Page 14 GL THE OAKVILLE-TRAFALGAR JOURNAL COUNTY COMMENTARY THOSE SEWERS AGAIN! © Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Hillson joined a lost of mud spattered Milton pedestrians last week in admitting that sewer installation can be a more than somewhat an- noying business. Mr. and Mrs. Hilson lost their entire winter's supply of vegetables, stored in their cellar, when the sewer backed up and flooded the base- ment with 27 inches of raw sew- age ATTENDS OPENING ' Miss Sybil Bennett, Halton Pro- gressive Conservative candidate in the last election, assisted Mrs. George Drew in receiving as the Tory leader opened his new Ot- tawa home-over the weekend. RANGING SOUTH Convincing proof that deer are continuing to range southward was provided by several Halton huntsmen who bagged fine bucks in nearby townships where hunting is permitted. ASSESSMENT WELL UP Acton's new assessment roll, accepted last week by coun- cil, showed a new total of $2,109, 856. This figure represents an in- crease of $90,000 over last year. NEW BEGONIA A new variety of begonia,| springing from a cross bétween tuberous and fibrous species, was on display in Acton this week. The new species was discovered in the Niagara penninsula, was a highlight of the Royal Winter Fair flower show, and D. G. C. Dejong, nurseryman who develop- ed it, presented a specimen to a fair Acton visitor. FELINE DECLINE A mysterious epidemic has just about wiped out the entire feline population of Zimmerman, 'in Nelson Township, where hardly a family has escaped the loss of one or all of its cats. Cause of the malady has so far eluded ve- terinarians. e 3 DELUXE DICTIONARY 1¢ the publishers of modern dic- tionaries could bring themselves around to streamling their defin- jtions to meet the format of one recently submitted to a well known American publisher, one can't help but feel that these huge tomes would not only be more informative but also much more entertaining. Here is_ the an- onymous contribution, which seems to cover the subject very, very thorough BOY: After a male baby has grown out of long clothes and tri- angles and has acquired pants, freckles, and so much dirt that relatives 'do not care to kiss it between meals, it becomes a BOY. A boy is Nature's answer to that false belief that there is no such thing as perpetual mo- tion. A boy can swim like a fish, run like a deer, climb like a squir- rel, balk like a mule, bellow like a bull, eat like a pig, or act like a jackass, according to climatic conditions. He is a piece of skin stretched over an appetite. A noise covered with smudges. He is called a tornado because he comes at the most unexpected places, and leaves everything a wreck behind him. He is a grow- ing animal of superlative promise to be fed, watered, and Kept warm, a joy forever, a periodic nuisance, the problem of our times, the hope of a nation. Boys faithfully imitate their dads in spite of all efforts to teach them good manners. A boy, if not wash- ed too often and kept in a cool, quiet place after each accident, will survive broken bones, horn- ets," swimming holes, fights, and nine helpings of pie. Recipe for Health! Milks a real boon to baking . . . because it makes every- thing taste better and because it contains so much food value! Use milk for better cooking and better health! Eoety Day, L. G.

"Shops are loaded down with merchan- dise, and most people have more money than usual at this time of year," the chief explains. So keep a keen lookout for light- fingered gentry, or those who try to sell you gold bricks or stocks of a questionable nature. By Jim SHIRLEY IMPRESSES G.B.S. In one of the amusing scenes in Colin Miller's comedy, "A Kiss For Corliss," star Shirley Temple reads a very dramatic passage from ome of George Bernard Shaw's plays to a friend. After the scene was shot Shir- ley reminisced with her co-star, David Niven, about her one and only contact with the celebrated man of letters. When she was at her height as a child star, a stu- dio représentative attempted to get G. B. Shaw to make one of his famous quips about little Shirley. He was asked, as a starter, if it would not be interesting to meet her. "Well," remarked Shaw, "after hearing about the kind of money this child star earns for her stu- dio, I would say that I'm sure I might learn a trick or two from her. But what could she possibly learn from me?" hi more than a year. Nelson, after completing without a break 'Tea "Lullaby of Broadway."
