Page Two w First in War, First in Peace .. Whenever the name of George Washington is mentioned, no doubt the first thought that flashes to every mind is, "He was the first President." This is true, but he should be remembered for more important things than just being the first President. He should be remembered for his high qualities of character which he displayed as statesman, general, and President. Honesty, truthfulness, and good manners dominated his life, qualities that made him "first in the hearts of his countrymen." Why, before he was fourteen, he wrote a long list of mannerly rules that he thought everyone should practice. Remember the cherry tree incident? How could you forget! Even though tempted to the extent that he "chopped down the cherry tree", he did have gumption enough to tell his father the truth. You see, leaders aren't born nor are their qualities born in them. They are carefully cultivated for years by a person having inside him the desire and ambition to rid...

John Marshall will attempt to snap a nine-game skein at the expense of their cross-town rivals, Thomas Jefferson, when the two quints clash Friday night at 8:00 P. M. on the Grays' Armory hardwood. Sporting an excellent 10 to 2 record, the Jeffs will be top-heavy favorites to trip the Justices in the teams' second encounter of the campaign. Holding a slight four-point lead at intermission, the Presidents closed fast as they thumped Jayem 51 to 36 in their last contest. Big guns in the Tee jay attack are Warren Mills, a 5-foot 7-inch bundle of lightning, and 6-foot 5-inch George Davis, a towering pivot-man. Two other consistent performers are Gail Dunn and Jabe Cooper. Coach Hickey is expected to counter with the veteran trio composed of Mel Roach, Buddy Simmons, and Pond, along with either Allan Barbjf', Joe Holland, John Edw...

Dixon handed them their diplomas. The Jayem verse-speaking choir presented "Freedom —Our American Heritage." Four members, representing four different jobs in life, told briefly what freedom of speech meant to him.

Page Two w You're a Grand Old Flag" "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America . . How many persons ever give a thought to the real meaning behind these well known words? How many feel their hearts swell with pride when they repeat this pledge that is familiar to almost every man, woman, and child in the United States? Not enough, perhaps, for to many these words mean little or nothing—just words repeated mechanically with no feeling. Stop and think for just a minute. What is behind this pledge? What does our flag stand for? It is the symbol of the greatest country in the world, a country filled to overflowing with thriving industries, agricultural wealth, opportunity, and happiness. Its people, for the most part, have some education, are fairly prosperous, and are constantly seeking better ways of living that will benefit the nation as a whole. Where else in the world do people have freedom of speech and religion, freedom from want and fear, the right to "life...

March 2, 1950 Jayem Snaps Victory Fast With Upset Justice Win From Granby Score 43 Points To Opponent's 37 In Lively Game John Marshall snapped a 12-game losing streak when it tripped Granby High, of Norfolk, +3 to 37 last Friday night at the Grays' Armory. Paced by dependable Mel Roach, the Justices got off to a fast start and held that speed. The big forward netted 16 points in addition to playing a steady floor game. Jayem solved the Comets' switching man-to-man defense early in the contest and remained out in front 21 to 13 at intermission. Granby did not go ahead in the third period, and John Marshall held a commanding margin at the three-minute mark. At this point, the Tidewater quint, with Dressell hitting consistently from the floor, caught fire and whittled the lead to a slim four points. But after scoring once more the Justices put into effect a successful freeze and held out until the final whistle. John Irwin and Buddy Simmons performed capably for the winners, who were ...

Page Four Fay Whitlow Tell As Sponsor of Company A "From February to June in 1949 was the most wonderful period in my life. I had a great time," said Fay Whitlow enthusiastically when asked what experience she would remember most in the years to come. Asked to what she was referring, she quickly added that she was talking about the semester she was sponsor for the best company at John Marshall High School, according to her. Fay went on to say that when she first started dating the captain, who was First Lieutenant James Faison at the time, she had no idea that anything would come out of it, but was pleased when she was asked. A Big Thrill '"You just can't imagine how it feels for your company to be marching down the street and for you to know that they are all yours." Fay was speaking of the first P. M.

Page Two Watch It! Your Sportsmanship! You feel it in the air, see it round about you, read it in the; papers, see it approaching on the calendar, hear it from your everyday contacts —yes, the awakening of spring after its winter's sleep. A light sleeper, don't you think? As the saying goes, ""With the coming of spring, a young man's fancy turns . . to things he has thought of during the winter. Possibly one of these is the thought of a good baseball game. Already the spring training has begun, not just for the major leagues, but for the colleges and high schools as well. The coaches, by starting early, hope to whip the boys into shape and have, by opening game, the best all-round nine obtainable. Baseball started many years ago in a crude form, but through the years that followed its beginning, traits or characteristics remained in the game as one great player after another finished his career in baseball, leaving with it the qualities that he displayed as a player. These character...

Page Four Clean Room Invites Pupils Cafeteria Objectives Prove for the Benefit Of the Student Body "This is Your Cafeteria. Help Us Keep It Clean" is one of the many attractive posters in the cafeteria. Three cafeteria objectives are as follows : To serve meals which meet nutritional requirements, well planned, properly prepared and attractively served; to develop experiences which help the child to establish good food habits; to insure, by effective management, the best service at the most reasonable cost to the child. To make the cafeteria a better dining room for the students, formica table tops will soon replace all white glass tops. They are heat and stain resistant. The benches have been refinished and metal slides put on legs to keep girls from snagging their stockings. "The cafetria is for the students.

Page Two W»W! Easter Is Drawing Near Well, spring is officially here. With it come Easter and the glorious holidays—days of relaxation and pleasure—days that seniors will remember as their last vacation while still in high school. They hope so at least. "And it must follow, as night the day . . that a rebirth in spring must follow the dark, sunless winter. The green grass sprouts push heartily at the cold bare sod, buds turn to leaves, pods to flowers, and a green foliage wraps itself around the colorless earth. As should follow spring, the rebirth of a world, Easter comes to mark the rebirth of a Saviour. But, as we enter our places of worship Easter Sunday, arrayed in our new Easter outfits, why not think of those in whose land Easter originated? Will they be observing Easter in spite of their bomb-shattered homes, flattened cities, and dictatorial governments? Let's hope so! To those of us who know what a privilege it is to worship as we please in a land of liberty and who, throu...

Coast to Easy Victory Piling up a 7 to 0 lead in the first few innings, the Justices coasted through the last part of the game to an easy victory. Jayem scored in the first inning when Allen Barbee scored from second on Mel Roach's single. Barbee was the big gun in the attack getting a homerun and a single in four trips to the plate and driving in two runs. Roach and Bus Sheppard also knocked out two singles. Infield, Good One of the most promising factors of the game was the great job turned in by the Justices' infield. With A. 0. Smith at third, Bus Sheppard at short, Bill Snead at second, and Mel Roach at first, the infielders played exceptional ball at their positions. Jayem used five pitchers, with Billy Rose starting and turning out to be the winning pitcher. Following R...

Page Four Student Teachers Are fine Claim Students and Faculty Stuart Smith, a witty senior at the University of Richmond, likes practice teaching and was pleasantly surprised at the classes of John Marshall, even though student teaching leaves him no time for school activities. Mr. Smith is majoring in education, takes French, Spanish, and works on the yearbook. "Doing fine," was the comment of Miss Robertson with whom he has been working. For the past week and a half Mr. Smith has been teaching part of Miss Robertson's sixth period Spanish 1 class. "We had a French test at the professor's home," Mr. Smith told a surprised class. He went on to explain that there are only eight students in the class and one was absent. The professor served coffee, toasted raisin bread, and cigarettes to the pupils. "I think we spent more time eating than taking the test," Mr. Smith shyly explained to the class with a sparkle in his eye. Major in Art Here Miss Mary Tatum, student teacher in art, is m...

Page Two Get the Point? How good is the point system here at John Marshall ? Ihe point system, that is, which says that a student may carry only twenty points at one time. Each office a student holds in school carries a certain number of points, the number of points depending on the importance of the office. Ihe system was adopted with the idea of keeping any one student from holding too many offices and to enable more students to get a chance to hold some school organization office. \ et, it sometimes keeps those who are best qualified from holding an office. Editor of The Monocle, cadet first captain, president of .the student organization, and senior class president all carry fifteen points each. How can there be any real comparison between these offices when they vary so much in the amount of time they require, the amount of work they require, and often in the qualifications of rhe students that fill these offices. The point system is a hindrance when our students compare their ...
