Well, she has heard so much and seen so much and some one has told her so much until she can’t publish all of it. She is just wondering what would hap , pen if more news than gossip , would come to her for publication. Listen Eva Hart, the Tiger heard some one say that you were getting to be mighty fast. Is it because your are running with Ella Wat son? i Ruth Wallace we understand that > you and Alexander Hickman are really building a starway to the stars. Is this really true? Bessie Ford is receiving plenty of air mail specials "from Pvt. Charles R. Sheriff. Could it mean that wedding bells will be ringing : soon? The Tiger wonders did Marion i Jackson really say that Albersteen Tilman is the only star that shines in his blue heaven. Some one told the Tiger that Bessie Willis said that Samuel Cole is her all day study and her mid night dream. Well, little lady you ■ better start studying and dreaming nK/Mif : r _ j_u - ~ ~ V-lOV, IX J uu t want to end up at Whitfield. Somebody heard a loud laugh that sounded very ridiculous Tues ■ day, as some of the Jim Hill stu dents were going to the cafetria. I You can just bet it was Ella Wat 1 son for one. Guess she thought no i one saw her. I Can anyone tell the Tiger just ; what would happen if Samuel Bingham * would stop walking around in the room calling people by their nickname? Well, Jif Wallie J. Foggy would stop acting loud in class and stop trying to boss maybe someone would pattern after him. Eighth grade section three would be almost a perfect class if Louise Lundy would act intelligent some times. Well, Louise we are sorry to learn that you never act intelli gent but you really have a pal in Ella Watson. The Tiger notices that Florida Morris, Gladys Robinson and Jua nita Haygood have made marked improvement in their deportment and seem to be acting very much like ideal girls. Girls we wonder if you three can’t influence Ella Watson and Louise Sunday to make some improvement before it is too late. Dorothy Chrisler is very down hearted since her friend left for California. We hope he will re turn soon. So cheer up Dorothy. Edward Banks did you get angry because your and Bessie Lee Eaton names were i nthe Tiger. Well, sorry you are not like Peter Smith. He wants his name in it every week. What would happen if Peter would stop running at Delorise? What would happen if Carolyn, Emma, and Maxine would attend to their business, if Willie would stop waiting for Jennie every day. Well, children The Tiger is sor ry that all the news can’t be pub lished this week. Paper has gone to war you know. Flash! The Tiger has out a scent commission that is watching ev erybody very closely so you better watch your deportment if you dont want the Tiger to talk about you. Mind how you talk, ho wyou laugh and how you act, see. NOTICE! TO ALL READERS: There will be a charge of $1.00 to run all cuts or mats in The Mississippi Enter prise.
