The senior class presented the play, Midsummer Nights Drmm, during the spring of 1930 while Billy Ballou was editor. The play was a great success because of its liveliness, excellent acting, and marvellous scenery. The juniors promised plenty of fun and laughs at their junior stunt night in the school auditorium. Many stunts, skits, songs, and dances entertained the juniors that night. John Marshall's three publications won three cups, top awards, in a publication contest held at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. To increase the circulation of The Monocle ...

Page Six Overton Jones Reviews Years Reveals Activities of Staff Of 1932-33 Monocle When He Edited Paper Overton Jones, Times-Dispatch reporter and once Monocle editor, has written the following about members of his staff of the school paper: "I'm afraid that the biographies (excluding war service) of the top members of the 1932-33 Monocle staff do not make sensational reading. Those I have been able to trace appear to have lived rather routine lives," he said. "Happily, they seem to have stayed out of serious trouble with society, as I didn't find a single one of them in jail. None of them, except the tditor-in-chief, ended up in newspaper work," he added. Irvine Naval Officer Tate Irvine graduated from the University of Virginia, taught a year at Saint Christopher's, and returned to the University for his M. A. degree. During the war he served in the Navy on the foNowing ships: USS Albatross (Am 71) in Greenland, USS Trident (AMc 107), USS Puffin (AMc 29), USS Incessant (Am 24.8) ...

Page Eight Tells Class About Home Benjamin Margerison Tells Journalism Class About Schools, Sports Benjamin Margerison, an Englishman now making his home in Richmond, spoke to the journalism class last Friday, a week ago, about the schools, sports, and conditions in England. The night school Marshallite's advice to the class was to take ,a language while at school. "You may never use it," he said, "but you never can tell!" He never thought he would leave England; but when the First World War broke out, and he was sent to Italy, he had no trouble talking to the people there. He had studied Italian in school. Boys, Girls in Different Schools The boys and girls in England do not usually go to the same schools, he said. They start at the age of five, and school is compulsory until they .are sixteen. There is no graduation (in the American sense of the word) from the schools, and to get a diploma students have to go to college or a higher grade school. Many students go to night school fo...

I turned on the radio the other day to listen to the Monocle Review, and was I surprised to learn that the Monocle celebrates its 20th anniversarv this year. Martha called me the other night and told me about the special issue which will be going to press soon and that there was no news about the class of '42. As I wouldn't like for my class to be omitted, I thought I would drop a note and tell you about what some of us have been doing since graduation. I called Mrs. P. F.

March 10, 1949 20 Years Ago - - Justices Have Good Year In 1929 Sports Season Since The Monocle first appeared in the spring of 1929, the sport season record began in the paper with basketball. The Justices had a successful year in basketball, with Gordon Baker doing well to support his team. He led John Marshall's basketball team to Lexington for the sixth annual All-Southern Atlantic Tournament for prep schools, sponsored by Washington and Lee Universitv. The corps of cadets had had a basketball team that did exceptionally well. The teams were somewh'ait handicapped that year by lack of a playing floor. As a last resort, the George Wythe gymnasium had to be used for home games. The attendance had been comparatively small, but the boys did not become discouraged and acquitted themselves in true Marshallite style. The John Marshall baseball team was somewhat successful during this year, but Fork Union won from the Justices twice by a slight margin. After this, Captain Waddell Stewar...

Page Two Most Haled of the Hateful Low moans, issuing from room 607 in Municipal Hospital, resounded throughout the silent corridors. White clad nurses passing through the spotless hall and hearing the heart stirring cries looked toward the door with a sympathetic appeal in their tear filled eyes. They realized that everything possible was being done for the young patient. Let's steal a look at the patient, a young girl of about twenty with youthful beauty still evident in her pain contorted face. The cause of her unending suffering—that most hated of the hateful diseases—cancer! Through ignorance or carelessness, this girl's condition has advanced to a dangerous state. You, yes, you could be lying in that girl's place, and again you may never know the torture that accompanies this disease. But take no charfces —prepare yourself against such a misfortune, because cancer in its earlier stages is in many cases curable. Protect yourself—learn the danger signals and keep alert for them....

Page Two Cancer Is a Killer Look at the clock. In a few seconds the hand will jump, and at that moment you will know that someone has just died of cancer. One person dies of cancer every three minutes! What does that mean to you? Maybe your family has been untouched so far by this terrible scourge. So far. Those two words could mean the difference between four persons in a family and three—yes, any family, for cancer isn't particular as to where it strikes. One person every three minutes —rich, poor, men, women, adults, and children. A little girl's mother went to the doctor for a check-up. She returned home pale, and in a quiet voice said, '"I have cancer.' "Is that bad?" asked the child. Bad? Yes, it was bad, all right. A year later the child was motherless; yet, if the check-up had been made a year earlier the mother could have lived. Medical science is striving to discover a cure for this merciless and painful disease. The necessary research costs millions of dollars, however. Y...
