10 (Satesbuffl ftiaistef'MeiiL ^jiisbufg. 111, Tuesday, July 1 7, 1973 A 'Jungle Book' Bedtime Story for Our Time By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UP1) - Additional bedtime stories for our times: The Lton and the Groundhog Once upon a time, watA sifted ttirttgi the jungle that the Lion's right to call himself "King of Bleats" was being challenged by a Groundhog frojr^ndtji»£ar^fJiefore^ The Lighter Side The Lion's friends were greatly concerned by the report. For the good of the whole jungle, they said, the Lion must remain head of the animal kingdom. So they held a meeting to discuss how to prevent the Groundhog from taking over. "I've got a plan," the Weasel said. "Why don't we hire the Mouse to dig a hole near the Groundhog's tunnel? Then h* could eavesdrop on (he Ground* hog and his friends and learn how they intend to overthrow the Lion." "That's a good Idea!" the Jackal said, "but don't tell the Lion what we're doing to help him. He's got enough on his mind trying to pacify the Bears." He Would Need Help The Mouse said he could do the job, but he would need to hire the Elephant, the Rhinoce­ ros and the Hippopotamus to help hbn. "They have bigger ears than I do, the better to hear what the Groundhogs are plotting," the Mouse explained. "Yeah, but how are you going to get an elephant, a rhino and a hippo into a mouse hole?" the Jackal asked. "I guess I'll have to make it a little bigger than usual," the Mouse said. "In which case I'll need another $50,000." The Leopard, who was late arriving, having stopped en route ito change his spots, raised an objection. "Why go to all that trouble and expense?" he said. "The Lion Is about 50 times bigger than the Groundhog, who is afraid of his shadow anyhow. If the Groundhog tries to become King of Beasts, the Lion can simply swat him once with his paw and that will be the end of that." Can't Take Any Chances "That 's the kind of talk we used to hear when the Hare was running against the Tor* toise," the Weasel retorted, ,"and we all know what teptoened in that race. I say We can't take any chances on the Lion getting clobbered by the Groundhog." So the Mouse's project went forward as scheduled. But one day the Skunk, oortous about the huge excavation near the GrotMdhog tunnel, stuck his nose into the mousehole and saw (he elephant, the Rhinoceros and the Hippopotamus standing with (heir ears to the wall. The Skunk raised such a stink about this, it attracted the Lion 's attention. The Lion ran up to see what was going on, fell into the mousehole and broke a leg. Moral: If you have the right kind of friends acting in your behalf, your enemies Won't seem so bad. i Crash Kills Civil Engineer Givenreo ^asproWMinCid Fossils of flowering plants 165 million years old have been found. , TV7 Atfie Tvr - Auction EVERY WEDNESDAY TV 7 (1:30 P.M.)

OF ILLINOIS AUTO • HOME •BUSINESS By MORT REED Many foreign countries display the image of a coin of the realm on their postage stamps. Among the more frequent are the Shekel stamps of Israel, But if you are looking forward to seeing a United States coin on one of our stamps, forget it. It will never happen. Money Clips The numismatic industry has been trying for years to get the postmaster-general and his Stamp Advisory Com-, mission to consider the idea but to no avail. The commission absolutely refuses to respond to suggestions from interested members of the non- collecting public as well as some of the more influential politicians in the collecting society.

Open Monday & Friday til 9. Eight-cent Stamp Collecting issue recently released by the United States Postal Service. The numismatic industry is almost willing to settle for any design, even to the point of duplicating the stamp issue. It would make the ideal alternate on the same sheet with the Benjamin Franklin Stamp Collecting stamp; in the same color and of the same value. But the lack of any response from the advisory commission makes it perfectly clear they have no intention of publicizing coin collecting with the same amount of fervor as they herald stamp collecting. Certainly a postage stamp imprinted with the likeness of a U.S. coin would have no less artistic appeal than the atrocious Drug Abuse or Love stamps. And it would definitely be more attractive than the insidious five-pointed star issued as the Bicentennial Commission symbol. WHILE COIN collecting is not the largest free participation hobby in the world, it most assuredly is the oldest and long overdue for public recognition. Coin collecting has done much to promote philately or stamp collecting by combining coins and stamps under one facet very popular in both fields, The Philatelic - Numismatic Com­ binations and First Day Covers. But what are we getting in return? It is most difficult to arouse stamp collectors to the cause of a Coin Collecting stamp because they have kept busy with the constant flow of postage issues dramatizing the Postal Service. Those I have discussed the matter with agree there should be a coin stamp but they offer no suggestions and decline invitations to join letter writing groups to see if such an issue is possible. This means there will never be a Coin Collecting stamp unless the noncoltecting public decjdes to join forces with the numismatic industry and bring appropriate pressure to bear in the right places. If you,feel it is time for such a postal issue, whether you are a collector or not, write to your congressman and ask for his advice and assistance. Include a copy of this article and save yourself the trouble of trying to explain the matter in a long letter. IF YOU WOULD rather express your support, or objection, directly to the coin and stamp collecting industries, write: Margo Russell, Editor, Coin World, P.O. Box 150 Sidney, Ohio 45365, or: Ed Neuce, Editor, LINN'S Stamp News, P.O. Box 29 Sidney, Ohio 45365. Tell them I sent you. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
