And. that screen; ap- proximately some 2300 square inches, sure picked up bugs and lighway particles by the thousands. I cut a piece of paper on, square inch and applied it to-the screen arid there were 41 bugs and road particles in that square inch. So, with a total of 2352 square inches and 41 bugs and particles, per inch I lugged home on that,screen 98,432 bugs and particles. And' supposing that, I didn't have the screen there sure would have been a bunch of some thousands 'of those bugs and particles sipped through the radiator and found places under the hood and upon the engine and working parts in the car, so to speak. Sure is smart to have a screen cover the front of the car during these buggy summer days and drives. ; —"-O '' Yes, I drove 200 miles through :the weekend but I didn't have •the- speed up to 7>UfiQr90. FIRST - FIRST SERVED AT BJUSTROM'S FURNITURE an hour like a lot" of the drivers of today do. I have found that holding at a steady and .regular speed of 60 miles per hour I get places just as soon as. .the", jerk who has lo speed at 80-and SO miles per hour. And I .am; sure heartily in favor of the speed- lim* it of 60 miles per hour as/.suggested by our governor, Il^ould be swell and as well reduce the daily highway killing.' —0—"' •'.- ' ;• • '• ..• And next week we have' June with us and then comes the 21st of that month and that's ; the middle day of the year and thfen the sun begins to move south ware again and before we 'krtbw it there's the fall staring 'us s ift the face. And seems as tteugr we have only had a couple.o: weeks of go-called •surtime] weather following the lateness 0 spring this year, with cold, arid frosty days way up into-May. I just seems like the seasons^ .are d"a"fiing--- q o .slow and we-,have fall weather on Christmas,-'•bib: zards on April Fool Day and the spring rains fall in June. ,Bu there isn't much we can do abou it, so it seems. However, at thi writing, Monday evening, wer having a swell and fine rain shower and that sure is some thing we have every reason t be thankful for because on ac count of things were gettm pretty dry and fields and'crop were suffering, so to speak.

And I guess he's got something ON OUR ENTIRE 1955 and so forth. And at that John insists that there could be more "yes" words and he suggested that I should invent some more because on account of usually "yes" indicated contented agreement upon conversational questions and problems and so forth. ;. ..;..-• ." •-*-• r Another indication that sum- Iner is really here is the activity associated with the baseball, and ithat. too, is a lot of fun. No, I don't play baseball but I like to watch the, other gents make their -hits, run their bases and count tthcir, scores. And the baseball eason in these. United States_ is a surely important and active there. Being a Dane I do know that there is only one word ' yes in Dane and that is "ja." >But we hear every day the word^'yes . replaced with . "yep" and ;' yap and "yea" and "aye"/and. ah-na, ne. I remember in the by-gone lays when I was a school kid we tarted to play baseball and or- anize school room and school .earns.. And in those days there were' only usually two or three vho wore mils, the catcher, the iirsf baseman and one of t jielders. That was a long til ago but baseball was as enjoyable and popular as it is today even though the players had to catch the ball bqre-handed, so to speak. And many times in those long-ago days the bats were home-made, But baseball was just as enjoyable and popular as it is today, especially among the teen-agers.
