It takes a brave person to choose the unexplored. Just imagine the surprise the fellow got who ate the first oyster. Raw one, that is. . The same people who can deny others everything are world famous for denying themselves nothing. Shame is an ornament to the young; a disgrace .to the old. It was old Davy Crockett who said, "Be sure you are right, then go ahead" and for that saying, he wound up number one on the Hit Parade.

It's only a superstition If that's the rl«ht word for it. I'm not a very good source on this quaint custom, but hearing It as a child, I learned that rabbits lay eggs on Easter Eve after the fairies have kissed all the little children in the land good night. The Easter rabbit Is strictly of Teutonic origin .ind I presume back in the early days, a lot of Swedish mothers or Danish mothers started the idea because rabbits were more plentiful In their part of the country than any other animal. Out of the many stories that were connected with rabbits and Easter eggs, children In all parts of the world began to believe In it just as they are prone to believe in anything that sounds festive or fantastic. I know this Isn't much help for Mrs. Wilson, but maybe someone wlil read this who is an authority on customs of our land and will drop me a line. I love quaint customs and especially if they come out of never- never land, such as the Easter rabbit. Have you noticed how the critics are beginning to nint that George Goble's style of numor is getting monotonous? I told you so!
