Phone 2071 NEW YORK (AP>—Tlie kids have had Halloween too long. It Is time for .the grownups to take it over for themselves. Halloween gives i chance to let off iteam. And In the tension-tilted world of today who needs a holiday from reality mosv—adults or children? Why, adults, ot course. They should have a Halloween, too, a day on which every worm In the land could turn and lash out in petty revenge against the small fractions and daily responsibilities of life. It might help us all if we had a national ."Hotfoot Day" in home, community and office. Have the neighbor's kids — the neighbor who always borrows things from you—been soaping your windows on recent Hallcnveens? Well, go over to his house, borrow a cake of soap from him. »nd soap his new picture window with signs saying, "Stop, thief J" or "I never yet bought anything T could borrow." Does 1'our Wife Y'elp? Is your wife always yelping you never bring her flowers anymore? Send her a dozen roses—doused with red pepper. Does your husband always insist on reading the morning newspaper at breakfast? Get up early, turn the pages Inside out, glue them all together—then hand him his paper. 'How about that bus driver who always greets you with a surly snarl? Surprise him by squirting him in the eye with a water gun. Joy will spread throughout the veil iele. And the bus driver himself? He can hand out change in pennies to nil the passengers who Insist on handing him a dollar bill every day to pay their fare. Office Can Be Hilarious But it is In the office where adults can enjoy most hilarious Haloween. Imagine the Insulting slogans you can chalk up on the men's room mirror! Or how you can festoon it with paper towels-it there should happen to be any. Does the boss go for cigars? Light him up an exploding cigar. And when it blows up and Ills jaws drop open, say, "Gee; I made a mistake.' Then pop another cigar in his mouth — another exploding one. When that goes off, well—you know row much people enjoy the same prank twice. And the boss himself could enjoy a real "get-even" day, going from desk to desk, telling the hired hands, 'never mind the Labor Relations Board today, muscle head. I'm going lo tell you a few things I think," Oh, what fun you could have, too, pouring library paste in the hair of ;he snooty stenographer, or throwing spitballs at the foremen and the elevator operators. How About the Waiter? At lunch when tile waiter who always kept you waiting finally showed up, you could whip a sandwich out ol your pocket and say, "Just aring me the Worcestershire sauce today, jloH'foot." After finishing the sandwich, you could doodle on the tablecloth with Indelible ink.- On the way home you could stop at the butcher's and . . . but, no, every man has his own daydream of n D«oHi' F«t« of Giri M Trunk LOS AWGBLEB, <M. so. «V-A "nightmare death" by tuMoMtto* in a locked trunk was suggested today by officials studying lot An- S«tes' latest murder mystery.

Just a day to get all their litle frustrations out ot their system In a grand binge of irresponsibility. Only one thing about it. After x Halloween like that you'd hav« to follow it up the next morning with a "national forgiveness day." Otherwise the world would be in even greater chaos than it IE now.
