GRASSROOTS LEAN Bill Stokes The average girl would rather have beauty than brains because the average man can see better than he can think, says The Mason County Democrat of Havana, 111. The Traer (Iowa) Star-Clipper said recently, "Thrift is a wonderful virtue, especially in an ancestor." "The older a man gets, the farther he walked to school when he was a boy," claims The Delavan (Wis.) Enterprise. "It's easy to be happy," advises The Guttenberg (Iowa) Press. "Just forget your troubles as easily as you forget your blessings." Four-fifths of all life on earth exists in salt water, reports The Black Hills Press of Sturgis, S.D. This must, of course, include the hard-working, perspiring farmers. "Married life is just one undarned thing after another," says The West Bend (Wis.) News. Along the same lines, The Weekly Valley Herald of Chaska, Minn., reports that when a man decides to get married, it's sometimes the last big decision he's allowed to make. The Dickinson (N.D.) Press reports reading a magazine article that said the American gray wolf has all but .vanished. "Obviously the author never attended an office party," says The Press. The Algona (Iowa) Upper Des Moines tells about the daughter whose father told her to be home from a date by 11 o'clock. "But dad," she protested, "I'm no longer a child." "I know," said her father. "That's why I want you home by eleven." Automation, says The Democrat-Tribune of Mineral Point, Wis., is man's effort to make work so easy that women can do it all. Most husbands would like to see their wives wear their dresses longer — about three years longer, says The New Richmond (Wis.) News. "Some people sure are funny," mused a fellow visiting The Belvidere (111.) Daily Republican. "I know a guy who hasn't kissed his wife for 10 years, and then when someone else did it, he shot him." An article in The Daily Sentinel of Fairmont, Minn., reports that the average amount of money in circulation per person is $213.79. I'll go along with that 79 cents, but who has my $213? The Chronicle-Herald of Macon, Mo., defines an American as one who gets mad at his wife for not running the home like a motel, and gets mad at a motel for not operating like a home. Many of us spend half our time wishing for things that we could have if we didn't spend half our time wishing, says^The Lewiston (111.) News. "One thing about taking a horse in to be shod," says The Bel- viHere (III.) Daily Republican "was that you didn't have to worry about the blacksmith finding a lot of other things that needed fixing." You are half way through life before you realize it is one of those do-it-yourself deals, says The Marshall (Minn.) Messenger. • • 9 • "As long as we're not interested in it, a question always has two sides," claims The Wayne County Press of Fairfield, 111, The Brookings (S,D.) Register says, "If you want it to be a jhort summer, just sign a 90-day note. • • *) * SAN FRANCISCO Kxeellent location at fumed Fisherman's Wharf, one Mock from cable ears to downtown shopping, entertainment, business.
