"Going to eat me?" he asx. • ed. "Yes", replied the chief.; "Don't do it", advised the mis-' sionary, "you wouldn't like me." i lie took out his pocketknife, | sliced a piece from the calf of his leg and handed it to the chief. The chief grunted and spat it out. The missionary remained for 50 years. He had a cork leg.: * * * Man's body is remarkably sensitive.

Tiiey had tome to spend Thanksgiving ana the weekend with Zaida's sister .uoien jJingley and Bill's siruei and husband, Elizabeth and Joe Lowe. We dig back in the pasi quite a way, which is a sign ol years but it's sure fun. Bill is enjoying his retirement from administrator at the Veterans hospital over a considerable number of years and finds plenty to Keep him busy doing the "chore's" "around the house thej recently, purchased. And ol course' there is'always!'8 lot Of yard work to keep him young and busy. They plan to spend a couple of months in Texas, probably in the McAllen area, but won't go till a few weeks after Christmas. « « « Other callers have been Ray and Lila Potter, whom I also enjoy greatly. Too bad Bill and Zaida weren't here at the same time. Bill, Ray, Zaida and I were in high school at the same timfe, and could cover a lot of interesting topics. Ray is retired too and he can also find plenty'to do in the same general category as Bill. As for the women, they are deluged with the same old tasks— cooking, washing dishes, dusting and social outlets. Wonder what would happen if housewives retired? bectes* ihd Mffc aald I Was "resttftg whmUfffiffie or» phoned me the other day does not mean ! was sick.
