..oaf, Mereh reveals that their world while gi»-,vin^ ;:;/ .>... <(Uito ;i bit less than the enchanted wonderland I had always thought it to be. The Fishor* seem to tx? more successful in planning a more normal life for their children, but I imagine a Dionne could \varn the Fishers about many pit/alls. FROM THE REPORTS AND PICTURES In the UDM, we gather that Algona is having quite a winter. It sounds even worse than the winter of 1962 which was the last one we spent In Iowa. Now, 1 hate to make enemies by gloating, but 1 Just want to mention that today it was 80 degrees In Florida and tonight it is almost cool enough for a sweater. There's a big, round, full moon, the citrus trees are perfuming the air with their blossoms, I picked a perfect gardenia today, and the current crop of tomatoes have little green ones on the bushes. Quite a change from our lousy weather of last week-end when it rained and got down Into the low fifties! - o - WEATHER, LIKE MOST THINGS, Is relative. You can't fully appreciate lovely weather when you have day after day of It. So, when I want to get a charge out of the Florida climate I go to an Iowa snowstorm - but only in memory which seems an Ideal distance to keep from them. I tend to dwell on how pretty the soft, white fluffy stuff is and omit the more sordid details such as digging out and slipping around on the Ice. And 1 remember some times when we were snowbound that turned out to be quite interesting. - o - NATURALLY, 1 GOT TO PLAYING that old game of picking Interesting people with which to be snowbound, If 1 could choose anybody in the world. First of all, I would pick the six members of my immediate family. It sometimes seems to me that it would take something as unusual as a blizzard in Florida to get us all together again. If by some quirk of fate it could happen we'd make the family In Whittier's "Snowbound" seem like a convention of orphans! And I can think of some combinations of celebrities who would make Interesting companions while being snowbound. - o - I WONDER HOW IT WOULD BE to be snowbound with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain and Phyllis Dlller of Hollywood. I don't know what Queen Elizabeth calls her husband, Prince Phillip In private, but In public Phyllis Diller calls her mate, "Fang". If those two would kick off their shots' and get down to some girl-talk, I imagine a discussion of their husbands could be most enlightening! - o - FOR AN AVIATION, PAST AND PRESENT, discussion while being snowbound, a couple of guys I'd like to Invite would be Scott Carpenter and Wrong Way Corrlgan. Both have made history In their own ways and both are still around. I saw Wrong Way on TV Just recently when he told of his flight during the thirties when he started out for California and ended up In Ireland. Carpenter I heard about recently irom a cuose mend whose husband is an engineer on space projects. They were being taken on a flight from Cape Kennedy to Austin, Texas, to look for a new home. Helen thought the pilot of the small plane looked familiar. Afterward she found out it was Scott Carpenter! - o - ANOTHER SNOWBOUND CONVERSATION THAT might prove Interesting could be one between Zsa Zsa and Billy Graham. You'll have to admit that Zsa Zsa zigs where she is supposed to zag and where she's supposed to, Zsa Zsa really zags. Billy on the other hand, while quite personable himself, seems to be more Interested in the spiritual things. Both have quite a way with words and a dialogue between them could prove most stimulating. - o - I'D LIKE TO EAVESDROP on a conversation between one of the remaining four Dionne Quintuplets and Mrs. Harold Fisher of Aberdeen, S. Dakota, mother of the currently famous quints. A book has recently come out about the Dionnes which ALBERT SCHWEITZER, ONE OF THE greatest men in the world is a man of diversified talents. He is famous in several Holds - organist, composer, author, medical doctor, humanitarian, and philospher. If lie could possibly take time out from his "reverence for life" program, wouldn't he be a wonderful snow-lwtmd companion? And just for good measufe, lets throw in another man with varied interests - Bobby Baker. - o - LAST, AND PROBABLY LEAST, I'd like to get together three gals who might have quite a bit In common. They are all about the same age, all ex-Iowans, and all happily married for quite a long time. Two of them are spectacularly successful in their chosen field and the other, while quite a way down the ladder in both fame and fortune, has had her moments of satisfaction. All are columnists - the twin sisters, Abby Van Buren and Ann Landers - and Gracel - o - WE MISSED THIS WEEK'S ALGONA visitors. Nell Larson sent me a card from Clearwater that she, Ted, Dick Godfredson and Ernie and May Detlman would call on us Friday. I had to leave the house at 5 minutes to 3 to go babysitting and according to the note Nell left, they were here at 3 p.m. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF MARCH 21 through 27, birthdays include David Shumway, Kristin Hoeckel, Warren Morris, Audrey Duncan, Jo Ellen Pittman, Harold Sundet, Howard Miller, William Miller, Russ Buchanan, Jane Cole, Leonna Macumber, Bob Watson, Mona O'Conner, Everett Anderson, Fred Kent, Sr., David Hutchlns, Marcla Mowers, Bill Nugent, Paul Mc- Brlde, Jr., Mace Hershberger, Denny Waller, Connie Hall Wycoff, Dean Taylor, Cathy Chrischilles, Burton Harmes, Bless Rusk, Roger Johnson, Timothy Sliey, David Agena, Tim Claude, Mrs. Irene Spurgeon, Lamont Wellendorf, and Sherry Lloyd.

GRACE Homemakers At AHS Holding Big Contest The Algona chapter of the Future Homemakers of America have organized a contest to determine which classes can do the most public service projects. Two teame have been fcrmprt: the freshmen-juniors vs. the sophomores-seniors. Such projects as furnishing the teachers' lounge with cookies and coffee for a month, cleaning but the study hall desks and cleaning the trophy cases, have already been initiated at the high school. Both groups are also striving for public projects. The winners, who will be feted at a banquet prepared by the losers, will be Judged by high school teachers on the amount of publicity for each competing team's work. Price Support On Oats Set At 60c A Bushel Price support rate for 1965- crop oats in Kossuth county will be 60$ per bushel. Richard A. Anderson, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County. Committee, has announced. County Support rates are established on the basis of No. 3 grade oats. Participation In the 1965 feed grain program is not a condition of eligibility for price support on oats. Premiums and discounts which are applied for grade and quality to determine individual producers' support rates for 1965- crop oats are unchanged from the 1964 program. The discount for badly stained or materially weathered No. 4 oats is 7 cents per bushel; on the factor of test weight, it is 3 cents per bushel. The discount for garlicky oats is 3 cents per bushel. Premiums are 1 cent per bushel for Grade No. 2 or better, 1 cent for heavy test weight, and 2 cents for extra heavy test weight. Price Support for 1965-crop oats will be carried out through loans and purchases on farm- and warehouse-stored grain. The Chairman explained that under operating procedures for loans on farm-stored grain, adopted for the first time for 1964 crops, farmers should be able to obtain their loans more promptly. Producers may avoid a service charge in connection with 1965- crop loans by redeeming their crops instead of delivering them to the Commodity Credit Corporation as payment of the loans. 4 Corner Club Has Election Of Officers The Four Corner Mother's and Daughters club met at Irene Holdren's with Betty Fisher as co- hostess on March 11.
