CHfttS REEH A tliiu ef fbU, • Lliil* o( tMi; ttei Mucfe at An*iblaff. Have you ever noliced how iiy traffic at times holds peculiar situations in points of traffic numbers'.' There are times when you drive and meet only perhaps a half dozen cars in a ten mile distance and then at other times the traffic takes i>n and car meeting and passing really goes places, so to speak. Fur instance, it was the other day thai I drove from Humbokll t'<. Alijonn. a distance of about 22 miles. And so to do some arith- malicinK I counted the cars Suing south which passed me and there were 90 cars passed me going south between Humboldt and St. Jnc a bit over ten miles. And then as 1 left St. .Joe I counted the southbound cars whiah parsed me and there were only 9, ye.-only !), cars passed me southward between St. Joe and Algona. Can you finure out the whs- and wherefore of the heavy traffic south of St. Joe and the light traffic south out of Algona? Can it be that the 00 southbound cars were on their way to Hum txildt to do their Saturday shopping? And can it lie that the !' cars cut iif Algona had finished 1Ii"ir Saturday shopping here? Sure proves peculiar and ama/.ing at- times how traffic comes and 'Jin-;, in bunches and in one direc- ' ion. And I sure love arithmalicing md I tuck nn some figurinu on he mam square in Algona Fri- i.iv evening. Dodge and Stale • tire's inter>ec'ion and the time i bit after K beiN. so to speak. I Mi'.nild h.-ivi. 1 harl a nuinboiinu IT .nltiin'4 niaci'.me but I c< flip number nf folks \vhn the streets, State aVid Dod-e, north and south, east and west, crossings. I only used five minutes in which to do the counting because on account of the numbers were going to.) fast, so to speak. In that five minutes I counted 90 people crossing State north and 82 crossing Slate south intersection and 60 people crjss- ing Dodge north and 85 crossing Dodge south, a total of ,317 ami if that could be figured continuous that would mean (hat 3,80-1 persons crossed the street at this intersection four ways in all hour. And it might be that so could be because on account of there sure were a lot of folks in town and up and down the length of State street's business section Yep. T get a kick out of arith- maticing and I was asked by dozens could I count far and fast enough to get the total numbers, so to speak. It was one evening last week that I heard two Algona housewives talking about the fruit canning season being about here and they really got a kick out of the discussion and they both sure knew what they were talking about. Said one: "Yes. I like to can and I can-can any of a 1 ' sorts of fruits or vegetables and they keep well in the cans in which I can them." And the other ladv stated: "True. I also love to can and the more I can the better I can can as time gees on." And the first lady said "To me to can is a pleasure', and I care not what I can so long as I can can." And 'he second lady *aid "To me to can as I can with what I have to can I sure g"t a kick out of -ealmg a can with the futuristic feeling and thought of how gond my canning was done." And it so happens that I know both of those fine housewives and I knew when they can they can of eats that are 100 percent canned, so to speak. —o— This hot, hoi weather and atmosphere and non-humidity and so forth and so on that we have been experiencing the pa.-t tw-> Thursday, July 28, 1955 Algeria (fa.) Upper De* Moine*-3 weeks has just, about got my goat, so In speak. Yes, I love hot things, coffee, dinners, etc., but I can't say thai I'm in love with this 90 degree stuff we've been sweating under the pas! week or two. Sure would be nice to experience.' it along in January, maybe. And a 90 degree day once or twice a week would sure be nice and lovable but when (hi 90s stick with us day in and flay out for weeks the heat rather becomes too sweaty ami tiresome. I have a son living in Ari/ona and the other day I gol a leltei from him and he said I hat the thermometer was almost husiini; out its top, the registering being I'M. Oh. brother, that would bn something and I'm not going 1o holler too much about the 90s weather, so long as it doesn't jump to the 100s. so (o speak However, weather is weather an^; we just have to get along with it as best we can. And it won't be too long now until we'll be getting the opposite, chill and chill, zero and below. So maybe we should just take things a.- they come, whether in the 90- or in the 30 below, .-o to speak. At any rate we can be happy that we live in Iowa. Although occasional heat and chill waves may bother us for a time, it is a swell place in which to breath* and sleep and vacation and work so to speak.
