Lincoln's night scene is depressingly bleak this week. Entertaining establishments are
dominated by mediocrity.
Thank God for small favors -the Zoo. "
Located at 136 N. 14th St., the Zoo is not to be mistaken for a collection of wild
animals. The Zoo is a bar.
There is nothing exceptional about the Zoo's decor. Simplicity governs in the postered
walls and ceiling. The laminated tables have a rope design to qualify the zoo theme.
Mixed drinks and beer ale acceptably priced. The usual "junk" food-Stewart sand
wiches, beer nuts, et al-are available to control unexpected hunger pangs or cravings.-
The difference between, the Zoo, any other, corner bar is the entertainment.
Performers are accomplished musicians with a variety of styles reflecting the genuine
sounds of bluegrass and country music.
Regulars at the Zoo are Jon Emery and the Missouri Valley Boys. Their music is
country-western, never failing to arouse the homegrown spirit of the crowd. Emery and
bis band will entertain this Thursday through Saturday.
The popular repertoire of the Megatons can be enjoyed frequently at the Zoo.
Termed 'rock-a-billy," the music is a combination of country-western and rock. ...
Every Wednesday evening, the Zoo features an acoustical jam session. Usually managed
by Pete Blakeslee, the midweek entertainment includes reputable bluegrass and country
western musicians. The talented participants informally gather, often producing original
If you are geared toward the quality banjo pickin' and thumb strummin sounds, the
Zoo provides music youH appreciate. Although it lacks physical attributes, there is a
compensating, lively atmosphere.

Remember hot muffins on cold morn
ings before leaving for school? One of the
best things about muffins is that you don't
need a mixer to make them. Muffins can be
made easily by anyone who has access to a
refrigerator and a small broiler-baker oven.
A good way to mix muffin batter is to
distribute the margarine throughout the
dry ingredients and then add liquid ingre
dients. This method, unlike melting the
margarine, will result in a product that can
be stored and tastes good reheated. By
using this basic muffin recipe you can
make you own creations by adding apple

nuts or other fruit. -

YY guy. Twice before we had items about
the use of letters that sound like words.
One was the ABCD-goldfish dialogue,
which we though was about as elementary
as you can get. But an equally elementary
one that we overlooked has been sent in by
Harry Schloss of Palm Springs, Fla. It goes
like this (as if you didn't kaow):
Say what you mean. Sometimes the mis
placement of a word or phrase will cause a
statement to aay not quite what the author
is trying to get across. Rose Nassau of
Philadelphia recently had occasion to travel
on the Long Island Railroad and repeatedly
saw a poster seeking contributions to the

point that people can do many things, but
not without an education.
- But what caught and offended the
traveler's eye was a slogan in large type at
the top of the poster: "A mind is a terrible,
thing to waste." Quite obviously, the coin
er of the slogan did not mean in any sense
that a mind is a terrible thing; if he had
meant that, he would not have advocated
educating it. What he did mean is the sen
