XXXX I was trying to get some free medical advice from a local veterinarian and found out they have a birth control pill for cats. "You put one pill between their front paws, and another between their back paws, and as long as they hold onto them you've got nothing to worry about." He didn't even send me a bill. Oughta send him one! XXXX Talking about exterminat- animals...a Journal reader from California, Mr. Ches- hey Stewart wrote in about killing moles. We had mole holes all over bur yard practically overnight. Satur- day afternoon after recuper- ating from the OSU-OU games, I backed the car into the yard, found a mole hole that was open, got the hose off the vaccuum sweeper, stuck one end in the exhaust, one into the mole hole and let the motor idle for 10 minutes. In two days there has been no more mole holes. Thanks for the tip, Mr. Stewart. XXXX When you drive to the county seat, you may not have to plug parking meters any longer, but you do relegate control of your vehicle to brand new signal lights at each intersection on Main. It was our humble opinion that traffic was better regulated and moved more orderly and smoothly when the construction project made four-way stops neces- sary at several of the intersections. However, last week the city traffic engineer justified the new $48,000 traffic light system with statistics that showed 600% increase in auto mishaps at the down- town intersections during the month of May. There was also a 300% increase for the year, according to the report. We would like to point out that there was also a major revamping and construction project going on on those streets for six months of that period, and it is only a miracle that there were not numerous other accidents considering the extent of the project and the fact that authorities left the streets open during it. In May, if you recall, the intersection on the west side of the street at 7th and 8th streets were still major construction points. If there was a 600% increase in accidents, I would say this might have something to do with it, not the fact that there were no signal lights. The trend in establishing mall type streets in down- town business areas is away from traffic control lights. The unhampered traffic flow in downtown Stillwater was never given a chance -- what with makeshift stop signs and extensive construction on one, then the other side of the street. Ideally it should be undertaken now when the street is wider and there is more room for entering and exiting the parking along the curb, where intersections are more open and visible, and marking of traffic lanes is much better than it was. Of course, if the engineering department must justify and account for the quarter of a million dollars, then the $48,000 was a good invest- ment -- but it is not the answer to the problem.

Stillwater I I I I Sound Off (From Page 2) family wanted but could not afford. Today, newspapers, magazines, radio and TV have, to a large extent, replaced many shoppers' needs for mail order catalogs. My only personal memory of the colorful catalog is that it supplied a whole world of fantasy. I was about nine years old, and we lived in a large two-story house, with the upstairs four rooms equally as large as the four downstairs rooms. One upstairs room was my very own despite the ghost story which applied to the former owners. One of their young daughters was riding horseback in the fields when a storm came up. She rode the horse under a tree, as I recall and either lightning struck the tree or scared the horse, and it ran away. As a result, the young girl was dragged to death, and her bloody garments were hung upstairs. But the story was not especially 'frightening to me in my world of make-believe. The floor of the vacant room was covered with a vast "house" for my paper dolls cut from the newest catalogs. The dolls were choice people, to make up a family unit. Pages of beautiful designs from wall paper books were used for rugs and to make "stand-up" furniture cre- ated from my imagination. For hours on end, I lived the lives of entire families who were comfortable and happy. Until one day I heard a weird sound that called "Who-o-o-o, Who-o-o-o?" Visions of the dead girl's ghost was too much, and I screamed "bloody-murder!" My poor mother came running up the stairs, scared half out of her wits, to drive off a poor little owl who was as'frighten as I. But for the life of me, I cannot recall anything we ever ordered from these magical books. Today television shows such as the Waltons still bring back fond memories. There was never any idle time for farm children. The world was our "oyster", for it was just as big as our dreams. I still can hear the familiar sounds of a cow lowing, smell the sweet odor of the earth, hear the cackling of a setting hen or the song of a bird. My one regret is that there was never enough reading material. Still, the family Bible, too large to hold, was laid in the middle of the floor where, on my tummy, I entered still another world. I can hear my mother, now, as I grew older -- "I wish you would get your nose out of that book (whatever I was reading) and help me." Now, with television shows saturated with sex and violence, or toys that leave little to the youngster's imagination, it is no wonder children turn to vandalism. However, we as parents, grandparents and mature adults are responsible. We, too, have lost much of our sense of adventure and our ability to stimulate our own creative imagination. Per- haps that is why this generation has become more interested in history. It leaves a lot to the imagination -- as opposed to television and many other facets of everyday living. With the prediction of a long hard winter by some, this may prove a good time to free the imagination. Folk- lore has it that glutenous bears, miserly squirrels, fast-m0ving wooly worms, and loud-mouthed katy-dids are signs which foretell the coming of a severe winter. Other prognosticators say more evidence of a hard winter is seen in thick bark on trees, early migration of Monarch Butterflies, and some birds, thick coats on dogs and skunk cabbage which is as high as seven feet in some areas of Colorado. The evidence of folklore and its predictions in shows the natural instinct man and animal to use imaginative and creati mind. -0- RIPLEY TOWN BOARD MEETS (From Page 1) close at 7:00 p.m. on day.
