•*•>•. r -• Tidbits by Evelyn Many <sf us wbuld like io du» plicate the vacation Renon Cole is having for the Orient has much charm and allure. Renon will be- well remembered by the middle aged residents. Renon married Mr Sutcliffe, who died a number of years ago. Renon has made her home in San Francisco, but was here last fall and was a guest of Mr and Mrs W, B. Nugent in Des Moines. Many Al- gonans will also remember the late Ambrose Bowyer. His widow, Gladys, and Renon are touring Japfan together. *- ••'.» . » . 1 caught the name Karen Woolridge over Mason City TAT. Thursday evening and it rang a .bell. She is a niece of Mrs Henry Furst. * * * If you noticed the corners of Frank Vora's mouth drooping it is because he is sad. And why is he sad? Because he had a letter from his grandsons Ted and Joe Hutchinson, of Phoenix, Ariz, telling him they are £ad. And why are they sad? Because their Manchester dog Frank gave the'm got killed. Well, the corners of Frank's mouth turned up as he told the tale and he added he has written to mother Elvie'tell- ing her tp buy another Manchester and send the bill to him Grandchildren have winning ways, in more than one sense 1 * , * * Thanks to Mrs John Kenefick I have lovely flowers in my room again — roses of various colors, and so fragrant. All flowers are beautiful but the roses reign as queens, in my estimation. Among the 92 names listed of the new members of the bar honored at Iowa City Friday was Patrick Arnold Cady, son of Mrs Julia' Cady and the late Dr. G. W. Cady, Mason City. Dr. Cady tvas my cousin, son of "Pat" Cady, former resident here. * * * There is a Lutheran home for the aged at Madrid and a week ago Sunday six'women from tho local First Lutheran ohurch went there to serve at a tea. They were Mrs Hilda Gronwall, Mrs Pete Halsrud, Mrs Anne Presthiis, Mrs Christine Spongberg, Alma Carlson and Ellen Carlson. # W * When Ruth Lewis told me she and Jerry have had quinsy, I thought of my grandmother Cady who had it so frequently wheti she ttved in Ohio. .Quinsy is. a painful inflamation of the throat. I wonder if doctors of the present would call it a virus? t have heard of a novel enter- ainment for young engaged couples — a shower, given for both >arties by couples. Such a shower was given recently at a place not too distant. Since the couple will be farming, the theme of the decorations was the farm and the refreshments were carried out In the same way — even to chicken sandwiches artd candy corn. The Wed At Wesley gifts Were placed in small wagons and brought by younsters tractors to the table where the bride-elect and groom-elect open* ed them. This theme would be an MOTOR REPflIRS Large Stock of REPLACEMENT PARTS On Hand Prompt Service At All Times Service Motors Available For Emergency Use PRATT ELECTRIC CO.

Mrs Jack Limbnugh told me recently about her father Wyhn Baier getting a toe cut off in a rotary power mower and her mother at about the same time had the tip of a finger nipped off in an'electric mixer. The mechanical age is wonderful — BUT — well/let's be careful. * * •* I have heard of butter being use'd to clean the leaves of ivy or philadendron but another way which is even better — use a cloth dipped in milk. My yards and yards of philadendron have lust been gone over with the milk bath and it looks so nico and shiny now. * * * Mrs Fred Geigel gave a tea Saturday afternoon honoring Mrs Kruse, nee Irene Miller of Pasadena, Calif. She is a former resident here and has a sister Vivian, also of Pasadena. They are daughters of the late Mr and Mrs R. H. Miller, .the former of whom was a druggist and occupied the present Thuente place of business. Other guests were classmates, year 1913, Ruby Skilling now Mrs Frank Thorpe, Ames, Yarda Nelson, now Mrs Lyle Ellis, Hartford, Conn., Ruth McClellan, now 'Mrs Glen Raney, Mrs Leonard Hays, nee Ann Geigel, Mitchell, Neb., was also honored and her classmates who were guests were Cora Ferguson, now Mrs Frank .Sterling, Netha French, now Mrs Lyle ' Mathes, June Corey now Mrs Roscoe Mawdsley, teacher Mabel Waterbury now Mrs Dana Paxson and teacher Hortense Smith now Mrs W.

Mr land Mrs Frank Sterling have had a recent letter from ;heir son-in-law and daughter, Blaine and Joyce Nelson and little daughter Lori who have concluded a visit here and sailed Friday from New York City for their home at Aruba, the Netherlands Antilles. F r a nk is getting along nicely at the Veterans hospital, Des Moines, and perhaps is home by the time ithis reaches print. * * * We get prettier and prettier over here at Good Samaritan — the building I.mean, with the sprinkling system completed, the stairs have been recovered and now fldurescenf lights have been installed in the halls. It is so nice and light now, a real boon ito callers as well v as the busy nurses. Larry Winter Of Lakota Is Wed June 7 Mr and Mrs Jpmes Reising, whose wedding took place June 8, are shown in the above picture. The bride is a daughter of Mr'and Mrs Edward Downs of Wesley and the bridegroom is a son of Mr and Mrs Andrew Reising.

She lives at Rock Creek, Minn. She mentions her son Roy whom 1 do know. He married one of the Kuchynka girls, Phyllis to be exact, and lives in California. Mrs J. I. Merryman is a friend of Mayor and Mrs Orville Don- nalson, Milford, who were here at a recent meeting of mayors and- Gov. Loveless was guest speaker. The Donnalsons called on Mrs Merryman, a resident of Milford years ago. With them were Mrs Frieda Mauss and Mrs Freda Nichol, friends of Mrs. Merryman, with whom a club was organized years ago. It was called the REAL BARGAINS IN GOOD USED TYPEWRITERS Thanks to Beth Anriis, I have become acquainted with a magazine I,never knew existed. It is "Ebony." The ads have colored people as models, and only a few whites are shown. One in particular is Raymond Burr, white, shown with Pearl Bailey, colored', in tha interests of an orphanage. I was interested seeing Pearl Bailey and husband Louis Bellson with their adopted son Tony. Tony is an attractive colored lad but Bellson as everyone knows is white. It seems strange to read ads for hair straightener when other magazines have only hair curlers advertised. s * * Pity poor pa — Woman pushing baby cab with top down — "This is the convertible he promised me after marriage." * * * Mr and Mrs Walter McBride and sons Carl, Dale and Donnio are home from a family reunion, at Centralia, Mo., held at llio home of the mother, Mrs Ella McBride, 84. Mrs Sally Roberta of GHdden, mother of Mrs McBride, accompanied them. * * * Mrs Clyiie Roepke, resident here at G.S. had as callers Monday Mr and Mrs P. I. Loomer of 'Britt. * * * When I knew Larry Pool years ago h<^ was a little curly tow- haired child attending the Methodist church with his parents, Mr and Mrs Lloyd Pool, little did. I dream he would ever reach the heights he has. I'd have said he'd follow agriculture, in his father's foot&teps. Instead he turned to music, is a professional singer, married an actress of some repute loo, and both arc rated highly. Mrs Pool has been here on a visit and her sister- in-law, Mrs 'James Newell has been here from Tulsa, Okla. It might be well to mention they spend quite a lot of time with the grandmother, Mrs Emma Pool. Not long ago Mrs Lloyd Pool and daughter. Mrs Newell came to call on Mrs Anna McQuaid at G.S. With them they had a record made by Larry which was played on Mrs McQuaid'a record player. I'd lilte to have heard it too. patrol. There is a 1 son Tom, 16, who was busy playing ball that duy.

No* whom —. WHAT. For thirty- five years they have enjoyed martins and have given them deluxe treatment. Now along come bluejays and sparrows to rout the martins from the abodes, the sneaky things, and Glen threatens to go gunning for the agressors. I hope your aim is good Glen. Power to you.
