Alqona Ho«uth County «r-ire- f --/-.-»--r-ai -ii T- — rTimiirntrnimmiiMifi«inniiiftT-rV---r f*t THURSDAY, KB, 11, IMS — ALOONA, IOWA- Wesley couple tell of t trip to Mexico cities A GIRL HAS brought suit against Playboy magazine because she was pictured, probably mostly in the raw, without perhaps her consent. She asks a million bucks, which is a lot of moolah for any picture. The Old Goat is a bit suspicious of this shenanigan. In the first place the girl knew just what she was doing when she was photographed. These were not sneak shots, and she knew what they were being taken for. And in the first place a girl who gets herself pictured that way has a reason that might not be as pure as she suggests. There is a suspicion she is bringing suit 'for the publicity more than the money. Well, maybe. THE OLD GOAT is getting • bit sick of Carol Channing's teeth and fancy baby talk. She's a good actress but that mugging all of the tint* is getting a bit too much. Tho Old Goat has an urge to whomp her once on the north side just to hear what she sou.nds like when she isn't acting. It might make a mule-skinner flinch. THE RACE is now on for the annual silliness of the awarding of the oscars in the movie dream world. The awards are to be made April 5. The Old Goat thinks April 1 would have been a better date. Anyway the actors and actresses are now honeying up to the voters and spending nipney to promote themselves with advertising in the screen trade magazines. The Old Goat is not a movie critic except that he knows what he likes and so far the winning pictures he has seen do not measure up. Too many of them are horror dramas with a lot of weeping and .wailing.. What the Old' Goatlike'r'is amusement—not being scared so he's afraid to go home in the j dark. So there! THE DOCTORS have come up with what they call the "Panty-girdle syndrome" which at least is an interesting title for whatever it means. Anyway it seems that when the girls put on these gimmicks something has to give and causes swelling elsewhere in the form deevine. The Old Goat suspects a lot of this monkey business is caused by dress designers who have the urge to put a siie umpteen into a siie minteen. The lard has to go someplace doesn't it? THESE CELEBRITIES who appear on What's My Line seem to give away their identity almost on purpose. The theory it seems is that they are so well known and so popular that the panel should guess them immediately. Some of them the Old Goat never heard of too. Anyway with Dotty Killgallon on the Old Goat is too busy snooting at her to'pay much attention to the celebrities if that's really what they are, THIS SPANKING busmen fails to get much sympathy from the Old Goat, In His day a kid who got spanking at school took another whipping when he got home if the folks found out about it. It was considered a disgrace to the family to have to bo disciplined and many a fellow hid his bruises rather thin tike an. other spanking, A ruler whacked across the palm was very education*!, and thert was an awful rumor in the old Central grade school here that in the southweit corner basement there was • room where there WM • rubber hoie kept, (The Old Goat will admit only to thit being a rvmorO However in those days it wif done moftly jn privite< but every kid knew eboyt it, and feme fink w*s sure to squeal to, the home folk*. 35 years ago — and today tery is being saved lot history and some valuable paintings, that were painted on the walls. Then we visited the ancient Pyramids of the Sun and Moon and the Temple of Zuetzalcoatl. This city of pyramids was started about 200 known., race. B.

Aad it does seem a bit sticky to use kids and them look ridiculous, Seneca — Pictured are Mr. a farm north of Bancroft. and Mrs. Merle Culbertson as they appeared on their wedding day — and as they prepare to observe their 35th wedding. Their children are sponsoring an open house next Sunday, from 2 to 5 at St. Paul's Lutheran church at Ringsted. They have 12 children: Shirley, Mrs. Herb Haagenson, Leland; Francis, Titonka; Laure, Mrs, John Genrich, Estherville; Kathleen, Mrs. Donald Quastad, Estherville; Sylvia, Mrs. Chet Tabor, Chicago; Sandra, Mrs. Darrel Walsh, Colorado Springs, Colo.; Garry, Estherville; Gordon, Ringsted; and Lyle, Danny, Emory and Connie at home. They have 21 grandchildren. The Culbertsons farmed in the Seneca area before moving to Ringsted 15 years ago where he is employed as a county maintainer. SHOWER IS GIVEN Mrs, Gene Priest, the former Dorothy Petersen, Fort Dodge, was given a pink and blue shower Thursday afternoon at the Free Methodist Parsonage Fellowship hall at Armstrong. A program was given after which Mrs. Friest opened gifts. Hostesses included seven women from the church. Guests included her mother, Mrs. Alfred Petersen, her sister, Mrs. Clarence (Alice) Cheever, and her mother- in-law, Mrs. Elmer Friest, Badger, Mrs. Harvey Larson, Swea City, and guests from Armstrong. SERVICES HitD Funeral services were held at the First Baptist church at Bancroft Monday afternoon for Ed- void Johnson, 62, Seneca farmer, who was found dead in his home by his brother, Albert, Thursday morning, when he returned home after driving the Sentral school bus. Mr. Johnson had recently been dismissed from the hospital at EstheryiUe. The Rev. R.. W. Nelson had charge of the service and burial was in the Maple Hill cemetery, Lakota.

Tell of trip to Mexican i tourist stops The George Lickteigs, who won the Behlen trip given by the Taylor Implement Co., returned Jan. 12, and wrote the following account of their experiences:? Wttlty — Mr and Mrs George Lickteig left Jan. 4th for fies Moines by car, then flew to Mexico City. Our jet was three hours late because of fog over Kansas City. Mexican boys dressed as the three Wise Men met our plane. .,'' As soon as we were through customs, and were leaving that room, Carlos, our Mexican guide, met us. He said he had asked everyone coming out if they were Mr and Mrs Lickteig until he found us. We were sure happy to see him as it was getting dark. He then drove us through the city to see the Christmas lights, as this was the same as our Christmas Eve. j The children set their shoes out and the presents are set beside them. The streets were beautifully decorated, lots of lights, more than we've ever seen in the States. They had outlines of animals, the wise men, and camels made out of glass tubing! similar to our electric light signs. These were very large and were placed on. the fronts of some of the larger buildings. The streets were packed with people Christmas shopping. They had brought their children down town to see Santa and one reindeer. Also big animals that looked like they could have been made of paper mache. Men were carrying huge bunches of balloons they were selling. These balloons were, all shapes and, sJz J es, and' were very'colorful!'" We then went to Hotel Reforma where we stayed. The hotel lobbies were very pretty with lots of green plants growing in them, also fresh gladiolus, roses and carnations. Most of the restaurants had flowers on the tables. The fruit was delicious, and they serve a lot of fruit for breakfast and for desserts. THE SECOND DAY we visited the shrine of Guadalupe. She is the patron saint of Mexico, and the people of Mexico are very devoted to her. Then we visited an old monastery built in the year 1539. This monastery had been buried in about eight feet of mud for 200 years by a big flood. It has been dug out now and the Indians in that area use the church. The rest of the monas- The third day our guide took us to Cuernavaca, which is a beautiful town with more flowers in bloom here. The temperature varies only 12 to 14 degrees all year long. A lot of wealthy people from Mexico City have lovely weekend homes here. The golf course was a beautiful spot, green grass, huge trees, and beautiful flowers. Poinsettias, roses and calla lillics were blooming. We then drove on to Taxco. This is a silver mining town. It is built on the side ot a mountain, and the homes and shops are very old. The streets are cobblestone and are so narrow that two cars cannot pass in ma ny places. Every shop has sil ver jewelry, table service, and such, for sale. NEXT WE DROVE down to Acapulco, which was very interesting. The farmers do all their work by hand. They plow their fields with oxen, plant, weed and cut everything by hand.' They carry the crops such as corn and wheat, tied in bundles, then tied on to the burros and lead them home. They have no cars, only a very, very few have a truck. The people walk everywhere. We arrived at Acapulco about 7:30. Our guide got a room at the De Monte hotel, very nice. We had a beautiful view of the bay and the city. Next day our guide took us by John Wayne's hotel, and many big and beautiful homes. We also went through many of the first class hotels. Each was prettier than the last. Each had a view of the bay or Pacific ocean. After a swim in the Pacific ocean we started the long hot trip back to Mexico City. It takes five and a half hours, and we drove over five ranges of mountains. On the fifth day we drove to Puebla, through more modern methods of farming. We saw three tractors and two wheeled carts, made from old cars. But everything was still done by hand. We did see some horses here both in the fields and being ridden. In Puebla we visited a pottery factory where everything was done by hand, and an onyx shop, where they make jewelry, book ends, ash trays, table tops all by hand. The onyx is very cheap, and they just charge for the la- 1)01* SUNDAY we went to the Folk- lofie Ballot. It is a two hour show or regional dances and songs of Mexico. It is very colorful and entertaining. These same dancers were to perform for the inaugural of President Johnson. We both enjoyed them so much we would like to sec them again. We then visited Xochimilco and the floating gardens. After lunch which is always between two and three in the afternoon, we went to the bull fights. They were exciting, but I felt sorry for the bulls and piccadors. One man got knocked off his horse three times and another one once. One bull charged so hard and fast that he hit the fence and broke his neck. These were the professional fighters that we saw. Monday we saw the oldest Cathedral of Mexico, it is in Mexico City. The National Palace where the government offices are occupies four large city blocks, contains 14 patios or courtyards. There are many paintings telling the history of Mexico, painted by Diego Rivera. We then visited the Castle of Chapultepec, where Maximilian and Charlotte lived during his French rule of Mexico of three years. Many of the rooms are as they were then. We drove through University City, it has all new modern, buildings with room for 40,000 students. They do not have dormi- tories now, but pita to build them later. Then back to the aif< port and h&ttie Jatt, 12. ITALIAN PROVINCIAL TV Th« TONINO •)'tgbl'!v«ulldlu.)
