May is from the Latin Maius,
just as June takes its name
from Juniores, Juniors. That
is, this is a month when old
heads are at thier best, and
young men like Bill Ta.ft and
Ted Rosevelt will have to look
out for old tops like Uncle John
Rockefeller. About the 25th,
nobody much will care to bet
that Uncle Joe will not be nom

Gemini people are restles.
They move all the time, and
you always hai c to ask them
where they are living now.
They have brilliant imagina
