IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE By Mindy Bell How many times lately have you walked down the halls of school and heard passing people “It’s hard to believe. ” say, Then, when you think about what’s been said, it IS hard to be lieve that this year at St. Mary’s is drawing to a close and that new people and ideas are coming out of winter hibernation. The month of March is here at last bringing with it Spring and the end of the third quarter. And Easter is only a m o n t h away bringing term papers and plans for Easter trips. After Easter, it’s only a short jump to May Day and Graduation—the reward of two years of hard work and of fun. Then everyone will be off to the beach to show off new bathing suits that are already in shop windows and figures that are the • results of hours of hard exercise. Thinking of all these things and more, you want to join in and say, “It’s hard to believe!” CIRCLE WALKS AND TAKES IN FOUR On February 26, the Circle walked for four seniors.

This year is election year not only at the state and national levels, but also here at St. Mary’s. When voting for a President or Governor, people think twice and weigh all the facts before they make a final decision and cast their votes. They want a leader who is capable and qualified to represent them. This too is how it should be at St. Mary’s. The most significant elections—those to choose the leaders of the student body for the 1968-1969 year—will be held in the next two weeks. These elec tions are of vital importance, for in them the leaders are selected. These leaders will shape the future of St. Mary’s as they guide the students and mold school policy. Thus it is imperative that each student votes for a candi date not because of friendship but because of her qualifications. Being quali fied is much more than just grades. A Student Government Officer must be a dedicated person, who is a willing leader who shows a genuine love for and interest in the school and its Improvements. A Student Government Officer must be willing to put the welfare of the school and its students before herself. To be effective, she must not only have power but also know how to exert it: she cannot “let it go to her head and be power crazy.’’ She must be a lalson between the students and the admin istration. In order to do this, she must be able to get along well and feel at ease with both groups. A quite important quality is that she must uphold the highest personal standards because she sets the example that the entire stu dent body will pattern its behavior from. These are the most important elections to be held during the St. Mary’s year. Therefore, the student body should approach this coming event with seriousness of intent. Popularity should not take precedence over qualifica tion. Only under good leadership can a school grow and flourish. This leader ship results from the election of the best candidate and the election of the best candidate is the responsibility of the entire student body. Thus, the stu dents have an Important job too. Since the responsibility for choosing St. Mary’s leaders rests squarely on their shoulders, it is their duty to acquaint themselves with the candidates and their qualifications. Votes should be used wisely: they should represent rational decisions rather than emotional prejudices. Uemember: the future of St. Mary’s rests in your hands.
