«««. c.«. r.««. »*. u. INDEPENDENT-- P*g» C-7 Mewers? No, They're Yewers j.. TIIOMEY By TED THOMEY ' Cats. cats. cats. cats. cats. Everybody In Long seach teems to be troubled these spring nights by the agonized cries of lovesick cats. Picture if you can the plight of Bert G. Fisher, an 50-year-old cal-hatcr who lives at 1622 Obispo Ave. He writes that at the moment he's just one jump ahead of going barefooted "because I have thrown my ncxt-to-my-Iast pair of shoes at the cats." Fisher's troubles are caused by a neighbor's fertile mama cats who have produced scads of little K itl and little boy cats who insist on howling it up every night. In tribute to them. Fisher (who formerly ran a Pike flea circus) sent me a poem called "The Schocnbcrgcr Cats." It ,, was too lengthy to be reproduced (that's ,,-a pun, Bert) in full here, but I do have room for the · fourth verse, which is quite clever: "When Ihcy'rc cjtpccling. they're quilc systematic. *. "They don't have their young home, fhcy go up in ". . our allic. "When I say 'Neighbor Ixitiy. come get your mewers.' "She rays 'Won't be silly. Ihcy'rc not mine they're yours'." -A- -A- * A VISIT TO THE THREE CROWNS--As I've mentioned before. Swedish smorgasbord restaurants arc all the rage now in this area, providing lots of good food cafeteria-style at low prices. Mrs. T., our 3%-ycar-oId daughter and I this week visited a new one In Compton--the Three Crowns Restaurant at 15009 S. Atlantic, just north of Compton Boulevard. Owned by two former Stockholm couples, Ivan and Margaret Wahlstcdt and Ruth and Karl Wester, the Three Crowns is a large place tastefully decorated in yellows and blues. We first served ourselves a do/en cold items chilled on beds of chipped ice. These included pickled herring and a raft of fresh salads and appetizers. Then we FISHER enjoyed six hot dishes, including delicious Swedish meatballs, pork chops, mashed jKjtatocs, string beans, spaghetti and baked beans. Desert was rice pudding with cherry sauce. The price for everything (except beverages) was $1.50 for ths adults and 70 cents for Miss T. Waitress Marian Wendy's sen-ice was excellent. Footnote: 'Three Crowns" is n popular business name in Stockholm. It hail its beginning in the early J!JOO« wl;cn wimchndy nailed throe kroner nlon Slncfe- holm'.t rify half.

Then, while you're waiting for the traffic light to turn green, n cop appears out of nowhere and places a NO LEFT TURN sign sm.ick d.ib in the middle of the intersection!

O'Ncll's Rig restaurant.' 2951 Cherry Ave., have been switched to Fridays, from 8 to 9 p.m. GO, GO, GO, GO, GO--I received a spoofing letter from Jack Edmond. 603 St. Louis Ave.. a former cook who declared that my report on Jake Jacobs' chicken- pie-making skill was a truth-stretcher, full of blarney "and chicken feathers." Wrote Edmond: "If he made 2'/ 2 million pics in 12 years, that means he would produce lli P' cs a minute. S hours daily, 6 days a week without stopping for a coffee break, smoking or a visit to the men's room." I rcchcckcd my statistics with Jake, who works at the Chicken Pie Shop, 737 Pine Ave., and he replied modestly: "Heck, when I'm going good I make two complete pies a minute, sometimes more. And when I work with a couple of assistants, I make 10 pics a minute!" How about that. Mr. Edmond? Prime Itih-Oifokeii 2V*r Only Place of Its Kind on the Coast Ph. HE 7-5124 733 E.
