Charley Kuhn ua* prewnted with a handsome badge last week for 63 years of attendance at the Kossuth County Fair. He has taken an active part in the Kossuth fair during all those years and this year served as gatekeeper in front of the grandstand. He was among those who spoke a few words over the KG1/J broadcast from the fairgrounds 'jri Thursday. When the young ryrllsts joined the safety council they mounted their bikes and followed Chief of Police Van Alstyne. He. too. was on a bicycle, giving instructions for turning and stopping, never faltering or losing balance: he did not upset. Looks like a little secret practice took place before hand. * # * A truck bached «p to the door of the Joe Durnin's on East Kcnne- ly street and unloaded two big boxes. Curious, he investigated and earned the address was a Kennedy street in Garner and had been chipped from California. * • * A couple of colored baseball plsv- ?rs have it in for Doc Scanlon. He :ent them to the national baseball ourney at Wichita while here at iome Watermelon Day was being elebrated. An event they had planned on enjoying for many weeks. Thov ppsky grasshoppers who like to eat our golden grain have other cravings too. Mrs. Kay Setchell hung a washing on the line and as if by signal the hoppers came from far and near to feast, passing up the snow white sheets and cases and devouring the dainty ladies' under garments, leaving nothing but the straps attached to the linei. * * * While the council was enjoying the sights in St. Louis, member Huenhold took a spare moment and Going to school In a theatre! ft sounds a bit strange, doesn't It? But that Is what women of the community will b* doing when th« Algona Upper Des Moines' motion picture cooking school comes to town on Wednesday and Thursday Sept. 21 and 22. The program will start promptly at 9:30 a. m. at the Call Theatre. There will be real lessons, too. sent a picture postcard to the Smoke Shop telling of his big time. Before the postman would leave the card he collected two cents due for Tunney had written the address on the left hand side of the card with the message on the right side. There's n lesson many folks might learn. Including Tunney. When you cross the halfway line with a message it go—' as first class mail nnd is charged for accordingly. * * * Quite a bit of rxcHemont look place about nine o'clock one eve- ninK of fair week as n car parked across from the hotel was discovered to have two sets of license plates. Tall stories spread quickly. They really had something there. It turned out to be either a federal or state agent's car with a right lo the extra plates. It shows our boys are right on the job. * * • Want a scare? Rap on the back door of the Mart Weaver home. You'll be greeted fiercely. Not by the Weavers, but their family cat. A watch dog if ever there was one. He will strike and spit at strangers, hunch his back and give you the works. On top of that he has pointed ears that stand erect and a tall cut off to resemble a wild bob cat. * » * A young couple, married thin summer, living on Diagonal street thought themselves separated a few- nights ago. He stayed out until two o'clock, his first night out. He returned to find her missing. He searched the house and called without response. He made ready for bed. Dolled himself before the mir. ror. turned this way and that admiring his manly form. He sat on he bed wondering and worrying. lessons in measuring, mixing, and blending the ingredients for many recipes: In the preparation of such triumphs as a lattice-top fruit pie: in making delicious frozen desserts and salads: in laundering fine fabrics: and in planning healthful meals for growing children. Trie camera has asembled all the expert information of trained home economists—not as a routine lecture, not as a formal "highbrow" demonstration, but as a real romance of home making, full of suspense and charm, and informal chats from one good cook to another. There will be remarkable cjose- ups of each process in a series of model, conveniently-equipped kitchens—real, workable kitchens, not the synthetic, false-front variety, where trained home makers will plan and complete the preparation of several meals so the entire audience can see the process step by step. The class won't be all work, for there is the constant play of sparkling humor, the appeal of tender romance, the suspense of a coherent, intelligently directed story, which dramatizes every day happenings- the human sort of things that really do happen. Binding the attractive story together is the romance of home-making, a subject that holds the interest of every woman young and oH Even the Upper Des Moines knows that all women—brides, business types, and experienced housekeeper' —respond to the fascination of looking In on another woman when she is at work in the kitchen. Particularly do they like it when they are allowed to sit quietly and watch her prepare some dish <:t which she specializes. They kno-.v that if-they watch closely, while she measures and mixes and completes the entire cooking operation, tliis close-up personal study will be more helpful than hours of ready recipes or blind experimenting. The motion picture camrra \va« leisurely, completely unhurried and painstakingly accurate in record ing "Star in My Kitchen." There is no trickery in the cooking, baking. and preparation of appetizing irebox: wonders. Competent cooks who have drifted into bad habits will be able to check their own mistake^ by studying systematic routine revealed in those close-ups. In addition to the daily recipe sheets, a generous store of gifts are destined to be carried back to many a home from the Call Theatre. Don't miss the 1938-model school.
