6-Algano (lo.) Upper &#* tootne*Tuesday, September 18, . There are twin daughters in the Harold Erpelding family. It was a cute idea spelling Judie to match Julie. The family recently moved to Mason City. * • « A real butterfly now perches amid my violets. I wonder how long he will remain perky and live looking. Carol Mortenson was with his relatives on a fishing trip recently and his brother caught a butterfly which was; flitting around in friendly fashion. Carl pressed the butterfly in his billfold, and brought it to me as a souvenir. * * * Mrs Will Marty and Emma Marty, LuVerne, visited Mrs Ethel Gilles and some LuVerne residents here one day last week. Mrs Gilles also had as callers Sept. 4 her former pastor and wife, Rev. and Mrs S. H. Hammer who had the Methodist pastorate at Swea City when Mrs Gilles lived there. The Hammers are now located at Gilmore City. » • » Mr and Mrs Don Asa and children were thrilled at seeing President Kennedy at Pueblo, New Mex., when they were on vacation in the southwest. He smiled and waved to them in friendly fashion. For the moment the only person of distinction I recall seeing was McDonald Carey. Oh yes, I seem to recall William J. Bryan was here on a chautauqua program years ago. * * * Mrs Bertha Keller had as call- ersone day recently Mr and Mrs Joe Iseman, Burlington, and Mrs Silas Banwart, West Bend. # * * Mrs Wllma Kuhlman and Diane are home from the Worlds Fair at Seattle. They accompanied Carl Grisham as far as Denver and took a jet to the coast. They were guests of Mr and Mrs Edgar Campbell who live at Edmunds, not far from the Fair. The return trip was made via plane to Minneapolis. Among the interesting things they saw were tho Ballard locks, foreign ships and personal vessels — probably yachts, though Mrs Kuhlmann didn't mention them as such. I am too much of an "inlander" to know much about sea craft and the distinguishing names. Sailboat, rowboat, steamer and outboard motor boat are about as far as I can go. :> * •* I hadn't seen Sophia Johannsen in years until she and her husband Lawrence Peril, Whittemore, were here one morning and mistook my room for the office. The years have changed both of us. Remember when she clerked in the Lusby drug store? It was over 40 years ago. "Over the Coffee used to be my first each morning but I've switched to "The Family Circus'' and O.T.C. comes second now. • • • It was fortunate the gaping hole in the back yard of the Richard Buddings at Bancroft caused no casualties and has been properly cared for. An old well caved in leaving a hole 12 by eight fop and the wonder is that it had with stood the walking of the family over it the night before. Whei Mr. Dudding opened the back door the following morning, he was astonished to see the greal depression. Lucky the youngsters hadn't fallen in, too. The Dud- dings are son-in-law and daughter of Mr and Mrs Hugo Johnson. • • * During n brief vacancy of the Henry Johannsen apartment, Linda Nelson, a niece, thought it would be a fine lime to have a slumber party. Clara Schnakenberg, Patricia Erpelding and Diane Hanselman joined Linda and a good time was had by all-except "Hank" who \uis locked in the screened porch! Really, I'd hardly consider him at that "dangerous age." :f. * it Mr and Mrs Walter Plumb and sons, Pomona, Calif., have been nere visiting the parents, Mr ant! Mrs Fred Plumb, whom they had not seen in seven years. Mrs Plumb will be remembered as Marilyn Tuttle, daughter of the Homer Tuttles. who also live in Pomona now. I'd liked to have seen Marilyn — 1 never knew her, husband. • * * Edna Ferguson was here to see me Sept. 4. We had a good visit, but it wasn't half long enough. We have known each there since the grades, graduated together and oh the parties and bobsled rides we have shared! Camping at Irvington, breakfasts in the woods, dinner parties — Oh. time, why won't you turn backward? Sept. 2 started out a fine day for the Fred Geigels and Henry Johannsens. They were dinner guests of Mr and Mrs Russell Conk and Mr and Mrs 'diaries LaBarre at the Okobo.jis and all was going well. The chicken was "going" very well, fast, in fact, when Fred got a bone in his throat. A trip to a doctor at Spirit Lake who advisee! him to get home to his own doctor. A session with him and he told him to eat and drink — and be as merry as possible, I suppose, and wait till morning to see what developed. A happy ending — The bone loosened, passed on and Fred is none the worse for the disagreeable experience. * * # Yep — "Most auto accidents occur on Saturday and Sunday. It's a great life if you don't weekend." * * • Sure 'nuf — "The art of conversation isn't lost —- it's hidden behind the TV set." I don't know which I felt more ike at bod time Sept. 4 a strip easer or a circus clown, when began peeling off garments I had put on against the unseason- tbly cold day—bath robe, sweater. Iress — etc.! We had half the ummer we should and I'm all or a warming up period. Aren't you ? Lewis Marshall. Gene Minard and Don Asa flew to Canada over the Labor Day weekend for some fishing. Lewis said bad storms interfered with their plans and their catch was not worthy of mention. « * * Mrs John Schimmel had a caller the other day. Matt Butler, Los Angeles, who told her he was born on the farm just south of the Good Samaritan Home, then known as the Ambrose Call home and the farm site is now occupied by Mr and Mrs .lohn Gisch. The Gisches have owned the farm foi some time. Mrs Schimmel calle( to find out from me whether knew him as he would be aboul my age. I am sorry I never knew of the family. • * * Margaret Reid is not a pugilist nor a football player, but she can sympathize with those who suffer broken noses. She fell not long ago in the Tom Reid driveway on her way home after dark from seeing Ida Nickerson, a bedfast neighbor. When she looked at herself in the looking glass, her noses was lilted upward between her eyebrows and she compared her looks with a pug-nosed bulldog. She manipulated the cartilage in place, a doctor did the rest and she now is quite recovered, except for a slight hump which she will always have. Atop this she has been having troubles with a left forefinger injured a year ago in a food chopper. It had healed and been O.K. till recently when a different infection attacked the digit and for a time she isn't doing any sewing or work that requires use of that finger. Jerry Oslrum's wife Arlenc has a sister Elaine Bratland, Bode, ivho taught at Hopkins, Minn., last year. She applied for overseas work and was accepted to teach at Frankfurt, Germany in the U.S. personnel school. She made the journey there via plane. tag, "Mine, mine!" We Is the youngest child of Al Colcman Clarion, and when school began and the brothers and sisters were gone, little Larry was considerably disturbed. His aunt Errna Deim went to Clarion and brought him back to share his care with his grandmother, Celia Deal. Just to amuse the child, Celia dressed him In the little girl attire she Larry Coleman a few years from now will have quite a different opinion of being "dolled up" in girls clothing. Right now at two years he thinks it is a lot of fun and liked his garb so well ne refused to take a nap without the feminine garb and kept say- LL For high-yielding dependable PIONEER 0 $eed corn, see' YOUR LOCAL PIONEER SALESMAN: R.

It met with his instant approval. But it will be a different story a few years hence. Mrs Deal took him home Sept. 9 and remained several days to look after the family. There is a sad side to the story. His mother died when he was a very small baby.

He's in charge of our body and paint shop and his long years of experience in this work stand him in good stead. He personally does all of the spray painting and all work passing out of this department passes his rigid inspection. Clarence Hunt Clarence has always been connected with garage work. He has been with us for five years but had 13 years of previous repair work behind him. He's our head man when it comes to heavy motor work such as complete overhauls, clutch work and he specializes in automatic transmissions— something mighty important to drivers today. Leo Gardner He's our senior man in years of experience with Percival's — he joined us in 1947. Leo has exclusive control of the wheel work on all cars entering our doors. He's a specialist in front end alignment and wheel balancing. His years of experience plus our top-rated Bear Wheel Alignmert equipment guarantee you an A-l job. Wendell Feaster Wendell is our newcomer — he joined the Percival staff Monday of this week — but he's no newcomer to many Algona drivers. Wendell has worked in garage work the past 15 years. He's our "tune- up" man. No matter what the make or year of your car. He will soon attend special training schools to learn more about Chrysler Corp. automobiles. Jim Edgington In point of years, Jim is a comparative newcomer to Percival's but he's caught on fast in his 12 months here. He works with Duane Riley in the body shop and is also in charge of our radiator department. Incidentally, we are equipped to do any kind of radiator work — repairs, recoring, etc. Jim's a mighty important fellow around here. Clyde Lloyd Although he has been with us for just 18 months, Clyde likewise has a good many years of experience behind him. He operated a service station for several years and has worked in other similar type of places the past 13 years. He is our brake specialist and in addition, does almost all of our lubrication work. John Straycr One of the most important men in any business is the handyman — and in the few short weeks John has been with us, he had adapted himself to this type of work. A "jack-of-all-trades", John is available to any department that needs him. You'll find him helping out in whichever department is overloaded on that particular day. Garry Davis Garry has been with us for a year and he works, along with Clarence, in general motor work, transmission overhaul, clutch repairs, etc. Since his interest tends to mechanical things, Garry has caught on fast with us. A FEW WORDS ABOUT PERCIVAL We have pictured the entire force of nine men in this advertisement to acquaint you with the full and complete service department offered by Percival Motors in Algona. Each man is a specialist in his own field and each takes pride in th« work he turns out. Which means they want satisfied customers. . Percivals will soon have its 23rd new car showing in Algona. Founded back in 1940 at the location now occupied by the Council Oak Store the firm moved to its new building on South Phillips street in 1946 and has been located here ever since. During this span of time, we have handled Chrysler products exclusively and now feel with our complete line of Dodge, Dart and Chrysler cars, we can offer our customers a top line in all price ranges. But more important here at Percival's, we have always prided ourself on customer satisfaction. We have strived down through the years to gain and keep our customers by giving them top flight service work at reasonable prices With the staff we have pictured here, we feel we can continue to do so in the days ahead. CLAYTON PERCIVAL, Owner (iuil Gail has spent most of his life in some sort of automotive work and for the past three years, has been in charge of the parts department and overall service manager for our shop. Gail spent several years previously with us and has gained val- able experience in wholesale auto parts work and later in service station ownership here in Algona.
