Upper De* Moine* Thursday, April 11, 1957 Home-Show Hi Lltes Here and there at the secont • annual Algona Home Show — * * • Mrs John Weyderi of Algona after watching Beecher Lane, bake a potato in four minutes Using a new-fangled oven, remarked simply, "Isn't that something?" It sure was, and the J bacon, cooked to a "T" in a minute and 15 seconds and several other demonstrations Of the oven were something, too. * * • Old acquaintances were re- 1 newed in some instances. An Ames couple, Mr and Mrs Jim Neville, ran into and talked with many friends. Jim, now with a structural clay porducts firm, is a former resident and graduate of Algona high school, while his wife is the former Kay Dimler, Whose parents, Mr and Mrs Arthur Dimler, live at Lu Verne. Kay played basketball in high school at Lu Verne and followed the Lionettes by attending the games in the recent state tournament. Ralph Donovan, Harold Cowan, Bill Steele, Jack Chrischilles and a UDM reporter' were a few of the many who chatted with the Nevilles. Both echoed the senti-, ments of many in attendance when ' they stated, "Algona'a home show is much nicer than the one held at Fort Dodge." * * * All kinds of kids with yardsticks, pipes with balloons over the ends and also for bubble- blowing, and with mouthfulls of gum, were numerous every day. Mary Muckey reported no less than 42 towns represented and 2,200 names in her registration book during the three days, an indication of the interest in the show. One Florida auto was in the parking lot Sunday afternoon, proving the show received wide-spread attention. * » » Lawn-mowing can be made downright leisurely, according to Dick Norton. He showed a mower that had every modern convenience with the possible exception of a TV set and portable bar. He explained the company would "have them on all the 1958 models." The sign-up for next year's model began at once. The muddy condition of the ' parking area failed to keep many persons away, In some areas around the armory, mud was almost "overshoe deep," according to one visitor, who proved it when he came in the door. ; • •*.'« A photographer on the scene was engulfed much of the time •by children, who practically insisted on being in every picture taken. One of thS older boys a^ked "Did I smile?" after each -- flash bulb exploded, * * • Two exhibits seemed to be in ,"keys" spots. One demonstrated the manufacture of 'them, and th,e other gave away 1,500, with onte lucky person likely to receive a new range for the right key. Sunday's crowd was tremendous. According to Dick Carr, , chairman of the event, 1,500 persons paid admission that day alone. Total paid "approached 3,000, compared to 1,950 a year ago. Only opening day did the number present fall below last year's figure, and the final two days far out-distanced 1956. Most exhibitors' ran out of things to give away, including Wes B^rtlett, whose supply of •bubble-pipes was entirely used Wp by the middle of the after"noon Sunday. * • • Was the show a success? Ac* to one exhibitor, he sold .., of his featured item by the middle of Saturday' afternoon, JJe gave no final report at the conclusion of festivities. farm Sale Date .Thursday, April 2$~Lawrence Jensen, on. farm located north of SJwea City by blacktop to Minnesota line, 4 miles east.
