If Jr.^ l)a ***'* Up P* f BM Moinw thuftdoy, Jon. 18, 1968 Hampster Plays Dead In Store Hero/sm Award Goes To Swea City Airman At Irvin 9 fon VALDOSTA, GA. - U. S. Air Force Captain Charles A. Hanson, at right above, son of Mrs. Gladys Hanson, Swea City, has been decorated with two awards of the Silver Star for heroism in southeast Asia at Moody AFB, Ga. Captain Hanson earned the first Silver Star for gallantry while piloting an F-105 Thunderchief against an opposing force near Hanoi, North Vietnam. Disregarding his own personal safety, the captain attacked two surface-to-air missile (SAM) sites, destroying one completely and knocking out the radar control van at the other. -The attack was carried out while the captain was under attack ffom the SAM sites and subject to intense anti-aircraft fire. Captain Hanson won his second Silver Star for gallantry in another air action over Hanoi. On this occasion, the captain exposed his plane to SAMs and heavy anti-aircraft fire while attacking SAM sites to protect his F-105 strike force. He preoccupied the missile crews to the extent nine SAMs were fired at his aircraft but none at the strike force. Captain Hanson is now an instructor pilot at Moody. He was commissioned in 1957 through the aviation cadet program. The captain is a graduate of Swea City High School. His wife, Harriet, is the daughter of Mrs. Erma Barnes of 249 S. Ninth St. Gadsden, Ala. GOP Women Plan Series Of Coffees The Republican Women of Kossuth county are sponsoring a series of coffees and book reviews during January.

Charley is a hampster who makes his home in a cage at the Irvington store. Last week, Charley was thrown out by Marguerite Hayes, store owner, when he did not respond to being poked. However, Charley began to kick when he lit in a snow bank, so Marguerite picked him up and carried him back inside the store for observation. Sure enough, when he was placed near the heater, Charley became as lively as he had ever been. Charleen Klein, Charley's owner, then reported that she had read somewhere that hampsters hibernate. Evidently Charley got cold one night in the store and decided it was time to do just that. He has afforded quite a bit of entertainment and laughs for visitors to the store - and has amazed some recently — especially those who had heard of his "death." 90 Years Young Mrs. Mary Kain, Algona, will be honored at open house in honor of her 90th birthday Jan. 20 at the Johnson House from 2 to 4 p. m. All relatives and friends are invited to attend. Her children will be hosts and they request that no gifts be brought. NEED A TYPEWRITER FOR SCHOOL? YOU GET THE BEST DEAL AT THE UPPER DES MOINES PUB.
