tft-A!»dfta, (lo.) Upper De* Mein« W*dne$day, Feb. 21 1968 |i .. • History Of Beanl^per7 NeW Vehlde Here Is Quite Lengthy Registrations MM V^k d 1 A f ft By EVELYN CADY It is Bean Supper time again here Feb. 22. It will be held at the V.F.W. hall and the Izaak Waltons will assist. Serving will be from 5 till 7:30 p.m. Bean suppers are of historical interest as they began as a fundraising project, the women being called the "Women's Relief Corps," an auxiliary of the G.A.R.. The present historical rooms were known asG. A.R. hall years ago. It also served as our library until the present one was built. The G.A.R. and the W.R.C. were nourishing enterprises -around 1890 and the suppers, famous for the good food (and enormous quantities), were eag- •erly awaited each year. The old armory was used for the suppers and long tables were erected to take care of the hoards of people who attended. How well I remember the delicious odors of the food. Of course, there were great quantities of baked beans and Boston brown bread. It was truly a gourmet's delight. After the serving, a program was held on a platform erected on the west side of the building and on it sat several of the old soldiers, the Turner brothers, Col. R. H. Spencer, Mr. Spear, AlonzoClark and a few others. There wasalso an organ and group singing of "America," "Tenting Tonight," "Star Spangled Banner," and a patriotic speech. The W.R.C. was organized May 13, 1890 and the women met in the upstairs rooms of the hall, where they sewed, chatted, and I have an idea, made quilts and needed clothing for families, particularly of the G.A.R. Time passed and for a number of years the suppers were discontinued. The last one I went to was served in the dance hall over the Rusk drug store. It was about 1913, but lacked the charm and zest of earlier suppers. The supper was restored a couple of years ago by the Historical Society and I hope it will be well attended. Dump Custodian For the past three years, Hugo Gade, 66, has been custodian of the Algona city dump, and as dumps go has kept an orderly supervised dumping ground. He is pictured here amid the hazy air that surrounds any burning dump. A while back, six more acres of ground were purchased from A. F. Van Buren to allow expansion westward of the Algona dump. Where it might go from here when a relocated dump is designated:, Hugo doesn't know. The State Department of Health, which has asked for a new Algona dump location, has been requested to have representatives meet with the Algona City Council to exchange ideas on the subject of a relocation. Rites Held Tuesday For Young Whittemore Sgt. Funeral services for Kossuth county's second victim of the war in Vietnam, Sgt. Robert E. Ewoldt, 22, Whittemore, were held in St. Paul's Lutheran Church there at 2 p.m. Tuesday, with Rev. Cleo Kautsch officiating. Burial followed at the church cemetery and McCullough's Funeral Chapel was in charge of arrangements. The young sergeant's body was flown to Des Moines Saturday night and returned to Algona Sunday by the funeral home. His brother Hank, also a GI in Vietnam, accompanied the body home for services. A color guard and complete military rites during the funeral and burial were provided by the Seely-Walsh American Legion post at Whittemore. Sgt. Ewoldt died Feb. 6 of a gunshot wound in the body from hostile fire while on patrol duty with the U. S. Marines near Quang Nam in South Vietnam. Pallbearers were Paul Maahs, William Elbert, Elmer Alt, Kenneth Kern, Wayne Schumacher and Norman Parsons. A complete obituary on the young man appeared in earlier issues of the Upper Des Moines.
