if S X 51 'mfr' "Congratulations from Honor Girl" ' . The Golden Rule Carolyn Rice, '46 THE game with Carvel was over! Central High had won the cham- pionship! The gym was alive with- boys and girls, happy in the fact that their school was victorious. Thirty-two . i , ,i , L , N: i-Er 'UI-Iurry up, Janice," called Jackie. "We'l1 be late for supper if you don't pep it up some." "0. K. I'll be there ina secg let me tie my shoestring." As Janice bent down, 'she saw a light-blue wallet lying on the floor. "I guess it's Jackie's," mused Janice, "I'll take it along. Wait up, Jackie. Here I come." "It's about time. Let's stop at Bailey's for a coke. I think we have time." "O.K. with me." t As the girls entered the drugstore, they were hailed from all sides by their friends, but finally made their way to a corner booth -after stop- ping at about ten tables. "Hi, Jackie and Janice. Sit down. Wasn't it a wonderful game? Did you see that long shot Jimmy made? We couldn't have won without it!" exclaimed Margaret. "And did you see -the way Glenn kept Smith, the star player, guarded? He couldn't do a thing to us," inter- rupted Barbara. So ran the conversation for the next fifteen minutes, with everyone talking at once. "Golly, Jackie," said Janice, look at the time. "Let's go so we'11 have plenty of time to get home." "All right. I'll pay the check. Wait outside for me." Janice waited outside, impatient because of the time Jackie was taking in the long line. "I'll just put the dime for my coke in Jackie's wallet. She won't take it if I don't," thought the girl as she was waiting. Janice rummaged through her purse and finally withdrew the wal- let. On seeing the amount of money .in it, she exclaimed to herself, "Gee, Jackie should be more careful. There's no identification and all her money for her ring is in here! I should keep it until tomorrow until ordering time and teach her a les- son!" Just then Jackie came out of the drugstore. "Here, Janice, hold my books while I put this.new picture of Betty in my wallet. Isn't it good? She just got the proofs back. You' should see the one she gave Jack." "Say, Jackie, is that your wallet?" "Sure, whose do you thing it is? You know mother refused 'to let me buy that pretty blue one in Black's. Mildred Williams went in right after me and bought it. "She said--She wouldn't let you- I mean-You haven't a new wallet?" "No, silly, I told you that. Well, here's my bus. See you in school to- morrow." "I'll meet you at the bench. Come early."

She didn't know what to do. -There was no identification in the wallet, and with the extra money she could get her ring. Because of the illness of Earl, her brother, money was rather scarce in the Browns' house. Earl needed a special operation on his leg if he was to walk again, and of course that meant no extras outside of the graduation dress. ,"But I don't mind, really. After all, a seventeen-year-old graduate knows how to take life." So Janice thought, but she still co'uldn't help feeling a little bit sorry for herself. ".I'll just keep it and return it to the office first thing in the morning." But all thoughts of the purse were wiped from her .mind when she reached home. Earl had fallen and was worse. Her mother was at the hospital where she would stay all night. Janice was to eat. study. and go to bed early. ' All this happened on Monday af- ternoon and Tuesday was a day on which everything went wrong. The alarm clock didn't go off. Janice was tenminutes late and forgot her first period homework at home. Oh, what a dark day! At last the lunch bell rang! ' "Jackie," she cried, on seeing her friend, "I surely am gladtc see' you," and with these words, she poured out her tale of woe. , "You think you have trouble," an- swered Jackie. "Mildred Williams did buy that palegblue wallet, but lost it again with all her graduation money in it. She says she doesn't know where she lost it, either. Isn't that tough?" ' "Yes, but her father will give her more." . , "No, he won't. He said she was spending too much money lately, what with the war and all, and re- fused to give her more money for anything! ' I "Was her wallet really light blue?" Yes, didn't you know? You hav- en't seen it, have you?" "Um-I' was just asking. Well, I have to go study my Latin. See you ,in Gym." "She didn't have to run off like that," thought Jackie. "After all, I've been dying to tell her Jerry finally Cl -'E-c-H-ofa-s . .:.'

Well, if she wants to be like that, all right." And with these angry thoughts, Jackie joined her -other friends. But Janice wasn't studying her Latin. She was walking on the campus. "I really don't have to give her the money. After all, she is sure to get the class ring. Why should she get two and me none? It isn't fair! She has always had everything. . "But what am I 'thinking of? I couldn't'keep the money. It wouldn't be honest. Everytime I looked at the ring, I'd think of how I got it. And suppose someone should find out! It's no use-I have to give back. I've know it all the time. Might as well take it to her now." And that is how Janice made Mil- dred, who was almost her enemy, the happiest girl in the school. Wednesday would have been just like any other day, except that Tom Walker met Janice on the way to school and finally asked her to go to the Prom. She could hardly wait to get to school to tell Jackie. At two o'clock the Senior Class meeting was drawing to a close. The last number on the program wasthe presentation of the class ring to the girl or' boy whom the class voted the best all-.around and most worthy to wear it. As Tom Walker, the class president, rose, an expectant hush fell over the class. "Graduation is only a few weeks away, and We haven't much time left to be together as students of Cen- tral High. Soon our books will be gone and in their place we shall hold many fond memories. Now, at this point of in- of the class any further. time, comes the high terestf-the awarding ring. Before We go let mel say that the secretary will take all orders from students for their rings. But one girl-yes, the honored one is a girl-will not have to place an order. This girl has been known for her friendliness, leader- ship, and likeable personality. 'Pm sure everyone agrees with me when I say 'Congratulations' to our Honor Girl, Janice Carter!" The rest was blurred to Janice. She was so stunned she could hardly think. "Imagine me, Janice Carter, the Honor Girl! Mother and Earl will be as thrilled as I am. Thank Goodness I returned that money. Thank Goodness for the Golden Rule!" . .ly ,- u ' o""f' Y " I 'Ha --is-.J -re: 4-1" 9 T .r:. 1 - v hifi " 1 " 'ir' '.

Virginia Reid, '46 NBUT Mother, I've told you," in- sisted Helen bitterly. "Yes, dear, 'I know," interrupted her mother, "but he's such a nice young gentleman and he's so polite. I just don't understand why you don't like him." At this point, Helen, red and an- gry, left the room, retorting, "I just won't have you living 'my life and making all my decisions for me, even though you may think you are do- ing the right thing!" 1 This hot argument all came about when Helen Donald arrived home after her day's work at Far- rand's Department Store. Her moth- er had just informed her that Mr. T. G. Farrand, III, about whom the argument had started, had phoned and asked if he might take Helen out that night. Mrs. Donald, seeing no harm in doingso, immediately consented, even though she knew her daughter strongly disliked Mr. Far- iand. Helen had long known. that young Tom Farrand was the spoiled, conceited grandson of the owner of the store. "But Helen, darling, he's to be here at eight o'clock," continued Mrs. Donald, following her up the stairs. "Now, Mother, I don't want to seem unreasonable, but that mane" she began. - "Darling, you've just got to go out with him tonight. I've promised." A "All right, Mother, all right. but hereafter please let- me make my own dates." "Yes, dear. Now you run upstairs and put on your prettiest frock and I'll have you a light snack when you're ready. You can eat and still be ready when he gets here. You know, I've a feeling he likes you more than you think. I do wish you could take a liking to him." Helen dressed ra-ther hastily and ate her snack, finishing just asthe doorbell rang. She heard her mother greeting Mr. Farrand and his "Good evening, Mrs. Donald." said in his usual smooth, though slightly conde- scending, manner. Once. more she wished she didnfti have to go with him, but just then he spotted her coming out of the , - Thirty-tbfee " " '15,-wifffg' N 541-Y:-W-ecami-,uimefg-"v -v eg- 111-Q 1 ul,'a-i1nr-.'.-'-..- '11.:e1j: .1--gwr,-f'-'ii' ., -- 2.1. zfagfaizf ' Mr- -. - -.:f1s.s'-in-Q-ea Lv.:-.is - I..--.b L31 s:.albqQf,gsgina2wfa.:: 3g,,,'g5g,,,- 'f,,'af,3g?3g5.l 4 . ff-'41 .,-v-', -1, , ..,,.,.,-,J ' "fri V 53115 . t gm. ,qflfiil , ' Ali .
