Say, Mary Lee, who is it now? Wouldn’t be Donald Y., would it? Say, Charles, who is the cute girl you are after now? Would not be Barbara Y.,, would it? What’s wrong with Peggy Brown and Shirley Mason? I think they are having a hard time with Linda Vance. Twila J. Potter and Clarence make a nice couple. Good luck, kids! Looks as though Clara and Buel, Jr. are going steady.

Looks as if Joyce Compton took our advice and gave Bobby Gish another chance. Hope you two make a go of it this time. Wonder who Delores Potter is waiting for. Couldn’t be Lynn Patrick, could it, Patrick? Wonder who Dorame Stevens has her eyes on. Could it be Donnie Skaggs? Wonder why Truman Sexton keeps coming to Neon. Could it be because of Janice Hansel? Girls! I know another cute boy that’s among our most eligible bachelors now and he goes by the name of Ray Murphy. Get busy, girls. Better open those eyes, girls, because Leon Sergent is on the loose. He’s a cute and real sweet boy. Get to work. Ida Lee Cureton and George Lundy are still the same old way. Hope they always stay that way. Phillip Mullins seems to have some of the girls walking on clouds. Come on, Phillip, and give them a chance. All the girls up here seem to be crazy about Billy W. Ables. The poor boy had better watch his step, huh! Wonder why Wanda Bostain likes Jenkins so well. Could it be because of Burton Arnett? We would like to get something straight, is Judy Sims giving Dewey Spears a hard time or is it the other way around? Anna Ruth Warf, why don’t you break down and give Dickie Quillen a date. He’s really a cute boy. I wonder what went with Jimmy Quillen’s class ring. Couldn’t belong to a girl over at Jenkins could it, Jimmy? I wonder if Daisy Hush will be hearing wedding bells soon after Ernest Lively comes home for Christmas. Wonder if Sandra Skaggs would tell us who her dream man is up here at school. We would like to know, Sandra. Sandra Hope Addington, have you got a crush on James Elkins or is that just gossip?
