tot* 2—Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, March 5, 1968 me of painting plans for the interior of the office and Mr. and Mrs. Roy Petersen had a grandson with them as we looked around their neat furniture store. Wilfred Stoeber shot the breeze with us a few minutes in his hardware store and we wound up the Fenton stop with a nice visit at Ken Krause's garage. We really enjoyed seeing our friends up that way I IF Zsa Zsa Gabor had married Minnehaha her name would have been Zsa Zsa Haha. THERE was a rather interesting article in one of the dailies recently which originated in London. The headline was "Do Women Drivers Really Dress to Kill?" A road safety officer there claims the modern femme fatale is the woman driver who wears a long-line bra and tight corset. THE officer, Maj. Frederick Cook, launched an appeal for safer clothes for women drivers. He claims such underclothing restricts breathing and makes a woman hot and uncomfortable, and backs it up with a report that is a result of standing on street corners watching women drivers. "She spends her time trying to relieve the discomfort," he says, "taking her hand or hands offthe wheel so she can yank at the offending garment." HE also charges that when they refuse to budge, she becomes irritable, her attention wanders and to escape the torture, she puts her foot down and more than likely has an accident. ONE method that he has proposed for solving the undergar- met problem among women drivers is - "I suppose the ideal outfit would be nothing at all, but that might distract other drivers." Now, that's an understatement if we ever heard one! We've never researched the problem - but it sounds like the type of job that would be very interesting. IF Lady Bird Johnson had married Admiral Byrd her name would be Lady Bird Byrd! DEBT- "Avoiding like wise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertions in time of peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves ought to bear." When Gen. George Washington made that statement while he was president of the United States, he had the right idea. What ever happened to it? MY Trudy was exercising one morning a couple of weeks ago- and Martha (2 1/2) presented quite an unforeseen problem. It was especially difficult for Trudy to go through any of the required motions when Martha insisted on running over her while astride a tricycle. Don't know if Trudy's aches and pains the next couple of days were from the exercise or getting run over. Lucky Martha doesn't know how to drive a truck - Trudy would have really felt run down. ONE of our friends on the street the day after the Historical Society's annual bean supper Feb. 22 referred to Algona as the "windy city." ' DO you realize that if Humpty Dumpty had married Hubert Humphrey the name would then have been Humpty Dumpty Humphrey? RUSS and Mid Waller went to Illinois the weekend of Feb. 24- so I was the UDM's delegate to Fenton for a half-day run Friday afternoon. I've made the trip many times down through the years, but it has been some time since the last one. Really enjoyed it. The day was a nice one — and the reception received from everyone I talked with while there was the friendliest possible. THE first trio I ran into consisted of Mayor Arnie Hansen and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Eigler. Had a coke with Paul while we chatted about a variety of events (Fenton and otherwise) - and he still makes cokes that must compare with the best in the country. THEN my travels took me to Pete's Market where we met Pete Saxton for the first time. He's dressed the place up and as he says, "got the merchandise down off the ceiling." Gerald Voigt at the bank was pretty busy, but got to chat with Mm for a minute, then on to Les Weisbrod's implement shop where he informed me he had a good tractor man back with him, Mervin Widdel. At Frank McFalTs plumbing shop, talked with Mrs, Wendell Rusch (his daughter) because frank was away.
