*»* CHH1S BEE8B A ilHis of Thll, ft LlltU 6* Thai; ffdi Much of li was last week that, ihe UDM printed the .ballots for the 'election bh November 2nd- and there sure were a lot of the squares. And s'o I wondered as to how we Scandihopvians were represented in the different precincts and I found that in the county precincts we had a fair representation with 11 Danish, Norwegian or Swedish names. On the state ticket, there were only two Scandihooviah cahdidates and they were J. -E. Hansen, of Carrojl county, running for treasurer of state, and there is no question about, him, he's a Dane. Th,e other ene, Robert L. Larson, of Ipwa- City is a candidate for judge of the supreme court and he's a Swede. Of the ten Scandinavian candidates with squares on the county tickets Grant township leads with three names. There's'Wm. Christensen for' supervisor, Lars Skaar for trustee and R. I. Anderson for township clerk. In Portland township Glen Larson is a candidate for trustee and J. P. Peterson ' is. running for trustee in Eagle "township. The re is no doubt about Jens. M. Sorensen being a Dane and he's a candidate for- trustee in Union township. And in Seneca township another Dane, Chris Dahl, is put fpr the clerk job. Over in Wesley township there's another Dane out for office, L. C. Hansen fpr clerk. . In Fenton township there .are two ScandihOovians, G. B. Jphnspn and P. M. Christensen, candidates for the trustee jpfa. And the ten names ballot listed are Scandinavian and it might be they are all Danes, I knpw that the names cpuld be, so to speak. I. noted that every township had candf- ,dates for the different offices extent Plum Creek township— -guess there aren't any politicians in that neighborhood. You will notice that I didn't mentipn the political leaning., of any of the candidates mentioned. They may be all republicans or all democrats, but none of them are independents. Yes, I'm a democrat; but I'll vote for a Dane first and always, so to speak. Well, it looks like we might/be getting some real fall weather, the November type, because' on account of we've had lousy weather the past several weeks. And in just the past fe\v days the leaves have be'gun to turn all sorts of colors and already my lawn has been covered,'with the btown leaves and that' means r»v job pf raking shortly and I don't like to rake. And just,think of the leaves that will fall, with over 12,000 trees in Algona ana each tree . carrying 2,356,000 leaves. I am not going to do any arithmaticing aneht the ,leaf fall nor colors, but I'd like to see someone do some arithmaticing. I would suggest that Bill Reinders and Gene Schemel take on the job of arithmaticing the leaf situation and then Tim O'Brien and Art Odgaard should' be picked to arithmaticing of the leaves colors during the dropping period. It sure would be something it we could know the number of leaves which grow and the color of them when they drop because on account, of it would run into the billions, so to speak. —o— Those telephone girls in Des Moines are sure lovers, of coffee and they are joining up with the Amalgamated Association of Cof-fee qulpera to beat the band, Only a tfeek or two agpi 1 signed up 107 of the girls into' guipelf membership. And jusrthe other flay I received another list of applicants for. member* ship, 81,' and so today thefg are now 188 of the telephone girls in Des Moines nolding members'Hip' cards in 'the gulpers. -The second bunch has organized the Des Molhes Hello Girl Gulpdr Club and 'the 1 president is Mrs Irene J. Duffy ftnct the vide president is Ruth H. Alsdorf. 'Merna L.'Jaquis was elected secretary and Mrs Wilma Kim- ier treasurer. The board of directors' consists of Mayme E. Frair, Barbara A>; Cralli Beverly A. Coughiki, Mrs Grace Campbell and Mrs Margaret Clayton. If i understand correctly there are several telephone offices in the city and . tne operator number runs near the 3UO mark. So 1 wouldn't be surprised if the resv of the operator coffee lovers "will also sign up memberships in the coffee gulpers, so tp speak. The 2Blh of September wan Gold Star Mothers Day and I am told, that locally there are JJO Gold Star Mothers and the American Legion Auxiliary presented each of them with a tfei-, low" Mum Corsage for the day. it so Happened that me and my Stoody made the distributions on Saturday preceding and I really found it a job.
