GRASSROOTS GLEANINGS by Bill Stokes More than 500 man-made objects from the United States and Russia are still orbiting the earth, observes The Columbia (Mo.) Missourian. "Everybody likes to play with toys,'" says the Missourian, "but few are willing to help put them away." The Lima (Ohio) News reports that you will soon be able to choose a carpet that will match the color of the dirt around your house. Some sort of a study by the Department of Agriculture is to furnish the carpet makers with the necessary-information. Obviously it will not be long now before you can go to a friend's house and say, "What a beautifully dirty carpet you have." The Semo News, of Lilbourn, Mo., in an outdoor column suggests that anyone hungry for frogs' legs can have same by hunting frogs with a slingshot that uses marbles for ammunition. This sounds like the sort of sport you might like to get the card club involved in should an opportunity present itself. The Bottineau (N.D.) Courant claims to have heard a congressman say, "My constituents want government hand-out They want the government to get its hands out of their pockets, is what they really want.' School days are happy days — if your kids are old enough to go, claims The Pipestone (Minn.) County Star. The Watertown (Wis.) Daily Times speculates that it will not be long before cars have automatic pilots that will guide a vehicle along superhighways in response to special symbols along the road. How, we would ask the Times, is a father of five going to develop enough trust to turn the restroom problem over to the automatic pilot?

The Wayne County Press, Fairfield, DL, reports the second- grader who came home from school and to his mother's inquiry replied that today in school they learned about eagles. "Eagles?" his mother exclaimed. "Yeah," junior said, "you know, two plus two eagles four and three plus two eagles five." A therapist of matrimonial difficulties, according to the Spencer (Iowa) Times, said that the most prevalent cause of marriage problems is a breakdown in communication between partners. And we just don't believe that he was talking about the difficulty of shouting over the sound of a silage chopper or a herd of bawling cows. The Buffalo (S.D.) Times-Herald gets credit for this one. "People are saying that you and your husband are not getting along very well together." "Nonsense, we did have some words and I shot him, but that's as far as it went." The Petersburg (Ind.) Press says it saw this sign in a beauty salon, "Ten years off for cash." Most people who jump at conclusions spend most of their lives up in toe air, says The Ogemaw (Mich.) Herald. "As long as most men can't sew on buttons, iherell always be a place in this world for a good woman," claims the Belvidere (111,) Daily Republican. The thigh bone is the longest of 206 bones in the human body reports the Chronicle-Herald of Macon, Mo. Does anyone have any doubt about which bone is thickest? Clue: It has ear*.
