AS THE WORLD YAWNS By STAFF WRITERS Highway 9 Resembles Grandma's Quilt HIGHWAY NINE between Estherville and Spirit Lake is a dandy thoroughfare — if you drive a Model T or a buckboard pulled by a team of Mules. Nobody needs to be reminded that this heavily traveled stretch is an insult to motorists of this area who must use it daily. The Dickinson County strip, in particular, is so broken up it has nearly as many patches as grandma's quilt. Taxpayers' pleas in this section of the state have been ignored much too long, and we understand it'll be several years before engineered improvements will be made. Highway Nine West is far below modern safety standards and should be given IMMEDIATE serious consideration to meet today's traffic requirements. * * * WORD FROM DETROIT has it that the German-engineered Wankel Engine will make its automotive debut in this country in the 1974 Chevy Vega. A 185 h.p. Wankel will be used, about half the size of present engine and will have only 15 working parts. * * * IN AUSTRALIA names of drunk drivers are sent to the local newspaper, which prints them under this heading: 'He's Drunk and In Jail'. There's no second chance for a drunk driver in San Salvador—he's executed by a firing squad. And, according to a report, in Malaya not only is the drunk driver jailed, but, if married, his wife is thrown in the cooler, too. Wow! No doubt that right after he's released from jail he goes directly to the dog house — at home. And that can be worse than the firing squad! * * * SENATOR HAROLD HUGHES in a fiery speech in Iowa last Sunday, did not improve on his sliding popularity. With reference to President Nixon's powers vs. Congress, he blasted: "Our only recourse will be to impeach him." Senator, when are you going to stop finding fault with everything and start introducing ideas and legislative bills that will add to the well-being of this country, rather than subtract? * * * ESTERVILLE! What's missing? The spelling of our city is misspelled so many times — the "H" inadvertently left out. This is a costly error for a well-known out-of-state firm which specializes in printing school forms. The Estherville senior's graduation invitations were printed with the aforementioned mistake, and not discovered until they had been shipped here. ALTHOUGH SEVERAL BILLS are brought before the Iowa Legislature each day it's in session, HF56 was the one that caught our eye. Representative John C. Mendenhall (R-New Albin) wants to prohibit the sale of beer and soft drinks in disposable containers, a move which would provide youths with pocket money cleaning up the right-of-way should consumers still prefer to throw the returnable containers away. It would also take some of the load off the now burdened sanitary landfills in the state. * * * IT'S A SMALL WORLD as most of you have learned via traveling. An Olewein traveler was far up in Canada last fall, and at Port Cartier he noticed a Minnesota license plate. "I started talking with this snappy blonde whose name turned out to be Cynthia Aultz, who had a car full of Husky dogs," he told us. "I learned she and her mini-Huskies would be in Estherville, Iowa in February." (For the sled dog races, Feb. 10-11). * * * REPORTS, REPORTS and more reports! retary's secretary will be needed soon * * * It's getting so a see- in most businesses. PEOPLE'S VIEWS' Commerce president, * * * ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, TUES., JAN. 30, 1973 Page 9 August Freeberg Services In Dunnell Wednesday Gold Patrol Gold badge awards were presented to members of the school patrol at Roosevelt School this afternoon. The gold badge is awarded each month to one girl and one boy, chosen by patrol leaders on the basis of performance, leadership and responsibility. At front, above, are shown Dennis Spoo and Donnette Syverson who were given the award for January. Be­ hind them are Mrs. Elizabeth Korthals, patrol supervisor, standing next to December winners, Jim Broschart and Bobbi Bolty. Behind them are November winners, Jeff Kelch and Barb Sankey, and the October winners at the top of the stairs, Steve Johnson and Teresa Sisson.— Photo by Carol Higgins Permanent NHS Membership For Eleven Iowa Lakes Students A JOLLY OLD TIMER was telling at a local service station the other day that life wouldn't be complete without trying chewing tobacco. And then with a gleam in his eye, he told this story: Ole had been stranded on an island for seven years. But one day a beautiful female was washed onto the shores. Ole ran to her, and she asked, "How long have you been here?* Ole told her seven years. "Oh, I bet I have something you'd like," she said. And Ole exclaimed, "Don't tell me you got some chewing tobacco!" * * * QUESTION OFTEN ASKED: Why is the stop sign at Central Avenue school zone in operation when school's out? ... weekends? . .. holidays?.. . school vacations? We don't know the answer. Maybe somebody goofs and forgets to turn off the switch. * * * A SIGN SEEN recently at the church site, 2nd Avenue North: Union Baptist... A Key Redemption Center ... No Stamps Needed. * * * DON'T GET OUT those radish seeds and golf clubs yet and look forward to an early spring. The caterpillar's coloring last fall is predicting this winter's weather — on schedule creature indicated our weather to be in thi which have already come true: a cold forepart of winter, a warm middle trend, and a cold, stormy ending. It seems the caterpillar last fall was black on his front end, yellow in the center and had black spots on the tail section. Ho-hum!
