6-Afflorta (la.) Upp«f DM Mdtfttf thurttfay, January 6, 1966 by Evelyn Dec. 23, continuing with messages which will Interest you a box of Nell McCall's famous fudge and a card telling me she left Dec . 19 for Atlantic with her daughter Catherine and family' and will spend the holidays with them. Nell has been having some oral surgery done at Omaha and I believe is to have a little more done. * * * With Marg Dahl's gift was a card wishing she could wrap Gene Barry up with her present. Well, I wisn so, too, out his wife might object, and Gene probably wouldn't be too'happy about it. * * * Thanks to the W. S. C. S. women for the plate of fruit and candy and the accompanying card. And to my paper boy for his card. I've forgotten his first name but he is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Pederson and is a fine lad. * * * I was highly-flattered at the address "To Algona's Leading Journalist, Miss Evelyn Cady" and the original verse he sent was much enjoyed. Thank you,' Harold Hutchins. * * * Emotions swept over me when I opened the enclosure from Hugh Black. A picture of his three lovely children, Louise, Jimmy and Carolyn. It was Jimmie who answered the phone when I called to give my thanks. For a lad of six he is a fine phone conversationalist and I am sure he will deliver my thanks in a grown up manner to his father. * * * Eva Deim and Mary Bieser never forget to send greetings, so thank you again for your card. Nona and Max Miller are also good "rememberers," so thank you, too. * * * A letter from my cousin Julia Cady of Mason City contained much family news and this important paragraph - "I don't plan to go out west this year unless I hear that Jerry (her Dr. son in California) has to go to Viet Nam." A letter from Jerry's wife Jeanne gave no hint that he might be sent, so I hope he will continue to be in San Diego where he is an orthopedist at the naval hospital. She said he is very busy at the hospital, and her activities and the boys' sound like a merry-go-round. There was also a picture of their home very attractive. * * * Gladys Barker, El Merage, Ariz., sent a letter with her Currier and Ives card - and she starts out saying she still LA1MDB7VNK Farm LOANS 5% % Interest For a loan to buy land, pay debts, finance improvements or for other farm or family needs, come in and see us.

She spent most of the summer in Cloquet with a widowed daughter who has a family of five sons and five daughters, so she had plenty of cooking to do. Fortunately, they are easily pleased with good old fashioned stews, etc., she added. * * * Mabel Livingston wrote from Apache Junction, near Phoenix, "It's beginning to look like Christmas here in the desert. When I look out my living room window I see old Superstition Mountain Just covered with snow. Will be home for Christmas, but plan to spend New Years at Wilmington, calif, with my brother. Don't plan to take in the Rose Parade except via T.V." Wish you were her Mabel so we could stop at Van's for french fried onions I Remember ? * * * The card from Yarda Nelson and husband, Dr. Lyle Ellis of Hartford, Conn., had nothing to say about heading south, but they probably will ere long as is their custom. * * * An interesting letter from Lucille Crose Andersen assured me her friends were not too involved in the recent heavy rains and land slides. One bit of news was saddening. Charles Boyle recently died. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. Mark Boyle, residents at Whittemore years ago and there was an older son, George, a very handsome little lad whom Lucille used to parade with down "Main street" when he and his parents came to visit the Charles Lathrop and Frank Crose families. The well known George Boyle was his grandfather. I'll be thank- Ing you for your Christmas gifts in a more personal manner very soon Lucille. * * * The card from Fern Foster filled me with nostalgia - a couple in a one horse drawn cutter, and Fern felt it too for she said, "Here is the cutter we have been looking for. Would I like to take a ride in one of these I The young folk now don't know what fun it was." True, Fern and I can remember the rides Ada Stacy used to take mother and me on. I can re•member she and mother picked me up at school when I was In second grade to take me to grand- ' ma and grandpa Hendersons to ••join the rest of the family. They had just returned from California after a visit of several months with uncle Walt and aunt Stell and we were anxious to hear all about them. I can remember the trunk full of goodies grandpa brought back - oranges, nuts, hot tamales Land and Machinery AUCTION Complete closing out farm auction of land and equipment on the farm 6 miles east of Bancroft on blacktop and Vi mile south, or 6'/2 miles south of Lakota SATURDAY MORNING, JAN. 8 AX A LA i • ... _ ' 9:45 A.M.

AUCTIONEERS - Quinn and Leek Miss Bierstedt Of Algona Is Engaged To Wed VIRGEAN BffiRSTEDT Mrs. Lucinda Bierstedt of Algona announces the engagement of her daughter, Virgean, to Darwin Leek, son of Mr. and Mrs. Art Leek, also of Algona. Virgean is a graduate of Sentral high school and is a senior majoring in elementary education at Iowa State University in Ames. Darwin graduated from Lu- Verne high school and attended Iowa State University for two years. He is presently employed at Electronic Specialties. and even some wine, Years later, I saw a "glorified" cutter painted white and used for a flower planter in a yard out in Indiana or Ohio. Almost an insult I * * * I couldn't imagine who Mrs. W. R. Whitehead of Mason City was. It turns out to be Gwen Jones Tierney, who lived neighbor to me when her mother, Maude Jones was employed at the Goeders store. She was widowed some time ago but had two children, Craig and Marilyn by Bernard Tierney. He met a tragic death by drowning one Sunday morning years ago. I can't imagine Gwen the grandmother of ten, but each of her children have five apiece. She says a class reunion is being planned in July and she hopes to attend. I sure will be glad to see her. * * * Cards from Connie Jergenson of Aurora, Colo., and her daughter Becky of Costa Mesa, Calif., contained almost identical news' - important news. The entire family was together in California for Christmas, Becky and her husband, Janet and her husband, who live in towns close together, Phil, Kent, and Richard. What a happy time. * * * Lela Peck Stewart Mendenhall's Christmas will not be so happy as she recently lost her husband, but she has Carrie Crose (Mrs. Harvey Moore) for company this year from amenta! as well as a physical aspect as Harvey died just three weeks before Dara. Glenn Crose, brother of Carrie, died a few years ago, the sister Lydia Dally just recently and Harold is in California and Garnie in Rochester. * * * Meredith Raney Holzhammer wrote such an interesting letter. Last January, she and her husband, Father Bob, flew to Mexico City for nine days to visit three Episcopal missions and do some sight-seeing. Six weeks in July and August they were in Sewanee, Tenn. at the University of the South. Bob is now within two credits of a master's in Theology, plus a thesis. Other items of interest were about the children, Dave and Tina. * * * Neva Patterson Potter never fails to write to me, but I am sorry to learn that she is on a strict diet for diabetes and is also having some eye trouble. * * * From the William Cooks came a card with a beautiful nativity scene, from Roy Waterhouse of Los Angeles, a card saying he was in the hospital last year at Christmas and then came a box with assorted jams and the cutest cart to hold them. You are a good "picker outer," Roy. Thank you so much, * * * Then Lawrence Welk sent his customary calendar and his picture, from Lee and Bess Hopkins and Marie Hawcott a card and hankie, a letter card from Mary Jo Myers, daughter of the late Elizabeth Rowe, a dear friend, and from the Raymond Henrys of Indianapolis, Ind., a card saying the younger daughter Kathy and husband Alan are in school in Missouri, the. older daughter Patty and husband Lynn were discharged from the Peace Corps last October. Patty's allergy got so bad in Hawaii they couldn't go on to Malaysia so they are both back teaching in Peoria, HI. Betty, their mother, adds, "I think my March spinal fusion is going to work this time. I am allowed out of my brace in the morning and have gained weight." The Henry family will be well remembered, * * * Myrta West of Perry says she is recovering nicely from surgery last September. Evelyn McDougall, former Algonan now of Mason City, spent Christmas, at Minneapolis with her son Bob and family. Bob has had pneumonia and has been confined at home for several weeks, but is now improved. A letter from Maggie Pannkuk says Clarence is still not very well. In fact, was in the Fairmont hospital at the time of writing and had not been home long from Rochester. She enclosed a couple of pictures of Ada Simmons, a relative of the late Frank Simmons. Ada will be well remembered here as she taught piano to a large class and is continuing. Ada always wore her hair long and plain so it doesn't seem like Ada to me to see short hair, curled. * * * And coming to the end of the list are greetings from the Josh Blossoms, Mrs. Earl Sheppard, Florence Furst, members of my WSCS circle, Zaida Nugent, Des Moines. Minnie Sterling, who mentioned our famous toiled dinners, my r/msin Frances Cady Zfichappei of Austin, Tex,, ana a card and note from another cousin, Jean Cady Lawson of Mason city who gave me a good verbal descriptiftn of Mark and little Julia's reactions to Christmas and Santa Claus. * * * Now I won't go into the gift list. Suffice to say, "I am loaded" and to those whom i have not said a personal thanks via phone or when the gift was brought, 1 will be sending letters. Thanks so much to each of you, a blessed Christmas and a very Happy New Year, plus my love. * * * I missed the names of one group of carolers, and the Methodist group which came Sunday unfortunately had timed it inopportunely. The men had gone to the dining room for supper, my door was half-closed, so I don't know whom to credit, Wednesday evening, Mrs. Ernie Hutchison's Girl Scouts sang for us and distributed gifts. Thank you Mrs. H. and girls. * * * The "White Christmas" got here - just enough to cover the en <?#? to disturb anvone. drab and give people a Job of sweeping walks.
