Ducks Welcome BMOC
For 'Special' Weekend
That old, traditional greeting of
sons and daughters all over the na

private BMOC’s to the Dad’s Day

if they plan to attend. Wives are
primary needs, of children as well
as of adults. The difference lies in
the inability of children to fulfill
their own needs. The burden falls
on Dad; Dad, with Mom always by
his side helping, clothes his daugh
ter from diapers to formals, and
his son from the same modest be
ginnings to a tux.
Dad buys food ranging from
strained carrots to juicy, red beef
steak. Dad rents, builds, or buys a
house, apartment, or room in which
to keep his family warm and dry.
Chances are your Dad has done
much for you, his son or daughter,
which he would1 not have done with
out you. He has forgone fishing
trips so Sis could buy that “darl
ing dress in the Fashionable win
dow.” He has gone without a new
overcoat so Junior could buy a bi
cycle “that I’ve just got to have,
Dad’s done a lot—and he will do
a lot more. But today is Dad’s day.

be infringing on the weather man’s
right at wrong guessing.
