Baton Rouge, La. QINSQ-At a
meeting of the Colleges Coaches
of America, held here last week,
Coach L. Marsh, of Texas Chris-
tian University, held the spot-
light as he upheld the old style
regulations concerning the pay-

"It's O. K. to pay their way
thru schoolg but when it comes
to paying for their dates, that's
too much", says Marsh.
Style Show at Loeb's
Miss Betty Duncan, manager
of Loeb's, has announced, to the

that a fashion show will be pre-

noon at four o'clock. Five lovely
madamoiselles from Gay Paree
will be the model artists, Misses
Fox, Guirl, Zeigler, Burkholder,
Not that we mistrust Loeb's
statement, but that list sounds
like the roll call of the class of
'39 at W. L. H. S. to us.
