From the Korner

By Marillyn Korth An overcast cool day here in the country. I loved it. Seemed more like Fall than Summer. I had a good eye appointment Monday. I didn’t get another shot and if all stays the same, I might not need one in December. Marlea went with me and we met Chardel there for lunch. We ate at Hickory Park and we all brought home “doggie bags”. Arf! Arf! Tuesday I took my car into State’s and got it serviced and then to Iowa Falls for errands. Wednesday I worked at cleaning my house as Jean was at the Spencer Fair selling toys for Amy. Boy, I have to think about everything I do and when to do it. Thursday was Donnie’s sale. A very nice day and a good crowd. He was very happy with the outcome, but it was a very stressful, emotional week for all of them. LuVerne and Juanita’s things were sold, too, so it made a rather hard week. I had a previous engagement so I wasn’t home for it. Bear, my dog, spent the whole day over there, but didn’t buy a thing. Ha! Sandy said he just came to keep an eye on things. She had received a sign years ago from someone in California and she didn’t think she would ever use it, but it came in handy Thursday. She put it out

child. I came home and tried to put the finishing touches on my meal. Jade and the boys stopped and Justin wanted something to eat on the good dishes. I will fix him a meal one day and let him use the good things. Sunday, I had Sunday dinner here after church. There were seven of us and all turned out well, except I forgot napkins. So here we are eating this fancy meal on my good china and crystal and using paper towels for napkins. Emily Post would have a spell. I am very tired but it was a good time and I will do it again. I remember that Sunday dinner was always a little special. Everyone could to go a friend or relatives house and be assured of getting a good meal. Guess I am trying to recreate those good times. But it will have to have a little time between. Ha! Roger Gaulke is doing some recuperation from a fall. He is in the Clarion Care Center for a while getting more tests and getting therapy. Boy! Us old mature folks must be careful. Take care, Roger! I am going to hit the hay early tonight so don’t call too early Monday morning, either. Ha! Have a good week. Till next week. MK

where her family could park. It said, “Sandy’s parking only! Violators will be towed”. Norma, Avon and I went to Ames to meet Marlys B. We go at least once a year to have lunch to celebrate our birthdays, which are in August, September and October. We really don’t need a reason, but that is the one for this year. We ate at “The Café” in Ames. A nice place with good food. Then to Emerhoffs big shoe sale, where I bought some shoes. I need a bigger size for my left foot. And we hit a couple of consignment shops. An excellent time was had by all. Friday I took Marlea to Ankeny for her doctor’s appointment and to Iowa Falls. Then home and tried to get everything lined up for my dinner Sunday. I don’t cook much for crowds anymore, well; I don’t cook much for anyone anymore! It takes a lot of work just to get everything in order, so I don’t forget something. By Friday evening, I am starting to feel the effects of too much running. Saturday, I attended funeral services for Norma’s niece, Sheryl, in Coulter. She died early in the week from a tragic trailer house fire. We extend our sympathies to Shirley Knudson, Norma’s sister and Bryce Knudson and family. She was young and I don’t know how you lose a

Clarion-Goldfield and Dows merger and election results

September 12, 1963-Tigers face Alden in season opener tonight By Rob Ahrens The start of the Dows High School 1963 football season will come this Friday night when the Tigers face Alden on the home field. It is expected that the local team will have an extra amount of enthusiasm because they are starting the season on home ground. With last year’s highly successful record behind them, plus a most favorable preview of what the Tigers can do this season, it is hoped that the local club will get the season off to a fast start and place Friday night’s opener in the win column. Coach LeRoy Carter announced the following probable starting lineup for tonight’s game. Center, Allen Osbourne; Guards. Steve Waggoner and Bill Ahrens; Tackles, Sarge Rhodes and Roger Jacobson; Ends, Tom Wesenberg and Jim Snyder; Quarterback, John Hanson; Halfbacks, Larry Madden and Corky Weber; Fullback, Randy Waggoner. Carter commented that following the weeks of practice, “The team doesn’t look too bad. With the loss of seven starters from last year’s squad, we have a problem of inexperience. There isn’t too much depth either”, the coach said. However, to this observer, and others who have seen the squad in practice sessions, the

team appears well rounded, and all members of the squad have a good spirit and strong desire to play and win. Friday night’s game with Alden will be an interesting contest. Attention is called to the change in game time effecting both home and away games. Kick-off will be at 7:30 p.m. this season as a result of a change made by all teams in the conference. Game schedule, pictures and assigned positions of this year’s players will be found in a special “Tiger Booster Section” in this week’s issue. The Tiger Booster Club is also operating with full enthusiasm. It is expected that the club will attend the game in full force Friday night. Saturday morning coffee sessions will start this week at the Green Door Cafe, and everyone is invited to become a member. Rob is compiling a look back at interesting happenings from old issues of the Dows Advocate on a weekly basis. If you have any ideas of the timing of interesting occurrences from years past that you would like to read about, contact Rob at robahrens@hotmail.com
