10-Algona lo.) Upper D«* Moines Thursday, June 22, 1967 WHAT ' ARE THEY DOING? BY STEVE WALLER This begins a series of feature articles pertaining to the recently graduated young people now busily engaged in employment, summer or permanent. The articles are designed to give the reader a glimpse of what today's young generation is doing to prepare for the future. Several 1967 high school graduates will be introduced, interviewed and their jobs explained. Some of the employees are working for relatives while the majority of them are "on their own" as they increase their learning outside of school. Our first young employee is Greg Snere, son of Mr. and Mrs. John B. Snere, who is employed as a clerk at Hub Clothiers here. Greg is a 1967 graduate of Algona High School and began working at the Hub In 1964. He started on a part-time basis after school, Friday nights and all day Saturdays. During the summer, Greg has full time duty. His day begins at 8:30 with the opening of the store and concludes at 5 p. m. unless some late customers are still shopping. Greg's fellow workers are the boss, Bob Williams, and clerk Earl Ludwig. This crew is increased to 4 or 5 during the big sales events of the year sucli as Christmas, etc. "At first," Greg says, "it was a trying task to sell a customer an article without knowing just WHERE the item WAS." But the more Greg was around, the more he learned the lay of the land, and the job grew easier and smoother. He has learned to recognize a person's taste in clothing by the appearance of the customer as he enters the store. You'll find that Greg can also roughly estimate your clothing sizes. It now comes naturally for Greg as customers enter the store. He knows right where everything is, and being fairly familiar with current style trends, he can evaluate what "goes" and what doesn't "go." Greg's duties are not only selling, but also keeping the store clean. He dusts, sweeps and washes as well as vending merchandise. Greg likes his job. One advantage is being Indoors, in air- conditioned comfort. He is assured of work no matter how the weather outside may be. He. also meets many interesting people during the course of a day. His work day is not terribly strenuous physically, but Greg is on his feet a great deal of the time. Favorite recreations include reading, swimming, playing cards and watching the "tube" (television). With the end of the summer, Greg will leave for Cedar Falls where he'll enroll in the college of business administration at the University of Northern Iowa. Greg is rather interested in the clothing business as a possible career. However, there are a lot of question marks In his future as there are in most industrious young people. Concerning current clothing trends, Greg is not satisfied with the "Mod" look and its paisley designs and bell-bottom trousers. He favors the collegiate look of stripes, checks and solid colors. He says, "Clothing cycles repeat themselves Just like history itself." As an example, he points out that we are now reverting back to the 1920 look with the arrival of double- breasted suits and wide ties. Greg is able to assist Mr. Williams in ordering certain questionable styles. He offers a young person's knowledge of what kids will like and dislike. Greg helps most of the younger customers as well as many of the adult patronizers at the Hub. So, here Is one lad who is "on his own" earning his own money and learning from first-hand experience outside the classroom. "Good luck" to Greg. He is just one of the many adolescents who are "on the job" as adults. MAKE IT SAFE NORTHERN Tom Hansen of Iowa Falls recently caught a nine and one- half pound Northern below the dam in Iowa Falls.

Conservation District In State Contest The Kossuth county Soil Conservation District has entered the Iowa Achievement Contest.

A new feature of this contest will be recognizing outstanding conservation teachers. Any teacher in the District is eligible to take part and the type and kind of conservation teaching will be recognized.

It pays to shop locally This scono soon will HP commofi throughout Iowa as the hay and oats harvest season gets underway. The Iowa Loss Prevention Institute appealed to farmers to make it a safe harvest season hy paying particular attention to safety precautions. With longer hours of sunlight than during other harvest seasons, fatigue may be an important factor in accidents now. So, as part of an eight-point safety recommendation, the Institute stressed the importance of taking a morning and afternoon coffee or snack break. Fenton Farmer First To Plant New Legume Roger Frink, who farms south of Fenton, has made the first known seeding of crown vetch in the Kossuth county Soil Conservation District this spring. This legume, a species of green fodder, is being established to test the effectiveness of it for grade stabilization of the back slopes of the new type of terraces recently constructed on his farm. This legume was furnished to him for the trial by the SCS. If this proves successful on this site, it will be studied on further sites and has a wide range of potentials for bank stabilization. •^ ^ ^ ^ •^T-w-^'^-w-w^w'w^'^ -^ v ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ STAY INFORMED HEAR LOCAL NEWS EVENTS AT 6:30 - 7:00 - 8:00 12:15 - SIGN-OF NEWS AT 5:30 PLUS 5 MINUTES OF NEWS AT 10 -11 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 WEEK DAYS ON No Delivery KLGA ffiPtdflE'S CHOICE *** 1600 KG This is to advise business patrons that beginning Monday, The Friendly Store FREEZIN' SEASON TRUCKLOAD SALE! 15 CUBIC FOOT CORONADO FREEZERS YOUR CHOICE Upright or Chest Models $ 179 NO MONEY DOWN $2,25 Ptr Wok, Payable Monthly 95 CORONADO „ 4-Way Warranty* • Fivt-ytar free parti and labor warranty on sealed re* frigeration lyttem • One-year warranty on all other part* « Five-year frozen food protection • Lifetime guarantee on liner* * /or 3&&SS&S&&Z 515 Lb.
