Dr. Arnold Kegel, young Chicago

Through blood tests and physi

There was some grumbling, but
the adjustment stood.

Because of his unusual mem

historian of the Wheeler country.
He recalled that Mitchell was es

One chain says they cheaner than anyone else- in
the whole country. Whew! If one could believe that
there'd be no use of anyone else trying, and this coun
try'd soon be like a lot of others we read about.
in our little sojourn of 40-orld years (not too heavy on
the "odd," folks) there hasn't yet been a line of super
humans developed, even th ovarii one is asked to believe
there has been, that is if one is expected to believe some
of the ads a few of the chain stores scribble for the bene
fit of those not so gifted (or should I say conceited) as to
believe they're super-human. Why folks, if we made
such a statement as that you'd know good'n well we
didn't believe it when we me it. That's all hooey (we
mean one firm havin' super-human ability).
Anyway we'd rather be like the folks of our own community and have them feel that
our stores were good stores to buy their food from, than to be known all over the whole
country as bein' super-human or something (accent on the something:).
I. rather suspect, though, that the chains making such statements are gifted with a larg
er portion of ego than is necessary (or maybe it's gab they've got a lot of). One of
the main reasons we don't sell everything cheaper is because we don't sell all the cheap
stuff offered for sale or should we say offered as bait.
