REPORTERS' NOTEBOOK

OLAF FUB SEZ: Some men are just as sure of the truth of their opinions as are others of what they know, according to an observation by Greek philosopher Aristotle. . . .

ON THIS DAY -- In 1509, Henry VIII was crowned king of England . . . In 1540, he divorced his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves . . . In 1908, Grover Cleveland, who was the 22nd and 24th president of the United States after serving as mayor of Buffalo, sheriff of Erie County and governor of New York, died in Princeton, N.J., at the age of 71 . . . In 1940, France signed an armistice with Italy during World War II . . . In 1948, the Republican National Convention, meeting in Philadelphia, nominated New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey for president. . . .

MARCHING UNITS and floats are being sought for this year's Pulaski Parade, to be held on Broadway from Bailey to Fillmore avenues at 2 p.m. Sept. 22.

The televised parade is sponsored by the Gen. Pulaski Association of the Niagara Frontier to honor the Polish general who became a hero of the American Revolution. Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories, including drum corps, bands, pipe bands, children's marching units, drill teams, color guards, uniformed units, cadence units, motorized vehicles and floats.

Interested groups can contact parade chairman Edward Sieracki at 883-1820. . . .

Missing Eye Glasses
Those glasses I couldn't find

For which I looked every place,

Very quietly have reclined

Where they belonged -- on my face.
