(Danbury, Conn., News-Times)

(by Maj. Gen. James B. Middleton)

4 years: My daddy can do anything.
7 years: May dad knows a lot, a whole lot.
8 years: My father doesn't know quite everything.
12 years: Oh, well, naturally Father doesn't know that, either.
14 years: Father? Hopelessly old-fashioned.
21 years: Oh, that man is out of date. What did you expect?
25 years: He knows a little bit about it, but not much.
30 years: Maybe we ought to find outwhat Dad thinks.
35 years: A little patience. Let's get Dad's assessment before we do anything.
50 years: O wonded what Dad would have thought about that. He was pretty smart.
60 years: My dad knew absolutely everything.
65 years: I'd give anything if Dad were here so I could talk this over with him. I really miss that man.
