D. •••e.O••••••••••••••••••• :HEY NOW! — Princess Margaret -shocked staid old England by appearing in public in black stockings .decorated with beetles all over them. Had the newspapers over there editorially commenting! The Old Goat nearly flipped his wig until he^ realized the "beetles" are bugs and not spelled like the "Beatles" of yammering fame. Even bug, beetles are bad enough though. Margaret is not one to take a back seat in the flash department even .though her sister is the, queen/ PROBABLY THE bost all- around show of the year is the girls basketball tournament, and it doesn't matter to watchers too much which team wins. These girls, play for keeps and woe be the boy who tries to tangle with them. It renews faith in youth just to see them scramble, and hold their hand high when tagged with a foul. And the Old Goat gets a bit damp-eyed when they all cry whether they win or lose, and waste a lot of hugging on other girls. THESE EXERCISE deals in. the paper are not meant for the likes of anyone as far as the Old Goat can tell. They always have some slim Jane who doesn't need it doing the exercise with ease. The Old Goat is tempted once in a while to try one, like the one Sunday: "Stand erect with feet comfortably separated. Raise arms sideways to shoulder height, Bend to left and touch fingers of left hand to left toe. Keep knees straight." The Old Goat isn't too smart but he was smart enough not to go any farther than "stand erect with feet comfortably separated,' Since the Old Goat has added a few unnecessary pounds he hasn't seen his left or right toes for some time, and isn't too much interested in getting acquainted again—at least not in that manner. DOWN AT DRAKE they are teaching girls how to play pool I Thty tvtn got a college credit for some kind of itl Back too many years ago the associates of the Old Goat could hive easily rated a straight'A in such a sport. However because of some narrow minded people locally it we* necessary for the boys to go to Irvington, Weslty or Whitttmort to play, If it • sign of the times they are now actually teaching girls how to play? Where are today's boys to fo to get away from girls? FRENCHMAN ARE alarmed because this country is discoujv aging tourists, and tourists who tour Europe are by-passing De. Gaulle's Paris in favor of other spots. It's about time. Paris is Jjighly over-rated according to those who went there, and the French are grabby and insulting to tourists generally, they want only our money—to beck with anything in reiura. besides the;naughty shows are paled by shows at Las.yegas and other hoi spots m this country. DeGaulle is helping with that "Yankee stay home" attitude by his delusions of superiority of the" French 'over anyone. SHADES OF JACK and the beanstalk. KGLO-TV is about to erect-..a': tower that goes 1,529 ;eet straight up. On the ground that would be about five blocks ong, and;good walk let alone climbing up that high. But that's small compared with the one at ji'argo, N. D;, which goes up 2,063 feet. If the Old Goat climbed one he'd be afraid of meet- ng a giant Who wasn't the Jolly Green one. . GETTING PAST St. Patrick's day is always a trial for those not of the emerald isle. Most scahdahoovians like the . Old Goat admire and sometimes even, enyy the Irish. The Old Goat has some Irish in the background, but it's all messed up with 1 French', German, English, etc. The Old .Goat's ancestry is as confused as possible to get. But on. St. Pat's day everyone is Irish—well, just a little bit anyway. ...

The discount for badly stained or materially weathered No. 4 oats is 7 cents per bushel; on the factor of test weight, it is 3 cents per bushel. The discount for garlicky oats is 3 cents per bushel.
