Former Algonan Invents Button Water Control A well-known former Algo- nan, Donald Weaver of Northwood has invented a push button water temperature control system that may change the old water faucets on sinks, bathtubs and lavoratories. Weaver has patented the idea, perfected the controls and recently sold his susiness in NorthWood to devote full time to manufacturing it. Weaver got the . idea for . the invention about nine years ago When he stepped into a shower and nearly scalded himself because the faucet setting wasn't quite right or someone had turned on the cold water , in ' some other part of the house. He wondered why there couldn't be some way to set the temperature of the water and always be sure. ;hat it would remain that temperature. He set about doirig something about it and completed his first unit,4n the fall of 1?59; : There were" "bugs" in it 'and after almost another full year of ex- the push , button 8 OFFICIAL PROGRAM KOSSUTH COUNTY FAIR - 1961 - ALGONA, IOWA TUESDAY - AUGUST 15 .

It passed 'all the tests and is now fully protected by patents. The control has four buttons on it, for cold, warm and warmer settings for showers and a hot button for sinks. The control panel can be installed anywhere on or near the sink, shower, tub. and the rest of the unit includng valves, thermostats and mani- x>lds is located in the basement or utility room. It is thought hat the complete push button emperature control unit will not cost more than he convenionai )lumblng in ne'w construction. Those in the plumbing industry have been enthusiastic about the invention. The Chicago firm that has furnished' the valves for the three working models Wea- »yer has, indicated there should *be practically unlimited demand for the units. Weaver plans to /remain in Northwood to set up the manufacturing plant — at ; first on .a small scale. , Weaver and his wife, the former Jeanette Maasdam grew up here and farmed- in i the Plum Cieek area before going to.Fay- etteville, Ark., where .they had a chicken ranch. They have lived in Northwood for about eight years.

CONSOLIDATED CO-OP CREAMERIES WHITTfMORf, IOWA August 10,1961 SUMMER IS THE TIME WHEN TELEVISION, excepting for he ball games, is mostly repeats or repeats of repeats. Sines'Woman's World is now 12 years old, I thought I'd. go clear back in the files and look up the very first column published — on August 4, 1949; also thought, with a Saturday afternoon in which I didn't have to work, I'd get the whole ilhing wound up so that I'd have Sunday freei Jut I hadn't looked at the '49, '50 and '51 columns for years, and I got so absorbed in the hectic and wonderful days whten our kids vere little, that time ito get supper came and I had not written 'a* '. I also got a little misty-eyed with nostalgia. • * * . * . THE FIRST COLUMN STARTED off, "In preparing this column, I was told by the Upper Des Moines that it should contain terns of interest to women only. Well, what do we girls in Algorij} nlk about over our coffee cups, at our club meetings, and out in>, he back yard while we are hanging out ithe wash? Isn't it mostly \ hildren, food, local affairs and our husbands?" *.»*.,.' "THE MEN SOMETIMES SCORNFULLY label it chatter, yak- ty-yak and just plain gossip, buit we' girls know tha't'we.'clon't gossip my more than the men do when they get together.-We'just talk . ibout important things — important to us, anywayX'Ahy mother shows that the bright sayings of her children are, more (important han what some Congressman says, clear out in Washington. Some- imes the children make just as much sense. When baby:cijts a tooth t's jusit as exciting as any sports world speed record aAtNMhe little herubs are, really going good they can ' wreck.alriiost'."as 'many hings as any itorntfdo thait comes into the news." •';'••'';'-: ;: ' :: ' •" "If our'husbands only knew it, sometimes they., are i partly at null, too, when they compladn about, the daily^billrof-fiare lacking niterest. Sometimes a meal thiat was highly attractive a't'six loses juMe a bit of its glamour wh'en it has to wait for ithe man of; the louse to show 'up about seven, And Some of the women are-saddled, with finicky husbands who don't like this or that. Thanh goodness, 'm blessed with a fellow who will .eat almpst anything. In fact he requently does — all mixed up together'to avoid throwing oultleft- vers. Anyway, Heaven please deliver me from having to cook for a trictly meat, potatoes and pie man." ' v , * * * •••.:•. I SAVED ALL MY FAN 'MAIL IN the early dlays.-buit the first wo letters were not complimentary. I was writing incognito then, nd the first one ithoughlt I was being insulting when I meant to M omplimentary, and the Other letter said she felt sorry for 'any doft liat would h,aye 'to. live at our house. About the time I was ready to ive up, ithe nice letters started coming. For some reason, most of . hem were from Fenton and that's why I'll always have, a warm pot in my heart for people there. * * * •...'.. . .'. .• .'. ,. •' ' ; , ANOTHER CRITICISM I RECEIVED WAS oral. (Why do the unfavorable ones stick in my craw so much longer than (the nice ones?) This one, "Why can't you write something interesting? Aill you italic abouit is your kids, your relatives, 'and cooking!' 1 A glance at 'the files proves that I was, indeed, guilty, especially .in talking about my kids. But now I am glad ithat I did, for I've been wondering how long it took our "preemie", Jean to, learn to walk, It was 15 months for it says in the column, "The; baby;: finally'took her first steps this week!" (She'd been talking finsentences: long" before that.) '•,,-< . .

They planned to be married and start finit grade, together,'' Ijfun Waller us'quoted : as borrowing her mother's glasses so she coMd ruin her'eyes and "get glasses like Midgie". Midgie is Marijahe Williams, and I doubt if she wears glasses any more. There Is also a promise to bake Antoinette BonnsteMer a birthday cake when sh« reaches 90, because Antoinette had just done the same thing .fot Tillie Ingersol'l. * * * " ; WHAT A GANG OF KIDS WE had in our neighborhood then! There were the two Dunns, Dave McDonald, ftwo Vlnsons, Larry Hudson, the Richardsons, the Hardgrove kids, a couple of Mbnacos and a large assortment of others. We had war waged in our yard practically every do.y. The forts were paper boxes and there were many fist fights but peace was restored almost immediately if thle) mdthcrs kept out of it. Bill is recorded ais being in love with his first grade teacher, Bertha Godfrey, but I could never get much oult of him about school. "Our teacher doesn't want us to blab at home about what goes on at school", he said. * * * THERE IS QU.ITE A BIT O* 1 correspondence about a remedy for box elder bugs and several letters asking for ithe buckwhealt pancake recipe Mrs. C. B. Murtagh gave me. There's an item about a trip Jean Miner and I almost took to Des Moines to see "Guys and Drills". We had to sitay home .because of the icy weather. Billy Hall went swimming in a mud puddte and the same week Tommy Sawyer gat muddy when he was on (the way to Joan Post's birthday party. * * * • THE MASTER COLUMNIST AWARD I received for my first year of writing brought me a nice pack of correspondence as did the national award received a few years later. Those, the only two contests I ever entered, gave me many delusions of .grandeur, but alas, neither the riches nor the fame I dreamed of then. * * * ONE QUOTE FROM AN EARLY column, "Parenthood is composed of long days, but short years", seems even, more true today. The "baby" who used to awaken me in the night for her bottle, can now get a whole meal for the family; the "three year old" who had favorite baby-sitters then, now has favorite baby sitting customers; and the "five year old" who came proudly home from kindergarten to announce he could print his name, is off for college in a few weeks. Things are still hectic at our house, but in a different way. hate to say which are the best years of our lives. * • « THIS WEEK'S RECIPE is from ithait champion cook, Mrs. Harold Hobson, my mother.
