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

    "His Majesty Mogs"

    Augustus Conway, who regarded himself as somewhat of a psychologist, during the summer, gave up hopes of ever reconciling with his wife, Lee, who blamed him for the loss of one child, and her ability to have any others, so he now focussed on his children during each return from his visits to various parts of the Conway business and charity empires.

    He shared with Lee the desire to keep the marriage together for the sake of the three-year-old twins, Winston, and Winifred, so she generally went along with him as he concentrated on spending as much time with them when home, as possible, she, of course, as most mothers do, having the main burden of child-rearing, anyway.

    While Augie was home, he spent as much time as he could with his children, instructing them, playing with them, and chaperoning their viewing of television.

    If he'd had his druthers, he wouldn't have let television in the house considering it a waste of everybody's time, but Lee was so withdrawn and apathetic these days, that t.v. was one of the few things that she seemed to look forward to. He'd heard the joke that television was a great baby-sitter - he would have added that it pacified sullen housewives, too

    Since he was away from home so much, these days, he worried that his wife, now so different from the bustling, dynamic, practical woman whom he'd married, would let the kids have their way too much, so he had hit upon the idea of having a pet for the children to be responsible for, in the shape of a Persian kitten.

    Augie was used to cats, his own parents believing in having them about the house when he was little, and he always named successive cats "Mogs" as the years drew on, and the felines came and went . This male kitten was extra special though, it was huge, energetic, and lordly to the extent that Augie christened him " His Majesty Mogs"

    At first, as he expected, his little girl, Winifred, took over the feeding and care of the cat, as becomes a young female with mothering instincts, but as time went by, when he returned from trips, he, with his fresh eyes, and deep interest in the relationship between his children with their pet, themselves, their mother, and himself, noticed that "Winnie's " interest faded as the cat grew bigger, and less lovable, and that it was the boy, "Sonny", indifferent to the animal at first, who now chivvied either Lee or his father into opening a can of liver - all that the finicky "H.M.Mogs" would consider.

    While Augie heaved a sigh of regret that his little daughter was so fickle, he was gratified that his normally selfish and self-centred son was displaying some responsibility, and empathy with a dumb animal.

    The father was puzzled, however, why the cat displayed no affection for the lad; normally the cat would perch upon the knees of anyone sitting down, whoever was handiest, Lee, Augie, Winnie, or himself...but never Sonny.

    Augie discovered why one day when he came unexpectedly on Sonny teasing the cat...tweaking its tail and stroking its fur the wrong way.

    The disillusioned father sighed again. His wife was hostile, his daughter an airhead, his son a sadist...what a family for a man!

    The London " Daily Mirror"

    June 30th 1972

    Milestones of the month

    by Chatty Cathy

    Let's get the worst news of the month out of the way, first.

    There was a heart-rending picture by an Associated Press photographer, published this month, of a naked, agonized, nine-year-old Vietnamese child running toward the camera after being burned by napalm. It is to be hoped that the photographer - who will probably win some kind of award for taking this devastating photo - and others, was able to succour and comfort the poor kid.

    It is incidents like this that makes me rethink what I wrote last month about the good guys having to stay ahead of the madmen in devising the deadlier weapon. There is no doubt that the prospect of being sprayed with this stuff that sets fire to one, is quite a deterrent to militant mischief making, but nobody, even the worst of people, should be subjected to that inhuman punishment.

    Another event that got home to this writer, personally, was when more than a hundred happy London holiday makers, off on a jaunt to the West Country dying when their jet airliner crashed shortly after take off from London Heathrow Airport. There but for Fate or whatever, go me and my Chap who regularly take the same flight every year on our summer hols.

    Enough of all that; now for something positive about aircraft - of all thing a hi-jacking, when seven men and three women hijacked a plane from Communist Czechoslovakia to the freedom of West Germany
    https://www.google.ca/search?dcr=0&q...w=1264&bih=649

    More bad news for Russia when West Germany's soccer team beat the USSR national team 3–0 to win the 1972 European Football Championship.
    After Moscow Dynamo's loss to the Scots last month, the Ruskies must be having an inferiority complex.

    We Brits, on the other hand can get a bit of a boost when our own Graham Hill co-drives with Frenchman Henri Pescarolo to win the 1972 Twenty-Four Hours Le Mans race.

    Just in time for the American presidential election this year, a new political party came on the scene in June. The first United States' Libertarian Party National Convention is held in Denver, Colorado. May that party grow and prosper...the Yanks could do with something to shake up those same old Democrats and Republicans.

    The latter must be shook up anyway because five White House aides were arrested in June, by the F.B.I. , the five being accused of burglarizing the offices of the Democratic National Committee in the Watergate complex. How is "Tricky Dicky" Nixon going to work his way out of that one?

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

    The "San Diego Clarion"

    August 1st 1972

    Gomez goes

    by Al Terego

    It is no surprise that heads are finally rolling after the abysmal performance of the San Diego Padres since their expansion days. Along with three veteran players who have been less than productive this year, Preston Gomez, the team's first head coach was fired yesterday by Dan Conway, the team's general manager.

    "We realized changes had to be made to turn this team around..." Mr Conway explained in yesterday's press conference which he called "...and letting go some players nearing retirement, anyway, along with a change at the top, we thought, might start the Padres moving onward and upward. We're grateful to Preston for the hard work that he's put in. and dedication which he's displayed in trying to get this team out of the doldrums, and it's certainly not his fault that we're still there"

    Mr Conway went on to announce that Don Zimmerman, an assistant coach, with the Padres, will now take over the team, with the press scrum ending with the news that he has traded four players to the Kansas City Royals for short-stop Larry Bowa who has been hitting regularly(BA .269) and fielding reliably (FA .976) so far this season.

    Once again, the Royal's manager, Chet Lemon, has gotten the better of that vaunted horse-trader, Dan Conway, in a deal, for the catcher going from here to Kansas is the back-up, Andy Tate, so recently acquired, undrafted, from Canada, and so admirably filling in for the wounded Joe Azcue, Tate with a brilliant record of BA .372, OB+S .948 with two homers in a mere 13 game stint with the Padres. Fortunately, Joe is almost sound again, and hopefully will continue to be the solid backstop that we've come to know.

    The other three players leaving the Padres, short stop Jerry Adair, third baseman Clete Boyer, and second baseman Chico Salmon, were all popular with the fans, sure-handed in the field, but unable to do much with the bat, this season, and as all but Salmon were in their Thirties, it wasn't likely that they would improve.

    Preston Gomez is the first management casualty of this team's ineptitude...if the Padres don't soon start leaving the bottom of the National League West, others will surely follow - not excluding Mr Dan Conway !

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

    The London "Daily Mirror"

    July 31st 1970

    Milestones of the month

    by Chatty Cathy

    The thrust and counter thrust between the I.R.A. and the British army was the main feature of this month.

    The Irish retaliated for "Bloody Sunday" with a " Bloody Friday" of their own, planting 22 bombs in Belfast, killing nine people, and injuring another 130, as well as a "Bloody Monday" when three car bombs went off in Londonderry, killing another nine people.

    The Brits countered that with "Operation Motorman" a sweep by the Army aimed at to regaining control of the "no-go areas" established by the Irish Republican paramilitaries in areas of Belfast, "Free Derry", and Newry.

    Another problem arrives on the Heath government's plate with a dock strike in the U.K.

    I bet President Nixon wishes he could swap problems with Ted Heath, he's now got the prospect of facing Senator George McGovern, who urges the immediate and complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from South Vietnam, the Democratic National Convention in Miami Beach nominating him for President along with Senator Thomas Eagleton as his running mate.

    Nixon is also up against the shapely and popular actress Jane Fonda who is touring North Vietnam, during which she is photographed sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. The more rabid right-wing media is dubbing the lady, protesting against the war, "Hanoi Jane"

    Those peace-loving Canadians are staging a campaign of their own, the ketch ''Greenpeace #First", flying the Greenpeace banner, collided with the intervening French naval minesweeper ''La Paimpolaise'' while in international waters, to protest French nuclear weapon tests in the South Pacific. It is unclear, on the damage and/or casualties, but one has to admire these unarmed environmentalists for going up against French naval might..

    Well there's going to be some peace in the East, following Pakistan's surrender to India in the Indo-Pakistani War begun in 1971, both nations now signing an historic " Simla Agreement", pledging to settle their disputes peacefully. Also conducive to peace in the Middle East was Egypt's Anwar Sadat expelling 20,000 Soviet "advisors" from his country this month.

    The first "Rainbow Gathering" is held in Colorado.The original Rainbow Gathering was in 1972, and has been held annually in the United States from July 1st through 7th annually, on National Forest land. This gathering draws tens of thousands after a year in which regional and international gatherings are held in the United States and in many other places around the world.

    This first Rainbow Gathering of the Tribes, a four-day event was organized by youth counterculture "tribes" based in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. Twenty thousand people encountered police roadblocks, offered civil disobedience, and were, eventually allowed onto National Forest land.

    Those nutty Yanks have actually arrested comedian George Carlin for public obscenity, after he recited -during Wisconsin's Summerfest -his "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television". We can't repeat those words in this family newspaper, but one can hear far worse language on Brit "Gritty , Kitchen-sink " television. dramas. Over Here, right?.
