Phon* 52 1417 Commercial St. Call Attention To Vets Tax Change Several vital changes in the military tax exemption set-up, made by the 56th General Assembly of Iowa, and overlooked by some veterans to date, were .stressed this week by County Assessor Leo Imrnerfall. A complete run-down on military tax exemptions, which must be tiled on or before July 1 with the county assessor, appeared in the June 12 copy of the Upper Des Moines. All veterans should check it for aJl pertinent information. It was back in 1900 that Carrie Nation, anti-saloon agitator, began raiding bars with a hatchet. Decorates Day Room Wall With Oil Paintings When members of the (504th Communications Squadron of the U.S. .Air Force enter their clay room, ' in Ramstein, Germany, they hnve every reason to know about Algona, Iowa. A/3C Kenneth'Fox, son of Mr and Mrs Charles Fox of Algona, has just completed a painting that covers the entire wall of the day room depicting six life-like scenes framed together and tied with authentic Roman pillars, such as were used in Caesar's time. The gigantic wall - sized painting required six months of off-duty time to complete. During duty hours. Artist Fox is the Squadron's draftsman. Kenny has been at the Rams- tern base since June 30, 1955. Paints From Photos He used photos as his original model for his oil paintings, and the final results as recounted in a special story in the Air Force base paper, say that the viewer has the illusion of actually being in the scene. One tall scene of a Venice canal is so perfect in details and color, that one expects gondolas to move around the bend in the canal and disappear from sight. At the left of the picture, there are two little boys with curiosity written all over their faces. They look right at the viewer. The employment of little details such as this gives the painting its breath of life, the Ait Force paper says. Fox has always liked to draw. Even when he was a lad of three, drawing seemed to come natural to him. When he entered St. Cecelia's Academy in Algona, he also enrolled in a private school of art, and after his regular studies he had another long daily session at the art school. He graduated from St. Cecelia's in 1954, and immediately entered the service. '^ Since his duties do not permit extensive. travel, for extended, periods, he practices by copying pictures and post cards. He paints portraits from pictures. When not painting, he enjoys good music and dramatics. In a year his service will be completed and he intends to go to a good university with an excellent art course, and will also study dramatics and music in a serious way. Has Future Plans Kenny is saving his leave time, and before he' rotates home, plans to visit the Italian and French art centers and museums. "I don't want to dash down and take a quick look," he explains. "I want the time to sit there and absorb the feeling the masters put i.nto their work and study the use of color and technique." The 604th Squadron, to which he is attached, is know as "The Squadron of Champions", in the past based chiefly on athletic prowess. Kenny, however, is adding another championship —. in the field of art.
