She’s Dressed Up
Belles of Saint Mary’s
Comes Saturday night, we find
our heroine standing in front of her
mirror, carefully putting on her
face. She is wearing what can only
be described as a creation, and she
looks like a million dollars. She
blots her lipstick, straightens her
seams, and gaily tells her roommate
to “take it easy.” Then she floats
gracefully down the stairs and into
She is the subject of dazzled
glances from the waiting hoys and
envious ones from the girls. Where
is she going? She must be waiting
for some lucky (and handsome) boy
to take her to a marvelous party.
But alas, no. Our unhappy heroine
is serving on what many people re
gard as the next thing to a chain
gang. This horror of horrors is
known as Saturday night page duty.
Page duty consists of smiling at
other people’s dates and calling the
girls down to the parlor. After about
three hours this becomes tiresome.
No, Saturday night page duty is not
an exciting job.
But buck up, girls! Some en
chanted evening a tall, handsoine,
dateless stranger may walk into the
parlor and then ... You take it from

REMEMBER THE HONOR
CODE DURING EXAMS
Having the Honor Council at Saint Mary’s should be considered a gi^ ^
privilege by all girls. The purpose of the council is not to punish gir s
they &ve wrong, but to train them to do right now so that they may be b
citizens in the future. ^
Now with examinations beginning there is a big temptation to forge
to overlook the honor system. Some girls think that their
much that it won’t hurt just to glance at another person s papei.
glancing is the same principal as copying the entire that
are perhaps a few girls who want a high grade badly enough to.
they can cheat the teacher by copying. In doing this tbej wiH only j,
cheMing themselves. The idea of going-to school is not ]ust to make
grades but to increase in knowledge. After all, a high giade will
great an asset to a girl in the years to .come as honesty will.
irirls abide by this rule, but some are not this considerate, ihe lattei ngei
on tlifpliLe^ Sometimes the operator has to ask a girl to limit her call two
or three times before she finally hangs up.
- 1 * + 1 Since the girls are put on their honor when taking an exam, the,y
se phones are for the use of all, but each must serve at least twenty advantage of the opportunity which is afforded them and realize
:. There are five outside lines, but each of these must^serve an ave^ entirely wrong to chedt. Therefore, this duty of honor is an imp
factor of life at Saint Mary’s.
Immediately before dinner, between dinner and f^
stiidv hall until 10 :10 o’clock are the rush periods. The calls come s
fast Uiat it is often hard for the operator to give a girl an outside line when
she asks for one. Graciously accepting this fact and waiting patiently show
consiferatffin to the operatof, who is trying her best to obtain an outside line.
Teachers and seniors, who have the liberty to ^se the phone dmung sWdy
liours have shown consideration by making their calls at these times. il ,
coZled with each girl’s limiting her calls and showing courtesy to II e
operators, adds to the spirit of cooperation that is an essential pait of
at Saint Mary’s.
Certctinly College Life Is Wondeyful!
At Least It Is To Those Who Dreai^
Each year the students at Saint Mary’s_ are given the ;PP°^“*y
petition for new privileges. This opportunity means a great deal to each
student and should not be abused. _ Also, rules f'^^/^oning
tions are sometimes abused. This is a threat to t e pi iv S P
because if the rules are not obeyed they can easily ,

On a beautiful Monday morning
in the merry, merry month of May,
Gorgeous Georgia, a typical Saint
Mary’s girl, sat on the sun deck
thinking of her activities for that
Since Monday was a day when all
the students were exhausted from the

every girl should remain in bed until

When drawing up a petition, each person should consider ®he [®a y

to whether a petition will he granted or rejected If he r^ects t
because he feels that it is best for the school, and the should accept
his decision. This does not mean that because one pe^tio i \
student body should quit petitioning for privileges. On the

After breakfast Gorgeous went to
“Clothes,” one of her hardest classes.
In this class she had an exception
ally hard test on earrings.
As the maid brought Gorgeous
Georgia’s lunch to her out on the
sun deck. Gorgeous began to worry
about her school work. Monday was
definitely her hardest day, she had
three classes on Monday. Besides
“Clothes,” she had “Shagging” and
“Movies.” Gorgeous was thoroughly
disgusted with “Shagging,” because
the football player who taught her
was blond, and she had so much
rather be taught by a brunette with
big brown eyes. She didn’t mind
“Movies” so much, because her class
