Tidbits by Evelyn My chat with Mrs Georgo Balluff the other day was most fruitful. Mrs Balluff remarked that she has cooked for Don 1 Ameche who married Honoro Pendergast of Dubuque, home town of Mrs Balluff. Honore's sister, Clair Pendergast was Mrs Balluff's home "ec" teacher and one day Mr and Mrs Ameche visited school and' were served apple sauce that Mrs Balluff then about seven years old, had helped prepare. My closer on Mrs : , Balluff is that when she read "G. S." in my column she said to herself, "What does SHE know about Girl Scouts. Then it 'dawned on her I meant Good, Samaritan. * * * Vacationers are coming home like the robins, and all report •wonderful times. Dr. and Mrs John Kenefick are back from a trip via plane to New Orleans and from there they flew to Miami. They also visited Mr and Mrg "Dutch" Lorenz. They had expected to join Mr and Mrs Gaylord Shumwayi but plans were changed which made the meeting impossible. Mr and Mrs Fred Kent are home again. They too were at Pompano Beach. The Harold Cowans also chose Florida and have returned home, too. The Rents returned via plane but I don't know what transportation the Cowans used. The Keneficks came via plane and Mrs K. said it takes but five and a half hours flying time. * * * Mr and Mrs Walter Zentner 1 returned Friday from a two weeks visit at Fort Plood, Tex., ' with their son-in-law and daugh' 1 ter, M/Sgt. and,Mrs C.

"Pat" |Sr., is a son of Mrs Catherine Mcf Enroe and the late John McEnroe of .Algona. w # * The family of the "Champ" Martins keeps them "in stitches" and Paul, the two year old, is the latest to have "embroidery" done by a surgical needle with a doctor at the other end of it. He was at play Monday forenoon and stumbled against the corner of a table. A cut required six stitches. Luckily it'is not a serious injury. Bob and David have contributed to the family excitement at various times and such accidents have happened so frequently Mrs Martin' is able to take it in stride. * * * News from Good Samaritan. Mrs Agnes Laidley joined us as a resident Wednesday. My regret is that she is on second floor and I am on first; we can' only send messages back and forth. I met Mrs Laidley years ago when she was Kossuth county recorder. For years I have counted her and her daugther Marg (Mrs Milton Dahl) as very close friends. Add to them Mrs Lulu Hartshorn and daughter Genevieve and my mother and I and you have a sex- tette it was hard to beat for fun and card games. * » * Gottlieb Hanselman is quite a new resident here. His birthday, the 76th was Wednesday and it was also their fifty-first wedding anniversary. His wife came to spend the afternoon with him and brought a birthday cake. He also received some flowers and I believe other relatives visited him.

Now I don't mean Mrs Ogren has no 31-ains. I mean Mrs Ogren is trictly domestic and it would never occur to ' her to pilot a >lane. It is about all she can do ,o ride in one, much less "drive" one. Mrs Alger, 55, and a grandmother, became a pilot 14 months ago and was named Indianapolis' outstanding woman of 1958. Her lusband also flies but she haa ;he edge on him. She has a icense to fly over the Rockies, which he does not. He says, "Oh, let her to the "driving" and I'll ride with her". Mrs Alger is a former school teacher and last July competed in the National Powder Puff derby. * * * . A card from Marie Hawcott pictured the Santa Anita race track. I was glad to get it for I have been there and it was like greeting an old friend and also greetings from old friends, Marie, Bess and Lee Hopkins. » * « My cousin Melvin Henderson gives my boss credit for careful readings of my efforts, for he had added a note in a recent letter concerning Algona and the Iowa football "Hawks."
