Pig Right At Home, But Not For Very Long In pasi years, many things have emerged from ihe city dump, ranging from pungent odors io rats, but the pig thai galloped forth last Tuesday was a complete surprise. Many passersby saw the small black pig, snorting and stomping back and forth across highway 169 at the site of the new bridge, but capture seemed irrwossible. The pig finally ran in*o a thicket, where a young Algona farmer, Don Johnson pounced on it. For the present, the pig is living at ihe Mildred Johnson farm, across from Frank & Em's.

Among the children enrolled Where There's Smoke, There's Fire False The tranquility of falling rain '•ya.s disturbed by the scream of ti'c truck sirens about 4 a.m. Tuesday, as a fire was reported at the home of Mrs O. E. Hotl. 415 N. Church street. It was a cast' of "all that smoke but no fire." according to Fire Chief Ira Kohl. The insulation on basement wiring was smoking, probably caused by lightning. If any damage was done (none was imported) it must be attributed to the smoke which was so thick. M.-puits Kohl, that the firemen had '-" adorn masks to enter the basement.

Games Sunday will find Lone Rock at Rmg.--ted; Rodman at Gilmore City. Whittemore at Bancroft: and Livernvire at Algona KC>. We Would Have No Occasion To Open Our Front Door here at Brandt Buick if it weren't for the fact that a constant stream of interested people have been walking in and driving in at our place of business over past weeks. We like to think that this hustle and bustle that we have enjoyed has been caused in part by the friendly kind of service we have been trying to give. We have been trying to serve you as efficiently as we know how, and have been doing it with a smile here at Brandt Buick. Also, a good many of those beautiful new 1955 Buicks you've been seeing are "Brandt Buicks", placed in the hands of proud Visitor Here To Spend Month On Local Farm By Don Cook In 1946, 4-H clubs hit on the idea of giving overseas people a chance to witness the way farming, and just plain living H done in the Umttd States! This was the beginning of the International Farm Youth Exchange program, which every i y e a r sends some American youths to fore:gn lands, and brings foreign farm boys to the United States. This year The I.F.Y.E. brought 125 guests to our shores, and among them was John Ramsay. 22-year-old youth from New Zealand, who is now spending a month on the D. C. Gardner fa: in north of Algona. owners by us. We've been enjoying this busy work . .. and in addition to selling new Buicks and good used cars, our shop has been attracting quite a lot of work lately, too. Our lube section has be«n on the ball, giving out our famous "Lubricaire" grease work. Here at Brandt Buick, too, we've had the pleasure of turning out a nice lot of top body work, with all owners completely satisfied. Brandt Buick cordially invites you to join its happy family of satisfied customers. If you yearn for service with a smile, here U one place where you'll receive just that! "Whew, Hit's 'Of I found John putting up silage on the Troutman farm, a few miles north of the Gardners. "Whew, hit's "ot." were his first words. Being an Alec Guiness ;;.n I sat down for what I knew would be a very enjoyable talk. I was not to be disappointed. I Tile first point John cleared up was that of explaining exactly \v;;y he was over here. He P"inted out that '.lie I.F.Y.E. program is a good will mission rather than a technical one. His main interest is to learn about the American people, their customs and ideas, rather than their meuthod of farming, and at the same time, teil Americans a little about New Zealand. Iowa Surprises He is enjoying his trip here vfcry much, and Iowa has been a special treat for him. as the hills and greenness both surprised him and reminded him of his home. On his trip troin the west coast, John saw little "but rock and sand." He stated that since he had always thought of Iowa as being a member of the U.S. great plains area, ha was very surprised to Iiiui that it was so hilly . He was quite interested in the customs of America, and remarked he was amazed to hear how young some giils are when they get married. "Because most of the New Zealand high schools are noe coeducational, you rare- I ly hear of a girl being engaged > until she has been graduated foj i some time," he said. The site j of my class ring brought a ; smile to his face, as men do not wear jewelry of any kind in New Zealand . A custom of Americans that John has to suffer for is our 3 meaJ-a-day habit. In New Zealand, a 7-meal day is a must, and John finds himself getting hungry long before the bell rings. Talk Troubles It was about this time that I remarked that I w»s having a little trouble catching some of lis phrases through his accent. -Ie replied by telling me of an ncident while he was staying n New Hampton, Iowa. The 'armer he was staying with sent him to the neighbors or a couple bales of hay. He <nocked on the door and in- ormed the neighbor that he had come for a couple "bile ah hie." •Ml hopes for communication ended tight there, until John «a\v a pick-up truck in the driveway. He went over and ,^pe!U\l >ut the word "hay" on the dusty fender, and the mission was soon carried out. While speaking of New Zealand, he pointed out that most farming techniques of lown farmers would be of little value to the hilly country across the sea. New Zealand farming is primarily of the pasture type. They have over 32,000^)00 head of sheep, or 17 sheep" for eaclt New Zealander. He put in ths claim that New Zealand possesses more beef and dairy cattle than Iowa. He said that there is no 4-H movement in New Zealand, as we know it here, but projects in rearing dairy cattle are offered in the grade schools. Good Fishing "For any fishermen who want to travel", John says, "don't overlook New Zealand." He went on, telling about a 5-day fishing trip that four men made to a New Zealand lake, during which they caught t>3 rainbow trout, that averaged 0 pounds in weight. According lo New Zealand law, any trout 13 inches or less must be thrown back into the lake. When it came time to take his picture, I was a little dubious, as I am of the "double exposure and slanting" type, but hickily, photography is one of John's hobbies. He is also very much interested in ham radio. After his stay in Algona, he will go to East Lansing. Mich, to meet three other New Zealand "I.F.Y.E."S" and then on to New York. He and his friends then plan to spend seven weeks in England and on the European continent. Following his trip, John will continue helping his father farm.

Mr and Mrs Lester Steward and son left Tuesday for their home in Phoenix, Arizona, after spending the past several weeks with the former's parents, the Walter Stewards. Mrs George Manns entertained a few friends at her home Tuesday honoring her mother, Mrs Bertha Mansmith, whose birthday anniversary was that day. Bobby Melville of Iowa City is visiting his grandparents, Mr and Mrs Fred Vogel, his father having brought him last week. Dr. and Mrs Melville are parents of a second daughter, Emily Jean, who was born May 18. Samuel Colt invented the revolver in 1835.
