o~Algona (la.) Upper Oei Molne* Tuesday, May 3, 1960 Tidbits by Evelyn Thank you, Howard Long Beach, Cal., for your nice words about rny column. It's rnusl6 to rny ears. What a wonderful trip your parents will , have, and Ed and Gen. are the kind Who will get the most from it. In case some have forgotten, I'll mention again that Mr and Mrs Genrich ate, on a three month tour of Europe, the Holy Land, Denmark and .Egypt. Quoting Howard, "It Was a great thrill for the grandsons and us to see them leave on a jet flight. They left Los Angeles International Airport at 9 a.m. Four and one-half hours later John and Helen Baird (Algonans formerly with the phone company) took them to lunch in New Yorkt This makes one wonder as to how much the earth can shrink." From New York they took the Queen Elizabeth to London. . * ' • * -Mrs Cora Cooper, resident here the past several months, was visited Wednesday by her cousin and husband, Mr and Mrs Herman Dahkke, Manson. * * * For the first lime in many years I missed Easter Sunday services. The weather man was most uncooperative; totally ignored my hat, coat and gloves which' I had laid out the night before in readiness. From my window I can see the stakes driven to line up the new ramp we are having built east along the porch. What a satisfaction it will be to be able to get out under my own power. It will be nice for the wheel chair patients too. They can be taken out easily on nice days. * • * - • I have frequently heard my aunt and uncle, Eva and Bert Goddard, mention (he Adolphson sisters of Bancroft. It was brought to my attention that Emma lives at Fort Dodge and ob- served her nintleth birthday Apr. 30. She keeps busy quilting — or rather piecing blocks— for friends and missionaries. She is a former teacher in the Bancroft schools. My informant, Mrs David Friets was a pupil of her's once and holds her in fond regard. ' * * « Mrs Friefs told me a little of her activities, or I' might be more correct in saying her husband's andj a son's. The former has recently completed sowing 20 acres of oats, a month later than customary, and the son is trying the sheep raising business for the first time. He is proud to announce a ewe has had twins. Following last year's trial at planting potatoes anr 1 covering with straw, they have done the same thing this year. It keeps the vines from drying out. she said.. There's a tip for you gardeners. The name Mrs Robert Spurgeon brings back memories of when she took guitar lessons of me.. She was an apt student and I wonder if she still plays. I read her name in the paper/ in connection with coming to the funeral services for her mother, Mrs Kate Skilling. * * * Robins are my favorite birds and I heard with interest of the pair who have set up "nest-keeping" under the ea.ves of the rest home and in a good place to be watched by perspns on our third floor. The viewers are getting much pleasure in watching the construction of the nest. I tossed some cotton out my window one day hoping it would be discovered and used to. soften a "home" but rain came along and cotton would be pretty soggy. Maybe they wouldn't have 'used it anyhow. One spring I was filling some sofa pillows and : went on the back porch to do it. Of course quite a few feathers got away and you should have seen the robins come real close to get the articles With which to "feather their nests." Cute, pert little things. , , . I went past my "old homestead" Friday en route to a luncheon and of course passed Lizzie Post's garden.. It shows she has been doing some work in it, ing. lame ankle, notwithstand- Here's The Answer to Wet Corn WET YEAR& OR DRY Butler STOR-Tl-DRY'/7a/s off e In dry years, lets you harvest two to four weeks earlier for less field loss, higher yields and more income. • Gives low-cost, reliable protection against heavy discounts and spoilage losses in wet years. • Lets you sell early harvested grain at pre-harvest prices — or seal and get your loan sooner. • Saves work—harvest while ground is still dry, and firm.

The latest is Mary Susan Eason, whom I have mentioned from time to time since childhood. I've known her mother many years and we have interesting conflabs when I call her for news. Mary Susan bears a strong resemblance to her mother but has her father's stature. * * * It's a lucky thing for Chris Wallukait that Florence Furst mentioned his wife Beulah's birthday, otherwise he might have been in the doghouse. As it was he came across with a gift. Not a four carat diamond, but a gift nevertheless. In further recognition of the important date. Beulah was given a dinner party by her brother-in-law and sister, Mr and Mrs Robert Scott and the Wallukaits' son-in-law and daughter Herbert and Betty Weydert and daughters Christy and Kathy were also guests. * * * Gertie Oetkins wore a hat all day last week, a hat made, by Mary McEvoy, one of the Brownies, troop 29, who gave a tea for the mothers and a hat show. Mary's was chosen first among the chapeaus and was fashioned of straw trimmed with flowers and had a red nylon stocking "veil" attached. * * * Maude Hutchison Dorweilei told me her brother Rae, Waterloo, is very busy getting a violin ready for the adult hobby show at Ames. I know he. has made the instruments for some time and he has told me a little about the extreme care which goes into the assembling, the choice of woods, etc. It takes 250, hours to make one violin. Great care las to be taken in the varnishing ;oo and once he had 'heart-break- ,ng experience. He laid' an instrument on a plastic surface thinking it would be perfectly safe. The varnish came off where it touched. * * * ' Another colossal job I've seen lately — two suits made at the recent sewing classes. Tailored beautifully and fitting like gloves. But to me, who doesn't ike to sew, it represents a mountainous project. But how atisfactory when accomplished. » * » I've been hearing about cloth- overed shoes. I'd have more latience with that, I think. I've lone some "footwork" in my day, last, present and future (I hope). * * * When I phoned Zauggs for news, I had expected Mary to nswer. It was her daughter <aren who confessed it was her ighteenth birthday. I asked, 'What are you going to do to elobrate?" "Nothing, I guess." She replied, "stay home and work srobably." If Mary reacts as I igure, there will be a cake and omething special for supper. * • * I was at a luncheon Friday and a caserole dish was so good it lesorvcs mention. One can tuna ish, one can chicken and rice ;oup, one can mushroom soup, 1 .•up diced celery, 1 cup milk, 1 an or package of chow mein noodles. Mix and bake in 300 degree oven l'/i hours. * * • I have a friend who has gone on a diet and lost 15 pounds. I wish I had the courage, or whatever it take?s, to go on one. * • « Isn't this the truth? "If at first you don't succeed, you'll get a ot of unsolicited advice." I always think of my father who passed a man cutting down a big ree. Dad stopped to chat a ait and the man said, "Well, "laven't you any advice on how [ should proceed with this tree?" Dud answered, "No, I don't know a thing about it. You seem to be doing all right as far as I can see." The man answered, "Well, you're the first person who has gone by here who hasn't told me how to do it." * • » Happenings in April, 1924 — C. & N.W. depot broken into rind robbed by man who later gave himself up at Jackson, Minn., and confessed. Jacob Teuscher poisoned by medicine meant for goats, but recovered. L. N. Thorpe, prominent Algona farmer, trampled to death by bull at his home south of town. * * • Earl Toothman was visited Sunday by relatives, Mr and Mrs Jacob Peterson, Forest City. * * * Fish were biting Sunday, Apr. 24 — in witness whereof Tom Rich and Dan Davis caught 40 bullheads. I know because Tom told me so when he came to "treat" my ailing T.V. Bob Spencer, 13, also did some fishing and caught a nice catfish, a 10- inch, 1 pounder. * » » What kind of bird is it that has a cute black bib, a grey body and brown tipped wings? A pair have been fluttering around in '*-,;" fftrj the bridal wreath bushes my west window* .They the leaves, aren't A bit d at my closefiess in w,atcriih| them and it was When ont fated me I saw 'the blaek front that looks like a^bib.^ .,'"'' •'<*,' When Mr and Mrs Silas Ban- \vart, West Bend, stopped at rny desk to ask about calling on Mrs Freden, 1 asked if they v>efS related to Sarah Kropf, whom I know well. .They are relatives of Sarah's sister, a Mrs Banwart, also of West Bend.
