MILLER BEAVTY PARLOR OVER BEHLMER'S PHONE 804 ALGONA, IOWA In a street car, recently, in Minneapolis, a little girl pointed her finger squarely at our Henry Guderian, looked up at her mother and said, "Mom, looket the funny Mans." • • • In Chicago a large mouth bass, a beautifully mounted specimen, was packed in a box, carried to the post office, taken by truck to the depot shipped by train to Algona, another ride by truck, delivered by; carrier to Lawrence Gillespie who tucked i under his arm and walked home Turning from the street his fee went out from under him, the fish fell, so did he, but the fish lost its tail in a clean break after nearing within a few feet of the wall on which it was to hang. • » • Dolph Baney and John Foth rode to Bancroft with John Schumacher The two visited while John tended to business. John's business never terminated for he left the boys visiting. Eleven o'clock that night while at his son's home near Irvington, he remembered of leaving Raney and Foth at Bancroft that morning. It was too late to right the wrong for his passengers decided to return home at ten o'clock without waiting longer. • * * Eddie Ostrum of the Rhythm club local dance orchestra, reports a new feature with the band on its next appearance at the V.-P. W. hall. The golden voiced Chris Wallukait will be soloist, singing the "B" song now heard over the radio. • • • A gentleman who works in an office at the court house, and his wife, entertained a young couple returning to Algona. Refreshments were served with a mixture of soda water, lemon Juice, meraschino cherries, ice cubes and a healthy shake. During the preparation conversation dwelled on an interesting card game played a few night ago. This distracted the attention from the most important ingredients of the drink, for it was left untouched, nearby. The guest was aware of the negligence and oftentimes asked his hostess, "How she liked the lemonade." The host got a big kick out of his glass, unaware the others were laughing at such a possibility. * * * Any Algonian driving on the main thoroughfares of Fort Dodge and Mason City can well be thankful for the common snow shoveling and street cleaner of their home town. The streets of those cities are like dirt roads in the country, where leep ruts are cut and frozen. Bouncing sidewise, hitting the top and then the bottom, the sure way of •emaining in the car is hanging to the steering wheel .and follow it in a parade of foot deep gullies of ice and snow. • • * The city has two portable stop signs placed at intersections where school traffic and auto traffic seem to be the thickest. On the corner near the Elk-Greenberg buildings is a site for a third sign. School kids are plentiful and a party living two doors away has counted eleven times when cars and kids met, but none serious. Let's have another. A death or a child crippled for life will be too late. A friend came along and asked John Beiser if he wanted a ride home. John visioned a long walk on icy streets, hurried with his coat and rubbers and rode home. When home he saw an empty garage. He had driven his own car up town. There was no friend around to give him a ride back. « • • A bunch of high school boys hung around the doors catching what they could of the basketball game Saturday night. They couldn't muster, or didn't intend to, twenty- five cents for admission. Every game has the same bothersome, in- the-way loiterers. But this one is particularly different because some of these boys had spent a part of the day shooting craps at from five cents to five dollars in stakes. What would a mere twenty cents admission mean to them?
