They must The Clarendon Press have set some kind of a record for giggling! The first day Carolyn was there they got started saying, "BIossomI" for some reason that nobody recalls. Why that should have been so hilariously funny is beside the point and unexplainable, but the word and its inevitable aftermath of giggles ran into the thousand count that week. In fact, all the girls had to do was look at each other for the titters to begin, the titters became giggles, the giggles became jelly-shaking laughter, and the laughter became shrieks which left them as limp as cooked spaghettif I remember that stage in myself. 'S funny though: I remember only one instance. In my little girls musings one day it occurred to me that "me" was a ridiculously funny word. I mentioned my discovery to Geraldine (my sister), and we promptly went into paroxysms of giggles. That bit of foolishness resurfaced now and again over the years to offer diversion when we were bored.

G LAREND O1, TEXAS The Clarendon Press, October 4, Page 9 Steer This Way By noddy Klinnert Excessive exhaust noise points to a damaged muffler or exhaust pipe. Hissing may be a partially-stopped exhaust pipe or a leaking connection. The major breedes of tire trouble are underinflation, bruises and misalignment. Rapid acceleration burns up gas excessively, and a car that will give 18 mpg at 40 mph can't do better than 6 mpg in a really fast getaway. Go slower until your car warms up, too. If your radiator bolls over, let engine idle as you replenish the water, to mix the cold with the hot. Otherwise, the water you add may spurt back in your face--or crack the engine head. Keep your car properly oiled and greased. Engineers say, "Compared with the trouble it avoids, oil costs nothing." RODDY'S 66 Highway 287 East Clarendon, Texas Electric is beautiful!
