Hints Or Musts
1. Don’t forget an evening dress
for the Old Girl-New Girl
party on the first Saturday
night after you arrive.
2. Be sure to bring chambrays
and other summer clothes for
the first hot weeks of school—
you’ll need them.
,3. A sewing kit is a must for
rips and snags.
4. Coathangers; you might stick
in a few.
5. Beanies are grand for shop
6. A clothes rack is nice to bring
along, but if you can’t find
one, just bring a length of
7. Pictures, curtains, rugs, bu
reau scarves, and bedspreads
make vour room cozier.
8. Bring your own lamps too, if
you want to be sure you have
the kind von like.
9. Bring a light suitcase, for
“Saturday nights” or Thanks-
10. Don’t forget shoe bags. You

to depend on your roommate’s
WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT SAINT MARY’S
Arrive at Saint Mary’s with a
self-addressed envelope, stamped,
with a sheet of stationery inside.
This is in case your parents don’t
bring you to school. You can find a
pen soon after you arrive, so as to
tell your parents that you are on
the doorstep and have arrived and
are happy, or wdiatever you are.
If you arrive by train, look out
for Mr. William C. Guess, or some
other faculty member who will see
after your baggage and see that you
are put into a taxi that will carry
you to school. If you arrive by bus,
look for some faculty member who
will see that you get a taxi to school.
Wear your Saint Mary’s identifica
tion badge so that faculty members
can identify you and more quickly
make arrangements to get you to the
school. Y’^our trunk tickets should
be turned over to faculty members to
Please remember that the first day
of school is at best a scrambling of
new students, and old ones who are
trying their best to make things
pleasant for you. They are at the
Officers Explain Hall System on
To all the incoming students of
Saint Mary’s we extend a hearty
welcome. We are looking forward
with great anticipation to meeting
you new girls and helping you find
your places in school life at Saint
Mary’s. Soon your “newness” will
leave you and you will become
part of our school—one of us. If
in any wayAve can be of help to
you, in finding your way around
the campus or answering any
questions you may ask, don’t hesi
tate to call on us. We, the old
girls, will be there, ready to help
vou at aiiv time.
school for the one purpose of seeing
that you are taken care of, register
when you should, and generally find
your place as to rooms, old girl ad
visers, and where you can find your
first easiest comforts.
Another word of caution. When
you arrive in Raleigh, the tempera
ture probably will be high. For
your own comfort, arrange to arrive
dressed in cooler things. Those first
two days will be stingers for heat,
j)i-obably. After the first day, you’ll
be amazed to find how easily every
thing comes to you.
During the first weeks of school
you will be taught the rules of the
school in Student Handbook
classes instructed by a student. In
these classes you will not only
learn the rules but also undei’-
stand why these rules are neces
sary. It is for jmur benefit that
rules are made. It is up to you to
live up to them.
Y^ou will be introduced to our
Student Government Association.
This organization cannot function
unless it has the able support of
each and every girl. By learning
the rules in your Handbook and
by living up to Student Govern
ment regulations, you can make
life easier and more enjoyable for
yourselves and your associates.
At Saint Marj^’s next year Stri
dent Government is taking a step
forward, a step that involves the
co-operation of every girl in
school. There is always one group,
one class who will not wait for
some one else to move ahead, but
who takes the responsibility them
selves. Next year’s seniors liave
proven to be sucli a group.
This year and every year be
fore, it has been customary at
Saint Mary’s to elect on each hall
two students to act as hall presi
dent and vice-president. This plan
has become unsatisfactory; the
students who were elected at the
beginning of their first year at
Saint Mary’s were as unfamiliar
with the rules and the life of the
school as tlie girls whom they
were appointed to lead.
A plan has been worked out,
such as is in use in many schools',
of putting two seniors on each hall
