents two concerts each year-one at Christmas. and the other a Spring concert in April. They also sing at various religious exercises, hospitals, and charitable organizations throughout the city, lending a note of cheer to all. Left to right: S. McMahon, S. Krauzyk, E. Peterson, M.

First of all, we take this opportunity to thank our teachers, especially, Sister Mary Irene, R.S.lVI., under whose direction we have met with success in every attempt, and without whose help we would certainly have met with failure. We are duly grateful to the Taylor Publishing Co. for making it pos- sible to publish the 1954 MERCYCREST. The Seniors are also apprecia- tive of the help and cooperation given by our photographers, namely, The Warren Kay Vantine Studio and Mullen Studio. We are also grateful to Margaret Mollo who so generously gave her time to go on errands for us many times. Finally, we sincerely thank the business establishments, parents, relatives and friends who have so graciously supported the publication of this year- book.
