AUSTIN. Tex.. Aug. 12—Two of
of the most prevalent questions
which men are asking state draft
boards sow are: “When will I

BUIIY HAPPY WITS TUB
One editor friend of ours who
prints this column now and then
whites to say we should dwell
longer on a subject instead of
bringing up so many different
things in one column.
Trouble is, we’ve always found

posing cur ignorance in just short
paragraphs. Longer treatment cf
a subject may be hazardous.
Back in school when tlheTe were
I “book reports” to be written, we
often got our grade with the com-
ment from the teacher that it
was an “exceptionally fine report
to be written by one who hasn’t
even read the book.”
