Read Courier New'. c Classified Ads Boys are the nicest thing that ever happened to me — these arrogant, self-assured, cocky little men children who assume that all the great big world revolves around them. Who else can carry half a worm, one crushed daisy, a piece of scrap metal, a three day old apple core, and two cents all in one pocket? Who else can take a bath without getting their shoulders wet, and wash for dinner without turning on the tap? Who else can believe that right is right and wrong is wrong, and tht good guy always wins in the end? Who else can be a fireman, swordfighter, cowboy, deep-sea diver, all in the space of one hour—and then solemnly hold a funeral, complete with scros and box, for a shell off a turtle lost a month ago? Who else can be cuter without teeth, meaner without malice, kinder without embarrassment, sillier without foolishness, and cleaner without neatness? The world gains much in leaders and man power when boys grow up — but it loses something too — that magic feeling that comes with being Me — I like boys. They smile when I need a smile; they tease when I'm ten. The feel of dust between bare toes and the abiliy to lie quiely while time stands still, to watch a minnow in a brook. sober; they keep me from taking myself too seriously. No, I don't wish 1 were ten again. I just hope that somehow God will see to it that I alwayi have someone ten years old in or near my house and heart. Boys arc the nicest thing that ever happened to me. Blytheville Water Go. "Water Is Your Cheapest Commodity" Cinemascope at Its Best With Stereophonic Sound!
