6 - Kossuth County Advance Monday, March 29, 1971 BY Dich Godfredsen Granddaughter Of Algerians Is Married In Arizona Gail Jean Gross, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard D. Gross of Phoenix, Ariz., and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Willrett, Algona, became the bride of Paul Robert Corley on Saturday, March 27, in St. Paul's See DIAMOND'S For Western Boots By Justin, Texas, Wrangler. Lutheran church at Phoenix. The Rev. Carl Stiener officiated at the double ring ceremony at seven-thirty in the eveTiing. Miss Clara Engstrom was maid of honor and bridesmaids were the Misses Gloria and Nancy Gross, sisters of the bride and Mrs. Roger Yeckel. Rene Aarona, niece of the groom, was the flower girl. Miss Judy McLeod was the soloist. Chuck Corley attended his brother as best man with the usher- groomsmen, Jim McArdle, Ron Wiernuz and Randy Reid. The reception was held in the church parlors after which the bridal couple left for a week in California. They will be at home in Phoenix. Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Willrett attended the wedding of their granddaughter whose mother is the former Kathryn Willrett. Also attending from here was Mrs. Mitch Taylor, aunt of the bride, who will return to Algona this week with the Willretts. By T.H.C., guest columnist It was unfortunate that the week after the closing of Patton at the local theatre, the magazine Time devoted its cover and a full length story to George C. Scott. It is also an interesting coincidence that an article entitled, By George, should appear in the current issue of Playboy. Considerably more interest might have been generated in viewing this important film in Algona. Curiously, also, is the fact in covering the movie in my last week's review, the name of Geo. C. Scott was never mentioned. I was apparently so engrossed in the film version that I was completely unmindful of the man who portrayed it on the screen. For those who are not Time subscribers, I submit a rather interesting side-light on the character of George C. Scott, written by the man himself. I think you have to be schizoid three different ways to be an actor. You've got to be three different people. You have to be a human being. Then you have to be the character you're playing. And on top of that you've got to be the guy sitting out there in Row 10, watching yourself and judging yourself. That's why most of us are crazy to start with, or go nuts once we get into it. I mean, don't you think it's a pretty spooky way to earn a living? So we'll close the book on that great motion picture, Patton, and I hope you saw it. Being of a very unscientific mind, I passed up 2001 Space Odyssey and we come up with I Love My Wife, with that somewhat unorthodox actor, Elliott Gould, ex-husband of Barbra Streisand, Gould's questionable claim to fame, (I could scarcely call him an actor) is that he advocates the wider use of four- letter words in our current vocabulary. How about that? As for the picture itself, the less said about it the better. So we'll proceed to Wild Coun- • You'll love the clean-cooking electric range. No flame. No soot No smoke. • Many of the new electric ranges have self-cleaning ovens, eliminating the toughest kitchen clean-up chore forever. • An electric range is the only way to flameless cooking. See your favorite electric appliance dealer. Let him show you the wonderful world of clean electric cooking. ALGONA MUNICIPAL UTILITIES try, a G-rated Walt Disney where we're again on safe ground, from a family standpoint. The next quartet includes three "R's" and one G - Airport, which you won't want to miss, take my word for it. If Goldie Hawn is your dish, it's light entertainment. Owl and the Pussycat is definitely "R" while Fire Easy Pieces is not for the older generation. It's still highly rated by most critics which doesn't influence me one bit. The "kids" will enjoy it - if accompanied by an adult, however. Now I'm ready for Dick to return and assume his duties as regular columnist.
