SOROPTIMIST CLUB HAS STEAK FRY The Soroptimist Club met at the Call State Park shelter house last Thursday evening for a 6:30 steak fry which was (followed by a white elephant sale. The purpose of the white elephant sale was to raise money for the Soroptimist Noel Fund, which will be used for the rehabilitation of Soroptimist clubs and members in war torn areas. Practically all European Soropti- mist clubs were forced to abandon their clubs or meet secretly during the war. The Algona club donated to the project $50, most of which was raised by the white elephant sale. There were 28 in attendance, the following being guests of club members: Mrs. J. F. Overmyer, Harriette Clayberg, Mrs. Carl Pearson, Mrs. Kenneth Lamp. Irma Greiner, Mrs. W. T. Giossi, Mrs. Roscoe, Rose Lampe, Beulah McMahon, Mrs. Paul Wille, Mrs. C. D. Schaap. Charlotte Black, honorary club member for November, Joyce Maharis, and Jeannette Sorensen. Mabel Sorensen and Alice Wilkins were the committee in charge of arrangements. WESLEY EXCEEDS V-BOND QUOTA Six of Kossuth county's forty communities have met or passed their quotas in the Victory Loan Drive. The two latest communities to report have both exceeded their quoins by over fifty per cent. Roy Kleinpeter reports that the pledges in the town of Wesley exceed $21,000 while the quota was $14,000. It would appear that Wesley irmy keep its lead as having the highest percentage over quota of any Kossuth county community in the hist six War Loan Drives. Springfield township, up in the north end, has pledges of $27,380 with a quota of $18.000. Chairman L. H. Junkermeier reports that these are not the final figures. Springfield had the highest percentage over quota of any township in the 7th War Loan Drive. Other communities which have previously made their quotas are the towns of Lone Rock, Swea City, and Whittemore, and Wesley township. Reports from workers indicate that the response has been quite favorable, although a great many workers have not worked their territories. All workers are uged to complete the drive as soon as possible. The special $200 E Bond, which is being featured in this drive, is proving quite popular. This bond, like all other E Bonds, costs 75% of maturity value, or $150. The bond features a portrait of the late President Roosevelt together with a quotation from his appeal to the American people for cooperation, immediately following Pearl Harbor. How To Meet A Husbana? Mrs. Leo Kollasch How did you meet your husband? Saturday afternoon an inquiring reporter stepped out on the street to get the "low down" on how some of the women shoppers up and down State street met their husbands. Was it on a blind date? Had you met just by chance? Or did you do some secret maneuvering to bring about the meeting? Well, at any rate, this is what war, discovered. Mrs. H. W. Becker of Algona was a corsetierre in a Sioux City Dept. Store, when a young man just out of the army, and his cous- Mrs. B. E. Sanders in entered her department. The two women knew each other—so Henry was introduced. A correspondence was carried on for 6 years and then they were married. They will be celebrating their 20th anniversary next March. (Before this writer could assimilate all the facts both Henry and his wife talked over the whole affair as if it had just happened yesterday. How's that for remembering after 20 years? And this writer wonders what Mr. Becker was doing in the corset department.) Mrs. B. E. Sanders of Sexton met her husband when she and Mrs. James Kelso several other prominent people In Sexton called on the new owner of the general store. Several parties were given for the newcomer, and—as Mrs. Sanders says—it just happened, (inside dope has it that Mr. Sanders owned the first automobile in Sexton way back there in 1907. Maybe this was an Inspiration for the future communion.) Mrs. Claude Sigsbee of near Burt couldn't remember just when she had met her husband, but it was back in those days when they were kids. If Mr. Sigsbee had been around at the inquiry, he probably could have rattled off a pretty good yarn. Mrs. Jim Kelly Mrs. James Kelso of Algona was walking down Algona's State street one lovely afternoon about 30 years ago when suddenly a young man, full of romance and beauty, asked if he could take her for a drive. And so the romance was on. Mrs. Leo Kollasch of near Algona lived as a neighbor to her husband all during her girlhood. She taught in rural schools while being courted and then was married in 1929. Mrs. Jim, Kelley of Lone Rock met her husband at a dance. It seems that Mr. Kelly considered himself quite a "rug cutter" and Mrs. II. W. Becker asked Some of the girls 'if this certain yoUng lady was a good dancer. The answer must have ' been in the affirmative for the two met and have now been married 6 years. . Mrs. Eaton of Ruthven was the last victim to be interrogated. When asked how she had met her husband, she replied, "You caught mean a bad humor, because right now I'm waiting for my husband This reporter, not being married, was accused of using this little stunt to get the latest information on how to catch a man. The problem now is, "How Do You Know He's the Right Man?" ^"^^ ^SOCIETY EDUCATION WEE PROGR'M OUTLINED Plans for full week's program in observance of American Educational Week were outlined yesterday by O.
