Retreat The Junior and Senior retreat takes on a special meaning as the day of embarkment into the world outside school draws near. The role God has planned for His young Catholic women to follow is very skillfully and tenderly exposed in conferences given by the Retreat Master. The retreatants learn that womanhood is a glorious gift of God which is rich in the rewards it of- fers and strict in the responsibil- ities it demands. Perfection in Mary's way is the goal of young Models of Mary. The Juniors pray the rosary devoutly, as just one way of showing praise to God during the yearly retreat at Mount Mercy. 38 Retreat is the time to draw closer to God, to become perfect in the love and practice of Ca- tholic principles. Through con- ferences, spiritual reading, and personal reflection, comes the knowledge of the infinite value of Catholic Faith. The students resolve to lead holier lives, to be sure that they become fitting temples of the Holy Spirit. v 9 wmv 39 ,+L V ,en , Fr - ,435 b ."7 w1 f.,,A T 1 ,A fe','f'if1t1'E'ef-,J A N fn ,f.fssX rg e we ' ig If PIE' 1 '3 'Ki Rev.

Kanton. e Mercians find in advanced mathematics a per- sonal challenge and a fascination. This is evident in the numbers of students who elect sohd geometry and trigonometry and in the enthusiasm with which new ndiscoveriesn are discussed. Here are a few asides overheard: HI had never dreamed that details of our super highway were an figured out so completely before construction was even begun? nB1ueprint construction looks like a promising career for a math-minded girl!n . . . and on and on. Worth the concentration and study?

Probing the wonders of this World and moving on to explore the still unknown aspects of His creation form a fascinating subject of study. Science students are schooled to meet problems of the present scientific age through training in Um scientific meth- od. Logical and critical thinking, sys- tematic problem solving, and methodical organization are developed in both lab- oratory and elassroomg both experiences combine to form in students a mmentific attitude. Progressing at their own rate of work individual ingenuity can be displayed when students figure out tedmical prob- lcms involved in experiments. Personal responsibility and mental development characterize the diligent student of science. 56 She Biology Chemistry e-While P.A. Dondzila and C,Bustraan collect oxy- gen by water displacement, M.

Whether going to work by choice or by necessity, each can like what she is doing by having training for a particular job. A girl can spotlight success for herself by sf achieving skill in short- hand, typewriting, trans- cription, and the use of some business machines. Careers in business often are interim, prefacing matrimony and home life. Her on-the-job experiences will provide better under- standing of a mans World and so make her a more interesting and understanding wie. For the student going to college, typewriting and shorthand may prove a shortcut to long hours spent on papers and notes. Early insight into the sub- jects may prove an incentive for advanced training for a career in businesscr in the teaching field. 1 I-I 5-4 58 45,1 R E In preparing for work in the commercial field the girls at Mt.

ONCE A MERCIAN, ALWAYS A MERCLLN! 5 'i'fs4'f as I 1 We iff'-: Zo SENIORS FETED AT ALUM AE BREAKFAST All graduating students carry with th m the cherished memory of some particular incident occurring during their school days. As m m- bers of the Mount Mercy Alumnae Association, they are given the op- portunity to renew old friendshipa discuss class days, and visit the school where they spent so many happy hours. The induction of the Seniors in to the Alumnae is an annual event taking place at a Christmas Break- fast. Eagerly accepting this hon- or, the graduating seniors look forward to remaining a part of Mount Mercy always. Pictured are Rose Jarosz, chain man of the event, Philomena Medlin Glovick, toastmistress, Patricia Mooney Chicklon, Association pres- identg Dorothy O'Donnell Goggins and her daughter, Mary Jo--an alumnae mother-daughter team-- entertained and accompanied the carolers. Singing are C.Kaleta,G. Obiedzinski, B. Woods, R. Callanan and E. Couturier. Helping behind the scenes are Sister M. C1aver,L. VandenBerg, V.Benzer, and S.Larsons cy ' il K 2' , X Onward To Victory! Physical ducation G.A.A. G.A.A. officers M. Schumaker, S. Craig, P.L. Dondzila, and G. Bartz plan the volley ball schedule. Good sportsmanship builds fair-minded individuals. A wholesome outlook on life, as well as a healthy body is the aim of the physical education class There is never a dull moment at the Girls Athletic Association volley ball games. Competition is keen and spirits rise and fall in keeping with the score as the opposing teams battle on toward victory. Exercise nay bring a bit of exhaustion but it is nothing compared with the physical fitness felt after a limbering up period. Dancing, relays, baseball and other activities all help to make the gym program an interesting one. Sophomore girls line up in squads to be checked for attendance at gym. 88 Girls in Senior gym practice their exercises under the direction of Mrs, Theodora Hunt Segar. The game is on, and the Juniors test their skill in volley ball be competing with the Seniors. 89 Auxlllarles To Education - As much a part of school as books and pencils and indispensable to the functioning of education are these be- hind the scene workers. A collected mi in an emergency, a teacher in office practice, and a detective when a misplaced person is sought is our switchboard operator, Mrs. Seymour. Business thrives at the Bookstora This handy accessory to education not only places school day tools at the fingertips of the students but also furnishes the materials needed for be- tween time snacks. "Just a moment please." says Mrs. K. Seymour, switchboard operator at Ht. Mercy. Gloria Obiedzinski gives Merrie Carol Schumaker her money's worth in 'tater chips as other Seniors crowd the bookstore awaiting their turn. 90 The crew that keeps the school in shape stand duty to repair or renew anything in need of fixing or replacement. Dur- ing the stormy winters, they also vol- unteer their services to anyone caught hiasnwmmun Sister Mary Claver, the nchefn at wmunt Mercy, takes loving care in pre- paring the meals for the Mercians, who are grateful and thankful for her motherly qualities. As important as the girders of the building is the maintenance crew. Keep- ing the school warm,the corridors clean, the lights working and a host of other duties unknown, are all projects of these men. Our thanks to Mr. Adolph Mikulenas, Mr. Theodore Soheidel and Mr. Louis Scheidel. VX? Rb Satisfying young appetites is a full scale task. The Food Staff sees that nutricious meals are planned, prepared A and presented to hungry students. Credit must be given to the dishwashers for rendering daily service cheerfully. Clara Hormuth and Mrs. George Bunn help prepare the food, Cassie Pasikowski and Stephanie Pylyp- czuk distribute it, and Ethel Simmons smilingly accepts her job of keeping the dishes clean. .-,1. ag' ug?
