Warren street, lives between Friday
and Mundy,. (See footnote at bot-1

in tickling a typewriter over a
period of more years than wc care
to recall we Have often used the ex
pression “not worth a tinker’s dam."
One time a holier-than-thou Indi
vidual (wonder if they know how
delightfully the world could get
along without their type?* called us
down for using profanity in the
Not that it matters very much,
but for fear others will be needless

aint cursin'. A tinker's dam, friends,
is a little wall of mud which a tink
er uses to protect a spot which he
proposes to solder. When the sol
dering is completed the piece of
mud is thrown away. So you see
anything “not worth a tinker’s dam”
isn’t worth Very much.
Now that we have that- sinful
topic off our chest, wonder what
else there is to chat about.
O, jest A black boy staggered Into
a local drug store the other night
holding his jaw and begging for a
doctor. When the doctor got to him
he told a fantastic yarn about
someone swinging at him with ah
axe and barely cutting across his
<aw. The doctor looked at the in
i jury. %
"Boy, you're lyin',” the physician
said to him. "An axe didnt do that.

best known young men called us i
into an alley, shuffled up close and
whispered ’’Who is she?” To date
1,346 peop’e have expressed more or
less curiosity about the matter.
Down at Dnke university, that
mlllion-dollar school house at Dur
ham, there are four Cleveland coun
ty boys of whom all of us home
folks should be proud.
When the new Duke medical
school opened over three thousand
(3,002, to be exact) young men ap
plied for admission. After the tests
were Riven only 52 were admitted.
Four of the 52 were Cleveland coun
ty boys. If that isn’t something to
get high-hat over, what Is?
One of the quartet, W M. E..
dropping us a note, Informs that all

we thought we realized why they
are such smart boys. But then he
added this line—"But don't get up

that we desire to remain friends

help Wade win a championship by
tipping him off about a young, long

Down in Raleigh the other morn

representatives walked up to the
desk at the Sir Walter each of them
was handed a sample package of
a popular headache powder with
their mall. Those fellows who do
the advertising for the headache
relief firm certainly know their

we are wondering if they cou’d
have selected a better group in
which to pass out samples.
We say that remembering the
niece Spencer Murphy, whose own
dad Is a veteran legiTator, wrote
about the dressers in the Raleigh
hotels. You remember it—dressers
with round stains all over them
made by dripping fruit Jars?
That may cause the general as
sembly to pass a law making it a
crime for anyone, nitwits or other
wise, to write newspaper columns.

at being ostracized and beheaded:

DUAL HIGH PERFORMANCE
The smart Chrysler Straight Eights have an ex
clusive Multi-Range 4-speed transmission providing
Dual High gears and a quiet, quick gear shift.
One "high” is fat sprinting in traffic and for fast,
easy hill-ciunbing — the other for the open toad.
low CENTER OF GRAVITY
An extremely low center of gravity, besides being an
attribute of unusual smartness, is a great factor of
safety because of better balance — resulting in out
standing performance, road - clinging steadiness,
greater riding comfort and security at all speeds.
SAFETY BODIES OF STEEL
The Chrysler Straight Eights are noted for their
strong steel body construction — welded into solid
walls of one-piece strength; completely insulated
for silence; no joints to cause rattles or squeaks.
