SJ'JS iiqt'4— THE BAYTOWN SUN, TUESDAY, MAY 27, 1952 * Editorials.^. Congratulations Sun Slants Due Out Sincere congratulations to voters of Harris County Fresh Water District No. 8 and not so much because they authorized a $125,000 bond issue for water and sewer line extensions but because of the fact that so many folks out there took the trouble to go to the polls to make known their wishes. It's not too hard at times to get the folks all steamed up about conflicting personalities in a political race, but it's very hard most of the time to get them worked .up over bond elections and abstract propositions like bond assumption proposals. It wasn't that way out on the bays west of town last Saturday. The information was that 475 people responded to mark their (Today's Bible Verse II! BEHOLD, •trust, and GOD is my salvation; I will not be afraid: for the Lord 'Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2. ballots. In fact, there ..were so many the election officials ran out of prepared ballots. Quick-thinking Dee Tag was equal to the occasion, however. He had some old sample ballots in a packet. He quickly made them into bond ballots, and the last dozen or so voters used them just before the polls closed at 7 p.m. election day. With the election so one-sided, the courts probably would have held the election a legal one even if the final 12 votes had been carved on a tree out on the schoolgrounds. The Sun takes pride in any election when the people respond. The bond elections here in the City of Baytown this year left little < i Washington Merry-Go-Round: ' Tidelands Oil Lobby Fights s Veto doubt as to what the people wanted. The same thing is true in the heated Cedar Bayou school consolidation controversy where over 1300 qualified voters made >known their wants in a history-making election. And now the Wooster folks do likewise. If our people in East Harris County will just continue to respond as well jn the yearsi to come as they have Ujus far in 1950, we won't lose too much sleep over the outcome of elections, -even if the outcome doesn't happen to suit our private fancy. The Sun believes the Frenchman who believed that 50,000,000 of his fellow-countrymen couldn't do wrong certainly was on *•• the right track. We'd even 'go so far as to borrow his philosophy and say that Ea-t Harris County folks by the hundreds or the thousands Aren't likely to go very far astray themselves. . Things are looking up out west of town. They're building beautiful houses by the dozens. They're building a business district along Market street that promises to be quite a section. And they're taking great personal interest in their community affairs. Now that's a combination that's hard to beat. v And that's the reason we're extending our warm congratulations.

Having no pattern to follow, except that of the women who write about beauty for women. I shall have to adopt their style. Here we go. men. When you take off your coat in a bcre joint, and roll i:p your sleeves, have you any idea how unsightly your elbows might be? Do they resemble a two-dollar alligator pocketbook? If they do, you must stop neglecting them. Say goodnight to the group, rush home as fast'as you can, rub your elbows with some established lubricating oil, cover them with a. pair of elbow gloves, and hit the sack. Follow this practice for a month end you'll undoubtedly be crazy, but women will remark about the beauty of your elbows. You must remember, of course, to buy the proper oils for the different seasons. Any filling station attend- ant will "be nappy to test them on your skin. -'- ;,' It is amazing how many men go through life with angles that are too thick. To reduce them is such a simple thing. I have found that the very best way to bring thinness to your ankles is the 'following exercise: On arising in the morning, stand for 12 minutes on one foot on the living room coffee table. Stretch the left arm straight put until it is horizontal with your bound volumes of Zane Grey. Extend the right arm until a catch in your side makes you fall off the cofCeee table fiat on your face." Lift hips. Roll hips.' Move all ten toes in a rotating motion and then tiptoe to the telephone, call your office and tell them won't be able to come day because you have a oothache. Keep up this exercise for two months and you'll be on Skid Row t but your ankles will be thin. Take proper care or your hair, because it is your crowning glory- How many of us have brittle harr and do nothing about it? How many of us have oiiy hair and ditto? There is nothing better for brittle hair than to give up eating peanut brittle, just as there is nothing better for oily hair than never to visit New Orleans. Almost the first things that a woman looks at when she meets a men are his ear lobes. If they are creased with worry lines, she is likely to say to herself that a man \vho is careless of his ear lobes Is also likely to be careless about little attentions such as washing the dishes, serving her breakfast In bed, bringing her a corsage of the first fresh strawberries of the season, emptying" the ashtrays when they are filled, and taking her to double -features on rainy nights.. Ear lobe care is very .simple, Use a good ear lobe cream before you go to bed tonight There are a dozen good ones on the market. On awakening, massage the lobes until you get a headache. In the office, when no one Is looking, slip'a parka over your head, and pull your ear lobes sharply downward, using your thumbs and index fingers.-This may cause you to be fired, but you will always have the satisfatcion of knowing you can get a job as a bloodhound.
