And so there ydu have ft, winter is. with us again., But It was nice of the weatherman to hold off till we reached December 1, so to speak. I love the color of snow, its pure, whiteness, but I' sure' don't like to shovel it. And, after all, we of the present age could get along fine without snow. It's a nuisance on highways and a car doesn't trayel in it as did the Old team and sleigh. Arid so long as we have no horses and Sleds now there is no 'use of snow, just makes it miserable with its shoveling and off and on .chains on the car, so to speak. There is only one time in the year when I really feel snow adds to the occasion and-that's Christmas. And I'd sure appreciate it if Snow just didn't fall on my sidewalks, so to speak., It Was one' night last week that I got out the dictionary and checked: on 'some words that I hear every day. And there were 554 words in that .dictionary that began with "over" and that is one word that has been applied to • me through the many years And I have gotten busy with my memory and here are some of the words beginning with "over" that has'been attached to' me, so to speak. For instance it was Leo" Immerfall who once told me I Was bverassertive at times when I talked politics. And Bless Rusk told me that I was always trying to overimpress folks with the tunes on my harmonica. And Armin Schultz told me that he was expecting me to overdrive my car one of these, days because at times I didn't hook in' the overdrive with which my bus is 'equipped. And maybe he's got something there. I'll never forget the time'when Ed Cullen 'first heard and saw 1 me'fiddle and he said "You are sure overbrilliant with those catguts and horsetail hairs." And brother, was that •ever a corripliment. , . —-o— - .. , Casey Loss has told me sev eral times that I overexert myself when I keggle. And-mayAae I do but I am jiot bverpr'Sficigiit with strikes. like Casey is, so to speak. But it's true that "over" hangs onto me many times and in'many angles. For instance, 1 nm over-age, I have over-alls, sometimes I may be over-bearing, I have an overcoat and overshoe* at times I overcome an argument with the Mrs., and several times at the banks I've been overdrawn, a lot of times I oversleep, and it's a cinch I often over-spend and so again I'm broke. I am not overweight and I never over-work. So you can see the word "over" is both with me and against me as well as it also may apply to you. How easy it is to find "over" with yiju and against you, when there are 554 words starting with "over." —o— ' And so I thought I'd check the word' "under" as the opposite ot "over", and that proved interesting, too. There are 154 words in the dictionary which start with "under" and again quite a few of them size up with me. No I am not an underagent, under- clerk, underofficer, under-official, undersecretary, understeward, underteacher or undertenant. And I am under-age too because on account of the age of these modern times is set at 90. And I am not underfed though at times I have a hankering for more of pie to stuff. At times I feel like an underling when the foreman starts to bossing. Sometimes I am under-rated but that never becomes too serious. I never underestimate the feeling that friends hold toward m,e. And-1 am sure got underprivileged because on account of I blow the harmonica and saw the fiddle. And I understand everything and this I brag about. Now you will notice that I haye used the scribbling of words that had "under" for a starter. Of course I haven't used all of the 154 "unders" in the dictionary but I hope you will feel that I know the words "over" and "under" mean. Some time you check the dictionary and just see what the two words cover in every day life. Oh, yes, I forgot, but I am not overwealthy because on account of I am under- wealthy. Both dictionary words, so to speak. And that's that. The Trip To The Paper Office We studied all about printing In a unit in history. We thought we'd understand it more • If we did a printing press see. We decided to take an excursion But didn't know where to go 'Till a brillant schoolmate said, "I know, 1 know!" "We'll visit the Upper Des Moines Newspaper office some day. I'm sure we'll enjoy it And we won't have to pay. So thanks to Mr. Waller For showing us around And telling us things So more knowledge we found. BUI Brewer Odgaaid's 6th grade \ • . • ' .
