Seniors Honor Juniors With Annual Halloween
After the annual Halloween
Party held Tuesday, October 31,
it is' easily understood why the
Juniors have been somewhat skep
tical this past week. Maybe a few
are still frightened by the thought
of that Freak House. But Juniors,
do not be dismayed; the eyeballs
were reallv only grapes!
All phases of the party were a
complete success and did achieve
the purpose of helping the Juniors
become acquainted with the Sen
iors Bobbing for apples, sticking
noses in flour looking for money,
and throwing sponges at the stu
dent Government Officers were
just a few of the side attractions.
After exhausting the booths, ev
eryone finally settled down to en
joy Mr. Bell’s refreshments and
the two skits.
The hillbilly skit and the ghost
story kept everyone in laughter
and suspense. Featured in the hill
billy skit were Je.ssica Gillespie,
Babs Blue, Jan Leonard, Naiicj-
Cole, Barbara May, and Mimi
Debra Grove was the narrator
for the ghost story.
Mu Cheerleaders Chosen
The athletic field of St. Mary’s
was alive on Wednesday after
noon with the spirited voices of
eleven young ladies cheering their
team on to victory.

son Lillian Janies, Linda Spam,

St. Mary’s In Process Of
St. Mary’s Junior College is now
in the process of a self stiid.y pro

consist of one long report sub
mitted in writing to the Associa

eight other committees covering
every aspect of St. Mary’s.

ebairman of the Steering Commit
tee. Other members of the com
mittee are Mr. Baird, Miss Rich

sociation b.v February 15, 1969
and a month later a visiting com
mittee will come to St. Mary’s for
from 3 to 6 days and determine
tlie validity of committee reports.
If the visiting committee ac-
cejits the reports, the school will
receive conformation of accredita
tion. But if the visitors do not find
that their observations and the re
ports concurrent, the accredita
tion will be withheld until such
measures as the Association deems
necessary are taken b.v the school.
The study is, according to the
Associatioiq “to be comprehensive
and institution-wide in character.
