MONA HARRIS-Barry SHEARIN
Scene: Washroom of Tee-Heed Aircraft Factory.
Characters: Rosie the Riveter and Swing-Shift
Mazie: Golly, this first day has strictly been hard.
Look, Rosie, I broke my longest and most cherished finger
Rosie: So what! "I gave a finger nail." What
kind of slogan is that in comparison to "I gave a son"
or a brother or a sweetheart?
Mazie: For heaven sakes, I'm not beeling. I just
merely said-Oh, skip it!
Rosie: Say! Did that cute foreman give you the
brush-off? Oh, brother! Blonde tresses et cetera. From
now on you might as well keep 'em hidden under that
scarf, according to rules, for all the good it does.
Mazie: Maybe. But I'd rather have this book of
instructions than his attention any time. After all, I'm
at Tee-Heed Aircraft to help win the war.
Rosie: I agree with you IOOW. For a dizzy
sweater girl you've got the right idea. Now, let's have
a look at that pamphlet before they decide our place is
at home knitting socks instead of riveting airplanes.
Mazie: Hey, this can't be the right book. It says:
Imlrurtiani' at to lbe Future of the Clair of '44,
Rosie: Not really! Let's investigate. I might have
scruples about prying into somebody's past, but his
future . . . that different.
Mazie: You might is right. Um-mum. Listen.
This must have been quite a fella.
The youth of America will flock to hear the popular
lecturer, James Mays, expound his theories on love, court-
ship, and marriage. His method of practicing what he
preaches, has well fitted him for this work.

hence, will still be trying to choose between Joe, Robert
and that perfectly woo-onderful sailor man.
Josephine Ferguson of Fancy Finger Waves and
Company will be presented after ten years of faithful

each day in which to comb her hair as much as she
It seems that Stoten Outlan's years spent at local
drug stores watching the Babes go by was not in vain.
It inspired Stoten to establish a chain of soda fountains
at such Jrenir spots as Miami Beach, Daytona Beach, and
Virginia McLeary thought that with shoe-rationing
on, the smart thing to do would be to marry a shoe
salesman. She will do just that and ten years from to-
day will find her still wearing her graduation shoes.
Frances Crosson, whose red-haired temperament will
win many an argument for the State of Tennessee in
Congress, will put the clever Clare Boothe Luce com-
pletely out of the picture.
The successors to Lum and Abner will be Roy
Whitworth, the local farmer, and William Johnston, his
blacksmith pal. It seems that since they took over, Kob
Korner has developed into a thriving metropolis.
Bobby Douglass, the would-be Sergeant York of
World War II, will make a name for himself not as a
hero, but as the author of a book titled, How lo Condurt
a Hiitory Clan, and dedicated with grateful appreciation
to his Sr. History teacher.
Nancy Yelton, along with Carmen Miranda, will
share honors awarded by Secretary of State Cordell Hull
for her splendid work in smoothing out the rough spots
in our Pan-American Relationship.
Anne Shelley will play the organ in a little church
around the corner in a large city where her husband will
be a widely known pastor.

the highway between Jackson and Atwood suffered while
Charles wore it out trying to get Martha Anne to say

pursued by tall, blond, and curly haired boys while in
high school, will finally assert her preference and marry
that remain brunet,
Nowell Bingham of oratorical fame, will become
the silver "mouthpiece" of notorious Lefty, the Lug.
Isabell Reynolds, who in her own sweet, serene
way always managed everybody and everything, will
surprise her family and friends alike, by becoming one
of the many wives of a glamorous Arabian sheik, and
will submissively spend the rest of her life gazing from
behind the veil according to Arabian customs.
Elise Eaves, of the raven locks, will become the
ace commentator for Drip Drop Lotion, and will give
Mr. Winchell, himself, the run-around with her light-
ning tongue and ability to get around fast.
Frances Seward Wilson joined the WACS shortly
after graduation to be near Private Wallace Wilson.

to sell Hershey Bars.
