••••*§•••••••••«•••••*•• THIS BUSINESS of sending television pictures of the moon across some 246,000 miles has the Old Goat amazed. It is amazing also that the people who do such things haven't come up with how to got the pictures good at home from a station only 50 to 75 miles away. Of course maybe if each householder spent a few billion dollars like the government does the picture could be brought in good. Anyway maybe the old codgers were right — the moon DOES look a great deal like a piece of Swiss cheese. * * * A COMPUTER to sort out suitable dates for lonely young men and women will be set up in a downtown New York City park. The city however isn't taking any chances and states in a warning tone it will not be responsible "for the looks of the date, the activities of the date, or anything that happens thereafter." That sounds pretty conclusive, and a disappointed young would-be lover can't sue the city if the computer pulled a boo-boo and gave a wrong number. What the Old Goat hears about New York City parks isn't good, what with mugging, hugging, and assorted crimes and misdemeanors a nightly occurance a fellow would not be too smart to depend on a machine to give him anything but a bum rap. * * * THE OLD GOAT hopes those machinists who struck ihe air lines are now satisfied. Seems they acted like they owned the country as well as the airlines. The Old Goat worried about all those stewardesses who had nothing to do while the planes were grounded. Not that the Old Goat was anxious to get into the fray again, but some nica young men should have been available 'to see the young ladies weren't too lonesome. However, having lived as long as the Old Goat has there isn't much worry but what the girls took care they were not completely bored with the lack of air activity. * * * NURSES IN New York and California are threatening to strike for higher pay and better working hours and conditions. The Old Goat thinks they have a good case, particularly with those who are sick.* However a well man takes a dim view of his doctor and nurse costs as long as he's well. When he's sick that's another matter entirely. Men particularly are usually fairly good patients, but it is said, the Old Goat does not vouch for authenticity, that women make the worst patients. Maybe the men like the nurses better than tbe women do. Anyway, if tbe Old Goat is sick, be wants a happy, contented, well paid, anxious to serve nurse holding his hot little hand. Yes sir—money's no object then. THESE "GOWNS" the girl singers wear when they do theii moaning and groaning are just plain gosh awful. They are tapered from . . er . . here down to their ankles and they can't make a real step. The old Hobble skirt of the late 1918-19s was cinch in a footrace compared to some of these outfits. Prank ly the more the singer goes in for that kind of a dress the worse a singer she is. Most oJ them don't sing a song any\ya> —they murder it! The mugging and off-key stuff is terrible When the gal is introduced as one having a "delightful new style of singing" the Old Goal heads for the refrigerator, and passes up the ecstasy of hearing her new style. It's always lousy * * * THE COUNTY FAIR is over and the old-time girly shows were not in evidence. They can't stand the competition. Nowadays the girls don't wear much more, if any, that the gents used to pay 50 cents to see for the "first show" so the Old Goat is told by one of the men about town who used to go into such places —just to check of course. However there were a few sharpy games, but the main push now is on the rides for the kiddies. They make the Old Goat seasick just to watch! 4-ALOONA (lowi) ADVANCE THURSDAY, AUG.
