Around the World with the Pioneer Reporter By Thomas Weir Like to take a trip around the world? Well, let’s go! No, it doesn’t take money or clothes. You see we borrowed the magic carpet of Sheik Hut-Sut Haff-Witte. Shhhhh! The Sheik doesn’t know about it yet. All up oh the roof now, we’re leaving. WASHINGTON All out for the nation’s capital. The streets are filled with people carrying their cars to save tires. Soldiers are every¬ where. Their grim faces and gleaming bayonets are fair warnings to any well-intending saboteur. Here also is our beseiged President. No longer is he able to retire to Hot Springs for a rest or go on a fishing trip on the late U. S. S. Houston, relief flagship of the fleet. Quick!!! Run for your lives! The five o’clock shift just got out! It’s almost as bad as the freshmen going to the cafeteria! Hurry up, now. This policeman says that a building has been erected on the vacant lot where we parked the carpet. NEW YORK This city has no equal in all the world. From the sky-scrapers to the subways, millions of people go about their daily lives. New York also has the one and only Empire State Building. If all the wires in this building were stretched out they would circle the earth a half dozen times or so. And if all the students that slept in class for 1941 alone were stretched out they would be more comfortable. We had better leave now; we just smashed a taxi fender, and here comes the driver. CANADA Here we are “north of the border.” Duck! Here comes an RCAF plane. Marvelous about the RCAF. It has grown from eight airports and seventy planes to seventy-two modern air centers and 6,000 training planes, in a short two years. ENGLAND London is still London. People are crowding pubs and theaters. Hyde Park is filled with strollers. But Big Ben rings no more. As a matter of fact, no bells ring in England today. For the minute the island fortress is attacked the bells will clang and clash the warning. As we leave this lovely land we know more than ever that, “There’ll Always Be An England.” FRANCE France’s flame of freedom is all but extinguished, but embers can be seen glowing wherever there is a large “V” chalked on a wall. Despite the bootlicking men of Vichy, France will rise again to her place of honor among the nations of the world. Vive la France! GERMANY We’re in the lion’s den now. And where’s the lion? Oh! He’s hiding at Berchtesgaden, his fortress retreat that could withstand the assault of a whole army. And speaking of Burposgaten (every man to his own taste), Hitler has an extensive wine cellar, you’ve heard the old saying, “Give the devil his dew.” The latest reports from the trapped sixteenth army tell of how the soldiers, running low on ammunition, poured water down the barrels of their guns letting it freeze for bullets. ITALY Can’t stand much more of this part of Europe. Just a peep at Bulgy Benito. Well, whatdaya know, Italy has solved her rubber shortage. They reclaimed Mussolini’s girdle. CHINA We are now in ageless China, the land of pagodas, junks and bomb craters. China is the land of Confucius, who says “Buy a bond; drop a bomb on a bum.” JAPAN Hold your noses, people. We are now over the land of the yellow men who make us “Remember Pearl Harbor.” With as little disgust as possible we leave this island of treachery. HAWAII W e are now over the beautiful island of Pacific paradise. Over there is a near an airport. The other night a Naval Commander said, quote I I. The Army has a new I unquote. Oh! Look! Here comes an Air Corps So we leave the island amid VIRGINIA Home at last! it isn’t such a bad place to be after all. The rolling mountains and beautiful valleys are a welcome sight. This land is free now. We must keep it that way. We must buy Defense Bonds and Stamps NOW to provide for the arms to fight our enemies. And say, how’d you like the trip around the world? 4 114 }

Jitterbug Jottings I says to Mrs. Turner, I says, Mrs. Turner I have very original ideas. And Mrs. Turner answers to me, she answers, Bobby, you certainly do, especially in spelling. As I was walking down the hall the other day I heard from Mrs. Rice’s room the following latin poem being recited before the class by some unknown genius. (I wasn’t eavesdropping either.) Boyibus kissibus girlbussarum, Girlibus likibus wanta somorum, Papabus herabus kissbussorum, Kickibus boyibus outa de dorum, Darkibus nightibus, no lightbussorum, Climebus gatepost, breechibus torum. I never study, I never cram, Never have 1 Flunked an exam. (I’m the teacher.) A word to the: Sophomores: Keep off the grass. Juniors: Please desist from troffing on the domesticated bl d s. Seniors: Kindly abstain from placing your pedal ex¬ tremities on our dew-washed campus. SPECIAL SCIENCE NEWS Willie came up to the lab, Thinking he knew plenty. He took the bottle, ignored the tab, Funeral Friday — 2:20 ! ! ! Definitions from your High School Dictionary: Algebra—A foolish system of killing time. Classroom—place where ignorance is displayed. Pet—Teacher’s servant. Report cards—Tattlers. CHEMISTRY THEME SONG Sing a song of sulphide A beaker full of lime, Four and twenty test tubes, Standing in a line When the cork is taken. Fumes begin to reek, Isn’t that an awful mess to have Five times a week ? GIRL AROUND SCHOOL (In the library) A girl, a book A boy, a look Book neglected, Flunk expected. Eight things that make teachers wish they weren’t: 1. I didn’t hear the question. 2. Write with pen or pencil? 3. When do we get our papers back? 4. I thought we were supposed to study page 38. 5. I know the answer but I can’t think of it. 6. Somebody ran off with my book. 7. Write on both sides? 8. Mother was cleaning house and thought my home¬ work paper was just another piece of trash. Answers that make teachers wish they weren’t: A rectangle is a square that is longer than it is wide. An example of a collective noun is an ash can. Little dachshund Asleep on a log; Forest fire — Hot dog! ! ! I’ve tried so hard to write a pome For one hole week I stayed at home I’ve studied all the poets great About their lives and of their fate. They all live in an attic small That was no larger than the hall And always had to go to bed On nothing but a crust of bread And now I know ’twas not my lot To be a poet or such rot Because I’ve tried with all my might But I’ve got too big an appetite! GEOMETRY PROBLEM Given: A fire engine. To prove: That fire engines are painted red. Proof: Papers are read too, two twos are four, three fours are twelve inches, twelve inches a ruler, Queen Mary’s a ruler, Queen Mary’s also a boat, boats sail in water, fish swim in water, fish have finns, Russians hate finns, Russians are red, fire trucks are always rushin’, so— Therefore, fire trucks are painted red. Conclusion: Geometry comes by perspiration instead of inspiration.
