§•••••••••*•«•*••••••••• ••••••••••••••••••••••A* THE OLD GOAT is getting mighty fed up with these commercials for post-nasal drip, deodorants, headache goop, and stuff lor his tired blood. In fact it's making his blood mighty ti red to have to listen to the pitchmen rattle off the merits of their product and pooh-pooh ing any other. The Old Goat takes himself a shower every morning whether he needs ii or not, uses the kind of soap and stuff to make him sociall; acceptable, and durned if it has done a thing for him socially He still gets startled looks! May be it's the Old Goat's face, wh ich is nothing to brag about but it's the only one the Ol< Goat has and he has to look at it (ugh) every morning when he shaves it. At any rate the Old Goat has wiped off his list any product with obnoxious advertising, including that "younger generation" yack about a soft drink. Phooey!

The Old Goat's attention was called anonymously to a clipping from Monday's female section sen which said as follows: "The garterless girdle in a long-leg style has a web elastic band around the inside of the leg. The leg is worn over the top of the hosiery holding it securely in place." That ansf wers that! However the vision of a dame with a long-leg girdle is enough to give most men the whim whams. The Old Goat was sure the girls had something figured out but now that he knows how it is he's not so sure he wanted to know. So what.else is new in the female harness section?

This contest is sponsored by the North face down on the floor with arms stretched out in front of you resting on the floor and legs straight. Lift arms, head, shoulders and legs as far off the floor as you can. Lower arms, head, shoulders and legs to the floor, do not bend the knees. Continue doing this slowly. With practice you will be able to raise your shoulders and legs farther up." The Old Goat gave it a try. His slump flowed to each side, and after one feeble attempt he dismissed everything after "lie floor". on the IN A STORY on how the starlings were messing up the White House grounds it said the birds would leave if off- key music were played. Seems th birds are sensitive to sounds. Now starlings are not native to this country but were imported from England by a missguided bird lover and they take over perches in the cities and they are the reason for that "dirty bird" slogan of some time back. The Old Goat is certain if the Beatles and those other awful- sound makers played under the trees at the White House the starlings would go back to England. Don't know which would be the worst—the Beatles or the dirty birds. * * * THERE'S ONE way to watch Ed Sullivan's burleque and the Old Goat stumbled on to it by accident Sunday. He had the sound turned off and a radio playing soft music waiting for something to show up on the idiot tube he wanted to see and hear. First thing the Old Goat knew he was in the middle of Perry Mason and didn't get in on the kill. Taking a nap is a nice way to watch Ed's menagerie. * if >» A DISTURBING new product on the market is this perfume for men pitched by a gal lying on a couch with a "sic 'em tiger" closing line.
