don smi'th , (la.) Upfttr DM MoliM* Tuctday, April 26, school football star who is now a junior at Notre Dame, was in town around Easter, visiting his mother and other relatives in the area. The 24Mb. lineman on the Fighting Irish squad says the team should be very good this fall - possibly better than the two fine clubs of 1964-55, and that the school has. a real good crop of sophomores. When asked how he stacked up, size-wise, with the the rest of the Irish linemen, Paul said, "About average." Wow! HEADINGS on ads two consecutive days in the state's largest daily newspaper a week or so ago read like this"California Man Discovers Way To Hold False Teeth" and "Now You Can Throw Away Your Denture Adhesive." The Californian mentioned could look mighty silly to some people, standing there holding his false teeth, no matter what method he has discovered ! APRIL 30 is an important date for many tried and true fishermen in this area. That's when the Walleye and Northern Pike (Pickerel) become fair game for anglers under state law. The season is open from then until Feb. 15 next year, with all other fish and frogs in Iowa on continuous open season, year in and year out, except for rock sturgeon and muskellunge. Daily limit of Northerns is three and possession limit six, while daily take of Walleyes is five and possession 10. Except for bullfrogs, daily catch limit i£ four dozen and possession limit eight dozen. It's no wonder perch are so popular, the daily limit is 25, most of any of the true game variety. And man, they're real eating 1 -1- THERE are 16 Iowa-owned artificial lakes over 100 acres and 10 natural lakes in Iowa over 900 acres, plus many rivers and streams beckoning nimrods now that the real fishing season is about to start. ALL this investigation into and hullabaloo about the safety of autos by Congress is fine however, the one item that has not been discussed is the most important - the loose nut on the steering wheel. SOMEONE suggested on a TV show the other night that if Dean Martin designed furniture, it could very aptly be called "Drunken Phyfe." AS is normal when such things occur, not enough tribute was paid to an area man when he retired April 1. We're referring to Walt Steward, who served 42 years as town marshal at Burt and he ran a pretty tight ship, keeping things pretty well under control in that central Kossuth town. We've known Walt for some time - and not because of a run-in with the law, but because he occasionally visited the local police station and sheriff s office when this writer happened to be making a call. He never seemed to be at all "owly", and yet appeared to be the type of law officer that no one could run over. Walt also was on the fire department for 47 years, including the past several years as chief, % post he continued to hold after April 1 until a successor was named. Too many times, fellows of Walt's caliber go without anyone saying anything very nice about them. We want to go on record now by saying we're happy to be Waifs friend. And we hope he continues to visit our fair city once in a while, at least to say hello i You should be very proud of your life's work, Walt. AN excited cowpuncher rode up to the foreman on his sweaty horse and yelled, "Rustlers just ran off 70 head of our cattle." The foreman replied, "Did you recognize any of them?" To which the cowhand said, "No, all cattle look alike to me." PAUL Seller, ex-Garriganhigh PRACTICALLY everyone a* grees seat belts are perhaps the most important piece of safety equipment available in autos. But you have to use them in order to benefit - even if you're only going to the grocery store. Too many persons hop in the car and take off without fastening their belts. Accident investigators everywhere will tell you they have covered mishaps that indicated belts can be both good and bad. However, the good outweighs the bad. So wear them if you have them - and if you don't already have belts, get some! And use your head behind the wheel. - ?DID you ever notice - students that drive the fastest past a school ( and everywhere else) are the ones who take the longest getting through it ? - 1- EVER hear of Charles The Bald ? No, he doesn't live in this area - and never did. Actually, he may have had gleaming tresses, and was really Charles I, first of 10 kings of France named Charles. He lived from 823-877, and was followed later by other kings named Charles with these thrilling nicknames, The Fat, The Simple, The Fair and The Wise. The people must have liked the last two better than the rest! _ 9 _ KNOW how much you grow during a lifetime? During its period of growth (if you eat enough of that well-known bread), a child's head doubles in size, the arm becomes four times as long, the leg five times as long and the trunk three times as long.
