The Belles of Saint Mary’s
November 2, 1951 ffovj
BELLES is sponsoring a school song contest. _We urge each class to
submit one or two songs. Final eliminations Avill be November 29 m
assembly. The tunes may be borrowed or original. The words should be
appropriate for permanent use in a school song.
Each class will hold preliminary eliminations some time before the
final judging. The entire class will present its one or two best songs in the
final elimination. Judges will select the winning song on the basis of
originality, rhythm, appropriateness, and presentation. The class that
presents the best song will receive an award.
This contest is an opportunity to try your song-writing abihty and_ to
measure your school spirit. The hall songs presented during Orientation
Week were very good. Now as classes we can have fun writing Saint Mary s
songs. Let’s all show our school spirit and perhaps we can add more songs
to the fine ones Saint Mary’s already has.

YOUR UNITED NATIONS
All week we have been hearing about the United Nations, its organization
and functions. The United Nations has been the subject of assembly pro
grams and library displays. But have you stopped to ask yourself seriously,
“How does the United Nations affect me? Why should I know about its
At a first glance we may decide that the United Nations is an oiganiza-
tioii which is too expansive and too far away to affect us. What would
happen to us and to our world if the United Nations should fail and there
were no world-wide organization working for peace?
Jonathan Daniels told us that, although the failures of the United
Nations are many, the work which it has done is great, and we should not
abandon hope for its success. The settlement of the warfare between the
Jews and Arabs, the armistice between the armies of India and Pakistan,
the independence of Indonesia from Dutch domination, tariff agicements,
the police action to stop aggression in Korea, the achievements _ of the
World Health Organization—all of these advancements are practical re
sults of United Nations’ efforts.
The future success of the United Nations depends on us. Our fathers are
laying the groundwork; we must build on their foundations. The responsi
bility for supporting the work of the United Nations is ours; the benefits
will also be ours. Let us as college students read, study, discuss, and pro
mote the interests of the United Nations in an effort to improve^ and
strengthen it so that it will become an organization capable of maintaining
peace in our world.

Kick The Post, A Letter Will Come,
A Lucky Invitation For A Lucky One
Kicking the “kicking post” so
that you nnll get a special letter is
an old tradition at Saint Mary’s.
Although we laugh and kick it
just for fun, it really works for
Berkeley Bierer has been receiv
ing letters from State College. It
must be nice to get a letter every
day and to be next-door neighbors
too. Betsy W"ebb never has to
woi'ry ‘about an empty mail box.
There is a big, fat letter from
Duke there every morning. She
must have kicked the post much
harder because she was invited to
the Shoe and Slipper dance at
Duke. May Holton’s wish came
true also. She was off to Hamp-
ton-Sidney for a big week end.
Frances Perry, Sally Hackney,
Barbara Seaman, and Lois Perry
have been invited to the “Pall Ger
mans” at Carolina. Many others
have their fingers crossed hoping
for that special letter.
Emilie Adams will vouch for the
post too; that is, if she can stop
talking about VMI for a minute.
Ever since she got that letter you
see her sporting that sweat shirt
and hanging pennants in her room.
Katherine M^hitfield and Mishew
Edgerton are planning a big week
end at Woodbury. Claire Boone
will probably have a hard time de
ciding which invitation to accept,
as she has three interests from
Bluefield, West Virginia.
Many have gotten letters from
their ole home town and are going
home for a big dance or football
There must really be some truth
behind the tradition of the kick
ing post. Why don’t you tr}^ it?

Our peaceful dreams were rude
ly ended Friday night by “Bong,
bong, bong.” I sat straight up in
bed thinking that this was the
shortest eight hours of sleep I had
ever had. Then the meaning reg
1 hit the floor a-flying, taking
bedspread with me (as sarong)
and pillow (as the latest thing in
hats) and charged over to the
light switch, hitting my shin on
the bed and saying a few unprint
Not word one of the fire drill
rules could I read. I vaguely re
membered something about sturdy
towel, put on transom, close shoes.
Don’t know how, but I managed
to reach my place in line. The
command “Count off” was given.
My nnmber? Angle three equals
angle one! Oh, no! 876? Naw!
My wandering mind was jerked
back to reality. . . “Wha’s your
number?” “Three!” “Go.”
We went down 103 steps (yes,
1 counted) and then . .. oh, lovely.
I’m sure it has never been colder
in October! Wrapped in my towel
and warm coat and staggering
about in my sturdy three-inch
heels (I tell you, they were the
only things I co\dd find), I made
it to the music building and stared
in horror at the lovely girls of the
day. These, the same girls? Never!
Just so many clowns. With all
kinds of creams and lotions, and
hair rolled up, they looked like
characters from the moon. The
wind was blowing so hard that
bobbypins, towels, and coats were
whipped from these innocent vic
tims of bong, bong, bong. (You
think I’m exaggerating, don’t
Miss Jones, being sure by this
time that every one was chilled
to the bone, decided to allow us
to return to our now cold beds.
Having withstood the shock of
the ice cold sheets, I wandered oft'
to dreamland while visions
bong, bong, bong danced throUc
