§~A!gOtta (la.) Upper Pe» Motn»s Thursday, April 21, 1955 • G61 a new telephone book this weeft'and I got a big kick out of doing some arithmaticing in the ATTENTION GARDENERS Our Biggest Stock! of Top Quality Bulbs Just Arrived! Canna Threb'Colors 7 for $1.00 Dahlias Four Colors 4for98c Gladioli;' Four Colors Doz. 59c Tuber Roses 7 for $1.00 Amaryllis * 3 for $1.00 Regal Lilies 4 for 98c 2-Year Stock Climber Roses Special 89c 9HHB^ffilfiMwflHnKCR9IBffl^n9 A Special Selection of Shrubs Lilacs, Hydrangeas, Honey Suckle, Spirea and Quince each 98c book as to long names and short names and Dane names and Irish names and so forth. I was always Under the impression that this heck of the woods was somewhat Scandihoovian but I find according to the phone book hstr ings that we Scandihoovians are Hot so numerous. I checked the names I thought to be Scandinavian and there were only 97 of them and of Which 33 were Danes, so to speak., There were ten Anderson names, five Ericksons, five Hansons, 16 Johnsons, five -Larsons, 11 Nelsons, six Petersons, all spelled to indicate they were Scandinavians, Norwegian or Swedish. And then I counted the Scandinavian names which were Danish, likewise with me, so to speak. . —o— And here ihey are and 1 hope they are all familiar with the good old Dane song "Forgangen Nat Vor Sultne Kat." Andrew M. Hanseh, Cart Hansen, Ed Hansen, Erhil Hansen, Erman H. Hansen, Forrest C. Hansen, P. W. Hansen, Wade Hansen, Charles Hansen, Charlie Hansen, Christian Jensen, Duane E. Jensen, H. E. Jensen, Vernon E. Jensen, W. L. (Pat) Jensen, C. M. Knudsen, Jens Knudsen, Robert Knudsen, Jewel M. Larsen, Arthur A- Olsen, George H. Olsen, Darrell F. Petersen, Dick Sorensen, Clayton R. Sorensen, Leslie Sorensen, Chris Reese and Chris Wallukait. Now I'm taking it from the way the names are spelled that these gents are Danes and here's hoping they are as 'proud of being Dansk as I am. I fbund listed in the book only five eiven names which were as rrnne," "Ch'ris," and they were Chris Alt, Chris J. Long, Chris J. Miller; Chris Reese and Chris Wallukait. So it may be that my name of Chris isn't as popular as some others, take the.- name of John, for instance. I checked and found that John led all the given names out of the several thousand given names listed. And ihere are 14 of the shortest pames listed in the book and they are names of three letters, Harry Alt, Melvin Alt, Chris Alt, Donald M. Asa, Fred Asa, J. B. Asa, Melvin Bay, Mrs J. M. Cox, Wm. C. Dau, Wm.'F. Dau, Jr., George Lee, Thomas Leroy Lee, O. W. Ott and James E. Utt. Of course there's an advantage in having three- letter names because on account of just look at the lead and ink they save when they sign their names, whether on check or legal scripture, so to speak. There are many, many names counting 10, II and 12 letters but for long names Harold Kuchenreuther seems to lead in the book with a name of 13 letters and just think of Harold's pen and pencil usage, so to rj-ts-k. ~ And I found the name of Harvey N. Peck but there was no name of Bushel. And there were listed T2 T Walker names but not a single Runner name. There was one name, Mack Wise, but there was no Dumb name. There were two, names of Young, but I didn't find a single, here were six names listed spell- d Long, but I couldn't find a ingle Short. And listed were Gene Hood' and W. J. Hood but lere was not any names of either Hat or Cap. There was Jess Hill sted but he has no opposition jecause on account of there was ot any Valley listed. I'm not ure just how all Irish names are pelled but I've been told; that usually where an Me precedes a name they are Irish. I sure ouldn't say but if all the names isted with a preceding flfc are rish then that nationality is well ined up because on account of there are 61 names listed with preceding Me. I am personally acquainted with many of them and I do know this, that they are not all Irish. It was really fun this arith maticing of the over 2,000 names in the new telephone book. Anc 1 checked several pages as to the number of letters in a name anc all indications are that names o live and six letters top the list For instance with 137 names lisle; STRICTLY BUS!NESS, ty Bartlett was elected to attend short course- and David Stewart and Andrew Harms to attend dis* tflct camp.

Slagway'* trouble is no get-up-and-gol" under "W" there were 50 of them of six letters or almost a third. And when you stop to think of it there surely must be a busy bunch of operators on that switchboard, so to speak. With over 2,000 names and numbers and usually you use the phone at least two or three times a day (and of course business firms do much more) that would mean the calls would run well into the 40, 50, 60 thousands every day and that's going some. Yep, our telephone talking is a major proposition every day and I got to give it -to the local office—they are doing a good job hooking you up^with the party you so to speak.' want to talk to, Bleeding Hearts and St. Joe C.D.A.
