UprJef D« Maine* • Tuesday, May 1, 1956 Algona Sailor To ierve On Iowa, U. S. Battleship ning. Yep, May is surely looked lorw*aifd 'to because it -is the turning^ point in weather preceding summer', Politically, some years ago, May was la popular month one Of primaries for all i parties i but these have now been mpved Into Junei However, May is still a .nice land dandy month, so to speak. We herald now with lusty lung that spring has sprang (or is i* sprung?): and coursing through our' every vein flows joyously out, ,blopd again. For months we've suffered winter breeze, have battled sundry sneeze and wheeze, "have shoveled furnace full 6f cjoa'l, have carried ashes tons uhtbld, , For months we've used both:"rub" and pills that we might battle fever's chilln, we've long and heavies unders worn we've "grip" and "colds" of terror shorn, snow and ice We've battled and sleet o'er Norfolk, Virginia— Thomas A. Ditsworth, above, Fireman Apprentice, son of Mr and Mrs Harry .Ditsworth of 119 South Heckart St., Algona, is now at the U.S. Naval Receiving Station, Norfolk, Va,, awaiting transfer to U.S.S. Iowa, a battleship. . The Norfolk Naval Receiving Station, Commanded by Captain J. C. G. Wilson, USN, processes approximately 8,000 men a month on their way to and from Naval activities all over .the world. Ravings CO by CHRIS REESE A Llillo of JTbii, a Llilla ol ThaJ;;lNol Much of Anything An added. Coffee Gulper dub has been organized in Algona and it seems the membership constitutes 100 per cent gulpers who hold coffee gulping tops in any and all activities of the human race, so to speak. And the new organization was promoted one day last week at the Superior 400 station on South Phillips during • the free serving of coffee, the issue of the day there, and at which time hundreds of cups of lovely Java was served to visitors. Elected president of the club was Vernon Dopp; vice president, Tarry Wallace; secretary, Russell Hurst; treasurer, Chuck Porter; members of the board, Larry Wilcox, Harold Carpenter, Roy Burns, Wayne Booth and Bob Burns. Buford Christensen was appointed general supervisor, and him being a Dane I claim he'll make a good one, so to speak. Yep, every one of the new members proved a real lover and taster and gulper of lovely coffee. And not to be outdone by way of coffee gulping the ladies also organized an auxiliary gulping club with Mrs Chuck Porter, president; Mrs Vernon Dopp, vice president; Mrs Tarry Wallace, secretary; Mrs Larry Wilcox, treasurer; the board of directors, Mrs Russell Hurst, Mrs Roy Burns, Mrs Wayne Booth, Mrs Buford Christensen, and Lydiu Carpenter. Agnes Wallace will be the publicity director. And don't forget that these organizations are 100 per com coffee lovers and 100 per cent eoffee gulpers, so to speak. —o— II was the other day lhal I mel up with a young Algona yent who really has a habit, so to speak, that of cigartt puffing. Yep, he's a fine young gent, lias always been a resident hero and he's popular, as well, but he sure has let the cig get the best of him. He doesn't just smoke one cigaret an hour, there are times when he takes on three or four and when the clay H done and it's time for Ihe nUlil's rest hi- has done away with nearly two packs, meaning an average of 30 cigs per day. And with cigs going now at 30c a pack lie has used up 45c of enjoyment daily, $3.15 per week, $163.50 annually. But look at the fun he gets out of it and the clouds of smoke with which he fills the air daily. For lighting up 30 cigs a day he smokes 10,950 each year. And these, laid end to end would reach a distance of 2,076 feet, a half mile and the ashes, if saved would fill nearly u quarter bushel. Yep, there's joy to many gents, young and old, in puffing the cig, so to speak. And here it is Ihe first day in May, a most popular month, so to speak, because of the c lubr;,- tion days in the month. It i.s a month of May baskets, and in the older days May baskets wore really something. The modern folks do not take up May basket- ing ds was the case some years back. And another day in May is that known and celebrated as ''Mother's Day," falling on Sunday, the 13th. And it must be admitted that "Mother's Day" is sincerely observed by people of all classes. And then, of course, ^emorial.Day, on the 30th. Taken generally,' the month of May is a popular OIK.'. ,'iinl it ,<DI I of brings in the summer atmosphere begin- treacherous walk and drifted street,' and we have sniffled, sneezed and coughed as winter's dregs we deeply quaffed. And now with Joyous hearts we sing, with open arms we welcome spring, each day we rise to greet the sun, its wondrous change to earth begun. We deeply breathe refreshing air, we hea^ God's songsters everywhere; inspired by beauty which we find we gaily face our daily grind. We marvel at this wondrous thing, the advent of a glorious spring, ,the rays of sun or pattering rain brings nature's beauty back again. No longer do we wheeze or sneeze, forgotten is the icy breeze; we live the joyous minutes, hours, the warmth of sun, aye. gentle showers. We herald now with lusty lung that spring has sprang (or is it sprung?) and coursing through our- every vein flows joyously bur blood again.

Hali-Strahorn Hardware Today's kitchen Is an all-pur pose room no' longer set apar irom the rest of the house. I serves not only as a food pre paration point but as £ dining entertaining and play area More than ever before, the kit chen is truly the heart. of thi home—the fount from which al ' blessings flow for the whoii family. The new Mtchen is all things to all women (and men!) —- qooking center, gathering ^place office, sewing room, laundry The many activities that now take place in the kitchen hark- en back to the old-fashionec kitchen where Grandma reigned. Here the whole family would gather, here they spen most of their time all their lives through. The whole history of, a family's lifetime could . be encompassed within the four walls of the kitchen. Here the children were born, lived most of their lives and spent their happiest and most productive hours. Ne'w Kitchen Ideas. In view of-the modern kitchen's many-faceted personality and the activities that take place' there, both storage ,anc work surfaces are usually at a premium. To help solve these problems, many new ideas have been developed that make the most of the limited kitchen space in the average home. Manufacturers have now come up with a "rolling counter," for sxample, that serves either as a kitchen table or as a cart. And t has the added advantage of oeing adjustable in height — from 27 to 37 inches—by a crank ocated under the top. This brings the work surface to any desired level. It can be brought flush with the permanent counter, which is usually around 36 inches. Or it can be lowered for sit-down work or to dining table height. The cart's rubber-tired wheels lock in place to provide a firm surface that can be eaten on, worked on, used as phone or sewing table (one of these tables even ' has a built-in niche for a ' sewing machine which ! pops up when needed, is hidden from sight when not). Two place settings can be laid WORK Of All Kinds We do all types of Residential and Commercial Electrical Work and Contracting. Let Us Estimate For You. ALGONA ELECTRIC CO.

These rolling counters make for greater storage efficiency also, -since the total wall from fTbor to ceiling can be used for storage without waste space between hanging cupboards and base cabinets. Another new idea for solving the dual problem of storage ancl work - or - dining surface is a breakfast nook where both table and benches are based on steel storage cabinets. A. flush 'door or a piece of plywood covered with Formica can •be set atop a 29" cabinet to create the multi-purpose table; and any number of smaller cabinets can be lined up to provide a base for the desired seating arrangement. Steel, ca b i n e t s, incidentally, are available in a choice of colors- to mix-or-match with today's smart, colored ranges and refrigerators. Happy Harmony.

Panels of three- eighths inch thickness come in knotty pine, bleached and, dark walnut, bleached mahogany, fir plywood and other simulated wood finishes achieved by photographic and printing processes that reproduce the wood finish. The panels are four feet wide and eight feet long. The wallboard is fireproof be•cause of its gypsum core and expansion and contraction of the material due to temperature changes is negligible. Knotty pine effects have square edges which may be butted together to'. form a fine line that, seems to become part of the wood pattern.

Special nails match the partic- ujar woodgrain finish and may be driven in with a rawhide mallet or padded or plastic- head hammer. You'll 'need level framework. That, means studs or furring strips spaced 16 inches on centers. Nailing begins at the. center of the board and works outward, nails being spaced about 6 to 8 inches apart, and not closer than % inches from the edge of the board. The board must be supported firmly against the frame while you. are nailing so • that when nails are being : driven in with the right hand, the board must be pressed hard with the left. The nail will not draw the board up. * .' , These panels may be cut with a saw or scored and snapped. A sharp knife may be used for scoring the board. The panel finish may be protected by occasional waxings. Some, handymen prefer applying a protective coat of white shellac firsthand ;then a coat pi wax for a dull finish or coat of clear varnish for a' glossy finish, ^he surface may be kept clean by simply going over, it with a damp cloth. Once the paneling is up, the lady of the house can take over, adding decorative notes to give it a cozy -atmosphere. Inexpen- sive'fiber rugs may go tp the floor, some of the attic furniture might be painted in chic colors to lend a gay, effect.

Buying Right Wood for the Job Can Often Save Money The right kind of w6od is important economically as well as for appearance and durability .n any home, modernizing or lome handyman, project. The fascination of an all-clear piece of lumber is so great that many home craftsmen just beginning to work~ with wood are often tempted to- s'psnd twice as much as they need to spend. Here is an example of the wrong'way to buy wood: : Johnny Do-It-Yourself r goes to a lumber yard, buys a '12- foot board of "B ffnd Better' grade, straps it to his ; car and takes it home. He saws-lit into four 3-fo6t lengths to nrrake. some basement -shelves for storing canned goods and odds and ends overflowing from the kitchen. • •'•• •'• ,' : Jchnny has made several mis-) takes. A " "Common" grade of lumber would have been' all right for basement shelves. He might have found a bargain in "shorts"' at- the lumber yard— just the right length for his shelves anii " they would have been easier to handle in his car. Or he could have bought some boards of one of the lower grades .of; "Common 1 ', fsawed out enough perfectly gpod. x pieces for his shelves and have some smaller pieces left : over to start a little lumber "yard Of'rjis own for his home workshop or future jobs. CORRECT LUMBER .buying procedure is to get -the right ade for the right use. "A" and "B" Select : grades, sold as "B'Jmd Better" in many species, are used for the highest quality of work requiring softwood lumber, where the finest appearance is required for interior and exterior trim, paneling, flooring, cabinet work, ceiling, partition, beveled siding and drop siding. "B and Better" is often used where the job is to receive a natural finish. "C" and "D" Delect grades are considered' best suited for high class paint finishes but th'ey also take natural finishes well. They are often used by the home craftsman for cabinet work used in a formal decorative scheme. In all of the "Select" grades of lumber, the markings in the wood do not affect the appearance of the finish when painted. When given a natural finish, these grades provide more formal effects than any of the ".Common"- grades. The "Common" .grades of lumber are used for general utility and construction. The better "Commons" can be substituted for "Selects" for nearly all types of use—siding, shelving, paneling. They are used for painted or natural finishes, starring in the latter role because of the decorative character of the knots and other markings. In buying 2 by 4s nnd other pieces of framing lumber, -the classification is softwood dimension. For most species, the grades are designated as No, 1, 2 and 3. Appearance is usually a secondary consideration. G r a ring is based on characteristics of the wood which will affect strength, stiffness, nailing qualities and general suitability. Hardwood for furniture, paneling and other fine projects, is grided generally according to ihe amount of clenr faced area in the piece, rather than by size or number of growth features BEST BUYS IN TOWN! 324 New Colors For Your Selection!
