How come yah quit writin' the Jumbo's Jumbles every week? When yah goin' to start again, etc., and so on into the late part of the dark, dark night. The truth of the matter is, besides getting dizzy from answering questions and dizzier from all our extra curricular activities this past summer, we suddenly found, much to our dismayed dismay, our advertising for "The Great Little Store" was 'way above our budget. (Editor Bill, are you listening?) We've spent' so much for advertising for the year of 1947 that I can all ready feel the tax "revenooer's" giving "yours truly" the third degree about mid 1948, doubting this here elephant lover's advertising budget for '47. The somewhat 'round about complimentary payoff came this past week, when much to our elated surprise, a committee of dejected Postville Herald readers from Clermont called on., .old man "Jumbo", the peanut merchant, and poured the pressure on with such red-headed woodpecker intensity that we weakened, and as they stated in no uncertain, unlimited terms: (sounded like Molotov, "The Mad Russian", in an international crap game with Bevin and Marshall) that they subscribed to the World's Greatest 8- Page Newspaper to read "Jumbo's Jumbles" exclusively . . . and with "corn" s almost $3 a bushel to date— we at this Christmas holiday season decided to not disappoint anybody. So we're back again to do our utmost best for those who like us— and to those who don't—Merry Christmas anyway—you can go read Editor Bill's column and the Want Ads. Merry .Christmas Laying all kidding aside, gang, it has been a really great 1947 in many, many ways, and any individual or group who can't possibly wish his fellowmen a Merry Christmas in this great United States of ours almost every day of the year, should be deported to Russia's Siberian Salt Mines to count salt grains and THINK. . . . And while we are talking about THINKING — and to prove outpoint—just suppose you lived in, say almost any part of the rest of the world, and being used to less than nothing every day of your life could suddenly take a magic flying carpet and leap into the average American's daily way of life. That's right—to you that would be like Christmas every day . . . and in addition to that which is very ordinary .to us Americans who are used to it, and expect it, we take December 25th,as just another day every year and outdo ourselves in making it bigger and better in a way that only we free people know how. Yes, it's Christmas every day in these United States. EVERY DAY AND DON'T FORGET IT! Merry Christmas So, in behalf of The Postville Amusement Company, The Postville Pirates, pennant winners of the Scenic Iowa League this past summer, The Great Little Store, Jarmes Brothers 3 Ring Circus, and this Jumbo's Jumbles column, we all wish you all— A REAL AMERICAN CHRISTMAS AND A GREAT BIG JUMBO YEAR IN 1948 —Glenn Jason "Jumbo" Jarmes. A'MERRY* CH RI5TMAS WE KNOW OF NO BETTER TIME THAN CHRISTMAS TO GIVE RECOGNITION TO OUR MANY FRIENDS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED SO GREATLY TO OUR SUCCESS DURING THE PAST YEAR.
