Perhaps he is answering » Help Wanted ad that promises steady work. If so, how does the advertiser know he can promise that business will keep steady and he won't have to lay people off during the dull season ? *.**.. . I DON'T KNOW HOW OLD WANT-ADS are^ but several people in history could have inserted some interesting ones at various times. For example, this ad could have appeared when the United States was still the Colonies. "For Sale: Copper lanterns. One set new, the other Used one time. Good for either land or sea warnings. Paul Revere " •••••.'. "•' * * * .'." AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME, this ad could have appeared. "Wanted: Red, White and Blue cloth. Can be from used coats or petticoats if in good condition. Must be-suitable for flag making. Betsy Ross." DURING THE YEAR 1491, a Spanish newspaper might have carried this want ad: "Am planning to go to the West Indies by ship. Am willing to take_ several passengers to help drive. Proficiency in map making desirable as I plan to chart a new route. Would consider receiving some capital investment in return for a share of the profits after the journey. Christopher Columbus."'

Brigham Young." * * * GarleneGray OfTiionkals Wed Feb. 22 TUonka — Garlene Gray, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Gray, Tllonka, and Virgil Schmidt, son of Mrs. Ray Wessel, Algona, were married Feb. 22 in Ramsey Reformed church, Titonka, at 7:30 p.m. Rev John Jansseri officiated. Mrs. Terry Schutjer was matron of honor, while bridesmaid was Sheryll Gray. The bridal gown was fashioned of white nylon sheer over net over bridal satin, accented with sequined pearled lace applique on the bodice and skirt. A molded shirred bodice, styled with long sleeves, ending In a bridal point, bateau neckline, and traditional button and loop back closing. A very full circular skirt draped from a slightly lowered waistline, flowing into a graceful chapel train. Her veil was shoulder-length made of imported all silk illusion draped from an orange blossom coronet. Best man was August Schmidt and groomsman was Ray Penning. Soloist was Mrs. Goodwin Bergerud, accompanied by Mrs. Roscoe Mawdsley, Jr.. Organist was Mrs. John Smidt. Ushers were Terry Schutjer and Lawrence Weig. A reception was held in the church parlors for 140 guests immediately following the ceremony. Guest book was in charge of Mrs. Bernard Weydert and gifts were displayed by Mrs. Loren Nelson and Linda Larsen. The cake was cut and served by Mrs. Ray Penning and Mrs. Melvin Baas.

EnrMe they visited over the weekend "With Mr. and Mrs. Ffart- :es Pitjlk m Cetiat KifpTds, er of Mrs; COMING UP TO THE PRESENT DAY, there are a couple of classified that could be inserted by famous ladies of our time. For example there is a young lady in Great Britain who, it seems to me, is missing an awfully good chance to earn herself a little extra money, and at the same time help with the mortgage payments. She should advertise in the For Rent columns. I have an ad all set up for her if she should want to buy it. "For Rent: 389 rooms of my 600 room home. Can be made into private 10-room apartments or will rent as individual rooms. Some heat furnished, laundry facilities available and kitchen privileges in the basement. Some rooms have baths; others built-in private ghosts. Call after 9 a.m. Queen Elizabeth, Buckingham Palace, London, England. * * * . THERE IS ANOTHER LADY who has had ample advertising time on TV recently, but it seems to me for really good results she should place a want-ad. It could read, "Second Hand Furniture Wanted. Need not be in good condition as we will restore to better than original condition. Mrs. John F. Kennedy. The White House, Washington, D.C." I ENJOYED SO MUCH MY trip to the Good Hope Methodist church for their mother and daughter banquet this week. The ladies went all out on their program idea — dress patterns, with complete instructions, but what really impressed me was the men who cooked and served the meal. There must have been about 35 of them of all ages I thought jerhaps some woman had planned the food for them, but I was assurred that this was not true ! They did everything themselves and everything was hot and delicious. And they have accomplished this in several previous years. • * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR a kind of cookies called Porcupines, t was submitted to the Presbyterian cook book by Mrs. Edna Harr .ncidentally, the Presbyterian ladies are now out of their popular cookbook but they will have an ample new supply after March 15.
