Maureen Thilges Weds Charles Baker June 17 fuesday, July 11, 1967 Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines-3 don smith BOB Dreyer, well-known operator of the Smoke Shop here, jumped all over me (well, not really - although he could, literally) a couple of months ago when we had an item in this column about his favorite Chicago Cubs. Our reference to the Cubs went like this, "The Chicago Cubs scored 36 runs in one game in 1897 (and thafs about 15 games worth for the club in recent years)." AS anyone who follows Major League baseball knows, the Cubs (who were my favorites after the Cardinals traded Dizzy Dean, who was my idol, to the Windy City club) moved into a first place tie in the National League pennant race a couple of days before July Fourth, then dropped three straight to the Braves to _fall a little off the pace. Any"way, Bob and yours truly hope they can stay in the thick of things and maybe win the crown. It's going to take some doing, but with Leo Durocher at the helm, anything is possible ! MRS. Hazel Lusby, Algona, one of the members of the class of 1907 of Algona High School (there were seven present) that held a reunion here recently marking the 60th anniversary of their graduation, told us something of interest the other day when she stopped in to get extra copies of the UDM which carried a nice picture and story on the observance. There were 11 persons at the banquet table at the Johnson House June 30 - and none of the 11 HAS EVER SMOKED 1 When the get-together was held, 14 of the original 19 members were alive. The following day, one member, Edna Cole Nelson, died at Ames. Getting back to the non-smoking angle — it looks like the doctors are right I SIGN in a church - come in and get your faith lifted. PERHAPS you noted the story in the dailies the other day telling of the disposition of the ruins of war to be harvested following the recent blow-up in the Middle East. It seems thousands of pieces of shattered artillery, armor and vehicles, plus vast supplies of ammunition, sent to Egypt from Russia, represent a rare prize of copper, brass, bronze, aluminum and molybdenum - and the way we understand it, when Israel's armed forces get done with their salvage job, the remainder will be sold to the highest bidders. Could this be called the fortunes of war? IF you think the assassination of Pres, John F, Kennedy is going to be dropped just because three of the major news organizations agree that the Warren Report, which admittedly had shortcomings, was basically sound, you'd better think again 1 With a gent like New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison Maureen Thilges, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oswald H. Thilges, Algona, and Charles F. Baker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Darwin Baker, were married June 17 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Cecelia's Catholic Church, Algona. Father James Bruch performed the double ring ceremony. Mrs. Dennis Miller was the matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Connie Thilges, Lori Becker, Mrs. Kenneth Krapp and Kim Baker. Dennis Miller served as best man, while Garry Thilges, Darwin Baker, Phillip Baker and Brian Thilges were groomsmen. David Green and Robert Slobe ushered. Acolytes were Robert and Thomas Thilges. Soloist Ruth McEnroe was accompanied by Ruth Cassel, organist. A reception was held at the KC Hall after the wedding, witli Jean Mescher at the guest book, Doreen Thilges served punch while Mrs. Walter Mescher and MrsT Otto Schmidt cut the cake. Waitresses included Doris Taphorn, Judy Taphorn, Mrs. Richard Harmon, Jeannette Cink, and Pat Cink. Mary Jane Taphorn, Mrs. Duane Nelson and Linda Green opened gifts. After a trip to Canada and Niagara Falls, they are at home at Algona. She is employed in the office of L. W. Nitchals, Algona attorney, and he is employed at Thermogas Company of Algona. , around, the story might remain hot for some time. We watched most of the CBS-TVpresentation dealing with the assassination and thought it was perhaps the best investigation of the matter yet produced. While it questioned some of the answers provided by the Warren group, it wound up with basically the same result that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone when he killed President Kennedy. SIGN in a tavern - if you are enjoying our color TV, you've had enough. Ifs a black and white set. SEE where new seats installed in London subways are raising the dickens with miniskirted gals over there. Fiberglass seats were put in the cars and from what we gathered, they are pretty cold - especially early in the morning when the lasses are going to work. Not only that, some other passengers consider the seats too hard for comfort. The Railway Review said, "Lonr don Transport may unwittingly have dealt a blow at the miniskirt." n 1 might soon be possible for everyone to deliver their own mail cheaper than through the Post Office Dept. The House Post Office Committee in Washington is now talking about 7- cent first class mail (that's regular letters) - to wipe out a huge deficit and "modernize postal operations." Nuts, if they'd peel off most of the hangers-on near the top of the heap and cut crews to the number actually needed, there wouldn't be any deficit. There'll be a lot of surprises around the country if they ever sub-let the postal service to a private concern. The heads will really roll. And they could do a lot of cutting in all other departments of government, too. Did you know the military forces have a total of 20,000 lobbyists working on Senators and Congressmen in Washington so military spending can be kept on a high level? Think that cost over a while I VICE President Hubert Horatio Humphrey got in on a little dinner over in Korea that proves why the vice president takes such trips - and not the Chief Executive. Humphrey was in Korea for the inauguration of the president there, and had the chance to watch a Special Forces demonstration on how to survive without C-rations. The instructors tore the heads off 3- foot long poisonous snakes, skinned and stripped them and ate the raw meat. It was reported Hubert got only slightly pale watching the demo. I'd think so 1 THE couple parked to say goodnight. The girl refused to kiss the boy until he drove to another spot a mile or so away. Puzzled, the lad asked, "What was all that about ?" Shyly, she replied, "It's just that I don't believe in love at first site." Twenty-Two New Vehicles Sold Last Week A total of twenty-two new vehicles were registered in Kos- sutli county last week. Tops in new car and truck sales were the Fords (8) with four trucks also included in the list of new machines.
