"He is versatile and a dynamo of en

Fashion in Paris has issued a novq
decree in connection with the coming

The umpire's job is not a snapr
If any one should ask you,
And for a modest,,quiet chap s
'The~work is not a task you
Would'eare to pick if he desired
A life of peace and quiet
And wasn't one of those inspired
With love of noise and riot.
.o matter how he may hand out
A very close decision,
U's bound to raise on high a shout
Of loud and harsh derision.
Although he does the best he can,
fome one is always willing
6o say of this berated man
That what he needs is killing.
Old cans and such around him cr&sb
And language most annoying,
. .Rg bottles and a lot of trash
Ills peace of mind destroying.
The names they call him. I'm afra4
Would cause a public scandal
If other kinds of men were madn
To use them for a handle.
Why doest't he resign and got
A job that's much more hu1ndrum?
That is a mystery, you bet,
Likewise a hard conundrum.
He sticks and takes the frenzied wit
Of those who would be funny.
rho only answer that will fit
Is, He must need the money.
