DIAMOND JUBILEE YEAR: This is Our i DIAMOND I JUBILEE YEAR Q 75 years of continuous and successful business in Algona and Kossuth County. What a far cry from the "covered wagon" days of the 1850's and 1870's —these days of the luxurious automobiles and steam heated houses. And yet this is a time of strife and struggle—1945 is far from the peaceful days we all long for. So our 75th Anniversary will be tempered by the sobering thought that we are fighting a two-front war and that many of our boys will never return. But we must carry on. This business will maintain its high standard of QUALITY despite all handicaps. And we pledge ourselves anew tp those venerated principles of honesty and fair dealing upon which this store was founded three-quarters of a century ago. kill riscnuies PIAMOND JUBILEE YEAR: LuVerne Sailor Back On Job After Leave Howard McClellan, gunners mate second class, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. O. McClelhm of LuVerne, returned to the east coast on Jan. 3 for reassignment after spending a 30-day leave with his parents. Howard entered the navy in the fall of 1941, and prior to his leave here he had conveyed troops to Iceland and taken a part in almost every enemy engagement In the South Pacific. He was in the evacuation of Guadalcanal, occupation of New Guinea, the Admiralty Islands, Wake, and many others. He also was in on the first raid over Tokyo and he also bombed Kiska in "42. At the invasion of Leyte Island in the Philippines. Howard was on the same ship with General MacArthur. Mrs. M. Falkenhainer Is New Management Chairman of USO Mrs. M. H.

Broken Arm For Vic Steil Is 18th Vic Steil of the Algona Grain Co. broke his left arm last Friday when he slipped on the ice and fell. The break was in the upper arm and was unusual in that it was a lengthwise break instead of a straight break. Vic probably has a record on broken arms as he has broken the same one 18 times. found himself In the watef with out a life jacket. Somehow h thrashed his way to a floatln jacket and squirmed into It. Another 1 Negro, Willy Ruckef steward first class, had a le broken by the explosion. Yet h swam to a raft and never com plained of his pain, Peterson saic Not all of the survivors couL get aboard the rafts, boats a» nets. They took turns.' Eight o ten would lie in Peterson's raft a a time while fifteen others woul hang onto the side ropes or swim alongside. When they 'tired, thos aboard would dive in, and giv'i the swimmers 'and floaters a rest Peterson said the men's spirit were buoyed by his big coxswain Chester G. Burke, who sang ou that he'd never take another drin] as long as he lived. . Peterson named a dozen or moiji men whose behavior in disaste: was outstanding. There was A, A Masulis, gunner's mate seconc class, who, despite a back injui* that almost paralyzed hjm, paddled a raft with bare hands. Another seriously injured was Thomas Paul Haesche, pharmacist's mate second class. Gritting his teeth, Haesche lay in Peterson's raft and made hardly e sound. That helped morale. Peterson said that a "godsend* on his own raft was Lieutenanl (j.g.) William J. Steed. Steed was a former professional football player, and he checked constantly on men who thought they were strong 'swimmers and they would wander too far from the raft. When they got into trouble Steed dived after them and pulled them back, or sent other good swimmers to aid. There was Ensign E. B. Rodie of Ridgewood, N. J., who had been in charge of the Cooper's amidships repair party. "He's the Ias1 man I'd have picked for a fighter,' 1 Peterson said, "Yet he had more guts than many of them. Rodie's leg was broken, but he made il to a raft and sweated it out. When we got to a near-by island a-Filipino doctor set the bones. Rodie never said a word. He just held Lieutenant Pickle's hand and squeezed it tightly." About midday on Dec. 3 the rafts and boats neared Ponson Island, one of the Camotes group west of Leyte. The navy's Catalina flying boats braved enemy fire to pick up the Cooper's survivors from the island next day. One "cat" took fifty- six aboard in addition to her crew of seven. Commander Peterson was aboard and had what he laughingly called a luxurious perch—a jump seat in one of the side gun blisters. The "cat," 3,000 pounds overloaded, taxied about three miles before it was airborne. The Cooper's men have rested now and are off to other duties.

Adopts Family A young deer about the size of a small calf has been mingling with a herd of cattle on the M. A. Wirsig farm near Donnellson. When first noticed, the deer did not seem on friendly terms with the cattle, but now Vernon Wir- sig, son of the farmer, says the cattle seem to have become fond of the newcomer to the herd.

Distinguished Visitor A friendly and extremely sociable white pelican was found recently in a ditch in Grove township, Adair county, by Lee Layton, farmer. The bird is assumed to have been grounded in a storm while on its way south. It consented to pose for a picture with Mr. Lydon for the Adair County Free Press. Bull-headed The oft-quoted bull in the china shop had nothing on the South Amana bull that recently broke away from his handlers while changing places of abode. He ran up onto the basement door of the Henry Baumgartner residence and crashed through into the basement. It took eight men with considerable tackle to extri- 'cats thd animal from hla strange sUrFSuhdlBfs. ^ Btifttiter vs.'Brakes Bumping of one automobile )n< to a parked ear sometimes starts a train of events resulting in damage especially if the parked car is pointed down an incline of a street such as Stevens street in Iowa Falls.

AH Over Again A speech "Making the World Safe For Democracy" written 28 years ago at the close Of World War I by Dr. Oscar Olson of Lu;her college faculty was read again by him before the Decorah Chamber of Commerce ; recently.
