AIM STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLES "Twice Honored by State Awards" ONE COLD WINTER day, it was the day before Christmas as a matter of fact back in 1969, the boys down at Bill Hilton 1 s Sinclair station discovered a skinny, half-starved little cat outside the station sitting on a pile of snow atop a parked car. The cat was wild and wouldn't go near the food the boys put out until no one was around. But the animal was not dumb - it took refuge In the warmth of the station when it was closed that night and it's never left for the past 18 months. The name "Hobo" stuck and the cat is somewhat of a mascot around the place. "We've got an open cat food charge account at the grocery stores," Bill confided, "and everyone looks out for him. Our customers pet him and talk to him when they stop for gas." "Hobo" has escaped many wheels around the place, too. "In the winter he stays inside the station almost all the time," HOBO GUARDS MUFFLER SUPPLY Bill reports. "We put a blanket on top of the Midas muffler stand and he sleeps there at night when we close up." It's just a quick jump from floor to chair to the bed for Hobo. During the summer, Hobo makes an occasional trip around the block but keeps pretty close to food and shelter the rest of the time. About the only worry the boys had was when the Terrace Park milk truck was parked inside the station overnight during the winter and driver Joe Garner always had to make sure the cat was somewhere safe when he pulled the truck out at 4 a.m. each morning. Bill recalls one time Hobo escaped and Joe had to chase him all the way to the post office to bring him back since the station doesn't open until 7 a.m. "I never have taken him home," Bill says. "We've got a cat there too and its best to keep them apart." No one knows where Hobo came from but it's a safe bet that he'll spend the rest of his days at Hilton's Sinclair station. Not a bad life either — plenty to eat, lots of company and a warm, safe bed at night! HOW CASH-CALL giveaways by radio stations can be reconciled with listenership claims perplexes me ... for instance, a couple of Des Moines stations call several times a day and if the listener has been listening to the station and can answer a simple question, he receives the cash jackpot. If not, the kitty goes up $5 and another call is made later in the day. It seems the jackpot is always at $125 to $175 which would mean it takes between 25 and 35 calls to find someone who is listening to that particular station . . . projecting that on a percentage basis, it would mean only 3 to 5% of the possible audience is listening to that station. What puzzles me is how the station can reconcile this to potential advertisers? BILL LUDWIG is probably the only person in Kossuth County who regularly has a set of crutches in the trunk of his car. "I never know when I might need them," the Algona man reports as he wheeled his cast - encased left leg down the street. Bill had a pile of lumber slip from beneath him and he cracked the ankle bone when he fell on it the other day. "It's the second time I've broken the ankle," Bill reported. If you think the crutches in the trunk are a pessimistic view of things, ponder this - Bill has broken 18 bones during his lifetime! Urges Registration For New 18-Year Olds Acting as a follow-up to the adoption by the Iowa Senate of a resolution which declares next week "Iowa High School Senior Voter Registration Week", Representative Berl Priebe (Demo- cart, Algona) said that he has urged Kossuth county political party chairman to encourage all area seniors who are 18 years of age to become legally registered voters during the week of May 17. "In the excitement and confusion of the impending graduation ceremonies, I hope that every 18-year-old senior will take a brief moment to prepare himself for the role of full adult citizenship by registering to vote," Priebe said. Priebe suggested Democratic chairman Steve McCall and GOp chairman John Love present a brief explanation to seniors in the schools on the mechanics of voter registration. "Thousands of young lowans who are eligible to vote in 1972 should register now rather than to wait until the last minute when city clerks' and county auditors are nearly crushed with registration traffic," Priebe commented. He said over 130,000 lowans in the 18-21 year age group will be eligible voters in 1972 for all state, local and national elections if the 26th amendment to the U. S. Constitution is ratified by 38 states by then. Ratification appears likely now that 24 states including Iowa have already acted on the amendment. High school seniors should register at the office of the county auditor at the Kossuth county court house and this takes less than five minutes of their time.

Chief Max Flaig Is Director Of Oil Drum Band After more than twenty years as a musician, seventeen of them as a professional with the U. S. Navy, Senior Chief petty Officer Max Flaig of Lone Rock, will be learning to play a new musical instrument. A tuba player in the Iowa All- State High School Band in 1954, Chief Flaig will soon be pounding on 55-gallon oil drums as leader of the Navy Steel Band home based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. And the repertoire of the band members, who all play the 55-gallon oil drums which have been altered to produce a series of musical tones, runs the gamut from popular to classical tunes and includes the native calypso music of the West Indies. The Navy Steel Band assignment will be a traveling job. Chief Flaig will report to the unit in June when the band completes a six-week tour of the United States. In the past, the band has been honored with two command performances at the White House and has appeared on popular television shows, including the Ed Sullivan and Mike Douglas Shows. The unit also has produced four LP recordings. Since its foundation, the Navy Steel Band has flown over 500,000 miles and has made more than 4,500 appearances around the world.
