tj J Hi -'im- 4-Mlf6no (la.) Upper DM Molnet Tuesday, Oct. 4, How 1 envy Dr. and Mri P. O. Dorweiler who planned to leave about October I on a trip t.o the New England states. At Hartford, Conn., they will be joined by the doctor's brother Paul They will visit Mrs Dorweiler's niece and husband Mr and Mrs W. L. Brown and four daughters at Fairfax, Va., and en route home will stop in Iowa City to visit relatives. • • • Others who are planning an eastward trip are the Abner Longs of Davenpuic who are driving with Mr and Mrs Taylor of Kamrar to Wellsville, Pa., to visit Mr Long's son-in-iaw and daughter Mr and Mrs Glee Pitcher and family. The Taylors are parents of Carson Tayloi, another son- in-law of Abner. * » * Mrs Ethel Gilles was visited Thursday by Mrs Eunice Dyer and her son of Ledyard. The acquaintance goes back many years and they enjoyed very much the chance to discuss old times. '•• * • • Mr and Mrs Paul Palmer have returned from a trip with their son Bob to the west coast. At Cave Junction, Ore., they visited their son-in-law and daughter Mary, Mr and Mrs James Fritz, who in the meantime have gone to Modesta, Calif., where Mr Fritz is enrolled in college. He _ had been a smoke jumper during. the summer. The Palmers also visited at Crater Lake, Ore., and at San Francisco were with ..'.' their son Leo, whose daughter Linda also lives mere. One of the sights written about is the Cliff '.- House which they visited and got a good view of the ships nearby. = At Glendale they were guests of Mr Palmer's brother and sister_ - in-law Mr and Mrs Leo Palmer. .'- Mrs Palmer is th- iormer Nellie Holdridge who will be remembered as a former Algonan. — While in Glendale the visitors saw Mr and Mrs Glen McMurray who live a few blocks from them — • • • Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Po*t. Ethel .__ Gilles and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon last Thursday with Leora St. John. She has a beautiful cat, Susie Nuisance, and I'd like to "catnap" her. She is very responsive to petting and replies in cat language to remarks made to her. She had. a little serving of ice cream and seemed to enjoy the party. Susie is a yellow-haired animal. I am r not very smart about kinds of _^ cats, but I'd say she might be Angora, from the long fluffy fur. I had a white angora one time but the traveling man father undoubtedly was responsible for * the shorter hair, thuugn Bob had a lovely coat too and plumey tail. He loved cantelope. Cari you imagine that? Susie loved butter, 7. so she'd better watch her "fig- ger." Too bad Mrs Mattie McWhorter couldn't be with us. A - bad cold kept her from going to Leora's with us. . * * * • It is confusing having identical names with just a little different spelling which many ignore. The ~ Charles Schafers recently became parents of a daughter and the Charles Schaeffers received [I congratulations from friends. Unless correspondents are careful with address, I'll bet there is •~ confusion with the mail. — ' • • • Mrs Frank Rueb was a busy ~ woman Saturday preparing for supper guests, six of whom she _ an old friend, and six cheer Jea_. had neve- met. Father McAvoy, ders of the Waterloo school that _ played football against Garrigan - Sunday. The menu she planned — sounded very nice, just the sort to appeal to youth. She was a little perturbed over the baby's r conduct, apprehensive I might say and the better description, — for the child had recently had shots that caused a little reaction. Mrs Rueb came to the conclusion if baby was cross, she'd have six "sitters" to fall back on • whjle preparations went forward in }be kitchen. * • • Well, the Hawks have that game wrapped up— 22 to 12 over Oregon St^te. Hurrah! * • « » It's always fun talking with people who have visited the same -towns. I talked with Mrs .... John Voss the other day. Her home town is Davenport and we Z. agreed it is a honey of a city. She was familiar with our street-Dover Court, by that meaning the „ street where we visit the Longs". She and her husband and the sons and daughters-in-law were „. to meet at Strawberry Point for » picnic which reminded me of one of the trips Hazel Lusby, *- Lizzie post and I took to Daven- with her to Friendship Haven. Fort Dodge, what to give away and what to sell. I've been through it s.o 1 ..know what a chore it is. KincUi on the sad side' too, for there arc many keepsakes and beloved things one is reluctant to part with. Yet when it is done, one si-ts back and gives a sigh of relief. It is nice that she will have the companionship pf Ella Thompson and Mrs Allen formerly of Detroit Lakes, Minn. Mrs MurtaRh knew Mrs Allen back in Normal school days when Mrs Murlagh was Miss McDonald ;md Mrs Allen was Miss Gilchrist. Miss Thompson ha? been at F. H. a few months and Mrs Allen recently went there. They will also have the companionship of Charlotte Sweeney Sedgwick, well known former teacher here. * * * Rather than take out my little story on the Kuebs, I'll add a post script." Father McAvoy, and the cheer leaders didn't show up Saturday or Sunday, or was there any message- But it easy to dispose of the food l>y having friends in Sunday ov-. n- ing. '1 he Fred Ericksons wcie iin lucky ones. Mrs John Zalaznik is taking Saturday classes at Drake University, Des Moines as credit Inward her degree. She is studying astromoiiy and Social Trends in Education. The second subject 1 might be able to assimilate, but astronomy is far afield for me. About all that interests me is my horoscope—I'm a Leo person. Aro8 truthfully, I think it is a lot of bunk. I know so many Leo- ites and each or us arc ns different as day and night. So much for influence of the stars, though I know astronomy covers a much wider area. Back to October, 1924— Mr and Mrs Henry Mason and Mrs E. J. Rawson left for Florida. Pro-historic bones unearthed by gravel crew over Fisher bridge. About one hundred members of the Austin-Flint Medical society entertained a\ Algona. Goi any? There's something even handier than a credit card. It eliminates waiting, ends billing, is honored everywhere. It is called money. * * * The Hagg reunion held Sunday at the Albert Hnggs included Mrs Edna Hagg of Dell Rapids, S. D. She was formerly Edna Bankson and says she knew me before arthrists over-took me. I am always glad to have people remember me when I was active. Pf-nole who like to be waited on are the hardest ones to be cured of their ailments.

YOUR COUNTRY NEIGHBOR Meet Ken Roethler Of Rural Algona This week's Country Neighbor is Ken Roethler, who during the present year is farming 440 acres six miles southwest of Algona. While not what you would call an old timer in any sense of the word. Ken has been farming for quite a few years. He and his wife have been on their present farm since 1951. Ken has 110 acres of corn, 80 acres of beans, 60 acres of oals and 50 acres of hay this year. The balance of the land, 140 acres, is pasture. He specializes in feeder cattle and feeder pigs and milks 12 cows. The 35 steers he raises each year go to market as do the 100 or 125 pigs raised on the place. Besides that, according to Ken, his wife raised 300 chickens and "she sells «the eggs end spends the money." About half of his corn each year is sealed, the rest fed to livestock. This means that he has to purchase corn to complete the feeding, but manages to make an estimated 10 cents per bushel that way rather than feeding all his own corn. Mrs Roeihler is the former Dolores Koilasch, daughter of Mr and Mrs Elmer Koilasch of Swea City. The Roeihlers have seven children, including Sharon, 12, Marilyn, 10, Kevin, 8, Craig, 7, Diane, 5 Mike, 2, and Lowell, 11 months.
