Mangus, and George M. Miller. Today By William Barbeau THERE'S A VERY tired and. very well-known, proverb In our language about people reach for the a figure of speech thai carries the mean- ins of people who are trying to achieve the impossible, to somewhere or do sonnthinj; beyond the bounds of human powers. There's another old one around about the moon, and that is the nursery rhyme with which 1 was lured into bed for a good many years the one that ends "and the cow jumped over the And all of a sudden, now, these things can't be used in Don't Let "Kidney Fatigue" Get You Down There Is no use letting inactive kidneys make you miserable.

If constipated also take Coltlcn Lax Tablets old way. All of a sudden, there's a new reason to tie up your brindle heifer, and a new reason why the proverb just I doesn't apply any more for it looks as if it isn't impossible any more either to actually git to the moon, or for a frisky Frei- san to hurdle it some night when it's full. But to explain. ABOUT TWO weeks ago. I sat here reading, and only half aware of what I was doing, switched thj radio on.

After a minute of the gurglings and splutt- erings that I can't have investigated until after my pay check comes the first of the month, there was the hum that showed I'd managed to find a station, and then, suddenly, out its little black case, the radio said, "Moon to earth. Moon to earth. Moon to earth. Over earth!" I dropped the book grabbed for a can of beer quickly, and did a double-take as it hasn't been done since Abbott and Cos: tello made their last movie- but I it, was all true. It was a scientif- radio program which dramal- teed the rocket trip to the moon which just isn't an Impossibility any more.

THEN, I'D almost forgotten the whole thing- pr shoved it to the back regions of the dark closet In my mind where I keep everything involved with atoni- ic power when I picked up the i Sunday paper of a week ago. to I find not only an article on the I situation, but more, the article was an announcement of a forthcoming movie called, ''Destination Moon." Apparently, the situation is roughly that the scientists- par- ticular'ly the astrolog-efs- those men who sit on hillsides in things that look like the eye from a Japanese goldfish with a machine gun out the front it have bi'Mi developing more and more powerful telescopes for a long time, and by combining forces with the physicists have been able to measure the moon, weigh it, take its temperature- don't ask me what this I proves and to establish the fact that It is only 250,000 miles away from the earth, and moving closer every couple of million light years. (Sorry, but 1 can't get into the definitions or figure's on this any more than I have; I'm probably more lost thai! you are right now!) ANYWAY, THINGS have stood like this for some time, and then my pet bugbear, which you've heard my loudest screams about --atomic power--was born, and suddenly, the mean to to the other planets that surround the earth was possible. Not only they'know the geography of the place now, but they 'know. too, that ths're is no water, no i vegetation, and in all prababili- ty, no living matter at all there.

All of which puts the man in the moon in a sort of enibarras- sins position! There are, of course, a faw i things wrong with taking off for i what will probably end up as the fiftieth state- there's no gravity, no wind, no storms, anci very little space between us and our next satellite, which means that you might start for there and end up whirling In matter for the rest of time a thought which is sort of uncomfortable unless you are interested in getting rid of extra aunts, grandparents, or babies. SO, WITH a slightly weary sigh, I whisper "All moon passengers please enter at gate 7. Your space ship is ready. Lead boots will be supplied, but we must ask you to leave your paring knives. All theories regarding the green cheese story are Communist propaganda!" Out of This World Reed Favors Hoover Report Washington Representative Daniel A.
