A Bad Name?
Last Tuesday in assembly C. H. H. S. stu
dents were told that tickets which for sev
eral years have been available through the
Playmakers at half price, would be canceled
because of misconduct.
It started us asking questions about the
source of this information and about the
true basis for this accusation. The high
school has had black marks on its conduct
record in the past, but the best reasons ad
vanced have given small justification for the
It is true that at University pep rallies
paper airplanes and toilet paper have been
thrown, but so far as the staff has been able
to investigate, no evidence of misconduct at
Gilbert and Sullivan productions has been
We hope that if C. H. H. S. students are
responsible,, they will remember that the
whole school suffers for their misconduct;
however, we feel that we are due a more
complete explanation from the authorities
concerned with dispensing the tickets before
so drastic a step is taken.

THE LATEST NEWS:
Flash—It has just been announced that the
leading columns of Field Marshal von Vith-
thevind’s powerful army have smashed
through the V-12 defenses west of Carrboro,
N. C., and are now rolling unmolested into
the strategic road junction of Chapel Hill,
N. C. Only a miracle or Ernie Pyle can save
that town now.
Flash—V-12 headquarters in Chapel Hill,
N. C., the strategic road junction at which
the invading forces are aiming their spear
heads, announced late today that the advanc
ing enemy forces have been stopped between
the stop-light and the Carolina Theatre. A
great battle is being waged at this point al
though it cannot be determined at this time
whether or not this action is being caused
by the heavy V-12 resistance or by the crowd
trying to get into the midnight show.
Farther down the street an even fiercer
battle is raging between the men of the
Wildcat Division under the command of Gen
eral Dwight “Little Ike’’ Wright, trapped in
the Cone House, and a large body of enemy
soldiers. The enemy at eleven yesterday
asked General Wright to surrender, but were
met by the reply of “Go to Razzberries.”
House-to-house fighting has been going on
throughout the town for the past day and
night, especially in the vicinity of the Var
sity, a place which has changed hands sev
eral times in the past few hours. At present
the soda fountain is reported in enemy hands
because the V-12 forces defending it were
forced to retire earlier in the day when the
supply of Pepsi-Cola ran out.
Enemy losses until noon today have been
very high. Accounting for many of these
casualties were the number of invaders who
were put out of commission by the booby-
traps in Sutton’s.
Much credit for bringing the enemy armies
to a standstill is due to the well-known V-12
agent, Mrs. Mati-Hari Lawson.
Across the battlefield from town, an in
vading column attempted to outflank the
Pre-Flight School with the surprise attack
through Kenan Stadium. The advance was
discovered in time and Pre-Flight forces put
up a terrific goal-line stand, digging in on
the five-yard line. Four times the enemy
attacked and four times the Junior Birdmen,
under the command of General “Go-Get-’Em”
Gleasner, rose up to stop them before taking
the initiative. Another enemy attack de
veloped south of the Med Building. All avail
able manpower, including the stiffs in the
basement (representing the 4th, 5th, and
8th corpses) were thrown into the fray in an
attempt to stop this enemy thrust. At last
word the situation was extremely critical.

you know that your Osse comes from a hole

Due to the lack of entertainment after
those (hmmm-mmm) exams, we flipped
through our telephone directory and our
mysterious instincts got the best of us.
Here’s hoping this drives you crazy!
We noticed that 5581 got left on the Efland
trip, which completely changed 3151’s plans
for the evening.
It seems that both F-3101’s, Cotton and
J. D., got a little irritated at the many fac
tors which disturbed them coming back from
Efland, mainly the bumpy road and Johnny’s
7706 waves faithfully at 7326 every morn

We suggest to the freshman girls that
after this they go along to protect their in
terests in 7621. Seems those Efland girls
thought he was “just precious.”
8516 and Preston have been seen here and
there lately. ’Nuff said!
We noticed that 4946 couldn’t seem to
make up her mind between 5976 and F-2806
at Efland Tuesday night. Ain’t women
fickle ? ?
We just discovered a new couple we want
to get together . . . 5891 and 4941. (Betcha
can’t find this one.)
We haven’t been hearing from 8831 lately

give you a tumble ? ? ?
Heck, this is driving us NUTS!!
