I don't know why, unless everybody who travels Is too busy and too worried to think of jokes. I)) perhaps 4000 mlle.s of travel through New Englajid and thus far into the midwest, I've encountered only one smoker joke-swapping session—up in Maine— and that was so mild and uninteresting that it died quickly of its' own Inanition. In the good old Cays the traveler used to come home not only with ft stock of new stores but also with a pretty good cross-section of what the country was thinking about.

They swnp Ideas about their different services, about types of aircraft anj the performances of various weapons, about Ihe'pecullarilles— good and bad—of commanding officers.

You might expect to hear much grouching about rationing, particularly about, gasoline rationing out here where distances begin lo grow expansive and where there has been a recent reduction In allowances. Perhaps such grumbling takes place, but I've listened for it and I haven't heard It even when — to see what would happen — I've sought, to provoke it. PAKMEKS AKE WOltltlKD The farmers arc worrying lest the lust of their experienced helpers be taken by the draft, and whether they can get help to meet peak labor needs, nut they tlon't raise the question.
