An Idle Mind N EWARK, N.J., must be quite a town. ':-, A friend had. occasion to go there recently on v business. He had bought an English car on a trip overseas and it was ~ : fceing a*elivefe3 F6~Newark. Having; spent almost all of his money on the European & trip and the-car; he took a bus ' to the East Coast to pick it up. He arrived at his destination at 4 a.m. At that time in the morning the bus station, like any typical, red- blooded American bus sta- ' tion in a big city,'was popu- Dialed mainly by hookers, pimps, homosexuals, lesbians and thugs. Ignoring his surroundings as best he could, he approached a cab_ driver who _was standing in the waiting room and asked the hack to take him to the docks. "Okay," the cabbie said, "but you'd better not walk around with_ that camera, case you're carrying." (In point of fact, the friend was carrying a ..change of clothes in the camera case, but it looked as . though he were carrying an ; expensive camera.) "Why shouldn't I walk —around-with-a-camera case?" the friend asked. "Because you'll get rolled, that's why. Check the camera case." "I won't get rolled," the friend said. "Just take me to the docks." "Look, Buddy," said the cab driver. "I'm telling^_you—^.check the camera case. This ain't New York, you know." : That did it: The friend checked the camera case. • * * * I WAS pondering the significance 'of- anti • cigarette ; champion Tony Curtis getting : picked up for. illegal possession of marijuana the Bother day ' when I received a phone call ' from a Mason City reader. "Do you know what Tony Curtis getting busted on a grass rap means?" he asked. "No;" I said. "It means that even people who are dumb enough to use pot are smart enough to give up cigarettes." Let that be the thought for the day. "~ RUMOR OF THE WEEK That 13-point recovery of the stock market following Rich• ard (The President) Nixon's expression of faith in the qcon- omy would have bean even greater but word got out that Spiro Agnew agreed with everything the President said. * * * • rpHE best crack concerning JL the stock market slump was delivered- by an anonymous broker, reported in The Wall Street Journal: "It isn't 1970 anymore," he said. "It's 1928 and seven- eighths." * * * A N INTERN at a Des Moines hospital received an unsolicited letter — a form letter — from Calvary, Ga. "We notice through the Medical Assn. of Ga. that you are available for general practice. "The Calvary Lion's club aftd community have built and • equipped a medical clinic ready for service, if you are Interested please contact Leonard Maxwell or Joe McNair Calvary Ga. as we would like to have a doctor using these facilities soon." Along with the letter was a sheet enumerating the advantages of Calvary, among them: ".The community is above average morally and economically." A floor plan of the clinic was also included. Room 1 was listed as the "colored treatmeut room"; room 3 as the "white treatment room"; room 5, "colored waiting room"; room 13, "white waiting room"; room 7, "colored recovery room"; room 6,. "white recovery room"; room 12, "colored bath"; room 10B, "white balk." The doctor reports: "I have decided to ply my trade right here in Des Moines." It's either that or find a Georgia -town that's below average, morally. — Donald Kqul n penaoiuat N.
