favlngs A tUtl* At thU, * tltil* ol fMI; Not Much el Yep, I'm still in faror of renaming and nuitibering the streets in Algeria. As modern and popular a city as is Algona the street layout in this town are so old-fashiohed it becomes headachy, so to speak. There would be eliminated a lot of names for the streets if the north and south streets were numbered instead of named. For instance the east and west names would remain as is with State street the center. Then all the names of the other streets would be changed to numbered street north of State and numbered avenues to south of States. For example — Minnesota would be changed to North 1st street north of State and South 1st avenue south of State. Do you get it? Wooster would be No. 2nd street north of State and South 2nd avenue south of State. And so on east and west the numbers would rise and so it would be easier to remember and find a numbered street as companed. with a named street, of which there are many. Take a street map of Algona and look it over and check the names and numbers of streets and you can see what a swell deal the renaming would mean, so to speak. ,_. Q r ,. li would be much easier to count four streets to No. 4th. street than to try to remember what the name used to be. And that goes for the other areas as well. You can remember and count to for instance 6 streets from the loop much more surely than you can remember the name of streets, so to speak. So here's hoping that some day soon a committee will be made up to take care of the proper changing of names and numbers of streets in Algona. And I'm sure you will ' appreciate the changing and from then on there will be no losing yourself in the best city in north central Iowa. It was one day last week that t was asked how come I didn't visit Ringsted once in a -while be- on aetounl ot that .lov»ft Is one Dane town in north central Iowa that really is a Dane town, Arid 60 1 done some fcrRhrMtkittg in the numbers entftred- in the Fenlon telephone book, and I really did find that Ringsted leans' toward Denmark iri-pftpula- tioit 'because on accotiflt of 1 found there were 125 Danish names listed in the directory. And one of these days Ijitafi on Visit* ing Rifigsled, the tSaftish. neigh* boring town to Fentoft. And it may be that I'll find "Forgangen Nat Vor Sultne Kat" is a, favorite arid popular song and tune itt the Ringsted neighborhood. My arithmaticing of Danish names in the Ringsted list^ showed there were 13 Christensefi gents, nnd there were 9 Christiansen gertts, and there were 10 Hansen gents, and there were 9 Henriksen gents, and there were 5 Jacobsen'gents, and there we're 24 Jensen gents. And there were 3 Johansen and 3 Jorgensen gents listed, and there were 8 Larsen gents, and there were 4 Madsen gents, and there were 17 Nelsen gents, and 8 Nielsen gents, and 20 Petersen gents, and 7 Sorensen gents, and then there were 4 Ostergaards, and 5 Jacobsens, and a lot of single entered Danish names. And it sure is an indication that Denmark is well represented in the Ringsted neighborhood. And' I sure could work up a big and Splendid chorus in the Ringsted neighborhood to sing "Forgangen Nat Vor Sultne Kat" judging by the number of Danish namesflist- ed, so to speak. «— O»~— Yep, we a re experiencing spring now even though it is middled up with cold and near winter days at times. The first day of spring was on the 20th of March and spring will give up for summer on the 21st of June and that day I celebrate my birthday and summer takes over, so to speak. I agree with you, we've had some lousy and winter days so far in this year's spring. And we've not had a single drop of rain, in fact it just seems like we've had no spring. But this is a year of politics because on account of we'll enjoy and experience a primary election within a couple of months. And politics have started to take hold and now the republicans are standing for republican activities and democrats are standing for Even When The Weather's Dry ... IT PAYS TO FERTILIZE! This is a "dry" spring — and many farmers are delaying their fertilizer program this year "until we get rain." THIS IS A MISTAKE I Fertilizer applied NOW is your best hedge against loss in yield during a dry growing season — regardless of whether or not you have moisture at this time. Actual records prove it. .Here are the Facts: In 1955, a test at Iowa State College showed the following results: Corn (no fertiliser) 43.8 bu. per acre Corn (40 Ibs. Nitrogen) 73.8 bu. per acre Corn (80 Ibs. Nitrogen) 83.9 bu. per acre In 1953, also a dry year, farmers who fertilized were able to get 60-bushel yields. Farmers who did not fer- tilise often had to settle for as little as 20 bushels per acre. democratic, activities and speeches arfe slatting to he the rnain interest in tfve approaching 6am- paigns. And this is one year when voters are going to get b'ut and mark and scratch ballots to; beat the ban'd, according to he'ar> say, so to,speak. y .Yep, I'm still; a democrat anti 1 propose to. matk the squares on the democratic ticket and, according to hearsay, many others will do likewise, so it seems.
