A topic of world interest, "The* 

U.N.O. versus World Government," I j-j _, . 

was discussed by a student-faculty XlOlTie riCOHOItllCS 
panel in Monroe auditorium on the ^ . / - K1 

evening of March 26. Day 10 DC Observed 

Dr. Herman Reichenbach of the 
Music Department and Miss Bar- 
bara Watson spoke in favor of the 
U.N.C. World government was 
supported by Dr. Elizabeth W. 
Baker, professor of English, and 
Miss Jean Clarke. 

Dr. Reichenbach, speaking first, 
seemed to feel that the present 
critical attitude toward the U.N.O. 
would make that organization into 
a more practical unit. He com- 
pared the U.N.O. to the League 
of Nations, saying that the weak- 
ness of the latter had been caused 
to a great extent by lack of mili- 
tary enforcement. Dr. Reichen- 
bach further mentioned the lack 
of an atomic commission in the 
U.N.O. but stated that one would 
soon be forthcoming. 

"The difference between a lea- 
gue of nations and world govern- 
ment is the difference between a 
treaty and a law," said Dr. Baker 
in her opening speech. She stressed 
the more democratic nature of a 
world government, adding that all 
peoples would combine to make 
world law and would enforce them 
by international policing. The use 
of international law to prosecute 
Individuals at the Nuremburg 
trials was given an example of 
what can be done. Need for a 
general Bill of Rights was men- 
tioned by Dr. Baker. She called 
national sovereignty "merely a 
catchword" and said it stands in 
the way of a workable world 
government, She emphasized the 
need for a swift reconversion to 
world government, a need made 
pressing by the atomic bomb. 

Harking back to the League of 
Nations, Miss Watson said the 
U.N.O. is better because it con- 
tains a definite statement con- 
cerning the use of force. Diploma- 
tic pressure and economic sanc- 
tions are to be used first, however. 
"The one big weakness of the 
UJN.O. is the veto power of the 
Big five," Miss Watson pointed 
out. She concluded that suspicions 
and fears between nations are too 
prevalent for world government 
to be practical now. 

"If world government is not in- 
stituted there may be more wars — 
or one more war," stated Miss 
Clarke. She advocated working 
together internationally as the 
first means toward economic pro- 
gress for all nations. She said that 
a world government would have 
stopped the Germans and the Ja- 
panese before Pearl Harbor. 

In the cross-questioning, Miss 
Clarke asked Dr. Baker: "How 
can people be induced to give up 
national sovereignty?" Dr. Baker 
replied that a new catch-word 
would have to be found. Several 
objections to a world government 
were stated by Dr. Reichenbach. 
He said there are still too many 
conflicts between socialism and 
capitalism, between Western and 
Oriental civilizations, between 
races, between men and machinery. 
To a question from the audience: 
"How can we expect to make a 
Bill of Rights work internationally 
if we can't even make it work in 
our own country?" Dr. Baker's 
answer was: "I never saw a per- 
fect government yet but I'm not

Home Life Depicted 
In "Little Women" 
To Be Given Soon 

The campus community will 
have the privilege of seeing "Little 
Women" on Friday evening, May 
17, when the college acting class, 
incooperation with the Mary 
Washington Players, will present 
the famous old play in the audi- 
torium of George Washinugton 

This beloved story, written by 
Louisa May Alcott, has been en- 
joyed by old and young for years. 
Marian de Forest wrote the adap- 
tation which our play group will 

Most of the scenes take place 
in the sitting room of the March 
home, where live womanly "Meg," 
boyish "Jo," tranquil "Beth," and 
vain "Amy." The room was "a 
comfortable old place, though the 
carpet was faded and the furniture 
very plain. A pleasant atmosphere 
of home peace pevaded it." 

The original cast, as presented 
in New York City at The Play- 
house, October, 1912, by William 
A. Brady, included Marie Pavey 
as "Jo," Alice Brady as "Meg," 
and Carson Davenport as "Laurie." 
The play was staged in New York 
by Jessie Bonstelle and Bertram 

In England on November 10, 
1919, "Little Women" was staged 
by Jessie Bonstelle. For the Lon- 
don audience the character of Pro- 
fessor Bhaer, which is German, 
was changed to that of Professor 
Antoine Baret, and the speeches 
were rewritten into French. This 
was just after World War I. Ka- 
tharine Cornell was "Jo" in the 
English presentation, and Antony 
Holies was "Laurie."

Goats In Annual 
Clash April 2 

By Joan Goode 

Devil-Goat season reaches a 
colorful climax on April 2, when 
Devil-Goat Day is celebrated by 
wearers of the green-and-yellow 
and by flaunters of the red-and- 

Whistles will blow at 6:00 A. M., 
Signalling the first rush to tape 
flags over campus doors. No Devil 
may enter a door surmounted by a 
Goat flag, and no Goat may walk 
over a Devil-held threshold. Eager 
flag-rp.isers must stay behind 
closed doors until the 6 o'clock 
signal. Anyone going out ahead 
of time will forfeit that dorm's 

Penalties for non-wearing of 
appropriate colors will be meted 
out by competing team members. 
Seniors and sophomores are Goats 
this year unless they entered Mary 
Washington in an odd-numbered 
year. Students enrolling in an 
odd-numbered year will wear the 
traditional red-and-white. 

Devil-Goat competition was in- 
stituted at Mary Washington to 
give the thrill of teamwork and to 
increase that indefinable element 
so essential to student morale — 
"school spirit." Toni Campbell, 
Athletic Association president, 
stressed the need for all-out par- 
ticipation if Devil-Goat Day is to 
be a success. 

Scoring of teams began last fall 
with hockey which gave the win- 
ning Goats one point. Volley-ball 
was also won by the Goats, but 
the Devils have won in basketball 
and riding. The swimming meet 
served to break the tie, but the 
deciding points will be awarded 
on Devil-Goat Day. One point is 
to be given for winners of the flag- 
raising and three points go to the 
victors of Tuesday night's rally. 

Competitive games, conducted 
by Mrs. C. L. Bushnell, begin in 
the Big Gym at 7:30 P. M. The 
team with the most people, best 
cheering, and greatest show of 
spirit will undoubtedly have a de- 
cided advantage in the final tally. 
Mr. William L. McDermott, Mr. 
Levin Houston III, and Mr. Rus- 
sell Walther are judging in the 
evening contests and will award 
the final three points.

Virginia Pinchbeck is the new 
Editor-in-Chief of the Bullet for 
1946-47, with her new job begin- 
ning the spring quarter. She was 
selected for the position at the 
recent staff elections. 

Ginny, who comes from Rich- 
mond, began her Bullet experience 
during her freshman year by work- 
on the news staff and in the 
circulation department. Her first 
assignment, by the way, was to 
interview Dr. Griffith, who is fa- 
culty adviser for the Bullet. She 
was feature editor last spring and 
news editor during the past fall 
and winter quarters. In high 
school, Thomas Jefferson, Rich- 
mond, she was on the annual busi- 
ness staff and on the magazine 
literary staff. 

Her campus activities also in- 
clude jobs as commercial editor 
on the Battlefield and publicity 
manager of WMWC. She is a mem- 
ber of Alpha Psi Omega, Alpha 
Phi Sigma, I. R. C, B. S. U., Sigma 
Tau Chi, M. W. Players and Mo- 
dern Portias. In the way of hob- 
bies, she likes knitting and writ- 
ing letters. She wants to go into 
vocational guidance work after 

Other positions on the Bullet 
staff beginning this quarter are as 
follows: Joan Goode, news editor; 
Jean Knott, business manager; 
Barbara Thomas, feature editor; 
Catherine Fastabend and Barbara 
Keller, advertising managers; 
Dorothy Adams, circulation man- 
ager; Frances Horn, assistant cir- 
culation manager; Louise Brocken- 
brough, typist; Charlotte Baylis, 
exchange editor; and Jane Yeat- 
man, proof editor. 


The new officers of the Epaulet 
Staff for the year 1946-47 are as 
follows: Editor-in-chief, Prudence 
Burchard; Assistant Editor, Rosa- 
lind Marshall; Literary Editor, 
Barbara Thomas and Emiley 
Lynch; Exchange Editor, Nancy 
Powers; Publicity Manager, Con- 
chita de Medio; Business Man- 
ager, Joan Timberlake. 

Prudence Burchard, an English 
and psychology major, is a junior 
and was formerly literary editor 
of the Epaulet. She was also 
treasurer of the Red Cross, mem- 
ber of the Canterbury Club, Alpha 
Phi Sigma, Sigma Tau Delta, 
Modern Portias and the Athenian 
Club. At present she can't think 
of anything she'd rather do than 
write and that is a very worthy 
hobby for the editor of a maga- 

Rosalind Marshall, from Hamp- 
ton, Virginia, is a sophomore so- 
cial science major. She loves to 
write so it is only natural that 
she belongs to the Creative Writ- 
ing Club, and the Modern Litera- 
ture Club. She is, also, secretary 
of the Canterbury Club, and a 
member of Y. W. C. A. 

Barbara Thomas, a sophomore 
from Cape Charles, Virginia, and 
an English major, besides being 
co-literary editor of the Epaulet, 
is Feature Editor of the Bullet for, 
1946-47. She is a member of the 
"Y" Choir, Alpha Sigma, and the 
French Club. Her chief interest 
is journalism but she loves to read, 
swim, and write. 

Emily Lynch, also co-literary 
editor for next year, is an English 
major and an officer of the Can- 
terbury Club, a member of Modern 
Literature Club, the Creative Writ- 
ing Club, and is a violinist in the 
orchestra. Before becoming co«

We've been waiting all this year 

And now at last the clay's drawn near; 

Somebody said it couldn't be done 

And now someone's did it and oh, what fun! 

The editor decided to break a rule 

To bring to you an APRIL FOOL. 

This is the reason for the empty space, 

So knock that shock from off your face! 


We, the staff of the BULLET, have felt the need of a Letter 
to the Editor column, which we shall choose to call "The Stu- 
dents Speak." 

Such a column will begin in the next issue of the BULLET. 
This regular feature of the newspaper can only succeed if you, 
the students, send in your letters and ideas. 

Each week a topic will be suggested on which you may write. 
But, if you want to write in on another subject, go right aheact. 
All letters can be left in Ball 218, or mailed to The Bullet, Box 
1187, College Station, City. These letters should be in not later 
than Thursday of the week preceding the BULLET date. 

A suggestion topic for the issue of April 8 is "What I think 
of the BULLET." Give your likes and dislikes, what you think 
it lacks, etc. — Editor.

Celebrates Home- 
coming Week-End 

Mary Washington College alum- 
nae, for the first time in several 
years, will return to the college 
to celebrate their Homecoming 
weekend on April 6 and 7. Travel

pus, the Board of Directors of the 
National Mary Washington Col- 
lege Alumnae Association will hold 
a meeting in the Student Activities 
Room in Virginia Hall. 

Saturday morning will be de- 
voted to registration, committee 
meetings, and a board meeting. 
Luncii is to be served in the col- 
lege dining hall, following which 
a general meeting will be held in 
Monroe auditorium. Dr. Combs 
will be the speaker at dinner, for 
which arrangements are at present 
being made. In the evening there 
will be informal dancing in Monroe 
gym when students, alumnae, and 
guests will have an opportunity to 
become better acquainted. 

The college orchestra and band, 
under the direction of Mr. Faulk- 
ner, will give a concert in George 
Washington auditorium on Sunday 
afternoon, after which members 
of the senior class will be the 
guests of the Alumnae Association 
at a tea in the Dome Room of 
Seacobeck Hall.

Who loves a garden 
Finds within his soul 
Life's whole; 

He hears the anthem of the soil 
While ingrates toil; 
And sees beyond his little sphere 
The waving fronds of heaven, clear.

Lois Ann Todd, will you tell us 
something about the conference 
which you attended in Richmond? 
This question was asked of Lois 
Ann at the last cabinet meeting, 
and she was quick to reply, "Here 
are some things we hear which 
started us thinking. We pass them 
on for what they are worth to 
each of you." 

Everyone now wants to do some- 
thing toward bringing peace to the 
world. The United States and 
Russia are the two greatest pow- 
ers in the world today. The U. S. 
advocates democracy. Russia ad- 
vocates communism. The U. S. 
uses democracy— for certain peo- 
ple. Russia uses communism— for 
everyone. The masses of the peo- 
ple in the world who are now 
"without a government" are what 
we call the common people. As 
democracy is practiced in the U. 
IS., it benefits the so-called upper 
classes. As communism is prac- 
ticed in Russia, it benefits the 
common people. What do you 
think the masses in Europe will 
choose ? 

The North Carolina Student 
Legislature, about which Douglas 
Hunt spoke, voted to invite Negro 
delegates to its meeting next year. 
It also voted to admit Negroes to 
the colleges on an equal basis with 
white students. The editor of one 
of the prominent N. C. news- 
papers wrote an editorial soothing 
older people. He said that the stu- 
dents were just children, and 
would soon grow up and lose their 
foolish ideas. Charles Jones, from 
Chapel Hill, said that he has more 
faith in the moral enthusiasm, the 
courage, and the ethical standards 
of students than in any other 
group in the world. 

In a discussion by Big-Three 
representatives, Secretary Byrnes 
tried to persuade Molotov to use 
democracy in Bulgaria. Molotov 
said, "How interesting that you 
should urge us to try democracy 
in Bulgaria. Perhaps if we suc- 
ceed in Bulgaria, Mr. Byrnes will 
be encouraged to try it in South

Radio Waves 

Announcers are being featured 
over WMWC. These announcers 
faithfully bring you news at 3:45 
P. M., and take part in the two 
o'clock, three- thirty, and three- 
fifty programs. 

Nelle ©awes, chief announcef, 
pointed out the most important 
requirements for a good announcer 
by saying, "A person must have a 
good radio voice— by that I mean 
one that is pleasing to the ear. 
Usually an announcer has a low 
voice, but this is not absolutely 
necessary since other types of 
voices may sound well through a 
mike. In addition, dependability 
is one of the most important re- 
quirements, in radio as in other 
fields of work." 

* * * 

Nelle stressed the fact that dif- 
ferent voices are suited to dif- 
ferent programs. For instance, 
our "We the Peep Hole" newscast 
requires a person with a gossipy 
sort of voice, whereas a dramatic 
15-minute broadcast would require 
someone much more serious and 
emotional. An announcer must put 
expression into her voice and avoid 
that "ready" quality that comes 
from just repeating the lines from 
the page. 

* * * 

A person may not have a plea- 
sant speaking voice in everyday 
conversation, yet that very person 
may make a most successful an- 
nouncer — a mike brings out new 
qualities in one's voice. Conversely, 
one who may "win a blue ribbon" 
for speaking normally may fail 
miserably "over the air.'' 

* * * 

How does one get to be an an- 
nouncer over WMWC? Nelle ex- 
plained the procedure in this fa- 
shion: First ah announcer is chosen 
fdr her voice and ability. Then she 
is trained in the use of the mike, 
proper distance, volume, etc. Mike 
fright is normal and healthy. A 
person gradually overcomes this 
feeling as she learns her way 
around the studio and control 
room. The chief announcer also 
explains program procedure and 
the keeping of the radio log. The 
final step is the actual announcing 
over the radio. 

* * * 

Some of the students who belong 
to the voices you have heard so 
often on WMWC are: Rose Cas- 
tiglia, Marilee Hicks, Edwina 
Tyler, Nancy Lipscomb, Dorothy 
Quinn, Betty Caum, Ellen Whit- 
more, Ruby York, Harriet Fletch- 
er, Doris Leopold, Pat Nussy, Joan 
Timberlake, Viola Wells, Ruth* 
Myer, Peggy Elliott, Becky Grigg, 
Norma Denecke, Posey Brooks, 
Mary Elizabeth Mould, Marguerite 
Cumming, and Louise Hair. 

* * * 

Active members of staff WMWC 
will soon have pins to show their 
status. There is to be a system 
whereby a staff member buys her 
pin, but doesn't get to keep it for- 
ever until she graduates. Other- 
wise, she keeps the pin as long 
as she is an active participate in 
WMWC. As soon as her activities 
cease on the station, her pin will 
be taken away, and ner money 
given back. This will keep WMWC 
pin standing for active member- 
ship in an active station. 

* * * 

Notice! There will be a meeting 
of the entire WMWC staff Thurs- 
day, April 4, at 4:45 P. M. in Mon- 
roe Radio Studio. At that time the 
slate of officers for coming year 
Will be presented, and a station 
manager and board of directors 
will be elected.

□ I am in favor of world gov- 


□ I am opposed to world gov- 


□ I am undecided on world 


This ballot is your chance to 
show the world that girls do think 
and do have opinions concerning 
world affairs. t)o your part and 
use this ballot Wednesday, April 
3, in front of the "C" Shoppe. 

The problems that are facing 
you concerning your decision on 
world government are great ones. 
But if you remember your Ameri- 
can history, they are very simi- 
lar to those that faced the thir- 
teen colonies in the period before 
the Constitutional Convention of 
1787. The states did not want to 
give up to a strong central gov- 
ernment the right to make laws — 
the right to govern them in things 
that concerned all the states. They 
were firm believers in state sov- 
ereignty. Compare ttys with the 
way we feel today. We believe 
that our United States should be 
entirely sovereign — that there 
should be no higher law about us. 
We want the right to decide for 
ourselves what policies we are go- 
ing to follow in our domestic and 
foreign affairs without outside in- 
terference. Yet this idea of na- 
tional sovereignty has been in ex- 
istance for around four thousand 
years, and it has not found a way' 
to peace and security, although 
people wanted peace and attempt- 
ed to build Leagues to maintain 
it. Such a one was the League 
of Nations in 1918, but it didn't 
work. The reason, perhaps, be- 
cause the United States, through 
party quarrels and politics, did 
not follow our president, Wood- 
row Wilson, into the League. We, 
in short, refused to join, and the 
result— 1939, the beginning of the 
second World War. Maybe some 
of you will say that the fact we 
did not join had nothing to do with 
it, but it cannot be denied that if 
the United States, as one of the 
major powers, had put her influ- 
ence and strength behind it and 
worked for a stronger League and 
a better world, who knows what 
the result might have been? Let 
us try again, and this time you, 
as citizens of tomorrow and prob-

Members of the Oak Hill Hount 
Club sponsored a Point To Point 
race this past Saturday and invited 
five Mary Washington jocks to 
compete. Those five hard riding 
jocks applied every thing they 
knew about riding and took the 
first five places. Funny Newbill 
finished first with a professional 
timing. The course was really 
rugged and the rain and slush 
made it more so. Miss Newbill 
riding the good horse Onlook rode 
that five mile course over hill, 
through dell, woods, and mud in 
ten minutes. Congratulations 
Funny! That was an excellent job 
of riding and to ride a route like 
that in professional time is quite 
an achievement. 

The other MWC jocks were right 
on her tail however, and the other 
places went to the following girls 
and Hunt Club members respec- 
tive of the order in which they 
crossed the finishing line: Anne 
Everett on Gazelle, Susu Hoggard 
on The Wren, Toni Campbell on 
Misfortune, Alison Bowen on 
Little Zero, Mrs. Dudley on Secret 
Son, Dr. Milne on Gladsom, Mr. 
Lindstrom on Dynamite, Mr. Be- 
noit on Master April, and Mr. Mit- 
chell on Zero Hour. 

The race started on the south 
side of Plank road when Mr. 
George Alles dropped the starting 
flag. There was no designated 
route through the Altoona woods 
for the riders to follow (in other 
words, it was a free for all). When 
they reached Harrison Rd. they 
entered a group of fields in which 
a definite course had been flagged. 
Unless they followed the course 
they were disqualified. Two Mary 
Washington girls patrolled the 
fields to see that they kept within 
the limits, they were: field judges 
Ginny Schier on Cricket, and 
Shirley Cohn on Sunny Shores. 

Spectators were scattered on 
various knolls about the Dudley's 
estate so that they could see the 
riders in the last stretch of the 
race. Excitement grew as the 
minutes passed; they knew ap- 
proximately when the riders were 
due to appear since a previous 
timing of 13 minutes had already 
been set. Wild shouts rang through 
the misty air when the field judges 
waved that the first rider was ap- 
proaching. There was a very tense 
moment of waiting to see who was 
in the lead when Funny was dis- 
cerned taking the first brush jump 
in the distant field. The other girls 
were about ten lengths behind and 
when they had taken the first 
brush jump they opened up with a 
last spurt of speed which sent 
them thundering toward the last 
brush jump which was a whopper. 
Susu surprised the onlookers when 
The Wren shifted into second gear 
and practically flew for that last 

After all of the riders had re- 
gained their breath, Mr. Dudley 
awarded the prizes. Miss Newbill 
won a lovely silver dish and a 
trophy was awarded Dr. Milne for 
being the first gentleman to cross 
the finishing line. 

The annual Snowden Hunter 
Trials are being held the 13th of 
April. These trials are the most 
spectacular and colorful events 
which take place in this vicinity 
during each spring of the year. 
If you have seen them before you 
will certainly want to see them 
again — if you haven't seen them, 
don't miss them this year. The 
advanced jocks have already been 
schooling their horses over the 
outside course at Snowden in an- 

Water-Whims" To 
Show Swimmers In 
Action Here April 8 

King Neptune and his court of 
chlorine cuties will present on 
April 8 the most stupendous, collo- 
sal, and beautiful aquacade ever 
prensented at Mary Washington 
college. "Water-Whims" is the 
name of the show and the antics 
of the mermaids will be both hu- 
morous and delightful. 

The pool is the setting for the 
water follies, but have you ever 
seen a flower garden bursting into 
bloom, or a debutantes' ball pro- 
gressing in the middle of the pool ? 
Well, Neptune's mermaids do all 
this and more besides. Cleopatra 
turns the pool into the glassy-sur- 
faced Nile and from there we get 
on our ''magic life-preserver" and 
fly to Radio City Music Hall where 
the Rockettes will perform in per- 
fect rhythm and beauty. 

Terrapin Club is sponsoring this 
show which is to be given April 
8th. Dorothy Marvin is the chair- 
man of the committee, assisted 
by Emily Ribet, Betts Wilson, 
Shirley Booth, Carolyn Morrison, 
and Phyl Derigon. 

Posters will appear soon an- 
nouncing the time of the show. 
Tickets will go on sale several 
days before the date of the aqua-

MWC Ties With Duke 
For Fifth Place 
In Swimming Meets 

The Terrapin Club, representing 
Mary Washington in the recent 
Southern Intercollegiate Telegrap- 
hic Swimming Meets, tied with 
Duke University for fifth place 
in the final ratings. 

Last season the club acted as 
sponsor of the races because our 
pool was being repaired and our 
swimmers could not participate,

lege between February 15 and 
March 15. The timekkeepers, 
starters, and swimmers are on 
their honor to conduct the race 
according to the rules set up by 
the national board. Mary Washing- 
ton swam on March 8 and March 

Each swimmer's time is tele- 
graphed to the main office where 
it is compared with the times re- 
corded other participants. Terrapin 
entries won a total of 16 points 
which placed the club in a tie 
with Duke. Florida State College 
for Women placed first with the 
Woman's College of the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina coming in 

Individual placings for Mary 
Washington swimmers are as fol- 

Forty-yard crawl — Mary Miller,

English Majors Join 
National Fraternity 

By Ellen Goodrich 

The English Department of 
Mary Washington College recently 
had the honor of being accepted 
into a national English scholastic 
honorary fraternity. On Tuesday, 
March 19, initiation was held to 
incorporate the department into 
the Alpha Epsilon Chapter of 
Sigma Tau Delta. Members were 
installed at a formal dinner meet- 
ing in the special dining room of 
the Hotel Princess Anne in Frede- 
ricksburg. The installations and in- 
itiations preceded a banquet for 
the newly initiated members of 
the college fraternity and Dr. 
Turner, head of the English De- 
partment at Lynchburg College. 

The 14 Mary Washington stu- 
dents who were initiated into the 
fraternity are Isabelle Fox, Elinor 
Dobson, Beverly Parker, Phyllis 
Derigon, Lois Coleman, Prudence 
Burchard, Doris Lippold, Dorothy 
Conway, Emogene Murden, Betty 
Conklin, Carolyn Shankweiler, 
Kate James, and Marilee Hicks. 
The sponsor is Dr. Gteorge Earlie 
Shankle, head of the English De- 
partment. The National Charter 
and certificate of enrollment were 
presented to the group and receiv- 
ed by Dr. Shankle and Miss Lois 

This fraternity will replace the 
"Modern Portias" at the end of 
this school year. Membership is 
limited to English majors, with an 
average of B in English, who must 
have submitted 3000 words of pub- 
lished material, and have -con- 
tributed at least one article each 
year to the "Rectangle," a fra- 
ternity magazine of Sigma Tau 
Delta. Membership is limited to 
twenty-five members yearly. 

Special credit belongs to Dr. 
Shankle, who has worked several 
years in building up the "Modern 
Portias" to gain admittance to 
this fraternity, a signal honor to 
the English Department of Mary 
Washington College. 


The BULLET is in need of a 
cartoonist! Anyone wishing to 
apply please submit samples of 
her work to Room 218, Ball. 

From the cartoons turned in, 
a cartoonist will be chosen, and 
her name added to the BULLET 
staff. She will become regular 
cartoonist for our paper. 

Selection will be based on 
originality and ability to con- 
vey an idea clearly. Drawings 
should be on 8 in. x 10 in. paper 
and should be done in dark ink, 
with well defined lines so they 
could be easily photographed 
and engraved. 


A very important 
announcement will 

be made in this 
column next week.
