K. HUMPHRY \\ hen a person lives to the wonderful age of 97 vr.us anil in tin- same community it can only mean that In- knew richness oi life, and especially life in our area. In passing Walter KemptUome Humphry leaves behind .i i(-(<n I <ilion unmarked and a host of friends all over earned ihi'ouuh years of life. Mr. Humphry was born in 1960 even before the Inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. And he was born in a Ins; cabin, over in lllyria township. His memory must have encompassed all the rich years of Iowa's and Fayel le s growth. As a public servant Mr. Humphry held the position i.l layette County Supervisor from 1922 until 1934. Mining this time the old county court house burned. Mr. I lumphry served on the building committee that replaced llie old with the present one. So, it too, will stand as a monument to his long life and his service to his country. Besides any material monument- his long life and his many triends will serve the same purpose.

Westfield Worthy Winners The Westfield Worthy Winners 4 -H club met Saturday at the home of Kolleen Anfinson. Eleven girls answered roll call which was "My Favorite Fruit". We have two new members, Sherryl Miller and Carol Schuety. Judy Langerman gave a demonstration 'Darning those darn Our next meeting will be with Joyce Oelberg on July 12. Janis Bennington Reporter We met this friendly fellow in the doorway of the G & B Cafe. He said "hi Jones, what-do-you- know?", then added, "if you can't prove it, you don't know it". Oh yes? II there was any reason for so doing, we would be willing to testify under oath that there is an Echo Uiver deep within the caverns of Mammouth Cave. We not only saw it, but had a boat ride on it. On the other hand, we wouldn't under any circumstance testify that there is an Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone Park. We have never been near the place. But we have been told about Old Faithful by enough people in whom we have enough faith and trust, that we just as firmly BELIEVE there is an Old Faithful as we KNOW there is an Echo river. Get it ??? The teen-age "hot rodders" in and around a nearby small town were getting quite "out of hand", the local "nightwatch" couldn't cope with the situation. So the "city fathers", the "top brass" of the little city quietly contacted an efficient day-time police officer of a bigger town, hired him at ten bucks per evening, to come and (put some teeth into the law. But there was a "Judas" within the "inner circle". The word leaked, and the imported cop's evenings have been quiet to the degree of dull. The errant teenagers have been so VERY GOOD that angel-food cake would be a fitting diet for them. What a wonderful way to spend some of the tiny city's tax money. • • « • • Recently we were reading that some banks were going to tighten up the "tight money" policy to the degree that it would be near as hard to get into debt as it usually is, to get out. We thought to ourself, now maybe they got something there. But the very next morning, that "commercial" came in over the radio. "Quick and friendly loans for all legiti­ mate needs. Just pick out the boat and motor your heart desires, then see "Mr. P. B. Ild "for a loan to fit your budget". Boats and motors are great stuff, yes indeed. But the very idea of a city bank seeking to make loans to buy speedboats, by radio com mercials, at breakfast time. If that bank goes flat on their fanny brok, it will serve them their just desserts. One of the differences between a man and a woman, is ... a woman will give a dollar for ai> article worth two dollars, if she NEVER uses it. A man will gladly give two dollars for an article worth a dollar, if it's something he wants. (There are other differences.)
