Are you really playing fair and square with your boy or are you cheating him in any way?

The thought came to us the other day when the mail brought a newspaper clipping from a good friend which we are reprinting for the benifit of fathers who are not acting in the fifty fifty spirit:


I left my dad, his farm, his plow
Because my calf became his cow;
I left my dad-- 'twas wrong, of course
Because my colt became his horse.
I left my dad to sow and reap
Because my lamb became his sheep;
I dropped my hoe and struck my fork
Because my pig became his pork.
The garden truck I haad to grow
Was his to sell and mine to hoe.


With dad an me it's half an half;
The cow I own was once his calf.
No town for myne, I will not bolt,
Because my horse was once his colt.
I'm going to stick right where I am,
Because my sheep was once his lamb.
I'll stay with dad--- he gets my vote
Because my hog was once his shoate.
It's fifty-fifty with dad an me,
A profit sharing company.

That's pretty good isn't it ! If the first verse happens to hit you between the eyes, you are indeed unfortunate; But if the second verse applies in your case, it makes you feel glorious.
