Just where this picture belongs can not be set definitely. Primarily it
must have been intended for the Activities but as Loyce Creager says, accord-
ing to the way some of the girls spread out, they must have been trying to
qualify as full back on the Football Squad: in that case it should be in Ath-
letics. Helen Butler was evidently trying to look beautiful and so it rightly
belongs in Vanity Section but since Pauline and Bessie Mae can not qualify
for that section, we gave up the idea. Our next was a gushing inspiration
to put it in Societies but as Miss Schober felt her picture did not do justice to
her beauty, she said that she preferred it in a less conspicuous space. After
long deliberation and ponderous thought we at last concluded that the only
place to stick the long-talked-of picture was in Burro Kicks but hopes failed
us when our eyes caught sight of the dark dress-surely no one was in mourn-
ing, but, yes, there was Neva Love with her arms folded and a most
despondent look upon her face. However, all else considered, Thelma McBrayer
says the picture is a scream and all screams go in to give life a kick: therefore, we
have placed the picture in the Joke Section and base our action on the following:
Clara Belle Lyles is free from fright--such an unnatural state.
"Thelma Pittman's eyes are plainly searching for Freddie.
We can't endure Evelyn Bryan's enticing look.
Elizabeth Butler looks like a tall weed between two roses.
Helen O'Neall and Millie Ferris,both in full bloom
Ruth and Naomi-remember your Bible-should not be cutting their eyes and throwing daggers
to the left.
Lucile Herring and Shirley Logsdon look so sisterly, a fact that hitherto had escaped our eagle
Will Elizabeth Cranford become a vampire-where is the Girl of Yesterday?
