Aljona KOHuth THURSDAY, NOV. M, 1H7, ALOOWA, IOWA JULIAN CHLtiiCMIUli 3^*~ "fritt *** ty ft* li.fr THEME WERE a few chuckles at an annual meeting of a local church when the Treasurer's report for the year was read by a substitute . . ."I'm sorry but the treasurer is in Florida," he reported to the congregation, "and the assistant treasurer is in Minneapolis.." The bank balance at the time was $18.16. Speaking of religion, isn't it ironic that we are afraid the waiter will be insulted if we don't leave him at least a 10 r r tip but how few of us give 10',; to the church without fear we are insulting God. SEEMS THE Algona high school gal* take their football pretty seriously too ... tht Bulldogs want through an eight game schedule with just a couplt of minor injuries but two freshman young ladies ware not so lucky as they partci- pated in the A. H. S. "Powder Puff" football game the other night . . . Lynn Erickson received a broken nose during prt- game practice and another freshman, Lori' Calhoun, carried her arm in a sling after spraining it in the game with the sophomores. .''•:-.. EVERY MAN knows,the lassitude he feels when he sinks into the soft barber chair for a haircut . . . the warmth of the shop, the buzz of the electricjclippers and the rythmic sounds of the '.shears can put most any gent to sleep in a matter of seconds . . . that's why we were amused to read that the immortaKW. C. Fields, probably the funniest man that ever lived, had a barber chair installed in his living room durng one seige of insomnia and found it ideal for taking quick naps during the daytime! ONE OF FIVE coaches chosen to help in the IDPA All-State football selections was Beanie Cooper, Garrigan's personable grid coach . . . the coaches were selected from different areas in the state and worked with 10 Iowa Daily newspapermen (including Bob Brown of Fort Dodge) to make the final team selections. : . . Beanie reports that .lack Muller was ranked the 15th best back in the state by the coaches and officials who were polled in the balloting.-. THE COACHES in the North Central Conference got together the other day and picked Clear Lake as the favorite in the loop basketball race this winter . . . Algona won the crown with a 13-1 mark last year but the Bulldogs and Iowa Falls are rated as only darkhorses while Webster City is given the pick as the leading challenger. CHESTER LONG was a store owner (Long Bros.) in Algona for many years and apparently a little of his merch- andising'interest has rubbed off on his daughter, Trudie, now Mrs. -Wallace Clow of California ... . Inez Wolfe brought in a clipping from a Lodi, Calif., newspaper with a feature story on the Clows shortly after they purchased a 103-year old Victorial style home in that community. . The home was built in 1864 and the Clows have left it pretty much as it was except for decorating and painting. ; T.rudit> js an^anUcjue c<>Jle\ftou an&the Jtomevisiideal-for?her in- •tefests T.~. but besides~that, she"Has now opened an old fash- ionedjGeuntry Store in a building near the home'.,.. ..she said she got the idea because she remembered .the pleasure she had in helping her father here . .. her mother, Mrs. Minnie Long, lives with the daughter and son-in-law. X '* * * v WE ALWAYS get a chuckle out of the Des Moines Register All-State teams. They are nowhere near as representative as the IDPA teams which are selected by coaches and officials . . . they are generally dominated by southern Iowa teams ... but the joke of this year's selections can be appreciated by. taking the small town of Tripoli in northeastern Iowa . .the town's population is only 1,179 and granted the club was a good one (undefeated) but they landed a man on the fourth team, another on the fifth and three rated honorable mention. Now isn't that carrying things a little too far?

Mrs. Lyle Newel gave the lesson on Youth and Mrs. Clarence Gingrich gave the spiritual gona audience Saturday eve ning., Speaking at a Kossuth county Democratic fund raising dinner, Franzenburg said, "The next session the Iowa legislature must assign top priority to governmental reorganization. Through the years departments and agencies have been created without any thought of combining functions with already existing departments. This has resulted in needless duplication and too much confusion. Past legislatures have acknowledged the problem but have not given reorganization the priority it deserves." "Just one example of duplication lies in the area of interstate trucking/Now," said Franzenburg. "interstate truckers are regulated by and accountable to four separate agencies. This surely must be irritating to truckers and does not speak well for coordination in state government." Franzenburg said that the next legislature is not bound to follow all recommendations of the recent Public Administration-Service study of Iowa's government. This study suggested that Iowa government be reduced to 13 agencies, compared to the 120 existing state departments "Hopefully," said Franzenburg, "the PAS study provides a framework for change and will not meet the fate of past studies, that of being totally ignored. lowans can only receive the full benefit of their tax dollar if state government is allowed to be efficient and businesslike." noon with Mrs. Clifford 'MYF of the Fenton Metho- dist church met Wednesday evening with Kithy Mortenson as hostess.
