her marshaling duties with such
poise and. ease. They will he very
surprised when the basketball games
start to see the Margo maneuver
skillfully over the court with her
pretty black hair bouncing on her
shoulders. Yes, our Margo seems
to be quite the “all-round girl.”
And, incidentally, please note the
picture of the “Hollywoodish” look
ing male she has in her room.

Now that everyone is back at
school and exams are over, we must
turn over a new leaf and,try and do
better in the coming semester. The
exams showed many that they had
not really studied as hard during
the last semester as they thought.
Too many peoj)le tried to get by in
their dail.y work and had to cram.

This semester we should try to
concentrate, and learn our lessons,
then go out and have a good time.
It is much better to really work, and
then play, than to try to mix work
and play and get nothing done. Too
many times we waste our time in
study hours writing letters when we
should be studying. In the coming
seuK'ster let us resolve to get more
out of our work at Saint Mary’s,
and it will mean much more to all of
us after we leave Saint Mary’s.

characteristics of Mary Helen. She
loves to have a good time and has
gone mad about playing bridge.
Every spare moment she dashes up
to 3rd West Wing and joins the
foursome. Mary Helen with her
charm and poise is one of the most
attractive girls in the senior class

WILL WE FAIL?
Is the United Nations Organiza
tion going to bo a failure? Is the
co-operation of the leading nations
of the world what is needed if those
nations nevertheless arm for war?
Against whom are the principal na
tions arming if the countries that
caused the Second World War are
ke])t in submission? Against them
selves, obviously. While attempting
to .mrk together to settle the prob
lems of the world and insure ever
lasting peace, these big nations are
not disarming. Evidently there is
very little trust among the larger
powers of the UNO, and without
faith in one another, regardless of
the proposals of the UNO, the
United Nations Organization can
never settle the difficulties of the
smaller countries. The smaller coun
tries can have no respect for their
leaders who have no respect for each
other. Until the ruling powers, the
United States, Russia, and Great
Britain, have learned to respect one
another, not to fear one another, to
forget war against one another, and
to work together in harmony, noth
ing will be permanently accomplish
ed by the organization. Until the
leading nations co-operate fully and
confide completely in each other,
they cannot expect to govern them
selves, much less lead and help a
group of smaller nations.

Letters to the Editor
The library is the place where
one should ho especially quiet at all
times, but lots of people use it as a
I)lace to talk and have a good time.
It has been very noisy lately when
many of us have tried to study. The
noise subsides a little when Mrs.
Brown or Mrs. Neely come in, but I
think we are old enough to be quiet
Lots has been said, but nothing
definite seems to have been done,
about having a place where the
underclassmen can take their dates
on Saturday nights. The parlor is
fine on some occasions, but it would
be so nice if we had somewhere to
dance, play cards, and buy cokes.
Wo are eagerly looking forward to
the now recreation room in the base
ment of Holt, hut in the meantime,
it surely would be nice to have some
place to go. Can’t something he
