J-Algona (la.) Upper DM MelnM Thursday, Nov. 16, 1967 First County Concert The 1967-68 Kossuth County Community Concert Series will open Thursday, Nov. 16, at 8 p.m. in the Algona High School auditorium with the presentation of "The Singing Boysof Monterrey," composed of 30 boys, ages 8 through 12, who are now on their third highly- successful tour of the United States, including appearances on such TV shows as Ed Sullivan. Their repertory is vast. It includes church music, large choral works, contemporary music, folk music of many lands, plus the wonderfully colorful Mexican and Indian folk songs, so much a part of their heritage. From a poor section of the city of Monterrey, the Choristers give the money that is earned on their tours to the schools of that section. Their own formal education is held in the summer and during their tours they are accompanied by two teachers, as well as their conductor and pianist. ipiiiiHniiiniiiiiiiiniiiiiiuiiiiniiiiiiuiiiiiiniiira For some time, I have been interested in McGuffey's readers as I thought it was in one of them mother ;uid I read about a magic mill that would grind out anything you'd ask for. As a child I thought it a wonderful thing - still do, though I'm a big girl now and realize the impossibility. I always pictured it as being like the coffee mills everyone used long ago. It must have been in some other book for I couldn't find it in the several McGuffeys Kitty Phillips brought me. Then there was a story in mother's book about a couple sitting before the fireplace and a fairy appeared and told them they could have three wishes. The woman apparently was . .by Evelyn hungry for she wished for a pudding. Her husband was so disgusted with her he said, "I wisli it was on your nose" and of course, it happened as he wished. The poor woman didn't want to go around with a pudding on her nose so she wished it was off, ajid immediately her wisli was granted. Then the couple spent the evening thinking of the three wishes, so absurd, when they could have had something worthwhile. - o - I found some old poems I liked"Gray's Elegy", "Backward, Turn Backward, Oil Time in Your Flight", and "Which Shall It Be", a poem about a couple who had Sleep well tonight- your telephone is awake The odds are you won't need to call the police, or-firemen, or a doctor tonight... but isn't it reassuring to know that they're all within quick, easy reach by telephone. Day or night, there's a wonderful feeling of security in knowing that your telephone is always ready to bring help in an emergency. Northwestern Bell been offered riches and a wonderful opportunity for a life of comfort and ease for one of the children. The wife and husband, John, looked at their sleeping seven children and wondered which it should be. They considered it carefully, then decided to write the relative that all were- so dear they couldn't spare any. - o - Some of the material in the books seemed too adult for youngsters, and so much was on the morbid side. But it was fun reading some of the articles and I appreciate having had them. - o - Not long 'Ago I mentioned the late Leona Macumber in this column and a few days ago I had a letter from her daughter- in-law, Mrs. David Macumber, nee Kathy Prothman, Omaha. She said Tom is in San Diego and is making the Navy his career. He and his wife have a little daughter, Sherrie, who will be a year old in January. Dave and his wife have two children, 6 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old. Dave is a meat cutter and manager of a meat market in Omaha. Nice to hear from you, Mrs. Macumber. Thanks. - o I seem to have been selected as the historian of the Cady and Henderson families, and I am somewhat flattered. I wish I had paid more attention to details than I did, but I've done fairly well at that. A few months ago Melvin Henderson's Gayle (Mrs. Herbert Kierulff) asked for some information and any pictures I might not mind parting with. I met her request the best I could, and now a few days ago another cousin, Glen Henderson, Hemet, Calif., wrote for information and pictures for his grandson who is taking an interest in his family tree, the Hendersons and Wilburs. He wanted dates, too, which I was able to furnish but I am stripped of pictures. I suggested that he write to Gayle who I know would be glad to have some taken off the old Henderson home and the family group picture taken around 1890. - o - I have had such a wonderful trip to Hawaii and Thailand, a la Ed and Genevieve Genrich. They brought their slides here Tuesday, let me choose my "tickets" and I spent a most enjoyable time seeing what they had actually seen on one of their recent trips. The pictures are superb. Ed does a wonderful job and the pictures are taken at just the right angles.

Their next trip will be in May and June to Alaska. Both look wonderful, and in spite of Genevieve's illnesses of not too long ago, she looks the picture of health, feels fine, but is careful to stay within "limits." They showed pictures of their family, Howard arid his wife and the three sons, handsome lads. They were here a few years ago and I chose Egypt and the Holy Land. It certainly was most informative and when Easter rolls around, I think of the pictures and it brings the Great Day closer and more meaningful. Thailand is noted for its beautiful temples and one wonders how a race whom we class as primitive could have fashioned these wonderful, ornate buildings. - o This reminds me that Marg Dahl is by this time in Germany. I wish I could see just what she is doing. Probably eating her way through tons of sauerkraut and German sausages. Makes me drool! How about you, Fern Foster ? And the wonderful German pastries! I'll never forget the delicious breads and rolls Mrs. Lorenz (Dutch's mother) made and being at her home with mother many times for afternoon snacks. Her daughter, Elva Coon, has probably inherited her mother's culinary perfection. I envy the John Thompsons with whom she makes her home. Cora is a daughter of Mrs. Coon. - o - (i A letter just came from Glen Henderson's sister Lola (Mrs. Chauncey Swinney). I was glad for her news that her older sister, Lottie, has now moved from her mountain cabin home to a house at San Bernardino. It is a nice city and much closer to Lola, Glen and the fourth member of the family, Carl. - o - There are some of the meanest, low-down people in the world, and a thief rates at or near the top. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Furst, who have worked hard all summer at their refreshment stand and barber shop, took an eight-day vacation to Branson, Mo. in the Ozarks area. One night they stopped at a Holiday Inn motel and took only the cases needed. Many clothes and shoes were left in the car, the car locked, and behold, in the morning, a window had been broken and EVERY bit of clothing taken. Two coats of particular value are lamented most by Mrs. Furst, but she said it had taught her a lesson. NEVER leave anything in the car. Cars parked nearby were from out-of- state and I said, "If you ever see a woman with a coat like yours, grab her and do some extensive questioning- or tear it off her I" - o - I looked forward to Saturday evening, Nov. 11 and the Welk program. I was sure he would play some of my favorites, Roses of Picardy, My Buddy, Charmaine, Long, Long Trail, and Diane. I woke from a nap the other day hearing John Arn- dorfers' radio playing my father's favorite, "Love, Here is my Heart." Yes, I confess to tears. He, Ruth and Glen Raney and I were easily moved by music. Some kinds of music do more for me than a sermon. - o - Gee whiz 1 With Raymond Burr doing "Ironsides", a type of Perry Mason, why couldn't the THIS ONE GOBBLES HAY AND EAR CORN Just as Fast as You Can Feed it. BRADYGRINDER - MIXER Feeders asked for a better grinder-mixer, one to perform at high volume without "spoon feeding."

I have good reasons for loathing wheel chairs and to see Burr whizzing around in one irks me. I wonder. "Eenie, Meenie, Mini, Mo, how much shorter can skirts go?" Franzenburg To Talk Here This Saturday The Democratic Central Committee announced today that State Treasurer Paul Franzenburg will be celebrating his birthday Nov. 18 when he appears at the Democrat's fund-raising dinner this Saturday. Mr. Franzenburg, whom many consider to be the logical Democratic candidate for Governor in the event Governor Hughes runs for the U. S. Senate, has been in Kossuth county several times in recent years. Although many public officials have spoken lie re at political dinners down through the years, this is the first time in recent memory that a high state official has celebrated his birthday in Algona. County Chairman Joe Straub stated that the Democrats were delighted to have Mr. Franzenburg pick Kossuth county for his celebration. He said they were enthusiastic about having him here in any event, but that the birthday party will add a festive air to the occasion. The dinner will be held at the Veterans Memorial Building in Algona at 7 p.m. Prior to the dinner, beginning at 6p.m., there will be a reception at which dinner guests will have an opportunity to visit informally with Mr. Franzenburg. The reception is also at the Veterans Memorial Building. Tifonka Good Neighbors At Christensens Good neighbors gathered at r the farm of Mrs. Clarence Chris- te'nsen, whose husband recently died, came Wednesday, Nov. 1, with pickers and wagons and picked and cribbed a good share of the corn crop. Farm Service Co. furnished gas for the tractors. The farm is located five miles south of Titonka.
