I guess I wasn't clear ...

Just run the file

pdflatex maryjane.tex

this is all that is needed to convert a latex file to a .pdf file ...

I personally make it a practice to run the file through latex each time I 
make a change or include more info ... hence the reason I said to run it 
through latex first ... but it isn't necessary.
