' * * » When I talked with Nell Norton recently and she told me about the trip she and Mil ton had taken to Midland, Tex., to visit Milton's son and daughter* in-law, Dr. and Mrs Richard Norton, I asked her if they saw Walter Beardsley. She said, "Oh yes indeed. We were dinner guests. lh*fe aM had a hiefe visit* .'

My information came from the father, J. I. Merryman, and was verified by Maxine'Merryman in a further conversation, both of whom -mentioned Mrs Merryman and .her recent shedding of a cast on her beck. She suffered a broken back in a fall thirteen weeks ago. This make's three leg breaks and one back break in a period of just a few years. And he still keeps her chin high.

The gifts are greatly appreciated. * * * Women of the Congregational Fellowship have a-'fine idea of preparedness. Every Monday afternoon • they meet at the church and sew for' the bazaar which will be held next November. It seems a long time ahead, but a project like that needs plenty of preparation of fancy work and novelties; Mrs James Boyd had charge of the January meetings when aprons were made. Mrs O. B. Kinden was head of the February meetings with linens as the projects. Mra Raymond Reed'is chairman for March and toys are being made. The rest of the agenda is not completed but it will go along, in an orderly manner. * * * I have mentioned vacations and trips but Margaret Herbst's would aart Is by no means lost-the cardinals are there to nt the leavings and love it. • * - * * •* I am not a collector, but to those who arc, here is information they will find interesting.

Mr and Mrs Fred Will and Mr and Mrs Louis Hackbarth drove to Cylinder for some family festivities. Enroute home the snow was so heavy on the windshield it \ broke the wiper and they crawled to town just trusting to the feel of the road. The teenage John McNolll sons had heard stories from their companions about being caught in storms and they wished they could have some experiences. They did. To get home they followed tht* road by the weeds by the roadside, barely visible, for guidance on the highway. When they reached their driveway, it was impossible to get in. They had to gel out the tractor to clear the way and got the car to the house, By the time they had struggled in tho snow and wind, they'd probably had all the experience they wanted. * * * Ada Malueg has returned from Chicago where she spent three weeks with ,her son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Kemper Huber and family. They were gone a part of the time and she stayed with the children while the parents were in Atlantic City. * * * Mr and Mrs Jess Lashbrook enjoyed their winter vacation very much but Mrs Lashbrook sayn she likes Iowa better.

Her mother, Mrs Kenneth Lacey, Highland Park, 111., has taken her daughter, Mrs Herbst and Mrs Schmidt to Hawaii. Margaret met them at Omaha, having been taken .there by her husband, and flew to Los Angeles. This is strictly a "hen party", so the following day the travelers were met at • lunch by Mrs Nicholas Furjanick, nee Priscilla^ Southgate, and Mrs Paul Southgate, aunts of Ted. Later that day the three women took an ocean liner for Hawaii. Margaret plans to be gone two weeks but the others will stay longer. She will make the return trip via plane to Minneapolis, Minn., and will be met there by Ted and the little daughters Lori and Terri. They will visit Ted's brother and sister-in-law, Mr and Mrs Joel Herbst and I believe Olive (mother of Ted and Joel) said they would see Mr and Mrs Charles Stevenson, son and daughter-in- law of Olive. * * + I look outside at the Ions and. tons of snow, then look at the pictures of spots in Florida sent from Pompano Beach by Clyta Kent and decide I'd much rathei) be where she is. Then I look at the card sent by Hazel Miller from Mexico, and a trip there wouldn't be so bad, either. Thank you, girls, for remembering me back here in the cold, cold north. * * * Mabel and Roy Hutzell are going to take a trip and I'd like to be with them. They are going to Washington D. C. to visit their son and daughter-in-law, Mr 'and Mrs Fred Hutzell*and daughters. They will be gone till just before Palm Sunday.

In fact the little- fellow make/ himself at home at meal time at the Bor- ehardt ' feeder, along with some cardinals; Mrs Towne had an amusing story about squirrels. Gail puts out ears of corn but has founded the little smarties carry off the ear, and if tied with string, •cliew that & away with the corn, So he out-smarts them and wires the ears. They sit there and nibble the ears kernel by kernel, tak ing out the part they like, the centers J imagine. But the other C, D. of A.

They now weigh and 6 pounds respectively. She didn't say what they were named I am curious about that. * » * Ask any parents — "It now costs more to amuse a child than it once did to educate his father. * * * ,, After writing this and giymg what was correct information''& far as plans were concerned, learned there was a' change a the last moment.

Among the many visitors was her son Leonard of Florida. * * « I wonder how long before Iho snow will be melted enough for .the squirrels to find the nut meats I had Velma Hagg dump, near the north steps.
