GOOD NEIGHBORS—PRICES TO
FIT YOUR BUSINESS
jJust when we were . thinking
about the freedoms which we
have given up in order that we
might have more security, we
ran across the following lines by
"For what avail the plow or
sail, ... Or land, or life, if
Reckon what kind of expres-

The other night we were watch-
ing a fountain pen ad on TV
and the sales talk was about a
piggy back refill. It seemed that
soon as you used one end of the
filler you unscrewed one from the
other end and put it in front and
there you were ready to go again.
The only thing that seemed to
complicate things for me was why
it had to be divided in the first
place. It could have been a big
pig and been as long as both to
begin with and you would have
saved the change over.
Do you remember the following
little poem? Perhaps you com-
mitted it to memory years ago.

Speaking of memorizing poems
we wonder if students still have
to do this in school. Personally
we think that it was a good
thing. We sure did dread it
sometimes. I still remember the
sweating we did over 28 lines
from Chaucer or some other En-
glishman. Most of all I remember
the poem IP by Kippling. It has
brought me help many times.
Recently we visited the fair.
The one they always say is big-
ger and better than ever this
year. . . Usually, it is bigger but
sometimes we almost want to
argue with the better angle. Take
for instance this year; the wife
and I always visit the Art de-
partment. Sometimes I wonder
why, especially after this trip..
Honestly, this modern art has me
buffaloed. Makes us wonder what
we humans are coming to. Really,
we think we are a patient man
and always try to see the other
fellows view point, but this trip
just about made us flip.
When music hit its low in
rock'n roll we field our peace.
Let the boys and girls Imp and
bop if they want to after all it
is good exercise. Maybe it keeps
them from worse things. So we
never for once complained. We
just tuned in Perry Komo or
Bing or Lawrence Welk when
we wanted music and let the
young fry keep cooking on the
so-called "Front burner".
Then, when the sack dresses
hit a new high both in length
and shape we almost kept quiet.
But, on this subject of Modern
Art we are shook. Not so much
because of the exhibit because we
can stay away from those. But
what perplexes us most is what
goes into the thinking that makes
we Americans go along with such
thinking and doing.
Honest Injun we looked and we
looked and we couldn't make
nothing else out of one but that
someone kicked the paint bucket
and spoiled the picture. Surely
something must have been under-
neath someplace. Another looked
like one had cleaned up about a
dozen brushes all on the same
sheet of paper. It they put. some
of this stuff in the World's Fair
small wonder we got laughed at.
I'm still bewildered.
