It was ihe 6ther day that l happened to meet up With a 1956 calendar on which the holidays Of the year were marked up in fed figures and So I promptly attended to some holiday arith- -aticing. Regularly we have 11 .-jlidays within the 365 days of the, year but this time we have tJVo more because oriVaccount of the regular holiday falls on a Sunday and so it is mdve^ up one day. For instance the 1st of January falling on a Sunday the holiday Was moved up to Monday. And in February Lincoln's birthday falling on a Sunday is moved up to Monday, February 1& Washington's birthday, the Other February: holiday, fell on Wednesday, the 22nd of Feb. In March there are no Holidays \yhatever. When I say holidays I-mean a day other than a Sun day, of course. April has -on holiday, the 1st, April.Fool's Day May has the one holiday known as Decoration Day, the 30th. June has no holidays whatever either unless I should call the 21st a holiday beqause on account o that's my birthday, the middle of .the.year and the longest day in the year. . July comes next with only one ^holiday) the 4th, an especially .noisy and firecracker day. But 'that's all in July. Not one of the 31 days in August can be declared a holiday. And of the 30 days m September there falls but one holiday, known as Labor Day. And that doesn't mean you work any harder on that day because on account of it is a day selected by organized workers as one day of celebration ,for their cause, so .to speak. There is but one holiday in October, the 12th, known as' Columbus Day, in 34 states in the union, but that does not include Iowa so we don't celebrate that day. November brings us two holidays, the 6th being general election day and so can be celebrated by republicans, democrats and socialists alike as they cast their vote, so to speak. The second November holiday is Thanksgiving Day which this xeazj&lls on the 22nd.. Up to. 1 : '$ithiSHhe past few years Armis- .' , tice day was one of celebration in all the states but for some un known reason that day Is losing in popularity. I sure don't knov why. And then comes Decembe with the one holiday, generallj obsherved by the world at largi and that is Christmas. Yes there you have.a line-up of thi holidays we celebrate in lowt and the United States, so to speak. —o— Probably the three words used the most within the past week were "Happy New Year.", Surely they Were expressed by you, by him, by her, by them aplenty during the past Week. 1 know this—"Happy New Year" were .hree well meant words express ed by all of us.

With the objective in mind o better meeting the needs anc wants of older 4-H club mem bers, a special organization meet ing was held December 27 to or- ganise a Kossuth County Junior Leadership progi-am. Two older members from each boys and girls' club in the coun. ty, plus the 4-H girls' and boys county officers were invited to you the happiest of happy new gears' came from Te'd Vera and Im sure he meant it.

And Frank Zender wished for me a Happy New Year with tops of all former happy new years. Yes, I was wished a iappy New Year by most everybody I met the past few days and sure appreciate their interest n my well-beilig and the hap- mess I may enjoy throughout he coming year of 1950. Thanks lot boys. - Chas. Fox with "If the New Year can be as happy for you as it is for me then I'll be doubly happy." Mel Griffin said "I don't need to wish you a Happy New Year because on account of I see you're just right happy now." And Harold Lampright handed me this "Of all the happy seasons tot you to experience it's my wish that • a Happy New Year tops them all." And Beecher Lane met me with "There can't be any happier season than the Happy New Year and I'm sure wishing it for you." Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst met me with "Happy New Year and I lope it continues with a good re- ?ord for you and I won't have to :all on you." Wade Sullivan offered this "Happy New Year Mr. Democrat (and which I am) and hope the year remains within the democratic angle for you as always."
