NEIGHBORS GOOD AROUND THE TOWN & COUNTRY Meet John Simon Of Algona Our Country Neighbor this week is a fellow who has spent all of his 61 years in Kossuth county, John P. Simon, who with his wife farms 160 acres four miles south and two miles west of Algona. Mr. Simon, a member of the Farm Bureau and KCs, has been on the same farm for 52 years, with the exception of three years right after he and the former Arline Stewart were married. Their wedding was in 1933. He has 34 acres of corn, 30 acres of oats, 41 acres of beans and eight acres of pasture on his farm. This year, he fed his most recent group of calves out for market — and he used to raise a lot of purebred Polled Shorthorns. His favorite job around the farm ? Field work, and while he used to hunt a lot, his main hobby now is a little fishing when he has time. John's parents, both deceased, were John and Catherine Simon, who were well-known in the Ottosen-West Bend area. His only sister is also dead. Mrs. Simon, who was born on a farm 1 1/2 miles from their present place, met John when both lived in the same area and they had known each other for quite a while before their marriage. She is a daughter of the late Cleve and Agnes Stewart, well-known in this area. She is a member of C. D. A., the Cresco Mother-Daughter Club andRiverdaleHomemakers, considers sewing her hobby (and she used to knit, too) — and according to her husband is a wonderful cook.
