They seem to be missing from the want ad section these days. And n few beautiful phrases are creeping | nto the "for rent" ads that have akcn their place. Words like "child- en welcome." "children considered,' 1 "near school and playground." Ami do yon remember when "one o a customer" signs were posted over boxes of soap flakes, when there WERE snap flakes? Now It's quest (cm of which box top you want—the one you scud in to get bulbs for the gnrde:i or silver for the Inble. Remember also when a runner In your only pair of nylons was a great tragedy? Now it's just nn amusing news story when, dvic to some chcn\- knl reaction, nylons stnil falling upart oti women's legs.
