In 1850 a traveler reported that he saw "a queer thing, a cook stove," somewhere in Michigan., At that time, a mere hundred years ago, most American families were still cookin' over the fireplace. In many } parts of the world, most of the I cookin' is still done that way. • • • Most of my worst fears weren't realized in 1953. so I've resolved not to do any worryin' in 1954 unless some really robust threat chases me into a corner and insists on havin' my undivided attention.

Then he'll have a good excuse to give the Mrs. for stayin' home. And considerin' what he'll iravelin' and livin' expense, his foundation stock will cost mighty little. save on * • ♦ Dogie Johnson thinks, the trouble with price supports for cattle is they would convert an acute but tempo rary pain into a chronic disease. • * • Martha isn't goin' to like this one, but I've got to tell it anyway. Ba-Ba Wilson was complainin' about a certain salesman the other day. "I never heard a man talk so much in my 1116," says Ba-Ba. "but I suppose he can't help it.
