Little of That S hope were in agreement on this one general proposition my good friends I contend that there are some days that just wereni designed for heavy or profound thinking This is one of them In my own case this conviction is going to take the form of a commentary of miscellany drawn from here and there and every where mostly my daily news paper column Im not going to try to save any souls or remake any worlds At your end of the line I just hope that youre going to be in the lame mood Im hoping that youll have a preference for what might be referred to as chitchat as dis tinguished from profound observa tions about earthshaking events That will make for a meeting of minds for a pleasant quarter of an hour together I trust A Confession First And I think Im going to start by confessing that I havent yet made good on one aspiration I put in towords in my column on the very first day of this year I hope some time during the 12 months ahead I wrote to muster up enough nerve to do something that has been gather ing form in my thoughtprocesses for a long long time When a motorist nonchalantly plants his car squarely across the pedestrians path while waiting for a stoplight Im planning to open the back door and proceed on my way through said car As a little MU on this act of bold courage Im planning to leave both backdoors wide open Greater Boldnw Needed When the time comet for this I added Ill probably lose my nerve But at the moment I cant a better way to point up involved in this too common performance by our motorists If somebody carries through on MY resolution here outlined I concluded I wont be too disappointed Id like to pass on a reportaboutlttofljy readers or listeners as the case might be No I havent yetscrewed up my courage sufficiently to do what needs doing My only comfort rests in the fact that theres still sev eral months left in I always get bolder as the year gets older Wrong Picture Printed And now to turn to something else equally unimportant in the scheme of things And again I draw on that personal column I have always felt that news papers which give space to the picture of a little boy or sometimes a mere a big cigar are making a mistake from the standpoint of news evaluation I think youre going to remem ber one of a few weeks ago It showed a4 year old Portland Ore girl puffing away on a giantEl Ropo Her father was listed as a grocer was stated that the childs smoking had his full approval I asked then and Why I ask my own and other papers insist on a pic ture of the old man The public Im sure would be interested in seeing what such a jackass looks like Sunday Sickness Remedy Earlier this year I spent quite a little time visiting with you about strange malady which has been designated Morbus Sabbaticus In Latin that means Sunday Sickness and it accounts for so many empty church pews on Sun day forenoon Mostly I just de scribed the symptoms Its a shame wrote one of my friends to leave one in that con dition without at least offering to help the many who are afflicted And she followed this up with what she recommended as a sure fire prescription On morning rise at oclock and use plenty of cold wa ter on the face eat a plain hearty breakfast Then mix up and take internally a dose composed of the following ingredients And Stir Them Well Will push energy determina tion selfrespect respect for Gods day respect for Gods Book a de sire to be somebody and the de sire to be a good citizen Stir the above ingredients well add a little love to make it sweet take a large dose every 3 minutes until Sunday school time unless relief comes sooner If the day is stormy an ex ternal application of overshoes raincoats and umbrellas will be helpful And now that weve taken care of that momentous problem were ready for something else Lesson From Russian Not so long ago my attention was drawnto the visit in a neigh boring city by a former lieutenant colonel in the Russian air force He had what seemed to me to be extremely valuable lesson for homegrown Americans who wake CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Allied Negotiators Get Final Briefing UN Advance Headquarters Korea negotia tors gathered here again Monday armed
