The new initiates won white formals and wre honored by the chapter house with a dinner following the ceremony. Hey, you fishing feller friends oi mine! Look ai whul is happening! First off, last week a lady wrote in and panned my wril- in' about fishin'. Then look whul happened Sunday. Mrs. Lloyd Muckoy hooked onto and landed a 14-POUND NORTHERN PIKE down near Si. Joe. We just goita congratulate Mary, bul ye gods! fellers, let's gel out and do sum fishin' before the wimrnsn take over. I'll take care of wriiin' about fishin'—you fellers got iish. Feller told no '.asi week he hooked onto a big snapping lurlle, bul bscuz he said he wouldn't know how lo cook it, he cut the lins UPC! iel Ihe big lurlle loose. S'o just in case any you other fellers got hooked onto a snapping iurtle, I went and talked io s old snapping turtle man nr>.d here's how lo cook Mr. Turtle. First thing, clean off the lurlle good by Hucwing him in boiling water. Then cut him up small, put pspper on it, sail loo. and sum sluif ihey call onion joose. Gat aholt of a big sauce pan bcrr.f; placa and then lei the whole- mess simmer for a half hour. Add in sum browned fiour and when it's all blended beai up a yolk of an egg and loss thai in. Boil the whole works, lake il off Ihe fire and then go down lo th' fish counter and buy yerself a nice mess o' pike fillets. Fellers, our tackle's been selling like wild. Fishin' fel- lers been coming in from all around and ialrin' it sway from us. Lois oi bullhead hooks been sold.. Our lures (that's a fancy name for plugs and stuff) been lakin' on real good. In fact, I'm surprised lhal in spite of my dura wriiin' about fish, we been selling tackle. I guess the felleis jusi feel sorry for me, and want lo buy us oui quick so I will ease off. By the way, wenl io a firsl- rale fish fry last Friday night at the Kountry Klub here. There was sum real ealin' there. They served sum fine Kolorado trout lhal was flew in from Kolorado. Bul they didn't have quite enuff of that, so they added on sum North Iowa trout, which was really big karp. It was called "planked North Iowa trout"—came in nailed down on a plank. I didn't like my piece oi Iish so good, but I sure did enjoy thai plank. Well, you good fishin' fellers, that's all I can Ihink up for this time. But keep coming in to see and buy our fishin' tackle. That floor in front of ihe counter is getting wore down real good. And lo all you guys up in Kanada fishin' .... here's hopin' you get as big fish as we are lakin' out of the little old Upper Des Moines river!

By DICK POST I've been reading that writing of Barry, Jr., and taking note of ihe way he murders the English language . . . and so I just had to gel back into print to at least make people on the out side believe we do have educated folks here in Algona. Then, too, although you are likely to read a bit about Birds in my writing, you WON'T have to read about fish. Speaking of Birdiand here in Algona, we now have at the Post outdoor aviary a fine pair of trained Parrakeets, ready and willing lo bo members of some friendly household. Lots of young birds— Parrakeets and Canaries — are coming up. The whole aviary is out-doors, you know, and worth a trip just lo see. You are welcome. Post movers have been hitting a heavy schedule lately. We have had a large number of household quods moving jobs to handle. Many of them long distance. Every job has gone off lo perfection—no complaints. Our moving trucks are used expressly for moving work, are always clean and lidy, and our men work efficiently and carefully. We are always ready to handle your work in the moving line, one piece or a carload. Hugh was snowed under for awhile on crating work, but has just about caught up now. We can crate one piece or a carload h.ere, too. It's all expert work, rugged construction, and will get your things to their destination in good order. For either moving or crating work, when you have it, think of POST. By the way, our office girl is moving out to the state of Washington, and we have a job open. If you know of a young lady who wants a good job, tell her about it. We can also use another man in the moving end of the business, POST Transfer Storage PHONi 29?
