Page Two SOUTH HIGH SCRIBE JVlo Posted "Tokyo" Hara Kiri On By Itchy Itchy Tokyo, Japan October 6, 1942 Dear Honorable 'Melican Friends: Must apologize by note for leaving Solomon Islands so sudden, but fearful of wearing out welcome. Little Japanese friend wishes you good health, and will send anniversary present by Deecember 7th to make Christmas joyful. Very sorree that one 'Melican guest over here had unfortunate accident. He shot himself in the back. Japanese people sorree you try to take Wake Island from them, but all is forgiven. Very joyful about Honorable Doolittle's little visit. Wish he stayed longer. Hope we may pay back friendly call soon. Honorable General McArthur, beloved friend of Japanese, may have company soon, when Hirohito find Shangri La. Most gracious Wendell Willkie waved 'hello' from plane yester-day. Was too busy to accept our escort. Congratulation on bond sale. Why not buy them from us? We give you big sale on them: vou cet bombs and shells with them. Courtesy Salt Lake Tribnue Japanese people very sooree. Didn't mean to sink your Yorktown boat five times last June, but know you understand and forgive. Poor Adolf. Had cold at last speech veerree bashful. Decide not to take Russia 'til tomorrow afternoon. Adolf awfully busy and worry about Stalingrad. Must also find new leash and muzzle for Benito, and get new bone for him. Very sorree must stop writing, but must get braces for teeth, and new sword. Am verree tired of saying "Now?" for Reg Manning. Humbly, Itchy-Itch- y. P. S. May drop in soon with other Japanese friends. That's My Opinion WlAn aVerage boy of eighteen or nineteen has usual-ly not started his life career. He has no wife, family or dependents. He lives a life pretty much of his ChASman of draft age is probably married and has children. Do these Americans stop to realize what it might mean for a young bride to loose her husband? to raise her children alone. Of course, we don't want our youths to be lost at war either. Our boys are well trained. It is the well-train- ed boys that come back with Victory, ttie side that has the best marksmen and the best trained men will win a war such as we are fighting. These young men are easier to train. They learn faster to take orders and obey them. They are quicker in learning. They are easier to work with. In my opinion the bill should be passed to draft young Americans.

Victor Entered in the post office at Salt Lake City as second class matter under the Act of March 3, 1879, Cites Need of Friendship One thing we all need on our journey through this world is friendship. It is true that hours will come when our best friends will fail us, but it is also true that love of a friend is the greatest thing in the world, and no one can spurn or reject it. Without friendship, a man is miserable for in happiness and sorrow, too, the heart of a friend is our common need. When, our life is pl.easant and easy, they will increase our happiness. There will always be the steadying force of friendship, and the love that would be sure that right is right. Johnny McMillan. An Open Letter To New Salt Lakers Dear New Students: We have checked and found that there are 101 of you who have registered at South and are new in Salt Lake City. Fifty-on- e came from schools within the state of Utah, and the rest from other states running from the state of Washington to Washing-ton, D. C. You feel blue because you have to leave your friends and the school you were beginning to love? I, too, would be sad and broken hearted if I had to leave South and my associates I have found. But there are new friends to be made here. We of South are going to make you forget your homesickness. Join hands with us and we will clear the way for you. There are the student body dances, but you say you danced different where you came from and you won't go. Come on and show us how you dance. Maybe we'll like it. We all need a cnange once in a while from the old routine. Then there are the assemblies. You know what you can do so let us in on the secret. We all "lap" up new talents. It is a good time to join a couple of our school clubs, now that they are just beginning to be or-ganized. Why don't you petition a club? Get one up similar to the one you were in at your former school. You have practically the whole faculty to pick a sponsor from, if you hurry. How about going to the game with us after school ? They say its going to be a "whiz". Be seeing you in the bleachers, center . . . fourth row. Good bye for now, Cubby. Fashion Themes Pattern After "Indian Summer" There were surely some real flashy, "Fashion Flashes," flashing around Friday night at the student body dance. Those red dresses weren't just a legend from Rio. Wanda Miller looks good in red to everyone, especially to Dick North, her partner for the evening. Most of the Cubs went sport, to fit the season, "Indian Summer." Now that fall is here, darker shades are taking the place of the lighter pastels. The majority of the colors went along the waves of reds, browns, and yellows. Carole Taylor, Violet Ruga, Jean Fumer, and Gloria Clawson, all of whom were dressed in sweaters and skirts with reat pleats, were accompanied by those football heroes from Wasatch Academy . . . The friendly neighbor policy of course . . . Jimmy Craig, in a zuit suit made the confession to, do you dance? "No, I just follow Marj, (Marjorie Asmus), around, she does all the dancing." Bish Burbidge and Alice Diller, partners, wore their twin ski sweaters. These are white with a bit of red trim. Other fashions about school are those suspenders South's he-me- n, such as Bob Crookston, Raymond Halverson. Ray James, Stan Fry, Jack Edmond, Deano Companaro, Willard Nichols, and Phil Eckersley arc wearing. It doesn't matter if the colors aren't exactly those Rembrandt and Whistler would blend . . . just so they are loud enough to be heard for blocks. "The call of the wo'id," "Indian Summer", or something, is urging the majority of Cubs to wear sweaters with designs that suggest hunt-ing, skiing, climbing, or what you will. Just take a gander at Julian Maack, Darlene Miller, Beverly Holliiigsworth, Billy "Mann, Barbara Birkland, and Dean Barney. It may give you the urge, too. Scriblettes Snoop; Southerns Get Griddled News BY JOY WIEST, VIOLET RUGA This Week's Mytery: Which one of the seven dwarfs does Chick Woolf resemble and in what way? If you cannot figure that one out, consult your next Scribe for the answer. So That Jetta Hedgepeth May Know: Ruby Hansen, the blond, (South has an Auburn Ruby Hansen, too, you know) thinks you fix your hair "Just beautifully." South has an Einstein in the making, for Siegfried Weiss is now defying the law of gravity. To verify our statement, look at his wave. Candidate for cuddle is Jack Giacomo. What are you laughing at, Conrad Whipperman ? Did you know that Betty Rankin has come between Royal Nielsen and Roy Marsh? If you don't believe us, look on page 113 of the 1942 Southerner. Lor-raine Everill plays hockey, not hookey, like nobody's business. And to whom it may concern, beware of that swing! Isn't Carrie Grondell an adorable name? The senior brunette who owns it is an outstanding stu-dent in second period Salesmanship. LaRoqoe Camp-bell is taking Psychology to discover what is on his mind. Someone ought to warn Bob Hawk. Have you heard about Dan Hogan ? Well, who are we to spread idle gossip? Stan Schoenfeld is a Southerner whose real value isn't being appreci-ated by enough of us. This handsome kid has brains, ability, and flashy brown eyes. Louise Forsgren and DeLone Cheney can be seen in levies almost anytime after school roaming the vicinity of Hampton Avenue. While we are on Hampton, we are reminded of Faul Roberts, which brings to mind Idamae Stevens, who is probably on his mind. Larry Hill, do you have a problem to solve? If you have, you had better solve it before this war progresses any further and if you cannot settle on a quick decision, you had better begin saving your money to finance a journey to New York, (if you can get a travel priority) where you must have a con-ference with Mr. J. B. Anthony. If this doesn't help, read "The Importance of Living," by Min Yutang-- , who is a Chinese philosopher. Dugivay Doesn't Disgruntle Doughboys To the southwest of this fair metropolis lies a cantonment surrounded by one of nature's most abun-dant gifts sand. When just a baby pile, it was christened Dugway by some fellow with a great imagination. Taking pity on Mother Nature's mistake is South who has set out to provide recrea-tional facilities for the boys stationed there. Each day 175 men awake, rub the sand out of their eyes, and ears, nose, throat, bed, shoes, cloth-ing, and proceed to devour a breakfast camouflaged by sand. An enormous supply of water is found under-ground. Of course, it is necessary to dig at least 400 feet before fresh H20 can be obtained. So, every time one of Uncle Sam's soldiers wants a drink he takes a shovel and starts digging. Because of the situation which now exists at Dugway, South is endeavoring to give the boys there a little pleasure by providing them with magazines, games, and amusements. But the boys aren't kicking. They're taking over Deseret's de-serted desert. Li t' ABNER- - v ALCAPP EjKEi ' p : irr1 .fiTSfc CVt? I Nutritious Foods Will Clear Complexions The object of our affection is to change your complexion from whatever it is to a smooth, flawl- ess, rosy red. Although we don't intend to ac-complish this by making you blush, we are afraid that many among us would blush with shame if they knew that while they were deploring the state ot their skin, they were eating food that would make it worse. Those individuals simply fail to realize that by eating better food, more nutritious food, and by eating properly balanced meals, they, too, may have a lovely complexion. It will be a happy day for them when they dis-cover that greasy foods, (sorry, but French fries are included) and too many sweets will cause any complexion to break out in the world; and that by eating fresh vegetables and fruits, and' by drinking lots of milk and water, the aforestated trouble can be kept out of sight and under control. To those individuals who wish to lose just a little weight: We know you love all kinds of good food. Any normal person does. And it is most important, too, that even the plumpest among us get plenty of the right food so that we may have enough pep and energy to enjoy this life. Courage: An Example For Every Student The parents of a former South high student did not realize that he was blind, until they sent him to school at the age of six. There they found that he was barely able to distinguish objects. So, his parents sent him to a school for the blind in Cali-fornia. There he got a foundation suitable for eli-ment-education. When he reached high school age, he enrolled in classes at South high school. It was made possible for him to study here by the help of the NYA. For most of his studies, he would have a reader. In the typing class, he would make up his stories in the time lessons, with correct punctuation, spelling, etc., and he wrote at the speed of fifty words a minute. He had an interest in music, and for a while was planning to become a piano tuner. Today, he is a third-yea- r student at the University, and his chances of success are great. When at South, he would never miss the school dances. No handicap could hold a person back who had that much determination to succeed.
