COWAN SB? CO 210 East State Street Phone 275 Did you know thai only ninety per cent of the women in our country marry eventually? I came across this figure when I was looking through a magazine and it started me thinking. We can't get around it, girls, there are simply more marriageable women in the country than men. I'm not up on my statistics and my logical reasoning is shaky, but I believe there is something like 7/8 of a man for every woman. So, if you have one whole husband, no matter what condition he is in, you already have more than your share! Maybe we girls had better brush.up on the subject of the Care and Feeding of Husbands. * * * We girls have always known that our husbands are mighty lucky to have us, but let us consider the other side of the question. We are mighty lucky to have husbands! Now, don't let us go so far as to let the men know we feel that way, but every once in a while having a husband in the house comes in mighty handy! * * » Betty Vinson was glad she had her husband, Craig, when she returned from a trip to Mitchell, S. D.; where she visited her parents during the holidays. When she left she was living in an apartment and with her family of four in one bedroom and they were pretty crowded. For a long time she had been dreaming of a house with more room. Imagine Betty's surprise when upon their return, Craig drove past the apartment home and down to a house. He got her inside the house on the pretext of having to check the furnace and the first thing she spied was her own piano sitting in the living room. During her absence Craig had found and rented the house, packed up the household goods, moved in, and had the whole place reasonably settled! He had even packed the good dishes so carefully that none of them were broken and stocked the kitchen cupboards. He had told her parents of the project but had managed to keep the whole thing a secret from Betty. * * » We just can't avoid it, husbands are better at keeping secrets than wives are. I • strongly suspect, though, that sometimes the reason they keep them to well is that they don't attach as much importance to them and just forget to tell them. . • * * Hereafter, Dick Post will probably listen more carefully when his little daughter, Joan E., tells him that she and Tier mommy, Lavonne, have a big, secret surprise for Daddy. A couple of Saturday nights ago Dick came home tired add during the evening meal' he didn't listen very closely when Joan E. chattered on about the "surprise for Daddy." When he had finished eating he went up to the bedroom to rest a while. In the dark he stretched out his arm to turn on the bedside radio and flopped all 240 {founds of him face down on the bed. The bad part of the matter is that the bed wasn't there! The surprise Joan E. had been trying to tell him about was that she and Mommy had changed all the furniture in the bedroom around! Luckily, only "minor contusions and abrasions" and a severe blow to his parental dignity resulted. Hfe was almost ready to agree with Dagwood that "husbands are a sorry Jot." vanilla, 2 cups flour and 2 cups finely chopped pecans. Roll into balls about one inch in diameter and bake for 25 minutes on an ungreased cooky sheet in a 325 degree oven. When cool roll in powdered sugar. This makes about four dozen and they are easy to do once you have the nuts chopped fine.

Milton Holcomb, professor of agriculture in charge of farm operations at Iowa State college, has resigned to accept a position with an Ohio manufacturing firm. Prof. Holcomb was graduated from Iowa State college in 1935. He taught at Wesley, Rudd, Armstong, Manson, and Sac City, before joining the Iowa State college faculty. He is a son of J. H. Holcomb, and attended Swea City school before entering college. See Relays Pictures Swea City school pupils enjoyed a picture of the Drake Relays, Monday arid Tuesday, during the noon hour. The pictures in technicolor, were sent out by Drake university, intended for the Lions club, but arrived too late. Supt. Dresser took advantage of the opportunity to use the films.

Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Blomster have gone to Columbia, Mo., to Tuesday, January 31, 1950 Algona Upp*r De* Mohwt-7 live while their daughter, Patricia, is attending Stephens college there. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Carrel ot Ogden were recent visitors with her father, M. E. Johnson, and at the home of her sister, Mrs, E. t Hammond. The Rev. A. M. Youngquist wr« elected second vice president ot the executive board of the Lutheran Welfare society at the annual meeting at Mason City fast week. Dr. C. C. Anderson and MM Anderson are on their way home after having spent two months at Camp Carson, Colorado Springs, at the Station hospital there. Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Tweeten drove to Minneapolis Saturday to spend the weekend, but weather and road conditions forced them to make a longer stay than they had anticipated. They returned home Friday, Jan. 27. Mr. and Mrs. Martin Gabel have received the following letter from the Army Air Fofce: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gabel: We thought you would like to know of your son, Darold's, progress as a member of this organization. Darold has shown a sincere interest in his work as a radio operator and has proven a definite asset to the efficiency of our organization, whose mission is to furnish communications service for military air traffic in the PaeiOc area. In vi*w of his diligence and the conscientious manner in which he has performed his assigned duties, Darold has been promoted to the grade of corporal. It is a pleasure to have your son as a member of this organization. Sincerely yours, Joseph V. Ulrfch, Lt. Col., 03AF. The W.S.C.S. will meet at the church parlors Wednesday, Feb. 1. Devotions will be ted by Mrs. R. E. Ridge, with the lesson by Mrs. Edward Stewart. Mrs. Fred Looft is in charge of the music. Hostesses are Mrs. Alvin Ewing, John Haglund, Ken a Haglund, Harold Anderson, Walter l»unn, Fred Moellering, and Bernard Looft. M. E. Johnson was taken to an Estherville hospital for treatment last week. Another time when a husband is invaluable is in disciplining the children. One word from Daddy to a misbehaving offspring goes further than a half hour lecture from Mom. Maybe it's because when Daddy says he will spank if the youngsters don't straighten up and fly right, he will do just that. But the little daughters of the family, I've noticed, have a way of getting around even Daddy—sometimes. They start practicing their .wiles on the poor unsuspecting male at a very tender age. # • * We women know that the reason the youngsters obey their father better than they do their mother is because father isn't around the house to put up with the kiddies all day. That's why we say so many times, "just wait till your father comes home." Mothers have said that from the beginning of time. In {act, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Eve greeted Adam upon his return home from work with the statement, You'll just have to speak to Cain and Abel. They have been little demons all day!" * * * Sometimes husbimdn are even very handy to have in the kitchen. Lots of them like to cook! It's a different story when it comes to doing the dishes, and they sometimes use more expensive ingredients than the wife thinks the budget will allow, but they do turn out some wonderful food. So many Algona husbands like to cook now and then that Grace is considering a column ot recipes from men cooks. I have collected a couple, but I wish you would help me out and send me some more. If the husbands are too modest about their culinary process, I 'wish you wives would |et the recipe and send it to me in care of the Upper DCS Moines. * * V Tti» Week's Recipe isn't fioro a man cook but I noticed that the husbands were certainly eating a lot uf these little cookies when Berniee Holt served them at a party recently.

In both, the difference is used to give you real stretch-out room in the rear seat. That means easier parking, easier tucking away in family garages, easier maneuvering in crowded traffic. There are some other things too. An extra rear-quarter window not found in standard 4-door Sedans. A different upper structure styling that makes this body-type stand out as something pretty special. Even special names that let you say, "I drive a SUPER 126" or "Mine's a R.OADMASTBH 130," just by way of being different. Yes, we think we hit on a happy idea in the "Longfellows," as they're coining to be known. They are not longer, on the outside, but there's a two-way stretch—in width and length—in the rear compart? merit. • • • You're going to like that—as you'll see by calling on your own Buick t the boys did here really calls for some medals. We gave them the job of coming up with something that was bigger inside—for room and comfort— longer in wheelbase — always important to good riding qualities— yet unbulky and easy-handling in over-all dimensions. Just look how well this tidy number meets these''impossible"speci- fications! Item one—rear-seat cushions are a full foot wider than last year's SUPERS and ROADMASTERS. ' Item two—in every dimension— leg-room, head-room, hip-room, shoulder-room—this rear-seat compartment is bigger than previous models—and nearly four inches longer, fore and aft, thau other 19»0 Buick interiors. Item three — wheel bases are the longest of our 1950 line. On the SUPER, it is 125H" instead of 121Vi"-onthe ROADM ASTER 130K" instead of 126W. let — and here's where the magic ft comes in — the whole car is shorter *w1 ever-all.
