Page Four Technical Institute of Jayem Offers Course to Graduates The new two-year technical course offered to high school graduates at John Marshall's Virginia Mechanics Institute gives unlimited opportunities for advancement in industry, according to Mr. Karl Stutzman, an instructor there. '"The program is briefer, more intense, and more practical than the studies in an engineering school," said Mr. Stutzman, who is also a teacher at the University of Richmond. Firms Want Boys Richmond firms have called the school looking for hovs qualified in their particular industries, he said. With work as hard to find as it is today, he believes this new course really has something to offer to high school graduates. General basic education is conducted for the following six general areas of industry: tobacco, paper, textiles, construction, graphic arts, and transportation. The first-year studies are fairly similar in all the different fields. Mathematics, English, mechanics, economics, and ei...

Page Two What Is May to You? "The Spring is here—the delicate footed May, With its slight fingers full of leaves and flowers; And with it comes a thirst to be away, In lovelier scenes to pass these sweeter hours. —REBECKAH WILLIS. Here's a new May. The cold and rigor of winter have gone, and the most beautiful month of the year puts the spirit of spring into the hearts of young and old. In the United States, a generation ago there was the custom of hanging May baskets filled with flowers on the door on the eve of May Day. This custom started centuries ago in Rome, where a large procession of gay, laughing persons collected the hawthorne blossoms, the flower of May, and celebrated the day. The Maypole dance is still an event of May Day, both here and in Europe. May is the time to be gay, and every girl hopes to be the May queen. Some follow an old custom and rise before the sun rises and wash their faces in the dew. Miraculously the girls will grow beautiful, according to tradition. ...

With Buddy Simmons, Allen Barbee, and Jack Sandford winning first places the Justices came into the running. Also contributing to Jayem's cause were Joe Holland, Buddy Gregory, Cecil Cheatham, and Percy Blackburn.

Page Four Adams Speaks To Students Gives Valuable Tips On Personality Traits At Home, School, Work Have we the qualities, when we are looking at ourselves, that we like in other persons ?" asked Mr. Lucien Adams, director of instruction for the public schools in Richmond, when he spoke in the sophomore assembly, two weeks ago last Tuesday, on personality traits. Mr. Adams explained that everynoe has a personality, whether it is good or bad, and that he should make the most of it. Interest in Others "We need to become interested in other persons and if we are not sincere in our interests it does not work well," the speaker continued. "When pepole are friendly to you it depends to a large measure upon yourself, and not upon the other person," he added. Mr. Admas advised the students to be good listeners, to talk with others about their interests, and above all, to let other persons know that you appreciate their work.

Page Two It's Been A Long, Long Time Remember us? We're those trembling, unknown and unknowing sophomores that entered John Marshall in 1947. We're the ones that are up for graduation! Don't think that we're snooty, we're just proud—proud of the honors, achievements, and fine records that we were permitted to add to the long list of honors left by those who have circled the halls of Jayem before us. When we entered John Marshall, the clubs, corps of cadets, school publications, and leading organizations held a mysterious fascination for us. It wasn't long, however, until we were a working part of these clubs and organizations. We soon found that it wasn't all fun and no work as we had it pictured it to be. The annual had to be assembled, the school paper published, the school magazine edited, all in our "spare time . And, boy. few seniors had any spare time. The faculty, too, was something new with whom to get acquainted. We soon found and singled out the ones not,to get". It seems ...

May 18, 1950 Justices in Position To Capture City Title John Marshall Trips Irish,7-3 Long Goes Route for Victors; Clinches City League Tie; Justices, Saints Clash Today John Marshall assured itself of at least a tie in the final City League standings by defeating Benedictine 7 to 3 at Byrd Park Tuesday. The Justices jumped into an early four-run lead in the first inning with Allen Barhee's three-run homer, the big blow. The Cadets rallied for two markers in the second frame but never threatened thereafter. Jayem added another run in the sixth stanza, thus putting the contest on ice in the frame when they tallied two runs. Vance Long went the distance for the winners allowing 10 hits, but he was effective in the clutch. Lonnie Harvey twirled the entire tilt for the host club and received credit for the loss. Mel Roach paced the Justices at the plate, with two hits for three trips. John Marshall will meet St. Christopher's on the latter's diamond today at 3 :45, and Thomas Jefferson ...

Page Two A Word to the Principal When we entered the halls of John Marshall in September 1947, we probably were too timid and frightened to notice the dingy walls, the ill-lighted rooms—or, to put it all under one head—the need for physical improvement and consequently an environment better suited to happy youth. Along with us, there entered John Marshall the same semester a person who immediately saw what had to be done. He made requests of the School Board. Without hesitating, they had the classrooms and corridors painted in soft, easy-on-the-eyes colors. Fluorescent lights replaced the out-dated ohes. Office machine courses were opened in which a student might practice and learn to use typical office machines. New typewriters filled more classrooms than ever, replacing the out-moded, worn-out models, and for the first time, the bookkeeping department received adding machines that sped up work fourfold. Not only new equipment, but new desks came to clasrooms with clean, polished f...

Page Two It's Later Than You Think Since the start of the Korean War June 25, the future of all the world has changed. Certainly, many of the students in John Marshall are having to make different plans from the ones they were thinking of prior to that date. Already, many boys who were in high school only a year are now members of the Armed Services; some have even gone overseas. There is a bill before Congress which, if passed, would require all boys between the ages of 17 and 20 to serve at least six months in some branch of the Armed Forces. Now that Richmond public schools has added a year to the requirements for graduation from high school, this bill would, in some cases, take a boy before he received his high school diploma. All this means we must do some serious thinking—now. It is evident that, if the new generation is not better educated, with a greater understanding of the basic needs, customs, and rights of other countries, there can never be peace among the nations of th...

Page Two First Public Appearance With the band playing, the choir singing, and the cheerleaders leading the audience in cheers, the John Marshall Senior Class will make its first public appearance a week from this coming Monday at the Community Chest luncheon at the Grays' Armory. This invitation to attend the luncheon has become a traditional gesture on the part of the Chest directors, and it behooves the senior class to reciprocate with the same courteous conduct which has caused much favorable comment from Chest workers in the past. Faculty members and student leaders will be honored with seats at the speaker's table. The same luncheon prepared for the Chest workers will be served to the seniors. Since the drive is to raise money for the many worth while Red Feather agencies in our city, the seniors will have the opportunity to pay for the cost of their meal if they so desire. This annual invitation to participate in the Community Chest drive and to attend this yearly luncheon is...
