The Railroad Lunch Counter
The railroad lunch counter is a
place to eat when you're not hungry.
You'll be much hungrier by the time
your order is taken. The only peo
ple that eat in 'em are strangers in
town.
When 'the stranger arrives, natur
ally he's excited and isn't account
able for what he does. But at that,
a stranger's first appearance in a R.
R. lunch counter is his last time. The
ones that visit the same R. R. lunch
counter twice are the reason why we
have immigration inspectors.
All the help in the R. R. lunch
counter are busy scrubbing and
polishing the place. They keep the
coffee urns, apples and grape fruit
polished so highly the lighj. blinds the
waiter's vision so he can't see the
customers. The cook in a R, R.
lunch counter must have a cinch but
maybe he's out with the rest of the
help polishing up the place.
The prices are. moderate to the
owner of the place. But then the in
nocent stranger might mooch in with
a two-bit piece and by the time the
meal appeared the two-bit piece
would have drawn enough interest to
pay for the "meal."
From the way things look around
a -R. R. lunch counter the proper
place to eat would be in the shoe
shining parlor.

chological moment'?"
"Have you never seen your mother
ask me for a check, son?"
"Oh, yes, pa."
"And did you ever notice that she
always waits until I have had a good
dinner and she has brought my slip
I pers and has pulled my easy chair
around to the light and struck a
match for my cigar?"
"Yes, pa."
"Well, that is what Is known as the
psychological moment for making a
domestic touch." ,

"Yes," replied Senator Sorghum.

kindly of me as possible." Washing
