•••••••••••••••••••••ft* •-ALOONA (lew*) ADVANCt THURSDAY, FCi. 3, MM, WHY IS IT our hates make more impression on our subconscious state than do our likes? Must be some kind of a perverse way of getting the old Ihinktank steamed up. Anyway that What's My One hasn't been the same since the Old Goat could snort a bit at Dorothy Kilgallen. Just doesn't seem to be anyone to take her place. It's difficult to dislike Arlene Francis or Bennett Cerf though there are some who do. And the guest stars are on only a night and it takes a bit of time to really get going on a personality. * * * , JEEPERS! It is certainly tenwthing to see—that award of the golden globes the other night. The globes weren't the interesting part—what was eye-popping was the way the stars dressed (women stars— silly—men don't wear dres- sesl) The Old Goat was mighty nervous several times that something would give way •nd there'd be a lot of star for the star gazers to gaze •t. Oh well, maybe the men in their monkeysuits did look ridiculous, but they certainly were not living as dangerously as the gals. Wow! * * * ED SULLIVAN is going to break his arm if he continues to pat himself on his back all the time, or else he has a rubber elbow. He got almost maud lin in introducing a Green Beret performer the other night and sounded as if Ed himself was wearing the green bonnet and leading the charge up San Juan hill. His kowtowing to celebrities in the audience is a joke to everyone but the honored person for whom Ed whoops it up with a "let's hear it for good old fatso". It's no TV secret that most are planted in the audience and are just there long enough to get introduced and they hike to the nearest bistro to take a bit of tonic after the ordeal. * * * IT MUST BE OBSERVED that Micky Rooney is certainly snakebit as far as his women are concerned. Mickey has gone through as many fortunes as he has marriages, but this last sad affair topped •II of his troubles. It's kind of sickening to have such things going on in the world, •nd Micky deserves some sympathy. 1 * * * A FRENCH DESIGNER has come up with what he calls the nude woman look, and by golly, if the resporters are right he danged near gets the job done. Seems these new sheath tight deals are molded to the woman. That means she can't wear any unmentionables under them—hence the nude woman is only a few stitches away from disaster. Frankly the poor dears look just awful but if some French guy says that's style they'll wear it if it kills them. Probably no one but the practical Old Goat would wonder how they keep their stockings up? Or do they wear them? Judging from TV actresses and singers in the tight deals there isn't a shadow of a doubt they don't wear a durned thing. And they can't sing for sour apples either. So there! * * * THE OLD GOAT has come up with an original idea—at least it's original to the Old Goat and he has durned few ideas. Anyway the Old Goat thinks these movie and other actresses keep their maiden names because they're changing husbands so often it would be confusing. Imagine that Miss Yick makes a picture tnd before it's released she's Mill Yack, and by the time she's recognized as Miss Yick iht'i Miss Yuck. That kind of makes sense doesn't it? And it selves the problem of keeping track of who is married to whom at the moment. FER GOSH SAKfS why do ifee newspapers and magazines picture these exercises with girls who don't need it? Why not have some fat old dame do the twists and stuff. And by the same token why do the fashion shows feature slwn models showing the -gowns to a of fat old dajnes who wear them? fen't it silly! Susan Nitchals engaged MR. AND MRS. Louis W. Nitchals, Algona, announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Susan, and Anthony G. Coloff, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Petroff, Mason City. Miss Nitchals is a graduate of Garrigan high school and St. Joseph Mercy school of nursing, Mason City. Mr. Coloff graduated from Mason City high school, Mason City junior college, and attended the state university of Iowa. BIRTHDAY SUNDAY Scott, son of Mr. and Mrs. Archie Umbrel, of Spencer, will be three years old Feb. 6 and a family dinner will be given in his honor at ,the home of his parents. In attendance will be the grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Dahlhauser, and Mr. and Mrs. Archie Umbrel Sr. of Ayrshire, the great grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Bert Muckey, Mrs. Anna Umbrel of Ruthven, and Mrs. Carl Dahlhauser.

Irving ton By Mae McLean •••••••••••••••••••••••*> The Clyde Dudleys drove to Omaha last week Monday morning to meet Mrs. Dudley's brother, L. A. DeSart, Las Vegas, Nev. They stopped at Lake City and picked up two other brothers, George and Harold DeSart. Clyde stopped off at home at City, visited Mr. Robison'8 sister, Mrs. Hazel Sabin, here Monday. Mrs. ft. 0. Davis returned home last week after two weeks at the daughter, the Dick Fellins, Emmetsburg. Mrs. Da* vis took care of the son Joe while Mrs. Fellin was in the hospital. The new son's name is Richard Dail, and was born Jan. 17. . Group plans an Old-Fashioned "Bean Supper" The Kossuth County Historical Society is about to renew an old custom which was traditional in early Algona, and so will hold a Bean Supper on Washington's Birthday, the traditional date. It will be served at the Algona VFW Hall from 5 to 7:30 on Tuesday, Feb. 22. There will be entertainment throughout the serving time. It is hoped that the present generation will be interested enough to support the project which, in the early days, was one of the social highlights of Algona's winter season. Originally planned by the GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) there are many mentions made in old time Algona newspapers of the event. Back' in 1886, the Feb. 22 meal was served in the County Court House and 500 to 600 people were fed a bountiful supper. Various local groups furnished music and among speakers were Mayor Call and Harvey Ingham. The proceeds, well over $100, went to 'relieve families of needy soldiers. Again in 1897, the meal served at the Courthouse was well patronized with tickets selling for 35 cents to adults and 25 cents for children. Among speakers were long deceased Dr. Sheets, J. B. Jones, the Rev. Barnard and Geo. E. Clark. The next year, it is reported, no meal was served, and so there "was a small crowd for the Washington's Birthday celebration; •< In 1890 the WRC, (Womens 1 Relief Corps) an auxiliary of GAR, took over the project serving at the Court House, which seems to have been the only place large enough, and achieved a huge success, with many diners coming from neigh- borning towns. The newspapers report speeches galore and music by several local groups. And the profit from the meal, about $80, was to be used to pay off the mortgage on a Civil War veteran's widow's home.

Judy Coleman Mrs. Margaret Kent, Algona, received word Monday from her daughter Margaret, Washington, D.C., reporting 21 inches of snow there. All methods of transportation were virtually at a stand still and most people were not expected to get to work. Margaret is employed with the Acacia Life Insurance Co. there. Visitors at Herman Becker's Sunday were the Richard Farrells, Sioux City, and Gary Ludwigs and Shane. The Farrells visited Saturday with Richard's parents, the Vernis Farrells, Emmetsburg. Harold Colwell, who recently spent a week hospitalized in Iowa City, returned home January 21 and has returned to his work with the Welp Co., Baa- croft. He is scheduled to return to Iowa City in three weeks. The August llobisons, Swea By 1907 the annual observance took place in the old Armory which stood in the block where the. Algona' Theater now is located. Since the aging members of GAR and WRC were no longer to carry on, it was then decided to turn the management of the affair over to the Sons of Veterans organization. So in 1908 that was done and $130.00 was cleared at the annual Bean Supper where Dr. Morse, Judge Coyle, T. P. Harrington, and Rev. Torbett were speakers. In 1909, it was reported that the tables were filled twice; the food excellent, and program good with Col. Spencer and Mrs. D. H. Goeders among the speakers. In 1910 very bad weather kept the crowd down but again the papers report good food, a fine social time, and on the program, a reading by Dot Carlon (Mrs, D. P. Smith), music by Camilla Wilson and a chorus of girls. In 1912, the meal was served at the Woodman Hall, but later seems to have been discontinued. Now in 1966, it is the hope of the Historical Society to renew an old tradition, not only for Algonians, but county-wide, and it is hoped that many of the younger people who do not remember the annual Bean suppers will become interested. Mrs. Wayne Keith is chairman of the food committee and the menu will consist of: Baked Beans, Boston Brown Bread (like Mother used to make), baked Ham, Cabbage salad, rolls, butter, jam, Lady Washington cake, coffee, and milk. Fred Plumb will look after the dining room and tables; Stewart McFadden will arrange for entertainment; and Dr. L. R. Potter is in charge of advance ticket sales. They will be sold for $1.25 for adults and 75 cents for children under 12. Many will assist who live in various parts of the county to make this a real Community affair with people of all ages participating in a traditional celebration of Washington's Birthday, and the Historical Society is hoping that many will be interested enough to support their efforts.
