S. Representative-elect from this district at Storm Lake Monday. don smith A young lady driver was arrested here recently - and it seems she was featured at an area spot doing the latest dances. She paid an appearance bond at the police station here for speeding — so didn't have to appear in Mayor Bill Finn's court. While discussing the matter with Bill, we suggested he might have had to charge her with go-go-going too fast 1 PAUL Seller, local lad who played a lot of good football for Notre Dame this fall, stopped in Dec. 20 for a visit at the UDM. We were all happy to see him. He has received questionnaires from every one of the professional football clubs, asking him his weight and other vital statistics - and will undoubtedly come up when the draft of college football talent is held late In January. He was watched all season, along with several other ND regulars, by scouts from the pro clubs -and his stock probably went up when he was named to the second offensive unit on the Sporting News All- America team. He will graduate from Notre Dame next spring with a degree in finance. We'll bet when he turns someone down on a loan, they won't argue ! "HOW were your bees last year, old man f "Pretty good. Very little honey, but they stung my mother- in-law twice 1" HERE'S an oddity Evelyn Cady reported to us. Tom Stull, who gained fame at AHS many years ago for his prowess as an athlete, died last summer after visiting here - and had made many trips from his home in California to Algona for similar visits. A few years ago, Tom was struck by a car at an intersection at Glendale, Calif. About a month after Tom died, his son, Tom, Jr., who lived with him, died of injuries he received when he was also struck by an auto at an intersection very near the one where his father was Injured earlier. Truth IS stranger than fiction. HATS off dept. - This time to Algona' s firemen, who donated money for purchase of gifts, candy and fruit for students at the local School for Retarded Children. And when they delivered the items Dec. 20, one of the more popular members of the organization donned a Santa Claus suit, adding more realism to the trip to the school. It was a project well done - and there ought to be more like it. Congrats, men 1 "SO you were convicted of burglary twice, robbery with violence three times and manslaughter once?" asked the magistrate. "That's right, sir," replied the defendant. "After that, I seemed to drift into a life of crime." THE people down at Nevada, disgruntled at vandals who seemed to have a lot of fun stealing Christmas decorations and lights, decided to do something about it — so they formed an unofficial vigilante group- and SWEA-EAGLE f By Mrs. Kenneth Brones = Daryl and James Larson of St. Olaf College at Northfield are at the parental Harvey C. Larson home for the Christmas holiday. Marilyn Peterson of Denver and Gary Coles of Jamestown, N. D., were weekend guests at the Harvey C. Larsons.

The vigilantes said they were going to patrol the city with light caliber guns loaded with mustard seed or salt-loaded shells and the mayor stated he hoped they would bring In some of the culprits so he could take severe action. Bravo to you, Nevada. THIS miniskirt thing has gotten out of hand - especially in Germany where even some of the gookier men are wearing them in public. Perhaps you glimmed the picture in the dailies the other day of a group of four, two men and two girls, attired in miniskirts and wearing long hair. The photo, snapped from the rear, made it very difficult to decide which two were men and which were gals. Our first reaction was "Aaargh", so we asked some of the rest of the people around the office - and the reaction was the same, so we guess we're not wrong all the time. IT would appear that Ronald Reagan, ex- WHO radio announcer and screen star who was elected governor of California in November, has done well learning the political ropes. A memo warning the press against news releases relating to Reagan issued b,y "unauthorized persons" was distributed at Sacramento. A Reagan press aide was asked, "Who are these unauthorized persons?" The aide replied, "I'm not authorized to say." - ?A little piece of all of us died recently when Walt Disney succumbed. His more than 600 films have left an Indelible mark on practically everyone who has ever been In a theater - and not once did he produce a movie that could not be called family entertainment. From Mickey Mouse to his ventures in films on animals and pioneer life, we can't recall one of his productions that wasn't a smash success. Of course, his Disneyland is the most famous entertainment center in the world and when he died he was in the midst of establishing two more similar playgrounds, another in California and one in Florida that is to cover 27,000 acres and to be named Disney World. Yessir, from rather meager beginnings, Mr. Disney certainly reached the heights - and he will be sorely missed in an industry in which he was the leader. _ 9 - "THE boss is mean," the man told his wife, "but he's fair." "What do you mean by that?" "He's mean to everybody.'' ipiiiiiiiiiiniwiinniiiimiiininfliiiiiflwmiiiinininifflH Notes Of (Servicemen iiiniiniiniiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiininniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiitnii PHU BAI, VET NAM-Marine Private First Class Marlyn L.
