They did a great deal of promotion for their party at the Kossuth Band Festival here, many of them appeared at the Coacl For Congress Rally Tuesday evening, and they are hard at work cleaning up the party's headquarters opened on Thoringlon street, in the space formerly occupied by the Pink Petal flower shop. » * * * I AM THE MOTHER OF one of the most enthusiastic Young Democrats, so I am getting in on a great deal of their activity. Last Wednesday preparations began for the float entry in the Band Festival. They came up with a fine idea, but the first problem was locating a donkey and a cart. * * * * A CART BELONGING TO THE Walt Bradleys was available but it was stored many blocks away from the Joe Bradleys where the club members, were to fit it with signs. Jack Vipond, Mary Bradley, Bill Sigsbee and Mary Jean Hood took turns pulling the thing until all were exhausted. Then they borrowed a car, put Mary and Mary Jean in the trunk where they held on to the tongue to tow it. * * * * * A PERFECT DONKEY, BELONGING TO GERALD FRANKL was located at the Joe Mergen farm six miles out of town. At the crack of dawn of Band Festival Day, Jack and Bill with Dick Simpson went out to pick him up. The animal was stubborn as a mule It took 35 minutes to load it on the truck and there was a bit of anxiety about whether or not they could get it to pull a cart loaded with lour club members in the parade. . • ' ' * * * - * BUT THE DONKEY HAD A STREAK of ham in him and he perlormed like a veteran parade marcher. Mark Prieskorn, son of Mr and Mrs Don Prieskorn, and Steve Reding, son of Mr and Mrs JJclmar Reding, both 10, were supposed to lead the animal, if necessary and to chase Kennedy hats when they were blown off in the wind. Their activity was limited to chasing hats. The donkey, wearing a Kennedy headgear himself, plowed right long. ' u ™, ° F THE DAY WAS THE dance - The club the Moose Hall for the afternoon, cleared plans with the Algona police and obtained the necessary chaperons. They charged a small admission and cleared approximately $27 * * * * TV , HIGH P ° INT OF THE AFTERNOON was a visit from Sixth iJislnct Congressman Merwin Coad who complimented the club on its etlorls. Earlier the congressman was put to work by the Algona group They needed some Kennedy hats for the parade, and Mr Coad literally ran to get them. "He said he would serve the people" a young Democrat remarked. ' . imli P ° NLY ^ ISCI F L1NE PROB LEM at the dance came from an unlikely source. The Algona police 'dropped in to see how things were going. The Y. D. members asked the cops to please put out their cigarettes. "We don't want people to think the kids are smoking ', they explained. ,.-••*"* * * ' . ~ ' ' °K NLY °. NE criticism the party has of the Young ' P , AHTICIPATION BY THEoemocrats in4he Band came in for some criticism from another source according ra T the ° the y ^ lg ° na paiier - County Re P"b»can Chairman f, inHi C f rlson lstl 5"° ted as deploring it. I have always been on a f nendly basis with Oliver so I feel free to come back by wondering first! 1 " ° bjectlon wasn>t because the Republicans didn't think of it * * * * IRONICALLY. OLIVER HIMSELF is partly to blame for some I the enthusiasm. being generated by the Young Democrats. He was kind enough to drive the candidates to Boys State last summer and that s the very place at least two of the Young Democrats received men- impetus to become actively interested in politics * » * * PERSONALLY. I AM TICKLED PINK to see the young people steamed up about politics. Government is everybody's business and the best way to get started in it is by doing some of the less glam- oious chores within the established parties. This holds for both young and oder citizens, whether or not they can vote. It takes quit! a bit for me to admit this, but I would also like to see the Young Republicans very active, although I. wouldn't have quite such a mgside seat on their antics. However, I will grant that it would take quite a bit of scrounging for the Republicans to find an appropriate animal if they were to have had an entry in the Band Festival parade. In these parts, elephants are even scarcer than donkeys! THIS WEEK. OUR FAMILY lost our last remaining grandpa when my mother's father, Lawrence Traeger was laid '-to rest at west Union. I know it may sound disrespectful of me, but I had a fine time at his funeral. Grandpa died at 89 after a long and useful me and he would have been pleased to see his numerous descendants renewing acquaintances with each other and at the same time paying tribute to his memory. Grandpa left seven sons and daughters, 24 grandchildren and 48 great-grandchildren. What a chain reaction can result when two people get married! , * * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Harvest Apple Pudding 1 tablespoon butter . 2 cups sliced apples . 1 cup raisins • ; J /i cup lemon juice V* cup light or dark corn syrup 1 l /a cups flour '/4 cup sugar Va teasp. baking powder ] /4 teasp. cinnamon ] /4 teasp. nutmeg 14 cup shortening Vj cup milk Vi cup chopped apples Melt butter in 8 inch round baking pan.
