im*^f2f*mmuv**mnsa*w**^'^^**^*^i*i i •••» ' ' '••" i •.•.-...! GRASSROOTS GLEANINGS by BUI Stoke* The following lines were taken from a fashion writer's column in the Crookston (Minn.) Daily Times as she described new women's clothing designs: "Native wooden beads, or local nuts, buttoned and decorated coats and suits. Triangular pointed nuts formed a headdress and necklace as well as buttons." So ... nuts are involved in it all. • The greatest number of fights in a career is 1,309 fought by Abraham Hollandersky, reports the Anthony Wayne Standard of Waterville, Ohio. Hollandersky was boxer from 190518. We've got inlaws who are threatening the Hollandersky record. Have you? • "People who insist on burning their bridges behind them should be expert swimmers," advises The East Moline (111.) Herald This poetry comes from the Gratiot County Herald of Ithaca, Mich..: Junior's records blast and roar Through every ceiling, wall and floor. They moan and bleat and scream and sigh; They're plainly beat and so am I. "Sometimes it is hard to believe that this country was founded as a protest against taxation," says the Wayne County Press of Fairfield, 111. • The Ogden (Iowa) Reporter tells about the woman who was being interviewed on her 100th birthday. She told that her husband had died when he was in his sixties. "Good old Sam," she said. "I'm sure he went to heaven and I'm just as certain that by now, he's figured I went to the other place." • Perennials, According to The Union Register of Mount Gilead, Ohio, are flowering or foliage plants whose roots live from year to year. Their tops may or may not die back in the winter. I don't know about you, but I am a perennial; and I think my top died back last winter. • The Wapello (Iowa) Republican labels this one as "our grandson's favorite joke": Lady: "Well, Doctor, was my operation a success?" Man: "I'm not your doctor. I'm St. Peter." • "Few things are more expensive than a girl who is free for dinner," says The Slater (Mo.) News Rustler. Scientific note from the Chronicle-Herald of Macon, Mo.: "Cyrano de Bergerac tried to reach the moon by fastening bottles of dew around his waist. He thought that when the sun evaporated the dew he would rise into the air." Hooookay. • Sign in a gift shop as reported by the Denison (Iowa) Review: "These calendars are for the man who has everything, to remind him when the payments are due." • Among the fashion news reported in The Sun of Jamestown, N.D. is information of fur coats for men, including "a full length dream in un- plucked beaver for $799." Also available are his and her minks for $6,000 a pair, which certainly solves next Christmas shopping problems for many of us. • The Buffalo (S.D.) Times-Herald lists the pessimist's definition of ambition as: "working your head off at a job you don't enjoy, in a place you don't like, trying to save money you can't keep, in order to spend your declining years in idle boredom that you can't stand, at some place you won't like any better." • A senator is quoted in the Devils Lake (N.D.) Morning Journal as saying that he makes it a practice to accept no gift valued at more than $5, and he points out that a fifth of Scotch costs more than $5. He notes also that he drinks bourbon, which is slightly cheaper. • "The only 'cures' more numerous than those for the common cold," says The Lima (Ohio) News, "are those for a hangover. Both are equally effective." changed ^ the name to protect the innocent We changed our name from NABISCO Sugar Honey Graham Crackers to HONEY MAID Graham Crackers so you'd have no trouble finding the grahams made with pure, golden honey and real graham^ flour. HONEY MAID Graham Crackers are the very same light, wholesome and delicious NABISCO Sugar Honey Graham that you've loved for so long.
