4~Al06rtt» (la.) Upper Des Maine* Thursday, August 25, 1955 CHRIS HEEBE A latll* oi tblt, a tUtU at Thai/ Hoi Much of Anything. I sure love to do ariihrnaticiny and it was one,day last week that I was at Burt and having a visit with J. L. Miller, manager of the new big elevator recently erected at Burt,by the Burt Cooperative Elevator Company. And here was an opportunity to do some arithmaticing as to how- many kernels of corn could be stored in that huge building, And so it was that I had some help in doing all of this figuring because on ^account of with a storage capacity of 250,000 bushels thai meant a lot of individual kernels. Sure I had a lot of help in making the arithmaticing because on account of 250,000 bushels of shelled corn sure represent a big number of kernels, so to speak. First of all Manager Miller and myself counted the number of corn kernels which would fill a cup and we found that number to be 700. Then Wm. Madsen, Jr., and I counted the number of cups of Kernels it took to fill a bushel and that was a total of 137 cups. And so John Hassie and I figured up the number of kernels it. took to fill a bushel and that number was 95,500. —o— II was then that we really started counting and checking the number of kernels 'in 250,000 bushels and in this we divided up the numbers to be counted between George Becker : and Dale Lockwood to count the first 62,500 bushels and then Roger Chaffee and F.

Mrs Doughan is the former Betty Becker, daughter of Mr and Mrs Thomas Becker, and Roger is the son of Vincent Doughan. They were married Aug. 2 at 9 a. m. in St. Joseph's Catholic church. Rev. Luke Becker of Springfield, Mo., officiated at the double-ring ceremony. The bride was given in marriage by her father. She wore a gown of lace and tulle over satin, with a fitted bodice, sweetheart neckline and long sleeves that tapered to a point over the wrists. The full skirt extended into a short train and her -fingertip veil fell from a tiara of sequins and pearls. She wore a double strand of pearls and earrings, gifts from the bridegroom, and carried- a bouquet of pink roses. Nancy Doughan, sister of the bridegroom, served as maid of honor, Jean and Joan Becker, twin cousins of the bride, were bridesmaids, Phil Ballard was bestmau, Tommy Forburger and Bernard Becker were groomsmen, ushers were Donald Becker and Richard Doughan and acolytes were Steven Doughan, Billy Kunz and Jimmy Walker. Mrs Tom Forburger served the wedding breakfast, and 100 guests attended the wedding dinner at the Johnson House in Algona. The reception was held at the Tom Becker home. Mrs Ernest Kramer was in charge of the guest book, and Julia Raney and Gladys Slaughter opened the gifts. A wedding dance was held in the ballroom at Duncan that evening. Mr and Mrs Doughan both graduated from Wesley high school. Mrs Doughan has been employed at Algona Produce and the bridegroom is employed at the Bowen Food Market at Clarion, V£her<rthe.young couple is now living.—(Photo by Nels..Isaaqgpn). second 62,500 and then Paul Webber and Rusell Patterson the third 62,500 and Walter Campney and Dean Andrews to count thu fourth 62,500 and there we had the total number of 250,000 bushels, so to speak. It was then that T. E. Lagerstron and A. J. Ditmer counted the Kernels in cups in the first 62,500 bushels and this was a total of 8,560,500 because on account of there are 137 cups in a bushel. And Frank and Harold Becker found the same total of kernels in the second 62,500 bushels and Herman Bachut and K. J. Smith found ;i like total in the third 62,500 bushels as did also Howard McMul- ien and F. E. Tqoter in the fourth 62,500 bushels and so a total of 23,975,000,000 kernels ot corn make up the total when thu elevator storage is filled up with 250,000 bushels, so to speak. \\:-i, it was fun to do the arilhmatic- ing and (he Burt gents who did the counting turned over a good job. And it was one day last week that there was held a sort of general inspection day in Hurt for folks to have a look at the monstrous new building and' which- suri' is a credit to the Rui!. rum- munity. And folks from tar near came to have a look at the elevator and there was si rved pop and lemonade and cookie.; in the visitors and over 800 buttle., of pop popped their way inio folks and over 60 gallon.-: of ic M- ontde were served to qu;-n--ii thirsts and 9-40 cuokies were pa.-.-ed out to visitors and the day proved a really enjoyable one t>.- the hundreds upon hundred.-, of visitors. Ye.-, J was one ol the visitors and my signature m the registration numbered 4 1 J!J and that was early in the afternoon And I extend heartiest congratulations to tin; people ol Hull and vicinity becau.-.e of tin.- addition ol this splendid building, oo to speak. —o— Yes, I admit I'm getting plenty tired of the ci.'iHmucd hot weather we've been enjoying ('.') tlr.- past several months. In fact tn my memory it's (lie hottest >um- nu r wv've bad in the pa.-t 70 or (JO years and it's a nuisance Iroiri every standpoint. I don't mind a hot day or a hot wec;< ]} thru we could have a few drops i,f rain or it (hi- ni'jlit.- 1 wouid Mut ot cool off a bit. But the heat ha., raised the die-kens witn my niuhl snoring a.-, well a.-: it is laising the ditkeiii with liie coin crop. It Jiiay be that we .sutler UK- more Iroin the heat because on account ol there is not the least inlcrmittance for ruin. There is one thing that the heat is responsible lor that 1 can agree wit!. and that is the fact that my lawn has so dried up and dt-UTioraicd that I don't have to gel out I!,-.mower. And I agicc that i don'l like to shove Ihc IIHJWI.Y i.-v. r the lawn at no time, but tin.- tiim.- I'd be tickled to iji it. Oh, ii v.v only eniiki iiavv a. bit of v.-o' wculhcr. Tlify'j-L- JiavJJiij H Jn many parts of Iowa but Kossuth sure is taking a beating from the dry standpoint, so to speak. —o— Yes, I took in the fair and I got to give it to the fair boys, they sure put on a good fair this year, as they have been doing in the past. And that's one thing the people in the biggest county in the state may well have a right •to brag about, so to speak.

She told' me about the girl who sits in front of her ... the girl with the yellow curls . . . and the boy across the aisle who makes funny faces. She told me about her teacher, who has eyes in the. back of her head . . .'and about the trees in the school yard . . . and about the big girl who doesn't believe in Santa Claus; We talked about a lot of things —; tremendously vital, unimportant things—and then we studied spelling, reading and arithmetic and then to bed. ' "She's upstairs now . . . sound asleep, with "Pricess Elizabeth" (that's her doll) cuddled in her right arm. You guys wouldn't .hurt her, would you? You see, I'm* her Daddy. 'When he"r doll is broken or her finger is cut, or her head gets bumped, I can fix it ... but when she starts to school, when she walks across the street, then she's in your hands. She's a sweet little girl and I'm so proud, of her. She can run like a deeX^nd 1 darts about like a chipmunk,. She likes* io ride an,d .swim and hike with me on Sunday afternoons. But I can't be.with her all the time ... I.have io work to pay for her clothes and education. So please help me look out for her. Please drive carefully, please drive slowly past the 'schools and intersections . . . and please remember thai children do run from behind-parked cars.
