A—ALOONA (Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 1966 Coffo Brtak . . . Better buy a Goya painting — that $130,000 DM Art Center Goya I've scoffed at is now (I'm told by a savant) appraised at $450,000. . . . Never honk rudely at an out-oftown car that's driving rudely—it may be the farmer who owns the mortgage on your house. ... A turtle-necked high* fcchool dandy tells me he supposes older men wear neckties only to wipe their glasses. ... You know that the DM banker's son who sailed around the world learned to sail on the DM rivor with his mom's bed- shoots as sails? », * * When a sportsman offered DM broker Al Kobson $25,000 lor his daughter's great snow- horse, which lias jumped all the nicer jumps, he saiu the girl goes with. Uie horse. "And she'd cost you," he added, "a cool $2o,OOU,000." * * * SPRING FLIRTATION I whistled at a bird and he whistled at me from the taper tip of a cottonwood tree I whistled his note as I passed and he lifted his bonnet and whistled at me. —JODIE Paullina * * .*-.•.:. r In my opinion, they ought to let the grass on the Governor's lawn grow naturally long. Cropping it short is a British custom, imported to the USA via Newport, It's kinda un- American. With long grass maybe a family could raise a sheep or two & grow its own mutton. safer way to travel" A few of the deeper thinkers at our Lunch Table have long argued Detroit ought to quit stuffing so many new cars down our throats & turn to building more pre-fab enameled steel houses. (If we ever run short of transportation we can always use flying Space Quilts, like tne calm Semitic gentleman above.) * * * I'm curious, whey do they finish the 9-hole pitch & putt golf course next to Mr. Blank's zoo for Iowa's children? All Iowa is invited to the zoo, & the daddies can play 9 holes of Par 3 golf while the kids look at the llama and the vicuna. 4l l|l !',! As nearly as I can figure, my BW's worst complaint aoout me is that 1 eat iood too last & drink coffee too slowly. I sip my coi'i'ee, as i do al my drinks. One hour to the highball is my motto, it ho wonder the bartenders hate me, or rather the saloon keepers. By the way, are ,t6wa's sa* loon keepers making a pile of money? * * * Once again I mutt admit I was wrong: I have argued that the second marriage of divorced persons was sure to be worse than the first. Well, we saw 3 re-married pairs at the club the other evening, A all 3 are turning out very well indeed. All three couples have defeated the world's most common disease—which is loneliness. * * * If the Governor telephones Evy tnis week, maybe we could have a football game between Iowa & Iowa State by 1970 or so. . . I'm for this game, (1) because it beats any game between SUI & Oregon State, & (2) because it might help ISU enlarge their grandstand so they could hold 50,000 spectators & with the extra money hire better players. — NOW — YOUR COMPLETE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHED IN NATURAL COLOR FOR THE SAME LOW PRICE AS BLACK & WHITE Formats - Candids - Thank You's FREE WEDDING BOOK FOR YOUR CANDID STORY Glenn's Studio 107 South Harlan Algona, Iowa JayCees check 250 cars or of thelf (laughterJoyce were Mf.

Romain" Mm up to my old crusade of improving the Iowa State Fair, which this year MUST b* batter than either Minnesota's or Missouri's. Above is the tumbling act I suspect the Fair bosses are angling for.

That Goya picture isn't worth $450,000, either. . . When do the State House & the Hubbsll family begin to negotiate about using the Ter- raca Hill mansion as a Governor's residence? . . .
