It's my fault; I didn't submit it in time. In deciding to use it last week, my editor had no alternative but to cut out all the bits pertaining to Christmas; thus giving the article rather a shoppy appearance. I first noticed it while I was reading it aloud. Since my wife vas present, I asked her opinion, . ' sying, "How did that .sound to j, ou?- Hcr-answer is too clasical s o be omitted. Shooting me a '. ilirie glance, she replied, "Like *Iack the Knife,'. sung backwards v i 1 Sanskrit, by Mr.'McGoo." Well,- I guess I asked for, f ut seriously, I'm sorry my~edi- ( br's scissors slipped when he ( ante to the part where I wished •II my readers a Merry Christmas c tnd a pleasant New-Year. I hope t's liot too Tate to extend this j yish, and to send a special 'lhanfc ! I •ou' to those kind readers wjio ent me Christmas cards. Well now^what had Hn mind j iir this week? Oh. yes, now Ii ' ;cmember! You know it has always been my ambition to'open a bank account but I never seem- 1 -.d to have enough money. I nearly did it a ycai-ago:" Yuu see,- finished up 1958 by borrowing ' lie "money to drink a toast to 1 -4959, ----â€"â€"----â€"....... â€" < I con still remember that L'.UK. -! > Vcw Yeaii'-s JA'Ci-party; it was=^»â€" I - yild .o.ns,. I guess-I was„i:fially ; 6 blame. I mean, I-just couldn't ; cc the point in borrowing money to drink to one measly little year? wJiat.wilh name on all those bits of paper and chasing around trying ;.to find co-signers and so forth. I figured if I had to go to. all that trouble, T might as well drink toasts to all the years I had missed, so I borrowed a bundle. | Well, as I mentioned, the party I U'ac a wild fine___.Theâ€"guests -Imost came to blows, trying ^o i.e'cide on a good year to begin ivith. Onq idiot suggested the | vear '65' A. D., since that was the ; vear Nero kicked his wife, 1'op-oaea, to death: thus striking the first blow towards the freedom I of henpecked husbands.

However, wcF8tJ setTle^tbT' tUBG, the year that has 'All That' after jt. as -being a good one to commence with. I has something to do with-the Battle - of Hastings, or-some other Eng-! lijl.t seaside town, if my memory â-  | serves mc well. â- _ In any case, by [ the time we got to 1-153. the I Turks were capturing Constanti-I noole, and was I glad.. Somewhere, around 1798. I was cheering my fool head off for a young. Cofsican soldier by the name of -Napoleon Bonaoarle, Who oddly.enough, was to sneak-into India bv way of Et«pt. Too many traffic lights the other wa<; I guess, j After that. I skipped, a .few _:------j_:_:_:_ years and-, would probably have emerged as the least inebriated -guest at the party if we hadn't ..come -to the year Bardot- was born. All my reserves were shot right there. '• "'-.; -------', Nineteen hilnflred' and -fifty, nine was . fast approaching, and with only seconds to go,-soVik-one switched on the.TV. We all stood poised: glasses held aloft in readiness for immediate action. - No sooner had the little 'cupid' guy conic Icaring through the calendar than someone yelled. "Happce Nuo Yeari" and -the1â€"smacking sound of colliding lips echoed through the building. We drank a toast to '59. and when the last goblet had shattered .in the fire place, the party fell flat on its' face^ W.e had run out on years, and- no one could -think-of-a-thing-to-do:------- Soon, everyone was astecp-cverydnc, that is, exctpt' myself and onfriOthc'r'stalvfArL who was Kneeling: in fhe-cerit'cr of the floor; still toasting" tlic wifc-kick-iiig Nero. ,... - '. t crawled into a "corner, with a fresh b'oltle of champagne. That was lUy moiufint.of truth. As an escape from. tliV boredom, I began subtracting the. number of bubbles, in the ,bottle, from the iiuni-. ber of dollars in the. interest on my loan.

It seemed as if I wasn't going to make it. I just didn't â-  r • sec lioW I -could possiblj* open a bank account-without money. .Then, when all appeared to bo lost, my many friends rallied-to rliy aid. Thli' gifts came pouring in ami with Ihenva sudden brainwave, I sold the gifts. ' Now, before proceeding further, 1 sliould-mcntion that, as .a cliild, one df the fitsi. things I did was to makd ii list of all the people I would distrust as'I ambled my ambitious way '.• .through-' life. Third place on that list, just below 'rumor-mongers', I award-_ cd to salesmen. '... . : -- .

Don Thomas, principal of In-gersoll District Collegiate. Institute, Ingersol, Ont., was-electcd i president of Ihe federation for i I9B0. Greater independence for trustees was urged by Dr. II. O.

The cast involves the three Lobsinger Brothers who live and attend school at Mildmay, Ont. The three brothers played juvenile for Mildmay last season and this year sought release to play in Owen Sound some 80 miles away. Mildmay still had minor teams and a new junior D team for which the boys could play. They agreed to release all three if Owen Sound moved the boys to Owen Sound and provided a job foi' one and schooling.foi- ihe others..â€" In turn Owen Sound played the boys in league games without releases aiid Mildmay in - JiiilLXe.fJlsfiri.
