At bt. iMary’.s fads are as promi
nent as they are in most schools.
As soon as one new idea shows
it.self, it is not lonj' before many
of the girls liave picked up the
habit. This year one of the most
outstanding fads is that of un-
sual stockings. First there were
white stocking.s, then black stock
ings. Before long there were lace
stockings. Now there are polka
dot, plaid, and striped stockings.
At the beginning of the year
one style that was seen a lot was
short culotte dresses.
Have you noticed the spit curls?
This fad is really growing at St.
.Mary’s. Many girls with long
hair (which is more or less a fad
in itself) have decided to switch
to short curls this year.
As far as expre.ssions go, every
thing that happens now seems to
“gross everybody out!” Also,
many things are .so “jiit” these
( all if a fad oi' just a change
tliis year, hut there is a notice
able tendenc.v toward an interest
in i)olitics now. With polls, speak
ers, and discussions of controver
sial topics, St. .Mary’s girls are
becoming more aware of what
goes on in the political world.
There are some fads that every
one has to trv at least once. For
instance, you just liave to find
out if you can get awa,v with drv-
ing your hair in your room, or
hiding in the closet during a con.
.Vot long ago there was a race
to see who could get the most
A few Aveeks ago, we had a
speaker in assembly who discuss
ed the United Nations. Mr. Rob
erts also spoke to us about our
own government and political
l)roblems. From these two assem
bly programs, we shoidd be Avon-
dering Avhat Ave can do to make
this Avorld a better place.
What is our Avorld like? Only
a little thought convinces us that
it is a Avorld of great beauty, love,
and hapiiiness. In contrast to this
j)icture, Ave have to recognize a
Avorld of some ugline.ss, hate, and
j)roblems. Can Ave be complacent
in our Avorld of carefree happi
ness and ignore the problems of
others? For each of us tomorroAV
can be a A'ision of an unopened
gift. What Avill this gift be? Will
it be a perfect jcAvel of shining
beauty or a cheap imitation made
of paste Avith a shine outside and
The first thought Avhich comes
to eacdi of us is probabl.y the (pies-
spects the rights of others, one
Avho prays daily for Avorld peace,
and one avIio keejis an open mind'
on all issues until the facts are
knoAA'ii. In our school Ave maj* take
part in activities that foster "ood
internal relations, that bring^our
social study class aliA'e bA' extra
assignments, and that teach the
culture of other nations.
We may search diligentlv for
knoAvledge and wisdom which our
teachers have already found and
ire Avilling to share Avith us I
am sure that they have also a.sked
themselves Avhetlier they have a
zeir a good Avorld citi-
tioii, ( an t our government han
dle these problems ? After all, our
jiarents pay taxes to have these
things taken care of.” Who is the
government except you and me»
As we jirogre.ss in our thinkiiiir
our only hope for a better world
is to realize that “a better world
logins with me.” Let us beirin
here at St. .Alary’s. ^
The Avorld citizen is one Avho re-
A very Avi.se man once said. “The
in-oblenis of the Avorld Avill be
solved when a generation of voung
) hers more than seeking the
ble.ssing of the world tlieni.selves
liave the spirit of adventure to set
oil on new ,,aths when the old
paths no longer lead them to the
kind of Avorld they need” The
