IUI mlliiMmlni^MMf IHnMHIl INHn Unl II ALICE ZEIGLER GAINES writes fnmi Pine Lawn. Mo. that they had a very successful summer at their baseball camp for boys. Buys attended from every state plus Canada. Puerto Rico and the Bahama Islands. Alice was in Al^op.a recently for the funeral of her brother-in-law Bob Simpson. All the Zieglers were together lor the first time in 2'2 years. Tun bad it had to be at a time of sadness. Florence Dehnert Dinkel writes that they are still on their wheat ranch at Victoria, Kansas — hanfiinn on in spite of rising costs, government restrictions and lower income. She remarked about the- European Hotel beini; »one. Her father ran it for many years. # :X * * FRAN AND BOB NEALY, ROGERS. ARK. (formerly of Alfiona and Burl.) writes that Bob is recovering from a coronary heart attack Oct. 27. He was in the hospital 16 clays and since at home. Fran says, "We were very lucky in 'that the clot didn't tear through the heart so it appears that learning to live with it will make him O.K.". Doc Thissen writes that they are having nice weather at St. Petersburg. Fla. and that he may come to Algona for a visit when it gets warm here. * * * * I ALWAYS ENJOY MESSAGES FROM OUR former teacher, Ruth Messenger Stillwell, Champaign, 111. Ruth resigned from her radio station job last summer to write a televisor) series for National Educational Radio and Television Center and is teaching composition to freshmen at the University of Illinois this semester. Her husband, Gardiner is on a sabbatical leave writing a book; son Tim is in his last year u't Cheswire : Academy in Connecticut and Susan is a junior in Champaign High School * * * * TRUDI LONG CLOW WRITES THAT they are now living in a comparatively small town, Lodi, Calif, Pop. 22,000 and enjoying it. She's not working now but finds herself just as involved as ever. Their Sue is at Washington State U. and engaged to be married, Scott will be in college next fall and Tim is a freshman this year. Betty Vinson writes that they have a "retarded dog" — he took one look at the Christinas tree and annoited it and the presents. "Fine Christmas spirit", Betty says. They live at Rock Rapids. * * * * THE FOLKS AT THE IRVINGTON Presbyterian church had a Christinas .program that intrigues me. Last October they dressed up some of the children and enacted the Nativity scene on colored movies. They had a real, live donkey, pulled by Joseph and with Mary as rider; the flocks of sheep were real, grazing in a Kossuth pasture that in October is much like the country in Palestine that first Christmas. The stable was a colorful red barn and the animals were real Iowa ones. They had three wise men, one of them colored as in the first visit of the Magi, and the Herald Angels' robes blew realistically in the wind. It was perfectly lovely, according to reports. Tliey taped the music and >the Biblical commentary, and the night of the program all they had to do was sit back and enjoy it — no halos to adjust, no lines to remember and no fighting" among the shepherds and 'the angels backstage. What's more the program' is permanent and can be run again and again. For anybody who has ever put on a Christmas pageant — doesn't this idea sound wonderful? * * * * THE BOB RICHARDSONS WRITE from Cedar Falls that they are really enjoying being grandparents. Donabel says, "It's a new type of free love — love them and leave them to their parents." Esther Charlotte Smith writes from Charles City that she dodn't write her annual Christmas poem this year. She lost her father in November and that, with all the problems plus all the annual Christmas programs to prepare left her with little time or inclination. She sends this column to a niece with four "sprouts" so that she can recognize the joys and sufferings of a fellow martyr. Mararet Durant did write Christmas poems — a whole booklet of lovely ones. We shall always treasure it at our house. * .* * * HOW I LOVE THE CARDS WITH pictures of the family on them! There were two with our relatives on them — Ihe Earl Beardsleys "of Lincoln. Neb. and the Russ Wallers of Algona. There was one of Fran and Edmoncl O'Brien's fine family at Whittemore. And there wds one from the Rev. Gilbert Kuypers at St. Paul. Rev. Kuyper had a severe illness last summer from which he was hospitalized 7Va weeks and remained at home 6 more weeks. He is back at the pulpit at Knox church now. He wrote that they enjoy this column each week — even used one of them for his sermon last Sqnday! The picture card from the Rev. Browers was a lovely portrait of. the new church building, soon to be completed here. * * * * BETTY BARRY BERRIE WRITES from Mason City that the family will be together for Christmas, including first of all, that "wonderful grandchild", year-old Jack and his parents, David and Shirley of Dayton, Ohio. Betty is an amazingly busy clubwoman — Crippled Children Society, PTA State Executive Board, president of the Catholic Women's society, and a national delegate to the convention, and (from reports in the papers) a frequent speaker on the campaign on cleaning up obscene literature. She's also a warm, and delightful person. Daughter, Rosanne is back from a year at 'the Unive'rsity of Madrid in Spain, Phil is a junior in Holy Family ;Hi'gh School and David, researching at Wright-Patterson Air Base and working on his Master's. v * * * * MARION. COREY REKERS WRITES from Cedar Falls that, living on. a farm,, they have transportation trouble with their teenagers and had to buy a second car. She says, "I'm beginning to think 'life was pretty simple when they were little and 1 know I accomplished twice as much then as I do now." I know what she means, and hpw I would love to got together with her and compare notes. Marion's sister, Helen Corey Heiv.og writes from Sea.ttle, that she is much involved in rock collections, etc. for their daughter, Holly. Max and Louie Richardson write from Summit, New Jersey. He is a former Algonian, the son of Byron Richardson, and I knew her as a freshman at Iowa State College. They, and 1 too, hope they'll visit here next summer. John and Elaine Bishop are having a wonderful Christmas with their little Ellen at Pittsburgh, Penna. * * - * # OTTO B. LAING WROTE that they get many a chuckle from this column and he sent an account of the "breaking of the pinata" custom at Bryant School. The children heard about the custom from their Spanish classes over Mason City KGLO-TV. Senor Siquero gave them directions for making the pinuta — a huge balloon covered with paper. After the paper dries, the balloon is pricked and the gifts inserted. The pinata is hung by wire, the children blindfolded, and when a lucky child breaks it with >a stick, the sweets fall out and are distributed among the guests. I had a child working on the "pinata committee' 1 , so I, 'too, have been excited about it, * # * * I AM CONVINCED THAT CHRISTMAS would be well, worthwhile if it weren't for any other reason that it is the lime when old friends renew acquaintances. I hope you will have that and much more, also. — GRACE. CELEBRATE NEW YEAR'S EVE, DEC. 31 AT HAND'S PARK - FAIRMONT Hat, Horn* and Fun - ANDY LAWIINCi Orchestra - Admission $1.10
