Fool's da$ v And it's a cinch that we have all had enough t>f thls^jSJortk Pole weather hanging orHiere within two days of April Fool's day. And It was last Thursday, March 29th ( that We enjoyed (?) a hear blizzard for several hours. SnoW covered ground and temps dropping and dropping. I just sometimes wonder what wa .have done to the weather man that he' spreads this sort of weather upon us. Yep, we've had several nice* days the past Week ahd the-out-?' look for spring weather was good enough that a lot of we gents changed to lighter underwear and the next day we just shivered and shivered, so to speak. Nojfc, I don't like January 1 weather this time ,of year. Do you? "And, I repetjf, the fuel dost just about drives a guy nuts. And following a nice decent winter, it just seems we can't take this cold, cold stuff the weather man is handing us now. It was just a week ago that the •V.nMi printed a new, . bboit: for Fen tori and 1 through it to find the number of my nationality, the Danes, having phdnes in Fenton. 1 had always been under the impression that Fenton had quite a few Dane names,'so to speak. There was" Arnold Mansen, .Adolph Hansen, Mrs Mary Hansen, Otto Jensen, P. H. Jensen, Carl Mpr- tensfin, Fred Mortensen, Arnold Nielsen, Curtis Olsen, Ole Pederson, and Oscar Sovenson, all names spelled like the Danes. And I suppose they are Danes and one of these days I hope to visit Fenton and' maybe I can get these Danes together and we can organize and hold a "sang fest" and put over a Dane concert featuring "Forgangen Nat Vor .Sultne Kat" that famous' Danish operatic tuneful vocal nUmber which is outstandingly Danish both in fine verse and swell musical tune, so to speak: Yea, there are several names in the book which;sound Scandinavian— liR|; :but- It don't, know whether they are Swedish of Norwegian or Dane.' However, Fenton has a nice leaning: in population to- Wardv- the Scandinavian angle and the Danes are well represented; And that's that. AftS in the telephone bo6k there were several names which w^ere listed in numbers reaching a near, dozen. For instance, B. G. Berkeland, Robert Berkeland, Mrs Andrew Berkland', Bennie Berkland, David Berkland, Ernest Berkland, 'Lloyd Berklahd, Mar-, tin' ,Serklarid, Melvin Berklahd; Oscar Berkland and Ruben Berk-land,-11 of them. Then there also were 8 Bierstedts, Alfred and Clarence Bierstedt, Emil and Ferdinand Bierstedt, Gustaye and Hilbert Bierstedt and Walter and Wilfred Bierstedt. And the name Of* Luedtke 'was lined up eight times, Art. and Donald Luedtke, Ervin and Herman' Luedtke. Marvin and Reuben Luedtke and Mrs Ben Luedtke. And the Muel- ler name was listed eight times With Afthttf ahd jErneSt Mueller» F.*. Mueller, Sf.'a«d Jf.* Frank* liri and Lawrence. Mueller, Roy Mueller and Mrs f heo. Mueller, And the Volgt; folks were not so slow.with seven listed: Arthur and C. C. Voigt, Mrs Carrie Voigt, Dale and Merle Voigt, and Paul and Wm. \Voigt. But the Weisbrod name topped dll others With .11 and they were Charles and Dale Weisbrod, Donald and E. C. Weisbrod, Ed and Lester Weisbrod; Lyle and L. J. Weisbrod. Ralph and William Weisbrod and Mrs Elmer Weisbrod, and so I judge -that name to be .the most popular in the book. ' ••' —o— •'.•«.. Jhere were several,names listed in the Fenton directory' which reached above ten in the number of letters, and naturally Jhey take more ink when being signed on that check, so to speak. For instance there are Ronald and Roy Chrischilles, 12,letters, mora ink, Wm. Householder 11 letters, John . Laubenthal 10 letters, Homer Matthjesen 10 letters, At- arid the ioftgesiin the bbofe ffott Steinberger dl.'. lettersL ^wrenbe Jjllertsvarig 10 letters, Fred Wein- feger 10, $te&. Wessendorf. 10. and Otto Wich'teridahl 11, -: So you can see where there argFen' ton names in the" book whichtake up of ink front the fountain pen, so to speak. As for names of four letters there . were Wayne Barr, Robert' Burt, JSlen Gage, Ahier Cody, Earl Deafi, John Fuhr, Herman Gade, Arnold Juhl, Mrs Amanda Kei-n, Lloyd Kern, Carl Odin,/j»nd ; Donald, Root, an eVen dozert." And there were Lawrence Alt,.Martin Ohm and Otto Ohm listed, three gents with only three letters to use up fountain pen ink, / so to speak. Maybe you won't give a hang about printing these names from the Fenton telephone book but I got a big kick out of hunting and checking the length of names in the book which represents a dandy good town in Kossuth, Fenton, so to speak.
