«*•< Arthur Larson, Swed Resident 75 Years, Dies Eagle—Arthur D. Lar< son, 75, lifelong resident of this community passed away suddenly following a heart attack Tues* day morning, .Jan. 6. { Art had been in failing health for some years. He was born April 14, 1883 in Swea Township a son of Harry and Emily. Larson, early day residents of Swea. He received his education in rural school here, and attended Gustavus Adolphus College at St. Peter, Minn. In 1916 he was married to Bessie Peterson.

Or at least they will probably have quite a bit to do with the steps leading up to it. I suppose those rockets Bill is always making is really a very basic form of it, bearing about the same relationship carving out a sling shot is to inventing the atom bomb. But you have to start some place and even Thomas Edison's mother must have complained sometimes about the awful stench ,from his experiments. I am not particularly anxious to have any of my children go into outer space — I'll be happy if they manage to stay all in one piece in inner space. Neither am I interested in going to the moon myself.

SO FAR AS I KNOW, NOBODY has decided whether or not there is life on any of the other satellites or planets. Until I find ther are people up there I am going,to stay right here qn earth. I'm not interested enough in rockets, gravity, orbits and voccums to make a trip purely for science. When I go some place I want to have somebody to visit.' What's the use of going calling if there is nobody at home? * * * OF COURSE, IT COULD BE THAT THERE are people on the moon or on some planet in Outer Space. Before Columbus discovered America, most people thought it was not only ridiculous to think there were people on the other side of the world, they also considered it preposterous to think there was another side of the world. So it could be that when the first landing is made on the moon there will be somebody there to whom it can be said, "Take me to your Leader." * * * LIFE ON THE MpON WILL probably ibe not so advanced as it is here on earth. If it were, the Moonites would make the trip before the Earthlings. I am Abetting it will be our side who gets there first and when we do we'll find them very backward. They won't even have refined their methods of killing each other off as we have. * * * AFTER SEVERAL SHIPLOADS OF HUMANS arrive on the moon, we can begin talking the natives out of their land and pushing them farther and farther westward. Then, a century or so later people can tell about how Grandpa arrived on the moon in a covered """"" "^ : p. And TV viewers of the future will see a whole raft of bout how the Moonites massacred the settlers. space shi miesa Ledyard Folks Wed 25 Years On Jan. 4th Ledyard — Sunday, Jnn. 4th, Mr and Mrs Burton Johnson celebrated their 25lh silver wedding anniversary.

FRED PANNKUK, Owner Quinn & .YuQ0tb9g<jiucUe£MOT._ Tiionjca Savings Bank, Cleric, ROMANCE ON THE MOON will be a little different from the way it is here on earth. A fellow will pick up his girl and say, "There's a full earth tonight, let's go smooching." Love songs will be a little harder to write than they are here because they won't have the familiar June-moon rhyme to draw on. Do you suppose earth-dearth, or earth-worth will seem as romantic? * » * I WONDER IF THE PEOPLE up on the moon say, "What in the moon am I going to do .now?" Do they give as an excuse when they have acted less than their best, "After all, I am only Moonite?" And does moonite's constant ! inrndnity .to moonlite make countless thousands mourn? Weird 'characters will probably still be called, |out of this world," because the moon is a world, but when somebody gets married will they have to change the ceremony to read, "with all my moonly goods, I thee endow?" * * * THEY WILL PROBABLY HAVE superstitions up on the moon about how sleeping in ttte light of the earth will drive a person to madness. And if somebody gets moody over something they probably say '.earthing around". The tides are undoubtedly governed by the light of the earth and once in a blue earth does something unusual come up. * * * THEOLOGY IS PROBABLY COMING in for a great deal of expansion if we discover there are people on the moon. We know that we 'are God's visited planet when He sent His Son, but we are assured that the message is for "all people", so might it also be true for the people on. the moon, if there are some? The God of the Universe is a pretty baffling concept for an ordinary person such as I, bus when Jesus lived on earth, Judea was almost as far from America as the earth is 'from the moon today. * * * TO TELL THE TRUTH, I have enough problems coping with this world let alone takeing on any new ones by going to the moon, Scientific instruction in atoms and space is wonderful and everyone should have some knowledge of it whether or not he ever does anything vital with it. But equally important, and in some cases even more so, are the arts and sciences connected with getting along with people. There is ample spalce for improvement within the space we know about, without venturing into outer space. There is also room for a genuine non-clog sewer system, a cure for the common cold, a system of feeding the hungry multitudes of this world, and a foolproof simplified income tax form. * * * WILL WE SOMEDAY FIND that man has been toq nosey? Will, we find that some of the secrets of the universe belong only to God Himself? And by prying into them, will the whole human race be destroyed,? I don't know. It is far too deep for me. As I said before, I have enough trouble getting the kids off to school on time and keeping up on the washing and ironins, * * * IF THERE ARE PEOPLE on the moon they will probably have to eat just like your family and mine does. And unless they live a great deal different from the way we do Moon Mammas have to cook too. The moon is said to be made of green cheese. I don't have a recipe for that but I do have one, for Green Rice. It was sent to me by Dru Caughlin Mertz, Grand Island, Neb. and she says it is delicious with wild duck or fish. 1 cup uncooked rice. 1 cup ground green onions 1 cup milk 1 cup ground parsley 1 cup parmesian cheese 3 eggs ¥2 cup buttes salt and pepper. Beat the eggs, add the melted butter and other ingredients. Butter and flour a ring mold, put the rice concoction in it and bake 40 minutes in a pan of water. _ _ _ _ GRACE, _ \ 30 Hear Of European Trip At Ottosen Meet They presented > aion on the theme* „ Mrs Rose Motrtl __..„ has been visiting this home of Mrs Lena Wftflttft£ The? were guests at dinnef afttftt fi&r- old Warner home hoiiifiifc thi birthday of Mrs Lena wlSfter, , The G.o.S.
