BY STEVE WALLER This is the second installment of feature articles concerned with the recently-graduated area youth and their present employment. The series is designed to familiarize you with several hard-working young people from a generation that is often underestimated. How about a "dilly"? Or a "buster bar"? Or a "maltie"? Maybe you would prefer just a simple vanilla cone. . . .a banana split you say? Well, it's tingling your taste buds in a minute when pretty Connie Darbyshire prepares your order. Connie is a 1967 graduate of Algona High School and is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Darbyshire. She is one of four girls working for Mr. and Mrs. Dean Jergenson at the Dairy Queen in Algona. She has been working there since the Jergen- sons took over the management in April of this year. She applied for the job a few days after it opened. Her schedule varies during the week, but she usually works from 12;30 to 5:30 in the afternoons or 5 to 11 at night. Working with her at the Dairy Queen are Barb Jergenson, Linda Allen, Phyllis Moulton, Mrs. Meyer and Mrs. Doug Jergenson. They usually have three people on duty during the day with an additional girl assisting on Fridays and Saturdays. "It took about two weeks to really know the basics," Connie says. "And there is always somebody who, when he receives his order, will bark 'Ididn'twant THIS*." So Connie had to get used to the trials and tribulations of being a DQ girl. Connie is sometimes surprised by the person who orders a "plain old sundae" and then delivers the specifications for his "super- duper deluxe treat". Another pet peeve which frustrates her is the "rattler". He's the guy who double-talks his endless order without giving Connie a chance to decipher the meaning on paper. The biggest seller seems to be the vanilla cone. "One day we must have refilled the vanilla machine 20 times," she adds. Slushes are also a big item on hot, sultry days. They also sell a lot of dillies, pre-frozen chocolate-covered ice cream on a stick. In fact, Connie is affectionately known as "the dilly- dipper". She spends part of her time preparing these tasty treats as well as making "malties"and sandwiches. At the end of the day she counts the money and cleans up. Connie enjoys swimming, skiing, sun-bathing and reading. She is also occupied by an occasional date or a session with the television. The first woek of September, Connie will leave for college. She plans to major in home economics at Iowa State University. If you've got a thirst to quench or hunger pains to kill, stop in and let Connie Darbyshire fix you up. She might even attempt a banana split 1 (UDM Polaroid Photo) Riverdale Rustlers Riverdale Rustlers I met June 17 at St. Joseph's school hall with Lenora Hilbert as hostess.
