A LINE O'PIPE Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will i Pipe--Let Where It By T. PIPE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1943 WHY IS IT? Why is it when, One on a pleasant day, Goes for a walk, To pass the time away; Or maybe get Some needed exercise Or just to stroll, A bit 'neath sunny skies; Some one will stop A car the curb beside, And pleasantly, Will offer one a ride. But when the day Is heavy overcast, And icy winds, Do blow a bitter blast; Or when the rain In sheets comes pouring down; Or snow is deep On walks all over town; Nor could one get A taxi if one tried, No one e'er stops To offer one a ride. ' ·-- Which the gasoline rationing has sure done much to popularize taxicabs. One can hardly get the taxicab office on the phone, let alone get a cab on short notice. --·-- And here's a bouquet to Ihe laxicab drivers. No matter what the weather be, or the condition of the streets, or how far behind they are on their calls, they arc always pleasant and friendly. And they gel one where one wants to gei regardless of any adverse conditions that would try to keep them from so doing. --· -THE TAXI DRIV-, EHS GET YOU THERE, FROM WHERE YOU ARE, TO ANY WHERE. ^ To Unkle John Lepper: How come you. look so stern in your picture in the paper. Any time we have ever seen you you wore a large, up to date smile on your easy to look at face. And now with you looking through all them rose colored lights, you should be fairly beaming. Better have another picture tooken while wearing your friendly face so your friends who know you as you are will know whose picture they are looking at when it appears in public in a newspaper. ^-- A^^-Life is just one darn thing after another. Now the busy housewives have to do their own bread slicing. As if they did not have enough to do without having all that extra work put on them. LOCAL OPTION ISSUE UP AGAIN 2 Bills Offered Senate by 14 Lawmakers DBS MOINES, (jpj -- T h e local option question broke in the losva senate Friday. ¥ * * Two bills providing for local option in various political subdivisions of the state were introduced under the signatures of 14 lawmakers. The proposals were sponsored by Ihe Iowa anti-saloon league and the Women's Christian Temperance union. * * * One bill would provide local option on ail forms of beer sales and the other on sales of wine and hard liquor at state owned stores, the only legal dispensaries for the latter two beverages in the slate. If enacted, the bills would permit local option to be imposed throughout a county, township, or municipality and could be imposed on either beer or liquor store sales or both. In each bill the machinery for providing local option is the same. The question would have to be submitted to the voters o£ the county, township or municipality if, GO days before a general election, a petition for local option was presented with signatures equal in number to 25 per cent of the voters in the last general election in that sub-division · * * . * If the local option carried outstanding permits for the sale of beer would become invalid 90 days after the election and sale of hard liquor in state stores would end 90 days after the election. Any manufacturer of beer in a dry area would have to stop. * * * There were no explanations in the bills as to what would happen if a city, town or township would vote wet at the same election in which the county as a whole voted dry. The senators who introduced ihe bills are Ross D. Mowry (R., Newton), Oliver Turner (R., Lenox), Ralph E. Benson (R., Jefferson), R: E. Hess (R., Kingsley), Carl O. Sjulin (R., Hamburg) B C. WhitehiJl (R., Marshalltown), Ralph W. Zastrow (R., Charles City), Robert W. Harvey (R Missouri Valley), A. Miller (R., Gray) A. J. Shaw (R., Pocahontas), Har- Jan C. Foster (R., Mount Pleasant) Robert Keir (R., Spencer), Floyd Jones (R., Osceola) and c. V Findlay (R., Fort Dodge). Senator Benson's name is on the beer option bill but not on the wine and hard liquor measure.

A dignified statement of Ihe merits of the product advertised for instance. Far too many of them are delivered in a blustery, bulldozing sort of a manner ending with a command to go and buy one right now. And the most sickening thing on the radio i the dialog commercials. Wot a winter! Wot a winter! It sure has developed into something to remember and tell about when we get old. Not a thaw for over eight weeks.
