|The Office Cat
You've no idea what discrimination there is in the Herald office. Mrs. Boss and Carolyn have no difficulty whatsoever in attending social events whenever they wish, but what happens when I try to keep up with my social life? I receive sharp reprimands and threats of horrible punishments. Truman should hear about this.
We have a new piece of equipment in the office. No one knows exactly what it's for, but it looks like a cage to me. The boss says he had it built to put obstreperous employees in (I wonder who he means) and Junior Harvell hopes we are going to get some canary birds. My idea is to put people who ask questions in it. One other explanation of the purpose of it, is that we are planning to get a tribe of monkeys to do all the work. Don't be surprised if you receive a Herald some week in ape language.
The above picture of me shows me trying to get my fan mail out of one of those new fangled post office boxes with the combinations. I have a cousin, a safe cracker from Frisco, who'd certainly come in handy around here. He's not available at the moment however, being temporarily at work for the government at Alcatraz.
Have you seen the girls' team play softball? That is a sight to behold. The next day after a practice, you can see them walking around very cautiously, trying to keep those sore and stiff muscles from hurting. (Note to team: despite all my heckling, I really think you play very well. NOW will you stop threatening me with that bat?)
You readers really hit the jackpot in last week's paper, my picture was in it twice. In additon to my regular front page spot, a portrait of me also appeared at the head of the classified column on page seven. The boss should have known better than to leave that hole in the page when I was around. The cut just exactly fit, too.
Come Tuesday, it's election day again and I have to go through all that mess again. I will naturally be on hand to hold all bets. When the time comes to pay off the bets, however, you may find it a little difficult to locate THE OFFICE CAT.

Editorial - Cooperation Between Students and Teachers
As is true in every phase of life, increased cooperation could improve Havana High. Our school is not lacking in cooperation, far from it, but the amount of cooperation could be increased. There is no such thing as too much cooperation. Each a small increase in cooperation makes visible improvements in our school. More would be accomplished if every single student and teacher would work together. When there is something to be accomplished, it could be done more easily and more sucessfully if teachers and pupils all pulled together. The school is just a big family; all must learn to work and play together.
Furthermore, students will be more capable of facing the issues of life if they have been taught cooperation. The school is the best place for this teaching, for a school is what the students make it. The applied principles of demorcracy, as exhibited between employer and employee, show immediate results. In proportion to the increase (or decrease) of cooperation between students and teachers, will the school improve (or decline).
Guess what I have to tell you! Well, you might know, it's the Gossip. Now that the Festival is over, maybe all you kids can get down to work again (Ugh! What a horrible thought).
Charles S. and Jim M. (Morgan) seem to love to type, as they do every day. I wonder why?
What's this about Mary Zell's becoming a hyena? Hope it doesn't last for long.
It seems that a certain sixth grader and an eighth grader are on very friendly terms these days. We couldn't have a romance budding or could we.
Say "Junior," what happened to your job at Penn's? There was a complete new crew at work Saturday.
Margaret M. (Miller) and Hunter Mc. (McCullough) seem to have gotten along very well last Thursday night. You'd better awaken from that trance, Howard (Gray)!
I wonder why Douglas Vanlandingham always blushes when Mary Ed (Hartsfield) looks at him.
Mary Ann, did you and Julie (Griner) enjoy your ride to Quincy in C. W.'s Pontiac Sunday? Who's the major attraction over there?
Oh, by the way, does everyone know the significance of "Black Dodges"? I don't know but really want to learn. Why not ask Betty Kelly?
What's this we hear about Winston Sapp's trying to get a date with Virginia Gregory. Say, Wimpy, didn't you know she is engaged?
Let's not rob the grave now, Lessie Myrl, how's your "Sleepy Boy Yawn" getting along these days?
Mary Zell and Bobby W., you two surely did get close to the church Sunday night. Why didn't you come in?
Say, girls, what is your opinion of the new softball pitcher, Garick Brooks by name. "Kute," ain't he?
Iris S. (Sadler), are you still holding your flag out for Fred (Poppell)? He'll be home again someday.
Jeanette Joiner, why do you always like barbers, especially the ones from Quincy.
Ellen Moore, what has happended to your sailor? We don't hear you talk of him any more. Is something wrong?
Lillian Dalton, what's wrong with your college guy from Gainesville? Did you decide to call it "quits".
David Burns, don't you know better than to play with Mosquito Hawks in the class room. Won't you EVER grow up?
June H. (Harvey) , we hear that Gene S., is going to the army. Did Macon, Ga., make him decide that.
Don Butler, how about introducing some of those thousands of girls you know.
Say, kids, what's this about some boys trying to pick a fight the other night because of a few girls, and with a sailor at that? Come on boys, don't you know that he's had more experience than you?
Bobby L., you and Margaret aren't going to call it "quits", are you? What's the matter? Some of you eighth and ninth grade girls had better watch out, because Bobby Harrell has a date with Faye A. (Allen), for the Junior-Senior Banquet.
It seems that a basketball "around Milady's neck" has gone out of style, and the baseball has its place. But, girls, what really happened to the basketballs?
Must leave now. See you next week, same time, same paper, and same people, I hope, for if you don't read my column next week, I'll know you didn't like this week's column. Bye now!
Presenting The Seniors
June Harvey, another of the seniors, is new to our class, having become a member at the beginning of the current school year. She stands 5' 3", and has brown hair, hazel eyes, and weighs 115 pounds (which she thinks is very fat). June has attended school in Florida for only three years; her other years in school were spent in Georgia. Her favorite color is blue and her hobby is reading. Of all songs she likes best, "It Had To Be You." In September, she will be 18 years old.
Although she has not picked out her life's vocation, she plans to go to college next year.
Carl Driver, born on July 25, 1929, is one of the wittiest seniors. He is 6 feet, 3 inches tall, has brown hair and eyes, and weighs about 165 pounds. Carl can usually be found right in the middle of any devilment that is going on. He gets along with the girls pretty well as he is quite a flatterer. Carl has been in the band for four years. He was on the basketball team and is now on the baseball team. He is usually seen with Bobby Miller, Gene Leverett, or Jim Morgan.
The Bay Hi Tornadoes of Panama City on May the eleventh, invaded the HHS home baseball grounds to defeat the Bears for a second time by a score of five to two.
Havana's regular hurler,"Ace (Howard) Gray," got off to a shaky start, allowing the visitors three runs in the first inning. Basil Drake, the Tornadoes' regular pitcher, turned in a fine assignment on the mound although he had to be replaced by Pitts in the last of the seventh after he rattled a little.
After the first inning, the Bears took the invaders with little trouble until the third when they scored their final two runs. The Havana High team threatened again in the last inning when they loaded the bases. Harold Bert, who had thus far lead the Bear's offense with a pair of doubles, flied out to deep right field which almost was a grand slam, ending the game.
|New Super Market Formally Opens Doors Here Tomorrow
The Havana Super Market, a new grocery and meat market, will formally open its doors to the buying public here tomorrow at 9 a. m.
Located where the old A&P store used to be, next to the Post office, the new market has been completely restocked and reaaranged and a meat market added as well as a frozen food locker.
The store will be under the management of Harris Spence, who has been employed by the Blue Plate foods corporation, working out of Tallahassee, prior to his taking over the new business here. Spence is originally from Quincy and is well known to many in this area. He is married and has two children. As is the case with most of our new arrivals here in Havana, he plans to bring his family here as soon as he is able to locate a place to stay.
Spence will be assisted in the operations of the grocery and market by C. J. Sellars, a native of Spartanburg, S. C., who has been in the grocery business for the past ten years. He is married to the former Miss Lois Merritt of Havana.
In announcing his plans for the opening, Spence pointed out that the store would carry a complete line of staple stocks as well as fancy groceries, native and western meats, fresh fruit and vegetables and frozen foods.
The opening day special of the market are are published in an advertisement elsewhere in the Herald today.
|Methodist Drop Tilt To Rappers Tuesday 16-4
The Rappers jumped on the offerings of the Barrineaus of the Methodists in Quincy last Tuesday to score 16 runs on 14 hits in an easy win 16-4. Brooks, who went the route for the Rappers, allowed only two hits in the seven frames.
H. Brrineau started for the Baptists and after a long, long one third of an inning and giving up six hits, turned the mound over to L. Barrineau. Although the Rappers were charged with six errors, as compared to five for their opponents, the story of the ball game was in the disasterous first and fourth innings which saw them score 6 in the first with six hits and 7 in the fourth. J. (Jack) Bert hit a home run scoring (Edwin) Herring and Harold Bert, and Dan Miller came up with a four base clout scoring Don Williams.
Jack Bert was head man at the plate for the Rappers with three for four trips, a single, double and his circuit clout. Don Williams came up with two doubles scoring H. R. (Harold Rogers Bert) and J. (Jack) Bert on his first blow in the first inning.
Gray and H. Barrineau collected the only hits for the losers, a double and a single.
(Ed. note: Sacks for the game were furnished through the courtesy of Mr. Gus Bert, who brought them along just in case.)
