After a brief wedding trip to eastern Iowa the couple Is at home In Algona, where the bride- groom is employed t»y Midwest Printing & Lithographing Co., of Algona. The bride is a SentraJ graduate and the bridegroom graduated from Swea City high. FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Y«vr Hobby - And Ytwr Ntlfhbdr'i) By Dick Palmtr Jane Angus, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Angus of Bancroft, became the bride of Terry Dixon, son of Mr. and Mrs. 0. T. Dixon, also of Bancroft, in a ceremony performed Oct. 1, at 7:30 p. m. In the First Baptist church of Bancroft. Rev. A. W. Nelson officiated in the double ring ceremony in the presence of 150 guests. Lee Dixon was best man, and Judy Angus was the maid of honor. Donald Larsen and Jerry Angus were ushers. Mrs; Ralph Weber was organist, and Harold Angus, soloist. The bride's gown was white peau de sole over a foundation of taffeta and pellon, floor length, with a detachable chapel train and close fitting bodice. Pearl trimmed embroidered alencorn motif adorned the front of the bodice. The gown had a scalloped sabrina neckline, and sleeves ending with traditional points at wrist. The con- trolled chapel train was topped with a bow at the waistline. A fingertip veil fell from a pearl- ized crown. A reception followed in the church parlors. Mrs. Roy Guy of Renwick cut the cake, assisted by Mrs. Blaine Drown of Curlew, both aunts of the bride. Coffee was poured by the bride's grandmother, Mrs. Claude Whitehill of Algona. Hosts and hostesses were Mr. and Mrs. and Mrs. Lawrence Dittmer, Lone Rock, and kitchen workers were Mesdames Laurence Dolf, Orland Peterson, Vern Logan and Serf Bruck- housen, also Francis Packard, Marjorie Johnson and Nancy Nelson. • •—->•'<•• —• •. i- - «. Gifts were in charge of Mrs. Harold Angus, Mrs. Lee Dixon, Mrs. James Sloan and Joleen Mueller. Gift bearers were Lorraine Drown and Donna Larson. Cynthia Whitehill had charge the guest book and Mary Dixon, A new report has cast additional light on the excitingly different business methods used by the Post Office Department. It seems that due to cost of Increases, stamped envelopes will now cost one cent more In small lot purchases. The Philatelic Sales Unit of the Washington Post Office - for $25 customers only, no common folk, if you please - had some offerings of the new regular envelopes issued last January. The report stated that to simplify accounting the old stocks were destroyed. This, of course, reduces to ash the production costs of those stocks. My apparently complex suggestion would have been to simply charge 1 cent more for existing stocks and hence recover the costs. Or is it considered good business to destroy exlsiting inventories whenever there is a cost Increase ? Me- thlnks that the Post Office Department has an accounting system that is something less than sensible. - o - Within the past three weeks, I have seen 8 relatively new $10 bills on the Burt National Bank signed by Cashier Thompson and President Buell. It is usually difficult to find notes on smaller banks and quite unusual to have so many turn up at about the same time. These are the old large size National Currency Notes of the 1921 series. Judging from the numbers, the bank must have issued a lot of currency about this time. National Currency notes are not as popular as the Silver Certificate and Legal Tender issues but these bills would still bring from $20 to $25 and would respond quickly to .any significant increase in demand. . - o - Forbes magazine had a one page review of the past speculation fever in modern coins. Some 15% of the coin dealers have gone out of business and another 15% are expected to give up the ghost. In most cases, these "dealers" were sheer speculators with no real base in coins or currency of established value. The Ohio corporation that went public with a recent stock offering lost money during the first year but is expected to survive since it does have a prestige inventory. Losses In uncircu- lated rolls and bags plus some proof sets have ranged up to 75% of the high value point. Many series have since steadied but some are still in danger. I personally feel that the silver dollar Inventories are in danger. They are now being extensively advertised and the hoards must be huge and expensive to maintain. Circulated common dates would have a very grim profit future with the uncirculated selling from $1.75 to $2 as singles and fo'r less If bought by the roll. Kennedy halves seem to receive considerable support from abroad, particularly Canada. I note many buy and trade ads from there. The halve shortage is quite evident In the concession money received at the junior football stand. The take contains about 50% less In halves and a corresponding increase In the number of quarters. - o - I have received the 1966 edition of Scott's volume n. This stamp bible Is now wider and thinner, a distinct improvement in handling. I haven't had much to survey as yet, but a quick glance shows a continuing upward trend in Western Europe, particularly West Germany, France and Italy. Stamp collecting is still the number one hobby in Europe and prosperity has brought a vigorous demand which draws from supplies here. Europeans, however, place considerable emphasis on mint, unhinged with the slightest mark bringing a price reduction of around 20%. - o - One of my trading cor respondents is a Russian. We have exchanged silver crowns and currency. Apparently he can obtain monies from the Russian influenced areas but has difficulty obtaining coins from the West via direct purchase. I Imagine he has a trading permit. Some of his covers have the colorful pictorial stamps so common cancelled to order and so scarce in a genuine used condition. At least this indicates that the issues are available for the intended purpose. What amazes me Is the natural quality of his English. It not only is accurate but blends formal and slang together in such a manner that you would think him to be a product of our own society. His last letter contained the phrase "get a bang out of". If I were to use the phrase, most of my correspondents would ask me what it meant. We confine our remarks strictly to hobby interests. I rather imagine that most of his mail is opened. So far, everything sent both ways has got thru. - o Don't forget to set aside Oct. 30-31 for the annual coin show and bourse at Clarion. There are several other Iowa events this month, but Clarion is the closest and it always has been well worth the drive. Next year the State Convention will be at Fort Dodge. thuriday, Oct. 14, 1965 A j gena (j a .) Upp«r uw'MolnM- Feeder'!

What makes a car a car is styling, performance, ride and handling. Only when they're all tuned together is the car a Buick. Like this 1966 Riviera Gran Sport. You know how well your car's engine runs after a tuneup? Buick tuning has the same effect on the whole car. Not just the engine. The ivhole Buick. Everything blends with everything else. Styling. Performance. Ride. Handling. All tuned to work together in harmony. That's ivhat the tuned car is. A Buick. Only Buick is the tuned car. (And every Buick is the tuned car.) What the tuned car is is a masterful blending of all the things that make a great car greater. The Riviera for 1966 is the tuned car. It features six- passenger seating, disappearing headlights, a silently efficient new ventila- ting system and the kind of roadworthiness you'd expect in a car that costs twice as much. (You can get a Riviera for your desk as well as your garage. Send SI in check or money order to Riviera, P.O. Box 68, Troy, Mich., for an accurate 1/25 scale model '66 Riviera.) But Riviera's not the only tuned car. LeSabre is, too. And Wildcat. Electra 225. Special. Skylark. Sportwagon. See them all at your Buick dealer's. The tuned car may not mean much to you now. But then you haven't had a chance to drive one yet. Wouldn't you really rattier have 0 Mulfk? -There's an authorized Buick dealer near you. See his W Double-Checked used cars, too.
