C. Norris, t.eggett Frazcr; Gilbert Arnold, early English writer, said it means goddess of Spring, Eostre. Others say it came from an old heathen festival of Eostur, in honor of the Spring sun. The old custom of giving eggs at Easter can be traced back to the Egyptians, among whom an cfii; was an emblem of the universe. The custom o! dyeing the eggs comes from several d i f - ferent origins. In the festival of the Solar 'New Year colored eggs were given. The Persians also gave colord eggs at the Feast o! the New Year. Eggs are given and used in games on Easter at the present time in such countries as Italy, Russia, and Mesopotamia. From a combination of all the customs in using eggs the Americans have received this custom. We in America give and receive eggs at Easter like it has been done all over the world for many centuries. Another gift that has an ancient origin is the Easter bunny. Bunnies are quite as popular for gifts as the eggs. The egg and bunny, plus the Easter lily, are the three great symbols that are seen on every side at Easter. And thus it is around the world, with high and low, Easter is a day of joy.

Toleration Discussed ; By Father Maloy "When it's time to fight for our country, there's no intolerance," said Father Edward Maloy in convocation April 2. "When it's time to die, there's no intolerance. Wars among nations nre nothing but wars of intolerance." Father Maloy, pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Church, discussed "Toleration" as la common American fault. He said that people were not born intolerant and that they remain tolerant until they hear their parents or other adulls talk about someone who is "different"--and their intolerance begins. Father Maloy stated that all of us are alike deep down inside and are alike also in the image of God. Part of the FHS creed, "We should be good citizens and true sports, whcthec in the classroom or on the athletic field" reminded Rather Maloy that he believes being a good citizen is a full-time job. In closing, Father Maloy made a statement he said was well worth remembering: we all look the same way, wp act the same way, and we will die the same way. tors; Traffic Squad; Student Secretary; Athletics; Student Athletic Managers; Cafeteria Service; Typing Service; Flag Monitors; Teachers Service; Office Service; Band Librtritn «nd Secretary; Student Accompanist; Projection Service; Public Address Service; Photographer; and R e c o r d e r Services. .
