And it proved a real one, with several inches of snow and the thermometer hanging around the zero mark. It was Phil Kohlhaas whom I first heard express his appreciation of the arrival of regular winter. It wasn't that he was so tickled about it but he told me that he sure was getting tired of out-of-season atmospheres and not knowing just how to figure at night whether the next day was to be a chilled one or whether he should turn on the heat during the night in the house. And Dutch Honsbruch told me that he sure appreciated the change because on account of he was tired of carrying his overshoes back and forth to work each day while looking for the chill season to approach. And Claude Whitehill told me that the weather • change had brought about his digging up the winter Thursday, December f, 1955 Algeria (la.) Upper Des Moines-S CLOSING OUT AUCTION 4 mi.

And Ken Strahorn told me that now since there was snow he put on his overshoes back and forth to the store instead .of carrying 'm while expecting "snow and winter conditions, so to speak. —o— And since Sunday I've met with many gents who admitted that they were wearing winter underwear, had been wearing it for weeks, and now that winter is here .they are happy and fenl the more comfortable and not always suffering from thermometer higher reading because of the heavier under duds, so to speak. And Werner Struecker admitted that he always felt the more appreciative if we were having winter or summer weather in regular output instead or the two changing back and forth and giving us summer weather in November or zero weather in April, so to speak. So he's happy that winter came. Personally, I don't give a hang about the seasonal weather or unseasnnal weather approaches. If it snows in September I woudn't cart because on account of I have my sidewalks shoveled, so to speak. However, I did get a kick out of the winter which arrived on Sunday because on account of I like the color of snow and my un- raked lawn just looks sweet and swell under the snowfall, so to speak. —o— It was Monday at supper time (yes, I always call it supper, although most people speak of it as dinner time) that I was enjoying a pheasant breast and did it ever taste swell? And then all at once my false teeth bit into a bullet and that wasn't so pood, but I SUIT didn't split the bullet or smash it. Evidently j bullet is too tough for teeth punching. Did this ever happen to you? And following checking of the swell meaty portion we found no more bullets. But I suppose this is something that could happen to others when the pheasant is downed with shot. It was a pheasant that Gene Zender downed, one out of three, and he told me that the next time he gave us a pheasant which good aiming and shooting had downed he'd have the bird X-rayed before he brought it itv But he needn't do that, nor does any other hunter who makes us a present of a pheasant. We love pheasant enough and to the extent that a bullet is no trouble at all. r fy_j. Do you ever do crossword puzzles? Well, it's a cinch that a lot of us do because on account of the DCS Moinos Register prints a crossword puzzle every Sunday and I admit that I put in time trying to solve it. I get out the dictionary and in searching for definitions I learn new words by the dozen and my vocabulary is becoming quite extensive, so to speak. But I do know thK that there are a lot of Kossuth county readers who also put in time on the crossword puzzle. A friend of mine, a printer in DCS Moines. told me that out of 70.000 entries one week there was not one who solved the puzzle. And I am told that three were at least 1200 entries from Kossuth county. .Just proved that many folks get a kick out of battling the crossword puzzle. so to speak. At any rate I have found that my vocabulary ha.-, grown from leaps and bound" since I undertook searching a crossword solution. And it also helps a person's spelling, as well as setting out word meanings and placements. Yes, working 01. crossword puzzles proves another educational angle. You meet up with msny new- words, their meaning and their spelling, so to speak. Work crosswords — it's educational and a happy way of spending time. NEED PRINTING?
