Stop, Thief--
"Take this pad back where yo stole it, you scum," was the emphatic language that greeted a staff member when she was innocently reaching for a sheet of heading paper to nibble on last week.  But someone (?) evidently thought this bit of warning was necessary, as the pad has been seen traveling about from hand to hand through the school.
Auld Lang Syne--
At the close of school each year, sentimental seniors bring forth their memory books to be autographed by their teachers and fellow classmates.  And this year is no exception in the Rockdale high school.  Have you seen that big book of Ina Mae's and the one Doris has with so many amusing pictures in it?

But the real laughs are in Bernadine's book, where several Spanish students, with a very experienced air, wrote in the real "Espanol".
What!  No Fish on Friday?--
Is there an epidemic of spring fever among our fish?  At least, indications point that way, for we didn't hear them practicing last week for the usual chapel program.  Something seemed lacking Friday without their chatter on the stage.  'Smatter with our fish?
"Request the Pleasure"--
We hear that, contrary to earlier report, the sophomores are finding it possible to postpone previous engagements, and lend the glitter of their presence to the dance following the junior-senior banquet.
This will, no doubt, be a great relief to the juniors, who seemed for a while to fear that some of the sophs might not be able to get off on that night.
Well, a merry time is a merry time, and as 'It" seems, will be had by ALL.
Junior Tennis Club has Lawn Party Wed., May2--
The Junior Tennis Club, sponsored by Miss Ruth C. Kirk, was entertained with a lawn party Wednesday night, May 2, at the home of Virginia Lee Baxter.  Thirty-five members were present.  The usual children's lawn games were played.  Refreshments of candy, cookies, soda water and suckers were served.

Miss Fitt: Advice

Q. Dear Miss Fitt: Would you settle an argument for us?  We have been discussing were the best place is to hold the world's fair.  Please give us your opinion.  We Wonder
A. Dear We Wonder: The best place to hold the world's fair is around the waist.  Miss Fitt

Q. Dear Old Fittsy:  Well, I've got to hand it to you.  You certainly did our history class a lot of good by talking so loud out on the campus that Mr Dennis couldn't conduct the class.  I know it was you because the person talking wasn't saying anything.  Gratefully yours, Honor Student
A: Dear Mr. (or Miss) Honor Student:  I wish to inform you that I was out of town at the time you mention so you are evidently mistaken.  Besides, I wasn't talking loud.  Yours in a whisper, Miss (Not Fittsy) Fitt

Birthday Biographies
Bonnie Mae Cunningham, senior, Birthday May 12.

"Count that day lost whose low descending sun views from they hand no worthy action done."

Although Bonnie Mae claims she has no use for studying or work of any kind, we think perhaps she is kidding us, for rumor has it that she is really a good book-keeping student.

Despite the fact that Bonnie Mae is most secretive about her private affairs, we think that she especially enjoys movies, and strange as it seems,, her pet dislikes are sports, spinach, and Spanish.
Alex McLeod, senior class president, was selected by his classmates Friday, May 4, to receive the $60 scholarship offered by Draughon's Business College.

The scholarship was offerd by the college to the person elected by the class to receive it, instead of awarding it to one of the honor students of the class, as is customary.
