AUG. 18-19 -20 -21 We Wish To Extend A Hearty Welcome To Kossuth County's 1959 FAIR. , WHILE IN ALGONA STOP AT BRONSON'S DEALERS FOR CLAY FARROWING STALLS SIOUX STOCK TANKS SIOUX CORN CRIBS ELLSOTT PAINfS TOP GRADE LUMBER AND BUILDING SUPPLIES Ex-Residents Picnic Aug. 8, long Beach By Buddy and Butrell Mason • Special Correspondents We now have one slightly battered Dictionary compiled by some guy named Webster,If you're wondering, why my dictionary needs a refresher course in authenticity and accuracy on matters lowan, get a load of what it fondly hopes is a | fairly correct definition of the word, "picnic!" We quote: "picnic (pik'rtik), n. a short excursion into the country by a pleasure party carrying their own provisions; (SLANG), a pleasant time; an easy job; a cinch." UNQUOTE. As we once said, lowans don't picnic accidentally, THEY DO IT ON PURPOSE! If a vacationing lowan in Alaska suddenly looks at n calendar and says, "Mom! It's getting close to tho second Saturday in August," that does it! Without a word Mom starts to pack and tries to remember where she saw those road maps to Los Angeles last. As for "carrying their own provisions," any man who would call an Iowa sty.le baked pie, chicken salad or roast turkey merely provisions" should be forced to eat his "giant, illustrated, approved compilation of over 50,000 definitions" without salad dressing. The "cinch" part we'll dismiss. It's a rinch that the males will lot out a bolt cinch, or two, in cinch their chances of having room for extra dessert. An "excursion into the country," indeed! We'll bet that the Kofisuth team .would scale the Matterhorn to attend oh Iowa Picnic at its peak. For Mr Webster's information, a picnic, when held by the Iowa folks is: A convention of picnic experts, of caters of good food and ladies who know how to prepare tasty viands, It's' a gathering of convivial men-of-goodwill; a multi-family reunion; a beauty parade; baby-show; old- timers' get-together and one-day"Friendship Club" organized to greet old neighbors and friends from back home. It's also an fnfnrmation Bureau for seattef- ed relatives and friends. It .all adds up to NICE PEOPLE. BATING NICE FOOD, .MEETING OTHER NICE PEOPLE ANtf HAVING A NICE TIME! Picnic day at Recreation Park, Long Beach, California, on Aug. 8th, was no exception to the above rule, Kbasuth Countians were out in jovial groups to en-; joy the good-fellowship of eaclv other. We missed Ernie Taylor, who hasn't been absent from an Iowa Picnic in many, many years. Inquiry brought' no information concerning Ernie arrd frankly* we are worried. Otto* K, Elbert, another old picnic standby, was also missing. We had the pleasure of meeting Eddie and Peggy Abbas (She's the former Peggy Freeh of Algona) and their four children. Eddie hails from West Bend where his mother and dad, John and Esther Abbas still reside. Eddie and^Peggy have been out here two years and live in La Mesa. Mr and'Mrs H. S.

"In these cities," he added, "large numbers of persons never got their Salk shots because they thought It was too much trouble. Now look at 'the trouble they're in. The toll of persons stricken is mounting rapidly and there have already been some deaths reported, Kossuth county could be next. The National Foundation, Dr k Potter said, is rushing nurses and, other 'medical' personnel .and a great deal- of special equipment to the. Des Moines area to help meet the emergency. Dr. Potter urged all those in Kossuth County who have not had any Salk shots to get started at once, and those who have had only one or '|wo shots to complete the series* of .three as soon as possible, .
