Whether or not to have the Junior-Senior dance has been the most fre-
qultly discussed subject among the junior and senior classes during the
cuted the decorating but also bore the complete expense of the dance.
Another argument for having the dance with the combined classes and o
first week end in May is early enough to avoid conflicts.
number would not crowd the dance excessively. ^
A commencement dance as has been suggested for the seniors se^ms ou
of the qu“stion because of the time and effort it iiecessitat duiii^
an already busy commencement week end. Some say that it is untaii
?he junioi s not to have a dance of their own but they have tins chance when

iiivolved with the dance, has_ voted .to have
May Day week end, and most indications show this to be a heaitily appioiea

EASTER IS A PART
With Easter just a little more than a week away, many students have
voked theh disireement to the fact that they must remain at school foi
the Easter morning services rather than return to their homes. 9f couise,
e^eryone\3 pfefer to be with her family on Easter morning; how
ever^ there are very important reasons behind the_ school s desiring that
Tach Saint Mary’s girl attend both of the Easter services on Easter morning.
Both Christmas and Easter, the two important days on ^
cfllpudar occur during the school year. The school feels that since tne
i'di’s S »e o/.he» hoi, d.™ in .heir h„™e,, ‘W f
the other holy day of Easter in the school together. Also the -lipiscopai
Church obseiwes the various church seasons during
holy day which terminates the forty days of Lent. Saint Maiy s guts liav
speJt the season of Lent together participating in spe«al ^ervices and
prayers. As it is not right to leave a 30b before its ^^bTand Easter
Line principle would hold true concerning the seasons of Lent and Toaster
Fm tile students who have observed Lent together, it would seem only
right that they remain to participate in the Easter morning senices an
to complete the job that they began 111 February.

Do you know what Saint Mary’s
musical taste is like? For instance,
that Ralph Flannagaii is the belles’
favorite dance band ? This was
shown in a recent BELLES poll.
Giving Flannagaii a close run were
Tommy Dorsey and Vaughan Mon
roe. The poll also showed, in spite
of all the Charleston fans, that the
favorite dance music is slow and
sweet. However, the belles were
quick to add that Spike Jones was
their choice of the corn bands of the
land, that Duke Ellington is the
favorite swing band, and that Xavier
Cugat’s orchestra reigns supreme
among the Latin-American types.
They rate the George Shearing (Quin
tet as their choice of the small in
Who is the favorite male vocalist?
You guessed it—Bing Crosby! Rank
ing very near Bing are Perry Como
and Frankie Lane. Doris Day took
the honors as favorite among the
women vocalists. Her rivals are
Jane Powell and Jo Stafford. Ihe
belles almost unanimously selected
Vaughan Monroe as their favorite
band vocalist. The Mills Brothers
won the favorite place among the
small vocal groups.
Everyone seemed to have a differ
ent favorite song the past year.
However, My Foolish Heart, Never
theless, and Be Mine were the ones
most frequently listed at the top. of
the list. A wide range of favorites
appeared in classical music also.
However, Rhapsody in Blue showed
itself to be a general favorite. Oth
ers listed among the favorites were
the Warsaw Concerto, Alalaguena,
Tschaikovsky’s Concerto No. 1 in
B-flat Minor, and the overture to
