A New Facial
As the Raleigh newspaiiers ap
propriately put it, “Saint Mary’s
has had its face lifted.” When
you drove up to school on Sept.
17, you probably tvondered “Why
all the torn-up drives, dirt, piles
of bricks, and heaps of sand!” Out
of this confusion we have new
tvalks and an elegant netv flag
stone entry flanked on both sides
bj’ boxtvoods. The old girls tvill
remember how the drive came di:
rectly up to the foot of Smedes
Hall steps. Notv our new drive
comes only to the end of the new
Instead of the original sandy
tvalks, netv brick ones lead our
way to the chapel, to both East
and West Rock, and to the Little
Store. Though not quite finished
yet, at the rate they are progress
ing it won’t be long now'. We’ve
also had grass planted over the
A great deal of effort and hard
w'ork has been expended to make
all of these changes. To show' our
appreciation of the new' beauty of
the campus, let’s all co-operate to
keep it unmarred and beautiful.
Few' people of the w'orld today
realize w'hat an important effect
the meeting of the United Nations
will have, not only on our lives
but on the lives of the children of
today and tomorrow'. These men,
from all nations, are deciding how'
this w'orld w'ill be in the future—
a gigantic task for so few' men.
The responsibility for all deci
sions made is placed upon their
shoulders; these decisions w'ill not
only affect us now but they w'ill
direct and rule this w'orld in gen
erations to come.
Any one nation could threaten
to destroy the possibility of inter
national peace by bringing in its
ow'ii petty w'hims. United Nations
representatives should be think-
“The ballots are all in and the
girl has been chosen! She is none
other than Elizabeth Mj'att.” If
Saint Mary’s had a contest for the
“best smile,” “Liddybett,” w'ell
know'll here for her cheerful smile,
w'ould jirobably win!
This “Belle of Saint Mary’s” is
from Goldsboro. Very active in
student government, she is vice-
president of the student body,
member of the Circle, and a hall
“Liddybett” is fond of all food,
and her favorite color is green.
She’s just w'ild about Carolina and
“Goody.” Although she has not
sent in her “implication” yet,
“Liddybett” hopes to attend the
Universitv of North Carolina next
Yes, that’s “Liddybett”—the
gal w'ith the laughing green eyes
and sparkling smile.

Most people are aware of the
tremendous destruction w'hich
would occur if w'e w'ere engaged
in w'orld conflict again. If a sin
gle nation should attempt to as
sume complete leadership in or

destroy entirely the principle for

that W'ill insure peace not just for

This is our ultimate goal—but un

can repeat itself in an even dead
