Whenever things get tough in America, we start making jokes. It doesn't make the problem go away, but it makes it easier to live with. And that's the way things are going now, as the American sense of humor begins to exert itself. A Joke going round: "Have you heard the new loyalty oath: 'Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Committee For the Re-elec- tion Of the President.' A bumper sticker: "IM- PEACHMENT WITH HON- OR." Milton Berle's gag: "I over- heard two men talking on the presidential yacht. One of them said, 'Please say we're going north don't say we're going up the river." At the Emmy awards, John- ny Carson said: I haven't heard so much credit given to others since James McCord Jack Carter's gag: "I hope Nixon won't be impeached then we'd have Sinatra for president.'' Jack Burns and Avery Schreiber are coming out with a comedy album about Water- gate. Sample bit "ANNOUNCER: The Tomgh' Show, with special guest hosi Richard Nixon, the music of H. R. Haldemann and His Buck Passers, the singing of the Watergate Seven has been preempted." Another joke going around: "Have you seen the new bed It's a Watergate Bed you can lie on it." Also from the Emmy Awards show Don Rickles, ex plaining how the TV academy voted, said: "The members vote by secret ballot. In this country, you know how secret that is." Two men have come out with a card game, The Water- gate Scandal Game. Excerpt from "Instructions On How To "Cheating and deception nol only add zest to this game, but it's the only sure way to come out on top." Another Milton Berle gag "The GOP has already decided on its '76 campaign slogan 'Four more years with two off for good behavior.' Bob Hope says he's to go on tour after all nex Christmas "I'm going to do a show for the Watergate wounded." During the News and Docu mentary Emmy Award show Walter Cronkite referred to "the reliable accounting firm Price Watergate." Edward Asner greets friends with a clenched fist and the words: "Free the Watergate 500." 1 Still another gag from Mil- ton Berle: "Being a public fi- gure in Washington these day is difficult. One week you're on the cover of Time, and the next week you're doing it." There is even a subliminal gag effect, as witness the case of Jim Nabors, who asked his maid if she had seen his Wat- ergate. He meant his Water- pik. Another gag making the rounds: "Things are so bad in Washington that Nixon is de- manding a recount." During the committee hear- ings, many programs were pre- empted, among them Monty HaU's Let's Make a Deal. Hall says they just preempted one version of Let's Make a Deal to televise another. Edgar Bergen's gag: "I've been hearing so many Water- gate jokes that I'm bugged." (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) BOYS CLAIM SEE-SAW RECORD WELLAND. Ont. (CP) Eight Welland'boys claim a world record of 284 hours for keeping a see-saw mov- ing up and down. Working in 2'4-hour shifts, they continued from last Tuesday until Saturday. They said their time beat the 232 hours set by five persons last April in Pre- ston, Ont. The Guinness Book of Records gives only a two- man record of 124 hours, set by two high sehso! students in California in 1970. SECOND NEWSPAPER ADP It Just Doesn't Exist! Some folks in the electronic advertising business would have you believe that newspaper readers are an average lot, will skim through their daily paper and only spend an average of six seconds with each page. This isn't so and never will be. Statistics show that the more intelligent and educated a person, the more time will be spent reading newspapers. Newspaper readers are highly selective: When they buy houses they read house ads, when they buy clothes, they read clothing ads, when they buy food, they read food ads, when they buy cars, they read car ads, etc. They take all the reading time they need to make an intelligent decision on what to buy and where to shop. When It's Shopping Time, Folks Spend More Time Reading Your Adi PROVE IT? We just did! You spent 35 to 45 seconds just reading this ad! But, take your time, read it again if you like, this ad will not disappearl The lethbrtdge Herald "Serves the South"
