PAGE THIRTY-TWO SEASON OF 1938 1939 THE ORIOLE Jack Ward, an aviation in- structor, having delivered a lec- ture on parachute work, con- cluded: “And if it doesn’t open — we’l, gentlemen, that’s what is known as ‘Jumping to con- clusion.’ " Compliments of EMMART’S MILLINERY SHOP PULASKI, VA. AM EVERYDAY TRAGEDY The day was one of those clear, beautiful days, when it is unbearable to remain indoors. In the park, children were playing, free from school, and people were resting and talk- ing. The wholre scene was one of cheerfulness and yet, at the same time, restful and peace- ful. On a bench by the lake, a young girl was seated looking at the water. She seemed to be in her twenties, and was an un- usually attractive girl. But she looked lonely — just sitting and thinking. On another bench on the opposite side of the small lake, sat a very good-’ooking young man who also seemed to be just thinking. The girl, who had not pre- viously noticed him, suddenly looked up and met his eyes. She blushed and then, as he seemed to be such a nice young man, she suddenly smiled. He a’so smiled, and then she was looking the other way again. But that wasn’t all there was to it, because she was thinking. “He’s an awfully — by Margaret Owen be just the type that is pleas- ant and agreeable. " And he was thinking. She’s the prettiest girl I’ve ev- er seen. I wish I weren’t ’way over here on this sid e of the lake. " Then she was musing again, “Maybe if I looked that way again — I really should leave but be might walk by, and I would like to meet him. " And over on the other bench he sat — wondering what she wou ' d think if he should happen to go over her way. She looked like such a nice girl and had such a nice, friendly smile. Time slowly passed. First, fifteen minutes — then half an hour was gone. One of the love -smitten young people wou’d emit a long sigh and then the other would also sigh. But, of course, neither heard the other. So it went, until each gave up and rose to leave. The girl took one path and the boy another. There were two sorely dis- appointed people in the world that day. Each wished that the other had made a move toward making an acquaintance. But then, how was each one to know that the other was a nice-looking boy. He seems to deaf mute? Joe Aylor stood behind an irritable old woman in a line waiting to get in the show. She: “Stop your pushing, can’t you? " Joe: “Excuse me, Madam, I did not push, I only sighed.” Compliments of J- WALLACE A MODERN and COMPLETE Woman’s Shop at POPULAR PRICES THE SOUTHWEST TIMES “PULASKI COUNTY’S DAILY NEWSPAPER” E THE MOST ECONOMICAL E and BEST ADVERTISING MEDIUM
