•eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee >. I. 0. •eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoeee THERE'S ENOUGH misery and trouble in this silly old world without the picture of a Viet Nam Chinese profiteer being shot by a firing squad in the family newspapers of this country. Why go to the end of the earth' to show a cruel and miserable thing to feature with a picture showing the guy crumbling under the blast? Worse, much much worse, was the showing of the actual shooting on television, and picturing the screaming wife and the fellow's children crying as guards held them back. THIS is civilization? Maybe the guy deserved it and all that, but it isn't something to be dished up here. Shouldn't there be a bit of dignity reserved even for the condemned? * # # YUCCCKI The manufacturers of that evil smelling dish sauerkraut arc endeavoring to make it more appetizing by flavoring the stuff. If the Old Goat's memory is any good the stuff doesn't need much flavoring or aroma, having plenty of its own. But the folks selling the stuff are suggesting having it flavored with cheese, pineapple (URR- RRRUUP) tomato chunks, red hot peppers and such stuff. The Old Goat is not numbered among those who love the dish—in fact if the Old Goat is going to eat at the same table it will be on the windy side at a picnic, and the Old Goat detests picnics. The last time the Old Goat was on a picnic a happy little feathered friend made a contribution right on the Old Goat's plate. It was unfortunate the little feathered friend did not understand the more bitter words of the English language the Old Goat addressed to our feathered friend and the world in general at that moment. # # # ISN'T THE AUDIENCE getting a bit fed up with Ed Sullivan's dopey Italian mouse?

In fact Rome was a bit cold. That's where all the fuss started if the Old Goat remembers correctly, and it's a good place to end it—but quietly please.

BIRTHDAY CLUB The Rebekah Birthday club was entertained Wednesday evening by Mrs. Elizabeth Old Goat would bet it's Ed's favorite because Ed can get in on the act and make like he's a performer. In the first place all puppets are an offense against nature. They were used in olden days to lampoon kings and stuff like that so the guy wielding the sticks and lines wouldn't get his head chopped off by an offended potentate. # * # THE OLD GOAT has always been completely baffled by the magicians and the one the other night on TV picking birds out of the air had the Old Goat all bulging eyes. In fact the Old Goat hasn't caught one since the old chau- tauqua days when they were a favorite in the big tent set up on the old Central school grounds where the high school is now. (The Old Goat saw the egg the guy pulled out of the Old Goat's ears). Other thrillers were the bands, the Williams Jubilee singers, and even William Jennings Bryan. But topping them all for the youngsters of those pre-radio days was the magician. •x- * * ONE OF ALGONA'S matrons suggested to the Old Goat he comment on the Swartz column item about a man wearing a woman's garter belt to hold up his long winter-style socks. Phooey! When the Old Goat was a boy and wore knee britches all boys wore garter belts at tached to their underwear to hold their long black ribbed stockings up. Some of the more daring, it was reported, held theirs up with a rubber band. So what else is new? (Those were, also the happy days of the button shoe.)
