Serious historians tell •. Us that it lasted only four or five years in each geographical location and then low nnd order tool over. Homes were established, .f&rrns nnd industries began nnt the Indians lived peaceably on refsoi -vulions or side by side? wit their white brothers. All remained pretty quiet until TV with Adult Westerns came along. Now the West is renllv wild again. • • * * IT PROBABLY DID TAKE QUITE n few brnvc pioneers on our frontiers, and there were probably ;ils<> quite u few crooks who tried to move in on a good thing quickly. The traits might very well have been combined in the very same people. Undoubtedly it took marshals to calm things down ;i hit, and I would be willing to concede that there were sortib"' gun-fights. But if there was as much 'gunsmoke in the real wild west us there is on present-day TV, there wouldn't be anybody left to settle the frontier — settler, sheep or cow man, law man, crook, pure sweet pioneer maidens or saloon girls with gaudy exteriors 'hiding hearts of gold. And there wouldn't be enough red-skins left to populate a decent sized reservation. » * * THE WILD WEST WAS SIMPLER when I was n kid. Despite the suspicions of our offspring, I didn't live in the rcul one, but '. was a dyed-in-the-wool western fun. In my day, the Wild West vvas cowboy movies and whenevei 1 1 had the ten cents for the .icket I went to the Saturday matinee. It was Hoot Gibson, Tom Vlix and Ken Maynard, and although today I can't pair the horses, ony, Silver King and Tar/.nn with the right cowboys, then anybody who couldn't do so was considered unspeakably ignorant. The hero always got the girl in those days, but he was even fonder of his lorse, and the most brilliant piece of conversation I can remember is, "They went thata-way." * * * I WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED on my first trip to as far west as I've ever been—South Dakota. The farmers called their places, ranches, there were some cows with brands on them, and a few very tame Indians. But the people we knew planted corn and oats and,wheat, just as they did here in Iowa and the only gunsmoke I saw was when Grandpa shot that prairie chicken. + * * • WHEN OUR KIDS WERE LITTLE they followed westerns, too. I don't know how many cowboy hats and two gun holsters we bought Bill' for birthdays and Christmas and he was forever hankering for a pair of real cowboy boots. Because of his growing feet we settled for low-heeled ones, and it may be that this will be one of the things he will confess on a physchiatrist's couch as pnrenta frustration. But we went along with him on the rest, of the western stuff. He idolized Gene Autry, Roy Rodgers and the Lone Rangei at the movies, over the radio, and later'on television. They were stil going "thata-way", but something new had been added. The cowboys sang as they rode along. There was full orchestral accompanimen out there on the prairie, and once in a while the hero strummec some of his guitar, as they gathered around the campfire. * * * TODAY, THE ADULT WESTERNS HAVE some plot to them. At least that's the way they are billed. The hero shows a great deal more fondness for the girl than he docs his horse but he hardly ever gets her at the end. If he did they would probably have Thurtdny, July 9, 1959 Algona (la.) Upper D« Mefftit*3 to live week's plot." eve] . ,. a j se w j l | 1 ve noticed this too, about Adult Westerns. The girl School Picnic Held The Center school picnic was held at the Commercial Club building Sunday with thirty-six present.

' Mr and Mrs Fred Kampen and family were Sunday visitors at the Leo Ludwig's at West Bend. Donald Newt9n was honored at a farewell picnic Saturday evening at his home. Attending were Mr and Mrs Lester Newton and family, Mr and Mrs James Lenning and boys, Mr and Mrs Helmer Lenning and boys and Mr and Mrs Jack Newton a.nd girls from Humboldt, Mrs Tillie Lenning from Dakota City, and Miss Norma Klein of Livermore.

Sometimes she's a clance-hall babe, aflen she's a daughter of the pioneers with quite a few ulterior motives, and, in the case of my favorite lady on "Maverick", Samantha, an all-out adventuress who keeps both Brett and Bart jumping to outsmart. + * * INDIANS, ON ADULT WESTERNS. STILL go on the warpath and they occasionally scalp some paleface. But now its shown that the Indians were usually done wrong by first and in spite of yourself, you get to feeling sympathetic toward them. As represented on TV, the Law is always right, but th'ere is some grounds for suspicion that in the real wild west, there were some marshalls who were almost as bad as the crooks. * * * THE MEN AT OUR HOUSE thoroughly enjoy Adult Westerns. I like a few of them myself, but there are simply too many of them. The thing to do, it seems to me is to combine some of the shows. We could put together the ones featuring weapons in the titles and have, "Have Colt 45; Will Travel with a Rifleman making Gunsmoke with a Restless Gun." The ones with the different locales could be combined into a sort of travelogue entitled, "Wagon Train to Cheyenne, Tombstone Territory with The Texan wearing, Buckskin, Boots and Saddle, with Rawhide". "Wyatt Earp" could team up with, "The Lawman", "Bat Masterson", "Yansey Derringer" into a kind of frontier Sheriff's Association and hang out joint "Wanted, Dead or Alive", posters. Then we'd have only three or four Adult Westerns and I could stand that and still have time for "What's My Line" and "Gary Mopre". Or I might even get around to reading more books! At any rate, podner, I'd be willing to bet a couple of pokes of gold dust, that if any of the real old time western people—marshalls or crooks, settlers or cowboys, pioneers or Indians—could arise from their graves and look in on one week's programming of present-day television, they'd die laughing at the way they are portrayed! * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE comes from Celia Dahlhauser who got it from Elva Hall who got it, I don't know where.
