' By The Nimble Nlt-Wlts "LATIN" All are dead who wrote it. All are dead who spoke it. All will die who learn it. Blessed death, they earn it. Ysleta Davis thought the Industrial Revolution was a war in Mr. Dennard's Civics class. Martha Price was .seen enjoying a cowboy picture at the Rex. She has earned the name of Buck Price. Has everyone seen the pictures cf Norman Cox in a certain locker in school. We wonder what happened to Howard Buckingham. Tuesday he came to school with two polka dot ties on. In a theme written by Pauline Gregory she stated that she wanted a man five feet and eleven inches tall. Kind of specific, isn't it? Pauline Stewart wants a home loving boy. Arvo Goddard was very aggravated when Mrs. Alexander pronounced his name from the roll, Anna. Beggar: "Have you got enough money for a cup of coffee?" Mr. Cabe: "Yes, I think I'll manage all right." Juanita Thorn was heard bragging about having seen Romeo and Gillette. How to make people hate you: 1. "I don't agree with you at all." 2. "I don't like your friend." 3. "Anybody can do that." 4. "I know better." 5. "I'll tell you exactly where you failed." 6. "I thought you were going to—" 7. "As I was saying." 8. "Let me show you how." 9. "I used to think so a while back.'' 10. "That is nothing but prejudice." —Houstonian. A sensible girl is not so sensible as she looks because a sensible girl has more sense than to look sensible. —The Alabamian. Mr. Boyer: "Yes, quite a number of plants have the prefix 'dog.' For instance the devil-dog and the dog- rose are well known. Can anyone name another?" Mary Elizabeth Hewitt: "Collie- flower." —Quill Weekly. Jazz will endure just as long as people hear it through their feet instead of their brains. John Phillip Sousa, — Tattler. The teachers and students that sit in the rooms on the north side of the school building wish to express their appreciation and thanks to the ones that were responsible for building the new incinerator which is located on the north side of the building. In the past the teachers and students had to endure the smoke and odor from the old incinerator, but with the new arrangement the smoke and the odor are carried away to the top of the building. The cost of the incinerator is estimated to have been about $250. Several New Boys To Try for Tennis Tennis prospects look very favorable for next year. There are many promising boys coming up from Junior high. Hugh Stennis shows much promise of being a net star.

Jack, summarized his plan for permanent peace as follows: "What we need to do in the way of making our United Statc.s a nation which will not only be peaceful but which will be revered by it-s citizens and respected by foreign nations is to understand .other nations, keep a strong enough army to prevent aggression, and to keep our peace by a strict neutrality, showing rio favors to any one nation and endeavoring to understand and appreciate all nations. Our defense must be based on defense of our soil and not on defense of foreign interests. We must have strong neutrality legislation and embargoes on war material;;; war profits must be taxed and munitions industries nationalized. Last, but not least, the freedom of speech and press must be maintained as guaranteed by the constitution to prevent civil strife. If we succeed In all these things, we shall be assured of peace not only for ourselves but for those who are to follow us."

LITTLE HARVESTER REPORTER MAKES NATIONAL MAGAZINE At last one of the Little Harvester cub reporters 1ms broken into big news. A national magazine recently carried a story about a lad, Warren Marten, a senior in PHS. A large picture of him and Kenneth Blackledge appeared in the April 3 issue of the Motion Picture Herald. As you probably know, he was assigned the job of covering the trip that Mr. Blackledge and he made in a covered wagon to advertise "The Plainsman," and to prove to Tex DeWeese, editor of the Pampa Daily News, that men of today could "take it" just as did the pioneers of old. Below is the excerpt from the Motion Picture Herald. "To settle an argument on the staying qualities of the present generation of the he-men in Pampa, Texas, and of course to spotlight attention on the date for "The Plainsman," Manager C. F. Benefiel, of the LaNora in that spot, smoked up a pip of a controversy, with the editor .of the local Daily News that eventuated into featured slant of campaign. First blast in the tie-in was an editorial decrying the lack of pioneers who could live off the country as did the earlier day plainsmen. The editor challenged any male to take a covered wagon on a four-day trip and rough it without outside aid. Journey was to be made with the provisions specified to be taken along at the beginning. The challenge was then taken up by Kenneth Blackledge, Benefiel's assistant and co- instigator of the stunt, who replied in an ad and after another barrage of front page counter accusations, set out on the trip which was to cover 95 miles. The only reservation was that the picture and theatre could not be advertised with banners. In order to keep up Interest among local schools and others in the territory to be traveled, a high school senior in the journalism class was taken along to send in daily reports of progress under his own by-line. Stops were made at schools in each town to distribute heralds and visit the students who had been contacted in advance on the stunt. The paper kept building the stunt which was made more thrilling by progress of the wagon through a series of serious dust storms. Main roads were traveled to bring attention from the many who passed the wagon. Local stations also informed listeners of the journey and outside publicity included pickups on the bally in leading papers in the territory. The finale of the tiein was a parade down the main street of Pampa on the return of the "pioneers." Below is pictured Blackledge, the high school lad, (Warren Martin) and the editor of the paper, PAMPA WINS ' FOUR VICTORIES IN DISTRICT MEET One-Act Play Wins First Place Over Borger High Pampa htgn school Is again the winner of the perennial district -In- terscholastlc League meet.

Some Books Left To Be Sold for $2.25 immediately ' The 1937 annual Is on the press and will be ready for distribution the morning of May 17, says Mrs. Hoi Wagner, faculty adviser of the annual staff.

The 1937 annual will be much more colorful than previous yearbooks. The color innovations will be the biggest and most pleasing surprise about the book, the staff believes. 2. Twenty pages have been added to the book. 3. A new section has been included, though the staff refuses to reveal what it is like. 4. The arrangement of the senior section is changed and improved. 5. All pictures are larger, clearer, and neater as the result of the more attractive setting and better lighting. Heads in group pictures are at least doubled in size over previous annuals and are therefore more easily distinguishable. Group pictures are bust size and so are not made untidy by chairs and rows of feet. 6. Many more pictures are included this year, all sections of the book except the snapshots and the favorites being enlarged. Those two sections have the same number of pages as last year, but snapshots are larger and clearer. 7. The athletic section has a surprise. 8. Much more printed matter will be included than in former years. 9. The paper and binding will be different and of slightly better quality than last year. The staff found the fabrlkoid (imitation leather) cover beyond their budget and so concentrated on improving in every way possible the quality of the book's contents.
