A GOOD SPEECH WRITER IS HARD TO FIND

Tell us how you would explain your decision to abstain from voting Tuesday to someone reared in an Iron Curtain country.

Color me saddened that once again the political candidates didn't get what they wanted -- a writer who can put promises in a speech that no one will remember after Tuesday.

Color me dismayed by the Bills super fan who said: "We know Jim Kelly won't go into politics. If he threw his hat into the ring, it would be intercepted."

Say a prayer for our guys Over There.

Rate your friend an American history expert, Bob Sikorski class, if she can give you the real name of Axis Sally.

Sikorski advises that the Miagara Frontier Radio Reading Service will have its Comic Strip Art Auction on Nov. 9. Many nationally known comic strip artists have sent signed work to this affair, which does so much to help others.

Color me intrigued by Jim (Entertainment Weekly) Mullen's comment on the new O.J. trial: "They dismissed one juror after a day. His book should be out any time now."

It would be interesting to see if Simpson has inspired more jokes than Clinton or Dole.

Rate your friend a movie expert, Frank Deni class, if she can name the first actress to sing on the screen.

Deni reports that the annual Barnabite Fathers Founders Awards Dinner will be staged at Salvatore's Italian Gardens on Saturday night, with Mr. and Mrs. Carl Montani getting a top honor.

Color me intrigued by Don (NBC) Ohlmeyer's comment on baseball: "This is a sport where you get 10 days for spitting on a ball and five days for spitting on an umpire."

Rate your friend a football expert, Vince Letro class, if he can name the All-America quarterback with the initials Y.A.T. who never played pro ball.

Letro, Olean's unofficial city greeter, will host the annual fun-filled Election Day celebration at Moonwink's in Cuba on Tuesday.

Consider this backward joke submission from Ken Rummenie.

The Yale University Drama School will offer a course in facial expressiveness presented jointly by Marcel Marceau and famed actor Walken.

Its title is, "Mimes and Chris Demeanors."

Hang tough.

Last week's trivia answers:

Wilbur Dunn of Newfane and Ken Rummenie of Buffalo knew that Samuel H. Milley was the first priest to get a commission in our armed forces.

The longest running non-musical play was "Mousetrap." Helen Bette Laughlin of Niagara Falls and Blossom Cohan and Rummenie of Buffalo had the answer.

John Stachowicz of Buffalo and LaRusso recalled that Ty Detman was the last Academic All-America to win the Heisman Trophy.
