tJf PP ar pe> Motnei Tuesday, March 6, 1956 Rtivings CHfltS HfcfiSE A tilil* At Thll, s LliiU 61 that! Not Mueh of Yep, the State safely Gomis* sion has decided that there will be another year's service for your car license plate and for 1957 thei'e will be attached to your plates a small aluminum tag Which will indicate that your car license has been taken care top holidays? Here's one 6n congress. Oho North Dakota congressman com plained recently that, the restau rants charge a nickel extra for And one res- explains tha bread with meals., taurant manager of, so to speak. the •Commission According to an additional $107,500 will, have to be "appro* priated to provide the 1957 plates and that is a JLpt: of money, So, when you get ready to buy license plates for next year your dollars and dollars Will only get you a small aluminum tag to attach to your plates, so to speak. Hence you can figure on the small tag being attached to yoUr -plates, but the cost won't be reduced, you'll dig up the usual annual car license, so to speak. • i-uQu-tfi Yes, it was Wednesday, .ihe 29th of February, an additional day added to the year's 365 days every four years: And to' the folks who happen to have a birthday on the 29th of February there was the fourth annual celebration, so to, speak. I have a nephew, George Reese, of Spokane, who celebrates his birthday once every four years and if his birthdays mean his age he is now only 5 years .pf age though he has- existed twenty years, since 1936. So it is that oW the 29th of February, the. fourth and leap . year, birthday celebrations, are the more' extensive and deeply celebrated, so to speak. Why wouldn'tUt Be a good idea to pick the 29th qf February as an. installation day for 1 ,the president , and the high offices, make ; them a sort*of 4th of July proposition in the ramble of big days or tip- free bread Would mean a deficit because on account of when bread was free some congressmen used to fill up on it, buying nothing but a cup of coffee. Wonder how the tall corn growing state congressmen react to this-*do they expect free bread along with a nickel cup of coffee? Guess I was all wrong when 1 predicted last week that we were going to' have a small blizzard the lasf week in February and Ken Strahorn tells me I had no business making forecasts because on account of I riever forecast rightly anyhow. And Phil Kohlhaas tells me that I shouldn't, ever make forecasts because on account of my forecasting if never to be depended upon. And Wade Sullivan tells me that I should never make weather forecasts but should confine them entirely to democratic forecasts. And maybe he's got something there. So this year I propose to do some democratic forecasting later on and maybe I'll really prove good at democratic line- ' upping, so to speak. However, I did forecast that President Eisenhower was coming out again for re-election • to the presidency and in this I was right because on account of he has "come out" so to speak. But again, I repeat, I'm not going to Vote for him and again, , maybe he'll tell me he didn't need my vote. But somehow from,what I have been told and- what I hear there seems 8 possibility that there \yill be a lot more democratic votes this year and it might have some effect on the president's candidacy, so to speak. However, we'll hear more about that between now and the November election. It was the other day Ihai I done • a lot of' quizzing among .gents' as to,how they like spring or do' they'like it better than WELCOME! BUFFALO BOOSTERS hot summer or cold winter an< I found that to'many gents s|Jrlflj is the bestest of best seasons/so to speak. It Was Heinle Stebrltfc who told me that he was always the happiest when spring hac sprung or spring had sprang be cause on account "bf he dldti' love blizzards nor was he parti cularly- fond of the hotter suni mer angle. And Gene Hood claims =that the spring time ih the year suits him the utmost because on account of the weathet is not too hot and it's not too cold Oliver Carlson claims that there should be no : other season except spring because on account o] it brings to folks that satisfied and joyful feeling that zero and snow shoveling are goners from now on. And Charles Paxson told me the other day that it would suit him swell if there was no other season except spring, nof too cold, not too hot, just right for honestly comfortable temperatures, and he's got something there. Yep, spring is f dandy 'and good season, according to most people, especially those who can't line up with zen 6r, 102 in the shade, so to speak North Kossuth Coiupfe Observe 40 Years Wed Swea & Eagle—Mr and Mrs William Brock where, honored on their 40th wedding anniversary at their farm Home in Swea Township with open house afternoon and evening.

You're going to get a wonderful thrill when you take the wheel of your first Cadillac and head out into the country—a long, long way from home, We're not just talking about the car's wonderful performance an,d its extraordinary riding and handling ease—satisfying and inspiring though these are bound to be. No, we're talking about something more. We're talking about the friendliness you're going to encounter—How you'll be driving among people who seem to know something about you, and who are ready to trust and respect you as if they had known you for a long, long time. This is true, of course, because Cadillac quality and goodness have made it the overwhelming preference of people of judgment and discrimination—and the whole wprld has come to, know and understand this and to appreciate what it means. Yes, your best foot is forward when it rests on the throttle of a 1956 Cadillac. This great personal benefit is strictly a plus value when you take the title of the "car of cars." It comes in addition to the long-known Cadillac virtues: matchless beauty and luxury and comfort, and safety and long life. Why not consider a Cadillac for your next car? It is a logical choice—snot only for quality and goodness and prestige—but for economy of owner* ship and operation as well. We suggest that you come in soon *nd see for yourself. We'll be happy to give you a personal demonstration at the wheel . , . and to explain why this is such a wonderful time to make the move from every standpoint- Ernie Williams Pontiac-Cadillac W. 5tf»tt
