his travels about the state delights
in charming the guests at talk

porch overlooking the beach or in
the mountains around the lire. Hill
Sharpe can spin a merry tale, with
now and then a note of pathos
which might draw a tear from the
faint-hearted. Where reality does
not go the distance necessary.
Sharpe can draw on his fertile
imagination and it's just as much
fun cither way. or so they say.
Some time back, he was sitting

OKEH One of the brightest and
most prominent young women in
North Carolina will become a
missus on December 22. Yep, that's
when Miss Doris Goerch, daughter
of Carl Goerch, marries Harry P.
Horton, adopted son of former
Lieutenant Governor W. P. Horton
and the late Mrs. Horton of Pitts
boro. And so once again two out
standing North Carolina families
join up. It happens right along.
Carl probably won't admit it, but
Doris does most of the work on

Now if we can just get National
Committeeman Horton to run for

POST-SEASON As you know.
Wake Forest College is badly in
need of money for a post-war pro
gram of expansion. And all good
Baptists are working to help this
deserving school Some time back
one of the well-wishers suggested
that the Deacons play a post-season
game with some worthwhile team
i possibly Georgia Tech) here in
North Carolina and use the pro
ceeds above expenses for the drive.
Too, the game would advertise the
expansion program on every sports
page in the country, it was point
ed out. Such a contest would also
serve to make tighter the link be
tween the sports department and
the academic division, and it would
permit the football boys to feel
that they had contributed in a
material way to the Wake Forest
of the Future.
The idea was turned down flatly
by Coach Peahead Walker. He said
the last Wake game would come
around December 1 and there
wouldn't be time to schedule the
bowl event, adding that , the ex
penses might not leave much for
the expansion drive. Thurman D.
Kitchen, president, also gave
thumbs down on the proposal, giv
ing the reason that those who paid
to see the game might feel they
had made their contribution and
would not help on the drive itself
so that was that.
