The April Fool's day prankster is no respecter of age or dignity Older folks will send gullible am eager-to-serve children to th( blacksmith's shop for a bucket oi cold steam or to the hardware store for a sawdust pump and a left- handed monkey wrench, and the Indignant little victims will probably get right back at their tormentor's with a "Kick Me" sign on the coat tails or a faked not from a sweetheart Historians tell us that this sort of tomfoolery has been going on for centuries. When it originated they do not know, but it is practiced all over the world.
