Grandpappy may not have had benefits of radio, TV, and outdoor signboards. But he knew the value of keeping his product name before the public. Famous Fables By K. K. Kdgar SILENCER: Even as a youngster, composer Frederick Delius required absolute quiet when he was at his musical studies. Once, when he was practicing at the piano, the neighbor's ducks began to quack, making it impossible for the young musician to concentrate. He closed the windows, covered his ears, to no avail. Finally, unable to endure it any longer, he decided on more direct action. He took a decanter of his father's whiskey, carried it over to the neighbor's yard and emptied the contents into the birds' mash. Pretty soon, the quacking diminished, then it ceased altogether, and young Delius was able to practice without distraction for the remainder of the afternoon. * * * LAST MILE: The New York Yankees were playing Cleveland in a close contest. Late in the game, the Indians filled the bases with no one out, and the top of the batting order on deck. Joe McCarthy, the Yankees manager, called in pitcher Lefty Gomez from the bullpen, and met him as he came to the mound. "How do you feel?" asked McCarthy. "Like goin' to a movie," was Gomez' candid reply. shop mondays and fridays 10 to ?; other weekdays 10 to 5 . .4 phone 346-0981 Long Sleeve Shirt Dress For Fall 19.90 Get ready for cool weather with this long sleeve shirt dress from our collection for fall.
