It has endeavored to provide the girls with the modern facilities and teach- ing necessary to build in its students a firm foundation in an interest so important in this Atomic Age. The newly organized Science Club offers an opportunity to all pursuing science or math courses, to become better ac- quainted with and to appreciate more fully the vast world of science. Sis- ter Mary Olga, R.S.M. as head of the Science Department has earnestly given her essential support and en- thusiasm to scientific minds of to- morrow. Officers and Moderator of the very active Van- guard Science Club are Frances Thomas. Frances Moson. Sister Mary Kateri. R.S.M., Joan Macomber. and Margaret Griffin. Sister Mary Olga R.S.M., M.A. The preparation of oxygen is one of the first important ex- periments performed in the chemistry laboratory. Irene Pie- traszek. Mary .Xnn Christenson. Judith Gorman.

M. are Patricia Vasconcelles, Maureen Arruda, Jean- nette Costa. and Denise Rounds. "Crystals as Radio Frequency Detectors" is the title of the experiment which merited Louise Boulay Hon- orable Mention in the Diocesan Science Fair.

The Com- mercial Course offers full instruction in stenography, typing, bookkeeping, and office practice. The Mount girls are trained to be- come such skills and ef- ficient workers that they can feel confident as they meet with the challenges of the business world. Barbara Plummer, Doreen Busse. and Carol McCormick seem to agree that ap- pearance is a necessary asset in the commercial field. In the Business Course at the Blount. the girls learn shorthand and acquire a working knowledge of transcription.

The Past Lives in the Present In an attempt to understand present day problems and to find workable solutions for them in the light of Christian principles is a fundamental reason for students to undertake the study of history. One of the educational highlights of the Freshman year is Wo1'ld History. Every student includes this subject in her program. American History is also a re- quired course and is usually taken in the senior year. The student may elect Modern History which emphasis current events by analyz- ing the news as it is presented in the weekly news magazines. ' I' ,ff -- 5 ,if ,, -, x . I x. ' y r . --, .X . . .

DEB TI G As a member of the Narragensett Forensic League the Mount debators begin their seasonal debates in Jan- uary. Each school in the league meets with ten other schools. This year the topic is concerned with the labor prob- lem's which confront us. The girls particularly enjoy the annual tournaments held out all day sessions at Stonehill College, North Easton and at Providence College, Providence, Rhode Island. In the prep- aration for the formal debating sea- son the students participate in week- ly panel discussions and intramural debates on current labor problems. Margaret Griffin holds the attention of her audience as she argues for increased labor legislation.

November 10, 1958, was a truly glittering' night when "Moonlight and Roses" went surging through carefully- coiffured heads of bewitched juniors. It was the night of the Junior Prom. To the delightfully flowing strains of the Charles Perry Orchestra, our seventy dreamers tripped the light fan- tastic with their tuxedo-garbed escorts at the Hotel Yi- king in Newport, Rhode Island. The enchantingly-gowned young' ladies first went to the Academy au- ditorium to introduce their young men to the faculty.

Kathleen Ilemers, Vivian Byron, and Anna Machado look the dignified role of future homemakers. In the tradition of the Mount, autumn brings the annual ring ceremony. The juniors are presented their rings by the seniors.

Leadership has been distinctive in our stu- dent heads for the academic year 1959-1960. Through their formative work in the newly organized student council. school spirit has reached newer and greater heights. Character has been exemplified by the self sacrifice and dedicated spirit of these leaders of all our school organizations. They have been unsparing with their time and talents and have brought to a successful conclusion all under- taken tasks. Scholarship is a personal characteristic which each of these leaders shares with her co- leaders. It is also one of the aims of all our curricula and co-curricula activities. Loyalty is measured by service. These girls have been truly Mount girls in every sense and have served their organizations well. The faculty and students commend the stu- dent leaders of the class of 1960. Sincere thanks is due them for work well done.

TARS of the SEASONS MT. ST. MARY ACADEMY asf 'ST N ff 'AW elf fe ,,. - During Four years at Mount Saint Mary Academy nine students maintained honor status. These honor students are all enrolled in the classical course. In addition to their four year course in Latin, they have taken the full science program of biology, chemis- try, and physics. Their mathematics program has consisted of two years of algebra, one year of geometry, trigonometry, and survey of mathematics. Two years of social science, four years of English and two or three years of French in addition to electives have com- pleted their academic program. These nine students all aspire to higher education and have been accepted at the liberal arts college of their choice. The faculty and their fellow classmates take justifiable pride in lauding the honor students of the class of 1960.
