GRASSROOTS! GLEANINGS From The Ripon (Wis.) Commonwealth-Press comes the following: "A sensible girl is more sensible than she looks, because a sensible girl has more sense than to look sensible." • If men had no faith in one another, comments The Sibley (Iowa) Tribune, all of us would have to live within our incomes. • "Teen-age marriages are a risk, but so are the other kind," says the Pipestone (Minn.) County Star. • The Clear Lake (S.D.) Courier defines a highbrow as: A person who enjoys a thing until it becomes popular. • On the subject of men's colognes, The Lima (Ohio) News quotes a cosmetic expert as saying, "In many homes scents are already interchangeable, and the husbands and wives use the same fragrances and deodorants." First the sexes start to look alike, then they start to smell alike. What next? • The Custer County Chief of Broken Bow, Neb., tells about the doctor who left the following instructions for his patient: "Give him a tranquilizer at three o'clock and my bill at four o'clock." "Some roads are so bad," says The Clay City (Ind.) News, "that it seems as if the highway departments are promoting detourism." • "It's other folks' dogs and children that make most of the bad feelings between neighbors," claims The Jamestown (N.D.) Sun. • The Winner Advocate of Winner (S.D.), reports that, "A member of the Women's Auxiliary Corps of the Army may marry after enlistment but if she becomes a mother she must resign." Does this mean that Uncle Sam doesn't like mothers or babies ? • The trouble with today's young people, according to The Morris (Minn.) Tribune, is they all want to look different in the same way. • "Keeping your husband in hot water will not make him tender," advises The Slater (Mo.) News-Rustler. • The Devils Lake (N.D.) Journal reports the following item of natural science: "The unusual and twisted windpipe of a crane, a large bird, may measure five feet from the throat to the lungs." You knew that all along? • The Marshall (Minn.) Messenger reported a mysterious purple man was seen in the area east of the Tracy cemetery. Could it be that Santa Glaus has got some kind of a new "hip" uniform? • "One thing about the speed of light," laments The Salem (S.D.) Special, "is that it gets here too early in the morning." The Morris (Minn.) Tribune says, "Most people who insist their child is a thinker—lisp." • "How can a horse full of hay give you such a rough ride?" asks the Lancaster (Pa.) Farming. • The best salesman is the one who knows how to miss a six-foot putt by one inch, says The Dell Rapids (S.D.) Tribune. • Uncle Sam is stronger than Atlas, claims The Traer (Iowa) Star-Clipper, because he carries the world—with both hands in his pockets. • The Macon (Mo.) Chronicle-Herald reports that at a recent women's club meeting it was estimated that 60 per cent wore rouge, 35 per cent of those present tinted their hair, 75 per cent plucked their eyebrows, 80 per cent had permanent waves, 85 per cent wore eye shadow, 90 per cent wore fingernail polish, 100 per cent used lipstick, and 10 per cent wore false eye lashes and other cosmetic camouflage. The subject of their discussion was, "Deceptive Packaging." • This one comes from the Culver (Ind.) Citizen: The bright pupil looked long and thoughtfully at the examination question which read, "State the number of tons of coal shipped out of the United States in any given year." Then his brow cleared and he wrote: "1492— None." • "Turtles and fowls have no teeth," reports the Tell City (Ind.) Thursday News, which means that the Christmas turkey cannot bite back, unless, of course, you make a pig out of yourself.
