She told me an announcement had been received from friends whose children are aged 21, 14 and now this new arrival* Quite a stretch of time. The Smiths have a little fellow who arrived ten years behind a brother. How these late comers will be loved, and maybe spoiled, but who cares. Enjoy them while yoU can, They soon are grown up. The Dean Taylors had Herbert Zielske, Lake Mills, as dinner guest Sept 20. He is the father of Mrs Taylor. A phone call was p_ut through to Mrs Zielske, who with her mother Mrs Blanche Jenks, Nevada, is visiting relatives in Los Angeles. Mrs Rex Taylor answered me with ft very soft voice. I asked het if she had laryngitis. Is was just a poor connection. She laughed and said it might be a "weakened condition." • • » » Tuesday—Is there an epidemic of stiff knees? Myrtle Turnbaugh complained of a sudden attack, and She said Margaret Reid has been having • such troubles too. Well, my case is chronic. * * * The slorm Sunday night didn't alarm me though 1 did realize the wind was pretty strong. It kept the nurses busy closing" and opening windows. Beulah Wallukait said her daughter Betty Weydert and family look to the basement tor awhile. Beulah said the wind blew her flower pots over and upset the lawn chairs.

Makes my mouth water to write about it. * * * A worried husband gave me a report on a little social activity of his wife's, in her absence. He wondered what her reaction would be. I hope he isn't in the dog house. In looking through the pledges to sororities I ran across the name Davalyn Nelson, of Louisville, Ky., pledged Delta Zeta. It doesn't take a Sherlock Holmes to deduct that her father must have been a David. Davalyn—well, that's -a new one,,for sure. Wednesday—What memories a Ringling picture brings back. How well I remember thfe night before it was to show here—a heavy rain which made the unpaved roads puddles of mud. The swearing of the men as they passed our home-cursing the town, the roads, the weather and everything in general. The toiling down and up the hill here by G. S. to the show grounds near" the old soft water pond, the hay placed in the road, the wagons detour big behind the farm house to keep on higher ground and avoid that Jeep mud hole on the lower road. The going to the depot early to watch the circus come in, only to be told by earlier arrivals cooing back, that the circus wouldn't •be in till the middle of the fofe- hdort.'

The circus got ihto financial difficulties in Texas and Pat wioie home lor money to get back to Iowa, which grandpa sent him, and Hugh had to appeal to relatives too. * * * The Albert Weishaars do not lack for progeny.

Her name was drawn at a local store on the recent Dollar Day project which entitles* her to a dress made of any material she chooses, up to a dollar per yard, and the garment to be made by Ann Clark. * * * Beverly Zumach, one of the R.Ns here, is in a tizzy planning a program for the silver wedding anniversary September 27 of her parents Mr and Mrs Herbert Zumach.
