PSPT. OF HISTORY & ARCHIVES DES aor-ISS 19, IOWA ^ 21 NOVEMBER 1957 FAYKTaK, Price Five Cents thru the week with the editor After we went to press last \vcok tho T P* A TiT**T? r\tf i honored with a visit by the state's Chief Executive. Loveless also made a call on his old friend, Art Bentz. It is rumored that Art is going to be Chairman of the Fayette Citi/ens for Loveless next year. Dr. Bowersox p.assed on an interesting bit. He reports that Beethovtn»did not write Ode to Joy. Schiller did. (Read last weeks column?) We were delighted to have our good friend, the self-styled "Creek-Bottom Reuben" over for dinner last Thursday evening. We try to have someone in every week. So I said to Mary the other day, "Let's have Doc and Edna over next week." I was promptly told that we would not have anyone the next two weeks because its Lt. Governor's reception and Thanksgiving weeks. (We'll see y'all Saturday afternoon). Still on politics. Speaker of the House William L. Mooty stopped in at the office the other day. After Saturday, the state's top three political figures will have been in the little college city. Bill will run for Lt. Governor to succeed Nicholas. But, don't tell anybody. Wayne Schictl reports that a certain church in Texas has a unique way of taking up collections. Its all in the plates. If you put in a dollar or more nothing happens. If you put in a quarter a whistle blows. If a dime, a buzzer buzzes. If a nickel, a bell rings. If anything less than a nickel, it .takes your picture. Might work. We'll pass that on to Father Huscher and his fellow clergymen. * • • • * Sometimes lately we've been running short on papers and we have to advertise for them to get our tearsheets for our ad- VOLUME 42 NO. 21 THURSDAY EVENING FAYE1TE HIGH SCHOOL L M; will meet in regular session at 8:00 P.M.
