Tattling Tess—
The contest is on between Junior
Denton and Buster Banks — the
prize will be the new chick in
town who lives on Monument St.
We are sorry Buster, but all indi
cations show that Junior is the fa
vored one, however knowing your
way with the fair sex, we can
only sit back and wait.
Fredrick Robinson, now install
ed at Lanier Hi. says that his girl
worries are all over, in fact there
are so many there to suit his fan
cy, that he’s thinking of getting a
secretary to keep his dates straight.
Eddie Robinson says he must
give Gus Polk credit, for knowing
how to pick the kind of chicks
that suit him fine, he says the one
Gus grought to the dance Sunday
night from Canton was a killcr
diller—he says too that Darloan is
alright, but he just isn’t the one
who runs after girls—we wonder.
Wonder what happened to the
Willie F. Catching and Lucile
Catchings’ romance?
wnat could Bates be saying to
Autherine Davis in a letter that's
sofat it takes extra stamps to send
it to Chicago?
It. seems that C. W. Thompson
and Dorothy Truvillion are really
painting the town red.
It was most certainly Velma Grey
clinging to the arms of lady-killer
Ersley Youngblood, Sunday night,
and they both seemed to have been
enjoying themselves.
William Phillip and Lucile
Stubbs were seen together, but he
assures us that there's nothing be
tween them, they’re just friends.

Q. T. doesn’t seem to be as hap
py as we expected him to be after
Ruth’s arrival, could Mary Cross
have anything to do with it?
President seems to be quite a
playboy with all the hep chicks.
Kathleen Smith is just like the
bear's brother Freddie, as far as
Albert Hart is concerned (that’s
what he told us.)
Maggie Ruth and Ruth Milton
are still painting the town red, oh,
but that’s natural for them.
Bo Washington and Dolores Mit
chell are inseparable these fall
days, could this be the beginning
of a new romance? If so, what
about the Piney Woods chick?
Will Beverly doesn’t get around
much any more, what goes on Will?
Willie Mae Jones has finally de

Augustine and Buck have made

retruned from “Chi” lately and re
ported having a good time are:
Lois Jones, Nelsenia Morris, Frank
Robinson, Doris Coleman, Julia Lee
Walker, Olie Mae Taylor, Gladys
Lipscomb and Mary Ann.
It seems that a certain cat from
Tougaloo College is taking a lot of
Lois Jone’s time, eh Scotty?
It seems that a certain somebody
wants to tell the chicks of Farish
street not to blame Emmett Spark
man and Simon Sparkman for
marying, put the blame on the la
dies they married (see)?
