EDITION VOL LVIII Associated Press mid United Press Full Lease Wires Five Cents n Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JULY 28 1952 Consists at Two Ona N0 2S1 One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor Away From the Convention Din T am proceeding on the theory today that both of the listener and I the commentator are entitled to a little reprieve from the political oratory which has been filling the air and mo nopolizing the airwaves through most of July You no doubt have been listen Ing in on it at a radio receiving set and Ive been hearing it at close range in Chicagos International Amphitheater described as the only airconditioned convention hall Jn the world Although only about twothirds as large as the Chicago Stadium seat of other national po litical conventions it is an enorm ous space to aircool Later Ill get around to summa rizing my impressions of the Dem ocratic conclave as I already have done with respect to the earlier Republican gathering But for my allotted time on this occasion Id like to talk to you about topics no more pressing in the scheme of things than bachelors and bald heads hearing aids columnists and red schoolhouses I have in mind a visit with you not a com mentary Ineligible for Both Clubs And Im leading off with the bachelors and baldheads because within recent months Ive been in vited to join an organization oi each Unfortunately or is it seem to be ineligible for both The first of the organizations to rush me for membership calls it self the Bachelors Protective As sociation In the letter of invita tion I was reminded that there arc 19 million unmarried women ii this country and warned that every last one of them is out to capture a husband Bachelors the notice adds are outnumbered and m u s organize for their mutual protec tion The need for this protectioi is growing by the minute This last sentence was heavily under scored The coldturkey offer put to me Is that Ill be insured against mar riage for a full year and theres special rate if I can get four o more bachelors to join me in mem bcrship Well as Ive already suggested Im out of that deal Im married Just how my name ever got on thej mailing list of the Bachelors Pro tective Association is something Ill probably never know Ikes on the Letterhead The second proposition for mem bership in a distinguished organ ization that at the very least youll reached me from the National Baldheaded Club Its headed by an old American Legion buddy of mine Osval Jlan son Once he was my Iowa neigh bor he lived in now hes living at St Cloud Minn and is serving as national organizer of the baldheads Appearing on the letterhead of the invitational letter arc such wellknown names as Gen Dwight D Eisenhower and the Hon Rob ert L Doughton of North Carolina From a personal meeting with the general in France last January and again in Chicago this very month I can testify that he really qualifies for the club And every time 1 look at Mr Doughton the Carolina wizard on governmental finance in the low er house of Congress I wonder what have the nerve to accept the full tariff for that tiny fringe of hair at the base of a dome not unlike a billiard ball I would guess that the part in his hair is the broadest to be found in official it be that of House Speaker Sam Ray burn of Texas Theyre the Chosen Few Baldpates the letter to me points
