Plato Finds Small Posers Are Toughest ny HAL HoVLE NEW VOttK (AP) - Sidewalk comments of a pavement Plato: Life's biggest problem is making small decisions, tt isn't by gulps but by gnat bites that moat of us are finally destroyed. The great questions of existence are pretty welt beyond our individual control. Since the vast decisions of civilization are out of our reach, why isn't everyone cheerfully fatalistic? ft is because of those nagging little decisions still left us. They wear us down and out in time. None is really important in itself, but they all add up to ulcers and tranquilizers. Take an ordinary man waking up on an ordinary day. He has to decide: "Can I get one more shave out of this blade, or must I put in a new one? "I can't find the toothpaste. If I don't brush my teeth, will they fall out before nightfall? Want Personal Advice Write To Galesburg 's Own ennij Penny for your thoughts appears every Tuesday and Friday in the Galesburg Register-Mail "What cause* that brown taste this morning? Too much soda In the scotch? Should I switch to flit- er cigarettes? "Where's that other shoe? Oh, there you are. Now, which shoe shall I put on first? "Why did I put on socks this color? What tie have I got that'll match them? "I'm sick and tired of eating noisy cereals for breakfast. But if I ask my wife to fix me a silent cereal, is it worth the fight? And what'll she say when I ask her for an extra buck for lunch? "Gee, I'm late. Shall I grab a cab or wait for the bus? Okay, I'll lake the cab. Can I get away with a dime tip—or might I need him again sometime?" Our hero arrives at work already wearying of decisions. But during the day he must also de cide— Whether he can safely postpone until tomorrow some problem that didn't fade away yesterday When to laugh as the boss tells a joke, when the boss himself never knows for sure that he reached the punch line; Whether the vitamin capsule he forgot to • swallow at lunch will do him any good if he swallows it half an hour later. • Whether he can safely sneak out 10 minutes early to be sure of getting a bus seat on the long voyage home. He creeps feebly across this threshold only to confront mote tense decisions: U he picks up the cat by the scruff of her neck and throws her out of his favorite armchair, will she turn him in to the ASPCA? Will his children become juvenile delinquents in revenge If he insists on tuning the television set to the program he wants instead of the program they want? Decisions, decisions, decisions— all day long, every day, Enough to crack a fellow's mind. As he turns restlessly in bed, he wonders if he'd sleep better if he used a smaller pillow. Or should he get up and take a pill? Oops— there's another decision. Birthday h Celebrated At Gilson GILSON - Mr. and Mrs. 0. C.
