Carl Jr. As The Old Saying Goes* If s Names That Make The News "Names make news," an old adage familiar to almost every newspaperman and woman, was the basts for a survey made by an Upper Des Mbines reporter who has learned that 2,159 names make a newspaper. Last week's Upper Des Molnes, the April 8 edition, was carefully checked and rechecked to find out how many names were Included in the 80 columns that constituted the 10 pages. And, counting each name only once, it was found there were more than 2.000 included. Of the total number, over one hundred "John Henrys" hit the front page. In almost every instance, these names were found In stories of county-wide interest. Each of the sections of the county which are represented every week were also checked. Armstrong was represented with 25 names; 476 Algonlans got in print: and there were 158 from Hurt. An even 160 from Seneca, 13 from Bancroft, 30 from Doan, B from Falrvlew, 106 from Fenton, 32 from Four Corners, 18 from Good Hope, 52 from Grant. 54 from Hebron, 23 from Irvington, and 92 from Lakota were also included In this edition. Ledyard's total was 57; Livermore's 81: Lone Rock's, 163; Lu- Vcrne's, 54: Ottosen's, 45; Portland's, 88; Sexton's, 43; St. Benedict's. 18: St. Joe's. 83: Tltonka's, 78; Wesley's, 33; West Bend's, 16. nnd Whittemore's, 264. Upon completion of her survey, the reporter said she had not counted names out of mere curiosity nor had she done the work because of any great interest In mathematics. Her chief reason, it seems, was to make it apparent to readers that The Algona Upper Des Moines believes names make news and is always happy to have all items of interest concernfng all families in the county. of Osage. Ewald of Algona, Herman and Archie of Whittemore. and six daughters. Mrs. Ed Hanson of Algona. Mrs. Will Schwanke of Cedar Falls. Mrs. Reinhold Ostwald.
