The Shorewood Sentinel 10 cents (handwritten) 725-2973 May 5-11, 1962 Vol. 2 No. 19 Recently, I and a good many others spent a most enjoyable two and one-half hours. Where? Well- at the Tons of Talent Show at the school, Saturday evening. The show was staged by the P.T.O. as their big fundraiser of the year. If they didn’t raise any money, they sure raised the spirits of a few hundred persons. The show, written and directed by Vivian Cypcar, was a “take off” on three television shows, Art Linkletter, Ed Sullivan, and the Miss America Pageant. The efforts of all who participated were, in my belief (sic) well appreciated by the audience. In my opinion, only one part of the show lost the attention of the people in attendance, but was hurriedly brought back with the appearance of the most beautiful “GIRLS”??? in Troy Township. Their beauty was so overpowering, the audience was in awe. Nowhere in all the world could anyone find more dazzling “beauties”. If you are in doubt at this statement, ask anyone who was there or better yet, find someone who was taking photos of them and see. Also in evidence were a few husbands and wives taking part in the show. Troy needs more of these and other activities, designed for the family as a group, as it has nothing of great interest (illegible) the community as a whole. We have our Little League for the boys, Scouts for boys and girls, but there is nothing where a family can spend an enjoyable evening out without going out of the village. All of us know a show of this sort is a great undertaking, but with all the groups there are in Troy Township, there must be a way. Thought For The Week Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way.

In Russian, it is “mati”, German it is “mutter”, French, “mere”, Greek it is “meter” and in Latin it is “mater”. Other countries, they have other ways and words to express their mother. Some speak of the Mother Country or Mother Land as the place they were born. Mother’s Day is a day proclaimed, the second Sunday in May, as the day for honoring our Mothers. Julie Ward Howe is often said to be the originator of Mother’s Day. She held an annual Mother’s Day meeting in Boston in 1872, and for several years hence. Others who took up the banner on behalf of Mother’s Day were Mary Towles Sassen in 1887, Frank E. Hering in 1904 and in 1907, Anna Jarvis began a lifetime of effort and it was she who selected the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. In 1915 the President authorized to proclaim Mother’s Day a Yearly (sic) National Observance. Have you paid tribute to your mother lately? My Mother’s Day gifts from my two sons were very simple and from the heart, and I believe these are the kind that are really the best. The first one, a fly swatter adorned with felt, buttons, and yarn in such a way as to make the face of a girl. The second, was a potted plant, a pink petunia wrapped in green aluminum foil and accompanied by a card of yellow construction paper. On this card was a red flower, (I still haven’t decided what variety), and the following verse. Dear Mother..I send this in a special way to thank you for the work and play and try to please you in every way. Your son. It may not be the best poem in the world, but he sent it and some of himself went into it. What more can a mother ask? THOUGHT FOR THE DAY IT’S NOT THE GIFT THAT COUNTS…IT’S THE THOUGHT BEHIND IT.

THE GAMBLER He was the envy of the race track gentry, as the Roebling Record describes him. He was only 30, but he knew more about the horses than any man twice his age. Folks said there was not better handicapper in the business; his mind was a veritable encyclopedia of facts about every important horse, blood lines, performances in previous races, etc. Just as important, he knew the record and the capabilities of the jockeys. In short, he knew just when to place his bets – when the odds were right and he stood the best chance to win the most money at the least risk. After a particularly successful day a the track, the men who knew the odds, got into his car to drive back to town. Traffic was moving along on the two-lane road at a respectable 50-mil-a-clip. But that was too slow for him. So he gunned her to 60 and began passing. He saw the car approaching from the opposite direction, too late. They gave him a nice funeral. One of his track pals figured the odds he took when he pulled out of at 60 this way: “30 years old – maybe 40 years to go. That’s 40 X 365 days a year with 366 for leap year makes 14,610 days, times 24 hours a day makes 350,640 hours, times 60 minutes each hour, makes 21,038,400 minutes. He tried to save five minutes. The odds? 21,038,400 to 5 – Whatta Dope.” THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK IT TAKES A HUNDRED NUTS TO MAKE A CAR….BUT ONLY ONE NUT TO WRECK IT… FIRE DEPARTMENT WOMEN’S BIRTHDAYS AUXILIARY Tommy Stafford May 26 (8) WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR David Beguin May 26 (12) YOUR RESERVATION CALLS.
