6-AlqOna (la.) Upper Oes Maine* Tuesday, February 21, 1956 Ravings by CHRIS REESE A Little of Thl*. a Littl« ol Thai; Not Much oi Anything Well, spring is finally here, so to speak. Winter closed up 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 snow came and along with it drizzly sleet and sidewalks, streets and highways were subjected to a slippery condition that was not fit all of the pleasant 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 until 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 butting in unfil 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, 1 " so to speak. When I asked Tony Sorensen what he thought about winter butting way into spring or spring coming in during the middle of February he remarked that so long as he didn't have any control over the situation he had just gotten nsrr* to the jumping about of mixo-n winter and spring days in i'Vbru- ary so he didn't let ii bother him any. And Gene Schrmcl told me that he wasn't the least interested in weather conditions summer, fall, winter or spring so long as there wasn't too nSuch snow to shovel any time during the year, so lie was for all tin: seasons alike—less snow shoveling. Twas Dwaine Lighter who specifically find with perfect U.S. language and grarnmer told me that at no time had he worried 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. ft Roy Chrislensen, who also lives on a corner with sidewalk territory extending south and also east, insisted that early spring was highly favored by him so long as it meant elimination of snowfalls, so to speak. And Fenrjan Christoffers is an earnest wisher for early spring because on account of he lias 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 bo that this year we are 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, and.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. And spring is the much more appreciated than is zero and snow, so to speak. And I am heartily in favor of spring taking 'over about the middle oi Donna Strayer Bride Jan* 29 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 Stir ay or, uncle of the bride, 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. February' and no more zero conditions to meet up with until, say next Christmas. There are many who somewhat like winjer 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 the 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 instiutions in the U. S. each year. • Bancroft By Mrs. Lawrence Bergman Mrs Roger Wilhelmi received word that her husband Roger left New York Thursday for England where he will be stationed with the Air Force.

A And you'll know what we nu-aii 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 offered in 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 the 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 V8 engine that's been lofted to new peaks of power and compression.
