Two new directors were also elected: Donnle Moore and Jay Graham. A pot luck dinner was served.

While (lie aim of snrh trips to foreign lands (and of similar trips to the United States hyper- sons from other lands) is to further international understanding - the group from Iowa which jetted to and from South America, also discussed all facets of agriculture at the many ranches visited in tho five countries. With only one exception, according to Keith and Frankl, the 41 men felt welcome everywhere they went. The exception was a sidewalk Ixiok salesman who apparently aimed some oral barbs at the visitors (although they weren't sure, because they couldn't understand a word he said). Of the five countries visited, they seemed to enjoy Argentina the least - and that was in part due to a "wino" who served as their tour guide in that country, who apparently didn't do too good a job of making arrangements. It was this agent who offered the men a drink of hot Scotch whiskey (right from the bottle) while they were in the middle of a 7-hour bus ride, during which they had neither food or water. "That offer of a shot of Scotch didn't go over too well," said Mr. Frankl. Before leaving, the men were reminded to learn Portugese and Spanish words and phrases for hello, goodbye, thanks and Where's the bathroom - but seldom had to depend upon getting the message across themselves as they had separate guides in each country. While there were many interesting things to see and do on the trip, both .Mr. Keith and Mr. Frankl agree a visit to the Inca Indian ruins near Cusco, Peru, probably topped the list with them. They found it hard to conceive a city could be built from granite (with many of the individual stones weighing at least 4,000 pounds) without the use of tools - but that's exactly what the once-rich tribe did. Now, most of the area is poverty-stricken and'Indians exist there on an average income of $20 per year, scratching out gardens on slopes which are so steep they must crawl on their hands and knees to get to gardens. And many fields lie on terraces built by the Incas 1,000 years ago. They were amazed by Sao Paulo, Brazil, most rapidly growing city in South America (about 5,000 persons are added to the population eacli day), where "you can't look in any direction from any spot in the city without seeing all kinds of new skyscrapers being built." The men also said they learned "there is a new household completed there every 20 seconds". It was really summer south of the equator - with temperatures ranging from 100 to 106 several days, and Uruguay seemed to be the real hot spot. While in Lima, Peru, the men visited the United States ambassador, a former resident of Sioux City - and were honored at a cocktail party at the embassy. And near the end of their trip, they spent some time with the parents and sister of Salvador Souza, exchange student at Algona high school from Brazil who is spending the current school year in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Rex Taylor here. The Souzas sent some gifts for then- son home with the travelers. "We saw hardly any U. S. cars down there", said the men, "except in Rio where there are 500 Model A Fords still registered, Henry Kaiser's left Cream Social Mr. and Mrs. Don Pecoy, presidents of the Algona Promenaders Square Dance Club, announce the group will hold an ice cream social, with home-made ice cream Sunday, March 14, at Garrigan high school from 1 to 5 p.m. Larry Edwards, radiodisk jockey of Sioux City, will be the master of ceremonies. Callers will be area personnel. Attend Conclave Algona Chaml>er of Commerce Secretary, Bill Steele, Retail Bureau Chairman, Ted Chris- chilles, and Charles Sheakley attended the annual retail meeting of the Northwest Iowa Chamber Executives at Storm Lake, Thursday, Case Postponed GERALD FHANKL KYLE KEITH Willys vehicles and many foreign cars are manufactured there - and Volkswagens seem _tn be the popular favorite. One reason is the huge amount of more VW's built in Sao Paulo than in Germany." They learned the rate of interest is very high in South American countries, ranging from 43 percent (in advance) for six months to five and even 15 percent per month. And there is a terrific difference in the value of money from country to country. The men had a great opportunity to study agriculture along the way - and besides, got a chance to go from a rugged Iowa winter to a quite pleasant South American summer I (UDM Polaroid Photos) High School Chorus Concert Here March 7 The Algona high school mixed chorus with the Lyric Girls Chorus will present a concert of serious music on Sunday, Mar. 7. The concert will be given in the First Presbyterian church of Algona at 3:00 p. m. The Presbyterian church has excellent accoustics for choral groups and makes a fitting setting for the sacred music which the choruses will perform. This is the second time that the Presbyterian church board has consented to holding the high school chorus concert in their church; the 1963 sacred concert was also presented there. The high school mixed chorus is one of six high school choruses to take part in a choral workshop in Iowa City on March 6. Clear Lake, Lewis Central of Council Bluffs, West DesMoines, Bettendorf and Muscatine will participate as well as the University of Iowa. Each school will present a half-hour concert. Guest critic for the festival will be Robert Holliday of Hamline University. The- concerts and critique will be held in the Iowa Memorial Union lounge. Ex-Algona Lt. Featured In AF Interview An interview with 1st. Lt. Harold M. Amfahr, son of Matt Amfahr, Algona, and graduate of St. Cecelia's Academy here, was featured in a recent issue of the Mesa Missileer. At the time, the Lt. had returned to Camp Cooke, Calif, as a student from his permanent station at Offutt AFB, Nebr. In the lengthy story, which also featured a photo of Harold, he compared Camp Cooke in 1965 with 1933 when he was stationed there as an army security guard at the deserted post, which is now reactivated. Lt. Amfahr has been in the service since February, 1954, when he joined the army. After discharge in 193G, he entered the University of Iowa under the Gl Bill and was commissioned upon graduation through the ROTC program. He entered the Air Force in 1962 and was assigned to SAC headquarters in the communications field. Science Shrinks Piles New Way Without Surgery Stops Itch—Relieves Pain He* York, N.
