Ajpna Konuth County THURSDAY, DEC. 1, 1767, ALGONA, IOWA «...'• vance LEAP YEAR is only about three weeks away, not that it means much except for the gullywaggers who like to think the men do the cha'sing and the women don't. Anyway February has an extra 'day and in this winter'country that isn't too good. February has a nasty habit of dumping snow and freezing the /ears off a brass horse and an .ex- ( try day of that is no bonus. ' Why they didn't add that day to June (30 days hath September, April, June and November) — Yeah, June is OK. Days in June are something to be remembered. February . . . ugh. * * # WELL LYNDA is going to get hitched and the papers this weekend will be nothing to read for the men of the country. She did invite the movie star who squired her for some time and about whom the news- hens were a bit gaga. After looking the field over she , picked a marine captain (soon to be general) instead of glamour-puss which seems to indicate, she's a smart gal. Movie stars have ; a rather poor record in the matrimonial department, while marines are supposed to be well housebroken and trained by the time they get to be an officer. At any rate that's what she's get* ting after her fling over the , world with the glamour boy. It's probably unsporting for the Old Goat to won• der if sometimes in- her secret head she doesn't yearn a bit for the exciting days. *,/•* •--.#'- •'.-••• THE FOOTBALL announcers must think they're talking to a blind audience or v wereitcained,in radio; Jt P irks to have the announcer te"ll the Old Goat there is going to be a pass when the quarterback is racing backward pursued by some earnest gents who want to dump him on his to- cus. And then when the pass is dropped the announcer tells the Old Goat about it af ter the Old Goat had seen the ball bounce. Then they have the instant replay and the announcer again tells all about it. Worst of the lot is the announcing team that does the sideline interview with some big gent telling all about it but between them not saying a thing of interest; In the meantime the band is prancing on the field and all the viewer sees are these two ugly mugs. . ' * # * OLD-FASHIONED will probably be a good description of the Old Goat's view of the lounging pajama and the hostess pajama deal advertised in the gazettes these happy shopping days. The Old Goat still believes pajamas are for beddy-time and a hostess pajama <6unds a bit naughty, to say the least. Women do not look their best in pajamas even the frilly things and for the .Old Goat's/money they'd (better get back to wearing dresses, even those gosh* awful long deals, as a hostess. * * * GIRLS WHO WEAR nylon dresses and undies are banned from working in the vicinity of computers. Seems the nylon generates some static electricity that drives the • machines wild. They are getting so they're almost human, now aren't they? Anyway the girls have to change to cotton if they work in such a business. * * * A SCHOOL, the papers re* port, is sending boys with long hair to the barber and girls with too short skirts home to mother. They are instructed to do something -shorten one and lengthen the other. The Old Goat wonders sometimes in seeing the young off the school ground which is a boy and which is 3 girj in the younger set. Probably girls haye the shorter hair cuts. Weird is probably the best description of the so-called musicians they seem to copy. Especially those gosh- awful mustaches and beards the freak musiciajns have.
