Congratulations from Honor Girl ' .
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.

'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
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!
And did you see -the way Glenn
kept Smith, the star player, guarded?
He couldn't do a thing to us, inter-
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
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-
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-
I'll meet you at the bench. Come

Janice turned and walked away,
puzzled. 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
, 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
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
, 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
She didn't have to run off like
that, thought Jackie. After all, I've
been dying to tell her Jerry finally

asked me to the Prom. 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
time, comes the high
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

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-

and asked if he might take Helen

no harm in doingso, immediately
