'Take 5' By TOM WALLER KOSSUTH COUNTY was represented, unofficially, at the most recent Washington, D.C., peace demonstration by the David Douglas Duncans of Algona and Iowa State University, Bill Bray. If you remember Bill'k photographic work in the Algona newspapers, you won't be surprised to learn that he recorded the event on film. The unusual nature of a massive peace demonstration by war veterans should make the photographs historically significant. Some appeared in the Iowa State newspaper. BILL AND FIVE other ISU students drove to Washington as a class assignment. He said a customer in an Indianapolis gas station asked where the boys were going. They told him. Moments later when the boys' car was filled with gas and they went to pay the attendant, he said the inquisitive stranger had already paid for it. - o - GARRIGAN HIGH School's Sister Mary Eugene could be the most avid sports fan in Algona ... and she combines her interest in sports with education. "I read the sports page every morning so I'm able to talk about some of the things the boys are talking about in school," Sister explained at the athletic banquet last week. "I've always liked sports. It started when I lived in a neighborhood witli a lot of boys." She said when they needed another player in Lawler (east of Charles City), she got drafted. SISTER KEEPS up correspondence with a number of famous professional athletes and coaches and has gifts from several of them. I recall that she mentioned George Blanda, Bob Gibson, Tony Oliva, Tim McCarver, Sandy Koufax, Bob Cousy, Daryl Lamonica and Ara Parseghian. Last Wednesday night she traveled to Spencer to hear and meet one of the greatest of them all. ... Bart Starr. - o - ALGONA'S NEW mobile home plant, Brougham industries, will operate in assembly line style with nine production "stations", according to James Hubbard, foreman. The mobile units will advance from one end of the 315-foot long building to the other, with stops at the nine stations; welding shop, mill (carpentry), cabinets, floors and sidewalls, plumbing, shelves, electrical, metal and finish. - o WHITTEMORE observed the idea behind Earth Week by planting 2,300 honeysuckle, 500 dogwood and 750 pine trees in the gravel pit park east of town. The "Whittemore Champion" credited the project to Joe Miller, Erwin Siems and Conservation officer Bill Easier. THE CHAMPION didn't waste any words in making a related point: "With so much discussion about charging an admission fee to our state parks, local people should appreciate an area like the gravel pit. Everyone is asked to please drive on the roads, not all over the park. That's why the roads are there." - o - MAY 10 WILL be "black letter day" in America. That's the day Mr. Average Taxpayer is in the black; he starts working for himself then, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. His earnings until then equal the amount he'll pay in 1971 federal, state and local taxes. TAKEN ON A daily basis, the average wage earner must work more than one-third of every eight-hour work day (2 hrs. 51 min. to be exact) before his daily income will cover liis tax bills. . . . However, to put this in proper perspective, remember that taxation is even heavier in many other nations, and our standard of living is second to none, materialistically speaking.
