COMMENTS MADE IN 1957

  • I’ll tell you one thing. If things keep going the way they are. It’s going to be impossible to buy a weeks groceries for $20.

  • I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies anymore ever since the let Clark Gable get by with saying “damn” in Gone With the Wind. It seems every new movie has either “hell” or “damn” in it.

  • Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won’t be long before $5000 will only buy a used one.

  • If cigarettes keep going up in price. I’m going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous.

  • Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter.

  • If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.

  • When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon.

  • Kids today are impossible. Those ducktail haircuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls.

  • If they think I’ll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it.

  • I read the other day where some scientist thinks it’s possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellow they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas.
  • Did see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It won’t surprise me if some day they will be make more than the president.

  • I never thought I’d see the day all our kitchen appliances would electric. They are even making electric typewriters now.

  • It’s to bad things a so tough now days. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.

  • It won’t be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

  • Marriage doesn’t mean a thing anymore. Those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced at drop of a hat.

  • I’m just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.

  • Thind goodness I won’t live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to congress.

  • The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

  • There’s no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $15.00 a night for a motel.

  • No one can afford to be sick anymore; $35 a day in the hospital is to rich for my blood.
