•••••••••••*»••••••••••• THURSDAY, JUN6 17, Doles car wins at Centennial THE OLD GOAT gets a big kick out of it when a robin or a blackbird takes out after a squirrel. The birds give the squirrel a pretty bad time dive- bombing htm even in the trees. The squirrel really makes tracks and gets the heck out of there. Seems when the squirrel gets close to the birds' nest one or the other bird starts a squawking and the other part of the pair comes fast. It looks like the birds aim at the animal's eyes and he doesn't like any part of it. It's a bit of backyard drama. Often four to six blackbirds will gang up on a squirrel —or even a dog ambling along. One bird,will fly ahead of the animal to get attention while another will larrup the squirrel or dog on the rump. A COUPLE OF older gents were bemoaning the way the kids dress these days, particularly those boys Who affect the long hair. On TV Sunday a yelper had his long hair curled like a girl's in back and he certainly looked silly, and besides he couldn't sing for sour apples—just jerked around and yelped like he had ants you know where. Anyway these two old gents were giving them heck that they couldn't tell one from another. The Old Goat observes the 'young folks seem to be able to tell and it's none of these old geezers' business anyway. They probably irritated their older generation too. So there! WATCHING TELEVISION baseball games can be a riot— if the sound of the yacking announcers is turned off. These boys in the baggy bloomers look pretty silly romping around, twitching, waving a bat, pawing the ground, and knocking dirt out of their cleats when there isn't any there. If the daily papers would quit ballyhooing the game it'd die a fast death. To one not sports minded the story of the antics of the game is pretty dull reading. But turn the sound down if you watch— it's much better that way. BUT ONE SPORTS writer the other day came up with one that pleased the Old Goat when he took after Dotty. He said of writing by columnists such as her that "It's the kind of story Dorothy Killgallen can sink her nails into." The Old Goat's papers do not carry that coast-to-coast so-called column, hence whether the guy is right is questionable though it's his opinion. Anyway the description of sinking nails sounds gory enough for the Old Goat, Color the nails red. WHAT'S WITH this campaign against horror stuff on TV and the so-called comics? Shucks some of these people in their youth had horror stuff too and it didn't do them much harm and little good either. Remember Jack the Giant Killer, and the Queen in Alice in Wonderland who- yelped off with their Heads at every opportunity?! And how about . those gallant gents who rode out to slay fire- spitting dragons before sundown to please a shrinking female? MISS ARIZONA got kicked out of the Miss America contest because she was also in a rival outfit, the Miss U. S. A, Seems these promoters can't stand having girls who acknowledge the other contest even exists, A» far as the Old Goat if concerned they can stop the whole filly business. What right ha* • panel to name the b«*t of the lot? Shucks the judges art even more stupid thin the Old Goat who'd givt first prize to every damsel who imiled »t him whether she meant it or not. Tht Old Goi! if will •ware they can't mem it in hif we but he'd give A for effort, Of course the Old Goat will never be a fepiMty judge, He just likes ill firli who ire equally bfiytifyl-^*t Itlft to tome one. to the Fenton elevator to install a 1500-bushel an hour grain drier, and to remodel a flat storage building.

The action stemmed from the warning to the town last week by the county sheriff's office, when a tornado was sighted headed toward Fenton. No signal had been set aside for tornado warning, and the town marshal was unable to notify all residents of Fenton. A building permit was issued "IT PQIS SOMETHING to a woman" is the silliest come-on for a male after shave or some kind of lotion. Phooey!
