Alqono Kojiuth County THURSDAY, JUNI M, Ittt - ALOONA, IOWA - If He's Ashamed, He 11 Not Marry You By Abigail Van Buren (Copyright 1966 by Chicago Tribune - N. Y. New* Synd., Inc.) DEAR ABBY: I am 20 and have been going with this guy for over a year. He is 22. We have to keep it to ourselves because of his parents. They are very narrow minded. They disapprove of me because 1 made a few mistakes in the past. Once when I was 14 and again when I was 16, but I gave both babies away. Anyway, this guy says he will marry me in time, but right now he can't be seen in public with me. I hate all this hiding and sneaking around. I know my reputation isn't so hot, but I am not a criminal. I don't go with anybody but this one guy, and 1 want to get married. What is your advice? TIRED OF HIDING DEAR TIRED: A guy who can't be seen in public with the girl he intends to marry is a long way from being man enough to marry her. If it's a wedding ring you want, don't count on him Change your address, and the farther from the scene of your "mistakes," the better. DEAR ABBY: You were much too lenient toward tha tombstone man who stated that each gravestone must bear thi dates of birth and death on it. In a word, he was a chiseler. You made a monumental boo boo, Abby, but don't get stoned or pottet over it. Your words of wisdom and wacky wit are a source o joy. You are the flower of the earth — you blooming idiot. YOUR L'VILLE PUN PAL DEAR PAL: Call not a blooming idiot one Who cultivates the lowly pun; Each thought begins with our Creator, I'll plant you now and dig you later. vance rf.ltn" - -—"'—•• DEAR ABBY: Not long ago I read an article in the paper about kooky weddings. It told about how people got married on horseback, water skis, and even while free-falling out of an airplane with a parachute. I would like to know how you feel about such weddings, Abby. Can these people be serious? Nominations for ASC committee open July 1 Farmers are reminded that petitions nominating a farmer to serve as an ASC community committeeman may be filed at any time after July 1. Richard I. Anderson, chair man, made the announcement to correct any possible misunderstanding about the time for filing nominating petitions.

Mission Fair of Lutherans brings crowds Fenton — The first of two week-end mission fairs attracted many to St. Paul's Lutheran school, Whittemore, Saturday evening. The mission fairs are under the auspices of the Lutheran Women's Missionary Leagues of the 12 Missouri Synod Lutheran congregations in the Algona Circuit. The second mission fair will be almost identical to the one at Whittemore and will be held in the educational unit of St. Paul's Lutheran church, Garner, June 25 and 26. Each congregation of the cir cult arranged a. display booth of pictures, maps, tracts, and curios which came directly from the foreign mission fields. Purpose of the fair is to give information about the work of the Christian church and to pro vide inspiration for participation in the church's mission pro gram of proclaiming the Gos pel of Jesus the Savior through out the world. During the fair each booth is staffed by persons who explain the work done by the missiouar- eis. By visiting the booths, visitors are able to take an imaginary world tour of Lutheran mission fields. The "tour" includes the following countries: Central America, Brazil, Argentina, Nigeria and Ghana, India, Hong iCong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Korea, Japan and New Guinea. Materials from these countries were gathered and displayed by the women of St. Luke's, Cylinder; Our Savior's, Swea City; Peace, West Bend; St. John's, Fenton; Zion, Lu Verne; Immanuel, Lone Rock, Trinity, Algona; St. Paul's, Garner; St. John's, Garner; Immanuel, Livermore; and St. Paul's, Whittemore. In addition, an American Bible Society display was prepared by St. John's, Burt; a display of world-wide Lutheran Hour broadcasting was prepared by the Zone Lutherans Laymen's League; and a youth mission work display by the Algona ' Zone Walther Leagues. ! The 14 mission display booths, erected in the class rooms of the Whittemore Lutheran school, were opened at 7 p.m. Saturday. Some 300 people toured the displays that evening to see such things as a model New Guinea bush home, a scale model of a Nigerian hospital corn- pound, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Philippine costumes, an Indian rice huller, hand-made linen articles and jewelry from Central and South Ameri- ea. At 8 p.m. Saturday an hour's program was given in the school's gymnasium-auditorium. A sound movie produced in India, "Launch Out into the Deep", was shown. The Rev. Ronald F. Halamka, missionary to the people of Taiwan and president of Concordia Seminary in the city of Chia Yi, showed colored slides and told of mission activities in his country. Refreshments were served by the Lutheran Women's Missionary League to mission fair visitors. At 10:30 p.m. Saturday the first day of the mission fail- was over. Sunday morning, Missionary Halamka spoke at a combined worship service of numerous congregations from the Algona Circuit. His topic, "Begin what you started—with the Spirit", was based on Galatians 3:1-5, emphasizing the need for continuing in the Spirit of the Lord so that a person may carry out the task of missions. Booths were opened through most of Sunday and were visited by large crowds. Rev. Halamka gave an informal talk in the afternoon followed by a discussion period. The Mission Fair will be held elsewhere this weekend. Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Flaig have been living at 730 N. Dur- anf since their marriage last month. She is the former Mary Lea Renger of Bancroft.
