75 Years Ago This Week
75 Years Ago This Week began March 1, 1938 - my mother and father were preparing to get married later in the month.
Over in The KINNICK Project blog, we had another week of daily entries from Mom's - that is Eileen Kinnick's - diary.
9 eggs… and reading love letters
Butchering meat for their new locker box
Took Cream to town… we see it in the ledger book… Neat!
She "told Lite Plant how much I wanted."
From the local newspaper in Coon Rapids, Iowa, the Coon Rapids Enterprise, 75 Years Ago:
April 1, 1938:
The Progressive ticket headed by Paul alex for mayor, won a decisive victory in Monday’s
election electing their candidate for mayor, assessor and three councilmen. The “city dads” for the next two years will be Paul O. Alex, mayor; P.H. Kinnick, treasurer; Ralph C. Bowman, assessor; Councilmen George Textor, Harry Cadden, Dave Davis, John Tigges, and W.A. Kretzinger. Of the old council, the mayor and three council members were not candidates for re-election. Mayor Whitnell had served five consecutive terms, 10 years; John Miller had been a council member 12 years; Meade Steele had served for four years; Russell Dixon was completing the term of Leo Watrous who resigned during his fifth term to take a position with
the municipal light plant. The new council will take office Monday evening.
My comment: Had to show the Coon Rapids town council election results, since we showed the two tickets earlier.
