10-Algona la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, Aug. 10, 1967 "Ml lH Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi HI Hi HMI WHAT ARE THEY DOING? Hi HT Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi IH Hi Hi Hi Hi Hi Ml HHll BY STEVE WALLER Danny Owens (Jigs a lot of dirt, pounds a lot of nails (and thumbs), and pours a lot of cement. He is a construction worker for Robinson's of Algona. Danny has been putting up houses and other buildings since he started working the first week after school was out. He graduated from Garrigan Higli School last spring. • His day begins at seven o'clock and ends at 5:30 Monday through Friday. For several days during the early working months, Danny underwent what you might call "basic training" in order to adapt him to the construction work. After all, lie had to be orientated and edu- •cated on a number of diversified .tasks which he later would be 'called upon to fulfill. • Danny concedes that he was .surprised at the many facets 'surrounding the creation of an .edifice. But he adds "Pm really "learning a lot" now. He plays a part in all of the various steps of construction. From digging footings around where the house is to be erected to cementing the sidewalk in front of the house after its completion. Danny contributes a strong back and a mechanical mind. His easiest chore is driving one of the huge tractors used to plow out the construction site. And driving a multi-ton machine isn't THAT simple for ANYONE 1 It took time, but Danny can handle it now. As for excitement, there are times .... for example, we all know how "exciting" it is to slam a hammer on our thumbs. But the cake was taken by a little event that could have been a disastrous mishap not long ago. Yes, it was a close call the time the hoist broke , right Dan? What does our construction worker do after hours? Danny gets a bang out of cruising on his Honda, golfing, swimming and skiing during the summer months. Of course, Danny's co-workers are most helpful gents. They are guys like Bob Knudsen, Cliff Haase, Bill Robinson and Mick and Dwight Carman. Although Danny undoubtedly has a lot of potential in construction work, he holds a keen interest in physics right now. He hopes to major in physics at the University of Northern Iowa. Living in a new home? If you can find the initials "D.O." anywhere within the house take them as the trademark of Danny Owens' quality construction. St. Joe KC's Plan Annual Mulligan Stew ST.
