2—Al§6na (la.) Upper DCS Moinei Thursday, December 8, 1955 CHHIS REESE A Utll* of Thl«, • tltlli o« ThM; MoJ Much of Anything. Well, il was on December 3rd that winter .really iunved in Algona with rain and >;v\v and ire and everything else that goes with winter, so to speak. On Saturday and Sunday the si reft? were so icy and .-lick that a jicnt almost took his lift- m his haiui- when he starti\l the ear. And several gents siigjjesled that i! might be smart in put skates on the wheels instead of chains and just sort- of glide around. And it was even suggested by several that with skate? instead "i chain.- there was a lot of excitement and fun in view and at times racing in the streets. Yes. it was a real wintry angle all around and now we are practicing and getting used to the winter driving so In speak. . Q , II was the olher day Ihat I found another gent here who is H pipe puffer and pipe- smoker and if proved to be "Bill" Becker and 1 sot to give it tn him he sure knows all of i'te 100 per cent angles that go with pipe puffing and pipe smoking, speak. It just looks like lie is second in the pipe puffing and pipe smoking angle with (lie city's leader, Eddie Sehackleford. tops pipe puffer and pipe smoker. And "Bill" has a collection of nineteen pipes as compared with Eddie's twenty- five. Yes, they are both tops in pipe puffing and pipe smoking and I'd suggest that some clay they get together and hold a competitive pipe smoking session and so could learn which of the two might be the leader and tops in all of the smoking angles from the time the pipe was lit and until the ashes were disposed of, 1 asked Bill as to how often did he clean his pipe and how did he do it and. lie told me that after smoking a pipe consecutively for three weeks' he attached it to a water pipe dnd .so shot several hundred gallons of aqua pura through the stem and the h«ad and resu.ltan.tly got a cleaned pipe again, because on account of he wanted every vestige of, Ihe tobacco and ashes removed. 1 asked both Bill and Eddie why didn't they take on cigaret'smok- ing and they both argued that from a pipe they could smoke until there was no more to smoke but' with a cigaret they had to waste an inch of it and throw it away because of too close of neat to their face, so to speak. Be that as it may these two gents are swell enjoyers of the pipe uncl its smoke. —o— According lo government weather observers the 1955 November was much more colder 'ban the 1954 November. It was Ihe coldest November'since 1930. The average daily temperature was 29.3") degrees compared to Wm. R, Becker Weds, Nov. 20th Mr and Mrs William R, Becker, who were married Nov. 2(1 in the Hellenic Orthodox Church at Mason City, aic shown in the above photo. Thi' bride is the loiiner Efthimia Karamitros, daughter of Mr and Mrs Sam Kara- 1 mitros of MaMm City, and tie | bridegroom is the son of Mr an 1 Mrs William Becker. Sr. ot Algon.'i. The Reverends Ko>t:irakis and Arseniow performed the ceremony. Maid of honor was Bess Karamitros. sister of the bride. The bride attended Mason City Junior College, Luther College ant! I.-iwa Stale Teachers and is teaching vocal music at Rucld. The bridegroom is a graduate o! Algona high school and Iowa Teachers. He is instrunu'iital mu.^ic .instructor at Rudd. Following a' wedding trip to Minneapolis, the couple is living in Mason City. an average for this area of 30.2 degrees. The low mark for thu month reached 2 below on Nov. 30 and il was (he coldest November recording in a decade. And along with the chills we also had light snow flurries and in facl the past November was the most wintry 'of any November in a quarter century, so to sp^ak. However, folks sort of became accustomed to the chills and now thjil winter is here in earnest we sort of don't, mind it so much. 0 And now we are beginning to think of Santa and as \\ell as we are going into the Christmas gift figuring and buying, so 10 speak. And we are feeling of and .stretching our purse to meet up with the Christmas gilts and M> forth. But 1 pulled a good one this year .by pulling away each week a bit of change and now that my Christmas buying lias, been taken care of I have no worries and no bills and, believe me, that really is something. Don't have to pinch and oineh weekly to be paying jp Christmas bills for months as was tli» case in the old days. It is .something that gives of joy to a g'Ti' and next year why don't you take- care of your Chiistina.i gift ex- pense like that? Or maybe you do, eh? By the way, the present icy condition of streets has proved ;j highly find joyous .something for the youngsters because on account of sled and skates have bee n dug up and there has been much of sk.itin.t; and sledding. In fact, one youngster told me that, this was something he was really getting a kick out of and he had never had an opportunity to get so much out of his skates and sled and he was hoping that the conditions would stick along fof another two months, or mftPe. And that .seems to be the feeling and hopes of the kids who af6 now getting much joy out of theft sledding and skating, so lo speak. True, there are many yourtgstef§ who have neither skates or sleds because there has been no such sports winter weather for some years. And we older gents are gelling used to it and are getting along fine gelling over the Icy and slippery walking conditions, so to speak.
