But before you start to scream let us have our say. Everyone here knows how annoy ing it is to he disturbed in an occa sional serious endeavor to study, (^uiet hour is the time which we ought to he able to count on for work which requires hard concen tration. The “person who forgets that it is quiet hour” herself often needs this time desperately, yet she can hardly expect other people to remember when she could not. Teachers find it hard to hold classes during the afternoon periods because inconsiderate students gath-' er around the post office and locker room talking, laughing, and making noise that seriously disturbs the near-by classes. The library should he a haven of silence; indeed, its most important rule is “quietness at all times.” Talking, tramping around, and the noisy handling of hooks and papers, however, make concentration often nigh impossible. liefusiiig others the quietness that we wish for ourselves could only he causc'd by thoughtlessness. 2sow, if you still feel like it, scream! But please do it where nobody will he disturbed in finishing that “tough assignment.” AXfJELUS TIME Angelus Time is a period that we students have set aj>art from our daily routine. It is a time of prayer. At 0:1.'» every afternoon a bugle is blown on the campus. A student, who has volunteered, enters the chapid and there prays. Our cam pus life is stilled as we all have prayers for our armed forces, wher ever they may be, in training or in actual combat. Ei'ery girl pauses at this time and observ'es our An gelus. Another day is ending, an other prayer is added; the potent breath of faith comforts us all. Take part in the Angelus. Every afternoon contribute your prayer. Angelus Time is short, but it is a time vibrating with the fierce hopes of us all. BELLES E.MILY Y'ANDELL WILLIAJISOX V IDETTE S.AV’AGE BASS Horne—Wilson. Age—almost 19.

Letters to the Editor NoY'ember 21, 1943. Dear Editor; In spite of the fact that Saint Mary’s new^ “building up” or “tear ing down” jirocess (wdiichever you prefer to call it) has been more rigid than new or former Saint Alary’s girls thought it ivould be, Yvhy gripe about it all the time? I doubt very seriously that the fre quent remarks about it in the Belles and the constant moaning of the student body will do much to mod erate it because this “toughening process” is being given in accord ance w'ith government requests. Here’s one member of the student body that is getting sick and tired of hearing about it. Hopefully, Gym. Dear Editor: I accidentally overheard the fol lowing conversation between several day students recentlv. 1st girl: “Have you done all oi your SYvimming?” 2nd girl: “No. I don’t have to- I got an excuse.” 1st: “You did? How in the woi'W did you do it ?” 2nd: “Oh, I just went up to nif doctor’s office and I said, ‘See herOi Dr. , I w'ant an excuse fi'O® swimming at Saint Alary’s School’ 1st: “What did he say?” 2nd; “He said, ‘Why?’ and I sai4' ‘Oh, I think I got a cold from goinf in the pool!’ So he wrote me ajl excuse and now I don’t hai'e to go-„ 1st: “Gee, I’m going to try that- Question : Who is losing ? Mrs. Guess. SAINT’S SALLIES Betty is another one of those Yvell- known seniors who seems to find an unbelievable amount of time in which to take part in all types of school activities, w’hether it happens to be a literary society meeting or a girl-break dance. Her friendliness and vivacity make her rate high while her brains and efficiency ac count for her success as a student. Betty holds the important offices of Senior Class Honor Council repre sentative and president of the Granddaughters’ Club, and is a member of the Political Science Club, the Altar Guild, and the Sigma Lambda Literary Society. Saint Alary’s School, Raleigh, N. C. Dear Editor; Due to the fact that we are re quired to swim the minimum of fii'e hours a semester, I wonder if it would be possible to heat the pool ? Frigidly yours, AYatee Log. And did we sally forth last w’cei . . . most of us dashed off as soon classes were over AVednesday had a marvelous time. In fad most of us seemed to have gone f** Rocky Alount. AA''as that D'j crowded? Transportation presentd various problems and amusing inci' dents. “Not two but a couple d us—,” according to Alary Holnie-i Yvere just a little confused by * mysteriously long word concerning the South and the North and stad' ing Yvith con—. Of course we didn * overstufl or get tired or anythinr’ but the infirmary was slightly occF pied Friday. Holt was pretty serted except for a few juniors ai^ AAYdnesday night a “man” was peeF ing in w'indoYvs, but Aliss Seed seared him off with a milk botth' Then Thursday night Caroline Lone was still scared so she promisd Betty Barnes that she wouldn’t snO'*^ (that’s rather pointless since sh® doesn’t snore anyway) if Befjf Yvould let her sleep in Alary ginia’s bed. Sunday night the sen' iors came in, pretty tired too; of them had been home but Iletse) Long went to AYest Point and t'*'’ Legg twins and their roommateSi Hannah and Harriett, went to An' napolis. . . . There is a new frat pV*. in our midst—chances are that ^ you see a Phi Gam ])in pinned on pajamas, Sallie Robertson is weaJ' ing both. . . .

Nancy AYood got a ho^ of red roses, Frances Shacklefo' sported an orchid, and Lucy UnF cock a Thanksgiving corsage, a from their “men.” AA^asn’t the foO|^ good Thanksgiving?
