DOROTHY ...feminine touch! BY THE TIME this is printed, Algona's thrilling basketball weekend will be passe', with this the day of the second game to be played, I can't help but feel the remainder of the games will be anticlimac lc after the melodramatic Algona - Des Moines North display which seemed to shock the "City" folks. IT's TRUE that the greater share of Algona's population was 1° in vl ln ^ e bl6aCherS at Vet>s A^itorium, but a Lw of us wire left behind to watch the television - and thanks to those who made that possible - or listen on radio. When I went home at a quarter to three, in order to have a front row seat, there really wasn't much of anything stirring on the main thoroughfare In fact a cSfT^ 6 S ? eet W ° Uldn ' t have ruffled a hair. A seemingly silent dedication to the "men of the hour". THE TEAMS are introduced, the whistles blow and you sav a silent prayer. Sure, we have an early lead and all seems well, but the anxiety mounts, no matter what,.with a little fear that something may eo wrong. Just can't bear to watch any more for a minute, guess I'll run to the kitchen and mix up something for the oven. But make it something quick - really can't stand to stay away from the television too long! Turn on the radio and listen while you make the Brownies-Oops, better run back in and see what it looks like again - oh, it's great!!! Must get that last ege w the Brownies. . . just look at that Johnson with his cat-like deliberate handling of that ball - beautiful! - Oh yes, the Brownies ... Thank Heavens, Halftime! THIRD QUARTER and all favors seem to be pointing our way as yet. Those interviews, both pre-game and halftime, did seem partial - wonder what it does take to convince them. . . it's a beautiful game A few more fouls - be careful . . . Whew, better make the frosting. Fourth Quarter and things are still looking up. Even though the game itself is exemplified, the sportsmanship displayed is something to be more than proud of. Oh dear, foul trouble for a few, maybe I'd better do up those baking dishes Now, just a few minutes to go and all seems well. Wonder what that announcer means, "Algona is ATTEMPTING an upset" oh well, it's down to the gun now, the end of a great game. And those young boys think THEY'RE tired!!! CHOCOLATE SYRUP BROWNIES 1 cup sugar, 1 stick margarine, four eggs, 1 cup flour, 1 large can of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and 1/4 tsp. baking soda. Cream sugar and margarine, mix thoroughly after each egg. Add alternately, the flour and baking soda, sifted, with the chocolate syrup. Add nuts if desired. Mix well and pour into greased and floured 10 x 15 cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees 25 to 30 minutes. To frost, mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, 6 tablespoons margarine and 6 tablespoons milk. Bring to a boil and boil 30 seconds. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Stir and cool to the right spreading consistency. COFFEESCOTCH MERINGUE PIE 1/3 cup chunk style peanut butter - 2/3 cup confectioners sugar - 1 9 inch baked pastry shell- 1 (3 3/4 oz.) pkg. butterscotch pudding and pie filling (not instant)- 2tsp. instant coffee - 1 (13 oz ) can evaporated milk - 1/2 cup water - 2 eggs, separated and 1/4 cup sugar. In a small bowl, cut peanut butter into confectioners sugar until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spread all but one tablespoon of the mixture in the bottom of a baked and cooled pastry shell. In a saucepan, combine pudding and pie filling mix, instant coffee, evaporated milk, water and egg yolks. Stir and cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Cool five minutes. Spoon over peanut butter crumbs in crust. Beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until meringue 'forms; stiff peaks. Swirl on top of filling in pie, spreading to crust to seal edges. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven until meringue is delicately browned, about 5 to 8 minutes. Cool to room temperature before cutting to serve. ADD A NUTTY TOUCH TO TOAST Like cinnamon toast at your house? Add finely chopped walnuts to your cinnamon sugar and sprinkle over hot buttered toast as usual Delicious on buttered toasted English muffins, too. Untoasted bread also profits by the cinnamon-sugar-walnut treatment. Spread slices or strips of bread generously with soft butter or margarine Press buttered side down, into walnut mixture. Always welcome in lunch- boxes, or for an after-school or teatime snack. Mary Ann Eischen Elected To College Senate Board OMAHA - .Elections were held last week for College of ±?p5r?

Don't call 'friends' on the carpet By Abigail Van Buren [ c, 1971 b» Chicjio Trlbune-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are in the carpet business. We do beautiful work and our prices are right When so-called "friends" show us carpet they have installed in their homes, which they bought somewhere else and they ask us what we think of it, what should we say? [They even have the nerve to tell us how much they paid for it ] Nine times out of 10 it is a poor job of installation, and they paid too much. I always tell them the truth My husband says that I should never knock the competition regardless, otherwise it will sound like sour grapes These same people never even let us give them an estimate! ,1 say why should we consider their feelings if thev don t consider ours? What do you think? ' ; -CARPET PEOPLE DEAR PEOPLE: I think your husband is right. And the same goes for people In the jewelry business, furniture business, fur business, and every other kind of business. DEAR ABBY: Our first baby is 7 weeks old, and I am breas -feeding her. A lot of young mothers wouldn't want to be bothered with breast-feeding, but I don't mind because I think it s healthier for the baby. My husband doesn't appre- £ h 'n S\" faCt> l Mnk he ' d rather l P ut the baby on the bottle. He has as much as said so. The problem is that when I feed the baby and my husband has some of his friends here he asks me to go into another room. I don't see why. There is nothing bad or sexy ft"" a t mf ° H e ^ n Tl ng her Child ' He sa y s he doesn1t «ke or me to feed the baby that way in front of his friends and l am hurt. Do you see anything wrong with it? Please settle this as I think he is wrong and he thinks I am. —NURSING MOTHER DEAR NURSING MOTHER: Knowing how your husband feels about it, nurse the baby in private and keep the peace. DEAR ABBY: A while back you had a letter from a woman who made her husband shave his chest. She must be it , I have a very hairy chest which I wouldn't shave for any amount of money. I sleep only in pajama bottoms and Seek than ay L n ^T '*? my hairy chest a * ainst ^ cneex than the collar of a mink coat. —HAIRY AND HAPPY just about go crazy when his big hairy chest heaves UD and down and tickles my shoulders and back-! n rhytto yet- I know just how that lady must have felt. -TICKLED PINK r Woman Of The Week 1 I ._, I Roe Ann Kollasch Of Rodman To Wed In May The engagement of Rae Ann Kollasch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Kollasch, Rodman, to Roger E. Corbin, son of Mrs. Dorothy Anderson, Omaha, and the late John E. Corbin, has been announced. Miss Kollasch is a 1968 graduate of Garrigan High School and presently a senior at St. Joseph's School of Nursing in Omaha. Her fiance received his B.A degree from the University of Omaha and his M.A. from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He is presently teaching in the Omaha school system. A May wedding is planned. BEULAH RICHARDSON has a family like no other woman in Algona, 1870 children ranging in ages from 5 to 19 years. She is, as most of you know, the School Nurse for the Algona Community School System, a job she has filled for the past 13 years. Mrs. Richardson graduated from high school at Wessington, So. Dak. and received her nursing degree in 1938 from Dakota Wesleyan Methodist College at Mitchell, So. Dak. She came to Algona immediately where she was employed at the old Kossuth Hospital as Staff nurse in charge of all nurses until 1946 when the hospital was sold to the doctors. During those eight years, she had helped care for 1200 newborn babies and saw the wonders of anti-biotics come to life. She did private duty nursing until her marriage in 1949 to Mr. Richardson. Following his death she cam to the public school system. At the time Beulah took over her nursing duties, there was an enrollment of 1200 in the entire school system, as compared to almost 1900 at the present time. Each year, for many years, there was a reoccurence of Chicken Pox, German and Red Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Scarlet Fever and some pases of Whooping Cough. As the vaccines have been developed to control the various ——————~__ China Rose A member of the rose family, the nectarine is believed to have originated in China. Nigerian Family Guests Of Jim Andersens diseases, it is only Chicken Pox that seems to be left. Occasion- ally'a case of mumps "pops up"and a few were recorded in Algona this year. She visited each school in the entire Algona Community system every day and knows definitely the medical condition of its pupils. One of the nuisance contagions that appears periodically is Impetigo and it has no definite season or reason. . Three times during a child's school life, parents are asked to have physical examinations made at their own expense. This is before they enter kindergarten — . and the different foods is.some- thing that will take much time to become accustomed to, as in Africa most foods are fried^ steamed or boiled - nothing is baked. Frequently food is dropped into the fire itself and everything is highly spiced. She finds American food entirely too sweet. They eat fresh fruit, fish, shrimp, tapioca and spinach, as we do. They also have egg plant, but it is called garden egg and comes in both the purple variety, as well as green. Fashions- in the cultivated areas are comparable to those any other place in the world. They too have the maxi - midi and mini, it is the climate difference between the United States and Africa that is the biggest hurdle of the moment. The Bajahs and their three oldest daughters are shown above with the children, left to right: '. Oti, 4; Laju, 2 and Marian who '" ! will be 6 in May. and at the 5th and 9th grade levels. Hearing checks are made when the pupils are in the first, third and sixth grades and a vision check is made annually Kindergarten through the 9th grades. The Dental card system is used in conjunction with the Iowa Dental Association, Kindergarten through 5th and school compete on a state-wide program. Tuberculin Testing, sponsored and paid for by the Kossuth County TB Association,,is done in grades 1-5-9 and 12 and all school personnel. The reactors to the skin test are later X-Rayed. Mrs. Richardson was exceptionally pleased at the beginning of this school year when 71 per cent of the total kindergarten enrollment of 186 pupils had been 100 per cent pre-immunized.She also keeps a complete up-to-date record of all children throughout their school life. So the duties of a school nurse are far more than taking an occasional temperature. Mrs. Richardson has two hobbies she thoroughly enjoys, raising African violets, of which she has many, and remodeling old houses. She has also shared two of her favorite recipes with us. ANGEL FOOD DELIGHT 1 loaf angel food cake 1 pkg. (6 oz.) semi-sweet choc, bits 3 1/2 T. water 4 egg yolks 2 T. powdered sugar , 1 pkg.

The recent visit of TundeBajah, his wife Agatha, and their three daughters, at the home of the Jim Andersens, brought together two families whose fathers met quite accidentally almost three years ago. Mr. Andersen, guidance counselor at the Algona High School, was attending an eight weeks session at the University of South Dakota, Vermillion, and had registered for a private room. When he arrived he found that someone else had unpacked and was already occupying the same room. Mr. Bajah soon arrived and found his private room had been invaded and. after a short time they consented to being roommates for the many weeks of study. Tunde Bajah is currently on leave from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria for post graduate study in the United States. He received his master's degree at St. John's College, Oxford, and will complete his doctorate at Harvard University. He has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Africa and is a cultivated speaker. He spoke to the AEA on the customs of his coun- ' try, the devastating effects of the war with Biafra and a comparison of educational systems. He spent some time at the Algona Community High School observing the new modular program and also spoke to several of the classes. Agatha and the children arrived in the United States just five weeks ago from Nigeria. Left in Nigeria with her grandparents, is their one-year-old daughter, Ami. She is a graduate of Sacred Heart College in midwest Nigeria and is a kindergarten teacher. She plans to enter summer school at the University of South Dakota where her husband is presently teaching freshman Chemistry. He anticipates entering Harvard University in the fall. Mrs. Bajah does have to adjust to doing her own work. At home labor is cheap and families are hired, with the men doing the majority of the labor. Cooking SHOP YOUR CATALOG! GRAHAM HARDWARE OW OPEN!
