And it's a cinch that we have all had enough of this North Pole weather hanging on here within two days of April Fool's day. Ahd it was last Thursday, March 29th, that we enjoyed (?) a near blizzard for .several hours. Snow covered ground and temps dropping and dropping. 1 just sometimes wonder what we 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 and the outlook 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. Nope, I don't like January weather this time of year. Do you? And, I repeat, the fuel cost 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. 46th YEAR Recently, the Harvey Wheelers of Granger renewed their subscription to the weekly Madrid Register-News. It was the 46th renewal for the couple. •THIS PLOOR PAINT LASTS TWICE AS LONG!

CO. It was Just a week ago thai the U.D.M. printed a new telephone bunk tot Fentdn and I glanced through it to find the number of my nationality, Ihe Danes, having phones in Fenlon. I had always been under the impression that Fenton had quite a few Dane names, so to speak. There was Arnold Hansen, Adolph llnnsen, Mrs Mary Hansen, Otto Jensen, P. H. Jensen, Carl Mortensen, , Fred Mortensen, Arnold Nielsen, Curtis Olsen, Ole Pederson, and Oscar Soronson, 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 arid hold a "sang test" 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. Yes, there are several names in the book which'sound Scandinavian— like but I don't know whether they are Swedish or Ndtwegian or Dane. However, Fenton has a nice leaning, in population toward., the Scandinavian angle and the Danes are well represent* eel. And that's that. •—o— And in line telephone book there wefe several names which were listed in numbers reaching a near dozen. For instance, B. G. Berkeland. Robert Berkeland, Mrs Andrew Berkland, Bennie Berkland, David Berkland, Ernest Berkland, Lloyd Berkland, Martin Berkland, Melvin Berkland, Oscar Berkland and Ruben Berkland, 11 ot them. Then there also were 8 Bierstedts, Alfred and Clarence Bierstedt, Emil and Ferdinand Bierstedt, Gustavo 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 Arthur and Ernest Mueller, F. F. Mueller, Sr. and Jr., Franklin and Lawrence Mueller, Roy Mueller and Mrs theo. Mueller. And the Voigt folks were hot so slow with seven listed: Arthur and C. C. Voigt, Mrs Carrie Voigt, Dale and Merle Voigt, arid Paul and Wm. *Voigt. But the Weisbrod name topped all others with 11 and they were Charles and Dale Weisbrod, Donald and E. C. Weisbrod, Ed and Lester Weisbrod, Lyie 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—* There w«re sevefal names listed in the Fenton directory which reached above ten in the number of letters, and naturally they take more ink when being signed on that check, so to speak. For instance there are Ronald and Roy Chrischilles, 12 letters, mora ink, Win. Householder 11 letters, John Laubenthal 10 letters, Homer Matthiesen 10 letters, Albert Schwaiteenbach 13 tetters and the longest in the book, Don Steinberger 11 letters, Lawrence •Ullensvang 10 letters, Fred Weirv- betger 10, Fred Wessendorf 10, and Otto Wichtendahl 11. . So you can see where there are Fenton names in the book which take up of ink from the fountain pen, so to speak. As for names of four letters there were Wayne Barr, Robert Burt, Glen Gage, Amer Cody, Earl Dean, John Fuhr, Herman Gade, Arnold Juhl, Mrs Amanda Kerrj, Lloyd Kern, Carl Odin,, and Donald Root, an even dozen. 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 1 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.
