ft-Algona (la.) Uppe> Da* Mdlftii thursday, August 4, 1955 Atn«« ei -nti, « tttat o< tb*i> N«i Hurt e< At this writing we ate exper fencing the hottest heat situation that anyone can ever remembe of in many, many years and it' getting darned tiresome, too. Yes I like heat along in the winte • months but hea,t this time of th year is a tiresome nuisance, so t speak., Not satisfied with tern peratures in the 90s the weather man is pushing the thermomete Up into the 100s. Why, at Sai City, Iowa, last Sunday tin Weatherman shot the heat up t< 109 degrees and this was the high est point reached in the whole United States, according to re cords. No, there is, no,fun what soever feeing loaded with thosi high temperatures. And the hea is wearing on people, too. Talk aboiit_ sweat — guess we're al sweating, and when sweat comes out from your hide that means your bones.and your flesh' are put to work ^emitting the heat pellets so to speak', and so you suffer And the past week's heat is costing us money, too, because on account of. look at the electric juices we're using to operate inns. Nope, I don't like this heat wave and the sooner it gets out of here the happier I'll be. How about you? . •.' —o— Algona has been visited the past several weeks by many large arboreal orthopterous insects of the Locustidae family and folks have been;called to their screen doors of an evening to do as much annihilating as possible because 'of the nuisance the insects are. Yep, I'm talking about katydids and they seem to have been quite numerous the past hot weather week, so to speak. The katydid is of the grasshopper family and at times they're 'inclined to get- noisy, especially in the evening, and for some reason or other they always seem .to gather near our screen doors and so the noise is a nuisance. And that is what the lousy excessive heat is responsible for. And the 100s in .the shade that we've been enjoying(?) the • past week and which seem to intend to continue for another week or two is sure getting folks down, so to speak. Just look at all the perspiration these heat waves are producing. I would like to do some arithmaticing anent the amount of liquid perspiration the heat is bringing out of my system in a day. In fact I am wondering if the drops of sweat my hide issues would be'enough to fill a cup. It's sure that this heat • session we're having is a lousy nuisance, so to speak. _o— And it was Sunday afternoon that I happened • by the city swimming pool and was it ever a busy place? There were hundreds of youngsters and teen-agers busy in the water and so I asked the office about' how many persons were taking a bath in the pool? And the lady checked her tickets and told me that there were 410 permits issued, and she was sure that within another hour there would be another hundred. This was about 3 o'clock. And as hot I as it was I was almost inclined to take on a swim, much as I don't like baths, so to speak. Yep, the city swimming pool has been a plenty busy place the past heateo week. —o— I take my hal off to the streets department of our city for the peachy and splendid job th;it is being done by new curb r.nd gutter installation. A swell job the boys have taken on and especially are street intersections now swell to travel because of the curve of the curb, so to speak. And another thing, new stop signs have- been installed at intersections throughout the c-ity and they are really a nice job and almost makes it a pleasure to stop the bus. More power to the streut department of Algona, they have sure done a swell job. II was Hay Beamish dropped into the back print shop of the UDM the oilier day just when we were haying our afternoon coffee gulping session and he was invited to take on a cup with us and I am sure proud oC him being a member of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpeis because on account of Ray knows his Java and how to gulp it, so to speak. And I am told thai Ray recently took on a fishing spree at Woman's Lake, Minn., and that he pulled in a muskie of length and si/e extraordinary And I can believe that he did the trick because on account of he ha* the build and muscle to hook and bring in the big ones. .—o— Here's hoping ihai Ihe lousy weatherman will give up his heat manufacturing and that wu can have some decent weather a no. some nights that are of temperature the sort that we can sleep normally again. And I'll bet you are as disgusted with the sweating us I am, so to speak.
