6-Algona (!e.) Upper DM Molns* Thursday, Oetobtr 3T, 1957 A Blindfolded Driver? Only Hypnotist Could Dr. Morton Greene If you happen to be on State street in Algona shortly before noon on Tuesday. Nov. 12, you'll witness an unusual sight. A man will drive a car down State street at that time — completely blindfolded! The man will be Dr. Morton Greene, world-known hypnotist, and he'll be piloting a brand-new Edsel convertible, courtesy of Schultz Bros., Algona Edsel dealer. The unusual "drive" will preceed the appearance of Dr. Greene in three hypnotic performances on Nov. 12, at the high school auditorium. The Algona Lions Club" is sponsoring Dr. Greene's appearance here, and proceeds will go for benefit of Boy and Girl Scouts. Miles Sloniker and Russ Guster are cochairmen for the event, and tickets may be purchased from any Boy or Girl Scout. Alfred Schultz says he doesn't know just who will take care of the bill if Dr. Greene's blind-fold drive results in any fender- denting ,but the hypnotist is said to drive expertly — without seeing!

Swea City Loses Best Optimist Swea City lost its favorite optimist, when Ed Hammond moved away. He has gone to make his home with his daughter, Mrs Robert Sanborn at Kensington. Ed has walked with two crutches since World War I, but that didn't darken his outlook on life. He was a picture of unfailing cheer, and many a time has been instrurm.'ntal in bucking up others without any physical handicaps, and making their burdens lighter. "If Ed can laugh and joke, what have I got to beef about?" is the way many a Swea City person looked at it. The community wishes Ed well in his new home. Ed will also spend part time with a niece, Mrs Mervin Kelly, near Bertha. 2 Embezzlement Charges Filed Two preliminary hearings on embezzlement, with Roy "Barney" Powell, Spencer, and Carl Hoernke, Burt, defendants, were continued at request of defendants in Justice C.
