,--11 - "• Tidbits by Evelyn The interesting part of an item ,was deleted recently. To say I heard the name Karen Wool- drddge over Mason City T.V. and that she,is a niece of Mrs Henry" furst was a small part of it. The real story is that she was awarded $25 in a "driver x»f the Mon,th" contest. The award was made for her assists nee'in an accident involving another car and it's .passenger — no part of it having 16 do with Miss Wooldridge. She simply gave aid. * • » * Everyone is familiar with Friendship Haven at Fort Dodge, the Methodist home for retired """"^'•""*"=«"^^"'^'^" - "»™™»^ LARRY'S RECREATION IS ReDikAlus THIS COUPON ENTITLES BEARER TO: Oi CREDIT On 6-Paclc Of Beer CREDIT On Case Of Beer FRIDAY & SATURDAY ONLY LARRY'S SPESHUL ! persons.

FRESfl-AIR ECONOMY Get the most in 'central air- conditioning, with natural gas! Cool your home comfortably in hot weather... make it cozy and warm in cold weather. A gas air-conditioner heats, cools, filters, circulates, de-humidifies the air — all with a single unit! And it won't ru/t u.p expensive maintenance bills; it has no moving parts, nothing to wear out! Enjoy a, new way of life ,,, install a gas air-conditioner from your local gas company or gas appll- once dealer, QUICK DISGUISE Even the tiniest scratches on furniture don't look good! Lady I know purchased several colored pencils to match her furniture, She applies the soft, waxy lead to the scratched area. She then buffs it down with a cloth; finishes with a wax or polish shine. There's a wide variety of colored pencils, even some made specifically for furniture. You're sure to find ones to camouflage scratches on your blonde TV set, jnaho-, gany dress or maple \\ table. *~' POTATO SALAD TRIUMPH New twist to an old.favorite: Cook 6 medium sized potatoes _ in salted water, with their jackets on.

We can call ourselves lucky, with such a perfect fuel.available in great quantities beneath the surface of the earth, Another happy thought: You can always depend on Northern Natural Gas Company to keep piping gas to your local gas company... who pipes it into your home, to enrich family living and leisure, Fifty years a§o we were astonished at the horseless carriage and we have gone through a series of innovations so far as automobiles are concerned. We have reached .the point where they surely are "-the most," But' when a caller comes in his own private plane, well that adds another story to progress and travel facilities. Mr and Mrs Adrian Sterling were recently visited by Howard Westphal of Oak Park, 111., who formerly *4ived here and was employed by the Swift Co. He made his home with the Sterlings. He said, upon arrival, that it suddenly came over him that a visit with the Sterlings was just whait he needed, so he go>t in hia plane, drove out and then phoned his wife that he wouldn't be home to dinner — he was staying over night with Algona fripnds. Just, ike that! Nonchalance to the lighest degree. * * » A (note from Edna St|abbints informed me she will be .in Algona about July 11. I shall be very happy to see her. She is the former Edna Winslow and has lived in Pomona,' Calif., many years. She flew to Dayton, Ohio to visit her sister Margaret (Mrs Ross) and bolih will be here en- route to Minneapolis. Both will be very well remembered. * * . » I was quite bowled over Fri day when a caller dropped in whom I haven't seen tn '^years It was Karel Horan who has livec in Los Angeles many years but is now living in Minneapolis. He is vice president of the Washington tool and machine works and had been in a similar business in California. His parents anc brother, Mr and Mrs W. H. Horan and Clemmer will be well remembered. Mr Horan was ar electrician. Clemmer lives Hollywood and is not in,gbp| health. Mr and Mrs Horan have been deceased for several years He has never liked the name Karel and his cards read the name he prefei's, Maurice K. Horan. * * * Our trays had cute lilile favors July 4th. I haven't learned yet who gave them. They were fire* crackers made of red card board) had pipe cleaner fuses, white cotton. tops which lifted up as lids and mints were in the interior. * » • * The John Paul Jones I am about to write a comment on may not be as famous as the John Paul Jones of American history, 3ut he is far dearer to Mrs Bessie Jones. He is her grandson, and like his famous namesake, is with the- navy. What else could he do with that name? , He is stationed at Nonfblk, Va., and was recently here to visit his grandmother. - , * * * On a recent visit to a local bank Frank Vera remarked to one of the charming women who weC waiting on him that he was going my room here at Good Samaritan. Years ago when this home was owned and occupied by Mr and Mrs Ambrose Call, my room wan the library. The woodwork in the room is cherry and is beautifully preserved. For a quarter of a century a bookcase which belonged in this room has been stored in Dr. A. J. Eason's office. Chester Call, son of the Ambrose Calls, came into possession of the case and not caring for it, had it stored. What ever links come between, 1 don't know. At any rale, Dr. Eason had the right to dispose of it as he saw fit. One look at it and Frank succumbed. It is now his by right of purchase and he has it in his home. He was afraid his' wife Ha/el might throw both him and ihc _book- casc out but she took to it immediately too and it now reposes in a prominent place in their living room . Frank's description of it intrigues me greatly and 1 moan to go sec it one of these days. weeks ago.
