VICTOR CMemberP Jf Wl92lj News and Views Gathered From Here and There Junior girls are wondering what charm it takes to get the number of dates Helen Edling has, and how she keeps her telephone line so busy. (Just try getting any-thing but the busy signal on her number.) . Don "God's Gift to Women" Brewer has dated Marian Wilson for the Barn Dance. Marian had better keep her eyes open for that wolfess pack at South, or she is liable to find a knife in her back. The Ted Elders-Margen- e Poul-so- n combination is still going strong. What's their secret for avoiding quarrels? Or are they a normal couple? Why is it that whenever Ralph Blunt is absent, Miss Mandell asks Helen Hunt as to his where-abouts? Someone should tell Bob Story that Girls' Masquerades are for girls only. (Even if Margie is there, Bob.) One of the amazing sights at South: Doug Penman reading "College Physics." South's ideal couple: Keith Gustaveson and Pat Zwick. Finding a certain boy seems to have altered Lorraine Chattelain's plans of becoming a doctor. Well, Lorraine, who is he? Barbara Birkeland has plenty on her mind these days. She was chosen for one of the leading parts in the school play, and also star-red in another play, which must give three performances the same week. Barbara, you'd better keep Bud off your mind, or you will have a tough time of it! In case you're wondering what's making gym so interesting for Miss Walker's 5th and 6th period classes, you might take a look at Miss McAnelly, who is training to become a teacher. MY! Wouldn't the boys like this kind of inspira-tion in their gym? Betty Jane Jelte certainly knows how to handle the pillows when it comes to costuming, doesn't she? Mothers and daugh-ters laughed to the point of hys-terics at her antics in the skit of reducing put on by a gym class. Could it be that Shirley !Lem-mo- n is the cause of Don Leonard's tardiness each morning? Junior Olive Woodbury and Charles Greenland have been seen together at games, dances, and shows lately. What does it mean, Charles? "How Sweet You Are" as a "Sleepy Time Gal" in your polka dot pajamas, Miss AValker. You wowed the girls at the Masquer-ade. (Even if you did want blue.) fkfm If Combining the Virginia Reel with the East Drag, Southerners and their partners, all dressed like "Barnivalers" will frolic at the Barn Dance Friday night. -- Carol Lundgren, with escort Wally Jones, will wear levis and a red and black plaid shirt. Dorothy Sherrod, in levis and a levi jacket, will be taken by Joe Carstensen. Levis and a blue, red, yellow and green plaid shirt make up the apparel of Betty DeGoyer, who is going with Frank Zumwalt. Kath-leen Keata will be seen with Dick Nation wearing levis and a red, white and blue plaid shirt. Pat Reiser with Dee Morgan, will wear levis and a red and black plaid shirt. Levis and a red plaid shirt will be worn by Donna Elg, who is going with John Hansen. Barbara White will be sportin' overalls the bib kind and her partner will be Dean Meach-am- . Darlene Snarr is going with Neal Adams, and she will wear levis and a plaid shirt. Marge Taylor and Bab Story will be wearing levis, plaid shirts and levi jackets alike. On the feminine side, we have Norma Weight and Sue McCarrel wearing white pinafores, brown shirts and white blouses. Their escorts will be Don Solomon and Elgin Rigby from Davis. Barbara Morris, with Frank Landvatter, will be wearing a pink pinafore. Shirley Walgren in an extra long, dark blue plaid shirt and levis, will have as her partner Dick Wooley. Getting away from the Barn Dance, we look at current fashions. Sloppy sweaters and skirts are as popular as ever. Adelaide Jarvis is the envy of all the gals in her turquoise sweater, ten sizes too large. Beverly Pullan and Loretta Manchuso make a striking, two-som- e in their blue ed sweaters, worn with white jewelry neckline blouses and blue skirts. A green and white snow-dro- p pattern is featured in Irene Faulkner's ski-sweat- worn with a beige skirt. Glenna Goodliffe wears a navy blue cardigan, which she counter-matche- s with a multi-colore- d plaid skirt. Shirley Smith, South's representative to the College Board, chooses a light brown sweater and skirt worn with a white dickey. Round-necke- d blouses also are favorites of Cub-ette- s. May Belle Coleman likes her white one, that has pleats and a pert bow. Bright red is chosen by Inez Brimley, and it is just exactly the right shade to set off her lovely skin, while Kathleen Odham casts her vote for a beige one, which she wears with a chocolate brown suit. Girls' Conversation Attracts Attention Of Cub Scribblers Football games are attended by many people. Many of them are girls, which are very essential to the games. They boost the morale of the players, and also make the cheers sound more en-thusiastic. Girls' conversations are almost as interesting as the game. According to many Cubettes, boys talk about the silliest things technicalities, fullbacks, half-backs, frontbacks (whoops). But what do the girls do and talk about at the football games? Do they mention fullbacks, half-backs, etc? No. Do they get ex-cited about technicalities? No. "Good night!" some of the boys will exclaim, "What do they talk about?" It's rather hard to explain, so here is a word by word descrip-tion. "Helen," said a little blond jun-ior, "did you see that perfectly perfect speciman of manhood that just sat down. It's Jack Green. Isn't he darling?" Helen looked around. "Where? I can't see him." "Right over there by Ralph Py-per- ." "Ohhhhhh! Isn't he just too, too hey! What's happening? Everyone's standing up!" "A touchdown, I guess. Hurry, get up!" "Okay yea, South!" "Sit down, stupid. West made the touchdown, not us!" The senior girls follow the game better than do the juniors. The following is a typical conversation. "You know, Jean, I've been to almost every game this year and last, and I still think the players look like gorillas in those funny uniforms." "Silly, don't you know what the padding is for? It's to make 'em look husky. They're really quite scrawny." "Oh, is that it? Say, aren't the cheer leaders cute this year? I love the way Dick Weggeland wiggles his hands when he leads the cheering." "Yes, that is cute, and don't Eugene Sorenson and Gordon Des-pan- e look darling in their uni-forms?" So you know what girls talk about at football games. Of course, it would be nice if only the girls from East and West talked about these things, and that the girls from South concen-trated on the game, but we must be truthful. If you disapprove of such goings on, just dial 83 or and ask the W.A.H.O.F. Club (Why's and Hows of Foot-ball) to get some girls to instruct. Do You Know Me? "I am one of those ignoramuses who go to football games to make others miserable. "You've seen me ! ! I take delight in push-ing people off their seats, and rubbing their noses in the dirt under the bleachers. "The game holds no interest for me, I'd much rather steal the hair ribbons and keys from the girls in front of me. This is a smart thing to do and makes her look at me. "You know me!! I can't play football in the game, so I always show off by participat-ing in 'gang fights' during the half so people will know that I am strong and tough. T'm not good looking, so I have to gain the attention of the girls by swearing and yell-ing 'Kill the,dirty referee!' "My biggest trouble is that the most beau-tiful girls are engrossed in the football game, and either pay no attention to me or brush me off like a hair on their spotless shoul--. ders." L. C. CONTEST BETWEEN SHAG AND SAM BRINGS ON POETRY PURE HAM Sam says, "The girls are one big brag, "They say they've got talent, don't you, Shag? And Shag replies in a feminine voice, "The girls have you beat, admit it, boys." To prove to the school which has the most A contest is held to show up one boast. Which one shall conquer? Which one shall beat? Which one shall sweep the other off its feet? Reps, must hand their lists in now. The running will be close and how! Male or female? Sam or Shag? Which one will beat the other's brag? That's My Opinion It is my opinion that the order in assemblies should be improved. Most students come into the auditorium making noise and continue to do so for five or ten min-utes after the tardy bell has rung. " An assembly is considered as a class in respect to order and attention. Therefore, it is only right to be quiet. Because of the late start caused by waiting for order, the length of the assembly has to be cut. Every number is timed, so that the program will take exactly fifty-fiv- e minutes or an hour, accord-ing to the plan of the assembly committee, As a result, if the students are noisy, they get penalized by getting shorter assemblies. And there is the point of the opinion of the visiting celebrities. If we conduct ourselves with the dignity of high school students, the performers will carry away a good opinion of us. People will be glad to come here and display their talents. So let's cooperate, and we will have better and longer assembles. Dorothy Strike Beverly Madsen Even though our school spirit at. games has improved since the beginning of school, a great improvement could still be accomplished. Has the war got something to do with our lack of interest? Just because there's a war on, don't let your spirit lag, get in there and fight! Fight alongside our boys. They need the whole school behind them. Congratulations to the small handful of boys land girls at the B game, November 10. Though there were only about twenty-fiv- e, they certainly showed everyone what some of South's spirit is like. If everyone did as well as they, there would be nothing said about school enthusiasm. It seems as though the A games are the only ones anyone is interested in, but after all, the B and C teams need a little help too. Come on, gang, get in there and give out with the old one-tw- o, you know: Blue and white boys We're going to win. Fight to the finish Never give in. You do your best boys, We'll do the rest boys; Fight on to victory. Get the idea? At the next game, whether foot-bal-l, basketball or whatever it may be give out with all you got. The teams will appreciate it and they'll do their best to prove it. Jennie Gough Finish High School While the war is on, and jobs are plentiful, it is a temptation to take a good job, and not to finish high school. But after the war is over, with all service men and women com-ing back, the jobs will be more scarce. Those who have not at least a high school diploma will be at a great disadvantage. No matter what kind of position one may desire, a high school diploma is of value. In nearly every job for which application is made, the question is asked, "Are you a high school graduate?" There is hardly an oc- -. cupation but could be filled Abetter by having a complete high school training. The manager of a local store, when inter-viewed, stated that in employing girls, even as clerks, if there are two applicants, and each has the same qualifications, except that one has a high school diploma and the other hasn't, it invariably turns out that the per-son who has the diploma gets the job. This is in war time, too, so it is even more neces-sary right now, and will be even more im-portant during peace time. Competition after the war will be greater. Those with the best qualifications will be placed in the more desirable positions and the more education one has, the better the chance for advancement. There is a satisfaction in knowing that one has graduated from high school. No matter whether or not the education is intended for making a living, there is great satisfaction and pride in possessing that piece of paper that signifies graduation. The person who has had a high school edu-cation is better qualified as employer, em-ployee, husband, wife, father, mother, neigh-bor, intelligent participant in social, religi-ous, and civic affairs.
