UAIt aiAU Where do you get that stuff about this Dolly Cako
person? Vou'ro funnier than tho left off wheel ot a Held am
bulance. Dolly uln't a chicken: she's a cake. When I buzzed
you about having a date at tho canteen with some blondo Dolly Cake,
I meant that I was golnc to flat-wheel down to tho food bazaar and
crab off somu ot that light complcxloned cako that thoy pcddlo for 10
cents a copy. Thero is also a brunette Dolly, full ot raisins.
, Guess it I chlrpod you that O. D. meant ollvo drab, you would
cquawk that I was trotting nround with a Jano named, Ollvo. Well,
thero isn't' any frail around this man's gun park by tho label ot Ollvo.
Maybe, It I wised you w that wo had a famous set ot twlna by
tho name ot Mumm down here, you would send tho Boclety for tho Pre
vention of Cruelty to Children down hero on tho hot-foot. Well,
thcro ia a Bet ot Mumm twins' down here, hut don't caire tho H. P. C. C.
Tho Mumm twins consist of Maxlo and his sister Mlnnlo andMaxlo
nnd Mlnnlo Just run this gentleman's gun works, if you havo never
heaTd of Maxlo nnd Mlnnlo Mumm, you havo still got a big eartul
coming to you.
I don't know whether Mlnnlo Is u blondo or not. She's very diffi
cult to Boo, especially when you nro thinking ubout last year's bird nests
when tho 'instructor auddonly calls on you. Maxle Is also a prominent
goot in this tournament. Ho has benzined moro Hat skulled candidates
than tuiy sixteen snagB In this school und, believe me, brlghteycs, this
ncck-o'-the.woods is as full of snags as a porcuplno Is of qullbi.
So tn caso that you havo to Bend anything down to tills works,
don't eend It down for the Mumm twins. Maxlo and Mlnnlo can tako
caro ot thomsclevcs. I think that S. P. C. C. should bo switched to
mean Society ifor Prevention of Cruelty to Candidates. Maxlo and Mln
nlo havo the works by tho short hair, and if that ain't cruelty I'll Bell
you my old straw hat for 8. Yea, !o.
1 rucss by now that you aro hop to tho fact that tho wur la cured,
even It you llvo In Urooklyn. I think that I will be putting on a turkey
nosebag with your fumlly on Thanksgiving. Suppose that your old
man won't bo dishing .up any thanks but just us long as ho kicks in
with tho turk, your 111' Roger will bo waving a mean mees kit If I
ever get a real turkey bracketed 111 creep up two forks and establish
eating for demolition. Now that tho war Is cured, I guess that I won't
get much mnro than n third lootenanuy out ot tho debris, but maybo
it Is Jdet aa well. Whes I am firing for effect on a twelve-pound turkey
bird, I don't want my arms weighted down by two heavy silver bare.
