Ransome but it’s a slap in the face to me now if you’ll excuse me I’m very tired I’m very tired of a number of things I give up I give up all right she’s right I was a bad boy [Music] cool [Applause] there’s a strange situation while other foods are being rationed words now to cut loose and fill up on eggs it seems this country has more eggs right now that it knows what to do with and a very good thing to do with them is to eat them a good reasons for this sudden surplus hens have been going all-out for victory at the same time we’re hard up for storage facilities and crates to pack the eggs in we have to keep the moving direct from hand to consumer it’s a good thing really because doctors tell us that eggs have what it takes they say we’d all be healthier if we ate them at least once a day we’re not only do I supply many of the things we mess with those steaks were not getting but they have a specialty of their own they help prevent pellagra right now because of the surplus eggs are cheaper than they’re likely to be for some time so it’s a good chance to lay up a little extra health against hard times to come personally mr. carpenter I make a practice of eating two eggs for breakfast every morning rain or shine just about to remark mr. Gildersleeve I’ve never seen you looking better I never felt better when you heard what the land said folks let’s eat all the eggs we can get all this surplus lasts because if we don’t the farmers are going to start laying off hands and when the lien season comes around again we’ll be right back where we were before yeah and that would be ridiculous Hey good night everybody [Applause] here’s a catalyst program is directed by Claude sweet he’s got a carpenter station for the kraftfoods company makers of parquet margarine and complete line of famous quality food cutter wraps invite you to listen again next week for the further adventures of the great Gildersleeve this is the national broadcasting company Kraft presents the great Gildersleeve he makers of parquet margin on the complete line of famous quality food products presents Harold Perry as the great Gildersleeve Kraft brings you the great Gildersleeve every week at this time written by John Whedon and Sam Moore we learn from the great Gildersleeve in just a moment for between-meal lunching for quick company treats for all sorts of delightful menu surprises serve tab step the delicious golden cheese food that’s so good in a hundred appetizing ways perhaps that spreads easily so you can whip up a marvelous tray of sandwiches and less time it takes to sit out a hand of bridge abs that slices neatly when chilled and that’s a great way to serve it with fruit salad or apple pie and for main dish treats halves that blends ever so smoothly and attempting Welsh rabbits light fluffy omelets and cheese flavored macaroni egg and chicken dishes they’re also wonderfully satisfying when you add PAP stets mellow cheddar cheese flavor remember Pabst Ted is a fine energy food wholesome and nourishing so look for pabst ed and they familiar round flat package and always BiPAP stet when you can tomorrow treat the whole family to Pabst Taft now let’s join our friend the great Gildersleeve who is still suffering the pangs of conscience for his momentary lapse into the arms of Lila ransom a few days ago he’s also suffering because Eve Goodwin hasn’t spoken to him since he confessed his slip we find him out home trying to gather courage the telephone let’s see I could just pretend there’s nothing wrong at all pretend the whole thing’s a bad dream well Eve I can say have you been where you been keeping yourself no good maybe I could ask her some kind of a question about my campaign a spit how to get the women’s vote no no that wouldn’t do maybe if I costume is just right you’ll have to wear it Leroy what is all this Marjorie damn stop it stop it for one at a time what is this Leroy has to take part in the maple dance at mayor 2o Leaguers picnic and eat just a minute let’s get one thing straight around here it’s not mayor to williger’s picnics is the annual outing of summer field city employees the city pays for it the invitation says that the mayor is paying for the ice-cream well the city pays the mayor what’s this bottom a pole dance school kids have to do it some idea of this good way if it’s Miss Goodwin’s idea it’s alright I want you to cooperate 100% Leroy at least hum a pole dance that’s kid stuff huh it’s not kid stuff at all by a few hundred years ago the mayor pole dance was a universal custom the peasants used to dance around the Maypole every spring grown-up peasants – well I ain’t a peasant we needn’t go into that Miss Goodwin’s putting on a maypole dance you’ll take Park Leroy just like the rest of the children I wouldn’t mind that so much but I got a special part Oh what is it I have to present the crown to the queen of the May they made me want me to wear this little Lord Fauntleroy suiting to walk up there with a crown on a pillow then I have to kneel down and present it to the queen of the may well I think that’s a very holy a supposes queen of the May Oh Ethel hammer slog Leroy you make me sick Ethel Homer Schlag is a very nice little girl oh yeah the new crumber I not only have to carnal but then I have to sit beside her on her throne I don’t even want to go to to williger’s old picnic it’s not too ill ago spic Nick and you’ll go and by George you wear that costume but these pants are too tight this suit is two years old it’s as good as new you never worn it and today you will now go upstairs and put it on for corns go Leroy excuse me skill sleeve what about lunch for the mayor’s picnic you want hard-boiled egg ye gods birdie this picnic is not the personal property of Mayor to Williger the city is paying for an outing for its employees yes sir you want hard Baldy I’m not going give the children whatever you have welcome lord I think you ought to go and watch to williger’s swelling around as if he owned the park no thank you I fixed some fried chicken hmm and some nice cucumber sandwiches mmm little mayonnaise on him Brady just a touch then I could put in some of them little baby tomatoes delicious I probably might just whip up a quick devil’s food cake mr.
