SpHlville and the lovely clocks, Prairie du Che-!n and it's Villa Louis, and other points of interest in the area. They went to Decorah, which I hadn't, but the museum must, be very interesting. I forgot to ask them if they drove up 'Tike's Peak" out of McGregor. There is a lovely view of the Mississippi from there. Ruth also brought two pic«?s of lemon angel food cake and a bouquet of fall flowers. The cake is delicious. Try it, some of you cake bakers. "Mrs Hanselman dropped in while they were here.

Did you ever hear of such crazy cat? Oh, but. he was __te -L Bob. a white Angora, the ultimate in cats, and I've never wanted another pet to replace him. * * * Then there is the man, married since 1951, who couldn't tell mo the names of his wife's relatives when he attempted to give mo a news item. Was his face rod! * * « Barbara Wicks and Gloria Joseph, members of Girl Scout troop 22, presented me with a box of writing paper today after school. Each sheet bore colored decralions, fall leaves and most artistic I assure you. This work is a credit toward'badges. The leaders of this group are Mrs Don Wood and Mrs Duane Jensen. I invited the girls to come again unbounding. » + • Had a phone chat with E«ihe* who is croaking like a frog. She has a bad cold which has settled in the voice box. fiernadine wasn't talking loo well either and Jim wasn't far behind.

Work on some roofs had to be discontinued; - and many finished buildings had roofs blown off. Don said the wind was reported at 75 knots and he believed it was at least twice that.

I met her in the hall and told her this is'a very pleasant place to stay but I hoped she would soon be able to be in her own home, another way of saying "Good Health .to you, Mrs McW." too. To me that Venice business is still a joke — looks like a drainage ditch — certainly a far cry to Venice of our dreams. A stop at Julia Cady's apartment where we viewed the gifts — so many of them it was quite bewildering. A ohat with the prospective bride, her escort brother, Pat, friends who were there and an inspection of Julia's compact, charming apartment. Thence to the church, hovered over by ushers, hostesses, >etc — and then the big moment when the organ boomed out the wedding march which was preceded by a vocal number. Comes a lump in the throat, a little moisture in the eyes, and lo — Mr and Mrs Murray Lawson turn and walk down the aisle. A handsome couple, smiling happily and ready to greet everybody. More aid by masculine friends, Pat taking charge, and down we go to the dining room for the refreshments and chats .with Dr. and Mn Fincham and son John of Ames Mr and Mrs Glen Doty and a few .others. Dr. Fincham and my late cousin Dr. Gerald Cady were close friends and I met him many years ago. The Doty's daughte Jeanne married Gerald's olde son, Dr. Jerry 1 Cody who is with the navy air force and held up at Laos with this affair in the far east. And of course there was the meeting at Julia's with Carolyn, Pat's wife. Three years ago Hazel, Lizzie and I attended their wedding at Rock Island. So now the last of the' Cadys is married, except me, and if I could kidnap the bridegroom — seriously, he is a splendid fellow. of her mother's birthday, Friday evening at Titorika.

Now Paying .Current Earnings Per Annum Compounded Semi-Annually HOME FEDERAL I had such a nice visit with i^plen Dingley and her cousin. Jaunita Donohue, Hollywood Calif. And she's right in the heart of that interesting place- Hollywood and Vine streets What could be nicer? She war quite enchanted with the view from my window, her artistic eyes catching at once the beauty of the maple trees and the sloping lawns nearby. Jaunita was a commercial artist some 'time ago, a part of her work being painting drop scenes for theatrical purposes. I forgot to ask her if she was doing anything in her line now. I did offer her the use of my window and the warmth of my room to do some sketches. I hope she decides to do it. . The brothers John, Bay and Darold will alsd be well remembered. John and his wife are leaving soon to make their home in Hawaii, Bay lives in Chicago, and is married and Darold is unmarried and he and Jaunita make their home together. Jaunita loves Iowa, Algona in particular and I was happy to hear her say. "It is much prettier than California." * * * I wrote io Mary Ellen Kelley of Marcus, telling her how much I enjoyed her "And With The Dawn, Rejoicing."
