THE PASSING PARADE
By Noll Sewcll
toward the sourco of higher learning.
Well folks hold everything. I
have news that will thrill you to a
peanut. Next week you will see tho
concluding chapter of tho Famous
Continued Story. And what I mean
it will be somo conclusion. Tho edit-
or has promised mo tho front pngo
for the piece of art and I guarantee
it will suit you to a T. So got your
hnlr on end and wait to seo the fin-
ishing of tho greatest love-mystery
story ever written.
Tho mixed double tennis tourna-
ment would bo n howling succcs if
tho players could get their minds on
I'll havo to admit that tho play
"Laff That Off" is tho best that has
been put on in tho auditorium during
my term here. It was really good.
Thcro could have been no better cast
chosen as I see it. Every actor knew
his lines and the whole thing was
easily worth fifty cents. Next timo
it is put on don't miss it
I understand that tho love scenes
wcro stripped of samo of their asth-
matic conditions but the practices
were lots of fun. Now I ask you is
It docs my heart good to see the
Cowgirls and Gib at it again. That
just goes to prove there is some ole
Stmfite still left in the institoot
Whenever those two factions get
going against each other it is a bat-
tle well worth watching and hearing.
Only ten days more of tho hilarious college life which for four years
they have enjoyed remains for the one hundred four seniors that will June 4
receive tho certificate mat concludes ineir nappy siay on me aimmuns cum-
pus. In receiving the diploma from their alma mater they will realize
a dream that has been foremost in their minds for twelve long terms. Yet
coming with the certificate is a feeling of sadness to each receiver. To
him it means that he is no longer a "Stude of Olo S. U." Never again will
he be a part of the institution that for four years has been his home the
place where the dearest friends of lifo havo been met. No more will he
assemble in the class room with the group that as "Slime" Sophomore
then Junior and Senior he was associated. There is indeed a cause for this
As they silently descend from the stage of the university auditorium
on the morning of June 4 they will become a part of the never ending
parade that began at the first graduation of Simmons thirty odd years ago.
Life thereafter will take on a different outlook. The happy carefree
collegian will soon become one of the mighty mob scrambling and slaving
with one intention; to satisfy that secret desire ambition.
But before tho gates have closed behind this recent installment of the
steadily moving parade let us pause to wish them Health Luck and Happi-
ness and invite tiicm back to our school their school ; frequently.
And Y P. is not going to bo with
us next year. Thcro is another ole
Simmons tradition going up In smoke.
Tho school is changing too fast to
Billy Boy's Poctrlo;
She raved shouted nnd tore her hair
And broke up showcases everywhere
Hollered "Big Bly you get set
Next time you ask 'Is tho mall up
And Grace is bock in the bookstore.
She reports that she actually taught
several students something and she
wouldn't tell what. Captain burn
And Earl is going to got married.
I speck thcro will bo several others
feel tho call along toward June. Let
JUNE 4 EXERCISES WILL
BE FINAL FOR 147

The Weekly Love Story
It was along toward ten thirty at
night a Sunday night. Tho moon was
out bright and the warm zephyrs
from tho South set the stogo just
right for LOVE. A couplo could be
seen hiding lnsldo tho hedge of 'the
cemetery on the campus. Why they
were there only Dan Cupid could tell.
But what better place cculd be asked
for loving purposes than insido the
hedges and under the dense trees.
During a lull in the assigned work
tho couplo were aroused by footsteps
on a sidewalk next to them. The two
under tho tree held their breath and
prayed not to bo discovered.
Tho other couplo cased along until
in tho dark shadow of the tree and
the boy paused drawing tho girl to
him. "Lets wnit here Baby." "Aw.
naw you know this is dangerous and
besides I don't like it." Anyway to
make a short story shorter they
stopped and went into that famous
fifteen mlnuto clinch. During tho
panting sccno the fellow inside the
hedge reached out and touched the
other boy on tho shoulder. There
was a scream and a sound of thun
dering hoofs as tho young man left
his lady love standing in her shoes
and hit for tho high timbers. As yet
ho has ot been heard from but somo
farmers near Anson report n small
tornado passed along tho road some
tlmo during Sunday night. ''Ain't
Economical and Convenient
That Famous Continued Story
All the ltttlo folk smcllcd tho fire
but the bad dog didn't even mind. It
seemed at first that tho Insurance
would cover all but some feet stuck
out regardless. I wasn't there two
minutes until it seemed my eyes
would burn out.
Tho bad man screamed out In a
snort that could be heard for several
blocks "So It is you eh." And tho
old lady looked under her bed nnd
with a shout of triumph dragged
tho beggar from under tho stove with
the kind and tender words hissed in
his cars "Who mo?"
Moral: Walt till next week for the
greatest conclusion of all.

And the Cowgirls substituted a trip
to the Gap for one to the Cavern.
It is funny how well pleased some
girls arc. However when you take

It was worth the whole golf tour-
nament to see little Chesty Smith
got put out However it was more
or less a battle between two chestics.
I just can't wait for summer school
to open and watch the old maid school
teachers flock in. They tell me it
is just like a pageant "The Change
of Times" when they start trooping
