August 12-1 read in this morning's paper "Moscow radio said there are 5.000 persons 100 years or older in Soviet Armenia." I), probably just SEEMS they've lived Unit long. * * * Birthday greetings have begun to-arrive. One from Lela Peck (Mrs. Dara Mendenhall of Laramie Wyo.), said in part-Leona's boys (Lela's grandsons) are slii; with us. We took them to the Cheyenne rodeo nncf it was very good. We also took them to •Denver to see the Shriners' parade which lasted four and a half hours. Highl. now the boys are up in the- hills helping some friends of ours will) their haying. Alice. Ditsworth .-topped here a couple of days on ner way to her son's," Thank you Lela for remembering my anniversary and I recall yours is Aug. 10. Here are belated Rood wishes and many happy returns of the day. Greetings from my cousin Harry Goddard and his Wife Vinnie conveyed the information that Wichita, Kan., has been very com-, fortable this year. Plenty of rain to keep the grass tureen and fruitful, so Harry is kept busy with tin 1 mower-quite a switch front my ideas of Kansas. He says ground is being broken for a 28- story office building' down town. From the Abner Longs who are at Wellsvillt', Pa., "Everything good and green-just the right kind of rains. Lots of big peaches. Many hundreds of acres near hero." I had never thought of Pennsylvania as a. peach growing place. Had you? ' * * • The pictures of Audubon's re cent storm made me think of Algona's back in 1951. 1 thought of Pauline Norton Morrow and wondered if she had any property damage.

A Wonderland of Thinc's to Set 1 and Do On a recent trip down town I had n chnt. with Virgil Shiickol- forcl, who wasisiUing in his pnrk- cd car. It has bt-en a long time since 1 I hnd soon him. I used to ridfc with him occasionally when ho was driving a taxi. Much has happened to him since than. Just one accident after another and I cautioned him he'd bettor go easy or he'd have his nine lives used up. He is able to get around on crutches now, a hopeful sign. * * * Having waited for some lime to sec "South Pacific", patience was rewarded last week. 1 also saw "I Passed for White", but vote Ihe former picture much tin; better. > * * Friends of Mrs. Olive Thompson will be happy to learn she- is now in a Rest Home nl Portland, Ore., just two blocks from her daughter Helen (Mrs. Fran ft Lnthrop) uncl the daughter Barbara also lives there. She had been in Good Samaritan and several months ago entered St. Ann. * * * The Lathrop house on East Slate street has- been sold to llyland Phillips who is making some changes and the apartments will be kept. An outside stairway is being added. Mrs. Lalhrop ha.; gone to Salem, Ore., to make her home near her daughter Meredith, Mrs. Dwight Parsons. * < * When I read the Burt gradual- ing class of 1910 had seven in attendance I wondered how many my class would assemble for a reunion. No one seems to have the urge to start proceedings for one. We are very scattered. * * * Agatha Hansen and I got into reminiscent mood the other day and our topic was grocery stores. I can go back to the Walker brothers who had a store just west oi' the Iowa Slate bank. E. G. Gilmore had the slore known so long as Sorensens. Prior lo that it was the Ramsey and Runchey slore. Long brothers and Henderson were successors to Langdon and Hudson, then just Langdon, next Langdon and Long. Then Intro was the Uoedcrs grocery in Ihe basemenl of the dry goods store where Fowlers now hold forth. Tom Akre was a clerk there. Soon thereafter he ana Mrs. Akre look over Ihe Heinshon business, feed and groceries, in the old college building which had been moved to the present William' Dau garage site. Patterson brothers, Sam and Jim. had stores on the south side of the street, Sam and. nis son Charley in Ihe west part of Ihe present J. . Penney'store, Jim in the west side of the present Graham store. Gus Sjogren was his chief clerk. Sam's place was sold to Joe Steil and Charles Kuchynka. Jim's was taken over by the National Tea. I've carried you back over good many years. At that time groceries were delivered b> Henry Lowe and his son Clifford. I believe .the Sam Patterson store kept their own delivery-a pair of mules' doing the calling. . While on the old times subject, let's go back to September, 1924, Julia Bourne made president of girls' clubs at the state fair. Officers discovered hootch plant in field east of Algona without owner. F. A. Corey won first prize on his goats at state fair, Bryant Ives married to "Edna iKraft • in Chicago * * • » Here's a cute one. "A Manhattan restaurant calls Itself Tower of Pizza." And another, "In rnost instances, all an argument proves is thai two people are present." ' * n * . When Mrs. Charles Schaeffer told me her son William Hill was working at Oskaloosa with a construction company, I thought of Burl Watson, who is a foreman with the company and was located there. • He and his wife were employed at G. S. last win-' ter till time for his work to open up. * • • Another greeting card this AM. Thank you, Drusilja Mertz. of Grand Island, Neb. * * . * This should be written in "who donit" style, and goodness knows I've read enough of them, I should be able to give it everything. However, I'll stick to my own style. Joanne Hutchison, who has been here visiting her parents Mr. and Mrs. Don Hutchison, had a disagreeable experience recently. A very • short time before she was to entrain for Algona, she discovered the loss 'of her purse, which she had left on the living room table while she stepped into the bed room. Joanne's ticket was in her handbag, along with money needed, on the trip. It took some telephoning and arrangements at the depot to secure Another ticket, a wire home to Dad for money, but things were finally set right and Joanne made it on time. * • • Police reported the purse had been found, sans money of oourse, and Joanne's ticket was left so it can be turned in anH' a refund made. They figured since it was a warm e"<min" •doors were «r>en series uo and the orowler nrohaWv had seen the purse on the table. * * * While watching the little bird's Mrs.'Giltes and * have adopted- I was amazed,at seeing a para- stop for lunch with them. I knew Claude Samsons had lost a bird and when they didn't answer the phone, I called their daughter Dorothy Parsons. This bird was green so it wasn't the Samsons. My birthday'fcrjsed with a fine finale, a telephone call from my cousin Melvin Henderson, Upland. Calif. r and u chat with the family, and a bouquet: of beautiful dahlias and glads from the Glen flaney gardens, bourne by daughter Meredith llol/.hammcr and son David. •» * * I mighl add that since Mrs. Gilles' anniversary was Saturday, we had a mild -celebration by having our dinners together Sunday. A little surprise, too, when our trays were Drought in, a serving of cake with lighted candle and the usual birthday song by the gills who served us.

The appliance clerk had too many coffee-breaks and didn't list the big reduction on Monarch electric ranges. Ask him about them. We have a few stone jars, tin buckets, trash burners and garbage cans left, but couldn't find a piece of paper to write them down on. There are quite a few D-Con rat and mouse poisons'but it was too far back there to find out exactly what they were. Went over to the nut and bolt department and there were so many men running through those bins that I just gave up without listing them. Spent all afternoon in a merchants meeting and didn't have time to list the red- hot tool specials such as scoop shovels and wrench sets and saws. Glanced at the Pittsburg Paint prices and they were so low that it ain't worth listing 'em. We've got your colors too. We were going to advertise the prices on water houses but since it rained we v/ill just have to mark them even lower. Have some real values on 20 inch General Electric fans but we spent the day keeping cool and forgot to list them. Got a phone call about the time I was listing the Unbelievable features of our new oil heaters and plumb forgot to go back and write them down. MANY OTHER VALUES TOO HOT TO LIST!
