don smi"th 2-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moine* Tuetday, Feb. 28, 1967 unbeaten and we got to know him when we used to spend a lot of time playing golf. Bob will be missed at Ames. I thought I was in the wrong section of the United States Feb. 16 (it was 13 below zero early in the morning) when an advertising call was made to the Gambles store here. Found Manager Norm Christian talking with Jim Dougherty, manager of the theater — and that wasn't at all out of ordinary — but when talk of a one-piece picnic table came up between them, I wondered a little. Didn't seem like the right time to be talking picnics. HOW about yie combat bra the GIs in Vietnam presented to Jayne Mansfield recently while she was visiting there? The latest in lingerie for Jayne consisted of a pair of steel combat helmets, painted pink and fastened together with webbed belts with khaki straps and emblazoned with the unit insignia in red. Probably used the largest helmets available I READ this somewhere recently — Mathematicians say that in all probability in another 100200 years, nearly everyone in the United States will bear some common name like Smith, Jones, Johnson or Brown. Thousands of uncommon names are lost each year because of marriage. For instance, when 50 couples marry, the feminine half lose their names - and the progression toward fewer names is rapid. They say the only way to make sure your name, if it isn't already one of the common ones, goes on through the years is to have a son. And of course, that son and for generations thereafter must also have at least one son. Daughters increase the trend to fewer names. THE first census in the United States was taken March 1, 1790; Nebraska was admitted to the Union on the same date in 1867 and Ohio in 1803; Florida joined the Union March 3, 1845; Vermont on March 4, 1791 ; and the WHEN Darlene King, wife of Bob King, former Algona High coach now head basketball mentor at New Mexico U. where his Lobos are always rugged, died Valentines Day at their home at Albuquerque, many memories of the Kings slipped through our mind. Darlene was 42 and had been in ill health for some time. Following our marriage, my wife, Trudy, and myself spent quite a few evenings with the Kings in their home here — and when they moved to Rockford, HI. — we purchased the home from them. They later lived at Iowa City before going to New Mexico a few years ago. Darlene used to refer to us as Punch and Trudy — and always flashed a big smile when she said it. She was a peach 1 NOTED the other day that five years of research have resulted in some headway in the fight against cancer — at least the skin type, which can now be treated with drugs which do not even leave disfiguring scars in most cases. Dr. Edmund Klein, dermatologist at Buffalo, N. Y., says the drugs can cure 95-98 percent of two kinds of superficial skin cancers - and his work has also resulted in valuable information regarding other types of cancer. A total of 22 institutions are studying and using the same drug attack on skin cancers. Maybe Dr. Klein's research has opened the door further in the battle against the dread disease. THE tennis match was just over and a latecomer, addressing the general assembly, asked, "Whose game?" A sweet young thing sitting nearby said shyly, "I am."- PROBLEMS are numerous in newspapering, as in all other types of business. It's always a chore when making up a newspaper to fit ads and stones into pages so there is a touch of good appearance. We have to admit, however, that one of the best placed ads we've ever seen appeared in our issue Feb. 23. We gave a pat on the back to the make up man who put Home Federal's "It Pays To Save" ad in the center of two pages consisting mostly of board proceedings ( a list of vouchers paid by the board of supervisors) in which thousands of dollars were paid out. A fine coach died at Ames recently. He was Bob Lamson, 61, who at the time of his untimely death was assistant basketball coach at Iowa State. He was best known in this area when he coached football and basketball at Webster City High and during his 20 years there, took four of his clubs to the State Basketball Tournament. Two of his football teams were U. S. Constitution went into effect March 4, 1789. DR. J. Robert Oppenheimer, 62, known as the father of the A-bomb, died of throat cancel*' recently. His death, to our way of thinking, removed one of the most brilliant men the world has ever known from our presence. And it came before the full shroud of disgrace had been removed, a cloud placed over him in 1954 when he was denied access to secret documents by the Atomic Energy Commission because he had allegedly associated with communists, before be led development of the bomb that was to bring the end of World War n in the Pacific. He never quite recovered from the slap he received from his nation — a stunning blow. Even when he got a $50,000 award in 1963 for his outstanding work, he was not cleared for security reasons. The nation kicked him when he was down — and we always thought the actions through the years shortened his great life. . He, like other scientists who worked on the bomb, always felt shame for the snuffing out of 100,000 lives and injury to 100,000 more, but had great pride in their ability to produce atomic power. TALK of reviving the death penalty in Iowa has begun. A bill was filed in the legislature recently which would establish capital punishment in the state — but only if a peace officer is slain. That won't give much protection to Mr. Average Citizen, will it? SISTER: "How's that waterproof, shock-proof, unbreakable, anti- magnetic watch I gave you for Christmas ?' Brother : "Oh, I lost it." Pre-Schooler Sessions Here is a program "just for you." - "Understanding the Pre-Schooler."
