Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta IHfc UlriflRIDGi HfcRAlD Wednesday, June 13, COLUMNIST'S NOTEBOOK By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) There are things to do today, and there isn't one I want to do. Not the largest, not the not a single one. Duty calls but the call falls on deaf ears. The necessary seems needless, the essential palls and becomes trivial. Ev- erything loses its importance. The common satisfactions that stud the ordinary day seem bland and unpleasing. When life becomes that way, it is time for every soul to declare itself a holiday of its National Mental Health Day, if you will, on which every man on earth is free to do as he pleases, and nothing is required or com- pulsive. It should be a day when a man can simply enjoy spring, run away from home, or aer- ate his spirit in any way he chooses to. And if this were National Mental Health Day today. I'd like Hold a picnic in the middle of Times Square Plant a redwood tree Take a Brownie to lunch Push an empty bus over a cliff Dance a iig among the stones at Stonehenge Spend a day on Pitcairn Island talking to the descend- ants of the mutineers of the Bounty.

After 25 years of shopping and cheque cashing in a mod- ern supermarket, to be recog- nized by name either by the manager or one of the elderly clerks. Taking the wife to a place both of you know you can't af- ford and assuring her she looked twice as smart as the food served.
