Albert City is largely a Swedish town 'but Mr. Miller didn't learn the language though he did learn how to gulp his coffee like the Scandihoov- ians do, and he's now a regular •gulpcr. New msmbers in tile Tie-Less club this week are "Van" Van- ^ler Waal, Lornn Courtney, Dick Johnnnson,.,..-BiH Curtis and Herb Hedlund and they propose to observe the necktie laws-through the summer months even though they have to -wash their nncks »nd throats oftener, so to speak. Herb tells me, that he puts his ties in an anti-moth dust all summer while Loren'says he just throws his ties away and he always., sets three or four new ones for Christmas. Van isn't so particular about his ties and he just goes' over 'em with a flat iron before 'Labor Day while Bill Curtis says he only has one tie to worry about hence that can hang on a nail during the summer . months and Dick Johannsen, being a Dane like myself; he tears down his ties and turns 'em and makes 'em look like ne'w when he puts ''em on again in the fall. ^Nevertheless this Tie-Less', club 'is really getting places from -now on. \ Ex-Sweet Citiart To Wed Sho City—Dr. Sftd liam H.
