2-Algona, (la.) Upper De* Molnw Tuesday, April 25, 1967 ith MAX McGee, who has been catching passes for the Green Bay Packers for quite a few years probably is best known for his exploits during the Super Bowl game at LA in January. He was terrific that afternoon after replacing BoydDowler, who was injured early in the first period. Max was in Algona April 14, brought here by the Goodrich Tire Co. as part of a recognition for Jack Limbaugh, local dealer. MCGEE gave a short, humorous talk during a noon luncheon meeting - and some of his quips had no trouble at all making it into The Periscope, to wit: "THANK God for the Super Bowl or I'd be plowing today in Wisconsin." (Each Packer received $15,000 for that fray- and got $9,800 for the NFL finale for a total of $24,800 in the final two games of the season). "PAUL Hornung (McGee' s roommate for 10 years with the Packers, since sold to New Orleans) would have been here with me today - but he went to confession Saturday and isn't out yet. I got out this morning and barely made it." "I told Paul he probably wouldn't play much for New Orleans - the long." bars are open too "AFTER a particularly poor day, Paul, who used to do our placekicking, had missed six field goal attempts and a couple of points after touchdowns as the Vikings beat us by a point a couple of years ago, showed up at the next practice session with a gun. Jim Taylor told me Pd better do something about the gun, because he thought Hornung might attempt to shoot himself. I quieted Taylor, saying," Let him try it - he'd miss anyway!" HORNUNG and McGee were together on the bench early during the Super Bowl fray - and Hornung had already told some of his friends he planned to get married the following Wednesday. He nudged McGee and suggested he (McGee) get some of the other fellows together and plan a big whing-ding that Wednesday afternoon. McGee, shaken by the request, said, "But Paul, you're getting married that morning - and you want to go to a party in the afternoon - why?" To which Paul said, "Just go ahead and plan the party in case the marriage doesn't work out." MAX also said he thought Taylor would be with Green Bay again this season, despite rumors he'd be leaving - and stated Kansas City has a good club in the ALF, but lost the Super Bowl contest with too much 1-on-l pass defense in the secondary. NO man knows his true character until he has run out of gas, purchased something on the installment plan and raised an adolescent! WAS pleased on a recent visit to the high school here when two gals, Alvena Miller and Helen Comfort, members of the staff there, told me they thoroughly enjoy this weekly collection of stuff. Our chest swelled considerably after talking with them. Thanks, much, you two. WE think we've figured out a way to pay all the politicians and the too numerous bureaucrats in Washington D. C. what they're worth - without cutting their wages. Use Confederate money! PROBABLY the best one set serious drama in the history of the boob tube was presented twice within three days recently. It was shown on NBC April 14 and again April 16. The drama was based on actual courtroom testimony during the trials of defendants who allegedly committed atrocities in the Nazi-operated Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. The cast was great - and from an original Broadway production - and if description of many of the acts in the camp didn't nearly turn your stomach, you have very little conscience. HERE'S a hint to housewives: Make sure your kitchen range is level - if ifs not, the foods cooked in the oven won't burn as evenly as they should! NOTED with some interest the other day a story from St. Paul which told of testimony there dealing with the idea of cutting from .15 to .10 percent the blood alcohol level needed as evidence of drunken driving in that state. It seems mashed potatoes, because of starch and bulk, are the only substance known (so far) that cuts down the rate of alcohol's effect on a human. Testimony also showed that CAPPY'S A & W DRIVE-IN OPEN FRIDAY, APRIL tt 11 A.M. (32 & 33) American bonded whiskey gives the least hangover andlSO-proof Polish bonded spirits the worst. Alcohol content of the blood also starts decreasing a half-hour after a person stops drinking. All the experts on the committee said .15 percent blood alcohol is about at the falling- down stage. THERE was a sax player on the Tonight Show April 17 who really "sent" us. He was Boots Randolph, and he hails from Nashville, Tenn. His rendition of "Shadow Of Your Smile" was temendous and managed to send shivers up our spine. Boots is referred to as a Yakkety Yak Sax Man - and he's also great with that style, which we had never heard before. If you get a chance to hear him some time - do!

PROCLAMATION LAW DAY - U.S.A. In many areas of the United States today respect for constituted authority, law and order, and the principle of the supremacy of law, are being recklessly challenged. The rights and freedoms which Americans accept as their birthright, are made possible only by unswerving public acceptance of and obedience to the rule of law. In today's complex society there is a particular need for understanding on the part of every citizen that respect for law is vital to the preservation of individual liberties and a free and orderly society. The Congress of the United States and the President by official proclamation, have designated May 1 as Law Day USA It is a day set aside for all Americans to reflect on our heritage of individual liberty under law and to focus attention on the responsibilities of citizenship. The theme for the tenth annual observance this year carries a timely message for every Amen- can; No man is above the law, and no man is below it." NOW, THEREFORE I Wm. J. Finn, Mayor of Algona, Iowa, * r£ by P:° claim Mond °y' M °X 1* 1967, as Law Day USA in he City of Algona Iowa, and call upon all citizens organizations, churches, and schools to recognize this special day through appropriate programs. 7 9 Dated at the City of Algona, Iowa, this 19th day of April, 1967. Wm. J. Finn, Mayor of the City of Algona, Iowa
