Campus Chatter Wonder what’s Catherine Davis singing since John Henry Sims left, well she can’t sleep for thinking and can’t eat for crying. What are you going to do Hazle Martin since Herman Diggs is in love with Gay Johnson? Elouise Smith and Thomas Reed were really there Friday night, so what, Hazle, you’re out of the , picture. Marvin Riddles is really in love with Mary Jane, so what’s your story Christine? Gladys Pickett and Mamie Brid ges had better move their ducks to another pond because Sgt. Wil lie J. Allen says he’s all out for I Lula Mae Hooker and has no time for them. Why did Elouise L. Brown turn up her nose at Bernice Showers and Lillie Adams Saturday? It must have been because she was with a soldier. Mary Newton is hearing from Richard Bullocks almost every day, so we are beginning to think now she has him. Laura Mae Watkins, Gay Johnson has left Percy Hall out in the cold, so you can pick up where she left off, Winnie Bell. Carlestine McGee you thought you had James Newton but Glos sie Mae Dillon says different. Gertrude Price says she does not have to worry her life about Reed any more as long as Cpl. P. Z. Johnson is in town. Grace Glaring, Mary Charles Gerry and Gladys Coleman don’t have anyone so they are left on the beam alone—it seems every time they get a boy friend some other girl takes him, Jean Ross should know about this because she has Green and Gilmore. Gay Johnson lets it be known that she is all out for L. C. Mor ris and no one else. Mary Jane Cooper and T. L. Gearing are back on the ball. Don’t get too sure of Lucious Turner, Hazel Mae Gray because he is passing notes to a freshman and she is Ruth Johnson. Tessie Gearing and James Ellis are really there, what’s your story Mary Newton. Herman Diggs and Gay Johnson are proving old love never dies, what’s your story Hazle Martin and Irma Pearl Alexander. Who is it Frances Ann Bowman. Lyons, Robinson, Saunders, Buie, Vance or Analyze Brown. From appearance its Rufus Lyons. Johnny Thomas is thrilled be cause Beneal Robinson carried her to the store and bought her cook ies. Irma Pearl Alexander do not worry about the affair between Gay and Herman because you were never in the game. Jessie Mae Calcote says old love never dies she must be talking about her’s and Douglas. Daisy Watkins who is i t, Cpl. Burke or James Williams? What would happen if: Ollie Ruth McGee wouldn’t tell so »,• ♦,« ♦,* #,* #,♦ ♦,* ♦,* »,* V much. If Verna Jean Turner would get hi pped to herself? If Mary Lou Adams was as cute as she things? If Lizzie Dell Levi would act sensible? If Irma Pearl would stop running the freshmen boys down? If Frances Brown would not sleep $o much? Bessena Cook says its alright with her if George Evans does like Earnestine Starworth. Club News The Y.H.A. club held its weekly meeting Wednesday, April 12. The meeting was opened by our chap lain, Mildred Washington. Presi dent Lula Mae Hooker conducted the ineeting as usual; $5.05 was contributed to the Red Cross by the club. The social committee planned ,a pre-Easter social, from which we raised $7.50. Plans were made for the trip to Alcorn College Friday. The financial committee made a fine report. Many inter esting topics were discussed. The Y.H.A. members show a fine club spirit. A large percent of the members enrolled carry on duties of the club. They have participated 100 per cent in all meetings. And as club members, we ask not for rest, but strength to build a larger and better club. Florence Butler, Reporter.
