don smrth ALL right, you gardeners, etc. Here's some more dope from the Almanac in answer to a flood of mail (actually all we got was one postcard and three pieces of throw-away crap " that had nothing to do with gardening). Don't try any above-ground crops; root crops will take if planted May 23, 26, 27, 30 and 31; you've got one day left for seed beds, May 23; forget flowers, that season is over; you can kill plant pests May 28-29; and set eggs any time from now through May 30. Weather is supposed to be pleasant. - ? DID you hear about the sign that was put up in a Volkswagen factory in Germany ? It said "THINK BIG - AND YOU'RE FIRED." - ?GORDON Zeigler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Zeigler, rural Algona, is about to complete the eighth grade at AHS - and is 6-2 tall, according to figures released in Lynn Kueck's math class. Estimates of his weight (coming from classmates and the instructor) ranged from 95140 pounds- and the latter figure proved to be right. Gordie, who is (and always has been) slim, says that when he was three years old, he "had a 26-inch tricycle!" - ? ACCORDING to a recent story in the dailies, this is molting season for both birds and girls. As a result, the American Society Df Girl Watchers has come up with some guide lines for its 5,000 members in the United States. - ?THEY are, to wit: Don't ogle; when passing a girl going the same direction, don't turn around and stare; don't use binoculars, except at races; don't whistle, pinch, whisper or commit any other overt act; maintain eyeball control at all times 1 - ?A fellow by the name of Don Sauers, Eastchester, N. Y. is founder of the Society. He is 44, the father of five, and came up with the idea for a Society while eating lunch with some buddies 10 years ago in New York as hip-swinging misses swung by the window. President this year is Ray Baur, 40, Westport, Conn., father of six. - ?THE Society has its own song (you've heard it hundreds of times on radio and TV) and claims a survey shows that 100 percent of the girls like to be watched. One thing a member never ought to do is watch girls in a restaurant. "That's like watching animals in a zoo. They should be watched in their natural habitat- walking on the streets." - ? THERE is no substitute for a good imitation t - ?A. J. Dittmer of Burt stopped in Uie office the other day (May 11) and asked if anyone had paid his subscription. From the tone of his voice, we knew he didn't expect anyone had, so he paid it himself - and Mr. Dittmer and yours truly both agreed that there aren't as many nice people (those who will come In off the street and pay your subscription for you) as there used to be. JIM Piersall's Major League playing days are apparently ended — and I for one am sorry to see it happen. He was always fun to watch — and managed to overcome all sorts of problems to become just short of great on the diamond. He has been moved upstairs by the California Angels and will be in public relations work. Should fit in perfectly. If you've ever seen him interviewed on one of the late shows, you know what we mean. Jim posted a .272 lifetime batting average in the majors and could really go get 'em in the outfield. His last real honor came in 1964 when he was named Comeback Player of the Year after batting .314 for the Angels. The Majors could use another character like Jim. , May 23, 1967 Algona (la.)
