THE SANDSPUR EDITORIALS HERE AND THERE No doubt you’ve already been approached by Bob Hazard or another of Mr. Crawford’s super salesmen to buy a ticket to their production of “Outward Bound.” If you are a vet or anybody else for that matt^ you were probably broke and merely promised to buy one. Thats OK^but don’t forget to do it. Checks should be in by now so let’s buy a ticket and see a really fine serious play. To the family of Ray Owens, our most sincere ex pressions of sympathy in their time of bereavement. We have gotten the word that Mr. Martin, Business Manager of P. J. C., celebrated his birthday on Monday, March 28. Let us take this opportunity to wish Mr. Mar tin a very happy birthday, and many more to come. By the way, Mr. Martin, how many candles were on that cake ? Let’s let a word to you wise sophomores be sufficient —Although senior colleges are not as crowded now as they were right after the war, they still have plenty of students to keep them busy; so if you’re planning to send in an application, you’d best hurry up. We have noticed that since the last issue of the “Sandspur’’ the unsightly garbabe cans have been moved into the kitchen of the chow hall. That really improves the looks of the place and Mrs. McCallum is to be congrat ulated. While we’re passing out orchids we might send “Rock” Rogers a few for the fine job of re-painting the rec’ room he did. It sure brightens up the place. A little bord tol’ us one student at P. J. C., Hugh Russel, and one Betty Jean Watson of the fair city of Maxton got themselves engaged^ last Saturday, March 26. No diate has been set as yet for the wedding, so let’s just fcay, congrates, Hugh and Jean—may you live happily ever after.
