N , 0g|..y. . ,^MO«Y.O«t.t»,mr dlcm Pair crowned king and queen , at Swea City flifii ^PVIV^FV §Y JULIAN CHRIICHIUIft "Met hwri * ft* THE SADDEST DAY for any family is the day they lose their dog ... by the same token, the happiest is when they get a new one . . . we've lost one and gained one in the past few weeks and the kids have run the gauntlet of canine emotions ... ten or 11 years ago, we walked out of the office one fall day and saw a cute little tan puppy on the sidewalk ... he wiggled up to us and he found a home and we'd found a family dog . . . 'Corky was part of the family, as any dog becomes, until his heart gave out a few weeks ago. He was 11 years old we recall and that's equivalent to 64 for a human being. So we buried our little pooch with dignity in the back* yard ... No. 2 and 3 sons dug the grave and there weren't any dry eyes when we covered the box with dirt . . . dad's were the wettest, 1 can assure you. Mom's frequent threats of "We'll never have another dog when this one goes" faded into obscurity after a few weeks and it was' HER idea that we get a Collie puppy . . . especially after Sara took her over to see one owned by Algona newcomers Mr. and Mrs. Bob Cramer. So on a recent trip to Minneapolis we scanned the want ads for pups and spotted one from Mankato, which was ideal for we'd be halfway home when we picked up the dog and they do get nervous ... we found the farm and in back of the garage were the parent Collies and seven little puppies . . . now if you think it is easy to pick out a pup from seven wiggling, yipping jmd nervous pups then you've never bought a dog . . . "How's that one?", you remark and point to a favorite but by the time your wife follows your finger, he is lost in the mad scramble. But you pick one out finally and grab him after a couple of futile tries as all seven attempt to escape their fenced-in enclosure at once ... the mother barks forlornly as she sees the first of her litter of seven disappear in your arms . . . and then you are home with just one accident enroute and the kids go wild and the puppy checks out all the new smells of the house and it's almost like having a new baby. You almost feel guilty loving this little, furry newcomer so much when.it has just been a few weeks since you said goodbye to another loved one! •WHEN WE GREW up, our dads and moms were always telling us "Now when I was a child ..." There are few parents nowadays who could say that to their children about school . . . these kids are learning things in fifth and sixth grades that we got as a junior and senior just 25 years ago. Which brings me to a point — what are they trying to prove? Do they think this generation is going to be happier because they studied two and three hours every night. Teachers pour the work to high schoolers so that they have little or no free time to have fun. I'm against it. This generation isn't going to be any smarter than mine and they might just not have as much fun. I didn't take a book home in four years of high school and I bet I remember just as much of what I learned as they will 25 years from now! HATS OFF to Russ Guster ... in our memory, the Algona high school band is the only band in the conference to play the school song of the visiting team in both basketball and football. This is a nice way of welcoming the: visitors and Russ should |be .commended for this practice! .'^ £• CMy; Swea Cily Community School's Homecoming Festivities began Friday after* noon with a parade thru town ' at 2:15 ending at Reynolds Park.
