Somebody had to stay up late to think up this super-idea. We sure got a surplus of super thinkers. And if somebody should ever come along and would care 'o begin reducing expenses, he would not need to look far. The Atlantic is a big ocean. And if it was twice as big, it would be just twice as good for us. And if it! was 3 times as big, so much more 1 and better. But these 300-m He-; Boys, they are narrowing the ; ocean—they are getting us inch by inch nearer to Europe—and trouble. You go and edge over next door and snoop around into what the commotion there is about, and •vhich is none of your business — and you will also maybe come home and put a poultice on your eye. Ordering other folks off a public ocean, stranger, that is ordering And I been thinking about the icebergs and ordering them out; too, but I guess they maybe just overlooked them, temporary—and they will be next.
