(la.) Upper 6e» Mo!ne« Thursday, August 4, 19$$ favings oo RECftfc A LItll* of ThU. • LlltU ot Th«l; IfoJ Much of Al Ihis writing we are experiencing the hottest heat situation that anyone can ever remember of in many, many years and it's getting darned tiresome, too. Yes, 1 like heat along in the wintor months but heat this time of the year is a tiresome nuisance, so U Fpeak. Not satisfied with temperatures in the 90s the weatherman is pushing the thermometer up into the 100s. Why at Sac City. Iowa, last Sunday the weatherman shot the heat up to 109 degrees and this was the highest point reached in (lie whole United States, according to records. No, there is no fun whatsoever being loaded with those high temperatures. And the heat is wearing on people, too. Talk about sweat — guess we're alt 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 declnc juices we're using to operate i;;ns. Nope. I don't like this heat wave and the sooner it gets out of here the happier I'll be. How abuul you? —o— Algona has been visited Ihe 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 mueli annihilating as possible beerai of the nuisance the insects are. Yep. I'm talking about katy.lids and they seem to have been quite numerous the past hot weather week, so to speak. The katydid is of the grasshopper family ;md at times they're inclined to get noisy, especially in the evening, and for some reason or other Ihey 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 enjoyingf?) 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. « Texas Driver Enters County Fair Races .Tud Larson, Auslin.

May we send you our complete story? SUMMERS' PINE POINT Park Rapids, Minn. (21 tf) 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 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 hoatoa week. I take my hat off to the streets department of our city for the peachy and splendid job that i being done by new curb r.ri' 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 sign; have been installed at intersections throughout the city and they are really a nice job and almost makes it a pleasure to stop I the bus. More power to the street department of Algona, they have sure done a swell job. — o — It was Ray Beamish dropped into the back print shop <,{ the UDM the other day just when we were having nur aiu-i noun coffee gulping session and he was invited to take on a cup with and I am sure proud oj him be-in,; a member of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulper.s because on account of Ray knows his Java and how to yu!p it. ,-u to speak.
