Danny Lucas, we see you look happy these days. Could it be because of Lavonia Morgan?

Pat Sturgill, we hear you will hate to see graduation come. Why? Could it be because all the good-looking boys will be graduating?

Cleta, don’t you know you are supposed to say “Yes” sometime? Don’t let Winston be a bachelor the rest of his days. Go ahead, we know it’s the real thing.

Well, Maurleen, will you be wearing more than the engagement ring after school is out? Good luck to you and Colan.

Have you noticed it seems to be the real thing for Jackie Walker and Gerald? Good luck.

Hey! Judy Wright, we hear you are getting letters from Germany, could it be by Paul Pike?

Paul Prince, the Kat would like to know why the band trips aren’t so interesting any more. Could it be because Michael Bentley and Barbara Yinger are going steady?

Why did Pebble have such a good trip? Could one reason be Elman Blair.
