BEST MINES or Gome and See Us I am in receipt of a letter written in Eickon, Alaska, by Melvin Graham, of the Burl neighborhood, and he asks me to sign up the personnel in the field house, air base, with which he is connected. He tells me that the personnel have their coffee twice daily with a few cups in between. The main coffee breaks are at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The boys drink at least two cups and sometimes throe during the break. There are eleven personnel in his section and there are at least 56 cups gulped during the day which would bring the total to .336 cups during the week for 14 persons, and this is just in one department. Melvin is being transferred to Sioux City and he expects to be home within a couple of weeks. And, by the way, he is driving from Alaska to Iowa. He wrote that they had several inches of snow there early in October and that about November 1st it begins to get dark at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Sure be glad to see and have a visit with Melvin when he returns to Kossuth and which, after all, is one of the best neighborhoods from every standpoint in the western hemisphere, so to speak. —n— Oh, yes, this is Thanksgiving Day, Observed in nationwide display Of gratitude in mind and heart In which we all take honest part. And we will sure be grateful, too, The two of us. yes, me and you. For many things have come our way To add of pleasure day by day. In health we've lived a happy year, At no time have we met with fear, We've taken on the daily grind With open hand and open mind. And often, when on pleasure bent, Results have made a good per cent, With weather, seasons just the type. Conditioning our living ripe. And through the many days and weeks Not once has working time sprung leaks. Yes, thankful we have right to be, The two of us, both you and me, That we have met with all the best, A year of health and work and rest. And thankful, too, we sure can be That we have homes in this city, For tops we find Algona, true, In which to live for me and you. It won't be long now until tax figuring time will be with us again, opening on December 1st. And by the looks of things we are going to be stuck for mor.o p.nd higher income taxation t"his time. There is a C 2/3 per cent tax boost because on account .of the tax rates, formerly ranging from 0.75 per cent to 3.75 per cent, now will be from 0.80 per cent to 4 per cent and this makes the increase of 6 2/3 per cent in tax rates. So, get ready brother, because on account of you're going to get stuck for more income tax this time, so to spenk, —o— The weatherman sure pulled some good ones on us the past week. The first of the week wei experienced snow and sleet and the streets became so icy that driving was misrable. And then on Sunday the weatherman handed us thawing weather and we almost felt as though spring was here. One day we took on an inch of snow-fall and the next day, after we dug up for having the walks shoveled, there was thaw galore and today thore's nary bit of snow. That weatherman sure pulls sort of tricks or '•wits 'm us, so it seems. But Jens P. Sorensen, 2nd district supervisor, and another good Dane, tells me that we can expert .some real winter between now and Christmas, because on account of tha.t seems to be a weather stunt that's pulled each year, with lovely fall weather w;'v into December we can expect, and usually get the toughest of winter through the holiday, so to speak. And if I remember rightly I guess Jens is right. I am a memker of the National Dunking Association, headquarters in Brownsville, Texas, and so is John Thuente because on account of it was recently that John and I had a dunking competitive session and he proved such an expert that I sent his name to the Donut Dunking Queen of Texas asking that he be signed up as a clunker member because of his expertness with dunking. He dunked a donut so perfectly that there wasn't even a touch of coffee on his finger nails. And there was not a drop of coffee fell from the donut between the cup and his lips. And since that dunking session I have had several other gents named to get membership with the dunkers, ar.u that I am going to attend to. I have a list of a dozen coffee gulping and donut dunking gants here in Algona who are entitle^ to membership in the National Dunking Association because of their expertness in handling a dandy donut after it has been soaked in their Java, so to speak.
