1 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON.' M-UNOIS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1952 • Hal Boyle The Poor Man's Philosopher Wakes Up With Tummy Ache BV HAL BOYLE HOMETOWN. U. S. A.—Twas the day after Thanksgiving and all through the house not a creature was stirring—not even the mouse named Wilbur Poeble. Well, just barely stirring. America's most average citizen was In a bad way. Wilbur had celebrated feeling grateful about so many things the day before that this morning he felt ungrateful about everything. * • * A SHARP PANG seared through his stomach. He grimaced, then opened his eyes cautiously. "You never get anything for nothing In this world," he said aloud. "Yesterday I never felt better, and today I never felt worse. And all I had in between was a little fun." His wife, Trellis Mae. sat up in her twin bed and looked over at him with hollow, accusing eyes. "Well, my fine-feathered philosopher," she said. "You kept me awake all night. And now you want to keep me awake all morning?" "How did I keep you awake all night?" demanded Wilbur. "With your snoring. At first I thought It must be the radiator knocking. I simply couldn't believe sounds like that could come out of a human." • * » "A GUESS I ATE TOO MUCH TURKEY," said Wilbur. "I'm a sick man.

They saw — for the first time since their convictions at the end of the war, Tokyo's colorful streets and a professional ballgame. They saw, too, families and friends who crowded near their section of the stands at Korakuen Stadium. Officially they were not permitted to talk to or have any contact with relatives. But their guards frequently were very busy watching the Daiei Stars beat the Tokyo Whales, 6-1. At one of those times a girl, 7 or 8 years old and clad in a red dress, accented by a pink hair ribbon, slid past guards and threw her arms around her father. He hungrily returned her em- rase before she was hustled away. The guards turned away as a flashbulb popped. Pictures had been forbidden. Newsmen were not allowed to approach the prisoners. The outing was arranged by the Justice Department and the baseball teams. FUNNY BUSINESS By Harihberger Wilbur, falling back on the bed. "ft's cheaper to die."
