Alqona Kotiuth (ountv \ ORSDAY* Ftl, 17, t«66 - AL60NA. IOWA - ^T V Titonkans plan 50th wedding ONE TV SHOW the Old Goat is going to.miss — and it'll be on purpose — is the upcoming Carol Channing. That gal gets the Old Goat. And it's no way a girl should get a fellow, even an old curmudgeon like the Old Goat. She's too affected. She pops her eyes, wiggles like' an eel, and is generally obnoxious as far as these old eyes are concerned. And she can't sing worth a hoot — that husky voice doesn't do a thing. Maybe it does for the young in the head which the Old Goat ain't. Maybe the Old Goat can watch something educational. •x- * # ITALIAN MEN have b««n noted for their appreciation of the finer things in life like women. In fact it is said if a woman isn't pinched in Rome she doesn't have it, whatever it is. However it seems one Italian went a bit too far. He got engaged to 35 women, got them to lend him money, and then took a powder. The gendarmes caught him and charged him with fraud. Now for time immemorial it has been a man's per- ogative to use a bit of fraud in his dealings with the unfair sex. It's no more than right, for with these foolers tis said the women wear, it's no more than just getting even. What the gendarmes were upset about was the fact he took their money! That too is probably what made the women mad. ••• -x- •* THE TV SHOW on trains had a fascination for the Old Goat Time was when a train whistle meant the way to fame, fortune and adventure. The shrill steam whistle had an enchantment the modern diesel snort doesn't be gin to have. It was a small boy's dream world to watch a passen ger MR. AND MRS.

And the conductor ail-aboard seemed a real invitation. There was that same thrill to watch the travelers on that Japanese, European, and other trains. They seemed so important, with important big things to do. If the railroads put half as much showmanship into their trains as the airlines do, and the trainmen were as glamorous and accommodating as the pilots and stewardesses maybe more people would ride on trains and keep them running. •>:• * •* DOUBLE UGH! Some fashion designers in Rome showed "sweaters to the ankle." Nothing could be more revolting than to doll a woman up in a sweater that reached her ankles. How dreadful can they get!? They'd look like a gunny sack full of potatoes. Of course these foolers of women did come out with what they called (of all things) party pants, short shifts, (whatever that is), and dinner pajamas. Now that's what the Old Goat always wanted — dinner pajamas! Oh well , , . maybe they're no worse than those long- skirt short-topped deals they call evening gowns. These designers just hate women. •* -x- * THE OLD GOAT is getting fed up to here with the Danny Kaye show. That joker just can't stay out of a guest appearance, horning in maybe because he's afraid someone will forget him. He has to be on camera all the time, and a bigger hunk of ham is difficult to imagine though some try hard. And he isn't funny any more, just the same stuff. When he has dancers kicking up their heels what do you see — his mug filling the screen with just a suggestion of something going on in the background. Phooey! # * •* THE ROLLING Stones should have kept on rolling if their appearance on the Ed Sullivan show is any indication. A more gosh-awi'ul torturing of music, if it was supposed to be that, couldn't be imagined. They're worse than the Beatles and that's hard to do. A cat and dog figiil has more melody. The heck of it is they laugh at us all the way to the bank. Expert — One who can take a subject you already know and make it sound confusing.
