Ravings by CHRIS REJBBG X tlltlo 61 Thli, a LtliU ^of TliBtt Mei Much At Anything It was Saturday afternoon that I done some arithmaticing regarding traffic on the main drag at times. So I stopped at the main intersection in Algona, Dodge and State and started to do some counting of traffic and the time was 3:46, or quarter of 4 bells. I counted every car or truck which crossed the inter*section in either direction and in 15 minutes there were 171 drivers and vehicles crossed that intersection. And that means that in an hour the number could reach 684, and so from 8 o'clock in the morning until the stores closed at 9:00 in the evening there could have crossed that intersection a total of 8,892 drivers in cars or trucks. Sure counts up. And supposing we arith- maticed for a week, a total of 62)244 would cross and for the month of 30 days the total would reach 1,867,320 and for the year at that rate the total Would reach ,22,407,840 and that's a lot of traf- YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT FOR HENRY S.

And just think of the gas involved if each car held 20 gallons, a total of 448,158.800 gallons and at 30c per gallon there would be spent ?1,444,704,000 pennies and that's not to be sneezed at. And just think of it, these figures only cover the cars which cross that intersection, and there are millions of other intersections and it just must be terrifically stupendous the gas and pennies involved in crossing intersections in this U.

Iheir Attorney — Clerk YUNGEBERG & QUINN — Auctioneers v Today, ihe 15th of May. is straw hat day. You are npt supposed to wear any headgear unless it is made of straw. And 1 have dug up my last year's straw headgear and I found it had sort of gone haywire, crooked and bent and 1 can't wear'it, so here goes for another straw hat to cover the couple of dozen locks I have, and between you and I and the lente post those hairs or locks are getting terribly lesser in num-. bers, so to speak. Ken Strahorn asked me how often did I wash my hair because if I washed my locks every other day they woula gain in growth and strength. And with me only taking a bath July 4 and Christmas I can see how I've helped lessen my locks, so to speak. Earl Sprague tells me that if I'd give my locks a sort of dampening every morning when I combed it that I'd find nice response in growing of locks,; so to speak. And Ted Vera said I should give my head and locks a real rubbing every morning, with both hands, and roughly, and shortly the bald spot, big as it is, would begin to lessen and he was sure there were hair seedlings on my pate and I should encourage their growth, so to speak. I was told by Ray Schil- riloeller that the sun's rays were Very nice and that they encour- tiged hair growing and so maybe I should -never wear any pate covering. However, today is straw hat day and I'm going to wear the straw at least for a couple of days and then go bare headed in the hopes' that my thinning locks may iaKe on som.. activity in the growing angle. Oh, by' the way, I always wear my su-aw on Sundays. —o—' Yep, it happened at an intersection in this town the other day. There was a driver from the north and a driver from the west and they reached the intersection line in their street at the same time, but they both stopped. But the driver from the north stepped on the gas and shot across the intersection even though he didn't have the right of way. In a situation of that sort remember that the driver on your.right has the right of way and you should wait until he has crossed the intersection. Yep, it's a part ol the traffic regulations, in a traffic situation of that kind the driver on your right, according ito:.~traffic regulations, has the right of way, and right to proceed, so to speak. The papers that I read of late, though they be filled with red hot stuff, engender in my heart some hate, 1 loudly cry "enough, enough." When o'er my coffee I would read of doings in the world at large and editors would have me heed their daily brainy word barrage, and while I wait upon my toast and sugar in my coffee stir I hunt for news from coast to coast, from southern palm to northern fir. I read how politicians prance in search of effervescent fame and how the marathon they dance to assuage the farmer's pain. I like to read of sundry dames who by the grape of beauty's charm, grab silly men, attach their names, and alimonies later farm. And so I would my breakfast eat the while I hunt for news of sorts arid faithfully throughout the sheet I read of daily work and sports. But lately all the papers print some politicians homely face, no matter at what page 1 squint, somebody's mug takes up the space Here's Dodo, said to know his oats, and all about the farmer's plan, and what to feed the hungry shoats and how to fertilize the land. And on another page I find some politician's ugly mug and in his eyes the lovelight shines, he'd save mo from a drunkard's jug. So politics, with all its bunk, fills up the paper.-; which I read and I'd be filled with plenty junk if polticians I would heeii. HAND Sgt.
