SPECIAL JULY 4 COLEY STOITZ And His Band Dancing-9'till Make Reservations at the Club E. B. Chitwood You know how I feel about -women's liats ! • I'm draped on number 3 stool at Doc Carrol's drugstore, sipping a milk shake and minding my own business, when this cloud of feathers blows out of the revolving door. Now feathers in n milk shake I don't like. So I stop the door with a number 12 oxford, and out fall these two strange birds and a strong-voiced chick. They're all .shouting at once, so I set them up to sodas and give an car. ' " "It's women's hats," .says the one with tlic king-size lower lip. "These birds don't know that the size of the bill tells whether a bat's a bargain or not.", " '"""" "That chin-borne fish bowl of his has warped his mind," breaks in the ostrich. "I judge a bargain by how far down the price has gone." And he swallows to emphasize his point. > *•»«« •.'"You boys are out of your depth," cackles din chick. "Any woman knows a bargain is what you get for what you pay. Am I right, Charlie?" "On women's hats, no comment," 1 replica, sidestepping. "But you're all three right if you think of the bargain everybody gets in electric service. "When the movies were still silent, you got only about half as much electricity for your money as you get today - so your bill says BARGAIN every month. '" _./ "But Ossie's right, too. While the price of most everything else has gone up, the price of electricity has come down. ) "And another angle-score this one for the "chick. What you get today is the most and the best electric service in this peace-torn world. And for that you can thank the business sense and the common sense of the people who built and manage the electric companies." ^" " ' ' "Egg-zaclly!" chirps the chick, who naturally has to have the last word. : ' " listen lo ttit Summer Eltcltlc Hour »Mp Woorf/ Herman end ftgff « end Dave Barbour'i Oichetfra.
