(le.) Upper DM Molrm fhor«d«ry, March 44, 1966 , CROSSWORD PUZZLES CAN BE a great deal of fun, but until recently I never paid much attention to them. But one day when the Algona Upper Des Moines came, I happened to have a pencil In my hand so I worked the Crossword in that It wasn't long until I became hooked. Now I do the UDM and one in a magazine every week and one every day in the local morning paper. - o CROSSWORD PUZZLES CAN BE considered setting-up exercises for writers. I have the type of brain that retains all sorts of miscellaneous Information and forgets important things like telephone numbers and the multiplication table. In Crosswords I've finally found a use for some of that learning. And I've learned some new words - some of which I didn't really care to know | - o- I WONDER WHO IN THE WORLD makes up Crossword puzzles. Perhaps the redactor (editor) can tell me. (Editor's note: Not me!) Nobody ever seems to have a by-line with them and they certainly must be hard to compose. Some of them are mighty hard to solve also, although I'm doing better now that I've found out It is not cheating to look up words in the regular or crossword dictionary. - o- WITH ALL THIS NEW Information, plus allowance for waste, I decided to tell you about another new hobby, fishing in terms I gathered from Crosswords. - o PERE (FATHER, FR.) and ego (self) decided to hie (hasten) down to the arenase (sandy) shore to try out piscatoral (pertaining to fish) prowess (skill). The neap (tide) was right, the sol (sun) was eoan (pertaining to dawn) and there was not much agar (seaweed) in the agua (water, Sp.) It was too cold for natant (swimming) so I decided to ret (soak) my pedal digits (toes). OUTDOO FUN II jijjjjjj WE WILL OPEN FRIDAY, APR5L 1 BE A FIRST NIGHTER AND PLAN TO ATTEND OUR. GALA OPENING! FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY, APRIL 1 - 5 n 8nw*RT WAYNE-GRANGER ..ERNIE KOVACS-FABIAN CINEMASCOPE COLOR by Of tUM NORTH TO PLUS SECOND BIG LAUGH HIT I ONE OF THE FUN HITS THAT MADE THEM FAMOUS 1 ybU'Rf NEVER r TOO YOUNG ' UNA LYNN-NINAFOCH WE SAID AVE (greeting) to our amlgo (friend, Sp.)atfhe stoa (portico) of the camp, and paid him the ora (money of account), we got into the umiak (boat, Eskimo) and when I took the paddle (oar) we would gee (cause to turn right) and haw (cause to torn left), we pulled into a ria (narrow inlet) on the allee (sheltered side) and Father warned me not to be prolit (verbose) or I would frighten the fish. So I got aphasia (loss of speech) and watched the aves (Mrds as a class). There were laws (gulls), an erne (sea eagle) an oo (Hawaiian bird) and herons (wading birds) preening (dressing feathers). - o - IN SAL (SALT) WATER we can flsh sans (without, Fr.) license without fear of americe (fine for punishment) and without need of eloln (conceal) the fish. We didn't catch any grike (young salmon) of sisi (porkfish) but we netted cephalopod (squid), cero (mackerel- like), conger (eel), dace (carp-like) and awa (mllkfish). We saw an heptad (group of seven) cetaceans (porpoise). .It was such an oner (extraordinary thing) that I opened my os (mouth) and sang ela (Guido's highest note). - o- I PLAN TO TAKE THESE flsh to our domicile (home) and cook them euge (well done). Of course, they will have to be served with alec (fish sauce) which is well-known to Crossworders. I don't know how to make it but it may be a combination of anet (the dill) moly (garlic), kava (Australian pepper) and cos (lettuce). For ates (the sweetsop) we'll have me! (honey) which has fust been taken out of the cere (wax). - o - IN THE MAIL CAME THE mirabile dictu (wonderful to relate) news that I am a great tante (aunt) to Thomas Christopher Zender who must be a rara avis (extraordinary person) to his parents, Tom and Pam at Cleveland, Ohio. And the redactor (the editor) and liis wife are aval (pertaining to grandparents) for the first time. Well carpe diem (enjoy today) for tempus fugit (time flies) and they soon grow up. In plain non-crossword language - congratulations to everybody concerned. I'll bet the new baby is a darling! - o WE HAD AN ALGONA WEEKEND when wo went up to Clearwater to see the Ted Larsons. Naturally, Ted and Father went fishing and Nell and I went gadding. We saw Kathryn Gilmore at Redlngton Beach (Harold was at the ball game) and Sylvia and Virg Smith who have an apartment in the same building. We had a good visit and Mrs. Gilmore had some slide pictures of other Algonans - the Butch Clements, Fred Kent, Sr., and the Floyd Saunders. Pauline Saunders is out of the hospital now after several months following a very nasty break in her leg and can now get about with the aid of a walker. The Saunders are permanent residents of Lake Wales (I think it is). We drove over to St. Pete to see the Ed Wolcotts and the Swede Andersons but they weren't home. When we got home we learned that Estel and Selma Rentz of Crystal River had been here but we missed them. - o- DUR1NG THE WEEK OF March 20 through March 26, people having birthdays include Walt Hagen, Sidney Johnson, David Shumway, Kristin Hoeckel, Warren Morris, Audrey Duncan, Jo Ellen Pittman, Harold Sundet, Howard Miller, William Miller, Russ Buchanan, Jane Cole, Leona Macumber, Bob Watson, Everett Anderson, Fred Kent, ST., David Hutchins, Marcia Mowers, Bill Nugent, Paul McBride, Jr., Mace Hershberger, Denny Waller, Connie Wycoff, Dean Taylor, Cathy Chrischilles, Burton Harmes, Bless Rusk, Roger Johnson, Timothy Shea, David Agena, Tim Claude, Irene Spurgeon and Lament Wellendorf.
