6-Algona (la.) Upper DM Melnw Thursday, Nov. 2, 1967 More 1967 Soybeans In Price Support Than 1966 Farmers in Kossuth county have put more 1967-crop soybeans under loan this year than was the case for 1966 crops at tlds time last year, Richard I. Anderson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, reports. Totals of major 1967 crops under loan in the county as of Oct. 24, 1967 include: soybeans - 900,919 bushels and oats- 22,285 bushels. National totals through Sept. 30 showed more 1967 crops of corn rice, barley, oats and wheat, but less soybeans, grain sorghum, rye and dry edible beans had been .placed under price support loan than was the case for 1966 crops a year ago. Wheat put under loan through Sept. 30 from the current crop totals 139 563,737 bushels as compared to 75,992,863 bushels from last year's crop at the similar date. This report also showed the extent of price-support activity in other grains. ACTION Last week's fifth period Biology class had a little unusual action. As Kim Slonike r was balancing his chair toward the end of the class period, he accidentally fell backward, sliding on the floor for a few yards, but escaped without injury. The next day in the same class, Virginia Evers had a bad case of the hiccups which Mr. Nettleton tried to get rid of by scaring her. . . .he got rid of Virginia's hiccups but Phil Bode, who was sitting near her, all of a sudden found he had them. What a coincidence! * * * Some of us learned last week not to say "Hi" to some teachers. . . .or you just may be kicked out of class I * * * Congratulations to Rich Black and Max Laird on being selected as AHS candidates for American Field Service study abroad. Neither one has any idea where they might be going at this time. * * * Juniors voted on class rings last Thursday during American history class. They had a choice of three types. Was voting on the rings really better than American history? If you saw some wearing towels around each leg it wasn't an injury, but a smart move to keep warm. Yes, you're right - it was Randy Calhoun. + * * Mr. Vlnt's first period speech class turned into tears Thursday as Al Aldrich was doing a pantomime of a hunter after a deer and went to the window to spot the target. Just as Al did this, a lady walked by outside and saw him. The lady is still wondering what It was all about. G.R.A. girls were to sign up sometime last week for the annual "Powder Puff football games. It should be a close contest between the sophs and the freshmen. * * * The boys who ordered their blazers for this year's sports events were to pick them up last week. . . .first person we saw wearing these snappy numbers was Rog Barr. . . .they're really groovy. . . .you look nice, Rog. Congratulations to the Voc Ag team on taking second in soil judging district competition. They were Rod Rogert, Don Camp, Dave Sabin, Joe Pfeffer and Steve Schultz. This week's capital jargon words: Benjamin- real important; Boss - someone real cool (like Dave Lowman); and Hip "in." Last week's Paddle Winner for outstanding defensive work ended in a tie so two paddles were given out. Rich Black and Randy Calhoun got the honors. School was dismissed early Thursday because of the faculty taking a tour of Algona industrial firms. . . .but that still didn't stop the coaches from having practice. And speaking of practice, if any of you happened to go by the field did you see a fev: gridders wearing "Long Johns"? . Gary Gade: "Hello, Darrell, fishing?" Darrell Miller: "Nope, drowning worms." * * * Go Bulldogs-Beat Clear Lake 1 STRONG CHURCHES.. "Let every sou/ be subject unto the higher powers. ; The Christian ideal is embodied in these words St. Paul spoke to the Christians of his day on the subject of Roman government. Government may not always be right and just. Yet revolution and bloodshed are not the Christian way. In the final analysis, the determining factor in any form of government is the attitude of the average citizen. In a democracy such as we have in the United States, each individual has the privilege — and the right — to vote his convictions, to do his part to support and to elect responsible officials at all levels of government.
