Use of Petitions in SGA
Implies Ideal Relationships
Perhaps the loudest cheers of the term met the amiouncemciits of tlie
approval by Dr. Stone of certain student petitions. The permissions
granted through the petitions indicate three definite and important
aspects, which by all means should be realized, of life at St. Mary’s.
Undeniably, the use of petitions would not be satisfactory without the
cooperative spirit shown by the administration in regard to petitions.
The willingness not only to accept them, but also to consider at length
the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed changes offers con
clusive evidence that the faculty and the students are on splendid rela
Willingness to grant student wishes further indicates respect on the
part of the faculty for students. Permissions for 12:00 ni. dating on
Saturday nights for upperclassmen and 11:00 P.^L for underclassmen
and permission to go to local clubs previously off limits would never
have been granted had the administration doubted the dependability of
On the other hand, the changes incurred by the approved petitioiis
show a definite tendency among the students to seek more responsibility,
personal and group. Certainly girls realize the tremendous responsi
bility they take upon themselves when they, keep a car at school for use
on week ends during their senior year.

kStudents taking advantage of
such permissions obligate themselves to their families, to schoolmates,
and to their school. One “wreckless” step can lead to severe restrictions
which would take away the advantage of the permission.
It’s a privilege to be able to file petitions. It’s a challenge to live up
to all they imply.
The big news in Ontario tonight
centers around the Bigwin Inn in
Huntsville. The story concerns two
imports from America, Ann Gregory
and Peggy Flythe. The Bigwin Inn
is known as one of the finest vaca
tion spots in Canada. This is no
longer the case. The two young
Americans have disrupted things.
You see, they are working as wait

In three days we’ll be saying “so long” to a. lot of our friends, to
all the seniors and commercial students, to many sophomores, and to
some freshmen and juniors. We are going to miss them, especially
next September 13. We’ve had some memorable times, excitement, and
fun with them this term as well as hard work and study. To those who
are leaving us, we say, “Farewell, we lioj)e to see you again some day;
in the meantime work hard, but have fun too. We wish you all the luck
in the world.” To those who are returning, we say, “Have a great
summer, and we’ll see yoTi again in Septeml)er.”

Malay’s. The song of spring is heard
in the patter of many feet racing
to find a place in the sun on the
sunporch of Smedes; in the tinkle
of ice as tea is served once more in
the dining room; in gasps of femi
nine amazement as boys come calling
in walking shorts and knee socks;
in the rustle and swish of cotton
dresses upheld by many layers of
crinoline; in the crack of a bat as
softball reigns during gym period.
A prelude of warning enters the
air as exam schedules are posted.
The week of trial then begins with
a dirge of serious faces as quiet
fills the halls. The reckoning ends
and judgment is passed: exam
grades are posted and songs of
thanksgiving fill the air.
A chorus of anticipation fills the
air as trunks and lockers are
brought forth from their hiberna
tion and placed outside each room.
Wails of woe issue from unhappy
throats whose owners have collided
with these objects in the dark of
night. Anticipation’s lyrics are also
heard in the scratch of f)en on paper
as returning juniors hesitatingly
draw up their summer reading lists.
An ode of farewell is heard in the
softly stirring folds of graduation
gowns, carefully pressed and hung;
in the thud of brown boxes, crammed
to the fullest capacity with many
possessions; these are the final, last
details. This is the symphony of
commencement—it can be heard

Thank you, Ontario.

which is even more devastated after
the arrival of several touring so-
called “St. Mary’s Belles.”
The international situation
grim today. Two young American
girls, Alice Bost and Lorrie Clark,
caused quite a disturbance in Paris
last night when they appeared at the
world renowned nightspot, “Max
ims,” in Bermuda shorts. Another
American miss, Sally Wood McMul'
Ian, added to the chaos when she
disappeared from the Browneh
Tours Inc. while in Rome. It seem®
Miss McMullan was so intent on
meeting Vitorrio Gassman that she
missed her boat to Venice. ShelFy
