SATURDAY, JULY 31,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN Five Berry's World W5 fcy NEA, Inc. "If I were the (.one Ranger, I'd shoot that transistor right out of your hand!" The WORRY CLINIC By OR. GEORGE W. CRANE Shcrrill's remarks would have been regarded as sacrilege back in the days of the Pilgrims. But Jesus undoubtedly smiled as .he heard them, for Christ has a keen sense of humor. We have proof of that in the Scriptures, as you will find him using hyperbole to make his audience smile. See below'. CASE W-460: Sherrill G., aged 5, was left in the church nursery while her parents in the sanctuary were listening to the clergyman's sermon. Sherrill had great admiration for Helen Clements, the friendly director of the nursery that Sunday. So Sherrill clung to Mrs Clements closely. Finally, Sherrill looked up at Mrs. Clements with her soulful eyes and asked: "Do you really like me?" and Mrs. Clements assured her that she did. nocently. asked, "Who's there?" "See," Sherrill triumphantly exclaimed, "you've for gotten me already!" This true case compares very favorably with the clever remarks of children which Art Linkletter has often presented. Fortunately, Mrs. Clements is a very gracious and experienced mother, so she realized that Sherrill had tricked her. An inexperienced spinster, out of contact with the r e cent "Knock, knock" fad in America, might have blinked her eyes in total incomprehension at Sherrill's final remark. But Mrs. Clements has a good sense of humor herself and thus laughed at how readily she had been "baited" into a verbal trap. You readers obviously will see that Sherrill must have co m e from a family of older brothers or sisters. For she "Would you forget me in a! originated would never that clever have verbal minute?" Sherrill then inquired. To which Mrs. Clements replied: "No, indeed, I wouldn't forget you in a minute." That comforted Sherrill for a moment; then she continued: "Would you forget me in a week?" "I should say not," vigorously protested Mrs. Clements. This seemed to please Sherril very much. Then as an after thought she askd: "But would you forget me in a whole year?" "Sherrill," Mrs. Clem e n t s solemnly vowed, "certainly I would never forget you even in a whole year." Sherrill's eyes sparkled h a p- pily- Then, without any further prelude, she gaily said: "Knock, knock!" To which Mrs. Clements in- Against Statement Made by Fulbright WASHINGTON (AP) The "trap" even with her very high I.Q. Instead, she had picked u p this "Knock, knock" trick from her home surroundings. But she deserves full credit, for she didn't make a faux pas, and with her soulful big eyes, she completely caught Mrs. Clements off guard. In pioneer days, such humor would have been regarded a s evil. But Jesus has a sense of humor, as proved by his clever use of hyperbole (extravagant exaggeration). For he taunted his audiences not by a minor or even a 100 per cent stretching of the truth, but he was so extravagant in his comparisons that he obtained a laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of what he said. "You strain at gnats," he might have stated, "but swallow mosquitoes." (A mere 100 per cent exaggeration that lacked humor). "You strain at gnats but swallow camels!" Jesus actually stated. Again, he remarked, "Why beholdest thou the mote (speck) in your brother's eye but c o n- siderest not the beam (two by State Department has put itself on record against a statement by Son. J. W.

Fullbright criticized the department in a Senate speech He said it had failed Tuesday to help Firestone resist pressures that Fulbright said ultimately forced abandonment of the project.
