heading for an ostensible "Wash

Inevitably, although more ami
ably, they took up their usual
quarrel which both enjoyed more
than either cared to admit. Sudden
ly Tony jammed on the brakes. So
engrossed had he become in their
spirited discussion of sharing the
wealth that he had failed to notice
a man standing in the road; a driv
er s sixth-sense pulled him up,
rather than the hitchhiker's jerk
ing thumb of interrogation. As the
bus rumbled to a stop, both Tony
and Uinger spoke as one.
"Ah the Admiral's barge!" ex
claimed the nautical Mr. Briggs.
They had not seen him since the
night before last. ...
His yatching cap was still tilted
at a rakish angle, and as he swayed
on his land-legs it could be seen
that he was as drunk as ever if
not more so. The jug which he
had been carrying when they first
saw him, was still in his hand,
"He's still plastered!" said Tony,
grinning. "And hasn't finished his
jug yet unless it's re-filled."
"That's not a jug!" cried Ginger.
"It's Gertrude! Open the door,
Tony opened the door and, as
Briggs climbed aboard, he saw that
the nautical hitchhiker, in truth,
carried Desdemona Love's portable
goldfish bowl in his left hand. This
he set down on the nearest seat,
with great care, then found the
seat he had been originally occu
pying, and fumbled around, under
neath "What are you looking for?"
"Where did you get Gertrude?"
Mr. Briggs grinned owlishly at
them both, as he drew his brown
jug from under the seat, and patted
it affectionately with relief.
"Here it is," said Mr. Briggs. "I
took the fishbowl by mistake. Im
agine my surprise when I almost
swallowed the fish."
"Did you" asked Ginger, anxious
ly, with a glance at the bowl. A
glimpse of Gertrude reassured her.
"Of course not," said Mr. Briggs,
severely, "I never take shea-food
when I'm drinking."
"Where did you disappear to?"
"I've been trying to find my boat.
Have you sheen it? Itsh white, with
black funnels named the Little
Casino." He lovingly uncorked the
jug. "Have a libation?"
Without waiting for a reply, he
tilted the jug and drank deeply.
Ihen delicately wiped his lips.
"Perhapsh I never told you," said
Mr. Briggs, pensively. "But I'm an
So's Gertrude, now," said Tony,
putting the bus into high again;
And grinned at Ginger.
"Thash too bad,'; said Mr. Briggs.
and yawned. "If you sight my ship
off the starboard bow, wake roe up."
He closed his eyes, and gently fell
asleep. ... :
Tony and Ginger looked at each
other and laughed,
"Do you suppose he really has a
"Planning to marry him when
you've divorced me?" chuckled
Tony. "That drunk is lucky if he
owns a row boat. I wonder if his
sanitarium knows he's gone."
"Anyway, I'm glad he brought
Gertrude back," said Ginger.
Casanova, watching the tropical
fish from his usual seat across the
aisle, wag also glad. Gertrude, un
easily aware of the Thomas-cat's
unblinking feline regard, was not
so sure. Casanova yawned, dis
playing his teeth, and Gertrude was
suddenly certain. For through the
distortion of her glass-walled home,
Casanova suddenly reminded Ger
trude of nothing so much as a
dreaded Belonesox belizanus, the
sharp-toothed, ferocious tropical
fish that feeds on live fish the
gangster of the aquarium family.
Gertrude, sudden remembering
her marital : sins, wished she were

road with a pie-eyed hitchicker.

Friends, Parents, Teachers and
Tonight marks a milestone in
our lives. It represents the cli
max of eleven years of opportuni
ties, some of which we have made
the most of, and others, I regret to
say, we have let slip by unnoticed.
So as I bid you welcome tonight,
it is not for our program alone,
but for all our school years gone
by, that have made this occasion
I bid you welcome in the name
of these years we have studied to
gether in the Waynesville town
ship schools. I bid you welcome
in the name of the friendships we
have formed during these years.
I bid you welcome in behalf of the
patience, the interest, and the
consideration that our teachers
Nurse Lillian Boyle holds the two sets of twins born in New York and
whose parents promptly named them after America's hero, Gen.
Douglas MacArthur. Left t right: Marguerite MacArthur Campagna,
and Marianne MacArthur Campagna; Michael Douglas MacArthui
Frusci and Gerard Douglas MacArthur Frusci. The infants sport the
MacArthur button, too. Central Tress)
have shown us as they have taught
and guided us in our studies and
in our daily lives.
I bid you welcome in behalf of
the homes from which we have
come, and of the hopes and ambi
tions of our parents and the sac
rifices they have made for us. All
these things have entered into this
climax of our lives tonight and
are a part of our program.
It is natural that we look for
ward to this our last program in
the Waynesville Township High
School, to also look backward. We
want you to , share with us our
memories Of all our school days,
as well as our hopes of association
in your larger world of affairs,
which we will shortly enter.
We trust that you will enjoy our
program tonight and that our rec
ord will give you some sense of
pride in the fact that we represent
your school, and we trust we do
not fall too far short of your ex
pectations. ; :
Since our country is now at
war we have all had a more ser
ious outlook on life, for we high
school students realise thut we
will have to do our part. This
has a bright side too, for it makes
us feel that we can lead useful
lives and that we will find welcome
for us as we step out of the school
room. There is something about the
war today that seems to bring
people closer together, and we
realise that we Americans, both
young and old, will have to work
together to keep our country safe.
Tonight we play our last part
on the stage of the Waynesville
Township High School, and as we
bid you welcome we hope we find
response in your hearts, for we
high school graduates are going to
need you. We will need your
friendship and faith to help us
In behalf of the class of 1942
of the Waynesville Township High
School, it is with sincere pleasure
that I bid you welcome.
