If life is comparatively easy and pleasant it is dangerous to settle back into cozy complacency and expect things to go along unchang- ed. Just when the rut you occupy gets so comfy it begins to feel as if were lined with eiderdown, watch out! Something unexpected is sure to happen that will probably jar you severely back into harsh real- ities. Of course, on the other hand. if the groove in which your life moves is marked with some really sharp thorns and you've become re- signed to your lot, possibly a change of any kind would be wel- come-even if it is for the worse. And an ad, for which someone had paid good money, Said: "Mo- dern Hotel, Reasonable Rats." Sometimes, newspapermen them- selves give lice considerable help in their nefarious business by writ- ing things that can be read two ways. Such as the man who wrote this headline: "Groveland man is high in egg laying contesU' Or the one who wrote: "Christmas sale of Methodist women to be held Tues- day." The man who wrote "St. Paul women are best sewers" meant well and.was reasonably accurate but he had to leave town in a hurry. * I And there was a mob scene down- Most people, and especially me, It o w n in a Middle Western city find it hard to adjust to changes,/when the local populace read: arid, for my part, changes that come / "Girls are wearing nothing but cot- as'surprises tr; a unwelcme'maller'ic As a I ton stockings for he duration." matter of fac, g" to sur- Classified advertising is a great prises.., especially parties and visitors . . But changes come and, the last few years I've learned the hard way that you cna't depend on any routine to remain constant for- ever. Especially when its smodth operation depends on human tem- peraments. To illustrate my point-- for al- most a quarter of a century I had no business responsibilities because my husband took care of them all and did such a good Job of it, I got into the habit of thinking it would alwayB be that way. Then, the rud- der (as the old fairy tale describes responsibility) was placed unexpect- edly in my hand. After some dlffi- cult adjtmtments, a new pattern of life began and became more or less satisfactory. In fact, more and more frequently the past year, the idea of retirement from my |ob has aries][- ed into my mind. I should have known better, of course, than to hope for this. Retirement, as of now, for me Is about as remote as Tibet, due to a set'of body blows from that old demon Fate. This time, they came in a heap. A week ago, our premises were well-staffed with helpers and I was out from under many of my former burdens. This delightful condition passed htto oblivion, but quick. One by one,, in ls than three days' time, otw aides began dropping out for various reasons until we are shor three men. Big city fever, a malady often afflicting country folk, and the strong arm of the law have been responsible for our major losses. Neither of these are occupational problems, thank go0diesS, and many another em- ployer has had his staff demoraliz- ed by them. Ayhoo.o-o, for the moment, The Press force is depleted to a bare skeleton (figuratively speaking, naturally) and if the paper doesn't Show the finesse it has had, please, dear readers, don't get discouraged. " Things have got to change, I just said that a few paragraphs back, In the mean time, here's a column I snatched from some place--can't recal * 'where-- showing what can happen when newspapers are op- erating with full staffs. Some of it is quite comical now, but I'll bet the editor who saw the original boner in his paper tore his hair. Aviators during World W a r II "gremlins" that caused all sorts of trouble mechanically, and some- times did some good to high-flying planes. Operators of machines of all kinds, particularly automobiles, have noticed that certain types of "bugs" develop in the mechanisms. Sometimes plumbers complain of getting a left-banded m o n k e y wrench by accident. Some ball players act s if they don't know the difference between a left-hand- ed and a right-handed bat. Newspapermen and printers are no exception to the rule. For centuries they have been bothered ' by those pesky little things called "type lice" that move or drop out letters in a word and generally change the meaning of what the man intended to say. You will know what we mean if have ever read a story that : said: "Mrs. Brown was the featured sinner at the church dinner." Of course, it should have been "singer" but those type lice did it again. In the trade we call them "typos," for short. For example, when the little devil .made one word out of two said: "Mrs. Robinson will di- the choir. Mrs. Brown will piano." (Naturally it should have been "be at the piano." Another time a West Coast head- line declared: Strange Tail of Mis- ng Pair Solved." ] field for this type of boner in news- papers. For some reason, someone always has a "roof (should be room) for rent to unmarried girl with hot and cold running water." One of the rarities was: For sale, man's large desk, secretary with drawers." This one provided an air of my- stery: "Girl who Persuaded boy to take brindle bull ts known. An- swats to name of Buster and is black with white chest." This had an air of futility, but left no doubt as to what he meant: "For sale  Baker's business; good :trade, lrge oven; present owner has been in it for seven years; good reason for leaving." One of the all-time classics ap- peared in an obituary column, of all places, and said of the deceased: "Noted for his witty remarks, he once offered this marriage advice: 'First find the girl with whom you can live in perfect harmony and good will Second, let her do as she pleases.' His widow and nine daugh- ters survive." So you see, between those little unseen bugs that plague composing machines (those intricate gadgets that convert a reporter's copy into slugs of metal containing the words) and the adeptness of some news- papermen to say two things when they meant to say only one. there is never a dull moment in the news- paper business. Just remember, if you should be the innocent victim of one of these slip-ups, it wasn't done on purpose.
