(2). The keep-lit host — every descend upon them from the cily in quest of tax-free entertainment. They often speak of these visitors as if they were a ravenous locust plngue. The average \vcck end guest is pictured as a man who .... (A) Leaves his footprints on the bathtub and walls; (B) Tries to kiss the host's wife behind his hack; . <C> Keeps trampling on his host's children, find not always accidentally; <D> Laps up Hie host's entire monthly liquor supply, tlien makes morning before dau'n he into your room saying, "if we will hurry we can get in five sets of tennis before noon. That'll leave us ptenly of time to play softbalt with the kids, mid then we can go horseback riding." What does he care if you drop dead? (3). The ain't nature pranrl host—this husky boy has lo have every meal outdoors. The mosquitoes eat you as yon try to eat babecued hotdoff that looks like a bui'ned clothes pin. The salad he long distance calls to friends in London and Paris, leaving the charges for !:is ho". f .o " n ". Story Seems One-SliIrd But it always lino scomcil lo me this is n one-sided story. All rural hosts agree there Is no sirch ihliif* as a perfect week end guest. Onlpomed a gallon of Bin the other hand, it Isn't exactly easy swimming pool, because made with Seltucc from his own garden alf=o turns out to have a l few sprigs of poison ivy hi It. Eternal Hot He Produced <'!>. The overflowing bottle -: he shows up nt the station with WILSON NEWS By Mra. B. f. Boyle* eyes. You just know he has Into his he can't Attend Reunion The Rev. and Mrs 13. B. nledsoc and children left. Kriday for Little Rock where they attended the eighth annual reunion of his family. The nine children. 21 grandchildren and two great-grand children of Mr. and Mrs. J. n. Bkd- soe were present. Major W. W.

Sunday School rlass Meeti The Philalhra Sunday School Class of the First Baptist Church met Tuesday night in the Merroll Room al Wilson Tavern lor Its monthly social and business meeting. After a short business session the group played games. The class presented their tt-achor, Miss Norma Anderson, with a fitted case as a "oing away gift.

Hostesses were Mrs. O. B. Craven. Mrs. A. F.. Clnrk. and Mrs. Wendell Harris. Others present were Mrs. Ciene Smith. Mrs. Rllhen to find a perfect week end host. It might be a Rood idp.i If lons- suffcrinf week end guests banded together and got some Duncan Hlnes or Emily Post to protect them. Why not put up signs before all country homes rating the owners? For example: "Host strongly recommended but wife Is terrible gossip"; "Food okay, but host Is a terrible bore"; "Guest beware— brine yur own sandwiches." Or even: "Run for your life." It Takes Trial And Guests who are Invited to spend a "quiet restful week end nwny from It all" must learn by trial and error now that a host in the suburbs Isn't always the same fellow he seemed in the city. Here are a few standard types, Recognizable to all veteran guests: even take a dip into the water unless It has n Martini flavor. (5>. The make-a-profit host — the first thint? he does is .set up a card table, and he and his wife piny bridge together like Hoyle and Mrs. Hoyle, If they don't win off you enough to buy a sailboat, their week end is ruined, and you are a bum. There is still another type of host, the kind that guests dream about but never meet. He Is liie perfect host. When you arrive, he hands you the keys to his house and car. Then he packs up his wife and kids, calls p laxi. drives away — and doesn't come hack until Tuesday, by which Ihno you naturally have gone, refreshed, rested, and Ward, Mrs. Jim Paul Bussey and happy alone. after a wonderful weekend Hoffman Soys Taft /s Trying To Steamroller GOP Convention NEW YORK Ifl — One of the l> advisers in Gen.
