in my VEINS" THURSDAY, NOV. 17, 1»j^ AteoNA (Wa) AEVANgfajj By MARIAN INMAN - . Agribusiness is Your Btisiflie&s" is the theme for the national 1966 Farm - City Week to be observed November 18-24 in thousands of communities throughout the. nation. . , J h l* * nemt »«99e«t« that tho production and processing of food, tho preservation of soil and water and air resource* and the maintenance of a prosperous agriculture is the eon- corn of both urban and rural people, Among the activities undertaken during Farm-City Week are the following: tours of farms by businessmen; tours of cities and factories by rural residents; banquets honoring farmers, housewives and rural youth; school assembly programs regarding life on a farm; one-day interchange between farm and city people; and special features and programs in the press and on radio and television highlighting interdependence of farm and city. A national Farm-City Week committee helps coordinate State and local observances. This year it is headed by Charles E. Hughes, manager of Agricultural Relations Armour and company, Chicago. Commenting on this year's theme, Hughes said that it "points up the growing need for young people to enter the agribusiness field, which now accounts for some 24 per cent of the nation's employment, yet is failing to attract sufficient newcomers to man its responsibilities adequately." Tonight is the eve before election and each candidate and each political party are getting in their last digs of the campaign. Wonder what we'll be thinking this time tomorrow. Hopei ; you vote thoughtfully and hope you do not compromise too much. There is something strange about a compromise which is really but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of re r taiining another, for too often it results in the loss of both. I remember reading that from the beginning of our history our country has been afflicted with compromise. It is by compromise that human rights have been abandoned. We need more everlasting principles than compromise. Strange 'but true, too much compromise is like dropping, a stitch, once dropped the whole piece ravels easily. Voting is the least arduous of a citizen's duties. The hard duty is making up our minds how and whom to vote for. To be sure we have not compromised ourselves. My birthday this year has been very special. Starting with cards and remembrances several days before the exact day and lingering on as today I received two more cards with precious letters enclosed. My daughter Mary Fran and family sent me the most beautiful red rose arrangement done by our Algona florists, the frangrance of roses still wafting about my house. The visits via the telephone with my daughters, the lovely gifts from sons, daughters and friends plus two cakes is really more than one person deserves, but I've loved . every minute of it. One of the cakes baked by my friend Adella Ulses held 16 candles and now you know my age! I am looking forward to the Meredith Willson Musical Spectacular at KRINT Theatre in Des Moines on November 14, • which will,launch the Nationwide Christmas Seal Campaign. The Iowa Tuberculosis and Health Association executive committee meets all day November 14, the gala opening and reception for Meredith Willson that evening followed the next day by the semi-annual board meeting. While I am in Des Moines I will be the guest as a Conner state board member of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation at their annual banquet on Tuesday evening, November 15. I have received so many unexpected letters of late, letters that have given pleasure and satisfaction and I am reminded of the delightful story about unexpected letters in a i:i recent 'Reader's Digest.' Quote: When my husband announced at breakfast that he had a holiday and we were going fishing, I said it was impossible, there was a basket of pears I had to put up, the ironing to do, and my sister was coming for a visit. But my protests were in vain, and a-fishing wo went, leaving a note for my sister in case she arrived before we returned. You can imagine my surprise when we got back about 8 p!m. and found 2.0 pints of pickled pears on the kitchen table, the ironing done and the house spotless. On the back of the note I had written my sister was the following: Kind Lady: Hungry and broke, I stopped here for a handout. . No,one answered the door, so I walked in. Tho note to your sister assured my safety-for the day. I cooked a good breakfast, put up the pears, ironed the clothes, vacuumed tho floors, polished the furniture. In return for my work, I am taking the picnic Hunch you forgot; I think it will last me to my destination, where i hope to find employment. An Ex-Soldier. P. S. Your husband is out of razor blades. Your piano needs tuning. The Fuller Brush guy called. I fixed your oven door and put your rings under the pin cushion. For gosh sakes, don't leave them out, not all people are honest." Maybe we should lock our doors, not all people are honest. Benjamin Franklin once said, "Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other, and scarcely in that; f ists. Waco was a real treat tt orm. One critic called it "tightr lipped and tightly-edited" and 1 guess that about tells the story. Back in the west,, when meti were men and women were Jan,e Eiussell, .a, man named Waco, fresh from prison is called to the town of Bmhona to clean up his own element and thereby receive amnesty as a reward. That man is Howard Keel, abandoning his usual role as a baritone and Sunday guests of the Gale Stockweils were their daughter, the Henry Nelsons, Minneapolis, Joe Collier, former AlfOna high school teacher, is reluffiring to classes this week at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, after recent surgery. Married at Wesley • -.1 •.•:',' •> ' ETHEL MAE Henry, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dean Henry and Alvin R. Meyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jake Meyer were married Oct. 25 at the First Methodist church, Wesley. Rev. Frank L. Considine officiated at the double ring ceremony. The bride was escorted by Leonard Albright. • : ' Matron of honor was Mrs. Dennis Fritz. Best man was Edgar Meyer, brother of the groom. Ushers were Lloyd Bartelt, Titonka and Dennis Fritz, Wesley. Candlelighters were Lloyd Bartelt and Dennis Fritz. Soloist was Tony Angus, Algona, accompanied by Mrs. George Ostercamp, Britt. A reception was held -in the church basement following' the ceremony. Sharon Henry, sister of the bride, had the guest book, loberta Henry, sister of the wide served punch. Mrs. Wil iam Meyer, aunt of the groom poured coffee. Mrs. Arthur Meyer, cousin of the groom, cut the cake. Hostesses were Mrs. Char les Nygaard, Mrs. George Oster camj? Waitress was Mrs. Cham Seen at the ALGCMSfA By T. H. C. "How To Steal a Million" waii a long time coming to the loca theatre. After I had Chased i around Minneapolis for two « three months,.! suspected that i was a picture I'd enjoy and wasn't disappointed. I'm an admirer of both Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole ara they both gave a good aocouni of themselves in, a film that was sumptuously mounted, well reeled and well played. It wais a relief for me — a somewhat slow witted and confused iridi;. vidual who is easily misled byT many of the so-called mysteries' of the Janes Bond variety. turning in a stellar performance as a two-fisted, sure-shot sheriff who faces unbelievable odds to accomplish the mission. The acting is simply atrocious especially that of Jane Russell and Wendell Cory but who cares about acting when the action is fast and furious and the bullets are flying like the driven snow. Yes, Waco, is for veteran western film addicts like myself and boy, how we do enjoy them. I won't take the fine and space to attempt to review "My Fair Lady", which so many of my readers have seen and en- oyed. In my book it rates with Gone With the Wind" as the most enioyable motion picture ver made. I saw three entertaining films n Minneapolis last week — Morgan", an off-beat story of a certifiably insane ecentric :razy, psychotic young man who has aberrations about animals and things that surround his very day life, a rather difficult picture to follow but thought moving and exceedingly well done. Alfie, at the Downtown World, s another off-beat English picture, in the tradition of Tom Jones, featuring Michael Cains and a fine cast and concerned largely with the hero's amorous pursuits. The Swingers, with Ann-Margaret, concerns itself largely with revealing this young lady's physical endownments, of which she has an abundance. Since she has little acting ability and less singing technique-, we'll settle quite cheerfully for the "physical" and does that answer your question, dear classmates? How Tto Steal a Million haj ( ( moments of mystery but it driv- J >ers. Mesdames Dennis Fritz and Edgar Meyer opened gifts. Out of town guests came from Burt, Titonka, LuVerne, Buffalo Center, Ft. Dodge, Algona, Lakota and Britt. The couple plans a honeymoon to parts of Missouri and Kansas. The bride was a waitress at the Algona Hotel and the groom farms north of Sexton. BAKING DEMONSTRATION Wednesday, Nov. 9, the Kossuth County School Food Service Assoc. met in the high school annex. Mr. Frank Wells and Mr. De Wolfe from General Mills, Inc., Minneapolis and St. Paul, gave a 3-hour demonstration on bakery products including cakes, cookies, plain and fancy shells. es a straight .arid- , path with a surprise ending and plenty, of suspense along thie way. You can always count on Audrey Hepburn, a wide-eyed cunning little trick with loads, but not too much, sex appeal and who looks as charming and innocent in a nightie as a formal gown. Peter O'Toole, famed for his stellar performance in Law- rente of Arabia and Beckett, romps along easily in a role that requires but little dramatic talent. He seems thoroughly to enjoy his present role.
