Presbyterians plan 100th year (1957) MONDAY, SEPT. ti, |f*7 to train •t Cliifiytt API Saptombof 17,19S7 AlfMii high Mhool dogs upset EmmeWbufg for the first grid triumph here since 1954. To name heroes in the game would be virtually impossible, but Jim CoWan and Dieter Gainer, who team up to be as good as any halfback in the leagues before the season is over. Tom Potter, Dave Richardson, Francis Bjustrom, Howie Funk, Jerry Rupp, as well as Fosrvaugh. Jergenson, Kern, Harris, Ostrum, Jennings and Discoe had a share in the victory. Neil Colwell was injured and did not play. It was definitely the spirit of the A1- gona team that brought the Victory. These boys have a desire to win! "Maybe it's ju»t at well to have a president play golf raither than international politics. Ike Just gets the ball in the hole—not the country" Hodgepodge. The 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Algona Presbyterian church will be observed next week. The first Presbyterian church was formed in 1857. Among the arrivals in Kossuth county in the summer of 1856 was the Rev, D. S. McComb, an. ordained Presbyterian minister. He took land on the Black Ca». creek a few miles north of Algona. He made no immediate attempt to organize a church but preached in the log cabins of <the families, he later had for members of his church. During the montlhs after he (arrived, he located a number of Presbyterian families and on Sept. 25, 1857, Samuel T. Wells, a traveling missionary in the Presbyterian of Dubuque organized the church with mine families. At present Rev. •Myron H. Brower is minister of the Presbyterian Church. Ma|ny festivities have been planned during the week to commemorate the 100 year anniversary. Kathleen Griffin won her first Algona Country Club golf championship as she defeated Lorrain Smith 1 up in the 18-hole final of the ladies tournament. Mrs. Smitih won the crown several times but this was Miss Griffin's first appearance in the finals. Alice Kretentky was pictured in todays issue of the Advance waving farewell to the New York skyline from the deck of the Holland America liner "S. S. Maasdam", just •before she set sail from New York Harbor bound for Scotland where she will attend the University of Edinburgh for one year. She is a graduate of the college of Wooster. Alica is the daughter of Mrs. Claris Kresensky. A few twitted Mottoes from the Orange City Capital newspaper featured on the Editorial page. "Don't talk about yourself; we'll do that when you leave; If you can't understand it—oppose it; Money isn't everything but it's way ahead of wliatever is in second place; Work facinates me —I can sit and look at it for hours; YouYe certainly trying—very trying; This job is more fun than making money; I spend 8 hours a day here<— do you expect me to work too?; My mind is made up, so don't confuse me with the facts; What can you expect of a day that begins with getting up; Your call has climaxed an already dull day; If you can't convince 'em' confuse 'em!; Money isnX the best thing in the world; I just happen to Ukc it best." These mottoes were written by Carl Hamilton, editor of the Iowa Falls paper. September 16, 1947 The officers club house at the former prisoner of war camp site, now the airport site, is being readied for use of the Country club which has rented the building from the airport commission. The new olub will replace the country club which was burned to the ground in a fire two weeks ago. Algona high school cheer leaders were elected by faculty members and members of last year's student council. Marcelle Putz and Janet Reding were chosen. Cheerleaders from last year are Ruth Arm Reilly and Janice Bartholomew. These four girls will be the J947 1948 Cheerleaders.

A letter from 0. B. Laing school supt. was read by the council, and after some discussion the council decided it was not the function of the tity to see that such signs were properly placed before school distrusted periods. Supi Laing was notified accordingly. (Somewhere along the line the city must have gotten the job tossed back to them again) Val Fuhrmann, well known here and now a big wheat farmer in Netherhill, Satak, Canada, wired for 'help to harvest 2000 acres of wheat, according to Louis Fuhrmann who received the wire. The cry for help met with immediate response and Herman and Florens Faber and Harold Thill, nephews of Val, left last week. The W. A.

It seems to me that you could quite safely use $1,000 of your savings every six months for current living expenses. This is not much more than the interest you are receiving from your savings accounts-. Furthermore, when your accumulation plans mature, they will not only replace the $12,000 you will have drawn out in the intervening years, but will also provide you with dividend income at that time. 0. I bought 30 there* of Gulf A Western Industrie* a little more than a year ego. I have since received an additional 60 share* a* the result of three for one split. I have been told, if I sell these shares I received from the split, I will have to pay taxes. I didn't know I'd have to pay taxes on the split shares. Is this true? A.

One thing about them-they make you wish you had stayed awake in the past years and had absorbed some knowledge! GHS Campaign speeches wore 'given by the nominees for class president on Wednesday, Sept, 13. Seniors nominated were Ronnie Gilbride, Tim Molacek, Jack Mueller and any equity where there is a possibility of a price appreciation as well as income. Q. I have $6,000 invested in a mutual fund specializing in insurance companies and bank accounts. On the whole, those types of stocks seem to bo at their lowest. Should I sell now? A. If there is one thing I ihave learned in 30 years of buying securities, it is that the 'best time to buy a good stock is when the company or its industry is unpopular. Both the insurance and banking industries are very favorably situated for the long-term growth and long term profitability. Both are in disfavor with investors right now; consequently their stocks can be bought for less ' in relation to earnings than has been possible for some time. I can't tell you when stocks in these two industries will sell at higher prices, but I have confidence they will db so. In my opinion, an investor who increases his holdings in good banking or insurance firms at this time is almost the San Francisco Hilton Hotel., September 20-22, 1967.
