V4 THE OTTAWA HERALD •* Wednesday, Feb. 27, 1963 DidYouEver I*ear The One AboutThe... G. Robert Gadberry provided a lot of laughs in his serious speech at Monday night's C of C dinner. Have you heard these? On Women — They come in four sizes: thin, medium, plump and "Get a load of that!" The only man who really understood women died laughing before he could tell anyone. Science student upon seeing a pretty girl on campus after a lecture in which the professor noted that 94 per cent of the human body is water: "She's really doing all right with her 6 per cent." On religion — Two ministers appeared at the Gate before St. Peter, thinking they were in line for special consideration. But a couple of Internal Revenue agents received priority, because "They scared more hell out of some people in one year than the preachers did in 40." The minister at one church began a drive to collect clothes for a needy family in the congregation. The clothes were presented, and the family didn't return to the church. After several Sundays, the minister called on the family to inquire if something was wrong. "Oh no," the woman said. "We put on the new clothes, and we looked nice, well, we've been going to the Episcopal Church." On drunks — One was driving the wrong way on a one-way street. A policeman asked him if he didn't see the arrows. "Ar rows," said the drunk, "I haven't even seen any Indians!" A loaded fellow was taken to police headquarters and asked why. "For drinking," he was told. "Then lesht get started," he said. A man who drank a lot and often was asked if he didn't drink a lot. "No," he said, "I spill most of it." On little boys — One said he had seen a bear in the yard and his mother, who found out the "bear" was so-and so's dog, ordered him to go upstairs and ask God's forgiveness for lying. When the boy came down, his mother asked if he had done so. The boy said "yes" and that God had said it was all right because the first time He had Seen so- and-so's dog He, too, thought it was a bear. On C of C people identified as the "upper crust" — The upper crust is a few crumbs held together by a lot of dough. General — "We built a new home on the outskirts of our in come." Members of a church were dis cussing the proposed purchase ol a chandelier. One said he opposed it because: For one thing we cannot spell the word and so cannot order it. For another there's no one in our church who can play one of those things Finally, what we really need is a new light.

On hand was a veteran AP correspondent who is now chief editor of The Associated Press' German language services in Europe. This is his story. By RUDOLF E. JOSTEN BERLIN (AP)—It was a fantastic sight. The huge glass dome of the Reichstag building was aglow. * •' There was a sudden explosion and the glass cupola burst into ragments. Flames shot into the wintry sky. Sixty fire engines raced to the blaze. Hundreds of police and brown-shirted Nazi storm troopers encircled the area. The time: about 10 p.m.—Feb. 27, 1933. History books mark this as the ncident the Nazis used to unleash their reign of terror that led final- y to millions of dead in World War H. Since that date, no German Parliament has sat in the Reichstag building. The Nazis used another building. War wrought further damage. The old Reichstag has become a iymbol of the cold war which divides Germany, prevents the formation of an all-German Parliament and keeps Berlin from regaining its status as capital of [Jermany. Today, the Reichstag stands within yards of the Berlin wall built by the Communists who now occupy half the old capital and half of Germany. That- night the storm troopers refused to let me through although I showed my press pass. "I'm sure they set fire to it themselves," said a voice behind me as tens of thousands gathered to watch the blaze. Black limousines drove up. I saw Adolf Hitler, propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels and Hermann Goering. Four weeks earlier Hitler had been appointed chancellor by the aging Reichspresident, Field Marshal Paul von Beneckendorf und Hindenburg. The Nazis were not yet firmly Additional Sports Postpone Title Fight MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP)—After several days of sparring between promoters, managers, advisers, press agents—and incidentally Sonny Ldston — the heavyweight championship fight between Listen and Floyd Patterson has been put off until April 10. Before anyone suggested publicly the wrangling over a postponement might be a gambit In attract national publicity, Listen's adviser, Jack Nilon, announced Tuesday that "he pulled a muscle and we've got X-rays to prove it." Liston, who has not made a public statement since the fight over the fight began, said through a spokesman that he would resume training today, six days after reportedly injuring his knee while swinging a golf club. "No matter what anyone says, we wanted this fight on the fourlh (of April) as originally scheduled," Nilon insisted.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Mickey Mantle probably will join Willie Mays in the $100,000 salary class today. The American League's Most Valuable Player is expected to sign his new contract as the New York Yankees officially open their spring training workouts. Mantle, who checked into camp Tuesday a day ahead of schedule, received about $85,000 last season. If Mantle gets the contract he wants, he will move into select company. Only Joe DiMaggio, Sign Musial and Ted Williams reached the $100,000 class or more in previous years. Mays, the San Francisco Giants' star, attained the ranks of the elite last Wednesday. Roger Maris, the junior member of the M & M firm, is due in camp today. He also is expected to sign within a day or so. Maris reportedly has been asked to take an $8,000 cut to around $60,000. NIT 10 teams. Named previously were Miami, Fla., Providence, Canisius, Memphis State, Mar quette, Detroit, Notre Dame anc Louisville. established. In the elections in November 1932, they had lost two million votes. Their seats ^in the leichstag had been cut from 230 o 196; the Communists' were the riggest gainers. With the next general election ust one week away, the fire could tot have been timed better for the Vazis. Hittler called it the signal or a nationwide Red uprising, lundreds of Communists were hrown into jail, many beaten to leath or shot. Marinus van der Lubbe, a 24- fear-old Dutch worker and inde- undent Communist, was arrested nside the burning •Reichstag. He old police he had no helpers in etting the fire. Within days, Ernst 'orgler, parliamentary leader of he Communist party, and three Bulgarian Communists were ar- ested and charged with plotting lie fire. Van der Lubbe was sentencd to leath by guillotining. Torgler and the three Bulgarians were acquit- ed for lack of evidence — courts lad not yet been completely Nazi- ied. Ex-Col. Gen. Franz Haider, former German army chief of staff, said after the war he heard Goer- ng boast of having laid the fire.

Main CH 2-1196 Three years ago, Fritz Tobias, a German amateur historian who interrogated all survivors, theorized in a widely discussed book that Van der Lubbe acted alone and was a latter-day Guy Fawkes who wanted to alert the world to the Nazi danger. While the Nazis blamed Communists for the fire, most historians believe the Nazis started it. I am convinced the fire was laid by the Nazis. One week after the fire, the Nazis polled 52 per cent of the popular vote in a general election. The Nazis were on their way to their "1,000-year Reich" which collapsed in the ruins of war in a little more than a decade.
