UPP<» Pe» Moines Tuesday, March 27, 1956 CHRIS REESE A Llule oi this, a of That; Not Much ol Anything Yep, it was »he other day tha I received a letter from the gen who knows -tongue-lwistin a-plenty and I sure would -lik to print his name but he insist that I can only say that he is Wesley gent. And he sent me an other tongue-twister and which again proves that he sure know tongue-twisting a-plenty. This time he ''sent me the following tongue - twister: "Pickpocket picked Pete Pott's pockets, and pickpockets; picked Pete Pott's pickpockets' pockets, if pickpockets picked Pete Pott's pickpockets' pickpockets' pockets, J wonder if pickpockets pickec Pete Pott's pickpockets' pickpockets' pickpockets' pockets.' 'There, now you figure that one out and here's hoping I'll be able some day to print the name of this Wesley tongue-twisting gent. But you will admit that he sure knows tongue-twisting. But he admits that Wesley is not a tongue - twisting gents' town because on account of he's the only tongue-twister getting his mail there because he's on „ rural route but is a resident of Kossuth county. So, according to that he's a Kossuth county tongue-twister, so to speak. —o— Yep, J. Amos Carberry, of St. Ansgar, is now a member of the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers because on account of I mailed him a membership card the other day. And it was Fred Laabs, also of St. Ansgar, who recommended the membership of Brother Carberry because on account of it is claimed that J. Amos is a 100 per cent lover of the Java, that he drinks it almost by the gallon and that he even is known to take a waking hour at midnight and brews of Java that he may gulp, so to spesk, And it is claimed that J. Amos is one gent who knows his coffee brewing, that his coffee is most tasteful, delicious and gulpingly wonderful. Sure glad to get Brother Carberry into the coffee gulping association because on account .of he win prove a credit to the over 17,000 membership in the gulper club, so to speak. Yep, it was Tuesday of lasl week that is designated as the had much of spring weather anc maybe lie meant it to be Tuesday of this week or next week Aj, this time, Thursday of last week, there is nothing in looks or feelings or temperature that would stand for spring. With several inches of snow on thfc ground on the first day of spring it just seemed like it should have been called the first day of winter, so to speak. Of course the spring question varies each year, and I remember that on the first day of March some years ago the farmers in this section had finished seeding. But it's a cinch there has been no seeding done in these whereabouts this year. So, although the first day of spring has been here and gone, we are still enjoying the white snow aplenty and the lower thermometer readings, so to speak. —o— It was while I was enjoying the gulping of a cup of coffee one clay that I got a big kick out of several gents who were also enjoying the gulping and the subject of their visiting was Aliona street names. Does beat the band what gulpers will talk about and argue over while sip- )ing their Java. And this time t was the naming of Algona treets. Said one gent: "You enow it's easy for me to get los n this city because I, can emember street names like could numbered streets anc avenues. For instance, I countec the streets in Algona one tim and found there were 72 street bearing a name. None of them were known as avenues anc there was no north or south o STRICTLY BUSINESS "I wish to report a hostile ribbon clerkl" east or west designations and so the only way I know where am at or how far it is from the main drag to my home is by looking at a map of the city. And when I speak about a number on Jones street I might have reference to a number on Call street so jt is that I'd like to see Al- joria streets named and numbered. North and south streets named avenues and east and west as street and how much more simple that would make it for me as well as you, especially were we strangers and visitors here." And maybe he's got something there. At any rate-if the streets were numbered in one direction it would lessen the big number of names and so would be the easier to remember and find, even for those of us who live here as well as strangers or visitors, so to speak. first day of spring but there must have been some mistake made by the forecaster because CELLADORE Lucks county residents watched the TV show, "64,000 Question" with unusual interest recently. A contestant, Mrs Celladore Rattrap Poinsetta Houston Crockett spent her early childhood in the Melrose area. n account of we have surely not UDM Classifieds Pay Dividend, Mrs Trenary Is Portland Club Hostess, Mar 22 Portland — The Portland Progress Club met Thursday afternoon March 22nd at the home of Mrs Tom Trenary with Mrs Earl Shipler and Mrs Harold Becker assistant hostesses.
