If AL IOYLI COLUMN- Every Boy Has Chance To Be President, But He Should Be Prepared «*W.Mo!n L* E ,W ?ORK (*>-Every American spojr ha, a chance to grow up to' be ^president of the U. 6. j^ And many a dating mother would I5"« to help her offspring get the fJ°Jf' I "But how?" she «sks herself, de- r»P«lringly. "How can I rear my gboy to be president?" | she knows how to train him lo jDecome a doctor or a mechanic. But {What every mother ought to know Mhe doesn't know-how to train him I" the white House. j And If she sets out unguided she |Can wasie a lot of time and effort, ;6hf might, for example, go to the ^trouble of getting him born in » i os tcabm. when this Is no longer poly necessary. As a matter of the average voter today h jjdownrkht suspicious of a candidate S»-ho was horn in a log cabin. He a "iks that is currying the whole ?1 " 1 -!iiK too far. „ What a iiiic mother can do, how- tever. is to try as much as possible ^to make Junior an alt-America boy jjwho appeals to all sections of the ^country, she might arrange to have I Smm born in the rural area of a bl" i .'nrm state such as Illinois, spend! |hls boyhood in California, and be»!n' E]his career in New York. J Educated in South He should be educated In the ush, say at the- University of grvorth Carolina, and then tnke a law ijdegree from Harvard University. Ms ^vacations should be spent working |»( different Jobs in different states j—on a ranch In Michigan, aboard a Ishrimp boat off Louisiana. j Early In life she should teach pumor how to lalk with his mouth (full of pebbles, how to fish, how to (play some musical Inslrument The ibest one is the tuba, aj every man jsecretly would like to be able to ,blow a tuba. Junior also ought to always have a dog as a pet. to show his love ol animals, and made lo marry a sjirl who likes cats. A wise mother will s<?e that Junior does fairly well in school, but not too well. The voters are uneasy about a candidate who is top intelligent, and contemptuous of one who is too dumb. The careful mother will also be •ware of "The Doctrine of Prophet-i» Ic Remarks." This li the theory that all presidents, even «s boys, foresaw the gr»ve problems of the future. Where te PirlcT As fhe biggest problem likely to face most Americans in the next generation Is where to park their motor car. the thoughtful mother could well have Junior as a lisping lad of fli-e, look at a traffic Jam and repeat after her: "Some day I am going to strike a real blow at all this." This will make a wonderful anecdote for his campaign biography. Now all the mother must do before launching Junior Into politics is to have him enlist for three years as an army private, then finance him in a small but successful business that makes a motiest profit and aives Us employes nine weeks vaaction a year and a bonus at Christmas. How can Junior escape the presidency now? Everybody will love him —f^hermen, farmers, laborers, can- italists. war veterans, cat fanciers ring collectors, hobbyists. Easterners Westerners, Northerners, Southerners. No. there is one thing more. Junior will have to learn how to cook. It's manly today. And no housewife is likelv to vote lo send a man to the White House that wouldn't know his way around the kitchen. READS OVER BOTH SHOULDERS-Eddy, In Frankfurt. Germany, has the answer for people who rton'l buy their own newspapers and subsequently have to strain their necks lo read someone else's. Eddy demonslralcs his way on' a park fence. Yep— he's a circus performer. Phone 4591 High Position No Worry OSHAWA, Canadd f/fj — Leslie Loncks. an employee of (he public utilities commission .had the task of painting the city's 79 metal lamp posts, using a none-ioo-stc-ady 20- foot ladder. He said the heiaht didn't bother him; only the thought! that he miirht spill paint on some ! husky pedestrian. | OJ5?
