Dave Speigel Lends Aid in
Search for Unique Gestures
By SNAKI KNIGHT
Why do you get mad when someone
thumbs his nose at you? Do you really
know what it means? Are you puzzled
about any little gesture?
Why do you whisper to a friend,
"Mary's such a dog-gone high hat!"
and why does your friend whisper back.
"Yeah, and her old man's certainly a
Why do you "pull a long face" when
an exam is announced?
Why do we "root for our team" or
"Prick up our ears" or "Tear our hair"
or "Wear a hang-dog look"?
Do you know?
Can you guess?
If you can't, hie yourself to East
Parlor immediately and have a serious
interview with Dr. Hayes. Ilis fam
ous and unusual hobby has carried him
from north to south, from Hobby Lobby
to Hollywood. He and a talking par
rot. were on Hobby Lobby together.)
Even though he has collected over seven
hundred gestures already, he's still

David Speigel, a former (luiifordlan,

comes this V-inail letter:
"M.v dear Dr. Hayes:
"Knowing that you are a collector of
gestures, 1 want to tell you one about
the Arabs that lirst struck me as being
radically different from the classic Arab
in Syria and Palestine. 1 once told
you that the Palestine Arab greets his
friend with a slight bow and makes
a movement with her right hand lirst
to his mouth, then to his head, down
to his heart, and back to his mouth,
then with a slightly sweeping motion
towards the guest. Here is a great
inodiflcation. The Arabs have modified
their greeting to a very weak hand
shake, usually only holding each oth
ers' lingers for a fraction of a second
and then bringing up the index linger
of the right hand to the lips and kiss
ing the same.
"I hope that this is a bit of help to
your collection. I don't have to tell
you that the French will shake your

The Ides of March Or the
Laments of the Taxpayer
Hy M. J.
Last summer I worked as a combi
nation file-clerk, errand-girl, stooge
and dnmh-waiter, for which arduous
work 1 received a paltry sum. During
this time the government, with greedy
lingers, clutched away a goodly sized
portion of said sum in the form of a
"withholding tax." After my frenzied
yells and shrieks had permeated the
three-story building in which 1 worked,
my employer patted me on the head
with facial expressions betraying dis
gust and murmured soothingly, "All in
good time—it will come back !"
Great was the dismay of my naive
mind when, three or four days ago I
discovered it would not "come hack"
unaided. Obeying the commands of
one of Guilford's more astute citizens,
I hied myself to the Greensboro Clinic
for Taxpayers. Inc. Ilere I stood in
line one hour and forty-five minutes.
At last—oh. joy divine! 1 reached the
inner portals of said establishment
and was about to lay frantic hands
upon the beautiful example of the de
cline and fall of American Manhood
behind the desk when, to my ineredu
