The Upper Deg Moines-Republican, August 6,1930 ALGONA BLIND MAN VlSFTSiNHUMBOLDT Mada Annual Visit with Sis Blind School Mate, Clif. „ ford Miner, f 0 STtlTDY LAW AT IOWA €ITY THIS YU, Is Amblttotis and Has Specialized Iti TCyptog Wid Weavbg. Pafehts Beside Southwest of Algona. Fort DQHge Mesanfeer: William Hahle returned here during the yeeb for his annual visit with his former school mate, Clifford Miner, and he wore the same emile that Is characteristic of a person who has some affliction, for It Is a fact that people who have some serious affliction are often more cheerful than those with sound bodies. ' The two youths are both blind, and were students together at, the State School for the Blind at Vinton. William Hahle, -one of four sons born In the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hahle, resided on several Humboldt county farms before locating In Kossuth county. He will observe his twenty- sixth birthday Sunday. At the age of seven years, William Hahle lost his sight; eye specialists said, "Paralysis of the eye nerves which means darkness forever for the youth." And William cannot even distinguish daylight. For eleven years he was a student at Vinton, completing his course of study In 1926, specializing In typing, music and piano tuning. He entered the State Teachers' College at Cedar Palls where he remained for two years taking a liberal arts course of study; Here he did not have the advantage of using books with raised letters, made especially for blind people but depended wholly upon attending lectures and having some, friend read to him. It has been demonstrated at 'the school at Vinton, that blind students' have the same ambitions of the sighted; they have the same longings; the same likes and dislikes, and the same reactions .upon life as a whole. Last year William Hahle entered .the Iowa university, where he remained as as student and has completed fourteen years in study In the three different educational Institutions.. «.;.' At Iowa University, he again depended upon hearing lectures and having;: his ,schoolmate, Paul Johnson, of Kanawha- read to-him, the only way that he could obtain the knowledge. At the opening <jf the school year in September, Mr. Hahte *Ul return to Iowa university where he Will attenrt law school, which Ml i-equire several years more study. Mot unlike the sighted students, Hahle Is able to assist in paying his expenses by some occupation, and has forty pianos that he kcepp in tune, for piano tuning was one of his specialties •fthile at Vinton. Standing six feet, four inches, Mr. Hahle declares that if he is not sti6* cessful as an attorney, he will turn to some other occupation for he has not time to think of regrets'of any bitter* ness, but faces the future with courage and optimism. . His friend, Clifford Mine?, who is his host each year when he returns for a visit, was born on the Miner farm north of town, the-sob-of Mrs. Helen Miner, regent of the local chapter ft. A. B. ". -• •,••." During his school days at Vinton, Miner specialized in typing and weaving. He is an expert at either occupations. Many citizens here have brought discarded "furniture'from the attic, which has been rewoven by Mr, Miner. He has been successful in raising poultry- and swims. He enjoyes good lectures, music and takes advantage of the magazines and books published for people without Sight. His radio also gives him pleasure. Respected LuVerne Lady Died Last Week.

"Virgin Diamonds; 11 said Mr. Wehler, "are' genuine diamonds, which have never before been individually owned or worn, direct from South African, mines. "There has always been a supply of second-handed diamonds on the market, some of them, of course, with none too savory a reputation. Coming, through accepted channels, it was Impossible to distinguish such stones, although many jewelers have long attempted to handle only diamonds of known history. Since the war, moreover, the supply of such previously owned stones has substantially increased. "Realizing that the discriminating diamond buyer—unless, of course, he was Interested in a rare stone because of its historic background—much preferred to be the first to own and wear the diamond he purchased, I welcomed the opportunity to affiliate my store with the Virgin Diamond Syndicate, who, for some years, have specialized exclusively on selected rough stones, direct from the mines. 'Not only are' Virgin Diamonds of the finest quality, in all sizes and in a wide range of distinctive mountings, but their prices are standard all over the world." In addition, says Mr. Wehler, with every Virgin Diamond, the purchaser receives a registered'certificate of title which guarantees the origin and previous history of the stone.
