6f B05 WELLS Our Literate Populace Mr. Bob Wells: I have occasionally enjoyed your articles -- the exception, Monday, April 1, about Lake Tahoe and the many signs that desecrate the view there. And the last bit about sign painters. I resent this remark because my husband's occupation is sign painting. Sign painters only do what the customer requires. Besides, if you didn't have signs. you wouldn't know whether to go in the "Ladies" or "Mens.". So don't knock this profession. It is quite an art and years of train- ; * * * ' " - - . funny thing happened to me on wife gave me i cordless hair drytr for Christmas. ing to be a good sign painter. Mrs. D. K. Kemer I don't knock sign painters who stick to *Ladits- and Men." It's t h o s e fancy educated ones who cse labels like " M e s s i e u r s " - a n d "MadamoiseRes." o r -AIaedchen"and*'Her- ren* that get me into embarrassing s i t u a - tions. And how do you expect a fella Eke me WELLS to choose between a door labeled "Romeos" and one labeled "Juliets"? Simple honesty forces me to seek other facilities down the street And soon, when they start teaching foreign languages at the elementary level, well have more educated sign painters than ever. · * * -- MY gripe is wires--the average living room today looks like the lethal chamber, whit with the extension cord for the lights, the extension cord for the telephone, the extension cord for the blaboffs on the TV, the extension cord for the coffee pot. Have come to believe it is a Machia- velian orthopedic plot . . . Couldn't some genius devise a plan to rid the perplexed - overburdened little woman from this miasma of wires? Pat GiDcey I don't know if it would work for you, but the cable situation has been much better at my house since my the way to the telephone yesterday . . . It was the third time it had rung in the last 10 minutes ... I decided not to answer it at all ... but the ringing became so urgent ... "Ma'm," said a pleasant male voice. "is your television set on? We're working on the telephone wires in your neighborhood and there seems to be some interference from your antenna. Which way is your set facing?"* Here were some men of science. "It's in the southwest comer facing northeast. 1 * I said. "Now if you will turn it about 45 degrees to the left" Th« adjustment was made and I returned to the phone. There were sounds of hammering and shouting in the background. "Is that OK. Joe? Ma'm. we hate to bother you like this but if you will just turn it a little more in the same direction." I rushed to do my duty. ^Ma'm. if you will just raise the set up about a foot I think we have it ___ You could use some books under it." I ran to the bookcase and measured out a foot of books and was staggering toward the set when my senses returned. I put them on the coffee table and returned to the phone. The line was dead. . . . _Had I really been talking to a mm of science? Mrs. Jack Highim How would I know? I can't tell the difference between and "MadamoiseHes."
