IN GOD’S HOUSE
When we visit a friend, most of
us have enough manners to be polite
and considerate of that person, at
least while we are in her house.
The same should hold true when
we are in God’s house, but more
often than not, giggling and talking
betray our rudeness.
“Oh! look at that cute hat over
“Isn’t it darling? I declare, she
always wears the cutest clothes!”
The church is the house of God,
and, if we can’t be reverent there,
as we should, the least we can do is
be quiet. The purpose of a church
service is not to give us an oppor

Certain members of the senior

be a question of mine or yours.

Remarks: Bright “puppy dog”
eyes, short cropped hair, little pug
nose, and a cute little figure all go
together to mean “Spot.” She’s al
ways happy and full of life, and
you’d know her anywhere by that
gay laughter. Proof of her creative
talent in the art line are the murals
drawn in the publications room.
Friendly, co-operative, and lots of
fun describe the senior class vice-
sunporch came into use. SMS stu
dents take their “Life” second-hand
by necessity, not preference.
With Spring comes, as usual, a
slight taste of onions in the milk. It
may not be as good as Kick-a-Poo
Joy Juice but in strength it’s the
best Saint Mary’s has to offer.
Decorations for the Junior-Senior
seem to present the problem at pres
ent. Dates may be required to fur
nish their own fire extinguishers and
not for protection against the girls.

Remarks : Mary is one of the few
girls who really deserves the word
“sweet.” She has been working like
a Trojan all year on that recital of
hers, and from all reports it will be
wonderful. Outside of being a fine
musician, she rates also as a “good-
all-round” person and one you’d be
proud to call a friend.
