I did over the week- iend. I wont down by the river ; to do ihis here column, so as to get sum of thai real fishin' atmosphere into it. Seems as how two of our up an' coming young sprouts in town. Bill Thomas and Gordie Schmidt, been trying this iishin'. They been buying their hooks and sinkers and stuff from me, but just the other day these two fellers cum in and start saying they've had lousy luck fishin', and saying my tackle was lousy. I know it's all becuz they ain't been bailing their hooks proper, or they don't live right. Anyhow, right after Thomas and Schmidt made me feel bad, in cums another fishin' feller Carl Morck by name—and by golly, if he jest hadn't caught hisself a big 14 Ib. catfish up at Rapidan. And he was usin' Barry quality tackle! So I hooe ihose two fellers up al the Employment Offis read this, as I know personally that Carl wouldn't stretch a fish a single pound. Here's something, fellers. You all know whut I DON'T know about fishin' would Jill a great big book. When I started out in Ihis fishin' tackle stuff. I was sure a green one. But I been learnin'.- I practically know all aboul it now, except how to make my 290 Ibs. comfortable in sum leaky little old boat. Now whul I don t know aboul hunting is the same. All I know is there's plenty of walking to it, and I get more than enuf walking right here behind this counler. But anyway, here's whut happened. We are getting in a slock of hunting stuff to go along with our fishing stuff. Already got in sum shotguns. The boys here who know about hunting tell me we got sum automatics and some single shotlers both. Also sum iwenly-lwo rifles came along. And then a big box of shells. So we are in it for belter or for worse, and come next fall, I oughlla know a pheasant frum a chicken. You folks all know FATHER'S DAY is cumin/ end of next week. A lol of fathers hereabouts are planning to cut out for a day of fishin', but not me—I'm planning to be around to get those presents a father gels that day. My kids will probably have to wake me up to give them to me, but I'll be Ihere. Yes, folks, we got all kinds of stuff to give to Dads. Tobaccy, seegars, pipes, razors—all kinds of that stuff. Make your Dad happy with a Barry gift! Also, I want to lay m a good word for this Junior Chamber fly cont r ol campaign that's cumin' off. They sure ran old Mr. Fly out of town last year, and it'll be swell to have a fly- free town again this summer. Hope all you good folks get signed up for these spray boys, as they are really in there pitching to do a good job. My fellow writer. Tee Post, is in the thick of this fiy "pusiness, an he tola me he wouldn't be writing this week, S,p I m gwn you the best I have.

Why'Soft ball I Fans Make 4 A Donation An explanation of why collections are taken up at the Algona Softball League games was made this week by league officers. Sponsors of the learns go to great expense to finance the teams and equip them. They also contribute to general operating expenses, but it isn't enough to cover all expenses. . It costs S4.50 per night to light the field. This money goes to the Park Commission. It also costs $45' for bases and $50 for a new backstop, among other things. Money donated by fans when the hat is passed" helps defray these weekly expenses. It also will help to bring the fastest class of Softball to Algona, such as the Frazier team of Fairmont, Minnsola champs and Bob Savage and his Eagle Grove stars. Help support the teams— they support you! Attention is also called to Ihe league summary and schedule, found elsewhere on this page.
