Bobby Traps Set
For Men In June

One thing the twentieth cen-
tury has yet to warn men a-
bout is the dangers of the
month of June. June is the
month of brides.

That means open season on
males of the human species.
Any man with half an eye can
see the writing on the wall.
True the camouflage is thick
with wedding gown, diamond
ring, flowers and furniture ads.
But a man with his eye to the
future will see through it all.

It adds up to brides, mar-
riages, a lifetime of—well, just
listen to the men who've al-
ready fallen.

Just ignore the temperature,
flower smells, blue skies and
love lyrics of the latest songs.
Put yourself in the place of
those pheasants you and your
friends surround each season.
Haven't got a chance, have
they? Well, take a good look
in the mirror.

What can the male do about
it? Well, he can fight a delay-
ing action—for awhile. But he
will soon find he has few
friends. His married pals will
collaborate because misery loves

The proposed father and
mother-in-law will add to the
booby traps. His own parents
will begin to see visions of
grandchildren. Everybody will
say, ''It's time you settled
down. Nothing like it.'' Every-
where he turns, the male is sur-

June leaves the male two
choices: To hold out as long as
possible or to go under fast
and gracefully. Anyway you
look at it, June is the month of

''I never smoke them. I never
smoked anything in my life.''

Stick Like A Stamp

There was a little postage stamp
No bigger than your thumb,
But still it stuck right on the job
Until its work was done.

They licked it and they pounded it
'Til it would make you sick,
But the more it took a licking,
Why, the tighter it would stick.

So friends, let's be like the postage stamp
In playing life's rough game,
And just keep on a sticking,
Though we hide out heads in shame.

For the stamp stuck to the letter
'Til it saw it safely through;
There's no one could do better,
Let's keep sticking and be true.
