f ./ 6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines ,-'.---.,.-.- i Thursday, March 10, 1953 fct CKS18 HEESS A Win* el Hilt, • titti* * af Tfcilt M6i Much ol It was one day last week iha I met up with the 1954 report o the 'Kossuth Soil Conservatio District ahd it was iriteresting anc I" decided to do a bit of arith maticing. I counted 331 farme names in the listing in the dif fereril townships of the county all of. them coopefators in th Kossuth County Soil Conservation District. And I wondered how many, Danes, like me, there migh be found cooperators. Arid I checked the list and judg ing by the spelling of their name I found the following: Charles Soifensen, yes he's i Dane, Could one to mate] • his name. In,line with him there' J. C; Skow, He too's a Dane anc that I know, And yes, anothe Dane I know, He's listed too Joseph A. Skow. Two Larsens yes, I think are Dane Because they Dane-like spell their name In Buffalo Vernon L. lives While Harrison Henry M. gives. Anc Seneca may brag of Dane, Alfrec C. Nieslen is his name. "Tis saic of Swea that it's Swede, This . Maynard Jensen does not heed And Wesley.I know is not Dane Theron C. Han^eri says the same So Conservation list has names Which indicate that there are Danes Who.fully'will cooperate To soil conserve within our state, And am I proud and tickled that I'm a Dane along with the gents mentioned above, so to speak. And then, too, 1 noted a lot of names which had a similarity from a rhyme standpoint and I done some arithmaticing with them and this resulted: In LuVerne is Frederick Will While Cresco offers Alfred Grill. I find Harrison has "Tice Brack And from Irvington comes Paul Black. Not Dane, but Sprijig- field has Chas. Reese, While Seneca brings Lewis A. Breese. And then from Garfield comes Fred Traub With Union matching Homer Dodd. Yes, Harrison has Vernon Burt, With Grant lining up Orval Work. In Plum Creek's found Stanley Gardner As Harrison brings George Harner. In Riverdale there's George Bormann While Cresco brings us Ralph Morgan. • LuVerne has one C. W. Housewirth, From Cresco cpmes W. H. Bosworth. \Tn Prairie there's F. A. Hanson And Fenton lines up Bahne Bahnsori. In Swea a Swede Glenn Olson While Eagle has Merton Roalson. Irvington brings Gerald Frankl, Whittemore Walter-'J.-Fandel. -- In-Grant township lives Hubert Brones While in Ledyard we find Wayne Jones. And Cresco township has John Deim Lining up as well James Devine. LuVerne shows F. C. Fritzmeier And Whittemore has Alfred Meyer. LuVerne has one Geo. F. Grimsehl And Wesley brings W. J. Frimml. And then I done some ariih- maticing as to the number of cooperators in the various townships and this I found: LuVerne led with 34, Irvington had 20, Cresco had 19, Whittemore had 19, Prairie had 18, , Seneca had 18, Ledyard had 17, Buffalo had 18, Plum Creek had 17, Union had 12, Garfield had 12, Eagle had 14, Lolls Creek had 12, Hebron had 11, and the rest of them had from 10 on down to 4. guff ice to say that all of, the cooperators are doing a good job by way of soil conservation in the biggest county in Iowa, so to speak. —o— Well, here it is, Ihe 7th of March and winter is still with us almost 100 per cent. I don't know what it's all about but it si-ems like- winter time, winter weather, winter snow, winter ice, and all the rest of winter is moving up in the calendar and February and March scum to be Ihe real winter months of December and January. It seems that \vc didn't have any winter at all until the last week in February, December and January gave us nice Call weather. Of there was a big saving^ in fuel bills, so to speak, but we're .sure. making up for that now. I just hope that there will be a thaw bel'oie the 1st of April and maybe the farmers can get into the fields before June 1st. In the old clays, many years ago, when our family lived on a farm I remember that we kids started lield work by the 1st of March, but that ain't the way the weather man is doing to us now-a-days, so to speak.
