«•••••§••*•*•*•••••••••• Alqono Honuth (ountv THURSDAY, MAY 20, IMS - ALGONA, IOWA - IN THE CELEBRITY game the other night on the idiot tube one of the questions involved those hideous hose with decorations some of the girls are wearing. Oddly enough six of the panel voted in favor—even one man—the other three men were honest and said they looked like what they thought—awful. Some of these black jobs have diamonds, squares, stripes, spiders and stuff like that embedded in the stockings. Most women will squeal at the sight of a .spider, mouse, snake, etc., but they wear snakeskin shoes, and spiders on their stockings! Without a doubt as admitted by one or two of the panel girls, the stockings are to attract attention to the gal's legs. It's as simple as that. Most men however are of the opinion it 'taint necessary to doll 'em up—the men will still look. And when the fancy stuff is revolting what's the purpose of calling attention to them THAT way. Oh well, the Old Goat is getting along—he still don't understand women and it's too late to worry about it. THAT TOMCAT at Atlantic sure blew all his nine lives in en* burst of glory, but in the meantime knocked out electricity in'half the town. Seems the tomcat got up a light pole and nonchalantly stepped across a circuit-breaker. That cat was about as singed as,a cat can get. It probably proves something, and maybe the cat was experimenting, but as a result the cat isn't saying anything. Maybe it just proves that .-anything tomcatting around takes a mighty good chance of end. ing-up in a burst of glory— but ending. ^ ANYONE INTERESTED can find out a lot about women by just, reading the advertising in the pages devoted to such in the papers. Of course a man will have his illusions busticated, but it is educational for the likes of the Old Goat who's too fer along to make any difference. Anyway here's what one advertisement said: "Any good girdle will do a job on the disaster areas— tummy, thighs, hips and rear . . . Often your hips begin where your waist ought to be." It goes on with a pitch for the brand which is supposed to waste a bit of the waist area. How come, what's "disaster" area? with this PHOOEYI The Beatles are going to be in California and are expected to haul down $300,000 for a two-day caterwauling to the squeals of teenage girls. It will cost an estimated $50,000 for extra police while they are yelling and beating their gums. It's a sad commentary on the coming generation that they go gaga over such an outrageous bunch of sound. None of these kid combos of guitar and adnoids has any music in them. And the promoters of such appearances just for the moolah certainly have no conscience or consideration for the welfare of their world, Phooeyl GOODNESS GRACIOUS! Rich. mond, Va. has lost its "Kissinf Lane"! There was such a street in that city but when the city fathers meeting in council tried to find it they couldn't! The papers asked those who knew where it was or where it was supposed to be to please let the city know. Shucks — better ask the young folks, They probably have 3 lot of them and not known by the name either. FIRST PkACf for this week's award for the most obnoxious commercial is won hands down by that "Mountiiij Pew" atro- Wage rates for beet field work are announced Fair and reasonable wage requirements for work in connection with the 1965 crop of sugar- beets were announced today by Richard I. Anderson, chairman, ASCS. The new wage rates became effective April 5, 1965. Other provisions remain the same as in a previous determination. Eligibility for payments under the sugar act of 1948, as amended, depends on the producers' payment of wages not less than those set by the Secretary of Agriculture. The new determination establishes minimum time rates at $1.25 an hour for each worker for each of the hand labor operations of trimming, hoeing, hoe trimming, blocking and thinning, weeding pulling, topping, loading, or gleaning. Special wage and hour provisions govern the employment of workers 14 to 16 years of age. When employment for the hand labor operations 'is on a piecework basis, the following minimum rates per acre apply: Trimming $10; hoeing, $12; hoe trimming, $14.50; blocking and thinning, $20; and weeding, $7.50. (These rates may be reduced for wide-row planting by percentages varying according to row spacings.) The piecework rate for other hand labor operation involving the removal of beets or weeds and for pulling, topping, loading or gleaning shall be as agreed upon between the producer and worker provided the average hourly rate of earnings of each worker is not less than $1.25 per hour.
