GET OFF THE GROUND
You are not in fashion at the
football games this year if you
stay on the ground, at least no
more than the law of gravity
forces you to in your landings
and take offs. The louder you
yell and the higher you jump
the more fashionable you are in
this man's school.
The ball games this year, if
Mr. McCluney's advice is taken,
should look like.a combination of
a Fifth Avenue fashion parade
and the recreation ground for
the violently insane. In a talk
to the student body before the
first game he told them that the
less they stayed on the ground
the better, and not to stand back
for fear they would appear crazy
because at the coming games it
is perfectly alright to be crazy
at the coming games and also
he said that if anyone had any
new clothes they wanted to show
off just to put them on and come
down and stroll back and borth
in front of the grandstand a few
times. It should be worth the
admission just to see a gorgeous-
ly groomed creature (very com-
posed) stroll past the stands two
or three times then suddenly leap
into the air yelling like a Coman-
che and continue to bounce about
over all unobstructed space.
When attending the games this
year come prepared to not yell
but raise and fly (or at least
jump) so if you suspect frogs
in your family tree bring a cush-
ion for landing purposes.
Girls you are no longer IT if
you sit on the grandstand and
pose for the benefit of all unat-
tached males who wander past, to
be noticed now you must resem-
ble an opera star with St. Vitas
dance so swing it at the game

For TIRED BACKS...
Washing and ironing is hard work. No argument there. Here
is a simple plan that will save labor, money and time.
The home laundry should include a modern washer and ironer.
The housewife, using these two appliances, can finish the
family laundry in half the time ordinarily required and save
hours over a tub or hot, tiresome labor over an ironing board.
The cost to wash and iron an average family laundry is about
fifteen cents for electric service.
With a modern ironer you can sit down and take it easy.
Your sole part in ironing is to feed the clothes into the ironer!
No lifting, pressing or standing for hours. The machine does
the ironing, even to dress shirts and pleated skirts.
We will be glad to demonstrate home laundry appliances and
explain how little they cost per month in easy payments.
For a limited time we are supplying a set of double tubs or a
water softener free with each washer or ironer. Prices as low
as $59.95 payable $5.00 down and monthly payments to suit.
