10-Tuesday, Nov. 26, 1968 Palm Beach Post HMMM.M, Why Not Be A Farmer? Fihrirt NOW OPEN 10:30-4:00 Riddle Solved GLASGOW, Scotland (WNS) Clothing manufacturers here were puzzled when they began receiving orders from West German stores for kilts that would never fit a grown man. The waist measurements were lady-size, and the lengths were just right for children. Investigation revealed that they were to be mini-kilts for coeds, and the first order was for 10,000 kilts. ing to take the cow and that'll start me off." "What did you name the cow?" asked his father. "BIG BILL!" he said proudly. No one said anything for quite a while. It could be worse, I guess. He could go into gynecology.

("People are always giving them candy.") Last week he produced his biggest aspiration to date. "I want to be a farmer," he announced at dinner. His brother was the only one with strength enough to ask why. "Because," he said, "they get up real early in the morning get all their work done and then they have all day to sit around and watch television." "That's not exactly the way it is," explained my husband. "Farmers work very hard and long hours." "Have you checked those TV antennas," he replied. "Those are lightning rods!" his father said. "Besides, it costs a lot of money to be a farmer." "I got that all figured out," he said. "I entered a name-a-cow contest. The first prize is either the cow or $500. I'm go By ERMA BOM BECK it bothers most parents that their children do not know what they want to be when they grow up. It bothers some of us that they do. I've got one kid who wants to be a pilgrim. He says they wear mod clothes. Another one wants to be a spy. (He hasn't said for whose side, but he wears an armband and has my mattress bugged.) One is still open for offers. He is inclined to change his mind every three hours. When he was five he wanted to own a lot of houses. The idea of a son in real estate gave all of us a firm, secure feeling. "You've made a wise choice," his father counselled. "There is always a demand for good housing and a good feeling knowing you are supplying a real need." "I don't care about that," he said. "I just want to play on the steps without someone yelling at me." He went through other phases, of course.

She had to pass a passenger going toward the bar. "Watch it. bud!" she growled. The train lurched and the top of her drink splashed over a man in the nearest seat. "Don't make faces at me!" she snarled. "If you don't like this railroad, fly next time." After a few more bumps and collisions, she got through the car. Then another girl carrying a drink came out of the bar car. At the next lurch, her fanny was banged against a seat. "It's happening to ME!" she said with a laugh. She took a deep sip of the drink so she wouldn't spill any on other passengers. We hit a rough spot on the road and she was shaken right and left. She laughed and said, "They ought to sell this road to Disneyland!" to a banker-type gent in a nearby seat. As she passed several people in the aisle, she smiled and held the drink high, trying not to splash them and still give them room. Each one grinned back. When she got to my seat. I said to her. "Young lady, you are my type of girl. Will you marry me?" "I can't." she said. "You see, Dennis, I married you years ago. And here's the drink you sent me for." By DENNIS MURRAY There's a funny little railroad I sometimes ride. Instead of a regular bar car. it uses an empty baggage car in which planks have been set up to make a bar. I usually try to get a seat in the car behind the improvised bar car. first, because it is handy, second, because there are no seats in the baggage-saloon car and, third, because it is usually jammed to the doors. Many riders, to escape the jam. buy drinks and take them to their seats. When I rode the train last week. I watched a girl come out of the bar car carrying' a drink and trying to navigate the aisle of my car.
