Cordova, Alaska SMILE AWHILE Ed: “Why do bag-pipers always walk up and the down stage while play ing, do they think it makes a hit?” Answer: “No, they think it makes them harder to hit." “Dont you think that people have better health, now that we have pro hibition?” “ Well, 1 know John doesn't have to sit up with as many sick friends as he did.” A school officer who was a typical critic once paid an official visit, to the school, and, of course, he had to show what a bright person he was. He said to the patient teacher: “Your pupils are not as observant as they aught to be, and I’LL prove it to you.” He turned to the class ana said: “Someone give me a number.” "Thirty-seven, said a little girl. He wrote “73" on the board, revers ing the figures. Nothing was said. "Fifty-seven,” said another girl. He wrote “75” and smiled konw ingly at the teacher when, nothing was said. He called for a third number and was just beginning to broaden that knowing smile when a little rod-head ed urchin yelled: “See if you can change seventy-sev en, cld-timer!” CHIRPY ADVICE “You’re sick of the game!” Well, now, that’s a shame. Your young and you’re brave and you’re bright. “You've had a raw deal!” I know, but don't squeal, Buck up, do your darndest, and fight.
