The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue
is from the Lord.—Proverbs 16-1.
’Tis grievous parting with good company.—George Eliot.
We have just completed the second great war in which the United States
was the dominant power in spelling defeat for those aggressive nations
which would seek to conquer the world. Each time we have asked for no
territorial gains or payment. Despite these facts, at the present time, our
government is meekly trying to satisfy and appease any demands made by
any other of the victorious nations. Even Prance, which was conquered by
the Axis powers in the early stages of the war and which was freed only
through our efforts, is making numerous selfish demands; and, what is more,
she is getting them.
All this is absurd. The United States is the strongest power in the
world today and is in a position to stand up for what she wants. However,
this may not be true always, and now is the time that we must stand up for
our desires against those of Russia and the other nations. Several good peace
plans have been devised by us which co-?rain nothing that Russia or any
other country should object to, while nearly all of the demands made by
Russia have been purely egotistical and selfish.
It is time for our government to “lay its cards on the table’’ and make
Russia back down or be sorry for not having done so. Our leaders must
stop being pacifists and start being men of fortitude, stability, and fearlessness.
Happy November! And if you’re not happy you will be after you look
at the pictures that are coming to the Auditorium Theatre. They are all
really Grade A in entertainment.
Coming on November 11 and 12 is “My Darling Clementine” from Twen
tieth Century Fox. This is an old-fashioned “hoss” opera, starring Heimy
Fonda, Linda Darnell, and Victor Mature. Fonda plays Wyatt Earp, marshal
of Tombstone, and has the lead in this story of how the frontier town was
brought under law and order by the Earp brothers. Mature plays “Doc’’
Holliday, a gambler, and Linda Darnell has the feminine lead in this picture.
Based on a book by Stuart Lake, “Clementine” was directed by John Ford,
who was won three Oscars for his directing.
“Margie” is coming. Yep, that cute little flapper of the ’20’s is coming
Thursday (Thanksgiving) and Friday, the 28 and 29. This cute technicolor
musical is brought to the screen by Twentieth Century Pox. In it are Jeanne
Crain, Glenn Langan and Lynn Bari. See this; it’s really grand.
Other good movies coming this month are: “Black Beauty,” “The Spiral
Staircase,” “Canyon Passage,” “If I’m Lucky,” “Thrill of Brazil,” “Make
Mine Music” and “Night and’ Day.”
SUE HOOPER AND TINKER ’WILLIAMS
Crisp weather, sunny days, falling leaves (to rake), and beautififi color
describe this lovely fall season and for Mr. and Miss L. H. S. this month
who could be a better choice than Sue Hooper and “Tinker” Williams,
pictured above? But let’s stop this idle chatter and get down to the facts
of this parable.
Sue Hooper is our Miss L. H. S. for this month. Sue is very attractive
with dark brown hair, big brown eyes, and a very pretty mouth.
She likes dill pickles, raisin pie, LEXHIPEP, gray Dodges, horses, cute
people, formal dances, potato chips (every time you see Sue, she has a bag of
potato chips), “Blues” songs, Revelon lipstick (how about it. Bill?) and sloppy
She has only two dislikes. They are onions and social climbers.
Sue’s college preference is William and Mary. Your selection is tops in
our opinion. Sue.
“Begin the Beguine” is her favorite song. We surely would like to hear
you sing it for us sometime. Sue, for we love to hear your dear, sweet voice
on any occasion.
When we asked Sue what her favorite pastime was, she replied, “Bill”.
What more could we ask?!?!
Sue is kept busy with other things besides Bill, for she’s in the Tri-Hi-Y,
Quill and Scroll, Beta Club, Etiquette Club, Cotillion Club, LEXHIPEP, and
she is a mighty good-looking majorette!!
Her ambition will have something to do with art, she said. Whatever
field of art you choose, we know you’ll succeed, because you have so much
talent. Loads of luck to you. Sue, from all of us!!
Paul Williams, better known as “Tinker’’, is our Mr. L. H. S. this month.
It W’as very difficult to get an interview with “Tinker,” so you can see he’s
a very busy boy. He is very handsome, also. He’s about six feet tall, has
brown hair and blue eyes and there is no limit to his brains; if you ever get
stuck on anything just call on “Tinker”.
He likes football (and is one of our very best players), Hi-Y, LEXICON,
a good argument (he’s really good at that), L. H. S. (don’t we all), hunting
and fishing. He also likes assembly programs, and eating and sleeping (he
does plenty of both).
He dislikes silly people, conceited people, and 3:30 classes; a very good
“Tinker’s” college preference is undecided, but you can certainly count
on his going to one of the best.
“Star Dust” tops his list of songs, but confidentially we thmk he’s very
fond of “Rhapsody in Blue”.
If you ever want to find “Tinker” after dark just go by the Green Door
and most likely, he’ll be there “shooting the bull” ’cause that’s his favorite
pastime along with sports.
It seems almost useless to name “Tinker’s” activities, for they are just
about all we have in school. He holds the position of treasurer of Hi-Y, past
president of Honor Society, president of Quill and Scroll, editor of the
LEXICON, and vice-president of the Senior Class.
You know it takes two good co-captains for a good football team, and
“Tinker” is one of our co-captains. Basketball comes next, and he’s also
tops on the tennis team.
We think that just about sums up Paul Williams. You can probably guess
what his ambition is by what we have told you. Well, it’s none other than
to be President of the United States, and if any one can do it, he can.
We are very fortunate in having two sweet students like Sue and “Tinker”
in Lexington High. It takes students like they are to make L. H. S. the best
school in the world.
