Page Four Miss Bray Goes by Air Miss Frances Bray flew during the Thanksgiving holidays to St. Louis, Missouri to attend a national educational association convention. On Thursday, November 26, Miss Bray, junior class counselor at John Marshall High School, boarded a St. Louis bound Lockheed Constellation at the Washington, D. C. airport. Trip, Smooth As the weather was good, the trip to Missouri was a smooth one. Miss Bray has had air travel experience before when she traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, New York City, and Boston, Massachusetts. She has always been fortunate enough to have good weather. However, Mother Nature turned the tables when, on the return flight to Washington, the weather was bad. To get out of the storm, the pilot flew at an altitude of 15,000 feet and still could not completely avoid trouble. Like Riding Through Snow "It was just like riding through drifts of snow," reported Miss Bray. Upon reaching the airport, the ground kept radioing the plane not to 'Land bu...

Page Two Christmas Is Here Again! Christmas is here once again—that season of the year when thoughts temporarily turn from the chaotic conditions of the world to the birth of Christ in Bethlehem many years ago. This is the time of year when the nations of the world unite in celebrating the Nativity, a time when the spirit of giving prevails, the most wonderful season of the year —Christmas. What does Christmas mean to you? Perhaps it means the giving or receiving of presents, Santa Claus, a Christmas tree, the singing of Christmas carols, or a time of peace and harmony. More and more each vear, people are forgetting the real meaning of Christmas and are substituting things such as Santa Claus and the giving of presents to one another. These things are fine in their places, for Santa Claus represents the spirit of Christmas and the giving of presents is an act of love. Still let's not be so busy with Christmas shopping that we forget to stop and remember the real meaning of the Yulet...

Page Two 1949 Brings New Opportunities The new year is here again and with it comes the opportunity for us to pledge once more to try to spend our time, talents, and energy in more useful ways. Many persons say, "I'm not going to make any New Year's resolutions because all I do is break them." These persons are truthful, but have no excuse. Most persons feel that they can accomplish more if they have a goal or aim before them. A miler, running the last lap, will run with more determination if his opponent is just several strides in front of him. Thus, resolutions provide goals for us to strive for, even if we do not whollv achieve them. The first month of the new year gives us other incentives. The list of great men born in January is indeed long. The birthdays of Alexander Hamilton, Robert E. Lee, Daniel Webster, Edgar Allen Poe, and Benjamin Franklin occur in January. The late Franklin D. Roosevelt was also born during the initial month. > During January and throughout ...

Page Two United Nations Act Every story has its villain. This story about the U. N. is no exception. In this case the villain is the Spotlight of Public Attention, which, instead of falling upon the U. N.'s achievements toward peace and stability, has managed to focus upon the political disagreements between the great powers. Suppose we take a bird's-eye view of a few of the accomplishments of the group. . Formed in the interest of foreign children, the UNICEF, a U. N. agency, is one of its important beehivps of activity. This organization has provided billions of meals to hungry little Europeans, Chinese, and Middle Easterners. UNICEF programs are reaching some 4,500,000 undernourished children; besides food, the programs include material for clothing and medical supplies. When the UNICEF launched an anti-tuber-culosis campaign across the ocean, it discovered that of 3,000,000 children tested for that disease, only half had never been touched by T. B. What a pitiful situation! What...

The Justices will clash with the Presidents tomorrow on the Jeffs home court. The Jeffs went down on the short end of a 56 to 33 score in their first engagement with the Justices.

Page Two If jfl We Salute Congratulations to The Monocle for twenty years of service, pleasure, and inspiration to thousands of Marshallites is not enough. In addition I want to emphasize how deeply we appreciate the loyalty and excellent work of the sponsor and staff members during the past two decades. I am sure The Monocle will continue to be more than a school paper —yes, more than a cherished part of our school. We look to The Monocle for continued leadership, not only in the field of journalism, but also in all areas of school life here at John Marshall High School. We cannot ask for the second twenty years to be better than the first. Just keep up the good work! Happy Birthday Twenty Times Blue and white balloons bobbing here and there, blue and white decorations ornamenting the walls and tables, a huge cake holding the spotlight, and gay, laughing voices resounding throughout the halls of John Marshall . . .

March 10, 1949 ? Record ' at 40 Years, Oldest William A. Parrish, First Editor Founded in 1909, with William J. Parrish as editor, The Record, John Marshall High School's literary quarterly magazine, is as old as the John Marshall building, twice as old as The Monocle, and as young as current Marshallites. It is about half the age of the school itself, whose older graduates will tell you that John Marshall is Richmond High School under another name and in other buildings. It may be of interest to young Marshallites to know, incidentally, that Richmond High School was founded some seventy-eight vears ago and that it occupied for many long years the site of the present George Wythe buHding. Thus John Marshall is now nearing the end of its eighth decade. Probing into the past, one learns that voung Parrish, the first editor, was a serious, thoughtful, and studious boy, evidently popular with his classmates and teachep. Getting back a bit into what one may call the prehistoric period of...
