SAD BUT TRUE He was the senior favorite. All the girls were crazy about him and he was constantly urun aftern. During the year, he attended every party and dance-rated with all the girls and was considered a regular "guy", by the boys. His parents had informed him that he would be given a car for graduation-what a lucky boy he Wasl Examinations for the Seniors were in full swing, and our 'gfriendl' always came out from them smiling. The last exam he took was his math one. Some wondered Where his smile Was. On Senior day everyone searched for the favorite but he was not to be found. Some of the teachers even asked where he Was. Surely you've guessed that he Uflunkedv the math exam. Q Q ,Q PECULIAR It was a cold stormy night-it was raining both cats and dogs, and I was Wearily trudging along. I'm sure I was in a desert-no one Was around and it was dark as the mischief. After dragging my feet behind me for about ten miles, I came upon a little one-room, dimly lighted cot- tage. Just because it was unusual I stopped and looked in the window. Inside I saw a Herce looking black-bearded man and in his hand Was a dagger. What was he going to do-who was he going to kill? I saw him rise slowly and grasp the dagger tighter in his hand. He moved to the window on the opposite side of the room. Thinking there was some one over there, I rushed to the door and quietly pushed it open. My breath was gone--I could do nothing-he raised his arm-the dagger glittered in the dim light-he gradually let his arm down and stabbed-stabbed-a -a-mosquitoll 9 9 9 Wlzat Oak Cliff High would be without- Prof. Smith and his ucutersn?
