BUT IS IT PROPER? (May, 1963)
“but if you’re a smart shemale you’ll concentrate on your partner.”
This word, I do no think it means what you think it means.
BUT IS IT PROPER?
GUYS AND GALS will always have gripes about each other, still the delicate art of dating survives. Singer Mike Clifford and dancer Ginny Shepard agreed to help illustrate some of the more common gripes, ones with which they’re familiar. Ginny is 19, a ballet student since she was five, a native of Connecticut who shares a Manhattan apartment with another dancer and dreams of doing her first Broadway show. Mike’s 19, a native of Los Angeles; he’s 5’11” tall, has light brown hair and hazel eyes, is a bug on cars (drives a yellow Lark convertible) and records for Columbia.
THE LANGUAGE OF THE Homosexual (Oct, 1965)
It’s interesting that he defines “Coming out” as essentially discovering that one is gay instead of becoming public about it. I guess that this makes sense since being publicly gay in the 60’s wasn’t really an option.
THE LANGUAGE OF THE Homosexual
Homosexual slang, says this expert, is becoming an important part of our language and literature.
by Donald Webster Cory
America is a mixture of many types of speech reflecting the cultures and backgrounds of its teeming millions. One type that is widely used, though not given recognition, serves a very important function in the lives of many people. This is the language of the homosexual.
There are 2 ways in which homosexual slang is used. The first is when it is employed by the outsider or “straight” individual to describe or refer to homosexuals ar.d their activities. In this way the slang mirrors society’s disapproval and permits a person to talk of homosexuals without incurring any guilt by association.
What Three-letter Word Chills Beverages Without Killing the Taste? (Jan, 1951)
When was the last time you saw an ad for ice? Not an ice machine, or an ice cold beverage, just ice.
What Three-letter Word Chills Beverages Without Killing the Taste?
If you’ve ever been served a beverage filled with cloudy, fast-melting ice cubes and tasting faintly of yesterday’s broccoli, you know why really smart hosts and hostesses use nothing but genuine ice.
For genuine ice—the kind made only by your Ice Company—is not only hard-frozen and crystal-clear but as completely taste-free as the purest water. It is inexpensive to buy—convenient and wonderful to use.
Give Her a Hoover (Dec, 1937)
Nothing says “I love you” more than a vacuum. Well except maybe a festive plunger or toilet brush.
Though, holy crap those are expensive! In 2010 dollars the middle one would cost about $1,200. Nowadays that would get you a Dyson that rides on top of a herd of Roombas.
Give Her a Hoover
and you give her the best
Nearly 700,000 husbands have given the Hoover for Christmas
It’s the all ’round gift for all the year ’round, to make cleaning easier for every woman who owns it.
This Christmas there’s a Hoover Cleaning Ensemble for every house and house wife. It’s the new idea—rug and furniture cleaner in one ensemble. Saves her strength —easier to use —made with magnesium, one-third lighter than aluminum. Saves her time—converts instantly from rug to furniture cleaner.
SCIENCE LOOKS AHEAD TO 2000 A.D. (Mar, 1958)
The fastest speed a human being has ever traveled is roughly 25,000 mph (Apollo astronauts). Speed of light in a vacuum is 670,616,629 mph so they were only off by a factor of 27,000 or so.
SCIENCE LOOKS AHEAD TO 2000 A.D.
When a development engineer like myself looks into the future and tries to explain what he sees, he begins to sound more like a science-fiction writer than a development engineer.
By the year 2000, for instance, it is entirely possible that we may have spaceships which can travel at a speed approaching the speed of light. This would put us in a position to examine some of the fantastic implications of Einstein’s theories.
SCIENCE HAS NO NATIONALITY (Feb, 1947)
It’s true that science has no nationality, however I’m pretty sure that scientists do. It wasn’t just Nazi scientists the US gave safe harbor to. There were much worse people as well.
SCIENCE HAS NO NATIONALITY
German and Austrian scientists will soon be serving American schools, labs, and business At Wright field, Ohio, 30-year-old Fritz Doblhoff test-flies his jet-propelled helicopter for the Army Air Forces. Not so long ago he was dodging American bombs at Wiener-Neustadt. At White Sands, New Mexico, Wernher von Braun, Dr. Ernest Steinhoff, and Dr. Martin Schilling take a leading part in getting the giant V-2 rockets off into the air. Up to May, 1945, these three scientists were working in Germany on long-range, transatlantic missiles.
