WANT ADS BRING RESULTS .'. .What would YOU do it somebody gave you a Grand Champion baby beef—on the hoof? . That's the problem members 01 the Algona Lions Club, wrestler Tuesday noon luncheon -meeting—and ideas on how to convert 1,000 pounds of prime beef into money flew thick and fast. • , . • The blue ribbon animal, raised by James Bierstedt of Whittemore, and' bought at the Kossuth County Fair livestock auction by the Sto'rz Brewing Company of Omaha -for the record price of $830, was given-to the Lions with ,the stipulation .that one-half the proceeds from sale of the animal go to St. Ann hospital, and the other half go to help defray expenses of the club's annual Halloween, party. ...,..'.. Not ever haying had a bab> beef laid in their laps before, club members grappled with the problem at their 'meeting. Ted Chris- chilles, club president, outlined the scope of the problem, and then threw the discussion open. Someone suggested a "raffle", but Lou Nitchals stomped on that idea. Don Hemmingsen suggested selling it "live weight", but couldn't at the moment, come, up with the name of a hopeful customer. Bob LaBarre offered the thought of selling it to the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City, but that one laid an egg. Finally a committee was appointed—Herb Hedlund, Dave Smith, Leo Cassel, and Chrischilles—to decide what to do. After a long tussle, this group decided on a public auction of the beef—in pieces. The auction wil' be held Friday evening, Sept. 2, on downtown State street in Algona, with everybody from miles around invited to attend and bid for filet mignon, sirloin, round roasts, quarters, even hamburger. The proceeds will be divided equally between St. Ann and the Lions Halloween party Meanwhile, all unknowing, (lie champion animal .is being eared for and kept in condition at the sale barn by Dale Yungeberg, who will cry the auction. Goecke Lockers will do the butchering. Lions members will at the proper lime tote the choice beef packages to the auction site. And the public, they hope,' will do the rest. The local Lions say it was a wonderful gift, and they are greatly appreciative. A little like getting "hold of a bull by the tail* ! jj,BylMrlfvictor Fitch ! J .Lm . .. U i —^.. ^. ^^ ...jJJ.
