BY RUSS WALLER Friday, 25 or more Algona high students, and supervisors, will go by school bus to Belmond on a volunteer mission of help, taking sack lunches - just in case. There is a teachers' meeting Friday, so no school ... The first 25 that signed up are making the trip to the tornado- stricken community. * * * Honesty still prevails. The Belmond tornado blew out the windows and display contents of a jewelry store at Belmond, including valuable items ... a day or two afterward three diamond rings were returned by the person who found them after they had been sucked out of the broken window. + * + "1 don't mind the work" said Bill Kern, in a letter mailed Oct. 6 to his brother Del at West Union . . . two days before he was killed while on patrol in Viet Nam. It was his last letter to his brother. * * * Susan Hantelman of Fenton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Hantelman, left last week to return to Nigeria for another two years as a resident nurse at a missionary hospital in that African country . ,. included among the items she is taking back, is a large drum filled with canned foods, to be shipped by water ... she herself is flying back. The drum of food will reach her in a couple of months. There is plenty of food, said Susan, but not always some of the things you yearn for once in awhile from "back home." + + * With the passing of George Clifton Benschoter of Plum Creek, came the first break in a chain of unusual relationship. The three families that settled in Plum Creek in early days each had four boys, who all grew up together and were the best of friends. They all stayed pretty close to the home grounds. Of the 12 boys in this group, Cliff Benschoter is the first to pass away. In the Benschoter family there were Arthur, Gilbert, Cliff and Hollis. In the Hoover family there are Cliff, Ted, Luverne and Robert, the latter of Britt. In the Kain family there are John, Edward, Robert and George. Mrs. Mary Kain is the only parent living, * * * Last Saturday night Don Smith of our staff had a call from Minneapolis from Paul Seeley, up there for the Iowa-Minnesota game. Paul wanted to know how Garrigan came out against Kuemper, not knowing the game had been postponed to Sunday . . . they had a nice visit about the weather and the Hawkeyes. * + * There are compensations involved for public services rendered. Both Casey Loss of Algona, member of the State Board of Regents, and Don Murray, state senator, will be special guests of honor at Iowa's Homecoming game this Saturday ... if they accept the invitations. Don't know whether or not the halftime show includes numbers by the International Singers of SUI, but if it does, one of the 20 members will be Allan Bode of Algona. * * * If anyone thinks the idea of low-level dams along the forks of the Des Moines river is unwise, it is interesting to note that seven such dams are to be constructed in Minnesota along the Minnesota and Blue Earth rivers toward their sources. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers doing planning, work, and we presume footing the bill. * * * The only difference between opportunity and temptation is that opportunity knocks once, but temptation keeps hammering. * * * It seems that the pileup of third-class mail is reaching monumental proportions at key postal centers ... if you never got it would you miss it? * * * FAMOUS LAST LINE - You can't clear your own fields while you're counting the rocks on your neighbor's place.

It got very hot here Friday and the reading at noon hit 80 degrees. A heavy downpour of rain arrived, along with dark clouds Friday afternoon after an earlier prediction of snow.
