Stars a livin* wo just don’t have any
idea how to bef>;in this piece for this i-r-'' "1
month. Last month we gave you the low ///// //JJJJi)
down Oil who everyone was dating and did '
we have coals of fire heaped on our heads,.
We have just one thing to say to this—They shouldn*t have
strayed if they didn't want it laiown. Even the least of secrets find their v;ay
to such old deaf ears as ours .,.
So to try to square things off with all we are going to give you the low down on
ourselves: Tl^e other ni^-ht three of us old maids v;ent to Shelby on Hunt's bus and
wo got so desperate that when three good'-looking young gentlemen got on we each
yanked one and made them sit right dovm beside us. All of this v/as against the
young men's will of course.
And that isn't all either. Our "Perennial Old Maid" (Miss Til Miller) came in the
other morning bragging about her new-found boy friend that she had picked up that
morning coming to work. The funny paiii of it was that she had to lock the door
to keep him from jumping out. He tried to open the door one time and get out but
Tillie grabbed him hy the arm ^jnd yanked him back in. She locked the door that
time and brought him on to Lawnda3.e. Vfe hear that this said boy now refuses all
rides if there is a xvoman at the wheel.
Boy did we really spread on the dog the other day vfhen in came rolling G. Vf. Clay,
Jr., Homer Eskridge, Charles Crjrpenter. The tiling that breaks our heart is tho.t
Charles has finally decidcd to settle dovm and be true to his girl rJ.though we
cannot figure out v;hich or ;;hat for>4ae v/as knov/n to talie lessons in music, in
business, in beauty culture, and even in farming T;hilo here. The minute ho hit
Lavmdale he v/ent up and had his hair v;aved or v;as it just frazzled.
We feel proud of Miss Katherine Elam v;ho lives in the suburbs of Lavmdale for
nuJcUir (L-i’ducr V’eol' 3-...].logo.. that sho hc.s boerx cle-.vbed
May Queen. We alv;ays did think Kat v/as good looking but you really gotta fix up
to beat the looks of some of the young married v;omen arotind here whose husbrjids
are in the service. Some of those attractive young women are Mrs. Dorothy L^e,
Mrs. Evelyn Carter, rjid IIrs. Inez Herd.
The scng "I'm Saving Myself for Bill" has been very popular rjound here. Hovraver,
Bulah Lane has changed it to Charles Cloning-er, Bonita Fortenberry to V/ard Lov/e,
Bebe Richard to Andy Pritchard, ?->jid Mary Cloninger to Bill lynn, Doris Blanton
is undecided v/hether to sing it v/ith Cpl. Ruhcrt B?irney or Buren Horn, or Hovjard
V/oasu or just YJHO. Wc think John V/easd has chojiged his tune from Lenoir Rhyne to
South De Kalb street in Shelby,
We old maids are singing to the tunc of "IVe Don't Get Around Much Any More" so
naturally vjc don't know rny nev;s.
Til, Anne, & Lib.
