B. parkin~ meter patron whose story was re­lated recently. This automobili t read the meter at the curb on Pine Avenue where his car was parked, then looked at hi watch while his face registered perplexity. He finally turned to an­other man: " What'll I do? he asked. " I'm ready to go, but my hour isn't up yet." * * * * * Much Ado About Nothing: Bulla the " hot- footing" maniac from the Evaps is going pansy. He was seen Fervent Feud: The " Squeaky" Campbell- Crego enmity is of such long standing most are aware of it. Few know the reason why these two one- time best buddys are now im­placable enemies. ( At least that's what Crego is.) Adam now reveals the truth: Crego had an apartment in L. B. and his friend " Squeaky" o: ten visited there. One night he came in to find the occupant out. Apparently Crego was soon to return as he had left a large bowl of de­licious ripe strawberries on the din­ette table- sugared and everything . . . The visitor liked the fruit and being hungry tasted, nibbled, then proceeded to devour every luscious berry. With malicious sense of hu­mor the glutton then left this note: " Thanks for the dessert. They were swell, but there wasn't enough sugar on them." plied, ' Mister, that tire was struck by a rattle snake- they always swell up thataway, and that's why I keep this serum on hand.' ... After what I had just seen, there was no reason­able argument, so I paid him and drove on." ADAM ADDS: That puts Duke in the same class as those fam­ous raconteurs, Bob Burns and Hank Cromwell. Short Snake Story: Duke Palmer, two- buttoned Chief of the " M" gets four bells for this tale, told with a straight face, and no tongue in cheek. Here ' tis: " This may not ring true but it's gospel ... Once while driving east across the desert I noticed some­thing holding the car as if my brakes were on. Upon investigation I found the right front tire inflated so much it was rubbing hard against the fen­der. Bewildered, but having no spare, I did the only thing possible: released some of the air and traveled on. Soon afterwards the same thing hap­pened again- and again. Each time the swollen tire would return to nor­mal when the air was let out, only to swell again. This went on for hours until I came to one of those rare desert service stations. When I asked the attendant what could be wrong with the ailing tire, he smiled and said, ' That's a common occurrence around these parts, stranger.' He then jabbed a serum gun into the tire and gave it a shot; it quickly returned to its normal size. Amazed, I asked for an explanation.
