8-Algona (la.) Upper Dei Molnes Thursday, Sept. 7, 1967 New Insurance Building <'-' . .!.._-''"I '. . ' ' \L First, it was down with the old - now it's up with the new for the Kossuth Mutual Insurance Association, which will move from its present quarters on North Dodge street to a new building on East State street after the latter is constructed. Construction of the new building (a drawing of the structure Is shown here) is expected to .begin sometime in September. It will be a one-story building and the Cowan Corp. of Algona is general contractor. Completion is expected next spring or summer. The side of the building shown In the drawing will face south and the main entrance will be on the east. Inside, patrons and visitors alike will find a board meeting room, vestibule, reception lounge, manager's office, claims office, work room, bookkeeping department, rest rooms, coffee bar, adjuster's desk and storage areas. The organization plans to sell its present office building. i y don smith THERE are many persons in this area who take great pride (and rightly so) in their ability to produce tremendous fruits and vegetables in backyard gardens. One that comes to mind is Glenn Jones who lives on South Jones street here. Now, Glenn has tomatoes this summer that are reportedly among the finest ever seen. He was very proud of one, which was huge, and he took it over to show it to a neighbor. A couple of days later, Glenn's visit to his garden produced quite a surprise — a large onion was growing on one of his tomato plants (tied there, of course)! Wonder how it got on that plant. So does Glenn. THE Fugitive, Richard KImbie, was finally exonerated of all blame in the death of his wife after the lengthiest run from the law in TV history. Personally, we figured the one-armed man didn't do It. Had a feeling the one-time war hero back in the home town was the culprit, but we were proven wrong. Ralph Undhorst doesn't need to look to me for help when It comes to solving a crime. Pm afraid Pd flunk the test. You know, one guess from a TV source as to the real criminal In The Fugitive was Kimble himself. The final scene in that case would have shown him taking off his shirt to go for a swlm- and he was supposed to have been standing there minus one arm I At least I didn't miss that far 1 AN auto seat belt is only uncomfortable if you're sitting ON SEVERAL times each year, it is necessary to report the death of a real good friend. We considered Mrs. Lawrence (Ha) Winkel, Algona, just that and we've never known a more kind person anywhere. She was always active in many affairs, church and otherwise, until ill health made it impossible for a rigorous schedule. She was always a favorite with us-and the writer would like at this time to offer sincere sympathy to the members of her family, Lawrence, her sons and daughters. She will be missed by many. ANOTHER death which shocked us during the same week was that of Bruce Smith, one of the greatest football players of all times and winner of the Heisman Award In 1941 after a wonderful season at the University of Minnesota. We got a chance to see Smith play a couple of times for the Gophers - and they don't pake them any better. He was a native of Faribaujt and his death occurred at his home in Alexandria, Minn, following a lengthy battle with cancer. He was only 47, THE salesman, after gaining entrance to the prospect's home, put on his personality act. "My, what a lovely home you have," he gushed. "And pray tell me, what is lo that beautiful vajse on the mantel f "My husband's ashes," said the young wife. "Oh, I'm sorry. How long has he been dead?" "He's not. Just too lazy to find an ash tray." - ?- SPEAKING of ashes - did most of you agree with the final outcome of the shooting of George Lincoln Rockwell? We're not for assassination, even of someone of his caliber, but the thwarted attempt to bury him in a National Cemetery met with approval practically everywhere. He never would have made it as Hitler anyway - no mustache. - ?- WE'D like to tip the Periscope hat to a local fellow who has really been getting plaudits recently from the Iowa Business and Industry magazine. Bert Harmes, owner and operator of Metronios, Inc., was feted by the magazine last week as the Man of the Month - just a few weeks after Business and Industry had saluted his firm with a big layout and story in another issue. Con- grats, Bert I - ?- SHUCKS I Lady Godiva wasn't nude after all when she took that well-known ride more than 900 years ago. Her ride on horseback . through the street? of Coventry, England (supposedly in protest against taxes or something) was apparently taken in beggar's garb. Now, the person who made this discovery also said that if she was clothed, the world also owes an apology to the original Peeping Tom - a tailor in Coventry who was supposedly the only citizen to'get a look at Lady Godiva. As far as we're concerned, ifs a little late to change the report on the ride- and certainly too late to apologize to Tom I including his most recent acts. His firing of Manager AlvinDark (after he put Dark in all kinds of predicaments) and release of Ken Harrelson, first baseman, who had been critical of him (Finley) was preceded a few years ago by his choice of a softball suit and this year the choice of white shoes for his players. He has always made a travesty of the favorite American sport and should have stayed out \ - 1- WHEN a man gets too old to set a bad example, he starts giving good advice \ Notes Of Servicemen EUROPE makes about 80 percent of the world's wine - and must drink a good percentage of It, too, from what we read.

Rasmussen, USN, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Merle Edgar Rasmussen of Rural Route 1, Wesley, was graduated from nine weeks of Navy basic training at the Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, m. His training was highlighted by participating In mid-America's "Salute to the Flag" ceremonies held at Soldier Field In Chicago. He was one of the more than 10,000 Navymen who formed a human "Living Flag" In honor of all men and women who are, or have been, in the U.S. Armed Forces.
