Vin.-No. 7. MANITOWOC. WISCONSIN October 13,1989 GO-ZW Being a recording of those things that go zipping as folks talk. And a few vagrant thoughts. Well the Cincinnati Reds would have been all right if they hadn't collected a case of jitters in the last couple of inninsrs. We are glad that's all over. � �� - ' |> Fritz Kuhn says he loves the United States but we have a hunch we could get along without his kind of love. � o- Mr. Hitler, for a man who has such an exalted opinion of his own greatness, fails to inipress by his orotory. He talks too long to say too little. -0- Sheboygan English: "It went too fast ouc." "I'll never catch you up," 0 We have always wanted to hear those "Unheard of prices." ' �� 'O � � � We all miss opportunities and bowlers do it by picking cherries. Our team lost two out of three last week which takes us back to our regular ^rait- o Is there a law against giving the individual scores of the lady bowlers or is that just a "house rule?" -0- A two million dollar contract for the local shipyards would be a great Christmas gift for the whole town, ^ eh what? �--0- October is setting a number of records but we have heard nothing about that "brown October ale." -.-o-- That budget will be official next Monday night and we are wondering ^vhether they will make the $40,000 expectation official also. o We'll give you a tip. The department heads will have to do a lot of , reducing if they are going to get inside of those budgets because they are extremely snug. There are countries that are bigger than these United States but none better. Our state legislature "worked" much longer and did less than previous legislatures, so there. -o � Maybe that ordinance banning all sidewalk displays is another step in the right direction. ^ Our guess is that perhaps there ' ^vere no free passes for the wrestling matches and so-^well you saw the answer. We don't know yet what to do about Thanksgiving and certainly we don't want to celebrate two weeks in succession, even if we could afford it. o There were a few football upsets last Saturday, according to the experts. President "Kosenfeld" has suddenly become President Roosevelt over in <^rmany, indicating that he may be pjl^jome use to thein so they want to remove the impression they have created that he belongs to the "hated class." Yep, there was a horse show Sunday. Gosh, as a town, we are getting "P in the social world. Juiit what does a black out test actually prove? And how? Only nine at the public budget hearing indicates what what, if anything? The city aldermen ought to be a good nucleus for the organization of an Optimist club in this town. And you don't need a pencil and paper to figure that one out. How about those storm windows? -0- Right now right here wte need a blackout of the three P's, propaganda, profiteering and politics. -o-- Over here if we don't like the "air raids" we turn off the radio. o � We hear that a local man is only drinking "discharge water" now. There could be that kind too. A budget, it would appear, is something to sort of salve the taxpayers and an audit doesn't mean a thing until the auditors are also allowed to check the legality of all expenditures. As it is they confinn what you already know, that the money has been spent. o The radio announcer insists tthat it is the "Sta-toot" book. ilili Community Fi Contribution Helps Build Better Cities The wrestling season gets under way at thte Capitol theatre next Tuesday evening, Oct 17, with a three |^atchTill~8taTncaTd~that should-give he fans a lot of entertainment and brings in new talent. The card opens with Winnett W. Watson, London, against Pete Vukovich, Milwaukee Losing a good cook often amounts to losing a meal ticket. -0- We understand that over at Two Rivers they get two daily papers for the price of one. How come? They are scouting duck hunters with airplanes, so what? -0- Here is a lot of sound advice in short punchy sentences: Know your opportunity. Practice what you preach. Out of debt out of danger. United we stand, divided we fall. Hew to the line, let the chips fall where they may. The noblest motive is the public's good. The path of duty is the path of safety. That action is best which procures the greatest happiness for the greatest number. It is better to seek advice at the beginning than at the end. Let all the deeds thou aimst at be thy country. A single fact is worth a ship load of argument. Too many cooks spoil the broth. A promise delayed is justice deferred. Make not fish of one and flesh of another. Promise little and do much. Oaks may fall when reeds brave the storm. Examine well the counsels that favor your desires. Learn the luxury of doing good. Don't make two bites of a cherry. Better do it than wish it done. Debts turn free men to slaves. It is not the hen than cackles most that lays the most eggs nor the rooster that crows the loudest that wins the fight. A new broom sweeps clean, providing the holder handles it discretly vrith an eye to the thingfs to be swept out. o The man who has nothing to do needs no advice as to how to do it. -0- "Nabs Skunk But Fails to Figure Out Next Move," said a news headline. Well bet he moved, however. And so another week is done. Well be back agaiii aesft wmIc, we hope, we hope. With the 1940 goal set at $17,500 Kenneth C. Healy, Warren Cooper and Adolph Stangel, co-chairman of the Manitowoc Community Fund say: "We urge you to invest in the work to teach our youngsters honest Americanism - prevent juvenile delinquency - provide expert nursing and take care of hundreds of persons who require temporary material aid each year." Folders on the campaign, which have been placed in the mails and addressed to all persons who made contributions of more than $3 last year, cite that the Fund does help in the building of a better city in which to live, work and play. Six pertinent reasons are listed for supporting the fund campaign: 1. Because it is the duty and privilege of all citizens to help their less fortunate neighbors maintain adequate welfare services, and character building activities. 2. Because the Community Fund system has been found to be the most efficient and economical way to collect funds, and you are only asked to give once for all, but enough for all instead of many times as formerly. 3. Because the money you give in this manner is carefully distributed according to actual agency needs, and statements of expenditures are carefully checked. Monthly and annual reports are required of all agencies. 4. Because your help is essential in combating social life and delinquency, and it is your opportunity to cooperate in a community wide effort in which all races and religions are striving for one main objective, the relief of suffering and the develop-men o fcitizenship. 5. Because you know that the 1940 Campaign Goal is $17,500. 6. Because you know that Manitowoc has always answered the call That it is your purpose and this is your opportunity to prove that you, as a Good American, are a Good Neighbor. In addition, the co-chairman points out, you benefit, if you live in this city, through the fact that the fund agencies shield you from streanns of distressed people seeking help at your door. The fund truly does improve living conditions The agencies included are the Southside Ladies Aid Manitowoc Apostolate, Northside Relief Society, Boy Scouts, Health Center, Visiting Nurse Service and an emergency relief fund. The administrative and campaign costs for the entire community fund averaged abo\it $800. Charles F." Eberhardt, 61, wel known local real estate dealer and former livestock buyer and shipper died suddenly at his home, 1011 South 36th St., Monday evening. He was stricken shortly after returning home for supper. Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at the Firs Lutheran church, 8th and State streets with interment at Evergreen. Survivors are the widow, two daughters, two brothers and three sisters. for a one fall, 30 minute time limit. The fans know both of^ them. The semi windup is between* Dale Haddock, Birmingham and Frankie demons, Flagstaff, both new here, so far as we know. The windup of the evening will be the usual best two out of three between Jack Curtis, Oklahoma, and Johann Bromberg of Hamburg and both are rated as tough customers. The bell sounds at 8:30. Now it is to be up to the county board to decide whether court house employes are to celebrate Thanksgiving on Nov. 23 or on the 80th. The board meets for the fall session on Nov. 14th and usually completes its work by Thanksgiving. If the Nov. 23rd, or the national date, is accepted the board will have to recess for the holiday. There will be a regular meeting of the Civic Council at the city hall next Wednesday evening. The question of the purchase of an iron lung for the local hospital has again been taken up by the local Legion post and all angles of tho issue are being investigated. The issue was revived when tv/o Manitowoc patients were taken to Sheboygan where they are receiving treatment in iron lungs. The immediate outlay would be between $1,000 and $1,500. Robert, 13 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Mai-tin Schroedor of this city, a victim of infantile paralysis, was placed in the iron lung at the Sheboygan hospital last Friday and his condition had improved to such aii extent Monday that removal to a regular hospital bed was permitted. The state typographical convention at Fond du Lac dodged the issue of taking sides in the fight between the CIO and the AF of L. Bertram Day, Kenosha, was reelected president and August L. Guia, Milwaukee, secretary-treasurer. Twenty-two youths of the county passed the CCC examinations and departed for the camp near Iron River, Mjch., last week. They will be stationed at Camp Alvin throughout the winter and will be in the forestry semce. Walter Luebke, R. 2, Harold Appleby, Edw. Wacek, Gladwin Kreshek and Milton Specht, all of Two Rivers, suffered injuries in a collision of the Appleby auto with the farm truck of Luebke near Bonde's on Highway 42 last Friday morning. Both truck and car were badly wrecked. Robert Bruechart, 13, 1502 Clark street, suffered a concussion of the right side of his head, several broken ribs and abrasions when his bicycle figured in a collision with a car driven by Ruth Kortas, 1006 South 18th St., at 18th and Washington streets last Thursday. Written and physical tests for applicants for positions in the fire and police departments will be given October 18th and 19th. The physical tests are given first. Health Officers SafSituationHere Is Under Control With no new cases of infantile paralysis reported since Monday and a total of only five for the^entif� city health authorithss Wednesday announced that they believed the situation here was well in hand. It was stated that the school sessions would continue as a present. Dr. E.. Wall, city health officer, and R.G. Strong, city Physician, conferred with Dr. Koehler at Milwaukee Tuesday and he advised the continuation of the school session permits of a better check on the children and is actually a safety first measure. The school buildings havo been fumigated and all of the other precautions taken. The nurses are check-very closely on the grades from which the six cases were originated. Both doctors expres.sied the opinion that the condition her was not alarming and that cold weather would further reduce the danger of Spread of the trouble. Unless there are unforseen developments the Kiwanis club will go through with its plans for the annual 4-H Girls and Boys cub gathered a great deal of interest. The fight fans will get their first home dish in many moons^ tonight at the Terrace Gardens in an amateur card that schedules 22 rounds in six bouts. Both the windup and the semi-windup will go five rounds. Frankie Guenther, LaCrosse, 152, and Hoxey Lamers, Appleton, 147 will furnish the windup with Bobby Mason, LaCrosse, 146, and Carlton Puerst, Appleton, 147, in he semi windup. It has the earmarks of a dandy card. The Community Chest Fund board endorsed a suggestion by the Lions club and County Dental society that the fund provide dental care for needy children under 16 who have not been otherwise provided for. This will be done only if there is a surplus of funds at the close of the fund drive which is under way now. Thieves stole a large supply of tools from the Kasper Constroction company in four burglaries over the weekend. Tools were taken from the company warehouse at 16th and Men-asha avenue; from a city pumping project at the foot of S. 19th St. and from the Sears Roebuck job .in Commercial street. This city can expect no state aid in the construction of the paving to complete the trunk route on Franklin street according to word received from the state highway department. The stretch from 2l8t to 26th streets on Franklin is on the paving program for next year. The New York Yankees made it four in a row from the Cincinnati Reds in the world's series Sunday when they took the final gatne by a score of 7 to 4 in ten innings after the Reds had the game cinched but threw it away with errors. The city series at Chicago which the Sox won, four to three games, complet�d| the baseball season. From here in' until Jan. 1 it will be football. Miss Kathryn Bennett was elected head of the Manitowoc County Teachers association with Gaylord Aplin as vice president and C. W. Meisnest, secretary-treasurer holding over. Ralph Novak, 35, a former resident of Keedsville, had his face crushed under a 400 pound oil drum at a Milwaukee oil station while unloading the drum from a truck. Both cheek bones, the skull just above the eyes and the roof of his mouth were fractured and he will be a patient at the Deaconess hospital for six weeks or more. Under a new state law Manitowoc will be unable to license new locations for taverns for a number of years. The city now has 84 taverns and the new law reduces the ratio to one for every 500 of population which would entitle Manitowoc to 46. However tlie old locations can continue to be re-licensed. The new law became effective on August 27. More members of the Manitowoc County Fish and Game Protective association wilt be named as deputy game warden and all areas in the county will be better patrolled during the pheasant season to prevent violations. The pheasant season opens tomorrow. A series of home burglaries at Sheboygan have the police worried. 7..' �'V.
