Hormel produces and packages the Pepperoni. - o - A DISAPPOINTED seventh-grader at Algona's Middle School was telling how it was decided that the class's spring outing would take place at the Athletic Park instead of Call state Park- "Thev said we couldn't have it at the park because someone might get lost on the trails. . . And we can't use the shelter house at the athletic park unless we have to go to the restroom. ..." - o - CRITICS OF the Algona Police Department should be satisfied now. Officer Shorty Hutchinson was supervising the Kite Flying Contest when he said, "People are always telling us to go fly a kite ..... "By the way, a couple of the winners went home with transistor radios. - o - WE'VE ALL SEEN the girl-pops-out-of-a-cake routine. . . at least in movies. It happened at Charlie's Supper Club in Algona recently. The children of HugoGade, Algona, threw a surprise party for him on his 70th birthday. He was doubly surprised when his daughter Marlene, who lives in California, jumped out of a giant paper cake. - o - AT THIS WRITING, the Algona area gas war is still going Bv my calculations it started March 19. ipulledinto an Algona service station that Friday after seeing the "31.9" on the gas war sign The station manager said that stations in the Burt and Bancroft'area had dropped their prices and "started it all." I WAS IN Burt about two weeks later and noticed the prices were quite a bit higher than in Algona, however. Algona dipped to 29 9 at some pumps. Emmetsburg slipped to 22 and 23 cents. . . Meanwhile one visitor who arrived via Oklahoma's oil-producing country said gas sells for 45 cents a gallon. , - o - BEFORE ALGONA newcomer Pete Arnold had a chance to ask what teenagers in this town are like, several of them were helping him move into the house at 119S. Minnesota Street. Pete is working with his brother-in-law, chuck Behr (trailers, campers, snowmobiles). Chuck flagged down some young male passerby from both Garrigan and Algona High, and they jumped at a chance to helpout and earn a little change to boot. -o- I GOT AN emergency phone call from Art Olson just a few minutes before the annual. Barbershopper's Parade was scheduled to begin. "Did we get all the programs you printed?" he asked. "We're running out already." They did run out because the usual 500 programs were outnumbered this year by the patrons. The crowd was the result of excellent promotion work on the part of the corn Belt chorus ... and they weren't disappointed by the show or the "Afterglow"; at the VFW. -o- AT BEDTIME, a child is someone who won't take now for an answer. A MAN SMART enough to fill a tough job is sometimes too smart to take it. PORTLAND - The Heart Fund has been turned in, totaling$91. 55 in envelopes. This does not include memorials or donations sent in by letter. Mrs. Frank Becker wishes to thank every one for their contributions and cooperation.
