Transcript Page Four SAL ANSWERS GUS Dear Gus, Yes, I'm right smart jealous of the peace and comfort pou're ahavin', ' cause we aint had much lately. It's a wonder I can calm myself enough to scribble you this letter; I'm that weak and trembly you could push me over with a flat iron. There sure has been a passel of trouble a poppin' around these her parts since Felix Jackson stole his Pa's jug of " popskull," then traded his prize sow for a 1918 Model " T" Ford. It was the one what won the blue ribbon at the County Fair and Pa Jackson's heart was wrapped up in that old hog. He swore he'd fill Felix's hide so full of buckshot it'd take a four horse team to haul him to the hospital. Felix come to our house to stay until his Pappy cooled a mite, and he was mighty nice to me too. Well, they finally met down at Rick Skim­merhorn's blacksmith shop and I l'eckon they had a tolable argyment. Anyways, Felix offered to give his dappled saddle horse for the sow and that pacifyed the old man a smidgin; they finally got in the machine and started down the pike for home. Maybe it was some more of the " popskull," maybe it was just that young feller's natural recklessness, anyhow, he let the darned fool con­traption get off the road and run smack thru the middle of old Mrs. Doty Bodkin's front yard. He run plum over all her fancy flower beds; knocked over the summer house; ruined the brand new chain pump; crashed into one corner of the porch and ended up in the chicken house up- side- down. The old widow lady fainted, but when she came to, the air was blue around there for more'n a spell. Felix tried to sooth her with­nice talkin' but she wouldn't listen and declares she'll sue the Jackson's for all their property's worth. ( That aint a sizable lot, if you ask me.) Friday night, Felix had got the flivver back a runnin' and he asked me to go with him to the dance at the Plum Run schoolhouse. ' Pon my word, Gus, that addle- pated feller nearly scared me into a conniption fit with his powerful reckless drivin'! Why! once he was a goin' nearly twenty- five miles an hour. Imagine that ? ! Next time we walk. THE BLUE BONNET NOSEY NEWS ( Continued from page three) they stop kicking ... Recently the" E" Division made a foraging raid on the Log Room and when they left the hard- boiled eggs went with them ... Hope the fish choked ... Congratula­tions to D. P. Hartley. Glad you made the coveted " buttons" fellow .. .. More Congratulations to the sur­prised quartet: " Pop" Adkins, " Buck" Weaver, St Marie and Yarbrough. Can't think of five guys we'd rather see make it ... In a hurry or other­wise. Pop ( or " Tilly" as he was once called when with the Edsall on the A iatic Station) was the most flabbergasted of them all. He had that old white hat spinning like a top ... Why did " Sadie" Gowler insist on sitting on Michau's lap at the movies ... Another query: Does our Ship's Service Comptroller General ( some- time Osborne) have big ears or is he just naturally a likable cuss? Tha's all folks. It isn't " hoomali­mali" when I say, it's mighty nice of you to listen.... A. loha nuil SEMPER FIDELIS Here's to the modern marine of today, The man who blocks the passageway. He's always there and seems to know Just when and where you want to go. The situation is well in hand: There are no ladders left unmanned. Marines to the left, marines to the right. To get anywhere yeu have to fight. With his big feet all over the floor, He parks his frame within each door; He sticks to his spot as if by glue. And gives you a growl as you stumble through. With marines in the way, you can't go far­That explains how they won the war. - The Cub. Felix sez he's a courtin' me for certain, but I fancy you, Gus. Ma tells me I'm a wastin' time on you and Pa ' lowes you eat too much and can't plow a straight furrow. That sets a gal to ponderin,' Gus, but I calculate you still hold first place, even if you are the biggest eater that ever lived in Muskrat County. This leaves me feelin' right pert for spring 0' the year, except that I've a monstrous big boil on the back of my neck. Hopin' you're the same, I'll say " aw revanueer" for this time.

NATIVE COWBOYS RIDE 500,000 ACRE RANCH ( Continued from page two) head of purebred cattle, the largest single herd of such animals found any place in the world; 2,000 of these herefords are registered pure bloods. Then bookkeeping became such a problem that it was abandoned ex­cept in certain herds, although the majority of the cattle are eligible for registration. Today they find their way to the market as ordinary cattle in spite of their perfect breeding. The Parker Ranch boasts a herd of cow horses, 2,000 in number, raised exclusively for the use of Hawaiian cowboys. The breeding of perfect ani­mals has also found its way in the Parker horses, for the breed is being continually developed. Polo ponies from the Parker Ranch are sold a­round the world..- 1'. Coxswain: " Is she the kind of girl you would give your name to?" Seaman: " Well, maybe, but not my right one." Wife: " Don't drive so fast, you're shaking my chin off." Gunner: " You should worry, you've got a couple of them." " John," asked the nagging wife, as they prepared to retire for the night, " is everything shut up?" " That depends on you," growled John, " everything else is."
