Telephone No. 17 THE A copy in almost eveiry Maniiowbc Home 813-817 Chicago Street ----*-------d^ir 'Y"ll^  "X" cinicago Street. MANITOWOC SUN- MESSENGER VOL. V, No. 10 MANITOWOC, WISCONSIN Octol^er 30, 1936 GO-ZIP Being a recording of those things that go zipping as folks talk. And a few vagrant thoughts. There are plenty of others but they are not getting as much publicity as the king. -o- In fact, if the truth be told, there are .some spicy stories behind some of the divorces which were granted here but they do not appear in the court records. Neither will Mrs. Simpson's. They did another launching- at the yards last week without ceremony but here's hoping we have a launching that is going to require a lot of core-monies, -o- Kext Tuesday night, just about in the middle of it, some folks are going to do a bit of celebrating and a lot of others are going to wonder jusl what made them think they could win. -o- Make up your mind right now that you had better vote  early  because there is going to be a last minute -'rush. -o- After next Tuesday you will be getting all of your regular programs and no one will be saing the country. It will take care of itself. i -o- We may get that addition to the city hall. In fact it looks as though ev-eorything is set. It seems to be almost a rule that the faster the drive the less dilfer-ence it makes whether they get there. -o- To hear some folks describe a thirty cent dinner you'd think they had dined like kings and cjueens. --u--- The trouble with a lot of men is that they'll talk more religion in ten minutes than they'll practice in a year. CELLOPHANE The way they use that cellophane - Has come -to-be- an awful pain You simply can't, it seems of late, Obtain things in their pristine state, Kegardless of the time or place This new contraption shows its face. You'll fmd it wrapped around cigars Hound all the brands of caiuly candy bars, Round shirts and socks and underwi'U!' Hound tonics for your falling hair, Hound lamp shades large, or lamp . shades small. Round pictures which adorn your wall, Roujid cakes and pies, pajamas, too, Hound i)resents which are sent to you, Hound salted peanuts, mints and gun,, Hound bottles whicli contain bay rum. !\{uund bottles too, which hold j)erfuinu Hound trinkets for the baby's room.

Just rounti and round anri rciund it goes, 'And when- it .^tops the j^-ood I^ord knows, h'.e wrappeil around a million thin^-. I!wt sometiiing which the pf>stnia!i brings. Mo."-: every month, around the first, .Just makes my poor heart almo^t [The letter, cellophaned in front, jArother bill, another grunt. -Rev, Lawrence J. Fiynn -o- The young man grasped the hand rail of the last car and swung himself up to the rear platform, gasping for breath. It was plain that he was quite winded. A bronzed, heavy-set middle-aged man eyed him with disfavor. "When 1 was your age, young man," he remarked, "I could sprint down the station walk and catch a train without puffing like that." "Yes, but 1-missed this one-at- the-last station," panted the; new arrival. One man says the reason so many of us rest our chin in our hands when we are thinking is becaui^e it keeps our mouths shut so we won't disturb ourselves. They were discussing a recent marriage. Said one: "It doesn't look as though it is going to last long, lie used to swear by her and now he swears at her." The limit is one deer to a n\an. That is supposed to be the limit on dears too-but-well, write your own ticket. .lust a Fair Question If there's v^o much good is the worst of us. And so much bad in the best of us, Why does one political party claim All the virtues in the talks to the rest of us The man who has forgotten how to dream has foi-gotten how to live. A sun flower is planted in June, blooms in Septeml)er, droops in October, dies in November, is iM) pi'r I'on! yellow und the brown black center seeds are only good for parrn in tlie use r,f eKp!osi\-. The Montgomery Ward crimpany has started work remodeling the rdd Two Rivers Mercantile comiiany stor*; building at Two Rivers and will occupy the yilace as soon as the job is completed. Order Paving of Gy/i Miles on 151 in 1937 That six and one-half mile stretch on Highway ITil at the west county limits will be concreted in VJ'M ac-ording to word received by the county highway commission Wednesday, The construction of bridges, culverts and the grading of the relocated route is now being completed. It is understood that the present detour over County Trunk J nortii through Collins and back to Highway 151 ovei State Trunk IV2 will be maintained all winter to enable the contractors to continue work until spring without interference by the tralfic. The county will receive $138,570 in state allotments in addition to an item of .$5:').-027 for maintenance and improvements. $iKi,00() is to be used for retirement of bonds that fall due next year. .-\s a result of the decision to jiave 151 the concreting of Waldo boulevard east of Sixth stri'et will probably be delayed until l'.)3S. Crading and im-|)ro\ing Highway V from Mishicot to -12 is about completed. The new bridge at Heif's Mills is in service and graveling on a number of other roads is about completed also. The county board will probably make a tour of insjiection during tiie November session. With the time extended for ;in atl-ditional three days in an elVort to put the Community Chest Fund drivi- over the goal of .'f20,0()(), the co-ciiairmeii were forci'd to announce Wednesday that Manitowoc had fallen short of the mark. Some of this will bi' made uj) by late contributions but the record makes the showing for a city of th(> size of Manitowoc a bit disajipointing. Al Wau.sau the goal was ,'ivlS,21i) and was passed. .Many cities in our class went over the top ami the failuri; here cannot easily be explained, \ou can still contribute. That iiOgan case at Two ifivers is still in the; head lines. The fire and police commission found him guilty of misconduct and ordered him demoted to patrolman but \w. remains as a mend)er of the foire. He was the chief and then reduced to a sergeant, then relieved of duty entirely for the goo(|_ (d' the force but took his case to the circuit court and then to tlie sufireme court to win a reinstaUuneiit. The demotion is for three months with a liroviso that if the :j;21.2l fees involv-(m1 are not returned his services will be pei-manently terminat<'d. The county board will m .',ram and a lumdier of other items ni' intere-1 will  be \ip. The  lii>j^bwa\' committee members will be e|ecte 'lum ai'e also a p.art of lie proi-'ram. .Amiouncenient has been made of the firomot.ion ni' ,A second floor and a new council chamber would be included on the third floor. The present structure would be remodelled and furnish the police with (juarters now occupied by the utility department and garage quarters would be constructed at the rear, Uinler the second jilan the po-lii'e (lep.artment would b(^ housed in a separate building with the second floor to l)e used for housing the relief department and the employment olVices, saving the city a considerable sum in rent, 'i'he estimated cost > is .$140,220 and the city's share would be .$(17, M(;. ^' While no agreement was reached Wednesday night it is understood the ((unmittee is ready with both a majority an- business and industri.al firms al-s.. turned in jdO per cent re<'ords.
