(Mrs. Ward Collier)
the registered nvurse, said, "Why
don't you go see Dr. Dan and
Eh. Dick? (Identical twin neph-
ews, Richard and Donald Garrett
They've been to medical school
recently and they Just might help

hans and made an appointment.
I was unprepared for the exam-
ination that followed two days
later. If a hunting dog was ever
put through his training, I was.
If a horse in training was ever
put through his paces, I was,
and the conference that followed
was unreal. 1 couldn't believe
it. "So you never learned to
burp", the good doctor said.
Some people, evidently, it
was not natural for them. '1 have
two other patients with the same
problem and 1 taught one of
them to burp. " Dr. Don went on
to say, "I can teach you how to
burp if you will try."
We started the training and I
thought of my little girl that I
had so many problems with,try-
ing to teach her to blow her nose
at age two. I felt the same age.
"Do you believe in that old
addage", 1 was asked, "that an
old dog can be taught a few
tricks?" I answered in the affirm-

ative and the lesson began. I
was taught how to sit. 1 was
taught how to roll my stomach
and how to relax.
To make a long, long story
short, one of the great accomp-
lishments of my life was learn-
ing to belch at age 45. Now, to
you people who think that noth-
ing good ever happened to you,
just think of the shape you'd be
in if you were afraid to drive
for fear of an attack, go to the
grocery store and have to hold
onto a shelf to keep from falling,
go into a cafe and be afraid to
leave for fear you could not make
make it back to the car, go to
church and wish you were at
home, at least you can be
thankful that you can burp and
the valve at the top of your
stomach works properly.
Someone tried to tell me one
time that if you said 'pardon
me* it was unintentional and if
you said 'excuse me' it was
intentional but you'd like to
be pardoned. So, when I burp
now, I try to keep it muffled
and simply say 'excuse me'. I
guarantee you it's intentional!
Dr. Don, you're the greatest.
4 Your patience with me was al-
! most unreal. Thanks again and
again and again.

Overheard at the ballgame —
"Charles, you need to join die
Chamber of Commerce", said
, G. Cavitt. "For $37.50 a year
you can be another part of this
community and could really
raise cane for something you
didn't like." He signed up and
Mrs. Squires was overheard say-

GSPA TO SPONSOR
Export sales and local market
prices moved up simultaneously
during July, reaching peaks for
both since February of 1968.
Elbert Harp, executive director
of the Grain Sorghum Producers
Association, reported, "18,167,
000 bushels were sold into the
I world trade last month which
helped to strengthen the over-
all demand and local prices,
with some elevators paying as
high as $1. 95 per hundred this
The major part of the July
sales were to Japan, Israel, and
India. These sales are equal to
the total production of Parmer
County Texas, the nation's
largest producer of grain sorghum
or the combined total production
of Sherman, Hansford, and Old-
ham counties. It would also
take the total production of
Yoakum, Terry, Gaines, and
Dawson counties to fill these
Harp said, "The more demand
that can be developed either
locally or over-seas, the better
the prices will be to our prod-
ucers. " GSPA is sponsoring a
referendum in early October
in which the grain farmer: of the
high plains and panhandle
will decide if they want to expanc
their sales and market prices
through an extensive local and
overseas sales promotion program.
Upon passage, farmers will invest
i cent per 100 pounds to finance 1
