A dvevtlse~.~ From where I sit Joe Marsh Mod Dogs ond Wogging Tongues The county had a "mad dog" scare last week. Phoebe Token's spaniel bit the postman, and he vowed that he was plenty mad about It. But by the time the rumor got around, it wasn't the postman who was mad, it was the dog. And before the truth was learned, half the kids in the neighbor- hood had missed school, whilo their mothers nearly died of fright. Wagging tongues can cause a lot of "mad dog" trouble. Like wagging tongues that gossip about our soldiers drinking too much around Army camps. It's just not true, as the govern. ment found out and told us. Milk and beer are among a sol- dier's favorite drinks-which is why we have the best behaved army in history. But those ugly rumors are bound to hurt mo- rale and caus~ hard feeling. From where I sit, wagging tongues can cause a heap more trouble than mad dogs. Copyright, 1945. United Sta4~ Bremen Fowtdatloa
