Uncle Bob finally let me down;
I might have known he would not
be an authority on the Irish . . .
And then another thing, reckon a
Scotchman would "give out"; even
if he knew something . . . Anyway,
he says that the name sounds a bit
Turkish to him and that he cer-
tainly wouldn't risk a guess as to
whether this person is a man or a
woman. Judging from the name
what do you say? In the meantime
send a bundle of old papers to Liam
Hodgins, 23 Reginald St., Dublin
Eire, for this person is sick with
TB and begging for some Ameri-
can papers or magazines . . .

"Old soldiers never die"; and al-
most never fade away. The tragic
jart of it is there are plenty of
voungr ones dying and some of our
leaders are waking up to the fact
of 'What for." Some of the author-
ties in the far East say that just
;,hi> sort of tiling could no on a
hundred years and not solve any-
thing; if we could last that long.
Men and time mean nothing to the
Asiatic people. If there are two
things that they have more of,
it is -time and children. We have
lo t 80 000 casualities. North Korea
has lost 270,00(1. All the other hard
fighting friends of ours in the Uni-
ted Nations have lost a combined
staggering total of 30,000 adding up

In a nearby town the teacher
\vas asking some current questions
during the class In Civics. He asked
his question; "If we were on the
:oad to inflation which should a
person buy Stocks or Bonds?" A11
answered stocks except one. "And
why do you say bonds," asked the
teacher. "Well, suppose you do have
inflation, won't feed get high, and
if you have to buy feed for the
stock where will you be?"

I notice in the papers that the
chairman of the taxation committee
in the Senate says that ttiis 7 bil-
lion tax boost that they ar? voting
on now is the very limit that the
<VmerlctiH people can stand. It is
itnrtling to think that in twenty
/ears we have come from a com-
paratively tax-free people to the
. ery Lrink of disaster and no one
eeins to care, hardly . . . Most of
he counties, state-, and schools
have been fairly conservative in
raising taxes; now the federal gov-
ernment has grabbed all the po-
.ential here; especially many of
the county and city governments
have tried to hold the line. I won-
ler whether it was wise or not.
Washington has taken all the take;
now it will dish it out along with
the authority thttt tfo«« with it.
One of the chief reasons for the
fall of the Roman empire was high
taxes, another was corruption In
the government, another was mo/-
al and religious backsliding, I won-
der, I wonder.

I heard of a city girl that was
out. visiting on the farm and after
watching the cows being milked
and all the other chores she was
asked at the supper table if she
would like some milk to drink.
"No," she replied, "If I can't have
factory milk I don't beleve I want
any" . . .

There are two kinds of speakers
that just kind of worry me; that
is, in addition to those that talk
too long and say too little. These
are those that just almost curse
all the time; kinda keep you wor-
ried for fear that they will say
something to offend someone, and
the ones who tell jokes that are
too bad to be told out behind the
tarn. I know that most speakers
that tell these rough jokes do so
because they think the people want
it, but in many cases it just sorta
spoils the talk ... I think I love
a joke as well as he next person
but somehow vulgar jokes told in
mixed audiences* or in the com-
munity church houses just don't
;eem funny to me . . .

Scissor-Tailed Flycalc'- •
"Ka-quee, ka-quee, ka-quee,"
i screams the Scissor-Tailed Flyca-
tcher as hi- rises into the air. So
noisily does lie call that you might
think he was trying to warn his
mate of danger. But his harsh
notes are part of his tlight.
With each "ka-quee," the Flycat-
cher climbs Another notch upward.
At the same time, he opens and
J closes his long, slender tail. Watch-
ing the performance, you can easily
imagine that you are seeing a pair
of scissors held with points down-
ward steadily snipping away. Their
: owner keeps them busy whether he
is rising into the air or dropping
1 toward the ground.
There are moments, though, when
the Flycatcher rests his tail. It al-
ways hangs still and closed when
he perches atop a bush or on a
lence. That is the best time to get
a good look at him.
The male Scissor-Tailed Flycat-
cher is light gray, with a touch of
white at the throat and a dash of
salmon pink under his wings, on
his sides, and beneath his tail. Al-
most hidden under the gray on his
head is a tiny patch of red. He is
from thirteen to fifteen inches long,
including a tail that measures up
to nine inches. The female is smal-
ler and a bit duller in color
The summer home of the Flycat-
cher, says the National Wildlife
Federation, is from Nebraska south-
ward through Kansas. Missouri,
Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and
Mexico. It spends the winter
months in Central America.
When they are in the Slates, the
Flycatchers like to live in the open
country. They want a few trees
about, not for hiding places, but
to use as lookout perches. They al-
so build their nests in trees, about
lifteen feet off the ground.
The home of a Flycatcher family
is carelessly put together, but the
building materials are soft pieces
of plant fibers. It is a warm, com-
fortable nest in which to lay five
small, creamy eg?s which are spot-
ted with brown.
It would be risky tor a maraud-
ing bird to bother the eggs, because
the Flycatcher likes nothing better
than to dart at a larger foe and
chase it away. In fact, the bird with
the scissors goes out of his way at
times to tease and pester other
birds. It is nearly always in fun,
though, and no harm is done.
While he may irritate his feather-
ed neighbors now and then, the
Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher is a real
help to farmers. According to the
National Wildlife Federation, he has
a big appetite for grasshoppers,
crickets, and beetles. Despite his
name, he eats few flies. Sometimes
he goes to the ground in search of
insects, but more often he catches
them while they are buzzing
through the air.
Interesting information on other
wildlife species can be obtained by
writing to the National Wildlife
Federation, Washington 10, D. C.

Answer to Question No. 1:
^ 1. The doctors of Alameda
bounty, California, have set up
a plan whereby any resident of
h. county can receive emer-
gency medical care at any hour,
vgardless of his ability to pay.
One of the most important fea-
ures of the plan is a committee
j settle any disagreement bc-
ween patient and doctor.
inswer to Question No. 2:
2 As early as possible, even
n the first weeks of life. If a
-'ross-eyed child is treated bs-
fore the age of four, the vision
lost because of the defect usually
can be restored and the eye
straightened. With lack of use,
vision in the crossed, eye is re-
duced and both eyes are harmed.
Answer to Question No. 3:
3. Hay fever and. seasonal
asthma are far more frequent
in the United States than in
Europe because ragweed, their
principal cause, has never ex-
isted in Europe.
