Page Two Easter Morn It's Easter time! Arise from your sod tombs, you seemingly dead flowers! You bare and drab trees, put on the attire of the season! Evergreens, your dress is far too dark. Array yourself with leaves of lighter green! Ah yes, already we see you are busily adorning yourselves. But wait, there in your hustle and bustle, have you forgotten the meaning of the season? Have you forgotten the message of Easter? With the sudden change from the drab to the glorious in nature at Easter time, the natural impulse of mankind is to do likewise. Mom gets a new hat, Dad, a new tie, and you find yourself arrayed in everything new from hat to shoes. The dull and drab colors of winter are cast aside and the gay adornment of spring is taken on. As tradition has it, mankind and nature alike will arise on-Easter morning in all its gaiety. Instinctively many will turn toward church. The beautiful lilies will adorn the rostrums and altars, and people will fill the pews as they have not d...

Page Four To Work or Not To Work Many Jayem Students Agree Sununer Jobs Are Valuable Only 38 school days left! While seniors are trying to make up their minds as to what occupation to enter after school is out, other students are considering what type of a job to take this summer. Many desperate students share the views of Randy Stevens, a ninth grader, and confess they're willing to accept almost any job which might come along. However, others are inclined to agree with Carolyn Vincent, a 9L student in 212W, who says, "I certainly don't want a job this summer. I'm too lazy." Jimmy Fitzhugh, also a freshman, will probably have one of the most unusual vocations this summer. Jimmy will be employed as a honey dipper. "It's not what you think it is, though," he added, and this reporter completely agrees. (By the way, if anybody would like to know what honey-dipping is, you can find Jimmy in homeroom 212W). Some students have part-time jobs during the school months, which automatically b...

Page Two Roses For Mother "Faith of our mothers, living still in spite of dungeon, fire, or sword." Throughout the years, men have made tributes to their mothers for the inspiration, faith and courage which they have given them. How happy many of those mothers would have been to have been sent those roses while they were yet aliver The father of two teenage lads was out of town on business. During his absence the boys planned dates for each night. One night as they were getting ready to go out, their mother said, "I certainly would like to have a date with you." Assuringly they joined in, "Ah, don't worry Mom, we'll make it up to you on Mother's Day." "I'd like a dozen roses for my mother; for Mother's Day, you know. One rose for each month of the coming year." With a sigh of satisfaction the prevailing thought was, "Now isn't that fine. I'm sending Mom roses for the coming twelve months all in one bouquet." A card, a gift, a bouquet or corsage of roses mean a great deal to her. But...

Looking through this semester's editions of The Monocle, we find that since the beginning of the year several honors have been awarded our school. Maybe some of us hadn't realized we have so much of which to be proud. Don't we sometimes tend to degrade our school — to look at all the things we haven't accomplished? Often people from other high schools try to convince us that their school is better than ours. Do they succeed? Do we begin to talk about what other schools have or do that we don't? Let's resolve not to look at the negative side. Instead let's take inventory of what Jayem has achieved. Let's take pr...

Page Two On, Build On! "Build thee more stately mansions . . Each person is a builder, however great or small. Everyone is at work on his edifice of life. The goals differ but each is building a mansion. A foolish man builds his house upon sand; a wise man builds his upon a rock. Each constructor knows the importance of a solid foundation. Bricks of knowledge—English, History, Art and Mathematics have been laid with mortar of ambition, curiosity, and faith added by the kind and understanding masters. The foundations of these edifices are nearing completion as we near graduation. "Build thee more stately mansions, O my fellow students, As the swift seasons roll!" The achievement of a goal is not the end: it is the beginning of pushing on toward greater things. Our high school life will soon be a past chapter in our lives, but if we have built for the future, it will be the stepping stone to greater things in life. -J. M. R. Outch,, for Oh!

Page Four Reporter Rides Locomotive Cab On Senior Trip Friday, May 17, 56 happy J.M. Seniors trooped through the portals of Broad Station to board the train for New York. As the Marshallites were settling themselves for their ride, an entirely different scene was taking place up front. Aided by hand signals from the ground crew, two businesslike Richmond, Fredericksburg and -Potomac (RF&P) diesel locomotives were back- ing down to couple onto the train. These blue and gray monsters, each 16 feet tall and 70 feet long, were coupled easily, and the ground crew hooked in the air brake hose and the steam pipes. On the "head end," as railroaders call it, were engineer J. W. Dwyer. fireman R. W. Parham, and assistant road foreman of engines F. F. Fergusson, the men who would take the train to Washington. A routine brake test and the "all aboard" echoed up the station platform. Engineer Dwyer released the brakes and opened the throttle. With bells ringing furiously, the 4500 ho...

Hero Against Hermitage John Marshall downed Hermitage on May 10 due to a fine relief pitching job by Mel Rideout and some clutch hitting by Billy Schwartz. After seven innings of play, the game ended 6 to 5 in favor of John Marshall. Hermitage took a 2 to 0 lead after the first inning and added to the score in the third to make the score 5 to 0. However, the Justices scored 2 runs in their half of the third inning by a group of singles coming from the ■ bats of Tommy Newsome, Rip Mangum, Peanuts Gibson, and Tommy Goode.

Page Two Living Documents When you enter the main lobby of John Marshall, have you ever noticed the two famous documents there? These immortal documents, the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution, were presented to John Marshall High School by Mr. William B. Thalhimer. While pausing to meditate upon these inspiring writings, your thoughts journey back to 1775-1783 and to 1787 —years of the American Revolution and Constitutional Convention. You hear the shots of April 19, 1775, as the first battle of the American Revolution unfolds at Lexington and Concord. Screams, joyous yells, and the wild tolling of bells can be distinctively heard, July 4, 1776, as the Declaration of Independence is officially adopted. The valiant Continental troops are seen trodding over hills, dales, and down the snowy trails, as the march for freedom presses on. Stains of blood on Valley Forge's snows are solemnly observed with dismay. At Yorktown, Virginia, you see the Continental Army w...
