Tilmer Halvorson of Ledyard Tells of European Band Tour Ledyard: On Thursday afternoon in the high school auditorium Henrietta O'Keefe introduced Tilmer Halverson who gave a very interesting talk about his trip to Europe with the Luther College band on its Diamond Jirbilee tour. The band, composed of 73 pieces, began their trip on June 3rd. This was his 31st year at Luther and he is 75 years old. On this trip King Haakon VII appointed him as a "Knight of the First Class of the Order of St. Olav." There are now 66 first class knights In the U. S. This order was started in 1847 and is awarded In recognition of distinguished services rendered a nation and mankind. In each city they went they were met by an escort. Some of the cities In the U. S. in which they gave concerts were Madison, Milwaukee, DeKalb, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, D. C. At the latter place they visited the Capitol, Smithsonian Institute, Arlington National Cemetery. They were In New York four days before sail- Ing. They visited Radio City and saw Major Bowes, Millionaire Row and numerous other interesting sights. On July 4, their busses took them out to port where they sailed on the Bergensfjord for Europe. This ship travelled approximately 390 miles a day. The fifth day at sea was very rough and quite a number did not report at dinner. On the last day on board, July 12, the captain entertained ' the band at din- ner, and thanked them for the music as they had daily rehearsals from 10:30 to 11:30. His name was Captain Bull, and, by the way, was born In Iowa. He stated it was the 400th trip for the Bergenfjord and he had captained it 19 years. They landed at Bergen where they were met by American Consul Dunlap and also American Consul to Norway, Mr. Beck. The Bergen band led them to King Haakon's hall, which was an exceptional event as ordinarily only notobles are allowed to enter. From Bergen to Oslo was a very beautiful trip of over 300 miles, made by railway and supposed to be the most expensive In the world with its descents and climbs. There are many tunnels totalling 30 miles in all and It rises to an altitude of 4.007 feet at its highest station. At Tronjhelm, Norway, King Haakon was present at the concert and some were honored by shaking his hand. About a month was spent in Norway. Then they went to Copenhagen, to Berlin, Germany, across the North Sea to London, where they visited many noted places. On August 22, they sailed for home from Southampton, England. At New York, Sept. 4, they were met by their busses. Enroute home they gave concerts and visited the Gettysberg cemetery. This was certainly a wonderful experience and educational trip for .Tilmer and one never to be forgotten. They travelled approximately 22,000 miles. x Barberaig Has It Ups and Downs, O'Keefe Finds After Working Many Places Lakota Record: There's a say- Ing that "variety is the spice of life." Doubtless there Is no one in Lakota better qualified to verify the truth of the expression than Oran O'Keefe, well known barber here. For the past 34 years, "Orie" has deftly applied the razor and clipper to the jaws and cranlums of countless thousands of shaggy and bearded individuals who sought relief in his chair. But these 34 years have been colorful ones for this tonsorial artist, who by the way, is proud of the Irish in his name. In fact he 1ms attracted notoriety In newspapers who publicized him as the "Moving Barber". In this respect, O'Keefe has hung up something of a remarkable record. In a recent interview with the writer, Orrie recalled that he has owned or operated shops in at leadt 17 towns in Iowa. Starting as a "iatherer" In a shop here at Lakota in 1902, Orrie learned the trade and started out for himself in a shop at Rake. The shop at Lakota was then in tho building now occupied by Wm. Schultz and was owned by W. D. Balnbrldge.

If it is new, you will nnd it at Neville's Shoe Store ALGONA, IOWA From Rake, Orrie went in succession to Iowa Falls, Algona, Hartley. Buffalo Center, Story City, Algona, Gait, Belmond, Humboldt, Lakota, Ledyard and back to Lakota. One summer he yielded to a long cherished desire and larked around, working in shops at Forest City. Entherville, Mankato, Minn., Spirit Lake, Dunnell, Minn., and Kanawha. "The most famous person I ever worked on", Orrie related, "was Frank Gotsch, world's heavyweight wrestling champion. He and a party of his friends came into my shop at Algona one fall, while on n hunting trip. He was champion then, but I did not recognize him at first. He remarked after I had finished that I 'either had a darn Rood razor or I knew how to push It.' "I shaved several governors, including Kendall and Hammill ami one other many years ago right here in Lakota. 1921, 1922 and 1923 were the top years In the barber- Ing business. It was at Story City then, and I can remember that my own receipts from the shop often totalled $325 in one month. The money just flowed in during those days." Orrlo has now been In Lakota for 15 years -since coming here after his tour of other places. Coming in contact as he has with the "mill run" of the country's population, during the past 34 years, has given Orrie n whimsical and carefree philosophy, and a keen comprehension of the weaknesses and peculiarities of the people whom he serves. But the years have given him a generous heart and many friends. "But barbering isn't what it used to be", he observed, "no tips, anymore, no $3 jobs, less bobbed hair, longer waits between haircuts, all makes a difference In this business." Orrie also has a service station, just north of town where his wife and son have built up a very commendable business in the past year. Titonka Man Buys Homer General Store Titonka: L. B. Larsen purchased a general store and gasoline station at Homer, 12 miles southwest of Webster City, Thursday, where the Larsens will move the first of the week.

Read Th? Want Ad*—It Pays How To Make Farm Machinery Last Much Longer Than Usual There are two items of expense in operating 1 a farm that run into a lot of money eaeli year— 1st—Spring repairs to machines. 2nd—Replacement of old machines. All of the h'rst and most of the second of these two costs can be traced directly to rust, due to exposure to the weather. Statistics show that the average life of a protected machine is practically twice as long as the same machine left out in the open exposed to the weather. If you have records to show what you pay for repairs to and replacement of machines, you know it is a very large item in your annual costs. A Large Part of That Cost Can Be Saved by having a shed in which to store your machines. It doesn't need to cost much and will pay for itself quickly out of what it saves for you. The weather is at work now on any of your machines that are not under cover. Your shed should therefore be planned and built as quickly as possible to prevent further damage—damage that will cost you actual cash next spring as usual. Let us help you plan a shed to protect your out- h't. No charge or obligation in getting facts and figures. F. S.
