2-Algona (la.) Upper 0*s Motnet Thursday, April 22, 1965 Algona's Seller And Notre Dame Mates The young, rugged fellow second from the left in the front row of the above photo should look familiar to all football fans in this area. It's Paul Seller, now a right tackle candidate on the Notre Dame University varsity football squad, a resident of rural Algona who starred during his high school career for Coach Beanie Cooper's Garrigan Golden Dears. Paul Is completing his sophomore year at Notre Dame, where he is a student on a football scholarship, which was presented to him when he graduated here in 19G3. Seller saw limited action last fall as a sophomore with Notre Dame's once beaten nearly national champs. His teammates in the photo are, left to right, front row, Don Gmitter, right end; Seiler; Dick Arrington, right guard; George Goeddeke, center, Pete Duranko, left guard; Bob Meeker, left tackle; and Capt. Phil Sheridan, left end. In back, left to right, Nick Eddy, right halfback; Bob Merkle, fullback; Sandy Bonvechio, quarterback; and Bill Wolski, left halfback. Coach Ara Parseghian, whose first year at Notre Dame proved highly successful in 1964, is shown at the right. ' FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palm«r Mrs. Lucille Anderzen sends the latest Issue of Coinage and a report of a robbery Involving her employer. For some reason, the thug gave notice of his intent via the phone, so police provided' a stakeout. While posing as a coin seller, the would-be thief pulled a gun, but the boss resisted with a knife. Tho severely injured by blows on the head, he inflicted mortal wounds on the thief. An accomplice escaped and is the subject of an intense search. A Sioux City dealer tells me that coin shops are often the target for the monetary value of the coins rather than the collecting value. Indeed, some have been apprehended as a result of passing unusual coins or currency. - o - Coinage has an excellent article on paper currency prior to Federal issued starting in 1863. There are numerous illustrations of this interesting field. A new catalog has been published on North American bank notes by Grover Criswell, which 1 will review in a later column. I think this field is in for a boom, with all the additional information now being made available. Coinage is a bi-monthly. 1 am impressed by the quality of the articles and excellent illustrations. It is, I think, superior to Coins, the magazine put out by Numismatic. News. Other articles include encased postage stamps of the world and the topical, bearded men on coins. There is also a profit study on Indian cents. - o - The Forest City show was oolite well attended Saturday, but Sunday seemed below average. Dealer comments indicate that business was spotty, with customers more in a selling or trading mood. There was the usual intertable activity as the professionals evened out their stock and attempted to obtain matertal for the home collectors. One dealer's customers will find his shop with a new look as he ended up with all of my decorative frames dealing with U. S. themes via currency and stamps. L. L. Owen and Merle Colebeck are friendly competitors not only in coin selling, but in personal collection of $3 bills. Both have excellent showings and have an agreement that if either sells, the other has first option. In Iowa, after golf beer's the one., for good taste, good fun After a hard-played 18 holes it's good to settle down on a soft chair in the club house and add up the score with friends. What better lime for the drink that scores with almost every golfer—cool, thirst-quenching beer? Yes, beer's great lo relax with, i>reat for refreshment, great for taste. So whatever your sport — boating or baseball—swimming or tennis —relax afterwards with the xestful taste of beer. UNITED STATES BREWERS ASSOCIATION, INC. f O 00* l!>9. OSCtOLA. IUAA I think more currency frames will be appearing soon in shops and exhibits. Several dealers got the address for the engravings offered by the Bureau of Printing and Mrs. Philip Budd, well known in Iowa Numismatic circles, bought two sets of the Overrun Nations stamps for a projected display of their currency. I have made extensive use of these attractive flag stamps. - o - The exhibits, as usual, were all first class, Including several previous show winners. The Weisman Medal collection won the IN A Best of Show award, while a trophy presented by the Minnesota organization went to the very fine Canadian exhibit that won the INA award at Jefferson. Interesting items included a coin and currency display built around 6 Queens of this centruy, the Tonga gold coin set attractively mounted in white plastic, and Don Jenson's splendid material including the 1856 Flying Eagle cent, several choice specimens of encased postage, and the full set of $3 gold. Just on a hunch, I took along some postal item s and found that the cardboard proofs attracted considerable attention. In tact, I traded on sight many of them to my bourse neighbor for some currency, which means that I will have to be bidding again at auction. - o This was the weekend of the terrible tragedy at Allison and the special personal impact that comes from the loss of an able and respected student whose personality and character contributed so much to her class, her teachers and the school.Technol- ogy has given us the power of mobility, but for this gift, we have paid a dreadful price.

Make Strong Communities "Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord." —- Psalms 31:24 It is not always easy to be strong. Temptation comes to us in many forms. The best way, the right way, is not always the easiest and, because we are human, we will most often take the "easiest way out." If we believe in God, if we practice Christianity, we become aware of God's power, and we find our own true source of courage and strength. We find it in faith, in the realization that God is always with us. If we have the right kind of faith and belief in God, we do not expect instant miracles in response to a prayer, but we know there is a God who understands and will give us the strength we need.
