Monday, Mary Martha at Mrs. LeRby Worby's, co-hostess, Mrs. James Jacobson. HEY NOW! This business of growing old may have something at that! Seems that at one rest home they are serving beer and sherry wine to the oldsters. The management says the old folks are much more apt to start conversations with others and thus for a while forget their aches and pains or whatever they think about all alone Sounds like a good idea. Some of these aged gents may think that woman of some 80 years is a real doll. It is said a few martinis in an aging gent makes all women look much younger, and perhaps a load of sherry would make an 80 year old woman take a second glance at that doddering fellow who looks younger. Maybe if the oldsters were about half tonked most of the time they'd be a lot happier and therefore healthier. Make them turn their thoughts outward instead of inward. The Old Goat wonders at what age that therapy is advised. # * * DISCRIMINATION, that's what it is. The professors at the university of Arizona have com* up with the idea of giving lower gradts to girls who wear too short dresses. When the Old Goat went to school it was grades that counted, but then the girls wore skirts that swept the ground. It seems a bit strange however to downgrade a student just because she wears • short skirt. In fact maybe some professors should be a bit more lenient in his grades if the shemale did let some leg show to brighten up his drab life. This kind of thinking should be nipped in the bud. WHo is qualified to say what the length of a skirt should be except the gal who wears them? What gives a professor the right to say a student should get a lower grade because of a higher skirt? If such be the case why not give a long-haired boy a lower grade if he didn't cut it—which would make more sense? THEY'VE DISCOVERED sq me "blue" people in Kentucky way back in the hills. Seems there's something in the water that gives the people a bluish tinge instead of the pinkish tone for the so-called whites. Frankly with this information coming out about April 15 the Old Goat believes the color may be caused by income tax sadness, making them mighty blue. * * * HORRORSI The paper that depends on Iowa came out with a story the girls art to paint designs on their legs. Seems they want to draw attention to them and the cosmetic sellers have come up with this idea to sell their product. Life is tough enough without having flowers, birds, scenes, etc. painted on the girls' legs. It's enough to show the leg as far as men are concerned, but then it is said the women do not dress for men —they dress to impress other women. Anyway the Old Goat would take a dim view of a couple of long-stemmed petunias ambling down the street toward him. THAT RADCUFF female college girl who advertised for a male roommate for a one-year marriage during school has admitted her advertisement was somewhat on the joke line, but that she got some 820 offers. Now the Old Goat being in the age when wisdom is the only consolation thinks any girl who advertised on that kind of a deal should be given a wide berth on the theory she means no good, and a fellow would be in deep water before he knew he couldn't swim. They sure didn't teach that kind of stufl in the colleges when the Old Goat was there—when is none of your business. * * * A WOMAN WAY down in South Africa in Johannesburg got a divorce from her husbam because he objected to her wearing slacks. The trouble is the gent really was upset and went after the woman with a pair of shears to trim her pants into shorts. The woman wasn' too sure where he would chop and beat it into the tall bushe to got away.
