It was recently that t pfinted in this column a tongue twister mailed to me by a tongue twisting gent at Wesley and it seems that this tongue twisting matter has been taken up by others and so here is a tongue twister I received the other day. The twister was not signed but the envelope it came in carried a Bancroft post mark and so it looks like the Bancroft gent has taken up tongue twisting in competition with Ihe Wesley gent. However, tongus twisting must be fun. So I am herewith printing the Bancroft gent's tongue twist: "It was at. a shoe show that she saw shoes soled. Since she saw shoes soled at the shoe show she showed shoes she saw soled at the shoe show. Since she showed shoes she saw soled at the shoe show she sold the shoes she showed that she saw soled at the shoe show." There you have it—some SPARK PLU CARS, TRUCKS TRACTORS AND YCLE ENGINES PERCIVAL MOTORS See Large Ad in "Farm and Home" Section tongufc twisting to repeat that tongue twister, so to speak. But it is interesting to find that Kos- uith readers also arc interested in proper tongue twisting. If you have a tongue twister why not send it to me so I can repeat it in the column? There is much merit in tongue twisting at that. There has been plenty of fishing going on by local fisher gents the past several weeks and it has proven that we do have some fishing gents here who know how to get a bite and how to bring 'em in. It was over at Okoboji that Hank Furst and Cecil McGinnis swung the bait into the wet and first thing they knew they had walleyes and bass aplenty, it just seemed as though the fish couldn't help but fall for the gents' bait, so to speak. And at Loon Lake Bud Briggs pulled in perch and northerns galore almost enough to fill the car trunk, and weight was high. And the Meyer brothers went to Pine City, Minn., and nonchalantly pulled in 15 catfish averaging 15 to 20 pounds apiece, and that's no small fishing material to pull in either. Bob Sigsbee brought in a stringer filled with fishes the other day. Where he caught 'em the neighbors didn't know but they saw him spend a big lime cleaning 'em. And 'twas a really good catch, so to speak. And in our own river just west of town the other day George Wille pulled in two northerns, one of 'em weighing 5 pounds, and one walleye, and so he proved a dandy local district fish puller, j,o to speak. —o— Nick Maharas at Ingham Lake the other day managed to bring to shore five buljheads and there were two elderly ladies, past 70, also fishing there and they pulled in the limit of walleyes, five each. And Nick says there may be something to knowing all the angles of how and when to pull in the bigger catches, so to speak. And now that the duck season has opened there are many Algona gents lugging their shot guns into the rural areas and along the creeks and rivers in search for the elusive ducks. And it was on the opening day that Arnie Ricklefs and Ernie Norman loaded their guns ana took shots at the feathered game and they managed to down five teel and four mallards and that's not bad for the first clay of gun practicing, so to speak. And on Monday morning they got three geese, and it looks like those boys know how to aim and when to pull the trigger. And it's a cinch that from now on for a spell there'll be much of aiming and trigger pulling and feathered game massacred, because on account of it's a lot of fun to pick up the gun and hunt and aim and shoot and down the feathered game. I, *.*!-... -0 Yep, politics is beginning io reach into the cvery-day being of we of Algona because on account of we're about to vote for city offices, so to speak. And I'm sure getting a kick out of the political angles because on account of there doesn't enter into the voting whether for or against a republican or democrat, so to speak. world's only heater with MIDGET PILOT! Yop. 1 like politics nnd I've been active along those lines for years. It was in Marshalltown, Iowa, that 1 was elected council- man-at-largc and there was plenty of political activity surrounding that election. And then later I was elected slate senator from that county and there's something to wonder about because on account of I was a democrat and Marshall county is overwhelmingly republican, so to speak. And serving as a state senator means more politics every day, seemingly. Yep, I voted legislation with both parties, democrat and republican, and sure got a big kick out of holding a senator job for four years. But 1 am still a democrat, even though I voted with the republicans many times because on account of I voted for what I felt was best for the people, re- gardles of political angle. But I'm still a democrat, and that's that.
