v; v , %e AUna llpfle* 0«g MolneS, A] ONCE ALGONA GIRL SENDS GREETINGS FROM ARIZONA In a letter addressed to J. W. Haggard of the Algona Upper Des Moines, Gladys Tribon Paddock, a former news writer on the Upper Des Moines, sends her many Algona friends holiday greetings from Phoenix, Arizona, where she and her husband have resided for a number of years and are now conducting a suburban store. The W. J. Bournes, who have spent their winters there, are now considered permanent residents, and Mr. Bourne was one of three leaders in the recent bond drive who were given a banquet end the thanks of the community. Mrs. Paddock, who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Tribon of Algona, sends the following greeting and newsy letter for the benefit of her Algona friends: Phoenix, Arizona, January 11, 1945. Dear friends: Illness and house guests and the holiday rest made it impossible to get the Christmas letter clone as usual. I do enjoy doing them arid will get theift all done soon. I'm enclosing the clipping regarding the Bournes' participation in the last bond drive They have helped oh all ten civic things in Sunny Slope. They have purchased the Moore house in which they have 'been residing and are working it over into ar attractive home. (Mr. Bourne still takes charge of all of our ration stamps. We simply couldn't manage without him. He has only made one error in the years of rationing. He shorted the ration bank ten points on one envelope. Everyone is buried under these regulations designed by the "would be brain trust." Rationing, we feel, is necessary because the American public has really gone all out on this hysterical buying spree. Here cigarettes, fats, and pepper are the current bug bear. The "tramps" which have grown out of this era are our greatest nuisance. Esther Meinzer Saston (formerly of Burt) and her husband are head over heels in war rehabilitation work. Esther is also in charge of recruiting of nurses for this area. They are doing a splendid work in the most difficult jobs. The help situation here is just unmentionable. We've hired everyone that can "read and write. FARMERS We have just received a car load of Woven Wire Fencing and Barb Wire. Now, before the spring rush begins, is the time to buy your necessary requirements in fencing as well as steel posts and gates. Botsford Lumber Co.

New Deal Appeals to Housewives Every woman takes pride in her home, even if she won't agree that her place is in it. She likes to keep it fresh and clean, and she'd like to redecorate the rooms much more often if only it didn't cost so much. That's why women everywhere—and men who pay the bills—are so enthusiastic about an entirely new kind of flat oil paint called Uni/Tcx. It's a NEW DEAL for home-makers, because it makes the decorating budget go almost twice as far. What's the secret? A new development in paint called "Controlled Penetration". It means you don't have to wash, seal or primp walls; paint one coat of Uni-Tcx right over plaster, calcimine or wallpaper, and the job is done. It's easy to apply, and dries to a handsome finish that can be washed over and over again. Remember the name, Elliott's Vni-Tex; it's a genuine oil paint, the only one of its kind—not water-thinned—and it is washable.
