•eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Algeria H<muth (ountyA j HUM0AYFii, 10,1M6-ALGONA, IOWA- ^T V RECENTLY an Associated Press "newsfeature" was seni out to the papers telling the girls to be girlish. The stuff is printed below: Girls don't know how to be girls anymore, says a grandpa and that's the whole reason boys aren't boys anymore. No rocking chair Confucious he. This grandpa has been cas ing courtships, he says. Onlj they aren't courtships anymore He calls them pairing-off part nerships. If you think your shining kn- ght is the answer to your dreams, put him to the test, suggests Grandpa. There are advantages to being a woman and you should enjoy the bounty. Trouble is, some girls don't know what they're supposed to expect, he says, so he asks: Have you ever had a boy: hold an umbrella over your head, surprise you with an unexpected gift, tell you he won't get married until he can support a wife, carry your packages, or write you a real love letter? Grandpa says: Irvington man to Panama for army service Irvington — SP4 Garry Da vis, son of the B. O. Davises, Irvington, who has been with his parents here on a two months leave, left Tuesday for Des Moines, where he took a plane to Charleston, S.

Oldsters say gentlemen should: hold your coat while you put it on, apologize for using a swear-word, brag about your cooking, ask for your photograph, and offer his gloves on a cold day without complaining that you've left yours at home. It's nice to have a boy compare you favorably to a popular beauty, ask permission to kiss you, help you wash the dishes after he's eaten a meal at your house, and refuse to borrow money when needed unless pressed on him. Well that's the way it used to be, says grandpa. And "boys liked it just the same as girls," he says, "it brought out the man in them." ial places of interest will be made by bus, and the entire caravan will return to McAllen, Texas, March 9 for a banquet at the Community Center. The caravan includes trailers from 32 States and Canada, and the tour .is sponsored by the Dodge Motorcade club. To keep such a huge caravan from being a hazard to other motorists the units when beginning a trip are dispatched at ten minute intervals. DESPITE THE "grandpa" credit the Old Goat is suspicious it was written by a woman, probably an old maid who had goofed at her chance when she was something to be considered. Here is a quote which gives the writer away: It's nice to have a boy compare you . . ." Now the Old Goat was around during such a period and he can testify girls were girls then and danged proud of it. They didn't dress like boys, ape them, or pursue them. And the boys were like boys instead of those long-haired monstrocities who imitate the dominant male. In the old days it was no problem to tell the girls from the boys, whereas today an oldster has to look a couple of times to even have a hint. Both wear the tight pants deals and look sloppy. And if a boy held an umbrella, opened the door, or wrote a real love letter he'd be considered a likely candidate for the looney bin. Oh well, the Old Goat would advise that "grandpa" or whoever wrote that piece that it doesn't make a bit of difference whether he or she can tell the difference. The kids can and nature will survive even that. * * * YUCCCK! That Carol Channing on the What's My One nearly had the Old Goat frow- ing up. Of all the affectations in the world she had them. She batted her eyes like an owl with sore eyes, mopped her hair back under that eskimo dog hood, and coo-ed around John Daly like a drunk pigeon. The Old Goat would have an urge to whunip her one on the posterior just to see if she could get out of that rut and cuss the Old Goat out in native English, Betcha! * * * JEEPERS—the dress design ers are now out with what the fashion experts say is fashion It's lucky the new styles don' reach clear out here in the hin terland the way these gooks portray them. It's fortunate the local emporiums show a. bi more judgment in their buyinj than the fashion moguls gest. , YOUTH HAVE SERVICE •Youth Sunday was observed at the Irvington church Feb. 6.
