Manitowoc Sun Messenger (Newspaper) - May 12, 1939, Manitowoc, Wisconsin 6.000 Guaranteed OradaU on. THE A copy in almost every Maniiowoc Telephone No. 17 MANITOWOC 813-817 Chicago Street , MESSENGER VOL. VII.-No. 37. MANITOWOC. WISCONSIN May 12, 1989 6 GO-ZIP Being a recording of those things that go ipping as folks talk. And a few vagrant thoughts. Last Week it took the Cubs six days I to win one game and this week they start out by getting one of their star players injured. It looks as though Gabby has a lot of troubles. The city gave the stamp collectors its stamp of approval. �4k Chickens always come home to roast, the aldermen will learn, o When the fight taken out of the picture the county board found itself with but little to do. At that you'll have to admit Chairman Kiel treated the opposition mighty fair. 0 THE BOY GROWS UP! Our home is all a-bustle, Mother has to hustle, Though sister needs her help she has to wait; There's a suit in need of pressing, And a call for help in dressing, For Sonny has grown up and has a date. We remember once when Sonny As a human was quite funny. For his clothes were seldom neat or clean or straight; Now he gets his whitest collar And he raises such a holler If his things are not just right; he has a date. His manners grow assuming And his hair gets much of grooming, Now he walks with carriage most sophisticate; We have lost the little fellow With his rush and squeal and bellow- For Sonny's now a man; he has a date. --o- This is music week but it is not supposed to include chin music. It developes that you only learn how good a man is after he is fired, has resigned or is dead. o ___May-be-the - -Cubs-are t^ng-to establish a record for -wrong guesses in the selection of players to be released. They have done pretty well in that direction thus far. 0 We really don't believe that wrestling has tiiat kind of a toe hold in this community. o The Duke of Windsor made it emphatic that he does not like and does not believe in war, pointing out that both victor and vanquished are losers. The Ships tried hard Sunday but missed the victory harbor by a couple of' points. -0- Good light costs only fifteen cents -for the light bulb. ---o-- -A man's working quotient is a good measuring stick of his ability. Eight hours a day and success are as far apart as the poles. Have the aldermen ever considered putting the salary question to a r'2(ferendum vote? ---o- \o one can be mean and happy any more than an orange can be sweet and sour. -----o----- With all their knowledge, the experts never seem to be able to tell us what we're up against until we're up against it. A - -0- The three balls out in front of the pawn shop just mean that it is two to one you won't get it back. We would like itif, when they say: "That's your story," they would add, "And now we'll get the other side," and then really go out and do just that. Authority that is abused to make needless demonstrations just proves the man who holds the job doesn't know what it is all about. 0 It's hard to find a pair of friends that are entirely satisfactory to both a man and his wife. -0- Do you suppose that they will ever start to launder paper napkins? -0- A life should be nieasured by deeds -not by years. - o � Don't worry, but if you do, don't worry others with your worries. - � o Joe: I heard of a fellow that was arrested for having flat feet. Sam: Flat feet? You can't get arrested for that. Joe: Yeh? He had his feet in the wrong flat. Is anyone checking on the onion skin weather prophets ? Gosh, can't those European countries keep their armies busy by just drilling them over-time? -o Remember back when "neck" was a noun ? Sheboygan English: "I like red-no matter what color it is." -o- Judge Lauer at New York has resigned, proving that even as a judge you can't continue to get away with it. The fishing season opens officially on next Monday. Just who set that date? ------------------- o Do the best you can with what you've got-where you are. -0-- We would rather have halitosis than no breath at all. o We sometimes wonder why the woman who unblushingly displays her legs well above the knees, always becomes so humiliated if she>, discovers that her underskirt is showing a half inch below her dress. �� o You can't OFF-set OFF days by takin?? days OFF. A budding love affair is often a blooming expense. -o- Do you know where the most popular night parking spot in this town is? Go out and hunt for it, it should be fun. When somebody quotes: "Give me liberty or give me death," all a majority of the people think of is a five cent magazine. ........o- Anyway we have the room for a number of stores. We don't know about the business. Yep, Sunday is MOTHER'S day and in most homes she will be expected to get up an extra special dinner for the occasion. The May flowers are here but the spring bargains in coal appear to be a long ways off. Be seeing you again next week. Kadow To Build Ai&F. Super Store On Washington St. Announcement was made yesterday by John M. Kadow of the signing of a lease with a A. & P. company for the erection of a building for a super-sei-vice store on Washington street. The building will be one story, will be located directly west of the Mikado theatre, takings up the spot by the buildings now occupied by the Hessel restaurant and the Goetz bakery and will have a frontage of 60 feet on Washington street with a depth of 120 feet. Consti-uction will be started soon after June 1, the date set for the vacation of the premises by the present tenants. The store is to be ready for occupancy about Sept. 1 with an earlier date, if possible. Written notices have been served on both Goetz and Hessel. Mr. Kadow said that the old ice house, which now houses the radio station studio on the second floor, may be remodeled for use of the Goetz bakery. If the studio is continued on the second floor a new entrance will have to be arranged for. He added that he had not been advised whether the other A. & P. stores in this city will be discontinued, a practice which has sometimes been followed in other cities where superstores have been opened. It is thought here that at lease one of the present stores, that on Western avenue, will be continued because of the special service it renders to rural customers through the White House Milk company. A super-store has been rumored here for months and the signing of the lease this week conofirms those rumors. Announcement has been made that the contracts will be let, or have been let, for the rebuilding of the Public, Service Corporation offices and warehouses at the old site on Qeveland avenue at the Little Manitowoc. The construction work is to be rushed and the company expects to be in the new building before the end of the summer. It has been spread over three places in the city since the fire which destroyed- the-^ld car bams and power house that served as offices, warehouse and garage. The site of the new Kieckhefer Container company plant at South Eighteenth and Dewey streets is about the busiest spot in the city. Construction work is going forward at a rapid pace.
