De* Tuesday, June 8, T948 by CHHT3 REESE A LHlla of This, a 11111* of Thai; Nol Much of Anything. After having a haircut Saturday Hank Furst remarked a,bout what human-looking ears I had Fineo the locks were cut away from 'em and then he told mo "ow I'd have to wash my ears and neck evc-ry day until locks ngain covered 'em. and then he made a suMi-stion that I get a nice friendlv dor; ;md teach and train htm to lick my ears and neck and that way I wouldn't have to fool with soap and water every day, and he's got something there. Hank said if I'd get the dog hf-'d be glad to train the pup so after every meal T rnuld lay down on the sofa and take a nap and the pup would show his high regard for me by friendly licks on my oars and neck. I met Roy Brown, county agent, on the street the other day and ho told me how embarrassed he got at a meeting in the country the other night because on account of when he entered the room a youngster spoke up loud enough so everybody could hear., him with "Oh. look Daddy, there's that man who plays the fiddle while he's ready to fall off a chair''. And. of course, everybody looked and then everybody laughed and Roy said he felt like he'd liked to have hidden behind the door or soinewher because en account of ho doesn't play the fiddle and it was embarrassing to have folks think lie was Chris Reese. And he's right about that, and so f suggested that from now on when I do my fiddling I wear a mustache so people won't confuse me \vith Roy. But he has a right to feel embarrassed because on account of he sure is good looking compared to me and my b.ild pate and my long ;:nout and my muggy mug, and then, too, he doesn't scrape a fid- •dle to begin with. While wailing for a cup of coffee in a Mason City hotel last Sunday I picked up the telephone book and I found out what makes Mason City a pretty good city rind also what could make it a lot better, so to speak. For instance there are a lot of Scandihoovians over there and that is surrly the foundation of any good town. There are listed in the book 43 Andersons, -14 Christensens. !i Ericksons, 33 Hansons, 12, Jensens, .64 John-; sons, 72 Larsons, 8'3 Nelsons, 78 Olsons, ,(57 .Petersons, 39 Swansons. Apd .those are the .folks who make a. town a peach, so to speak. Then, too, there are a Shortage of many other names which make a good .town. F,pr instance no Chrischilles, no Kresensky, no Waldera, no Gfiossi, no Hutchisons, no Dau, no Falk- enhainer, no Erlander, no Oewel, no Waller, no Hood, no Cretzmeyer, and only one Burgess, only one. tte'rbst, only one Frank!, only one Laing, only one Misbach, only one Pool, only one Spilles, and you can easily see how come,Masqn City lacks regular guys to make it a better town. Don't misunderstand me, Mason City is a cracker-jack of a town, one of Iowa's best, but look how much better it could be, if it had more names like above, It was at> the dinner session of the Lions, the Kiwanis and the Rotarians Thursday noon that I gulped a cup of coffee while Governor Blue just across the table gulped a glass of ice tea. But the governor gulped the tea and apologized for not gulping coffee and stated that he was a confirmed gulper and proud to sit down with guipers in the home town of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Guipers. And he said to me, "But Mr. President, you'll notice that I gulped the ice tea. and next time you are in Des Moines get in touch with me and I'll buy the Java and show you that I am a gulper member 100 per cent". Wm. Larsen, of Tilonka, was a visitor in the Newspapers shop the other day and he's another Dane and is now signed up in the Guipers. Mr. Miller tr.ld me that there were quite a number of Danes in the Titonka neighborhood who should be signed up and he also agreed that "For- gangen Nat Vor Sultne Kat" was a tremendously appropriate Danish theme song but when I suggested that he and Tony pid- riksen and me sing a verse right now he said he'd like to have a bit of rehearsal first because on account of he hadn't warbled any Dane for several years. But he admitted he didn't need any practice at gulping because on account of he had probably gulped several million cups throughout his eighty years. But he's a nice Dane at that. • - • r Sweti City Group To Centennial At Rock Island, III By Mrs. Walter Smith •Swea City —The Rev. /A. M. Youngqitist, P. A.
