A package from licr rame before' thp note and I laiessed p ;l per napkins from the M/.e .Mid weight of the paeka^e. 1 hen her note sort of verified 1 mv f;uess. tho' I haven't opened it yi't. Her note says, "I am sending jour Christmas gift early. You may \v;ml to use them dtu'in" the holidays." From Ed and Gwiievc' (.-enrich, LOUR l.k'aeh, Calif., c-anif a card with a lovely view of Tlc.'tlili.'liein and some flowers from the Holy Land pasted thereon. * * • ^ Princilli Loss' birlhday was observed today with a cake, the birlhday SOUR and visits from friends. Ovr.-r here at Good Samaritan, of course. * * * Yes indeed, Christmas is coming. Carolers from the Regular Map! 1st church Sunday evening, Doc. 11, the Sunday School class. "f Until Lewis. A fine group of youngsters a mont; whom were three sisters who might, pass as 'triplets, Violet, Louise and Jennie Schell. They left paper wreaths fur- us and showed us lanterns 'I hey had made. * * * Mrs. Larson's third grade Bry- .m I children wore here Tuesday a!'tcrnoon. They left paper Chrisl- trees and I was favored with a cute little decoration of small pine cones, evergreen wild a red catidle in 'the center. I asked them what they wanted for Christmas. Much KI my surprise 1 dolls were not favored. Skates had a few taker. 1 .; and skiis drew a lot of raised hands. •-.< * * Mrs. Larson introduced me to Jack Waller. I. told him to go home and tell his lather he saw me SLAVING at my desk for the good of his parent' I doubt if he knew what I was talking abuut, and who could blame him. •:< * * Maude Dorweiler was getting over the flu when I talked with her. .She said a cousin in New Zealand had written she was just getting over it. We wondered if the bug got around that fust and so far. One world, eh? *•'•• •• * • •*> ' -••*• •'•.... •»Gayle Zender and I had such a good talk about "ye olde tymes' 1 fresh side pork 'and pancakes I'oi* breakfast, our own milk and cream ami homemade butter, home butchered meats, bobsled rides, kitchen ranges, and oh-evcr so many 'things. * ili X< Grace Jackman and Alice Ditsworth (Cruikshank sisters) called on me the -other day. We went back a good many years ito talk i'.boul this and that. Alice brought me the November issue of "Ari- /.onw Highways" and a map of Phoenix and adjoining area. I locu'led Apache Junction where Charley and Mabel Livingston live. Alice and I have a mutual friend in Phoenix, Florence Patterson Howard. + * * Two revivals I enjoyed hearing recently, Lawrence Welk, "Alone" — "All Alone" I guess is the right name. And on another program, "Put Your Arms Around Me, Honey". * * * This won't be in print lill after Christmas so a. good many people around town will know before •this that Mr and Mrs Howard Beards ley went to Austin, Tex/ to spend the holidays with their son Charles and family. They were joined by the daughter Mararet, of Maryland. And Helen Dingley was with her sister Zaida and husband Bill Nugent at Des Moinc-s. * * * December 15 — More interesting mail from Sherman and F.stfile Little whom I mentioned in connection with the Chester Schobys and their meeting in Chicago recently. The Littles were glad to have-the issue of the paper And thank you. my dear friends, for the Christmas gift. * * * Mrs. Boekelman's Cub Scouts paid us a visit Wednesday after- iKi'Hi followed by the Presbyterian youth group that evening. Anil to these cnioleis were added teenagers from the Lutheran church at Titonka who gave each resident a little plate of Christmas cookies and fruit. 4 * * There is noise from the kitchen area as improvements are being made. 1 haven't inspected it yet but intend to soon and will re- poi t. * * * More mail — A note from the C. L. Livingstons of Phoenix, Arix. another from the Horace Kings of Sunnyvale, Calif., which reads in .part, "Horace is sitting by the tire. I'm not even sure he is awake. He does enjoy -the fireplace so much and spends a lot of lime cutting wood for it." Maybe he was waiting for Santa to come down the chimney. Greetings from the Paul Ostwinkles. A happy holiday to you and the family too, Theresa. A message from Edna Winslow Stebbins of Pomona, Calif. For 18 years she had been employed at a men's ready-to-wear shop and retired a few years ago except at the holidays when her help js needed. The store has been in business 50 years, she said. She will be well remembered hare. It was not long ago she visited here and spent much of her lime with Mrs. Mary Miller and Twilla Bartholomew, and others of the family. Her daughter Leota married my cousin Melvin Henderson. From Davenport came greetings from Abner and Blanche Long. And from Elizabeth Howe. Atlantic. She lived here a number of years ago and her late husband Carl was American Express agcrut. Perhaps the sons Bob and Donald will be remembered. * * * More carolers were here Friday evening, a group from St. Cecelia accompanied by Mrs. James Utl, Mrs. John Sterba, Mrs. L. J. Cassel and Mrs. Louis Reilly. Thank you, children. * * * > I've known Mrs. Don- Nelson for some lime but aiUcr a chat Saturday I feel much better ac- "flframft'd. We have-mutual:friends- Julius and Ethel Johnson, Humboldt, and believe it or not, Julius' mother and Don's father were haVf-brother and sister. The son Merlin Johnson married Mrs. Nelson's sister Gertrude. Isn'l it odd how we pick up bits of interesting knowledge and fit' them into a sort of jig-saw puzzle? * * * Take Zelba Maxwell and Leota Geigel for further example. Through their interests' and membership in D.A.R. they found lhat way back they are descendants of a Jewett family which makes them relatives way, way back. * * * Thank you, junior and intermediate Sunday school young folks of the Methodist church for the cookies delivered to me, Saturday. * * if Leota Geigel told me she and »Fred had Christinas greetings from W. II. Stone, West Allis, Wis. lie wii's manual training 'teacher here a number of years ago, and Leota' believes he was the first teacher of that kind. * * * This fellow will get a lot of sympathy. A harrussed father with three lively children in-, tow paused before a "Deposit your litter here" sign in one of our western state parks. With a heart- fell sigh he turned and said, "Don't think I'm nol tempted." How's this for family life? The father was absorbed in his favorite T.V. program and junior was doing his home work. "Dad" he ", "Where are the A.lps?" "Ask vour mother," replied dad, "She puts everything away." * ft * Mrs. Opal Ankenbauer, who is employed by Harry Godden at the monument works, had a telephone cull from him Monday morning inquiring about the weather. He drove to Staten Island, N. Y. before Thanksgiving and is visiting his son-in-law and daughter Dr. and Mrs. Robert, Liieev. He said he would not. be back till after Christmas as everything, was snowed in out there. The recent airplane tragedy happened quite 1 close to where he is visiting and just missed the school attended by his grandchildren. He took many pictures and the horror of the accident slays uppermost in the minds of Staten Islanders. Mr. Godden had previously planned to be in California for Christmas with another son-in-law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. Tom Rabun. * * * "••Mrs. Nell Potter had two celebrations of her birlhday, one a coffee Saturday, Dec. 17. and a family dinner Sunday. Among the guests Sunday wer,e ,_Mrs Ray Stump, Dunnell, Minn.,' and Mrs Gene Amlcy, New .Richmond, Minn.
