•eteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* D. t. D. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee THE OLD GOAT was all Shook up the other night when the big blizzard was .raging. The snow was coming down fast, the wind was blowing, and it was a dilly of a blizzard—almost as bad as those the old-timers love to brag about. The doorbell rang, and the Old Goat wondered what kind of a nut was out in that storm, and hazarded a guess some poor soul was in trouble and wanted help. Nope! At the door were two teenaged girls, dressed f6r the storm, eyes twinkling more than the snow, red cheeked, and glorying in braving the elements. They brought the copy for the Bulldog Tales. They made the Old Goat feel mighty old, so they did. But they also gave a glow that despite all the calamity howlers pur teenagers are pretty good kids—and pretty too! HEY HEYI MEN AND BOYS! Well, men anyway. The august state supreme court has come out with the decision that nagging is grounds for divorce on the theory that little drops of water falling on the same place eventually wear away the stone. Now the right to nagging is contained in the wedding ceremony as far as the wife is concerned, but heretofore no bounds have been set. What amount was not stated by the dignified court, but in that one case anyway the court said the woman wore away her. stone. Man being the just'barely civilized animal he is does not take kindly to harness, and probably needs a bit of nagging. But, by golly, by virtue of the supreme court, there is a limit!

II, W5 - ALGONA, IOWA - vance Attendance record at 9th annual Algona picnic in RINGO GOT MARRIED! .That is- some information^;purveyed with pictures in the daily press. After looking the situation over the Old Goat is wondering which one was the bride? Couldn't tell from the hair-do. Ringo is the guy who beat the drums for the Beatles, one of the revolting combo deals which afflict the young these days. They sing through their noses, and wiggle like they got ants in their pants, and the girls scream and faint. It takes all kinds to make a world, but enough is a great plenty as far as the Beatles are concerned and their ilk too. IT ISN'T KINDNESS for the popular stars of today to give guest performances to some of the old-timers. The result usually is a bit sad. And it is really pathetic to see them try to do what they once did with ease. A case in point is Judy Garland who was a guest the other night on a show, trying to sing like the youngsters do. She didn't make it. And Jimmy Durante, one of the real old-time greats, was so pathetic in begging for applause, which was given, not so much for his act as it was for his age and the entertainer he once was. SOMETIMES the "personal" column yields interesting items, but normally it is filled with come-on bait. However Sunday there were a couple of intriguing items: "Virginia, be my valentine. Larry", said one, and the other was: "Pear Mabel—I love you. Will you be my valentine? Charlie." Now all the Virginias and Mabels in the Big City in Iowa will be checking to see whether they know a Larry or a Charlie. And if they are mar^ ried so maybe will their husbands who are not named Larry or Charlie. Anyway putting that stuff in the paper always leads to a suspicion all is not as it seems, or there are a couple of either unbelievably shy fellows, or there is a bit of hanky panky, or some joker is messing up the works.
