Morse coming for kick-off By Paul Tardy It’s always a thrill to in spect tfc£ new automobile, especially in a “sneak pre view” as 1 had the pleasure of “sneaking” Tuesday. The new Chevi'olets look “readier” than ever and almost appear lu be in motion while standing dead still. Not changed basi cally, but just showing that added umph. The Fords are fancy, too. Witn their plush interiors they give you that get in and go feeling. Everybody can see them. Thursday for the Chevys and Friday for the Fords. See mem all. Showday is always a good time to get free re i'reshinents at most dealers, tnd a chance to change plea santries with friends you haven’t seen for some time. '.i any businesses could re duce their prices to all if they didn’t have to spend half their administrative time try ing to please a minority of the hard-to-please customers. We are always appreciat ive of those who are interested enough in this, newspaper to make suggestions. Of course, it would be impossible to comply with all, but we do give co' sideration to each and every reasonable idea. Sonny Peaster, from out West somewhere past Thorn ton, called to suggest that we carry some editorials by Tom' Anderson, the great con servative. editor of Farm and Ranch Magazine. We are looking into the situation. To The Dogs This is National Dog Week, which falls etacb, y\?&t iti September, and is being cele brated as such for the 36th vear We find from research that the United States has around 25 million dogs out or which approximately 20% are thoroughbreds and the other S0% just dogs. We also find that we, in the United States, spend over $300 million an nually for dog food, over $5 million for dog supplies, $3 million for dog medicine and drugs and around $18 million for Veterinary fees. A goou deal may w in behalf of dogs as to their intelligence, loyalty and ma ny fine traits and it might well be that the human race could learn a lesson or two from the canines. Like hon c stv - - - if they like you they let' you know and if they don’t like you they growl o: bite - - no hvpocricy about tnat. And like loyalty - - - if you own a dog and you’re good to him, he’s going to I- ve you, no matter what may come . . . hard times or good times. And like responsibiHty . . vou teach a dog to do a job like “watchdogging” and he will never forget that it’s his resposibility to let you know if a stranger is around. And many more traits like de votion, humility, gratitude, in dependence and dignity can be credited to our doggy friends. What more could be asked of them - - or of hum anity?
