April 23, 1959 CO'OKUti f fern*', Prom Here fit There Whittemore Seniors [Enjoy 'Skip' To Kansas City PIGS A big truck driven by John Murra, Jr., of Buffalo Center recently tipped over during a storm. The truck was loaded with 26 head of hogs, the animals were not injured. There was that man who who never said a word when the steam roller tan over his cat. He just stood there with a long puss. * * * * The teacher said she wanted all the little boys and girls to sit still for a few minutes. Still enough so that she could hear a pin drop Very soon all of the children Were perfectly still, not a murmur: , could be heard. Then an excited little Voice cried, "Now's your chance, teacher, let her drop." * * * * ' Johni "I had a little balance in the bank but I got engaged two months ago and now — ." George: "Ah, yes, love is •. what makes the world go round." Johns "Yes, but I didn't think it would go round so fast as to make me lose my balance." "•-•'. * • *-'• , * * ; As recently as 1944, manufactured \gaS companies, comprised ^iheV greatest portion of the gas ' utility industry iri terms of cust- omfers. But the growing availability of natural gas and rising costs of making gas from coke, and 'oil changed the picture rapidly. Of the 32 million gas utility customers, nearly 29 million are receiving natural gas in every major area of the .country. Natural gas, representing 97 per cent of all utility gas sales is served by nearly 1,200 companies. Other companies manufacture their own gas to distribute straight or mixed w.ith natural gas. A few serve liquefied petroleum gas through their utility mains, ' A rural fellow called to jury duty was asked if he could read. "Yes and, no," he replied. "Yes and, no?" the judge , echoed < puzzledly. "Well, Your Hb'no'r," was the- explanation;, "I can read fig-, gets ftreW'cfoocJ, rfiuffioi'ihe writing part. • Wfyen I come to a sign, along the road 1 can tell hSWfurlo.aUt not whur- tO." , ; * * -k * The doctor was fuming when he finally reached his table at a civic dinner, after breaking away from a woman who sought advice on a .personal health problem. "Do you think I should send her a bill?" the doctor .asked a lawyer who next to him. "Why not?.", the ' lawyer replied. "You rendered professional services by • giving advice." "Thanks," the physician said. "I think I'll do that." When the doctor went to his office the next day to dispatch the bill to the annoying woman, he found a letter from the lawyer. It read: "For legal services, $25." * * * *j' The sweeping alteration of the gas industry has borne fruit for the public. The single use of 1816 is gone; in its place are seven major domestic uses and about 25,000 applications in industry — all contributing to the growing demand for gas. In the past few years three new home applications of gas have been introduced to the American family — all-year gas air conditioning, gas laundering, and gas incineration. These, • with gas cooking, gas water heating, gas space heating, and gas refrigeration, comprise the seven servants the industry offers the home. And gas lighting has staged an amazing comeback in recent months. The old man was applying for admission to a charity institution. "What is your occupation?" asked the manager. "I used to be ,an organist," answered the old man. "And why did you give it up?" "The monkey died." "Black, step forward," called out the sergeant-major. Two recruits left the ranks. "Are you both called Black?" shouted the sergeant-major, "No, sir/; replied on*. "My name is Brown.", "Well, what's the matter with you? Are you deaf or daft?" "Neither, Just color-blind, sir," A constant flow of gas is essential to about 33 million fanv ijies who cook, with utility and liquefied petroleum gas; tolmore than 22 million who rely on gas to heat water; to three million who own gas refngerat9rs and to the more than two million who own gas dryers, More than - 24 •million homes are heated by gas, more than by any other .fuel,,and seven out of ten new homes built yse gas heat.
