Tidbits by Evelyn LOW GRANDSTAND PRICES Adults - $1.00 Children - 50c j COME OFTEN! THE GATE IS FREE) Congraiulalloru, Mr and Mrs W, A. Foster on your fiftieth wedding anniversary, 1 hope you have monymore years of hap- pirtess together, f don't know where the years have gone. * * * My meals h«r« are t*rv«d on plates with the three divisions. I was discussing it the other day and mentioned that one of the girls had said they don't use many of them because they don't stack well. 1 said, "It isn't the plate that counts, it's what's on it. If it hasn't got it here (up front) it hasn't got it," This slogan will have a familiar ring to T.V. watchers, i * * * Wednesday, August 12 was a very pleasant day spent with friends and dinner enjoyed with them. The hostesses were Mrs Myrta Wallace and her sister, Marie Grover. Other guests were Mrs Hortense Ferguson, 'Mrs Adda Price, Mrs Ed Hagg and Mrs Grace BreclcbiU. One thing I must mention 'because I had never seen servers like them. On the way home Mrs Ferguson, Velma and I were talking about how cute they were. I wonder how many of you have ever seen tomato juice servers — clear glass — what shall I call 'them globes? Well, when filled, they look exactly like tomatoes and there is a hole in the top and glass tube to use -to extract tho liquid. Mrs Wallace confessed that she saw them some "timo ago in her sister's refrigerator, set there to chill, she offered Ho "peel the tomatoes." * » * . The house is of great interest too. It rates a place in House Beautiful, 'American Homes and Better Homes and Gardens. It is filled with such interesting and, beautiful things. It would -take rne hours -to describe it all so I will mention -it as collections of madonnas, figurines of lovely ladies, bells arid bottles. I^ take up only the subject of ties. One was a five gallon glass jug which was once filled-with distilled water for use in car batteries. The other bottles \vhich were unusual were "twins" and had designs cut on-the'sides; The tops had little disks with numerals on them and like a safe, could only be opened if correct inumbers ware dialed. Mrs Wallace said this was ito keep the servants from, opening the liquor, for only the .master had 1 ithe combination. These 'bottles are <very old and valuaible It certainly is a unique ;\y.ay in which to keep the "fire water" in the right channels. : We tiave had this'experience everyone of us, losing somethin and being so sure of just th place we put it, Tillie SteLrima is the latesit to,come to my notice She was so sure she had;left he glasses on -the dresser in Roy Haag's room. A thorough search there, no spectacles. A call- thome, riot there. 'But; when .she/, got into her car ito drive home, there were the glasses. 1 found a plate of cookies ant birthday card from 'Marg Dahl. Sorry to have missed -the charrce for a chat tout will see her soon when she comes to see her mother, Mrs Agnes Laidley. The mail brought rne several greeting cards. Thank you Ruth Cook, Sigfid Kohlhaas and Yarda Ellis, for your cards and Estelle and Sherman Little of San Rafael, Calif., and letters from my cousin Lola Swinney, Mentone, Calif., and Mabel Livingston, Phoenix, Ariz. I will give you excerpts from the letters after I add thanks to Ruth and Glen Raney for the lovely "glads." * * * Mabel says "Wish I could run in on you and say "Mi Evelyn, happy birthday." I wish 80 loo, "I remember all the good trip's we had in my little Ford. Have not spent much lime, in Phoenix this summer. Charles (her husband) could, not take the heat and we have been up at Pres cott, Ariz, It has been 'wonderful there. Nights always cool. Each afternoon we would lake a ride and it was -fun to see who would see the first deer. iNo thing td'See four or five grazing at one time. We were in hope.i to get to Algona this month bull don't know if we can make it." * * # I envy my cousin Lola and her husband Chauncey who are going on just .the sort of trip I'd like o make."

The Dick Allen's'little daughter has teen named Mary Lou, a name 'grandma Bernar dine""" has long admired and planned. ; to use- l)ad ahe ever been blessed with a girl!* A girl was not in the cards .but she can ,bask in the reflected glory. The sisters, Debbie and Sandra approved of the name too. . ; *.,,*.*, .; An angle worm, a grub worm nd a night crawler were all the ame to me -till I talked, with firs Allen Bullock the other day. She set me straight on "worms' and also told me about their re- ent fishing trip on which they caught fifty bluegills. I didn't know a bluegill either and she jave a good description. T asked how come she knew so much. She replied she ihad 'been brought up on a farm arid had always oved to fish. What about (that Jzzie and Hazel and Rose? * + * The D. K. Chiquets were in Chicago while on a 'two week vacation. They saw all the sights and had a fine 'time. Mrs C. said "We saw the White Sox beat the Yanks" and there was such satisfaction in her voice, I ligured they were not Yank fans. They also took a ride on lake Michigan; * * * , As I remarked once before, we do not have Whistler's mother here but we do have a whistler. I don't see ihow he can stay puckered so long. The other night I -was amused at hearing "The Isle of Capri", surely a strange tune for a man of around 85. "When You and I Were Young, Maggie" I can understand, 'but 'The Is}e" — well, 'he thinks snodern. And believe me, he "swung it." The rythum is a little tricky but .he had it. .Who is he? Ed Studer of Corwith, ' * * * This ha* been a nice week, full of activities which I love. . One night the ".thre§ Muskateers" and Leora St, John took in the drive- in theatre showing "Some Luke It Hot." -I think it is a lot of |un sitting in the privacy of a car, commenting favorably or other wise on 'fche picture^ having the sound at the volume we wa'n/t, and nibbling refreshments from the nearby stand.
