• Algona (Iowa) AeVincO THURSDAY, AUG. 10, 196; • •^••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••*V Around Algona by ONIETA DIDKIKSEN Phone 295-260$ MAM >. I. D. THESE OURNED throw away gimicks that come in the mail saying you may have won a few million dollars or some crazy thing like thai give the Old Goat the whim whams. The Old Goat never won anything when tit. 1 chances arc less than the billion to one or so- forth that these things suggest. One of tihe things that is latest is a deal in which you match a dollar bill number with one listed. If the number is iden- ticali 'you get a lot of fabulous gifts including much moo- lah. The Old Goat is suspicious the guys that promote- this-'haifc every one -of these bills •safely locked up IICIILM no big winners. Anyway — with the billions of such pieces of mail sent out the chances arc 1 remote that the real winner will bring in or send in the winner — too many peopk toss them away. So actually the promoters don't take too much of a chance they'll have to pay off. The sticker is that just possibly a fellow might •have the winner. But don't bet on your's. • * • THE DOODLETOWN Pipers are a good clean looking, good singing, attractive group and the show when they are on camera is good. But those two comdeians • are a bit too much too many times. Why not cut them down to a skit or two and let the kids sing more? Even the puppet is smart enough not to get over-exposed on the show. Some of these comdeians are as funny as a busted crutch to a man with two busted legs. And this pair does the same stuff until it gets nauseating. The sad P'rt is the singing kids are so good most listeners endure the junk to get to listen to the kids again. --.-,.. . ' * * * WISH WHOEVER is promoting it would get on dh c bail and got ABC for us local yokels. The Old Goat fumed over the all-star Packers snowstorm and had to settle mostly to listening to the music on the Welk show. Probably most in this area will have to settle for watching Mankato or Fort Dodge. But when the Fort Dodge station puts o:> some local-interest deal the Old Goat is ready to climli the walls when he wants co watch Johnny Carson. Or when Mankato has that band wagon local deal instead of the network, the Old Goal walks on the ceiling with the greatest of ease, screaming like an irritated banshee. And it seems when the Fort Dodge station has a good show too often all the viewers can see is that "network trouble" apology. • * * THE MONKEYS were in Iowa's capitol city the other day and a motly-looking crew they were. And they were surrounded by silly screaming girls. Sad it was the paper that depends on Iowa played them up. It's this kind of thing that makes them rich by leading silly girls to spend their parents' hard-earned money to listen to the sad kind of music they put out. Frankly the Old Goat thinks any self- respecting monkey would be ashamed of anything like that called after his breed. * * * HEY NOWI This has gone too far. Horses are banned on the streets of Virginia City. Nev.! Migosh this will 'make those TV shows look pretty silly with horses on the main street instead of cars. Tourists are particularly, clobbered because most of them rent a horse and ride up and down making lilce Wild Bill Annie. The Old Goat takes a dim view of horses, and the horses take a dim view of the Old Goat preferring to give him a nip with r teeth the veterinarians Mr, and Mrs. Mare Moore where he had been stationed, flew to Ariaona on July 25 Harold recently re-enlisted and back on July 31, going for his second six year term for the funeral of Mrs. Moore's m the Navy and \vill now at- sister, Mrs. Edith Brandt, 73, tend school at San Francisco held on July 27 at the Chapel for one year, of Light in Scottsdale.
