14-Kossuth County Advance Thursday, January 7, 1971 BY RUSS WALLER WHAT ABOUT 1971? THE TAX forms are described as "revised and simpler" . . . but you won't pay any less unless you made less. * * * SID'S CAFE may have toexpand again to accomodate the coffee gulpers. CALL STATE PARK garbage cans seem destined to do a good business with a steady traffic flow from Algona . . . park authorities are working on a "cease and desist" embargo. * * * ANYONE WANTING to use a mimeo machine is advised not to request use of one in the court house. * * * BILLY GRAHAM seems certain to preside at least three times at White House services, and have his picture taken at least six times with Richard N. ' * * * ROBERT RAY AND Richard Turner are not likely to be found waltzing together in Des Moines. * * * ALGONA HIGH teachers may swear off smoking to set a good example in the school ... no more rest and recreation in the lounge. CITY POLICE are having such good luck with their radar that they might get a second one. * :* * WINDING DOWN the war in Vietnam will continue, and so will our activities in Cambodia and Laos. It's a long wind! * * * REAPPRAISAL OF all county real estate will be continued. If you're not called upon we presume you'll make a fast trip to the court house to report it. STORE NO. 13 will continue to be the most profitable business in Algona. * * * THE ARMY Corps of Engineers, running out of things to dig and dredge, is studying dredging the East Fork of the Des Moines river to Algona to allow shipping by barge and thus save the farmers great sums - which they in turn can pay back in taxes to support the projects of the Corps. * * * YOU'LL BE ABLE to drive into the alley and pay your light and water bills. * * * WILLIE VOGEL of Burt has renewed the contract with his ghost writer of timely remarks to head his grocery ads. * * * MRS. OLSON'S coffee will continue to be Mountain Grown but the ladies of the Auxiliaries will still collect B-Nut coffee strips. THE MIDDLE East could calm down if the Russians quit supplying the United Arab Republic and the USA quits supplying Israel. THE FIRST tones of the new Civil Defense siren should resound, scaring the daylights out of every crow and starling for miles and miles . . . and a few civilians as well. * * * ROY STOFFEL may take to sleeping in the Viking Oil office after four break-ins in one week. THE VETERANS Administration plans to set up 30 drug centers for servicemen returning from Vietnam as narcotic addicts - sort of a spin-off from our Asian adventure.
