TEEN AGE FASHIONS
By Lucy Smith
Hey hepsters.
Get the lowdowns on the lat
est in styles. Reindeer sweaters
have made headlines. These
sweaters can be easily be put to
use in any girls or "dream"
boys' wardrobe. Take for in
stance that yellow and brown
sweater worn by Norman Wall
ace with brown pants . . . hubba
. . . hubba.
There's a new skirt in town
"strictly from the city" grey
wrap-around buckled on the
side with pleats in the back and
it really brings out "my girls'"
waist-line.
Jumpers are with us again.
The form-fitted ones are quite
cute, with a long sleeved blouse.
The boys are really on ithe
"beam" like "lamplighters."
John Singletary sported a neat
camel hair jacket worn with
brown pants and shoes. "Boy,
he looked sharp," but wait let's
not have leave Bruce out who
was togged in a beige and
brown plaid jacket. "Gone with
your bad-self." The men of
Hartford are. beginning to wear
their cardigan jackeas. "Sharp"
Let's hope it will replace drape
jackets.
Yes, dungarees have really
stormed this old city of "ours"
they really look best with rein
deer sweaters or plaid skirts.
So get on and save your skirts
girls and your pants boys, like
you did during the war, and
knock yourself out and rock
some male or female's head.
We have dealt with the
"chicks" wardrobe now we'll
start with- the " squares' '. Boy's
you really don't know how at
tractive you look in a nice shirt
and a tie, and your pants so
well pressed that you could
slice bread on their creases.
Shoes are automatically shined
(as if any one of you didn't do
just that).
Let's sign off with one word
of advice. Look your best and
the world will look toward you.

MY CASTLE OF DREAMS
by Cynthia Washington
I gaze at things around me
And say "Everything is clean",
Then I close my eyes so tightly,
And . I'm off to my castle of
dreams. ,
A beautiful throne is before me ;
I know I must reach it somehow
A pretty bird flies o'er me
And begs me to sit down.
My castle of dreams house these
. things
Wealth, Happiness and Spite,
I must venture into each of
these
To find out which is right.
Now on this throne there are
three buttons
Wealth is the first one. I see
I press it quickly with much
delight
I'm in a room of shining gold
With .mirrors here and there
And if you turn to see the ferns
There are servants everywhere.
I shout with joy which is a
gleeful noise
About all my royalty
I am a queen who is supreme
With wealth and all the rest.
The second button is Happiness
A word we all must find
I push it down so quickly
For Happiness could be mine.
I 'm in a village so small yet fair
Its houses are covered with
vines
The sweetest music floats
through the air
It's a baby's lulaby in chimes.
I was sitting in a yard
With children all around
The many questions they asked
of me
For they knew I was a stranger
in town.
I grew to like all these dear
people
And their quaint old-fashioned
ways
Now if you have your Happiness
You'll live a life of ease. .
Of these three buttons is the
worst of all
Spite is a word of might
It will make you horrid and
cruel
And hold your money real tight.
Now you've been with me in
dreams and gaze upon its
sights
So we must leave the Castle of
Dreams
It's late, so turn out the light.
