THE YEAE IS EKDED
Tomorrow at one o’clock the 1938-39 school year at
Saint Mary’s will end. Eor three months, 15 days,
and 11 hours we are going our merry way with no
thought of short stories, research papers, essays, history
tests, or 7 :00 o’clock bells. We are going to flit about
the country-side seeking madly to right and left for
pleasure, fun, gayety. We shall be social “gad-ahouters.”
All the things we have dreamed of for nine months
we will now have time to accomplish. Think of all
the letters we shall be able to write, all the shows we
can see, all of the hooks we can read, all of the places
we can go. We, like the gorgeous butterfly who
emerged from the plain cocoon, shall give up the severe,
heavy garments of the student and don the silken robes
of the pleasure seeker. Oh, sublime thought! Eap-
turous moment! SCHOOL IS EKDED . . . YACA-
TIOK IS HEEE!
Goodbye to the Pranks—That you got in a jam for.
Goodbye to exams—That you stayed up to cram for.
Goodbye to the Quizzes—^you didn’t prepare for.
Goodbye to the subjects—That you had a “snap” in.
Goodbye to the Classrooms—That you used to nap in.
Goodbye to them all! Shed a tear as vou’re parting
And GOOD LUCK TO YOU KOW
In the LIFE THAT YOU’EE STAETIXG.
STEEAM OF COXSCIOUSXESS
Being the meditation of a Junior, a Senior, and an
Junior—Exams all over, never thought I’d pass—
guess that makes me just about a Senior—a Senior?
Glory be, I can’t ever be a Senior. I ain’t got no
dignity—but neither have they at times, like at the
school party—but they’ve got the brains and I haven’t—
or maybe they know how to look like it—that first day
and my big sister was so sweet to me and I never did
think I’d get where she is—who says it’s fun to be a
Senior? I’m going to spend all next year being sorry
S’emor-Course we’ve got our faults, but who hasn’t?
somehow I think ours are right attractive—also I
have to admit we’re a mighty swell class, but of course
I wouldn t say so in public-—darn if I won’t miss the
school and those cute Juniors—Juniors in our rooms—
the idea! Time is going powerful fast and pretty soon
we 11 be too old to do anything—^guess I better decide
quick whether I want a career or a man.
An Historic Walt—We’ll miss ’em, bless ’em, but “the
old order changeth”—gettin’ real excited to see whether
they’ll have anything new to cry about. Dear old
Dr. Smedes—hoAv I wish he could be here to sav fare
well to a grand-bunch of girls, the Class of 1939."
EUTH DOEIS SWETT EEYISITS
Miss Euth Doris Swett, of Southern Pines, an etcher
of great reputation and one of the very extra-special
alumnse of Saint !Mary s, is visiting Mrs. Cruikshank
and the school. She has been in Florida for the winter
(December until April), and has returned to Xorth
Carolina to resume her studies of the pine tree, and
more particularly the longleaf pine of the district of
Miss Swett uses the dry-point method, which she says
fits_ her subject matter of trees best. She is doing a
series of etchings of the period of growth of the pine
and has just finished two of the group, one of the
candles of the longleaf pine and the other of the blos
soms. One of her pine plates won the Martin Medal
of the Florida Federation of Arts this winter. Prints
of her etching of Smedes Hall, which Saint Mary’s
gives to all her brides, have been exhausted, and now
Miss Swett is doing another one of Smedes Hall, this
time from an angle, and also will do one of the chapel if
she has time while she is here.
The Allied Arts Association of Winter Park, Florida,
claims her for its chairman, and she is also a member
of the American Federation of Arts, The Art Students’
League of Xew York, The Washington Water Color
Club, The Eockport Art Society, The Palm Beach Art
League, The Four Arts • Club of Palm Beach. The
