President Pisants Letter To The Student Body
One of the great secrets in learn
ing to live together is the ability to
communicate. To speak and to hear.
To understand and to be understood.
Certainly life in this community
will improve and be far more rich
and meaningful if students are in
good communication with each other,
with faculty, and with the admin
To this end Mrs. Pisani and I
have begun a series of informal eve
nings with you all. These evenings
are optional. Dress is informal. The
agenda is yours. Through talking to
gether, exchanging ideas, sharing the
pluses and the minuses the St.
Mary s family should be far more
We have already had one such
evening, by the time you read this
we will have had a second. I am per
sonally delighted by the response.
We are beginning with new girls
(Freshmen then Juniors) and will
then share these times with the
Sophomores and Seniors.
In this same area of communica
tion I am also beginning a series of
meetings with SGA officers every two
weeks. Beyond that I am here in your
midst to share your life with you.
Many of you have found your wav
to my office. All are welcome.

Many of us here at SMJG can al
ready feel the Ghristmas spirit within
us. Some of us are even counting our
shopping days. While you are in the
process of preparing for a wonderful,
spirited Ghristmas, please take a few
minutes to think about others who
are not quite as fortunate. Today
there are many children not only in
other countries, right around us in
the U. S. who have never known
Ghristmas as a time of togetherness
and spiritual happiness, but know it
as any other day — one of hunger and
"Come on people now,
Smile on your brother,
Everybody get together.
Got to love one another right now."
This year our Senior class is try
ing to promote interest, spirit, and
deep concern for these people
through the UNIGEF Ghristmas
Gard Sale. The sale will begin the
week of November 16 and will last
up until a few days before exams.
The money earned from sales will be
sent to the LJNIGEF fund and dis
tributed to feed and clothe small
children. All boxes are $2.00 each,
and the calendars are $3.00 each.
Please take some time to think about
these jieople and just exactly what
Ghristmas means. Thank you.
UNIGEF Ghristmas cards and cal
endars have been ordered and should
be in by the time this paper comes
out. At the Senior class meeting Fri
day specific selling days and com
mittees were decided on. All seniors
are urged to make posters and to par
ticipate in this worthwhile project.

SMJC Girls Take Blind
Kids Out Trick Or Treating
Black cats, bats and lighted pump
kins seemed extra spooky for several
children from the Blind School. Go-
rinne Birdsong, Betsy Berger, Lynn
lonakin, Jackie Minges were among
the group who took these children
trick-or-treating. These and other
girls were volunteers from S.M.J.C.
One girl was assigned to each blind
student. It seems that the S.M.J.G.
girls got as much warmth and plea
sure from this experience as the blind
students did. Lynn summed up the
group's over-all reaction by saying “I
really felt appreciated.”
The purpose of Honor Week is to impress the importance of the
Honor System upon the students. This impression is supposed to last be-
yond Honor Week. In fact, it is supposed to last the whole year. It is
this impression that is supposed to keep the System working. And for St.
Mary s to function this Honor System has to work.

If the Honor System didn’t work, St. Mary’s would be utter chaos.
Life would be “What’s yours is mine and I’ll take it.” We could lose our
freedom and our rights in this community merely through the whims of
some selfish persons. People argue about the Honor Gode, especially about
the part which states that it is every girl’s duty to turn in a violator of
the rules. If this section did not exist and were not enforced, then the
students would lose the right to have their own personal propertv and to
create and do their own original work. They would lose their individuality.
To Make the Honor System work, the school must have the full sup
port of the students. One violator can ruin the whole system of trust. Each
girl IS the guardian of her own honor. Full support can come only if there
IS individual support. For most it is merely an exercise in self-respect and
respect for others. Everyone must learn to live and to treat others honor-
a y because the Real World is run on the Honor System and those who
do not live by it usually end up in prison. J. L D
