An over, qreater investment must lie mad inSJorth Carolina
this year, with the result that the Investment per telephone station

per telephone station.
The enormous sums of money needed each year cannot be

LyiriR there in all your splendor
Like a prince ot other days.
Greeting with a smile so tender
Everyone's adoring gaze
How contented with your station
Is your happy little heart!
Fretfulness and lamentation
In your program have small part.
Just to lie and kick and wriggle
And to stretch and squirm and roi
While you grunt and coo and giggle-
Bless your joyous baby soul.
All you ask is rest and quiet
And a mother's loving care;
Yours is such a simple diet:
Water, milk and goodsfresh air.
How I envy you the pleasures
Of your artless baby ways.
And the many priceless treasures
That enrich your baby days!
I wish I could have them haul me
In a baby cab again
And could hear sweet voices call m
Things they seldom say to men!
