This may, ,ir may not. be what Mr Einslien was talkinc about, but as far as I'm {.oncernod it is the only theory of Relativity I can understand. • » » A person is also pretly much stuck with his ancestor---. Bu'. the. (• are advantages that ancestors have over relatives. the firs' and foremost being that ancestors are always dead and can't talk hack. You don't have to be nice to the rich variety for they've already left their money to sumo- body else, the famous ones can't disclaim being kin to you and you don't have to send any of ill..'in Chrutmas eaicls or birthday presents. The uninteresting ones can't come to visit you even if you do have a cuest room and the impoverished ones can't hit you foi a loan until pay day. • * » Lesl somebody gel Ihe idea lhal I don't like my relatives, let me hasten to add that I am extremely fond of mine—-even the ones who persist in voting Republican.

So I'm going to do what I suspect lots of people who brag about their ancestors do make up some big, fat lies about them. * * * Now, my father's family had a very early start in America. I have it on good authority, having just this moment made it up, that the Mayflower was simply full of ancestors. They skipped off Plymouth Rock, traded some beads with the Indians for patches of land and chopped themselves down some trees for log cabins. When the Revolutionary Wai- came along they revolted with the best of them. Even in those days we had quite a revolting family. * * * You all remember Belsy Ross, don't you? She made the first flag of our country. She insisted that the stars in the banner have five points instead of six and she made the Red, White and Blue from the white shirt of a soldier, the blue cloak of Captain Abraham Swartout and an old red petticoat. Things were tough in my great-great-great Grandmother's clay and they used whatever was at hand. No, her name, wasn't Betsy Ross but she still had something to do with making the fiag. Betsy ran out of thread about half-way along in the project so she borrowed a spool from my, I don't know how-many- greats, Grandma Maekey. Meanwhile Ihere were whole swarms of our ancestoi s over in Germany. When they made up the national anthem. The Watch On The Rhine, sonv;' of our great, great grandparents were doing the watching. Those of them who could carry a tune were named Faust and they took to writing operas. Most of uur ancestors got to heck out of Germany before Kaiser Wilhelm began casting green eve.-- a; the rest of the world. * * * Now, Admiral Charles Dwight Siiisbee wa.-. quite a boy. He was graduated from the naval academy in 1863 and took command of Ihe battleship Maine. Everybody knows what that ship had I to do with the Spanish-American war. He's been dead since 1923 so I guess it's safe to claim him as an ancestor since we bear the sam_-; name. Another real man I'm claiming as an ancestor is Parley Pratt. I ran across him the other day when I was reading a nistory of the Mormons. I tecl he is just as courageous as the C.ip'.am of the Maine. Pailey h.iri tnu teen wive,-' Much as I'd like lo please our kids. I can't figure out any relationship to their current hero. Davy Crockett. There just isn't 'anybody by the name of Crockett on our family tree. But somebody had to lard down the, "bar" that Davy shot when lie wa.-- three. .-omebody had to hoe Davy's wife's corn when lie was away fighting Indian- and some- b-'ciy had lo bring the sad si ••;;.of Davy's aemise al the A!a:n, to hi- soi rowing family. I claim it was t-ither a Mackey, a Parrot* or a Chase, since they are all Ancestors of our's. That would be a great feather :n our cap if we could prove it. but Id muc". rather haw a present-day relative who was engaged in the nianu lactuic of cooiu.kin caps. * * « Ancestors, no matter how fabulous can't do a person mu.-h good it he can't live up to their in present-day life. In fact. i. has been. -aid. that the man wh-> boast.-- only of Ins ancestors belongs to a tamily better dead than alive. Each human is a personality in I-.:.-, own right and neither tile virtues, nor. fortunately, tiv. tii.n'.i of Jus loibeai. can be eom- pl"tely handed down to him. Jus". the same. 1 wish all of our grandparents had left more eomplcU records ot their lives. The stone- ol their joys and sorrows, their aims and fulfillments would make fascinating readings. « • • The most recent mystery in our iii'igiiboi hood has been solved. Mr- C'ar.i Pratt polished up iu-i white -hoes the other day ana .-.'. them in tin sun out by the b...-U door to ciiy. When siie went to put them on to go to a nice; in;: there was but one shoe.

Sometimes, it's measured by how much you get. But here's one that's a whopping bargain by both measures. Because right now—for the leastest money of the year—you can buy the mostest Buick in history. That, Mister, is because we're adding a profit- sharing bonus allowance on top of the long trade-in allowances we've been making all year. And when we say the "mostest" Buick, we mean the most-wanted Buick ever built—the one that has broken every record in the book—outselling by far all other cars except the two most widely known smaller ones. We mean the Buick that brings you the most for your money in terms of mighty V8 Power—of real family-size room—of bold fresh styling. The one that gives you the most buoyant ride ever born of all-coil springing. And we mean the only car blessed by the smooth magic of Variable Pitch Dynaflow*—world's first transmission built on the switch-pitch principle of the modern plane's propeller. Come on in. We're ready and waiting to make you the deal of your life on the most thrilling Buick ever. * Variable Pilch DjHaftoui is lie only Dynaflou' Buick buiUs today, It is standard on Roadmaiter, optional it modeit exlu coil on othtf Siriis, red i-!iu eencus of the neighborhood canine population was U.ken upon In-, return.
