Instructs At Workshop IN THE PAPERS one day last week was reported the woes of one of the movie greats having to pay alimony. Seems he got in dutch with No. 3 because of a certain laxness in meeting the payments, and she sued him in Court. That roused up No. 1 and No. 2, who came in. on the deal fitting their payments. Seems the poor guy has to pay more in a month to these former helpmeets than he was making, the judge wasn't very sympathetic, nor is the Old Goat going to waste any sympathy on him. Three times and out is the old ball game and if he didn't learn anything from No. 1 arid No. 2 It's time for No. 3 to wise, the Joker up that women are expensive—even one at a time.' •"'••-.'•,' *.'*.• ONE OF THE local younger generation grandmothers gavo tha Old Goat the following clipping: "No need to kavia your (awalry at homo whan you go to tha boach or taaya it on tha beach .when you go into tha watar.

Tha Grandma's nota wondars whether thaso ara to waar with tha n«w toplats bathing suits!

These oldies are just as good as they were and are mighty pleasant to the ear. While.the men are nothing to drive a young girl wild about, the dancers on the show are pleasant enough to look at without giving the Old Goat any utfge. And the singing is on key and sung the way the writer wrote it, something dangled unusual in this day of "stylists" who murder a tune with .flats and sharps all over the place. There's harmony instead of the modern trend to complete discord. Frankly the Old Goat thinks most of these modern female yelpers get their claim to fame in night clubs where the customers are so spiffed it doesn't matter much how they sing. * * # POOR LITTLE GIRL of over the rainbow. Judy Gar land is filing for divorce from her latest husband of torn* eight months marriage. Judy has also lost htr voice and now depends too much on growls and off-btat tinging instead of the sweat tones sho had as tha littU girl from Kansas. Tim* marchas on. ,»!>>! PHOOEY! The gazettes are having quite a fuss about Lynda Bird paying $200 for a hair-do. Judging from the pictures it isn't worth it, but some fellow has a good thing going for him in this hair racket. He makes the women beg him and then charges the heck out of them. One poor husband remarked to his wife just once that the beauty parlor didn't seem to do much for a woman after casually inspecting a just returned doed-up hair deal, He never made that mistake again. Seems the result is more for the feminine ego than for appearances. And "permanents" are certainly mis-named. * * * THE OLD GOAT is going to miss Perry Mason when it goes off the air this spring. Of course there will be re-runs, but no new ones. Raymond Burr, who plays Perry Mason, is in the big chips and doesn't have to work any more if he doesn't want to. The Old Goat was always lost in the plot about halfway through, and marveled at the way the writers managed to get the real culprit into position for Perry to knock hinj off. Perry loft two cases early in the series some 12 years ago, but hasn't since, and to the finale he wins two murder cases jn one hour to dose ®& series, # ' "# * SOME WOMEN are fussing »bout tJ^ way a woman walks and says it isn't necessary to.
