But for a real Vfild party, all 6f them £ ou lr i8 ke a less °n from the teen-age phehomena, the slumber party. There were four or five of them in Algona over the weekend one. of them at our house, t k EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT A SLUMBER party is grossly misnamed, for the last thing anybody ever does is sleep. This includes • . hostess, the guests, the parents, the brothers and sisters, the neighbors, and not a few young male citizehs, who hang around in the bushes to scare th'e party participants just in case things settle down for a few minutes. If this later element is not present, a slumber thimdoy, Oct. 1, 1959 Algeria (to.) Upp«r Dat Rev. J. Share Passes; Rites Held Saturday FuneM services Joseph J. Share, 82, for Rev. long time LJs not considered & complete success by anybody.i --*• *•«,'•'* '' • THE PACT THAT YOU HAVE;OKLY four beds in the house all of them regularly occupied by family members, is no excuse fo: failing to have a slumber party. Beds are excess baggage. The waj slumber parties are operated nowadays, each guest brings a pillow a blanket and her pajamas," and',What time,is spent in a prone position is on the living room floor. Mothers So not have to worrj about having'a clean towel for each guest for, according to mj informatioh, nobody bothers to wash her iace at a slumber, party,, ,•*-.*.;'* • "* FOOD IS THE ONE INDISPENSIBLE item at a slumber, party. At our house, we did away with!! large sized, birthday cake, i gallon ice cream, a box of potato chips, 24 king-size bottles of assorted-flavored pop and 3 dozen rolls and doughnuts, and a considerable quantity of orange juice and milk for breakfast. Provisions were further reinforced by a contingent of young persons who arrived about-11430. They bore 24 more., bottles of pop. which they had taken up a collection to buy. The general idea was that the treat should serve as an engraved invitation to join the party, but one of the chaperones, noted for her puritan views on such matters, eliminated the open-door, policy at midnight. However, they left "the pop here. • .„ * * * '-'OLDER MEN", WERE PRESENT AT our slumber party and the chaperones were forced to let them in briefly. They were guests of our son, Bill, and they had been to 'the Homecoming dance at the high school. They stoked up a little on the party refreshments, ran an errand to get one of the' girl's record player, teased the party participants, and departed. The party quieted down to a loud shout. , Mama joined Pop,.fitfully slumbering on the second floor. I MUST HASTEN TO ADD THAT there Was not a single young person connected in any way with the p'arty who was riot;a perfect lady or gentleman. But when you get ten thirteeri-year-old-girls together,'with the auxiliary on the fringe area, you are bound to have giggles, hijinks, horseplay and rock and roll. My nerves are not what they once'were but r managed to get in three or four hours of sleep. The party participants were unusual if they got one! MY CHIEF COMPLAINT ABOUT THIS slumber party came 'Ss I staggered downstairs at 8 the next morning to leave to serve on the election board.' I * was* all bleary-eyed, cross; and 16pking like something the cat dragged' in. The ten little girls: were sitting there singing, "Good Morning To You", on tune, too, and their faces were-fresh, smiling and lovely. It seemed to me,'Unmitigated gall on their part, to' flaunt • their exhuberant youth in my face. After all, it was ; >my. birthday, 1 too, but it was a great many more than 13! , ' , ' , \ ,,':,'.",,•*,, * * • / - : . • • •• '• THE NEXT NIGHT POP AND I were talking,,oVer the party; We, were beat, but .we 'agreed it had been a success. Bill;has,a birthday coming H up, also,' and, I; gloated, about the fact that he is a'b'oy and at least he'wouldn't want a slubber party. Later he came jin^with an; - illustration', of a rod-and-real case. He said'it is ve^y fine and he would just as soon have ,us give it to him for his birthday. "But", he added, "if you really want to give me something I'd like for my birthday, I'd like to have six or seven guys in for a slumber party!" THE SPECIAL CITY ELECTION the next day to revise the terms of the cduncilmen was a disgrace if you/judge by its turnout, or. the interest of • our. citizens in public affairs. Only 98 people bothered to get out to vote in the whole town of Algona! But for the purpose of resting up after a slumber party it was a perfect situation. Hazel Lusby, Hortense Ferguson, Amy Geering, Ethel Loss*and. I sat as official First .Ward election board and had a coffee'klatch and tea-towel hemming party. We polled the magnificent sum of 22 votes, but if I had had any news stories fo write, any church bulletins to put out or any real thinking to do, I doubt if I could have accomplished it. ...... . ... *•;-.*. .,*... -,.; . -' . THERE WAS QUITE A BIT OF misunderstanding about where people should vote who are in the territories affected by the shifting of the ward boundaries'. We turned two or three people away who wanted to vote at our polling place. Heaven knows, we needed the business, but we were still operating on the old ward system. However, in the regular city election early in November, the ward territories will be in operations. Instead of the Legion Hall, First _Warders will vote at the high school and it should be a reaLboon to concien- tious citizens who can't climb'the Legion Hall steps but who still want to vote. Second Warders who formerly voted at the high school will move down to Lucia Wallace school/ ;• .;.-. . . . .'.. * * ••-. * AMY GEERING WAS DISPLAYING A lovely red leather bound book at the election. Lettered in gold on the'outside were S. O. G; P. I. P. She-received the. book from a friend who is very spiritual and when she first opened the gift she assumed the book was a Devotional and that the letters meant, Son of God^Power In, Prayer. Upon opening the book she found they,meant Silly Old Grandma; Pictures In Purse, and there were spaces for grandchildren pictures. Amy has hers filled, with perfectly darling snaps of Mary Ann, Paula, Billie Jean, Jeanette and Jerrold Black, plus a couple of shots of their.mother, Bettv, when she was a baby. CORRINE GABRIELSON of Sexton always sends Mary Ann and me our first birthday card each year for she has a mother-child birthday situation in September at her house, too. This year was no exception and we received the message and card several days before the big event.
