.., .* AWANtt THURSDAY, AUG. 18, 1966 •**••••«••«»•«••••«••••. ), t. D. •••••••••••••••••••A*** NOW THAT ALL the women have loaded up on the short skirt deals the fashion bandits are getting ready to lower the hem line into a hohum line. This forces the girls to buy new clothes because it's clanged hard to lengthen a skirt. As far as the boys are concerned the short skirts are no longer noticed much and legs are no novelty. This of course means the girls will have to get some more interest in things and there's nothing more interesting than something that's covered unless it's a hole in a newspaper that someone has cb'pped an item from. You always wonder what it was. As for skirts, shorts,, bathing suits, and whatever those tight pants are the girls are wearing, there isn't a heck of a lot secret, Ah well, it was fun while it lasted. * * * SEEMS TO AN OLD duffer that the television commercials are timed at either the young or the old — the middle age people are left to shift for themselves without the help of gents advising them how to be popular and not offensive. The ciggy and soft drink blurbs are for the younger generation whose activity while lapping up the juice makes an elder gent a bit tired just watching. As for the elder gent there are some woeful commercials on what happens when the mouth-falsies aren't anchored right or have been left to stew in their own juice too long. Of course for the elderly there's also that pitch for regularity. The Old Goat wonders what the alcoholic content is of the stuff that's good for tired blood. A few snorts might put a little life into the old carcass as long as the joy juice lasted. It might fool the head that way but the bones and what used to be muscles would complain rather bitterly. * * * THE OLD GOAT regrets n'ot having some Beatle records to burn. Not because of what one of the mop-haired English gents had to say but because they make lousy sounds. Another thing that irks is the silly girls paying good money to hear this kind of junk and the squealing all through the racket. Frankly the Old Goat thinks these kids should have their bloomers dusted in the woodshed. The Queen of England decorated these yow- lers, not because of their contribution to music, but because of their contribution of good A- ^rican. dollars to the, English "~ ~"or&: ? Anyway'' these w ~ nred present-day groaners and. yelpers just can't be proud of the brains among those who adore them. * * * THE NEW HAIR style is called the Astro after the space efforts to get men in space and to the moon. The new style features orbit bangs and comet tails. The Old Goat didn't know he was in such fashion because in a wind that's what the Old Goat has — a few orbit bangs and some comet tails. Frankly looking at the girls in the demon register the Old Goat couldn't tell any difference between the old and the new. * * * THE UNLUCKY two-buck bill is on the way out and are being taken in by the treasury gents as fast as they can get their hot little hands on them. No more will be printed and they will go the way of the three-cent piece and the $10,000 bill. The $2 paper was great for the gents who bet on the bangtails but the average person avoided them for various reasons. Funny isn't it —now they're being called in they become valuable to collectors. The Old Goat wishes he were unlucky enough to have a bale of them put away. * * * FISH DON'T like human scent. So a fisherman has this cure: Place two shots of bourbon in a glass, add a spoonful of sugar, pour into an atomizer and spray it over the body — of the fisherman. The Old Goat likes the solution up to the point of putting 'A in an atomizer. Why not drink it and let it ooze out! 60 CD of A members in candlelight services PICTURED ARE the sixty Catholic Daughters of America who made up the living candlelight ros- ary'at the C D of A's Golden Jubilee Held Sunday August 7 at St. Cecelia's church in Algona.

This growth typifies how our local Algona industries are growing — Pioneer Seed Corn sales have been growing so rapidly the past few years, more room for seed corn is necessary. This is the third Behlen building the Pioneer Hi-Bred Corn Company has purchased this year. The two other buildings are at other plant locations. The Algona plant manager is Herb Hedlund. The Cowan Corporation built the concrete hoppered floors and the Becker Construction is erecting the new building.
