That first load of potatoes that Aank-Vera bought bechance put «» storeTnto the potato busine*, and it is a specialty that has grpwn ever ^ce. The Veras get their potatoes, in truck-load lots, direct from the .potato fields ^ the X River Valley and other potatoe-growing areas They^ make several tnp each year to the big potato pits, to examine the quality of theJ="*^ £JJ£^ ^ orders for potatoes lo be shipped to Algona. Though potatoes are available t'mes at life store, there are certain seasons of the year wbjJ,*-T the spuds' at East End, and it is then that folks come from all over to by the bag-full. * Farmers from this area place orders for as high as 15 bags, and local townspeople in growing numbers look at East End as potato headquarters. Frank Vera owned the store for a good many years, before actively taking it over anToverseeing its operation in 1939. Among those who operaled .IJunng , those early years were Tom Akre. the late Forrest Driver and h« wife and Vto. Louis Lynk. Frank bought the old Northwestern hotel building, which >» later** tensivelyVemodeled. and at the time set up a grocery handling items ^e bread, milk etc Later the Deep Rock oil station which was on the comer was moved to ^ present sS. and was converted into a grocery store. With a number of enlargements and remodelings, it is this building that serves at present. Ted. who now operates the store, says that from his high school days he remembers one of his main jobs was helping lo unload potatoes, and he claims he knows a potato like he knows the back of his hand.; And, now with Ihe Kossuth Centennial celebration coming to a close today, Ihe Easl End Grocery has become famous for another reason . . . a pony, i.nous- , ands of kids-(under 13) have come to the little grocery;to register fa the Shetian* pony which will be given away absolutely free lo the lucky winner whose name will be drawn this afternoon by Mayor Linda Clapsaddle and announced at the fairgrounds tonight. Every kid yearns for a pony, and Ted knows if. When hesud- denly became a part owner with Corwin Peer in this pony, Ted wanted to figure out something to do with it. And giving it away to some youngster was Teds idea of a pleasant thrill. I JOHN DEERE The Quality Name In Farm iquip'menl" . Williams & Taylor Implement Co. New Location — Diagonal .
