6-Alflona (la.) Upper De4 Moines Tuesday, January 24, 1956 Ravings CHBtS flEESE A tltito el Thl», « LUit« of Thaw Mel Much of Winter was really with us last week for several days.. With 18 below on the zero string and with five inches of snow there was ho chance for argueing—'twas Winter. And, personally, I'm sure glad that daily we are nearing spring weather. Of course we may have much winter weather yet before spring .sets in and that's fair to believe because on account of winter always seems , to step on it just before the 29th of February, so to spenk. Do you remember, the older readers, the 20 years ago experience we had with winter the last week in February? Well, we may have a repetition of that this year. And I can't say that I look forward to that with any great degree of joy. Between you and I, there are many angles of winter that I don't care a hang for. Yes, I like the looks and color of snow, but that's all about it tha t t I can happily take. Sure, a good snow brings a more nnd more .cleanly look to town and country and yard, etc. But it's a nuisance to shovel. And you've got 'to wear rubbers or overshoes and that's a nuisance, too. Never in or out of the house without taking time out to put on the foot coverings, so to speak. And then when •snow melts and disappears it leaves mud to contend with and there it goes again, more dressing and undressing of shoes and feet every time you leave the house. No, I cant see.the need nor the use of snow and so' I'm always the happier in the summer months, wet or dry. And an- other'thing about winter, it's a nuisance because an account of RUSCO WINDOWS SALVANIZED STEEL SELF- STORING COMBINATION gives you more convenience and comfort than any other combination window I RUSCO DOOR HOODS AND V^INDOW CANOPIES add greatly to the beauty of your home) Charles Miller RUSCO SALES Phone 741-W after 6 p.m. Display at 116 So. Dodge. Algons there is that continual up-ex- oense to keep the home or phop mfficl'ently heated to live iri. Ano that's a money deal, costs plenty. No I don't know of one single good and joyful thing about Winter and so that's why I don'^like it, so to speak. ,' • " Yep, I'll take the'middle of the year months weather for mine, You say it's just as bad to have too much heat as it is to have too much cold. Well, that all depends. At any rate the cost to run a fan now and then to help cool off In the summer doesn't reach the heights that does the cost of a ton of coal, eh? And on a hot day you can hike to the basement, therels .always some relief. And in summer heat you can wear just a shirt and a pair of thin slacks, arid that's different from ,wearing heavy underwear and heavy clothes and ' art overcoat. No there just isn't any argument over, the two seasons because on account of summer is much cheaper than winter and much easier from a weather standpoint than winter with its cold and ice and. snow, so to speak. Yep; I'll take summer for mine and you can have winter for yours if you like it. Yep, politics Is with us again because on account of next November we're going to do voting for local, state and federal offices. And being as how there will be republican candidates and democratic candidates t h e r e' s sure going to be a lot of political battling from now on up to the close of the polls Tuesday evening, November 6, 1956. And from what I hear there's going to be some vote changing on that day, too. I have the names of seven republican gents who confidentially told me they were through with their party's hands in power and I'm betting, that there will be more of my republican friends who will admit that they're tired of the present political office holders and they're coming over to vote with me, democratic, next November 6th. And I'm happy about that, too. Are you? That Dime The "March of Dimes" is on the way, Let's not pass up another day To get in step with neighbor, friend, And dp our part and so extend A willing and a helping hand To polio stricken in our land. And what's a dime? I'm asking you. 'Twill buy a beer, oh yes, that's true, And also pay for half a pack, But not enough to buy a snack.. A dime or two won't take you far, Nor peck of dimes would buy a car, A dime is ne'er a lucky piece, But used for innocents to fleece. However, now a cause is found In which the dime becomes profound, And so a march is. on the way By which the dime is put in play. The purpose is to march at length In • ever growing daily strength, To Battle polio'(not in vain) And bring to victims health again. With cain or crutches thrown away, victorlng March of Dimes I'd say. So dig in pocket or /our purse For dime to help fight polio curse, Take step in "March jf Dimes" today, Let's help gel polio out of way. . EMiverinore Woman Killed, Car Vs.
