Engineer Scholarships To Two Algona Boys BY KUSS WALLER If the Dick Cooks, who expect to leave shortly for a vacation trip to Puerto Rico, will promise to get the interview, we'll furnish a press card with which they can attempt to get an exclusive from Adam Clayton Powell. Nobody but Al could do it I Al Huenhold, ever a discerning soul, won a $10 l>et by picking the Boston Red Sox to win the American League pennant. Only trouble is, the $10 he won came from a fellow who trimmed your columnist for the same amount . . . woe to us, we bet early in the season that the Twins wouldn't finish in the top four . . . that was before Sam Mele made his exit. * * * Mrs. Kathy Salyer of Chicago, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Dermand, subscribes to "The lowan" magazine, and found this in the fall issue in the "100 Years Ago" section: PRAIRIE FIRES (Charles City)- Prairie Fires have wrought incalculable destruction in Kossutli County within the last few days. The Upper Des Moines, published at Algona says: 'On Friday night of last week the whole region round about was brilliantly lighted up with a blaze of burning grass, fences, stables and hay stacks. We have not seen the owners to ascertain the exact amount of loss, but we hear of Mr. Neeling having lost sixty tons of hay, Mr. Benschoter twenty tons, Mr. Stacy fifteen tons, and Mr. Durrin a large stack, we did not learn how much. From the appearance of the fire in every direction, we should judge that this is but a tithe of the damage done in this county that night. As we said two weeks ago these fires are often started just for fun. In some cases, they are the result of accident, or what is more frequently the case of 'back fires' set for protection against approaching fires.' * * * The new state sales tax of 3 percent, expanded to most services now, in practicality amounts to about a 2 percent increase in the general cost of living for all of us ... we predict that very few are going to feel gay and happy about the added burden. Leo Immerfall, for many years county assessor, and prior to that county auditor, did not have an enviable job in the assessor's office . . . not very many are ever happy svith their assessments, but Leo like a referee "called 'em as he sees 'em" ... although he never was responsible for setting the millage levies, which is all a result of local area budgets . . . good luck to his successor, who may have to face the prospect of revaluations as ordered by the State Tax Commission some months back, and which doesn't have a very pleasant sound. A lawyer was telling his son the story of Cinderella. When he finished the wide-eyed lad looked up and asked: "When the pumpkin turned into a beautiful coach, was that figured as straight income or capital gain?" Famous Last Line - Well, if they once had steamboats lie re on the Des Moines river, they might have had streetcars at Burt.
