APril 2' 1943- - Pase Two SOUTH HIGH SCRIBE GAY CLOTHES ACCENT SPRING'S CALL TO OUR CUBBETTES March 21, that means spring wherever you are. And South high is no exception. Already the crisp, fresh, pastel hues of dain-ty frocks can be seen parading the halls and brightening the classrooms. A very charming example of how popu-lar green will be is seen on Patsy Hansen. This medium green frock is set off by a clean-lookin- g white trim and is sailor style, which is becoming so popular. Arden Knudsen wore an especially dif-ferent dress last week. It was lightweight wool in . a deep rose. The hand-stitche- d trim matched the large initial, A, in a contrast-ing wine color. Topped off by a pretty pink bow in her hair, Colleen Haynes wore a refreshing two-piec- e turquoise suit the other day. The skirt had a kick pleat in back and front and the jacket was very long, which gave a redingote effect. Of course, for the stabilizing costume in your wardrobe, you'll stick to your classic navy blue suit, trimmed up with fresh crisp, collar, dickeys and blouses. Miss Martin has a nice one which she wears with a white lace collar. Marjorie Wallin's green corduroy jumper jumper looks very crisp and fresh with her long-sleev- ed white blouse. A proud wearer of the ever-love- d two-pie- ce is Dorothy Holmes. Her soldier blue suit goes just right with her blue eyes and lovely blonde hair. But the new silhouette on the horizon, the frock that plays two roles, is the coat dress. Slim princess lines, buttons that march down the front, small revers, three-quart- er sleeves, all combine to produce a dress that looks like a complete outfit in itself. See illustration. Miss Alexander looks very slim and trim in her bright red coat dress which zips up the front. Her jet black hair together with her black leather belt and necklace set the dress off perfectly. Betty June Rawle's bright-colore- d prin-cess dress is Barbara Birkland goes patriotic in a blue suit, red topcoat, red beany, red purse and crisp white moccasins and blouse. White coat jackets like Gloris Clausen's white corduroy jacket with the huge yellow buttons, along with lumber jackets, pea jack-ets and boleros, will be popular this spring. Accessories are a big help in varying your wardrobe. Suspenders, belts, beanies and ribbons all help to make last year's outfit new again. Norma Brooks greets spring with a powder blue suit. Brig Smith is her main accessory. Phyllis Neilson is seen around the campus in a dashing suit of green and white linen. The skirt is a pleated candy stripe, and the jacket is green-tailore- d. There are so many ways to make your wardrobe just a little more individual than ever before. c, outh&ribe Founded, 1931 Published by the students of South high school, 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. .

For example, the students in Mr. Humphrey's fourth period economics class see fools rush in late almost every day. Take Don Davis as a speci-ma- n to exemplify our point. He invariably follows the bell, and the other day when he came in, Mr. Humphrey said, and we quote, "Where have you been this time, Davis? I'll bet you $17 to the proverbial week-ol- d doughnut that wherever you were, you were having a dern'n good time." In the same class we have another problem fool. Joe Bonny, who stands just outside the door until the bell rings and then makes his grand entrance. Perhaps he does it just so he can write out the tardy slip and prove to Mr. Humphrey that he can really write. Then again, he might just have a mania for writing on yellow paper. Then you have heard of or been the poor fool. The poor fool never has any money for carfare because he is always spending it on his best girl. Joe Walter must be included in this class as the locket and bracelet he gave Peggy Taylor are really beautiful. Of course, there are many April fools. Elva Ashby's birth-day is on April 1, and others whose birthdays fall in April. Have you heard of the drool fools? They are the people who are continually envying or ad-miring someone or something else. They usually have eyes to see with. Also, we have the pool fools, of which there are two classes; those who use a table and those who use a pool. Some of the ienowned experts of the first class are Mel Hansen, Bill Simpson, Dick Lund, Keith Karren, Bob Williams, Roy Marsh, Lou Dods and Jack Gia-com- a. The second type of pool fools include Shirley Williams and Jean Zumwalt, who went swimming at Municipal recent-ly; who is in the bathub nine-tent- hs of the time, and Bev Hollingworth, who spends most of every summer in the pool at Fairmont park. The jewel fool is the one who is continually collecting ten-ce- nt rings from Kress' to com-pare with the bona fide col-lection in the bona fide jewelry stores. To summarize, we have the fool who rushes in, the poor fool, the drool fool, the April fool, the pool fool and the jewel fool. The worst fool of all, however, is the dumb fool who wasted time reading this fool article. And On ... Into the April Nite Dear Friends and Loyal Hearts: Last night I received the strangest information, informa-tion that should be known by every student in South high. This information deals with things that are happening right under our noses. Did you know that Wanda Miller spends her entire fourth period shining the diamond on her engagement finger? Imag-ine such a sweet thing as Wan-da being tied down by an en-gagement ring (or is she) ? Duane Johnson has kept his new red convertible Buick m storage because of gas rationing. My! now unhuman of the "wolf." Shirley Smith has decided not to buy any more new suits for the duration because of the short-age of materials. Now some-one else can buy one. Jerry An-derson broke her skiis so she can't go skiing any more. Now she'll ,have to use sun tan pow-der for her suntans. Ruth Ben-nett has grown 5' 8". Unbeliev- - 4 able, isn't it? Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Beverley Egbert and Joe Peters. Shag's assembly this year is going to be worse than last year's, if possible. Glor-ia Clauson predicts that the year book will be out by the end of April or the first of May. Dex-ter McGarry- - lost thirty pounds worrying. Who could cause him that much worry? Did you know that Ruth and Donna Carlson are half-sister-s? Here's a little bit of spicy spice! Clyde Oliver and Mar-gery Hyde didn't get in until 5:00 a. m. Friday morning after the Sweetheart's dance. She blamed it on the gas rationing! They can't fool us. We know! By the way, did! you know that women don't even bother Jay Child. He claims he can live without them. If you believe any of this, you're a bigger fool than I. April Fool, Alias, Smoothy Woothy, Hoarders Sunday, March 21, the rationing of meat and butter was announced. It was stated that butter would be frozen, starting mid-night Sunday, and lasting for a week. That afternoon and night many dairies and small grocery stores stayed open and induced citi-zens to hoard butter. One of these dairies advertised over the radio: "The rationing of butter has been announced. It will be frozen midnight. Come down to the dairy and get yours. Open until 12 p. m., and unlimited supply available." It was impossible to get within a block of the place, according to reports. Hundreds of selfish and unpatriotic people, unheeding the drive against hoarding, went down to get their butter. One man bought seven dol-lars worth of this butter at sixty cents a pound (which, incidentally, is above the ceil-ing price). The management of this dairy and many other places who sold above the ceiling price should be prosecuted. This situation was duplicated in hundreds of cities over the United States. In one large city, policemen were called out several times to stop women from fighting over 'who saw that steak first.' You will recall that when shoe rationing was announced, a few stores in New York (who don't close on Sunday) sold hundreds of pairs before the freezing went into effect. When such reports come to our ears, we wonder if patriotism is but a ten-lett- er word with a hollow meaning. How can victory be ours when some individuals are not even loyal to their government? April School When April Fool time rolls aroud And spring is in the air, There's many, many little trix That get in the teacher's hair. Jimmy with a spitball Hits Willy in the rear And soon our poor old teaches Has both boys by the ear. Then Mary screams, "A spider!" And teacher spins around. But alas the little creature Had leaped back with a bound. Teacher quickly scans the class 'Til someone says, "April Fool" Then teacher has her sweet re-venge This class stays after school. WAR BONDS The Torpedo Bombing plane has been developed to a high state of perfection and efficiency by our Navy. They have been used most efficiently to scatter and destroy both enemy fighting ships and con-voys. They use a bomb something like a sub torpedo. . The Navy Torpedo Bomber costs approximately $188,000. Our plane factories are building them at an amazing rate of construction. We need many of them and must pay ' for them through the purchase of War Bonds. You and your neigh-bors can help buy Torpedo Bombers t for the Navy if you invest at least ten percent of your income in War Bonds every pay day. U. S. Treasury Department SAM Slates Beard Contest; Lists Types Once again the South Associated Men are sponsoring the "beard contest." This con-test will start on April 2 and all who are entering must have a clean shave on or before that date. After school, on April 16, Shag officers will become the judges, and that night, at the Old Settlers' ball, the winners will receive special awards. Here are the different styles: 1. "Sixteen Days on a Raft" Stan Kilbourne, two-tim- e the winner of this contest, will show you how it's grown. However, Stan has gracefully withdrawn. 2. "Spy's Goatee" We nominate Nor-man Johnson to show you how it's done. (Incidentally, a goatee is a pointed beard, like that of a goat.) 3. "Lieutenant's Delight" How about it, Cecil Carpita, will you give us a free demonstration. The lieutenant's delight is a mustache like the Gable, the Fairbanks, or the Colonna creation. 4. "Draftee's Fuzz" Kenneth Gem-pie- r, you seem to be the type. How about it? Come on, boys, don't let us down. Remem-ber, the Old Settlers' ball, which is sched-uled for April 16. This dance will find Jimmy Neeley, Glen Davis and Phil Eck-ersle- y in charge. April Fool! The third page of this issue of Scribe has been planned with full knowledge that we may be termed as indiscreet and accused of having "more than just bad judgment." But as we see it, there can be slight harm in having some innocent fun. Should the freedom of press which the Scribe has enjoyed this year be in any way endangered by articles appearing on page three, we would assuredly not have printed them. South high is blessed with even more than its share of good sportsmanship, and since the articles have been written without malicious intent and in every sense the spirit of fair play, we believe the student body and faculty will appreciate our efforts to say "April Fool!" Side Slants While studying the posses-sive before the gerund in Mrs. Jackson's English class, Clyde Oliver confessed: "I can think of no reason for my wife's marrying me." "Pool Hall Dewey," alias the Dean of Boys, when asked the question, "Did you catch many South high boys on your recent 'vacation'?" acknowledged: "We had our quota."
