Clftar Pictures — Mori News - Biggest Circulation ESTABLISHED 1865 Entered as second class matter at the postofficc at Aleona. Iowa (50511). Nov. 1, 1932. under Act of Congress of March 3. 1B19 AlOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, MAY 19, 1966 22 Pages - 2 Sections VOL. 101 NO. 39 BY RUSS WALLER Perhaps you have noted the advertising message from Northwestern Bell with regard to obscene or annoying telephone calls of an anonymous nature, and what to do about them if they happen. As the company advises, the first thing to do is to hang up. But the company also has means, now, of tracing calls that continue to annoy or insult. There is a small device that can be locked into a phone where such calls are received, and the device is activated with each incoming call and instantly pinpoints the caller's number. From there on it is rapidly easy to backtrack on the caller and where the call came from. So - if you have something nasty to say, better not say it over the telephone more than once, anyway! * * * Incidentally, it isn't wise to send the same comments in the U. S. mail, either. We note where a Mason City man, in addition to paying his fine for overtime parking in the envelope provided, also put in a note of an obscene nature. This didn't go through the U. S. mail, but It still cost him $100 for disorderly conduct .... a meter maid road the message. * * * It used to be that county political conventions consisted of one of two approaches. If your party was in power, you pointed with pride; if it was out of power, you viewed with alarm. Now there are indications that county political conventions have to some degree at least forgotten the age-old partisanship and are taking an interest in improved government in general, without reference to a political party. This could be a most wholesome improvement, and could really . bring about more sensible, streamlined conduct of government on local levels. * * * Four, eight, twelve row planting at one time have been developments through recent years. . . . now comes a farmer who has figured out a way (reportedly in southern Minnesota) to plant 21 rows at a time .... might be all right, just so enough room is at least left'for making turns in the field .... we might be running out of room. * * *' Twenty years ago the graduating class from Algona high had 80 members, this year 104 .... an increase of approximately one a year .... there are 108 graduates at Garrigan high .... pictures of the local seniors will be found in this issue, sponsored by eight local manur facturing and business firms. * * * Casey Loss, as a member of the State Board of Regents, must have one of the most interesting jobs in the state. . .. overseeing state institutions. We note where the Regents recently had the problem of how to reduce the costs of a proposed 13-story men's dorm at State College of Iowa so that it came within the designated budget. The problem was solved by eliminating individual lavatories in the rooms .... and we guess it won't hurt the boys to walk a few steps down the corridors. * * * Francis Bunting, one of our better gardeners, has always felt that he could gauge weather so that in planting his vegetable garden it escaped late freezes , ... but not this year. His newly-planted tomato plants were nipped completely. We haven't heard from Earl Miller, another gardener, famous for his onions in particular. Stew McFadden, one of the best, ceased his vegetable* raising last year .... says the super market is so much easier! * * * Someone has said that the only person who listens to both sides of an argument is the woman next door. * * * Famous Last Line * Now, General Ky, what are you going to do next that we won't find out about until after you've done it ?
