8-A!pono (la.) Upper Dei Moin«t W*dn*jde>y, Feb. 21, 1968 iniminiiHuiifii RAMBLINGS FROM RUTH On the bulletin board in my office I keep a mottc to glance at from time to time and fc • the visitors in my office to read. Here's the one I have up currently TAKE TIME TO THINK- It is the source of power. TAKE TIME TO BE FRIENDLY - It is the road to happiness. TAKE TIME TO GIVE - It is too short a day to be selfish. TAKE TIME TO WORK- It is the price of success. TAKE TIME TO LAUGH - It is the music of the soul. FARM PAGE TAKE TIME TO PRAY AND GIVE THANKS- It is the greatest power and privilege on earth. I don't know who wrote it. I copied it from a newsletter and the author was given as unknown. However, it says a lot to me and Bathing dogs... or washing dishes, washing clothes or taking a shower, you always have plenty of hot water with an electric hot water heater Electric water heating saves you money four ways: 1. Costs less to install — short pipe runs, no chimney connections. 2. Low cost to operate — highly efficient, no heat loss. 3. Costs less to maintain — no valves to stick, nothing to burn out. 4. Low cost to buy — lasts longer, reducing your long-term investment. Remember, for better living, you can't beat electric living! Algona Municipal Utilities ••••••••••••••I •••••••••• STRONG "Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. " — Deuteronomy 25:4 Every worker has the right to expect to be rewarded for his efforts. Without just reward, there is little incentive. To deny a man that which he has earned is unjust. And the reward, as the Apostle Paul pointed out in his Epistle to Timothy, should be in relation to effort and achievement. In our economic system, no man works for nothing. The primary motive is establishment of a livelihood. As a secondary effort, some individuals work for "recognition", for the achievement of status within the community. And, some work because they have a desire to serve, to do good, to help others. The best work is always done by those who have love and respect for the thing that needs doing — and a just reward is little enough for their efforts.

In these busy times we are living in I feel that we must all make the best use of our time — and this is a pretty good way to do it. The young people who went to winter camp certainly did all of these and had a lot of fun in doing them. So I'd like to add one more: TAKE TIME TO PLAY AND HAVE FUN - It is the frosting on the cake. More about 4-H winter camp — The names of the campers attending 4-H Winter Camp from the Hurt area were inadvertantly omitted from the story on winter camp. They were Mark Mawdsley, John Kiley and Cindy Faber. Sharon Hix from Sexton was also omitted. It seems that people and things are always getting separated. Several items that were left on the bus are waiting for their owners to claim them at the E xtension Office. ;... » » DEVELOPMENTS • FROMDEVALOIS • >•••••••••••••«•••••*.

MEMOS FROM MARGARET Electric Housewares - especially small electrical kitchen equipment - is being featured in many stores now. The Electric Housewares manufacturers had their spring showing in Chicago last month and many new and interesting changes were seen. "Versatility with convenience" - that's the spring forecast for the heat-producing group of electric housewares in your kitchen. From fry pans and coffee makers to toaster sand warming trays, new improvements are occurring. The new electric fry pans come in squared or round shape with two serving handles. Some come with a colorful porcelain finish on the outside which makes serving on the dining or buffet table more appropriate. A fry pan with a high dome cover lets you cook roasts and whole chickens as well as the usual frying jobs. Others come with su, built-in brpiler, inside the cover!' ' ,'_'"_ " In the care corner, more manufacturers than ever are using a hard-based Teflon or other nonstick finish that makes cleaning easy, but less touchy. Coffeemakers are going modern in care. Some are completely immersible for more thorough cleaning. To "sweeten" coffee makers with interiors other than aluminum do this once a month add 11/2 teaspoons baking soda to each six cups of water making enough of this solution to make a full pot and boil for a short time. To clean an aluminum coffee maker use one tablespoon cream of tartar for each two cups of water. Versatility takes a new twist in toasters. A radiant heat control adjusts itself automatically to fit the moisture content of the bread whether it is fresh, day old, or frozen bread. The new slim line style is trimmer for easier storage. Whether you are in the market for a new portable electrical appliance or want to know how to take care of the ones you have there is a new series of bulletins available from the Extension Office.

Co. Ill E. Call St. Algona, Iowa Steal Roasts, Radio, Safe At Fenton The grade school and Fenton Motor Co. were broken into by thieves sometime during the night last Wednesday. Food, $3 in cash and a radio valued at $60 were taken from the buildings. A pry bar was used to open a rear door on the west side of the school building. Once inside, the culprits went into the lunch room where they stole a 20-pound turkey and three beef roasts, weighing 4-5 pounds. A GE. transistor radio was stolen from another room, and it is probable a search of the building took place. A south door was forced at the garage and the cash register was pried open. The $3 was taken, along with a small safe, which was taken from the building. It contained nothing but business papers. It was recovered from a ditch a short distance northwest of the town. Deputy Sheriff Don Wood investigated the thefts. Ringsted Ladies Issue Challenge In Basketball FENTON - The Band Mothers of Sentral school met Monday evening at the school.
