But 1, with my usual calm, ralculaterl and deeply probing method, have conn- up with true and absolutely scientific reasons for the Day. It's all in the interests of cosmic research.

If you find you are having a bad time, cheat a little. When you get done, give yourself 5 points for each correct answer. 1. In what month is the Fourth of July? 2.

In a recipe calling for boiling water, do you use heaping or. level- teaspoonsful? „ . ... NEXT WE COME TO THE MULTIPLE choice portion of our examination, entitled, What Would You Do? If they sound a little- familiar, it's because they have appearred before in this column, and bless your heart for remembering. You can take 10 points for each correct answer, but those of you who think I swiped them someplace else get only 2 points for each correct answer. Besides that, you should try thinking up something new each week for a column. 1. You are at a party but you aren't having much fun. On the other hand, your husband is having a gay old time for himself and he's spending the entire evening off in a corner with a luscious little blonde number. What do you do? (a-) Clobber him right then and there, (b) Wait until you get in the car on the way home to clobber him. (c) Clobber him in the morning when he's feeling much the worse for wear. 2. One of your acquaintances is a good soul, but she is also somewhat of a'bore. When she comes to call; she talks, and talks, and stays and stays. This time you happen to see her coming up the walk before she rings the door bell. What dp you do? (a) Hide in the basement, (b) Hide in the bathroom, (c) Hide under the bed. 3. Your neighbor has a backyard full of choice petunias. One day your pre-schooler comes home with a big bunch of petunias which he graciously presents to you. Which would you do in this situation? (a) Gently, but firmly, lead him by the hand over to the neighbors and have him apologize for getting caught stealing flowers, (b) Thank the child and pretend you thought the petunias grew in your own back yard, (c) Send the kid back over to the neighbors so that you can fill your other vase. 4. Your husband has never been much on giving you those little unexpected gifts. One night he comes home from work much, much later than usual, clutching a big box of candy which he gives to you. What do you do? (a) Smell his breath, (b) Make him eat the first piece of candy just in case they are poisoned, (c) Give him a big kiss and then dash around madly to cook him his favorite supper. IN ANY TEST TO SEE HOW ridiculous you can get, you must have a few facts on which to base your research. These are gleaned for your especial use through earnest perusal of Mad magazine and other distinguished publications: 1. Although a pound of salami and a pound of liverwurst weigh the same, three pounds of chopped liver weighs more than both put together. . 2. A man traveling on foot from Tokyo, Japan, to San Diego, California will drown before he goes a hundred miles. 3. You can boil an egg in the waters of Lake Jubywahta on the Island of Izmagola! (Of course, you have to,-heat the water first). 4. Queen Kayzaheta of the Ongla tribe of Outer Slobovia has a harem of 400 husbands. In a single evening recently, 397 of them called to tell her they would have to work late at the office. . 5. Contrary to popular opinion, the canary cannot sing! The musical sound which the canary does make is just a form 'of accompaniment for the canary's real specialty—tap dancing. _ ,6. If you take a number, triple it, divide it by 3, add 20, multiply it by 7 and subtract the answer from your original number, you will probably come up with the wrong answer. NOW IF YOU HAVE FINISHED this test to the best of your ability, copy the answers neatly in ink, add up your score and cut out the coupon. Any old one will do, such as the ones on the General Motors or A. T. & T. stock, and rush them to Grace,, There will be 5,680 winners of the first prize—a special invitation. to demonstrate just how ridiculous you can get at Algona s Ricnkujus Days, Friday & Saturday, July 17 & 18.
