Friday, April S' 1943' Page Two SOUTH HIGH SCRIBE April Inspires Exciting New Wardrobe For South's Many Misses It's April, the month of contrasts, where sun and wind and rain play tag with each other. It's April, a month for staying out of doors, working, playing, walking a month to make you think about the out-fits you'll wear in all those added hours in the sun. Jumpers are coming in- - . to the limelight as Jean Whipp and Carol Simpson iiQ prove. They have combin- - J? ed the popular combina- - (BMp tion of gingham with a MWrsm jumper style and chose ;C twin jumpers of red and white candy stripe. Bever- - &ifJVyIJ ly Egbert has two jump- - 9 ers, one of powder blue j --M embroidered with white I and one brilliant plaid taf-- I feta, both of which are ex-- Jy tremely becoming. fj L Spring brings the desire II jf for coolness and simplicity I jbfwt which makes the round- - hJ'Jt necked blouses popular. w ;zC(jiVi Mareen Hartman has a "" dainty pink one and Pat Brandly has one which exactly matches her nice green eyes. Other supporters of these practical blouses are Julie Spitz, Darlene Snarr, and Dor-othy Kilgore. The definite highlights in the fashion world for the month a bright bow tie to wear with your tailored suit; collars and more collars to dress up your old frocks; pastel gabardines for suits and dresses; and for a little later on, rayon shantung in both light and dark colors.

VICTOR (Member Jf A9Z) Presenting . . . the Kid Across The Aisle Carol Wheelwright is five feet of charm from Washing-ton, D. C. She will be around next year, which is fortunate for all who know her, including the boys. That is, if Darwin Reid does not have too much of a head start. Carol plans to take a third year at South if the war does not change her plans. , m The name may not be famil-iar, but the face, which bears a strong resemblance to that of Betty Grable, is certain to be remembered. Yes, it is Bryant's contribution to South, blonde, blue-eye- d Billie Evans. She is a junior and likes South very much, and South likes her. Cadet Jack Bolton is another new comer who is making a name for himself. He is tall, has brown eyes, dark curly hair, and a disarming smile which wins his way into all hearts. He likes to bowl and enjoys sports which require strength and skill. Flossie Stone has blonde hair, green eyes and hails from Pro-v- o. Her favorite sport is bas-ket ball. She is an excellent student, especially in Spanish. She holds her classmates spell-bound with her fluent speaking of the foreign language. A person who you should be introduced to before leaving South is Ralph Pearson. He is not only fun to know, but is admired by his friends for his excellent ability in pubic speak-ing. His two main interests lie in ROT'C and pretty Betty Hol-ma- n. Beverly Inkilas, who has dark hair and brown eyes, is a jun-ior. Being fond of sports she spends a great deal of her time bowling. Every night she and her mother bowl and Beverly makes an average score of 240 points. She is also interested in basket ball and attended all of South's games this season. i Daffy Scribe Digs Into Crazy Excuses "Reasons" for many Southern-ers being late were found in the files of Mr. Hale's and Miss Mo-nay- 's offices by super sluething scribes. Herewith is an example of some of the excuses given by "ten o'clock scholars." Many gave their cars as excus-es: Paul Rosander, "Couldn't get my car started"; Dave Lingard "Left early, but car broke down"; and Bob Kean, "Got a flat tire." Abbert Ordena and Joel Jensen merely put "Slow." (Incidentally, this excuse was used the most by latecomers). Arden Knudsen was "waylaid," and Barbara Jensen was kindlv, "Helping my girl friend with her boots." Fred King was "Standing out talking," while Wayne West was "Detained in hall." Bonnie Walker says, "I was ill after I ate my lunch." Glen Crookston, "Lost my lock-er key." (He found it later). Lester Hartman was late be-cause he was sewing his pants. Frances Luing was "Fixing a tear on dress." Kay Gertino said, "Had to fix my sweater." Phillip Green, "Waited for egg to cook." Roy Marsh had "too much night life." Gordon Scoffield was "unavoid-ably detained by an incendiary blonde." Well now! The above excuses are results of well-traine- d imaginations. Post-Wa-r Education Education for after the war is just as important, if not more so, than education, for the war. The educational program of the Amer-ican youth has been interrupted by the sud-den change in world order. The industrial demands for more and more workers offer the student an opportunity to get employ-ment and experience. Limited requirements and good wages blind young people to the fact -- that a -- sound education holds more value for them in the long run than tempor-ary employment. They are forsaking their studies to become workers in war plants and industries which are short of labor because of inadequate man-powe- r. Seeing everyone else obtaining the, benefits of higher salaries creates within them the natural desire to get their share. Of course, we have a job to do and it must be done at all cost. Being idealistic and patriotic, youth is plunging into the task with all the vigor, determination, and courage which is so characteristic of the American people. We can be proud of this spirit, but at the same time, we must realize the far-reachi- ng result of such action. They have arisen to this crisis like true men and women, but will they be prepared for the post-wa- r crisis to follow? If their edu-cation is cut short now, will they show the judgment and wisdom of true men and women when the time comes to restore world order? That is the far-reachi-ng result for which we must be far-sight- ed now. Look-ing into the future and fortifying ourselves to meet the momentous, inevitable problems to come, are our duties not only to our-selves, our country, and the whole world, but to our posterity, and world posterity. America will undoubtedly be the nucleus about which all the other nations will center and draw their governmental ideas and economic systems. The people of the world will be depending upon us to supply them not only with food and materials with which to rebuild their countries, but they will also have to depend upon what is now the youth of America, who will then be the men and women of America to give them advice, cul-ture, and encouragement. For this reason the youth of today must sacrifice their immediate wishes to become part of the actual war program in order to be fully prepared for the victory program. They must try to see how much more im-portant it is to be able to meet the situation then, than to take part now. Then they will realize that staying in school until they are well-educat- ed is the best course if they want to do the right thing when victory is won. E. J. More Water Flows Under South's Bridge In twelve short years, the Book of South has become a history a history of a school already rich in ideals of democracy and the American way of life. Its pages contain the names of students who have come to this school to gain an education, and have left it to become examples of what South stands for fine citizens. Their achievements will long be remembered. From the opening chapter, South has progressed, not satisfied with all the old standards but making new ones. It has given students the chance to gain social as well as educational qualities. Its organizations, clubs, and government have developed a friendliness and sociability not to be excelled by any other school. The boys' and girls' organizations have provided activities to encourage the students to use their talents and to profitably occupy leisure time. Our teams have fought hard and fair and have helped to keep and increase the splen-did school spirit. In 1938, '39, '40, '41 and 42, the city basketball championship rested in the hands of South. This is not our only athletic achievement. The other teams have done a lion's share of keeping South in the minds of all. The E. 0. T. C. has brought distinction to the school by its honor ratings and fine attitude for service. Also the Colonel to command the three high schools at Regi-mental Review was chosen from South. With all these things going on, we still come to South to be educated. The social activities may be forgotten, but what we have learned will be used throughout our lives. We are building our characters each day, and whether we realize it or not, what we are to be, we are now becoming. These memories will linger on and be brought to mind again and again as South makes new names for itself. The graduat-ing class is proud to be the twelfth because of the heritage behind them. We hope to leave our mark along with those of the class-es before us. We challenge the classes ahead to remember the standards set down by all these years, and help South go on to greater heights and fame. South, with its friendli-ness, democratic ideas, and fine educational opportunities, is to be a continued inspiration through the years. BEAK FAX Dick Peterson, better known as Pete, one of South's un-draft- ed alumni, has been dat-ing small, blond, and exciting Marilyn Geertsen. There is Miss Alexander's answer to the long past due shorthand assignments from Marilyn. Ever since Kenneth Gempler was named ideal possessor 'of the "Draftee's Fuzz" he's been stroking his chin. Did you hear about that cer-tain boy who assertedly came to school with Chickenpox so he could take a test? If that is true, he's one in a million. In - a - phrase ' description of Dick Biesinger:.. "The Lone Wolf!" If sometime you're in need of a good laugh, ask Louise Forsgren to whistle for you. It's really different. Girls all over the school have been debating about the Girls' I Dance. They say it isn't proper V to take a boy on the bus, es-pecially when the girl is in a formal. Well, girls, better de- - , t ride soon, because the dance isn't far away. Clarice Trogstad has her head in the clouds. Who is he, Clarice? Ah-Ah-A- h! Don't Tuck That Napkin Social improvement a la Em-ily Post occupies the advisory period of Mrs. Florence Hick-man's first period Spanish class. Students of 225 are finding out all about etiquette and the proper procedure at social af-fairs, and they love it! Using his dramatic ability, Royal Neilson, master of cer-emonies at these sessions, lends charm and humor to the pages of "Manners for Moderns." The laughs are numerous and the information enlightening. The much desired instruction con-tained in this small book meets with the hearty approval of the students and they look forward to a pleasant fifteen minutes each morning with the social do's and don'ts. As the proper dining room, theater, and ball room behavior is discussed, the shocked listen-ers find that the popular prac-tice of "pumping" on the dance floor is taboo, and they also find that the napkin does not tuck under the chin. The lively discussion prompt-ed by some of the 4 questions proves that the strong, silent male takes as much interest in correct social behavior as the girls.
