March 3, 1955 J. M. Defeated By T. J. 55-47; Tournament Next Week Scrapping Defeats For Distric Before 2,491 fans, a record for a scholastic activity at the arena, scrapping TJ finally inched an eight point leade over towering JM to bag the Central District title with a score of 55-47. Jayem was slow getting started, while TJ racked up a slim three point lead before the Justices rallied. During the first quarter sluggishness reigned, letting TJ build up an eightpoint lead. The rest refreshed the Justices, who came back with a man-for-man defense and a will to win. By the end of the half Jayem tied the score at 27-27, Lee Southard holding Whitfield down considerably. Steady scoring by the team kept TJ fighting to keep up in the third period. Free throws, with the skill of Bobby Luck and Don Goode, enabled the team to stay ahead up until the end of the period. In the final period frequent fouls on Reedy and Southard helped TJ set up the score of 55-47. The fans witnessed an exhibition...

Students Help To Fingerprint Jayem Seniors About a month ago, four Marshallites began helping Richmond Police Department by fingerprinting all seniors who had not had it done last year. Tommy Greer, Patty Harlow, Janice Glover, and Billie Daniels make their rounds during the recesses to all senior homerooms. Patty, Janice, Billie, and Tommy were all taken to the Police Department to be shown how to finger print. This is being done purely for identification in case of accident and is strictly voluntary. These records will be put in the Richmond city files and also in the Federal Bureau of Investigation Civil files. This is being sponsored by the Student Council headed by Miss Arnita Raffo.

Page Two A Day For the Irish Sure'n 'tis Saint Patrick's Day again Little is known about the good Saint Patrick who was born in either Scotland, England, or France and lived around 398 to 463. He is linked to a romantic, adventurous existence stemming from his capture at the age of 16 by pirates, who took him to Ireland. He served as a slave for six years, during which time he became a Christian. After his escape from Ireland to France, he joined a monastery and finally decided to return to Ireland as a missionary. Saint Patrick taught his religion to the heathens in the land where he had served as a slave. During his lifetime, he founded over 300 churches and baptized over 120,000 people. Since most of the facts concerning Saint Patrick's life are controversial, people have supplied their own interpretations about his role in the religious development of Ireland. The legend is told that he charmed snakes with music and led them to the water where they drowned. Though celebrated in ...

March 17, 1955 J. M. Loses to Wilson; Roanoke Wins Title By a Nose Magician State Ch Jayem Loses Both Jayem and Tee jay, the home teams in the Group I Tournament, were defeated in the first round last week at the Arena. The underdog Justices were overcome by Woodrow Wilson, 60-42, in a heart-breaker for the defending champions. Thomas Jefferson was edged out by Newport News, 52-48. The Roanoke quintet sparked by Lewis Mills, voted the most valuable player in the Group I Basketball Tournament, and Dick Kepley, All-State center, won the tournament wtih a rebound and a quick layin by an alert substitute forward with just eight seconds remaining in the game. The basket brought the favored Jefferson Senior's Magicians from behind for a 42-41 victory that won the Group I Virginia High School Championship. The final goal in the few fleeting seconds remaining in the game smothered the first title hopes of the Wash-ington-Lee Generals who had held a third period advantage of 34-29. It was Je...

The other student replied, "Yes, we lose more Marshallites that way!" Peps, Saints, Imps Marshallite Finds 1930 Record Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Newspaper work can be a pretty interesting and profitable occupation. At least Miss Louise Robertson, Burke Wheatley, and Barbara Kelly seem to thing so anyway. On Saturday, March 12, while on a hunting expedition on behalf of the Don Juan Spanish Club, Burke discovered among newspapers, collected from Sara Williamson's house, a 1930 copy of The Record. When asked what reward he wanted for making such a discovery, Burke said, "Just gimme a hamburger." There were just a few noticeable differences between the 1930 copy and the December 1954 copy. The obvious difference was the color of the pages, which were yellow from age. The old one, ...

TELL 'EM YOU SAW IT IN THE MONOCLE XXVI No. 11 Painting Starts Problem For Jayem Inhabitants With the good comes the bad. The good is the painting of the rooms and halls and refinishing of the floors in the Marshall Building. The bad—well, not so bad —is some of the unusual happenings that are taking place on account of the painting. Miss Peple, formerly of 209 in the Marshall Building, is holding her classes in the Wythe Building. The last time the Marshall Building was painted she was sick for several days with sinus i ~ trouble. Miss Hart, of room 204, has been holding her study classes in the hall outside her room. One particularly amusing event occured in 203 when Peggy Caldwell found her shoes, under which the painters had left a sign "Two-Tone Per-fo-rated Bop Shoes." Several girls were heard commenting on the latest hall decorations, referring to ladders, paint buckets, and brushes which adorn the halls of the second and third floors. The progress of this project is rapid, h...

Page Two Father Gets a Hanky The season of jelly beans, Easter egg hunts, and new spring clothes has come again. Among Marshallites, probably the favorite of these signs of Easter is the new clothes end of the deal. The more sentimental of the "inmates" here no doubt are reminiscing about the days not too many years ago when they searched grass, trees, and bushes for Easter eggs and waited with eager anticipation for the coming of the Easter bunny. Some girls report that Peter Cottontail still brings them a basket each year. Many of them will receive a large chocolate-covered candy egg or that cherished corsage or both from an admiring boy friend. Frustrated fathers by now are wondering how they'll ever pay for their children's finery and still have enough money left to get mother a new hat and an orchid and maybe even get themselves a new handkerchief for their breast pocket. Family autos will soon be shining as they haven't done since Christmas. Got to impress the neighbors, you k...

TELL 'EM YOU SAW IT IN THE MONOCLE XXVI No. 12 Dr. Pep Gives Talk To School An Active Citizen ? Prof. Is Alumnus Dr. Edward C. Peple, brother of Jayem's Miss Mary Peple, spoke to the school in regular assemblies yesterday. The associate professor of English at the University of Richmond, his theme was honesty. The talk was sponsored by the J. M. chapter of the National Honor Society as part of their campaign to improve honesty at John Marshall. Adding a musical note to the program, the choir, accompanied by the orchestra, sang Lambert Wilhousky's arrangement of When Johnny Comes Marching Home. Having taught young people all of his career, Dr. Peple is well acquainted with their problems. Dr. Peple graduated from John Marshall in 1928. He attended the University of Richmond, graduating in 1932, and received his Master's Degree and his Ph. D. from Harvard University. The Ph. D. was awarded in 1936. He then received a scholarship to England to further his research for his thesis. He wa...

Page Two A Story With A Point I am a pencil. There are many like me at John Marshall. I'm lost, of course. My life has been hard and bitter. Most of my early life was spent on a counter at a five-and-ten. It wasn't very long before a teen-age girl picked me up and said she wanted me. I thought maybe I would be happy with my new owner, but that's where I was wrong. My troubles really began then. First I was put in a torture chamber and ground until I had a sharp point on one end. Then my owner started pushing me across a piece of paper. Every so often she would stop writing and chew on me. Every time my point got blunt, she would put me back in that torture chamber again. She really couldn't blame me, though, after all the pressure she put on me. Pretty soon my mistress dropped me out of her notebook, and someone else picked me up. Since then I have been lost and found several times. This kind of life gets sort of wearing after a while. I hope nobody finds me this time. Take my advic...

Hermitage carried away top honors with 55 points, while St. Christopher's was a close third with 41 points. First places were gained by Jerry Davis in the 440-yard dash, John Hebner in the 880-yard run, and Pat McFaden in the broad jump.

Page Four Print Shop Visited JM Cla Journalists See VMI Print Shop The print shop at Virginia Mechanics Institute had the journalism students from 104 as visitors on Friday, April 1. The students paid a call to the shop for a tour to see how the printing of a newspaper takes place. Mr. Guy White, printing teacher, conducted the tour. MACHINES COMPLICATED First slop on the tour was at the Intertype machine, a small miracle in itself that has over three thousand moving parts, almost all of which are dependent on each other, thus constituting a complicated machine. All of the students were impressed with this ingenius mechanism which sets a complete line of type easier and faster than typing a line on a typewriter. It even returns the mats to their places after each line is set. These mats are notched in a certain manner so that no two are alike and only the correct one will fit back into its place. The class also saw a special machine for setting headlines. With the count and type of ...

Page Two Happy Mother's Day The second Sunday of every May is set aside for the observance of Mother's Day. On this day children throughout the nation honor their mothers, who help them in many ways. Soon after the Easter sales are over the Mother's Day sales begin. The stores feature candy, potted plants, and clothes, which are especially pleasing to most mothers. Mothers really deserve a day on which they can be honored and on which they can be thanked for their kindness. Although this day was originally set aside to honor mothers, now it seems that grandmothers, aunts, and wives also receive tokens of appreciation. Small children like to give their mothers gifts which they have made themselves. Sometimes a happy mother has received a small paper pie plate possibly decorated with purple cows and a yellow blot which is supposed to represent the sun. Finally the child arrives at the conclusion that he must give his mother something which will be of use to him also. When a child reac...

Page Two Random Thoughts . . . A few nervous steps across a lighted stage, a neatly tied paper, a warm handshake, and ... 12 years of the same routine are over and done with. It seems simple, but our feelings are more than complex at this late date. Are we sure we want to graduate? Perhaps we feel now that we do. One sentiment is that we are going on to bigger and better things, making our mark in the world. After all, this is what we have been preparing for—or is it? « At this period in our lives we find three types of people those who want to graduate, those who don't want to leave high school, and those who aren't sure of what they want to do. The first group may cover a large number of seniors, who're glad to be free of the same routine, but thankful for the knowledge they ve gained in those 12 years. Some of these "happy" seniors will go to work; others will go on to college. From these college-bound seniors we expect even greater things than those who are not so well prepared....
