Congratulations to everyone who participated; it was a very fine concert! — GHS— Well, quarter exams are over - now and we can still breathe easier for a couple of days, at least until the report cards come! it was a "three-ring-circus" enitertainment-type weekend for me in Minneapolis, with three major events.. Spot- lightening the trip. First, ifiherc was the . Minnesota, Michigan Stiate^football game in which my .old Alma Mater, a definite underdog surprised a strong favorite by a re- sou rtdirug 21 to 0 victory. Then t^ere^ wis fhe'Viking-•, Baltimore Pro ganie i.wlth 4 * 20 to 20 decision, both games played under sunny skies at 70 degree temperatures. But the most satisfying event of •the .three was/the stage production. Fiddler,on the 'Roof, which played '.tp.j an enthusiastic opening night audience at the Orpheum threatire Monday night. Fiddler on the Roof opens the 1967-8 Theatre Guild sear son and is probably one of the most popular of all the current Broadway stage shows and one which won 'the New York Drama Critics award for "best musical". Headed by a stellar cast, with veteran actor, 'Paul Lipson and Delores Wilson, and ably assisted by capable supporting players, the present production has the flavor of Broadway. Orchestration, choreography and chorus are experflly executed. As Syse of the Chicago Sun-Times sums , it ,uB.V;Mpson projects splen- \ dldlJ-^Deaores; -Wilson ^splendid. A honey of a show." Fiddler on the Roof concludes its present run at the OrpJieum threatre in Minneapolis Saturday evening, Nov. 4th and good seats are still available. I recommend 'it highly to all who are interested in the legitimate stage. It's a rare theatrical treat: see it if all possible.

When Al was only a little shaver his father Andrew Boekelman, then farming southeast of Lakota, taught him how to handle a 22- rifle, which he used' efficiently and without accident. Al has won first place medals and certificates in Minnesota, Iowa and Qlinois^ Hawkeye League, and regional tournaments, also state championships. When asked how :he got on 'the police force here, Mr. Boekelman said he was working in a hardware store at Lakota, and 'hoard a policeman was want: ed at Algona, and came down •here, and after an interview with the mayor he was employed in the spring of 1945 .... (thats 22 years ago and Algona can be proud Al is istill on the police, force today (1967). If a National Guard unit is organized here ill will not be the first one.

The sad new look consists of long skirts clear to the ground. That will cause a "New Look" all right- but the aloresaid "New Look" will be one of consternation, despair, frustration, amusement, and fergorhsak- es, as far as the men are concerned.
