He Dodged A Skunk And New Car Piles Into Ditch No, we aren't calling anyone namfes—it was one of those little black and white kitties that Dr. W. W. Jolley of Fenton saw in the road between Armstrong and Ringsted about ' 12:15 Monday morning. He swerved his car to avoid hitting, it, and wound up in the ditch. His car turned end over end and as badly damaged.. After" waiting about 15 minutes in the car, thinking someone would come along to help him,.Dr. Jolleyi decided that if he was to keep from freezing to ,death; hefw'ouia have rto'fget out by /himself, ^o' fie braced his shoudler side of the <car, got his feet against the opposite door, • and^ managed to |orce the door "open so he could crawl' outC He then ' walked about three-quarters of a mile to a farm house and roused the occupants to call a doctor -from Armstrong, who gave first aid. He was then taken to the hospital at Estherville, where it was found "he had suffered a fractured .shoulder. He remained in the hospital until^ that afternpon, when he was " brought to his home in Fenton. - * , The doctor's car was a new Ford coupe whic^i he purchased early this month. He says that, from now on, the skunks can line up four abreast and ten deep, and he still ' will" plpw straight through them rather than try to. dodge. He estimated his speed at the time of the accident as about 60 or (35 miles per hour. He.was returning home from a late call when the mishap occurred, and was alone.

Peer The good-looking young man in the picture above—25 years old—has established himself as ^^r^ «ming kdss^c^ylarm|rfHe, nfarms 320 acres in Irvington-towriship, 3 miles east and 1 mile south of Algona, and Has been on the place since 1941. ' Corw s in is the/son of the late J. I. Peer. At present his mother lives at Renwick. On New Year's eve day in 1943 he was married to LaVonne Helmke i of Renwick, and the young couple has a son, Gary, 4. Gary, it seems, is musically inclined, knows all the rqdio programs, has a brand-new song book, and just,as we were about to leave after finishing our sketch, he suggested he, might sing "She's Too Fat for Me." Corwin says he had average good crops this ; past year. 126 acres or corn yielded 40 to 50 bushel to the acre. Soy beans ran 20, and forty bushels of oats averaged about' 45 bushel. He has 25 sows farrowing every Spring and 10 in /he Fall. One of the more outstanding things on the Cor. win Peer farm is dairying. He maintains a herd of 40 milk cows on D.H.I.A. test. The herd is comprised of purebred Ayrshires and some purebred Hoi- steins, He raises pure-bred Duroc hogs, and took • first prize boar at the Iowa State Fair, as he did at the Spencer fair. ' Corwin claims to like all sports, in fact, he says "he played all four years on everything" while attending Renwick High. As for the general farming , outlook, he says he feels a v little too young to speak as a lfarm>'.economist, but In his judgment the out;, look ;is'favorably and he will take things as they come!"
