Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - January 27, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news partly Cloudy these Days by George e. Sekolsky toll t It would seem to me that con-6less ought to leave tile question of a toll or a a advertisers t to the consumer. After All. If you or i Are willing to pay a Quarter to see Ward Bond drive a Wagon while boy kisses girl and the indians hoopla that ought to be our option Tore can be no Public reasons for opposing toll t v., although tiler May be Many private ones. Recently having become sedentary. I like very late at night to turn on an old fashioned movie some of which Are very amusing but i grow weary of having the sequence interrupted by a girl dancing a Ballet in front of a Box of soap or a fellow with a Beard shaving it off or a woman squirting 5 me stuff on herself to avoid smelling like a human being. These interruptions spoil the picture for my. And therefore i am aroused emotionally against the products j it would be Worth two quarters tot see the pictures without the interruptions. 1 but what is even worse than the interruptions is the extremely Low Quality of the advertisements. Do you really believe that one filter up is Superior to another and that if you have a headache one kind of stuff gets rid of it faster than the other if this is True the Etc is doing a very bad Job and because it should not permit the inferior c a modify to advertise at All. Brides i Don t have a headache and i hate anyone who suggests that i May have a headache. The suggestion might bring one on. So now i have a device which someone Serif me that knocks everything off the air which i reject. But most of the time i forget to use it. I simply leave the room when the bad advertising comes on. Who needs to know How women make their hair look fancy when i was Young All that interested me was that a girl was attractive. Nowadays. It is doubly so because i am reaching those years of Wisdom and selectivity when Beauty is own Reward. Why spoil my illusions by telling me that the Young thing really looks like an old hag but she has some stuff which she buys in a drug store that removes or erases ail her blemishes also Marks of character and refinement that colors her hair and shades her Eye bios and distorts her Mouth and sets her hair and gives her curls natural and unnatural vol.
