    TRI.. JAN. 18. 1957
Well here we are again.
Hope you had as pleasant a
vacation as I had. I thought
this time that I would wander
around and find out just what
you dear little kiddies thought
of Elvis. So just to give you an
idea of what I found I wrote
it down. Here it is:
Pat Brewer "I like to
hear him, but I don't like to
watch him."
Lani Knox "Oh, he'll do!
Bev Hakes "I don't like
him that's for sure!"
Carol Gandec "MMmm!"
Sally Lane "MMmm, I
like him."
Jeannie Bjorlie "I like
some of his songs, but I hate
to watch him."
Mr. Wright "Oh he sings
all right as long as you don't
watch him."
Joyce Raphorst "I think
he's stupid and I don't appreci
ate his actions!"
Steve Morrill "I'm get
ting tired of him."
Annette Drager "He gives
me a pain."
Judy Johnson "I like his
music, in fact I go ape over it,
but I don't like him!"
Dale Olson "Oh, he's
real spastic!"
Dean Root "Every day's
Thursday for him."
Wayne Collum "UGH!!
Leland Hartwcll "I like
to hear him, but I don't like
his dance."
Gary Holman "He acts
like a spastic! And he needs a
Al Hartwcll "I don't mind
him, but I don't like him."
Eddie Gibson "I don't
mind his singing."
Mrs. Taylor "UGH!"
Barbara Johnson "He re
minds me of a sissy, and he
needs a haircut."
Vic Lively "Nothin"."
Bob Barger "He's O. K.
and I like his singing real
Larry Nortridgc "Wah-hoo-he-he-ha!"
Karen Engle "He's all
right but he needs a hair cut."
Mr. Smith "I like his
singing but he has a neurotic
twitch end a bobbing Adam's
apple that I don't like.'
Jo Taylor "I think he
Jack Eberhart "I think he
Mr. Green "I think that
there are 2 2-legged animals
in this world that need to be
done away with; he's one and
Marilyn Monroe is ,the other

he's a drip!"

Boys beware! There is a das
tardly new scheme afoot by
these relentless females. If you
call a gal for a date and she
says she can't go but has a girl
friend who might be able to,
you'd better hang up. Or if you
have a strong heart and think
you can suffer the consequenc
es, go ahead and call but
don't say I didn't warn you!!!
Just what is the matter with
you, D. M.? You have to chase
him madly through the hall,
pull him out of closets, and
watch him constantly to keep
him from getting away just
to take his picture! He must
have a guilt complex, yeh, that
must be it,
How did you kids like Bill
and the others on Platter Par
ty? I think it's pretty nice to
have a program with our own
kids contributing to it. It mak
es it a program that's even
more Ashland's.
Didja hear about Mr,
Wright? The other day in first
period study hall he bawled
out Mia Raphorst and Judy
Fader for passing notes. Judy
said, "Mr. Wright we aren't
passing notes, we're playing
Canasta and I was just handing
Mia a card." Mr. Wright
(blushing furiously), "Oh, par
don me!"
Kids in third period Spanish
must have a real rough time.
One little guy dashed madly to
the door, slipped and slid half
way across the floor on his
side just to beat the tardy
bell! Easy, Mr. Apodaca!
, Seotty, why don't you raffle
off the junk in your locker to
get a little extra money? Last
lme I looked there was an
odd assortment of books, lots
of no-good paper (kept for the
sentiment), one pencil with no
lead in it, a dry ink bottle, one
mouse (kinda dead and dried,
but nevcr-thc-less a mouse),
and to top things off, a bathing
suit! No klddln,' that gal's got
collection that would put a
first-class junk collector to
shame. Forgot to mention her
three-legged spider, one leg got
mashed off under her econ
book, the others just fell off
with age.
This old typewriter can't
spell or type right. Maybe it's
just that it can't keep up with
my tremendous speed all of
15 words a minute. Boy, you

I'm trying to go too fast?
Got your snowshoes on?
This ice and snow's Just too
slick. "If I Go Reeling" should
be the AHS theme song in this
type of weather. You know
what, someone should invent
some snowchains for human
beans. They could be designed
in jewel tones to match or har
monize with your outfits or
blended especially to match
your complexion. Steadies
could swap one chain on,

for trying!
Tests, tests and more tests!

the last answer done, your
