THERE'RE TIMES when it dbbsn't pay to got up. The Old Goat accompanied the other Half of his split personality to Ibwa City for a weekend of con- ffifences of the Mid-America Assembly consisting of high(flowed iolks from four states. When the time came to leave Sunday the car wouldn't start! It was heck getting men to look' It the blasted thing on Sunday. After one had failed, another came and pushed it to a garage ibr an intensive' look-see into the myoterious innerds. After an hour the car was started and me Old Goat went back for his Suitcases. Some knuckle-headed cab driver had picked his suitcase of dirty dainties and sundry items and taken it to Cedar Rapids with people to' take a plane! By the time the cabbie had returned it was 5 o'clock, the highways were icying, and patrolmen rather pointedly said to keep off the roads till morn- itog. Which the Old Goat did. Phooey! # * # IF THE OLD GOAT knaw a woman like tht on* in * the pussycat commercial ha'd taka a ball bat to her. This faa- turas a dama giving baby lova td a dangad cat whil* fooding tha monstar soma'of what tha makers call goodies for pus- sVcats. Tha clincher is tha dfcm* murmuring' to the cat '.'Now do you believe I lova you?" On second thought, tha Old Goat might kick her, providing of course she waa smaller than the Old Goat. Frankly the cat looked bored at all get out. # # # THE LEGISLATURE is stupid about one thing anyway. Why in the name oi common ;senst can't they have auto license* cOme due in the > sununej months? Why is it necessary to try to unscrew the old one with mittens on and it's colder than heck with the breezes blowing tip your pant leg? The danged Screws are usually rusted in, and the plates are covered with jgbop and snow. Phooey! # # # A BUNCH OF DAMES'wan tish-tishing about the picture of Jackie Kennedy in tha tjazattas the other day wear ing a short skirt and show ing the knees, and as the sent says, a little bit more, Frank* ly the Old Goat thinks the* were just jealous, howjv'jr, the Old Goat couldn't be sure because their skirts hid anything, and probably a gooo thing at that. The Old Goat law some short ones at the University but, the majority still were at knee length, Frankly Jackie can wear them if she wants, After all she has been also pictured in a bathing suit—not bad either for a set of old eyes. # * # ALSO SEEN AT the university were some of the beatnik variety with baards on the boys and the girls looked unkept as a drowned cat. Only a few of the latter and not too many of the bearded variety. It was helpful in telling them apart to have the bsard but after looking them over the Old Goat wondered Who cared which they were. Those with the beards looked a bit like they were a little fearful they weren't mature men yet and had to grow a beard to sstisfy some inner doubt. # * * SEEN ON THE WOMAN'S page in Monday's Demon Register was this little >gem: "When brushing py hair it is much less tiring if I lie on the bed and Jiang my head over the edge." Now if the Old Goat had any hair he might try it. On second thought why not put the head o.i the bed, thro,y the brush away, and take a little nap. That would ba less tiring wouldn't it? # # * THAT FELLOW who threw a party (and also the society drones into a dither) had more money than sense to ca,use such an uproar. The Old Goat suspects he had an ulterior motive in studying the antics of the monkey suit and fancy dress set. If 'that was his idea he can write another book with that NIW* OP ALOONA I I • BY MOLLY MaeDONALD-W3-70fO— Local News I I I I Sorensens plan 40th >vedding MR. AND MRS.
