Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News - Tuesday, April 11, W8T - Pag« flw Happy Hand Talk of Hawaii Gentle as an ocean breeze, graceful as a swaying palm is the silent hand language of Hawaii—the hula. Demonstrating for classmates at Pan American's International Stewardess College at Miami, Fla., is Karen Naka- tnura of Honolulu. FLUTTERING motions In front of the lips mean a favorite word, "kiss." THE GRACEFUL ALOHA In hula-ese carries a number of meanings, such as hello, goodby, good luck, I love yon, and other useful sentiments. FINGERS stooped toward the mouth act out "poi," Hawaii'* national disb. A GENTLE plucking motion with the hands symbolizes the word "flower" in hula. Hal Boyle NEW YORK (AP) -Life is like a squirrel burying acorns. The acorns are memories. Planted in the heart, they take root there and in time become mighty oak trees, and pleasant indeed it is at times to lie in their green shade and recall the past. When it comes to saving up memories, every man is his own midas. No other human being in the world can quite match his hoard, for each collection is unique and personal. But it is fun to share memories. And youve got a pretty good collection yourself if you can look back and remember When: A dude was a fellow who wore gray spats and pearl buttons. In a small town nothing really memorable usually happened except on Saturday nights. During the week you talked about what you had done last Saturday night and what .you looked forward to doing next Saturday night. Every school desk held an inkwell, and sooner or later every young lad succumbed to the temptation to dip into the inkwell a braid from the girl who sat at the desk in front of him. Only spendthrifts or very wealthy men bought suits that had only one pair of pants. Nobody thought cigarettes but it was caused cancer, agreed by many that if youj crec jit. smoked them regularly you were Those pretty likely to come down with tuberculosis, which then was just as feared. Children didnt expect When people took a plane trip they took it for granted that they would probably get airsick from bumpy weather sometime during the journey. A nickel cherry pop was fiie most popular soft drink in America. But if you wanted to make a big splurge you bought your best girl a 10-cent ice cream soda—just to let her know -that when she went out with a real sport like you nothing was toS good for her. If a warm spell came along during a cold winter, everyone sagelly remarked, "this is'pneu- monia weatSier. You knew you were in an up- and-coming town when the undertaker (he also ran the furniture store) sold off his horses and bought a motorized hearse. A small boy couldn't make up his mind whether to grow up and be the engineer of a train or the conductor who took up the tickets and also, with an air of judicious gravity, would pull a big gold watch from his pocket and tell passengers exactly what time it was—to me exact second. It was thought that, if there should ever be a second world war, the weapon most to be feared would be poison gas. A big chunk of the U.S. pop ulation still preferred to pay cash and thought it somewhat immoral to buying anything on mailmen: 7,000 are bitten an- i nually. This costs Uncle Sam $1 million in sick leave and medical expenses. Now that spring is-here, don't absently-mindedly start nibbling on strange plants. They can he deadly. Among familiar ones that are toxic are lilies of the valley, oleander and rhododendron. Oh, for the life of a lion!. It seems the king of the jungle is a lazy monarch. On a typical day he will spend three hours walking and stalking (he leaves most of the killing of prey to his wife), two hours eating and 19 hours resting or sleeping. If you don't eat 17.2 pounds of candy a year, your sweet tooth isn't as sweet as the average. Driving can be a strain on the heart as well as hard on the parents tained. their to keep them enter- They could spend a whole afternoon happily blowing soap bubbles through an old corncob pipe. It was a mark of real affluence to be able to have a cast iron stag in your front lawn. You didn't have to be a contortionist to get in and out of automobiles.

Perhaps one reason for the anxiety was fear of what the woman driver in the car ahead of them would do next. Rome solved that problem in 205 B.C. by passing a law prohibiting women from driving chariots.

While there is no fixed protocol for this kind of collective summit meetings, Gen. Gestido who took office March 1 — has decided to be on hand at Carrasco, nine miles from downtown Montevideo, to shake hands with each arriving president. Nineteen chiefs of state are scheduled to meet at Punta del Este April 12-14. Diplomatic efforts are being j made to convince Presidents Rene Barrientos of Bolivia and Francois Duvalier of Haiti to come. Gen. Barrientos has said he will not attend a meeting where his countrys aspiration for an opening to the sea will not be considered. Duvalier is afraid if he leaves his country, a revolution will follow. An inter-American presidential get-together was last held in 1956 in Panama. Worried Uruguayan officials estimate Biat the first presidents will be arriving Monday. Most are scheduled to fly in on number on penalty of banishment.
