CHRIS HEESE A Ullto of Thll, • , of Thai; Not Mucb of Anything. The Lone Rock vicinity is going more Scandinavian according to the recent telephone directory issue because on account of I done some arithmaticing in the last year's directory and according to the new directory there are 7 more Scandinavian tele- phoners on the Lone Rock phones than there were a year ago. 1 ^.on't know how many of those listed are Danes along with me but I do know that here are ejght of them who surely know "Forgangen Nat Vor Sultne Kat; and they are Bernard, Ernest Tena, J. H., Ted, Roy, Roge and Russell, Jensen. The waj they spell Jensen settles that. Ir the Scandinavian listing I foun Roger Anderson; W. E. Brodei son, P. M., Ronald and Will Chris tenson, Don Erickson, Carl Han son, Fred, John, Laurence and Ole Johannesen, Claude and Lesli Johnson, Jim and Merton Larson Harold and Wm. Nelson, Tommy Nielsen and the Swanson bro- hers. Some of them may be Danes but. I've got 'em figured iccording to -the name spelling and they sure are Scandinavians and leading over 1st year's record, so to speak. But in checking their names I didn't find a single Cowan, Algona, Gets General Contract Work Contracts for the big new Lu- Verne school addition wore awarded Tuesday night, May 18, ;jy the school board. The contracts totaled about $212,000. A $275,000 bond issue was approved in January by the newly formed community school district. However, lively bidding on the new addition brought the contract amounts down, and it is thought that of the $275,000, there will be about $50,000 remaining for general repairs on the old school. H. J. Cowan, Algona contractor, was awarded the general contract for the new addition. There were 16 bidders in this division. The bid was $140,494. The plumbing contract went to Hanig Brothers of Humboldt and Fort Dodge. In this division there were 11 bidders. The bid was $47,070. Thirteen bids were received for the electrical work, the contract going to Bob Snyder of Spencer. The bid was $15,400. Last year the LuVerne school ~~°— district consolidated 60 sections There are 284 telephone talkers, O f i an <i, and with this additional ccording to the directory, in the territory there will be a big in- eighborhood.

Yes, it was .fun arithmaticing the "Lone Rock directory and I still claim it's a dandy good town and neighborhood and the folks up there have always been nice to me and friendly and I like 'em. Tom Purdy, of Purdy Station, N. Y., was attending to business matters here last week and he told me "that he felt so out of place here because of the facial decorations by way of mustache, sideburns and beard, and if he was to stay over much longer he Registered Jeaefer - Amer/can Gem Society 9 ALGONA, IOWA intended to show that, he, too, could grow a ,cro.]j. of good looking hair on' his visage. •- He sure got ft kick Out of the centennial whisker growing. -Tom is well known here and has a large ownership of Kossuth county farms,, so to speak. And he took home with him the centennial headgear and two scarfs. THE CAR OF TOMORROW M. HERE TODAY FOR 94R9 LiU .72 "88" 2-Door Sedan delivered locally; itat* and local laxei *xlra.

Somewhat different from the usual school election where a total vote of less than 100 is the cast. Yes, I voted, too, because on account of I like to vote. There was only one ballot and it was neither republican or democrat so I voted independently this time--usually and always democratic ordinarily. And I got a kick out of the clerk who asked one of our bewhiskered young gents "I ought to know you but that beard has me puzzled. Ana I am told that such occurrence happened several times during the afternoon, the clerks knew the voter but his hiding behind the whiskers sort of mystified the clerks, so to speak. My car lakes a Jire thai is marked 640-15. And so I measured the number of inches the tire- takes on when it turns over just once, and that was 83 inches. So I done some arithmaticing—the mile of 5,280 feet means a total of 63,360 inches and so my tire and wheel turn 787 times driving a mile. That means a drive to St Joe, ten miles, that my wheels turn over 7,870 times covering that 633,600 inches of paving, so to speak. And driving to Des Moines and back your tire turns over 220,360 times. My car meter registers I've driven it 14200 miles which means that the tires and wheels on my bus have each urned over 11,175,400 times And ust think of the gent who has a ire on his bus covering 35,000 miles, that means turns of,27,54o,- 000 times, and covering 2,217,600 000 inches of travel, so to speak. And think of all the gas that s been consumed in this tire tuning and mileage.
