PAGE FOUR— THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, Texasj Wednesday, April 1/J942 Ola!n4343 for The Avo(oneti«-Journol Offict» By Margaret Turner I N nearly all parts of tlie earth there exists a day which cor- rasponds to : our April Fool's day. It is a day consecrated to the playinp, "-of practical jokes on friends and neighbors, ?ending them r-n fools' errands and tricking them into doing ludicrous things'." The origin of this day of practical joking is much disputed. This rhyme, found in "Poor Robin's Almanac" for 17CO, is as (rue today as it was then: The first of April, some do say Is set apart for All Fools' day; But why the people call it so Nor 1, nor they themselves, do know. * * * rpHERE is a popular French •*- story concerning the 1st of April. It concerns Francis, Duke of Lorraine, and his wife. They . escaped from captivity at Nantes one April 1, dressed as peasants. The;' -tarted off boldly, but someone',, tected the disguise and ran aheat* <o warn the sentries. As it was the 1st of April the sentries merely laughed and cried si their informant, "Polsson d' avril!" and the pretended peasant escaped. » » * CHINESE ELMS M RS. Clyde Burleson, 2207 Seventh street, has 2 dozen Chinese elms she wants to give . away. N' HOLLYWOOD EASTER O one will be getting up in the wee small hours in Hollywood Sunday to attend the far-famed Sunrise Service because the Army has ruled out large audiences. The radio will fill in with the usual service. However the actresses are planning wardrobes because war and high water couldn't cut the importance of that. But it is said this will be a less pretentious and less gaudy year. . As with Miss Average America so will it be with the movie stars No one-shot costumes to be worn Easter day alone for one appear" snce and forgotten. The Easter garb of 1942 is just part of, the spring wardrobe and bought with an eye to practicality and Ion wear. * * * •'ij-vi 1 . AYRES, OBJECTOR ' /7VF the sincerity of Lew Ayres in '• .Vcj refusing to take up arms for .':nis country and preferring to r spend the duration in a camp fo: .-•jrefigious objectors we have m '\dpubt. If you read his siatemen "•: in ^Tuesday papers you noted tha ''ihe decision shows thought. • '..^However, we prefer the philo sophy offered by Bishop Ivan Le, Holt who at noon Tuesday salt people cannot find God fay run rung away but by facing the re sporisibilities and dangers of th times. Greater peace results from doing ones duty to God and country than by rinding a quiet place where one will not be subjected to dangers and problems, said the Miss Winona Chancy To Wed Erode Puckett In Easter Day Ceremony — • church. 4 p.
