THE REGISTER NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TUESDAY, JULY 3, 195! Three Men On a Hill In Korea By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK —Three »American soldiers sat atop a nameless knoll in Korea. It was a peaceful twilight. They watched a cloud swim like a great white whale into the setting sun. Joe One—Well, tomorrow's the Fourth of July. I see by Stars and Stripes it's the 175th annl versary of the Declaration of Independence. We ought to do some thing special to celebrate. I think I'll spit on the sergeant. Joe Two—I guess I'll wash my socks. -I'm going to write a Gee, I wish I was Joe Three letter home, home. Joe One—Home? Listen to the replacement. All he can talk about is home. Joe Three—Anyway, I wish I was home tomorrow. Maribel and I would go on a picnic. * * * ., JOE ONE—What A MARIBEL? A flower, or a new kind of auto? Joe Two—Sounds more like a horse to me. But I never took one on a picnic. Joe Three—Cut the kidding. You know she's my girl. I showed you her picture. Her folks and my folks usually go out to the fair grounds every Fourth of July for a picnic. Joe Two (slapping at a mosquito)—Bet there's a lot of ants. Joe Three—Oh, the whole town turns out. The mayor or our congressman makes a speech. The veterans have a parade, and there's a baseball game. Then we all have a big dinner, and sit around and watch the fireworks. * * * JOE ONE—FIREWORKS!.'.'! Joe Two—Didn't they make you nervous ? Joe Three — Aw, cut out the corn, fellows. Hey, I betcha I know something you don't: It was the Chinese that invented fireworks. Joe One—I wish they'd of kept them at home. Joe Two—Who taught them how to point them? Joe Three (dreamily)—And afterward Maribel and I go and dance, and then we take a long ride before going home. We got a favorite parking place of our own. It's on a hill, over a creek. Joe One — Sounds like a hard day's work to me. * • * JOE TWO — YEAH, ANTS, speeches, noisy juke boxes, and some gal jawing at you to get married. It's a lote more quiet and peaceful here. The two soldiers wrap themselves in a blanket and soon are asleep. Far over the hills a flare drops slowly in the darkness. The third soldier carefully puts away the picture of Maribel. Joe One—Z zzzzzzzzzz! Joe Two—Z z z z z—z z z-z z z!!.' Joe Three (softly)—Gee, I wish I was home, 'We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident' Record Number Of Movie Theatres MODERN WAY TO GIVE ASPIRIN TO YOUR CHILD PARKIN E' L I T By Associated Press NEW YORK, July 3 —Reports of television causing widespread closing of movie theaters have given "an entirely erroneous impression.' an official of the Council of Motion Picture Organizations says. Arthur L. Mayer, vice president of the council, adds that there are more movie houses in the U. S. at present than ever before. Rather than declining, he says, the number has increased by 20 per cent since 1948 to 23,120 theaters. In the same period, Mayer says, seating capacity went up 19.2 per cent to 14,684,150 seats. Mayer asserted in a statement yesterday that most recent theater closings were due to "marginal operations" with television only one of several factors. He said his figures came from the U. S. Department of Commerce. About 60,000,000 persons attend movies every week, Mayer said fAOUNBCiTf £= FURNITURE STORI 819 Broadwaj — Phone 655-J FIRE * * * FIRE 3H inches of YORKTEX MINERAL WOOL ttop« M much heat M 124 inches concrete.
