By 10:30 at night girls at Saint
Mary’s begin to take on strange and
sometimes frightful appearances.
Perhaps those blessed creatures with
naturally curly hair should be de
clared as exceptions. Nevertheless,
they still have ways and means to
make themselves unlovely in the
obliging darkness of night in order
to bring out their lovelier selves in
the revealing light of day.
Not even the gals with the per
manently curly tresses can escape
the perplexities resulting from hav
ing a skin. Some have dry skins.
Some have oily skins. But heaven
help the poor souls and their onlook
ers at nightfall who have blemishes.
The latter variety delight in splotch
ing themselves with a thick white
substance that lends a ghostly ap
pearance. Innocent bystanders have
to be told that their knees needn’t
quake. After all, it’s really only
that nice, gentle Sue who is so
attractive during the daylight
hours. She’s merely trying to im
prove her attractive self by appear
ing atrocious at night.
Of course, the dry and oily va
rieties have their own peculiar
characteristics come nightfall, alsO'
The oily type will smell (no proxiffl
ity necessary, either) as though thef
have just come out of the operating
room. The inquisitive one is S-S'
sured that the very sanitary odo'
comes only from a drying lotiom
With an interest in seeing human
efforts put to the best use, the
quisitive one advises the
rier to try a towel sometimes. I

girls at Saint Mary’s. Equally s

FROM THE BELLES
Tomorrow being May Day reminds the BELLES of the practice, common
in many girls’ schools, of having a full week end of May Day festivities.
There might be an athletic event Friday afternopn, a picnic supper after
the May Day program Saturday, and an off-campus dance for the entire
school Saturday night. The week end could end with a picnic dinner
If these activities are added, the whole school, not merely the juniors and
seniors, could enjoy a dance; girls would have more entertainment for their
dates and parents; and May Day would become the big week end of the year.
The BELLES suggests that the administration and the Student Govern-
ment Association consider these further additions to our already enjoyable
program of May Day activities.

But Our Tan Is As Fine As It Can
SUN PORCH RULES
The opening of the sun porch was an important event to those Saint
Mary’s girls who consider suntans a necessary part of summer dress. Hall
Council has warned that the sun porch will be quickly closed if students
continue to disobey the rules.
Saint Mary’s girls know the rules:
Sign up on the chart in the covered way.
Do not stay more than an hour.
No cokes, food, radios, or smoking.
Bring down all articles taken up.
Do not break “Do Not Disturb” signs to go onto the porch.
Do not disturb anything in the rooms passed through.
Only thirty girls in the porch at one time.
It is unfair for the carelessness of a few girls to keep all from using
the sun porch.
The Letter Club is sponsoring a volleyball tournament between the halls.
Thus far it has been unsuccessful simply because girls will not play. Hall
captains have been unable to get enough players for a team. According to
the Letter Club, girls are uncooperative, spiritless. Also there is negligence
on the part of students to participate in other extracurricular activffies.
The Circle, the Letter Club, the faculty, and the cheerleaders have done
their part to boost school spirit. It remains for the student body to react to
their efforts and to put spirit into school activities.
Taking part in an activity that contributes to the school offers satisfac
tion and honor. Students love things they work hard to obtain and to keep.
If students take a more active part in activities they will automatically
develop an unfailing school spirit. r
The soft white sand sifts dreamily
over the beach, while the never-end
ing lap, lap of the cool, calm ocean
soothes the jangled nerves of Miss
Agnes Allburnt. Agnes slowly turns
over to toast on her other side, and
doing so she receives a healthy blow
on her back. “Oh, Janie, you woke
me up. I was sleeping and dreaming
so peacefully. Golly! It sho’ is hot
up here today.”
Yes, friends, these are the maniacs
that gleefully race up four flights of
stairs to scramble for a place in the
sun. Once there, one sees the most
beautiful array of modern beach
wear imaginable. Let us take a peek
at these beauties.
Today, Miss Allburnt is sporting
a beautiful two-piece bathing suit.
The pants are fashioned after the
bloomer style, and they are blue in
color. She also is wearing a very
becoming white bra-style top.
Here now is the most fabulous
beauty. Miss Scorchy Torchy. Miss
Torchy has a beautiful reddish tan
which is attractive with her white
toweled swim suit. This particular
suit was first originated by the Ha-
waiians, and Miss Torchy is perfect
ly groomed down to the last detail
of a fourteen-carat gold-studded
clasp. This clasp is very cleverly
designed into the shape of a glamor
ous safety pin.
You say that you wonder what is
the mellow aroma that wafts through
your nostrils as you step out on the
roof garden. Miss Allburnt has a
fragrance all her own; it is essence
of vinegar. Not only does it refresh
and beautify the body, but it also
can be chilled and served as a soft
hears the natives softly singing
back is killing me! Does any
have any Noxzema?”
It’s all right to hold a converse'
tion, but you should let go of B ®
and then.—Richard Armour.
As the moon sinks low in the west,
the boat sails away from the dreamy
shores of Santa Maria, and Janie
