WINKEL DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY OF KOSSUTH COUNTY Graduate State University of Iowa Law School Veteran • Criminal Law Experience (Inserted and to be paid for by Gordon Winkel) •••••••• VOTE FOR Meet Your NEW NEIGHBORS The couple above. Mr and Mrs Bob Barnes, shown with their son, Bobby, 2, and daughter, Janice Sue, eight months, are quite different than most Algona families. Besides being newcomers, having arrived here m the middle of July, Mr and Mrs Barnes hold a total of three college degrees between them. Mrs Barnes is ahead m that Bob is project engineer at the local Weidenhoff plant, and it's his job to gel a line on new ideas for new products which could be manufactured by the firm. Born at Osceola, he attended school and graduated from high school there. He has always been a "nut" on radio, look it up in high school, was a radio technician during a hitch m the navy, is a licensed radio operator and has a mobile sla- lion in his auto. . Bob enrolled at Iowa Slale College at Ames after his release from navy duly and gol his degree in electrical engineering in 1950. Following graduation, he was employed by Ihe P. R. Mallory firm in Indianapolis, Ind. which manufactures electronic components, unlil coming here this He met Mrs Barnes, then Coral Moore, right after arrival al Iowa Slale in the summer of 1946. Their meeting was due to a dinner exchange between dormitories and both drew number 16, which proved to be Iheir lucky number, for they were married al Batavia Jan. 4, 1947. .-.,.,.. «.,„ Coral was born, raised and educated al Eldon. She served in the WAVES and then wenl to Iowa Slale. She got a degree in household equipment, taught for a year, re- lumed lo Iowa Slale and received a home economics education degree in 1950. She taught when the Barnes family lived in Iridianapo- lis, but had lo be content lo teach in the elementary grades due lo a quirk in education laws. Actually, Mrs Barnes has never laughl in a high school, despite the fact she is definitely qualified, and highly, to do so. Mr and Mrs Barnes like Algona, and plan to stick around for a long time. They are another pleasant addition lo our city. (UDM Flashfoto-Engraving) |}| Tidbits From Evelyn 1 was sottf to heft* of Jh* ous sickness of Tom Akre, a friend of many years standing. I have known Tom and his late wife since way back when they had a grocery and feed store in the old Heihschn building (the former Normal school) which was razed when Bill Dau built his garage. Mrs Akre, Lizzie Post, mother, and I have had many a bridge battle — and when I say battle I don't mean we played for blood. H was always a purely social game with lots of conversation and coffee. Don and his wife and children have been here from Jefferson City, Mo., ever since Tom became seriously sick and hospital. was taken to St. Ann They stayed at Clear Mr and Mr* Waiter *wiln*f have had recent word from their son-in-law and daughter Sgt. and Mrs Clarence Krug that they hava arrived at Manila, thelphil- lipiries. They had left San Francisco, Calif., a few weeks ago and when out 700 miles, the plane developed engine trouble. The plane returned to San Francisco leaving not many hours latef. Another stop was at Hawaii where the passengers spent a few days while other repairs were being made. The Krugs had plenty of opportunity for sight-seeing and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Everyone was kind and helpful with the children. There was Tommy, three year old son of Mr and Mrs Harry Skogstrom came up with this the other day. "I wish I was a girl." His puzzled mother asked "Why," and was amazed at his reply, So I could have ruffles on my pants. Who knows what the future holds. Maybe he will become a designer of women's clothing. » * * You should hear .the stories Emma Crouch tells about raising sweet potatoes. Of course, she is expert at all garden crops, but till she told it I never knew sweet potatoes take root from branches, I'll call them for lack of a better word, and lack of knowledge, too, but from what she said my impression was they grow a vine which takes root much like raspberry shrubs. At each place they attach themselves to the ground, they take root and potatoes grow. » * * I read an item recently about the 14,000 votes that are lost in Iowa because people have moved away. Most of them have gone to California. Why didn't Horace Greeley keep his mouth shut. Too many are heeding his advice^ Go .yvest, young man, Go west. I saw the ash trays and lapel pins the democrats sold at their recent breakfast at the hotel. They are kinda cute. I was reminded of the donkey and elephant planters I had a few years ago. They sat on a window sill and one day when Mrs Gilles was dusting, she knocked the donkey off. He fell to his doom, worse than "Hiimpty-Dumptv. The elephant is still intact, stor- CHARLES PLATHE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR SUPERVISOR FIRST DISTRICT - KOSSUTH COUNTY TERM STARTING JAN. 1. 1958 A LIFELONG RESIDENT OF KOSSUTH-RIVERDALE TWP. •^Township Trustee for 12 Years • Served as Commodity Credit Sealing Inspector • 3 Years on Farm Home Administration board for farm loans • Served on appraisal board for county road work.

I always told Mrs Gilles it was lucky it was the donkey, not the elephant that suffered the fall. I can't blame her for purposeful wreckage, for the donkey represents her convictions. » * » Mr and Mrs John Hayes recently attended "Parents Day" at Drake University where their son Kirk is enrolled. There were coffee, teas, parents classes and ever so many things to entertain the fathers a'nd mothers. * + •>• About a year ago Mr and Mrs Edward Boyce, son-in-law and ' daughter of Mr and Mrs Floyd Turner, moved to Canada, Toronto I believe. The town doesn't matter. It's the Canada that does. They had lived in Des Moines where Mr Boyce is in the insurance business.' The company gave him a promotion and sent him to Canada. Mrs Boyce wasn't much in favor of it, but she behaved as all good wives do — packed what had been decided upon to take, and followed her man. A year there has convinced them they definitely DO NOT LIKE IT and they are moving back. Mr Boyce is going to a school of instruction at Omaha for a brief period and while he is there his wife will be here with her parents. Hazel and Frank Vera recently had very red faces and the reason is this. Hazel was asked to make a contribution to the recent bake sale by the Royal Neighbor lodge. Hazel suggested home made bread and the ladies thought that would be just wonderful. Hazel made the bread, nice light, feathery loaves and sent them to Hood's by Frank. When Frank told his errand, that he was delivering his wife's contribution to the bake sale, you can imagine his chagrin when Mr Hood said, "The sale yesterday." Hazel says it's this Friday-Saturday business that got her muddled and threw her for a loop. I was pleasantly entertained by the Methodist Intermediate Youth Group Sunday afternoon about 5:30. About fifteen members with their sponsor, Mrs Joe Tschetter assisted. Mrs Glen Graham and Mrs Everett Steven, called on me, sang two hymns and gave a brief prayer. It is nice to be thought of. From here the group went to the Roberts Nursing Home, and they had several other calls to make. ~y Lake with Aria's' parents, Mr and Mrs Heetland and drove back and forth each day to be with Tom. Donna has missed so much school it was thought best for her to return 'home, stay with friends and go to school. Don took her back — Dick Post furnished the vehicle and piloted his plane — a cozy arrangement till Dick and Don came back th^ following day. At Ames, the wind having become so violent, they landed the plane and "bedded down" in a hotel for the night. How much 16nger the Akres stay in vicinity depends on Tom's condition. * * • The James Walker family boasts of five birthday anniversaries which fell on holidays. Taking them in succession, th§ son Jim was born May 17 which is a Norwegian holiday comparable to our July Fourth and like ours is called Independence Day. Janice was born on Mothers Day, Rosina on Fathers Day, Charles on July 4, and John on Thanksgiving day. Of course Mothers, Fathers and Thanksgiving days fluctuate, but in the year they were born, their birthdays fell on those holidays. * * * A letter from my cousin Mel« vin Henderson, whom many will remember, states his daughter Gayle has returned to her second year at Stanford University. She has been made Secretary of the Executive Committee of the sophomore class. It breaks my heart, this part of his letter, for the groves were so beautiful, especially when in bloom. He writes "California is changing so fast that you had better come out before all the landmarks are gone. Did you know that there is not a single orange grove remaining between Pomona and Claremont? And very soon there will be none between Pomona and Ontario. All trees are torn up, and then come the shanties on a slab. Most of them have less floor space than our home and feature 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a den. The rooms are so small they will barely accomodate a bed. I honestly believe Algona has had more nice homes built from what we saw in the past 3 years than this entire valley." Hurrah for Algona — now if we had more industries we'd be O.K.! NOTtS Of SERVICE MEN a stop at Guam, thence to the Phillipines where Set. and Mrs Krug and family will be located for two years.

STUDER DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR COUNTY AUDITOR OF KOSSUTH COUNTY EXPERIENCED - CAPABLE - COURTEOUS YOUR VOTE WILL BE APPRECIATED ARTHRITIS ? I have been wonderfully blessed in being restored to active life after being crippled in nearly every joint in my body and with muscular soreness from head to foot. I had Rheumatoid Arthritis and other forms of Rheumatism, hands deformed and my ankles were set. Limited space prohibits telling you more here but if you will write me I will reply at once and tell you how I received this wonderful relief. Mrs. Lela S. Wier 2805 Arbor Hills Drive — 436 . P. O. Box 2695 Jackson 7, Mississippi 42-43 THE SALES TAX AND MR. DEWEL If each of the 50 members of the Senate made 320 Motions, as Mr Dewel claims he did, that would amount to 16,000 Motions — truly a ridiculous number. Perhaps this indicates that the other members of the Senate made a practice of considering their votes carefully on each issue, instead of jumping up to make a Motion at every opportunity. I do not believe is is important how many Motions a Senator makes — How he Votes is what is important. # Hi As Long As Mr. Dewei Raised The Issue Let's Talk About The Sales Tax MR DEWEL: In recent newspaper advertisements you said you voted against the increase in Sales Tax. I was astounded at your statement because most voters know you sponsored, promoted and VOTED FOR the increase in Sales Tax. YOU VOTED YES on Senate File No. 237 to increase the Sales Tax to 3%, on February 22, 1955. Your YES vote is recorded on Page 383 of the Senate Journal. Again, on April 19, 1955, YOU VOTED YES on House File 522 to raise the Sales Tax to 2! 2%. Your YES vote is recorded on Page 985 of the Senate Journal. The only conclusion I can reach it that you are intentionally trying to mislead the voters. Let's be frank and honest, Mr Dewel - YOU VOTED FOR the increase in Sales Tax and you should not deny it. VOTERS If I am elected, I will represent the voters of this district, and I will do my best to further their interest* I have no other ambitions. And I will vote for return to 2% Sales Tax if given the opportunity. BUKIi N DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR STATE SENATE KOSSUTH - PAIO AITO - EMMET COUNTIES
