WILLIAMS & RICHARDSON 315 S. 10th Le(and Ellioff, Royal Sfory, Emil Hoffman, Salesmen 242-0251 242-0252 John W. Allen Southern Illinois University Artists, poets, crop farmers bundled up children with mitts and sleds, youth in general and older persons still youthful in heart, along with country boys wanting to hunt rabbits, all seem to have an inborn love of snow. It is true the slippci-y walks and roadways that too soon become sodden dampen the enthusiasm of city dweller:s. To all but the softies and infirm, however, the joy given by a rural landscape blanketed with snow Is worth all the sluch and musii that follows. This writer would feel well rewarded in advance lor a chance offered to play boy again and rabbit hunt along the leeward side of fence rows briar patches, bush clumps and Woodlands with Fritz and an ancient fowling piece. Even junk yards m'apped in a generous mantle of snow have their attractive aspects. Weed fields, brushlands, hillsides, and piled up rocks take on a measure of beauty. By now you have guessed that one person loves snow. Snow also prompts one to get a bag of feed and an-nnge facilities for feeding brids. No one | can feel less than pleased as ho watches and listens to the birds that come to twitter their thanks and peck at the feast offered. This costs little. Besides all these there is a body of folklore than centers about .snow. A good hundred sucli .sayings have been gathered. These have been passed along through the years and may be of interest. Some apparently are true but hardly believable. For Instance, the statement ihat snowflakes like fingerprints never are alike. Just how one can prove that true or unture is not 50 million french fries can't be wrong. All those empty french fry bags prove it.

A careful inspection of a few hundred or more photographed on a black background didn't turn up a single set of identical twins. Thus we concede the truth of the saying. There is a mass of lore to lell us just when and how often it will snow. Some light flurries of snow here on November 1 and 2, with heavy falls in Tennessee and Kentucky, are convincing that the snow issue is definitely drawTi. It may be here early enough for some politicians to be very literally snowed under on election day. There are several sayings to tell us how many falls to expect. One is the old one that says it will snow as many times as there are foggy mornings in August. Another tells us that there will be as many as the moon was days old when tlie first snow came. Tlie August foggy morning could not allow more than 31, the moon day measure would allow only 28. A more generous one says count the days by which the first snow fall precedes Christmas and that's 'the number. With the first one com-! Ing on -N'ovenibor 1 tl :is year we are entitled to 51 for the winter, -0- -0- -0- There was one advantage in this year's firs snowfall. It was too scant to scoop up and eat. Since oldsters knew that the first .snowfall of the season contains all the poi.sons of the summer ils scantiness may have been good. Olhcr signs like October .'eaves continuing to cling on ILxs means more snows. Tliere undoubtedly are advantages to snowfalls. After the first fall, rabbits are good and boys may hunt them, that is if men haven't complicated the matter with game laws. With snows making the landscape look dreamy the snow en- snowy season It mans good luck. A dream anout snow at any time means that an Important event in one's life will Shortly come to pass. Another saying seems to offset both of these. It says tliat to dream of snow at any time is bad fortune. This apparent conflict may be avoided by not dreaming of snow at all. 1{ one believes the sayings there are several ways in which snow may help toward better health and comfort. Walking around the house barefoot when snow is on the ground wiU keep one's feet from' freezing, even from getting cold. It also will guarantee good helath throughout the year if one walks around the house three times, barefoot. A six-year-old tried this before announcing the experiment to his mother, who merely remarked, "John, that's fine but I wouldn't do it any more. You might step on a stob or nail." The experimenter doesn't reme ber the health thi'oughout that There are a number of signs particular year. There are a number of signs that tell when snows may be expected. Two rings about the moon indicate snow in 24 hours. A "spiltin" fire in the fireplace means fnow soon. A crackling fire that sounds like snow pellet.? falling agai .Mst a window or on the roof tells the listener that there will bo a snow of that kind soon. Itching of feet that once were frostbitten tell of a coming snow, likewise does smoke that spreads near the ground. Largo flakes tliat come from "tlio old woman in the sky who I is picking her geese or shaking her feather bed" means that the snow will not stay on long. With 110 more feather beds perhaps the figure is not so apt. -0- -0- -0- Snow lying long in fence corners, where shall we look for snow breeders? One saying that snow on a wedding day indicated that the couple would be happy and that his wife was offset by another that said snow falling on the carriage meant the couple would shortly part. Snow on the ground on C!hristmas Day means a good fruit crop. A white Christmas meant few deaths but a snow at Easter meant a "fat" graveyard. To keep hair from falling out one had only to wash the head in March snow water. March snow water also was good for the eyes and would wash freckles away. Hands would not chap if washed in It. Water from Ckx)d Friday's snow would wash away all headaches. In order to have good luck it might be just as well to forget the good ]u6k snow signs and carry a buckeye.

Hanoi Hannah Is Viet War's Tokyo Rose Bjr DORIS KLEIN HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Remember GI Jill, Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally of World War U days? Well, the Viet Nam war has a sweet-voiced broadcaster too, Hanoi Hannah. And to combat her, U.S. Armed Forces Radio is about to launch a blonde, green-eyed i weapon of its own. She's starlet Chi-is Noel, a mini-skirted 5-foot-6 and 115 pounds, with a slightly husky voice and a wide-eyed look that makes her girl next door one moment woman of the world the next. "It's going to be a gas," Chris told an interviewer. "I'm picking the records myself and. saying just whatever cornea into my head. "I've been talking to a lot of servicemen and they give me ideas about what tliey like to hear — but mostly, I think, it's just a feminine voice from home." Chris is nothing like the World War II radio sirens, says Navy Lt, Richard B. Howard of Armed Forces Radio. "Even Hanoi Hannah isn't the same. During World War n, you'd get Axis Sally and Tokyo Rose broadcasting to individual Gls. Tliey'd say, for instance, to a single soldier or a battalion, you're wife is cheating on you, or you're going to go into such an action at 0400 tomori-ow. It really shook up some of the guys. "But Hanoi Hannah just plays music the guys like to hear and throws in a little talk to make them homesick. We don't even know who she is — and she's not nearly as effective." Chris, a onetime baton twirling champion from Palm Beach, Fla., high school, has spent a lot of time lately touring hospitals, visiting wounded Gls from Viet Nam. "But what I really want to do is go over there," she said. "For now, I'll do the broadcasts from Hollywood and they'll fly the tapes to Viet Nam, then to Armed Forces Radio all over the world. "Would you believe It? Those guys sitting in rice paddies and cruising in the South China Sea — and I'll be able to talk to them all." Judge Refuses To Halt OIney Move For Recall OLNEY, HI. (AP)-A Circuit Court judge has ruled in favor of the petitioners in the Olney recall petition hearing. Judge Charles H. Jones told newsmen he based his decision Tuesday on the fact that cmly 23 signatures on a petition to recall Mayor Frank Bower were declared invalid, leaving enough names to warrant a recall election. The Judge said he will issue a decree shortly and enter it In the circuit clerk's office. Tha city may then appeal his decision within 30 days. City officials said today they wlU appeal to the 5th District Appellata Court in Mount Vernon. The 350-member Independent Citizens Committee of Olney fUed recall petitions Sept, 14 against Mayor Bower and tha four City Cijuncil members In a dispute over a proposed water Improvement bond issue.
