I Cover The Campus, by Janice Bentley
We wonder if J. W. Vanover likes being high point man. Mary Rodgers seems to like it.
Roy Isaac and Leon Sergent, what is wrong with F-N girls? There’s a lot of them who have their eye on you.
Norma Spence and Charles Creech are being seen quite a bit together. Charlie just won’t settle down.
Carol Richardson, why don’t you be true to F-N instead of going to Jenkins all the time?
Brown seems to be Glenna Cornett’s favorite color.
Betty Herrin seems to like Pikeville College real well.
Betty Holbrook and Omer Champion go together almost like ham and eggs.
Girls, this is leap year so don’t be bashful and ask the boys for a date.
Dewey Spears’s phone is 2006.
Ruby Webb, where is that snowman, or did it turn into a snowball fight, love fight that is, with J.V. Quillen?
There isn’t any use to say anything about Patricia Hileman and Fred Northcutt, Sandra Skaggs and Tommy Shehee, Donna Adkins and Lawerence Khul, for they seen to be okay.
