Honor Society Organized For High School Initiations are to be held very soon for the High School Honor So ciety. The organization will be the first of its kind at St. Mary’s. Since the high school here at St. Mary’s includes only two years, the Honor Society is not a member of tbe National Honor Society which requires a three year curriculum. However the charter is basically like that of the national organization in that membership is based upon scholarship with due consideration of character. Candidates are high school seniors who have spent the previous year at St. Mary’s and who have a 3.5 QPR or B+ average on-the basis of a minimum of four academic courses per semester. Candidates will be elected by an election committee consisting of the President of the school or his repre sentative, the Dean of Academic Af fairs, the Dean of Students, and three high school faculty members. The newly elected faculty members are Mrs. Henderson, Mr. Roberts, and Mrs. Michael Smith. All members of the Honor Society must maintain their B+ average to remain in the club. This organiza tion is not a service organization, but an organization to recognize and en courage scholarship. Guest Professors On Campus Last Week Two guest professors were on campus Monday, January 11, to dis cuss creativity with the faculty and a few students. The professors were Dr. Taylor, from the University of Utah, and Dr. Shinn, from the Uni versity of North Carolina at Wil mington. Dr. Taylor is a professor of psychology and Dr. Shinn teaches Religion and philosophy. GROUNDHOG DAY February 2, is just around the corner. Let’s hope he doesn’t see his shadow or we will have six more weeks of winter wonderland. The Day Students House has been moved and is being anchored and air-conditioned. The framework for the second story of the chaplain’s house has been started. The Hob- goods are expected to be in the house before the opening of school next year. Ground will be broken for the new classroom building the first part of February. It is scheduled for com pletion by next November. Mr. Biggs, tbe new business manager, told Mr. Witten that three class rooms could be set aside for (1) dat ing, (2) sandwich machines, which have been ordered, and (3) a tele vision room for student use. This building will be air-conditioned. New Class Room Building To Be Constructed Soon The Development Department is busy finalizing plans for the new classroom building which is to be built behind Cheshire. The bid open ing will be held January 26 in the Library. At this time contractors will present their sealed estimates of the building cost. The lowest bid will be accepted and the firm who presented it will be hired to build the new ad dition. A ground breaking ceremony for this new building will be held February 1, at 4:00 P.M. The stu dent body is invited. UNICEF PROJECT IS SUCCESSFUL The UNICEF cards and calendar sales at St. Mary’s netted $575, sixty dollars over last year’s sales. These figures were released by Mrs. Mary Barham, UNICEF coordinator for the Woman’s Club. She said that al though many colleges contracted to participate in the sale, St. Mary’s was the only one to fulfill their com mittment and to sell the cards and calendars. Mrs. Barham wishes to thank the girls at St. Mary’s, espe cially Trish Potter and Cynty Mc Allister, who devoted much time and effort in organizing the sale.
