    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    Learning Qwerty

    During August 1963, in London, England, Augustus Conway, now an English teacher at Bromley College, asks his mother for the loan of her typewriter.

    “Sure, Son....” Lynn Carroll readily assented “...soon as I’ve finished this editorial for the ‘Telegraph’. What’s with the typing, anyway? You’ve never been interested, before”

    “I’m going to write an episode for ‘Somers - of the Yard’...It's a good time for it, school being out for a month “ for a would-be first-time author, Augie seemed astoundingly matter -of -fact, as if he had been churning out published stuff for years, like his celebrated parents, but that, Lynn reflected, was her genius son all over. Like his twin, Gussie, now doing her own esoteric thing, over in America , achieving the impossible was routine, performing the miraculous -getting people to actually bbbuy what you’ve written - requiring a bit more effort.

    Lynn, a habitual critic, sniffed. “Bit pedestrian, for you, isn’t it , Dear?...” she suggested “Police pot-boiler...under achieving”

    “Essays before epics, Mother... “ quipped her son like any writer of gritty prose, who waxes flowery in everyday speech “...I have to learn to walk before I run”

    “I think the first thing to learn m’Lad...” Lynn assured him “...Is how to type...just an hour-long thingy on the telly requires umpteen pages of script, and your beginner’s hunt 'n’ thump method of typing, is going to slow you down and cheese you off, eventually. Why don’t I teach you how to touch type? you’ll work so much faster...it’s like speed -reading...which your Dad and I also taught you, remember?”

    Ever co-operative and amenable to his mother's solid advice, Augie agreed to learn touch-typing from the written instructions which his prolific mother, giving an excellent example of the merits of touch typing, rattled off like a Bren Gun on her Olympia portable, and in a few minutes, was able to hand him a sheet of neat, close -written text.

    "It's all there, Aug..." she assured him "...study that, and practice looking at your copy, and not having to peer at your keyboard, and you'll get on like a house on fire" Being a whimsical Canadian matron, she now burst into a parody of a popular song "Novels by the number..." her son, himself an English eccentric, dutifully picking up the cue and supplying "...Saga's by the score" Thinking quickly she warbled the next improvised line "...Soon, my Lad, you're typing quick.." and almost in unison they finished with "...and makin' dough, galore"* grinning at each other after this typical witty exchange between the Conways and their grown children, they set to work to teach Augie how to touch-type.

    It didn't take much of the mentor's time, her bright son being such a quick study; after a few demonstrations of how her own fingers were able to move smoothly and easily over the keys without her even looking at them, Lynn felt able to leave her son to it, while she took her youngest, Valentine, also out , as a pupil, on a month-long break from school, to Hyde Park, as she'd promised him.

    After a few perusals of the written instructions left by his mother, and many stabs at the keyboard, Augie discovered that touch-typing was much like playing the piano, whilst reading the music. After a while, your fingers reached for the appropriate piano key of their own volition, the player didn't have to look for them, and the Qwerty keyboard of a typewriter didn't have nearly as many keys to find as did his own Steinway piano.

    After a while of diligent practice, Augie was able to fire off several lines of the traditional test-piece for all touch tyrpists "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" keeping his eyes on the keyboard, and his fingers on, mostly, the right keys.

    "Touch -typing...?" he scoffed to Mrs Harris who'd just come in on Lynn's instructions, to refresh the struggling author with a cup of tea , "Piece o' cake, Nan!"

    *From a popular song at that time “Heartaches By The Number”

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    Red for danger

    August 25th 1963

    Gussie phones Red Rolfe early in the morning

    Gus: Hi Red...I got the VW for my birthday.

    Red: Good on ya, Kid...but you drive it now, okay? I'm too tall for comfort.

    Gus: But Dad hired you to chauffeur me, as well as protecting me, you know.

    Red: Well, I won't tell him if you don't...you're not complainin' are you? You know you like to drive.

    Gus: So why didn't you ever let me drive your Chevvy once I got my licence?

    Red: Because I also like to drive...but not in a little pill box like your Bug, with my knees up to my neck...I'm over six feet, y'know. So, you ready to roll?

    Gus: Yep, to the office as usual, see what gives, then out and about to deal with whatever.

    Red: Wear something cool, Kid ...hotter than Hades out... okay then, I'll come round in the Chevvy, park it at your place, then stretch out in your back seat while you drive the daily round, the common task.

    Gus: (Mischievously) Stretch out?...you mean sleep?

    Red: You kiddin me?.... that's the last thing your old man pays me for...he'd have my goolies for golf balls.

    Gus: (Giggles)Knowing you, Red, I wouldn't be surprised if you have goolies.

    Red: I'm full of surprises, Lady...see you in ten.

    LATER, ON THE ROAD

    Red: Keep it down, Gussie! Another reason I don't let you drive mine...your goddam lead foot...

    Gus: Thus speaketh the ex-cop...but this has to be the quietest road in Christendom, Red...nowt, but the odd farm cart, and I can't remember when I last saw ...hallo, talk of the devil...there's one stopped ahead.

    Red: So go real slow past 'em, Red...you know farm folk...they or their beasties are apt to wander under your wheels.

    Gus: Looks like they've got trouble...the old boy scratchin' his head over his engine...his wife in the cab prob'ly givin' him a hard time. I'm gonna pull over, see if they need a hand.

    Red: Don't expect any help from me, Kiddo...you're smart with engines, I'm purely a driver , not a -(Suddenly urgent) No, don't stop Gussie!...go like a bat outa Hell! (Thirty seconds later) Good gel! Nine outa ten women woulda queried that call, wasted vital seconds

    Gus: (Excited) You see that, Red? That sweet old lady, she fired something after us as we shot past.

    Red: Yeah, she was after your tires in desperation...you speedin' up, caught her off guard, well outa range of her twelve-guage.

    Gus: That what it was? I guess that was a kidnap thingy, right?

    Red: You betcha, Kiddo...amazin' that nobody's tried it before.

    Gus: Don't kid a kidder, Red, you know that there have been several attempts to isolate me over the years, but you never let it happen...the smooth talkers got too close, you gave 'em that tough cop look, and they faded back into the woodwork.

    Red: And you were never chopped liver, Girl, wish all vulnerable rich kids were as vigilant as you've been over those years. Stop at the next place we come to, I'll phone in that cart's plate, let the Highway Patrol deal with them. They won't get far, rattletrap like that, too, I saw a coupla cows in it as we shot past

    Gus: Good idea, though, wasn't it, Red? Give 'em A for inspiration, and they did their homework. I've got this rep for being a sucker for anything to do with farming, old couple broke down, their cattle suffering in this August heat...a cinch that I'd pull over, gettin' us both under their gun. What tipped you?

    Red: I'm always suspicious of any approach to you...'sides the old boy over-acted, made too much of that head-scratching bit...very stagey

    Gus: So, another near miss....wonder if we'll ever fall for it? Always a chance while Daddy's got the dough

    Red: No chance at all, Kiddo...not while you got all them house systems that your father had installed, with me got your back on the outside.

    Gus: Alarms for safety at home...Red for danger on the road...

    Red: 'Sides, even if they caught us, we'd think of something, couple o' smart women like us!

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    September 1963

    Outlining Chapter 9 of Sandy Gobbi's biography of the Conways

    Selected abridged chapters of which, are appearing in Miss Gobbi's own newspaper "The Bronx Cheer" preparatory to the book's publication, next year.

    "Oh, Those Conways!"

    I was about to write that Dan Conway is generous to his family and friends, except that he has no discernible friends.

    Outside of his family, the late Colonel Robert McCormick was Conway's lord and master, Ross Tarreg and KoKo Kwalizima were his proteges', Frank Norman, his assistant General Manager a mere colleague; certainly, Conway has squired various women, but since he, himself, has declared that platonic friendship is impossible, ergo, there will always be a sexual element in any male-female relationship, he has no women "friends", either.

    But it must be said that what Dan lacks in warmth to outsiders, he makes up for towards his own family, even the estranged one, his former wife, Lynn Carroll, the well-known Canadian writer and British Television personality.

    Lynn, is also a shrewd businesswoman in her own right, but her well of riches was first primed by hubby Conway during the first blissful years of their marriage, they meeting before the war, wedding during it, she staying in England to write for a London newspaper, the "News Chronicle", whilst Dan went off with the ill-fated British Expeditionary Force, from which, Conway, himself, had to be rescued by that same intrepid spouse, Lynn,who brought him and some other soldiers back from Dunkirk, for which daring exploit she was awarded the George Cross (the most prestigious British medal that a civilian can receive).

    During the war, she bore Dan three children, remarkable twins, Augustus and Augusta - guess what was the month of their birth? - then later a rather more mundane lad, with more bizzare Christian names, Julius Ceasar, born in March - get it?. (for people who pride themselves on their common sense, Mr and Mrs Conway, showed little foresight when christening their children...one can just imagine the taunts directed at the Conway kids by their schoolmates in later years) Whatever one thinks of the Conways, man and wife, one has to admit of their high intelligence, but their first born "Gussie " and "Augie", border on genius whilst "Jacy" - thank heaven for nicknames- ... is reputed to be extremely street-smart. More of the Conway children in later chapters.

    Dan Conway expressed his gratitude to his wife for both his exotic three children, and her rescue of him from Dunkirk, by cutting her in on the fortunes he was making before he left Britain in the late 'Forties. Lynn Carroll has a considerable stake in Scottish T.V. for which she appears , quite often besides "Auntie BBC", besides owning her own line of restaurants; launderettes; travel agencies; and hairdressing salons.

    All this beside top salaries paid her by the "Chronicle" (from which she's recently absconded to the conservative "quality" newspaper, the "Daily Telegraph"), and the British Broadcasting Corporation. Too, she's reputed to be a shrewd investor, as is her ex-husband, Dan. Either that, or because of their journalistic professions, they can obtain inside knowledge.

    But Conway Heaven couldn't last. As previously related, Dan couldn't stand post-war Britain whilst Lynn loved it - though there are current whispers of her disillusionment with today's polarized, class-conscious country which, somehow, can't seem to get it right - so never the twain should remain...hubby took an indefinite leave of absence in his native America, whilst Lynn stayed in Blighty with the three kids.

    They remained married in name only, until trouble arose between them over one of those same children resulting in a bitter custody battle, even whilst they were still man and wife!

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    Alistair Cooke broadcasts his BBC progamme "Letter from America" on November 28th 1963

    They buried John Fitzgerald Kennedy in Arlington Cemetery yesterday; he had earned his place in this American military burial ground, not because he had been President of the United States, but because he had served his country in World War Two.

    So ended one of the most tragic and eventful chapters in the History of the United States. The drama really began when a Senate committee on the very day that Vice-President Johnson was destined to become President, himself, began hearings. That committee heard Lyndon Johnson named as the recipient of a $100,000 payment, allegedly to help facilitate the signing of the General Dynamics TFX contract.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Lyndo...A-WqjQO51b2YCg
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=the+s...CNTWjwOS4byAAg


    Within a few more hours, no more was heard of this allegation; how can a brand-new President be further investigated? Certainly not in today's America. Not when a bigger investigation was afoot, into the Kennedy assassination, for the theories about this shocking event are many and varied.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Theor...CcHh0gKNjbigBQ

    Was Lee Harvey Oswald the real assassin? If so, who, if anyone, was behind him? What sort of President will Johnson be? Will he end the war in Viet Nam? Will he make friends with Kruschev, as Kennedy was trying to do? Will he ease up on Cuba as his deceased predecessor was, reportedly contemplating?
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Lee+H...GsTk0gKsyqTwBw

    After the tumult and the shouting has died, and JFK's funeral is over, and a new president speedily in place, the question is, Ladies and Gentlemen, wither now these United States, and thereby, the world? Good night.

    Uproar in October

    by Chatty Cathy

    Canada's Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, is going to go bonkers when he reads this, from a reliable source. (The man, reputedly, is a human pepperpot with the lid loose, at the best of times).
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Canad...Mty4jAPIk7bgCQ

    American Defence Secretary. Robert McNamara, during a cabinet meeting advised his President, John F Kennedy "We need a way to get out of Vietnam." It is then alleged that McNamara proposed to replace the 16,000 United States " advisors" with Canadian personnel. Those peace-loving polite Canadians to fight America's war? No fear!
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=+%22W...Hpa4jwP7tpz4Cw

    It seems that West German Chancellor Adenauer has been grumbling about that same Canada shipping grain to Soviet Russia, in the natural course of trading (for Russian oil, presumably - although a thinly populated vast country- a mere 19,000,000 at last count - Canada is big on cars). Is this the old Nazi anti- Bolshevism raising its ugly head, again? No wonder Nikita Kruschev is so nervous you can hear his sabres rattling; with friends like these of a Western bloc already mob-handed with nuclear weapons, that might explain why Nikita is so stroppy with the West

    A couple of significant resignations from high places this month, one honourable, another, less so. Our own P.M. Harold Macmillan left 10 Downing St to his successor Sir Alec Douglas-Hume in October, ill health being the main reason - Supine Mac, in fact, lies in hospital, as I write, but the fuss over the Profumo affair, and a run of economic bad luck didn't help his reputation as Britain's best peace-time Prime Minister since the war.

    Sir Alec is mainly famous for famously giving up his noble status - he used to be Lord Home, in order to be eligible to lead the House of Commoners. A decent bloke, but I doubt if he'll be much of a P.M. after the flamboyant SuperMac.

    The Yanks have a Profumo -like scandal of their own to handle. The downfall of their politicians seems to be money, rather than poontang like ours, despite our reputation for "No sex, please, we're British"

    Last month investigation was begun by the Republican Senate Rules Committee into the business and political activities of a Democrat Secretary, Bobby Baker. to the, then, Majority Leader(Lyndon Johnson).
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Secre...AoKMjwOnr5rYBQ

    Baker was being investigated for allegations of bribery and corruption, using money allocated by Congress and arranging sexual favors in exchange for votes and government contracts. Criticized increasingly, Baker resigned as the current Vice-President, Lyndon Johnson's main man.

    While we shake our heads over the folly of some Americans, we should look to our own penchant for hysteria over flash in the pans like the Beatles, since their successful American tour, and their recent gig at the London Palladium , they are now being hailed as the "fab four" and the Second Coming in the form of "Beatlemania"

    No wonder the rest of the world regards us now, as a second rate country, if we all go over the top for a quartet of layabout druggies, who badly need haircuts.

    It's a mad world

    by Chatty Cathy

    Someone (Thomas Middleton) once wrote "It's a mad world, my masters" I'm sure that he must have been referring to ours in these 'Sixties. Why else would we, besides exploding bigger, dirtier, deadlier, atomic devices all over our planet, stand for a bigot like Governor George Wallace to use his police and militia to stop young children from going to school?

    Why would the two leaders of the world's so-called "Super Powers" get together to talk about teaming up to, and enormous expense of time and toil, send a man to a barren, useless, uninhabitable piece of real estate like the moon?

    Why should Britain, and now America, go daft over four teenagers, more notable for their private lives than their music, our media writing scads of drivel over them singing soppy songs like "She Loves You" and "I Wanna Hold Your Hand"?

    Why finish building a dam -at Glen Canyon on the American Colorado river - which is going to create a Lake Mead, a few days after it was reported that a lake in Italy was emptied by a landslide, flooding the adjacent terrain, and killing between three and four thousand people?

    Why did the American administration boost the Federal minimum wage to a dizzying $1.25 per hour? - in Britain that would work out for a resteraunter having to pay his dishwashers and bus boys ten quid a week! - at a time when the U.S. population was announced at being 190 million people? Who is going to employ that lot at those job-killing rates?

    Besides being barmy, the world continued to be nasty; the new confederation of the Malay states is bitterly contested by neighbouring Indonesia, and the Army generals in the Dominican Republic booted out newly elected president, Juan Bosch, who planned to reform the sugar plantations owned by the generals.

    There was one ray of enlightenment in the world during September, the U.S.A. getting together with Britain and the Soviet Union in limiting nuclear testing.

    Better late than never, People, though better they had never started it.
