Summer reading winners will be held in the summer time. Up to flow the court terms hive been affifiged id they come up one in the fail, a couple during the winter months, and • final in the spring, the summer has been "vacation." With trials coming up in the summer months the problem of air conditioning of the courtroom is raised, and at' torneys visited with the supervisors last week about con* ditloning for the summer of 1968. The courtroom becomes almost unbearably hot in the summer and attorneys fear impaired judgment of jurors in hot and humid conditions. total nun>bet of books fetid iltd total number of Winners were a* Third grade - KMhy Die*mum, 120 book 6945 pig*; Diamte Johnson, 94 booto 417? pige*; Kathleen Rodney, 10 books 1313 page*.

They are now giving hints and glimpses of the goodies they will offer this fall—here it is only July and early August! In the meantime they dish up some hash warmed over from the first run of a show thai was dismal to start with. On a new show a person has a bit of hope it will get better toward the end. However on the rerun the viewer remembers that it was dull all the way. * * * THE OLD GOAT didn't cere from which way, how SHOWN ARE THE winners in the library's summer reading contest who received the election went but it prizes at a party held Friday morning on the lawn of the library.

Maybe now the powers that be will arrange to have a ABC network come in to Algona. The Old Goat is hopeful—but not very. He's been fooled too often and is getting crotchety and becoming • real disbeliever in his old age. Maybe Ames " and .Austin will put in a deal to get the viewers in Algona but from an economic standpoint the chances •re not too great. The people have spoken—so the Old Goat will shut up and cuss the NBC and CBS. After all, if he can't see the ABC shows he isn't in a position to cuss them too. * * * SPEAKING OF the idiot tube a show the other night Exclusive Advance Photo by Mike Stillman.

For a week it was a noicy, littered, cluttered happy kind of a rat race. One problem the Old Goat's generation didn't have however is that of the television. There was no plea then to iust watch one more show please, before they were sent off to bed. But on the other hand there's nothing like a TV for the youngster who is bored and hasn't "anything to do". So ifs an unmixed blessing or curse, depending on the point of view. Perhaps the young family can not know the longing of the grand- folks for the days of their youth which they renew in the visits of the grandchildren. They probably don't realize the intensity in which the days and hours •re checked before the arrival. The hours and days drag. And when they are here'the days rush by too soon. And they can not know until they themselves are grandparents the agony that comes when the grandparents know they must leave. That's when bvty-. work if necessary.
