• FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS • HalBojle Rover Boy Keeps New Year's Resolution Ten Years Afterward BY HAL, BOYLE NEW YORK. (AP).—What do you do with your old New Year's resolutions ?| For years I used to write mine down tlie first of each January— and manage conveniently to lose them by the first of February. The natural result was:,out of sight, out of mind. * • • THIS SPRING, HOWEVER, f WHILE CLEANING out my dress drawers I found a wrinkled, yellowing sheet of paper. It was my New Year's resolutions for 1940, and the last paragraph read: ". . . And I promise to get my stripped weight down to 170 pounds, and be more obedient to my wife." Frances, readmg over my shoulder, said comfortably: "Well, Rover, you and Joe Stalin certainly keep your promises, fil don't you?" I weighed on a drug score scales that day and got back a card that said "206." Allowing about six pounds for clothes, I was an over- plump 200-30 pounds higher than my target of 12 years ago. Well, I decided right then to do something about it. And—as the sports writers say—the rest is history. A stringent diet of things like poached eggs, ground beef, and salads made of several varieties of wide-bladed grass has put me right back to where I wanted to be in 1940. THE SAME DRUG STORE SCALES today told me I had hit the 170-pound level and added: "you have a judicial mind." I admire that little old weighing machine. Sometimes it is pounds foolish, but it is always penny- wise. It never says an unkind thing to anybody. One day I put a cent into it and it failed to work. I shook it angrily and slapped it in its glass face, and out tumbled a card that .said: "You always keep your emotions under ^control and get full value for every cent you spend." How do you like that for a machine turning its other cheek? Why can't we all be as kind as weighing machines? OOP MATES MEET—GOP Presidential candidate Dwight, D.

(AP).—What's it like to be married to Errol Flynn? PATRICE WYMOBE the third Mrs. Flynn, says that sne and her adventurous husband get along just dandy. This, despite the almost continuous sniping of the gossipers who have tried to toll a knell for the latest Flynn marriage ever since it began almost two years ago. "That's right," panted Patrice between strenuous dance re hears- als for "She's Back on Broadway." "It'll be two years next month. I guess a lot of people didn't think it would last that long. "But we get along fine. We have a lot of laughs when we're together. And we're together a lot more than people think. Although we've both done a lot of traveling, we've never been apart more than a week or so. At least we weren't until the picture that Errol's making in England, 'The Sea Rogue.' We'll be separated four months this time, and that's toug|i to take. But I'll be seeing him .soon, either in England or at our other home in Jamaica." THE KANSAS - BORIV REDHEAD seems a good match for Flynn. She also is an active individual and appears to have a wanderlust. "In another year or so, I hope we can coordinate our travels," she remarked. "By that time, I should be able to work it so I only have to work half a year, and so will Erirol. Then we'd like to spend six months in Jamaica and six months here. "Whatever happens, I want to keep working. I'm a dancer, and I can't stand to be idle for long. After a few weeks of doing nothing I feel the need to get m/ body in shape again." MAURICE E.
