THE GRASS BURR
LATIN CLUB SPONSORS
A series of pie sales have been
sponsored by the members of the
Junior Classical League. The pies
were contributed by the first and
second year classes.
Because of illness of the sponsor,
Mrs. Babb, the Latin Club banquet
has been postponed until May 7.
Plans are being made for a program
to be given at that time. Further
plans include a pie sale to be spon-
sored by the ex-Latin students.
MRS. CRICKET B. SHANKLE
SPEAKS TO HOME EC. GIRLS
“There are unlimited possibilities
for girls in the field of Home Econo-
mics”, said Mrs. Cricket B. Shankle,
county home supervisor, Farm Se-
curity Administration, in her talk to
the Home Ec. girls, Tuesday, April
23. Mrs. Shankle told the girls that
home economics was valuable not
only for a housewife but could be
a career or profession for some as
home demonstration agent, hospital
dietician, and others.

IN STEP WITH OUR STYLES
Flash!! This is Station W-H-S
broadcasting for the first time since
its wonderful vacation and trip
through Carlsbad Caverns.
Top of the list of fashions were
slack suits worn by most of the
girls. A black slack suit was worn
by Hazeldean Hibbard, a green one
by Margie Winstead, and a blue one
by Ann Stewart.
Pedal pushers were worn by Jane
Powell, Maureen Roach, Melvern
Pearson and Martha Shelby.
T-Shirts were popular also, being
worn by Coy Nell Evans, Betty
Wright and Louise Long.
Many new Easter frocks were
seen at the Easter services. Black
and white suits were worn by Gwen
Wickens and Ann Stewart. Jane
Powell wore a low necked plaid
blouse and black skirt, and Maureen
Roach wore a rose gabardine dress.
Betty Wright’s leather jacket was
just the thing for that trip. Every-
one just envied her.
Nellie Phelps and Norma Brown
wore their nylons—whee what nerve
—the rest of us are afraid to touch
ours even at home.
Bathing suits were also very pop-
ular even though it was a shade cool.
Vivian Browder, Jane Powell and
Gwen Wickens wore theirs.
Gwen was also seen wearing a
lo-o-ow neck white blouse and blue
gathered skirt with tiers of white
Norma Fain looked really super in
her pink and blue plaid gingham
dress topped with pink linen. Ma-
rilyn McCleskey wore a brown and
white checked gingham dress trim-
med in white embroidery.
Jamye Murry looked like a spring
chicken in her white coat dress, and
tan barefoot sandals. Speaking of
sandals, they are “just the latest
thing”, kids wearing them are Bet-
ty Pittman, Ann Stewart, Jamye
Murry, Nellie Phelps and Betty Da-
Until next time W-H-S wishes
you the latest in spring fashions.
Adam and Eve On a Raft!!
Everyone seemed to be unusually
hungry at one of the festive after-
noon snacks at Creamland! We first
ordered from the little red-haired
waitress—nothing happened; there-
fore the plebes turned the same or-
ders in again to the chef—nothing
happened!! In sheer desperation we
called on good ole’ dependable Tiny!
All at once hamburgers began fly-
ing right and left but somehow we
managed to talk our way out with
only one. “All’s well that ends well
and besides we only had fifteen
cents a piece.
Trials and Tribulations of Marriage!
The cutest lil’ married couple ev-
er is attending ole’ W. H. S. They’re
Imogene and Hoyt Watkins. Course
matrimony is a bit confusing when
mixed with English IVB and civics,
but all’s fair in love and school!
There was the time she left a door
open and the next day Hoyt sported
a lovely black eye. Then the apricot
fried pies that got boiled and the
rice dish with the whole salt shaker
mixed in; however, life can be beau-
tiful! Good luck to a couple of swell
Cactus, Desert and Prairie Dogs!
It seems as though Betty Lee and
Betty Pittman were having a horse
race in the vicinity of Carlsbad
when somehow they became separa-
ted. Betty Lee’s mount must have
been in the habit of plowing for im-
mediately he headed for the under-
brush. Well everyone can’t have
good luck—anyway, in a few seconds
all that was visible were cactus, des-
ert and prairie dogs. Needless to
say, she was completely and hope-
lessly lost, however, when High Low
Goldy filled his lank sides with sage
brush, he politely "ambled over the
hill and on to the road. Except for
a healthy heart failure our rider is
doing quite well!!

and Mr. Borden Seaberry talked
about law as a profession. It’s sure
there was much “food for thought”
in all the talks.

We were certainly lucky to re-
ceive those old editions of the Grass
Burr. It was certainly interesting to
find out when it was started and
why it was called the Grass Burr.

It was really nice of the Weather-
ford College to invite the seniors for
lunch and an afternoon of activity.
And just think, seniors, Friday is
Senior Day—more fun.

What a cute program the sopho-
mores gave last week. It was very
original and everyone seemed to en-
joy it. Just shows what a good so-
phomore class we have.

The senior class has really raised
the money—$346.07. Not bad I’d say.
That means a mighty swell gift to
leave good old W. H. S.

Folks, this is next to the last edi-
tion of the Grass Burr. Oh weep,
weep. Don’t forget to get your last

Best I sign off until next time.
That’s all the news and views I
have for now. So until then—be
good and study hard (ha—who do
I think I’m kidding?) P. S. Here’s
hoping everyone made good grades
on his six weeks exams and on his
