Calling Car 55-7 / March §1, 1966 Algeno (la.) Upper De* Mofnw-j other denominations. The earlier notes were usually in black and white. Multi-color notes are usually from the 1850 - 1863 period. Interesting collections can be formed though full sheet's are by no means common, except for a few banks. Due to the size, scrapbook mounting is the most practical and they make nice frames for the wall as well. Another old time (although not quite as old as the others) photo was turned up by this newspaper last week. Without a doubt, there are many persons in the area, for one reason or another, who will recognize the two gentlemen shown. We would first like to point out that not only women's fashions change through the years for the neckties worn by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, standing, and his deputy Don Wood, were the latest thing in January, 1949, when the picture was snapped. The typewriter being used by Deputy Wood was later traded for a more up-to-date machine, and the present office in the new courthouse is certainly nicer appearing than this office in the old courthouse. Ralph had just been sworn in as sheriff for the first time after serving as deputy for several years under Art Cogley. Sheriff Lindhorst and Deputy Wood have served in the sheriffs office since that time - and a little more than a year ago, a second deputy, Larry Hudson, was added to the staff. It is always interesting to note the results of the annual stamp derby conducted by Linn's Stamp News. This year, some 29,000 readers participated in the three catagories: best design, the least necessary for commemoration and the worst design. Rating is not an easy proposition when some stamps are original in design and others picture some previous work. There is also the question of color, which may adversely effect an otherwise desirable design. I think it would be more nearly correct to say that what the .voters are selecting is the best stamp, regardless of whether or not original art is involved. The John Singleton Copley famous painting issue featuring his six year old daughter was an easy winner with 6,142 votes. The commemorative tribute to Adlai Stevenson ranked second with 3,555. Every issue received some support. The winning Copley also polled 269 votes as the worst design and the Stevenson had 264 in that category, The Salvation Army received the black blot award with 5,595 votes . It is too bad that such a worthy organization couldn't have had a better issue. Actually, I didn't find the red, white and blue hori- , zontal divisions that unattractive and the message-purpose of the stamp was quite clear, However, certainly there wasn't much inspiration in this production, Second in (he worst category was the traffic safety, and third, which in my opinion was the low point of the year, was the dreadful Dante creation, The Christmas, Magna carta, St. Augustine and Cancer designs all received a substantial number of boos, Perhaps the greatest amount ot disagreement was on the St. Augustine with 2,382 votes for the worst and 1,471 votes for the best, - o- Opinion certainly varies as to what events or personalities are worthy of commemoration since, of course, the number of issues in a year must be limited. As a history teacher, I would consider the 7QOth anniversary of the Magna Carta worthy of note as an early limitation on the theory of absolute rule but it placed fourth in the unnecessary category with 2,248 votes. Dante won the dubious victory in this class over the Sokol by 5,344 to 4,866. Literature instructors and students might not care for that. Just under 27,000 votes were recorded here, so some apparently thought that all were worthy of note. I will have to confess that I included Dante in my vote here and probably some English teacher somewhere put a sharp check next to the Magna Carta. - o - The first commemorative of 1966 is a pleasing reminder of the migratory bird treaty with Canada. This event is not particularly earth shaking, but it is a tribute to our two countries that our societies are sufficiently civilized to give attention to and cooperate on such matters. Present notice indicates that the 5 cent souvenir sheet in May for the 6th International Philatelic Exhibition will not be on general sale at the post offices, It will have to be ordered from the Agency Sales Service in Washington, At present, the re is a minimum 50 cent service charge which makes small orders rather expensive, but this likely will be changed, Our last special sheet was for the 5th exhibit and had a face value of 11 cents, The sheet currently sells for 55 to 65 cents. It, too, was available only from the agency and coUectors did not buy heavily, so the price advanced soon after it was withdrawn from sale. The present rate, however, has been in effect for some time, Demand seems to be fairly steady as it is seldom offered at any discount and auction sales fully support current wholesale prices of 43 to 45 cents, » o- From a source in the East comes one of the old classic paper money sheets issued by private banks prior to 1863, This one is on the Vermont State Bank at Woodstock and is in the denominations "of .$!,'2; 3. 'None; of the notes! .have been filled- in or signed, but I would guess they would come from the 1840 period or earlier. Sheets with the $3 denomination are always popular since there is considerable demand for that denomination. These notes are unusual in that the value in numeral or spelled out appears many times, so no matter how the note is held, it is quite clearly stated. Three in one form or another appears no less than 23 times and the same holds true for the JOHN RUEB, 6 Mrs. Frank Rueb gave a dinner party last week Tuesday honoring the sixth birthday of her son, John. Guests were Scott Davis, John Hayes, Jim Reding, Bill Strohman, Kathleen Ballard, Janyne Bomgaars, Tracy Shaw and the honoree's sister, Jeanne.
