|The Office Cat
The office resembled a madhouse even more than ususal this week with Mr. and Mrs. Boss taking it easy at the Beach. Orders were being issued from all directions, aimed mostly in MY direction. The confusion didn't affect me too much, however, because all I had to do was threaten to leave, and everything promply calmed down.
My favorite trick of the week was answering the phone (when I could beat Carolyn and George and Junior to it) by saying, "Hello, Havana Herald. Do you wish to speak to the editor in chief, the production manager, the circulation department, a reporter, the make up man, the shop foreman or the janitor? Well, this is he speaking. What do you want?"
And then, if the person on the line didn't hang up immediately, thinking he had been connected with a psychiatric ward by mistake, we carried on with our conversation.
We are getting to be authorities on what to feed strange pets. Mark Morgan, having heard of our recommendations to David Burns for feeding horned toads, came in the office last week to inquire about what lizards like to eat. We again suggested insects. I am now preparing a cook book entitled "Tasty Tidbits for Temperamental Tarantulas." Most of the receipes in the book, strangely enough, have insects as their principal ingredient. That's one way to get rid of pesky flies and mosquitoes, anyhow.
And Henry McLemore, in darkest Africa, thinks he's got troubles just because he's surrounded by nine lions. He ought to visit the Herald office on some nice, peaceful Thursday.
I was relieved that no one canceled his subscription to the Herald when it became known that I was going to be the power behind the press (not literally, we have an electric motor) this week. It just goes to prove the good judgement of our readers, which is no news to THE OFFICE CAT.

|No Polio Reported In County This Year Health Officials Say
