Thinking, dreaming, semiconscious of his whereabouts. The strains of "Waiting at the Church" came drifting into the ear. It couldn't be true, It wasn't true. Bob was there the day before his wedding date. * * * Great news that article in last week's paper about appointing Hop Findley head coach and the outline for next year's athletic program. Golf will be a new sport Fine, needed, but so exclusive. Baseball was not even mentioned. A universal sport for the masses. The conference schools have taken to baseball and it could become a competitive game. The coach and his assistants are university schooled in baseball. When dies it get a look in? * * * Mrs. Bod Zender ha* a cat, a peculiar and learned one. The kitty will reach an open paw into a tall vase of milk, close it and pull out the liquid, put the paw In its mouth and get the milk entirely by repltion( with not a drop on the floor. It will eat stewed corn and loves it, the same way, taking only one kernel at a time. * * »« The movie* need look no further for a Tarzan than Algona. All the necessities required are to have a scout on the street when Fuzzy Roblnault and Bill Specht greet each other along about the turning point of the day or the birth bf a new one. That wierd, loud call of Bill puts to shame the original one of the jungles and sends many a listener to a doorway and safety. * * * Promoter fiv Flnnel, now known as Tex, is a member of the concession stand force at Sunday night ball games. A bunch of young fellows, names unknown to him, patronized the stand regularly. Ev got brave and conversed with them often telling them the fine points of the game. Monday night of the benefit game the same boys were there again. But this time as they appeared they were dressed in baseball suitl. Quoting Tex, "Was my face red, they probably knew more baseball than I did when all summer long I was trying to tell them something." * * * Among the inscriptions on a newlyweds' automobile were the words, "Look out, Papa Dlonne." Whoever were the jokesters that is setting the goal exceptlonlly high and some of those who read it think that papa need not worry over his scoord. * • * When a circus comes to town It usually attracts a large crowd. Every Sunday is circus day nt West Bend if the crowd is any indication. Thousands of folks each Sabbath. Nearly every state In the union has visited the grotto this summer.
