Tidbits by Fve/yn ttus C6lamti i* otieft written Several days ahead .and when I stated Mrs Harvey Thompson, of Hurt is now a resident here, I . expected she would be by the time my. copy got into print. Such is not the Case. She is still at St. Aftftt * * * Wh§tt I tead of ihe seed pieiute made, by a Mrs Richard Bachelor, I was Reminded of the seed wreath made by my aunt Em- malifie Heckart. It too had many kinds df seeds, pop corn, rice, barley; and arranged in a graceful wreath, some seeds gilded. Quite a novelty. I also had a hair .wreath rftade by my grandmother Margaret Heckart Henderson. In it were strands of hair of various relatives and friends, wound on wires and shaped into flowers. , * * - * An "important member of ihe family was missing at the recent reunion of the Earl Millers Mr Miller is working with a con* struc'tion company at Taintor some, distance from here. There wasn't time to get word to him when the son Paul and his wife ,came unexpectedly from Lake City,-Minn., but the rest of the family got together; Mr and Mrs - John Miller, Mr and Mrs Raj Lovstad, of Burt, and .Mr and Mr Bernard Miller and tffe respectivi 'families. The Paul Millers wen accompanied by Mrs Miller 1 ;mother, Mrs Wanda Doocy, of Lo Angeles, Calif. The Earl Miller ''-I am talking about lave Sout' Jerome street. 1 .. • * * # Mention of these names will take you back quite a number of , years. Matt Colford of Fort Dodge was registered at the State hotel and inquired about a Dr. Crawford, Summer Quarton and Ed Adams. Well, Dr. Crawford was associated with Dr. M. J. Kene- fick'in the old Algona hospital, now the Masonic Temple. Sumner died in an accident a short time ago and Ed Adams has been ister-hvlaw Mr and Mrs Henrv "vdams will be well remembered Mr Colford said he -and these men had been students together at Iowa University. * » , * I read this in Marian Millet's column and thought it so cute others might get a laugh. "I used 'o love my garden. But now my ove is dead. I found a bachelor's nitton in brown-eyed Susan's bed." *. * * fcick Hanson, pictured in a recent paper, is a son of Pearl Hanson here at G.S. I read it with more interest when the relationship was established. Dick, editor of the magazine "Successful Farming" will head the tour of 30 American farmers and their wives ffn a trip to Russia and six other European countries. * * * Ain't it the ttqth — "Some times a clear conscience is due only to a poor memory". Anc while on the subject of conscienc es, some must be atrophied, fo I have another tale about the meanest men, or boys. Twice th< gas tanks' of two of our nurse over here at Good Samaritai have been almost drained. It is pretty low person who steals anc Helen Hutchison and Betty Cruse) have in. mind." Since I am writing this before the event akes place, I am in the dark oo. Probably a family dinner. « * • Mr and Mrs Prank Schallin will set ,quite a record when their •sixty-fifth anniversary comes up soon, * *. •••» Word from Mahal Livingston is that, she and Charley have taken a unit at £ motel to get the benefit of an air conditioner. They have purchased a home in Phoenix, Ariz., but the demand for conditioners was so great they had io wait for one and in the meantime the heat was almost too much. * # * Another tale which reflects favor for Iowa. The Adrian Sterlings are being visited by their son-in- law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Stanley Miller (Jeanettc) anc grandchildren of Costa Mesa Calif. Rain is a luxury in California, and the past two years have been drier than usual, and usua is darned dry. The children were thrilled at the prospect of rain and said "Please let us know when it rains, in case we arc asleep." In true .grandmotherly manner, Mrs S. wakened tin children early <one morning re fnntty where there was a good downpour. "Oh, isn't it beautiful?' xciaimect. ifes, rain IS bca in a sanitarium many years.

Through this column the Kellys earned of the death of Dr. Roger Flickinger, whom they also knew and admired greatly. * * i. When I read an item vin the UDM, about D. L. Driver being njured 20 years ago by a falling, ladder, I was reminded of the time he got locked in the refrigerator at the Swift plant where he was night watchman and engineer. It was a very hot Augus' day so he was clad in light cloth ing. In making the rounds he stepped in the cooler to check. Ir some way the door closed anc since there was no way of open ing it from the inside, he was a prisoner for two or three hours He was taken to the hospital fo observation but suffered no il effects. He said he passed th< time by singing, whistling anc talking to himself. » » * We oldsters aren't very inter ested in July Fourth celebrations Mrs Morrall says she stayed home even though her son Bernard and his wife invited her to their home at Armstrong where a celebration uiv_ ( y c.Ai;itijLiit:ii.

Olive Reid has dashed here and here so much of late, she isn't uite certain where home is. It vas quite recently she returned rom a visit with relatives in Cal- fornia. Then the son Allen was raduatsjd from high school and .ad a chance to take a job with Roger Sorensen, a relative, in his arage at Burbank, Calif. He lidn't find anyone to drive out vith him so his mother hastened :o get things packed and ready ,o go with him. At Denver, Colo., they visited friends and the son Bob Junk was glad to go the rest of the way with him. This left Mrs Reid free to return home via train. * * * 'Twas a very hot day when I called Kittle Ott for news. She was in the midst of canning string beans. Reminded me of the good old days when mother and I processed quarts and quarts, d9nated by Wesley Dutton, bless him. J * * * Meda Redfield and Ruth Phillips called on me the other day. I hadn't seen Meda since she moved to Des Moines a few years ago. She likes it in Des Moines where her son Clark and family live, but she enjoys getting back to good old Algona.
