Tackling Tyre ration!

 

A motorist driving through the back country of Vermont stopped at a little gas station and asked for a tankful. He remarked casually to the proprietor

I guess you fellows are all pretty sore at Leon Henderson.

Leon Henderson,? said the old timer

Who is he?

The motorist, looking at him for a moment and then thinking quickly said

Do you sell tyres?

“Sure”, the proprietor said.

“You want some?”

The motorist said, I will take four, paid his money and drove hastily away thanking Providence.

Prophet Flying with Tyre!

 

A small boy, keenly aware of the transportation problems created by rationing, was looking at a book of Bible illustrations. One of these depicted the Prophet Elijah, Ascending to Heaven in a chariot of fire. He noted the halo above the prophet’s head and cried ,

 

“Oh ,Mother, Look he is carrying an extra tyre.

Sugar Ration

 

“Does anyone here” , asked the teacher of the Night School for Adult Education, administering a vocabulary test, “know the meaning of ratiocination?”

 

“I know, said the young stenographer in the class.

It is what they are doing to sugar”.

 

((Definition of ratiocination. 1 : the process of exact thinking : reasoning. 2 : a reasoned train of thought)).
