Molly Hardy becomes Sussex Academy's newest student and immediately makes a splash by allowing a family heirloom, the ruby the King John wore when he signed the Magna Carta, to be displayed at the school. She joins Alecia's ticket to run for student counsel vice-president and other candidates drop out of the race due to a series of "accidents" making Molly the only viable choice for President. When the ring is stolen from it's display case, Shirley suspects Molly engineered to theft to gain sympathy and become a hero by framing another student for the "theft". Written by

Eight hundred years ago, King John wore this ring at the signing of the Magna Carta. Today we are priviledged to have this symbol of democracy on loan to us thanks to a new member of our student body, Molly Hardy.
