" Did You to Bump of Curiosity By ROLAND J. SCOTT Modesty said the philosopher, is the least of the virtues and a confession ' of the deficiency it .indicates.^ Bear, that statement in mind.. 1 as you read this that I am writing, lest, you'get'.the idea that I'm full of myself. And if the idea still per- . sists in spite of. this warning merely say to yoiiself--"the poor, man-is only trying to be accurate." To get'the preliminaries over I am the creator of the "Did You Know", cartoon appearing daily .in ttie Globe-Gazette. The ideas have . been fathered by me in the course : of 26 years of newspaper work in nearly all sections of the United States. They haven't come easily. . Here and there I've picked up strange facts and-sometimes it has. taken years' to Verify them) You'see I was bom with a decided curiosity bump. In fact it'.was so ; large that shortly after-my arrival^.;, in this world three doctors were called in consultation. Two of them shook their' heads; "He'll never amount, to anything," they' s"aid. "You're all wrong," I protested, leaping from my ..crib, and the third doctor sided with me, declaring the bump to be a mark of genuis. Between the two of us we ejected the dissenters from the room; I had the .strength of a Hercujes in those days. , .-· , I've-gone thru life remembering- the -words of that" doctor, nursing along that bump of cur- iosity, and nightly .anointing it with good'old crude oil. ... . . . . · ' '; . i.was born in Indianapolis, so I'm told/ and "shortly thereafter began making a name for myself in the newspaper business. That bump of cutiosity h"as'remained with me to this day. 'Newspaper illustrating, cartoons, caricatures have kept the wolf from the door, but. thru all these years I've had this one idea in my mind--i-that I might some day make use of that bump. I went on gathering material, collecting evidence. You can judge the result. ,.
