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.
“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)).
