ADVICE FOR THE LONELY HEART
My Mother always goes with
me on my dates. She is a good
dancer and the life of the party,
but I feel kinda funny kissing my
boy friends good night when she
is standing there watching. What
shall I do about this mess?
Well it seems to me that you
have quite a problem on your
hands. But here is what I woUld
do. The next time you have a
\ date invite some young man of
your mother’s age over and when
they get to know each other
pther well, slip out the back
r and she won’t miss you, 1
ly boy friend wants me to
him every night. My prob-
is that I go to school and
when I date on school nights my
home work goes sadly lacking.
What shall I do?
If your boy friends is the right
sort of fellow he will understand.
It seems to me that three woo
sessions a week would be enough
I am a very handsome and
dashing yoxmg man. For some
reason everyone calls me B. M.
O. C. Now my problem is that
neqrly all the girls want to date
How can I fight them off?
B. M. O. C. ^
Here is my solution to your
problem. Date each one time and
if my guess is right you won’t
have any. more trouble out of
these same girls.

MY LIFE STORY
(By Gilbert Furgurson)
The title of this article may be
a bit misleading. It should be—
“Who is the world’s biggest jerk
and how did I get that way?” In
the first place, I was born (that’s
logical—but impractical). My
first memories consist of a talk
between my mother and father.
My father pointed at me and
asked my mother whether they
should bury it, send it to Ripley,
or let the cat drag it back out
(the cat refused). I was a very
lucky child—I was born with a
Yo-yo in my mouth.
As the years went by, I grew—
but not much. In fact, mj' little
brother grew so much faster than
I, he was twenty-one when I was
It was in the third grade (my
home for eight years) that I was
destined to become an outcast—
my coat and pants matched. After
years of hard labor, I have finally
built up the reputation I have to
day. Yes sir, I am the only person
in High Point high school that
can shoot all my spit-balls with
a genuine rubber band.

Have you ever sat and listened
to the different noises and like
wise watched the expressions on
other peoples faces?
While sitting in the library the
library the other day I tried it—
turned out to be very interesting.
A very lovely girl who looked
as if she had just lost her last
friend opened the hall door, look
ed around for a minute as if she
didn’t want Miss Capel to catch
her there, then went hurriedly
into the library office leaving the
scraping sound of her scandals a
thing of the past.
Ah! Over there sits Betty Con-
der gazing lazily out the window
—Oh! well, last night was Sunday
ngiht so she probably has memo
ries to cherish! Gosh! What has
happened to “Dot” Turner? I’ve
never seen her so excited—^Who
is the boy, anyway? “Dimk” is
what you might call not bad, eh,
Holy mackeral—“Dub” Benson
looks as if he had just won a mil
lion dollars—But I guess it’s only
that note he just received from
There sits Bill Sizemore just in
side the study hall—Boy! Does
he look in the dumps—I guess he
hasn’t got over a certain girl say
ing “Kiss me my fool, Nothing
makes me sick,” on his recent re
quest of a kiss.
Soimds interesting doesn’t it?
Try it sometime.
AFTER BIG SPLASH
Fighting in a terrible gruesome
battle, two jerks by the names of
I. B. Cracked and the “Purplp
Yellowjacket”, fell to their death
off the Brooklyn bridge. An in
nocent bystander who helped me
with a little shove said this mas
sacre was over a genuine Duncan
Yo-Yo. I. M. Cracked was a
prominent Wall Street wolf who
made a fortune out of making all
the red cents that people don’t
get. “The Purple Yellowjacket”
was the toughest, meanest crook
in the world whose hobby was
collecting wildflowers. He was
the only man in the universe to
operate five Yo-Yos at one time.
He was arrested once for hoard
ing Yo-Yo strings. These are
vital in national defense. They
are one reason MacArthur is so
successful in his campaigns and
the main way he saves ammuni
tion. The reason is logical. 'When
MacArthur wants to fire a gun,
he just puts a Yo-Yo string on
the shell and after it has done its
destruction, it returns, saving
enormous amounts of ammuni
tion. Anyway, those morons who
fell off the Brooklyn bridge might
have beei graved if Garbage
Scow No. eiiadn’t been passing
under the bridge at the time.
In the picture above, Byron Grandjean, clad in a blue summer
gabardine suit from Wright’s, and sports shirt from the same store,
shows Violet Yokely a pair of tan and white Nunn-Bush and
Edgerton shoes from the Quality Shoe Store. Violet is attractive in
a lovely cotton dress, which sells for only $7.95 at the Holly Shop,
and a pair of white Rythm-Step sports shoes from the Quality Shoe
Store. She holds a pair of brown and white Rythm Step spectator
pumps, also from the Quality Shoe Store.
