I read in the paper recently that she has been honored by the Catholic Theta Phi Alpha sorority and at a national convention in Pittsburgh, Pa., will receive the Siena Medal for "distinctive contribution to Catholic Life in the United States." Mary Ellen' can only move two fingers of her right hand. Yet she retains an active interest in world affairs, and in addition to her book, has founded the League for Shut-ins, and publishes a bi-monthly magazine 1 . Her courage is phenomenal.

The family car, a Lincoln, was' recently traded for a Chevie. Long accustomed to following and riding in the Lincoln, she remained faithful, even though the car was driven by Don Sherman. Then enlightenment came, and she now has her bearings. She is a loyal dog. I've seen her wait hours and hchirs for her mistress Bernice, undaunted by the cold. In severest weather the car is her refuge and her patient in boundless. Nice days she lounges around the yard but never strays far. ,;:.iiti,.r&*.

She has a daughter at Fairmont but she has so many friends here who could hav« gone to see her had she been at St. Ann. A speedy recovery, Mrs D., and my best wishes. • •• • What a boon this would be to dieters — "I've got;to reduce", said the fat lady to'ftie dentist, "so yank away."

Mrs Veenker was deceased and Mary Ellen just a littles girl of eight years or so. Now married and mother of thrca children. Tempus fugit. At Evalyn McDougall's recently we were served a different anc delicious dessert. Bowls of halved strawberries, diced pineapple, sliced bananas, pineapple and orange bits, sweetened anc topped with orange sherbet Yum-m-yum. * * * I am hoping the Laings rebuil on the hotel corner. A frien and I were discussing what might be there if they don't. My wish is for a nice band shell to be erected, plenty of benches provided, nice green grass and flower beds. Algonans have always missed the band stand on the courthouse lawn. Give the band boys a good place they can play from with some pride. Sheila Sullivan was inspired when she chose the Mothers and Fathers Day gift for her parents, Mr and Mrs Wade Sullivan. She is in Carlsruhe, Germany, not far from Heidelberg, and her gift was a tape recording of her activities. You can imagine the joy it brought, hearing her voice as though she were right in the room. She wants her parents to make a recording too. It is 3. wonderful way in which to keep in touch. NEWSPAPER Mrs John Trustem of Joice recently found a newspaper among a group of old keepsakes dated Saturday, April 15. 1865. The paper highlights the assassination and death of President Abraham Lincoln.
