I—ALOONA (Iowa) ADVANCt THURSDAY. JAN. 20, If66 •eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee THE OLD GOAT wonders what kind of a nut would drop a pearl in a shampoo to see how last it went to the bottom as shown on that silly commercial, i'tankly it would seem someone has a loose bolt in the head to do such a stunt. Of course as a come on also they often show a damsel frolicking around in a tub of suds, probably causing a young gent's eyes to brignten a bit. Tnough tne older gents are well aware tfiey aren't going to see a danged bit more than the law allows, if that much. Wonder how many 10-year-old minds these advertising moguls think there are in older booies in this country? Any husband who caught his wife dropping a pearl in a bottle should be entitled to beit her one. * * ' * BY THE WAY, maybe that's why the name is what it is—but rignt in tne middle oi camera is caMEra. ,;, ,;, * SEEMS AN assistant coach to the Chicago football team got a better offer from the Los Angeles he-goats and tossed his contract out the window and signed up for the west coast team. Seems to be • contract nowadays is one- sided only. There are lots of instances where a person signs a contract with an organization that binds the organization but the parson doesn't feel it binds 'him at all. If this gent in Chicago had been fired the first thing he would do is come into the court yelling bloody murder and waving the contract like old glory, sometimes it seems in this brave new world « man's signature isn't much good anymore on such things except when he wants it to be. * * * THE OLD GOAT wishes they would let Mrs. Kennedy and her kids alone. The poor woman can't go anywhere for a good time without having a bevy of panting photographers and sob sisters trailing along seeking to make a good deal out of her every move. It isn't a healthy way to bring up the Kids, who are fatherless anyway because of an assassin's bullet. * * * WELL NOW: Lookyhere what we got! There was a style show of new deals for the girls in Rom* which the reporters gushed that showed "flowing beach coats over bare bikinis." The reporter said the new style bared most of the tops and part of the hip bone, which is connected to the backbone which is connected to the neck bone, but anyone wearing one of them hasn't any head bone to be connected to, so there! Also it was said the new wigs are bushy or stringy. Phooey —any woman can tell you it's no truck to have stringy hair without a wig. By the wa y_ w hat is a "bare bikini"? Yick! .;•.** WONDER IF THOSE kid reporters who write so knowingly about the buttonhook pass on the sports pages ever saw a buttonhook. The Old Goat's first shoes and quite a few afterward were of the button variety, and a buttonhook was an absolute necessity to get them buttoned when the shoes were new. When old the buttons could be popped into the holes with fingers, but not when new. When a new pair of shoes were sold then the clerk asked if the customer wanted a new buttonhook much like the beer can sellers now wonder if you need a can piercer. And they were shoes, too, not these short topped deals. F # * * THE OLD GOAT has a new hate and it's Phyllis Diller. Maybe she's good but she doesn't <|o a thing for the Old Goat except disgust him most of the time. She's funny like a fellow filling down and breaking a teg. Phooey! •9 * # * THE NEWiST on the idiot is the Bjatnuan. Jeepers but the programs directors must think mighty little of the intelligence of their audiences. Yuccck! Snap-On opens a new branch near London Snap-on Tools Corporation of which Weidenhoff Corp. here is A part, has increased its activities in England by, opening its first British Branch in Kettering, Northans, located approximately 80 miles from London. The new operation will parallel the marketing pattern which has proven successful for Snap- on in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. This facility will be a base of operations for Snap-on dealers. Working from trucks, Snap-on representatives will provide direct sales and service of tools to professional mechanics and to industry, throughout the country. Snap-on's vast line of production and maintenance tools manufactured in the U.S. and Canada will be warehoused in Kettering for supply to the dealer force. At the present time nine trucks tfe operating from the Kettering base. Company plans call for a substantial increase in the number of trucks in the future. According to Rogers Palmer, Snap-on senior vice president for marketing and foreign operations, this move will provide British mechanics with the same personalized tool service American counterparts have enjoyed for years. The trucks have tool displays and the dealers demonstrate and sell tools at the mechanics' place of business. Prior to the opening of the Kettering facility, Snap-on tools had been marketed in England by concessionary companies. Paul J. Schutt, assistant to the vice president for foreign operations at Snap-on coordinated the establishment of the new branch. Managing the operation is Harry Holmes, a Briton who lived in the U.S. for two years while representing a British automobile manufacturer. Commonwealth regional manager is Reginald Gadsby, also British born but who has spent 15 years in Canada and supervises Snap-on operations throughout the British Commonwealth. James Thayer, from Baraboo. Wis., is the local office man- ager, and set up the accounting and stock control procedures along the lines used in the U.S. and Canada. Mr. Thayer is the only American on the snap- on team in England. WdtMhoff erail •teed The second annual meeting of the Weidenhoff Employees Credit Union was held Saturday at the K.C. hall.
