Serve of Rotary registrat fan desk THE KIDS PET parade Saturday was an amusing and yet kind of a sad affair for the likes of the Old Goat who recalls the days of his youth more faintly (but better) as time marches on. Anyway for a wonder there were no cat fights though one female watcher said she would have loved to have tossed her cat in the middle of the passle of dogs and watched the re suits. Says her cat could take on the whole kit and kaboodle of pooches, a healthy order. Braggin' a bit? In the old day* a boy and a stray dog came to an understanding all by themselves and if permitted to keep the poooh after considerable begging and pleading the dog adopted the family en masse. Now the pooch has to be shot full of this and that, and some of them, have pedigrees longer than their master's. But the old time mutt gave loyalty and love, without question or doubt. * # * NOW DOGS have to be on leash and in Des Moines the strays are being shot and whoop-te-do caused over it. In the old days a dog was a eon- stant companion of the kids in the family. There wasn't any TV to watch, and there wasn't much a kid did that the dog wasn't welcome. A boy rode a bike or walked, and the dog could amble along. There were no cars for kids. Most pooches were aclimated to constant change of people and welcomed each and every stranger. There was no great amount of growling or biting. The dog knew he was a dog and knew his place and kept it. Being a mongrel the pooch wasn't taking on any airs. Too many dogs today v seem to think they are people and the way some are.kept and pampered they are' entitled to think so. * m * THE WOMAN'S page in the Demon Register Monday reveal ed what a woman carries in her handbag or purse as she calls it. The trend now is to smaller ones. Recently the girls havi been toting what seems to be a least an overnight bag just in case they get an invitation fo the evening. Anyway many a husband has been nagged into emptying his pockets (of the junk he totes around when going out for the evening to some social event and finds the stuff he loves replaced by his wife's lipstick, mirror, comb and assorted odds and ends which seem to be essential. The evening purse the girls carry is just to show the other girls. The stuff that should be in them is in the husband's pocket. Of course the men have pockets galore, even pockets within the pockets. The men don't resent the lumpy appearance but if a woman's pockets were so stuf fed they'd look awful instead of sleek. * >!> * DAYLIGHT SAVING has raised heck with the Old Goat's built-in clock. It gets late before the Old Goat is ready at night, and the Old Goat isn't ready to get up when he has to. Maybe he'll get used to it but then it will be the same kind of a deal getting used to reversing the situation next fall. li tank MteHM In VM HIM Vlttnam (FMTNC) April 18 — Marine Staff Sergeant Bernard E.

It was quite a lopsided win for us so may not seem important to Algona, but it surely is to us even though it may have been just a practice meet. Others have been written up in your pa per so we feel this should have been too.

THESE HAPPY WOMEN bo uncing around on TV with a new detergent make the Old Goat sick. Phooey—this added, improved, new, revised, and green, pink, blue, or poiple crystals is just a come-on to sell the product in the Old Goat's biased opinion. No woman the Old Goat ever knew ran whooping around belleiing her wash was whiter than her neighbor's. And the same thing goes for those toothpaste commercials which are stupid. Why the ADA let itself get conned into "accepting" any of that junk is a mystery. Frankly plain old soda will do it just as well. AIM: as for other obnoxious advertising such as those for headache to relieve irregularity, to hold false teeth firmly and deorodor ized, and so on the Old Goat makes a careful note of the product and wouldn't buy it for any money or trouble. Authors of these commercials are sick sick sick.
