Announcement has been made of a coin show at Storm Lake April 16-17, but I have no details as to hours or place. Clinton will have a one-day show May 1, April is also the month for the well-established Forest City show. - o - 1 have often spoken of the interesting combinations that can be made between stamps, coins and currency. Coin World now tells of a service venture that combines the two and brings the first day of issue concept to coins. In this case, it would be the official first day of release. Stamps have a designated place of first issue prior to general distribution, Coins usually simply have a date for the first general release. No particular attention has been given to this in the past, Now a firm, after some experimentation, has developed a method of affixing the coin to an envelope which is mailed on the release date. As long as the coin remains with the envelope, the day of release designation will be provable. Whenever possible, of course, stamps that relate to the coin would be used. For example, the U. S. Churchill stamp with the the British Crown cancelled on the date they were first released by U. S. banks. The new clad dime will likely have the 6 cent FDR stamp and various values could have been used for the clad quarters. In this case, there could be two combinations. The old 5 cent Washington used with the release date of the clad or the clad used on a first day cover of the new 5 cent Washington, Feb. 22, 1966. By the time you read this, the price information on previous and perhaps future issues will have appeared in Coin World. I don't really know if "first day of release" will catch on. If you can forego this factor, a cheaper way of getting the same visual appeal would be to mount related coins "with" stamp first day covers^ This t could be done with the pocket currency pages, which I find excellent for covers and blocks or attractive frames could be made, using a colored card background with the cover mounted and a cutout made for the coin. I understand the firm plans to extend operations to several popular foreign countries and service the covers there. - o - I mentioned in a previous column the excellent 3-D portrait of Pope Paul which appeared in the December issue of Venture. Thanks to a good friend I was able to get a few of these and have made three frames, combining the portrait with hobby items. One previously noted was the use of the UN visit cover with a metallic portrait of the Pope for a cachet. The second frame makes use of the 500 lira Vatican silver coin with the Papal coat of arms, plus two attractive triangle stamps from Monaco with the picture of Pope Pius XH issued in 1951. The third makes use of stamps from Spain, Monaco and France, all with religious themes, with some commemorating important events in the history of the church, None of the material used is particularly expensive. With so much emphasis on value, it is often forgotten that much can be done with interesting but inexpensive material. Of course, there are always those who will abruptly dismiss anything that doesn't have a substantial price tag. - o Activity continues hot and heavy to the four varieties of the 1965 Canadian silver dollar. The price range now for type 4 is around $14 and up. I note, however, that nearly every dealer in the Canadian section has them for sale and by the roll. It is not single coin collector demand that is pushing the price up. Comparisons are made with the mintage of a 1947 dollar which is quite expensive. It is well to remember that this was before coin collecting had its big boom and before there was much purchasing by the roll for investment. Hence, a relatively small per cent of the 1947 mintage was saved in uncirculated condition. Most of these type 4's by contrast have been saved and investors are passing the supply back and forth. The time for profit taking would be soon, if not now. It will be interesting to see if the 1966 dates will have similar die differences. - or A lot of the pleasures of coll- Uag contacts here ?and abrpatf. jpVhat is - '"hot hard"- fe r cam<T !? by; t in one country may be virtually unobtainable in another. In response to an an ad in Linns, I recently sent two envelopes used by me while in Korea to a German collector. I suppose Korean APO covers would be very scarce there. In return, I received several useful items, including an army coVer from Saxony used during the 7 week war between Austria and Prussia with Saxony on the losing Austrian side. How valuable? I don't know, but where would I find one in dealers' stocks here ? throw of their former pupil, President Nkrumah of Ghana. penn has turned out some very fine students but some lemons and Nkrumah was the sourest lemon of all. After visiting his country last September, this column reported that he called himself "The Redeemer," was spending his government into bankruptcy, and was about as high-handed as Hitler. Hi: downfall was a triumph not only for democracy in West Africa but for the neighboring president of the Ivory Coast, Houphouet-Boigny, who has followed the free enterprise system as against Ghanian socialism in spite of pressure from Nkrumah. - o - —BACKSTAGE POLITICS- Dick Gregory, the Negro comedian and civil rights battler, indicates that Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York is bankrolling him to run for mayor of Chicago against the veteran Democrat, Mayor Daley. Gregory has already started to hire campaign workers for his battle for mayor . .. In the upcoming bitter Democratic Senatorial primary battle in Michigan between Assistant Secretary of State Soapy Williams and Mayor Jerome Cavanagh of Detroit, President Johnson privately is for Williams. The former governor fought bitterly against Johnson in 1960, was a strong supporter of John F. Kennedy. But after Johnson became Vice President and President, Williams became one of his most devoted backers. The two men now get along very well. - o —WAR WOES-President Johnson is following the usual pattern of wartime presidents. Like Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, he is concentrating more and more on the war, spending less time with old friends, and becoming quite irritable over interruptions. He has told visitors that he is just as disturbed as Sen. Fulbright over getting involved in Viet Nam, recalling that when he was Senator from Texas, he opposed sending troops there. However, when he became president, he has pointed out, American troops were already committed and it was too late to argue about whether the U. S. should be involved. - o - —COST OF THE CROWN— Miss Sehiltz Of Bancroft Will Wed Lakotan JIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIHHIIIIIIII By Drow Poui*§on WASHINGTON - The overthrow of President Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana is much more significant than merely a revolt against one man. It probably puts a stop at least for the time being - to the campaign of the communists, particularly the Chinese, to take over West Africa. in no part of Africa, with the possible exeption of nearby Guinea, was there such an intense drive to undermine the democratic system which the British had left behind when they gave Ghana its independence. Nkrumah, trained first at Lincoln university and later'studying at the University of Pennsylvania, was first considered a model leader for democracy, But power went to his head, In addition to calling himself the "Son of God" and "The Redeemer" and building some hundred statues of him* self in various parts of Ghana, a la Joe Stalin, Nkrumah em* barked on a definite campaign of socialism. He established the government-operated Black Star Steamship Line and the Ghana Airline • though his country could support neither - and proceeded to nationalize almost every in* dustry in the country. Nkrumah formed a state mining corporation, Ghana Tire Service Corporation, the Ghana cannery, the Paper conversion Corporation, and the State Farms Cor* Devine, Neal Giddings, Tommy Angus, Lyle Karels and Sydney Karels. Also in the program was special folk and country music by Dennis Weinke of Cylinder, a skit by cubs of Den L A fitting finale to the evening was a candlelight closing ceremony by Cubs of Den HI and everyone present singing, "God Bless America". Den Mothers in charge of the Banquet were Mesdames Dean Mcfllravy, Clifford pankuk, John Spear, Ron Jurgens, Howard Redemske, and Ray Devine. Bernard Miller is Cubmaster. - o - Brothers are David, Dwight and Neal. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Steward are the grandparents, Mrs. Nettie Giddings is the owner of a new T. V. set. Her's was the lucky nams drawn for the T. V. given away by Vogel's Grocery Saturday. Pancake Supper The Whittemore C. D.

Uppef 0«i MdtfWi*! poration, a system of government farms patterned after Russia's. He built up a big army, navy, and air force- though Ghana had no need for them unless it assumed the offensive against its neighbors, And when Ghana collected a reserve to insure cocoa growers against price drops, Nkrumah spent the money on other things, As a result Nkrumah started using the printing presses and frantically tried to borrow $800 million from the united States, Britain, and France, When rebuffed, he went hat in hand to the international Monetary Fund, which also turned him down, As a result, citizens of Ghana began migrating out of the country the same way East Germans migrated to West Germany before the Berlin Wall was built, in the adjacent ivory Coast, a free enterprise country, thousands of Ghanians took up residence, Finally Nkrumah worked secretly with Chinese agents to foment revolution against neighboring West African governments. -PENNSYLVANIA'S LEMON** Alumni and former teachers of the university ot Pennsylvania, of which this writer is one, are delighted at the over* The Queen of England is paid $2,800,000 a year by the British government, most of which goes to housekeeping expenses. The cost of maintaining three castles is $580,000 a year, plus servants' wages of $880,000. Prince Philip thinks this is too much and has been trying to whittle it down. He wants to close the antiquated kitchen in Buckingham palace and let a private caterer handle state dinners. The Queen is the second richest woman in the world, ranking second only to the wife of the Aga Khan. The Queen of Thailand and the Queen of the Netherlands are close behind. Elizabeth's wealth results from the fact that her great-grandfather, prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, was a thrifty investor. Victoria inherited $240,000 from an eccentric named Neild, and Prince Albert invested it in industry and real estate. He was the wise guy who bought up sandringham Palace for $880,000 (it's now worth $14,400,000) and Balmoral for $50,240. (It's now worth $9,700,000.) The Queen also owns portraits worth $72,000,000 and when she steps out on a state occasion, the crown on her head plus the jewels around her neck are worth $9,600,000. Elizabeth is a thrifty spender, and once when the family car was hit in a motor accident she took the car around to the garage herself to make sure she was not overcharged. Her racing stables make money when she has a good season, and her horse Aureole once won $173,880, - o - Mr. and Mrs, Walter Sehiltz of Bancroft, announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Mary Margaret, above, to Louis Lee Lappe, Jr., son of Mr, and Mrs. Louis Lappe Sr. of Lakota, Miss Sehiltz attended St. John's school and graduated in 1964. She attended Mankato Commercial College and is employed as a secretary - cashier for Thorpe Loan and Thrift Co. in Blue Earth, Minn, Me. Lappe attended school at Lakota and is employed with his father in trucking. An April 16th wedding is being planned. the most important TV stations in the country, plus one entire network - NBC - are in the hands not of school boards or universities but of big defense contractors. Meanwhile the TV networks are making so much money that they don't know what to do with it. Variety magazine, bible of the TV-radio trade, recently reported that the networks were going into such diverse fields as airline transportation and termite extermination. "The networks are being pushed into diversification as the only way of plowing their enormous profits back into business," Variety reported. "This is evolving a uniform breed of the TV radio magnate, the broadcaster-industrialist." The Justice Department has forced the motion picture companies to divest themselves of their theatres, so that the Holly^ ; wood prbducets cannot show their- r pioduct'in kept theatres. • This"; 'divestiture" has brought new com-" 1 petition and a vast improvement in motion pictures. The TV networks, however, require most of their filmed productions to be done under their direction, thus cutting themselves in on both the production profit and the profit from selling advertising time. Because of this ban on outside producers, fewer and fewer independents are able to exist today. Burl Churches Have Special Lenten Plans BURT - Plans for Lenten church service at the Burt churches are completed. Joint services of the Burt and Good Hope churches will be held at 7:30 p. m. each Wednesday evening, alternating between the two churches. Several area ministers will exchange pulpits.

Y. group assist in each of the services, Good Friday there will be Union Services with the Burt Methodist church. - o - —TV PROFITS SOAR- Most people don't realize that TV advertising has soared to the point where NBC had billings of around half a billion dollars last year. This gave NBC about 24 per cent of the huge business of its parent company, the Radio Corporation of America, one of the bigger defense contractors of the nation, This is an aspect in which some Congressmen are interested. How much is national policy in* fluenced by defense contractor* owned television? TV is a medium which some educators consider almost as important as the public school, yet some of BLUE-GOLD BANQUET "Strong For America" was the theme of the annual Blue and Gold Banquet held by Burt Cub Scouts, Den Mothers, parents and friends Tuesday night, There were 100 attending.
