5—AL60NA (Iowa) ADVANCE THURSDAY, SfiPf. 1, 1W6 • '•' " .'.'''. ....-: ..;—;— : ~ - ~- •• - --V •*•••«•*****•••••••••••» (Si MOST PLEASANT Monday morning was to see all the little darlings on their way to school with clothes on for a change. They had gone all summer half- naked in shorts and whatever the girls call skirts, and the boys with shorts and an open 1 skin above to the sun. The small 1 girls were dressed up to the teeth for the first day and instead of racing around and prancing like they have all summer now just marched demurely a• long, very conscious they were dressed up. High school girls who had worn those gosh-awful tight pants and shorts deals all summer had dresses on and they looked right pretty instead of like drop-outs from the charm ''•school. The Old Goat also thought he saw a gleam of relief in some .of the mammas freed after a summer of constant i .-duty. * * * THE BRANIFF advertising is fresh and unusual but the one after the conclusion of the ' strike left the Old Goat a bit cold. It showed a stewardess sitting on the ground rubbing ' her feet thankful the rush was " over. But she wore bloomers, '•'• said to be by Pucci (whoever 1 that clown may be or whatever it is) and they didn't add a thing to the glamour of air 1 travel. Anyway Braniff has planes in fancy colors and the ' stewardesses change styles ' from port to port, a most intriguing idea. But whoever put v those old-style bloomers on the girls must hate women. Reminds the Old Goat of the •v days of 50 years ago when that • was pretty daring stuff and allowed only in segregated gym classes. WONDER WHAT the boys who write those TV commercials will do next year? Everything now is new, advanced, improved. has secret ingredients and all that kind of malarky. How can they improve the t , improved, renew the new, and advance the advanced? When you get right down to it they are pretty silly and appeal must be to those considerably less than the popular 12-year-old mind they are supposed to be aimed at. These boys who write this junk should lay off those four martini lunches. AN EXPERT on the mini skirt in England has insulted American women saying they don't wear the mini skirt because they haven't the legs for it. Frankly the Old Goat considers the English girls pictured in the gazettes as pretty straight up and down. An American responded with the fact (that's what the man said) U. S. girls have much better tapered calves and narrow ankles with those extremities having "as much expression as their hands." The Old Goat is like the average fellow watching a hula dance — to- heck with the hands. And now the Old Goat isn't about to see the expression in a calf (human female garden variety) or their ankles. Not until the skirts get a lot longer anyway. * * * NOTHING SEEMS particularly exciting in the prevues of the new television shows as glimpsed on NBC, CBS or ABC. Most seem to be shoot-em-up westerns, situation comedies which aren't funny, and variety junk. Return of the Garry Moore show is spooked for the Old Goat by Kirby. Looks like he's going to be on it. The Old Goat is goine to miss Perry, Mason. It wasn't a show easily understood and the best thing was to watch it without trying to find whodunit and let Perry get the culprit in the last five minutes. But it was entertaining, and the bad guys always got it and the good guys always prevailed, a most satisfactory if not a customary way in this silly life. * * * MISSING AGAIN will be Mitch Miller and his singalong, a delightful show pleasing to the eye and ear. The reruns this summer were just as entertaining as the first time shown. It's a pity such good entertainment isn't continued. Lone Rockers shook up by town painting Lone Rock — Oh I liked it.

Johnny Comments painting by Frank Miller on the Picture Magazine of the Aug. 21 Des Moines Register, of the town of Lone Rock, made up lots of the conversation as Lone Rockers congregated around the new voting machine used for the first time in the vote on the gas franchise. The. other main topic of conversation was of course the new voting machine. As the judges and clerks tried to explain, the simple to operate yet extremely complicated shiny new instrument, some were curious, some were shy, some asked questions, and some men didn't at all like to have a "woman" explain this new fangled gadgit. All in. all the new gadgit with its 22,000 parts, caused a lot of comment and interest. The curiosity about this new instrument, yet old as Thomas Edison who invented the first voting machine, brought out a good percentage of the town people who were eligible.
