5—ALCONA (Iowa) ADVANCE MONDAY, MAY 16, 1966 AIN STEM JULIAN CHRISCHILLII IWNw ^^^^NMi mg vUNV MnM^hv Weather sports to a MRS, EDWARD OTIS bf Wesley, aldng with the relatives tii of other Kossiith county servicemen serving in Viet Nam, has a twobltfm — what to send youh& men in the way of foodstuffs? And shfe has 1 aske'd this newspaper tb help. It seems there are lots of things the fighting boys can hot of do ii6t get in Viet Na'ni and by pobliHg ideas and suggestions, she feels it will help herself ; (whose brother is in the battle area) and others who would like to sehd DIFFERENT items that WoUld be appreciated the most. For instance, one mom always encloses a stick of chewing gum in each letter . . . another encloses a package of pre- sweetened kool aid which needs only water to make a tasty drink . . . still another person sends a package of popcorn quite often ... it doesn't take up much space but is a welcome gift. To help others in sending the most abnreciated items of food, etc., why not drop Us a line and we'll pass on your suggestions to readers who have relatives or friends in Viet Nam! * * * IT HAS ALWAYS been my contention, after coaching Little League teams for six years, that the emotional strain for. yoUhgsters was highly over-emphasized ... and nbw comes an expert to report that the kids handle emotional stress better than infield grounders. Dr. pale Hanson of the University bf Maryland checked the heart beats of 10 players last summer during a Little League game and found they became excited only while batting . . . the kids had two small electrodes attached to their chests and, only, when the players came to bat did the rate jump. Within three minutes after batting, no matter whether they got a hit or not, the players' heartbeats returned to nor•• mal. This summer, Dr. Hanson hopes to monitor parents at ' Little League games and he thinks the parents get more excited than their boys. WE'LL AGREE! IT WAS just 21 years ago last month that World War 2 ended in Germany and now a survey reveals that 59 per cent of the West Germans feel the United States is their best friend . . . France is a poor second with eight oer cent voting for that country. Others mentioned were Austria, Great Britain, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands. LOOKING FOR MEDICARE — "An elderly man in need of medical attention went to a clinic. There he found a^eor- ridor with doors each marked for a different ailment. Since he thought he had appendicitis, he entered that door, thereupon finding two more doors, marked male and female. Being male, he entered the proper door and was confronted with two more doors, marked married and sin pie. Since he had a wife he entered the proper door. There he again freed two more doors marked taxpayer and non-taxpayer. Since he owned equity in his home, he entered the door marked taxpayer. Again he found two doors marked reoublican and democrat. Being republican, he entered that door and fell nine floors to the alley." GIRLS GOLF is becoming extremely oonular in a number of Iowa high schools, so much so that there is a state tournament .for girls , . . schools in this area with tp"ms in- olude Iowa Falls; EldbrarC-AL. Hampton, Newman of Mason City, Sheffield-Chapin, Carroll and many others. There is a good possibility that Alpona will have a pirl's golf team next year .;. j. a fine young golfer, Mrs, Joan Gerhart of Hawarden, has been contacted on the opening in the girl's. physical education department arid should she accept, she MAY also teach girl's golf next spring.

THOSE WESLEYANS who were reported to have seen an "airship," a dirigible-type of craft, back in 1897 must have been looking into the future . . . the New Standard Encyclopedia states, "The first United States Airship was tested in 1917." Let's just think that maybe they saw a "UFO" — Unidentified Foreign Object! Cold, damp WfeSthfr brought spring sports tb & near-standstill last weekend.
