GRASSROOTS GLEANINGS The Tri-County Truth, Churubusco, Ind., reports that mealtimes should be reserved for eating, not for entertainment or airing family problems. What happens in those families where the.problem is an entertaining eater, like one who juggles meat balls? "A fellow is only young once," says The Review of Plymouth, Wis.," and after that he has to figure out some other excuse." The Daily Reporter, Spencer, Iowa, has a reminder for those of us who tend to get carried away with summer eating. It seems that since your muscles are required to produce less heat in warm weather you do not have to take in so many calories. Does anyone feel a chill? The average woman has a smaller stock of words than the ordinary man, but the turnover is greater," says The Osceola County Herald, Reed City, Mich, The Columbia (Mo.) Missourian reported that a court awarded an actor over $100,000 for something that somebody wrote about him that was not true. A lot of us are just waiting to be lied about for that kind of money. The Dickinson (N. D.) Press speaks out in favor of safety devices on cars, including harnesses for the driver and passengers. JLet's keep those harnesses fairly simple for those of us who are going to have to harness up a bunch of kids before we take to the road. The scientific bombshell of the year, according to The Lima (Ohio) News is the fact that future control of genetics will make possible T>abies to order.' Give us one who will be able to support his parents in grand fashion at the age of five. A Hollywood story in The Belle Fourche (S. D.) Daily Post told about the actor's wife who asked $8,000 a month alimony. No wonder so many of us stay married. Who can afford divorce? The Marshall, (Minn.) Messenger told about a man who went to school to become an umpire. The story was incomplete, though. It didn't tell how they teach an umpire to duck a pop bottle. The News Republic of New Castle, fad, expressed some amazement after viewing a film on the female shoplifter which showed some of the special clothing items and techniques in use. It seems that a gal with pockets in hei* pantaloons is up to no good. The Devil's Lake (N. D.) Journal carried an item aBout the city officials of Pasadena being up in arms about people feeding pigeons in defiance of a city ordinance. Would you call that ordinance a statute for die statues? "By the time the strong get through with it, the meek may not want the earth," says The Wapello (Iowa) Republican. "Young people have all the best of it, so we shouldn't blame them for making the most of it," says The Fairfax (Mo,) Forum, by Bill Stoke* The only advantage of rheumatism is that it keeps people from kicking, observes The Denison (Iowa) Bulletin. The Wells County Free Press of Fessenden, N. D. says that people used to worry because they couldn't take it with them, but now they worry that it won't last as long as they do. The Tell City (Ind.) News tells its readers that a lesson is to be learned from the humble postage stamp—it sticks to the job until it completes it The Worthington (Ind.) Times tells about the young man who was wheeling his infant twins down the street when a woman stopped and gushed over them. "Are they twins?^ she asked. "Oh, no," he assured her, "I've got two wives." "If the going seems easy, you might just be going downhill," warns The Buffalo (S.D.) Times-Herald. A writer for The Warsaw (HL) Bulletin apologizes to his women readers for saying that they are gullible. And he adds that if they think the apology is sincere they are really gullible. The woman's work that is never done is probably what she asked her husband to do last Saturday, says The Sargent County News of Forman, N. D. "A husband often gets a big charge out of his wife's shopping," claims The Loveland (Ohio) Herald. The speed of thought is about 150 miles per hour, reports The Bloomfield (Ind.) News. This is fast, but is isn't fast enough for the fellow who comes home late and has to think up an excuse when his wife appears at the head of the stairs with her arms folded and a dangerous look in her eye. The Clermont Sun of Batavia, Ohio, observes that "Keeping the household can openers sharp is insurance against hunger in these piping times." The Torch of Central Lake, Mich., tells this one. "My father can beat your father," a little boy said to his playmate, "Big deal," replied the playmate, "so can my mother." "Women are more truthful than men," claims The Mercer County Chronicle of Coldwater, Ohio, "unless you ask about their age, weight or how much their husbands make." "People out looking for trouble often underestimate their ability," observes The Clad* win County Record of Gladwin, Mich. Unfortunately this announcement comes a little late, but a dry cleaning establishment advertising in The Daily Reporter of Spencer, Iowa, offered to dry-clean topless bathing suits at one-half off.
