When we must move the hard-coal stove; I wish that you were here[" The message wakened memories Of days when, as a lad, I was compelled to answer such A summons from my dad. I well remember how we tugged Until the blamed thingstood Exactly on a certain spot As Mother said it should; And then about the time I thought I might at last retire I had to hold the bloomin' pipe While Father fixed the wire. Now, Father never said a word To sterilize his soul; I-Ie didn't think that "damn" or 'Hell" Would help him reach his goal; He grieved and And didn't cuss at all-- Unless in confidence he told His troubles to the wall. The melancholy atmosphere -) That filled that old front room While Father battled with a stove Was like the fall of doom; And yet tonight I'd like to go In answer to his call-- To see if Father still confides His troubles to the wall! ,o&.~y.3~ct,.~nA~j.npm..~ , GO EAST via one of Southern Pacific's four great Transcontinental routes; return on an- other if you choose. 775,000 FISH ARE SAVED .~ ~ _,e~l~. ~ F'ROM.
