8-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, April 18, 1967 Honored By JCs The Algona JayCees held their annual Award Night Banquet at the Country Club Wednesday evening and presented the top four awards to the men shown here. In the front row are Earl Lierley, left, Universal Mfg. Co., who was named Boss of the Year, and Jim Chalstrom, who received the Distinguished Service Award. In back are Jim Buscher, left, recipient of the Exhausted Rooster Award, and Dick Kuecker, the Outstanding Young Farmer Award winner.

Dr. James Harris served as MC at the event. Frank King, retiring president, talked briefly before Heinle Taylor, Des Moines, past state JayCee president, delivered the featured talk of the night. Taylor's talk included the use of several very humorous stories and a good discussion of the advantages offered those who belong to the organization. The new officers, including Les Foxhoven, Pres.; Bob Bomgaars, first vice pres.; Bob Post, second vice pres.; John Lande, treas.; Ed Pierson, sec.; and Jim McMahon, Mark Seeley, Frank King and Paul Bode, directors; were presented. (UDM Polaroid Flashfoto) ACTION ATA.H.S. CONGRATULATIONS TO those who had parts in the production of "Stardust". The whole medley of strange happenings in the play created genuine laughs in the audience. The cast (with what appeared to be several typecasts) included Carol Sloniker, Terry McKean, Dean Teeter, Bob Elbert, Ginn Klein, Chris Conn, Ruth Johnson, Rich Black, Mike Dailey, Edith Ruark, Doug Jones, Bev Knudsen, Debbie Johnson, Becky Tielebein, Lark Whittemore, Rose Pendergast, Becky Hemmingsen, and Colleen Frink. Director Elmer H. Sonksen, stage manager Jeff Gilmore, and script girl Debbie Huber headed the production staff. - o- THOSE ATTENDING the Junior-Senior Prom Banquet will be in stor<* for another supply of laughs. The seniors are "filming" their class prophecy on location south of Algona. The set is off limits to non-seniors, by the way. Rumor has it that there might be some pretty gross scenes. Can't you just picture MAX as a great ogre being slain by the "little lion" Munger! The movie could turn into another "What's New Pussycat?", but hardly an "Ecco". - o - CLASS OFFICERS for next year, and the representatives, were elected last Wednesday. For next year's freshmen, they are Jim Harris, pres., Lynn Erickson, vice-pres., Ann Taylor, sec., Janis Haag, treas., Bob Stillman, Rick Nielson, and Jon Sjogren, student council representatives. The sophomore class leaders will be Lynn Buchanan, pres., Gary Hagen, vice- pres., Kris Easter, sec., Jean Taylor, treas., Rob Claude, Diane Levy, and Kathy Taylor, representatives. Junior electives are Larry Taylor, pres., Pat Hopkins, vice-pres., Karla Sjogren, sec., Sue Dodds, treas., Greg Allen, Tim Black, and Dean Lowman, representatives. The senior class of '68 elected Rich Black, pres., Dean Teeter, vice- pres., Marne Parrott, sec., Steve Claude, treas., Phyl Moulton, Gregg Powell, and Jeff Allen, representatives. The Student Council elections are next on the agenda. - o - FBLA PACKED up and left town Friday morning. At 5 in the morning, tool They went to the state convention in Cedar Falls. Yea, Hintch and Bolder had 22 sweet young things escorting them . . . how about that? Eleven-to-one ratio. - o - THE TRACK team bombed Swea City Monday, 93-36. The team has been bolstered by a few late entries such as half-miler Larry Munger, hurdler Brocke Laws, and high jumper Les Braun. Brocke broke his own record in the hurdles during his first practice with the squad last week, but he ran into Tom Snyder in gym class . . . so he's coolin' it for a while with a badly-sprained ankle. - o - DURING THE track meet with Swea City, a special unit called the gym class whizzes "flew" to victory in the 440-relay. Craig Taylor, Dale Peterson, Steve Voyles, and Denny Richter beat the varsity team in this event. - o - JANE WALKER and Sharon Wagner are the newly-elected Cadette co-captains for '67-'68. The girls were chosen in the organization's meeting last Tuesday. - o - COACH CHRISTIE, along with football captains Tom Claude and Larry Munger, dined at Char lie's last Friday noon in order to meet Max McGee, the Green Bay Packer star. Guess Mr. McGee's got the NICE big hands! - o - WHILE THE other classes were busy electing their officers last week, the seniors filled out forms for Veisha (May 5th) and paid their cap and gown rental fees . . . only $4.40 to wear your graduation outfit I Also, Lark Whittemore showed the class a sample of the blue daisy so a decision could be reached on the choice of class flower. Voting for the flower and motto will be done this week but the deadline for casting your ballot is Wednesday, seniorsl - o - IT WAS decided that students attending Veisha at I.S.U. should reject any invitations to "pot parties" and instead attend the Stars Over Veisha program. So, the seniors will be witnessing the performance of "Camelot" instead of the previously-scheduled "Don Smith At-Home" party. Chalk up a win for Warden Allen. - o- SPEAKING OF chalk, what's the deal in econ class? The students are worried about their teacher . . . he's going crazy in search of a decent stubble of the white stuffl It seems Mr. Legore has a rather odd appetite ... he must live on chalk, because when the econ class moves into his room there's none to be found. A little cooperation please. - o - TREASURY REPORT: $695.01 in student council savings. What are they going to do with all that jing? - o - CAPITAL JARGON: Might be kinda sickening, but these are the new "in" terms: "dodgy"difficult; "prunewhlp" —party pooper; "sesh" — party; "tarked" — angry; "bags of beg" — please. The new slang word for apartment is "Crlbb" not pad. If you are "tough" you are neat, not muscular. If you are an "animal", you are not a brutal person, but a lovable person. The new trend is toward softer words. - o - "ALWAYS PUT off until tomorrow the things you should not do today." ISWEA-EAGLE Services for Rev. H. Bernard Bengstrom, 54, formerly of Swea City, were held Monday afternoon at Calvary Lutheran church of Golden Valley. Rev. Bengstrom died suddenly of an apparent heart attack Thursday in Minneapolis. He was pastor of Immanuel Lutheran church in Swea City until 1965, when he became a teacher at Lutheran Bible Institute in Minneapolis. Survivors include his wife and five children.
