OLD h\Am ROW
Annie Sue Hoyle and Mildred Brackett
It is a fiinny thing what love
will rnake us do. We have been begg
ing Pearl Carpenter to let us read
one of those letters from Jim South-
ards that make her eyes sparkle so, but
we have never succeeded. However, when
she received a cablegram from him the other
day she proudly let all of us read it and
smile with her,
vVe are beginning to wonder what is tlie
matter- with the girls in Lawndale? Vfe must
be slipping for a nice-looking young man, Mr.
Odus Vi/hitworth has spent almost six weeks here in the heart of town and not once has
he been found dating any of our girls. However, he seems to be getting rather chummy
with Pauline Carpenter^ Mr. Ha.rt’s new secretary. We have been trying to ply Cupid
between two other nice, young people, namely Miss Carrie Lee Weaver and Mr. W. W.
Young, the Agriculture teacher at Piedmont but it seems that we need a little more co
operation from them.
Our hats are off to Howard V/ease for his high ambition in a nev; business career.
He has taken over the Soda Shop next door to the Rogers Theatre and doing right well
-'or liimself. Here is where all of the elite of Lav/ndale has been gathering for ”fun
n* food" before or after the show.
All of you remember the little guy that vjore his hair like Clyde R. Hoey or Tar-
san, don’t you? None other than Royle Champion, Well, his hair is just as short as
yours now, cause he had a great decision to make li/hether to sail on the sea of
inatrimony or the real sea and he decided on the latter, (We wonder if his father
didn’t think it was safer that way.) He has joined the Naval Air Corps and is stat
ioned at Jacksonville Fla, Howard V/ease gave him a grand send-off party the night be
fore he-left. All of his friends from Shelby were there and m?.ny of them from Lawn-
dr.le. After we saw Champ*s»g.f,, Jean Robinson, we didn’t bl?jne him for thinking
seriously of the matrl'Tionial sea, . . •
Everyone in tov/n has been craning their neck to get a good look at that nice,
tall, blonde-haired paratrooper that is in town... .Glenn V/illiams, Lib Bridges has
been the only one v/ho has been favored in his sight and lucky enough to sit beside
t'i.osQ boots, V*e thirlc she is doing o,k, sincfe that is the first girl that he has
dated from Lawndrle since ho has been here. (Wonder v/hat she lias ^t that we ain’t?
Cculd. it be that 6:30 perfume that makes her so pretty and smell so good?)
Miss Lorene Clay has joined the Nurse’s■ Cadet Corps at the Martin Memorial Hos
pital in Mt* Airy, N. C. Her sister, Louise, spent several days with her last week
'ind that explains why Tom Forney has been "Lindberghing" it around town. We were
really afraid that great romance had ended,
Lav/ndale hasn’-t been quite as dull since the'following persons have been seen
here on furlough: Robert Spurling, Jimmie Osborne, Andy Pritchard, Junior Ramsaur,
Robey Brackett, Broadus Beam, and Glenn V/illiams, as we have already mentioned,
Good-nigiit follcs, there goes G, V/, Clay, Jr, all dressed up in his uniform and
V7e have just got to sign off and go see him rnd listen to what he has 'to tell us.
