6-Algane (la.) Upper fat Maine* Thursday, September 1, 1966 DURING THE WEEK OF August 28 through September 3, people having birthdays include Lorraine Phillips, David Pratt, Katie Gotten, Myrtle Morck, Marlyn Struecker, Nadine Stillman, Lawrence Heiderscheidt, Clara Harig, Neil Anderson, Gail Sindslar, Robert Hutchins, Jeffrey McGinnls, Laurie Nan Bilsborough, Virginia Klein, Gary Horton, Mjrlon Baker, Howard Beardsley, Lois Dau, David Martin, Gregg Winkel, Margaret Heiderscheidt, Nancy Allen, John Andreasen, Clyde Bronson, Michael John Zender, Jo Hardy, Larry Knoll, Carrie Durant, Bud Morck, Blanche Phillips, John Will, clay Mowers, Mary Elbert, Mirk Teeter, Nava Johnson, George Miller, Dale Yungeberg, Kent A FEMININE FASHION, RECENTLY introduced as a novelty, may very well turn out to be the most revolutionary innovation since Eve sewed animal skins to replace her fig leaves. It is the paper dress. A Brooklyn department store introduced paper dresses and sold 1,800 in two weeks. A Sunday newspaper supplement advertised several styles of the dress at $1.98 each and had to call it quits with several thousand unfilled orders. - o - THERE'S JUST NO TELLING what the trend will unfold. The sack dress may take on new meaning for the paper dresses are cheap and virtually worry free. Although the dress can be worn several times before putting it into the waste-basket, women will never again have to wear the same dress twice. We can all be literally paper dolls I - o - ALTHOUGH THE PAPER DRESS MAY revolutionize the fashion industry, I predict that this will not be the only facet of the woman's world that will be changed. Think of what it will do to our closets. Dresses will no longer have to be stored on hangers and racks but on rollers and in dispensers. Or possibly in loose-leaf binders. Instead of consigning a gown to the washing machine or the dry cleaners when it gets dirty we can just take a match to it. - o SEWING AND MENDING KITS will contain some new items- cellophane tape, staples, paper clips and erasers for making even major repairs in seconds. When the hemline fluctuates as it is bound to do, we can just tear along the dotted lines to get the desired dress length. - o - IF DRESSES ARE TO BE PUBLISHED instead of manufactured, seamstresses will be turned into editors overnight. Men will read as never before. Designers could obtain carbon copies of any creation in the world and the new creations could be judged on the basis of legibility and neatness of margins. - o - FT COULD BE SUCH A THING that paper dress manufacturing will get to be an auxiliary business of the newspapers in much the same way job printing is now. Our old stand by, the print dress, could take on a literal meaning and become the height of fashion. Women could not only read the fashion news, they could also wear it. After enough~dresses have been published we won't need to go to Grandma's attic to dig out an outfit for a costume party, we can just take an old-time issue from the newspaper morgue. - o - PAPER DRESSES COULD CREATE some activity in the world of law, too. Dresses, as well as books, could be banned in places like Boston with resulting court cases. And if Mabel Glutz should show up at a party wearing the very same edition of a dress that Lucy Jones is wearing they could sue each other for plagarism. - o - ABOUT THE ONLY HAZARD that can be foreseen in this new trend is the probability that fashion designers will push on to cardboard dresses. Fashion and technology being what they are, if s almost inevitable. If that happens, the whole thing will undoubtedly fold.

The decision to discontinue printing the $2 bill will be regretted by some tho admittedly a small percent of the general population. Currency collectors will no longer have additional series to look forward to. Contrary to a statement made in another Algona publication, the $2 has been regularly printed with the current series being 1963A with the Fowler signature. This series was started but a few months ago. Many consider this bill to be the most attractive of the lower denom/nations due to the very fine reverse engraving of Jefferson's home. Banks will confirm that the $2 bill was always a popular item at Christmas time as, indeed, was the silver dollar. Actually, I have often made it a point to carry this denomination and have found it convenient but the banks never paid them out except by specific request. - o - The red seal $2 bill is the current legal descendant of the original first Federal paper currency issue of 1863. The official title is Legal Tender Issue or United States Note as stated on the bill. It represents in effect a non interest bearing note of the United States Government. If the government runs a deficit (a not entirely unusual situation), the debit portion could be financed by bonds or by increasing the number of these notes. There are those who have favored the latter method in lieu of the bond- bank credit type of finance. The v only remaining denomination of the Legal Tender series is the $5 with the red seal, a very small 'percent of the total. For some 30 years, the total value of outstanding United States notes has been about 330 m illion dol- PUBLIC AUCTION 240 ACRES Saturday. Sept. 10.1966 1:30 P.M.

HAIL STORM They said this was beautiful to see. "The surest steps to happiness are the church steps". -60 TH- Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Lee of Bode observed their 60th wedding anniversary there on August 21. Early this month a storm in the Lake Mills area brought damaging hail as large as eggs and cut a path at times two to three miles wide. The hail stripped fields of corn of Its leaves as well as stripping soybean fields. lars or currently about 1% of the total money supply. It remains to be seen whether the government will reduce the total or print additional $5 notes to replace the $2 total. However, there will be a time lag before the bill entirely departs as no doubt existing stocks will be used rather than destroyed but this may be the last Christmas for crisp new Jeffersons under the tree. - o - Two other recent local press statements also bear comment. Many of the silver dollars now held by the Treasury were minted in Carson City during the last century. They have had a premium value to collectors for many years even prior to the end of the gold standard back in 1934. The current value interest has nothing to do with monetary-fiscal policy. The common date dollars have no particular interest to collectors at all. They are sought by speculators who hope that eventually the silver content will be worth more than the legal tender value, a fact that does not at this time exist. If the government were to suddenly announce that some packets of old currency, had been discovered, exactly the same situation except for the speculators in bullion would exist. The Treasury certainly has no fear relative to getting these silver dollars in the hands of the people. The problem is just how to go about doing exactly that. What the Treasury quite correctly doesn't want is to allow the dollars to get into the hands of a few dealers who would reap whatever collecting' profit would be involved. It is well to note that the market value of these Carson City dates would certainly drop sharply anyway with these new supplies. - o - The other comment concerns the statement that new stamps are issued merely for the benefit of stamp collectors. Certainly collectors have some influence and their purchases represent a profit to the government. However, the postage stamp has been a traditional device for national commemoration for over a century thruout the world. Many groups for various reasons seek this form of recognition and they aren't collectors. Indeed, collectors frequently deplore some of the events or individuals that are chosen for commemoration. A recent petition signed by thousands and started by students in Sioux City brought about a Serviceman Appreciation addition to an already contemplated stamp for the Saving Bond anniversary. It also brought about a first day of issue assignment for Sioux City. I will wager that less than 10% of those who signed the petition collect stamps. Stamps with any business-commsrcial theme have often been used for promotions by the first involved and, at times, additional printings of various issues have been made due to the popularity on the part of the general public or a portion thereof. The recent Polish Christain Millennium stamp is a case in point with an additional printing of at least 10 million. Stamp collectors do want special issues but so also does a surprisingly large percent of the general public. Portland Twp.
