Ferguson home. Present. Were William and his wife Sye, Fairfax, Va., John and his wife and children, Fort Dodge, and Lewis and his wife. William and his wife Came July 1, driving ouf in a station wagon and lucky it was large enough to take back a prized spool bed and some other loved articles. And one other loved article" they took back with them was the John Ferguson's daughter, Nancy. Lewis was at camp in Guernsey, Wyo. with the National Guard, but f&rtunately got hom,e so a family dinner with all membors present was enjoyed July 4 at the old home. The dinner was prepared and engineered by Lewis and his Wife Heidi and of course there was a lot of reminiscing as well as lots of eating.

His wife Sue is coordinator in the main Jfeffeff store and her job is to arrange style shows given at various clubs, Bill and Sue, with Nancy as guest, left July 6 and were to stop in Wcrthlngton, Ind., to visit an aunt of Sue and to pick up some . prized furniture which had belonged to Sue's late mothen The Fergusons love the old fashioned things and have furnished their home in lovely old time pieces, restoring it according to the period in which it was built, It has taken a lot of work sntl time .to make it into what Vhey Wnnt, but it is worth every effort and every dollar. •• • » ,4 * A communication frdfn the Homer Tuttles will be of interest to Algonans. "Just a note to say we arrived at California. We had a cool week to travel ns it rained most of the way across Nebraska and Wyoming, We stayed in Sioux City one night with Mr and Mrs Burdctte Agard who were our neighbors and one night in Sutherland with Mrs Tuttle's father, G. 'A. Burrell." Wishing to give credit to friends for farewell entertainment they had listed the following — dinner guests of Mr and Mrs Frank Butts —also of the Alvin Webcrs at LuVerne, and at Mr and Mrs M. L, Vander- Walls. A pot-luck supper at Mr and Mrs Hetiry Johannesens had already been reported by me. Quoting further from the note "I am .working the Pomona Valley area for the Vernon company of Newton, Iowa, and have eight towns in my territory. It is about a 26 mile area with over 250,000 population. I can get home in less than 40 minutes from any point. We have rented a furnished apartment in Pomona and en. oy the warm days and coo! nights. We thought some folks might want to know how we are doing." * » • » I don'l know who is the mote pleased. Claude and Mabel Sam- sun to get bird Dickie back or Dickie bird to get home. II all happened this way. Dickie, a parakeet, had settled on Mabel's shoulder and she had forgotten it when she opened the door. The big, wide, wonderful world looked good to Mr Parakeet so he took off. .Mabel figured there was nothing she could do about it except call Dick Post, bird fancier, and see if parakeets wero apt to go back to the "fold " Dick thought it unlikely but since Dickie had a leg band, there was a possibility he might be found and returned to the rightful owner. The flight look place on a Tuesday. Thursday evening Audrey -Single called Mabel and inquired if they had lost a bird, one with a leg band. It happened so strangely. Audrey's little son Greg went to the- door and in flew Dickie, glad to get in a house. However he played hard tq get, but with the combined efforts of Greg, and the Miller boys, Scott and Dennis, the bird finally landed in a cage a neighbor had loaned. Another call ,to Dick who told them Sam- sons had lost; a bird, arid in a short time Dickie was again at home with Mom and Pop, a, weary little bundle of feathers who has now recovered and chirps cheerfully after his escapade. » n * The p'asi week has been a .nice Morjorie Houck Of Lone Rock Engaged To Wed America's biggest little delivery truck!

There is a strong resemblance to mama Joan Wolcott Kern and 'the late- grandma Josephine Wolcott. * * « I had the nurses and personne here running in circles trying to find the little magazine tha wasn't there. I was so sure I hac a fourth copy of the "lowan" and since two were from the library and the one "lost" being from Jicre preyed heavily on my mind. That I should be so careless as to lose one! And in one room there aren't mapy places to lose' things. So when Beth Annis called me from the library and told me I was mistakenn and did not have the magazine at any time, my relief was immeasurable. Well, it all goes to show I'm geltine old and forgetful! * * > J ' • Julia Cady was here Saturday and we had such a nice visit.
