PAGE SIX KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA, IOWA TUESOAY, OnlyYesterday Adyan,ces of Doc. 12-19, 1929. Eva W. Streit was the Advance's society editor. (What did .the 'W' stand for'.') Ask County Engineer Smith who she is now. Does Mrs. H. W. Pletch (Helen Falkenhainer) still go to-ound lo bridge parties and win all Hie first prizes. (She had done it twice at parties in the same week in early December If) years ago.) ;|(. Trade Holtzbauer, whom you see now at the Buchanan abstract office, didn't live here then. She knows about California's "unusual weather," for she was a stenographer at Los Angeles. Sunday movies had been shown here for the first time, and the Call was crowded with the unrighteous. —#— Can Mary Jane Hofius still do j her half of that dance she and Evelyn All did at a Union No. 4 school's Christmas program Friday evening, Dec. 29, 1929.? (She ; is Mrs. Knut Oppedahl, Ottosen, < now, and her husband's hospital; unit may have had to pick up in \ a hurry and move p. d. q. when the Nazis recently busted buck into Belgium.) —«— Even then—back in 1929—C. R. LaBarre and Chas. Nicoulin were on speaking terms. They had made a trip to Freeport, 111., together. ,t£ Do any of the GeUmans still live up in northwest Kossuth? And is John Gettman still around? John was saying goodnight to a girl up there, and it took longer than his horse thought was necessary, so lie (the horse) went home, drawing the vacant buggy behind him, and John got plenty of exercise in a UNION M.&D.

'Wes' Dutlon has quit worrying j aboul his Ford coupe which wasr stolen from its parking spot beside the Methodist church. (Walking home, he found it where joy-! riders had left it.) I —. ft: — You may have forgotten that. in mid-December, 1929, Betty! Murtagh was Pocahontas, Bob LaBarre was Powhatan, Jean Murtagh was a fairy, Eleanor Thorpe was a sleeping beauty, and Geneva Scharlach was an angel. Anyway that's what they were in school and church Christmas entertainments. (Geneva has quit being an angel and sells you poslage slamps now.) —*— Parl of L. E. Linnun's forgoticn past is the fact that in 192') he was national president of his Phi Kappa college fraternity. The Advance for Dec. 19, 1929, boasted that it was the largest issue—20 pages—of an Algona newspaper ever printed without some kind of promotion campaign. (But it wasn't the largest ever printed WITH a promotion campaign; thai one was back in the halcyon inflation days of the first World War when every other farmer was a purebred cutlle or hog man, and the Advance featured their and other ads in a 60-page edition.) —«— What's this—or was the report- fir full of prunes or something stronger? Anyhow the Advance of Dec. 12, 1929, said 'Josh' Blossom had spent a day fishing .at Spirit Lake. Gilbert Knudson (ditch the 'K'), of the Emmetsburg Demo- cral, is hereby put wise that in an emergency he can make his foreman, 'Ev' Finnell, help fill up the paper. In December, 1929, 'Ev' edited an Algona high school column in the Advance, and darned if it wasn't a very good one. —*— Well, in five years more Joe Bloom and W. A. Vigars can qualify for membership in the Kiwanis Twenty-Year club — if the Kiwanians have one as the Rotarians do. The local club had just initiated them. the observance is kept up just the same. Other guests al the dinner and for the evening were Mr. and Mrs. Roy Sarchet, son Richard, Mr. and Mrs. Clair Winkie, son Ward, .and Jessie Sarchet. Cards were played after dinner, and served. late lunch was Shower for a Bride— A miscellaneous shower, a postnuptial courtesy, was given Mildred Elmore Boeckholdt at Ihe Community Room at Good Hope one day lasl week. Hostesses were Myrtle Sorenson, Marguerite Gardner, Myrtle Rutledge, Ruth Harlan, Esther Rath, Evelyn McNeil, Dorothy Vigdal, Ida Reicl, and Miss Walker. Fifly-five women attended. Games" and guessing contests took up Ihe afternoon till the bride unwrapped her gifts. Lunch was served in a pink and white color scheme, which W'jrc the bride's chosen colors at her wedding.

Rice was fixing up that old frame building next north of the Call (the original Call) us a waiting room for movie patrons when the auditorium was filled to capacity. Fearful of fire in the theater, he had also arranged to have an employe make an inspection round of the building frequently while shows were in progress. But the fire that eventually did the business occurred when there was no show. —•"— Doesn't seem thai long, but it's 15 years since Doctor Temple sold his Burl dental practice and with his wife moved to California, where he was still practicing and having all he could do, al last repor*s. (They have taken the Advance ever si'nce they left.) —*— Gordon Dewel, present address somewhere in France (if the Krauts haven't chased him out), had a "by-line" in the Dec. 19, 1929, Advance over a story about his Iowa City Alpha Sigma Phi chapter's 175-lb. dog Rex, and the dog's picture appeared in the next column. He (Rex) was the successor of a Duane E. Dewel rat terrier which Bob Harrington and Charles Akre had taken to Jowa City the year before, but which emerged second best in collision with an automobile.

So increase the size of your flock—with Swift's A fay. and June Chicks—and increase your 1943 poultry income. Swift's May and June Chicks are especially hardy—the kind that are vigorous and lively all the time. And there is a good reason why Swift's May and June Chicks are so exceptionally sturdy—disease resistant. They're bred from selected flocks only. These flocks are picked for good health, egg- produeing ability. Then they are re-culled, again pullorum-tcsted. To be accepted, flocks must have loss than 2 per cent reactors. You'll get fine eggs and lots of them from Swift's Chicks, and fine, marketable meat, too! Order them today.
