About 250 guests witnessed the ceremony. Mrs. Leonard Leeck played nuptial music preceding the ceremony and accompanied Mr. Wally Christ. Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of Schiffle embroidered organza over white taffeta. The bodice featured a close fitting basque, a scooped neckline, and long sleeves ending in a point at the wrist. The skirt was a floor length sheath and the train, beginning at the waist, was chapel length. The bride's veil of imported silk bridal illusion was attached to a pearl and crystal crown set on a caplet of lace petals. She carried a bouquet of white roses and stephanotis. Her only jewelry, a gift of the groom, was a necklace with a silver flower pendant centered with a diamond. Miss Brenda Brandt served her sister as maid of honor, and Miss Ardith Eden was the bridesmaid. Mr. Bill Grimes served as best man, and John Brandt, brother of the bride, served as grooms- man. Philip Nielsen, Ray Drefke, James Rode and Dale Bartelt served as ushers. Grandparents attending were Mr. and Mrs. Chris Brandt and Rev. and Mrs. Win. Baddeley of Ft. Dodge.

Mrs. Mack Wise writes poetry as a hobby for her own enjoyment but her latest effort might be used as the town inntto. There is no doubt that (lie thought is sincere as it was written l«fore school started and left the town in long, quiet days. BOYS Some think boys are naughty and bad, Some look on them with a frown, But wouldn't our town be awful sad, If there weren't any boys around ? If we couldn't hear their noisy shout, We'd miss them so, and wonder where They all had gone, and weren't about, The silence, would be hard to bear. Dirty faced, and rude they say, Our little Joe, Dave, Mike and Ken, But these little boys we love today, Will be our tomorrow's men. By Metta Wise - o - Now that the kids are back in school and no longer crowding the vacation spots, some of the older citizens have started taking vacations. Mr. and Mrs. August Kirschbaum accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Ollie Kirschbaum of Mason City, spent a few days at the lakes. The fishing wouldn't have been too bad if the rain would just have let up for a while. Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Phillips are leaving for a Phillips family reunion that is really done in style. It is being held at the Pathfinder Hotel at Fremont, Nebraska, with dinner reservations and visiting in the reserved ballroom. After this affair the Phillips are heading on west to Colorado to spend a week with Elmer's brother. Mary, Charles and Francis McMahon from Sexton, John McMahon from Corwith, Mrs. Ambrose Licktelg of Algona and Frank Guerdette all traveled to Bowbell, North Dakota, to attend the funeral of a 93-year old uncle. The armed services are beginning to make themselves known in this area as some of our former "little boys" are suddenly old enough to "Join up." A regular visitor here at the McMahon home, Mickey Hennlgan of Dallas, Texas, is now completing his basic training in the Air Corps at San Antonio. The service brings mixed emotions at the Everett Steven home. Their son-in-law and daughter were headed home after completing a hitch in the army on the same day their son Rick left to take his physical to enter the service, Mr. and Mrs.Kiess are now at home at Charles City and happy to have a quiet home in the country after army camp living. Kenyon Gabrielson also made the trip for an army physical and plans to leave for the service when the crops are all in this fall, Of course the way the crop situation looks after a couple of weeks of rain, Kenny's commanding officer may have a long wait. The first message in some time from Mrs. Vinnie Laymon's sister Relda in Indiana brought bad news. She has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital at last word. She spent several weeks here with Mrs. Laymonlast year. Frequent weekend visitors, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Opheim, are not coming all the way from Sioux City. After all the delay in getting moved in last spring's snows they have now been transferred to Fairmont, Minn., trailer and all. This latest move makes it very handy for little Douglas to see his grandma more often. Added to the new working force from this area is Kathy Pruisman, daughter of the Frank Pruismans. An Algona Hi senior, she is now employed as a secretary by George Sefrit, the Vocational Agriculture instructor. Since Miss Pruis- man plans to enter business school after her graduation this should be a fine start on her future. SUNFLOWER The Frank KueWs, Waukee, like to grow sunflowers in their garden to attract the birds. One tins summer grew to a height of 15 feet! FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Ydwr Hobby - And Your Neighbor'*) By Dick Palmar A visit to Hyde Park, New York, is most rewarding not only lie- cause of the beautiful Hudson river country, particularly along the river road, but also because of the two major attractions, the Vanderbilt mansion and the home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. West Point is also just down the road a piece. -fl- it was Frederick Vanderbilt, a grandson of the Commodore, who directed the building of what is termed one of the finest examples of Italian Renaissance architecture in the United States. Started in 1895, this spring and autumn home was completed in 1898 for a mere $660,000, not including any of the furnishings. While not up to the elegance of The Breakers at Newport, it is nevertheless sufficiently roomy to provide presumably adequate quarters on the unopened third floor for 17 maids, plus 5 additional guest rooms. I wonder if they ever had any problem determining which of the guests would share with the hired help ? Antique lovers and students of period furniture will find much to linger over. Mrs. Vanderbilt's room was an exact reproduction of Louis XV's Queen, complete with a railing around the bed. Perhaps Mrs. V. was taking no chances with wandering, potted guests. Mr. V. was equally comforable, tho unprotected. The grounds are free but there is a small charge for the mansion. It is well worth it. - o - Entrance fees are also charged for the FDR home and library, separate buildings, but the grounds and grave site are free. We didn't enter either of the two buildings, but happened to arrive during a memorial service for the late President, conducted by Jewish young people, from a nearby summer camp. The service, a combination of short tributes- ahdgroUp spng,$as quite moving, I: am glad that his many contributions to our country have been made so meaningful to these young students, none»of whom would have been yet born at the time of his passing. Hyde Park is, of course, much less pretentious than the Vanderbilt home. It is the more typical of the well-to-do, established families of the Hudson River area. - o - The opening days of school conflicted with the antique fair at Fort Dodge. With exhibits in many of the store windows and exhibits and sales on the sidewalk area, it must have been a very interesting day. - o - I found the new commemorative stamp for St. Augustine colorful but somewhat confusing. For some reason, I find myself wanting to place it on its side. The design is hazy. The main interest in this stamp will be the three- color plates with the resultant three plate numbers, a first for plate collectors. Some combinations may turn out to be scarce. At any rate, obtaining all the possible numbers and positions will occupy considerable time. Despite all precautions, it appears that at least one pane got out with the yellow color plate missing. If this is now in collector hands, 1 suspect that an announcement will be withheld until the issue is off sale to prevent a possible reprint of the error. H. E. Harris and Co., incidentally, was successful in a court fight to prevent Canal Zone postal authorities from reprinting a missing bridge error. Collectors gen- erally cheered this decision which may be under appeal. I really don't see the legal basis for this decision, however, no matter how attractive it may be for the collecting fraternity. - o - The Numismatic Scrapbook is the elite of the coin publications and you would normally expect reliability from a full page advertiser. I recently sent an order to an eastern dealer name cheerfully given upon request - for 5 large size dollar bills in Extra Fine to About Uncirculated condition. The price was $25 which is an attractive one for that currency in that condition. The result was so bad that I was more amused than angered after the initial shock. One note, the top one, did qualify. The others ranged in condition from poor to very good, none were in the fine class even. One specimen had a tear over an inch long. Another was useful if you were interested in ground-in dirt. The entire question of grading is becoming increasingly serious. I order at times from a dealer in Florida whose material whether coin or currency is always at least one grade less than advertised so I figure his price on the lesser grade and order if it still is favorable. Many collectors, including this writer, are becoming more and more reluctant to take a chance thru the mail with a new firm. - o This should concern all dealers who seek to establish new contacts. Sometimes there is a reluctance to try advertisers in the more general classified papers, such as The Collectors News. This writer has found the small classified advertiser in this publication more reliable than the full page dealers in the straight coin press.

Prices are average to below normal Council Minute* The City Council met Sept. 15, 1965 with Mayor Finn and the following named council members: Muckey, Andreasen, Cook, Miller andPeirce.

The hearing date for the sale would be Oct. 13, 1965. Ken Meyer came before the council concerning license for bowling alley. This was tabled for further investigation. Letter from the local square dance club requesting permission to hold dances on the city par king lot was read and tabled. Mayor announced that a county meeting of city officials will be held at Hurt, la., Wed. Sept. 22, 1965 at T:30 p. m. Letter from Kermit Setchell, concerning sanitary sewer assessment on Lot 7, Blk 10, O. P., was read to the council. This lot was assessed as if a house was located on the spot and should have been assessed as a vacant lot. Mr. Setchell was asking for a refund which was allowed. Motion moved and seconded the meeting adjourn. D. A. Smith, City Clerk APPROPRIATING RESOLUTION No. 1133 September 15, 1965 GENERAL Finn, Salary 112.50 Smith, Salary 220.24 Sands, Salary 118.78 la.
