4-Alflona Upper Des Math** Tuesday, Morch 23, 1948. -V ' . ' • ' Truth & Consequences On .Program At Lone Rock ', Lone Rock' -^ The Lone Rock Comrrtunity club held its monthly mcetigg TJVut'sday evening at the LoneTtbclrschool, beginning at 7:15. • Discussion was held concerning the Lone Rock baseball team for the following summer. It wds dccfd^fl' lo ^have a team \\iith A. A. MCr'uegei' as the temporary manager. .Further discussion will be held at the baseball meeting held after the county meeting is, heltl. The meeting was cut, short due to _lhe Truth and Consequence program* and basket social that was held afterwards,, this beginning at 8:15. The president of the Community club. Jesse M. Blanchard Jr. opened the program with a talk;o.n the .purpose of the Communit^ club and .the. activities that are'planned for the community. E. M. Jensen then took over as Ralph .Edwards on the Truth and • Consequence program. The twelve contestants from the town and country were called forward to take their places on the stage. Those taking the side of the country were Ben Schmidt, Mrs. Mcrwin Marlow, J. M. Anderson, Mrs. Ralph Bierstodt, Dell Marlow, Mrs. Alfred Schadendorf; for the town side were: A. A. Krueger, Don Marlow. Miss Pat Heyer, Mrs. Erich Seegebarth, Harlan Blanchard, Mrs. Art Priebe. As none of the contestants, except maybe a couple, told the exact truth they paid the following conseqvtences: Ben Schmidt sang the "Too Fat Polka" in the true Arthur Godfrey fashion: A. A. Krueger sang the "Four Leaf Clover" and all the women swooned: Mrs. Merwin Marlow and Don Marlow thoroughly enjoyed a contest trying to see who could get to a marshmallow tied in the middle of a piece of string, by chewing the string with their mouths. After quite a tussle they ended in what you might say was a tie, with the country team enjoying the eating of the marshmallow; J. M. Anderson and Miss Pat Heyer wore rivals in the battle of the breaking of the three balloons the fastest. Of course each contestant had a little help and snitched once or twice but Mr. Anderson succeeded in beating Miss Heyer to the punch. Mrs. Erich Seegebarth was called upon Solve HEATING Colonial's New ALL-FUEL FURNACE A complete and economical forced air system that can be easily converted from coal to gas or oil.

Mrs. Ralph Bierstedt had a choice of showing the latest dance steps, with Ben Schmidt by popular demand; or giving a short talk on Chickens. For some Unknown reason she chose the latter and really made it short. The next contestant was rather a novelty as he was missing a few molars and bicuspids. That's right it was Harlan, better known as "Duck" Blanchard. Mr. Jensen thought he looked rather hungry after being not able to eat for a while so he gave him a nice, big, juicy, red apple to munch on for the audience. He and Dell Marlow were-supposed to see who finished first, as Dell was given a bottle;of pop with a straw, which'he was to drink-in 30 seconds. Duck apparently had help from the town team, by all the mouths that were moving at one time, except of course.poor 'Toothless'. Mrs. Priebe and Mrs. Schadendorf were called upon to lead the audience in the singing of God Bless America, which concluded the program. Mrs. W. G. Flaig accompanied the singers on the piano. Shortly after the finish the votes by the three judges who were: J. F. Quinn, Lawrence Newbrough, and of course the official applause meter, which by the way turned out to be the old school clock, the votes were totaled and it was decided that it ended in a tie, with each of the contestants receiving a gift. Immediately following the program the baskets were auctioned with Fred Flaig as the auctioneer and Angus Cotton as clerk with E. M. Jensen as helper. There were many baskets there and hll ' of them very lovely and original. The first prize that went to the grade school girl, under the 9th grade, was won by Miss Marlcne Anderson, which was purchased for $5i First prize in the single and high school girl's class was given to Miss Kathryn Willrett and was purchased for $2.50. The first prize was tied in the married women's class so went to two ladies, Mrs. H. A. Holmgren whose basket sold for l?5 and Mrs. Ronald Christensori whose basket was sold for $5.50. A total of $126 was taken in in all, which will be used for community projects. The evening ended a grand success with a capacity crowd of around 200 present. Visit Fort Dodge Mr. and Mrs. A. A.
