M. readers and I just wanted to tell you that all during the two and a half years you were away from here I never once had a headache and then last night after reading your bunk again I had to .take an ana- cin", Well, what do you know, maybe Alvis has got something there. I'm printing a letter which is ..selNcxplanatory as to the influential members of the Algona •Coffee Gulpcr club: The White House, Washington, D. C. ' '. T " April 3, 1948. Dear Mr. Rcose:— Today over a cup of coffee I gave- president Truman your A. A C. G. membership card. He asked .me to extend to you his thanks. He promises to uphold the .traditions of proper coffee .gulping and said that his home state has always enjoyed a coffee gulping population and he is happy 'to be a member of so worthy -an association. The president maintains that perfect re- Uixation is always enjoyed over a dip, of coffee. Sincerely, ^.. Charles Ross, 'Presidential Press Secretary. And so now I can brag about the G.ulpers having membership in all 'ranks, from the president of the United States down to every-day citizens. And so it is too that Algona soars skyward in, popularity because on account of 'the thousands of Gulper members all over the country connect the best town in Iowa with their Gulper membership, so to speak. And since the Coffee Gulpers write-up in the Fort Dodge Messenger and the Des Moines Tribune last week I've been getting membership applications from all parts of the state and, for example. I signed up over 300 cards for membership the past three days. How folks do enjoy their Gulps. I am withdrawing my candidacy for either mayor or courr- cilitTan-rft-large and from this 1 minute on I'm going to durndest for the re-election of the mayor and the city council of Algona because on account of the city council is arranging for takimr'care of the South Dodge and Nebraska intersection situation. 1 'wanted something done about that so I wouldn't fet all fleshed up with goose pimples every time I drove to work or to dinner, 'so to speak. And now the council proposes to widen Nebraska street approaching the intersection and which takes care of parking along the Legion hall and the Datt garage and so I have a clearer view and don't have to wovrv my fool head about getting bumped into. You tell 'em. .that's, a- swell move on the part ofi the council and I'm going to take off my coat and get the whole council re-elected at the next election. Clarence McVey suggests that I should be working in an army recruiting office because on account of he said to me. "You've cot something when you can get fi.OOO Gulpers, and you should be >)• big success getting signers for the army". And maybe he's gnt something there, so to speak. A committee of the Pipe Puffers and Ring Blowers association, made up of Don Smith. Augirst'-'Bernau. John McGuirc, Perrv Rvam, Gaylord Shumway and H. Fristedt has drawn un the wording for the Pipe Puffers rshio card as follows: "This is to Certify That LuVerne Music Teacher Resigns LuVerne—The LuVerne school music department presented its prq-contest concert, featuring large groups Wednesday, April 7, 8 p. m. in the high school auditorium. Appearing were the boys' glee club, girls' glee club, mixed chorus and band in several numbers. Supt. Arnold Hjclle announced that evening that Wcston Noble, who has been in charge of music department of school past two years would not return next year as he expects to go to college and receive his master's degree. It is with regret we see Mr. Noble leave the faculty here. We wish him much success as he goes further in his chosen work of music. is a member of the PIPE PUFFERS and RING BLOWERS ASSOCIATION And is entitled to all of the courtesies due a pipe puffer and ring blower. He uses the right stance in lighting his pipe, knows just Jiow to pack the tobacco in the bowl, kerps the right sort oi draft through the stem, never spreads his ashes over the car- put ;uic] keeps the pipe in A-l condition at all times. His smoke is of groat value in keeping moths out of the curtains and closets. He does not smoke his uipe in church nor while eating his meals, nor does he intention ally uvw blow smoke in a lady's face 1 . At the right interval h reduces the strength to normal bv a thorough boiling of thr Pipe." President. Secretary. The ciu'd is signed by Eddie DeZellar,' president, and Art Rejcker, secretary. And I'm told that pipe smokers in Algona and Kossuth county will be contacted and joined up with the Pipe Puffers and Ring Blowers Association in the near future.
