AIN STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHIUES "Twice Honored by State Awards" THE DAUGHTER of a former Algona girl arrived three days after the New Year started but still was the first baby born to Humboldt county parents and won a number of prizes in the annual first baby contest there . . she is Janet Renc.e Hauck, daughter of Mr and Mrs Gordon Hauck, who farm north of Humbolut. iMrs Hauck is the former Beverly Hovey, daugn- ter of Mr and Mrs Lionel Hovey of Algona. Thc baby was born Jan. 3 at i'ort Dodge but still was the first Humboldt county baby of '65. „„ :'# * ONE OF THE REALLY fine athletes in this part of the state is West Bend's George Bargman, three-time AH-Cornbelt Conference football and .basketball star ... he recently reached another high point of his career when he passed the 1,000- point mark in basketball in leading the Bulldogs to their 8th straight victory. George is averaging 16.5 points pi-r game and leads the team in assists. He's also a fine pitcher in baseball and was i\n All-Northwest Iowa football player last tall. TIME Magazine had an interesting article on the famed Macy's of New York in a recent issue . . . some tidbits of in- lormation included were that goods sell fastest on f.he ends of counters or at stands in the middle of aisles, and fastest of all on the main floor . . . the average purchase in the nation's department stores has risen during the past decade from $5.02 to $6.12 . . . the store has a private police force large enough to protect a city the size of Des Moines, captained by an ex- FBI agent who presides over an array of secret photo-electric alarms and six Doberman plnschers, which emerge from their rooftop kennels to patrol the floors after dark . . . computers will soon take the guesswork out of merchandising for the store, providing daily reports on which colors, sizes and styles are selling fast — and which aren't. Eventually, the machines will be able to telj Macy executives within four days after a piece of merchandise goes on sale, what its final sales will be within 80 per cent accuracy.
