WESLEY By Mrs. Viola Studef What will Iowa's Interstate Highway cost you? Modern Asphalt highways cost less to build. With slate highways*, turnpikes and super-highways coast to coast, modern Asphalt has proved to be the most economical construction. Take the New Jersey Turnpike in the picture, for,example. New Jersey saved $5'/i 'million with modern Asphalt—the difference between rigid slab pavement and Asphalt based on actual competitive bids. Both pavc^ merits designed to carry the same load. How about quality? The New Jersey Turnpike is the most traveled road 1 in the world—26 million vehicles a year—the traffic anticipated for 1970. Yet it's holding up, providing the same smooth, safe riding as the year it was built. The best construction value for Iowa's Interstate Highway is modern Asphalt. •In I9SS. 95% of «fl new ttite hlgfawn coo- Miuction wu modern Aipbttt.

Aigona Group Plans Picnic For Feb., '58 By Burfell Mason and Buddy Mason Long Beach, Calif., Aug. 17 — This Saturday afternoon, in Recreation Park, Long Beach held its Iowa State Picnic. The weather held warm to very hot through the day as though to make up for the unseasonable weather that upset the midwinter picnic schedule in Los Angeles. Attendance was somewhat lighter than usual, but the spirit that goes to make a successful picnic gathering was NOT in short supply. If anything ,the guests seemed livelier and more friendly than ever. NOTES OF SERVICE MEN One important bit of news came to out attention.

Neitzel of Whittemore, graduated from recruit training Aug. 17, at the Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, 111. The graduation exercises, marking the end of nine weeks of "boot camp", included a full dress parade and review before military officials and civilian dignitaries. In nine weeks of instruction, the "raw recruit" is developed into a Navy Bluejacket, ready for duty with the fleet. This is not a new departure in picnic procedure. About six years ago, "Camp" Otterson, ex-Duluth resident, decided that large State Picnics were fine but residents of any one area were difficult to locate. They'd sign their own city or county register, then mingle with the thousands of picnic guests. Thus, no one could locate old friends or neighbors unless they stayed at the point of registry and missed the general program at the bandstand. Otterson organized a Duluth Day Picnic that grew from an initial attendance of around 100 guests to its present attendance of from four to eight thousand. When we covered this picnic for the Herbert F. Palmer Publications of DUluth, this year, we estimated the crowd to, be close to ten thousand strong. As word of the exclusive ALGONA PICNIC gets around, this gathering will grow in size as did th Duluth Day Picnic. We'll try t get information.if available, o the site chosen in ample time fo "THE ALGONA-UPPER DE MOINES" to notify Algonans planning a trip to the Coast thi winter. ' Old Timers Show Up Arriving at Recreation Park today, we were greeted by Erni Taylor, one of the old-time regu lars. If Ernie had not been on deck, we wouldn't be certain that we were covering the rigb event. Ernie informed us tha another regular guest,Otto C. El bert, had to work today. From his tone, we gathered that work ing on a picnic day was some thing very close to deliberat desertion, Ernie wa« with u when we talked to Jtfike groess ler of Bancroft. When Mike told us he had worked for his brother Alphonse at Droessler's Mea Market, in Bancroft, as a mea cutter, Ernie spoke up, "Why, I remember your brother. In fac he was in my class when 3 taught school in '97 and '98!' Mike Drossier is now employee in Civil Service at El Toro Calif. Mr and Mrs Bill Heller. (She is the former Bernice Balegman] were greeting old friends. Many will remember when Bill was working in the Treasurer's Office at the Aigona Courthouse. Kenneth Meyer, of Aigona, is now working for Pacific Air Motive Corp. Ken is the son of Mr and Mrs W. H. Meyer of Ai- gona. He is living with Harold and Marian Berkeland, former Fenton residents, in Whittier. Harold and Marian Berkeland brought baby Julie (3) and their two splendid young sons, Joel (10) and Kent (7), to the picnic. Joel and Kent could pose for any artist looking for the typical American boy. In fact they do just that! Besides posing for commercial photographers they have been doing considerable work in telefilms. Joel just finished working in "Fury" starring Peter Graves and Bobby Diamond. Kent recently worked with David Niven in Niven's new teleseries. Both have work- ed extensively for television films. Harold is still employed by tha Athletic Division of the Whittier Union High School District. Old Time We«ley Resident Harry C. Corey, of Wesley, Iowa, told us that he attended Wesley school when it could boast only two rooms. When he left school, it had grown in size to a structure of 4 rooms. Harold, is now engaged in the brokerage business in Long Beach. The affable Genrich family greeted us, and as Usual had a number of newsy items.

A very manly and 'polite youngster hovered near during our talks with oldsters. At long last we had a brief period when no one was granting us an interview. The young man stepped up, introduced himself and asked if we could spare a moment. The manly bearing and considerate courtesy got us! This personable youngster could have the next half-hour, if he so desired. We're never too busy to encourage a young gentleman whose manner reflects good train- ng. At the request of Master John Jest, The Bests have just re- best regards to his neighbors and )laymates, the 'Sigsbee children. We are also privileged to extend lis very best wishes to some old" friends of ours that, long go, we dubbed "The Waller Pose k " We have been informed hat these former playmates are xceptionally "nice kids!"
