some kind of far-fetched story about

seem very popular but mnybo somo

There seems to be less railroading
of elections than usual. In TWO of
the classes there had to bo run-offs
to decide who would represent the
class as favorite.
It might be surprising to know that
Stark ran a close third in tho fresh-
man ballot for favorite. Somehow
slime presidents have a natural way
of being popular.
Horrors! The senior favorite in one
of her many escapades was almost
left stranded when her three boy
friends were almost arrested. In fact
they got as far as the jug and had
to do some tall talking as well as
making bonds to be able to escort
their lady love back to her shelter.

is addressed to Cousin. Of course it
is needless to say that the correspond-

by Collins' sister; but nevertheless
maybe it pays to think of the guys
that make new blood possible Truett.
