WISCONSIN GO-ZIP Being a recording of those things that go zipping as folks taUc. And a few vagrant thoughts. Swan songs usually are only, sung on request. � - o- Well, we are started on the baseball season and arguments. 0 Maybe the milk trucks should be painted some other color than white 80 the sea gulls can recognize them, eh what? We didn't see any of the papers in this country carry any pages of paid congratulatory messages to Hitler on his birthday yesterday. 0 � We have a new city council on the job, not too new but with great possibilities. w It begins to look as though the spring session of the county board may develop some hot newspaper stories. Maybe if more politician were made to give an accounting for remarks made in the campaign there wouldn't be so much loose talk. o A man in his cups talked a bit too much the other day but he couldn't have been drinking wine because, apparently, there wasn't much truth in what he said. (We hear that somebody is making a business of manufacturing lead nickles and dimes. But you can't get away with that Stuff very long. Besides we thought the slot machines are out of the picture. - Why do some men talk virtue at every opportiuiity and live the way they do? � � -o - A home is not just a place to go to eat and sleep, at least not a real home. jQan_ymimagine-anyone~steallng-a bridge? Mr. Roper met one Joe Louis Mon day night but didn't remain in his company very long. Rochester, if you know him, had the right dope. President Roosevelt at least gave the dictators a bit of a pause and perhaps gave the world another little breathing spell. - o �-- The King and Queen of England may or may not come over here this summer but our hunch is that most of us will live through it either way. Sunday and rain are not such a hot combination at this time of the year. -o~- That exposition-armory building is begining to take realjihapejmd f^ "Go up to the fair grounds and look it over. So Messers Hitler and Mussolini I think Mr. Roosevelt is impertinent. IWelJ our term for them is a bit Istronger than that. There are so many people who never should expect that but who ask, "Why can't the world let us alone?" -Lo_ Maybe a fuel shortage may result in our finding some other substance for coal and oil for heating. Perhaps Hitler and Mussolini can provide the world with the heat it needs. Our bowling team, we have told you shout them on many occasions, fin* Jhed in the cellar and got a prize for doing so. Imagine. Maybe well use money to pay our entrance fee next season and all of the teams bould be glad to have us. They demand thai the president iitervene and when he complies they to know what boslneBfl of his iB. Life is like that. Johnny Torrio, one time gangdom big shot, is another victim of the income tax division. One man right now is worrying terribly about just how much the police know. � -o - - We suppose when the announcer says: "It is raining," that confirms it. Before that you couldn't be sure of it. And a slice of life is something you get at the movies. Remember way back when everybody was all wrought up over packing the supreme court? � � � o------- A recreation director, it appears, is something we can get along without, if we have to. .....o- ' � That new trans-Atlantic air service should bring a few extra visitors to the New York world's fair but not enough to count anywhere except in the publicity department. -o- Here we never have to worry about a flood even though it pours, which is something when you read about conditions in other sections of the country. -o~. .. We could say something about winter lingering in the lap of spring but what's the use? ~-It-isn't-often~"thatiai mayor "ge^^^ chance to appoint and elect the same official. .....o It seems the city council has ideas about the city attorney's job. o' ' " And the first job of the new city dentist was to extract the job from the council. Sheboygan English: "I can't afford to pay for perpetual motion at the cemetery." "Oh, he has Atlantic fits, you know." "I don't feel so good. I got trouble. I bulge up so." o ... Man is out a worm. He comes here, wiggles around for a while and then some chicken gets him. 'Sfunny but in this country you have to produce a certificate before you can prove that you were bom. o And then there was the young lady who was going to get married and spent three months getting her torso ready. -0- Right now there is no danger of the country drying up. Well hear about that later. Good Authority. "What's your name?" ''Mah name is Hallowed, Hallowed Hopkins." "Where did your mammy get that name?" "Frum de seriptiiahs. Don* yo^ al remembah whar it sayr 'Hallowed be Thy name ?'"
