THE HONOR CODE
With a clear understanding of all that the Honor Grade implies, I pledge
that I will uphold the highest standard of personal integrity in every phase
of life at Saint Mary’s, and I recognize and accept my responsibility for
helping others to live up to that standard.
As a member of the Student Government Association, I pledge my loyal
co-operation in fulfilling the responsibilities of student government at
Saint Mary’s. . •
What does this pledge mean to you ? Is it just something else that should
be memorized—something you should know so that you can repeat it with
others? If it conveys this meaning to you—stop for awhile and think
seriously about the true meaning of the pledge.
When a girl says that she will uphold the highest standards of personal
integrity in every phase of life at Saint Mary s and that she recognizes and
accepts the responsibility of helping others to live up to that standard, she
means that all her actions at all times will be honest, upright, and sound in
moral principle and that she will do her best to help others act accordingly.
If all girls—both old and new—will co-operate and really try to fulfill
their pledge to the fullest extent. Saint Mary’s will have a fine, upstanding
Student Government Association.

Are you one of the students who cause disturbance in Friday night school
choir practices? Such conduct is cheating yourself and harming others.
When you talk and laugh, you miss Mr. Broughton’s instruction. The
instructions, concerned with Episcopal liturgy, church history, churchly be
havior, and church music are valuable. Every churchman should have this
instruction. Episcopalians can learn more about their church from this
teaching; non-Episcopalians can broaden their knowledge of the church
they attend at Saint Mary’s.
School choir practice, a tradition at Saint Mary’s, has been valuable to
other students and can be to us also. It trains us in taking our parts in the
service, in singing hymns and chants, and thus makes the service go more
smoothly. Forty-five minutes a week is very little for such training. Choir
practice is one of the many extras which Saint Mary’s offers us. Last
Friday night the conduct and attention were much better than before.
There is, however, still room for improvement.
Tonight let us all remember to listen attentively and sing well. Those
who have been disrespectful probably just did not think. M^hen reminded,
those students certainly will do better. Good conduct in the Chapel will
be beneficial to us and thoughtful of others. Let us remember to be respect
ful to Mr. Broughton and, most of all, reverent to God.
Most students do not fully realize the seriousness of the Raleigh water
shortage. Girls do not realize the inconvenience of being without water.
Students must conserve both water and electric power. Careless use is
waste; careful use is conservation.
Only with everyone’s co-operation will the water supply last. If citizens
use water sparingly, authorities say there will be enough to last twenty
days. If careless use continues, our laundry service will be stopped and our
drinking and bathing supplies will be diminished considerably or cut off.
In accordance with the Raleigh City Council’s requests and Dr. Stone’s
plea, the BELLES urges every student to co-operate to the fullest extent in
saving water and electricity.
It was the week before book re
ports, and all through the school
confusion was raging for every sin
gle girl. Yes, you guessed it! No
one knew just what she could read.
Well, that’s not such a problem if
you know where to look. On the
library bulletin board in the covered
way a caption will catch your eye:
“Acceptable (If You Know What
We Mean) Fictions.” Yes, we do
know what you mean, and so we read
the book jackets containing the
names of the books, the authors, and
something about the story. Perhaps
Les Miserahles by Victor Hugo will
catch your eye. Then again Rudyard
Kipling’s The Light That Failed or
Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure
will appeal to you. Whatever your
choice may be, you are off to the
library to start the interesting, but
Now, if you are an American his
tory student, you’re probably say
ing, “What good does that do me ?”
Don’t give up so soon, because here
are a few suggestions for you. The
bulletin board in the library refer
ence room contains a number of
good suggestions. There also you
will find the names of the books, the
authors, and something about the
novel. You’ll be glad to know that
the period of time which the book
covers will be underlined. Wait!
That’s not all. On the glass coveic
table you will find still other go°
novels. The Tree of Liberty ^
Elizabeth Page, Three Harbours 1
F. van Wyck Masons, and One ®
