*~Alfl»nH UppSr DM Malnii , July 7 6, 194S CHR13 REESE A Lllllo ot ThU, « tllil* et that; Mot MueH of Anything. Yep, 1 had a birthday last Week, th« longest day in the year, and Algona also has another resident whose anniversary falls on the longest day in the year, Mrs. Les Kenyon, and she mailed me a birthday card and admitted she was not a democrat, nor a Dane, but she gulp'ed her coffee. So now Algona can boast of two longest-day-in-the year birthdays. * * * But it remained for the bunch at the postoffice to put a dark spot in the longest day in the year because on account of on iny birthday there was a card, a dun, in my postoffice box which dunned me for a buck for box rent. And here I had hoped the day would prove a happy-go-long day, no duns. I don't suppose the posloffice boys could do otherwise than dun me because on account of it's part of the postal rules and I don't think any of the local fellows arc mad at me. But I'm sure going to take it up with my congressman and see if we can't be :;parcd duns on our ' birthdays. And then, too, I am in favor of the postal department getting some box rent duns printed on some clean cardboard, preferably a green color. The dun in my box was so worn, no co-handled, so grimy that I could hardly read it. Maybe my congressman and me will be able to fine up the local office with some new duns. * 0 4 Maybo you have noticed that I as now hat-less as well as tie- less. For some 72 years or so I've worn .1 hat from early morn till late at night, in fact I'd probably go to bed wearing a hat but the" Mrs. says nix on that. And she also says that the reason I always wear a hat is because on account of maybe somebody told me once that I looked younger wearing a hat. However, I only have some thirty hairs on my pate now and I'm told that the reason for that is the wearing of a hat and 1 the pate doesn't get enough fresh air. So I've decided to go hat-less up to about September 15th. And maybe by Christmas I'll have doubled my hirsute output. I asked Bob .lames what brought on baldness and he said "staying out late" and Roy Christensen said "too much wearing of pate covers, no sun rays, no heat waves, get to your hair" and F. P. Caughey said there was no reason to be ashamed of a bald pate because on account of he knew a lot of men who had nary hair but were just as smart and brilliant as the one who had bushy pate adornment. So there it is, I'm going hatless until September 15th and maybe I won't be so bald-headed next Christmas.

Joe Marsh Will's Hospitality Isn't "Cracked"! Ever since January, Will Dudley planned to give his living room that "new look"—planned to carefully refinish the woodwork and replaster the walls. Every time Will got out the. putty to start filling; in the cracks, a neighbor stopped by to pass the time of day—'and first thing, you knew, there was a group of us helping Will do the job up right. After Will called a halt to the evening's work, we'd sit around the fire en- jpying a friendly argument, and a sparkling; glfiss 1 O'f mellow beer. So Will's living room doesn't look like it did a year ago—but it's by far the most "livable" living room I know: A place you can always drop in for good talk, good beer, and a warm welcome. From where I sit, so long as Will • puts that atmosphere' of hospitality wid good fellowship ahead of everything else, we'll all be happy to hjelp^Wijl change;the looks of his; living room aiiy. time He wants. The other day . Bill , .Thomas | came, down the' street; Wearing t a polka dot tie which'-had colots enough to sing a good tenor, arid, he said he was wearing it to' spite me because on account of; for days he'd gone tie-less and I hadn't took him into my No Necktie club. But he's in now because he jerked the tie off right now. And then I met Joe- Lynch and he was tie-less, and then up the street came Art Rod- gaard, another Dane, and he didn't have on a tie and I could see his throaty Adam's apple, and with him was Joe Bradley and Joe's tie could also have taken a premium at the color art show. And then came Dr. Cretx- meyer and Wade Sullivan, and they both wore ties, but not the wavy and flashy kind, they were a neat bow, neatly tied, and I asked 'em were they wearing garters around their necks and they both said "Could be, but this time you are nuts". And Wayne Mereicr, Titonka, came to town wearing a tie and he told me he had plenty of 'em but would bring 'em here next time he came to the county seat and I could put 'em in cold storage until September 1. No, I didn't attended the G. O. P. convention last week because on account of I'm "still a democrat and the Reese who heads the republicans just wouldn't let me in. I did have a group of Kos- siith democrats lined up to go to Philadelphia and we were making plans to slip Truman in as the nominee instead of Dewey but being as it rained we held off going because the roads in Pennsylvania might be muddy. H. D Hutchins and myself were the Algona delegates and John Uhlenhake was to represent Whittemore. Frank Clark, Titonka, Frank Gronbach, Lu- Verne. A. C. Schissel. Lakota, and Nick Arndorfer, St. Benedict, were to make the trip in one car, while Chas. H. Newel, Fenton, John Karsten. Swea City, George Hagge, Ledyard, and H. E. Rachut, Burt, were driving in the Albert McCarthy Bancroft, car and L. H. Kleinpeter, Wesley and Bill Hammer, St. Joe, had each offered to drag the Algona gonts to Philadelphia. Here were 14 Kossuth democrats ready to don war paint and take over the GOP session in Philadelphia and I feel that we had influence enough to give Dewey and Taft a good political drubbing and Jhen it had to rain and we couldn't make the trip. But we're still for Truman and we'll take up the cudgel against Dew ey later in the year, so to s Copyright, 1948, United Stales Umvers foundation WANT ADS BRINGS RESULTS J?l NOW OPEN TO HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES Tins is important news to cvory young man from 20 1 /-; to 28 who lias graduated from high school or who can pass equivalent education examinations.
