1956 is Leap Year. I don'i know why they call it thai unless it's because it takes four springs to make one, but I do know that every single, red- blooded American girl is' glad when it comes around. Bachelors beware! It's open season for husband hunting and although the gals keep right on doing like they've always done, now it is recogmzedly legal and above board. This year she doesn't have to wait for you to ask. her, she can do it herself. They don't dare have Leap Year any oftener than every four years! * * * I shall forever maintain thai it was Pa who popped the question to me and not the other/way around. But the year he chased me until I. caught him was 1940, and if you figure back by fours it was a Leap Year. He still hasn't figured out exactly what happened and I'm not going to divulge any personal secrets, but if there are any of you gals who are in the market for a man maybe I can hand out a few tips* Strictly from' research and observation, you understand. * * . * Sometimes men dbn'i know what's good for them. Lots of them think they prefer single cussedness with all the freedom in the world and a paycheck all their own to a little woman who'll tell him what to do, a mortgage covered cottage and four or five little exemptions on their income tax. It's up to the feminine sex to make them see the light. Leap Year is the time to do this and since hunting, fishing and trapping are familiar masculine pastimes, let's borrow from the rules and equipment of these sports for our Leap Year Guide to Husband Capturing. * * * First we will take hunting. In CONVERT YOUR GRAINS TO SOLID MEATY GAINS "As Much As $9.00 Savings Per lOOLbs. Gain" MINRA Corn savings now pay off more than ever! And you .can get first class RESULTS with'your hogs on Sargent Min' ral Meal. Results on corn savings are greatest with proper supplementing. Tests prove that you can save up to 6 bushels of corn per 100 pounds 'gain, compared to ordinary corn feeding. That ci>*s normal corn costs in half. If corn is $1.50, you can save up to $9 cash per 100 pounds of gains. On a 200 pound hog, that adds up to $18. Sargent Minral Meal gets such big corn savings RESULTS, because it has the genuine pork building ingredients. Blends these into a great money-saving hog supplement. Sargent Minral Meal has vitamins, proteins and minrals plus extra factors. On Minral Meal, hogs just naturally make a healthy, profitable finish.

Sargent & Co "Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" the regular version of this sport you buy the license first and then go look for the game. In husband hunting, you bag your game first and then go for the license—marriage license. As in regular hunting, the time involved in the case varies. Some game fairly begs to be brought down while in other cases the quarry is very illusive and the hunter must shoot all her amuni- tion. Sometimes, after bagging the game it proves not to be worth all the powder wasted on it so it is wise to be very careful in choosing your target. That dear at which you have been aiming may turn out to be only another wolf. * « * The art of camouflage can be effective in husband hunting for there is no use letting the game know that the attractive blind conceals a double-barrelled shotgun. Nature has provided you with the basic equipment but it doesn't hurt to improve on it a little with some alluring coloring and the judicious use of an enticing odor. Channel No. 5 and home-made apple' pie in equal proportions works fine. If you are planning on using some sort of call like they do in duck hunting, "Come To' Supper", is a good one although many experts think this isn't effective until later. During the hilm the game seems- to be much more interested in other attractions. * * * From the standpoint of those of us who Jiaye bagged our game and have .retired from the chase the main and most important rule for current husband hunters is, "No Poaching". The reservation where we keep our captive is private property and though the ex-quarry may exhibit a yen to stray a little there ,is definitely a "No Trespassing" sign. All offenders will be prosecuted accordingly. * * * Fishing as a sport is often referred to as, angling. In our Guide to Husband Capturing, 1 think we'll refer to it as, curving, for it is a well known fact that a curve makes extremely attractive bait. There is a little poem that goes: "Sitting still and wishing, Makes no person great, The good Lord sends the fishing, But you must dig the bait." If the unknown author doesn't mind, we'll paraphrase this a bit for oui' purposes so that it reads. Sitting still and wishing, Finds no gal a mate, She's gotta do the fishing, And he must "dig" her bait. * * * \ In all kinds of fishing, for the finny creatures and for husbands, so much depends on the bait. A fish won't bite on a $3.75 hand tied fly if it happens to prefer a slimey old angle worm. Neither will a man fall for a diamond bedecked damsel if he happeijs to prefer a nice sof,t, homey type. So, as a fisherman decides whether he's angling for a bullhead or a sturgeon, you decide whether you want a small- blonde-and-dependable or a tall- dark-and-handsome and vary your bait acordingly. A fisherman has more kinds of lure in his tackle box than there could possibly be fish. A gal' who is fishing for a husband has just as many kinds of allure in her make-up box. * * * Fishing, whether for husbands or fish, requires Ipts of patience. If .you happen to hook one that isn't up to specifications, throw it back before you put it on your stringer. There are lots more fish in the sea. Once you decide to keep your catch you have to remember that the possession limit for husbands is quite different from the one on walleyes. Just one at a time to a person and it's best not to keep him in a deep-freeze. But you can be like a fisherman in one other way Hi Jinks * . * * * t>e*ot«d to "Behifid The Scenes" lietris From Algoit* High School.

Besides sending the certificates awarded to AHS's Karen Hutchins and Maurice Noel for their poems published in the Annual Anthology of High School Poetry, the National Poetry Association sent certificates for-the four mentioned above. Hidden talent, springing up from nowhere. * * * AHS has no btets in its belfry- just mice on its .roof. * * ,* For those whor mourned ihe loss of the high school's annual vocal Christmas pfrogram, _ plans are in the making* for a spring extravaganza combining the talent of both the vocal and the instrumental departments. * * * Believe If or Not — The seniors have at last embarked upon their journey to Canterbury and may make fit before the spring rains 'come. SS* for both anglers and curvers love to brag about the one that got away. • * * ' Trapping is ihe third and least favored method in our Leap Y«ar Guide to Husband Capturing. It should not be used excepting in cases or emergency or as a ilalst resort. Men are essentially wild creatures and trapping leaves ;Jffl ugly wound that makes them ant to snarl at you and be very difficult to tame. Husbands aren't like fur-bearing animals for you don't snare them just-to get the pelt. You may feel like skinning them once in a while but the prime object is to love them so that with patience and kindness you can domesticate them. If you are successful at this, some day he may even buy you a pelt of your own—mink or mouton. • • • • Husbands aren't really like either fish or animals—I was only kidding. But with husbands, like other captured creatures, it's a good thing to be never too sure of his complete docility. After years and years of domestication they have been known to hear the call-of-the- wild and try to answer it. It's up to the wives to counteract this call and maybe even bring out a few of the tricks we used when we were hunting him. For as one local Jady who has kepf her husband fairly gentle for 30 some years told me, "If you can get along with them until they get through, their 40's, they make wonderful pets." • • • Well, gals, there are 366 days in 1956 in which to pratice these Husband Capturing tips. Some of them are already gone but I'm sure you made good use of the time. You'll; have quite a few theories and methods of your own to add and be sure to vary your bait. Make some field trips and see what the prospects are, but it could be that your best target can be found right close to home. At least that's the way it often works out with sportsmen. They go a thousand miles up into Canada for the fishing and hunting only to come home to find that there were bigger fish caught, better game bagged right here in Kossuth County! • • • 1 am having a wonderful time with the electric frying pan that Father gave me for Christmas I've made lots of things in and have hardly used my stove since I received it: The only thing that I have found that it doesn't make as well as by using my former methods is popcorn. I'll still take the old pressure cooker with the gauge removed for that. But this week's recipe for Spanish Rice should be good in the skillet even though it calls for an oven. I haven't tried it yet but I will real soon. It comes from Theresa Thilges of Algonn. 6 slices bacon, chopped J /4 cup finely chopped onion '/4 cup chopped green pepper 2 cups tomatoes 3 cups cooked ricev. 1 teasp. salt 1/8 teasp. pepper Fry bacon until crisp, remove and add onion and green pepper. Cook slowly until onion is soft and yellow. Add remaining ingredients and bacon. Bake in casserole in moderate oven, 350 degrees. If desired V'j cup grated American cheese may be sprinkled over top. —GRACE.
