6-AI§ ono (la.) Upper De* Mc!nM Tuesday, Nov. 6, 1956 Rwings CO by CHRIS REE8S A Little of Thu, a MUU of That; Not Much of Anything Well, it is today that voters will settle all the questions which fnce candidates in both parties, so to speak. And, according to pre- elections discussions it really looks like the vote today was going to run into high numbers. Of course we have two high top candidates for the presidency Eisenhower and Stevenson, and here's hoping Mr Stevenson gives Ike a worry because on account of that Stevenson gent would make a top president of this country, plenty smart, knows all the angles which take part in presidential performance, so to speak. Yes, he's a democrat and of course that means that some gents won't or can't vote for him, but nevertheless he's going to make a god run and I do believe that, if elected, he'd give honest to goodness real service to the people of this country. Look back some years to the time Roosevelt was elected, and I am sure that there were many republicans who voted for him that were never ashamed of it. At any rate it rather looks quite favorable for Mr Stevenson, according to hear-says and discussions by the gent voters, so far. And with election today we are two months closer to Christmas. Does beat the dickens how time passes. About the time we get out to vote then we begin to think about what are we going to get for him or her for Christmas. Of course election day and Christmas day are both important in our every-day existence. Maybe we're inclined to like election day the better of the two days because on account of it's not as expensive. All you give away on election day is your vote and that doesn't cost as much as a Christmas gift for her or him, so to speak. Yet they are both important days, the joy you give to one with a Christmas present and, too, the joy you give to a candidate with your vote. However, the election deal is as joyful to the ambitious candidate as would be a pair of socks for Christinas, so to speak. Of course it may be he has to kick in a bit to help in candidate's expense. However, this doesn't happen too often and, after all, it might be that the candidate would prove a top and high ringing officer who held the interests of all the voter? at top and so acted and voted while in office, so to speak. So, permit me to suggest that you take time off and cast your vote. It is one of the angles in this free country which we should never desert. Yes, _ don't ever pass up your vote, it is one of the freedom activities of this United States and should never, never, be neglected. Please make special note of this item— be sure to cast your vote—you owe it to your country and to yourself, so to speak. Another indication thai we are about to accept winter with its chils. and ice and snow, is to note how the gents are taking on winterizing their cars, an indication they are not taking any chances on freezing their motive powers, so to speak. And those of you older gents will remember what a nuisance wintemine vour car was in the old day. Drive to an oil station every couple of weeks and have the attendant drop in a pint or a quart of antifreeze, that's the way it wa? taken care of in the old days, and it was unhandy, I admit. Today you just drive in and the attendant pours anti-freeze into your radiator and the car is taken care of for months. What a difference as compared with the old days. I am reminded of many a gent who neglected his anti-freeze refill and many and many car radiators were ruined or nearly ruined, and that sure was no fun. And I am reminded of that in the old days there were many oar owners who saw to it that every so often a quart of anti-freefce was added to the radiator. Yes, those were the days when there was really much trouble with frost during the winter months. I am reminded of one time I drove from Des Moines to Marshalltown, about 80 miles, and I stopped and visit- Hello!.... that you, Bill? s-a-a-a-y ! STRICTLY BUSINESS BE SURE SEE The New '57 PONTIACS FRIDAY! 50 FREE PRIZES to be given away I I ! ERNIE WILLIAMS PONTIAC - CADILLAC On Courthouse Square — Algona "Get her* fMt enough this time* sir T ed with 16 gents who were having trouble with their cars because of neglect of anti-freeze activities. So it just looks like there were many angles toward proper care of a car and antifreeze seems one of the most important during the winter seasons, so to speak. I promise you this— I'll never neglect my car radiator during the winter months—it can really run into money, so to speak. New Pastor And Family At LuVerne and daughters of Kanawha.
