Upon Mr. Monty's twisting his head queerly, Louis Rinn inquired: "Have you water in your ear?"
Mr. Monty: "No, I've a crick (creek) in my neck."

Dorothea Lee after listening to one of Mr. Laurence's lectures on "How to Increase the Milk Flow" asked: "How long would you have to beat a cow to make her give whipped cream?"

It is understood that a certain family in Cameron is blessed with twins. Both being boys, they were named "Pete" and "Re-Pete." We wonder if, had they been girls, they would have been burdened through life with names of "Kate" and "Dupli-Kate?"

Mrs. Gillespie, in English class: "Leroy, what tense is 'I am beautiful'?"
Leroy:    "Pretense."

Edna Kirk:   "Did you ever hear the story of the 'Golden Fleece'?"
Kate:    "No, did they bite?"

Willie Brown: "What's   on   your mind?"
Willie Mae Clampet: "Thoughts."
Willie: "Treat them kindly; they're in a strange place."

Miss Estell: "Little boy did you fall down in your Sunday .pants?"
Little boy: "Yes ma'am, I didn't have time to take 'em off."

Cleone Sikes (speaking to Mayes Sparks): "You don't chew tobacco do you, little boy?"
Mayes: "No, ma'am but I can give you a cigarette if that'll do."

Mrs. Monty (wishing for a $25 hat): "I cook and cook and what do I get? Nothing."
Mr. Monty: "Well, I declare you're lucky, I always get indigestion."

Lois Dyer: "What were those blood curdling yells I heard at your home last night?"
Miss Brightman: "Oh, Mr. Wilkerson was just quieting Nancy Joe; you see he can't sing a note so he was giving some college yells."
