PAGE FOUR The Papers Say Up at Swoa City tho streets are being graveled, and one oC the gravel-haulers is a woman—Mrs. Nick Burgess, Armstrong. But that's nothing: look at the scads of women out at the Pioneer corn plant and the hemp plant! — <t—' That Blue Earth peepcr-panty story this columnist wrote for the Advance the other week, using facts from the Blue Earth papers, was reprinted in the M. C. G.-G. under a Blue Earth date-line and has since been going the rounds that way in other papers. (But who the heck cares for credit?) The Spencer mayor and some other North Iowa mayors proclaimed Oct. 8-14 as National Business Women's Week, but Mayor Kohlhuns didn't do a thing about it. (How about a protest by the Wn-tv,n-ye duly.') Doggone! Here's a ration- board warning in a non-Algona Kossuth newspaper reminding holders of the new gas books that they now have to keep a mileage record. Ten to one, it's been forgotten by some !i5 per cent of drivers. (But how in Sam Hill is an overworked driver whose trips are mostly a halt' dozen-or- so blocks in the Algona biz district going to find time to keep such a record?) , .'jf , Well, in case you missed the Saddle club 'rodeo' show in the Evans pasture near Svvca City Oct. 15, you really missed something—if it came off as advertised. The Herald said that some women were going to try riding wild steers. Editor Gilbert Knudson, of the Em'burg Democrat (his bro.-in- law Wade Sullivan claims the 'K' isn't pronounced), had an editorial rhapsody recently on church chicken dinners. He wants MacKinley Kantor, Ruth Suckow, or somebody to write a story centering around such a happy event. (And it could be done.)

Kollasch, WhjtUpmpre,. that he would soon be on his way home, and it is thought that he is now en route. He had been in India on army flight service and he completed 50 missions. The young man has been overseas since July 1.942, and he has re- .ceiv.ed an air medal and a presU dential citation.

G.-G. a story from Ledyard about efforts there to get a Ledyard stop included on the M. C. to Estherville proposed new bus line. The story was written in the Advance shop from information supplied by a Ledyard -correspondent. (But no kick; this column, too, has to be filled .somehow, and it's all rewritten from what "The Papers Say.") — w— Editor W. F. Miller has of late been getting out his Livermore Gazette despite poor health. This column forgets how old he is, but he's somewhere in his 80's and is the whole staff in his shop. His editorials arc among the most 'readable' to be found in country newspapers, and it has been said that he composes them as he sets them right on the linotype. The boys in France will be reading this week's Advance- about Thanksgiving day. Anyway Clarence M. Bruns wrote Editor Ray Sperbeck, of Swea City, that it takes that long for the Herald to get to him. (Wonder how long it takes for Iowa papers to reach our boys in the Aleutians, New Guinea, India, etc. Maybe six months would be a good guess in some cases.)

WALKER DAIRY HERD, OF SWEA CITY, TESTED Swea City, Oct. 31—The dairy herd of Ralph Walker Jr. was recently classified on dairy characteristics of the cows. This is one of the first herds in Kossuth to be put through such a test. The tests were under auspices of the Holstein- Friesian Association of America and -its Iowa branch. In such tests cows are rated poor, fair, good, good plus, very good, or excellent, and of 14 tested in the Walker herd, three were good, ten good plus very good. Men present to observe the proceedings including H. W. Norton Jr., Brattleboro, Vt, secretary of the Holsteinjriesian association, and Wm. Diamond, Waterloo, secretary of the Iowa branch also interested dairymen from' this and other communities and vetenarjan J. A. Sanftner, Swea City. The classifications in the Walker herd were made by Claire Miller, Medina, <X and the herd is one of seven associations classified in .the nation. PASTOR ATTENDING ALL-WEEK CHICAGO D. M.

How would you feel if you were a prisoner in a German stalag who hadn't heard from home in maybo months, but finally got 42 letters in a single clay's mail? Well, that's the way Leonard Appclquist undoubtedly felt when he last wrote home, according to the Swea City Herald. —#— The national mail force bottom to top is strong for the Christmas package idea for the soldiers and WACs, of course, but you can't blame Yin for some ardent cussing recently. Take that Ksther- ville to Em'burg star route m;m, for exanvjle. Every day he was loaded cellar to garret even after the seat lie wasn't using was removed. 'And imagine what a mail car looked like at the end of its run. A recent New York dispatch reported arrival of a lon« train of nothing but over- son Barracks, St. Louis, Sunday on rotation furlough, and after report there would come to Lakota, where a brother, Jacob Peterson, resides. That the youth had seen, plenty of service was indicated by the fact that he was credited with 54 months, or 4Vz years, in the Southwest-Pacific. Two Couples Feast on Canadian Goose Paul Wille, Ambrose A. Call state park custodian, and Kermit Sotchell, local game warden, shot a Canadian goose Monday while hunting pheasants. It is not known which one did the actual shooting, but the bird weighed 7'-j Ibs., so both families joined for dinner last night at the Setch- eli home. NOTICE OP PROBATE OF WILL No 5217.
