»•*•••§•*»•««•*••»•••••• D. E. D. •••••••••••••••••••••A** SOME DAY when you're foci- ing sorry for yourself you can blame your troubles on your ancestors, who you can say arc really to blame for yon. But there's quite a group of them if you start figuring a bit. For instance there arc two parents, four grandparents, 8 great- grandparents, and so on. In fact in only 10 generations you have had 1796 ancestors. No doubt they arc a most notable crew, but in that number of people there are sure to be some odd balls which may account for your odd moments. At least you can blame it on them. And of course the men can always take great comfort in the fact that half of them were women on whom they can blame their foibles. Well, it's an interesting thought to go back to Adam and Eve — the pair that, started the whole mess, and how they got to your 1796 ancestors is quite a bit of doing. * -x- # THE EASTER season is also the silly season for a crop of younguns who go to Fort Lauderdale and otner tropic watering places to have a fling. The problem always is they have no restraint and instead of a fling have a flung right into the hoosegow. How this fad got started is a mystery, but it is highly probable that some sons and daughters supposed to be staying with a classmate somewhere in a sedate home are kicking up their heels on the benches. It's doubtful however any mental giants will come out of the crowd. . * * * THE POSTOFFICE depart- * ( .

Nothing is more irritating than to get a nandful of mail and look through to find a letter and find nothing but a lot of junk stuff of interest only to the stupe who sent it. Ana along with that same deal is the habit of magazines with cards stapled in tnat won't bend and flip your page before you're reauy. Tne Old Goat has a practice of going through a magazine once and tearing out all that stutf and giving it the heave-ho into the basket without reading. * * * GOODNESS GRACIOUS I What in the world are the girls thinking about when they buy perfume? A casual glance at a counter showed such names as Ambush, My Sin, Intimate, Scandal, Love Pat, Tabu. It's enough to make a man blush. And what is a young fellow to think when his date shows up wearing Ambush?! Or maybe Intimate?! Well, anyway they didn't label it OUR Sin. # # * MAYBE THEME songs on the TV are great things, but the constant repetition is odious Most obnoxious of the bunch is the Cara Williams theme music sung with her name by what sounds like a sixth grade chorus. Another in the same class is the Candid Camera atrocity. And the introduction of Ed Sullivan as being LiyE leaves something to be desired. The same is true of the cigaret ditties which at first seemed pretty but now grind on the nerves until a person wants to scream. Phooey to the whole kit and ka- boodle. •W W 7f WITH SPRING around the corner <it's still April) and all the spring bugs about to come out it is a scientific note that there are 2500 kinds of ants. That's besides the pants kind. That probably however includes the kind the grasshopper got a bum deal from last fall when the cold came. The big problem seems to be a lack of anteaters. vr vr * SOMETHING'S wrong! Elvis Presley, the first of the hip swingers, demands $125,000 for a personal appearance on a TV program.
