GOOD NEIGHBORS KNOW Around The Town & Country YOUR COUNTRY NEIGHBOR YOUR ALGONA NEIGHBOR MeeT Eugene Henry Of Algona WATCH THIS SPACE EVERY OTHER WEEK TO MEET A NEW COUNTRY NEIGHBOR This week's Country Neighbor is Eugene Henry, who farms 220 acres 3Vt miles west of Algona with his brother, Jack. Except for time spent in the If. S. Army several years ago, Eugene is a lifelong resident of Kossuth county. He was born here in 1930. The Henrys are sons of Mr. and Mrs. Simon Henry, who farm near Hobarton. They raise'pigs for market and have Aberdeen Angus cattle, with about 50 calves fed out each year for market. During 1960, Eugene and Jack raised more livestock on the farm than during any previous year. Eugene has been on the present farm since his discharge from the army, is not married — and his main "hobby" seems to be his cattle, a breed he has raised since he got his first one at the age of 11. Besides Eugene and Jack, the Henrys have two other children. They are Tom, at home, and Ardyth (Mrs. Roman Knecht), West Bend. Tom showed the grand champion baby beef at the Kossutb County Fair in 1960.
