If the cat had confined her clawing ;q trees and outside things, Willie would probably have kept ier, but Mrs Cat wasn't a bit s^rticuiar where she sharpened ier claws, and after all, ,a housewife does not want her uphols- jered furniture ruined just so the jnouse'Can be better attacked, .Or Svhatever purpose it is cats manicure claws. «•;. There is so much news during the holidays it is hard to catch up Svith all the goings and comings. "So while it is a bit late, it is still of interest that the Bett Wibben family was in California a couple >f weeks and visited Mr and Mrs _Henry> DeWaal at Escondido and 3iev. G. J. Gerike's 'son-in-lav, •$nd daughter Mr and Mrs Robert J3rown at El Cajon. En route 3iome they.'stopped at Phoenix, "&riz., to visit Mr and Mrs Richlard Gross. One of the highlights •for the children was the trip to ^Disneyland. " - " Mr and Mrs Waller Zentner •have been visited by the letter's father Walter Dalley, Minneapolis. He made the trip in an flu to he recently purchased, jvhich is not an Unusual thing, «but what makes it worthy of note 3s that he is 86 years old and'was .granted, a license with no parti- •cular questions asked. Mrs Zent- "iier is a little uneasy about it, for 'after all, at 86 one's reflexes and •yision are not what they used to t * ' * J; This is a true story aboul Iwo •little boys. One had been running "jjcross a neighbor's yard. The 'Child was asked not to do it as JSjt was trespassing. In church af- rterward, the child took note of' "the "forgive us our trespasses" .and said to a playmate," It is al•right now because I said "forgive jjs". The second child was ier ref]f£t||iJ!.- r &fdjf "Well. I'm all light. IVdb'n't have any debts." • ^ V * * ' * Another real story is aboul a "little fellow,, who when asked *what the sermon was about, re-plied, "Oh, something about %U4lt." The subject was actually Sibout the "Comforter." *• * • • * f Afler all my lender love and Stare for my birds and daily feed- "fngs over some- months, I forgol "{hem at supper time on a cold •end blustery day, just when 'jnost needed.

A "birthday cake was taken for the "honoree and Rebecca was especi- •ally interested in singing "Happy •Birthday, Dear great-grandma." • < * e , Good Samaritan Home was Jiuite a gay place last week. Three partis were in progress one afternoon-the birthdays of Henry Jrohling and Patricia Groen "were observed and at the same ..time my room was full of pot- «iuck luncheon guests. Friday, the "sixtieth wedding anniversary of Mr and Mrs Ticman was obser •Ved. How quickly a room over "here becomes home. • • » " My mail this week has been Interesting and from well-known persons, Algonans. for the mosl 5>art. A card from the Ralph Mil- •lers, who had taken a trip fron Brownsville. Tex., where the> lare spending the winter, to Mexico. They report the weather as J)Satrtifai<'*l'hey can consider .hemseSves <!ucky at not beirlg here this disagreeable, stormy in* giliaF daj«. A Cjjrd from Hazel sb'y : who Is.

It might be of Interest to older Algonans that Myrtle Pel- leymouriter, who married T, Y. Williams many years ago and was widowed several years, has re-married and is now Mrs Frank Malony, of Chicago, but spend the winters in Florida. Years ago she taught English at Cornell college and is a sister of my late aunt, Mary Henderson. '••'.'- »' ' * "•...• Yes, I .watched the inaugural and recalled that it was a very cold day when Ike took office. Rememb,er they explained the chairs were heated electrically? Or was it the floors? « « * Odd names department — Mr and Mrs G. W. Naylor have been visited by Mrs Naylor's brother Waller Rodenbush ahd brother- irt-law, Tom Northeast. No fool- in'. They are from Oxbow, Sas- ketchewan, Can. .Added to the oddity is the Naylors live on East North street. A little of the glow of a couple of callers Sunday rubbed off on me and I was told of the plans of the pair wedded less than two hours. Meet Mr and Mrs Ray McWhorter! Mrs McWhorter is the former Luella E. Schenck. The Schencks and McWhorters have been neighbors and friends many years. The wedding took place in the Good Hope Methodist church, Sunday at 2 p.m., January 22, the Rev. Routh officiating. Attendants were Mi and Mrs Everett Hanna, of Lone Rock. Guests present were the bride's son and daughter-in-law Mr and Mrs James Schenck, of Waterloo, the bridegroom's son- in-law and daughter Mr and Mrs Frank Becker and five children, and Mr and tyfs Alfred^ Schen^, Besides eallirtf on/ : rne) Mf aHct Mrs McWhorter called on the atirit Mrs Mattie. McWhBfter. They left from here 'for points south Which Will include £ Visit ivith Mr and Mrs Ward McWhorter at Rogers, Ark.,.'and at Memphis, Tenrt., with Capt. and Mrs Earl C. Rockworth. Hay added "We'll probably wind up in, ACu- pulco, Mex." Mrs Ward McWhorter is the former Gladys Claytpny daughter of the late Mr and Mrs A. E. Clayton. Capt. Rockworth is a senior pilot with Delta airlines and became interested in flying many years ago when Ray was identified with planes. Ir>- cidentaly, Ray remarked, "My wife likes to fly too so we'll be doing a lot of it." Another stop will be made at Lockport, Tex., to visit Lois Schenck and her hus band Gene Whitmore. Congratulations and best wishes, Mr and Mrs McWhorter. It seems quit a long time since Christmas and to Mary Lapih, Minneapolis, it probably seems a century. She was severely burned on the arms when an explosion occurred when she was making some big Christmas candles. Her sister Mrs Alice Laden- dorff has been with her awhile assisting Jtt household, autieSr . 4 - * - r / ^ -'' - ' "* '* The old saying "Wbtlbles jfteW* come singley" seems to hold true with Glen Raney. Shortly after the death of his wife Ruth last August, he went to Dvibuque! to be with his son-in-law and daughter, Bob ahd Meredith Holzhammer. Then he had a session in the hospital, surgery — and then back again for almost 6 Week for treatment of post-stu^ gery adhesions. A loss of 17 pounds puts him in the featherweight class, for Glen was not a large man to begin with. Best wishes Glen, and I hope you will soon be in good health. . ; Cresco Chums Cresco Chums held their January meeting at the Kenneth Roethler ^ home. Sheila Frideres and Susan Johnson talked.
