e-A!gona (Id,) Uppef Bel MalflM fusitldy, Sept. 27, 1960 lewa, Ihou at* ft capricious ]&dy—from sweltering heat you Suddenly turn a cold shoulder, and now I am concerned with fhy fall wardrobe. A recent letter from my cousin Melvin Henderson says it is over 95 daily for the past two weeks and nigms are very warm. And continued very dry. I'll take Iowa, thank you, at least till Dec. 1. * (' " * Tom Hutchison, son of Tedo and Helen, left Tuesday for California Where he will attend Stanford University. He drove as far as Omaha, Neb., With Chuck Miller and from there took a train and will be met at Frcc- ttiont, Calif, by his sister Sue, Mrs John Carroll. He will be close to San Jose where John and Sue live, which majtes a nice situation. * . *...:-*;•.... * Two Algona girls attended the Olympics in Rome, not together however, and one wondered if they might have run into each other. There has been no report to that effect, but in this small world it could have happened. They are Sheila Sullivan and Marilyn Lowman. Marilyn has returned home and is again teaching physical education in the Davenport schools. Sheila, of course, is remaining abroad. Marilyn was interested in most aspects of the competitions but Sheila Was more interested in the swimming and diving contests, having served as instructor at the pool here and i believe at resort spots in the east. She has written her parents Wade and Cecelia Sullivan that she has a tape recording to send soon. • » * Marilyn was greatly surprised at having her parents meet her at the airport in New York, not know-ing they had accompanied her uncle Clarence Nordstrom on VOTE FOR MILT MILTON G.

MILTON G. NORTON a trip east 'She was" So happy to get back to the United States, though 'she had a marvelous si* weeks visiting various .places. But it was hard for her tb Understand, she said, how anyone could possibly be a turncoat or not love the country with all their hearts. The standards of living are so superior here, and in every way head and shoulders above every other country. She liked the Hollanders best of all, the German people next, but was not too, impressed with the French and Italian,: though having nothing in particular against them. The Holland and German people' were very kind and friendly. * * . * . I was sorry to learn of Gordon Kuhn's sickness.'He had a slight stroke while at the Okobojis With his wife. He was not considered in serious condition and has begun to improve. He has been Very kind in bringing me pheasants and fish oyer a period of years. I hope his recovery will be complete and he can again pursue his favorite sport, fishing. *. * ' * Ed an3 Genevieve Genrich are home from their trip abroad and have been visiting Ed's sister, Millie Nolle. They were here just a short, time, went on tb points in Michigan and will be back some time in October. I'd'like to see them,, and since Millie told me about the pictures they took, it would be wonderful seeing the slides and talking with the travelers. They are tne sort of persons who can get the most out of a trip and be able to tell about it in an interesting and 1 intelligent way. Lots of people travel and see things themselves which they cannot describe in a manner to make others see what they saw. (I've done a lot of see-sawing in my phrasing, but you get what I mean,,) • * * * Mrs Ted Harlman, Rodman, came in to meet me the other day, having read Tidbits for some time. She brought with her Mrs Alma Carpenter, New Hartford, to visit Anna Morey. The women are old friends and went to school together many years ago. Mrs Hartman has a son Melvin in North Carolina in the coast-guard and hurricane Donna has been too close to him to suit her, .though she Is of the opinion he is safe, having not heard to the contrary. * * * I was quite intrigued when Mildred'Johnson told me she has a woman working for her who once was in, Kilter's e, Having been at the Johnsoif house for dinner recently. ,t tnm\ tioned she must 'Have a gbocf cook. She replied "She oritjf worked for Hilter." From that'I assumed she might have been Ifi the Hilter menage, but this is not true. She' was a typist arid hef name was Anna Marie Meief. She is now-Mrs Lloyd SchalleV. True, she has cooked, and it wal in a restaurant where she Was working that "O.I." Schaller mother. They knew each other about a year and were married at Ide« roberstein in 1953. Mr SchalleTis" from -West Bend and his wife joined him there as sooh.'as ar» rangements for her entrance here could be made. He is 'employed With Jim Merryman in the bridt ge construction business, * * Let me add this bit of'addition- al information. Mrs Schaller did, not know Hilter personally' but she did see him a's 'he; passed; through corridors where ^her office was located. Now I ani sure she. was a good typist, but. she has reached the acme as a cook* and my opinion is borne out b,y many persons.

"I live the simple things in life, come rainy day or • sun-, ny, a crust of bread, a sip of wine, a rocking chair, and money!" * * *. ,< ' Frances Eason's hobby is dolls and she has a wonderful collection.
