§»pt. U, 1940 AJgono (la.) Upper DM Meftet-5 Thelftw and Hioml Ketwfick, Sisters of Dr. John Kenefick. hfeve returned from a vncntion in Europe. They visited In Cork, Ireland, and there read in the paper of a Dr. Paul Kenefick. They plan to investigate and find out of there may be a relationship. . • * • * . Mr and MM John Haruelman had a recent phone call from their daughter, Lavonne, Mrs Lee Teel, Lancaster, Calif., telling of the accident which befell their little son, Leon, about two years old. He was in the yard and crossed the driveway of a neighbor just as the .car was started, the child not being noticed. His arm and pelvis were run over and he was taken to a hospital immediately. There were no injuries, a miracle if there ever Was cmc. • • • Eralyn McDougall knew what a Hawaiian muumu is. I asked her how come she was so smart. From some studies she had with a group of young folk. A Sunday school class, I believe she said. • • • Haiel Miller and I get inio some interesting Consersations. Lately we discussed teeth. Oh, not false ones. We have our own —YET! • * • Connie Hall, daughter of Mr and Mrs Gordon Hall, will be leaving soon for Dubuque to take a course in pre-nursing. Cindy Hardy, daughter of Mr PROTECT YOUR CORN and Mrs W. A. Hardy, is going to enroll rft the Mankato, 'Minn, college. * * * I think Uncle Sam must be "air conditioning" Larry Bowman, son of Mr and Mrs Earl Bowman. He was in Greenland for awhile, is now in New Jersey apd expects to be sent, to the South-Pole before long. * * * The wedded life of Sandra Strahorn and John Nicholson got off to an exciting start. Sandra is a daughter of Mr and Mrs Kenneth Slrahorn, former Al- gonans. The bridegroom is a student at Ames where the couple will be at home. The Slrtihorns live at Iowa Falls and it was there in the Methodist church that the ceremony took place Aug. 28. The main event was 20 minutes late due to electric light failure because of a severe storm. Now the old saying "happy is the bride the sun shines on" is offset by an old German belief that a happy bride is one that showers are in evidence. I suppose "showers of blessing", or some such thing. Anyhow, I know Mrs Lorenz, mother of "Dutch" said that was an old saw in her native country. That being the case, Sandra should lead a charmed life. But the lights finally came on close to ceremony time, which I said was a good omen. Luckily the bridal finery had been taken to a dressing room in the church. • * • ' • I was talking with Mary Wil- I liams McChesnoy the other day I and she mentioned my item on the old grocery stores. She can go back much farther than I had spoke of the Ase Brunson store which she said was about where the Algona Laundry is now. John Smith, whose daughter, Kaite, gave me violin lessons, had a grocery store south of the court house and.others were owned by Blackford and William Cleary. I temarked there were almost as many stores as people, so who Were the customers? Her father ran a livery stable next to the old Thorington hotel on the site of the present city hall. I knew it as the Peck stable. * * e Several yean ago I did some reporting on Jean F re h c h, daughter of Mr and Mrs Howard (Trench. The other day I asked Bertha French what had become of her. I knew she had married But had forgotten his name. She ;s Mrs Stavros Nicolaous, has a little son and they live in Formosa where Mr N. is hydraulic engineer with a construction company. They live in what might be termed the "American Colony." PROFITS STORE SOONER, SAFER with -SIOUX- Harvest weeks earlier... and store corn in the -SIOUX- crib with complete confidence.

ALQONA IV f, (Bud) ROBINSON f AST ON HIGHWAY II CY 44074 MM Albert Hagg ha* had major surgery and was warned to be careful about lifting and heavier house work. She is abidiftg by doctors orders but a part of her being able to obey orders is due to the kindness of her neighbors, she told me. To Mrs Art Krause and Mrs Hal Long she gives particular thanks for assisting in hanging out a washing and in the preparation of frujt juices for jelly. These are only a few of the kindnesses she says, but she'd like to have everyone know how much she appreciates their thoughtfulncss. • • • "When Good fellows Get Together" there's a iot of fun, and there was a great deal of enjoyment experienced by all of us who had dinner Wednesday evening with Dr. Ray Potter and his wife, Lila. Honor guests were Horace King and his wife Mary, Sunnyvale, Calif., and other guests were Harry Godden and I. The men have known each other many, many years, Horace and Harry since childhood when living as neighbors at Emmetsburg. Ray came into the picture back in high school days after the Kings had moved to Algona. I have known Ray since sixth grade, Horace since around 1904 and Harry since 1910 ,or thereabouts, so you see we had a lot of years to cover with "do you remember this - - do you remember that?" We are aware of our old age and love it. From here the Kings went to Maquoketa to visit Mr and Mrs Hiram Beecllc. the former an old-timer here too * * * Anyone who says to me "Is it hot enough for you?" will promptly be slapped, if not physically, at least mentally. * • * Vice president Nixon and Kathy Roth have something in common, an ailing knee. Nixon gets written up in the big newspapers and Kathy gets little publicity. But shucks-who cares? Her knee is just as important as his, and a lot prettier, I'll venture to say. Kathy has been at Park hospital, Mason City, for surgery and after a few weeks on crutches will be as good as new. * * * While Mr and Mrs Hal Hudson were here from Titusville. a few members of his class got together Wednesday evening, August 31 at Capitola Sample's. Present vvt.-rc tlio visitors. Mr and Mrs Albeit Hi'id, H.izel Lusby and Sri/rid Kohlhnas. The Hudsons are close enough to Cape Canaveral to see the launched roc i-U'ts. etc., but weren't there when the Echo was sent up. But they have seen if from Iowa, more proof of our' wonderful world. * * • Speaking of old age, or rather middle age as the quip goes. "Middle 'age is when your narrow waist and bfoad mind begin to change places." * » • Back in 1924 football defeats were experienced too- Algona defeated 39 to 0. The name of the town was torn off the clipping I have, but it ended in an e, so figure it out. (Eagle Grove, probably) Further in the column it rends, "Algona football team tied in game with Britt." New grade south of fair grounds completed and graveled. * * * August 30 was the second anniversary of my residency at Good Samaritan. August 22 was the first for Mrs Gilles. Tempus fugit.
