Honor Week Recognized
At St, Mary^s
This week, November Twenty-
eighth through December Fourth,
is Honor Week at St. Mary’s.
Blotters with the Honor Code
printed on them were given to all
students after Chapel on Wednes
day. Thursday morning the as
sembly jirogram was devoted to
several short speeches from the
Honor Council members of each
class. Since this code plays such
an imjiortant part in our life at
St. Maiy’s, it is only right that
wo take this opportunity to em
phasize the fact to St. Maiy’s stu
The handbook states: “The Stu
dent Covernment Association at
St. Mary’s is based on the honor
code. The stress on lionesty is vital
to the functioning of our self-
governed college. . .” The honor
system as a form of self-govern
ment is an important sign of our
democracy. The student body vot
ed ui)on this system and has stood
by it over the years. The honor
system develops not only the in
tegrity of the school as a whole but
also the jiersonal integrity of each
member of that school by instilling
in all students the never-changing
ideals of honesty and tmthfulness
and providing a code of conduct
that will apply throughout life.
The honor code taken by each
.student upon entering St. Alary’s
is as follows: “With a clear under
standing of all that the Honor
Code implies, I pledge that I will
uphold the highest standard of
personal integrity in every phase
of life at St. Mary’s, and I recog
nize 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 gov
ernment at St. Mary’s”.
Slump Queens: llobiii Pleasants, IJetsy Holland, Vleki Coxe.
