Tidbits by Evelyn Mr and Mrs Roy Huinell returned recently from Washington, nnd Arlington where they visited their son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs Fred Hutzell, and little daughters Trudy and Judy. They were accompanied by Mabel s uncle and aunt, Mr and Mrs Ennos Ackerman of Rochester, Minn. It was quite cool in Washington, Mrs Hutzell said, but in spite of it were in bloom and trees budding fast. "Besides seeing the usual sight in Washington, they went to cinerama "South Son Adventure", and saw June Holliday in "The Bells Are Ring' ing." The latter is a stage show in "The National Theatre", the oldest in the U.S. and built in IHIiJi. Probably the most interesting thing to them was seeing the jet plane come in on which McMillan yvas a passenger. They also visited old friends Mr and Mrs Charles Bosworth near Chicago. Mr Bosworth and Roy became acquainted when both were employed with the International Harvester company. * * * Mrs Elizabeth Howe will be remembered by many here and will perhaps write to her at Memorial Hospital, Atlantic, Iowa. A recent letter from her states she is hospitalized for examina- tions and under treatment for diabites. She and her late hus-. band, Carl lived here many yearg ago and Carl was agent for the American Express company. The office then was in the shoe shop next to Dr. P. V. Janse's office. Playmates will remember Don and Bob. They will also remember a son Duane who was drownJ ed at Atlantic. To the family were also added Beverly and Joe, all grown now, married and with families. * » * Mrs John Bahr had two new granddaughters, Becky Gayle, born March C to Mr and Mrs James Bahr at Memphis, Tenn.

This item states there was a 12 inch snowfall April Fool's Day. There was the usual tales of motorists caught in the storm, a Mason City bus fought it's way from there as far as Sexton where it had to lay up.

Evelyn Hunt won a prize for her .kitchen utensils trimmed bonnet...... * * * Volma Hagg took me up town last week Monday afternoon, the first I had been out since Thanks-i giving. I don't need to tell you how I enjoyed it. I inspected both banks as I didn't get to see them last fall when the openings were held. Both are very nice, and I would have an awful time deciding which I like the better. They are a great credit to Algona. As one person remarked, "They are fine. The only trouble is keeping my money in them.'' * * * Alas, a fine gesture came to naught Wednesday when a professional friend offered me the use indefinitely of a typewriter which will not be in use, as the office has installed an electric one. But it was an upright type, difficult for me to use. I prefer the portables for one particular reason. Well, bless him anyhow. * * * Easter lilies were in abundance here at Good Samaritan, the residents being well remembered and I was given a lovely bouquet and had several callers. Our sympathy goes to Casper Thilges who lost two sisters, Mrs Mary Reding and Mrs Chris Gales in that auto accident at St. Joe.

A telephone call established the fact that there was much snow in the Rock Valley vicinity and it would be better to meet at Worthington, which was done. * * * Mr and Mrs William Dau Sr. arrived Saturday night from the Florida Keys.
