(la.) Upper Des Melnes Tuesday, February 21, 1956 Ravings CO by CttRtS REESE A Lliita ot Thlt, a tltlla of That: Not Mitch . of Anything , 'Well, spring is finally here, so to speak. Winter clewed up s its activities over the' last weekend. If you remember, we always experience the real winter the last two weeks in February and it was on Thursday of last week that show came and along with it drizzly sleet and sidewalks, streets and highways were subjected to : a slippery condition that was not at all of the plea* sant type. And, the weekend experienced *a real snow-fall, about two inches. It seems that the close of winter, late in February, always makes it appearance and we sure experienced it last week.. Yes, there probably will be some more winter before March, arrives but we are accustomed to that now, has been the case regularly year after year. And I quizzed several gents the other day as to what they thought about this winter spell just prior to spring. Opinions varied, some ' were for winter tending to business and stay with us in full uritil time for spring. Roy Bjustrom told me that he sure favored winter being winter as long, as it should be winter and so when spring came we were happier and could do without winter, so to speak. And Herb Hedlund said thai he had gotten so used to winter that he could get along very well without spring days and spring weather 1 butting in- until after the 1st of March. John Spencer said he had experienced enough of winter weather ' and spring weather so he didn't care a hang . how winter and spring days mixed up prior to spring springing, up, so to speak. When I asked Tony Sorensen what he thought about winter tutting way into situation he had just gotten usea to the jumping about of mixed winter and spring days in February So he didn't let it bother him any. And Gone .Schemel told me that he wasn't the least interested in weather'conditions summer, fall, winter or' spring so long as there wasn't too much Snow to shovel any time during the year, so lie was for all the seasons alike—less snow shovel- ing-.''Twas Dwaine Lighter who specifically and with perfect U.S language and grammer told me that at no time had he' worriec about spring butting in too early or winter dragging late into spring, just so spring came before June 1st and didn't start until after Christmas. Roy Chrisiensen, who also lives on a corner with sidewalk territory extending also east, insisted spring was highly spring or .spring coming in during the middle of February he remarked that so long as he didn't have any control over the south and that early favored by him so long meant elimination of. snowfalls, so to speak. And Ferman Christoffers is an earnest wisher for early spring because on account of he has garden acreage and he likes to have the frost out of the ground so he can properly cultivate it and get his planting done before the 1st of June. And it may be that this year we a"re going to find frost out of the ground in plenty good season because on account of we really didn't have such a hard frozen winter, except for the below zero days we experienced just' several weeks ago. At any rate an early spring is appreciated by everybody, so it seems, because on account of we can shed the heavy wool and Winter underwear we've been lugging around, so to speak. —o— Yep, an early spring will be appreciated by most of us because on account of we can forget the cold tablets • and pills and cut out the colds coughing. And, too, • there will be less shoveling of furnace coal or cobs, anch the gas and oil bills will be a deeply appreciated relief, so to speak. And those of us who have lawns to mow and take care of are much more the happier when pushing a lawn mower instead of shoveling tons of • snow. Aiid spring is the much more appreciated than is zero and snow, so to speak. And I' am, heartily in favor of spring Donna Strayer Bride-Janl 29 taking, over about the middle of Donna. Jean Strayer, daughter of Mr and Mrs Howard Strayer who were Algona residents for eight years, became the bride of Richard A. Jobes of Melvin in a ceremony performed Jan, 29 at the Hartley Methodist church Keith Stiraysr, uncle of the Dride, gave a prayer during the ceremony. The bride, pictured above, who was born in Algona, is a 1953 graduate of 'Hartley high. The couple will make their home in Ames where the bridegroom, who has returned from two years of service, is majoring in engineering at Iowa State College. •Bancroft 8y Mrs, Lawrence Bergman February and no more zero conditions to meet up with until, say next Christmas. There are many who somewhat like winter conditions but, usually, they only want short lengths of time of those conditions. Yes, next week we take on the first of March and I believe that 99 per cent of folks in general really look forward with much happiness, gladness and joy to thu winter closing up for good and so we take on spring, with all of its warmer conditions. How about it, don't you feel that same way, too? It is estimated that there are about 75,000 .patients admitted to mental instiiitions in the U. S;' each year. • Mrs Roger Wilhelrfitreceived word that her husband fioger left New York Thursday for England where Jie will be stationed with the Air Force, « Mr and 'Mrs William Quinn and Mr arid Mrs Eppo: Johnson, ot Buffalo Center'left this week for an .extended visit In the* south. Mr and Mrs Lawrence Bergman and Donna, Mrs Richard Menke and Alice, and Mrs Ben Farrow of Lakota spent Tuesday in Mason City, • , Mr- and Mrs Lawrence Schiltz ahd family of Waterloo spent the weekend at the home of Mi' and Mrs John Schiitz. , Mike Hoffman and C. M. Baker left Tuesday morning for a vacation trip through the western states. Greenwood Girls 4-H met at the home of Mary Lou and Kathleen Kollasch, Feb. 4.

(:, J (fits ihe Buiok QP£Q/AL— and you rea/fy ought to try ft f) T ins is the one that's going to town in a BIG way. And you'll know \vhat we mean when you take its measure-by any yardstick you choose. By the pound and inch, it's the biggest bundle of high- powered action and high-fashion luxury ever ottered iu Buick's lowest-priced Series. By the dollar sign, it's a value so big that Buick outsells every other car in America except two of die well- known smaller ones. But not till you've put this 1956 Buick SPECIAL to the road can you know what a big-time performer it really is. You'll know it by the instant response and purring might of a 322-cubic-inch VS engine that's been lofted to uew peaks of power and compression. You'll know it by the flash-away action of a new Variable Pitch Dynaflow* that steps up getaway and gas mileage in normal situatioiis-and zooms to full-power WHEN BETTER AUTOMOBILES ARE 8UIIT BUICK Will BUILD THEM acceleration for a needed safety-surge when you floor' the pedal and switch the pitch. You'll know it by your complete mastery of a big car that handles like a dream-steers like a wish-and rides like a cloud in the blue. B/G-that's the word for this Buick SPECIAL ,.« BIG-coming, going, or standing still... BJG-in its stretch-out roominess—in its sweeping beauty—in its solid steadiness ... BIG, most of all, in the way it makes your money talk... Come in-soon-and let this Buick speak for itself. We think you'll find it sweet listening. *New Advanced Variable Pitch Dtjnaflow is the only Dynafloio Buick builds today. It is standard on Roadmaster, Super and Century-optional at modi-it extra cost on the Special. .**"»« MClOf OttASON •_ ON TV •* t It'* 109 N, Hall —— AT A NfW tOW P8/«-4-S«a»on Comforl in yogr ntw Buiek with fUGlDMK CONOITIONIf«' BRANDT BUICK HOSPITALS .fart. 30 — Jolene Schuls, Irv* ington, medic&l; W.
