'INK in my VEINS l**AHj*ria (Iowa) Advan* THURSDAY, *IPT. t> MARIAN INMAN What is your Ice cream consumption average? If you don't spoofi down 5^ gallons of ice cream a year, you're below the national average. Vanilla is the preference of 46 per cent, chocolate nearly 13 per cent and strawberry the choice of 7 per cent of the consumers. Cof foe-flavored ice cream goes over big in th* Northeast, peach in tha South. Hor« in California in our near neighborhood it an ice cream ihop called '21 Flavor*.' I have tatted licorice and many strange combinations of flavors but keep coming back to vanilla which thi* ihop agree* it the popular flavor. Did you know that the origin of advertising goes way back in history. We know it is necessary and sort of take it for granted. American Indians used to carve figures on trees to let it be known they sought a squaw. My vacation in California is drawing ta a clote. I have had a wonderful summer bit all good things come to an end and the thought of coming home to Iowa and my sons and families sounds good to me. I am lonesome to see what my flowers and plants look like and visit with my little grandchildren. Our Richard will be grown so much but I am sure he will still smile at me. He is such a happy little fellow. In a review of the recent study report of two political science professors from two of California's colleges the first statement is that the state once had only two taxes. That was back in the so-called good old days when California had but two taxes: property tax and poll tax. These two sources of revenue met all the state's needs during the first 43 years of its existence. Then things changed, and every succeeding decade — except that of the 1940s — has witnessed the imposition of at least one new tax. The authors, in explaining how California's state and local governments actually function, present a picture of the nature, variety and difficulty of the problems confronting Californians. I expect this can be said of almost any state as in earlier days our wants and needs were so different and since then we have cluttered up our pond with many series of taxes and encumbrances, some good and some evil. Progress is good but we are hemming ourselves in and we are weakening ourselves. In a discussion a few evenings ago the question was asked, "What is the largest U. S. city in terms of area?" Someone immediately said Los Angeles which covers 454.8 square miles. We were not sure and after some research found that the honor is claimed by Oklahoma City. As the result of some 300 annexations, it now sprawls over 631 square miles. Hal Boyle's quote of the week is, "It really takes a pretty small man to hide behind his wife's skirts these days." It seems to me that these days children spend money as if it were going out of style. I can remember when a nickel was big spending money. IS cents was luxury, a dime to get into the movie and the nickel for a treat. Nowadays the parents hand out dollar and larger bills like peeling leaves off a head of lettuce. But then the 15 cents will only about cover the extra price of having popcorn buttered. Yes inflation is here in full force. Advice to me has always been, "Don't take any wooden nickels". Wooden nickels? If you are in Gardena today and someone offers you a wooden nickel — take it. About 53,000 wooden coins 'have been distributed to area residents. They are lucky coins. A wooden nickel in Gardena during the Gardena Valley Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event could be a ticket to Hawaii. A seven-day, six night expenses paid trip to the islandsos.the,*grand prize. , ., . .-• ,ii*'""..*•.-„-: "».- - , - . Si *.: The promotion is designed to introduce residents to stores and services in their area. Other features of the two- and-a-half week promotion will be gift certificates, an art show and a wild west show. So, in this instance do not turn down a wooden nickel. Here is something worth remembering: God gave man five senses — touch, taste, sight, smell and hearing. The successful man is endowed with two more — 'horse and common. Folklore is interesting. Here are a few gems: Eating bread crumbs will make you wise. Putting pepper in your stockings will cure you of chills. Dreaming of ants is a sign of an impending frustration in your life. But dreaming of white horses means you will become rich. ... fUmm Aur*, dttifhtet of the Don Aure'8 IMS enrolled «• a frerfuntti it WUdorf cotteg*, Fortmtaty.
