Big Ridiculous Days Event This Weekend Crazy, Man, Crazy I That might be described as the weekend theme song in Algona, Friday and Saturday, for the annual Ridiculous Days event in the business section. Business firms will run a sidewalk free-for-all, in appropriate costumes, many of them with some particular theme. A free breakfast at 7 a.m. at Finn's Bakery will start things off, although some sidewalk stores will open as early as 6 a.m. A circus calliope with 45 brass whistles will provide some of the music, and the Ridiculous Day Band will provide more. A Square Dance will be held on the street east of the Court House, sponsored by the Algona Prom- enaders, Friday evening. Business places not located in the immediate downtown area will have stalls in that area anyway faring Friday. Personal messages from local firms regarding the event will be found in this issue. The Ridiculous Band will again make its concert appearance at 8:00 p.m. Friday, July 30th in the downtown loop area of Algona. R. B. (Dick) Post will again assume his role of maestro of the baton. His astute musical leadership has* no peer. His every movement has a classical meaning. He will be wearing his uniform with many medals. In the "melody section" of the band, there will be Ted Herbst playing 1st cornet, and Phil Faaborg playing 1st clarinet. Both of these men are well-known musicians. Faab'org was formerly band instructor at Titonka and is now filling the same position at Rolfe High School. Herbst was also formerly a band instructor at Mallard. In the "harmony section" is the friendly postman, Jim Kelley, who plays 2nd cornet. Playing "countermelody" is Ray Cook on the tenor sax. Ray has a fine reputation also as an electrician, and can make sparks fly from his sax. In the "bass section" there is Lloyd (Curly) Pratt on the big bass horn that winds around his neck. Curly plays a "wicked" bass. He also plays the piano in a versatile manner, but this instrument doesn't lend itself to street parade work. In the "rhythm section" there is Russ Kelley who plays a (seldom seen) valve trombone. Russ is very proficient on the "middle valve down." He is credited with organizing and keeping the band's library of music. On the snare drum is jumping Jim Utt, who is most happy when the band plays polkas. Someone must play the bass drum, and the thumping job was forced on Bill Steele the 1st year the band was organized. Some of the band members suspect that Bill doesn't know anything about drums. The Ridiculous Band may recruit one or more other members before they make their yearly appearance. This is a terrific attraction and is worth motoring many miles to see and hear. This attraction will be free, at no cost to the general public. Dutch Honsbruch is general chairman of the Ridiculous Day committee, and Tom Rich, Ed Wolf and Chalmer Read are other members of the committee. Heat Tapers Off After Hitting 100 In Area A 100 degree recorded temperature at the KLGA weather station set a new high for the year here last Friday.
