ca 00*11 OM ->A!gBHtt (la.) By Russ Waller Anderson, who lives in the Welp ,. chicken ' range near B&ncrdft, Went over to help with the field work on another farm operated by John Boeckholt and owned by Welp's, in the Swea Gity area. While George was cultivating hfe had quite a sur- ijfise when h6 routed two bad. gers in the field. One of them njade , for George, who decided discretion was the better part of v"alor arid went for help. Between Anderson . and Boeckholt tttc men killed the two badgers. Cater it was found that one of the yo'ung .badgers had rabies. m * * * "Mrs; Everett Steven of Sexton received a check for $5 for dh artecdote she submitted for publication in the August issue of "Together", the Methodist family magazine. Her story f olIflws: "The parishioner dozed in church, hoping not to be noticed ijy the preacher. On leaving he remarked to the minister, 'Thai Tgas a fine sermon. I certainly agreed with you.' "••>••• "I know," said the preacher ffl-avely, "I saw you nodding." *T ' * * * * Spotted in a daily, this headlyie: •-. , "" 3 MISSING IN STORM " ALONG GOLF COAST ' "Must be ; a tough course", re- fflarked Don Smith. SALUTE OF THE WEEK: .j, , - . r To Charles H. Young of Mus- cjatine, who dug into his own pocket for $2,000, to mark the It»wa portion, of the Great River' Road'(Gulf :to Canada along the Mississippi) when the Iowa attorney general' Said the highway 'commission could not spend the money to put up the signs. ?. * » * , One of those attending the regional meeting at Fort Dodge of tjie Ahepa" Society, a Greek organization, was Alex Dermand of Algona. He was a charter rfcember when this area unit was. organized, 40 years ago. Ahepu stands for "American Hellenic Educational Progress Ass'n." . „ « * * ' Our County Board of Supervisors will take up the mattei of whether the county shall or shall not purchase voting machines for future elections, at a rjjecting set for July 14. Estimated cost of the machines: $83,040 The present method of tabulating votes and eventually reporting the results to the county au djtor, is a little ancient. We have spent most of the night at the court house waiting for one 01 two final precincts to report only to find out the next morning that the precinct judges counted the votes, then went home and to bed, bringing the votes in the next morning. Even voting machines could not correct this little error. * * # " Many counties have machines and like them; one county (Vin ton) had the interesting expuri ehce a couple of years ago o finding that a machine for ont party designation in a large pn cinct had not been registering all of the votes for some years So even a machine can go bad Kossuth would require 48 machines. There is no question but that the voting could be counted and tabulated much faster. How- eVer, the present archaic method of counting by individuals could also be speeded up greatly by common sense, and if laws allowed a tabulation all through the voting day so that a running total could be maintained. * * * The present system of numerous judges, clerks and counting personnel gets a lot people into the act, but it is costly, slow and based on working by the hour. We are not advocating the expenditure of $83,000 for the machines, but we do admit that the system of counting and totaling the votes could be greatly improved. i * * * The Town Cynic remarks thai there isn't a thing wrong with this country that couldn't be quickly corrected if we.'d just let the Register & Tribune mi, tilings. * * * "Used to be a man who saved money was a miser, now he is a wonder." * * * Famous Last Line — Well you can make yourself Ridiculous without hall trying I 5t1 , Wesley, Dies; Rites Are Held Funeral services tot Clarenct E.
