The Journal, Thursday, July 26, 1973 - 7 November 25, 1952--I.f we keep on trying to be the big shot to everybody all over the world, giving away our resour- ces and our money and going into debt to support the rest of the world, we could get in the same shape as an oldboy Iknew one time. He had a lot of money when he married into a poor family. Do you know that good old boy got so ragged, trying to make his relations rich, he had to carry his money in his mouth. By Cathy Prickett Dwight Fields was married last Saturday evening, July 21, to Debbie Sadier of Ripley. We world like to congradulate them. Mrs. Christine Tietz flew to Maryland, where her son Mac lives. Mac and his wife lost their baby. 1952--The obliga- Committments that and the President the American and then the asking us why we )re, reminds me of asked a great big, "Why did you give fellow such a ~u know he is no great big fellow like old boy replied, Simply wasn't phy- to take the beating to give him." December 22, 1952--I notice when they get these old boys up to try them to see whether or not they are communists, it is practically impossible to keep them from jumping up and cor- recting any testimony against them. They remind me of the Irish- man who was being tried in old Judge Parker's court one time. The old judge had the reputation of hanging practically everyone that was tried in his court. While the old Irishman was being tried he would jump up and correct the witnesses all the time. Finally Judge Parker said, "Sit down and stay down and you will get justice in this court." The Irishman said, "Judge, that's what I'm afraid of!" Yours, Tom The young peopl~ of the Me- han Church and their youth leader, Ralph Zetterberg, are planning a "Sing-ln" for var- Ious churches in thls area. We hope to have it next month. All of the people of Mehan would like to welcome Frank Kelly into our vicinity. He bought him a trailer house and plans to live here. Greg and Steve McKnight ar- rived home Wednesday from Oklahoma City where they had been visiting their cousins. B.honda, Cathy and Ted Pric- kett went to Falls Creek Baptist Assembly last Friday evening. They returned Saturday report- ing a very nice time. Tracy and Cary Field spent last week with their grandpar- ents, Margle and Leo Fields. PRICES IN THIS AO GOOD THROUGH AUGUST 7,1973 QUANTITIES'LIMITED TO SUI L Y ON HAND- HURRY/ m 16 COLORS!

It seems that he ate the to- f bacco out of a cigarette dropped in the yard by a visitor, so the theory persists. Yesterday was the first day of National Farm Safety Week which ends next Wednesday (see last week's column for more details). Let's try to be more careful with farm ma- chinery so this will be a Farm Safety Week to remember. Farming is supposed to be the third most dangerous occu- pation so be careful. If you have any reports on how National Farm Safety Week went contact me at the number given at the bottom of this column. The 19th annual STEAM THRESHING BEE startsthisFri- day (tomorrow). Admission fee is $1 for peopleover twelve. Besides money for lunch (you may want to take yottr own) there is a steam sawmill that saws lumber and sells the shingles and shavings, so you may want totake extra money. Waukomis is north of Hennessey and south of Enid on Highway 81. The Threshing Bee is 3 miles west of Wauko,, mis. Next week I plan to have a report of it in this column. Have you ever ground your own flour7 At our farm, lately, we have been grinding our own flour. We've been doing it with a borrowed wheat grinder. Flour usually sells for around 11~ a pound. Growning wheat costs 4~ a pound. You grind the wheat at no charge and presto! 7~ ,discount. Also, whole wheat flour is more nutrious than commercial flour. Next week I hope to have some Pictures of the grinder. Plan to be at the Payne County Fair at theend of August and beginning of September. There should be some good exhibits there. More cletails later. The corn has passed the stage where it is any good for roasting ears. This year's cbrn crop was nothing to brag about.
