j TATTLER I %» Cynthia l°h ns°n --— I know that I’m not supposed to talk about my family and me, and the wonderful things that happen to us, but I just have to tell vou this This past Thursday afternoon the phone rang, and I answer ed it without much interest cause to walk out into the hall meant I'd have’ to turn off my -record player, and stop listening to Cement Mixer”. But when I said, “hello”, and got a “hello” back from my BROTHER, I was mighty happy! Yes, he was really oack in the States and not very far from home. He was in Norfolk where he received his discharge on Saturday morning. Dad and I drove up Saturday and got him, so now he’s back at 229 Brookwood avenue, after having been on Guam for quite some time, I guess the old home town looks mighty good to us. I think he’ll go back to MIT this fall and complete his engineering studies there, but until then he'll be home, and one of the gang again. Another welcomed face Dack home this week-end is that of i Donald Blake. I saw him on the ] beach the other night, and he's' grown up so I hardly knew him. j But he's still the same swell fella, and a mighty happy fella to be back home! This past Friday was a perfect day for the beach,' and .many of the crowd were down. I saw Lon tissery, Eugene Mauney, and Ed win Shain. These three were brave enough to emerge in the icy depths of the deep—go swimming —but I think they spent most of the rest of the day lying in the sun, thawing out! Pat Hardwick, Shirley Browm, and Betty Hanson were there, too. They all have mighty pretty sun-tans, so it pays to spend your extra time on the beach. The only trouble is, we don’t have half enough extra time. Playing baseball on the beach were Billy Lee, Pat Howe, Liston Mills, and others. A lairly newcomer to the beach is Bruce Cartier, recently dis charged member of the Navy. He lives on Harbor Island, and fre quents the beach regularly. Bobby Sanders and Charlie Brindell seem to have chosen the bowling alley at Station One as their favorite beach spot. And speaking of bowl-! ing, you should see Catherine ; Rhett sling those big balls down the alley. She shows that some! girls have brawn as well as; beauty. And she sho’ does have a ; quantity of both — especially i beauty! As I write for this week-end, the ! caps and gowns which were to be ; worn by the graduating members ! of the senior class have not ar-! rived. And the afternoon of the I Baccalaureate service is already here. A girl could realty mean it when she said, “I haven’t got a thing to wear to commencement.” The Baccalaureate sermon this afternoon at 4:45 o’clock at the First Baptist church will start off the graduation exercises for the senior class of '46. Rev. Walter B. Freed will deliver the graduation address. Prior to the ceremonies, Eugene Mauney will give a fifteen minute organ recital. The class will begin the procession promptly at 5 o’clock. Music for the service will be furnished by the NHHP Glee club under the direction of Miss Sarah M. Robinson. Tuesday evening at 8 o’clock, the New Han over High school auditorium will be the scene of the annual class night production, the cast being composed entirely of seniors. This will be for the members of the graduating class and their im mediate families only. On Wednes day evening, 8:30 o’clock will close the three days of graduating exercises with the commencement exercises to be held at the Legion Field. Mr. Hamilton, principal, will deliver the address, and I award the diplomas. Members of! Calvary Baptist Church To Have Special Music John McDougall will sing at the 11 o’clock service this morning at Calvary Baptist church, he has chosen as his selections Kipling’s ' recessional set to music by De- ; CELEBRATING THE SEVENTY-NINTH /ITlay We who wish to serve you well have the pleasure of showing our graduation ^j£)isplay[ SUGGESTIONS; Beautiful Rings fine Watches Sterling Brushes Tie Sets Identifications cigarette Cases Pocket Sets Bill Folds Diamonds Dainty Waiches Bureau Sels Necklaces Fancy Rings Lockels Bracelets Brooches ’Tis Quality, Not Cost, That Counts Sincerely, cfionnet i86j AN Engagement Ring Specialist .^ --7— ■*: * the senior class will take part on the program. At this time the win ner of the Amy Bradley Medal I will be made known, and will re ceive the medal as a prize, for being the most outstanding student in scholastics throughout his school career. The public is in vited to attend this ceremony. It makes you feel mighty good t hear someone cheer for you when your name is called to receive your diploma. Have you noticed a blond-haired boy standing in front of the Post Office with a little camera? Well, come to think about it, who hasn’t been stopped long enough to ac cept a card saying that you have just had your picture made, and where you can get the finished print? This young man is Cecil Looney, and sometimes I think he doesn’t have any feelings for your personal appearance or embar rassment. Maybe you’re just com ing from the dentist’s office and feel as if you could bop the first \ person who even looks at you! straight. And sure enough, he’si going to take your picture. Yes, he does. You accept the card with a smile that summons all your self-control, and stagger off down the street. Or maybe you’re walk ing with your best girl friend’s beau. All the way down the block you pray he won't see you, and you even frown at him as he aims the camera our way. But it doesn’t do any good. He takes the picture anyway, and what’s worse, the boy you’re with decides he’ll get the print. Oh, well! There’s bound to be another girl you can find for a friend But this happens to be a special day in your life. You dress up as if you had just stepped off Fifth Avenue, and stroll down the street, hoping everybody will look at you, or maybe you'll get a whistle or two from the fellas standing around. And there's Cecil. You’re sure he’ll take your picture. He did the day you had been house-cleaning, and had just run down street for a can of wax. As you approach him, you smile your most appeal ing smile, and just ask him to take your picture. But does he? No, he merely smiles back, and turns to take a man who looks as if he has just gotten off work from the shipyard from three days of no sleep or a bath. Oh, well! Such is life. mere are still a few energetic people in this town. Saw Hunter Howard polishing his car this past Friday morning. Sho’ did feel sor ry for him when we all left for the beach! Well, I have succumbed to writ er’s fatigue, and I’m all out of news, so I’ll close. Seniors, be sure to be at church at 4:45 o’clock. Until the first of the week, So long. Koven and More Love to Thee by Doane. At the evening service Mr. and Mrs. Steve Horrell will sing a duet, One of God’s Days, by Martin.
