Upjwr DM Molnei Tuesday, Dee. 20, 1960 • \ '\> I like Christmas because one hears from friends who write an annual letter. This week I heard from Mrs Eva Crapser, whom I met years a :o and have visited in her home at a few t:meK. Her husband Bruce died several years ago and she spends much of her time with a daughter and son-in-law at North Bend Wash. ' « * v From Dorris Long Pitcher, Wellsv.'lle.

The main purpose of the visit was to attend the concert in which Jimmie, 12, played cornet. It was the junior symphony and to be chosen to participate is indeed an honor. <. * » I was asked awhile ago if I remembered the name of George Johnson's father and mother. I didn't, but inquired of Frank Ostrum and learned Mr Johnson's name was Alfius. I had thought it was Aloysius or some such name. The information was wanted in connection with a memorial plaque being prepared at the First Baptist church. * Y * I was asked about pheasants that Horace King and his father raised years ago. The story was that a pair-or perhaps more-got out and sought their native habitat and thereby started raising families which now constitute our flocks.

A letter from my cousin Melvin Henderson, written Dec. 5, says "Two weeks ago we had a dinner of a Santa Ana wind and we lost our new patio thai was just put in this May. It took it off and laid it (an alumnum roof) up on the root of the house! Reports said the wind hit 85 miles per hour, and I can assure you it was all of that. However, the insurance company was on the job. and we now have another cover all installed- and hope that we will be more fortunate from now on as it was so nice in warm weather. It offered a lot of shade. Today it has been quite cool and a low of 28 is forecast for this area. Last year one wmter night we lost several nice shrubs. Hope we can escape damaging cold -this year. It has been real nice up to now and we have had more rain than for the past eight years to date. We can use a lot more us it is so dry and water is becoming a real problem." * » » Having re-read Melvin's letter I have decided to quote a para- giaph which will be of interest to many in.the Bancroft area and to a few in Algona, "Paul unfl Hazel Pellcymounter's son Bob was married to a California girl several weeks ago and we attended the wedding at Downey." * * * Apparently "Mr Lion was not a vegetarian." A missionary traveling in the jungle met a lion. Fearing for his life, he fell to his knees in anxious prayer, and was comforted to see the lion fall to his knees beside him. "Brother Lion," said the missionary, with relief, "how delightful that you join me in prayer when a moment ago I feared for my life." "Don't interrupt' 1 , snapped 'the lion, "When I am saying grace." - t- » Mrs Marian Hennesey returned several weeks ago from a three month visit with relatives at Edinborough, Scotland.
