SWEATERS AND FEET
VEX PICTURE POSERS
Here we sit before you smiling
but what did these—smiles cost us?
N'ot so much as you would suppose,
for we had another audience besides
you (the first time), dear readers.
E\erything, it is said, has its ad
vantages and disadvantages, and I
know this to be true in this case (of
the first pictures). Although
we didn’t have to sit and wait for
the sun to make just the right angle,
as they did last year, we certainly
had pouring down rain Avhich didn’t
agree so well with the girls’ curls
which had been twisted up the night
It s strange that so many things
can happen just before a j^icture is
to be made. Shirley began ‘‘hic-
cuping • it seemed as if she wasn’t
going to stop. Mary Graham patted
her cheeks vigorously to make them
rosy. While both of them rolled
down their hose to make anklets,
Adell trotted home and secured her
self a pair.
As we began to pose a crowd be
gan to gather, consisting of Mr.
Johnson, Miss Roark, William Dees,
Maurice Edwards, Willis Denmark,
and ‘Wimpy,” of course Miss Kor-
negay and Mr. Clement were there
too. So Isabell pops up and says,
‘.‘If we charge them all a quarter,
we’ll have enough to pay for our
picture. ’ I didn’t see this in action
