Weliiie, we do have a big black torn cat named Blackle. We had hlM.betdre he dog died, but the cat didn't hold a place of much Importance until the tragedy. He now occupies a Jslace In the kida* affection, where they esteem him a little less than they do their father, e 'itlle more than they do their mother, and upon occasion, a whole ot more than they do each other. However, the cat is an oppor* lunist, and likes best whichever family member he can get the most out of at the moment. * * * WE'VE HAD SOME BAD LUCK with cats. Blackie Is our !hird since last fall. Bill Geering gave the kids such a cute Angora type one and just as the kids were becoming attached to it, she went outside one evening and disappeared without a trace. Her successor was another female, black with a white face and lopsided whiskers. She, too, went A. W. O. L. The Kent Seeleys. ,who seem lo have a surplus of cats on their farm, gave us BJackie, her brother, as a replacement. He is black as the ace of spades,'slithery as a snake, and I suspect him of having the heart of a Lucifer, tic is also quite a Don Juan. * * * BLACKIE IS MARY ANN'S CAT — at least he belongs to "her as much as any cat belongs to any person, She lavishes affection on the animal. One morning Mary Ann came home from spendini the night with a girl friend; I heard her say, "Am I ever glad to get back to you, honey". I thought she must really be glad to see me — until I looked up and .found she was speaking to the cat. However, Blackie's main affection is for his own black-hearted, self. Lakofa Junior Senii Goes Hawaiian t Lakota — The annual Junior » Sfenior Banquet was held May 8 at the Lakota School. The gym Was beautifully decorated in the Hawaiian theme, Supt. 3. W. Cook gave a short, speech, as did Principal Helvick. Sandra Apka Wrote and read the "Senior Take Off", David Ley read the Class Prophecy and Cynthia Thompson read the Class Will. Mark Eielv* orn sang "The Hawaiian Wedding Song", Roger Brack sang "Hawaiian Sunset" and little Monica Beemer enchanted everyone with. her rendition Hu!a. of the Hawaiian .. Jerry and with feat Senenfeld BLACKIE'S BEST HOURS are between J2 midnight and 4 a.m., when he seems to have all sorts of adventures, both amorous and pugilistic. When we retire for the night he is curled up in a chair, purring like a motor-boat. We no sooner get the lights out than Blackie decides to see what's cooking socially. He meows at the door for a while. Both Father v and I pretend to be asleep. The loser in the game gets up and lets the cat out, meanwhile muttering softly under his breath. i * * * IT WOULDN'T BE SO BAD if Blackie would'stay out all night long, because I am sure he can take care of himself, but he keeps returning at intervals to the comforts of home. First he tries the front door, unsuccessfully. Then he climbs up and tries to get in the kitchen window. That's usually closed so he jumps the three foot distance to our bedroom window. He squeezes through the space ibetween the storm sash and the open window, lands with a thud on our bed and proceeds Upstairs to check up" on what the daughters are doing. When we get the screens on at our house, there is going to be one really surprised cat around here! **!,*> v DURING ONE OF HIS'NOCTURNAL adventures, Blackie got into Bill's room and destroyed all his insects-which Bill had.collected! with blood, sweat and tears for his science project. Until the-insects' -were all replaced and''turned in at school, it was practically the death penalty for anyone to go into Bill's room and leave the door open. Meanwhile Blackie discovered a new route in getting in and out of the housa He bats at the latch on the back door until he gets it open. * * * ONE RAINY MORNING BLACKIE came home dripping wet. He scratched three times on the front door and then made a futile leap to our bedroom window. It was closed tight against the storm so he went back 'to the front door and scratched three more times. I let him'in, but with Blackie was the most discreptuable cat I!ve over seen. It was a soiled white, one ear hung loosely in a bloody .mess and part of its tail Was gone. I opened the door just enough to let Blackie in. The other cat scratched at the door as it had 'seen' Blackie do. No luck. Then he went around to the bedroom window and made a couple of half-heated leaps. Then, almost perceptibly, it shrugged and went away. It's hard-hearted of me I know, but I have\ a v hard enough time .putting up withk Blackie, let -.alone playing hostess to his low.rl.ife- frieffds. •g^J, f i T. •-• "- - -," <~y •-"-' W £ ' ' *• ]|t ^ iv , , WE DON'T HAVE CHAMPAGNE orgies at oUr house, but We do have quite a gay night life. After Blackie settles down to .ten or twelve hours' slumber in Mary Ann's dresser drawer, we have" our friend the woodpecker who pecks merrily on our television antennae at fpur o'clock in the morning. "Woodpeckers, I've read recently, do not peck on wood to find bugs as I've always though. They peck on anything handy to advertise for a mate! Well, this being the case, I feel 'that our woodpecker is choosing the wrong medium. He should advertise in the newspaper. Besides being more effective than television.' it is also much more silent! + * * BUZZ COWAN, SON OF KEN AND ARLA COWAN, is a fifth grader who recently niade the supreme sacrifice — he parted with several hundred -of, his treasured comic books! When Don Sherman was a patient at the Veteran's Hospital in Des Moines recently, he returned home to say that the patients there really enjoy comic book and that if anybody had any extra ones, they would be most welcome. Buzz heard about this, 'pondered it carefully and then spent an entire day sorting out the comics he could bear to part with. He ended up with 6 for himself. He packed them up with the help of his mother, took them to the post office, and parted with four weeks of his personal allowance to pay the postage fee! It was all Buzz's own idea and a truly commendable act. * * * IN THE MAIL RECENTLY WAS a letter from Mrs Kay Setchell, former Algonan now of Bonita Springs, Florida. She asked for reprints of the column on Mrs Emily Spencer and agreed with me that Emily was a truly remarkable woman. On the same subject Elaine Bishop wrote from Pittsburg, Penn., saying she also will never forget Emily. Elaine and her husband, John and Little Ellen plans to be in Iowa in June and hope to get over to Algona. TILLIE AND MARY JEAN HOOD, who have since returned from their European trip, sent me a copy of the newspaper published aboard the S. S. United States together with a picture postcard. And there was a request for a reprint of the Mother's Day column which Jack Shelley read over WHO, from Mrs Leslie Thomas of Alden. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Coconut Chiffon Pie. 1 envelope plain gelatin J A cup sugar Ys teasp. salt 3 egg yolks 1% cups milk 1 teasp. vanilla 3 /4 cup chopped, shredded coconut 3 egg whites J /4 cup sugar 1, 9 inch baked pie shell or crumb crust.
