THE FORUM OF PUBLIC OPINON – Mar-Ken School Students:
•”Rules in a School are Necessary.” By June Ross
Rules in any type of school are most essential, and especially so in a Professional School. Talented children are too often accustomed to having their own way all of the time, regardless of others. If the students were allowed to chew gum, leave school whenever the notion entered their mind, or stay out of school at their convenience – –  why go to school at all? Without laws and the enforcement of these laws – – what sort of government would we have, what sort of school would we be attending?
•”Cheating; A Common Problem in Schools.” By June Ross
To participate in the art of cheating is to ruin one’s reputation and standing among friends and classmates. The truth about a cheater always comes out. A cheater cannot be a happy person because he finds himself unpopular and friendless. It is better to fail in a subject then to get the highest honor by cheating. Let us all be fair and square and have a clear conscience.
•The Gum Problem!  It’s always with us.
“It’s nice to chew, but it isn’t very lady-like.” – – Mary Davis
“It’s a grand idea – out of school.” – – Charline Barnard
“It should be done in private.” – – Miss Otto
“The chewer develops quite a stupid expression.” – – Jane Lockwood
“It ends up in the waste-basket.” – – June Ross
“You get a dirty look and usually an ‘F'” – – Dick Selzer
“It helps the student to think.” – – Florence Pepper
•JUNIOR CARNIVAL AN EVENT
Whoops, shouts, and laughter mingled with the loud, hoarse cries of the barker greeted the students of our school indicating that the Carnival Game booths, food booths, and fun concessions met the eye on all sides. Here was Buddy McCallister, barking for the “Kiss Booth” – – the kisses being Betty Hainey and June Ross. Hal Belter “barked” for the Carnival attracting visitors to Florence Halop’s “Raffle Surprise”, Kingston Deat’s “Raffle of a Xmas Tree”, Harvey Dack’s “Wheel of Fortune”, and Ray Sperry’s “Darts and Balloons”. Marilyn Gates watched the finances, while the other girls and boys helped with the food booths and such. Throwing-of-Rings formed another popular booth.
The students of the 11th Grade worked hard to make their affair a success, and according to attendance and cooperation, it was!

From the Mar-Ken 1940 Yearbook:
June Ross, comes to us straight from Boston. As you know, she is very small, but her personality more than makes up for that. She is quite an ice-skater – – and is very active in all sports. She hopes to become a famous actress, and to play “brat” parts. Oh June! How could you?
