The Belles of Saint Mary’s
September 28, 19®^
DEAR NEW GIRLS
It is indeed a pleasure to welcome you to Saint Mary’s. But you have
been here for almost two weeks and already feel at .home. You are on the
road to being a Saint Mary’s girl. This means that you have a name which
will be an asset to you throughout your life. But it is up to you to gain at
Saint Mary’s the things that you want to remember in future years.
Through extracurricular activities you gain not only new friends but new
interests. Outside activities supplement your classroom learning. You
will find that by particpating in a few extracurricular activities your life
here will be interesting instead of a day-to-day existence.
One naturally expects the Church organizations to be active on Saint
Mary’s campus. The Altar Guild, the YWCA, and the Canterbury Club
are anxious for you to join. These organizations provide channels for
service work. -u •
If you are interested in singing, try out for the Glee Club or choir._ i)o
not say that you don’t have a good voice; do not be timid about trying;
just go out. _ _ ... -dt7tT-C'C!
Or perhaps you like publications. The three publications, the BBmib,
the Stage Coach, and the Bulletin, work together so _ you can give your
talent to all three. In each you may voice your opinion and use your
writing ability. The publication staffs need every one of you. We imagine
you are saying you cannot write. You must realize that you have potential
abilities and that there are always circulation and routine jobs which are
fun and necessary. For example, you can write up the birthdays or the
theater calendar. That thrill of seeing something you wrote in print is
worth every effort you put into the task.
All students should enter into some phase of athletics. Soon you will
join the Sigma or Mu athletic society, and you will want to support your so
ciety. Go out for every sport you can, and if you are not playing, go out
and cheer your team on to victory.
Or take dramatics. Besides the acting side of the dramatic club, there
are various committees which need your help greatly. Props, staging,
and make-up are really fun.
Read through your handbook and decide what organizations you would
like to join, and join them. But above all, do not belong to any organzation
half-heartedly. Put everything you have into the ones of your choice, and
we guarantee that you will more than reap benefit and enjoyment from
Success to you.
Education, in its broadest sense, is life. It is the never-ending process
of the development of body, mind, and soul, continuing throughout life and
resulting in the production of a desirable or an undesirable individual.
Education is more than years of formal schooling. Education is life—at
home or at school—working conscientiously or otherwise. It is life made
richer by our selection of friends, studies, athletics, amusements, and other

activities. Education is growth—in the right direction, we hope. It is
the development of one’s virtues, qualities, and abilities.
You have selected Saint Mary’s as the institution in which you will con
tinue your education. You are to be congratulated upon your choice. Saint
klary’s will do her part, but you must do yours as well. Here, as well as
training for your future life, you will receive actual experience in successful
and enjoyable living. Life at Saint Mary’s can increase your abilities to
live well, to get more out of life, and to develop finer sensibilities. Some
girls fail to realize these benefits because they close their minds, but _we
know you will be different. You will take advantage of all that Saint
Mary’s offers, and you will become a finer person because of it.
This year has much in store for you. The chapel services, assembly pro
grams, classroom lessons, athletic contests, hall meetings, conferences with
faculty members, concerts, extracurricular activities, good times at the hut,
and dorm- “bull sessions” have contributions to make toward your educa
tional development. If you begin now in all these fields, this year will be a
year of great progress toward your goal—a well-rounded education.
The influence of Saint Mary’s cannot be completely described. Student
government, years of tradition, the stately surroundings, the high purposes
of the school, its scholastic standing—all these leave their indelible marks
on every Saint Mary’s girl. Will you take advantage of these opportunities?

Knit suits are the thing this year
and here are some of the lucky girls
who have them; Lucy Heilig has a
bright orange one. Nell Eley has
a deep rose one, and Sue Trant has
an aqua one. Myra Thayer has a
forest green, and Alice Bost has a
navy one. Knit suits come with
various length sleeves and with or
without collars. Most of them have
a design on the top such as a jeweled
collar or two scotty dogs. One suit
has a huge gold medallion on it.
Purple is going to be one of the
most talked about colors this year.
It is one of those colors that looks
good on almost everyone, regardless
of the color of hair or complexion.
Nancy Boston has a pale lavender
sweater and a deep purple skirt that
complement each other to no end.
Pat Boesser has a light purple
sweater. Frances Atkins has a very
pale purple sweater, and Libby Cart
has some lovely purple shoes. Pearl
Smith has a darling purple velvet
hat. Enough said for the merits of
purple, it can speak for itself.
Barbara Carter wears a very
pretty red wool dress with a black
velvet belt. Shirley Epting has a
red tweed dress with red trimming.
Shepard Rustin sported a very good
looking outfit to church Sunday.
She had on a black jersey blouse
and a red skirt with a red comber-
band. Very striking! Carolyn Lan-
'dis was walking around the campus
in a cute bright green suit with a
full jacket and a pencil straight
ballerina with shoes to maten, ‘
Frances Perry in a fuchsia
with elbow gloves to match.
