PIPE COLUMBUS DAY In 14 hundred 92, Columbus sailed across the blue, And after sailing many hours, Discovered this great land of •ours. So help iis, does Louie ever get back on his jo'o, we promise never to work a day job again so long as there be a swing job we can hold. Mu*B Cttr Glob«-G»ielt», MM*B Cttjr, U, Oct. 12, 1949 15 All honor to his noble name, But oft we wonder just the same, If better off we all might be, Had chris ne'er sailed across the sea. _• — Which our country has gone quite a ways since Mr. Columbus discovered it is where it is. As to whether it was there before he found it, and how long, nobody knows. Any way there it.was. And it is still here, although with the atomic bomb agitation and possible results from same, it may not continue in its present location for any certain length of time. — • — If mere man continues to mess with the said a. b. he is liable to create an atomic explosion among the atoms and cause an explosion that will leave of our earth but a biff puff of smoke. And the people on Mars, if any, will do a lot of wondering what them guys down there did, or done, to themselves. — • — And now we see in the papers where an airplane driver gets himself arrested for violating the airways traffic laws and regulations. Also where another fellow gets into trouble for stealing a plane. But the real fun wont start until the planes become as numerous in the ambient atmosphere as are automobiles at present on terra firma, what ever that is. And there is in effect as many traffic laws and regulations governing airway plane operations as there are at present regarding automobile operations. Its going to be something to see an airway traffic officer giving a ticket to a plane for speeding, or for passing on a curve, and for overtime parking or running a stop sign, or dropping a monkey wrench out of a plane and konk- ing a pedestrian on the bean. A - ^F ——— Yes indeed, the traffic officer of the future is going to be in for a bad time. Especially when he tells the driver of a plane to pull over to the curb and stop. — • — WHEN AIRPLANES FILL, THE ATMOSPHERE, THEY'LL RUN STOP SIGNS, WE GREATLY FEAR. • When Earl gets around to putting the new calendar in effect we do hope he is able to include a few more weeks in it. At present there is not enough weeks in our calendar to go around. Every week is occupied by some organization, society, or association, in which the merits of the subjects sponsored are extolled and highly recommended. In addition there are numerous other weeks desired for the same purposes. We should have more weeks in our calendars. —e— Speaking of weeks, we note that Oct. 16 to ZZ is pipe smokers week. As to why should a pipe smoker need a week we know not. Unless it be to clean out his old pipes and remove some of the odor that ever clings to a smoking pipe. Or maybe talk some of the wimmen cigarette smokers into becoming pipe addicts. Which wouldn't be a bad idea at that. As to whether a hot pipe coal would burn a being diapered baby more than a cigar et ash we know not. Only the said baby could tell us that, and a baby in diapers can't talk. At least much.

One of the cutest name plates for a residence we have seen in quite a spell is the one at 711 North Monroe. On the mail box is written in attractive lettering the words: "The Dougans live here." Of course as The Dougans live in the North Light suburbs. Mason City's most exclusive residential district, such classiness is to be expected. We note that - Van our justly famous sports editor, had the fortitude to put forth in public print his forecast printed last spring of the final standings of the teams in the big leagues. Which we missed connections so much worse than did Van that we havn't the heart tg reprint our springtime guesses. Let us hasten to add a hearty approval to Mr. Eye in his recent anti-approval of highway No. 65 between Owatonna and the Twin Cities. It is a road to be heartily unendorsed. How dumb some pepole get. For instance when Louie Pion lelt on his vacation to circulate a fait in the extreme west, we thought it would be nice to work his job and maybe like it to work days a bit. Which we do not. This arising from our more or less downy couch at or before 7 am creates a magnificient pain in our kneck.
