BY RUSS WALLER John Hayes, Algona school board president, recently was in New York as a delegate to the national Kiwanis convention .. . he may have also taken in the World's Fair ... but perhaps the most unusual aspect of his trip was that he got a haircut in a shop near his hotel and was charged only one dollar ... whether this was due to his Kiwanis badge or some other factor he never did find out. A haircut for a dollar - in New York ? * * * Down in the neighborhood where the Bob Laings live, the kids in the area have a name for Bob . . . they call him "The Jolly Green Giant." * * * A LuVerne man, Earl Neal, spent an interesting two days in Canton, Mo. recently. He attended a U. S. convention for pencil collectors, and took along his own collection of some 4,000 pencils attractively displayed for a showing. * * * Andy Berens of Bancroft was down visiting in Algona last week and remarked that he was looking for an opening in the Job Corps . . . only problem seems to be, remarked Andy, that they aren't taking anybody who doesn't have an air-conditioned car. * * * Kossuth county once again led the entire state in crop production for 1964 with 19,645,000 bushels of corn and 4,540,000 bushels of soybeans. Boone county had the highest corn yield per acre and Scott county the top yield per acre in soybeans ... 93.3 bushels per acre for corn, and 34 bushels per acre for beans, to give you a comparison. * * * Is it our imagination or do w the Big Leaguers today have more aches, pains and ailments than they used to have? * * * Now that the City of Algona is studying the land-fill solution to a smelly, smoky dump problem, some of our distant readers are contributing their bit ... from the Denver Post, a clipped feature story about the Boulder, Colo, dump problem, where the wonderland of discarded trash and garbage has given way to a rendering-plant type of disposal system, a grinder driven by a 250-HP motor, which winds up with a compost . . . with no odors, fires, flies or rats. A Colorado Springs man invented the machine, and a private corporation under arrangements with the City of Boulder, handles the processing. The sacked compost is later sold. * * * HOT WEATHER NOTE; Ice cream has been enjoyed since the Roman times of Nero. The Emperor kept his slaves running for snow for confections from Rome to the nearest snowcapped mountains, One day a royal shipment of snow arrived in a state of slush and the angry emperor executed the general in charge. Air-conditioner repair men beware I * * * A snail's pace has finally been measured , , . a certain type of snail travels 23 inches an hour... our news source did not indicate whether or not this was a govern* ment study project, but it probably was. * * * Scouts tell us that Dick Post has pressed his uniform and shjned up his medals, preparatory to leading, his Ridiculous Days band in action here Friday. , . and don't miss it I * * *• Sometimes nature gets a little mixed up - like putting all the bones in the head and none in the back. * * * Famous Last Line - With you wearing Bermudas, why should I go downtown for Ridiculous Pays?
