- .a-:-if.-.ma ,1-, Z- , ti, FN' fllepaeimeniaf new D By Chrixthel Nungener-- 45 X 1 GN APRIL- 19, the members of home rooms 225 and 207 were the recipients of a delightful pie feast awarded them for their assist- ance in selling subscriptions and ads for the McMain "Echoes". , As the spring weather was exceptionally beautiful, the girls gathered on the campus at fourth period.'Misses Ran- dolph and Cresson were on hand'to assure an even distribution, and the apple, peach, and pineapple pies were indeed delicious.. Rubye Drumright, the business manager of the "Echoes", gave a short address and presented an award to Maxie Meek. who brought the greatest number of ads for the magazine. The staff of the "Echoes" was pleased with the sincere work these girls did and is looking forward to enjoying more of these parties. ' Home room 209, which won the prize for securing the largest num- ber of ads, made a patriotic gesture by donating its award to the Red Cross. Dolores Marsh, a student at Mc- Main, has decided to write an article for the "Reader's Digest" under the caption of "The Most Unforgettable Character I've Ever Met". The center of attraction. is Senorita Broussard, our teacher of the upper classes of Spanish. Dolores is spending her spare moments collecting bits of in- formation from students and teach- ers, as well as Seiiorita herself. It will take about a month to complete the-article and then it will be sent to the Digest. We all hope it will be published so that the world may know of the petite teacher who has done so much to strengthen the bonds of friendship between, the . two- conti- nents in the.Western Hemisphere. A, V An amusing incident- happened oneof Miss- B1-own's United' States- Histdryfclasses a few days ago. ' -The girls were 'asked to write the defini- tion of "suffrage". The majority of the answers proved to be boners. One definition was: suffrage-the short- age of money: Another stated that E-'Ci-H-OE-S f suffrage is the condition in which people are suffering. Finally the correct answer came along Cmuch to Miss Drown's reliefl. Suffrage is the right to vote. Once, again we are publishing a Senior issue of the "Echoes", It is fitting that we have a section de- voted to the class play. "'And Cam'e The Spring" is the play which has been selected as the class play for the graduates of June 1946. The cast is as follows: Mr. Jeffrey Hartman - Shirley Siegel Elliott Hartman-Mary Lou Soule Buzz Lindsay-Carol Shockey Keith Nolan-Peggy Robert Freddie North-Lucia von Gohren Mr. Fields-Betty Grethe Alan Fields-Rose Marie Letten Clancy-Bobbie Sue Blanchard Messenger Boy--Geraldine Owens Mrs. Louise Hartmna-Bitsy Pow- 'ell Midge Hartman-Janet Rieke Virginia Hartman-June Ducour- nau , Carollyn Webster-Juanda Corbin Gabby Allen-Beverly Guess Edna-Audrey Armbruster Mrs. Fields-Patricia Seghers Christine Meyers-Gloria Seymour The following has been said about the play and I quote it to give you an idea about the play: "There are plays and plays about modern American families. But only occasionally do two authors approach the subject with the freshness, in- sight, and humor which characterizes "And Caine The Spring", the new comedy by Marrijane and Joseph Hayes. f ' ' ' "Today, when comedy is especially needed in the world, these two au- thors' have 'supplied it lavishly, all' while preserving the naturalness and heightening thecolor of their inter- esting characters. It has often been said' that all good comedy springs from character. Although "And Came The--Spring" is full of unex- lf - "vinci '-, -Il' -r M .L pected and highly diverting situa- tions, the emphasis on truth and char- acter is foremost. "Life is made up of poignancy as well as laughter-and what is more filled with both these qualities than first love? What has more universal HPDQI? Here is a moving as well as an -'amusing picture of a first love which begins an avalanche of com- plications calculated to win the' ap- proval of even the saddest member of any audience. "Written with sensitivity, "And Came The Spring" skims along blithely as it relates the amusing story of the 'Hartmans when the youngest girl in the family finds her- self enormously successful ffor a whilel in her manipulation of other lines for her own ends. The story builds to deft and hilarious climaxes all the while keeping its eye on the human traits and emotions motivat- ing the characters." K At the beginning of last term twenty-five lucky girls were selected to be Senior B representatives and to carry on as representatives when they became Senior A's. They have been kept very busy throughout their senior year, collecting ring, picture, luncheon, and gift money. The of- ficers of they class are, Mary Lou Soule, presidentg Sara Jones, vice- presidentg Jane Clay, secretaryg Jo- anne Thornbury, treasurerg Mary Anne Thompson and Georgia Fischer, assistant treasurers. Since February they had met as a club group until April, when they were disbanded. One of the things they accomplished was deciding about flowers for grad- uation. Roses were decided upon, with pink and light green as class colors. Then they saw to' Senior A balloting, collecting various 'senior material for the "Echoes", and get- ting senior pictures ready for publi- cation in our magazine. Since the representatives have been disbanded, a small group of nine girls meet together at club pe- riod.- These girls have counted and drawnup the Senior ballots, discuss- ed the class poernfand song, and geni erally carried -on the' work 'of the Senior class, under the guidance bf Miss Carolyn'Steir, ourfaculty ad- visor., These girls, together with the whole Senior class, are looking for- ward to' graduation, the culmination of their high school life. il F Forijl-.veven

.. , 'wif K 1 B e.i.,, - V ,ii the gditlit Speafts e Franklin Delano Roosevelt A APRIL 12, 1945, was a day which brought sadness to thehearts of all Americans and many people around the globe. The death of this great president, who only a few months before had, for the fourth time, taken the oath of president of these United States, came when the world needed him most. A Roosevelt entered into public life for tl.e first time in 1910, when he was elected to the New York State Senate. Three years later he was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy in which office he served for seven years. Roosevelt's true cour- age and character were shown in 1921 when he was stricken with paralysis and had to retire from pub- lic life. He worked hard to regain his health, and after only eight years was elected governor of New York. Then in 1932 he was elected to the presidency for the first time. No other American president had served so 'long and successfully won over crises of so many kinds. His ideas and strength of character would have gone far in making a 'lasting peace at the San Francisco Confer- ence. ' 1 His courage and true leadership had brought this nation out of the dark period of depression, and at the outbreak of this second World War his conduct and knowledge of for- eign affairs held America in the spot- light for the birth of world peace. It was at his first inaugual, March 4, 1933, that he uttered the words for which perhaps he was best known: "The only thing We have to fear is fear itself." The truth of this statement has been proven re- peatedly through his terms of of- fice. The name of Franklin Delano Roosevelt will go down in history as one of America's greatest presidents. Forty-six - 5 -..g.-n,.1..1.n1 1 .1 -. 1 .- .- 1 1 .- - President Truman , FATE brings to the American presi- dency in this critical hour a citi- zen from the Middle West. Harry S. Truman, born and raised on a farm, was the average American until he reached middle age a few years ago. He served with the American Expedi- tionary Force on the Western Front during World War I and returned home to be named to a 'minor coun- try office. After a few years he was surprisingly transferred 'to the United States Senate. As a representative- of Missouri, Senator Truman worked diligently. His efficient leadership of an investi- gating committee which rendered ex- cellent service brought him favorable national notice. - In 1944 he was nominated as vice- president on the ticket with Mr. Roosevelt. Now by the unforeseeable death of our outstanding chief, this Missourian becomes the nation's highest executive. Those who know him predict that he will make good in the White House as he made good in the Senate..Tre- mendous responsibilities have been thrust upon his shoulders. He, is called to make momentous decisions about matters which he had had no direct concern. But steady courage, ha good mind, the habit of diligence and the sturdy adaptability, he has al- ready shown, can carry him through. His first official declaration, pledging the continual fighting of the war on all fronts with all vigor and to a successful conclusion, is acclaimed by Americans and by the Allies around the world. All patriotic Americans join in of- fering their good wishes to our new president and sincerely hope that his administration will prove successful in all its undertakings for national and world welfare. --' 'Q J' -. English. 1 Program By Sharon Mattea,.'4-6 , 'MCMAIN students listened with much pleasure and appreciation to the splendid program on poetry, which was presented and prepared by the English and Music depa1't- ments. Betty Dufour, Mistress of Ceremonies introduced the subject. Poetry, one of the fine arts, appeals to the emotions and stirs one's feel- ings. The poet uses words as the artist uses color. A An epic, a narritive poem of high character, deals with a noble hsubject in ainoble manner. The Greek epics are the greatest and most famous of any country. Rosalie Rosenburg de- livered Alcinou's speech, written by the Father of the Epic, Homer. The form of verse closest to music is the lyric. -It ,is more "'personal" than any other type of poetry and the strongpersonal feelings it ex- presse do 'not remain the length of the poem. " Fleur Marcoux read the most popular of all love songs-"A Red, Red Rose" by Robert Burns. Two lovely old songs, "To Celia" bv Ben Jonson and "Who Is Sylvia?" by Shakespeare, were delivered by the Glee Club: Free verse, a forceful type of poetry that does not follow a regular pattern, has no rime. It has a pleas- ing roll and where the reader would naturally pause, the lines end. Carol Atkins recited "For You, O Democ- racy,,f' by Walt Whitman. -Other types of poetry illustrated were the ballad, by Lily B. Staehling and Dolores Lloveras, "Cruel Broth- ers"g The Sonnet "Nature", written by Longfellow, was given by Maja Raam, and Patsy Adams delivered "On His Blindness" by Milton. The ode by John Keats "Ode on a Greecian Urn", was given by Geraldine Camp- bell. The patriotic lyric by Henry Van Dyke, "Pro Patia", was recited by Christophel Nungesser. This informative program was con- cluded with the song, "Oh Believe Me, If All These Endearing Young Charms", by the Student Body.

McMain Celebrates Pan American Da Bylsharon Mattes, '46 WHEN the Mother's Club met in April, a. colorful tableau of the spirit existing between the United States and the other Latin American countries was presented to them. All of the participants were dress- ed in' extremely realistic costumes and the effect was one of much color and vivacity. To add more to the Spanish setting, the art classes paint- ed huge fans of brilliant colors which were placed at the rear of the stage as a background. 'Spanish lanterns, scarves, resplendent in their bright Forty-eight colors, and smaller fans, also painted by the art classes were present, cre- ating the atmosphere of a Spanish garden. Katherine Schleuter really gave the audience the feeling of Being transported to romantic old Mexico when, she sangv "Una Vez". The Spanish classes sang "Ay, Ay, Ay," and "Chiapaneca," folk songs of Chile and Mexico respectively. Norma De Latte and Mellow Lesky danced to "Chiapaneca". The "Mexican Hat Dance" was also a great success, Lucia Von Gohren and Valerie Gati- pon ably performing their parts. The final number with America represented by the Statue of Liberty in the background, and the Latin American countries grouped around her, each bearing- the flag of her country, gave the audience the sensa- tion of actually seeing how closely the nations are united. On the whole, the program was most entertaining' and colorful. All who were present enjoyed it, and if President, Roose- velt, the founder, had been present in our auditorium he too would have been pleased with our efforts.
