' ?v ' : ''"- (la.) Up^er De» Thursday, Oefabe? 6;j 1955 A tlUt* 01 »W«, .'i <•! Thill Not Muck .the season of the yea* is here again when I'd find out how many .leaves the trees in the city will shed. True, we have lots of Wees in Algona, and they seem, to 'have grown a peachy crop of, leaves and now they're .beginning to fall and just think ;of all the raking there will have to be done soon. I wish a committee could be appointed to take over the job of counting the leaves in Algona. Yes, I have • reference to the leaves which grow on trees and not the leaves which gents may have from their jobs, etc. The average man, I find, believes in knowing the number of leaves which leave the trees and so the ,lawn receives. No one really grieves because of falling leaves and I don't mean . table, top leaves' or book leaves or newspaper leaves, it's leaves off the trees, so to speak. And I'd sure like to know the'num- ber'of leaves which leaves'the trees, but I just can't do it alone. Too many trees and takes too much time. So, if you are interested in knowing the number of billions or trillions of leaves which fall from Algona trees in . a day, let's get together and get . a gang to help Us do the job. Wouldn't take long if we could get a gang with a big membership and those who can count at least to ten, so to speak. ' There sure was a big crowd in town the day of the band parade when 27 different town and school bands paraded the main drag and blew, a top-notch kind of band music. And the rhythm,, musical and marching, of those bands was certainly something they could all be proud of. Outside of the drums and cymbals all ,of .trie instruments were wind ones and it's a cinch the musicians all knew how to blow and when to blow. • Yep, the parade and the music delivered by the bands were highly enjoyable and we sure have some dandy good bands in this city and neighboring towns. . And C. V. Fowler as*ed. me why didn't I do some arithmaticing regarding the wind pressure which was used in doing that parade and playing those band numbers by those hundreds of dandy musicians. And I wish I could do some such arithmatic- ing because it would be interesting to know to what extent those 'breaths, were they all gathered into one solid breath, could take on cyclonic effects and tumble houses and • trees and poles in a given area. But, be that as it may, those bands, those musicians, sure put on a fine parade & their music was tops in every regard. And it's a cinch that the crowd of folks who'took in the parade and enjoyed it ran into thi thousands. Both sides of the main drag for four blocks were packed with listeners, young and old. And I made a remark as to how many possibly were listening and watching the parade and it was then that Dwaine Lighter suggested that we get a dozen guys together and start counting the crowd at Jones street to Harlan street, both sides, that is he thought we should count their feet and then divide the total by two and we'd have the number of folks who were enjoyably getting a bang out of the parade and peachy music, so to speak. We quizzed several in our crowd as to how they would help us and the answer was always in the negative because the boys would rather count faces because on account of there were so many beautiful girls and ladies in the crowd, and the boys all admitted that they liked pretty faces much better than they did pretty feet. So we had to give up the counting notion, but I asked a dozen or more gents as to how many they thought were in the five blocK stretch of the main drag and their answers all reached way into the thousands, so to speak. —o— Yep. politics aie the day's big subject just now and will be for another month arid I sure get a kick oyt of politics because on account of I like politics. And right here in Algona it looks like there was going to be a big vote cast on election day because on account of there are five Algona gents in the ring for the office of mayor. And I admit that all of the candidates are nice gents, and any one of them or all of them would serve as mayor in a beneficent and creditable manner. And, funny as it may seem, I've been approached several times to come out for mayor but which I don't propose to do because on account of I might be elected, so to speak. I've been told by several gents, both republican and democrat, that I'd make a good mayor because I'm sort of a nuts gent and which I admit. But you don't have to be nuts to be mayor of this town, in fact you've got to show a pretty good mental capacity, although it isn't necessary that you are a windy sort. But if the windy son ot gent would make the best mayor then I'm .sure I'd do a good job because on account of I've got plenty of shooting off at the mouth, and no wonder I'm accused of being just a nitwit nut, bo (o speak. There is no right way to do a wrong thing. Steam F 0^ £xwision trip, Oct. 16 ALL ABOARD!
