I cover the campus

Those wedding bells are really breaking up the old gangs. Some more newlyweds are Janice Anderson and Gary Bailey, Shirley Anderson and Alfred Adams. Nancy Warf and Donnie Manning are back together. We wondered why she looked so happy. Some couples that are off the “Steady List” now are Janet Young and Ronald Polly, Wanda Bostain and Can Bentley. Hazel Quillen is still wearing Harry Smith’s class ring. I doubt if anyone else will ever have a chance now. Carol James seems to be popular now days, especially with a certain freshman, a team basketball player. Did you have fun, Carol? It seems that Sonja Haxes’s record with Carters Little Pills has run out. She has settled down with one boyfriend, Delmer Cook. Can Bentley, Rusty Combs and Sharon Riddle just can’t decide who should wear his silver football. Good luck to both of you.

Notice: Parky Kincer and Tyrone Bentley were sipping soda at Tuckers’ the other night. Marlene Robbins and James Elkins are seen together quite often. We predict that Miss Holbrook will win Mr. E. Banks!!! “V” for victory, Miss Holbrook. Will Patsy Collier forget the boy at the other end of Kentucky and give someone else a chance? Shelby Webb likes tall, dark, and handsome boys. Wonder why she is always getting the boys’ names confused with “Bruce?” Who is calling Derrilene Short three times a night, we may add it is a masculine voice, too. Ruby White seems to like Whitesburg boys, doesn’t she?
