UJith MALCOLM EPLEY rPO THE MEN: If you get sleepy during a haircut, don't suspect there's something special the matter with you. My barber tells me that !)0 per cent of his customers d r o w s e . None, however, ever went to sleep and fell off the chair. . . . Men gel sensuous pleasure out of having someone fool with their hair -- something all women know well. MY RAINFA-LL NOTES in- elude a report from R. M. Stevens, who heard some ghostly crying in the night, went out in the storm and saw a big flock of wild geese right low over head at Carson and Bellflower. The honking birds were headed northwest, if t h a t means anything. I also had a l i t t l e special experience in the showers. Driving home after leaving my car outside, 1 heard w a t e r swishing, like in a h a l f - f i l l e d l u b . 1 felt the floor of Ihc rear scat, found it dry. I stopped and opened I h c t r u n k c o m p a r t m e n t , found it also dry. Checking Ihc inside of Ihc car again. 1 swung t h e righf side door and the puzzle was solved. The door was half f u l l of water. j^OURTH FLOOR of Long Beach's now Public Safety Building is to be given over entirely to the city's Juvenile Department. It's a big, complex layout/ to be devoted mainly to h a n d l i n g ( h e problems of wayward youth. The f i f t h and s i x t h floors w i l l be the jail for adults. And this prompted a policeman friend of m i n e lo comment t h a t if you could l a k e care of t h a t , s i t u a t i o n on the f o u r t h floor, t h e r e wouldn't need lo be f i f t h and " i v i l \ floors, Guess t h i l l ' s right.

The service club's c f l o r t in t h i s m a t t e r is of course commendable--and also intcresi- i n g to the members of my K i w a n i s C l u b howling team who occasionally meet t h e Exchange teams on the alleys. Those fellows will rub you b l i n d at bowling, accepting Ihc scores on slnkcs and spares made in all sons of peculiar ways. pv THE WAY, nobody has asked inn recently a b u u l Ihc s t a t u s of my t e a m -- I h e Kiwanis Si mis -- probably because nobody likes to hear depressing stories. Well, Ihc Studs arc in as bad a way as ever. They're in the cellar of t h e i r league --and 1 mean the sub-base- m e n t . Twelve games or so behind the next team up. They're still i n s p i r i n g the best in every o u t f i t they meet. Low-average members of opposing teams go wild when they play Ihc Studs. They whoop and holler w i t h glee while throwing strikes l i k e mad. There's no hope for Ihe Studs. In baseball, cellar teams sometimes get a kick out of operating as "spoilers," k n o c k i n g off Ihc big hoys now and t h r u .
