Walt' WE CAN DO WITHOUT GYPSIES It seems Impossible for any celebration, fair or gathering for purposes of fun to be held without a visit from those perennial wanderers, the gypsies. Where they come from, and where they go, nobody seems to know. Nobody welcomes them, nobody wants them, but they always manage to be on hand when a crowd gathers. Picked pockets, rifled tills, shoplifting and a half dozen other more or less petty crimes can usually be coincided with their presence in the community. If people want to be suckers enough to fall for that fortunetelling gag in gypsy tents, that's their tough luck. But In the meantime It would Mem that a strong discouragement of their presence might be Indicated, or else feet made so prohibitive for their concession space that they go to other more receptive communities. And it would be Interesting to find out whether or not this particular breed pays any income taxes or any other kind of taxes. After all, maybe it has been the success of the gypsy tribe* that has caused the sudden wave of automobile trailers and trailer-households. And in conclusion, the gyp-sy Is well named.
