14-Algona. (la.) Upper Des Moines Thurtday, June 3, 1965 To really appreciate them, people should go they've been married ten years. Right now I wait to get home and hang the curtains in our apart- NOW THAT IT HAS BEEN so vividly demonstrated that more than one person can occupy a space ship, it may not be too long before inter-planetary travel is hero. Soon there will be a rocket (or every pocket ami there'll I* puided tours of the Universe with selected stops at Venus, Jupiter ajid Mars. For newlyweds, the word, "honeymoon" may lake on a literal meaning for they'll lie able to go to the moon for their wedding trip. Couples from other planets may come here on their honeyearth. - o GEORGE AND MABEL ASTHONOID OF Saturn could land their rocket on the space strip at the local airport. They've just been married and they are shooting their entire savings of 200 zularians (about $3,142) on an out-of-that Saturn trip for their honey-earth. George gets out of the. space-ship and wipes the "Watch Saturn Grow" signs from the trunk. His prankster friends put them there after the wedding and this is the first chance George has to clean them off. "GEE, GEORGE", MABEL WHISPERS as he carries her over the threshold to their room at the rocotel. "Do you love me as much as you did Uie day we found out the notches on our IBM cards matched?" George and Mabel belong to the upper Alpha class on Saturn, and thus are among the few selected by the Master Machine to marry and rear children. The Xi and Zeta classes, who do all the work there, hatch out their offspring only by test tube. "Wow," George says, "Just being alone with you makes me feel so way-out, I don't even think I'll take my stepped-up ration of Soma!" Soma is the Saturn vitamin that keeps the Alpha, or intellectual class from feeling any pain or sadness. It also makes them more amenable to the plans of the Master Machine. "I must say", replied Mabel, "that I do think you overdid the Soma punch at our wedding reception, but if you are going to cut your ration so am I." - o A SHORT TIME LATER, GEORGE AND Mabel take the blastoff attachments from their rocket and put the wheels on so they can drive around Earth to absorb some local color and look at the natives. "It doesn't look nearly so romantic as it does back home", sighs Mabel. "Not a bit like the time we watched Earth rise over Antenaeball Stadium or like In the song, "Earthlight and Roses". - o GEORGE IS NOT ACCUSTOMED TO steering his rocket. At home on Saturn, all vehicles are controlled by Central Radar and you merely sit in them and ride. He gets so interested In looking at a native - a young blonde, female - that he nearly crashes into a lamp post. Mabel has little trouble reverting; to a back-seat driver. "George I", she screams, "Be careful I Do you want to be arrested for driving while failing to be under the influence of Soma?" - o "I CAN DRIVE JUST AS GOOD SOBER as I can after I've had a few", insists George. "Besides, these natives are blamed interesting. They are in a natural state like the people were on Saturn before the Master Machine decided to replace some of their less functional parts with plastic ones." Mabel, whose tonsils, appendix and mammary glands have long-since been replaced by tubes, takes this remark from her bridegroom as a personal insult. She says, "If you are going to be profane and criticize the works of the Master Machine, I'll hop the next rocket out of here and go home to Mother 1" - o "MOTHER I, MOTHER I, MOTHER I" GEORGE sneers. Doesn't she realize she is an anachronism ? Doesn't she know nobody keeps her maternal instincts after her child-bearing years are over ? Next thing you know, she'll be advocating home-cooking instead of decent self-respecting meals in a pill 1 - o - "I'M SORRY, GEORGE", MABEL apologizes. "I guess the fact that I'm finally Mrs. George Astronoid Is so new to me, and this funny, quaint Earth is so strange that I'm getting a little unbalanced. Anyway, I'm beginning to think honeyearths CHAMPION BLUCHER OXFORD These favorite playtimers are made to take the beating of healthy, active young feet.

IOWA are overrated, on them a/ter can hardly ment." GEORGE GIVES OUT WITH A gigantic sneeze. "Oh, George", Mabel says tenderly, "You are coming down with a cold! Let's get back to the rocotel and I'll fix you a nice, hot bath and a drink of Soma. 1 don't want to seem sacrilegious about the great Master Machine, but I do wish that since he has done so much to entirely eliminate polio, cancer, tuberculosis and heart disease, he could finally do something about getting rid of the only illness we have left - the common cold!" - o - DURING THE WEEK OF May 30 through June 5, birthdays include Edith Welter, James L.
