t i ne ripe. 3?he pipe is a (Sage for snloking matches. The Indians were the first voiles tp smoke a" pipe, and after see- . ing a movie of anIndlan camp we can understand why they can smoke . pipes. , ' The squads put up the wigwams. .(.carted in kindling wood, cooked, and all the. time took car.e aFt-tie1 kids by navigating around wittfthe youngish chiefs and squawesses harnessed on their ma's back while the .old" bucks, chiefs, ex-chiefs, assistant chiefs, etc., lay around busily pushing the "wind backwards through their pipes to manufacture smoke. From what we know about pipes at that those' he Indians in a way were working junt as hard as he she Indians.. ' J , ;. ' ' Nbw .here's-what we're trying, to drive at about pipes: In-Jhese modern-times we can't figure out how fellas with" work to do can find time to smoke a pipe (of course, sportfng editors and-.pbliticians .aren't count ed in on this). As we said before, go back in history a bit. Those Indians were" either one-stepping the war path or smoking pipes and both jobs kept them busy while they were awake. In smoking a pipe an hour a, fella wastes 3 hours time and a couple of gross ofmatches and uses up enough pipe cleaners, the' material of which would make a nice winter overcoat. We suppose you'll say, "Well, what kind of a pipe are you smoking?" Now, Clarence, we've snioked pipes from the clay mplar grinders to turk "ish hookahs and they're all the same. If s all right to smoke a pipe, - if you've got a lot of time and money and can lay around at Palm Beach. But lis guys who are clock watchr ers can't afford a vacation every time we 'really want to smoke a pipe. o o Detroit jewelry. store is selling eggs. x But they'll never be popujan "as engagement gifts.
