Take a look at us—a horrible example of the effects of
whooping cough. Note our wan appearance . . . how our
bones rattle as we walk. Isn't it awful?
As a very small chjld we were robust and pleasingly
plump. Glowing health glowed from every skin pore. We
were similar to these children you*
see in milk advertisements. Then
a whooping cough germ hopped
aboard . . . and alas!
From that time on we have
been but a mere shadow of our
self. Up through childhood we
came, bearing the distasteful
nickname of "Skinny." We lost
our. appetitte and what little we
did eat went to our stomach. Hor
rible, horrible years of not being
fat . . . of being called "Skinny"
... of difficulty in getting trous
ers small enough at the waist and
long enough in the legs. And all
because of one whooping cough

Thus it is natural that we give
heed to the parents of small chil
dren here who fear the current
whooping cough epidemic, and
cry to the heavens over the gross
inconsideration of the parents of
children with the whooping
cough who allow their offsprings
the run of the town. Whooping
cough is a far more serious illness
than most people believe, and the
law requires that every case be
quarantined. So what? So infect
ed children are brought down
town to spread the germs to oth
er children, that's what.
It's no skin off our nose. Both

TIME MARCHES ON!
Perhaps by the time this knows
nothing and tells all column hits
print the "silvery" waters of the
Yadkin will be rippling upon the
banks as the newest addition to
Blkin's fleet majestically putt
putts upon its way.
For —and our bosom, such as it
is, swells with pride—as we tell
you that Elkin's first blue print
battle cruiser has been construct
ed by a crew of veteran "old
salts," and the last time we saw
it it was about ready to be launch
Unfortunately, the owners of
the cruiser—Errol Hayes, Charlie
Alexander, "Ankle Deep" Parnell,
and others, insist that they be al
lowed to name the boat, thus
cheating us out of the opportun
ity. We understand they are fig
uring on naming it the "Silver
Cat," or something such, if in
fact they have not already done
Of course it's their boat, and all
that, but we hate to think of such
a name as "Silver Cat" taking its
place with such famous ships as
the U. S. Hootnanny, the U. S. S.
Percy, U. S. S. Lizzie and other
ships that have seen service. We
think the name "U. S. Vinegar
puss" would be much more ap
Anyway, in spite of the name,
it's quite a boat, being equipped,
we understand, with a life pre
server and waterwings, so that
Mr. Parnell's life will not be in
danger if and when the boat
should go on the rocks in knee

THIS AND THAT
Heat waves and such would not
cause nearly so much discomfort
were it not for people talking
about the weather so much.
Last week we were going on in
the even tenor of our way, both
ered very little by the heat. Then
—upon the front pages of all the
daily papers appeared headlines
telling of the terrific heat wave
sweeping the eastern part of the
nation. Not until we saw those
headlines did we give a thought
to the heat. But now we're all
hot and bothered because if- the
papers say there is a heat wave,
then there must be a heat wave,
and if there is a heat wave who
are we not to feel hot?
The power of suggestion is
quite a dinkus. It seems to us
the newspapers could make things
a lot more comfortable for every
one by carrying headlines such
as this: "Forecasters marvel at
unseasonably cool spell," when
ever it really begins to warm up.
If they would, chances are every
one would start sleeping under
blankets, no matter how hot it
Wonder if Elkin tire dealers
had anything to do with putting
those traffic dinkuses at the
downtown intersections, for they
are bound to be helping the tire
We have no way of figuring how
many accidents they have pre
vented, but we do know that to
date they have been responsible
for turning one car over, and
too, have contributed to the
breakage of a rear spring on our
car. We didn't hit it through
reckless driving* either. It was
either hit it or hit another car,
due to the haphazard and
thoughtless way cars are parked
at the corners.
Those semi-flat traffic dinkuses
with the red reflectors are okey,
but in the opinion of every mo
torist we've heard discuss the big
oval ones, they are not only a
nuisance, but a menace. With
cars parking so near the comers,
Elkin streets are Just' not wide
enough for them to fulfill the
