The sun spreads heat,, 100 grand, And sunburn's felt on every hand With none of breeze to ease the hent Which burns one up from head to feet. Ed Cullen says no summer heat Brought none of sweat to both his feet, And Brail Wright said that heat of sun Just brought to him more summer fun. Bless Rusk said summer heat to him was fine, no bath, he took a swim, While I was told by Beecher Lane Each year he loved the heat again. Joe Bradley said that he first rate Can take the heat at 98, And too Ken Frankl said to me That he could take 103. And E. J. Hough admitted too That heat to him was not taboo. And I was told, too, by Gene Hood That summer heat to him was ;ood. So there you have it, summer heat, To many gents just an't be beat. True, summer has ts finer day When about 80 holds ts sway, And we enjoy the sun, he breeze, Much beter than midwinter sneeze. But just the same like it best When near to 80 it's at rest. .—o— Algona was one of six Iowa cities to win top honors in the all-Iowa traffic safety contest for 1953. And am I astounded, although tickled, because of the award. For this town has some 01 he best speeders driving cars today. No, not too many, but Dlenty. For instance since June 1, 953, til today I have 72 55—car numbers where the driver ran the red light. And I have 17 car numbers which hurried streetwise at 35 miles per hour, in the 25-mile zones. There are several streets in this town where speed limit seems disregarded by the Algona speed gents. One of them is South Minnesota, and East College is also a near race track at times. "And I am heartily in favor of a "crack-down" on speedy driving within the city limits'. And here is Iowa nearing the 300 mark of highway and traffic kills and if it continues we'l reach the near 600 mark in 1954 And too much' speed and toi many careless drivers is given a the reason for the killings. Re cently police chiefs, sheriffs anc members of safety council group throughout the state were queried jy the Associated Press and werr asked "Why is Iowa failing t< reduce its highway toll and wha can be done about it?" Answer 3y the officers covered the ques- Religious floats were an outstanding part of the Centennial parade, July 5, and an example of lhat is the Trimly Lutheran float pictured above. It emphasized the radio program, ihe Lutheran Hour, which brings Chtist io the nations.—(Upper Des Moines Newsfolo.) 6.90 SHOES Sizes 8 The Congregational church appropriately depicted the church's founder, Father Taylor, as the Patriarch of the Prairies, in the float pictured above. Pulling the float in the Kossuth Centennial parade July 5 was an old, old time, steam engine which puffed along in the parade as fast as it could, but not quite fast enough to keep in its position/ It did, however, make the end of the run before the parade was over .—(Upper Des Moines Newsfoio). ion through different angles but all truly reasonable. "People are driving faster and hitting each other .harder" came from a highway patrol sergeant. "No state road is built for 70-mile-an-hour- speeds" quoted a city police chief. 'A state speed law is a MUST" said a county safety council member. "A loose nut at the wheel is the chief cause of traffic fatalities," from a sheriff. "Iowa doesn't need a safety drive as much as she needs law enforcement and prosecution wh'ich results in more than a slapped wrist for traffic law violators," answered one sheriff. —o— One officer wrote "Our courts have been far too lenient on the violators. First offenders oi driving while intoxicated anc reckless drivers should be given the works the first time." Othei officers answering also insisted that there's need for more patrolmen and that Iowa's highway patrol force should be doubled 01 ^ Symphony of dancing carnations 1.77 Odd-Lot Ladies' SHOES 9 77 5ii«s4-9 *•• I .ripled. Others wrote that Iowa's aws should be amended so that a driver's license would be sus- Dended with every moving violation of traffic laws. And fines are not equitable because some can pay them easily while for others fines are a severe hardship —so suspend the license. It was generally agreed that the answers to the Associated Press survey gave good reasons for Iowa's continued high killings on traffic lanes, so to speak. What do you think? —o— It was ihe other day that I received a birthday present from Harry Godden and it was a nice wood pipe with a nice long stem and the drawing circulation in the stem is good because on account of I have smoked the pipe and now if someone would send me a couple of pounds of pips tobacco, how happy I'd be. But 1 got to give it to Harry, he sura knew just what kind of a pipe and stem would look best hanging from my mug, so to speak.
