He had been in the European war zone some three years, and this is his first furlough. 1945 Coats off and buckle into it. I have resolved not to be any 'better or any worse than I was in 1944. The same old Jimmie Neville. Always ready to sell a pair of shoes, take a drink or take a second look at a pretty girl. Born from a poor fairly honest, hard-working family, I was taught. to believe that one man is just as good as another, if not a little bit better. So I treat everybody just alike. St. Peter has me charged up with a lot of faults and sins. I can not find much to offer on the credit side of the ledger. My life before coming to Algona was mostly spent in just having a good time. Like many other young men I wasted my time day-dreaming. Later on I found I would have to begin at' the bottom if I was ever going to get anywhere. Since coming to Algona 40 years ago I have put a few things on the credit side of the ledger. The first gravel put on p, county road in Kossuth was the mile and one-half I put on from Yankee Ridge to the railroad track. I put alfalfa on the map. They said it would not grow in this country, but they are all raising it now. In a voting contest I gave Union township a bran new alfalfa drill. I had yearly purebred pig gales; also raised purebred Shorthorn cattle. In town I built three new homes, a new store building, and fixed up several run-down places. In all, I put in eight furnuces in Algona. With me it is Algona first and Jimmie Neville second. Algona, Mason City, and Fort Dodge form a triangle. We have the best trading territory and more of it than either of the others. More dinner pails is what we want. I would like to see a canning factory and a cotton work glove factory come to SEXTON It is the common people that make a town. They spend their money. They buy groceries, shoes, and clothing. They have to have a home in which to raise their families. They are the cogs in the wheel of prosperity.
