She has some dimes from the local scene, but how -can anyone pass them on? People blessed with such names might not think It's funny. If one were compiling famous local anecdotes, there are a few that'll pass;, for example, on the subject of speechmaking: There was once a political campaigner who stumped the county on behalf of himself during one hot pre-election race. He was noted for his attempt 'to gain control of the English language and a high point in these efforts came during the course of one speech where he worked himself tip to the peak of his oration. At this point ho dramatically paused and then at I mating of the Oty ,-, a cltliln Waa granted the f i«ftr in a hot argument ovtf Mm* ls«i« (now forgotten) and he ex* tiMi^t <li <iiiw ak^atJiati^-,* ** * -3*- - A. ilLdkM™*. pressou profound disffust bwav h* walMlwoiWSd w"th* mittu.

One of hi* prdjectt was speechmaklng. He spoke often and had a speech *£aiij? fot almost every occasion. Oh* 'of 'hl» most remarkable speeches was on the 'subject of success—and it Included this immortal thought: "This la one thing we can always say is true about success—it keeps gofitg forward!" One speeehmaker, whose problem wasn't making speeches, appeared at a dinner meeting with his wife. To make a joke, and referring to his better half, he ebw» mentedr "When we were martini her father dropped in oh the wedding. He must've been on a hunting trip because he brought his shotgun along," (The speaker's wife was furious). Perhaps the funniest of all ln» cidents involving speeches was at a political rally a few years ago, where the speaker (a Republican) was extolling the qualities of Abraham Lincoln. From the rear came-a terrific hissing, and the speaker paused in a rage. "Who's doing that hissing?" he roared. No one answered. It was gas escaping from a keg of. beer in the, back of the room.
