IS July 20, 1948 City Globe-GMette, Maioa City, la. A LINEO'PIPE Stick to the Pipe—Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will VACATION Hurrah, hurrah, vacation days, Now come again our hopes to raise, For 2 glad weeks when we may fare, Away from worry, free from care. . iWe'll sleep on hard and bumpy beds, And rain may fall upon our heads, [We'll much dislike the food we eat, And maybe suffer from the heat, And get by insects badly bit, As here and there they gaily flit. And every time a move we make, More money it will always take, And as our dreams go up in smoke, . We'll come home hungry, tired, and broke. Hurrah, hurrah, vacation days, Now come again our hopes to raise, For two glad weeks when we may fare, Away from worry, free from care. v Which about the best that can be said for the average vacation is that it brings a change from one's usual daily doings. And usually the best part of a vacation is the planning of it. Not but what almost any vacation is well worth the while. And some of them are long remembered for the good time they brought. Yet after all, its a grand and glorious feeling to set back home once more and stretch out in the old bed and get a real night's rest. SIMILE: AS WELCOME AS A SHOWER DURING A HOT, DRY SPELL. For the benefit of those who depend on this column for their astronomical information we would say that there is a meteoric shower due to come off July 28 to 30 and another August 11. The first mentioned shooting stars leave a long slow streak, while the second display is mostly short swift streaks. It do seem that man can't fool Tpith nature too much and get any where. A recent news item states that it is now thought that the jutly famous DDT solution is knocking off the fish faster than a flock of enthusiastic fishermen QDidd possible catch them. ^ ^^^^ ^f Which knocking off the mosquitoes may add much to the pleasure of fishing. But if there be no fish to fish for, why go fishing at all. And we do hope the said DDT doesn't eliminate the ladybugs. If it •do it will be plenty bad for crop raisers. The ladybug being, by the way, the most valuable bug in the world. ^ ^f MOSQUITOES WHEN, THEY DO NOT BITE, TO FISHERMEN, BRING MUCH DELIGHT. BUT WHEN ./THE FISH, REFUSE TO BITE, IT DOESN'T BRING, SO MUCH DELIGHT. Speaking of tall corn as is nearly every one in northern loway, good old loway, these days, we heard a rather touching story of what it did to one farmer. He was out in the corn field plowing corn when his favorite uncle who he hadn't seen for 23 years called at the house to see him. As the uncle could not stay a couple of hours the entire family, including the dog went to the corn field to tell the farmer to come to the house. _A__ ^^^^ ^f «, However the corn was so high it completely obscurred the tractor and the farmer, and although they searched for him for two hours or more they never did find him and the poor man didn't get to see his favorite uncle after all. This loway corn sure do crow tall this year. __ A__ ^^^^ ^^ There's many a slip "Local team to go after 10th straight" — One day's headlines. "Spencer Cardinals . beat Le- _ionnaire team 29-0"—Next days leadlines. —• — Which it was the first ball game we have been able to get out to this year. And we never had more fun at a game. But lets not play Spencer no more. __•— ^^_— ^jp And to the many who have asked us in a peering tone of voice how come did we leave the lights on on the Buix the night of the game, we would reply by saying we did it so we could find the car when the game was over. How else could one locate it after dark amid so many other cars.^ •IM«. ^f — Anyhow, there is one high cost of living that has not arisen on its hind legs and reached for the sun. One can, if one so desires, still get drunk and thrown in the clink for the same of §10 and costs. ACCEPTS POSITION West Union—Mr. and Mrs. Otto Schuchmann have received word that their son, Alvin, who has been working for American Airlines at Chicago, 111., has accepted a civil service position with the Civil Aeronautics Authority.
