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

    Late February 1967. Dan visits his mistress, Consuela Kwalizima.

    They greeted each other affectionately enough, but then each thought there was somethhing lacking in the moment; to Dan, his warm, and obliging sexual partner seemed rather cool and reserved; the woman sensed that her man, lately returned from covering the war in Viet Nam, was preoccupied -in any event she had an instant beef with him.

    "Dan !..." she exclaimed "...you stay away so long"

    He repressed a sigh "Hon, I thought we'd been all through that on the phone...." He released his embrace of her too readily, she thought "...It was all happening in Viet Nam... and I had to be there"

    "Perhaps for your newspaper...? " Consuela's general unhappiness was making her a little mean "...but not for me and the boys?"

    Dan looked around expectantly "Hey, where are the boys?...we could go catch the grapefruit game at Shibe"

    "How soon you forget, Dan..." she reproved him "...you show no interest...they are at school in Florida...where my parents are"

    "Jeez, right..." Dan metaphorically slapped himself "....I forgot your Mom and Pop retired there this winter.. see, there's so much stuff goin' on..." He set about making amends, although he could not help feeling resentful that his lover had no interest in baseball so that they could both attend the game at Shibe stadium. "...so what do you wanna do, today, Hon, now that I'm back?"

    "I don' care..." she responded sulkily, stepping away from him "...you will decide like always"

    "Okay..." with an effort, Dan maintained patience "...what say I take you out to dinner at Carrio's, that Spanish joint you like so much?"

    "A treat now and then, is not enough, Dan Conway..." Consuela thoroughly annoyed , now, that Dan affected not to notice her displeasure, burst forth in a display of Latin temperament "..if you loved me you would stay here, more"

    "But, I do love you..." he reasonably pointed out "..and I would stay more if I could" he shrugged then grinned "...But this old world goes round and around, and I gotta go with it"

    That happened to be a line from the latest comic song that his daughter, Augusta, had recorded during her enforced absence, through injury, at baseball. The song had really caught on with the listening public, anyway, but Dan, characteristically, had tried to ensure its universal popularity by bribing various disk-jockeys to plug Gussie's version of it. Consuela was as familiar with it as any, and usually enjoyed the catchy tune, and witty lines, provided by Gussie's twin brother, Augie. But today, Consuela used the family-engendered song to beat their father with.

    "Ha !..." she exclaimed "...Your children's song...always your children...never me and mine!"

    Dan was puzzled "What are you talking about?...you know I love you...and I dote on the boys"

    "But you are never here, Dan..." She exploded " ...jus' like today ...you drop in for a little dovey-lovey in my bed, then Bam, Ma'am, thank you!" Indignation wasn't improving her English usage any.

    Dan was ready to concede a point "Sure, the sex hasn't been all that great, lately, but I put that down to me, gettin' on in years..." It was then he realized that an unhappy Consuela had been working up to this confrontation for some time, and that he had nothing to lose by laying further bad news on her "...But I'm afraid it's not gonna get any better, Hon..." He pulled the official letter from his pocket " I heard from the Army today...they want me to go back to 'Nam in the Fall, when the baseball season is over, for another stretch as a war correspondent"

    Another month, another money-maker

    by Chatty Cathy

    A gold mine. THat's what they're calling the gas-processing plant at Easington, Yorkshire which has just begun operating . In time, the natural butane from the North Sea-bed won't need a force of wage -earning miners to wrest the dirty, gritty , unhealthy coal from the ground to create gas to light our lamps, or heat our ovens, just a few technicians to watch dials and press buttons. It's the fuel of the future, People, and it's going to turn our anemic British economy right around.

    I hear that Joe Stalin's own daughter, Svetlana Alliluyeva, has now defected - to the United States, of all places! Pity she didn't do that while the nasty old tyrant was still alive...might have made all the difference to this Cold War.

    Some of those responsible for the ghastly thalidomide scandal which wrecked the lives of 150,000 malformed babies have been brought to account . Nine top dogs of the German pharmaceutical outfit, Grunenthal, are up on charges of flouting Jerry's own drug laws

    To underline the cleanliness and environmentally-benign natural gas now being brought ashore from Britain's ever beneficent sea, we've had a nasty oil spill off of Cornwall's pristine South Coast. The super tanker Torrey Canyon, in trying to avoid ramming a fishing-vessel, ran aground in the Scilly isles, in March, traditionally a windy month, and subsequent gales helped to break the fully-laden mammoth completely up, dispensing all its nasty, sticky, deadly oil to the seas, which will eventualy lap at our shores. Despite the ingenious efforts of planes from the R.A.F. and Fleet Air Arm, in firebombing the spill, in order to turn the ocean -polluting slime aflame, and then into air-polluting carbon, it is feared that flower and fauna, all along our Southern coast will be smothered in deadly black goo.

    Charles Manson, the notorious leader of the gang which murdered Sharon Tate, the film actress, and others, didn't want to leave prison, he said, it being like home to him, now. The real news is, why is this killer being released at all? Why hasn't he been executed? As he did his defenceless victims?

    And in the "David slays Goliath" department, I have to report that Queens Park Rangers beat top-dog West Bromwich Albion to become the first 3rd Division side to win the English Football League Cup. Not that impressive, really, that Cup is just a make-work effort to create a little excitement in the dog -days when the ***Rreally important F.A. and League Championships have been decided.
    Nobody in soccer takes these subsidiary makeweight competitions seriously.
