STUDENT BODY FACES GRAVE SITUATION
Wednesday, January 12, in a student body meeting,
Mary Louise Eiddick, student body president, discussed
tbe problem of cheating at Saint Mary’s. She empha
sized the point that though there are weak members in
every group, it is amazing that there should be 6 cases
of cheating in a school of two hundred and sixty-five
girls who are well above the average generally. It is
amazing because cheating still goes on in spite of re
peated warnings, responsibility to parents, and in spite
of the fact that the offenders are Saint Mary’s girls
"With a tradition of prominence and integrity to uphold.
Particularly as exam time draws near Saint Mary’s
students must act as a unit to remedy this situation.
If is not the faculty’s, but the students’ responsibility
^nd duty. Mary Louise feels that as “Saint Mary’s
girls, they are worthy of the dependence.”

SAINT .MARY’S SINGS FOUR SONGS
On January 5th, in assembly. Miss Scott conducted
another in the series of the student body sings usually
held by Mr. Jones. Jo Pope accompanied at the piano.
Miss Scott selected American Folk Songs as the type
of music for study and explained that although some
critics argue that America is too young and too hetero
geneously peopled to have any folk songs, there are
several types: The songs of other nations now identified
with America, Negro spirituals, mountain melodies,
Indian music, cowhoy, patriotic, and occupational songs,
as well as nonsense songs, like “Horses Eun Around.”
The student body enjoyed the singing although Miss
Scott seemed to have difficulty in wrangling enthusiasm.
Nancy Murchison took the leader’s part in “Swing Low,
Sweet Chariot,” and she did well. We anticipate more.
