Those; two pitchers Who held oinV crashed through with a to-' tat of $210,000 pet year which is quite a bit of moolah even after taxes. Presumably they had some lawyers in on the deal to avoid as much tax as they could legally. Anyway when, they pay some football player a bonus of $400,000 to sign, and stuff like, that, the Old Goat always is suspicious some hanky panky is going, on .and Jie big fifure is'mbre for publicly purposes than in actual cash to the, player. Sure , th% .active itite of a ^player is 'coriipara1ively;i9hort,; but at the same time a "fellow 5 in business getting that* kind of big time money also has a short and ulcer-ridden life; It just seems too durned much. * * f "•''•':. •% WONDER IF the headline writer in the Demon Register April 1 is in contempt of court when he wrote: "Appeal Skunk River Dam Ruling".

THE TV REVIEWER for the paper that depends on Iowa gave the Barbra' deal a big-hurrah, but as far as the Old Goat is '-'I concerned it was a wasted hour. Maybe Barbra can sing, but if so she didn't do it on that show. Of course the Old Goat's idea of singing is^still Bing Crosby and Mitch Miller. And they had a yelper on the Gleason show that sounded like tosses someone was, sticking needles Donne info her causing her to" yelp. Bub, that just isn't music. A pack of howling dogs has more harmony. In fact the 'tor mous Bugle Ann of the dog story had a more musical note. With the exception of Lawrence Welk the modern orchestra also seems to go back to the African jungle for its beat and idea of> harmony. Everyone goes His own way and how they all end at'fthe same time must be a trade secret. Maybe the reason they tell what .song they are supposed to be playing is to le't the viewer feel relieved of the job of wondering, what it was supposed to be. . Anyway, the Demon Register boy 'notwilthK standing, Barbra didn't sing oh thjat show. So there! ise McFarlarid. f , .Gladys Circle: P^es.

Latest seems to be a mechanical toothbrush which is advertised proudly as boinfj "accepted" by the ADA as OK providing of course there is also "professional care" which means a dentist, It does seem to the Old Goat the profession is lowering its dignity by endorsing or "accepting" a private deal and letting the name be dragged into a puff commercial; Out; toothpaste has hammered at it until it is nauseating, to sav the least. As far as the Old Goat is concerned none of these patent deals are worth a hoot in you know wht< YEAH— THE OLD GOAT and his grandchildren stood each other as long as they could and the Old Goat is back from the sun.ny southland. Outside of blowing a couple of tires, being robbed by one motel operator, ea^ng tourist food, and burping wilih his stomach uncoated by thajt junk advertised on the idiot tube the Old Goat had himself a whee of a time. But coming back out of 80-degree weather into the freezing temperatures dicj nothing to make the Old ' Goat more agreeable. The Old Goat is thankful to a colored man in Missouri. The Old Goat blew a tire on the Interstate 35 wit/h cars zipping along.
