Dean Martha Dabney Jones Speaks To
Saint Mary^s Students In Assembly
Dean Martha Dabney Jones was
the speaker for the January 15 as
sembly. Miss Jones compared the
gaining of knowledge to the proverb,
“You can lead a horse to water, but
you can’t make him drink.” Stu
dents at Saint Mary’s have been led
to the rich waters of knowledge,
but it is up to the individual to
drink of these waters.
From the beatitudes, Miss Jones
quoted, “Blessed are the poor in
spirit, for they shall inherit the
world.” She said, “Humility is at
the bottom of growth.” In order to
gain humility, one must thirst for
things she needs. Character, power,
freedom, and happiness may be
gained only through an unending
Miss Jones pointed out different
types of Saint Mary’s girls who
made life at school both good and
bad. In school there is the know-
it-all type and the don’t-care type.
There is also the girl who is thirsty
for knowledge and who wants to
make classes as helpful to herself
and to others as possible. There
are the girls who make concerts,
chapel, and social life meaningless
to everyone with whom they are
To got the most from life, one
must cultivate a thirst for closer
contact with God, intellectual
growth, social heli)fulnoss, and
higher aesthetic tastes. Students at
Saint Mary’s have been led to the
rich waters of knowledge, but it is
U]) to the individual to drink of
these waters.

Feast of Lights Service was held
in the Chapel January 6. This serv
ice illustrates-in symbols the send
ing forth of the light of Christ into
the world. Starting from the one
light on the altar, representing
Christ, the light goes from person to
jierson, just as Jesus told His fol
lowers that they were to he the
“Light of the World,” to bear His
truths and way of life to other
Epiphany means “light upon.”
The Wise Men were outside of the
Jewish fold; so the light of Christ
was not to be kept within the Jewish
peoi)le, but it must go into all the
world. Therefore it is in the season
of Epiphany that the Church pays
special emphasis to a missionary
