But what is doodling, and why
is it so underrated?
There are two types of doodlers
—the circlers and the real-gone
squares. The designs of the first
somewhat resemble the “poodle”
hair cut as seen from the top. The
latter is precisely what it says—
a bunch of squares arranged in an
The really talented doodlers, but

of these around, are the eirsquares.
They artistically combine the cir
cles and crazy squares. Their fin
ished products are often called
modern art and even win prizes.
This, however, is a highly advanced
form of doodling.
Doodling has been termed by
some as a nervous condition. Could
this have been what ailed the
senior senator from Wisconsin re
cently? One of his doodles was
even published on the front page
of the GREENSBORO DAILY
NEWS. It was drawn at one of his
famous investigations. The style
was a rather messy stage of cir-
squares. Who dares to say that
doodling isn’t worthy?
So take heart, doodlers, and
don’t dispair. Your day will come.
And remember, the best modern |
art in the museum was probably
a doodle originally!
