•~AIOONA (l*wt) AOVAHCI TMUMOAY, AHMt .11, IfM I A1N SUM JUUAN CHMSCHIUIS ^i^i^fc fl|L^j^^^| ' &£l'•" ''Ajwyl^ SCOTT BUCHANAN and Rex Post Were asked to make the drawings for the Izaak Walton prizes at the close of the Sportarama festivities Sunday afternoon. Names of persons registered were placed in a wire fish basket. The boys took turns in reaching for the winning names, For the drawing of the radios donated by Coast-to-Coast, Scott reached way, way down near the bottom of the basket and drew out his own name! Then the League had a prize for the lad who drew out the numbers but when there were two boys they were to choose a number between 1 and 20 to see who received a Scout knife and fork kit. The winning number was 11. Rex guessed the number to be 14 and Scott said 10 — thus winning twice in the last few minutes of the Sporta- rama. AND THEN there WM tht old, rock-ribbed Republi. can who asked that hit ashes IM sent to tht Internal Revenue office after have it till" his death with this note, "Now you , BILL KIRKLAND of Kirk's, Shoe Store made a recent visit to St. Louis and went out to the ballpark to see the Card's opener ... the gent he sat beside introduced himself and after the pair exchanged complimentaries, he asked if Bill would like to meet a couple of famous ballplayers ... the stranger took him down to a box seat where he met Jesse Haines, the all-time top Cardinal pitcher with the most wins in club history, and Red Schoendist, one of the best of all St. , Louis second basemen. Incidentally, the Cardinals were honoring Haines that night. '• IT'S SELDOM there is much on TV nowadays that is even of passing interest but the Academy Awards program over ABC (Ames and Austin) promised to be an enjoyable ' two hours ... but all anyone got is "snow" on their TV screen in this area and it's just another good reason" why "Cable i TV would be welcomed by many. " ' ; , ' Some of the top programs of the day are coming from ABC including lots of major sporting events but reception here at best is poor. Programs on TV today are absolutely the worst in history and "Where's Everett," a pilot film on , an invisible baby last Monday, certainly was a new low. : What with the lousy selection; at least Cable TV would s give us a choice of the "best of the worst" to watch! A DISPATCH from Washington Tuesday reported that James Roosevelt claims he was misquoted in accounts attributing to Roosevelt criticism of U. S. policy in Southeast Asia . . . as one of hundreds of newsmen in the Fort Des Moines Grand Ballroom Saturday night in Des Moines, listening to Roosevelt's speech, we can tell you he has not been misquoted. Most of the audience was amazed at his attack on President Johnson's foreign policy. Roosevelt said we never should have got involved in Viet Nam until we knew there 'was a stable government, which there is not now and which he thought was unlikely after the coming elections, ' Roosevelt, eldest son of the late President and Eleanor Roosevelt, impressed his audience as a level-thinking and sincere man. He is working for the United States in the U. N. in 'the economic and social division of the U. N. and feels unless we can come up with a government program which offers some hope for the under-developed countries of:the world, this .country is doomed because we won't have enough men to fight .all the battles we will be called to fight around the World. , ' '•••'. .. : •', •, . ; :" -,., ., - ,; But everyone left with the same opinion .,. . lie is not happy with the Johnson administration's Southeast Asian foreign policy and prior to his speech he said his remarks might'cost him his job in the U. N, v WHEN MRS. FIT! "Martha" Giocoechealof arrived in the Algona and LuVerne area to visit friends, it is doubtful if many of them recognized her oh first sight . . . you see, SHE LOST 276 POUNDS during the past 22 months. She is the former Martha Steussy, daughter of the late Fred Steussys of LuVerne, Bothered by a thyroid condition, she weighed 449 Ibs. at one time but was at 426 when she started her weight-reducing treatment which included regular exercises at a slenderizing studio at Reno and a special diet ... the 62-year-old woman celebrated her reduction by vacationing in Old Mexico and Mexico City and atter leaving this area, will visit friends in Minnesota and Wisconsin. She was in the Advance office Tuesday and reports she has been an Advance subscriber for forty years. Mrs. Giocoechea estimates she spent $10,000 over the years in trying to lose weight. Her special-made shoes cost her as much as $50 when she still had the additional 276 pounds and she weighed herself on the scales at a scale company or feed store because no average scale could handle her. Mrs. Goicoechea left this area in 1927, taught school in Nevada for a time and later married a rancher who died several years ago. She had not been back to Kossuth county since 1957.
