Algono, (la.) Upper Pet Molnet Tuetday, April 19, 1966 fun - we hope I don smith WE'LL bet you didn't know this - and we'll also bet you couldn't care less 1 The cheetah has blunt claws that can't be drawn far back into its paws like the sharp claws of other members of the cat family. It can also be tamed and is used in some areas for hunting other wild game. The next time you meet one, you'll know it can't claw you to death, anyway, but better look out for those teeth they're sharp I THERE was no Lions Club meeting scheduled here April 5, two days after the organization held its annual radio day. However, six members, Warren Nelson, Harry Greenberg, Dr. R. K. Richardson, Craig Smith, Bill Studer and Ted Chrischilles wound up at the Algona Hotel and personnel there had forgotten there was no meeting slated, so had the dining room all ready. A mock meeting was held, several committees appointed and some resolutions passed, most important of which was a plan which would move the city dump site to the Oak street ravine from its present location. Of course, the whole thing was in A news release from the Secret Service recently, datelined' Washington, D. C., would indicate a larger number of citizens are attempting to set up their own poverty relief program. There's been a tremendous increase in counterfeiting - and the blame is placed not only on the persons who try it, but also on improved technology. In the past seven months, agents have glommed $4.5 nrUlion in bogus dough and arrests were up 36.1 percent over the same period a year earlier. During the 1965 fiscal year, 723 persons were arrested, 36 moneymaking plants seized and $2.5 million in bad money taken into custody. It seems a fellow can't even help himself out of the poverty rut. If you need help the government wants to step in - and when you try to help yourself - the Feds try to halt your plans. Things are tough all over I BESIDES playing the game constantly, . the main difference between Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and the rest of the touring professionals and Mr. Average Golfer seems to be this Mr. Average plays each round hoping for that one great shot that will get him out on the course again, while the pros play each round hoping they don't get that .one poor shot that could beat them out of several thousand dollars. WE got a big bang out of Meredith Willson's reply to the 70 college professors who wrote to President Johnson saying they felt Willson was not qualified; to serve on the National CounciCof Humanities. Being somewhat a Willson fan, we can't feature anyone being more qualified. He apologized for making money in his profession, stating that "MJsic Man" brought in $15 million and "Unsinkable Molly Brown" grossed another $10 million. It would appear that all of the so-called "nuts" at some of our colleges and universities aren't attending classes -they're teaching them 1 MR. and Mrs. Don Smith, Sr. and 10 offspring (their two sons and their families) were enjoying, a pleasant breakfast Easter morning at their home when a reflection of flames from a living room window prompted quick action by their older son, Craig. He dashed to the living room from the dining area, grabbed a lampshade that was emitting smoke smelling unlike the bacon just eaten - and flaming brilliantly, and carried it out the front door to the sidewalk where the shade burned to an ember. A candle burning a few feet from the lamp apparently spit flaming wax, starting the fire. Only loss, fortunately, was the shade. ISN'T it about time the State Legislature takes some real action on such things as youngsters driving tractors and people destroying old freezers and refrigerators. Instead of working (?) on all sorts of seemingly-unimportant bills and other items, why not make the age limit for driving tractors (and all other vehicles) the same as it is for cars and .trucks- and while they are at it, pass something that will impose a stiff fine on anyone with a freezer or refrigerator standing around where small children can climb inside and suffocate. How many have to get killed before someone comes to life? - ?SHUCKS, President Johnson's efforts to save money at the White House by turning off the lights seems to have gone for nothing. The light bill since the president's decision has been running about what it was earlier. However, maybe his plan had something to do with Us daughters catching a couple of fiancees. The lights turned low might have turned the trick 1 IF you can possibly make it travel to Des Moines for the annual Drake Relays April 2930. You won't be sorry, especially if you're a real track and field buff and want to see the best in the nation in action. The field expected to compete this year is excellent, perhaps as fine as any in the long history of the Relays. FRANCE might not get along with NATO, but cannot be questioned on some of its other actions. Border police in that European country were told recently to refuse admission to moneyless tourists who present an untidy appearance (referring mostly to beatniks). A good move by the U. S. would be to have the inner guard do something about the ones already within the borders I City Visitor: "Is the water here on the farm healthy ?" Farmer: "Of course. We use only well water."
