Japanese Dish W Dutch, Czech Recipes Run Close Second The entries in the Foreign Foods category of the ninth Algona Upper Des Moines-Algona Merchants Recipe Contest sound like a Cook's tour of the world, but they brought just one typically American comment from thfe board of judges—"Wow!" These contests have been interesting and exciting every week but the unusual dishes from other lands are absolutely fascinating. And, almost without exception, they contain ingredients available at all times at your local grocer's. Ten dollars prize money goes this week to Mrs James Wildin of Irvington for her recipe for Sukiyaki, a Japanese main course dish. It's really authentic for Mrs Wildin is a native of Japan and came to this country as a G. I. bride. She learned to cook at college in Japan and picked up quite a few tricks at home from her mother. Mrs Wildin says it's about the only Japanese dish her husband is fond of and that is true mostly because there's lots of meat in it. "Americans eat much more meat than the 'Japanese do.", she said. She also commented that Sukiyaki is often Americanized by adding chopped celery, but her recipe does not call for it. A Close Helen Comfort, who puts out such excellent hot lunches for our school children, can also whip up more exotic concoctions it we can judge by her ehtries in this Week's cohtest. She was a close- runner-up with her recipe for Blinde Vinken, (fclind Finches or Beef Birds). The dish is from The Netherlands and it uses thin beef steaks rolled around strips of pork steak and gherkins. Her other recipe came from Czechos- lovakia-Milosti which is Fried Pastries. They are flavored with grated lemon rind and grape or other fruit juice. As far as numbers go, Scandinavian recipes lead the field. From Norway we have Kringle, a figure 8 pastry, from both Mrs Albert Mitchell of Fenton and Audrey Frye of Algona. These same two ladies also sent recrpe for Lefse or Lefsa—a kind of thin pancake often served with Lutefish or meat' ball.. Audrey Frye also sent a'Vecipe for another kind of Norwegian Pancake and one for Komile, (Potato Dumplings). Mrs George Jorgensou of Fenton sent a recipe for Smor Kranser, a yeast dough butter ring which sounds like a typical Norwegian accompaniment for coffee. When we stop in Sweden on our cook's tour we're sure to have meat balls. Mrs Ben Reid, Audrey Frye and Theresa Thilges of Algona 'have recipes for them and Vivian Dutton of Burt has Swedish Ham Balls. in Brown I WESTERN AUTO STORE Timetable For Duck Shooters Paste this Official Time Table in your hunting cap for future use.

Fer- Real 'Closed Meeting' Held By Sexton Club By the Village Gossip Sexton—The Friendly Club had a real closed meeting at the Ambrose Lickteig home with Mary McMahort assistant hostess. The doors and windows were covered for the showing of colored slides taken on their California trip by Mr and Mrs Glenn Gabrielson, Another trip was described in Mrs Everett Steven's history ol the Passion Play in the Black Hills. Because of Mrs Carrie Olsen's illness the next meeting will be a pot luck lunch in the Gabrielson Community Hall. Mrs Everett Steven, Mrs Ambrose Lickteig and Mrs Glenn Gabrielson were appointed entertainment committee and Mrs August Kirschbaum, Mrs Wilford Ward, Mrs . Merle Hoover ana Mary McMahon were put in charge of decorations and food for the party on Oct. 27. It Always Happens It was one of those afternoons when everything happened for Mrs Julia Taft. While she was at lub her three sisters, Mrs Willam Speicher of Buffalo Center; vlrs Speicher of Titonka; and tfrs Harvey Graham of Algona :ame to call on her at the Fred fennings home. Mr.s Carrie Olsen had been released from the hospital. One ;ood sign she is feeling better s that she wants to come home now but she is in good hands-at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Mr and Mrs Leslie rluff of Algona. Joyce Gabrielson enjoyed a Dig day when she accompanied ner grandmother, Mrs Vinnie Laymon, to Mason City. Mr and Mrs Art Klein are still entertaining Alabama visitors as Mr and Mrs William Klein and Mrs Roy Bornholt of Fairhope are spending a few days here. Ann Steven had a double celebration of her 12th birthday. Her friend, Juneadel Lieb of Algona spent the night with her. The Steven family was also invited to the A. M. Genrich home at LuVerne for a birthday dinner Mr and Mrs Everett Hodgin and family of Slater spent Sunday at the Everett Steven home. Mr and Mrs John Jennings are one couple who really enjoy their grandchildren and each new one is a big thrill. They are happy ,o welcome a new grandson, a son born to Mr and Mrs Virgil Jennings at Iowa City. Mr and Mrs Glenn Gabrielson aren't all traveled out yet as they spent another weekend in Chicago seeing the sights with Mr and Mrs Charles Nygaard of Wesley. Looks like Mrs Nick Krieps is | going back to farming again with the time she spent the past week on trying to keep a wandering herd of hogs in and painting im, corn crib. „* The Sexton population had a big increase for a while when the railroad moved in three work cars as home for a- crew of gandy dancers. There was a rumor their company wasn't wanted in Algona but the city shouldn't have worried as the fellows were very quiet neighbors. Perhaps the fact the boss' wife accompanied the gang was a good influence. The four' young men from here joining the crow ami planning to travel on with them are John and Alfred Opheim, Lloyd Wise and Jack Schaeffer. Some doctor didn't work a miracle to make Mrs Arch Burger feel so wfll this week. The best medicine of all came on the morning train in the person of Leroy Burger of Hamburg, N. Y., youngest son of Mr and Mrs Arch Burger. Their other son, Frank, married Friday evening at Britt. The young couple will go on a farm near Woden next spring. At present Mr Huff is working on construction of government corn bins. Now that most of the corn is in, the local elevator has a different kind of traffic jam. Farmers are lining up their tractors and trailers with soy beans now that combining is in full swing. Don't let the men's clothes fool you though because some of the tractor drivers are women. One town resident, Mrs Bud Elberts, is doing her share helping with the Henry Bailey's combining. One group of flowers bringing a lot of comment are the morning glories near the front door of the Bob Kelley home. They look like a different kind of animal to everyone who notices them. So You Think You've Got troubles Dept. — When Frank Kern, AHS football stalwart, broke his left hand in the Eagle Grove game, that was bad enough, but when he dislocated his right shoulder in football practice last week, he was left with literally no hands. He still has two fingers or so with which to eat and carry his books to classes, however, and that's something. ^ , ,.. It seems to be a contest between AHS and Iowa U. to see which can come up with the most injured players. Proportionately it looks like a hot race. —SS Duck Season To Open Saturday » The 1955 Iowa waterfowl season Will open Saturday, Oct. 8, and state conservation officers are already reporting the arrival of teal' and other early ducks in the state.

WHAT NEXT We've heard about kids putting sand, gravel and various other items into gas tajiks but some pranksters at Madrid added a new twist the other day. They slipped a balloon into the gas tank of a school bus. The bus got part way over its route and conked out. Mechanics sweated long and hard before finding the source of the trouble. The balloon, sucked from the gas tank, lodged but good in the bus' fuel pump. - — Many people could retire comfortably on what their experience has cost them.
