Just a week ago today at five forty-nine
o’clock, the world was shocked by the news
of the death of President Franklin Delano
Roosevelt who died of a hemorrhage.
He received severe criticism for many of
the projects which he undertook, but when one
considers how many of these measures have
been helpful to our country, the others are
Many of us ask, ‘Tsn’t it strange that at
such a time as this the Lord should take from
us such a brave, brilliant, and powerful per
sonality.” It may be, however, that the death
of Franklin Roosevelt will do more to unite
the world than any person or event could ever

SILO —“Full of Corn”
How To Date a C. H. H. S. Girl
(The following discourse has been written
after several months of hard, yet stimulating
research. The data here is not necessarily
correct or complete, and anyone obtaining
results or having experiences contrary to
what is found in this column should report
their findings immediately in the interests of
In dating a CHHS girl, one must first pick
his victim. He has two types of females to
pick from. First, there are those who like to
sit around and talk. And then there are the
ones who like to have some fun. As some
forgotten soul said, “Women are like street
cars. Never run after one, there’ll be another
along any minute.”
Now that you have the girl, the next thing
to figure out is just what to do on your date.
Most popular practice around Chapel Hill
is to go to Smith’s Cinema, more commonly
known as the Carolina Theatre. If you de
cide to do this it is advised that you see the
show in advance thereby familiarizing your
self with the critical points in it which you
may use to your advantage and also to ac
tually see the picture itself. Remember
whether you be a wolf or a gentleman, it is
always proper for you to sympathetically hold
your date’s hand (or to comfort her some
other way) during the more touching mo
ments of such a show as “Thirty Seconds
Over Carrboro” starring Cas Gobble (Chapel
Hill’s answer to Van Johnson).
If you decide to go elsewhere, we will not
attempt to advise you further because of the
lack of space and the fact that Miss Manci
is at present looking over our shoulder.
Once alone with your date, you must decide
on one of several approaches. First, there is
the Indirect or Military (Use of the word
“Military” does not signify an endorsement
of this approach by the War Department as
it does not endorse any approaches) Ap
proach. In this approach, the aggressor
(usually the boy) asks the victim if he or
she has heard about how Patton broke through
in Normandy. A negative answer immedi
ately brings on a demonstration with the
right arm representing the right flank ad
vancing and the left arm representing the
left flank advancing and so on . . . This should
never be tried on Army Brats or Navy Ju
niors as they are already familiar with this
strategy (Don’t we know it).
Other approaches such as the “I’ve always
wondered how your hair would look on top
of your head” or the “Do you mind if I park
my chewing-gum behind your ear” may be
used and will be found effective.
If you need a special approach for a spe
cial girl just be sure to call on us. We will be
glad to help you out. Just remember, if you
ever get in a situation where you don’t know
what to do, be sure to call us right up, and
we will be glad to come right over and help
you out with your problem.
