(Nels Isaacson Photo) Ravings oo CHIUII MEEK A Llltl* of ThU, • Little of That; Not Much ol Anything Tomorrow, the 30th, is Hal- lowe'en and while it is more sedately observed now there was a time when Hallowe'en was a day of plenty activity along some lines of what in the old days was considered fun and frolic. In the old days if a gent had a joke he wanted to play on an acquaintance he found Hallowe'en the time to do it. And some of the so-called jokes in those days were quite extensive, in fact sometimes quite expensive. However, today Hallowe'en is observed and practiced in the right spirit by the greater majority of our citizens And in another six days we proceed to the polls to mark our X in the voting squares on the large ballot, and it is a large ballot this year. Yep, there will be ballots containing marks for both republican and democratic candidates as well as the ballots holding just the one X which covers all the candidates in one line-up, so to speak. However, judging from what is heard pro and con, there seems to be an indication that there will be a lot of voting done on candidates in both tickets, so to speak. But that is just another indication which covers the freedom of the American. He is given the opportunity to vote pro and con, on the different tickets, as he pleases. And what better freedom could you ask for? For instance, right now in many of the foreign countries there is plenty battling going on practically over individual freedom of citizenship. And that is one thing that never has and never will be taken over in these United States. For instance, we presume to have I .three political parties, the Republicans, the Democrats and the Socialists, but in every case their candidates are also lined up on the one ticket and so freedom in voting is purely evident. And that's what we call a free country and that it certainly is, so to speak. Yep, don't forget to visit the polls November 6th, and mark your crosses in squares which you think for the best interests of all in this free country, so to speak. Make it a point to cast your vote Tuesday, and vote as you think best, regardless of any political angle, so to speak. Yes, be sure to vote, November 6. I tip my hai to the city department which covers street candi- tions because on account of there surely has been a dandy good job done in the past few weeks over the leaf situation in our streets. There is no question but that tons of those leaves have been raked and scraped up in the street gutters because on account of quite a number oil folks just raked their yard leaves into the gutter and let it. go at that. Of course it is hardly fair to expect the city to take care of the leaf situation but in many instances that has been the case this year, so to speak. And we all realize and appreciate by this time that the term of leaf falling is a considerably huge one, but the town gents have met up with the problem in a fine and dandy shape. Congratulations, ' gents, on the fine and dandy shape in which you have handled this situation. It was Thursday evening of last week that I enjoyed a supper of ebelskyver at the .Mr and Mrs Heinie Stebritz home here and was it ever an affair of good taste, good eating and good ebelskyver, so to speak. Yes, you have guessed it—ebelskyer are of Danish origin, and Mrs Stebritz, being a Dane, she sure knows how to bake Ebelskyver. And me being a Dane I sure know how to enjoy them because on account of me being ten years old when I came to the United States I had plenty and plenty of ebelskyver because on account of their pop^ Parity in Denmark, so to speak. Yep, I'm in favor of a citizen's committee being selected for the purpose of instituting the ebels- kyver as a food project in Algona and I'm sure the deal would go over big. There are thirteen Hansens, all Danes, listed in the telephone book, and there are five Jensens, and there are three Nielsens, and eight Sorensens, and seven Christensens, and so forth and so on, and I'm sure that we could find a lot more of Danes and by organizing into a group we could put the ebelskyv atop all foods and so institute the Danish Ebelskyver Association in Kossuth county. Now there's an idea, and we Danes should get together and institute such an organization because on account or ebelskyver sure constitute the tops in baked eatables, so to speak. Lotts Creek 4-H Has New Member The regular meeting of the Lotts Creek Leaders 4-H Club, was held the evening of Oct. 15 at the Lotts Creek School.
