Well, Willie Shakespeare, it certainly isn't roses as you so aptly stated in "Romeo and Juliet". A suicide isn't » suicide, a graveyard isn't a graveyard and swamp water isn't swamp water. No, this is just teenage jargon for f o o d. Sounds delicious doesn't it. Dick Williams, the friendly affable owner of William's Dairy Creme, admits that he was a little confused the first time he was asked to fill these orders. In case you are wondering, as I did, what teenagers are eating these days, a suicide is a drink composed of "Pepsi-Cola,", "Coke", Lemon, Grape, Root Beer, and any other flavoring you can get a hold of"; a graveyard is a "sundae with every topping you have in the store"; and swamp water, "a plain old root beer float". Dick likes people and this is clearly apparent. He is a native Ottawan, and with his lovely wife, Barbara, and five year old charmer, Debbie, lives at 922 S. Maple. He has operated the "Creme" for three years and previous to this time worked for Mock Motors. What do people eat? This, according to Dick, depends on the age bracket. Teenage taste runs to french fries and hamburgers, while college age students prefer onion rings with their sandwiches. We asked Dick how many potatoes he fixed in a year and he said they prepared about seven and a half tons of french fries a year. Shades of good old Army KP!! Nine different types of sandwiches are featured at the "Creme", ranging from a delicious hamburger to a spicy barbecued beef. What type of people do you meet? All the various and sundry types. Dick's employees like to tell about the little old lady who was pass-ing through town and liked to chat while she ate. She brought her own lunch with the exception of something to drink and proceeded to eat it at the drive-in window, chatting for a full hour while she consumed her lunch. She liked the employees so well she played a return engagement at the drive-in window for the evening meal. Or the night the KBI agents, after investigating a robbery stopped for something to eat after closing hours and walked in the back door unannounced and yelled "RAID". William's Dairy Creme is open the year round and features curb service after five during the week and all day on Saturday and Sunday. Many people take advantage of the shade trees and patio during the summer months. This drive-in offers all the old favorite drive-in food staples and delicious "Dairy Creme". Employed at the Dairy Creme are Eva Meyers, Ruth Hoopes, Jane Griffin, Glenda Turner, Bonnie Watts, Donna McDowell, Jane Anderson, Becky Johnson, Jeanie Hamilton and Joyce Hamilton. We asked Dick if he had any profound statements to make about the younger generation. Dick smiled and said, "Well, if we were all as happy as the younger generation, we would all be better off." To this statement, we can only add our own silent, Amen. Adv. Buying a WATCH for Christmas? We Carry. .. I Elgin • Hamilton I Bulcva • Timex $1.00 will hold on Lay-away.
