   Manitowoc Sun Messenger (Newspaper) - June 28, 1940, Manitowoc, Wisconsin                                GO-ZIP Being a recording of those things that go zipping as folks talk. And a few vagrant thoughts. If the treaty of Versailles is a criterion this new treaty should breed even a worse war than the present conflict. Now that we know who the republican candidate is to be what can we do about it? Imagine being a bogey at a G. 0. P. convention. It looks a little as though the aldermen took the public for a little ride on that sewage disposal plant management issue. 0 Summer came is like October used to. Remember the weather we had last fall? It may be good business to operate on Sundays but we have a hunch there are drawbacks. Fraternal activities will be suspended for the next couple of months because fraternalizing during the summer is done out of doors. -0-^ Next Thursday, weather conditions permitting, we celebrate the Fourth of July and we will be back next Friday as usual, our first visit for July. Increase expense is going to eliminate the double feature in a majority of the theatres so increases have their compensations too. -0- We added another milestone to our own record this week but without cetemony. -0 Why do folk pay money to prove they are small and vindictive? 0 A run of luck is about the greatest blessing one can have, but it can be abused, if you sort of sense what we are driving at. o Any "American" citizen who doesn't know what the word American means may have to be taught his place, firmly, if not igently. o We talk of preparedness. Japan has a trained army of 6,000,000. Germany's trained army was 6,500,000. Add whatever coxmtries you please. Our own regular army is 242,000. What a job we have ahead of us. -0 A National Guard of three million would be a mere starter. Want to be a soldier? Rain Simday spoiled a sailing for our Ships to another victory and washed out a lot of other ball games too. If "our Cubs" won a dozen in o row they would be "lucky stiffs" so /ar as the sour pusses are concerned �       v.. O'   � Pretty soon the map makers will quit and say, "What's the use? Yesterday's map is obsolete today." �� �  o It is much better if a couple of inches of water comes down gradual y because that is a lot of water v'lien it covers several counties or the (,'reater part of the state. o There are so many activities the summer camps are suffering-or is it just the weather? o We wonder if Germany expects to ^ake money out o� showing the tourists the havoc they wrought in the various countries they visited." Even the bum weather didn't stop :he success of the Goods picnic Sunday. And it had other competition too. o What the French apparently have not thoroughly learned is that life and liberty are the same. Without liberty, life is hardly worth while. -o- Why should we ask credit for something that we are commanded to do? Folks are peoule who are being asked to: "Listen." "Step this way, please." "Be patient for a few "minutes." Please don't crowd." 'Give me your atention for a moment." Move up a little closer." Stand back."        \ "Make a contribution, however small." Look this way and hold it." 'Let's have a smile." Show your tickets." "Please stop talking in the back of the hall. 'Pay the man at the door as you go out." Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity." "Give the little girl a hand." "Take your time." "Please move to the next aisle. "Sit down in front." "If in favor, raise your hand." "Don't forget the waitresses. "Please don't smoke." "Have your change ready." "Buy a souvenir program from the gentleman who will now pass among you." "Remain seated." "Rise during the singing of the anthem." And perform other annoying, inconvenient, imreasonable and objectionable acts. -0- "Do you remember way back when you met the young ladies and you immediately detected the sweet fragrance of some perfume-Boy that was something. Today oilr sweet girls give you the stink of tobbacco. Boy that's something too. -0- "Give 'em hell but assure them it is for their own feood" seems to be the political idea of the moment. -0- Sheboygan   English:   "Now first comes what he was got to say." --o-- If you ask us right now the things we need "most have  absolutely  no place in politics. "Don't take your half of the road out of the middle." -0- This~came oveFtHe~telephxmer^'No7 Mr. Jones does not work here. He is one of the executives." -o- Wranglers never want for words, especially the political wranglers. -0- Now if they just could put zippers on "hot dogs" everything would be jake. -0- As it stands now we probably wouldn't have any use for the bathing beaches. -0- The coimcil met last night to determine who's who in the two B's in this town. --o-- A blind date for midnight should be about the right time, eh what? -0- I   And that's that. Kadow Offers To SeU City Gravel Tract At $38,000 At a meeting^ of the street committee, with other members of the city council present, Monday night, a 60 acre tract of land with heavy gravel bearing stratas, on Highway 151, was offered to the city for $38,000. The offer was presented by Thomas Kadow, acting secretary of the Kadow Realty company. Under the plan proposed the city can secure he tract on a down payment of $3,800 and an annual payment of $3,800 for nine additional years. The committee decided to refer the offer to the city engineer for definite figures on the available gravel in the tract and also the cost of transporting it to the city-According to the report presented to the council by the Kadow company 1,500,000 yards of builders sand, stone and gravel are available with only a removal of 18 inches of surfoce necessary to get at the gravel. Tests indicate the gravel extends to a depth of 55 feet. At the purchase price the Kadow company pointed out the city would be paying no more than the annual gravel cost over ten year period and would be getting its gravel unmilled for approximately 2^^ cents a yard and at the end of the en years it would still have an adequate supply for many years to come. The street committee also discussed civil service for all city employes and officials, except those elected by the people" or by the council. No ordinance has been submitted but a tentative draft of such a measure was presented to the committee. The street and cemetery and parks department workers would be principally effected. A further study will be made. Quick Wit Saves The Pay Day Roll Last Friday night at about 10:30, John Buss, a diesetter at the Goods plant, was held up and robbed of $1.35 on South 12th street opposite Washington park but his quick wit saved his pay roll which was contained in a wallet. Busse noticed a suspicious character ahead of him and suddenly decided that the wallet would be safer on the inside of his shirt than it would be in his pocket so he made the transfer just in case. It proved to be a good hunch. The man stopped him and demanded his money. Buss turned over what little he had in change and the holdup man demanded to know where the remainder of the "dough" was because he knew it had been payday. Buss was struck in the face when he denied having any more ,according to the report we had, but the robber decided to let it igo at that. Immediately after reaching his home, 1110 South 12th, just a block from the scene of the holdup. Buss telephoned the police and then visited the police headquarters the next day. J. A. Kelley, proprietor of Kelley's Place, and Mrs. Tillie Becker, proprietor of the Club Aurora, both just west of the city, were each fined $25 and the costs in municipal court when they pleaded guilty to charges of selling liquor after 1 a. m. The arrests followed raids by state agents on May 25. Both changed their original pleas of not guilty. That made five out of six who pleaded guilty and paid their fines after first pleading not guilty when arraigned. The local union printers are getting all set f >r the state convention of the typographical union which will be held here October 5 and 6, which you know would be on a Saturday and Sunday without our telling you.

Camp GeoKenLaw, new camp for boys near Wabeno, is attracting great deal of attention and is being attended by a number of local boys because two Manitowoc men are on the staff, Rufin Boyd, director o music in the public schools, and Marvin "Red" Peterson, ^ho is serving as the director of the camp athletic program.
