AS THE WORLD YAWNS By STAFF WRITERS I. S. Martens Found Dead; Funeral Set for Thursday 73 Years of Togetherness. WOULD YOU BELIEVE 73 years of togetherness? Mr. and Mrs. S. L. McClintock of Spirit Lake observed this milestone last November. He reached the age of 94 last July, and she turned 90 in May. Mrs. McClintock says she doesn't get out of the house much during the winter months, but "Dad goes uptown nearly every day". He is a retired railroader. Residents of Spirit Lake since 1928, their daughter, lone, is Dickinson County Recorder. Mrs. McClintock says they have some aches and pains, "But nothing to complain about," Is 73 years of marriage an Iovra record? We'd like to know! * * * IF YOU'RE SCRATCHING your head .for rr.asons the city is dumping truckloads of snow in the library square, it'll be used for making sculptures for the Winter Sports Festival. * * * CLAIR HOUGE, Dan Nelson and Miku Day last Thursday appeared on Fort Dodge TV for 15 minutes to plug th« Sports Festival. Mankato and Sioux City TV also have offered free time. * * * BUSINESS BEE-HUZZING is swiftly fading in most small Iowa towns, but we're constantly eyeing the busy activity in Armstrong's business district. It's dubious there is a community in the Hawkeye State (or anywhere) that wouldn't welcome Arts-way Manufacturing to its city limits. * * * HATS OFF TO the Red Owl Food Stores, Inc. for donating 17,700 pounds of baby food for the earthquake-stricken survivors in Managura, Nicaragua. The shipment was loaded on a Red Cross ship in Miami. This food chain is represented in Estherville by Harold's Red Owl. * * * COMEDIAN BILL COSBY recommends that people talk to themselves out loud. Californians have been known for open- mind thinking. Shucks, we've been taught that if you talk to yourself out loud in this part country you're apt to get locked up— after the straight jacket is strapped on. * * * WE WOULD BE REMISS if we didn't extend an earned salute to the city's snow-removal crew. The last white blast was cleaned up in the downtown area in record time, and numerous businessmen have expressed their gratification. True, the new equipment has been beneficial — but it also takes manpower with the knowhow. * * * THERE'S MUCH SPECULATION as to the reasons President Nixon has been avoiding the press and lawmakers since his re-election. One sage is wondering if he'll show up for his inaugural address. We believe the the President has a concrete purpose for his silence, and the people will be given a logical explanation at the proper time. Americans have a tendency to talk too much, anyway, for the good of our national security. * * * ROBERT PRATT is a name to remember in entertainment. He's a young man who is working quite regularly in popular TV network shows. One of us knew of Bob when he was trodding to school in Algona. His father worked in a newspaper advertising department there. Robert Pratt, his birth name as well as on the stage, was always a determined young man who knew where he was headed. Upon graduation from high school, he worked long hours during the summers on highway construction crews to assure his advanced education. After receiving a drama degree in Cedar Falls, he treked to Hollywood. There he learned he had to prove himself as an actor, and work was not plentiful until patience and perseverance won out. The well- known actor, Robert Young (Marcus Welby gave Pratt the boost he needed, we're told. He has appeared in Mod Squad. Marcus Welby, M.D., The Bold Ones and just last week in Gunsmoke. His earlier performances were not exceptional, but as a young outlaw in Gunsmoke he appears to be a polished dramatic actor. Incidentally Pratt was one school year behind Randy and Jean Shierk, both now residing in Estherville. THE NEW SIGHT on various area farms are stacks of corn stalks, and we're told the stalks are used for bedding or mixed with molasses and fed to livestock. * * * A PROOF READER'S GOOF in San Antonio (Texas) Light — "And the 100 companies exhibiting their warts spent another $900 per day." * * * MIA, ONLY 8, has written a poem. She is the skiing wizzard daughter of Jerry and Barb Stockdale, Estherville. My dog is white. My dad's a knight. He rides a horse Around a course. Then he comes home, And that's my poem. * * * PHOOEY TO HOROSCOPES ! One of us had this prediction one day last week. "Not only is new romance a likelihood, but the reappearance of someone who was a great influence in your past could bring back heartwarming memories" This bewildered gent said he stayed up until midnight on the certain day, but an 'old flame' didn't even send a post card. * * * ATTACKS HAVE BEEN made from all corners concerning the poor mail service in this country. Rightfully so. However, Jim Matre and Company in Estherville don't deserve to come under this complaint barrage. We have found this P.O. to be extremely conscientious and cooperative. They can't dispatch the mail until it arrives, you know. The hangup is beyond our Emmet boundaries! * * * FUEL SHORTAGE is critical in Vinton, and the Chamber of Commerce there has announced these business changes to conserve energy: stores be closed Thursday nights for next two weeks, store window lights and signs be turned off and only one- half of store lights be used during opening hours. A couple of several suggestions for residential areas to save energy include 'hold up on the ironing' and 'do not use your electric blanket'! * * * WHEN A FARMER (or anybody) buys a car, the breakdown of the costs appears on a window sticker. So, as a story is told, when a car dealer wanted to buy a cow, the farmer priced it to him this way: Basic cow $200 Two-tone exterior 45 Extra stomach 75 Product storage compartment 60 Dispensing device, 4 spigots at $10 each ... 40 Genuine cowhide upholstery 125 Dual horns 15 Automatic fly swatter 35 Total Price $595 * * * THE LATE DICK PHILLIPS, award-winning motion picture exhibitor for the Iowa-based Central States Theatre Corp. in Des Moines, was a friend of Dailv News' Rich Myers and Fred Williams. Dick was a talented banquet, speaker and taught speech at the University of Wisconsin prior to entering the theatre- management field. He and TV Host Johnny Carson teamed up for a comedy and magic act years ago in Iowa and Nebraska when Carson was still in high school. They performed at church, school and Chamber of Commerce socials. "It was a terrible act, as I think back," Phillips recalled one day when he was the theatre manager in Algona. "But my prediction was a lot worse. I said Johnny Carson would never make it in big- time show biz." * * * AND THEN THERE'S the airline hostess who said: "I knew he was one of those parachuting highjackers the minute he asked for coffee and a sandwich — TO GO!" Irving Scobey Martens, 75, rural Estherville, was found dead at his home by a neighbor. The time of death has been placed at Jan. 13 or 14, 1973, of natural causes. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at Fuhrman Funeral Home, Estherville. Burial will be made in Superior Cemetery. Mr. Martens was born Oct. 18, 1898, at Blue Island, 111., to Claus and Gladys Martens. He came as a youngster with his family to the Estherville area and attended Estherville schools and high school with further education at Omaha Business School, Omaha. He was married May 27, 1931, to Gertrude Richards in a wedding at the Little Brown Church of Nashua. They farmed all their married life in the area northwest of Estherville. He was a long-time member of the Methodist Church of Estherville. Survivors include one son, Donald Martens of Estherville; one daughter, Mrs. Don (Vir- Black Student Workshop Set At Iowa Lakes Dr. Henry H.

Kent Feeds Promotes Four Four area men at the' Kent Feeds plant in Estherville have been promoted to new positions according to an announcement by R. H. Severson, vice president of plant operations of the Muscatine based feed manufacturing firm. John B.

Brakes Grab, Car Overturns About $150 damage to a car in an accident at 7:10 a.m. today, reported by Emmet County sheriff's officers. Kenneth Jensen of Ringsted was driving west out of Ringsted on a county blacktop, N.-60, when he came to a dead end and put on the brakes.

Fenton Man Charged in City Mishap A three-car accident Monday morning resulted in a rural Fenton man being charged by Estherville police with falling to yield the right of way. The mishap occurred at the intersection of Central Ave. and 18th St. about 11:59. According to police, Michael David Berkland, driving a 1968 Plymouth, was going south on North 18th St, stopped for a stop sign and proceeded across Central Ave. Paul Kroenke of Estherville, driving his 1966 Pontiac east on Central, was on the inside lane when he saw the Berkland car coming toward him. Kroenke tried to change to the outside lane and in doing so hit his brakes and the rear end of his car slid into the Berkland car. The force of the impact sent the Kroenke car into a parked unattended car owned by Kathryn Marie Howard of rural Estherville. The Howard car, a 1973 Ford, was parked at a stop sign facing north on South 18th St. Berkland was charged by police with failing to yield the right of way.

A natural childbirth is your own decision By Abigail Van Buren «> l?/J * ClliCIM Tritmt-N. T. N'lWl *m«., I IK. DEAR ABBY: I am pregnant for the first time and a neighbor of mine is trying to talk me into having my baby the "natural" way. She said she took this course at the "Y" in her six'h month, and learned some breathing exercises and muscle control, and had her baby without taking even an aspirin. She said there was some pain, but not nearly as bad as she thought it would be. Also, her husband took the course, too, and he stayed with her during the labor and delivery, which made it a shared experience. I am undecided as to whether to have my baby the natural way or not. My husband says I'm crazy to suffer any pain at all if I can avoid it, and I'm inclined to agree with him. On the other hand, if your husband is right there and sees what you have to go thru, it might make him appreciate you more. Please be honest. My doctor says it's up to me. DEBBIE DEAR DEBBIE: It is up to you to decide whether you want to grin and bear it, or take an anesthetic. [The proponents of the "grin and bear it" method swear by it.] As I see it, childbirth will be a truly "shared experience" only when a couple has twins—the wife giving birth to one and her husband giving birth to the other. DEAR ABBY: All my life I have been worried about what other people think, but now that I've reached middle age, I have decided not to be bothered by these bugaboos, and I must say it's a great feeling. I recently married for the third time. It all happened very fast, but I'm sure this time I've found the right man. Instead of sending the conventional formal marriage announcements, we had our marriage license photographed and printed, and we sent copies to our friends to let them know we are married. We certainly enjoyed the different reactions. Some people thought we had sent them our original license, and even mailed it back to us. Others thought we just wanted to prove we weren't "shacking up" [which isn't a bad idea nowadays—to prove it, I mean]. One man thought someone was trying to force HIM into marriage and it gave him a good scare. A few thought it was in "poor taste," but most of our friends said they always suspected I was nuts, and I finally confirmed it. What do you think? LOIS IN SONOMA DEAR LOIS: It's different. ' r ..ZZ ^i''^-, '. DEAR ABBY: You 'would be Anng a lot ot bard pi hearing people a tremendous service if you would explain" the following in your column: The hard of hearing wear' hearing aids to amplify the sound, so when people discover that one is wearing a hearing aid, why do they start to SHOUT? Shouting into a hearing aid amplifies the sound to such a penetrating pitch it makes the wearer extremely nervous, and drives him up a wall. Thank you. WEARS ONE DEAR WEARS: Here 's your letter, and I hope it penetrates. DEAR ABBY: This is my first job and I am ready to climb the walls. I am in a one-girl office with 18 men including my boss. Everything I do or wear causes comments from the men. If I wear a colorful print, someone says, "Where's the party?" If I wear black, they say, "Where's the funeral?" If I wear a short skirt, I hear, "Wow, look at those gams!" If I wear pants, someone says, "Hi, Sam!" The money is good and I have to work, but I get so nervous from all the remarks around here, I 'm a wreck. Can you help me? SENSITIVE DEAR SENSITIVE: Learn to tune 'em out, or develop a thicker skin. Chances are, they're just being friendly. WED. THRU SAT. JAN. 17-20 ADULTS: II.2S/CHILD.: IT'S A BIO TOP OF ENTERTAINMENT! GRAND THE A TEH ES THER VIL L E CONT. FROM 7 F.M. SAT.
