The ODT Requests
All Saint Mary’s agreed to tlie
fact that we wanted a spring vaca
tion, but many, including 80 per
cent of the Seniors, wanted more to
give it up if doing so would help the
American war effort in any way.
The local ODT said that it would
help; the Washington ODT said
that 300 additional travelers would
But now the request has been is
sued that some 300,000 students all
over the country give up their vaca
tions so that men and materials may
be transported. We did not hack
our jiatriotism with action before,
but now we are hardly in the posi
tion to defy the Government author
ity. And can we stand, as patriotic
citizens, and fail to comply with a
Government request ?
Our Part In Victory
The American flag now flies over
the liberated prison camps and burn
ing buildings of Manila—MacAr-
thur has returned.
Eussian troops stand almost in
sight of the outskirts of Berlin, and
Allied forces hammer more success
fully on the Western Front.
The “Big Three” are meeting
again, this time to discuss the ending
of the war and the coming of the
Yes, we have seen the passing of
the “end of the beginning” and the
“beginning of the end.” Soon, per
haps, we will see the end—the end
of hostilities, but the heginning of
Our men and our allies will be
responsible for the coming military
victory. Their sacrifices will have
paid the price. But our fight will
be just beginning with the coming
of peace. It is the duty, the privi
lege, of the women of the country

Eemarks: Phil’s most notorious
claim to fame this year is her daily
phone calls and letters from the same
source. One of Saint Mary’s few
natural blondes and one of the most
capable seniors, Phyllis is also en
vied for her ability to spell almost
every word in the English language.
She’s a fond lover of Hag’s Head
and a perpetual loafer, but she al
ways manages to get everything

to bring their men back to the nor
mal life of home; and it is also our
duty to see that this peace will he a
lasting one and that our sons will
never be called to war as the two
generations before them have been.
That is our future after this war;

trust—“wo cannot break faith with
those who die . . .” We must not,

Eemarks: Annette’s always en
thusiastic about something from the
doings of “Gypsy,” her dog, to the
Chanel Ho. 5 from her father. Be
ing an Army “brat,” she’s been to
some twelve different schools so far;
so naturally she loves to travel, but
she’s also fond of horses. In spite
of the varied education, she’s still
able to collect top grades in practi
cally all subjects.
As For Music
Eemarks: Epicurianism, Aristotle
and Plato this year are transformed
into Carolina-ism, Vogue and .War
Bond Drives. Anna Margaret is
either dashing off to a literary so
ciety meeting or to a hockey game.
W e’re all quite sure that she could
have great success as a chef as a
result of her well-known one dish
meals she concocts in Holt.
