Code Subberers
Haunt Infirbary
Nose-bag news reports have it
that "codes" are as plentiful at
the Panacea Palace as they are
in the the army, and tho
navy all put together. The tea
kettle and paper sack have lost
no popularity through general
use, and stocks are due for a
rise, since the student health unit
added its new service.
It now brings hometown "code’*
boys together. As an example:
two fellows from way down south
in old Calif., same town, but per
fect strangers met the other day
over the bag, and enjoyed a nice
cold chat. -
Despite the new deal down
stairs, the hospital still wallows
in a slump. Residents now are:
Grace Henry, Norma Dare Tre
varrow, Don Stephens, ^Eaton
Way, and Willis Elliott.
A super publicity group be
cause of its strict membership
qualifications, SDX is getting
in gear for its national conven
tion this winter in New Orleans.
Chief of the organization is Buck
“Titan” Buchwach, pint-sized ver
sion of One-Eyed Connelly and
Flash Gordon.
Buchwach figures that news
papermen are deluged with
photos of this, that, and the other
queen; so why not end the dis
pute with a bona fide selection—
a girl to be picked on photogenic
merit and campus savoir faire,
without political commitments.
Appreciative SDXers are raily

cards at Ed Walker’s ticket office in McArthur
court before 5 p.m. Friday.
But “Across the Alps Lies Italy.” In oher words,
beyond the Cumbeland mountains lay the bigger
world of accomplishments. And so on to Wash
ington, the nation’s capital, went the adventurous
Miss Moore. Following a real ooneert date with
Giovanni Martinelli of the Metropolitan opera, shfl
proeeeded to New York, full of fond ambitions for
immediate success.
Fame, however, was shy, so she went back to»
the dull routine of voice study, stage deportment,
and languages. She paid for these lessons by sing
ing in musical comedies.
She drew crowds to Irving Berlin’s “Music Bo\
Revue’’ after which followed a year of study ia
Europe. Her Metropolitan debut, February 7, l'J28,
starred her in the role of Mi mi in “La Boheme.’*
Each season she has been used, triumph has fol
lowed triumph—Mimi, Mancn. Juliet, Louise, andl
last year Fiora in “Love of Three Kings.”
