Ravings CO by CHRIS HEESE A tllH* 61 fW». • of Thiii Not Much cJ Yep, 1 was ens of Ihe many 'visitors at West Bend Centennial last Thursday and the cen- teJnnial celebration proved a plenty dandy and good one as put on by the West Bend cen- tehnial program group. Yep, the celebration committee group sure know their celebration angles because on account of the program of the two days proved highly informative and entertaining, so to speak. And the West Bend Whisker Club has been one outstanding organiza* ti6n which has provided enthusiasm and entertainment pro the centennial. Yes, bewhiskered faces have been taken on by the West Bend gents as an accompanied gesture toward putting on a top centennial celebration. And West Bend gents have proved that they have plenty first class facial hair growths, real whiskers, siteh as grown and presented by the gents of a century ago, so to speak. And facial bewhiskering growth has been put on by the West Bend gents since the first of the year and many of the West Behti gents sure show a dandy and peachy growth of real whiskers. : A group of 23 of th« West Bend bewhiskered gents photographed shows up the most splendid accumulation of whisker faces in West Bend. And so was organized the West Bend Whisker Club, the chairman of which was Bob Jones, and members in the club were Richard Brown, Duane Allen, Jack Cole, Elmer Cole, William Campbell, Delbert Bern- \nghaus, "Salty" Harms, Lee Hecker, Henry Harms, Ben Banwart, Larry Allen, Louis Hendrickson, Bill Peterson, Elvin Rolf- con, August Schafer, Henry Dahlhauser, Marvin Bell, Art Banwart, Don Steil, Gordon Anderson, Paul .Dahlhauser and Don flchafer. Twelve of the bewhiskered gents had developed mustache and chin whiskers, two of them just mustaches and the rest of "them just chin whiskers. And I admit that in the case oi every one of the 23 whisker growers their facial hair growth tvas surely pifty and tops in manly facial "appearance, so to speak. I quizzed several of Ihe West Bettd gents as to their whisker growth and they agreed that*it waK no trick' to grow whiskers, in; fact: Bob Jones, Duane Allen, Jack Cole, William Campbell, Delbei't Berninghaus, "Salty" Harms, Lee Hecker, Henry Harms, Louis..Hendri'ckson, Bill Peterson, Elmer Rolfson, Henry Dahlhaus'er, Art Banwart, Don Steil, and Paul Dahlhauser, all growing whiskers and mustaches, all agreed that there was no more serious effort in growing mustache and whiskers together, didn't seem to take any more effort or blood, hence they just allowed both mustache and whiskers to unify in whisker production, so to speak. And they all agreed that with both whiskers and mustche on the facial territory there was less of shaving needed and so much time in face attention was eliminated. And rjjzjor blades have been given considerable rest during the cen^ tftnnial whisker growth period, hfct Bob Jones told me tnat there was a general shaving campaign held over the weekend follow- i6g the centennial; celebration and whiskers arid mustaches in West Bend , show a decided s{ump now, so to speak. . it)* ttftturf, of 100 year birthday of West Bend was properly celebrated and the two days brought many hundreds of visitors to West Bend and the program and entertainment furnished by the West Bend celebrants proved highly enjoyabte to the citizens of the neighborhood and to the many visitors from near and far neighborhoods, so to speak. And now West Bend has reached the century existence, one hundred years, and West Bend has proved itself a dandy good town in every respect, progressive in all good town home and business .efforts, and citizens of West Bend continue to live,in that spirit of progress and good home town progress. I tip my hat io the citizens oi West Bend for their splendid ability and effort to make and to keep West Bend an outstanding credit to the county and stale in which it exists. Yes, I was a visitor there one day of the centennial celebration and West Bend citizens sure proved themselves tops in the welcome they gave me, as they also extended to all visitors. And I am sure that in the coming one hundred years the town of West Bend will continue to progress and remain the classical good town, in its county and stated such as it has proven during the past century—one hundred years.
