Today is Wednesday, and that can mean only one thing—another
Teen-age Jamboree is in the making at Lumina on Wrightsyille
Beach. Judging by the enthusiasm shown at the last one, this jajn
boree should be an even greatei success. Featured on the program
will be the one and only teen-age singer of the day, Miss Sarah Anne
Faton. There is no need to list the performances she has given and
repeat the praise she has received, cause all of us have heard her
sing, and know she’* mighty good. Patty Jones will be on hand with
some of that super piano playing, while the Keen-tec-ers will again
furnish the mood music for dancing and listening. Of course Wini
fred Harris* will be present to report the doings of thic ypunger
veneration, so you see, the evening is to be a pleasant one. All you
parents are extended a special invitation cause we want you to see
how much fun a dance and piogram of teen-age talent can be. A
large crowd was there last Wednesday, but let s double and even
trinle the number thi* time. And to do that, we need YOU,_
Miss Janet Volk left this week
end to visit with some relatives in
Massachusetts. She’s going to stay
there till school starts, so if you
miss seeing her around that's wher
she is.
Miss Patty Southerland has left
for Washington and all points north
with her father and mother. Patty
has the most attractive pink felt
belt. It is made of felt flowers and 1
ties in a big bow in the back. She
wore it with a black dress, and
it sho’ did look good.
Happy Birthday
Miss Winifred Harriss celebrated
a birthday this past Monday a week
ago, and as a sort of belated birth- j
day celebration, she had an open
house this past Saturday night.
Most of the fellas who are home
from the Navy were on hand to
help devour the sandwiches and
punch—and fruit out of the punch.
Harry Wellott and Jane Head
were there, accompanied by Miss ,
Sara Jewett, Jane’s cousin, and;
her date. Bill Lassiter who had ar- j
rived home only a few hours be- |
fore the party was there with Mary
Anne Hamilton. And Ed Shain, an
other boy in the uniform of the
Navy was very much there with
one of the outstanding girls of this
season, Mary Anne Jenkins. Dur
ing the course of the evening, the
crowd migrated down to the Trade
winds and got in about an hour
of dancing. Then some of the more
energetic, no names mentioned,
bought, yes, I said bought, a water
melon, and enjoyed it minus all
eating utensils, salt, and manners.
A perfect end to a perfect evening.
Harry Smith who is a member
of the Coast Guard stationed in
Florida is spending a furlough with
his parents. Mr. and Mrs. R. H.
Smith, at their home on Nun street.
Andrew Kure
Imagine my surprise w’hen I
W7as smiled at by an MP in the
Marine Corps just the other day.
But it didn’t stop with a smile.
The boy approached me and spoke.
And, of all people, it was Andrew
Kure, an old Wilmingtonian. He
really looks good in his uniform.
He’s gotten a good tan, and seems
to be enjoying life in general. By
the way, he’s stationed at Lejeune.

Sorry to hear that Durwood Or

ined in a hospital in New Orleans,
ha. He was doing so well in Pass
Christian Merchant Marine Aca
lemy, but he has had to cease his
studies due to the infection. He
s expected home sometime in the
;ery near future. While in the hos
pital. Durwood is visited frequently
3y two home town fellas, Bill
5tewart and Buster Rose.
Patsey Smith
Another Wilmington girl, has
:ome to the front to display her
:alent and loveliness. She’s Miss
Patsey Smith, and shP has recent
ly been signed up as a model ana
magazine cover girl. Patsey was
one of 500 contestants and came out
victorious with the other nineteen
winners. We’re proud of you, Pat
sey, and place your name alongside
Miss Roseanne Lawhorne's, now
Roseanne Dali, who has already
established herself as a model in
New York. Who said the southern
girls were the prettiest in thP U.
S.? Well, whoever it was, they sho'
were right.
Almost a capacity crowd wit
nessed the ball game between the
Pirates and Dunn this past Monday
night. Thp Pirates were victorious
with a score of ten to three. In
cluded in this crowd were Eugene
Mauney and Mac Ayers, who looks
very military in his Navy uniform.
But he’s still the same old Mac.
And that’s okay as far as we’re
concerned.
it just seems tnat you can t keep
a good man down, and from all re
ports, all of our fellas are to be
classed as good men. Recently
John Hearn and Billy Todd, whc
took tests for the Army, came ou1
with excellent ratings, and have
been accepted in the service,
We’ll miss them, but we'll be
mighty proud of them, too.
Help is still needed in compiling
the sea shell collection to be sent
to Wilmington, England, during
the month of August. If you have
any unusual specimens, get in
touch with Sarah Anne Eaton, Mrs,
Cecil Appleberry, or me.
Weiner Roast
In honor of Jimmy McCarl’i
birthday this past Tuesday, a
weiner roast was given at the
Sugar Bowl. It was quite a sur
prise to Jimmy, cause he didn'i
think we knew about the occasion,
There was even a birthday cake
for the celebration, even if it wa:
kind of small. Harry Wellott and
Jane Head, Hooper Johnson and
Helen Codington, John King and
Shirley Williams, Bill Huffman,
Fritz Steljes and Melrose Straughn,
Walter Barnes, Jay Carter, and
the honoree and his date, Jimmy
McCarl and Winifred Harriss, and
Joe Gray and I were there. Oh yes
almost forgot Sarah Anne Eaton an
Gene Montgomery. Dungarees and
plaid shirts were the dress of the
evening, and you know, girls like
Helen and Sarah Anne and Jane
Head sho’ do look cute in them.
We really had a fine time, and —
Happy Birthday, Jimmy.
Well, that about does it for now.
Be sure to be on hand for the Teen
age Jamboree, cause everybody
you know will be there. Until next
time, So long.

WE, THE WOMEN
Here's Your Test, Henpecked Husbands
BY RUTH MILLETT
NEA Staff Writer
A test for the husband who sus
pects he's henpecked:
Do you always spend YOUR
two week’s vacation with HER
relatives?
Do you wear loud neckties,
though you’re conservative by na
ture, because your wife buys them
for you?
Does your wife habitually refer
to "my house” and "my children?’’
Do you dread going home if you
are a half-hour late for dinner?
Do you have to put a paper
under your feet when you stretch
cut on the davenport?
Does your wife automatically
hand you a tea-towel when she
starts to wash dishes?
Do you have to pretend a Sat.
urdav golf-game is something yon
“couldn’t get out of"?
Does your wife call you pet
names in public?
Does your wife frequently vis;:
your office, without an invitation
or a real reason for doing so?
Is Your Wife Curious?
Does your wife ask. "Who tvas
that?” -when you get a telephone
call?
When you impart a bit ot news
at a social gathering, does your
wife say indignantly, "Why,
George, you never told me that!"’
Answer “Yes” to any three of
those questions, and you have
grounds for claiming you're a hen
pecked husband.
