Out of 27 cars one came to a full stop. Some just sneaked over, others changed gears, and a few got into the intersection then stopped to avoid traffic coming from right angles. One old gal, grim- lipped, came up to the stop sign, shifted gears, and shot away around the corner like a goosed jackrabbit. Some of these youngums have forgotten the stuff they learned when they got their license—and they couldn't seem to care less about stopping—unless it's in the middle of the block to carry on a conversation between occupants of cars, blocking traffic neatly. • * * MAYBE IT DOES some- thtnig for some people, but •this Petunia Clark commercial for thai auto is a big pain to the Old Goat. She can't sing for sour apples and she is no raving beauty according to the Old Goat's guides for such things. It docs seem too the little things are em- phacised in the pitch—like disappearing headlights — that's downright unnecessary as far as the Old Goat is concerned. But no matter which brand of car they all echo the other on the gadgets and gimicks. Well maybe people don't give too much of a hoot about the engine and wouldn't understand it anyway. in.

THE GUYS WITH the long undies or bloomers have now given way to the football bruisers. The long Sunday afternoons now have three games to be watched, enough to give a fellow a backache. The biggest hams in the world are the announcers. When they are yacking their awful comment they insist on the camera showing their ugly mugs. There are bands on the field, people in the stands, a skyline of the city, and dozens of other shots that would be interesting—but no, all you see is the chin-wagging, a doleful thing to look at even when you want to hear what they're saying. After tome experience it is evident they never say anything new and they're all •like. Worst is the sideline interview with the announcer mouthing it off and the poor goop of a player supposed to say "yup" and "Dem guys is good" as the stick mike is waved at them. * t * SUNDAY NIGHT on the idiot tube is a wasteland. Ed Sullivan is as bad as ever, the Smothered Brothers should be, Mission Impossible is, • and the Bonanza and High Chappairel are predictable shoot-em-ups. Just once, please, couldn't the Cartwrights make a mistake or get drunk and shoot up the town. They're too lily to be real. On the Chapparel they shoot Indians and bad guys by the dozens, a dreary ending for a Sabbath. tot THAT BIRD GIRL and the marine captain are beginning to get into the female sect- Mrs, Verl Patterson was in Des Moines Wednesday and Thursday of last week attending a meeting of the Grand Chapter of the Eastern Star.
