The MAGIC of AUTOMATIC HOT WATER Means Better Living R. F. D. with THERMOGAS Hot water—and plenty Lof it—is a "must" on "today's farms. Larger washings, more exten- _ sive canning and cooking, and the great emphasis on healthful cleanliness, all increase the need for hot water. It's so easy . . . and so efficient—to heat water the modern, automatic, Thermogas way. Let us show you how economically an automatic L.P. gas water heater can be installed in your home. Put Thermo- gas to work for you, NOW. It was Ihe other day that I ha< a chat with Frank Zender and he mentioned that there were times when he felt like scribbling sorrle verse about me to sort o compare with the rhythm I pile into the column occasionally bu he said he couldn't always think f fitting words to rhyme with hris and so I suggest that ha se such as bliss, hiss, kiss, miss, his, fizz, quiz or whiz, because on. ccount Of they'd go good with Chris. And for Reese he might ick up words like cease, crease, leece, geese,, grease, peace or ven police, and'they'd be pretty, ood. And he thought there ught to be some good words to hyme with Dane arid here are orrie, brain, cane, chain,, drain, 'rain, bain, pain, plain, rain and ame, etc., all good words to •natch up with Dane.' And here s hoping Frank takes pen in hand and rhythms about-me to taeac he band. I'd like it, you tell 'em. Dr. Thissen told me the other day that he hd just looked into a brand new and modern dictionary and he had found a list of words that started with "non" and he counted them and found there were 1,038 such usable words. And that rather surprised me, top. And I asked him did he remem- oer any of them and he came at me with this: "Yes, I remember at least nine of them that seemingly would be synonimous with you, for instance, nonbehgerent, nonbureaucrktic, nonintellectual, nonmischievous, nonobservant, nonplutocratic, nonpredictable, nonproficient and nonscholastic. And there may be others but i thought of you as-1 read 'these. And he's got .sorrfething there. But I am going to check over that list of words one of these days and maybe I could find some "nons" that'also'would synchronize with me from one or another angle, so to speak.

South Phillips St. Algona, Iowa •It'has been suggested to me hat we should organize a "Joke 3 ost Club" in Algona and then nave some cards printed and pin one to each joke post when they are installed. The card should cad: "This is a parking joke post but it is no joke when you slip your nickel into the slot." I don't suppose the meter minded city councilmen would approve of such an organization and especially they would not approve -oi decorating the joke posts with such a'card. If such an organization was formed here I'd be tickled to serve as secretary because on account ,of I've got a typewriter and I'd be tickled to copy and deliver to the rneter minded councilmen all activities of the club. And I don't suppose it will be long now until hole digging and planting of joke posts will start on the main drag. Of all the activities of a meter minded council this joke post deal sure tops the bunk. When I speak of our meter minded councilmen I do not have reference to the meter which covers systematically arranged and measured rhythm in verse, the property of a verse that is divided into feet or syllabic groups, or the rhythmical structure as concerned 'with the division into measures of a uniform number of beats or time units in music. I don't know the meter minded council gents well enough as to whether or not they are musically inclined and can warble, play a iddle or blow a mounth organ, o to speak. So it is when I men- ion the meter minded gents it s in mind the meter that measures officially commodities, an nstrument for measuring, usual- y for recording automatically he time measured for parking a ar. There is a difference in the meaning of the meter in your lymnal and the meter which checks your parking time. However, it could be that the meter minded gents on our city council may have in mind and approve of both kinds of meters and maybe that had much to do with the meter minded gents handing us .he joke,posts after all.
