If s a pretty sorry mess when five percent of the kookie students take over and run things — and it happens at some pretty large halls of higher learning. SUPPOSE you read about that fellow (59 years of age) who just married for the 18th time. And 16 of his brides have been teenagers. The latest wife of the guy is an 18-year old German-born gal by the name of Ester (Kitty) Katz. And the newlyweds met while both were attending a cosmetology school. Happy returns 1 THE Indians had no taxes, no national debt, no war in Vietnam and the women did all the work. Look how far we've progressed since then. Stolen from the Corydon Times-Republican. GOT tired (as you probably did, also,) a few nights ago from watching part of the United Nations gobbledegook about the war in the Middle East — so did something we all should do more of — grabbed a few World Books and went into research. As a starter, decided to study up on the countries, at least most of them, involved in the off-again, on-again conflict. Here's some of what we gleaned: ISRAEL- Formerly Palestine, capital - Jerusalem; 7,815 square miles (compare that with Iowa's 56,290 square miles), it's 265 miles from the north to south border and 70 miles east to west; elevations range from a high of 3,963 feet to a low of minus 1,286 feet; population 2,400,000 and an average of 307 persons per square mile (compare this again with Iowa, 2,757,537 and 49), with 70 percent living in cities; products include citrus fruits, cotton, eggs, grain, vegetables, chemicals, machinery, precision instruments, textiles and tools. THE woman who declares she won't marry till she's 30 usually remains 30 till she gets married— Clarinda Herald Journal.

JORDAN - Capital - Amman ; 37,301 square miles, 230 north to south and 230 east to west; elevation from a high of 5,755 to low of minus 1,286; population - 1,825,000, density, 49 per mile with 45 percent living in cities; products include barley, fruit, goats, lentils, sheep, vegetables, wheat and wool. SYRIA - Capital - Damascus ; area 71,227 square miles, ranging from 310 .miles north to south and 400 miles east to west; elevation 9,232 high to sea level, low ; population 5,275,000, with 74 percent in cities; and products are barley, cotton, fruits, olives, livestock, sugar beets, wool, wheat, cement, dried fruits, leather, processed food oils, soap, sugar, tobacco, asphalt, building stone and gypsum. THE information above may not thrill you any more than the U.N. in action (?) - but at least you don't need an interpreter I NOTED with some interest the other day (although not much) the 10 best selling books in the United States in the past 50 years. The question is, how many have you read ? "Of Human Bondage", "Crime and Punishment", "The Sound and the Fury", "Ulysses", "War and Peace", "Anna Karenina", "The Brothers Karamazov", "Tom Jones", "The Republic" and "The Trial". One of the few iTecognized was "Tom Jones"and 1 didn't read it - I know him, he's a junior at Algona High School and his dad's name is Don. They're a pretty nice family the Joneses. IS it true that wild beasts in the jungle will not harm you if you carry a torch?" "It all depends," replied the explorer and big game hunter, "on how fast you carry it."
