Hlfftori$4 sooie%r I Editor's Motet Many thanks to Dave Shumway of Algona for his appreciated contribution printed below. Dave holds a bachelor of science degree from Drake, and will graduate with a law degree from the State University of Iowa next February (if all goes welt!) * * » Nobody asked me, but. .. People who say that they understand human nature seldom even understand themselves. Raising children seems to me to be not a difficult task, but an im- leta 29e* jttomeg tSTABLIJHID HAS AteONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, AU6US? IS, 195? 3 SECTIONS - 20 PAGtS VOL. 04 - NO. 33 Lakota Youth Has Champ Fair Beef Winners Of Early Blue Ribbons Are Announced possible one. People who- like their steaks well done are uncivilized. Dorothy Kilgallen is suffering from delusions of mediocrity. The greatest folly of my misspent youth was taking high school algebra. The best motion picture I've ever seen was Miracle in Milan. Anyone who says he has the solution to the farm problem is a liar. Eric Severcid is the smoothest news commentator around. If you think Miss Monitor has a sexy voice, you're right. The guy who edits Sec Taylor's column earns his dough. * * * People who think they know their rights eventually furnish lawyers with most of their business. The importance of high school and college commencement exercises is greatly exaggerated. I read that someone says that Kim Novak looks like the girl next door. I'm living at the wrong address. I wish teenagers who are real gone would go somewhere else, Sydney Harris is the best columnist I've ever read. « • * * The statement that atom and hydrogen bomb tests produce no adverse genetic effects may be the epitaph of humanity. It is becoming increasingly clear that" if ever a book needed reading today, it is Veblen's Theory of* the Leisure Class. The best actor I've ever seen was Charlie Chaplin. I generally prefer children to adults, and there are . frequent intervals when I like dogs better than either. Women 'are shrewder judges of character (than men. '' * » • : ( Adlai Stevenson is an exciting speaker when he merely clears his throat. If the' rack and the screw, the iron maiden, and mustard gas can be outlawed, why can't TV? At least 95% of the people 5 who go to church attend for the wrong reason. Grandma Moses' primary distinction is her longevity, Chicago Cub fans must be masochists. Billy Graham is a dynamic personality who has nothing of importance to say. * * .» Time magazine dispenses more baloney than Swift and Co. Dave Garroway is so relaxed that he makes me nervous. Most people who like sailboats are nice. People who belong to the Book of the Month Club are merely substituting someone else's poor taste for their own. Willie Mays is the best baseball player today, and Ted Williams is the greatest hitter since Babe Ruth, * * * Some of the dullest people I've known were Phi Beta Kappas. My heart goes out to those graduating high school seniors who, like myself, were never able to do anything more than create a white precipitate in chemistry lab. Life is a good magazine, especially if you can't read. There is more' evil in cities It is interesting to note that the person who set up the trust fund for local high school students and praised Algona as a fine community in which to live last resided here 56 years ago. James Dean was a second-rate Brando. George Kenrian knows more about diplomacy than the entire state department. Auto races are a piercing bore. The best salad dressing is Italian garlic. I'd rather read Truman Capote than William Faulkner, whatever that might mean. The best fishermen don't have to go north to make good catches Dolls who chew gum in public shouldn't. Capital punishment is not a deterrent to crime. Hot banana bread and cold milk is the best snack I've ever tasted- Algona high school had the best coaching staff in the state when Bob King and Tony Guzowski were here. For anyone who wishes to explore more fully the meaning o! the word mediocre, I would recommend a viewing of the motion picture "Giant." If you didn't like this column, ont Q! thousands.

Susan Lowe is on vacation, too, so her favorite recipes are missing, but there are a host ot other timely articles. A Wesley truck driver, Julius Monson, 83, entered a plea o! guilty to aggravated burglary and was sentenced to ten, years in the state penitentiary at Fori Madison in district court at Storm Lake Monday afternoon. The convicted man was taken to Storm Lake earlier in the day by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst and County Attorney Gordon Winkel Monson was arrested at 4:30 a.m. Sunday by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, Deputy Sheriff Don Wood and Marshal HUbert of Wesley east of Algona. The arrest came after an early morning of terror for Monson's ex-wife, Fern, who received a divorce decree Friday, the Monson's daughter, Judy, 10, and a sister of the ex-Monson, Roxie Schaffer, 15. As authorities pie9ed the story together, Monson visited a Wesley tavern and an Algona cafe for several hours Saturday night. He admitted to the sheriff he had consumed some alcoholic liquors, but Lindhorst said Monson. was not intoxicated ' when picked up later. Between 3 and 3:15 a.m. Sunday he pried a window open at the home of his former wife after pulling telephone wire's leading to the house loose so no calls could be made. He then entered the house and, according to Miss Schaffer, began choking her. She screamed and the other two, Monson's ex-wife and daughter, were arpused. All were sleeping in the same room with Miss Schaffer. Monson then got a butcher knife from a kitchen cupboard and made a lunge at his ex-wife, cutting her on. the left wrist. The door was then barricaded and Monson left. A neighbor heard the screams and arrived after Mons.on had driven away. Lindhorst and Wood were called and they rushed at once to the scene. It was when they were returning to Algona to look up the license number of Monson's car at the courthouse that they met his car headed toward Wesley. Monson waived preliminary hearing in Justice C. H. Ost- winkle's court Monday morning and was taken to Storm Lake. He was originally charged with feloniously breaking and entering and assault with intent to commit murder in Ostwinkle's court. After sentencing, Monson was returned to Algona and placed in 'Jail. He will be taken to the penitentiary some time this week.
