I ..... ono Kofiuth County THURSDAY, NOV. 24,1*M — AL60NA, IOWA Silver- Anniversary THIS IS THE season for the Old Goat to practice up on his Scroogmg witn the baah and humbug routine. And it's also the season for Thanksgiving Maybe the Old Goat should be a bit thankful all his sins haven't caught up with him yet, but hav ing been around for quite a time will be sure trouble will seek out eventually. Anyway the baah and humbug gets a good reaction from the loilypop Set and in eluding some a long way pas the time when they had visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. What brings out the baah and humbug now is the anticipation of the continuous playing of Christmas songs on radio, TV, in stores, and everywhere. The Old Goat particularly detests that 12 days of Christmas deal. There ought to be a law prohibiting the playing of those songs prior to Christmas Eve. * * * THE OLD GOAT shook hands one day lest week with one of those knuckle buster fellows, the kind who think it proper to grind your knuckles into dust with that he-man grip, steady eye and out doors air. Phooey! By the time the Old Goat got his knuckles unmeshed the guy was gone,, probably off busting someone .else's hand. The Old Goat, being built close to the ground learned early in life to keep his resentment to himself or get clobbered. But there is a great big urge to stomp down on the guy's instep or kick him a good one in the shins. If the Old Goat could run fast enough he might just do that too. # # # MR. AND MRS. Eugene Minard, Algona, will have their silver wedding Sunday, Nov. 27, with open house at their home from 2'to 4 p.m. Friends ana relatives are invited. Their cmfaren, Mrs. Don Minard, Mrs, Larry Reefer, George and Janette, will be hosts. Another daughter, Mrs. Don Grant, of North Carolina, was not able to attend. ' , be quite a bit of doctors.ap- . proving all these pills and stuff, in fact how the docs get time to do the doctoring is a mystery with them so busy endorsing all these little goodies. The commercials certainly boost the product, being enough to give anyone a headache just to have to listen and watch' that drivel. The one showing the women about to knock her brats about seems most natural until she takes a couple of pills and becomes all sweetness and lightl Better she should knock the heads together of the brats to lighten her load. * * . # HOLY COW! , . Now no slang or nice-naughty comment. It's what the Hindus think of their Jcowsv^ey-libiin^^ sacred and wouldn't hurt a hair of a cow's body. Last week- the Hindus got all' upset over some talk and a bunch of naked men staged a march on the India capital to protest whatever it was The naked gents were rated as holy men but cleanliness is no part of their religion, in fact quite the opposite. Now if these topless dressed waitresses being pestered by the gendarmes be cause they aren't covered up would only call T themselves a new religion they might have a chance to parade. Of course there's a difference from the India men. The girls wouldn' even have to bring a cow. # * * • . SEEMS EVERY patent medicine comes out with the TV pitch that "doctors prescribe most" their product. Seems to HIGH BUTTON SHOES by the Garry Moore outfit the other night was a welcome relief Instead of the normal dreary guests the show was lively and had some, good dancing and entertainment with no plot to wOr- y about. And here's a good way o. watch the What's My Line show. Shut your eyes when, the dentity of the contestant's 'line' s shown so you have to guess along with- the panel. Only trouble with it is you look pretty stupid-—but do it quietly so no one.-catches^on. , - ' * THAT YOUNG FELLOW George Hamilton certainly gets around. He's beeing squiredng Lynda Bird for some time 'having the sob sisters all gaga, but in the papers Monday he showed up instead with a real Princess Barbara of Liechtenstein, as hei escort. That princess looks like a real dish! Maybe we'll get into a war with Liechtenstein -over this romancing .business. Isn' there a drinking song abou Liechtenstein?
