Christmas Party. Somebody spiked the punch.
Well like I say, every one comes to the doings and Bessie was
there, bustier than ever. In fact, as things got on, and everything
wtrmed up, she got Rustier and Bustier. Then it haDDened. Bessie
leaned over the lighted lamp chimney for another smidgin of punch,
ijtid things being like they was lingered a mite too long. Wham, the

party broke up.
Well, we probably would never have known what happened if
in cleaning up the shambles we hadn't found the remains of this
gadget of Bessie's. It seems like you could blow this thing up, and
things would probably have been different if Bessie hadn't been
drinking the punch. As the evening wore on, Bessie sprung a leak

From the point of view of those

the timing was perfect.
Less than a month after the soo

WASHINGTON The new
Administration trend toward
lining up with the Afro-Asian
axis and letting western allies,
if necessary, go down the drain,
has caused serious debate not
only in inner Administration
circles but in diplomatic circles.
Opposition inside Eisenhower's
official family has come from
Secretary of the Treasury Hum

of Ike's closest advisers.
Gruenther, as military leader
of NATO, has always been a
stauncn supporter of western

the Secretary of State which
weakened the Atlantic alliance.
Secretary Humphrey has also

The animal, "Mitga," had been presentdd to the Danish Navy
