Thank y<5u, ttoop 29, Boy Scouts; for your July 4 favors, fhey were a bit belated but enjoyed none the less. To the curious, rolls of Life Savers, wrapped to look like firecr&ckers were on the tray, of the residents here at Good Samaritan and enjoyed much more than the real crackers Would' have been. I am sure all of us have a sweet tooth but our firecracker days are in' the dim past! Bea Holt thinks it wasn't very sisterly not to let her know the relative had surgery a couple of weeks ago. Thought she had been notified was the excuse. Well, it saved Bea some worry, so she'd better say "Thanks for not remembering." Anyone who is so casual probably won't be sitting on the Verahda 'talking about my operation. . . Albert .Genrich, LuVerne, drop ped in one afternoon recently and' called on several former LuVerne residents ridw living here at G. S. He told me he is a second cousin of Ed Genrich and boasted he could out-talk Ed. At the rate he was Boing, I'd say he was 100% correct. •. • • .

They meet with my approval and when the lawn is again free of the workmen's equipment, it will be most attractive. The pools are a fine addition.) Mrs Mattie McWhorler has had a pleasant time. Her son and his wife, Mr and Mrs Richard Demaray were here from Joplin, Mo. and Mrs H. J. Crosby, Ocala, Fla.,. who has been visiting her parents the Frank Ryersons of Burt The Ryersons and Mrs McWhorter have family connections of a close nature, so all have been "hobnobbing" together. A recent letter from Mabel Livingston to Mrs Gilles and me. bore the reminder that we will soon be having birthdays. She failed to mention her own. She too is a "Leo". She and husband Charley have been at Prescott Ariz., to get away from the extreme heat at Phoenix. I always remember being parked in fron! of the courthouse there and admiring the band shell on the corner. I wonder if the shell is still there or if progress ha shoved it and the band to some remote spot, The late Frank Seeley and his wife Bcrnice, the former Bcrnice Skinner, will be -.veil-remembered here as well as their daughter Joan. The family lived in Florida for some time but not long after Mr Seeley's death, the women moved to Ames where a brother-in-law and sister of Mrs Seeley, Mr and Mrs Frank Thorpe, live, Joan took up teaching as a profession and this fall will teach in the Des Moines schools, She has had a delightful year abroad, teaching in U.S. schools at Ludvigscn, Germany. With a group, she has traveled extensively, Switzerland included, and has even been behind the "iron curtain" at Helsinki, Leningrad, Moscow and Prague. It would be interesting to hear her give a talk on her travels.
