THE ORIOLE SEASON OF 1938 1939 PAGE TWENTY-NINE i « | « i I ( t i t « » | » i ! ' « i, Ji t t How To Enjoy Y ourself In Snowy Weather — By Betty Jordan “Old Man Winter” is always welcome to me. He can bring on the snow and ice, the frost- ed window panes, the silvery icicles and all, the more the better. What a thrill to wake after a snug sleep on a winter’s night to open your eyes on the prettiest scene nature ever ar- ranged! Every tree bent low with lovely white snow not a footprint to be seen in all that beautiful blanket. It’s hard to get up even with such enticement as that beau- tiful scene and the smell of a good hot breakfast floating up the stairs. But you put on your breakfast smile, for to- day’s a holiday and count one- two-three — O-oh! The floor’s too cold. But, oh, how grand and warm you feel when you’re all dressed and eating breakfast. After breakfast oil your boots, hunt out your heavy knickers, put on your scarf and toboggan, for you have to be mannish even though you are a girl, to have fun in snowy weather. Wheel What a thrill to swoop from the top of the hill, over the dip, and away like “greased lightning.” Aren’t you glad you have the fastest sled on the hill and aren’t you glad we have this bi’l that ends in a field instead of being worried about traffic? Flying down the hill your stomach doing funny turns, snow in your eyes, wind in your ears, laughing all the while, you couldn ' t wish for more fun! A day is not enough and how could you get enough of such fun that makes you “feel like a million,,” and boy! Do you eat. WAVERITE BEAUTY SHOPPE Phone 4 WASHINGTON AVENUE Ground Location INTERVIEW . . ★ — By Betty Jordan There was mother calling again. Couldn’t she under stand that you had to look your best when interviewed by such an important man as Rodney Blake. “Com-i-n-g. I don’t want any breakfast Muh! (I’m too excited to eat anything! And I hate oatmeal.) After bolting down such a A huge friendly bonfire that lights up the hill, and laugh- ter and cheers that ring out of the clear coldness, make night sledding more fun than that in the daytime. Then too, the gang doesn’t really mind if you ask them to gather around the fire at home and have hot choco’ate and cookies. These are only a few of the many pleasures of snowy weather. Try them. I will guarantee that you will neith- er forget it nor regret it. Compliments of PULASKI LUMBER COMPANY lot of “horrid” oatmeal, not without complaint, Debby flew out the front door with one arm in her coat, and her beret, like a large green pan- cake, right on top of her head. Seeing Tom Morrison whom she considered velry young and very silly coming down the street, she came to an abrupt halt at the gate. Quick- ly she put on her beret and mi- raculously, got the other arm in her coat before he saw her. Honestly he was so young, on- ly eighteen. Why, you couldn’t compare him with such a handsome man as Rodney Blake. “Hi gal. How’s the star re- porter? The Alma Mater couldn’t do without her.” This was told to a saucy robin on a nearby tree. “Humph! You just wait. You’ll see what they say at school when I bring in my in- terview with Rodney Blake, the explorer!” School was very boring and the hands of the clock on the by. Debby was the first one out at the sound of the dismissal bell. She called a taxi and was soon in the elevator of Hotel Winston. Her heart was beat- ing like the well known trip- hammer as the floors whizzed wall seemed to be glued. Her hand trembled so much when she knocked on the shiny 700 that she had to knock twice to be heat’d. The door opened to reveal a short, but a very angry little man. “Is — is Rod — I mean, Mr. Blake in at present?” “Wait a minute,” he frown- ed back. Gosh, were all secretaries as rude as this one? Before she could take a deep breath necessary to face what was to come, she was ushered swiftly into a huge room and seated in a chair that made her look like a little girl. Some fifteen minutes of dreadful suspense has passed when, from a door at the side of the room, came a tall, stout, bulbous-nosed, middle aged man. As soon as he had enter- ed, the short, fat man, who had been standing like a sen- try beside the door, left the room. Debby was too disappoint- ed to speak. “Wie gehts, Fraulein.” “Huh — I mean — uh — what did you say?” Then the man began speak- ing so rapidly what was evi- dently German that Debby fled in bewilderment. The elevator was much too slow so she chose the stairs which she fairly flew down. Just as she slowed down to walk out the door with what little dignity she had left, someone called. “Hy gal. What’d he say?” She panted, “Oh-Oh-Tom! he-he was-gulp — a horrid, fat, old man — who talked — wh- like — a-a pig grunts I — think — it was German. But don’t you dare tell a soul!” On the front page of the school newspaper next day ap- peared this small notice. “Rodney Blake had no statement to make to our pa- per Tom Morrison (Ed.)
