Hunters Warned To Look For Rabbit Fever Have you ever heard of tul- i 1 " 6 ™ 5 *? Some People call it . Rabbit Fever because tHe disease is often passed to man from in* fected rabbits. Other animals may. be responsible for transmitting the disease but most -often rabbits or ticks are to blame. Hunters, the. Iowa State Department of Health cautions you to handle wild rabbits carefully! Handling or eating improperly cooked rabbit meat can cause Tulatemia. The germs usually enter the body through a cut or abrasion on the skin so it is wise to wear rubber gloves while dressing wild rabbits or handling fresh rabbit meat. .If white or greyish spots are visable on the internal organs, especially the liver, burn or bury the animal at once! This means the disease is in the advanced stage. A rabbit that is killed in the early stages of the disease may show rfo signs of illness but may be capable of spreading the disease to man. Tularemia in fnati is .not easy to recognize, Symptoms usually seen an* headache, fevef, chilis and general weakness. Should the presence , of this disease be suspected a doctor should be consulted at once. Receives Ph. D.

Don't delay ...... do it now, Algona Municipal Utilities Phone CY 4.2333 I was born two years sooner than my them only in grade school. Now, if I'd THERE tS A POPULAR SAYING that if you save an article, of clothing long enough it will come back into fashion once more. Jfc saty that happen last year with the chemise dress, the, clothe hfets and now it's being demonstrated in the long, pointed toed'shoes with the needle heels. Even long underwear has run the cycle of popularity and is back once more in the form of tights. , - * * * AS I REMEMBER IT, HOWEVER, long underwear in the Old days was designed with nary a thought for fashion. Comfort and the effort to keep from freezing to death were its sole reason for being. Nobody would dream of going out in 1 public with his long- Johns showing purposely. If we had to wear them we accepted them stoically with somewhat the same air of resignation reserved for putting up with a wart on the nose until plastic surgery could be afforded, we wore the long underwear but we had hopes of discarding them someday when we were old enough to stop having our mothers dictate to us. We protested violently, but we knew blamed well it wouldn't do us any good, THE HEW VERSION OP LONG UNDERWEAR—tights, is being greeted with quite a different attitude by the current crop of young people. Tights a're not only almost as warm as the old long-handles, they are also eminently fashionable. They come in brilliant hues of red, blue and green, as well''as very chic black and they arp blatantly flaunted in the best places, school, Sunday 'school, ; birthday parties and sports events. I never thought I'd live so long as to see the day when my daughters would beg me to let them be sensible and keep their legs warm! * * I WAS BORN EITHER TOO SOON or too late. I had to wear the hated long underwear until I was^a sophomore in high school. t sister, and she had to wear d been born 20 or so later, 1 could do as my daughters do—-wear the underwear and know that I was keeping up with the very*latest fad! And I wouldn't have this haunting complex about longVohns. Why,'for' years now, instead of dreaming in my nightmares that I am out in public in.the nude as most people do, I've been dreaming every time I eat dill pickles at bedtime, that I'r$ in a very swank social gathering clad in nothing but my long underwear! Wfi ALWAYS HATED TO SEE November arrive. With the first of the cold weather, Mamma dealt out two sets of long underwear all around. She had to practically knock out my oldest brother to get him to put them on in the Fall and she practically had to clobber him again in the Spring to get him to take them off. There wasn't any of this modern nonsense about taking a bath every day. We got baths on Wednesday and Saturday nights and in between we washed only our faces, necks, ears, hands and occasionally, our feet. Wednesday and Saturday nights were also clean underwear nights and how we welcomed that. The bulges from the long underwear under our stockings were most apparent on Tuesdays an< Fridays. * * * ^PRING IS ALWAYS WELCOME in the midwest. When I was a kid, I only looked forward to it for the jacks and marble season I could also hardly wait for the first warm days because then Mamma would let us shear off our underwear to the knees and elbows. Some kids with less integrity than I had been rolling them up for months the minute they got to school. But I was subject to colds and ton silitis and I knew blamed well my sins woujd find me out i I tried it. * * * ONE OF THE CROSSES I WAS called upon to bear in my tende: years was a girl named Elpise, She lived with her grandmother in our town for a winter. Eloise had not only come from Chicago anc had; taken professional dancing lessons, she afso was permitted t wear three-quarter length-socks the whole blamed winter! Eloise ised to. come into the .fourth grade classroom each morning, dressed! n her stocking cap with the .bunny-fur. ball on it, and her cityfied acket she said was a mackinaw. Her legs would be absolutely blue rom the Iowa winter, but I would have traded my hopes for heaven or the privilege of v/earing those three-quarter length stockings. * . * * MODERN KIDS ARE LUCKY. There are permanents for those straight or unruly hair, there are vitamins to give them pep, here's television,' movies and radio to entertain them and they get to go to schools that not only make learning easy, but down- ight fun. But most of all, they get to keep warm sensibly by wearing snow pants and tights, and they still can remain in the ery latest of fashion! * * * ANOTHER SIGN THAT WE ARE GETTING on in years is the ime we quit partying New Year's Eve. Jeanie was staying overnight with a friend, Mary Ann was baby-sitting and Bill went to ne midnight show. Pop and I got home before any of them! Another local pair of parents beat their, kids home also, but they weren't feeling nearly so bad Jan. 1 as w/as the family dog. It's the :ustom at their house to let the dog out when the last person comes lOme. Mom and Pop thought they were last, so they put out the pup. Jpon checking the next day, they found that each of the three sons had done the same thing. The dog had been outside four times and he was real dog-gone! * * * BING CROSBY WON THE contest sponsored by this column )ver his son, Gary in connection with the movie, "Mardi Gras", ilthough most people agreed that Gary did a very fine job in his first movie. Mrs William J. Wiskus 1 of Bancroft, first prize winner says, "I'm on Bing's side because he has always portrayed a regular guy'. I don't think any of his sons will be so great an actor as Bing." She recalled his roles in, "Going My Way", "Bells of St. Mary's" and says she thinks he was a great father and a wonderful husband to Dixie. She especially likes Bing because all of his Dictures were clean, number 1, family shows. I certainly agree with her about Bing, but perhaps the sons will be as great or even greater than their father. * * * I HAD SOME CHRISTMAS MAIL you might be interested in although it arrived after I wrote the last column. Gertrude Long Clow wrote from California that she is just aching to come back to see everyone. She says, "This is my second year with Montclaire school in Los Altos and vacation-wise it works out beautifully with the children." Susan entered San Jose State College as a Home EC major, Scott, 16 and Tim', 13, are both interested in Explorer and Boy Scouting. Dad, Wally, had a very busy season at Eri-Valley Packing Corp. but "a fruitful one, if you'll excuse the pun", says Gert. Grandma Minnie Long, so well known here, keeps house for the Clows and also makes and dresses exquisite Godey dolls. They are most grateful to have her with them. ' * * * THEODORA, "TOOTS". LARSON FISCHER sent such a nice family picture, the three big boys and tiny daughter, Julie. Dr. Carl is a physician at LaPorte, Ind, One of his patients was chosen Heart Girl of the year and we'll be seeing more of her in February. "Toots" made the little costume which will be worn in many of the publicity pictures. * * * MRS GEORGE JOHNSON SENT A NEW YEAR'S CARD from Warrenton, Oregqn and says they may be out there permanently. She says, "So glad for any word from Algona and we all look forward to your column every week." The daughters, Marjorie and Vera and families asked to be especially remembered. , » • * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR SWEDISH MEAT BALLS.
