State Champions Fail in South Atlantic Game THROUGH THE FIELD GLASSES By ANNA MAE GUZA AND 808 STEELE IT'S NOT SO BAD AFTER ALL It was a severe disappointment to see our gallant "courtiers" eliminated in the first round of the South Atlantic Tournament last week, but we haven't any alibis—we just weren't up to top form. The St. John's team averaging slightly more than six feet, two inches in height, was the tallest aggregation encountered this year, with the possible exception of the Richmond Frosh, and that five-inch height advantage was probably the deciding factor of the game. The Justices average but five feet, nine inches. But we have nothing to cry about. I wonder how many teams in the country ended their official season undefeated. I wonder how many teams won state championships. I wonder how many teams ended their actual season with nineteen victories against one start. Not many, I can assure you. When one starts to think about it in this manner, one begins to realize just h...

Prior to their visit, the pupils studied about banks and the way they work, for Miss Engelberg discovered that fewer than one-third of the pupils had ever visited a bank or drawn up a check. Receive Pencils When they entered the bank, each pupil was given a pencil and a mimeographed account of the functions of the bank. The tour began in the basement in the board room and the vault rooms. The safety deposit boxes were explained and then the entire class was backed into the vault room. Next, they inspected the main floor. They saw the section where loans are made, the trust department, and the tellers' cages where deposits are made and checks are drawn. The tellers showed the students...

Educational Heads Reply To Interview Dr. Sidney Hall, Mr. Buck Answer Anonymous Article; Monocle Requests Comment Agreeing that the educator was not well informed on conditions in the public schools, Dr. Sidney B. Hall, superintendent of public instruction, and Mr. J. Blair Buck, supervisor of secondary education, replied for a Monocle editor to an interview with a "prominent educator" in the Richmond News Leader. The article appeared in the News Leader March 22. It attacked the present educational system, particularly in the high schools, charging that it "is almost a total failure." It failed to reveal the identity of the educator because he was afraid that he might be "burned for heresy." Dr. Hall said that he felt the statement had been "rather fully answered" by an editorial in the News Leader (March 25), but made this comment: Be Better Informed "In addition I w...

J. M. Meets Hopewell, St. Christopher, Durham THROUGH THE FIELD GLASSES By ANNA MAE GUZA AND 808 STEELE BASEBALL TEAM LOOKS GOOD With a capable pitching staff, a snappy infield, a heavy hiting outfield, and a promising crop of reserves, John Marshall is in for a baseball season that we think will compare favorably with those of bygone days. James Brooks and Ernest Thompson head the pitching staff and will be ably assisted by Woodrow Haynes, Hermon Boehling, Melvin Bowles, Joe Bass, James Bass, and Douglas Holt. Ellsworth Wrenn is the number one catcher, with Earl Harris as reserve. The infield, which has shown up excellently in practice and previous games, is composed of Billy McCann, at first; George Williams, at second; Durwood Robertson, at shortstop; and either Curtis Jennings or Robert Parham at third. Parham, regular outfielder last year, will alternate in the outfield. Reserve infielders include Winston Siegfried, Stanley Garbett, and Shelton Williams. Roy Lacey, Captain Morr...

Page Four Contest, Winchester Feature Band Plans Cubs Hear T. B. Address Miss Nora Hamner Addresses Journalists on Tuberculosis; Free Clinical Work Offered Miss Nora Spencer Hamner, the executive secretary of the Richmond Tuberculosis Association, spoke to the journalism class of 104 on Thursday of last week. Miss Hamner discussed the fifth annual tuberculosis campaign to begin throughout the United States on April by the state and local tuberculosis associations. "This campaign," said the executive secretary," is stressing the early symptoms of tuberculosis today. We have found that more people between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five have it, but do not realize it, than any other age." The only cure for tuberculosis is rest. Every person should go to see his doctor at least once a year for a thorough examination, she said. The death rate shows that about three times as many girls die of tuberculosis as boys. "I believe that if this is stressed throughout the state in schools, t...

Justices Oppose Petersburg and Tee Jay THROUGH THE FIELD GLASSES By ANNA MAE GUZA AND 808 STEELE LET IT RAIN Rain, the proverbial Nemesis of baseball players and sports writers, has been playing havoc with the Justice baseball squad all the season, but the team is shaping up nicely just the same. George Williams, snappy little lead-off man, is playing a whale of a game at second base, although he is by far the smallest man on the team. Besides being a flawless fielder he can be counted on at almost any time to lay down a single in the short outfield. James Brooks, southpaw moundsman, is showing possibilities of becoming one of the best pitchers turned out in a long time. Besides his pitching ability he is a good batter. Chances of ending the season with a better than .500 average are becoming brighter all the time. * * * *- TRACK MEET SUCCESSFUL The first annual Central District Track Meet was run off without a hitch by the University of Richmond, and Spider officials deserve congra...

Page Four C Company Wins Cadet Sophs Listen To Preacher C. H. Patterson, Missionary To China, Tells of Eastern Country; Explains School _ "It has been twenty-five years since I was a sophomore at John Marshall," replied Mr. Craig Houston Patterson, a missionary to China, as he spoke to the sophomore assembly two weeks ago today. Mr. Patterson was a member of the football team and head of the Marshallite club during the three years he attended John Marshall. He had the mumps when the picture for the annual was taken and got out of bed to go to the studio. Gives Chinese Sentence "There is one sentence in Chinese I would like you to remember. Just think of the three English words, ah, eye, and knee, and you will never forget it. It means 'I love you'," said Mr. Patterson, laughing. Mr. Patterson explained that if one were to go into a school in China, one would find the girls wearing bobbed hair, using powder and lipstick, dressed in school uniforms, and following practically the same ...

Freeman Speaks Most of the officers and graduating members of the corps of cadets journeyed to Petersburg, Virginia, last Friday to watch the reenactment of the Battle of the Crater and learn some history.

Drewry, who presided at the reenactment of the battle, gave an introduction which was followed by the narrative address of Dr. Douglas S. Freeman.

Marshallites Face Little Keydets, Brigadiers THROUGH THE FIELD GLASSES By ANNA MAE GUZA AND 808 STEELE AND I TALKED ABOUT SCHOOL SPIRIT Once when I was a struggling cub reporter I wrote a story about about the Tee Jay pep rally that began something like this —"Blasting to the very skies the far fetched idea that John Marshall lacks school spirit . . .". Well, after seeing some of the frenzied (? ? ?) enthusiasm that the student body shows toward the baseball team, I find that I am guilty of the greatest sin of journalism —failing to be accurate. When a school has 3,000 students and 300 attend the baseball games, that's bad, but when a school has 3,000 students and 30 attend the games—well, you guess what it is. I can't find an adjective that describes it. We have a good ball club, and I really can t understand the lack of spirit. We should hang our heads in shame when we realize that the spectators at the junior high school games outnumber those at John Marshall's games ten to one. ...

Page Four National Parents, Teachers Co P. T. A. Talks About Youth Government Representatives Urge Parents and Teachers To Fight Menaces of Youth Speakers at the convention of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers held in Richmond this week discussed problems of education. Mrs. Hamilton Wright, special representative of the United States Bureau of Narcotics, urged the parents and teachers to fight marijuana, a form of drug that has become a menace to youth. She said that it is sold in the form of cigarettes and produces a temporary sense of complete irresponsibility that leads to crimes of violence. Wants Vocational Guidance Vocational guidance was advocated by Dr. John W. Studebaker, U. S. Commissioner of Education. He pointed out that this was more important than vocational education. "Teach youth to think clearly, reason, weigh evidence, and enable them to meet new situations," Dr. Studebaker said, characterizing this as the major task of education today. Remove Causes of...

Jay Em Crushes Tee Jay, Dominates All-City THROUGH THE FIELD GLASSES By ANNA MAE GUZA AND 808 STEELE SUCCESSFUL BALL SEASON CLOSES When this was written we didn't know the scores of the last two baseball games, but regardless of how they came out, the national sport closed its doors on a very successful season here at John Marshall. The Justice team of last year was the only team Dave Miller has ever coached that did not end the the season above the .500 mark. The win column easily outweighs the loss column this year, however. Included among the victims are such teams as Petersburg, twice; Thomas Jefferson; St. Christopher's; and the University of Richmond freshmen. The splendid pitching staff has had a lot to do with the team's success. We did Ernie Thompson a wrong .in the last issue when we said "His only fault seems to be a slight tendency towards wildness." Coach Miller showed us the light when he pointed out that Ernie had walked but seven batters in the seven games he had pit...
