AIN STEM EY JULIAN CHRISCHIUII Twtet to** jy ft* LIKE THE old western "ghost towns," St. Paul, Minn. lias a ghost stadium" and it is just about as deserted as any abandoned mining town out west . . . hoping to lure major league baseball to St. Paul and prior to the transfer of the old Washington Senators to the Twin Cities, St. Paul floated a huge multi-million dollar bond issue and constructed a beautiful stadium along Snelling Ave. in North St. Paul in the early 1960's. The stadium will seat some 17,000 persons, has a huge blacktop parking lot, plus press box and the works ... St. Paul felt that this stadium might be enough to lure a major league team but as it turned out, both St. Paul and Minneapolis went together to bring the present Twins to Bloomington. Now tliis stadium sits almost deserted ... it is used only a few days a year for exhibition w-estling shows, etc. probably most of the 17,000 seats have never been sat . its I'ulurc is indeed bleak! in THERE'S A STORY making the rounds of the farmer who called the TV shop and told the repairman to hurry out . . . "This new set you sold me doesn't work," he told the man. "I can get only two stations — one has Lyndon Johnson on all clay long and the other has Hubert Humphrey on." So the repairman went to work outside and in a few minutes returned to the house. "I've found your trouble — it's in the Icadin wires," he told the disgruntled farmer. "One wire was hooked up to the manure spreader and the other to the windmill." * * * IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE but there was % million dollars worth of farm machinery on display on "machinery row" at the Kossuth County Fair last week! SPEAKING OF TV, an ex-Algonan is active in setting up cable TV franchises in Minnesota ... he is Burns Nugent, son of the Lee Nugents, who lived here for many years in the 1930's and 1940's when Dr. Nugent was a well-known dentist. The younger Nugent told us recently he has received approval from Hibbing and Virginia, Minn, for cable TV and his company is also putting in cable TV at Clinton, Fairfield and Decorah. ' He said Minnesota does not require eleptipns for cable TV franchises and in fact, Nugent's company is testing the Iowa law requiring such an election at Decorah where cable TV is being put in without an election . . . this is the first test of this law, to our knowledge, in Iowa and should the law be found unconstitutional, it would mean cable TV systems could be put in towns without an election but with only city council approval. IT'S TOO BAD our ex-newswriter Erma Lea Deim doesn't have a r on aop seven or so ... because mavhe in 10 or 15 years he might date and marry a young 7-year old girl who recently moved to Algona . . . her name? Penny Nichols. She's the daughter of Sgt. and Mrs. George Nichols. And then she would be Penny Nichols Deim! BANCROFT'S DENIS Menke has been hitting at only a mer'iocre olio this season (.249) but some of his base blows have been timely, particularly in recent days . . . three times in the past two weeks he has driven across the winning run, twice against San Francisco and again in the Los Angeles game a week ago. THE RAY AGARDS of LuVerne were returning from a three-week trip to the west coast a few days ago and stopped for dinner at Little America, Wyo., one night, enroute to Las Vegas . . . and while shopping in a gift shop there, they looked up and saw their daughter and family, the Cecil Korslunds of Fort Dodge.
