8-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuwday, Sept. 19, 1967 Miss Henderson Of Algona To Wed, January don smith GOT kind of a kick out of two consecutive front pages in the big daily, Sept. 11-12. The first had a picture of Lynda Bird and her Marine Capt., with outlines and a lengthy story on the engagement announcement. The way the three-column picture of Lynda and Charles lined up under another headline over a separate story, this appeared over the photo -"Garbage Build- up". The next day proved the unattached headline really did fit, because for the second straight issue, the engagement provided the banner headline. We've got nothing against the newlyweds-to-be, but think the big news media go too far out on some things. _ 9 - MRS. Tom Aaron of Algona walked into our office last Tuesday with two of her sons and reported she had been very mucli interested in our earlier remarks about a place where young go- kart (the non-motorized variety) drivers could run their vehicles. She had been checking around and may have a good hill for the boys. She (or this writer) would like to hear from any parents of such go-kart enthusiasts who would be willing to help with such a project. We'd also like to help round up old wagon wheels (the coaster type) which could be put to good use by the inventors and developers of the karts. PATROLMAN Tom Cogdall was in a few days before Mrs. Aaron, also indicating an interest in the project. He and yours truly are going to check out the possibility of holding a Soap Box Derby event here in the future. How about one of the service clubs grabbing it for a project. The JayCees did it here in the forties — and it was a smash hit. Know where we ran the races? Right north of Algona on highway 18. FIRST guy: "We've got to take that young secretary in hand and teach her right from wrong." Second guy: ' 'Good, you teach her what's right." OUR mail this week brought information from Casper Kayser, Waseca, Minn., who until the spring of 1920 lived at St. Joe and a brother of Peter and John Kayser. His letter was interesting as he made statements about the old Algona Brownies and the Minnesota Twins. Casper says the Brownies, who were feared by most teams all over the midwest right after the turn of the century, played just as good a brand of baseball as the current Twins. From what we've heard from others here who remember seeing the Brownies play, lie could be right. He requested we dig out information on the Brownies from our old files and send it to him. The request was impossible because our old files are 1 now in the Kossuth Historical Society building. Thanks for the letter, Mr. Kayser. WHILE on the subject, we'd like to congratulate the Historical Society on its Dedication and Opening, held Sept. 17 in the new quarters (the old Legion Hall). And a special tip of the Periscope hat to Chet Schoby, who certainly deserves it for all of the time and effort he has put into the project. There are many others who deserve a lot of credit, too. Congrats. A father we know says he's sick and tired of arguing with his son over borrowing the car. "Next time I want it," he says, 'Tm just going to take it." UNITED Fund- How can I determine my lair share of contribution? Let your conscience be your guide - estimate the total of your past annual contributions, and add a little for the ones you missed and for the advantage of a single drive (or one-fifth of a week's take home pay— one hour's pay per month for 12 months). Be sure you contribute when the drive starts Oct. 2, The goal is $16,000 - so everyone wiil have to contribute. Some time you may call on it for help I PAMELA HENDERSON Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Henderson announce the engagement of their daughter, Pamela Sue, to Donald James Madsen, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Madsen, Sr., Burt. Miss Henderson is a graduate of North High School, Des Moines, and attended the University of Iowa at Iowa City. She is presently employed at the Weiden- lioff Corp. as a timekeeper. Mr. Madsen is a graduate of Algona High School and is presently engaged in farming. A Jan. 14 wedding is planned. (Glenn's Studio Photo) INCREASES in salaries for instructors in school systems in this area seem to be nearly in line with the Iowa average, according to figures we saw the other day. The Iowa average is a 13 percent increase with 272 school districts reporting. Classroom teachers got an average hike of $812 for the current year, compared to 1966-67, while principals are getting $1,356 more this year and superintendents $1,795 more. Average salaries in the three categories are $7,382, $10,873 and $13,974. "SPECTACULAR New TV Shows" is what the three major networks had been advertising for many weeks for the Sept. 1017 period. For the most part, it appears, at least at first glance, that they have missed the mark again. Hardly any, if any, of the new entries will put a crimp in the standings of some of the tried and tested older ones. We didn't watch the 4-hour "Africa" on ABC, but heard it was good. However, we did glim some of the other highly-ballyhood shows and thought most fell flat. One that comes to mind at once was Danny Thomas. They probably had to fumigate the studio after that one. Of course, we don't all enjoy the same tilings. On the other hand, did really enjoy .Herb Alperf s special Wednesday night. Hope there is improvement along the line somewhere. It is sorely needed! WITH football now in the foreground, ifs time once again to try and stump you with names of former greats - and where they played. Here are five: Ev Garbett, Ken Mercer, Lloyd Bohannon, Dick Cowan and Bruiser Kinnard. Here's a hint. instances they gained fame more than one school. Rots Ruck!
