The same doctor that operated on Mickey Mantle's "baseball knee." Good company! V GARRIGAN'? high school band wanted desperately to /attend the Mason Ci.y Band Festival but it had a big problem — no director! Bear bandmaster John Sterba resigned at the end of the current school year so Father Cecil Friedmann called Algona high school bandmaster Russ Ouster and asked if he .would help out. Always happy to cement relations between the two schools, Guster readily agreed. The Garrigan band was accompanied by its own chaperones but after getting the Algona high school band off in the parade, the Ousters then backtracked to the Garrigan band, got •them spaced correctly, lined up and "off and marching." ••.,.• The bands did not sit together during the massed band concert at Roosevelt Field where the queen is crowned and thus Russ tried to get halfway between each band so he could be on the scene quickly in case either of the two school's candidate was named festival queen. In appreciation, the musicians from Garrigan presented Russ a gift certificate at a local clothing store! 13-YEAR-OLD SUSAN Burgeson of Swea City started out life without one of its most precious gifts— eyesight. But this handicap has not kept her from a full life, Her mother died when she was only 10 days old and she has lived with her •grandfather, Roy Burgeson, all of her ; life../.

She studies i every subject that other students have — arithmetic, science, history, art, reading, typing and spelling, the latter of which is her favorite. • v She is at home every weekend with her grandfather and does lots of cooking and baking (she. reads recipes by Braille). One of her greatest accomplishments is to read the entire Biblei in Braille. < ; ':, IF CALIFORNIA continues to grow at its present rate for the next 100 years, population in 2066 : will be 1M- billion persons or half the present population of the entire planet . . .the present net gain .is abqiitpl,5QO flejW- residents daily.
