Roving CO cmui ftettt A tHlt* e* fU«, ft LM«* •I flit; Woi M«ek ft* A*ftittf . The V. M. C A. was founded in !«•». After about a monlh of high temperature and heat suffering it was Monday that the weatherman sort of eased up on the 96 degree stuff and it was one day that we all sort of liked, too, because on account of we didn't do so much perspiring, so to speak. It was one day when the temperature was sort of near normal and we all got a big kick out of it, too. It was heat in a moderate degree and the day was not characterized by the lousy high temperature we've suffered for a month, and short and tall, light and heavy, folks all enjoyed it. It's a cinch that 90 degrees is a relative quantity or intensity too hot for comfort. And 90 degrees react on those who are thick skinned while those who are thin skinned can take it with lessor suffering or worrying, so to speak. And it just seemed that folks couldn't get used to the 90 degree angle, too much of a drain of perspiration. Of course there are some gents who sort of got used to the heat and profited by it by way of not taking on baths every dav because on account of the continued wiping of perspiration from one's skin served as a skin cleaner angle. By way of continued wiping away sweat drops with a big towel a purpose was served and that was that by applying a towel . you just also cleaned your hide every time and so no bath. —o— Yep, I did some ariihmaiicing anent the perspiring and the sweat drops that a gent could find on his arms. I sat quietly in a chair for half an hour right in the shining heat of the sun And so I counted the sweat drops that issued from my hide because of the heat. And the heat and sun brought out 16 sweat drops on one fore arm and 11 drops on the other, 27 total. Just think of that. And then there were sweat drops aplenty on a gent's face, ton. I should have measured the drops as to the number in a cup but I got so disgusted with the heat and the sweating that anthmaticing lost interest. But if you sweat 27 drops of sweat on just your two arms in a half hour it just seems that first thing y ouknow you'd have a half pint to your credit, so to speak. Be that as it may, the heat has been plenty tiresome, disgusting and sweaty and here's hoping we get relief plenty soon. Now if there was only some way to save and store the heat for" the coming months we could take the heat over-heated heat with more patience. I quizzed quite a few gents as to their love or hate for the hot spell we've suffered the past month and their reactious were sonu-what varied, so to speak. It was Wade Sullivan who told me ST RIC TL V B U SIN E S S by "He doesn't need an assistant yet — I can still see his head!" that after the first two or three days of the heat he became so accustomed to it that he didn't suffer one bit. And "Dutch" Honsbruch told me that there Wrts not one iota of heat suffering on his part, in fact he could take it and remain happy. And Tim O'Brien said that heal, high or low, never gave him any trouble, in fact he loved it compared to the zero breezes on new year's day. And "Bill" Reinders told me that hot summer heat didn't worry him a bit because on account of if tho breeze WuS too h'.it then lie picked up a newspaper ;md fanned the heat from his vi-aue. so to speak. And Harold Gilrnore said that he had found a way to combat heat by carrying a silver dollar, which is always cool, and grabbing the dollar helpt-d offset the heat. And Law;- -nee Hut/el suyp that heat suffering on the part of many peopie came through their sort of giving in to temperatures instead of fighting it. And C. H. Ostwinkle told me that heat never both? red him because on account of }v_ ju.-t refused to recognize it. It was Afmin Schult* who agreed with me that too much heat wasn't so pleasant to endure but even at that neither WHS too much cold so he just didn't let the heat bother him. "Soup" Brigg.; tells me that one way to battle heat is by taking deep breaths and whistling the breath out of your lungs. That way you don't give thought to the heal and so it is not so hot after all. Roy Bjuslrom says that the best way to battle heat and forget that it is hot is to take on a cup of good coffee, and he's got something there. —o— Yep, il has been plenty hot the past month but now that the outside is cooling off we'll appreciate the cooler weather that much more.' As far back as I can re- membor I am sure that the past steady heated monlh has been the longest in years and although we were beginning to get used to the heat we are all glad that temperatures are about to become normal and easier to take, so to speak. And I must admit that the weatherman does pull some real lousy stunts occasionally and the past month's heat spell wa.s sure one of 'em, so to speak.
