A "no parking" fili;n stands in front of the express office. A week ago Saturday night every available parking space was tilled. This one spot alone remained unoccupied. An official of the county aafety council drove in. Safety, surety, sanity. He picked up the sign, a portable one, and placed it beside the car to the rear. * • • The new Cha*. LuBurre home Is going up according to specification* and the blue print. With the foundation and footings in and a good start on the fall of the built-in garage; Charlie scrutinized it eagle-like and pondering over the size, got out a measuring stick and learned that the car was somewhat longer than the floor of the garage. * • • Will Broun photoed the colored baseball battery. From many angles and much loss of perspiration, Will tried to < atch a ball leaving the pitchers' hand But he waa too fast. Will decided a pitcher with a recommendaton of .speed equal to that of the great Dizzy Dean was a sticker. He just wouldn't blow down. » » » •John McEnroe walked toward a far.

Andy Foster was a.;ked lor hij. l!>:en>e. Again the warden looked over the tar. even KOin;^ to tile rear for approval of the out of btale licenfce plate. "There'o something fiihy," quoted trie warden. With visions of iron bars and disgrace Andy yelled out. 'It ought to be all right; I gave four dollars for it." * • * Before the »ca*on geU advanced someone suggested a city aeries for the baseball championship between the Grays and the Boosters. Not a bad idea with wagers about even. * * * People promote «nfety in driving, hire police to protect the folks and patrol the highways, meet and talk and spend, educate arid condemn. all for public welfare When a body gets maimed or injured it is awful, gruesome, criminal. But the same public will pack the fairgrounds' grandstand for the auto and cycle races. Hoping, praying, shouting for a collision, an upset, a mangled toruo. Thirsty for blood, their own races through their body extra heated and inspired. If an evil occurrence fails on the race track, they are disgusted, the race was no good. Humana all, refined, cultured, civilized with an animal instinct. * • * Those new basketball courts erected and supervised through the Kiwanlans for the kids are exceeding expectations. Each neighborhood has its kids of from 21 to 45 who are showing the youngsters how they used to do it and at the same time hogging the ball and park. From what appeared so far they were not so hot. At least, that is the backfire of the kids, who wait their turn. * * • "Skim" Miller, Doc Janse's son- in-law, of Oklahoma City, spent the week end here . No happier man ever left Algona. Happy because he was leaving. "Skim" brought along two light and thin suits as a wardrobe. Iowa's cold and wet weather was too Improper to those suits. What he looked for was an overcoat but friends declined to aid and he suffered and said unpleasant things about our locality. * • * Chas. Nlcoulln drove home Saturday night about seven o'clock in the downpour of water. He ran from the car to the house. About nine-thirty Chuck decided to come up town. He sat and worried whether or not the car would start. It was raining hard and had been continuously. At ten, a half hour of fretting he raised his dander and braved the elements to the car. Like a fairy story the motor was running. It had been for three hours. Chuck forgot to shut It off.
