A liberal is usually a man who has nothing and wants to share it with everybody. Into each life some dishwater must fall.

There is not ranch f~ture ,for au office worker who conies back from lunch smelling like a radiator loaded with anti-freeze. Don't worry when you are feeling bad. It's when you arc feeling good that you make most of your ntis- takes. " BUY AN EXTRA BOND Our Adlet Colmnn helps. Try it.
