B. •••••••••••t•••••••••••• ED SULLIVAN said the other night that his show has been on the telly for 18 years, and he seemed quite proud of it. At least it has outlasted a lot of better shows. One awful part of the deal is when Ed points out some horse jockey, or other notable of the moment and asks the gent to stand up and take a bow. They do with a "Look ma! I'm on telewission." Now the word is these are carefully staged and timed and most of the time the only time the celebrity is in the audience is just before he is scheduled to be introduced. Ed's show used to have a variety of acts, but now has degenerated into a mess of singers who can't sing and comedians who aren't very funny except by mistake. The only saving feature is that the one that's on isn't on very long. Ed's ballyhoo of "cumon less- hereit" appeal for applause is pretty forced stuff. * # * THIS IS THE ag« of th« poll, when by carefully worded questions a poll taker can tell how the entire country is going to react to something or an election. Frankly the Old Goat has never met anyone who was contacted in such a deal. It is said the sample consists of from 1800 to 5000 people who can indicate how the rest of the some 180,000,000 people will react. Phooey—no one can tell what the Old Goat's going .to do most of the time—even the Old Goat is kept in the dark! Of course maybe the poll-takers have a nut they check to see how the Old Goat reacts, but one nut in 1500 is too large a sampling, in the Old Goat's : case. However it is noted the poll takers are very carefuj not to brag until,.after the election etc. is over and then they yelp how they were proved right. * * * THE OLD GOAT'S nudist friend in sunny dilly California was intrigued by a comment of a few columns ago about nudists 'and dared the Old Goat to come out and see for himself. This nudist friend uses a typewriter and doesn't sign the missive so the Old Goat is in the dark as to whether he's a he or she's a she, and in the dark is the only way the Old Goat will ever get trapped in a nudist camp without his britches on. Anyway he or she says there's no fear of mosquitoes. It's a shame there are no mosquitoes for a fellow could claim he was swatting a mosquito when he had the urge to whomp a fat dame on the whomping territory. These tight pants the younger generation wears presents a terribe temptation, » * * ACCORDING TO all the laws of nature as revealed by women it's a woman's pero- gative to climb the walls screaming if she sees a mouse. Then the paper that depends on Iowa comes out with a story about a woman who raises white mice- and let* them climb on her arm for a picture, Frankly the Old Goat prefers the wall-climbing variety for the simple reason the Old Goat is a kindred soul as far as mice and snakes are concerned. He can't take them and he leaves them alone as fast as he can get to- heck out of where the boas- ties are. * * * YOU CAN'T WIN, even in love! An Orange City man was driving down the street in Pittsburgh when his girl friend gave him a kiss. A policeman gave HIM a ticket for reckless driving. He blew his cork in protesl and the policeman gave him another ticket for disorderly conduct. The guy got really mac and tore up and threw away the ticket and the policeman charged him with littering the street! The guy wasn't too smart. He should have turned the girl friend loose on the policeman. Maybe she could have giv en the policeman a, kiss, or screamed police brutality and climbed the poor guy's frani.e. He wouldn't dare adroit a woman cleaned his clock so as a sadder and wiser man hie would have closed his eyes and forgotten the whole thing.
