AIN STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHILLES "Twice Honored by State Awanfc" ONE OF THE BIGGEST shocks our Japanese visitors received when visiting Kossuth County a couple of weeks ago was finding one of their own nationality tucked away on a farm deep in the midwest. Mr. and Mrs. Jim wildin who farm southwest of Algona were invited by the Rotary Club to thedinner at the Algona Country Club honoring the seven Japanese men. Mrs. Wildin is Japanese herself and although she has lived in the area for nearly 20 years still retains a few of the native customs. The men were surprised to see her and one even changed his seating arrangements to sit by her. They told her they were so S y « Panese tea and rice and she told toem she would gladly fix some if they would have had time to visit the Wildin farm home, she keeps ingredients on hand to make some of her native foods. Mrs. Wildin and her husband were invited to the Dr. Don King- fields, another host family, the following evening where the Japanese guest was isao Shinahara nicknamed "Shine" natually since he arrived in this country, and Mrs. Wildin was greatly interested in slides shown of Japan by "Shine". •S. ?: KELAND, who moved from Algona to Monticello, Iowa with his wife last weekend, was sorting through his things as the couple packed to leave recently and came upon an old-time picture of his high school football team which he belives still was one of the greatest in Iowa history. Harry was starting tackle on that 1922 club at Monticello high school Football had just been restored to the high school program two years earlier after an absence of six years and the 1920 team lost just one game, as did the 1921 club. But in 1922 the team Harry played on went through seven straight games without a loss, never had a touchdown scored on it and outscored foes 426 to 0. Not only did the team hold opponents scoreless but no foe ever crossed the Monticello 10-yard line. We might add, good luck to Harry and his wife, who still will be keeping up with the hometown news in the Algona papers! AND THEN THERE is the working wife who glanced at the office clock the other afternoon, noted it was quitting time and locked things up. she waited 15 minutes for her usual punctual husband to pick her up, then decided he was still tied up with his work so walked down to his office to wait for him there. The front office staff was busily working she noted when she asked if he was around ... and activity was still at a fever pitch in the back also. This puzzled her somewhat for the place usuallv has a mass exodus at 5 p.m. She started for the front door and then glanced at the clock - it was 4 : 15 not 5 : 15 as she had thought Chagrined, she hurried back to her office, opened it up again and finished out the 45 minutes of her working day anonymity ' Her request is , WIBBEN is a PP roach tog the retirement age of 65 tv ?h em| ? h0yerS « d c °- workers ho no"d him at a retirement party the other night, one of the gifts was a new Gillette razor £VH ^J™* the gift was Wpriate.

After considerable research on the ways of the sea, Mr. Andersen embarked on a plan of building tiis own cr3jt. The completed craft, 17 1/2 feet long, with Mr. Andersen as its skipper soon was found worthy of paddling in small streams.
