THANKS, AND GOOD-BYE
For the Belles the new year will
begin with the next issue as Ann
Jones takes over the job of editor
for May. The staff will remain as
usual, and Mary Glen, Emma Katie,
and Charlotte will continue their
work, but slowly the Belles will be
changing into new hands.
A lot of work by a lot of people
has gone into making the Belles
appear every other Friday, and these
people deserve our appreciation:
The writing staff, for getting that
article in week after week; for writ
ing and rewriting; for chasing peo
ple all over school for those endless
details; for just being in the Publi
cations Room every Monday night.
Mary Glen Slater, for her faith
fulness and competence in checking
and rechecking everything; for her
help in those Thursday afternoon
sieges in shaping the Belles into the
send)lance of a newspaper; for fur
nishing headlines and moral support.
Emma Katie Guion and the circu
lation staff for having the Belles
delivered to your room, and Char
lotte Hoffman for mailing them out
Mr. Moore, and all the other fac
ulty members who have helped the
Belles; and the printers, who have
been so helpful and obliging.
The student body, who have read
the Belles, contributed the news, and
offered helpful suggestions.
WeVe had the usual headaches,
hut it’s been fun. Good luck, Ann.
Thanks, and good-bye.

After two sessions of debate on
Spain, the council adjourned with

land, Russia, France, and Mexico
are shown favoring a diplomatic
break with Franco. The Nether
lands, Britain, and Brazil are
against such a move. The United
States and China are uncommit

heard. Poland needs seven af
firmative votes out of the eleven

Russia clearly intends to try to
