The Wildest Trader in Town Once every month the Iowa State Bank issues "Iowa State Bank News" and I tip my hat to the issue becaus^on account of it surely keeps fine step with my "Ravings" and that's something the banker boys may well be proud of, so to speak. Harold Gilmore, Al Agena, Roy McMahon and Ed GiJmore sign the scrib- blings and so I know the reason for the Ravings being good. In fact the writings are so clever and readable that when I take a vacation I'll have the boys take over my "Ravings" and the UDM readers will sure get a big kick out of the column that week. I do know this that each one of those gents is tops in spelling and tops in grammer and tops in "Ravings" thoughts, etc. No, none of those gents are Danes but they well could be judging • from the cleverness of their "Rav- I ings" writing ability, so to speak. Today is the 15th of September and that, according to law, is the "take off" day of straw hats. It's against the law to wear a straw hat later than the 15th of Sept. And now we dig up the hat or cap which has ear-laps, etc., to meet up with the winter and zero breezes. 1 am appointing a committee to take over the checking of observation of straw head gear removal and the chairman is Bill Barry, Jr., and Leo Immerfall, Chris Wallukait, Dick Sorensen, Joel M. Herbst, Ted Chrischilles, Fred Kent, Jr., Werner Struecker, Fred Shilts and A. J. Ricklefs will serve on the committee. It will be their job to report to me where a gent still wears his. straw headgear after September 15 and I'll report it to the press and maybe we can put his name and picture in a newspaper so everybody will know he violated the straw hat wearing law, so to speak. Yep, remember gents, today, September 15, is straw hat take off day and so why not take it off and store it away for next year's May 15th which is the lawful straw hat wearing opening day, so to speak. —o— No, I'm not a candidate for the office of mayor, though I admit were I a candidate and were I elected I'd sure attend to some regulations covering car parking in the loop. We do have some drivers who just don't seem to give a hang how they park their car, often taking up two parkjrfg spaces, so to speak. And there is no excuse for any driver to park so carelessly. Even with the right and proper parking the spaces in the loop at times are plenty scarce and it sure isn't fair to park and take up two j spaces. Of course this careless ' parking doesn't apply in parking spaces covered by meters, although at times some drivers pull in at an angle which narrows the parking space for the next driver. But some time when you haven't anything else to do just take a drive back and forth on the streets in the loop and you'll see how some drivers take up space in parking, so to speak. There is no law or regulation which covers that sort of parking, but sometimes I think it would be smart if there was and so the careless parker would have to dig up for his parking space violation, so to speak. And it won't be long now until you'll have to take care of that engine you have in your bus by adding liquids in the radiator which keep zero condition away from the water and holds oft freezing conditions of the water. Maybe your cur is taken care of through the entire year by holding a certain liquid which helps cool in the hot weather and holds off freezing in the colder weather. I am reminded of the time years 1 ago when I had my first car. Yes, it was a model T and the tops in speed was about 35 miles per hour. But that was fast for those days because on account of there A'ere only one kind of road and that was mud, mostly. In tht cold months there was alcohol •idded to_ the water to keep oil freezing and that was expensive, 'oo. And every few weeks there A'as added a pint of alcohol to the radiator content to keep the antifreeze temperature up enough. Yes, those were the days. No, there was no speeding, no racing, ind mileage per hour rarely exceeded 35 or 40. The power ot the motor hadn't reached the heights of today and the condi- ifon of the highways were plenty I'ouuh and bumpy. Yes, it ib quite a number of years sinc^ those were the auto problems And, anyway, there is no comparison when the short car and the narrow tires were our modes- of auto traffic, so to speak. But those of us who had cars sure had a lot of fun speeding at 30 per hour, changing tires and holding up under a tree or in the car shed when it rained. And those were times when a gallon of gas only cost 9 and 10 cents. Oh brother, what auto traffic times they were, so to speak. • WESLEY By Mrs. Viola Studef Mr and Mrs Clarence Eisenbrand of Titonka called at the Richter home, Sept. 4.
