(la.) Upper Detr Moines Thursday, October 11', 1955 li wais the olher day 1 got a letter frbm Frank J. Stebritz and I sure got a kick out of that letter because on account of it contained a tongue twister and a good one at that. And here it is: "I read yoitr crazy stuff ifl the paper and even if it is crazy I enjoy reading it. Here's a short tongue twister; even if you can't use it you can read it; ~ Bill had a billboard, Bill also had a board bill and the bo-ard bill'bored'Bill, so Bill Sold his billboard to pay his board bill and so the board'Will no longer bored Bill." Yep, this really is a dandy tongue twister and thanks to Frank. It was one day las! week thai I signed up Marcella Lovstad, daughter of Mr and Mrs Emil IOWA'S WONDER SHOWPLAC!

Her membership number is 17890 and she is the youngest gulper club member out of the nearly 18,000 members. And I know she is deserving of the membership because ort account of she sure knows all of the 100 percent angles in loving and gulping ol coffee and though she is only ten years of age I am glad to have her a member of the coffee gutper association because on account of she has all of the qualifications and proper stances in gulping her cup of coffee, so to speak. II won't be long now unlil the 8th day in November and that is going to be a humdinger of a day in Algona bedause on account of that is the day when we residents of the Kossuth county seat elect a mayor. And with six candidates in the running it just looks like the vote on that day will be a humdinger too because the vote will turn out to battle for one gents election to the top office in Algona. Yes, I am going to vote for one of those gents, but they are all nice gents and maybe 1 should put their names in a hat and then draw out a name and so cast my vote. I have asked several of them were they paying anything for votes and how much, but they denied any intention of spending any money for marks on the ballot. At any. rate when the vote is counted one of them will start serving as the chief in Algona, and it won't make much difference which one, so I am told, because on account of those gents are all ol good mayorship timber, so to speak. —o— I have been asked by quile a few gents why didn't I come out for mayor? Well, that's easy ( to answer—because on account I'm a democrat and I'm told that Algona is republican in majority. And then another reason is this, that I'm most too dumb to take over the top office in this city. And one member of the council told me that an ordinance would be passed forbidding''the mayor to blow his mouth-harp In the city municipal building, and at no time would the mayor be permitted to carry a fiddle into the building. So you can see that as another reason why I couldn't be mayor. "I'm sitfe glad 16 heat ihtt President- Eisenhower is coming out O.K. from the heart attack he suffered several weeks ago. The president is a member of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers. I signed him up when he was .a candidate the first time,: sent him a card and told him that I knew he loved his coffee aftd Wbuld be a good member in the gulper organization. But I told him I couldn't vote for him because on account of I was a democrat. And then several .weeks after he was elected his secretary, Russell, wrote that the president was glad to become a member of the gulpers • group b'ut'he also stated that the president said he didn't need my vote. And I guess he's got something there. And I note by the newspapers' and on the news casts of radio that the president can enjoy gulping his coffee, so to speak. I'm iold that Ihe duck hunting season is on and that the many good trigger pullers and good shots are out after the feathered goodness, so to speak. I don't know how come, but I've never been a good aimer or trigger puller and so I never did hit a duck and I sure love the wild duck steaks, so to speak. And so it is that I'm hoping that some good duck hunter will get the limit some day and then hand me a dead duck and I'd sure appreciate and appreciate and appreciate, so to speak.
