1 had a nice chal with Louella Baker the other day. It left me quite exhausted just listening to her activites. Of course, there is much to do in kbcping a home and yard ship-shape and acceptable to a fastidious person. It's wonderful to have the necessary vim, vigor, and vitality. She was in Tucson and California last winter. At West Covina, Calif., she visited Mr. and Mrs. George Free. Free is a pharmacist and- it seems natural that his Wife should assist him in the drug store they-have named "The Cpurtcsy Pharmacy'. • • • i I had a cute little caller the other day. Not so little by year old standards, but quite a husky little lad, who walks a little drunkcnly, I'll -admit, but very well for being less than a year old. He was brought by his grandmother Mrs. William Cook and his name is Vincent Volk. '» » • From Glenn Naudain, Rock Hill, S.C., came a sheet "The Rotary News". Glenn is- one of the directors. The paper had humorous skits, business reports and a four paragraph account of Glenn's recent sojourn in the hospital. Surgfery, but for what he didn't say. With the exception of some abdominal scars he mci^- tionerl, he will be as good as new in a short time. And during that short time he has been forbidden to drive his car. ' » * * This story contained in the sheet was so cute I had to pass it on. "A little boy making his first visit, to a large city was in the elevator of a skyscraper. They had shot upward at a breathtaking speed for 50 floors. The little fellow asked timfdly, "Daddy, does the Lord know we're coming?" '« • * • Fred Tiede, formerly of Lu- Verne, now a resident at Good Samaritan, has been visited by his daughters Mrs. Joseph Papps, of Detroit, Mich., and Mrs. John Spalding, of Midland, Mich They made the trip via motor and a very enjoyable part of the "Everything's okay at home- I called long distance'? PMC* of mind ... the happy knowledge that all is going well when those you love are far away. A long distance call brings you together for magic minutes . .. keeps you abreast of family news and plans ... gives you that priceless peace of mind you want. Whenever you travel, wherever you go, keep in touch with home by long distance telephone... the next best thing to BEING there! SAVE TIME! CoH by number, it's twice as fasf} SAVE MONEY! Caff ttation-to-ttation. NORTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY journey was the Chesepeake and Ohio ferry. I love a ferry, too. Rode one in California from San Pedro to Terminal Isle, a short distance, and a nice long ferry ride at Houston, Tex. « ' * * Mrs. 8. E. McMahon and her great-grandson, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. Peter Schmitx, and Peter is son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Schmitz, Storm Lake, the former Marian McMahon, have June birthdays, just a day apart. Now how is this for gen- eology? The rest of the story is that Marian and daughter Gretchen came from Storm Lake June 25, the son Maurice McMahon from Minneapolis, the same day, and all spent the weekend here. Sunday they celebrated Mrs. McMahon's eighty- eighth birthday. Mrs. McMahon is quite active for her years, has a large flower garden, does her, own housework, and drives her own car. She is mentally alert and interested in current events. Congratulations, Mrs. McMahon. and many more happy returns of the day. .• '« « Mrs. Bell Black was made great-grandmother recently when a daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Don Cook at Iowa City. The infant has been named Kimberly Ruth. The maternal grandparents i are Mr. and Mrs. Dick Kain, the paternal grandparents are .Mr. and Mrs. Ray Cook. * • • I have just finished a conversation with Vaunita Rentz (Mrs. Russell R.) She said she hoped the family would be ready to take off Saturday for Crystal River, Fla., where they will visit Russell's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Estel Rentz. She said their family of three, Dianne, Susan and Wayne, is pretty small compared with the traveling Louis Reillys, but like them,, they have their luggage carrier completed, and now if nothing interferes, they will be off July 2. They expect to be gone three weeks. * * * What has become of the big July Fourth celebration Algona used to have? Not that I crave one. I wouldn't go anyhow unless it was on "Main Street". But I just got into a "way back when" mood and remembered some celebrations I have attended. One at Bancroft I remember well. Zada Brunson is deceased but the other two participants (male) are in existence. I, who finished the quartet, must admit I am a has been, but it's nice to have pleasant memories. Some , dancing, a ball game, ice cream, and I might add, plentjf of 'h'eat. ^L miles of walking back and forth to and from one amusement to another. * * • • The pair of goldfish that have been passed around from room to room (except mine) decided life was no longer worth living. And I don't blame them. What i Pvt. Manser In Army Unit Sent Over To Okinawa acute attack OVCT - took Thanks for your inti-rcst. me.

So cute? * * » • On the lopic of names, which would you rather be. a Heffelfinger or a Hoopingarne.r? Yes. 1 am talking about real people with odd names. Pauline Heffelfinger, Mingo, has announced marriage plans, the bridegroom elect being Arthur Hoopirtgarner, Rolfe. Does anyone remember Max Spencer, who was a World War I veteran? I had inquiry from a Mi'. Spravers, East Des Moines. who came to West Bend July 4 and then on up here to try and find this war buddy. I referred him to Stewart McFaddcn. Later Esther Benson said there was a Spencer family here years ago who lived in the south east part of town. RETIRED L. T.

ALL LEAD TO EAST END GROCERY future has a goldfish? » * » It's nice to have grandchildren as an excuse to attend circuses. Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Hargreaves, their son-in-law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. Dick McGinnis and tots Suzanne, Michael and Janette went to Mason City Thursday to see the Shrine circus. In spite of "39 years" I'd like to see a good circus too. I am always interested in the trapeze acts and the wire walking stunts. « * * I was so happy to meet Mrs. Floyd Wilcox, Corona, Calif., Thursday afternoon for she and her husband are close friends of my cousin Carl Henderson and, 'his late wife, Fay. I was sorry to learn Fay had died June 2. She was such a nice little woman whom I met in 1939 while on a visit at Pomona. Carl is overseer of a large ranch at Corona. Mrs. Wilcox was brought here to see me by Mrs. Emma Crouch whom they were visiting. * * . * Mrs. Everett Barr and Mrs. Twillah Bartholomew should get together and compare notes. Both are suffering from "remodelitis" and from experience, I is an acute disease. The complete cure comes when the last bit of plaster dust has been washed away, the smell of paint and varnish has evaporated, and the rugs, furniture, pictures and curtains are % back in their proper places. 'Tis then one breathes a sigh of complete satisfaction and plans are made to have, the friends in for coffee to see what has been accomplished. * * * Meda Redfield, Des Moines, called me the other day and asked if I knew what had become of Nellie Graham. I haven't the slightest idea and my last recollection of her was when we were in. eighth grade. I- don't remember her features too well, but her beautiful dark brown curly hair remains in rriy 'mind. She and Nina Roney (Mrs. Jess Baker) were close friends. «'«••» • It was a wonderful weekend ,the members of a card club recently enjoyed .at Beeds Lake, Hampton, and participating were Mr. and Mrs. George Balluff, Mr. and Mrs. Don Jorgenson, Mr. and Mrs Howard Smith and the respective families, all numbering 14 persons.

They 'really went do luxe with sleeping bags and air mattresses. * •* * More news of 1924,— Over 400 guests attended the butlenriak- ers' banquet at the floral hall. Severe wind and rain storm damaged fields of grain. (1960 isn't too bad I guess. Nature is up tu her old tricks.) July is an important month in the Ed Hagg family.
