•eeeee*eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee THE WEDDING OF Luci and her soldier boy will be getting the women all ga-ga in the next few weeks arid the whoopla is dished up by the sob sisters in the journalism business. Probably no detail will be missed by these feminine dispensers of the passionate fluff of the romance. The wedding is not going to be at the White House so the news- beagles can get in on it at the church. However the reception is going to be at the White House and some of the new- shens will be gnashing their teeth because they all can't wrangle an invitation.

II he hasn't seen anything yet of momentous decisions brought on by a wedding. Making the guest list is going to be a little daisy of a chore, in fact a Texas-size headache. By the time he gets through with the hassle he 11 wish his girls had been boys. * * * WELL ZSA 2SA ha« taken the Filth. Not tho amendment but hutband. The Old Goat iin't too sure ho'i qualified to ftpeak on Zta Zta'i wedding careen, but like almott ev eryone eta he consider* that no bar. Frankly the Old Goat thinks she's ho ball of fire and most of her appeal Is her offbeat conversation and accent. She has a kittenish manner but tho Old Ooat will bet she has claws to match an old tomcat when she's in the mood for a bit of scratch' ing. The Old Goat always wonders what the comment of the other gents in her life would be. It's a shame the Old Goat can't hoar them, but they have to keep silent like gentlemen and let the new guy find out for himself. THIS IS A HORRIBLE example to set. Seems a-Chicago man was being sued for divorce, by his wife. She was discontented about something orfother. To patch things up he got her an air-conditioned all-white fully- equipped Cadillac. ; That did it for the moment at least. Shucks —for a new white Cadillac the guy could have caught a fresh one. It doesn't seem to the Old Goat much) of a > bargain, but then the Old Goat doesn't know what ah all-white Cadillac costs or how much alimony the gal had the poor fellow stuck for. It might be the cheapest way out at that. • • '- ; # * ' * THE PAPERS are getting downright personal on the woman's page with that frank talk about what the women are going to wear for undies with the new short skirts. It seems now there,are some designed to be shown! So what! After shorts, bathing suits, and those dangod tight pants there i§n f t too much mystery about how the form divine is constructed.

HONSBRUCH DRUG — ALGONA Laird ends 18 years of service as head of Red Cross By Erma Loa Deim Eighteen years of service to the people of Kossuth County ended recently for Mrs. Cidney Laird. She has served as Executive Secretary of the Red Cross in Kossuth County since 1948. Prior to that time, she receiv« ed a citation for her volunteer work. It read, "In recognition of meritorious personal service performed for the nation, for tier armed forces and suffering humility in the Second World War." She began her work In 1948 as Red Cross secretary and after a ten day training program in St. Louis, Mo. was Executive Secretary for the county. Branches of the Red Cross are located in each town in the county with volunteer personnel in charge. THEN, AS NOW, the cases handled by Red Cross were varied. Requests for money loans to service men, emergency loans to families or persons in time of disaster, aid to transients and indigents are ; among the types of cases referred to and given aid by the local chapi- ter.' • , -' '. • '':•; In earlier years if a-resident in the county reported, an illness, death or other family problem and had need for a serviceman who was a member of the family to come home this to be in a bad way— either let everything sag or wear long skirts and be out of style. * "*• if . ' • AFTER ALL of the dirt-dragging the jury finally found that Texas gal and friend innocent of bopping her millionaire husband on the noggin to lay him away permanently. Whether justice was done is up to those who like to speculate on it but the whole affair was a bit on the sordid side— a good bit on it. Sometimes it seems such, shenanigans as aired in the courtroom should be kept out of news reports, but then it takes all kinds to make a world, and people do choose playmates. • their own course of action was taken; the Algona Chapter contacted by wire the Field Director of the American Red Cross, one of whom was located in every army and naval base in the world. The Algona office would receive a reply if leave was or was not granted and when the party would, depart and arrive. Now there is an Overseas relay station in Washington, D.C. which is open day and night and is dialed by telephone from here. In years gone by donations of bedding, clothing, shoes, etc. Were kept in a closet in the,office and anyone in need could have the items they needed. ANOTHER phase of the help given, and not familiar to most people, was aid to transients especially during the early fifties. The transient was usually picked up or came to the Red Cross office asking for a place to sleep or food. In either case provisions were made for their needs. Often the transients would be a family. Maybe their car had broken down .and their funds had been spent for repair so the Red Cross came to .their rescue. On occasion some traveled with this in mind but contact with Red Cross offices put. the secretary onto their scheme! The .work of the Executive Secretary was not an 8 to 5 office job. Many, many times help was given while the rest of the town slept, oblivious to a neighbor in need. ALGONA, LuVerne, and Wesley are Kossuth towns in which a special fund drives for the Red Cross are not held, as they are included in the United Fund. Naturally, during and right after World War II, the fund drives netted three times more than today. A certain percentage is left in the Kossuth Chapter and the rest used at National Headquarters in St. Louis, Mo. Mrs. Laird's plans for the fu- ;ure have taken her to Florida on an extended visit. THE OLD GOAT likes the Jimmy Dean show, a bit of cornpone country music, sung in tune and in time with the orchestra or guitar. It's quite a relief after such items as Sammy Davis' off-beat singers, the yelping on the Ed Sullivan bur- leque, and assorted other moaners and flat singers. The Dean singers have a happy face instead of that gosh-awful painful expression so many of the song- murderers have. Sad part it is on ABC and you have to take the TV snow with it. By the way the male chorus is reminiscent of Mitch . Miller's Sing Along, with the singers actually in har mony.
