November 15, 1960 Hlgona ®taper November 15 f 1960 THANK YOU I WISH TO EXPRESS MY SINCERE THANKS AND GREAT APPRECIATION TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED ME IN THE GENERAL ELECTION. MILTON NORTON for o glorious week-end in Minneapolis stay at the New Inquiry was made a short lime ago as to the whereabouts of Joe Sheppard, former Algonan. Well, here's the dope.

Carolina has a list of mem bets whose birthdays were in October. Glenn's name was among them but he neglected to inform me as to which one he was celebrating. 1 could make a good guess and not miss it much. The bulletin is full of pert sayings and this one strikes me as being particularly apt.--"Overwcight is often just desserts." Another is "If you're tired of reading about I he evils of smoking, give up reading." * * * Here's a good story lhat fits Nikita. "Betcha the Russians shoot the wrong man into space. NOW!

You've got the ideal Tee, Butternut tender-curl* the dough, stretches the bread-cell*. Makes it tender. Presses/out air bubbles, tho bread stays fresher. Gives it a smoother, more even texture. And the extra baking time this new loaf gets gives it a better flavor. Not we haven't changed the fine Butternut recipe. Everything's the same except the ourl. That's the trickt Thi«TENDR-KURL» method does good things for broad. Now it's The right one's too fat". News again back in 1924 — Congressman and Mrs L. J. Dickinson depart for Washington. D. A. Haggard irft for San Antonio to spend the winter. Charlotte Baker (sister of Dr. if I remember right) and Cecil Harsch married. Algona won foot ha 11 game from Kagle Grove Thanksgiving Day. Farm buildings on Valentine farm east of Bancroft burned. Mr and Mrs Ralph Herberts recently visited friends and relatives al Montevideo, Willmar and Clarkfield, Minn. At Clarkville they were with Mr and Mrs Orric Combs who lived in the Cy- luner vicinity when Mrs Ethel Gilles did. They probably knew her as Ethel Davidson. The Combs are in a nursing home and wished lo be remembered to Mrs Gilles. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary last year. * * • Mrs S. E. McMahon is a vigorous 89 and her sister Mrs May Grapotte of near Phoenix is 87. Recently Mrs McMahon and her son Maurice. Minneapolis, made a trip to the southwest and visited friends and relatives, among them the .sister who also enjoys equally good health. Isn't it wonderful? Dorothy Kilgallen is not pretty —in fact if I weren't afraid I'd be sued for libel, I could describe her quite eloquently. And if you saw her Sunday night, Oct. 20, well, she was breath-takingly horrible in something that I suppose was a wig. But when Bennett Cerf, at the close of the program, told her she could now take off the hair piece, I had no choice but to believe what my eyes weren't sure of. * » * When I read "Cost $3 million to Guard Nikita", I thought what a waste of money. Here all I want is $1 million and two more are spent on some one who so far as I am concerned isn't worth a thin dime. Think what that sum would do for a vast number of our own good people. * » • Thank you Mabel Livingston for your recent letter, and thanks to you Charley for the box of dates. I hope to have a letter off to you ere this gets in print, but just in case I don't make it, you •will know the gift'was received and duly appreciated. 51 Enrolled At S.U.I. From County Area An interesting card from the Chester Schnbys was postmarked Schiller Park. III. Berniee writes "We've enjoyed lunch here-right by a window watching the ears pass under us. Saw an Iowa girl crowned National Dairy Princess." The place they were in was the Fred Harvey "Top of the Tollway" where restaurants and fiift shops are built on bridges and diners can watch the traffic go under the buildings. » » » Luck was with Karen Downey, daughter of Mr and Mrs Joe Downey, for from her mother 1 got the information that Karen was in Billings, Mont, awaiting a flight that crashed to make the return trip to Minneapolis. Karen and a friend were airline hostesses going from Minneapolis to the Virgin Islands and Nassau. I'd never make a hostess. I'm too timid and planes don't appeal to me. though I was glad to have the ride with Bob McCullough a few years ago. It satisfied my curiosity, • • • • Gordon Kuhn called on me Ihe other day. I was glad to see him and we had a nice chat. He is greatly improved from his recent light stroke and has lost 40 pounds, he says. That will bo very beneficial I am sure. He is looking forward to a summer al the Ol^obojis where they will place their trailer house. The fish had better beware, for he is an apt angler. • * * Another caller Sunday was Myrta West, Perry, who spent the weekend here seeing old friends. Many will remember her late husband Robert West who also lived at Bancroft with his parents, Dr. and Mrs West. Not long ago there was a picture of him as a small lad in a Columbus day program-along with Margaret Durant, Mae and Ruth Palmer. Until then I hadn't known the Wests ever lived in Algona. My aunt Eva Cady Goddard and Mrs West were close friends at Bancroft. Myrta said the children George, Bob and Mabel were born in Algona. Dave and Ida Leffert took Myrta around town to see the new homes and businesses. She was amazed at the change and happy to see her favorite town had made such strides. I still think there must niji in iiur census. * * * Hilda Gronwall went lo St. Ci'iud. Minn.. Saturday for an overnight visit with her son and daughter-in-law. Mr and Mrs Hubert Gnmwall. and was taken there by her son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Keith Howley. Sunday. Nov. (i. she left Minneapolis via jet for San Diego. Calif., where she will spend the winter with her son-in-law and daughter. Mr and Mrs George Sayles. She left Minneapolis at midnight and reached San Diego al 5:f)5 a.m. Monday. Just think of ii! Ed and Genevieve Genrich wire here Friday and showed me some of the slides they had taken on their trip abroad. They had many more I hope to see later if they can find the lime to come back. They showed E;jypt and the Holy Land. Biautiful pic-) lures, and Genevieve explained each one in such an interesting manner. Mrs Gilles shared the pleasure and we are indeed grateful to the Genriches. We h;,vi' a clear conception now of 'he countries. * * « I met the Mrs Palton who called me to tell me she had picked wood violcis a few weeks ago. She came to my door Sunday with a bouquet of lovely white mums, a part of the decorations Irom her daughter Glendora's wedding and wanted to give them to some one to place in the hall. So we got acquainted and chatted a bit further on violets. Glendora was married Sunday to Charles Margrove. * * * Could it be possible that Evas- hcvski was in Algona Sunday A.M.? A man strongly resembling him was seen in the Algona hotel coffee shop and the person who told me said if it weren't actually Evy, it sure was his "twin." I said he should have been paged. If it were Evy, he would have answered. If there was no response, then it was just a case of mistaken identity. Which leads me to say "I'm so sorry Iowa lost Saturday." „ » * Did you ever eat Canadian goose? Lcroy Lau got one at Union Slough when the-season opened and it was served Sunday IOWA CITY.
