And there were many other gent citizens who took on the felt hat in observance of felt hat season opening. Milt Norton told me lhat to him there just wasn't anything so perfect a pate covering as felt. And Jewell Patterson said, that he always looked forward to the day when he could take off the straw and put on the felt. Henry Harms, of West Bend, assured me that to him and many other West Bend citizens there just wasn't any pate covering could beat a felt hat and that's how they felt. Phil Kohlhaas observed felt hat day wearing his felt hat and he told me lhat he felt wearing the. felt Was a yearly pleasure occurrence because on account of he loved the feel of the felt hat. Henry Stroebel, living eight miles northeast of Algona, came to town / wearing his felt hat and he said he enjoyed every mile of the drive because of the strong wind battling his felt hat but he never lost it once, so to speak. —o— W. S. Shackelford wore his felt covering proudly and said that he only had the one felt hat but he felt comfortable and well covered under his felt hat. Tom Reed said that he had worn his felt hat every felt hat season for a long time and he just could not understand how any man who loved good head covering and hair protection could get .along without his felt, so to speak. R. J. Leigh, of north of town, said he sure welcomed felt hat every year and he had always found and felt that a felt head covering felt much more appropriate this time of year. And Ray Irons proudly donned his felt hat on felt hat day and he said that he had always felt that a felt head covering by way of a felt hat was the sensible and proper thing for any man to follow, and Ray sure did have a swell felt hat and he looked good in it, too. Fred McCarty told me that he just couldn't see any existence worth while if there was no wearing of a felt hat. He said that the felt over your hair just felt right and perfect and he felt that the gent who felt that felt wasn't any better than straw sure was missing one of lifels. best head covering questions, so to speak. . Yes. the weather, has been miserably hot since felt hat day, last Thursday, and there were many gent felt hat owners who just didn't wear anything over It's Open Season For Foot Flattery!

That was one reason why Ralph Miller strolled up the street minus head covering of any kind. But Ralph assured me 'that he ha'd a felt hat and that he loved a felt hat and always felt that felt,on his pate was a credit in appearance to him. And I agree with him because on account of Ralph really has good gent looks, hair- wise and otherwise, so to speak. Lawrence Winkel told me that the reason he didn't wear a felt was because he believed in straw head covering up to Ch'ristmas, if the weather permitted it. And, of course, there are many other gents feel the same way about pate covering, so to speak. Yes, I wore my felt hat, and I'll keep on wearing it until ear laps become necessary, and even then if ear laps could be attached to the old felt I'm inclined to believe I'd wear it until April Fool's Day at least. I've always felt that felt had a proper place in connection with the few hairs I have left on my skull and so I stick with the felt because I've always felt that felt felt better over my half dozen locks, sp' to speak. —flit was Friday evening that I did a bit of arithmaticing concerning traffic into Algona arid so I parked and counted the cars which crossed the intersection tif State and Phillips streets and the time was 7 o'clock and it just seemed that all sorts of folks were coming to Algona because on account of in one hour I counted 768 cars which came from the north and south and turned wast towards the Joop. Of course some of them were probably through traffic but it's -a cinch that Friday eve'ning sa>y many cars because on account of the loop district parking was simply over crowded. And from the north intersection of 169 and 18 I counted in 15 minutes after 8 o'clock 169 cars heading into Algona and so in an hour that would mean 676 drivers in the one hour. Even assuming that only half of these drivers stopped in Algona we would have between seven and nine o'clock a total of 2788 cars entering our town from the north and south and it's a cinch that at least two- thirds of those motorists were Algona visitors, so to speak.
