At such times, we don't feel so much muffed as hurt — terribly, terribly hurt. Howard Houghton, editor and publisher of the Huntington find.) Herald - Press, has come forth with an editorial about poor old New York City and its ingrown talent for being sadly misunderstood. He starts off this way; "Doc Quigg, who writes for the newspapers, is trying to make the rest of the country feel sorry I'or New York. It doesn't seem to bother him that New York has been described as just a big hick Six Students of Illinois College Hurt in Accident LINCOLN, 111. (UP)-Six MacMurray College students, five town.

Hagerty told the big city reporters the President went out Sunday to look at four sides of beef. It went something like this: Q.—What's four sections of beef? Hagerty—Those are sections of beef that have been slaughtered and hung up for food. Q.—Four quarters? Hagerty—Quarters, sections — I don't know. I am a city boy. Q.—What did he do, take four and have them slaughtered? Q.—Four quarters then? That makes one. Hagerty—Half a steer — I don't know — maybe. Q.—Four sides? Hagerty—Sides, all right. Ists hanker for when they set out for Gotham. They drove as far as a motel on U.S. 22 in New Jersey, stayed the night, and took a bus next morning into New York. At the building where they boarded the bus, a sign said "Somerset Bus Terminal," and they took due note of that. They spent the day seeing the NKW York sights and at nightfall went to the ticket cage and asked lor two tickets to Somerset. "Yiss, what station?" the ticket nun replied. Told again, he said: "'Somerset is the bus line. What station do you want?" The visitor said, in that case — he didn't know. After some back and forth,, it dawned on the man from Indiana 'that he hot only didn't know where he came from, but he also didn't know where he'd left the family car and family luggage— except somewhere in the trackless wilds of Jersey. There ensued some frantic moments in which the couple were repulsed by the information desk and sundry scurrying New Yorkers in efforts to learn where they were from, Key Ends Panic After a period of panic, things turned out'' happily when the. viiii- tor found in his pocket the motel key with the town name on it. But does this accident of tourism from?" This incident may give you a small indication of what we have to put up with from the rest of the country. People come in here every day who not only don't know where they're from — they expect the bus drivers to smile, instead of snarling the way they do every day at.us New Yorkers. They expect taxi drivers to change the habit of a lifetime and refrain from hollering at them that they are stupid oafs. They are surprised when waiters are surly, salesgirls snooty, and a young man in a leather jacket takes' their money at switchblade point in Central Park. It's too much, really. We do, too, want to be loved. But we ain't gonna be sweet to nobody. The effort would kill us.
