Bits of News Coming Events Social Calendar By VYilma D<Mi(las Courier -S'ews Slaff Writer A Blyilievllle girl, whose first Bailor writing was noted while she was n junior high school when she was le only soul brave enough to finish serial story slatted by two lads 1 their own private publication, will x (he big chief on the "Dally Reville", the student publication at ouisiana State University, this ear. Miss Anne Weedman, to be a senor student a! L.S.U. this year, ap- lied for the position of managing ditor. but the publications board ook a look at her application and review ol her past work, threw out he application, and made her ditor. Miss Weiyjmaii first acquainted ic L.S.U. campus with her abili- ies last year, after she transferred Texas Slate College for Worn- I n. Being named the outstanding I ransfer student was a surprise to | o one but Miss Weedman. She had been a junior editor on the "Gum- the university annual; a mem- jer of Thela Sigma Phi, recog- iizing women journalists, and apped for Mortar Board, an organization for outstanding senior women, and her name had constantly been before the student body for tier work in the "Reveille." Her accomplishments at L.S.U. in one year were preceded by a field of activities in Blytheville High School and at T.S.C.W. in Dcnton, where she was enrolled only two weeks before she was selected as a candidate for the freshman class president. During her career at the Texas school she was elected president of Alpha Lambda Delta, honorary freshman women's organization, named as a sophomore councilor. and was vice-president of the journalism club. And— she had a grade point average that rubbed noses with the perfect mark— 2.5 out of a possible three. In Texas she was associated -with tile Texas High School Press Association, worked for the College News Bureau, was radio editor for the Daily Lasso, and was on the Freshman Writers' Program, an annual event, recognizing creative writing. The Daedalian, a literary quarterly, also published frequent articles with the familiar "Anne Weedman" by-line. In high school it was the same old story— president of this— vice president of that . . . active in ev- . . erything. There was the Red Pep- Miss Anne AVcedman t • * per presidency, llw National Honor Society, the Quill and Scroll, Beta Club, the student council for four years, and her work on the "Chickasaw," She was winner in the Scholastic .Magazine's annual state contest for feature writing, too. Perhaps Miss Weedman owes her decision to lake up writing seriously to Max B. Reid, president of the Blytheville School Board, who presented his son, Jere. with a miniature printing press for Christmas years ago. It was in the publication that Jere and Don Ohamblin had to call for help in unravelling an ending, or at least another in stallment for their serial story Anne came to the rescue and won a free subscription to the paper she was the only entrant. In 1916 she graduated, 'and atte giving Blytheville a taste of hei tal 1 ents she started in Texas, finishei that in two years, and then hit Lou isiana. If time holds out—and i should (she's only 21> she'll prob ably give the other 45 states some thing to talk about. During her summer vacation sh has been everything from vice presi dent of sharpening pencils and emp lying waste baskets to society edi tor at the Blytheville Courier New and while in Baton Rouge sh worked part time as a reporter fo the State Times.

Mr. Smith asks irritably. Mrs. Smith scarcely hears her husband's protest. She's heard them often It doesn't sink in any I more. I And so the Browns atid the Smiths get together for another mutually boring evening. Why? well, because Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Brown arc socially lazy. Tlie couples have known e^ich other for .several years. The only effort it takes for them to be- together is for the husbands to brace lliemselves for anolhcr one of "those evenings." And Ihcy had ;i liltle In common once, even If it was nothing more than thai boih couples were newcomers and kimw- I«B each other gave them both a feeling of belonging just a litllc. B » I that's dangerous business, burdening a marriage with friends who nfen't in any way stimulalmg, entertaining, or fun to be with. A smart wife doesn't shrug off icr husband's protect. She t for what il is a danger signal. Wife Slionl.l Gd Itusy It's a signal that she Is hilling doxvn on her Job of making llicir •oc-ial life give'them something, instead of being n burden to them. If her husband is bored with tile Hi-owns, w h y i n the woi Id ihould Mis. Smith Inflict them on him week after week? Maybe she rmi't, off-hnnd Ihlnk of any couples he does enjoy. Bui '( she can't, then she should yet busy broadening <k \eir social circle. A tot of women seem to have a greater tolerance for boring people and boring evenings Ihnn Ihelr hus- b.inds have. But that's not good. It's dan crous. Just because the wife doesn't mind suffering her time on dull people and wasted evenings, i t doesn't mean she ought lo subject her husband to them if he isn't cmially tolerant. If Ihe Browns bore him, then Hie wife ought lo look around for n couple lo lake tlieir place, n couple who won't be boring. A married 'couple needs Ihe slim- ulalion-of interesting friends. And If the wife doesn't realize that, In lime her husband may not only find Ihe Drowns dull company—but his wife as well. Cuban Army Has Shake-up in Top Ranks of Brass HAVANA, G'nba. All". 24.
