June 14, 1960 gUgona Upper jttoines June 14, 1960 Tidbits by Evelyn Further interesting information on the 'old Tlwrington hotel xvhich recently burned is that it •was built by Ancil McCijll, f-umd- fathor | of the late Mart McCall. I don't remember any previous owners of the hotel, Mrs Uausch find .her daughters; Ann, Kate. Bertha, and son Ed being mo renames than acquaintances, though I did know Ann, who married Clarence Paino. * * * Mrs Nick Fisch look one look at my violet and pronounced it "no good." In it's place she has brought the same kind.and color and a white one to keep it company. Both are so i hardy looking and my hope is that I will prove to be a good "mother." * * * Another Fish I know (note the different spelling) is Katherinc Stewart (Mrs Ralph Fish) of near Chicago. She is a good mother to three adopted dau£ntcrs. I'm mother to a plant. I have the easier job. Katherine is busy caring for the trio, all sick with measles. Her parents are Mrs Connie Stewart and the late Clarence Stewart, former residents here. * * * When I wrote an item on Benjamin Meyer and his fianeeu Jene Meyer,! recalled other girls whose names were not changed. May Anderson and Oscar Anderson, Betty Barry and Roy Berne and Opal Cronan and James Cronin. * * * Inquiry was made of me re• ccntly by James De Lash, Hot Springs, S. D., for Ralph and Gertie Lning. Mr De Losh, Gfi. lived here many years ago on ;> farm four miles from Burl. He was only 13 years old when the family left here but he'remem- bered the Laings and knows Russell Cook. I was sorry to have to It'll him Ralph Laing was killed in a motorcycle accident years ago and Gertie Laing, who was married to Sam Smith, died some lime ago, too. Mr DcLosh raid he attended Burl grade school. There will probably be many persons who will remember jhim. * * * Mr and Mrs Pete Halsrud had quite a -gathering of relatives at their home June 5 which included a daughter, Mrs James Elliott two granddaughters, Mrs Ed Marlow and Mr* Dennis Eller and five great-grandchildren. Phil and Tony Marlow and Roger, Mark and Todd Eller. Imelda Engesser came Sunday to take Inez Miller for a ride. Mrs Miller says it has been two years since she was outside. It was. a real treat which she; enjoyed immensely. * * * L. E. Linnan returned June 6 from Dubuque where he and Mis Linnan and Bernie had attended the Golden Jubilee of Sister Mary Bernadine. sister of the well-remembered Father Davern. It was also the golden Jubilee for another former Algona sister, Sister Mary Bertill. * * * It was a greai thrill for Mrs Clark Orion to have as callers June 3 Dr. and Mrs Gerald Fisher, four children and the doctor's mother who came from French Equatorial Africa where her son. Rev. Knute Orion and his wife Lillian are stationed at a missionary base and hospital. The Iwo men have been associated in work for some time and the Fishers are now enrouto to Ta- corna. Wash., for mid-missions work for n year. Knute and Lillian are due for a furlough a year from August, at which time their four years of foreign service is ended. After providing the guests with coffee and a hearty "brunch". Myra it-sked them if there was anything she could offer lo further their comfort. Shyly Mrs Fisher admitted she would love to wash her hair and the doctor wanted a shave, both requests complied with immediately. * * * It is picnic lime, which fits in with this little tale — He: "Where do all the bugs go in winter?" She: Search me." lie: "No thanks. I just wanted the information." * * * Going back to June 1924 —Algona Community Club picnic at We Recently Had GAS Air Conditioning Installed At Our House — AND WE LOVE IT" * ; B- Recent addition of a new 3-ton Bryant GAS air conditioner at the home of Mr and Mrs Don Prieskorn, who live at 518 South Moore street, Algona, was reason for the above statement. Mr Prieskorn is district supervisor for the Moorman Mfg. Co., and has been with the firm for 14 years. He, his wife and son, Mark, 9, have lived in their present home, above, here fbr six years and had the foresight to make preparations for hooking up a GAS air conditioner when their GAS furnace was installed several years ago. Now they have their new Bryant GAS air conditioner (shown at the right) and are really set for the sweltering weather coming up.

Oops — that wanderlust, of mine again. I never seem 1o get it. appeased. And just back from a wonderful vacation. Oh my! * * * Judge and Mrs G. W. Stillman left June 8 on a six week vacation in the east. The first three weeks will be spent with their son-in-luw and daughter, Dr. and Mrs John Merrill and family at. Woods Hole, Mass.. who are there for the summer. They will also visit briefly with friends in Boston. From there 1 they will go to Kemplville. Nova Scotia, and join Mrs Ray Kooo, sister of Mr Stillman. The trio will go to northern Nova Scotia for the remainder of the vacation. * * * One of our hewer residents here is Theodore Keene, of Whittemore. He has an interesting bobby-carving Madonnas and painting them. 1 am reminded of the doll furniture Albert Hackman carved for me years ago. Little chairs made from solid blocks of woods, rocking chair, arm chair, lounge, piano and all the rest of the things a well-furnished doll house should have. * * * The American Cheviot Sheep Association held a meeting Tuesday at the farm of Howard Secly with over 60 persons in atttend- ancc. Among them were the national president, John Skinner of Lincoln, N*;b., and Fieldman Dewey Jolzman, Altoona. Now I haven't the least idea what Cheviot means, I am inclined to think the spelling isn't correct. I can think of cheviot wasn't that a kind of woolen cloth Well, maybe that applies to sheep. NEXT SUNDAY IS FATHER'S DAY. It's a day thai grts not hearty :•••> much attention a.- M"jh")'s Day, but this is mostly because r.:<'ii don'! d'-mand or i.'n.ioy -n much fuss made about, them as v.i im 11 do. li i- in no way indicative uf the. plain; Fathei holds in "WHOEVER HEARD OF WHISTLER'S FATHER"?, is a question that is often asked. Whistler painted a picture of his mother that is known the world over. Ma\ be his pa wasn't photogenic, but in his day Whistler's father was lots more famous than his mother! I'ather was an engineer and known for his projects on several nutments. All his wile ever did was sit for her portrait. I HAVE ALWAYS MAINTAINED THAT FATHER should get ully as much adulation on his day as Mother does. Usually, when hey do get around to honoring him, somebody is always trying to ell the Old Boy how to reform and be a better father. "l have spoken out in the past against this, too, and the following might ;eem that I'm going over to the opposite attitude. But because Woman's World has carried Ten Commandments For Mother, this .•ear I mean to write Ten Commandments For Father. * * * I —THOU SHALT CULTIVATE a sense of humor. A strong Kick, bottomless pocketbook, steady nerves, firm discipline and reat patience are truly qualities that become a father, but a price- ess asset is a Dad who can laugh with his children. * * * II — THOU SHALT REFRAIN from being too much of a "pal" to thy son. Hikes, baseball games, fishing trips with thy children lath great merit, but pals of his own age the child hath. What s truly needful is the companionship of a father who is older, wisher and, yea, more understanding. » * * III — THOU SHALT ACQUAINT THYSELF well with thy daughter for from her father comes a damsel's life-long attitude toward men. If thou seekest, in thy daughter thou will find the purest relationship existing between male and female: coquetry without lust; companionship without competition: beauty without ie ravages of time; and charm without the carping that "has lately developed in thy wife, the mother of thy daughter. * * * IV — THOUGH, BECAUSE THOU HAST a wife and Children, thou hast ample reason for beating out thy brains in the market place, thou shall not look down on thy job as a father. The daily bread that thou earnest maketh a full belly'for thy family, but the daily bread added to thy presence as a father maketh full hearts. * * i * V — THOU SHALT ACQUAINT THY children with the intricacies of thy labor. If thou art a farmer, thy children shall benefit from helping to sow the fields with seeds; if thou art a scribe, thy young can help to fold the papyrus; if thou art a worker in pipes and conduits, thy children can fetch and carry for thee. And truly, if thy young help by the sweat of their brows in the livelihood, the daily bread shall be the sweeter for it, and thou shall have thy children at thy hand and rejoice in their nearness.

Wed 25 Years ' Open house was held Sunday afternoon from 2 to 5 for Mr and Mrs Arend Neeland who were celebrating their silver anniversary. The guest book was in charge of Mrs Alma Tjaden of Buffalo Center, Mrs Raymond Rippentrop poured and Beth vi — THOU SHALT: HELP IN THE WORK of" thy household , when thy wife is cumbered with much serving but thou shall not be bamboozled out of thy place as the head of the house. Though thy robes on 'occasion be covered with an. apron, there should be none who are doubtful as to which person wears the pants. Neither shall thou abdicate when thy young are needful of chastisement. * ' * * VII — THOU SHALT RESIGN THYSELF to a certain amount of contusion in thy household. The days of thy youngsters' growing up are filled with two a.m. feedings, spilling pablum, puppies, Cub Scout den meetings, bubble gum, orange peels in thy favorite chair, adolescent giggles and phone calls, experiments in Girl Scout cooking served to Ihee as thy dinner, quarrels while thou are trying to walch TV, borrowing of the family chariot, demands for increases in shekels, swains calling upon/ thy daughters. But truly, these too, shall pass away and the day will come when thou shall find thy household orderly, but unbearably quiet. * * * VIII — THOU SHALT HAVE GREAT EXPECTATIONS of thy children. Thou shall expect them to be stronger, smarter, more beautiful, wiser, richer and more Godly than their parents. Thou shall also expect them to produce for thee in the fullness" of time, most wonderful grandchildren. * * * IX — THOU SHALT BIND THY CHILDREN close to thee'with ties of loving care all the days of their growing up; yet shall you release them gladly to stand on their own when the years 'are accomplished and the need for thee and thy checkbook are not so necessary. * « * X — THOU SHALT SEEK OFTEN thy God, the Father of us all If thou sendesl thy wife and thy children to the temple, they shall learn the laws of the prophets, but if thou art also faithful in thy worship, .the words, "like unto a Father", when spoken of th« Almighty, shall become real to thy children, and thou shalt find a never-ending spring of guidance, joy and blessing in the rearing of thy children. * * * THE HOME-GROWN STRAWBERRIES are beginning to ripen. There's nothing better, it seems to me, than berries fresh from the patch, with the sun still warm on them. But then, cold strawberries and cream for breakfast are nol lo be sneezed at, either. * * * IE.YOU WANT TO MAKE a real special strawberry dessert, you might try this recipe for Strawberry Cream Pie. 1 cup sugar 6 tablespoons cornslarch Va leasp. salt 2 1 -j cups milk, scalded 2 slightly beaten eggs 3 tablespoons butter Vi teasp. vanilla 1 9 inch, baked pastry shell 1 pint strawberries 1 cup heavy cream, whipped.
