••*•••••••••••§•§••••••• DIG THOSE CRAZY hose the girls are wearing these days! They make the legs look goofy but maybe that's the idea—to call attention to them. However some of these are a bit,hard on the eyes with repeated patterns which are disconcerting to say the least. Way back in the dark ages when the Old Goat was a boy the fancy girls on the stage used to wear decorated stockings so the big boys used to report. Of course that was the day when no woman would admit having, legs, and skirts brushed the ground.

This year fun tilght will be for eighth grade 4-H'ers and below. The county 4-H officers and a fun night committee have redesigned the event to appeal to the younger 4-H'ers.

Somewhere that boy doesn't get around, so he doesn't. It takes 20 minutes just to cuss Fenton out the character who de- ter. signed the blamed thing before deciding whether' your first name should go last or first and what is your wife's middle name anyway? Maybe this fellow could do his in 20 minutes, but if the ordinary garden variety of citizen did it in that time he'd end up in Leavenworth or some other place. Most of the cussing on taxes does not concern the amount—it concerns the agony of trying to be •/ honest, fair and correct. And for a fellow who does it once a year it is agony for 20 hours at least!

The OLD GOAT takes a dim view of Candid Camera-and its >. profiting by making fools of people for others to laugh at. .The self-satisfaction of the two characters who do the introducing is particularly obnoxious! They make money by putting nice people in sad situations and then laughing at them trying to be decent against overwhelming odds. And they even use kids in their antics. To the Old Goat it isn't a nice way to make a living. But it takes all kinds. THE PAPER that depends on Iowa in his female page the other day came out with a headline "Even your knees can be beautiful". This begs the question that maybe they're not beautiful. Phooey, they're just as beautiful as that other hinge, the elbow, and there's no great shakes about beautifying an *lb*w. Knees are made to bond. Without them a girl would walk mighty funny like. So what's with this idea of they CAN be beautiful? As far as the Old Goat is concerned he's never seen a homely on*.
