They serve you climate with all your meals; It's so dandy lhat your hot back peals. The Ananias Club includes the Stale . From Dago Town lo Ihe Golden gale. The movie stars marry Iwice a year; Would do il oflener if the way were clear. The grapefruit here is surely fine, A cross twixl lemon and pumpkin rind. Here cows eat barley instead of hay And the butler gets scarcer day by day. They sell you lots that were made by hand And make you think it is really land. The view of the ocean is very nice: This is included with the price. They claim it is wet if it rains once a year; You get so dry you can't shed a tear. So tune up your flivver and starl for Ihe wesl, Where Ihe jobs are scarce and Ihe pay is less. Bring all of your cash and plenty of clolhes_, How you gel any more the Lord only knows. I'm telling this story which I " know is true; **As'I've seen it through Ralph Miller's periscope, too. John P. Byson, 4586 Wilson Ave., San Diego, Cal. BACK,-MOTORCYCLE JOURNEY TO TEXAS Lone Rock.
