Tidbits by Evelyn Gld« Algonans Wilt remember Dr. and Mrs Louis Nelson, the lattei- being Edna Cole, one of the daughters oi Mrs Lyda Cole and granddaughter of the Wat- sorts 4 who will also be well remembered. The Nelsons' daughter, Mary Jane, died recently at Sioux City. Edna has been troubled with what might be described as an Arthur Godfrey hip. ^Dr. Nelson was unable to attend the services. The Nelsong have lived at Ames many years. Dr. Nelson practiced veterinary medicine. " ••* * * Ed Studer passed out candy id residents oh the first floor at Good Samaritan Home July 15, a (treat given him on his eighty- fourth birthday. He was born near Iowa Falls and later moved to a farm near Wesley. Mrs Studer died six years ago. His fam ily consists.of three sons, Vernon who travels in the interests of a college, Maurice, Garner, and Wilbur, Kanawha. He recalls the rszihg of the Ellsworth college at-Iowa Falls after it's survival of seventy-ifive years and remarked that he was born the year the college was built. ' » , * * Mr Studer knows ihe town o Kanawha well and I told 1 him '. had been there a year ago in October with Mr and. Mrs A. L iLong, Davenport, and Hazel Lusby. I told him .too it was there Jennie Ohristensen, pianist, and I with my violin, played a few numbers at a concert givefi at the church years and years ago. * * * Mrs Mait Kapp had callers from Bancroft Thursday afternoon. They stopped heffe to inquire .about visiting hours. I learned Mrs Stauder was a Bolster girl. Her husband Charles has also lived in Bancroft for •Some time. They knew my relatives, uncle Bert and aunt Eva Goddard and Harry and Mrs Stauder's brothers, Clarence and Francis were Harry's schoolmates. Sinall world! , * * - *! s v One never knows who is related to whom. Mrs Gottlieb Hanselman of LuVerne was here Wednesday to f see her husband and had with her a nephew, Gorman Wegemsr, Bismarck, No. ->ak. He is a brother of Elead •Vegener, hence a Hanselman - iVegener family tie-up. Mrs Hanselman is mournifrg the death of their parakeet Mickie, * * . * It begins to look a» though Mrs Mayme Dacken will not be making her home here after the last of July, 6r possibly a little later. .At present she is with her son and daughter - in - law at Wheaton, 111., and the question ti whether or not to come back here or remain there where she has a home, now that her grandson will be coming from South America to make his home with her and enroll in high school. Mrs Dacken's son-in-law and daughter are missionaries in South America and school facilities are not such that the lad can further his education there. Her friends are hoping she changes her mind and decides to return here. We can argue that it is easier to raise a lad in a smaller town and he will have a much better chance for making friends in a smaller school and the benefits of a closer church relationship. City dwellers, do you want a debate? * * * The prayer, continued—"Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally it is possible that I •may be mistaken — keep me reasonably sweet; I do not wani to be a saint — some of them are hard to live with — but a sour old woman is one of the crowning works of the devil — make me thoughtful but not moody; helpful but not bossy. ' With my vast store of wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all — but Thou knowest Lord, that I want a few friends at the end." — Fine. » * * Marg Dahl and her grandson Bob Pratt, Clear Lake, visited me briefly-the other evening. They had been here to see, 'Marg's mother, Mrs Agnes Laidiey. Bob looks amazingly., like his grandfather, the late Howard Vinson. * * • A new nurse has joined the staff here, Beverly Zumach, R.N., Whittemore. Antoinette Bonn-1 stetter had to resign because of a severe allergy to certain drugs here. We miss hen I am'Sure •Miss Zumach will be very efficient. Mrs Floyd Holt, R.N., is also on the staff. * * * •• When Donnie Smith picked up copy the other day four women were in the room, plus myself, making it look like quite a party. Don looked us over, then said, "I'll pour." His three year old son, Bill, is a chip off the old block (if I dare call Don a block). He was at grandma Dot's "ricli- cokolas day." When asked what day it was he replied, "Father's Day." » * * David Hutchins is employed at the Okobojis at the Boy Scout camp and in order to see moro of him and have him with the family while his aunt Marguorita Dalziel is here from Corona De) Mar, Calif., the parents and grandmother, Mr and Mrs Eugene Hutchins and Mrs Hazel Lusby, have taken a cottage at the Oko- bojis. A week has already passed of the three Marguerite will spend here. * * * Thank you. Frances Wiese, for your note and items. Do it again, I like it. » * * Little Paul Orton called on me a week ago Sunday and was accompanied by his parents, Dennis and Teresa and grandma Myrna. Poor little fellow — he didn't know where he hurt worse, top end or lower end. Teeth coming in at one end and flhig'h sore from a polio shot at the other. He put his little hand on his ,hip and gave a little cry. We knew he was saying "What a little guy has to endure — phooey on grown-ups." * * « Looking forward 50 years seems an eternity. Looking back-' ward half a century seems almost like day before yesterday. Myrtle Turnbaugh probably gave little thought to 50 years aheacl when she served as bridesmaid at the marriage of her friend, Lillian Lorentzen, to Albert Lundberg at Britt. June 28 the couple observed their golden wedding anniversary at their home in Forest City. Myrtle was among the guests and was taken there by Rose Sigsfoee. It is needless to say the '%ride" and her attendant were greatly olatod ftt bfinpt to- again to talk over old gether times. The Notion 8U***i» guson. Keokuk, Paulino Morrow, and Eleanor, VermHllon, S. p., nre on a nice vacation trip together. Edna joined Pauline and they met Eleanor in Los Angeles. ' A card from Pauline to her brother and sisler-in-lnW, Mr and Mrs" Milton Norton, Sent from East Glacier Park, Mont., says in part," "Will be here two days, two at Waterton Lake, then toward homo, Via Minneapolis. Paul (Pauline's son Paul Woostcr) will meet us at Atlantic." \ * * * A letter from Andy Norwood, Tacoma, Wgsh'., to Milton Norton and passed on to me at Mr Norwood's suggestion, mentioned tho partnership years ago of Milton's uncle and father, A. W. Winden and F. S. Norton, in the lumber business. There were two Winden boys, Burton and Raymond. The clipping mentioned changes in the Tacomn Savings nnd Loan company nnd the picture of Raymond who it says joined the firm 36 years ngo as a teller and became vice-president in 1945. Another clipping, dated July 11 1959, mentioned Joan Stensen Winden ('Mrs William W.) was one of the top winners in the San Francisco Opera debut' auditions She will sing with the San Francisco opera in the coming season. She is a mezzo sporano. Mr Winden is also a singer. Both are teachers in Santa Barbara. Andy also mentioned his brother Sam who is leaving August 10 on a tour of 11 European countries. * + * Mr and Mrs Arthur Benschoter have been visited by Mr and Mrs James McKeehan, Homesdale, Pa., Mrs Kalhryn Vedder, Esther* ville, and Margaret Trabert, Milford. Mrs McKeehan, Mrs Vedder and Mrs Benschoter taught school together at Ringsted 30 years ago. It must have been a lot of fun reminiscing. * * * Speaking of reminiscing, I did some of that Saturday afternoon when Mrs Frank ' Thompson, 'Burt, came here with her son and mistook my room for the office. I suppose I do look rather official behind my desk with it's typewriter. I soon learned that she is the former Josie Johnson, nf M.iry Johnson ftau OMrs rank) the Into Mrs Emma Cos- grovo and George Johnson. Get). ed quite like a relative for and my father were business inrtncrs ninny years. And Stove, 'he foslor brother, worked for )nd and George when hr wns ft <;en;>Ri> lad and I was a littld Jirl about, five or six years tild. I remember so well the Thompsons imd moved ,to Algona from • hoir farm and mother nnd 1 pass 1 their home one day when we \vn-p mil ibr a stroll. (By that I had reached the whpol stage) Mrs Thompson en mo from the porch to tnlk with us and was not happy in town. She yearned for the farm where living costs were fnr less she said. "\Vhy, do you know," I rrincm her M> well sho said, "We even have to pay for tho Water wo u-;»'." it wasn't long till they moved back.
