"Our Business Is Building" Algona and Ortosen THIS IS THE WEEK OF THE ACADEMY awards. Stars df the movie world were honored with Oscars for the achievement during the past year. Several years in the past this column has tried to ape the Oscars with Martha awards of its own, because I have ailways been convinced that there is p'lenty of achievement in ordinary-life that goes unsung. This year, the Martha awards are beiing nominated from my files — the stories of local people I've used in fealture stories and in this column. •• * » • • THE MARTHA FOR BEING Algona's best-known and best-liked citizen could very well go to C. B. (Charles) Muntagh, and I doubt if there will be a single vote of dissension. Mr. Murtagh recently retir* ea after 62 years of banking. His friends come from every facet of his busy life, in-politics, In church, in business relationship and almost anyone he happens to meat on the streets all over the state ' , -, . ,'•;•*• . ... •( THE MARTHA FOR CONSISTENCY TO IDEALS goes to the Algona League of Women Voters, who every year conduct a voters' service program including instruction on how to properly mark a ballot. Recently, they had two spoiled ballots a.t their own election! The tellers, who were admittedly strict, disqualified one ballot because of an erasure, the other because the voter had doodled on it. THE YOUNG AGRICULTURIST MARTHA should go to DaVid Humphrey, who.ait 14 farmed 43 acres of bottomland on his own am harvested a crop despite three floods and a fire that destroyed mos of ithe machinery, com crib and chicken house. The crop was sold a silage, bu't according to last reports David will still be farming this year when the high waiter goes down. * * * ' THE NEVER-TOO-LATE-TO-LEARN Martha goes to Mrs. Dorothy. Arend, who a't 36 after a 20 year lapse between her junior and senior high school years, went back to school and was graduated with the Algona Community high school class of 1960. * * * . THE AMERICAN SUCCESS STORY MARTHA should go to Joe Greenberg, bull unfortunately, it will have to be post-humously I have long admired Mr. Greenberg, but it was the Rabbi's talk alt His luneral thalt summed up the "Where but in America?" angle for me. Joe Greenberg found life in Russia, where he was born, intolerable so at age 17 he came to the States alone, without education, or money. He came to Algona with a peddler's pack, established and operated a business with integrity and made a place of honor for nimself and his fine family. For years they were almost the only people of their faith in the community. As was said in his memory He was a credit to the finest of both the Jewish and the American traditions. THE MARTHA FOR CRUSADING FOR purity in use of the English language goes to Stu McFadden, the Great White Father at uie bmoke Shop. According to my scouts, Stu rebuked one of his patrons for saying "I seen". The fellow replied, "How come you •ddnt bawl that other guy out when he used the same expression?" Mu said, Well, you should know better. You've been to college." ' c -^ DA UGHTER OF THE PIONEERS Martha goes to HorteW Smilth Ferguson, Born here to an early pioneer family, Mrs. Ferguson has weathered good/times and bad with an indomitable spirit/When wealth evaporated with the bank failures, Mrs. Ferguson rolled : uip her sleeves and went ;to work, reared her boys, tended 'her flowers ner big house, always managing to get a kick out of living Alt P u i ?, r* J? stl i 1 going stron & After working 26 hours with her at 7T e i ectlon > l Save up exhausted and went to bed; Mrs. Ferguson ^- d ° Dod ee for an afternoon and evening of visiting with THE MARTHA FOR BRAVERY BEYOND The Call of Duty goes to Mr. and Mrs. Louis Reilly, who with their 13 children in one station wagon made a successful trip to California flast summer. They returned in time to welcome little Maureen Immacullata, number 14 into the family, and were still enthusiastic enough about family travell projects to take a weekend jaunt to McGregor last fall —an io of them!, o • • THE SINGING HEART MARTHA could go to Kim Jinho Deal out it must by all means be shared with his adopted mother and blather, Celia and Don Deal. Don found the young Korean orphan while he was in service and five years later brought him to Algona. f£, dunn f the tlr P, e uhe attended Algona high school, Kim delighted local residents with his beautiful tenor voice. Now he's a student at Drake University. The dream: singing at the Met, and if it is realiz- a, it will also be a star in the crowns of several Algona people who have helped him. . p LuVerne folks Visit, Mr and Mfs Hertry.
