Susan is the daughter of 'Mrs Imogene McAtee and Diane is a daughter of Mr and Mrs William Allen. They brought me a nice bouquet of lilac?, apple blossoms and bluebells. What interesting little girls, good conversationalists, and enthusiastic over the summer activities which will include band music lessons, swimming lessons, Bible school, choir practice, "and plenty of just plain FUN, * * * • Callers 181 and 182 were Mrs Alwin Huenhold and Mrs August Huenhold. Mr Huenhold is now at G. S. At ninty-two he is frail and bedfast. I can recall so well his beginnings as a gardnei back years ago. He had a car.' and single horse and went up and down the streets selling his vegetables and berries. We were egular customers. Gradually he expanded the business to more greenhouse products than garden and he has been very successful Assisted by the two sons, one o whom died tragically a few year ago, he has acquired a very sue cessful business. He 'retired few years ago earning a wei deserved relaxation.-^ * * * Nellie Van AUen has earned a rest period tpo. After thirty- one years with the Christensen store,' she retired May 1. That doesn't mean she sits idly twirling her thumbs, she is too ambitious for that, but it does mean her time is her own. If all the garments she has sewn and remodeled were laid end to end, they'd probably reach farther than even she can imagine. * * * Another person who has earned a respite is Mrs Ella Briggs. Besides managing a home and raising a family of five, she has ttt and MM B6b JrehnUeti tiirtt been visited by Helen** nephtw, Harold PfldRet of Tatomm Wft»h. Her mother, Kmma Padgel was here on si visit lost summer. Hi* father died many year* ago. Marold 5s in service and will soon be leaving for two years in Chinfc.

Mrs Harvey Johnson and Mrs Ted Hoover Jr. were awarded pins and life member certificates at a meeting in the Doan church recently. I believe it is 25 years ago the new'order came into being, and I think could name several charter members in the Algona church.
