It was the other day, hotter 'n blaxes, that Chief Dennis McGinnis was marching up and down the main drag and was making marks on car tires and I'm "agin" marking my car up because on account of then I'll have to wash it some time and the chief offered to give my ja- loppe a good scrubbing, and from now on he's going to 'have the cops tie a blue ribon on the bus instead of making marks on it. And he's got something there. Ang Eugene Hutchins thinks that is a good idea and wants the boys to lie a green ribbon on his car to mutch the color, so to speak. And Ted Chrischilles says they'll have to tie white ribbons on his bus to match its cleanness, but they can let the ribbon tieing go by, the board if the city will give him an eraser so he can rub out the markings they make with the crayons, so to speak. But. pcrijonaiy, I think that the ribbon stunt is a good one. The other day I was making a chive northwest of town and I called at the Bill Dodds place and when I stai-ted to tell Bill who I was he said: "Never mind. 1 knuv,' ynu because on account .of a guy never would forget a mug like you lug around." And he's got something there. And then when I was at the Hubert O'Brien place he offered me a buck an hour if I'd do some corn plowing and which I can't do and when I asked him where did Leo Kollasch live ho said "Right west of the ditch, west of here, and watch out you don't fall in." And when I got to the Kollasch place there was the ditch, O. K., but they had a bridge over it and I didn't get my feet wet and Leo said there wasn't enough water in the ditch to cover my nether extremities and I don't believe in wet feet anyway. And so I then signed him up in the Gulpers and he admitted that Mrs. Kollasch was the better gulper of the two. Q Maybe you have checked over the pictures of the Weidenhoff personnel printed in the paper and there you have the membership roll of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers unit at the Weidenhoff plant. At a meeting held at 4:30 last week the Weidenhoff unit elected officers as follows: President, R. F. Marcy: vice president. Wm. E, Watts; secretary, J. C. Story; treasurer, F. G. Cortright; members of the board, L. G. Wiley, .Dick Schweger, Betty Blanehard, Pauline Medicke, Everett Peterson and Wm. M. Funk. The committee on tasting is made up of Don Gudorian, Simon Hirner, Jaines Schenck, Pierre Gil.lette and Malt Ivapp. The checking committee (the group which is to cheek on how much gravy the gulper puts in the cup) is made up of Page Thompson. Rodell Riifsch, Elmer Shellum and Ernest Hutchirison. And the feminine personnel of the Weidenhoff Gulper Club has organized the Lady Gulpers Auxiliary and at a session held at 5:30 last week elected the following officers: The president, Eileen Lieurancc; vice president, Grace Kouba; secretary, Georgia Lee, treasurer, Ruth Butts; board members, Beverly Ditsworth, Ariene Thill, Maxine Shipler, Dorothy Currans, Phyllis Christensen, Ruth Kollasch, Ellen Marshall and Blanche Lage. The tasting committee is made up of Marjorie Engle, Ruth Miller. Lv- dia Seegebarth, Frances Beitx, and Patricia Gilbride. The committee on the proper stance when gulping from a saucer is made up of Sarah Schmit, Minnie Gronbach, lola Anderson, Leon a Potter, Delores Bowman, Viola Beck and Mildred Funk. The auxiliary plans on meetings once a week for general business activities of the club as well as twice daily, 10 and 3, for gulping. Java in a day, all of 'em Rood at it. But it remains for James Alex to prove the most able in stancing his cup, always giving the right angle to the little finger, the right twist of the wrist and the proper gulp when he is taking on his Jave. I repeat, I'm sure all swelled up over getting that bunch of swell men and women gulpers into the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers, so to speak. Q L- And there is a bunch of guys out there who also belong to the No Neck-Tie Club because on account of the other night when a group of 70 Weidenhoffers put on a party at the country club for James Jackson, as soon as a gent entered the room if he wore a tie a committee of 7 waited upon him and a minute later the tie adorned a nail on the rafter and in several cases there are going to be new ties purchased because on account of all of the members wear a tie when they go to church and especially when the boss, (the Mrs.) insists that they choke themselves up for an occasion with a cravat. Yep, it just looks to me like that Wei- denhoff gang, the big shots, the workers, the whole group, is made up of regular good guys and girls and I'm glad they are a part of the best town in the U. S. — Algona. Spitting Charge Brings $5 Fine In a justice court case, Marjorie Engle was fined S5 and costs by ^Justice J. B. Johnston on a charge of assault and battery filed by Mrs. Oscar Romer. Mrs. Romer said Mrs. Engle spit on her during an argument, Sunday. The defendant denied the charge, but paid the fine. Donald Backman, West Bend, was fined $5 and costs on a charge of operating a motor vehicle with faulty equipment. Edward Reding, of Irvington, charged with not having an operator's license, was fined $2.50 and costs. James W. Domek, Cylinder, charged with drunkenness, was fined $10 and costs. All these cases were before Justice Johnston. Mayor Frank .Kohlhaas fined L16yd.Pratt-$5 and costs, July 8, on a charge of speeding in-the only case in that court the past few days.

Basement House Permit Granted A routine rnecling of the city council was held at the city hall last Thursday fright. A building permit was issued to Mrs. O. E. Butterworth to build a basement house on North Hall Street. Estimated cost was $2000. Thrc other minor building permits were also granted. Bids for the new furnace at. the city sheds was shelved until »the next meeting when bids will be granted. The council also voted to turn the maintenance of the new Jaycee sponsored tennis courts over to the park board. A property owner on McGregor street urged the council to pave between the Northwestern tracks on that street. The council tabled the matter. A resolution was also passed to fix the grade on South Moore Street from Kennedy Street to Oyermyer Drive. A plan for a 50th anniversary book of the Algona light plant was brought up, but further arrangements arc pending on that project.

Instead Patrolmen Dick Meehan of Algona and L. W. Dickinson of Humboldt, who was riding with him, were answering a call to Renwick.. There was no fatality, but a man did receive a broken shoulder in a crash one-half mile north of '.here. I am surely tickled pink because of the Weidenhoi'i personnel, 124 men and women gulpers, now become regular Gulpers, a part of the-8,000 membership roll in the U. S. W. M. Harks, executive vice president and general manager, has been selected honorary president, and I've seen him gulp his Java, and Mrs. Harks also is an adept at the Java gulping art. Then, too. there's Jack Story, along with his gulping proclivities, also an'»rtist with the coffeii cup. And it has developed that there is a friendly contest daily between R. F. Marcy and Page Thompson and Everett Peterson as to who and Kossuth Steers Top City Market Chicago, July 9—What is believed to be the highest per-head price ever paid for a straight load of cattle on the open market went for some Iowa-fed steers at the Chicago stockyard this wetek. Quinn and Merron, cattle feeders of Kossuth county, had a load of Hereford steers at Chicago on Wednesday which averaged 1.773 pounds per head and brought $37.75 per hundred. This yielded an average pe? head price of $669.30. * Market officials said these were the heaviest cattle to be marketed here in three weeks. In June Anders Mathers, of West Branch. Cedar county, sold 11 head of heavyweights which brought an averigt ut $639.35 per head and one steer, which weighed 2 tun. yielded .5720:09; CHRBSCH1LLES STORE verybody's talking about the Goss-gP strapless bra!
