Say, Pat Williams, who dropped who? Did you drop Bobby, or did he drop you? Alice Biezer has the same old flame. Timmie Hardenstein is his name. Betty Lou N. has really three Of the cutest boy friends you ever did see. ' Here's a question that has us all awhirl. Why did C.'s friend Walter write to Mrs. Earl? Audrey Chcvis, tell us if you may, V. Fitzgerald and Bobby G. made up after that fight. Don't despair, Valerie, true love nev- er runs smooth. Betty V. was running for Queen of the May, But preferred with Bob to see the Kyser's boy, Kay. No, it wasn't Elroy's fraternity pin That helped him Betty P.'s heart to win. Jayne Brennan's letters keep life from being dull Since they're from a cute Arkansas Chucky N. and A. P. adore just looking at the moon. Seems as if they've passed the state of simple love in bloom. Tell me, Dit, tell me how Bill thrills you so right now. Tell us while our curiosity's mild. Whose ring' is that, Juanita Wild? Vera Ann went away for the week- end And fell in love with Buddy again. Sid's love for Kate doesn't need much fuel, And, confidentially, it's mutual. Are you as fickle as people say? COI'p0ra1- Wh tt ll ,Ett M P.?

between Us I Barbara !Conroy, '41 Editorlv Note-Ax thix is the last time I shall write this rolumn, I am very glad it is longer than it has ever been since I have had charge of it. To my to-editor, Robin, who has certainly been "a friend in need," goes all the credit for that. I hope you will give your next' editor even better eo-operation, and that this folumn will be bieger and better lhan ever. Noun Robin and I are forred to say "Goodbye" to MeMain. "Ethoer." and each and every one of you. Barbara. Albert Moskau and Patsy P. Are as in love as any two can be. Bobby's not to blame, we guess, For falling in love with Gloria S. Does Clark Gable give Pinky S. a thrill? No, she'd just rather be with Phil. Why does M. Burvant on the porch sit? Could it be to see Bernard who's Clitli? Come on and tell us, Claire Mae Z., Is it S. P. O., or is it P. L. E.? Come on, Dot Sutter. Please con- fess! Why's Kentucky's place been filled with Jimmy S.? M. Becker, who can it beg Tell us, is it I.. J. or B. C.? If Charles A. lost Betty Jean Y., Some think he would nearly die. Doris and Tommy have parted ways. But will it be for many days? Who' do we see with Carla B.? Could it be F. J. D.? Someone in P.L.E. C. Daley did wing We know, for she has his frat pin. Tell us, Patty P., please do, Is it Joe S. who thrills you through and through? Lois L. tries to look her best, Whenever she sees Adolph Indest. We all know Marion E. likes to see A certain boy whose initials are B.V. Alice S. is another girl, Who likes a boy whose name is Earl. Lila C. would surely bawl If ever she lost her Paul. Marcelle's heart goes willy-nilly, Whenever she is in Gentilly. E-C-H-O-E-S We all know Jean F's joy Is when she sees that Muller boy. Barbara B., what's this we hear? Have you dropped Jimmy for another year? Come on, J. Sarderes, please tell., Is Jack the one you love so well? Ruth Hogue's decided on Bobby N., Or is it his Phi Kappa Sigma pin? Six McMainians have a crush- President Cit is getting the rush. Catherine Nelson's fancy has turned to maroon. Is it the convertible-or was it the moon? Now, Lelie Bridger, that's not nice! Turning down poor Freddie Guice! Janie Gros is in love again. Her new flame? It's Bobby N. Why Massachusetts, Margaret Ann? That's no place to get suntan. R. Lombardini hasn't a care When she's with Henry, the ex-De- bonaire. Eva Lee, you're not that kind. Co-me on. Quick! Make up your mind. Essie Mae Edwards, which will it be, Your military wedding-Army or Navy? Claire Daley's in love with "Uncle" Sam, And we don't mean the Government man. Leroy Constantin acquired a frat pin. Did it belong to W. N.? Flo Leeman's love must really be true If she still dreams of Buddy at L.S.U. Though Adele Yost hasn't much to say, We know of those letters from far away. Step right up and pick your twin- It's all up to you, Helen Pitkin. Absence made Flo's heart fonder, we see, For she's still in love with her Bob V. Virginia Mazza never knows what's showing at the showy I'll bet she knows what color Kit's eyes are, though. Ethelrelda J. and Bob S. are excep- tions to the rule That loving too much is sometimes so cruel. Cupid's made a hit again! It's Kathryn La Borde and Bill Whit- man. Eola Prowell must get around- Two in Alabama and two in town. If Barbara Allen could do some bum- min', It would be, "California, I'm a-com- in! !!! Maybe you can solve our mystery. How's Alwyn, Jr., Eugenie? Lois Elmer has gone tropical, too. It's Bob A., a Cuban, from Bay St. Lou. Rosemary A., we're surprised at you. Are you still sad about L.S.U.? Gene Schaefer and Olyve Drell Will soon be hearing wedding bells. No, Jean Serira, it wasn't just Spring. You're sure nowg you've his Tulane ring. More wedding bells to ring out soon. Shirley Vaeth gets her diamond in June. Weldon and Yvonne I.. still walk on air. Don't you think they make a hand- some pair? In her crystal a fortune teller did see Wint's love for C. Earl. Where's Bobby T.? Clair W.'s engaged jto a military man. Have you seen her ring, third fin- ger, left hand? Elaine V. and Sid Garric's love must be true, After two years, it's as good as new. Cute Vivian S. is "going some" With Cal and Mat to choose from. Yvonne Latteriere, is it Jack P., Or is it his father's bakery? Audrey Virgets was happy that day When love walked in with Donald Mae. Rose Walker's heart needs a rest. It's worn out with love for Francis S. Fifty-one

South American Way This I swear, and this I say, fixchanqe Barbara Conroy, '41 Editor's Note: With this issue your editor bid: "goodbye" with a deep feel- ing of regret. I never expected to he sorry when I graduated-I was going to he gladf but I am very .rad at the thought of leaving MeMain. I have loved my staff work, and I am sorry it is over now. I have worked hard, and I hope you enjoyed my column as much as I enjoyed writing it for you. To my xureexxor, who may be anyone ol you, I wixh the hes! of luck. I hope she likes her iob as much as I did. It gives me a cold chill to have to say- "So Iong"- Barbara. There was not an overabundance of books for this issue. Every one that came is a worthy representative of its high school. There is a say- ing about a good beginning and a good ending-so I start with "The Advocate." This is a charming mag- azine filled with delightful short sto- ries. The theme was hobbies, and there were stories, poems, and pic- tures on hobbies. From their mag- azine I took these examples of be- ing brief, but to the point. Goblin Horrid black spectre On a peaceful horizon . . A test tomorrow. Gauchos and guitars, Girls, a moon and stars, Castenets and big sombreros, Spanish shawls and bright boleros. Look Upward The stars are symbols Of bright hope above a world Dark with fearsome sin. I chose this ballad of woe. It's long, but well worth repeating. Of Course l've Not a One I've tried to have a hobby And I'll admit it's fine, But now, fand I will tell you whyl I haven't got a one. I took up stamp collecting' And bought a stamp book, too. And then each day I'd look around For foreign stamps a few. I'd ask my friends and teachers And all the kids I'd see If they had correspondents From far across the sea. Of course they never had any And, you see, I was stuckg I'd spent two bits for a stamp book, too. E-C-H-O-E-S Oh, darn! Of all the luck! So then I turned to match covers. Oh, I looked all around, But the only place I saw any Was lying on the ground. Now you know that I'm a lady, And it doesn't look quite right To go 'round picking up matchbooks A-lying in plain sight. I always felt like a criminal, And glanced around a bit Before I'd stoop to pick one up, 'Cause Ma would have a fit. If she should see me act that way, I'd not forget it for one day. But you know that I'm a lady, So I won't say what she would say. After that I went to postcards. I had some good ones, toog And every day when the mail would come, I'd get one or two. At first it worked out pretty well And everything was fine, 'Til a traveling salesman I once knew Took to dropping me a line. The post-cards weren't bad, But the things he said, oh, my! I couldn't put 'em in my collection For if Ma saw, why she'd just die! To think that her prim daughter Could receive such mail, My Ma I couldn't slaughter, So that hobby, too, did fail. Another I've not begun. Now you may jeer and you may laugh, But of hobbies I've got not a one. Did you like that? From the Ex- change of that magazine I picked these little verses. Even these 'deal with diversions of some sort. Here we are warned against the hobby of a Worm. A worm A worm dug A worm dug in A worm dug in earnest A worm dug in dead earnest, Poor Ernest. The favorite pastime of a sopho- more is expressed here. The sofa sagged in the middle, The shades were pulled just so. The family had retired And the midnight oil burned low. There came a sound from the sofa, The clock was striking two, The sophomore slammed his text book With a thankful- "Well, I'm through!" fWe can be sure this was a soph- omore, for a junior or senior would have known bettelzl This one seems to discourage pas- time of kissing. Before I heard the doctors tell Of the danger of a kiss, I had considered kissing you The nearest thing to bliss. But since I took biology, All I do is groan, Six million mad bacteria- And I thought we were all alone- McMain was pleased to find her name in their exchange column. 'F Il' all "The Arlingtoniann has some in- teresting articles-among them are ones concerning embarassing mo- ments, broken hearts, reactions to pictures, fashions, and such. We re- ceived two issues of "The Arlington- ian." Among their poems was a silly little ditty called "Spring" Spring is sprung, The grass is riz, I wonder where The liowers is. Do you know your alphabet? Do you know which letter is used the most? "The Arlingtoniann did. From the exchange column I bring you- The Tale of "E" E is said to be the most unfortu- nate letter in the alphabet, 'because it is always out of cash, forever in debt, never out of danger, and in trouble all the time. All of which is true. Still it is never in war, always in peace, and always in something to eat. It is ever the beginning of existence, the commencement of ease, and the end of trouble. Without it there would be no life, no heaven. It is the center of honesty, and is always in love. It is the beginning of encouragement and endeavor, and the end of failure. 'li :ll il' The "Fa1ter Finchell" column of "The Shadow" proved very interest- ing to me and I hope my excerpts from it will interest you. Fifty-three
