SAN DIEGO, CALIF. - Richard Lukes of Algona, was recently named a member of the 1966 Territory Managers Advisory Board of Oliver Corporation, farm and contractors equipment subsidiary of White Motor Corporation. Lukes and his wife, Helen, attended the meeting of the Board in San Diego, Feb. 15-18. S. W. White, Jr., president of Oliver, at the left above, presented the local businessman with a handsome engraved plaque in recognition of his appointment - an honor accorded this year to only 65 Oliver territory managers in the entire country. Mr. and Mrs. Lukes are pictured with Mr. White. Mrs. Lukes is employed in the office of A. M. Quintard, county superintendent of schools. In presenting the award, White noticed Lukes' outstanding record of accomplishments throughout 1966 in managing his northwest Iowa territory of Oliver equipment dealers. He was especially effective in establishing new dealerships and in helping his present dealers increase their volume of business on a sound financial basis. Evelyn Feb. 22-Good old Washington's birthday. George who dealt in wood, so history tells us, first with a cherry tree and then with dentures. Do you believe either story ? I've always rather doubted the Noah and the whale story, too. 'Anyhow I am proud to be an ancestor of Capt. Ebenezar Cady who was with Washington and his army when the British surrendered at Yorktown. I wonder what Washington would think of his country now and the many involvements we .have been in over the years. It would be nice if he could look down from his golden cloud and offer us some suggestions. Hwe really can mingle with the ones who have passed on as we are led to believe, I want to meet George, Lincoln and F. D. R. - o - When I think of the 25 cent bean suppers of yore, compared with the present price, it seems incredible that such a wonderful supper of yore could have been served at such a price and money made. And I can remember when a quarter's worth of round steak was more than our family of three could eat at one meal unless we gorged ourselves (which we usually did) when it was served smothered in onions 1 - o - I suppose my cousin Julia Cady's three week vacation in Hawaii is over and the time would have been up yesterday. I am glad today is a holiday and she can unpack leisurely - and best of all not have to face that brisk breeze on her way to work at a doctor's office. If it is as breezy at Mason City this morning as it is here, she'd be chilled to the bone. So many people are vacationing in Hawaii I expect to see grass skirts replacing the minis. Aren't women crazy ? In my youth we wore our skirts to our shoe tops - then they went a little longer, back in 1914. Gradually they have been shortened till there isn't much left. It may even get to the ruffle at the waist before the trend is over. Kinda' hard on the mercantile business. When they can't go any higher, the trend will begin to lower, but I doubt very ouch the shoe top length will ever como back. I wish women would learn to distinguish between legs which can be shown to advantage and those which should be kept in "confinement". Jackie Kennedy is in the second category to my way of thinking. Too bad her feet and legs don't match her face. - o - Several years ago, a carpeted bathroom was the talk of the town - the novelty of it — and now it is a common thing, and kitchens are being carpeted! I can't go back to the era of straw under the carpeting to keep floors warmer and to protect them from rough wood, but I can go back to the era of laying several thick- nesses of newspapers under the carpet. Then when they were taken up in the spring, laid on the grass or hung over the clothes line and the very dickens beaten out of them, we lingered over the newspaper, reading events of a year ago. They were bundled up and burned and new papers put down. Then came the waffle like paper - easy to handle and lay in rows - then swept off outdoors and put down again. Now once a carpet is put down, it's DOWN, can be washed and given the vacuum treatment with no tacks to pull. - o - "It's an iU wind that blows nobody any good' 'tis said, and out of Dot Smith's sickness has come good - she gets into a new apartmsnt with no stairs, has new drapes and new kitchen curtains being made by her daughter- tn-law, Mary, and assistants, and when she goes to her new home it will seem almost bridal. Then the Mesings benefited by getting the Sullivan house Dot lived in so long and Rose is so happy to be "downstairs" after living in an uptown apartment so long. And she revels in the fine view- the nice surrounding houses, the patio - and Max can eliminate the long stairs which troubled him in his breathing. He has been a victim of asthma for some' time and exertion makes him uncomfortable. So Ted Lewis doesn't have to say "Is Everybody Happy ?" They are. - o - I made a slight error. It was Ruth HIBBERT of Eagle Grove, the nurse I met in Chicago, not Hibbing as I called her. Oh well, after all these years, it's a wonder I came that close. She is now Mrs. Charles Knoble. The family is widely separated. A son lives in Connecticut and a daughter in Los Angeles. - o Every youth group has its silliness, and mine was no exception. The other day I heard the old song "Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly - K-E-Double L-Y" and I thought of the group of us who were enroute home from a camping spree at Irvington. We were in a buggy and passed a farmer on foot and we asked him if he had seen Kelly. He replied courteously that he hadn't, w'.iich sent us into gales of laughter and we sang the song. I think he probably thought "what a bunch of nit-wits," and went on his way pondering. - o - I was astonished to learn the other day that polygamy is still practiced among the Mormons here. I thought that had been outlawed and in many cases voluntarily given up years ago. I have some acquaintances living at some distance from here who are Mormons and I'd like to have a talk with them on it. - o - Mrs. Fannie Lee told me a "Believe It or Not" story about a niece of her late husband, George, Mrs. Ethel Priest, Memphis, Tenn., who flew from there to Chicago to visit her brother Lyle Stewart. It took her longer to reach his home after she had arrived in Chicago than it did to fly from Memphis. There was 46 inches of snow in ten days and drifts were ten feet high. Chicago has for years been known as "The Windy City" and now it HAS set a record, not an enviable one. - o - I have noticed that of late the girl whom I had written about over the years, Mary Louise Miller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Miller, now spells her name Maree. I asked her mother why the change, which I think is cute. There are so many Mary Millers in this vicinity and at her college, she has changed to Maree to be distinguished from the many others. - o - The Pink Ladles Auxiliary of the Good Samaritan Homes has been disbanded for lack of numbers, but parties still continue. With the money left in the treasury, each resident was presented with a gift. Mine was stationery. - o - I was in such a tizzy Tuesday evening. HOW was I going to be able to see the Andy Griffith show and my adored Gene Barry at the sarriB time — Andy one half hour over CBS and Gene on NBC. Well, I looker! at Andy the first half hour, then turned to Gene. What a disappointment! It was one of those darned space ship - scientific things which I just HATE - so I switched back to Andy and left Gone to get out of the mess the best he could. WHY do they cast him in such roles? He is a romantic type. Bat Masterson isn't too bad, but it doesn't fit him as a type. - o - The Smothers Brothers still leave me cold, and Jack and George didn't help much. George's show went to pieces when Gracie Allen died. And Jack's program fell apart when he left Dennis Day out so much and "hummmmed" so much. With all his faults, I'd rather see his programs than put up with the Smothers. "Family Affair" pleases me but I hate to lose the new Frenchie when the old one, Sebastian Cabot, comes back. No program can come up to Lawrence Welk ! - o - I haven't met up with Cassius Clay nor have I run into an open door in the dark, but I do have a beauty of an eye - a broken blood vessel, the doctor said. It doesn't hurt, hasn't affected my vision, but it HAS marred my beauty I I don't know when it happened but when I saw it, I called a doctor in a hurry. He was very calm and unperturbed about it - so I calmed down, too, but will probably look like a defeated boxer for a week or so. Isn't it vexing what can happen - great and small ? - o - How about this ? "Mini skirt- Wearing a peril". - o - This was too good to hold over. When friends brought me a bean supper serving the other night and saw my eye, one remarked, "I'd rather fight than switch," which, of course, TV viewers know. Well, it's true I DID smoke a Tareyton, my first cigarette — but I'm not a smoker, I was merely experimenting.

The supper was delicious I U-Go-l-Go The U-Go-I-Go club held a 4-H clothing meeting Feb. 21. Five of the seven members that were taking clothing this year were present. A talk and demonstration was given by Joyce Sifert. Leader is Mrs. Lupkes. Looking back on National Guard service in 34 WW n campaigns including seven assault landings, the late Robert P. Patterson, as Secretary of War, remarked: "The soldiers of the Guard fought in every action in which the Army participated from Bataan to Okinawa. They proved once again the value of the trained citizen-soldier.' Only about 9% of the world's 36 million square miles of land is suitable for farming. RELAX...
