2—Algonn Upper Des Moiitas Tuesday, January 17, 1950 bT CHHXB HEEBK A Lltib oi ThU, • Llttto ol Thai: Ret Mucft of Anyfldntr. Confernce County Cage Tournaments Next Week It was Saturday afternoon, a week ago, that I saw a crowd centered in the Kossuth Motor and so I slipped over there from the post office and put the usual dun in my pocket without opening it and edged into the group looking at the new cars and then a lady spoke up and said "Ah, here's the world's champion coffee gulper and we should see to it that he is properly provided with Java." And there at a counter were Mrs. Don Nelson, Mrs.,Lyle, Mrs. John McGuire and Mrs. Arvin DeGrotte serving hot coffee and doughnuts to the visitors, and what could I do but take on the gulping, and the ladies hunted for a doughnut which practically had no hole in it because on account of it's the hole in the doughnut that makes me sick, so to speak. And to, before thai group of folks I proceeded to give an exhibition of proper coffee gulping and I dunked the Doughnut without getting any coffee on my wrist, and the quartet of coffee servers were swell in their comments about my gulping exhibition. And the coffee was good and if I could have contacted Ralph Miller or Chas. Murtagh about borrowing the price I'd have bought two cars. —o— And while talking about coife* gulpers a Gulper Club is being organized at Osage, Iowa, with Editor L. G. Benz, of the Osage News providing plenty publicity about the organization there. It so happens that Tony Foth. a former Algona resident, but now in the plumbing business at Osage, was visiting here recently and I signed him up in the Gulpers and he started things in Osage. Mr. Benz is the president of the Osage club, Robt. J. Foth vice president and Art Gaul secretary. Tony told me that there are quite a few Scandihoovians in that neighborhood and they're all good gulpers and one of these days Mitchell county will have a gulper membership running into the hundreds, so to speak. ' A Song of Hate I hate the winters, bleak and cold, I hate the blast of icy breeze, I suffer tortures but untold when winter's here with cough and sneeze. I am a bird of thinning blood and winter gives me plenty chill, no longer am I guileless dub, no longer does sub zero thrill. I don my undies, red and long, anticipate the wintry droughts, I take of pill and powder strong that would prevent a wracking cough. And chilling winds of wintry moan bring fear| and trembling to rny breast; I feel the cold in joints and bone— for me there's nary peace nor rest. I ply my chest with sundry "rubs," vile smelling dope which sickens me, I join the ranks of weakling dubs, imagined ills we lipht per se. And I am filled with aches and pains, I shiver in the wintry breeze — my every fibre, nerve complains, I cough 1 wheeze, I groan, I sneeze. I hover over furnace heat, I seek the warming rays of sun, an all consuming urge to beat Jack Frost who makes of me a bum. I dream of sunny, warmer climes, where never stalks the cough or sneeze, where flowers, birds and warmth sublime join hands with gentle summer breeze. And there I fain would end my days, enjoying balmy, peaceful rest, without the curse of winter ways to beal against a marilv breast. I hate the winters, bleak and cold, 1 hate the blast of icy breeze, suffer tortures bun untold when winter's here with cough anc sneeze. And that's that, so to speak. Ed Graham and Herbert Maine: are new members of the Algon: Gulper Club, and they're botl employed by the city to hel| keep us warm these winter days. Herbert suggested that I should sign up all of the Algona heating bunch and maybe they could arrange to provide a heating system in Algona by which a fellow could warm up his coffee, day or night. Ed proposed that I take a day off some time and visit all of the city gurjy. from the mayor down and see to it that they all became yulper members and maybe it could be arranged so that the coffee pot could be warmed up in the cit'-'s institutions at 10 a. in. and 3 p. in. And he's got something there. And when I'm elected mayor I'll see to it that the drinking fountains on the main drag will aeive col fee instead of water 15 minutes daily. Of course that wouldn't go over SO hot with the gents who serve coffee now over the counters. But I'd arrange to lock the fountains each day during the 15 minutes and only city employes would have a key. There's something to think about when you enter tlm bootl* to vote for me for mayor. The week beginning Monday, Jan. 24 will be a busy one, basket- ball-wiss. Algona high school cagers will participate in two tournaments, simultaniously. The Kossuth county tournament will open Monday night at Swea City with Algona Bees drawing Lakota for the opening game at 6:45 p. m. Ledyard Draws Bye Ledyard drew a bye so will meet the winner of the Algona- Lakota game on Tuesday. Other games on Monday will be Whittemore-Wesley and Swea City-Fenton. Burt drew a bye. Titonka plays Seneca on Tuesday and Grant drew a bye. Winners in these first round games will play a further elimination on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Friday, there will be two games to determine the teams to enter the finals and consolation on Saturday, Jan. 28. Conference Tourney North Central Conference teams will stage their tourna- nent beginning Jan. 26 and winding up with the finals on Saturday, Jan. 28.
