-,'" '7 -; rS c %* ^W^wrH * . * ^. ( « *J t. s« ' i** r j, ^j^jjjt ,"; *• ' 4-Algdtttt IS, 1959 : ALGONA'S UNITED FUND DRIVE will go into full swing next week. It's our first attempt to consolidate all that door bell ringing into one big drive. United Fund is an organization of the givers, and most Ot us, even though we don't have a large amount to give, like to know where that giving is going. In fact, I suspect'that there are so many of us in the same situation that our name is legion. Therefore, in the manner of a popular TV show, is this script, "Mrs Legion Looks At the United Fund Lineup", » » » THIS IS THE CITY—ALGONA, IOWA, All teaming 6000 souls of it A oily made up of homes and businesses. This is the crime: multiple fund drives and multiple giving for organizations and causes even though they merit our time and irfohey. This is the U. F. Squad, assigned lo cl^an up the problem, The detectives 'have brought in ten organizations tor tho TLineup—all suspected of being guilty of meriting Mrs Legion's giving through the United Fund, Ail of the "suspects have been on the Lineup before, •» - .'•. •* "•:. »• ' ( MRS LEGION SITS IN THE DARKENED auditorium, .her hands tightly 1 gripping her purse. She is Warned firmly hot to identify any of the suspects unless she is positively Sure they are guilty of needing her money. The Lineup enters, the lights are turned on the faces of the suspects, and after a short pause for a commercial announcement, questioning begins. ' » » * • SUSPECT NUMBER 1 IS THE American Red Cross, $2,500 tall.

She concludes all , suspects are guilty. She will further identify them with her support in the United Fund Drive, October 19 through 31. Wont you join Mrs Legion? * * * RECENTLY I HAVE BEEN A little worried about my reputation. Those of you who know me personally will no doubt agree that I am. of the shy retiring type- and, that I blush rather easily. However, because ol the column on sex my typewriter wrote a few week's back; I fear I am getting known as a sort of corn-fed Kinsey report. Harlan Miller, who started the whole thing anyway, by his eternal, threats to write a sex column, has mentioned it tour times lately in the- Des Moines Register and I'm hearing about it from all sorts of sources. » * * THEN, THE OTHER DAY, Burt Harmes stopped in at the U. D, M. to tell me he and Doc Dorweiler had been having a discussion about'my views of the sex life of earthworms! The earthworm column was written several years ago and recently was reprinted in the Fort Dodge Messenger. Doc, is a veterinarian, and as such, knows a great deal more about the love-life of earthworms than I do, so I shall concede that I was wrong. However, all I said was that worms, being each both male and lemale, don't have to spend so much time courting; Doc claims they have to spend twice as much. Sex life of the earthworm, yet! I have trouble with the sex life of humans. * * * RIGHT NOW I FEEL LIKE the people in the old joke where the lady said, "In Boston, we place all the emphasis on breeding". Her conversationalist said, "In Indiana, we think it is a great deal of fun, too, but we have other interests." So have I, but wouldn't it be a wry twist of fate if I, who have always emphasized kids, home, mother and religion in my writing, should end up with my only taste of fame as that, "lady sex columnist from Algona"? I DON'T HAVE A RECIPE on hand right now, but I did find •another way fish should not be fried. It was discovered by Celia Dahlhauser, who worked long and hard to catch a couple of walleyes on our recent Cass Lake excursion. Fish were so scarce that Celia wanted to be, sure the ones she did bring home were fixed extra- special. There was a pan of what she thought was pancake flour on the kitchen cabinet, She' rolled the fish in it and browned them carefully, When the family sat down to the table, they complained the fish lasted awfully sweet. It turned out that daughter Jolene had been going to make a cake, found out there were no eggs so she get the bowl o| inix aside, and Mama had used the stutf for fish crust, It is not recommended, GRACE tended funeral services, for Carl HoViok at -Badger Wednesday afternoon.
