Since shoes are rationed
these days it is rather hard for
\ us to find exactly the style ^d
I quality of slioes that we v.’ant.
( / Everyone now tries to buy the best''
instead of selecting them haphaz
ardly as we did ?;hen they were plent
iful, We just must tell you this
true shoe ’story. The other day one of our local girls
went to Shelby to get her some shoos, and after ^ing in
several stores she’heard the same thing, "Sorry lady we
just can*t fit ycu«'’ Then she, went in the last store and
after measuring her foot the clerk said, ”Lady I can only
fit you in a pair of WAC shoes,” She looked at him and
pair of WAX shoes wouldn*t last me no time,"
It seems that our name ”01d Maids'* is becoming more appropriate every day, V/e
used to be able to round up enough girls for hen parties. That was back in the days
when we had Betty Esker and Frances Cordell with us, and then Betty decided to become
Mrs, Jack Wilsoh,- We thought sure we v/ould haw Frances for awhile but Uovgim l&e
(Skeet) Ivester decided he wanted her and persuaded her to accept a diamond. They’re
not "hitched" yet but-it v;on*t be long nbvjim So, as we told you once before we still
have each other, ’ ,
Pfc, Jimmy ^Osborne -has been at home on furlough recently. He spent about a week
in New lork City and from what he tells us he had one more good time at the "Stage
Door Crjiteen" and other places. After he got back home he told us that he was contemr-
plating putting this lad in the'Shalby Daily Star, "Soldior-on furlough would like to
meet attractive blonde, single, vvith car," Oh why don*t we own a car?????!i!11
. Unlike most -of you wo have lots of free evening^ when we don*t feel like staying
at haae knitting. Therefore, quite frequently we catch the bus and ride dovm to Shelby
to see a movie. Some of the best ones we ha\»e seen lately are; "Hollywood Canteen",
"The Very Thought of You", ”1*11 Be Seeing You", "Frenchriin’s Creek", "Keys of the
Kint^'dom", "Her Lucky Night", "Tomorrow the V/orld", "To Have and Have Not", "Thirty
Seconds Over Tokyo", Starring in'these pictures'were some of our favorites, Dennis'
Morgan, Dane Clark, Joseph Cotton, Robert V/alkcr, Claudette Colbert/ Jennifer Jones,
Joan Fontaine, Arturo de Cordova, Gregory Peck, Andrews Sisters, "Skippy" Homeir, Betty
Field, Fredric March, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and VAN JOHNSON. Opening at the
Rogers Saturday night (March 1?) late show is "Winged Victory", That is a must on our
list,
•WeWe had one good laugh this month. That was a couple days ago when Mr, George
Hart, Sr, received the message that George, Jr, v/ould be at home in a fev; hours, Mr/
Hart dropped the telephone and jitterbugged all over his office. If he had had Pearl
•Southards* grass skirt,* we’re sure-he would have done the hula, (Vife bet Ens, W, V/,
Young could give him a few pointers after all of those dances he has seen in the
Paoific), This is Cieorge, Jr,'s first visit home in 21 months and all of his friends
are certainly glad to see hla again, •
