Yes siriSticks and stones
will break my bones but,
names will never hurt me **
*And still I’d kill the guy
who asks: "Are you working?
Or in the Army?" ****** Why
is it we only get one (l)
slice of bread and one (l)
drop of molasses for break
fast? Why do they keep us
standing in the hall 15
minutes after chow call
waiting and smelling bacon,
steaks, sausage— then:rhen
we get inside get - nothing
of the kind? Well, if you
can’t tell us l’ll tell
the boys next week. ******
Sometimes I wonder if mod
ern times aren’t becoming
more and more inferior? I
remember perfectly an old
proverb ( Charles Dickens)
that (Said "Time does not
rust, but brightens, the
links cf a golden chain"
Well, this is more than
true in a case concerning
a certain Red and Cream
Ford sedan, (Tsk, tsk [ )
As long as life endures
it is unfinished business,
because something new is
always happening to modify
what seems fixed and imp
rove that which seems im
perfect.— Thanks for read
ing and I’ll be seeing you
next week. So be it 111

POSTSCRIPT

First Old Mb id: "I see by
the paper that a woman in
Omaha has just cremated her
husband."
Second Ditto*: "Isn’t that
always the way? Some of us
can’t get a 4 man at all
while others have husbands
to burn,"
Blond: "I’ve been married
five times. Do you think
I’m a loose woman?"
Redhead: "No,dearie, just
a busybody."
One of the best arguments
against drafting men over
35 years of age is that
their expectancy for enth
usiastic enjoyment of vet-j
crans’ reunions after the;
war is relatively short.
Gal: "An I the first girl!
it ou cv'-'r kissed?"

GI: "Now that you mention
it, you do look familiar."
Most popular shades of;
the summer are those left
up in a girl's br-dro&n.
Three strikes: (l) A leakj
in the gas tank isn't as!
bad as c drip at the wheel)
(2) A sophisticated
girl is thr> kind that can
take a cigarette? from the
ash tray just like she’d
been smoking it in the fir
st place...(3) Some people
believe anything you tell
them — if you only whisper]
it.
A word to the wife is
never sufficient.

Pond buying motives vary,
but the last extreme is the
case cf the woman from sou
thern Missouri who went in
to town on hrr annual shop
ping trip. Fher she finish
ed with her other purchases
she turned to the clerk and
asked, "Is there any chance
cf getting that* sane bar

As proof that ns n should
never have monkeyed around
with the horseless carriage,
there’s the sago of the
Midwestern couple whose car
crashed into a guard fence.
The collision sheared off
two fence posts and drove a
twelve-foot fence rail thr
ough the radiator and inst
rument bard. As the rail
passed between the two pas
sengers, it snagged the *
lady’s clothing, stripped
it from her and neatly tuc
ked it away in the trunk
