Phone 12-F32 . Algona Can you beat this, here's a letter I received from an Upper Des Moines reader at Whittemore: "Say, Mr. Raver, I have been an Upper Des Moines reader for over 20 years and among other printing in the paper I also read your bunk (or is it junk you call it) and I got a kick out of the ton- gue-lwisler stuff you had in your column lately and so I decided'to also hand you a tongue-twister and you can print it if you wqnt to. It is one that my dad, years and years ago, evolved and it was printed in an early edition of the home paper at Whittemore. No, I am not signing my name to this letter but I can assure you ol this—you know me and I know you, though we don't each owe the other a cent. Here it is and I think it's quite clever, having lo cid with soldiers and my dad served in the army years and years ago: "I saw six short soldiers scrubbing six short shirts, six short soldiers scrubbed and scrubbed, six short soldiers rubbed and rubbed; six short soldiers sung a .song; their singing surely showed those six short shirts that six short soldiers scrubbed and scrubbed were six short shirts that Sister Susie sewed." And there you have another twister, so to speak. —o— II just looks to me like Ed Shackelt'ord should be the president and leader of the Algona Pipe Puffing Club because on account of lie sure knows his pipes and his puffing, so to speak. I find that Ed lias 24 pipes, various in size and in cost, and he carries four to six with him all the time night and day, and he sure knows how to use them, too, because hi? is a good smoker and can even blow it through his nose in smoke clouds, so to speak. And it's a cinch Ed should know how to smoke a pipe because on account ot he says he has enjoyed pipe puffing for about thirty years. The pipes cost runs from two bucks to §13,50, but Ihe killer is one lhal was given him as a present. But Ed uses the better brand of pipe tobacco and so his smoking is not of the smell sort. And Ed also has and uses the most gentlemanly stance in his smoking. The pipe between his teeth holds the most correct position. And he doesn't clash the ashes out of his pipe except in proper receptacles, never shakes his pipe on the floor or the rugs. And his pipe sm-oking stance'is of the approved sort, miows just how the pipe looks besj when between his teeth, etc. Yes, I'm sure in favor of Ed taking over the leadership in the Algona Pipe Puffers Organization, because on account of he's tops in knowing how to use a pipe, has the most perfect, stance, .and has a collection of pipes which is topmost in pipe ownership in this city, so to speak. —0— It was over the weekend that I visited in Des Moines and so on the return trip home Sunday afternoon I done some arthmatic- ing and counting along traffic lines and I sure like lo do that, too. And I found that there is plenty speeding on the highway because on accouftt of 1 kept my bus at a 60-mile limit, never over lhal speed and so there were counted 421 cars which passed me at a higher going, so to speak. And so I now know that most of the car drivei-s can't take a 66* mile speed, top slow for them, it seems. But I also know that yoUr car gets more mileage per gallon than does that for the driver who holds, a 60-1nile going too slow. There are several stretches between here and Des Moines where the paving has been widened and on those stretches over a 60-mile going is not so bad. But I still feel that an 80-mile going on some of the old and narrow arid rough paving we have is too much. Well, maybe I'm nuts about highway speeding, but 1 do know this, when two cars meet at 40-mile or 60-mile going they don't raise near the dickens that the two cars do when going 70 or 80, so to speak. —o— In another three weeks we're going to have an election in this city and I predict we're going to have a lot of fun on that day. And I also predict that there is going to be a dandy good turn-out of folks who propose to mark their ballot for this, that or the other gent running for office. With five candidates for mayor the outlaok tor a heavy vole is plenty good. And I sure would get a kick out of voting for all five", but voting regulations put a stop to that and I can only vote for one. By the way, all five candidates for the chief office are nice gents, I know them all, and this I do believe, that any of them will make a dandy good head of city officialdom, so to speak. , ^f ^^W^^^^^^^^» ' • ^^^••J'^^i^^ ST.
