■t ■ *////.'/> ////✓/ ' < /> /s < If you folks ever read Otto tordenkircher's ,w column . in ,.tb<? unday Star-Telegram you prob- ably noticed what he had to say about us last week. He was still making fun, in a nice sort of way, of our verse-attempts. After quot- ing our own "Rain and snow, and sleet and ice, Long, red flannels feel awful nice; Comes the sun- shine and the thaw, Darn things begin to itch and crawl." Which, we thought was good stuff when we wrote it during the severe weather of a few weeks ago, he said ' it only proved that it wasn't the heat bothering us last summer, when he first started pickin;on us* about our rhymes. To put it in his own words, here is what he said: "Comes now the sunshine and the thaw, Comes surcease from the bitter wind And raw, Comes gentle warmth, soon to Dispatch The ache from all our bones— Comes Hayley's gripe because He has to scratch." # * * Later on in the same column he called us a hit-and-run opponent, along with Con F...

— Bits o Nothing By E. E. H. Do we want world government or chaos? That is what Charles Davis of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, asks us in today's mail. In the same comunication we are given the golden opportunity to become a member of the World Govern- ment Foundation, a plan under which the world of tomorrow will be ruled by one, and only one, government. The movement has gone so far as to ask Congress to pass a bill favoring granting FDR the power to establish a World Government and further giving him "the needed authority and powers of every kind and descrip- tion without limitations of any kind that are necessary in his sole and absolute discretion to set up and create the Federation of the World, a World Peace Govern- ment under the title of the United Nations of the World—" The darn idea has us worried. In the first place, modern governmental trends have given the President more power than the Constitution in- tended; and in the second place what is Churchill's England and Russia g...

its o' Nothing By E. Information Department: If you .•e one of those who has receiv- d a cablegram showing the point jf origin to be "SANS ORIGINE" don't spend hours trying to locate such a spot on a map. There ain't no sich place. Cablegrams from members of the American armed forces at foreign points are de- livered with that date line as a matter of security to prevent any clues as to the location of Ameri- can troops from falling into the hands of enemies through inad- vertent remarks by recipients. The phrase is French, meaning "With- out Origin." Why it is not permis- sible to make the date line of such cablegrams less mysterious by using the phrase in the English translation goes unexplained. * * * Just in case you think you are suffering harships by the shortage of rubber, permit us to remind you that 58 percent of all families, or exactly 20,000,000 families in the United States own automobiles, and they, too, have heard about the tire rationing law. * * * If the War Labor B...
