Perkins put their bi d in, as the location is good for the ones who Will attend in this area next fall. X X X Lions member cooks sure pulled a boner Monday evening when by some quirk of fate the dish rags got tangled in the hamburger raeat in the sandwiches of Hurley Blumer, captai of the winning membership drive team, and J. A. McLauchlln, Lion president. Captain of the losing team, Paul Evans and his co-workers who prepared the hamburger for the wJners, just couldn't apologize enough when the two Lions bit into their hamburgers and out came the dishrag. The blame finally went to E. L Mc- Carty, a member of the winning team who was helping fry ham- burgers for the losing members. Seems he was trying to wash dishes and fry hamburgers at the same time. X X X We know a former Perkins Joual editor who has been hold ing out on a little news item that People here would be happy to hear about. In reading the Talequah Times nanaged and edited by Glenn Eyler, we noted a news item where Mr and Mrs Glenn Eyler of the Times were expecting a guest, but was delayed by the weather. Actually, we had heard several weeks ago that Glenn was now married, but wanted to wait for confirmation before we made a note of it. Just goes to show, read your newspapers and you'll learn something every time. Congratulations, Glenn!
