We are otherwise normal and sane,
but once, loose in a crowd with a
furled umbrella and human safety is

Sunday morning. Ah, what a glor
ious invention! The kingpin of the
mornings. Who said "Life is just
one d d thing after another"?
They're all wrong. What about Sun
day morning? Whoever said it was
probably thinking of politics. Well,
let's go. Eddie, snoot the spotlight
on Sunday morning. Ah, that's bet- '

the tub. Ain't it swell, just loaf and

the phonograph and awkwardly jig
in their -easy slippers. Anyhow, no
matter what they do everybody is 0.
K. on Sunday morning. Let's get-together
now boys. Three cheers for
Sunday morning! If we ever get to
be a congressman bank on us put
ting through a bill for two Sunday,
mornings a week. What dye say?
A new hand bag for women js con

can properly carry a dollar or a pa
