••••••••*••••«•••••••••• f YICCCKI An alligator got loose from a house where it was being kept as a pet. (It sure takes all kinds . . . ) It had been brought back from Florida by a kid and the durned thing had grown to four and half foot long. Now that's a pretty fair sized hunk of alligator to be roaming around loose. Anyway the folks who let it get away advertised for it and warned that the beastie Was a bit "delicate". The Old Goat don't know from, twice, but describing an alligator as "delicate" seems polishing the apple quite a bit. Anyway the Old Goat is going to lay off the giggle water until after that beast has been found. Pink elephants are not so bad—but alligators—whooo- <•, > All Dearths children home for parents 50th anniversary Mr. and MM.

Seems in Florida a doting father and his daughter had an idea for a wedding gimmick to ond all gimmick*, but once the bridegroom hoard of it ho took off into the wild blue yonder on the next plane and the fuss had to be called off. The bride was supposed to descend down a pink staircase with a machine making smoke so she seemed to be walking oh clouds—like coming down from heaven and all that sort of stuff. It was to be held at a hotel probably because no church would have a pink stairway and the idea of heaven there is going the opposite way. Anyway the groom heard of it and he hasn't been seen since. The gal's pappy had a lot of loot but evidently not enough to hold that young man. And any girl who would put on that kind of a show might not be the kind of a homebody the fellow had in mind. Maybe marriages are made in heaven and all that sort of stuff, but this was carrying it a bit too far. The Old Goat applauds. » * * WHAT'S WITH TEETH any way that the makers of all the goop for the food choppers are coming out with obnoxious com mercials for their products. The makers of (ugh) denture- stick ers are running a close secom to the toothpaste commercials as being the worst on the air And being worst isn't easy eith er. They got the kids using the paste junk and now they're after those too late to save from the 'horrible cavities by warning of denture breath, etc. Phooey to the whole lot of them. * * * THIS IS A NEW ONE. So- ems a colored girl made application to get into a nudist camp and the camp management turned her down. She got mad, asserted her civil rights, and sued the outfit. The Old Goat wonders how the U. S. supreme court in all its dignity and stuff will approach that problem when it comes up on appeal. * # * SEEMS CHEAP! There was : classified in the personals section of the Demon Register Sun day which said: "Happy Birth day Betsy. The Office gang. Now that probably set the gang back a couple of bucks, ano spread the thing all over the state among people who couU care less whether Betsy had « birthday or not. Why didn' they give her the two bucks, or at least take up a collection o enough to make it worth while if they were to do anything 0 Anyway most Betsys would jus as soon not have another birth day spread all over the state. • * * * AMONG THE RE-RUNS on the idiot tube are some pretty good original shows, probably by accident. Anyway Micky Finn is an entertaining half hour when they don't push the guest star and let the regulars do the show. Sing Along with Mitch re runs are as good as the first time. The Hope-Crosby life-review was good for oldsters who remembered most of their scenes, and that showcase of internationals so far has been all right.
