Alqono KoMuth County THURSDAY, N0V, 10,i'lMt - ALGONA, IOWA y jV ^br V JUDGING A BEAUTY CONTEST isn't easy. In fact 16 hopefuls all pretty and smartly dressed 'had the Old Goat thoroughly confused. Fortunately the other two judges were women, so all the Old Goat had to do was act interested (no problem) and let the two women fight it out. Women are much more critical of girls than the Old Goat. He would have awarded 16 first prizes, which no doubt would have had the sponsor in a tizzy because he'd have to wood up 16 prizes- At any rate the Old Goat apologises to those who didn't make it, and observes for their benefit that he was out-numbered in the -judging two to one not very good odds. Fortunately the winner wasn't to be declared until the next day but the Old Goat got out of that town in pretty fast jigtime with his conscience hurting a bit. Didnt seem fair to name just one. # * * WELL THE DOGS who specialize in such things have new decided it's OK to talk baby talk to e baby. Used to be the bigdome gents said to talk edult talk so the brats would telk adult when the grew up. The docs didn't say anything •bout baby talking to a babe. Fellow could get into trouble thet, way, so he could. * '. * * ICKY-POO is going to get married. Icky-poo is a gorgeous creature but When the Old Goat started calling her that she was a giggling long-legged little girl with a grin full 6f holes where teeth had been. She used to pass the office on foot and fired back at the Old Goat whenever he called her Icky-poo Kinda makes the Old Goat sad in a way to see these little girls grow up, but as the song says they grow up in such an inter esting way. Now instead of walk ing past the'office She sails'past in a car and the grin now shows perfect teeth- But there's still thai twinkle of the eyes of the little girl of some years ago. The Old Goat is going to miss both of them. _ • -x- * * ANDY WILLIAMS is weaning the Old Goat away from the Funny camera and what's my line shows. Andy: has a new format for his show and it's . a dilly this year so far. Andy somehow got the message he was over-exposing himself and now he lets the guests do their stuff without horning in too much. And his show has some good dance numbers and everyone acts like they're having fun. It's a better show than he had last year and while he still drags Wall Lake in occasionally he's gone a long way since he left that Iowa town. THE OLD GOAT can't report on the Danny Kaye show. He passes it up. Danny hogs the spotlight and has so many skits with him dressed up supposedly funny that the Old Goat has had it as far as he is concerned. Gar ry Moore is slipping again after having a good show or two but maybe Carol Burnett as a gues this week can give it some oj its former zip. The show made Carol a star, but by the same token she made the show- The Old Goat watches Ed Sullivan with the sound turned off until something good comes on— about once a show. That's the best way to watch thoise female yelpers who .slink around and moan off key. None of those featured dames can sing worth sour apples. * * «f THANK HEAVENS politics is •over for a couple of years. Some of the TV commercials were pretty stupid. Heading that list was the one of Bobby Kennedy giving a pitch for some local candidate in Minnesota with the candidate standing there grin, ning like a mule eating cactus. Then there was the guy who had taken grade school declamatory and made with the gestures in making his pitch. Yuccck. Television can be pretty cruel to candidate who doesn't have what television takes. W.ell, anyway, some of the same old shows cw television will have a new look —for a while at least.
