2-Algona (la.) Upper Det Motnet THURSDAY, OCT. 20, 1966 WleM MA IN THESE DAY OF RAPID transportation, movies and television, great men, and would-be greats face far more hazards than historical figures on any other era. While Instant exposure to millions of people does have its advantages, there is also the chance that something as trivial as a pouch under the eyes or a certain expression of the mouth can lose elections, diminish popular acclaim and even change the course of world eventsl Thus , we have an entirely new profession, vital to those on their way to fame, that of image making. - o - IN THE NEWS, RECENTLY a well-known former high government official denied that he would seek the services of the so- called image makers in future elections but chances are there have been times when he has wished he had such an assest during the campaign of 1960. And out in that other state that also raises oranges,, a movie actor seems to be using every trick he ever learned in the acting profession to win an office. All of this makes me wonder what it would have been like if in the past, some historical figures had used the services of the image makers. And if we could peak into the confidential files of some of these imaginery image makers we might find some reports like these: - o - CLIENT: Lincoln, Abraham OCCUPATION: Client seeks elegance in attire, polish In his manners, and social savvy for Washington tea parties. ASSETS: Client has certain way of getting a point across with a joke; has good following with mid-westerners but not accepted In Eastern society. Wife considerably more sophisticated due to Southern plantation experience. Play this down. Client has good debating experience. Puff this. LIABILITIES: High nasal voice; several facial moles, awkward gait, too much leg for his pants, lack of concern for social niceties, tends to brood; Is subject to headaches. NOTATIONS: This is an extremely tough job and a long range one. No immediate rush. Next engagement is a speech at Gettysburg, where major oration of day Is assigned elsewhere, so this client's remarks will receive scant notice. - o - CLIENT: Leofric, Lady Godiva. OCCUPATION: Wife of Leofric, The Dane, Lord of Coventry. JOB REQUIREMENT: To make client so attractive to her husband that his hard heart will melt enough to take off the heavily increased tax load on his Conventry subjects. ASSESTS: Greatly beloved by the subjects for her gracious acts to the sick; long, beautiful hair; one white horse. LIABILITIES: Extreme modesty. NOTATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS: After due consideration, we suggest that Lady G. trust the townspeople to stay Inside heavily shuttered doors while she compiles with her husband's unreasonable request to lower taxes If she rides through the street clad only in aforementioned, long, beautiful hair. - o - CLIENT:..Colombo, Christoforo. , . OCCUPATION: Weaver and part-time navigator. JOE REQUIREMENT': Upgrade Mr.' Colombo's Image sufficiently that he can persuade some ruling monarch to finance his proposed voyage to find a western route to Asia.

NOTATIONS: Client already unsuccessful In his attempts to persuade Genosse officials, the King of Portugal, King Henry VD, England . . Suggest he try Queen Isabella of Spain. Also recommend name change to Christopher Columbus. - o - CLIENT: Washington, Gen,George OCCUPATION: Commander-in-Chlef, Continental Army. JOB REQUIREMENT: To project "folksy" image for appeal to a popular electorate in the event proposed United States of America becomes a reality. ASSETS: Luxurious Virginia plantation, Mt.

(Play this down). Father of Country image difficult as client is childless. NOTATIONS: Puff client's common-as-old-shoe image in case Colonies go democratic; puff land-owning aristocracy if monarchy developes. Emphasize the General's affection for Martha's neices and nephews. Invent some sort of cherry tree story to puff truthfulness. - o - CLIENT: Stevenson, Adalii OCCUPATION: Governor of Illinois JOB REQUIREMENT: To upgrade appeal to masses for client's campaign for president of United States.

A CLASSIFIED AP * New»p»per" WILL GET FAST RESULTS Kiwanis Club Travelogue Series Opens Algona Kiwanis Club members are still selling tickets for the annual Travelogue series ofpro- grams which will begin next Wednesday, Oct. 19. Anyone interested may obtain a ticket from any club member. The Travelogue project is used by the club here to raise money for its Student Loan Fund - a very worthy cause. To date, according 'to club records, no less than 14 graduates of local high schools (Algona public, Garrigan and St. Cecelia's) have obtained grants as a result of the plan and used the money to further their education. Loans made since 1956 have ranged from $100 to $800, according to Mel Bay, Don Frederick, John Hayes, M. J. Mowers, L. A. Wlnkel and Wes Bartlett, chairman, of the Student Loan board of the local club. Also, according to the records, $4,670 has been loaned to students, with $2,785 paid back. All but five of the 14 have been paid in full and for the most part, the balance due is from recent graduates now attending college. The Kiwanis Club has raised the funds necessary to make the loans through a variety of projects, with the Travelogue Program, which is beginning its sixth year, responsible for almost half the funds. Programs presented prove to be very interesting. Dick Palmer To Headline Coin Show At Clarion Plans for Clarion Iowa Fifth Annual Coin and Antique Show are fast rounding into shape.
