Organ Grinder Monkey Always Drew A Crowd By Charlie Webb Print By TECHNICOLOR" Cii! :, TUE., WED.,JUNE 29 - JULY 2 GROWN-UP FAMILY FILM Pioneer days were someti- mes enlivened by the visits of such people as the little scis- sor sharpener with his bag of bolts and nuts, and the maga- zine salesman wearing a silk striped shirt, his pockets fill- ed with penny pencils. The most popular visitor was the monkey belonging to the or- gan grinder. Where the visi- tors came from and where they would go aRer leaving town we never knew, but each visitor would walk into town and each would walk out of town. I never understood why we were so enthused over the mon- key. We were familiar with animals, being blessed with all kind of dogs and cats -- dogs that slept under both the front and back porch, and dogs that pulled small blocks of wood at- inched to their necks by a chain to prevent escape through the wood picket fence. Some of us even kept pet squirrels and baby coons in cages made from cy- press shingles criss-crossed under drawn bamboo vine strings, under a tree in, the back yard. In the wonderful quiet of the country side, one could hear the organ grinder long before be came into view. By the time he reached the center of town, there was a large crowd fol- lowing and an equally large crowd coming from the opposite direction to meet the monkey and organ grinder. We would ask the organ grin- der the name of his monkey and whether there were many more monkeys left in the mon- key world. He never said a word, just kept grinding the little square shaped organ, while the monkey took up col- lection in a tin c'up. In those days for some rea- son most collection plates and cups when used would show a shoe button and maybe a long shanked fish hook, but not so with the monkey. Anything ex- cept coins dropped into the col- lection cup was immediately rejected by the monkey. He was alert, and maybe that's why we all loved him. Perhaps one of the many rea- sons that your friends admire you is because Xou are bum- ble, but very alert.

Phone Pete McGee 8-6561. 6-19-3tpd HELLO FRIENDS: "Hail to reason, logic and truth". Or is It out mode(l? For instance medicine: the records will show about one half million Ameri- cans die annually from cancer and heart troubles. The cost in suffering staggers the mind. The cost in dollars possibly five billion and upward. Why couldn't we appropriate a matching amount to find some- thing like penclllin to induce in the blood stream and help the body to finish the elimination of cancer or d/sensed cells. The heart: anti-cogulauls and other blood viscosity control medications we already have plus a few sophisticated reno- vations In detection, preven- tion and laymen understanding can stop the most of this waste of life and save money. This I believe. If a man is so smart, why can't he produce? The pill is powerful at one end of the ca- lender and is the new style or vogue yet surely we don't need control or elimination of life for the living. No amo~mlg, vo- lume or arrangement of words can explain or alibi our pre- sent situation and on several other programs and issues, etc, More next week if the creeks don't rise. Dan McLeod P.O.
