Schools Closed
Both Wakelon and Zebulon-
Wakefield school for Negroes were
closed for Monday and Tuesday of
this week to allow time for the
school buses to be repaired and j
tested. The unusual condition of,
roads has helped make necessary
this step, although Wakelon was j
probably in better shape to continue
work than for some time. The in
creasing number of accidents to
school buses has caused public at-;
lention to be focused upon this ;
phase of the transportation prob
lem. Supt Lo.khart was most like
ly right when he chose delay in
preference to possible rei ret.
School work was resumed on I
Wednesday. Most of the teachers
from out of town went to their \
homes for the vacation of four
days including the weekend.

to make its case. He was accused
of making an assault on some one
with a deadly weapon.

The Swashbuckler has a slight
touch of spring fever this week and
is letting two college gels lead his
column astray with clipped bits
from here and there.
A girl can sing,
A girl can dance,
A girl can play crokay;
But she can’t strike a match
On the seat of her pants,
’Cause she ain’t built fnat way.
Most of us aren’t troubled with
improper thoughts, in fact, we
rather enjoy them.
She—Gutting real cold, isn’t it?
He—(Poetically) Ah, Winter
draws on—
She—Sir!
There was a young fellow named
Davey,
Who enlisted himself in the navy;
He was fed such tough steak,
That it made his side ache,
So he soon found a watery gravy.
I’m the Tac in Tacoma.
I’m the San in San Francisco.
Who re you ?
I’m from Asfuria.
Marriage is an institution.
Marriage is love.
Love is blind.
1 herefore, Marriage is an Insti
tution for the ITlind.
How did that get in here? y
I sneezed a sneeze into the air;
It fell to ground I knew not where;
But hard and cold were the looks
of those
Into whose faces I snoze.
My boy friend likes to see me drink
More than a little bit,
Because I’m his flame, I guess,
He wants to keep me lit.
Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Drinking a pousse case.
Along came a spider
And sat down besider
And drank wilh Miss Muffet all
day.
Johnnie killed his little sister,
She was dead before they mister,
Johnnie’s always up to tricks,
Ain’t he cute, he’s only six.
Wh&t is this, Duffel Bag?
Hey mister! Your engine's
smoking.
Well, it’s old enough.
Bachelor girls live and yearn.
Newest swing tune-— " They’re
hanging Dannie Deaver in tfi*
morning.”
Keeping a stiff upper lip r
be all right, but it's lots more
kissing a limber one!
Well, I’m glad that’s over.
Youra,
The Swashbuckler. WSI
