Page Four 'Dutch-Treat' Not Popular With School Girls, Boys Express Opinions Concerning Leap Year Plan; Males Dislike Girls Paying "Hello, Jane, Let's go to a show tonight," '"l'd love to, Jack, but I haven't any money. I went to a basketball game with Bill last night, and spent all my allowance. Why don't you ask Frances?" "I did, but she hasn't any either. What is this w T orld coming to, any way? I can't even get a date tonight!" Perhaps many a dialogue like the one above will take place if "dutch-treat dates" become the fashion, as they were on February 29. Leap Year has caused many Marshallites to give the matter careful consideration. When Grace Womiack was asked what she thought of this new idea, she voiced the opinion that it was an undesirable plan. "It just doesn't work!" she stated emphatically. "When the lad is poor it's a good thing, but I'd rather sit at home than put him in a position like that." "I think it's terrible," objected Marie Eason. "It would take away the c...

John Marshall Tracksters Enter Duke Meet | * SEEING SPORTS * j 1 with HAROLD DOLSEY j | Monocle Sports Editor j : \ "Episcopal, 54 points; John Marshall, 54 points," the track scorekeeper read aloud at Alexandria's Huxton Field, a week ago last Saturday, as both fans and participants grew tense with the final event, the broad jump, dawning. After all but one entry had his final trial, Herb Herbert, Episcopal's wiry jumper, had practically assured himself of first place and the meet —that was, unless Sydnor Walden, the last springer, who had previously won the javelin throw, could leap over twenty feet, a mighty tough job for a high schooler. Deathlike silence prevailed as the ambitious youth commenced his important mission down the cinder path. He started slowly, but gradually increased his speed to a trot, then to a fast gallop. Now, near the jumping line, he broke into a blazing sprint. Flying spikes bitingly toed the wooden mark as a lithe muscular body shot into the air—sailing,...

J, M. Nine Faces Jeffs; Trackmen in Meet |~* SEEING"SPORTS * ! with HAROLD I i Monocle Sports Editor 1 n HAROLD DOLSEY KATHERINE "TIFFY" MILLOWAY When the 1935-36 feminine athletic season ends, John Marshall students can look back over the records of Coach Elizabeth Webb's girls and dub little Katherine "Tiffy" Milloway, the finest all-round performer. Not quite five feet, the 115-pound youngster has compensated what she lacked in height by her unusual speed and coordination. During the hockey season, the wiry sixteen-year old lassie drew considerable praise for formidable defensive tactics at center half. Her teammates on the cage sextette voted her the most valuable player at side center. At present, "Tiffy", who is only a junior, continues to break mark after mark in track. "Since I've been the John Marshall's girls' athletic director," stated Coach Elizabeth Webb, "Katherine has proven to be the most versatile young lady that I've ever coached." * * * * LACY AT THE BAT (Dedicate...

Page Four The Record Wins Honor At Contest Bi-monthly Magazine Misses "All-American" Rating by 35 Points; Better than Usual John Marshall's literary publication, The Record, took a bow last week when it won first honor rating at the National Scholastic Press Association, missing "All-American" by only thirtyfive points. The missing points, according to the judges, were because of lack of art work. "The art work used was of very good taste," commented the report. Editing Rated High Typography, editing, material, and several other phases received the highest possible ratings, while failure to discuss modern occurrences brought a penalty. As a result of the press association suggestions, the next issue will contain several innovations. There will be several steel cuts in the issue of Monday, May 18. Mr. Walter F. Beverly and Miss Eva Branch, literary advisers of The Record, expressed themselves as being pleased over the results of the contest, declaring that it was higher than the maga...

Page Four Miss Haynes Recalls Days At Old J. M. High School Alumna Relates School Days at Richmond High; Now on School Board "My best recollection of John Marshall is the day I taught my own class a lesson in arithmetic," began Miss Jessie P. Haynes member of the Richmond School Board when asked about her high school career. She explained how all teachers had to have some experience in teaching before they could accept a school, and it befell her lot to teach her own class a lesson in arithmetic. ''And can you believe it," laughed the former Marshallite," I got a job on that one day's teaching." Miss Haynes explained that there were only three years of high school work then, but a post graduate course was allowed. It was in her postgraduate course that she took the history of education and pedagogy, which is the art of teaching, and these courses gave her the right to teach. When asked about teachers, she said she remembered Miss Camilla Dickerson and Miss Nora Phillips, both mathem...
