Three times a week Or. Smith and Or.

The Monti student's first contact with the health department comes with her physical examination during the first week of school. The results arc kept on file in the infirmary office.

The limes is the "voice” of the school as it contains news of every activity on campus. It is sent to all students, parents, and a number of alumnae so that they might know what Monti students are thinking and doing. The stall' is composed of seniors who worked on the paper as reporters and writers during their junior year. Juniors contribute to the news, feature, sports, and editorial columns. Some of the girls have had little previous experience in publishing a school paper, but by writing, copy-reading, and editing they get much practical journalistic training. Joseph A.

Dignity is always reflected in the recognition of the fitness of things and in the poise and self-confidence with which one places one’s self above that which might be considered unseemly. BEAUTY Within each girl is the |x wer to recogni .e and appreciate the beauty of everyday c. |x riences. Life is filled with beauty if one is sensitive to it and eager to find it— if one’s eyes are trained to see, one’s ears to hear, one’s heart to understand anti one’s mind to remember. LOYALTY One of the most important of the Monticcllo Ideals is a deep-seated loyalty to the college, one’s friends, one’s family and one’s own beliefs. This deep-seated emotion will grow through understanding, respect and love. WISDOM As the Monticcllo Girl grows in academic stature she seeks to increase her ability to apply her knowledge usefully, for wisdom is the union of knowledge and understanding. SERVICE Each of us has a distinctive personality and unique talents. The Monticcllo Girl considers it not only a privilege but a responsibility to share her gifts with all, thereby helping herself and others to develop to the fullest measure. DEMOCRACY The truly democratic person interests herself in the activities of others. She seeks to understand and respect the ideals and beliefs of her associates while maintaining her own independence of thought and action. FRIENDSHIP Many of your most cherished and lasting friendships will be made while you are at Monticcllo. Your college days will afford rich opportunities for making a wide circle of friends. In true friendship there is dignity, beauty, loyalty, service, democracy, and never-failing consideration. When these ideals have become a part of you, you will have formed an understanding and appreciation of yourself and others. You will have built a strong foundation for living, anti Monticcllo will always be a part of you, for these are the things for which this College stands.activities She s got that good old Monti pep and go, And just to look at her is quite a treat!
