ALGONA UPPER DES MOINES Tuesday, February 7, 1950 SECTION TWO Ravings emus AEEBB A LlilU ol Thll, • LUil* of Thai; Net Much oi Anything. A spectacle heating system organization is being perfected in Algona. And the organization hopes to build, manufacture and sell heating systems to attach to specs so that in sub-zero weather the glasses don't frost over the minute one steps inside and out of the cold. All spec wearers know what a nuisance it is to have to take off the specs the minute you're in out of the cold, so to speak. And word is out that the fair sex spec wearers also will organize an auxiliary group here to help in the production of the spec heating system. F,rank Zender states that the system will consist of a small electric heater which can be kept in a vest pocket and then a wire will be carried to the specs and so the glasses are kept at a heating point against the zero breezes. —o— Of course there have been many suggestions made as to the proper treatment of specs in cold weather, some of them seem most practical and no doubt there will be many sales especially to spec wearers in the northern half of the United States. Officer Albert Weishaar says he can do without heating systems because on account of he carries two specs, and when one frosts over, he just puts on the second. And Gene Schemel says he doesn't wear his specs outside in cold weather, hence isn't troubled with frost. Dr. M. G. Bpurne uses Clearsite, a liquid which covers specs and frost doesn't phase in the least. And Elmer Kelly says that a good frost preventive on the glass is to daub a bit of grease on "em when you go out in the cold, while Frank Schattschneider suggests that a bit of frost shield off a car can be pasted on the glasses and that sure takes care of visibility in zero weather. Hay Colberg says one way to keep frost off the glasses is to walk backwards a few yards before you enter a building and so no frost, but John Romer told me that this didn't do his glasses any good because on account of he had tried it. John Diekmann -suggests that v ir a bit of butter is spread on glasses' the frost doesn't affect them. Chief Cecil McGinnis told me that if spec wearers would give the glasses a dip in salt wnter when they leave the house there would be no frost on them all that day. Bob Johnston says that Glasswax is good dope to wash the glasses with, because on account of that keeps the frost off. Marc Moore has a good idea and says that in every business place or house a basin of warm water should be placed just inside the door and when a frost bitten spec victim enters all he had to do was dip 'em in the hot water for quick elimination of the frost. It will be seen thai spec wear ers are going to be interested in the new spectacle heating sys tern. Never have to bother washing br wiping your specs during the zero weather days. A meeting has been called for next week at four bells and at which time officers will be elected and promotion of the manufacture of the spec heating heating system wili be taken up in Algona. Last Thursday wasn't my birthday but it was groundhog day, another big day in the year because on account of the groundhog predicts the weather for the next six weeks. February is a month of big days, however, with Lincoln's birthday, Wash*- ington's birthday and valentine's day. And the banks and the liquor stores and the post office close on those days and I'm in favor of 'em closing on ground- flog day, too. And once every four years we have leap year and hat's a day when we should shut up everything, and celebrate with some leaping. And Frank Schattschneider is now a member of the Algona -offee Gulper Club and he has the distinction of having the longest name in the list of over 10,)00 gulper members. Another ong-name gulper in Algona is iarold Kuchenreuther but he is two letters short of Frank's name. Now if those two boys gulped a cup of Java for each letter in their name every day they'd really be doing some gulping, so to speak. Mrs. Kracht Of Seneca In Hosp. Suffers Stroke Seneca — Mrs. Gottlieb Kracht is a patient at St. Ann hospital at Algona as the result of a stroke which ' she suffered on Tuesday.
