THE PHAKOS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPOBT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA VOWS FOLKS Fun of All Kinds $ Puzzles-—Storii Things to Do—Pan Pole* —How the Lazy Were Punished "JO H ANN, HANS! Come here!" It was the voice of a German mother years ago in the city of Nuernberg. "Your father told you to clear the weeds from the garden," she said. "They are still there. Why have they not been cleared?" "It was hot, mother, and we laid down under a tree and then forgot about it," said Jonann. As they talked together there was the sound of a tinkling bell in the distance, but coming eloser. "Come, boys," said their mother, "come. I want you to see another boy, now grown to manhood, who was lazy like you have been this afternoon. I want you to see what has happened to him." They hurried to the street »nd there they saw young Franz Hoffman pushing a wheelbarrow to which he was chained. Over his head hung the bell they had heard, fastened by a frame to his waist. The streets were crowded with people to 'see his disgrace, his punishment for laziness. "Strafe der Zwanparbeit" It was called — punishment by forced labor. Johann and Hans watched for a moment—it was not a happy sight to them—and then they dashed back to the garden. When their mother looked again, she saw them busily pulling the weeds. In the museum at Nuernberg one 'can still see the wheelbarrow and bell used so long ago for the punishment of lazy boys. Who knows but what we can trace to its use the faithful industry of the boys who grew up in Germany in those early. days? "Com«, boys," said their what has happened to lazy mother. "I want you to tee Frani Hoffman." —The Town That Moved a Mile BRICK BY BRICK and board by board, artisans of the Smithsonian Institution recently move a 300-year-old farmhouse from Marlborough, Mass., to Washington, D.C. One of the few surviving authentic homes of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, It was re-erected in a wing of the museum as a permanent exhibit oi life in early America. Moving a house is' a fairly routine matter these days. But moving a whole town? That is something else again. Yet, it has happened. The town of Hibbing, Minn., was born when iron ore was discovered in the area. A boom town, in the 1890's, Hibbing was much like the gold camps of the old west—loud, brawling •nd mushrooming. Though the flrst settlers didn't know it, Hibbing sat •mack-dab on top of one of the Hibblnr, Minn.— a town on the move, literally. richest deposits of iron ort fa the area. At sorn« of tht newer housts were built, the excavations for cellars turned up almost pure iron ore. Then about 1915, a boarding house began to sag at one end. The ground beneath was giving way. The building was slowly sliding into one of the big mine pits which encroached to the very edge of town. Suddenly, one night, it collapsed with a mighty roar into a heap of twisted beams. Other nearby houses began to sag. Wide cracks appeared in the streets. It was soon evident that the town was gradually being swallowed up by the pits. So an unusual decision was made. The entire town had to move! Every house, store and building was to be uprooted from its original site and moved to a new townsite about one mile away. The entire town of fifteen thousand population was soon on the move. The incredible sight of homes and churches, hotels and shops hitting the road was a spectacle not even witnessed in Hollywood's liveliest nightmares. Buildings were set on rollers and pulled by horses or engines to their new location and set 'up again on foundations prepared in advance. Many homes were hauled while men continued to sleep in their beds or women cooked meals on jiggling stoves. The climax came with the moving of the leading hotel. It stalled on a grade and the resulting tug-of-war came to an abrupt end when, with a great groan, the Jour-floor edifice collapsed, a complete wreck. But if the sprawling hotel had refused to be moved—the rest of Hibbing didn't. It stands today on its new site, the town that moved a mild Start Your Sewing With Graceful Skirt of Denim BUtl —America Has New Pet: Mr. Parakeet TEN YEARS AGO, the parakeet was almost unknown in U. S. homes. Today boys and girls (and men and women), treasure no less than 14 million of these little pets from Australia. Why has America gone "all-out" for the parakeet? For one reason, he is a colorful feathered clown, with a flair lor mimicry. Parakeets really talk—not just single words, but long sentences. They have an uncanny memory. Apparently there is no end to what they can say. A parakeet In Miami Beach has a fabulous vocabulary of 400 words, which includes both English and Yiddish phrases. Complicated chemical formulas and a condensed version of Einstein's theory of relativity are included in the repertoire of a Dayton, Ohio, bird. A parakeet owner in San Francisco claims that his pet has a 500-word vocabulary, including the Lord's Prayer, the pledge of allegiancd to the flag, and several nursery rhymes. A midwest bird lover josh- ingly suggests that, you' get a parakeet and teach it to talk. If ever you tire o:t it, all you need do is teach it to say, "Here, Kitty; Kitty!" Actually it is quite easy to teach a parakeet 1o talk. The earlier you start training, the easier it will be. All it takes is patience. One in every fifth home in the U. S. today has a parakeet. Even the White House has one. A Chicago bird is listed in the telephone book and has his own private line. Chicago also boasts a school for parakeets, and New York City has a hotel for them. Parakeets art lovable, and like to be the center of attraction. Give them a few simple toys, and they will develop many tricks of their own. Parakeets wer« first introduced in Europe over a century ago, when the noted English ornithologist, John Gould, brought back a pair after a visit to their original horn* in the grasslands of Australia. . Even sailors love them. Recently, when an inspection was made aboard a large aircraft carrier, it was found that the ship carried ten times as many parakeets as planes—a total of 475 birds. —By Grover Brlnkman TODAY'S MODERN LIVING calls lor comfortable, easy-to- get-into clothing.
