(#,' , r-f '- KOSSUTH COtml?V AbVANCfc, ALQONA, tOWA RAY M. WATSON IN LETTER FROM SAN FRANCISCO Ray M. Watson, 1055 Fell St., San Francisco 17, writes under date of last week Wednesday that he is "still enjoying the weekly visits of the two Algona papers though familiar names are becoming scarce. Howeyer. we do find much of great interest. Your Long. Long Ago column is a treat always, as is Charley Klamp's farm page also. But we wish you could get a correspondent for the Irvington neighborhood again. We have missed Mrs. K. P. Roney's column. "We noted in the .Upper Des Moines an interesting story (in the July 25 issue) dealing with the Irvington postoffice; but the correspondent erred in the statement that C. J. Dutton and H. A. Lewis served longest as postmaster. My wife's commission was dated September 10, 1921, and she resigned May 31, 1943, so that her tenure was -'nearly 22 years. "San Francisco is still suffering from a housing shortage, lack of men to man the vast shore jobs. Women are doing a great work in all types, and race or color is no handicap in any vocation here. "On July 15, I signed up with the U. S. Coast Guard in the ' Voluntary Port Security Service, j and will serve two six-hour | hitches a week, assisting in guarding ships and cargoes on j the Bay area. "We felt the recent Port Chicago explosion in our apartment, j though it was 40 miles away. "Our boys in the service are j still in the same areas—Bob, who is in the navy, on the USS Massachusetts, and Paul, of the army i engineers, in northern Australia, i Bob recently spent 23 days here,: his first leave in two years in the j •South Pacific. TWO ALGONIANS FROM OVERSEAS GET FURLOUGHS S-Sgt. Russell Crapser, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Crapser, who came recently for a 21-day furlough with' his parents here, was ordered to Fort Sam Houston, Tex., for reassignment, after 26 1 /:; months in Alaska, but is now at j Aberdeen, Md., where 'he is studying tank and truck motors at a motor school. The young man is" married,'and his wife, who has been living j with her parents at Brilt, plans i to join him as soon as living' quarters at Aberdeen can be obtained./ . ;..; First Sgt. Charles J. Has- |ings is at home ,on furlough, vis- }Ung; his wife, the • formar Eva j Shackclford, and his 14-moriths j "daughter Dixie Lee, whdm he: hajs seen for the first time. '.; j The sergeant, who sa'w §2 ! "months of active service: in ths I Mediterranean area, is to report i to Miami, Fla., in September for reassignment. His wife will accompany him, but the baby will remain with her grandparents till it is learned whether he is 1o stay in this country or 'be sent overseas again. EDITOR'S ANCIENT CAR FIGURES IN A HOT WEATHER TALE A comody of errors sent Sheriff Cogley, his deputy 'Marc Moore, the city officers, and state patrolmen scurrying around in search of the Wm. C. Dewel 1937 Ford Friday. Some weeks previously rear turning signals had been ordered installed at Kent's. The garage boys caught up with the job Friday, and an emp'oye got the car without notice. Word was, however, duly phoned from the garage, but \va.s misunderstood, and a theft report was made to the sheriff. Another phone message when the news reached the garage set the matter straight. The sheriff's office is now trying to make T. T. Herbst, who holds the theft insurance, "wood up" on a promised gift on recovery of the car, and Mr. Dewel is ruminating on whether he gained or lost, in view of all the circumstances.

"Can yon simplify the course?" he asked. "My boy will never take all that in. He wants to get through by a shorter route." "Certainly," answered Garfield, "I can arrange for that. It all depends on what you want to make of him. When God wants to make an oak, He takes a hundred years; but when He wants to make a squash, He requires only two months."
