MONDAY, MAY 9, WJ I-ALOONA (l«wi) ABVANCt AIM STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHIUII "Twid KM** I* tall Three "gypsies" ONE OF MY ciders has often told me that one ot the advantages of growing old is that you can speak your mind Without having everyone say you arc outspoken, a "know-it- all" or just plain cynical . . . certainly no one makes this statement truer than ex-president Harry Truman . . . although his step is not as lively and the spring is gone from his gait, his salty comments about current affairs arc still the same. OVERHEARD WHILE our 9-yoar old ton David and 6-year old daughter Sara were playing the other night: "Aw Sara, the Indians just don't ever win!" * * A LOCAL COLOR TV fan has repeatedly written to Ed Brcen, owner of Fort Dodge station KQTV about the poor quality of color transmitted by the station. And in his most recent reply, Ed was equal to the occasion ... he advised his correspondent that there are many fine black and white sets on the market today and why didn't he go down and trade his color set in on one! * * % ALL THE WONDERFUL things said about the movie "My Fair Lady" are certainly true ... it is probably the best musical ever made and if you have an opportunity to see it in Minneapolis or DCS Moines, don't pass it up ... I'd still rate "How the West Was Won" as better but it is dilfi- cult to compare two movies of this type. jV J> *i> MANY BASEMENTS flooded along the Mississippi river were done so purposely ... we are told that when the flood waters appeared imminent, homeowners flooded their own basements with garden hoses — for two reasons . . . to keep the basement walls from collapsing from outside pressure and to (ill their basements with comparatively clean water, rather than the muddy and debris-ridaen river water. THE NEW MODERN post office has lost at least one customer. Bill Geering, who has had the same box at the present post office for 45 years — since 1920 — has cancelled his box and will now have home deliveryl * * * HERE'S WHAT store managers from one of America's largest chain stores were told at a recent midwest meeting . . . when both Negro and white persons apply for the same job, always select the Negro for the position providing the qualifications of both are the same ana there are a sufficient number of colored people in the trade area to warrant hiring a Negro!

We once knew a little girl who determined she'd give her mommy a scrumptious gift; she learned a poem! THEN there were the three married daughters who arrived at Mother's bright ami early on Her Day and cleaned the house from top to bottom. One of, them even darned Dad's socks. A busy executive found he wasn't too busy to write his mother a ten-page letter, telling her everything he'd been doing. A teen-age youngster swept out the garage, cut the grass, put up the screens and finished in • blase of glory by making his own room ship-shape, ANOTHER family took Mother on a picnic and for once they let her pick out the spot at which she wanted to stop. JOHN flew home for a visit, Mary called from California, And these were the best pros, ents ever, All of which proves you don't have to deal with us to celebrate Mother's Day; you have to d**l with yourself. Of course, if you're topping things off with • mysterious* gift* wrapped box, we're more than proud to be represented, But we «in't sell you the most precious thing in the world to your Mother — your time «. your thought* TO yourself! §F QUALITY SINCE H7Q"
