Russell Crouse, playwright and co- author of "State of the Union", was asked what message he would deliver if he were on a coast-to-coast net- work hookup reaching every radio in the U.

Crouse was quiet for a moment, then said: "The next voice you will hear, will be that of Franklin Delano Roosevelt!" -O PUT MY NAME ON IT TOOl I GOT NERVE ENOUGH TO BY NOTPU (Vas you mebebe ex- pectlnk Vestmiaister ~bie) SPRING AND SUMMER Spring is here; winter's expired. This is the season young men's hearts are fired with streams and flowers, and birdses and beeses, And balmy springtime's balmier breezes. Yes, spring is here; the *world is hummin', And soon the summertime's a comin'. But. young man, don't plan on those, warm sunny beaches, 'Cause forward the draft board's hairy arm reaches.

Yes, even the best of Cub fans need a program lately. In fact, one of the program sellers recently reported that Cholty Grimm was one of his best customers. No--It's not quite this bad, but things have been slightly altered at Wrigley field. If you're a Cub fan like Joe, and happen to take in a game, you will notice it is neither Phil Cav- aretta nor Hentz Beeker on ~first base. No, it's Eddie Watkius. You will also notice that it's neither aged Stan Hack nor strong arm Ostrosky on third base. No, wrong again, it's left-fielder Pea- nuts Lowrey. Well. Joe Fan; this could go on all day--you could never guess who would be at the next position. To round out the infield you would find Bill Jurges at short and Alban Glos- sip at second. In the out-field you find, off and on, Phil C, avaretta, Mar- vin Rickart, Andy Pafko, or Bill Nick- oIson. No, Joe Fan, you haven't been hit- ting the opium, although I can't say the same for Cholly Grimm, but there's one thing ffor sure: Cholly is going to prod,dee a winning team this year, even if he has to play himself--no, Grimm, get off first base, I was only kidding. -O Youth Serving With Navy Air Group Donald E.

Marble Voykovich gave her a very nice coffee percolator, and now I bet she will drink coffee morning, noon and night. Andrea Tagert gave her a comb and brush so now you just watch and see if Teet's hair isn't growing longer. Mary Cocozza gave her a bud vase with three lovely roses in it. They were very pretty and the fragrance was wonderful. Nancy Hoers gave her sta- tionery and now she can write us students just lots of letters (I know she will love that). Isobel Saldano and Helen Maya gave her a box of candy --now watch your diet. We will help you with your diet, pass it around, huh ?
